The Democratic party lias been in

;, When Jxmisiaca was purchased by a
Democratic President tho opposition
condemned the purebajr. The Dem
ocrats annexed TeiRS in defiancu of
the hostility cf all the factions that
opposed Democracy. ' It was through
tbe ins'rnmentality of the Do mo
cratic party that California . was
acquired and the immense ' do
main cut ol which new States
and Territorial S a:es have been
carved, and out of .(whch.,(iUer Terri.-

Democratic parly has not only ac
quired the territory which hai con
tributcd to the wealth and area cf the
country, but it has shown its willing
ness and ability to secure to the peo
ple the land it obtained for them
Since the inauguration cf Cleveland
the Demccrati have restored to tbe
pnblio domain 60,482,240 acres of land
which preceding Republican Con
greeses had granted to railroad
corporations which failed to comply
with the conditions of the grant?
The Vorty-e'ghth Congress passed billi
restoring 19,010,880 acres, and the
Forty-nitith Canvress passed bills re
storing 28,b71,3G0 arret. There was
also a contingent forfeiture of 2,000,000
acres, more. This represents 78,878
square miles, r,r 315,672 farms ot 100
acres each. The extent of these re'
stored lands will be butter understood
when it Is known that they exceed the
area of the six New England States
and New Jersey and Delaware, with
enough territory left over to make two
such States as Rhode Island. In ad
dition to the for eitums actually made
the Democratic Home has pasted
three bills which p.oprsi to restore
38,430,941 acres more to the public do
main. There are alBO on the House
calendar, with favorable reports from
the Committes on PuVic Laudcdlls to

13,067,214 acres additional, Adding
those already forlt itod.end those which
it is proposed ti forfeit, gives Ilia ag

No man ever dropped mere complete- .

here with a flourish of trumpets and
for a litlle while appeared fro quently
in public, and l is neme ws oft-n
men ioned iu the r apere. Some wb;s
peis, n. t abogether complimentary to
bis character, however, had prectded
him, but aa it waa well advertised that
he wea coning to Sanx Frnnciaco, it
ws thouht, of course, th't the

when the train arrived at Oakland to
find a toliia'y priest, accompanied
by a layman, tue only chuici rpre-
ei-n'f.tivei on hnd to receive

M his heaclquart-rs Toere are two

one headed by the Archb sb.op auo
the other by the Soiie'yof Jtsup, who
have the ex'entivo College of Ut Ig

branches are anything but cordial.
Miir Capri fiateraized with the Jeau
lis and delivered several lectures un
der tte r auspicts, tut ws almost en
tirely ignored by other Citbolice. He
waa re allowed to occupy tbe pulpit
in any church. Mny cf the most
prominent and wealthy society penple
aro Romanists, arid Mgr. Capel made
every effort to secure tbe entres into
the charmed circles, but it was almost
entirely unsuccessful. Perhaps the
publishfd statement in tie local pa
i ere tbat he had c me bere expeclii g
in some manner to s core a lare
amount of money to pay hia ebts in
England may have had some effect in
preventing the realization of bU
ambition. ( Mgr. Carel had not
been here long befote turners as

compatible with Lis religious preten
tions, were in circulation. A great
i caudal was ciuFed by tha prvlate, so
it is end on gncd authority, woi e un

cupants of the bousn were ddepl v scan
daiiz d by the conduct of the Moneig

lady insulted as prominent in the
Catholic church. Capel fiardtv fell in
w.th an Italian Count ntiui' d Valeusin,
who bad married the daughter of one
of the wealthy families of this S ate
named McAnley. Valeusin owned a
beauti'ul tanch on tbo Sicramento

abode, and from that lima was no
mora heard of m public.
in a short time, however, rtranse
rumors were heard benoath tbe sur

appealed to f ir a e eitlement of d Ser

The former made to eecrot of the
