Hon. S. M. White, in replying to the
call of the Democratic county commit
tee of Los Angeles, asking him to take
the field for the purpose of electing a
legislature favorable to his own election
to the United States senate, has ad
dressed the following letter to Mr. Ger
main, chairman of the committee:
Los Aniiei.es, Cal, May 29, 1890.
To Eugene Germain, Chairman of the
Democratic Executive Committee of Los
Dear Sir—Some time ago tlie Demo
cratic executive committee of Los An
geles county was kind enough to pass a
resolution requesting me to announce
myself as a candidate for the United
States senate. The committee also at
tracted my attention to the growing sen
timent favoring the selection of United
States senators by the direct vote of the
people. Owing to numerous interrup
tions, the nature of which it is not ne
cessary to explain, my answer has been
After fully considering the matter, I
have determined to act in accordance
with the suggestion which you have
made, and to authorize my name to be
used in that connection.
I fully agree with you that it is essen
tial that a change should he made in the
present method of selecting the mem
bers of the higher branch of congress.
The voters of the country are as well
qualified to pass upon the merits of a
candidate for the senate as they are to
choose members of the house of repre
sentatives or state senators.
The present system as a relic of the
federal idea. It was a concession
to those who had no faith in
the masses. It is undeniable that much
of the corrupt ion in modern politics is due
to the circumstance that the senatorial
office is filled by legislative vote. The
electors of the country are vitally inter
ested in the membership of tlie United
States senate. They certainly are enti
tled to be consulted, yet there is more
than one case on record where they have
been treated to a surprise by the sudden
appearance of a senator who could never
have received the popular indorsement,
and who was unknown as a candidate,
and whose qualifications had been suc
The people are as trustworthy as any
legislature. They can be relied upon to
designate some one who will at least re
flect their wishes. During the last legis
lative session at Sacramento, a resolu
tion introduced by Mr. Renison, of
Monterey, was passed, favoring the pop
ular election oi United States senators,
and I voted on the passage of that reso
lution in accordance with my present
I do not consider that this is an oppor
tune time to fully discuss the issues of
the approaching campaign. I will, how
ever, say that, in my judgment, one of
the clearest propositions presented will
be whether the electors of California are
prepared to ratify the purchase of a seat
in the United States senate. This issue
will be tendered irrespective of my can
didacy. No aspiration that I may have
will in the least affect it. The election
of a Republican legislature will re
sult in the indorsement of transactions
of which honest Republicans, the rank
and file of the party, have never ap
If I am chosen to the high office, I
will certainly exert all my energies to
wards the accomplishment of good to
every part of the country. I believe
that I will be able to attend to the
necessities of my state, as far as they
may be intrusted to me, without the
slightest partiality for any section, and
as a faithful guardian of the integrity of
the entire commonwealth. I certainly
have no interests which can conflict
with my duties as senator.
During the coming campaign, I will
endeavor to visit different portions of
the state, as has been my habit, and
publicly discuss the questions involved,
not merely to forward my personal as
pirations, but in the interest of tlie en
tire ticket. There are many other Dem
ocrats who are in all respects fully com
petent and thoroughly qualified to rep
resent California in the senate, who
may seek this place. In that event,
j their efforts as well as mine will be ex
pended in the endeavor to elect the
nominees of the Democracy, and if a
majority of the legislators returned con
cur in our political views, we will sub
mit our claims for their determination.
While I would certainly appreciate the
honor involved in my election to the
United States senate, I will nevertheless
be satisfied if my exertions contribute
in any degree to the elimination of
money as a determinative factor in sena
torial contests. I hope that the day is
not far distant when it will be uni
versally conceded that no man can be
elected to the United States senate from
the state of California by other than
honest and fair means. Yours, etc.,

She Attacks a Prospector in San
W. B. McDaniel, of Savannah, called
at the Herald office yesterday and re
lated the following adventure had with
a mountain lioness a few days ago in the
San Bernardino mountains. Mr. Mc-
Daniel and Mr. W. D. Baisley, of this
city, were prospecting, and became
separated for a short distance. Sud
denly Mr. McDaniel heard his companion
give several loud cries, and running to
his assistance found that a mountain
lioness had jumped upon him from an
adjoining crag. The animal partially
missed her aim, and only slightly tore
Mr. Baisley's clothes. He succeeded in
getting beyond her reach, and drawing
his gun "fired at her six times. The
sixth shot killed her. A few minutes
later they found her cub and killed it
also. They then skinned the animals,
and shortly afterwards returned to this
city, congratulating themselves on their
escape. The lioness measured six feet
from tip of nose to end of tail. Had her
jump been a little more accurate, Mr.
Baisley would probably have furnished
an excellent meal for herself and cub.

good-looking young man, apparently
about 86 years of age, frank and easy of

casual observer would decide unhesitat

of solid popularity,

in the Riviera. The season happened

now about a month."

is that the mistakes of the administra

this summer an up-hill job. If that
were not enough of a handicap they are
likely to accumulate plenty more diffi

me that the current is running in Mor

White in high estimation here in the

If he should be chosen to represent us

WHERE THE DANGER LIES.
The Mysterious and Sudden Ending; of
So Many Fully Accounted For.
The real danger from "Grippe" is in its after
effects. Nine-tenths of all deaths resulting are
from pneumonia. What is pneumonia? It is a
sudden stoppage and filling up of the lungs.
Thick, heavy poisonous mucous gets into the
air-cells and prevents breathing. They clog up
quickly, and death ensues. The only salvation
is to keep the lungs working and thus throw off
this terrible mucous. There is only one way in
which this can be done, and that is by stimu
lating them. Under the influence of a proper
amount of pure whiskey, the lungs draw In
deep, full breaths and throw out the poisonous
air each time it is exhaled.
But while this is true, and whiskey has saved
more lives than any other known remedy, if it
Is not pure whiskey It is liable to have'a bad
effect. If it contains fusel oil, a headache or a
foul tongue will be the result. On the other
bund, when an absolutely pure whiskey like
Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey is used, no ill effects
can by any possibility follow. Prof. Henry A.
Mott says: "The purity Of Duffy's Pure Malt
Whiskey (us simple, analytical tests will readily
Convince) is absolute, and should recommend It
to the highest public favor." To all we unhesi
tatingly say, insist upon having Duffy's, and do
not be persuaded to take any other.
I woin't I have long
since adopted an easier and
cleanlier way. A bottle of
and a sponge to keep my shoes
washed clean, save a deal of
labor and shoe leather.

Mrs. Gervaise Graham's Face Bleach
Makes the Skin Beautiful.
It is surely an unpardonable fault, if not a
sin, for a woman to neglect her personal ap
pearance. All women cannot be beautiful in
every particular, hut every woman may be
cleanly, sweet, attractive and lovable. A few
golden freckles or a sun-kissed cheek may not
detract from beauty, but there is no excuse for
the woman who, through ignorance or neglect,
allows her face to retain for very long such
hideous blemishes as sallowness, mothpatches,
blackheads or pimples. It is not difficult to
understand why the face grows dark or
snows other blemishes, while all the rest of
the body remains perfect in appearance. The
face being the outlet of expression for the body,
all tlie ill conditions hang their flag upon it.
The face is constantly exposed to climatic
changes, all the impurities that float in the
air are free to settle upon it. and by mixing with
the subaceous secretion they enter and clog the
pores. Again, the face has not the benefit of
theconstrnt friction which our clothing gives
to other parts of the body. Injurious cosmetics
are also too often the cause of a thick, murky
complexion. These are acknowledged facts,
and prove the necessity of proper core and at
tention to simply seep the complexion perfect;
if it has already become Imperfect, it requires
proper treatment to restore it. Mrs. Gervaise
Graham's Face Bleach removes sallowness, sun
burns, freckles, mothpatches, pimples—indeed,
all blemishes lodged in the skin, but doesjuot
bleach from the s»in the natural rosy color.
Freckles, mothpatches and other discolorations
are dissolved; blackheads, fleshworms and all
impurities of the pores are brought to the sur
face, where they dry and full off with the old
cuticle, Which gradually flukes off by rubbing
the face gently with a towel. The Face Hleach
is also a perfect cure for a coarse or stippled
skin.as the old cuticle is entirely but gradually
removed. While the old skin is thus being dis
posed of, the new cuticle is forming, soft and
smooth, pure and clear, and fine as that of an
Face Blench is not a cosmetic, but a remedy
which is to be discontinued when the disease is
cured. It is frequently recommended by phy
siciuns to their patients. It contains nothing
deleterious to the most delicate skin. From one
to three bottles are required, according to the
severity of the case. Price per bottle, 11.50.

Cucumber and Elder Flower Cream.
Every lady does not require Face Bleach, but
every lady does require something to cleanse,
soften and purify the skin, more especially
where soft water is not procurable. Soap and
water scarcely remove the impurities from the
surface of the skin, and never penetrate and
cleanse the pores us thoroughly as do emol
lients. Some very eminent dermatologists go
so far as to declare that women should never
apply soap and water to the face if they wish to
preserve their youthful appearance. Cucumber
and Elder Flower Cream contains all the cleans
ing and purifying qualities possible; it also
makes the skin beautifully soft, pure ami of a
satin-like texture and bloom, and keeps it free
from wrinkles. It is comqosed of milk of al
monds, cucumber juice and elder-flower extract,
and contains no vaseline, animal fat, glycerine
or other substance which would darken or
wither the skin, or cause a growth of hair on
