THURSDAY. OCTOBER 9. 1898.
McKinley's tariff bill is based on
tlie principle on which Dr. Samuel
Johnson's Billingsgate fishmonger treat
ed his eels. He not only skinned them
alive, but cursed them for wriggling.
The Republican nominee for governor
sticks to the northern and central coun
ties like a porous plaster. When he can
spare the time to get down here he will
find that his celebrated five thousand
majority has vanished into thin air.
The board of supervisors is display
ing some restiveness at charges of ex
travagance and malversation made
against them, and they have called
on the grand jury now in session to in
vestigate them. This is the right way
to meet such allegations.
We place the entire party ticket at
the head of our editorial columns today,
and shall at the earliest opportunity re
view it in detail. It is admittedly a
strong ticket in all its parts, and the
very best ever presented to the people
of this county by any political conven
Col. Markham has changed his ora
torical running mate, the resounding
notes of George A. Knight having re
placed the feebler ones of Harry Moore
house. There has been precious little of
the pyrotechnical in speech-making on
the Republican side during the present
In his last Argonaut Mr. Frank M.
Pixley, with his usual force, pooh-poohs
the idea that Mr. Pond is in any whit
indebted to Mr. Buckley for his nomi
nation. The attempts of the Call,
Chronicle and other Republican news
papers to make anything out of this
stuff have fallen so still-born that they
simply excite the derision of sensible
One of the amusing things in the
Republican press is the attempt to
protect Markham from the deserved
ridicule which his puerile speeches have
brought down upon him. The efforts to
befog the popular intelligence as to
these things have been gross failures,
and the tall Pasadenan will go down to
history as the possessor of an intellect
as subtle as that of Dogberry himself.
The ticket selected by the Democratic
convention is the strongest ever
nominated in this county. Its personnel
could not have been improved on.
When in addition to this truthful state
ment one is able to point to a platform
like that of the Democracy, and bears in
mind the fact that the conjuncture is
specially favorable for Democratic suc
cess, there is no occasion to borrow any
trouble as to the result.
It would be a great pity not to send a
man so admirably equipped as Col. John
P. Irish, the accomplished editor of the
Alta, to congress. He would do this
section a world of good. While Mr. Mc-
Kenna has been by no means the worst
congressman ever sent by California to
tbe national house of representatives,
as compared with Irish he is a mere
pigmy. If elected, the great editor
would at once take a commanding posi
tion in congrese. I
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 1800.
THE LOVELY M'KINLEY BILL.
On Monday the much lauded Mc-
Kinley bill went into effect. Some ex
amples of the changes resulting from it
will be found of interest. The old rate
on ale and beer was 35c, it is now 40c.
per gallon. On anvils the rate was 2c.
per pound against 2 l *,c. now. Bacon
and hams have peen advanced from 2c.
to sc. per pound. Barley from 10c. to
30c. per bushel. Beans from 10c.
to 40c. per bushel. Beef, mutton,
and pork from lc. to 2c. per pound.
Brooms and brushes from 25c. and
30c. ad valorem respectively to 35c. and
40c. Champagne from $7 to $8 per doz
en, and cigars and cigarettes from $2.50
to $4.50 and 25 per centum. Corn-meal
from 10c. to 20c. Feather dusters from
20 to 35 per centum ad valerem. Laces
from 40 per centum to 00 per centum ad
valorem. Maccaroni, which was free, is
now placed at 2c. per pound. Needles
from 25 to 35 per centum ad valorem.
Oat-meal from l _c. per pound to lc.
Olive oil is increased from 25 per centum
ad valorem to 35 per centum. Peas
from 10c. per bushel to 20c. Potatoes
from 15c. to 25c. per bushel. Spectacles
and eye-glasses from 40 per centum ad
valorem to 60.
Wool and cotton products are espec
ially taxed. The old rate on wool and
hair of the first class was 10c. The new
rate is 11c. On the second class
the rate is unchanged, but on the third
class of the value of 13c or less per
pound, the rate is advanced from 2'oc
to 32 per centum. On the third class
value 13c or less, including camel's hair,
which was free, the rate has been made
32 per centum. On the third class of
13c value or over, the rate has been
changed from 5c to 50 per centum.
On cotton goods the unbleached is
changed from 3c. to 3'oC. per
square yard. The bleached from 4c.
to 4}<,c. per square yard. Dyed or
printed cotton cloth advanced sc.
to 5J- S c. per square yard. More
than that the following proviso is in
"That on all cotton cloth exceeding
150 and not exceeding 200 threads to
the square inch, counting the warp and
rilling, not bleached, dyed, colored,
stained, painted or printed, valued at
over eight cents per square yard;
bleached, valued at over ten cents per
square yard; dyed, colored, stained,
painted or printed, valued at over twelve
(13) cents per square yard, there shall
be levied, collected and paid a duty of
forty-five (40) per cent.
An analysis of the bill shows that the
tax, for such it is, on all necessities is
increased. This tax the consumer, be
it well understood, has to pay. The
New York Herald says of the matter:
"The history of nations probably does
not record the enactment of a measure
which is so well calculated to burden a
people with needless, inexcusable taxa
tion. The cost of nearly all the neces
sities of life is enhanced to the con
sumer for the pretended object of build
ing up home industries. The cheaper
the goods invariably the higher the rate
of the duty. This is especially true of
all articles of food, drink and wearing
apparel, sugar alone excepted. There
are no foreign markets in it for the
American farmer, for its effect is
wholly in the direction of restrict
ing trade with other peoples. There is
no outlet in it for the surplus produc
tion of the American manufacturer, for
he is denied the right to purchase his
raw materials in the cheapest market.
Especially does the new law weigh
heavily upon the American importer,
the rate of duty in many classes of goods
being so high as to render their impor
tation impossible. It has the importing
business under ban and serves notice
on those engaged in it to relinquish or
Good for the Times. Sunday's issue
of this amiable journal pays the De
mocracy the highest compliment ever
paid by the organ of one party to its op
ponents. It has one of its extraordi
nary cartoons, in which it represents
"The Democracy" as "Political dignity,
decency, truth, justice and honor."
Whether it is the disgust with its own
party at making it take the hated Walter
S. Moore to its unwilling embraces, or
whatever has caused it to tell the truth,
it has done itself credit in this unique
instance. But it should have kept
out of view the slave block on which its
delegates were sold. We fear that the
idea of sale has so taken possession of
our neighbor that it can't keep it out. of
mind. In fact, the idea of politics as a
branch of trade has so firmly intrench
ed itself in the Republican conscious
ness, that it can conceive of no party ac
tion not based on barter.
The Associated Press has a line fac
ulty of discovering enthusiasm where
none exists. No one who knows the
profound contempt in which Presi
dent Harrison is held would take any
stock in the stories of the wild welcome
extended to him by the Hoosiers. They
had a chance of showing that public
functionary what they thought of him in
1888, when he barely succeeded in carry
ing his own state by the skin of his
teeth. The president is popular no
where, and he is even less popular now
than in 1888. He is entirely too much
of a trimmer to excite any furor amongst
the masses. Not even excepting Hayes,
he is the most thoroughly played out
politician that ever occupied tlie White
" How we Republicans do love the
colored brother!" At the Republican
county convention, one of the delegates
put in nomination for constable a col
ored man, the representative of the
" 1400 colored voters" claimed as the
slaves of the party. When the votes
were announced the tale for Robert C.
Owens, (colored) was 0! The gentleman
who made the nomination even was too
true to the traditions of his party to cast
a vote for him. Will the voters of that
race ever come to an understanding of
just how the love of the Republicans for
them always evaporates in words ?
The nomination of Judge Enoch
Knight for senator yesterday afternoon
was a pleasant surprise to the Democ
racy. When that gentleman, after he
had been nominated by acclamation, was
waited upon in his office and informed
of what bad en done, be was taken
completely aback. Until that moment
he was innocent of any knowledge that
his name had been spoken of by any
body for the nomination. And when he
was brought into the convention he pro
tested against accepting it until he had
had time to reason with himself about it.
But there was no time for reflection.
The honor had been thrust upon him,and
he was prevailed upon to appear on the
platform. He had not uttered ten words
before every man in the convention real
ized that they had nominated a man of
brains —of wide and catholic views Up
on state and national policy. When he
finished his short address, it was evi
dent that the convention had put for
ward a candidate for senator who would
bring dignity, ability and statesmanlike
power into the canvass.
While Colonel Markham has appar
ently eyes for nothing but the up coun
try just now, he has in truth been more
than interested in the intrigues and
wire-pullings which governed the late
Republican county convention. It is
said upon pretty good authority that he
insisted on the re-nomination of Aguirre
for sheriff, and the selection of Walter S.
Moore for the assembly, it is pretty well
understood, was an offshoot of the trad
ing done at the Sacramento convention.
Such interference rarely helps a ticket
along. The people are very restive at
the idea of barter and sale. No better
means could have been devised to insure
the defeat of Aguirre and Moore than
this action of the Republican standard
During his last trip to the east Judge
R. M. Widney told the editor of the
Boston Herald some wholesome truths
about Southern California. He pointed
out the fact that the men who run
down the prosperity, present and pros
pective, of this section, have neither
money nor interest in the country. One
of the judge's arguments must have had
a remarkable effect on his interlocutors.
"The last report of the state viticuL
turist," said he, "shows that the average
net profits from all the raisin vine
yards in the state amounted to $257
per acre." It does not take a man long
to make an impression when he can
cite facts like those.
The voters who will take the trouble
to read the resolutions adopted by the
Democratic county convention will
scarcely fail to perceive that they are
dealing with a victory compelling in
strument. Its strong and scathing ar
raignment of the Republican party, lo
cal, state and national, has all the fire
and force of truth. It would puzzle
any one to tell how the Republicans
could hope for success with such a rec
ord as theirs, and with opponents who
know so well how to show it up. This
is not only an off year with our Repub
lican friends but it will be a land mark.
The cool assumption by a portion of
the Republican press of Los Angeles
that the Democratic county ticket has
no chance of election is exceedingly re
freshing, with a third of their own party
standing around and breathing disaffec
tion. There need be no surprise if the
Democrats should carry their ticket from
top to bottom. There is an immense
difference between the years 1888 and
1890, both in the character and the in
clinations of the voters of Los Angeles.
A notable feature of the Democratic
convention was the able and smooth
manner in which its deliberations were
directed by its chairman, Major George
S. Patton. He exhibited a knowledge of
parliamentary law, a suavity and a de
cision that few people in a similar sta
tion could have approached. Consider
ing the fact that Major Patton's exper
ience of deliberative bodies has not been
helped by a legislative career, he is de
serving of all praise.

They Endorse the Ticket Selected by
At a large and enthusiastic meeting of
the Pond Spanish-American club last
evening, an executive committee, con
sisting of A. J. Monroy, R. F. Sepulve
da, J. S. Redona, M. Marque, Robert
Dominguez and N. M. Quirolo, was
appointed. The meeting was addressed
by R. F. Sepulveda, who strongly advo
cated E. D. Gibson for sheriff. He said:
"We want a competent man in the of
fice. We want a business man.
Let the Spanish-American (.voters of
this city and county stand together on
this election and they will make Martin
Aguirre think he's "not in it" on the
4th of November next."
Robert Dominguez followed in an elo
quent address, urging the necessity for
electing John T. Gaffey as member of
the state board of equalization.
J. C. Redona made an eloquent ad
dress regarding all the candidates rep
resented to the people by the Demo
cratic county convention. The meeting
A Suspension of Operations at Camp
G. E. Bigot of St. Louis came up last
evening from Alamo, the Lower Cali
fornia mining camp. He stated to a
Herald reporter last night that in con
sequence of a cut in miners wages by
the International company of from %A to
$3 per day, that the miners had struck
work and* little was no-Jv being done.
The El Paso mine will reopen in about
a month. The record of the camp, Mr.
Bigot said, was better than any other
on the coast, for it has shipped out more
gold from the surface to fifty-foot levels,
than any other place. Mr. Bigot had a
number of fine samples of quartz stud
ded with large nuggets of free gold.
