Washington, Oct. 20.—When adver
tisements for proposals for building a
harbor defense ram, 350 tons; a torpedo
boat, 112 tons; a swift torpedo cruieer,
760£ tons, were issued Saturday, it
marked the completion by the navy de
partment of all the work of new con
struction which it has been authorized
to undertake with two exceptions. These
are a submarine monitor and a dupli
cate of the Vesuvius, which, it is un
likely, will be constructed on the lines
originally laid down. Congress at the
last session made provision for six new
vessels, most of them of a heavier type
and more complete construction than
any yet built, and the naval authorities
are felicitating themselves upon the fact
that they have within three weeks after
adjournment been able to complete all
of the designs, issue proposals, and in
several cases award construction of these
vessels. In addition to this record of
quick designing,the construction bureau
was charged during the year with the
preparation of plans for five vessels as
authorized to be built by the preceding
The secretary of the navy received a
telegram today from the Union Iron
Works of San Francisco, accepting the
department's terms for the construction
of one battle ship. The contract price
is $3,180,000, or $60,000 more than the
Esteem for Justice Miller.
There was a meeting of the bar of the
supreme court of the United States to
day for the purpose of expressing the
esteem in which the late Justice Miller
was held by the attorneys who practiced
before the court. A committee was ap
pointed to prepare resolutions commem
orative of the services of Justice Miller,
and the meeting adjourned until Decem
ber 6th, when the resolutions will be re
ported. A very full attendance of
lawyers throughout the country is ex
pected to attend this meeting. The
court met at noon, but being without a
quorum immediately adjourned.

The Silver Product Increasing.
E. O. Leech, director of the mint, has
returned from, a visit to a number of
mines in the west. Speaking of his trip
he said: "As to the prospects of silver
mining and the current production of
our mines, I should say the silver pro
duct of the United States is increasing.
Certainly there is great activity in all
the mining camps which I have visited,
and when one considers that only a
short time ago they were getting only 90
cents an ounce for silver, and '&% cents
a pound for lead, while today silver is
worth $1.10 an ounce and 6 ceuts
pound for lead, it is not surpris
ing that there should be great activity
in mining industries, and the output
should be increased."
THE OHIO LEGISLATURE.
Governor Campbell Insulted by the
Speaker of tke House.
Columbus, Oct. 20.—The lower branch
of the legislature reconvened this after
noon, the senate having adjourned to
tomorrow. Governor Campbell sent a
message to the house, but the speaker
refused to recognize his private secretary
and an adjournment motion was rushed
through. Governor Campbell looks upon
this action as a personal insult. The
message suggested a non-partisan board
of improvement for Cincinnati, to be
appointed by the mayor, and an election
to be held in April. The message will
go to the senate tomorrow.

Jackson, Miss., Oct. 20. —The supple
mental report of the legislative commit
tee relating to state boundaries was
taken up for consideration this morning.
The second and last section thereof reads
as follows: "The legislature shall have
power to consent to the acquisition of
additional territory by this state, and to
make the same a part thereof; and the
legislature may consent to the creation
of another state or territory to be formed
in whole or part of a portion of this
state, whenever the consent of the con
gress of the United States shall be given
thereto; and the legislature may solve
disputed boundaries between this state
and its coterminous states whenever such
This is regarded by the delegates from
the black counties as an intimation that
the white counties may at some future
time make an attempt to secede from
the black counties, and leave them to
struggle alone with the race problem.
A Steamer Burned.
Port Huron, Mich., Oct. 20.—The
steamer Annie Young, of the Lake Su
perior Transit Company, took fire and
burned to the water's edge off Carington,
this morning. The steamer Ed Smith
went to the rescue, and took thirteen of
the crew off and brought them here.
The balance of the crew, eight men,
were drowned. The Young had a cargo
of coal and merchandise. She was 693
tons burden, and valued at $30,000. The
mate was badly burned.
The Two Jerry Dunns.
New York, Oct. 20.—Sporting circles
in this city were startled this morn

Jerry Dunn, in a small town near El
Paso, Texas. The shock was soon dis
sipated, however, when it became
known that Jerry Dunn was not the
Jerry Dunn the dispatch referred to.
The dead man is Jerry Dunn, of Boston,
who fell into decline and was sent south
by his friends. Jerry Dunn is still alive.
RECIPROCITY WANTED WITH THE
The Spanish Government Petitioned for
Speedy Action in the Matter of Estab
lishing Reciprocal Relations.
Washington. Oct. 20.—The state de
partment has received a copy of the
minutes of the debates which have
recently taken place in the chamber of
commerce at Havana with reference to
the McKinley bill and the question of
reciprocity. The statement which was
transmitted to the Spanish minister of
colonies was accompanied by a letter
from the president of the chamber,
which shows the existence of a strong
sentiment favorable to a reciprocal
treaty with the United States. The
statement was sent to the minister in
response to a message from him, asking
suggestions as to any modifications de
sired in the Cuban tariff. l The writer
says, in part :
"The new Cuban tariff proposed by
Spain must be preceded by the repeal of
the act of 1882, because that act creates
insuperable obstacles to the develop
ment of the foreign commerce of Cuba,
which is indispensable to the cultivation
of its products. It is the opinion of all
Cubans that the greatest market for Cu
ban goods is the nation whose ports lie at
its very door. The chamber of commerce
does not hesitate to affirm that the
United States is to be the regulator of
the economical market, just as England
is of the money market. The law
makers of the United States know per
fectly well that the people whom they
represent have an abundance of the
necessaries of life. They know that by
imposing heavy duties upon the manu
factured goods of Europe, they favor the
development of their own industries;
compel the well-to-do classes to pay in
direct taxes, and have no cause to fear
European reprisals, for such reprisals
would have to apply to cereals, meat,
petroleum, etc., which are the very ar
ticles those nations absolutely require.
The United States care but little for re
ciprocity with Europe, for it knows
that Europe has need of its products,
and will grant it or refuse it, as may suit
its own interests. It cares a great'deal,
however, for reciprocity with the na
tions of America."
Attention is called to the fact that
Brazil is preparing to secure the market
of the United >tates for its sugar. The
manner in which Brazil wrested from
Cuba the palm of being the chief coffee
producer is alluded to, and a warning is
sounded that the same thing may hap
pen with regard to sugar.
The letter closes with the expression
of the hope that the gravity of these
economical problems in the Antilles will
receive the attention they deserve, and
with the apprehension, well founded,
the writers think, that Cuban produc
tions, especially sugar, may be unable
to compete in the North American mar
ket with those of other sugar producing
The Cotton Belt Sold.
St. Louis, Oct. 20.—The Missouri and
Arkansas division of the St. Louis &
Texas railway, commonly known as the
"Cotton Belt," extending from Bird's
Point, Mo., opposite Cairo, 111., to Tex
arkana, Ark., was sold at auction today.
It was purchased by the reorganization

president of the former company, being
the bidder, for $6,000,000. The Texas

To how the trend of political matters
the Herald prints a few letters, one of
many giving the views of voters on the
candidates. These run as follows :
Why a Republican Will Vote for Pond.
Editors Herald—l have been, and
still am, a Republican. The fact of my
iMng so however should not pervert my
judgment nor prevent me from exercis
ing my rights as a citizen in voting at
the coming election in such a way as to
me seems best, for my own good, the
good of my fellow citizens, and the good
of the whole state.
I am in favor of a man at the head of
the affairs of this statewho has sufficient
knowledge of state affairs. I do not
think that the distinguished gentleman
nominated by my party has that full
knowledge of the history of this state
and its requirements to successfully fill
the office of govern6r of the state of
California; nor do I think he
has surrounded himself with ad
visors such as would not advise
him for the best interests of the state.
His lack of knowledge of the men and
more especially of the politicians of the
state must necessarily place him at a
disadvantage when he has to rely on the
judgment of others. His lack of knowl
edge of the affairs of this state, and his
evident want of self-reliance would, if
he should be elected, make dependence
upon the judgment aud advice of others,
absolutely necessary, and the character
of the persons who would be likely to be
his advisers is such as to lead to the con
clusion that in case of the election of
Colonel Markham, a defaulting secretary
of state, or some one of that ilk, would
be the de facto governor of the state.
This has been the trouble of the pres
ent executive of our state, and the
cause of the lamentable failure which
he has made as a governor. Therefore,
I shall vote for the nominee of the Dem
ocratic party. It is admitted that he is
an old resident of the state with large
interests in the state, that he has suc
cessfully filled offices of public trust in
this state, and that he is now the mayor
of San Francisco, and faithfully and suc
cessfully stands up for the interests of
its citizens. I am a Republican.
Will Not Support Bad Men.
Editors Herald: The various Re
publican papers of the city and county
previous to the convention, said: "We
must nominate only good men, with
clean records and correct habits, if we
hope to elect them, that we had better
elect good Democrats rather than bad
Republicans"—to which we all agreed.
Yet after all the precaution and ad
vice of cur best papers, the convention
nominated men for office of bad record
and worse habits.
Men who are utterly unworthy the
support of any good who holds
that in county politics that good men
are of more importance than mere party.
I hear many good and prominent Re
publicans openly declare they will not
support such men as Aguirre" or Kelly
for any office. Simply because the con
vention nominated them is no reason
we have to support them, and what is
more we are not going to, and if we have
anything to do with it, they will not
One half of the Republicans here said
they would not support Aguirre before
the Willett affair, but since it we would
not vote for him if he was"endorsed by
all the political parties in the county.
Farmer Frnmpton on Taxes.
Editors Herald—l take pleasure in
stating that the people of this district
and surrounding country are and have
been enjoying a season of general pros
perity, large crops and good prices for
everything so far. Wine grapes are
nearly all in. Quite a number of acres
have been dried. Generally they have
yielded better than was expected. I
regret to say, however, that the vine
disease is still here, and as far as I can
see, as bad as last year. Corn looks
well, and no doubt the crop will be
large. A large amount of the company's
land has been sold to actual settlers.
Politics is looming up now, an«l we
are wondering whether there is going to
be more economy when the new officers
get in. The last four years the people
have been cinched unmercifully. The
assessor and supervisors are the principal
ones to look after, as well as senators and
assemblymen. A determined fight has
been kept up by the Republicans of this
section against Mason, and they thought
they had beat him badly. Have they
done so ? When you consider that Mr.
Mason prefers Mr. Gray to anyone else,
and the fact that he was one of Mason's
deputies, does it not look as though the
wool was pulled down—away down—over
the eyes of the Republicans after all?
Should Gray be elected, the same policy
and the same deputies, in fact Mr. Gray
knows nothing else about assessing but
what Mr. Mason learned him. Let each
taxpayer look over his old tax receipts.
He will find that under Bilderrain and
the other Democratic county officers,
taxes on forty rcres of hndand improve
ments were only about half as much as
under Mason and the Republican outfit.
The tax levy has been made, and as
usual it is $1.80; no matter what the as
sessment of the county is. Our whole
souled supervisors must have $1.80 on
the $100. To reach that amount, 30
per cent, is added for road pur
poses. Two years ago Mr. Davis, after
defeating Judge Venable, he promised
great things, among others that we
should have good roads. The 30 per
cent, collected last year was blown in,
and what have we got to show for it.
The road between Artesia and Norwalk
is no better than it was ten years ago.
The sand is horrible this fall. If I had
the power I would compel Mr. Davis to
team on such a road and pay 30 per
cent., and- $2 poll tax besides. No, as
long as we have a lawyer for supervisor
we cannot expect much. I suppose he
might say the floods last winter
were so bad it took all for
bridges, but the fact remains that
if the river is not kept in its bed,
100 per cent will not pay for bridges. I
don't think there is a farmer here be
lieves the roads will be any better ne<t
fall than they are now, after this 30 per
cent, is blown in. We would like
Mr. Davis to make us a visit,
and tell us what we may ex
pect for our money.
A Meeting at Compton.
A Compton man perpetrates the fol
lowing on a Republican meeting held
I-ast night at the peaceable city of Compton
Republican speakers came down,
To tell us of Man ham,
The man from the no-liquor town.
Tlicy all had no use for the Herald,
And'how they did scorch M. C. Monday—
Then stopped they precisely at twelve,
So as not to infringe upon "Sunday."
They advised to have respect for the Sabbath,
Andttot to drink any thing strong,
Thatit was against their principle
And morally, awfully wrong.
They were heartily glad that old Compton
Had not a saloon in her midst,
And were sorry, and deeply regretted,
That the original package exists.
Then dispersing, the good honest people,
Moved off without further delay,
And these models of temperance doctrine,
To the package house wended their way.
They reveled far after the muftiight.
Till daylight forced them to abscond,
Then they parted with anxious expressions,
That Markham won't fall in the Pond.

£ How Gray Worked It.
Just prior to the Republican conven
tion a little country paper printed about
"steen" puffs of Captain F. Edward
Gray of Alhambra. Among them was
"There seems to be a custom that has
become a well established law, that no
so called "tenderfoot" shall be elected
to office. This, apparently, is one of the
secrets of Capt. Gray's enthusiastic re
ception as a candidate for assessor.
"His residence in the county for four
teen years is sufficient evidence that he
is here to stay. He has worked hard for
the county's interest during that time,
and deserves reward for his tenacity,
loyalty and well-doing."
This, of course, was aimed at Tom
Lewis. Some one has got the item and
has been passing it around among the
"tenderfeet," and "C : apt. F. Edward
Gray of Alhambra" will probably hear
from it two weeks from today. 1
Here is a specimen of how Republi
can rule heaps up expenses. In the
good old Democratic days the rounty
treasurer received his salary, and did all
the work. There the expenses of the
office began and ended. There was no
office rent, book-keeper nor other adden
da. Besides the salary of the treasurer
under Republican rule, the office costs
I $350 a month. That is why so many
Republicans will vote for Dr. Kurtz this

We are arranging two irrigation districts under the "Wright Irrigation Act," and
are selling land in one of these districts at $75 per acre, with a rebate of $15 per
acre for improvements, to be put on the land by the purchaser the first year. This
leaves the net price at $00 PER ACRE, payable, $10 per acre cash, the balance in
3 equal payments, due in 2, 3 and 4 years, at 8 per cent interest.
In the other district we sell the land for $100 per acre, with a rebate of $25 for
improvements put on the land by purchaser the first year, which leaves the net
