A GREAT DEMOCRATIC VICTORY.
Seldom in the history of the country
has there been a more remarkable
political upheaval than that which
shook the Union last Tuesday. The re
tarns are coming in with unprecedented
slowness, but enough is known to make
it certain that the country has declared
in emphatic tones against Republican-
ism gone to seed. It is difficult to tell
what a plant will be before that final
stage of development is reached, for the
most noxious thistle in its tender days
of growth may wear a really fascinating
blossom. The Republicanism of these
latter days has been bearing seed, and it
is of such a sort that the people do
not seem to care to go on with the cul
tivation of the crop to any further ex
tent. It is known by various names in
various places. It is Cannonism in Illi
nois, Quayism in Pennsylvania, Lodge
ism in Massachusetts, McKinleyism
or Forakerism in Ohio. On the demone
tisation of silver it is known as Sher
manism in the Buckeye state. But it is
like the divine William's rose with all
its qualities reversed—call it by what
name you will, the American people do
not seem to take at ail kindly to tbe
odor of the thing. As Reedisnf it may
go for the nonce in Maine, but the rest
of the people declare that that benighted
state shall not produce any more
of the pestiferous stuff to ehed its seeds
in their political gardens. Pennsylva
nia has been the natural habitat of
this thistle, and there it assumes forms
truly frightful. Mathew Stanley Quay
has been the boss gardener of that fertile
field, and here is what one of his assist
ants said a few days prior to the elec
"We will carry this election for Dela
mater at all hazards. If we can't carry
it on the outside we will do so on the
By "inside" this ardent citizen meant
fraud, false counting, repeating, bogus
registration, voting and the other meth
ods which have prevailed in Philadel
phia since Dave Martin and his ilk have
ran the Republican machine.
The canvass made by the Democratic
city committee reveals the methods by
which the "inside" work was to be done
if the Democrats and independents did
aot prevent it.
No less than 44,456 illegal names were
on the voting list, out of a total of 265,
--971. Startling figures these! Names of
the dead, of persons who have removed,
and of those who have not paid the poll
tax are there. Talk about corruption in
New York city! The metropolis cannot
hold a candle to the iniquities perpe
trated by the Republican ring on elec
tion days. The machinery of registra
tion is, of course, in Republican hands.
That is one of the fruits of rank Re
publicanism, a point on which the peo
ple have given their righteous verdict.
Delamater was not to be saved by any
means, outside or insidg.
The next house of representatives will
be Democratic by so large a majority
that Reed's czarism will be buried out
of sight so deep it will never sprout
again. There will be no more unseating
of properly elected members of ttie
house in order to give the Quay and
Cannon type of statesmen a "working"
majority. Mr. McKinley will stay at
home and have time to figure out how
much extra cost his own bill
puts on his boots and coat.
Fry-the-fat Foster will also remain an
ornament to rural retirement and not
try his hand at his old occupation.
All along the line the will of the hon
est citizen has been made operative
against the machine schemes of the
wiley politician, and the great common
wealths of the union have nearly all
swung into line, and stand shoulder to
shoulder to stamp out Quay's methods
in politics, McKinley's scheme of enrich
ing the manufacturing barons at the ex
pense of the people, Cannon's style of ele
gant debate and convincing logic, Lodge's
insolent attempt to interfere with the
inalienable rights of sovereign states,
*nd Reed's revolutionary attempts to
deprive the minority of its constitu
tional rights. He will be made to learn
that the house is a deliberative body,
and he will be given time to deliberate
in his own mind on the effect revolu
tionary attempts to subvert the institu
tions of the fathers have upon the
Fourteen years ago Blame left his
place as speaker and went down into the
arena of debate to prevent the pas
sage of just such a bill as
that of Cabot Lodge. Intoxi
cated by the success achieved in
carrying the last national election by
means of boodle, this measure is revived
at this late day, by a crank who sees
nothing in the whole nation but the
black blotch of the negro vote. Gentle
men of the Quay, Cannon, Reed and
Ingalls type, the curtain is rung' down
on your career. Actum est is the legend
the hand of the nation has written over
your political grave.
The death of Rev. Elias Birdsall has
called out a very general expression of
regret, particularly from old-time Los
Angeles people. Hiß great worth as a
man was best known to these, for the
reason that they knew him longer, and
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 6, 1890.
had seen him tried in hard days. How
ever, all the people knew him or knew
of him, and all who knew held him in
deservedly high "esteem.
A POLITICAL HARLOT.
In the case of our own state it must be
said that boodle is king. There has not
been a time in the history of California
when a sack of large dimensions and
plethoric distension would not flop her
like a flapjack in the hands of a first
class cook. Her political complexion is
as changeable as that of a chameleon, and
above all she never fails to respond to the
color of double eagles, or the silver sheen
af daddy dollars. We say this with no
lack of appreciation of the sterling
worth of the mass of the people. But
the proletariat of the slums of the
breezy Bay city is so numerous and fol
lows the ecent of coin in an election
with so much of the same eagerneßS as a
buzzard does the scent of carrion on the
plains under an August sun, that the
whole state may be swung from side to
side like a shuttlecock. It is a disgrace
of no ordinary nature that this should
be so. But there it is, and there is why
California goes Republican in this year
of grace. That is the alpha and omega
of Tuesday's election.
Whebe will the great land slide stop?
It started in New Hampshire, swept the
old Bay State, took in Little Rhody on
its march, held Connecticut down,
swept the Empire State, did not forget
the Jerseys, overwhelmed the Keystone
State, overlapped on to Maryland, Del
aware and the Virginias, embraced the
states to the gulf, spread over Ohio and
all the valleys of the great lakes and
Mississippi, crossed the plains of Ne
braska, and even climbed the rock
ribbed mountain heights of Colorado.
Republican rottenness lies everywhere,
from the Atlantic to the Rocky moun
tains, buried beneath the indignation of
the people. Only that irredeemably
rotten borough, Nevada, and coin-cor
rupted California escaped. But their
turn too will come. The intelligence
and honesty of the people will
do to bank on. All good men
will soon forget their party ties and
unite for the common good, the good of
their country, and rebuke the money
power in politics in California too. Then
boodle will no longer be king, despite the
slavish disposition of the Barbary coast
and Tar flat.
The secretary of the chamber of com
merce has done good work for the sec
tion in the preparation of a bulletin
show ing the profits of fruit and vegeta
ble growing in Southern California.
These are intended primarily for distri
bution at the Chicago exhibit, and a
number will be issued from time to time.
John James Ingalls has heard some
thing drop out there in Kansas. He
may not hereafter regard the purifica
tion of politics as such an iridescent
dream. Even the Stygian pool of Re
publicanism ia likely to be purified of
the bitterness of Ingalls's gallish tongue.
Mn. Blame said at Philadelphia last
Saturday that this was a crisis in the
career of his party. He also said the
defeat of the party at this time meant a
death blow to it. Mr Blame is a bright
man. He was no doubt right. Let us
bury the carcass.
Blame knew what he was talking
about at Philadelphia last week. He
knew the keystone of war taxes was
slipping for its place. It has slipped
and the whole iniquitous system is on
the ground, not to be set up again.

Your very title, ray dear madame,

ADVICE TO A YOUNG MAN.
Henry Ward Beecher's Instructions to
The following letter from Henry Ward
Beecher to his son is declared on good
authority never to have been published.
It is reminiscent of tbe worldly good
sense of the advice given to Laertea by
Polonius, but it is also permeated by the
leaven of christian experience. The
precepts in it are those which, if fol
lowed, would produce a good man as
well as a gentleman.
Brooklyn, N. V., Oct. 18, 1878.—My
Dear Herbert: You are now for the first
time really launched into life for your
self. You go from your father's house
and from all family connection, to make
your own way in the world. It is a good
time to make a new start, to cast out
faults of whose evil you have had an ex
perience, and to take on habits the want
of which you have found so damaging.
1. You must not go into debt. Avoid
debt aa you would the devil. Make it a
fundamental rule: No debt—cash or
2. Make few promises. Religiously
observe even the smallest promise. A
man who means to keep his promises
can not afford to make many.
3. Be scrupulously careful in all state
menta. Accuracy and perfect frank
ness, no guesswork. Either nothing or
4. When working for others sink
yourself out of sight, seek their inter
est. Make yourself necessary to those
who employ you, by industry, fidelity
and scrupulous integrity. Selfishness
5. Hold yourself responsible to a high
er standard than anybody else expects
of you. Demand more of yourself than
anybody else expects of you. Keep
your personal standard high. Never
excuse yourself to yourself. Be a hard
master to yourself, but lenient to every
t>. Concent rate your force on your own
proper business; do not turn off. Be
constant, steadfast, persevering.
7. The art of making one's fortune is
to spend nothing; in this country any
intelligent and industrious young man
may become rich if he stops all leaks
and is not in a hurry. Do not make
haste; be patient.
8. Do not speculate or gamble. You
go to a land where everybody is excited
and strive to make money suddenly,
largely and without working for it. They
blow soap bubbles. Steady, patient in
dustry is both the surest and the safest
way. Greediness and haste are two
devils that destroy thousands every year.
!). In regard to Mr. B , he is a
southern gentleman; he is receiving you
as a favor to me ; do not let him regret
10. I beseech you to correct one fault—
severe speech of others; never speak evil
ot any man, no matter what the facts
may be. Hasty fault-finding and severe
apeech of absent people is not honorable,
is apt to be unjust and cruel, makes ene
mies to yourself and is wicked.
11. You must remember that you go to
Mr. B not to learn to manage a farm
like his. One or two hundred acres, not
40,000, is to be your future homestead;
but you can learn the care of cattle,
sheep, the culture of wheat, the climate,
the country, manners and customs, and
a hundred things that will be needful.
12. If by integrity, industry and well
earned success you deserve well of your
fellow citizens, they may, in years to
come, ask you to accept honors. Do not
seek them, do not receive them while
you are young—wait, but when you are
| established you may make your father's
I name known with honor in halls of leg-
I islation. Lastly, do not forget your

Read often the Proverbs, the precepts

The Bones of Mirabeau.
A couple of years ago there was a great
quest for the bones of Mozart. Now it
is for the bones of Mirabeau. The play
ground of a boys' school near the Boule
| yard Saint Marcel lias been torn up, and
an amazing number of bones and skele
tons have certainly been discovered, but
no one can say which of them are there
mains of the great hero of the Revolu
tion. The skeleton, wherever it is, ha?
i had strange experiences. Mirabeau died
in 1791, and on the 4th of April his body
was conveyed with extraordinary pomp
to the Pantheon. His was the first in
terment in the great temple that was to
i hold the ashes of the noblest Frenchmen.
A couple of years afterward papers
were discovered that proved the people's
idol had received considerable sums of
money from Louis XVI. So it was de
cided to cancel the public burial, and, in
fact, to remove the bones. This was in
effect done, but they should be buried
somewhere. The leaden coffin was car
ried off to the cemetery of Saint Marcel,
a grave yard used for the interment of
criminals. And now when the bones
are wanted they cannot be identified.
No leaden coffin can be discovered, and
the authorities are uncertain whether to
select a skeleton and do it vicarial hom
age or let matters revert to their old
condition.—Pall Mall Gazette.

A New Feature in Savings Bank
The Security Savings Bank & Trust Co.
At 148 South Main street, has for the past six
months been receiving Children's Deposits in
sums as low as 25 cents and issuing to each de

As nn aid to this department of our Savings
Hank and for the purpose of encouraging Small
Savings by all persons both old arid young, we
have decided to introduce what is known as the
