TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1890.
San jFRANCisco has sent $2,500,000 to
Wall street to tide over the financial
straits there. Money will be dear here
for a while. Give us a free coinage bill
and let us ha ,-c an end of this money
Uncle Jerry Rusk had better write a
new report to fit the present price of sil
ver. Under the beneficent manipulation
of the Republican party, of whcee care
for the white metal we hear so much, it
is down to an even dollar again.
The War-tax Chronicle has the gall to
ask the people to wait until 1892 to real
ize the fact that the McKinley bill has
reduced the amount of customs by at
least 25 per cent, and thus have accom
plished the object of the Mills tariff bill.
It says nothing, however, about the fact
that the McKinley-bill will in the mean-
time compel consumers to pay 25 per
cent more .for a wide line of every day
articles' ot! common use or consumption.
Prices on all kinds of woolen wear have
gone up from 10 to 30 per cent since the
passage of the McKinley abomination.
Auri sacra fames, cursed greed of gold,
sung Virgil a couple of millennia ago.
But it has been supposed that this thirst
was keenest in the case of those who
had least of' the root of all evil. And
that recalls the answer of the little boy
st Sunday school whom the minister
asked what there was about money that
made it the root of all evil. The want of
it, replied the little fellow, who spoke
feelingly,. no doubt. But it seems hard
to find the man who is above this con
suming thirst. We generally think
that the' j possession of great wealth
leads to a conservative course, with the
first notion to save what one has. The
case of the Baring Bros, of London, who
came ho near being swamped the other
day, dispels l these views. A premium
Oi 100 per cent, on gold in Buenos Ayres
led them to make such ventures with
their many millions that they nearly lost
their all. Poor and content is rich
enough, indeed, as compared with such
rich greed for more as this.
The people of this city will be calied
upon today to vote upon the question of
closing the saloons on Sunday. The
polls will be open from sunrise to sunset,
and the ballots will merely contain the
expressions: "For the closing of
saloons," or "Against the closing of
saloons." The committee that has
managed the contention in favor of Sun
day closing claims that the petition pre
sented to the council on that behalf con
tained the names of more than one-half
of the voters of the city, as determined
by the count at the late election. If
that is the case, then the election today
can go only one way. We shall see by
the returns tonight whether the majority
of our people vote as they petition.
There are many who would favor the
closing of saloons on Sundays if they did
not feel that such an ordinance would
only be the entering wedge to other
measures infringing upon personal lib
erty which the extremists stand ready
to urge just as soon as they have gained
their point in this matter. They are
familiar with the French aphorism:
"Cc nest que le premier pas quicoute."
It is now a good time to make sug
gestions to our legislators-elect. There
is much business for them to do, of a
character that will be of great benefit to
their constituents, if they will intelli
gently present it to the legisla
ture and procure its enactment
into laws. Every property owner
in Los Angeles would he directly
benefited and relieved by a measure
similar to the one which controls the
taxation for street improvements in
Denver. There the city is authorized to
issue interest-bearing bonds to pay for
street work. When a new street is to
be graded or improved, the work is paid
for out of. the sale of these bonds, and
the indebtedness attaches as a lien upon
the adjacent property, to be liquidated
in installments each year until the prin
cipal and interest are paid. The bonds
are backed by the credit of the city, and
can be made to run for ten or twenty
years, so that the property own
ers are given a slow and easy
• process of meeting the cost of their
street improvements. A measure of
this kind would be of inestimable ad
vantage to the poor homestead owner.
The present mode of instantane
ous lien and lump payment; is
in many cases a freeze-out pro
ceeding, and often serves as a measure
of confiscation. How many poor people
in Los Angeles have been compelled to
let their homes go because they could
not meet their street assessments?
If they had had ten or twenty
years in which to pay those
assessments, on the intallment plan,
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD; TUESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 18, 1890.
they could have done so without
suffering any material distress. We
understand that General Mathews is
formulating a measure of this kind, and
will make it his special business to urge
it in the coming legislature.
WHITHER ARE WE DRIFTING?
A few days ago the people of Eos An
geles were treated to the extraordinary
spectacle of a superior judge permitting
a man on trial for felony to harangue
the court in a stump speech, in which
he attacked in the most insolent manner
and with the vituperation of the slums
the press of this city. The "honorable"
court not only failed to check him in his
filthy diatribe, but seemed to consider
that he was sitting there to give the
widest latitude to the thrice-indicted
forger to make irrelevant and filthy as
saults upon respectable people who
never made mistakes in signing their
names to negotiable paper.
Yesterday these same people were
treated to another extraordinary judi
cial exhibition in the trial of Edelman
upon one of the several indictments
found against him for robbing the county
treasury by making out false jury lists.
After having formerly quashed several
bills of indictment against the ex-deputy
Republican county clerk upon the flimsy
demurrer of his counsel that no crime
could haye been committed because
a few common and usual abbreviations
had been made in filling out the war
rants, he yesterday granted the motion of
the prisoner's counsel at the conclusion
of the trial to instruct the jury to ac
quit. It would seem that the prosecu
tion had made out a strong case, for the
twelve "good men and true" refused to
be governed by the instructions of the
court, but retired to deliberate upon
their verdict. At this writing the jury
are out for the night, and the result of
their deliberations will only be known
today. It was rumored they stood at
7 :30 last evening, eight for conviction ;
two against, and two who were in a state
We have here a sample of the partial
ity which some of our Republican judges
seem to have for Republicans who are
charged with crimes the most dangerous
to society. It has been clearly shown
in the Edelman indictments that the
treasury has been robbed, and the
crime has, beyond the peradventure of a
doubt, been brought to the very door of
the accused ex-official. Yet every rlimpy
quibble and technicality which the
counsel for the prisoner could trump up
has been decided in his favor.
The question presents iteelf, are courts
established here for the purpose of
shielding criminals and encouraging
dishonest officials in robbing the tax
payers? It would seem as if the people
are not entitled to protection from the
courts of Los Angeles when a Republi
can is in peril; but that every point is
strained by them to save the derelicts
from punishment. Substantial justice
is not in their category of duty, but they
wrest the law not to do a little right
but to do a great wrong.
A plain statement of the pointß proven
in the case in which the judge instructed
the jury yesterday to render a verdict of
acquittal,will enable the people to appre
ciate the difficulty of obtaining a convic
tion in these cases. The prosecution
proved that Edelman was the clerk of
the court; that he presented to the su
pervisors a list of the jurors with the
fees to which they were entitled;
that on that list was the name of
Bliss as entitled to $54 of jury
fees; that the supervisors certified the
list to the auditor to draw the warrants ;
that the Bliss warrant was made out by
the auditor and handed to Edelman by
his deputy; that the warrant was pre
sented to the treasurer by "first cousin"
Cohn, who endorsed the name of Bliss
upon it; that, the money was paid ; and,
finally, the towering fact that Bliss had
not served as a juror at all; had not
earned the fees set forth in the warrant,
and had never seen the warrant nor re
ceived a cent of the $54.
That would appear to be a consecu
tive and complete case; and yet the
Republican judge instructs the jury to
acquit the Republican ex-official, which
they very properly refused to do.
With these astounding facts before
them, we would ask the people what are
they going to do about it? Why, of
course, like good, law-abiding citizens,
they will walk up to the tax-captain's
office next month and good-naturedly
each pay his proportion of the money
thus stolen from the county. There
ought to be an end of this kind of work.
Jim the Penman was a slow and utterly
unenterprising person in the pursuit of
his lucrative if queer profession, as com
pared with our own Hon. Jim, the ex
assemblyman. His exploits in the way
of getting other people's names attached
to his paper and raising the wind there
on, were something phenomenal. They
turn up at every street corner, and con
tain the names of persons enough to
elect the Hon. Jim to any office in the
gift of the Republican party of great and
moral ideas. And this is the sort of fel
low whom a judge on tlie bench joins
with in his inane vituperation of a press
that was most merciful to him! Verily
partisan politics have led us to a
pretty pass when such rascals can go un
whipped of justice through the culpable
weakness of the prosecuting attorney,
the interest of the bench and the weak
ness of juries. It looks as if in some
cases the victims were inveigled into
compounding a felony. The grand jury
ought to take up this Dunlap matter and
see if a felony had been compounded.
But the grand jury seems to be under
the spell too. Why has not an indict
ment been found on the Hervey Lindley
note? But why pursue the disgust
ing and discouraging subject fur
ther? Suppose an indictment had been
found, a trial had, and a conviction
reached, would not some subservient
court, with more regard to politics than
justice, have ordered a verdict for the
distinguished penman ?
A coMMumcATioN from Mr. C. White
Mortimer will be found in our local col- 1
umns today.... In this Mr. Mortimer at
tempts to defend himself from the force
of statements made in these columns yes
terday. The attempt of course is futile.
Every intelligent person in the section,
who paid any attention to the matter,
knew full well that the Rose orange trees
were badly infected with red scale at all
times later than the summer of 1880, and
the white scale was there earlier than
1885. If Mr. Mortimer has loaned
money on mortgages in Antelope valley
on the basis of a valuation of flO an
acre —on which of course he receives a
fat commission —whereas he refused to
encourage a purchase of the Gay &
Elliott lands at $1 per acre, itonly shows
how easily some people change their
views under the proper influences.
