THE LATEST PHASE OF POOR LO.
An immense amount of sympathy has
been wasted upon the aboriginal tribes
of the United States. They have been
idealized and poetized about until the
brains of most people have been con
fused as to their real characteristics.
The work begun by Cooper in his types
of the old Chief Tammany and Uncas
and his father —a work almost entirely
of the imagination, and with scarcely a
thread of fact to rest upon —was con
tinued by writers in prose and poetry,
who went into maudlin ecstacies over
such Indian heroes and orators as
Tecumeeh and Logan. There had been
a lull to these fervid fancies respecting
the Indian until Mrs. Helen Jackson
took up the theme in Ramona, and gave
us, in the person of Alessandro, a sort of
companion picture to Cooper's Uncas,
differing in color and treatment, but
with the same filigree claim to reality.
Just now the settlers in tiie neighbor
hood of the Rosebud and Pine Ridge
agencies are in deadly fear of mutilation
and death, and death in the most horrid
forms. There does not in this case, as
has often happened in the past, seem to
have been any allegation of recent in
justice on the part of the whites. There
is a report that one of the new Indian
agents is inexperienced, but that is in
the natural order of things. One Indian
agent must often be replaced by another.
These officials, are liable to death or re
moval, although the instances in which
they ever resign are few indeed. The
hostilities, if any shall be reported, will
undoubtedly have emanated from the
aborigines, and without provocation.
It is pleasant to note that in the cur
rent trouble the military authorities
have acted with decision and dispatch.
According to the statement of General
Miles, as given to the reporters of the
Chicago press, in the three or four hun
dred square miles embracing the scene
of the threatened difficulties, there are
about six thousand Indians and an equal
number of United States troops. This
is a reassuring presentation of the mat
ter. The proportion of cavalry in the
government forces seems hardly large
enough, as there are said to be only
three hundred mounted men. But there
are thousands of hardy settlers, who will
gather around the troops, and who will
ride their own horses, and eke out the
government supply of those useful ani
mals. In such collisions as the present
the army officers are at a great disad
vantage. Behind them is a maudlin
public sentiment which forbids them to
strike until they have been struck, and
they thus lose the great force of the
first blow. They must hold their swords
in scabbard until the savages have
swooped down upon some unfortunate
settlement and wiped it off the face of
the earth. The dilettanti humanitarian
of the eastern states looks with perfect
equanimity on the massacre of white
men, women and children, but the mo
ment the hair or hide of an Indian is
harmed his grief becomes something
pitiable to see. Of the issue of the con
flict, if it is precipitated, there need be
no reasonable doubt. There will be no
more Custer massacres. Gen. Brooke,
who commands the department of the
Platte, has the reputation of being a gal
lant and meritorious officer. The sacri
fice of two Buch heroes as Custer and
Canby was enough to devote to placat
ing the eastern sentiment.
Those who are disposed to look upon
the romantic side of the Indian char
acter will find themselves slightly em
barrassed by the narries of the principal
chiefs who are spoken of in connection
with the late disturbances. "Sitting
Bull" is supposed to be the prime mover
in the troubles. One of his principal
lieutenants is "White Gut." "Young
Man Afraid of His Horses" still another.
"Steps the Cripple" seems to have his
oar in the stream of narrative which
reaches us from the eeat of war.
■"Hump Rod" seems to be happy at the
head of three hundred braves of the
"Two Kettle" band. Altogether they
are a lovely set, and their names cor
respond very charmingly with their acts.
The difficulty in the present emeute is
entirely different from any reported from
any field of Indian strife in the past.
The warlike Sioux and his fierce com
patriots have gotten a notion in their
heads that a Messiah has arisen, who is
to exterminate the whites, restore the
Indians to Aheir old ascendancy, and
people the regenerated country with
countless herds of buffaloes. This is a
very seductive picture, and it is well cal
culated to make the aborigine don his
war paint and start up the ghost dance.
The idea, however, is altogether too sub
tle and refined for an Indian brain, and
the suggestion has been made that in all
probability it owes its inception to some
scheming Mormon. Long and close con
nection with the Indians has given the
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD; SATUEDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 22, 1850.
Mormons ample facilities for exciting
their inflammable and simple natures.
Some of the savages are said to have
been concerned in the celebrated Indian
massacres in Minnesota, away back in
18G2. Many others were with the party
that massacred Custer and his com
panions. Tne atrocities perpetrated in
Minnesota recall the worst horrors of
the Wyoming and Ohio valleys. The
tomahawk and the torch did their fell
work in all directions. Whole villages
were swept away. The men and chil
dren were murdered and the women and
girls were dragged off to a fate worse
than death. We have had some pretty
atrocious massacres in Arizona and New
Mexico, but nothing to be mentioned in
the same week with these Minnesota
deviltries. Those who are not tainted
with eastern humanitarianism think
that it would be far better to sweep
every Sioux, Arapahoe orOgallalaoff the
globe than to be compelled to witness
again the horrors of such a massacre.
It is not pleasant to know that, as the
savages crowd to their deadly muster,
they are seen to be supplied with arms
of precision, furnished them by degener
A WORD TO THE WISE.
The Democratic municipal convention
! today has but one thing to do to secure
j a triumph. It must place upon its
| ticket men whose integrity is unques
j tioned, and whose fitness for the posi
tions for which they arc named js incon
trovertible. Beyond this, they ought to
be well-known citizens who enjoy
not only the respect but the
good-wili of the community. Such
men will bring individual strength
to the ticket, and will draw votes irom
the opposition on their personal ac
count. We are aware that it is not al
ways possible to find the exact man you
want, and when you have found him the
next difficulty is to get him to accept
the nomination. But if the qualifica
tions we have marked out are kept in
view In each case and as closely insisted
i upon as possible, the convention will
: present the public a ticket that we be
| lieve will win.
j It is idle to talk about a third party
) ticket carrying this election. All it can
| possibly do is to get a small fractional
vote of the people. But that fractional
J vote may prove decisive to such of its
| candidates as are taken up by either of
j the old parties; and this is a point
which the Democraticconvention should
i not lose sight of.
On the division of political lines in
this city the Democratic party is un
questionably in the minority. But the
conditions of this election are very dif
ferent from those of any ordinary elec
tion. The people are confronted with
the fact that for the past year the gov
ernment of Los Angeles has been com
pletely in the hands oi the Republican
party. Every official, from mayor down
to the humblest officer (with a solitary
exception in the board oi education),
is a Republican. That party is re
sponsible for the men it places in
power. This responsibility it cannot es
cape, and ii it has given us the very
woist administration Los Angeles has
ever had, and everybody admits it has,
then the people are not disposed to again
trust that party to select their officials
for them. This being the case, all, ex
cepting the most hide-bound partisans,
will vote for the Democratic ticket if
the convention does its full duty.
We therefore conclude that the labors
of today's convention will be endorsed
by the people. That is, the people
stand ready to endorse them if they
come up to the mark which the hour
demands. They know that the Demo
cratic party during its many years of
dominance in the municipal affairs of
this city always gave it an honest, effi
cient and economical government. They
know, too, that the Republican party
has given us the very reverse, and they
will not trust it again, especially on the
heels -jf such an experience as they have
had for the past year.
Taking*these facts and conclusions
into consideration, the convention which
meets today cannot exercise too much
discrimination, sagacity and prudence in
making up the Democratic ticket. That
body has the game in its own hands ; it
only has to play it with skill to secure a
CAN PARNELL BREAST THE STORM?
That the O'Shea developments pre
sent a grave crisis in the career of
Charles Stewart Parnell cannot be ques
tioned. The Irish people, with their
usual warm-hearted loyalty, stand by
him. His colleagues, in the greatmove
ment for Home Rule for Ireland, ex
tend to him affectionate fealty. Some
of them allude to King David. They
omit to note the fact, however, that
David was severely punished for his sin,
and that the profoundest notes of hu
man grief, shame and penitence are
echoed in his psalms. Long had David
to cry out of the depths to the Lord be
fore peace rested on his soui.
There is no need to go back to the old
days of Israel to find parallels to Par
nell, and innumerable instances could
be collected in recent English history of
men who had sinned against the laws
of God and conventionality far more
greviously than the Irish leader, and
who suffered scarcely at all in public es
timation. The statesmen of the days of
Walpole, of the elder and the younger
Pitt, of the Regency and of the time of
George IV., would scarcely have given a
serious thought to any eclaiicissement
like that which has so seriously embar
rassed Parnell. There would have been
a duel and a laugh, and that would
have ended the matter.
Has the world grown more moral ?
We think it has.
What, then, is the cause of the change ?
The nations of Europe professed the
Christian religion as fully one hundred
years ago as now, and their denomina
tional relations have undergone very
In all probability the long reign of
Victoria has been in great measure
responsible for this. When all has been
said about Victoria, about her penuri
ousness and selfishness, and her inordi
nate absorption in her family relations,
she has set the standard of morality for
her people. No avowed roue coufd ever
obtain access to herdrawing rooms. She
has given the tone to society. She be
gan this most gracious reform when she
was a young and charming girl sit
ting on the throne of Britain, she
continued it as a conscientious and noble
mother, and the most powerful impetus
was given to the changed code of public
morals when she was the idol of her
people. This most potent agent in the
public morals of Great Britain has now
been in operation fifty-three years.
It is sad that the great Irish leader
should now find himself confronted
by this strong public sentiment, of
comparatively recent creation, but
he does so find himself. It would
probably be hard to gauge the
depths of tne mortification from which
he suffers. What would have ex
cited a smile in the case of Charles
James Fox or Richard Brinsley Sheri
dan, brings a frown when it comes to
Charles Stewart Parnell.
Can Parnell survive the ordeal? He
starts out with the great advantage of
the condonation and co-operation of his
colleagues in the cause of Home Rule for
his suffering country. If he shall be able
to breast the current which will surely
run against him for a time he will show
that he possesses a force of character and
a masterful faculty that belong only to
the truly great. Should he prove un
equal to the trial, the Irish Nationalists
will find in Mr. Healy or Mr. Dillon
leaders equal to any emergency.
The intimation, which we receive by
telegraph, that the Vanderbilts, Gould,
the Rockefellers, and other great money
magnates, have gone into a big nool to
buy up all the great transcontinental
railways, to combine them and to put up
rates, should be received with some
grains of allowance. They are said to
have already secured the Union Pacific,
Northern Pacific, Southern Pacific,
Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe, and all
the other roads, except the Pennsylvania
Central and Delaware and Lackawanna.
We think we risk nothing in saying that
this is a great transcontinental, inter
continental and international flam. It
is too diaphanous for the ordinary ob
Miss Clara Morris to be Here Next
It has been a long time since Loa
Angeles theater-goers have had an op
portunity of witnessing as famous an
actress as Clara Morris. Even when she
was undergoing the illness that would
have kept the majority of actresses from
appearing at all, she gave a good per
formance. With entirely recovered
health it is readily seen that her ensu
ing visit will see her give a more power
ful portrayal than ever before. As the
box office is the surest indication of
public approval, the phenomenal re
ceipts that have greeted Miss Morris
wherever she has appeared on the coast,
and the number of theatre parties that
have been made up for her coming en
gagement here, Miss Morris is sure to
meet a reception here proportionate to
the position she holds as the greatest
exponent of the emotional stage.
Herrmann's Transatlintiques will
open at the grand next Monday. The

A pouring rain at 8 o'clock last night,
continuing long enough to spoil people's
tempers, was all that prevented an
overflowing house at the National's
opening night to see Herrmann's Trans
atluntiques. As it was there was a
great crowd, which in the upper tiers
reached the standing limit. It is a

and closing with George Holloway in
his remarkable balancing act on a
perpendicular ladder, there is not a
number on the programme which is dull
or uninteresting. Of the ten numbers
seven are billed as making their "Amer
ican debuts," and there is a novelty
about the entire performance that is re
freshing. In music, dancing, acrobat
ics, balancing, tumbling, eccentricities

specialities is represented as it is not by
any other company before the public.
