AN ISSUE THAT CANNOT BE EVADED.
The insistence with which it is sought
to force the silver issue into our politics
ia in truth a demonstration of the great
enlightenment of the masses. The at
tempt, at least partially successful, to
reduce $3,800,000,000 of the world's cir
culation to bullion, to be bought as bo
much copper or tin, is a menace to the
prosperity of the whole world. Its
effect, if entirely successful, would be
to reduce the coin circulation of the
world by a little more than one half.
The inevitable consequence of such a
reduction, by the substitution of the
single gold standard for gold and silver,
would be not only to reduce the value
ot commodities of all kinds, mc luding
real estate, but to add thia mass of silver
as one of the commodities to be
measured by the single standard of gold.
"We should thus be confronted not only
by the actual reduction of values, but
by that corollary constriction of the
money market that would make the Bale
of anything difficult, if not impossible,
gave on the basis of sacrifice.
This process of education of which we
have spoken has gone on with special
energy in the states of the west and
south. The war against silver began in
earnest after the Franco-Prussian
struggle. Germany found herself, on
the close of that great contest, in the
possession of one thousand million dol
lars in gold coin, tbe amount of the in
demnity exacted from France by Bis
marck. It was, of course, ouly natural
that the possession of such a large sum
of gold coin should impress the Germane
with the idea that then, if ever, was the
time to establish a mono-metallic sys
tem of circulation. Bismarck supposed
that he had drained France of her last
five-franc piece, and that his country
would benefit greatly by the substitu
tion of gold coin for the old German fis
No such result followed. France paid
over this prodigious sum and continued
the double standard of gold and silver.
At the end of ten years France seemed
to have more gold coin than at any pre
vious time in her history. She not only
did not miss the enormous sum she had
paid over to Germany, but the plethora
of money in the French capital seemed
greater than ever.
The adoption of the gold standard by
Germany had one disastrous effect,
however. It inspired the plutocrats in
London with the unholy ambition of
making the new movement universal.
There has of late years been a very inti
mate connection between 'Change, in
London, and Wall street, in New York.
Through an understanding between the
people of fixed incomes—the coupon
cutters —of both London and New
York—a movement was inaugurated
which resulted in the passage, by con
gress, in 1873, of a bill which demone
tized silver, although, as a historical
fact, silver was at that time at a slight
premium. It is a notorious matter,
established by the declarations of Sen
ator John P. Jones and other senators of
the United States, that the clause in the
bill demonetizing* silver was a surrepti
tious on<>, and that if its presence had
been suspected the bill would never
The object of England in procuring
the demonetization of eilver in the
United States i 3 very simple. It has
been the darling ambition of England,
for more than a quarter of a century, to
raise in India the cotton and wheat she
has been compelled to take from thia
country. All her transactions with In
dia are on a silver basis. She takes the
ailver bullion she buys at the lowest dis
count to which she cm force it, and
coins it into rupees, which she pays out
at par, for both these staples. With
silver at 87 cents an ounce, she makes
an enormous profit. With the white
metal at 50 cents an ounce, she would
make still greater. The circulating me
dium of the Indian empire is silver.
The East Indian ryot who grows the
cotton, rice and wheat which compete
with the American staples, is paid in
the eilver which we sell to England at
such ridiculously low figures.
The western farmer has at last begun
to note that, precisely as silver has sunk
in the daily quotations of silver bullion,
haa lessened the price which he has re
ceived for his corn and wheat. It ia an
insidious process that required time to
make itself patent to the producer. He
sees it at laßt, and is wroth accordingly.
He haa no patience with a policy which
has for its dual object the Belling out of
the material interests of the United
States to England, and the making of
the rich richer and the poor poorer on
both sideß of the Atlantic. The south
ern planter was longer in perceiving the
effects of this unpatriotic and treacher
ous policy, but he sees it now, and the
result will be that two of the most
powerful elements of our population
will never rest until this great wrong
has been righted.
That the issue will be forced into the
Democratic national convention let no
one doubt. It is too vital to be neg
lected. The national platform cannot
afford to ignore it. The votes of the
states of Nevada, Colorado, Montana,
Idaho, and possibly, according to Con
gressman Bland, of five or six southern
states, will hinge upon the attitude of
tbe respective parties on this great
issue. Mr. Harrison ia damned and
doubly damned with the silver men. All
that the Democratic party has to do to get
the vote of at least five or six doubtful
states is a sagacious silver plank and
the nomination of a man for president
who haa not antagonized silver. In
order to formulate such a plank all it
haa to do ia to fall back upon the tradi
tions of the party and to renew its pro
fessions of devotion to the gold and
silver money of the constitution. Such
a course involves no eacrifice and is the
demand of the hour.
ANNEXATION OF HAWAII.
The United States may be called upon
at any time to seriously consider the
proposition to annex the Hawaiian
islands. It is doubtful whether the
reigning queen will have a successor,
for it is very questionable whether the
American, German and French element
of the islands wouldbe willing to con
tinue the farce of royalty under a young
woman who had been purposely edu
cated in England ao aa to bring to the
Hawaiian throne prejudices that would
favor Englishmen and English interests
at the expense of all other foreign in
terests. Certainly the Americana in
the islands would be strongly oppoeed
to placing at the head of the govern
ment a young woman who would be
under the sway of her British father,
and we doubt whether it would be pos
sible for any person to reign in the
islands in opposition to the wishes of
the American element.
But, in the very nature of things, the
Hawaiian monarchy has run ita course.
The nativea have become so reduced in
numbers that they have lost their
prestige in public affairs. Besides, the
country is now too poor to maintain an
expensive government and must get rid
of royalty and become a simple repub
lic. But how it can become a republic
that could maintain itself with any
degree of power or dignity, it ia difficult
to see. The fact ia Hawaii must come
under the protection of some powerful
foreign government or relapse into bar
barism. She cannot take care of her
self. In the course of an interview in
Chicago with Hon. Henry Waterhouse,
one of the oldest American merchants
in Honolulu, that gentleman put the
situation in the islands in a very clear
light. He aaid that the annexation of
the islands to the United States was in
evitable, and continued:
"If a miracle should, however, lead
the United Statea to decline ita oppor
tunity the islands will become the prop
erty of some one else. It is impossible
for them to continue forever aa an inde
pendent nation. The reaaona for thia
have been frequently told. I can only
add that, after forty yeara spent in
Honolulu, I know that these reasons are
well grounded. The natives want a re
public. The queen, however, will hold
the throne until death removes her
from it. The nativea have no possible
chance of eatablisbing a republic nor of
preventing annexation when the proper
time comes. Their number ia steadily
diminishing, and, even now, there are
at most but 40,000 of tbem.
"The vast body of the American resi
dents are anxious for annexation, no
matter what ita opponents may say.
The United States is nearer to us than
any other country, and her intereeta in
the islands are greater than those of any
other country; but if she refuses ua
merely because annexation would neces
sitate expenditures for fortifications,
when, in reality, thoee fortifications in
the Pacific are just what she needs, we
must look to England, France or Ger
That is the situation in the islands in
a few worda. Either the United States
must annex them or they will go to one
of the European powers. But we can
not permit this. In justice to the
Americans in the islands and to the
American missionaries who brought the
natives out of heathenism and estab
lished civilization in their midst, we
could not allow the fruits of ao much
American labor and sacrifice to be
gleaned by any European power.
But over and beyond mere mercantile
or sentimental considerations there is
one that appeals directly and with ir
resistible force to Americans to make
these islands an outpost of the United
Statea. In a military point of view they
are indispensable to us as a naval sta
tion, and as a sort of half-way house be
tween the United States and China and
the Australasian colonies, they are of
incalculable value; and if, by our own
indifference or failure to appreciate the
true value of these islands to our com
merce and to our prestige in the Pacific
we should permit any other nation to
secure control of them, we would make
a most grave and fatal mistake. Think
of the value the islands would be to us
if at some future time China, when she
has become a great naval power, should
attempt to measure strength with us!
Our evening contemporary is indig
nant that any attempt should be made
to reduce the postoffice appropriation,
and denounces the retrenching congress
men as a cheese-paring lot of iellows.
The fact is a great many postofhees have
failed to keep their business up to their
old rate because tons and tons of news
paper matter that formerly went through
the mails is now sent by express. The
returns of the posloffices that have
shown a falling off in business have jus
tified corgress in taking steps to corres
pondingly lower the expenses of tbe de
Sometime ago the Terminal railroad
paid $120,000 for terminal privileges on
Rattlesnake island. Tbe other day that
company paid $300,000 for the whole of
the island and adjoining flats, involving
in all nearly three thousand acres. This
looks like business.
The president yesterday signed the
Chinese exclusion bill. It was not what
the people of California wanted. That
was embodied in the Geary bill. This
laat measure, however, was by no means
without its effect. It compelled tbe
conservative senate to insert a provision

compelling all Chinamen in the United
Statea to take out certificates. Thia pro
vision seems to have attracted the special
wrath of Congressman Hitt. He aaya
that it ia the firat time in the history of
civilized nations that it, haa been found
necessary to tag men like doga. This
sapient individual seems to have forgot
ten that nearly all civilized nations have
had until lately a very rigid system of
passports in which a very exact personal
description of the bearer formed a part.
Thia certificate feature of the new bill ia
the only gain over its predecessor, and
we may thank Congressman Geary for
forcing the concession.
The San Francisco Evening Poat aaya
that there is no doubt that a company
has been organized to revive the Alta
California in that city. Colonel H. H.
Boyce is announced aa the managing
editor. On account of legal complica
tions that might arise, the name of [the
pioneer newspaper will not be adopted
as an entirety, but it will be called the
San Francisco Alta. We doubt whether
the parties interested in this journalis
tic venture will gain anything by mak
ing it a rejuvenation of the old Alta.
AmoDgst old timers there may be some
sent i mental feeling that maybe gratified
by the revival of a newspaper name that
was once popular. But the great mass
of San Franciscans have no feeling on
the subject, and their patronage will be
bestowed upon the new candidate for
public favor only on cold business prin

The Career of McWalters Alias
He Will Spend Eighteen Months at
A Much Married Han Pleads Guilty to
Bigamy at Santa Barbara—De
tails of His Ca
Santa Barbara, May s.—Yesterday
afternoon, aa was atated by a dispatch
in this morning's Herald, Douglas
Walter McWalters, alias Maj. A. H.
Nave, etc., appeared by special permit
before the auperior court and plead
guilty to the charge of bigamy, preferred
by Miss Carrillo and her brother. He
told a pitiful story of how he waa de
ceived by a lawyer by the name of Mil
ler, whom he paid two years ago $160 to
procure a divorce from Miss Carrillo,
because she refused to accede to hia de
mands as a huaband, and follow him
about in his ramblings. Thia Miller, he
related, wrote him at Guatamala, say
ing that the said divorce waa granted,
and that he waa a free man. Under
these circumstances he immediately re
married. This was hia story, but Judge
Cope did not fall down as waa expected.
He reasoned that the story was false up
on ita face, and sentenced the wily
rogue to 18 months at San Quentin.
Thus ends a moat remarkable matrimo
McWalters is a man of small stature.
His matrimonial tact ia wonderful, and
his amount of gall ia inexhauatible. He
haa a great history in the matrimonial
line, and his Hat of wivea ia almost as
long as that of presidential possibilities.
Sunday he leaves for the north, and
about Tuesday the iron gates will close
behind him, shutting him away from
captivating woman, and out of reach of
irate husbands, brothers and fathers.
Some five years ago he waa first pub
licly noticed, At that t.ime he firat took
unto himself a wife,
In 1888 he married a young lady in
San Francisco, by whom he had one
child. Prior to this marriage it is said
he had a wife somewhere in the eaßtern
states. After spending about a year
with wife No. 2 he departed, taking the
title of Maj. A. H. Nave. Under thia
norn de plume he traveled as a single
man throughout Mexico. He was a
high-flyer and entered the beet of ao
ciety. His frequent debauches were re-
Corted to the United States officials, it
eing aupposed he waa the real Maj. A.
H. Nave of Tennessee. His imposition
was exposed and he left Guatamala in
haste, coming tj California. He had a
great Btory to relate regarding the im
portant part he had taken in the revo-.
lutionary war there, and exhibited a
magnificent diamond ring given him by
He had about $6000 cash, and soon
married a young lady at San Diego. His
etay there was short, but, short aa it
was, he married wife No. 3. While re
aiding there wife No. 1 turned up and
proclaimed herself. Two women in the
aame town waa too much for him, and
he came as far north as Jerusalem,
Ventura county, where he met and
wedded Mias Carrillo after a few dayb'
courtship. With wife No. 3he came to
tfna city, residing here about eight
months. -While here he met a "Mrs.
Eva R. Lysle," whom, as will be aeen
later, he met in Mexico previously.
Eight montha after his marriage with
Miss Carrillo he took her to San Fran
cisco, where a child was born. While
the lady was yet unable to travel, the
brutal impostor left her, returning to
Santa Barbara, aud taking "Mrs. Lysle"
back to the metropolia, married her a
lew blocks distant from the place where
hia fourth wife was with a new-born
With wife No. 5 he started for Guate
mala. There they entered the social
swim, and were made a great deal of
until hia credit and cash gave out. He
then left Guatemala, leaving the fifth
wife behind, coming to this part of the
country again. He went north, remain
ing some months.
On April 17th he arrived in the city
on the evening train, and waa recog
nized by the brother of Miss Carrillo
and arrested. His preliminary hearing
came up in Judge Craw's court ou the
22d, and on Tuesday, May 2d, hia case
was called in the superior court. He
was given until Friday to plead, but
aßked special permission to plead yes
Considerable astonishment waa ex
pressed at his action, but were the feat
urea of the case known it would not be
so. Report haa it that McWalters while
in Guatemala waa maintained as in
structor of arms by the government;
that while acting in that capacity he
was implicated in the death of two
prominent political prieoners, and that
he was compelled to depart therefrom to
save hie life.
Your correapondent Bpoke to him on
the subject this morning, but he denied
the same, saying that be had nothing to
do with the political prisoners. He waa
very talkative and related many of hia
adventures in South America. He was
greatly agitated for fear something con
cerning Miss Emma Boalß would get in
to the papers, and requeated that noth
ing be said. He Baid his highest ambi
tion was to become a lecturer, and that
when bis term of imprisonment expired
he would enter the lecture field.
Thia Miss Boala is hia fifth and last
wife. She is a charming appearing
young woman of demi-blond type, and
is about SO years of age. She also has
quite a history. It might be said, how
ever, that she was married twice prior
to meeting McWalters, her husbands
being prominent linguists of Mexico.
McWalters met her first in Mexico,
where she went by the name of Eva
Lysle. professor of the English language.
