The DAILY HERALD has
nearly DOUBLE the Circu
lation of either contempo
rary paper published In Los
Angeles. As an advertising
medium it Is consequently of
DOUBLE their value.
The Agricultural Society.
A meeting was held at the Claren

Considerable preliminary conversa
tion took place, in the course of which
this journal received, as might be ex
pected, any amount of adverse criti
cism and uncomplimentary noti
ces. The real business of the meeting
consisted in auditing accounts and set
tling the financial obligations. We
are informed that the bills received
were very heavy, and that accounts
up to $2,100 were passed. The associ
ation still thinks that the Hekald
has been unjust, that is, as far as we
can learn, opinion is about equally
The Herald favors, and hopes to
favor in all coming time, the develop
ment of the country, through the
means of agricultural associations,
and by other modes; but it will al
ways reserve the right to oppose the
unworthy and sanction the merito
rious in everything pertaining to the
interests of the people. The associa
tion, as a body, is the best is the State.
It is the ring inside of the asso
ciation that we fight. Therefore
the sooner uncompromising enmity
is declared openly between monopo
lies and cliques and the Herald, the
better. From the first issue we prom
ised independence. We pledged our
selves to scorn subserviency to any
party or clique, and, as far as any
party or clique enters into any body,
society or corporation, so far will this
journal fight it or them.
The statement in this journal that it
had written more, done more, and
worked harder for the association, than
any other Los Angeles journal has
not been denied. When it is, the
Herald will give abundant proof that
the statement is incontrovertible.
Our fight is against measures, not men,
and it rests with the people of South
ern California to decide whether they
will support a fearlessly out-spoken
journal, or whether they desjje to re
lapse into the old ruts made by the
wheels of selfish rings. Let the bit
terest opponents of this journal turn to
the files of the paper from the second
of October until the last day of the
Fair, and they dare not deny the as
sistance it has given them. Let them
turn to our files since, and they will
find that the severe and uncompro
mising criticisms are but uupleasant
truths, which were better told now
than later. As to the inuendoes that
the District will lose the appropriation
from the State next year, that is an
other monopoly trap to catch the
unsuspicious. Next year will proba
bly see the best agricultural exhibi
tion, and the best races ever held here;
and long before the fair is held the As
sociation will own that they have to
thank, instead of to condemn, the Los
Anoeles Daily Herald.

Washington, November 10.—Sec
retary Fish consented to be interview
ed to-day on the subject of the Virgin
ius and the Spanish executions at San
tiago de Cuba. To-night your corres
pondent waited upon the Secretary to
substantiate the original interview.
Mr. Fish said that his natural sym
pathies were with the Cuban cause,
but that in his official position he
could not operate in favor of humanity
there, while unauthorized filibusters
were using the United States ports to
At out expeditions, contrary to law and
treaty. He stigmatized the recent and
preceding summary executions by the
Spanish volunteers as inhuman and
atrocious slaughters; but intimated
that the only proper way to stop them
was to act directly upon the Spanish
home Government through our Mm-»
ister, who had used his good offices
several times already to procure
changes in the Captain Generalcy, by
the substituting a mild viceroy for one
more bloodthirsty. The trouble was
with the volunteers resident in Cuba,
who by social wheedling or terrorizing
each new Captain General, made him
an adjunct to their spirit of massacre.
The Secretary said, without restraint,
that these volunteers in Cuba ought to
be politically extinguished and classed
at Madrid as worse than the insur
gents. They had given the home Gov
ernment, which was well intcntioned,
as much perplexity as the reckless
friends of Cuba had given the United
Mr. Fish believed that the existing
Government in Spain was liberal and
humane. The summary executions at
Santiago might have been delayed
had our Cousul at that point. A N.
Young, of Kentucky, been at his post.
Young, however, was either at the
Ebbit House, in Washington City, or
somewhere between here and New
York at the time. Mr. Hall, Acting
Consul General at Havana, had no
communications with Santiago in
time to stop these murders. Moreover,
only one of the four victims claimed
to be an American. Ryan was proba
bly a naturalized citizen, but the State
Department could not act on hearsay.
Nothing had been heard from Madrid
since Saturday, and there was no
probability of more information in a
documentary form on which the Secre*
tary could act, for ten days to come.
Had our Consul at Santiago been in
his place, a timely dispatch to Madrid
might have stayed the execution, but
the murders were rushed through in
accordance with the devilish spirit of
As to Santa Rosa, one of the victims,
Mr. Fish said he had already saved
him once from death, and that he was
foolhardy to risk his life a second
It having been reported thai the
Secretary instituted a comparison be
tween the case of the Virginius and
the Trent, Mr. Fish said that in this
he was misquoted. He did say that
the Cuban insurgents wanted us to
give them more direct assistance than
the Alabama had given the Southern
rebels, and for which we had sum
moned England to pay us fifteen mill
ions of dollars. As to the capture of
the Virginius by the Tornado, there
were three distinct ways in which the
case might be presented. If the Vir
ginius was lighted In Spanish waters
and chased to sea, or if she was sighted
on the high seas and chased toward
Jamaea, international law and treaty
must decide the matter. If captured
within a league of Jamuiea, the Brit
ish Government would have cogni
zance of the case.—[Cincinnati Com

THE CUBAN QUESTION.
Tho following ii a portion of an ui>
tich' which appears in the New York
Htrald ofthe 13th Nov., on the Cuban
question: ▼ ▼
There are crimes which outrage hu
manity and exhaust the patience of
the civilized world—crimes which, by
their enormity, prompt the uprising
of vigilance, committees and tiie swift
punishment of the offenders without
the tardy process of the machinery of
the law. Of such a character is the
hurried butchery at Santiago de Cuba
of fifty-six of the persona captured on
the Virginius and carried into that
port by a Spanish man-of-war. The
atrocity of the act is so great as to ren
der it difficult to write of it dispassion
ately aud with that calmness of judg
ment necessary in the consideration of
questions Involving great national in
terests. The first impulse of the
American people will be to avenge the
murders that have been committed
and the insult that has been offered to
us as a nation, by retribution as swift
and terrible as the crime by which it
has been provoked. The popular voice
would applaud the action ot the Presi
dent if he should send a fleet ot' iron
clads to Santiago de Cuba to demand
the surrender of the Spanish bute her
Burriel, and of the commander of the
Tornado, to be dealt with according to
their deserts, under the penalty of the
destruction of thetowuand the sink
ing of every Spanish war vessel fn the
harbor in case of refusal. The long
list of outrages by Which this last
crime had been preceded has deprived
the Spanish rule in Cuba of the sym
pathy of all Christian people, and the
world would rejoice if its career of ruf
fianism and blood should be suddenly
brought to a close by the just ven
geance of an indignant nation. But
wo have duties and responsibilities
which we cannot disregard, and which
no passion, however natural and how
ever violent, should tempt US to forget.
Our great strength as a nation and the
feebleness ofthe tottering government
which has offered us the insult, render
it the more incumbent upon us to ex
ercise some degree of patience and to
be calm as well as iirm in our demand
Fifty-six. of the people found on
board the Virginius have been mur
dered by the Spanish butchers In
Cuba. We nse the term •'murdered"
advisedly; for they had no trial and
were under the lawful protec
tion of the American Hag, of which
they could not be legally deprived un
til the Virginius had been proved be
fore a competent court to have been
other than an American vessel enti
tled to the protection of the United
States. The evidence that the mur
der was a wilful one, committed with
the full knowledge of the character of
the crime, is proved by the words of
the Governor of Santiago de Cuba,
who declared that the prisoners should
be slaughtered before any outside in
terference could be offered; by the in
terception of the telegram of the act
ing American Consul at Santiago de
Cuba to our Consul at Jamaica, and by
the cutting of the telegraph wires to
prevent the reception of any orders to
stay the executions from the Captain
General at Havana or the home gov
ernment at Madrid. There was not a
pretence of law, therefore, to warrant
the killing of the men, and the words
and acts of the murderers prove that
they were sensible that the crime
would be prevented if time should be
allowed for legal interference. Noth
ing that may hereafter be proved
against the Virginius can alter these
facts. But we now have more reason
than ever to believe that the capture
of the vessel was in violation of treaiy
obligations and international law,
provided she was of American owner
ship. From nil the accounts of the
time consumed in the chase and the
position of the Virginius when cap
tured, it is certain that she was not in
Spanish waters, but on the high seas
when sighted hy the Tornado. Such
being the fact she was not liable to
capture in time of peace, and her case
is precisely similar to that of the Deer
hound. Spain has persistently denied
the existence of a state of belligerency
in Cuba, and a nation must accept till
the consequences of the position she
chooses to assume. There can be no
articles contraband of war if war does
not exist; and unless the Virginius
had been caught by the Spanish au
thorities violating any of tiie munici
pal laws or regulations of their ports
she was not. according to the argu
ments of Secretary Fish, liable to
search and seizure on the high seas,
although she might have landed arms
