A Word of Warning.
The Herald is too genuine a
friend of Democracy to be afraid to
give its party friends io (be Cali
fornia Legislature a word of warn
ing and advice. lago-like friends
can afford to suppress tbe truth;
and, with honeyed words, lure the
object of their professed devotlou to
destruction. Not so with tbe
Democrat from conviction, who
loves his party. The Democratic
party has filled to the American
nation, during tbe last hundred
years, an ofllce analogous to that
of the tribunes of tbe old Roman
Republic. It is the representative,
par excellence, of the common peo
ple. Tbe "codfish aristocracy"
of the United States have delighted
Id styling us "the great unwashed."
Tbe man who has to earn his daily
bread In the sweat of bis brow can
not, It is true, be as particular in
his ablutions as the curled darling
or fortune; and, to that extent, the
reproach was a just one. The Dem
ocratic party has always proudly
accepted the " new riches" style of
Insolence of its adversaries. It has
realized perfectly that, in a new
Republic, tbe popular party—the
party that embraced tbe sinew and
muscle—might be sublime and epic
from its energy and Democratic
force, but tbat puling, illegitimate
■training after aristocracy should
only meet with unmeasured con
tempt. As a consequence, the Dem
ocratic party has always counted
amongst its members tbe finest
gentlemen in the United States,
though it has never, as a party, set
up the pretence of being tlie "gen
Tbe Democratic Legislature of
California should bear these facts
of our almost immemorial history
iv mind. Ours is not tbe party of
corporations, aud we should concede
nothing to them not exacted by
the strict letter of justice. The
Democratic party should oc
cupy the middle ground between
communists and the men who are
willing to sacrifice everything to
rich men and corporations. The
Democratic party of California
made a pledge, two years ago, to
restrain the insolence of corpora
tions. It devised, at that time, au
incipient measure of legislative re
straint on railways which has had
excellent effects so far. Its Board
of Commissioners of Transporta
tion has gone ou, in good failh,
and has perfected a scheme of re
strictive legislation, supplementary
to the O'Connor bill, whose enact
ment into a law would put the
people of this State beyond the
reach of railway oppression. It
secures the fruits of all the im
provements already made, aud in
troduces new aud admirable fea
tures of administration into tlie
government of railways. The duty
of the Democratic Legislature is a
plain one. It should pass the bills
of the Commissioners with no
other modifications than those
which lean towards additional pre
cautions in the interest of tlie peo
ple. It should legislate emphati
cally in the interest of tlie masses.
There is only one way to render
Kearney a perfectly insignificant
fellow, and tbat is to show that
the great and invincible Democrat
ic party is now, as always, tlie
champion of the people.
If tbe Democratic party shirks
its duty, we leave to tho Republi
can orgaus the much relished task
of telling what will happen to its
candidates. Of one thing we are
assured, and that is that the Dem
ocratic party of tlie nation will re
main true lo its traditions. Any
development of Laboringmen
strength in the Eestern states will
only contribute to tbe Democratic
victory. But why have a hiatus—
a mere temporary hiatus, it is true,
only Involving a change of Demo
cratic leaders—in California. All
that the Democratic majority ln
both branches needs to do is to pass
a just fares and freights bill, and a
fsw statutes rendering the sojourn
of the Chinaman iv California as
disadvantageous as possible to the
Mongolian, repeal the "gag-law,"
with a few ringing resolutions aud
call a Constitutional Convention.
With these things done, together
with the usual quantum of expedi
ent local legislation, the Demo
cratic party will be invincible.
With these things left undone
well, the less a Democratic journal
has to say of the consequences, per
haps the better.

After all Anderson, one of the
quartette of Louisiana rogues who
made a fraudulent President, only
gets two years at hard labor iv the
State penitentiary. Tbe verdict
which consigns him to the
ignominy of a felon's punishment
should be made sacred in the eyes
of Republicans by the fact that
two full-blooded negroes were on
the jury that convicted him. It
was confidently hoped, to tlie last,
by tbe friends aud apologists of
fraud, that the presence of these two
American citizens of African de
scent would "hung the jury, and
render the conviciton of Anderson
impossible. But Ihe springs of
right are just as accessible in the
soul of a black man as iv that of
bis Caucasian brother, and one of
the wretches who, through perjury
and forgery, made Hayes Presi
dent, is now in a felon's garb.
How comfortable the usurper of old
Mr. Tllden's place must feel lv

Ex-Senator Charles Maclay
informs us that he will go up to
Sacramento in a few days with a
view of lending his influence to
the passage of the bill giviug Los
Angeles two aunuat sessions of tlie
Supreme Court of California. The
importance of this measure cannot
be exaggerated. Gross stupidity
and an unpardonable inertness on
the part of the people of Los Ange
les only can prevent our getting
not only this boon, but a United
States Judge for the Southern Dis
trict of California. Our own mem
bers of the Legislature will, of
course, do all that lies iv their
power to accomplish the needed in
novation upon the present circuit of
the Supreme Court of the State. But
every citizen or Los Angele3 who
has a particle of influence should
bring it to bear on the Legislature.
We are pleased to see Mr. Maclay
taking Ibis personal interest in the
matter, and we trust that his good
example will be followed by our
leading citizen.-, irrespective of
We confess tbat we are glad to
note that even scientific indicia
fail occasionally, when employed
to forecast the weather. Last Sun
day the lowest barometer remarked
in Los Angeles and Sau Diego for
four years led every ono to look for
a heavy storm. The wealhei-cock
pointed straight lo the heart of the
rain (matter. And yet tlie
storm failed to come. A fortunate
tiling iudeed was it for us that it
did not come. All Southern Cali
fornia is thoroughly saturated, aud
a heavy rain, without an intermis
sion of a few days, would do us in
calculable damage. We have had
the saving intermission now, and
the llnodgates may open again
without ptotest from the well
wishers of tin's section. It is a
pleasant fact, however, that a crop
of unsurpassed quantity and qual
ify is assured without another drop
of rain. A shower or,two towuids
the end of March would not come
amiss, iv any event.
The Pacific Coast Steamship
Company should take advantage of
the new Oregon "deal" to put at
least one more steamer on between
Han Francisco and Los Angeles.
The raising of first-class fare from
San Francisco to Portland from
$7 50 to $25, gives our steamship
company an opportunity of secur
ing the great bulk of the tourist
and other travel which was at
tracted to Oregon by this very low
scale of fares. Even the steerage
passenger now has to pay $14 to
get to Portland. With three
steamers a week the Pacific Coast
Steamship Company would prob
ably find its hands full of trafic. Of
course, travel this way would be
greally stimulated by a reduction
of fares, but iucreased accommoda
tion should be provided, iv any
Los Anqei.es so far has ranked
as the banner Democratic county
of the State. We hope the utmost
the Democratic Legislature of Cal
ifornia shall give us will not stop
at three members of the Constitu
tional Convention when our popu
lation, as shown by the vote at the
Presidential election, entitles us to
six. That would be too severe a
strain on our loyalty.

C. Duncau, defaulting President of
tlie Pioneer Bank, was captured at
12:18 this morning, at 50!) Kearney
street, within a stone's throw of
the City Hall. Friday night, Capt.
Lees, of the delective force, be
came convinced from observing tlie
movemeuts of certain individuals
that Duncan was concealed at the
place mentioned. Tlie premises
were placed under surveilance and,
shortly berore twelve last night, a
descent was made on the place. Of
ficers were stationed guarding
every avenue of escnpo aud Lees
knocked at the door of tlie room in
which ho had previously satisfied
himself Duncan was concealed.
The door was cautiously opened by
a man who attempted to close it
again, but Lees forced his way in,
entered the bed room and discov
ered Duncan rising from the bed.
He was taken to the Chief of Po
lice's office where he was soon
joined by his son, W. T. Duncan,
who had been notified of his arrest.
The meeting between father and
sou, who had worked so assiduously
to conceal the whereabouts aud ef
fect the flight of his father, was
most alfecting. After the Interview
Duncan was removed to a cell in
the city prison, his son sharing his
confinement. The arrest has caused
a great sensation in the city.

which placed Confederate soldiers

tlie extraordinary speech made by

tlie grounds that some of the bene
