THE UNITARIAN THURSDAY.
An Inter: Bting Programme Cappad bj a
The programme of tho Unitarian
Assembly at Union. Hall last night
was notably enjoyable anil charm
ing. The Hall was tilled to Its ut
most capacity by an Intelligent and
fashionable audience. The exer
cises of the evening were intro
duced by an artistic solo, executed
on tho piano by Miss Falrman,
Tho Veni Creator trio from La
Hache, hy Mr. and Mrs. Fanning
and Dr. Corbett, was finely ren
dered and was hugely enjoyed by
the audience. Mr. F. W. Ludo
vlci and Miss Fairmau favored the
audience with a piano aud violin
duo, In which tho lady approved
herself to be a thorough mistress of
the instrument and Mr. Ludovici
gave a Lot Angeles audience an
other opportunity, which they
were quiclc to embrace, of recog
nizing the sympathetic and inim
itable way iv which be handles the
violin. We cannot forbear expres
sing the keen delight we always
oxperience iv listening to the do
liclous playing of Mr. Ludovici.
He handled several themes in part
second with the delicacy and power
of a master, the third piece being
in response to ono of the warmest
encores wo have ever seen vocifer
ated by a Los Angeles audience.
Mr. It. A. Fisher, lv taking upon
his shoulders tho task of reading
the "closet scene from Hamlet"
showed a pluck which would en
title him to enact the role of the

that the Republicans in this county

would be the case if Republicans

self writing a note to County
Clerk Potts. It ran as follows:
"Dear Wilse: If the Judge makes
my sentence ten years you enter it
upon your book one year and ob

human nature for you. His sen

Editor Herald: Those who
cannot be famous, tho next best
thing for them to do is to make
themselves notorious. This is eas
ily done. They have simply to do
something outrageous or so ridicu
lously out of llio common tule of
life that all tho world will wonder
why they did it. This is a sure
way of attracting attention. A no
body thereby becomes somebody
and ho achieves au individuality
of fame which otherwise he would
I have seen in my life time many
a nobody springing like mush
rooms to tho surface of public
movements and push themselves
forward into a leading position,
and, judging from their dictatorial
sway of action, one would naturally
believe that they supposed I hey
were modeled to rule nud that ev
erybody else wus created to render
them passive obedience If they,
by any means, sboulddiscover men
ot superior brains in their ranks
they Invariably turn a green eye
upon them aud deal with them as
enemies, hence they are always in
trouble. I have known some of
these clouds without water to im
pede the progress of good and use
ful movements and, by their thirst
for power and their encroachments
upon tho rights of others, very
olteu drive away with just indig
nation and contempt some of the
best members of the clubs they
preside over. But their iron rule
never lasts long. They ride on tlie
wings of excitement which, in the
long run, ends in their own morai
downfall and the wandering stars
arooifin search of other fields of
action to foment their own shame.
Now, sir, in consideration of past
experience, should not the work*
iiigmen be very careful iv organiz
ing their clubs and keep from
power all such as tho above adveu
uirers and place lv office men of
sound mind, honest inteutions and
of unquestionable integrity.regard
less ot what they may possess of
this world's goods? The working
men as a rule think too much of
tho representatives of capital and
too little of themselves. The in
terest of the capitalist is to keep
the workingmau down w here he is
and the interest of tho working
man is to elevate himself both so
cially and politically, therefore
their Interest cannot possibly be
identical; hence they can never
work iv harmony for the achieve
ment of tho same result.
If the workingmau will be free.liim
self must strike the blow. Before
workingmen can consistently rem
edy the social aud political disease
of our nation, they must llrst put
their own house iv order. We have
now in our midst a firebrand bear
ing the plausible uumo of Home
League, professing to have for its
object the patronizing of home in
dustry, but the real object of this
officious faction is to draw tlie at
tention of the workingmen from
their own movement and lead
them into tlie trap which they
have laid for them. Now, what I
want to draw your attention to is
this: The Workingmen have two of
their Club Prosideuts and an ex-
President figuring amongst these
motley shams to the injury of their
own cause, and I am informed that
they havo been making use of the
latter in various parts of the coun
ty as the organizer ami champion
of the Workiugmeu'a movement iv
this city, to promote the iuterests
of tbe Homo League. Surely if we,
the Workingmen, have no pruning
hooks iv our Clubs, it is high time
we had them to cut off those rotten
branches that are daily impeding
the growth of our glorious tree of
right and liberty. Our cause will
never prosper as long us we have
such double-minded blowers of hot
and cold, who shout with the
hounds and run with the bare, at
the head of our movement. We
need tho right men iv the right
place—men of honest ini nils, with
their heart and soul in tho cause,
who will not condescend to Bell
their birthright for a mess of por
Now, sir, I wrote (he above letter
for the Voice of the People with the
puro motive of Impressing upon
the minds of the Workingmen the
necessity of exercising caro and
proper deliberation in tho election
of good and competent men to fill
responsible positions in their
Clubs. I have now before me
while I write the financial ac
counts of the last fall election,
wherein I find four or five design
ing men signing orders for each
other in turns upon Mr. F. Signo
ret, the uufortunato treasurer
at that time, ami that gentleman
is left to daneo to the tune of $234
out of pocket to this day aud pay
his own fl ldler. Now, with no
other intention than simply to keep
such tricksters from power, I of
fered my humble communication
to two of the three revising Com
mittees of the Worklngmeo's
paper, who approved of it BDd de
livered it into tho bands of the
printer. But, by some strange
misadventure, tlie third party got
hold of it and pronounced it us not
tit for pubheatiou ami thus over
ruled the decision of the other two
without cousultlng them. For the
information of this would-be editor
you will allow me to say that if he
is going to hug "our child" by con
sulting feelings and not principles
and substituting policy for truth,
he is In danger of smothering him
before he leaves his swaddling
clothes. If the Workingmen want
a paper to represent them they
must have one that w ill fearlessly
expose the wrong and defend the
right and denounce corruption
wherever he finds it, from the
President of the United States down
to the Presidents of Worktnatraen'e
Clubs. Yours truly,
Col. J.J. Ayers.

A Good Suggestion.
The editor of the San Diego Union
has been ranging his editorial eye
over this district, with a view of
selecting a man who is eminently
fitted to represent this people as a
delegate to the approaching Con
stitutional Convention. In so do
ing we think he has shown a dis
cernment that well attests his
souud judgment. He names Col.
James J. Ayers, editor of Ihe Lob
Angeles Evening Express. The
"Wo have seen several names
mentioned in connection with tbe
representation from this District
lv the Constitutional Convention.
But there are very few of them
that are capable of tilling the bill.
If we might be permitted to sug

needs of the poople. We believe
that the press of California ought
to bo represented iv the Conven
tion, aud we know no member of
it better titled to aid In making a
new constitution than Col. Ayers."
If tbe people at large knew Col.
Ayers as wo and many others kuow
him, and if the general clamor for
the best men is made insincerity,
wo think there would be uo doubt
about liis election. But if availabil
ity (in the partisan sense) is to be
the test, the Union has probably
made a mistake. Col. Ayers is
v raau of honest purpose, souud
judgment and cloar convictions.
At all times deliberate and fair in
bis investigations, bis conclusions
at once become the unfailing
guides for his future course In deal
Ing with all questions that claim
his attention. Iv the main, bis
efforts iv behalr or his adopted
State have resulted in good. And
his labors, it should be remembered,
have taken v very wide range.
Few men iv the State have done
more than he to form what we con
ceive to be a souud, healthy public
sentiment. If this is the kind of
man the people of California desire
to help frame ths organic law of
the land, we are satisfied that Col.
Ayers ought to bo elected by a
handsome majority.— Santa Moni
