Herald Steam Printing House.
The Herald Steam Printing House Is
not surpassed by any Job Printing office
on the Pacific Coast, outside of San Fran
cisco, In facilities for doing Job work
Low prloes, good work and expedition
easy be relied upon at this office.
Provincial vs. National Politics.
We confess that tbe situation in
California is such that our interest
is centered Just now rather on Na
tional than State politics. In the
State of California the Democratic
party, and, for that matter, tbe
Republican party, is paralyzed by
tbe general suspicion that corpor
ations and the moneyed power
have had entirely too largo an in
fluence over party movemouts—an
influence which bas extended to
tbe disintegration of party lines
and which calls, most imperative
ly, for a thorough State reorgani
zation of tbe Democracy, at leaßt.
The Republican party ie so entire
ly devoted to corporations, In its
Instincts and history, that it can
get along very well without reor
ganization. Subserviency to corpo
ratons le perfectly natural to it.
But we admit that, in tbe dreary
abandon of a portion of the Democ
racy of California to the dictation
of corporations, we turn, with an
intense relief, to (he determined
and manly attitude of the Na
tional Democracy. The Potter in
vestigati on Is the first note of re
surrection, outside of the commend
able spirit of economy and re
trenchment shown by the last and
the present Democratic House of
Representatives, which we have
of late observed iv tbe
Democratic party. If we de
aire to win, for a season,
the Presidency and tbe other
branches of tbe national govern
ment, we must show that we are
worthy of the trust. No emascu
lated party will ever have the op
portunity of enjoying, even for
four years, the responsibility "of
piwer in the United Stales. Un
like our Republican friend*, wo do
uot think that it is good for any
party to hold power as a prescrip
tlon. "Ride aud tie" is the very
instinct of Republican govern
ment.
We have bad in California to
listen to a fearful amount of pro
vincial ranting about tbe Potter
Investigation. Our telegrams told
us tbe story of Blame, of Maine,
standing iv tbe hall of Ibe
House of Representatives, which
has so often resouniled with
hie | elcquence, find remarking
that more than one hundred Re
publican Congressmen were voting
against a resolution of inquiry
which they wished to see passed,
while more than a hundred Demo
cratic Congressmen were voting
for it, although they devoutly
wished it might be defeated. This
leoneof the curious chapters in
tbe history of tbe great Presiden
tial fraud. There will be rare de
velopments before the majesty of
tbe American people is asserted, as
it surely will be, and politics will,
meantime, see strange bed-fellows.
It Is useless to rely upon tho Re
publican Associated press for any
thing but unadulterated parlizan
ship; but, fortunately, the United
States mails, like the euu and rain,
favor the politically just and un
just alike. Tbe Eastern papers
have at last come to hand and they
tell a somewhat remarkablo story.
We quote first from tho New York
Herald ofMay 23d, which has the
following in its Washington cor
respondence of tlie preceding day;
Tbe republicans, under tlie lead
of Mr. Hale, lifted their hands
against the Presidential title this
afternoon. The Potter resolution
was put through last Friday as a
matter of party discipline, but
against tbe judgment of runny
demncrats, who are dissatisfied that
It does not explicitly deny tbe In
tention to attack the Presidential
title. This dissatisfaction made
itself public to-day in resolutions
Introduced by Mr. Carter Harrison,
of Illinois, in these word.-:
Whereas a select conimttit.ee of tills
has been appolnleit lo impure into
certain frauds alleged to have been com
mitted in Florida and Louisiana In No
vember, 1K76.1H connrctlon with ivturnsof
votes tor electors for l',csldent and Vice
President; and
"Whereas It Is charged that frauds of a
like character were committed nt tbe
same time In the States of Oregon aud
BuuthCarolina; therefore be it
Resolved, That said committee he and
It Is hereby empowerrd to lnqulrelnto tbe
same if, In Its opinion, tcstimonv thereon
of a substantial character shall ho pre
sented to It; and be It further
Resolved, That the Senate and House of
Representatives of tho Forty-fourth Con
gress, having counted tho electoral votes
for President nnd Vice President, and It
having been declared that R. R. Haves
had received the highest number of votes
for President, and William A. Wheeler
the highest number of votes for Vice
President, it 1« not now in the power of
Congress, nor is it tlie purpose of this
House, through said Inve,ligation, 10 nn
nul or attempt to annul the action of the
Forty-fourth Congress in the premises.
Mr. Harrison ntked their consid
eration as a privileged question to
which, of coursp, they were enti
tled as germane to the Potter reso
lution, anil the republicans, who
have made s'ich an ado about the
Potter resolution, signifying a rev
olutionary attack on Ihe Presiden
tial title, had now the opportunity,
If they were sincere, lo vote for Mr.
Harrison's amendment, and thus
definitely settle this matter. The
republican leaders anxiously con
sulted for awhile, and then told
their people not to vote, nnd the re
sult or this was that, though ten
republicans did vote, there was
once more no quorum, aud Mr.
Harrison's sensible resolution was
denied admission and was thus de
feated by the republicans. This at
any rate closes their mouths. If
GENTLE MEN AN D BOY'S FURNISH ING GOO DS, the V cry Best As sortment in
some democrats meditate an at
tack on the Presidential title the
mass of the republican side have
clearly announced that they freely
consent to Ibis design. Their own
act to-day shows a far more revo
lutionary intent than anything tbe
democrats have so far done.
Tbe vote was very significant.
In the first place, of tbe Potter
committee, only one member, Mr.
Blackburn, voted against Mr. Har
rison's resolutions. All the oth
ers, except three absent, voted for
Mr. Harrison, and consequently
voted that it is not now in the
power of Congress, nor is it the
purpose of this House, through
said investigation, to annul or at
tempt to annul the action cf the
Forty-fourth Congress in settling
the Presidency.
Seventy-one democrats voted in
favor of Mr. Harrison's resolutions
and therefore against reopening tbe
Presidential question, and only
fifty voted against Mr. Harrison
and presumably iv favor of reopen
ing tho Presidency, though Mr.
Mills, of Texas, who voted " Nay"
to-day, was understood, the other
day, to stand with Mr. Harrison.
Of the fifty who, by this record, ap
pear to favor an attack on the Pres
idential title, eleveu democrats aud
twe republicansaro from Northern
States, the remaining thirty-nine
are Southern men, and six are from
Kentucky, two from Tennessee,two
from Texas, two from Missouri,
three from Mississippi, ono each
from West Virginia, Florida, South
Carolina and Louisiana, three from
Arkansas, seven from Alabama
sad six from Georgia.
Of the seventy-one who voted with
Mr. Harrison, and thereforeagainst
reopening the Presidential title,
only ten are republicans. Of tbe
sixty-one democrats twenty-four
are Northern and thirty-seven
Southern men; of the Northern
men five are from New York, five
from Illinois, three from Pennsyl
vania ami Ohio, the remainder
being scattering; of tho Southern
men, there were four from each of
the States of Tennessee, Virginia,
Maylaud and Missouri, seven from
North Carolina, three from Texas,
one each from Louisiana, Alabama,
Mississippi and West Virginia, two
from Kentucky. The House was
by no means full, only one member
fiom Louisiana voting at all, and
other delegat'ons being thinly rep
resented.
We have quoted the Jlciald be
cause it is known to Le so fauati
oally auti-Democrat'c. Tho ac-
count, of the same tenor, of the
New York Sun, is equally long,
but we give only the conclusion, as
follows:
Tlie accouuls of tbe conference
held in Fostei's room on Thursday
night last, at which an effort was
made to save Hayes's title by aban
doning his friends, lias drawn out
nearly as many denials as the first
accounts of the Wor inly conference,
where an agreement was made to
secure Hayes's title by abandoning
his friends. Tlie Wormiy confer
ence is now admitted, and will be
proved. It will not be strange if
the same tiling happens of the last
conference. It does appear, how
ever, that some men credited with
being present while Hayes was
there wero not 111 tbe rcom at the
same time with Hayes.
It will be seen, from the forgo
ing extracts, that tho Radical
journals of the Pacific Coast, from
the blatant Chronicle lo the snivel
ing Call, have mistaken their cue,
aud have been dealing nut imbe
cile and provincial politics. The
fact is that the Republicans of the
E»9t are beginning to be ashamed
of the Presidential fraud, and they
are now only anxious to end their
disastrous identity will] it. They
will release themselves from the
guilt of being accessories after the
the fact if they wavh their hands
outright of tho Returning Board
President, and they seem sagac
iously bent on doing just that
thing.
We have never attempted to
conceal our disgust at tbe aspect of
the Constitutional question in tbe
State of California. It is an un
wholesome thing when two great
political organizations show such
fear of the Workingmen as to ap
pear to coalesce lo beat them. The
workingmen really belong In the
parly of Jtfferscn and Jackson;
and, when they aro repelled from
it, there is something "rotten In
Denmark" which will have to be
repaired before the Democratic
party is again successful In Cali
fornia. Certain Democratic and
Republican leaders fancy they
have taken the best course to re
duce Ihe Workingmen's organiza
tion to a political nullity. We
have said before, and we reiterate
the opinion now, that the old and
experienced political organizations
have committed a mistake—an em
phatic mistake. Neither a man
nor a political patty ever loses one
jot or tittlo by manliness or by
standing to their colors. When
political organizations are deliber
ately surrendered to their enemies
their members sometimes develop
a devil may care disposition to
help the fun along, irrespective of
the result. The best way to have
defeated Ihe Workingmen's at
tempt to get hold of the Constitu
tional Convention was to have
made struightout Democratic and
Republican nomination!, We
may he guilty of a tremendous
error in leaning to litis opinion;
but, afterall, we aro half enclined
to think that, aided by our in
stincts, we hit the thing bitween
wind and water. We have not yet
formed a conclusive opinion, but
the way the Constitutional ques
tion present itself to us is that the
Workiugmen have a capital
chance of figuring creditably in the
poll of the delegates when they are
called at Sacramento, aud we en
tertain no doubt iv the world that
the new Constitution, when form
ally promulgated and subjected to
the ordeal of the referendum —the
vote of the people approving or
condom i tig-will be disastrously
defeated. Tf our judgment shall
be proven by the iisue to be false
we shall most penitently titter a
"per mea culpa," and o.ifess that
there are somethings iv heaven
and earth which are uot dreamt of
in our philosophy.
As tbete is some misapprehen
sion about tho matter, we may as
well state that Col. Ayers, ono of
the candidates of the Sau Joso Con
vention, ie in politics a Democrat.
While the Express is strictly inde
pendent from a partizau stand
point, aud its editor has always ad
vocated the light without regard
to his party predilections, Col.
Ayers is a Joffersonian Democrat.
He fulfills in himself the trinity of
qualifications prescribed by Jeller
son for tlie occupant of any office—
he Is honest, he is capable, he is
sober. As a newspaper man our
selves, from a newspaper stand
point, we shall give his candidacy
a hearty advocacy without regard
to "pinto" Conventions, whether
held at San Josd or elsewhere. We
watched the action of the San Jose
Convention with the viaw of sec
onding sucli of its nominations as
we thought Judicious, and the
nomination of Col. Ayers is em
phatically in ilie line of sound
judgment. In the Convention be
would be the right man in the right
place.
Tub meaning of the Poller in
vestigation is disclosed by a stupid
and evidently fragmentary dis
patch which appears in our news
columns. Honest John Sherman,
in a letter, tells Auderson, of the
Louisiana Returulng Board, that,
as soon after the 41h of March as
possible, he will be rewarded by
Hayes and himself for the stand ho
has taken. That is to say, in vul
gar English, "Go on iv your vil
lainous aud Judas like work, the
thirty pieces of silver are ready for
you." And they were undoubtedly
ready. Olllce to their hearts' con
tent awaited Anderson aud Wells.
Our renders may wager all Ihe
spare change they have that the
Potter investigation, unlike the
Grover investigation conducted by
Oliver I'crry Morton, will disclose
something. Whether or no the
Associated Press allows Californi
ans to hear the evideuce, iv seven
days the New York papers will ar
rive, and we tako the contract of
keeping our readers advised.
It gives us pleasure to note tliat
Mr. W. E. Sliepliettl, of tlie Jeiiiu
ra Signal, has heen nominateti by
the Democracy of that county as a
candidate to the Constitutional
Convention. Mr. Shepherd is a
newspaper man of ability and
standing, aud we should look to
him for sterling work In the event
of his election.
Notwithstanding Republican
clamor to the contrary, the Demo
cratic House of Representatives has
placed itself eolemuly on the record
as iv favor of iuvestigatiug any
sustained allegation of electoral
fraud In any State.

Washington, June Ist.—Before
the Potter Committee to-day, Judge
Sliellabargor, counsel for Slier
man, said in reply to a question,
that he bad no knowledge of
Sherman's ever having written
suoli a letter. Butler offered a res
olution, which was adopted, pro
viding that Ihe paper identified
he received but uot read until Sec
retary Shermau he called before
the committee and have au oppor
tunity to see it, whereupon Chair
man Potter noli tied Sherman of
tbe action of tbe committee. A
letter was produced, signed by wit
ness, addressed to Weber, stating
that Packard was raising hell be
cause of their refusal to protest
agaiust the returns In their respec
tives parishes. Recess.
After recess Secretary Sherman
appeared ami the letter which was
claimed by Anderson to bo a reply
lo his letter, was showu lo the Sec
retary, who said: "Mr. Chairman,
I believe, upon my responsibility,
from the view I have taken, that
I never wrote such a letter. If I
have written it, It must have been
when the Returning Board con
vened to count the returns and I
do not believe I ever wrote this
letter. At the same time there are
things in this letter I would have
written to these or any other men
engaged iv such occupation, but
I don't btlievo I wrote this let
ter."
A vote was then taken on the
question of having the letter read
and it resulted affirmatively. It
is in substance as follows:
Your note of even date just re
ceived. Neither Mr. Hayes, my
self nor the other gentlemen with
me shall forget the obligations un
der which you will have placed us
if you stand firm in the position
you aro taking. From a long con
versation with Mr. Hayes lam
justified in assuring you that you
will be provided for as soon after
the 4th of March as possible, and
in case you are compelled to leave
tho State, that will not materially
interfere.

Chicago, June Ist.—Under date
of April 13th, Major Quldo Ilges,
commanding the Seventh Infantry,
at Fort Reuton, iuforms military
headquarters here that hostile
Sioux, Arrapahces, Cheyennes and
other Indians assembled at the
eastern corner of Cypress moun
tains, known as Sitting Bull's
Camp. They contemplate an early
invasion soulh of the boundary
line. Major Ilges considers the
situatiuu serious. Two thousand
warriors, trusted by nobody in that
region, tully armed and equipped,
defiant aud ready for a fight, have
caused him to move his fort to a
new place better fitted for defense.
Sitting Bull recently made a ran
corous harangue and promising to
return to the United States when
the grass grows and make the "so
jers weep." A grand war dance
aud mustering of various tribes
follo-.ved this speech.

I lie Untirr Hnrf.irsi Disaster.
London, June 1. —It is extreme
ly difficult lo obtain exact Infor
mation about the sinking of the
"Grosser Kurfurst." The survivors
were taken on board the other iron
clad aud nobody from either of the
three vessels has lauded at Folks
bone or Dover. All the morning
papers give different estimates of
the number of lost and saved. The
Telegraph reports IG7 saved out of
a crew of 620. The confusion and
conflict of statements yesterday
were so great that the first boat
whicli came ashore at Folksbone
reports that the foundered vessel
was Ihe British iron clad "War
rior." An eye witness writes that
the "GiosierKurfursL" was landing
the squadron and that the "Koe
nig Wilhelm" was following and
struck the "Kurfurst" iv an effort
to wear ship to avoid a merchant
man. Twenty-three of the "Kur
furst's" officers were saved. The
"Preussen" was some distance
astern at the time of tho disaster
and did not come up in time to
assist In tho rescue.
