Dear Herald: So mucli lias
been writteu about the Palace Hotel,
tbe lavish scale of expenditure on
which it was erected, its magnitude
and tbe pretentious defects of its
architecture, tbat I am perfectly
sensible it would be a twice told
tale for me to toucb these hack
ueyed topics. But there is one as
pect of this mammoth hotel to
which I never remember to have
seen allusion, and It admits of a
compari-ou which is certainly
novel. Every one has heard of the
eupeib court, which the parallel
ogram form of the building made
so feasible and so obviously sug
gested. It and the colonades which
surround it are tbe only really fine
features of au edifice which may be
fitly termed the "Sbaron-Ralstou
folly." This magnificent court,
with the draft compelling applian
ces, would be an immense success
in Los Angeles or in any other
semi-tropical country. But, iv tlie
climate of San Francisco, It Is one
of tbe most grotesque things con
ceivable. Only fancy any delicate
person sitting out iv this court
yard, in the " cool of the evemug,"
aud taking his or her death of
oohl! The mo»,t robust man iv tlie
world has In wrap his overcoat
around him, when he essays the
experiment, and even then be is
chilled to the marrow. Lit up at
night by electric lights, ihe illus
ion is perfect of au entire region
by moonlight. Were this hotel
planted down in the balmy atmos
phere of Los Angeles, Santa Bar
bara or Ban Diego, and especially
if a dozen or so i.l tho orange trees
of the former place were planted
aiound the court yard, it would be
tbe most exquisite scene imagina
ble. But neither our orange trocs,
■tortile soft South winds blowing
over our illimitable bauks of vio
lets, nre here, and one ouly shiver*
ou looking at this brilliant scene,
and wonders at the misapplication
of wealth. Had Sharon built his
hotel In Los Augeles he might uot
have enriched himself, but he cer
tainly would have acieveil a saui
tary and artistic triumph, fir tlie
<loiug of which valetudinarians
aud tousists would lise up and call

aud * raps could have been iguored,
highly charming and almost

THK CHINESE EMBASSY.
Tlie telegraph will have advised
you of thenirivnl ol tiie Chiuese
Kiiibas.-y, an event of which I was
an eye-witness to day. The suite
was a numerous one, comprising
some lliirly persons, all told. Tlie
baggage, from its multitude and
multipliiy, would have distracted
even a Saratoga Flora McFllmsey.
The more exalted the rank of a
Chinaman, the fatter he is, I
should judge, from the ensemble of
this distinguished Celestial parly.
The grand high Muck-a-muck wore
a white beard, aud a very long one
fora Chinaman. Their coalunie
was not very different from that of
the Angehfio specimen of the ge
nua homo, except that it was much
richer. Stiff brocades formed the
main staple of Ihe garment of the
higher dignitaries. They wore
straw hats of a Celestial pattern,
with the indented crown tilled ill
with some rich crimson feathery
stuff. They were evidently quite
ns curious as Arnerienin would be
In China, aud no sooner were they
fairly landed in the hotel than
they started oil" in carriages to see
thesights. Talking of sights, the
most curious cf all was to see the
way the Chiuese population gath
ered about the Palace Hotel to wit
ness the ariival of their distin
guished fellow countrymen. It
was an illustration of the poet's
happy conceit, "One touch of na
ture makes the whole world kin."
Just precisely as Americans would
turn out to welcome the arrival of
an American Minister in China,
did John Chinaman gather to greet
the representatives of theßrother ol
the Sun and Uncle of the Moon lv
the United Slates.
CESSATION OK BUILDINa IN SAN
I hail learned from Ibe newspa
pers of tbe Golden dale tbat
houses by the thousand here were
without tenauts, but I confess te
an intense surprise at the little
progress which lias been made in
public buildings since I was here iv
July, three years ago. They were
all within only a few months tt
completion. Nolwithstanding the
fact that, since that time, the bo
nanza mines have yielded over one
hundred millions of dollars, tbe
new Exchange and tbe building i t
the Real Estate Associates are the
only new pretentious public edi
fices I have seen. Tho Messrs.
Flood & O'Brien evidently did uot
believe iv overdoing the matter of
local improvement. They have
absorbed untold millions, put
it in their vaults or iv
United States bouds, and
kept it there, and San Francisco
has suffered accordingly and griev
ously. Iv this respect, San Fran
cisco, during tbe past thtee years,
lias been leagues behind Los An
geles. Of course, I speak of the
ratios of improvement.
THE STOCK COARD.
'.' to-day treated myself (0 a look
iuto the splenjld new Stock Ex
change, ou Pine street. Its inte
rior appointments are ou au ex
tensive scale and iv good taste.
Looking down from the gallery on
the crowd of struggling brokers,
my memory went hack to tbe scene
presented in the New York gold
aud stock room when I last saw it,
six years ago. This is said to be a
dull time iv stocks, and probably,
for this reason, the comparison is
hardly a fair oue, but Ibe New
York Board, In the palmy days of
tbe Erie "deal," could lake the rag
off the bush, for noise, iv a tilt with
its San Francisco rival, without
half trying. In the Sau Francisco
Board tbe broilers all gather In a
little circle iv front of the presiding
offleei's dusk, and the turmoil is
not ranch greater than a dispute
between half a dozen Basques iv a
Los Augeles tavern. In New York,
however, each stock was alloted its
corner, aud when the fanfare be
gan it was euougb to frighten off a
hostile army. The volume of tbe
Sau Francisco stock brokers' lungs
is a childish treble compared to the
full diapason of his e'der brother
of Wall street.
I am continually running across
Angelifios here. To-day I encoun
tered Col. R. S. Baker aud J. de
Barth Sborb. Yesterday I was
bailed by J. J. Thorns', Julius
Lyons, and C. H. Simpkins, tbe
latter of whom we all look upon as
a townsman, he is amongst us so
often. I also bad a pleasant chat
With Mr. IT. MoLellan, who was
on his way to Clear Luke, on a
short passu for Ihe benefit of all
aggra valid case of rheumatism.

This afternoon's proceedings iv

the work of the defense ou the trial
of Sprague. The prisoner McCart,
tbe wife of Churchill, the two
daughters of Spraguo and other
witnesses were called to break the
force of Jones's testimony. They
said nothing. There was some evi
dence that the man Ferial, stated
by Curlee to have been with him
in Poli cafion on the fatal nigbt,
was actually iv the county at the
time, though the prosecution
seemed to have proved that he was
not. Monday will pretty certainly
end this case.

eral. The latter oflieial, it is un

Washington, July 27.— The cred

making the issue with North Caro

Set-rotary Fvarts, not to the Presi

who was called into the conference,
took a very positive stand In favor
of tbe Government, asserting its
right to control the cases, and
was so determined that no other
course was open to the Administra
tion, the President suspended
bis orders und directed the Marshal
to adopt tlie couise rtcomnieued by

A MEXICAN OPINION.
What a laßiiiag Paper Haa to Bay of the
(Dai'y Aiiiurdiouto de Polilica, Itcxioo.)
"We purpota giving to our be
loved country men a Constitution
und government rounded upon the
great principles of the United
States of the North." So says the
party of Leido. Let us Impartially
examine the merits of this famous
government which the gentlemen
of the Lerdist parly patronizingly
hold up for the admiration of the
descendants of Montezuma and the
Cooquistadores. The Uuited
States of Ametica are nominally a
Republic, practically a plutocracy
qualified by monocracy. There
money is tint levor which move
file vast machinery of politics, so
ciety, religion itself. Is it uot so?
Let us take a glance at their his
tory for the past thirty years:
Thirty years ago tlie "Gringos"
of the model Republic began the
work of regenerating Mexico by
waging war upon their Republican
sisters, aud robbing us of half our
fairest territory. They seized the
greatdomain of Texas —larger than
all Spain aud Portugal—aud imme
diately converted it luto n land of
negro slavery. They then proceeded
to tight among themselves about
converting tlie rest of our stolen
territory luto slave Statos; and sev
enteen years ago the self-govern
ing citizens or that self-vaunted
"Land t>r the Free" plunged iuto a
civil war uuequaled on this con
tinent iv duration, cost and blood
shed. Incidental to this reign of
anarchy, our own Mexico was
made the prey or European in
trigue, and cursed with a disas
trous foreign invasion.
Thirteen years ago, the superior
ity of "Anglo-Saxon self-govern
meul" culminated In the assassina
tion of the ruling President. For
which they valllantly hanged a
woman. Two years later the Pres
ident's successor was impeached
for misdemeanors. Ten ago
a military chieftain, in whose
character the humanity of Santa
Ana was combined with the abne
gation of Pizarro, was chosen to
the Presidency. At the end of bis
f*ur years term of office, he was al
most unanimously re-elected. He
was a very popular ruler. During
his term of office the Vice Presi
dent of the country, the Secretary
of the Interior (or Hacienda), tlie
Secretary of the Treasury, the Sec
retary of the Navy, the Minister to
England, the President's Private
Secretary,tbeHpeaker of the House
of Representatives, and au army of
minor dignitaries, were all found
guilty or public aud piivate rob
bery! Some were imprisoned, but
the popular President immediately
pardoned them. A public man iv
the United States is rarely brought
to trial for crime. He either waives
a trial by "pleading his privil
ege," ns it Is called, or else submits
his oils to a caucus of his party, or,
in ecclesiastical nasi s, of his church
and la always triumphantly vludi
Two years ago the quadrennial
eleotlou for President occurred.
Befior Tildeu received a majority
of a quarter of a million of votes;
but the party in power favoring his
opponent, anil threatening to use
the army iv favor of the latter, a
compromise was eif'ected, by which
fifteen of the purest men of both
parties were chosen to decide the
question. Those fifteen pure meu
proved their supeiiority by voting
in court exactly as they had voted
at the election. So pure were the
fifteen purest men found in Sodom!
