A ... of History
It may perhaps be an open ques
tion M to whether the Democratic
party la the leet eesilon of Congress
Old right to plant itself on tbeprlu
•lpl* of exposing the fraudulent
methods by which Hayes was
•Bade President while conceding
toe Inviolability nf his tenure of
the offloe. There can be no doubt,
however, of the right and even duty
Of Democrats and, indeed, of all
oKiseni, to discuss tbe enormity of
the aacrlfio of right and of popular
sovereignty involved in the Flori
da and Louisiana frauds and the
Electoral Commission. Democrats
have "xparlenced no little degree
of embarrassment in doing this
through the supposed fact that Mr.
Tilden oonsented to waive his
rights and abide by the decision of
aa unconstitutional Commission.
The sharp and acrimonious corres
pondence between Congress
man Henry J. Watterson and
Abram S. Hewitt first sug
gested a doubt as to whether
Mr. Tilden bad ever been a party
to tho bargain. In Mr. Watterson's
last and contemptuous letter un
voted to Mr. Hewitt, he calls upon
Mr. Manton Marble, in tbe interest
of the Democratic party and of
troth, to break tbe seal of silence
whloh bad hitherto closed his
mouth, and give to the country
tho real facts. As a result or Mr.
Marble's opportune appearance in
the controversy, we learn that Mr.
Tilden at uo time consented to the
settlement precipitated by a num
ber of Democratic Senators, that
hs demanded tbe widest possible
public discussion of the issues in
volved and inflexibly maintained
his position to the last tbat the
whole controversy should be set
tled by constitutional methods.
We cannot forbear quoting the
following pregnant passages from
Mr. Marble's pamphlet. They il
lustrate perfectly an attitude which
Mr.Tilden consistently maintained
from first to last, and from which
nothing could swerve him:
Mr. Tilden, in his interview
With Mr. Hewitt nn the 14th, did
not withhold the grounds of his ob
jection to tbe bill, as a policy, or in
its details. Expressing some sur
prise at the fact, of which he whs
repeatedly nssurtd by Mr. Hewitt,
that Ibe Democratic riUnatois bnd
already determined upon their
course whatever his ail vice or wish
es might be, and some surprise al
tbe Secrecy which had shrouded the
gestation nf their project, Mr.Til
den observed that secrecy In re
apect to any plan implicating the
rights and inleiests of so many,
was a mistaken and unfortunate
policy. He recommended tlie wid
eet publicity, the fullest discussion,
tbe freest consultation, as a Demo
oratic method always excellent iv
Itself and contributing to ihe pros
perlty and stability of ail self-gov
erument, and iv Ihe present in
stance uo way hurtful, hut advan
tageous rather, to the interests of
tbo Democratic party.
To the argument of haste, Mr.
"There is time enough. It is a
month before tlie count. It had
beet be used, all of if, in making
tbe people and their agents fully
acquainted witli their rights and
To the statement that (lie Senate
Committee would not delay for
this In present their bill, with the
unanimous approval of its three
Democratic members, to tlie Re
publican Senate, Mr. Tilden re
"It is a panic of pacificators.
They will act in haste and repent
To Mr. Hewitt's representations
nf the danger of a collision of force
witb the Executive, Mr. Tildon re
"Nevertheless, this action is too
precipitate. The fear* of collisiou
are exaggerated. And why surren
der now? You can always surren
der. That Is all you have lo do
after being beaten. Why surren
der before the battle, lor fear of
having to surrender after the but
tle is over?"
Mr. Tildeu's criticisms of tlie de
tails of the bill, of which in no
khapecould he approve either the
policy or the substance, exemplify
the politics! sagacity of the veteran
"If an arbitration is to be adopt

Tbe scheme which Mr. Hewitt bad
brought, contained in itsllisi dralt
a provision by which six Judges
were to be described in the act, one
Of them to be elm,mated by lot.
To this Mr. Tildeu's objection was
peremptory. Bald he:
"I may lose the Presidency, hut
I will not r»ffle for it."
He was pressed to say that if the
bill could be modified so as in tlx
the HveJudges hy a positive pro
vislou, he would give it hia ap
proval, aud it was urged that the
attempt to modify would fail un
less It were alleged that tbat would
make tbe bill acceptable to blm. '.
He firmly declined. Besides Its
risks and Impolicy, and besides all
other objections to it, tbe bill
would still bave left open tbe func
tion and duty of the tribunal itself,
upon which afterward its own de
cisions (no evidence of the very
truth aliunde) left its own exist
ence a political solecism. But the
authors of the bill had negotiated
themselves into leaving the powers
of the tribunal to the tribunal
itself, as was apparent In the Sen
ate debate on its passage.
To many persons tho presence of
Get). Sherman in Arizona is indi
cative of au approaching war Willi
Mexico. This has baen asserted to
have been a pet scheme of Ihe ail
ministration ever sin ■ ■ inaugura
tion day. For our part we do not
believe in the imminence of such
a war. The American people are
rather in the humor of reomquer-
Ing their right to choose their
rulers and retrench their expendi
tures tha.i of adding to tho Na
tional debt and increasing Ihe dif
ficulties uuder which we labor. The
element which would favor a war
with Mexico h not so large as is
generally supposed, and tlie admin
istration, if it fancies it would be
come popular by such an expedient,'
would find itself. very much mis
taken. There are no misunder
standings between the two coun
tries which could not fall to he re
moved by a frank discussion and a
spirit of conciliation. Besides, tlie
war would bo sought expressly
with a view of diverting tho atten
tion of the American people from
grave internal questions which
should bo settled for all time. The
United States are not in the habit
of plunging info war upou trivial
pretexts Our last and only war
w'th Mexico was owing lo that
country's determined and persist
ent effort to conquer tlie State of
Texas, which had declared its inde
pendence of Mexican rule aud its
desire to enter the American
Union. Such a conjuncture as that is
notlikely to arise for years to come.
As it would he both impolitic and
unjust to fall upon Mexico and ab
sorb her by main force, our govern
ment should make a hearty and
honest efFort to allay all misunder
standings anil to bring about a cor
dial aud profitable intercourse be
tween the two peoples. Some time
or other we may perhaps Hud
Mexico iv the humor of parting,
for a consideration, with her north
ern province? of Chihuahua,
Souora, Sloaloa and Lower
California, and we should
gladly embrace such an op
portunity for v territorial bar
gain. A short line drawn
from the Gulf of Mexico to the
Gulf of California would give us a
far better boundary ibun the lung
and straggling one we have now.
Such an acquisition would do away
wiiii International troubles which
have arisen mainly from the lung
and straggling boundary which ex
is ing treaties have established be
tween the two countries. Cut
force, until Mexico lias giveuus
some decisive provocation, is alto
gether out of the question as in
volving evils which would fur
overbalance nil possible benefits.
Tub Alia demurs to our sugges
tion that lbs two Vacancies in the
Constitutional Convention should
be filled from Los Angeles county.
We made the claim because this
county is clearly entitled to from
five to six members, according to
estimates of population founded
both upon our school census and
our vote. We are absolutely the
third county in the State in popu
lation, and yet both Sun Jotg and
Sacramento counties, both of
which we outnumber at tlie polls
and in the schoolroom, have from
two to three more members of the
Convention than Los Angeles. The
Alia meets this argument by the
remark that all the counties of the
State are compelled to wait for
justice on tlie census of tlie United
States, Which is taken every ten
years. The Alia further empha
sizes its views by the remark that
San Francisco also suffers the same
injustice of which we complain.
We understand the cuse differently.
As we write the authorities are not
at hand, but we have always be
lieved that the laws of California
provide for a census of tlie State,
to he taken every teu yeurs, and so
arranged that it shall fall exuctly
in the half of tbe decade comprised
in the United States census. Thus,
the last census of the United
States was taken in 1870, aud the
State ceuaus should have been
taken iv 1875. If this had been
done we should have had no com
plaint to make. If our under
standing of the law is tlie correct
one, and there was a criminal neg
lect to take this State census, tbe
Alia will see that we have a per-J
feet right to d.-mand that the Con
vention itself, in filling tlie vacan
cies caused by death, as they are
not bound down to any locality in
their selection, should choose two
citizens of Los Angeles county. It
would he a graceful and just act
and repairs rank injustice.
lo au observer at a distance it
looks very much as if a large hood
lum element were making its ap
pearance lv Massachusetts politics.
While there are many Democrats
in tbe country at large to whom
Ben Butl.-r would be an acceptable
candidate for the Governorship if
Massachusetts, and who would like
to see him elected iv preference to
tlie dy i din the wool Republicans
who usually till tbat office, the
rowdyism which characterized the
Democratic State Convention, tbe
other day, is very offensive to the
mass of tlie party. It was amis
take, too, tv formally nominate
Butler. Tlie Convention should
have contented itself with a dec
laration that it was Inexpedient to
make any nominations, thus leav
ing tlie rank and Bio of the parly to
support Butler If they desired to do
so. The result of the violent tac
tics employed will probably be the
loss to Butler of a large vote which
he Otherwise might have had, and
possibly tlie calling nf another
Convention, That Butler is tlie
choice of a large majority of the
Democracy thero can be no doubt,
a fact which is largely owing to his
plujky, contemptuous an 1 deter
mined opposition to Hayes and to
the fraudulent methods by which
he was placed in the White House.
Notwithstanding the reprehensible
features of IheConvention, it really
looks as if Butler carried tho whip
hand in Massachusetts politics and
was certain of an election.

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 3d, 1878.
We take pleasure in announcing that our direct shipment
of JAPAN TEAS from our agents at YOKOHAMA
are now on hand, ex-steamship "CHINA." These TEAS
(as per our instructions) have been carefully selected in the
most favorably known Tea Districts of Japan, especially
for our trade. The firing was done under the personal
supervision of our agent, who has been instructed to see
that NO COLORING MATTER was used in the prepa
ration of these Teas. No effort has been spared, and we
feel safe in asserting that these are the Finest Teas ever
offered in this market.
We shall receive shipments monthly, and so ensure a
constant supply of Fresh Teas, which in every instance
will be fully up to the excellence of this lot for PURITY
and FLAVOR. In order to protect consumers we have
adopted the annexed
which will be found on all our high-grade Teas. Re
ceiving our Teas direct from the producer, our customers
arc saved the prorlts heretofore made first by the importer
and then by the jobber. We are thus enabled to sell Fine
Teas at prices which have been considered low for an or
dinary article. The public are cordially invited to in
spect this shipment, among which will be found some very
curiously prepared Tea known as the "PIN LEAF," a
Tea which is rarely allowed to leave Japan.
We beg to call the attention of the trade to this invoice,
as liberal inducements will be offered.
Sample Packages Free to Any Address.
