LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE.
Jeua H. Battels Anawe - to His Autigoniita—
A Bolan4 for Their Oliver.
[The editor ot the Herald Is orcnurse
not respnnetble ior anything published
in this ooluinn.J
Ebitor Herald: I t iko this oc
oasion to thauk you for your uni
form fairness, previous to tho elec
tion, in not seriously uttaoking any
mau's motives, or character, who
was ou the Workingmen's ticket.
Of course you indulged in a few
puns aud playful joke«, such as
would make tbe campaign a little
lively and interesting.
But this morning a pretended
Workingman, who was ashamed of
his real name (and well he might
be), has beoome grossly personal
on myself aud meanly unjust
towards the great, grand young
party, of whioh I am proud lo be
an active member.
First, tbat resolution of the Sec
ond Ward Clvb —which, by the
way, was passed in a general meet
ing of members of that aud other
clubs—saying that said "Butler
was a man of sound thought and
honest ruling." "As far as that it
coucerned," he says, "I know
nothing about it." Beally tbls is
a green Workingman aud an illog
ical goose, that eats his own greens,
who does not know anything about
said Butler, or about his soundness
of thought, or honest ruling, but
he does know enough to abuse him
as though he were a man-eater, by
saying, he (Butler) said "he would
lsad a mob uf men through China
town or Negro alley, and destroy
men, women and children of tbat
race, regardless of the distinction
nf property, or the expense It
would bring the city of Los Ange
les into." Into, belongs to the ele
gancies of tbe composition. Now,
In answer to the above sentence, I
am In the position uf tbe Irish
man and his father, when the law
yer Inquired tbe reason why his
father waa not in Court, he said he
bad five reasons and the first was
tbat his father was dead; they did
not enquire for the other reasons.
And my first answer to the above
assaertion is, that It is a base cre
ation and fraud,of tho fraud calling
himself a Workingman who wrote
It. Those who know me, know that
I have urged our brethren of the
clubs to wake up and get the de
tired reforms by tbe ballot, so as to
preveat bloody revolutions, which
are always the result of oppression,
where there Is no redress by the
ballet. This Is the "head and front
of my offending." Aud now, Mr.
Editor, who it the "smiling hypo
orite?" It it tbe man who makes
Ibis statement with his own name
attached, and who haa not spoken
lets than Aye hundred times in pub
lio the last year.openly and plainly
before all men; or the villain who
slanders the man wbo has always
been a oourteous debater with
every oomerT And, at to confisca
tion and my own selfish ends, il is
really amusing to those who know
me, and will be still more to to
tome of the richest men In tbis
town, who off-red me a "few hun
dred dollars" to betray a poor man
Into their hands; when I told them
tbat "a few thousand would be no
temptation to me." These are aot
dark sayings, but shall be "ur
nished to the publio, the very mo
ment those wbo are implicated
shall demand them, or dare me to
Tbe Becond effusion of a "Work
ingman" without a name, is prin
cipally answered In tbe foregoiug;
but one poiut speaks of a transpa
rency of a two-faced something,
oalled "Aunt Beckey," that ca i c
from my hall. Well, tbere was
suoh a thing, I believe, but I am
vet responsible for it anymore than
for tbe others whloh were painted
there; and wheu I heard that tlie
friends of "Aunt Beckey" were
threatening to deluge the streets
with blood If it was taken in tbe
procession, I advised and urged the
boys to leave it out, agaiust their
most determined desire to carry it
among tbe others.
As to the insinuation of " politi
cal demagogues and tramps" I pass
tbat over to the poor men of this
otty, and the triumphant party of
the Workingmen, for them to an
swer in any way they ohoose—we
will say, for Instanoe, in the next
election, as they have in this.
And now, Mr. Editor, let me
state my poaition. I bave never
aaked any man to vote in tlie Coun
cil for me to make me ita President
knowing aa I do that I shall be
freer to tuck up both sleeyes to the
elbow and strangle the demon of
corruption outside than In the
Cbalr; and I shall cheerfully ac
quiesce in tbe decision of tbe ma
jority In all things that shall be for
the welfare of the people of tbis
city, men of property, merchants
and all classes of men who labor or
are trying to get labor. But, God
and the people helping this weak
organization of mine, I will burn
np with the lightning of thought
and speech every trick and the
trickster who shall attempt to Im
poverish, to oppress aud deceive
tbls people; and I will place in
''(lie hand of every honest man a
whip," to drive the rascals from
tbeir seoret holes.
As this is growing too lengthy, I
will olose with thanking you for
tbe courtesy of Inserting this an
swer, and I shili be but too glad to
meet any of these nondescripts io
a fair field and a fair fight in per
sou in vindication of myself, or for
the honor of the vigorous party to
which I belong.
