ABOUT THE CITY.
Political Discussions Upon
HOW THE WAGERS WERE MADE.
The Southern Pacific Company Asks
for Additional Privileges From
the City Council.
The excitement over politics, National
and local, reached high water-mark yes
terday, completely engrossing the atten
tion of the public and utterly demoral
izing business. The streets were more
crowded than they have been at any
time since the day of the Odd Fellows
parade. The long strain is becoming
wearisome to every one, and the only
sentiment which seemed to meet with
unanimous approval from both sides was
the one of "Think Heaven, it will soon
In the open squares, along the edge of
the sidewalks, and in the doorways of
public buildings voters were soon every
where gathered in little knots discussing
the issues of the campaign. In a slow
stroll of a few blocks one could hear the
pertinent points of the policy of both par
ties pretty well ventilated. At one cor
ner it would be the ruin of the navy by
Republicans and its resuscitation by the
Democracy. Further along some Repub
lican would be found trying to demon
strate the fact that England would own
this country a year or two after the
war tax was cut down. Here would be
heard a lively discussion as to how the
tariff could benefit the workingman, who
bad nothing to sell save his unprotected
labor, and there some mention of the
Murchison fake brought out sneers and
The man who wanted to bet but could
find no takers was omnipresent, and his
political complexion was, with a few rare
exceptions, Democratic. For a half an
hour a man stood in front of the Court
House with his hands full of gold offering
$500 straight on the Democratic candidate.
The $300 bet mentioned in the Herald
for the last two days was taken yester
day by another Democrat who had
plunged heavily and wanted to hedge.
D. M. Ireland came into the Herald
office during the day and offered to put
up $400 on Cleveland and $120 on this
State, that it will go Democratic. Later
in tho day he found a victim and the
money was paid down over the counter
of the California Bank. A number of
offers of money in sums varying from
$100 to $500 were made at the Herald
office and the County Central Committee
rooms during the day. At the present
writing there are still recorded at this
office the names of men who have sums
varying from $100 to $500, which they
would like to risk on the Democratic
Yesterday's Tribune contained apropos
of betting, the statement that Ed. tier
main, the brother of the Chairman of the
the County Central Committee, was ask
ing odds of two to one to bet on Califor
nia going Democratic. Mr. Germain
says this is a distortion of the truth. He
was among a crowd of boastful Republi
cans who declared that they were quite
willing to bet 5 to 1 that the
State would go for Harrison. He replied
that they needn't make it any higher
than 2 to 1 and he would put up all the
money they wanted. It stands to reason
that no man will bet even when he can
get odds, and this is the explanation of
Among the odd bets recorded thus far
comes one from Uncle Billy Clayton, who
used to serve as custodian of the city's
vags. and drunks. It is a hand organ
bet with Tom Keefe. If Cleveland is
elected Uncle Billy will carry and grind,
at a set time, a hand organ from the
Pico House to the corner of Main and
Fourth and back again by way
of Spring street, taking up a
collection en route for the Orphans'
Home. The forfeit in case of failure to
comply with the contract will be $100 for
A formal ballot was taken by the boys
at the High School yesterday afternoon,
which is supposed by the canvass which
was made beforehand to have gone
Democratic. The ballots were not
counted, as the balloting broke up in a
row and the box was stolen by the Re
A straw ballot in the upper tank of the
County Jail gave a small Republican
majority for Harrison and free whisky.
HOW THE BETTING STANDS.
The following bulletins were tele
graphed to this city last night, as hav
ing been tbe ruling figures in the New
York poolrooms at the close of the day.
Even money for the general result,
with the offers in favor of Cleveland.
One hundred to CO that Hill carries
One hundred to 80 that Cleveland car

One hundred to 00 that Cleveland car

The S). P. It. It. Co. Dealren I'urtber
While the matter of the right of way of
the Southern Pacific Railroad Company
over streets from San Pedro street to
Alameda, did not come up in the City
Council yesterday, a petition to amend
the franchise asked for was filed by tbe
Railroad Company. The Southern Paci
fic Railroad Company askes for a fran
chise to cross Clement street., Pine
street, Peru street, Paloma street, Wolf
skin street, Tennessee street and Little
Rock avenue. Petitioners ask permis
sion to have their franchise amended so
as to allow them to construct a track
from the intersection of Alameda street
al the point where the right of way ends,
to the depot at Seventh street. The
Company also desires permission to con
struct a second track on Alameda street
south as far as the track goes on that street.
The Company promises to remove its
line from San Pedro streot and to remove
the lumber yards to a point in the vicin
ity of Pine street. It also agrees to
grade Alameda street, between Pine
street and the new depot and to keep the
street in order.
Mr. G. J. Griffith. across whose prop
erty the property owners state they
would rather have the line constructed,
forwarded to Mr. Humphreys an offer of
three routes, designated on a map. The
first route is twenty-five feet wide and
nearly one mile long, which is offered for
$25,000. The second route is fifty feet
wide and is offered for $15,000, and the
third route, also fifty feet wide, is offered
for $10,000. These routes are offered on
the condition that the track be removed
from San Pedro street, and that new
streets may be opened across the right of
way, and that a freight and passenger
depot be erected in ninety days on the
Briswalter estate and an agent be kept
The petition together with Mr. Grif
fith's propositions was referred to the
Board of Public Works, which will act
on the same on Saturday next.
Hallen and Hart In Their New
■'lay "Later On."
Hallen and Hart with their company
of artists re-appeared at the Grand Opera
House last night in their new variety
melange entitled Later On. The play is
a decided improvement on the former
potpouri of a year ago. Miss Georgie
Parker who quite divided the honors
with Roland Reed when she appeared
with him here in the "Dutch girl busi
ness" is in the leading role for the ladies
in Later On." She caught on" with
the audience last night again to per
fection. The other girls in the play are
very presentable both in appearance
and as artists. Mr. Bernard Dyllyn is
the one member of the company who
has a fine voice. His singing was greatly
enjoyed. The role of "Sneriff Clutch"
gives Mr. John T. Kelly a fine oppor
tunity to do some clever Irish business.
And the two stars, especially where they
appear in the grossly burlesque roles of
Sprigs of English nobility, do a good
deal of clever acting. They ought to be
called Sackville West and "Murchison."
The play runs all the week.
Four wild snot*.
At 1 o'clock last night a shooting
scrape took place on Commercial street,
between Union and Los Angeles, which
fortunately terminated in no injury to
any one. For some reason the witnesses
would not make known the design of the
row. Fred McCann, a haah-sliuger in
Duggan's restaurant, said he knew
something about it, but would
not tell it now. From others standing
by it was learned that the man who fired
the shots was talking to another in front
of the restaurant, and getting into a dis
pute one struck the other. This one,
who is a Mexican, named F. C. Montijo,
residing on Macy street pulled a
gun and fired at his assailant
who ran away and escaped. Hearing
the shot, Officer J. E. Duignan ran to the'
spot and pinioned Monitijo, drawing his
arms back. In his right hand was the
pistol which was discharged, ti>> ball
passing through the overcoat and
undercoat of Duignan. The officer
then threw Montijo to the ground and
then two more shots were fired. The
Mexican was drunk and probably did not
intend to discharge his pistol, after the
first time. One of the stray balls grazed
Louis Stone, the special officer's leg. and
set him dancing. Another grazed the
wrist of McCann, which may account for
his silence. He may have been too
frightened to recover his voice for a
Montijo was taken to the station and
locked up. He was followed by several
of his compatriots, who wished to bail
him out. Montijo seemed to be wanted
for use at the polls to-day.
Petitions as follows were received by
the Council yesterday, and were referred
to the proper committees: From M, £.

San Pedro Democrats.
A rousing Democratic rally was held
last night at San Pedro. The Repub
licans paraded, but despite this fact the
crowd around the Democratic stand was
twice as large as that about the Repub
lican platform. Mr. J. H. Dodeon, the
Chairman, called the meeting to order
and after a brief speech introduced
Major Arbuckle, who lor two hours en
tertained the audience, and judging from
the enthusiasm that prevailed the Dem
ocratic ticket will have a large majority
in this precinct. It was a fitting close to
to the campaign, and the meeting ad
journed with three cheers for the ticket
which were given with a good will.
Ttae Republican Papers on Harrl«
Los Anoei.es, November 8, ISBB.—The
Associated Press sends us the following
extracts which will appear in the leading
Republican papers of this morning ac
counting for the defeat of Harrison and
New York, November B.—The Tri
bune says: We have receiver* sufficient
results from the pivotal States to show
that the Republican party has suffered a
signal defeat. It is profitless, after the
fact, to grieve over the mistakes of a cam
paign. Yet when a party has committed
grave errors they ought to be pointed
out to serve as a warning and a lesson in
the future. The first great crime com
mitted by the Republican party was in
nominating as its standard-bearer a
gentleman who was peculiarly objection
able to the labor element of his own
State, and consequently .to workingmen
all over the Union. It was also warned
in time that Harrison's record on the
Chinese question would lose us the vote
of California, Nevada, and perhaps ail
the Pacific Coast States. The event has
proven that Mr. De Young, a San Fran
cisco journalist of prominence, knew
what he was talking about when he
warned the leaders of the Chicago Con
vention that Harrison could not carry
the Pacific Coast States because of his
pro-Chinese record. Thus has the great
Republican party been again led to the
slaughter by the lack of political acumen
of the men who had it in their power at
the proper time to direct it to a signal
and overwhelming victory.
Chicago, November B:—The Inter-
Ocean: The defeat of the Republican
party is due, first and foremost, to the
weakness and vulnerability, in essential
points, of the candidates given to 11 by
the National Convention. Next to the
inconsistency of a platform that was con
strued as "free whisky" in one part and
prohibition in another, the selection as
head of the ticket of a man who
had been notoriously unfriendly to
the labor organizations of his
own State, and who was strongly on
record as a pro-Chinese United States
Senator, was the blunder of accepting a
plan of campaign from the man whose
smirched character led us to inglorious
defeat in 1884. The war tariff acted as a
Republican boomerang, and was an ele
ment of positive weakness in the strong
Republican Western States. What the
Republican party wants in its leaders is
more brains and less chicane.
Cincinnati, November B.—The Com
mercial Gazette is indignant. It says:
By mismanagement of the campaign the
fatal errors of the National Convention
were continued and accentuated. Quay
might as well have tried to colonize
South Carolina against Cleveland as
New York, and if he had been anything
but an adept in the peculiar politics of
Philadelphia, he would have known so.
Our magnificent organization has been
handicapped by incapacity in its direc
tion from top to bottom. It has been
outgeneraled and outwitted at every
point, and has suffered a defeat which is
more to be regretted from the fact that
victory was clearly ours if we had not
been led by imbeciles.
San Fkancisco, November 8. —The
Chronicle: There seems, at this writing,
not the slightest hope for our ticket. We
told the Convention managers at Chicago
*c couid wii wrtn any
Harrison. They thought they knew bet
ter, and forced him on the party. They
can now see what a pretty mess they
have made of it. It was a hard task for
us to stand up during the campaign
against what we had sincerely said about
Harrison. But whilst we were talking the
loudest and working the hardest for the
ticket, we bet as we.thought and have
therefore made money on the election.
It is to be hoped that our advice will be
heeded at the next National Republican
Sacramento, November 8. — Record-
Union : The pro-Chinese record of Har
sion and such speeches as Tom Reed
and Bill Williams made in this State did
the business. The Bcoundrels who
hatched out the Murchison letter lost us
thousands of votes by that miserable and
transparent fake. Everywhere our party
has been made the victim of imbecility,
chicanery and bold-faced lying on the
part of orators find leaders, and the peo
ple have spewed us out.
Los Anoki.es, November 8. —The
Times: We are defeated on account of
the treachery of the Trombone and its
cavalier treatment of the Murchison let
ter. If that letter had been handled in
the interest of the party as the Timet
handled it, it would have secured us the
ignorant Irish vote and enabled us to
carry every doubtful State. That scoun
drelly traitor, the Trombone, is responsi
ble for the defeat of Harrison.
Los Angeles, November B.—The Tri
bune: What else could we expect but
defeat from the wretched manner in
which the campaign was carried oat ?
The Tribune warned the party against
relying on the Murchison letter and the
Times. We were on the high road to
victory on the tariff issue, when the Mur
chison letter was sprung upon the coun
try, and after that the tariff question was
ignored and the campaign was fought out
upon a forgery. The Los Angeles Times
is responsible for the re-election of
Cleveland. That paper is what we have
always known it to be, an enemy in dis
guise—a wolf in sheep's clothing.
Tnc Democratic Party at Santa Ana.
The Democracy of Santa Ana and vi
cinity closed the campaign Saturday
with a grand rally, torchlight procession
and meeting. The procession was a
splendid pageant,and one of the most im
posing ever seen in that city. The meet
ing waß addressed by Hon. R. F. Del
Vallo and Lieutenant Governor White,
who made eloquent and taking speeches,
and carried the vast assemblage with .
them in bursting enthusiasm to the end.
Our reporter at Santa Ana has sent us
synopses of the addresses, but his letter
came too late to be available for this is- -
sue. The Santa Ana Democracy are
greatly elated over the fine demonstra
tion with which they wound up the
The Independent Colored League met
in Justice Taney's Court-room—Thomas
Pearsons in the chair, W. H. Jukes,
Secretary. The first business was the
consideration of the action of one of its
members, R. 11. Slayton, who was
unanimously expelled. A move was
made to extend a vote of thanks to the
officers of the League for their goad and
great work up to the eve of election,
after which the meeting adjourned.
