How Bryan does worry the "patri
ots," and yet he Is the "worst defeated
man since General Scott ran."
Czar Reed packed the Pacific railroad
committee for the rank refunding bill.
He took Cooper off the committee.
Cooper was and Is a conservative man,
careful and honest, who had helped ex
pose and defeat the former funding
eteal. Grove Johnson was put on In his
place. Grove wears the railroad col
lar. Reed is an enemy of California.
The "old soldiers" are called upon to
"save the country from Bryan ism" as
they did from "secession" in 1861. They
are told that Bryan will do things inde
pendently of the other nations. Well, If
he can't do things independently of the
other nations, what was the good of
saving the Union In 1861? Such un
mitigated, stupid rot as these McKinley
"patriots" fling around!
Of course if the United States are
not big enough to establish and main
tain a monetary system of their own:
it they are obliged to get Europe's "O.
K." to It before It would amount to
anything at home or abroad, why that
nettles it. But if that is so, what a fool-
Ish thing It was of George Washington
and his co-patriots to try to establish
m tnm and independent country.
j The committee having In charge the
arrangements for the reception ofSpeak
fc' or Reed should not transcend the bounds
I of good manners in their effort to make
• Hon of the billion dollar congressman.
They requested the Sons of the Revolu
tion to parade on that occasion in their
1' official or society rapacity, but the ans
. wer they received, which will be found In
another column, is likely to teach them
jb • lesson in consistency. The
B§£ - tVna of the Revolution is strictly a non-
F- ; yatttlcal and non-rellgioue organization,
,/ *>Bd tha oopamlttee presumed to tha very
border of Impudence in asking Its
members to parade as a body. There is a
wide difference between the citizens ex
tending a welcome to Mr. Reed and so
cieties giving the event official recogni
A DAMNABLE SCHEME
Tbe act of congress passed at the last
session, which provided for a contract
to be made to build a break-water, to be
located either at San Pedro or Santa
Monica, as might be determined by a
commission to be thereafter appointed,
was contained In an appropriation bill.
Appropriations are made once a year, or
cfu m ; congress to carry on the oper
ations oi tho government. Ohce a year
a new river and harbor bill Is passed,
which provides funds for further carry
ing on work being done under the con
tinuing contract system.
Before the 4th of March, 1897, arrives
another river and harbor appropriation
bill will have passed containing provis
ions in reference to the break-water at
San Pedro or Santa Monica.
Senator Frye Is still chairman of the
appropriation committee, and the new
bill must, of necessity, make provisions
for the proposed break-water and as
work was not commenced It must pro
vide for returning to the treasury the
appropriation which was made for com
mencing the work, with a new provision
for expenses during the coming year.
It requires no stretch of imagination
to see what Huntington and Frye will
do about this harbor.
In point of truth the Southern Pacific
company does not want any harbor In
Southern California at all. Its entire
railroad system of four thousand miles,
or more, Is based upon the plan of mov
ing commerce from the bay of San Fran
cisco. From that harbor it has a mono
poly and It has a long haul. A harbor In
Southern California at Santa Monica or
San Pedro, or at any other point, will
be equally disastrous to that company,
but if a harbor must be built somewhere
Mr. Huntington would have it built
where his wharf Is located at Santa
Monica. His first effort will be to defeat
any appropriation ati all at any point In
Southern California.but falling In that he
and Mr. Frye will fix up the new river
and harbor bill so as to make an appro
priation for Santa Monica.
Now, the commission which was ap
pointed by President Cleveland yester
day will have to expedite their work and
make their final report In time for the
government to commence the work be
fore March next, or the appropriation
will revert 1 to the treasury and the mat
ter will stand as though no appropria
tion had been made. No doubt the
Southern Pacific Railway company will
use Its Influence to delay the work of the
commission so as to prevent work being
commenced. The public can readily see
the inwardness of the scheme, and
Southern California can see how It Is
to be deprived of the benefit that would
accrue from the expenditure of several
million dollars on harbor improvement
to say nothing of the Immense advan
tage that would accrue from having a
harbor that would divert millions of
business to It annuallg from other coast
points. There will be more facts con
cerning this most interesting question
to be presented from time to time as
the scheme of the Southern Pacific Rail
way company unfolds.
PULPIT AND POLITICS
Rev. Dr. McLean of the Simpson tab
ernacle church preached last Sunday
night from the text: "Should politics be
discussed In the pulpit?" The Inference
Is that the good doctor thinks In the
affirmative, since his sermon was on po
litical lines. He made a mistake, how
ever. In quoting from Bishop Newman
to Justify turning the pulpit Into a po
litical hustings, for that gentleman Is
not good authority. A few weeks ago
he attacked Mr. Bryan in the most
brutal and unchristian manner, and
employed about such language as the
pot-house politician delights In.
But as to Dr. McLean's question,
"Should politics be discussed in the pul
pit?" If the preacher can divest himself
of all partisan feeling and desire, and
give substantial and satisfying evi
dence that he Is infalllable In Judgment
as between the issues of the several par
ties, then he should preach politics from
his pulpit. The assumption Is, it Is
claimed, indeed, that the minister of
the gospel has been "called" to the
work of leading the spiritual man
from the darkness of evil Into the light
of divine grace, and If it can be shown
that the route lies by the way of a
given political party that party should
be proclaimed as belonging to the
scheme and plan of salvation, but if
that cannot be shown so unmistakably
clear that there would not be the
shadow of a doubt as to the authenticity
of the proclamation designating that
particular party, no doubt more harm
than good would come of It.
Out of their own mouths we are justi
fied in saying that not a few preachers
would like to see Bryan's brow adorned
with the kind of a crown of thorns he
talked about In Chicago, and then again
there are many preachers who believe
they would be Inviting the divine wrath
to come down upon them If they were
to espouse the cause of McKinley. The
fact is, preachers are human beings,
and, generally speaking, they are in
tensely human. They see duty lying
along the path which they think leads
to the victory of the candidate of their
party, and when they undertake to
preach politics from the pulpit they see
only one way for the political redemp
tion of the community, and that way is
the way they believe in. To be
consistent, all members of the church
who are not of the preacher's political
faith should be told that they are trav
eling the left hand road and warned to
get out of It. But how shall the preacher
know for sure that he Is not himself on
the left hand road? If he is Infalliable, of
course that settles It, but if he is not, it
might be well for him to see if there is
not at least a mote—a political mote—
in his own eye.
But on general principles, if Dr. Mc-
Lean will hold his membership close to
the highest standard of ethics he can
think of, he need not lay awake of night
worrying over how they are likely to
vote, if ha can manage to have them

live right seven days and seven nights
of every week, the Eternal Purpose will
relieve him of all responsibility as con
cerning the political conduct of his flock.
But meanwhile he would, no doubt,
score better results on fhe Hne of right
eousness try preparing his people for
"the dreadful day of the Lord," and not
bother himself about the Ins and outs
of practical politics.
THE BUSINESS SITUATION
Everyone of California's staple r~o
ducts, except hops, are advancing in
price under a strong and healthy con
sumption demand, and the same condi
tions are not only being established in
all parts of the country, but the indus
tries are opening their Joore to Idle la
bor. There Is no indication of a boom,
but all lines of business are under the
healthy influence of returning confi
dence, and the feeling is growing that
the country is now entering upon a long
season of commercial and Industrial
prosperity. It Is true that there are a
few clouds still lowering upon the busi
ness situation, and that there are a few
disturbing factors remaining, but aside
from them, and they are wholly political,
the signs of the times may be said to be
auspicious for capital to come from Its
hiding and engage In new business en
terprises and widen and extend the old
It is easy enough l to understand the
cause of this sudden revival of business.
The campaign for the presidency is In
Its last hours, and the people are satis
fled that if Bryan Is not elected the ma
jority against him will be so small that
McKinley would not dare adopt a policy
that would discriminate against the
masses. To be sure, he stands for the
few as against the many, but the moral
force of the millions who will vote for
Bryan would always be too great to be
Ignored. In falling, however, to carry
out Hanna and company's program,
McKinley's administration would be full
of turmoil and tangles and hence the
possibility of his election is the only
thing that is standing in the way of per
fect confidence In the present and future
of business. The danger, though re
mote, that he might not be able to liber
ate himself from the collar of the mono
polies and money syndicates is the one
threatening danger in the channels of
trade and traffic.
But to make the business channels
doubly strong at all points, and give full
assurance to the commercial world that
a sound economic policy will guide the
hand of the Incoming administration,
the vote of the country should over
whelm those who are conspiring to keep
the people's volume of circulating money
medium so limited that Wall street and
Its trust monopoly allies may control Its
going and coming. Business Is reviving
everywhere and values are advancing,
but such conditions at this time merely
reflect the faith of the people In the cer
tainty of the restoration of silver to Its
natural and proper place In the nation's
monetary system, and It may be said
that the development of business activity
into the full measure of the needs of the
people Is mo: r less contingent upon
the opening of t:ie mints In the near fu
ture to the full, free and unlimited coin
age of silver into dollars that shall be the
equal of goUl dollars for every use and
purpose of money. Therefore, let every
one who Is opposed to permitting the
money syndicates to control labor, agri
culture and general trade, resolve that
they will fight harder than ever for the
return of the "dollar of our daddies."
A contributor writ' : Do you know
that, by a remarkable coincidence. Mr.
Bryan comes to us from Lincoln (Neb.)
and Mr. Jones from Washington (Ark.)?
Do you know, that Mr. Bryan was born
in Salem (HI.) and Salem means peace?
Do you know that Mr. McKinley was
born In Niles (O.) and Nlles means tur
bid or black? Do you know that Mr.
Hanna comes from Cleveland (O.) and
Cleve-land signifies to divide the land?
Do you know that Mr. McKinley comes
from Canton (O.) and Canton means
the same as Cleveland* To cantonlze is
to divide the land. Either we have here
an almost incredible series of coinci
dences or an omen. If It Is a warning we
know what to expect if McKinley and
Hanna win. If Bryan Is elected we will
have escaped a great danger.
According to the Chicago Record's
poll Major McKinley will easily defeat
Bryan In the middle west. But the fig
ures determine nothing. Indicate noth
ing. That paper's postal card canvass
was completely frustrated by the labor
organizations, whose members refused
to vote, fearing that it was a scheme'
to secure the names of Bryan voters in
order to coerce them. A little later
the national Democratic committee ad
vised Bryan men not to vote In the Rec
ord's poll. They had found proof that
hundreds of ballots had been sent to
lodging houses and voted by men in the
employ of Mark Hanna. If the bal
lot were trustworthy betting would be
three to one on McKinley. As a matter
of fact bets are even on the result both
In Indiana and in the nation.
The commission provided for by con
gress to locate a site for a deep-water
harbor on the California coast has been
named. Rear Admiral Walker repre
sents the navy, A M. Rogers the coast
geodetic survey, and W. H. Burr, G. S.
Morrison and R. H. Morgan civil life.
The commission is a strong one, and the
result of its work will undoubtedly sat
isfy all in interest. Southern California
is especially Interested In the matter
which the commission has In hand, and
If our people can render any assistance
to Admiral Walker and his board he Is
cordially invited to command their ser
It remained for the Hannacrats, who
lay exclusive claims to flaunt the Amer
ican flag—"your flag, our flag, our coun

the star spangled banner stretched
across Spring street. To escape arrest
and punishment the desecraters of the
flag have at last complied with the law,
and now Old Glory flies for all, and Dem
ocrats doff their hats to It.
It is to be observpcl that in referring
to the present revival of business Re
publican newspapers compare It with
the conditions in 1890. They make no ref
erence to the times when the McKinley
tariff was crushing labor. They do not
want to be reminded of the Homestead
massacre of wage-earners, the Pitts
burg labor riots or the laying off of
200,000 coal miners, all of which occurred

That Bryan and Sewall will carry California is generally conceded, but It
would be folly to be overconfident and to desist from meeting the enemy at every
point. Mark Hanna is flooding the state with misleading documents, the Influ
ence of which must be counteracted; high-salaried orators are stumping the
state In the interests of the plutocracy; their misrepresentations must be coun
tered. The emergency of the situation is set forth in the following communica
tion from Chairman Alford:
We have allied against usdn this contest the combined financial forces of
the Old World and the New. With the money of which they have robbed the
people, they are subsidizing the press, with the view of preventing the educa
tion of the mnsses. They have hired orators and secret agents, whose business
It Is to Intimidate and deceive. They are flooding the country with literature, un
true and misleading. They have powerful allies in the railroad companies and
other great corporations, who are holding over the heads of their employes the
threat that discharge Wtllgollow their advocacy of silver.
To meet these conditions we must have at least enough money to pay the
expenses of speakers and to pay for the printing and distribution of literature.
We need this money at once, and It has been demonstrated that we can only
hope for help from the plain people.—WM. ALFORD, Chairman Democratic
State Central Committee.

as urging nothing In derogation of the

pipe line has been disconnected.

against Hanna for secretary of the

If there is a man on earth whom
Speaker Reed thoroughly dislikes that
man is William McKinley, and If he is
elected and Reed continues speaker, the
life of the man In the White House will
be burdened with many cares.

an outlay of $5000. The power of giving
odds of 2, 3, 4 or 5 to 1 could be con

a taker. Once the bet Is made It then
becomes the business of the goldbug to
procure the name, ward and voting pre

THE COMMERCIAL AGENCIES.
Editor Herald: In your issue today
(October 17), under the heading, •'Com
mercial Conditions," yau say: "Brad
street's tomorrow will say: While the
volume of general trade has not in
creased materially, conditions are fa
vorable to an early improvement. Not
withstanding many interior merchants
prefer to wait until after election before
placing orders, and others are willing to
order SUBJECT TO CANCELATION
SHOULD THE MOVEMENT FOR
FREE COINAGE OF SILVEU BE
I have underscored the words to which
I wish to call attention. Such a condi
tion may be attached to orders from
merchants hoping to Inspire those to
whom they are addressed with greater
zeal against free coinage of silver, or
Bradstreet's may have sent forth this
note of inspiration for the same purpose
But it is only fair to assume that Brad
street's is simply reporting facts and
that the merchants referred to are act
ing in good faith, apprehending unfa
vorable commercial conditions in the
event of the free coinage of silver.
If this be so, then the reiterated asser
tions of the goldbug press and goldbug
orators have impressed the merchants
with apprehensions of unfavorable con
ditions which have no foundation what
ever In the economic forces resulting
from the free coinage of silver. Not one
man in 500 of the intelligent merchants
of this country but will admit that more
money will tend to raise prices and ren
der mercantile conditions more favora
ble. But many of them will, perhaps,
say: "Yes, If the money Is good money—
sound money—lts Increase has that ef
fect; the more good money we have the
better; but If the money Is cheap money,
depreciated money, It will be disastrous
to business; we can't afford to take
chances with such money."
Herein they are grievously In error.
An increase of "sound" money, or of de
preciated money, If a legal tender, will
raise prices and facilitate exchanges
and merchandizing, and of the two a
depreciating money Is more effective In
raising prices and facilitating business
than money which is stationary in value.
If any such money there be. When It
<-eases to depreciate It ceases to stimu
late business, Just the same as any other
money of steady value; and when It
rises in value, as the greenbacks rose
in value after the war to the date of re
sumption, it checks and retards busi
ness and lowers prices, Just as gold
value money has been doing during its
increasing purchasing power.
The increase of "sound" money depre
ciates its value, lowers its purchasing
power and causes prices to rise. A
cheapening of money of whatever kind,
when a legal tender, has the same effect.
There Is no danger to mercantile con
ditions or business prosperity that can
arise from more money or cheaper mno

MR. STEELE'S CANDIDACY.
Editor Herald: Permit me to offer a
few words of endorsement and com
mendation of Mr. W. R. Steele, nominee
of the Democratic and Populist parties
for assemblyman in the Seventy-second
district. I speak from experience for I
have been acquainted with Mr. Steele
for a period of twenty Tears, and have
always found him to be an honorable,
high-minded, upright man, one whose
election will reflect honor upon his dis
trict and thecounty which he will ably
reDresent. Mr. Steele is not a politician,
as that term is usually understood, but
his experience IrT- business, his knowl
edge of men, hiß clear-headedness and
thorough honesty make him more than
a match for the professional politician,
and ail those who seek some advantage
of the public by fraud and trickery. Mr.
Steele Is a safe man and will make a good
legislator. He Is more than a college
bred man, for while he is all that, he Is
' not bound to the conservatism of the
i past but is an Independent thinker and
I a oioaa student of the economic aues
tlons of the day. He is a progressive,
enlightened, trustworthy gentleman.
Withal he is an excellent speaker and a
logical debater; scorning the flowers of
rhetoric or mere verbal ornamentation.
' "* - • — ~v. xniucuiauUll,
he goes straight lijto the merits of a
question and argues it with force, clear
ness and earnestness. Such men as Mr.
Steele are needed In public life, and
especially In our legislature. The state
needs their services more than they do
the positions. The disreputables that
so frequently creep Into the assembly
should be displaced by men of Mr.
Steele's character. They would stand
as a bulwark In defense of better gov
ernment, for an economic administra
tion and for the public good. Voters of
the Seventy-second district, it Is your
duty to see to it that Mr. Steele is elect
ed by an overwhelming majority.

' A CAUTION.
Editor Herald: Might I draw the at
tentlon of the authorities to the habit
of dumping rubbish In the vicinity of
Santa Fe avenue and Tenth street, In
stead of taking it on to the city dump
ing ground? I lately heard of a boy
who died in that locality, and who
suffered great pain from lockjaw (te
tanus), brought on by cuts in his feet
received from broken glass illegally
dumped there, and for which a prosecu
tion should follow.
