IN THE PEOPLE'S HANDS.
A correspondent suggests that California
send a number of able men to Washington
to oppose the Central Pacific refunding
bill. The Central Pacific Company, be
says, is represented in the lobby and there
is danger that Congress may be induced
to grant the extension asked for. Without
doubt the attendance of representative
men would have some influence in Con
gress, provided that they could show that
they had at their back a predominant
proportion of the people. Put unless
there is a popular demonstration against
the proposed extension bill we apprehend
that a few or any number of merely good
talkers would not change a vote in either
House of Congress. The men who could
speak most effectively against the pro
posed extension bill are men who would
go to Washington in obedience to a popu
lar demand at their own expense.
TO BE PROSECUTED.
A Chinaman was arrested one day last
week for some trifling offense and upon
his person were found two registration
papers, each bearing his photograph and
each made out in a different name. The
coolie had taken the precaution to register
before different deputies. Although he had
to commit perjury to take out two regis
tration papers he did not realize that he
had done wrong. A gooa many coolios, he
said, had done the same thing. The inci
dent should serve to open the eyes of East
ern officials to the difficulty of dealing with
Chinese. A class of residents that have
no conception of the crime of perjury must
be dealt with accordingly. If they are
allowed the degree of credibility which
may safely be awarded to persons of our
own race and religion they will defeat
utmost any law drawn to restrain them.
If they are detected in violating the law
the only regret they have is that they will
not be able to accomplish their purpose.
They are neither conscious of crime nor of
disgrace. In their own country, and sub
ject to the restraints of their own religion,
they may be more conscientious. Put in
this country their cunning is not fettered
by scruples. Our Eastern friends often
ask why we should make different laws
for the Chinese than we make for other
residents. The reason is that Chinese do
not accept laws in good faith. We found
when the restriction act was in operation
that it was evaded by wholesale perjury.
After several years of experiment we
reached the conclusion that exclusion was
the only method by which immigration
could be prevented. An exclusion act was
passed in 1888 which worked pretty well.
The treaty before the Senate practically
abolishes the exclusion act. it provides
ways and means by which Chinese may
enter under other terms than are provided
in the act. A judicial decision has relieved
Chinese laborers masquerading as mer
chants from the necessity of proving their
calling by the only means which can be
considered conclusive. The provision in
the treaty which permits Chinese laborers
to enter the country on pretense ol passing
through it affords another opportunity for
perjury. Under the registration act there
will doubtless be some frauds committed,
but there is no better way to regulate the
Chinese now in the country unless we
resort to deportation. But the pending
treaty, if adopted, will reopen the whole
FOREIGN BUSINESS FAILURES.
It appears from cable dispatches from
Europe that the del. of the American
Congress to repeal the McKinley tariff has
bad a bad effect in certain branches of
business. The failure of an English firm
of worsted spinners is announced, with
liabilities amounting to 51.0C0.000, and is
attributed to the dullness of trade. The
McKinley bill put a rate of duty on
worsted goods which enabled American
manufacturers to do much of the work in
this country which has been done in Eng
land and other European countries, and
consequently the present Congress, by de
laying to repeal tbe McKinley tariff, may
be held to a certain responsibility for this
reported failure. It seems as if American
statesmen who find a law in operation
that builds up certain home industries,
without inflicting injury upon other home
industries, would hesitate to repeal such
laws. An American Congress is presumed
to legislate for the good of the American
people. But a law can hardly be said to
be for the good of our people which builds
up foreign industries at the expense of
THE LAW OF SUCCESSION TAXES.
The question i f the validity of the suc
cession tax iv Massachusetts has recently
been argued before the Supreme Court of
that State. The collateral inheritance tax
law require*- that 5 per cent should be paid
into the State treasury. The question
raised iv this instance has more than a
local hearing. The constitution of Massa
chusetts confines the taxing power to "pro
portionate and reasonable assessments" on
property and persons, goods, wares, mer
chandise and commodities. The conten
tion . - that, as the right of succession is the
common right of ail mankind, there is no
property or right that can be taxed.
The opposite view is that the succession i
to property is not a natural right, but an
artificial one created by law. Dead men
cannot exercise any control over property
through any natural right that survives.
The State gives heirs to estates all the
right* of succession that they possess.
Having created the right, it could ex
tinguish it cr modify it at auy time. The
State is always competent to interpose and
decide whether there shall be any succes
sion and in what manner it shall be
accomplished. It does exercise this right
in every part of the Union. It takes the
precedence as a legatee. In cases where
no heirs claim property it escheats to the
State as the final legatee. If the State did
not undertake this control, defining who
are in the line of succession and who are
not, there would be an endless strife. The
strongest would get the property and the |
weakest would be robbed. The State j
created an artificial power by which wills
can be made, and provides means for de
fending them when they have been care
fully made. In this view there is no
natural right of succession, although there
are the precedents reaching back to an
tiquity for some kind of succession. Bat
these, in most instances, have been created
by law. The State renders a service in
regulating succession. If it were a natural i
right why should the State interfere i
The policy of a succession or inheritance
tax is now finding much favor in many of
the older State. . New York has a statu
tory provision of this kind. Ohio has also
declared for such a law. It is probable
that a majority of the States will adopt a
similar provision. The validity of the tax
will probably be questioned in more than
one State. If the doctrine prevails tliat
succession is not a natural right, but a
privilege, the right to impose a succession
tax would rest upon a solid basis.
THE GOULD EXODUS.
The several memoers of the Gould fam
ily have made affidavit that they are no
longer residents of Xew York. The ob
ject of declaration is to evade the payment
of taxes. The late Jay Gould left the fam
ily 812,000,000 each, ot 860,000.000 in all.
and Xew York assessed th.< estate at
510.000.000. There is probably some real
property to be added to this appraisement
of personal property, but it Is known that
the late Jay Gould's property was mostly
of the class that comes under the head of
personal property. It seems, therefore,
that Mr. Gould objects to an assessment
hat covers about one-sixth of bis inherited
Mr. George Gould is apparently a fair
illustration of a class of men who are mak
ing much trouble for the United States
Government. Men of moderate means
object to paying taxes that men of large
means refuse to pay. As a means of get
ting even the mass of voters who are
taxed on every dollar they possess will be
tempted to show ingenuity in devising
class taxes which affect only the rich. The
principle of equal taxation is the basis of
a right to tax at all, but nominal equal
taxation should be made equal in fact. If
a very rich man can evade a .durable
proportion of his share the small taxpayer
has to pay a higher rate. There la no es
cape from this conclusion.
THE TRADE IN EGGS.
Farmers often aay that a protective pol
icy does them no good. They say that the
things they have to .ell are not increased
in price by duties, while in many cases the
things they have to buy are higher in con
sequence of duties. The American Pro
tective League has compiled statistics
showing the effects of protection upon
eggs. During the year ending Juno "0,
18S9, the imports of eggs amounted to 15.
--918,8' 9 dozen, valued at 52.418.976. Eggs
were imported into Maine, Massachusetts,
New York, Michigan and Vermont in
large quantities. Other States, more dis
tant from the point of exportation, im
ported endless quantities. San Francisco
is down for 126,300 dozen in that year.
Taking a period from 1883 to 1889 the im
ports varied but little. With the excep
tion of a single year the value of imported
eggs exceeded (2.000,000. In 1890 a duty of
Scents per dozen was laid on eggs, taking
effect in October of that year. The im
ports for 1891 fell to 8,233,643 dozen in
number and 81,185.595 in value. In 1892
the importations were 4.188,492 dnz-n in
number and 8522,240 in value. In 1893 the
imports were 3,295,842 dozen, valued at
302,617. The farmers of the United States
have very nearly supplied the home mar
ket, receiving last year more than B'-, 000,
--000 for eggs which in 1889 was sent
THEY DO THINGS BETTER IN
Between the instinct which caused a
large audience to assemble in this city to
see a fight between a man and a lion and
that which brought together a much larger
audienca iv Madrid to witness a fight be
tween a man and a bull there is not much
difference. In both cases a desire for the
brutal excitement engendered by the peril
of human life was the impelling principle.
In this city the audience was disgusted at
the precautions taken to secure the human
contestant from harm, but iv Madrid the
bull entered tbe ring io full possession of
all his powers. In the Spanish city the
audience certainly was not disappointed.
They must have left the scene with the
feeling thai they had received the full
value of their money.
EVEN IN BOSTON.
Boston is about the last city in the Union
from which intelligence might be expected
of a duel to determine which of the princi
pals should hold the highest place in a
lady's affections. Some months since there
was a report from a Western city that two
young athletes bad pommeled each other
in a hall hired lor the purpose with the
avowed understanding that the object of
their mutual affection should marry the
successful pugilist. But this was in the
West. No one dreamed that a similar
affair would ever take place in Boston.
The natural conclusion is that Boston,
having reached the apex of refinement aDd
finding it impossible to standstill, has, as a
Westerner would say, entered upon the

THE SLOW TRAINS.
Cause of Changes in the
Indications of Renewed Life in the
Proposition to Build the San

There have been frequent inquiries
made lately, and in fact for some time
past, why certain changes in time had
been made in the Southern Pacific, partic
ularly between this city and Sacramento,
by which much slower time is made than
For instance, the second-class overland
train, which leaves here for the East at
7a. M., formerly made the distance be
tween the two places in three hours and
forty-five minutes, while now it requires a
much longer time. Tnis is also true of the
Oregon overland train coming this way.
The cause of tbe change Is simple, and is
due to the same source in both cases.
Last summer when a change was made in
the number of trains which the road had
In service it involved the dropping of two
local trains between this city and Sacra
mento. Since that time the Oregon over
land coming this way and the second-class
overland going East have been compelled
to do the local work, whereas they both
formerly rati through with- but few stops.
S. li. L«n»gan, until recently superin
tendent of the Twelfth-street electric road
in Oakland, has been appointed superin
tendent ol the ban Francisco and San
Mateo Railway, and many other changes
are being, made in the force.
The Pullman Company up to the be
ginning of the strike among its employes
had a payroll of $7000 a day, and since the
completion of its shops in ISBI it bas paid
out over 530,000,000.
it is believed by those who have been
watching the current of events closely
that a determined effort will soon be made
to build the San Joaquin road. The pre
vious attempt was not carried out to a
logical conclusion for the reason that the
financial outlook wa* threatening, But in
the meantime the arguments which show
the need of competition have been thor
oughly digested by many who at one time
believed that the breaking down of the
Trauscont tiental Association was what
was principally necessary. The manipu
lation of local rates and through rates by
the Southern Pacific Company since the
Transcontinental Association was broken
up has demonstrated to many more forci
bly than before that the rail lines are
bound to break down all sea competition
and to leave San Francisco at the far end
of a long haul.
