A HOPE OF RELIEF.
It is impossible to overestimate the
v*lue as an element of peace of thu order |
of District Attorney Denis enforcing j
against the railroad companies the law \
against obstructing the mails which had j
been directed against the strikers only.
It looked for a time as if all the forces of
Government were directed against labor
organizations. An Oakland dispatch now
gays that union men seem to feel that
after all the administrators of the liw are
not all committed to the side of the rail
road companies. Tne country has seen
the Senate of the United States do the
bidding of one trust and the Department
of Justice do the bidding of another.
Millionaire Pullman refuses to arbitrate
a dispute with his employes and all the
railroad corporations of the country come
to his rescue. And then the Gavernment,
through the Department of Justice,
promulgated the law which the railroad
corporations thought would best serve
their purpose. The order from District
Attorney Denis is the one blast that has
been sounded on behalf of the people.
SUBMISSION TO LAW.
It Is eminently proper for clergymen to
counsel submission to law. It is doubtful,
however, if the text preached from on Sun
day—"He that resisteth the power resist
eth the ordinances of God"— is the best i
kind of oil to pour on troubled waters, j
The text is too far-reaching to appjy to j
uuch disputes as that now causing the j
march of soldiers in different parts of the !
country. To assume that al! laws that i
find a place on Btatuie- books are
ordinances of God is to seat despots on an j
impregnable throne. When a Govern- j
ment eoes wrong it should be brought j
round lo the right. Under a republican j
form of government this may be done j
without bloodshed. Under other forms i«f j
government the only cheek upon tyranny I
Is to resist the law. But the clergyman j
who teaches that resistance to the powers :
be is resistance to the divine will \
weakens the reverence men still retain for !
the law as laid down in the Gospel. The ■,
well-meaninz clergyman who sought in- '
BDiration from the text quoted did not j
himself accept it for all the meaning its j
•words convey. He advises the "instant
submission to just authnritv." If the
text is to be the rule of action how are |
men to distinguish between just and un- !
just authority? If resistance to tMo dow
ers tnat be is resistance to the ordinances j
of God wnere is t tie limit to submission? j
The preacher say?, "One of the startling
dangers of the times is found in the fact
that almost all the great papers in the
State are pattiug defiance of law upon the
hack." The preacher has been too busy
with the Eoistle to the Romans to read the |
papers ot the Stale. Without a single ex- i
ceniion all have counseled moderation and
restraint from violence. They have urged j
upon the strikers the obvious fact that if
tiipy could not win without violence they j
could not win at all. The apceal to Horace \
Greeiey to descend in spirit aud to take j
possession of some of our editorial chairs j
does not seem exaoUy apropos. No cdi- I
tor in the United States has been more
emphatic than Mr. Greeiey in the declara
tion that resistance to the powers was not
resistance to the divine law. In fact Mr.
Greeiey, wi:h other anti-slavery leaders,
invoked the higher law in justification of
resistance to the powers that Le.
The objection to international arbitra
tion, that there ia no power to enforce it,
does not apply to arbitraticn within h j
gingle Government. It is as competent for
the law-making power to create a board of
arbitrators and enforce its decisions as to
perform any ot.*ier act of legislation. The
necessity for some such tribunal is impera
tive. As matters now stand Mr. I)ebs and
his asßociates on one side and the railroad
managers on the other have the power to
throw the whole country into turmoil. If
these chiefs of opposing interests cannot
or will not agree upon terms of peace the
whole nation is to suffer. Mr. Pullman
says he has nothing to arbitrate; Mr.
Ilnntington, too, says he has nothing to
arbitrate. But if there, were a lawfully
credited board of arbitration these two
men would find themselves under the
painful necessity of submitting to its de
cree!". Without some lawful means of set
tling difficulties the United States may
some time find Itself in danger of falling
into the condition of the states of Central
America where one ambitious chief after
another assumes the role of dictator. The
most ardent friend of lnbor organizations
will admit that the power vested in their
several orders and federations of orders
m ay be abused. With a national board of
arbitration the temptation to an abuse of
power would be decreased.
General Miles is reported as saying that
tin 1 President's proclamation amountß to
martial law. It Is only in a limited respect
that it does. The military is relieved from
the observance of some of the processes
by which i eace and order are maintained
!>y the civil authorities. The fact of un
lawful assemblages is admitted, and such
use of force as may be necessary to dis
perse them is authorized. There has
as yet been no intimation that the au
thority of State courts over persons who
may be arrested in the performance ot
unlawful acts is suspended. There Is no
doubt of the purpose of the State courts to
visit punishment on the offenders. A rioter
could not have a jury less inclined to mercy
than one composed of striker?. The abso
lute necessity of abstaining frcm violence
has been persistently asserted. President
Debs has said that if the cause could not
be won by peaceful methods it could not
be won at all. The President, therefore,
lias wisely refrained from proclaiming a
condition of things that does not exist.
The army is doing what policemen would
do if they had the power. The military is
Kiven authority to kill if need be, but
there 19 no authority given to try offenders
by military instead of civil courts.
SAN PEDRO OR SANTA MONICA.
The Senate Committee on Commerce
will take action within a day or two, pos
sibly to-day, on the question of the deep
water harbor of Southern California.
T! ere is some talk about a decision it:
favor of Santa Monica. Of course, the
action of the committee will not be con
clusive, bus it will have weight with the
Seuate. It seems hardly possible that the
committee sbuuld vote for Santa Monica
in face of the facts. The selfish manner I
ia which Huntington has carried on his
campaign in person within the walls of
'.he Capitol should at least prejudice his
case with the committee. The iuiprove
ment proposed Is assumed to be for the
benefit of comraercp and of the people of |
Southern California. There is probably
not a member of the Senate committee or
of the Seriate who imagines that C. P.
Huntingtoc is actuated by any such con
sideration in bis fie n t for Santa Monica.
Two board 3of United States engineers,
ou their own expert investigation, and the j
testimony of numerous seafaring men and ;
others interested in locating the deep- !
water harbor of Los Angeles in the best
place fnr the public welfare, have reported
in favor of San Pedro. The Legislature
of California, the Chamber of Commerce
of Los Angeles and commercial bodies
throughout the Southwest have memorial
ized Congress to tlie same purpose. There
is nothing against the choice of San Pedro
except Mr. Huntington and his aiders and J
abettors. Mr. Huntington himself was ia !
favnr of San Pedro until the Los Aneeles !
Terminal Kailroad also obtained a footing
there; then he was ready to abandon all
his interests at that point, including a line
from Los Anceles and water frontage, and
transfer them to Santa Monica, where he
could have a monopoly.
Huntington has purchased whatever
property ia necessary to control all ap
proaches to Santa Monica. lie has built
a wharf nearly a mile long to reach deep
water, and now he wants the Government to
expend $4,000,000 on a breakwater to guard
his wharf from the surges of the Pacific
and give him a monopoly of the termi
nal business for the Southwest. Senator
Frye has been made to see tbo proposition
with Hnntiueton's eyes and has dorm
everything in his power to spread the light
which he has thus received.
Should the Senate committee so far ig
nore the public interest as to assent to
Mr. Huntington's scheme there is still
a chance for the Senate to beat his game.
It will be an outrage on commerce and the
welfare of the people should Santa Mon
ica receive the appropriation which should
go to San Pedro.
THE REAL CAUSE OF THE TIE-UP
The salient fact of the railroad contro
versy in California is tbat the real cause
of the tle-uD is the persistence of the South
ern Pacific Company in running Pullman
cars. To neree not to run Pullman cars on
part of the Southern Pacific pysteni on
wnich Pullman cars are not usually run is
no concession at all. Mr. Towns lias fre
quently stated that the company was ready
to operate all trains over its entire system,
but he adds that if it cannot move Pull
man cars on trains upon which Pullman
car? are run it will not run such trains at
all. It is of course against the use of Pull
man cars where they have ordinarily been
used that the strike is directed. On this
Doint the Southern Pacific makes no con
cession. It will run Pullman cars on its
overland trains or will run no overland
trains. It is a mere jingle of words to say
that it is ready to run trains without Pull
mans which have never run Pulimans.
The order of Judge Ross requiring the
j Southern Pacific to run such trains as it
can throws a little hoie udou the situa
. tion. It indicates at least that there isone
I court in the country that does not read law
by aid of corporation spectacles. The or
-1 ders issued through the Attorney-General's
! office hrtve made the United States conrts
i the means of fighting the- Pullman Com
i pany's battles. Federal troops now are
I marching through several States to put
flown rims that have found their oppor
| tutiity for resistance to the exactions of
; the Pullman Car Company. Tho Ameri
| can Railway Union bus counseled peace-
E able measures, but it has not in all cases
j been able to restrain the criminal element
| which shows itself in all popular disturb
THE TRANSVAAL MINES.
There is no check to the output of the
gold iniDes in the Transvaal country. The
April yield of the Johannesburg mines was
108,74"> ounces, worth, at the low prire of
SIT at the mine, $L',£GO,OOO, and the yield
for the first four months of the year was
! 035,000 ounces, worth nearly $11, 000,000.
' As the output increases monthly, thin goes
to show that the yield for the year will
come to the estimate of 540.000.000.
New mines are being opened continu
ally. A new "reef," as it is called, lias
been found a few miles west of the 'Wit
watersrand, in which the ore yields some
thing like an average if an ounce to the
ton. Here, as at Witwatersrand. the ore
lies in a conglomerate between two sand
stone walls. Jt is treated in stampmilis
and amalgamating pans. New strikes are

reported from various poiuts all the way
to the Zambesi, and tuough most of these
will turn out to be miners' yarns, there is
no reason why some of them should out
lie followed by the opening of many mines.
At one place a wide vein of quartz has
been exposed, from which specimens have
been taken assaying twenty-five penny
weights. The mineral seems to be dis

At the present time the chief difficulty
with :he new camp is transportation.
Everything has to be hauled by ox teams,
an(J, of course, prices are exorbitant.
The Government controls the transporta
tion business, and San Francisco dynamite
which can be laid down at §10 15 a case is
selling at 523 75. and cannot be had for
less. Two lines of railroad are heading
for Johannesburg. One is an English line
which starts from Natal, and the other a
Dutch-Portuguese line which strikes the
ssa at Delagoa Bay. Both are expected to
reach Johannesburg wilhin a year. The
Delagoa line is the shortest, and when it is
opened it Is expected that It will carry the
bulk of the heavy freieht to the mines.
It is feared by the miners that the English
will get possession of it in order to protect
tlia colonial lines which run south; but
between the Dutch of the Transvaal and
the English not the best feeling prevails.
The world is not paying to the African
discoveries as much attention as they de
serve. The totaJ world's production of
gold in 1893 was about $130,000,000, ana on
the strength of this production the gold
value of the sliver dollar declined below 80
cents. Now comes a new gold field which
promises to add over one-third to the
annual supply of gold, while the produc
tion of silver, in consequence of the decline
in its value, is steadily falling off. In
Colorado, for Instance, which hns been a
leading silver Slate, the metals are chang
ing places in regard to production; the
product of gold in 1894 will exceed the
product of silver by as lar^e a sum as the
product of silver used to exceed the
product of gold. It would seem inevitable
that this change of place must b« followed
by a reaction in trie decline in the market
price of silver, which was nothing more
than an advance in the price of gold, and
that the tendency of silver to accumulate
in mints and treasuries must be checked.
The practical effect would be to impart
mobility to silver as an instrument of ex
change, and so to Increase the current
volume of circulating money; thus tend
ing to aid legislation and international
agreement in rehabilitating silver.
It is possible, of course, that the accounts
we are receiving of tne yield of the Trans
vaal mines may be exaggerated. A wild
speculation in mining shares is going on
there, with the same ups and downs as we
witnessed when the Comstock was in
bonanza; and the operators are naturally
anxious to advertise their Dorado as widely
as possible. But the official reports of ex
prrts who have a reputation at stake are
very positive, and the returns of the ac
tual yield are official. The wider our
knowledge of geology spreads the more
certain it appears that tlie liberal supplies
of gold which were possessed by the
Egyptians, Assyrians, the Babylonians
and the IMienicians must have been derived
at least mainiy from South Africa, and
now for some year* enterprise hns been
turned to the rediscovery of those ancient |
sources of the precious metal.

Judge Coffey hat overruled all the demurrers
to the petition of Florence JSlytlie-liinekley for

of T. S. Lyons on behalf of Mrs. Sarah Davis,
and of Henry E. Iliuliton on behalf of Alice

argument - in tapper! of the latter demurrer,
with Attorney John Garner's reply, that occu
pied the whole of the afternoon session of the
Mr. Hlghton's chief point lay in the assertion
that the adoption of Floience had never been
proved, and that the .Supreme Court had prac
tically reversed Judge Coffey on that point, re
fusing to acknowledge any such adoption. The
main points argued upon by Mr. Hluhton were
what did this court deride? "Wliat (lid the
Supreme Court decide? How doe* its judg

while Florence might have been acknowledged
as Blythe's heir under section 1357 of me

THE MAYOR'S VETO SET ASIDE.
Van Ness Avenue Residents Protest
Against an Electric Street-
A veto was passed over the Mayor's
head and a petition of Adolph Sutro for
the refunding of the money paid fora
street-railroad franchis3 was referred to
the Finance Committee, at the meeting of
ihe Board of Supervisors yesterday after
noQU. Beyond this all matters considered
were within the usual routine. The en
tire board was present with the exception
of Supervisor Dundon. Mayor Ellert pre
sided and business was dispatched very
The petition of the "Grand Old Man of
the Heights," received early in the course
of the meeting, set forth that the wisdom
nf the Supervisors in fixing SSOOO as the
lowest sum at which a street-railroad
franchise would be sold at auction could
nut be questioned. But the attention of
the board ought to be called to the fact
that heretofore many grantees hnd re
ceived charters free of cost, whereas now,
when it was proposed to build a road
which should secure for the people a five
cent fare from the ferry to the ocean, $tiolo
had been exacted for the charter. There
fore the petitioner felt justitied iv request
ing that the SOOIO be refunded to him.
Many expressions of the peUtion were
heavily underlined, .aDd particularly the
phrase "for the people." This fact, how
ever, seemed to make little or no impres
sion upon the board, and t!;e document
was referred without discussion to the
\\ hen tho report of the Mayor's veto of
the Darby Laydon it Co.'s bill wa° read by
ttie clerk a motion w.ts immedi»tely made
that the original order be allowed not
withstanding. Without discussion, and
with only one vote iv the negative, that or
Supervisor liintou, the motion was passed.
Thus Mayor Eilert encountered the first
reversal of any of hi? decisions since his
induction into office. The ground of his
veto had been the discovery that Super
visor Duudon was a member of the firm uf
Darby Lnydon & Co., and that the letting
of public contracts to any member of the
board is illegal.
Another bit of business ef some impor
tance was the hearing and referring to tne
Street Committee of a communication pro
testing against the granting of a franchise
for a street railroad on Van Ness avenue.

run a road on the av«nu« would destroy its
usefulness and beauty as a rebidence stree!
and render it unfit for use as a parade
ground and driveway.
John T. Dare presented a request that
the Supervisors obtain the opinion of the
City and County Attorney as to the tracks
of ihe Presidio and Ferries Railroad on
Union sircer, between Hyde audLirkin,
which run so close to tne curb as to endan
ger life and damage properly.
A communication was read from prop
env-owners on Church street, conseoting
to the extension for one year of the fran
chise of the Market-street Railway Com
pany to construe: a cable road along tbat
street, on the condition that the road be
completed throughout the entire length of
the road by June 3, 1895. or a forfeit of
$.jO,COO be paid to the city. The matter
was referred to tlie Street Committee.
Various other communications and peti
tions of minor importance were read and
referred to the proper committees. Among
these was a reauest from the Fire Com
missioners for authority to organize an
additional hoik and ladder company to be
quartered In the house of Engine Company
■25, on Folsnm street, near Twenty-second.
John D. Mitchell presented his resigna
tion ai patrol-wagon driver; aud Super
vi»or Janie* referred to the board at large
a personal addressed to him requesting
him to use his influence to obtain a posi
tion on the police force for a friend's
friend. One J. C. Cooper suggested by
letter thai the board oass a resolution as
signing one-half of all forfeited bail? and
fines of gamblers to the informers.
Among the reports read were those of
the finances of the Police Department of
Police Court* 2 and 3, and the opera
tions of the Public Pound. The expenses
of Chief Crowlwv's department for the
mouth of June stood at £4!1,(>3t>41. Police

A Syndicate That Secures Heiresses
The recent departure 10 Europe of Prince
Andre Poniatowsky, who lias been In this coun

extraordinary revelation In the marital econo
mies. The Prince came to this country from
Pails, bent upon matrimonial ventures and in

helivsses, but one after the other the engage

Fiance and Germany who have no o. her pos

done, the syndicate actually paying the pauper
nobleman's fare to this country and supplying
him with funds to live in the best of style pend

Prince Poniatowsky was one of the proteges of
a syndicate of this Kind.— Chicago Tribune.
