We are not in formed as to who it was discovered that Mr. McGlashan possessed those statesmanlike qualities which distin guished him above other cranks and led to his selection as a candidate for a member of the Congress of the United States. Just what Mr. McGlashan had done to indicate the possession on his part of statesmanlike qualities we were at a loss to understand. Why any con siderable body of intelligent people should have found in the personality, the attainments, or the record of Mr. McGlashan anything to indicate that he could legislate wisely for the people of California, or that he understood the wants of this people better than the av erage man, was very confusing. But the whole matter has been cleared up by Mr. McGlashan himself. 11 ■ has furnished a clear explanation tor his selection to be a candidate for Congress. He has with marvelous lu cidity pointed out those great qualifica tions which distinguish the statesman from the common herd. In the interest of fusion between the Populists and the Democrats Mr. Mc- Glashan was requested to hand in his resignation to the fusion committee-, which, by a process of " heads and tails," would determine whether De Vries of Stockton or McGlashan of Truckee was to be the fusion candidate. Mr. McGlashan declines to hand in hia i • signation. He aaka Mr. De Vries to make that sacrifice, and he does this because he claims to possess superior c.ualihcations for the office of Congress man. The first statesmanlike quality which Mr. McGlashan possesses is that he, personally, drove the Chinese out of Truck> c. There is a great point in this. Vhat Mr. McGlashan did for the ham let of Truckee Mr. Geary claims to have done for the whole United States. Mr. McGlashan cleaned out a town because his private citizenship did not give him a wider sphere. Mr. Geary excluded the Chinese because the theater of his act was as broad as the Nation. The hoodlum who cleans out a single wash bouse is a statesman on a small scale, and it should, therefore, not be a mat ter of surprise that Mr. McGlashan re gards the fact that he was Instru mental In driving the Chinese out of Truckee as a satisfactory credential of his fitness to be a member of the Con gress of the United State*. The Truc kee statesman further says that he is ktill King of Truckee; that the railroad company frequently petitions his highness for permission to introduce Chinese, but that he resolutely resist- All blandishments oy n-fusing to have any Chinaman reside within his do main. True, he allows them to pass through on the trains, but whether this is by virtue of a treaty of amity and comity between his highness, the King of Truckee, and their highnesses, the railroad kings, we are not informed. The second statemaniike clement in Mr. MeGlashan's record, according to the list furnished by himself, is that he was a striker in IM)4. He does not say whether he was an employe and struck against his employer, nor what the merit of his contention as a striker was: but as the members of the American Railway Union claim to have had no grievance whatever against the South ern Pacific Company, the people who were not employed by the railroad com pany had just as much right to strike as those who were. The strike of is;»4 entailed the loss of millions upon the country, and entail'-d especially jgti at hardships upon the people of Califor nia. For more than a month it ai rested the movement of the fruit crop, par alyzed commerce, inflicted financial loss upon every class of people, and at last ended in an inglorious surrender by the strikers themselves. If Ifr MeGlash an's record as a striker in 1894 entitles aim to a seat ia Congress, why was it SACRAMENTO DAILY BEOOBD-TINIOK, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 18M. that the Populists overlooked Worden? Shall Mr. McGlashan go to Congress and Mr. Worden to the gallows? Which of the two manifested the greatest zeal in the Interest of the strike? The Gov ernment of the United States ordered the Pacific Railroads opened from Omaha to Oakland. Worden resisted this order, and he was instrumental in throwing a train from the trestle by which five men lost their lives. To what length did the zeal of McGlashan go as a striker? Did he submit tamely to the authority of the Government of the United States? How, where and when did he strike? What was the na ture or extent of his grievance as an employe of the Southern Pacific? What leadership did he assume? What sac rifice did he make? Did he lose his pay for any length of time? Was he black listed by the railroads? Was he made ineligible to further service? Did he kill locomotives or throw rocks at scab firemen? If he did any of these noble and valiant deeds, now is the. time to recount them. If to have been a striker in 1894 fits a man to be a member of Congress, the full record of Mr. Mc- Glashan's participation in the strike would be a most valuable campaign doc ument at this time. The third in the list of Mr. McGlash an's high qualifications for the posi tion of law-making statesmanship re lates to his claim that he has the unan imous support of the A. P. A. organiza tion. Is this true, and if it is true, then what does it signify? Is there neces sity just now for legislation proscriptive of men because of their religious con victions? Has the great doctrine of freedom of conscience in America lost its hold upon the affections of the peo ple? Is liberty of conscience dead, and is there in contemplation national leg islation proscriptive of men's political rights because of the religious convic tions they may entertain? Mr. McGlashan himself, having de clared that it is an important element of his own eligibility that he is sup ported by the A. P. A. organization, will do well to announce the particular legislative measures which he will as an A. P. A. introduce in Congress. We have here then three distinct claims for Congressional eligibility: the driving of the Chinese from the town of Truckee; participation in the American Railway Union strike of 18114, and the support of the A. P. A. organization. Let Mr. McGlashan come forward now and define clearly what measures he proposes to introduce in the Congress of the United States relating to these three great public questions. What bill will he introduce providing for the permanent expulsion of the Chinese from Truckee? What measure will he propose relating to the strike of 1H04? And what legislation will he offer pro scriptive of the rights of citizens of the United States whose guesses at the will of the unseen Powers concerning man kind may differ from his own? When he has outlined the legislation based upon these three pre-eminent attributes of statesmanship his constituency will be in possession of the data which will enable them to determine whether the Second Congressional District desires his services in Congress or otherwise. HOW TO DO IT. It is conceded on all sides that an in crease in the volume or" silver money of our own mintage that will not injuri ously affect commercial exchanges is desirable. How then can it be attained until such time as the nations agree upon uniformity, and by international compact consent to free coinage un der such conditions as would give none an advantage and would operate equal ly upon all? The way to the end desired the "Rec ord-Union" has already set forth. It is simple, reasonable and will force into circulation a large volume of silver for all possible domestic uses, and not one whit interfere with the commercial use of gold to the full of our necessities. It will create no panic, affect no cred its, disturb no obligations, interrupt no commercial transactions, and not dis turb the parity maintained between the two metals. The plan is in harmony with the Republican platform and will accomplish all that the most radical Prynnltes can reasonably expect. Let all silver coinage of the United Btates be made a legal tender to the extent of fifty dollars; issue no gold paper, or anything based on gold, and coin no gold medium of less than $20. For convenience let a silver bill of $20 Issue. Then order all the silver In pos session of the Government to be mint ed. This will swell the volume of sli ver to between 9600,000,000 and $700, --(•00,000 and augment the per capita money to a figure that will satisfy all ni eds and demands and settle thewhole I financial question outside of tariff rev enues. Another lie is nailed. For some weeks the Kryanites have been parading, wdth great blowing of trumpets to call at tention, ,n article purporting to have appeared in the editorial columns of the London "Financial News," in which it was stated that free coinage of sil ver in the United States will ruin the trade of Great Britain in this country and in all the Latin States inside of a year, and make the grass grow in some streets of London. Therefore, because It would give the United States abso lute monopoly of all such and much' other trade, the ••News" advises all Englishmen to exert the utmost influ ence to oppose free coinage here. Now If this were true It wouid argue the ed itor of the "Financial News" an ass to say it. If he really believed as much he would have the capacity to be secre tive and not give the snap away. So then the internal and external evi dences of the thing being a fake were patent. However, as the Demo cratic press and the Populist organs have kept the "article" on its travels, and have dwelt upon it extendedly, and doubtless with some effect, it has been thought wise to look into the integrity ot the article. And what is the result? No such writing ever appeared in the • Financial News," or any other Eng lish journal. Secondly, the editor of the "News" writes that the whole thing is a bald, impudent forgery, and asks his New York correspondent if he is taken In America to be a consummate fool? So much for that. Governor Flower well said In the Democratic Convention Wednesday that Mr. Bryan is the first candidate in the history of the nation who has ap pealed to the passions of the people to promote his own candidacy. He might have gone further; he is the first candi date for the Presidency who has not had the courage to debate any and every issue offered by the position of his op ponents. Bryan is as dumb as an oyster Concerning every plank in any and all of the platforms, save one. He plays upon a harp of one string and his tune is a monotone. LADY INJURED. Mrs. William Davis Run Down by a Cyclist. As Mr. and Mrs. William Davis were crossing the street at Sixth and X early last evening Mrs. Davis was knocked down and severely hurt by the wheel of a young scorcher. She was assisted to McMorry's drug store and a physi cian called, but no examination was made there to ascertain the extent of her injury, and she was taken home. The wheel struck her on the left thigh with such force as to knock her down. Her head struck the pavement, and but fur her heavy roll of hair the fall might have had a bad result. As it is, Mrs. Davis' injury probably is not serious. It is strange that so many youngsters should select J and X streets for fast riding these nights while there are such throngs of people and vehicles on the street. It looks as if some of them at least desire to "show off" before the State Fair visitors. And these bicycle riders are not alone to blame. In less than five minutes after the accident to Mis. Davis a man and woman dashed up X street in a buggy, drawn by a gray horse, at about a lifteen-mile-an-hour gait. They came near running doyvn several pedestrians. An example should be made of one of these street riders that will have the effect of deterring others from pursu ing the practice. Weather Report.
