WASHINGTON NOTES. The Navy Department Hump ing Itself. The Union Iron Works Gets An other Contract. Elisabeth Cady Stanton Proposed for the Supreme Bench. The Silver Production of the Country In creasing—Census Reports—The Lumber Tariff, Etc Associated Press Dispatches. Washington, Oct. 20.—When adver tisements for proposals for building a harbor defense ram, 350 tons; a torpedo boat, 112 tons; a swift torpedo cruieer, 760£ tons, were issued Saturday, it marked the completion by the navy de partment of all the work of new con struction which it has been authorized to undertake with two exceptions. These are a submarine monitor and a dupli cate of the Vesuvius, which, it is un likely, will be constructed on the lines originally laid down. Congress at the last session made provision for six new vessels, most of them of a heavier type and more complete construction than any yet built, and the naval authorities are felicitating themselves upon the fact that they have within three weeks after adjournment been able to complete all of the designs, issue proposals, and in several cases award construction of these vessels. In addition to this record of quick designing,the construction bureau was charged during the year with the preparation of plans for five vessels as authorized to be built by the preceding congress. The secretary of the navy received a telegram today from the Union Iron Works of San Francisco, accepting the department's terms for the construction of one battle ship. The contract price is $3,180,000, or $60,000 more than the Cramp's bid. Esteem for Justice Miller. There was a meeting of the bar of the supreme court of the United States to day for the purpose of expressing the esteem in which the late Justice Miller was held by the attorneys who practiced before the court. A committee was ap pointed to prepare resolutions commem orative of the services of Justice Miller, and the meeting adjourned until Decem ber 6th, when the resolutions will be re ported. A very full attendance of lawyers throughout the country is ex pected to attend this meeting. The court met at noon, but being without a quorum immediately adjourned. Mrs. Stanton to Succeed Him. The local wage-workers' political alli ance has presented a petition to Presi dent Harrison, requesting him to pre sent the name of Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton to the senate of the United States, as associate justice, in place of Justice Miller, deceased. Census Announcements. The following census announcements are made for Oregon: City. Population. Increase. Per cent. Astoria 7,071 4,268 152.27 Albina 5,140 4,961 3,469.23 Portland 47,279 29,717 167.07 East Portland 10,481 7,571 257 23 Population of the State 312,419, in crease 137,222, per cent. 78.80. The population of the state of Wiscon sin, corrected, is 1,683,679. an increase of 368,200. The Lumber Tariff. Assistant Secretary Spaulding made a ruling today that lumber imported from Canada prior to the 13th instant, but the entry of which was not completed until after that date, is entitled to the lower rate of duty prescribed for lumber in the existing tariff law. October 13th is the date fixed by the Dominion government for the removal of the export duty on lumber. Silver Purchases. The amount of silver ofjered to the treasury today was 1,217,000 ounces; the amount purchased, 647,000 ounces, as follows: 27.000 ounces at $1.0940 ; 50,000 at $1.0948; '50,000 at $1 0959 ; 70,000 at $1.0966 ; 50,000 at $1.0964 ; 200,000 at $1.0967. Admiral Porter Better. The condition of Admiral Porter is slightly improved. The Silver Product Increasing. E. O. Leech, director of the mint, has returned from, a visit to a number of mines in the west. Speaking of his trip he said: "As to the prospects of silver mining and the current production of our mines, I should say the silver pro duct of the United States is increasing. Certainly there is great activity in all the mining camps which I have visited, and when one considers that only a short time ago they were getting only 90 cents an ounce for silver, and '&% cents a pound for lead, while today silver is worth $1.10 an ounce and 6 ceuts pound for lead, it is not surpris ing that there should be great activity in mining industries, and the output should be increased." THE OHIO LEGISLATURE. Governor Campbell Insulted by the Speaker of tke House. Columbus, Oct. 20.—The lower branch of the legislature reconvened this after noon, the senate having adjourned to tomorrow. Governor Campbell sent a message to the house, but the speaker refused to recognize his private secretary and an adjournment motion was rushed through. Governor Campbell looks upon this action as a personal insult. The message suggested a non-partisan board of improvement for Cincinnati, to be appointed by the mayor, and an election to be held in April. The message will go to the senate tomorrow. Running: at Lexington. Lexington, Oct. 20.—Four furlongs— Jones won, Silver Light second, Spider third; time 51)$. Four furlongs—Mondroit won, B. G. T. second. Norvel third; time 50.

Killed at a Crosetae. kjcoKi'x,la.,Oct.2o.—A passenger train on the Keokuk and Western railway struck a wagon at a road crossing near Oenterville today. Three occupants, Isaac Bremer, wife and son, were in THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 21. 1890 stantly killed. The coroner's jury held the train while the testimony of the train crew and passengers was taken. The jury returned a verdict exonerating the company from blame. WHITE AND BLACK. Proposed Division of the State of Mis sissippi with a Color Line. Jackson, Miss., Oct. 20. —The supple mental report of the legislative commit tee relating to state boundaries was taken up for consideration this morning. The second and last section thereof reads as follows: "The legislature shall have power to consent to the acquisition of additional territory by this state, and to make the same a part thereof; and the legislature may consent to the creation of another state or territory to be formed in whole or part of a portion of this state, whenever the consent of the con gress of the United States shall be given thereto; and the legislature may solve disputed boundaries between this state and its coterminous states whenever such disputes arise." This is regarded by the delegates from the black counties as an intimation that the white counties may at some future time make an attempt to secede from the black counties, and leave them to struggle alone with the race problem. A Steamer Burned. Port Huron, Mich., Oct. 20.—The steamer Annie Young, of the Lake Su perior Transit Company, took fire and burned to the water's edge off Carington, this morning. The steamer Ed Smith went to the rescue, and took thirteen of the crew off and brought them here. The balance of the crew, eight men, were drowned. The Young had a cargo of coal and merchandise. She was 693 tons burden, and valued at $30,000. The mate was badly burned. The Two Jerry Dunns. New York, Oct. 20.—Sporting circles in this city were startled this morn ing by the news of the death of Jerry Dunn, in a small town near El Paso, Texas. The shock was soon dis sipated, however, when it became known that Jerry Dunn was not the Jerry Dunn the dispatch referred to. The dead man is Jerry Dunn, of Boston, who fell into decline and was sent south by his friends. Jerry Dunn is still alive. CUBA'S DESIRE. RECIPROCITY WANTED WITH THE UNITED STATES. The Spanish Government Petitioned for Speedy Action in the Matter of Estab lishing Reciprocal Relations. Washington. Oct. 20.—The state de partment has received a copy of the minutes of the debates which have recently taken place in the chamber of commerce at Havana with reference to the McKinley bill and the question of reciprocity. The statement which was transmitted to the Spanish minister of colonies was accompanied by a letter from the president of the chamber, which shows the existence of a strong sentiment favorable to a reciprocal treaty with the United States. The statement was sent to the minister in response to a message from him, asking suggestions as to any modifications de sired in the Cuban tariff. l The writer says, in part : "The new Cuban tariff proposed by Spain must be preceded by the repeal of the act of 1882, because that act creates insuperable obstacles to the develop ment of the foreign commerce of Cuba, which is indispensable to the cultivation of its products. It is the opinion of all Cubans that the greatest market for Cu ban goods is the nation whose ports lie at its very door. The chamber of commerce does not hesitate to affirm that the United States is to be the regulator of the economical market, just as England is of the money market. The law makers of the United States know per fectly well that the people whom they represent have an abundance of the necessaries of life. They know that by imposing heavy duties upon the manu factured goods of Europe, they favor the development of their own industries; compel the well-to-do classes to pay in direct taxes, and have no cause to fear European reprisals, for such reprisals would have to apply to cereals, meat, petroleum, etc., which are the very ar ticles those nations absolutely require. The United States care but little for re ciprocity with Europe, for it knows that Europe has need of its products, and will grant it or refuse it, as may suit its own interests. It cares a great'deal, however, for reciprocity with the na tions of America." Attention is called to the fact that Brazil is preparing to secure the market of the United >tates for its sugar. The manner in which Brazil wrested from Cuba the palm of being the chief coffee producer is alluded to, and a warning is sounded that the same thing may hap pen with regard to sugar. The letter closes with the expression of the hope that the gravity of these economical problems in the Antilles will receive the attention they deserve, and with the apprehension, well founded, the writers think, that Cuban produc tions, especially sugar, may be unable to compete in the North American mar ket with those of other sugar producing countries. The Cotton Belt Sold. St. Louis, Oct. 20.—The Missouri and Arkansas division of the St. Louis & Texas railway, commonly known as the "Cotton Belt," extending from Bird's Point, Mo., opposite Cairo, 111., to Tex arkana, Ark., was sold at auction today. It was purchased by the reorganization committee, General Louis Fitzgerald, president of the former company, being the bidder, for $6,000,000. The Texas division will be sold under a similar decree, at Waco, Thursday. No More Lottery Business. New York, Oct. 20.—The United States Express company has issued per emptory orders to all its agents not to receive money, tickets or lists of draw ings from the Louisiana Lottery com pany, or in any way to assist in the transportation of lottery business. Governor Hill on the Stump. Albany, Oct. 20.—Governor Hill leaves today for Ohio, to speak on Democratic principles at different places in that state. His first speech will be made at Canton tomorrow night. The governor will go later on to West Vir ginia. An Alderman's Steal. San Antonio, Tex., Oct. 20.—John H. Bolton, a member of the board of alder men of this city, has disappeared, and it ia claimed, with about $20,000 in cash, procured by various fraudulent means.

A Scorcher on the Assessor's Office From a Farmer Who Knows. Other Matters of Moment G leaned in Street Talks With Intelligent Citizens of City or Country. To how the trend of political matters the Herald prints a few letters, one of many giving the views of voters on the candidates. These run as follows : Why a Republican Will Vote for Pond. Editors Herald—l have been, and still am, a Republican. The fact of my iMng so however should not pervert my judgment nor prevent me from exercis ing my rights as a citizen in voting at the coming election in such a way as to me seems best, for my own good, the good of my fellow citizens, and the good of the whole state. I am in favor of a man at the head of the affairs of this statewho has sufficient knowledge of state affairs. I do not think that the distinguished gentleman nominated by my party has that full knowledge of the history of this state and its requirements to successfully fill the office of govern6r of the state of California; nor do I think he has surrounded himself with ad visors such as would not advise him for the best interests of the state. His lack of knowledge of the men and more especially of the politicians of the state must necessarily place him at a disadvantage when he has to rely on the judgment of others. His lack of knowl edge of the affairs of this state, and his evident want of self-reliance would, if he should be elected, make dependence upon the judgment aud advice of others, absolutely necessary, and the character of the persons who would be likely to be his advisers is such as to lead to the con clusion that in case of the election of Colonel Markham, a defaulting secretary of state, or some one of that ilk, would be the de facto governor of the state. This has been the trouble of the pres ent executive of our state, and the cause of the lamentable failure which he has made as a governor. Therefore, I shall vote for the nominee of the Dem ocratic party. It is admitted that he is an old resident of the state with large interests in the state, that he has suc cessfully filled offices of public trust in this state, and that he is now the mayor of San Francisco, and faithfully and suc cessfully stands up for the interests of its citizens. I am a Republican. Will Not Support Bad Men. Editors Herald: The various Re publican papers of the city and county previous to the convention, said: "We must nominate only good men, with clean records and correct habits, if we hope to elect them, that we had better elect good Democrats rather than bad Republicans"—to which we all agreed. Yet after all the precaution and ad vice of cur best papers, the convention nominated men for office of bad record and worse habits. Men who are utterly unworthy the support of any good who holds that in county politics that good men are of more importance than mere party. I hear many good and prominent Re publicans openly declare they will not support such men as Aguirre" or Kelly for any office. Simply because the con vention nominated them is no reason we have to support them, and what is more we are not going to, and if we have anything to do with it, they will not he elected. One half of the Republicans here said they would not support Aguirre before the Willett affair, but since it we would not vote for him if he was"endorsed by all the political parties in the county. Norwalk. Farmer Frnmpton on Taxes. Editors Herald—l take pleasure in stating that the people of this district and surrounding country are and have been enjoying a season of general pros perity, large crops and good prices for everything so far. Wine grapes are nearly all in. Quite a number of acres have been dried. Generally they have yielded better than was expected. I regret to say, however, that the vine disease is still here, and as far as I can see, as bad as last year. Corn looks well, and no doubt the crop will be large. A large amount of the company's land has been sold to actual settlers. Politics is looming up now, an«l we are wondering whether there is going to be more economy when the new officers get in. The last four years the people have been cinched unmercifully. The assessor and supervisors are the principal ones to look after, as well as senators and assemblymen. A determined fight has been kept up by the Republicans of this section against Mason, and they thought they had beat him badly. Have they done so ? When you consider that Mr. Mason prefers Mr. Gray to anyone else, and the fact that he was one of Mason's deputies, does it not look as though the wool was pulled down—away down—over the eyes of the Republicans after all? Should Gray be elected, the same policy and the same deputies, in fact Mr. Gray knows nothing else about assessing but what Mr. Mason learned him. Let each taxpayer look over his old tax receipts. He will find that under Bilderrain and the other Democratic county officers, taxes on forty rcres of hndand improve ments were only about half as much as under Mason and the Republican outfit. The tax levy has been made, and as usual it is $1.80; no matter what the as sessment of the county is. Our whole souled supervisors must have $1.80 on the $100. To reach that amount, 30 per cent, is added for road pur poses. Two years ago Mr. Davis, after defeating Judge Venable, he promised great things, among others that we should have good roads. The 30 per cent, collected last year was blown in, and what have we got to show for it. The road between Artesia and Norwalk is no better than it was ten years ago. The sand is horrible this fall. If I had the power I would compel Mr. Davis to team on such a road and pay 30 per cent., and- $2 poll tax besides. No, as long as we have a lawyer for supervisor we cannot expect much. I suppose he might say the floods last winter were so bad it took all for bridges, but the fact remains that if the river is not kept in its bed, 100 per cent will not pay for bridges. I don't think there is a farmer here be lieves the roads will be any better ne<t fall than they are now, after this 30 per cent, is blown in. We would like Mr. Davis to make us a visit, and tell us what we may ex pect for our money. George Frampton. A Meeting at Compton. A Compton man perpetrates the fol lowing on a Republican meeting held there: I-ast night at the peaceable city of Compton Republican speakers came down, To tell us of Man ham, The man from the no-liquor town. Tlicy all had no use for the Herald, And'how they did scorch M. C. Monday— Then stopped they precisely at twelve, So as not to infringe upon "Sunday." They advised to have respect for the Sabbath, Andttot to drink any thing strong, Thatit was against their principle And morally, awfully wrong. They were heartily glad that old Compton Had not a saloon in her midst, And were sorry, and deeply regretted, That the original package exists. Then dispersing, the good honest people, Moved off without further delay, And these models of temperance doctrine, To the package house wended their way. They reveled far after the muftiight. Till daylight forced them to abscond, Then they parted with anxious expressions, That Markham won't fall in the Pond. —B X M. £ How Gray Worked It. Just prior to the Republican conven tion a little country paper printed about "steen" puffs of Captain F. Edward Gray of Alhambra. Among them was this: "There seems to be a custom that has become a well established law, that no so called "tenderfoot" shall be elected to office. This, apparently, is one of the secrets of Capt. Gray's enthusiastic re ception as a candidate for assessor. "His residence in the county for four teen years is sufficient evidence that he is here to stay. He has worked hard for the county's interest during that time, and deserves reward for his tenacity, loyalty and well-doing." This, of course, was aimed at Tom Lewis. Some one has got the item and has been passing it around among the "tenderfeet," and "C : apt. F. Edward Gray of Alhambra" will probably hear from it two weeks from today. 1 Here is a specimen of how Republi can rule heaps up expenses. In the good old Democratic days the rounty treasurer received his salary, and did all the work. There the expenses of the office began and ended. There was no office rent, book-keeper nor other adden da. Besides the salary of the treasurer under Republican rule, the office costs I $350 a month. That is why so many Republicans will vote for Dr. Kurtz this time.

S.) cured my little boy of hereditary scrofula, which broke out all over his face. For a year he had suffered, and I had given up all hopes of his recovery, when at length I decided to use S. 8. S. Af ter using a few bottles he was entirely cured. Not a symptom now remains of tbe disease. This was three years ago. MRS. T. L. MATHERS, Mathersville, Miss. In the early part of last year I had a vio lent attack of rheumatism, from which I was confined to my bed for over three months and at times was unable to turn myself in bed, or cventraise the cover. A nurse had to be in constant attendance day and night. I was so feeble that what little nourishment I took had to be given me with a spoon. Af ter calling in the best local physicians, and trying all other medicines without receiving any benefit, I was induced by friends to try Swift's Specific (S. S. 3.) I discontinued all other medicines, and took a course c-I S. S. S, thirteen small bottles, which affected a com plete and permanent cure. L. C. BASSET, El Dorado, Kansas.

Orange Lands For All! THE SEMI-TROPIC LAND AND WATER CO. have about 20,000 acres left of their original purchase of 20,000 acres of the best orange land in Southern California. * We have always sold our lands for $200 per acre, until this fall.

This leaves the net price at $00 PER ACRE, payable, $10 per acre cash, the balance in 3 equal payments, due in 2, 3 and 4 years, at 8 per cent interest. In the other district we sell the land for $100 per acre, with a rebate of $25 for improvements put on the land by purchaser the first year, which leaves the net price at $75 PER ACRE, payable $10 per acre cash, balance in 2, 3 and 4 years, at 8 per cent, interest. . Our lands lie four miles west of San Bernardino and Colton, on the Santa Ec and Southern Pacific railroads,seven miles north of Riverside.and we are prepared to establish the fact that in quality and location they are not excelled in this country.
