PARNELL PLAYING A LOSING PART.
It is inconceivable that a man of Par
nell'? political astuteness should want
to retain the leadership of the Irish
party in the face of the positive opposi
tion of the English Liberal party, and
the evident desire on the part of his own
colleagues that he may be able to see
the necessity of his retirement. His
sullen attitude seems to indicate a self
ishness we had not before suspected in
Parnell. Xo man can rise above pub
lic sentiment, and it is especially unfor
tunate that one who has it in his power
to help or injure a great national cause
should for a moment place his own per
sonality or feelings in the balance
against that cause. A man of large,
broad and comprehensive principles
would certainly not do so, and
wo have heretofore given Parnell
credit for those principles. He has
tjertainly been a great leader, and has
exhibited a force of character in his
championship of the rights of Ireland
which give him the highest claims upon
the gratitude of his countrymen. Yet
he dwarfs himself and tarnishes his
record when he fails to appreciate the
fact that his dogged persistence en
dangers the great cause for which he
haa worked so long and so splendidly.
For, alter all, where is the credit to him
if after performing a magnificent work
for his country he deliberately spoils it
and renders it nugatory by an act of su
If others than himself were to blame
for the situation in which he finds he
ia placed, there might be some reason
for his sullen attitude. But his party
has been loyal to him in every emer
gency; it has followed him with a har
mony and a fidelity such as has never
been witnessed bcfure in Irish leader
ship; and even now it clings to the
shadow of a hope that he may unseal
his lips and give liis friends
some explanation of his conduct that
will enable them to face the moral
world wito a decent line of defense.
This last relief, however, his colleagues
can hardly hope for. Whatever the mo
tive for his silence, and whatever of a
condonatory character may lie behind
it, it is now too late to change the set
tled conviction of the public. He is un
fortunate if he is impeccant, but as the
world goes his silence is looked upon as
But if Parnell stood ready to resist
any demand from his own immediate
followers to withdraw, how can he ex
pect to maintain his hold upon his own
party, if he persists to refuse to do so in
the face of the attitude of Gladstone and
the English Liberal party? If he should
do so, it will be manifest to the whole
world that he considers himself before
hig country—and when once he falls
from public esteem as a patriot, not only
his usefulness but his well-earned fame
will be gone. Look at his attitude from
any point of view, and it ia not cal
culated to raise him in public esteem ;
and however set he may be in his
purpose to hoid his place at the head of
the Irish home rulers, he will ulti
niately'be compelled to retire. He has
now a chance to do so gracefully; in a
few days he will be forced to go, with
the further humiliation that hia reputa
tion for patriotism will go with him.
The temper of the noble English
allies of home rule cannot be mistaken—
they will not co-operate with the Irish
party if Parnell retains ita leadership.
When Mr. Gladstone felt constrained to
take a positive attitude on the issue
every one may be assured that it is a
very grave one. The Liberals, under
the leadership of the "grand old man,"
were to all outward appearances, going
on to certain victory. All the indica
tions furnished by the elections up till
the Parnell scandal, pointed that way.
As the case stands now, if Salisbury
were to dissolve parliament, the Tories
could scarcely fail to achieve an un
precedented triumph. The temporary
retirement of Parnell from a leadership
in which he could no longer hope to be
effective would seem to be called for on
every patriotic consideration. The fate
of one man or of a score of men counts
but a trifle in the scale as against the
interests of a whole people.
THE LAST OF HIS RACE.
The recent death of William 111,
king of Holland, in his seventy-third
year, may prove the first link in an in
teresting chain of political events in
The historical family of Orange has
most probably with his demise closed
ita career as a reigning dynasty.
Founded in the sixteenth century by
William, the Silent, whose heroic efforts
for the liberation of the Netherlands
from the tyranny of Spain and France
terminated abruptly in his assassination
THE LOS ANfIELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 29, 1890
in 1584, the houee of Orange has ruled
Holland throughout some of the most
brilliant achievements, both at home
and abroad, to which any nation can
The late king had been twice mar
ried. Two sons of the first union died
without heirs. His second wife, to
whom he was wedded in 1870, was Prin
cess Emma, of Waldeck-Pyrmont, a sis
ter of the Duchess of Albany (wife oi
Prince Arthur of England). The heir to
the throne is Princess Wilhelmlna, a
child of ten years, during whose minor
ity Queen Emma will act as regent.
Judging by the republican trend oi
thought and feeling on the continent,
however, it is extremely problematic
that this child will ever wear her
father's crown. Long before she comes
of age the United States of Europe may
have become an accomplished fact. But,
in the nearer foreground, the sleepless
jealousy between France aud Germany
may precipitate awkward complications
in connection with Luxemburg, of
which the late king was grand duke,
j The Salic law, precluding a woman
from inheriting regal power, causes Hol
land's child-queen to lose this annex to
her patrimonial inheritance, Duke
Adolf of Nassau, a member of another
branch of the family of Orange—ac
cording to this remnant of the rule of
the Franks—becoming its possessor.
The duke is a German subject, Nassau
having been incorporated by Germany
in her grand territorial sweep of 1800.
The tiny, triangular-shaped princi
pality, only thirty-two miles broad by
fifty long, with a population of a little
more than 200,000, lies wedged in be
tween Belgium and Rhenish Prussia,
touching France on the southwest. It
forms a point of great strategetieal im
portance, particularly in case of a re
newal of hostilities between France and
In 1807, Napoleon 111 created a furor
in European political circles by arousing
suspicions of a contemplated absorption
oi Luxemburg and Belgium. An inter
national meeting, held in London in
; consequence, resulted in a treaty by
I which the little state was declared neu
! tral and placed in the guaranteed pos
session of the house of Orange-Nassau.
Bismarck, who was hardly willing to
precipitate the Franco-Prussian struggle
at that time, renounced the right of gar
risoning the missive fortress in the
southern part of the duchy, which,
somewhat later, was demolished.
The natural inference is that France
would regard with extreme disfavor
Germany acquiring a position of such
consequence on her northern frontier.
Germany, in her desire for extended
commercial seaboard, is openly credited
with a hankering for rounding off
her coast line by the acquisition of
Holland. And France, in turn, is not
devoid of ambition in this section of
Europe also. The annexation of Bel
gium she believes to be 'part of her
natural destiny. To either party the
acquisition of Luxemburg would greatly
facilitate the aims of the one and retard
those of the other.
Upon some such pivot may turn that
disturbance of the balance of power in
Europe, which, in all likelihood, will
add a very stirring chapter to modern
THE DUTY OF THE DEMOCRACY.
We are not of those who think it a
man's duty to supp6rt any name on his
party ticket, irrespective of the question
of merit or demerit. In local affairs
particularly it is the highest duty of the
citizen to discriminate, and not only not
to vote for men positively objectionable,
but, on the contrary, to vote directly
against those of notorious unfitness for
the place. But common aa it is for a
man to suffer for the company he is in,
it ia not always just that he should. It
ia proverbial that politics makes strange
Next Monday it will be the duty of
the citizens of this municipality to vote
for city officers. The government of the
city for the past two years has been no
toriously bad. It lias been our cher
ished hope that we would be
able to redeem the city from misrule
at the approaching election. It is still
our hope that thia may be at least par
tially done. It is always a misfortune to
have any party exercise uncontrolled
sway in any government. A divided
responsibility ia almost universally
found to be the best.
We most earnestly commend to the
Democratic voters of this city a number
of names on our ticket that stand for the
highest types of manhood in this com
munity. It is most desirable that the
council, the board of education and the
library trustees be as largely Demo
cratic as possible. It will be for the
best interests of the city to have
it so, and fortunately there are
names on the ticket for all these
offices that are worthy of the
earnest support of all good men.
The councilmanic ticket is particularly
strong. Not to mention them all, Daniel
Innes in the Second ward, V. Ponet in
the Fourth, John Osborne in the Fifth,
J. T. Bearden in the Sixth, and D. M.
McUarry in the Seventh, are among the
best known and most thoroughly trusted
men in tho city, They are thoroughly
identified with the city's interests, and
their worst enemies cannot find one
word to say to their discredit.
The list oi names up for library trus
tees is an equally Strong one. Again,
not to multiply instances, it will be
only necessary to take the first
and last in the list, E. H.
Owen and J. 1). Bicknell. If the city
were picked two more suitable names
could not be selected.
For the general offices there are M. F.
Stiles for clerk, I. 11. Polk for treasurer,
A. McNally for superintendent of streets
and J. H. Dockweiler for engineer,
all men who may claim the fealty of
every member of their party, and the
careful consideration of all good citizens
of all parties. They are possessed of all
Jeffersonian tests for fitness to hold of
fice. They are capable, honest and
sober. No voters can by any possibility
make any mistake in giving their suf
frage and their earnest support to these
men. They are worthy.
It is the duty of the party to up
hold every man of them, and it will be
better for the city if they are put in
trust. Without going into any pro
gramme of disparagement as to their
opponents, we do not hesitate to say
that our men are by far the best. Let
them have their full party vote, and
whenever there is a Republican in
doubt as to tho fitness of the opposing
candidate on liis own ticket, we say
confidently, hesitate no Linger, but give
your vote and your aid to these men oi
ours. They will not disappoint you.
It is a critical period in the history of
our party in this city. Let no mistake
be made. We can sutler defeat with
less injury than we can achieve succef-s
in the election of improper men to office ;
but do not let any such counsel result in
any injury to any thoroughly good man
on our ticket. Give him more earnest
j and hearty support because of the cxi
! gencies of the occasion.
Aftbb a characteristic exhibition of
moral cowardice, the local Democracy
nominated their municipal ticket on
The above is from the Express of last
evening. In another article our neigh
bor says, speaking of the Democratic
The whole thing is so rank that our
esteemed Democratic contemporary, the
Herald, is so tilled with unspeakable
indignation and disgust that it has thus
far refrained from mentioning editorially
the fact that a ticket has bee . launched,
although two days have elapsed since
the auspicious event.
Why the Express should speak of the
"eharaeteristiccowardice" of the Democ
racy is not apparent, but let that go. Out
neighbor seems to admire moral courage,
and wo shall be glad at some future time
to see it practice as it preaches. We
have often set it an example of this ster
ling quality, and shall be glad to see it
emulate this good example when some
member of its own party, especially
some rascally office-holder, is charged
Thebr is every indication of great i
activity in the Terminal railway project.
Mr. Richard Kerrens writes that his as
sociates and himself will be out here
early in February to look over the
ground. Meanwhile, seventy thousand
tons of steel rails and a proportionate
quantity of ties will be sent to Los An- j
geles forthwith. This will be enough to j
rail and tie seventy miles of road. Mr. :
Burnett, the Los Angeles managerof the
company, is about to start for the cast J
to further the objects of the enterprise j
and expedite the arrangements looking j
toward active construction.
Mb. Editor: Although my taxes are small,
f«t they are as burdensome to me as if I paid j
much more. Aud as a tax-payer, I feel that 1 ■
have a right to criticise those extravagances j
that are factors iv the creation of high taxes. I 1
have iv my mind tho county hospital. No
■Doner does Ihe impecunious citizen beeonio
broken down and debilitated, than he rushes off
to the hospital. Even persistent dyspepsia and
j constipation aro getting to be excuses for admis
sion. Hence, allow mo spice to enter my feeble
! protest against further continuance of this per
nicious practice. It costs the county many
hard dollars for the treatment of every onetjf
these unfortunates, and It is high time that they
should know that they can save the county that
expense, and themselves those distressing ail
ments, by tho judicious use ot a few bottles of j
Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla,— a remedy that
within my observation is a sovereign cure for
those too common disorders. If they won't take \
it they ought to be compelled to by some law
that would meet the ease. Under the circum
stances a full hospital is inexcusable, — hence
this growl. CITIZEN. )

Seieneo Overcomes Deafness.
Just now the medical world is engaged in dis
cussing the new device for deafness called
Sound Disc. No invention of late has attracted
so much interest among the medical profession.
Its perfection, which is now an established fact,
has resulted in the overthrow of many pet
theories of there being no relief for a vast num
ber of eases.
This ingenious discovery was made by H. A.
Wales, of Bridgeport, Conn., nnd coming as it
