THE LATEST TELEGRAPHIC NEWS.
Persons who take the Los Angeles
Daily Herald in Southern California
and most localities of Arizona and New
Mexico get all the important local and
telegraphic news from twenty-four to
thirty-six hours in advance of the San
Francisco papers.
"BLOWING IN" THE PEOPLE'S MONEY.
Elsewhere we republish from the New
York Sun an article devoted to the
costly details of President Harrison's
second term "swing around the circle."
That journal, which is nearly always ex
act to a mathematical demonstration,
estimates the cost of this trip at $40,000.
Benjamin Harrison is not a rich man.
Whoever is paying for this most
expensive expedition expects Borne
return for it. It has been ornamented
by the presence of Postmaster-General
Wanamaker—he of the $400,000 corrup
tion fund. It may have been designed
as an advertisement of Wanamaker's
Philadelphia clothing house. Perhaps
he and Boss Quay are prepared to foot
the bills. Certainly the economical
president is not expected to do it him
self.
When Queen Victoria or some other
European potentate travels it is always
incognito. A modest special train will
serve their purposes fairly well. They
have a life tenure of office and do not
need any meretricious show. One can
scarcely see how the public treasury can
be made directly responsible for all this
vulgar glitter, but that it will be made
to settle the bills in some shape let no
man doubt who understands the ways of
.the "God and Morality" party—the
party Oi »U the education and all the
decency.
Headers of newspapers will remember
the way the money of the people was
"blown in" on the Pan American con
gress business. Then we had the same
fanfare, parade and blcviation that has
signalized this second tPrm swing around
the circle. *The most lavish expendi
tures signalized every phase of this
bizarre episode. The idea seemed to be
to knock as big a hole as possible into
the national treasury. When Mr. Cleve
land's administration conceived the
idea of a Pan American congress it was
undoubtedly supposed that any country
which cared to participate in this dem
onstration would pay the expenses of
its own representatives. A state dinner
or two would, one would suppose, have
covered all demands of hospitality on
the part of the United States. Not so
thought our expansive secretary of state.
Nothing would suit him but to send the
Pan American congress philandering
around the country, on a special train,
at the national expense. They were
dined and wined, and there was no end
to the prodigal outlay of the peo
ple's money. They were sent through
such a rush of dissipation that their in
dividual stomachs revolted. Tired na
ture called for a rest; and, on the piti
able petition of the much feted diplo
mates, they were permitted to return
to Washington, with their stomachs
permanently disorganized and the seeds
of gout laid in many a hardy constitu
tion.
Who authorized this Bacchanalian ex
pedition? Ths United States undoubt
edly paid for it, but why?
Things were different in the old Demo
cratic days. When Mr. Buchanan was
president, a pleasant excursion was made
down the Potomac and out to sea on the
revenue cutter Harriet Lane, under the
auspicies of Mr. Howell Cobb, at that
time secretary of the treasury. It was
a gala affair, and was graced by the pres
ence of the beautiful and accomplished
Miss Harriet Lane herself, at that time
the lady of the White House. At the
next cabinet meeting, Mr. Buchanan
turned to his secretary and said, "By
the way, Mr. Cobb, who pays for the ex
penses of the trip of the Harriet Lane?"
Mr. Cobb showed a little embarrassment
at this question, and Mr. Buchanan fol
lowed up his attack by the remark, "If
you will kindly furnish me an estimate
of the cost it will give me great pleasure
to give you my check for the amount."
When that cabinet meeting adjourned
Mr. Cobb loet no time in footing up the
bills for the little jaunt out of his own
pocket.
Times are sadly changed now. Mr.
Tom Fitch's ingenious plan of blowing
the surplus in has become the shib
boleth of the Republican party. The
money of the people is poured out freely
on every pretext, and the vulgar mag
nificence of the possessors of place and
power is flaunted offensively in the laces
of their masters.
The Herald is in receipt oi a letter
from Huntsburg, Geauga county, Ohio,
enclosing stamps for a copy of this pa
per, in order to get terms of subscrip
tion, and our correspondent says: "I
"and my family have decided, this fall,
"to locate permanently in Southern Cal
ifornia." In a poscriptum he says:
"Ice was three-quarters of an inch thick
"here, yesterday, by actual measure
"ment." This letter is dated the 7th
inst., and it shows wbata lovely climate
the people of the middle states are
blessed with.
COMING REVELATIONS—THE TAXPAY
ERS' PROTECTIVE ASSOCIATION,
The taxpayers of Los Angeles may
prepare themselves for some rather
lively sensations in the sweet by and by.
When the Hkraldcalled their attention
to the fact that they had been robbed, it
knew perfectly well what it was talking
about; and, in its own good time, it will
make good its assertions. We have
spoken about a foroed balance in the
books of the auditor's office, and we
will, in good time, show that just about
$32,000 of the county'B money has gone
where the woodbine twineth under that
head. This journal is in no hurry in
making its charges good. It takes time
and patience to unravel a sinuous plot
like that of which the people of Los An
geles county have been made the vic
tims. They have had to pay taxes un
conscionable in amount, and to realize
that this money has not only been ex
travagantly expended but stolen is
a little more than the average
taxpayer can stand with equanimity.
We would earnestly impress upon our
people the necessity of joining the Tax
payers' Protective association. There is
scarcely a limit to the good this organi
zation can do. Its mere name is a guar
antee of increased responsibility on the
part of the officials who have charge of
our city and county affairs. When men
in authority learn that they are sub
jected to a careful scrutiny they will be
careful to walk in the straight and nar
row path. Inattention to the plain
duties of the citizen has brought our per
capita of taxation up to an appalling
figure. It now amounts to within
a fraction of $20 for every man,
woman and child in this city.
Will any one pretend that such a pro
digious figure is needed to maintain
our modest government? This terrible
total takes no account of the indirect
taxes which the citizen has to pay. It
is independent of such delightful little
incidents as the widening of Los An
geles street at a point where there is no
public necessity for such an act, in
which flagitious operation it is proposed
to take a man's property and make him
pay for being despoiled. Such acts of
bold violence will become very frequent
if the people do not take a determined
stand. They have their remedy and
protection in vitalizing the Taxpayers'
Protective association. All who join in
this movement may be sure that they
will protect their own pockets at the
same time that they will render a sub
stantial service to the public.
Here we have a conjuncture in our
local concerns where we need a lorg
pull, a strong pull and a pull altogether.
A FINANCIAL SLOUGH OF DESPOND.
The financial outlook, as disclosed by
the Harrison administration, is far from
encouraging. Far, very far, indeed. It
would look to a disinterested person
very much as if political wreckers were
getting in their work at the national
capital. We have heretofore adverted
tathefact that Director Leech, of the
mint, is busy assuring the public that
there is no cause for alarm in the large
shipments of gold to Europe. This, of
course, is veiy reassuring to those who
do not think. The Republican politi
cians will labor earnestly to convince
the people that the disappearance of the
surplus is a matter of no moment—that
we are, in fact, better off without a sur
plus. It is quite evident that Secre
tary Foster does not take that
view of the matter. He is at
his wits'end to get matters in shape to
make something like a presentable re
port on the assembling of congress next
winter. By altering the system of book
keeping inaugurated by Secretary Man
ning he will be arde to make some forced
balances and to hoodwink a few fools.
Men of sense will understand and de
spise the stratagem. As a matter of
fact, the secretary is in desperate straits.
He proposes to reissue some twenty
millions of fractional silver currency
which had been retired. On the
first of September $50,000,000 of
the 4}i per cents will fall due.
His plan is to extend instead of pay
ing this obligation of the government.
Everyone knows how regularly the an
nouncement was made of a monthly
reduction of the national debt under
Mr. Cleveland's administration. All
this has been bravely changed since Mr.
Harrison and his Fifty-first congress
got down to solid work. Instead of the
eight to ten millions of monthly reduc
tion of the national debt the boot will
soon be on the other leg. The McKin
ley bill is as yet a mere experiment from
the standpoint of revenue. It has re
leased fifty or sixty million dollars of
the national revenue which was derived
from sugar, and in addition it will have
to pay ten million dollars or upwards of
sugar bounties. Thus we are confronted
with a present threatening aspect of our
national finances and probably much
worse remains behind. The people of
the United States are now convinced
that in electing Harrison president they
took a leap in the dark, and that it has
landed them in a financial Niagara.
They will never again be guilty of the
signal folly of allowing the Republi can
party to block the wheels of progress
and to keep the country in the ruts of a
war tariff which has been made infin
itely more oppressive and insulting by
the frills added to it by the McKinley
bill.
The editor of Le Progres has a card
elsewhere in which he arraigns the Rev.
Thompson for invidious reflections on
the people of the south of France in his
lecture on Immigration Sunday night.
It is in truth a somewhat hazardous
thing to select a most interesting race
for wholesale proscription. People from
the south of France have been very ma
terial factors in the development of Los
Angeles county and Southern California.
The government of the United Stateß
was sufficiently interested in the pecu
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD- TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 12, 1891.
liar development of that unique land as
to lead it to send a commission there to
examine its system of irrigation and other
economical features. Take the Basques
and other citizens from the south of
France from Southern California and we
shall have missed much of our prosper
ity. The good taste and good sense of
singling out any special race or class for
attack may always be questioned. It is
hard to see any good in it, and it is sure
to engender heart-burnings. With all
deference to the Rev. Thompson, the
Herald begs to suggest that any immi
gration laws adopted by the government
of the United States should apply impar
tially to all foreigners.
Speculations about changes of cli
mate in different sections of the country
are very frequent, and they are justified
by the noteworthy meteorological de
velopments of the last decade. The
telegraph has advised us of the ravages
of frost this spring even in Delaware.
It will be remembered that in that
state last year the peach crop was a
total failure. It will be even more
complete this year, if present advices
are to he trusted. The peach is going
altogether out of vogue in Missouri.
People are tired planting it, the crop is
so uncertain and the life of the tree so
capricious. Every passing year con
firms the fact that California is des
tined to be the fruit-producing region
of the United States—in fact, the dis
tinctive source of supply.
It is a bad thing to be poor and friend
less. The captain of the Robert and
Minnie graced the theater last night
with his rugged, Jack Tar nonchalance,
Mr. Burt, the agent of the Remington
arms company, is staying at a hotel,
while the four wretched sailors who
were employed to do able seaman's work
about the schooner ate in jail. When
these sailors shipped on the Robert and
Minnie they supposed they were bound
for Humboldt to get a load of lumber.
It is a great crime to be poor and ob
scure, it seems. Captain Dill, the man
who piloted the Itata, has given bail and
gone back to San Diego. Poor Jack's lot
is a hard one at best. Verily the admin
istration of the law in California is a
queer game.
There seems to be some conflict of
opinion as to whether the Charleston's
chase after the Itata means business or
a mere blind. Her maximum speed is
eighteen knots an hour, and she has
only been steaming at the rate of fifteen
knots. However, the general trend of
Washington advices, and the instruc
tions issued to the American consuls be
tween here and Chile, would indicate an
earnest purpose to capture the Itata.
Whether this can be done without a
brush with the Esmeralda remains to be
seen. The Charleston's delay of a whole
night at San Pedro seems inexplicable.
For the benefit of the tenderfoot we
will simply state that in Southern Cali
fornia May is climatically the least at
tractive month in the year. Why this
should be so we do not know, but true
it is. Tliere is more fog in this magical
month than in any other in the whole
twelve. There is nothing to complain
about in our May weather. It is gener
ally invigorating, and double blankets
are an absolute necessity at night, but
there is in it less of the liberal and gar
ish sunshine of Southern California than
at any other season of the year.

Their Little Scheme Failed to Work.
A petty attempt at economy on the part
of two women shoppers failed of success
in a New York restaurant the other day.
One of the pair ordered a cup ot tea, and
on tasting it said it was too strong and
asked for a cup of hot water. The other
said she wanted nothing, but when the
hot water arrived the shoppers mixed it
with the tea and each drank a cup. Their
glee was great until the waiter gave them
a check, on which the water was charged
for at nearly double the price of the tea.

A STRANGE CONTRAST.
THE NAVAL AUTHORITIES' PECU
LIAR TACTICS.
Diligenoe in Sending Out Orders Offset by
Tardiness in the Exeoution Thereof.
The Charleston's Wild Goose Chase.
Washington, May 11. —Secretary Tra
cy this afternoon sent out word that he
bad nothing to say about the Chilean
vessel Itata, or the Charleston. Other
officials iv the naval department are
equally reticent. The official mind of
the department is evidently iv dread
that a possible unguarded admission to
1 a reporter might result in the disclosure
■of the plan of campaign, in which the
! entire available naval force in the Pa
-1 cific is arraying agaiust a steamer whose
j warlike character has nolj yet been
j demonstrated. Certainly the govern
ment appears to be making extraordi
i nary efforts to recapture the Itata, for
jin addition to cabling Admirals Brown
1 and McCann to head off the runaway
before she reaches Chilean waters, it is
understood that instructions have been
sent to the United States consular offi
cers at all points between California and
Chile, where the Itata could reach, to
promptly advise the naval officers of
! her movements if she is sighted.
In strange contrast to this exhibition
'of zeal, is the course of the Charleston,
which is in chase of the runaway. This
i vessel sailed from San Francisco early
1 Saturday morning, bound south. She
is an eighteen-knot vessel, and last night
should have been 650 miles down the
coast, or near Cape San Lucas, where
the Chilean insurgent warship Esme
ralda is supposed to be lying in wait for
the Itata. But instead of coursing this
distance, the Charleston got about half
way and then went to anchor overnight.
Later advices show that she was last
seen just above the Mexican boundary
line. Such officers as have an opinion
they feel free to express, say the Charles
ton's movements can be explained in
two ways; either the department be
lieves the Itata is lying somewhere off
the coast of California, or it has no in
tention of seizing the vessel unless her
presence is made unpleasantly noticeable
within easy reach.
A QUESTION OF DIPLOMACY.
The motive for such an attitude by
| the government, as indicated in the last
| theory, is in brief that it might not be
j good diplomacy for the United States to
go too far in the direction of hostility
towards the Chilean insurgents. The
! duties devolving upon a friendly govern
ment in cases such as these have never
been finally and clearly enunciated by
the authorities iv international law. but
it can be safely assumed that in the op
erations of the United States marshal in
seizing the Itata and the Robert and
Minnie, and in the pursuit of the Itata,
as long as she was in United States
waters, our government has already
shown what the Geneva arbitration in
the Alabama case has declared to be
due diligence.
MEXICO IN THE SWIM.
City of Mexico, May 11. —Foreign
Minister Mariscal says all the necessary
steps have been taken so that when the
Itata reaches any Mexican port she wfll
not be allowed to, land.
A Great Fight.
Jersey City, N. J., May 11. —A great
fight between Jimmy Larkins, of Jersey
City, and Jimmy Hagan, of Philadel
phia, was decided this evening in favor
of the former. Jack Fogarty threw up
the sponge for Hagan in the fourteenth
round, ami the referee, Jerre Dunn,
awarded the fight to the Jersey man,who
thus won the 122-pound championship
of tho granite association and a $1500
purse. »
Parnell and the Paris Funds.
London, May 11.—The MeCarthyite
members adopted resolutions today to
■ the effect that since Parnell refuses to
comply with any suggestions as to the
releasing of the Paris funds, his col
leagues are forced to believe that he is
opposed to applying these funds to the
relief of evicted tenants. Therefore it
has been decided to call a convention in
Ireland.
Distribution of the Hebrew Race.
Some highly interesting information has
been published recently by M. Leroy Beau
lieu, of Paris. This author, after long re
search, now gives to the public the results
of his inquiry as to the geographical dis
tribution of tlie Hebrew race. Neversince
the beginning of the Christian era has it
been so wide! y scattered as at present. Yet of
the 8,000,000 living Israelites 4,000,000 have
their homes in one country—Russia. There
j are in Austria, 1,700,000; in Germany,
600,000; in England, 100,000; in France,
80,000; in Italy, 50,000, and in European
Turkey, 120,000. As far north as Sweden
' and Norway the Hebrews are ttm. In the
whole of Asia there are only abont 300,000,
most of whom are in Asia Minor, Syria and
Palestine, with a few thousands in Persia,
• India and China. The Hebrew population
of the United States is placed at 260,000.
