WEDNESDAY. MAY 13, 1891.

Mexico get all the important local and
telegraphic news from twenty-four to
thirty-six hours in advance of the San
Francisco papers.
When Benjamin Harrison again gets
back to Washington the people of the
United States will draw a breath of re
lief. His trip across the continent was
the apotheosis of the commonplace. If
he has made a single remark that a very
inferior "boom" editor could not have
made more felicitously we cannot recall
it, and probably our readers cannot.
The court journals have been brimful
of adulation, and have slopped over on
the little man; but, when all is done, a
forty-third schoolmaster, under similar
circumstances, could have laid over the
inheritor of his grandfather's hat in en
ergy and appositeness. Eternal twaddle
about the flag and the brashest taffy
were the main—indeed the only—staples
of his conversational and oratorical itin-
erary. The Hoosier president will re
turn to Washington a smaller man--if
that be possible—than when he left
The extremely irregular lines upon
which arrests have been made in this
Itata and Robert and Minnie embroglio
call for special attention. The Itata was
interviewed in courtly fashion and al
lowed to proceed on her mission of de
struction and infraction of American
neutrality laws. The only persons who
seem to have been seriously incommoded
by the law officers of the United States
have been the poor sailors who were
shipped ostensibly to go to Humboldt
and handle a cargo of lumber, It seems,
however, to be an indisputable fact that
the Robert and Minnie was towed down
to San Pedro and to the Santa
Catalina islands by a tugboat belonging
to the Spreckels brothers. The Spreck
els brothers also supplied the Itata with
coal and stores. A great many inquir
ing persons would like to know why the
poor Jack Tars are in jail, while the
Spreckels brothers and the captain of
the Robert and Minnie are allowed to
walk about ecot free. This is a most
modern instance of "now you see it and
now you don't;" and it is entirely the
most perfect illustration of the old
adage that "the case being altered, that
alters the case."
It would be well for the people of Los
Angeles to cultivate a thorough loyalty
to their own locality. It is a somewhat
remarkable circumstance that since the
death of the late General Phineas Ban
ning, this city and county get abso
lutely no recognition from the general
government. General Banning was a
host in himself. As long as he lived
Wilmington harbor was sure to be at
tended to. Since his death, things have
lagged as regards governmental appro
priations. Fortunately for the prospect of
carrying to completion the plans of the
government engineers on whose reports
the original national expenditures were
made at tiiat point, the St. Louis
Terminal railway people have interested
themselves in the development of Wil
mington harbor. If Angelefios stand in
with them, the Messrs. Kerens, Chand
ler, Hobart and their associates, will
see that the plans for the improvement
of this harbor are carried out. All they
ask is that the people who will be bene
fited shall co-operate with them. It is
heartily to be hoped that our citizens
will lend willing aid to those who are
able to pull so powerfully at the other
end of the line. It is high time that we
should throw off our inertia and get
down to solid work.
Just now there seems to be a rather
lively episode between United States
Marshal Gard and Collector of Customs
Berry, of San Diego. The latter indi
vidual has had himself extensively in
terviewed in the San Diego press, and
his send-off to his fellow federal official
is not, so to speak, gracious. As a mat
ter of fact, it does not need that one
should be of an atrabilious turn of
mind to be somewhat critical as to the
acts of both of these officials. Between
them, their bungling may result in
a sensational international incident
in which blood may flow as
freely as water. A long cruise,
such as the Charleston has just started
in on, is quite expensive, if nothing
more serious should result. A little
vigilance on the part of either of
these United States officials would have
prevented all this. It will require a
great deal of eloquence to convince the
people of Southern California, and of
the departments at Washington, that it
would not have been easy either for
Berry or Gard to have dropped down
into the hold of the Itata, and to have
seen there the war-like character of the
vessel. Not to have done this by either
or both seems to loom up in the signifi
cance ol a grave crime. If blood should
be spilled as an incident of this remiss
ness of duty it will be difficult
indeed for either of these gentlemen to
claim clean hands. Berry thinks that
Gard should have looked into the hold
of the Itata. Gard thinks that Berry
should have discharged that function.
The Hebald thinks that the duty was
incumbent on both, and that the failure
of either and of both to discharge this
imperative obligation leaves a stain on
the government officials of Southern
California. The fact that there has been
a great deal of comedy in this interna
tional episode so far by no means im
plies that it may not be rounded up
with a tragedy.
The census of the United States is a
thinj; fearfully and wonderfully made.
The Herald, first of the California
journals, called attentiou to its mon
strosities as developed under the foster
ing care of Mr. Robert P. Porter. Hii
allotment of 690 acres in potatoes for the
three states of Washington, Oregon and
California, struck us as a clief d'auvrt
of statistical ingenuity and energy. We
preferred to take the most pleasing view
of this official exhibit. As we knew that
six hundred carloads of potatoes had
been shipped from Los Angeles county
alone—one of the fifty-four counties of
this state —during the past year, we
thought it better to call attention to the
remarkably prolific character of a soil
which could chronicle such miracles of
production from such a limited area.
Our esteemed contemporary, the San
Francisco Chronicle, took the matter up,
and, arguing on the lines established by
the Herald, it succeeded in extorting
a reply from the mighty and obfuscated
and obfuscating Porter. The fact is that
Porter is a painstaking ass. He is im
bued with the spirit of the Kentucky
witness; and, having sworn that the
horse was sixteen feet high—or rather,
the contra of that proposition—he sticks
to it. His remarks are of the character
which confuse counsel. Puzzle-headed
in his methods, he is equally puzzle
headed in his arguments, and the Chron
icle easily knocks him out.
As the fast thronging bulletins of the
census reach us the reflection is borne
in on any intelligent man that the much
vaunted millenium will be madelmpos
sible under, and that the world will be
submerged by, a flood of prolixity.
There is really no limit to the expanding
volumes and tomes and rafts of statistics
that are piling up over the average
searcher after truth. The gray matter
of the brain of 'lie ordinary student is
made aweary trying to take cognizance
of the billions of so-called facts that are
thrust upon it. The fact that they are
really not facts complicates the problem
beyond endurance. VVe are distrustful
of our Biblical recollections, but we think
it was Solomon himself who said that
there is nothing new under the sun, and
i that of the making of many books there
is no end.
Some wise man of the modern era,who
has kept in mind the steadily multiply
ing volume of learning in all lines, has
said that the only recourse of much
vexed humanity is in index learning.
In fact, the way small people are forcing
themselves on the attention of man
kind, in view of the swelling pro
portions of encyclopedias and bio
graphical dictionaries, he will have to
be a very important personage indeed
who can claim three lines in any kind
of a commemorative publication one
hundred years from today. As to the
mass of facts which will have been accu
mulated by that time it makes one's head
dizzy only to think of them.
In this view of the matter it is cer
tainly a crime to turn a prolix fellow
like Porter loose upon a great country.
He is piling up cloud-capped towers of
false statistics which are not only not
luminous but offensively voluminous.
He is the great modern imitator of the
celebrated Italian historian Guicciar
dini. That gentleman's memorabilia of
Italian affairs were of a character so
minute that men hid themselves in
caves when it was suggested that they
should read his works. A touching
tribute to their voluminousness was
given by an Italian convict who had
been sentenced to the galleys for
life. The mercilul judge, however, gave
an instance of the kindness of his heart
by allowing the condemned an alterna
tive proposition. If he would consent
to read Guicciardini's history of Italy,
the sentence would be remitted. The
poor wretch grasped eagerly at this ave
nue of escape. He persevered bravely
at the history until he came to the one
hundred books of the siege of Pisa,
when he threw down the bulky tome
and demanded to be led back to his oars.
Hard will be the task of going over
the illimitable volumes of Porter's cen
sus, but the hardship will be intensified
a hundred-fold by the mass of unavail
able rot that will make his census abso
lutely valueless. It would be money in
the pockets of the people of the United
States to destroy this worthless enumer
ation, and have the whole thing done
over again. Bulky tomes of statistics
are of themselves a thing to be
dreaded, but when their bulkiness is only
rivaled by their unreliability it is a piti
ful thing indeed to have the people of
the United States taxed for such botch
work. The Chronicle, following in the
wake of the Herald, has given the coup
de grace to Porter's census.
The bids were opened yesterday for a
site for a ten company military post at
San Diego. There were eleven bids all
told. Recent events have shown that
there ought to be a fortified post at San
Diego and a respectable garrison. There
is one peculiar thing about the matter,
however, that ought not to pass without
remark. The government of the United
States has already a considerable mili
tary reservation at Ballast Point, which
commands the entrance to the harbor
of San Diego. Here is where
the ten company post ought to
be stationed, and the defensive
fortifications ought to embrace Point
Loma, which would give a com
manding sweep of the Pacific ocean.
We fail to see why the great adaptabil
ity of the grounds already owned by the
government should not be taken into
the count. The Coronado Beach com
pany have made a number of liberal of
fers to the government—amongst the rest
six hundred acres two miles from the
line at $100 an acre. Thiß land would
have been dear at nothing five or six
years ago, and it requires a very fervid
imagination to make it of much
value now, particularly as the
government has already an ex
tensive reservation of its own, most ad
mirably located for the purpose. To
station a ten company garrison, or any
garrison, on the peninsula would be only
to cut off its retreat in the event of a hot
attack. The Herald believes that San
Diego should be thoroughly fortified,
but that the expenditures should be in
the line of the greatest possible effi
ciency. The fact that the government
already owns land admirably adapted
for purposes of the defence of San Diego
harbor should not be overlooked. Bal
last Point and Point Loma are the true
points both of defence and offence.
Kansas Urry, May rz. —A special from
Great Bend, Kansas, feays: Three weeks
ago O. B. Wilson,a real estate abstracter,
ex-mayor of this city and a man of high
standing in the Masonic order and
Knights of Pythias, disappeared from
here. It was said he had suddenly be
come insane and gone away to seek
medical advice. It has just been
discovered that he is an embezzler and
defaulter in the amount of at least
$00,000. He was agent of several farm
ers who were paying off mortgages, and
money placed in his hands for that pur
pose has not been put to that use. He
was also agent for several financial insti
tutions, and each of tbem suffers to
some extent.

A Bit of Good Advice to Business
A pleasing or attractive manner is not
only desirable, but it has a wonderful
effect on any individual at the first in
troduction or meeting, says the Dry
Goods Chronicle. A pleasant greeting,
a genial smile, a cheery word, a cordial
handshake—carries with it an influence
that is instantly* felt, and iv most
cases reciprocated. The sunny, cheery
men you meet, who always have
a pleasant word, do much to rub the
wrinkles from the brow of care and
make one feel as though life were worth
the living. Some imagine, in business,
that every thought, every act, must be
brought down to the cold, imperial rules
of business; that friendship, courtesy
and politeness end when the threshold
of the store is crossed. This is a great
mistake. Some men, of course, are so
constantly worried with their many trials
and troubles that they find it hard to
meet and talk cordially and pleasantly
to anybody, but no one is ever so busy
that he cannot lookupand say, "Excuse
me, please, today ; I am very busy and
cannot spare the time to talk with you,"
and say it, too, in a pleasant way.
A pleasing manner is of great value in
many ways. The story is told of a
wealthy merchant some years ago, who,
having occasion to go to a store in a
country town, was waited upon by a
young clerk who was so very courteous
and pleasing in his address that he at
tracted the attention of this shrewd mer
chant and man of affairs. He made in
quiries about the young man, and soon
offered him a position, at a large in
crease of salary, in his own business
house, in which, before many years, he
rose to a partnership.
How many failures are there in trade
and in life due to a chill, morose exte
rior and that brusque manner which
one so often encounters? If people
could be brought to realize the influ
ence of a bright look, a kind word, how
many dull and cheerless lives would be
made bright, how many homes would
be made happy and contented?
The Rlbulous .fu r\ men of Queensland.
The jury system appears to have its de
fects in Queensland as well as in other
civilized countries. Recently a young man
was on trial at Gympic, and when the jury
retired to consider the evidence they saw
the bailiff lock up the prisoner and go
away for a drink. The "twajve good men
and true" forthwith climbed out of a win
dow and went to a saloon, where they were
found when the judge sent to learn the
reason of their delay iv reaching a verdict

Another Orand Ovation Qiven the Ex-
President at Buffalo—The Billion Dol
lar Congress Scored. ,
Buffalo, May 12.—The Cleveland
Democracy, Buffalo's foremost political
organization, opened their new club
house this evening, with ex-President
Cleveland as the guest and speaker of
the occasion. He was greeted at his ar
rival with the wildest cheers, long con
tinued and often repeated. Cleveland
responded to the address of welcome
with a speech delivered with great earn
estness and received enthusiastically.
Mr. Cleveland said in part: "I be
lieve the most threatening figure which
today stands in the way of the safety of
our government and the happiness of
our people, is the reckless and wicked
extravagance in public expenditures. It,
is the most fatal of all the deadly brood
born of governmental perversion. It
hides beneath its wings the betrayal of
the peoples' trust, and holds powerless
in its fascinating glance the peoples'
will and conscience. It brazenly
exhibits today a billion-dollar congress.
But lately a large surplus remained in
the people's public treasury, alter meet
ing all the expenditures then by no
means so economical This condition
was presented to the American people
as positive proof that the burden of tax
ation was unjust, because unnecessary :
and yet while the popular protest is
still heard, the harpy of public extrav
agance devours the surplus and impu
dently calls upon the staggering victims
to bring still larger supplies
within reach of its insatiate appe
tite. A few short years ago the
pension roll, amounting to $53,000,000,
was willingly maintained by patriotic
citizens ; today public extravagance de
crees that three times that sum shall be
drawn from the people upon the pre
text that the expenditure represents the
popular love of the soldier."
Mr. Cleveland also touched upon the
increase in the river and harbor appro
priations, and spoke of it as a bare-faced
subsidy let loose as a marauder, which,
in company with its vicious
tariff partner, bears its pilfered
benefit to the households of the favored,
st ilish interests. Let. us as we push on
in our campaign of education, especially
impress upon our countrymen the les
son which teaches that public extrav
agance is a deadly,dangerous thing; that
frugality and economy are honorable;
that the virtue and watchfulness of the
people are the surest safeguards against
abuses in their government, and that
those who profess to serve their fellow
citizens in public place, must be faithful
to their trust.
After the exercises in the assembly hall
Cleveland, assisted by prominent Dem
ocrats of the city and county, held a re
ception in the drawing-room, to which
the general public was admitted.

And They Talked as Girls Do at That
Lightly Loquacious Age.
Kvcry one has overheard incidental con
versations held between girls of sixteen,
when they are just beginning to assume a
mature knowledge of the world. The main
purpose of each is always to surprise tho
other by careless remarks of things she has
recently seen or heard. They are quite
self conscious, and each thinks of what
she wants to say much more intently than
Bhe does of what the other is saying to her.
Two very stylish girls of this type met
in a Fifth avenue stage recently. Both
blushed, and ns the new arrival in the om
nibus drew off her glove and exhibited a
unique ring while feeling in her purse for
her faro, the other coughed nervously and
turned over her portemonnaie so that its
gold monogram was visible. When the
newcomer had got her fare paid the two
smiled at each other again and declared
that the unexpected meeting was most
fortunate. Then they both coughed a lit
tle, and took quick glances at each other's
hats. The subsequent conversation went
in about the following style:
"I'm looking for a gold lead pencil with
an amethyst in the end."
"M-m! I've got one with a ruby."
"M-m! Didn't you get tired of the opera
this winter?"
"M-m! I got a new poodle from Paris
this week and I don't know what to do
with him. Eight dogs are more than I can
"M-ml I think a man I know has got
such an absurd collection. Girls' boot
heels mounted on silver pedestals."
"M-ml I know a man who wears gold
buttons on his waistcoat. So foolish."
"M-m! Have you heard about my acci
"Was driving tandem with Tony New
market, and had a spill. Wasn't hurt, but
my leader kicked the pole horse in the
knee, and now I'm driving my ponies alto
gether—three abreast, you know. Why
don't you come out on the river and see
us? I'll give you a nice drive." ,
"Oh, I can't get out of town. My sculpt
ure lessons, you know. Now that my
last head was spoken of so highly by Mr.
.Jones, the art critic, I feel that I must do
all I can to get something done for the
spring exhibition."
"M-m! Did you ever see my collection
of mustaches?"
"Yes; I have eight. That's quite the
latest out our way. Other girls have col
lected, but mine are all larger, some of the
girls having to get mere boys to supply
"M-ml How's your mother?"
"Nicely. How's your father?"
"Nicely. I'm going down to buy a
"M-m! We shall go to Europe this
summer and may stay three or four years.
I want so much to live in Japan."
"M-m! I'm so glad I met you?"
"Thanks. Call, won't you?"
"Oh, yes, indeed."
"We'll have a carriage to meet you at
the station if you'll send word."
"Well, I might drive my own horses out
some morning."
One of them leaves the stage very much
confused und wondering if she has made
the hit she tried for with the one who re
mains. The latter looks after her friend,
and then is cross with herself because she
forgot to flash her new jeweled watch into
view during the brilliant conversation. It
is not certain that sixteen-year-old girls
always grow entirely out of the humorous
condition of Keif esteem herewith set forth.
