FRIDAY, MAY 88, 1891.
■Persons who take tbe Los Angeles
Daily Herald in Southern California
«nd 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.
The death of Judge Alphonso Taft re
moves from our midst a gentleman who
has occupied with credit very conspicu
ous posts in the government of the
United States, including those of secre
tary of war and minister of the United
States at the courts of St. Petersburg and
Vienna. He was one of the most distin
guished citizens of Cincinnati, a city
which is unusually opulent in men of
"Taxpayer" in other columns calls
attention to a number of intolerable
grievances from which tbe people of Los
Angeles suffer. The offensive handling
of garbage, the filthy condition of our
streets and our unnecessarily impure
water are standing grievances, and the
fact that, like the poor, we have had
them always with us, does not mitigate
their enormity in the slightest degree.
Our water ought to be conveyed in
securely covered ditches and should be
filtered,our garbage ought to be handled
with some regard to decency and the
public health, and our streets ought to
be kept clean. As our correspondent
correctly says, it is the duty of the coun
cil to see that these things are done.
That was a fearful cyclone that swept
away a little settlement near Mexico.
Missouri, on Wednesday. When a cyclone
lifts up an iron roller, weighing 1200
pounds, and breaks it in pieces, we need
not marvel that men and women were
caught in its wild embrace and dashed
to death against flying houses and up
rooted trees; nor that a baby was
snatched from its father's arms and car
ried half a mile away. But the wonder
is that the infant seems to have escaped
with its life. This deadly cyclone is, as
far as heard from, responsible for killing
outright some fifteen people and maim
ing many others. How thankful ought
the people of this section be when they
contemplate such fatal visitations from
a land that is exempt from fatal c\ clones
and destructive tornadoes!
It is not consoling to the pride of
-either the soldier, diplomatist, scholar or
philosopher that the interest in the
Jackson-Coibett mill yesterday eclipsed
that felt in any warlike, international or
scientific event which was on the tapis
«n the stage of the world's affairs. It is
a sign that the gross and material in
•this work-a-day world has got the upper
hand in a most unmistakable manner.
The old Olympian spirit of the Greeks
and the arena impulse of the colosseum
has captured the American people bod
ily. This is emphatically the day of the
physical cult. Brain gives place to
brawn, and a successful roustabout in a
baseball game is assured of a larger in
come than a professor of mathematics.
This is in line with the material devel
opment of the age, in which a success
ful brewer attains millions, while ajpoet
of the standing of Longfellow or Oliver
Wendell Holmes could only hope to
draw a meagre pittance from devotion to
the shrine of Parnassus.
The showers of the past few days have
done little or no damage to grain or hay.
, /.)n_ the other hand the fruit trees have
been benefited. Whilst May is not us
ually one of our rain-months, it is often
overcast, cold and showery. From &
copy of the Los Angeles Star, dated
May 27, 1853, we learn that a very heavy
downpour of rain, lasting several days,
had occurred during the week. The
traditional idea of May cannot always
be translated to Los Angeles. With ex
ceptions, it is generally a disagreeable
month, and people who take down their
stoves in April will often have to put
them up again in May. But in sum
ming up the weather-faults of May here
this year, we should not iorget that it
has been a very cold and stormy month
in the eastern states. A snow squall
passed over New Jersey and New York
on the 6th. and frosts and chilling rains
have been prevalent from Massachusetts
bay to Lake Superior during all this
•'merry month of May."
The Itata affair has very signally em
phasized the fact that the great news
gathering agencies of thiß country have
facilities for getting accurate informa
tion considerably in advance of the gov
ernment at Washington. The Associated
Press, for instance, has been more accur
ately and more promptly informed upon
the incidents of the great chaße of the
Chilean ship and the movements of her
consort than the war department at
Washington. News from official sources
is slowly gathered and leisurely for
warded, but the press associations are
alert in their business, and as time is of
the first importance to them they get
their information to the public by the
most expeditions methods available.
We are inclined to believe that there is
some truth in the press announcement
that the representatives of the Chilean
insurgents in Paris have taken steps to
arrange with the United States about
surrendering the Itata on demand. The
reason for doing co would be to throw
the question of violation of neutrality
into the courts, where tbe more momen
tous question of belligerent rights would
be necessarily involved. If the courts
should adjudicate the point favorably to
the Itata, it would be of vast conse
quence to the congressional party.
There is something very captivating
in the way the projectors of the third
party movement assume that they are
about to pour a cornucopia of blessings
on tbe people of the United States. In the
breezy sweep of their assumptions there
is much that is suggestive of
the Three Tailors of Tooley street, who
undertook to speak in the name of the
people of England. Disgusted with the
hypocritical pretensions of the Republi
can party,the amiable and not at all mod
est gentlemen who assembled at Cincin
nati, have undertaken to ignore the con
sistent and admirable record of the
Democratic party, which has been as
true to the real interests of the masses
as the needle to the pole. On every
popular issue the Democratic p<»rty has
taken the right stand. It has
been noticed by the Associated
Press agents and the correspondents
generally that the representation from
the south at this Cincinnati gathering
has been exceptionally small. The only
reference to the south has been in the
case of the taking up of a subscription to
pay the expenses home of a lot of colored
gentlemen from South Carolina, who
seem to be unable to cover the distance
without this eleemosynary assistance.
The meaning of this phase of the con
vention is that the south is self-poised
and invulnerable. That section will
stand by the Democratic party now as
in the past. Constitutional and eco
nomical and responsible government is
oo dear to that]people to permit them
to indulge in any extravagant vaearies
at this late day. The "solid south" is a
reassuring fact for the Democracy in the
next presidential campaign, at least.
This is not truer than that the real
center of the strength of this new move
ment is in the western and northwest
ern states. The farmer has been awak
ened to the injustice done to him and
to the nation by the fantastic tariff ex
cesses of the Republican party. He
finds himself ground as between the
upper and the nether millstone. The
Republican farmer realizes with great
bitterness of heart that all his afflic
tions are due to those with whom he
has affiliated in the past. To employ a
strong comparison, he feels that he has
been slain in the house of his friends.
He has to endure a double agony—to
know that he has been wronged and re
alize that he has been hoodwinked as
well. As he contemplates the stead
ily accumulating mass of his indebted
ness —a mortgage liability absolutely
overwhelming —he is enraged by ac
counts of the rapidly augmenting wealth
of the monocrats of the east. He has
at last opened his eyes to the truth, and
he finds that he has been cozzened and
As a consequence, the western and
northwestern farmer of Republican pro
clivities is going to have nothing more
to do with his old time party. In lowa,
Wisconsin, Kansas, Minnesota, Indiana,
Illinois and even Ohio, he is through
with that organization. He will join
the new party in sufficient numbers to
paralyze tbe Republican party. The
McKinley bill has decreed this memor
able political divorce.
On the other hand, the Democratic
fanner of that section occupies an en
tirely different position. His party has
steadily and staunchly stood in with the
masses, both on the tariff, the coinage
and the labor questions. During Mr.
Cleveland's administration every civic
virtue was illustrated. A rigid and
honest conduct of the government
created a surplus which Democrats
deprecated, but which could not
be avoided unless the war and
post war-tariffs were reduced. They
tried, on just and moderate lines, to re
duce these tariffs, but were prevented
by Republican marplots. They did all
they could, however, and they refrained
from stealing the surplus. Nearly all
the votes which the measures for exclud
ing the Chinese and for the free coinage
of silver received in the house of repre
sentatives came from Democrats. The
party has in every instance Bhown its
unequivocal and loyal devotion to every
distinctive aspiration of the masses to
day, yesterday and the day before—and
back to a day whereof the memory of
man runneth not to the contrary.
As a result, the Democratic farmer of
the west and northwest will stay by his
party, while a large proportion of the Re
publican Ifarmers will leave theirs and
cleave unto the People's party. As an
inevitable corollary, the Democratic
party, in 1892, with the south then, as
heretofore, a Democratic unit, will come
near achieving such a monumental vic
tory as that which seated Franklin
Pierce in the White House in 1852.
At the same time that the Farmers'
Alliance, the Knights of Labor and
kindred organizations were assembled
at Cincinnati, a Trans-Mississippi com
mercial convention was being held in
Denver, in which the southern states of
the Gulf were splendidly represented,
not only in numbers but character.
Mayor Shakspeare, of New Orleans,
was conspicuous in that body. Our
readers are familiar with the principles
it formulated. The Democratic party is
enthusiastic in its identification with
the demands of that body. It wants free
coinage of silver. Five-sixths of the
Democrats of the house of representa
tives of the Fifty-second congress will be
with them on that proposition. It de
mands the improvement of the Missiß
sippi river, and the creation of a deep
water harbor in the gulf. Democrats are
with them there, and Los Angeles Dem
ocrats are willing to throw in Wilming
ton, on the Southern California coast, sis
another harbor that ought to be im
In line, the Democratic party is sound
and honest on all propositions now be
fore the people. It will consequently
retain its membership and largely in
crease it from the Republican element
which is dissatisfied with the party of
great moral ideas, and unwilling to fra
ternize with a will o' the wisp move
ment, by whatsoever name it may be
called. The stars fought not more po
tently for Sisera than do all the acci
dents of politics group themselves in
favor of the Democratic party.
The last financial circular of Henry
Clews & Co., while not so sanguine as
many of its immediate predecessors, is
still hopeful of the future. It attributes
the drain of gold from this country to
the newly adopted policy of Russia,
which has had deposits of that metal in
European banks amounting to from
$100,000,000 to $125,000,000, which she
is now withdrawing. J.he circular says
that "recent large exports of gold have
"been due not only to our heavy uiatur
"ing obligations on account of special
"importations made in anticipation of
"the operation of the new tariff duties,
"but also to the remittances of foreign
"banking balances resting here for em
"ployment." The following portions of
the circular are of general interest, and
we reproduce them in full:
On one point we may quite safely be
confident, that, in spite of the shallow
prophecies about the loss of gold threat
ening serious danger from the operation
of the new silver act, neither the gold
already exported nor any further early
amounts that may possibly follow, can
be fraught with any more serious incon
venience than a temporary stringency in
the local money market. Whatever
may come of our silver currency, our
stock of gold is now so large, that at
worst it would require years to bring
about the depreciation of the current
value of silver money now so hastily
predicted; and, in the meantime, we
shall have plenty of time to correct any
errors of legislation that experience
may prove we have made.
It does not seem to be sufficiently ap
preciated that, within recent years, a
very important change has occurred in
the distribution of gold, so far
as respects tbe United States. Be
tween the years 1862 and 1877 inclusive,
we made a net export of $585,000,000 of
gold; whilst during the period 1878 to

Within the last thirteen during which
the export of that metal has exceeded
the import. With such a large and pro
gressive accumulation of this metal, it
surely cannot be such an alarming cir
cumstance that we have exported some
$32,000,000 since the beginning of April,
and especially when there is such a clear
prospect that the next harvest will put
us so largely in a creditor relation to
Europe as to bring back to us a large
portion of the cash remittances we are
now making. During the week ending
Saturday we shipped over $8,000,000
gold, making a total of over $41,000,000
