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. A RAY OF LIGHT ON A DARK SUBJECT. By degrees we are getting light upon the way in which the tremendous ex penditures piled up against the Chicago orange carnival so far surpassed the amount of the receipts. A representa tive of the Herald has dug up a mass of facts which show conclusively that the affair from beginning to end was most wretchedly managed as far as its busi ness was concerned, and that our people allowed themselves to be wheedled and overreached by the parties who had con trol of the exposition building. So lacking were our representatives in business sagacity that they allowed the parties from whom they leased the building to take entire charge of the box office and to place men of their own choosing at the door to receive the tickets, so that there was no check whatever upon the receipts. It is true that for a short time the Los Angeles managers placed a man at the door to count the tickets received, but that was scon discontinued. The tickets were not numbered, and there was therefore no means of telling how many were sold. Money in large sums seems to have been paid out without rhyme or reason, such as $9 per day to the man who lit the gas, according to one account, and $3 per day according to another. Our peo ple submitted to all sorts of charges and impositions, and left their receipts at the mercy of strangers. It is no wonder that the persons who under took the management of the Chicago orange carnival are backward about giv ing the public an itemized report of their financial stewardship. They evi dently permitted themselves to be cir cumvented on all sides by the smart Chicagoans, and are naturally loath to let the public see how they have been bamboozled. But the public are en titled to a bill of particulars in this case, and unless they get it the man agers will be subject to a more damag ing kind of criticism than they really deserve. In some newspaper offices there can be found posted up in conspicuous places a rough wood cut in which a wheelbarrow and a man lying prone upon it are the staples of the illustra tion, with the legend, above or below, "This man was talked to death." If the same idea could be adapted to a nation the United States bids fair to furnish the subject. The diminutive pub lic functionary who fills the executive chair has been thoroughly permeated with the idea that he' is a greater orator than Demosthenes, Isocrates, Cicero, Sheridan, Fox, Burke, Mirabeau or Webster. He has developed an abnor mal inclination to rush out of his white house lair and fire off speeches. The cunning politicians have discov ered the way to get at the little gentleman's collar, to employ a questionable colloquialism, and they have persuaded him that men are clam oring and children are crying for his honeyed eloquence. In the brave days of old, in American affairs, the presi dent would at rare intervals favor his fellow citizens with a few remarks from the roatruru. But Harrison bids fair to eclipse all his predecessors in this line— that is to say, if he ends as he has pro gressed thus far, he will have made more speeches during his incumbency of office than all of them put together. We are inclined to think that tiie Amer ican people will have to grin and bear it, and take their vengeance at the polls, should they ever be afforded the oppor tunity. If the English parliament should pass the bill to prohibit British subjects from killing seals in Bering sea for such time as may be designated by the queen, there will be a fair chance for the two governments to come to an amicable and permanent agreement upon the dis turbing question. If the bill passes at all, it will be passed very expeditiously. In the meantime the seal season has commenced and a number of sealing craft have started from Victoria for Bering sea. These will, whenever they are found, be overhauled by our revenue cutters, just dispatched to the sealing waters. But as it is reported that over one hundred poachers have been fitted out, it is probable that great havoc will be made amongst the seals before our cutters will reach the fisheries. If, however, the bill in parliament becomes a law at once, the poachers will soon be made short work of, for they will be pursued and caught by the American and British cruisers. The Canadians will do all in their power te retard the passage of the bill, but it is no£ believed their efforts will be effective. THE DEATH BLOW OF A GREAT PARTY. AH the third party inspiration is really largely traceable to the tariff legislation of the FifUvrfirst congress. There is no great demand for free trade in the United States. Jn fact, most Americans are in favor of a moderate protection of American industries; that is, a protec tion which shall exactly equalize the difference in wages between the Ameri can and the European 'operative, and which shall honestly maintain and stimulate production and manufactures in the United States. There are a num ber of practical and a much larger host of abstract free traders, but the latter class realize that the large obligations of the government, its actual running expenses, interest on the na tional debt, the pension list, etc., involve the collection of great sums of money, a.id that the most convenient and beneficial way to j meet these demands is in the shape of import duties so imposed as to encour age our growing industr'es. To these classes must be added a large element who believe in protection per se, and who would be in favor of imposing heavy du ties on foreign staples even if the money shonld be "blown in" on costly public improvements.' It is very likely that this class is not more numerous than the outright free traders. The last pres idential election, with its side issue of a $400,000 corruption fund, may fairly be said to have been a verdict in favor of protection, but the narrow margin by which the Republicans won ought to have caused the Republican leaders to go slow. Instead, they went wild. Very few of the American voters dreamed of increas ing the already high war and post war tariffs. They simply thought it better to stick to the principle of incidental protection, ,and many Republicans un doubtedly supposed that their leaders would try to steal some Democratic thunder, making such a brilliant flank movement as that made by the Tories on the disestablishment of the Irish church, and as D'lsraeli led on the ques tion of extended suffrage in England. Few people dreamed that such a mon strosity as the McKinley bill could be enacted into law. This famous meas ure, which has wrecked the Re publican party, is really the second increase made by that party on the abnormally high war tariff. It contains such infamous exactions as the increase of the duty on tin plate, which enhanced that manufactured specialty $1.15 a box, and which has laid an ad ditional burden on tbe canning and other productive manufactures of the United States. This scandalous impo sition was defended on the ground that it would develop the production of tin in this country. The fact was carefully kept in the background that the Mc- Kinley bill imposed no duty on block tin, which now enters the United States ires of duty, as it did before the McKinley bill was passed. Those acquainted with the facts claim that this feature of the Mc- Kinley tariff will put in the pockets of the manufacturers of tin plate—which is mainly iron with only a thin veneer ing of tin-quite $20,000,000 during the next Aye years. The people of thie country are patient to a degree, but they cannot be humbugged in such a transparent fashion. The fact is that the Republican lead ers are fairly rattled at the result of their gross subserviency to the manufac turers. Even' bo shrewd a man as the late autocrat of thejiouseof represen tatives, the Hon. Tom Reed, completely lost hia head. He had himself inter viewed in Italy a short time ago, and his views of matters and things were circulated in this country far and wide by the Aasociated Preas. He at tempted to explain the sweep ing results of the late elec tions. Amongst other reasons he ascribed the overwhelming defeat of the Republicans in their theretofore strongholds in the west by the great financial stringency brought about by the failure of the Barihgs. This rattled leader had forgotten that the Barings incident occurred after and not betfore thoae elections. The real cause of the Republican downfall was the pasaage of the McKinley bill and the arbitrary course of Reed himself as speaker of the house of representatives, which seated Republicans enough to rush through this and other infamous measures, like the Force bill, for instance, although enough patriotic Republicans were found to de feat the latter measure. The Reed rump of congress succeeded in doing enough to permanently divorce the great west from the Republican party. In last week's Afgonaut Mr. Frank M. Pixley comes to the rescue of the Re publican party on the question of pro tection. He cites the facts, which are perfectly true, that Presidents Washing ton, Jefferson, Madison and Jackson all expressed themselves in favor of the incidental protection of American in dustries. They all believed that the duties on foreign imports should be so imposed as to build up our infant man ufactures. They all thought that we should, as far as possible, make our selves the things which contributed to the comfort, necessaries and even the luxuries of life, and they all deprecated the reducing of the American laboring man to the deplorable status of his European brother. But they believed that the efforts of congress in this direc tion should be restricted to the raising of only such revenues as were necessary to the purposes of our government, eco nomically administered. Mr. Cleve land ' was elected on just such a platform in 1884. He would have been re-elected on the same plat form in 1888. This doctrine of the. il lustrious presidents named;is good Dem ocratic doctrine now. If it is honestly reaffirmed by the Democrats in their national platform in 1802 they will sweep the country. It has nothing in common with the expansive protection ism of Henry Clay, who, away back in the early thirties, advocated it for our THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 1, 1891. "infant industries." Fifty years "have elapsed since Henry Clay's persuasive voice was raised in behalf of the even at th"at time lusty bantling, "our national industries," and it appears to be more of an infant now than ever. It affects top boots, however, and fiercely curled moustachios, and wears a sword by its side, prepared to cut down anybody who shall dare to interrupt its plundering march. Well may the Republican leaders look aghast. They have themselves struck the scales from the eyes of their hereto fore blinded followers. Ready as they are to claim every good thing in the United States, from the growing grass to the low price of steel rails, as a re sult of their ridiculously partial and rob bing tariff, they know that their stale and false cries have at last lost their power of charming, and forever. The people now do their own thinking, and political spoon*pap and syllabub no longer suffice for their intellectual needs. The age of humbug and pretence, at least in this line, is over and for aye. The most destructive fire Los Angeles has experienced for over a year was that of yesterday afternoon. The loss will probably reach $70,000. But when we consider the combustibility of the neigh borhood, and the unusually high wind that prevailed at the time, it is a great wonder that the fire was kept within the limits of so small a compass. Had it crossed Seventh street, and reached over into Broadway, as it threatened to do at one time, there is no telling where it would have stopped. It would, perhaps, have cut a wide and ex tensive swath through a thickly-settled portion of the city, and the losses have reached into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. The fire department is en titled to credit for intelligent and efficient work. The bursting of hose at the fire yester day shows that much of it must have been rotten.' No time should be lost in testing the hose we have and replacing all that will not stand the maximum pressure by material that we can de pend upon. It would be a very serious matter if in the midst of a tire our de partment should suddenly be rendered helpless by the collapse of its available hose.

Manager Doyle continues to give a long entertainment at the Novelty thea tre for a very small entrance fee. His' house grows in popularity, and his show appears to be satisfactory to its patrops. A BABY IN A BOX. An Unknown Man Acts as An Ama teur Undertaker. Out on the north side of the city yes terday some people saw an old man car rying a box under his arm across a field. He stopped at a place that evidently suited his purpose and with a shovel, which he carried, dug a hole, put the box in it and went away. The people who had been watching him thought that he probably had been concealing stolen property and notified the police who visited the place, dug up the box and on opening it found inside the body of a male infant, which appar-, ently had been dead for twenty-four hours. The corpse was not carefully examined pending the investigation by the coro ner, bnt no marks of violence were visi ble on it. The occurrence may prove to be a case of infanticide, or it may be simply the attempt of poor people to evade the ex penses of a funeral. The coroner will investigate the matter today. No trace of the man's identity had been found last night.

TWO SUICIDES. MANNING/ AND *KINO SELECT THK MORPHINE ROUTE. An Accomplished Crook Tires of Life and Neuralgia—King Despondent Beoause He Lost His Money—Both Take Mor phine. Two Buicides occurred yesterday. Archibald Manhing, at one time a trusty at the city prison, was found dead at the Main street house on the corner of Third and Main streets. He had been Buffering for aome time from neuralgia, and went to bed on Friday quite ill from the pain. He did not get up yes terday morning, but the landlady did not attempt to arouse him, as she thought he had at last gone to sleep .after much suffering. Last even ing she decided to arouse him, as he made no sign of moving, and the gas had burned all day. He failed to answer her call, and on looking into the room, he was found dead, lying on the bed with his clothes on. By his side was an empty chloral bottle and an empty morphine pill box. It is possible that the death resulted from an overdose of one or both of the drugs mentioned, taken as a remedy for his neuralgia, but the chances are that he simply became tired of living and of suffering, and took an easy route to the hereafter. Manning was a very accomplished thief and crook. He was an English man, and possessed of considerable edu cation and ability. There is now at the police office a warrant for his arrest on the charge of embezzlement. KINO'B riKATH. An old man named King came to the Lafayette house the early part of last week. He had been working as a sec tion hand on the Santa Fe railway, and had saved $140 of his earnings. He went to the depot after his blankets and then said he was going to Fullerton and took his departure. On Friday he returned and said he had Been robbed of all his money, and reported the matter to the : police. He became very despondent, but the landlady told him he could stay at the houae as long as he liked. He went to his room early last night, and later was found on the bed dead. On the floor by his side was an empty ■morphine bottle, which had contained a drachm of the drug. I He was 55 years of age and had no family as far as is known. Miles'!
