Readers of the Herald will probably remember that this journal has steadily held to the position that the current year would be characterized by striking de velopments in what may be called the mining prism of Los Angeles. For five or six months past there has been great energy in prospecting, owing to the an ticipation of an early completion of the railway which will connect Salt Lake with Los' Angeles. For decades on de cades the country which will be trav ersed by tjais road has been known to be specially rich in all lines of mineral wealth. Coal and iron exist in inex haustible quantities, while the precious metale abound in profusion on all hands. Timber, also, will shortly be accessible at moderate prices when the Carson and Colorado railway shall be completed to this city, or when some traffic arrangement shall be made with an existing road, both the Southern Pacific and the Santa Fe being in the line of such negotiations. The first significant eign of a mining revival which we noticed hereabouts was the purchase, by the Messrs. D. O. Mills and John P. Jones, of the old Cerro Gordo mines of the Messrs. Beaudry i Belshaw, at Independence, Inyo county. There is a large section of country in that neighborhood, embracing Pana mint, which will undoubtedly be richly productive of the precious metals very shortly. The vicinage of Darwin ia said to abound in in numerable deposits whose working has only been prevented by the costly char acter of transportation of all descrip tions. The country aronnd Oro Grande has lately made quite a stir in mining circles and a number of enterprising An geleiios bid fair to add largely to their bank accouuts by discoveries of rich and permanent deposits there. The lat est veritable sensation has been in the unearthing of prodigiously rich depoaita of gold in the extreme southwestern portion of Nevada, within easy reach of both the Carson and Colorado and the Central Utah railways. All the an- nouncements which have recently reached the publicconcerning these new deposits are sure to, be added to daily, for there is an army of prospectors in the fields to which we have briefly al luded, and the results of their long con tinued and persevering work are sure to be recorded very shortly. Of course, all the camps from which we hear may not turn out well, and one is permitted to smile when enthusiasts talk about oversfiadowing the Comstock lode, but there is around us a great stretch of rich and virgin territory which will give em ployment to tens of thousands of miners before many years, and the supplies for the whole region will be drawn from this city. There need be no qualifica tion in the announcement that we are just upon the eve of an able-bodied min ing boom. Things move so quickly in the United Staces of late that few people have time to note their changes. It was oupposed that, when Blame became secretary of state of the United States, whatever claims this country asserted to any thing would be maintained with special energy. It was even popularly thought by those who do not look beyond the surface that the Plumed Knight's favor ite attitude was that of twisting the tail of the British lion. Until the other day the United States claimed that they had fleen subrogated to all the rights of Russia in the Bering sea, and that that sea was a closed one. One of the first effects of Mr. Blame's diplomacy is the proposition that our rights in the Bering sea waters should be Bubject to arbitration. If such an idea had been P jested as to Blame in the old days, >n his fiery diatribes rang out in the se of representatives, that portion of American people with whom he stood high would have been paralyzed. Our present attitude in the Bering sea matter is in remarkable contrast to that which a Democratic administration as sumed years ago, also respecting a Pacific coast issue, in which we present ed to Great Britain the ultimatum "forty-four forty or fight." But at that time, owing to the enlightened policy of the Democratic party, the United States had a navy and jack tars who knew how to handle themselves. DISCREDITING IRRIGATION BONDS. There is evidently a disinclination amongst the San Francisco bankers to invest in irrigation district bonds, notwithstanding everything possible bas been done to show that, if proper precaution has been taken to see that the district issuing them is composed of good irrigable lands, they are safe as securities and de sirable as investments. The supreme court has passed favorably upon all the doubtful questions of law that have come before it with reference to the validity of such bonds, and it would seem that nothing more were wanted to fully guarantee capitalists in placing their money in this kind of securities. It is, however, idle to try to induce the San Francisco banks to look favorably upon these bonds, if they are deteim ined to give them the cold shoulder. San Francisco has been the great ab sorber of the surplus wealth of this coast, and her financial institutions are naturally looked to by theinteriorwith a view to receiving liberal consideration in a matter of this kind, upon which the prosperity of a large portion of the state depends. If the securities are safe and the interest guaranteed ample, why should be any difficulty in placing these bonds in the great money center of the coast? It has been too much the case in the past that, the capitalists of San Francisco have given the cold shoulder to great interior interests, and that city has suffered greatly in a busi ness point of view from the fact that this injurious policy has prevailed. A more liberal policy would have been better for the commercial metropolis of the coast and for the productive inter ests of this state. By the selfish and niggardly course the capitalists of San Francisco have in the past, they have estranged the people they should have conciliated and aided, and made enemies where they could have secured friends. AVliat is the result? Chicago is getting trade in this state that San Francisco could have held under a liberal and enlightened policy. The back country upon which that city can depend for business ia being more contracted every day, and if the irri gationists of the state are forced by the unfriendly action of her banks and cap italists to go east to place their bonds, another strong element of the produc tive people of California will follow the destination of their irrigating bonds with their business. So unwise and selfish a policy would kill any city that iollows it up, and San Francisco will find to her sorrow one of these days that no city aspiring to commercial great ness can afford to treat with indiffer ence any of the great productive inter ests that lie at the bottom of the pros perity of all classes of business. If the agricultural prosperity of the state is crippled, what is to become of the com | mercial activities of the cities? The Express has sought to bring the matter of the right or wrong of the Mc- Kinley bill down to a wise point by a dissertation on the great growth of the manufacture of wire nails in the United States. The fact remains that the Re publican ring who put through the in creased duty on tin plate, and who kept vessels busy crowding it into the United States in anticipation of the increase, have already bagged an enormous sum. The attempt of the Express to show a parity between the policy which pro tects the oranges, raisins, wines, bran dies and other products of California, and the tin plate legislation, is a pitiable failure. These California interests have already a real existence. As our con temporary says, our products were prob ably sent to the east to the extent of $6,000,000 during the past year. To get a comparison which is really on all fours with the McKinley bill and its relation to tin plate we would have to suppose, for instance, that, to oblige a specula tive ring, an enormous duty had been placed on ginseng, ostensibly to en courage the growth of that staple in California, or, really, to enable those who had been advised in advance of its enactment to import immense quantities of it in order to rake in a big pecuniary pot. If there had been a large but struggling tin-plate industry in the United States there would have been more excuse for this very transparent piece of legislative jobbery. But it has all the ear-marks of the old, old Republican jugglery. What we know of its first fruits is that nearly three million dollars worth of tin plate was imported into this country in anticipation of the passage of this bill, and that on this large importation Mc- Kinley's friends have profited to the ex tent of about $25 a ton. The industry does not really exist. Enormous profits have been made by the mere passage of the bill, and should the manufacture of tin plate really take a place amongst our established industries the tin ring is as sured enormous profits for years to come. Mr. James G. Blame is one of the many Republicans who have a very poor opinion of the McKinley bill. He is on record to the effect that it will not en able us to sell a barrel of American pork or other American products to Central or South America or to the world at large, but it will take tremendous tribute from the pocket of every consumer. The great northwest and the country at large has already passed judgment on this measure, tin plate iniquity and all, and however Californians may be pleased with the moderate protection accorded to their pioducts, the Republican party has already been knocked silly in the east and northwest by the recoil of the McKinley gun. THE LOS ANGELES HERALD; SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE (>, 1891. The census of children taken by the school marshals of Sacramento shows a falling off of 270 from the number re turned last year. And yet, says the Record-Union, there is a constant call for more schoolroom and more teachers. We have heard it often remarked that there are more nice, marriageable girls in Sacramento than in any other city on the coast; aiyl yet the marriageable young men are few and not over-desira ble. We don't know whether there is any connection between this fact and the falling off in school children. Manager Doyle of the Novelty theater is gradually merging the Novelty into a comedy theater, as the comediettas, bur lesques and farces presented thus far seem to meet the approval of the patrons. Today, in addition to a lengthy olio of specialties, Guthrie's farce comedy, Love in a Bakery, will be pre sented, and Catulle will put on another sensational illusion styled La Cocon. A Real Estate Clerk Robs His Employ- ers and Absconds. San Francisco, June 5. —It has been discovered that Benito Fernandez, head clerk in the office of H. P. Moreal & Co., real estate agents, disappeared about a week ago, and that there is a shortage in his accounts. As soon as Fernandez had disappeared his employ ers discovered that lie had recently col lec + ed rents which he had failed to hand over to the firm, and that he had also appropriated money entrusted to him for the purpose of paying interest. The amount of his defalcation is not known yet, but it is said to be several thousand dollars. It is also said that Fernandez was married recently and has taken his bride with him. INSURANCE AGAINST ANARCHY. Chauncey M. Depew's Estimate of Higher Education. Cincinnati, June 5.—A large audience gathered in .Pike's opera house tonight to listen to Chauncey M. Depew's speech in behalf of higher education. It was the closing event of the- com mencement exercises of the Cincinnati university. Speaking in favor of the multiplicity of colleges in America, as compared with the few in the old world, he said in Europe higher education is a privilege; in America it is a duty. Every collegeis an insurance company against anarchy. There is a renewed interest mani fested in the Nicaragua canal in view of the possible complications tbat might have arisen out of the Itata affair. In the event of hostilities with Chile the canal would enable us to concentrate a naval force in the Pacific in a few days, whereas, if we had to get it by way of Cape Horn it would take several months. The ports of California could be coveted by reinforcements from the Atlantic be fore a fleet could reach them from Chile, and a squadron of attack from the At lantic could make its way to South America via the canal and intercept a Chilean fleet before it could pass the isthmus. There is no likelihood that we shall ever have a serious difficulty with any of the South American repub lics, but a completed canal across Ni caragua would be of such advantage to us in a military point of view that when ever any circumstance arises directing the public mind that way, it creates an interest in the project that will do much to force congress to come to its aid. It has been the habit of the English press to severely animadvert upon the lack of respect, dignity and order that sometimes is observable in American courts. But it will not, after the scenes that have just been witnessed in the highest English court, with Chief Jus tice Coleridge presiding, lie in the mouths of our British cousins to again find fault with the way in which Amer ican courts are conducted. That must have been a scene to have awakened respect for a high judicial tribunal when the spectators in the baccarat trial saw the wife of the chief justice and her fe male companions sitting beside that dignitary, giggling and sending notes to the lunch-munching aristocracy that oc- cupied all the best seats in the court. It was more of a scene got up for theat rical effect than n grave and serious trial in which the heir apparent to the throne of England was the chief witness, both against the man that cheated at cards and himself who banked the game. The aristocracy made a sort ot a picnic out of a trial that will have far reaching results. The absorbing of the Shufeldt distil lery by the whisky trust will be accepted as very strong corroborative proof of the guilt of George J. Gibson, secretary of the trust, who was charged by Shufeldt with sending a dynamite infernal ma chine to him with the object of blowing up the distillery. It is said the trust paid $2,000,000 for the establishment. Although Gibson is under indictment for the attempted crime, there can be little doubt that the distillery purchase will result in compounding one of the most atrocious felonies ever attempted in this country. In the time of Charles the Second royalty could outrage all the decencies with impunity; but in this age public opinion is shocked when the heir appai ent to the British throne acts as banker at a gambling game.. Englishmen who believe that the law against gambling games is not a dead letter when violated by either high or low, will be apt to make the Tanbycroft affair a thorn in the side of the blackleg prince. The Methodists of Wales are already moving upon his works. AMUSEMENTS. The Waifs of New York will be given at the matinee this afternoon at the opera house, and tonight. Those who enjoy a lively melodrama will be pleased with the performance, and all who like clever character work will find Katie Emmett and Amy Ames just to their taste a # * Frohman's Men and Women company is billed for next week at the opera house. Diplomacy is on for Friday night, with Sidney Armstrong as the Countess Zieka. The company includes several well known and popular people. **# SKIPPED WITH HIS BRIDE. WORLD OF SPORT. ARNICA, THE L,OS ANGELEo FII.L.Y, SECOND AT WESTCHESTER. Jockey Taylor Injured in a Haoe—Fron tenac Wins a Fast Raoa—The Result of the Ball Games. California horses finished second in a number of races at Westchester yester day, L. J. Rose's Arnica being among the number. This filly has been run ning very consistently, and promises to rank among the best 2-year-old fillies of the year. Arnica was trained at the Los Angeles track. Word reaches here that Sinfax will be able to race by August. It is to be hoped that this news is true, as Sinfax is too good a colt to be lost to the run ning turf. The organization of a lacrosse club at Riverside will have a tendency to waken up the votaries of the Canadian game in this city, and a contest between the two clubs is one of the possibilities in the near future. Below will be found the principal happenings of the sporting world. TURF EVENTS. Jockey Taylor Badly Hurt at Morris Park—Arnica Runs Second. Westchester, N. V., June 5. —Be- tweeen 7000 and 8000 persons attended the races today. In the first race Geo. Taylor had a mount on Bel wood, and in the second break the horse got his fore legs crossed and pitched forward. In trying to arise he struck Taylor on the head with his hoof, inflicting a painful wound at the base of the skull. In the fourth race Judge Morrow was odds on favorite and ran a good race, but his weight told at the end and Frontenac beat him in 1:47, within a second of the record. The track was fast.

Prospect of a Oame of Lacrosse Between Riverside and Los Angeles. The Canadians of Riverside have »r --ganized a lacrosse club. This is the national game of Canada, and is admit tedly the most interesting and exciting of all games. The officers of the new club are: President, J.S. Castleman; Vice president, J. E. Beamer; secretary and treasurer, W. F. Helmer. The club Btarts out with a membership of fifty. Los Angeles has a lacrosse club who would be pleased to arrange a match with the Riverside club in the near future. A match between (lie two clubs of Southern California would excite widespread interest, and would hav*e a tendency to popularize the game in California. The secretary of the River side club is requested to correspond with the sporting editor of the HSR ai.d with a view of arranging a match. THE SANTA BARBARA FAIR. The Programme tor the Coming; Annuel Fair. The Nineteenth district association of Santa Barbara is the first one in South ern California to issue a programme for the annual fair of 1891.

Her Husband Denies That She Was Le gally Marri9d to Him—She Charges Him With Deserting Her when the Baby Was Born—The Matter Under Investi gation. A woman who says she is a daughter of G. W. Peachy,.the harness dealer, of 257 South Spring street, is the cause of a sensation in San Francisco. She was found destitute in Oakland on Monday last, and very ill, and is now in care of some benevolent ladies. She claims to be the wife of Dr. M. IS. Kates, of San Francisco. This the doctor denies. .He admits that he lived with her for a short time, but says she can produce no legal proof of marriage. He also asserts that he has spent much money trying to cure her of the opium habit, and only abandoued her when he found the task was hopeless. Mrs, Kates is a young woman, says the San Francisco Chronicle, and was once pretty, having regular features, heavy, dark-brown hair, and large, soft, dark-brown eyes. Her voice is well toned, and her speech, manner and ap pearance indicate that she has been well educated and possesses much nat ural refinement. She was lying in bed, and her pale face, thin features and hands showed that she has been a 311 Merer from sick ness and mental distress. She etated to a reporter that she met Dr. Estes at San Jose. a year and a half ago, and they fell in love, and were married by a man cl.iiming to be a minister,—a Dr. Greely. After the birth of her baby she says the doctor treated h§r cruelly, and when she fell ill deserted her. In closing the interview Mrs. Estes said : "Something has been said about my opium habit. Ido not deny that, but I do aliirni that it was not assumed voluntarily. I have been an invalid and a great sufferer. Morphine and narco tics were given me as medicine to relieve me from pain, and thus the habit grew. It is not as bad as has been represented, and I am not a 'victim,' and am curing myself of it." Mrs. Estes stated further that her maiden name was Peachy, and that her lather is G. W. Peachy, a rich saddle and harness dealer* in Los Angeles, where she is well known. The Oakland Times of Thursday says of the matter: "Secretary Theobald left yesterday for San Jose to investigate the sensational Estes case, and to find, if possible, the marriageof Dr. and Mrs. Eites. He has recently learned that a man named West was divorced from Mrs. Eates in 1888, and that on February 8, 1889, Dr. M. B. Este and Mrs. West were married in a hotel at San Jose, and he has found witnesses to the marriage. The child who was baptized in Dr. Horton's church at Milton Taylor Estes is said by the doctor that it does not bey long to him. Theobald says the child could not be an offspring of the man the doctor says it is, and he proposes to see that the doc tor supports it or goes to jail. LURED TO HIS DEATH. An Old Mining Man Mnrdered and Robbed at Salt Lake. Salt Lake, June 5. —Ed Callahan, a well-known mining man, was murdered early this morning on the road south of this city. He had been out to the Road house with a sporting ■ woman, and she says that while returning, a masked man stepped out into the road, fired threo shots at Callahan and drag ged him from the buggy. When she drove back after quieting the horse Callahan lay dead in the road, his pockets turned inside out. He is known to have had $600 on his person. The woman is suspected of being a confed erate who lured him on to his death. A Suit to Disarm Guards. Seattle, Wash., June 6.—A suit in equity, growing out of the labor troubles at the Franklin mines, has been brought in the superior court of King county, with the object of securing a mandatory injunction to disarm the body of armed men who are guarding the union mines where non-union negro laborers are working. Warner Miller's Canal. Chicago, June s.—Ex-Senator Warner Miller of New York, president of the Nicaragua Canal company, was in the city today on his way to San Francisco. He expressed himself more than satis fied with tbe condition of affairs in the canal work, and confidently expects it to be open to business in 1897. THAT CARNIVAL. NOT MUCH MERRIMENT ABOUT IT NOW. Tbe Executive Committee Issu» An Ex planatory Statement — Its Main Fea tures-Mr. Ferkinu Makes Another Assertion. The executive committee which man aged the Chicago orange carnival, con sisting of C. M. Wells, J. W. Cook, E. W. Jones', yesterday issued a statement regarding some of the criticisms which have been made about the management of the carnival. The document is very lengthy. It admits the Cobb at tachment but states that he accepted less than his first demand. The fact of a colored lackey being employed to serve out wine at headquarters is answered by the assertion that a delegate yesterday said that if such an expense could not have been afforded he would have paid it. The statement that the localities rep- . resented "demanded" an investigation of the'books early in the show is said to be "false." About Mr. Perkins, the following statement is made: "There has recently appeared a state ment from G. Perkins, the carpenter whom the committee took to Chicago, supposing that the experience which he gained in the citrus fair would be of Bpeoial service there. His claim was put in for what the superintendent and the committee believed to be an un reasonable amount, and he was held to the contract. The sum of $133.43 was finally paid him, after his appeal to the general committee had proved of no avail, and he indulged in a great deal of abusive talk. We mention this to show the man's animus in his statement. His ideas in the matter of the expense of the carpenter work are hardly as valu able as the receipted bills which are now in the possession of the committee. The use of the word eight instead of ten. to which he refers, was a clerical error in the report." The document further stntes that the services of the boss carpenter which Mr. Perkins referred to in his letter in yesterday's Herald, were very much needed for reasons which the committee stated it is not necessary to go into. Anybody who wants to examine the accounts as they are, is invited to do so. The committee protests against being judged by people actuated by malice, or who are incompetent through ignorance. Mr. G. Perkins writes to the Hkkai.d replying to the portion of the carnival committee's report referring to him. He claims that he was appointed by Mr. Hanchette as superintendent of ■ con struction of the citrus fair, and his work had met with approbation. He had lost a good job at higher pay to reproduce the designs in New York, but had loy ally and disinterestedly stood by Mr. Hanchette. He advanced the money for his personal expenses, etc., and had only asked for money after the carnival was well under way, when tbe bill for expenses was repudiated by Mr. Wells, though approved by Mi. Hanchette. He then goes on to outline his efforts to ob tain the money due him by the commit tee, and denies the words creditod to him by the committee. HOW 9AWTKLLK WAS KILLED. The Murdered Man's Brother* Version of the Affair. Portsmouth, N. H, June s.—lsaac B. Sawtelle has put on record with the governor a statement of how his brother Hiram was killed. In brief, according to the story, he admits that he was present when Hiram was shot, but says the killing was done by an agent of "Dr." Charles Blood. The cause was Blood's failure to compel Hiram to sign a document reieaeing certain propefty. The missing head of the murdered man was thrown into the Atlantic ocean from one of the Portland boats the next night. Hale* Bout-rrinti. Merced, June s.—The testimony in the Hale murder case today was confined to identifying the boot-prints from the Middleton house to the gate at the resi dence of the prisoner. Mr. Kelly, who ownb a ranch adjoining that of Hale, testified that be found fresh tracks fitting Hale's boots perfectly. Much Ado About a Cent. The smallest deposit ever made in this city was that of Postmaster Jewett, Who recently placed one cent to a special ac count of a Comanche county postmaster in the Wichita National bank, who in his quarterly settlement last fall was found short this amount. The depart ment will bo duly notified of the credit nj made. The second assistant postmaster general will notify the auditor of the treasury, and in turn will demand a re ceipt from the treasurer of the United States at New York, who will send this receipt in triplicate to the postmaster general, the treasurer of the United States and the Comanche county post master. Great is the circumlocution office!—Wichita Eagle. In. Trance a new "magic mirror" has lately been introduced. It consists es sentially of a glass plate coated with a film of platinum so thin as to be trans parent to light coming through from be hind, while being a true mirror or re flector to light impinging on it from the front.
