THURSDAY, JUNE 18, 1891.
There is something very sweet and in
sinuating about the way the Chronicle
and other Republican journals in this
state, and the leading Republican news
papers in the east, are talking about the
great benefits to the tin industry which
will result from the McKinley bill. The
Herald has heretofore pointed out the
fact that that famous measure, which
was ostensibly intended to stimulate our
productive industries, in no whit en
courages the American miner who seeks
for tin in the bowels of the earth. The
only protection accorded by the McKin
ley bill is to the manufacturer of tin
plate, whose staple is largely steel or
iron, with a thin casing of tin, which he
is allowed to import free of duty from
whatsoever point abroad may please
him best. With Major McKinley's sup
posed devotion to American industries
it might have been thought that
he would have made provision
for the protection of the American
tin miner. But the Ohio Napoleon (?)
knew his masters, and he was devoted
to their will. He was bowing down to
the Pennsylvania iron baron, while os
tensibly encouraging a new industry.
The Chronicle, the other day, made a
great parade about the arrival in that
city of a consignment of tin from the
Temescal mines, which figured up about
seven tons in all. That journal failed to
state that this harbinger of what we
hope to see developed into a great indus
trial movement, is left to struggle along
utterly without protection while the
iron masters of Pennsylvania have al
ready made complete preparations to
fleece the consumer.
There is a good deal of humor in the
way in which our Republican contem
poraries are discussing this great and
growing interest which, if it shall take
on anything like life, will be built up on
importations of foreign block tin. They
are ingenius enough to invent many ex
ponsivo plants which are being erected
for the manufacture of tin plates, with
the hope that, under the dust thus raised,
the giant steal, made under the cover of
enormous duties, may pass unobserved.
The American people have so long sub
mitted to being robbed that it is com
placently assumed that the preliminary
robbery of two or three million dollars
will excite no comment. Factories for
the manufacture of tin plate are going
up like magic, according to these au
thorities. We have already drawn a
picture of the single Welshman and
two small boys who embody the great
Niedringhaus plant in St. Louis. All
the other visionary establishments are
even less substantial than this western
enterprise. But the Herald may possi
bly not be accepted as authority on this
branch of the McKinley tariff. We
therefore quote from the Chicago Trib
une, a leading Republican paper which
occasionally dares to be honest, and
which says, under the heading, Lies No
Longer Profitable:
"This paper would be glad to see the
manufacture of tinplate started in this
country. But if it is to become an
American industry, it wishes that men
would quit lying on the subject, and go
to work and turn out commercial tin
plate, and offer it in the market so that
American consumers can get hold of it.
This has has been a case of 'great cry
and little wool'si nee last September. One
single quotation of American tinplate in
a trade journal would be worth more
than all this talk about 'million dollar
mills' to be started in Baltimore or in
some Indiana village. Where are the
4000 tons Major McKinley promised as a
starter towards meeting the yearly de
mand of about 350,000 tons?"
Here is a Republican journal that dis
dains to fib about the matter, and
which does not propose to prostitute its
functions of a great journal towards
buttressing a selfish and Bourbon Re
publican policy. Far different is it with
our esteemed contemporary of the
Golden Gate. The Chronicle assumes
that its readers cannot see through the
thin veneering of protection to Ameri
can industries which lies over the Mc-
Kinley bill like the slight coating oi for
eign block tin over the Pennsylvaniairon
and steel, which form the great bulk of
the tin plate which will be made, if
made at all. Here is the best statement
our San Francisco contemporary can
make for our tin producers under the
McKinley bill:
It will be of interest in this connec
tion to see what the new tariff law pro
vides on the subject of tin, not tin
plate, which is only iron or steel coated
with tin, but the metal tin itself. Sec
tion 736 of tbe McKinley bill puts tin
ore, caßsiterite or black oxide of tin and
tin in bars, blocks, pigs, or grain or
granulated on tbe free list until July 1,
1893, but this is modified by section 209,
which provides that on and after July 1,
1893, there shall be imposed upon tin in
the forms mentioned a duty of four
cents per pound, provided that unless it
shall be made to appear to the satisfac
tion of the president that the product
of the mines of tbe United States shall
have exceeded five thousand tons of
cassiterite and bar, block and
pig tin in any one year prior
to July 1. 1895, then all im
ported cassiterite, bar, block and pig
tin shall after July 1, 1895, be admitted
free of duty. These provisions may be j
summarized in this way : Until July 1.
1803, tin on free list; from July 1, 1893,
dutiable at 4 cents a pound, but unless
there be an annual domestic product of
5000 tons between July 1,1893, and July
1 1805, tin goes back to the free list on
and after July 1, 1895.
Now, if the block tin which may be
produced in the United Stateß in 1893 is
entitled to protection on the ground that
it is an infant industry, why is it not
more urgently in need of protection in
this current year of grace, when it is
still more infantile? That four cents a
pound, or $80 a ton, which may or may
not be levied in 1893, would be a most
sensible help to the tin producer of the
Temescal and of the Black Hills today,
when he is in a struggling and tentative
state. Why has it not been accorded?
It looks very much as if the Republican
leaders aim to mock the people, by as
suming that they can't see through the
tin plate ring's already accomplished
steal, and the tin miner by proffering
him help when he will either not need
it or have been obliged to forego his ef
forts through lack of encouragement.
Verily, the McKinley bill is wonderfully
and fearfully made, and its claims to
merit are based upon the assumption
that the Americans areaverysapheaded
veople. As to this last we shall see.
The uncomplimentary theory was not
supported by the elections last fall, nor
will it be, we opine, by those of the
coming fall.
The failure of the jury to agree upon a
verdict in the Wong Ark case illustrates
for the thousandth time in California
that it is impossible to convict a China
man of crime if he have sufficient inter
est amongst his countrymen to secure
witnesses to swear in his behalf. Wong
Ark's counsel placed their main depend
ence upon proving an alibi. This was
accomplished entirely through Chinese
testimony. That there was false swear
ing was shown from the fact that some
of the witnesses, who testified strongly
against Wong Ark at the preliminary
examination, reversed their testimony at
the trial. The friends of Wong Ark had
hail time to get their work in upon these
witnesses. One Chinaman who told his
employer, Judge Hatch, the morning
after the murder that he knew Wong
ATk had killed his female slave, veered
completely round when he came to tes
tify at the trial. By piling up testimony
to show that the accused was elsewhere
at the time of the murder, the counsel
for Wong Ark succeeded in raising a
doubt in the minds of some of
the jurors, and thus a mistrial was
secured. The people of California are
so used to these mistrials where Chinese
testimony figures that they have come
to look upon them as a commonplace
abuse of the machinery of the law. It
was in testimony in this case that one
Chinaman told a white witness it was
useless to try to convict Wong Ark be
cause the Chinese testimony would be
too strong for the testimony of the
white men. "For, you see," said this
acute celestial observer, "you got God;
Chinamen got no God." That sums it
up in a word. The Chinese have no
God. and therefore perjury cuts no fig
ure with them in a moral sense. A
people who have no hereafter can easily
"jump the life to come" when they find
it to their interest to swear falsely. The
Chinese, as far as the enforcement of the
law by our courts is concerned, present
as serious a problem to the people of
this state as the Mafia of New Orleans
did to the people of Louisiana before
the 15th of last March.
The Ohio boy, McKinley, has been
fairly started out on hiß career as the
Republican nominee for governor of
Ohio. Ordinarily few Democrats would
care much about Ohio, conceding the
buckeye state to the Republicans as a
matter of course, on the principle that
if the party of great moral ideas and all
the decency could not carry that state,
what could it carry? McKinley has
been conceded the position of standard
bearer of his party with great unanimity
and a great simulation of enthusiasm.
Some times candidates mount the
breach, and other times they are thrust
into it. There is a distinction
with a difference in these prop
ositions. Which is the case with
McKinley ? He may be a> rushing popu
lar favorite, and he may be a scapegoat.
Under all the circumstances, we are in
clined to think that the Ohio "Sweet
William" will come out the worst shorn
man that ever essayed political dis
tinction. The state that rejected
Foraker may not'find it hard to beat the
already beaten McKinley. The man
who failed to carry his own congres
sional district, and whose friends
vapor about him as a possible
candidate for president, may fail mis
erably in his aspiration to reach the
gubernatorial chairof hisown state. And
should such prove to be the case the
last state of that man politically would
be much worse than the first. The Re
publican convention which has just ad
journed in Ohio has been guilty of an
unprecedented thing. It dissolved with
out endorsing John Sherman for re
election to the United States senate.
This is something out of the common.
The icicle has been engaged in building
a $60,000 residence in Washington. It
is said that when old men start
in to build new houses their
death is near. However this may
be, Sherman's political knell has
sounded when a Republican convention
in Ohio has adjourned without endorsing
him for something or other. The tall
and gaunt millionaire, on a salary of
$5000 to $8000 a year, explains the laches
of his party and state by the statement
that his friends did not wish to intro
duce discord into the convention. Now
let the Democrats take the boards and
introduce the winner in the person of
the present governor, Campbell. By
this simple means a terrible lot of Re
publican bathos will escape harmlessly,
like steam from an exhausted receiver.
There will, of course, be a great deal
of opposition met by the council in their
work of retrenchment, and it will require
considerable rigidity of backbone on the
part of the members to no -inexorably
through with the task before them. The
fact that there will be many cases of in
dividual hardship in carrying out the
programme will prove one of the most
insuperable obstacles in the way of lop
ping off city employees that can be dis
pensed with. It is far easier to stand up
against indignant clamor than to resist
the tearful appeals of suffering merit.
But this is a case ol stern necessity. Our
high rates of taxation have become too
onerous to bear. We must cut our coat
according to our size. The expenses of
local government are too great for our
means. Individual citizens are scrirhp
ing all round to make ends meet, and
they cannot be blamed if they insist that
there should be reduction and retrench
ment all along the line in public ex
penses. The city of Los Angeles should
be able to carry on its local government
for much less than nearly half a million
of dollars wrung out of the property
holders, many of whom have to borrow
money at tremendous rates of interest to
pay their taxes. If the council shall
succeed in lowering our public expenses
$100,000 they will endear themselves to
the hearts of an overburdened com
A hill was before the last legislature
that should have been passed. Its ob
ject was to change the name of the state
school at Whittier from the ''Reform
School for Juvenile Offenders," to the
"Whittier School of Trades and Agricul
ture." The official name of the school
is one that should not have been given
it. It carries with it a badge of dis
grace to all those who graduate from it,
and will have a tendency to defeat the
chief end of the school, the reformation
of its pupils. There was really no ex
cuse for designating the school in this
objectionable way, and indeed it is the
worst policy imaginable to place an of
fensive label upon the Inmaies of any
reformatory institution by giving it a
name tinctured with criminal signifi
cance. The name cannot be changed
until the next session of the legislature,
but in the meantime we might soften its
effects by only alluding to it as the
Whittier state school.
To Wash Lace or White Madras Curtains.
After taking the draperies down shake
and brush the dust from them, then soak
for half au hour in warm soils. Heat half
a boilerful of water, shave into it half a bar
of good white soap, and add three table
spoonfuls of clear kerosene oil. When the
soap has dissolved put in the curtains.
Occasionally turn them over carefully with
a clothes stick. When they seem clean re
move to a rinsing water. After rinsing
thoroughly dip them in another water, to
which has been added a little boiled starch.
This will not stiffen them much, but will
give them just a little body, such as new
curtains possess. In case a creamy tint is
desired strain a little coffee into this last
water. If one is so fortunate as to possess
curtain frames the remainder of tbe work
is simple enough. In lieu of these,
however, sheets may be fastened to the car
pet, and the curtains carefully pinned to
these. A writer in Good Housekeeping
recommends the foregoing process, and says
that Madras curtains do very well if ironed
upon the wrong side while damp. They
must first be stretched, however, and are
much more liable to tear than when pinned
to a sheet and allowed to dry without iron
ing. Madras curtains containing colored
figures frequently launder quite as well as
plain ones. It will be well to test a small
piece when possible beforehand, so that in
case the colors run you can take them to a
professional cleaner who understands the
dry cleaning process.
Make a very smooth batter with half a
pound of fine flour, six eggs beaten till
light, two teaspoonfuls of brandy, one of
good salad oil, a pinch of salt, a grate of
lemon rind (or a few drops of vanilla, if
preferred), and a pint and a half of milk,
mixing it till of the consistency of good
cream. Melt a tiny piece of butter in the
frying pan, then pour in the batter till it
covers the bottom of the pan thinly. The
under side will be done in a minute or so;
then shake the pan to loosen the pancake,
and toss it lightly over on to the other side.
The batter should stand for a couple of
hours before it is used. This is a French

His 5-furlong run yesterday at Chicago

the best time ever made over the track

to get better than third. The speedy

races before he will be at his best.

The decision of Dunn in the Slavin-
Kilrain fight is, to say the least, very
stramre. The telegraphic reports re
ceived here are to the effect that Kilrain
was knocked out in the ninth round,
and why the referee should declare all
bets off is surprising, except perhaps
that he had a few greenbackson Kilrain.
This would cut some figure with a man
of the Jere Dunn stripe.
A Referee Who Apparently Does Not
Know His Business.
New York, June 17.—Jere Dunn, the
referee in the glove fight between Slavin
and Kilrain, in Hoboken last night,
today made the official decision that
Slavin won the bout and was entitled to
75 per cent, of the $10,000 purse, but
that all bets that Kilrain would be
Jknocked out within ten rounds were off.
New York sporting men look upon the
decision as inconsistent.

Stockton, June 17. —John L. Sullivan
arrived here today. In a talk with a
reporter, the champion said he would
fight no more. He was pleased with the
outcome of the Slavin-Kilrain fight, for
he does not like Muldoon aud did not
want to see his man win. He likes
Slavin personally, but never saw him
tight. When shown a printed letter
bearing the signature of Jackson, in
which Sullivan is severely criticised, the
big fellow said he believed it to be a
fraud, and that Jackson never wrote it.
He had been told that if Jackson did not
meet him he would cable to Australia
denying the authorship of the letter.

Custom of Dining at a Late Hour.
M. Franklin explains in one of his curious
essays on the private life of the forefathers
of the preseut generation of Parisians that
the custom of dining at a late hour is noth
ing but a return to the habit of the Seven
teenth century, and that the Eighteenth
century alone is responsible for all the
shifting and changing that has confused
and worried the would-be cheerful diner.
The only difference between the present
day and the Seventeenth century is that
what was then called supper is now known
by the grandiloquent name of dinner.
Charles V had his breakfast at 10 o'clock,
and only after having attended mass, and
his chroniclers report that he supped "in a
very good time." The oldest French cook
ery book, dating from the Seventeenth cent
ury, fixes the breakfast hour at the same
time at which it is now fixed among the
upper classes. "Nobody," says this old ora
cle, "should eat before the hour of 0, unless
he be ill or feeble." It then goes on to put
down a law the application of \, hich at the
present time would put most people into
rather an awkward position.

Effects of Music on Aplmals.
The keeper of a menagerie was once
asked whether the band had any effect on
the animals:
"To be sure it does," said he; "they like
it, and therefore it does them good. If you
were to come in and look at them in a
morning when the band is perambulating
the town, you would see many of them,
the more savage beasts in particular, dull
and moping, and either sitting or lying in
their dens. We who travel with wild
beasts cannot, of course, give them the
room they ought to have, and being
cribbed up in show boxes they degenerate
for want of exercise, do what we will with
them. But it would be very much worse,
I reckon, if it were not for tbe music.
When they hear the band strike up they
rouse themselves, and begin taking what
exercise they can, the beasts of prey by
walking backward and forward, and the
others by repeating the movements nat
ural to them when at liberty. The birds
will begin to chaffer and plume themselves
at the sound, and even the snakes at times
will uncoil and rear up, and convince the
people, who sometimes seem to doubt the
fact, that they are living creatures."

A considerable amount of plagiarism has
been the subject of much complaint. A
modified outrage is the instance of the old
story of the cobbler who, on being remon
strated with when discovered at his daily
occupation at tbe time fixed for his wife's
funeral, replied, "Business first and pleas
ure after;" aud the "new version" is thata
fly when spoken to as to being on a lump
of sugar, responded, "Buzziness now and
pleasure when it's swarm weather."

! Outcome or the Recent Political Con
vention at Cincinnati.
A new political organization was recent
ly born in Cincinnati and given the name
of the People's party, with the war cry of
"Down with the Money Power." The con
vention was composed of representatives
from over thirty states of the Farmers' Al
liance, the Citizens' Alliance, tho Knights
of Labor and kindred associations. Among
the leading spirits were Senator Peffer of.
Kansas. Ignatius Donnelly of Minnesota,
J. B. Weaver ot lowa, H. E. Tanbeneck
of Illinois and Jerry Simpson of Kansas.
The platform demands, among other
things, the free nnd unlimited coinage of
silver, the passage of laws prohibiting the
alien ownership of lands, limitation of
revenue to the necessities of the govern
ment, an equitable system of graduated
income tax, and tho election of president,
vice president and United States senator
by direct vote of the people. A national
conference is to be held In February, 1893,
to unite, if possible, with all other reform
organizations. If this conference does not
moke nominations for president and vir£,
president, a nationnl convention has to b»
colled for that purpose not later than June
14, 1893.
Some of the speeches were notable. "We
are here," said Senator Peffer, who was
chairman, "to undermine and dispose of a
power that is crushing the necks of the
people of America and the world." Gen
eral Weaver declared that the new party
would make the fur fly from oneendof the
country to the other, and that the battle
fur free institutions and the liberties of the
people would be waged between their can
didates nnd those "whom the cohorts of
Wall street nominated."

of tho committee on platform, is already

Writ n for the Herald. J
'Tis a lonely spot, Just under the lee,
Of a romantic, precipitous shore,
Where the f muggier bold—but be
Shall smuggle his wares no more.
In those days of yore, no town
Was here, no grand hotels, galore.
No railroads then, to bring renown,
Only a wild, though beautiful shore.
'Twas then, that men, in rough garb arrayed
Cime to plunge and revel in the surf,
And bring their goods—no duty paid,
If landed slyly on the velvet turf.
Those good (?) old days, forever gone,
Those sly old smugglers in their graves.
While wealth, fashion, and beauty come,
To revel in those same blue waves.
Still smugglers' cove remains the same,
The purpling ocean, breaks and roars
As when those rovers brought their game,
Thro' surf and swell with splashing oars.
Now, on a wild and f tormy night.
Is seen, on the breaker* whitening edge,
A phantom shin in woeful plight,
Wrecked on the ocean's rocky ledge.
The wraiths of dead men—so 'tis said.
In growing gale, 'midst roar of waves,
Arise from the ocean's stormy bed
With dreadful oaths to rave.
Be that as it may—l know it, not;
Of another story I am quite sure,
That lovers true have not forgot
Its wondrous charms to allure.
For troths are plighted, vows are made,
And hearts made happy with love,
While the sun rides high above the wave,
With bright smiles for Smuggler's Cove.
