It is now authoritatively announced that State Controller Colgan has con sulted with private counsel and been advised that the law appropriating $300, --000 to the world's fair is unconstitu tional. There is not the slightest doubt of the soundness of this advice. The legislature is clearly inhibited by the constitution from making appropriations of this character. Some people have very queer ideas of fundamental laws. They seem to think that because con gress has appropriated money to the world's fair, so can California. What ever may be the limitations in the con stitution of the United States upon the power of congress to make appropriations, it does not follow that because congress has made such an appropriation the legislature of Cali fornia can do the same. The people of this state had a long and severe struggle to limit the power of the legislature to the passage of bills restricting the ex - penditure of public money alone to the support of the state and the institutions directly under the control of the state. The legislature had carried the subsidy principle of authorizing appropriations of money and bonds to railroads and other corporations by the state,the counties and every municipal subdivision of the state, until it seemed as if there was no limit to the principle. When the constitu tional convention met, this was one of Mie burning questions it was called upon to take into considera tion. It did so. Perhaps it went to the other extreme ; but that is not the question. The action it took became by ratification of tbe people the funda mental law of California, and it can only be changed by the same power that made it. This constitutional prin ciple may be defeated by indirection, but that will prove nothing against the fact that any such legislation is a viola tion of the supreme compact. Until the plain principle of the constitution is changed by amendment, it is the duty of the state officials in po sitions of trust to see that it is not violated by their acquiescence or con nivance. We may regret that it is im possible under the constitution to spend $300,000 at the Chicago fair. But it is far better that we should forego this gratification than to set the bad example of ignoring the mandates and restric tions of the fundamental law of the state, Ly breaking down the barriers that stand between the rights of the people and the ambition or greed of un scrupulous individuals or combinations. In the Overland Monthly for July our townsman, Enoch Knight, Esq., has a most interesting and kindly review of the life of Charleß F. Browne, the fam ous humorist, familiarly known as "Artemus Ward, the great moral show man." The sketch is a most readable one, and gives us, in a few delicate pen touches, even a warmer feeling for the tender and sympathetic nature of Mr. Browne than we bad before. The writer of the sketch knew "Ward" from boy hood, and followed his all-too-brief ca reer with the watchful interest of one who held his genius in admiration and his manly aualities in the highest es teem. Mr. Knight, in a few terse phrases, sums up the character and gifts of "Artemus." He says: "He was a natural interpreter and ex ponent of the truest type of dis-. tinctive American humor, and yet it never even tended to coarseness, either indirectly or remotely. He led a merry and somewhat whimsical life, but his humor had such a phase and such a setting that it at once enlarged and illu minated the tender and human side. He himself was broader and manlier for it all. It did not mar nor narrow him. It was not strained or unduly cultivated; and so it ministered naturally and inev itably to his own happiness." This is a line tribute Mr. Knight pays to his friend; and from our knowledge of Mr. Browne in a guild acquaintanceship, which matures quickly, we perceive in it an impartial and just estimate of the great humorist's characteristics. A SPECIOUS PLEA—THE ABSURDITY OF THE GOLD-BUG IDEA. There is a very large class both in the United States and England, and in Ger many as well, that desire to see the single gold standard govern the world, because it increases the purchasing power of fixed incomes. Of course such a strong interest has advocates, and their views are reflected in a powerful and influential section of the press, and amongst this last appears the San Fran cisco Bulletin, which, in its issue of the 24th inst., has a very fallacious article, winding up with a pretty allusion to the Sybilline leaves. As a matter of fact, the recent policy of the men with fixed incomes, who, since 1873, have been able to rule the moneyed world, at least as far as the United States is concerned, has been remarkably like that of the oppressor of the middle ages, who developed a curious instrument of torture and death. It was in the shape of a room which gradually contracted day by day until it eventually assumed the shape and size of a coffin, in which the victim found his death. To speak figuratively, in such an inhuman contrivance will the people find themselves if the gold-bugs shall be permitted to carry out their plans. How stale and wearisome has grown the story that, if the white metal is allowed to circulate on equal terms with gold, the latter metal will either leave the country entirely or go up to a big premium. The rot and nonsense of this talk, which has been iterated and reit erated by the press which represents the views of the gold-bugs, has been re peatedly disproved. If the people who repeat these exploded aphorisms of ex tortion will read the report of the com mittee of the United States senate which was presided over by Senator John P. Jones in 1878, and which was instructed to inquire into the causes of the demonetization of silver, they will find that they are not giving expression to the opinions of the head of the bouse of Rothschild, of the presi dent of the Bank of France and of one of the most intelligent of the governors of the Bank of England. On the con trary, they will find that the demone tization of silver was looked upon by these noted financiers as of most disas trous significance to the prosperity of the world, and as involving the whole sale sacrifice of the debtor*"to the credit or class. To an American plutocrat of the nouveau riche order it may seem strange that such men as Baron Rothschild would object to the immolation of the poor and embarrassed. But these en lightened men, who probably may have possessed consciences, knew that the permanent order of the world is based upon justice, and that universal pros perity, founded on general and univer sal laws of finance, is preferable to a hoggish attempt—which was, alas! too successful—to gather in an unearned gain. Again and again we hear this cry that the circulation of gold and silver on equal terms will drive gold out of the United States. The men who utter this really silly cry are perfectly aware that when we had less than $200,000,000 in gold in this country greenbacks and national bank notes to the amount of quite .f800,000,000 circulated at par with gold. Instead of that circumstance driving gold out of the country, even with the addition of the Eland coinage act and the silver certificates, we find, according to the report of the controller of the currency ,that,notwithstanding the recent heavy shipments of gold to Europe to prevent the gold-bug countries of Europe from going into bankruptcy, we have $690,000,000 of the yellow metal in minted half eagles, eagles and double eagles still in this country. The absurdity of this cry is further illustrated by the recent experiences of England. After the failure of the Bar ing Brothers it is generally conceded that the Bank of England itself would have gone into liquidation if it had not been for the generosity of the Bank of France in loaning the former institution $15,000,000 in gold. Any one who looks at the direction of our shipments of gold will find that they go invariably to England and Germany, two gold-bug countries. England, the country par excellence of the single standard, and the country which brought about the de monetization of silver in the United States, did not begin to have gold enough to go round in her extremity. Perhaps the most striking confutation of the arguments of the gold-bues is presented in the case of France. Here is the case of a country that was obliged to pay a 51,000,000,000 indemnity to Ger many about twenty years ago in gold. Since then she has lost untold millions in the Panama canal, in the Comptoir D'Escomptes, and in other bad deals. Yet France today, with silver circulat ing side by side with gold, has $800, --000,000 in gold coin to less than half that amount which is controlled by England. France and the United States together, the former a bi-metallic, and THE LOS ANGELES HERALD; SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 27. 1891. the other a partiallybi-metallic country, have today in available gold coin four times as much as England and Germany combined. And this is the way accred iting silver drives gold out of a country ! It is in the face of facts such as these that the Bulletin does wrong to its in telligence by such outgivings as the following : A man, for instance, who had to meet a debt of $100, and who had the gold on hand for that purpose, would not pay in that metal. On the contrary, with his $100 in gold he would buy, let us say, $125 in silver, send it to the mint, get $125 in standard dollars for it, pay his creditor $100 in silver, and pocket the remaining $25. Of course this financial feat could only be performed where there was no specification of the money in which the debt was to be discharged. The proposition involved in this transac tion is not very abstruse. One would suppose that the truly wonderful econo mists who are professing to enlighten the public might in time be able to master it. But this is not all by any means. The merchant having $1000 in duties to pay would not offer gold to that amount at the custom house. He would, on the contrary, buy $1250 of silver with it, get it coined into standard dollars, pay his duties with them, and pass the remaining $250 to his credit at his bank ers. It will, perhaps, begin to dawn on the minds of those to whom we suspect "free coinage" of silver is not much more than a parrot phrase,badly learned, that the scheme they advocate means a horizontal reduction of the tariff to the extent of, let us say, 25 per cent. We do not think that the country is pre pared for any such violent fiscal change as that at this time. If the tariff ia to be lowered the work will have to be done openly and above-board, and not by this sneaking, left-handed process. As a matter of fact, the complete re monetization of silver by the United States, with an honest purpose on the part of our treasury department to give the white metal a fair show, would re suit in its remonetization all over the world in a short time. The truth is that silver is scarce. It is the money of the people over almost the entire world, and will remain so. The earners of modeßt wages must have it. You can't hand the man who has earned fifty cents a five-dollar gold piece or a live-dollar bill. Immense quantities of the white iretal are being consumed in the arts. En gland inspired originally all the crusade against silver. She requires immense quantities of it, which she buys as bullion and coins into rupees, which her merchants use in their dealings with India. It is this hocus pocus which has enabled her to build up an Indian competition with the wheat growers of California. Of course, she would rather bamboozle us into sell ing our silver to her at 80,85, 90 and even $1 an ounce, than be obliged to pay us what it is really worth, $1.29 an ounce, which sum places it on a parity with gold. The real and uncompromising remon etization of silver by the United States means the advance of silver to a par with gold, and a throwing off of slavish dependence on 'Change in London and Wall street in New York. Partial legis lation has resulted in a partial rehabili tation of silver. Complete legislation favorable to silver will completely re habilitate it. We reluctantly make room for a com munication from Mrs. Griffith, the mother of Mrs. Hanchette, treating of the conduct of Detective Smith in re gard to the missing Mr. Hanchette. We would advise Mrs. Griffith to close the controversy. It is altogether unprofit able, and is certainly painful to the relatives as well as it is to the friends of the missing gentleman. SHE COMMENCED TO TALK, And That of Course Ended the Scrim mage. A big colored woman stood in the middle of Washington street just west of Pico, yesterday afternoon, throwing stones at a negro man. The man was scared and tiie woman was angry, very angry. He had a long cut extending across one side of his head, and the blood was dripping down on his neck. He was an artful dodger, for his person was, as to the stones thrown by the panting woman, as the flea was to the Irishman's finger. Traffic was stopped altogether, and people came out of the neighboring houses to view the fray. At last a man came up and asked the big woman why she was throwing the stones. She stopped to explain, and the man she was throwing them at climbed into his wagon, from which he had been driven, and drove off at full speed. The woman threw aparting missile andwent home. The affair was caused by a family jar. The man was the woman's husband as might be supposed; only his wife would dare to throw stones at a man. It seems he had left her laßt Tuesday, and yester day hired a wagon, and foolishly after escaping went back to get some of his things. Then the wife got mad. She took a piece of hoop iron and hit him over the head, inflicting the cut spoken of, and he ran for his wagon and made for Washington street. She took a short cut across some lots and caught up with him and commenced hostilities. He was forced to retreat from the wagon and had to dodge stones until the man who is always in a crowd, and knows how to meet an emergency, got the wom an to talk. Uncle Sam* Rouging Millinery Kill.
