For some days past canvassers have
been oat soliciting advertisements for
the Illcstbatid Hkkald Annual. This
will be the twelfth issue of this invalua
ble publication, which has done so much
to develop Los Angeles and Southern
California. Onr agents have met a most
gratifying snccess, and they will remain
in the field until it is time to put tbe
work to press.
Libel suits against newspapers do not

Senator Palmer's joint resolution to
amend the constitution so as to author
ise the election of United States senators
by popular vote is a step in the right
direction. Unless we want the senate
to become the property in fee of the
great corporations and the millionaires,
we must take the election of United
States senators out of the legislatures
and repose it in the hands of thepeop'e.
It may seem the proper thing for a
certain section of the Republican press
to treat Senator Hill with low-flung
abuse; but they will find tbat they have
made a great mistake before they are
much older. The man who by tbe force
of his genius as a leader will control the
delegation of his state to the National
Democratic convention, whether nomin
ated or not, is destined to prove an im
portant factor in the politics of the
country. It is neither smart, pretty nor
profitable to treat such men as if they
were escaped convicts.
Mb. M. H. Ledbetter, who died so
suddenly on Friday, has long been a
conspicuous figure in Los Angeles. He
waa a man of giant proportions, stand
ing head and shoulders above tbe stature
of ordinary mortals. For many years
he had devoted himself to bridge-build
ing, and constructed nearly all the large
and small bridges built by the county
for the past twenty years. He was a
thorough mechanic, and a conscientious
workman. Like nearly all men of great
physical proportions, he was as amiable
as a woman and as gentle as a child.
He finely illustrated the idea of Shake
speare in Measure for Measure: "It is
well to have the strength of a giant; but
not to use it as a giant."
Ex-Senator Inuali.s says that the
United States do not want a navy. A
strong navy means a constant means of
getting us into trouble, as was the case
with having the Baltimore at Valparaiso
instead of being in one of her home
ports to carry ont the purpoee for which
she was intended. He says that a
strong navy means that we shall have
expensive war ships swaggering around
the world like great bullies with chips
on their shoulders, playing the role of
the bad man from Bodie. The answer
to this is simply that as long as we are
a commercial nation and trade with
foreign powers we must be prepared to
protect that trade, and to give security
to Americans wherever they may be.
This cannot be done with wind.
Whbn Senator Hale of Maine took ad
vantage of the absence of Senator Hill
of New York to asperse him as entering
the senate bringing " to his party tbe
trophy of a great state chained and
gagged and despoiled of her political
lights," he made a nice little piece of
school-boy declamation that would tickle
the fancy of the epicene Mugwumps and
be relished by the straight-laced Phari
sees of the Republican camp. Senator
Hill will doubtless in due time pay hia
respects to Senator Hale for his compli
mentary recognition of a new member of
the senate; for the great New Yorker is
as able to defend himself in debate as
he is to give good government to his
state. In the meantime, however, we
cannot refrain from quoting a notice of
Mr. Hale's rude and brutal speech from
the New York World. That paper says:
It is only necessary to say that if there
has been any "chaining, gagging and
despoiling" in this state it was done
under the rulings of a court which ranks
in dignity, ability and reputation next
to the supreme court of the United
If there is sny political right more
fundamental than the right of the
majority to rule, will the senator from
Maine indicate what it is? This is the
right which Governor Hill did much to
secure to the state of New York, and its
people are grateful to him for the ser
If Senator Hale has any sympathy to
spare to states despoiled of their rights,
let him bestow it upon Montana, whose
two fraudulently-chosen senators he
voted to seat, or upon New Hampshire,
whose junior senator was elected by the
most barefaced fraud and shamelees
intimidation. And if this does not
exhaust his supply he might bestow a
little sympathy upon Connecticut,
where the governor elected ,by the
people is denied his seat by Republican
j nullicers.
In the death of Spurgeon a great man
has passed away. He was not a genius
in the sense that he made great discov
eries and evolved new ideas, but he was
endowed with that rare faculty which
enables its possessor to touch and hold
the heart of the multitude. His inde
finable power consisted, not in having
oratory or flashing eloquence, but in giv
ing expression in simple language to
thoughts and feelings that penetrated
his hearers to tbe quick, and swayed
them into active sympathy with the
great work of regeneration he so ear
nestly espoused. There are thousands of
preachers who deliver every Sunday
finished, instructive and edifying ser
mons. Great pulpit orators may be
found by the score in all large cities;
but there has only been one Spurgeon.
The writer, when he first heard Spur
geon in that immense tabernacle in
London expressly built to accommodate
the thousands who flocked to hear him,
was impressed with the familiar, plain
and unconventional style of the great
preacher. He indulged in no flights of
eloquence; no polished sallies of wit;
no attempt at framing striking
ideas iv a border of ornate diction.
He spoke right along in famil
iar speech ; brought himself down to the
level of his hearers and was on a convet
sational plane with the humblest intel
lect amongst them. His meaning was
not only instantly apprehended by
everybody, but it was conveyed to them
in a mysterious current tbat reached
the emotional intelligence, and at once
established a connection of magnetic
sympathy between the preacher and the
auditor. There was no elfort; no strain
ing after effect. He would read a verEe
from the scripture, and comment upon
it in a way that would render it as clear
as crystal. Then he would apply its
teaching to the human want in a flow
of glowing thoughts that would strike
deep into the inner conscience of his
hearers. Not a harsh expression es
caped him. He was all kindness, ail
gentleness, all love. The sinner was to
him a stray sheep, and his mission was
to win him into the fold ;he was the
prodigal son for whom he always kept
the fatted calf of his soft, loving and
persuasive eloquence at fervent heat.
Such men are rare, and so rare that
when one appears the whole world,
irrespective of creed, race or country,
recognizes and bows to his greatness.
But Mr. Spurgeon was not only great
as an effective preacher, as a "winner
of souls;" he was a great organizer, and
a most indefatigable worker. Besides
the immense duties which devolved
upon him in his care of a flock that was
the most extensive of the great city in
which he labored, he contributed spe
cial articles on spiritual and religious
subjects to a score of publications, at
tended personally to his wide corre
spondence, and gave to the public, in
printed form, one or two wonderfully
striking sermons every week.
In the death of Mr. Spurgeon one of
the greatest lights the religious world
has seen for many years has gone oat.
And he was aB as great. His char
ity waß as boundless as his sympathy,
and no one was too wretched, too low or
too abandoned, not to tind a place in
his all-encompassing heart. Though
his labors have ceased, tbe fiuits of his
teachings and example will continue to
ripen and nourish his memory in the
mindset the people long after the tin
selled kings of the earth have been for
It is hardly worth while to legislate
upon tiie exclusion of Chinese unless
the measure is so amended that it will
keep the excluded people out of the
country. The existing law does not do
so. It has only closed the ports they
formerly entered against them, and
changed the channels by which they
reach our territory. It has given them
access to the United States through
British Columbia and Mexico, and
whilst the difficulties attending their
clandestine entrance may have Eome
what diminished the volume of Chinese
immigration, the fact remains that they
are constantly coming in in spite of the
exclusion act as it now is. Exclusion
to be effective must be accompanied by
some means of ascertaining the iden
tity of the Chinese who have the right
to residence here. Without legislation
that will accomplish that purpose, ex
clusion will not exclude. Registration
and means of identification can alone
protect the country from constant in
fraction of the law. If our lawmakers
are hone3t in their belief that the Chi
nese should be kept out of the country,
then they Bhould not hesitate to so
amend the law as to make it effective to
the end for which it was designed.
Gabza has successfully baffled the
efforts of two governments to catch him.
The Washington government wants to
know why the American forces on the
Rio Grande do not unearth this daring
Mexican who is making war on his
country from American soil. It might
also be asked, why does not the Mexican
government catch him, as it is with
equal probability declared that he is
"laying low" on Mexican soil. Why, it
has even been reported that the "bandit
chief is doing the City of Mexico in
disguise. Well, it seems certain tbat
both governments have been put to
tbeir wits' ends by this wily revolution
ist. He is like the Irishman's ilea, and
the worst of it is that the truth of the
rumor is rapidly gaining credence tbat
he has a strong and well-armed follow
ing in Mexico, ready to rise whenever
the signal is given. No wonder Diaz is
anxi >us to catch this übiquitous and
dangerous revolutionary chief.
The duke of Marlborough is about to
change his residence and live in New
York. The "four hundred" will now
have a real duke and a real duchess to
toady to. Thcie is no doubt about
Marlborough's title. It descends from
one of England's greatest soldiers and
meanest of men, on the paternal side,
and from Sarah Jennings on the mater
nal side, tho champion scold and the
most dreaded termagant of the two cen
turies in which her presence was in
flicted on a patient world. It will not
lower the present duke in the estima
tion of the New York toadeaters that he
was one of the most profligate members
of a profligate nobility, up to middle
age, and that his name has been asso
ciated with some ol the worst scandals
of a period prolific in disgusting scan
dals. That this unclean man will be
courted and idolized and placed on a
pinnacle by the anglo-maniacs of New
York society goes without saying. A
reformed roue" with a title is a good
enough lion for thatcrowdof sycophants.
The popcorn party which was given
yesterday afternoon by the Logan W.
R. C, to the school children at G. A. R.
hall, on Spring street, was an interest
ing affair. An excellent programme
was rendered with great credit to tbe
following youthful performers; Piano
eolo, Mennetto-Beethoven, by Marvin
Mackenzie; duet, violin and piano, se
lection from Martha, by Etta and Emily
Curtis; dance, Highland fling, by Ruth
Jackson; character song, Jamie has
Gone to Live in a Tent, Lenora Mac
kenzie ; recitation, The Two Kittens, by
Frankie Lotbrop; piano solo, by little
Miss Bird; recitation, We'll Pop Some
Torn Tonight, by little Regina Walsh.
This last recitation announced to tbe
much delighted children that the pop
corn was next in order, and while the
ladies busied themselves in popping it,
the grand march was played. It was a
most interesting sight to see the long
line of young people, ranging from 10 to
2 years old. Theu everyone was pre
sented with a large bag of popcorn,
which made their happy faces glow with
pleasure. Thus closed the first of tbe
children's entertainments which are to
be continued monthly, each of a differ
ent and novel character.
The third weekly social of the Madi

Of course the rain has been the all
absorbing subject of conversation, and
the earth has been all absorbing the
rain, which has fallen so gently and
with such intervals that tbe thirsty
ground drank it all in, and it has caused
no washes so far, much to the relief of
every one who lives on the hillside.
And then the enow which has draped
our mountains with its frosty and lace
like mantle, reaching nearly to the very

Mark Twain's Opinion of the Far
Famed Sandwich Islands.
The indescribable charm which Ha
waii exercises over all who once breathe
her balmy air was recently beautifully
expressed in a public address by Mark
Twain. Referring to Hawaii, he said:
•'No alien land in all the world has
any deep, Btrong charm for me but that
one; no other land could so longingly
and beseechingly haunt me, sleeping
and waking, through half a lifetime, as
that one has done. Other things leave
me, but it abides ; other things change,
but it remains the same. For me its
balmy airs are always blowing, its sum
mer seas Hashing in the sun, the pulsing
of its surf beat is in my ear. I can see
its garlanded crags, its leaping cascades,
its plumy palms drowsing by the shore,
its remote summits floating like islands
above the cloud-rack; I can feel tbe
spirit of its woodland solitude; I can
hear the plash of its brooks; in my nos
trils lives the breath of flowers that
perished twenty years ago."
