~TUESDAY, BKPTEMBKB 6, 1892.
The shibboleth of the protection or
gans ia that a high tariff acts as a stim
ulus to competition in the home mar
kets, and therefore lowers the prices of*
all articles necessary to daily life in the
household. This might be true enough
if there were no such thing as a trust,
hut seeing that the tariff protects trusts
organized for the sake of increasing the
price of everything protected by the
McKinley bill, we fail to discern tbe
truth of the protectionists' arguments.
The trusts have reached the number of
250, moat of them organized since the
approval of the McKinley bill.
"Western Democrats say that all that
ia required is for Cleveland to show him
self on the stump, and Illinois and lowa
will "come down" like Capt. Martin
Bcott'a coon. We sincerely hope the
Democratic nominee will not be cajoled
into such a step. There ia an unwritten
law in the hearts of the American peo
ple that a candidate for president, who
goes out on tho stump to make campaign
apeeches, deserves to be beateu. Mr.
Cleveland will do well to be warned by
the fate of General Winfield Scott.
The Canadian authorities may always
be relied upon to "do the wrong thing
at the right time," as the late General
Grant would have put it. They now an
nounce that they will "take no steps
towards the arrest of the Asiatic cholera
scourge until it makes its appear
ance," at least, that is what the
telegrams say. Thia reminds us of
the sublime wisdom of that Teutonic
philosopher who declared that "Ven
ever der parn door vas shtole, den dey
.lock der cow oud, ain'd it?"
Tub specie exports of the weekending
August 28th, were $2,252,431, of which
41,000.000 went to Bremen, 1960,000 to
Hamburg and $292,431 to London. This
was the smallest remittance to England
for some time, but it must be borne in
mind that the season of heavy grain
shipments to England ia near at hand,
and that does much to reduce England's
demands against ua for the value of
manufactured articlea. The year 1891
was a terrible one for a money drain
upon the country and yet no financial
panic ensued. The export of money
was $85,497,963, as against $31,448,345
in 1890 and $59,434,102 in 1889. The
total exports ol mousy thia year up to
August 27tb, were $67,419,755, but dur
ing that time there was an import of
specie to the extent of $7,757,867, thus
reducing the net exportation for eight
■months to $59,661,888. The financial
condition of the state is a good one.
"With the decrease ol stock gambling tbe
popular pulse is no longer at fever heat
and the atmosphere ia clearer. The
present hank commission has done well,
and so did their ptedeceasore in office.
There is nothing in sight that portends
any financial trouble for California.
The attempts cf' the state board of
equalization to overtax all the "cow
counties," in order to let tho specially
privileged county of San Francisco
through on a light assessment, is pretty
well shown up in Friday's edition of the
Oakland Tribune, that shows the Pacific
Iron and Nail company, which is as
sessed at $80,000, ia mortgaged for $100,
--000. The works lie in Alameda county,
hut the stock is held in Sin Francisco,
so that no attempt has so far been
made to increase tbe asseaement. If a
bank would loan $100,01)0 on a piece of
manufacturing property, its actual
worth must be at least $160,000, as all
the banks in this state are loaning
money at very safe distances just new.
The property of H. D. Bacon, of unsav
ory banking memory, is assessed at
$120,000, while mortgaged for $180,000,
which ia the best proof that it is worth
at leaat $270,000. Thia assessment
should be raised to $210,000 at least.
None of the creditors of Page, Bacon &
Co., would protest.
There are a great many Democrats
throughout the district, and very saga
cious ones at that, who think that the
indifference of Democrats to the nomi
nation for congress ia without warrant.
Amongst these is ilon. John McGonigle,
of the Ventura Democrat. We take the
following from that sterling sheet, and
recommend its careful consideration to
the doubting Thomases:
The adjourned meeting of the Demo
cratic convention to nominate a candi
date to congress will meet at Lob An
geles the 10th inst., and that a winning
candidate wiil he then and there chosen
we have no particle of doubt. For vari
ous reasons we believe the Democratic
party has today a plurality of the voting
strength of the Sixth district, and will
increase that strength by election day.
The Republican majority in the district
ia greatly exaggerated, and three-fifths
of it at the last election came from Los
Angeles county, where Mr. Lindley
ia very unpopular with a large
number of his own party. If the
convention will give us a good Loa
Angelea Democrat as a candidate we
can send him to Washington, and there
are a doien or more to select from. We
have a man in our mind's eye who
would sweep the district like a new
broom. He is a statesman, a scholar
and a gentleman. He haa been tried in
public Doeition and never found want
ing. He haa been true to every trust
reposed in him, and bia record is with
out flaw or blemish. He baa alwaya
been the sturdy foe of monopolistic en
croachment, and the firm, unyielding
friend of the people. He is a roan of
resplendent Abilities, and. as an orator,
ranks among the distinguished of the
state. He is a gentleman of the moat
pleasing manners, popular abroad and
honored and respected at home. In
short, he is. in our opinion, the man for
the hour and tbe occasion. We allude
to Hon. R. F. Del Valle.
Mr. Del Valle would make an exceed
ingly acceptable candidate, and the
Herald would support him with enthu
siasm.
SANTA MONICA DESTINED TO BE A FINE
HARBOR.
The presence in Los Angeles of the
commission of United States engineers,
headed by Col. Craighill, who are
charged with the responsible duty of re
porting upon the best site for a deep
ocean harbor in front of our county
coast line, is of special importance to
our people, and. in truth, to the com
merce of the United States. It is im
-1 possible to disguise tbe fact that, with
the appropriation of $51,000 by congreep,
which was procured through the ener
getic action of the chamber of commerce
and the earnest efforts of Senator
Charlea N. Felton, there is a rapidly
growing sentiment that San Pedro
hae had her deserts; and that,
to some extent, tbe investment
there has failed to realize the expecta
tions of those who saw the great need of
a harbor for refuge and for commerce on
the shortest -line between tidewater
and tidewater within the limits of tbe
United States, for such certainly San
Pedro, Redondo or Santa Monica would
be. There was an old time and senti
mental idea that a railway on the direct
route from the bay of San Diego via
Milqnatay and the mountains which
align the Mexican boundary to Yuma
would some day be built, but when it
was abandoned by Col. Thomas A. Scott
the declaration that the shorter route
acrosß the continent "commercially"
was via tbe San Gorgonio pass, the op
portunity of San Diego to figure as the
great and exclusive harbor of the
Southern California coast passed away
forever.
The appointment of the commission
which has juet arrived in Los Angeles,
and which went down to Redondo yes
terday, is the last official recognition of
this fact. Influential statesmen, who
are quite capable of accomplishii.g the
ends they aim at, are determined that
the commercial needs of Southern Cal
ifornia shall ba recognized by congress,
and the report of the present commis
sion will doubtless form the basis of ap
propriations which will reach the large
but really, under the circumstances,
moderate sum of six or seven millions
of dollars.
Where will the lightning etrike ?
We have always had only one rule
with our readers, and that is to treat
them fairly, and we frankly answer the
question which we ask. The Herald
firmly believes that the commission
which is now entrusted with this work
will select Santa Monica.
We have several reasons for this view.
The first is that we think San Pedro ia
a completed proposition. That much
has been accomplished there cannot be
doubted. This journal has taken pleas
ure for years in holding up all the mer
its of the government v. oik at San Pe
dro, but the fact remains that that port
has failed to impress visiting statesmen
and others with its capacity to meet the
needs of the expanded commerce that
is growing up in Southern California.
That this is true is shown most con
spicuously by the action of the Southern
Pacific railway, which is now engaged
in building a wharf on a large scale at
the mouth cf tho old Santa Monica
cafion, to which they are preparing to
remove their immense business. This
action of thia great coiporation, whether
one approves it or no, is most signifi
cant. The engineers of the South
ern Pacific railway have deliberated,
given their preference to this site, and we
understand that even the Banning broth
ers are preparing to make Santa Monica
bay the scene of their operations. That
a great influence is behind these changes,
probably embracing the Hon. Leland
Stanford and the Hon. John P. Jones,
two of the most powerful members of the
United States senate, cannot be doubt
ed. Senator Jones haa been remarkably
modest in pushing Santa Monica, where
he has such large interests, but he prob
ably feels, now that San Pedro haa had
all the appropriations originally recom
mended by the first government board
of engineers, that he is at perfect liberty
to push the claims of the beautiful bay
that aligns his splendid poseessioDß at
Santa Monica. Senator Stanford will
undoubtedly work for the creation of a
great harbor at a point where the great
transcontinental business of hia Sunset
route will ultimately be done.
Without discriminating against any
other roadstead of the Loa Angeles
coast, believing, as we do, that the
great port of this immediate region will
lie under Point Dum6, it is pleasant to
know that the expenditure ot six or
seven million dollars at that point will
create a superb harbor, ample for the
transaction of all business of Southern
California, north of San Diego and south
of San Francieco. It has every advan
tage for its transformation into a port
that any roadstead could have. Its
wateis are as placid as those of the Mis
sissippi river, except on the rare occa
sions of storaas that rise in the south
west. As is well known, theße are in
frequent, and a breakwater would be
a perfect protection against them.
The anchorage is unusually good
even without government improve
ments, and the coast line of the South
ern Pacific will undoubtedly pass the
mouth of the cafion via Hueneme and
the Maliba ranch, thus admitting of a
LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 6, 1892,
commerce which will ramify through
the whole interior of Southern Califor
nia, and aa far east aa New Orleans and
Galveston. Of one. thing the public
may be assured, that if the appropria
tions are not secured for Santa Monica,
not a cent will be accorded to this
county. The influences favorable to
Santa Monica are powerful to insure
that negative result, at least.
Under the circumstances, it behooves
our people to inquire whether it would
not be well to pull altogether for tbe
attainable? It would bea great thing
to have many millions expended'in Les
Angeles county, no matter where. The
work will give employment to great
numbers of men, and it will certainly
detract from no other place. This is the
view the Bannings, who have large- in
terests at San Pedro and Wilmington,
take of the matter, and we think it ia
the only sensible one. In obtaining ap
propriations, as in other matters, in
union is strength. Even the property
of the citizens of San Pedro and Redondo
is certain to be enbanced in value by
great government improvements and ex
penditures at Santa Monica.
The strikes of the workingmen at the
east are beginning to abate, and they
would have ended long ago but for the
noxious presence of the "walking dele
gate," who should be compelled to walk
off. There was a case of this sort on
one of the north coast steamers some
months ago. The engineer's name is
Gilmore, and he had held his place for
twelve years, during nine of which he
had had three of bis crew of firemen
with him. On a Sunday, morning in
March last he was coming into the har
bor of San Francieco, and thought that
he detected something wrong in the
sound of the low pressure engine. As
soon as the ship reached the dock be
ordered the firemen to take off the
cylinder head for examination. They
got wrenches and began doing co when
suddenly the work stopped. Upon Mr.
Gilmore's inquiring the cause, he waa
told.by the firemen that the "walking
delegate" had forbidden their doing so.
This threw the work over till Monday,
in consequence of which the ship's sail
ing was delayed twenty-four hours. The
firemen were to receive extra pay for
what they did and were perfectly will
ing to do it, as it was the first extra
work they had been asked to do in two
years, but the delegate said otherwise.
Now, which was their friend, the en
gineer or the walking delegate?

LOOKING FOR A HARBOR SITE.
Arrival of the Commission of
Federal Engineers.
Chairman Colonel Craitrhill Outlines
His Plan of Action.
The Engineer* to Attend a Public Meet
ins; on Thursday— A Talk With
Colonel Craighill—Practical
Work to Be Done.
The five officers of tile engineer corpa
of the United States army have been
appointed by the aecretary of war as a
ppecial commission to report on the best
location for a harbor for Los Angeles,
arrived here at noon yesterday from
San Francisco.
The party consists of Col. William
P. Craighill, who is the senior officer of
the party and who ie stationed at Balti
more; Lieut.-Col. Henry M. Robert,
stationed at Nashville; Liet.-Col. Peter
C. Haine, stationed at Portland, Me.;
M»j. Charles W. Raymond, stationed at
Philadelphia, and Major Thomas W.
Ilanbury, Btationed at Portland, Ore.
These gentlemen were met at the
Southern Pacific depot by Lieutenant
Colonel Corbin and Captain Ainsworth
of the Redondo Beach railway, aud left
on a special train over that road for Re
dondo shortly after 1 o'clock. They
took up quarters in the Redondo hotel,
and were received by General McCook,
who proceeded to show them the points
of interest. The two majors of the
party were somewhat ill from their
trip, but the colonels were on deck and
ready for business.
A Herald reporter had a talk with
Colonel Craighill, who, by virtue of
seniority, is the chairman of the board.
"We will be ready to begin operations
tomorrow morning early," aaid that
gentleman, "aa we appreciate the im
portanse of getting through with the
work as speedily as possible. In accord
ance with the law recently passed, and
the instructions of the secretary of war,
we are directed to ascertain the most
eligible location for a harbor for Los
Angeles, together with the depth, width
and capacity for the largest ocean ves
sele, for commercial and naval necessi
ties, and make an estimate of the coat
of the same, and we are directed to
make our report before November,
1892.
"We will remain bete for one week,
and will make Redondo our headquar
ters. We will attend a public meeting
on Thurs.iay morning at 10 o'clock at
the rooms of the chamber of commerce,
and we are anxious to meet there all
citizens of Southern California who have
any information to impart or sugges
tions to make with reference to a har
bor for ihe cityof Los Angeles. You
pee we are strangers here, and we want
to acquire all possible information on
the subject of the harbor. We arrived
in San Francisco on the 2d instant, and
spent some time there in examining
maps and records.
"Tomorrow morning we will charter a
steam tug and spend two days in mak
ing a thorough examination of Santa
Monica and San Pedro bays. We will
take soundings at different points and
acquire all available information with
regard to the geographical contour of
the coast, depth of water and character
of tbe bottom of the sea along this
coast, and will act without regard to the
location of any particular coast towns,
but simply report in accordance with
the directions of the secretary of war as
to the best location for a harbor within
the lines laid down by law. We will
also make a trip to Catalina island
for the purpoße of making an
examination of the quarries there, and
the availability for shipment of tbe
stone which may be used in the con
struction of the breakwater of the pro
posed harbor. We will spent one day
in examining San Pedro bay and one
day on the Santa Monica bay, prior to
the public meeting on Thursday, and
will then continue our investigations
Bubject to the information and sugges
tions presented at the meeting, together
with our own deductions from the gen
eral observations above outlined. We
realize that the people of Southern Cali
fornia are deeply interested in the har
bor, and that there are immenee inter
ests involved, and will report the facts
just as we rind them, strictly in line
with our instructions under the law."
A committee of the chamber of com
merce, consisting of M. L. Graff, Kaapare
Kohn and S. W. Luitweiler, had a con
ference with the members of the com
mission, and, as a result, Thursday
morning at 10 o'clock was set for the
time for the public meeting to be held
at Los Angeles, at the chamber of com
merce, when testimony will be beard
from interested parties with regard to
the comparative merits of the different
coast points. The room at the chamber
of commerce which it is proposed to use
has a seating capacity of about two hun
dred, and if it is found that a larger
n umber than that desire to be present at
the meeting, an adjournment will be
taken to some other place.
Colonel Craighill, the senior member
of the board, stated that it was not so
much the desire of the committee to
hear generalizations about the commerce
of the various places and their compara
tive merits on other points as it was to
learn from ship captains and others who
had technical knowledge, what sort of
holding ground the various porta pre
sented, the conditions of the winds and
tides, and other questions of that sort.
