THE GREATEST LIVING MODERN SEER,
Wishes to thank the public of Loa Angeles for their generous patronage since his
advent am >ng them. Prof. Leonard haa been consulted by many of the wise and
learned ekepiics of the world, who have left hia presence wit i minds filled with
doubt, bewilderment and wonder. Many "of our Los Angeles friends have been
discussing the source of hia powers. Some claim that he is a mind reader or a
hypnotizer; others (of a more scientific turn of mind) that he is a telepatbist or
ft thaumatnrgiet; while our spiritualistic friends claim him ac the greatest me
dium the world has ever seen The Professor's marvelous powers are certainly
beyond the comprehension of ordinary aiortals.
A Man Who fan Accurately Diagnose Your Mental and Bodily Ailments.
Can further tell you just what you have come to see him about without requiring
you to open your lips to even pass the time of day, must certainly be possessed of
some strange power which distinguishes him trom his fellowman. His advice on
matters of business is always correct. He foretells the results of lawsuits, specu
lation?, etc., and in matrimonial ventures his valuable aid has been the direct
means of putting hundreds of couples on tbe right road to happiness and success.
To show tbe people of Los Angelea hie real sincerity in his great work, he will give
sittings the remaining days of thin week for $2. His advice and forecasts for the
future are invariably correct. Af'er Saturday next PROF. LEONARD will charge
his usual price for sittings, viz , $5.
The low prices which will prevail in the Professor's parlors for the remaining
few days of thia week will necessitate hia: keeping his rooms open from 10 o'clock
in tbe morning until 9 o'clock at night each day. The Professor assumes this ex
tra labor in a very gracious manner, knowing, as he does, that daring the few days
that this extra tax is imposed upon him he ie doing the people ft favor that will
never be repeated here by any other spirit medium.
Absolutely no money taken from anybody unless the visitor expresses himself
or herself a a absolutely satisfied. All dealings are strictly private and confidential.

Good Reasons Given for His
Change of Heart.
The McKinley and Force Bills Drove
Him to It.
He Regards tbe Present Policy of the
Republican Party as Reckless,
Riotous and Revolutionary.
By tho Associated Press.
Philadelphia, Oct, 4.—Ex-Attorney-
General Wayne McVeagh has written a
letter to John Carter, secretary of the
Massachusetts Reform club, in which he
announces that he will vote for Grover
Cleveland. The writer finds himself in
full accord with the Democratic party,
and finds it more easy to act with them
because the Republican party, securing
its return to power four years ago by
promising to preserve matters as they
were, at once embarked upon what he
regards a reckless and revolutionary
policy, even overturning all the safe
guards of legislation in the house of
representatives in their haste to pass
the force bill and tbe McKinley bill,
both, to his mind, unnecessary and un
The economic evils, however great, ot"
the McKinley bill, and the unreason
able system of protection it represent*,
are of far less importance, to hie mind,
than the moral evils which follow in
their wake. In declaring for what pur
pose the masses of tbe people may prop
erly be taxed, it must not be forgotten
that taxes have a wonderful capacity
for filtering through intervening ob
stacles, till they reach tbe bowed back
of toil, and rest there; and therefore
giving bounties under any form of taxa
tion ia mainlyfthe giving away of the
wages of labor/ Rot even such inequal
ity and injustice afe tbe least of its
evils, for while such a system endures, %
political corruption is absolutely sure to
increase, as such a system not only in
vitee, but requires the corrupt use of
money, both at the polls and in con
The Republican party ought to be our
honest money party, and would be if it
could; but while it demanded increased
bounties for Javorite manufacturers it '
could not refuße increased bounties to
the silver producer, as the votes tbey
control were probably necessary to the
passage of the McKinley bill. The
poison of debased currency is making
itself more and more felt in every chan
nel of business and finance, and it ie
inevitably driving gold out of the
country and leading us to the evils of
fluctuation, and therefore dishonest cur
rency baaed upon silver alone.
The pension agents have joined hands
to increase their fees by indiscriminate
granting of pensions. The result is that
nearly a generation after the close of
the war there is a steady increase of the
vast sums passing through pension
agents' bands, until now tbe total
amount staggers belief, and has become
of itself a very serious burden upon the
treasury. Surely there is neither reason
nor justice in legislation which destroys
all distinction between the discharge of
duty and the shirking of it; between
loyal service and desertion of the colors;
between wounds received in battle and
diseases contracted in the pursuits of
There is still another great and in
creasing evil chiefly traceable, in hia
opinion, to the maintenance of an ex
cessive tariff since the war and constant
meddling with it to make it higher, and
that is the bringing to our shores of
vast swarms of undesirable immigrants.
Just as tbe duties upon imported mer
chandise has been increased, bo has the
grade of imported labor been lowered.
McVeagh is convinced that the causes
in which be is interested cannot hope
for success until the avowed policy of
the Republican party on the tariff is
The Maine Autocrat on the Stamp in
Boston, Oct. 4.—Music Jiali and Fan
enil ball were both filled to overflowing
tonigbt, when the Republicans ratified
the state and national nominatione,with
speeches by Whitelaw Reid, Governor
McKinley and others. Reid was given
a flattering reception. He spoke, in
part, as follows:
Mr. Reid eulogized the achievements
of the Republican party, and dwelt on
the changes threatened by the declara
tions of the Democratic platform. "It
has been said," eaid he, "that the Dem
ocrats do not mean what they say. If
you take that view, why encourage a
party that does not intend to do what it
promises, and, if its promises are ad
mittedly worthless, what guarantee
have you, if you give it power,
against going even further than
it has threatened? Is a tiger
so amusing and playful a creature that
it is worth while to turn bim loose, out
of mere curiosity to see what he will
do? That the Democratic party de
manded these changes, everybody
knows. But something has happened
since last Tuesday. They have been de
moralized. The' letter of acceptance
discloses a figure winch our aboriginal
friends of tbe far west would describe as
1 big-man-afraid of-his platfoim,' and the
party gazes in perplexity and alarm on
the candidate who accepts its nomina
tion, but has not shown either the can
dor to accept, or the courage to repudi
ate, its principles. The three vital
points in the platform are state bank
currency, reciprocity and tariff. On two
of them his letter is absolutely silent,
while be writes all around and about
tbe third,: hrough half his letter,
without once being able to Bay
in straightforward language whether
protection is unconstitutional, as his
party declares it, or right and expedient,
as Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jack
son declared it. Bat he does tell as that
. tariff reform ii still his purpose; that is

WILL VOTE FOR GROVER.
REID'S RANK ROT.
to pay the business of the country is to
have no peace. Everything must be
once more unsettled, and the whole tar
iff muet be turned over again to be
tinkered by a congress of that party
which, at Chicago, declared by a nearly
two-thirds majority for the English as
against tbe American system, and pro
nounced protection unconstitutional.
No qualifications or omissions or vague
generalities and assurances of harmless
intention can blind the voters to the fact
that, however much Mr. Clevelan may
regret it, as an honorable man he ie
bound hand and foot to the platform of
his party at Chicago, just as the world
knows he is today bound to the car of
the triumphant Tammany of New York.
" 'We deny that there has been an in
crease of prosperity since the McKinley
bill went into operation,' says Cleve
land's platform. New York's commiss
ioner of labor statistics, bank commis
sioner, and board of equalization Bay
there has been, and reportß from officers
in other states confirm it all."
Speaking of the discussion of the elec
tions bill, Reid eaid : "The question in
volved is: Shall every citizen of the
United States be lawfully entitled to
vote, be permitted to vote, and have his
vote fairly counted? The Republicans
say yes ; the Democratic platform prac
tically says no. Cleveland in thie case
has tbe courage frankly to sa7 ditto to
his platform. If this Democratic oppo
sition means anything, it meane the mil
HBoation of the fourteenth aud fifteenth
articles of the constitution."
Speaking of the restoration of tbe
merchant marine, Reid eaid: "The
Republican party has frankly adopted
the methods other nations have found
necessary, and voted subsidies to our
ships carrying our mails. Moreover,
two of the fastest and largest ships in
the world have been secured for a trane-
Atlantic line, four more are to be con
structed, and everi with these six, we
shall have a line of ships equal to the
best that enter English ports. That is
the Republican position in this reepect.
What does the Democratic platform say
aboutit? Nothing. What does Cleve
land say about it? Nothing. There is
one party in this campaign that does
not find it needful to slander the coun
try ; that doeß not seek for calamities
and does not read its own defeat in the
general prosperity. It has nothing to
conceal and says what it means."
