There is something very attractive in
modesty wnerever it is found. It gen
erally iakea on its most captivating
form in the shape of a pretty girl, but it
ie found in both eexes and at all ages.
It even cropß out in a journalist at times,
contrary to the general belief. That this
can be true is shown in the case of Mr.
M. H. De Young, who, the other day, in
his own paper, claimed the credit of
originating the plan of throwing the
Manufacturers Building on the World's
Fair Grounds under one roof, and Eup
porticg it by steel trusses.
Some cf the Republican journals had
the gizzard to object when Mr. Cleve
land, an illustrious ex-president, and
the Democratic nominee for the presi
dency, presumed to consume two col
umns in formulating his views in
answer to the compliment paid him by
bis fellow citizens in the shape of a
letter of acceptance. When it comes to
Mr. Whitelaw Reid, however, tht»y will
probably say nothing, although that
gentleman, a nominee merely for the
vice-preeidency, has had the unex
ampled gall to consume nearly cix thou
sand worde in signifying hia acceptance
of a minor nomination. That Reid ie
Buffering from a violent attack of
capitis elephantiasis is the only explana
tion for hia having had the hardihood to
assume that anybody cared to hear from
him to that extent.
The esteemed Express, being unable
to wrestle with Mr. H. C. Dillon's fig
ures, as embodied in that gentleman's
address*, published in Sunday's Herald,
undertakes to be sarcastical in its refer
ences to the Democratic candidate for
diatrict attorney. It is pretty safe to
assume that the Long Beach farmer and
lawyer has got bis work in in very good
shape, and that the bolt has sped home,
or the Juggernaut car of wit of the even
ing luminary would not essay to roll
over him. The people are "onto" these
figures, which Mr. Dillon and the Her
ald have made familiar to them, and
it is pretty safe to predict that they
are pasted in numberless hate for use
on election day. As Muntilini would
say, the properiy-owner considers it a
"demnition" shame that his yearly
taxes should be swollen almost to the
proportions of a rent. No amount of
persiflage or cheap attempts at wit will
convince a man that he out;ht to permit
himself to be taxed out of bouGe and
home, when all that iB necessary for him
to do to protect himself is to Bend a lot
of pampered politicians to the right
about. The people are in earnest, and
are tired of being fleeced iv order to
build up in Los Angelea a local bureau
cracy as to whose exactions there would
be absolutely no limit.
Just dow the country is being flooded
with circulars intended for gudgeons—
probably largely for Republi-an con
sumption—in which Mr. Cleveland is
held up as the enemy of the soldier, Mr.
Stevenson is represented as having been
a Knight of the Golden Circle, and the
whole of old England is said to be pray
ing devoutly for the success of the Dem
ocratic ticket, and contributing money
towards that end. It would seem in
credible that any one should think it
worth while to contribute money for the
diesemination of such rot, and yot
it is floating around the coun
try broadcast, and doubtless ev
erybody who looks like a fool is sup
plied with it. The more reputable
Republican journals, of course, do not
deal in such rubbish. All fair minded
men understand Mr. Cleveland's atti
tudge on the pension question, and
know exactly tbe animus of his vetoes.
They were to protect the treasury of the
United States from thedemandsof spur
ious claimants. His sentiments to
wards the real soldier have been friendly
in the extreme. As for the charge that
Gen. Stevenson was ever a Knight of the
Golden Circle, that gentleman has re
peatedly denied it, and the self-respect
ing Republican press have dropped it.
Finally, as to that stale old Briti6h stuff
and nonsense it has become such a
"chestnut," to use the cant phrase,
tbat its circulation ia confined to lunatic
asylums and a few other out of the way
The Republicans, who are fully cogni
zant of the weakness of their own cam
paign, complacently assume that it is
lifeless on both sides There was never
a more baseless or ridiculous assump
tion than that. The truth is that the
Democracy is full ot enthusiasm ; that it
started off enthusiastic at the jump;
and that the popular tide which is to
carry Mr. Cleveland into the White
House is rising steadily, nnd will be at
flood on the Bth of November. There is
perhaps not much excitement in Cali
fornia, but this is often a phleg
matic state unless on distinct
ively local issues. We are so far from
the center of political agitation, and our
population was shut out for so long a
time from instant communication with
the east, that we have allowed ourselves
to cultivate an apathetic spirit. But
this is in no sense the case in the east.
All over that section there is a redhot
enthusiasm for a man who is unques
tionably the people's choice. The fear
which prevailed at the start that there
would be dissension in the party in
New York has evaporated into thin air.
No Democratic nominee was ever greeted
with more enthusiasm than attended
the announcement of the action
of the Chicago convention. The follow
ers of David Bennett Hill not only
accepted the action of that body with
their customary paity loyalty, but en
thusiastically and unreservedly. A
united Democracy in New York has but
oue significance, and that is, Democratic
victory in the nation. A movement
which is strong enough to carry New
York means, also, a victory in Connecti
cut, while nothing can shake the steady
fidelity of New Jersey. Mr. Harrison
only carried Indiana in 1888 by tbe
elender plurality of 2128, and Bince then
be has dieguettd thousands in his own
elate, while Mr. Cleveland is thousands
stronger in Hoosierdom than he was
in that year. That Mr. Cleveland will
carry the solid south no sane politician
doubts. Admitting that the Democrats
Bhould lose West Virginia, that loss
would be off-Eet by the gain in electoral
votes which will accrue to the Demo
cracy, through the decision of the Re
publican supreme court of the United
States, in the Miner case, in Michigan.
This, without relying upon any com
binations between the Democracy and
the People's party in Euch states as
Kansas, or depending upon the defec
tion of any of the silver or other Repub
lican states, we have Mr. Cleveland
surely elected.
That Harrison's partizans know the
dangers which menace their chief there
is abundant evidence. They never
would have resorted to the desperate ex
pedient of sending Dave Martin to New
York city to supervise their campaign if
they had not been fully aware of the
perils ahead. Here is a man known all
over the east for his infamies in connec
tion with debasing the suffrage, put at
the head of the canvass. Mr. McManes,
one 6f the leaders of the Republicans of
Philadelphia, stamps him as a ballot
box stuffer, a rascal and trickster. The
characterof Mr. McManeeand his stand
ing in his own party lend an impressive
force to his arraignment of thiß villain
who haa been dispatched from tbe
Quaker to the Empire City to debauch
the voters of the latter. It would serve
the rascal right if he were run into the
North or East river, and drowned like a
rat. Tbe fat is Eaid to have been fried
out of the manufacturers to the tune of
$2,000,000, and Martin is to have tbe
handling of this vast sum in order to
prostitute the suffrage. With Welling
ton it was ''Blucher or night." With
the Republicans it is "New York or de
But Democrats need not dread the is
sue. The people of the Empire Btate
are aroused as they never were before.
New Yorkers are deeply sensible of the
outrage which the sending of a man like
Martin to buy up their State has in
flicted upon them. They will show by
their votes that they resent it. The
demonstrations in favor of Cleveland
and Stevenson are of mammoth propor
tions. There is a great silent vote that
the Democratic ticket is sure to receive,
and that would of itself determine the
reEult. Meanwhile, Harrison stands in
mortal fear of losing hiß own etate. It
is all very well to say tbat state pride
will secure the vote of Indiana for her
favorite son. But Mr. Harrison is not
the favorite son of Indiana by many re
moves. There is scarcely a distinguished
Indianan of either party who could not
beat him before the people. He has
gone on minnifying in popularity where
he "lived, moved and had his being"
ever since he entered the White
House. He has disappointed innumera
ble people, and outraged others. His
almost open identification with Dudley
and other disreputable and even crim
inal wire-pullers, has lost him the res
pect of the better classes of Republicans.
It is ridiculous to say that a presidential
candidate cannot lose his own state.
Horace Greeley bad both the Democrat ie
and the People's party's nomination for
president, and yet be was beaten out of
sight in his own state. Such examples
might be multiplied, and they will read
ily occur to the reader.
By way of conclusion to an article
which ia already long enough, we will
just say that it would astonish some
people to know the number of Republi
cans who privately concede that the
Democrats will carry California. Ne
vada seems to be a downright Democrat
ic certainty.
The little emeute between the mayor
of our city and the attorney-general of
this state, as given in our local columns,
is a singular thing for our Republican
subscribers to read; and reading, to
reflect that their votes should ever have
called to the legal portfolio of the state,
a man so utteily incompetent as an
officer and so wholly unreliable as a
man, as Attorney-General Hart has
proven himself to be.
In the matter of his interference,
without solicitation and without war
rant, in the sewer bonds case, he will
find but few apologists in his own party
and none in the ranks of the opposition.
This outfall sewer matter is not a polit
ical question. Our most earnest advo
cates of Democracy stand shoulder to
shoulder, upon this question at least,
with men who voted for Abraham Lin
coln before the war clouds lowered upon
the devoted battlements of Sumter.
An object lesson on this matter,
drawn from the great south continent,
may not be wholly amies in this con
nection. The water in tbe colonies of
Victoria and South Australia, is so far
below the surface of tbe earth that
malarial fevers, which prevail in the
San Joaquin and Sacramento valleys
during the summer months, are wholly
unknown there. But in the cities of
Melbourne and Adelaide, the scourge of
typhoid begins to rage with unparalleled
virulence at the first approach of sum
Melbourne iB still in the malodorous
condition peculiar to surface drainage,
but the citizens of Adelaide began a
step forward in 1885. The city pur
chased a tract of 840 acres from tbe
crown aB a sewnge farm, and built an
outfall sewer leading to it, with an inter
nal system tributary to the outfall drain.
There are never more than 160 acres of
the 840 on tbe sewage farm used at one
time aa a receptacle of filth; and, ac a
consequence, the other GOO acres readily
rent at £3 per annum to Chinese
gardeners, paying the city over 12 per
cent income on the cost of the hind. In
the meantime thedeath rate of lelaide
has decreaeed from 22 per cent m
per cent, while Melbo-.rne, the richest
city south of the equator, is struggling
against it 'eath rate of 24.
It was with a view of bringing about
results similar to those achieved in Ade
laide that the citizens of Los Angeles,
already taxed heavily for other
needed local improvements, put their
shoulders to the wheel and voted to
incur a debt of $395,000 for the cole
purpose of maintaining the reputation
of Lob Angeles as the healthiest of
American cities. Of what use is our
otherwise balmy air, if sewer gas is to
invade every home and the microbes of
diphtheria strangle our loved children ?
Therefore it is that our public-spirited
people have willingly bowed their shoul
ders to a righteous tax, in the hope of
continuing our prestige ac a health re-
Bort; and it is chiefly as an obstruction
ist of this long-needed sanitary measure
that Attorney-General Hart will be
hereafter best known to our people.
In the question of veracity between
himself and Councilman Nickel!, of our
Firßt ward, the attorney general must
take care of himself. We are neither
his assailant nor his e.pologißt. But what
kind of a lawyer, and especially estate's
attorney is it, who, according to his own
admiseion, eigns a letter without know
ing its contents? Considering his prom
inence in the affair, he has been be
trayed into a most humiliating
Imagine the queen ot Thebes, who
3000 years ago, accordicg to the myth
oloKical story, was petrified into insen

constructors as the Paultons, the possi

able. Niobe is now in its second season,
and if we mistake not, its drawing qual

for tonight at the Grand opera house.

Curran's saloon on Main street, near
First, was entered by a burglar, and $75
stolen. The man had broken open the
back door and was behind the counter
in the act of taking the money out of the
caeh drawer, when Curran, the pro
prietor, unlocked to front door and en
tered, with a few friends, to take a
drink. The gas jets were still horning,
and seeing the man behind the counter,
the propiietor thought the barkeeper
was in the back room, and that the fel

Curran asked for the bar-keeper; the
man motioned to the back room, and as
Curran walked backward the till-tapper
walked nut of the front door and es
caped. The man was seen in the saloon
several times during the afternoon and
evening, and is well known. The pro

a crime had be not seen it. It is under

with murdering his wife in July, 1887.
He was examined once before on the
charge and acquitted. Tho case has
been revived on W. W. Hall's statement
of newly discovered evidence.
Dr. M. M. Kannon testified that Alice
Kegel, the wife of the defendant, died
about five years ago at the Sisters' hos
pital. She had two ribs broken, one of
which punctured tbe left lung, causing'
Valentine Mann testified that he was
a retired farmer, and come two years ago
had a conversation with Kegel at his
(Kegel's) houee at San Fernando, in re
gard to the woman's death. He asked
Kegel why he had accused Hall of being
the cause of his wife's death, remarking
that it was an outrageous art. Kegel re
pli d that his wife waa easily persuaded
to lay the blame upon Hall, asshe bated
him co badly. While Kegel in the con
versation, would not admit that he was
the man who broke hia wife's ribs, he
said that it was a good thing for him
that she was dead.
