The Chinese swear they will fight the
Geary act to the bitter end, rather than
be compelled to have their photographs
taken and show them to our custom
house officers. Now we want to ask a
question pertinent to this subject—how
much worse are they off than any
American who visits Prussia or Austria,
and has to produce his passport every
time he crosses the border line of any of
those countries?
Attorney-General Hart has had the
(trace to abandon an obstructive attitude
which was uncalled for, and could not
be sustained, in the matter of the issue
of $395,000 worth of sewer bonds of the
city of Los Angeles. This official will
doubtless be a little more cautious in
future in meddling with the action of
the LO3 Angeles City council. The sale
of the bonds stand. Perhaps the attor
ney general will remember, in the
future, that it is time enough to give
his advice wben it is aektd for, or is in
the line of his official duties.
A great many people are asking why
the Board of Supervisors borrowed $75,
--000 for ninety days from the Sta'e Loan
and Trust company at a time when there
were $200,000 of the county's moneys iv
the hands of the County Treasurer. On
its face it looks like a very curious trans
action. Had this anything to do with
the enormous sums which were spent in
furnishing the County Court Houee, the
original estimates for which called for
only $50,000, but were swollen to nearly
$100,000. A little light on this Bubject
would be specially agreeable to tbe tax
This is perhaps as good a time as any
to remind the taxpayers of Los Angeles
that it costs them ju-'t $12 a minute to
run their city and county government.
That is, between city and county, they
are charged just two and a quarter mil
lion dollars for such government aB the
new court house and the new city hall
deal out to them. We believe we have
called the attention of our readers to
this fact before, but we shall refer to it
again before election day. In fact, we
Bhould not wonder if we were to refer to
it frequently.
The Chrouicle returns to its "mut
tons" on the senatorial question. The
Call, to which it has been the fashion
to allude as embodying all the decrepit
and Silurian features of journalism, is
turning up with surprising vigor these
piping campaign daye, and excelling all
its rivals in declamatory energy, with
just enough Attic salt thrown in to re
lieve its inveotives from the common
place. Mr. Da Young endeavors to place
hia anxiety as to tbe senatorehip strictly
on grounds of devotion to the interests
of the Republican party. The vener
able Pickering, on the other hand,
pricks thia bubble, and Bhows
tbe true inwardness of things. In
a threnody of touching vibrations
the editor of the "live" journal depicts
the great dangers of a lose of tbe United
States with a Democratic successor to
H iscock already assured from Democratic
New York in the event that California
should elect a Democratic United States
senator. Mr. Pickering remorselessly
points out the fact that Mr. de
interest in the matter is one part parti
san and two parts personal. The ven
erable editor of the Call must have
struck some elixir of youth, for he is
laying about him in a way to excite the
admiration of all those of both parties
who would like to see an untrammeled
man go to the United States senate from
Mr. Whitelaw Reid, in hie letter of
acceptance, lays great stress upon the
danger of the Democrats capturing the
United States senate. We are afraid
we will have to agree with Whitelaw.
The danger is imminent. Nay, the re
sult is inevitable. He adds that the
same influences which would elect a
Democratic president would insure a
Democratic senate and Democratic
house of representatives, and thus pass
all the depaitments of the government,
except the judiciary, over to the control
of the Democracy. Well, Whitelaw, we
guess the people can stand it. That
would be a white letter day, indeed,
for the United States, which would
witness such a revolution, and
it is coming with the swiftness with
which the herald Mercury waß wont to
light upon a heaven-climbing hill iv
the old classic days. And what a tarna
tion good thing it will be for the Demo
cratic party when this great desideratum
is attained! Mr. Reid probably has no
idea of the unnumbered blessings that
will flow from the event whose happen
ing he deprecates. Then will be re
sumed the era of responsible and Demo
cratic government which was suspended
when Mr. Cleveland left the White
house. The soul of the Repub.i
can candidate is harrowed with
agony at the idea that
a government Democratic in its execu
tive and legislative departments might
redress some of the intolerable evils of
the McKinley bill. It undoubtedly
would. It would remember that a Re
publican commission, over which Mr.
Henry W. Oliver, a leading Pittsburg
iron-master, presided, reported ten
years ago that there ought to be mate
rial reductions in the tariff. The whole
sentiment of the people of the United
States demanded reductions, in the in
terest of the consumer and manufac
turer alike, at the very time when
McKinley added unconecionably to
their burdens. Mr. Reid will be
obliged to conjure with some
other wand if he desires to secure
the ear of the overtaxed voter of these
United States. In spite of all he can
say or do, the country is surely gravi
tating back to the control oi a party
which has shown, in the past, that it
knowß how to treat all classes and all
interests in an impartial and enlight
ened manner. The protected industries
and the trusts have never had a more
devoted and unscrupulous servitor than
Mr. Whitelaw Reid, and his weight will
help to sink below the waves the Har
rißon craft, which is already water
logged. Whitelaw's special plea counts
for nothing.
The consummation of the Bale of the
Citizens' Water company's property and
franchise to the City Water company,
which we are told has been effected, re
lieves the hill portion of the city
from the urgency which was set up as a
reason why tne people should vote for
$520,000 worth of bonds in order to con
struct headworks, etc., to supply that
portion of the city with water. The
City company can now afford epeedier
relief to those living in the hills than
could be had even with the bonds
voted and work commenced aB
speedily as possible by the city. There
is no doubt that the old company with
ita facilities can give the hills a large
supply of pure water in sixty to one
hundred days, whilst the shortest time
we have heard mentioned in which to
secure a new supply by the city is one
year. Nothing, therefore, will be gained
by voting the bonds at once. We have
six years in which to prepare the entire
water eystem of Los Angeles, both for
the hills and the lower levels, and it
would be folly to encumber ourselves
prematurely with a debt of $526,000 for
a fraction of the great work tbat we
shall be enabled to undertake as a
Why thia bond election should have
been thrust upon the people in the
midst of an exciting presidential cam
paign has puzzled everybody. Tbe
election could just as well have been
called for a time wben the people would
not have been absorbed in national and
county politics, and when they would
have had their minds free to examine
the subject calmly and carelully.
There ia another feature bearing on
this matter in the result of the state
election which ought not to have been
overlooked by the council. An amend
ment to the constitution ia to be voted
upon on the Bth of November which will
doubtless result in authorizing cities to
extend the makiiig of bonds issued by
them to forty, instead of twenty years,
aa now. Thit is a very important mat
ter to the taxpayers, and nothing but
the extremest urgency should cause us
to fail to take advantage of the probable
adoption by the people of the amend
Suspicion always attaches to a meas
ure of this kind when undue and inde
cent haste characterizes the official steps
taken to carry it through. The adding
of over half a million of indebtedness to
tbe hard-tested taxpayers of this city is
not auch a trifle tnat deliberation and
thorough discussion should not precede
definite action upon it. Snap judgment
is alwaya open to objection, and particu
larly bo when it involves so momentous
a proposition aa the saddling of a large
debt upon the public.
,The Republicane don't want tbe beat
of any bargain, do they T Some time ago
tbe territory of Arizona floated a loan to
a New York banking house, composed
of three prominent Republican politi
cians. These fellows want to send tbeir
greenbacks to Arizona for bonds made
payable in gold coin, and refuse to take
the bonds unless so specified.
Ventura county is getting together a
very fine exhibit for the world's fair.
The collection of preserved fruits, small
grain, etc., is now on display at the
Rofe house, and is well worth the in
spection of anyone passing through Ven
tura. Tne fruits are put up in large
glass jars, hermetically sealed, and con
sist of specimens of pears, peaches,
quinces, prunes, apricots, etc., that
are not only of very fine appear
ance, but some of them of enormous
size. The exhibit of honey in the comb
will attract especial attention. It ap
pears inside of white glass bottles, of all
curious shapes and sizes, and is con
spicuous for its clearness, and the deli
cate regularity of the waxen cells. As
the comb is larger than the neck of the
bottle, one is puzzled to tell how it got
there, until informed that the beeß
themt elves built it inside the flasks.
This is an exhibit that will prove very
interesting to world's fair visitors, and
prove of value to Ventura county as an
advertisement of its productions.
Fkom all sides we learn that the pow
erful arraigompnt of the corrupt rule of
the ring, contained in Mr. 11. C. Dillon's
speech, published in Sunday's Hkrai.d,
has produced a powerful effect upon
voters, irrespective of party. The aver
age citizen by jo means looks through
the same spectacles as our esteemed
contemporary, the Express.
Thk crush in Chicago yesterday must
have been quite out of the common.
God pity the poor wight who had occa

a hotel. Chauncey M. Depew said the
fair would be worth $300,000,000 to the
city fortunate enough to secure it. The
enterprisipg denizens of that burg are
determined to improve on these figures.

In Arizona, the Republican central
committee is assessing all the federal
officeholders a percentage on their sala

to the election of a Republican delegate

The Grand. —The presentation of
Niobe last night at the Grand was a
it-ahy delightful event. The plan of the
play has been heretofore outlined in
these columns, so that it suffices to say
that the conceit of the Queen of Thebes
brought to life in a modern drawing
room through the agency of electricity
is ctrried out to perfection. The con
ceit was a happy one, and from its very
novelty a sparkling and witty dialogue,
iv the hands of such consummate ariists
a 9 the Paultons, waß almost unavoid
able. The beautiful wife,of Amphion
wakes to life amidst the litter of a New
York house of the ordinary modern vul
gar mould. She steps down from her
pedestal in the chaste and simple and
severely classical drees in which tbe
gracious matron born in Athens aud
ruling in Thebes would have offendtd
no one in her own times and amongst
her own people, and which could only
offend a prurient purist of today. The
c implications arising from her antique
manners and speech, when thrown into
a frivolous and not at all diguifitd com
pany, are indescribably funny. It would
be unjust to Isabelle Coe. who per
sonated Niobe, not to say
that she looked and acted the
antique celebrity to perfection, which is
anotfier way of Baying that she was
graceful and statuesque. It ia very
doubtful whether an Athenian dame
would suffer by a comparison with the
belle of the drawing room of today. The
part rtquired high artistic capacity, and
the requirement was most admirably
met by this gifted actress.
Mr. George R. Edeson, as Peter Amos
Dunn, the reviver of Niobe from her
sleep of centuries, is an exceedingly
clever comedian, and was a henpecked
husband of melancholy visage who man
sued to create an immense amount of
hilarity amongst the audience. He is
desperately funny, and kept the houee
in a roar with the very material assist
ance of the revivified Niobe. Minnie
Monk gave a good character sketch in
Helen Griffin. The rest of the cast was
fair, but calls for no special note.
Niobe has nothing' in common with
Galatea but the fact that in both life is
breathed into a marble statue. As some
lines appeared in the Herald, afier
wards corrected, stating that the play
verged upon indelicacy, we again say
that there is not a line in it which could
justly offend the most fastidious. It rip
ples with pure and innocent fun, and
fun of a cleverly constructed sort, from
opening line to end. We will just add
that those of our amusement goers who
fail to see it will miss a great treat. It
is given tonight and tomorrow night and
at a matinee Saturday.

The indications are that Columbus
day will be celebrated in Los Angeles
today with elaborateness.
Yesterday the city began to put on its
gala attire, and by night business houses
