The Democrats having aupplemented their excellent county ticket by a capital city ticket, there will be pyrotechnics all along the line, with victory at the end. It is hardly time for the snow to fly, but the prediction of Governor Camp hell, of Qh\o t that "Cleveland wjll have a toboggan slide into office," reminds us that winter ia not far off. Two weeks from today we will be hailing the plain Democrat, Grover Cleveland, aa president of the United States once more. The people want the quiet man back there again. A man waß taken to the police station yeaterday on the supposed grounds of insanity, for merely saying that he in tended to be elected to the United Statea senate. And yet Mike De Young is at large. Max Popper, chairman of the Demo cratic state central committee, haa sent a telegram to the different chairmen of county committeea requeeting the can celing of all public meetings on Friday and Friday night, in honor of the obae quiea ot Mrs. Harrison. "The wild aas of the tall tower," aB George Wilkea used to style Whitelaw Reid, will find it hard work to make people read thosft nine long columns of his acceptance letter and then believe that he ia a man of good, ordinary com mon sense, like Adlai E. Stevenson. The frien le of Roacoe Conkling, whom he denounced as a traitor to the Repub lican party, have not yet forgotten their illustrious leader, though be be dead. They inhabit the strongest Republican counties of New York atate, and they will not vote for Whitelaw. The San Francisco Examiner givea figures to ebow that tbe great register of that city has been Btuffed by the Re publican boßßea, Crimmina and Kelley, aided by Buckley'a successor, Sam Rainey, to the extent of 9000 fraudulent names. The election commissioners have done all in their power to prevent any correction of the list by refusing to iaaue citations. The only thing left honest citizens to do to modify this wholesale fraud on an honeat ballot, ia to organize an extensive corps of chal lengers at the polls, and the Democrats are taking steps to carry out euch a pro gramme. Only a Btaort time ago the Republican campaigners were distending their lungs claiming Gen. Daniel E. Sickles as a con vert to Harrison and Reid. This was founded upon some remarks of a petu lant nature made by Gen. Sickles at the Chicago convention,when he was warmly advocating Hill for the presidency and, of course, opposing Mr. Cleveland. We are now obliged to let in the light upon this supposititious conversion or perver sion to Harrison. The hero of Gettys burg made a speech at Utica, the other day, in which he proclaimed LOS ANGELES HERALD THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 27, 1892. his loyalty to Cleveland and the Democratic party. Alluding to the private pension bills that Cleve land had vetoed, the general said tbat he (Sickles) had examined the matter carefully, that tbey ought to have been vetoed and that he would have vetoed tbem himself. Thus falls tbe super structure bo laborioualy raiaed by our friend the enemy. In the case of Gen. Henry W. Slocum, on whose loyalty to the Democratic ticket doubts had been cast by Republicans, the same enthusi astic advocacy of Cleveland has been shown. The Republican assumption that the Union veteran is a fool does not aeem to be warranted by the facta. A THIRD TERM CANDIDATE. Mr. Jabez Banbury, the Republican candidate for county treasurer for a third term, has been quietly assumed to be an official without reproach. But, as a matter of fact, a good deal of a job ber is Jabez, by jabers, as the Irishman would say. Thia interesting public functionary hap, of course, considerable dealings with the state treasurer. He is obliged to remit that portion of the taxes raised in Los Angeles county which, under the law, accrues to the state. It is generally understood tbat these remittances have been by draft, the actual deportation of the coin not being necessary. In every case Mr. Banbury has charged expressage on these remittances to the state capital—ex pressage or exchange. On June 17, 1889, he charged $1 75 per $1000 for ex preeaage on $90,000 worth of court house bonds. He could easily have made a 75 cent rate by applyingto Welle, Fargo & Co. This $1.75 rate applied un til, on February 5, 1890, he chose to raise it to $2.50 on $522,256 86, the amount involved in his settlement with the atate treasurer. Thia amounted to the handsome little sum of $1,244.32. There is jo question but that, in the transmission of such large soma, a special rate could have been readily made. There ia ample ground for the belief tbat these remittancea were not made by express but by draft, and Brother Jabez appears to have profited to the utmost by hia poßition. Not only is there thia quite apparent little piece of sharp practice to be noted in Mr. Banbury's administration of hie official trust, but the law enjoins him to keep a cash account in a businesa like manner, which shall be open to the inspection of every taxpayer, and thia, we are informed, he has never done. It strikes ua that, nailer the circum atances, Brother Jabez comes high. Voters are no. enamored of third-term candidates, anyhow. After filling one term, if a man is deserving, a second term ia a fitting recognition of hia firat. But the voter feela inclined to draw the line at a third term. It was even drawn on TJiysaes S. Grant, and the aame prin ciple applies to smaller fry. The Repub licans, in nominating Jabez Banbury, violated thia time honored tradition, and the voters will probably rebuke the innovation at the polla. BOWERS IN A HOLE. Ail the indications are exceedingly fa vorable to the election of Hon. Olin Welborn to Congress from the Seventh diatrict. One term of Bowers would be enough for any constituency under the sun. The district ia close at best, and the high character, sterling Democracy, statesmanship and exceptional elo quence of Mr. Weiborn are winning him hosts of Republican votes, while the Democratic massea are enthusiastic for him. The charge haa been made that though Mr. Bowera haa received the large mileage allowetl to a Pacific Coaat member of Congresa for traveling expensea, he and his family have trav eled on paseea. In such a charge there ia something of grave moment. In the firat place, a member of congress should be beholden to no cor poration, especially to no corporation that ia asking from that body tbe ex tension of its obligations to the national treasury. In the second place, if Mr. Bowerß has traveled free, there waa a downright false pretence and dishonesty in accepting the money of the govern ment for expenses which were met from another source. It ia doubtful whether Bowerß would be aeueible of a delicate point of honor like tbat, but the votera of the Seventh diatrict will probably not be so obtuse. Thua far the wily "Bow Wow" has dodged the iaaue, aa the fol lowing, from the San Diego Union, a Republican journal, would indicate: Nothing could occur juat at thia par ticular juncture that would prove ao un fortunate to the Republican party or to tbe interests of the Seventh congrea aional diatrict, from which Mr. Bowerß is seeking a re-election to congress, as the accusation tbat he traveled with hia family on Southern Pacific passes when returning come weeks ago from Washington. The Union believes tbat the statement ia false, and that Mr. Bowera will thrust the lie down the throat of tbe man with whom it orig inated. Thia paper just a few days ago believed and referred to the fairness with which the congressional contest bad thus far been maintained, and con gratulated tbe party for having waged its battles on principle and not on per sonalities. Believing in tbe honor of Mr. Bowera, that he was thoroughly in corruptable, that he could not be bought either by money or by railroad passes, and that he waa true to tbe interests of hia constituents, The Union haa waited in silence for him to brand as aucb the infamouß falsehood which haa been pro mulgated against bim. Aa he did not communicate with The Union yeaterday, it did not know tbat he waa in San Diego until after he bad left to fill an engagement to apeak at Redlands and, thinking that he must not have heard of the false report that had been pub liahed, or that he would have called at thie office to deny the allegations there in contained, a telegram, of which the following is a copy, waa sent to him at Redlanda: "Plea«e authorize us to deny in tomorrow's Union the fa'se rumor that you accepted passes lor yourself snd family oyer the Sonibern Pa cific en route from congress, as was pub isbed In last night's San Dlegan and tbe Los Angeles Buniiay Times, and follow telegram with your affidavit denying it. Answer immediately. San Diego Union Company." Still feeliDg confident of Mr. Bowere's innocence, the columns of the Union will be held open foi his early denial oi the story, which was doubtless invented for campaign purposes. Our contemporary is right. Make Bowers toe the scratch and tell all about tboee paaaea. Hia failure to comply with the Union's requeat ia a confession of guilt. ___________ The attempt to influence votes in favor of the $526,000 bond iaßue by Bay ing tbat a great deal of labor will be em ployed upon the fraction of a water eyetem the bonds are to pay for, is a piece of demagogy that ahould have no weight with intelligent men. If the incurring of this debt is premature and ill-advised, workingmen w.ill suffer for it aa well as others. A very large propor tion of our workingmen are the ownera of tbeir homes, and they will have to pay in taxes for any mistakes of thia character tbat may be made. We be lieve that the city will become the owner of the entire water system of Los Angeles in six yeara from now—perhaps before. What senße is there, then, in assuming over half a million of indebt edness at tbe preaent time for the frac tion of a system that will be uaeleaa when the city aasumea control of the whole system? Especially is thia the case when the question of urgency in securing a supply of pure water for the hill diatrict is met by the fact that the old company has/nade arrangements to furnieh that supply. This qneßtion should be argued upon reasonable grounds, and not be permitted to drift into demagogical appeals. One week from Tueaday the United Statea will be in a fever of excitement, to know who ia president elect—Harrison or Cleveland. The battle ground ia be lieved to be in New York, but even that may be a hallucination warranted only by hietory. Massachusetts haa twice elected a Democratic governor within the past ten yeara; and while El Kins is moving heaven and earth to carry West Virginia for Harrison, still the latter is certain to loae both Idaho and Montana, and, perhapa, the centennial state of Colorado, for hia wholesale tergiversa tion upon the silver question. So that Harrieon, even granting that he may carry New York, ia liable to loae so many electoral votea hitherto conceded to him aa to throw the election over into the house of repreaentatives, by which Mr. Cleveland ig sure of an election. Oregon ia certain to go for Harrieon, not only through the vast wool interest in that atate but through tho perfidy of Governor Pennoyer who, after being elected by the Democracy, ia now driv bia knife into Mr. Cleveland. However, Oregon ia a very email atate and Cali fornia's gain will more than compensate for the losa of the Webfcot nation. Mrs. Baldwin, who waa a missionary in China, is denouncing the exclusion policy before eastern audiences. She says that ahe met with more considera tion and was treated with greater de ferercc lv China than in the United StatM, where she haa been threatened with assault and haa held her life in danger. Mra. Baldwin muat have lived in other parte oi China than in those portions where the misaionariea last year had to flee for their lives and eeek the protection of English and American guuboatß. We cannot imagine in what portion of thia country ahe could have been where the people are in the habit of threatening and aßsaulting iadiea. She is perhapa the victim of aome sort of racial hallucination. AMUSEMENTS. Low Akokles Thbater. —Tbe Loa An gelea Treble Clef club gave ita first con cert for thia, its fourth season, at the Loa Angeleß Theater last night, before a large and fashionable audience. The event waa a notable one in the his tory of the club and in the evolution of the musical taste of the city. The organization has become more perfect in its art each year, and connoieeeura were delighted at the ex quisite rendition of the numbers on the programme. It was a brilliant aelectiou, brilliantly executed, and those who have been close observers of the growth of musical talent in the city could not but be greatly pleased with auch a practical illustration of tbeir claims that Los An geles posaeaaea a generous supply of cultivated voicea for the finest choral effects. Tbe programme waa arranged to bring out the finest lights and shades in the training of the chorus, and there were few thinga to be desired in the work. Under the admirable tutelage of Mrs. Jirah D. Cole they sang with spirit and in perfect subjection to the wand of the conductress, and were an admirable foil to the exceedingly sweet aoprano of Mias Elizabeth Kimball and magnificent basao of Herr Josef Rubo in the cantata parts. Miaa Kimball's singing of the arias of the Queen of the Sea, in Ferdinand Hummel's dainty cantata, waa a muaical treat of a high order. She haa a aoprano voice of rare aweetnesß, combined with clearness and strength, and sings with tbe confidence of careful training. Herr Rubo waa in admirable voice, and the audience complimented him with an enthusiastic recall. The programme was as follows : The Cantanta, queen of the sea ..Fred Hummel Aye Maria Johannes Brahms Little Klsie wllliam Best Dr Kenegat, Herr Rubo Donizetti Song from Osslan's Flngal Johannes Brahm The Wish Kuclttn The Lost Chord (Harmonized by Andersen) *ullivfin Dance song Max yon Welnzerl The club membera were arranged upon the atage in a Bemicirch", the back rows raised, and the ladies were dreaeed in handsome costumes oi white and cream colors. There were some tasteful floral piecea at tbe wings, and the conductress' stand waa covered with evergreena and chrye anthemums. Mrs. James G. Ogilvie was the accom panist, and too much praise cannot be given for the skillful manner in which she performed her duties. The concert is only one oi other de lightful events which may be expected ot the club in the future. Grand—Of late years women have pushed their way to the tors in the mat ter of play writing. One of these chosen women, whose worth has lately asserted itself, is Mrs. Romualdo Pacheco, wife of ex Governor Pacheco, tbe author of Incog. Nothing But Money, her latest, is a piece entirely local, and is social in texture. Ita story ia of the complex kind, which seems inseparable from laughable stage production*, and ie de veloped with directness. The events of tbe play cover little more than 24 hours of time, and tbe scene ia a country houae on tbe Hudeon. On the ecene are nu merous people, among them four or five women whoae life threads have in the past crossed other. But it is only when a rollicking young American and a booby English lord appear on the ecene that these people begin to feel the effects of what haa gone before. The American ia a devil-may-care chap, whoae reckless adventureaome neßS has led him into the by-paths of prudence, and it bo happens that he has been the tangling element in the Uvea of moat of tbe persona about bim. The complications are all in love affairs, but they are decidedly numercua and, aa they work out. decidedly funny. Of course the key to the situation finally lodges in tbe hands of a woman—it must be remembered tbat a woman ia tbe au thor of the play—and tbe tangle ia nicely straightened out. And, though this may be pointing the reverse of a moral, everybody find money mingled with love and happiness in the end. The George W. Lederer atock comedians ap pear at the Grand opera house thia and Friday and Saturday nighta. Tangled Up, which will be presented at the Grand opera house Tuesday and Wednesday evenings of next week, ia an adaptation from tbe French. The story revolves around a midnight drive, an exchange of grips, similarity of names, and two babies. Everyone is playing at crosß purposes and the title ia justifia ble, for a more mixed up crowd than the characters in thie piece were never thrown together by the moat designing French playwright. Messrs. DeLange and Hieing, the two stars of the organi zation, have surrounded themßelves with some excellent people, aa the following names will show: Alex. Clark, the tal ented young comedian; Agnes Stone, a Bister of Marie Stone, of tbe Boatonians, a charming comedienne and possessor of a fine mezzo-soprano voice; Lottie Mor timer, the petite soubrette and dau aeuae, who will introduce in the comedy the much-talked-oi serpentine dance; Gilbert Gregory, formerly of Henry Dixey 'a Adonia company; Albert Brown; Mica Jerrie Allaire, a charming ingenue; Lillian Cummingß, a handsome young debutante; and G. R. Pollard. Tbe Ideal guitar and banjo club give their first concert at tbe opera-house, next Monday evening. They will be as sisted by Miaa Grace Miltimore, eoprano and Prof. G. A. Hough, recitationiat. SOCIETY. Mr. and Mrs. John Shirley Ward gave to their many friends, on Saturday even ing last, a moet enjoyable entertain ment, a doubie affair, as they celebrated the 25th anniversary of their marriage, and at the aame time tendered the re ception to their eon, Shirley 0. Ward, and hia bride, wbo ia tbe daughter of Mr. Jefferson Chandler, the eminent lawyer, formerly of St. Louie, now of New York city. The houses of Mr. and Mra. J. S. Ward and Mra. Flourney were thrown together by an awning, lighted with Japaneae lanterns, the re ception taking place in Mr. Ward's, the refreshments served in Mra. Flonrney's. Tbe three brides were charmingly gra cious in manner, and wore exquisite gownß; one dress, being 25 years of age, attracted much notice, and the two younger brides were named to keep theirs as well. The flower decorations we're unusnally tasteful, the front parlor all white flowere, the back parlor in yel low, the music room in red, the hall with variegated bloasoma. Tbe table decora tions were red on one, and pink on the other. Everyone aaid it was, for so large an affair, the moat delightful in every respect they had ever attended in Loa Angeleß. Certainly a more accompliabed host and attractive hostess are rarely Been. They were assisted in receiving by Mr. Hodmen and hie charming Mem phis bride. Among the invited guests wete Judge and Mra.

A Mysterious Disappearance. Santa Barbara, Oct. 26.—The little suburb of Monticello is all excitement over the disappearance of a young man named Frank Morrow who since last Thursday has not been seen. He had been in the employ of the owners of the Crocker ranch for the past two yearß. He was a steady young man and pop ular in tbe Valley. No reason can be given for bis disappearance. LOCAL POLITICS. THE DEMOCRATS CONSIDER THEIR CHANCES EXCELLENT. A Good Word for Mr. Dillon-How In diana Standi—An Opinion From An Expert. Notea. The Democratic county central com mittee is receiving aome very encourag ing reports from over the county of tbe progress of the county campaign. Tbe people are becoming awakened to Re publican extravagance and corruption, and have arrived at the conclusion that they have had about all of it tbat they care for for a while. They want a change, and intend to vote to get it. A FRIEND OF LAROR. A correspocdent sends tbe following: "This gentleman, candidate ior district attorney -on the Democratic ticket, iB one whom all workingmen, irrespective oi party, can and should support, for the reason that as an employer oi labor he has always been a steadfast and per sistent advocate of the eight hour rule. The writer oi this has bad tho good for tune to be employed by Mr. Dillon, and haa no hesitation in giving his unquali fied endorsement of the fitness of the gentlemen to the great maea of working men voters in the county. A residence of 23 years, principally in Loa Angeles county, ahould give assurance th&t the writer knows whereof he speaks; and to those of our citizens who are not person ally acquainted with tbe gentleman, I would respectfully state that tbe above is but a very brief synopsis of tbe many and known good qualities of the worthy gentleman." HOW INDIANA STANDS. Ex-Congressman John E. Lamb, of Indiana, ia the gentleman who placed Governor Gray in nomination for vice- S resident at the Chicago convention, fr. Lamb is one ot the shrewdest and beet informed politicians in the Hooaier state, and hia opinions are especially val uable. He ia an intimate personal friend of H. W. Patton, of the Banning Herald, and aome weeks ago that gentleman ad dressed a letter to Mr. Lamb for Informa tion as to tbe probable result in Indiana. Tbe following ia the reply: "I have delayed answering your letter until I*could feel able to give you an opinion that is worth considering. I have coolly and calmly come to the conclusion that we will carry Indiana, and yesterday I put up $100 to $90 on tbat opinion. Governor Gray ia all right, and our party ia a unit for the ticket, atate and national, while our 'frienda the enemy' have soreheads and kickers innumerable to contend with in their own ranks. As to the general reeult, lam very hopeful." MRS. DIOQS AT TIIB PAVILION. It was far from being pleasant weather, laat night, but Hazard's pavilion waa crowded long before the hour of 8, when the meeting was called to order. Mrs. Digga had spoken for two hours at Santa Ana in the afternoon and was evidently in none too good voice, but the people turned out to hear her, all the same. Tbe piano and footlights of the stage were beautifully decorated with flowers and evergreens; and nothing had been spared to render tbe occasion a pleasant one. There was a glee club of about 12 voices in attendance and, after aome ad dressee and songs, Mrs. Digga was intro duced to the audience. She was neatly dressed in a drab pon gee costume and bad evidently made no great attempts at cell-adornment, but ahe waa scarcely on the floor before ahe bad the sympathy of the audience. Any pretensions ahe may ever have had to personal beauty have long since van ished, and to a voice ao aharp ac to be almost shrill she adds a provincial pro nunciation that was unmistakably that of the Missouri valley. But with all these natural defects against her, ahe held an audience of about 1500 people ac quiet and aa attentive as any orator that ever spoke in this city. The strona hold that ahe haa upon her audience growß out oi two thinga. She haa, to begin with, a clear, ringing voice that pervaded every nook and corner of the vast building ; and, while she indulges in no labored figures of rhetoric, ahe impresses tbe moat careless listener with the idea that ahe is thoroughly in ear nest. She haa a fairly good command of irony, and whenever ahe used it, tbe great audience seemed willing to honor her demands upon their riaibles. Men eat there who had no more idea of vot ing for Weaver and Field than they had of voting for Wilcox for king of the Sandwich islands, but tbey enjoyed ber telling allusions and applauded ber just aB heartily aa if Bbc were preaching a gospel on which depended their eternal salvation. In a word, ahe made a tell ing hit, and people enjoyed it. Mrs. Diggs can come to Lob Angeles when every other place is shut up. POLITICAL NOTES. The Cleveland Duster club will meet Friday evening at Tammany hall, but will immeaiately adjourn out oi respect to the funeral of Mrs. Benjamin Harrison. All members, however, are earnestly re quested to be present, as instructions of importance will be given. The Republican of the Fourth ward will bold a caucus at Seventeenth and Grand avenue this evening at 8 o'clock to select delegates to be voted for at the primaries on Saturday next. A joint tariff debate will take place at Turnverien hall on Wedneeay evening next between the Young Men's Cleve land club and the First Voter's Repub lican club. This event promises to be an unusual event in political circles and there will certainly be a large crowd present. ffi PRIC|% W DELICIOUS Flavoring Extracts NATURAL FRUIT FLAVORS.
