Calico Solid for tbe Democratic
Party, From Cleveland and Hen
dricks to Del Valle,
Editor Herald; It seems that the
Los Augeles Time*, aud also the pro
phetic editor of the San Bcruardiuo
Black Republican Index, are consider
ably exercised over "Prospectors' re
ports concerning the political outlook of
this portion of the couuty, so I will
give them another dose thut will not
serve as an anodyne to quiet their nervous
system, as well as -to give the readers
of the Herald, the workingmeu aud
miners of the country some of the
reasons why the miners of Calico and
vicinity will not support Mr. Markham
for Congress. In tho first place a large
majority of the minors aro staunch and
true Democrats, and are dissatisfied with
the nominations of the party, State, Na
tional and County, and are uot disposed
to be misled hy Republican slander or
corruption taffy, nor washed by mo
nopoly acap. Miners as a general thing
act aud voto as tbey think best fur the
welfare of the country aud themselves.
In the second place they know it to be
au indisputable fact that the King mine,
under the rule of right niiuded, but
poor Democrats was paying wages,
whilst opening and developing the said
mine, at the rate of $4.00 per day. Ami
they have also not forgotten that wheu
a rich Milwaukee Republican corpora
tion witb Colonel H. If. Markham as
the Grand Sachem succeeded to the con
trol of thu mine, that Markham himself
was the man first to reduce miners
wages. That ho wanted to reduce them
to $3.00 per day is a fact that can be
proven; but failing in this miserable and
penurious action. When informed by
Mr. Samuel James, the foreman of the
mine, that no men could be employed at
those rates, Mr. Markham, acting for his
Company agreed in the liberality of bis
i love for the laboring man, to give good
: miners uudtr ground $3.50 per day, and
' that in a camp where water costs from
! three to five cents per gallon, board $8
per week and wood $10 to $12 per cord,
thereby makiug it a hardship upon many
of tbe miners who have families to sup
port. And another thing tbat has uot
been forgolten is that when bids were
let for work at Oro Grande on the
mines owued by the same parties, name
ly, Markham 9c Co., that white men
offered to take tbe contracts at the*low
est possible living rates, but were under
bid by Chinamen; and, consequently, a
large amount of work was let to the Ce
lestial beauties. These sre a few of the
reasons why ihe miners will not support
the genial and affable Republican candi
date for Congress.
The Democrats of Calico have a well
organized club of over one hundred
members, aud work in harmony with a
smaller club in Daggett. The Republi
cans have a small club iv Calico, also in
Daggett, and everythiug points to a
good majority for tbe grand old party.
We have no Prohibitionists and no But
lerites. The mining outlook was never
better, everything indicating that Calico
has not yet seen its best days.

on the lirst floor to make tbe boarders

and this requires no painting, renders it
possible to occupy the rooms ua fnst as
they are out of tlie carpenters' bauds.

Reason vs. the "Irish World."
It wm my good luck on Saturday
evening, when the Democratic proces
sion formed on Temple street, to find a
place and torch in tho midst of about a
dozen Irishmen, erery one over 40 years
of age. The Cleveland Guards had
formed on our right. "Hello, Jim," said
one of the Cleveland Ouarda to my pill
doner; "what are you doing here? I
thoaght you did belong to the working
men's party." "So I do," replied my
friend, whom I now commenced lo
scrutinise with interest; '•! belong to
the same workiogmen'e party 1 belonged
to twenty-eight years ago." "Yes," he
continued, addreaiing me; "twenty
eight yean ago I oast my tint rote fur
Hucbanan, and since then I have voted
the Democratic ticket and shall do so
until I die." These remarks drew some
attention. "I voted the tint time for
Pierce," shonted another veteran Irish
man. "I for Douglass,' - aaid another.
"Well," I aaid myself, "I voted the tint
time for McClellan, when serving as a
volunteer on the fields of Virginia, bnt
what gives me a glad surprise is that I
see myself aurronnded by so many true
hearted Irish Democrats, when the He
publican papers want to make us believe
that the Irish will vote solid for Blame."
"U hsng tbe lying Republican papers,
and the /risk It'orM, too," responded
tiveor six, and theu my friend continued:
"li'you would believe these lying Re
publican papers you would believe also
that au Irishman would Bell his vote to
a party, which he hates as his natural
euemy. Like me, I know and can
assert that no bouest Irishman iv this
large country will desert the parly
which ofTered bim tbe first protection
upou arriving iv this couutry, aud which
always bas proved itself the friend of
the laboring class. Hang the Republi
cans, who have alwaya kicked agaiust
us, and you Dutahmen, too (the wr ter
of this is a Dutchman); aud who never
had any use for either of us, uuless they
wan ted our votes." "Hurrah for Jim,"
came from all around, who heard the
little "unprepared for" speech. I was
unable to thank my friend, as the pro
cession was moving, but a hearty shake
of tbe hand expressed my feelings better
than any words coald have done.

Editor Herald:—On tho "Seven
hills of Los Augeles" ii the "Ellis Villa
College," its bound of vision reaching
sixty miles—ocean, mountain, city and
placid villa. There it stands the brain
gem, executed and dedicated to God and
humanity. Go and see it, for to do so
is to realize tbat it ts a tempto of educa
tion in all of its appointments, opened
for pupils on yesterday, presided over by
tbe Rev. D. W. Banna, Principal. Pnr
euts and guardians are assured of relia
ble culture, and by coinmiting their
children to the care of the Professor and
his daughter, who, with a carefully se
lected corps of teachers, is now fully
equipped, aud wheu, after graduation,
tbey shall feel their relation to knowl
edge, the universe und its beneficent
"house," the world will be better fur
nished by another quota of aggressive
thought. R.
Colonel Markham and the Miners.
Editor Herald: In your issue of
tbe 18th you sa> that rumors reach you
from all sides, "that the Republican
candidate for Congress iv the Sixth Dis
trict has steadily endeavored during bis
career, as a mining man, to reduce the
wages of the hard working miners to tbe
lowest possible pitch, and that upon
their resisting the reduction he has dis
charged Caucasian miners wholesale and
replaced them by Chinamen." These
are grave allegations, but tbey are not
true. During the summer of 1881, tbe
Oro Grande Mining Company (in which
Colonel Markham was a stockholder, but
not manager) did during the Colonel's
abseuce in the East, employ a crew of
Chinamen. A part of this crew were
discharged within ten days after their
arrival, the balance remained about six
weeks or two months, or until Colonel
Markham returned from the East—
when the control of the mines passed
into his bauds—when they were dis
charged. And from that day uutil he
severed bis connection with the mines
there was not a Chinaman employed in
auy capacity whatever; and, the allega
tion that he reduced the wages of miners
is not true. When Colonel Markham
took hold of the King mine at Calico
the mining interest iv this vow famous
oamp waa iv a languishing condition.
Neighboring camps were paying
$3 00 per day. The majority
of mine owners, sdvocated making
that fignre the price for Calico, but the
Colonel said "No; we will call it $3.50
per day," aud that has been the price
ever since. I would say iv this connec
tion for the benefit of those who do not
know, that I was the Superintendent of
the Oro Grande Mining Company from
June Ist. 1881, to July 15th, 1884, or
from almost the first iuception of the
Company aud until after the Colonel
had sold out, aud consequently was in a
position to kuow all the tacts.
