FOR CONGRESS, SIXTH DISTRICT — REEL B. TERRY, of Fresuo. A Local Republican Boomerang. It is not often that such disgraceful scenes have occurred in any city of the United States as those which were chron icled in the journals of Los Angeles yes terday in connection with the Republi can primaries. The true animus of the Los Angeles "bosses" was made appar ent. The great mass of the Republican party is composed of law-abiding and re- Bpectable citizens. The question now confronts every self-respecting Republi can as to whether he can any longer identify himself with an organization that shows itself absolutely opposed to law, order and the right of the citizen to to express his preferences at the polls ? The primary election is as sacred as any in whi :h the citizen can participate. In fact, it is the most important of them all, for it is the fountain head of Ameri can politics, and if that be tainted, what hope is there for the stream below? He who would strike a blow against the right of the citizen to name the men and indicate the measures which he will favor at the polls really converts the whole democratic-republican system into a mockery and a snare. It has been too much the fashion to con done outrages against the purity of the ballot box at these initial elections, but this is a fatal mistake. Crimes were committed at the Republican primaries Saturday that ought to place their perpe trators behind prison bars. For years past there has been a lamentable con tempt of the rights of the citizen on the part of the Republican bosses of Los An geles city and county. Their most offen sive manifestation, prior to the outrages of the other day, was the successful disfranchisement of Democratic voters by the Republican County Clerk, Mr. Charles H. Dunsmoor, two years ago. Having cheated large numbers of the Democratic voters of Los Angeles county out of their votes at that time it is only natural that the next assault by the Republican machine bosses should be made upon he rights of tbe Republi can citizen to vote. It is not too much to say that nothing that has occurred in this city for years Mill go so far towards disintegrating the Republican party lo cally as the events of Saturday. Self- ■ respecting men will decline to longer identify themselves with an organization which is run on such Thug-like princi ples. In face of such conceded outrages on popular suffrage by men who claim to represent a great national party how stale, flat and unprofitable are the un founded sneers against Democratic elec tion methods! Fishermen- from the Atlantic seaboard are having their attention drawn in a very positive form to the fishing grounds along the Pacific coast. Columbia River, Sacramento River and Alaska salmon have already acquired a world-wide rep utation, and annually this king of edible fishes is taken out to the tune of hun dreds of thousands of dollars. Pacific Coast codfish is another denizen of the deep which for ten years has been caught in millions, ft is a excellent fish, and the flesh is cured to per fection by those engaged in the reaping of this great harvest of the seas. The cod fisheries of the Coast are found mostly along the ex treme northern limits of the Pacific Ocean. Halibut is another fish which is caught in great abundance along our coast. But it one wer ato set out to cata logue the names of all our edible fishes he would have a big task to perform. The fishing grounds reach all the way from Cape St. Lucas at the mouti of the Gulf of Mexico to iehr ings Straight at the entrance to the North Polar Seas. All along these boundless expanses of the Pacific Ocean fish of many sorts swarm in myriads. Many of them are pecular to these waters, and they are an exceedingly delicious edible. Their flesh is firm, fine grained and sweet. Caught here] THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HEKALD: MONDAY MORNING, JULY 23, 1888. and shipped to the interior States in refrigerator cars they would meet with rapid sales. Canneries established at convenient points for the preparation of these fish, other than salmon, would prove most remunerative. Among the many excellent points at which this might be done with profit, none is better than Santa Catalina Island off our own Los Angeles Coast. Already '.he fish eries of the Facitio are attracting the at tention of Massachusetts fishermen. Some of these have visited the Coast for the purpose of looking over the ground. Some of them have actually put out their boats, which are doing well in their new departure. This is an industry which will grow. Those who confidently predicted a great disruption in the Democratic party on the final vote on the Mills bill have lived to see their vaticinations falsified. But three Democrats voted against the bill and but two Republicans for it. Dur ing the long and exhausiive discussion of the measure the most matured wisdom of tho country was availed of in modify ing it until it assumed a shape as perfect as such a law, when regard is had to the innumerable and antagonistic interests of the country, could well be expected to have. It may not be enacted into a statute, but its framers will have the consolation of knowing that it ought to have been, and that a conservative and enlightened statesmanship character izes it as a whole. The more skillful of the Republican jour nals, which do not care to lie out right by calling the measure a free trade afl'air, have developed a new line of tac tics. They say that, although the Mills bill may not be free trade in itself it is intended to lead up to free trade by creating a larger annual surplus than is accruing under the present tariff. There is a wise saw which is f ound in Matthew, and which runs, "Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." The absurdity of this argument is shown by a single example. Mills places wool on the free list. Last year $27,000,000 were collected on wools imported into the United States. It is somewhat difficult to see how the surplus will be increased by a measure which collects not a cent from wool, as against nearly thirty millions of dollars under the <>xisting tariff. Such examples could be readily , multiplied. The man who says the Mills bill will add to the surplus does . not believe a word of the twaddle. He is simply talking for buncombe, and he knows it, when he winds up his oracular remarks by the assumption that the in creased surplus will necessitate free trade to relieve the redundant flow of cash into the Treasury. He is talking . to the marines, and might as well save ■ his breath. Our citizens were treated last night to a very rarely beautiful display of the familiar phenomenon of a lunar eclipse. The obscuration was observed in this city under the mo3t favorable circum stances imaginable. The eclipse began early in the evening when all the people were astir. Then again the sky was clear and the atmosphere very transpar ent. There was a most picturesque pe culiarity about the effect of the shadow. Even in the middle of the eclipse the entire face of the moon with all the tracings usually to be found thereon was distinctly visible. It seemed as if pale luna were not passing through the region, of absolute shadow cast by the earth passing between her and the sun, but as if she were merely passing through the half shadow on the margin of the dark cone thrown across the sky by the opaque body of the earth. To un derstand this one has to imagine the globes of the moon, the earth and the sun lying so that a line will pass through the cen ters of all three bodies. The earth lies be tween the sun and the moon. Of course the light of the sun cannot pass through the body of the earth. A shadow is the result. But the sun being so much larger than the earth this shadow which is as large as the circumference of the earth close to it grows smaller as it re cedes from the body which makes it. The shadow assumes the form of a cone and terminates in a point. Moreover right along the central axis of the cone the shadow is most dense, and as the outside surface of it is approached it is less and less of a total darkness until perfect day is reached. Again along the whole length of the cone the darkness is most dense right close to the earth, and as the distance from it is increased the shadow lightens up by the rays of the sun which pass around the earth, and by the light reflected from the illimitable spaces of light all around. When the moon is near the earth it passes through the dense shadow, and then in a total eclipse her face is not seen, so perfect is the obscuration. Last night the Queen of the Night was far from the earth and passed through the shadow far out towards its point. Hence the obscuration was but partial and the moon's face was dis tinctly seen throughout the entire eclipse. It is a beautiful phenomenon not often observable from this planet. The Times congratulates the Herald upon a prospective improvement in our editorial columns contingent upon some outside information which it expects us to receive. We are enabled to go one better, and congratulate our contem porary upon a marked present improve ment in its own editorial columns. It is devoting them at present to an exposi tion of the fraud, lawlessness, bossism and other unlovely and disgraceful de velopements in its own beloved " God and Morality" and "All the Decency" party of Los Angeles county. Shovel away lustily, good neighbor! The Au gean stables which made Hercules sweat were nothing to the filthy mess you are now stirring up. Rumor has it that it wan not an eclipse on the moon last night, that ft was blood on the face of the nocturnal orb, as tbe result of the great disgrace put on the "All Decency" party by the Thugs in the Saturday primaries. The message wh'ch President Cleveland sent to the Congress of t c United States in the early days of list N ive nbor has been twisted by a lot of insincere and mendacious Republican editors and ora tors into a free trade outgiving. On the Contrary, in that document the President put him=elf plainly and unequivocally on record as being in favor of protection to American industry. What the Demo cratic party is -contending for. and what its illustrious leader recommended, was a moderate reduction in duties which, while not crippling the manufacturer, should stop the accumulation in the na tional treasury which ia making money tight all over tli9 United States and which last Summer and Fall threatened to precipitate a financial panic on the people of the United States. Just by the amount of money which is kep; locked up in the Treasury is the circuls tion diminished upon whose easy v >lume depends tho prosperity of our people. No earthly good is done to any class of our population by making money tight and dear except to the select but voracious guild who possess fixed incomes and who are known as gold bugs. The excellent suggestions of the President have been crystallized in the Mills bill—a measure which would have been gladly accepted by tho manufacturers themselves, Re publicans as well as Democrats, five years ago. It places a few articles on the free list that ought to go there; and certainly the people of Southern Califor nia can well afford to see wool on that list when coal, lumber aud the other necessaries of life and developmeir figure there also. An excerpt in the Herald to-day from the Republican paper of l'.rsadena, indicate? that the fineltalian band of the Los Angeles bosses was exen ised in the primaries of that highly Republican and highly model burg. "All De cency" has come to a prett} pass hereabouts. Tlie fedate and sober Long-haira have no show in the political contest with the robustious aud intoxicated Short-hairs who aro runniuji politics in such utter disregard of God, morality and decency all in one breath Even pale Luna is as ashamed for the "God and Morality," "All Decency" and "All Intelligence" party. Her nocturnal majesty is also ashamed of the City ol the Angels, and therefore veiled her face in obscurity last night while she passed over this disgraced pueblo. How are the mighty fallen! How are the pure besmirched! The Short-hairs ask what are you going to do about it ? j Political Points.

The direct interest of the consumers .md manufacturers of woollen goods in the proposition to place wool on the free list has been pretty fully set forth; our im mense indirect interest in the effect of such a measure unou our general foreign trade deserves more attention than has been given it. We invite attention to a part of that effect,such as may reasonably oe anticipated in our South American commerce. One reason for testing the matter there is, that Chili and the Argentine Itepublio are among the leading wool exporting countries. A stronger reason is, that we have the highest and most sacred Republican and protectionist authority for maintaining, first, that au extension of our South American trade is highly desirable; and, secondly, that our tariff on wool is the greatest obstacle to that extension. The Commission ap pointed by President Arthur under the act of July 7, 1884, had for its duty "to ascertain and report upon the best modes of securing more intimate commercial relations between the United States and the several countries of Cen tral and South America." In his in structions to the Commissioners, Secie tary Frelinghuysen directed them to en deavor to negotiate reciprocity tre -.ties as " the means of inaugurating this ad vanced step in our national policy." But not a single treaty was forthcoming. In every ca6e the Commissioners ran against he dead wall of our high tariff. In their final report they admit their entire failure, and give the reason for it in the words: "In any con vention we, on our part must admit wool or eugar free of duty or at greatly reduced rates. They are peculiar products of those countries, * * and aro precisely tlie two we felt we had no authority to even consider in our ne gotiations." .More specifically, in the report on the Argentine lie pub lc, it was said that until we weie ready to admit wool free there was no use iv discussing a reciprocity treaty with that country. The Commission certainly reported ample testimony to bear out their con clusion. Take the following bit from the statement of an American resident in Chili, Dr. J. 11. Trumbull, for twenty eight years a practicing physician in that country: Q. What has been your observation as regaids American trade here? A. Since I arrived it has grown beautifully less. Q. What is the cause? A. I think it 'B the want of a return cargo from here. There is a desire on the part of mer chants and everybody to bring American goods here, but there is no way of paying for them. You have clapped, some years ago, a duty on copper and wool, and the consequence was that vessels that came here —Heraenway'e, Fitzgerald's etc., from Bo3ton and Baltimore—had to give up this trade. Everybody wants to im port American goods. All the people say, "Why can't we go back fifteen or sixteen years ago, when we could have those AJierican goods?" Q. You have only wool that we can take? A. That is all. You undersell us in copper; and the hides are all used here. tj. Can our Government do anything except to modify the tariff? A. No, sir. Q. How would it be to establish a direct line of steamers? A, Hemen way tried it. It was a failure. And Mr. Edward A. Hopkins, for forty years a resident of the Plate Val ley, in the midst of his rather hysterical calls for subsidies and the restoration of the duty on coffee, makes it clear that the real trouble with our trade with the Argentine Republic is our tariff on wool. In his recent address before the Cham ber of Commerce in this city, he asked only for a revision of the duty, asserting that the result would ba "a jubilee of enthusiasm manifested towards us throughout the whole Argentine land," tud that "our commerce would at oncer increase almost fabulously." lie had just before remarked: "If Congress declare for free wool, which is not to be supposed, we have nothing more to say 0:1 ihia account." We should think not, for if a simple revision would make a "jubilee," no language would be left to tl.'scribe the effect of making wool en tirely free. The Argentine Republic exported in 1835, 283,047,000 pounds of wool, of which we took 10,222,817 pounds, or about one tweuty-eighth. Very stiikingly, though naturally, our entire trade with the Ar gentine Republic last year wasjust about one-twenty-eighth of the total foreign commerce of that country, or a little less than 4 per cen'. In 1860 we had a much larger proportion, about 8 per cent. If we had only held our own all these years we should have had a trade with the Plate River oi more than $17,000,000 in 1887. If we had shared in the foreign trade of Chili in 1880 in the same propor tion as in 1860, the amount would have been $10,000,000 instead of the $4,930,000 it actually was. On the simple basis, thus, of twenty-eight years ago our glutted markets would have been eased last year of at least $8,000,000 worth of products, if we had only been in position to take the pay Chili and the Argentines offer us. And it ought not to be a ques tion of our trade merely holding its own. Every one knows that if we had not de liberately shut ourselves out of the South American markets our old propor tion would have become greatly enlarged. England's trade with the Argentine Re public has increased as much as 46 per cent, in a single year. So with ours if, with our commanding lead of thirty years ago, we had kept on as an active com petitor in the market, willing to buy as well as sell. So that, in estimating the loss we have brought upon ourselves in the restriction upon our foreign trade by our wool tariff, we are justified, in the case of the two countries mentioned, in speaking of the possibility of added ex ports not to the amount of $8,000,000 merely, but of vastly more. As we said at the beginning, this line of argument is originally and legitimate ly protectionist and Republican. And it should be remembered that the effort to push our trade iv South America—an ef fort that means, if it means anything, lowered or abolished duties—still has the highest Republican sanction. When the McCreary bill for calling a Pan-Ameri can Congre-s was before the House, our readers will recall that a man so near the fount of purs and undefiled protec tion as Mr. William Walter Phelps ap pealed to the great name of Blame in sup port of the measure. But thatalso looks to reciprocity treaties, and a reciprocity treaty means, as we have seen,free wool. At least, we hope that none of our dele gates to the Congress will mention a reciprocity treaty unless they also men tion free wool, for it would not be pleas ant to have a Chilian say in Washington what one said in Valparaiso: "The United States Government has by means of its heavy tariff pretended to realize the impossible, or the absurdity of selling to all the world without buying anything from anybody."—[N.

I Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald. 1 Sr. Petershurg, July 22.—There were 20,000 men and 168 guns in the Krasnoe- Selo review. The review gave evidence that the Russian troops have much im proved in the last few years. Emperor William greatly admired the troops, especially the Cossack artillery. This evening the Czar gave a gala dinner in Peterhoff Palace. The park fountains were illuminated. Tea was served in the pavilion on shore. Count Her bert Bismarck sends long tele grams daily to his father. When leading his Russian Viborg regiment, post the Czar, at the Krasnoe-Selo review, the Emperor calling the Czar's attention to the fact that that regiment bore a ribbon attesting ita presence at the capture of Berlin, shook handa with him and smil ing said, "No matter, that was in the last century and it is already forgotten." the DIKNBR. At a dinner in Peterhoff Palace this evening the Czarina had Emperor Wil liam on the right and the C/.ar on the left. The Minister of the Court satoppo site, with the German guestH on the right and tho Russian on the left. All the ministers were present as well as Count Schovaloff, General Yon Schweinitz, foreign suites, admirals of the German squadron, and Captain Mc- Kellar, of the United States ship Enter prise. A silver dinner service was used. In the floral decorations were 5,000 rosea and a quantity of blue lobelia, Emperor William's favorite flower. The proposed luncheon on board the Hohen zollern was abandoned, the C/.ar instead will inspect the vessel on Tuesday. The Russian officials are much im pressed with Emperor William's martial spirit and bearing and bis amiability and thoughtfulness. As an illustration "of his urbanity, Emperor William, meeting a guardsman whom he had known iv Ber lin, invited him to come to Germany to shoot in the Autumn. RELIGIOUS OBSERVANCES. Tlie Imperial visitors attended Lutheran services this morning. Afterward they accompanied the Czar and Czarina to the castle chapel where service was held according to the Russian Liturgy. Splendid chorals were rendered by the Court singers. The departure of the German imperial party has been post poned until Tuesday morning. The Official Messenger says: In proposing the health of Emperor William at Krasno-Seelo, the Czar included in the toast, "His glorious army." Emperor William visited the Queen of the Helens on Saturday. ITALIANS AltOl SIID. Indignation Expressed at Their Proposed Ostracism. Philadelphia, July 22. —About 2,000 Italians assembled in Kelly Hall this afternoon to protest against tho state ments that have been made that they are a pauper class, and that a recently ap pointed Congressional committee pro poses to investigate the matter. Aft?r listening to addresses by Angelo Astarit ica, Nicholas Conforti, of New York, and others, the iollowing resolutions were presented with an introduction in Italian, and went through with a rush : First —This meeting condemns the action of the Italian Societies of Immi aration in the humiliating of Italians under the slave or padrone system. Second—That we, obeying the laws of this glorious Republic, pray and hope no law of ostracism will be passed against our immigration, contrary to the liberty and civilization of this country. The circular which called the meeting together has a flavor of revolutionary language about it, and reads: Italians, the moment to show ourselves united for the common honor of Italians has ar rived. The American press has undertaken a war against us to influence the American Govern ment to take measures against us, a free people. Energetic action must be taken without loss of time. Italians of all colonies, of whatever political opinion, the supreme moment has ar rived. United with the name of Italy in our mouths, let us prepare for war. Those who will not be in our line will be against us and Italy. The time is short; let all societies unite and do their duty. An Italian cavalry company and the military companies of the Bariaglieri and the Genio, composed of street sweepers, were to have marched to tho hall in full uniform, but were not allowed to do so, the police refusing to permit an armed assemblage. I ltm 111 IMXII INDIANS. Tlie Skceua Hlver Rebellion Gain ing; In Proportion*. Caicago, July 22.—A Daily News Win nipeg special says: The Skeena River re volt continues to cause great excitement. The local militia is preparing to start for the scene of the outbreak on short notice. A messenger arrived from Haz elton to-night. He says when he escaped, the Indians were still besieging the Hudson Bay Company's fort where all the white population is gathered. Gamoon, he says, could not hold out much longer. He fears the troops now on the way there will not arrive in time. General Middleton, who commanded the troops during the last rebellion, has again been called upon to direct the troops in this revolt. He has wired the miliiia authorities in British Columbia as follows: "I can put 5000 men on the cars in twenty-four hours en route for the scene." It, is said the Indian tribes in that region are pretty well divided against one another, and that probably some of them would side with the whiles against their enemies. A short dittance above the mouth of the Skeena River lies Dun can Island, where dwelt a ferocious and blood-thirsty band of Indians known as the Metalaktahita tribe, which gave so much trouble to the Government a few years ago, but afterwards fled to some point in Alaska. This tribe has signified its willingness to join the rebellion and is reported on its wai to Hazleton. A rebellion much more serious than that of two years ago is ex pected by those who know the charactei of the redskins now on the war-path Orders were received from Ottawa to night where the most alarming intelli ! gence has been received. The Govern ment batallion, which was first at tbe front of the rebellion, is notified to hold itself in readiness. CONGRESS. Forcratt of the Week's Work In Both Houses. Washington, July 22.—The Senate will probably take up the conference re port on the River and Harbor bill Mon day, and follow it with the Sundry, Civil and Naval Appropriation bills in turn. The subsequent course of legislation for tho week cannot l)e forecast with safety, because so many important measures have been taken up and laid aside tem porarily with certain qualified rights of way. The District of Columbia Committee expect to secure to-morrow in the House the consideration of District business. The General Deficiency Appropriation bill will be called up for action early in the week. A lively debate is expected upon the sections which make provision for the pay mint of French spoliation claims. The Appropriation Committee has nearly completed the Fortification Appropriation bill, and intends to report in time for action by the House after the passage of the General Deficiency bill. FARBAGUT'S FLAG SHIP. Numerous inquiries have been made at the Navy department as to what is being done towards repairing the United btates steamer Hartford, Farragut's flag ship, now in decat at the nay3 r yard at Mare Island, California. On January 24th Representative Whitthorne, from the Committee on Naval Affairs, reported a bill authorizing repairs. The House im mediately passed the bill without oppo sition, and it was sent to the Senate, where it has remained ever since, without action beyond its reference to a sub-committee of the Naval Affairs Committee. Senator Stanford is chair man of the 3ub-committee, and he is ab sont in Europe. The friends of the bill are therefore afraid that the bill may not get before the Senate in time for action at this session. The Secretary of the Navy has approved the plans for the repair of the Hartford, and will order the work to commence as soon as the funds are available. Delay in making this provision will increase the cost,, as the vessel now lies in a somewhat ex posed condition in anticipation of the passage of the bill. RAILROADERS n POLITICS. I in ) Claim to Hold the Balance of Power In Illinois. Chicago, July 22.—About five hundred men, representing engineers, firemen, brakemen and switchmen of the rail roads running out of Chicago, held a meeting to-day for the purpose of taking political action on the question of inter est to the order. It was claimed that the meetingrepresented about thirty thou sand votes in the State, and would therefore hold the balance of power so far as legislation was concerned. A club was formed, which will have for its battle cry, "The repeal of the Merritt Conspiracy law and a more strict enforce ment of the private detective law against the Pinkertons." A committee of five was appointed to take charge of the cam paign and to act as a central body, from which all directions are to emanate. PEDAGOGICAL. The Teachers Attend Church at San Francisco. San Francisco, July 22.—The visiting members of the National Educational Convention observed the Sabbath to-day by attending the different places of wor ship conforming with their individual creeds. Their faces could be seen in every congregation where the devout were assembled. Most of the California teachers have returned to their homos. Their early departure is due to the fact that nearly all of them have summer schools. Oregon State Teachers' Institute at a recent meeting adopted resolutions, in viting all tlie California teachers to at tend the next institute, which is to be held in July next. Although the invita tion is rather far ahead ot time, it has been received here with pleasure, and the probabilities are that California will be well represented at the meeting. AT INDIANAPOLIS. De Youua; Loaded lor the Cam patgii on the Coast. Indianapolis, July 22.—General Har rison and family passed a quiet Sabbath. General and Mrs. Harrison attended divine services this morning. During the afternoon and evening a number of the General's iriends called. The only out-of-town visitors who saw the General to-day were R. C. Kurens of St. Louis and M. H. De Young, of San Francis.o, chairman of the Pacific Coast sub-com mittee of the National Republican Ex ecutive Committee. Mr. De Young passed a couple of hours in consultation with General Harrison, presumably upon political matters, and left to-night for Chicago, en route for San Francisco, to actively inaugurate the campaign on the Coast.
