All the Democratic clubs of the city will turn out in force to do the distinguished Gothamite honor. It will be a notable event. People's minds are not to be misled from the main issue by a fraudulent let ter written by a trickster and knave and answered by an inter-meddler and fool. The issue is a square one and the voters understand it. It is Harrison, High Taxes and Free Whisky on one side, or Cleveland, low taxes and cheap clothing on the other. The Kalamazoo Telegraph makes a showing that is in the nature of a revelation. In eight counties that went for Blame in 1884 aggregate Democratic gains are shown of 1,283 out of a total vote 14,177. The deduction is made, from these figures, that if eight counties show a Democratic gain of more than 11 per cent., and this rule holds good throughout the State Blame's plurality of 3,308 in 1884 will be wiped out and a plurality of 40,000 will be given this year for Cleveland and Thurman. The tariff reformers regard Michigan as good fighting ground, and they are con testing every foot of its soil with the champions of high taxation. Detective Metzler is forced into a singular position by a decision of the Mayor. Judge King made a verbal statement to the Police Commissioners, a week ago, that one Buster had told him that a man had given Metzler $28 not to prosecute a charge against him; but that Metzler had returned all but $3 of tbe money. Buster has left the city, and when the Police Commissioners called Metzler yesterday he denied that there was any truth in the charge. The Mayor, however, insisted that the de tective should prove his innocence, and Metzler is in a quandary to know how he is going to prove that be is not guilty of an offense of which he is not formally charged, and in relation to which there has been no proof offered. The view taken by Secretary Bayard and other Cabinet Ministers to the effect that Murchison's offense is a crime and falls under the purview of the statutes therein made and provided, will be very likely to keep that recreant more closely concealed than ever. It looks as if the wily newspaper reporter and the lynx eyed detective were to be cheated ef their prey. Still there are many who could cause this shadow of name to materialize if they would. Most of them are men of sncb high honor that the reward of $2,000 offered by the Democratic National Com mittee will have no jot of influence on their minds. Not threats, punishment, nor bribes could reach them. But the secret may already have leaked iuto the ears of some fellow of tbe baser sort who will give it np. We shall see. THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING. OCTOBER 31. 1888, Gross Abuse at a Public Trust. Mr. S. A. Waldron, Democratic candi date for tbe Assembly, in his speech at South Pasadena on Saturday night, as reported in the Herald, said that County Clerk Dunsmoor had refused, in 1886, to register 194 Democratic voters because of an informality on the part of the deputies who had enrolled their names. Mr. Waldron said that this was no elec tion clap-trap charge, for Mr. Dunsmoor himself had admitted under oath, in the contest of Lynch vs. Vandever, that he had refused to register these names because they were Democrats; but that if they had been Republicans he would have accepted them. Mr. Wal loon's memory was at fault as to the exact answer of Mr. Dunsmoor, but his fact is substantially correct. The history of the transaction is briefly this: The County Clerk had publicly notified the electors of Los Angeles county that regis trations would close on the 2d of October, 1886. Later in the month of October, about the 10th or the 12th, he determined to issue a supplemental register to be kept open till the 27th, and said that he had sent out notice of this extension of time to his registry clerks, among whom there were, as he guessed, some ten or twelve Democrats; but all, ex cepting those in Santa Ana and in Downey, in precincts where but a very small number of votes were polled. It is matter of history, however, that it was not generally known that names could be registered after the 2d of October. About the 21st, a circular from the Republican Central Committee fell into the hands of the Democratic Committee, advising Republican depu ties to keep on enrolling voters, as names would be received for registra tion by the County Clerk up to the 27th of October. This aroused the Democrats, and they got Mr. Bilderrain, who was the County Asses sor, and who had the legal right to do so, to appoint a number of Democratic deputies to enroll names of voters (well understood, Democratic voters,; for regis tration. The only public notice given by Mr. Dunsmoor that names could be registered till the 27th, was published in an obscure corner of the Evening Ex press on the 25th and 26th of October. The Democratic deputy's assessors went out and enrolled 194 names, and when they were returned to the County Clerk's office, Mr. Duns moor made difficulties about registering them because of the informality of the deputies' appointments not having been filed in his office. Hon. S. M. White, Hon. R. F. Del Valle and another Demo crat interviewed Mr. Dunsmoor, and he promised them to place the names on the Great Register. On the 28th of October, however, Mr. Dunsmoor made up his mind not to put those names on the Great Register, without having notified Mr. White that he had reconsidered his former determination. Now here comes tbe animus of the City Clerk. It must be remembered he was running for a re-election, and that he changed his mind about registering the 194 names because, as he deposed, after he had promised Mr. White to accept them he saw the District Attorney, who was also a candidate /or re-election, and he told him that the names had not been legally enrolled, yet he never notified the Dep uty Assessor or Mr. White of the fact. The testimony, at page 23, of Lynch vs. Vandever, says: Question —If these deputy assessors had been Republicans, and had not filed their appointment in your office, would you not have notified them of the fact, and that any action had by them prior to the filing of their appointments was illegal ? Mr. Campbell (counsel for Vandever) objected. Question by Mr. Roberts (counsel for Lynch)— Would you not, sir? Answer —Very probably I would have notified them. Now here Mr. Dunsmoor admits, under oath, that he would "very probably" have taken different action in his ca pacity as County Clerk with reference to those names if they had been sent in by Republican instead of Democratic dep uties. In other words, he would have notified Republican deputies that they must file their appointments in his oflice before he would register the names they bad handed in, whilst he in fact refused or purposely neglected to notify the Democratic deputies. It is manifest that this action of the County Clerk disfranchised for that elec tion the 194 Democratic voters enrolled by the deputy assessors, and that if they had been Republican voters tbey would have got on the supplemental register and their votes have been polled. "A public office is a public trust," but Mr. Dunsmoor evidently did not so consider it in his case at that time. Mr. Waldron was very right when he said that the loss of these votes to the Democratic party has resulted in great disaster to the taxpayers of this county. They would have defeated the Republi can candidate for County Assessor, for Mr. Mason was only elected by a plurality of about eighty, and that official has succeeded in so over assessing the property of Los Angeles county as to make our people pay into the State Treasury three dollars to one paid by the taxpayers in the Northern counties on property of equal value. This we have been doing now for two years; but the evil effects of this over-assessment will follow us for an indefinite number of years, as it seems to be an absolute impossibility to obtain justice in this respect from a State Board of Equalization. We submit to the taxpayers of Los Angeles whether a County Clerk whose arbitrary and indefensible act has brought this great evil upon them, and who has abused his trust for an advan tage to his party, as the record shows, ought to be continued in office. Your high Protectionist always points with pride to tbe lessened cost of steel rails under his system. He forgets to tell us about the great improvements made in the Bessemer steel process by American genius, which is tbe real cause of this lessened price for the rails. He forgets to tell you that tbe cost of rails in America is always at least $15 more than in England, where rails are not protected. He also forgets that when the duty on rails was cut down from $28 to $17 per ton, he told us that all our mills would stop and all our furnaces go out. The cut was made, but Mr. Carnegie's indus try seems to flourish under the lower duty. He is the only man hurt by it, and he is the fellow now who is telling us that if the duty is reduced from $17. or one hundred per cent, ad valorem, to $11 wages will be the lower for it. Mr. Carnegie is paying just as high wages under the $17 tariff as he paid under the $28 tariff; and he would not cut them under the $11 tariff. They are as low now as they well can be. What ever the tariff may be Mr. Carnegie will pay as little wages as possible. Let us see. Mr. Mike De Young as sured the leading Republican delegates at the National Convention that if Gen eral Harrison was nominated for Presi dent he could not get the vote of Califor nia on account of bis pro-Chinese record in the United States Senate upon the Restriction Acts. Harrison having been nominated in spite of his pro-Chinese record, our local Republicans are putting forth herculean efforts to carry the State. They are reinforced in their efforts by money and orators from the East, aud such men as Tom Reed, who voted in the House as Harrison voted in the Senate, are sent here to make votes for Harri son. The Democrats of California are boldly making the Chi nese question an issue. Now suppose that this State, under the cir cumstances, should be carried for Harri son, what will the Eastern Republicans, who are in the main in favor of Chinese immigratio.i, argue from such a result? Will they not say that Californ-' • is opposed to the radical principle of exclusion, and favorable to their views upon this sub ject? Most assuredly. And would not the fact that our State had endorsed Harrison after a campaign in which this question had been made a positive issue by the Democrats, justify the Republicans in drawing such a conclu sion ? That being the case, what would be the next step of the pro-Chinese Re publicans? Why to repeal the Exclu sion Act on the ground that Californians did not want such a measure, or they would have carried the State for Cleve land, who gave them that law, as against Harrison, whose official acts pro claimed him as one of the most open and determined champions of Chinese immi gration in the country. Therefore Cali fornians may rest assured that if they hand the State over to Harrison they will let down the bars which the Dem ocracy have set up against the ingress of Chinese. When preparations were being made in New York for Brother Blame's great speech on protection—for labor of course—at the Polo Grounds, the very platform from which he spoke was built by "scab" carpenters. The Uuion men remonstrated, but the Protectionists in charge gave them to understand that' it was their function to hire the cheapest labor to be had to erect the platform. The other day all the girls at work for the Union League in New York getting out high tariff literature under the direction of the Protectionists, struck because the protectors of wages would not pay them fair wages. The girls said the League wanted work done for sixty cents a day which was worth in the open labor market $1.:>0 to $1.50. Mr. Morton talks sometimes about his interest in high taxes, and alleges that biß interest in that scheme is because it makes higher wages, but Mr. Mor ton is a London banker as well as a New York banker. He is much in England, and at hie residence at Peekskill-on-the-Hudson he has a gang of imported laborers, brought over of course to make better wages for the labor already in New York. Mr. Carnegie is one of the men most in terested with Jay Gould and the Van derbilts to keep up war tax rates for the benefit of labor. Mr. Vanderbilt im ports his cooks and Mr. Car negie brings over his coachmen and gardeners. Theße flunkeys all wear uni forms and cockades as badges of their servitude. These are all made in Eng land and imported here. All these schemes are purely in the interest of high wages and to benefit the working men of America. When Mr. Carnegie and Brother Blame go coaching in Europe, they are never known to discus any other topic other than the best means of increasing the wages of Mr. Carnegie's employees at Pittsburg. Before the Republican orators found they were beaten on the tariff discus sion, and took refuge from defeat in the West letter fraud, one of their favorite points of attack on the Democracy was that the Government bought army blankets from English makers because they could be had thirty per cent, cheaper than a similar grade of goods made in America. These orators forgot to state that when Robert T. Lincoln was Secretary of War the same thing was done as was done by Secretary Endicott. But they forgot a more vital consideration than that too. They overlooked when using that argu ment that English makers had more than that much advantage over those of America in the free wool out of which their blankets were made. And that is just the way the Republican policy makes industries hum, makes more labor for workingmen and higher pay for labor. Unfortunately these advantages are ap plied at the wrong point. It is English industries this policy makes hum. It is for English workingmen this policy creates work. It is Eng lish labor which is better paid. Make no mistake, if England takes any interest in our affairs it will be to put in power a party which for twenty-four years made the markets of the world securely the property of English manu facturers, and which gives English mill owners the ability to underbid ours to the tune of thirty per cent. WEST MUST GO. The British Minister Given His Walking Papers. THE NATION'S DIGNITY UPHELD. The President's Course Backed By Public Opinion—Press Comments. lAbmiCiated Press Dispatches to tbe Herald. I Washington, October 30. —By direc tion of the President the Secretary of State to-day informed Sir Sackville West that for causes heretofore made known to Her Majesty's Government, his con tinuance in his present official position in the United States is no longer accept able to this Government, and would con sequently be detrimental to the relations between the two countries. The grounds of this action on the part of the United States are stated in a re port by the Secretary of State to the President, dated October 29th, which is as follows: mr. bayard's report. To the President: The undersigned has the honor to submit for your consideration the follow ing statement with a view to receive our direction thereon. On the 4ih of Sep tember last, a letter purporting to be written by one Charles F, Murchison, dated Pomona, California, was sent from that place to the British Minister at this capital, in which the writer solicited an expression of bis views regarding certain unsettled diplomatic questions between the United States and Great Britain, stating at the same time that such ex pression was sought by him for the purpose of determining his vote at tbe approaching Presidential election. He stated that he was a naturalized citizen of the United States, of English birth, but still consid ered England the mother country, and this fact led him to seek advice from the British representative to this country. He further stated that the information he sought was not for himself alone, but to enable him to give certain assurances to many other persons in the same situa tion as himself, for the purpose of influ encing and determining their political action as citizens of the United States of English birth, but who still regard their original obligations of allegiance as para mount. Tbe letter also contained gross reflec tions upon the conduct of this Govern ment in respect to the question now in controversy and unsettled between the United States and Great Britain, and both directly and indirectly imputed the insincerity of such conduct. To this letter the English Minister at once replied from Beverley, Mass., under date of the 14th of September. In his re ply, he stated that any political party which openly favored the mother coun try at the present moment would lose popularity and that the party in power is fully aware of that fact, and, "in respect to the questions with Canada, which have unfortunately been reopened since the rejection of the Fisheries treaty by the Republican majority in the Senate and by the President's message to which you allude; all allowances must there fore be made for the political situation as regards the Presidential election." The Minister thus gave his assent and sanc tion to the aspersions and imputations above referred to. Thus under his correspondent's assur ance of secrecy, in which the Minister concurred by marking his answer "Pri vate," he undertook to advise a citizen of the United States how to exercise the franchise of suffrage in the election close at hand for tbe Presidency and Vice Presidency of the United States, and through him, as the letter suggested, to influence the votes of many others. Upon this correspondence being made public, the Minister received representa tives of the public press and in frequent interviews with them intended for pub lication, added to the impugnments which he had already made of the good faith of this Government in its public action and international dealings. Al though ample time and opportunity has been afforded him for a disavowal, modi fication or correction of his statements, to some of which his attention was called personally by the undersigned, yet no such disavowal or modification has been made by him through the channels in which his statements first found publicity. The question is thus presented whether it is compatible with the dignity, se curity and independent sovereignty of the United States to permit a representa tive of a foreign government in this country, not only to receive and answer without disapproval, and confirm by his repetition, aspersions upon its political action, but al»o to interfere in its domes tic affairs by advising persons formerly his countrymen as to their political course as citizens of the United States as between this country and Great Britain. There can be no question as to the com plete severance of the ties of original al legiance, by naturalization. The dis putes on this point were finally put at rest by the treaty of naturalization con concluded by the two countries on the 13th of May, 1870. Therefore it will not be contended, nor was such contention ever admitted by us, that citizens of the United States of Brisish origin are sub ject in any claim of the country of their original allegiance. The undersigned also has the honor to call attention to the provision of Section 5.335 of the revised statutes of the United States, by which severe penal ties are visited upon a citizen of the United States, who without authority or permission of this Government, com mences or carries on any verbal or writ ten correspondence or intercourse with any foreign Government, or any officer or agent thereof, either with intent to in fluence the action of Buch Government or officer in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or with an intent to defeat measures of the Government of the United States. These penalties are made equally applicable to every citizen of the United States, not duly authorized, who counsels, advises or assists in any such correspondence with similar unlawful intent. The undersigned respectfully advises that the attention of the. Attorney-Gen eral of the United States be directed to these enactments, in order that an in vestigation may be made with a view to ascertain whether they have not been violated in the present case by the corre sjxjndent of the British Minister. By your direction the attention of the British Government has, in the spirit of comity, been called to the conduct of its Minister as above described, but without result. It therefore becomes necessary for this Government to consider whether, as the guardian of ite own self-respect and of the integrity of its institutions, it wili permit further intercourse to be held through the present British Minister at this capital. It is to be observed that precedents are not wanting as to the ques tion under consideration. It is a settled rule essential to the maintenance of inter national intercourse that a diplomatic rep resentative mußt be a person grata to tbe Government to which he is accredited. If by his conduct he renders himself a person non grata, the announcement of the fact may be made to his government. In the present case all the requirements of comity have been fulfilled, the facts having been duly communicated to Her Majesty's Government with the expres sion of the opinion of this Government thereto. Respectfully submitted, T. F. Bayard. TUB CABINET MEBTINO, The Cabinet meeting was attended by Secretaries Bayard and Endicott and Attorney-General Garland. Assistant- Secretary Thompson, of the Treasury, and Comodore Harmony. Acting Secre tary of the Navy, was present during a portion of the session, discussing meas ures for the relief of the whalers ice bound in the Arctic ocean. The regular session, however, was devoted mainly to the consideration of the case of the British Minister, and the result is shown in the statement furnished the press by the Secretary of State this evening. Af ter Secretary Bayard had prepared this statement he walked over to the White House and submitted it to the President for his approval. The President perused it carefully and suirgested a few verbal changes in the introduction, and when these had been made,-the members of the press were furnished with copies. SACKVILLE COMES UP SMILING. At the British Legation this evening access was denied to all newspaper men, and they were informed that Sir Sack ville had nothing to say. An Associated Press reporter, however, managed to have a copy of the report of Secretary Bayard to the President sent in to the Minister. Sir Sackville in person re turned the copy to the waiting reporter, and cordially expressed thanks for hav ing had an opportunity to read the re port, which, he said, he had not seen before. He declined to express any opinion in regard to it, saying, "I have nothing to Bay." Sir Sackville's face, as he said this, wore a pleasant smile, and he did not seem in the least disturbed at the turn affairs had taken. ENGLISH COMMUNICATIONS KEPT SECRET. Minister Phelps cables that he has re turned to London from Hatfield House, where he has been in consultation with Salisbury respecting the letter of Minister Sackville-West. The Department of State has received cablegrams from him fully explaining the situation, which were laid before the Cabinet meeting to-day. Secretary Bayard, when seen to-night, said there was nothing he could say in addition to what he stated in his report to the President. The Government's action, he said, constituted a complete severance of its relations with Minister West. Secretary Bayard declined absolutely to give out anything in regard to the spirit in which the communica tions of the United States were received by the British Government. FORBEARANCE CEASED TO BE A VIRTUE. A Post reporter to-night put tbe follow ing question to Secretary Bayard : Have you ever at any time formally requested or demanded of the British Government the recall of Sir Sackville West?" The Secretary replied: No, no; posi tively no; all statements to that effect are absolutely and unqualifiedly untrue. We forwarded to the British Government the facts of the case. The President waited what he considered a sufficient length of time before he resolved upon definite action, and finding the British Government were apparently doing nothing in the matter, decided in view of the emergency to do what has been done to-day. PUBLIC APPROVAL. Tbe Administration's Action Calls Forth General Approbation. New York, October 30.—The Sun will say editorially of Sir Sackville's recall: If Mr. Clevejand has erred in his treat ment of this annoyiog incident, it has been on the side of overdeliberation, and yet it may be thought that the humiliation of the British Government is greater since it failed to take advantage of the loop-hole of escape offered by Mr. Cleveland, and its Minister is not recall ed by it, but warned to quit by the Gov ernment to which he is accredited. Mr. Cleveland has reasserted the great com mandment of "Mindyourown business," and in the future English Ministers to this country will probably stick to it. HOW IT MAY AFFECT VOTES. Ihe Times says: The incident is ended in a manner altogether creditable to the Administration at Washington, and with the least possible harm. There is only one way in which it is now likely to have an effect upon votes, and that is through the contempt it must excite for the party which in all probability put up the whole scheme for campaign effect. There is nothing more to be deprecated in our politics than the assumption that there are classes of voters whose action is to be determined by appeals to preju dices founded on national distinctions that have no connection with our own affairs. "white lie's" wail. The Tribune says: A prompt rebuke administered the instant Sir Sackville was discovered meddling in our election might have caused the people, in their satisfaction with such a maintenance of executive dignity, to overlook the fact that the British Minister was electioneer ing in Cleveland's interest, because he knew it was in the interest of Great Britain. But the President waited too long. He did not discover anything wrong in the matter until the uproar in the country showed that the exposure was hurting him. Then he got mad. The Minister goes in disgrace; his elec tioneering message remains behind: that can not be recalled. BENNETT IS ENGLISH, YOU KNOW. The Ilerald says: The dignity and self-respect of the country and Mr. Cleveland's own dignity required that if so unpleasant a thing were to be done, it should be done quietly and decently without bluster. This country is too great to bluster. Give Mr. Bayard his passports to Delaware. Mr. Cleveland, you can't afford to have such an incom petent and hystericky person as your ad viser. If you retain him he will, before you know it, make you ridiculous in the face of the whole world. Or if you must keep him, don't take his advice on any subject except terrapin. A MANLY, STRAIGHT-FORWARD COURSE. San Francisco, October 30.—Com menting editorially on tbe action of tbe President in having Sir Sackville-West informed that his presence is no longer acceptable to our Government the Exam iner to-morrow will says: The President has taken the manly, straight-forward course that is always natural to him. The agreeable and politic thing to do would have been to make a show of indignant and energetic action until after the election, and then gradually to let the matter fade out of sight, but Mr. Cleveland is not an adept in tru-ks of this kind. A thing that is senouß enough to demand a pretense of acting, is serious enough in hie eyes to demand the acting. HE GOES BUT THE LETTER REMAINS. The Chroniek will say that Sir Sack ville simply wrote a personal letter to a correspondent at Pomona, this State, ex pressing sentiments the truth of which he thought could be naturally drawn from the observations of a man in his surroundings. Sackville must go, but he leaves a letter behind him and his exit does not alter the truth a single particle. BLAINE KEEPS MUM. New York, October 30.—James G.
