THE GREAT ISSUE.
Pith and Point of tlie Po litical Battle. THE PRESS AND PLATFORM. Democratic Doctrine on Tariff Re form as Taught by the Great Leaders East aud West. The Hbbald yesterday promised to give to-day the clippings from the New York Times, which Minister West sent to the perfidious scoundrel who marks his identity under the assumed name, Chas. F. Murchison. Reference to tbe intent of this article is not necessary. It is a moßt severe and a highly merited arraignment of the Kepulican party for its unpatriotic and in all ways false position on the THE FISHERIES TREATY. The discussion and rejection of the fisheries treaty is, perhaps, the most re markable instance of narrow partisan ship in the treatment of a great inter national question ever known in our history. The controversy over the rights of American fishing vessels in Canadian waters and Canadian ports has been waged, off and on, ever since the found ation of the Government. The treaty of 1818, when left in unqualified effect, has been the subject of constant dispute, and out of the different interpretations put upon it by the parties interested have sprung the various collisions and griev ances that have disturbed the relations of two friendly countries with large in terests in common. After the abroga tion of the fishery clauses of the treaty of 1871, they were thrown back upon the old convention that had been prolific of so much misunderstanding. Those interested in the fisheries pro fessed to be satisfied with the privileges granted by that agreement, if only the duties on Canadian fish products were maintained, but it immediately gave rise to new troubles because they claimed more than the treaty granted. The Canadian treatment of our vessels under the interpretation which the Dominion authorities gave to the treaty renewed the old controversy. There was one of two things to be done. Hither a new agreement must be entered into which would remove all doubts as to mutual rights, or a course of retaliation must be adopted as a means of bringing Canada to terms. Ab to the comparative wisdom of these two courses, there could be no doubt. Retaliation would settle no disputed question, and instead of establishing satisfactory rela tions between the countries, it was sure to exasperate their relations, making a bad matter worse and leading to conse quences which no man could foresee. CoDgress gave authority for such a policy, but it was the part of wisdom to avoid "it if possible. It was certainly an alterna tive worth trying. The negotiation of a new treaty cover ing this subject and nothing else had never been attempted, and the Adminis tration determined to try it by the best possible plan, tbat of appointing a joint commission to take the whole subject into consideration, and endeavor to reach an agreement satisfactory to both sides. Its overtures were received in a friendly spirit and the matter was taken up with a disposition to maintain all just rights and claims and to reach conclusions that would be mutually beneficial and pro mote friendly relations. Tiie treaty that was agreed to by the commissioners left no doubt or ambiguity, and went far be yond the treaty of 1818 in conceding privileges to our fishing vessels and securing for them considerate treatment. In fact, it secured everything that the fishermen had insisted upon as of any material importance to them. It was calculated to put an end to dis putes and grievances and relieve the relations of the United States and Canada from their one source of danger. But these negotiations were undertaken by a Democratic Ad ministration, and their success would add to its strength and prestige. This, and this alone, was the cause of opposition from the Republican majority in the Senate. The tone and temper of nearly all the speeches on the Republican side have shown this motive for hostility un mistakably. In the first place, the Com mittee on Foreign Relations took the preposterous position that this was not under all the circumstances of the case a proper subject for diplomatic negotia tion, and then it assumed, contrary to the plain meaning of the Constitution and the bulk of precedents, that tbe Pre sident had no right to initiate such nego tiations without the consent of the Sen ate. This revealed at once the partisan temper of the majority of the committee and of the Senate. Throughout the debate this temper lias been maintained, and nothing like a calm and fair consideration has been given to the merits of the treaty by Re publican Senators. They were deter mined from the first to reject the work of the President and the joint commis sion, and were intent only on devising pretexts for their predetermined action. Regardless of consequences to the relations of the country with a friendly power or to the vast commercial inter ests involved in those relations, they were eager only to deprive the Demo cratic Administration of credit for its efforts to obtain a peaceful settlement of the difficulties and of the prestige that would come from the success of those ef forts. That was the sole aim and object of the Republican Senators, and it was obvious on the face of ail they said and did down to the final vote of rejection. The most remarkable fact in connection with their proceedings has been the calmness and apathy with which the commercial bodies of the country and representatives of our, great trade inter ests have allowed them to go on without raising a hand. We are confident that the sober sense of the people all this while has not been deceived. Every legitimate claim of tlie fishing interests would have been secured by the ratification of the treaty. They certainly will not be benefited by its rejection, while vastly greater and more important interests will be put in jeopardy. This ought to be understood and appreciated by the people, and so far as this question enters into political consideration in this canvass, it should be regarded as a question of confidence in the Administration or of support for the course of mean and reckless partisan ship pursued by the Republican Senators. On that question there ought to be no doubt of the popular verdict. There is this further consideration in favor of sup porting tbe administration on this issue. It will leave the question still open for friendly means of settlement of some kind, while a support of the Senate's po sition would close all avenues of future negotiations and bring upon the country THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 2. 1888. the disastrous consequence of retaliation, hostility and possibly war. It would put an end to all prospects of improving the commercial relations of the United States and Canada. This is one of the questions which the people should keep in mind in casting their votes next November. — :New York Times, August 22nd. Morton'* Candidacy a Speculation. .Several leading Democrats ciaim that the nomination of the Hon. Levi P. Morton was a financial speculation, and it will surprise New Yorkers to learn that tbe State of North Carolina is being stumped on the issue from facts alleged to have come into the hands of Senator Ransom when he was in the city last week. Ever since the opening of the present campaign Mr. Morton has taken the liveliest kind of interest in its progress. This was hut natural in a candidate the Vice-Presidency, but. there was one thing that pu/./.led Senator Quay. That was Mr. Morton's great anxiety about North Carolina. Every day or two he would drop into National Head quarters to see ('olonel Quay. When the rosy outlook in New York or Indiana was laid before him, he took it as a matter of course, and would then ask : "But what do you hear from North Carolina?" He insisted, it is said, that North Caro lina could be carried for Harrison, and urged Mr. Quay not to be afraid to put the money in the State. His knowledge of the political situation of the State, it is said, astonished the Chairman, inas much as he never showed the same knowledge of any other State, except, of course, New York. It is claimed that he even subscribed what would be his salary for three years, in case he was elected, for campaign purposes, with the provision that an aggressive campaign be oponed at once in the land of the Tar-heels, which gave eleven electoral votes for Cleveland in 1884 by a plurality smaller than that which defeated Mr. Blame in New York. Mr. Ransom came here to find out what had become of tbe special tax bonds issued by the State of North Cnro lina in 18118, while the State was under carpet-bag rule, and repudiated three years later. The bonds, he states, are now owned by the great banking firm of Morton, Bliss & Co., and with accrued interest amount to upwards of $30,000,000. When issued it was pretended that these bonds were to be devoted to the building of several internal railroads, in the promotion of which Milton S. Little field was chief actor. A special tax was levied for their pay ment, which gave them their name. The railroads were never built. Little field brought the bonds to New York and sold them for what he could get and built no railroads. It is history that as soon as North Car olina passed from under carpet-bag rule, these bonds -were promptly repudiated on the ground of gross fraud, and a con stitutional provision was enacted for bidding their payment unless author ized by a majority of the voters at the ballot-box. 'Norton, Bliss & Co., it is claimed, bought up $14,700,000 of these bonds on "spec" for a mere song after their repu diation, and have made several attempts to collect them through the courts. Test suits have been brought on indi vidual bonds in the United States Circuit Court of North Carolina in the name of persons living in the State to avoid the provisions in the Eleventh Amendment of the Constitution. One of these suits is now pending in the United States Court of North Carolina. If it should succeed, the collection of the payment would be difficult unless the Legislature and Governor should be in favor of paying it. These are to be elected with the Na tional ticket this fall and with one of tbe three Supreme Court Judges would in sure the payment of the bonds, and this North Carolina Democrats are claiming as the Bupreme motive of Mr. Morton's great interest in the State of North Caro lina.—[N. Y. Morning Journal. The Two Bills. The Mills bill reduces the average duty to 42.68 per cent. The Republican Sen ate bill reduces the average to 42.34 per cent. If tariff reduction means free trade the Republican measure is therefore 0.45 per cent, more of a free trade bill than the Democratic measure. The Mills bill revises but eleven of the fourteen schedules. The Senate bill re vises them all. If tariff revision is a "first step towards free trade" the Re publican measure therefore takes three more than the Democratic. The Mills bill extends the free list; so does the Senate bill, and by nearly the same number of articles. If one is free trade for this reason, so is the other. The Mills bill would cut off about $75,000,000 of the surplus. The Senate bill cuts off $72,000,000. If there is "no surplus" how dare the Republicans pro pose this?—[N. Y. World. A BIG DEAL PENDING!. A Wealthy Syndicate Want* the Electric Hoad. The general feeling about town yester day regarding the sale of the cable road was one of satisfaction. The business men realize that the result will be very beneficial to tbe city and think that it is one of the most important events in the history of the city. "It means," said an influential merchant to a Herald man yesterday, "that we will be advertised in the East as we have never been before. The syndicate that has made the purchase operates street-car systems in Chicago, In dianapolis, Davenport, Kock Island aud Moline, and in each of their cars the business men of this city could for easy terms have advertisements of Southern California placed. I think that the real estate men can afford to wear smiles ou their faces to-day." ANOTHER IMPORTANT HOVE Was announced yesterday. For some time past the electric railroad on Pico street has been in distress, for although Colonel C. H. Howlaud, its President, who put $50,000 besides the cost of his stock into the concern has been indefatigable in his efforts to make the road a success, he has been poorly supported by his asso ciates. As a result the line went into the hands of Receiver W. R. Blackman in which condition it, at present stands. The statement made, which is authentic though not yet official, is that negotia tions are pending with a wealthy syndi cate for a transfer of the road. There is every prospect of the deal going through and if it does the syndicate state that they will put the road in first-class condi tion and equip it as well as any of tlie roads in the country. An eight or ten minute service will be established and nothing left undone to ensure ample accommoda tions for the residents along the line. It will be remembered that some time ago an airline to Santa Monica was proposed and finally incorporated, with Messrs. F. M. Keach, A. J. Haley, Eugene Ger main and H. L. Flash as directors. This road is surveyed to run from the heart of Santa Monica via. the Palms to this city, and although not definitely decided, it has always been understood that it would make a connection with the Electric road at the city limits. If the deal is consummated the airline will doubtless be heard from again and raised from its present dormant position to activity. The directors state that grading will be commenced very soon and they will doubtless hurry things if the Electric line is improved as antici pated. THE RIGHT OF WAY. Tlie Council look* Over tlie Pro. posed Line. Messrs. Bosbyshell, Barrett, Hum phreys, Teed, Collins and .Mathews, of the City Council, assembled at the city hall to proceed with Mr. I.unt represen tative of the Southern Pacific R. R. in the matter of the right of way, Mr. Knox, attorney for Mr. U. j. Griffith and a number of citizens, to the place where the S. P. R. I!, desires to obtain per mission to cross the streets of the city. The party was driven rapidly in carriages to the corner of San Pedro and Pine streets where about fifty citizens to gether with Mr. G. W, Frink and Mr. G. j. Griffith were in waiting to discuss the matter. The property owners had gathered to protest to the grant ing of tne right of way over the streets, and a vigorous objection was made, some of the people saying that they would sell out their lots if the per mission was granted. The property owners represented to the Councilmen that instead of branching across to Ala meda street at this point as was propos ed, the railroad company should have crossed through the Wolfskill tract, or through the property of Mr. G. J. Grif fith, on the southern boundary of the city. Mr. Lunt, for the S. P. R. R. Com pany, stated that the Company had en deavored to cross through Mr. Griffith's property, but that Mr. Griffith had asked too much money for the right of way. The first line he proposed to run through this property was a direct continuance of the track from the point where it now turns into San Pedro street to Alameda street with no curves except that at Alameda street. For this right of way Mr. Lunt stated Mr. Griffith asked $-',000 an acre for eighty acres. This land was all of the Briswalter property lying south of the proposed right of way", which Mr. Grif fith thought would be ruined by the rail road. Mr. Griffith then proposed to sell the right of way along the southern boundary of the property, but it was found that one of the property owners near where it was proposed to go into Alameda street would not either sell his property or allow the road to pass over it. Other lines were talked of, but they were either impractical or impossible. He then went to work and purchased the lots on the back of which it is proposed to build the road from San Pedro street. This line will run at the back of these lots, on the north ern side of Pine street, and so far as he was able to ascertain the property owners who protested were those whose property was south of Pine street and their abjections to the route were that it still left a portion of the ioad on San Pedro street. Mr. G. J. Griffith said that he had offered the company the right-of-way across his ranch at the southern boundry, and about fourteen acres of land for $111,000, and this offer was still open. lie ceuld not af ford to have the right - of way cross through the center of his prop erty and cut all the blocks diagonally. He thought that the company could easily have taken the lower route and have saved itself two ten degree curves and could have obtained the right of way across other property to Alameda street. Mr. 11 ink said that all the company desired was a franchise across tho streets. After looking over the ground the party returned to the city and the matter will come up before the Board of Public Works at a later date. THE TRAIN ROBBERS. Tlicy are Probably Headed by Bar ter, of Texas. In addition to the dispatch printed in the Hkkalb yesterday morning regard ing the train robbery in Mexico, the fol lowing particulars have been received from El Paso: Tbe Mexican Central passenger train was held up sixty-two miles below El Paso, at 4:30 on Wednesday morning, by three masked men. They came on the engine over the tender and forced the engineer to stop the train and get off. They cut off the express car, getting $2,000. Express Messenger Villegas jumped out of the side door while the robbers were breaking the end door and ran off with the keys of the safe, thus preventing the robbers from getting its valuable contents. The robbers then FREE FROM LIME AND ALUM. THE ROYAL BAKING POWDER ABSOLUTELY PURE. a The only Baking Powder yet found by chemical anal ysis to be entirely free frem lime, and absolutely pure, is the " Royal." This perfect purity results from the exclu sive use of cream of tartar specially refined and prepared by patent processes which totally remove the tartrate of lime and other impurities. The cost of this chemically pure cream of tartar is much greater than any other, and it is used in no baking powder but the " Royal." Dr. Edward G. Love, formerly analytical chemist for the U. S. Government, who made the analyses for the New York State Board of Health in its investigation of baking powders, and whose intimate knowledge of the ingredients of all those sold in this market enables him to speak authoritatively, says of the purity and wholesome ness of the "Royal" : "I have tested the Royal Baking Powder, and find it composed of pure and wholesome ingredients. It is a cream of tartar powder, and does not contain either alum or phosphates, or other injurious substance. "E. G. LOVE, Ph. D., "V. 8. Government Chemist." came on with the engine nearly to Juarez, and there abandoned it. They cat the telegraph wire, and it was 8 o'clock before a telegram was received at luarez telling of the rotiberv. The men were Americans, bat there is no clue as to who they are or their whereabouts. Speaking of the matter ventetday, De tective Will Smith, of the" Southern Pa cific, said that in all probability the thieves were headed by Barter, the Tex as desperado and train-robber, who is known to be one of the leaders of the gang that manipulated the Flatonia hold-up about a year ago. Whittier and Barter's brother were of the same gang, but they were killed during the recent attempt to plunder v train near Flatonia. Barter is the only one who escaped, and it is deemed probable that he has organ ized a gang and taken it into Mexico. TWO STRONG TEAMS. Chicago Vs. All.Anierlcu to I'lay Here on the 15th. At the Burlington office yesterday a very handsome itinerary of Spaulding's Australian Baseball tour was received. The special dining car "Cosmopolitan" has been chartered from Chicago to Denver and the menu is one that would satisfy the most critical of epicures.

They will play in Honolulu, Tutuiia and Auckland, and make an extensive tour through Austra lia, leaving Sydney, N. S. W., for home again on the steamer Mariposa, on Feb ruary L' 3, 1880. Mrs. C. Ducuminun's Hours. Mrs. C. Ducummun, President of the Ladies' Benevolent Society, gives her services to the poor of the city cheer fully, but is unable, in justice to herself and family, to be continually at its ser vice. For a long time there has been no hour of the day or evening at which she has not been subject to the call of persons applying for the help of the So ciety. From this time forth she will re ceive personal applications on Mondays and Fridays from !) to 11 a. m. Applica tions made at other times must be in writing, as no applicant will be admitted to her house at other than the times specified. Card Irom J. W. Vcnablc. Editors Herald—My graetful ac knowledgment is due to the Times for calling the attention of the tax-payers of Los Angeles county to the fact that through my agency the cost to them of the excellent set of maps, provided for the Assessor's office was only $10,000. By applying at the office of the County Clerk the tax-payer will learn that after duly advertising the same, the bids for said set of maps varied from $25,000 down to $ 1(1,000, at which lowest figure I kicked, pledging to get the work done for less money.
