COM » W *Ie. J. DOMINGUEZ. To Democratic Voters. Next Tuesday the National election will take place. Let every Democratic voter in the country go to the polls and cast a straight Democratic ticket. Let no business nor other consideration pre vent you from doing this duty to your country. Scrutinize carefully the ticket you cast. There will be many bogus tickets in the field. Do not let yourself he deceived. Cast the straight regular Democratic ticket and do not scratch it. The Hebai.d has made arrangements with the Western Union Telegraph Com pany to run a wire directly into this office, from which the election news will be taken next Tuesday night. Bulletins will be posted in a conspicuous place out side which will show to the public at all times how the count is progressing, and how the great Democratic majorities are rolling up. - Mr. Shobtridge, one of the Harrison electors, is trying to beguile a few ignor ant voters into giving him their votes. He tells them he has a bit of personal vanity to gratify in running ahead of the other Harrison electors, and that a vote so cast for him does not change the count for President. Of course this is all a lie. To vote for Shortridge or any other Republican elector is to vote for Harrison for President. How magnificently the Grand Old Ro man has held out through the trying or deal of tbe campaign. Mr. Harrison looks haggard, careworn and tired from shaking hands at his own door-step. Mr. Thurman travels over ten or a dozen States two or three times and makes a multitude of able speeches. At the close of all his labors he comes up fresh as the youngest man on the stump. A grand manhood indeed is that of Allen G. Thurman. Those most affected by the fisheries question are the Maine fishermen. They know as much about what the present administration is doing to protect their interests as either Minister West or Mr. Blame. The recent election in Maine which Mr. Blame called a ''political revolution" shows a Democratic gain on plurality of nearly 2,000 and the analysis of the vote shows that more than half this gain comes from those fishing vil lages whose inhabitants were, according to Mr. Blame, robbed of their rights by President Cleveland. The Board of Election Commissioners in San Francisco have discovered an in genious plan adopted by the Republican Registrar, Prindle, to beat the Demo cratic ticket. The Registrar's duty is to place the names of the district voters on the Register. In one case twenty-six names had been suspiciously ommitted. Names are spelt wrong and residences of- voters wrongly given on the Register, and other suspicious omissions and alterations have been developed. But the most serious piece of rascality discovered is that the Registrar has used pasters on the Register. By this means he has added names and covered up with other names the names of voters that originally appeared on the Register. There is undoubtedly meditated fraud in this. The Democrats have been thoroughly aroused to the existence of a plot in tbe Registrar's office to carry the city for the Republicans by extensive registration frauds. The same thing was done in 1870, when San Francisco was carried for Hayes, wholesale additions of fictitious names to the Register, and which names were voted by repeaters. THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 2. 1888. The Boom is On! Yesterday the Herald chronicled the sale of the cable road system of Los An- Angeles to a syndicate of heavy capital ists of Chicago. The incident is one of no little moment. It means that this city is to have with all possible dispatch, one of the most efficient systems of street railroads in the country. But that is not all. It also means that a large number of heavy capitalists are to be interested in a vital way in the prosperity of la>s Angeles. They will come and go fre quently here and they will bring their friends. They will tell of what they see and laud our climate and the resources of this section. All Los Angeles has to ask is that people be attracted to her gates. To see this city and this sec tion is to be charmed with both, and to be attracted to this spot as the most de lightful in the world for a home. Simultaneously with this good news comes a report that negotiations have made considerable progress and are likely to be brought to a successful ter mination by which the electric railroad is to be transferred to people who are abundantly able to equip it and run it in a3 efficient a manner as any line in the State. Then comes the stirring news that Eastern people have opened negotiations looking to the acquisition of the Main and Tenth street hotel. It looks as if this enterprise could be set afoot again and pushed rapidly to completion. The persons who desire to get control of the property are probably now on the way out here to take a look at the situation. There is no more promis6ing enterprise in sight to-day than this great hotel. The city needs such a hostelry more than anything else. And the results to be expected for its erection will more than justify the outlay necessary to complete it. The ground on which the hotel is to stand will in three years be worth $1,250,000. There is only one matter of regret about this porposed transfer of the hotel. That en terprise ought to have been carried out by our own people as an outward sign and exponent of their interest and faith in the city. Then to cap the climax cf all this revival of the boom comes the news that the Rodeo de las Aquas ranch between here and Santa Monica, embracing the townsite of Morocco with all the water rights and other appurtenances has been sold to a party of New Yorkers for the snug sum of $4,000, --000. The transfer of a San Joaquin ranch for $1,600,000 is expected to be consum mated in a few weeks. Yesterday the property on the corner of First and Vine street, opposite the lumber yard on the latter, was sold for $113,750 and a house and lot on Hill street were sold for $30,000. The Vote of New York City. In 18S4 the vote east in New York City was about two hundred and ten thousand. Cleveland's plurality over Blame was about forty-three thousand. This year the registered voters number two hundred and eighty-seven thousand, against two hundred and twenty-seven thousand in 1884. The stay-at-homes were only seventeen thousand, or much less than ten per cent, of the registra tion. It is pretty certain that all the vote will be gotten out this time, owing to the intense interest felt in the National issue, and to the fivefold fight going on for the Mayoralty. It will be observed that the ratio of the Democratic vote in the city is about Bixty per cent, of the total vote. The vote next Tues day may be expected to reach two hundred and seventy-five thousand, which would give Cleveland a lead in the city of fifty-five thousand. In order to test the temper of the peo ple and get something nearer than ratios based on glittering generalities the New York World with splendid en terprise has for several days had a whole army of reporters out interviewing right and left. These interviews are genuine, as name, occupation and address are in all cases given, and the reporters are in structed to take the voters as they run. The Produce Exchange was made the ground for one day's battle. The ele vated railroad as it brought the people to the city one morning yielded up another batch of results. A big Brooklyn ferry was worked on for another pointer. Then the labor people were attacked, and last of all the Irish. Some half dozen of these have been taken—all that have come to hand thus far, and the summa ries are given for the information of the readers of the Herald. Here is one which is pretty evenly divided: Total interviewed 175 For Cleveland 91 For Harrison 07 Changes, Blame to Cleveland 15 Changes, Cleveland to Harrison 7 Changes, Blame to Fisk 1 First voters.

There was not a Harrison man found on the rounds of these reporters, and more than one hundred of those taken said that four years ago they had voted for Blame. Last of all there is the Produce Ex change compared with the Irish in this fashion: Produce Irish- Exchange men. Cleveland 290 332 Hsriison 314 (Hi Fisk • 8 1 Cowdrey — 1 Chang**, 81-iiaeto Cleveland 25 10 Changes, Cleveland U> Harrison. 36 23 First vote for Cleveland 12 11 First vote for Harrison 15 1 Now. if we make a general summary of these tables we will find this as the re sult: Total number of votes 2,824 For Cleveland 1,510 For Harrison 895 Blame to Cleveland 191 Cleveland to Harrison 107 First votes for Cleveland 76 First votes for Harrison 45 Grand total for Cleveland 1,777 Grand total for Harrison. 1,047 Per centage for Cleveland 62 + Per centage for Harrison .37+ The result of all this various interview ing simply goes to show that the parties have changed their relative position, one to the other, by the discussion of the campaign, and the change that has taken place favors Cleveland. He is favored in the changes from Blame to Cleveland, and he is favored in the first-voters. These are two very signifi cant pointers. The Blame Democrats are coming back to their party to a larger degree than tbe -Mugwumps are going back to Republicanism. Indeed, the Mugwump to a great extent has left his old alliances for good. He came out of the Kepubliean camp on the Civil Service issue, and be will stay out on the tariff issues. The young men are attaching themselves to the party of living issues, the Democracy, rather than to the wavers of the bloody shirt. The gain to the Democracy amounts to five per ceDt. of the total vote. That ratio of the estimated vote of two hun dred and seventy-five thousand would add nearly fourteen thousand to Cleve land's pluiality, as estimated on the old ratios, and put him nearly sev enty thousand ahead in New York City—a very probab'e result. Add to this twenty-five thousand plurality to come from Brooklyn and its surroundings would send the tri lm pliant Democracy to Harlem Bridge in the lead ninety thousand. That is about what the figure will be. Pour years ago Brooklyn, County, and Staten Island contributed twenty thousand plurality to Cleveland. The registration in Brooklyn for this year is thirty thous and more than in 1884. Any straw, however frail, will do for our Republican friends to catch at in their present desperate condition. They see the State of California shrinking from their grasp, chiefly because Harri son hugged "the little brown men from China" to his borom when he was United States Senator. To break the force of his well-known record, they have concocted a circular which is as full of mendacity and deception as an egg is of meat. One of its claims is that Harrison showed his antipathy to the Mongolians when he voted for Edmund's amend ment to Farley's amendment. Let us see what that vote amounted to. Sen ator Farley liad succeeded in grafting upon the Restriction bill section 14, as follows: "Hereafter no State court or court of the United States shall admit Chinese to citizenship, and all laws in conflict with this act are hereby repealed." April 25, 1882, on a motion to strike this section out, Mr. Harrison voted aye. Now comes the milk in the cocoanut. On the 2Sth of April Senator Edmunds, hop ing to kill the Farley amendment by an equivocal substitute, moved to insert the following in lieu of section 1-1: "Nothing in this act shall be construed to change the existing naturalization laws so as to admit Chinese to citizenship." Harrison voted aye for this substitute, and on this vote the Republican circular says that he vindicated his claim to being sound on the Chinese goose. When we recollect that "under the existing naturalization laws" Chinamen had been admitted to citizenship in Indiana, Massachusetts and elsewhere, the Sene gambian in the wood pile will be appar ent. The "existing laws" had admitted Chinese to citizenship, and Harrison voted that these laws should not be dis turbed. What a campaign of deception our friends over the way are making of this! Who will honestly deny that, in the United States, all taxes, direct or in direct, should be levied for the benefit of the masses? Yet it is the wealthy classes—the extreme minority of the population—that now secure the benefits accruing under the present high-war tariff system of taxation. It is all on one side, like the handle of a jug. Yet there are workingmen in the Republican ranks who are glad to pay an unneces sary tax of 58 per cant, on the clothes they wear, and a correspondingly heavy and unnecessary tax upon all of the; other articles they consume. The high pro tection tradition is firmly fixed in their minds, and so they go inconsiderately on. None is so blind as he who will not see. A Republican Lament. [by the national printer jn expectancy.

Republican Demi-Gods en the Stump. THE ANANIASES OF THE AGE. Ex-Statesman Blame and the Buck eye Refrigerator Tune their Discordant Lyres. : Associated Press DiSDßtches to the Herald. ! Norwich, Conn., November I.—An en thusiastic crowd of twenty-five thousand people gathered at Williams Park to-day to hear .fames G. Blame speak upon the issues of the campaign. The crowd had come from all the surrounding points, and a large portion of it from Rhode Island. When the orator mounted the stand and presented himself at the rail he was cheered by thousands who, when he had begun to speak, were too far away to hear him, but who cheered vigorously when others cheered. After discussing the tariff question, Mr. Blame said : I have heard of a speech by Mr. Bayard, Secretaty of State. He is a gentleman of very high sentiments. In fact, there is nobody who speaks the English language, so far as 1 know, since Joseph Surface, wno basso fine sentiments as Mr. Bayard. Mr. Bayard's speech is devoted to the wicked conspiracy of the Republicans. They have all taken that word. Mr. Thurman has taken that word, "the wicked conspiracy of the Republicans," that entrapped Lord Sack ville into writing a letter, and he calls down the wrath of the country upon those most wicked conspirators that got up that letter that Lord Sackville answered. Now I must say Mr. Bayard puts himself in a very peculiar position, because it' there was a wicked conspiracy of leading Republi cans to entrap Lord Sackville into writ ing an imprudent letter, these conspir ators ought to be punished; but instead of this ac punishes Lord Sackville. He says: "Here is a most unprincipled, monstrous conspiracy against this man, and in consequence of this conspiracy, of which 1 cannot get the authors, i will send Lord Sackville back home and make him bear the sins of these conspirators." This is a very re markable statement. They acknowledge that they are not quick to do so, but after ten days, and after they have re ceived advices and telegrams from all parts of the country that if they did not start Lord Sackville, the Irish vote would start, then Lord Sackville had to go. It will be an agreeable thing in England, to Lord Salisbury, Prime Min ister, to know that President Cleveland's Administration deliberately weighed Lord Sackville against the Irish vote and started him. We have another paper here speaking of conspiracies and wicked things, the World, which I believe is counted a good Democratic organ. It is opposing Abram Hewitt and it reproduces the Morey let ter, that was forged eight years ago against the late lamented President Gar field wheu he was the Republican can didate, and now the World is belaboring Mr. Hewitt because he said it was a true letter and aided in putting the forgery into circulation. That is pretty amus ing. It opposes Abram Hewitt for Mayor of New York because Mr. Hewitt lenthis name as endorser of the rascally scheme of publishing a forged letter against a Republican candidate. Now, gentlemen, there is a good old adage, which I would not wish to quote, about somebody fall ing out and honest men getting their dues; but I did not expect to live to see the day when one section of the Demo cratic party wonld want to swear off the responsibility of the Morey letter upon the other. There it stands. The auda cious forgery reproduced—forgery all through ; and one of the Democrats who gave his high reputation and high char acter to put it into circulation was Abram Hewitt, and it rises up against him now, not from Republicans, but from other Democrats, and when the Democrats all get to exposing each other that will be a terrible day. If they do that the Repub licans will not need stump speeches, or mass meetings, or flags, or any other paraphernalia to carry on the election. The election would carry itself. Speaking ol Mr. Bayard's position in regard to Lord Sackville, the Democratic party never has conducted the affairs ol the country with Great Britain with dignity or with advantage to this country Never; and if you will contrast the ad ministrations of General Grantand of Ab raham Lincoln in their conduct of affairs with Great Britain, with what has been done by the Democratic party, you will ask no other issues. We owe to the Democratic party and to its bad diplom acy the loss of British Columbia, that vast province on the Pacific Coast, which would give us the entire coast from Beh ring Straits down to the Gulf of California To bad diplomacy and the surrender of the Democratic party, we owe the Re ciprocity treaty of 1854, in which we got about one article to forty as compared with the Canadians. The Reciprocity treaty, which was thirty-nine degrees on oue side, which was tor our opponents and one degree on our side—we owe that to them. Iv fact, it is not in the power of the Democratic party to give a single treaty or gdiplomatic prjcedure they have made with Great Britain which re dounds to the honor of this country. Now, when General Grant was our President he had the most embarrassing the most trying, the most delicate ques tion in the world to settle with Great Brit ain—the question of the Alabama claims The Democratic party could not have settled these claims, but gentlemen General Grant's administration settled them with honor to the country, with peace between both countries and' with the mutual respect of both countries The Democratic party in the first place has blustered with Great Britain and then surrendered. The Republican party never blustered and never had anything to surrender. The Republicans have always conducted themselves with dignity; they have maintained the honor of the country and have had the respect of their opponents. They have never sought war with Great Britain—never • and when they agreed with Great Britain and made Great Britain agree to it, that we would submit the claims of the Alabama to arbitration, we gained not only a victory for ourselves, but we gained a victory for humanity, and we did more than any other nation in the nine teenth century to bring to a close the bloody arbitratmont of the sword. We did more to establish peace as the law and rule between nations, we did more to add to the great glory of international arbi trament and added the best chapter to in ternational law, and Great Britaian re spects us when under Republican policy more than when under tlie Democratic party. All our precedents have been ; n the line oi honor to oursolves and fair adjustment with'opponents. Habtvobd, Conn., November I.—Mr. Blame reached this city this evening, and after dining with Mr. Bulkley, the Republican candidate for Governor, was escorted to Armory Hall, where he spoke briefly to an audience of 5,000. 41111.1.N A Hill t'EVlilt John sin rii.im Invade* Indiana Willi lit". Chilling- Orulory. Portland, Ind., November 1. —Senator John Sherman made his opening speech in the Indiana campaign this afternoon to a large audience which had gathered from the surrounding country. lie said fn part: An enterprising Democratic pa per said that John Sherman and the Re publicans had given up Indiana. * You will tell him that he lies: but I think Grover Cleveland and all his hosts, if they could see this mass of people would bo willing to give uptheghost, like Mr. West of England. My fellow citizens, how came the Democrats in power in this country? Has there been anything done in the twenty-four years of Republican administration that every 1 >emocrat now within the sound of my voice does not now approve and indorse? They put down slavery as the result of the war. Does any man or woman in this country desire to see slavery restored? We gave to tho people of this country that which they never had before iv Democratic times." Does anybody want to go back to the old shin plaster aud wildcat money ? AYe gave this country tlie greatest credit any country ever had in the world, and now the question again comes up, why was this party turned out of power? Why was it that that Democratic power, de feated over and over again by the loyal States of the Union, was restored again to the control of the Union. I will tell you why. 1 will correct some of yon and tell you why, and if I do not correct yon, why you correct me. in the first place, they said the Republican party had hoarded up money in the Treasury: that we had kept it idle and from the circulation oi the people, aud that if they would get hold of it they would scatter whatever they got hold of". They said the civil service was incorrectly and fraudulently used aud taken care of. They were going to turn the rascals out. They were going to Lave civil service reform. They said the Republicans were extravagant and that if they got, into power they would husband your resources and would not tax you so much. Did they put out that money that was in the treasury? No, no, my countrymen, that went on accumulating. When the Democratic party went into power we had about $130,000,000 kept there to pay the current expenses of the Nation and to maintain the credit of the country, to redeem bonds, etc. We had besides that various other deposits in the Treasury, but it was not the money of the Nation. It was held in trust for "pri vate individuals and they had gold and silver notes and greenbacks for it. Here is the statement of the Secretary of the Treasury, and it shows that the amount on hand now is $220,2!)0,6ti<>.0(>; that is $02,000,000 more than what was in before the Democratic party got into power. I say they promised civil service reform. They were going to turn the rascals out. What rascals did they find to turn out? I say, and say it upon my own responsibility, that Grover Cleveland never pretended to call the many men that he turned out of office, from the petty Postmaster to tne highest officer under his control, rascals. How it will be on the 4th of Marcli next, when Ben Harrison gets in, I could not say so well. There is another thing; they said they would be economical and save your money. What is the result ? It is shown by the statistics of the last four years of Democratic administration that they cost the people $90,000,000 more than the last four years of Repub lican administration. I say now that no single claim has been fulfilled that was promised in 1884. Another thing. All the time when i was Secretary of the Treasury, when ever there was a million dollars over that we had set aside for the purpose of maintaining our credit, etc., I always ap plied it on bands. How is it now ? In stead of that the present Secretary, with the consent of the President, has deposit ed it with certain selected national banks, to the amount of $60,000,000, on the pretenses that it was better to have the money out among the people, rather than to pay bonds. How have they conducted our foreign affairs? Why, they surrendered the fisheries question. They gave up every thing they had, and that was not much, and when the Senate refused to assent to the treaty, they proposed to retaliate on Canada. On who? On the people them selves, and all that it has done is that it finally got the approval of Sir Sackville West. The trouble is Mr. West simply told the truth. There is not a word in West's letter but that every man here knows to be true. In other words all the policy of this administration is in favor of England; and all West said was that Cleveland issued his retaliation proclamation and that it was only for election purposes. That the letter to West was a forgery, I don't know. May be it was, but the letter from West was not a forgery. If I had been in their places I would have said: West told th.i truth and we are standing by him through the whole. But they have given him the shake, and now all that remains for you to do is to give Mr. Cleveland the shake. Mr. Sherman then went on and dis cussed at some length the Mills bill and the tariff, and he made an eloquent ap peal to the Hoosier voters in behalf of Ben Harrison, the hero of Peach Tree Creek, and the man that honored In diana in tho United States Senate for six years.

Secretary Bayard Castigates the Party of Great Moral Ideas. I Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald; [Special to the Herald.l Pomona. Oal., November 1. —The Mur chison-West party of Pomona (formerly the Republican party), is discouraged and has given up the fight here. They pulled down their speakers' stand to-day and (iovernor Sheldon, of New Mexico, who was to speak hero to-night, was left to look out for himself without one of the g. o. p. to meet him at the depot: he slowly but sadly girded up his weary loins, quietly stepped into the Palomares Hotel and went to bed. The once famous but short-lived letter has become so stale here that it is worth one's life to speak of it. The Democrats stand firm under their banner of "Protection to Labor and Tariff Reform," and are pre par ing for a grand Democratic ratifica tion over the election of Cleveland and Thurman. BAIMHD AT BKOOKLI'Ni TUc I>arty of Moral Ideas til veil SoiiieaHard v hacks. New York, November I.—At a mass meeting of Democrats held to-night in Claremont avenue rink, Brooklyn. Hon. Thomas P. Bayard was the principal speaker and in a speech of two hours duration referred at length to the Sack ville affair. Said he: There is one moral monstrosity that for the last few days has been sought to be played in this cam paign to which I must refer. I refer to that piece of political ingenuity called the Murchison letter; but there was no such person, and it devolved upon the party that once boasted as the party of moral ideas, to protect and promote the work of this dishonest man. Thus was false hood clothed in the garb of perjury, and it laid siege to gullibility with absolute suc cess. I ask you whether the use made by the chief orator of the Republican party, and listened to with clapping hands and rejoicing, 1 ask you whether it is not worse than the act of Murchison him self. AVhy is this crime spread? They know it was concerted, and they say they don't care if it was. They joke about it. One distinguished gentleman lias said that it "let the cat out of the bag," and so he can be jocose about an act of perjury and vil lainy. I beg to add another item to your labor in this campaign, and th t is to stamp everywere publicly, privately, po litically and personally, with complete indignation, all such schemes of inter ference and trickery which tend to lower the character of American people in their own eyes and in the eyes of all civilized men. Washington in his farewell ad dret-s to bis country men, speaking almost from the grave, said that morality should not be divorced from the Government of the Republic without its fall. 1 trust that no man who will joke at crime and en courage its commission for political results will be tolerated. If we worship an image let it be the image of Liberty. Take some such grand figure as the gen erous enthusiasm and proof of brother hood of the French artist who placed at the gate of this city and port the figure of Liberty Enlightening the World. Let us take this as the American people, Liberty Enlightening the World, and not take "Jim, the Penman." HOOSIERDOM. A Busy Time at Political Head quarters—Tlie Estimated Vote. Indianapolis, November 1. —General Harrison passed the day in his library at home receiving the usual number of visitors. Among his callers this after noon was D. L. Brown, of Kansas, who presented the General a mallet made from the stump of the Whig tree at Mount Tip, Athens county, September 25, 1840. On the 25th of September the citizens met to plant another Harrison pole on the identical spot where the remains of its predecessor were unearthed.
