What the "Herald's" Cor
respondents Think.
Tariff Reform Defended, and Repub
lican Falsehoods and False
Issues Laid Bare,
On the edge of the battle a lot ol "voters
take a shy at the Republican false posi
tion, and at the Democratic truth in the
following letters:
Seme Nats to Crack.
Editors Herald—l have seen so much
in the Republican papers recently about
Vrotection benefiting the laboring man
that I cannot resist the temptation of
asking a few questions through your
worthy journal. lam a Republican as
far as principles are concerned, but can
not see the justice of taking every article
necessary to one's comfort to fill the cof
fers of a few. They say protection keeps
up wages. Statistics prove that wages are
higher in England than any other country
in Europe, or Australia, according to the
cost of living. Well then, why is it that
in England wages are greater than in Italy
France, Germany or Austria, and' those
countries are highly protected. How
can we reconcile these truths with the
theory that protection keeps up the
wages. People then ask if the above be
true why are people in this county better
off, financially, than those in England.
That question is easily answered. When
America is as old as England,
when the former is as thickly
settled us the latter; when real estate
transfers are as cumbersome and ex
pensive here as there; when all the
great tracts of land are owned by a few
here, like there; and when we have a
vast army and navy to house, clothe and
feed, like England, it seems to me the
laborers of this country would be as poor
as those of England. This much is very
evident. Those who preach protection
the loudest are the ones who try to re
ceive their labor the cheapest. For in
stances, one of the papers of our city
every day, in a double-leaded editorial,
cries" out: "My dear, beloved downtrod
den workingmen, unless you vote for pro
tection you will be compelled to work for
nothing next year, and England will
reign supreme over your glorious land,"
and to-morrow if that same journal could
employ men to work for less than the
regular wages, without affecting their
subscription list they wonld do so.
China is a highly protected country.
She has built a colossal wall around her
Empire to protect herself, and foreign
shins cannot unload their cargoes at cer
tain points unless at the mouth of a
cannon, and what are wages there?
Eight to fifteen cents a day.
Any money taken from the people as a
tax for private uses is nothing less than a
robbery according to law.
W. C. Wolfe.
The Triumph of Democracy Is the
True Emancipation of Labor.
The Republican press have good cause
of denouncement of the Tammany ora-
tor. He. conspicuously among their
Democratic opponents, is gifted with the
genius of attack, whose resulting success,
in exposure of Republican fallacies,
sophistries and political fraud, is only
equaled by the gracefulness with
which the work is done. Under
the penetrating light of his logical
analysis of tbe Republican theory of Gov
ernment, the shams and hypocrisies of
the war tariff school of political economy
and of the assumed "protection" which
war taxes afford to the American wage
worker, are laid bare and broadly open
to the laughter and ridicule of the gen
eral public. Seen through the calcium
radiance of the Grady presentation of
the facts of the case, the Republican
orators, as evolved and developed out of
and by the present campaign, present an
amusingly grotesque series of political
profiles. They are detected and depicted
in the very act of attempting to grossly
deceive and mislead the people, to falsify
the record, even where that record bas
been made by acknowledged Republican
chiefs and leaders, and to stigmatize to
day as treasonable that which yesterday
they swore was loyal and patriotic.
Mr. Grady illustrates in his speeches
the force and persuasive power of truth.
"Tell the truth" is the only legend which
the Democratic party needs in this cam
paign to symbolize and emblazon its way
to victory in November. But Grady
"tells the truth," with tbe charm and
rhythm of such inimitable drollery that
tbe people "hold their sides" with laugh
ter, while viewing his contrasting car
toons of Republicanism of 1882,1884 and
1888, and of the desperate but vain at
tempt of the Republican party to appear
to be that which it is not. In his atti
tude of defence of tbe manhood and in
telligence of American citizens of Irish
extraction grossly and gratuitously in
sulted, as they and the whole Irish race
repeatedly are being insulted by the pal
try tricks and traps Bet by Republicans to
catch the supposed political sensibilities
of Irish-Americans towards Great Britain,
Mr. Grady administered to the whole
Republican party a merited rebuke.
Every American citizen claiming affinity
with'the Irish race should thank Mr.
Grady for placing the dignity of Ameri
can citizenship, no matter whence its
extraction, on the just and high ground
of equal devotion to American institu
tions and of equal hostility to all men
and measures inimical to American in
stitutions—a position clearly defined by
the history of Irish-American citi
zens since the foundations of our
country were laid. Stupid in
deed to the teachings of that history
must be the party which hopes by such
Billy, transparent and contemptible
frauds as that of the Pomona Murchison
letter to the British Minister at Wash
ington to influence, for this or that can
didate, the Irish-American vote. Sucb
* detestable political ruse is not
only dishonorable to the party
that resorts to it, but is a
mortal insult to tbe class of citizens
it ia deliberately intended to fool. And
this truth, if not already apparent to the
Republican party, will assert itself with
tremendous emphasis on Tuesday next
at the ballot box. To the honest
worker in every industrial avoca
tion Mr. Grady illustrated by the
truths of history by plain, simple
statistics and Legislature enactments
facts, that only real true and solid pro
tection which the American toiler ever
had, or which be now enjoys, came to
him by and through the Democratic
party. He showed how strong the iron
hand of bounty-favored-capital was slill
npon the throat of labor, tbat hand de
riving its main strength from the legisla
tion of the Republican party, and held
forth and clearly exposed tlie well
grounded doctrine that in the permanent
triumph of the Democratic party
was to be found the poor man's safety,
the abolition of the slavery instituted by
highly protected millionaire manufac
turers, the sweeping away of t_S egres
sion of trusts and combines, and the
final ace. mp' shm >nt of the true emn'.ci
pation of American labor.

Tne Murcblsou Fraud.
Editors Hkrald—There are many
comments of the press and otherwise
upon the law and dastardly trick of the
writer of tbe "Murchison" letter, and
but few- of them characterize the "cur"
with the scorn and contempt he merits.
In all the history of tricks to make
political capital, this is the last and
dirtiest. The dog not so much obeys the
whistle of his master as this fellow bas
ran on ihe scent of his game. He runs a
muck like the South Sea islander upon
his own weapon, for the sake of dirty
notoriety and to cnbserde his masters,
who, in the end, will kick him for bis
dirty work. And the great "statesman,"
Mr. Blame, receives the letter of reply
of the British Ambassador and holds it
up to a crowd upon a public occasion.
And for what purpose does this distin
guished candidate for President produce
thjs reply? For the purpose of degrading
a representative of the English Govern
ment to the United States, and for the
further purpose of making political capi
tal at the last hour while the Republican
party is in extremis.
This "great statesman" should have
seen at once, that the open notorious
fraud committed by the contemptible
vampire, for the object of making politi
cal capital, will ultimately "return to
plague the inventors."
When the American people have had
time to reflect upon this thing in all its
fraudulent bearings, let the election go
which way it may, then the reaction will
come as surely as the morrow, and the
dastardly coup which may result in bring
ing Democratic and Republican institu
tions to be a stench in the nostrils of tho
world, will end in a Republican "boom
erang." J. D.
Garvanza, November 2d, 1888.

to All.
Tbe First street paving matter is con

Complaints in the following actions

Complaint alleges that tbe promise to
marry was made Agugust 24th and was
to be fulfilled October 24th, and in
anticipation of this event plaintiff lived
with defendant as his mistress, and
when she reminded him of his promise
on the 20th day of October, he declared
that he would not marry her, but aban
doned her, and at the time of the filing
of this complaint the promise still re
mained unfulfilled; wherefore the com
plainant feels damaged in the sum of
M. Augustine vs. M. T. Whittaker,
Joseph Simons, J. F. Crank, S. P. Jewett
and the California Central Railway Com
pany —This is another of a series of suits
recently begun against M. T. Whittaker
and some of the co-defendants on account
of various complications growing out of
a contract to convey certain realty in the
Rancho San Pascual. The property in
this case is 7.85 acres, with water rights,
etc., adjoining the Oak Knoll property at
Pasadena, and was conveyed by plaintiff
to defendant Whittaker for certain con
siderations, all of which have not been
met, and plaintiff therefore asks judg
ment against defendant Whittaker for
tbe sum now due, and, in case of non
compliance, full restitution of premises.
The other defendants, being believed to
have or claim certain secret interests
in the transaction, are asked to
show cause or be enjoined from
interfering with plaintiff's recourse.
Defendant Simons having started and
operated a brick yard on the premises in
question, petition is made to restrain him
from moving any of the brick now in the

settlement for such as have already been
removed. Tbe appointment of a receiver
is also prayed for.
