To Democratic Voters.
Next Tuesday the National election
takes 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 east. These will be many bogtis
tickets in the field. Do not let yourself
be deceived. Cast the straight regular
Democratic ticket, and do not scratch it.
Election Returns.
The Herald will have a wire and
operator in its editorial rooms the night
of the election and subsequently, and
returns from all parts of the Union will
come directly to the office.
We shall be in constant receipt of
returns from the earliest moment after
the count has commenced ; and we have
arranged to display the results upon a
conspicuous canvas, lit up at night by a
reflecting electric light of great power.
The people of Los Angeles will thus be
given the returns as fast as they come in;
and will, indeed, taking the advantage
we have in the difference of time, know
results at the East three hours in advance
of their publication in that part of the
Voters Get Your Register Numbers.
Reports reach this office that at the
late Charter election in one precinct in
this city twenty-five voters lost their
votes, being told at the polls that they
were not on the Great Register. This
was in spite of the fact that they had
previously voted at other .elections since
the Great Register then in u-e had been
printed. At the election next Tuesday
similar tactics may be attempted. All
voters should be sure to consult the
Great Register at the polls before going
to vote. Let them get their register num
ber as well as their names, and thus make
sure of their votes. In getting a ballot
be sure you have the regular Democratic
-ticket, and vote it straight. If all our
men make sure to vote we will carry
this State for Cleveland and Thurman.
It is a well-known fact that there are
a great many Republican voters in this
city who are registered with the intention
of voting fraudulently. Some of these
are not entitled to vote because they
have not been in the State a year. In
many such cases the day of their arrival
in California is known and the proofs
beyond all question. These men are listed.
They will be not only challenged, but
they will be arrested whether they vote
or not. The attempt to cast a fraudulent
vote is a crime. The challengers will
do their duty, and the officers of the law
will do theirs. If these men attempt to
vote the jails will be pretty full on Tues
day night.
The San Francisco Bulletin heads an
article, "General Harrison's Last
Speech." It is well our contemporaries
in-the Republican ranks should know so
well how the case stands. We fully
thought they knew it, but did not think
they would acknowledge it at this prema
ture stage of the game. He has made his
last speech. He is in a political sense as
dead aa a door nail. He will not here
after be heard making a speech on the
tariff even to delegations of little girls,
•or writing non-teguilur letters to little
hoys who send him jack rabbits.
How San Francisco Will Go.
The claim of the Chronicle that Cali
fornia will give Harrison [and Morton
a plurality of sixteen thousand is hardly
worthy of a moment's consideration
Although the Examiner's claim that it
will give Cleveland and Thurman over
fifteen thousand plurality is more in the
line of probability, yet neither of the
estimates should be accepted. Blame's
majority in 1884 in San Francisco
was thirty-five hundred. Nobody be
lieves that Harrison has any
where near the strength in that
city that Blame had. Blame got
the Irish vote almost solid. Harrison
cannot look for a corporal's guard of it
Blame got the German vote. That vote
has, in the main, left the Bepublican
party and will go for Cleveland. The
Democratic party four years ago was
badly divided in consequence of the
action of the Stockton Convention. It is
now a unit. There are no antagonisms to
reconcile—no sores to heal. The tariff
issue, instead of carrying away votes from
the party has added to its strength. In
view of all these facte, we are satisfied
that San Francisco will not only remove
the plurality it gave to Blame four years
ago, but receive an additional strength
of at least three thousand votes from the
German and the anti-war-tariff.element.
No one who has given fair and
impartial attention to the drift of senti
ment in San Francisco puts Cleveland's
plurality under five thousand, and some
of the most acute observers place it as
high as eight thousand. With five thou
sand plurality in San Francisco Cleve
land will carry the State. With any
thing over that he will carry it hand
somely and beyond the peradventure of
a doubt. In the above we have laid
no stress upon the anti-Chinese senti
ment of San Francisco, which overrides
all party considerations amongst a very
large element. Under the circum
stances, an important vote that would
naturally go to the Republican party will
not go for its standard-bearer,
whose record is so vulnerable on that
burning question. It will go to the party
and to the man whose acts have given us'
a measure that has effectually closed our
ports to Chinese immigration. It is per
fectly safe to put down Cleveland's
plurality in the Bay City at between six
and eight thousand, and nobody would
be astonished if it reached ten thousand.
How to Repeal The Exclusion Act.
The Republicans of the East have per
sistently resisted the efforts of the Demo
crats to relieve the Pacific Coast from
the Chinese invasion. Whenever they
were forced by political exigencies
to pay heed to our demand they took
good care to give us legislation which
proved on trial insufficient to mitigate
the evil. The Restriction Act, as inter
preted by Republican United States
Judges, waß made a nullity. But when,
at last, the opportunity arrived, and the
Democratic party, through Cleveland,
gave us the Exclusion Act, we
got a piece of honest legisla
tion on the subject, which has success
fully closed our ports to the Chinese
hordes. Everybody knows that the
Republican sentiment at the East is op
posed to this measure, and no one doubts
that if Harrison should be elected and
his party can control Congress the law
will be repealed. In view of this un
doubted fact, the workingmen of Cali
fornia who have suffered from the inroad
of the Mongolian upon the labor field, and
who have clamored for years for national
legislation to arrest the evil, would not
only stultify themselves but proclaim to
the world that they were insin
cere in their opposition to the
Chinese if they should cast
their votes against the. party and the
President that have given them the Ex
clusion act. Especially would their in
sincerity be made apparent if for the
man who gave them the relief they now
enjoy they should vote for and
carry the State for the man whose
public record upon the Chinese
question has been persistently and con
sistently ia favor of their unrestricted
admission into the country and of their
naturalization after they had come here.
The San Francisco Report puts the ques
tion concisely in this way:
The point for the people of California
to keep in view next Tuesday is this : If
California gives its vote against Cleve
land, the anti Chinese candidate, and
for Harrison, the pro-Chinese can
didate, it can expect no more national
anti-Chinese legislation. The Chinese
question will then have been shelved
and shut out by the Californians them
selves. The Republican managers have
asserted that California does not consider
the Chinese a campaign issue. A vote
for Harrison would establish the truth of
this statement, which the RepoH believes
to be false. Let our citizens beware of
Mich a disaster as this would be.
There Las been received in this city a
bogus Democratic ticket of no little
significance. It comes from San Fran
cisco, and of course it will be woiked in
every precinct in the State. It is
rumored that it is backed by a heavy
sack. This ticket is regular in every
respect with the exception that the
names of Niles Searlesfor Chief Justice
and that of Jeremiah Sullivan for
Associate Justice of the Supreme Court
are replaced by the aam33 of the Re
publican nominees. The judiciary is of
all things the office which ought to
rise above party politics, yet,
strange to say, it is the very center at
which Republican corraptionists are
most likely to aim their poisoned arrows.
It is the fountain-head of justice, and if
it is corrupted, there can be nothing
pnre in the stream below. Here is
where the gilded hand should be
powerless to turn inexorable law away
from its ends and purposes; bat just
there is where plutocrats, monopolies
and all unpopular influences com
bine to render all law abortive,
and to deprive the poor ot even
the semblance of right before the trib
unals of a free land. Everywhere these
unrighteous influences which seek to
subvert the very intents for which this
Government was founded,and to trample
under foot the ripest fruits of Republican-
Democratic principles, unite their forces
for these very ends. The pliant tools of
a pliant party on whose unpopular prin
ciples all monopolies feed and fatten are
what these monopolies wish to see
wearing the ermine of the judge
in mockery of its whiteness, the emblem
of impartial justice. At this time the
effort will be made to defeat the ripest
lawyer, the ablest Chief Justice and the
most intrepid and incorruptible Associate
that ever might have sat on the bench of
this State. Lot this not be. Let no
voter be deceived in this matter. Let
all who wish thatsound learning in the
law and clear and fearless exposition of its
principles should illuminate our Supreme
bench, vote for Niles Searles, and Jere
miah Sullivan at the polls to-morrow.
Sanch'ine Republicans are claiming
Fresno county by a small majority. That
has been one of the banner, and indeed
the most reliable Democratic county in
the State. The Republicans claim that
the change has been brought about by
the influx of new voters, who are alleged
to come mostly from Republican States;
There has truly been a large increase of
voters in Fresno county ; but a careful
analysis fails to show that the political
complexion of the county is much
changed. There are six thousand eight
hundred and seventeen voters on the
(ireat Register, against three thousand
three hundred and thirty-eight votes cast
in ISSO and three thousand one hundred
and twelve in 1881. An exhaustive
analysis of the registered vote for to
morrow's election shows that about two
thousand of the electors come from States
positively Republican, and about one
thousand seven hundred of them from
States much more positively Democratic.
There are one thousand and seventy-one
voters natives of this State in the list.
Then there are one thousand one hun
dred and sixty of I hem that are of foreign
birth. One hundred and forty-five
of these latter citizens are Ger
mans and two hundred and sixty
of them are Irish. It does not
appear very plain where a Republican
majority is likely to come from in Buch
a list as that. Citizens comiug from
New Jersey, Connecticut, or Indiana
cannot from that fact be claimed by
either party. Those coming from
Michigan are nearly as likely to
be Democrats as Republicans.
In fact there are no Northern States
which any longer can claim an over-,
whelming Republican majority outside
of two or three commonwealths. Those
coming from the South, on the contrary,
are pretty nearly all of one way of think
ing. Fresno is pretty sure to give her
usual majority to the Democratic party.
At the end of June, 1885, four months
after Mr. Cleveland became President,
the total interest-bearing debt of the
United States was $1,2(10,774,462. On
the Ist of this month the corresponding
total was $980,0(33,172. The principal of
the interest-bearing debt has therefore
been reduced $280,711,290 during Cleve
land's Administration, taking no account
of the first four months, during which
there was probably over $20,000,000 re
duction. This is reduction of the princi
pal at the rate of $35,003,000 a year.
Since June, 1887, the amount of 4 and
4}4 per cent bonds outstanding has been
reduced $S2,0(i8,100, and the amount of 3
per cents outstanding has been reduced
$19,051 500, making a total decrease of
$101,119,000. Interest has been stopped all
this time on $00.5,000 more of 3 per cents
that have not yet been presented for re
demption. That is the record of a very
economic Administration. It has been
conducted on business principles, and
that is why, the people are for Grover
When at the Chicago Convention, editor
De Young of the Chronicle told the assem
bled hosts that Harrison could not carry
this State because of his awkward attitude
on the Chinese question. Last Friday
Mr. De Young counted his political chick
ens before they are hatched and gives the
State to Harrison by sixteen thousand
majority. All right, Mr. De Young.
Your readers "pays their money"
for your paper, and "takes their choice"

The fight in New Jersey will be hot.
There is not only the Presidential elec

and if Senator McPherson is succeeded

Democrat in Riddleberger's seat the Sen

President will have the casting vote.
With a Democrat to succeed McPherson

Rumors are rife to the effect that many

The same men are the standard
bearers of this campaign and represent
the same principles as then (in 1884),
except so far as President Cleveland has
given importance to the issue of tariff re
form, and as Mr. Blame has had the
genius to impose the false issue of pro
tection as one involving the interests of
the labor class, and entitled to the credit
of the national progress and the individ
ual prosperity which have accrued to
the country and its people since the con
clusion of the civil war. Both parties of
the country had for the last sixteen
years recognized the propriety and neces
sity of reducing the war tariff from the
figurei which war expenditures had made
necessary; both parties had recognized
in national conventions the policy of
modifying tariff taxation, relieving the
necessaries of life for the benefit of the
laboring poor, and continuing the tax
upon the luxuries consumed by the rich.
A Congressional commission from a Re
publican Congress had reported a tariff
bill reducing the tax 20 per cent. Henry

tariff. There is not a statesman,«?ena
tor or high official in the Republican
party nor in the Democratic party who
has not in his public speeches or official
utterances, since the war, recommended
a modification of the war tariff,and when
President Cleveland bad the courage to
take his party at their word and make it
a political issue, the Republican party
had the cowardice to turn tail upon all
its professions, to accept from Mr. Blame
a false issue, and insist that the Mills
bill was a free trade measure and the
Senate bill a measure of protection for the
benefit of American labor. It is a
false and fraudulent issue, leading
the two parties into ambus

representations to outwit the other.

rerrible Mine Explosion in
A Ladies' Seminary Destroyed by
Fire—Narrow Escape of the
: Associated Press DisDatcnes to the Herald I
Lock Haven, Pa., November 4.—There
was an explosion last night in (he Kettle
Creek Coal Company's mine, thirty
miles West of this city. The explosion
occurred in a new drift in which twenty
one persons were at work. As soon as
possible after the explosion the mine
was entered and fifteen dead bodies car
ried out. Four other men, badly injured,
were found, one of whom has since diea
and the others are likely to die. The
cause of the explosion is unknown, but
supposed to have been the striking off of
a fissure or pocket of gas. This after
noon the disfigured and naked body of a
miner was found fifty feet from the
mouth of the air shaft through which it
had been blown. The names of the
dead so far as learned are: Samuel Kil
linger, Park Donnelly, Michael Curran
and three Carlston brothers.
All but those named above were Hun
garians or Italians, whose names are not
furnished. A driver named Farrell was
entering the drift when the explosion oc
curred. He was thrown toward the
mouth and escaped. His mule was
killed. The force of the explosion was
shown in the fact that bodies were blown
clear of the mouth of the drift. Every
thing possible was done for the injured
by nine physicians. The bodies of the
dead were taken charge of by an under
taker and prepared for interment. The
coroner of the county was notified and
will hold an inquest to-morrow. The
mine inspector of the district was also
summoned. Although it occurred before
dark, yet it was not given out by the
officials of the company until to-day,
they having been advised of it late at
night. It is thought in making a drill a
gas feeder was struck, filling the cham
ber with gas, which, coming in contact
with a naked lamp, produced the ex
plosion. A "gas feeder" is a pocket of
gas imbedded in coal. The superintend
ent says the accident could not have
been foreseen, and no blame is attached
to any one.
was it dynamite?
Philadelphia, November 4.—A special
to the Press from Williamsport says: It
is rumored that the direct cause of the
explosion was the inexperienced use of
dynamite. In conversation with one of
the drivers who escaped it is learned
that an Italian had gotten 100 sticks of
dynamite from the store-keeper in the
morning and had gotten 100 caps and re
turned after fuse, but as there was none
in stock, it is supposed he tried to set it
off iv some other way, thus causing the
explosion. In the blacksmith shop near
tho scene of the disaster lays the charred
and unrecognizable remains of Augusta
Pierson, who was blown out through the
air shaft, fifty feet in the air, and some
of his clothes can be seen hangiug to the
limbs of a large tree near by. Next to
him is Mike Curran, who was blown
200 feet out of the mine, and was found
dead in a ditch, still clinging to the
handle of his shovel. He leaves a wife
and seven small children. Beside him
lay P. F. Donnelly, who was also blown
out of the mouth of the mine. Donnelly
leaves a wife and four children.
John Farrell, a mule driver, tells this
story: I was beside a car, pushing it,
and in sticking up my head saw a flash.
I immediately dropped to the ground,
and moved as quickly as possible towards
the mouth of the drift and escaped tin
hurt. My mule and a Stffede miner,
alongside of the animal, were killed in
stantly. I felt but little tho effect of the
explosion, and its force must have been
all above me, although all the timbers at
the mouth of the shaft were carried out
200 feet beyond the mouth of the drift.

from Godfrey, 111., says: The Monticello
Ladies' Seminary caught fire at 1 o'clock
this morning and by daylight was de
stroyed. Miss Haßkell, the principal,
aroused all the pupils, ordered them to
secure what effects they could and es
cape. All got out without injury, though
many failed to properly clothe them
selves in the haste of their escape. Of
all the property cf the school only a
piano and three organs were saved. The
loss aggregates $150,000; insurance, $75,

clothing, jewelry, etc., is not included in
this estimate. The pupils are being

Harrison May Go to the Senate If
Defeated for the Presidency.
Through letters that have come to the
members of the Democratic State Com
mittee it is evident that the fight of Re
publicans for supremacy in this State,,
says an Indianapolis dispatch to the Cin
cinnati Enquirer, was begun before the
State election of 1886, in which the result
was so disastrous to the Democrats. The
letters referred to were written by Gen
eral Harrison himself and their burden
was in effect that protection must win.
In all the letters there are expressions of
the most equivocal sorts, such as,
"Should we be successful this time we
will do more good than you may imag
ine. We are fighting, not for the election
alone, but for the future."
In that election there was a great deal
of money spent by the Republican State
Committee. It was a matter of much
surprise to the Democratic leaders at the
time as to where the money came from.
Developments cleared up the mystery,
however. It was found that the money
spent had been contributed by repre
sentatives of the tin interests, who met
in Philadelphia during the month of
October, 1886. The tin interests are the
most highly protected of any in the
country. Their object was to secure In
diana and Michigan, which even at that
early day were considered necessary to
11A bountiful amount of money was sub
scribed and expended by agents at that
time, with the intention of making a
showing that would have its effect in the
coming election. Of course at that time
General Harrison had no idea of being
the Republican candidate for President.
His was a fight for United States Sena
tor, and from recent developments, I
mean as to the nomination of Republi
can candidates for the State Senate more
particularly, the General has not even
during the present contest overlooked
his desire to represent Indiana in the
United States Senate. It is well known
that men have been placed in nomina
tion as State Senators all over the State
whose chief recommendation is that they
were friendly to General Harrison and
would vote for him against any other
person were he a candidate before the
Legislature for the Senate.
John C. New of Indianapolis, Boss
Shepherd and ex-Governor Routt of Col
orado were Bitting in the rotunda of the
Windsor Hotel discussing the prospects
of electing General Harrison, when in
walked Fine Earnest, a millionaire cattle,
man and something of a politician. He
was introduced to New by Governor
Routt, and the conversation soon led to
politics. New, not knowing tne political
training of Earnest, made some rash
statements about Harrison's election be
ing a "sure thing," when Earnest, look
ing New srparely in the eye for a mo
ment, said: "I'll bet you $25,000 in gold
that Cleveland is elected, and will walk
across the street with you and deposit
the money in the Colorado National
Bank." New made some excuse about
his purse or ban king-book being left in
Indianapolis, and the party hurriedly
broke up, the Indianian going directly to
his room, where he remained daring the
entire evening.—[N. Y. World.
