Mistery of a Wonderful Newspaper
On the 10th inst. a very extraordinary
event took place in the city of New York,
being no less than the laying of the cor
ner stone of the World's new sixteen
story building, which will stand on the
site of the old and famous French's
hotel. Few events have ever called to
gether a more distinguished audience,
ex-President Cleveland, Governor Hill,
Chauncey M. Depew, and a multitude of
the most famous men of the day, from
all lines of life, being pre-ent. And it
was certainly a thing worthy of the
attendance of the wisest and the wittiest,
the gravest and the gayest—this
laying of the corner stone of a building
from which will be issued a journal
which embodies in its history the great
est success in the whole history of jour
nalism. Many bright and brilliant
things were said by Hill, Depew and
others, and the ceremonial went off with
all proper eclat.
The success of the World is utterly
without precedent. Beginning with a
trifling circulation, under the consum
mate newspaper genius of Pulitzer it has
been run up, since ISB3, to a circulation
which averaged 342,200 copies daily dur
ing the past six months.
This is said to be one-seventeenth part
of all the daily issues of all tbe news
paper presses in the country. This
triumph, utterly without a parallel in the
annals of the journalism of the world, was
achieved by s man who went to New
York from St. Louis a perfect stranger,
and was not afraid to challenge victory
in an arena in which so many had failed.
We believe Mr. Pulitzer began bis
journalistic career in St. Louis by acting
as the private Secretary of Mr. Carl
Schurz, when that gentleman was editor
of the Wettliche Pott. Like that famous
man himself, be was a foreigner, and he
quite rivaled his patron in the ease with
which he acquired a masterly acquaint
ance witb the English language. He
quickly drifted away from Schurz, and,
indeed became quite antagonistic
to that gentleman. His first
journalistic exploit was the purchase of a
defunct German newspaper at a Sheriff's
sale in St. Louis. He had no competitors
for a thing which was regarded as dear at
nothing, but his keen intelligence had
taken note of the fact that the dead Ger
man daily possessed an asset which might
be made of value some day, viz.,a franchise
of the Associated Press. Pulitzer locked
this np and bided his time.
Shortly after this a clique, at the head
of whom was McCullagh, started the
Glut* in opposition to the Demo-
eral, which represented a certain wing of
the Republican party that had powerful
enemies in that organization. Notwith
standing the vigor and ability of the new
journal, it was powerfully handicapped
because it could not get into the Associ
ated Press. No matter how much money
was offered, and the offers ran up to an
enormous sum, the Associated Press
journals held the fort, and the Globe was
obliged to stay outside of the charmed
It was just here that Mr. Joseph
Pulitzer's thoughtful little purchase came
in. He had bought with far more than
the wisdom of Toodles, and when the
auspicious time arrived he was ready to
produce his doorplate, with Thompson
spelled with a P on it in fine relief; and
he sold the little German plant, which
he had bought for a few hundreds of
dollars, to the Globe, and is said to have
pocketed thereby a sum variously stated
at from $60,000 to $100,000.
It is impossible to hold down a man
like that. With the money obtained by
the sale of the press franchise, Pulitzer
started an evening newspaper, the Post-
Dispatch, which he placed under the
supervision of Col. Cockerill, and which
gradually made its footing good, and be
came a journal of note and value.
Having perfectly established the Post-
Dispatch —we have not attempted to al
lude to the circumstances attending the
amalgamation of those two journals—
Mr. Pulitzer looked around for new
fields to conquer, and he went on to New
York. A man of his calibre is always
sure to be backed by friends, and he
risked the purchase of the World, which
Mr. Manton Marble, who had married a
rich widow, was allowing to run down at
the heels. The change of ownership was
signalized by newspaper tactics as bril
liant as those employed by the first Na
poleon on the ensanguined fields of Ma
rengo and Austerlitz.
When Mr. Pulitzer acquired the World
he took on with him to New York, Col.
Cockerill, who had been editor of the
Pott Vitpatch, and who had been so un
fortunate as, in resisting a murderous as
sault made upon him in his own office,
to kill his assailant. The World is run
on the principle of giving all the news in
crisp and readable shape, is strongly
Democratic in the tenor of its editorial
articles, which are never of nndue
length; and, if it is not free trade in prin
ciple, it is so strongly devoted to a reduc
tion of the onerous Republican war tariff
as to seem to many persons to be so. It
has of course made its owner a colossal
Snowing the Silver Lining.
There has been, on all hands, a re
markable growth of faith in silver lately.
People begin to see and admit that it haa
not been fairly treated by the advocates
of the National Banks. These latter
nave said—mainly in the East—that ail
THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: FRIDAY MOHHIKG, OCTOBER 18, 1889.
ver coinage would debase the money of
the country, and many there are who
honestly feared it.
What are the facts? The bank circu
lation has constantly shrunk, and the
circulation of silver has constantly in
creased, until only about five millions of
dollars in silver coin are in the Treasury
vaults today. Indeed, but for this repre
sentation the business of the country
could not be done. The Boston Herald
chides its New England contemporaries
for still advising against the authorized
monthly coinage, and says there can be
nothing to fear from it. It is absorbed,
readily and gladly taken everywhere.
And now comes a still newer and more
noteworthy conversion. Mr. Wm. P.
St. John, President of one of the largest
New York banks, is out in behalf of a
proposition for the Government to invest
no less than $2,000,000 monthly in silver
bullion, so long as the Secretary of the
Treasury shall not pay over 99.H
--cents for every dollar's worth of coined
money, and to cancel legal tender notes
as fast as the silver coinage can take
their place. He says that if the country
can maintain $300,000,000 of paper
that has no intrinsic value, and
keep it on a par with gold, it oould easily
maintain a much larger amount of nil ver,
and his conviction is that such a substi
tution would have the effect of bo in
creasing the price of silver that it would
be brought practically to the old ratie
with gold all over the world.
This is a noteworthy sign of the times,
tbat such a financier from the old hard
money centre should take so pronounced
and advanced ground. He recognizes
not only tho political power of the silver
men tbat must be recognized in Con
gress, but he admits the substantial jus
tice of their cause.
What gives money its value ? Surely
it is the Government that is behind it—
tbe authority of powerful laws. The
"Trade" dollar is only worth seventy
two cents, and yet it contains 420 grains
of silver, while the"Bland" dollar is worth
a hundred cents though it contains only
412 U grains. What makes the difference ?
One has a Government behind it, and
the other had not. The truth is there
has been an artificial and groundless ac
cusation against silver and its advocates
who are not less sound and sensible
men than the bankers who have
had very nearly a monopoly of what
has always been considered the
safest business in the world —being
done at low rates and yet paying
them the highest profits known to
And not only are the advocates of
liberal coinage of silver sound and safe
men as individuals, but the communities
they represent are sturdy and conserva
tive. In the great money centre of New
York the bank reserves average 27 per
cent., only 2 per cent above the legal re
quirement. In San Francisco the reserve
is 38 per cent.—thirteen per cent, above
the requirement. There is as much sound
ness in banking and currency in this
new West as in the old East, and there
have been fewer bank failures here than
tii re, despite the many booms that have
speut themselves lately this side the
mountains. Tbe American people love
fair play for their products, and they are
soon to have it for their silver, which has
been grossly disparaged for so many
In the death of Gen. John P. llart
ranft at Norristown, yesterday, there
passed away a man who came very near
being in Hayes's shoes in 1876. He had
a strong hold ou the soldier vote
throughout the United Sates, and a con
siderable membership of the National
Republican Convention desired to nomi
nate him for President, and would have
done so if Simon Cameron had not
blocked tha way. Unable to be Presi
dent himself, that powerful politician was
determined that no other Pennsylvanian
should attain the coveted prize, and he
caused the Pennsylvania delegation to
be so manipulated as to nominate Hayes.
The deceased thus happily escaped being
a fraudulent President. He was twice
elected Governor of Pennsylvania, had
been Adjutant-General of the State, had
carried himself gallantly during the war,
and was a sort of Foraker, with the let
ter's brag and bluster left out.
He was entrusted, in his military
capacity, with carrying out the immedi
ate arrangements relating to the execu
tion of Mrs. Surratt, Gen. Winfield Scott
Hancock being in chief command in
Washington City at the time. If there
was little of tha demagogue there was
nothing of the statesman about Hartranf t,
and he was the central figure of a very
corrupt crowd, although personally he
was not generally looked upon as venal
or corrupt. Hia death leaves no void, in
Pennsylvania political circles, the whole
power of the Republican party in the
Keystone State having passed absolutely
into the hands of Matthew Stanley Quay
and his vote-buying Wanamakers.
We were shown a package of white
Smyrna figs yesterday, from the Mjnte
Vista ranch of Mr. Barclay, that showed
that the fruit grown in Los Angeles
county will compare quite favorably
with anything ever imported into this
country from Smyrna. As figs are ex
ceedingly profitable and prolific, yielding
freely the third year, why do not some of
the lazy fellows who lie croaking around
the country start in to raising them, and
assuring tremselves a competency in the
near future? If raising barley alone
won't pay, it will pay well in combination
with hogs, poultry, figs, oranges, and a
hundred other of the choice products of
In a communication addressed to
Major E. W. Jones, Fresident of the L? 3
Angeles Chamber of Commerce, Abbott
Kinney, Esq., has some sensible sug
gestions concerning a deep water harbor
and the way our people can bring it
about. San Pedro has undoubtedly been
greatly neglected of late, and there is
danger that this neglect may be continued
Fortunately natnre has been at work
for ns, and the original calculations of
the engineers have been confirmed, the
action of the tides in deepening and
widening the channel and bar having kept
up while the Government slept. The
telegram saying that San Pedro has been
left ont of the estimates may be in error,
and we are inclined to think it is,
bnt it will not hurt the enterprise to
show that we take some interest
in its progress. Our principal
reliance for Congressional aid must be
on Senators Stanford and Hearst, who
have repeatedly expressed themselves
favorable to handsome appropriations for
San Pedro, and upon ourselves. Cer
tainly no one has ever heard that Gen.
Vandever has ever shown any real in
terest in our harbor, and to trust to him
would be to lean upon a breken reed. By
all means let us be up and doing.

AN ENGINEER OF NERVE.
Hi* Remarkable Adventure and
v hat It Brought Htm.
In the smoking-car, along with half a
dozen others of us, was an engineer who
was going down to Peoria, and after a
time the Judge started to draw him on:
"I presume you have bad your share
of close shaves, along with other engin
"I have Bir," was the reply.
"Been in many smash-ups?"
"A dozen, I guess."
"Any particular adventure that might
be called wonderful?"
"Why, yes; I did have one," replied
the man, after relighting his old cigar
stump. "I didn't think it any great
sbave myself, but the l>oys cracked it up
as something extra."
"Let us hear about it," said the Judge,
as be passed him a Havana.
"Well, one day about three years ago
I was coming West with the lightning
expross aud was running to make up lost
time. Dov n here about twenty miles
two roads cross, .is you will see, and
thsre are a lot of switches and side
tracks. I had just whistled for the
crossing and put on the brakes, whon
the coupling between the tender and
baggage car broke."
"I see, 1 see," murmured the Judge.
"At the sarno moment something went
wrong with old No. 40, and I could not
shut off (steam. She sprang away like a
flash, and as she struck the crossing she
left the trees and entered a rnuadow
filled with stumps."
"Good heavens I"
"She kept a straight course for about
forty rods, smashing the stumps every
second, and then leaped a ditch, struck
the rails of the I), and R. road, and after
a wobble or] two settled down and ran
for two miles."
"Amazing! Amazing 1"
"Then, at a crossing, she left the
metals, entered a cornfield, and bearing
to the right, plowed her way across the
country until she came to our own
again. She had a long jump to makt.
over a marsh, but she made it, struck the
rails, and then away she wer.t."
"I was now behind my train, and aftei
a run of two miles, I got control of tbe
engine, ran up and coupled to the palace
car, and went into Ashton pushing the
train ahead of me."
"Griat Scott! And was no one hurt?"
"Not a soul, and not a thing broken.
The Superintendent played a mean trick
on me, though?"
"Why, the farmer who owned the
meadow paid the company $18 for the
stumps I had knocked out for him, while
the cornfield man charged $9 for damages'.
The Suoerintendent pockated the bal

"The scoundrel! And how much are
you paid a month?"

Louisville, Ky., October 17. —In con
cluding his address tonight at the
National Board of Trade, Henry
Watterson referred to "that Eldorado,
the New South," at length. Speaking
of the richness of the fields to be opened
up there, he added: "But what is the
value of all this if we have not order and
law, regulated by an intelligent and re
sponsible Government? How shall it
profit you, or us or anybody if it be not
brought under the spell of that wizard's
wand which we call civilization ? And
to whom shall this wand be committed ?
To the Anglo-Saxon, with centuries of
enlightened freedom behind him, or to
the African just emerged from slavery ?
"No one can comprehend the meaning
of this great menace to the prosperity of
the South who has not been there—who
does not live there. Nor is it possible
for it to be treated with wis
dom by any other than local
agencies. Cannot the thinking people cf
the North imagine, if they are unable to
see this —can they not feel that they may
trust the intelligence, humanity, Christi
anity of the South, and the testimony of
truly responsible Northern men who have
gone South to deal with the disease
which outside pressure has always ag
gravated and will always aggravate?
"I struggled earnestly and long to es
tablish the black man and his rights
under the Constitution and its amend
ments. But I am filled with no vain
illusions, born of sympathy and igno
rance. I am blind to none of the
dangers that lurk amid tbe shadows
of this great cross which for some mys
terious purpose—l know not what—has
been put upon the Icuth, but which I do
know the South alone can break, as the
South alone has borne it."

London, October 17. —The announce
ment that German and Austrian bankers
have finally made a loan to Bulgaria,
which that government has been vainly
seeking to negotiate for over a year, is a
piece of information the political im
psrtance of which can scarcely be over
estimated, when it is known that these
baukers had repeatedly refused to make
the loan on the advice of Prince Bis
marck himself, who pointed out as the
sole objection that no European power
had as yet recognized the existing govern
ment in Bulgaria. The fact that the money
is ready to be drawn upon within twenty
four hours after Bismarck's conference
on the subject of Bulgaria with the Czar,
is accepted in Berlin, as well as here, as
a proof that a distinct understanding was
reached which assured the permanency
of Prince Ferdinand's rule over his little

Paris, October 17.—The Temps, in a
resume of the financial results of the Ex

Referring to the proposed World's

it is by no means as certain as it seemed
a month ago that the Americans will
select New York for the location of their
Exposition, as Chicago is making strenu
ous efforts to secure it.
Commenting on the availability of
Chicago as compared with New York,
the Temps says: We wonder how many
Chicagoans who crossed the ocean to
visit the Exposition in the first city of
France would have taken the same
trouble if the show had been held in
Lyons, our second city of importance.
