F Marsh on the Vanderbilt district Orange, Fullerton and Anaheim aotes. Pomona— The coldest morning of the season News notes. A somewhat peculiar'development is the appearance of the signature of Sen ator John P. Jones, of Nevada, attached to a Populist address on the silver ques tion. Verily, the Republican party is disintegrating at a rare rate. Next! Having successfully brought down sil ver, President Cleveland is now going to try his hand on the ducks for a few days. It is safe to Bay that our respected president has made more political dead ducks in the past two or three months than any man in our history. Attorey General Olney haa issued instructions to the several district at torneys of tbe United Stateß, and amongst the rest to District Attorney Denis, of this district, and Garter, of San Francisco, directing them to discon tinue proceedings looking to deporta tion except in tbe cases of Chinamen who have been convicted of felony. These last are to be deported. Ail others are to be released. The Chinese Minister has called at the State Depart ment and assured Secretary Gresham that his government will use all its au thority to induce the Chinese to register. It is said that the Six Companies will do likewiße. We shall see what we shall see. A San Francisco newspaper Bays that the China and Japan steamers running out of that port are very poorly patron ised by the traveling public. The great bulk of tourißta and others who come to this continent by way of the orient take the Bteamera that connect with the northern routes. This is easily ex plained. With the single exception of the City of Peking, all the China steam ers sailing out of San Francisco are of the old type, and lees comfortable and luxurious than the Bteamera on the other routeß. A great many of the cabin-class passengera who go to Europe by the Red Sea route would come via San Francisco if they could get good steamship accommodations, for that route pasaes through a very disagreeable and unwholesome part of the world. Tbe heat of the Red Sea is almoßt un endurable, and is dreaded by all who make the voyage that way. If San Francisco wants to bold her own in ca tering to the travel from the orient, she must bring preßßure to bear on the Pa cific Mail company to put on a better class of steamers than it is now running. How if. it with with Governor Russell of Massachusetts? The contraat ia striking. Twice haa Governor Russell been elected, and each time the iaaue haa been on tbe reform of the tariff. The laboring classes of the Bay state have been deluded by Governor Russell and his theoretical coadjutors into the belief that their prosperity wae depend ent upon a readjustment of the tariff. Both of the former campaigns were marked with vigor and entbueiaem. But wbat a radical change has been presented this year.—, Express. The foregoing is taken from come edi torial vaticinations in tbe columns oi the Express, and it shows to what ex tent a newspaper pnndit can fall back upon a lively imagination. Governor Russell might be experiencing all the difficulties spoken of by onr esteemed contemporary if he were running for office this year. But he is not. He de clined a renomination for a third term, like tbe good Democrat that he is, so that the Express's airy fabric falls to the ground. It is true that a namesake of bis—and we believe a cousin—is the Democratic nominee for governor, bat that is a horse of another color. THE COMING ELECTIONS. The two elections which will attract I most attention next Tuesday are those |oi Ohio and Virginia. Looking at tbe question from the ordinary political standpoint, one might be justified in saying, offhand, that the Democrats 'rill carry the Mother of States and Statesmen and the Republicans her daughter across the river. But this is not an ordinary year, by any means, and the unexpected is liable to happen. The only thing that can be assumed with certainty is that if McKinley should manage to beat Seal he becomes from a possibility something like tbe Republican nominee for 189(1. Neal is making a gallant fight, principally on the tariff, and our sympathies go out to him because he is not only sound on that issue but on silver likewise. It is a pretty hard thing to induce the Buck eyes to go back on their own "Sweet William," and this makes Neal's fight an uphill one. If we are to trust the Mugwump and Republican papers and orators, the Democrats of New York have unnecessarily complicated their case by the nomination of Judge May nard to succeed himself on the Court of Appeals bench. But one can place no reliance on the declarations of these worthies. The man they abuse moßt is quite likely to be the best citi zen of the state; and, while he may not he strong with a dilettante, doctrinaire ciowd, be may stand remarkably well with the people. Senator David Ben nett Hill was a notable instance in point. While the Mugwumps will vote against Maynard it need surprise no one if he should get the largest vote of any one on the Democratic ticket. To a dis passionate, level-headed man tbe charge that a Judge of the Court of Appeals of a great state like New York would de liberately steal election returns seems I absurd, and when we find Mugwump and Republican journals indulging in Recusations of such a highly flavored character we are inclined, at this dis tance, to take them with a grain of salt. It will require a good deal of persuasion —aye, and proof—to induce us to be lieve that a Democratic State Conven tion would renominate a man for judge who was believed to have been guilty of a felony. Without venturing upon any opinion aa to how the elections will turn out, we think we are safe in advising our read ers to be prepared for surprises. If the returns shall show any material weak ening in the old parties the chances ot the formation of a third party will be greatly increased. HOW GREAT CITIES ARE MADE. The wires, a few days since, brought us word that Marshall Field, one of Chicago's rich men, had subscribed the stupendous sum of one million dollars towards a fund to establish a great mu seum out of the remains of tbe world's fair. Such a museum would become a great educational institution, and the opportunity to create one of immense Ecope and embracing an endless variety of objects would come when the exhibi tion closed. Such another opportunity never existed before for any city, and never would come again. But it re quired money, and a great deal oi it. to promptly take advantage of this unique chance. Had the rich men of Chicago, like the rich men of other cities, held back until they were dragooned or coaxed Into "coldly furnishing forth" unwilling donations, the opportunity wojld have passed and the grand mu eeum, which is now assured, would have merely been a memory oi a few iar-seeing spirits. The princely gift of Mr. Field wbb followed by large sub scriptions from many other public spirited citizens, and enough money is now on hand to secure one of the finest, if not the very finest, museums in the world. There is an object lesson in this for other cities. We need not no farther than to this incident to discover the true reason for Chicago's wonderful growth. She was a trading post in the midst of a quagmire when St. Louis was a great city. She is now, through the enterprise, liberality and public spirit of her citizens, the second city on the continent. She has no superior ad vantages of situation over a score of lake towns that are Btill villages. But she had men of energy, of determina tion, of forecast and of oneness of pur pose. "Anything to advance Chicago" was their motto, and whenever a point was to be made for their beloved city they set aside all trivial disputes and differences and worked unitedly to the gaining of that point. In making their city a great center of wealth they made themselves rich ; and as they accumu lated vaat fortunes they became more and more eager for the expansion of their city, and held their wealth sub ject to its advancement and greatness. Nearly all of our other great commer cial centers have grown of their own volition from the advantage of their sit uation and their necessity to tbe grow ing commerce oi the country. Chicago alone haa been made great by the men who cast their lot in with her deßtiny, and achieved her present enviable posi tion by their foresight, their energy and their local patriotism. Thirty years ago Chicago had infinitely less prospect of becoming a great commercial center than Los Angeles has now. She had none of the reaourcea or natural advan tages for growth and expansion that we have now. She had, oi course, a situa tion on the lake of importance, and was bo fortunate aa to be at a point where railroad systems to all parts of the couu LOS ANGELES HERALD, SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 5, 1893. try could co-operate with the maritime systems of the lakes. Los Angeles has the same advantage of being the point at which all the railroad systems com ing across the continent can reach the Pacific by the shortest and most econ omical route. She has also tbe key to the vast commerce of the Pacific Her back country and her soil resources are simply illimitable and matchless. All she wants is the right kind of push and liberality in her substantial citizens to make ber in much less than one genera tion the rival of any of tbe great citios of this continent. Altbongh we have not yet reached the era of immense fortunes in Los Angeles, we, nevertheless, are in the midst of as great opportunities as tbe Chicago people had three decades ago. We have yet to prove our right to the great growth and expansion which is surely ours, if tbe men of the present will pnt forth the energy, determination, and evince tbe public spirit that character ized the adolescent period of Chicago's history. We have a few rich men amongst us, though we have no Mar shall Fields or Potter Palmers in our midst. But if those who are blessed with large fortunes will use them in the way of contributing to our advancement, they will become still richer themselves and create here a great, opulent and prosperous city, of which the whole country will be proud. There is perhaps no other enterprise that will open at once to the business activities of Los Angeles a greater im petus than the completion ot the Nevada Southern railroad. That road will prove a powerful factor in our city's growth and advancement. To meet a transient difficulty in its construction, it comes to our people and asks them to take $80,000 worth of bonds, to be paid either in money or in coal at the rate of $5 per ton. This is the time for some of our citizens of wealth to emulate tbe public spirit of Marshall Field. THE SIMPLE FACT OF THE CASE. "Tbe mountain labored and a mouse was born." This line from tbe Latin classics describes, not inaptly, the work oi the extra session that has just closed. There is no question but that a great crisis in monetary affairs existed throughout the country a few months ago. Such was the stringency that Mr. Cleveland deemed it necessary to con vene coneress in extra session to con sider the situation. They met and were in session three whole months, then adjourned, but, in the name of all tbe gods at once, what has been accom plished to relieve the financial situa tion? They have relieved a hundred thousand Chinese laborers from the just penalty of a violation of our laws, but what has been done for the relief of the hundreds of thousands of Ameri can laborers who are starving for tbe want of work, owing solely to the mone7 stringency, which congress was called upon to consider. Not a thing ; not the least thine! On the contrary, they have endeavored to plunge the country into still deeper distress by stopping entirely | the coinage of silver, the tendency of which action, as any child can see, must be to make money still more scarce. Tbe fact is. Congress was called to gether at the dictation of Wall street, with the confident expectation that the great stringency in the money market, purposely brought upon the people, would compel the country to make further concessions to the money-chang ing plutocrats. Their purpose cropped out in John Sherman's bond scheme, which he prudently saw fit to defer to a more convenient season. Wall street accomplished the temporary demoneti zation of silver, it is true, but that «as only a part of their plan. They intended to control and enjoy the privilege of issuing the entire paper money circula tion of the country. This they will not now be permitted to do. The issuance of money is a function of the govern ment, and the people, when next they have a chance to vote, will Bee to it that the duty is properly and constitution ally performed. The money power, that expected to gain so much out of the panic and the extra session, have actually gained but little. By tbe bold and exceedingly able discussion of the silver men on tbe repeal measure, tbe eyes of the people have been opened and the planß of the plutocratß exposed. The extra session has been a slip-up for Mr. Cleveland and his Wall street friends in large part after all. Well may we Bay ot it: "Par turiunt montea, nascetur ridiculua mus." Ova former townsman, Major Ben C. Truman, fortunately for the historical features of the World's Columbian Ex position, wbb a member of the floricul tural department of that great show. As a consequence, that notable event has had a fitting historiographer. Our late townsman's work lies before us in the shape of a superb volume of nearly six hundred pages, in which the story oi the great exposition is told from A to Iz/.ard. The text is graphic and the il lustrations are of exceptional merit. We do not in this article propose to re view the book. We shall attend to that later. We eimply desire to felicilate the public on tbe fact that the ex position was fortunate in having Major Truman on hand to give the world a realistic sense ot the greatest event of its kind on record. The work is published by the Mammoth Publishing company of Philadelphia and Chicago, and it will doubtlsßß have a large sale. It ia characterized by the major's happy style and completeness of treatment. To those who were at the fair it will re vive agreeable memoriee. To thoaewho were not, it cannot fail to prove highly interesting. Once buried in this fasci nating narrative, or engaged in turning over the highly artietic illustrations, and it iB impossible to lay down the book. A great many persons will be compelled to rely for their impressions of this memorable event upon Major Truman's work, or some other work of a similar plan. It ought to have a large sale in California, and particularly in this portion of tbe state, where the j major's friends are legion. ] AFFAIRS IN THE FATHERLAND. Favorable Comment on the Late World's Fair. A Debate on Germany's Position in Europe. The New Financial Scheme of the Em pire—A Military Function at the Potsdam Barracks — A Prix* for a New Opera. Copyright, 1893, by the Associated Press. Berlin, Nov. 4. — Tbe close of the world's fair at Chicago has been made the occasion of a number of articles in tbe German press referring to tbe satis faction of tbe German exhibitors at the manner in which tbe affair was man aged. It is regarded as a foregone con clusion that it will have an immense influence over tbe German-American commercial relations in the future. There was a large gathering this morning at Potsdam barracks to witness the recruits of tbe Potsdam garrison take the oath of allegiance in tbe pres ence of the emperor and empress, who were accompanied by their eldest sons. Tbe function was purely a formal one. The sequel to another army scandal, embracing charges of brutality to pri vate soldiers, is the cashiering of Lien tenant Schrag-Muller of the Thirty ninth regiment of infantry, stationed at Dosßeldorf. At the instance of tbe prince regent of Bavaria the Royal opera bouse of Munich has offered a prize of 6000 marks for a new German opera. The Bavarian diet at Munich this afternoon discussed a motion to abolish tbe Bavarian legations at St. Petersburg and Paris. A debate on Germany's position in Europe followed, during which Deputy Raitzinger declared that but for tbe war on the German people in 186(1 the policy of blood pursued in 1870 might have been avoided, and in place of the present limited Germany, an empire compassing all the German race might have been created, with the Danube remaining a German river. In reoly the premier said Germany's posi tion as now allied to Austria was better than at any time since tbe nnion of the German races, Tbe Associated Press correspondent received from the finance ministry to night a copy of the bill embodying the new financial scheme of tbe empire and which will now be submitted to tbe bundesrath. The bill provides that the federal contributions to the imperial treasury, apart from the special sums payable by the individual states, shall be limited each year to a Bum at least 40.000.000 marks below tbe total pay ments to the states out of the imperial revenue from customs and from the to bacco, stamp, excise and spirit duties. In the event of a deficit in the ordinary imperial budget, the taxes on articles oi consumption may be increased. THE MATABELE WAR. No Le«i Than 3000 Killed and Wounded Up to Data.

A SULTAN'S PREROGATIVE. Be Can Violate the Lsvi of England Witt, Impunity. London, Nov. 4.—The action for breach of promise, involving heavy damages and the question of the possession of a diamond bracelet, brought against his highness, the sultan of Jobore, by Miss Jenny Migbell of Brighton, came up in court today. Application was made on behalf of the sultan for a stay of all pro ceedings on the ground that tbe court had no jurisdiction over him. Tbe jedges decided to allow the appeal of the sultan on the ground that he was an independent sovereign and did not come under the jurisdiction of the court. Grenniander Draskt the Record.
