Italy shows a picture which is not a
pleasing one for the average humanita
rian to contemplate. The recent riots
in Sicily are evidently the outgrowth of
bad government ingeneral and excessive
taxation in particular. So long ac Italy
remains a portion of the triple alliance
there is very little hope for an allevia
tion of tbe load of debt and taxation !
which tbat province must bear. The
Italian army and navy are out of all pro
portion to the productive power of tbe
Italian working people.
Backed up aa they are by a large con
stituency of millionairee, it ia not to be
wondered at that tbe congressmen from
the Atlantic seaboard ehould be almoat
unanimously opposed to a renewal of the
income tax which prevailed during "tbe
late unpleaeantnese." Yet their oppo
eition doee not necessarily imply that
the proposition ia an unjnst or dishonest
one. Tbe only reaaon why such a tax
should exist ia tbat there ia a great deal
of property in New York, Boston and
other Atlantic cities, tbe increment of
which ia squandered in riotous living in
London, Parie and other European capi
tals by Americans wbo have forgotten
that tbey ever had a country of their
own.
One of the London telegrams to the
Aasociated Fresa, in speaking of the
prince of Wales, says that he is loaded
down with debt, owing to hia lack of
■ncceaa on the British turf; and goes on
to aay that the winninge of hia etablea
thia laat year were lesa than £400. Ad
mitting that they were, there is no law
that compele'Tomrny" to baton hia own
horses. Richard Ten Broeck won over
$1,000,000 in twelve years but won very
little on hie own horses, notwithstand
ing that they were alwaya "out for the
money." Tbe great trouble with the
prince of Wales ia that he wanta to win
tbe Darby, you know, which ia not al
waya co easy an achievement. The old
marquis of Exeter started a horse for it >
in 36 yeara out of 39 and never won at
all, although he won the St. Leger twice
during tbe same period. The tronble
with come men is that they want to win
great races without knowing anything
about horses; and that's what's the
matter with H. R. H. Albert Edward.

The Pullman and Wagner shops, since
the completion of their exhibition trains
at the world's fair, have bean running
aimoet entirely on repairs, and, as money
was very scarce even for that purpose,
have been run with greatly reduced
lorcee. The following shows the falling

parties:

six companies which have had their

companies in the northwest which boild

panies above referred to do not build
passenger eQMhes, hut coDtine them
selves entirely to freigbt cats. In 1893
ttiey built 4417 freight cars. Perhaps ]
! some of tbe falling off in passenger car
i building is attributable to the fact that
| many cars intended for exhibition at tbe
i world's fair were completed in Novem

NOT WITHOUT A PRECEDENT.
It the United States should decide
upon annexation of tbe Saudwich isl
ands, there' would be ample precedent
for it; and that, too, on the part of Eng
i land, the moat acquisitive of all tbe
| great European powers. Tbere have
i been reasons, however, why tbe acqni
; sition of the Sandwich islands was
I deemed undesirable to England, aud,
! perhaps, some of these selfsame objec
tions might apply nearly as well to tho
1 United States. England could have
[ grabbed these islands filty-two years
j ago, had she so desired, but ebe cvi
' dently preferred to let the dusky island
i era pay their own expenses of govern
! ment and catch all their trade for man
ufactured goods, without putting the
salaries of colonial governors and judges
upon the debit side of tbe ledger.
Some time in 1842, Lord George Pow
lett, father of the famous turfman who
came so near carrying off the honors of
1800 with The Promised Land, was in
command of tbe Australian squadron of
her majesty's navy, the cruising grounds
of which were limited to the Hawaiian
group on the east. He tonk possession
of the ieland of Oabu and hoisted tbe
British flag as evidence of his seizure of
the entire group. It is claimed that cer
tain dissatisfied subjects of Kame
bameha 111 invited the attack, but on
this subject history is not altogether
clear. Certain it is that Powlett called
on ICameh imeha 111 and demanded the
cession of the islands in tbe name of tbe
queen, at the same time threatening to
bombard Honolulu (tben an American
refitting station for tbe arctic whaling j
Meet , in tbe event of a refusal.
Kamebameha was not co much vi a
fighter as Lord Powlett, but be was a
good deal more of a diplomatist. He at
once acceded to tbe British admiral's
demands and at the same time issued a
proclamation tbat wae a curiosity as a
state document. At the same time he
dispatched a messenger to California
with orders to make the best of hie way
I across the country to Vera Cruz aud
j thence to England. Lord Powlett had,
cf course, dispatched his own courier to
England by the same ronte, but they
traveled all the way from Honolulu to
Vera Cruz before Powlett'e courier sus
pected tbe errand of James Marehall,
who was the messenger of King Kame
bameha. On his arrival in London
Marshall obtained a hearing from Lord
Aberdeen, then prime minister, nearly
as soon as did Lieutenant Simpson, whom
Lord Powlett had Bent, and waa at once
recognized aa the duly accredited agent
of the Hawaiian monarch, with plenary
powers.
Whether it was that one monarch feels
sympathy for another or tbat it be
hooves all the kings to stand in together,
we are not informed, but it is quite cer
tain that the then young queen of Eng
land did not fancy tbe over-ofliciaus
loyalty of Admiral Powlett. He got
back a letter from Lord Aberdeen that
must have aent a tingle to the very tips
of hie ears. Tbe home government dis
avowed all endorsement of hia conree
and gave tbe throne back to tbe greatest
of all tbe Hawaiian kings. Lord Aber
deen's instructions to Lord Powlett were
to evacuate the islands, and, by the with
drawal of his forces, to allow matters to
assume their original condition, which,
of course, they did.
In all probability this is just about
tbe way Mr. Cleveland regarded the caße
in his removal of Minister Stevens. The
relations of tbe United States with the
Hawaiian kingdom had alwaya been of
a friendly character and much stronger,
commercially epeaking, than those of
England had been, for the commercial
prosperity of Honolulu and Lahaina, up
to the discovery of petroleum in Penn
sylvania, had depended wholly npon the
annual visits of the American whaling
fleet on its return from Arctic waters.
Hence he probably reasoned that if
England, with her flag already floating
over the city of Honolulu, did not want
to take poaaeßsion of the islands, why
should America, an equally friendly
power, wish to do so?
At the same time, the situations of
1842 and 1893 are not wholly parallel.
Lord Powlett merely took possession of
the islands in the name of the British
queen. He did not aeeiet the ialandera
to abrogate one form of government that
they might eatabliah another one in its
place. And still further, there has been
no military or naval occupation of the
islands by armed forces ol the United
States; and the action of Mr. Cleveland
has not been a repetition of the "hands
off" policy of Lord Aberdeen, but an
attempt at the restoration of a govern
ment which ia met with violent oppo
sition on the part of tbe ablest and best
people in the Sandwich islands. In
withdrawing the annexation treaty the
president did what waa warrantable
enough, but he should have ended his
action there and left subsequent events
to tbe dictation and behest ol congress.
FALSE PROPHET OR FALSIFIER.
When the Bilver bill wae pending at
the extra eeesion of congress John Sher
man said in substance: Paea this bill
and in ten dayb we ehall have good times
again, money will be plentiful and the
country will resume its accustomed
prosperity. Quoting from Shakespeare
be said: Repeal the silver coinage bill
and in ten-daya "all the clouds that lower
above our house will be in tbe deep
bosom of tbe ocean buried." Ten days
and ten times ten days, and mare, are
passed, and no sign of improvement
hae come. The reports that pour in up
on ue from the east of want of employ
ment and general distress are not le?'
appalling than when John Sherman
• poke. If he believed what be
■aid he ia a falae prophet, but
LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY fi, 1894.
if he made that declaration for
tbe sole* purpoae of aiding tbe
passage of tbe repeal bill, be must stand
as a falsifier, or, in plain English, as a
deliberate . If he had reason to
believe tbat good times wonld follow the
repea' bill, then he may be credited
with being an unreliable prophet; bnt
no one has yet pointed out or can point
out any ground for such a belief. There
was a pretense that it would restore
confidence and thus induce, from some
mysterious sonrce, an abundant flow
of money. How this was to be brought
about, when the basis of confidence was,
by that very act, destroyed, was never
explained by Mr. Sherman nor any one
else, and bis prediction must go for an
attempt to carry a favorite measure of
hie through by false pretenses. In the
sore emergency of the time tbe people
were ready and anxious to accept any
i thing tbat promised relief. In this
' instance the promise was like the Dead
i aea apple, fair outaide but within full of
j ashes.

Horn town, more commonly known ac
| Cbicago, now claims a population of
I 2,000,000, which is just double what it
waa Buppoaed to have been nine years
ago. Beyond doubt she has grown faster
than any other American city, but
2,000,000 looks enormous on paper, and
Beems atill larger if every man, woman
and child could at ouce be made visible
to the naked eye. New York will feel
jealous over Chicago's becoming tbe
largest of American cities, of course, but
she will wait for the official figures of
1900 before ahe yielde the palm to the
windy city. And when she doea she will
put on her war paint and proceed to ab
sorb Brooklyn, Flatbush, Gravesend,
Fort Hamilton and Coney Island, juet
aa Brooklyn, about 30 years ago, ab
sorbed Williamsburg, Wallabout, Bush
wick and Gowanus. When it comes
down to big towna elealing little towns,
it is a game in which New York can play
a lone band.

THE LASH WHIZZED ABOUT HIM
Mrs.W.W. Holcomb Horsewhips
Her Former Husband.
An Exeittn?: Episode on Spring: street
Yesterday.
Tho Attorney Strikes Bis Bx-wlfo With
a Cane and She Retaliates
Bflecttvely With a
Hnrsewli l.
W. W. Holcomb, the lawyer, and his
i divo ced wife caused a highly senaalion
|al scene opposite the Los Angelea tbea
! ter, on South Spring street, at 11! o'clock
' yesterday. Mrs. Holcomb succeeded in
| horaewbipping her ex-husband in a very
complete manner.
The affair created so ranch excite
ment that even the eye witnesses could
not all tell tbe story alike. As near as
can be learned Mrß. Holcomb was going
down Spring street in company with
Mrs. Hyland, also a divorced lady. The
story is best told in Mrs. Holcomb'sowu
wordß:
"We passed Holcomb once on Spring
street before tbe affair took plnce. He
was in company with a Mrs. Caseey.
He called us vile names as we passed,
which 1 resented, and we then wnlked
on. When we reached the Stowell
block, we passed in, when Holcomb did
also. When 1 saw him ptss in I stood
in the doorway, not wishing to go into
the elevator with him. My friend, Mrs.
Hyland, seeing tbat I did not come,
stepped out to Bee where 1 was, and
Holcomb followed her out. In passing
me, Holcomb again cast an insult
ing remark to me. My friend
and I crossed along the street,
going into the art gallery adjoining the
Saddle Rock restaurant. Holcomb
Btepped into the lestaurant. Aa we
emerged from there we were again met
by Holcomb, who made seme insulting
remark. I answered by aayiug that he
was a Bcotindrel and tbat be ought to be
in San Quentin; that he had ruined
more girls and committed more crimes
than any man in Los Angeles.
"Hole nit) then raised his cane and
struck me. I warded off the blow with
my right arm and pulledawhip from an
express wagon and struck him. Hol
comb struck me again, cutting a aeep
; gash in my head. Then a bystander
struck Holcomb and knocked him
down. I kept on lashing him
with the whip. When be got up an
other bystander knocked him down and
took tbe cane from him. He again got
|up and started to run across the street
toward the Loa Angelea theater. I fol
lowed him and lashed him with the
wbip when the crowd abouted to me to
'give it to him; good !'
"When Holcomb got across the stieet,
| Captain Moody caught him just as he
i grabbed tbe whip and took it lrom me."
Mre. Hyland, who accompanied Mrs.
| Holcomb, gave the following version of
; tbe affair.
"When I went into the Stowell block,
on my way to Dr. Wise's otlice, I sup
posed Mrs. Holcomb waa coming into
tbe elevator with me, but hb I entered
the elevator and eat down, Holcomb fol
i lowed. He Bat down beiide me, and 1
| immediately left the elevator to see
I where Mrs. Holcomb had gone and
j found ber standing in tha entrance, not
; wishing to go in tbe elevator with Hol
comb.
"Holcomb passed us itnd agihedid so,
| again, he made some lniuli rig remarks
]to us both, to wbiott Mre. Holcomb
j made reply."
"1 at no time epoko a word to him,
but did speak to Mrs. Casney, the wo
| man with whom Holcomb had been
walking previous to his entering
the Stowell block. At no time did 1
have anything in my hand, as an even
ing paper gays: nor did I take any part
in the affair until alter Holcomb cruelly
' and brutally struck Mrs. Holcomb over
| tbe head with a heavy cane, cutting a
deep gaah and causing tbe blood to flow
I freely. I then begged the crowd to let
me pace, and getting to where Mre. Hol
comb wae, took her to the drug store,
and from there to Dr. Hastings office,
wbere Fhe bad the wound dressed."
In the meantime, recording to eye
witnesses, Holcomb lost himself in the
crowd and no arrests wero mai|e, Ho
i was badly scratched about the face |
Mr. Holcomb could not be found but;
his friends claim that Mrs. Holcorrj i
struck him first. It ia alao claimed that
Mrs. Hyland took a hand in tbe affair,
'. but no absolute certainty is attached to
the statement.'
Tbe trouble ia said to have beeu
caueed over the disbarment proceedings
! instituted by Mrs. Hyland, on the
gronnd that Holcomb had ueed his wife
aa a dummy in prosecuting divorce I
caaea. Tbe case will come up today
and something lively is expected.
VERS* SERIOUS INJURY.

Mrß. William Fisher, wife of tho real
estate agent and mother of W. I, Trice
of the Hkrald, was dangerously burned

S:aulon poet enters upon another
I year of its existence in a flourishing
j condition. There are now 222 rueunDer
in good standing; during the past year
28 memberß were added to the roll and
four died. Looking at the members last
evening it was hard to believe that many
of them could have taken part in battles
that were fought HO years ago. Ereot,
I vigorous, acrive—many of the members
; look like men yet in their prime, and
their bright eye 9 and cheerful looks
show that the fire of youthful valor
burns in their bosoms as warmly as
when they marched and fought under
Grant, Sherman, Sheridan or other
generalß.
When the officers of Stanton poat had
been installed, tin ceremonies were fol
lowed by tne Woman's Reliei Corps
No. 16. The following otficere were
installed, viz: Mrs. f'rancesco E. Aua-
I tin, president; Mrs. Subbu B. Sherman,
senior vice-president; Mrs. Sarah C.

j guard; Mrs. Esther lerril, assistant
I conductor; Mrs, Lydia R. Willard.
assistant guard.
Mr-. Abbie A. Join, n, deportment
president, was the installing officer. The
ceremonies were conducted in a way
| that gave dignity to the eimple ritual,
j and produced a lar more lasting and
pleasing effect upon tbe participants and
spectatorß thau'eouid result from pomp
aud elaborate ceremony. During tho
year the V\ jraan's Relief corps distrib
uted in charity the handsome sum of
$ 1100. All oi* tbie was tor the relief of
veteran soldiers, their widows and or
phans. L-et evening the corps
turned over to Stanton poet
$100 cash, the balance remain
ing in the treasury of the corps
from tbe business of the year. But in
addition to the money spent, tbe mem
bers of tbe corpe visited and nursed the
sick; comforted the sorrowing, and in
many ways rendered those services to
the afflicted that only gentle and loving
women can do.

Now that the new year has come, anij we are
weib:.r i on 1804, social circles are waring
up, and all are to ward to merry Uinta
In the near future. £uKagements and minora
of engagements arc on everyoue's to ague, and
the pros rind <■ ■! .of laeti m itch are argutd
an 1 discussed lrom breaxfasi time until the
liglusare turned out at night. Soon tne pe
riod of con ummatiuQ of litem engagements
will arrive, and then the marriage beha will
merrily rewound th.ungbout ihe city. But be
fore that time comes the term oi pieparatiorj,
when not alone the bride, tut her entire fam
ily, are in tne throe** of plaunmr, designing
and making reu-y tor the great cv nt. Then
is the period ot responsibility for tne bride's
parents, lor on them devolves tbe tattle of niak
i ing the greatest day of her life mils off smooth
ly and successfully. And tni is no light task,
for ther i are a multitude of tilings to be
attend.d Le, Uio overlooking of any one of
which would be nrone to result disastrously.
Not ihe least of these many thingi is im pre
paring of the invitations and card*.
Invitations, aud specially those for a wed
ding, a:e governed by a **lex LU>u scripla"
which U a.< unalterable as the L.w oittio
Medea and IV- .;>.n*. Adherence to the proper
form stamjiH me ienoel as a person oi soclat
cnliure. wliile slip in certain to be
commented upon, and is almost as good as a
passport to social ostracism. Therefore tho
greatest care should be exercised in this direc
tion.
Thoie are so many points to be considered
and remembered in thi« connection that the
1 fmlts of a newspaper article hardly aflbrd suf-
I Sclent scope. The only practical su>ges.iou
which can ba made is to consult some one ex
perienced iv such matter*, aud whose taste is
beyond question. There is at least one such
man in Los Angeles We refer to M. German,
the well-k uown jeweler, at :>2O South Spring
street. M . German has been in the btuim'm
for years, and fias xnado nn especial study o|
