A CHANGE OF HEART. Aa tbe boars pass the feeling becomes more general that the triumph of bi metallism is near at hand. Perhaps tbe most striking example of tbe spread of this noble sentiment, which is ia hjb line of live and let live, is tbe attitude of ex-Preaidean Harrison, That wily and winsome ex-public functionary pops serenely up with the declaration tbat he ia and always has been in favor of the white metal. He is a private citizen now, mark you, but, with a view to preeidential eventualities, he desires to be understood on this point. It may have been assumed in certain quarters that he waa little other than a goldbug, and tbat with the goldbuga he had taken hia stand, but he repelled with indigna tion any such aepereion. To all of which it may be only necessary to re mark that if President Harrison, while in the White House, had simply sum moned his secretary of the treasury to bis presence, and told him to carry out in good faith the legislation of congreas, eilver would now be nearer the parity of gold-which ia $1.29 an ounce of silver—than 60U, tbe lateat quotation of the while metal which has met our eye. aa we have had uo reserve in criti cising the course of Grover Cleveland— a president of our own party—on thia eilver question, we shall certainly make no bones about laughing at an ex-pree ident'e profeaai v of eleventh-hour re pentance. While trying to curry favor with the miners of Colorado, our dis tinguished fellow citizen still finds time ! to reiterate the old twaddle about tht j United States being unable alone to j protect silver. In other words, accord- j ing to Benjamin W. Harrison, looking forward to a Bocond term after au inter- ! regnum ol four years—a la Cleve'and— ! it ia impossible to have a distinctive American policy. In 1812, when the United Statea bad a population of only three millions; in 1876, when our popu lation was considerably larger, but still a mere bagatelle as compared with our present nnmbera, we could have anil maintain a distinctive American policy, which made go;d and aiiver a double standard to be maintained at par, but now that we can count up nearly sev enty million souls we must wait upon soma other nation or nations to tell up what we shall do. The servile action ol President Harrison when he could have done silver some good, aud permitted his secretary of the treasury to betray the white metal, ia re-echoed in hia ut terances of day before yeaterday in Col orado. But straws ebow which way the wind blows. Although he may cot know it, Mr. Benjamin F. Harrison ia simply an ecpnomic and political straw. He ia weak enough to still look upon himself aa a presidential poaaibility. He is aa likely to be atruck by the presidential lightning as the khedive of Egypt is to to be elected pope of Rome. But he ia not the only convert to bimetallism. The betrayers of the white metal in congress are hunting their holea with gratifying precipitancy. For alltraitorß to ihe righta of tbe masses in all quar ters of the world tbe dies ir:e, intoned in a magnificent diapason, is at band, /"hoar meuibera of ;:ougreßß who ,'iave betrayed silver constituencies will find oat that they have bean consigned to tne "limbo of tilings lost upon earth." Meanwhile, the cause of bimetallism is moun ting steadily to the perihelion. It is being clearly seen of all men tbat there is no longer any possibility of al lowing a few Shylocka of Lombard street, in London, end of Wall street, in New York, to bankrupt the world. Thsir very greed and indecent haste have energized tha elements which will rsstore tbe equilibrium of tha financial world. RELIEF IN SIGHT. The silver lining to the olond now glows over the whole horizon. Tbe passage of tbe Bland seiguiorage bill by tbe house of representatives yesterday by the unexpectedly large majority of 167 ayes to 129 nays shows that the policy of financial obstrnction and con striction is at an end. Filibustering did its worst to defeat the will of the people, and Wall street put forth its mightiest efforts, but in vain. The repeal of the purchasing clause of the Sherman act has turned out to be a boomerang that has knocked over tbe thrower. The people demand sufficient money with which to do thsir business, and the passage of the Bland seigniorage act is tbe first step in meeting thie legitimate aspiration. All the indications are that the senate will promptly pass the meas ure, and nothing will then be requisite but the signature of Grover Cleveland to assure the people $64,000,000 of addi tional money during tbe next -twelve- month. DEATH OF EX-GOVERNOR DOWNEY. i But very few persona in the city knew that Hon. John Q. Downey, ex governor of the etate of California, had been out of hia usual health when his death wae made public shortly after noon yesterday. It eeems, however, tbat be had been ill for eeveral days from a malignant cold, and tbat last Saturday symptoms of pneumonia Bet in. He rallied from tbis, however, but aoon after a relapse took place, and he kept on growing worse till the end came at noon yesterday. Ex-Governor Downey has played so conspicuous apart in tbe hiatorv of thia atate, and especially of this county, tbat his death will be tbe subject of concern and comment in all parts of Caliiornia. He was born in Ireland, butcame to tbe United States when a lad. He arrived in San Francisco in 1850, where he etaid but a ahort time, when be came to Los Angeles, and with Dr. J. K. Mc- Farland opened a drug store. He has been a citizen of Loa Angeles ever since. In 1859 be waa elected lieutenant-gov ernor of the atate on the ticket headed by Milton 8. Latham. At the meeting of the legislature Latham waa choeen United Btates senator, and Mr. Downey became governor. His administration was marked by vigor, energy, business ability, patriotic loyalty and a shrewd conservatism TeuOereOi t, pJ ,,oiar. rile strength of character was brought prom inently out in his veto of the famous bulkhead bill. Levi Parsons, a man of great resources and enterprise, had or ganized a corporation to build a bulk head in front of the city and take pos session of the whole harbor wharfage. After one of the moat exciting struggles ever witneaaed in the legialature the bill wae paaßed, and only the governor stood between the placing of the entire com merce of California under toll to a pri vate corporation and the control of the harbor front by the state. The measure was backed with tremendous and almost irreaiatible influence; but Governor Downey had the backbone to veto tb( bill and save San Franciaoo and tbe atate from a great calamity. The war of the rebellion broke on' during Governor Downey's adiniuistr* tion, and from the fact ot his aasocia tionß and his presumed sympathise, it was feared by many tbat he would throw the weight of his influence ie favor of a neutral policy on the part o this state. But thoae who thus though were greatly mistaken. He pureued i atrictly loyal courae, approved all tbe atepa taken for the maintenance of the union, armed and equipped six Cali fornia regiments to take the field in Arizona and Texas and to prevent or put down any Indian or other troubiea in Utah or tbe frontier territories. Tbe raising of these regiments put an end to all talk about a Pacific republic, which waa a aoiuewhat taking topic in theae aouthern counties at that time, and operated to preserve the integrity of the union on thia coast beyond the parad veuture of > doubt. I The dead ex-governor haa lived a very I unobtrusive life for the paat eleven years. The iragical termination of his Urtft wife in the Tehachepi railroad dis aster, in 1883, from which he himself eaeaped »«if by a miracle, caat a shadow over hia oa.eei from which ho never en tirely emerged. He married a very estimable *ody four yeara ago, and her death, a year since, waa another severe domestic blow to him. Ex-Governor Downey became a large landholder in thia county at a very early day, snd his property in thia city wae very considerable. Hia wealth twelve years ag . waa estimated by one familiar with bis affairs at $1,500,000. We very much doubt whether it could now be appraieed *t more than that figure, aa some important portions of it have ratbsr deteriorated than advanced in value. At one time he wae the owner of tbe Santa Gertrudes rauchc, a tract of land of 33,000 acres, including within ita limits Downey City, and the rich valley landa known as Los Nietoa. At an early date he cut up thia fine ranch into small farms and sold it at the rate of $10 an acre on eaay terms, aud it became one of the moat flourishing and produc tive eecaons of our county. Governor Downey was peculiar in some respects, and was very set and immovable in those opiniona he had deliberately formed. At the time of the exciting contest over the new constitu tion he took a strong and determined stand in favor of that instrument. His LOS ANGELES HERALD, FRIDAY MORNING MARCH 2. 1894. attitude on tbat subject astonished everybody, for his nearest friends and relatives and wealthy men almost with out exception all over tbe state fought what they called "tbe sand-lot constitu tion" tooth and nail. He, however, came out boldly as its advooate and champion, and made spseches on the stump in favor of it. As a public man, Governor Downey performed his duties bravely and con scientiously. He bad all the great vir tues that adorn public station, and none of the petty vices that so frequently de mean it. In great emergencies he oould be counted upon to face opprobrium and personal dangers in order to maintain tbe right as his clear judgment and in ner consciousness saw it. As a private citizen be waa esteemed for his many excellent qualities, and for his courteous amenities to all sorts of people. AGREEABLE MINING NOTES. The news which reaches as from the Vanderbilt and Keystone mining dis tricts aud from the Needles is exceed ingly encouraging as to the develop ment of a region which, from Vanderbilt to Maopa, in Utah, will be one of tbe richest treasure belts ever exploited on the American continent. Much capital has been sought to be made of the fact that the Nevada Southern railway was attached by tbe receivers of tbe Santa Fe railway for certain supplies in tbe shape of rails and ties furnished by that company to the Nevada Southern. As a matter of fact, no other course was left open to the receivers under the law. If the Santa Fe company had not passed into the hands of tbe law no such at tachment would ever have been issusd. But it may be asked, "Why did not the Nevada Southern pay up and avoid an attachment?" Jess so. These are tbe times when every man puts his hand in his pockets and demands to know bow much he owes, in order that he may pay up every cent instanter. That the Ne vada Southern was not prepared to pay on tbe nail may be freely conceded. With all but half a dozen railways in the United States in the haods of re ceivers, a momentary embarrassment of this young candidate for public favor may well be condoned. Tbe fact is tbat laßt month the new road earned more money than at any time in its previous experience, and the business is increas ing at a satisfactory rate, its pecuniary affairs will soon be in a most nourishing condition, as it is understood tbat Pres ident Blake has been quite successful in his negotiations for funds for construc tion in New York. The mining camps contributory to the road are showing moiit gratifying developments. Van derbilt is looking well, while Keystone is surpassing tbe expectations of the most sanguine. The Keystone mine, of the latter district, is working fifteen tons of ore daily that goes $75 to the ton, and the promise is for a much larger daily yield as time goes on. This prop erty is a wonder. With a present daily yield, in gold, of $1125, it is hard to set a limit to tbe moneyed output of this —*- *~ -.V. — - . —fc thia whole group of mines is calculated to lead to the indulgence of high hopes of the output oi genuine bonanias, and many of them. In fact, in this whole belt, the ore de velopments are so substantial, and the yield is increasing bo steadily, that a smelter is being erected at Needles, to reinforce the reduction works already established at that place, and to thiw avid the long hanl of ores to Pueblo, Colorado, for smelting. [ In thi disposition of his immense wealth J. Clute Wilmerding has Bhown that he possessed a public spirit in grat ifying contrast to that of many other San Francisco millionaires whose names the reader will readily recall. His be quest of $400,000 to the University of California for the establishment of a Bchool of the industrial arts for the train ing of boys in tbe various trades will cauße his name to be remembered when those whose millions outnumbered hie many times have been buried in ob livion. The light rain which lell last night ; came in good time. It iound the crops jin Bplendid condition, and though not heavy, it will serve 10 carry them well along until another downfall occurs. All lin all the prospect is excellent for good crops and general prosperity. AN INSANITY DEFENSE. Ohlman Deolarm That a Bicycle He Took Hypnotized Him. The trial oi 0. Caiman occupied the time of Judge Smith's court yesterday. Ohlman is the cadaverous looking yoiinu man who appropriated a bicycle beloniiin.f to It. R. Jackson and rode oil on it, afterwards trying to sell it at ■■ eeeond-h&nd store. When arrested he attempted to rur away from the officer, but stopped wheu a bullet was sent after him. He does not deny the taking of the wheei, which is a first class one, Colurn bia mane, worth when new $120, am which had been in use only a few weeki w ben stolen. 0 .'man claims that he was irrespons; ble; that th rough starvation and tht struggle for existence he became men tally unbalanced, and it was while it this condition that he was hypnotized b, the bicycle and took it. The prosecution had no difficulty in proving the theft and the defendant'! connection with it, while the attempt o the deiense to break the force of the ex pert teatlmouv as to the value of tht wheei fell rather flat, The defense was partially made cur inn the afternoon, tbe laet witness berni Dr. Ktiapp, wbo testified that he mad. an examination of Ohlman at the count jail Wednesday, and from that h judged be was mentally unsound Janu ary 17th, the date of the commission o tbe crime.

The suc cess met with last year was so pro nounced that the management resolved to make a special production for the ooming eeason, aud'with that end in view the play has been rewritten, tbe characters strengthened and many other improvements made. A company of exceptional strength has been secured and spscicl scenery provided.
