Thb Herald ia in receipt of a com
munication from aome of the teachers
of the Loa Angelea high school, vouch
ing for tbe good conduct and uniformly
gentlemanly demeanor of young Claude
Campbell while a student in that in
stitution. The writer, a woman, aeserts
that young Campbell never occasioned
any trouble, tbat he was obedient, and
in proof of ber atatenifent offera the
■chool records showing "perfect depart
ment" daring the entire time he was
at achool. He was never expelled or
suspended or even severely reprimand'
•d, behaving in all reapeota aa an ordi
nary boy of somewhat nervous tempera
ment and lively disposition, mischiev
ous perhaps, end full of the animal
spirits that characterize a healthy
youth. His preference for Stanford
university at the football gams
waa mareiy a loyalty tj the
inatitution where he began his
•ollegiats career —a boyish idea that he
bad a right, aa a young American citi
aes, to whoop it up for any educational
aystem he pleased. It appears that the
Baahi Bazouka of IJerlteley ti. ll ?red from
bin), and by a coward.y assault einpba- .
aized that difference of opinion. Young
Campbell haa tbe aatistaetlon, however,
of knowing that It employed tha hood
lum energy of a mob to overcome hia
physical resistance to their argomenta.
Judging by tbe preaent attitude of tbe
faculty of the etate university, il will
greatly surprise us if any adequate pnn
iahment ia mated oat to the gang of high
binders who were concerned in tbie
outrage and we adviae the relatives of
the young man to take legal measures
for aeenring juatice and vindication.
THE DUTY OF THE HOUR.
The people of Loa Angelea muat de
cide qniekly in the matter oi a compet
ing railroad from thia oity iato the San
Joaquin ralley. The Hkbai.d hae al
ready called attention to the immense
advantages that wonld acorue to thie
section of the etate by eloaer commer
cial contact with the valleys and iootbill
regione o! Central Calitornia. It ie
only necessary that the merchants, the
buaineas men and tha enterprising
citizens of tbia community ahonld
agree upon prompt and deeiaive act
ten. The people oi San Francisco
have been "thinking" ebont the propo
sition eeveral yeara. They have even
raised a little money with which to
begin building tbe proposed road. A
traffic association haa been organised
to carry out tboobjeotaof tba enterprise.
The leading newspapers ot the northern
metropolis are earneatly favoring tbe
project. But the road ia still "on pa
per."
The poople of the San Joaquin valley
are enthusiastic for ths road. They
have suffered ao long from the oppres
sion and extortions of the Southern Pa
cific monopoly chat tbey are desperate.
They are willing to give every aid short
of that which involves actual impover
ishment, to emancipate themselves
from a tyranny whose policy ia to
"charge all the traffic will beer." The
bneineaa community of Stockton, Frea
no, BakeriGeld and intermediate towna
are a nnit in favor of tbe road; but tboae
who will reap tbe largest beneSt—tbe
bnsiness men of San Francisco, wbo will
derive tha biggest profits from tbia com
pletion—are only "thinking" of build
ing a competing road into tbe
widest area of productive country
in California. Some ot these business
men are ao cowardly that whan
they do subscribe a small amonnt
of money to tbe enterprise, conditional
on an aggregate aubacription sufficient
to complete the road, they insist tbat
tbeir namea aball not be made public.
Tbey fear tbe vengeance of tbe Sonthern
Pacific, and make no effort to conceal
their trepidation whenever their inter
eats are in danger of antagonizing those
of tbe corporation. The Southern Pa
cific has ao often disciplined individnala
of tbe business oomraunity of San Fran
cisco by its unlawtnl diecrimioationa
and its flagrant defiance ot the people,
tbat these timid merchants exist in
abiect fear ot tbe consequences of
rebellion againat tbe railroad corpora
tion. Their souls are mortgaged to the
monopoly.
Tbe conditiona are different in Loa
Angeles. Here tbe merchant and the
farmer have the benefits of railroad com
petition. Our businees men are not
compelled to kowtow to a despotic pow
er, claiming the commerce of the com
munity as tribute to its tyranny and the
producer ac vassal to its selfish will,
The people of Southern California can
defy the Southern Pacific and laugh at
its pretensions.
It is poaaible tbat the citizens of San
Francisoo, driven to utter desperation,
may eventually burst tbeir thraldom,
and, by a supreme effort, overcome the
Silurian conservatism tbat haa hereto
fore clogged every enterprise. It ia in
cumbent npou Loa Aogeles, therefore,
to be up and doing. Tbere is no time
to be loat if we would aecure tbe profit
of a trade that naturally belongs to ua.
A competing railroad from Los Ange
lea to tap the San Joaquin valley ia in
direct line with tbe enterprises of tbe
future —it ia tbe forerunner nf Southern
California'a deatiny. With tbe com
pletion of harbor improvements at San
Pedro and tbe building of the Nicaragua
canal, Loe Angelea must become
the metropolis of California, re
versing the conditiona that now
exiat in tbe relations of tbis section
with San Francisco. It does not re
quire the prescience of one gifted witb
prophetic powe-s to predict tbe future
of Southern California, but our imme
diate intereata necessitate action com
mensurate witb the certainties and pos
sibilities before ns. We are entitled to
tho profits of the present, and it is our
duty to lay tbe foundation of our future
prosperity wide aod deep. Already we
have been appealed to by the people
of tha north to lift theni from their
slough of despond. It iB a Macedonian
cry and we ahould beed it. Let the
work begin at once. It is in order for a
special meeting of the board of trade to
discuss the question and ascertain di
rectly what ths people of tbia city and
county will do to forward an enterprise
that means emancipation for thousands
of citizens now enslaved by a greedy,
selfish, grasping corporation, and at tbe
same time insure to tbis city an in
creased and profitable trade wbicb,
once secured, can never be wrested from
ua.
BANKING IN MEXICO.
Official reports show that the trade of
Mexico has increased $57,000,000, or
about 53 per cant, in three yeara from
1889-90 to 1892-93; tbat the railroad
mileage haa increase! 30 por cent, and
the telegraph mileage 20 per oent in the
name period. With auch an increasing
movement producing on the one band
and absorbing ou tbe other, the banking
capital in the same period has increased
bardiy over $3,000,000, Thrte, with a
commercial movement of $200,000,000 to
rely upon, the banking capital ia atiii
only about $20,000,000, with an addi
tional paper circulation of $26 009,009
redeemable in silver.
Thomas J. Crittenden, United Blatea
consul general {0 Mexico, has made a
close observation ol the trade end tin an
'XOS" ANGEEES r TIERALTJ. SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 8, 1894
oial condition of that country and tbeir
relation to similar intereata ia the
United Statea. Mr. Crittenden fioda
tbat within the tbree yeara referred to
tbe importation from the United States
moreaeed 75 per cent, aa againat an in
crease of only 44 per cent from otber
countries. Of the total importations
in 1889-90. 56 per cent, and in 1802-93,
75 per cent were from the United Statea.
Of the total exportations in 1892.93, 75
per cent were to oar oonntry. Witb an
nual exporta of $64,000,000 and imports
of 151,000,000 from tbe United States,
very little, if anything, haa been done to
provide proper banking facilities for
thia enormous traffic. It ia through and
in to Mexican, Spanish, English and
German bankers that American ex
porters hava to make their eolleotiona
in Mexico; that American merchants
wishing to open trade with Mexico have
to apply for advice, etc.; with whom
American invaitora bave to place their
funds, and our large importers of ore,
coffee, etc., negotiate their drafts. Theae
latter reach amounts of whioh outsiders
have hardly an idea. One American
firm cold to a aingle concern in Mexico
during 1892-93 drafta for not leaa tban
15,000,000 against exports, and daring
ths same period an American coffee ex
porter sold to one concern drafta against
bia purchases amounting to $1,250,000.
Tbe banka and bankers of Mexico have
hardly any relatione with the United
Statea except New York and eventually
San Francieco and Chicago. The other
large commercial oentera of the weat,
such as St. Louio, Cincinnati and Kan
sas City, are hardly known to the flnan
ciera of Mexico. It wonld be to the
intereat of these cities, all of which
manifeat a desire to do bneineaa with
Mexico, to eatablish a good, solid bank
in the metropolis of that country. Saya
Mr. Crittenden.
As to the success of suoh a bank,
there can hardly exist any reason
able doubt. To bjgin with, no attempt should
be made to secure from tbe govern ment any fa.
vors or privilegea except sucn aa can be had for
the mere aiklng, no obligations being thereby
contracted. Ac, for the preaent at least, the
Mexican government will not give any conces
sion conveying tbe right to iaaue bank notes,
ihe proposed bank wouid be classed and op
erated as a private banking borjs). The ad
miniatration should be as simple aa poaaible.
It ia bslleved that a consulting and super vising
board of, say thrse mouthers, aud an execat va
officer, won.d be sufficient, the board to receive
its compensation ln proportion to and out of
the profits of the btnk. 000 l judgment,
promptness, fairness and economy could not
fail to secure to the b ink a valnnbio patron-.gr,
not oaly from large dealers but Horn the poorer
and middle classes of Americans and other for
eigners. A saving department cmid bo added
to the regular balking bnsiness at very little
expense and witb every probability of reason
able auccess.
The present moment la especially fa
vorable for tbe establishment of a bank
in Mexico witb American money, be
cause of the high premium on American
dollars. Atthe preaent rate of exchange,
$500,0000f United Stetoecurrency would
establish a bank in Mexico witb a cap
ital of 1,000,000 Mexican dollars whicb,
for a etartar, would be sufficient, though
not too much. The exponas of installa
tion would be, aay, $10,000; cash re
serve, $193,000; leaving a working cap
ital ot $800,000. Suppose deposits anb
ject to check of $000,000 and time de
posits of $800,000, and there is an actual
working capital of $2,200,000. Out of
thia could be need $1,000,000 for ex
change businaas, equal to, say, $12 030,
--000 transactions. At % of 1 percent
thia would net $60,000; $1,000 000 for
diaconnts at B> 2 por cent, netting $85,
--000; $200,000 lor snndrioa at, aay, 6 per
cent, nesting $12,000; commissions
ought to net $10,000 and foreign coin
exchange $3000, making profits $170 000
—lets 3 percent on time deposits, $146,
--000, The salaries of managor and other
officers, rent and other expenses, would
be about $30,000, leaving net profits
$116,000, Thia wonld permit a dividend
01 $100,000 and leave a substantial sur
plus.
It ia to be taken into eonaidaration
tbat tbe shareholders in the United
Ststsa would for their investment of
$500,000 of American money receive
$1,000,000 in Mexican money, wbicb, at
the preeent.rate of exchange, would net
them 10 per cent laid down in this coun
try. There is hardly any probability
that the premium on gold will go any
higher; neither ia it likely that tbe pre
miums will go any lower very soon, but
it ia probable that it will go lower with
in, aay, two or three years. Suppose it
at 50 per cent, inatead of nearly 100 as
now. Then a dividend of 100,000 Mexi
can dsllara would represent 13 1 3 per
cent on $500,000 American money ; end
if tbe premium ahonld be 25 per cent,
the profit would be 16 per cent. Only a
few years ago a premium ol 25 per cent
was considered very high. The aame
state of affaire oan exist again.
There is one phase ot a probable re
salt ot tbe war between Japan and
China that does not appear to have im
pressed itself very strongly on tbs rest
of the world. It ia an optimistic idea
tbat ths auccasa of Japan wonld operate
for tbe well being of China by opening
tbe oyea of the Chinese to the fact that
their country ia badly governed under a
false and feeble aystem. The New York
Sud, for instance, claims that thia peo
ple would be made to understand that
tbe social and political institutions
which bave existed for ages are worn
out and must be brought within the re
quirements of modern civilization. Tbis
may be all right as far as tbe Chinese
are concerned, but what wili be the
effect un the rest of tbe world when it
is brought in competition with the
newly awakened enterprise of 400,003,
--000 people? The possibilities of such a
competition under modern require
ments are incalculable and the reaults
ominoue to as-called civilization not yet
advanced to the atage where it oan
adapt itself to conditiona dictated by
myriads of emancipated alaves.

What It Ie and Who It There.
Uraat lateraat Hani,

A large congregation greeted Mr. Yat
man in the Firat M. E. ohuroh laat
night. A very large proportion of those
preaent were young people. Tbe atten
tion waa moat excellent, the interest
shown was intenae and the reault of the
meeting was glorious.
Tha toplo of the evening was Heaven
—the place called home by tbe Chris
tian, the Indiana "happy huntiag
grounds," tbe Elyaian fielda of tbe glo
rious city, filled witb the splendor of
the regnant Chriat.
It Is described in tbe last book of tbe
Bible, and creates in ns a homesick
longing for ita bleeaadnesa. To reach it
men must aeek for it and must travel
upward to find it. We may all reach
it. All must reach it, or reach the op
posite place—bell.
The topio waa discussed under four
divisions. Ia tbere a heaven? Yea.
All men of all nations in all history be
lieve in it with more or lesa clearneaa.
Jeana cays there ia a heaven. He
knowa. His word is true. Hs spoke
with knowledge. God has written Us
truth on our hearts—the instinct of im
mortality and an imperishable bops.
Heaven haa been seen, not only by

vvauj, uui My on. «/vuu mm utliore.
There ia a heaven and it will be
reacbod by everyone who followa tha
paths of righteousness, even if hia
knowledge of it ia not very clear.
Where ia heaven? It ie in the weat,
under tbe glory of tbe eetting aun ; fn
the east, in it: dawning splendor, in
the north, in the aurora borealia' beau
ty; in the aouth, in tbe southern croaa.
Theae statements are all true. Heaven
is always near and around this favored
earth.
What la heaven? Blesaed for what it
haa not. No pain, tears, sickness, sor
row, am nor death. It haa no cemetery.
There ia no want there, nor disappoint
ment. Blessed for what it has of joy
and peace, ot full supply for every need
of our nature.
Who are tbere? Jesus, the one who
died for ma. Thia world ia full of dis
appointment. I have had my share of
it and my greatest disappointments have
been in myself —but a eight of Jeana
will transform me into bia likeneia—
end 1 will then be complete. Angela
will be tbere. I know but little of them,
but I believe in them. Tba redeemed
wilt be there. AU the children will be
iv beaveu. To the lover of music let
me say that there will be music iv
heaven. Tbere are all who have gone
from cur homes trustingin Jeans Christ.
My mother, brothers, sisters and child
ren are there, and 1 want to live so ac to
be fit to j lin thsm. Let us all live for
:ho land -.vhore J cant and mother and
the children and music and everything
that is goad, is treasured up for those
who are prepared lor such a bleaaed in
heritance.
At the close of fie sermon a number
indicated a desire to forsake tbe way of
sin and death aud asek salvation and
heaven.
Tha entire service waa full of pathos,
of j jj and of power.
COLEMAN'S CLAIM.

The time and attention of Judge Mo-
Kinley and a jury were occupied yester
day in tbe trial oi the caas of J. H, Cole
man va. J. Downey Harvey, adminis
trator of tbe estate of John G. Downey,
deceased.
The plaintiff claims that in the years
1863-4 he handed over to the late Gov
ernor Downey the sum of $5000 in trust,
to be saved for him, nnd of tbis amount
ho has, ao be alleges, received only $600
in return. He further contends, bow
ever, tbat on Saptember 1, 1891, tbe
lata Governor Downey employed bim us
hia companion, bat tbat while ths posi
tion wae sufficiently onerous bis salary
had never been paid. Tbe plaintiff,
therefore, claims $1400, being tbe bal
ance yet due on tbe trust money depoa
ited with Governor Downey, and t7230,
being ealary as companion up to tbe
time of the governor's death.
Tbe defenae made general denial to
the several allegations, contending that
the claim for the balance of money de
posited in tbe bauds of the governor waa
stale before tbe letter's death, and ia
forever barred. While denying that
plaintiff waa employed aa companion on

J. B. MeClune ia atopping at the Na

story of the enlerpriaa ol tha bnainaaa

"While In Spokane," said he yester

People with the price ot a funeral die co
