Wbat'a the matter w th a newspaper
with new ideae ?
Tjtat ia excellent advics which the
Chicago Herald givea the Democratic
majority in congress—no more running
after false gods; no more weak auhmia
eion to blind or treacherous leadera.
The best politica will undoubtedly con
bist in the ntraightforwnrd performance
of duty. No campaign of cunning strat
egy or of masterly inactivity can equal
the strategy of doing what the people
want. And what they want ia a buei
ness session, with no unnecessary talk
or political clan-trap.
It is regarded aa something of a mys
tery that ex-Senator Carpenter should
so abruptly lapse into tbe solitude of
hia singular originality. Ttiat be haa
gone into caucus with himself to select
senate committees ia not.generally be
lieved by those who lenew Mr. Millard

journey to Loa Angelea. Towae acquaint
ances cay that if Mr. Milliard desired
assistance in making up his committee-*
lie w iiili! have consulted a tourist of
longer residence than Mr. Cntraeuter.
The estimates ot 1806 include the
enormous etim of $141,.j(j1,570 for pen
sions. At the close nt tbe present fiscal
year there were 1)01*. ~>44 pene:ons on the
pension roll, a net increase of 5532 dur
ing tiie year, InISSO. lo yeara utter the
of the war, th<» total number of
pensioners was 250,505. and the ivmount
paid for the voir waa $57.1>10,0 IU.
Whereupon the San lose Herald naits if
it is not reasonable tv suppose that a
very large proportion of tho 700,000
which nave b-en added sence 13S0 have
no valid claim upon the pnhlictreasury.
Surely the men »ho were in charge of
me go vara meat at that time cannot
have heen unfriendly to tine soldiers,
i nd would not hove rejected tbe olaim
for a penaiuu from any of them wbo
needed it.
Tniiiiii Beeins to lie nodonbt that Eng
land's colonial policy nnd her suspected
friendly overtures to Russia hnve ex
cited a considerable) amount of anspicion
and ill will in Germany. Theee hav3
found copious expression everywhere in
Hie press. Especially noteworthy is an
article, emphatic without being passion
ate, which nppears in the Cologne Ga»
zstle. Alter enumerating auire of the
clashing interests of Ruaaia aud Great
Britain) it declares that a friendly settle
ment of these difficulties would be
esteemed by Germany in the interest
oi peace. "But," it continues,
"aa turely aa Germany will never
cross England's patli when it
leads to the maintenance of peace, so
turely will tbe two powera come into
rollioion if in the future, aa in the past,
England is tbe power which we find
e*er ready to throw hindrances in the
way ol German colonial undertakings.
From the very beginning of tbo German
colonial policy Kngland has employed
the most contemptible means to binder
ihe progress of Germany— c, g., in the
CUmeroons, in Toga, in Samoa, nnd at
Peiagoa bay. Germany has put up with
thia opposition for years with the great*
est patience. But tier long suffering has
reached its limit, and ths English gov
ernment must be aware tbat Germany
haa botli tbe power and tbe will to pre
vent a continuance of thia antagonism.
There ia not the least wiah to manifest
hatred of or enmity toward England. It
if simply • queation of safeguarding i
German intereata, and the Finglisb gov
ernment can eurely underatatid that it
will obtain a better result by altering
ita colonial policy tban by attempting
to scare us by tbe myth of Germany's
isolation."
PASADENA'S PERIL.
The Southern Pacific is not co lure ol
getting a franchise to occupy Broadway
avenue in Faeirlena as it waa laat week.
It appears that it will require lour coun
cilmen to pasa tbe ordinance delivering
the beautiful little city into the hands
of tho corporation. There are five coun
cilmen in the city of Pasadena, and two
of these are not prepared, at tbe present
time, to throw the gates wide open to
the invading corporation.
Messrs. I.tikens and Hamilton are the
dissenting councilmen, and they bave
declared that ths intereata of the people
are paramount to the demands of the
Southern Pacific. Theee men cannot
be bribed nor browbeaten, and the com
pany's ngents will find that they cannot
capture Pasadena hy tho usual methods.
Aa at preaent conatituted, the city coun
cil of Paaadena might defy even tbe
Walpoiian tactics of Lobbyist Holly, re
cently resigned.
As a matter of fact, this entire propo
sition ia a solemn farce. The pretense
that tbe Iranchiee is to be auctioned to
tbe highest bidder is laughable in view
of the fact that the Southern Pacific is
the oply bidder, and the ordinance
granting 1119 franchise was trained to
meet the requirements of that corpora
tion. It is serious iv that it is an effort
to make Pasadena a Southern Pacific
reservation, with all the privileges
thereunto appertaining.
It is not likely that Messrs. Lukens
and Hamilton will yield to the pressure
that is being brought to bear on them,
and tbe raihoad company will be com
pelled to be cnutent with what it bas
already grabbed outeide oi the town.
Pasadena will not sutler if the railroad
goea around the city, aa it hat been
compelled to do iv other in
stances, Xo city has been injured
hy keeping thia corporation away
from its streets, avenues and thorough
fares, aud, on the other band, those
comtnunitiea who have allowed the cor
poration to gain a foothold have re
gretted the concession in angry protest
against tbo arrogance and tyranny
that have invariably dieplayed them
selves as characterietica of what
Arthur McEwen haa aptly called
"tbe associated villaiuies." San Fran
cisco is at tbe present moment com
pletely in the toils of the Southern
Pacific, and Oakland has been ruled for
many years by a corporation despotism
that haa re.iucsd the city to a condition
of servitnde bordering on absolute
slavery. In the latter instance tbe rail
road company baa stolen the entire
water front aud secured possession of
the moat valuable franchises within tbe
gilt of the municipality, effectually
precluding every effort at compe
tition and defying every effort
of the people to resist the
extortions aud exactions of a monopoly
tbat regards no interests except its own
—a selfish, grasping, rapacious, in
sensate beaet tbat Adolph Sutro has
called an "octopus," finding no better
designation for tbe monster tban tbe
term applied to the hideoua dcvii fish,
whose prehensile tentacles reach out to
embrace that which the voracious rop
tile would devour.
Paeadena will consult her best inter
eats by avoiding the grasp of the oc
topus.
THE SUGAR COMBINE.
With the possible exception of its il
lustrated pamphlet giving export dis
counts on protected manufacture 3, and
published some years since, tbe pamph
let on thesugar distribution combine, by
lion. John de Witt Warner, jaet issued
by tbe Reform club, is perhaps the most
interesting of its widely known series.
Treating as it does of a subject as to
which vague iutimatioua bave ior yeara
been made on every hand, it preaenta
the summarized results of an investiga
tion reaching every corner of the United
States and based upon what is evidently
an enormous collection of original docu
ments including accounts, correspond
ence, minutes and proceedings of local
oiganizationa—which lay open to view
the workings ol the sugar Must, from its
very inception, along the lines iv which
it moat direct Ly aU'ecta the American
people.
The secret history ig given of a com
i plete system of Wholesale Grocers'aß
• eoiiations. each subsidiajv to the Miliar

! lion on condition of thair keeping; the
; price of sugars up to the point dictated
by the trust; while the copiea of corres
pondence and accounts furnished leave
nothing to be desired ia the way of acu
rate detail.
i he author's conclusion ia perhaps the
baet summary of the dotaila given :
"With the .Spreck<i)B in control of
Hawaii and ths ilavenmeyers extending
their plantations in Cuba, the trust dic
tates to every branch of sugar produc
tion and distribution in the I'nited

A REPUBLICAN LEGACY.
Senator Charles I. Fiulkner, char
mnn of the Democratic congressional
committee, undertakes, in the current
number of the N irlh American U;vieT-,
to dotin? the meaning of the recent elec
lions, lie begins wi'h tiie RBttertion
tbat after a full discussion aud the niOßt
deliberate consideration, the American
| people in 1890, and again in 1898, by an
! overwhelming expression, condemned,
the extravagance of MrKinleyiam and
approved the declaration of principles
announced by the Democratic conven
i tion at Chicago, which euoDraced. as its
moat essential iea'ure, the tenet that
j the power of taxation with which the
government was clothed, was limited to
[ the r.vising of revanus to meet the nec-
I eoaary and economical expenditures of
i the government, and for no other pur
! poee. This declaration ia not an enun
ciation of free trade, nor was it so
i understood by the country.
The people were another titoa con
fronted with an economic Bystem that
had grown and nourished lor over 25
yeara, whose grasping beneficiaries at
each period of ita ravisiin had increased
the burden, end demanded additional
onerjna exactions ol the people, not
with a view of meeting govornraental
wants or administrative necessities, but
I for the purpose oi increasing their own
I profits and accumulationa.
! Tbia poliov culminated iv what is
I known aa McKinleyism. The issue
j passed upon was therefore clearly un
! deratood by the American people, and
the results of the elections of 1804 have
not reversed their verdict.
Tbe eatiees which have led to what ia
supposed by some to be a change of een
timenton the part of the electors of ttra
country, will, by a closer examination,
ba found to rest upon a foundation other
than an npproval of a prohibitive tariff.
Tbe correctness of thia position ia fully
sustained hv tho course of the leaders of
the Republican party during the present
campaign. Put one of ita prominent
statesmen has maintained the policy of
McKinleyism, while all othera have
been careful to avoid committing tham
selves to its principles, being willinz to
submit the appeal made to the country
on tbe details of the existing law aa
passed by a Democratic congress.
The Republican leader, except
Mr. McKinley, haa formulated a
policy on the subject by which his party
should bs guided iv the Fifty-fourth
congreßß; bnt with a deliberate purpose
to exclude the consideration of any
change in tbe existing law, it has boldly
proclaimed that the interest of the coun
try required that tariff agitation should
cease. Thia, Senator Faulkner assumes,
is an acquiescence by tbe Republican
leaders in the policy announced and em
bodied in the revenue act of 1594, or at
least an admission tbat it is to have a
fair trial.
Reviewing the financial situation and
showing its bearing on tho opinions of
the people aa expressed in the recent
election, Sanator Faulkner calls atten
tion to the fact tbat when Mr. Harrison
eurrendered the a Iminiatration nf the
government to his Democratic successor
he at the aame time turned over to him
a bankrupt treaeury.
To such an extent ia thia true that
his secretary of the treasury, Mr. Foster,
had, in February, Is:).), issued a written
order, directing that the pla'as bs pre
pared for the printing of bonds, that
through their negotiation tbe m sag re
balance in the treasury mi.;ht ba en
larged. From June, ls'JJ. until March,
1593, every means had beon employed
to conceal the condition of the treasury ;
generally by delaying and postponing
the payment of requisitions made upon
it. That the monthly statements
of the treasury department might
show a balance of available
Besets, $54 000,003 of a trust
fund held for tbe redemption of na
tional bank notes,thirty millions of seign
iorage from the coinage o! silver bul
lion, and |24,000,000 ol subsidiary coin
were treated in the monthly statements
by the treasury department aa available
assets for the discharge of public obliga
tions. The Sherman silver purchasing
law, "a more makeshift" to harmonize
Republican differences, with other
cauesß, hud Bhaken tiie confidence of
inveators to such an extent that the ex
cess of gold exports over gold imports
during Mr. Harrison'* ndministru/'on
exceeded the sum of $157,000,000. The
reckless extravagance of the Fifty-brat
congress, and the genera! but rapid re
duction of the publio revenues un
der the prohibitory provisions of
the McKinley bill, brought this
great and wealthy government face to
face with national bankruptcy, and laid
the foundation for the panic which broke
upou the country in its acute form
almost immediately after the inaugur
ation of Mr. Cleveland. Confidence,
not only among the financiers aud busi
uaae portion of the community, but,
like v widening circle, among all classes,
was shattered. A monetary stringency
marked a period ot tbe moat absolute
buaineaa depression. Sacorltiai shrank
from 25 tool! per cent, the value of the
producta of all the great induetriea de
clined. ludußtrinl stagnation, with its
attending evils, made iubor cry lor
bread. Such waa tbe legacy bequeathed
to the Democratic party on the tbres
hold of ita administration of tbe gov
ernment. A treasury depleted to the
point of insolvency, busiueaa diaorgan*
izad, labor unemployed ; all resulting
from cauaea for which the Democratic
paarty waa in no way responsible, and
which it had enjoyed no opportunity to
remedy.
To reatore the confidence which had
been lost through thia financial depres
sion and industrial paralyeia that waa
felt in every hamlet as well aa in tbe
buav marts of trade, and to put in op
eration the wheals of activity, both time
and affirmative legislation weie required.
A candid and impartial observer of
current events must admit tbat this con
dition of affairs continuing from the
sit turner of 1893, tho tariff bill was passed
too late to admit of ita beneficial effect
being felt and Observed by the country
before tha eloclion. For theae roatons
it ia not unfair nor unreasonable to claim
tbat, among the most prominent causes
which controlled the result at the re
cant election, wore the financial and
industrial condition of ths country, the
result of iufluencea which had their
origin during the administration of the
government by the Republican party.
THE FOREIGN POPULATTON.
Toe lateat census bulletin gives ata
tialica of foreign parenlaae in 36 states
and territories showing the number of
persons having one or both parents for
eigu born. From this tabulation it ap
ppars that out of a total population in
188.) oi 50,105 783, there were 14,922,74*.
or 29 i."i per cent, who hail either one or
both parents born in foreign connt.'iaa.
Iv tbe 36 statea and territories for which
the tabulations were completed, the
whole number having either one or
both parente foreign born waa 5,758 -
811. or 21.85 per cent of tho total popu
lation (26 354,124) of the statea and ter
ritories considered. In these slatss and
territories there were 2,073,217 peraons
of loreign birth, or 4102 per cent only of
all the foieign born in the United S.atea
iv ISS9, of which number 13 307 ware oi
native parentage, that is, although of
foreign birth themselves their parenta
wers both native born. The whole
number of persona of foreign birth who
were of foreign parentage, that i:, who
had cither one or both parents foreign
born, in thoae 36 etates and territoriea
was 2,669,910, leaving 3 093,901 peraona
who ware of native birth but of foreign
parentage. In tbe United Statea as a
whole tbe foreign born psreona in 18S0
numbered 0,079 913 and the foreign born
peraona of native parentaga were.esti
mated to be 33,252. The whole number
of foreign born parsons of foreign parent
age in the Uuited States in 1830, there
fore, was, approximately, 6,6(6,691,
whilo the whole number of native born
persons of foreign parentage waa, ap
proximately, 8.270,053.
In ISOOtha tabulations regarding for
eign parentage comprehended for white
persona not only Ireland and Germany,
which were the only countries separate
ly tabulated in 1880, but also each of the
countries comprising the nationality
groups used iv ISSJ, aa England, Scot
lend and Wales, iuatoal of Great
Britain; Sweden, Norway aud Denmark,
instead of Scandinavia ; a aeoaratiou, ac
cording to French aud English extrac
tion, for Canada ami Newfoundland : be
aides giving in addition thereto those
countries from which more recent con
tributions of noticeable proportions have
been received, particularly during the
past decade, as r,ihemia, Hungary,
France, Italy and Ruaaia. The colored
population in 1890 was enly tabulated as
regards the number who were either of
native or foreign parentage.
Considering first the results arrived at
in 1890 in a general way, it appears that
the whole number of peraom of foreign
parentage, without regard to color, waa
20,076,040, or 33 02 per cent of the total
population, which in 1890 waa 62,022,
--250. The whole number of white per
aons of foreign parentage iv 1390 waa
20,510 043. while the colored persons of
foreign parentage numbered 156,4 ; .)3.
The foreign white in 1890 numbered
9,121,807, of which 105,899, or 1.16 per
cent, were of nr.ttve parentage, that is,
had both parenta native boru. Ihe
whole immoer of foreign white persona
of foreign parentage in IS9J waa, there
fore. 9,015,968, leaving 11.5J3.675 native
white persons of foreign parentage. The
number of foreign colored who were of
native parentago was not ssparately
tabulated iv 18K0.
It now seema that the Mexican Geo
graphical society is in earnest in its de
mentia ou the government of that re
public to assert a right to the Channel
islands. Of course there can only be
one reply to Mexico's claimß and that ia
a denial, although it ia entirely possible
that when the treaty of Guadalupe Hi
dalgo was signed no one thought of the
island • off the California coast as pos
sessing any value. 'Titles to theee is
landa had, however, been granted by
the Mexican government previous to the
American occupation oi California, and
tbo3e titles bave passed into the hands
of American citizens who are now in
possession and even in tbe remote con
tingency of Mexico's claim being made
good, that nation would still have to
respect the title of tfie present possessors.
Mexico had better confine ita desire for
territorial aggrandizement to a south
erly direction. No one objects to Pres
ident Diaz taking a piece or all of Cen
tral America, but when he makes pre
tentions to a piece of California, unleas
it iB merely done under pre-election
pressure end. lor political effect, he had
better look a little out.
Arthur M'Ewen ia defending the girl
who ridea on a bicycle. He asks if
one who ia not himself a bicyclist, and
hardened to the company ot bicyclists,
can eae a t;irl on a wheel without experi
encing either a de;i re to overt his eyea
or to look at her closer, Tiie energetic
action of her figure does couvey to the
observing novice an impression of im
modesty, juat aa a woman aatride a horse
does. It ib all a matter of ueage. When
with the pasßage of yeara it shall become
as common for women to be on bicycles
and to bestride horses as it is for tbem
now to recline in carriages, only a sur
viving Granniss will apply the teat of
modesty. The reason that the unused
eye questions, is that the skirt ia pri
marily designod to deny tbe fact of legs.
It is tbe Grannisaes and tbe Willarda
who are vulgar, not the women who obey
the fashions of tbeir time. If tbe
question were up as a new one—how
women should be clothed—Mra. Gran
nias' objections to the low-cut corsage
and tho V-shaped back would be obvi
ously timely and decent. But as cus
toms exist it ia as indelicate to debate the
decollete dress as it would be to inveigh
against tbe waltz in a ballroom aa an
unchaste exercise. Reformera wiio are
acutely conscious of their sex should
never array themselves in one or indulge
themselves in the other. And reformers
wbo can't find more serious, evils to at
tack in thia naughty world than tbe
follies of fashion or the mild excesses of
the minor theatera have mistaken their
sphere ; they belong in tho aewing c rem
and could be better utilzsd by their be
loved paatora in church work.
The convention of supervisors
which will assemble to-day in this city
may be made the nucleus of an im
portant movement towards concerted
action on behalf oi measures beneficial
to Southern California. It is proposed
to discuss methods for encouraging im
migration, the improvement of county
roads, county government, '.he harbor
question and the feasibility of
fart ber and more determined
agitation favorable to state di
vision. The counties represented
will be San Bernardino, Orange, Santa
Barbara, Riverside, Ventura, San U.ego
a.id Los Angelea. The delegates are
men thoroughly competent to proeent
the necessities and requirements of their
sections, aud it is probable that the re
sult of their deliberations will be some
definite plan by which the intereata
common to this portion of the state may
be given greater prominence and effect
than has been hitherto possible by in
dividual ell'ort. If tbe various legislative
delegations had been invited to meet ttie
county representatives immediate ben
efit might have accrued by tbe formula
tion of propositions to be presented to
the legislature. F.ven without consulta
tion it will be possible to instruct the
delegations by resolutions as to what
they may accomplish (or the general
welfare of the section, and thiß conven
tion should not adjourn without some
such action.
MUSIC.
The Y. M. C. A. auditorium waß very
well tilled last evening (or the concert
that waß given under the direction of
Mr. Frederick Stevenaon. Mrs. C. E.
Wenger was detained by illness and her
place on the programme was tilled by
Mra. Snapps of St. Paul. Mr. Blake too,
on account of a cdld, was unable to eing
more than one of bit songs, and waa
eubstituted by Mias Sargent. I .seep:
(or tbe above alight changea the pro
gramme waa given aa advertised and
each number waa thoroughly enjoyed
by the audience. Mr. Blake's voice,
while rougher than usual, waa rich and
full, and the Muleteer of Tarragona,
with ita piano and organ accompani
ment went with much spirit and finish.
Miaa Padgham'd clear, high voice was
heard to good advantage in her num
bers and her pianissimo tones are par
ticularly aweet. Herr Arnold Krauae
waa at hia beat last night; he haa never
played better here, and hia brilliant
technique, sweetness and fulness of totie
and delicacy of ehading were delightfully
in evidence. OI Miia Koger'e accom
paniments only praise can be said ; ehe
never lorces the soloist, yet is always
with either voice or string and tier exe
cution is clean and her reading intelli
gent.
Mr. Stevenaon provided a very inter
esting programme for his evening in As
sociation hall, and the various numbers
were all moat enjoyable. There will be
a aocial under theauspiceßof tbe Ladies'
auxiliaty at the same place Friday
evening, December 18tb, to which ail
are invited.
PUPIL*' RECITAL.
A piano recital waß given laat evening
by the pupila oi Mrß. T. Maar.c at her
