POOR RICHARD'S DAILY SERMON WEDNESDAY'-Since thou art not sure of a minute, throw not away an hour. As we must account for every Idle word, so we must account for every idle silence. A FOREIGN POLICY THAT SHOULD REMAIN SUB ROSA In his Hartford speech Governor Mc- Kinley says: "The Republican party in vites the fullest discussion of its princi ples and shirks no responsibility. Our foreign policy, for the most part, during the last two years, has fallen short of tbe lofty standard of a century ago, and of more recent times as well." It were better for the Republican party that the foreign policy of the past two yejrs and of "other recent tunes as well" should not be mentioned by a Re publican leader. The present administra tion has had to devote a large portion of its attention for two years to undoing the mischief accomplished or attempted by Republican predecessors. The mischief accomplished or attempted was directly due to a kind of foreign policy directly at variance with that of a century ago. The government of the United States entered into a compact with two mon archies for usurpation and rule In the kingdom of Samoa. This was a flagrant violation of the American tradition of no entangling alliances with European pow ers. Grover Cleveland and Secretary Gresham have had to seel: ways and means of extricating tlie United States from this political miscegenation. A Republican minister atHonolulu con spired with political adventurers tj over throw the constitutional government of Hawaii in distinct violation of the Amer ican principle of non-interference in tlie domestic affairs of foreign countries. President Cleveland and Secretary Gresham have bad to sp*lld a good deal of time in an attempt to make right the wrong done by Minister Stevens anil the Jingo faction of the Harrison administra tion. It was a Republican administration tbat, instead of ascertaining of its own account honestly and then unflinchingly defending our rights in the Bering sea. abandoned them to a foreign tribunal, whose judgment it was inevitable would be against us. President Cleveland aud Secretary Gresham have not yet succeeded, notwithstanding faithful labor on their part, it*disentangling us from the Paris arbitration net in which we were en meshed by tbe Harrison administration. ft were better for the Republican party if Republican leaders should not refer to tbe American foreign p >licy of "a cen tury ago" or "of more recent times." — Chicago limes-Herald. The foregoing is quite apropos at this day when the editor aud orators of the Republican party are devoting so much space and wind to reminiscences of a vig orous foreign policy that existed only in their imaginations. To the people who traveled in Mexico, Central or South America during the quarter of a century of Republican administrations, or observed the course of events in those parte throughout the period referred to, the news of "this vigorous foreign policy" will come like a revelation. it is notorious that during the era of Republican control ol the state depart ment, excepting Secretary Seward's ad ministration, this country had no foreign jiolicy worthy the name. Kroni the Kio Grande to Cape Horr, where our fluy should have been treated with the utmost respect and American citizenship should have commanded ua- V qualified deference, the Stars and Stripes were received with derision or contempt, and in times of riot, turbulence or insur rection, the citizens of the great North American republic have time and again found it the part of wisdom to seek im munity for their lives and property by claiming the protection of Great Britain, even if in doing so they had to deny their relation to Uncle Sam. Outrages upon the people of this Union traveling abroad, were of continual occurrence, while the instances of redress or reparation stood out boidly because of their scarcity. When Mr. Bayard became secretary of state in Mr. Cleveland's Hrst term, besides the en tanglements adverted to by the Times- Ilerald, and a lor.g list of claims for rep aration and indemnity which had lain in statu quo for several Republican admin istrations, he found at least three Ameri can citizens who had suffered the misery and indignity of confinement in foreign prisons as suspects, and without having enjoyed the benefits of trial, for almost the entire time caverod by the Garfield- Arthur administration. The most not aole of these cases of unwarranted impris on men t was that of McSwceny, the Irish- American jailed by the British hecause of the suspicion of being implicated in a conspiracy on behalf of Irish national- I . _ ism. | McSwceny was in the custody of the | English government during the adminis ! tration of that idol of American tail twisters. James G. Blame, and it was not until Thomas F. Bayard assumed the duties of the state department that the unjustly conrinel citizen was released. The other cases referred t3 were in the West Indies, Huyti and San Pomingo, beins the countries infringing upon the treaty rights of American citizenship. In both instances after a proper investiga tion Secretary Bayard demanded and obtained the release of the men. In thus vindicating the dignity of the United States and conserving tiie legal interests of these previously neglected Americans, Mr.Bayard did not trail any coats around ] the world with invitations to tread upon the tails of the garments, but with tbe firmness, dignity and quiet wisdom that should always characterize an American secretary of state, he lirst ascertained the status of the cases, and after satisfy ing himself that injustice'had been perpetrat ed he accomplished the results desired. | If nap-doodle oratory and spread-eagle editorialisni were all tbat might be re quisite for a foreign policy, that of the Republican party would thrill the world; but if, indeed, it is a fact that a success ful foreign policy rests upon the vindica tion of American honor, the protection of American citizens abroad, and the ae ] complishnient of purposes, then the least tbe Republicans say about the subject the less they will have to apologize for or explain away. THE JAPAN-CHINA IMBRQOLIO If left to themselves the contest be tween Japan and China would not be a complicated affair, but a mere matter of going on with the war, or agreeing upon terms that will put an end to it. As there is interference on the part of some of the European nations, the situation may be regarded as an imbroglio. It seems to be certain that Russia, France and Germany have united in a protest against sonic of the features of the treaty already agreed to by the representatives of the two powers. If repeated reports are true, they take the side of Chin i, and it is supposed that Great Britain will support Japan. The terni3 exacted of China by Japan are not unusual, nor as exorbitant as are often demanded by victors in war certainly not as unconscionable as those exacted of France by Germany at the conclusion of the Franco-Prussian war. To acquire territory and an indemnity in money is in accjrd with a principle that has been recognized time out of mind. So far as we have information there is noth ing concerning trade which would give Japan any advantage over the most favored nation. There appears to be noth ing in the treaty which directly affects any nation except the parties ana Corea, Which becomes independent of China. Great Britain, France and Russia have possessions in Asia, and it is natural that they should bs watciiful of what trans pires on tbat continent, and to sic that none of their rights aro jeopardized. Germany has no interests beyond those common to all commercial nations. Tliis interference on the part of Eu ropean governments is but a phase of the long continued conflict between Great BHtaln and Russia for control in Asia. China lies between the possessions of the two, and Japan being sea-girt is not con tiguous to either. Russia for a long time has had ambition to become a great maritime power. Her frontage on the Baltic is 1 iniite 1 and affords insufficient opportunity for realization of her aspira tions. For half a century Russia has de sired to get an outlet through the Bos phorus, aud thence through the Mediter ranean sea to the Atlantic ocean and has waged repeated wars for that purpose, but has been thwarted chiefly by Great Britain. Despairing of securing anything of great value in Europe she nas turned her attention to Asia, and by the con struction of a railroad from European Russia through Siberia has gained a foot hold at tide water on the i'acific ocean. Whether that country has other than commercial objects in view is not wholly conjectural,for she has advanced in other directions than toward the sea, and at some points ber schemes of territorial ex tension have been checked by the Britis i. Russia has been constantly reaching out towards India in her acquisitions, lead ing to the belief that she regards Gieat Britain's most vulnerable point to b» in Asia. In consequence of the assistance rendered to Turkey by Groat Britian when at war with Russia it is presumed that the latter nation is disposed to get revenge by imperiling British possessions LOS AXGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 1, 1895. in Asia, and if such be tho case support of China in the present instance is in pursuance of that policy. A friendly act to China will tend to make hnr tolenint of Rusian schemes and cause her to be come a friend in case Great Britain and Russia should come to blows in Asia. The combination in Europe in favor of China is formidable and peculiar. It is not surprising that France and Russia should unite, for the entente Cordials has for some time existed between thorn; but that Germany, having no special instercst in the question, should join in, is some what surprising. For France and Ger many to be antagonistic is historical, and the relations between them for the last quarter of a century have been more than ordinarily strained. Russia and Germany have not been on tlie best of terms. It is a triumvirate that may have an omi nous meaning for Europa. Germany formed a combination with Austria and Italy to be able to me?t the coalition be tween France and Russia. If the report, be true that Italy will sido with Great Britain on the present Asiatic question. :t may be presumed that the Dreibund was dissolved on the entrance of Germany into the new combination. Whether op position to the Chinese-Jap an treaty will go beyond talk and protest, remains to be seen. The tone of Russia seems to be quite decided. No doubt Li Hung Chang feels that he consented to the terms em braced in the treaty under duress of war. Japan will hardly cons nt to terms dic tated by a power not in interest, as noth ing in the treaty requires discrimination by China against any country in the matter of commerce, that plucky nation will prob ably resent inlerfernce. Should Russia, backed by France and Germany, demand modifications not in accordance with her ideas, and should China refuse ratifica tion of a treaty not in accord with Rus sia's demands, the war will undoubtedly be resumed, and then the great question will be whether Russia and her backers will render aid to China in a substantial way. Should that step be taken, Great Britain would have no alternative but to support Japan with force. China is a neighbor to Russia, and her friendship and stre lgth are of vital im portance in an Asiatic conflict with Great Britain. To allow Japan to become the leading Asiatic power would weaken Rus sian influence on the continent, and add to that of her rival a/id enemy. This Asiatic imbroglio may involve Europe. The triumvirate that has been'formed would seem to be a preparation for possi b'C result. Happily the United States has no political interest in the contest. We have trade with both countries, and in Japan it is second in volume only to that of Great Britain, and it is about the same with China. There is talk that in case the situation becomes serious, Great Brit ain will endeavor to induce our govern ment to join her in support of Japan. It is our policy not to interfere in cas'S be yond the American continent, and it had better be adhered to. ~ SOFIEWHAT IN ERROR A correspondent of The Herald refer ring to a paster used by the single tax ers, containing the follow.ng extract from an alleged supreme court decision: "The reserved right of the people to the rental value of the land must be conceded as the condition of every deed," asserts that this is in conflict with the late income tax decision of the supreme court. He claims that the court has decided that the tax on rents is a direct tax and, therefore, unconstitutional. This erron eous construction of the supreme court's verdict regarding direct taxation seems to be 'quite Irrelevant. The court did not decide a direct tax unconstitu tional; it did aver though that the method of imposing a direct tax, as provided by the income tax, law would be unconstitutional. Congress can levy a direct tax, but it must be ap portioned among the states in proportion to the population of each. The accuracy of the quotation alluded to we cannot speak for, but the constitutional power of congress to levy direct taxes will be ap parent to anyone carefully reading the third paragraph of section 2, article I of tbe federal constitution. This mistaken interpretation of the supreme court's de cision regarding direct taxation walks hand in hand with that other blunder so many people nurse, that the decisions of courts should consider the merits of the law being tested.

It is now a well recognized fact, states a medical journal, that the structures of the eye, especially the cciicn 1n 1 con junctiva, are subject to malarial affec tions, periodical in character, differing from tbe usual affections of these parts, but involving actual tissue change, and amenable to quinine or other anti-ma larial treatment.

Pool Contest Last Night and Ventura Races Today norrls Ashner Keeps the Southwestern Championship--The Road Race Entries for the Ventura Events The Los Angeles Athletic Club billiard hall was crowded last night to witness the championship pool contest between Mor ris Ashner, the champion of the south west, and Harry Prick, champion of Southern California. From 300 to 880 of the clubmen surrounded the table and enthusiastically applauded a Spirited con test. Ashner won in 27 innings, with a score of 120 to 98. The play was for a match at |50 » side and tho club nurse, Ashner to make 120 points to Flick's 100. The game was dose from start to fin ish, and when ihe score stood at 118 to 08 the crowd was on tiptoe with excitement. I''rick lost his shot and a fair chance by not calling his ball, and his shot gave Ashner a set-up. When the latter scored his 120 points he was roundly cheered. "Doc" Kennedy was master of ceremo nies. Charley Cook acted as referee of the game and U. W. Kilmer for Ashner and .lames Morley for Frick were the umpires. It was considered a fair game well played. <i. W. Creaser, backer for Ashner, and a thorough sporting man. said that though the latter was not in good condition, no would back hint against any man of his class for from 1800 to $400. D. Winne Kilmer, who claims to be champion of the coast, afterward issued a challenge to the winner, or to James Morley, to contest in a pool game for any reasonable amount, to be lixod after an acceptance. The L. A. A. C. I.i providing much en tertainment at the rooms for its mem bers, and many good billiard and pool games are looked for. After the championship contest last night. L. L.

MILNER'S BURIAL A Large Attendance of Friends at the Funeral Yesterday John W. Milner, late cashier of the Farmers' and Merchants' hank, was buried yesterday, the funeral tuking place from the family residence, No. 721 West Washington street, at 3 p. m. Rev. I. W. R. Tayler of St. John's Episcopal church officiated, and the pall bearers were such prominent citizens us 1. W. Hellman, Major George H. Bonebrake. L. N. Breed, J. Frankenrield, Frank Gibson, Ivar A. Weid. John McUrea. Oust aye Heinemann, John Alter and Dr. Joseph Knrtz. Numbers of prominent citizens were at the funeral, and bis death is felt as a great loss to the city. He was regarded as a man of great integrity and high honor. He leaves a wife and eight chil dren, as well as a wide circle of friends to mourn his demise. Mr. Milner was born in Hanover. Ger many, where he received his education. In 1858 he came to California and en gaged in mercantile life in San Franc isco. When the war broke out he enlisted under General Banning and seived until peace was declared. Then he was made agent at this city for the Los Angeles and Wilmington railway, which position he held until 1874. when ho entered the Farmers' und Marchants' bank with I. W. Hellman and worked up to the position of cashier. His death closes the end of a long and successful career. AN $80,000 CROESUS Worries the Bankers, Finds a Solon and Gets Thrown In W. A.

He lias played the Monte Oristo act on his jailers, but they are as unbelieving as the creations ol Dumas and refuse the fabulous wealth he offers for his liberty. Solon Office Shannon of the Temple street crossing gathered him In while Croesus llaywurd was wandering about the Farmers' and Merchants' bank ordering out his wealth and showing it off to the policeman. To illustrate the matter Havward tried to cash a check for $80,000 and went from window tj window, but at each he was refuseu. and finally became so annoying that the officer was requested to jail him, and so did. It seems Havward thinks he owns the money in all the city banks and has visited many of them with that $80,000 check he so much wishes to realize on. Monday he called on his treasurers at several* banks, and before bas wcrried the cashiers at the Citizens and other banks. If he does not recover from his affection after medical treatment at the | city receiving hospital he will probably ! be committed to the county hospital.

MISS BEATRICE HARRADEN Passes Through Los Angeles and Stops Several Days But Manages to Do It 60 Quietly That She Almost Succeeds in Escaping Without Having Been Recognized One of the penalties attendant upon greatness is the fact that the enterprising American newspapar is bound to add a grain of notoriety to one's fame. There fore, Leoause Miss Beatrice Harraden qui. etly and unostentatiously ate dinner wiih, three lady friends last evening in one ol the down-town cafes, the readeis of the Herald mu;t nejds ba made acquainted with that fact today and a few further points regarding the brainy little woman's personality. Miss Harraden is petite, with a tendency to stoop forward when she w. Iks that is evidently the result of ill-hea.th, but wbich makes her look the smaller at the ;ame time. She is slight of tttture, has vcy dark hair and brown, eyes that glisten and gleam through her glasses when she talks and also her wholo face becomes animatoa. She came to Southern California last fall, broken in health and very much in. need of an entire change and rest. All of this she has had in the home of hes friend Mrs. Kendall who lives seventeen miles out of San Diego and who came north with Miss Harraden that she might sea the Fiesta and. le bataille d»s tleures at Santa Barbara. For several days the au thor of Ships That Pass in tne Night, The Oreen Dragon and other clever sto ries has been the guest of Misses Kelso and Hnsse in their jolly, comfortable quarters on South Hill street. Mrs. Ken dall has also been here, and the quartette w r ere enjoying a very charming dinner en famille at at the hostelry above stated when the scribe intruded, as scribes, will. The little, writer speahs with a strong Knglish accent, and expressed herself as very, very charmed with this section of the country,of course, and told how much she wantJU tj stay here now and meet some of the friend's Miss Kelso wants he» to meet, nnd others whom she brought letters: but even r.fter all these months she is not yet strong enough to bear too much without rest. She flits southward today again, therefore, to remain until she has overcome the effects of the lata festivities, and the wonian'scongress eoni venes in May, at San Francisco. She wjll attend that, and upon ber return from tbcie she will spend a week in I.os Ange les before she starts for New York. Then it is she hopes to extend her acquain tance among the people here, and stadtl the storms of formal interviews if must be. Meanwhile she s riled very grac iously in the informal chat of last night and alluded with much naivette and charm to the interesting day just spent in Chinatown, where the party had ex perienced the unholy joy of buying and burning punks and other delectable Chi nese curios. MIRACULOUS ESCAPE Wild Electric Car Runs Down a Coupe on Second Street Coupe No. 8, J. C. Gratton, driver, with an unknown passenge., was going east on Second street and at the cornee of Los Angeles turned from the right side, of the track to go north on Los Angeles. At the same moment a home-bound Ar cade electric car, Ed Ward, motornian and R. K. Hndle. conductor, went plung ing and careening down the incline of the hill at a speed said by bystanders to have been of about thirty miles an hour, and without sound of bell, bowled into the rear of the coupe and whirled it over onto the horse. The horse was Knocked down three times by the bumping coupe and car and the whole.mass of confusion, car. coulpe and horse and veiling men. was banged along the track liftp feet. The coupe was wrecked, front, rear and all around, and was smashed and twisted and thrown o - i its side. The coupe passenger ciawled out of the debris and,scared half to death slipped away from the scene. The driver picked himself up and extricated his horse and after exchangiung names and compliments with the car crew, quiet was restored and all went home. The birds are weather prophets.
