WE SHOULD HAVE AN AMERICAN POLICY The recent comments of a certain por tion of the piess and some public men on the administration of the state de partment by the late Secretary Gresham, have made it evident that the United States should have a policy of its own. It should be American with a largo A. The policy that will command the ad miration and respect of the world and the enthusiastic devotion of every loyal citizen of tbe Union, so that wherever the Hag of the free shall shed the glory of its stars, prince, potentate and presi dent, citizen and subject, will yield the homage due tne insignia of a great and powerful country. t Thus far 'tis well, and in fancy we hear the tumultuous cheer ing of the army of professional patriots, captained by Republican editors and orators. We can see the exaltation of chapeaus and the gleeful execution of the festive pigeon wing by the aforesaid army, including the colonels, the majors, the admirals and the senators from Maine and Massachusetts. We fancy the un restrained expression of their joy at this apparent endorsement of the patriotism they have copyrighted so successfully that every Democrat, Populist and Mug wump in the land is rendered a traitor and a renegade because he possesseth it not. We can hear the battle song of this noble aggregation blessed with the sole and exclusive right of loving the country aud wearing the toga of patriot ism with tbe same indifference to con ■equences that a common mortal would display in sporting a "protected sweat shop" shirt, ringing: o'er land and sea as they sing of *'the old flag and an ap propriation." Surely they think they have found a 'home market for the stock they have been assiduously importing for lo tnese many years. But we said an American nolicy, and we mean the gen nine homespun article, and not the for eign nroduct, nor the counterfeit of the latter, such as the United Order of Bun combe Patriots, have disturbed the public peace by clamorously demanding tne adoption of. Their policy is no more American than is the protective tariff. It is the policy our forefather.* shunned and trampled on. It stands for outrage, spoliation and wanton conquest, and has made the nations of Europe infamous. There is but one pol icy that can be American, and that is the one that is founded upon the eternal rock of right, and renders unto "Caesar the things which are Caesar's and unto God the things which are God's;" the policy which ia just and fair to all gov ernments alike, the great and the small, the monarchical and tho republican; the policy that will indulge in none of the chicane, tiie duplicity or the arrogance of old world diplomacy, but that will have the courage to admit the rights of others frankly and the bravery to defend to the ultimate ditch that which belongs to its own country; the policy that will never dishonor the uniform of the American navy by compelling its wearer to overthrow and subjugate a weak and friendly government, even though it be an island kingdom of the Pacific: the policy that nowhere will hoist the Stars and Stripes as tlie symbol of fraud, usurpation aud unjustifiable conquest, "because we need thisor that island." but that will everywhere and at all times win for the old rlag the ad miration and the love that belongs to the emblem of dignity, honor andf justice; the policy that will enable an American citizen to make the proud boist that hi 3 country ia "always right because she will never do that which ii wrong;" the noblest policy any man or any people can have—the policy of honesty. It ia the policy that Jefferson, Calhoun, Web ster, Clay, Marcey, Sewaid, Bayard and Gredham have faithfully adhered to. It is the policy that is true to the tradi tions of the republic and loyal to the teachings of the fathers. It is in harmony With the law of natural selection that the party whose most notable achievement was the theft of a presidency should cham pion the methods of tlio freebootmg gov ernments east of the Atlantic. It is to be hoped, however, that the new secretary Of state will not be swerved by the villili eation aud the bluster of the party.of im itation and expediency from the lines marked out by his distinguished prede cessors, but that he will prove faithful to the true American policy. FROM EAST TO WEST During this era of actual and contem plated street railway construction it migbt he well to remember that this City stretches from east to west as *ell a. from north to south. We need cross town lines as badly as tlie other kind; not half way across but wholly across. And a good thoroughfare for such a road is Ninth street, it taps both the eastern and western limits of the city and tra- Terses that portion which is destined in a few years to be the most thickly popu lated. The only lino approaching a cross town roaii is the cable running from West lake to Evergreen cemetery, and that, ie Will be readily admitted is inadequate for the purpose. The entire district south of Fifth street and east of Main street is without Intersecting transportation facil ities; while wostoQMain. between Seventh and Pico, the same void ex ists" unless we count in the wmi-daily antiquity that agitates the dust along .Ninth irom I'earl west. We believe an electric road over the breadth of the city will prove remun erative and bespeak for the project the consideration of the street car magnates. THE PUNISHMENT OP PAUPERIS:. Everybody has heard of the chaingang, but few indeed know of the actual ex periences of those who go to make up the squad of humiliation and degradation. Only those whom misfortune and crime have made the bearers of ball and chain could tell the tale, and few of this class have been so lost to shame and so indif ferent to disgrace as to divulge the depths of their fall by reciting their ex periences. In order that the people of Lob Angeles might understand the real ism of this modern method of vindicat ing the majesty of municipal law, and might judge whether the punishment is a fitting one for a man who has commit ted tbe atrocious crime of seeking to ap pease hunger by begging the price of an humble meal. The Herald commenced In yesterday s issue the story of one of its representatives who has just "done time". The revelations of this recital ar6 as disgusting and as disgraceful as those made to the public in The Herald's recent expose of the women's jail quarters. To say that they reflect upon the humanity and the de cency of a community that boasts of all the various attributes of nineteenth century civilization, would be expressing tho truth mildly. It may bo and prob ably is necessary to deal sternly with criminals, ana to make their places of confinement decidedly unattractive. But with the most hardened of law-breakerß the instincts of humanity should draw the line at bedless. vermin-infested cells, insect-animated bread, and brutal castiga tion by either jailer or trusty, of prisoners who happen to insist upon their legal rights. That this penal hell should be the fate of the moneyless who have vainly sought employment, should arouse the indignation and resentment of every humane, justice-loving man and woman to whom the shameful facts become known. SAME HERE Tbe New York World has t3ken up the cause of the bicyclists—presumably with or without a bloomer—and makes tbe following vigorous appeal in their behalf, which we know will be appreciated by tbe bloomered and the bloomerless who ride tbe "wheel:" In the Jefferson Market police court yesterday the driver of a milk wagon was committed for reckless driving. He had wrecked a bicycle and almost killed the rider. While the World does not wish to say. nor believe that he was guilty of main ious mischief, ur that he ought to he punished on that assumption, his case gives an opportunity to wara drivers who need warning. From the time of the first appearance of bicycles on the highways there has been some mysterious antagonism be tween them and heavier vehicles. Men of staid and dignified respectability iind themselves unable to resist the tempta tion to drive in front of a bicycle if they can. They never think at all of the danger to which the bicycler is often sub jected when thei- trotters swerve to go in ahead of him. The drivers of heavier vehicles are equally thoughtless and some times they are malicious in their determi nation to force the rider of the wheel to surrender all rights to the road. A wheelman expeting that he will be given room to pass is often put in danger of his life by the turn of a driver's wrist. This may have been natural at first. It will not be so if it continues. The bi cycle is no longer strange on the streets or the highways. It has become a public necessity. It is used by young and old, by rich and poor, and it must be treated as any other vehicle is treated. Bicyclers must not be alllowed to have more than their share of the road. They must not be allowed to go an inch over the law. But they must have all th" law allows. Those who maim or kill them through carelessness or recklessness must expect to suffer for i'„ WHAT THE EDITORS SAY The reputation of this country has suffered much more from tlie jingo pol icy of our secretaries of state than it ever has from the statesmanlike policies pur sued by such men as Gresham, Bayard, Foster and Evarts.—Fresno Expositor.

TO THE EDITOR [The Herald under thti Heading prints cem munlcations, but aoes not assume responsi bility for tne sentiments expressed. ] A Practical Phase ol the Silver Question Editor Herald:—There are a great many people who do not exactly under stand why "the silver question" has so long engrossed the attention of the peo ple of this and other countries, nor es pecially why in the Tinted States, in terest in this burning question becomes more and more intense, threatening to over uadow nil other issues in the next presidential and congressional elect'on. Perhaps a little illustration will help to make the matter plain. Suppose that, under the pretense of adopting a new and bettci system of weights and measures, all old scales and steelyafdfl shcui 1 he done away with and in their place scales having adjust* able or moveable fulcrums should by law be adopted.and that these fulcrums, U> some hidden or invisible mechanism, should be made to creep gradually hut imperceptibly towards the things weighed, so that the short arm of the scales or steelyards should be made shorter and the long arm be made longer, and that this pioccss should go on f'.ir a series of years till finally 200 pounds would be "required by these improved scales to weign a hundred weight or a legal cental; or, in Other words, that all tne prod ucta of tun a i labor sold by weight, should, during all the years since the adoption of the new i'angled system, persistently shrink till what, under the good old-iashiond method, weighed 100 pounds, should now only weigh 60 poumis. A 1 though the farmer or the planter, or the manufacturer or the mer chant mig ht, year after year, see his property gradually shrink in weight, without knowing tiie hidden cause, there is one thing he would know with terrilbe certainty, and that is thai his means of paying "his debts and carrying on bis business and paving his taxes and sup porting his family, etc., were constantly decreasing and tliat if no remedy could be found, he must face baukiuptoy and ruin, or hopeless poverty. Now these results arc precisely anal ogous to what has actually happened, be cause of the fundamental change or at tempted change of our money system in Prior to that year the legal mone tary system of tins country was based on the two commodities, gold and silver, though there had been a temporary aber ration from that oasis growing out of the exigencies of the civil war. It is universally conceded, I believe, by political economists of every school, that all money, except fiat money, is based on one or more commodities, usually silver or gold, or both these metals. And no proposition in the whole range of economic science is more certain than that alt metals, all commodities whatso ever, these two included, are subject to the law of supply and demand. As we have practically been on the gold standard s i< cc IS7H, it is only necessary to inquire how supply and demand have operated on tho commodity, gold, since that date, in order to determine whether tnat metal ought to have risen or fallen, as compared with other things, and then see if the facts agree with our inferences as to what ought to have happened Now. as the world's production of gold for say thirty years prior to 18tn was com naratively steady, averaging annually a little over $100,00!',000. it would appear that the value of gold as a commodity could not have been affected by any very serious change in tho annual supply. But how has it been with "demand? ' Here we see that there have been enormous changes within the last twenty-two years. Germany went bodily over from the sil ver to the gold standard, to accomplish which she required several hundred mill ion dollars woith of this metal: the I'nited States absorbed about $; r »00,OO , VJ00 more gold than she had in 1873 before she could resume specie payments on a gold basis; other nations of Kuiope changed from either paper or silver to gold, requiring of the latter metal several hundred million dollars more; and only a short time ago Austria had agents iii the market seeking to duv for her $100, --000,000 in gold, to enable he,* to resume specie payments on a gold basis. Within a year our own country has borrowed over 1160,000,000. llere, then we see there has been a new and unusual demand, as compared with any other period in tbe history of the world, for one of the sta ple commodities of commerce, amounting to at least one thousand tive hundred millions of dollars. How could it be possible that such an enormously in creased demand could be made for any ar ticle having an exchange or market value without enormously increasing that value? Such a result would violate every law of economics. Therefore we are entitled to deduce that gold, purely as a staple com modity of commerce, ought to have risen in relative value, as (.compared with the average value of all other marketable things and on examining price tahles we tind that it actually has risen in relative value enormously; that, in fact, it has very nearly doubled in purchasing power within the last tweny-two years. Now, as gold as merchandise—which regulates the value of gold as coin—has been our measure of all values since resumption, and constructively tor six years prior thereto; and as, during that time, it has doubled In purchasing power, wherein is there any difference in principle or in practical results, between a dollar that has doubled in value and a cental that has doubled in weight? We all very well know that the people of these I'nited States would not toler ate any such juggling with their stand ard of wdight, as i have suggested by way of illustration, it they knew it; anil if any such scheme were secietly carried into successful operation,or were serious ly attempted, it would cause a revolution. Why should they any more tolerate jug gling with their standard of value, which has caused their dollar to double, where by all their property is made to fall one hall, because measured by a 200 cent dol lar, just as a 200-pound cental would make the products of their labor arbi trarily shrivel to one-half their true weight.' As money gauges the value of I all classes of property the doubling of ihe value of the dollar is equivalent to doubling the hundred weight and the yard and gallon measures, and all units ot extension; and if the changing sur reptitiously of any one of these would be revolutionary, who can estimate the gravity of a change In the value of tlie dollar or of the value of the material of which the dollar is made. That change has been and will continue to be so serious, so far-reaching in its effects on the welfare of the people of this and other countries, that every other economic issue must be dwarfed and be come of secondary importance until this great question is" finally and effectually settled.

Ctcve'umd BMng Powder Ca., New York, Suceitur to Cleveland Bntkeru THE CAREER OF GEN. HEWITT Ad announced in The Herald of Sunday morning, there passed away, peacefully at 9:80 o'clock on Saturday evening one of the most conspicuous tigures ever known In Los Angeles, when General K. jfej. Hewitt died at his residence. 409 South Hill street. It had been known for several months past that lus health was failing and that for a portion of tho time he was a very sick man, and to many of liis friends the dread result was not wholly unexpected. A iter a severe ill ness in December and January last, par alysis of the brain beinir tin; i hiei trouble, he rallied and frequently appeared on the streets. About four weeks ago he went to Santa Monica to try the sea beach atmos pbere, but failing so rapidly.was brought uaek, at that time not appearing to rec ognize any one and talked incoherently, lie soon became unconscious, in which cuiidition he remained until death inter vened ami the struggle ceased. Briefly, the life history runs: Eldridge Ed ward I Hewitt was born August 12, 1828. about sixty •saver) years ago, in 'he town of Pultney, Steuben county. New York, his father being a physician of high standing. In 1831 his parents moved to Ohio, where the Family resided until 1845, when his lather was appointed by President Polk as agent for the Wyandotte Indians, the tribe having been removed to the Indian territory. A chance for an education was exceedingly slim in those days, but. General Hewitt made the best of it, and aiso clerked in an Indian trail er's store until April, 1*47, when at the aire of 10 he enlisted in tho Twelfth United States infantry for live years or during ihe war with Mexico. I □ the march on the City of Mexico. Mr. Hewitt participated in two battles of magnitude, those of Contreras and Cberubusco, Au gust 10 and 20. 1847. He was appointed sergeant-major of his regiment, a position ho held to the close of the war, when he was tendered the ap pointment of second lieutenant in the First dragoons, regular army, but having heard of the discovery of gold in Califor nia he declined the commission aud m company with two other young men started for the new El Dorado, crossing the plains with an ox team, arriving in September. IS4O. From that year to 1863, he engaged in mining and merchandis ing with varying success in Mariposa, Merced and Stanislaus counties, except ing an interval of a journey to Oiegon on a mining expedition which proved dis astrous. In 1863 he came to Los Angeles, arriving on July 31st, After a fruitless trip to some mines in Arizona, involving a walk of over live hundred miles over doserts, he ceased wandering after elusive wealth and in October of that year he engaged in the service of General Pbineas Banning at Wilmington, aud o.i the completion of tlie Los Angeies and San l'edro railroad he became its superin tendent. In 1873. when the road passed into the hands of the Southern Pacific company, he became division superin tendent, which position he held until the close of the year 1802, It was in the capacity of division su perintendent, afterward assistant super intendent, with hundreds of railroad men under his charge, in which the com munity came to iuow him best. Prompt to act, energetic, pleasant, just to all, either friend or foe of the railroad, he won a place in the hearts of every one and left, an enduring impress in railroad management extending over a period of twenty-two years. He was county treaurer from 1876 to 1878 and was county tax collector for 1803 and 1804. and was "for a time general in a brigade of the National Guard of Cali fornia, and has tilled many other posi tions ot honor and trust. His position with the railroad required executive ability of a superior order, and in no place'was he ever found wanting in abili ty or integrity. General'Hewitt leaves a wife and three children, two daughters and a son. his immediate family, and a sister at Santa Monica, Mrs. Jane A. Austin, and a family to mourn a loss beyond repair. He also had several cousins here. 11. H. Hewitt and wife, Mrs. Byron Parsons, Miss 0. E. Hewitt of tho postottice and Miss Sue M. Hewitt. Charles Crocker,the master mind ot the railroad building department, said at the driving of the last spike in the connect ] ing link above Newhall m 187b, when the Los Angeles train arrived loaded with Superintendent Hewitt's guests: "Mr. Hewitt never fails to be on-*«xact time and never fails in executing an order." Mr. Hewitt was a member o f the Masonic fraternity, a Knight Templar, and always maintained his membership in Wilmington lodge, where he was first made a Mason. Grand, upright, noble hearted Ned Hewitt has passed away. Peace be to his ashes.

On a still and starry night, Full of fancies wben my glances Turned upon those far romance* Scattered o'er the infinite, On a sudden broke upon me Murmurs, rumors, quick and loud. And half waking I discovered An innumerable crowd. 'Mid tho uproar of their voices Scarcely could I hear a word. There was rushing, there was crushing And a sound like music gushing, And a roar like forests stirr'd By a fierce wind passing o'er them. And a voice came now and then, Louder than theni all, exclaiming: '•Give us justice! We are men!" Some were shouting that oppression Held their consciences in thrall; Rome were crying, "Men are dying. Hunger smit, and none supplying Bread, the birthright of us all." Borne oxclaimed that wealth waa haughty. Harsh and callous to the poor; Others cried the poor wero vicious. Idle, thankless, insecure. Some with voice of indignation Told the story of their wrongs- Full of dolor, life controller, That for difference of color They were sold like cattle throngs. Others, pallid, weak and shivering, Said that laws wero surely bad. When the willing hand was idle And the cheeks of toil were sad. "Give us freedom for the conscience!" "Equal rights!" "Unfettered mind!" "Education!" "Compensation!" "Justice for a mighty nation!" "Progress!" "Poaoe with all mankind!" "Let us labor!" "Give us churches!" "Give us corn where'er it grows!" These and other cries around me Surged incessant, loud or low. Old opinions jarr'd with new ones; New ones jostled with the old; In such Babel few were able To distinguish truth from fable In tho talcs their neighbors told. But one voice above all others Sounded like the voice of ten. Clear, sonorous and persuasive— "Give us justice!
