riONDAY, JUNE 10, lßpj.
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.
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

ities; while wostoQMain. between Seventh

count in the wmi-daily antiquity that
agitates the dust along .Ninth irom I'earl

the breadth of the city will prove remun
erative and bespeak for the project the
consideration of the street car magnates.
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
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'„

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. H. 1). BARROWS,

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

Lonely Bitting, deeply rousing.
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! We aro menl"
And I said: "O Sovereign Reason,
Sire -if peace and liberty,
Aid forever their endeavor.
Boldly let them still assever
All the rights they claim In thee;
Aid the mighty fermentation
Till it purifies at last,
And tbe future of the people
Is made brighter than the past,"
—Charles Mackay.
