A MILITANT PARSON
A Chicago preacher, according to tba
dispatches published yesterday,advocated
before his congregation the proposition
tbat this country should assin the insur
gent Cubans. He believes tbat this gov
eminent is morally bound, as it were, to
assist in tbe abolition of Spanish rule in
the "gem of tne Antilles.'' The parson
who taus regaled his auditors on Sunday
evening was apparently indifferent to the
tact tbat be was navigating in tbe wrong
latitude. Tbat in endeavoring to save
rebels from kings he might prove remiss
in bie real duty of saving souls from—
well, from tbe other place.
It is difficult to determine just which
class ot people would impose the greatest
burdens on the government of the United
States—the fuming patriots wbo cVsire a
foreign war every timi a Kuropean
power attempts to collect an indemnity
or debt from some tricky little Central or
South American republic, or the excita
bles represented by the minister militant
of Chicago. If this gentleman witb Ibe
peaceful calling and tbe warlike tempera
ment is correct, then, logically, the in
ference is plain that Uncle Sam is under
the same kind of an obligation to dispo
sess every other monttrch wbo seems to
be holding fast to a discontented prov
But nobody with an Intelligent concep
tion of the objects of the government of
tbe United States believes auytbins of the
Undoubtedly tbe sympathies of a ma
jority of tbe American people are witb
the struggling and, up to date, reasona
bly successful Cubans, and it is also
probably true tbat the same majority are
in favor of this government formally rec
ognizing tbe Cnban republic when it at
tains strength sufficient to constitute a
government de facto.
But tbe idea advanced by the Lake City
minister neither accords with the pur
poses for wbicb tbis onion was formed
nor with good sound policy.
It only serves to illustrate tbe hazy
ideas held by some Americans, and inva
riably the same peorie are clamorous
over the delinquencies of tbe foreign-born
citizen, of tbe real functions of a Demo
cratic government. In the minJs of an in
numerable host the government is looked
upon in every light but the true one.
It is to them simply an instrumentality
for tbe attainment of some special kind
of Icg'slation or for tbe subserving of
some private Interest, or the carrying out
of some scheme of interference with the
business of foreign countries. If we
conld only bring several thousand men
and women wbo profess to be good
Americans to the realization that the
government is not intended to be an in
stitution for the exorcise of benevolence,
tbe Inculcation or protection of morals,
the regulation of matters of eating.drink
ing, working or worshiping, or to settle
tne relations of other peoples, the wheels
of our governmental machinery would
move with less friction and more general
A government should attend to its own
business, and let every other do the same.
The sole and only business of a govern

THE DIFFERENCE IN A NAME
The way a municipal legislator will
gag at a gnat and gulp down a camel is
amusing. The council yesterday adopted
the report of the finance committee re
lative to the purchase of a covered patrol
wagon, and agreed with the committee
that the present is not the time to in
dulge In such a luxury. The city is so
poor, you know. And then in the next
breath it is decided to buy an ambu
lance, which is to be used primarily to
transport patients to and from Hospital
de Bryant, atid secondarily to assist in
hauling the guests uf Hotel de Glass.
Presumably the majority of tho council
desired to respond to the public senti
ment which long sim-e revolted at the
open conveyance in which tho guilty and
tbe innocent, the well, the maimed and
the dying, are alike hauled through tbe
public streets, subject to tlie pitiless
scrutiny of the crowds and tbe inclem
ency of the elements. But they also
wished to let the exemplars ol rigid
economy (in tbe wrong place i down easy;

A FINANCIAL OBJECT LESSON
-fention was made in a Washington
telegram a few days ago t hat Secretary
Morion bad received v "financial object
lesson" sent him by a prominent manu
facturing lirrn in Xew York. Il consisted
of tw> chamois skin bags, one of them
containing a silver disk, dollar size,
•tight 4KO grains, ana .9911 fine silver.
The other ono held n regulation silver
dollar of 413}. grai.is and .907 fine silver.
The sliver piece, containing 67!. grains of
Bner silver than the American dollar, jost
exactly (IS cents.
With free and unlimited coinage it is
quite obvious tbat no silcer would be
made into silver disks or converted into
any shape save 412!$ grains American
dollars. Not only so, but all of the un
coined silver of tbe United States and of
the world come backing up to our mints
like several thousands of brick. He must
indeed be a sanguine citizen who can en
tertain the belief that our government's
hat could sustain such a tremendous over
valuation of silver and yet keep gold from
going to a premium and fleeing tbis coun
try as though it had wings. A great and
resourceful government, such as oura,
may safely issue promises to pay billions
of dollars, but when it undertakes to say
tbat billions of half dollais are dollars
confidence in its veracity is bound to bo
shaken. The small boy said that there
was one thing tbat even Uod could not
do—"He oould not make a three-year-old
colt in a day." It may as well be recog
nized that even governmental Hat has its

acknowledge that it is also fair to say
tbat Mr.Cleveland has said or done noth

It is only fair to say that whatever
President Cleveland may have neglected
to do or say he has never neglected to
maintain the nation's financial credit,
nor deviated from the path of true De

question of fairness the party might go

Not a Brilliant Success
Los Angeles Times, Sunday: According
to a story published in tbe Herald on
Friday, the first excursion of the recent
ly-formed Los Angeles Press club was
not quite sucn a brilliant, success as it
niiuht have been. It seems that at San
Bernardino tbe citizens failed to pay the
hotel bills of the visiting newspaper men
and their ladies, as the visitors appear
to have understood would he done, and
in consequence, wben tbe bills were pre
sented a number of them found them
selves without ready means to settle their
accounts. This does not place the Los
Angeles Press club in a very dignified
position. One of the reasons why these
local organizations are so frequently fail
ures is oecause they fall into the habit of
"dead-beading" everything in sight,
from cigars to hotel bills, thus degrading
journalism and restricting the member
ship chiefly to those members of the pro
fession whose cutieules are thick, and
who are like the Los Angeles lawyer who
testilied in court the other day that he
took a drink as often as he wus invited.
The public conception that the average
newspaper man is an impecunious being,
whose good will can he acquired by
means of a drink or a cigar, is largely at
tributable to the system of organized
dead-oeadlng which is becoming so gen
eral union g these so-called press associa
tions, whicli, as a rule, misrepresent
honalide journalists and true journalism.
It should be explained that tbe persons
who comprised the junketing party in
quest!o.i were, wilh few exceptions, at
taches of certain "jim-crow" weekly
sheets. It is a discreditable fact, also",
that the invitation from the San liernar
dino tiesta managers was solicited by
ollicers of Ihe Press club. The invited
procured the invitations, in fact.

AT THE THEATERS
Orpheum—All the lirst nighters, rein
forced by a number of society people,
helped to (ill tho Orpheum to overflow
ing last night. Tbe programme, taken in
its entirety, was the best Manager Wal
ters has yet given us. This is saying con.
Blaarable, for the artists who have ap
peared here recently are many of them
tbo best on the vaudeville stage. Oeballos
leads and closes the programme witb his
clover balancing tricks nnd higb wire
feats, till bert and Cioldie appear In an
Irish specialty, during which act they
work the "bat trick" In the audience
and thereby occasion no little mirth.
The Karbianu troupe, a quartette of lius
sians, are a treat to one who appreciates
sweet voices and artistic dancing. A few
years ago a Russian quartette appeared
in New York. It became a fad among so
ciety people to "see tbo Russians." Yet
tbat trcupe was not as good singers nor
nearly as graceful dancers, and the wo
men positively homely when compared
to the Farbianu troupe. The Farhisnus
iirwt appear in Bogaren costume and sing
Roumanian songs. They make a quick
change and appear in Hungarian cos
tume, sing native songs and dance the
Czardas, and dose their act in Russian
costume, singing the national song. The
women of tiie quartette are handsome,
graceful, yet vivacious. Tlie singing is
sweet and though in the native tongue,
and therefore incomprehensible to most
of the audience, this is compensated for
in action, which tells as plainly as words
which is a driving song and which a
national glee. Their dunces are of easy
movement, well executed and would be
attractive for their novelty alone, in the
Czardas dance tho troupe forms at times
some pietty pictures, to which their pic
turesque costumes lend attractiveness.
Thomas C. Leary proved himself a gen
uine comedian last night. His make-up,
witty songs and droll woy of saying
tilings all tended to capture rounds oi' ap
plause. His song of tne cities, in whicli
he brought In some local hits, was well
received und brought him an encore.
Morelad, Thomas aud Hush, in solos,
duets and trio songs, were exceptionally
good. Mr. Rush, as the loquacious elder
ly mamma with a proclivity lor big words
over which he succeeds in getting badly
tangled, was very funny, while Mr. More
land's tenor was as rich and line as his
make up as a dude was grotesque. Miss
Thompson has a sweet voice, but excels
as a dancer. Tbe only fault wilh her
work was that there was not enuugb of
it. Her jigs, fancy steps and shuffles were
of a character to place ber in the front
rank as a oancer. Mr. Rush's rich bari
tone voice is neard to eood advantage in
some of their songr. Wright and O'Brien
are two of the oest comedians seen at
any Los Angeles (neater in many a day.
their every move, jvoiy gesture, is that
of trained comedians. Mr. Wright was
as clever and entertaining as when ho
was with Harrigan supporting "Dia
monds, diamonds, give me diamonds."
while Mr. O'Brien was as much at borne
as tbouch surrounded by the Ivy Leaf
company. Their character songs caught
ihe house, though tlieir song. Arid the
Hand Flayed On. was not received Willi
the applause it deseived. Wright and
O'Brien are as clever comedians as are to
he seen in the best comedy companies in
the country, tt is to be hoped that they
will remain longer than tbe regular tvto
weeks, and like Gilbert and Goldie, stay
on and on. growing in favor with each

Eucalyptus for Bee Peed
Editor Herald :-At tha suggestion ol
Professor Cook, the distinguished inves
tigator and teacher at Clareniont, I hare
undertaken to coliect the data on tbe
time;' and seasons of flowering of the dif
fjrent species of eucalyptus.
Most of the species flower severe! times
a year. Tlie species vary in .heir flower
ing In different places, and vary in their
honey malting value. I shall bo glad to
receive any Incts that may bave been
noted on these points. Iv case, as may
well happan, that tbo observer is uncer
tain as to the species whose flowers he
has noted, lie will oblige me by forward
ing a botanic specimen to No. 101 south
Broadway, Los Angeles. A botanio spe
cimen is one with the bud, flower, ripe
fruit and leaves. A note should also be
mado of the bark.whether smooth, rougu.
persistent, decorticating, etc. The flower
ing ol many of tho special of eucalyptus
takes place when there is a minimum of
other bee food. Consequently, even
though the honey made at such times
should not be of as good color or flavor as
the honey made, say from white sage, 11
would still be of great value in keeping
Dp the vitality of the hive. There are
some species like the E, longifoUn, from
which line honey is produced during its
prolonged flowering (Professor Cook).and
others like E. cnrynocnlyx, sugar gum.
from which probably tine honey can be
made. It is a profuse bloomer twice a
year, witb very sweet flowers. Bees ne
glect everything else to go to it—at least
this is the case at the present time at
Santa Monica Heights, where the sugar
gum is now in full bloom. I am informed
thai in London honey made from euca
lyptus is sold at it premium on account
(if its claimed medicinal value. Ido not
know from what species the honey thus
advertised an d sold in England as euca
lyptus honey comes* J feel sure that the
line of inqtii ry started andjSiiggested by
Professor Cook will prove of benefit to
our bee interests. ABBOTT KINNEY,

Editor Herald :—Referring to an article
in the Sunday's Times, wliich p'irpoits
to give an account of a difficulty In the
dietllct attorney's office on Saturday last,
I wish to say that tbe statment is in the
main incorrect. To prove tbis It is only
necessaiy to cite one fact, it alleges tbat
"Bull" Williams attacked a grown per
son. But tnere is no gainsaying the faol
that be is too prudent to attack grown
people. The facts are these:
Hon. Zack Montgomery, attorney for
Young aud myself, visited the district
attorney's ottice and asked for a com
plaint for perjury for one W. U. Larra
bee. Williams and Holton both agreed
that the crime had been committed, and
stated a complaint would he iasued ; hut
after being put oil several times with
trifling excuses we insisted that a com
plaint snonld either issue or be refused.
Williams slated that Holton did not want
Larrabee prosecuted. I then stated that
Holton had been seen, or words to that
effect. "Bull" then began to snort and

Editor Herald: Can you inform me
what is the cause of that aR-pervading,
nauseous smell tbat emanates from some
spot not many miles from the plaza al
most ev?ry nigbt between the hours of 8

a glue factory or a lawn fertilizer. If
tlimt rotten-egg smell is healthful, give
me the odor of some sweet, deadly poison
and lot me die with my stomach in its
proper place in my anatnmv.
