Write tho Truth as you see Hi Fight the Wrong as you find it: P«h* llah all the News, and Trust the ■rent to tbe Judgment of the People SATURDAY, MARCH 7, 1896. A LEAP TO FAME With great presence of mind and a cheerful perversion of facts, one Mr. Hartman, a representative from Mon tana, has saved himself from dense and veil deserved obscurity. He did this remarkable thing by abusing the presi dent ot tbe United States for some thing that the president has not done. In doing so the exhumed Mr. Hartman demonstrated that he is in full posses sion of tbe arts of the demagogue aud In no way inconvenienced with the at tributes of a statesman. A day or two since President Cleve land addressed an immense meeting of Presbyterians in favor of home mis sions—and incidentally it might be well to remark that the gathering in behalf of home missions instead of foreign missions tor which so much is said and done, is encouraging—and in the course of hiß characteristically able address on the importance of maintaining home missions because of the benetloial influences they exert in Ihe newly settled regions of this coun try, the president said: **No one charged with the duties and re sponsibilities which necessarily weigh upon the chief executive can fail to appreciate tbe importance of religious teachings and Christian endeavor in the newly settled portions of our vast domain. It is there where hot and stubborn warfare between the forces of good and evil ia constantly in vited. In these days the vanguard of oc cupation in a new settlement is never with out its vicious element. Gambling houses and dram shops are frequently among the first establishments in a new community. It must also be confessed that removal from old homes and associations to new and more primitive homes has a tendency among honest aud responsible settlers to smother scruples and breed evil iiidiffer e<ice to Christianizing and elevating agen cies. These conditions, if unchecked and uncorrected, fix upon the new community by their growth and expansion a character and disposition which, while dangerous to peace and order in the early stages of set tlement, develop into badly regulated mu nicipalities, corrupt and unsafe territories and undesirable states." At these utterances the hitherto fameleS3 Mr. Hartman professes to take mortal offense. Iv them he sees the poisoned shaft of executive malice directed against the west in general and his own beloved Montana with its peaceful mines, its gameless camps and its sinless towns in particular. It is true that the president no where in his speech adverted disparagingly to any state, territory or commuuity, or de clared that corruption or wickedness reigns in any state, territory or com munity. It is immaterial what the president said. Mr. Hartman exalted by an inexplicable Providence to a place in congress.knows what he msant, and in those innocent words in whioh the president tells of what might happen if Christianizing aud ele vating influences are not pres ent in "newly settled por tions of oar vast domain," be reads Blander and viliflcaton for the mighty west, the glorious we3t, where the warm and clinging sun lingers last in Its tour of triumph around the world. Maddened by this startling aud origi nal discovery he, bravely, single tongued and alone, hurls the gauntlet of wild woolly Montana defiance at the preu lent who has thus dared to sug gest that a minister of Christ might be as useful on the sunset side of the Mississippi as on the other, aud in a masterly outpouring of language re plete with pertinent references to Hon olulu, the flag, Wall street and other data borrowed for the occasion from Republican and Populistic oratione.the redoubtable congressman floors with a resounding thud the assertions Mr. Cleveland did not make. Noble Hartman! Vindicated west! SEMICENTENNIAL OF TEXAS The wide-awake citizens of that pro gressive Texas city, Dallaß, are getting ready to celebrate the fiftieth anniver sary of the birth of tbe Lone S ar state, by holding a mammoth exposi tion, in which the wonderful resources and advantages of the great common wealth will be exploited as never be fore. The project seems to have aroused considerable enthusiasm throughout the state. Texas has made considerable progress since the close of the unfortu ate civil war, but not nearly as much as her varied and val uable resources made possible. The aemi-oentennial exposition, if conduct ed along tbe lines and on tbe scale proposed, will certainly be instrument al in advertising widely and effectively the state's attractions. The movement for the exposition was initiated recent ly at a convention attended by be tween 500 and 600 representative citi zens, delegates comlug from every part of the state. The Dallas Morning News, one of the etrougest papers of Texas, hae the following to say of the enterprise: "Dallas has made a bold, brilliant effort to iuagurate a movement which is ex pected to culminate in a striking and far reaching demonstration of the inherent force and power of tne commonwealth of Texas. A determined effort by the live, vigorous citizenship of Pallas in any direc tion is well worthy of public confidence, if one is to judge by past achievements; but in the proposed semi-centennial exposition, which was the subject of deliberation by yesterday's convention, it is apparent that all Texas is ready and anxious to co-oper ate. Ami Dallas, sus'ained by the power and wealth ami Intelligence of the »' ate, can not fail. The interest and patriotism which predominated in yesterday's proceed ings are not to be under-rated or misunder stood. For a long time it has been appar ent to the wideawake citizenship of the commonwealth that a forward movement is necessary to place Texas upon the high way to general and substantial prosperity; it has b**en felt by many that development in agriculture, commerce and industry bai been hindered ami tampered by a profit less and stupefying dabbling in worn out or preposterous schemes of political adven ture. Th© public mind has been drawn away from matters of practical Importance to the immature and ill-shapen theories and vagaries of fierigling politicians and irresponsible demagogues. This condition of affairs could not last.'if Texas is to keep abreast with the civilization of later years. Men of brain and patriotism saw the situa tion and resolved to deal with it according to the necessities of the times. Hence yes- convention. The clear-cut. intel ligent action of tbe delegates shows that the movement is an earnest one." THE TIMES' FLUNK The Los Angeles Times has with drawn the $1000 deposited by it in bank in pretended acceptance of Tub Herald's challenge of certain state ments made by it. These statements were false and malicious, and imputed bad faith to The Herald in the matter of the Women's Thanksgiving edition. Th<3 Times has taken down its money rather than hare tbe issue between it self and The Herald fairly tried. The "method of procedure" rejected by the Times is embraced in the following excerpt from the stipulations tendered that paper: "In this controversy it is under stood and agreed that the burden of the proof rests with the Times, that is, the Times is bound to pro duce sufficient and competent evi dence to sustain and substantiate the allegations made by it in the publications quoted. "It is further agreed that the mat ter in controversy shall be submitted to a committee, to be selected as stipulated in The Herald of Decem ber Bth last, without other condi tions than those herein specified; and the committee shall be em powered to dispose of the subject finally according to its own judg ment; and after the rendering and publication of its decision the con troversy shall be wholly closed and shall not be reopened by either party thereto. "That the committee shall have power to award the forfeit money to either the Free Kindergarten asso ciation of Los Angeles or tne News boys' Home of the same place, or to both charities in equal proportions. '•That the committee shall con sider no evidence except such as shall be submitted on affidavit ; that hearsay testimony shall not be ac cepted as competent by the commit tee ; that technical construction of the matter in controversy shall not be indulged in by the committee, but that the latter shall determine ths dispute according to t'.ie facts devel oped by the testimony." There is every probability that the remnants of the fine Italian army that entered Abyssinia with conquering in tentions will be withdrawn and tbe foolish attempt to subdue a tierce and warlike people in a strange country bs given up. The people of It;dy have, if the scenes being enacted throughout the kingdom mean anything, made up their minds not to waste further blood and treasure in the scheme of Abyssin ian conquest. To call a halt now may be humiliating, but it is better than continuing an impossible task. On the Italian people in general very little sympathy can be spent. The campaign against Abyssinia was one of invasion pure and simple, just a plain attempt at the theft of a country. The Abyssinians are just as devoted to their country as the Italians are to Italy, and it is apparent that they are ready and able to vigorously resist any attempt at subjugation. For the thousands of i poor devils who in tlie mistaken name lof patriotism have been shot, speared and crushed to death the world may ! rightly feel sorry. They were the vic tims of the greed of princes and the ambition of politicians. Tub United Confederate Veterans' executive committee did well to refuse to denounce Commander-in-Chief Walker for his opposition to the pro posed reuuiou at New York of tha blu9 and the gray. A denunciation of Walker at this time would be entirely superfluous. He is already denounced in the hearts of tbe truly patriotic, broad-minded and progressive people of the north and the south. Walker is the slave of unreasoning bigotry and despicable intolerance. While his comrades of the north and bis former adversaries of the south are healing up the scars of conflict and fraternizing uuder one flag as the citizens of a com mon country, Walker fans fruitlessly the fires of passion and tights over and j over again the battles of sectional hate. jHe has lived just thirty-one years too ! long for his own cradit and bis coun j try's good. Senator Chandler is not lost. Tha i quiet which hascouapiouously haunted | his bearded lips for the last few days is broken and his voics ushers forth loud 'iv its acclaim for war. Having tired in I his attempts to iucile ;he tame aud j pusillanimous British race to battle, he has trained the guns of his wratL on the people of Spain. He has arisen in his sear, and proclaimed that it is tbe duty of this government to declare LOS AXGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNTNG, MARCH 7, 1896. Cuba independent and, it necessary, to fight to maintain that independence. Just iv what section of the federal con stitution the power his beeu delegate! to the government to lie ab nit and fight for the independence of other countries, it would be difficult to as certain. The enterprising aud forehanded management of the Highlaud Insane asylum appears to have held an inves tigation of itself regarding ths Colter charges, and as a result to have bad ready a nice, ueat lot of exonerating alii lavits to present to Governor Budd wheu he visited the institution. This sort of defendant, judge and jury com bination is altogether too original to pass. Ttie governor of California is too good a lawyer and too shrewd a man to lend much consideration to suoh a raw piece of work. It is understood that the Hoodoo ed itor's man Friday is preparing to again amble like a hippopotamus in the realm of facetiousuese. It is supposed that the next attempt will be accompanied by & diagram aud explanatory notes, so that the public can hope to disen tangle the puzzles. Advance copies of the forthcoming etfnrt may be had at the Hoodoo's jtitemational scrap coun ter. The preaeat predicament of the Italian government should afford an object lesson to those American poli ticians that are everlastingly clamor ing for an extension of the jurisdic tion the United States government. Ha warden Csstle A discussion having recently arisen with regard lo the proprietorship of Hawarden castle, the residence of tha "grand old man," it may be as well to poiut out that die estate does not belong th*" greatest of Kuelibh statesmen, but to his grandson, it original'y belonged to Sir Stephen lilynne*. the elder brother of old Mrs, Gladstone, and when he died, a bachelor, he willed the place, not to his sister nor to her husband, but to the tatter's eldest son, now dead, and through whom it has passed to his eld est boy, a lad of 14, now at Eton* Sir Stephen, however* stipulated that his sister and brother-in-law should have the occupancy of the castle and estates during their lives. That this disposition of the place was in nowise disagreeable to the "Viand old man" is apparent from the fact that he has devoted the $1,000.000 which he received in the shape of a bequest from his parents and other relatives in great part to the purchase of land destined to increase the estate* which, with its valuable collieries, clay pits, etc., now yields an income of $80*000 a year. Not that Mr. Gladstone has by any means this sum at his disposal to spend. On the contrary, during the course of his , public lite, he has often been in pecuniary straiis, this. too. in spite of his fame as tlie foremost financier of the Victoria era. In deed, he was compelled on one occasion to sell his library, constituting the collection of a lifetime* on another occasion to put Up at auction his cherished ami valuable collection of china, while yet on a third oc casion he had to sell his town house in i'arlton Gardens. b>ing now dependent upon tho hospitality or friends such as Lord Rendel, whenever he makes a stay in London.—-Marquis de Fontenoy in Chicago Record. Mr. As'or's Revenge The editorial revolution at The Fall Mall I Gazette recalls a story of Mr. William Waldorf Astor and the editor of ths now defunct Pall Mall Budget* Mr. Astoronoe sent a manuscript to the editor of the Bud get, expecting, no doubt, to see it printed in large typ , if not red ink, in the next number of the paper. Imagine his pleas* j ant surprise when, a day or two later, ihe manuscript canto back with the curt iui ' mation that it was "returned with thanks.*' ,' Mr. Astor got even with the journalist who | thus showed bis independence by sending : him, some time afterwards, a copy of The Budget with: "Is this paper written for j housemaids?* 1 scrawled across it iv blue j pencil.—London Figaro. Only One Explanation Possible The McKinley editors open their cam paign with the astonishing claim that wo-ti on mills in this country are closing because the wic ed Democrats untaxed their raw material* The editors insist that woolen manufactures cannot thrive unless the cost ot wool is enhanced by a tax. They fail to explain how it is that the woolen nulls of every country in the world, even those hav ing protective tariffs, manage to thrive with free wool. Nor do they tell why our cotton, silk, leather and hoot and shoe manufacturers yet on so well with untaxed raw materials.

A MOTHER WANTS HER CHILD Papers in an Unusual Habeas Corpus Case Filed .Ira. Eltudlllo Trying to Coin Possession ol Mar Pour-Year-Old Daughter-Trie Alleged Pacts Set Forth Attorney Moye Q. Norton filed the napers in a rather unusual habeas corpus case yes- J terday. The application was presented in ! department one before Judge Smith, who issued a writ returnable this afternoon at 2 ocloek. The writ is to gain possession of tho 4 year-old child of Mrs. Hattle Estudillo by her former husband, the name of the in fant being Etta Hornaday. When Mrs. Esludillo was divorced from hor husband a c placed her child with Mr and Mrs. Wm. F. Watteraon, a wealthy English couple, for safe keeping. Mr. and Mra. Watt< rson became very much attached to the child, and when tho mother, after a year or more, took her back and went to live with her mother, Mrs. Sheets, at Vernon, Mr. Watteraon ami his j wife frequently visited the house to see her. With the mother's consent, they frequently took the child home with them, keeping her with them for a day or two at a lime. Finally in April last, it is alleged that Mr. and Mrs. Watterson took the child, as the mother supposed for a short visit, but in place of returning it, went east, carrying her with them. A Bhort time ago it is alleged that Mr. Watteraon returned to the ci.y.and went to the child's mother to see about her, saying that he anil his wife were very much attached to the ehilil, and offered the mother a monetary consiueration to relinquish all claims to her, and offered to adopt the child if this was done. Mra. Bstudillo did not wish to give up her j child, and employed Mr. Norton to take such steps as were necessary to regain pos- I session of her. Application was accord ingly mad 3 for a writ of hahc.is corpus, it being set forth on Information ami belief that the child was iv the city. Yes erday afternoon Mr. Norton met Air. Watterson at the office of .1. V. Uannon, his attorney, where he served the papers upon him, and I tho case will be tried today. It was stated last evening that Mr. Wat terson hail said that the child was with his wife in Boston, and if this is the case it will come out in the proceedings today, PERSONALS Harry Knox and L.

Ferguson Found Unconscious Last Night in Bed Taken from the Somerset House to the County Hospital—He Is Now on the Road to Recovery About 5:30 yesterday morning Isaac B. Ferguson, an old pioneer, was found as phyxiated by gas in his room at the Somer set house on Fifth street, between Los Angeles and Wall streets. At the hour stated a lodger named Logan, whose room adjoins that of Ferguson, detected the cdor of gas, which became so strong as to sicken him. He notilled the proprietor and it was found that the odor emanated from the old man's room. Ihe door was locked, and no answer returned to repeated knocks a window which opens onto the inner hallway was forced. Tlie outward rush of gas almost over powered the rescuers, but when the air had been a little purified ihey entered. L>inn in bed in his night clothes was the unconscious form of Ferguson, while from an open gas jet poured tiie stream whicli had so nearly suffocated him. Doors and windows were opened an I the pure air flowed freely in, and messengers were at once dispatched to notify his relatives and to secure medical attendance. Tlie son-in-law of the old man is Charles Eaton, who is furnishing a saloon at Fifth and Spring streets. Mr. Etton at once diapaiohed Or. Khurts to the scene, and every tiling possible was dona to resuscitate the sufferer. After relieving the immediate exigencies of the case, Vei'itiison was removed to the county hospital, where he at present is. OwitiK to his advanced age, 74 years, a fatal result was at first feared, but his strong constitution will pull him through, and he was last night pronounced out of danger. Ferguson is a well-known char acter, having been engaged in the mer chandising and freighting business years ago, before railroads were known in the state. He came to this city some thr c montlia ago from San Francisco, win re 1 c Lai been visiting his son-in-law. During the time he has been at the Som erset lie has seemed to ho cheerful and ' happy, and the idea of suicide is scouted as improbable by his acquaintances. He was not overburdened with cash and has been looking for work, but up to date had not been able to secure it. Ferguson is an abstemious man, uses neither tobacco nor liquor, and tho only explanation for ttie affair is ttiat, on retiring, he neglected to close the stop-cock perfectly, and thus was unconsciously brought to the verge of death.
