DISCUSS THE AMENDMENT The presence of Miss Susan B. Anthony In the state for the purpose of advocating the ratification by the people, at the next general election, of the constitutional amendment dispensing with a sex qualifi cation in electors, has stimulated anew the discussion of the subject of woman suffrage. The amendment in question is known as assembly constitutional amend ment number 11, and was adopted by the legislature March 16, 189.1, and is to sec tion 1 of article - of the state constitution. It reads: "Every native citizen of the United States, every person who shall have ac quired the rights of citizenship under or by virtue of the treaty of Queretaro, and every naturalized citizon thereof who shall have become such ninety days prior to any elec tion, of the age of 21 years, who shall have been a resident of the state one year nest preceding the election, and of the county of which he or she claims to vote ninety days, and in the election precinct thirty days, shall be entitled to vote at all elections which are now or may hereafter be authorized by law; provided, no native of China, no idiot, insane person, or per son convicted of any infamous crime, and no person hereafter convicted of embezzle ment or misappropriation of public money, and no person who shall not be able to read the constitution in the English language, and write his or her own name, shall ever •zeroise the privileges of an elector in this suite; provided, that the provisions of this amendment relative to an educational qualification shall not apply to any person prevented by a physical disability from complying with its requisitions, nor to any person who has now the right to vote, nor to any person who shall be til) years of age and upward at the time this amendment ■hall take effect.'' If this amendment receives a majority of the votes cast at the election to be held next November it will become a part of the ■onstltution without further proceedings. Tbe changes it would make in the present constitutional provision covering the quali fications of electors consist in the elimina tion of the word "male," the substitution of the words "he or she" for "he" and of "his or her" for "his." The Herald has been requested by both friends and opponents of the proposed amendment to permit a discussion of the same through its columns, and in com pliance with that request has already published several communications on the subject. To the end that the matter, which is certainly one of exceeding importance, shall receive fur ther and more systematic treatment by both sides to the controversy The Herald wHI, for a limited time, maintain in the Sunday issues of the paper a department devoted exclusively to the discussion of the proposed amendment. Not exceeding two columns of space in each issue will be given to this department, which will be commenced the ensuing Sunday. Con tributions thereto must not exceed 800 words, written legibly, on one side of the paper only. They will be published in the order that they are received, and should be addressed "Amendment," Editorial De partment The. Herald. Wade in, and bear in mind that the shortest communi cations will be the most widely read. CARLISLE'S STRENGTH Our happy-go-lucky evening contempo rary, the Express, is moved to jubilation at the prospect of the Democratic nomination of John G. Carlisle—Cleveland's and The Herald's candidate for the presidency presaging, as a result, a party split at Chi cago. The Express is a superficial student at national men and measures when it Jumps to the conclusion that Mr. Carlisle has not established himself, by his course, In the confidence of the really ponderable element of his party, and in the high esti mation of the vast independent business and financial world as well. John O. Car lisle has the distinct advantage of occupy ing a position upon all public questions that is not ambiguous. His most conspic uous Republican adversaries deal in glit tering generalities about "favoring bimet allism" with "gold, silver and paper as sound as the government and as untar nished as its honor." This is all ai-tful dodging and bogwash, and everybody knows it. We make the prediction now that there will be no split at Chicago, and that Mr. Carlisle will be nominated; and, further, that if he shall try conclusions with an op ponent as lopsided aud equivocal as Wil liam McKinley, the great Kentuckian will win. DOWN BUCKLEY Every Californian, regardless of political proclivity, should be heartily glad of tlie signal defeat suffered by the agents of Buckley before the Democratic stale cen tral committee. The minions cf the ex proprietor of the San Francisco Pernor racy >t tired in the garb of the Kearny street ■tatue were noisy and disorderly in their attempts to hold up the hands of the few adherents that the "blind white devil" had on the committee. But in spite of threats and ruffianism the late boss was turned down. No greater misfortune could befall toe iiemociaiic party Of iu.o vtutv iuau tv again have Buckley In control of the party machinery at San Francisco. The representation of the San Francisco Democracy constitute, so large a propor tion of every state convocation of the party that it almost invariably exercise, a controlling influence, so that the predom inance of Buckley in San Francisco means something to Democrat, outside that city. His supremacy there also enables him to wield a determining influence in the state legislature, no matter which party may be in the majority in that body. The San Francisco delegation constitutes about one-third of the legislature, and when con trolled by Buckley it can readily be seen that it is potent for evil. Hence it is that not alone the Democracy but the people of all parties are interested in the frustration of the designs of the Bush street God. It is really a case of the People versus Buck leyiom. Hoises are going up. It ia not meant by this that they are going up higher or faster than heretofore —on the contrary, they may be built lower and slower than for a long time past. They are going up in price. After long and tedious effort t/ie lumber interests of the Pacific coast have come together, and one of the combines you read about has been formed, and the price of the material out of whicli build ings. Bidewalks, matches, toothpicks and —according to tradition—in Connecticut hams and nutmegs are made, will be ad vanced a few pegs. The reason given by the lumbermen for the upward twist is that it is necessary in order to make the business profitable. The men of boards, beams and shingles are really under no obligation to give any reason, and in doing so they show that even they have "a de cent regard for tho opinions of mankind,"' but while they are about it they might as well be exact and say the hoist is needed to make the business "more" profitable. A cynical world will probably persist in disbelieving the assertion that for the last few years the lumber dealers have sold their material at a loss. There does not seem to have been any general impover ishment of lumber magnates lately. General S( HOKtELudoes not agree with tlie popular belief that war with modern engines of warfare would cause greater hu man slaughter than before. "War today,"' he says, "so far as loss of life is con cerned, would be more humane than it ever was, but on the other hand it would be terribly destructive to property. Cities would be destroyed as well as ships and fortifications, but the men would fight more under cover and at longer range." It is probable that very few people will agree with the general regarding the les sened liability of men to death in a mod ern war, but if he can convince the world that property will suffer more than men and more than ever before, that whole cit ies would be wiped out, he will advance the cause of peace a long way. The pow ers that rule the world seldom value men, but property — well, that is a different thing. The relinquishment of the San Bernar dina Sun by that able and scholarly Demo cratic editor, Mr. W. A. Selkirk, will be regretted by the Democracy of San Bern ardino county. Mr. Selkirk's successors m the proprietorship of the Sun are cap able newspaper men who will undoubtedly maintain the Sun on tho high plane of ex cellence established by its former owner. But thoy belong to the wrong political tribe and the journalistic gun they have captured will be turned against tlie faith that it so long and nobly defended. A Republican paper uo north calls on the next national Kepublican convention to adopt a financial plank that "will reflect the average judgment of the party." In view of the diverse views and antagonistic attitudes of the various leaders of the party, it would puzzle a political Solomon to tell just what that average judgment is. Sherman and Morgan have at last found a subject on which they can agree—the Cuban question as it is represented in the resolutions now before the senate. What is the matter with a presidential ticket like this—Sherman and Morgan; platform, the right of the United State senate to leg islate for the world. Senator Push of Alabama, seems dis turbed because certain prominent Demo crats have altered their minds in the last few years regarding the advisability of coining silver. The senator should re member that only a small number of men are like him self endowed with a granite in ability to learn. Spain talks about annihilating our mer chant marine, in the event of war, as though that would hurt us. We have so little of that sort of thing that we would hardly know when the annihilation was completed. The hunt for the American merchant marine would take two Spanish navies. Thk Kentucky legislature has settled the senatorial contest by adjourning and leav ing it unsettled. This is really better than unseating members to suit partisan needs, or making corpses out of each other with the aid of six-shooters. As Senator Quay is a native of the United States and over .'ls years of age there is no good reason why he should not l>e a candidate for the presidency, but as to why he should not be elected the reasons are multitudinous. Kino Mf.nelkk of Abyssinia is a blood. He made Rome howl. Correct Bro. Weeks of the Bakersfleld Californi an is one of the best-hearted feiiows in the profession, and tiiis leads him to come to the defense of E.htor < His of Los Angeles, wtio has received such general abuse at the hands of the fraternity since making himself so unneccessarily conspicuous in political matters, it is true, as the Cali fornian says, that there is too great ten dency among Californians to belittle their own prominent men; but if there ever was an editor more open to criticism in this very respect than Mr. Otis wf cannot re call him. He has persistently?indulged in abuse of about everybody else, and thus fairly earned the dis.ike of the fraternity, notwithstanding his acknowledged ability. —Riverside Press.

It is no longer necessary to wade through columns of ab solutely unnecessary detail in order to learn what is going on about one. Those who appreciate the presentation of news in a condensed and intelligent form, freed from the cumbersome methods of a rapid ly vanishing past, and distinctively up to date in its scope, should subscribe for The Herald.

C. Hichowsky at her picturesque : home, "Sunny Slope," in honor of the Misses Tallant. For diversity of amuse ment and a thoroughly informal and de- I I sinful time the entertainment will long be remembered by tho guests as an affair >of unusual pleasure. The guests came and l went at pleasure from the prettily adorned rooms to ihe spacious lawn that surrounds the house. Games of all kinds were en joyed. Among these was the running game, which was as pretty in effect as it was en tertaining. The fleetest runners were I awarded prizes. The first was ■ a pretty | silver flower-holder, the second a picture j done on porcelain, and the booby a silver mounted emery. The art loan exhibit evoked a great deal of thought as well as fun, different unique I objects on wall Bnd table represented cele- I brated paintings, and pencil and paper I were kept busy in putting down correct I guesses. The first prize for this was a | handsome Venetian glass puff box, the ; second a fancy box of paper. The drawing ! rooms were brilliant with California pop i pies that were arranged with artistic grace lin bowls, and were in evidence in all parts lof the room; softening the bright hue was | smilax that swung from corners of the apartment and framed the door ways. I'epper branches did duty in the hall, aud | iti the two dining rooms where dainty ) viands were served pink was the color j scheme chosen. Pink carnations were ; scattered over the small tables in one room | and in the other the guests were seated at I one long table. Pink ribbons reached from ! the chandelier to the four corners of the j table and terminated in large French bows, pink carnations and peach blossoms were the fragrant blossoms used. Daylight was excluded and soft shaded lamps accen tuated the charming effect. Pleasing ad juncts to the whole were gay colored paper caps that hung from the back of the chairs, and when donned by the fair guests the ef fect was wondrously pretty. Decorated cards at each place were numbered, some corresponding with those holding prizes. Three bore donkeys' heads that drew a sil ver stickpin of enamel set with pearls, a study in water colors, and a silver pen holder. Number 1:1 drew a gold button honk, and a box of bonbons fell to the lot of the one wearing the dunce's cap. The afternoon was full of delightful surprises from beginning to entl. There was a reading by Miss Shepherd of Fall River that was most enjoyable. The hospitable hoaiees was assisted in receiv ing by Mines, .lames Foord. John Ellis,. the Misses Tallant and .Miss Kerckholf. The guests wre Miss Tallant Miss Har riet Tallant, Mrs. .lames Foord, Mrs. J. F. Ellis. Misses kerckhoff, Stephens, Noia Pun-ell.

Lucheon at Mrs. Whiting's Mrs. Dwight Whiting entertained with a delightful luncheon yesterday at her home on Figueroa street to meet Mrs. Na thaniel Whiting of Boston. Acacia and narcissus made the charming combination that decorated the table, and in the service tlie same color was repeated. A bunch of the effective flowers occupied the center of the table and reposed on a centerpiece of exquisite work done in yellow. In tho drawing room roses were used to advant age. The guests who enjoyed the delight ful afternoon were Mines. Nathaniel Whit ing, Keating, Herron of Pittsburg, B. H. Herron. H. G. Brooks, t'. M. Severance. Allen of Sierra Madre, J. C. Merrill, Alfred Solano. Dance at the Argvle A very delightful dance that was largely attended was given at the Hotel Argyle last night hy the management. The hall and dining room where the evening's pleas ure was spent was profusely decorated with peppers and callas. There was a pretty division at one of side the dining room formed by tlshnetting interwoven with flowers and green. And every where flowers were used to great advantage. These dances have become so popular that each iB anticipated with much pleasure. The floor was in excellent condition and the music was furnished by Schoneman- Blanchard orchestra. Here and There Mrs. George Mead is visiting Santa Bar bara for several weeks. Prof. Payne and class cave a very en joyable reception and dance at Illinois hall last night. There was a good atten dance, excellent musiCi and a delightful time was spent by all. His Eminence Archbishop Riordan of San Francisco and the members of the local priesthood were entertained by the Kight Key. Bishop Montgomery at tho bishop's palace yesterday afternoon. The following jolly party, chaperoned by Mrs. Young.Miss Clara Hnrknessand Miss tirace Perry, enjoyed a tally ho drive to the Devil's Gate last Saturday. Luncheon was served, and tho return home was late in tho day. Those present were Misses Alice darkness. Clara Milner, Eva Perry, Eula Smith, Sadie Hartwell, Messrs. Leslie Jen kins, Charley Stamps, Arthur Blackmail, ('barley Turner, t'urren. The ladies of the Woman's Relief corps of John A. Logan post, gave a delightful entertainment and dance at their rooms, 610' A South Spring street yesterday even ing. The charming singer. Miss Julia Williams, assisted by a quartet of colored minstrels, contributed a number of excel lent vocal selections, which were greatly enjoyed by all. Dancing was the main feature of the evening and was indulged in till a late hour. The guests were cordi ally received by the following ladies: Mmes. William Egelhoff, Robert Tucker, Walsh and Smith. Those who presided over the punch bowl were: Mrs. Cady Pomeroy and Mrs. Martha Chapin. AT THE THEATERS The Burbank.—The Carletons made many more friends last night, and the suc cess of their fortnight's engagement seems thoroughly assured. Last night at the pro duction of The Bohemian Girl there was not a vacant seat, and the efforts of the principals were received with enthusiastic appreciation. There was an attractive significance in its performance on St. Pat rick's Day, for Michael Balfo was born and bred in Dublin. The production last night, pleasing as it was, did not, with the exception of the work of the principals. riße above medi ocrity. The chorus had much more to do than in Fra Diavolo, and their deficiencies were discovered; much might have been hidden or relieved by a competent orches tra, but the conductor's left hand on the piano can never be regarded as a satisfac tory accompaniment to opera. The or chestra opened up in much better form >nd had evidently been at some pains with the overture, but subsequently their on leavors, when they did endeavor, were lamentably feeble. The strength of the productions would be invaluably increased could the present orchestra be reinforced by two or three capable musicians. Miss Rena Atkinson, Jay C. Taylor and W. T. Carleton were all in good voice, and :heir line renderings of the gems of the ipera elicited very hearty applause. The soprano increased her reputation. As an sncore to I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Kalis, The Last Rose of Summer was in troduced, and the rare sweetness ol her mice found excellent expression in the Irish air. Mr. Carleton was a little husky n his highest notes, but he sang The Heart Flowed Down with the finest feeling and tlnish. It was loudly re-demanded. The tenor. Jay C. Taylor, as Thad leus, won the most generous applause of (lie evening in the solo When Other Hearts md Other Lips. Another most pleasing lumber was the duo with Arline, The Se cret of My Life. The comedian. Tom liicketts. was in fine fettle, and his Dev lshoof, difficult enough not to overdo, was i very characteristic impersonation. Miss Tara Wisdom made an imposing enough ■ypsy yueen. George W. Campbell also lid very well with the part of the inane lude, Florestan. The Bohemian Girl will >c repeated tonight, and at a special mati nee today tlie pleasing production of Fra Diavolo will be repeated. tfr V <r Coming ATTBActiohs.—To the present generation of American playgoers, the character of Virginius is forever associated with the figure, the action, the voice, the whole personality of John McCullotigh. To a generation that has been privileged to witness the work of the greatest persona tor of; I lonian characters since John Phillip Kemble three has been but one Brutus,one Coriolanus, one Virginius. Indeed, in these days there are very few who can enact Virginius at all. It is a crucial test of any actor's claim to play legitimate business. Mr. James O'Neill is said to enact Vir ginius with a strong and intelligent grasp of the great traditions of the character and with thorough skill, grace and sympathetic power. This becomes all the morn prof itable to Mr. O'Neill when it is considered that the essence of his power has always been considered to lie in the emotional and melodramatic school, as far removed ns possible from the lino of tragical work. Mr. O'Neill will present Virginius at the Los Angeles theater on Friday evening, and Monte Cristo on Thursday and Satur day evenings of this week. The sale of seats opens today for the evening of harmony to be presented at the Los Angeles theater on Sunday next.March 22.

Annui)hlm mora than 1.0(101000 box,*. musical critic of the New York Evening Post, says concerning Ondricek's recent appearance in New York, as follows: The soloist was Mr. Ondricek, who made his American tlebut on this occasion. Be ing a Bohemian, it was natural that he should choose the violin concerto of his countryman, Dvorak.' 'It is not one of that composer's most inspired works, but it I. diffctilt enough to tempt the most daring virtuoso, and that Mr. (Midriceu surmount ed its awkward intervals without lapse or intonation was a pleasant surprise to begin with. His bowing is smooth and easy, his phrasing never inartistic, hut his most striking trait is that to which Herman critics have called attention, the refreshing animation of his playing. He seems to en joy himself and that proves contagious to tho audience. He was also heard in Ernst's Hungarian air. and Bach's chaconne, in which he gave further proof of his mastery of the violin. Materna, Wagner himself proclaimed her to 1»h the world's greatest prima donna,who stands alone as the most satisfactory rep resentative in such parts as Isolde, Eliza beth, Ortrtid and Bi unhilde. Materna.more than any other singer, knows how to invest the music of the Meister with all its charac teristic charm of melody. The engagement is for one evening only. # » * The OurHF.t M—This is a gala week at the Orpheum, for the present bill is the very best that has ever been presented. The Wiltons are two of the cleverest triple horizontal bar performers and comedians iv tlie country. Kossley Bros., the Rollick ing Irish comedians, give it most enjoyable act. The A thos family are a strong com bination of athletes. I Mama Bros, keep the house in an uproar with their music and fun. The Garrisons do a captivating travesty turn. Pantzer Bros, are the most wonderful equilibrists and acrobats ever seen in l.os Angeles; and the Friedlander Bros., with their laughable musical act, conclude the excellent program, An Inconsistent Newspaper The vigorous editorial in the Sunday Times on Sunday observance is worth reading and preserving as an example of human inconsistency. Here is a concern which, to a larger extent than any other in this city, street cars and railroads except ed, breaks the Puritan Sunday. Not a minute passes from the time the clock strikes 112 haturday night until tbe corre- I ■ponding period Monday that unnecessary work is r.ot done by the direction of the Times--Mirror company. I Bay unnecessary work, because it is possible to conceive of life in comparative comfort without a Sun day, or for that matter a Monday Times either. Yet the Times editor, who works his force every minute possible during the "American Sabbath," wants a law to keep other people from earning their bread on that day. And this paper, which is under the con trol of the past grand master of cranks, ; talks about objection to purely religious j legislation as solely tho work of cranks. : By all means pass a Sunday law, but stop eveiy wheel in the Times-Mirror office, in ' eluding those in the editor's head, on the llrst day of the week. The paternal legis ] latino asked for will not be without good : results if the vulgar slush and syndicate | trash printed by the Times Sunday and Monday is promptly suppressed. T. R. A.
