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.
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
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

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
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
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

Senator Push of Alabama, seems dis

Spain talks about annihilating our mer

Thk Kentucky legislature has settled the
senatorial contest by adjourning and leav

the aid of six-shooters.

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

Wasting Time In Searching for the News
In Back-Number New spapers Ihe Herald
Preienta It All In Compact Form
Life is short and uncertain, and no one
nowadays can afford the time necessary to
search for and strip the actual news from
tbe verbiage with whicli it is associated in
the ordinary blanket sheet. 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.
This great journal prints the nows. It
is never scooped. In its columns may be
found the world's happenings presented in
such a concise and condensed form that it
is a pleasure and not a pain to peruse
them. In The Hkhald you will glean all
the news in a few minutes. Compare it
with any other California newspaper in
the price and the quality of its contents
and general makeup.
Why pay nearly twice the amount for an
inferior journal? On and after April Ist
The Herald will cost but 50 cents per
month, in Los Angeles and Southern Cali
fornia towns, delivered by carrier, or $5
per year by mail. Branch offices are es
tablished in all the important towns in
Southern California, from which it is de
livered daily by carrier. If such an agency
is not convenient, send 45 ana receive it
every day by mail for one year.
This reduction, which will make The
Hi- ha t.p the cheapest morning daily news
paper on the Pacific coaat, will go into
effect the first of April.
This is an era of cheap newspapers
throughout the east, and the proprietors of
The Herald have determined to give the
people of Southern California all the ad
vantages enjoyed by eastern readers. The
Sunday editions of The Herald will be
especially notable and excellent, and will
challenge comparison with those issued by
any other western newspaper.

| Among the many delightful affairs of
j the winter none wore more charmingly ar
i raDged than the afternoon given yesterday
j by Mrs. E. 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.

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

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-

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

these days there are very few who can

Mr. James O'Neill is said to enact Vir

of the great traditions of the character and
with thorough skill, grace and sympathetic

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.

to 1»h the world's greatest prima donna,who
stands alone as the most satisfactory rep
resentative in such parts as Isolde, Eliza

than any other singer, knows how to invest
the music of the Meister with all its charac

is for one evening only.

The vigorous editorial in the Sunday

reading and preserving as an example of
human inconsistency. Here is a concern

Yet the Times editor, who works his

other people from earning their bread on
