Write the Truth as yon ace Its Fight the Wrong as yon And tt: Pafe> Heat all the News, and Trust th* ■Teat to the Judgment of the People WEDNESDAY, MARCH ax, 1896. What a long time it is going to take this congress to tell what it has not done! If the weather we are having means anything, it is that that the summer this year is altogether too previous. The weather clerks will be expected to put it back in line and make it wait for its turn. Lovfrn, the leader of the gang that recently attempted to hold up a train in Tulare county, was probably in ■pired to become his own executioner by reading of the bungling work indulged in by the official kind. He wanted the job well done. Th» proceedings of yesterday's New Tork Republican convention plainly show that the delegation that will be consigned to St. Louis from that state will be ticket ed "Levi P. Morton." Senator Piatt ruled the roost, and the McKinley chicken found very little space for its feet. According to the news from Minneap olis, the presidential boom of Senator Davis has been sold to McKinley. The senator has withdrawn from the race be cause the districts from which he expected endorsement failed to yield the favor. Consequently Minnesota's delegation to Bt. Louis will be for Mac. That tariff fat seems to be getting in Its work. Clacs Sprickf.ls says that he has no senatorial aspirations, but is devoted to the production of the thing that robs coffee of Its bitterness, soothes the tea of commerce aud takes the jagged edges off the toddy— •ugar. Well, if he is not a candidate for senator or governor some other member of the Spreckels family is. That barrel is not on tap for the fun of the thing. The difference between the cost of a lo comotive now and during the war amounts to a young fortune. The best locomotives now will not exceed $10,000 in cost. In 1864 the same kind would have cost $25, --000 to $27,0(10. The federal government did some locomotive buying during the late differences between Dixie and Yankee dom, and invested in fifty engines at $27, --000 each. < lood car wheels ten years ago cost $25 each: $14 50 apiece now is the price, while "befo' de wah" it sometimes took $110 to get one. So you see that wheat, silver and the United States senate are not tbe only things that have fallen in the last twenty-five years. The German Royalist statesmen seem intensely angered at the Socialist leaders, but as the latter heartily reciprocate the feeling, things should be even up between them. The Socialists are charged with having mixed truth with lies. Well, that is certainly better than furnishing the lies undiluted. And it is only fair to say that the autocracy that rules Germany has mixed truth not only with lies but with tyranny, injustice and spoliation of the masses in the name of tbe fatherland. The Socialists are only 'prentice hands at deception and duplicity, and they are em harassed in their course by a disposition to adhere to principle, ihe autocrats are not bothered that way. Ever since the repeal of the McKinley revenue deterrent and trade preventive the people have been liberally dosed with editorial and oratorical disquisitions on tbat act as a revenue producer and gold reserve bulwark. Its merits as the latter The Herald has quite recently discanted on, showing that the first bond issue of the present administration was made six months befote the law went out of exist ence. And its value as a revenue pro ducer the Dcs Moines Leader disposes of in the following pithy manner: The speaker or newspaper asserting that the decline in eovernment revenues came In with the Wilson bill perverts plain facta. When the McKinley bill was passed the surplus in the treasury was $105,000, --000; after it hail been a year in operation the surplus was $M 7,000,000: at the end •f the second year it was $2,000,000, and after the end of the third year the deficit was $80,0011,0(10. These are the figures given by so leading a Republican authority aa Senator Sherman. THE BOODLE CAMPAIGN McKinley's fat frying campaign is not being entirely unobserved by momb3rs of bla own party. A few days since Thk Herald adverted to the remarks of somo of the Republican leaders regarding tbe methods the Ohio candidate is employing to raise the funds necessary to carry his cause in the next Republican national con vention, publishing at the same time an excerpt from a pointed letter written by Senator Cullom of Illinois, Senator Chandler has also been aroused to protest ■gainst the deals and dickers that the tariff reformer from the Buckeye state is making with the beneficiaries of protection. Benator Chandler is not noted as a paragon •f political morality and the objections he flies to McKinley's paddling tour are not inspired by any detestation of the im morality of the thing, but by a fear that it ia ail bad politics. He has spoken his mind with a freedom that has made the McKinley managers feel uncomfortable, fe> say the least. Congressman ttrosvenor of Ohio ia one of the latter, and he had the nerve to recently attempt a defense of the McKinley scheme of assessing the tariff pets. But the explanation failed to ex plain to the satisfaction of Chandler, and the New Hampshire senator comes back with the following: "I was very cautious in speaking about Major McKinley, but it does certainly seem to me that he is in the hands of un scrupulous managers. They say that this year the Republicans can elect a yellow tlog if we nominate one. At the same time look at the situation. If Major McKinley is nominated we shall have to meet the charge that we fried the fat out of the man ufacturer* in the last campaign: that he fried the fat out of them again to secure his nomination; that he is continuing to fry the fat to buy his election, and that as a result he will pay his political debts with a high tariff bill framed solely in the in terests of the manufacturers. With such charges as these to meet on the stump, the campaign on the part of the Republicans will be defensive instead of offensive.'' MILLS' RESOLUTIONS In the business of projecting Cuban reso lutions Senator Mills takes the ribbon. Whatever the resolutions heretofore con sidered by the senate and house lacked in radicalism and fierceness, those proposed by the Texan senator furnish. With char acteristic bluntness and directness Senator Mills gets right down to business, and as one reads the resolutions he has submitted the gleam of bayonets can be seen between the lines and the smoke of battlo scented as it curie up from the fiery words. Their adoption by congress would be considered by Spain as equivalent to a declaration of war. Senator Mills has enjoyed the reputation of being immeasurably superior to the av erage member of the upper house of con gress. He has been looked on by a large section of the American peopio as a states man of exceptionally clear thought and sound conclusions, with a more than usu ally accurate conception of the interests of the people of the United States and the du ties of the federal government. His Cu ban resolution outburst will not benefit his prestige as a public man. On the con trary, it will impair that prestige. It will have the effect of associating him, in the minds of thoughtful citizens, with the jin goistic politicians who seem convinced that it is the function of the United States congress to legislate for all the world, and the mission of the United States government to find a row. There is less excuse for Mills acting like a demagogue and a fool than there is for men of the Lodge and Morgan stripe thus indulging. There is indeed little probability of his resolutions being adopted, but his many admirers will regret that he has fallen a victim to the epidemic of tjuixotieism that seems raging in the halls of congress. It can be said, however, that the Mills resolutions mean something and that if this country really considers itself in duty bound to help the Cubans win independ ence, regardless of cost or complication, they should be adopted. In brief, they de clare that Spain should be asked to grant self-government to Cuba, and that in the event of her failing to comply with this request, that the president of the United States should be directed to "take posses sion of the island of Cuba with the mili tary ar.d naval forces of the United Slates and hold the same until the people of Cuba can organize a government deriving its just powers from the consent of the gov erned, and arm and equip such military forces as may be necessary to protect them from invasion." Beside these, the resolu tions over which the conference committees of the senate and house have been strug gling seem tame and docile, although not reckoned so when they made their appear ance. The most extreme proposition in these other resolutions was contained in the house set, which threatened interven tion in the event of such action being neces sary to protect American interests. Mills does not threaten but promises interven tion, and not on the score of American in terests, but on that of Cuban freedom. AT THE THEATERS Lcs Angeles Theater. — Morrison's grand production of Faust, the famous poem that has taught the world so much goodness, which shines as a luminous star from the firmament of the world's litera ture, and in which Goethe, Germany's sublime writer, tixed a sermon stronger than the pulpit can teach, is to appear at the l.os Angeles theater three nights, Thursday. Friday and Saturday of this week, aud Saturday matinee. The grand opera of Faust is sublime, its music fires the very soul, the stage pictures are grand to behold; but notwithstanding the grandeur with which the opera has been produced it must be said, and candid ly admitted, that the real beauty of tbe poet's ideas was left to the dramatist. The sense of feeling, the wondrous thought, the real strength and meaning are revealed most impressively in the drama. Morrison's production is heralded as something grand and gorgeous, and every expectation will be fulfilled, all promises carried out. Not only will it satisfy, but it surprises. The story is one that carries tiio auditor into other spheres. It makes him think of other than worldly things. Ue realizes during its progress that there is a hereafter, and ere the curtain falls he is convinced, be he a Christian or atheist. The piece is mounted with the most mag nificent scenic embellishment). Startling scenes that make the poor miserable mor tal feel his weakness when compared to the power ef the immortal come in quick succession, and as the curtain falls for the last time the sinner in the audience starts as if aroused from some dreadful dream—a dream that has made him a wiser man. He remembers that he, poor mortal, is like the crawling, helpless worm 'neath the implement iv the yeoman's hand raised to strike it, and end the only life it ever knew. Again, he is forced to beiieve. whether he will or not, that some future awaits the sinner of the world. For this reason Morrison's Faust is a worthy, moral lesson as well as a gorgeous pro duction of dramatic and scenic art. In obtaining the fine scenic effects the power of electricity is taken advantage of. Tiiere are many electric surprises and mechanical ncvelties, making it as a whole, one of ttie most elaborate and brilliant productions ever witnessed. * ts * Tup.

THE POLITE WORLD One of the most graceful acts of courtesy of the winter social gatherings was the re ception yesterday afternoon given by a number of young society buds to the Stan ford Mandolin and Glee club at the resi dence of Mrs. Frank Burnett on West Bea con street, who hospitably threw open her home for the occasion. The hostesses were the Misses Genevieve Smith, Beatrice Chandler, May Corson. Hadte Libby, Lou Winder, and Harding of Oakland. Shortly after 11 oclock the guests of honor arrived in a body, and as they drew tip in front of the house they presented a gay appearance with their light straw hats with bands of red. The university colore were carried out in the charming decoration of the rooms, and everywhere the bright crimson hue was in evidence. The balustrade of the hall was interwoven with ivy geranium picked out and finished with red satin ribbon poinsettas. Large bowls of red roses graced the drawing room, and start ing from one corner of the book shelf and ending at the mantel were graceful strands of smilax. The strains of War ren's orchestra penetrated all the rooms and was enjoyed as well from a small side porch, where punch was served, and which hail been made most attractive with a cov ering of pepper boughs and a network of Hanksia roses. Luxurious rugs and comfortable divans made the spot so tempting one was loath to tear themselves away. Red carnations adorned the dining room. Some of the fragrant blossoms had been woven into a large "S" that reposed over the door. There was an inviting table to one side of the room and from large bows of red satin ribbon at the corners, the ends were carried with effect to the wall. Red carnations occupied the center of the table and silver candelabra red shaded completed a most pleasing ensemble. The young ladies were assisted in receiv ing the many guests that were present be tween the hours of 3 and 6 by Mmc?. Frank Burnett, Shirley Ward, Barber, Cor son, Chandler, Ezra Stimson, W. G. Coch ran and Miss Alden. The delicious refreshments served were in charge of Christopher. The guests were welcomed by two dainty little maids at the door gowned in University colors, the Misses Lucille Chandler and Kitty Mcin tosh. The guests of honor were the Messrs. King, Schlack. Pinkham, Magee, McGuire, Sutherland, Bush, Young, Bartholomew, Hinsdale, Cochran, Abbott, McGrew, Mc- Neil, Decker, Schneider, Sewall, Kaufman, MrChesney, Welch, Wells, Dillon, Wilson, Code. Bsll at Turnveraln Hslt There was a brilliant ball given at Turn verein hall last night under the auspices of the German Ladies' Benevolent society. By the large crowd present there was no question as to the financial success of the entertainment. There were four or five hundred guests present to enjoy the danc ing and the elaborate supper that was pro vided. The occasion was the fifteenth an niversary of the association and proved a great success. The hall was bright with white and red bunting that draped the balcony. The facing of the stage was a mass of callas, and the same flowers were used to good advantage elsewhere in the hall. Surmounting the whole above the stage were the letters D. F. U. V. emblazoned in red and white lights. The evening was under the direc tion of Mmes. Brode, Johannsen, Grosser and Merz, assisted by the following com mittees : Reception committee—L. Winter. L.

A Delightful Evening Minn Alden entertained very delightfully last night by entertaining a number of her friends at tbe Los Angeles theater, where the party enjoyed the Stanford Mandolin Glee club, concluded by a very appetizing supper at the hostess' cosy home on Twen ty-third street. The house was embow ered in flowers and the rooms were all en fete. Banksla roses fell gracefully from out of vases in the hall and the same dainty blossoms framed the doorway of the drawing room. Fink was used al most exclusively in here, but the dining room honored the Stanford University col ors. Everywhere were dark red roses and carnations of the same color. Tbe supper was served from small tables placed about the room, and a more charming evening couldn't have been planned. Those who oc cupied the two loges at the theater were: The Misses Maria and Theo Burnett, Bea trice Chandler Allen of San Francisco Bessie llonsall, Lizzie Lewis, Bessie Ellis, Georgia Knight, May Corson, Florence Silent Hard ing and the hostess. The party were joined after the concert at the house by the Stan ford Mandolin Glee Club and the Misses Sara Goodrich, the Misses Wellborn, Gen evieve Smith, Georgia Caswell, Lou Win der.

The soft tones of lavender were carried out not only 'in the esthetic decorations, but the different delicious courses that were 9erved. A round silver-mounted mirror occupied the center of the table and was imbedded in a mass of maidenhair fern. Ou the mirror was a tall cutglase vase filled with purple tleur de lis, and in cor responding color were strung French bows at either end of the table. Caught in the loops were clusters of the same delicate flowers that formed the center piece. Near these were silver candelabra holding lav ender candles. The whole formed a scene of beauty and was presided over by a very lovely and charming hostess. | Those present wore: limes. Hancock " Pure and Sure."

Brave boys and fair girls, a few proud parents, ar.d all friends constituted a very bright and enthusiastic audience. The college colors were predominant in every direc tion. The stage, orchestra and boxes had been beautifully decorated with carna tions, geranium and smilax. A couple of the loges contained a bevy of buds, look ing charming in white with crimson sashes, and this was the Mecca of the boys when not engaged on the stage. So attractive were the social features of the occasion that the musical part of the entertainment has almost to take a second place. One of the great advantages of mandolin and guitar music is that conversation does not seriously interfere witli its enjoyment, and the marches and medleys played were very pleasant. The program, however, included some excellent work on the part of both clubs, the which bespoke assiduous practice and commendable zeal. The blending of voices with the light strings was very effective, particularly in the Spanish Students* song and the captivating Ma Angeline.' The last named, which is said to be in reality the result of the collaboration of a local newspaper man and a musician, was rapt urously received. Both organizations did capital work on their own account. The most commend able feature of the glee club's singing was the excellently distinct articulation, every word being pronounced with perfect clear ness. Courtship, Fa's Baby Boy, Wing Tee Wee, Phyllis Dyes Her Tresses Black, a medley of college songs, and My Old Kentucky Home, were amongst their most successful selections. Stanford can boast a born humorist in Charles I. Dillon. Last night he seemed equally at home as an Irishman, a colored gent or an English costermonger. The Irishman's narrative of the discovery of America esnecial'y pleased the house, and Mr. Dillon Was subjected to a succession of recalls. Phil F. Abbott was the soloist of the evening. He has a pleasing bari tone voice and sang the cavatina from Faust and Rubinstein's Azra. Among those who occupied boxes and loges were: Mr. and Mrs. Frank Rule in a loge with friends and Misses Ethel Mul lins, Haskins, Julia Winston, Messrs. Warren Carhart. Will Innes and Karl Klokke enjoyed it from a box. Another pleasant party that occupied two boxes were Mr. and Mrs. Nat Wilshire, Misses Marix, Goodrich, Hattie Kimball, Messrs Arthur Schumacher, Fred Flint, W. J, Walters. Mrs. A. l.ankershim chaperoned the Misses Van Nuys and the Misses Violet and Beatrice Wigmore. Stantord Boys at High .School The Stanford Glee and Mandolin club were at the High school yesterday morn ing and favored about 600 students in the auditorium with several selections. On leaving the Stanford boys gave a rousing yell and the High school responded with a good strong voice. Many of the pupils in the afternoon enjoyed an excellent lecture by Mrs. Caswell at the Marlborough school on "Grecian Art". The many beautiful pictures were especially enjoyed. The First Jailer G. T). W. Robinson, who was buried on Monday from bis late residence at 321 North Hill street, was a pioneer. He came to California in '4!t and was the first jailer that this city ever had, being appointed to that office in 1851. He was a native of Louisville, Kentucky, and lived to the age of 87 years. Among the pallbearers at his funeral were a number of his old com rades and fellow '4Pers. One of his daugh ters married W. H. Cline, the well known detective and officer. Ed Stokes and Charles Traver also were sons-in-law of the deceased.

A kerosene lamp exploded while no one was in the place, but the fiames were extinguished without the assistance of an engine, only nominal damage being sustained. Kept "Late and Unusual Hours" Officer Walker sent Annie Dwyer and May Edwards in to the police station at 10:110 last night for being vagrants. Annie is a blushing blonde and wept profusely over her sad fate. Her "friend" came to the rescue and put up JIOO good, hard cash to secure her release.
