Although no public notice, such as
would ba given by filing the Instrument
for record, has been had, it Is apparent
that the distinguished leader of the
third house at Washington, Mr. Collis
P. Huntington, has an ironclad mort
gage on about nine members of the sen
ate committee on commerce.
At a late hour last evening The Herald
received a special dispatch announc
ing that substantially, the same harbor
proposition telegraphed so temptingly
by Congressman MaLachlan has been
agreed on by the senate commit tea The
latter will recommend that the govern
ment undertake tha construction of a
breakwater at a cost of $3,000,000 at
Santa Monica, or more strictly ex
pressed, Port Los Angeles, and that
$392,000 be expended" to complete the in
ner harbor at San Pedro. When lt is
born* ln mind that tha Port Los An
geles project has never been asked for
by the people of this city and vicinity,
that no government engineers have ever
testified ln its favor, that its sponsors
outside of Santa Monica have been only
Southern Pacific officials and Southern
Pacific sympathizers, barring a few In
significant exceptions, and that on the
other hand the people of this locality
have ln various ways expressed their
overwhelming preference for San Pedro
aa the alte for a deep-sea harbor, and
that three different boards of govern
ment engineers have spoken for the lat
ter against the other scheme, lt is plain
that some extraordinary influence has
been brought to bear to bring about the
result that the Herald regretfully
places before its readers today.
There is' but one recourse left the
people, and that Is to appeal to the
senate Itself. If the right kind of
work Is done on the floor of the United
States senate Mr. Huntington's mort
gage can be made valueless. The Issue
rests with Senator White. He can en
compass Mr. Huntington's defeat if he
tries. Will Me try?
A regulation plea of the silver-stand
ard people is for a restoration of the
"conditions prior to '73." They constant
ly buttress their appeal for the enact
ment of a law providing for the free
coinage of silver at the ratio of IS to 1
In the face of the fact that the com
mercial ratio of silver and gold is near
32 to 1, with the proposition that as the
dollar dropped from coinage was a 16
--to-1 dollar, the silver dollar again coined
■hould be of the same sort. Adherence
to this idea of course Involves absolute
ly ignoring the obvious fact that thi
conditions of production are decidedly
•llfTerent today from what they were
"prior to '73." In a recent speech, ex-
Speaker Crisp said: "We say, testore the
conditions prior to '73. -Try it and see if
tree coinage doesn't restore the value
of sllvei* bullion to that of gold."
The New York World furnishes a
compact aud convincing answer to the
Georgia silverite. After asking "what
were the conditions prior to '73?" it pro
ceeds to re)>ly as follows:
, Ths stiver protraction of the coun
try "prior to '73" had ranged frojn noth
ing in X 834 to $500,000 in 1858, and by
gradual stages up to $28,750,000 ln 1872.
That was. the very largest product ever
recorded "prior to '73," and an ounce
of Ahe silver wai then worth about $1.30.
Since that time the silver product has
enormously increased, amounting in
1892 to $73,697,000 .and the price of a fine
ounce of silver is now naturally only
68 cents. We say "naturally' because
while the- silver -product has more than
doubled since that time the production
of gold -trad -actually fallen off up to
1592, and has Increased since only slight
ly as compared with the silver increase.
In other words, the gap between gold
and silver, which has grown since 1573.
represents with almost math matlcal
accuracy the change that has occurred
in their relative annual production, ln
1573 Mb produced almost exactly the
same amount In value of gold and silver.
We now produce double as much silver
as gold, and by natural laws of supply
and demand th,e bullion.in a silver dollar,
which was worth rather more than a
gold dollar in 1873, is worth about half
as much as a gold dollar now.
"Can Mr. Crisp suggest a way to 're
store the conditions prior to '73' in this
respect ? Shall we bury the hundreds of
millions of silver produced in the mean
time and close up mines enough to re
duce production by one-half for the
future? 1= there any other conceivable
way in wl th to 'restore the conditions
prior to '73 V
There t ere other 'conditions prior
to '73' which may deserve consideration
hereafter. For the pre/sent the prob
lem of undoing the mighty silver pro
duction of twenty-three years and
checking the present productiveness of
the mines may furnish adequate occupa
tion for Mr. Crisp's abilities."
Whatever may be said of the remain
der of the state. Southern California, at
leas*, rides on the top wave of prosper
ity. The conversion of grain fields' into
orchards and vineyards keeps on apace,
the development of villages into towns
and towns into cities continues, while
the Influx of capital and people from
the alternately snow-blanketed and
sun-baked east Is greater than at any
other normal period of this section's his
tory. Confidence ln our possibilities
and prosnects is stronger than ever be
fore, and Southern California is being
liberally accorded the recognition she
so richly merits. Her superiority over
other parts of the great American union
has been accentuated by this past win
ter, which has afflicted every part but
this with the elements of destruction.
Everywhere except here the enterprise
of capital and the industry of labor have
been robbed and discouraged by frost,
cyclone, deluge or drought. Here alone
nature has smiled with almost uniform
kindness upon the efforts of man to build
for himself and posterity. While our
brethren of the northern part of tlie
state are doomed to suffer losses in their
fruit crops because of recent weather
happenings, the crops of Southern Cal
ifornia will nearly ail be up to stand
ard, and the most important of these,
the orange crop, will prove exceptionally
satisfactory to the growers. Doth the
yield and the prices obtained for it have
been gratifying to tlie producers. Thus
i far more than 5000 carloads have been
shipped from this section, and by the
time the season closes there will have
been beyond doubt a total of 6000 car
loads, in round numbers, sent away.
These signify returns to the Orangemen
of about $2,000,000, and as yet we have
only seen the beginning of the orange
industry in Southern California..
Incidentally it may ba remarked that
the orange-growers of California this
year is happy and prosperous, without
the aid or intervention of the United
States government to any considerable
extent. He is not the bcnoticlary of a
bounty or of a tariff that protects, al
though he is carrying some of the bur -
dens that protection imposes on the
farmers and fruit-growers of the coun
try in the guise of a blessing. What the
San Francisco Examiner has to say
along this line in the course of an edi
torial on the condition of the orange in
dustry of the state, is peculiarly apropos.
That paper says:
"Perhaps our protectionist friend
may permit us to call their attention to
the fact that they were trying to start
a high tariff crusade among the orange
growers only a few weeks ago on tho
ground that the Wilson law left them
exposed to the incursions of the pauper
citrus fruits of Europe. Now we find
that notwithstanding the Wilson law,
or because of it, as protectionists would
have claimed if it had been their meas
ure, the orange-raisers have enjoyed
the most prosperous season in the his
tory of their Industry—a history that
includes nearly four years of McKin
leyism. Tariff campaign documents for
southern consumption will have to be
constructed with considerable! skill thio
The Times of yesterday paid the fol
lowing graceful tribute to The Herald's
Herald, but intermitted any mention of
The Herald's arch—the most effective
Fiesta display In the city. In its refer
ence to the woman's brigade that rode
with the caballeros, the Times says:
In the midst of this brigade rode An
na Kessler, daughter of W. J. Kessler.
From the tribunes to the end of the
route she called forth thunders of ap
This bonnie little rider was dressed in
a cavalier suit of brown corduroy, her
pretty mop of yellow hair iloating over
her shoulders from beneath her broad,
plumed hat. She rose standing in the
rose-wreathed saddle, and, when the
troop halted before the throne she
bounded lightly to the ground, knelt in
the dust and saluted the queen by re
moving her hat with true knightly
grace. Then, springing up, she whis
pered a word to her horse, and, in an
instant, the intelligent animal had low
ered his head, and raising it again as
quickly flung the little rider into her
saddle by a quick movement of the
powerful 'neck against which she
leaned. In another moment she was
again standing erect and bowing low
to the queen, she rode on amid the
cheers of the audience, delighted with
the clever trick of horsemanship so
gracefully done by a mere child.
Once again the hoodoo of the Times is
evidence. The latset Victim ot the
baleful effects of Its advocacy is the
people's harbor. The result long feared
by those that have watched closely the
insistence with which the Times asso
ciated itself with tbe San Pedro cause
has at laM o»ra)av-j-«aM* Pedro has been
relegated to the rear by the senate com
merce committee. Hereafter it should
be made a condition whenever the peo
ple undertake any Bcheme of public im
portapce that, .the Times be compelled
to either remain Moot from or actively
oppose It. The lalterj would be prefera
ble, tf The Herald had been 1« ft alone

been more ln accord with the popular
wish. „ , „.

The r*ew. T York Herald hits the nail
of $ne " hack right on
the"4Sead in the fqhowing:
"In the present emergency the peo
pie, unless repelled, would naturally
turn to the Democracy for relief from
the woes of potst and prospective per
nicious monetary legislation. The aath
erirTg forces of pseudo-Republicartsin
and Socialism, flying the defattful al
lied flags of 'high protection l - Bin 'free
silver,' must at once be attasatjga with
Napoleonic skill and Impetuosity."
Well, the Are department turned out
Wednesday, and the town neither
burned down nor burned up. It turned
out Just as The Herald predicted, all
right. The Herald is always right.
Democratic Victory—How?
He would be a blind man who could
not see that the chances of a Demo
cratic victory this year have distinctly
Improved since the beginning of the
year. What are the conditions on which
those chances can be seized? We have
seen no sounder, clearer or more com
prehensive statement of them than that
made by Mr. Edward M. Shepard at the
recent meeting of the Democratic party
in Kings county. He defined them as
"The changing public sentiment now
gives genuine promise that If the Demo
cratic party shall be true to its own tra
ditional policy; if, without makeshifts
and without time-serving, lt shall de
clare itself unqualiilodly in favor of a
sound, honest gold dollar. In favor of an
honest and thorough trial of the Wilson
ta:iff law, with the hope—and. more,
with the belief—that its results shall in
duce the people to demand still further
reductions in oppressive and corrupting
taxation; if the Democratic party shall
nominate for president a man who. be
yond any doubt, stands for these things,
and stands, besides, for a prudent, scru
pulous, magnanimous, peace-loving,
but not war-fearing, temper in our re
lations with other nations, for honest
and efficient executive administration,
for a real and sympathetic observance
of civil service laws, for the genuine
Democracy of Jefferson and Seymour
aud Tllden, we may well expect to suc
ceed. We shall thus deserve success.
And that, surely, is the only course by
which we Democrats mean to command
Mr. Shepard is a very serious and con
vinced Democrat. Though Mr. Seymour
stood for the presidency on a platform
that advocated the payment of bonds
In legal tender notes and Mr. Tilden on
one that demanded the repeal of the
specie resumption act, their personal
views were as sound as Mr. Shepard'S
own. and on that account he can take a
Democrat's pride iv citing their "fron
tline Democracy" as among tho condi
tions of success. He does not forget,
however, that In ibis crisis of the his
tory of the country and the party even
a candidate as sound and sincere us Mr.
Seymour or Mr. Tilden cannot safely
or honorably be put forward on a plat
form as shaky as those on which they
stood. This year the party cannot trust
to a good candidate and a weak plat
form, or a good platform and a weak
candidate. Roth must be of the best
and the strongest;, or defeat will surely
follow.—Now York Times.
The Colonel's Cranium
Colonel If. G. Otis still shouts aloud
for MeKinley for president, much to the
detriment of the Ohio statesman.—

The Los Angeles Times finds fault
with the head of this paper and advises
its removal. Such a head, however, is
far better than to be In the predicament
of the Times editor and have no head

The Express claims that a Times edi
torial by h. G. Otis has done Los Ange
les incalculable harm by an indiscretion,
ill defeating appropriations for both
San Pedro and Santa Monica. Otis has a
great head. —People's Advocate.
That's what's the matter with Colonel
Harrison Gray Otis. His head is so bad

Mckinley's Consistency
Major McKinley's personal organ In
Chicago prints three extracts from a
speech made hy its idol at Nlles, <">., in
August. 1891, to prove that tile major
is unalterably opposed to the free
coinage of silver and In favor'of the sin
gle gold standard. The personal organ
Should have a care lest it prove too
much. If -MeKinley stands now upon
his utterances in Nlles In 1891, he Is op
posed to his own Ohio platform, and he
is as obnoxious as any gold bug can be

lately greeted Dr. uepew with loud
hurrahs tor "MeKinley and free silver."
The major's organ must steer carefully
or it n ill spoil the effect his straddling
Ohio platform was intended to produce
in the states where the people worship
the little silver gods of Demetrius.—
Chicago Chronicle.
Whot the A. P A. nay Do
An interesting complication in the
canvass for the Republican presidential
nomination Is suggested by the possible
candidacy of Congressman Linton on an
A. P. A. platform. Should Mr. Linton
enter the lists there is no doubt he would
add a picturesque feature to the contest,
and make an already acrimonious strug
gle a much more bitterone. "While there
is no probability that the American Pro
tective association could put up a candi
date at this late day who could win tlie
nomination, it could so divide the forces
of candidates already in the field as to
make results more problematical and
confusing. It might also affect the cam
paign so as to secure the defeat ofthe
nominee in November.—Pittsburg Dis
Silver Straddle at St. Louis
It is predicted ln various quarters
that the St. Louis convention will
straddle silver and try to draw atten
tion from that Issue by waging a hot
tariff fight. But another straddle
would only make the issue more promi
nent. It will have to be squarely faced
In this presidential year, however dis
agreeable lt may be. One campaign
may not settle it definitely, but it will
stay at the front until it reaches a defi
nite settlement, and its disturbing in
fluence will Increase with every effort
to dodge or straddle It.—Washington
A Railway Harbor
i Referring to the Southern California
harbor question, the Oakland Enquirer
very properly remarks that whenever a
railroad company is going to derive all
the benefit from the deepening of a har
bor or the construe! ion of a shelter from
I storms, that corporation should pay the
j cost. It has no right to ask the govern
| ment of the United States to make a
harbor for its exclusive use. There is
nothing wrong in wanting a harbor of
its own, but it is wrong to ask the gov
ernment to pay for it.—Riverside Press.

A Ne?hbor*ood Pow
Sirs. Maggie Frediani was taken Into
custody yesterday on a warrant sworn to
by i. N". w llsoti, who charged her with a
misdemeanor, Mrs. Frediani and Wilson
»re next door neighbors tin Beaudry av
emie. near the Sisters' hospital, but have
been at oitts for some time. Her chickens
are alleged in have trespassed 011 Wilson's
plaei . and she says he wrung their necks
and threw them over the fence into her
.'.ai.i. This of course angered her, and she
proceeded to tear off the wire screen on the
fence dividing their properties, claiming
ii-ui it was on ground belonging 10 her.
T or this Wjlsnn swore to the complaint and
uaused lit: arrest, nut.- r Robblns went

iSariy yWttlrday morning a colored wo
man named Jet mi" Richardson came to the
receiving hospital for treatment, having
sustained several severe scalp wounds,
which she said were inflicted by a mulatto
named Clifford Sears. Tn the afternoon
she swore to a complaint charging Sears
with battery, and a warrant was issued for
his arrest. The Richardson woman lives
at 614 blast Fourth street and names sev
eral other parties who reside at 438 Ala

Secretary Carlisle's address before the
1 Ihlcago vvorklngmen last evening is a good
specimen of the kind of argument that
should be heard in every part of the coun
try, if we are ever to get a square cur
ltni'y. With bis eustoinarv clearness and
pungencj lie Illustrated the old truth that
Hie laborer is the first man to be hurt by
a depreciated currenoy and tlie last man
to adjust himself to it. Especially skillful
was bis turning tlie Hank of the latest sil
ver onset—the Oriental bogy. We cannot
long compete with China and Japan, say
Ihe silverites. unless we go 10 the silver
basis. Thoy ore underselling us now. and
will do so more extensively every year un
less we get off this terrible bold standard.
Wnrkhigmen ought to understand that
they will soon he out of a job if something
is net speedily done for silver. Mr. Car
lisle's answer is crushing. Speaking only
from the .standpoint of the laboring man,
lie affirms truly that this is only a thinly
disguised proposition to reduce wages one
half, fn other words, in order to compete
with Japan, the Philadelphia hlmetalltsts
say we must pay only Japanese wages.
1 >f coin-ss they do not say this openly; they
talk learnedly of an international par of
exchange and a broader standard of value;
but wdiat their proposals really mean is
payment, of wages In currency depreciated
one-half. If it is necessary to reduce wages
one-half, the reduction might bet ter be en
dured 011 the gold standard. Then a man
would at least know what he had got. what
his wages would buy; but his silver pay
would fluctuate from day to day. This
statement knocks all the remaining stuf
fing out of the Oriental bogy.—New York
Evening Post.
An English phrenologist who has exam
ined trie tiead of J-lmperor "William TI says
that there is nothing unusual about it.
"It is," lie said, "a medium head of the
military type, such as can be found by the
score in the army. The bumps of self-love
and combativeness are abnormall devel
oped. He will never let himself be stopped
by an obstacle. There is no power on earth
that could exercise the least pressure orr
bim. His self-love is so great that it would
not surprise me if he should proclaim him
self infallible. He would be perfectly sin
cere ln so doing."
"Courting sticks" were tn use ln New
England about 100 years ago. They were
long wooden tubes through which lovers
could whisper to each other when the pres
ence of other persons interfered with the
secret exchange of endearing expressions.
The accent is on the last syl
lable—don't say Man'tell. It

name of the best cigar of its
kind mispronounced.
