Write the Truth as you see It; Fight the Wrong as you 11 ml it; Pub lish all the News and Trust the Brent to the Judgment of the People SUNDAY, MAY 3, 1596 The McKinley bill festered the people for years. The people will never permit the "Bill" McKinley to become a sore ln the presidential chair. It is a blot upon our national honor to have the corrupting lobbyists at Washington acting in the capacity of paid "attorneys" for Huntington, vot ing the people's money for the private Interest of one citizen. In these degenerate days, in order to keep above suspicion, it is best not to be seen in company of Collis P. or any of his henchmen, especially if you happen to be a congressman or a sena tor. Explanations are sometimes em barrassing. Ohio has followed New York and adopted electrocution, which will go into effect on July Ist next. A great many Ohio people opposed the continu ance of the death penally in any form. There are others beside Ohio people op posed to death as an atonement for crime, for instance, those sentenced to it. In response to several inquiries, the Herald would state that the date set for the meeting of the Democratic state convention to select delegates to the . national convention and presidential electors is June lO.lisUti. The place of meeting is Sacramento. The Democrat ic nominations for the various congres sional districts of the Slate will be made at the same time. The Times yesterday said: "Osborne wants the delegates in the Seventy-fourth Assembly district to make him a delegate-at-large to the state convention, 'for tile purpose,' as one of his gophering gang indiscreetly divulged yesterday, of humiliating tho Times." " Well, the humiliation seems to have arrived on time and in most excellent shape for its work. Huntington is showing signs of a col lapse, mental and physical. Old age and worry are tugging at his vitals. The capitol sharks at Washington are aware of this, and the decrepit old man is be ing bled by them for all he will yield. These sharks see it is a last chance for a soft snap for them, and they Hatter and promise, and Collis shells out his shekels. The sixth age of man is upon him. The priceless value of the "Colonel's" opposition was once more made conspic uously apparent yesterday. For a long time the editor lias been pro moting the aspirations of Mr. H. Z. Osborne to oe a delegate-at-large to the Republican state convention by vigorously opposing him. The fruit of this opposition was yesterday evidenced ln Mr. Osborne's selection. The condi tion precedent to success seems to be the lively antagonism of the "boss as would be." Innocent, guileless woman has been discovered. It can no longer be said that man monopolizes the arts of de ception and cunning. At the Casino in New York a short time since one of the vigilant ushers picked up a solid silver article shaped like a smelling salts bot tle; with a silver headpiece at either end, instead of at the top only. By pressing a spring at one end a small, j globular vessel was disclosi d inside, | Just large enough to hold what would be ! considered one drink by a reasonable I being. It was empty, but the pleasing and inspiriting aroma that gushed told of its late contents. The other end contained—a dainty powder puff. RALLYING AROUND PROTEC TIONISM The San Francisco Call seems to have been attacked with an epidemic of pro tectionism. Its editorial columns have j been loaded down of late with . a series of labored efforts, in- t tended to prove that widespread ' and general despair feature the present condition of , the United States, and that iv the res- c toratlon ,of Republican tarih laws the 1 ■alvation of the country alone is to be ' found. Among other evidences of the J ruin that awaits the American people. It refers to the announcement that 1000 manufacturers are to attend the St. r Loui* convention, not as politicians, 1 s>ut a3 business men appealing Tor a Strong declaration if favor of a higher ; iroteciive tariff, and carrying with 3 I them the promise of their assistance to ) the Republican party If it will make the repeal of the present tariff law the is sue of the coming campaign. The Call has always been an advocate of protective tariffs, but its present noticeable ebullition of protectionism la 1 not because it is any more strongly ' Impressed with the value of or a the urgent necessity of intensify , Ing it. The Call's call with the trumpet of protection Is for the purpose i of concentrating the attention of Re publicans upon a question regarding • which it considers there can be no dan gerous differences of opinion among them and drawing them from the too ab- J sorbing consideration of another ques t tion that threatens to divide the Re ' publican party like the prow of an , ocean liner parts the billows of the sea —the free coinage of silver. To the free coinage of silver, at 16 to 1, the Call is ! apparently friendly, but it is not for 1 the proposition at the expense of the Republican party. The potency of the i free silver issue as a disinte grating force in the Republican party has dawned on the Spreck els" Journalistic venture, as It has on other organs of the same political faith, and the task of burying as ex peditiously and deeply as possible the much eulogized "dollar of our daddies'' —a dollar which, by the way, our dad ies saw precious little of—in the dust of tariffism has commenced. The delegation of 1000 manufacturers to St. Louis deserves the same sort of consideration that the migration of Mr. Huntington to the federal capital In be half of a railroad funding bill or a har bor appropriation should receive. The members of this delegation will be in spired by patriotism of an exceedingly local character, patriotism that wil! have its Alpha and Omega in a tender solicitude for their individual interests. They have reveled in the riches that were wrung through the machinery ot publio taxation, from the products of the people s labor, and they want more and their hope is that the Republican party will be able to feed their bottom less appetites with that more. The tear-embellished lamentation that a return to McKinleyism is imperatively needed to save the country from ever lasting damnation has about it the same flavor of reason that the plea that a re vival of antique methods of labor is es sential to increased production would have. It Is not justified by theory or fact. Neither the Call nor any other pro tectionist Journal can prove that tho masses wax rich by taxing themselves for the beneflt of a few, or that Industry is most encouraged when trade is most restricted. And the undeniable fact that it was during the existence of the apotheosis of protectionism, the McKin ley act, that mills, mines and furnaces closed down by the hundred; that banks and business houses of all kinds went into bankruptcy on a scale never before equaled in these United States, and the wages of hundreds of thousands of work ers were cut down or cut off, while since the repeal of that act the suspended in stitutions have reopened, business in all branches has steadily revived, and the reduced wages have been restored, should settle most effectually the ab surdity of the claim that through Mc- Kinleyism prosperity will be promoted. DIED IN JAIL William Kellen, an Insane Painter, Expires in His Cell Night Jailer Buchanan had his atten tion drawn at about 10:30 o'clock last night to the prisoners who are confined in the bottom tank of the county jail Several of them were tapping on the bars of the cage to attract attention, ami announced that one of the Inmates of he tank had just died. Upon investi gation, tltis was found to be true, and that William Kellen, confined awaiting transportation to the Highland asylum for the insane, had passsed away, lying in his bunk in the cell. Kellen was a painter by trade, 33 years old, a native of California, and is said to ha\ c one child living, a boy 10 years old. He was examined in Judge Shaw's department of the superior court yester day afternoon on an insanity complaint, an account of which will be found in another column, and ordered sent to Highland for treatment. Kellen board ed at the Terra Kaute house on First street, from whence he was taken on the complaint. J. W. Going and Robert Anderson of S. Spring street were ' the witnesses, and slated that Kellen ' had been attacked tirst about six weeks ago with what seemed to be epleptic fits and delusions. He imagined that sur geons were going to operate upon him. and he roamed about the house partially undressed, On April 20 he had a severe attack, and since then had grown rapid ly weaker. The physicians diagnosed his disease as arising from a fearful blood disorder, but had hopes of its be ing curable. From the court room Kellen was taken to the jail at 3 p. m., and along about 3:30 had a fearful lit, which lasted some time. Dr. Murphy from the county hos pital called and prescribed for him Be tween 8 and 9 p. m. he had another at tack, which left him utterly exhausted. He laid quietly after that until of a sudden the death rattle sounded in his throat and he expired at 10:30. The cur oner was notified and had the body re moved to the rooms of Kregelo & lire see, where an inquest will be held to-day. Kellen was a tall, slender man, with dark beard, and much emaciated by his sickness. He bad on his person when searched a check for $200, dated April 1. made out to William H. Adams and sighed by S. J. Hads & Co. This was indorsed by Adams, but made payable to no particular person. The paper was drawn upon the First National bank of this city. Deceased has a relative named Joseph Kellen living in Eureka, Cal.. who has been notified by telegraph of Kelllen's death.

TO THE EDITOR Children* Hospital Editor Herald: We are glad to sea ad vanced the Idea of a hospital for chlldrei i In this city. It Is a want long felt by phy slclans and nurses. In this age of progrcs sive Ideas It Is surprising that more at ' j tentlon has not been gl\ en tl the educatlor • | of the masses to the fact that It is only bj the establishing of properly conductec ; hospitals that disease can be controller I and eventually stamped out by the appll , | cation of science ln practice and nursing ! Once tret the people to believe that th< I tenderest care will be given their llttlt I ones and that soon they will be returnee :in sound health to their armbs, then nc | weary little luces will be seen In homes ol either rich or poor. It is generally impossible for a mothei to isolate a sick child and give It propel I attention. Even If she can afford a nurse I the houses are too small or occupied ln such a manner as to prevent Isolation of even contagious diseases. The very nature of the case demands Im i mediate isolation of diphtheria, measles, | scarlet fever or whooping cough and all irruptive diseases. In truth all classes of i disease, especially pneumonia and fevers I should be isolated. Every physician and , practical nurse know how absolutely es : sentlal to recovery is quiet in such cases. Death has snatched In vengeance the j tired child from the noisy hubbub of n ! family circle that it might have rest anil , recovery on the other shore. The very ! anxiety of friends retard the child's rc i covery. Nervous watching, anxious ques tioning makes the little one toss wearily i from hour to hour until death comes to its relief. ! A quiet hospital where the child would be secluded from the gaze of strangers and over zealous relatives would soon restore Its vitality and send the rested and revived llnihs out to play. The Intelligent family physician, holding a eontrollng Influence over his patrons could easily convince them that the hospital would be the best place for their sick child. A step further would lead to a law to compel the isolation of disease. An advance in Hospital man agement would rapidly grow, and the in stitution which turned out the greatest number of cured patients would be the best patronized. ] When maturing the idea of a children's 1 hospital, or any other, the mind quickly reverts to the possible cost in this time of j costly architecture. First to be consid ered Is the situation. It should be devot ed and outside of dense population, away from general business traffic, etc. The , building should be one story, very plain, large and well ventilated: furniture very plain so as to be easily kept clean: carpers I rugs and lllagree work of all kinds uteerlv Ignored. There is plenty to do to nurse the j patient without adding the care of orna mental wood work, fancy chairs, tidies, etc. The plainer ihe easier kept clean, and In hospitals especially is cleanliness neces sary to Godliness. The advantage of one story building! will be immedlatelv ap parent to physicians and nurses. Separate wards for each class if disease should be strictly adhered to. regardless of the space they would necessarily occupy. Hospital buildings, above all others, should be con ducive to health and convenience equally of patients and attendants, and not built to please the architectural eve of tourists. Though "a thing of beauty is a joy for- I ever it can often give an immense care to those whose duty it is to provide for It. Acknowledging the vast need of a hos pital for children, right now we would go turther and demand hospitals for all sick people, specially classified and supported by the people for the people. We believe the day is rapidly approaching when sickness will not be tolerated In the homes: when a case of sore eyes will be taken to the eve intlrmery. attended by specialists on the eye: when nervous prostration will be car ried to the nerve ward, treated by nerve specialists. Consumption will be sent to Its tent in the mountains and paralysis to its electric home on the sea shore, and so on through the long list of mortal Ills. Then, and not till (hen. can we hope to see disease crushed and its causes eradicated. When health Is honor and disease a dis grace, morality will need no advocates, for healthy bodies will support healthy minds, and healthy morals will result as a natural consequence. SARAH GAGE REDDICK. A Iree Harbor Editor Herald: The fact that C. P. Hunt ington has been able to control a majority of both house and senate committees In favor of giving the government appropria tion for the deep sea harbor to the South ern Pacific private harbor at Santa Mon ica, emphasizes the importance of sparing no effort for the free harbor until the ques tion is fully settled. Permit me to suggest that each of the [.apers advocating tbe people's cause, pub lish coupon petitions for all appropriations to be given to San Pedro, and urge their leaders to sign and return them at once to the paper or the Free Harbor league. This would permit many who could not he reached by other petitions to cast their votes in favor of what is so manifestly for the public interest. Though it may seem late for petitions, there is no knowing how long the matter may be before congress, and an over whelming expression from the people so largely interested ought to have som<- Weight. I would suggest the following form of petition: To the Congress of the T'nlted States: We, the undersigned, residents of South ern California, respectfully petition your honorable body to make appropriations for the amounts recommended by the sen ate committee for both inner and outer harbors, but both to be located at San Pedro, in accordance with the recommen dations of the government engineers. We prefer, however, that all appropriations for both such harbors should fail for this session rather than run any risk that the deep water harbor should be monopolized by a private -orporation. as we believe it must Inevitably be at Santa Monica. Signed Occupation Address ttt Yours very truly, I.OFIS K. WEBB. No Cars on Sen Fernando Street Editor Herald: On behalf of the busi ness men of a section of this cltv that sel dom gets Into print I would ask why tbe l.os Angeles Railway eompanv falls to run its curs upon San Fernando street. For more than six weeks, with the exception of a irial ear. ;iot v wheel has turned over the ri'ils since ihe cable was pulled out. Dur ing ihe progress of repairs on the viaduct we possessed our souls with patience re lol ing in the signs of improvement, but now the viaduct has been completed. th< truly wire strung these ten days, vet not a sign of a moving ear to reward our patient waiting. We have asked for reasons, bui can get no satisfactory answer from ofll ' ia Is or employes, none of them seeming to completely understand the failure of tin cars to run. Meanwhile business on Pan fernando street la growing beautifully less day by day. and merchants are beginning to get weary of waiting for these slow movements. If we have got to go through another four or six weeks' siege of depres sion, by reason of the cutting off of this "main traveled highway" from public use. there will be some vigorous protests made. II you will therefore kindly make this mai ler public, it may become the entering wedge that will open up either the reason or the remedy. E. H. RUSSELL, M. D. 113S San Fernando street. Fiesta SuiTitesttons Editor Herald : Now that suggestions for next year s Fiesta are in order I hasten to suggest that It be made a peiiiientiary offence lo blow a tin born or "Fiesta" whis tle next year, except on carnival night. The earspllttlng racket which lias prevailed on the business streets for the past week Is a nuisance, and certainly no one possess ing "nerves" will ever stop at a down-town liolel again during Fiesta week, if the nuis ance is to be continued cvi ry year. Again, why could not Ihe tribunes have I ccii thrown open on Friday (children's lay! to the thousands of parents and Hub- Dties, who stood patiently for hours, and then struggled In vain to get a glimpse of the procession?

Senator Blackburn, says a Washington correspondent, has blossomed out In a suit of gray homespun Jeans, with a black vel vet collar on his coat, and what they call down south, "a wool hat." It is of a pat tern and texture peculiar to that section, being home-made and of a material raised on the place. Dr. Depew says that the only ground for the rumor that he Is soon to marry, re cently revived, lies in the f lot thai he vis ited a Joss-house in San Francisco and was told by a Chinaman that he wouiu wed within a year. Dr. Depew asserts that a Chinese phophet may be without honor out side of his own country. Duke George of Saxe-Melnlngen has achieved more In the way of refining and enriching the dramatic art than any theat rical manager. He Is the presiding genius of his Court theater at Melnlngen, and de signs tbe scenery, furnishes the historical data for costumes, directs the groupings upon the stage and superintends the re hearsals. Prof. John Flske predicts that a great re ligious revival will come, surpassing even that of the thirteenth century, the era of great cathedral building. His theory is that a period of skepticism is succeeded by one fnith. and that Huxley and Ingersoll are therefore to be regarded as missionar ies and indirectly useful to the growth of the church. Sir Isaac Pitman, In an Interview, men tioned the curious fact that ln the early days of his shorthand crusade the system was assailed on religious grounds—one elor ic declaring In print that "mesmerism, phonography, chartism and socialism are the stalking horses behind which the most Satanic lies and the most absurd blasphem ies are sent forth." Lin.-oln was the first occupant of the , white house to wear a beard, and Grant was the first to wear a mustache. It was. : up to the time of Lincoln, considered gross i and unclean to wear either beard or mus ; tache. Lincoln had no mustache, neve land lias a moderate mustache and is the only one of the presidents to wear a mus ; tache without a beard. Alphonse Daudet. since the offer was ' made to lim by an American of a tremend ! ously large salary to run an international ! magazine, has grown curious regarding j this country and is said to contemplate a i journey hltherward.

Queen Victoria is the heroine of an ex- I citing drama now being acted in the lead ing Siamese theaters, in this she is about to be married in Ceylon, her capital, to the king of Slam, when that outspoken monarch breaks off the match, and in re venge the o.ueen invades his country. She is repulsed with great loss, ln spite of a hand-to-hand combat between the duke of Cambridge armed with a battleax and three Siamese fairies, and after an ex planation of the misunderstanding marries the king of Slam. It Is said that a patriotic American who traveled down to Greece to witness the ex ploits of the Yankee athletes In the new Olympic games recognized among the throngs a man who was once the object of a good deal of attention—none other than Cataeazv. Russian minister to \\ ush lngton In 1*72-t. His quarrel with Minister Fish and the half-suppressed scandal of his conduct during his ministry made him for a time the most conspicuous man In Europe.

People who saw him at his last in auguration would scarcely know him now If they met him face to face outside of the white house. His mustache is no longer dark: his former erect stature has given way under the weight of his offi< lal care and old Time: his cheeks are flabby and colorless: he has lost the spring to his step; and he now goes shuffling along like a ma many years older than he is. His health is no longer rohu ; -.r. as the almost constant presence of a physician at the white house indicates. For this. If for no other reason. Mr. Cleveland does not care to longer re main chief executive. All the third term talk Is without his sanction. It is extreme ly doubtful if he could survive another campaign, and certainly not another term as president.— W. R. Bell in Philadelphia North American.

Widow Watson had never heard of wo man's rights. She lived 120 years ago. Yet she edited and controlled the Courant. and that with hand type, hand press and hand power. Her success was gn at, and among her subscribers she counted George Wash ington himself.
