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.

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.

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? The management would
have lost nolhing by opening the tribunes,
dure they were unoccupied, and such an
lotion would have been greatly appreciat
ed by hundreds of weary mothers, to say
lothing of the fathers.
Cannot this be managed better next

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.

prominent citizen of Hartford, and, like
an old-time, dutiful wife, surrendered to
him the management of affairs. Never

the Widow Watson was the Courant, and
the paper Is today a proof of her success.

THE MA.VTEK OP THE HOUSE
Love came a-knooklng at my door—
I flung it wide without delay;
He was so coaxing aud so gay,
f bade him never leave me more!
Now in my house he's wont to dwell,
So great have his exact ions grown—
So tyrannous that lisping tone.
I sometimes question, Was it well?
"See yonder, virgin, spare and grave?
Years past—ha, ha!—she locked her
door—
And now, if I should tap once more,
Doubt not she'd lly to be my slave!"
For I was strong, and now am weak,
And I am bound, who once was free;
T, too, since Love has mastered me.
Though I was proud, have grown so meek!
The rogue—he flouts me to my face!
My sore complaint Is food for smiles;
He thinks to pay for all my tolls
With one more boisterous embrace.
—Elaine Goodale Eastman in Frank Les
lie's Monthly Magazine.
