TUESDAY, MAY IS, 1806
Labouchere, who has a ready wit for
the impostor, describes the British
South Africa company as a gang of
shady financiers who are running a
gambling concern with the union Jack
flying over It.
Some practical joker has set afloat an
absurd yarn to the effect that Governor
Budd has appointed J. Marlon Brooks to
the normal school trusteeship made va
cant by the death of General Mansfield.
And the worst of it is that "J. Mary Ann"
seems to credit the tale.
An evening contemporary yesterday
had a special stating that Senator Frye
was making a "great speech." The man
who sent that special is either Ignorant
of what constitutes a great speech or
unacquainted with Senator Frye's ora
tory. The Idea of Senator Frye making
a "great speech!" "Doesn't that jar
you?"
The Sacramento Bee stigmatizes the
Bepublican state convention of last
week as "the most incomprehensibly
and idiotically Inconsistent political
convention ever held in the state of
California." The Stockton Mail points
to it as "an example of the deplorable
political degeneracy of the day." Gen.
Barnes, a prominent Republican, de
clared that he never saw so dull-looking
a body of men, and never sat so many
hours without hearing something that
was worth listening to.
It is safe to say that the men captured
en the Competitor by the Spanish will
not be executed until the demands of
this government that they be given a
fair trial in a proper court have been
acceded to. The inhuman and, to this
country, humiliating Yirginius affair
will not be repeated during the admin
istration of Grover Cleveland. With
characteristic promptness the president
and the secretary of state have inter
vened, and the Spanish officers will wait
a while before they have the heads of
the captured Americans. American
citizenship is beginning to regain
abroad the prestige lost during the
rfteime of the party of special privilege
and resounding profession. President
Cleveland unfailingly asserts the kind
of a vigorous foreign policy the country
should always have—the policy of pro
tecting American ( Itlzens in their rights
on the high seas and in foreign lands.
It is a policy of the Democratic party
made glorious by successful wars waged
Jn its behalf by Democratic administra
tions with Democratic soldiers.
UNLAWFUL ASSISTANCE
The Herald is in receipt of the follow
ing query:
"Ia it unlawful for us to aid th"
Struggling Cubans, in the way of
mqney? jf not, if some small amount
were sent, to Kstrar.do Palma, New
"lork. would thei.' such reach the needy
heroes?" A.W.H.
The United States and Spain have a
treaty in force by the terms of which
each government hinds itself to prevent
the sending from the territory within
its jurisdiction of any material assist
ance to people engaged in rebellion in
the other, unless it shall have accorded
to such rebels recognition as belliger
ents. A treaty v itli a foreign power Is ;i
part of the law of the land. Therefore
for American citizens to furnish finan
cial or any other material assistance to
the Cuban insurrectionists at present,
would be unlawful.
The citizens of a country are expected
and are in duty bound to abide by the
terms of the treaties entered into with
other countries. Treaties of the kind are
as essential to the prevention of interna
tional chaos as statutes are to the pre
vention of domestic disorder. The Amer
ican people would undoubtedly expect
Spain to abide strictly by the stipula
tions of the treaty referred to In the
event of trouble similar to the Cuban in
surrection occurring in this country.
Consistency and common honesty re
require that the citizens of the United
States yield the same loyalty to the
treaty pledges given Spain that they
would exact of the latter country.
CARLISLE'S CONSISTENCY
The devotees of the Idea that fifty
cents worth of silver is as good as 100
cents worth of gold, If not a little bet
ter, aeem to find wondrous solace in the
recent attack made by that prince of
demagogues, on John G. Carlisle. The
burden of the Illinois executive's clamor
Is that the secretary of the treasury la
Inconsistent, that the views entertained
by him now are widely different from
those expressed by him a few years
since. Ex-Congressman Bryan of Ne-
braska, a gentleman who like the Pop
ulist senator, Allen from the same
state, is possessed of a capacity for
speaking and writing that is out of all
proportion to his ability to think of
something worthy his liberal expendi
ture of tongue and pen labor, has Joined
in the Altgaldlan wall about Secretary
Carlisle's alleged incosistency and has
Invited the latter to answer his own in
stead of other people's speeches.
Mr. Carlisle has very sensibly refused
to enter into controversy with either of
the worthies noted. He realizes the fact
that »y so doing he would afford them
excuse for afflicting additional speeches
and epistles, of their peculiar kind, on
the defenseless public, and thus acquire
more of the notoriety for which they
hunger.
Even if It were true that Mr. Carlisle's
present utterances regarding silver
coinage are at variance with those of the
past, It would not necessarily be to his
discredit. The conclusions of men art
drawn with the light they have. No
honest man can covenant to never
change his mind. The views of men are
liable to alter with enlarged opportun
ity for observation and study. The
world would make very little progress
In any line of human endeavor If peo
ple were to adhere to error and deny
the truth when It is presented to them
for fear of being "inconsistent." It is
the duty of people to be consistent in
what they deem the right and not in
what they have found to be the wrong.
It is the business of the Altgelds and the
Bryans to prove that Mr. Carlisle is
wrong now, if they can, and they are
wasting their time and labor in trying
to show that the Carlisle of today dis
agrees with the Carlisle of nearly
twenty years ago.
But the charge that the opinions of
the secretary have changed regarding
the free coinage of silver is entirely
false, and If Messrs. Altgeld and Bryan
are as well informed as men who pose
as teachers of the common people should
be, they must know of Its falsity. John
G. Carlisle has never spoken nor voted
for the free, unlimited coinage of silver,
but on the contrary has consistently op
posed legislation looking to that end.
When interrogated regarding the ut
terances of Governor Altgeld, Mr. Car
lisle said, "All such attacks as those
of Governor Altgeld were answered fully
in my speech at Covington, Ky., a year
ago." The portion of the Covington
speech referred to—and it should be cut
out and pasted in the hat of every sil
verite for ready reference—is as follows: i
"As long as there appeared to be rea
sonable ground for the hope that silver
could be raised to a parity of value witli
gold at a ratio of 16 tol by the separate
action of the United States.l was willing
to make the experiment, but I was never
willing to make it by legislation provid
ing for the free and unlimited coinage
of silver at that or any other ratio. The
only speech I ever made in congress on
this subject was delivered in the house
of representatives more than seventeen
years ago, at a time when the value of
the bullion contained in a silver dollar
was only 7 cents less than the value of
the bullion contained in the gold dollar,
and together with many other oppo
nents of free coinage, believing that a
restoration to our mints would bring it
to a parity with gold, supported a meas
ure providing for the limited coinage of
silver dollars on government account,
not on account of private individuals
and corporations as is now proposed.
Fifteen years' experience, however,
demonstrated that those of us who be
lieved in IS7S that a larger use of
silver by the United States would en
hance its price or value were mistake!'.
The speech made hy me on the occasion
referred to has been garbled and twisted
and perverted in and out of congress
with a malicious Ingenuity which has
scarcely ever been equaled In the dis
cussion of a public question, and yet no
one has ever ventured to make the di
rect assertion that it contained a single
word In favor of the free coinage of sil
ver. It was. in fact, made in opposition
to free coinage and In support of the sen
ate substitute for a free coinage bill
as can be seen by anyone who will take
the trouble to read it. Certain sen
tences, in which I denounced in strong
language the 'attempt to destroy' silver
as a money metal, have been separated
from their context and quoted again
and again In congress, on the stump
and In newspapers by men who never
read the speech, and wfio appear wholly
Incapable of understanding the differ
ence between the total disuse of that
metal as money and its free and unlim
ited coinage at the public expense for
the benefit of private individuals and
corporations."

KICKER O'MULLIN TALKS
WITH MARK HANNA
CLEVELAND, May 2.—"Mul," says
Mark Hanna, chuckln' the bottle me
way. ' youse la all right, an' I'm stuck
on your style. An' bechuxt me an" you,
Mul," he goes on, "I don't mind tippln'
me hand to you a bit."
"That flatters me, Mark," says I, "but
after all, It's doln' me dead open an'
shut justice. I'm no brasa band guy,
see? I don't strike town like a bloomin'
circus; but youse can trust me. I'm as
soon a mug as ever comes down the
pike. An' when it comes, Mark, to prac
tical pol'tics. Kicker O'Mullin ts that
swift he can lose an express train in
a walk. G'wan, therefore, me ears is ail
attention."
"Well, then," goes on Hanna, takin'
a cow swallow from the old bot without
bothern' a glass, "of course youse Is
dead aware I owns McKinley—l calls
him Mack when I needs him quick an'
wants him bad—l owns Mack, as 1 wns
sayln', and I'm out sprint In' him for the
pres'dency. An' bechune us, Mul, it's
dollars to disease of the heart I puts
him in a winner."
"That's the view entire," I says, "an"
as I sees you sweatln' over your game,
me mind gets choked up wonderln' do
you mean it, an' what is there in it for
you."
"Mul." says Hanna, dead thoughtful,
"I'll spiel It to you what's there In it
for Marky. 1 bees one of them stiffs,
Mul, who is out for power instead of
profit. See. I've made me bundle. I've
got dough to thrun to the birds —money,
Mul, to burn a wet dog. I own ships
an' the'ters an' coal diggings an' busi
ness blocks. I'm in the push distinctly,
Mul, when it comes to dust. That's
Mark Hanna."
"Correct youse be," I says, puttin' in
me indorsement to give him a chance to
get a fall out of his breath, an" to show
him likewise I'm at the heels of his chin
music an' followln' clost. "Correct you
bees, an' the money muckers all stand
for It, youse is a dead wise fowl. Why,
one of t hem Wall street marks he says to
me, Just as I quit New York, 'Mul,' says
he. 'make no mistake about the old rap
paree Hanna. He can make money like
some suckers makes trouble, an' as easy.
Trim him into the air, this Hanna. an'
he'll make $10 before he comes down,'
says he."
"An' dead right he Is, too," says Han
na. "But as I was laying it off, I've got
stuff enough, see? An' so now I starts
In to be great. An' ,Mul, McKinley is me
system. Be makin' this guy pres'dent,
what does Mark Hanna become? On the
level, Mul, when I lands Mack in the
White House, purely be me efforts an'
me dough, mind youse, don't I own the
earth?"
"Youse have the world be the tail, an'
a down hill pull," I says, "an' slim doubt
of it."
"You sees," goes on Hanna, roominat
l lye, "without me an' me bank roll, the
! dub McKinley don't go a foot. He'sonlv
a six spot be nature. Mul, an' when I
picks him up an' begins to curry him for
race for the White House he's Just been
beaten for congress an'hasalout played
out his string. But I sends him in for
gov ncr; an' then, when he goes broke
an gets caught signing $118,000 worth of
notes-pretty fresh bluff, that, an' him
not worth $10,000 at the time-I trips to
the dazzhn' front an' makes good. You
tumbles yourself. Mul. that all this

"It was dead generous." I remarks
you squarin' them debts. They has Mc-
Kinley out on a limb."
I rJI "' as / en frous." replied Hanna, "as
I freel> admit to you In confidence, Mul;
but lt has t0 be fl tOO Jt , s ]jke an
other campaign play. We was all busy
layln the keel to his boom when them
debts comes tumblin' on to us like a
pan of milk from a top shelf, of course
they had to be paid, same ap we has to

i But now it's done. Mul. while I admits
I goes to the front in a spirit of benevo-

make good his debts, see?"
"McKinley shows he's game." I ob- '
serves, " makin' over all his property
to youse an' Herrick that time. Goiii'
flat broke to pay his debts."
"Great Idee, that. Mul," says Hanna,
beamin' on me;"it was me plan complete.
I knows how to fake up a stage as well
as any geeser who's snortin' round in
pol'tics. You bet I could give Piatt and
Quay cards an' spades when it comes
to a spun-glass racket. I has Mac make
the bluff. He turns In his little handful
of dough; all he has. 'Pay me creditors,'
he says. We gives her all back again
an' the 'feet on the grand stand is great.
It looks dead sincere.an' honest for Mack,
an' is that generous it's out of sight on
our parts. That's the way the public
says. Havin' Mack stick in hiss stuff
that time, an' we glvln' it back, is for a
bluff In pol'tics, Mul. what I calls a
str.ike of genius."
" It was a ceilin' play." I says.
! "An' that's how it stands." says Han
na, "an' how I goes back of McKinley.
When he's a winner—make no mistake
he will be—the real pres'dent will be '

J main guy. an' that's no lie. neither.
"Now. youse is onto the secret of me

"But won't Piatt and Quay get in on

"Not on your life." says Hanna. "No

Citrus Belt Spirit
I During their stay in Sacramento the
I Los Angeies delegates have worn
I orange colored delegation badges and

The board of trade has received a let

recently adopted by the board urging
him to work for an appropriation for an
inner ami outer harbor at San Pedro.
The senator urges the board to stand by
him in his efforts for San Pedro.—Po*
mona Progress.
Poor ricLachlan
A somewhat embarassing feat of
horsemanship was imposed upon Repre
sentative McLachlan by the Lindley-
Arthur congressional convention, of rid
ing in two opposite directions at the same
time on the harbor question. Mr. Mc-
Lachlan was elected on the San Pedro
Issue, and now the convention that re
nominates him makes a Santa Monica
platform for him.—Pasadena News.
Unwitting Victims
Santa Barbara county Democrats are
not so distressingly scarce when Repuh
licans find It was necessary to elect two
of them without their knowledge or con
sent, to swell the McKinley boomers in
their county convention, as they did last
Week.—Santa Barbara Herald.
LAST WEEK'S CONVENTION
Tha moat incomprehensibly and Idiot
ically inconsistent political convention
which was ever held in the state of Cali
fornia, waa that which commenced Its
session on Tuesday afternoon of this
week and concluded Its performances
on Thursday afternoon. If General
Grant were alive and could have wit
nessed the proceedings of that conven
tion he would have apologized to the
Democrats, and, his famous aphorism
would now read: "The Republican party
can always be relied upon to do the
wrong thing at the right time."—Sacra
mento Bee.
Take as an example of the deplorable
political degeneracy of the day the ex
hibition which has Just closed at Sacra
mento. It Is not necessary to seek out
side the Republican fold for testimony.
General W. H. L. Barnes, himself a life
long Republican,bright, eloquent.~versa
tlle and patriotic, has said meaner
things about the Republican stnte con
vention than the most rabid Democrat
would think of saying. He was engaged
by one of the city papers to write his im
pressions, and Barnes confessed and de
plored the truth, which was that never
before in California was there seen such
a congregation of the feeble-minded.—
Stockton Mall.
The Republicans of the Second district
have chosen the unutterable Grove
Johnson to represent them in the na
tional convention. In view of the fact
that the state convention, by a vote
which these very delegates did not ven
ture to oppose, commended the Califor
nia!) representatives who had fought
the funding steal and therefore by plain
Implication condemned Johnson for his
part In It, this action puts the Republic
an party of the Second district in a piti
fully humiliating position. But It de
seirves n<« sympathy and will receive
none. It knew what Johnson was when
it took him up two years ago, and If it
had any doubts then they:have been dis
pelled by his proceedings since. What
ever the last campaign may have been,
there wllh be no false pretenses about
this one.—San Francisco Examiner.
General Barnes wrote of the Republi
can convention In the Examiner that
he 'never saw so dull-looking a body
of men as this. I never sat so many
hours without hearing something that
was worth listening to or worthy of re
membrance. I never was present at a
conventions where there seemed to be so
little independent thought and action,
nor saw one which manifested so much
weariness with itself and its business.
* • • Its members went their several
ways when the business was over,
without a single cheer for delegates or
candidates, or ticket, or platform,
or anything In the heavens above, the
earth beneath, or in the water under
It." and General Barnes is a prominent
Republican.
Ex-Senator R. B. Carpenter 'of Los
Angeles Is a very shiewd and level
headed politician. Talking to a num
ber nf interested parties the other even
ing he declared that the recent Republi
can state convention has materially in
jured the prospects of the party in this
state; that probably nothing can pre
vent McKinley from carrying Califor
nia, but that the Republican party will
have the biggest job it ever had In elect
ing the next legislature. — Sacramento
Bee.
THE POLITE WORLD
Mrs. C. M. Baker's home presented a
charming scene yesterday afternoon,
when little Miss Clara Baker celebrated
her sth birthday, and entertained also in
honor of her cousin, Miss Juliett Rich
ard. The house was beautifully deco
rated for the occasion with a profusion
of flowers, pansies forming the color
scheme of all the rooms. The reception
hall was divided by a pretty curtain of
smilax, caught up at intervals with pink
blossoms.
About the drawing-room was a dis
tribution of roses. The very cosy punch
room and dining-room challenged each
other in the beauty of their arrange
ments. The' former had a wall of palms
and pendent from the center of the ceil
ing was an immense Japanese umbrella.
Pink predominated in the dining-room:
ribbons, a wealth of La France roses
banked on the buffet, and delicate ferns
making the apartment extremely at
tractive. The birthday repast was serv
ed from a long table, that was most ar
tistic with flowers, anu dotted over the
table here and there were pink candles.
The whole was greatly enhanced in
beauty by the bright little faces that
surrounded the hospitable board. Con
spicuous among the guests was the gra
cious little hostess, who was very dainty
in pink and white. Th? happy occasion
will be remembered by the merry thromr
by souvenirs of pretty baskets, which
were filled with bon-bons. Games of
all kinds were played, the jnlliest of
which was Helen's Babies, for which
prizes were awarded. The first for the
little girls was a Haviland cup and
saucer; the booby a toy cat. The other
first prize was a pair of silver cuff hut
tons: the booby a darkey man with a
nodding head Mrs. Baker was assist
ed in making the afternoon pleasant by

A Pleasant Reception
The reception given yesterday after
noon by .Mrs. B.P.Bryan and Mrs. Strong
at the home of the former on South
Grand avenue proved a very delightful
affair and was attended by a large num
ber of their friends. The rooms were
artistically adorned with a variety of
flow ers that formed a most artistic com
bination. La France roses held sw ay in
the drawing room, which were arranged
with effect in large bowls and vasts. In
the library, which was brilliant in yel
low, refreshing punch was served by the
Misses Bessie and Minnie Bryan. In
the dining room dark red roses and sweet
peas made the room bright with color. An
immense bowl of roses and ferns occu
pied the center of the table and on the
buffet was a profusion of sweet peas and
ferns. Miss Annie Hendricks and Miss
Strong dispensed the hospitality in here - .
The afternoon was a very delightful one
and much enjoyed by all.
Alpha Chi Omega "
Miss Keep was the very charming
hostess last Saturday afternoon at her
home, on South Main street, at a de
lightful entertainment given to the
Alpha Chi Omlga of the University of
Southern California. The rooms were
handsomely dec orated in the class flow
ers of scarlet carnations. In addition
to these calls llllles were artistically ar
ranged about the rooms, and giving a
soft tinisli to Ihe whole were graceful
strands .if smilax. On each of the small
tables from which the tempting viands
were served were dusters of bright
flowers. In the games that were en-
Joyed Miss Hoffman won the first prize,
a dainty cup and saucer. Miss Green
was consoled by a fancy box of bon
bons. A very merry afternoon was en
joyed by the young ladies, which was
brought to a close at a late hour.
Surprise Party
Miss Leah Hellman was given a very
complete and pleasant surprise Sunday
evening by a number of her friends at
her home, op South Hill street. Games
and music pasesd the time pleasantly
by. There was a piano solo by Mr. Tnp

AT THE THEATERS
ORPHEUM.—The week opened most
auspiciously last night with a packed
bouse and a splendid program. There
were some new and strong features in
the bill, and the reappearance of sev
eialold favorites. Among the red-letter
events the Klns-Ners, with their wonder
ful balancing feats; Elena Leila.the Rus
sian soprano with a marvelously flexi
ble voice: the Nawna, In their clever
Irish pictures, were especially notewor
thy. Bosle Renders quick transforma
tions and graceful dancing made a de
cided hit. and the Ramirez Spanish
troubadors made sweet music with the
guitars and mandolins. Dixon and Burns
kept the house In a roar, and Hayes and
Post startled the audience with their
phenomenal high kicking. The best fea
ture of the evening was the final turn,"
by Golden, Chalfant and Golden In their
comedy flashes and eccentric characteri
zations and dancing. Chalfant posses
ses some golden notes in his voice that
would charm the birds from the trees,
and the two Ooldens stand at the top of
the ladder in their respective lines. Al
together there Is much merriment and
whole-souled enjoyment cut out for the
patrons of the Orpheum this week.

BURBANK THEATER.—The presen
tation of The Girl Up to Date at the
BurbSnk last night was even better than
on Sunday evening. A few of the rough
edges that are almost sure to show
at the opening were smoothed down and
the performance went through without
B hitch. Every member of the Davis-
Mnultnn company made a distinct hit.
Never in the history of Manager Coop
er's popular house has such a well-bal
anced, even, meritorious organization
been seen as at present.
The Girl Up to Date will be continued
throughout the week and at the Saturday
matinee.
Campaign Fallacies
Here is a sample of how the campaign
for protection is being run. It is from
the Oakland Tribune:
In 189-1. under the McKinley protection
law, the exports of barley from this
country were 4.740,585 bushels, which sold
for $2.:i79.714. In 1895. under the Wilson
Gorman tariff reform regime, the barley
exports amounted to 1,556,715 bushels,
which sold for $767,218 —a difference in
favor of McKinley protection in the mat
ter of barley alone of $1,612,496.
The idea of an import duty on products
that are raised for export Is absurd
enough, but the notion that such a duty
cruld enlarge the volume of sales or In
crease the price is a gem that may be
admired in Oakland, but it would hardly
excite admiration elsewhere.—Stockton
Mail.
