AN ALLISON MOVE
A recent dispatch to the San Fran
cisco Examiner from Washington gives
a formal declaration of Senator Allison
on the question of the free coinage of sil
ver, that is liable to affect in a disagree
able way the prospects of other Repub
lican presidential candidates, especially
those of McKinley. The senator makes
that unusual thing for him, an emphatic
and conclusive statement. He says:
"I am opposed to the free coinage of
sliver. I have always voted—three
times this winter —consistently against
the proposition, and I had thought there
could be no question upon It. I took up
this question when It was first agitated
under the leadership of Mr. Bland, and
I came to the conclusion that we could
not afford to coin silver at the ratio of
16 to 1 without the concurrence of other
nations."
This outgiving is accepted as
an indirect notification of the
intention of the anti-McKinley
managers to unite on Allison,
st least that is the way well informed
Washington politicians interpret It,and
there Is little doubt that they are cor
rect. Such a combination would wreck
thje chances of the candidate
of Canton in a brief and sudden
manner. While McKinley has up to date
a larger number of delegates than any
other candidate, he has not a majority,
and beyond question a large number
of those professing allegiance to his
standard will on slight provocation de
sert it for that of another. The dele
gation from this state can furnish some
Instances of this sort, for a liberal pro
portion of its membership is made up
of men who are at heart for Allison,
Reed and other Republican aspirants.
These cannot be expected to re
main steadfast to McKinley when what
they can assume to be a reasonable
excuse is afforded them for slipping to
the aid of their preferences,
Some of the most potent forces of the
Republican party are iv uneompromis-
ing hostility to the protege of Mark
Hanna; forces that hay, made and un
made Republican presidcntal candi
dates before, and it is not at all improb
able that they can unmake Major Mc-
Kinley if they try hard. In the first place
Piatt of New York and Quay of Pennsyl
vania are still outside the McKinley
breastworks with no prospect of get
ting in, either, because tiiey do not want
to or because McKinley's mushroom
political manager, Hanna, is determined
not to divide with others the honors
and emolumi nts of his boss-ship. Again
a large and powerful element of the
party dread a candidate not avow edly
and explicitly sound on the money ques
tion. They are fearful of electing a man
who, because of ignorance of the im
portance of maintaining a staple mon
etary standard or weakness, will be lia
ble to accede to the clamor of the free sil
ver coinage clans. In the minds of these
people the maintenance of the existing
standard Is the matter of prime im
portance, and they want a man w ho is
cocksure on the proposition. Then
there Is a numerous and influential body
of Republican business men against
the revision of tlie tariff that they
think might follow McKinley's election;
some because they are opposed to the
Ohio man's ideas of protection, and some
because they fear the unsettling eft, i ts
or tariff changes. And there are plenty
of Republicans who are not anxious to
be put into the position of defending
the notorious deals that have been
wade la McKinley's behalf with a multi
tude of interests that expect tariff leg
islation in return for the financial sup
port they are giving McKinley's candi
dacy. It Is not as easy to defend tariff
legislation in the interest of private en
terprises as formerly. As the result of
the revival of sound Democratic doc
trine under the gallant leadership of
Cleveland, Carlisle, Wilson and Bayard
the sophistries and fallacies of protect
ionism have been so riddled with the
bullets of free trade truth that hun
dreds of thousands of voters have been
able to see what before was obscure to
them, the fact that the "tariff is a tax"
and that the people pay itand that when
tt Is levied in the interest of private
parties and not the government, a spe
cies of robbery is perpetrated.
So a lot of Republicans do not wish to
talk about the tariff in the McKinley
way.
In Allison, now that he has come out
in a flat-footed way against free silver
coinage at 16 to 1, all the eastern Re
publicans not for McKinley can find a
candidate they can unite on, and the
McKlnleyltes outside of the sliver ex
tremists can find no good reason for
bolting him if he is nominated. He is
not magnetic, but he possesses the es
sentials of a harmonizer, and harmoniz
ers make good candidates when there is
a hard battle ahead.
No, McKinley has not a mortgage on
the nomination of his party yet, and tf
the following statement sent out by
Gen. James S. Clarkson, one of the
shrewdest politicians of the day, and a
man whose prognostications are cer
tainly entitled to as much consideration
as those of Hanna, is worth anything,
he will not get any. Clarkson says:
The election of delegates to the St.
Louis convention is now about closed,
and no candidate has a majority. The
delegations to the convention stand
about as follows: McKinley, 384; all
other candidates. 452; number of con
tested Beats, 82; total, 918; necessary to
I a choice, 460. McKinley, to be nomi
-1 nated, must carry V 6 of the contested
! seats, or all but 6. As four-fifths of
i these contests are McKinley bolts from
j regular conventions, tie cannot gain
enough to be nominated nor can he pro
cure enough votes elsewhere.
"Then you do not concede McKinley
a possible majority?" Mr. Clarkson was
asked In reference to this.
"Hardly, as a clear and strong major
ity of the delegates will not be for Mc-
Kinley, but will agree on some safe can
didate who is sound on all vital ques-
I tions. There will be 918 votes in the con
] vention for protection. As to a major
ity on the currency question, it is not
so clear, and this will be the supreme
test for nomination. In view of this. It
is a low estimate to say that at least 100
of the delegates now for McKinley (and
half of this number perhaps instructed
for him) are now halting between early
instructions and their duty to their own
convictions, to party interests and pub
lic, credit. While 100 gold delegates,
who are presumably for McKinley, are
wavering because of his indecision,
nearly, if not quite, the same number of
silver delegates are wavering on ac
count of the same thing.
"The whole country east of the Mis
souri river is stanch on the currency
question, and these delegates will not
vote for a candidate who is doubtful in
record or purpose on this question.
Thirty-one of the states, including all
the larger one except Ohio and Michi
gan, have declared unequivocally for
sound money, and practical!v a gold
standard. There will be from S6O to 600
votes in the convention standing for
this sort of platform, and the candidate
must be a sound money man."
"Then you believe that some candi
date other than McKinley will be nomi
nated?"
"I certainly do. The judgment of the
great majority of the most deliberate
and experienced men in the Republican
party is against the nomination of Mc-
Kinley. and the business and financial
circles of the country will have far more
power at St. Louis than any mere con
test between politicians or rival bosses."
"Then the fight has not been given up
by the field ?"
"The field has a majority and has a
good chance to win. All the men and
leaders whose Judgment Is against the
advisability of McKinley's nomination
are loyal party men, and will do as much
or more for the election of the ticket if
they are defeated than the men who
may defeat them. But they are r.ot de
feated yet, and I think they are going to
win."
"OFF ITS BASE"
The Evening Express seems solicitous
about dissensions in the local and state
Democracy, and favors the public with
what it probably conceives to be a clear
and able analysis of the situation. With
a few swoops of its sharpened Faber it
divides the party In thi3 county and
state into two factions—gold bugs and
silver bugs, and designates some little
differences that have arisen locally
about the mode of electing delegates to
the next county convention, as a prelim
inary skirmish in the battle between
the bugs over the thing that they are
bugs about—finance. That there is a di
vision of sentiment in the Democratic
party of California regarding the silver
issue no one denies, but that the differ
ences developed at the late meeting of
the county central committee are about
that issue it has been left to the Ex
press to find out and publish to an impa -
tient constituency. The fact that men
representing both sides of the coinagi
issue are acting in common on each Bide
of the contest about the coming Demo
cratic primary elections Is ignored in a
way that is charmingly characteristic.
There are free-silver and gold-standard
Democrats supporting the ward primary
project, and there are gold-standard
and free-silver Democrats acting in uni
son in behalf of the plan to conduct pre
cinct primaries, in accordance with the
custom of the party. There is absolutely
no evidence that any faction of the De
mocracy of this county has thus far
made "arrangements" to send a delega
tion wedded to either side of the money
question to the Democratic state con
vention. Some arrangements may have
been making to send certain parties- tv
that convention, but not because of the
views those parties entertain on the
great national question.
Tlie differences In the California De
mocracy regarding matters of national
policy will doubtless come to a head in
due time, and when tbey do they will
be fought out In the manly, open way
peculiar to the party that is made up
of men who hare convictions and the
courage to contend for those convic
tion:-. The product of the Democratic
state convention will not be machine
made, like that of the recent Republican
convocation at Sacramento. The Her
ald has contidence that that product will
be to its taste, that the convention s
declarations regarding the tariff the
financial, the railroad funding bill' and
the other important public gui stlon I
will be In line with true Democratic
principles, but whatever it is, it will be
inspired by a sense of principle and not
of policy. Unlike their Republican
brethren, Democrats are given to the
"mistake," as the Express evidently
considers it, of standing by principh as
they see it, even when policy might
seem to promise more pleasingly.

AT THE THEATERS
THE ORPHEUM —Another "standing
room" audience packed this house last
night, and witnessed a performance that
took equal rank with the excellent shows
seen at this popular place of amusement
of late. Rosie Rendel opened the bill with
her graceful dancing, and quick-change
acts, and was followed by Essie Clinton
in well sung character songs. The three
Kubes as usual captured the audience
with their eccentric, mirth-provoking
comedy. Dixon, Bowers and Dixon have
become big favorites here. Hayes and
Post, with their high kicking, were
again the wonder of the audience. The
Oautemala marimba players, with their
extraordinary musical instrument, fair
ly charmed the large audience with their
masterly rendition of dulcet Spanish
airs. Colden, Chalfant and Golden—a
happy combination of sweet singing, be
witching dancing and grotesque negro
comedy—of course, won the hearts of all.
The Mimic Four in their travesty on
Trilby made one of the notable hits of
the evening, despite of the fact that their
costumes and music had not arrived
from San Francisco. They will be on
hand tonight, however. If you want to
see a first-class show at all points of
judgment go to the Orpheum this week.

laughable evening.
THE OCCUPATION TAX
A Cordial Endorsement of The Herald's View
of the Subject
Editor Herald: I read with pleasure
your timely and forcible article on this
question in today s Herald. The impo
sition of this tax is. I think, peculiar to
the states and territories of the south
west that formerly belonged to Mexico.
Can it be that the system is the offspring
if early Mexican rule? It is certainly
a feature of Spanish municipal govern
ment. Indeed all Latin countries en
force these odious taxes, and the reason
is not far to find. Tlie governing classes
in these countries were formerly, and
to a great extent are now, people who
live by other means than those of trade
and commerce. It was Instinctive in
them to throw the burdens of local gov
ernment on the classes with whom they
were so little related. The odious mu
nicipal tax called the octroi was a few
years ago attacked by the intelligent
press of Paris, but whether it has out
lived the attack I am unable to say. I
have sometimes wondered in observing
the municipal laws of western cities and
their administration, whether council
men here, who, as elsewhere In this
union, are the product of a political ma
chine, have ever considered economic
questions and informed themselves on
the enlightened systems of local gov
ernment elsewhere. Are they men who
live by means other than those of trade
and industry? How many of the coun
cllmen of Los Angeles pay this tax on
industry?
Are they and is the newspaper press
influenced by the class on whose shoul
ders the burden should fall—the rich—
:o such an extent that popular interests
—the interests of the workers—are ig
nored in municipal legislation, and per
nicious ordinances so rarely attacked'

M'KINLEY'S MANAGER
AND HIS WAR ON LABOR
CLEVELAND, 0., May s.-Ne one
doubts McKinley subserviency to Han
na. Here Is a kindergarten lesson which
teaches It There is a telephone from
Hanna's office to McKinley's house, Borne
seventy miles away. It is not there to
permit McKinley to tell Hanna what to
do; it is used by Hanna to tell McKinley
what to do, and frequently to tell McKin
ley what he must do.
It's as if Hanna had established the
picket posts of his commands all about
his candidate. No one reaches the Mc-
Kinley eye or speaks one word to the
McKinley ear without the password from
Hanna. He has McKinley in his clutch
as ever did hawk have chicken, and he
will carry him whither he chooses. That
is the pact between them; the under
standing upon which Hanna and his syn
; dleate ts breaking, and buying and beg
\ ging, and bullying a road for McKinley
to the White House. And when he's
there Hanna and the others will shuffle
him and deal him like a deck of cards.
Hanna In person Is broad, tall, care
lessly clothed, and of red, violent visage.
His nature has all the force and lack of
! scruple of a torrent. He has a bushel
i of brains; coarse they are. but strong as
a horse. One could make two McKlnieys
out of Hanna and have plenty of Hanna
j left. Given an object, Hanna pursues
,it relentlesly. In its chase he will over
run anything or anybody, and pay no
more heed to the right of another than
! a cow would to a cobweb. The question
' with Hanna is not "What is right," but
; "What is wanted?" He does not what
he should, but what he can. and consults
Instinct, not reason, as ho fashions a
need.
I Hanna loves money. Not for its yel
'■ low sake as a miser might, but for the
sway and power thereof; because he may
make men creep and crawl, and spring
to his word. This feeds his Vanity, and
j he Is vain with all of the vulgarity and
ostentatious strut of a turkey cock—a
; fowl, by the way, he much resembles.
Hanna Is not a leader; he Is a boss.
I Rather, so far as he may be, he is a
| tyrant; drives men and is prone to op
j press. What is weak he crushes from
i the merest instinct of destruction.
Being from his youth about the lakes.
MARK A. HANNA
Hanna has grown In much of his man
ner to be a fashion of water ruffian.There
Is nothing softening about a marine in
fluence. It develops the courage, and,
as in Hanna's case, makes men prompt
and daring. But it grows no flowers in
one's nature. It has left Hanna as rude,
as hungry, as stormy and withal as
treacherous as the sea Itself.
Hanna has fought with his coal miners
and fought with his sailors. With his
millions, his virility, his want of con
science, added to his native skill to drive
and coerce and compel folks his way.
Hanna has never lost one of these labor
wars. Today he is the conqueror of la
bor unionism on the Great Lakes, and
perhaps the only man who was born to
make the boast. It took time and money,
and crime and blood, and took bread
from men's mouths, and left want and
wrong at many a poor decent door; but
Hanna was victor. He is. as a result,
the great fresh-water padrone of the
day, and his sailor people are helpless
as Mexican peons in his grasp.
In ISSI the Seaman's union was a
strong organization on the great lakes.
Wages for men forward of the mast were
S- and $L'.,~0 per day during the summer
months, while In November and Decem
ber, months of storms and sleet and ice.
when vessels In those narrow seas went
crashing to the bottom like ships of
glass, and lives were lost to such limit
that the two ocean coasts could not and
cannot furnish a parallel list of loss and
death, the lake sailor men had $4.00 per
day.
This seemed enormous to Hanna. w ho.
not bolrg enriched half fast enough, or
lather feeling himself possessed of the
cruel power to cut them down, ordered
a reduction. Then was the war between
Hanna and the Seaman's union on at
once. and. with the seamen fighting
for bread and life, and Hanna as indom
itable and no more to be baffled or put
at bay than Hannibal, It was a war to
the death.
Hanr.a, with Selah Chamberlain, the
Minifies and the Alvah liradley estate,
made up the four great vessel-owners
of the lakes, Hanna organized these
enormous interests into a line of battle
against the tarry sailor folk.
Hanna demanded that they take $1
per day in summer and $2.30 during the
stormy months, when it was almost an
even chance that he sailed to his death
who sailed at ail. Against the Seamen's
union he organized a non-seamen's un
ion. He gave orders to ship no sailors
on his craft or the vessels of the Big
Marine 4 who belonged to the Seamen's
union, and beyond that he arranged for
bitter battle.
What he did in his home city of Cleve
land he did in Chicago, Detrott, Buffalo;
In fact, in every port from Duluth to the
Thousand islands.
In Cleveland he. after a fashion,
brought the local police to his elbow.
On the police force at that time was a
water thug named Al Rumsey. Rum
spy was hired as an "agent" of the
Hanna - Chamberlain - Mlnch - Alvah
Bradley combine. He was made a spe
cial policeman. He hired under-thugs.
whose mission it was to bully and beat
union sailors. Rumsey and his myrmi
dons, working the tyrranical will of Han
na and under his eye and word, through
1882, 1883 and 1884, the years of fiercest
war, seldom allowed a day to pass, with
out sending a dozen wagon loads of
maimed and beaten sailor men to the
police prison. In almost every instance
I'pdeir'-aff. the judge, and those who fol
lowed him. made the victims free, as the
evidence constantly disclosed Rumsey
and his under-thugs as the aggressors.
Now and then Rumsey and his brutes
were themselves arrested on a warrant,
but Hanna s millions wired them loose.
In the courts it was practically a stand
off. Hanna. while unable to convict the
sailors whom Rumsey assaulted, still
had power equal tn protecting his bra
ves from the reward due their crimes.
Rut the struggle ended In favor of
Hanna and his clique—this money war
on perishing flesh and blood. The Sea
men's union was at last beaten and
broken flow n, and four years ago died
outright, its members, poor always to
th" point of bitter want, couldn't cope
with the millions of Hanna. At last the
Sailor"' union, with Peter Lynch at the
head of the Cleveland .branch, gave up
the struggle and Hanna won his cruel
fight.
Hanna has often boasted that sine
this crusade against poor sailors'rights
he and his allies have cleared up over
tifi.noo.fino, the aggregate reduction in
the wages of the seamen which they
brought about.
As rmn nf tlio Incident! to his war
Hanna bought hit] wrecked the Cleve
land Herald, a paper founded in ism.
and eminent for its respectable sort un
til Hanna got it. He turned it as an
engine against organized labor, "ratted"
his printing office and finally killed the
pancr Itself, when it had served its turn
The above is a lesson leaf from ITn.n
na's life history. You may know what
manner of man it Is who control Mc-
Kinley when he Is elected, just as he
o\\ ns and controls him now. With such
a Whits House manarrcr and such a
White House man, with Hanna and Mc-
Kinley, March 4, 1597. would be a heyday
for money but dark and desolate for
penniless folk, who owning naught bus
their hands and hearts, would have
nothing stronger than Justice on their
side.
