The league is making an act've can

Mayor Rader having yesterday received
a circular of which the following is a
The members of the German-Ameri
can Sound Money league have by the ex- 1
perlence of this and other countries be
come convinced that free coinage of sil
ver at the ratio of 11 to 1 must produce I
a fatal panic and Injure the interests of
the country more than any mercantile
crisis heretofore known: that free silver :
coinage. Instead of leading to bimetal- !
llsm, would simply drive gold out of cir- 1
culation, make silver the standard of 1
value tn the detriment of all citizens,
especially of the working classes.
The fight against free coinage will be
brought to a final issue in this presiden
tial] campaign. A revival of business
depends on the maintenance of tho gold
Wo have, therefore, formed this asso
ciation and mutually agreed with each
other, to cast our votes only for the
presidential candidate who will declare
himself unequivocally against free coin

German Americans can give no bet
ter proof of their patriotism and fealty
to the land of their adoption than by a
determination to advocate the cause of
sound money in unmistakable language
before the national conventions of both
political parties.
We would, therefore, ask you kindly
to answer the following questions hy
"yes" or "no" on the postal card enclos
ed heroin:
Do you consider the measures of value
the most important Issue of the ensuing
political campaign, the problem, to
which all other economic questions
should be subordinated?
Are you In favor of the maintenance
of the gold* standard of the United
Are you willing to support only that
party which declares by its platform
unequivocally in favor of a continuance
of the gold standard .and will you agree
nor, to vote for any presidential candi
date who does not in hi;- letter of ac
ceptance declare in unmistakable lan-'
guage that he is for the maintenance of
the gold standard?
If the platforms nf both the Republi
can and Democratic parties should be
ambiguous, so as to leave their meaning
in doubt, will you assist in the eventual
formation of an independent sound
money party?
We request you to answer the fore
going questions by "yes" or "no," giv
ing your reasons on a separate sheet,
and state if they may be published. We
would also thank you if you would in
duce your German-American neighbors
to reply to these Inquiries. Put above
all we- ask for ,your prompt reply, as no
time must lie lost.
Accompanying the above is another
letter as follows:

Throws Open the Doors Tomorrow
I'niler the most favorable conditions
the house of Diamond Bros, throw open
their doors to the public tomorrow. This
concern is already too well known to
Southern California people to require
any special introduction, to the Los An
geles public. For years they have con
ducted large establishments at San Ber
nardino and other points throughout
the state. In coining to Los Angeles
they seek a wider scope for their efforts,
a larger field In which progressive
methods may meet with more adequate
return. Mr. Diamond, who is a business
man through and through, asked the
reporter to go over the store which w ill
be opened to the public tomorrow. The
store is "L" shape, having a large front- |
age on East Second street, as well as
Main street—it is large, light, airy—and
splendidly lifted with fine stocks of dry
goods, shoes and clothing. The windows
ate already decorated for the opening,
and give a'hint to the passer-by of the
splendid class of goods this concern will
carry. Mr. Diamond said that he had
selected Main street as his location sim
ply because it was the one central point
where rents and other expenses were
low; as a consequence he could under
sell Spring street or Broadway mer
chants on the same class of goods and
still make money. It hits always been
the policy of Diamond Bros, to sell the
l< is that the people want at the prices
the people want to pay. Special efforts
have been made by the firm to make
the opening day very attractive to visit
ors. A splendid program of mandolin
music will be rendered both afternoon
and evening by the Ladies' Venetian
orchestra. A beautiful souvenir will
also be presented to each visitor. Every
woman in the city should go to the open
ing tomorrow.

Inquiry for country lands seems
stronger than for some time past, many
soles being reported both of small tracts
for Immediate occupancy and of larger
places to he improved and brought un
der cultivation. Among; the latter class
is tlie purchase of thirty acres of peat
land located near Westminster, In Or
ange county, by W. F. Phillips, who
promises to supply peat for fuel if any
body wants it, but proposes to hedge
against lack of business by planting the
land to vegetables. As the price of the
land was only $200 per acre, while it is
as fertile as anything that the sun
shines on. the venture Is likely to prove
a financial success whether or not the
demund for peat fuel materializes.
As has been the case for mouths past
the demand for building lots is not re
stricted to any particular locality. The
"village" of Sherman, between Cole
grove aud the sea. is the most thriving
settlement which lias been started of
late, and promises to blossom out as a
town of 400 or 500 inhabitants by the
