FRIDAY, Jl NE s, 1806.
Perhaps the explanation of McKln
ley's silence is suggested in the follow
ing interroga tory by the Salt Lake Her
"How can McKinley speak when he is
chewing the cud of reflection?"
The following from the Amador. Cal.,
Dispatch neatly Illustrates the rem; : li
able versatility of Ohio's boom candi
"Mr. McKinley is somewhat similar to
the corner grocery black bottle, from
which was furnished whisky, brandy,
wines or beer, to suit the taste of the
customer. He is gold bug In the East;
free silver for Colorado and Utah; and
bimetalllst for sections that wish to mix
the draught."
The Evening Express has a system
of interpreting English which should be
copyrighted. By the aid of this system
it is enabled to read what is not with
the same degree of facility that an or
dinarily endowed person would perceive
only what is. In criticising an editorial
in The Herald of yesterday, express!) g
satisfaction at the defi at of Ri presenta
tive Hermann, it states that The Her
ald "tries to make it appear that he was
beaten because of his position on the
harbor question." To peopli who read
the editorial in question, in the old
fashioned way, it must have been plain
that The Herald did not try to "make
it appear" as the Express Bta tes. Satis
faction was express, ,1 at Hermann's de
feat because of his traitorous conduct
in the matter of the Los Angeles harbor
appropriation, and there was not the
slightest suggestion of any thought that
his defeat could be traced to that con
duct. The Herald is perfectly aware
of the fact that the Los Angeles harbor
controversy is of no more interest to
the people of Oregon that the Express'
editorials are to President Cleveland.
The Express editor should utt nd one
of those mind-cure fellows and get his
mentality straightened out.
In the following from the New York
Evening Post are seme conundrums
which afford a large and ample chance
for explanation by the advocat, sol pro
tectionism, it is apparent from tlie
facts developed that the manufacture rs

"pauper" products of this country. The
Post says:
"The futility of all atti mpts to make
tariff duiics dependent upon the dlffer

OOUntry and "abroad" wus very forcibly
ihown by the organ of the Manufut tur

to which we made reference yesterday.

The publishers of The Herald will
bring action for heavy damages against
George P. Howell & Co., publishers of
The American Newspaper Directory,
and the would-be censors of the circula
tion of all newspapers In the United
States, as soon as the papers can be
made out and forwarded to New York.
The reason for the intended action lies
In palpable misrepresentation on the
part of the prospective defendants.
Notwithstanding the fact that the
publishers of The Herald have been
printing sworn statements nf its circu
lation monthly for the past six months
and forwarding copies of same to the
for 1596 gives The Herald a rating of

nearly two thousand less than Its actual
sworn circulation.
Hut this is nothing new for George
,P. Rowell, nor Is it the first complaint
by several hundred which has come
! from disgusted, ill-treated and misrep
resented publishers.
If the accuracy of this blunderer's lat
est directory! which dues not direct in
Ihe lines of facts by an overwhelming
majority, is as near the truth in regard
;lo the circulation of newspapers and
, other data as it is in The Herald's case,
publishers, advertisers and others who
have been deluded Into buying a copy
would better give desk room to a last
year's almanac than to Howell's worse
than useless Imitation of an honest
newspaper directory.
Possibly if The Herald had submitted
to the filching process, having Its treas
ury limb stretched to the tune of 11200
for a page advertisement in Printer's
: Ink, recently, its circulation might have
; been quoted correctly.
A project is on foot which Is entitled
to the substantial assistance and warm
sympathy of every loyal citizen of Los
Angeles. The project is to accord Sen
ator White on his return to this city, af
! ter the adjournment of congress, a pub
lic reception in token of the popular ap
: preciation of the inestimable services
he has rendered at Washington in com
bating the nefarious schemes of Collis
P. Huntington.
Senator White has served his constitu
ents with ability audi fidelity seldom
equaled. Like the fearless, incorrupt
ible man that he Is. he has faced and
mastered in the conflict one of the most
j powerful and unscrupulous corporate
i monopolies in the country, a corporation
! that has. with good reason, acquired the
I reputation of being invincible In war
fare and implacable in its enmities;
proof against its seductions, superior
, to its tactics and indifferent to its hos
tility. Southern California's senator
; fought the good fight of his people to an
end made proud wilh success.
If ever a public servant was given a
difficult task Senator White was in the
; leadership of the battle against the sel
fish, robbing designs of Huntington et
al. In order that the ends of the latte.
might be attained the well-nigh irresist
ible enticements of great and easily ac
quired wealth, the pressure of allied and
associated interests, the threats of fu
ture antagonisms anil the potency of
cunningly woven misrepresentations
were unsparingly employed, and overall
Senator White triumphed. The contest
he waged will take its place In con
gressional annals as one of the most re
markable nf recent years, and it has
developed him to the public eyel as one
of the strongest men of his day.
In this time of selfish Individuals,
of weak and purchasable public servants,
ready to acquiesce in the will of greedy
and conscienceless monopolists, either
as cowards or traitors, lt is refreshing
and lends encouragement to the belief
that representative government is not
yet a failure, to find, as in Senator White,
a man who boldly and without stint
champions the cause of his people and
champions it with such gratifying re
sults. To such, exceeding honor is due,
and lt is to be hoped that the assembly
tomorrow will arrange a function which
will prove an ovation worthy of the
statesman to be honored and expressive
of the sense of gratitude which must
abide with the people of Los Angeles.

Correct.. I*
An item of news Is going the round
Of the* press of the country to the effect
that Ferdinand Schumacher, an Ohio
oatmeal manufacturer, has made an as
signment for $2,000,000; that he was
practically the originator of the busi
ness in the United States and that he
commenced in a small w ay, grinding his
product by hand in his kitchen. This
II m caught the eye of W. 11. Rule of
Tucson, Ariz., but now In this city, and
it offended his sense of accuracy in mat
ters hi tori-al. Mr. Rule doesn't give
a tinker's continental whether the unfor
tunate Mr. Schumacher failed or not.
nor fur how much, neither does Mr. Rule
care whether the deposed oatmeal king
commenced grinding the muscle making
cereal by hand in a kitchen or whethei
for the purpose he utilized the superllu-
OUS energy of a refractory mule in a
barn. lie, however, objects to the
statement that Schumacher was the
Originator of the health food in this
. ountry, and regarding this point writes
as follows:
"My lather, who was born forty miles
south of Edinburgh, Scotland, in the

1836, a miller, made oat meal there for
twenty years, coralntr to America in the

state. In the year IMO he put up the
first oatmeal mill built in the I'nlted

may claim the honor of producing beer,
i but it is Scotland—Bonnie Scotland, and

Delaware I < Stirred
The opponents of the single tax move
ment in Delaware must be in dire alarm
lest the crusade end ia victory, if the
bitterness with which they are pursu
ing the single tax advocates may b
taken to indicate their fears. The las',
outrage to which they have resorted was
to procure the arrest of William Horan
for advocating the single tax doctrine
at Hover, the capital of the state. The
dispatches merely announce that Ho
ran was arrested after lie had begun his
Speech. It was probably deemed un
necessary to specify the charge or stat?
the ground upon which a sentence of j
thirty days in jail was based. As the op
ponents of the single tax have unlimit
ed power at Dover the tusk of suiting a
charge to the occasion was a mere mat
ter of detail. It is gratifying to note that
although this power is Democratic, I*
does not represent the Democracy of the
stale, as is evidenced by the indigna
tion which Democrats are expressing
over the outrage.
This Is only one of many instances of
persecution with which the single tax
advocates of Delaware have been pur- 1
sued, and the effect has been to
strengthen the cause immensely. In
view of the fact that a single tax vie- i
tory in Delaware, which has a larger
proportion of land owners than any |
other state i n the union, would be a sig- :
nally eloquent endorsement of single
tax principles, the fight there Is exceed- ,
ingiy stubborn and bitter. The oppo- 1
nenta of th? doctrine are merely advanc- j
ing the cause when they seek tn crush
It by unfair means. Tn trying to abridge
the right of free speech they are pro-

All prices of wall paper greatly reduced,
t. A. Eckatrom, 324 South Spring street
NEW YORK, May 29, 1896.
Wall street ia still held In complete
suspense by the excitement and uncer
tainty attending the approach of the
political conventions. The market is
entirely In the hands of the professional
Operators, who under such circumstan
ces find selling most congenial, so that
the predominant tendency is towards .1
slow decline in prices. Outside these
political conditions, influences are on
the whole favorable, lt is true, the ex
port of gold continues; but Wall street
has not taken that factor very serious
ly, and there are indications that the
movement will soon come to an end.
There is also an absence of return of se
curities from Europe; which is rather
remarkable considering the agitation of
the free coinage Issue In the elections.
The railroads also are doing well. Man
agers generally report a good business
and encouraging prospects, and are mak
Ing liberal provision for accommodating
j the c oining crop movements. The earn
ings make a good showing compared
I with last' year, which is the moregrati
| fying as a year ago the business was
j upon an increasing scale. In the mer
| cantlle business, the conditions are var
| led. some trades reporting a fair move
| ment. but at low prices, whilst others
j are full of complaint. The dry goads
! distributors especially find lt difficult
j t,, move off their season's stocks and
I have to adapt prices to the condition
of ample stocks and a slow demand.
I The Iron trade is very sluggish: the re
i cent raising of prices by the combina-
I tlons having put a very severe check
| upon the demand. Taken as a whole,
however, the material conditions affect
ing the market • would probably admit
:of a general rise In stocks, were lt not
j for the chilling effects of political uncer
tainties In connection with the silver
question. These remarks as to the con
; ditlon of trade have reference, how
ever, to the local markets, while reports
from the Interior Indicate a healthier
state of business that prevails In this
city. This Is a difference to which we
have found occasion to refer previously,
and It needs to be kept In mind In judg
ing of the state'of affairs in the country
at large. As the local depression comes
nearer to Wall street. It produces an ef
fect disproportionate to its real Im
portance, and thus breeds an extent of
pessimism exceeding what Is warranted
by the general national conditions.
The early adjournment of congress
will have somewhat of an assuring effect
upon confidence. It will mean an end to
Interferences In the Cuban and Vene
zuelan questions: to disturbing silver
s hemes: and to virtual repudlatory res
olutions for preventing the government
from protecting Its notes by borrowing
gold and thereby precipitating the silver
At the same time, it will require the
most jealous oversight over the caliber
of the men who are to be put In nomina
tion for congressional functions. At the
next session, some of the most Import
ant problems will be pressed for solution
that have ever occupied the attention of
I imgress: and no effort should be spar
ed to secure the nomination of candi
dates who not only have a competent
understanding of financial questions but
also can be trusted for the maintenance
of sound-money principles. The unde
niable revival of sllverlsm, as shown by
the political symptoms of the hour, has
naturally Increased the solicitude of re
flective men about the future of mone
tary read justment. It is becoming more
evident that the settlement of this entire
problem is not likely to be effected by
any one bill or at any one session of con
gress. The large general question In
volves subsidiary parts, upon each ono
of which there are likely to be wide dif
ferences of opinion, and which also will
require separate treatment.
The first branch of the general issue
to be disposed of must be the future po
sition of silver. The nature of the coin
standard Is a matter so fundamental
that all other money legislation must
depend upon what is done In respect to
that question. I'pon the action in re
spect to silver must largely depend what
is possible or what is probable in respect
lo other branches of treatment.
After silver, would naturally come
the legal tender problem. This may be
found a much more difficult question
than it is now suposed to be. Although
it may be assumed that, as a rule, the j
Eastern "sound money" sentiment fay- I
ins the withdrawal of these notes, yet lt !
is not to be overlooked that, even in this '
section, there is an attachment to this
form of money that would raise obsta
cles to a complete retirement of the I
notes, or at least would demand that |
their extinction should be accomplished i
thro' gb a very slow process. As to the '
South and West the old greenb .c': fash
ion and the "more-money" people would
be quite likely to present a stubborn
opposition to any sort of Interference
with the notes. The Silverites also, so
far as they are Inflationists, may be ex
pected to resist any withdrawals of pa
per circulation; the more so as they are
aware that, as free coinage would nrnan
a depreciation of all paper money, a
larger volume of circulation would be
t led under a silver regime. It is thus |
'dear that the treatment of the legal ten- \
der question must involve a long and
embarrassing struggle, with an uncer
tain outcome.
-\"Xt iii order of treatment must come
the bank note question. I say "next,"
because what may be done In this mat
ter must largely depend upon what is
done In the way of retiring the green
backs and Sherman notes. This again
is a question bristling with difficulties
and diversities of opinion. There will
be one faction which demands that the
basis of guaranty shall remain as it is,
with possibly an enlargement of the per
mitted use from fm per cent to 100 per
cent of the par value of the bonds. In
opposition, there v.ll he an Important
demand for constituting the entire
assets of the bank and the liability of i
the stockholders either the sole basis of
guaranty, or an alternative one with the
present bind basis, at the choice of the
bank. The South and West may be ex
pected to mak a resolute demand for
the rights of the state banks to issue
notes, elth r vi der the existing state
laws or under a general national law
de fining the conditions under which any
and all hank not s may be issued. Here

The Queen Esther circle of the Boyle
Heights M. E. church held a very suc
cessful paper bazaar yesterday after
noon and evening at Korbel hall on
First street. The hall was brilliant with
color, each booth being elaborately dec
mated with paper adornments in addi
tion to the many pretty and useful arti
cles that were for sale. The balcony
that runs Ihe length of one side of the
hall was artistic with long date palms
and vines. The charming place was In
charge of Miss Delia Hates, assisted by
a score of pretty girls In light and airy
gowns, which made the scene more at
tractive. The red booth was presided
nver by Mrs. H. W. Wales, and it was
hard to make a choice from the many
artistic articles. In striking contrast
was the pink booth, in charge of Mrs.
Crier and Mrs. New ton. Mrs. Paddock
and Mrs. Gallup had for their color
=cheme blue popcorn and delicious
home-made candy was dispensed by
Miss Jessie Hates and Miss Glazier.
Large flaring collars or dainty caps of
paper worn by the ladies made the
whole picturesque and bright. In the
evening there was a unique procession
it well known advertisements, repre
sented by c lever make-up of the partic
ipants. Following this was given the
iiorning glory drill by the Misses Lor
ing. Stuart. Rees. Sanborn, Lowder,
