Mr. McKinley has almost learnt his
lesson, and in a few more days prom
ises that his dictation of it shall be
made public.
Tho Unklndest cut of all is that the
leading Republican paper of this city
should refer to the threatened invasion
of oratorical talent in favor of McKinley
and gold as a "circus."

Were such a ridiculous fallacy true,

No amount of money.sucb as instructs
a contemporary to declare that "the
tariff is the burning issue." will succeed
in drawing the wool over the eyes of
the people. The is.sue has been clearly
defined; It. is the vital issue and cannot
be evaded.
It Is instructive to recall that it was
the vote of fifte,. n Republican rilvcr
senators that last Bession enabled the
upper house of congress to block all
financial legislation. At tiie recent sil
ver convention at St. Louis it was as
certained by a canvass thatS'j percent

"Low wages in Mexico" Is another or
the terrifying cries with which single
. Standard orators are enlightening the
voter. Let the voter carefully compare
the wages of skilled labor In Mexico,
not only with those paid In the United
Btates, but with those in England, Ger
many, Russia, France and Denmark.
The average weekly wage in 1594 for a
bricklayer In the United Slates was
$21.18; the average wage paid In "poor
Mexico" was $10.00, while the average
price paid in the other five countries
was but $3.60 a week. The blacksmith
in Mexico got $S.OO a week, while the
averr-.ge wage paid In the five countries
ment oned was $5.14 a week. Telegraph 1
operators In Mexico received $11.50 a
week, while the average wages for them
In European gold Ftandard countries
was $6.71. The single standard man will
say that this is not a proper comparison,
discounting the real value of the Mexi
can dollar. It ls well to remember, how
ever, that in Mexico the silver dollar
buys Just as rrt'jeh as th" gold dollar will
buy in all the exchanges for Mexican
products.
IN HANNA'S GRIP
The cheap and unfounded sneers
which were leveled at Mr. Bryan's sin
cerity and disinterestedness primarily
by Senator Thurston, and eagerly cop
ied by a hungry opposition press, have
b?en Completely annihilated. Mr. Bry
an has been candid enough to explain
. ! his financial resources and to disclose
j the contents of his private purse; furth
ermore, he expresses his willingness to
' furnish the Republican state committee
with a strict account of his income for
the past fisw years, if their curiosity de
sires lt.
It is a matter for regret that such
Undignified methods of attack should
i have been resorted to by the enemy, and It
I wasalsoaveryshort-sighted stratagem
on their part. Mr. Bryan has given the
' straightest sort of explanation and the
! most vigorous denial to base and ton
i founded charges. With no desire tore
sort to the "tv quoquo" style of repar
-1 tee, one might well inquire ir.to the na
ture of the contract by which Mr. Mc
! Kinley was relieved of his heavy per
i Bonal obligations. It is a fact that has
never been denied that Mr. McKlnlev
! was capitalized at $118,000. and thatal!
I the stock was quickly grabbed by Mark
1 Hanna & Co. Notes amounting to that
I sum were taken up and filed away as
| souvenirs of Hauna's extraordinary
friendship. Presumably those notes
; have not been destroyed and are still
i held against the estate of Ma jor William
McKinley.
Would it not be In order, in the light
jof Mr. Bryan's candid disclosures, for
n list of those who financially assisted
Mr. McKinley to be published by the
Chicago Times-Herald, whose editor is
und rstood to have been the custodian
nf the fund?
If one desired to bond a gold or silver
mine at 1118,000, trouble might be ex
perienced in raising the wind, but the
syndicate seems to have snatched up
the entire McKinley debt—purely from
motives of friendship—and still hold it
themselves. It was.of course, an op
portunity that Wall street or the trusts
should not have neglected as a possibly
profitable though extremely hazardous
Investment.
Now. it should be plainly understood
that there is no reflection on Mr. Mc-
Klnley's personal honesty nor doubt of
bis absolute Integrity. Neither is im
pugned in this matter. It is no dis
grace for a man to fail in business, al
though lt may be n serious reflection
on his business ability. But the ques
tion asserts itself: Is not Mr. McKinley
under serious obligation to return his
friends. Hanna & Co.. pome kind of con
sideration for the 1118,000 raid for his
convenience? Mr. Hanna is a hard
headed man of business; more than
that, he has proved himself a remorse
less and rigid must"!' —he will have hi?
pound of flesh.
Will Hanna not hold over Mr. McKln
ley's head, should he be elected, tho
hypnotic Influence which $ns,ooo has
over the minds of most men of business
as well as politicians?
Of course, no one expects this debt to
be paid at unce in a lump sum. It may
tnke four years to liquidate it, though
th? present prospect warrants the
prophecy that lt will never be liquidated
by the means proposed. But should Mr.
McKinley be elected, there will be sev
eral ambassadors fur him to appoint to
foreign courts, a number of foreign
ministers and many consuls, besides
the most momentous consideration,
.the restoration of the McKinley bill,
which is to so enrich manufacturers
that they will gladly contribute to the
McKinley relief fund and help to re
store to Hanna & Co. their share of the
$118,000.
In all good conscience, !s lt conducive
]to good government or purity of poll
| tics for a man to be elevated to the pres
idency who has been saved from bank
ruptcy by tic money of so notoriously
and self-confessedly a corrupt politi
cian as Murk Hanna?
Could Mr. McKinley. if elected, be ex
pected to Ignore the obligations and re
sist the demands which Mr. Hanna
wculd mak" upon him?
Inasmuch ns the Republican press
has been clamoring for Mr. Bryan's
bank account, and he lias answered
them conclusively and explicitly, is it
rut in order that Mr. McKinley should
' respond by publishing the nature and
! the terms of his obligations to Mark
I Hanna & Co.?
: The demand for an Investigation is
general. The Chicago Chronicle, tho
j most Influential gold-bug journal of tho
west, makes the same charges against
I the gold-bug nominee for president.
I The Chronicle in its issue of the 18th
Inst, says:
Tiie philanthropy which raised over
! 8100,000 to save Major McKinley from
j bankruptcy was not disinterested. The
I man who sincerely believes otherwise
ls In danger of the padded cell and
j should consult a brain specialist.
The men who took Up the collection
} expected to get value received for their
contributions, and they are the very
I men who are now and have been foi
j six months straining every nerve to
ward tho election of Mr. McKinley to
the presidency. They want to see the
color of their money again.
They are ihe men who expect to profit
at the expense of the people If McKin
ley and MoKinleytsm come into power.
Tbey are the men who dictated the orig
inal McKinley bill, and who hope to dic
tate another and a worse one when they
get control of the government.
They are the men whose collar Major
McKinley wears. These are the men
upon whose bounty he hus depended
foe ten years, and whose Will be will
execute should he enter the White
House.
Mr, Bryan will take no notice of
Bourke Cockran's challenge, beyond the
courtesy of a polite refusal. He is per
i fectly willing to cross swords in debate
| with the man In his class, Mr. AVm. Mc-
I Kinley.
Mr. Hanna, whom Tom Piatt sneer
lngly characterized ns an amateur in
politic?, is not redeeming that reputa
tion. His attempted application to pol
ities of methods used in breaking up
labor unions has already proved disas
trous and will eventually redound to

! the defeat of his candidate. His latest
move Is to endeavor to bamboozle as
well as bulldoze the voter. He ls re
ported as saying;:
j The money whlCffWl must have in this
campaign must be used for the purpose
of forcing the tariff issue to the front.
This Is oHr great hope. We must give
the people object lessons to show them
that protection means their prosperity.
The Homestead strikes cost Harrison
his re-election. That was an object
lesson against us. We must have ob
ject lessons and speeches and literature
and everything in favor of. thg tariff.
A McKINLEY SPECIMEN
Mark Kama's protege, Major Wil
liam McKinley. has been so far subordi
nated lo the Cleveland magnate, in the
public eye. p.s almost to have dropped
out of notice. Of course he has been
steadily making neat little speeches to
pilgrim Pennsylvania clubs from his
front tloor steps, but he has given utter
ance to so little deserving of comment
that, for the most part, they have been
"like twice told tales, vexing the dull
ear of a drowsy man." East Saturday
the major worked off the following to
a gathering of folk from Lawrence
county, Pennsylvania:
"My Fellow Cltiseno— The people have
a chance this year to take the Wilson
law off the statute bocks and put a good
American protective tariff law in its
place, which will provide adequate rev
enues for the government, and gladden
the home ol every American working
man. (Applause.) They have a chance
this year 10 prevent a frec-silvor law
going' on the Statute books nnd thus
keep our money of every kind now in
circulation as good as gold and preserve
our national name above reproach. If
they do not improve the chance now,
they will not have another opportunity
for year; ; . Does the workingman, the
farmer, the manufacturer want the
Wilson law to remain on the statute
books for four years longer? (Loud
cries of 'NO.') Do they want reciprocity,
which will give us a foreign market for
our surplus agricultural and manufac
tured products, to remain off the statute
books four years more? (Renewed
cries of 'No.') Do they want any law
enacted which Will compel them to re
ceive for their wages and products a
dollar worth less than 100 cents? (Cries
of 'No.') These are questions which
every voter In the country must answer
in his conscience, and by his vote next
November."
The Associated Press report says that
the crowd stood around "for an hour
waving banners anel beating tin hel
mets. The mottoes on these banners
were: 'We want back the good old
McKinley times'. We want the
furnaces and factories started, not
the rich man's silver mines.' 'Honest
money and a chance to earn it.' "
Well, well, what a great time it was,
to be sure. They wanted back the Jolly
old Homestead strike and the cut wages
of the "McKinley times." They didn't
want the restored wages that came
with the Wilson law. It must have been
a crowd of iron masters, sent by Carne
gie & Co. that carried this banner. Color
is lent to this surmise because they
were solicitous that iron and coal and
steel should be protected;—but silver?
No! d—n silver and the miners. They
wanted "honest money and a chance
to earn it;" but with gold cornered and
the mints closed to silver they will wait
long before they will get a chance to
earn dollars of any sort or kind.
Hut let us turn to the soul-stirring ora
tion of Major McKinleyy. He told them
that "this year the people had a chance"
—by electing him—"to tnke the Wilson
law off the statute books and enact an
American protective tariff law (not for
silver) which will provide adequate
rf venues f'jr the government, etc."
AYe may pause here to make a few
remarks. In the first place neither this
year, nor next year, nor the next, if
Major McKinley should be elected, will
there be any general modification of the
present tariff law. for the sufficient
reason that there will be too many free
silver men In congress to pass any tar
iff law until silver is admitted to the
I'nited States mints. In the second
place, if a tariff for revenue is passed
It will not be of tbe high protection
sort, for the McKinley law during its
brief existence converted a treasury
surplus of $105,000,000 to a deficit of $70,
--000,000. It Is certain that but for the
invalidity of the income tax (so deter
mined by an appointee of President
Harrison) the Wilson law would have
proved entirely adequate as a revenue
producer. But the best feature of the
Wilson law is that under it the wage
scale of the Carnegie workers was three
times raised, and thus "gladdened the
homes of American workingmen."
' They have a chance thin year," con
tinues the major, "to prevent a free sil
ver law going on the statute books and
thus keep our money of every kind now
in circulation as good as gold and pre
serve our national name abova re
proach."
Just how "our national name" can be
kept "beyond reproach" by getting on
our kneen to England to obtain her con
> "nt to permit us lo coin American silver
dollars —which, not only now, but al
ways have been nnd always will be as
good as gold—the major fails to ex
plain.
In conclusion, Major McKinley wants
reciprocity, which has been well de-
Cned as "free trade in spots." The orig
inal McKinley bill made James G. Blame
so angry that he crushed his new silk hat
with, a blow and declared it gave us "no
market for a single additional bushel of
wheat 01- another barrel of pork," and
demanded this "reciprocity" to which
McKinley reluctantly consented.
Hut the burden of bis song is now "a
tariff for revenue and reciprocity." Good
enough.
T. S. Van Dyke of this city is achieving
wire-spread notoriety for having chris
tened the silver party "the financial
bronco," this satire appearing in the
Forum. Hut it is well to remember that
tiie bronco in the best nort of steed to
get rid of an unprofitable incubus, and
also that the breed and spirit of the
prairies frequently haves its competi
tors in the rear—especially in a race
where staying powers tc-il.
"We must In this campaign face the
hostility of those who find a pecuniary
advantage In advocating the doctrine
of non-Interference when great aggre- |
nations of wealth arc trespassing upon j
:he rights of Individuals. We welcome !
such opposition! it is the highest in
dorsement which could be bestowed
upon us."—Bryan's Hpe: eh.
The supremacy <>f gold in England has
certainly not improved conditions for
the poor man. In the fifteenth century
; laborers received wages equivalent to ,
I about ft o£ our own currency; moreover, ■
there was an Increase of 50 per cent in
harvest time. Provisions and rent were
both extraordinarily cheap. Today the
English laborer ekes out a pittance and
supports a family on $2.50 a week, and
cats fresh meat on high days and holi
days. The autocracy of gold In England
has created a nation of plutocrats but
has straitened the life of the laborer
to such extremities that he Jumps at a
chance to leave bis native land.
That the confidence Bryan's support
ers are showing in his ultimate tri
umph Is not misplaced is con
firmed by daily advices. From In
diana comes the welcome Intelligence
that Bryan and free silver will carry by
a large majority. The Hon. W. H. Boy
les, secretary of the Indiana branch of
the Farmers' Mutual Benefit associa
tion, says:
I am certain from the outlook that
Bryan and free sliver will carry Indiana
! by from 60,000 to 75.000 majority, and it
would not surprise us to see it go to 100.
--000. Out of 50.000 farmers belonging to
our society I find that they stand as fol
| lows Republicans. 27,521; Democrats,
20,318: Populists 2100: Prohihitionists.
I 01. On the money question they stand
ias follows: For silver. Republicans,
20.093; Democrats, 10,777; Populists,
2100: Prohibitionists, 81. For gold. Be
pubilcans, 425; Democrats, 641; Popu
lists, none; Prohibitionists, 31.
Those, who insist that Bryan's influ
ence upon the people is ephemeral nnd
will evaporate before the idesof Novem
j ber, will, during the next nine week.-.
1 have occasion to label themselves false
I prophets. The enthusiasm for the caus?
jof free silver and the regard for Its un
| sullied and devoted champion are grow
! ing daily. The conviction in the justice
j nnd the benefit, of i.'.c restoration of sil
i ver is every tlay enhanced by the contl
! dence of the people In the dauntless de
fender of the cause.
As was generally expected Turkey re
fused to grant any concessions to the
Cretan rebels. Neither mercy, reason,
nor policy are to be founel in the charac
ter of the "unspeakable." There Is only
one force that will ever have any effect
upon Turkey, and that ls of superior
arms. The thrashing with which Euro
pean powers shoulel long ago have
taught Turkey the truths of justice and
civilization, is still deterred by the in
terest of European capitalists in Turk
ish bonds.
In the Herald's report of the meet
ing of the McKinley club addressed ljjr
Mr. Will A. Harris last Sat
urday night, the statement was made
that Mr. Garrett, who presided and in
troduced the speaker, was a clerk in
Mr. Harris" law office. Mr. L. R. Gar
rett Is well-known as an honorable and
creditable member of the Los Angeles
bar In full practice.
MR. BRYAN'S SPEECH
No orator that ever lived could read a
ten-column speech and hold a New
York audience of 12,000 intact to the
close. Nevertheless, no speech ever de
livered in this country was more widely
and carefully perused than Mr. Bryan's.
— Rochester Herald.
Bryan disappointed the New York
gold-bug papers by refusing to burn red
fire with the thermometer at 07. —Chi-
cago Dispatch.
Gold-bug papers find Bryan's speech
tiresome. It certainly Is calculated to
make a gold bug tired.—lndianapolis
Sentinel.
No public speaker of this generation
has had the faculty of crystallising his
propositions into such epigrammatic
sentences as Hon. William J. Bryan.
Every speech he has made in recent
years affords a large number of these
noteworthy sentences. He is the Jef
ferson of our time.—Columbus Evening
Press.
Ths Candidate
After taking 1"1 ballots, the congres
sional convention of the Sixth district
nominated a candidate for congress in
the person of Harry W. Patton of Los
Angeles county. The contest was one
of the most extraordinary ever held In
the state, the convention remaining
d'-adlocked for several weeks. It is
gratifying to know that from such a
struggle ensued a splendid nomination.
Mr. 1-atton ls one of the most highly
respected citizens of the southland, and
has frequently been honored by his
party for his unflinching adherence to
the principles of Democracy. Mr. Pat
ton was a delegate to the national con
vention four years ago. He lias an
nounced his intention of entering into
the fight at once- and will visit every
city and hamlet in his district.
These be days of political whirlwinds,
and the breezes blow from unexpected
quarters. The Rose-Patton congres
| sional contest at Los Angeles came to
an end Thursday, when both gentlemen
withdrew after more than one hundred
I ballots had been taken, 36 to 36, and Ed
! itor Harry Patton of the Capital picked
lup Cue honor on second ballot. lie was
a newspaper reporter in the house a
dozen or more years ago, and like Scna
tr>r Gorman, has looked forward to the
I time when he should be able to help
] formulate tbe country's laws. Ten
■ years' acquaintance enables us to say
that Mr. I'atton has "a charming per
sonality." and a good fund of political
Information and would be an effective
1 speaker on tlv floor. We must commend
i him.

AT THE THEATERS
ORPHECM.—As Is the rule at this
popular liouse the "standing room only"
sign was very much In evidence last
night long before the rise of the curtain.
Snow and (Mark opened tbe bill with
their laughable comedy skit which,
while this is the third week of Its presen
tation, was. owing to the exceeding pop
ularity of Snow, received with as much
satisfaction as on the occasion when its
originators gave their first performance
line. Btiltman and Mooec again pre
sented their comedietta, Mistaken
Identity, giving a number of new songs
and dances. They were followed by
Lillian Mason, who is an old-time favor
ite at this house. Miss Mason had a
most enthusiastic reception, being the
recipient of an armful of flowers nnd
having her songs applauded to the echo.
Staley and Birbeck again presented
'their quick change musical act ending
with Miss Birbeck performing splits and
doing lur wonderful high kicking turn
with the most marvelous ease.
The lust act of the popular program
was the first appearance here of T. a.
Kennedy, the celebrated hypnotist, to
whose wonderful skill the New York and
San Francisco papers have been devot
ing so much space. Mr. Kennedy fully
comes up to bis reputation. He uses
wonderful powers for mirth provoking
purposes alone and keeps his audience
In an uproar of laughter by making his
subjects do all sorts of mirth provoking
things and to assume the most ridiculous
positions which cause them the utmost
surprise when tbey arc again restored to
tlii' control of their actions, A wonder
ful exhibition, truly, wherein the scien
tific, humorous and pathetic are strong
ly blended and one well worth the see
ing. It is safe to predict that this one
feature alone would pack the theater to
the doors during Its stay us it is the most
wonderful exhibition of the kind ever
seen on any stage.

BOS ANGELES THEATER—CharIes
Frohman's stock company from the
Empire theater, New York, is now play
ing its seventh annual lour, lt opens at
the Los Angeles theater tonight lv The
Masqueraders. Mr. Frohmnn has been
steadily strengthening this organiza
tion until it is today one of the finest
theatrical companies in the country.
Every player has experience as well as
reputation. There are scarcely any
fto. k companies left now but the bril
liancy of the Empire company's engage
ments at its home theater and of its
various tours would seem to indicate
that the public has by no means tired of
seeing a play as presented by a symme
trical cast, The history of the Empire
company shows that the best plays of
the leading dramatists, both foreign and
native, have been included In Its reper
toire. On no previous tour has the com
pany been supplied with pieces so well
adapted, in the opinion of the manage
ment, to illustrate Its versatility, both
in light comedy and intense drama. Al
though the trip mapped out for the Em
pire this season has already taken it
from the Atlantic to the Pacific sea
board, the company takes with it all the
costumes and appropriate scenery that
have marked the metropolitan runs. In
fact, looked at from every point of view,
tiie presentations here, it is announced,
will be exactly on a par with those of the
engagements in New York, and previous
ly in London.
The leading woman ls Miss Viola Al
len, who has occupied that position sev
eral seasons. Miss Allen, through her
performances of leading roles In support
of Tomnso Sarvinl, Thomas Jefferson
and other leading stars, ami her perform
ances of late under Charles Frohman's
direction, has become acknowledged as
one of our most successful emotional ac
tresses. Th" leading man is Mr. 'Will
iam FraverSham, who, although new to
his present position, has played import
ant parts in the Empire casts for 8 num
ber of seasons and has distinguished
himself therein.
Other players worthy of much more
than passing comment are J. B. Dodson,
who came to this country ns the leading
character actor with Mr. and Mrs. Kgn
dal; May Robson, considered by many
the best eccentric commedlene on this
side of the Atlantic; Annie Irish, Ida
Conquest. Mrs. Thomas Whiffen. Jane
Harwar, Ellen Gall, Katherine Mulklns,
■ Lottie Nicholl, Robert Edeson, Ferdi
nand Gottschalk, E. Y. Backus, W. H.

;ed Wednesday evening and Saturday

•be presented on Friday evening and
Clyde Fltche's comedy Bohemia on
Thursday and Saturday evenings.
THE BURBANK. —Another large au
dience greeted Sheridan's clever players
in Klllarney last evening at the Bur
bank. Miss Gassman is very clever In
the dual rede of Ktity Burke and Teddy.
Miss EHimett herself could take a few
lessons from this chic little artist. Gil
bert and Goldle make a hit us usual. The
singing and dancing is typical of the
early days of "old Ireland." and are all
new. The scenic effects and stn'-;" s i
tlngs are exceptionally attractive. Kil
larney will be given the balance of the
week and Saturday night.
