Report of the fleetlnz
If the Hon. James McLaehlan and
Colonel Harrison Cray Otis had last
evening dropped in at No. 138 South
Broadway tbey would have perhaps
been convinced of the fact that there
are in Los Angeles Republicans of
standing in the commercial and profes
sional world of the city who are ardent
friends of the white metal, and who pro
pose to vote to sustain it at the polls in
November.
The Honorable James would also have
had the pleasure of hearing himself re
pudiated by a body of bis past partisans
—men of influence nnd standing in the
community, and none of them office
seekers.
Colonel Harrison Gray Otis would
have seen that the abusive campaign
he is making against the white metal
and its advocates was not only failing
to make converts to the cause of gold
monometallism, but he could have
learned that it was causing Republicans
to desert Hanna and the yellow stand
ard.
PACKED TO ( THE DOORS.
It was after 7:30 p. m. when Suther
land Hutton called to order the meeting
of the silver Republicans at No. 133
South Broadway. It was expected that
thirty or forty Republicans would as
semble pursuant to the call printed for
the meeting to consider what steps were
necessary to be taken in regard to tho
action of James McLaehlan In accept
ing the Republican nomination for con
gress in this district, and then repudi
ating the platform upon which he was
nominated.
But instead of the thirty or forty Re
publicans expected over one hundred
and fifty gathered. The room was
packed to the very doors. Many stood
up and waited for hours to listen to
tho proceedings and to participate.
Many of them were old wheel horses in
the party, and they were alt Republi
cans, or at least they have been in the
past.
The Hon. James was repudiated by a
unanimous vote, and it was resolved to
organize at once a Republican silver
c lub, to the roll of which 1178 signatures
have already been secured.
A temporary organization was formed,
the proper committee appointed, and
an adjournment taken for one week.
An address will be issued to the Re
publicans ol> the entire Sixth congres
sional district, advising and counseling
them to turn Mr. McLaehlan down at
the polls for his cowardly betrayal of sil
ver at the *chest of the Republican
bosses.
JAMES GRIDIRONED.
After Mr. Hutton had called the meet
ing to order last evening, Nathan Cole,
Jr., read the Invitation which had
brought the gathering about. Mr. Hut
ton explained that the action of Mr. Mc-
Laehlan in repudiating the platform on
which he had been nominated had been
unsatisfactory to many ot the dele
gates to the Republican convention that
had named him, and they had taken
steps to bring about the meting to con
sider the proper steps to be taken. He
announced that the llrst order of busi
ness was the election of temporary ofli
ce rs.
George W. Knox was placed in nomi
nation for temporary chairman and he
was unanimously chosen. In taking the
chair, he said:
"Mr. Chairman, Gentlemen and Fellow-
Republicans: I was not one of those
who deliberated In the matter of calling
this meeting, but the idea met with my
sentiments exactly. I have been a Re
publican all my life, but I am now un
able to indorse the Republican platform
and vote for the Republican candidate
for president. The object of this meet
ing is to take action in reference to
James McLaehlan, the Republican nom
inee for congress. He was named at
Sacramento on a silver platform, which
he has repudiated. It is now for you to
do what you think proper—either to
approve or disapprove of his action. If
you repudiate him, then we must con
sider the next step to be taken."
Nathan Cole, Jr., was chosen unani
mously as secretary. He read the fol
lowing letter from Judge E. H, Larnme,
which was greeted with applause:
JUDGE LAMME'S LETTER.
Mr. Sutherland Hutton, City:
Dear Sir: I have received tho invita
tion of yourself and others to attend the
conference of free silver Republicans to
consider what action should be taken
with reference to the position of our con
gressional candidate. The action of Mr
McLaehlan in repudiating the platform
upon which he was nominated of course
absolves all Republicans from giving
him further support. It is the duty of
all believers in free silver to so unite as
to make their votes count at the com
ing election. While it will be Impossible
for me to be present Tuesday evening
the movement has my full and hearty
support, and I will take pleasure In
doing anything that will further the
cause.
My suggestion would be that this
meeting simply appoint a committee to
arrange for a full meeting of all the Re
publican supporters of free silverat some
..time in the near future and that an or
ganized effort be made to so unite and
combine upon some one candidate that
will receive the full support of alrT.hoso
opposed to the single gold standard.
You may count upon me to do any
thing within my power in the matter.
Very respectfully, E. H. LAMME,
Major M. Jj. Starin, one of the dele
gates to the Sacramento convention,
which made McLaehlan the Republican
nominee for congress, made a telling
speech in which he said:
"I have been a Republican ever since
I was a voter and I was a delegate to the
convention which named Mr. McLaeh
lan. Without a dissenting voice that
convention inserted a silver plank in, the
platform. It was a convention made up
of eminent men, yet Mr. McLaehlan has
seen fit to repudiate that platform. He
tells us he has never been a friend of
silver, yet he voted with the silverltes
in congress. He has now repudiated |
himself. (Laughter.) This meeting, the
men and the members present, clarly
demonstrates the feeling of the true Re
publicans for silver. The thing for us
to do is to perfect a permanent organiza
tion and go to work to defeat Mr. Mc-
Laehlan," At this there was loud ap
plause.
Col. I. R. Dunkelberger stated that he
had been a life-long Republican'but ho
could not vote for a silver president and
a gfdd man for congress, llut before he
voted for anybody for congress he
wanted lo know absolutely that he was
a friend of silver.
Chairman Knox stated that the prop
osition before the meeting was to either
indorse or reject Mr. McLaehlan.
S. A. Carver made a ringing speech,
in the course of which he said:
OUR COUNTRY FIRST—PARTY
AFTER
"Wo take this step not because we love
the Republican party less for Its past
history, hut because we love the pro
gress of our country and the p-"-p—jfy
of the whide people more. It ls not ue
cessary to dwell on the relation of our
party to the past at this time. We are
lighting battles not in the dead past,
but iv the living present. We all ap
preciate the gravity of the situation.
We stand In the light of bring repudla ted
by a fellow citizen whom we have taken
up and honored. Now he turns around
W illi gracious majesty, much Impressed
jby tiie Importance we have given him,
nnd tells us that he has repudiated us.
By this token he has released us from
any obligation to support him, and it
is now time for us to repudiate him.
"I have heard Mr. McLaehlan declare
himself unequivocally in favor of free
coinage. This he did yp to within a
few days prior to the issuance of his
letter declaring for the gold standard.
He raid that he was going to make a
campaign for silver. He went to San
] Francisco, there saw a great light, and
came back to us a gnldbug.
"My idea is to organize a Silver Re
publican dull. This movement has
grown far beyond our expectations. We
have now 278 men signed up who are
Republicans. We can get nt. least 800
signatures, and each man has his inllu
ence and can bring others into the camp.
I know that I can get ten Republican
votes for silver m%self.
"I canvassed my own neighborhood,
and In one hour interviewed nineteen
Republicans. Ten were silver, six on
| the fence, and three were for gold. What
| we want to get is the on-the-fenoe vote,
and to do it we must perfect a perma
■ nent organization to do effective work.
If we get In now we can get tho man
. who is in doubt. The Republican corh
] rnittee is after him, but we have right,
Justice and reason on our side.
] "Let us carry this silver light into
I the home. Tho men want literature.
They hunger for it. If I had an armload
I could distribute it in fifteen minutes.
"My friends and fellow Republicans,
upon tbe settlement of this issue of sil
ver depends the destiny of our coun
try."
Mr. Carver moved that a membership
commnttee of sixteen be appointed to
secure noMess than 500 signatures for
the formation of a Silver Republican
(lull.
"MR. MURPHY OF THE SIXTH."
J. L. Murphy made some pointed re
marks, in the course of which he said:
"I think tiie figure should be placed
not lower tban the 1000 mark. lam in
favor of letting the Republicans of the
entire district know how this meeting
si amis. None of us are office-seekers
A\ c are here for principle. Wo must sim
ply let the Democrats and Republicans
know that there must be but one c .„ n .
gresslonal candidate In the field and
that if he is a silver man we are for
him.
I am glad to see so many ofmvoM
Republican friends hero this evening
It looks like a Republican convention'
but we are more terribly in earnest now
than we ever were before.
"As between Bryan and stiver and Mc-
Kinley and gold, I look unon Bryan as
the better Republican of the two' Mc-
Kinley himself is mi right. I think, but
he is in the hands of Hanna. Sherman &
Co. I heard Mr. McLaehlan say the
day before he took his stand for gold
that he was for silver, and I know that
half the Republicans of Los Angeles
county are. (Loud Applause.)
On motion of Dr. Dodge, the action of
the delegates to Sacramento, in issuing
an open letter denouncing Mr. Mc-
Laehlan for repudiating the platform
the convention put forth, was by a
unanimous vote adopted.
M'LACHLAN REPUDIATED.
R. W. Wood offered the following res
olution, which was unanimously
adopted:
Whereas, James McLaehlan accepted
the nomination of the Republican party
ot the Sixth congressional district, but

eighty-seven were for silver. Mr. Rob
erts stated that ho had organized the
first Republican county committee in
Los Angeles county, but he was a Re
publican no longer.
J. 13,. Young of Pasadena said that he
had voted for every Republican presi
dent from Lincoln to Harrison, but he
was a friend of silver and had reached
the parting of the ways.
Henry T. Hazard was received with
applause, and made one of his earnest,
enthusiastic talks in which he said:
"We have repudiated McLaehlan, and
now we want either the Democratic or
the Populist candidate for congress
withdrawn. We do not propose to dic
tate which one shall be taken down,
but we must all vote together with the
silverltes and elect a silver man to con
gress from this district. It Is all impor
tant that we do this. We have no pref
enence. All we want is to help send a
free silver vote to the national house of
representatives from this congressional
district." (Loud applause.)
Judge Phillips made a brief speech en
dorsing silver. In which he stated that
thero was a Union Silver club in exis
tence In the city which already had a
membership of 'i-00. This remark was
loudly applauded.

and the chair appointed the following
committee:
J. L. Murphey, Paul H. Blades, Suth
erland Hutton, Rev. George E. Dye,

was called out. and given an enthusias
tic greeting. Mr. Blades stated that he
had always been a staunch Republican,
but that he was opposed unqualifiedly
to the election of Mr. McLaehlan to
congress. He had himself interviewed
Mr. McLaehlan, who had assured him
that he was for silver, but later the
LOS AjNTGrEEES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MOBOTIfG, AUGUST 26, 1896.

EVERYBODY TALKING SILVER
Streets In Chicago Blocked by the I .erne
Crowds
Last week the New s printed an inter
view with Meyer Harrison, of the Penn
sylvania Mutual, in which that gentle
man said that ho had witnessed half a
dozen crowds within a single block in
Chicago whero the sole subject of dls
■ CUSBion was silver, says the Rocky
Mountain News of Denver. Mr. Harri
son added that he did not expect Denver
I people to believe the assertion, it was
such a radical change in a few months,
but he repeated the story as based on
| personal observation, He told of the
| strong feeling that, prevailed and said
j that the remarks of many of the speak
ers were cheered as though there was a
hug" political meeting In progress. All
these statements were taken with due
allowance for the er.thuilasin of Mr.
Harrison, but now comes the Chronicle,
a rabid gold bur paper of Chicago, with
tne following announcement:
I "Street debates on the money question
have been placed under the bun of Chief
Badenoch, ami a general edict against
unlicensed political oratory has bee:: is
sued by the police. The first offense un
der the new ruling was committed last
night, and officers promptly put the as
semblage two rout.
"Two campaign orators held forth at
the west crossing of Madison and Dear
born streets at 7:.'!0 oclock last night/,
and as audience of 1000 had assembled
to egg the debaters on, the throng be
came so dense that pedestrians were ob
bliged to take tbe street car tracks in the
middle of the two thoroughfares to pass
by. At times the crowds occupied th"
tracks, nearly causing a blockade of the
I street cars. Complaints were made to
Inspector Pitzpatriok of crowds that had
gathered for the same purpose of previ
ous evenings, storekeepers In the vicin
ity being the most disturbed by the as
semblages and their business interfer
red with,
"Short/y before X oclock Lieutenant
Preston, with Officers McCann, Gurney
and Reidy, told the crowd and the de
baters to 'move on.' Before the order
was obeyed the crowd required consid
erable pushing by the officers, and not
a few of the dilatory ones felt clubs on
their backs before they understood that
the police meant business. When the
sidewalks hud finally been cleared the
crowd follow ed the speakers, to the alley
between Madison and Washington
streets, in Clark street. Here a colored
agitator held a crowd's attention. Lieu
tenant Preston made the listeners'move
on.' After this the crowd, paying no
attention to the police, quickly gathered
at Madison and Dearborn streets to ar
rest any speakers who took the places
of the ones driven away earlier in the
evening.
Threat! of arresting the speakers and
a ride in Ihe patrol wagon quickly in
duced the assemblage to disperse. After
the last man had left Officer McCann
was detailed to patrol the vicinity of
Madison and Dearborn streets to arrest
any speaker who attempted to expound
currency arguments for the benefit of
unenlightened voters.
"During the first demonstration at
Madison and Dearborn streets 'Smiling
Frank Mason and Harry Manning said
to be two well known pickpockets, min
gled with the crowd and took pert in the
arguments. While Mason was trying
to show how the currency question ap
plied to the laboring man, it is alleged he
attempted to pick several pocket' Rv
Standers detected him, aud called De
tectives McCaffery and Fay, who ar
rested the men. No complaints w> re
lodged against them at the station."

LOST HIS CASE
Oficer Shields Meets a Riverse-Stotterbcck
Acquitted
Officer J. J. Shields yesterday lost the
first case that has gone against him
since he became a member of the po
lice force a year and a half ago The offi
cer appeared in the police court as pros
ecutor against Harry Slotterbeck, alias
W. C. Smith, wdto was arrested last Sun
day for fast driving on Figueroa street.
Shields testified that the defendant.who
appeared to be intoxicated, was speed
ing his horse for half a dozen blocks
at a tremendous pace. It was not a
case'of runaway, in his opinion, as the
driver was whooping and yelling with
the evident purpose of getting more
speed out of the animal. When the offi
cer tried to stop him, he was told to
get out of the way or he would be run
over. The horse was reeking with sweat
from the violent exercise. Shields had
no witnesses to support his testimony.
Slotterbeck was more fortunate. Be
sides his own testimony he had that of
several witnesses, all of whom swore
that the defendant was not drunk and
that he was not driving the horse him
self, and furthermore the horse was
not driven rapidly. The preponderance
of evidence was in favor the defense,
and Justice Owens dismissed the case.
Officer Shields insists that he is neithot
a liar nor a perjurer, and declares that
he had good cause to make the arrest,
the evidence of the defendant and lllrt
witnesses to the contrary notwithstan<4'

COPPER KING MINE
It Promises to Be a Second Anaconda or
Better
According to reports received in this
city yesterday the Copper King mine,
situated thirty miles due east of Fresno,
will be a second Anaconda. The mine is
owned and operated by the Los Angeles
Petroleum and Smelting and Mining
company, with offices in this city.
Although but little more than de
velopment work has yet been
done, there are nearly 1000 tons of ore
on the dump and the output could be
increased to fifty tons a day at present,
and 200 tons daily in the near future.
Three day and two night shifts are work
ed continually in opening up the ledge
which is said to be part of the mother
lode. The ore is very rich, fifty assays
showing an average of Hi per cent pure
copper. All assays also show gold rang
ing from G2 cents to $19 a ton, and from
3 to 11 ounces of silver to the ton. The
combination of the three metals is said,
to make the ore richer than that of the
famous Anaconda mine, and the owners
confidently expect to take out many
millions of dollars. One tunnel has
been driven 250 feet into solid ore, the
ledge being from one to twenty-eight
feet in width and increasing in richness
as the work progresses. Dr. J. H. Bry
ant of this city is one of the principal
owners.
MINING EXCHANGE
New Life to Be Put Into the Languishing In
stitution
There was a well attended meeting of
the Mining Exchange yesterday even
ing to consider ways and means for
infusing life into the institution, which
has shown a disposition to languish. It
was the unanimous sentiment of those
present that renewed efforts should be
made to work up interest in the organ
ization. It was urged that all the mem
bers should be more prompt in attend
ing meetings and call board sales, as
by so doing the permanency of the ex
change would be assured.
After a general discussion of the sub
ject by those present a committee of
five was appointeii to devise means for
giving the organization a new impetus.
The committee, which is composed of
Messrs. W. E. Howard, C. White Mor
timer, W. T. Smith, Frank Wiggins and
Dr. J. H. Bryant, will meet Thursday
at 3 p. in.

A NEIGHBORHOOD ROW
Deputy District Attorney James Waxes Wroth
in Court
The trial of little Arthur Norgust for
disturbing the peace brought a large
portion of the female and Juvenile pop
ulation of Bunker Hill to Justice Owens'
court yesterday afternoon. Women and
children, dressed in their best bibs and
tuckers, nearly filled the dingy court
room, and it seemed more like a holiday
occasion than a criminal trial.
The boy defendant was charged with
having disturbed the peace of the neigh
borhood by using naughty language in
the hearing of neighbors with whom the
Norgust lamily were not on good terms.
In fact, it was asserted little Arthur
swore at some of the good people resid
ing on Bunker Hill and called jbem
ugly names.
The testimony given against the boy
showed that it was a neighborhood row
in which .some older heads than Arthur's
were concerned. Deputy District At
torney James, therefore, moved the dis
missal of the case, and remarked if he
had been asked for a complaint he would
have yanked a lot of the adults into
Court instead of this little boy.
The complaint was accordingly dis
missed and the women interested In the
case adjourned to the sidewalk, where
the circumstances were talked over in
a very animated way and will doubt
less remain a subject of gossip for some
time to come.
LUCAS BEHIND THE BARS
A Young Man Charged With Embezzling Fur-
niture
A young man name A. J. Lucas is ba»
hind the bars of the city jail to answer
the charge of embezzlement preferred
by J. D. Steele & Co., second hand fur
niture dealers on Main street. Luo&a
came to this city several months ag>»
with his mother and sister and set ujp
housekeeping on Crocker street. The*/
bought some furniture from Steele Sr,
Co., but were not able to pay for all oi
it at the time. Several days ago wheat
acolleetor called on Lucas for the money
due on the goods, he was requested to
call again later in the day. Whin tlva
collector had returned he found that tho
Lucases had moved out. An investiga
tion proved, so the Steeles allege, th**;
the furniture on which they had a Ilea
had been sold to a second hand dealer
occupying a store adjoining their own.
A warrant for the arrest of Lucas wai
sworn out, and yesterday J. D. Steelfj
Jr., found Lucas with his trunks packet!
and on the point of leaving the oittp.
and detained him until Deputy Sheriff
White came and placed him under aJ*»
rest. The amount involved in the al"
leged swindle is only about $10, but $2»
bail is required, Which Lucas has so
far been unable to raise.
Every nea! Is c. Trial
To the dyspeptic. Flatulence, heartburn,
oppressive fullness of the stomach are the
inevitable sequences of his use of the knife
and fork. To say of him that he gratifies
the cravings of appetite would be genuine
satire. He only appeases them. Is relief
attainable? Certainly, and by the use of a
pleasant»s wclWis thorough remedy. Hos
tetter's Stomach Bitters. Will it cure im
mediately? Certainly not—it does not ef
fect miracles. But it does give prompt
and unspeakable relief, and will, if per
sisted in. produce an ultimate cure. A'ot
only does it impart relish to the food, but
promotes its conversion by the stomach
Into rich, health and strength-sustaining
blood. Supersensitireness of the nerves,
mental depression and unquiet slumber,
produced by interruption of the digestive
functions, are also remedied hy it. It is
the finest preventive and curative of malar
ial disorders, and relieves constipation,
rheumatism, kidney and bladder ailments
and liver complaint.

READ THIS LETTER
_ ~ Los angkles. January I.ISBB.
To the public: i wus seriously aflllcted
for about ten years with lung, liver and
kidney troubles. Tongue could nevi r ex
press the misery I endured during those
years. 1 was reduced in flesh until i wan
a mere skeleton. My sight and hearing
were badly impaired: wus constantly
troubled with constipation and piles, and
had a severs chronic cough. In short, life
was a burden and (ieutli would have been
welcome. 1 was treated by various spec
ialists without avail. 1 finally resolved to
give Dr. Wong Him. of No. 639 Upper Main
i Btreet, a trial. Of course, like many others,
i 1 had no faith In a Chinese doctor, bill it
look only a few doses of his life-givinii
, herbs to knock all tho skepticism out of
me. In just five weeks the doctor pronoun
; cod me cured, und now 1 can truthfully say
1 that i was never healthier and never felt
! better in ray life. My sight and bearing
i are both fully restored: that obnoxious
) cough, constipation and piles are entirely
cured, and 1 am rapidly gaining i:i flesh,
having guiiied forty pounds in two months,
i I earnestly recommend ail sufferers and
! skeptics to give the doctor ;i trial and bo
I convinced of his superior skill as a phy
sician.
