Sworn statement of circulation published on distilled pajc. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 26, 1806 National Democratic Ticket For President, WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN Of Nebraska. For Vice-President, ARTHUR SEWALL Of Maine. Those mills will not open without the mints. Mr. Cleveland is posing as a piscato rial sphinx. There will not be any very heavy labor for a committee on credentials at Indian apolis. Mr. McKinley has amplified his "full dollar" by calling it "unquestioned coin." There seems to be every probability of a bolters" bolt at Indianapolis next month. IA Hung Chang offsets the fact of his wearing a yellow jacket by smoking a silver pipe. The lord chief justice of England has been royally entertained and will return with still firmer convictions as to tin rosy prospects of international arbitra tion. What guarantee has th- voter that Mr. McLaehlan will not discover some "personal convictions" that San Pedro is not really such a good site for a har bor as Santa Monica? Plerrepont Morgan has given Mr. Hanna to understand that money is no object in this campaign. Is this another way of insisting that the tariff is the issue. Bourke Cockran, it must be remem bered, is a New York lawyer who lias, for a consideration, accepted briefs of even mitre desperate causes than that which he is at present attempting to defend. Mr. Bryan will beard the lion in his den. That does not mean that he con templates another visit to Canton, bu; he intends shortly to Invad ■ tin- home of Hanna's business industries, Cleve land, Ohio. The Interview with the- Hon. Mark Smith of Phoenix, Ariz., published in today's issue of The Herald, will be lead with wide interest. Mr. Smith has re sided for sixteen yea:.- in Arizona, dur ing eight of which he repres nt. d tin territory in congress, Tie- value of his experience of Arizona i v enhanced by extensive travel, and Mr. Smith finds that the demand of the Arizona miner ls the same as that of the fisherman of Florida .the farmer of Kentucky, and the laboring man in Washington. A patent medicine company is the I latest concern to fall in lute with the "object lessons" Instituted at Mark Hanna's suggestion, and litis flic cobissal Impudence to attempt to Intimidate newspapers by deciding to told the fol lowing condition to all its contracts made for advertising: ' it is agreed that should the Free Silver Candidate Bry an be elected, the company have the privilege of canceling litis contract." The redeeming feature of the imperti nence is its grotesque humor. The Grand Rapids Press, independ ent Republican in politics, points oui the fallacy of the argument that in casi free silver is adopted, this country will become the dumping' ground for silver from till the world: Even if free coinage carries the day, there is no reason to expect that any large quantlti a of .-■;!■,■ r will be shippi • Into the country from abroad. Nor, Obould there be an influx such at- is pi i - dieted. Is there any reason to fear lt. The man w ho sends silver here is going to do one of two things. He is going to exchange it for merchandise, or he is going to leave it here to form a part of the working capital of (he country. If he buys goods with lt. he must pay what we ask for them. Nobody will be compelled to sell to him Unless he wants to nor unless be prefer? the Silver rather than the goods. The transaction, there fore, will be a beneficial one. if the foreigner dec Ides to leave his money hero, he will either Invest i: Ie some business or will loan it to some one who will. There is. therefore, nothing lv our becoming the dumping ground for silver which need excite alarm. THE MEANING OF COIN "Coin." What docs it mean? Th? great financial battle rages round this one word. The business prosperity of the country depends upon its true in terpretation. It cannot be applied to any kind of paper. It is a stamp and an impress given by a machine to certain kinds of metals, defining their weight, fineness and value. It has been said •that the coin stamp only certifies to weight and fineness, but when Hamilton and Jefferson established our financial system they enacted by law that 412.5 grains of silver should be equivalent to 0:10 dollar or one hundred cents, and that US.X grains of gold should be equal to one dollar or one hundred cents, and being equal to the same thing, were equal to one another. The physical qualities of gold and silver caused them to be selected to represent, when coined, certain values, and from the opening of our mints in 17it2 down to a recent date, the word "coin" has meant either gold or silver, the word grain commonly means in this country wheat or corn. An order payable In grain can br honestly paid In arty kind of grain, nt the option of the payer, but if the order calls for wheat grain, then it must In: paid in wheat. A debt payable in coin haves the option fur the payer, not for the payee. Here Is where financial trouble began. Mr. Foster chose to con strue the word "coin" to mean gold, and Mr. Carlisle followed In his footsteps. In Mr. Sherman's recent speech ut Co lumbus. Ohio, every word of which was no doubt carefully weighed, while dis cussing the Bland-Allison act, he said: " It also provided that any holder of the coin author ized by the act might deposit the same with the treasury In sums of not less than $10" (What coin? Of course, the silver coin created by the act) "and (hat the coin deposited should be re tained in the treasury for tin- payment of certificates on domhnd." Nov.. if the word "coin" necessarily means gold, how is it that Mr. Sherman means the sliver dollar in this case? Had Mr. Carlisle paid every green bank or treasury note with silver dol lars, there never would have been a run on the treasury, nor any occasion for new bond issues. It Is said that a run on tho treasury was contemplated while Mr. Manning was treasurer, but he checked it instantly by telling the Wall street, gambler that he would meet their demands with silver, and the raid accordingly was abandoned. When Mr.Bryan becomes president, all debts payable in coin will be met in gold or silver, as it may suit the linan clal condition of the treasury at the time. But says Mr. GoldbUff, "Such a course will put us on a silver basis, and ruin the country." How would it ruin the country, even If we were on a silver basis? The Bank of England suspended specie payment in 1707. and did not re sume till 1821. France suspended spe cie payment in IMS, and did nut resume till 1851) and suspended again in her great war of IS7O. Soon after the begin ning of the c ivil war all our bnnks sus pended specie payment and all were on a paper basis from ISGI to l-> 73. Do the annals of our country show greater prosperity than between ISfir, and 1SS0? During that time more railroads were constructed, more agricultural lands opened, more manufactories estab lished, more labor employed, and better wages paid than in any period of our history. The farmer, the laborer, the miner, the manufacturer, the tradesman, the mass of struggling wage-earners look longingly for just such another period of prosperity. The Important consideration should be borne in mind that, unlike the green back, silver would not be credit money thing more precious than itself, BJlver would be Us own, as well as the coun try's, redeemer. THE TEMPLE OF ROSES Adverting to an Interesting; story pub lished in the news columns ot the Her known as the World's Templara of Roses, recently started with some of the wealthiest people of the country as been gleaned substantiating the re port as an undoubted fact. The prominent persons Interested who In Southern California with a view to building the Temple cf Roses for the drama, to be held during one month of each year, are to visit Los Angelea within ten days.

EUROPEAN FINANCIERS Some time previous to the meeting of the Chicago convention a New York pnp-»r arranged to secure expressions of opinion from the leading European bi metalllstS on the effect of the independ ent, free and unlimited coinage of silver by the United States. The St. Louis Re public summarise! these statements as follows: The Interviews nre of deep Interest are Important at the present tine. None of th stalfiunen Interviewed, except Dr. Otto Arendt of Germany, saw ills aster In tne free coinage of silver by the [Inlte 1 Suites. Dr. Arendt, while fearing thai what he culled "a rash ex pei ie 1" would retard the movement, insisted that the victory of silver in the i'nited Btates would place in the hands of the president nnd congress the power to iarce Europe Into an international agreement. He was convinced, lie said, tiiat when the Wall street financiers saw how things were going they would move heaven and earth to get Europe into line and that they would probably Tho Light Hon. Henry Chaplin, pres ident of the local board, and a member of the Salisbury cabinet, expressed the 1 pinion that free coinage ill this country would In |p rather than hinder an In ternational agreement, nnd remarked: "I know of nothing to prevent Amerlca doing with success what was accom plished by France and the Latin Union." Van Kardorff Wobnlta, member of the German relchatag, aald that "an ener getic silver policy on tbe part of the United States could only promote the cause of International bimetallism," and that he believed "the credit of the I'nit ed States would lu 1 Improved, not im paired, by such n policy, whereas the maintenance Of the present system would necessitate continuous and heavy loans id' gold, Which must ultimately lead to a gold premium." Tbe French blmetallista quoted, among whom are Senator Edward Fougelrol, Deputy Foquet, M. Jounait. late minister of public works and mem ber of the court of commerce and indus try: M. Edtnond Thierry, the distin guished writer on economical quest ions, are even more encouraging in their opinion. Tbey believe that the triumph of the silver movement in America will have a decisive effect on the action of France, Germany and Russia, and, ul timately, on Great Britain. They think that Europe will be forced into an agree ment European blmetallista express the be lief that the disturbance, if any follows the free coinage of silver, will be slight and temporary, and will be damaging rather to Europe than to the I'nited States. There are conservative men and gen ulne blmetallists uiio favor an interna tional agreement, Their opinions should have great weight with business men who are timid about the effects of changes In the monetary system. It should reassure them to learn that these men fear no serious effect, but On the contrary see in the triumph of the Dem -0 iratlc party an opportunity, by the Ju -1 Iclous use of the power placed In its hands, to accomplish a work of inesti mable benefit tt) the people rot only of the United States, but of the world. I The business men may rest assured that th" country Will be safe and will I be in a position to reap prosperity in the event of Democratic success. CiCLISTS DENTED INSURANCE Even lesa popular, perhaps, than th" political circulars issued by some down east insurance companies in the interest of Mark Manna's candidate and the gold standard, will be the invidious action of accident insurance companies in Boston and X> w York, in denying insurance to bicycle girls. The New York Journal .says that the companies refuse to In sure bicycllennea because they file friv olous claims for damages. Just think of it, girls! ••-V cident insurance policies," says the Journal "usually call for the pay ment of $6000 i.i vase cf death, and in case ot disability the weekly payments range from $7 to a week, according to the extent of the injuries. The a v nual payment to secure this insurance ranges from %i to $20 in different com panies. Scarcely a day passes that fem inine bicycle riders do not visit the in surance companies as applicants for i policii 8, but now they are told they can not be insured under the rules agreed to ! "In the-early stage of bicycling women V.ere insured, and it was found that claims tor trivial or imaginary injuries were made by them so frequently and persistently that the underwriters would be bankrupted if one-half nf them wife paid. So the companies at/a joint meeting made a rule that women bicy clist-; should be debarred from accident policies. "Ail women are not excluded, however, Those who possess separate estates ami ! who an- engaged in business which re j quires their personal attention and in volves travel by rail or steamer are I treated as desirable risks.

Bicycle riding is not consid ered 'extra .hazardous' except in the ! cast of professional riders.

"A mgetlng of representatives of acci dent Insurance companies was recently ; h (Id in Boston, at which it wus decided that bicycling riding is extra 'hazardous' : and tt.i.i premiums higher than the or ' dlnary must be charged. This view was j not act epted by the underwriters in N ■ rork City. They have more bicycle ! rider.- on their Hats than persons of any I business or profession." Tin- fall of the price of silver cer tificates a couple of points during thi last month on the New York market Ie being held up be the Republican press as it proof of diludeneo In Hryan's suc cess. Bi cause the Wall-street gamblers have confidence in the strength of their .cold, they will endeavor to depreciate Bilver, but it is very far from reflecting tho sentiment of the country. A v. ry pleasant little picnic party tor an eastern excursion was organised yi sterday afternoon. Eight well - known and respected clttaens will Journey to Indianapolis to assist at the ceremonies of the self-constituted "National Democratic" convention. These delegates will, ac cording to a liberal estimate of the at tendance nt yesterday's, meeting, repre sent themselves and two other voters apiece. If the representation from other centers Is as complete as from Lots Angeles, the convention will be "national" Indeed. The long agony is over. The county office holders slept peacefully last night, and will breathe more freely this morn ing. The large army of office hunters j will be dispersed, Which fact will clarify ! the atmosphere considerably In this Icampalgn. The decision is likely to j have a saddening effect upon the ut ! tendance at single standard meetings, at which the anxious tax-eaters havo made themselves conspicuous for the past few weeks. If the silver miner under the law of free coinage, finds that silver bullion 1 ls raised so that which ls now worth 50 cents will be worth 100 Cents, then there are 110 50-cent dollars, and if the other man Is correct and the law adds nothing to the value of the metal, and yon simply convert 50 cents' worth of silver into a 50-cent dollar, then the mine owner has not. made a cent.—W. .1. Bryan. A special correspondent of the Pall Mall Gazette was sent across the Atlan tic to make a thorough investigation and report of the Cripple Creek mines. This smart young man was satisfied thai, after spending live days there, he hud finished his job . Mr. Astor's journal will, no doubt, have some wonderful tut worthless tales. Hanna's shrewd determination to I keep McKinley oft the stump is being ' interpreted by the Republican press aa ! a proof of McKlnley's retiring und modest disposition. The same papers are adversely criticising Hryan's free speech to free people. What did they say of Blame's famous electioneering tour in isslV The campaign of education. Which With a patronizing air eastern single standard organs assured the world they would convert the west, has so far not risen above a campaign of fabrication and misrepresentation. THOUGHTS TO DIGEST A laboring man would infinitely pre fer to be set to work earning silver dol lars than to starve waiting for employ ment on a gold basis.—Chit ago Tribune, January !>, IS7S. The folly of advocating the single gold standard of money must be obvious to everyone not blind as a bat in daylight. —Chicago Tribune, January 5, IS7B. The purchasing power nf legal tender silver coin furnishes the only proper test. The values of gold or silver as bul lion are not pertinent to the issue, whether the two metals, as legal tender can be maintained.—Chicago Tribune, January 9, IS7S. In 1573-4. as It was two years and more later discovered, the coinage of tills sliver dollar was forbidden and sil ver dollars were demonetized by law. This act, which was done secretly an 1 stealthily, to the profound ignorance of those who voted for It. and of the president who approved it, had. without the knowledge of the country, removed one of the landmarks of the govern ! ment, and under cover of darkness abolished the constitutional dollas and I had arbitrarily, and to the immense In ! jury of the people, added heavily to j every form of Indebtedness, public and 1 private.—Chicago Tribune, February 23, i IS7S. If the government had been paying I gold interest, it had that right by origi- I nal agreement, and it may hereaft-r ' pay silver interest by the same righ*. The option is in the government, and , iit has never been surrendered, and never will be. How often must this be | i repeated before the goldltes will con- I j sent to accept the fact? We have had ! enough Shylock talk about "public credit," "good faith." "honor," "under j standings." expectations" and "suppo i sitlons." The surest way to kill "public ' credit, good faith and honor" is to I smash down the price of property, par alyze business, pauperize labor, bank ! rupt enterpi Ise and drive the people In , to poverty and despair, and that Is pre i cisely the rede the gold yelpers are play j ing.—Chicago Tribune, January 16, IS7S. Ar lixample to Be I : ollowrJ I Th" example set by Representative i Maguire and followed at once by Major I l'atton of the Sixtli congressional dis trict and Mai ion de Vrles of the Second district in placing themselves and their resignations in the hands of the confer ence committee on fusion is patriotic . ; and single-minded. Representative!; ; Maguire. for instance, might very well j tut back and say he- has nothing to gain j ■by fusion. His election is secure so long I :as his nam" remains on the ticket. If he I has any opposition in his district nobody has found It out. By this time most peo ple have forgotten the name of the man nominated against him and whether | there was in ir- than one of these.and if there are any survivors. Nevertheless Maguire feels that fusion is a condition , precedent to tin- election of a delegation I pledged against Mr. Huntington's fund ' ing bill, and in favor of Bryan and the . policy for which he stands. Therefore the Democratic nominee in the Fourth district has placed his resignation tin- j reservedly in th<- hands of the confer- | ence committee, and his example was 1 promptly followed by his brother nomi nees Mr. Patton and Mr. De Vrles. We have no doubt that the Populist | nominees for congress will be equally ready to place themselves in the hands of tin committee, Their party is fully i 1 represented in that body, and each side ; j will receive fair treatment.—San Fran- j cisco Examiner. _ Driving %way the Farmer Vote Major Mi Kinley is said to oppose the I policy of ridiculing the farmers of the country in order to force them to vote j the Republican ticket.

AT THE THEATERS LOS ANGELES THEATER.— All so- j ciety paid homage last night to an Ideal ' com puny of players who graced the boards In a most BtOVing presentment Of :i singularly unhealthy play, even in Ml era when the products of the drama- j tlst's pen are mostly wordy aoeentua tiona of morbid morals and the puerile phantasmagoria of perverted passions. ' The MasqUeradtM Is a well marked type Of tliis fashion of plays, made main ly t.> unvelL the littleness of men and women of the day. whose vires are not dignified by even the ragged force of brutality, it Is this sor! of play that Im pels one to long lor the spectacle of a oostermonger Jumping on his mother, and marring her with the sentimental grace of hot nailed brogana* If the pur pose of the playwright In evolving The Masqueraders Is to show how utterly aencmic and despicable men and women may appear he has most admirably sue- ■ reeded In his task of questionable ex ploitation. There is more absolute pess imism and moral nightmare paraded than ran ordinarily be crowed into most modern plays, That a woman may marry a man she does not love; that a j man may be a genteel blackguard, and that he may sink so; low as to stake his - wife and child on the hazard of the cards with the admitted lover of the woman, has the realistic force of Ignoble truth back of it all. It Is equally true that certain tribes of the Congo region are much concerned in the gastronomic da vices that enable them to convert their ageil parents into ragouts and roasts, but In good south. It Is a noble fashion i among men of healthy minds and bodies to pass lightly over these enormities, and no good reason can be advanced why men I and women should revel In the effluvium j of a Cloaca, when the rose gardens along ! the torturous path of life Invite us to . their fragrance and light. There Is no fine thaumaturgtc impulse back of the I realism that is an excuse for rottenness. Such are the mediums which a really j clever company of players are railed on ! to dignify with their noble art. Oer ; talnly these actors are worthy of higher lines of thought, of more gracious ex panses nf action. As Picciols bloomed In a prison, as Samuel Johnson threw the glamor of a great mind over the bleakness and gloom of the Hebrides, so did th.'se actors last night give expres sion most admirable to the tenets of their art. Viola Allen, always a woman, in whom is apparently cor.centered the i forensic impulses and the moving graces of plastic expression, made a marvel ous woman of Dulcie Larondle, giving to the character her own ethical charms, and proving to us again how consunu ate she is In her calling. Mr. William Faversham's David Remon <'u monstateh him to be a most adequate actor—V man who has drawn much earnest at* tention so early in his career, and more, who fully justifies that attention for his faculties are superbly poised and at tuned to the most forceful measures of sympathy. Mr. Robert Edeson as Sir Bryce Skene made him a man of pro found wickedness. In fact, Mr. Kdeson's work Is perhaps the most exacting in the play, and the full measure of suc cess he achieves demonstrates his per fect schooling always consistent and ever conscientious as to the making of a perfect picture. A bright gleam of whole-souled honesty, a heart of oak in a wedy land, is the character of Jimmy Stokes, as presented by Mr. Wil liam H. Crompton, "The Parson," as he was erstwhile called in olden days. Mr. Crompton makes the most of the char acter, but this was to be expected. No blesse oblige. Mr. Crompton. always a consummate and scholarly player. < ould not do otherwise. Mr. Dodson as Lush- Ington and Mr. Gottsehalk as Eddie i Remon were both thoroughly apace In j point of high excellence, and Mrs. ThomasWhlffln, always one Of the most delightful woman on the stage, fulfilled , i each and every exaction of the role of the match-making mother. Ida Con quest made a most sympathetic sister I to the heroine. Certainly such a coterie ! of sterling players Will receive enthus iastic greeting from our playgoers. IN SOCIETY i There was a merry gathering of young ' people at the home of Judge and Mrs. ; Sherman Page last night, when Miss ! Jessie Page entertained a number of ! her friends. A majority of the party had the additional pleasure of a straw ride from Alhambra, and when arriving at I the hospitable home of the hostess there ! vas a cordial welcome awaiting all. A progressive game of straws was played, ■■ for which two pretty prises were award* j ed. The fortunate lady won a silver- I mounted emery and the gentleman a I sterling silver pocket nail file. Dancing was one of the amusements provided, | and on the porch was a cosy corner, j where lounges and soft rugs made an mtractive resting plnce.
