•wer—Political News
The members of the committees ap
pointed by the Democratic county con
vention, the Populist county conven
tion, the Labor Congress and the Free
Silver Republicans held a Joint meet
ing yesterday afternoon at the rooms
of the Populist county central com
mittee, at the corner of New High and
Temple streets.
These committees were all delegated
by the bodies which they represented
to confer with each other as to a plan of
fusion on legislative, judicial and su
pervlsoral nominations, witli a view of
placing in the field at the forthcoming
election a union county ticket, which
would be supported by all of the organ
izations named. 1
There were present at the conference
Judge M. Stephens and W. R. Burke,
representing the Democrats. Mr. James,
the third Democratic conferee, was de
tained elsewhere by business and could
not attend the meeting. Mr. Schaffer
and Capt. F. B. Colver represented the
Labor Congress. Nathan Cole, jr., and
Sutherland Hutton stood for the Silver
Republicans. The Populists were rep
resented by Secretary J. B. Fulton and
two others.
The conference was convened prompt
ly at 3 p. tin., and lt was decided that an
executive session would be advisable,
and that at the proper time full and
complete Information would be given
the press as to what was done.
Messrs. Cole and Hutton, on behalf
of the Free Silver Republicans, thanked
the conferees for the consideration
shown them in inviting them to send
representatives to be present at the
consultation. They stated, however, that
the Free Silver Republicans were mov
ing and actin.s in this campaign from
purely conscientious motives and for
principle, and principle alone.
Thoy stated that the great body they
represented were not asking for offices
and desired none. They stood pre
pared, as honorable men, to do anything
and everything to advance the Interests
of free silver coinage, to elect William
J. Bryan to the presidency and to de
feat James McT>achlan for congress.
Further than this they, as a body, did
not care to go.
The remarks of the gentlemen were
met with applause, and tne Free Silver
Republican leaders were congratulated
upon the position they had taken with
regard to the white metal.
Tha meeting was harmonious ln every
respect, and the general idea of county
fusion was indorsed by a unanimous
vote.
The details will not be fully arranged
until a later meeting which Is to be
held. The Democrats and Populists will
make about an even division of the tick
et. The workingmen will also be rep
resented on the ticket by several nom
inees who have been actively Identified
with looal labor interests.
The final report of the committee,
when agreed upon, will be submitted
to the Democratic and. Populist county
conventions, both of wVch will con
vene on the 14th inst. If the report Is
approved as made, then the several con
ventions will proceed to fill out the tick
et according to the division made. The
nominations nf each convention will be
reported to the other for approval, and
when this final approval of the entire
ticket is obtained, then fusion is an
accomplished fact and the "Union
County Ticket" will be in the field, giv
ing voters an excellent opportunity to
destroy the Republican machine.
mayor radek's position
Will In the Future Del md Hlmielf From the
Attacks of a "Skunk"
Mayor Rader was yesterday very nu
merously congratulated. Citizens of all
shades of political opinion called upon
him and shook him warmly by the hand.
The cause of it all was the bold and out
spoken manner In which he had denied
the story put in circulation by the
Times to the effect that he had been
the machine candidate for the Republi
can nomination for state senator as
against Robert N. Bulla, and for the
fearful tongue lashing he had given
Clonel Hellison Glay Otis, whom he
had denounced as a "cur, a liar and a
blackguard."
"My language was very strong," said
Mayor Rader, in talking about the mat
ter yesterday, "but the occasion war
ranted it. This person has for months
been insulting and defaming me through
the columns of his paper. I had borne
It all until silence ceased to be a virtue.
In talking about such vermin as he is
It takes strong language to cover the
ground, and I was therefore fully justi
fied in using It.
"The matter will drop here, I hope. But
I do not propose to continue to be as
sailed and villifled, to have my integ
rity and my manhood brought into
question by this Otis person or anyone
else without defending myself. If a
skunk attacks me the use of the weapons
of that peculiar animal Is fully justified.
A skunk, under ordinary circumstan
ces, would be handled with gloves, but
If I am called on to do so I will handle
one without gloves."
JfcTER IS ALL RIGHT
He Will Hold lor the Full Term and So Will
Slierlfi John Burr
The intelligence received in this city
yesterday to the effect that the supreme
court had decided that William Jeter of
Santa Cruz was the legal and lawful
lieutenant-governor of California creat
ed great surprise, more particularly ln
Republican politlcalcircles.
Lleutenant-governor-elect S. O. Mil
lard died shortly after his election,
governor James H. Budd thereupon ap
pointed the Democratic nominee for that
office, William Jeter, to succeed him.
The Republican oontentton was that
Governor Budd's appointment did not
hold good only until the next general
election, and that he had no authority to
appoint Mr. Jeter for the full unexpired
term of Mr. Millard. The governor held
to the contrary, and all political parties
in this state nominated at their conven
tions a candidate for lieutenant-gov
ernor.
John C. Lynch, the Republican candi
date, carried the matter to the supreme
court for adjudication, and the highest
court ln the state has held that Mr. Je
ter's appointment from Governor Budd
Is for the full unexpired term of Mr. Mil
lard.
This decision not only settles the ques
tion directly Involved, but it also deter
mines whatever doubt existed as to
whether or not John Burr, the sheriff,
will hold his office for four years or not
under the appointment of the board of
supervisors. Mr. Burr will serve his full
term out. His friends were last evening
congratulating him, but the friends of
Mr. Lynch, the Republican nominee for
lieutenant-governor, who lives at Cuca
monga, San Bernardino county, did not
feel so happy.
AN OPEN LP I TER
An Old Missouri Republican Writes to Colonel
Helllson Olay Otis
The following open letter to Col. Helli
son Glay Otis is from an old-line Mis
souri Republican, N. C .Burch. The
gentleman has been honored by the
rank and file of his party as clerk of the
supreme court of Missouri, and comes
from that part of the country where
Republicans are very scarce at times,
but who, until the present campaign
opened, were very warm partisans. The
letter is an Interesting one and is well
worthy of pei-usal. An answer is
awaited:
Editor Times, Los Angeles, Cal.: It
ia useless attempting to disguise the
tact that a large number of Republi
cans are blmetalllsts, and that many of
tham will vote for the Bryan presiden
tial electors and the fret silver candi
dates for congress and the state legisla
tures as the best and surest means of
obtaining bimetallism at any time tn the
near future. They have made up their
minds tn this, and no amount of abus
ive cartooning or editorial lampooning
on your part will deter them from lt. 1
submit to you, as a patron of the Times,
that it is just as well to be fair and givs
us free and respectful discussion.
That we may see at a glance the real
difference ln the declaration of the sil
ver Republicans from that of the gold
Republicans on the question of coinage,
the two declarations are submitted in
parallel columns:
Gold Republican. Silver Republican.
"we are opposed' "The Republican
to the free coinage- 1 party favors the use
of sliver, except by; of both gold and sll-
International agree-! ver as equal standard
ment with the lead-money and pledges
lng commercial na-l Its power to secure
tlons of the world, I the free, unrestricted
which we pledge'a n d independent
ourselves to pro-coinage of gold and
mote; and.until suchlsllver at our mints at
agreement can belthe ratio of 16 parts
obtained, the exlst-l of silver to lof gold."
lng gold standard I
must be preserved."!
The sliver Republican declaration is
substantially the same as all former
Republican declarations on the sub
ject, particularly that of the national
Republican convention of 1892. Both
were written by Senator Henry M. Tell
er. The one quoted above was present
ed and supported by a minority of the
late St. Louis convention. It expressed
the convictions of the Republican party
in 1892, and it Is claimed that it ex
presses the convictions of the true Re
publicans of the party In 1896 It is cer
tain that the declaration quoted above as
that of the gold Republicans never ap
peared in a national Republican plat
form before, and I venture to say that
It would not appear there now were
James G. Blame alive. Indeeo, I will
venture to say further that lt would
not appear there now had the platform
of the St. Louis convention been dic
tated by William McKinley. That dec
laration was put there at the dictation
of "Me, Too," T. Piatt, Mr. Blame's an
cient enemy, and his partisan or fac
tional adherents.
Every true friend of the Republican
party holds ln reverent memory the
prophetic utterances of James G. Blame
in the United States senate in 1878:
"I believe the struggles now going
on in this country, and In other coun
tries, for the single gold standard would,
1£ successful, produce widespread dis
aster in and throughout the commer
cial world. • • • * If, therefore,
silver has been demonetized, 1 am in
favor of remone-tlzlng it. If its coinage
has been prohibited, I am in favor of
ordering it to be resumed. If it has been
restricted, I am In favor of having it
enlarged."
When? Not when England agrees to
it, but now, at the time of hts speaking.
Not even when Wall street agrees to lt,
but at that very time.
Now there are a great many eminent
bimetalllsts in England. Suppose the
question was to be submitted to the pop
ular vote of Englishmen. Do you be
lieve lt would be submitted upon a dec
laration ln its favor if other nations
agree to it? Or, ln its favor, not inde
pendent of any other nation on earth?
Rt. Hon. A. J. Balfour gives us your an
swer. In his speech in the London bi
metallic conference in May, 1894, he
said:
' Now, having disposed of my two first
questions (in the affirmative), the pos
sibility and morality of adopting the
double system, there remains only the
third question, whether it is expedient
to do so; and on this I may, perhaps,
be allowed to say, by way of preface,
that I think it will not only be inexpedi
ent, but also impossible to do so unless
the government of the day which sets
to work to deal with this great problem
has behind it the balance of opinion
in the greatest financial city of the
world, viz.: London."
In other words, until Lombard street,
London, is converted to the double sys
tem it will not only be Inexpedient but
impossible. This Is precisely the posi
tion of the Republican party in its St.
Louis platform. Its possibility is all
right, and Its morality is all right, but
until a majority of the greatest aggre
gation of money loaners in all the
world agree to lt lt Is Inexpedient. For
cold-blooded, merciless brutality, by the
side of this the example of the Shylock
of Shakespeare is that of a saint.
Now, Mr. Editor, there is scarcely an
Issue of the Times in which your silver
Republican friends are not charged
with dishonesty and repudiation.
Really, what Is the difference between
us? If we are favoring dishonesty and
repudiation, are not you doing the same
thing? The only difference being that
you want company in your crime and
we don't.
You say that we want to pay a dol
lar of indebtedness with a 80-cent piece.
Now, don't you want to do the same
thing as soon as Lombard street, Lon
don, will let you?
In conclusion, are you not willing to
admit that the truth of this charge is
exactly theyreverse of your statement of
lt, namely, that we don't want to be
compelled to pay 60 cents of indebted
ness with a dollar piece? Very respect
fully, N. C. BURCH.
Tropico, Cal., Sept. 2, 1896.
DEPARTMENT SHOUT
Plenty af Qoldbug Literature at Washington
but Everything else Is Out
The departments at Washington are
not overly anxious to give out any sta
tistical Information at this Juncture that
would tend to have any bearing of a fa
vorable oharaoter upon the silver ques
tion. As Illustrating this fact it is only
necessary to print the letter given be
low.
Sometime ago, J. B, Pulton, as secre
tary of the Populist central committee,
wrote to the treasury department for
LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 4, 1889,
the statistical abstract of 1895, of which
there are always numerous copies cir
culated throughout the country by the
government to the people. Quite an In
terval of time elapsed and Mr. Fulton
received the following:
TREASURY DEPARTMENT,
Bureau of Statistics.
Sir: I acknowledge the receipt of your
request for a copy of the statistical ab
stract for 1895. The edition given to this
bureau was so small that it has been en
tirely exhausted. You may obtain a
copy of the abstract by remitting, by
postal money order only, twenty-five
(25) cents to the superintendent of docu
ments, government printing office,
Washington, D. C, Respectfully yours,
WORTHINOTON C. FORD,
Chief of Bureau.
There are more copies left, it seems,
but they can only be obtained for coin.
The supply of gold standard literature
the treasury officials are circulating
though is Inexhaustible.
BUSINESS MEN
They Are Appsaled to Form a Sound Money
League
This evening there will be a meeting of
some of the advocates of the gold stand
ard at the rooms of the McKinley club,
at the corner of First street and Broad
way. The object of the meeting is to dis
cuss the financial issue and to perfect the
organization of what will be termed
"The Business Men's Sound Money
League."
Yesterday the following circular was
distributed throughout the business por
tion of the city in stores and offices:
BUSINESS MEN'S SOUND MONEY
LEAGUE.
Meeting for preliminary organization
at old California club rooms, First and

Every business man and voter who fav

CAMPAIGN LIE NAILED
Mr. Debs Corrects a Misstatement ol an After
noon Pooer
On the 19th of August the Evening Ex
press, under the caption "Debs Indorses
McKinley," printed a half column edi
torial ln which the president of the Rail
way union was represented as favoring
the Republican nominee for the presi
dency. In the course of the article an
extract from a letter from Mr. Debs to
a friend in Nevada is also quoted, and on
which the editorial was based. This edi
torial naturally caused much comment
among railroad men and workingmen
generally, as it was known that the sen
timents expressed were directly opposed
to Mr. Debs' position. Mr. S. E. Fulton
promptly wrote to Mr. Debs, enclosing
the article from the Express, and asking
for an expression of his views. The fol
lowing reply has been received over the
A. R. U. president's signature, which ef
fectually settles the whole matter:
"I have your esteemed favor of the
24th, and have noted contents carefully,
including the clipping from the Express,
which is herewith returned, ln the in
terview upon which the editorial Is based
I was grossly misquoted. I never made
the statement credited to me at all. I
made the statement that 'I would rather
see McKinley elected than to have an
other Democratic administration such as
that of Grover Cleveland.' The caption
of the Express editorial states an un
truth. I have not indorsed McKinley, for
I have not lost my senses. I am op
posed to him with all the vigor at my
command. In this fight lam for Bryan,
for he Is the true representative of the
people. All the trusts, syndicates, mo
nopolies and gambling combines ln the
country are arrayed against him, and
seeking to howl him down as an anarch
ist, but the common people in every part
of the country are rallying to his stand
ard, and unless all the s(gns are mislead
ing a tidal wave of popular approval will
sweep him into the presidential chair.
You are at liberty to make such use of
this letter as you see fit. • • • • • •
Yours faithfully,

VERY ENTHUSIASTIC
The Eighth Ward Brvan Club Addressed by
Judge Utley and others
The largest gathering of ladies and
gentlemen witnessed in the Eighth ward

J. D. Steele rendered a song entitled
Silver, which was well received and
heartily encored.
President A. J. Dahl then urged all to
pay close attention to the address to be
delivered by Judge A. J. Utley.
Judge Utley spoke for an hour and a
half and ln a clear and logical discourse
replete with facts and figures in support
of the cause of free and unlimited coin
age of silver. Despite the fact that
many were obliged to stand up on ac
count of the Immense crowd, enthusi
asm never for an Instant waned. All
were satisfied that abet tor treat than the
judge gave them could not be wished for.
A number of colored gentlemen who
had heretofore been pronounced gold
men, declared that the Judge had fully
convinced them, that it was to their In
terest to stand for free and unlimited
coinage, and are now going to form a
Bryan silver club to be composed of col
ored men.
The club, at the conclusion of the
judge's address, accorded him three
rousing cheers.
S. A. Waldron made some telling re
marks that were well received.
S. E. Fulton made a statement con
cerning the misrepresentations of news
papers ln quoting E. V. Debs.
Twenty-five new members signed the
roll of membership during the meeting.
Secretary Apffel requested that an ex
ecutive session of the club be held at the
conclusion of the public meeting.
Free Silver Republicans

ing up their good work. Forty-six names
.were added to the rolls at the headquar

Inaugurated. It Is now confidently pre
dicted that the three thousand mark will
be passed before the first of October.
To Disseminata Sliver Literature
E. A. Relmann, agent of the Silver
Knight, Downey, Cal., wants the secre
taries of the Bryan Silver clubs in Los
Angeles and Orange counties to send

on them.
Bryan Silver Club
The regular weekly meeting of the
Bryan Silver club takes place this even

street between Third and Fourth streets,
at 8 oclock, sharp.

can Clubs Grows Dally
There were a large number of callers
yesterday at the headquarters of the
Free Silver Republican club of Los An
geles county, at 318 West Second street.
Something over seventy-five former act
ive Republicans called and signed the
rolls.
It was originally thought that It would
hardly be possible to get the club mem
bership above 3000, but the officers of the
organization are now of the opinion that
it will easily reach 5000 before election
day.
"The gentlemen who are dally calling
and signing the roll are among the best
workers we have had ln the Republican
ranks," said Secretary F. J. Cooper yes
terday. "They are all solid, substantial
citizens, and most of them taxpayers. Of

up and we did not expect that they
would.

AT THE THEATERS
LOS ANGELES THEATER—Another
delighted audience listened to the lark
like singing of Chauncey Olcott at this
house last night as the dashing hero
in The Minstrel of Clare. The play is
laid ln the County Clare and the story
Is a beautiful picture of life among the
small farmers, with a breezy vein of rich
Celtic humor, and a delicately told love
story woven through the warp and
woof of vllllanly and oppression. Na
turally however strong the play and the
company presenting it, all was overshad
owed by the superb singing of Mr. Ol
cott. Among the ballads.The Minstrel
Boy and the Young Rose, two sterling
favorites with the good old-fashioned
folk who love the songs of old with
their beautiful melodies and honest
sentiment, were sung by Mr. Olcott with
wonderful sweetness and power and
made the audience wild with enthus
iasm. In fact, It has been a long time
since any actor has raised such a mead
of commendation here as has been in
spired by Mr. Olcott's sterling histri
onic work and fits superb signing.
The support was excellent. Mr.

BURBANK THEATER.—M» Leon
ard Grover's comedy. My Son-in-Law,
received Its first performance hi this city
last evening at the Burbank. The situ
ation may be summed up by saying it
made a most decided hit. The comedy
is breezy and full of life. The situations
are among the most comical one ever
saw. The story Is of a young man,
Cholmondelly Stuart, who, tiring of a
life of flirtatlren, resolves to marry and
become respectable. After he has made
his choice, he, like one of the Goulds,
employs a private detective agency to
look up the antecedents of the young
lady's parents. The prospective moth
er-in-law praises him for his discre
tion and resolveß, in her turn, to Inves
tigate the moral chaacter of the young
man. To this emd she visits various
places, and the chase gets closer until
all parties meet at Coney island, where
the young man is giving a dinner to
some young ladies. Here the fun be
comes fast and furious. The act received
a double curtain call.
Mr. Grover, sr., the author of the com
edy, received am ovation on his ap
pearance as Jean Blsbon. Grover, Jr.,
gave a capital performance of Uppers.
Grade Plalsted, ris Sara Turnheart, and
May Noble, as Juaquina Blsbon, pretty
fairly shared the honors, while Fanny
Young's Mrs. Uppers was a rich treat.
Nellie Young looked pretty and acted
Flora Crimp charmingly. The cast is
especially full of female characters, not
fewer than eight important roles. AH
were admirably sustained and the dress
ing was In exquisite taste. My Son-ln-
Law tonight and the remainder of this
week.
