SEPTEMBER 0, 1806 \ National Democratic Ticket For President. WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN Of Nebraska. For Vice-President, ARTHUR SEWALIa Of Maine. CONGRESSIONAL map Member of Congress. Sixth District. C. A. BARLOW. TO THE TRAVELING PUBLIC The Herald has received reliable in formation that certain transportation lines are using grossly unfair and pre scriptive methods to suppress its sale through newsboys and news agents. The reason obviously Is that the monop olies are so strongly In favor of gold and McKinley that they discountenance the sale of literature pertaining to Bryan or silver sold on their trains. Any one who is unable to procure the Herald under such circumstances will confer a special favor by notifying the publishers, either In person or by letter, as it is proposed to resent any unfair discrimination by all proper and legal process possible. Such methods are but another indica tion of the tearfulness with which the big monopolies and giant trusts regard the irrepressible tide in favor of the people's champion and the remonetiza tion of silver. Some of the railroad companies have forgotten that they are the well paid servants of the public. The news agent on a car is presumably for the convenience of the traveling" public, and it is a flagrant offense to the public that they cannot procure such literature or journals as they desire. The btbgraphies and speeches of Bryan and Sewall, published in book form, have been studiously boycotted on cer tain railways. It certainly is not prob able that the traveling public In search of such will be satisfied with anything else, and a railroad company in counte nancing such practices only demeans Itself in the public eye. Today California celebrates her fifty slxth birthday. Arkansas supplies another formidable answer to Vermont. Mr. Bryan Is home again, and deserves a rest after his exhaustive campaign of conversion in the east. The Republican cartoonists seem to beh ard pressed for subjects of attack. Harjer's Weekly, a journal of civiliza tion, apparently thinks It was very un patriotic of Mr. Bryan to be lying In his cradle in 1861 while Mr. McKinley shoul dered a musket and went to the war. The Commercial and Financial Chron icle's statement of the gross earnings of the 233 principal railroads of the country shows an Increase of 5.01 per cent for the lirst half of 1896, compared with the cor responding period of 1895. Nothing could be more significant than this fact. The crusade against the obnoxious theater hat is gaining ground. Louisiana has followed the example of Ohio and legislated against the obstruction and Irritant. The theater hat bill went Into effect at New Orleans a week ago and It Is good to know that Its terms were generally and cheerfully complied with. Site manager and assistant stood at the entrance of the theater and every time > woman presented herself with a bat which came within the provisions of the statute she was asked to remove It and was given a check. There were no pro tests, and every person who paid for a seat enjoyed privilege of seeing the stage and the pt* formance. IMMIGRATION AND LAND The report of the Immigration com mission for 1895 contains some very sug gestive facts which everybody would do well to read and consider carefully. To the unreflecting mind a perusal of the document might lead to the conclu s!on that there are too many people In the world; that the Malthusian theory has a foundation of logic and fact. But on the other hand, we are constantly confronted with announcements from various sources and sections that "we have mineral lands to develop; we have timber lands to be worked; we have agricultural lands awaiting de velopment," etc., etc. In every unsettled or sparsely settled region there is plenty of land, of some kind, awaiting the ap plication of labor and capital to develop its hidden resources. Labor without capital, however.is an unwelcome guest. Wherever there Is unused land that Is worth using there are forestallers, who have already appropriated choice por tions of nature's storehouse and are holding it out of use for large profits on the sale of It to such persons as will purchase, or else rent It on shares —the owners receiving the lion's share every time. There is no section of unused land where the man with money would not be welcomed. There is no section where the man without money would be need ed unless as a wage slave or a helpless tenant. Men who can and will buy land are wanted everywhere, but men who can only work land are a. drug In the market, i The population of the United States does I not exceed 70.000.000. California alone I could sustain that number of people un der just laws and free social conditions. Five billions of people could live com fortably within the area of the United States. Why, then, should immigration be a bugbear before our eyes? Only a small fraction of the earth's surface within this area has as yet been scratch ed. Only a very small percentage of that which is Improved at all Is Improved to the extent of Its capacity or site value With such a vast domain and Inexhaus tible resources there Is room enough in the United States for hundreds where there are tens, thousands where there are hundreds, and millions where there are thousands. Evidently there Is an overproduction of landlordism in this country. That Is why— "Millions of hands want acres, And millions of acres want hands." The toll-taker stands between land and labor, the two factors In wealth production, ana demands tribute from labor to the extent of all it can earn above a hare living. The report under consideration con tains two very important and significant statements, which are herewith quoted: "The Immigrant represents, the mo ment he lands, a physical power and en ergy which It would have cost this coun try years of expenditure to produce. He is dropped upon our shores the ready made man, eager to give us the benefit of his developed muscle and physical en ergy. The nation that has not Induce ments enough to keep such a man at home is poor Indeed, and our own coun try Is made the richer by his presence." And again: "The solution of the vex atious immigration problem Is to be found not so much In a restriction of Immigration lis in a wise distribution of it." REMARKABLE CONCLUSIONS The Evening Express informed its readers last night on its first page that "Democracy Is Dead" since "The Peo ple's Party Issues a Manifesto Today." On Its second page the news from Ar kansas tells us: The campaign was fought on financial lines, the Democrats standing for free sljver and the Republicans for the gold standard. This double the ma jority the Democrats received at the elections two and four years ago. Editorially the Express assures us "that there Is one significant fact in all these recent Southern elections and that is that the Populistlc party Is being wiped out. That shows that several of the Southern states may be expected to give their votes to Palmer, which would make McKinley's election doubly sure." The meaning and the logical sequence of this wisdom is, it must be confessed, a trifle obscure. However, the Express, like the corpse, must feel easier now, since in one day It announces the decease of the Democ racy and also that the Populistlc party Is being wiped out. A very rapid and convenient disposition of the enemy, in deed, but it would be a little more con clusive if not more satisfactory to the Express itself, had there been any foundation in fact, for either of its erratic deductions. The true Democracy Is very much alive, and with the aid of the People's party, will send Mr. Bryan to the White House by a magnifi cent majority. THE POSITION OF SILVER Several correspondents have addressed The Herald In reference to the question whether silver dollars and silver certi ficates are redeemable In gold or not. The answer of Secretary Carlisle, as given below Is conclusive enough, but the campaign of education, as compre hended by the majority of the Republi can organs, consists In either confound ing or deliberately misleading the pub lic. The Lincoln Journal the other day said: These silver certificates are now re deemable in gold at the sub-treasuries. As any man can take his silver dollars and exchange them for sliver certificates at will and then exchange 'his certifi cates for gold, the statement of Mr. Bryan In his New York acceptance that It is the legal tender character of the silver dollar that keeps it at par with gold and nothing else, is absurdly child ish. He denies that the government pays out gold for silver dollars. He would, therefore. Imply that if free coinage Is adopted -and as an inevitable conse quence the government must cease from redeeming its paper issues in gold coin on demand, yet the "legal tender" char acter of the free coinage dollar would be kept at par with gold. Those who con tend that Mr. Bryan Is an honest man and believes what he says In public must, therefore, set him down as an Imbecile. The following letter addressed to Sen ator Foulkner explains Itself: My Dear Sir:—So far as I have been able to ascertain, neither the treasury department nor any sub-treasury has ever been called upon to redeem stiver dollars In gold, and no such dollars have LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MOBNUTGr, SEPTEMBER 9, 1899* been. In fact, redeemed In gold. At the sub-treasury In San Francisco It often happens that sliver dollars and gold is paid out in exchange for sliver dollars in small amounts, but this simply occurs In the ordinary transactions of the busi ness at that place and for the purpose of accommodating the public with money of small denominations when needed, and for securing for the sub treasury money of small denominations when needed. It is not in any sense of the term a redemption of silver dollars in gold, or of the gold in silver. The re sult of these transactions at the sub treasury Is that the government gains much more gold than it loses. Very truly yours, J. G. CARLISLE. Washington. D. C Aug. L' 6, 1896. In his statement of June 1. 1896. Sec retary Carlisle said: "NEITHER SIL VER CERTIFICATES NOR SILVER DOLLARS ARE REDEEMABLE IN GOLD." On page 12 of the same circu lar, speaking of "redemption," the sec retary says: "Gold and silver dollars be ing standard coins of the I'nited States, are not REDEEMABLE." The doom of Turkey seems sealed, although It may be hazardous to count upon the action of the European powers until they have definitely acted. The Armenian atrocities should long ago have terminated the present Turkish dynasty, but the vacillation and jeal ousy of the powers sanctioned the con tinuation of both. Today Crete is in arms, Macedonia Is In a state of revolt, there is trouble on the Bulgarian front ier, and an explosion in Constantinople may be looked for any moment. The Pasadena Star Is surprised at the truthful headlines that characterized The Herald's account of the Vermont election. It is the habit of every honest newspaper to present its news with headlines indicative of the matter that follows. The Los Angeles Times is a flagrant offender in the opposite direc tion and perpetually distorts its news by editorial comment dished upi in vul gar slang, frequently entirely mislead ing and exasperating the reader. Our Hoodoo contemporary throws out distress signals. A discerning public readily discovers them in its columns of "offal" vituperation Indicative of the last stages of senile debility. Converging clouds are gathering over the devoted bastlle at the corner of First and Broad way.and the vicious old woman looksout from the eyrie with lack-lustre eyes, exclaiming with Tennyson's demented lady of Shalott: "The curse has come upon me." Some mathematician has figured out that the United States cruiser Brooklyn gets more speed out of a ton of coal than any other vessel atloat. When she de veloped such phenomenal power In her trial the other day her builders earned a premium of $300,000, besides the satisfac tion of fulfilling all their pledges. As a matter of fact, there is nothing the matter with Hanna. "He's all right!"— Times Editorial. Even the Times has to approve of Mark's sagacity in publicly repudiating its support and that of its pestiferous editor, the Otis person. An Expensive Dollar Men who work for wages should re member that money not only buys things, but that it has to be bought. A dollar is bought by a workingman with a certain amount of work. If dol lars are few and workingmen plenty he will have to pay pretty dear in effort for his coin. Perhaps he will not even get a chance to buy it at all, either be cause there are not enough dollars to go round or because he cannot or will not pay the price. In such event the fact that the dollar he doesn't get Is one of great value neither interests nor profits him. The shopkeeper buys his dollars with goods. Ninety-nine out of every hun dred of his customers, if he run a city store, work for wages, and if the deaf ness of the dollar destroy their power of purchasing he will get fewer dollars to pay clerk* and some must be dis charged, fewer dollars with which to buy goods and factories will be closed. Every class of labor thus suffers by a dear dollar. Does the banker, the money lender, the man whose investments bringing in interest outweigh all his other sources of Income suffer from a dear dollar? In no way. He does not buy dollars with work. With goo*-', with produce. He lends a dollar, gets back one which, under existing conditions, is sure to be more valuable than the one he lent, and moreover receives Interest In money of high purchasing power. His apparent Interest lies wholly on the side of a dol lar which is dear today and dearer to morrow. We say his apparent interest because in fact the present system per sisted In will be harmful to the bank ing classes as to others. The goose that lays the golden egg may be slaughetered. All securities are founded on the pros perity of the nation, and a policy which compels the distress of the people will compel the depreciation of the banker's securities. The common people, however, will get reer the core of this currency question if they remember that to get a dollar they must buy it with labor If working men, with wheat and corn If farmers. THE POLITE WORLD One of the handsomest brides of the sea son was Miss Isabel Weinheimer. who was united In marriage yesterday at high noon to Mr. Arthur Paul Chlpron at Immanuel Presbyterian church. Rbv. Chichester officiated. The platform was elaborately decorated with potted plants and ferns and white blossoms. The same effect of green was carried up over the organ loft, smllax being used in profusion. The ar .tistlc arrangements were in charge of Miss McCarthy. Miss Elizabeth Kimball, in a gown of white organdie over silk, and car rying a huge cluster of pink carnations, acted as maid of honor and preceded the bride to the altar, where the groom and best man, Mr. Otto L. Wuhker, were In waiting. The bride entered on the arm of her cousin, Mr. J. Otto Koepfli, who gave her away. The bride Is a toll and stately brunette and looked extremely lovely In her wed ding gown of heavy cream satin. The skirt was en traine. On the bodice was an exquisite bertha of point lace, overlaid with pearl trimming. The long sleeves were met by gloves, and in her hand she car ried white carnations and ferns. A tulle veil gracefully caught to the coiffure with orange blossoms fell to the hem of the skirt. Miss Mary O'Donohuc presided at the organ and rendered the Lohengrin wedding march as trie bridal party entered the church. Call Me Thine Own was played during- the ceremony, and Mendelssohn's wedding march going out. The young couple left immediately for an extended trip through the northern part of the state, THE PRESIDENT OF THE MEXICAN REPUBLIC SAYS SO, TOO PRESIDENT DIAZ of the Mexican republic EFFECTUALLY EXPLODES the goldbugs' favorite theory that "a Mexican dollar when paid to a Mexican laborer Is worth but 50 per cent of a gold dollar." President Diaz in his letter to the San Francisco Examiner, among ether things said: "The fact that our SILVER DOL- LAR Is quoted at but HALF ot Its value In GOLD COUNTRIES has NO EFFECT on its value here. "The Mexican dollar Is WORTH AS MUCH and BUYS AS MUCH of the NECESSITIES of life in Mexico today as IT EVER DID." and after October 15th will be at home on Tuesdays at 812 South Pearl street. The bride's going away gown was a green tailor made Cheviot trimmed In braid. A becom ing green hat with brown wings completed the modish toilet. P. E. O. Society Mrs. Charles E.

Ryan.Wilson Wedding Miss Anna Ryan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Ryan, was married yesterday afternoon at 2 ocloek to Mr. Elmer Wilson The ceremony was performed in the par lors of the First Baptist church by Rev. J. C. Garnett. The parlor was handsomely and artistically decorated with a profusion of potted plants and ferns. Theonly flowers used was a large bell of lillles and Jasmine, held by ropes of smllax reaching from the window to the pillars. The latter were wreathed in smllax, the whole producing a most pleasing effect. The bride was charming In a gown of white moonshine de sole over satin. The full bodice was con- Herd at the waist by broad satin ribbons, the ends falling to the edge of the skir*. A crush collar finished the neck, and from the puffs on the shoulders the sleeves ter minated at the hand. A cluster of white carnations and ferns completed the toilet. The maid of honor was the bride's sister. Miss Ida Rvnn. who wore a pretty attire of pale hlue swlss with ribbon trimmings. She carried a cluster of yellow roses. Mr A. J.

The meeting was addressed by several well-known local orators and reports as to the progress of the silver campaign In the east, all of which went toshowthat the champion of the people, William J. Bryan, was on top. When President Lamme called the meeting to order last evening there were at least 400 Republicans in the hall. The hall was packed to the doors and many were unable to gain admittance. NO COUNTY FUSION.

The report was read by Sutherland Hutton and while he was doing so he was several times Interrupted by outbursts of applause. BARLOW ENDORSED Whereas. The Democratic and Popu list parties have nominated the Hon. C. A. Barlow of San Louis Obispo for congress from this district; and Whereas, The said Barlow Is a firm and steadfast friend of bimetallism, and pledges himself to support any and all measures looking to the free and unlim ited coinage of silver at the legal ratio of 18 to 1; and Whereas, The formation of this club had for its object the election to office of president, vice-president, congress men and members of our legislature favorable to the free and unlimited coin age of silver and gold; therefore be it Resolved, That we, the Silver Repub lican club of the county of Los Angeles, hereby endorse and approve the nomi nation of the said C. A. Barlow and pledge to him our loyal and united sup port. Three rousing cheers were given Charles A. Barlow, Henry T. Hazard proposing them. The resolutions were then adopted amid great applause and by a unani mous vote. On motion the secretary was instructed to Invite Mr. Barlow to meet with It at an early clay as its guest. THK SPEECHMAKERS N. C. Bereh of Tropico, a Republican since 1856. made a few remarks In which he pledged himself to support the cause of silver In every way that he could. H. E. Miller said that In 1864 the precinct in which he lived In Wayne county, Ind., cast 400 votes for Abraham Lincoln and not one for MeClel lan. Ordinarily the precinct had 70 Dem ocratic votes, but this year he was ad vised that the precinct would give Bryan 110 votes. This. Mr. Miller said, meant a change of forty votes in the precinct, a strongly Republican on „, allc i it was a sure indication that Bryan would carry Indiana. Mr. Miller made Some very humorous remarks, which created much laughter. Rev. George E. Dye also delivered a few remarks on the subject of the hour. Rev. Dye reannounced his allegiance to Bryan, declared himself to be a strong Barlow man and was loudly applauded. S. E. Fulton, a member of the board of education, gave Mr. MoLaohlan a turn ing over that apparently delighted the Republicans present, although be said he spoke as a Populist. Col. I. E. Messmore read a letter he bad received from a Republican on the supreme bench of Nebraska, who. In re ferring to William J. Bryanrsald: " Tha Beat li the Che«p-al " BOSTON GOODS STORE J. W.

This created great enthusiasm and pleased every one In the hall. Three cheers for Itryan were given before the Colonel closed. Some one asked the colonel If he was an anarchist. "Yes." he replied, "according to the Times I am an anarchist because I am In favor of restoring to the people the power stolen from them to 1873. lam in favor of an Income tax and I am an anarchist.

A PHOTO TWELVE FEET LONO The Entire Police Department Lined Up on Dress Parata For a month or more past the officers of the police department have been go ing in squads to the photographer's to face the camera, and the entire regular force, excepting the police detectives, has been "taken." As a result, there Is now completed one of the most unique panoramic photos yet made and prob ably the largest single piece of work yet attempted in the United States. On a single sheet of paper, making a photo graph twelve feet long and a foot wide the seventy-eight men composing the "finest" appear in full dress uniform lined up in dress parade. On the left are the four mounted offi cers, th/en Chief Glass and Capt. Rob erts afoot. The huge form of Sergeant Jerirles heads the police rifle squad, who stand next in line, twenty-four in num ber. Then, almost In the center of the long picture, the American flag held in the hands of Olllcer Hill, one of the tallest and largest men on the force. Sergeant Gus Smith with a squad of eleven men comes next, followed by Clerk Hentsley and Jailers Flammer and Richardson. Next In line Is Serg eant Morton with eleven men and Bail iff Appel, Secretary Cottle and Clerk Grldley on their left. Sergeant McKeag, commanding twelve patrolmen, Hanked by Patrol Drivers Cox and Stives and Clerk Bean form the end o£ the line and the photograph. The picture Is mounted on a stretcher of canvas and presents the exact front of the entire line as it would appear to an observer standing facing them. The figures are about live Inches in height and all being taken at the same exact distance and focus are relatively cor rect in relation to size as In life. As stated, there has nothing ever before been attempted of this size in a slngie photograph and the picture, artistically and otherwise, Is a distinct success. Some twenty or more negatives were used In printing it. The horsemen, the chief, captain and color-bearer and a few others were taken singly on separ ate plates, the rest In squades of four or five. To print the several figures on the single strip of paper, align them per fectly and produce a result so artist i-: required the utmost nicety and care In manipulation. A special toning bath some thirteen feet long had to be built to accommodate the print, as It would be impossible to put It through the vari ous washes in sections and secure a perfectly even result. The finished work Is now ready for exhibition and will probably be on view today In the window of Jacohy Brothers' store on Spring street. The artist who has so successfully met and conquered the difficulties presented hy this undertak ing is Mr. Putnam of the Temple block. rierriage Licenses _ The following licenses were Issued yesterday from the office of the county clerk: Ben Carlson, a native of Sweden, aged 35 years, and Lena Johnson, a native of Sweden, aged 30 years, both bsing resi dents of this city.

' HE PASSED A BOGUS CHECK But Claims It Was Given to Him by a Alan ol His Same Name Hesry Haydea Lacked Up on a Charge of Per. gery—Negotiated a Check lor $lg signed by French & Reed On a charge of forgery Henry Hay den, a young man who claims to be a laborer, was arrested yesterday morn ing by Detective Steele and 1b now be hind the bars of the city Jail. His alleged crime consisted in the passing of a check on the Los Angeles National bank for $13, purporting to have been signed by the contracting firm of French & Reed, upon a saloonkeeper named Henry Pfirrmann, whose place of busi ness is at 200 East First street. On Monday night Hayden went into Pflrrmanp's saloon and requested Peter Pflrrmanl, a brother of the proprietor, who was behind the bar, to let him have the money on the check which was made payable to H. Hoyden. As it had been customary to cash checks from the firm for employes, Pfirrmann said he would do so, but could not give all the cash at once. He accordingly gave Hayden 85 and the latter Indorsed the check on the bar In the presence of several witnesses, signing his name as H. Hayden. No one appeared to notice the discrepancy be tween the name of the payee of the In strument and the one given by Hayden. He got his $5, however, and was told to come in the morning for the balance. He told Pfirrmann that he had been working for French & Reed up at Bur bank and that he was given the check as his pay. Tuesday morning bright and early j Hayden was around for the balance, i but was only given $1 and told to wait a few hours for the remainder.When the ! bank opened Pfirrmann took the check iup there and happened to meet Mr. ! French in the place. When the contrac | tor saw the paper he at onoe pronounced It a clumsy forgery, and said that no j man named Hayden had been or was : working for film or his partner. Word j was Immediately sent to the police sta tion and Detective Steele went to the i saloon and waited for his man to turn up. He did so and was promptly ar- I rested. i In explanation of how he came into I possession of the check Hayden said i that it had been given to him to cash Iby another man whose name was the | same as his, to whom the check was i issued. He protested that the $5 he had ! received he had turned over to this ! other party, his double, and Intended to Ido the same wj,th the balance. His story i sounded a trine off color to the officer j who brougfit him in and placed him in \ a cell. A complaint was filed In Justice I Morrison's court In the afternoon and j Hayden will probably be arraigned some time today.
