UNION FUSION CANDIDATES GEORGE H. SMITH. Candidate for Superior Court Judge. To recognise the fitness of Col. George H. Smith for the office of superior judge needs but td know him. Skilled in the law, famed as a deep student, possessing the presence and experience with the world which add so much to the equip •ment-of a Judge, he is all that could be desired. On the occasion of Col. Smith's winning a *500 prize offered by the Amer ican Philosophical society for the best work on government, an essay entitled The Theory of the State, the San Fran cisco Chronicle of February 9, this year, printed a pleasing sketch of him and his work, and from that some excerpts are here given, with a few corrections and addenda: George H. Smith was born in Phila delphia February 2, 1834, of parentage, and was raised ln Virginia, where he remained until after the war. He entered the confederate army with the rank of lieutenant, but was after ward made captain, and in June, 1862, was elected colonel of the Twenty-fifth Virginia regiment infantry, and in Jan- Mary, 1863, was transferred to the Slxty aecond regiment Virginia mounted In fantry. Col. Smith has always said that it seemed to him that he was the senior ] colonel of the army, as he never found one after thfe war whose commission an tedated his own. He commanded Imboden's brigade. After the war he went to Mexico, where he passed two years near San Bias as a cotton planter. He removed to San Francisco some time in 1868, and came to Loa Angeles in 1869, where he has resid ed ever since. For many years he was a member of the law firm of'Glassell, Chapman & Smith, which subsequently became Glassell, Smith & Smith, and A. R. SPRAGUE. Candidate for Assemblyman of the Seventieth District. A. R. Sprague, candidate for assem bly from the Seventieth district, is a na tive of Wisconsin. He graduated in the classical course of Beloit college in 1876, having worked his way to an education. He took the freshman prize for decla mation and sophomore prize for debate. In his Junior year he represented his college in the state oratorical contest, where he was ranked by the committee as tied for first place. In his senior year he took the prize for the best English essay. After graduation he taught the Ev ansville high school for three years, the Black River Falls high school Tor two years, when he was elected principal of the Racine high school. He remained there eight years, after which he was called to the chair of history and politi cal economy in the Milwaukee high school. For twelve years he was A THREAD IN THE PAPER AND MAGAZINE WRAPPER. A satisfactory arrangement in paper wrappers for books and magazines sent through the mails, and one which seems to be new, is that of a thread In the wrapper. It is, of course, black linen, and is firmly pressed into the paper. It Is on the inside of the paper when* the package is wrapped, running length wise of It. One end extends beyond the edge of the paper, and with a gentle pull on this the wrapper is opened the full length, with no danger to the paper or magazine within, as there often is in cutting or opening with the fingers.— New York Times. PAINTED GLASS PANELS Decorative artists are Interested In the description of a novel process of painting recently brought to "notice by a Swedish genius, Mr. Owen of Gothenberg—a process wkleh. it seems, renders It possible to still later Glassell, Smith & Patton. He served as state senator from Los An geles county in 1877-78, and subsequently was reporter for the state supreme court for several years, beginning with the 54th Cal. He has been for some time past a practicing attorney, with of fices at 315 New High street, Los An geles. His first book, Elements of Right and the Law, was published about ten years ago. This was followed by Elements of Private Right and a Critical History nf Modern English Jurisprudence, the latter a monograph published in San Francisco. Concerning his book, The ory of the State, to which, by the way, Col. Smith originally gave the title. The State, Its Nature, Its Functions and Its Political Organization, he says it ls an outgrowth of his studies in Jurispru dence, to which he has given almost his whole life. Law and politics, he says, are interwoven, and he had collected ln his work on his first books an abundance of material out of which to frame an essay on government. He saw the offer of a prize in a newspaper, and the work being to his liking, and having the ma terial at hand, he prepared the essay which carried the prize to Los Angeles Col. Smith has been a frequent contri butor to the pages of the American Law Review. All his books have been written in Los Angeles. Col. Smith has been a Democrat all his life. He married in Los Angeles, but his wife has been dead for several years. He has one daughter, the wife of Han cock Banning, one of the Banning Bros., owners of Catallna island. Col. Slhith is tall and soldierly in bearing, and his manners are those of a gentleman, hearty and unaffected. placed in charge of state teachers' In stitutes during the summer vacations. This, added to the continuous strain of his porfesslon, undermined his health and he was compelled to seek a change of occupation and climate, and after two years' service there he resigned and camo tn California to take charge of the clearing ami planting of a section of land nt Fairmont, Antelope valley owned by a colony known as the Fair mont diehard company, in which he is an owner. He wus chosen president of the An telope Valley association, at Its organi zation, and at the last great meeting of the association in Lancaster was un animously re-elected. Mr. Sprague's scnlarly attainments and experience with.business and peo ple fit him excellently for the olfW of assemblyman, and if elected he will ably serve his constituents.

SEDPTIIMKfIB WTI Mk, HENRY T. HAZARD. Candidate for Superior Court Judge. Henry T. Hazard, candidate on the union ticket for superior judge, is per sonally known to nearly every citizen of Los Angeles county, his public ser vices heretofore having brought him into great prominence and given him attendant honors. He was born In Kvanston, 111., July 31, 1844. and came to California in 1853, and except for the years he passed ln college, he has since that year ln this city. He gradu ated in 1868 from the law department of the University of Michigan, at Ann Ar bor.wlth diploma admitting him to prac tice in the supreme court of that state and, on motion, in any other state. He engaged in the general practice of law in Los Angeles until he was elected city at torney in 1881. His service to the city interfered with his general practice, which was further set aside by his sub sequent election as mayor of the city in 1889. As mayor he served with distinc tion two terms, his legal training assist ing him greatly in the conduct of his office during periods when some of the most important public matters engross ed the attention of officials and tax- payers. Since retiring from the office of mayor Mr. Hazard devoted most of his at tention to patent litigation, in which he built up a large practice. He is kiiown to possess a judicial mind which, with his knowledge of the law, so well equips him for the position of judge and l£ elected he will be an honor to the bench. He has been identified with nearly all the great improvements undertaken by this city and his Judgment has been shown to be excellent. His attitude on the subjects of railroads, parks, sewers and other municipal matters, has been endorsed time after time. His standing and some of his achlvements are refer red to briefly ln a letter written by ex- Mayor Toberman, who is expressly W. R. Candidate for Assemblyman of the Seventy-second District. W. R. Steele, the nominee from the Seventy-second assembly district, was j born In Virginia in 1849. With his wid owed mother he came to California In i 1860 and lived in the vicinity of Sacra- j mento until 18fi7, when they moved to | Compton. He has been Identified with j the tax interests of Los Angeles county I for twenty-nine years. Mr. Steele enter- j ed college after he was 21, working his j way through. From the first he was 1 recognized as an independent thinker. Upon his graduation he was urged to accept a professorship. This he refused ! because his interests were Involved with his mother's in their ranch at Compton, j and ho felt it a duty to return and as- I sume the responsibility of it. His work in the Farmers' alliance won instant recognition and his nomination two years ago came from men who would not take a refusal. At the late convention MR. BRYAN'S CANVASS. Bryan gains ground every moment. His southern trip has been even more successful and surprisingly triumphant than his journey in the east. His speeches are all to the point, and he is answering the argument! of the enemy with a clearness and force which per mit of no misunderstanding.—Butte Miner. Whatever the federal constitution may say about gold and silver, Mr. Bryan's own constitution Beems to be one of iron.—Anaconda Standard. Mr. Bryan has gone among the peo ple, and Mr. Bryan has not suffered in dignity. His dignity, however, is not a swallowtail coat a.l air. It ls the dig nity of the honest, candid man who be lieves sincerely in his cause, and ls proud to mingle with his countrymen. Mr. McKlnley may refuse to go to the qualified to speak on the matter. "In my Judgment," wrote ex-Mayor Tober man, referring to Mr. Hazard's candi dacy for the legislature, "no man ls bet ter qualified for the postlon than he. During the two years that Mr. Hazard acted as city attorney, while I was mayor, I found him on all propostltlons that affected the interests of the city uniformly correct and on the right side, and the city during that time was re markably successful ln all her litigation ln the courts. It never paid a cent for associate counsel during that time; ow ing largely to the decided stand taken by him on all legal questions affecting the financial interests of the city, the tax levy was reduced from about $1.40 on the hundred for the previous year to $1 for the first year, and then to 78 cents on the hundred dollars for the last year of his term. "He was, during that time, wholly above the reach of temptation, as I know. The records of this city during those twp years bear abundant evidence of his active, faithful and honest dis charge of the duties of the office of city attorney." This testimonial, though written dur ing a previous campaign, ls equally ap plicable to the present time. Mr. Hazard aspires to be superior judge and though his law practice was suspended for a brief period, his record during that time did even more to fit him for. a/position on the bench. Of Mr. Hazard's career in the legisla ture in 1885 nothing but praise can be said. He Introduced and carried through a bill creating the supreme court com mission which enabled the highest state judicial body to catch up with its calen dar of cases then four years behind. This act of Mr. Hazard's has done much for attorneys and litigants whose cases otherwise would drag for years in the 1 supreme court calendar. he again received the nomination on tfie : first ballot. j Mr. Steele is for free silver and a free i harbor at San Pedro and will not sup | port any man for the United States sen- ! i ate who is not sound on these two ls- ' I sues. In state affairs hp is for reform in j taxation and for a general road law that ' I will insure better roads and place their i construction in the hands of the people j interested in and benefitted by them, : Being a workingman himself, he. from a true knowledge of their needs, will de fend their every just claim. Mr. Steele ! will enter the campaign about October ! Ist and remain In the field until election I day. I When elected to the assembly he will be found to be true blue to his constitu ents and zealous for the good of all Southern California, his oonviotlons re lating to the need of certain reforms being firmly fixed. people now, but he 1 :ed not be sur prised if the people should on November 3 refuse to go to McKinley. PROSPEROUS MEXICO. Those persons who talk of the terrible condition of labor in Mexico neglect to explain why there Is practically no im migration from Mexico to the United States. Nor do they undertake to ac count for the fact that about all our immigrants—people who are running away from poverty—come from gold standard countries. —New York Journal.
