OTIS' RANK COWARDICE
3 He Pnints Anonymous Com* municalions in His Paper r " ■ ——- -• • r BUT RETURNS UNOPENED m \. ■■'■■> »&i ' fc] Letters in Answer Over tbe Slf asters of Those Attacked The Typographical Union Label Is Enough for Otis—He Refuses to Open, the Envelope. Editor Herald: The letters printed be ■ low, marked "A" and "B," were sent by a messenger boy of the regular city mes ' Sanger service to the Times office on Fri day afternoon. The messenger boy was instructed to place them in the hands of Colonel Otis and him only. The boy car ' lied out the orders given him and return ed with a large envelope addressed to "The Typographical Union, City." The envelope containing the letters above mentioned was unopened. A corner card of the Typographical union was printed on the envelope addressed to Colonel Otis. This may explain why It was un opened. In order that Mr. Otis might have an opportunity of acting fairly, the letters were enclosed In ((plain envelope, addressed In handwriting with which he was not familiar in the following way: "Mr. H. O. Otis, Times-Mirror Company, City." This was taken to tire Times office by Mr. Charles Fisher, a person unknown by Col. Otis. Several unsuc cessful attempts were made to approach the colonel on Friday. On Saturday morning another attempt was made, again without success. About Ip. m., Saturday, however, Mr. Fisher was suc cessful. He handed the letter to a gen tleman who acknowledged being the persorf asked for, and was asked who he Was and whom the letter was from. Mr. Fisher replied that it was from the Council of Labor. He was told to wait, and in a short time an envelope wns pre sented to him addressed "The Commit tee." Mr. Fisher brought this to the un dersigned, who on opening it found the contents to be a torn envelope with the following words written upon It: October 10,1896. "Respectfully returned to the Com. of Labor Council, City. "With the response of the Tlmes-Mlr ror Co. to all points formerly In dispute. "H. G. OTIS." The envelope also contained a copy of a printed circular dated October 7, 1896, which has been sent to local mer chants and business men purporting to give a statement under six heads of the case "Organized Labor vs. Los An geles Times," and also a copy of the Times' 1 pamphlet, entitled "A Plain Statement, of Bcd-Rock Facts." The most Important enclosure of all was the letter Jn the original envelope again re turned unopened. JOS. PHILLIS, Los Angeles, October 10. LOS ANGELES, Oct. 9, 1896. H. G. Otis, President Times-Mirror Company Dear Sir —Although not mentioned by name, by insinuations I have been mis represented in this morning's Times. The ethics of the newspaper profession recognize that the right to reply In the same journal where ,the attack was made should be conceded without preju dice. This right I ask now. Will you concede it? If not, please return these Utters, (a copy of which has been taken, and will, lwcase of your refusal, appear in other papers here), by bearer. Very respectfully yours,. JOS. PHILLIS, Member Board of Directors of Los An geles Typographical Union No. 174. LOS ANGELES, Oct. 9. To the Editor of the Times:.. The let ter signed "Charles W. Palm," appear ing on the eighth page of your paper this morning contains mis-statements which I ask the right of answering in your columns. A reply is necessarily longer than the communication to which it has reference, and in desir ing not to encroach too much on your space I shall, perhaps, not treat the matter as fully as I ought to. I shall, however, trust to the fair-mindedness of your readers to compare the state ments in the letter referred to with the denial herein contained, Mr. Palm states that "the list of so called union offices In this morning's Times (the gentleman refers to the let ter In Thursday's Times signed 'A Fra ternity Printer') is an exact copy of a card that was circulated in the recent county conventions." As no such card, or any card having upon it the names GEORGE DU MAURIER—The Great English Artist and Popular Novelist George Lewis Palmer dv Maurler, artist and author, was born in Paris March I «, 1834, and educated In that city, but was a British subject. His grandparents on his father's side were emigrants fro m France during the reign of terror He went to England at the age 0f.17 and stu died chemistry under Dr. Williamson at University college, London. Afterwards he studied painting in Paris under the famous It, Gleyre, also In Antwerp and Dusseldorf. He first began to draw on wood for&nce a Week afterward for. Punch and the Cornhill Magazine, and subsequently he joined the Punch staff. Since that time his weekly drawings made him one of the best known and most admiredl of the contemporary artists and satirists. Mr. dv Maurler has Illustrated Esmond, The Story of a Feather, Thackeray's Bal lads and many other books. He was also an associate of the royal society of painters In water colors. A special ex hi bit lon' of his works was held at the rooms of the Fine Arts society In 18S5. at tne In ISM Mr. dv Maurler published a novel, Peter Ibbctson In Harrier's Mair- Ma«ii a ne d "f "<? vel ' T ';»oy. appeared in the October'numK Harped wwk as an artist lecturea occasionally on subjects connected with his of the union offices in this city was dis tributed at those conventions It is need less to say that the statement is abso luely false. He has used a copy of a card Which Is, and has been for some time, out of date, for the good reason that the list has been largely Increased. People who are too cowardly to He outright distort the facts |n such a way as to be even more Injurious than an out and out falsehood. Mr. Palm may not belong to this class, but he uses their methods. It would be making a greater demand on your space than we feel Justified in asking were we to deny all the misrep resentations crowded in Charles W. Palm's short letter. Permit me, how ever, to deny, absolutely and entirely, the last statement he makes, namely, that "after the article appeared In the Times this morning, a delegtae from the union called on the 'other' offices and by the usual misrepresentation and promises of political printing, secured the signatures of six of the smaller of fices." . I win conclude by saying that if Charles W. Palm will prove to the sat isfaction of any three reputable citizens that the mayor or the Ministerial asso ciation, or any other public body In this elty, would appoint, that "six signa tures," or any signatures, were secured to the letter which appears in last night's Express and this morning's Herald, and which you declined to print In this morning's Times, by promises of work, or promises of any kind whatsoever, I will pay to any charitable Institution which Mr. Palm may designate the sum of $60 in United States currency, If, on the other hand, that gentleman will promise. In case of failure to substan tiate his statements, to pay the balance of wages due to the union printers, who had to compromise with him fpr 66 cents on the dollar when his office was declared an "unfair" one. In addition, the same offer holds good If Mr. Palm can prove, as he Insinuates, that "but fifteen out of the fifty-seven offices In the city" are union. Very re spectfully yours. JOS. PHILLIS.

Steamers from- Europe have brought back many persons in the last few week* who spent part of their stay abroad In cycling toure. I Everybody seems to vote this method of travel a most delight fbl}*uccess. ' As One man expressed It: "There was only one drawback to our trip, and that was that it was too short." Yet his party traversed 2000 miles awheel and saw a great deal more than they would have done from railway trains. England is, perhaps, the favorite touring ground of American cyclists, but they were to be seen In France, Ger many and Switzerland in fair numbers. Of course, the excellence of the roads over there Is most constantly In the mouths of those who describe their wheeling experience in Europe. An other feature is the constant interest aroused by scenes through which they passed. Men who had previously traveled through a country, merely visiting the large cities and the places most fre quented by strangers, were agreeably surprised at the Succession of delights unfolded In cycling. They acquired an acquaintance with people and customs and traditions, which had wholly es caped them when In the beaten path of ordinary sightseeing.—Chicago Chron icle. SHELTER FOR SITTING HENS. Put the sitting hen In an open shed or any other sheltered location. Use soap boxes for nests, open at one end, so that the hens must walk In on the eggs. Make a yard of lath four feet long, two feet high and two feet wide, Inclose the box, the end of which should be open so as to permit the hen to come off or go on at will. Provide food, water and a dust bath for each hen, with a cigar box in which oyster shells, ground bone and ground charcoal, mixed, are placed. The dust bath is important. Simply scoop out a place on the ground floor and fill it with fine coal ashes, sifted. With this arrangement the hens do not disturb each other, and but little care and attention are required. The hens can dust and exercise, and they can not leave their nests. When the chicks are hatched these lath runs may be placed outside, so as to give the chicks a chance to forage and grow. ALUM TO PURIFY WATER. A method for purifying water and for keeping it sterile, or, in other"Words, to destroy and prevent bacteria, Is to put alum in the water. Tie a large lump of alum securely to a long string and swing it around a few times in a tub of water, or pull it up and down in a ewer. It makes the water brilliantly clear for .laundry or bath.—Philadel phia Public Ledger. A PLEASANT PROSPECT She—Ma says she knows that when we are married we won't live so like cats and dogs as she and pa do. He—No. Indeed! Your ma is right. "Yes. she says she Is sure you'll be easier to manage than pa Is."—New York Weekly XiOS AUT&HELBB KBIIAJLBtt STJTTDAT MOBSTOfGk, OCTOBER Ii; 1896. ARIZONA NEWS Mrs. C. M. Lane, wife of the well known California mining man, who not long ago bought the Blaisdell properties near Yuma, is a Democrat ready to back her opinions with solid cash, says the Tucson Star. A day or two ago, while on her way to Yuma, a gentle man in the same car said to a friend that he would willingly bet a million dollars that McKinley would carry Cali fornia. Mrs. Lane overheard the re mark and askeß the gentlemen tf he would bet anything less than a million. "Oh, yes," he replied; "I'll bet any sum." "Well, name your sum," said Mrs. Lane, "I'll bet you any amount from $100 to $1,000,000." The million dol lar man turned the conversation Into another channel. • » • The Mineral Wealth speaks of Mark Smith being a chronic office-seeker. We hardly think that fact will militate against him in the least. He has been In Arizona twenty years and has held office eight years. Bucky O'Neill has been a resident of Arizona seventeen yebrs and has held office or was a bien nial office-seeker the greater pat of the time. He was first a deputy sheriff v marshal, then court reporter for this district; was elected probate judge of Yavapai county. Following his term of probate judge he was sheriff for two years, and was again nominated to that office by his party, but withdrew from the race before election. Two years ago he was a candidate for congress and now aspires to the same office.—Mohave County Miner. , • • « A. L. Carrier, an old prospector. Is an Inmate of the slaters' hospital, says the Phoenix Republican, where he Is being treated for what may be a fatal acci dent. From what can be learned the old gentleman lives In a tent about five miles north of the city, and late Satur day night he was awakened from His slumbers by the furious barking of a dog. He got up to ascetaln the cause. He had no sooner stepped outside his tent when he was felled to the ground by a blow In the abdomen. The blow was struok by a steer and one of the animal's horns entered his bowels, mak ing a terrible wound, and allowing the intestines to protrude. He was brought Into Phoenix as soon as he was dis covered, and now has only a fighting chance for his life. • • • Every free silver voter should be careful where he places his vote for del egate to congress, says the Jerome Min ing News. Mark Smith is a silver man, who, If sent to Washington, will be In close touch with the Bryan administra tion. If Arizona Is to get statehood, Mark Smith can accomplish it. ..*>•• Col. Cotton returned yesterday from a trip to Blsbee, says the Republican. He was an eye witness of the flood that occurred there, and says it was some thing terrible, and the damage to rail road and other property will amount to $100,000. All the bodies of the people drowned have not yet been found, although a force of men Is searching In the flats where the bodies of the two Zeek child ren were found. The hall In the flats was three feet deep two days after the flood, and the searchers have to use picks In order to prosecute the search. He said the storm came from two clouds which met southwest of the city, and took a funnel shape. The flood of water and hall came down from the mesa west of the Whetstone mountains, striking Mr. Zeek's house and carrying away with It Mrs. Zeek and her two lit tle boys, and also another lady and two children who were visiting at Mrs. Zeek's. The flood continued on Its way, carrying houses along as If they were chips. Several Mexicans who lived on the flats are supposed to have been drowned, as their bodies have not yet been discovered. • • • The burglars who have been operat ing In Phoenix for several days past have probably changed their tactics and given Tempe a chance for some thing to talk about. Monday afternoon thieves entered the residence owned by Lon Forsee, but occupied by the Misses Payton, and carried oft what Jewelry the house contained, as well as all of the wearing apparel of the young ladles. The deed was committed In broad day light, ar.'d it must have been a nervy gang that would do such an act, when any chance passerby might observe their action. The young ladles were ab sent from home at the time.—Phoenix Republican. • • • A report was brought Into Hackberry Monday by Mohave Indians, says the Kingman Miner, to the effect that a few evenings before, while the em ployes of the Barnhart company, oper ating on the Colorado river, a short dis tance above Scanlon'B ferry, were at .'•upper, they were startled by a terrible roaring In the canyon above, and were horrified to see a body of water tower ing twenty feet above the level of the river, coming down on them at railroad speed. They had Just time enough to es cape to high ground, when the wall of water broke over the company's works and when It had passed away there were left the placid, shining sands, as oC yore. The loss will be heavily felt by the company, as it had Just put the works In running order. The cause of the flood is unaccountable, as no rain has fallen up the river for over a month. • • • The Kingman Miner says: A Mr. Kelly arrived In Kingman Thursday evening in search of a doctor to attend a man named Joe Kaus, who had that morning been badly Injured In the mill of the Cedar Valley Mining company at Cedar. Mr. Kaus had been working In a settling tank and was wearing a pair of rubber boots. Stepping from the tank to the top of one of the pans, which was in motion, his bootleg was caught by a nut on the sleeve of the muller, and in an Instant he was being whirled around at a terrific rate. Before assist ance reached him his leg below the knee was broken and the flesh stripped from the bone. The sight was a horrible one, and the suffering of the poor fellow was Intense. A doctor has gone to Cedar to try to save the man's life. •• • - William Cannon, miner and contrac tor.

Both of these mines have beem bonded by Dan Gillette, representing the Hearst es tate. Mr. Cannon, who has worked In and around the mines of this county for the past nine years, says these mines are the best he has yet seen, and will support a large mining camp.

TOURING WITH BRYAN. William Jennings Bryan Is a worker. tt any one doubts this, let him engage himself as a reporter on a metropolitan dally, strap his grip and accompany the presidential candidate on one of his fa mous speech-making tours. It will take but one day to convince an unbeliever that Mr. Bryan has been a "record smasher." He began breaking records three hours after he was nominated. The first championship won by him was that of handshaking. This la how he accomplished that won derful feat: Nine hundred' people were standing la the corridor of the Clifton house In Chicago on the night after his nomination. All were eager to grasp the band of the man who had electrified the Democratic convention the day previous, and had just been its choice as a candi date for president. Some were fortunate in getting close enough to shake Mr. Bry an's hand, but he soon called a halt, and, In a vole* that could be heard a block away, shouted: > ■'Everybody who haa not shaken my hand hold up theirs." At this Mr. Bryan threw both of his hands into the air. So did everybody else. They thought they were going to form In Indian file for a "grand" recep tion. They were dlsapppointed, for Mr. Bryan said: "r*ow, all shake together." When this was done, he told the crowd he had shaken hands with them all, and then he retired, laughing heartily. Hlb next record was that of "speech making." It was on the trip from Chl oago to Omaha, when he spoke at every stop the train made. The speeches were short, but he detained the train long enoguh to make it four houra late in get ting Into Lincoln. Mr. Bryan did not accept any railroad favors until he left Lincoln on this pres ent trip, when he accepted a private car over the Missouri Pacific to Kansas City, of which his law partner Is counsel. He would give out that he was to leave on a certain train, and would be about the last man to reach the station. He buys his own tickets and secures his own sleeping accommodations. Mrs. Bryan usually has accompanied him on his trips. They would take a sec tion Irtfthe sleeper and sit facing the di rection In which the train was going. Then, probably, to prevent/ people an noying them, Mr. Bryan would fill the seat In front of him with bundles, In variably placing his renowned white Pc- i dora hat on top of the lot, then lying comfortably back for a rest. It does not require the announcement of a station for Mr. Bryan to get out on the platform. As soon as the train be gins to slow up, he arises and walks to the rear platform. He aots as though It was automatic for him to do this. He usually requires no introduction, but when the crowd begins to yell for a "speech," he bows politely and never re fuses the demand. During the time the writer accompanied the candidate upon his trips, which was from the time of his nomination up to last week, Mr. Bryan never showed himself to less than 500 people, with but one exception. This was on his arrival at Chicago, when he was announced to reach that city at 10:30 a. m., but arrived there an hour ahead FLETCHER R BURT A Prominent Man and Capitalist, with Offices at South Main Street, Tells of His Cure From Rheumatism and Impotency by Dr. Sanden's Electric Beit LOS ANGELES, CAL., Oct. j, 1896. DR. A. T. SANDEN: Dear Sir—Out of pure gratitude I give you my testimonial, so as to let others know what your wonderful Belt has dona for me. 1 made application to your San Francisco office some months ago, but was skeptical and did not purchase until after 1 had seen your belts at your office in this city. I was in bad shape at that time. I had-lost the use of my limbs by repeated and severe attacks of rheumatism. 1 was so bad that 1 could not get around without aid. I also lost my sexual power and had been impotent for some years. I doctored with many of the leading physicians on the Coast, but could not regain my health. I then went to New York City, md again was under treatment, but without beneficial results. 1 came back to the West again, feeling that I must end my days in misery and pain. Such'was my condition at the time I purchased your belt last June. The first time I applied it 1 felt relieved, and now, after Its use for a little over three months, I am as strong as any man of my age—6s years. Marvelous as it may seem, your belt has done the work, and done it well. lam now free from rheumatism, having gained the use of my limbs. My sexual power has also returned and 1 feel like a new man. I am well known in Los Angeles, and, in fact, all over the Coast, having numer ous ranches in Montana, and am willing at any time to verify the above. FLETCHER N. BURT, S. Main St., city. When you see the testimony of a man like Mr. Burt, who not only has regained the use of his limbs, but has had his manhood restored, you can no longer doubt as to a cure from Dr. Sanden's Electric Belt. You know that electricity is a cure for nervous and chronic diseases, and scientists tell us that a mild, continuous current of electricity applied for a long time is superior to a strong current applied for a short time. Such a current of electricity will be found in Dr. Sanden's Belt. The book, "Three Classes of Men," should be read by every man that is weak. It is free upon application. If convenient, call and test this wonderful Belt. Address SRND6N ELGCTRIC CO.. 204' i South Broadway, coraor Second, ...

There were scarcely 100 people at the station, but when it was an nounced that he was at the Auditorium hotel, Michigan avenue and Jhe. lake front were one-live, moving mass of people. Mr. Bryan takes no time to eat. When he can grab a sandwich he does so, but "eating" is a side Issue with htm. He has repeatedly declined to ride in a proces sion. When he has spoken at cities and towns at night, he would request the committee on arrangements not to com pel him to ride behind a lot of horses. He prefers to be driven to where be is to speak In a closed carriage. When Mr. Bryan left Chicago for Lin coln a few days after his nomination, he was accompanied by thirty-six newspa per reporters and sketch artists. Four of these .were from Chicago; the others were from cities in the . east. These thlty-slx men were selected for their hustling abilities and physical endur ance. Scarcely had] he been traveling a week till one by one the men began to tire, and many were the telegrams which passed between office and corres pondent, asking that relief be sent. Twelve of the original thlrty-slx left Lincoln with the candidate this week. To the newspaper reporter Mr. Bryan Is most courteous, but, having been a newspaper man himself, and knowing the value of a "scoop," he Is most care ful in gratifying interviews. He prefers to do all his talking through the press associations. He has' been known to tell a reporter who thought he had a "scoop," that If he permitted an inter view, it would have to be given to all the papers. In this way he has kejt In touch with the "boys," and among the lot there Is no fighting. While traveling, sunrise Is the time of Mr. Bryan's arising. When stopping at hotels he varies, but he is usually up and astir long before the hour for break fast. He cares little what the papers say about him. During my stay with him I never heard him allude to any particu lar thing In the papers. Once, when we were leaving New York, he told me he was glad to note that since his arrival in New York, he had noticed that none of the papers had called him an anarchist either In the news columns or In the editorial. This, he thought, was due to his speeches, and showed that he was educating the better class of people In the east. Whatever Mr. Bryan may have been before his nomination, slr-e the day he was honored by the Chicago conven tion he has been a laborer, working harder by far than the farmers, whose cause he is so ably upholding before the country.—Denver Post, Call tel. 243 for ambulance.

Tongue could never ex press the misery I endured during those years. I was reduced In flesh until I was a mere skeleton. My sight and hearing were badly Impaired; was constantly troubled with constipation and plies, and had a severe chronic cough. In short, life was a burden and death would have been welcome. I was treated by various spec ialists without avail. I Anally resolved to give Dr. Wong Him, of No. 639 Upper Main street, a trial. Of course, like many others, I had no faith In a Chinese doctor, but It took only a few doses of his life-giving: herbs to knock all the skepticism out of me. In Just Aye weeks the doctor pronoun ced me cured, and now 1 can truthfully say that I was never healthier and never felt better In my life. My sight and hearing are both fully restored; that obnoxious cough, constipation and piles are entirely cured, and I am rapidly gaining In tiesh, having gained forty pounds in two months. I earnestly recommend all sufferers and skeptics to give the doctor a trial and be convinced of his superior skill aa a phy sician. JOHN M. STBVUNSON. 630 Bellevue avenue. Los Angeles, C:il. To the Public: I take pleasure In tes tifying to my marvelous recovery under the treatment of Dr. Wong Him of 639 Upper Main st., Los Angeles, from a num ber of stubborn aliments, among which were chronic sick-headaches, dyspepsia and kindred stomach troubles, heart affec tion and kidney disease. But what I con sider this physlcan excelled In, so far as my case is concerned, was In the restora tion of my eye service. Astigmatism, coupled with other disorders, was my af fliction in this respect, and. although a number of well known skilled oculist* In ■ome of the larger cities of this country advised me I should always have to de pend upon glasses, and receive but poor service even then. Dr. Wong Hlm's rem edies have enabled me to abandon totally the use of any artificial help to sight, and my eyes continue to give such service, both for near work and distant, as Is truly wonderful. To the skill and remedies of the physician named ran alone be attrib uted a revolution In my physical condition throughout that puzzles those who knew of the "Incurable" character ot my af flictions.
