Letters in Answer Over tbe Slf asters of
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:
"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

H. G. Otis, President Times-Mirror
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,.

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

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
. 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.

TWO THOUSAND MILES AWHEEL
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
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

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.

by a nut on the sleeve of the muller, and
in an Instant he was being whirled
around at a terrific rate. Before assist

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
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.
"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
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

which passed between office and corres

Twelve of the original thlrty-slx left

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.

hotels he varies, but he is usually up and

To the public: I was seriously afflicted
lor about ten years with lung, liver and
Kidney troubles. 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
