In making this estimate the ■Mid excludes both Maryland and ■ptfsMkjr. States which are reasonably certain to go for Bryan. The electoral votes of these two states, added to the votes conceded by the Herald, would elect Bryan. Even Illinois alone, which the Herald excludes from Its estimate of Bryan votes, would be enough in ad dition to the states conceded to elect Bry an. Is there any wonder that Mark Hanna is quaking in his shoes? THE LAND STEAL OF THE RAILROAD The government land policy Is sim ply beyond ordinary comprehension. No matter what political color the adminis tration may have the general land pol icy is always against the actual settler, the miner and the interests of the peo ple. It always stretches law, grant and construction In favor of depredation on the public lands like the great Scotch lumber syndicate in Mendocino, and in favor of the land grant railroads. These people always seem to have one or more departments of government to aid them in defeating justice. If an honest land commissioner like Sparks is in office, the attorney general is found indifferent; when a government attorney like Judge Call makes things hot the land commis sioner becomes lax, documents are lost nr stolen, statements are forged and hints drop fast and strong—not to be too zealous. Hoke Smith was straight for justice and the defense of the people, but recent revelations show that the land department even under him was honey combed with dishonesty. Subordinates in the pay of the people are in the pay also of the land thieves right ln the land office. Nothing could be more startling to a sensible business view than the con stant patenting of valuable government lands to the railroad companies ln Cal ifornia. These companies received this year about two million acres of the people's land. All this year and for year after year while they have been rushing their patents, suborning witnesses, de frauding settlers, shooting home mak ers in their homes, stealing mining lards and robbing the miners—all this time these railroad companies have been in defiant default tn the American) people. The railroad people have divided their stealings and their legitimate earnings on the inside ring until they have about sixty millions apiece or for each Inter est. While the years of their division of surplus have passed these companies re fuse to pay the interest or the principal they owe the people. This fraudulent di version of surplus funds from the just payment of a just debt goes on without any serious or effective action by the people's agents in the government, not for one year but for decades and forever. What private business man would fol low such a folly? It is simply due to debauchery of government officers by great syndicates of wealth. Every prop erty owner as well as every patriot and every father of a family Is vitally in terested in ending this prostitution of political office to the interests of rob bers of the people. But this is not the worst phase of the railroad misdoings. All the time of these defaults and re fusals to pay the government agents In the land office have gone on smilingly giving to the defaulters the people's lands in thousands, tens of thousands and millions of acres. What possible excuse can there be for such an outrage on every principle of equity? It Is a con tempt of common sense. Would any plain citizen go on year after year turning over great amounts of valuable property to a constant and defiant defaulter? Not only is the land grant which ought never to have been given constantly handed over to these depredators and bribers when it ought to be held against their debts overdue, but besides vast areas are claimed and have been partly seized by the railroad that never were granted to them at all. The whole land grant busi ness and the whole railroad debt eva sion is a mess of corruption that must make a friend of free government sick at heart. AMENDMENT NUMBER FOUR Amendment number four of the series of six amendments to be submitted to the voters of California on the 3d day of next November is of section 6, ar ticle xl of the constitution, and is of ficially known as "senate constitutional amendment No. 25." Its designation on the official ballot, however, will be "amendment number four." If this amendment is adopted section 6 of arti cle xi will read: Corporations for municipal purposes shall not be created by special law:,; but the legislature, by general laws, shall provide for the Incorporation, or ganization and classification, in propor tion to population, of cities and towns, which laws may be altered, amended* or repealed. Cities and towns hereto fore organized or Incorporated may be come organized under such generni laws whenever a majority of the elect ors voting at a general election shall so determine, and shall organize In con formity therewith; and cities ar.d towns heretofore or hereafter organized, and all charters thereof framed or adopted by authority of this constitution, EX CEPT IN MUNICIPAL, AFFAIRS, shall be subject to and controlled by general laws. The amendment consists in Inserting the words "except ln municipal affairs" after the word "constitution" and be fore tho final words "shall be subject to and controlled by general laws" of the present section. . The Intention and effect of these four words, "except In municipal affairs," introduced Into section 6 of article xl !s to enlarge the powers of cities and towns to the uttermost limit In all af fairs that are strictly their own, ar.d to release such communities hereafter from the control of the state legislature In all matters essentially municipal. The amendment Is thus in harmony with the Democratic principle of local self government, and every voter be lieving in that doctrine should give to the proposed amendment his support. The principle of local self government is sound in theory and has invariably been found satisfactory in practice. Excepting the limitations imposed by such constitutional and statutory pro visions as may be necessary to protect people from encroachments on their natural rights, each community, duly and properly organized, should be per mitted to mind its own business in its own way. The contrary theory in the government of municipalities has been, ln operation, a fruitful source of dis satisfaction, and has also afforded abundant opportunity for something more unpleasant in effect and serious in character than mere dissatisfaction. The nefarious ends of machine politi cians, corruptionists and contract job bers have been too frequently and easily attained wherever the sta/.e govern ment exercised a control ln the details LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MOBXING, OCTOBER 15, 189t* of municipal affairs. San Francisco Is in effect governed by the governor and legislature of California under what is known as the consolidation act and, in consequence, for years the municipal affairs of that city have been dove tailed with those of the state. Time and again political thugs and schemers have sought and obtained the control of the state legislature for the purpose of working through legislation that would enable them to inflict some rob bing job on the people of that much be boodled burg. The tendency all over the United States has been in the direction of granting practical autonomy to munici palities. It has long since been ascer tained that there are many things about the government and development of cities that a lot of the legislators hailing from rural districts know not, or but lit tle, of, and that the less these legislators have to say about those things the bet ter for the people of the cities and towns, and the lighter the duties im posed on the statesmen unacquainted with the necessities and demands of urban life. "What we want," says McKinley, "Is money that is equally good all over the world." "There Is no such money," says John W. Bookwalter, In his treatise. "The coin we send abroad is only bullion when it gets there, and most dealers pre fer government bars. The exchange must bo calculated exactly the same whether we use gold, silver or paper ln our domestic trade; and this notion that we "should be at a disadvantage" Is a delusion. The variations in the value of the greenback during our war era were calculated daily, ar.d prices in this coun try rose and fell to correspond. It must. I say. be calculated just the same In gold or silver, and any smart school boy can do lt in a minute in any transaction." The Times continues its vindictive in dictment of the present members of the city council for their advocacy of Santa Monica as the site for a free harbor. Nevertheless, the Times has editorially declared that the harbor question was now a dead issue in the civic campaign and furthermore grossly stultified itself by supporting J. S. Slauson for the may oralty, who by his single efforts did infinitely more against San Pedro than the combined vote of the councllmen It attacks. Mr. Henry George, the special corre spondent of the New York Journal, who has been stopping ln Canton, Ohio, a few days, writes that "Canton will vote against McKinley." Mr. George ex plains tha.t while Gov. Bushnell had a plurality of 547, nevertheless his vote was 141 below that of the combined op position, and 284 below the present may or's vote. There seems to be little ques tion that Canton and the county In which lt is situated will be carried for Bryan. Mark Hanna declared himself confi dent of the votes of workingmen. His confidence is based solely upon their fear instead of their love. Workingmen, however, with the Australian ballot have nothing to fear. They will vote as their conscience dlctates.and it is very improb able that their love for the modest Mark will Induce them to place the arch-foe of labor in a position to still further show his power of crushing them. In the Republican machine shake-up two very excellent men were not renom inated who have made good officers ln the council. We refer to Mr. Munson and to Mr. Kingery. Both of these men have done good, hard, conscientious work in the council. Both were on the board of public works with Mr. Pessell and both deserve credit for their conduct in office. Speaking of angels, eagles, babbling brooks, morning hoodoos, slumped cir culation and hypothecated stock to the tune of $16,000—not to mention water on the brain—oh, mamma! "There's lots of trouble on the old man's mind." OHIO LOST TO M'KINLET. I had atalk with Mr. Beriah Wilkins, proprietor of the Washington Post, to day. Mr. Wilkins represented Ohio in congress several terms. He keeps ln touch with the political situation there, as well as any man in the country. His paper has been neutral, and I think his personal predilections are toward gold. He said, however, that information from his old district in Ohio, from the most re liable sources, led him to believe that Bryan will have 2300 majority there. In the last election the Republican major ity was SOO. Mr. Wilkins received a letter from one of the leading railroad mechanics at Cleveland, saying that Cleveland would give Bryan 13,000 majority. At the last election Cleveland went Republican by 6000. Mr. Conger, formerly chairman of the Republican committee, and at one time a member of the Republican na tional committee, dropped into Mr. Wil kins' office a few days ago and told Mr. Wilkins that he had apprised Mr. Hanna lhat Cleveland was lost to the Republic an party. Mr. Wilkins says that a careful poll of the state, made to ascertain the true situation, gives Mr. Bryan the state by 35,000 majority.—General Joe Rickey in St. Louis Republic. DID NOT RALLY President E. E. Pullen ln his address September 22 to the Bankers' association at St. Louis said: "Banks, especially national banks, have been assailed by the vituperation of ignorance and passion. The banks rallied to the support of the government In the darkest hour of its history and sup oiled the money to defend its honor and Its life." President Pullen was In a i measure mistaken if .he meant to in- I elude the national banks among those i that did the "rallying." Fort Sumpter was bombarded and war began in April, 1861. Lee surrendered April 9. 1565. The first national bank act passed P'ebruary 25. 1863. It was found to be defective and a substitute was passed June 3,1564. Doubtless they would have "rallied," but the fact Is that the war was half over be j fore they were born. It Is a physical | Impossibility for an unborn institution to rally.—Terre Haute (Ind.) Gazette. WHAT FREE COINAGE MEANS Free coinage of silver means more money in circulation. More money means advance In prices. Advance ln prices means the Invest ment of more capital. This investment means an Increase I In the demand for labor. This demand will give workingmen Increased wages.—Buffalo Times. SHRUNKEN SPIRIT. If Mr. McKinley is really Napoleon re- Incarnated, his spirit must have shrunk ln crossing the Atlantic. Napoleon needed no Mark Hanna to think for him. New Haven Union. OUGHT TO PRAT. McKinley ought to pray the Lord to run him crazy if this would give him one-half the splendid ability that Bryaja displays.—Chattanoonga News. THE HERALD'S CAMPAIGN FUND To Help the Cause of the People The Herald Will Duplicate Every Dollar Subscribed That Bryan and Sewall will carry California is generally conceded, but lt would be folly to be overconfident and to desist from meeting the enemy at every point. Mark Hanna is flooding the state with misleading documents, the Influ ence of which must be counteracted; high-salaried orators are stumping the state in the interests of the plutocracy; their misrepresentations must be coun tered. The emergency of the situation is set forth ln the following communica tion from Chairman Alford: We have allied against us4n this contest the combined financial forces of the Old World and the New. With the money of which they have robbed the people, they are subsidizing the press, with the view of preventing the educa tion of the masses. They have hired orators and secret agents, whose business it is to intimidate and deceive. They are Hooding the country with literature, un true and misleading. They have powerful allies ln the railroad companies and other great corporations, who are holding over the heads of their employes the threat that discharge wlllsfollow their advocacy of silver. To meet these conditions we must have at least enough money to pay the expenses of speakers and to pay for the printing and distribution of literature. We need this money at once, and it has been demonstrated that we can only hope for help from the plain people.—WM. ALFORD, Chairman Democratic State Central Committee. » There is no time to lose.

Smith 1 00 ENGLAND AND THE SILVER QUESTION THE FINANCIAL NEWS ARTICLE. New York World (Editorial), October 5, 189«. Some time since there was sent out a campaign circular containing an itorial from the London Financial News, making many statements about the effect of the adoption of free silver by the United States, the gist being that British trade would be ruined all over the world by that of America. This edi torial was attributed to the issue of March 18, last. It was denounced by the Financial News, which said It had not printed any such editorial. An exami nation of the issue of March 18 last showed that it did not contain the editorial. The Thrlce-a-Week World severely criticised the Issuance of such a campaign circular. Later, a second statement was made that the editorial was printed ln the London Financial News in its Issue of April 30, 1894. Determined to make a thorough investigation of the matter, the Thrice-a-Week World cabled to its London correspondent, Mr. Ballard Smith, to go to the Financial News office and, If permitted by its owners, to examine the files of that paper. Mr. Smith did so and found that the alleged editorial did appear ln the issue of that paper of April "0,1894, two and one half years ago. This sets the matter at rest (London Financial News, April 30, 1894.) In matters of International policy neither this nor any other country dares to act ln deliberate antagonism to its neighbors. The comity of nations requires that no power should follow a course damaging, directly or Indirectly, to the interest of a country with which it is at peace. At the same time, we seem to be shaping towards a course which may bring us into awkward conflict with the popular sentiment, if not with the governing powers of countries with whom we hold politically friendly relations. In another column we print extracts from a speech made ln the American senate the other day by Mr. Don Cameron, who represents Pennsylvania. The gist of Mr. Cameron's contention was that the English policy on the all-absorbing monetary question is directly antagonistic to American Interests, and that the United States must throw oft the Influence of English ideas if she means to maintain the steady march of her prosperity. There have not been wanting, of late, Indications of growing irritation with this country for Its dog-in-the-manger attitude towards a question that is convuls ing two continents, and gravely compromising the future of the poorer states ln Europe. This feeling has been voiced In America by Senator Lodge, whose proposal to virtually shut out British goods from the United States until we should assent to a bimetallic convention, though extreme and absurd,lndicates the trend of sentiment on the other side of the Atlantic. Mr. Cameron Is much milder, and makes war rather on those who acclimatize English Ideas ln Amer ica than on this country; but the sentiment has the same origin in both cases. Senator Lodge is not a silver man ln the usual sense, being opposed out and-out to free coinage in the United States under existing conditions, and, therefore, his views, though tinged with strong feeling, may attract more atten tion here than those of the pronounced silverltes. Mr. Lodge Is very bitter about the failure of the Brussels conference of last year, where the attitude of the British official delegates was "scarcely less than discourteous" to the United States, and he believes that nine-tenths of the American people regard lt ln that light. A feeling of this kind is not to be lightly Ignored. We have frequent diplomatic differences with the United States; but, as a rule, there Is seldom associated with these any sense of animus between the peoples of the two countries, and such squabbles pass over and are forgotten. But now we are encouraging the growth of a feeling that on a question which affects the pros perity of millions of individual Americans this country is Inclined to entertain views unfriendly to the states. We know, of course, that the unfriendliness Is accidental, and that our monetary policy is controlled by purely selfish consid erations—so purely selfish that we do not mind seeing India suffering from our action much more than America Americans are sufficiently old-fash ioned to believe that lt is the part of a friend to show himself friendly, and when this country turns a deaf ear to the plaint of half the world, Including all the new world, they, not unnaturally, take it unkindly. It Is not for us to say wheth er the feeling or irritation Is wholly Justified or not; it exists, and that is the main point. Moreover, lt is taking a shape that may entail very awkward consequences on us. The recent proposal! to coin Mexican dollars In San Francis co was a bid toward giving us an object lesson by ousting us from our com manding position in eastern trails. Senator Cameron points a plain moral when he remarks that If the United States would venture to cut herself adrift from Europe and take outright to silver, she would have all America and Asia at her back, and would com mand the markets of both continents. "The barrier of gold would be more fatal than any barrier of a custom house. The bond of silver would be stronger than any bond of free trade." There can be no doubt about lt, that If the United States were to adopt a silver basis tomorrow, British trade would be ruined be fore the year was out. Every American industry would be protected, not only at home, but tn every other market- The United States would suffer to a cer tain extent through having to pay her obligations abroad ln gold; but the loss on exchange under this head would be a mere drop in the bucket compared with the profits to be reaped from the markets of South Africa and Asia, to say noth ing of Europe. The marvel Is thst the United States has not long ago seized the opportunity, and but for the belief that the way of England Is the way to commercial success and porsperity, undoubtedly it would have been done long ago. Now, Americans are awakening to the fact that "so long as they narrow their ambition to become a larger England" they cannot beat us. It has been a piece of luck for us that it has never before occurred to the Americans to scoop us out of the world's market by going on a sliver basis, and lt might serve us right if, irritated by the contemptuous apathy of our government to the gravity of the silver problem, the Americans retaliate by freezing out gold. It could easily be done, and we propose shortly to show, by evidence collected from per fectly unprejudiced sources, that even now the process has begun, and Is pro ceeding at a rate that will astonish mots people, and probably make this coun try regret that it did not at an earlier stage fashion Its monetary policy on principles of friendliness to other nations, Instead of on a basis of short-sighted . selfishness. y X-Ray Coupon I I After this date it will be necessary to present 1 this Coupon in order to visit The Herald's X-ray § Free Clinic. | i"Th« B?»t I. the Cheapest" J » BOSTON goods STORE | J.
