Frank Richardson. Tribune building.. New York; Chamber of Commerce build ing, Chicago.' SAN FRANCISCO OFFICE: 628 Market street, opposite Palaoe Hotel. TUESDAY, JUNE I, 1897. GOVERNOR AND SENATOR The esteemed Times yesterday morn ing succeeded in working itself Into a most admired state of e-xcitement about a scheme to make Governor Budd a suc cessor to Senator White when the lat ter's term of office shall expire-. It IS Weedless to pay to any one at all con versant with the trend of Democratic politics In this state that the scheme is one dreamed out ln the brain of our granite-buttressed friends on the cor ner of Broadway and First street. The Timet" sneers at the governor as a "little man." We hardly know ln what respect his dimlnutivenese appears. It Is not In avoirdupois, for the governor ot California if a remarkably well develop ed and handsome specimen ot American manhood, nor is Governor Budd "small" as a politician, a? Republicans ought to know, for he ha? knocked their schemes as high as Gilderoy's kite-on more than one memorable occasion. He is too big in politics to lend himself to the program marked out by our Re publican contemporary. Perhaps that is where the Joke comes in. It would be an exce-llent thing for some Republicans who may be aspiring to Senator White's seat, or to those who are resting their covetous eyes on Gov ernor Budd's shoes, to set these two stalwart Democrats by the ears. Major Harry Patton is called (rather unkindly by his friends in the Times office) "Budd's Henchman," and iscrediteefwith treachery to Steve White for the benefit of Jim Budd. Patton has never been taken for a flat in politics by those who know him well. He is on record to the effect that he knows of no program to lift Budd Into White's seat, and those who know Patton best will be lieve him most Democrats are not in so much of a hurry to make programs and hatch up schemes to secure-office as our Republi can friends seem to be. It is a long time before Mr. White's term as senator or Mr. Budd's as governor expires— longer than it was between drinks when the governors of the two Carolina? met. Meantime, as politics are shaping them selves 8t Washington, and as the great wave- of prosperity Is in the role of the maiden in the moated grange who sang "He Cometh Not," It is not to be wondered at that Republican politicians should be anxious as to the next elec tions. But their agony is likely to in crease as the time draws nearer, and the hand of the trusts strangling the administration becomes plainer. As for our own side, we will probably go on sawing wood in the offices we have, arid when the time comes the fears of our Republican friends that Mr. Budd may oust Mr. White will be allayed. "Our Steve" is young, and he is doing doughty deeds for his stats and party. He will succeed himself in that seat in the senate, and the governor will con tinue to prove him&elf so big in the ad ministration of this state, and display so masterful a hand in curbing the extrava gance of Republican legislatures and printing offices that he, too, will re reive the com-mer.dation of his fellow citizens in being given a well-earned second term. POLITICAL DEBTS It cannot be said of the president that he is disappointing his friends. The cor porations and trusts that placed him In office have had all things whatsoever that their avarice or their ambition might choose to demand up to the pres ent time. With a subservient house and an accommodating senate there Is hard ly any vantage ground to which the trust interest might not aspire. With Speaker Keed ln charge of the house that branch of congress i 3 a confirmed automaton. The sen ate, however, has not yet been debased, and its manhood is the only barrier that now stands between thi people and the exactions of the plutoc racy. The house takes Its policy from Reed; Reed takes all his orders from McKlnley; McKlnley receives his dally instructions from Hanna, and Hanna Is the representative of all the combina tions that created the administration. Let us see how the affairs of the trust interest have been considered ln the house of its friends. In the Dingley bill as It went to the senate the sugar schedule was written by Solon Humph reys, Pierce Smith, John Farr, Charles Armstrong and J. E. Searles of the American Sugar Refining company. The chemical schedule was written by Thomas Harrison of the Manufacturing Chemists' association. In like manner the presidents of the National Associa tion of Fire Brick Manufacturers and of the Green Glass Manufacturers and of the association for the manufacture of spectacles, opera-glasses, etc., pre pared and furnished the schedules af fecting their several industries. All these were adopted without the change of a figure. The same Is true of the schedules demanded by the cotton spin ners and the manufacturers of woolen goods. These facts were not officially known until they were brought out as the re sult of friction in the senate committee on ways and means. The senate amend ments to many of these schedules have materially modified the figures of the manufacturers, but these latter are still the bases upon which rest the schedules of the bill as it is now presented in the senate. The wools, hides, fruits and other products which had not passed under trust domination were practically unprotected by the Dingley schedules and obtained their first substantial rec ognition in the senate committee. The next Important step taken by the trust Interest was to send the ad- ministration to the assistance of one of Its members who had Just been com pelled to desist from an attempt to filch $3,000,000 from the treasury by which to build for itself a private breakwater at the public expense. The administra tion duly responded to the instruction of its master, and has loaned one of Its officers and passed him over, body and breeches, to the service of a railroad corporation, with instructions to adopt and make official whatsoever act, ln point, that shall be required of him by his master ad Interim. Encouraged by this example, a repre sentative of the trust is now before congress with a bill to legalize the pool ing of the earnings between distinct transportation companies. This is the system that was defeated by the trans missourl decision in the supreme court some three months ago, as being virtu ally a trust ln the business of the trans portation of freight and passengers. The senate committee has agreed to favorably report the Foraker bill, which will wipe out the last vestige of compe tition and confirm the trust principle In this matter of transportation. Of course the proposed bill is hedged around with the usual provisions by which is intended to disguise the real intent of the measure as an evasion of the rule laid down by the decision re ferred to. j But from all this it will be seen that the administration is very faithful ln the matter of discharging Its political obligations and very careful that the burden shall not rest upon its liege. Four years of legislation and adminis tration upon the lines indicated by the developments of three months will pro duce some more millionaires, perhaps, but they will not fall to multiply the tramp population tenfold. THE GOVERNOR'S GOOD SENSE Governor Budd, after a patient and painstaking hearing, has refused to In terfere with the course of Justice in the case of Theodore Durrant, who is under sentence of death for the murder of Blanche Lamont. By his death Dur rant will expiate a double murder, for it is understood that the authorities have plenty of evidence to convict him of the murder of Minnie Williams in th? same place and under very similar cir cumstances. It Is not a grateful task to be obliged to say a word in favor of taking the life cf any human being, nor do we for a moment forget five legal maxim that It is better ten guilty persons should go free rather than that one innocent man should suffer. We freely concede that tiiis maxim of the law is founded on the deepest and broadest grounds of abstract right. But the killing of these two girls, lovely in their character and pure ln life, as all testimony goes to show, was of so brutal, so revolting and cold-blood ed a nature, that, were the perpetrator to slip through the meshes of the law by any miscarriage of justice, it would be a crime against humanity. It is true the evidence fixing the crime on Durrant was all circumstantial, but the chain is remarkably strong and un broken from end to end. To those who have studied the case in all its details there does not appear a flaw. Things may seem otherwise to per sons who have not heard the testimony in detail, but as weighed against the opinion of the court which tried the case, of the jury which found the ver dict, and of the governor, a lawyer of acknowledged acumen himself, such guesses count for nothing. No stone has been left unturned to save the neck of the condemned murder er. His father was a rich man on the day the son was jailed for this crime. From the outset falsification has been the re-sort, and the only resort, of the defense. Nor must the character of Durrant escape notice. The cool, unshaken nerve, the brazen impudence of his de meanor, the stolid confidence of the prisoner that he must go free in the 1 end, and his equally stolid indifference to his fate, now that the last hope is gone, all mark him as a man of no com mon type. Conceding bis guilt, his LOS ANGELES HERALD t TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE t, 1897 character is Just that of the man who could commit these crimes, unparalleled in the history of murder. Presume him Innocent, and his demeanor is simply marvelous. If he did these bloody deeds In the church and disposed of the bodies of his victims as they were disposed of, his further presence in society must be received with natural alarm, and his presence even on earth disgraces hu man nature. Let us remember that the governor has not played ln the role of an indiffer ent spectator in this terrible drama. He has given his closest attention l to the case. No Juror who sat to try the con demned man has been more conscien tious than Governor Budd ln probing to the bottom of the case. His conclu sion Is that there Is no apparent ground for the Interposition of executive clem ency, and we are sure the people of the state will honor him for the stand ho has taken. SCIENTISTS QUARREL Isn't there Just a tinge of the provin cial schoolmaster about the methods of Professor Holden? The professor Is the director of the Lick observatory. His sphere of usefulness Is largely ad- minlstratlve. Officially subordinate to him there have been men eminent in ;ience. The director has had numerous misunderstandings with men of this class. Perhaps he does not understand the aspirations of the truly scientific mind, or possibly he may be disposed to tread too ruthlessly upon paths that should be reserved for men differently endowed. He cannot be considered in the light of a competitor of such men as Professor Barnard or his successor. Professor Hurtsey, in the direction of their specialty, and yet he has quar reled with both of these gentlemen as well as with other astronomers of the Mount Hamilton observatory. It does not seem to have ever been officially decided that the director was right or that his associates were wrong in those disagreements The present difficulty betwe-en the director and Professor Hussey has re-ached its acute stage, and the board of regents of the state university Is now engaged in the effort to throw oil upon the troubled waters. The cause of the trouble is said to have originated in the act of director Holden in seeking to relieve Professor Huesey from the special duties to which he was assigned, and in which he has been en gaged ever since he became connected with the observatory, and to assign him to other and different duties for which the professor declares himself unfitted either by training or experience.. In the absence of explanation It cer tainly seems most injudicious to assign a scientific specialist who stands high in his proper place to a sphere of action that must impair his usefulness. In addition to all this the director should know that science is a plant that will j no<t thrive in a soil of discord. THE ORANGE CROP The orange crop of Southern Cali fornia is now practically sent to mar ket. It amounts, in round numbers, to 7000 carloads, with about 100 carloads yet to ship, making a total of 7100 car loads, with 336 boxes to the car, or 2,385.600 boxes of oranges. Of this crop about 1,000,000 boxes have been seedlings and budded varieties other than the Washington navels, and the orange market price is estimated to have been $1.10 per box, f. o. b., giving Southern California an income cf $1,100,000. The remainder of 1,385,600 boxes of Washington navels have brought an average of $1.50 per box, f. o. b., or a total of $2,078,400, or a grand total of $3,178,400 for the orange crop Just harvested. This income includes all expenses of picking and packing the fruit. If we deduct 40 cents a box for the expense of picking and packing the fruit —« total deduction of $954,240—we have left the sum of $2,224,160 as the value of the orange crop on the tree this season. Next year's crop Is estimated at double the number of carloads sold this season, and the prices ought to be still better. The transportation companies hay? also got some returns from this crop. A charge of 90 cents a box, or $302.40 a car, is made for freight from Southern California to all points east between Denver and the Atlantic seaboard. On 7100 cars this freight item amounts to $2,147,040. This item added to the price of the fruit f. o. b. brings the value of tin fruit at points of destination up to $5,325,410. Next year's crop will there fore, according to present estimates, have a value at points where It is con sumed of over $10,000,000. THE ARID WEST The boundless west cries out to the overcrowded east for a fair exchange. It would be no robbery, and would be ex ceeding fair. We have land and water and a fine, healthful climate. We need money, not loaned so as to make the west pay all the living expenses of the east, but money invested by the gov ernment that would bring a bigger in crease than any it puts into a river or harbor. We need men, and we will take them from thecities of the east, put them on our land, show them how to work, and in a few years they can be self-support ing, self-respecting citizens. The gov- ernment owns the water. Let the gov ernment continue to own it and allow no man or set of men to appropriate it for their own use in order to levy a tax on the producer. Most of the government land has been appropriated by corporations, but ths water as yet has not. In owning and keeping the water, the government could check the greed of the east and make the holders sell their land for a fair price. A corporation will lease a piece of land to a man for five years. He will till It well, build a house and barn, improve it in every way, with the result that at the end of five yearß the corporation wants more rent, as the land is more valuable. Who made it valuable, the corporation or the lessee? The government should take the waters of the arid west, put them on the lands, and allow, say, 10 per cent on the cost to be paid back every year. Thus ln ten years the government would have its money back and have happy homes all over the west, thus relieving the conges tion at the city centers. Let the government appropriate $5,000,000 for the purpose of developing the arid west, put the fund ln the hands of a competent commission known to be deeply interested in that work, and as fast as It is paid back let It be used again for further development. That would be practical, humane and wise. It would bring to the virgin soil of the west the tired home-eeekers of the east- em cities, and they would soon pass from renters to owners, thus becoming better men. Anarchy still finds an,occasional rest ing place in the United States, as the arrests at an anarchist picnic near Fitts burg show. It cuts no figure generally speaking, however, and the occasional Individual who proclaims himself an anarchist is usually as mild a mannered man as never cut a throat or threw a bomh. With such anarchism is merely a vent hole for relieving the harmless ec centricities of a mind diseased. A Washington dispatch informs an anxious public that President McKinley will occupy the next ten days In formu lating a peaceful solution of the Cuban question. In the meantime details of more atrocities and of Weyler's specula tion ln systematic starvation do not allay the fear that any offer of media tion on the part of the United States will be of no avail. A gauzy story comes over the wires concerning a couple of German baroua who are beating their way around the world, the one on foot and the other on horseback. The fact that the two Eng lish lords with whom they made their wager do not exist creates a slight dis crepancy in their yarn. There are students at Harvard who ought to be publicly spanked and then sent home in disgrace. The daubing of the John Howard statue with red paint indicates that some young men go to college because they have neither brains nor common sense. The lead trust is making millions and declaring 12 per cent dividends. Yet it demands an. increase in the duty on that article. Will it get the increase? That depends how much it subscribed to the Republican campaign fund. Present progrees in the senatorial de bate on the tariff bill is described by ad miring citizens as "phenomenal." The same might be said of the imports into this country allowed by reason of the de lay in passing a tariff bill. Kentucky is mourning the death of the oldest mule in the state, but the hardest kicker in the person of Dr. W. Godfrey Hunter still remains to torment the memories of the blue grass Republicans. The nation has been cursed with four tariff bills in seven years, and still we wonder that prosperity does not call and make Itself at home. Mr. Havemeyer says he i 9 satisfied. It doesn't matter whether the other 69,999,999 American citizens are satisfied or not SIGNS When the twigs begin to rustle And the birds are. all a-bustle On the bough; When an azure sky discloses Promise sweet of June with roses On her brow; When the brook that sang so sadly Welcomes every sunbeam, gladly Frolicking; When to wood songs' subtle rhyming Countless echoes soft are chiming, Then it's spring.

LONELY SPOT IN THE ATLANTIC Tristan da Cunha Might Almost Be Classed as Oat of the World Anybody who feels an inclination to lead a really quiet life should emigrate to Tristan da Cunha. an leland, or, to be quite accurate, three Islands close to gether, in the south Atlantic, so far away from anywhere that really they are quite out of the world. The group was discovered and named by the Por tuguese away back In the time when Portugal was something more than n name on the map, but now, of course, it belongs to England, having been ap propriated by her ln 1816 one day when she didn't happen to be busy grabbing stray bits of land more valuable than this one. For awhile some soldiers were kept there, because of a vague suspicion that Tristan da Cunha might be made the base of operations In the interest of St. Helena's terrible guest. After Na poleon's death the whole garrison de parted, except a corporal and two com panions, who had a taste for solitude and asked to be left behind. Slowly the population grew, at first from wrecks and afterward In the ordinary way, and now there are ninety-four peo ple on the Island, divided Into sixteen families. According to a recently published' blue book the colony is an abode of complete peace and moderate happiness. The people have no money and no private property. There are no doctors, law yers or clergymen on the Island, and yet health, safety and piety prevail, and such few needs as the sofl does not s"jpply are met by trafficking with an oc casional whaler. Once a year an Eng lish warship visits the island, distribut ing a few newspapers and letters, and goes away again. The only serious ca lamity that ever overtook the islanders was when, during our civil war, the Shenandoah landed forty federal pris oners there and left them to be fed or starved, as the Inhabitants saw fit. This sudden demand on their resources came near destroying both hosts and guests, but they managed to struggle through the difficulty. The islanders are good to shipwrecked mariners ar.d the only charge brought against them is that they sell extremely tough poultry to captains calling there for fresh pro visions, and try to get as much cloth for old geese as for young ones. Peter Green, aged 88, governs the island, his claim to authority apparently being based on the fact that nobody is 89. His only duty Is to look wise, and he per forms It conscientiously and well.—Buf falo Courier. GERMANS A DUELING PEOPLE Four Thousand Encounters a Tear. Record of Other Countries More duels are fought ln Germany than ln any other country. Most of them, however, are student duels, which cul minate ln nothing- more serious than slashed cheeks or torn scalps. Of all German university towns little Jena and Goe'ttingen are most devoted to the code. In Goettingen the number of duels average one a day, year in and year out. On one day several years ago twelve duels were fought in Goettingen in twenty-four hours. In Jena the record for one day in recent times is twenty one. Fully 4000 student duels are fought every year in the German empire. In addition to these there are the more se rious duels between officers and civilians. Among Germans of mature years the annual number of duels Is about 100. Next to Germany France is most given to the dueling habit. She hasevery year uncounted meetings, "merely to satisfy honor;" that is, merely to give two men the opportunity to wipe out insults by crossing swords or firing pistols in such a way as to preclude the slightest chance of injury. In the duel statistics these meetings are not reckoned, as they are far les3 perilous than even the German student duels. Of the serious duels France can boast fully 1000 from New Year's to New Year's. The majority of these are among army officers. More than half of these result in wounds; nearly 20 per cent in serious wounds. Italy has had 2759 duels in the last ten years and has lost fifty citizens by death on the field of honor. Some 2400 of thesa meetings were consummated with sabers, 179 with pistols, ninety with rapiers and one with revolvers. In 974 cases the insult wasglven ln news paper articles or in public letters regard ing literary quarrels. More than 700 pricipals were insulted by word of mouth. Political discussions led to 559; religious discussions to twenty- nine. Women were the cause of 189. Quarrels at the gambling table were desponslble for 139. A summary shows that, as regards numbers, the enquence of dueling coun tries is: Germany, France, Italy Aus tria, Russia. As regards deadliness of duels Italy comee first. Then come Germany, France, Russia and Austria ln tbe order named. For the most se rious duels the pistol is the favorite weapon in all five countries— New York Sun. The Ruling Passion Strong in Death Douglas A. Levlen, for many years prominent as an editor, died last week while in harness. He had been ailing, and knew that death was near. He sent a messenger boy from his home with an editorial for the New York Evening World at 11 oclock ln the morning. It was highly humorous, filled with the real genius of kindly fun, a beautiful last work of an honorable man The World, on learning of Its editor's death, signed his name to the edito rial and printed cloee to it his obituary. —Fourth Estate.
