FINANCIAL TINKERING
The result ot Secretary Gage's re
searches in the realm of finance Is most
satisfactory—to the secretary. This of
ficer has solved a most intricate problem,
and the solution is so simple that the
financiers at all the principal cross-roads
are discussing the native s'<ipidity of the
people ln failing to reach an earlier dis
covery of the panacea for all our mone
tary ills. The secretary has demon
strated, to the full satisfaction of Mr.
Gage, that it money be judiciously ex
tracted from the right pocket of his
breeches and transferred to the left
pocket, and then transferred back agair,
ard so ad infinitum, it will increase in
volume, provided you will only pay out
a small percentage for wear and tear at
each change of location, and provided
further that you call the circulating
medium by a different name at eachsev
eral pocket.
The secretary believes, with Dlngley,
that the greenback Is the root of all our
financial evils. The report of the im
pending scheme of reform does not
elaborate the evil of this ancient relic,
but it is quite probable that its legal ten
der quality is the warrant for its con
demnation. At all events, it is to be re
tired, and its place is to be supplied by
national bank notes. In other words, the
currency will be transferred from the
right pocket, where it reposes under the
name of "greenbacks," to the left pocket,
where it will take on the name of "na
tional bank notes." The tax on the na
tional bank circulation, of one per cen
tum, will be reduced to one-fourth of
one per centum, and the volum of the
issue will be expanded to the full limit
of the deposit. Of course the whole
scheme, In a nutshell, Is aimed at the re
tirement of the greenbacks. Congress
will be asked to legislate upon the lines
laid down by the secretary. The na
tional banks will be entrusted with the
administration of the currency circula
tion of the country within certain lim
its, and the hopes and aspirations of the
blmetalist, in the direction of a national
scheme of finance, will become the fig
ment of a half-remembered dream. This
Is the case as it has taken shape in the
mind of the secretary under the inspira
tion of Wall street and the syndicates
that order the financial policy of the
country from that stronghold. Whatever
else the plan may effect, or fail to effect.
It will surely add to the power and in
fluence of the national banks if it should
be finally adopted.
SILVER WILL NOT DOWN
The conservative Kansas City Star, in
a recent editorial, says: "There is no
reason to doubt that the free silver ad
vocates are standing together, even
though they have not made much noise
since last fall. • * • The present in
dications are that another great electoral
battle will have to bt- fought over the
question. •'* * Nothing but a well
developed business boom will persuade
the free silver advocates 1 that prosperity
can exist under the present financial
system with gold as the standard of
value, and there is no reasonable prob
ability that any such bonm will arrive
before the next congresional elections,
though in the ordinary course of events
it may be at hand before the presidential
campaign of 1800."
The foregoing isa fair statement, eom
g from a paper that has consistently
ipported the single gold standard, and
lould be heeded by some of the blind
Dlitical idiots who have never ceased
icuting that "silver is dead."
Sliver will live, because it is bayed on
living principle that must eventually
c vindicated, for it is right. It is
trange that the Republican party can
ot read and understand the lesson of Us
wn history. Organized as the Aboli
iur. party in 1844, it grew into the Repub
lican party of 1856. It was defeated in
the national election of that year, but,
founded upon the antl-e-lavery principle,
It came Into power four years later.
So long as the principle upon which the
war was fought retained the breath of
life, so long as It needed vindication, the
Republican party was kept in power.
From the moment that slavery and the
war ceased to be an Issue, just so soon
as the bloody shirt flapped idly In the
political breeze, the Republican party
was done for; It had outlived its real use
fulness and became the chosen Instru
ment of monopoly and the money power.
Sliver first became a recognized na
tional issue just one year ago, yet in the
November election, only five months
later, it received the suffrages of over
6,000,000 voters. Defeat did not crush
silver; It only Incited Its supporters to
renewed effort and imbued them with
greater determination. The Star has
simply read the handwriting on the wall,
and Is not afraid to publicly Interpret it.
MEXICO, AN OBJECT LESSON
The Mexican government ha» Just is
sued the usual statistical trade report
for the first half of the present year,
and it affords some comparisons tha:.
are Interesting from commercial, finan
cial and political standpoints.
Imports to Mexico during this period
amounted to $23,000,000, against $18,000,
--000 for the last corresponding period.
Comparing the same period the United
States exported to Mexico goods val
ued at $13,000,000, an increase of $4,500,
--000 In the six months In the last six
months the Importations of English
made goods amounted to $3,624,526, an
increase of only $88,627. During the last
three months of 1896, American exports
to Mexico Increased $1,300,000, while the
British exports to Mexico fell off $40,000,
as compared with the last three months
of 1895. Last year the United States
supplied but 47 per cent of Mexico's im
ports, but during the first six months
of this (fiscal) year 56 per cent of the
Importations were American.
During the first half of the present
fiscal year Spain's exports to Mexico
amounted to less than $1,000,000. Im
ports from France decreased $300,000.
German imports amounted to $2,313,000,
an increase of $179,000.
Modern Mexico, in commenting upon
these figures, says: "Mexico is a fair
field in which there are no favors shown
except to those who have the best goods
to sell and can sell them the cheapest."
From this point of view the showing
made is certainly very complimentary
to the United States.
It is also impossible to avoid consid
ering the showing thus made from s.
political standpoint, with especial ref
erence to the widely contrasted flnancia.
systems of the two countries. Mexico
is under the single silver standard, ani
Is prosperous. The United States is un
der the single gold standard and is
groaning under the pressure of hard
times. The panic greatly decreased im
ports from Europe, while all through
the season of business depression Mex
ico's commercial transactions have been
increasing.
The single silver standard, while thus
contributing to Mexico's prosperity, has
also tended to vastly increase home en
terprises in the way of manufactures,
and Its best growth In this line has been
while the wheels of industry have been
comparatively idle in the United States.
These are facts that cannot be gain
said.
There Is another important feature
to be considered in this connection. The
goldbug maunfacturers in the United
States are more than glad to send their
goods to silver-ridden Mexico. They arc
sure of getting their money, measured
by the gold-standard yardstick, for Mex
ico is prosperous and able to pay. In
short, Mexico forms a valuable object
lesson at this stage of the political, in
dustrial and financial game.
MUST COME DOWN
California, ln area, is a very great state.
The largest trees in the world are grown
in it ,and nowhere are there such won
drous ideas in regard to the profits that
should accrue from enterprises and busi
ness of every character. These large
ideas are the product of exceptional con
ditions. Immediately after the acquisi
tion of the country from Mexico, gold
was discovered, and its immense pro
duction induced immigration to an un
precedented extent. Everybody made
money easily; the merchant, banker, the
miner and the laborer accumulated
riches rapidly.
After placer gold mining ceased to be
very profitable the energies of those in
pursuit of wealth were divected to the
acquisition of lands. California, like all
the region acquired from Mexico under
the treaty of Guadaioupe Hidalgo, was
well plastered with iand grants made
by the governments of Spain and Mexico,
and they could be acquired at trifling
cost, and the result was the creation of
numerous land baronies.
In brief time came the era of rail
way construction, from which Immense
fcrtunes were amassed, and as soon as
rail connection with the east was com
pleted, impetus was given to immigra
tion. The lands and climate being phe
nomenally adapted to the growth of a
great variety of the richest productions,
the spirit of speculation became highly
developed, a spirit prevalent in all new
countries, and much more so in Califor
nia than in any part of the nation.
Through the increase of land values,
large fortunes were made, and accumu
lation by many resulted from specula
tion. From the earliest time after Cali
fornia became a part of the United
States the people have been accustomed
to high wages, large profits in business,
high rates of interest upon money, and
rapid appreciation of values under the
extraordinary demands for real estate.
Under such experiences and school
ing tne large ideas in relation to rapid
wealth-getting were developed, and tt U
difficult for the people to give them up
and content themselves with moderate
accretions to their wealth. They have.re.
LOS ANGELES HERALD* FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE U, 1897
slated the reduction of prices of realty,
and ln many instances to the detriment
of the owners themselves as well as to
the country. Large ranches have been
held for better prices, while for the last
few years the tendency has been down
ward, and no great profits have been
realized from them.
Condltlons have changed, and ideas of
gain will have to be moderated ln the
future. There will not be another boom,
and It Is best there should not be. The
country Is now too old, and the times are
too hard, to justify the hope that there
will be another speculative excitement.
We have entered upon a period when
values rest upon a sensible and normal
basis. The practice of industry and thrift
is what is needed, and with It prices of
land will gradually advance, and though
the acquisition of wealth will be slow, it
will be general. The people, as a whole,
will be better oft, but the few will
not achieve such wealth as they
did in the past. The outlook for
the country was never brighter than
at the present time, and one rea
son Is that extravagant Ideas and
ambitions are being displayed by views
and aspirations that are rational. Im
moderate ideas are not uncommon dur-
ing the colonizing period, but they are
out of place ln that of organization. We
have entered upon the latter stage.
The mammoth ranches are of no great
value for pasturage or for raising wheat
and barley, measured by the net profit
they yield to the possessors, but if sub
divided and owned in small parcels,
their productions would be vastly in
creased, as they would be put to the most
profitable uses, and their cultivation
would be more intelligent and thorough.
The adoption of such a policy would as
sure greater business activity, greater
wealth in the aggregate, more employ
ment and general happiness.
POSTAL SAVINGS BANKS
The desirability of postal savings
banks is so generally recognized that it
is strange they were not established
long ago. Columns might be written
pointing out their advantages and th?
beneficial results that have been at
tained where they are an established in
stitution, and nobody has had the har
dihood to assert that the people are bet
ter off without them.
There are at least 12,000.000 wage earn
ers ln the United States to whom postal
savings banks would be a blessing. Es
tablished on the French plan, so that the
savings deposited could be applied to the
purchase of small denomination govern
ment bonds, the common people would
become, so to speak, stockholders in ths
governmental financial system to a de
gree that is now impossible of accom
plishment, and the plan would mutually
benefit both tha government and the
bondholders.
Postal savings banks combined with
the small bond system would greatly
encourage the habit of saving and tend
to discourage unwise expenditure of
small amounts "just because It is easy
to draw the money and spend It." They
would render deposits absolutely safe.
A bill for the establishment of postal
savings banks is now before congress,
in charge of Representative Page Mor
ris of Minnesota. It is suggested that
those in favor of the movement should
inaugurate a postal card campaign by
writing to their congressman, urging
him to support the bill. The institution
must come some time, and the sooner It
is established the better it will be for the
people.
FOLSOM SOCIETY
Another individual of the unconvict
ed population has been caught in the
act. This time it is the prison chem
ist and druggist at the Folsom state
prison. His name Is L. N. Desmarias,
the classic jingle of which might rea
sonably imply a character of rectitude
ln the bearer. But Desmarias was not
troubled with any such old-fashioned
virtue as rectitude. On the contrary,
he put himself in training on the lines
laid down by the public servant with
whom the world is becoming very fa
miliar, who works his office for all that
it will bear. Mr. Desmarias made large
requisitions upon the state for expen
sive narcotic drugs and spirits, which
he sold to the convicts at a handsome
profit. The spirit of abnormal convivi
ality that Mr. Desmarias succeeded in
propagating within the walls of the
prison by this course of crooked thrift
has been the stock mystery in prison
circles for some two years. The dope
fiend and the cocaine-boozer and the
whisky-drinker habitually indulged in
their lethargy or their high-jinks day
after day, to the consternation of the
warden of the prison, until that respec
table institution became almost as dis
reputable as the lobby of the state leg
islature toward the close of the ses
sion. Then it was that suspicion point
ed to Desmarias, who, finding that de
nial would be useless in the face of the
evidence, confessed his guilt and was
promptly dismissed for his violation of
the eleventh commandment. He will
now embark in ward politics, and will
next be heard from as a candidate for
office.
TYPICAL SCALE-BUGS
It was somewhere about the first of
April that the Carnegie and the Beth
lehem armor plate concerns became cap
tious and refused to consider the pro
posals for armor plate advertised by
the secretary of the navy. The armor
was needed for the battleships Illinois,
Alabama and 1 Wisconsin, and by and
through the dictation and manipulation
of Mr. Carnegie, an intermittent resi
dent of the highlands of Scotland, these
American ships are no nearer the stage
of active service than they were on the
Ides of March. Senator Chandler's sug
gestion ought to have been received and
acted upon. He suggested that congress
auitAvorize the secretary of the navy to
trfii* of the armor plants of
(Companies and operate them un
til sufficient armor should be produced
to supply the immediate demands of
the government, rendering, of course,
such compensation to the companies for
the use of their property as should be
just.
But any such spirited action, or In
deed any action worthy of the tradi
tions of our navy, will be looked for In
vain while the administration Is with
out a definite head and the house of
representatives Is being crushed Into
a condition cf Imbecility beneath a ton
weight of adipose autocracy. The sec
retary Is now trying to patch up a con -
tract with the Union Iron works of San
Francisco, with a prospect of success
in the distant future, when the latter
enterprising company shall have had
time to build up the necessary armor
plant.
That which is most needed now in
order to put our Institutions Into an
authoritative working condition is about
four years of a Corinthian Periander,
who will hearken to this advice and cut
off (from public recognition) all those
parasitical ears that raise themselves
so high as to destroy the uniformity of
the national cornfield.
PRAYING FOR PROSPERITY
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch gets after
the prosperity Jugglers after this fash-
Ion: "The old negro In Washington who
is praying for prosperity Is setting a
good example. Prayer is much more
likely to bring prosperity than tariff
tinkering and currency contraction."
Whatever opinion may be held as to the
efficacy of prayer, everybody must be
lieve that the Lord had nothing to do
with the tariff monstrosity now before
congress, while the strictest construc
tion of foreordiination could hardly con
nect Him with the appalling evils
wrought by the single gold standard.
Prof. Andrew C. Lawson, the retiring
president of the University of California
Scientific association, has a theory that
the whole peninsula on which San Fran
cisco stands has been and is gradually
sinking down to sea level. Here at last
would be a sensation for the "yellow
journalism" that would even eclipse the
interest in Durrant.
The contributors to the discussion on
the question of matrimony now going
on in the columns of this paper seem to
have given the subject much thought
ful consideration. The Herald will feel
amply repaid' for the space it devotes
to the debate if thereby seekers after
matrimonial light are enabled to find it.
It Is refreshing to find a Republican
paper generous enough not to be surly
or ill-mannered concerning Mr. Bryan's
approaching visit to California. The
San Francisco Call says: "We are hos
pitable people, and we delight ln ora
tory. For both of these reasons Bryan
will be welcome."
The geography and conditions of Cali
fornia are still but poorly appreciated in
the east. A gentleman arrived in this
city yesterday from New York to receive
the dead bodies of his two brothers, who,
he had been informed, had been slain by
1 the Wahsatch Indians in the outskirts
j of Los Angeles.
The New York World has offered a
prize of $25 for the best translation of
the new sugar schedule into "plain, un
derstandable English." Have Mr. Have
meyer and Mr. Searles sent in their
explanations? They would surely di
vide the prize.
Governor Black of New York either
vetoed or permitted to die over 300 bills
passed at the recent session of the New
York legislature. What an array of
black marks against the alleged wisdom
cf the Empire state law-makers!
Those who contemplate attending the
Bryan, banquet should secure theiv
tickets early. The remarkable public
interest in Mr. Bryan's visit Indicates
that there will be a large attendance at
the banquet.
William Shaw Boy.en says that nine
tenths of the charges against Weyler
are false. The remaining one-tenth, if
they are true, should cause his imme
diate recall.
" 'Another southern outrage' has been
committed in Ohio," says the Chatta
nooga News, ar.d the northern news
papers cannot say a word.
The ostriches of the six Southern
California ostrich farms are in fine
feather. Nearly J200.000 worth of plumes

Editor Dana of the Sun is being "prom

When has the senate within the mem

OUT OF TOWN
Now doth the city idiot his pleasant home
desert,
He wanders off to some old lake, and dons a
flannel shirt,
There in apartments, two by four, he tries
to take his ease,
While fighting animalculae, mosquitoes,
bugs and fleas.
He hasn't room to take his breath, but yet
he tries to smile,
In a sickly sentimental way, for that's the
proper style;
"How is the climate?" some one asks.
"Well," he says, "as a rule,
Although the days are pretty warm, the
nights are always cool."
He wanders up and down the beach, recit
ing poems and such.
And looks down on the other chumps as if
they weren't much;
He talks of boats and rigging and the lar
board and the lee.
As if he would Impress folk that he'd some
time been to sea.
He hitches up his trousers like a sailor on
the stage,
And prattles to small schoolgirls of a very
tender age;
If ew»e one says, "How hot It is!" he
**K>uts, "You goldarned fool!
Although the days are pretty warm, the

An Awakening
To the Editor of the Los Angeles
Herald: Your battle-scarred contrib
utor to this day's issue over the word
"Henpecked" moots phases of marital
advance (!) In a style and spirit clearly
evincing the apropos of his norn d?
plume. This were palpable even had he
omitted mention of Xantlppe's victim,
only a little less renowned than her ter
magant self.
Your contributor alludes to supposed
truths germane to his subject that are
but relatively true, at most. He, or she
for that matter, who will now stigmatize
marriage as a lottery cannot rightly
claim to be abreast of the times.
It Is not the haphazard of fate nor yet
the prudence of the Judicious upon
which the good or ill "match" may be
surmised to depend The existence of
the best assorted, most congenial pair
supposable may gradually grow to a de
plorable contrary; and the most fate
fully unharnessed pair may ln time—by
the fires of affliction and God knows
what—become, regardful of each other,
friends and possibly wedded lovers.
It is not generally true in America
that a bossing wife Is primarily or even
secondarily responsible for the friction
and disaster In her establishment. Nor
yet is it for the reason that the husband
Is cowed or otherwise minimized In
the premises. If the "head of thefam
lly"-in-law so deport himself, as well at
"home" as abroad. In such way as to
dignify that good old Anglo-Saxon word
"husband" (head of the house), It may
be fairly premised that untoward Jar
ring will not for long prevail therein.
But recently the writer casually met
an instance that proved the existence
still of old-fashioned manfulness, even
in Los Angeles. A man, still resident
of this city, came hither ln the late 80s
with a little patrimony, an invalid wife
and three little daughters, investing his
all In a home, which, upon the whirligig
of fate attending the boom collapse, was
hopelessly lost to him. Presently the
wife died, the eldest of the three orphans
being scarcely fourteen. The surviving
parent, though hard strained to do s>\
continued housekeeping, kept his girls
together, although for one entire year he
was practically without employment,
except occasional odd Jobs, kept them ln
school, habited respectably, saw them
grow from children to educated, cultur
ed maidens, now ripened Into woman
hood, the just pride of this humble but
••faithful" man, and sincerely respected
by all to whom they are known.
So that, whatever may come of the
new woman or her theories, so long as
examples such as that aboveappear, she.
must needs confess that her brute man
is not always made in vain—is not al
ways a delusion and a snare.

To the Editor of the Los Angeles Her
ald: If any one could prevent the in
competents and the invalids from the
( marriage habit there would be little
reason for such a discussion as now
; seems to be agitating the columns of
j your paper. When a man loses his dlg
j nlty before his wife, either by losing
i his temper or by a deficiency in man

I woman's respect, much less her love.

Is Too Bad
The eea captains who help people to
