WEDNESDAY JULY at. 1897 WORKING THE TARIFF GAME 'The conferees upon the new tariff have •greed upon their report and it only re mains now for the majority to rush the measure through-bath-houses in order to launch the high protective tariff upon the country. The presidential approval is, of course, a foregone conclusion. As was expected from the peculiar constitution of the house, there has been a pretty general surrender all along the line on the part of the senate committee, as the only means of arriving at a com mon understanding. Dlngley could af ford to be arrogant with the autocrat of the house at his back, so that the senate conferees must be satisfied with so much as he chose to concede. One of the most destructive features of this entire measure that is made ap parent at this time is the manner in which it has enabled the sugar trast to exploit the government and the people at one and the same time so as to deflect Into its own coffers the greater part of the revenue to be derived from the sugar schedule for more than a year to come. The means by which this end has been attained is characteristic. The barons of the sugar trust being at all time.B in touch with the McKinley senti ment, his success was known to them to assure the adoption of a protective tariff and his agents were prepared to give all necessary assurances that sugar should be a favored commodity. Under those circumstances, as soon as the election of Mr. McKinley was as sured the trust lost no time in sending Its agents abroad to purchase every pound of raw sugar that could be ob tained. So thoroughly and well was this order executed that some few months ago the trust had secured and in storage at the ports of New York, Boston, Phil adelphia/ and Baltimore nearly 800,000 tons of raw sugar—which may possibly be increased to 1,000,000 tons before this bill shall have gone Into effect. But the rates to the consumer upon this vast ac cumulation of cheap sugar will be ad vanced to the protective tariff standard rate on the day that the Dingley bill be comes a law, and hence the measure that has been designed to furnish revenue to meet the expenses of the government operates only as a scheme by which the consumers are compelled to pay an In creased rate, every dollar of which isde flected into the pockets of the sugar trust. If we suppose, now that the 800, --000 tons on storage at last account should not have increased up te> the date of the passage of the bill there would still be en hand this 1,600,000„000 pounds of raw sugar. The revenue upon this sugar un der the schedule would amount to about J16,000,00e, all of which will be extracted from the people under the demand for an Increased revenue, but not one dollar of which will go to swell the revenue. And. this Is only one schedule of this precious revenue measure. Really, Re pabllcan Senator Teller knew what he Wto Ulktag about when Be intimated that this tariff was complied In the inter est of trusts and syndicates. HANNA AT THE WHITE HOUSE The report that Senator Mark Hanna had gone to live In the White House is denied as the fabrication of some grace less and Irresponsible newspaper corre spondent. The matter of fact accept ance of the story by the reading public was, however, significantly indicative of popular opinion regarding the relations between the president and the man whose efforts seated him in the presiden tial chair. It would certainly have been a very convenient arrangement for both. It Is Just possible If not probable that such an arrangement had been thought of, even If It was not carried out. Pres ident McKinley may have been reminded of the story of the Arab and his camel. The Arab had gone into camp on the desert for the night, when a furious sand storm came up. The camel, which was tethered outside the tent, made a great outcry and asked permission of its mas ter to thrust its head inside the tent for protection from the savage blasts. The kind hearted Arab consented. The storm grew harder and the camel besought permission to insert its shoulders inside the tent. Again the Arab consented. A little later the camel had squeezed all but its hind legs inside the tent. There was then hardly room inside the little shelter for both, and the camel seeing this, thrust its master out into the storm, thus en abling it to get the whole of its own body inside the tent. If Mr. Hanna should go to the White House to board, even though it were for rest and recre-ation and to visit with the family, there would always be the possibility that some early morning caller would find Mr. Hanna seated at the executive desk while Mr. McKinley wofcld be vainly kicking his heels on the outside. Plainly Mr. McKinley cannot afford to take the rtik, even to oblige an old friend. FIGHTING A MERCILESS TRUST The defenders of the Standard oil trust are prone to assert that the trust Is a great public benefactor because it has made the price of oil lower than it used to be. The people of Los Angeles are given a practical illustration of the man ner in which the Standard Oil company lowers the price of its product, and the reasons therefor in the fight between it and the Puente Oil company. A local item says: The local oil market Is becoming de moralized and prices are going way down. This condition is believed to be a result of the fight between the Stand ard Oil company and the Puente Oil company. The Standard, Oil people made an- attempt recently to buy the Puente company's plant, but failed, and thus far the Puente people have met every cut. The fight will doubtless continue until the Puente company is bought out, fro zen out or cleaned out. The Standard Oil company allows no competition. Precisely the same state of affairs ob tained in Colorado a few years ago. Th? Rocky Mountain Oil company secured some good wells in the Florence dis trict and built up a large trade in Den ver and elsewhere. The Standard Oil company tried to buy it out, but the owners refused to sell. War followed, and in a short time oil dropped from twenty cents to five cents a gallon at retail. The countless millions of the Standard oil monopoly were too much for the Rocky Mountain people and in a short time they were forced to sell out. Then oil went back to twenty cents a gallon andi has remained there ever since. A few days ago The Herald reproduced a few words from the decision of Judge Champlln in the Diamond Match case, and they are worth another repetition. The Diamond Match company, it should be understood, is a monopoly operated along the same lines as the Standard Oil company: Such a vast combination as has been entered into under the above name (The Diamond Match company) is a menace to the public. Its object and direct tendency is to prevent free and fair competition and to control prices throughout the national domain. It Is no answer to say that this monopoly, has In fact reduced the price of friction matches. That policy may have been necessary to crush competition. The fact exists that It rests In the discretion of this company at any time to raise the price to an exorbitant degree. Such combinations have frequently been con demned- by courts as unlawful and against public policy Substitute the words "Standard Oil company" for the Diamond Match com pany, and you have the present case in a nutshell. And, notwithstanding such combinations public policy, and have been frequently condemned by courts as unlawful, it is merely a waste of space to ask, what is going to be done about it? INTERNATIONAL SPORT It Is not very likely that any of the British yacht owners will challenge for the America's cup this year. Mr. Charles D. Rose, who has been for two years mentioned as a prospective challenger, says that up to the present time the thought has not entered his mind the present season. Still, he says: "There Is nothing I would like better than to challenge for the America's cup." Mr. Rose has a new yacht, the Aurora, which will make its first appearance at the Cowes regatta. If the Aurora does well, we may yet hear from her sports manlike owner. In this connection it la amazing to learn that Lord Dunraven and the sport ing writers In England are still whining over the defeat of the Ignoble lord's boat by the Vigilant, and even asserting that he was made the victim of a "Yan kee trick" at the hands of the New York Yacht club. The New York Times takes the ground that the latter cannot, with-, out the low of self-respect, entertain. a| LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 21, J897 challenge from England until the charges are authoritatively set at rest. There is merit in the suggestion, but surely Mr. Rose or any other fair-minded gentle man ought not to be made to suffer be cause of the cowardly Innuendoes of Dunraven and his friends. The winning of the diamond sculls at Henley by Teneyck, an American, to say nothing of the crushing defeat ad ministered by the American college ath letes to their English competitors In field sports last year, should make our English cousins willing to admit that American athletes and American brains are on a par with those of England. Let us have a challenge for the Amer ica's cup; let the representative scullers come over from England and give our brawny men a trial; let either Oxford or Cambridge, or both, send over a 'varsity crew to compete with our Cor nell, our Yale and our Harvard. The American sportsmen are entitled to something better than the caddish whines of the Dunraven crowd. PETTY FALSIFICATION We note with satisfaction that our contemporary, the Express, although a Republican paper and sometimes quite partisan,, has the candor and manliness to repudiate the mass of Cheap John lies perpetrated by the New York Trib une relative to the Bryan meeting In this city. It Is true, there was some misun derstanding previously as to the char acter of Mr. Bryan's address at Fiesta park, but this was corrected as soon as Mr. Bryan, arrived here, and everybody who went to the park knew exactly what to expect; that the orator would discuss live issues of the day. That is exactly what he did, In a broad-spirited, gentle manly, patriotic way. A more enjoy able and a more practically patriotic Fourth of July oration was never de livered in Los Angeles. No fair-minded man or woman was disgusted with it. On the contrary, many people of op posing political faith expressed them selves as delighted with Mr. Bryan's eloquence. People who paid 50 cents apiece to obtain a reserved seat near the speaker's stand did not begrudge the cxpen.se. No charge was made for ad mlFelon to the park, and thousands wen - provided with seats gratis. It may be some satisfaction to a New York paper like the Tribune to Indulge in such petty misrepresentation, but surely the resort to such tactic? must prejudice the Republican cause among fair- minded people who are informed as to the true facts of the care. THE OUTLOOK IN OHIO Chairman Towne, of the Silver Repub lican national committee, has sent a telegram to the chairman of the Silver Republican committee in Ohio, advising against putting a separate state ticket In the field. Mr. Towne says that his suggestion will be followed and that his party In Ohio will support the party de claring for silver. This Is good news and it ought to in- Hure the election of the Democratic ticket by a large majority. The Demo crats in Ohio are entitled to the support of their Silver Republican friends, for they have made an issue of silver and committed themselves fairly and boldly to the full coinage cause. The battle will be fought principally upon that is sue. The Sliver Republicans In deciding to support the ticket friendly to silver showed themselves to be wise and self sacrificing. Perhaps they should have been given some recognition upon the Democratic ticket; but of that it Is im probable, at this distance, to Judge. Whateverthe result of the comingelec tioa in Ohio may be It will demonstrate most effectually that silver is not dead As the Irish gentleman said, to wake a live corpse Is ridiculous and disrespect ful to the subject. EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS OWN HUMOR What is fun? What \s rest? It all depends upon the person and the point of view. Opinions frequently differ. Everybody has heard of the stingy man who refused to let his little boy go to the circus, but promised instead to take him' to see his great grandmother's grave, if he would promise to be good and not tease. The boy's thoughts l were not re corded but they may be imagined. Some people have queer Ideas as to recreation and rest. Nearly everybody finds them In doing something totally different from their ordinary pursuits. They must "get away from the shop" in order to enjoy themselves. But now comes Professor Simon New comb, the well-known statistician, sci entist, lecturer and magazine writer, and saye: "I have seldom felt a more de licious sense of repose than when cross ing the ocean during the summer months. I sought a place where 1 could be alone on the deck, look up at the con stellations, with Lyra near the zenith, and while listening to the clank of the engine try to calculate the hundreds of millions of years which would be re quired to reach the star If she could con tinue her course In that direction without ever stopping." Now the average man would consider that sort of amusement a terrible bore, and he would be more likely to get a headache out of It than he would to get repose. However, If Prof. Newcomb Hkes that sort of thing, why, that Is the sort of thing Prof. Newcomb likes, and It's really nobody's business. Russia has notified the sultan that he must evacuate Thessaly, and Is backed up In the ultimatum by all the powers except Great Britain. Why the discord ant note In the concert? Have Turkey and Great Britain formed an offensive and defensive alliance? The poorest game at baseball played in California this season was between two "crack" Sacramento clubs known respectively as the "Gilt Edges" and the, "Corkers." The city council ought to pass an ordinance compelling them to change their names. Within a short time three cases of stabbing with hatpinshave been brought to the attention of the San Francises police. As the hatpin is obviously neither a concealed weapon nor a side arm the authorities are in doubt and difficulty. "Every SunCay/'said one of the speak ers at the ChJ.jtian Endeavor meeting last Sunday, "there are "0,000 young men who go to the parks or worse places." And why Include the parks among the "bad" places, even by Inference? "The Salt Lake line is sure to follow the San Pedro harbor." That hath a winning sound. Just consider what It means to Los Angeles and all Southern California, not excepting even San Diego. It Is well worth trying for, isn't It? California fruit is well liked in Eng land, and safe and expeditious trans portation Is all that is needed to secure its general introduction. Surely Amer ican ingenuity is equal to the problem. The trees, grass and stubble are in a very dry condition and the danger from fire is great. Extreme care should be taker, by ranchmen, hunters and tourists against possible conflagrations. It was Macaulay who said that the object of oratory was not truth, but persuasion. But when oratory is backed up with the truth It Is irresistible. Which will account for some things. The airship has reached British Co lumbia. Will It please glide further on to the Clondyke gold fields and tell us how matters are getting on? It is fortunate that the Santa Ana man who swallowed his false teeth the other day did not attend the Bryan ban quet. A New York lawyer has been robbed by one of his clients. This is reversing the usual order. The way to eat corn on the cob Is to eat it off the cob. This is paradoxical but correct. Do we get Queen Lil if we annex Ha waii?

Buttercups spread a field of cloth-of-gold, The nightingale her music will complete, And pearly buds to blossom will unfold, And laggard seeds leap laughing from the mould, Till red-lipped poppies peep among the Wheat, To see you at my s'de—to see me at your feet! —Pall Mall Gazette.

By Jove! The Los Angeles Herald puts in as many hours a day doing national pol itics as though we were in the throes of a national campaign.

A Man Who Has Been There To the Editor of the Los Angeles Herald: If you feel disposed to publish this letter for the benefit of those who are fast catching the gold fever of Alas ka you are at liberty to do so. I am speaking every word from experience, having put in several winters in the min ing districts, where we had seven months winter every year. We usually had the first frosts the middle of August. A year ago, about the 20th, the first fall of si)o\v occurred and severe frosts followed. If enough snow lies for sleighing in two daysafterwards no wheels are to be seen, on any kind of conveyance, and you are insured good traveling with your sleigh till the first or second week of the next April. Dis pense with your boots and be well pro vided with moccasins, as you must wear three or four pairs of thick woolen socks or you are sure to lose your toes. A fur coat, cap and mittens, or you are not safe out of doors very long. Unless well clothed you are "sure to freeze through before you know it—either feet, hands or nose. 1 have several times had my pipe in my mouth and the moisture has frozen it solid. From October the mer cury goes gently down but is sure not to rise a degree till April. 1 have experi enced it 60 and 05 degrees below zero, of which slate of coldness one-half of the southerners do not know the meaning. Possibly they never taw snow; ye: many of them want to go to Alaska. All I can say Is to advise those- who have never had any experience in the north to stay at home, or they will soon repent the day they left their native spot. For <■ c strong reason, anyone who is a nulive of a warm country will find his blood Is very thin and poor com pared to that of one who is used to the cold; consequently he' feels the cold ex tremely and is>liable to be frozen through in no lime, no matter how well clothed. I advise all tecderfeet who have never roughed it either In the mountains or thc backwoods to stay at home, and espe cially those who have weak constitu tions, as they are liable to get rheuma tism or pneumonia. I have met a lot of fellows who left home to seek a fortune —not one in twenty of them better than old women—who could not use an ax to fell timber for putting up the log shanty and had no experience with pick or shov el. They cannot cook or bake a cake, and would not think of washing their own clothes. Now, what use are such men away from home, either in summer or winter? Yet they get the gold fever, which is liable to prove fatal in too many cases unless they take my advice. I am not speaking with prejudice, but giving facts. I have seen the largest rivers close their new Ice the middle of November —rapid rivers, too —and have been able to cross with teams the follow ing day in safety. Thos-e rivers have not again floated Ice till the third week in April. All these assertions I can prove to anyone by my diary, with dates. I advise those bent on going to the frozen region not to go till next year; then only those well ported in mining can make anything, and they are more likely to get stranded than make a for tune. A man to make way must be practical, strong and healthy and able to turn his hand to anything at time?; fix up his bunk, if he can get boards; make his bed with grass or anything near to cover the boards. Then, In the warm weather, he gets little or no rest, day or night, owing to the mosquitoes. It is r>ot all gold and honey unless a man is a millionaire and spends a for tune to run the risk of making another. The majority who go will have to work and live as navvies. Having had an experience with the ex treme cold, being used to putting up my log shack, doing my own cooking and washing, and also knowing how to take out gold with a pan or rocker, I would not be afraid to start with a suitable partn.er at the proper time. If arrjjene desires to go and will reply to this let ter in The Herald at once I will com municate with him to his benefit and satisfaction. W. R. W. Los Angeles, July 20, 1897.
