OFFICIAL MURDER
The tragedy at Latimer last Friday
came as a shock to those who had fondly
dreamed that the end of the strike was
In sight.
The action of the sheriff was unwar
ranted. He was, to all appearances, a
coward, who, at the approach of physi
cal danger at the hands of unarmed
men, lost his self-possession and used
his official authority to cause the shoot
ing down of a score or more of human
beings.
The Associated Press account says
that the sheriff gave the order to fire
upon being struck by one of
after having read the riot act to the in
tercepted marchers. The sheriff himself
says that the fatal order was given after
one volley had been fired into the air,
and while himself subject to physical
violence by the strikers.
It makes little difference, either way.
The sheriff's version hardly lessens his
responsibility. What he should have
done was to cause the arrest of the man
who struck him. Then, if arrest wasre-
Bisted, he should have used as much
force as was necessary to take the actual
rioters into custody. The sheriff was
not in the position of one man confront
ing an armed, raging mob. He had at
bis back 102 men fully armed and sworn
to execute his orders. The force was
amply strong to maintain the law with
out the taking of human life. The strik
ers, co far as is known, were without
weapons.
The sheriff further excuses himself
by saying that the foreigners were a des
perate set, who value life at a very small
figure. Perhaps they were; but they
had been orderly enough for two lon :,
weary, hungry months. They had not
destroyed property, nor had they mur
dered anybody.
But, admit that the strikers were des
perate foreigners, holding life at a very
email value, what then? Admit that
they were degraded, vile in their mode
of life, lower than the beasts of the field,
understanding no English, having no
comprehension of the real worth of
American Institutions, what of that?
Who Is responsible?
Under the American system of protec
tion, so called, the bituminous coal op
erators have been protected by an am
ple duty for many years. It was assert
ed that the protection was for the benefit
not of the employer alone, but to assist
the working man, the coal miner, who
would thus be protected against the
"pauper labor" of Europe. It would
enable the operator to pay larger wages
and be a mutual, equitable benefit.
How did this fine system of protection
work in actual practice? The operator
got the benefit of the higher prices made
possible by the duty on foreign coal,
but he did not share it with the Ameri
can miner. On the contrary, he sent to
Europe and imported by contract the
lowest scum of that country—men who
would live in hovels upon food that a
decent citlsen could not stomach—men
•a whom the commonest American ne-1
ceeeitlei were luxuries beyond, the fond
est dreams of their starved existence!
These men worked at very low wages,
i wages that would not support the Amer
. lean miner, and were rich by compari
son. A steady stream of contract labor
was poured into this country until the
practice Became a crying scandal and a
dangerous menace. Then, after many
fruitless attempts, laws forbidding the
Importation of contract labor were
passed, and the stream was stopped to
a considerable extent. The evil, how
ever, had been accomplished and. the
curse was upon the land.
Pauper labor thrived on the wages at
first paid. Then reduction after reduc
tion became the order of the day, until
at last the lowest of the low Hungarians
and Poles rebelled —they could not live
Upon the miserable pittances granted by
the operators. The strike followed, and
then, yesterday's tragedy.
The courts, too, must bear their share
of the responsibility. Government by
injunction has overreached, itself. If the
excessive restrictions imposed by th-j
Injunctions against the striking miners
had not been in force, the marching of
unarmed strikers would not have been
In violation of the law. The sheriff, by
any stretched conception of his duty
and authority, could not have set tor-h
with his 102 armed deputies, prepared
to take human life. Nothing but an in
junction like those granted by the West
Virginia and Pennsylvania judges would
have warranted such a course.
As one falsehood leads to another, so
one act of oppression leads to another,
until the bundle of evils gets beyond
human control. Then the crash comes.
The immediate future of the coal
miners' strike is hard to predict. It is to
be hoped that the incident, deplorable
as it is, will not be seized upon by the
opponents of law and order to foment
other outbreaks. The strike ought to be
settled at once, even at great sacrifice.
The operators and the labor leaders
should get together. To further pro
long the strike is playing with a deadly
explosive.
HE ACTED A MANLY PART
William J Bryan was a passenger upon
the Santa Fe train that suffered a col
lision in Kansas one day last week. He
was uninjured, and in common with
other passengers similarly fortunate he
did what he could to alleviate the suf
ferings of the Injured. Being one who
is prominent before the people, his acts
at the wreck were described in a mat
ter-of-fact way in the press dispatches.
The incident Is seized upon by our
morning contemporary to cast a most
unwarranted slur upon Mr. Bryan's be
havior. It charges, by inference, that
Mr. Bryan regarded the tragedy as an
opportunity to secure for himself a great
deal of free advertising, and that he
made the most of it. The slighting as
sumption is one that seems to be en
tirely gratuitous. Mr. Bryan simply
acted the part of a humane man, and he
could not have done less without giving
real cause for criticism.
The Associated Press Is a non-par
tisan newsgatherlng organization. It
cannot, by the wildest stretch of the
Imagination, be accused of being partial
to Mr. Bryan. But Its managers know
news when they see It. The presence
and the acts of Mr. Bryan as those of
one of the most prominent American
citizens, had a substantial news value,
and they were so chronicled. Nor was
the story of the disaster subordinated
to Mr. Bryan's movements. The lat
ter were simply made an incident ln the
whole account. Speaking locally, The
Herald mentioned Mr. Bryan's name in
the heading of the dispatch, but made
no attempt to excessively exploit his
deeds.
The most reprehensible part of the
article which we criticise was Its ob
vious effort to make It appear that Mr.
Bryan himself sought notoriety from
the affair. Nothing could be further
from the truth.
Let us mention, by way of compari
son, an editorial commendation, only the
day before, of a scene that took place
at the hotel where President McKinley
spent his summer vacation. The presi
dential party gathered on the hotel
veranda one day and sang gospel
hymns. It was a beautiful and Im
pressive sight, and the Times could
hardly find words strong enough to ex
press its commendation. But, suppose
that some person or newspaper had
charged that President McKinley was
only trying to get a little free advertis
ing, and make himself solid with the
church people? What a storm of Jus
tifiable Indignation would have arisen!
Mr. Bryan simply acted as any other
real man would have done under the
same trying circumstances. Politics
had nothing, and should have nothing,
to do with the matter.
THE BANK OF ENGLAND AND
SILVER
The news printed in The Herald, yes
terday that the directors of the Bank of
England had consented to hold one-fifth
of the bank's reserve in silver is highly
significant, when, its source Is consid
ered.
The LiC-fidon Times was responsible for
the dispatch. The Times, as everybody
knows, is very conservative. It does not
regard euch a step with approval, and
would not print the news unless it had
reason to believe that it was reliable.
The comment of the Times, too, is sig
nificant. It says that the bank's credit
is strong enough to bear the change that
would ensue through carrying thfe in
creased amount of silver. That Is on, a
par with the fact that in this country
the despised "39 cent dollar" Jingles to
the tune of 100 cents in everybody.;
pockets.
If the amount of silver held by the
Bank of England is to be increased ln
a country where gold ie the financial
idol, why is it not reasonable to ask
that the mints of India, a country when:
i silver is th* sole money, be opened bo
LOS ANGELES HERALD t SUNDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 12, 1897
the coinage of the white metal for pri
vate account?
It la well to wait before arriving at a
final conclusion regarding" this latest
piece of news, and present rejoicing is
liable to the frost of prematureness;
but it may not be Ignored as an idle
story yet.
NOVELS AND NOVEL READING
The novel-reading habit has become
epidemical, and the production of that
form of literature one of the startling
phenomena of modern, times. Statistics
of public libraries show what a vast
army is made up of the devotee* of the
novel, as compared with the readers of
other books. The habit grows with
what it feeds on, and the novel-reading
multitude increases day by day. The
moral effect of this species of literary
dissipation can but be pernicious. Of
the thousands of novels published every
year it la rare Indeed to find even one
worth the reading. A great novel is the
work of a great mmd —the production of
genius—and this latter Js a rara avis in
our day, either in Action or philosophy.
As.the English critic, Edmund Goss?,
says (North American Review, August). |
"Many of them (the novels) are inter-
esting and amusing, but the vast ma
jority wholly worthless, mere cumber
itigs of the press l ." And It will appear,
strangely enough, that the "wholly
worthless" are the very ones most pa
tronized by the general reader.
Much has been said and written touch
ing the moral degeneration of the age,
of the easy-fitting fashion of our sense
of duty, whether in our social relations,
as members of the household, or our busi
ness obligations as members of society,
and as workers ln the great hive of trade
and commerce. To these or at least to
some of these charges we must plead
guilty—must each of us exclaim, Mea
culpa!
Are we In error in suggesting that we
may trace a large percentage, at least,
of the cause of our sinning, in these par
ticulars, to the malign influence's of
questionable novels—to the reading of
trashy fiction, the product of question
able if not tainted brains? . To parents,
especially, this question has peculiar
significance. The freedom with which
young girls and boys of Immature minds
and, necesarily, unformed judgments,
are permitted to select from the shelves
of libraries, or from book stalls, such
works as they desire to read is most
mischievous, If not appalling. No book,
particularly no work of fiction, should
be permitted to go Into the hands of a
girl or boy without the inspection and
permission of parent or guardian. The
well-worn couplet of Pope has its lesson
of wisdom today as ln the days of our
forefathers:
" 'Tls education forms the tender mind.
Just as the twig is bent the tree's in
clined."
But there are novels that every one
may read. There are many charming
writers ot Action to select from, and these
should be exhausted before we turn
toward less delectable fields. In fact,there
are novels which every one, young anc
old, should read. Of these we may men
tion the works of Dickens, Thackeray,
Bulwer, Scott, Bronte, Goldsmith, Du
mas, Austen, Edgeworth, Hawthorne,
Cooper and a host of others.
To turn from, these classic authors to
the ephemeral, tawdry, "yellow-back"
trash of the sensational school might well
provoke the question of Hamlet to his
mother:
" Could you on this fair mountain leave
to feed,
And batten on this moor?"
The works of the authors named, and
of those of their school, interest, instruct
and amuse the reader. Their literary
style is admirable. They, as a rule, in
culcate a fine moral lesson. The reader
rises from their final pages with larger
and better views of life and with the
consciousness of increased strength for
the performance of its duties. On the
other hand, it is but rarely the sensa
tional novel leaves the reader a bequest
other than weariness, or a conviction
other than time misspent. It would
seem a moral, cons*rvatlve law that
even the most Inferior mind revolts at
last against the mock heroics, sickly sen
timent and grotesque if not Impossible
scenes, Incidents and conclusions of the
average sensational "popular" novel.
But the reader of such finds that his
sense of delicacy has been blunted, and
although he flings the finished book in
disgust from him, he turns to another
of the same ilk. This Is always true of
familiarity with vice or vicious things—
"We first endure, then pity, then embrace."
There are novels in, the stealthy hands
of maids and matrons today that, under
a veil of florid prose or honeyed lines of
rhyme, only half conceal sentiments
antagonistic to the purity and honesty
of social life and to the continuance of
the divine institution of marriage.
Novels that, to the masculine mind, ad
vance reasons for sedition, anarchy or
communism. Right here lies the danger
of such novels. Under the mask of sen
timent, end ln the holy name of love,
they lnsiduously sap the very founda
tions of the family and, therefore, of the
state —for the family Is the cornerstone
of the state—and the question, presents
itself as to how they shall be excludedi
from every public library ln the land.
The question deserves the serious atten
tion of our municipal authorities.
BOULEVARD ENTRANCE
The boulevard project Is still vexed
by the conflicting desires of residents
of various sections. A new phase to the
discussion was added yesterday by the
filing ot a petition by property owners
of Los Angeles, Main and Spring streets.
This last proposition provides for an
entrance to the adobe route, as recom
mended by the committee of engineers,
from the Plaza, and as a sop to the
East Slders suggests a second entrance,
with the double-headed provision that
Buena Vista street be widened and' the
ronte continued to the East Side park.
Th* boulevard committee would do well
to remember that it stands committed
first for the construction of a boulevard
along the line suggested by the engi
neers (practically the adobe road), and
secondly to give all possible encourage
ment to the Arroyo Seco route as an
Independent enterprise. Any short cut
that has in contemplation two city con
nections with one route and no connec
tion with the other is liable to raise a
whirlwind of discontent and antagonism.
The Herald would be glad to see the
boulevard constructed along the lines
recommended by the engineers; but It
would also, like to see all promoters of
the scheme "tote fair" as to the other
project. If the Arroyo Seco people mean,
business, Buena Vista street Is their
proper entrance to the city.
A New York citizen was paid oft the
other dlay and proceeded to have a
"good time." Presently an ambulance
was called ln his behalf, and a police
surgeon sewed up a cut in the man's
head. Three hours later there was an
other ambulance call. The same doctor
responded, found the same patient, and
sewed up the same cut in. his head. A
short time Intervened, and the same
ambulance and the same doctor found
the same patient, but this time the lat
ter had experienced a compound' frac
ture of the skull. It Is unfortunate that
some men think it necessary to get half
killed before they are willing to admit
that they are having a real good time.
Besides, it is trying to the police sur
geons and ambulance horses.
President McKinley gave Senator
Wellington control of federal patronage
ln the state of Maryland, and through
it ho endeavored to boss his party in
the state, but the late Republican state
convention brought him to grief. Quay,
who Is the recognized patronage dis
penser ln Pennsylvania, seems to have
fared better, and probably from the
fact that the Republicans of that state
have been so long under boss rule that
they are better disciplined and more
submissive than in Maryland, where
for the flrst time that party is ln the
ascendency. How it will turn out with
Boss Piatt in New York and Boss Hanna
in Ohio the future will disclose. The
patronage of their respective states has
been turned over to them by the admin
istration.
A great responsibility Is Involved in
taking up an issue or ever, in, asking an
apparently innocent question, on the
part of a New York newspaper. The
Times of that city, in the goodness of its
heart and for the benefit of an old sub
scriber, recently inquired as to the proper
food for puppy dogs. It has now con
cluded that three out of five inhabitants
of New York city own puppy dogs; that
each inhabitant has a different way of
feeding his puppy or puppies, and that
each and all of them have written a
letter to the editor explaining the pro
cess. It is •well to add that the question
is not yet settled.
Newspaper articles have been fre
quent of late showing how the gold
discoveries in Alaska would help good
times by opening up new enterprises
and industries. Numerous mining
companies have already been formed,
but the ground floor enterprise of them
all is the one that is said to have been
organized by a Denver crook, who Is
getting a gang together for the purpose
of relieving Klondikers of their hard
earned surpluses. His plan has the
advantage of requiring but little cap
ital, except from the victims.
If the law of demand and supply that
our Republican friends are talking so
much about cuts any figure among the
preachers, the Los Angeles pastors
ought to be getting pretty big salaries.
About one a week is being called' else

"What will become of that new Cos

Paderewski has had his hair cut!
Alas, that he should execute the hair
that brought him in the round American

half price or let his hair grow before
coming to this country again.
The leading savings banks of Detroit
have reduced their interest rate from 4
per cent to 3V4 per cent. This action was
undoubtedly called for by the existing
conditions, but It Is hardly an indication
of returning prosperity.
It Is understood that Secretary Sher
man will be presented with a type-writ
ten copy of the speech he is to make in
Ohio for the benefit of Hanna. A little
slip of the tongue might prove costly.
There are some respectable names on

list does not create a feeling of confi

choir invisible," In these piping days.

THE HERALD'S MUSE
Our Castle in Spain
In the glorious time of our youthful prime,
When unknown was the shadow of pain,
And the world was ours with Its birds and
llowers,
We builded. our castle in Spain.
The walls they were Jasper, the towers
were gold,
The windows looked over the sea;
But alas! Those windows are dark and
cold.
And cold and dark shall they be.
No fire is alight on the hearth at night,
No music is heard in the hall,
While the spectral trees as they sway in
the breeze
Are tapping at window and wall;
And bleak desolation is reigning supreme
Where gladness did only abide,
For no one can live in this place it would
seem
Since the lord of the castle has died.
Yes. I died long ago ln the night of my
woo
When they bore a young bride from the
door,
And my body with her's is at rest 'neath
the firs
On the cliff by tbe storm-beaten shore.
But at night when the moon, rising over
the glen,
Looks In at the desolate pane
There are strange sights and sounds, for
we wander again
Through the halls of our castle in Spain.

"Everything goes at the beach," said he
As he gently squeezed her hand.
"Ah, some things never go," said she-
Then she sat alone on the sand.
AND SHE WORE IT
Sighed the soft-eyed maid with the golden

So she packed her grip and left the town—
To the sari sea waves she wandered down
With nothing to wear—and she wore it.

DIED SUDDENLY
Dr. Abel Stevens Succumbs to Heart
Disease
Rev. Abel Stevens, D. D., one of the
most prominent figures in the Methodist
Episcopal church in this country, died
suddenly Friday night at his home in
San Jose. He was with his family and
compla'- dof feeling ill. His wife sum
moned a ysician, but before his ar
rival Stevens died. The cause of his
death was heart disease.
Deceased was a native of Philadelphia
and was 84 years of age at the time of
his death. Although he was a regularly
ordained minister of the gospel, his fame
and his greatest service to the M. E.
church were from his editorial and lit
erary work. He was successively In
editorial charge of the Zion's Herald,
Boston, the Christian Advocate and the
Methodist, New York. He was also the
author of a number of works on re
ligious subjects. Before the civil war he
attained almost national prominence as
an abolitionist, arid) his life was repeat
edly threatened by mobs incited to vio
lence by pro-slavery adherents. Dr.
Stevens had not been actively engaged
In ministerial work for nearly thirty
years, although during his ten years'
residence in California he was well
known among the clergy and laymen of
nearly all denominations.
Besides his wife, three children sur
vive him: O. A. Stevens of the Express
staff of this city, Mrs. I. R. Halstead of
Alhambra and Mrs. M. T. Robinson of
New York. The funeral will take place
Monday at San Jose and the services will
be conducted by Bishop Newman of San
Francisco.
Mr. and Mrs. O. A. Stevens left yester
day morning for San Jose.
LOS ANGELES PIONEERS

arrival, with incidents, events and anec
dotes, humorous or otherwise, of early
settlers and the early settlement. It is
hoped'in this way to bring out a great
deal of interesting unwritten history of
the county and state that Is stored away
in the memory of the old-timers. Ap
plication blanks can be had of the pres
ident, B. S. Eaton, 365 East Second street,

LOST A HAND
A Weil-Known Dairyman's Serious
Accident
Arthur Gllmore, a well known dairy
man, who Is proprietor of La Brea ranch,
about eight miles west of the city,
met with a serious accident yesterday
morning which cost him his left hand.
He was feeding a steam fodder cutter,
which he has on the ranch, early in the
morning, when in some manner his hand
got caught between the knives. In an
instant his four Angers had been torn
off, and the flesh of his palm was shred
ded. As quickly as possible he came
to this city, where Dr. W. C. Harrison
amputated the mangled member.
