TEN DOLLARS REWARD The above reward will be paid for the arrest and conviction of any person caught stealing the Herald after delivery to a patron. SATURDAY, JANUARY »». A RESOLUTION THAT DIED Some son of Belial (probably a paid agent of the San Francisco Call) slipped Into the room of the Democratic county central committee in advance ot Its ses sion yesterday afternoon and left a type-written, unsigned paper on the chairman's desk. Then he sneaked away again and no man knoweth whence »te came or whither he went. A friend of The Herald brought a copy Df this precious document to us. and we take the first opportunity to submit it In its entirety: Resolved. That the Democratic coun ty central committee of Los Angeles county sympathizes with the people of Los Angeles eily In their efforts to have the municipality of Los Angeles own and Control its water supply: congrat ulate the people of said city upon the course of the San Francisco Call and the Dos Angeles Record, In taking up the cause of the people In their con test with corporate monopoly and city Officials false to their pledges. Resolved, further, that we condemn the course of the Los Angeles Times, Herald and Express in espousing the cause of the water company, and op posing the interests of the people. The Los Angeles Herald is no longer a Democratic paper. Its editor is a Re - publican, and the paper controlled by plutocrats for the benefit of a trio of grasping nionopoUes, is no longer enti tled to the support or patronage of any Democrat. There was no acknowledged parent age to this poor little creature, and it must therefore be denominated a foundling, with presumptive evidence that it was also a bastard. Another sad feature in connection with it was that It died a-bornln'. No member of the committee cared to offer the resolution for adoption, and It was allowed to rest in peace, where It had fallen. Under these appealing cir cumstances, The Herald gives it decent burial. It Is hardly worth while to review or categorically deny the false and sneak- ] lng assertions of the deceased resolu tion. Certainly if the record which The Herald has made in its columns from day to day is not a sufficient refutation of them, so far as this paper is con cerned, then it would be useless to at tempt anything further in that line. The Herald, first, last and all the time, has sympathized with the people of Los An geles in their efforts to have the mu nicipality own and control its water sup ply. There is a difference, however, be tween methods of expressing sympathy. We did not commit ours to an un signed paper and sneak away and leave It to an awful fate, but we published It over and over again, in good plain type, in these columns. And here it is again: The Herald is desirous Hint tile city shall possess its own system of water- Works; that it shall acquire such a sys tem at the earlieMl date possible, and at the lowest price possible. Now, if that is not a square rind un equivocal declaration of principles, what Is it? There may lie some difference be tween The Herald and other advocates of municipal ownership as to the court* of procedure, but nli are seeking the same identical result. We have advised a conservative, a cautious, a judicial course, which we believe will be the most certain to effect the desired enrj. We have discountenanced those whom We believed were seeking to create pub lic excitement for ulterior purposes, and we have urged the council to refrain from hasty and 111-advlsi d action in ad vance of the technical fulfillment of the contract, lest the city be worsted in the first passage-at-arms. Whether this advice is good or not, let the event determine. We are willing to be judged by the record as mad.. We defy anybody to produce a word, a clause or a sentence, from the columns of The Herald which lias discouraged or combated the idea of municipal owner ship of the water plant. Now, a few words as to this matter of endorsement or repudiation byparty organizations. The Herald is not and does not aspire to be tin "organ." It is Just a straight-out Democratic paper, appealing to first principles arid strik ing out for clean politics and go<„] jiov srnrnent. We have not asked any con tribution from a Democratic committee, city, county, state or national, nor do we expect to ask such a contribution. We did not apply to any committee for per mission to publish this paper, nor do we ask any committee for endorsement. The Herald does not expect to manipu late Democratic primaries, nor put up slates, nor sit in Democratic conven tions. It has no appeals to make except tn the public whom it serves and from whom It derives Its support. This sup port it understands Is dependent entire ly upon its own energy and enterprise; upon its straightforwardness in dealing with the public; upon its ability to fur nish a good newspaper. This being ac complished, it would be the sheerest folly for all the Democratic organiza tions in the country to try to read it out of the party. The Herald could go on advocating Democratic doctrine and clean politics in spite of them all. It reaches beyond cliques and rings and committees and conventions and goes directly to the people. In other words, a good newspaper is its own initiative and referendum. For the sake of the local Democratic party, and for the hope Of success in ap proaching elections (which now seems most promising and in which The Her ald expects to assist), we would regret to see any Democratic organization do such a ridiculous, such a futile, such an outrageously asinine thing as is outlined in the above quoted resolution. To try to discredit The Herald as a Democratic paper would be folly enough, but to give en dorsement to a Republican newspaper of San Francisco, conducted by an ex- Kepublican boss, a millionaire, who failed to champion the rights of the peo ple of his own city in their recent water contest, and who is now engaged in championing the cause of a Dos Angeles Republican boodler, would be a climax of the ridiculous. It would make such organization and such action unjust and a by-word from one end of the state to the other. It's a good thing for the Democratic party in this neck of the woods that the aforesaid resolution of the aforesaid son of Belial Is now respectfully interred. THE BACON AMENDMENT The two questions which should have greatest weight in determining action upon the treaty of annexation are not SO much as to be considered. These are the willingness of a majority of the people of the islands to have them an nexed, and the desire of the people of this country to acquire them. The wishes of neither people have been con sulted. It is true that the people of the United States are supposed to speak through their representatives in the senate, yet, as a matter of fact, the question has never been made an issue, nor has any single senator ever been chosen with reference to his attitude on the question. Consideration of the mat ter is behind closed doors, and the peo ple of the country are as much in the dark with reference to the influences at work as are the natives of Hawaii touching the intrigues of the Dole gov ernment, in the selection of which they had no voice. This journal will not un dertake to say how the voters of tht I'nited States would divide upon the question, were it submitted to a popular vote: but it feels that the proposed step is of sufficient Importance to the coun try, in its probable and possible conse quences, to warrant such a reference. It is notorious that the preponderance of sentiment in the islands is averse to annexation, and that but a handful of alien conspirators is liehiHd the scheme. The fact has Inspired Senator Bacon of Georgia to offer an amendment to the treaty, providing that the question shall be submitted to a popular vote of the native Hawallans, excluding all others from a voice in the decision. amendment will, of course, not be ac cepted by the administration leaders in the senate, since it would delay action for a year and result in the ultimate col lapse of the whole scheme. Yet their re jection of so fair a proposition is tanta mount to a confession of all that has been charged by the opposition regard ing the almost unanimous opposition of tin- Hawaiian* to annexation. The Ba con amendment will, at all events, serve as an additional stumbling block in the pathway of the annexationists. THE GRAND JURY SYSTEM The grand jury system is being made the object of some very vigorous at tacks. Judges Oster and Campbell, sit ting at Riverside this week, declared in the plainest terms that the system has outgrown its usefulness, and. as ai pres ent conducted, is an expensive, super fluous Incumbrance, They asserted that there was no part of its duties that could not be as well performed by the office of the district attorney, with the advice and assistance of the sitting magistrates. The last grand jury at Riverside, which returned but one In dictment, at an expense to the taxpay ers of over $1700, was cited in illustration and as a justification of the strictures passed by the judges. There is, no doubt, a great deal to }be said against the grand jury system, jas at present conducted. There are many ways by which it can be trans fi l ined Into an abuse, instead of being an instrument of justice. But have we ] anything better to take its place? The ! district attorney's office has been sug gi -led. Unquestionably, the district at torney's office could and would perform the work now delegated to the grand Jury, under favorable circumstances. j Th - first essential, in case the ex change w. re Beriously contemplated, would be a district attorney who could be depended upon to do his duty with out fear or favor—an Official in whom the people could place implicit confi dence. In Los Angeles county, for in- I stance, if it came to a choice between j a grand jury and a district attorney, un j der the present conditions, the people LOS ANGELES HERALD t SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 27, 1898 would, with one voice, say: "Give us the 'grand jury!" It was the grand jury that took legal steps In the board of education scandal, and that body assisted'materlally In ex piring the corruption that had crept Into the board. That the prosecution did not succeed in the case of Webb forms no Impeachment of the grand jury sys tem. The people must take as few chances as possible if the ends of justice are to be served. If any reasonable guaranty can be had as to the district attorney's office, it might be well to consider the abolishment of the grand jury system. Under the present conditions, it would be a very dangerous experiment. THE NEW POMOLOGICAL REPORT In another place will be found a let ter from the secretary of agriculture to the president of the Southern California Pomological society confirming the de cision of the United States department of agriculture to prepare and publish a special fruit bulletin for California. This decision was come to by Secretary Wilson because of the glaring defects of the report on fruit conditions in the United States as to fruits in California. Our fruit interests are to be congratu lated on the proposed new bulletin. Cal ifornia owes a debt of gratitude for the prompt action and strong stand of Sen ator White and to the officers of local fruit organizations in demanding a cor rection of the injustice done to Califor nia by the report, which, amongst other things, said that California grew no figs. We hope that the special Califor nia bulletin will be worth a fig or two. AN ABSURD THREAT In the house on Thursday Mr. Ding ley declared that if the hours of labor in the several states are not equalized, the labor organizations will compel an amendment to the constitution to per mit congress to equalize them. This sentiment is but an echo of the recent declaration of the Boston Globe to the same effect. Unable longer to cope suc cessfully with the industries of the south, even with the help of tariff duties fixed by the mill men themselves, they propose now to invoke the help of all the people of the country in prevent ing competition by statute. But Mr. Dingley's implied threat will frighten no one. Organized labor in this country is not lying awake o'nights devising means for succoring New England mill men. Mr. Dingley, In the course of his remarks, gave an excellent reason why organized labor should not at this mo ment be in sympathy with them, for he admitted that the mills started up last summer with eight months' supply of the finished product on hand, pre ferring to force a strike in midwinter to remaining closed when there was no de mand for a resumption. But his utter ances are useful as indicating the drift of sentiment in New England touching the aggressiveness of southern competi tors. In its narrowness and intolerance it has a decidedly colonial flavor. THE SCHOOL FIRE DRILL The value and efficacy of the school fire drill was displayed with most grat ifying results at the burning of the Pico Heights school building Thursday. There were several hundred pupils and teachers in the building, which was emptied in three-quarters of a minute without the slightest accident or panic. Twelve-year-old Joseph Szartlnsky. who first saw the flames and who gave warning to his teacher without alarming the rest of the pupils, should have a vote of thanks from the school board md from the community generally for his remarkable presence of mind. The staff of teachers, too, from the principal down, showed that they were compe tent in every way to deal with the ter rible emergency of fire. The Herald prints in another column a call for a meeting of the Democratic state central committee in San Fran cisco January L'i'th. This meeting is for the purpose of considering Important parly business in connection with the new primary law and the more thorough organization of the party throughout the state. At the same time there will also be a conference of the leading Dem ocrats of the state, and a general can vass of men and measures for the com ing campaign. This is an Important political year and work should begin early. It is especially important in looking after the preliminaries that the provisions and operation of the new pri mary law shall be generally and thor oughly understood. It is a rather difficult matter for a de liberative body like the United States senate to decide as to the fitness of a man to sit upon the bench of the su preme court. In the case of McKenna there was no lack of parole testimony on both sides of the proposition. It could not well do otherwise than con firm, as it did yesterday, without divi sion. There would seem to be no ex cuse, however, for a president to select a man for such an exalted place about whose professional qualifications there could be the shadow of a doubt. A very dangerous practice seems to have grown up under Mr. Kckcls's ad ministration, and his successor has felt impe lled to issue an order to government bank examiners prohibiting them from | making private' examinations of bank ing institutions. We should dislike to ! believe that a government examiner would look upon suedi employment as a bribe, but human nature is weak, and it should not be subjec ted to any sue h I temptation. The examiners are pretty | well paid, and should be satisfied to j serve one master ut a time. The vote on the Teller resolution has gone over until Thursday, at the in stance ot members of the opposition, who will need more time than they have demanded to fortify themselves against a measure which, more than twenty years ago, received the approval of both houses of a Republican congress, the present chief executive casting his vote In the affirmative. The principle In volved has not changed. It is the same old debt and the same old dollar, but, unfortunately. It Is not the same' old party. San Diego appears to have lost the considerable premium, estimated at about $13,000, which its citizens might have obtained on the sale of the recent issue of $260,000 city 4% per cent refund ing bonds, lately sold for the nominal premium of $500. The case Is on in structive lesson In municipal misman agement, the particulars of which may be found in the Investor columns of this Issue. In organizing the country for the im portant campaign of next fall, a cam paign that promises to become historical on account of the great issues involved, Senator White has assumed a tremen dous responsibility, entailing tireless ! and ceasless labor. But The Herald knows of no man In the country In ev ery way so well equipped for the duty. Our readers will be somewhat sur prised at the intimation, conveyed by a Washington dispatch this morning, that because a more vigorous foreign policy is demanded. Lord Salisbury is to yield that portfolio to a younger man at an early day. It will be quite safe to dis count liberally the correctness of this news. The courtesies of the Golden Jubilee Mining Fair, which opens at San Fran cisco January 29th. continuing until March sth, are acknowledged by The Herald. Very extensive preparations are being made for the fair, which will undoubtedly be a credit to California, and attract a large number of visitors. « . » At the beginning of his speech Sena ton Davis asked that he be not inter rupted by questions during its delivery. Otherwise it would have been of five in stead of four days' duration. The speaker never falls to recognize Mr. Dingley when he periodically arises on a question of personal privilege to explain why the revenues do not equal the expenditures. Chicago has convicted a murderer within two months of the commission of the crime. The fact is really more sen sational than was the tragedy. Minister Barrett and a gunboat have brought the Siamese government to terms. Who dare assert our diplomatic service is not improving? Russia, It appears from our dispatches this morning, also has a robust deficit, an apparently inseparable accompani ment of the gold standard. Has not the contract labor law been violated in the importation from Ha waii of a party by the name of Dole? THE FAITHFUL COUPLE J'You are still a youth to me. John, You ar*e .still my bonny beau: The same as when we plighted troth, Full fifty years ago! The same as when our wedding bells Rang out so glad and gay." And here the good wife breathed a sigh, And shook her locks of gray. "It seemeth strange to me. John, Who married you for aye. Who hold the ring you gave me as The apple of my eye. To see the youngsters ne'er content To give their hearts and hands, As we did In the good old times, Without the scrip and lands! "1 didn't bring you much. John, And you had little more; But we had health in place of Wealth, And plenteous love In store. And through the joy and strife, dear. We each one did our part: And now we've one another still, As we had at the start. "The times have sadly changed, John, Since you and I were young: The marriage tie is lightly held And many a heart is wrung. And yet you're young to me. John, And still my bonny beau: The same as when we plighted troth, Full fifty years ago!" —Mi s. M. A. Kidder In New York Ledger. The Negro's Real Friend The negro has no real frleds at the north. We tire willing to believe, for we see something of it here, that the negro does not show to advantage after crossing the Potomac and the Ohio, It seems to us t hot the further he wanders from tlie south the more bumptious and offensive he be comes, liut this is largely due to the fact that he realizes the hostile environment in which he is placed, and in his foolish way resents it. The fact remains, how ever. The negro's best and most genuine friends are at the south, and it is among the former slaveholding classes that he hr.il? the truest esteem and the most help ful friendship.—Washington Post. Leaving Farms for Cities The tendency of younK men born anil reared on farms to leave the country for towns an<l cities is certainly an unhealthy movement in a large sense and unprofitable to many of those who embark in it. Prop erly and steadily followed, there is no safer business than farming, nor any more certain to yield satisfactory results. In very many instances those who abandon it for city life live to regret the change. The farnr rs' Institutes and farmers themselves ought to be abie to develop a higher In terest in the occupation and more of a cer tain sort of esprit dtt corps among those who follow it.—lndianapolis Journal. Books and Their Uses "What a beautiful library you have!" ex claimed the visitor. "You can never be onely with so many beautiful and expen sive books about you." "Oh," replied Mrs. Cumrox, complacent y. "you don't see all that we have." "Indeed!" "Yes, Wfl have any number of books vith paper backs that we read."—Wash ington Star. Eclipsed China's emperor, the son of heaven, bows low to the kaiser, Who rles by divine right.

The Doctors Were Right John Bronnan's neck was broken a year ago at Fort Hamilton by a fall. Doctors said lie must tile. He did. He died yester day from heart disease.—New York Press. Governor Stephens of Missouri is a Meth odist, and has recently met with a storm of condemnation from the ministers of his denomination because he permits dancing at his receptions. THE PUBLIC PULSE (The Herald under this heading prints communications, but does not assume re sponsibility for the sentiments expressed. Correspondents are requested to cultivate brevity as far as Is consistent with the proper expression of their views.) In favor of a Glean-Up To the Editor of the Los Angeles Herald: In the name of decency, allow me to thank you for the article In your editorial page of some days ago in ref erence to the class of men who pollute Democratic politics hereabouts. You are right when you say the disreputable push people have time and again put up weak candidates to be knocked down, and In obedience to the Republican man agement. They have ulso taken care to nominate men acceptable to the South ern Pacific and other corporations. In fact, it is notorious that they are ready to sell out to anybody. Is It possible for the Democracy to even have a shadow of hope so long as this condition re mains? But the county convention is not their last resort. They aspire to the state conventions, and, with a few dol lars and free railroad passes, are sent north to continue their course of dirty work, herded as though so many ani mals, and all of this in broad, open defi ance of the public. These men are se lected by their bosses because they can be handled and care nothing whatever for the party or its principles. Oh. for the time when these characters shall be thrown bodily from the convention hall which they pollute! Hundreds there are, If not thousands, of respect able Democrats—not to mention that great class of independent voters —who very properly decline to affiliate during a campaign or at the ballot box with the party whose grand principles are thus so foully perverted. It will not avail to have some good men fight their way to the state conventions and to have decency represented in part in the nom inations. There must be a universal cleaning-out. Nor should the respect able Democracy permit any interference with drastic remedies, even if the cry is made that the disturbers will go over to the Republican party. That would be too much of a blessing; and will not come. I fear, as the push people are of far more use to that organization as marplots Jn the Democratic ranks than they would be elsewhere. You are on the right track, and all true Democrats of Los Angeles county will indulge the hope that you will cease only after the party has been relieved of such incumbrances. Yours, Seventh Ward, Jan. 21, 1898. T. A Postal Pointer As yet the postal authorities in what is now termed Greater New York have not been officially notified of the make-up of the new municipality. Therefore It would be well for correspondents who desire speedy and sure delivery of communica tions intended for residents in any of the subdivisions thereof to continue to ad dress such communications according to the practice in vogue before consolidation. By adhering to this procedure until further notice much of the trouble and annoyance to which the postoflice authorities are now subjected, either through mischievousicss or ignorance, on the part of many who persist in addressing correspondence in various ambiguous ways, will be partially if not entirely obviated.—Hradstreet's. Gives Up in Deep Disgust During each month of the year we fur nish our readers with Republican prosper ity supplements—no more such supple ments will be sent out with our paper. The supplements are a fraud, a delusion and a lie. We are ashamed of them, sick and sore at ttie idea of sending out such "prosperity supplements" when at the same time we are unable to collect enough money to meet our bills after having made them.—Petersburg, Ind.. News. Verdant or Jocose Canadian The mayor of Louisville. Ky., has re ceived a letter from a resident ot Canada asking for a position under the city gov ernment. He had heard that the mayor was making changes in the departments. The curious phase of this incident Is that a single foreigner lived who supposed there were enough offices to go around in America, with a few left over for the citi zens of other countries. —Springfield, Mass..

Conn., Palladium. Prevention Better Than Exposure No harm to any deserving pensioner could come from publication of the pension roll, but publication should also be made, at or near the home of each applicant for a pension before it is granted.
