"THE LITTLE GIANT"
MAGUIRE'S GREAT SPEECH IN SAN PRANCISCO AN ENTHUSIASTIC RECEPTION •'The Next Governor of California" on the War and the Opportunity It Has Given "Hannalsm" The enthustnstic welcome given to Con gressman James Q. Magulre on his return from Washington last Tuesday night has already been chronicled by The Herald. His speech before a crowded audience at Metropolitan hall, as reported by the. Ex aminer, will be read with Interest. Mr. Stradley Introduced Congressman Magulre as "the next governor of Califor nia." As "The Little Giant" stepped to the front of the stage the immense audience again rose and cheered with tumultuous en ergy. He bowed and smiled his thanks, and then raised his hand for silence. He began his address at once, saying: Fellow Citizens, Ladies and Gentlemen: This magnificent reception is, I need not say, highly gratifying to me. It Is to me a splendid privilege to be permitted to re turn to my own state of California, and a greater privilege to meet tho enthusiastic approval of my constituents and my fellow citizens at the end of a long career as their servant in the national halls of legisla tion. What I have done has been simply to execute my promises to the people as far in my power lay, and. to be guided in my public acts by those principles of justice and equity which are the fundamental principles of true Democracy—that Democ racy which stands for manhood first and the incidental rights, of manhood after wards, which makes manhood supreme and wealth subordinate. Your enthusiastic reception proves that In the hearts nf all mankind those princi ples are dominant. That'you endorse ihe principles which I hold sacred, and for which I have battled, la to me the highest gratification. We have recently passed through a crisis Involving our country's highest interest. It has absorbed the attention of the masses of the people. In the peril of the nation the common people have stink nil tholr personal interests and considerations They have advanced as a man from the north, the south, the east and the west, with no recognition of party lines nor mem ories of past tllvlslons. Hut all alike they have gathered at their country's call to offer thetr blood upon her altar wherever they might be permitted to follow her flag or uphold her Institutions. The nations of the world have come to know us as n united people, willing tn sacrifice life and treasure to secure others the blessing of that liberty which we enjoy. Ready at any cosS to rescue fellow men from persecution and oppression. This mighty nation rose at and responded to the calls of humanity ond liberty. In Ihe great crisis California has held her place so prouldy and so grand ly that every Callfornlan at the national capital and at the east felt proud of his people and his state. California's Prowess Before the outbreak of the war the honor devolved upon me to give Ihe assurance of what California would do: and California fulfilled every assurance that was given. More than that —our brave boys were among the first to go to the Orient, there to aid that magnificent American—Admiral Dewey. Their Hood now mingles with the soli of the Philippines. On the other side also our boys were at the front. At Salt Lake I met Lieutenant Lyman Welch, whom. I had the honor to name some years ago as a cadet to West Point. At the fierce fight of Santiago he led his brave men up the heights of San Juan in the face of a murderous lire, to complete triumph, falling exhausted within the ramparts of the enemy. His first greeting to me wns: "Are you satisfied with me? Have I pre served the honor of California?" California has not only e-ontrlbuted her eoldlers and sailors, hut she has given to the government the best and most effective ships ln the navy. 1 An American War The Congressman was interrupted by cheers for the Oregon andi her gallant com mander, Captain Clark. He continued: The war was one for humanity and lib erty. Tonight it Is practically over. There has been a disposition on the part of some of our fellow citizens to claim that the credit for the conduct of the war rests with the party ln power. Not so! It was not a Republican war, a Democratic war, nor a Populist war—it was an American war. One of the greatest achievements of that war will be the glory of a re-united American people. The civil war and al! Its memories are burled ln the blood of ex-Federal and ex-Confederate soldiers, commingled on the fields where ex-Con federates and ex-Federuls led the forces ot their common country. We have achieved the great purpose of the war. Now it Is proposeel to organize a peace commission to secure to our gov ernment all information obtainable regard ing the islands whose possession we have acquired. What shall be done with these Islands Immediately I am not prepared lo say. But I say this. They should be disposed of only according to the best interests of our country, limited by the rights of the people of those countries, based on those principles of justice and equity which we assure to ail at home and abroad. Our best interest should be con sidered, and our decision should be reached without the Interference of any foreign or extraneous Influences. The Oportunity of Hannalsm The aggregated and concentrated weallh of the country, represented In Its politi cal energy hy what has come to be known as "Hannalsm," has taken advantage of the excitement created hy the war to make Inroads on popular rights. An Incident of that was shown during the last days of congress, when a commission was appoint ed to formulate a plan to refund the Cen tral Pacific railroad debt. Senator Morgan, who formerly aided US greatly In our anti-rallroad fight,, said to day In an Interview that the government's position in reference to the railroad debt Is now no better than It ever wag. His measure in the senate provided for the creation nf a commission to do but one thing—to provide for a plan to refund the Central Pacific debt. The Union Pacific debt was not handled In lhat way. Fore closure proceedings were Instituted, and when the time came for the sale, the gov ernment of the United States, standing hy th* Thurman act, forced the Issue. The Union Pacific reorganizes promptly made a bid for the payment of the entire debt. If the government of the United Stntes had taken the same course with the Central Pa cific, Huntington and his associates would have paid the debt; or the Union Pacific people would have established n rival lint to this state; or, thirdly, the government itself would hnvo taken the road. Senator Morgan says the government's position has been Improved. In what re spect? The debt was due; a large propor tion of It was overdue; the attorney general of the United States was preparing fore ' closure papers. On March 10th and March 28th he wrote he was preparing his fore closure papers and Intended to proceed. The measure to which Morgan refers stopped all foreclosure proceedings. It gave Huntington and his associates another year ln which to endeavor to get another period or refunding and a lower rate of Interest. Suppose Huntington, at the end of tha Urns, refuses to pay the debt? How, then, Is Uncle Sam any better off than before the railroad company was given the year? A Vicious Measure When Mr. Huntington was interviewed by the Examiner after tho passage of the bill which gave him a year's more time, he said, when asked If he intended to pay the debt at the end of the year: "Oh, many things may happen lrt a year. I have seen many things happen In that time." The bin which gave Huntington a year's more time Is a vicious measure. It is filled with dangers to the Interests of the Pacific coast. The extension of the monop oly for ninety years, or for ten years, after the debt should have been paid. Is an out rage on the people of this coast. The ex pectation of Huntington is this. If the oxcltement of the war should cause the people of the state to forget their Internal troubles, and support at the polls those who favored this, railroad measure—and op pose those who, in congress, fought Hunt ington, then he will return to Washington with the statement that the people of California have Indorsed the refunding bill. Faithless Republicans The speaker highly commended Nevada's Silver Republican representative, Frank G. Newlands, for the gallant fight mad* by him In assisting the Californlans against Huntington and his scheme. He then continued: They never could have passed the bill If our Republicans from California had re mained faithful of fair promises. Repre sentative Barham of California, for some reason which he will doubtless explain, changed his mind on refunding and voted for the measure. He must, answer to his constituents of the First district. In the Fifty-third, Fifty-fourth and Fifty-fifth congresses resolutions of the legislature of California and of all our public bodies were read upon the floor of the house and urged as arguments against refunding.' In the Fifty-fourth congress Mr. Barham himself read the resolution of the legislature of California, declaring against any refunding or extension of the Pacific railroad debts. He said he stood by that resolution. Let him explain why he did not stand by It ln the Fifty-fifth. The measure could never have succeeded but for the weakness of Mr. Barham and the weakness of Mr. Loud. Mr .Loud did not*vote for the bill. He was paired, but he was paired with a Democrat, and he could not have been pnlred but as a supporter of the bill, for there was but one Democrat ln the house—Bankhead of Alabama—who was for the bill. Mr. Loud will doubtless explain his action. In the Fifty-fifth congress today, and un til the end of that congress shall come, there stand against the extension ot the time of the payment of the Central Pacific debt, or against lowering the rate of Inter est, the solid phalanx of the Democrats, the Populists and the Silver Republicans. "Equal Rights to All" There Is no safety for American Institu tions except ln putting Into practical oper ation tha principles of equal rights to all and special privileges to none. A voice—How would you stop that? By stopping special privileges. Special privileges rest upon statutes. Eliminate such statutes and thus remove the special privilege. The Democratic theory of gov ernment holds that It is the first and high est principle of government lo prevent the Interference of one citizen with the rights of another. Special privilege Is an inter ference. What must be done in the mat ter of eliminating railroad monopoly, must be done In the matter of all monopolies. "Equal rights to nil, special privileges to none," must be the watchword of all par ties which stand for the right of the people against the domination of Mammon. THOMPSON-LEWIS FIGHT The Program Will Be Given This Evening A lively bout Is promised at the Los An •geles Athletic club this evening. Bob Thompson and Ben Lewis, the colored light weights, are matched for a fifteen round go at catch weights. This will be the principal bout of the evening, and as both men are well matched and clever, as good a fight as has' been witnessed here Cor many months Is anticipated!. Billy De Coursey and "Kid" Chambers, of Chicago,* are down for a ten-round go. Young Thurman was to have met De-Coursey. but Cor some reason he backed out, and Cham bers was substituted. The latter hael a. fight at Albuquerque a short time ago, and gave a good account of himself there. Billy Gallagher and Joe Cotton will spar a four-round exhibition. The program will start about 9 o'clock. John Brink will be the referee. A rumor was circulated yesterday that there might be no flghi. because an Inter nal revenue tax had been demanded of the club. If this tax was found to be impera tive the tight would be called off. Thts is an erroneous report. The fight will he given whether the club has to pay the tax or not. The club managers do not think they should be required to pay the ta.x, but If necessary they will do so, in order not to disappoint the crowd. HARES AND HOUNDS Drawing for Sunday's Coursing at Agricultural Park The coursing at Agricultural park Sun day consists of a thirty-two dog open stake, and the drawing took place last evening at No. 143 South Broadway, in the presence of the usual large crowd of interested dog owners.

WANTS HER MONET BACK Mrs. Feldman Thinks Her Husband Jobbed Her Mrs. Frank Feielman, accompanied By her sister, Mrs. Placlda Yandlnls, called at the police station yesterday to relate a tale of woe.

They owned considerable real estate In the city, and he sucoeededi In Inducing her to deed her interest In this property over to him. He soon after sold tha property and realized fully $10,000 from it. Without a word of explanation he left the city. She thinks he has gone to San Francisco. Mrs. Feldman desires that her erring spouse be brought home and compelled Co disgorge her share of the money, iris bad enough to lose a hUßbanel, she reasons, without having to be robbed, too. Excursion Rates to Cincinnati, Ohio Round-trip $74.00. Tickets on sale Aug. 31st, Sept. 1 and 2. See about It at Santa Fe office, 200 S. Spring street LOS ANGELES HERALDi FRIDAY MORNING, AUGUST 12, tm MARSHALL'S WILD RIDE THE ENGINE OF THE LAW WAS PUFFED OUT Good Dividends for Apricots—The Linnets and the Peaches—Water and Its Level PASADENA (office of The Herald, 58 E. Colorado street), Aug. 11.—Marshal Lacey had a wild) chase this evening after a drunken man, a chuae that was full of ex citement and proved the marshal's right to be classed among the fastest bicycllst3 of the age. Lacey was coming down Ma rengo avenue on his wheel ut about 8 o'clock, bound for his office. Near the corner of the avenue and Ramona-street a man in a single buggy was stalled in the gutter. "Say," he called, "do you think I can turn around here?" "Well, I could ln your place," Lacey replied. So tho man wheeled about, and, cutting his horse with the whip, bolted down Marengo avenue at breakneck speed, with the marshull hard after him. The race was on In earnest when tho runaway turned Into Colorado street, and narrowly escaped collision with a party of boys on bicycles. Marshal La cey was now puffing and blowing ln an en deavor to catch the man and arrest him for reckless driving. At the corner of Oakland avenue tiho drunken man stopped and turned about. This gave Lacey a chance to catch up. "Stop. I want you," he yelled; but tho drunken man had begun to smell trouble, and, without replying, again started up at a John Gilpin gait. Marshal Lacey, now Joined by other wheelmen, again pursued. Down Marengo to Califor nia street, west on California street, the cavalcade swept. For a time the boys were able to keep up with the rig, whose driver was urging his steed to its utmost. THe horse soon left the less speedy cyclists In the rear, but two of the boys kept the pace to the California street hill. Here they dropped the gamo, and, turning back, their ears were presently smitten with the puff, puff of the engine of the law. This gave the man In the buggy a chance to escape, which he improved. Then the cyclists be gan a search alung the streetis ln the neigh borhood, and finally located, the buggy by means of a la.nU.rn, which was seen flick ering about the barn of Rev. P. S. Farrel ly, the Roman Catholic priest, on South Pasadena avenue. Father Farrelly was away, but Marshal Lacey founH a visiting priest and another man strolling about the yard. They were profuse ln their assur ances that no such person- as described had entered the yard. "But there's the man now," said Marshal Lacey, observ ing a man with a buggy standing near by. He was doubly assured of the runaway's Identity by tho presence of a small dog which was in the buggy during the wild rido. Straightway the marshal made a dive for the man and buggy. Finally the priest's assurances of the drunken man's good character and Intentions prevailed upon the marshal, and he compromised the matter by accepting a promise from the priest that Pat Corbett, the man of the ride, would call at police hendquarte-rs to morrow. It was explained that Pnt had gotten under the influence of liquor while his employer. Rev. Farrelly, was absent, and had taken the horse a net buggy with out permission. Pat had not a word to say from first to lust. The Fruit Market Tomorrow afternoon the members of the Pasadena Deciduous Fruit, Exchange will meet at 2 o'clock at their office on South Broadway, and will divide up about 18,000, which they have re-celveel from sales of dried apricots. The price received: for the fifty tons sold was S',4 andi 9 cents per pound from a San Francisco firm, which ships the fruit to France. Tho members of the exchange, who are from Pasadena, North Pasadena, La Canyada and La.man da Park, are much pl»a-sod with the co-op erative plan. The outlook for peaches which have Just come In Is not so good as the apricot. The linnets are very plenti ful this year, and in some orchards as much as a ton of fruit a day is eaten or renrtie-red useless hy them. The dried peaches are worth mow about 6 cents per pound. La Canyada Fruit Growers' As sociation has sold already twenty-five tons of green Kelsey plums at the excellent price of $21 per ton. They will he shipped east. Tho exchange expects to handle about four carloads of prunes. The best grades are quoted at 4% cents per pound, but tho average price per grade is about 3 cents a pound-. The- lemon growers are also enjoying gooit returns for their la bors. They are getting from $2.25 to $2.55 a box. Tho association, was enable-d tn pay off a $500 debt with the returns from lemon sales. Water Controversy The controversy between Weymouth and Plnney and the directors of the Luke Vine yard Land and Water company over the matter of the hitter's well and reservoir is still on, and arouses much interest about town. Weymouth and Plnney Insist that they can prove that the well is being pumped full of water that leaks from a crack in the reservoir, and that the water is being pumped back Into the reservoir. The water company has not accepted their wager of $100 that they can substantiate. George Firman, engineer ut the well pump, scouts the statement of the two men. He says that such a situation Is Impossible. The water in the well when the pumping natl been suspended for one week, rose to only within 148 feet of the surfec of the ground. Now the reservoir Is twenty seven feet higher than the well. With no water being pumped from the well, says Firmun, the leak from the reservoir would fill it to the surface, and even then there would be twenty-seven feet to spare. This is reasoning upon the ground that water must rise to its own level. Firman says also that forty miner's Inches of water a mlnuto Is being handled by the pump. Brevities The committee of citizens having In charge the framing of a new city charter set tonight for a meeting, but only Com mitteemen Kenaghan and Reynolds were on hand. The committee, therefore ad journed until Monday night, when It is hoped to have Attorneys W. S. Wright and W. K. Arthur, with whom the committee wishes to discuss several points of law appertaining to the charter. Traffic Manager Settley of the Mount Lowe road reports that dozens of Profes sor Lewis Swift's comet were seen last night on the mountains. Thousands would have been seen had it not been for the clouds which obscured them. The funeral ef Mrs. L. E. Worrell will be held tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock from the parlors of Reynolds & Van Nuys, and Interment will bo made in Mountain View cemetery. Arthur Hepburn, the young man wanted at Randsburg for obtaining money under false pretenses, today saw influential friends, who helped him out of his diffi culty. Hepburn borrowed $70 and was unable to pay at the time he had promised. The city council met again today as a board of equalization and denied petitions from O. E. Hutchins for rebates on assess ments upon three separate pieces of prop erty. The Red Cross society shipped two supply boxes to Company I today. The society holds a business meeting tomorrow after noon. I The Amerlcus club will meet Monday I night ln Its new quarters for the transac tion of business, and a full attendance Is desired. Bertha Carnelllson, aged 12 years, broke her left arm yesterday afternoon ln a fall from an oak tree on Lake avenue. The thermometer registered about 100 ln the Bhade today. Neal Traylor has returned from Cata lina. He had a rifle stolen from his tent w'hlle camping at Avalon. CRAIL INTERFERED And, as Generally Happens, Got Into Hot Water William Crall was arrested yesterdtay by Deputy Constable Mugneml on a warrant charging him witfi disturbing the peace of Mrs. Ellzubeth flurrlss of Olive street. Crall was released on his own recognizance by Justice Morrlßon, and ordered to appear for trial today. According lo the statements of Crall he occupies the adjoining house to the Bur rlss family. The latter have frequent quarrels, and yesterday Mrs. Burrlss asked him to come over and speak to Mr. Burrlss, who had abused her. Crall entered the yard, but Burrlss closed the door, and through the shutter of the window called Crall a dirty cur and ordered him out of the yard. Crall dared him to come out and light like a man. Crall admits he might have used rather strong language In addressing Burrlss. To his surprise Mrs. Burrlss swore to the complaint, charging Crall with having used bad language. Bur rlss was recently injured by falling off n ladder while painting an electric pole on San Fernando street. Our Fruit Abroad Tho credit won by California dried fruit at the exposition held In Hamburg has done much, it is said, to bring that com modity into high repute. As a rule the Germans, from Interested motives of their own, say nothing good of American food imports; and when, as In this cnse, they depart from their prejudices and Invest our dried fruit with a prize, the presump tion follows that the article has superior merit. Dried apricots are finding special favor in Germany, and one locality ln this state, tfut of several, reports a substantial in crease of shipments. Other European countries, notably Austro-Hungnry, Den mark, the Scandinavian kingdoms and Russia, ought to be as promising fields of exploitation not only for dried apricots but for similar cheap, and in those coun tries, unfamiliar products. The main thing Is to Introduce them In a satisfactory way. Evidently the exposition plan Is a good one, and that It will be followed Up for all It Is worth at the Paris exposition simply goes to show that the fruit-growers know their business. One of the advantages of the Nicaragua canal will be the stimulus It will give the dried fruit trade with Europe, through cheapening the product to the consumer. Much has been said of the influence of the canal in opening a quick and Inexpensive route for California fresh fruit to the east ern market, but the aid given to the dried Irait exporter is bound to be as great. In the meantime, however, nothing will pay better than industrious drumming both at home and abroad —San Francisco Chron icle. England's Opinion of Us Th admiration and Interest manifested ln the destruction of Admiral Cervera's fleet are indescribable. Our naval ofTlcers look upon it as a splendid achievement, re flecting Inexpressible credit on the officers and men of the blockading squadron. Such is the crushing disparity between the naval capacity of the two nations that It Is be lieved that If the Spanish fleet had been manned and fought by American ofTlcers and crews, and Admiral Sampson's squad ron led by Admiral Cervera and his officers and men, the loss of life on the American side might perhaps have been greater, but the result would have been the same. If proof were needed it is supplied by the gal lant action of the Gloucester, commanded by Lieutenant Walnwright. Walnwrlght's failure to observe his admiral's signal is Nelsonic. The opinion of the professional experts coincides with that of hard-worked lieutenants of the channel squadron, ft Is that the American navy, both as regards personnel and material. Is now as near per fection as skill, courage, practice and dis cipline can attain, and Is quite as good as ■the best in the world.— London letter to Harper's Weekly. Wyoming Republicans DOT'GLASS.
