"THE LITTLE GIANT"
MAGUIRE'S GREAT SPEECH IN
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.

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
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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.
The Program Will Be Given This
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
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

or not. The club managers do not think
they should be required to pay the ta.x,

not to disappoint the crowd.

MARSHALL'S WILD RIDE

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

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.

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

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

simply goes to show that the fruit-growers
know their business.
One of the advantages of the Nicaragua

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

personnel and material. Is now as near per

nature does not often
call for any snch sarri- jjtß
fice On the contrary JH BffiF
nature calls upon every fS 9jt
mother to carefully pro-
tret herself and in that ■ B
way to protect her baby.
During the critical
period when a woman is looking forward to
motherhood, the best protection she can
give to the tender little life which is depend
ent upon her own, is to fortify herself with
the health - bringing "Favorite Prescrip
tion " prepared by Dr. R. V. Pierce, chief
consulting phvsiclan to the Invalids' Hotel
and Surgical Institute, of Buffalo, N. V.,
and sold t>v all dealers in medicines. *>
All the dangers of motherhood and most
of Its pains and discomforts are entirely
banished by the use of this rare " Prescrip
tion." lit gives elastic strength and true
healthful vitality to the special organs and
nerve - centres involved in motherhood.
This healthful condition in transmitted to
the baby both by the improved quality of
the mother's secreted nourishment and by
the child's increased constitutional vigor.
It is a perfect health protector to them
both. No other medicine was ever devised
by an educated, scientific, physician for the
express purpose of bringing health and
strength to the special feminine organs. No
other preparation ever accomplished this
purpose so scientifically and effectually.
A more particular description of its re
markable properties with a full account of
some surprising cures of female difficulties
is given in one chapter of Dr. Pierces great
thousand-page illustrated book, "The Peo
ple's Common Sense Medical Adviser,"
which is sent free paper-bound for the mere
cost of mailing: si one-cent stamps; or,
cloth-bound, for 31 stamps. Address the
Doctor as above.
