EXPOSIN& A: CRo¥>y:';
The people of California are too busily
engaged each in his own work to pay
much attention to the vanity or the 'boast-.,
ing of other's. Shooting folly as it flies is
an occupation in which no one employs
much of his time or energy. It is only
'when the vanity or the .boasting becomes
a public, nuisance that we turn toit; and
take a pot-shot at it in muchthe same
•spirit that we throw a brick at some oyer
: noisy, tomcat whose ; caterwauiings of lie
fianceaisturb the neighborhood. : :
The Ekaminer of yesterday gave us an
example of that boasting, which is a pub
lic nuisahcei Spreading somethirig like a
peacock tail, gaudy with a thousand fakes,
spotted with scandals, stained witti inde
cencies, and freaked like a monkey gar
mented for a sidesuow, it uttered a raucous
roar of self-glorincation as nerverwepring
as. the screech of the whang-doodle in the
mountains of Hepsidam. Such vanity is
pernicious to the people Who may be
deceived by it, arid therefore wiiile it may
riot be advisable to kill the thing, for
there must be a newsjpaper ipr fools in
this as in other toirns, it is imperative tp
shoot the stolen feathera off and show the
true nature of the bird; ; ' ;. "v\.' : \
Chortling iii its folly the Examiner had
the impudence to claim that it leads the
press of this City, and t h at w ha t i t ori g i n
ates others imitate. We ■ cannot; allow
this >ciast :to :pass unrßbuked on
; the ' yiery : . : eve^ Vaf ; the . iGhrlstian. Kn
deaypr conven tipn, for the ; pffens ive
; ness lies in the ifact ; that the Examiner
exemplifies t hut degeneracy which is the
corruptioh: of journalism.- Good people ■
shut it from their homes, and niore tiiati
one public library has excluded it from
their read ing-rooms^ It is an jiisuit ip the
City to hold the Examirier up^ as ;an :
emplar. It is a ] libel to accuse another:
paper of following its. lead ■orVimitating
its style; There is hot ia paper in ■the State
charged with: copying the Eiamiiict that

The Examiner hay originated nothing.
Even its corrutitipn canie from^contagion
with the lowest class of New^ York ; papers.
It has been, the imitator of a depravity
I more : ingenious. ; than its own. Vj\. New.
York he wspaper sent a woman thrpugh
ihesruias to see how often: she: would be
insulted.: Tlie Examiner copied the '■en
terprise." A New; York newspaper sent a
woman to fall ori the street; in a feigned
fainting fit. ; The the
"enterprise." A New York paper sent a
man to fall: from a .fe try-bpat to 'make a
sensation. The Examiner repeated the
"enterprise." All its sensations are sec
ond-hand and stale. ,'••■•/■ : '.'.' ''■■''■■ -; • ;. ■••■; ':
Thipugh the number of Examiner freaks
may be counted fey the thousind,. if has
not had one that was: novel.: ■: All its
originality has been confined to its tele
graphic columns. It has invented dis
patches from the Emperor of China and
other dignitaries, but even then it was
unable to invent anything hew for the
dignitaries to say. During the war be
tween Greece and Turkey it published
columns of so-called "delayed dispatches"
; which had appeared in The Call a week
before. Ii ha-i borrowed, stolen, imitated,
copied right and left, but most of its tak
ings have been from the New York paper
which originated ireak journalism and
which continues to lead the Examiner a
reeling dance through the slums of vice
and the haunts of cr. me.: ...■ .
The Call always set the example of a
clean paper, bright and newsy, and when
it came into the hands of the present
management the Exa miner for a long time
imitated ft. The Examiner copied The
Call headlines, The Call method of giv
ing prominent place to coast news, and it
followed The Call's lead in getting East
ern dispatches. For a time it looked as if
the Exam iner was going to be a decent
paper, and we publicly com pilpieh ted Mr:
Hearst on his work. Then a change came.
The Examiner began; to follow New York
models: instead of those of The Call and :
the result is a carrion crow freaking it in
peacock plumes. It is necessary io shoot
it. For the sake of the City we cannot
permit it to deceive the Christian Endeav
orers. ■■._'■■;' : ■ .'■'■-■" . •'•'. ■
> • THE OLD TfilOE. !': v
A dispatch from Washington in yester
day'a.Call stated that information has
reached the Treasury Department that
large numbers of Chinese admitted as
participants in the Tennessee Exposition
are clandestinely leaving Nashville for
San Francisco, Sacramento, Su Louis,
New York nnd other cities, thus evading
the spirit and the letter of : tne. law
authorizing their admission. A count
was made recently of the nurn/bef now
employed at the exposition, and it was'
found that 117 were miss ng.' ' •...>•. ••;'■ :
This is one of the certain results of sus
pending the immigration and exclusion
laws every time an exposition of a /Na.:
tional character is held anywhere in this
country. The Call discussed this matter
at length some weeks ago, and showed
how the frequent suspensions of the ex
clusion act for the purpose of allowing the
employes of foreign nations to come in
temporarily in order to arrange and take
care of foreign exhibits made our re
striction laws a dead Jetter, and only
served to augment the ranks of cheap
labor in the United States.
At the Atlanta Exposition the very
bama thine occurred. A horde of Chi
nese laborers came in under the "sus
pension," and not one of them returned to
the Orient. It is not their intention to go
back when they once enter our ports.
The United States lia land of milk and
honey for. them. They come here to un
derbid white labor and to make worse the
American- workingman's condition, which
we shour.d bend our efforts to remedy. .
, The Chinese "participants" in the
Nashviile Exposition will remain here;
Next year comes the Omaha Exposition,
and a thousand more Chinese will come
in under the -act oi "suspension," and
they will come to stay. This haa ; always
been the case, and it is high time that
Congress took steps to correct the evil.
Better to shut out the Oriental exhibits
and Jteep the exclusion act. in force every
hour of the day and every day in the
year. __ _______________
OAEELESS CAMPERS,
The extensive fire which occurred Tues
day afternoon in the San Joaquin foot
hills, near Burson, and which is believed
to have been started through the careless
ness of campers, should be a warning to
all parties who may be enjoying the sum
mer slowly traversing picturesque re
gions, sleeping in tents and cooking in
the open air, to take the trouble always
to extinguish the fire before departing
from a locality. The grass and the woods
are now very dry, and any Jack of precau
tion in regard to campfires may result in
most serious consequences.
The town of Burson was saved from de
struction only by desperate efforts* and
the fire In question burned the hills bare
of their chaparral and greasawood.for a
distance of many miles. A number of
buildines were consumed, together with
an immense amount of feed and pastur-

. The Grand Jury report in : regard to

of theppsitiun taken by ; The Call from

So far an the committee which made the

NEW EULE8 1 OF THE SEA. 7
: To-day th^riew rules of the road form
ulated by the great maritime powers: will
go in to operation on all '■ the high seas.
These rules define more
clearly than hais ever been done before
the precautions which must be scrupu
lou*ly observed to prevent disaster, and
enforce more accurate and ; scientific
methods: of safeguarding life and property
atseti. The new rules will red;uire more
mental effort and watchiulness than the
old, and there will be less liability of
collisions. ..: .;■•. ";.'-.'■ ; ; ; : ; :- : ■
In regard to the screening of sidelights
the new rules provide that screens shall
now, as heretofore, be fixed so as to pre
vent thered. and green lights from being
visible across the bow of the aliip. The
helm signals; proposed at the Interna
tional Washington Marine Conference in
1889 are retained and incorporated in the
new regulations. ■ . . . ". ■.■ '.' .■
The new fog signals are imDortant, and
it is opined that they will serve to reduce
considerably the number of collisions.
While the new rules may need amending
in some instances they are generally ad
mitted to be a decided improvement over
former rule*, and the fact that they are in
force will give a feeling of better security
to those who do business on the deep-, and
be a fresh encouragement to commerce
between the nations. ; : .•'
It should be particularly obseryed that
the new rules are applicable not only oh
the open ocean, but also "in all waters
connected therewith navigable by sea
going yesselsi" except in waters where
local rules are in force.
;:;■. -■; A JOINT IiEGTTJBE.;
The lecture platform is about to receive
two notable acquisitions from the profes
sional world in the persons of those dis
tinguished exponents of the Marquis of
Qnecnsberry's favorite science— Mr. John
Lawrence Sullivan, la le of Boston, and
Mr. Robert Fitzsimmons, recently of Car
son. These gentlemen will deliver what
may be termed a joint lecture next Mon
day evening in New Ycrk. Their theme
will be "The Manly Art of Self-defense,"
accompanied, it is presumedj by a num
ber of practical demonstrations of the
salient points. '" ; , ■;]), ;; ' ; -; : . ':'■ '■. '.■■'• .■'■'■
The reform wave seems to have en
gulfed New York completely. This is a
con sum mat ion devoutly to be wished,
anyhow. The fistic debate between Mr
Peter Maher and Mr. Thomas Sharkey a
short while ago was iraught with so many
ungentle, even sanguinary features, that
the police of the Eastern metropolis are
.determined to prevent all further discus
sions of that character which threaten
i i ke wisis to cu lm i na te in reckless disp! ays
of temper. A joint lecture^ however; is
much different. Here there is no proba
bility of any disregard of : the rules of
strict aecorum. : : . .-. '■' ,'■ . ..'■■ r ■:')""■':■>.
It were difficult to find two other gen
tlemen so thoroughly well versed in the
subject above mentioned as Messrs, Sulli
van and Fitzsimmons. The police of
New York are evidently cultured as well
as discreet. The days of vulgar slogging
and brutal knock-out blows have passed
away back in New York. When Mr. FUz
simmoiM turns to the people and an
nounces that he will proceed to enlighten
them on the scheme of the solar-plexus
blow and to exemplify its effects on a sub
ject the police will doubtless smile ap
provingly when tne subject is carried out
to a hospital on a shutter. This would be
simply an illustration. If John L. should
furnish an example of boy he came to be
dubbed champion long years ago and in
cidentally drive his colecturer, Robert,
through the ropes, the police would regard
it in the same light as they would a
humorous lecturer's "good hit." It is a
bic thing for the age we live in that
"scientific lectures" are knocking pugil
ism off its pedestal.

CUBAN SOUVENIR COINS.
A souvenir silver coin has been devised by
Financial Commissioner Jose de Zayas of the
Cuban delegation in New York as one of the

low. The reverse boars the Cuoan leal, with
the words "Republic of Cuba" inscribed over
it. Six stars, representing tba alx Cuban
States, appear below the seal.
The comparative value oi the coin Is $1, and
the coin will be sold at that price throughout
the United States and Canada. The first in
otallment xit 10,000 will be ready during the
first week of July, a contract has been signed
for 3,000,000 to be coined If needed; :
