A POLITICAL OFFENDER.
A Pacific Mail steamer fly-ing the Ameri
can flag has been fired into because the
captain refused to hand a political offender
over.to the authorities. The Government
of Honduras, one of the least of the five
republics of Central America, is responsi
ble for the act. So far as is known there
is no pretense that the political offender
was charged with other crimes than that
of attempted revolution. Considering the
, number of revolutions that are inaugur
. ated in the Central American republics
. each year, the several governments ought
to be lenient toward offenders of this
character. The population of the five
. republics is Dot large, and consequently
_ cannot well stand the drain that would
: be caused by a geueral enforcement of the
death r_»nalty. Leaving out of considera
tion the law of the case the question
Arises as to the means of discipline. How
can Honduras be made to afford reparation?
'• The Government of the United States does
. not want to play the part of the English
'in South Africa or the French in Sam.
I At the same time our Government cannot
allow its merchant and mail steamers to
=be fired into with impunity. The case of
Barrundia in Guatemala should serve the
other republics as a guide. In tbat case
the State Department clearly laid down
the doctrine that the American flag pro
tects political offenders.
THE FIFIEEN-HOUR SPEECH.
Senator Allen's filteen-hour speech was
not all gems. There is much dross in it
wbich the Senator will discard aa his mind
expands. For example, he ridicules the
idea that money must possess an actual
value apart from its legal-tender quality.
After a iittie reflection we think that Mr.
Allen would admit that there must be a
limit to tbe volume of money. If Con
gress should declare steel money in place
of gold, giving steel coins the same weight
that gold coins notv have, money would
sink iv value to the cost of getting the
steel that was in it. The steel coin of 25.8
grains might be called a dollar, but in its
relation to commodities it would be worth
only what it costs, plus the value given to
It by an increase in tbe demand by its use
as money. The constitution declares gold
and silver to be money because in many
hundreds of years the fact bad been dem
onstrated that gold and silver cost in labor
about what they are worth in the market.
Slaking them money adds to the use of
them, ana consequently to the demand for
them, and undoubtedly increases their
value in relation to commodities. But if
. they were as cheaply, obtained as steel
they would be useless as money. Some
metal or article of manufacture that it
cost something to produce would take the
place now held by gold and silver. Cur
rency, of course, is quite another thing.
Currency has no value and needs none.
It is worthless the moment it is known
that the coin of which it purports to be a
representative is not to be bad in ex
NOT MUCH OF A WARNING.
The Call assumes that the Pioche
Record was indulging in a little sagebrush
humor when it suggested that the fifty al
leged murderers in our jail together with
their legal advisers, a sprinkling of judges
and several of tbe jurors in certain murder
cases should be presented as an exhibit at
the Midwinter Fair. Sagebrush humor is
of a peculiar quality and it is sometimes
difficult to see just where the point comes
in. The Record forgets tuat most of this col
lection has once been ou exhibition and
the criminal records do not show tbat their
presence has nad any considerable in
fluence in deterring other men from com
mitting crime. All or nearly all have the
appearance of men who eDJoy all the com
forts of life, and do not consequently af
ford a warning of the evil results that are
supposed to flow from crooked lives.
Tbe Colusa Sun says: "If the people
South of Tehachapi want to make a State
and can arrange it am' themselves, and
with our Uncle Samuel, they can go." "A
number ol years ago a voice was beard say
»-».«_ ..^.. 7yry7
ing, "Wayward sisters, depart iD peace."
But the wayward sisters were not allowed
to depart. Wiser counsel prevailed. The
States which were restrained are now glad
of the* restraint. They are members of a
mighty family of States, and are now the
dominant power within this family. It is
not well to be precipitate. The counties
that now pretend to want to flock all by
themselves have the Governor of tbe State
and one United Stales Senator. They have
sessions of the Supreme Court in proportion
to their business and a fair share of public
buildings. That a few ambitious public
men in those counties would like to set up
for themselves is probable. That there is
any. general demand for separation we do
not believe. In a small- way the division
of California into two States would be a
blunder of the character of tbat the Ameri
can people refused to make in 1861.
It is quite probable that Brazil will enjoy
the distinction of giving body and color to
what is known as the Monroe doctrine.
In a general sense that doctrine means that
European nations shall not be allowed to
interfere in the affairs of American coun
tries, lt means other things as well, but
it means especially tbis. But what the
doctrine means and what measure would
be taken to enforce 1* are two quite differ
ent things. The United States would
doubtless encage in a war to prevent either
Cuba or the Hawaiian Islands from falling
into the bands of a great European power.
Would it resist with like energy a move
ment on the part of one or more European
nations to set up a new government in
Brazil in the interest ol the former reign
ing family? Brazil is so far from the
United States that military necessity could
not be pleaded in advocacy of the right to
interfere. The port of Bio Janeiro could
hardly be made a base of supplies fur an
enemy at war with the United States.
The question of interference would there
fore be considered on the fundamental
principle of the right of one American
power to step in between another Ameri
can power and the enemies of its govern
ment. The successful assertion of such
right would make the United States the
greatest power on earth. It would, within
the range of action it might mark out for
itself, become tbe brain and arm of ail
America. While there would be no asser
tion of authority to concern ourselves
with the domestic affairs of any
American country, a limit would
be placed on the foreign policy
any one might see fit to adopt. The people
of Brazil are doubtless divided between
the Government aDd the insurgents. The
United States might see that the latter
were not placed in power through the aid
of one or more European Governments,
but would not attempt to force any Gov
ernment upon an unwilling people. An
Eastern contemporary says that "Europe
has no right to interfere in tbe internal
policy of the republics of the American
continent." In spite of tbis positive as
sertion it will probably be admitted that
Europe has a right to do anything she can
do, International law is not based so
much on the abstract principles of justice
as upon the assertion of a rule of action
that can be enforced. Whether or not
Europe has a right to interfere with the
internal policy of American republics the
United States as one of these republics
has a right to prevent such interference.
The question after all is one of power.
That the people would spring to tbe sup
port of an administration that takes ad
vanced American ground is a matter upon
which a more decided opinion may be ex
pressed. The spring would be practically
POPULATION HERE AND ELSE
The population of the United States in
creased from 50,155,783 in 1880 to 62,622.250
in 1890, or as nearly as possible 25 per cent.
The population of England and Wales in
creased from 25,972,439 in 1881 to 29,002,628
in 1891, or a trifle under 12 per cent. It
thus appears that the population of this
country is increasing about twice as fast
as that of England and Wales. The popu
lation of Germany increased from 46,855,
--704 in 18S5 to 49,416,476 in 1890, or at about
the rate of 5 per cent in five years, or 10
per cent in the decade. The population of
France increased from 38,219,000 in 1886 to
38,343,000 in 1891, which is practically no
increase at all. The latest statistics show
no material increase in recent years in the
population of Italy, Spain or European
Russia. As to countries outside of Europe,
there is a decennial increase of about 12
per cent in British India. We have no
means of measuring the increase, if there
is any, in China, or other countries in
Asia. Japan appears to be increasing at
about the rate of 4 per cent per decade.
Mexico shows an increase of about 9 per
cent in the last decennial period. In Chile
there is no increase of consequence, while
the increase in Argentine is abnormal and
cannot serve as a basis for statistical cal
Thus it appears that the leading coun
tries which are gaining :u strength are the
United States, England, Germany and
British Ii die, and that the United States
is gaining twice as fast as the most rapid
grower among these.
A history of the migrations of peoples
would be interesting, but its value would
be limited, first, for he want of accurate
statistics, and secondly, because it is only
in our own day tnat transportation bas
become easy and cheap. When land
transportation was cbisfly conducted on
toot, and sea transportation was chiefly
carried on in small vessels of a few hun-
dred tons displacement, it took a long
time to move a hundred thousand people,
aud it cost a great deal of money. In the
170 years which elapsed between tbe set
tlement of Nortel America by Europeans
aud the Revolutionary War the colonies
only amassed 3,000,000 people, though the
natural increase was large, and at times
immigration was active. Now, New York
alone receives 3,000,000 people In six years.
Migrations of people from places where
tbe conditions of life are bard and wages
low to places where the conditions of life
are easy aud wages liberal are checked
when the former become overcrowded and
the latter so depleted that 'the value of
labor rises. Tbus whenever land becomes
really scarce in ibis country and wages
approximate Id the European level Euro
pean immigration will decline, and may
possibly cease altogether, especially- as
about that time elbow room will have be
come more abundant in the countries from
which we draw cur supply of labor. But
it is evident from a decennial increase of
12 per cent in England and 10 per cent in
Germany that that time has not come. It
cmnot be looked for till the census returns
of England and Germany reveal a con
dition of things in those countries similar
to that which prevails in Spain. France and
For many decades to come a steady

TITLES SECURED BY AMERICAN
The announcement is made that the
famous New York belle, Adele Grant, is
about to marry the Earl of Essex. The
Earl is not a descendant of the Essexes
who figured so largely in tbe Cromwi'llian
era and in the reign of Queen Elizabeth;
but he is a peer of England, aud his wife
will take her place in the gallery of the
peeresses at coronations. If Adele Grant
is really to be the lady, she will add an
other to the long list of American ladies
whose money and whose charms have
placed them in the ranks of the British
They are beginning to constitute quite a
phalanx. Among them are the Duchess of
Manchester, who was Consuelo Iznaga of
New York; the Duchess of Marlborough,
who was Lilly Price, and afterward Mrs.
j Il^mniersley ; her sister- in Lady
Churchill, who was Jenny Jerome; the
Countess of Craven, who was Cornelia
Martin; the Marchioness of Anglesea,
j who was Minnie King of Georgia; Lady
j Dayfair, who was Miss Kussell of Boston;
i and besides these, are a number of
1 Americans, who, without being titled, are
I leaders of society in London. Among
] these may be named Mrs. Colonel Paget,
j who was Minnie Stevens, daughter of
Mrs. Taran Stevens; Mrs. Adair, who
i was one of the New York Wadsworttis;
Mrs. Joseph Chamberlain, nee Mary Endi
cott, daughter of the late Secretary of
War; Mrs. Cavendish Bentinck, yvlio was
Bessie Livingston ; Mrs. Ralph Vivian, who
was the widow of Marshall O. Roberts;
Mrs. Dudley Leigh of Stoueleigh Abbey,
formerly Miss Helen Beckwith. These
untitled ladies occupy a position in
| society to which some titled Englishwomen
I vainly aspire. The well-bred American
j girl has a natural genius for social leader
The French and other continental no-
I blesse are still more inclined to take Amer-
I ican wives than their English brethren.
Thus the Duke de la Ruchefoucault, with
one of the oldest titles in France, married
j Marie Mitchell, well known on this side of
the continent; Prince Chiuiay espoused
I Miss Ward of Kentucky; M. Waddington,
j the Freuch Embassador and statesman, is
the husband of Miss King of New York:
the Duke de Ilustin Ciioiseul took to wife
Eliza Forbes, the Count de Kergolay mar
] ried Louisa Carroll of New York, while
the Baron de la Grange espoused her sister
Anita, the Marquis of Talleyrand Perigord
married Miss Curtis of Boston, and the
Count de Kohan-Cbabot gave his name to
Miss Zepbita Hey ward. Among continental
J noblemen outside of France Graf yon
| Waldersee married Miss Lee, Prince Hatz
| feld Miss Huntington. Count Sierstorpf
| the famous belle. Miss Knowlion of Brook
j lyn. Miss Mackay won Prince Colonna.
I Miss Lorillard Spencer captured Prince
! Cenci, and Mrs. Gryuies of New York,

I parti in the Baron yon Hoffman, married
her two daughters to men of title, one to
the Marquis de Mores, the other to the
Baron de Sturm, who is now German Min
ister at Madrid.
This long array of marriages In the pur
ple explains the ardor with which Ameri
can girls of wealth and beauty aspire to
European travel. The European hook is
baited not only with treasures of art and
marvels of antiquity, but likewise with a
title, which is generally appetizing to the
female palate. It Is to be hoped that those
who do win the prize on which tbeir hearts
are set have reason afterward to congratu
late themselves on the wisdom of their
choice. As a rule those marriages are
happiest where the groom and bride have
trained in the same school and have no
early habits to eradicate in order to secure
harmony in the household. As a general
thing, all other conditions being equal, an
American girl will find her test assurance
of happiness in the love of an American
husband. But the rule is subject to many
many exceptions. There is no reason why
a man should not be a good fellow because
he is incumbered with a handle to his
name. Some of the marriages of Ameri
cans to Europeans of. title are known to
have turned out well. And considering
their growing frequency it may be well
for our ardent youth to curb their ani
mosity to aristocracies, for fear lest, in so
doing, they should find themselves treading
on their own toe«.
The experiment which Judge Dainger
field is about to try with prisoners who
plead guilty will be watched with keen
interest by those who are concerned with
the punishment of crime, and quite as
much by the bar as by the public. His
announcement is tantamount to an encour
agement to the guilty to save the city aud
State the expense of protracted prosecu
tions, and to accept comolacently a little of
what is due them for knavery. A mur
derer arraigned before the Judge will,
upon full assurances that be is not to be
hanged, probably declare himself culpable.
As a rule murderers do not run a great
risk of dying on the scaffold now. Out of
hundreds of homicides a year how many
of the perpetrators pay the penalty?
Judge Daingerfield's determination there
fore will not make a marked difference in
results. It will soon be found whether
there is any Increase in crime in conse
quence of this startling innovation in pro
cedure. It may occur to some other Judge
to come down a little lower in the scale of
punishment, provided the law permits

Sir Andrew Clarke, the physician who
has just died in England, was Gladstone's
doctor, and was thus prominent in his pro
fession. Mr. Gladstone had the utmost
confidence in his advice and benefited- by
it on many occasions, although no more
healthy patient, capable of rallying from
almost any illness, could be found than
the Premier. Of late his medical services
to Mr. Gladstone have been serious con
siderations in public affairs. He was
wont to say that he saw no reason why
Mr. Gladstone should not live to a hun
dred, as he has not a single ailment or in
firmity traceable to organic disease. " lie

A curious trade-union experiment is
being tried in England. The Trades
Union Congress passed a resolution a year
ago- that trade-union goods be stamped,
marked or labeled to show that they were
produced under fair conditions. The Felt
Hatters' and Trimmers' Union has copy
righted a label of artistic design, which is
placed inside the lining of all hats made
where labor is fairly remunerated and
where there is no sweating. The label is
not left to the employer to insert, but is
affixed by the workmen themselves, lt
shows in distinct lettering "Be Just and
Fear Not," -'Defense, Not Defiance," and
"This Hat is Union-made."
The Bonaveoture, one of the new Brit
ish cruisers which is to be placed on the
Australian station, has bad her coal-carry
ing capacity altered from 400 tons to 1600
tons. This alteration will enable her to
steam 14,490 knots at ten knots per hour,
or, during sixty days, without recoaling.
In other words, this cruiser can go round
Cape Horn and come to San Francisco
without stopping, or proceed similarly
round the Cape of Good Hope to Yoko
hama. She may even be able to go to
Australia. War vessels which can do that
are not likely to be caught short of coal in
face of the enemy.
A crusade is beginning against the fash
ion of wearing feathers in bonnets. The
people offended say it is au unfeeling and
cruel practice, for the birds are killed
when nesting, at which period their feath
ers are the most beautiful. The protest
will be just as useless as it has always
been. Ladies will wear what they like,
and it would just be as practicable to turn
Niagara back as to deflect those who are
bent upon being fashionable from their
purpose. There would be no objection to
ladies adorning themselves with the feath
ers of poultry. _ .
Eagerness to vote straight and often
and to keep the other side from doing the
same is accountable for some ugly be
havior at the polls in the East. The great
game of politics is, among the rowdy,
worse than foul hustling aud tackling at
football. The disgrace of not letting peo
ple vote as they have a miud to seems to
he held of light, account. At Camden, in
New Jersey, resort has been had to knives
and razors to pile up a majority, and a
number of persons are wounded, lf a
good mechanical service for counting bal
lots were In general use these resorts to
violence would wane, because with celerity
and honesty in getting the results the
tricks now practiced would be discomfited.
California sustains its reputation for the

larger than the average parent in the

locked behind the gloomy doors of a cheer

there was a large delegation from the

simple service of the ritual was so in keep
ing with the life of him who tvas mourned,
and the grief wbicb Yvas manifested was
only such as is called out by the death of
one who was well beloved.
The intimate friends of the family and
the delegations from the various societies
gathered at the late residence of the de

enworth street, aud at 11 o'clock they es
corted the remaius to the hall, where the
lust rites were to be celebrated. The
heavily draped metallic caskei, with its
silver mounting, was sirewn with loose
fluwers, while the plate upon the lid bore

Arriving at the hall the ceremonies there
were performed by Walker C. Graves,
master of Pacific Lodge, and assisted by
\V. T. Hamilton and M. M. Stone, assist
ant wardens of tbe lodge.
After these were completed Key. W. B.
Noble, D.D., pastor of the First Presby
terian Church of San Rafael, delivered a
short eulogy of the deceased.
"Not only is Mr. Montgomery missed in
his home to-day," said Dr. Noble, "and not
only in this city, but all the Slate feels his
loss. He was a public man, and in his
own peculiar way he bad endeared himself
"But ii is not of his public life and work
that 1 would speak, but of his character,
lor he was a man of very strong traits.
He was one of the baud of pioneers who
braved the dangers oi a new country, and
he bore bis full share of the privations
which were here endured. And the denial
which he thus suffered, and the hardship
he then experienced, fitted him to be the
man he was in later days, lt made him
sympathetic, and was the source of the
inspiration of many of his acts of kindness.
"He was uot a churchman, though his
Scotch ancestry was, of course, Presby
terian, and bis sympathies went with that
church. It was tha faith of his fathers,
aud he loved it. Few Presbyterian
churches in this vicinity have ever ap
pealed to him in vain, and the crowning
act of his life was the endowment, of the
San Francisco Theological Seminary, thus
setting forth streams of influence whose
power can never be computed. His life
and interests were wrapped un in the
future ol this institution, and there in the
memorial chapel, now being erected, his
dust will find its resting place until the
"That he was not a professing Christian
we regret, but who can tell what commun
ings were held in the inner temple of his
soul between himself and the God who
gave him life. Let us not judge, but only
be watchful tor ourselves, not trusting in
our own merit, but in the merits of the
The music was furnished by the Masonic
choir composed of Mme. Waltz, soprano
MiRS Storey, contralto; J. K. Jones, bass;
J. R. Ogilvie, teuor, and Samuel D. Mayer,
organist. During the services they sang
"Nearer, My God, to Thee," "Rock of
Ages," a duet for soprano and tenor, "O'er
Mourning Lands," and Mme. Waltz sang
"Angels Ever Bright and Fair" very ef
At the close of the exercises, while the
organ poured forth its most plaintive
tones; the congregation took its last view of
the dead, then slowly filed out to stand
with uncovered head as the remains were
borne from the hall.
The pallbearers were composed of mem
bers of the three organizations of which
deceased was a member, as follows: Pacific
Lodge, F. ami A. M.— P. D. Code, John F.
Kennedy, Thomas Penlington and Thomas
Anderson ; Society of Pioneers— C. V. S.

Leach, W. 11. Campbell, J. G. Eagleson,
Some beautiful floral pieces were sent to
the house, the gift of the societies which
participated in the funeral, and all of the
designs were suggested by something in
the life of Mr. Montgomery, or in his con
nection with the organization which was
the donor. RP!9B£BSI
The remains were interred at Lsurel

Anselmo is completed, when they will be
finally laid to rest in the shadow of the l
Institution which he loved.
THE BROOM BRIGADE.
Sixty Men to Be Put to Work on
the Streets To-Day.
Arrangements were completed with the
California Construction Company yester
day by which Contractor Eagers guaran
teed to spend $2000 a month out of his
street-sweeping returns for the benefit of
The arrangement was brought about by
Mayor Eliert, who desired to give those
who were unemployed a chance to earn a
little to pay for their meals instead of sub
sisting on charity. The idea is to do away
with the souphouse on Seventh aud Mis
sion streets. Tbo Salvation Army will
have charge of the matter of furnishing
the men to the street-sweeping company,
and ttio<e having families will be given
About sixty of the broom-sweeping bri
gade will be placed at work to-day. Men
will be kept at work for at least ninety
days, so that they can tide over the winter. .
The men will be given §10 a mile or 50
cents a block with 20 cents for crossings.
The ' sweeping .; company will pay to have
the dirt swept up carried away. li is
thought that it will take one man a half
day to sweep, one block and a crossing.
Men will be placed to work in relays of
two days each so that at least 160 men will
be kept at work.' The unemployed will not
be paid in money, but in checks, which
will be good for meals and lodgings at the
Salvation Army Lifeboat.
The souDtiouse will be abandoned, and
those who do not desire to work in order
to pay for their board and lodging will be
compelled to shift for themselves. A num
ber of contractors, among them Warren
and Malley, have, promised within a few
days 'to put on a large number of work
