Senator Stanford has stated that he will present his resignation as President of the Southern Pacific Company at the meeting of the Board of Directors to-morrow, : lie has also given as his reason for doing so his inability to attend to all his onerous duties.

It is also true that Mr. Huntington will succeed me. '_ "One of my reasons for returning to the Coast at this time is the condition of affairs at the univ...
AN INTELLIGENT VERDICT. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890
AN INTELLIGENT VERDICT. No One Hpl&lt;l to Blame for the Death of Mrs. flattie McElheran. Coroner Eaton held an inquest yesterday in the case of Mrs. ilattie McElheran, the young widow, who died last Wednesday from the result of a criminal operation. Dr. E. Donnelly testified that when called to attend the patient he informed her that she could not live long, and she then told him that a midwife named Mrs. M. E. lingers had performed a criminal opei ation on her. Although the doctor swore positively that the woman was in her right mind at the time of making this statement, her father ana sister testified that she had been delirious several days before death, ana told different stories to them about the matter. Dr. Estes, assistant to the Coroner, gave testimony relating to the autopsy, which showed that the operation had been performed in a bungling manner. Mrs. Bogers denied having performed tlie operation,,and was permitted to go at liberty after" the verdict was returned....

30 YEARS. A LETTER FROM AN EMINENT PHYSICIAN. Mr. Editor: At the risk of Indorsing a proprietary preparation, I have a lew words in favor or the new laxative principle that is the great feature in Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparllla. lint, first, how I came to discover it. , A patient asked me about taking Joy's Barsapartlla for Its laxative effects. As nearly ail such preparations contain mercury or lodides, I objected and asked for the formula. - Upon Its presen--1 tation, finding it purely vegetable and so mild as to be, to my mind, almost inert, 1 consented. Imagine my astonishment when perfect aperient action was reported. .Nut satisfied, 1 tried it upon others and had the first experience confirmed. It has two great points: First, being purely vegetable. It Is (unlike mercury) not cumulative in the system,' being easily carried oil or appropriated by the assimilative, eilu.lnatlve and digestive processes; and second, tor some reason not yet quite understood, it Is effective with a le...

ON THE DEFENSIVE. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890
ON THE DEFENSIVE. The Call's Washington correspondent says that the Democrats have decided not to report a tariff bill on the line of the Mills bill. Their decision is certainly in the line of i- - cd politics. It will be much easier to criticize the Ways and Means Committee bill than to reply to criticisms on thu Mills bill. In ISBB, when the Mills bill was before the House, the Republicans in the Senate prepared a bill of their own and thus directed the fire against tho Mills bill, lt is simply Impossible to frame a tariff bill that i- not open to objections. Local interests cannot all be served.. When a bill is sent before the country every interest that has not received as much consideration as it thouclit itself entitled to becomes, for the time, an opponent of the bill. The Ways and Means Committee bill does not suit all Republicans, but if they had to choose between that and the Mills bill all signs of 'discontent would disappear. The Demo- &lt; rats will go before th...
SENATOR bTANFOItU'S FLAX. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890
SENATOR bTANFOItU'S FLAX. In an interview with a representative of The Call Senator Stanford said in refer- ■ ence to his plan to loan money on farms: "The credit to be loaned will he In the paper of the Government, redeemable as the present currency is redeemed in any kind of lawful money." In the absence of a bill defining closely the details of the Stanford plan, it has been assumed in some quarters that the Senator proposed an issue of paper currency not redeemable in any kind of lawful money. The explanation Mr. Stanford has given reduces his plan to a proposition to make banking a branch of public business. Land at one-half its market value is good security as securities go, but the question will arise if banking is properly a part of the Government's legitimate business. To those who propose that the Government shall go extensively into the railroad aad telegraph business the further enlargement of its functions in the direction of banking will not seem especially objectionab...
FOOD PItODUCTB. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890
FOOD PItODUCTB. The complaint is general that raising food does not pay. The farmers In the United States complain, but with far less cause than the farmers of Great Britain, France, Germany and other central European countries. The American farmer is the cause of most of these complaints. Land has been brought under cultivation in this country more rapidly than the increase in population warranted. Our land laws haye encouraged men to go farming when the wages offered in other employment were not satisfactory. There has been a kind of mania in this country to extend the area subject to the plow as raDidly as possible. A good many people seem to think that there is a criminal waste in letting land remain unused. When the United States contains 100,000,000 people"it will have no more land than it has now. Land that is idle now will be brought into use, but not in proportion to the increase in the population. Under these circumstances there is no apparent harm in letting schemes lor t...
THE MAN ON HOItSKBACK. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890
THE MAN ON HOItSKBACK. - A good many people discern in the young Emperor of Germany the typical man on horseback. While professing to be determined un a policy of peace, he is planning to -Increase;- the army. Bismarck when informed of Caprivi's appointment to the office of Chancellor aud of - the proffer to himself of the military rank of ColonelGeneral, said that tho^ Emperor had made . his best General Chancellor and bis Chancellor a General. The appointment of a military officer to the post of Chancellor is only on instance of the selection of army officers to perform a civilian's duties. Whether this policy is dictated by the military tendency of the Emperor's mind, 'or by other considerations, it is certainly suggestive of a purpose to have every branch of the ! executive department of Government under his immediate control. '} Army officers are ; more ready to take orders and execute them without protest than civilians. In . time of war it must be admitted that one-man gov- e...
HISTORY OF A 'CniNESE GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890
HISTORY OF A 'CniNESE GIRL. At the seventeenth annual meeting of the Occidental Branch of the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society Miss Emma Cable read a paper which opens up a vast field lor missionary work. After giving an account of her general labors in Chinatown and her visits to Chinese families, Miss Cable gives some points in the history of one particular girl, who is probably but one of many of whom the same story would be substantially true. This particular girl, being more than ordinarily attractive, was sold in China to a San Francisco slave-dealer for the sum of £2500. She was kept in a den in Chinatown a number of years and was finally rescued by Miss Cable and Miss Macfarlaud. The large sum paid ior the girl rendered her owners desperate, and in their efforts to recover possession of their chattel they placed Miss Cable's house under surveillance. All this may have been done by highbinders and Americans of the same class, but the story touches nearer home. To quote from...
TIIE PURCHASING I'OWKKOF MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890
TIIE PURCHASING I'OWKKOF MONEY. A .contemporary who has justly stood generally by the Government lit legislation to establish the single standard of gold is touched in the citadel of the moral sense by the demand of certain farmers in Kansas for legislative enactment apportioning the shrinkage in farm values that are under mortgage obligations by reason of a contraction of the circulating medium, or other unjust legislation, between - the mortgagor and mortga- gee in proportion to their respective interests at the time the mortgage was drawn. There is a certain equity in their demand which cannot easily be expressed in the form of law. The proposition is Simply that in the case of a $10,000 farm wliich was mortgaged for $5000 when gold and silver were the joint measure of value, and which shrinks to au SSOOO farm uuder the single gold standard, the mortgagor shall lose one thousand and the mortgagee one thousand, But, says our gold friend, the bond calls for 85000, and legislation w...
TAMMANY OH Till AL. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890
TAMMANY OH Till AL. It lias been the boast of Tammany Hall that it gave New York a good government. The trial of Sheriff Flack disposes of this claim. A Xew York Grand Jury finds that so important an office as that of Sheriff has been for twenty years a nest of cor- motion. Citizens who were so unfortunate as to be subject to auy form ol legal process have beeu stood up and robbed with nearly as little pretense of legal proceeding as a professional highwayman manifests when he orders his victim to throw up bis hands. The question has been asked if Tammany can survive this exposure. The answer may be found in the past history of that political society, ft has survived other exposures as bad as this. It may change some of its chiefs, and it may stand boldly in its defense under its present leaders. Sheriff . Flack said on handing in his resignation that he had been most cruelly and inhumanly persecuted by the newspapers. Tweed expressed a similar view of the investigations that led to...
BLAIM.'S POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 8 April 1890
BLAIM.'S POLICY. The St. Louis Globe-Democrat publishes an alleged interview between Mr. Blame and several leading Congressmen in which Mr. Blame sharply criticizes tin- Ways ; and Means Committee bill. The Interview Is probably supposititious and designed to reflect certain ideas which Mr. Blame is thought to entertain. There have been several intimations that Mr. Blame perceives advantages to the United States in reciprocity with such South American countries as will adopt our tariff system. Such adoption would be an essential condition of the reciprocity policy. The idea is to extend the free-trade condition that exists between the States of the American Union to all American countries that will adopt our tariff policy. The manufacturing interests would be served by such a policy. They would get raw material from these countries without payment of an import tax and would have a free run of the South American market. if the reciprocity policy should be openly advocated by the Admi...
