ANTI-CHINESE LKtiiSLATIOX. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 9 April 1890

ANTI-CHINESE LKtiiSLATIOX. As a rule when anti-Chinese legislation is spoken of reference is made to the laws passed by Congress. But it appear- that there is a good deal of work that may be done nearer home. The address of Miss Cable before the Occidental Branch of the Women's Foreign Missionary Society puts into shape and form certain conditions which have been known to exist but were difficult ol proof. The assertion has often been made that polygamy is practiced by Chinese, but the individual who practiced it has not been pointed out. Miss Cable says she has visited and taught in 132 Chinese families, in several of which she found three or four wives living under oue roof. These wives are slaves as well as wives. They cost their husbands from $1000 to s_(vo each. "In most cases,", says Miss Cable, "the women are bought in this country in what may aptly be called the open slave market, for there Is no disguise about it at all." They are put to work, their usual occupation being t...

SAMUEL J. RANDALL. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 9 April 1890

SAMUEL J. RANDALL. A few days ago a dispatch stated that Mr. Randall was so much improved in health that he had hopes of soon taking his seat in the House. Later intelligence shows tbat this hope was vain. On Tuesday lie was believed to be dying. Samuel J. Randall was one of the figures in mo dern p- lilies! life that an American likes to dwell upon. He was in Congress in the - days just after the war, which proved fatal to so many public men, but no one has questioned his personal integrity. Holding .year after year a position which he could easily have turned to his advantage, neither political friends nor opponents acted in the belief that he could be influenced by consideration of personal gain. He dies after a long service a comparatively poor man, but-rich in the honors that fall to honest service. For some years Mr. Randall was a Pie_-identi.il possibility, but he never went into a convention with a large following. He was too independent to make the alliances which are more ...

NOT A LOCAL INDUSTRY". [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 9 April 1890

NOT A LOCAL INDUSTRY". A dispatch from New Orleans says a steamship lias arrived in that pert from Hamburg, Germany, loaded with elaborate machinery for the beet-sugar factory now under construction at Grand Island, Nebr. In urging that the present duties should be retained on sugar, Callfornians have been charged with selfishness in demanding protection fur a purely local industry. It appears, however, that beet-sugar factories are going up in other States than California. Nebraska does not enjoy the best of reputations in the way of climate, but capital in that State is not afraid to invest itself in beet-sugar factories. It is probable, as Senator Stanford says, that the cultivation of sugar beets can be made profitable where corn will grow. California is especially ada ted to this Industry, but not to the extent it is especially adapted to the cultivation of grapes or citrus fruits. If the sugar duties are not meddled with there will soon be sugar-beet factories in at least thir...

WERE GLAD TO GO. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 9 April 1890

WERE GLAD TO GO. In a discourse on the great Louisville disaster the Sunday after it occurred, the Itev. Edward P. Ingersoll, pastor of the Putitau Congregational Church in Brooklyn, New York, stated with apparent conviction of the truth of the statement that many of the persons who lost their lives by that disaster wore glad to go. Without Indorsing an assertion that we have no other means of knowing to be true than the word of a man who doubtless believes it to be true, we would suggest to some of the timid souls across the bay that no better test of their sincerity in the belief they profess to hold can be given than resignation to death in God's appointed time. A true •. Christian should have no misgivings about the future. If he has ho is a skeptic. in spite of his resolution to - believe. The Key. Mr. Ingersoll doubtless based his assertions upon the Icnowledge-tbat a portion of those who were called by that disaster were true Christians and the assumption that all such were r...

MANHOOD SUFFRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 9 April 1890

MANHOOD SUFFRAGE. In his veto message of the Saxton Ballot Bill, Governor Hill took his stand upon the ground of manhood suffrage. The following extract from his message will best slate his position: 1 believe In the maintenance of manhood suffrage, and solium as I have a voice In the administration of government I shall never knowingly Rive my assent to any hill the ellect of which Is io disfranchise a simile honest voter, no matter how humble or unlettered he may be, upon whom the Constitution confers the right of suffrage. . The assumption that the Saxton bill, which is but a modified form of the Austroliau system that has been found to work well in several States, will disfranchise a single voter is without foundation, or without other foundation than Governor Hill's imagination. The poiuts upon which all political bosses see danger to their rule is the secret ballot and the placing of names upon the official ballot other than those designated by the regular party conventions.

DELUSIONS ABOUT EARTHQUAKES. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 9 April 1890

DELUSIONS ABOUT EARTHQUAKES. George Alfred Townsend contributes to the Cincinnati Enquirer an article on earthquakes, of which the purpose appears to be. lo show that the only solid portions of the continent are New England and "Tidal New York. Of San Francisco, he observes that it "has been greatly dwarfed by earthquakes, and during the present generation they have ceased to build high houses on that coast.'' If Mr. Townsend's knowledge of the rest of the country is on a par with his acquaintance with this city, his article can hardly be considered a valuable contribution to physical geography. The trouble with Eastern amateur scientists is that they work with old maps, which bound the United States on the west at the " Great American desert." They do not quite realize that there is a good deal of dry land west of the Mississippi. Hence they fall into such egregious errors as Mr. Townsend commits when he describes the Alleghany Range as the backbone of the continent. And their conc...

TOWN AND KIUMItV. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 9 April 1890

TOWN AND KIUMItV. The New York Sun, in an article on the death of the late David Dows, observes that the class of farmers' sons to wliich he belonged is dying out, and that the successful men of the present and the future are generally city bred. This is regarded as it misfortune, chiefly because boys born on farms and inured to farm labor from infancy are likely to be hotter Americans than the motley progeny of dwellers in cities. Tiie town, it says, has replaced the country as the breeder of energy, enterprise and resource; and the moral stamina of the nation suffers. The -Shu's facts are probably correct, but the inference it draws is hardly just. Among dreamers an opinion prevails that Christian virtues thrive best in rural communities, and that cities are hives of vice and crime. Practical men know that this is not a fair statement of the case. Country youth are less exposed to temptation than city youth, and thus, perhaps, they do not err at as early an age; but when they do e...

Coghlan, who wrote a rather free and easy letter to the Valiejo Chronicle on naval affairs for which he was tried on charges of conduct unbe- coming an oflicor and a gentleman and of conduct such as to prejudice good order and discipline, has beeu exonerated, Secretary Tracy having approved the court-martial's findings to that effect. Arthur D- January, a young man whose prospects nt one time were among tha brightest, has been pardoned by the Governor and leaves the Penitentiary a hopeless consumptive, his wife having during his incarceration found relief from the world's disappointments in death.
