Hatred, an insolent, implacable hatred that drives roaHon from its presence, flrives honesty into purer air. YearH ago, when McLachlan was district attorney, he dared to brave tho absolute monarchy of tho Los Angeles Times, and although ho has steadily won IIIH way upward as a public, Hcrvant. has steadily main tained his prmitlon in the political arena, ho has accomplished it in spite of tho Supremo Dictator 'ind not •with it.H assistance, HIIVO perhaps as malevolence HomotimoH recoils, to the benefit of tho person maligned. whon Koprosontativo the people of At, this time.

There are one thousand men in the enmity more able to 111! this position, says the 'I'imoH. Nowhere in tho editorial is there an ar^'ii nil-ill, not, a single argument. Only an irritating reiteration that Me Laohlan is not fit for the poHition. Is it not a splendid prooi 1 that this statement i.s falHC when it is nunem berod that McLachlan ban «ono to Washington al, tho people's bidding nix terms in HUoccHsion and that with a vote from bin district of 'JOOO in majority of the presidential (ili'ctoi'H? Tho H! ate of California has a Ki'cat indMslry, rapidly beoomin^ Hienloi-, tho citrus industry. \\'e who dwell in Soiitliein (.'a I ifornia, in LOH An- (,'eleH county, know that, I lie wealth which has come to us will remain only so lon^ IIH this industry is pro toctod. And one false movement would precipitate I he citrus districts into panic ami ruin men in one sea Mm who aie al present secure in the sanity of the man at W.ishiuKlon. Ixeproscntat.ivc McLnchlan to his feel. biHt week and in the baldest terms pledged himself to work for the maintenance of the present tarilf on oranges, to make of it a redoubt, over which no enemy to the industry oonld climb, I'm- the school boy in the cit rus district knows that the orange grower would becnine a tiling of pity with the repeal of the cent per pound which MoLaehlan secured.

J In !;;i j for a moment forgotten tho importance of protecting tho citrus industry. At this time when tho Democrats are corning out flatly for an abolition of tho tariff, (Alton JJ. Parker's speech in LOH AngeloH.; and this so-called Republican league working in nut-rot for a man who is not in sympathy with tho fruit, districts, it behooves us to demand tho instruction of persons with whom lies the power to make or mar the prospects of the future. We cannot compete with tho cheap labor of Sicily and tho Kuropeati continent, therefore, if the lemon industry IH to become as important as it deserves to become in this state; it, must, bo protected by tho mofi who shape the polioio.H of the country, and in this Senator Perkins bus pledged himself repeatedly, nnd ia responsible for the protection we enjoy at the present time. Not, only miiHt wo maintain what ItHH already be'ori fought, for and won, but the tariff on foreign fruits nniHt be raised until onr homo product is recognized in the homo aifir- kots. Senator Perkins has become a power in the Senale, through unremitting toil for his constituents. Senator Perkins is now a member of every important committee subject, to appointment; he JH a member of the " on committees," which with the slating of all men fop- positions on all cnmmitloe.s. His seniority gives him the respectful attention at, al I times of the president of the Senate. Senator Perkins is a power, and ho employs that power in the interests of the state that, returns him term after term to his yea t. Let us he sure then, that the Republican delegates named this month support for the Assembly and Senate only such men as are willing to pledge their support, to Senator Per kins, bearing in mind the fact, that fhn industry providing us with homes i.s in IIIH keeping, his safe keeping. at Home. Right in line with the put forth by the . \r«us, dealing with the iieccHsity nf trading in Covina when possible, i.s the announcement that Oakland is making a decided effort, to control the local dollar, which persists in migrating across the bay. In every street car, on I'erricH, in newspapers and in all public places, the folbiwing placard has been displayed by the Oaklnnd ( Miamber of Commerce : "I'lvery dollar expended in ymir hiime city adds to the wealth of that community; inriciiM' the value of your h"ldiligs. hon't you oue it to yourself to trade al home, quality and price being equal'.'
