Honey's attack on Horia- tor PerUlriH at Ihe Simpson Auditorium last Saturday night ff;)l nit apathetic earn, and for nearly I wo hours the, well-known proMocul.oi from the north \r\'><\ arifl failed to ralHf: a lit lie on- thtiHldKri) for the Llrtcoln-Hoosovi League through a roil oral Ion of their cordial (Unlike for tho Southern Pacific Railroad. Honey's tirade wan brilliant, in spots, but the prosecutor acted weary, an if h« was tired of thf; hobby-horne thai bad been jolting him over t.h« Slate of California. Honey at his best IB deserving of better recognition than the Lincoln-Roosevelt League can give hfrn, and ho has boon associating In Ihe courtrooms with Kraftors loo long to bo deceived by a Hlrnplc change of brands. A representative of the Argus met Mr. Honey In the lobby just prior to fhe opening of thf! speech-making. Mr. Jlenoy WHH anxlotiH lo know what UK; voters In the ell run districts thought of returning Senator Perkins to tho Be-nate, and when told that Perkins was strongest whore citrus fruit was raised, because of the splendid protection he has given to that industry, and his honest fidelity lo the ranchers of his State, Kenoy said: "Well, of coiirtie, I have no use for Perkins. He's a Southern Pacific man'." Honey attempted d.o point out In a logical manner many of the? doflolen- eles of tho old parly, "the Southern Pacific party," as he termed it, but. rambled repeatedly into bin own exploits In Han Francisco, speaking at length of Abe lluef and ihe grafters of lessor fame, until the audience, composed of men and women who read the papers, fidgeted and became uneasy. Throughout his speech Money delivered bis message In a perfunctory manner, like a lawyer pleading a case which had already been decided In favor of (he other side. In speaking of Die rabid animosity of the Loft Angeles Times to his work in the past and future, Mr. Honey confided In the Argils representative, after the speech, thai il was because I'ai Calboun bnugbi the principles of tho 'rimes lor Hie sum of $15,0111) at llto lime of Mr. Calhoun's labor troubles In San Francisco, and that since thai lime the great Los Angeles paper had had no use for him. In answer lo (his accu- Kaiioi' Mr. Harry 10. Andrews, managing editor of Ihr Times, gave to the Argus Ihe following interview: "Honey's assertion that the Times is subsidlxed Is absolutely mil rue, and be knows it. The Times Is the most Independent paper on oarih. The Times supported Pat Calboun In bis splendid llghi for Industrial fn-edom on (his coast, lid furl her. "The Times opposes Honey because fin 1 ihe same reasons lhai the Su- premo Court luniod him down and spanked him because bo has proven incompetent, i ivaeheions and dislion- es in the conduct of ihe graft prosecutions iho ivsuli being that all the grafters have gone tree, largely owing lo immuniiy contracts granted by Honey for a consideration." Mr. Money was preceded in bis speech by .Meyer I.issuer, Marshall Sliiiison and several other aspirants to olllco mi ihe l.incoln-ltoo.^oveli ticket Perished A-Bornlnjj.

The fjeagilerH are defeated by over two to one. Kight, out, of nine assembly districts and both senatorial district*, giving a control of all county nomination*, went, solid for the Taft. Republican*-rancor is dead, and contumely and harsh words, and the Lincoln Ifoosovelt league is dead. In our own bailiwick, Covinn gave the regular Hepnldi'-iiris lo,'! votes in the city, and 17 outside, while the [>eiiiocnitH signed ii[i <i'2 votes on the roster for their own favorite sons. Everywhere it. WUH a most corilial repudiation of Race Track Hpr<"ckels, of Karl of the uncurbed tongue, and of Henry who fights graff, with graft. The 1/incoln-Ro'iMCVelt, leiignr made its campaign on one point, raining the slogan: "The, Southern Pacific railroad is the cancer of the CjiliforniH Republican party—let IIH cut out. the cancer." Who IK fhcrr t.'» gainsay t.h-'it. tiierr is a cancer, but why locate it in any party?

All that remains in a fpjiet assurance in the heart, of every voter that IK; will maintain the regular Republican nominees, and do away with the furore which has been disgruntling the land, which lias been prostituting the names of r,wo of oar most illastrioas Americans, one dead in highest honor, and the other at the zenith of his statesmanship—Abraham Lincoln anil Theodore; Roosevelt. SOLID FOB REGULARS. f WHAT THOMPSON STANDS FOB. I.

" U MI, M'.a '- i:..i,i, i,. ' ' THE TINKLING CYMBAL. Mr. William .Jennings Bryan i.s .said to have begun his public career at the early age of twelve years. His father, being a candidate for a local office, addressed a public meeting and when he was done the lad who sat at his side was called upon to 7)iake his bow and say a word or two, which he did with such stunning effect that he was there- ttfler in demand IIH ;i "boy wonder" on nil public occasions. This precocious gift of gab was still further cultivated during his career as a college student; «nd still later in every political campaign, great or small, until the "eross- of-gold" speech fit Chicago won Mr. Mryan his first presidential nomination. Hince that time IK; has been continuously a .speechmaker in season and out of season. It, is his trade, for he speaks not so much in the promotion of causes as to charm and entertain people and so get money. His habit is to go about the country not as a statesman and leader instructing ami persuading the people, but as a lecturer at HO much per head. The story is told that when in California some two or three years ago Mr. Bryan was invited to address the students at one of our universities. He consented to do it upon condition thi(t announcement of his college address should not be made until after he bnd had the opportunity of first delivering a pay lecture in the same town. Thrifty soul that lie is, he wanted a "whack" at those who might be willing to pay before letting it be known that he might be heard gratis. What would be thought of President Jloose- velt, or Mr. Taft, or the late Mr. Cleveland or of any other man with pretensions to personal dignity and to statesmanship who should take such ;i position before the public? Mr. Tiryan's attitude a.s » peripatetic lecturer, inconsistent a.s it is with iiis pretensions as a statesman and his claims to political apostleship, is perhaps justified by the fact that speechinaking, public, agitation, is Iiis trade. It is Mr. H,"y,'Mi 's instinct as a public entertainer ami agitator that leads him unvaryingly to take up with any novelty calculated id please or ami!.--/) his patrons, the radical public, anil which as unvaryingly leads him to drop any issue or cause the moment it era.svs to engage the public interest and attention. As an entertainer and agitator— as one whose most serious stmh is to ei'gnge and please the publii—he deals | only with those things with which the I public is immediately interested—with ''hut stnlT,'' so to speak. He has no sense of obligation to any principle or cause which prompts him as a matter of conviction ami conscience to stav with it through' times good and times bail, to preach it in season am! out of season because it is a tiling of faith. On Ihe contrary, lie t'urns deftly awav from the advocacy of any principle the vcrv moment it ceases to bring dollars into the box ollice ami takes up with sonic- thing else in which the public is for the moment more interested and which, therefore, is better calculated to jigger dollars from their pockets.--.Sim Francisco Argonaut.
