THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1890.
A frEw days ago forty acres of raw
land at Hollywood, at the mouth of the
Cahuenga pass, sold for $18,000. That
is $450 per acre. There is a water right
with the land, of course. The figure
runs the highest of the boom very close.
There is a decided turn in the tide here
abouts, and it will swell to high water
mark before long.
It is indeed a pretty sight these
November days to see the foothills as
green as emerald, with crops of green
peas just bursting into bloom, of tomato
vines with the young fruit forming, and
of potatoes just peeping above the
ground. There have been a great many
acres of these crops put in this fall, and
the planted area is being daily added to.
Is it not about time that the board
of supervisors should find out whether
the case against Hood's bondsmen has
been stipulated away ? If an appeal is
not taken before the oth proximo, the
sureties of the man who steered the
Tuscarora chief, John B. Haskins, into
the den of the bunco sharps, will save
their imperilled two thousand dollars.
Between the recent elections and the
more recent financial disturbance at all
monetary centers of the world, the
administration at Washington has heard
something drop. The result is that the
conclusion has been reached that an in
crease in the circulating medium is
needed. Silver is now down to W 1 , and
seems, likely to go as low as it was at the
worst time since a millionaire senator by
a trick'robbed it of its monetary signifi
cance. The administration even may
learn wisdom, and fleeing from the
wrath to come, may permit a free coinage
bill to pass. If $250,000,000 were added
at once to the-circulation of this country
it would hardly relieve the pressure.
What is that amount, large as it may
seem? It is only $4 per capita for the
population of the union.
Our readers yesterday had a chance to
read in the Herald Judge Wade's ad
dress to the jury on recall. He gave his
reasons at great length for instructing
them to acquit, yet they absolutely re
fused to do so, even under the pressure
of one of the most technical, hair-split
ting, refined, distilled and gossamer set
of instructions ever delivered from the
bench, The sturdy comprehension of
seven reasonable men was proof against
a line of forensic logic which it would
take a "forty-hextra power" microscope
to find a grain of every-day sense in.
The law seems to have been reduced to
a science of quibbles and technicalities
to protect the guilty from punishment.
It would seem to an ordinary under
standing that the way to do with Cohn,
if his memory was for the nonce in a
state of coma, would have been to have
sent him to jail for contempt until the
faculty gjt into healthy working order.
It would have bsen a fine lesson in mne
Tiie new war ship, San Francisco, is
being made ready for sea at Mare Island.
She will proceed to China, and will be
the flagship of the Asiatic squadron.
People of a superstitious turn will not
fail to regret that the new cruiser has
been named San Fmncisco. It has been
a fatal name to every ship and steamer
that has ever borne it. A fine clipper
thus named was lost near the Heads, in
the fifties, on her first voyage. A
steamer San Francisco was also wrecked
on the coast in the early days, and we
believe another vessel with the ill fated
name was lost in the Atlantic during
the same decade. Sailors are very su
perstitious about names, and they are
persuaded with difficulty to ship in a
vessel that has some ill-starred tradi
tion connected with her. Of course, we,
who are not disposed to believe in
omens, have no idea that the name of
the new war vessel will bring her to
grief, yet for the sake of the prejudices
of "poor Jack," we would have given
her a different cognomen if we had had
the christening of her.
In most civilized countries the theory
of the administration of justice presup
poses that courts and jurors possess
ordinary reasoning faculties, and that
they will use these faculties in a rational
manner—in other words, that they are
reasonable beings and not numskulls.
Contrast the absence of the logical
faculty, amounting to almost intellectual
impotence, as lately exhibited by judges
in Los Angeles county, with the sturdy
good sense and good logic and good law
of an English judge, as reported within
the last day or two. Cunning lawyers
thought they had made out a strong
showing of connivance on the part of the
petitioner in the O'Shea divorce case.
The justice, in summing np to the jury,
with a keen acimiter that Los Angeles
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 20, 1890.
judges apparently do not know how to
use, punctured this transparent bubble
by asking "Why there was a necessity
for alt the disguises resorted to by Par
nell, if petitioner connived at his wife's
infidelity." The divorce was granted.
Two and two make four, and not three
nor five; and all honor to jurymen who
insist on being loyal to their convictions,
and who cannot be persuaded or "in
structed" to say that the sum of two
and two is not four, or anything else but
NO PENSIONS FOR SCHOOL TEACHERS.
A clique of public school teachers in
San Francisco has prepared a circular to
the members of the legislature, urging
the passage of a bill to grant half-pay
pensions to all retiring teachers who
may have served twenty-five years. It
is to be hoped that this scheme will fall
still-born, and that no member of the
legislature will be discovered who shall
have little enough sense to present any
such bill. The California teacher is well
paid, better than those occupying simi
lar positions in any state in the Union.
The profession is not half as onerous as
that of the lawyer or doctor, and taking
the great average, and the ability en
gaged, the remuneration is quite as good.
At the salaries paid, any man or woman
| of proper habits may layby sufficient for
their needs in old age. A salary of $50
to $150 per month for services five days
in the week, six hours a day, and ten
months in the year, ought to be enough.
The teacher who is so well paid for
twenty-five years ought to be able to
spend his declining years quietly on the
savings of his time of active service.
Lawyers are not pensioned, nor are doc
tors. The farmer, artisan and retail mer
chant who pay school taxes must all make
provision for their declining years. The
state will not pension them. Why
should these be taxed to pension the
school teacher who has made more by
his exertions than they did? We are
falling too much into a dependent, help
less spirit in this country. What we
need at present is less salaries, less elee
mosynary propositions of all sorts, and
a little more of the old-fashioned Ameri
can self-reliance and manly indepen
dence. It is not all of life merely to
live. No life is worth the space it occu- I
pies that is not well spent, and sturdy |
manliness is one of the prime qualities i
THE REFORM TICKET.
The committee of one hundred com
pleted the work of making up a "Re
form" ticket last night. The names
will be found in our local columns. The
most important thing in the premises is
the securing of honest, competent offi
cials who will well serve the city. It
must be said this committee has made 1
many excellent selections, the men ]
named being substantial citizens of good j
repute. The Herald, of course, favors
reform in all things, but believes true
governmental reform always comes in
officers, local, state, national, through
the Democratic party working
in its own proper channels. We
most surely think reform is necessary
at this time in our municipal affairs,
and we as surely think the Democratic
party should do the reforming. But
good politics as well as good citizenship
will suggest that where this non-partisan
convention composed of taxpayers intent
on reformation has had the sagacity to
select a thoroughly competent and faith
ful Democrat for a place on their
ticket, that we nominate the same
person for that office. The same con
sideration will suggest that wherever
the Republican party fails to do this
same thing, then our convention will
proceed to put forward one of its best
men for the place. Between the wide
open ranks of the enemy such a sterling
Democrat can march to victory. This is
good politics, and it is good citizenship.
Turks was blood on an invisible cor
ner of the moon yesterday afternoon,
when Mayor Hazard tried to knock out,
in one round. Councilman Hamilton.
The mayor has ten days to consider all
ordinances before signing or vetoing
them. If the saloon-closing ordinance
passed yesterday afternoon had been
'filed in his office before four
o'clock, it would have reached its last
day of executive probation on the Ist of
December, the day of the municipal
election. The mayor, however, was
wide-awake. He knew what was going
on in the council, and just as Hamilton
and Clerk Teed were proceeding to his
office witta the ordinance, Mr. Hazard
emerged with his clerk and locked his
office. It was on the stroke of four, and
the mayor's office hours are from 10 a.
m. to 4 p. m. The council just missed
the chance to file their ordinance, and
Hamilton, a few moments afterward,
just missed getting knocked down stairs
by the irate mayor, who became in
censed at the councilman's declaration
that it was not yet four o'clock.
The mayor has won his point. He will
have till the day after the election
to consider the ordinance. As he will
doubtless be a candidate, this is no
small object with him. The astute
mayor can leave both the closers and
the anti-closerß to hope that he will do
as each side wishes. Of course, the ob
ject of the council was to put the mayor
in a hole; he saw it and countered their
move; indeed, if it had not been for
timely interference he would have
"countered" on the physique of the
council's emissary. Well, the election
will soon come, and then it is to be
hoped that this cruel municipal war will
be over. _
The stock panic in New will re
sult in very extensive changes in the
stock ownership of some of our leading
railroads. It is predicted that Jay
Gould will come out of the bouleverse
ment with a preponderating amount of
stock in the Santa Fe road. We should
be sorry at such a result. If it should
prove true, the great manipulator will
get a foothold upon this coast which we
fear would be followed by the manoeu
vres which have betn peculiar to him. in
his operations in roads east of the Miss
issippi. It would not be beneficial to
the Pacific coast interests to have the
Gould tactics developed in this part of
the country. Whilst Gould is a wonder
fully sagacious man, he is inscrutable in
his methods, and subordinates every
consideration to his own peculiar inter
ests. A man who can with perfect sang
froid either wreck or build up a railroad
is to be feared, and we therefore hope
that the intimations in our dispatches
will turn out to be unfounded.
Hazard's hole does not seem to be as
deep as the council ring thought they
had dug it. The long-hairs in the Re
form convention last night stood by the
mayor to a man. Will the council be
able to defeat Hazard in the Republican
convention next Monday, is the ques
tion now agitating the whole member
ship of the g. o. p. The council ring is
dead sure that this is done now ; but will
it stay done ?
Why does not the council go to work
and open Broadway from its present
southern terminus to Pico street with
out any assessment? The street was so
dedicated as far back as 1854, and its
obstruction for nearly 40 years has been
in open defiance of the law. Are not
these facts? Is the city not entitled to
the street through the three blocks in
question? Suppose the council instruct
the city attorney to report on this?
