GIVE THE SCHOOL A PARK.
Los Angeles is spending a great deal
of money on her school system, and the
result ought to be something that the
city might be proud of. One thing
neon is reasonably well assured; what
ever may be said of details, there will be
ample room for all our needs in build
ings tbat are quite presentable to the
The high school is in general respects
a fine building, and will afford ample
accommodations for the purpose in
tended, for years to come. But there is
one aspect of that institution that can
hardly be regarded as satisfactory from
any point of view. It is a matter that
was very fully discussed before the site
was finally decided upon ; and so much
alarm was felt on the head referred to
that had not the public been given most
positive assurances that the school
should not go there, the bonds for its
construction would never have been
The reference is to thp two old and
overcrowded graveyards that he right
at the doors and under the windows of
the school. In a similarly objectionable
situation is one of the district or ward
schools which stands or. the other side
of these burying grounds.
No intelligent and unprejudiced per
son will for a moment attempt to main
tain that these are not ftbjectionabie sur
roundings for a school, or that the ob
jection is not a very serious one. So
great is tbe gravity of the matter that
we repeat, had not the public received
the most positive assurances that the
high school would be built at some
other point the bonds would never have
been voted. But these assurances were
not made in good faith, or at least not
with good judgment, for no sooner had
the bonds been voted than it was dis
covered that the promises could not be
kept, and the school was accordingly
built among the tombs. In the
sacred scriptures the story is that it was
a demented person who had so lost his
reason that he cut his own liesh with
stones, who frequented these grewsome
and unhealthy premises. Madder than
lie was, we propose to send our children
to sit all day where the poisonous etllu
via from putrid bodies shall enter into
every breath they inhale. And the
place is unhealthy to mind as well as
body. Youth requires for its mental
stimulus as much sunshine of thought,
as a flower does of the natural beams of
the orb of day. Here every time a boy
or girl raises bis eyes from the study of
the moment and looks out of the win
dow, a gravestone strikes across the line
Well, the building is there', and can
not be removed. What is to be done?
Remove the tenants _of the nairow
houses. One of these cemeteries belongs
to the city, the others to certain frater
nal societies. Burial has been stopped
in these places for years, for obvious
reasons. But that is not enough. These
graves cannot remain forever, or for
long, in the very heart of the city.
Sooner or later they must be removed.
Now is the best time to do it. It will
he. much more in accordance witli the
sacred feelings of those who have friends
interred there to have the dust of their
dead removed to some spot where it may
rest without further interruption.
The proper thing to do with the ground
is to appropriate it to the uses of the
schools in the shape of a park. Set a
portion of it off for a playground
for the Ward school, and a
similar portion for the same use
for tbe pupils of the high school. But
keep a liberal slice for the planting of
handsome trees, shrubs and flowers.
.Something very attractive might be
made out of these grounds, and some
thing that would be a source of health
to mind and body. Trees and llowers
purify the air, and make it sweet, and
they refiesh tbe mind as few other in
fluences do. The city can well afford to
give this property to the school de
partment, and no doubt the societies
who control the other portions will do
the same at a nominal cost.
Tun notion that when a river breaks
out of its channel the persons damaged
by the overflow have not the right to
turn it back to where itbelongs, is rather
diaphanous. It is not the notion of a
man with any practical knowledge of
what he is talking about; nor is it the
notion of any man with knowledge of the
law. It may cost, too much to be worth
while, but if tbe land is worth protect
ing no one can hinder the building of a
levee to restrain the water.' The notion
of planting willows along the banks of
streams will not meet with favor
among intelligent farmers who have
fruit orchards in the vicinity. The
willow is nearly the dirtiest tree that
grows, breeding more insect pests than
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 20, 1890
almost any other, excepting the acacias
and oleanders. Plant the eucalyptus
and pepper where they will grow, the
bamboo or the black wattle, but do not
plant the bug-breeding willow.
NOW AND THEN, HERE AND THERE.
Bank of England discount rates, as
they run at the present time, afford a
hit of study worthy of attention. The
rate a few days ago was t> per cent. It
runs pretty regularly at 5 per cent. As
late as a dozen years ago the rate of dis
count in Threadneedle street ranged at
2 to 3 per cent.. 2% being nearly the
regular rate. It we remember correctly,
it has not gone below 4 per cent, in a
year, and runs above that figure most of
the time. Now, if we cast our thoughts
over the range of interest in our own
country for some twenty years back, we
will rind a change in the opposite direc
tion. In New York and the larger
eastern cities, the rates of interest have
remained pretty steady for many years;
but those of us who are not
very gray or bald can recall
the time when interest at Chicago,
St. Paul and San Francisco ran at 15 to
18 per cent. If one compares long loans
and large amounts today in London,
New York, Chicago, St. Paul and Los
Angeles, he will not find so great a dif
ference as used to exist. The rate in
London has advanced, and remains at
the rise. The rate in New York is rather
stiffer than it was thirty years ago. The
rate in Chicago is materially less, and in
St. Paul it is much lower, while on the
Pacific coast it is about half what it was
twenty-live years ago. In other
words, there has been an ad
justment. Civilization and mate
rial progress are no longer regarded
as at all tentative on the western hemi
sphere, nor on the very western rim of
the United States. London bankers rec
ognize the fact that business in New York
is done on very conservative lines; Chi
•cago pork packers are regarded as pretty
solid men on 'change, and the lands ol
J Southern California, with their unparal
leled profits derived from their crops, are
1 held to be excellent security for loans.
No longer is there kept in London an
immense hoard of money seeking an
opportunity to earn two and one-half per
cent, intetest. New York is no longer the
absolutely controlling banking center of
our own country. Money seeking in
vestment finds it safe to wander far from
home, and thus there has been an ad
justment. Money in England is worth
4or 5 percent. In New York it is some
what difficult to get over 5 or (i under
ordinary circumstances. In Chicago
money is nearly as cheap, and the same
is true of St. Paul, while along the Pa
cific coast, with first-class security, one
may borrow money at about 7 per cent.
The range used to be from 2% per cent,
in London to 18 per cent, in San Fran
cisco. Now it is only a difference of 4or
5 to 6 or 7 per cent.
A vekson not unknown to fame as Jay
Gould, is very positive that silver should
not be restored to its immemorial status
of a coin metal with co-ordinate value
with gold. If this somewhat notorious
person has now had a conception that is
not at the core inimical to the interests
of mankind in general, then it is the
first time in his life that such a thing
has occurred. But such a notion would
be a violent one in its relation to sound
reason. The probability is extreme that
in this, as in all other conceptions of
this individual's cold and crafty cranium,
his eye is on some other person's prop
erty, which he would like lo transfer to his
own account. Any mortal of the non-mil
lionaire status who heretofore has had
any doubt that the free coinage of silver
would redound to his benefit, ought to
dismiss at once all hesitation from hie
mind, and begin at once to fairly whoop
for a free silver bill. What Jay Gould
wants, the rest of us had better not
touch, for it will burn our fingers; and
what Gould labels ''poison" for the
public eye we all should proceed to use
as our every day diet, with absolute cer
tainty that it will bring fatness to our
frame and the glow of health to our
cheeks. When Gould plays euchre—
and he always plays that game—he does
not. lay his cards face up upon the table.
He keeps his cards to himself with the
bowers in bis sleeve.
Tomatoes which sell in New York at
fifty cents a pound, bring the growers in
the vicinity of Los Angeles one cent per
pound. That is a nice little profit to
the toiling middlemen who earn their
bread in the sweat of their brow, as they
laboriously add up the column of their
profits. But then the growers are con
tent, as they can pick as much as twenty
tons from a single acre, thus making
$400 an acre from a crop that grows, ma
tures and is sold in a few weeks. And
there is this comforting reflection to the
producers—they may expect to receive
as good a price as one cent a pound for
all time to come. Those who han
dle the crop will be able to cut
down the margin of profit many times
before they would be in danger of going
nankrupt in the business. As the busi
ness is developed, of course, the price in
eastern cities will fall far below 50 cents
a pound. At that high cost the vegeta
ble would be a mere luxury, obtainable
only by the very rich, and a very small
quantity could be marketed. But at
10 cents a pound in winter the consump
tion would be somewhat general and all
we are able to produce will find ready
