THE AXE DESCENDS.
About nine o'clock night before last
Mr, S. M. Ferry, the chairman of the
Los Angeles board of supervisors, tele
phoned to the Times office the fact that
the state board of equalization had
raised the assessment of Los Angeles
county fifteen per cent. Unfortunately
there is no Democrat in the board of
supervisors, and the Herald was
ignored in communicating this informa
tion, although there are a great many
Democratic taxpayers in Los Angeles
city and county. This gave the Times
a "scoop" on this information. It is
perhaps all right, because the Hbbald
made an enormous "scoop" on the I
Times when this journal announced the J
bankruptcy of S. M. Perry, the chair
man of the board of supervisors, with a
schedule of his assets and liabilities.
Our "scoop" waß a legitimate one,
while that of the Times' was a hit be
low the belt.
But waiving the source from which
the information came, and the time of
its arrival, the southern counties, and
Los Angeles amongst the rest, have suf
fered to some extent by the action of the
state board of equalization. The action
of that body in raising the assessment of
the city and county of San Francisco 30
per cent, will undoubtedly qualify to
some extent the ill-humor of Angelefios.
AU that our people have asked for is a
square deal, in which values will be so
adjusted that our own taxpayers will
not feel specially aggrieved. There is
no question that the action with respect
to San Francisco, which equalizes the
tax impost, and makes that center of
capital to some appreciable extent
responsive to its overshadowing values,
will break the force of the blow as to
Los Angeles county.
The tax question, as it now stands, is
State board of equalization's action :
San Francisco assessment raised 30
per cent, or *95,308,000.
Los Angeles raised 15 per cent, or
Orange raised 10 per cent, or $875,000.
Ventura the only one of twelve coun
ties cited to appear, unchanged.
State tax levy fixed as follows:
General fund 23 4
School fund 17 0
Sinking fund 1 O
Special Mendocino insane asylum
fund 1 6
University fund 1 O
Total 44 6
Perhaps, after all, the greatest injus
tice from which Los Angeles, in common
with her sister southern counties, has
suffered, is, after the deportation of dis
proportionate sums of coin to Sacramen
to, the fact that, in any event, they
should be sent up to that center of ma
laria, nncharitableness and mean habits
and habitudes. It is fervently to be
hoped that the lien which that Queen of
all tbe Sloughs of Despond has upon the
lives of our public men will shortly be
That the discussion has become a
heated one is altogether owing to the
fact that the arena in which the argu
ment took place was on such super
heated ground. Between the white-hot
caloric of Sacramento, its legion of mos
quitoes and malaria, reinforced by ex
tortionate landlords, nobody can fail to
exercise a large charity as to the acts of
officials or journalists in that unfortu
nate center of untold miseries. A Sac
ramento editor, transplanted to Santa
Monica or Redondo Beach, would quick
ly become a reasonable being—a con
summation most devoutly to be wished,
but scarcely attainable with the Sacra
mento temperature at the scalding point.
NO GESSLER'S CAP FOR AMERICANS.
The office of Postmaster-General of
the United States is being prostituted
just now in an alarming form and to a
very dangerous extent. The individual
who now fills that position is offensive
to all persons of a delicate sense of pro
priety, and particularly so to all men
who add to fastidious instincts a robust
sense of honesty. This man Wana
amaker ought, by all accounts, to be in
the penitentiary for matters arising
from the defalcations of Bardsley and
the villainies of the Keystone Bank of
Philadelphia. To begin with his most
heinous offence, he has been proven to
be a perjurer. He swore that he was
not the possessor of a share of stock of
the Keystone Bank, and his transfers
of stock in that bank, standing .in
his own name, and with his own

signature, were proven after bis oath.
His interference in prolonging the
existence of the bank till he and his
friends could withdraw theii deposits
bas been very fully established. Mr.
Harrison, a gentleman by heredity, and
possibly so by nature, has been very de
liberate in getting rid of the corrupt
people by whom he has been surround
ed. He has already dropped Bank Ex
aminer Drew. Comptroller of the Cur
rency Lacy will probably follow. As
sistant Secretary of the Treasury Nettle
ton will also, in all likelihood, join the
procession. Wanamaker himself will
doubtless bring up the rear. The in
heritor of his grandfather's hat is not a
magnetic man, but we believe that he
is honest in intention, though bigoted
and shortsighted to an exceptional de
The case of Wanauaaker is a very seri
ous one indeed. There is no possible
question of the fact that he is a smug
hypocrite who was hand and glove with
Bardsley and the Keystone bank. But
outside of these cardinal points of in
famy, he is wresting the postoffice de
partment of the United States into the
line of espionage, surveillance and des
potism. To employ the cant language
of the day, he has an idea that he is a
sort of little tin god. He has under
taken to prosecute an eastern tirm of
publishers simply because they had the
temerity to publish from a San Francisco
I paper an article discussing the legality
of a decision respecting the Louisiana
Now the Louisiana lottery may be
good or bad. We will assume, for the
purposes of the argument, that it is en
tirely bad, and this will include the gen
eral judgment of the matter, and our
own. But, admitting that it is bad, and
superlatively bad, and altogether bad;
bad, without qualification ot excuse,
who has given this American Fouchc
the right to annihilate free discussion in
the United States? This criminal post
master-general, who ought to be reading
his newspapers through the faint light
which is admitted by prison bars, un
dertakes to deny to his fellow-citizens
the right of free speech and ol an un
trammeled discussion of the issues of
the day. In other words, he under
takes to set up a Gessler's cap, and to
make the American people bow before
We suggest to President Harrison
that the true solution of this matter is
to allow Wanamaker to gravitate to the
penitentiary to which he belongs, and
to concede to Americans the right oi
free speech which belongs to them, and
which they will always assert.
A HOTEL ALL TO HIMSELF.
The accomplished editor of the Stock
ton Evening Mail has lately taken a trip
to the Yosemite; and, amongst other
incidents in that romantic and august
region, he pulled up at the Stoneman
House. Shakspeare tells us that there
is a soul of good in things evil if men
would but observingly distill it out, and
our friend Colnon seems to have struck
the poet's aphorism between wind and
water. He even admits that the pro
prietor of the Stoneman House was a
lovable creature, as witness the fol
The proprietor of the Stoneman is one
of the most affable and obliging land
lords .1 ever met during a varied and
rather comprehensive experience. It is
a pleasure to state this, as my friend J.
D. Lynch, of the Los Angeles Hekald,
was here a lew weeks ago and for some
reason went away in a huff. A copy
of his excellent paper was handed to
me by a gentleman connected with the
administration of affairs in the valley,
in which Mr. Lynch, in his peculiarly
strong and somewhat ferocious style,
endeavors to convey the impression that
this is an excellent place to starve to
death. All he said he could get to eat
was tripe and molasses. Tripe in the
Spanish way is good enough oc
casionally and molasses has been
known to work wonders in connection
with hot cakes, but the two together are
deficient in the element of gastronomic
harmony, and if Mr. Lynch was not
deceived in what he was eating he had a
right to register a protest. But 1 am com
pelled to think he was deceived, for sev
eral reasons. I have not been confronted
by a piece of Yosemite tripe since I came
here, and whereas from every granite
wall tbat is to be seen there issues a
spring of 6ome sort, I have failed to dis
cover any outflow oi molaßßes. The night
that I arrived it was ao late, I was so
stewed by the heat, eodirtyand so tired,
that I ordered a cup of tea and some
bread and butter sent to my room to be
consumed after the highly essential bath. !
This reference to a bath is something
very emollient. The editor of the Her
ald arrived after a" bath of delightful
continuity, which he had spent in the
noble alignment of mountaina between
Wawona and tbe Yosemite valley. It
had been drip, drip, drip for many weary
miles. What be and the ladies of the
party wanted was some place to dry
themselves, and they found not a single
fire in the whole expanse of the Stone
man House with the exception of that
in the office of the hotel.
Tbe editor of the Mail says that he re
tired to bed after ordering a cup of tea,
and being served in his room with a
most satisfactory menu, from which he
selected at his pleasure. In thia connec
tion the Stockton editor says :
I congratulate Mr. Lynch on the style
of his living at home if he must famish
in the presence of this display of viands.
The Merced river is only a few rods
from the hotel and is teeming with
trout. Why did he not postpone opera
tions until he Bhould have caught a few
and had them fried? The river passes
at the immediate rear of Bernard's, the
other hotel, and they say that in dull
times like these when an order comes to
the cook for trout he casts a line into
the liquid water and hauls as many out
as the guest requires. When tbe guest
gets impatient, the waiter yells to the
cook to inquire the state of the situation
as regards a bite.
There is no question but that Bernard's
would have been an immense improve
ment on the Stoneman house, and we
heartily recommend all tourists to try
it in preference.
But Editor Colnon's ecstasy "*in the
Stoneman house is not without ex
planation. He had that whole ex
pansive caravansary to himself. Hear
The temperature remains about the
same here during the middle of the
day—that is about 86—but the nights
are a little cooler. It is also rather
lonesome. I was the only passenger in
the stage that brought me here, and I
am the only guest at the hotel—the
Stoneman. The seventy-six rooms in
this commodious establishment are all
at my disposal. When Igoto my meals
I can select any one of a hundred chairs,
and the whole corps of waiters are at
my service. I never was in possession
of an entire hotel before. It is a novel
experience. lam monarch of all that
Here is conclusive evidence of all that
the ller\li> has charged against the
Stoneman. The gruesome landlord had
reduced the clientele of the houso to
Colnonand himself, and perforce started
in to be agreeuble. There are few men
who, under Buch circumstances, could
not make themselves moderately com
fortable. Considering the well-known
gastronomic attributes of the Stockton
bditor, the landlord was obliged to pro
vide him with something to eat or be
eaten himself. Needs must when the
devil drives. He found himself between
the devil and the deep blue sea.
Los Asokles county with, according
to the census of Mr. Porter,one hundred
and one thousand souls, has six superior
judges. The city aitd county of San
Francisco, with three hundred thousand
inhabitants, and a very large transient
population, has only twelve judges.
Not only is there this apparent dispar
ity, but the volume of litigation in San
Francisco is transcendant in amount and
complexity. Common sense, public
morality and a sense of the just propor
tion of things would seem to call for a
reduction in our judicial fabric. The

hardt and tbe prospects of a brilliant
financial testimonial to her genius, re
calls the price that her abilities com
manded while yet a member of the fam
ous Comedie Francaise, which theater
has the greatest company in the world.
Mme. Bernhardt herself was only a
member of it with all her vast talent,
and received her compensation like the
rest. By tradition the Francaise com
pany are stockholders and their profits
are large or small according to the pros
perity of the enterprise. The pro rata is
calculated by twelfth of a part, accord
ing to the artist's standing—the first-rate
artist receives twelve-twelfths oi a full
part; the others only a fraction. Foi
instance Got, Delaunay, Maubant, the
elder Coquelin, Febore, Mounet-Sully
and a few others,alone took their twelve
twelfth, or the full part. Then came
Rchenb'erg and Barretts, with ten
twelfths, or 10,000 francs per annum
each ; Jeanne Samary, seven-twelfths ;
the younger Coquelin, six-twelfths, etc.
These parts are twenty-four in number
and each represents 12,000 francs a year.
Theße are the salaries of the societiires
or full members. The societaires, in
addition to the above salary, get a share
of the profits above expenses. In some
years the profits yield as much as
40,000 francs for each full part. The
share of profits is not given in full to
the actor. They only get half at the
first distribution, the other haif consti
tutes a sinking fund, which re
verts to the artist on retire
ment. Thus a leading member
like Bernhardt would receive 12,000
francs for her salary part, then 20,000
francs as her share of the profits, and
she would have, besides, tho 20.000
francs placed to her credit in the re
serve fund and a pension in prospect.
At this rate with the governmental
prizes and during a good year Mme.
Bernhardt, as a member of the Comedie
Francaise would receive only $8000 with
the other emoluments in view. Here
in America it is said Mme. Bernhardt
gets one-third of the gross receipts up
to $3000 and one-half over that amount.
In Boston $45,000 represents the week's
business, from which Bernhardt took
$30,000 and her managers $15,000. There

BUG EXPERTS RESIGN.
THE HORTICULTURAL COMMISSION
ERS NO LONGER IN OFFICE.
They Get Mad aud Hand in Their Resig
nations—William K. Ward Appointed
in Their Flaoe—Other Proceedings of
The three bug experts, who formerly
composed the county board of horti
cultural commissioners, have handed in
their resignations and retired to private
life. There has been a large amount of
internecine strife in connection with the
commission for some time past, and
only a small portion of it has ever
reached the public. The members of
the board were wont to meet on Satur
day mornings in the supervisors' room,
and it is said that the only thing on
earth that equals one of their delibera
tions is, perhaps, a session of the city
board of education.
The commissioners, Messrs. A. V.
Kercheval, George J. Mitchell, and John
Burr, got mad at once, finally, and
rushed to the supervisors with their
resignations. These have been in the
hands of the clerk of the board several
daySi but they were not filed till yes
terday, when they were read and imme
diately accepted. Thus three good men
lose a salary of $;> per day each.
As soon as this action was taken, a
petition was presented for the appoint
ment of William K. Ward as a commis
sioner. This document contained the
names of every prominent horticul
turist and fruit grower in the county,
and was an extremely formidable docu
ment. Supervisor Cook rose in behalf
of Mr. Ward and succeeded in con
vincing the board that he waß the proper
man for the place. Mr. Ward was there
fore appointed to do the work of the
entire commission at a ealarv of $5 per
day. Commissioner Ward is a former
, newspaper man, and has been editor of
j the Orange Tribune and Pomona Times.
He is as well known as any man in the
county, and very popular. Mr. Ward is ,
an uncle of County Clerk Ward.
