POLITICS AND BUSINESS.
Home few men can go into politic* and
make money at it .'or that matter, dome
men can make money at anything—bnt
it moat be,,admitted that the majority
who make politica a main a 1 mi ion and
pursuit find it exceedingly unprofitable.
Almost invariably it turns out that the
greater seeming political success one
has, the greater is the loss of means and
oi sound business Btanding. The excep
tions to this only emphasize its general
Ohio has given us two notable exam
ples of this in Gov. McKinl"" and ex-
Secretary Foster, whoße business loesesi
have attracted attention as wide as their
reputations. The former earned money
enough, but trnsted others who were
his political friends. Such a man is the
prey of those who "standin" with them.
In many ways thoy come to have rights
which cannot be ignored. Oi course it
does not follow that these horrowerp,
wbo so often drag their friends down,
ore dishonest or in any way dis
creditable; but it iB a sober truth
One should never ho osked to
take the rink of another'H business, in
which he can have no control, interest
or oversight. Gov. Mckinley did this
Very thing, and men in his line of life
•re continually doing it. They have
not the habit of men who rely on busi
ness principles nor the heart to begin
Ex-Secretary Poster's case is a still
stronger one of this sort. He was al
ways a "good fellow," and so always
popular. Everybody turned to "Char
ley" Foster when a big political lid
was needed for hie party ; and when he
led an almost forlorn hope in his great
race for governor, he p«t>med to he Btill
more popular, when his euemias dubbed
him "Oalioo Chorley," iv token of his
dry goods store start in life. There is
not time enough left to him ever to re
pair his torritic business lossee, caused,
as he pathetically says, by "devotion to
politics." lie wbo tvuats divereitied
business interests to orhers, as the busy
politician must do, takes the chances of
their capacity and honesty; and this no
man can saiely do.
It ought to be apparent, too, that to
be called a "good fellow" ie not to be
making a really solid and enduring
repntation, any more than it can assure
a competence lor family and future
years. To be a ''good fellow" to every
body is very tine, aud yet it is sadly apt
to dull ihe edge of a Berioua purpose in
life, and deaden the reasonable desire
for solid attainments aud a sinking-fund
at the last. It will continue to he the
fashion and practice of amhltionß young;
men to go into public life as deeply ac
possible, and stay as long as possible ;
And it iB only fair that they study tin.
object lessons around them, and not sac
orifice a reasonable thrift for tho ap
plause of those who account the firat
popular suceossei oi life as everything
necessary. It is fair to remr. k that
men may go into politic* aud make it
their only business aB well aB ambition
who get and hold, beyond riukof failure,
the good tbmgf) that money can buy
and can do for men and families.
Another Ohio man Is a remarkable
sample of this, John Sherman. We
could never admire his arctic aspect,
•nd have felts chill in the atmosphere
of his surrounding; and yet we cannot
fail to reinsmber that ia every pinch he
haa been, and is now, the really strong
man in hia state. Ww cannot judge and
decide between Wm and hia exact op
posite, eft-Secretary Poster; but it Is an
Interesting comparison for our readers
to consider. After all, Is not thrift a
duty? In not soundness and solidity of
purpose to save, and stare np something
against the needs that await us all some
day, a juat element of character? And
would not the "good fellow" who goes
into politics do well to harden his heart,
just a little, when hia friends insist upon
his helping on every conceivable scheme,
under the plea that he somehow partly
belongs to them—and also because these
things make him "popular? "
NOTES OF LOCAL PROGRESS.
It is pleasant to realize that any por
tion of Southern Oallfornia la making
rapid headway. Thia has been particu
larly the case with Santa Monica of
late, aa waa naturally to be expected
when the plana of the Southern Pacific
railway for building up a great business
at Port Loa Angelea are taken into the
count. The late aalea there, while they
indicate no kite flying tendency, clearly
show that the advances which are aure
to take place there are appreciated at
their true value. Santa Monica waa
obliged to wait a long time before her
opportunity came. The pretty town
waa started in 1.575 with a great flourish
of trumpets under the quite flamboyant
inspiration of Hon. Tom Fitch. He it
wan that gave tbe place the appropriate
name of ' The City by the Sea." For a
time it made great headway and every
thing looked highly promising. In a
very few montha Santa Monica was
able to put on very swell airs. The
building of hotels and bath houses kept
on apace, but the expectations of its
projectors could scarcely be aaid to have
been realized. Rich people—a class so
necensary to a watering place—were
slow in going there. This was all the
more remarkable because the place was
incomparably superior in climate and
marine attractiona to Santa Cruz and
Monteray. Considering its capabilities,
and the combination of business and
pleasure possible there, no place on the
American continent ought to be surer of
a more brilliant future than the little
"city by the soa." Tbe fact that Sena
tor Jones and Col. R. 8. Baker had
such a large undivided Interests there,
and were concerned in so many other
ventures, also had something to do
with holding the town back. Its career
now would seem to be onward and
upward, and it is greatly to be hoped
that ita hotel accommodations will be
brought up to the standard which visi
tors to a watering place exact. In fact,
Los Angeles county is singularly hnppy
in attractive watering places, Kedondo,
San Pedro and Long Bench bavins; a\\
groat points iv their favor.
It is Krefttly to be hoped that arrange
ments will be mule for cutting up tho
large ranunos in the neighborhood of
Log Angeles. The marvel ia that onr
city ban made auch rapid progress under
the circumstance". Of course, a man
has a right to do what he pleases with
his own, and the Laguna to the south,
and other ranohoa like the Alamitos and
Oerritoß, will be held intact just so long
aa it pleases their owners to co hold
them. One strong point in the line ol
progress has been made by the
segregation of the interests of
•ie Mesers. Jones and Baker in
the San Vicente y Santa Monica
ranches. This has already resulted in
largely increased eales, but there ougi>t
to be a very largely increased popula
tion on the rancho Buonoß Ayres, the
La Brea, tbe Hammel At Denker raucho
an '. all through the Oahuenga, which
lalrer region, by the way, is one of the
most valuable in Southern California.

tors can scarcely be said to have been as
energetic as their neighbors of San Ber
In the San Gabriel valley, and partic
ularly in Pasadena and Yltadona, great
interest is still being developed
in real estate. This has of course
been greatly stimulated by Pro

United States, ttllowing of a combina

The season of activity, says the San

at its height. With more of the pleas
ant breezy summer weather ahead of
him, then past, the yachtsman, whose
craft breasts the white caps and tide rips
to be encountered in California waters,
is now at the very pinnacle of enthusias
tic anticipation. There are, in the next
few months, races to be won, cruises to
be made with the fleet and long days
when a jolly crow and the good ship's
stores are a panacea for all his earthly
cares; days when he minds not whether
the winds blow high or low. It is trne
that in California during the entire year,
with the exception of a few occasions
when the soothers see fit to blow, there
is very comfortable sailing weather, but
tbere is a time for all things and the
time for yachting on San Francisco bay
is from the middle of May till the first
The brother yachtsman hailing from
more southerly ports does not confine
hie sailing to this period however. There
are fewer "sloppy times" in the winter
along the southern coast, and it ie
warmer. Thore have been a number of
yacht clubs organized from time to time
in Southern California. The Los Ange
les boats at present sail under the bur
gee of the Catalina Yacht clnb, which
takes its name from Santa Catalina
island. The favorite rdndezvous of the
Oatahoa'a is San Pedro bay. In this lit
tle sheltered haven the yachts winter,
most of them never going out of .com
mission during the entire twelve
months. The fleet is oomposed of about
a half-dozen very capable yachts, among
which is the La Paloma, which is the
fastest sloop on the CDast this season, as
the Annie will not be put in commieeiou
by her owner, Commodore Phil Caduc,
who is going to Chicago later on. The
other boats of the fleet that manage to
keep up pretty well with the La
Paloma are the sloops Restless,
Penelope nnd Puritan and the schooners
T. Kilisand the San Diego.
San Diego boasts quite a fleet of the
"25-footer" and "single-hander" class,
the lamer pleasure craft being designed
entirely for cmiaing and comfort.
Vhe yachtsmen in Southern California
waters certainly have, in one respect,
nt least, a grant advantage over those
hailing from San Francisco. In a few
hoars from port to port they are on one
of the most beautiful oruieing grounds
In the world. There they sail over a
tropic Bea with all its charm of brilliant
seaweed and animal life, and the main

average attendance is steadily in

the city and on every street. The district
close to the fair grounds is a
of buildings intended for supplying visi

of them are not yet completed, but work

I.OS Angeles Managers Garnishee His Box
Nit Goodwin's receipts at the Baldwin
were garnisheed last night, says the San
Francisco Chronicle. "The Gilded Fool
can draw no money until he pays a little
bill of $1,000.
Away back in August Frohman's book
ing agency in New York, of which Julius
Cahn ie the manager, made a contract
with McLain & Lehman, proprietors of
the Grand Opera House in Los Angeles,
on behalf of Nat Goodwin, under the
terms of which the sunny-haired come
dian was to appear there three night]
the middle of next month.
Mr. Goodwin was to get 75 per cent of
the receipts and" McLain ci Lehman
were to do the advertising, bill-posting
and everything else. All Mr. Goodwin
had to do was to take his company there
and act. The managers did not care
much whether his company acted or
not. Iv fact, they did not look for such
a thing. Tbey knew that tor many
years Mr. Goodwin had been packing
companies around the country the mem
bers of which resembled washerwomen
and dry goods clerks. Bnt they thought
thst the people of Los Angeleß felt such
an aching desire to see Mr. Goodwin
himsolt that they would nock into the
theatre, greatly to their financial happi
Some time after the contract was
signed McLain & Lehman received a
short note from Mr. Cabn, requesting
that Mr. Goodwin's dateß be changed to
tho let, 2d and 3d of June, instead of the
nights originally agreed on. This was
perfectly satisfactory to the Lob Augeles
managers. They thought that the prof
itaole engagement would be only a few
But in April last, while the people
of St. Paul were laughing at the Gilded
Fool, Mr. Goodwin thought that he
woulil rather not co to Southern Cali
fornia. He found that his eyes were
very Bore. He heard that people with
sore eyes did not do very well down
among the orange groves. So hie man
ager sat down and jotted a email note to
Messrs. McLain & Lehman, in which
some slight reference was made to Mr.
Goodwin's ocular affection.
"On that account," the writer said,
"we will not be able to appear in your
house this aeason, but the next time we

McLain & Lehman were very sorry
for Mr. Goodwin's sore eyes, and they
were very sorry for themielves.

probably act np in the soand country on
the dates that be had canceled witb
them. So they wrote to Lawyer Will

him to bring snit for breach of contract.
The attorney yesterday drew up a
complaint in which, among other things,
It ie alleged that Nat C. Goodwin is an
actor and that he bas bsen such for
some time; that he contracted to appear
at McLain & Lehman's theater June Ist,
2d and 3d; that he has no intention of
co appearing, and that tbe plaintiffs are
damaged to the extent of $1000, for
which they ask judgment.
A deputy sheriff was taken np to the
box office of the Baldwin theater last
night and he garniaheed all receipts that
may fall to Mr. Goodwin's share.
It will be remembered by theater
goers that the last time Mr. Goodwin
was here hie concluding performance
was simply an impertinence; he and his
company conversed among themselves
on tbe stage and acted in a way that was
outrageously defiant of the rights of the
audience and careless of their own self

by mail, that it has been deemed advisa
ble to visit Los Angeles to give those
who deeire such examination, advice
and treatment as may be indicated in
each individual case for one week
FREE OF CHARGE, thus giving suf
ferers from all chronic diseases personal
attention and all the advantages of this
new system that has produced such
marvelous cares in San Francisco and
Although the expense will be several
thousand dollars, we know that the
large number that we shall treat, the
cures will be so varied, and the good we
shall accomplish wi'l cover so large a
field, that the advertisement will be
donble what could be obtained by the
expenditure in any other way. We also
deeire to call attention to onr well
equipped institute. All we ask in re
turn is for each patient to report to
their sick friends the benefit obtained
by this truly wonderful system.
The scientific knowledge of these
specialists of symptomatology, patholo*
gy, materia media, and mental thera
peutics enables them to understand,
locate and historize disease in its incip
ience, progress and termination, and to
prescribe the proper remedies necessary
for a perfect and permanent cure. Our
medicines—mostly imported—are pure,
safe and free from mineral poisons, and
are prepared nnder the direct super
vision of Dr. Bryant, and will be fur
nished at cost.
Not only will the patient be surprised
at their wonderful knowledge of disease,
their plain, concise explanation of every
cause and effect, bnt the rapidity with ■
which they relieve and cure the most
obstinate caeee by the Bryant system.
It is this system that has robbed the
surgeon's knife of so many fatal opera
tions in cases of tumors, cancers and
other abnormal growths.
A WORD TO WOMEN.
You wbo have suffered long and se
verely by the barbaric use of the spec
ulum, caustic, pessaries, rings and other
instruments of torture, also bitter and
nauseous compounds, will welcome a sys
tem of treatment which speedily and per
manently cures diseases of women with
out the uee these cruel and unnecessary
Those who desire epecial treatment,
also those who have doctored much
with no results, are invited to call and
investigate our new system, which posi
tively and permanently cures all cases
taken for treatment.
