If tub progress that has been made in
christianizing the Chinese In our midst
be taken as an indication of the number
of conversions to the true faith made by
missionaries in China, tbe reas
oner will not lail to arrive at the conclu
sion that retaliation lor the enforcement
of the Deary act will be but a Blight im
pediment to the spread of religion. If
tbe miesionariea in China aro forced to
come homo, they will find an ample
field to work in among our own people ;
and no doubt they would make far more
conversions here than they have made
among the heathens of the Flowery
kingdom. ___________
Thk president yesterday officially
proclaimed that the Russian-American
extradition treaty bad been ratified and
would go into elfoct in twenty days.
Tbe treaty in its entirety has not yet
been given to the public, but enough of
i\fi contents bave leaked out to let us
know that no such treaty ehould ever
have bean ratified by tlrs country. It
provides that parties charged with crim
inal offenses, including attempts
npon the lives of tho rulers or
their families of either country, may
berextradited. When it ia understood
that every act of a political character
to change the government ia belt! by
Russian law as an attempt upon the
life of the czar, we can to what in
famous purooaes thia treaty may be pat.
Besides trial by jury is unknown in two
thirds of the Russian empire. A politi
cal fugitive may be arrested in thia
country on any trumped-up charge that
is extraditable and sent back to Russia,
where he will be tried by a secret tribu
nal and sent to Siberia to perish in the
miucs. There should be no treaty of ox
traditiou between a country in which
the law is administered on civilized
and enlightened principles' and one in
which the law ia administered on bar
barous and despotic principles.
A i>ovm.E murder occurred in China
town yesterday. Thera is nothing un
usual in this. But it may again »erve
to draw attention to the peculiar eyti
of slavery which ia practiced in this
country by that peo| ie. The woman
who was killed wai cvi lently held aa tbe
chattel of a Chinaman, and the man who
killed her took her life when he found
that he could not get her to change
masters. Tilia ia a mere supposition;
but there is no doubt that the woman
was the property of Tom Bin, who did
not appear on the scene. It is a no
torious fact that the Chinese in this state
buy and sell tha women whose
bodies are let out for a price. It
has been time nnl a.gaiu de
veloped in the courts that th ) e»n
women are bought and , >!d by the Chi
nese traders in il lib as if they were bo
many cattle; that they have their mar
ket price the same as live -nock : and
that the ingenuity oi the lawyers atd
the sagacity of the courts have never
Seen ruual to convict these slave-dealers
in the face of the terrorism ami perjury
they exercise and procure. Eastern peo
plo who Inveigh against Californlans on
act'pnut of tho radical views ttiey hold
on the Chinese question, are utterly
ignorant of the terrible evils the Mon
golians are fastening upon the county.
Whilst their vices are unspeakable and
contaminating, tbey are ineradicable by
any process known to our civilization.
Exclusion that will exclude is the only
remedy.
THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY AND THE
WHITTIER REFORM SCHOOL.
Wp alwaya endeavor to cultivate a
friendly and appreciative feeling towards
the people who manage nur local insti
tutions, ami we are the morn particular
in doing thiH because there has been a
good d«-al of friction as to some of them,
no'ably the Kan Mernardino insane
asylum and the Whittier reform school
at tbe time they worn being inaug
urated. Much of this we regarded at)
characterized by a personal nnimns.
Our attention la now drawn to what
seema very much liko an abuse in the
management of the Whittier reform
school. In fact, there is no occasion for
beating about the bush in the matter.
Yesterday District Attorney Dillon filed
an opinion with the board of supervis
ors, advising tho rejection of tbe de
mands of Superintendent Lntlley, of
t'tie Whittier state reform school, to the
amount of M080.97i The demands are
for the conot/'l half of the mainten
ance of incorrigible* sent from thtß
county. Tho last legislature increased
the amount per inmate per month to
fL'5 from $IH, the previous figure.
Thi! district, attorney cnntraHtn the ox
ponditneoH at various other institutions
in the state with the Whittier school,
ami lull that it is lining run in a very
extravagant manner, which demands
investigation.
He also contends that if the act In*
creasing the monthly allowance dons not
carry with it the right of the hoard of
supervisors to know for what they are
paying out the county's monoy, it in un
constitutional.
The comparison of expenditures of
other institutions with those at Whittier
shows a great percentage of increase
against our local institution.
Common sense and ordinary business
pradenet call for an Uarnlstd account of
thnao nnunnaj expenditures bafore thoy
shall be allowed, if they aro allowed at
all. There Is entirely too much euphem
ism in this whole busl.inss. The in
mates of the Whittier reform school are
styled fit,iiil«nts, which is perhaps well
enough. If they shall live up to the
high ideals that underlie thia notion
much will have been gained, liut, aa a
matter of fact, it is Bimply a reformatory
institution, to which many incorriathles
are Bent, and there is no occasion for
any double-milled,extra superfine ideal
ism about the school. It ought to be
brought down to tho plain level of o im
mou senne and accountability, ami this
Is especially true of tbe expenditures ol
the institution. It is the duty of
the supervisors to see to it that no money
of the county is expended without a"
ijuid pro cjiio. The sum of $25 a mouth
for the inmates, considering that lodg
ing and attendance are provided, in pre
posterous, finch a Bum admits of the
carrying on of the school on a acale of
luxury utterly out of the contemplation
of tho people of tho atate of California,
in providing reformatory institutions.
The supervisors should scrutinize very
carefully the way tbe people's money is
being expended at Whittier. Tho lltcn
alp agrees with the district attorney
that there iB a largo-sized nigger in tho
wood pilo in that interesting neighbor
hood, aud the sooner he is unearthed
the better for the taxpayers.
THE EX-POST FACTO BUGBEAR.
The case of Ah Yung missed lire yes
terday beoause he waa arreated under
the exclusion laws existing prior to the
passage of the Geary act. Had he boen
brought before the United States dis
trict judge under the Geary act hia testi
mony to the effect that ho had con
stantly lived in this state from a time
prior to tho piseßgu of the exclusion act
would not have availed. Tbe fact that
no had not complied with the registra
tion requirements of the Geary law
would have forced the court to order hiu
deportation.
Other cases will be urged, and if pos
sible got before the federal court, in
which the complaints will be based
upon a violation of the Goaty law.
One line of defense in theße
cases will be that the accnaed, bavin*
lived here nrior to the passage of the
exclusion laws and tho Geary act, ac
uuired the same riubts of residence as
other aliens, and therefore the act which
singles them out for registration, not
only discriminates against the rights of
residence they had legally acquired, but
operates as an ex-pcit faoto law, and ia in
derogation of the constitution.
This position will be met by the wtjll
recognizsd principle of public lnw which
concedes to every sovereign p.iwor the
richt to determine to what kind and
whet class of citizens it shall extend the
hospitality of a residence within its
boundaries. Having the undisputed
ni,'ht to admit, or exclude, it follows that
it has the riiht to attach such reßnl*-'
tiona as are reasonable or necessity
in order to ii.ike the rinht effective.
Tha privilege of residence ia not im
paired by ra ;'iiriu,» aliens who are can
ce led that privilege to register so that
tho sovereign power c*n determine
whether itip Kws have h.:en abused or
violated. '1 'u> law ia not ex-po*tfacto aa
far aa it relates to the privilege of resi
dence, and that is the only substautive
but transitory right the alien could have
acquired,
The lisarr law only inve.ita the priv
ilege witli a new duty, and that
is rejistration. Whilst the sovereign
powtr oould, if it deemed such an exer
cise of authority necessary, order all
nilen= or any particulm clais ol aliens,
out oi the canntry, without conflicting
with tiie ci posl fado principle ol the
T/)S ANGELES TTERALDi WEDNESDAY MORNING, JUNE 7, 1893.
constitution, it wonld be so much
less in conflict with that principle when
it only attached conditions to the privi
lege Recorded to a certain class of aliens
to remain in the country. The greater
power indnbiiably includes the infinitely
lesser one.
HOG IS KING.
The edict has gone forth to raise hogs,
to which the present price of seven cents
a pound on the hoof no doubt largely
contributes. There may be some reason
to doubt whether that figure will last
very long. It Is a high price for pork,
and involves an almost extravagant
premium on hog raising. It can be cut
down to five cents and still allow a satis
factory profit on raising hogs in a coun
try where alfalfa and corn both yield
such extravagantly large returns. But
It is as sure as things generally are in a
capricious world that bogs will command
high' prices for yeara to come, and for a
simple reaaon. Some monthe ago the
11 an ,v. i> published statistics as to the
amount of hogs on hand in the United
Stales this year as compared with several
yearß past. The exhibit, which was
official, was not only an instructive but
an astonishing one. The supply of hogs
in this conntry has fallen ofT inconceiv
ably. This year we are four or five
million hogs short of nnr normal figures.
This is due in part to thn and con
tinuous demand for American pork
abroad. Any one who is In business
knows that tho price of American ham
und bacon and mess pork has been rising
steudily. That telle the story. We
shall be engaged for yeara to come in
raiaing bogs to bring our average up to
the normal point, and I.os Angeles ranch
ers ought to trim their sails to this pros
perous wind.
At the same time it is not well to go
too fast. The business ol raising hogs
is not so simple aa it looks to be. The
farmer who desires to Buccaed in this
branch of farming must take great pains
to keep his hoR» healthy. He must pro
vide them with plenty of running water
and he muat one that their quarters are
aa clean aa a pin. With abundant food
and cleanliness the hog will do remark
nbly woll in Lioj Angeles, and will make
his ownet rich. Tbe iterkslfire is the
beat, breed for this climate. Avoid all
fancy white hogs. If the rancher shall
keep theae very brief inatructiona in
mind he will avoid hog cholera, will see
his porcine possessions multiply at an
incredible rate, and he will be shortly a
rich man.
AN UNPARDONABLE NUISANCE.
The fact ought to be borne in mind
that Los Angeles Is rapidly assuming the
status and all the airs of a metropolitan
city, and yet there are some village hab
itudes about us that ought to be cor
rected. Tbe most oflenniye and pro
vincial of these is tbe universal habit of
hitching or standing horses, with ve
hicles attached generally, in tho streets.
Why should this be permitted? There
are numerous livery stables in the city,
and it ought to be compulsory on the
owners of horses and vehicles to put
them up in some corral or livery stable.
There would be nothing of hardship in
Btich a rule. As it is now, the fashion Of
allowing horses to stand for hours on our
thoroughfares is cruel to the animals
and moat offensive and inconvenient to
pedestrians. Oniute naturally brings
odors, and under the present system one
is often obliged to hold one's nose while
passing through the streets. Such
things aro not tolerated in cities, and"
I,ok Angeles should begin to realise that
aho is a city, and a remarkably attractive
one at that. Sacb blemiehes ac that to
which wo allude have a tendency to give
us a provincial air. The proper officials
should ace to it that thia nuisance ia
abated. In all probability the council
will have to act in the premises before
we can look for any relief.

MORE ABOUT STATE DIVISION.
Cogent Reasons Advanced in
Favor of the Qnestion.
A Review of the Political Trades on
tbe Issue.
A Logical Argument Which Covers all
the Points and Which Brings Out
a Number or Features Worthy
of Consideration.
phrXi. H. wAsnnt'Rrt,]
It is one of the marvels of tbe day
how it Is possible for a few prominent
men, and a leas number of newspapers,
here in the southern part of the state, to
hush the people into comparative si
lence upon the all important question of
a division of the state into two common
wealths. While not an active partisan,
the writer has been watching the trend
of public sentiment the past ten years
npon this great, and in many respects,
most vital question to the future welfare
and greatness of this part of California,
and I am fully convinced that at heart,
and in the sound business judgment of
eight out of ten people south of Tehach
ipi, and a majority of those living be*
tween the latter point and the north
line of Fresno county, the people want
to be net off into a separate state govern
ment.
Hut somehow, the politicians of both
the old parties ant together two years
ago. and In etfdct resolved that while we
might sometime in the dim and distant
future want to secede, that at present
we don't wish to, if men of the north
will only heln ue elect our candidate for
Sovcrnor, we'll have him frown the thing
own, and it shall not be made an issue,
nor agitated. Well, the north bad the
wool polled ovor their eyes, and helped
nominate and elect our governor, and he
has made a good one, with the excep
tion that he has done all in hia power to
carry ont the bargain and sale that oold
us out upon that occaciou.
Now for one—and. I think I could say
with propriety for thousanda —I want
to repudiate any such sale, and refuse
any further delivery.
I imagine there was a time in the ex
perience of these alleged (teamen upon
the English vessel recently loot by Are
on the Pacific ocean, when the officers
and men found thero was a? fire in the
hold and their etfurts were first bent to
put it out, failing in that, the hatch
ways were fastened down and every ef
fort m-.tde to reach land, before the fire
should burst out, but alaa, the time
came when the iron bands could no
longer stand tbe pressure, and the cruel
Hames burst forth and sent the poor
mariners afloat upon the perilous voy
age with more chances of death than
life.
thus it must soon be at least, to the
political ambition, of those who try to
to hold down the hatchway, and keep
this burning question of state division
smothered out of sight. It must and
soon will be, a question that cannot be
hid or smothered in the hold of the ship
of state, but will demand the active co
operation, and favor of all classes—St
least in tbe south half of the state.
Before going further I would like to
aay that I am not in favor of state divis
ion upon the stu9.ll ami childish grounds
of lack of justice by our northern breth
ren, or any of tbe small bickerings so
frequently indulged in between newa
papers and prominent o/ non-prominent
men of the two ends of the state. Such
things amount to nothing—are only the
result of mature children making faces
at each other.
The real grounds for a division of the
state of California into two states are
many and meritorious, bat chiefly are:
First—Tiro state is too large and its
climatic conditions nro too varied to
have many laws that, are eieential to
one part apply to other parts of the same
stato with equal advantage, while in
somo respects that which would be of
very groat benefit to one section is either
not necessary or desirable, or might!
prove harmful to the otbor extreme of
tho same; irrigation and email land
holdings, for instance.
Seemd —The productions of the south,
middlo and northern California vary so
greatly there is little interest held .in
common between the two sections.
Third—The holdings Of land in umall
quantities in the south vary ao greatly
there ia little community of interest and
great inequality between the two sec
tions.
Fourth—A wheat ranch of three, five
or ten thousand acres in San Joaquin or
Sacramento valleys is often not assessed
at mote than 30| 50 or 100 acres here.
Fifth---fit" elate is too large in terri
tory to properly admit of-that autonomy
which is for the best advantage anii
true t r conotuy and welfare of its people.
No other state but Texts admits of a
stretch of nearly ten degrees of latitude,
or 750 miles north aud south line within
ita borders.
The talk that magnifies tho greatness
of n largo state, in territory or popula
tion, is only another way of magnifying
the power of monopolies and olfice
holders, and keeping the workings of
the machinery -of stale ami legislation
so much i.irther out of tho sights oi the
people governed. Every true principle
of onr government requires that we
should combine to bring the law-making
and law-executing power just as close to
the people as possible.
Does anyone believe that if the state
of California had not contained more
than .100 or 350 miles squaro (in place of
300x750 miles as it does,) with the capi
tal near the center of population, there
would have, been such an unbroken
series of corruption and bad legislation
the past4o years? Is not nearly every
good citizen almost in despair ol any im
provement while things remain aa they
are? Many legislators, when they get
300 to 500 miles out of sight from
their constituents frequently trust dis
tance to hide their shortcomings and
imperfections. No state should be ter
ritorially so iarge that the people may
not easily know the private life and
conduct of their servants, whether leg
islative or executive.
It may bo well doubted if there is an
other state in the union where there lias
been such a uniform complaint of ignor
ing the will of the people aa in Califor
nia, and thia is only the legitimate fruit
age ot having our laws made and exe
cuted by men bo far away out'of sight,
save to a covey of "local statesmen," for
revenue chiefly within a radius of 100
miles from the Golden Gate.
Monopoly and class legislation has
been written and plastered on almost
every page of California's history and
laws Bince lfilf), and it is time for re
form. But thia can never ba accom
plished while the otato remains such a
vast empire or machine, and compara
tively lew can turn the crank that makea
amljexecntea most of the laws.
The fast legislature was practically as
good or better than the average of its
predecessors. Certainly onr southern
representatives were better, and tbe gov
ernor bas been a vast improvement
npon many of his predecessors. Bat as
a law-making body tbe number of crude,
immature and imperfect measurse
adopted would find no parallel in any
state of tbe same age and half lis size
east of tbe Rocky mountains.
A state composed of the counties of
San Diego, San Bernardino, Riverside,
Orange, Los Angeles, Ventura, Kern,
Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo
would contain a population by the cen
sus of 1890 of 213,643, but if Mono, Inyo,
Tulare, Kings, Fresno, Monterey and
San Benito were added, there would be
300,838; probably by this time 360,000.
In 1800 North Dakota had only 182,719;
South Dakota, 327,848; Wyoming,
60,706; Idaho, 84,220; Montana, 131,769;
Nevada, 45,761 j Oregon, 312.4W, and
Washington, 349,616.
Now, if Southern California could set
up housekeeping with two or three hun
dred thonsand ahe would not be ao very
lonely. Then she might cite some of
the older sisters like the old states of
Delaware with only 167,871, Vermont
332,422, Rhode Island 345,506, and a
number of others who have no larger
populations than this part of our state
and are not growing half bo fast.
I cannot see why any one in the north
half of the state should not be willing at
least for a division, as it must certainly
inure to the better government of the
people there aa well as here for the rea
sons given herein,
There would then be a unity of inter
est, purposes and plans in each state, in
harmony with their interest and tbo
best government by the people and for
tho people.
There would .be two more senators In
the higher branch of congress to look
alter the interests of the same territory,
that now have only two; and it certainly
cannot be said that four good and hon
orable men would not have more influ
ence than two.
Mr. Editor, and good people of South
ern California, a great destiny awaits
the Pacific coast land on these sunset
borders of onr western aea.
The population of tbe old world Is
crowding into the eastern, middle and
northwestern states, and tha very cream
of the enterprising, intelligent and
wealthy American elements, as well as
the European elements, are as always
pushing on to the west, and these gold
en shores are to be tbe paradise of the
world.
No other land on earth has so many
natural advantages to bring out and de
velop the most exalted and highest
type of civilization as the country known
fifa the Pacific eoaat country from San
Diego to Puget eound.
While all in great and good, that which
is embraced within the territory desig
nated as Southern California has in many
respects a climate, soil and productions
which render it peculiarly necessary
that it be a state by itself.
But it is apparent tbh ia not to be ac
complished without great and persistent
effort. Any matter affecting such great
interests requires correspondingly great
efforts for their accomplishment.
At another time I may point ont some
of tlia ways by which this may be done.
CAPTAIN TARBLE'S DEATH.
Tho Demise of a Well Known Resident of
the City.
His many friends and acquaintances
will be shocked to hear of the death of
Captain Myron F. Tarble, which oc
cured at 3:15 o'clock yeeterday morning
at his residence on Washington street
and Logan avenue. The Captain had
recently been appointed traveling pas
senger agent of the Southern Pacific
company, and was taken ill at Redlahds
on Saturday with a combination of
quinsy and pneumonia. Remedies
proved ineffectual and he steadily sank
until death came.
He was born in Aurora, Illinois, and
was 47 years of age. He served in an
Illinois regiment throngh the war. After
the war he settled in Chicago, where he
became identified with politics and held
many offices of honor and emoluments.
Coming to this state seven years ago he
soon made himself known, by hia inde
fatigable industry and urbanity. He
was a man whom men liked to meet and
be friendly with. There was not the
slightest tinge of affectation or hypocriey
about him. At one time he was an in
spector of the Chino beet sugar ranch,
