PUT NO SALOON BEHIND .THE FENCE
The licenso to sell liquor hehind the
fence on Alameda stroet, yesterday re
quested of tho polico commissioners hy
Theodore Bauer, ought not to be granted.
It aimed to give to Bauer a monopoly on
the whisky business in a district and
amid surroundings where a public saloon
should not ho permitted to exist at all.
The very argument advanced for granting
the license ought to provo a bar to its
being issued. Tlio theory that the popu
lation in the plague spot mentioned is
bound to have liquor and that the doni
zens of the locality will publicly run at
large to procure it promiscuously over the
city if they cannot get it In the vicinity
of tbcir immediate stamping ground, is
untrue, and if true is not tentative. Tho
polico commissioners have the right and
it would bo their duty to rovoke the
license ol any saloon outside of the pre
scribed territory selling liquor to these
Women. Permitting the stuff to he sold
by Bauer will I"' legalizing tho trallic hy
the city, and customers stated In advance
to he of the very lowest of the riffraff ol
the class which is at its best dangerous
to the community ut largo. Bauer at
present owns the district in question, and
has a mortgage Oppn the souls of all of
its population. The granting to him of
the saloon license he has re guested will
Vastly' increase his power and Will make
htm a man dangerous to (he community
nt largci, especially in matters to be de
cided by the franchise.
If the Ministerial union of Los Angeles
is really anxious to be of practical service,
let its several members at once bestir
themselves to the end that the proposed
Bauer saloon license In the rear of tho
Alameda street fence, with its attendant
possihle| terrible consequences, may nut
THE ASIATIC TRADE
Consul Barrett, whose report was
commented on at length yesterday, gives
our manufacturers and jobbers some I
wholesome advice ns to the methods they
should adopt if they would secure any
amount of Asiatic trade. What he has to
say is very aptly told, nnd if our mer
chants would hood it, much can ho
learned therefrom which would otherwise
have to he learned hy expensive expert*
dents. Hie Suggestions are as follows:
First—European firms will give practi
cally the same terms of credit io the pur
chasing merchants in Japan, China, Si
am, etc., as they will to customers at
Tho American iirm so seldom consents
to like terms that oriental buyers men*
tion it as a hindrance to trade.
Second—European lirnis through hank
ing agencies or other means know the
financial standing of thu principal im
porters, and upon receipt of order by tele
graph or letter can act at once.
Tho American tirm, before forwarding
an order, must go through the red tape of
requiring proof of reliability, which usu
ally means the deposit ol a ccrtilied
check, equal to the purchase prico, in
some bank, tho loss of the use of the
money for many months,and a prolonged
Third—The European linn, wishing to
crealo a market fur its wares, will often
eetol out a large consignment at its own
risk to a responsible meronant to sell un
der most favorable terms. This custom
is popular and gaining ground,
American linns usually deem this too
great a risk.
Fourth -With tho present low rate of
exchange, the European firm will usually
give the merchant time in payment to
take advantage ol advance in ezohange.
Ntimorous eastern linns are authority
for the statement that American export
ers do not appreciate these conditions
and will not make such terms.
Fifth—lll packing and shipping goods
to the orient, in view of the distance and
exposure to peculiar climatic conditions,
European linns aro extremely careful.
There aro continual complaints that the
average American linn does not use the
great car cessary.
Sixth —European lirius send their clov
ere.-i men to the orient to study the con
ditions and needs of different localities,
ami mon who are not discouraged by the
riurd work required to develop a market,
Only .1 few American linns have special
first-class men in the orient, while too
often some ot those that 00 come have a
"know it all" manner that does more
harm than good, and who lack persist
ency mingled with tnet. I am glad to
leoord, however, tbat where there are
Worthy representatives excellent results
Seventh—American exporters in devel
opinL' this lield must realize who are their
Competitors, must meet them on the lines
the fattel have established ami with their
own tactics,and must not give up because
the lesnlts are not especially lemunera-
Uve from tho start. German exporters
ore now sharing the trade with their Eng
lish competitors, because they persisted
under conditions at lirst adverse and
Eighth—Leading European firms.in ad
dition to selling .1 iroot to the oriental mer
chants iiuui thu home establishment,
have their own houses in the leading
ports up and down tho whole
Coast, which do n large and incieasing
business. There a-e so few real Ameri
can homes on the Asiatic coast that they
can bo counted on one's lingors. in Ja
pan there are a fe v prosperous firms, but
in China the number is very small. Yec
in both countries there is room for nu
merous well managed branches or indi
Ninth—Chambers of commerce, boards
of trade, banks and banking agencies at
home should nuiKe a special effort to ob
tain full and reliable data in regard to
the oriental trade possibilities and condi
tions. At present even many of the
largest houses und manufacturing firms
In the United States seem to he entirely
at sea about this part of tbe world and
no approved system of securing or ob
taining Information has been adopted.
It is most difficult for the consular lepre
sentativi s of tbe United states to answer
every letter of Inquiry in detail, and tell
each firm what prospects it may havo
to develop its individual trade, but they
car. and do gladly give full and reliable
data through the depaitmenl of state in
consular and other reports. Were consuls
to answer every letter specifically, or at
tempt to do all that is often requested,
they would be obliged to employ more
clerks than the government would sanc
tion and to convert their consulates into
con.mission houses. As it is, however, I
believe Hint they give all the information
possible ami will willingly make extended
reports on subjects, outlined by chambers
of commerce or requested through the
state department and not covered hy the
regular reports just mentioned.
Consul Barrett calls attention to the
fact that European merchants are at an
advantage in that they have numerous
competing steamship lines which offer
special advantages in the way of low
freight rates. He also shows >he advan
tages which might arise from the estab
lishment ofjnew steamship lines from the

KILLING OF BANNOCKS
The Jackson Hole Outrages to Be Investi

WASHINGTON, August 20.— The ques
tion of what action should be taken by
the government in regard to the killing
of tho Bannock Indians in the Jackson's
Hole country on July 18th, has been re
fetred to the department of justice. It
is understood that a communication on
the subject was forwarded thcro today,
which recites the circumstances in the
case, and ends with a strong recommen
dation for an investigation by tne depart
It is understood that the attorney-gen
eral was asked to send special agents to
Jackson's Hole, and that the services of
the Indian inspectors would bo offered as
assistants. Agent Tet„r will not form
part of thu commission, as ho has taken
so prominent a part in the troubles that
the settlers are greatly prejudiced against

PAVING AND PI.ASKING
The Difference in the Price or City Bridge
City Engineer Compton has just com
pleted the estimates showing a compari
son in the cost of replanking and paving
of all of the bridges in tho city. The city
engineer in his figures shows the cost oi
the work if ordered done nrith lumber,
and the difference if asphalt is used. The
estimated cost is figured to cover a period
of ten years. To plank the Buena Vista
: street bridge will cost $2700, and to
i pa ve the structure the cost will be $2116;
jto plank the Downey avenue bridge it
: will cost $4700. and to pave the bridge
the cost will be $1800; to plank the
Kuhrts street bridge the cost will be
$ 1620, and to pave it the cost will be
$lhi i; to plank the Macy street bridge the
cost will be $1380. to pavo it the cost will
be $H.s.">; to plank Ihe Aliso street bridge

bridge the cost will be $6306, to pave it
the cost will be $6396; to plank the Sev
enth street bridge ths cost will be $1218,
ito pave it $1130. The estimates of the
Ninth street bridge ate the same as the
hgnres of the Seventh street bridge.

exception being the First street bridge.

Sixth Street Poaiibllltles
Editor Herald:—ln this active, busy
beehive, the one idea, financially speak
ing, is to "Git thar, Eli." Today there is
a very general disposition to overlook
tbe greater possibilities of tomorrow.
We have evidences of this in tbe depreci
ation of properties north of Temple street,
and we have further proof of it when we
see our city officials scattering our city
buildings instead of concentrating them
upon an entire block in an ornamental
shape, not alone for convenience, but
witn a view of beautifying our c:ty for
the future. Along thil line of tbOught,
the property owners along Sixth street
should learn a lesson from the "soiort
slghteilness" of Temple street owners,
and tbat, too, before the city takes a
grand leap southward. The broken link
in this street from Pearl 'vest ward to
Figueroa should be immediately repaired.
Sixth street from Figueroa westward to
the west line of our city is 82 feet wide.
The obstruction in the way to open Sixth
from Figueroa to Pearl, ai per our city
map. is 1)00 feet, should he c ondornned
and immediately removed; and to make
this line grand continuous business and
residence street from the east to the we,',
line of nur city wood not cost t he property
owners6ocents per foot extr-i* l'nis en
tire lino would be sought after as brie of
the choicest electric car lines. Bixthstreet
westward from Figueroa would com
mand the very highest price for resilience
lots, it being sufficiently elevated to over
look the tops of houses on Bonnie Brae,
the entire southern portion of our city,
including the ocean and CahuengO valley.
Add to this the fact that the "Grown
Hill" has a frontage of 450 feet on Sixth
and includes nine acres of ground, and,
all things considered, it is tbe choicest
natural spot in Southern California for a
magnificenttonrisl hotel, In addition to
this nine acres there is nine acres adjoin
ing it on the west, running tv Burlington
avenue, through wbioh there is a depres
sion which colli 1 be made into a lake.
Add to this the ornamentation of all tne
ground not covered by the hotel, and il
would be the Hotel del Monte of Southern
California. All it requires is for Sixth
street people to "git up and git." LLI.

cal gossip is connecting my name with
the mayoralty of the greater I os Ange
These gossips are evidently unfriendly
to annexation and are seeking to injure
the cause. Were 1 eligible I woulu not
accept the oflice of mayor— much less be
come a candidate therefor.
I favor annexation, believing it tc be
for the universal good, and have no self
ish interest to BUbserre. Sincerely.
M. T. ALLEN. \

MRS. HOLLIDAY HELD
She la Insanely Infatuated With Her
Mrs. F'annie L. Holliday was yesterday
examined before Township Justice Young
on a charge of Having threatened to burn
the house and destroy the property of her
brother-in-law, Edward P. Holiday, be
sides threatening him with personal vio
lence. The facts of the case were re
ported at length in The Herald yesterday
morning. llolliday and his wife testified
to the fact that the sister-in-law had in
their absen"e tried to wreck thsir bouse,
detailing the damage done. They also
testified that they believed she was in
sane, being infatuated with the brother
in-law. Tho defendant then took the
stand and admitted ail the allegations in
the complaint. The woman is eiuite pre
possessing in appearance, but is certainly
weak-minded, if she is not positively in
sane. She ia madly infatuated with her
brother-in-law at any rate. Mrs. HolM*
day was ['laced under $1000 bonds to keep
the paece, in default of which she was
sent to jail. A complaint will piobaoly
bo sworn out against her for insanity.
Mrs. Edward F. Holliday is a daughter
of the late Senator Thurman ol Ohio, and
is a very wealthy woman. She has been
three times married, her two former hus
bands being alive. The first was a naval
officer, from ivhom she got a divorce,
and the second was an Italian iflioer,
from whom she also secured a divorce,
j She is married to Holliday by contract.
