THE HERALD'S CITY CIRCULATION
THE HERALD'S CIRCULATION IN THE CITY OF
LOS ANGELES IS LARGER THAN THAT OP THE
EXAMINER OR THE EXPRESS AND SECOND ONLY
TO THAT OF THE TIMES.
The penalty for a homicide in a recent case tried at
Honolulu was a fine of $1. We may soon hear of a cut
In the figure to 98 cents.
It is a matter of no consequence whether the golden
■pike to be driven in the last tie on the Salt Lake rail
road is auriferous or metaphorical. California is the
Golden State, but it is not solid gold.
The Russian zemstvos seem to have no fear of the
mailed fist of the government, judging from the hot
communications they send to St. Petersburg. Perhaps
they depend on their name to turn the edge of the Cos
sack's sword in case of an attack.
The proper time has arrived for the official control of
San Pedro harbor by a board of commissioners. The
Los Angeles chamber of commerce has properly taken
the initiative in the matter by ordering a bill to be
drafted aiming at that purpose for submission to the
According to the St. Louis Republic, the president is
scheduled for a Jack rabbit hunt in Texas the latter
part of March. This shows the mollifying influence of
life in the White House. Mountain lions and grizzly
bears were his favorite game not long ago. Now, it is
the jack rabbit and later it may be the cotton tall or
It must send, a shiver up the spinal column of
Britannia to be told by the geologists that the coal sup
ply of the kingdom will be exhausted In about 450 years.
But the kindly assurance is given that America will have
a supply sufficient for a few thousand years longer —
sufficient to give a longer warming than was given tem
porarily in years beginning with 1775 and 1812.
The report of the phenomenal cold. wave in the east
causes grave apprehension regarding the .fate of the
Florida orange belt. It is stated that there has been
freezing temperature in that state, falling to "12 and 15
degrees on the middle gulf coast." Such temperature
would be fatal to the orange industry, as shown by the
widespread freezing of the Florida groves a few years
It is enough to discourage the ablest teller of fish
Btories at Catalina to read that report which the cable
steamer Burnside brought to Tacoma. In trying to
raise a section of cable it was found to be almost im
possible, but at last the effort succeeded, disclosing a
great whale with its jaws fast on the cable. It is the
biggest fish story that has been floated since Jonah's
Dr. Lyman Abbott said, in the course of a recent
lecture, that if Adam had lived 6000 years and saved $10
a day he would not at last have had a fortune equal to
the $100,000,000 of the late Cornelius Vanderbllt. But if
Adam had understood the compound Interest cinch that
is worked by some money lenders in California, with
customers to match, the Garden of Eden would not have
t>een big enough for his stack of gold coin.
No sane person would think of dropping a dime into
the ocean purposely. Yet that is the equivalent of what
a person does in paying 75 cents a month for a news
paper when another one, equally as good and in many
respects much better, costs only 65 cents a month. The
Herald, at the smaller figure, gives "all the news that's
fit to print," in the most readable shape. It is always
clean, honest and brimful of light for Los Angeles,
Southern California and the whole Golden State. Think
of that wasted dime. "Take care of tho dimes and the
dollars will take care of themselves."
A REPUBLICAN MACHINE SCHEME
It is asserted that the managers of the Republican
machine in this city are covertly playing into tho hands
ot tho corporations In a scheme to defeat tho charter
amendments in tho legislature. With this object they
■re said to be demanding that the mayor shall give a
pledge covering the appointments he shall make for
commissioners of public works, particularly the presi
dent of the board. In case of the indorsement of the
This is a characteristic nchnme of the coterie of
politicians who manipulate Republican politics In this
city. True to the corporate Interests with which they
•re affiliated, they now endeavor to thwart the will of
the people by accomplishing in the legislature what th«y
failed to do when they turned down the charter amend
ments at the outset of the municipal campaign.
That they will fail in the attempt lo uho the mayor
•s a party to any such purpose The Herald feels qulto
confident. Tho Issue between honest city government
and the Interests of the group of pollticlana who have
no thought above political spoils is one which the mayor
was sure to be confronted with at an early stage of his
administration. That issue has been presented sooner
than was expected, but there is no reason to doubt that"
t will be met, with the firmness with which the mayor

OUR PACIFIC TRADE EXPANSION
The Pacific coast states h&r© a larger relative Inter*
est than any other states of tho Union In tho new move
ment aiming to secure a complete reorganization of the
United States consular system. Thla movement was
started four or flve years ago, in fact, but it has lacked
sufficient momentum to make headway in congress. It
ia now revived by the National Business league of Chi
cago in a memorial addressed to President Roosevelt
A bill introduced by Senator Lodge in 1900, which
has been "hanging fire" In congress ever since, meets
the requirement of the Chicago business men and those
of all other cities that have been heard from on the
subject. The chief features of the Lodge bill make
provision for the substitution of salaries for fees in
payment of all consular service. Second, adoption of the
merit syntem in appointments and promotions, tenure
of office to continue only during efficiency and conduct
of the highest grade. Third, complete Americanization
of the consular service. It also is required that "con
sul* must be familiar with either the French, German
or Hpnnlnh language," an obvious necessity In a foreign
The San Francisco board of trade, recognizing the
importance of the provisions of tho Lodge bill, Indorsed
it strongly directly after its introduction in the senate.
Similar organizations in all the other leading cities of
the United States havo taken like action. Tho subject
is now urged afresh because of the growing demand for
reform in a matter that is vital to American trade in
In a recent address delivered before the Civil Service
Reform league at Washington the needed points of
reform in tho consular service were succinctly stated
by James T. Dv Bots of the department of state. Ho
said, speaking of the vices of the present system, "they
are its pernicious fee system, its Inadequate and badly
adjusted salaries, its uncertain tenure of oftlce, and,
above all, the startling number of foreigners who hold -
positions in the service."
Startling Indeed is the statement when substantial ed
by the figures submitted by Mr. Dv Bols, taken from
the official records of the state department. Here aro
some of them: "Today 567 men of foreign birth and for
eign citizenship are holding places in the American
consular service, 80 per cent of whom have no sympa
thy with our institutions and policies, and 70 per cent
of whom, from a natural condition of tilings, are op
posed to the expansion of American trade. Today 290
foreigners occupy our consular agencies, out of a total
of 395, and 120 foreigners occupy our consular clerkships
out of a total of 180. In Germany 60 per cent of our
vice and deputy consulships are in the hands of for
eigners, while in the British empire we have 114 vice
and deputy consuls, eighty-three of whom belong to all
kinds of nationalities except our own. "
The remedy for this glaring defect is readily per
ceived. First, every American consul should be an
American citizen, imbued with the Yankee ambition to
push the Interests of his country to the front "in season
and out of season." Second, he should have an ade
quate fixed salary, and all fees received by him should
go to the United States treasury. Third, he should not
feel that be will be summarily kicked out of his position
if a change occurs in the political complexion of the ad
As remarked at the outset, this question of reorgani
zation of the consular service is peculiarly Important
to the Pacific coast states because the field for Ameri
can industrial enterprise in countries within reach of our
ports is comparatively new. Much of the success ex
pected in our competition with foreign nations in the
orient and in the southern republics bordering the Pa
cific will depend upon the' efficiency of the American
OFFSET TO SUNNY CLIMATE
The climatic attractions of Los Angeles cannot with
stand such offsets as that of the audacious robbery early
yesterday morning in a popular cafe. That exploit was
of a kind that would be expected only in a "wayback"
town. It was of the kind, in fact, found in the lurid
fiction of dime novels and yellow newspapers. In the
conventional hold-up style two masked robbers entered
a cafe, armed with big revolvers, lined up the proprietor"
of the • place and his four waiters, secured more than
$200 in cash and got away safely.
The reading of such a report at the breakfaßt table
is calculated to raise the query in the tourist's mind
whether Los Angeles is not a bit too lively, not to say
exciting, for the nerves of a quiet easterner. The tourist
is apt to reflect that a similar episode is liable to happen
almost anywhere, and he is not likely to relish the
thought that he may be personally invited to look into
the muzzle of a revolver while being relieved of his
It is a fact well known to the police that the city is
inrested this winter with the greatest number of non
resident criminals within its history. Jn addition to the
normal inflow of such characters, attracted by the large
number of respectable tourists, there are now present
many followers of tho races, who also follow criminal
professions. Many of the recent robberies, and notably
tho bold one which occurred yesterday morning just
after the midnight hour, indicate the handiwork of skill
ful and experienced criminals.
It is a physical Impossibility, of course, for the
meager police force of this city to assure protection
against the expl6lts of such criminals. The area of
Los Angeles is about forty-five' square miles, equaling
that^.of Now York city before the lato consolidation.
In view of the increasing boldness of the criminal class,
howevor, it would seem advisable to increase tho police
force temporarily during the period when tho city is
infested by professional criminals from abroad.
Strong minded New York women of tho Society for
Political Study demand "anil-pauperism laws that Khali
restrict the propagation of the human species." It 1»
claimed that "such laws would furnish the solution of
the child labor question, of overcrowded schools," etc.
But would not shutting off propagation make human
existence rather lonesome by and by?
Tho startling report is mad« by the state board of
health that "of the 1361 reported deaths in December
one-fourth wero sacrificed to want of proper informa
tion among the people and proper sanitary laws and
organization." It seems incrodiblo that any such pro
portion of deaths should lie attributable to those causes.
The Canadians seem to have acquired the political
"landslide" or "tidal wave" habit from their Yankee
neighbors. The complete upset of the Liberals by the
Conservatives in the Ontario elections held Wednesday
recalls the political jar experienced in the United States
last November 8.
Think of 150,000 New York railway commuters, living
in the suburban Long Island and New Jersey towns,
who could not get to the city because the railway trains
were stuck In snowdrifts. All over the eastern states,
down to the gulf shore, extraordinary winter weather
