The Interstate commerce commission has found
that the Santa Fe Railway company granted unlawful
rebates when Paul Morton, now secretary of the navy,
was vice president of the company. What says Paul?
The Chinese New Year does not make its advent
suddenly as in the case of the year of the Christian
era. The Chinese event began yesterday, but it takes
ten days for the celestial New Year to get fairly started.
Secretary Taft reports that meats for the army
in the Philippines have been purchased from Australian
dealers the last two years at about half the American
prices. Why not give the American people a show in
that trustless beef?
Southern California is in its most picturesque garb
now. The earth is carpeted with luxuriant vegetation
In brightest green and the distant mountains are
wearing snowy caps. Tha rainfall Is abundant and
everybody Is happy.
The angry behavior of the ocean off the near-by
coast and the peril of certain navigators of tiny craft
are reminders that the Pacific ocean is not always as
amiable as its name implies. But ordinarily its con
duct is above reproach.
The latest charge against hypnotism is that it led a
man to commit a forgery. The court failed to under
stand, however, that the peculiar influence was a valid
plea in extenuation, concluding that two years in stato
prison might operate as a curative.
• As an incident of the zero weather in the east there
are many reports from the cities about Injuries to per
sons from slipping on icy walks. Imagine a Los An
geles housekeeper sprinkling ashes on the sidewalk
while striving to maintain the perpendicular.
A shameful and disgusting revelation is that of the
marriage in the county jai! of a negro woman to one
of her race under sentence of life imprisonment for
murder. Whoever is officially responsible for tolerating
that exhibition should be ousted from the public service.
An association of Chicago ministers is posing in
court as prosecutor of a woman artist who paints china
and has been offering pieces of her work as prizes
in euchre parties. Why should such ministers strain
at a euchre gnat while they swallow the camel of
Chicago gambling iniquity?
It is a good suggestion that the school census of
Los Angeles for this year be broadened so as to make
a complete enumeration of the population. Postmaster
Flint is particularly desirous of having such a census
because of its bearing on -his allotment of letter carriers,
but there are other reasons why it would be desirable.
Nevada — even Nevada — shows signs of the sweep of
a religious wave over the rocks and ,the sage brush. The
snow state supports its public system in part by funds
received for licenses to permit gambling. Now a bill
is before the legislature which, If passed, "will result
in entirely abolishing gambling in the state." Et tv, Ne
vada!
As the result of a religious revival in Jersey City a
railway inspector, in high standing with his employers,
confessed that he and six other employes "had for
months been systematically robbing freight cars." This
disclosure suggests a side field of possibilities as an
outcome of the present religious awakening in Los
Angeles.
Denver offers a plea In mitigation concerning the
charges of ballot box stuffing. There was not as much
of such Btufflng as has been claimed. The evidence
shows that many ballots had never been in the ballot
box because there was not room for them. It was not
thought necessary to put all the illegal ballots in the
boxes when they could be fraudulently counted just
as well. ■ :;;- : 4r :
.' It is discreditable to Los Angeles that its com

In such affairs as street cleaning and garbage dispo

It shows a willingness on the part of these progressive

be needed, the fact Is a severe reflection upon the city
government. ',V.
The baking powder agitation which raised more
things than bread in Missouri ia likely to break out
in California. A bill is before the legislature aiming
to "prohibit the use of unhealthy (sic) chemicals or
substances In the preparation of any article used in
the preparation of food for human beings." The bill
appears to be commendable," but it is intimated that a
repetition of the Missouri baking powder ruction will
result if it passes.
Chicago reports the discovery by a local astronomer
of a spot on the surface of the sun with a diameter of
80,000 miles. That is considerable of a gpot, as con
sidered from the mundane standpoint, as the diameter
•stated la more than ten times that of the earth. But
suspicion attaches to the discovery because, as re
ported, "the spot is egg-shaped and can be easily dls
terned through a smoked glass." The egg and glass
are suggestive of observations over a Chicago bar.
LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY A , W*.
CALIFORNIA A RAILWAY BUFFER
The need of enlarged power for the interstate com
merce commission, as provided in bills now before con
gress, la illustrated In the loss sustained by California
shippers. Because of disagreement between the man
agers of the transcontinental lines and those of the
Southern roads east of the Mississippi It costs more to
transport California products to Kentucky, for Instance,
than to New York. This utterly unwarranted discrim
ination has been the subject of many protests from Pa
cific coast shippers, but no attention has ever been
paid to them. Whatever explanation is vouchsafed by
the railway companies is of the kind familiar In tho
explanations of quarrels between boys. Each side
claims that the other is wholly blamable.
For the first time we now have a circumstantial
statement of the issue from the viewpoint of the south
ern railway companies. A representative of one of tha
chief systems east of the Mississippi and south of the
Ohio river is in this city with a party of railway officials
on a tour of observation. According to this authority
the southern managers proposed to those of the trans
continental lines, About three years ago, a plan for
harmonizing their respective Interests. The plan was
accepted substantially by the other side, as alleged,
when a rupture occurred as described thus by the south
ern manager; "A compromise adjustment between con
necting lines was reached and the tariff was about to
be printed and distributed when notice was served on
the lines cast of the Mississippi river and south of
the Ohio that certain exceptions of the rates in botlr
directions would be canceled effective December 15,
1904. Since that time no change has occurred in the
situation."
Because of a hitch in the compromise over an ap
parently trivial matter the" two interests have been
clashing for three years, largely at the dxpense of Cali
fornia shippers. That Is only one side of the story,
of course, which puts the blame upon the transconti
nental companies. As explained from the viewpoint
of the latter the southern companies must bear all the
responsibility. Each side practically admits that the
stubborn failure to adjust the Issue causes gross in
justice to California industries. The rights of our
shippers have for three years been ground between tho
upper and nether millstones of railway rivalry.
The only hope of release from such tyranny, .of
which this is only one example, lies in the control of
the rate-making power by the interstate commerce com
mission. If the plan were adopted which Is', provided
for in the bills now pending the kink would bo promptly
taken out of the issue whereby Cajifornia is made to
suffer.
GERMAN AND AMERICAN STRIKES
An interesting parallel is noted between the strike
settling methods now urged by the German govern
ment and the one fathered by President Roosevelt in the
case of the great strike of coal miners, two years ago.
The parallel begins with the sameness of Industrial
lines, the coal industry, and with the vast number of
miners involved, more than 200,000 in each case. The
method adopted for adjusting the strike in the anthra
cue coal field is still so fresh in the public mind that
there is no need for further allusion to it here.
The German government, probably through the in
itiative of the emperor, advised both employers and
miners to submit the issues between them to arbi
tration. The parallel with the American coal strike is
seen at this point in the refusal of the employers at
first to listen to the suggestions. They declared, rather
indignantly, that the duty of the government In the
premises was confined to preserving order and pro
tecting life and property at the scene of trouble. The
miners, on the contrary, evinced a willingness to submit
their case to arbitrators, nnd later they went to the ex
tent of adopting a resolution expressing their read!-'
ness "to abide by any judgment a parliamentary com
mission of inquiry might render."
The whole question at issue in the German coal in
dustry now is likely to be settled by^a commission.
The only difference between the plan to be adopted
and the one employed in the case of the American
miners is in the method of selecting the commission. By
consent of both sides President Roosevelt chose the
commission to adjust the anthracite coal strike, while
the German commission will be a parliamentary crea
tion. And the outcome in the German case promises
to be as satisfactory as it was In the American case.
The point of special interest in this practical fol
lowing of the American precedent by Germany is the
success resulting from tentative interposition of official
authority in securing peaceful settlements of labor dis
putes. The hope is encouraged that by such quasi
official action, in the general interest of the public, a
long step may be taken toward the ultimate avoidance
of prolonged and disastrous contests between labor and
capital. ' •
PAY OF LEGISLATORS
Two distinct constitutional amendments providing
for the extension of the legislative term have been sub
mitted by Los Angeles members of the assembly/They
agree In the proposition to extend the term from sixty
to eighty working clays, but they differ in the question
of compensation to members. In one case It Is pro
posed lo make a flat term salary of $1,000 while in the
other case a per diem allowance of $10 is named, which
would bo equivalent to $800 for the eighty-day term.
The present pay of legislators is $8 a day, which gives
$480 for the term of sixty days.
The question of increased pay for members of the
legislature is not a new one. If the allowance were
merely a question of legislative conscience the figure
would have been tilted up long ago. In considering
the subject a deal of light can be thrown upon it by
reference to the compensation of legislators in other
states.
Only four states pay their legislators as much as
Is contemplated in either of the suggested California
amendments. Pennsylvania, to which is accorded the
discredit for having the most corrupt of American legis
lators, pays Its members $1500 for each session. New
York pays $1500 per annum, Ohio $000 per annum, and
Illinois $1000 per session. In the per diem class Oregon,
Vermont, Michigan and Kansas pay only $3 a day. The
figure Is $4 a day in Alabama, Georgia, North Caro
lina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia and
West Virginia. In the $5 a day class are Idaho, In
diana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Mis
souri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South
Dakota, Texas, Washington and Wyoming. Maine pays
its legislators $150 a year and New Hampshire $200.
These examples of rates ruling in other states will
give the people of California some idea of the merit
of a demand for $800 to $1000 for California statesmen,
plus mileage and "patronage."
Obviously the three new parts of the superior court
should be housed, as the present ones are, in the county
court house. Better provide for some of the other
county offices elsewhere, The courts ehould have the
prior right in the court house, and the superior court
parts, especially, all should be under one roof.

WORKINGMAN CRITICISES
THE CIVIL SERVICE LAW
He Claims It It Unfair, Unjust and
Against the Interests of the
Taxpayers
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 3.— [Editor
Herald]— Two week* ago In the Herald
I asked the question, "What Improve
ment has civil service been In the man
agement of the offices of 'our city gov
ernment In the last two yearn?" So
far I have not been enlightened on the
subject. The Herald, editorially com
menting on the BHme nt that time,
prophesied no response would be made
find none has been made. Then If no
defense can be made of thin farcical
part of our city charter, why do
we nnk or expect the legislature now in
Reunion to pass the amendment to p'tt
the police and fire departments under
this deceptive service?
It will be n grand mistake, nnd will,
inside of a very few yearn, create dis
cord nnd destroy the efficiency and dis
cipline of those departments. Look
nt the horde of Incompetent employes
wild to be graftera and whnt not, in
the street, health nnd assessor's offices.
And because they are under civil ser
vice they must stay there.
The recently elected heads of depart
ments cannot remove them. And right
here I compliment Assessor Lewis for
having backbone enough to try to force
the deadwood out of his office. Al
though It is costing him a world of
trouble, he is at least partially succeed
ing, The civil service commission in
itself cannot remove one of those em
ployes without appealing to some out
side assistance. Some one must make
charges, otherwise the commission Is
powerless and the grafters aro safe.
The victory won at the polls in the
defeat of Werdln Is not complete by
any means. All his thrifty deputies
are there yet, nodding and smiling with
the same contractors who in the lust
two years did the rotteneSt work that
was ever done or palmed oft on the
taxpayers of this city. And they will
stay there as long as they live unless
outside assistance conies to the relief of
the civil service commission.
Yet when it comes to putting on men,
then they don't need any assistance.
They know all about the qualifications
required and are merely anxious that
no one works for the city unless he
has the civil service brand on his col
lar. The street department a few days
ago was notified that old Rubben, who
is temporarily employed to direct the
moving of buildings, had not taken the
civil service examination. And what
is galling to us workingmen is this,
that we are expected and are prepared
to direct and perform all the labor
necessary upon the highways and by
ways of this city in a good workman
like manifer and to the satisfaction of
the street superintendent who would
like to employ us. But no, we must
first go to the civil service commission
and be examined as to what we know
about work — by a commission made up
of lawyers and doctors who It is safe
to say never did a day's work in their
lives. This Is a stunner to us.

UNIVERSITY FINANCES
Examination of Embezzler's Books
Criticised by Berkeley Regent
By Assoc-lute.l Pie«». '..viVf':
BERKELEY, Feb. 3.— The senatorial
committee continued its investigation
Into the financial methods of the Uni
versity of California this afternoon.
Regent Foster, by a series of questions,
attempted to prove that former Auditor

tigation of McKpwen's books, and as
the regents depended upon the auditor,
Foster held that the board should not
be held responsible because McKowen's
