LOS ANGELES HERALD} TUESDAY MORNMG, APRIL 4. »sos.
THE COUNCIL STANDS BY THE PEOPLE
The Herald gald yesterday morning, "Loa Angeled
expects every member of Its city council to do hts duty
today." That was relative to the Issue with the mayor
in the public utility ordinance.
In this morning's Herald appears tho sharp re
sponse to that reminder.
It Is found in the passage of the ordinance over
the veto without a dissenting vote.
The council did its duty promptly and completely.
No public official deserves etpedal praise for doing
simply his duty, but nt times he does deserve euch
praise for doing it exceptionally well. The council has
done particularly good service for the city and therefore
it deserves the thanks of the community.
The Herald did not doubt the outcome of the veto
issue, although It took pains to strengthen the hands
*of the council by pointing out the fallacy of the mayor's
objection to the ordinance. There could have been no
other result without glaring stultification on the part of
every councilman. Having voted affirmatively on the
ordinance after the fullest consideration of its merits,
the act of standing by that vote was a matter of course.
The issue between the mayor and the council, thus
summarily closed in the* interest of the community, was
regrettable. The present situation Is still more regret
table, for the reason that It creates unfortunate friction
between the executive and legislative branches of the
city government. It is not likely that there will be any
material breach, however,' as the mayor's good sense
should lead him to acquiesce gracefully 'and call the
Incident closed. _ t ..
There can be no question about the Incidental bene
fits resulting from the council's action in thla matter.
It gives the people promise of such councllmanic loyalty
to public interests as they have, not felt for years. It
establishes a precedent that causes a sense of relief
and Inspires confidence for the future. .
Upon this outcome of the long struggle for restraint
and regulation of the lighting monopoly, particularly,
The Herald congratulates ■ the people of Los Angeles.
From first to last, in this issue, The Herald has fought
the battle of the people single handed, so far as the
press is concerned. The victory thus gained is the flrst
effective blow to monopoly that has been struck here in
many years. It is a. decisive present gain for the com
munity and a bright rainbow of promise for the future.
LET POLITICS LIE FALLOW
William J. Bryan announces publicly that he is
engaged in the work of "getting together the aggressive
elements of the party in active preliminary work for
the great battle of 1908."
The announcement Is consonant with all that Mr.
Bryan has said and done publicly since the late election.
He has acted upon the assumption that the overwhelm
ing defeat of Judge Parker made William J. Bryan again
the logical leader of the party and the coming man for
the contest in 1908. . .
Mr. Bryan declares that the movement which he
now undertakes aims to "get back to the people, to put
the radical and more progressive element in more com
plete control." He says "the purpose Is to begin at the
bottom, letting the rank and file have a voice in the
national convention by writing the platform at home
for the national convention to ratify."
But is not that program the very one that was fol
lowed by the Democratic party in 1896 and again in
1900? William J. Bryan himself was the platform In
the former year, as it was his Individuality i that stam
peded the convention and gave him the nomination.
The convention of 1900 was Bryanesque in every detail
and Mr. Bryan was the architect of the platform. '■ :]■ ;.,'
But this Is no time to discuss national politics of
1968. As a remarkably astute politician Mr. Bryan sees
the personal advantage of a long-distance preparation
for control of the Democratic ticket and platform in the
next presidential contest. "The people," however, for
whom he manifests such warm affection, meaning the
rank and file of the .Democratic party, prefer a long
political rest. They have not yet fully recovered from
the effects of last November's cyclone. They had a
surfeit of politics in the campaign of 1904 and they have
no more present appetite for a repetition than the
storied person had for crow — "could eat it, but didn't
hanker for it"
Let national politics, so far as the Democratic party
is concerned, lie fallow for three years. The Republican
party has full swing now, with plenty of rope, and If it
does not hang itself within three years it will be likely
to get into such a tangle that the Democratic party can
capture it in 1908. J'|?vv
ANOTHER CASE OF SELF-HYPNOTYZING
In the question of the judicial appointments for Los
Angeles county Gov. Pardee assumes that the naming
of persons for the judgeships is entirely a matter of his
He even goes to the length of treating with con
tempt the urgent appeals made to him for action on the
ground of extreme pressure in the business of the local
courts. The business of every part of the superior
court is congested, even to the extent of embarrassing
the present judges. In a moment the governor could
relieve the pressure by naming his favorites for the
There can be only one rational explanation for the
governor's . mysterious action in this case, and it is
anything but creditable to the chief executive of Cali
Governor Pardee is known to be self-hypnotized
with the idea that he is to have a second lease of the
gubernatorial chair. From the moment he touched the
seat of that chair be has shown continual signs of such
hypnotic influence. A close observer of his course from
the beginning of his term sees that he has practically
adopted the motto of the energetic pioneer, "A second
term or bust."
There is no reason perceivable, except by hypnotic
suggestion, why the governor should have delayed for
weeks the superior court appointments. He had all the
points needful for his selection long before the adjourn
ment of the legislature. Any person at all familiar with
such matters knows it is sheer subterfuge for the gov
ernor to respond, with suspicious petulance, that he
"does not propose to work more than eighteen hours in
any one day," and that "there are other important and
previously contracted and created matters of public in
terest to be attended to." -JaO|| •
, The governor alms, evidently, at astuteness In poli
tics, but his aim is bad. It Is not what an experienced
politician would call "good politics" to hold up judicial
appointments, as the governor Is now doing, to the*
detriment of judicial procedure and to the extent of
causing gross injustice to litigants.
Andrew Carnegie is in sad mood because the re
quests made to him for library buildings bave fallen to
an average of only one per day. He says, ''I did a rip
roarlng business at the library stand, but I could look
ahead'and see the demand for libraries Blacken." If he
bhould look about three thousand miles ahead, In a west,
erly direction, he, might see an opportunity to drop a
library, building into our Central park.

"I don't think much of this place,"
remarked a young woman to a friend
with whom she was attending an ama
teurish concert, "but it Is better than
staying at home."
Such a remark! Home was the last
place to be considered; a spot that
offered shelter at night and mealn
when they were not to be obtained at
a club annex or a grill down town, but
nothing really enjoyable.
Home does not mean so very much
to some men and women— to the major
ity, in point of fact— yet never was so
much done for the comfort of both.
Modern homes are fairly teeming
with temptations to rest and be luxu
rious and comfortable. There are more
new books and Interesting magazines
put forth every month than the ordi
nary mortal can read, and furnishings
are of the most alluring kind. Yet,

personal belongings to give a "homey"
