THE HERALD'S CITY CIRCULATION
Tho Herald* circulation In the city of Lo» Angeles
Is larger than that of the Examiner or the Expreei
and second only to that of the Times.
Population of Los Angeles 201,249
The urban alertness of Long Beach Is indicated in
the provision just made by its trustees for an additional
fire fighting equipment to cost $30,000. A plan for
putting telephone wires under ground also is announced.
The Republican state convention of Ohio was as
quiet as a Quaker meeting yesterday. But that was
expected, of course, when Secretary Taft announced his
willingness to "hold down the lid" in the capacity of
So it seems that 98 per cent of the garbage collected
in Los Angeles is consumed by hogs instead of being
cremated. Then the garbago returns to housekeepers in
the form of pork, and is consumed by families instead
of by the garbage incinerator. A sort of continuous per
formance of garbage, hog and pork.
It was a unique exhibition, that of the wife of a
millionaire making a dozen cigars in a Cleveland'fac
tory. Formerly she was an employe there. But the
time may arrive again when her knowledge of the trade
will "come handy." Fortunes sometimes take wings.
They are "here today, gone tomorrow."
Yesterday at the commencement exercises at Stan
ford university three hundred students received de
grees. In its two universities of the first class Califor
nia surpasses nearly all the other states, although its
entire population is less than that of Chicago and not
one-half that of New York city.
The biblical Idea about "fishers of men" was realized
practically in that thrilling episode at Long Beach. A
drowning bather was rescued in the nick of time by
two amateur fishermen, who with hook and line man
aged to land their catch. Long Beach holds the record
thus far for the best true fish story.
1 And yet the Express really is funny at times in
"spots. In a double-column scare it offers to pay "$lO
for information leading to the arrest and conviction of
persons stealing copies of the Express." It is a per
fectly safe offer. There may be lunatics in Los An
geles, but surely none crazy enough to steal that sheet.
The collapse of a "wildcat" bank in the Nevada min
ing district is merely a common incident in the scurry
of life in a new town of that character. There is no
doubt that splendid mining properties are in course of
development in the new district, but persons of ex
perience in such ventures will be very cautious where
they "dip in."
The closing of the Merchants Trust company of New
York signifies nothing but loose management of that
particular concern. It was a quite small affair com
paratively, and it "put too many of its eggs in one
basket" in the matter of loans. Financial affairs in New
York never were sounder, generally speaking, than they
are at the present time.
The city trustees of San Pedro turned down hard,
by a unanimous vote, the proposition of a party wishing
to lease a long stretch of harbor frontage for a term
of years. But it will be Important still for the officials
and the people of San Pedro to keep in mind The
Herald's suggestion about "eternal vigilance" in guard
iug the harbor privileges.
A three days' convention of the California state
realty board will begin today in the chamber of com
merce. Various questions of importance relating to the
functions ct the board will be considered. Incidentally
the members will have an opportunity to see the sights
hereabout and enjoy the hearty hospitality of the local
representatives of realty interests.
The Riverside Press says: "We are unable to see any
reason for Los Angeles claiming 200.000 population; the
school census only shows 59.664 children of school age,"
etc. But the 200,000 claim is not based on the school
census. A complete enumeration of the population of
the city was made by the school census marshal's as
sistants, and the footing thereof was more than 201,000.
Now comes the intimation from New York that young
Rockefeller is affected by the "taint" peculiar to Stand
ard Oil money. He is reported as about to withdraw from
all connection with the oil concern and there is a rumor
that he and his pa are at cross purposes on the propo
sition. An inventive chemist capable of devising a
means of removing the oil taint from money might
"strike it rich" with the Rockefellers.
It seems to cost a great deal more for a Los Angeles
election campaign involving moral reform than for an
ordinary political campaign. It is understood that both
sides in the saloon Issue have expended large sums of
money already. For the few days of the campaign re
maining Dr. Chapman, leader of the no-saloon move
ment, has made an earnest appeal for JIO.OOO to meet
campaign expenses. Elections always are expensive and
the fewer extras we have the better.
Impotent Chicago! The lumber teamsters have
joined In the strike and a leading lumber dealer says,
mournfully: "It means complete stagnation of business
at a time when building operations In Chicago are boom-
I Ing to a greater extent than has been since 1892." And
all this because one section of teamsters kindly under
took to force some garment-making employers to ac
cede to demands of their operatives. Business paralyzed,
the progress of the city given a serious backset, a loss
of millions of dollars and great inconvenience to all
citizens, lint It is exactly what Chicago most richly*
_X>S ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, MAY 35, 1905.
TURNING OF THE CHICAGO WORM
At last "the worm htut turned" In Chicago. After
many week* of feeble dallying with disorder and law
lessness the authorities of Chicago hay« determined to
handle the strike situation without glores. If the back
bone of the sheriff remains rigid the question soon will
be settled whether the city or a gang of riotous team*
sters shall control the streets.
Every community in the United States Is Interested
In the present status of the prolonged strike situation in
Chicago. Stated briefly, the Issue Is whether the union
teamsters In their sympathetic strike In behalf of a
group of garment workers shall continue to prevent by
violent means other teamsters from taking their places.
On that proposition hinges the question whether some
of the city's most Important Industries shall be allowed
to do business or b© compelled to suspend Indefinitely.
The managers of these Industries declare that their
present attitude in refusing to be coerced by the
strikers "will be the same four years from now that it
Is today." The sheriff says: "At the first outbreak of
trouble which in any way approaches the rioting we
have had I shall call for troops and the troops will be
on the ground within two hours."
That brings the Chicago situation "to a head." All
the teaming jobs vacated by the strikers can be quickly
filled if new men are assured protection. Only by such
scenes of rioting and violence as have occurred can
the teaming business be longer crippled. If the sheriff,
the governor and the military authorities of the state
"mean business," as it seems evident they do. either
law and order or practical anarchy will reign In Chi
cago before the end of this week.
The issue Involved In the Chicago situation should
be settled so that it will form a precedent in all Ameri
can communities. What Chicago proposes to do now is
just what it should have done, as admitted by the
sheriff, at the beginning of the trouble.
The precedent should be set, once for all, that law
and order must and shall be maintained in American
cities, and that the way to assure such maintenance is
to throttle disorder at the very beginning by military
force if necessary, instead of dallying for weeks with
rioters, as the Chicago authorities have done.
A RIDICULOUS SITUATION
It is a ridiculous and rather exasperating situation
which seems to be accountable for the tedious delay in
enforcing the local public utility ordinance relating to
the lighting and telephone service.
Concerning the regulation of the gas service, as
provided for in the ordinance, the only step needful
for enforcement, is the appointment by the mayor of an
inspector qualified to perform the duties required.
The mayor has taken no action in the premises for
the assigned reason that the civil service commission
has furnished him with no eligible names from which to
choose an inspector. That hitch is the ostensible cause
for keeping the gas consumers of the city for weeks
out of the benefits that should accrue from the ordi
nance. It is a flimsy pretext, no matter whether the
mayor or the commission is properly blamable.
It is especially Important, that the appointment of an
inspector be made without unnecessary delay because,
as explained In The Herald, it will take considerable
time after his appointment to make provision for con
forming to the terms of the law. An entirely new de
partment will have to be fitted up suitable for making
the various tests of meters and gas quality, as required.
The council, whose duty it will be to make the re
quisite provision for the inspector's work, does not
even know at present what appliances will be necessary.
Even If the appointment of an inspector were to be
made today it is evident that some weeks would elapse
before practical results could be obtained from the
operation of the ordinance.
If the cause of this extraordinary delay is correctly
stated, the mayor and the civil service commission
should lose no time in "getting together."
FROM BAD TO WORSE
"Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard
his spots?" That allegorical question of scripture is
applicable to the saloon issue which now agitates Los
Will the average drinker of liquor change his habit
in case the no-saloon movement succeeds? The pro
moters of that movement assumo that ho will not
change, for they give the assurance that "under the
proposed orrdinance the man who has acquired an ap
petite for liquor will not be denied his right to indulge
his craving." He still will satisfy his appetite in some
The admission that the craving for the liquor stimulus
will be satisfied in some way suggests possibilities even
more deplorable than results of clandestine liquor
selling on the "blind pig" plan. The liquor drinker who
is proud of his respectability will not take kindly to
the level of the piggery. He may not fancy the idea
of buying "booze" by the bottle or the Jug, and the
opportunity of taking a drink with a restaurant meal
would not satisfy his appetite. Will not such a per
son be likely to seek what he would regard as a genteel
substitute for the bar beverage to 'which he had been
It is said to be a fact familiar to druggists that the
use of opiates has increased largely as a result of pro
hibitory laws. In towns where the no-saloon plan is
operative what Is known as the "morphine habit" is
said to be alarmingly prevalent. There are various
other preparations having an opium base that are.
known to be used largely as substitutes for liquor.
Now, starting with the admitted proposition that
"the man who has acquired an appetite for liquor"
will satisfy his craving in some way, it follows logically
that the closing of saloons will simply scatter the
patrons of them. Some drinkers will resort to the
wholesale bottle or Jug, some to drug store goods and
some of the disreputable "blind pigs." But there is not
a shadow of doubt that many who crave stimulants will
fall into the habit of using morphine or some other
preparation of opium.
Aside from the resources of the drug stores ami the
means otherwise provided for allaying the thirst for
liquor, it is an easy matter for any person to make a
domestic substitute for saloon drinks, as pointed out by
a Herald reader in Tuesday's issue of the paper. That
reader, by the way, writes from Redlands, an ostensi
bly close prohibition city. He tells how easily "booze"
may be concocted from cactus Juice, Mexican fashion,
or from water and honey with a little yeast, etc. In
fact, an Intoxicant may be made by fermentation from
almost any vegetable substance-, as witness the deadly
stuff known as "wood alcohol."
The question for thoughtful Los Angeles people to
consider Is whether. In view of all known facts and in
the light of all experience, the closing of the saloons
would not aggravate rather than mitigate the liquor
The force of the saying that "there's nothing in a
name" is strengthened by a local case Involving bur
glary and highway robbery. The culprit was a, young
woman named Goode.
MAGNETIC POLE FIND
OF THE GREATEST VALUE
WILL 80LVE MANY VEXATIOUS
It Shifts Prom Year to Year— "Line of
Attraction" and It* Queer Move*
m»nt East and West— Prof. Taber'a
Observations and Deductions
The recent redlncovery of ths north
magnetic pole by Capt. Amundsen has
been of the greatest value to nrlentlsts,
for it establishes beyond qtieatlon the
movement of the pole, as well «s several
other fncts of the highest Import. It
also given a flne basis whereon to figure
dnta which may solve some of the most
vexatious problems with which the
geographer, navigator and seaman
have to contend.
Written for The H»r«li1
The first discovery that the earth has
a magnetic pole some 1200 miles dis
tant from the geographical pole was
made by Sir James Roks In 1831-32. He
found the pole In latitude 70 degrees 5
minutes nml longtltude 98 degrees 43
Although It has been stated by one
of the city papers that the south mag
netic pole had not yet been located, I
would say that this Is nn error. The
Southern Cross expedition In the ant
arctic regions, reported in the Marine
Record of Cleveland, 0., dated June 24,
1301, located the south magnetic pole
In latitude 75 degrees 20 minutes south
and longitude 14« degrees east.
In 1841 Sir James Ross noticed that
the pole had shifted 1 degree 32 minutes
since Its first discovery, showing posi
tively that the magnetic poles were not
There are very many Interesting
questions which have not been solved,
caused by the movement of the mag
netic attraction which Is shown by the
compass. To make the proposition
plain, the enrth hns four magnetic
poles, which are directly opposite each
other, and there is a line of attraction
running between the north and south
poles on each side of the earth. The
line on this side of the earth passes a
few degrees east of Cuba, touching the
east end of South Carolina, the east end
of Kentucky, passing through the ex
treme west end of West Virginia,
through the center of Ohio, touching
the west end of Lake Erie, where It
makes a short westerly turn, caused no
doubt by counter attraction, thence
through the straits of Mackinaw, which
separate Lake Huron from Lake Mich
igan, passing through the east end of
Lake Superior and then on to the north
By the latest government charts It Is
noted that the magnetic line on the op
posite side of the earth has been traced
from Hongkong through the island of
Luzon, extending north through the
Pacific to Kamchatka, and on to Its
This line running between the poles
Is called the line of no variation, and
on this line the compass points due
north, or strictly following the line; but
when the compass is east of this line it
points as many degrees west of the true
line as it is degrees from it.
It Is the same when the compass le
placed west of this line; It then points
toward the east, according to the dis
tance from this line.
• The most singular thing which re
mains a mystery Is thnt this magnetic
line, designated the line of no varia
tion. Is on the constant move.
It moves from the Pacific ocean
across the American continent, cross
ing the Atlantic to England, where it
remains stationary for a short time and
then slowly commences its backward
way, gradually Increasing Its move
ment to Its center and following the
same cause at' its Pacific end of Its
route. The magnetic poles move with
It, and that Is why our late arctic ex
plorer, Capt. Amundsen, did not find
It in the same location where it was
found by Sir James Ross, and yet he
failed to give its present exact loca
It Is evident that this magnetic line,
which controls the compass, has been
moving In an easterly direction, for
the reason, that the compass pointed
7 1-2 degrees east in 1710 at San Diego,
and until recently it was 13% degrees.
