THE HERALD'S CITY CIRCULATION
The Herald* circulation In the city of Los Angeles
la larger than that of the Examiner or the Express
and aeeond only to that of the Time*.
Population of Los Angeles 20 1 ,249
The government is preparing to build a great re-
Btraining dam to control tho flood waters of the Yuba
river. The old Yuba dam of familiar memory seems to
have been non-effective latterly.
A Hot Springs bank teller is the latest of his class to
filch a large sum of money to which his position gave
him access. But perhaps there is some extenuation for
him by reason of his environment in striking a hot pace.
The richest strike reported yet in the Goldfleld min
ing district was made right in the heart of the town.
It is supposed to approximate $100,000. - The strike
was made, according to report, in a bank vault by the
bank's officers.
A common culprit who steals a small sum of money
is called a thief, while a person who takes a large
amount from a bank or other institution is alluded to as
a mlsappropriator of funds. The odium of thievery thus
seems to be in inverse ratio to the amount of the theft.
, The Republican mayor of Philadelphia declares his
purpose "to remove from office all the forty-three ward
leaders" of the Republican organization. That Phila
delphia gang beats All Baba's forty thieves just three
in number, but matches them about evenly in 'other re
spects.
"The circulation of the Express yesterday was
30,226," says the Evening Ten-Nights-in-a-Bar-Room.
But it neglects to add that about one-half that number
•was distributed as samples and that housemaids and
housewives were kept busy sweeping the holy rubbish
into the street.
A great bore is not usually interesting, but that
one reported from Santa Barbara is an exception. It
Is a bore for oil, is down 1400 feet and the drills are
•working through a stratum of asphaltum that will prob
ably prove to be over 1000 feet through." There seems
to be other things than "good intentions" suitable for
paving purposes away down below.
Many a sad death on the deserts of Southern Cali
fornia might have been avoided if a plan now to be
adopted had been in vogue long ago. Guide posts are to
be erected at suitab.le points on the deserts that will
give directions about water, distances to camps, etc.-'
An appropriation of $5000 for the purpose was made in
the last session of the legislature.
The coolest suggestion of the season was made
before the interstate commerce commission by the gen
eral counsel for the Armour refrigerated car lines.
It is to the effect that the regulation of the concern's
charges by the commission would be "Injurious to the
interests of the fruit growers and other users of the
cars." And that after testimony showing that' the
charges are outrageous.
San Diego reports a novel referendum proposition.
A dispute over an ordinance relating to an unimportant
street improvement may lead to the referendum resort,
and the cost of an election would greatly exceed the
value of the improvement involved. All of which further
proves the general proposition that it is possible to
have "too much of a good thing," also that the referen
dum is no exception to the rule.
An interesting case Is about 1o be- tried In this city
involving the classification of tho Japanese liquor called
sakl, which is imported quite freely in California. The
question at issue is whether the liquid should bear a
revenue of 50 cents per gallon as an imported wine, or
come under a head requiring tho payment of only 10
cents a gallon. It is a liquor made of rice- and for
"booze" purposes is nearly as effective as whisky.
The claims of Los Angeles that it is the financial
center of the Pacific coast have again been amply con
firmed. The "roll of honor" of the Financier, the lead
ing financial paper of New York and the United States,
phows that this city has twice as many national banks
whose surplus and undivided profits exceed their capital
as has any other city in California, including San Fran
cisco. When it is remembered, too, that the same table
credits Chicago with only one more such bank than Los
Angeles possesses, the remarkable status of this city is
still further emphasized and its solid financial worth and
standing are verified in a remarkable degree.
ONLY ONE WEEK MORE ♦
There will be only one more week, fortunately, of the
exciting local agitation over the saloon issue. Next Fri
day the voters of Los Angeles will decide whether the
saloons shall go or stay.
Present indications warrant the belief that the issue
will bring out a' very full vote, possibly approximating
the vote in the last presidential election. That will be
the result of the deep interest manifested in the question
by the public.
All citizens will be glad when the election is over and
the agitation at an end. The press mouthpiece of the
no-Baloon movement gives notice in advance that in the
event of defeat the promoters will keep up the agitation
"world without. end." But the people of Los Angeles
will have had enough of it when the sun sets next Fri
day.
AH sensible citizens perceive that the campaign is
having a harmful effect on the interests of the city, a
condition that all deplore. When "the die is cast" finally
—"when this cruel war is over"— all citizens will be pre
pared to pull together again in the great but pleasing
task of making Los Angeles better, prettier and still
bore prosperous.
LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, MAY fl6, 1905.
A JOURNALISTIC JANUS
"Prohibition does not prohibit" the Evening Express
from clutching all the cash obtainable from liquor deal
ers. It Jumps at a liquor advertlnement with the avidity
of a trout after, a fly, a/id the bigger the ad. the more
agile the Jumping act. The whole-page liquor advertise
ment in yesterday's Issue of the Express really called for
an apologetic notice, something like this: "Owing to
extraordinary pressure upon our space caused by a
whole page of tlquor traffic advertising, much Interest
ing no-saloon matter Is crowded out today."
What do the honest and consistent prohibitionists
think of a newspaper that with one side of its Janus
face yawps "down with the liquor business" and with
tne other face begs for advertising money derived from
the sale of liquor. And this the accredited organ ot the
no-saloon movement. V Only In the fiction of Dr. Jekyll
and Mr. Hyde can be found tho counterpart of a charac
ter as despicable as the one now played by the Evening
Express. The "taint" of oil on John D. Rockefeller's
money must seem to consistent Los Angeles prohibition
ists as attar of roses compared to the taint of the money
received by the Express from the spigots of whisky
barrels.
What a bogus Jewel thoii art, consistency, when pos
ing in the columns of the Express as the leader of tern
peranco reform In Los Angeles. Consistency, with ono
hand outstretched in appeals for subscriptions from con
scientious believers in the no-saloon cause, while the
other hand reaches out nnd clutches the price of liquor
traffic advertising. "Baton rebuking sin" is a tame con
ception compared with the attitude of the Express in
howling itself hoarse about the infamy of the saloons
while chucking into its coffers tho "tainted" money of
the bar.
What have such staunch and sincere prohibitionists
as Dr. Bowers, et al., to say of a newspaper that beats tho
gong and tom-tom of saloon opposition on one page and,
FOR MONEY, prints another page of powerful argu
ments in favor of maintaining the saloons?
SECRETARY f AFT'S KEYNOTE
The speech of Secretary Taft at the Ohio Republican
state convention may be taken as the administration
keynote In the politics of 1905.
This is a political "off year," but there will be enough
stir in certain state campaigns to maintain public In
terest in politics. That Interest will be intensified by the
assumed purpose of the president to summon congress
in Rpecial session to consider the policy of enlarging the
powers of the interstate commerce commission and pos
sibly of revising the tariff.
Judge Taft, unlike Secretary Shaw of the treasury de
partment, frankly admits that the bis deficit in the fed
eral treasury is a serious matter. The shortage that
seems sure to continue if the schedule of appropriations
is to be maintained, must be provided for In one of two
ways. He says: "There remain two alternatives, either
to Impose additional internal taxes or to readjust and
revise the tariff." There appears to be but little likeli
hood of tariff revision in the near future and hence the
country may as well prepare to be saddled again with
extraordinary internal taxes,, such as were introduced,
In part, to meet the Spanish war emergency.
What an interesting commentary Secretary Taft's al
ternatives afford on the financial management of the Re
publican party! ,ln the most prosperous period of the
country.'s history the federal treasury has run into debt
at the rate of $35,000,000 a year.
In some way the American people must make up that,
deficiency, and probably they will be called upon to do
it by a return to war time expedients. Not only the
present deficit but future shortage may have to be met
in like manner.
Bnt the glory of expansion overshadows all questions
of increased taxation, as claimed by this exponent of the
Republican party. The secretary says, enthusiastically,
"Are the people in favor of cutting down the naval or
army estimates? I think I hear 'no' from one end of the
country to the other." We must have a greater navy,
the biggest on earth, according to the judgment of the
secretary of the navy. Warships sop up millions of
money as a sponge takes up water.
And the people — "they pay the freight."
CHICAGO'S INCRIMINATED STRIKE LEADERS
It is difficult to comprehend how intelligent working
men can follow such leaders as the managers of the
teamsters' strike in Chicago. The average workingman
is a loyal, orderly, law-abiding citizen. The leaders in
the Chicago strike are self-confessed lawbreakers, anrl a
lawbreaker is a criminal. That statement Is fully justi
fied by the Judicial record of Chicago In relation to the
present strike.
Cornelius P. Shea, an Indianapolis man who is presi
dent of the Brotherhood of Teamsters, is the chief leader
of the strike- in Chicago. Shea and some of the other
leaders who were summoned to court as witnesses in
connection with the riot cases, positively refused to tes
tify on the ground that their testimony might incrimin
ate them. Such a claim does not necessarily imply a
confession of crime, but it bears very strongly in that
direction. No man whose skirts are clear of wrong
doing stands in fear of incriminating himself. If Shea
were a man worthy to be the leader of thousands of
honest workingmen he would not take refuge behind
the legal provision that a man shall not be obliged to
give Belf-incriminating testimony.
Here Is additional evidence, still more glaring, of the
unfltness of such a man as Shea to be the leader of hon
est workers. One witness testified, "I told Mr. Shea
that there now exists a contract between the men and
the carriage owners .and liverymen that all troubles
should first be arbitrated. He said there was a war on
and that during war all contracts became null and void."
How can any respectable workingman indorse such
brazen violation of a contract? The contract was
broken, of course, before the war commenced — the
breaking of the contract was the declaration of war.
And yet Leader Shea speaks of that dishonorable act
with as little evidence of concern as he shows In his
plea that he might incriminate himself by testifying in
the riot cases.
And here is further evidence bearing on the character
of Leader Shea, well calculated to disgust any decent
workingman. The president of the Livery Owners' as
sociation testified thus: "When we asked Shea If he
would allow us to deliver passengers in cabs to the boy
cotted stores he said he could not possibly allow It. He
nald he had more power than the mayor of Chicago, and
that he had the men to drive every 'nigger' out of Chi
cago and throw him in the lake."
And yet, intelligent and thoughtful workingmen In
Chicago and other American cities blindly follow the
lead of such dangerous demagogues as this man Shea.
It Is not strange that Buch leaders foment strikes and
create disorder, for th,eir occupation as drones in the
labor hive soon would be gone if there were no strikes.
But It is amazing that intelligent and discerning work
ingmen will follow such leaders, after the manner of a
flock of sheep following the bell-wether.
An automobile service from Monrovia to a point in
the mountain canyon back of the little foothill city is
announced. The auto has proved its ability as a climber
ana It may yet be utilized for mountain ascents. .
SOCIAL
DIARY AND GOSSIP
Mrs. Emma Greenleaf
It would be hard to Imagine any
more delightfully original affair than
the luncheon given yesterday by tha
combined book antl Shakespeare sec
tions of the Ebell club in the club room
of Cumnock hall.
Mrs. Emma Qreenleaf, the director of
the sections, whs guest of honor and a
dozen little complimentary devices were
carried out for her. The members first
gathered In the hall, where the usual
morning session of the literature sec
tion took place and Inter they were
usherfd Into the reception rooms, wher l ?
the luncheon tables hnd been arranged
by n, committee of young mulcls and
matrons dressed in dainty shepherdess
costumes and carrying baskets and
trays of flowers strapped over their
shoulders. They were Mines. C. A.
Stavenow, Otis Shaw, George Kress, H. I
A. Thompson and Missos Evil Stavenow,
Marie Crow mid Ilnnilln, and as the
guests took their places a shower of
blossoms came from their baskets.
In the club rooms, where tho tables
had been arranged, there wore (lowers
galore, nnrl suspended from the celling
over the tnhle at which Mrs. Greenleaf
and the toastmlstross, Mrs. Sydney J.
Parsons, were setited, was a string of
bright colored butterflies. Each guest
wore something which represented n j
Shakespearean or other literary cha»"- 1
acter and a guessing contest was one 1
of the features of the entertainment.
Mrs. W. J. Hole seemed to have the j
happy faculty of guessing the cliarac- ■
ters, and to her was Riven a beautiful I
basket of flowers.
A second contest was that of guessing
Shakespearean quotations, and the win
ners of tho prizes were Mrs. 11. f>.
Horn and Miss Helen Parcels. Dainty
water color pictures, the work of Mrs.
Weir, were awarded them for their
clever work. A program of witty toasts
from different members was given tit
the close of the luncheon, and Mrs.
Greenleaf delighted her hearers with v
clever one on "As You Like It." Tin
toast was given in rhyme after the sty.s
of that ancient of nursery rhymes,
"Cock Robin." and gave an Idea of th*;
different ways people "like It." j
The crowning event of the day came
with the reading of a poem on flowers,
written in honor of Mrs. Greenleaf by-
Mrs. 11. J. Whitley and the presenta
tion to Mrs. Greenleaf of a gold p'.n
set with pearls in the shape of a crown
and a beautiful leather bound copy of
the works of Bryant As Mrs. Whitlev
finished the reading of the poem she
crowned Mrs. Greenleaf with v wreath
of blossoms, making a beautiful con
clusion to a happy occasion.
Mrs. Greenleaf Is much beloved among
Ebell club women and the work which
she has done for the club during the
past year Is the occasion for much re
joldng.
Club Members Picnic
As a finale for the.^ work of the
Wednesday Morning club members of
that organization went Wednesday to
Miller's canyon for an outdoor outing.
The company went in Bpecial cars and
had luncheon In the pretty canyon.
Later In the afternoon they went to an
other part of the cannon, where quota
tions from Shakespeare had been pinned
on the trees and here a guessing con

MORAL STRABISMUS
AFFECTS THE EXPRESS
Correspondent Holds It Responsible
for Campaign Vituper
ation
LOS ANOELES, Cal., May 23.—(Edi
tor Herald): It I« extremely unfor
tunate that the no-snloon ordinance
rampnlßn to no Inconsiderable extent
has fnllen Into the dark and unwhole
some days of personal detraction. The
Express Is largely responsible for the
vituperation and personal abuse now
being indulged in by the Prohibition
spouters. There Is nothing modest in
the demeanor of The Express. Its
breeding is of the hog order and it
struts like a mouthing mountebank to
win the appluuse of the clapper-claw-
Ing groundlings. The Express poses.
It goes about as one who had discarded
Itself. "I am honest, none of the others
genuine unless they have my Indorse
ment." It assumes the dignity of Sir
Oracle and when it speaks no others
are permitted to open their mouths.
The trouble with The Express is. that
It Is afflicted with moral strabismus
and prohibition myopia. Everybody In
Los Angeles knows that The Express*
pretense of civic purity is a hollow
sham — that It Is a hypocrite at heart.
It pretends to a Civic virtue while se
cretly endeavoring to render nugatory
the efforts r>f public spirited citizens
to promote the general welfare. It Is
often fair In the face of the public
while scheming to tear down what bet
ter men are building. The Express has
not the courage to espouse the cause of
the people. Such cowardice deserves
the open denunciation of all decent
citizens. J. L. S.
TWO LOS ;* ! GELES BANKS
ON "ROLL OF HONOR"
It Has More Than Any Other City
in the State, Including San
Francisco
The Financier, an authority In money
circles all over the United States, haß
just made public Its "roll of honor" of
the national banks of the country. To
obtain a place on this roll a bank
must show surplus and undivided
profits ' equal to or in excess of- its
capital.
Two Los Angeles banks, the First
National and the Merchants' National,
are on this roll, giving this city a
stronger representation than even San
Francisco, where only one Is entitled
to a place. Assuming the capital to be
100 per cent, one Los Angeles bank
shows 158.25 per cent in surplus, the
other 114.59 per cent.
The San Francisco bank show?
138.89 per cent. The showing Is con
sidered to establish beyond cavil the
prestige of Los Angeles as the financial
center of the Pacific coast.
WILL KILL CITY'S FUTURE
Paul de Longpre Deplores the No-
Saloon Agitation
LOS ANGELES, May 25.— (Editor
Herald): In a number of important
nrticles I have had published In great
eastern dallies and magazines I have
always mentioned Southern California
as being destined to become the cen
ter of wealth, of art and of pleasure
of America, and that Los Angeles,
which is running at full speed to have
a population of 500,000, will surely be
one of the richest and most cosmo
politan cities in the world.
I think the Idea to make it dry— to
make it a "jay town" — is about as crazy
as to make Paris or New York dry;
more of a farce yet, because Los An
geles, it Is certain, will in time bo
come the greatest pleasure resort on
earth. The Prohibitionists for the
present may win, and the church will
certainly reap great profit from it, but
watch the tidal wave coming within a
year or two; watch the popular feel
ing — a great cosmopolitan city in which
men will strongly object to belli?
treated like little school boys.
PAUL DE LONGPRE.
MAKE AGITATORS PAY FOR IT
Sensible Suggestion of a Mother Anent
Election Expenses
LOS ANGELES, May 25.— (Editor Her
ald): Allow me to ask a few questions
on the coming no-saloon election. Why
do taxpayers have to stand the expense
of earns? Why don't the parties agi
tating be made to pay all moneys
spent? Our children have not at pr«H
ent decent accommodations for schools.
Last summer the little children', whose
parents pay school tax," were crowded
in sheds and suffered very badly from
heat. The Chapmanlteß say they will
still keep the farce up If they lose thli
election. Will we have to stand (his
expense while our children are waiting
for new school rooma fit for our young
to be taught In? The citizens of this
city should act in some manner, tfcut
the taxes we contribute to our city
should be used for a better purpose.
The drain on us by outside so-called
minister agitators ahould be put to a.

broken Into while the family was
asleep.
The house was completely ransacked,
every article of jewelry, including sev
eral diamond rings and a large quan
tity of clothing being stolen. '
From the fact that the thieves rifled
the rooms In which the members of the
