It is about time to put the lid on the aspirations of the

In the report of Barney Oldfleld's narrow escape from
death in the automobile race at Detroit it is stated that
"he was carried to an ambulance which had been pro
vided in case of accidents." An ambulance attachment
to swell autos may be a- coming idea.
That latest fad of fast millionaires, the motor boat,

of that one in Long Island sound discloses a liking for
turning over and swimming bottom upward.
It is not like J. Plerpont Morgan to bother about a

Los Angeles has not been overlooked in provision for

A lucky nephew of Andrew Carnegie is said to be in a

That act of young Herreshoff in saving his mechanic
from drowning while he saw his pocketbook floating away
with 92000 is likely to be widely discussed. But the
average American probably would act similarly. The
good side of human nature shows itself when a fellow
mortal is in peril.'
After all the appalling loss of life and the sacrifice
of treasure in the Russian-Japanese war four men, rep
resenting the two countries, are charged with settling the
whole trouble. When the nations become truly civilized
their troubles will be settled by diplomacy at the be

From Reno, Nev., the report comes that the fumes
of burning oil in locomotives and railway shops are sure
death to mosquitoes. In Los Angeles we have a dead
shot for mosquitoes in those black oil soot flakes from
chimneys in the heart of the city. It is difficult, however,
to get the mosquitoes in range of the flakes.
Dispatches from Portsmouth indicate that a pessim
istic feeling is prevalent among diplomats and those
congregated there to watch the developments at the
peace conference. The belief grows from hour to hour
that there is strong likelihood that negotiations may yet
coma to naught through tho possible insistence of Japan
on a heavy war indemnity. M. Wltte is expected to hold
steadfastly to his firm attitude regarding non-payment
of tribute. There seems to be room for hope, however,
that the plenipotentiaries may reach an agreement on
the basis of Russia's concession of compensation in con
sideration of Japan's release, of. the island of Sakhalin,

LOS ANGELES HERALDI THURSDAY MORNING, AUGUST 10, 1903.
A LOS ANGELES HANDICAP
Three days ago a Los Angelea business man arrived
at home, coming from a point 'near Mazatlan, Mexico.
He Is a member of a Los Angeles company which is
developing a gold mine a few miles back from the port
of Macatlan. Frequent journeys back and forth between
Los Angeles and the mining point are necessary.
In order to make the Journey either way it U neces
sary for that mining man to travel, about a thousand
tnllea out of his way. In the homeward Journey Just
made he was obliged to pass the latitude of Los An
geles several miles out In the ocean and steam up the
coast about 600 mUes to San Francisco. From the
northern city he then came southward another 600 miles
to his home.
This experience Is related as an Incident showing
the importance of direct steamship communication be
tween Los Angeles and tb© various southern Pacific
ports. There are Important business relations now be
tween this city and several of those ports, with oppor
tunities for great expansion by Introducing direct steam?
ship service. Los Angelea Is the natural entrepot in
American relations with the southern coastwise trade,
but it is sealed against taking its rightful place so long
as Its business of that kind must pass through the
Golden Gate. * '
The Herald often has urged the importance of open
ing trade relations between Los Angeles and the south
ern ports, but the time for pushing' the matter now
seems to be especially propitious. . Port facilities at
San Pedro are far enough advanced to warrant a start.
It will take some time to scrape acquaintance with our
southern port neighbors, and that preliminary feature
cannot begin too soon. Lob Angeles business men know
how to grasp an opportunity without taking the risk of
losing it by reason of greater alertness on the part of
The scheme for "drumming" the southern ports on
the German plan already noted In The Herald has proved
to be very effective in extending the sphere of German
trade influence. As a forerunner of steamship transpor
tation btween Los Angelea and the southern coast it
would prove to be an invaluable entering wedge.
The rapidity of shifts in President Roosevelt's cabinet
would be creditable to a rapid change artist in a vaude
ville show. The passing of Secretary Shaw of the treas
ury department is the latest announcement of that kind,
but Secretary Hitchcock of the interior department is
known to be "on the ragged edge," and there are one or
two other "suspects." '.:■■ . ' . .
MORE TRANSIT INNOVATIONS
Two fresh wonders in the line of electric transit have
just been announced, one In Los Angeles and the other
in South Bend, Ind. Together they show how rapidly
steam power is being superseded by electricity in trans
portation, and they give some idea of the revolution
that is now in progress In all classes of transit.
Electric motors that will. haul the passenger cars
of steam railways may soon be seen In the neighbor
hood of Los Angeles. Two such motors, each capable of
drawing ten ordinary passenger coaches of a steam
railway, have just been completed in this city. These
motors, as explained, "will be put into service for
freight hauling over the. standard gauge divisions of the
Los Angeles-Pacific railway, and also to handle the pas
senger traffic which this electric road is planning to
take from and deliver to the Santa Fe and Southern
Paclflo at Inglewood and Sunset stations respectively
for Venice and Playa del Key." An idea thus is given
■ of- the adaptability -of the electric motor to purposes for
which the steam locomotive is employed, with advan
tages in economy and in other respects.
The innovation noted at South Bend relates to track
less service of the electric motor on a scale not hitherto
attempted. A company has been organized in the In
diana city to carry passengers and freight over the pub
lic highways in coaches seating thirty persons each.
To each of these passenger cars will be attached three
freight cars, each of which will have a capacity of ten
tons. The train will be propelled by 100-horse power of
stored electricity, generated from gasoline.
Economy of operation and convenience by reason of
easy adjustment are the most important factors in both
of these new departures. If an electric motor can haul
ten loaded passenger coaches at schedule speed as pro
posed in the vicinity of Los Angeles it is evident that
the day of the more costly locomotive is passing rapidly.
And in regard to the road motor, in its many forms, there
Is no longer a doubt that It promises to revolutionize all
kinds of highway transportation.
A majority of "civic decency" delegates is claimed as
a result of the primary election in San Francisco on
Wednesday. The Republican league is the other name
for the "civic decency" party.' As the returns show only
15,803 votes for the league in a total of 38,553, the re
mainder being largely Abe Ruef's follow les, it is hard
to see how "civic .decency" can, win.
CALIFORNIA CITIES DIFFER
. A feeling of sadness . comes over the Sacramento
Union as it contemplates the grand river, the largest in
California, that flows by the side of , the Capital city.
So far as its beauties are concerned the river seems
to be, in the Union's estimation, something like that of
the miser's hoard. j It offers great possibilities if utilized.
That the natural beauties of the Sacramento river are
not appreciated at the ' Capital city is evident from the ,
tone of the Union as It reflects upon what might be.
Looking southward toward Los Angeles, while contem
plating the home lack of appreciation "concerning the
river, the Union Is moved to. say: ■ . •■,
We can readily Imagine that mich a river In Los An
geles would become tha supreme resort of the holiday
maker and of the tired city man who must devote one flay
In the week to gathering strength for the duties of tha
Starting with that thought, a sad view Is taken of
the difference between the appreciation manifested by
the Capital city community and that which character
izes the people of the southern metropolis. The Union
We can believe that such a river would be (by Angelenos)
made beautiful and therefore suited to lti purpose; that easy
access to Its banks would be provided and that those banks
would be bo preserved and tended 'as to display the waters
and the reaches to the best possible advantage. Those -who
wished to promenade would be able to do so without danger
.to life or limb, and theme who desired to be on the water
Instead of by the side of 'it would find suitable boats ready
for their use. The river would became the center of the
elty'B pleasure and. of ..the. city's health, and Its charms
would be advertised far and wide as an unrivaled attraction
to tourist* and visit or a. .
Right you are, esteemed contemporary. Loa Angeles
was carved out of desert i and barren hills. Every at
tract lon that it presents is the work of man. But trav
elers who have seen the prettiest cities of the earth pay
the highest compliments to tfia beauty of Lob Angeles.
But Russians can shoot. They, bombarded a town in
Crete and made it show a white flag— first one the czar's
men have seen in other hands since the trawler episode.
The Los Angeles chief ;6t police should be b> man In
whose capability and faithfulness the publio would have
complete couhdunce. It will be shameful If the selection
aball fall upon a wav who is not up to that utaudari,

The Voters' league is agitating- a cam

"The proposed ordinance prepared by

scribes a fender for street cars such
as is actually used in some cities and
has been thoroughly tested and whose
efficiency is proved by the ' much
smaller number of fatal or serious
street car accidents in cities where such
fenders are used.
"The proposed ordinance does not
attempt to limit the speed of street cars
except at street crossings and where
a car passes another discharging pas
sengers. - Such reasonable s restrictions
are necessary to prevent accidents.
"The larger the number of cars run
In the city the greater the danger of

freight cars over the street railway
tracks Is not now restricted or regulat
ed in any. way, the ordinance forbids
such operation of freight cars 'without

proper regulation. Most of the execu
