LOS ANd&LES HERALD! FRIDAY MORNING,, AUGUST, it, 1903. '
HOBSOffS CHOICE A MISTAKE
Richmond F'earaoa Hobson, hero of the Mefrlm.no
and onculatorj champion,. announces', that Be., iWl^ be a
candidate for, congress on the, platforms fA qavythat
shall OTershadow' the navies of the world." "
.Neither the views nor.the aspirations of the young
man are of great public moment, but the sehtltnent he
expresses' Is noteworthy because it colncfdea with the
views' of mafiy Americans. 1 In Its phrasing It' t« only a
slight exaggeration of. utterances fron) the lips of Presi
dent. Roosevelt. And /the i theory' underlying Hohson'a
scheme, as he explains It, 'agrees substantially with the
president's Idea. • v r*'* v
Itobson cays: "A big navy means peace on earth and
commercial supremacy for the United States; of course
It would cost millions of dollars, but s would pay because
of the saving of human -life, which ia-Vprth more than
the ■world's supply of money." thinks
his Idea Is' making great, popular headway,. claiming that
he Had advocated It In 1 twenty-two states; 'aitil th© people,
as declared,'- Vhave "applauded my doctrine,'; besides vot
ing Instructions to their 1 senators and' representatives
to support this program."; '' ■".
The hypothesis'; on; which Hohson stands is a quick
sand. The building of a vast navy by tho United States
would merely lead to like action on the part of the other
great naval powers. A fundamental feature' of British
policy is to maintain a navyfully equal in' strength to
any. two other navies. Not while Britain has a penny
for naval account will It allow any other nation to take
its place In the load as a naval power. And Britain's
piescat lead, as 'compared with the United States, is
nearly as four Is to one.
An atte.'.pt of tho United States to float the greatest
navy In the world would v be followed by an era of stu
pendous warship building by all the great powers. Hun
dreds of millions of dollars would be expended, grinding
the people. by. taxation, probably without causing any
material change finally in relative naval power.
- The making 6f larger navies and larger armies means
retrogression toward barbarism. The only road to peace
llos in the direction of international disarmament on
land and sea. .'■ •'■ ■•••
That report from the suburban village of Inglewood

■•■■■ --The people of this city, and many thousands more out
-side* its-limits, -may well, rejoice, over the certainty that
abundant water will be provided for the greater Los
Angeles and also for neighboring communities. There
is not even the fear of incurring a heavy financial burden
to cloud the bright outlook. The water system earned
$700,000' last "year in excess'of its current expenses, and
its future .earnings,, together, with. the proceeds of the
sale of surplus water, will provide for the $20,000,000

f MSlf^ttT THE* ORANGE BELT
While we note the rapid expansion of lnterurban
transit within a radius of thirty miles or so from Los
Angeles, we should not. lose sight of similar expansion
that Is going on a little farther away. . :
In the eastern part of the San. Bernardino valley
a vast system of Iriterurban electric railways is in course
of construction. Already it links together Redlands,
Colton, San Bernardino, Highland and minor points.
Provision has been made for the Immediate extension
of (hat system to Riverside, with a double-track line that
will give a fifteen minute service between that city and
the other points. Another line is assured to extend
westward from San Bernardino to Upland, passing
through several thriving towns.
The field of transit expansion referred to comprises
the choicest part of the great orange belt. Three steam
railways already tap the whole district — the Southern
Pacific, the Kant* Fe ami the Salt Lake. But the citrus
fruit business is conducted in small, land .holdings, 1
usually ' from '"live to twenty "acres, and eleotrjo carier
vice is especially adapted to the needs of the people.
On all the lines now in operation or "projected in the
orange belt provision la made for freightage. A great
convenience will be afforded to growerg in being able,
to send their fruit to the packing houses by cars instead
of by wagons. . : * 7 | ;
There is no doubt that a network of electrlo Ifnes
will develop In the orange belt, working steadily toward'
the system reaching eastward • from the Ix>s Angeles
base. And. eventually the two systems will Join", making*'
a vast gridiron of auch lines extending from the edge of
the valley, a hundred miles away, in tbjs'abadow.o'f greai'
mountain peaks that reach more than two miles skyward. '

CAPITALISTS FORM COMPANY
FOR FLO A TING EXPOSITION
NEGOTIATING FOR SHIP TO LEAVE OCT. 1
Corporation Is Organized With $1,000,000 Capital to Send
Display of Products to Southern Republics in Effort
to Establish Trade Relations With Los Angeles
The "floating exposition" Idea, advo
cated by The Herald as a means -of
awakening: the southern republics to
the advantages of trading: with Los An
geles Jobbers and manufacturers, has
crystallized into a formation of a stock
company with a capital of $1,000,000, and
the ship Is scheduled to leave San
Pedro for the Southern Pacific coast
This information was given to The
Herald yesterday by one of the stock
holders and promoters, who outlined the
plans' of his company and said that in
corporation papers would be filed with
in a few days. ■
When' the corporation formalities are
Completed, a definite statement will be
issued by the company and the detailed
plans of the "floating exposition" will
be placed before the chamber of com
merce, the Merchants and Manufactur
ers' association, board of trade; and As
sociated Jobbers for approval.; ,-„;'."
'" Ihterested^in' this company^'are ''local
capitalists, "whOße names guarantee the
success of the undertaking; -Void- several
officials and capitalists of Mexico/ '*•
This company is organized for the
EOle, purpose of displaying, the products,
natural and manufactured, of Los An
geles, but. as aresuit of the success of
the advertising plan, another company
will be. organized, to establish, a steam
ship line which will serve, the trade be
tween the countries in the- tropics and
Los Angeles.- . . ■ ,-. ■«■■■-
As an . inducement, for the establish
ment of . this. line, of steamships, .the
Mexican government has promised val
uable, concessions and a subsidy. .As
the company has several Mexican capi
talists and officials high in position on
its directory, the influence -which they
wlll.be able to exert in behalf of the
steamship company is expected. to be a
powerful agency for .building up per
manent trade relations.
Local jobbers and. several companies
owning mines In Mexico are among
those. Interested in the formation. of
the new .company,' and sufficient busi
ness is guaranteed through these con
nections to Justify the venture, accord
ing to the statements of a stockholder
who is taking an active part in the final
formalities of incorporating the exposi
tion ship, company. . ■[ . . -':'
These flrms recite that they are com
pelled to buy their hardware, mach
inery and supplies in San Francisco be
cause local merchants and manufactur
ers are unable to compete j in the' way
of freight rates obtained .by San Fran
cisco merchants. ' "^ '
-.They wish to trade and conduct their
banking business at Los Angeles but
find it impossible. Several of these
mine and property owners recite the
lack of banking connections,", and as
sert that should these arrangements be
concluded and shipping facilities be se
cured bo that local ' merchants couid
compete with Ban Francisco and other
markets, an enormous trade would re
sult in favor of Los Angeles firms. ,

the movement for an independent
steamship line, writes as follows:
'.'To make this proposition pay, would
depend considerably upon the merch
ants -of Los Angeles, as they would
have to get their drummers out through
this . part of Mexico and build up a
trade, as I am Informed by supposedly
reliable parties that Los Angeles could
compete with San Francisco for the
commercial - business.
"If this Is a fact, It could no doubt
build up an enormous trade, as I am
safe in saying that during the past
year the tonnage from San Francisco
to . Mexican ■ ports north of Mazatlan
has increased fifty per cent. This alone
shows that San Francisco is awake to
the commercial interests of the south
ern coast.". ...
"Few citizens of j Los Angeles ' real
ize the enormous passenger- traffic now
existing between Mexico and this city,"
said". 'a- local' capitalist yesterday.
"Trains seldom enter or leave' the city
without a large percentage Of Mexican
passengers aboard; With* high rates and
a roundabout route ! with the' burdens
of second class accommodations, this
traffic Is remarkable for i'Vs proportions.
"With a direct 'steamship line, this
traffic would be increased and natives
of .-.the western coast who have never
heard of Los Angeles would Join 'the
throngs • who annually visit \ Southern
California: They do not come as paup
ers, but at home until they save
sufficient funds -for the- trip and* stay
until they spend their money. : •
"The scheme of sending an advertis
ing ship down the coast Is an excellent
one, and Is certain to bear fruit. Busi
ness will result and trade relations with
the southern republics" will • be" in
evitable."- "•■■•' " ' ■•- ■ * -
When informed last*, night of the
formation- of the company to send "a
"floating exposition" to the tropics, As
sistant Secretary Gurley of the cham
ber of commerce said: ■••■■..
■"Your Information is the first I have
received-, regarding the .-formation-* of
