LOS ANGELES HERALD! MONDAY MORNING, OCTOBER a, 1905.
DENVER'S CONNIPTION FITS
The fact that Lob Angeles Is soon to have 'ample
water for Its every une, and the further fact that tho
government Irrigation service, foreseeing the colossal
city Boon to grow here, is providing water for ample
country to support it, are giving the state of Colorado
a sort of mental hydrophobia. By a process of reason-
Ing as specious as it is ( sneaking, the rocky common
wealth declares that all the water of every stream orig
inating in its desert hills belongs to it, no matter
through what other states the streams may flow.
The immediate cause of its conniption fits, as enun
ciated editorially by tho Denver News, is the United
States plan to use Gore canyon — onw sought to be
pre-empted by a railroad — as a reservoir for the surplus
waters, those then via the Colorado river to be turned
to irrigating purposes in Southern California and
Nevada. The project has the approval of the Los An
geles chamber of commerce, of the United States gov
ernment and of the irrigation service. But a Denver
railroad wants Gore canyon, and is fighting it.
It would seem in common reason, even if the laws
did not so proclaim, which they do, that everyone along
a river had a right to his proportion of Its flow. This
Colorado denies. It asserts that rivers originating in
its borders belong to Colorado alone. This hoggish
spirit it attempted to enforce as regards the Arkansas
river in Kansas, and the United States supreme court
is now about to decide against it. Evidently foreseeing
defeat there, It spreads' out its covetous hands and, as
the News asserts, "Colorado claims to be entitled to the
advantages of its geographical situation at the head
waters of most of the important streams of the western
part of the United States." And further, it declares that
they "cannot be Impounded for the benefit of deserts
near Los Angeles or elsewhere outside the state."
Los Angeles, so far as the city is concerned, needs
no Colorado water; Its own supply, purer, better, nearer,
is absolutely assured. The country between here and
the Colorado river may need further irrigation; if so,
the United States will furnish what is required, and
Colorado need have no mad-dog spasms about It; Colo
rado will not be consulted.
The fact is that Denver, placed In a rock, ribbed,
barren and Impossible region, has reached the limit of
Its inflated growth. Los Angeles, the center of earth's
choicest garden of Eden, has only begun. Denver is
jealous — vide this, from the same editorial:
"Our esteemed and enterprising friends in the coast
city may have a grievance against Providence for placing
the Rocky mountains and the water supply at such a
distance from them, but if they have they had better
pass a resolution criticising the decrees of Heaven and
let It go at that."
Los Angeles will not criticise Providence, but rather
render thanks that the Rockies and such hogglshness as
they seem to breed are many hundreds of miles farther
away than is the water supply which excites Denver's
THE "MRS. WIGGS" BANK
Interesting Indeed is the announcement that comes
from Kentucky; thrilling and awe-lnsplring; Inclined to
shake old theories and upset old notions: One woman,
out of one book, has made so much money that she is
about to ' start a bank with her surplus funds. The
capital will be a quarter of a million dollars, and she will
furnish practically all of it.
Shades o' Grub street, but the rewards of literature
are far different these days as is the literature itself —
though in inverse ratio. A profit of $250,000 from one
book — what would some of our old friends of the golden
age of English letters have said to such a return? Take
Goldsmith, for instance, with his patched clothes and his
starvation wages — did his "Vicar" fetch him a fraction
of such dole? And Milton, in a debtor's prison — what
got he for "Paradise Lost"? Dr. Johnson himself — his
ponderous tomes brought only a pittance. Addison,
Shelley, Bobbie Burns, the gentle Keats, the pitiful
Chatterton; Sir Walter Scott, writing against time and
bankruptcy. Bunyan — the chronicle runs apace, and
covers nigh the whole range of names that stand en
snrined In every anthology — did all of them together
ever place $250,000 to their combined credit in any bank?
But, mayhap it be argued, part of this came from
the stage — for this Inconsequential book was forthwith
turned Into a play, of course. Well, admit it, and cite
that case of a Chicago youth whose royalties appall him
by their immensity — did the greatest of all the world's
dramatists do as well? Nay. Will Shakespeare oft went
hungry to his role. Kit Marlowe, Beaumont and Flet
cher, and the rest, were poverty stricken wretches and
usually too poor to possess more than enough to live on.
It took the twentieth century to bring literature to
its financial reward. True, fame hath for centuries en
shrined each mentioned name on her immortal tablets —
but one cannot live on fame — especially posthumous
Probably Alice Hegan Rice will be forgot In a dec
ade and "Mrs. Wiggs" will be a curiosity on old book
stalls. But the corporation that the combination founds
will go on rolling up wealth, and she will be enabled to
laugh at notoriety and to scoff at remembrances. "The
First National bank of the Cabbage Patch" will be paying
regular dividends and Mrs. Rice will be reaping her re
wards here in golden shekels, instead of mouldering In
an unknown grave some centuries hence while an idola
trous nation proclaims her great.
Do "literatoor" pay? Was "Mrs. Wlggs" worth while?
Yes— s2so,ooo worth.
In the election to the board of education of Henry
Frank i and W. C. Patterson, Los Angeles secures the
services of two most excellent men. Mr. Frank being
a leading merchant and Mr. Patterson a conservative
banker, they will add to the business acumen and
strength of an already fine board and do much for edu
cation and the schools.
"Nothing we have ever done has advertised us so
much as has the Owens river water deal," says Dr. H. O.
Bayless, just back from Europe, in The Herald yester
day. Right you are, doctor. And to think there were
some few persons here misled Into knocking it!
It has taken the mysterious murder of a woman to
convert ethe conservative English from their old style
secret compartment railway carriages to the American
fashion of corridor trains. But the old bandboxes are
likely now to be relegated to the scrap heap.
Hard luck It is that the present day burglar plays In.
Not only are his hauls light but even the women drive
him away with well aimed shots. And when all women
are able to emulate the one who tried this method last
week, the burglar's trade will be over.
Tips not being allowed in New York, a Denver Croe
sus, desiring to do the right thing by his waiter and maid
at a hotel there, is taking them to Europe with him.
For the common herd, isn't the remedy a little worse
than the evil in this case?
Chicago's firemen are forbidden to smoke. Supposed
to get all they need fighting flames, eh? And, perhaps,
the rest when they die.

"With all due respect to stage-man

If fame is to be one's portion. I don't

part of the profession nowadays; it
won't be ignored.
"It gives her the best managers. It

MOTOR ATTAINS HIGH SPEED
Makes Sixty.Three Miles an Hour at
Official Test on Union
Special to The Herald.
OMAHA, Oct. I.— Motor car No. 2
received Its official test by the Union
Pacific railroad today, making a trip
of slxty-twb miles, during the course
of which it reached a maximum speed
of 63.2 miles an hour. The car. was
driven by Its designer, W. B. McKeen,
superintendent of motive power of the
Union Pacific road, and carried rail
road officials and several other persons,
including Vice President Mohler,
United States Mlllard. Edward Rose
water, proprietor of the Omaha Bee,
and F. A. Nash, of the Omaha & Coun
cil Bluffs street railway.
This car is the first to be built for
practical purposes, the first one being
in the way of an experiment. Since
the success of the gasoline motor car
has been assured, the Union Pacific
officials have been flooded with In
quiries from other roads throughout
the country, many of them seeking to
place orders for the cars.
Today's trip was from Omaha to
Valley, Neb., and return, and was suc
cessful from every standpoint. A
speed of fifty miles an hour was easily
maintained, and for three miles It ex
ceeded sixty-three miles. The car is
fifty-five feet long, and Is constructed
to carry fifty persons. A large number
of other car 3 are in course of con
struction and they will be so arranged
as to provide for baggage and mail.
The branches of the entire system will
be equipped with the cars as fast as
they can be built. This Is being done
under Instructions of Vice President
Mohler, whose suggestions are said to
have been largely responsible for the
building' of the cars.
