LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 6, 1905.
THROES OF THREE CITIES
In three loading American cities election campaigns
are In progress now that attract public attention through
out the United States. Tho cities are New York, Phila
delphia and San Francisco.
In each of them a mighty effort is in progress to
purify the municipal government. The better class of
the population in each case is' striving to overcome tho
venal element, fortified by corrupt political influence.
The situation in New York is less noteworthy than
it Is in either Philadelphia or San Francisco. It is ad
mitted by the reform element that the McClellan admin
istration in New York Is a great Improvement on. recent
predecessors, but the claim is made that It might be
. In regard to Philadelphia and San Francisco, how
ever, there can be no answer to the charge that their
depth of official corruption Is unfathomable. In each of
those cities a condition of infamous government has
been reached that makes further descent impossible.
The disclosures brought to light In Philadelphia show
that the Quaker city has been for many years tho prey
of political wolves. The depth of official venality
reached, by San Francisco under the control of the Ruef-
Schmitz combination is a matter of public notoriety In'
Political distinction counts for nothing in such com
binations of corruptionists as have obtained control of
municipal affairs in Philadelphia and ' San Francisco.
City treasury looters are Republicans, Democrats, etc.,
"for revenue only." They "steal the livery." of political
parties to serve such purposes as made, famous the
forty looters discovered by AH Baba.
Philadelphia is so overwhelmingly Republican and
presumably so intensely good because of Jts Quaker city
appellation that it is difficult for outsiders to understand
why the worm there has been so long in turning. The
Republican ring in that city has been stronger for many
years than the Tweed ring ever was in New York. The
Tweed ring was broken by a herculean effort, but the
Philadelphia ring has withstood several desperate at
tempts to break it. The attempt now in progress is the
most formidable of all, and hence the deep interest mani
fested In other cities and towns concerning the result
of the coming election.
The plight of San Francisco is quite similar to that
of Philadelphia. The Ruef-Schmitz ring has been grow
ing stronger with startling rapidity during the last four
years. Seeing the peril that confronts the city In case
of another term of the Schmitz administration, the
reputable element in San Francisco is making an effort
to break the gang.- And this effort, like the one noted
in the Quaker city, is now attracting widespread public
. All cities and towns are deeply interested In these
struggles to throw off the corrupt ring Influences that
try to control public affairs in American communities.
Los Angeles is no exception in this regard. We have
In this city a political machine that is greatly encour
aged by its success thus far and which hopes, no doubt,
to attain such strength as has been wielded by kindred
machines in the larger cities named.
The people of Los Angeles have ample cause for
watching with great interest the municipal campaigns
in New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco.
Smugglers caught In Chicago proved to have stolen
their "swag" from insurance magnates. Getting even or
just getting theirs back?
UTOPIAN BANK SCHEME
A few days ago Chicago announced the smarting of a ;
bank which promises an equal division of 'profits b e-. .
tween stockholders and depositors. Now comes another
announcement from that city telling of. a bank to be
established "to handle union funds and the savings of ■
But that is only a starter. ' The bank, as reported,
will be "the beginning of a chain of union labor banks
which the union labor leaders hope will cover the coun
try some day."
It-is a conception worthy qf Chicago— there is noth
ing small about it. But, discreet wage earners are likely
to conclude that the dividends from such banking busi
ness will be chiefly in experience.
The scheme looks plausible at first glance. The ag
gregate of savings by labor unionists should be enorm
ous. If they were all deposited in union banks they
would make a formidable factor in the financial affairs
of the country. But experience of union management
in other business lines would cause cautious wage earn
ers to prefer other depositories for their surplus.
Labor union business enterprises usually fail. Where
one succeeds a dozen, perhaps, prove the rule of failure.
The cause of such lack of success is obvious to any
person who considers the conditions and circumstances
relating to such business. There necessarily 1b lack of
the fundamental requisite business training and experi
ence. Labor leaders may be quite competent to manage
matters pertaining to their lines of workmanship, but
general business management is quite another question.
The lack of sufficient capital usually Is in evidence, also,
as prudent workers prefer to take no risks with their
There are many other difficulties in the way of suc
cess in such enterprises, however, not the least of which
is the insufficiency of "room at the top" to accommo
date all the leaders who prefer management to work.
In Los Angeles "the melancholy days, the saddest of
the year," were embraced in that group just passed
that made thermal records of '90 degrees plus.
REDUCED LIFE INSURANCE COST
One Important result of lavish waste in life insur
ance management will be, probably, a lower schedule of
Insurance rates. All the savings caused by such econ
omies as are Bure to be Introduced should inure to the
benefit of policy holders.
What those savings will aggregate may be imagined
from the statement of the New York Life's president
that his company paid more than a million dollars in
fl'-q years for legal services. The perquisites of $20,000
a year to Senator Depew and the like absorbed a large
part of that immense sum.
A university professor of mathematics has made ex
haustive calculations concerning life Insurance, embody
in- the results in a current magazine article. He says:'
"With no improvement in the methods and practices
of Insurance companies, a reduction of 20 or 25 per
cent In the premium rates is possible for a company
managed with average care and efficiency." But this au
thority declares that "it Is not enough to bring the in
surance rates down 'to the present cost lovel — the cost
itself is too high." He then proceeds to show that it is
possible to make the saving much greater than 20 or
25 per cent.
Life insurance business, because of its peculiar na
ture, should be put upon a basis that would give all
pecuniary benefits to policy holders, beyond the bare cost
of administration. As now conducted, so far as the big
New York companies are concerned," the primary object
in the business seems to be to make millionaires of the
leading officers and afford fat salaries for all their rela

only. Lee Bascom Is probably the first
woman to write a complete farce. Her

The talented authoress recently formed

Jack London, and they have builded
