He promises nothing.

Senator Perkins*, on the other hand,
declares In unmistakable language:
"I am in full sympathy with tho views
expressed by President Roosevelt in
his last nu "re to congress. I nm
also in favor of passing the most
stringent laws ngninst the railroad
companies giving tipeclnl rebates or
privileges to shippers."
Now we know whero to find Senator
Perkins. He -will support the meas
uro desired by the president and by
the people of this country.
But where stands Mr. Flint?
In the east the Kiktns or railroad
crowd claims him. His name appears
in almost every speculative list of
senators that will vote against a real
measure to regulate freight rates nnd
abolish rebates. AVo cannot believe
that Senator Flint has authorized
such a classification of his name. We
cannot believe that he will character
ize his entry upon the duties of hlB
high office by committing himself to a
policy obnoxious to the common people
of the United States and in opposition
to the wishes of the president.
Still, he has tak-n no opportunity
to declare himself upon this gTeat
question. "I don't know whether I
will help you or not," he seems to say
to the Santa Ana merchants, "but you
will get what you want." How does
the senator know they will, when the
fighting forces are lining up closely
ami he doesn't promise to help the peo
ple? It is easy, perhaps, to believe
that Senator Flint "will do the right
thing when the time comes," as his
friends take pleasure in saying, but
meanwhile the people nre losing the in- '
fluence of his office and name in favor
of their cause.
Tho senator from Southern California
is making 1 the mistake of his life in
trying to conceal his position on these
DRIVERS AND ACCIDENTS
Ono of the most prolific causes of ac
cidents in the busy streets of Los
Angeles is the "jay" driver. He is es
pecially a nuisance in this city right
now, as the crowded tourist season
comes on, nnd measures should lie
taken to suppress him.
There are certain well defined rules
of the road that prevail all over the
United States and are as fundamental
as the common laws. It requires that
teams meeting shall pass to the right.
Teams overtaking shall pass on the
left side. A team shall be hitched fac
ing the way it would drive, with the
right side to the curb. Corners must
not be "cut," but be taken at a full
swing. And traffic at crossings must
pass and repass by turns.
Every driver knows, or should know,
these rules. An observance of them
keeps traffic moving orderly in the
most crowded streets in the world.
They are disregarded every minute of
tho day in Los Angeles, and no one
pretends to enforce their observance.
The driver Is a law Into himself; he
goe3 in either direction on either side
of the busiest street, and !ie cuts nml
crosses at his own sweet will.™ As a
result, rows and clashes are continual,
and collisions, with serious results, are
Los Angeles has a "traffic squad" of
policemen, who stand on the downtown
corners, supposedly to keep tho order
of the road. So far as regulating traf
fic is concerned, they might as well
be wooden Indians. They are highly
ornamental, but they do nothing to
keep the several streams of teams mov
ing unobstructedly in their proper
channels. AVagous, curriages, wheels
and autos drive indiscriminately about,
nnd tho only effect on the policemen is
to keep them awake sufficiently to
dodge death, the same as pedestrians
It would be a simple matter to rpgu
lato the "Jay" driver. The power rests
in Chief Auble and his traffic squad.
The chief Should Kee that his ornament
al policemen get busy as well, unit
that they take a bund in sorting out
tho traffic and keeping it moving
properly, safely and sanely. The con
gestion that now often marks Main,
Spring nnd Broadway nnd tho cross
streets could bo materially lessened,
the number of accidents could be con
siderably cut down nnd tho safety
of pedestrians, especially Ktrangcrs,
would be vastly. Increased, at no cost

• 'portaut matters of the day, handled in the highest style of the newspaper \ ',
Jlart, thoroughly illustrated in color and coverlnn the whole wide range of '
■! ' human activity. The very best fiction available, in both short and con- ■',

J ' pronounced. In fact, larger attention than ever will be devoted to the •>■

Specially and exclusively for the children. This will consist of eight pages !',
Hand will contain nothing except what children will delight In. It will be \\
', ', entirely apart from every other section of the big paper, and may be. de- < >
• i tached and given to the children as their own. It will contain stories, ' I
! ', games, pictures and suggestions, much of which will also interest the ■ ><

by a double lino of club women, who

submitted to the ordeal of having his
hands shaken. There was a sprinkling
of men in the crowd and they seemed
as eager ns thu women to pay their
respects to the noted actor.
Mr. Mansfield's remarks were di
rected to the Importance of the ac

"We all play parts," he said, "tho

COMES TO ESCAPE WINTER
Minister Who Has Passed Active Life
Seeks Rest in Southern
Born in the faith of the Friends'
church, a farmer, seminary student,

are some of the characteristics of the
life of Rev. A. H. Hussey of Mount
Pleasant, 0., who is now a guetit with
his wife at the training school for
Christian workers, 111 South Figunroa
Rev. Mr. Hussey Is 72 years old and
has passed an active liie in reug.Viiij
and literary work. Ke said yesterday;
"I have always led an active life.
From overwork I became physically
disabled in 1880, but in answer to prayer
I was healed. Later I published the
Gospel Expositor, In Columbus, 0., in
the interest of holiness healing. Ir.
1885 I attended as delegate from the
United States the international holi

well to remember that, once bavlnß be

convenience. ITso only fine lace, like

A Necessary Accessory
Now that prlncesse dresses nre so

there may be no fullness under the
Care of Sponges
Many people cling to sponges, al
though they are not supposed to be ns
sanitary as rough wash cloths, because
the sponges cannot bo boiled. If prop
erly cared for, sponges are really quite
sanitary. Only one person should
use one sponge, and the sponge when
not in use should be kept hanging in
the air. An authority ndvlses washing
a sticky sponge in milk, which pro
cess wonderfully renews It.
Although luce nightcaps are now be
loved of womankind, both across the
