Commercial Interests Such as Make
-: 7' Necessary the Establishment
of a Base on West
ern Coast .
Additional interviews obtained with
responsible citizens of Los Angeles Show
that the best public opinion with re
gard to the question of a permanent
naval establishment on the Pacific has
been voiced correctly in the editorial
columns of The Herald, and that busi
ness Interests believe that for the pub
lic safety and the protection of rapidly
increasing Pacific maritime commerce
a fleet is necessary.
Jingoism has nothing to do with the
case. The only point of view taken by
the business men interviewed is the
business point of view. They Insist that
the business interests of Los Angeles
and of California make a permanent
Pacific fleet a necessity.
Public sentiment voiced by the citi
zens Interviewed Insists that the fleet
should remain on the coast, because
trade necessities and commercial inter
ests require Its presence. If the insur
ance business had grown to such an ex
tent that great Insurance companies is
sued policies on entire cities, it is high
ly Improbable that any company would
Insure Los Angeles, because under cer
tain conditions that are far from being
beyond the range of possibilities the
city and surrounding territory might be
occupied by landing parties after only
such resistance as American bravery
could give.
Bravery Would Not Count
Bravery without a thoroughly forti
fied coast, guarded by a powerful fleet,
would be In the nature of self-sacrifice.
Naval and military experts are well
aware that It would be unavailing
against a foreign fleet. In the opinion
of the citizens interviewed, even if the
United States remains at peace with all
the world, the increase of Oriental trade
will make It necessary to police the
Pacific and the Pacific coast with war
ships. Since the maritime conditions
of the Atlantic and Pacific states are
practically alike, the Pacific states
should have as complete naval protec
tion as the Atlantic.
The following interviews express the
sentiments of responsible and well
known citizens:
Fleet a Necessity .
T. H. Kirk, lecturer and educator
This is a good time for a great fleet to
be permanently established on the Pa-
Pacific coast. American daring mani
fests itself in the great risks we are
taking, and in that taking of risks lies
the great danger. We should, there

our Interests but would give us more

steps should be taken to protect the
Interests on the Pacific. These Inter
ests increase daily and commerce Is
being extended to new ports along the
Pacific coast and our trade with the
orient is growing rapidly, making lt
absolutely necessary for a strong fleet
in these waters.
"I certainly believe It would be
agreeable to have the big fleet remain
In these waters," said United States
District Attorney Oscar Lawler
yesterday, when asked for his opinion
on The Herald's editorial concerning a
Pacific squadron. "I favor having this
fleet or another of equal size, whose
personnel would be equally agreeable."
In Favor of Fleet
Motley H. Flint, postmaster and
chairman of the fleet subcommittee for
entertainment of enlisted men, said: ,
"I am most strongly In favor of hav
ing a Pacific fleet just the same as an
Atlantic fleet. I was talking with the
commander of a battleship only some
I time ago, and he thought that the fleet
certainly ought to be here. I don't
I see why the United States doesn't
1 wake up to the fact that there is a
Pacific as well as an Atlantic ocean."
General Frank C. Prescott, register
of the Los Angeles branch of the
United States land Office, said:
"The question of this fleet remaining
in these waters or another fleet Just
as strong is for the government to de
cide, of course. As for the question of
having some such fleet on this coast
there can he but one answer from the
people of the west whose trade Is to be
protected.. That there Is a great
necessity for such a power is assured
ly appreciated by American citizens
who wish to pursue their friendly and
peaceable trading on the ocean "with
out any menace from another power."
One of the officers of the visiting
fleet said:
"Get after your congressmen. You
should have sixteen other battleships
all of them to be stationed permanent
ly on this coast. But I appreciate that
It was not the western but rather the
eastern congressmen who prevented
the passing of measures which would
have made it possible to have other
battleships built. However, get after
your congressmen to make their Influ
ence felt at Washington to counteract
that other set of congressmen opposing
such measures— is the only way."

PARIS, April 23.—The Catholics of
France, especially the clergy, are anx
iously awaiting a decision from the
pope regarding the establishment of
mutual aid societies for priests. These
societies, it Is planned, would not only
take over the property belonging to
certain pension funds for aged priests,
amounting to $4,000,000, but, it was re
ported, In a recent amendment to the
recent church bill, they could accept
funds for masses.
Although no definite decision has
been promulgated from Rome, it is
unofficially reported the pope In con
versation with certain French priests,
has expressed himself as disposed to
accept the new arrangement. Fear,
however, is expressed that the oppos
ing dement at the Vatican may frus
trate this new proposition to provide
a more secure future for the Catholic
priests of France.

Ten Thousand Spectators Gather In
Grounds to See Great Fireworks
Display —Dancing Fav
orite Pastime
Yesterday was another record break
ing day at Chutes park, according to
estimates made late last night before
actual receipts had been compiled, and
in the matter of attendance the Chutes
yesterday did a better business than
on Monday or Tuesday, when over
25,000 persons were admitted.
Last night, during the pyrotechnlcal
display, fully 10,000 persons swarmed
Hi, main grounds and baseball arena.
Every bleacher and the entire grand
stand in the latter place were crowded
to their fullest capacity, hundreds
stood on the outside, even when in
formed of the danger from falling sky
rockets, etc., and still other large
crowds swarmed about the lake, pa
vilion, electric swing, merry-go-round
and various concessions. The fireworks
display as usual was good, and the
greater portion of the crowd wit
nessed it.
Scores of enlisted men Indulged in
the terpsichorean pleasures afforded by
the presence of hundreds of pretty
girls willing to be danced with, and
the sailor boys found the dance hall
erne of the principal sources of delight.
But the merry-go-round, electric swing
and other attractions were not without
their scores of patrons, and hilarious
good cheer prevailed until 10 o'clock.
Aside from the general admissions,
although the enlisted nun were ad
mitted free, the Chutes Park com
pany yesterday took in over $12,000.
Judging from the admissions and the
averages of the various side amuse
ments, over $27,000 was taken in at
the Chutes yesterday afternoon and
evening; so, on the whole, the visit
of the Atlantic fleet may be said to
have proven profitable to many Los
Angeles business men, though the total
cost of our entertainment to officers
and men perhaps will exceed the total
circulated by the guests.
Takes in Large Sum
In all. if the estimates can be relied
upon of the past five days, as given
out by officials and employes of the
Chutes park management, that com
pany has taken In over $100,000- not a
small sum—and yet the enlisted men
have had nearly everything free and
did not need to spend much money
to have a royal entertainment.
"It will be a long time," one of the
sailors remarked last night, "before we
get another such a welcome as we
have received In Los Angeles, for
there's very few cities Inclined to treat
us so generously. California people
are; altogether different from those on
the Atlantic coast, for out here we are
treated like men, and everybody is
patriotic anil gives us the best going.
The boys appreciate it, too, and in
the end it will be a great advertise
ment for your city, for hundreds of
them will not only write home to their
sweethearts and parents, praising this
city for its hospitality, but they will
write hundreds of cards and letters
telling of what things are to be seen
here, what a grand country it is, and
so on, until many easterners will be
bound to come here. I believe scores of
US sailors who now are visiting here
ill. within the next ten years, become
residents of your city. I know I will —
and that Just as soon as my enlist
ment expires."
