SUGGESTION FROM THE
LOS ANGELES is fortunate in hav
ing a mayor fc'ho is always "On
the Job"' and constantly giving
his mind to the business of originating
and suggesting new things for the
benefit of the city whose people have
selected him as its head.
The Herald today publishes an In
terview with Mayor Alexander in
which he makes a very interesting and
what should be turned into a very
important suggestion for the benefit
of the city. The mayor believes that
a committee should be appointed con
sisting of at least five representative
citizens to at once take up system
atically the matter of the consolida
tion of our city and county govern
No man who has studied the situa
tion as it exists today can have any
doubt that the consolidation of the
city and county governments, so that
Los Angeles shall have to bear the ex
pense of only one local government
organization in place of two, is the
next great reform demanding the time
and attention of our citizens. The
present system of city and county
government, where we have two tax
collectors, two assessors and two of
every other department, with their
hundreds of deputies, to do the busi
ness which should be done by one, is
a reproach upon the good sense of our
people, and steps cannot too soon be
taken to change this extravagant and
senseless system to one which will cost
lesa to the taxpayer and at the same
time return a greater result in the
form of efficiency.
We trust that the city council will
act promptly upon the suggestion of
the mayor, that a proper committee
is appointed to take up this most
necessary relorm of our local govern
ment and carry it to a successful con
Los Angeles, in the marvelous prog
ress which it is making in the mat
ter of local government as well as In
material prosperity, cannot afford to
neglect a reform which is dictated by
every consideration of economy and
efficiency, and as the mayor clearly
sees, the present is, above all other
times, the fit period to take up this
matter, for with every portion of tha
country around us desirous of dividing
with us the wealth of water and power
which the aqueduct will bring to Los
Angeles there has never before been
a time when the city could be so sura
of selecting and bringing within its
borders every foot of surrounding ter
ritory which it may require to make
the consolidation of the city and
county governments a success.
IN THE unusual interest over coun
ty affairs the voters of Southern
California should not permit them
selves to overlook the great import
ance of the state contest for associate
justice of the supreme court. No vic
tory over the railroad machine forces
will be complete—indeed, it -would be
very incomplete—unless the courts are
purged of every vestige of machine and
other sinister influence.
The judiciary has, by common con
sent, been taken out of the strife of
party politics. Both of the platforms
of the leading parties in California
have declared for a non-partisan ju
diciary. After this year the names of
the judiciary candidates will appear
in a separate column on the ballot,
without partisan denomination, but
this year, owing to still existing laws
of machine days, the candidates are
named in party columns.
Both parties having thus declared
themselves, you will be Just as good
a Republican or just as goocl a Dem
ocrat, and you will be a better citizen,
if you totally ignore party lines and
cast your ballot solely on the ground
of the candidate's fitness.
In the Republican column you will
find the name of Mr. Harry Melvin.
He la seeking a re-election. William
F. Herrin of the Southern Pacific gave
him his first nomination and now looks
■with fovor on his candidacy for re
In the Democratic column, opposite
Melvin's name, you will find that of

who achieved national fame as the
presiding officer at the notorious graft
trials in San Francisco. He Is a man

civic standards, is against special priv

We ardently advocate the election
of Judge Lawlor to the supreme bench,
over Hairy Melvin, because he is that
kind of a man and judge. We totally
disregard the question of party. We
think we regard the purity and fair
ness of the highest court more than
we do the welfare of any party as such,

we take the same stand as the Good
Government league of Los Angeles
county, composed of men of all par
ties, vhich has indorsed the candidacy
of Judge Lawlor and his running mate,
Benjamin F. Bledsoe.
A vote for these candidate! will be
a vote for an uncontrolled judiciary;
a vote for Melvin, particularly, will be
a vote for one who is on intimate
term with William F Hoi-rin. His
election, in our opinion, would largely

A NATIVE SON
QUITE appropriately the opening
entertainment of this year's an
nual Whiter course at the Young
Men's Christian association will be
given this week by a noted Californian,
Fred Emerson Brooks. Mr. Brooks'
talents are in such demand in other
parts of the country that he is too sel
dom seen and heard and too little hon
ored in his home state.
There is not on the platform today
a more versatile man than the author
of the stirring "Pickett's Chai>ge'' and
many other poems, some of which have
all the quaint originality of James
Whitcomb Riley's and stamp him as
one *t the foremost humorists. As an
orator of the first rank he would be
entitled to wide recognition, and as an
all-around entertainer he needs no bet
ter tribute than the fact that if there
were 465 days in the year he could have
engagements for them.
Not many literary men take to the
platform, but chiefly because their tal
ent does not extend to ability to inter
est an audience. Mark Twain did it
with some success and Hopkinson
Smith is almost as much at home there
as with the brush and pen. George W.
Cable was a failure.
All of which proves Brooks' versa
tility. California ought to get better
acquainted with this native son.
That's just the trouble, Mr. District
Attorney. People are aroused because
too many of the prosecuting officials
all over the country have been regard
ing as "purely civil cases" many that
were manifestly of a more serious kind.
Pardon the intrusion, but if Philip
I). Armour is to oe given a place in
Illinois' hall of fame we suggest Wil
liam Lorimer, O'Neil Browne, "Bath
House John" Cou b -hlin and "Hinky
Dink" Kenna, all f.jmous Illlnoisans.

PLEASED WITH HERALD
Editor Herald: I am pleased with
the stand you have taken in regard
to the explosion and fire of the Times

of your agents here In Huntlngton

hold you as long as you maintain such
a paper. GEORGE M. FLEMING.

PERHAPS THEY DON'T TELL ALL
Editor xierald: Will you kindly tell
me why the papers and the author
ities keep the criminals of the awful
Times disaster so thoroughly and accu
rately and minutely posted in the
meas res adopted to catch them? A
commander of an army would not bo
a great success If he kept hfs adver
sary posted as to his plans or' action.
DR. J. E. MINNEY.
ARMY POST NEEDED
Editor Herald: I agree with R. H.
Barton that we should have an army
post here. When Gen. A. W. Greely
was in command of the department of
the Pacific I wrote to him about it.
He was good enough to answer my let
| ter, said he had already mentioned it
i to the war department, and thought
we would soon have one. Then I was
thinking of it as an attraction, now
I believe It Is a necessity. What wjjuld
our small police force and our two
companies of militia amount to if we
had a serious riot here?

MEXICO AS AN EXAMPLE
Editod Herald: A writer in the Wide
World for August, evidently an ad
mirer of Diaz, tells us that the rur
ales (police) of Mexico have all been
bandits or the sons of bandits who
in early days terrorized the people,
and that "when Diaz became president
It occurred to him that if he could
turn these ruthless 'bandidos' into po
lice they would effectually control hs
subjects. To these rurales Daz just
ly points as a proof of liis undoubted
power tv rule." So, since it is hardly
likely that any considerable number of
people in this part of the world will
feel disposed to adopt "Anti-Fad
dlsf's' 1 idea of the way to deal with
wrongdoers, I would suggest that if she
desires to see her thenr • approximately
carried out she go to Mexico. I
say approximately, because while the
rurales will make it "holl" for the
offenders, their punishment will be
limited to this life.

AGAINST PORTUGUESE REPUBLIC
Editor Herald: The late Father Lam
bert, the greatest controversialist of
his time, complained shortly before
his death of the great international
conspiracy against the Catholic church.
The shameless, almost universal prop
aganda of malicious ■ rror and distor
tion iif everything the Catholic church
has stood for these last twenty cen
turi< is now beginning to bear abun
dant fruit in Europe and will certainly
begin to show Its baleful Influence here.
The American press will do well to
await further developments I of ore ac

Lisbon as bona fide or certain. What
an ntroclous burlesque on republican
Institutions Is this handful of savage
opportunists—lawless agitators tempo

erile monarch! What is the truth?
They are no more republican than
Emma Goldman, Herr Herkmunn or the
late Herr Most. The church, enslaved
under the monarchy, Is now made the
victim of unbridled fury that recalls
the dark days of Nero and Diocletian.

Editor Herald: I have just been
reading 1 in the American Magazine Ida
M. Tarbell's article on "The Mysteries
and Cruelties of the Tariff" and the
"The tariff question," as James G.
Blame said, \i^ien he smashed his new
silk hat on the table of the 'committee
room, "will be the ruination of the Re
publican party," and that wise states
man knew exactly what he was talk
It is a fact that whenever there has
been an attempt made to lower the
tariff on any commodity the tariff bar
ons send up a howl that the business
of that special commodity will be
ruined; that the wages of the laboring
men in that special industry will be
cut down to less than a living wage,
"which Is a bare-faced He."
When the duty on quinine was taken
off some thirty years ago the chem
ical works sent their lobbyists, with
plenty .of "Influence," to Washington
to save their business "from utter de
struction." What was the result?
The duty came off just the same. Has
that Industry been ruined? Have
wages been cut? Look at them today.
Was it dry rot or tommy rot?
The same can be said of the free
hides —business boomed, ten millions
of leather goods were Bhlpped abroad
the first year. Were wages cut? The
"steal," beg pardon, the "steel" in
dustry, got a raise about that time,
the Iron workers at Plttsburg had
their wages reduced and —then came
a strike, a strike so severe that shot
and shell were brought Into requisi
tion in order to save the plants of
these poor devils (the tariff barons)
and give them a chance to—say their
Today those men at Washington,
who frame our tariff laws, can well
afford to pay $5 or $10 for a suit of

South Pasadena, Cat
(From I.o» Anielei Expren)
It Is now a little over two since
the Express editorially appealed to
District Attorney Fredericks to do his
plain duty as district attorney. In
common with all decent men and wom
en who were appalled by the evidences
of tncompetency In the district attor
ney's office, this newspaper waa deeply
concerned lest the men who had
brought dishonor on Los Angeles should
escape all punishment. The Express
stood for the vindication of the out
raged law, and it was as ready to up
hold Mr. Fredericks as Mr. Woolwlno
In any sincere effort to see Justice done.
By way of evidencing the fact we
quote from an editorial printed October
District Attorney Fredericks, hav
ing withdrawn the offer made to
Mr. Woolwine when the latter ac
cepted It, will himself conduct all
the cases before the grand Jury and
guide that capable body In such in
vestigations as It may see fit to un
dertake. It is not a matter of great
consequence to Los Angeles by
whom good results are secured. It is
a matter of great consequence that
the men who have broken the law
shall be compelled to obey the law.
And it Is a matter of the very high
est consequence that officials who
have broken oaths to execute the
law shall cease to protect, against
the law, men who made a wicked
business of violating the law.
We venture to express the hope
that these declarations will receive
the official approval of the district
attorney of Los Angeles county.
We proceed upon the assumption
that they will.
The Express, then as now, was con
cerned in establishing the supremacy
of the law as against an organized con
spiracy of officers who protected vice.
It was concerned In redeeming Los
Angeles from shame and dishonor, and
It called on the district attorney to do
his plain duty. We hold him now to
be unfit to rataln the office he holds
and utterly undeserving of re-election
to it, because he completely failed in
the discharge of that duty.
Whatever the cause of that failure,
whether it was incompetency or aught
else, the fact of the failure remains.
We unhesitatingly declare our convic
tion that had Tom Woolwlne been dis
trict attorney in that crisis, the officials
who escaped punishment because of
Fredericks' lamentable incompetency
would have been punished instead of
being, as they are, free to support
Fredericks for re-election.
Greatly concerned by the evidence of
District Attorney Fredericks' Incapaci
ty, and willing for the time to believe
that his incompetency arose from lack
of knowledge, we publicly but respect
fully laid before him the sections of tho
state law bearing on the situation.
The Express pointed out in what
manner the violations occurred. Sub
sequent grand Juries declared that the
law in prohibition of disorderly houses
was systematically Violated. There
wasn't an honest man or woman in all
Los Angeles who did not know that
syndicated vice had corrupted govern
If Fredericks didn't know It, his own
grand Juries gave him knowledge. One
reported the facts In express terms.
Fredericks said there was nothing in
them. Subsequently the grand Jury
confirmed Woolwlne completely. And
Fredericks, who would not let Wool
wlne bring the guilty to Justice, himself
frittered away the opportunity.
October 5, 19'". the Express reviewing
the situation, asked Fredericks "What
are you going to do about it?"
And this was the final paragraph of
Let the answer be one of action
Instead of talk —action directed/ at
the man who protects vice, not at
the man who would prosecute it.
That was two years ago. It Is now
October, 1910. Fredericks is the same
incompetent Fredericks he waa then.
He has accomplished nothing.
And he—he is on the stump still vin
dictively assailing not the men who
protected vice, but the men who sought
to prosecute it.
Such an incompetent, Inefficient, in
capable officer does not deserve re
election. He has forfeited public con
fidence and earned his sure defeat.
