The Marysvilie "Appeal," 'Willows ."Journal" and Nevada City "Herald" second the urgent appeal of the "Rec ord-Union" that the May session of the convention of County Supervisors be at tended by every Supervisor in the State, such councils being as important and more beneficial than sessions of the Legislature, Also, that the convention petition the Legislature to make these annual meetings compulsory and a State or county charge. The Oakland "Enquirer" indorses the idea of the con vention, but adds that County Survey ors and District Attorneys ought to at tend. Not so. Do not overload the council. Let the Supervisors consult together as such unhampered by law yers and engineers. The "Enquirer" thinks that this convention idea would be good if extended to annual meetings of Mayors of cities, City Engineers, Street Superintendents and City Audi ors. Possibly. But there would be dan ger of overdoing the thing. Cities differ very much more in needs and systems from counties. The latter operate under a State law, few cities do. The Yuba City "Farmer" agrees with this journal in the statement that the first requisite in promoting the good roads movement Is knowledge on the part of the promoters and builders as to' what a good road is. Without that, we now repeat, no amount of money ap propriated will bring us to good road reform. It is the case of knowing how as much If not more than having the means. The Stockton "Mall" compliments the "Record-Union" with being loyal to the higher ideal of journalism, and faith ful to home interests. That really is as high praise as it is possible to give. It does not, however, quicken vanity in the "Record-Union," for were it vain if would lose sight of an essential ideal. Really, fidelity to ideals means only that which ought to inspire every man and woman, namely, training activity towards standards still above us. The Fresno "Expositor," which has many a sharp word of criticism for the "Record-Union," compliments it by say ing that the absence of sensationalism and "rot" from our columns sets an ex ample that San Francisco papers well might follow. Which Is but another way of saying that the best paper is the decer.t paper, and that no amount of blowing. Illustrating and "heading up" can make indecency tolerable. The "Record-Union's" protest against the annoyance felt by all newspapers because of the constant appeal to them to forward some social interest or money-making entertainment, or pri vate "snap," without use of the regular advertising columns, seems to have found an echo in about every' newspaper office in the State, as our contempo raries far and near are quoting the pro test suid concurring. The San Bernardino "Sun" is with us in the declaration that men should be ware of those who are forever an nouncing their suspicions and doubts of the honesty of others. That class of people will, as a rule, bear watching and distrusting. The Riverside "Press" quotes the editorial in full, and says it fits that locality to a "T." The Red!amis "Cltrograph" man has been speaking his mind thus: Tho northern part of the State has in finitely greater resources than we have in the south. Yet our country is grow ing up in wealth and population at an unparalleled rate of speed, and up there everything is at a standstill. Why is it? What you want is some of our spirit of enterprise, and particularly local pride and patriotism. There is nothing modest about that. Whatever truth there is in 1t la well pUwted by •elf-esteem But then, that is a good quality, if one has not too ; much of it. The Bakersfleld "Californian" charac terizes the fight In Lok Angeles about the rival harbors as "insensate." and adds that the right thing to do is to unite and get all that can be had to benefit Los Angeles; that it will harm bkf one, but be a distinct benefit to have both improvements carried on. That is the rub of it, neighbor; "it will harm no one," but the chief end and aim in life for the average anti-railroad howler is re harm someone, no matter how much it harms the community also. The Tulare "Register" comments on the suggestion of the Kern "Echo" that hereafter all streets and roads should be laid out in three parts, one for wagons, a path for bicycles and a side path for pedestrians, and says that in the San Joaquin Valley there Is plenty of room for all that. It adds that a row of trees should be planted in the middle of the highway. That is good, for then one side of the road would be shaded in the morning and the other in the after noon. That proposition was made for the road law before the last Legislature, but the wiseacres simply laughed at the idea. They could not be convinced that trees on each side of the way sequester a great many acres from production and cost far more than trees in the "middle of the road." The "Register" Some day it will be a pleasure to live in this valley, for these things will be done and all the old kickers will be dead. Referring to the high-hat law of Ohio, the Oakland "Tribune" says: The law is a ridiculous one, and will probably never be enforced. The cus tom of wearing tall headgear in a theater or concert-room is also ridic ulous. The only effective remedy is -arcasm and ridicule. We have a dim recollection that pre cisely the same was said of the Aus tralian ballot law. It was stigma tized as "ridiculous." So, too, when the bicycle came on, the sneer was that It was "ridiculous" and "none but chil dren and fools would be seen astride the things." The law or ordinance to pit vent consumptives attending pub lic assemblies was pronounced "ridicu lous," but is many times law now. Sar casm and ridicule have t>een tried on the fair ones with the high hat with out avail, why not then a bit of sever ity? What was it the old farmer said to the boy in the apple aree: "If soft words will not bring you down, nor yet bits of turf, I will see what virtue there is in stones." The boy came down. The Santa Ana "Blade," in all seri ousness, suggests that Miss Anna Shaw catch her breath in the woman suffrage campaign long enough to preach to the women the virtue of ceasing to afflict men toy wearing high hats in churches, theaters and other places of public assembly. Here is a hint that perhaps Anna may win some votes by accomplishing the reform re ferred to. Not at au a bad idea. When woman accords man his rights, he will be far more amenable to argument re garding her claims. Until she proves herself able to rise superior to the tyr rany of a senseless fashion, she cannot expect to be accorded still greater prlv-t ileges. The Pasadena "Star" would have its county obtain a tract of land, gather upon it the unemployed, such as wish to come, comfortable shelter and good food in plenty, but making them work the land and do other labor to pay for their maintenance. The Idea is that It would enable the honest unemployed to get support on the farm until th'-y oouJd do better. The vicious who would not work could be herded Into gang* and compelled to labor for their i and lodging. The "Star" believes that such a plan would end the tramp evil in that county, and cost less than the present system of relief to the un employed, the cost of criminal prose cution and the keeping of vagrants in jail. Indeed, the "Star" figures out profit for the county, enough to soon pay for the land and equipment. It cites the like experiment by the Sal %-at;on Army in Xew Jersey. The plan might work. But here- is one thing that must not be lost sight of by our contemporary; it is a living principle, :.aiaely, that work under all public re lief of thai order must be made dis tasteful, else it will pauperize the re cipient. The work must be so hard and of such a character as to make it de sirable to get away from it and into thing l-. : ter. In several countries this has been demonstrated. It is found thru public relief by work where the employment is pleasant and easy Is a positive cruelty to the recipient. Ttte whole subject was exploited in New York years ago by the State Board of Charities and also in Kngland, and the D< iusion we have stated was reached, and has not since been departed from. WOMEN AND METHODISM. f The woman question was tangled up ! with Methodism before it became an important political factor. Early in the history of American Methodism the .. mand at woman to be heard in church | (-ounoils set the brethren by the ears, , tlvaiiih It is fair to say that the friends |of the woman's side of the case were at ! first very few. But the women have listed from year to year, and in re nt times they have won partial vic t< ries, Mid now the annual conferences are ench year stirred up over the prop •i to admit women as delegates to the i.;. neraJ Conference, the chief legis lative body of the church. The conference of 1892 or 1893, we be lieve, decided against the proposition by a heavy majority, but this has not discouraged the women, and they are pushing their claims as vigorously as ever. They hold that, as they are numer |i ally the stronger sex in the church, they should have representation in its' legislative bodies. That this Is based on moral as well as legal right; that to rt fuse them representation Is to deny equity and defy the law of common jus tice. The opponents of this view fall back upon the New Testament and quote St,, Paul against the women, since he de clared they must keep silence in the SACRAMENTO DATLT RECORP-TJNIOX. SUNDAY, APRIL 12, 1896. churches; that they should neither teach nor usurp authority over man. To this the women reply that St. Paul's day and this day are widely apart. "We are not the women of whom he spoke, and then, woman's condition, socially and before the law then and now, are widely variant. St. Paul did not understand women, and was rather a woman-hater than otherwise; in fact, the church has admitted women to be teachers and preachers, and gladly welcomes them into the pulpit as such." Their opponents respond with the tra ditions of the church and its law since the day it was first written. But the women reply: "Is it a good reason that anything should remain as it is, because it always has been so?" Now the Gen eral Conference meets next month, and the women and their advocates are go ing before it again to renew the battle for representation by female voice and vote. They will come up this time for tified by votes and expressions of the church here and there, giving them much strength, and these expressions the General Conference cannot ignore wholly. The first step the woman ad vocates will take will be in the direc tion of demand for a decree that women may be ordained to the ministry and capacitated to take pastorates. Sec ondly, they will demand that a leveling process be started that will obliterate sex discrimination from the laws of the church, and place men and women on perfect equality in the church ad ministration. The outcome of the approaching con test is awaited with much anxiety by the women suffragists in California, since they claim that whatever the de cision it will considerably influence pub lic judgment in the matter of extension of the suffrage to women, a proposition upon which we are to vote in this State before many moons pass. But however the church may pass upon this question, we cannot concede that it will serve the suffragists any good end in the campaign going on. What a church does relative to ordain ing woman for the ministry, or giving her a voice in the administration of church economy, cannot cut any figure in the decision of the question whether it is for woman's best interest that she go to the polls and take up active work in the field of State politics. In these matters church and State are wide apart, and should so remain, and we be lieve that woman's fitness to vote in church councils can have no place in the determination of what is for the best interests of woman and of so ciety in the political field. A SUPERSTITION EXPLODED. Mysticism has received another blow and priestcraft has once more been ex posed. The Jesuit priests La Hue and Qabet very many years ago,penetrated to parts of China and into Thibet where the stranger's foot had never gone before. In the travel in China La Hue was enabled to go into sections and study conditions from which all other white men have ever since been excluded. It will be remembered by readers of the remarkable stories pub lished by those priestly explorers—and their sincerity no one has ever ques tioned, while their recitals have been generally accepted as true, especially those of La Hue, a copy of whose work on China we have—that they tell of a time spent at the Lamasery of Kun bum, in Thibet, near the source of the Yellow River. It was there that they saw the "Sacred Tree" of the Llamas. On the leaves of this tree they found Buddhist symbols which they believed had grown there, and there|*»e to be messages from the other world to man. These leaves they declared the Buddhist priests valued so highly that fabulous sums offered would not tempt them to tart with them in barter to strangers. BUt they sold them at high prices to their own people for healing and preached that the leaves were marked by supernatural powers by order ,of the Great First Cause Himself. These stories were much discredited when given to the world, and La Hue was supposed to have been imposed upon by fairy tales. But recently M. Edouard Blanc, who has traveled much in Central Asia, has returned from that part, and confirms the story of La Hue. He says that the tree does bear the leaves marked, according to the claim of the Llamas, mystically, j and that they do claim it is done by j divine power. These leaves are sold at I great price to the people, and are re- I ceived by them in perfect faith for healing purposes. Even the wood of the tree he found to bear the mystical j markings in Buddhist symbols. But If. Blanc went Into careful in vestigation and made application of unfailing tests, and has been able to es tablish that the leaves are "fakes." The priests mark thorn as found, and do tne work so cleverly that imposition is easy. He says the Llamas are stud ents of medicine, becoming so the better ito fasten themselves upon the people; that knowing how a healer is esteemed they combine the functions of doctor and priest. But they know also the power of superstition and how among a people outside of civilization as are theirs such a device as the "Sacred Tree" would be received, hence the use by them of the leaves of the so-called mystical tree. There are some 2,000 Llamas in Thi bet, and they perpetrated this tree swindle with full knowledge among all of them that it is a fraud. It has come down to them through ages of tradi tion and injunction to keep it secret, and the cheat has never been discov ered or even suspected by the people over whom they exercise such absolute power. The markings on the "tree of life" are clearly the works of human hands. While easily deceiving the Thibetans they were not sealed against the wit of a shrewd Frenchman like M. Blanc. The Orientals carry the tradition that the tree of life in the. Garden of Eden was cruciform, so in this case the sym bols on the Llamas' tree partake of the cruciform. But the Llamas are not alone with their tree of life' and healing. /India, has its Bod hi tree and China has a mystical tree also. Tree worship has prevailed in many parts of the globe t and among'those wanderers, the gyp sies, to this day there is veneration, almost worship, of trees. The Druids held trees in profound reverence and trained their growth into forms of re ligious symbols. Throughout the Orient 1 there are superstitions among the tribes and peoples relative to trees, and even upbrf our own continent the re mains of tree, worship or veneration are not wanting. The metric system bill has passed the lower house of Congress and will ■unquestionably . soon become a law. It has been optional to use the metric system In legal documents filed with the Government. But it is now provided that in all Government departments the use of the system shall begin on the Ist of July, and that on and after January 1, 1901, no other system of measures, weights and capacity shall be used in Government offices and depart ments. That will, of course, bring the metric method into general use, since the several States will for convenience gradually conform to the Federal standard. It will, therefore, be neces sary to begin at once the thorough in struction of all school children in the metric system. It will take the five years and more to bring the rising gen eration to easy use of the system, while as for the adult population only a small portion of it will even attempt to understand it. Indeed, while It is not so very difficult to comprehend, still it will be very hard to set out of the mind the old methods and substitute the new. Practically all men of forty or fifty years of age will continue to speak of feet, miles, gallons, ounces, pounds, tons, and area and capacity according to the present standards. Some of the younger men may fall into the new sys tem, and those in Government employ ment will be compelled to make a study of it. It is taught, in a way, in the schools now, but not with that thor oughnesss and practical illustration that is now to be necessary. Progress ive Boards of Education will not neglect a day after the new bill becomes a law In preparing for the thorough instruc tion of school children in the metric system in public interest, and in the interests of the pupils in the common schools as well. According to the "Medical Record," which has been following the exper iments with special interest, there is some reason to believe that there has been real progress made in treating for typhoid fever with antitoxine serum. It seems that Professor Chantemesse of the Pasteur Institute has gone so far as to be able to make the following in teresting report of progress: Since the month of June last year I have immunized several horses against the typhoid virus. The serum that I obtained possesses a preventive power so greet that one-fifth of a drop with whtck'a guinea pig was inoculated twen ty-four hours beforehand protected it effectively against the dose of typhoid virus which was mortal for other ani mals whjch had not been inoculated. After having assured myself that this serum was preventive and curative for animals, and that it had no bad effects whatever, either on them or on man in good health, I utilized it in treating three typhoid patients. Seven days after the beginning of the injections these three patients were restored to health. 1 Of'course, three cases treated do not establish the correctness of the theory involved, but they go towards the making up of a number that can be ac cepted as proving what is hoped for. What we must look forward to is the further, pursuit of the subject by this aLsUujsui£he.d scientist, until he shall have demonstrated that at last the dreaded typhoid may be thiottled and robbed of most of its terrors. The friends of the Chicago Permanent Arbitration Committee fad are losing something of their enthusiasm. They find that while the people are not op posed to arbitration in special cases, they are not coming over to the "per manent" proposition with a rush. The truth is that the people understand that the adoption of the Chicago idea would mean practical annexation of this coun try to England. We would be called on to submit every question in which Eng land thought we had an interest to ar bitration before a semi-alien board, while questions which England con sidered wholly local to herself, though we might hold that we were interested in them, she would deny to the perma nent committee. It would be a game of heads I \\ in, tails you lose. , CHURCH SEEVICES TO-DAY. (At 11 a. m. and 7:30 p. m., except other wise stated.)

We have often been much impressed with the beauty, sweetness and wisdom of those charming paragraphs and short essays by the brothers Dare, Augustus and Julius Charles, published In a small volume entitled "Guesses at Truth by Two Brothers." This little volume ought to be in the hands of every youth in the land. The book was first published in England in 1824 and again in 1826, 1835 and 1838, and was reprinted by Macmillan & Co. in 1884. In that vol ume you will find a thousand texts, texts that seem to prick the under standing and set thought into a gener ous flow. By all means hunt up that little volume and consult it for texts upon which to enlarge and subjects upon which to think. It will be a splen did training exercise for you. We give you a few extracts on friendship: "Friendship is love, without either flowers or veil." "In thinking what we are to do for our friend we are not to look merely or mainly at the manner in which his feelings will be affected at the mo ment, but to consider what will, on the whole and ultimately, be best for him, so far as our judgment can ascertain it." "Friendship closes its eyes, rather than see the moon eclipst; while malice denies that it is ever at the full." * * * Eds.
