CHICAGO DRIVE-WHERE IT WILL LAND HER. When the people of Chicago made a giant fight to have the' Columbian expo sition located in their midst, they knew well what they were about. The deni sens of the windy city have the genius and instinct of success. If the New Yorkers had known what was good for them, and had made anything like a combined effort, they could readily have secured the prize. But they were too supercilious for that, and were too bus ily engaged in trying to convert Ward McAllister and his four hundred sons and daughters of tinsmiths and saddlers into brand new shoddy patricians, to pay any attention to so footy a thing as the world's fair. At bottom the people of Gotham really wanted the exposition to be held in their city, but they had become so habituated to the "la de dah" languor that they allowed the fair to slip away from them. Chicago is now reaping the benefit of New York's folly. Since the announcement that the Columbian exposition was to be located in the "windy city" people have poured in there by tens of thousands. The di mensions of the city are visibly spread ing day by day. Real estate has already enhanced from, twenty to fifty per cent., according to location. Rents have ad vanced from fifteen to twenty per cent., and the increased profits of business and the activity of the labor market justify these advances. By the time the exposition shall be fairly under way there is no doubt but that the greatest scence of activity ever chronicled on the American continent will be witnessed in Chicago. Visitors by the hundreds of thousands will crowd in there daily, and they will disperse shekels galore. The windy city will get a " boost" from the exposition which will, in the current de cade, push her up to the near neighbor hood cf New York in population if not in wealth. The commerce of the lakes is destined to attain gigantic dimen sions. It already far exceeds our for- eign commerce. Chicago is now and will probably remain tbe great center of that enormous trade. She will be to the lake ports what New York is to Chicago and Philadelphia. Her Atlantic rival may tower over her in magnitude of the dealings with foreign countries, and the clearing house exhibits of New York may continue to dwarf those of Chicago, nevertheless there aje men of middle age who will live to see the city by the lakes take the primacy of the city by the Bea. If there is one place the people of Los Angeles ought to pattern by it is Chicago. We should light our at present modest rush-light at that splendid flam beau, and prepare to do a little illumi nating on our own account in the "sweet by and by." A correspondent in other columns calls attention to the practice so popular in the San Francisco dailies of alluding to Oakland as the second city in the state. It is hard to resist the conclusion that they do this knowingly, for the table of the populations of our Cali fornia cities was published by authority of the census bureau, and Los Angeles led Oakland as she did every other city on the Pacific coast. It will be a great surprise to those who have watched the course of the press of the Golden Gate— this applies at least to the dailies—when it shall be found doing justice to Los Angeles. Not even the fact that this city and county contribute nearly half a million dollars to the state treasury over and above what they get back in the school fund will procure us the ecantest justice. Well, we are inclined to think that we can stand it. Our ratio of growth is nearly fifty times that of San Fran cisco herself, and we are not downright novices in tooting our own horn. It is not too much to say that it is the enter prise and productions of Los Angeles and the other southern counties that keep California before the eye of the nation and of the world. Tiikre never was a better movement started in Los Angeles than the Tax payers' Protective association. It ought to be energized and expanded. Its mem bership ought to embrace the leading property owners of this city and county. Its effect can only be salutary. Admit ting that there may have been no down right stealing in the knowledge of tho board of supervisors, there is little doubt but that there have been gross ir regularities and extravagance. The same is true of the city government. With El Hammond, the defaulting tax collector, with forged warrants innum erable, and with the appalling total of $25 and upwards of taxation for every man, woman and child in the city of Los Angeles, it is high time that the taxpayers should be on the alert. The accounts of both the city and county should be overhauled from turret to foundation stone. If there has not been thievery there has certainly been extravagance. If there has been both the one should be punished and the other stopped. ITALY'S NAVAL ARMAMENTS — POSSI BILITIES. Now that Marquis Rudini has got his back up again it may be of interest to know how Italy stands if a conflict should follow these rather rasping diplomatic notes. Italy has ten ironclads, five steel war ships and two wooden war-ships, all of the first class; twenty-one war vessels of the second class ; twenty-seven of the third class; fifty ocean torpedo vessels; sixty torpedo boats of various classes ; twenty-three ironclads for coast defense —in all a navy of 258 guns and manned by 16,786 men. This is a pretty formid able showing as compared with the slender navy of the United States. Yet it is well to bear in mind the fact that the Italian ironclads may or may not be serviceable, and the United States has always been remarkably lucky on the seas. Admitting that these bulky ves sels could stand a voyage across the At lantic, their enormous consumption of coal would soon make them helpless, as Italy has no coaling stations on this side of the Atlantic. The perfection to | which submarine torpedo boats have been brought of late years is not gener ally understood. About two months ago an experiment of a remarkable character took place irom the battery, in New York. About, 8 o'clock in the evening tbe inventor of a very destruct ive submarine torpedo jumped off the dock and swam off to a war ves sel lying in the water, and attached the torpedo to it. No one on the ship knew anything about the perilous attachment until the inventor and his friends rowed off to the man-of-war and pointed it out to the captain and officers. If the auto matic apparatus that explodes the tor pedo had been adjusted with that view, there would not have been a scrap of the ship left. It is the possibilities of the torpedo and the equivocal value of iron clads that will impart to the next naval war an exceptional interest, apart from the merits of the issues involved. It is not yet three months since one of the most distinguished admirals of England, in an elaborate article in a leading Eng lish magazine, pronounced the ironclad navy of Great Britain absolutely useless, and had no hesitation in saying that his country had thrown away her money in a most absurd fashion. This gentleman was certainly competent to speak intel ligently on a subject which he had studied exhaustively both in theory and practice. Should Italy and the United States have a brush we would not be left long in doubt as to the efficiency of ironclads. Those ten ironclads and five steel war ships would soon settle the question one way or the other. The board of supervisors had a long seance with Mr. Edgar Moore yesterday. This gentleman was on the defensive, and he labored under the disadvantage of having only started in on his investi gation, and he had probably, besides, a natural desire not to show his hand. During the course of his examination, iv response to a question put by Mr. Ward, Mr. Moore stated that the suppression of important matters on the minutes of the board did not characterize the ses sions of that body since January first of the current year, and we give the keeper of those archives the benefit of this qualification. During the course of his interview with the supervisors he said that he was not correctly represented in the newspaper .accounts of the state ments about the $0000 worth of plumb ing on the old courthouse made before the Taxpayers' Protective association. It is an old and sorry trick to accuse the newspapers of misrepresentation. The gentlemen who are in the habit oi shoot ing their mouths off sometimes do not know exactly what they say until they see it in print. The Herald's re port of what was said at that meet ing was absolutely correct. It ,only failed in that it gave an out line instead of the full, plumping force of the statements. Ihe Taxpayers' Pro tective association is all right. It ought to stay by the works, and Mr. Moore ought to brace himself and be prepared to back up such statements as he may make in a public meeting. There is one thing that cannot be "caved down the bank," and that is that the taxes paid by the citizens of Los Angeles amount to over $25 for every man, woman and child in the bailiwick. This calls for a Tax payers' Protective association, with a vigilance committee on the side. Nothing so entirely pleases our Re publican fellow-citizens of the machine order as stealing an office, from the pres idency down to any unconsidered trifle. After trying their 'prentice hand on counting out Tilden, and succeeding, they are ripe for almost any work in that line. Our readers will remember the pious attempt to count out Governor Boyd, a good Democrat, whom the peo ple of Nebraska elected governor. Boyd, however, got hold of the office and held on to it, notwithstanding Thayer's abor tive efforts to stay in power. Now comes the supreme court of Nebraska and de cides that Boyd is not governor, on the ground that he is not a citizen, and that he must turn the office over to Thayer, and this, notwithstanding the fact that he signed all the acts of the last legisla ture, and has been governor de jure as well as de facto. If Governor Boyd has anything of Old Hickory about him he will politely tell the supreme court to go to hades. There are three depart ments in the government of Nebraska, as in that of the United States, the executive, legislative and judicial, and they are all independent of each other. The man that runs the executive depart ment, if he is nervy, is master of the situation. The latest other exploits of the Republican party have been in stealing the governorship of Connecticut and defeating the popular will in New Hampshire. If Governor Boyd is the all around Democrat we take him to be, he will let go the governorship of Ne braska, to employ the classic language THE LOS ANGELES HERALD' WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 6, 1891. of Dennis Kearney, when the copper bottomed, revised Testament edition of hades freezes over, and not one bisected second before. There aie not wanting indications that the close of the nineteenth century, like that Of the eighteenth, is destined to be stormy. There is a great and uni versal unrest all over Europe. France is of course the nation which most ebul liently represents ebullient senti ments, but the leaveu is working all over the world. Even in the United States the explosive, socialistic elements are seething, although, fortunately, in this country the dangerous elements are not sufficiently conlined to do much damage. The match may be applied here, but there is no tamped down en vironment to give energy to the blast. In this blessed country there can only be a flash and never an explosion for years to come. In Europe it is far dif ferent. Turn where one will in that continent consecrated by the choicest tradition, of history, art, science and civilization, there is an "awful and compacted misery. The episode at Fourmies, and the dramatic incident in the Corps Leg islatif, merely outline a condition of universal discontent. It is as bad, though not as demonstrative, in Ger many as in France, ft is worse in many sections of Austria than in cither. In Russia it reaches an indescribable cli max. That some such tragic and ani mated experiences as those which char acterized the French Revolution one hundred years ago will ensue no reflect ing person doubts. History is said to repeat itself; and it is liable to do this, specially at removes of a century. The republican, democratic sentiment has been pent up for many years. Some time during the current decade it will reach the explosive point, and we may then look for something sensational. Los Angeles is about to astonish the sporting world, and she will do things with a rush. This week, particularly, will be distinguished by great activity. This evening a rod aud gun club will be organized, and its membership will em brace our best and most progressive citi zens. They propose to buy grounds and erect a club house, and to inaugurate regular tournaments on the Keystone plan. It will be the most bang-up club in the state, and we will send a team up north to contest with the champions of that section. The Tennis club has also got a big movement onto itself. It, too, will eiect a club house, and go in for "excelsior." The Bicycle club will like wise come to the front. Altogether this city and county never looked so "peart" and chipper as they do today. These are all gentlemen's sports, and even a precisian cannot help wishing all these enterprises godspeed. United States Marshal Gard, under instructions from Washington, has seized the Chilean steamer Itata, at San Diego, and late last night was chasing an in surgent warship which was seen yester day hovering around the entrance to the harbor. The New Orleans grand jury has made its report on the Italian affair, with the net result that six indictments are made for jury-bribing. The substance of the report is given in our dispatches, and will be found interesting reading. NO AFFAIR OF JOHN BULL'S, Russian Opinion that England Has No Rights in Bering; Sea. Moscow, May s.—The Gazette is indig nant at the English and American press ignoring Russia's connection with the Bering sea matter, and declares that any agreement made without Russia's consent will be worthless. The Gazette speaks with respectful sympathy of the American claims, and says that it is time England was taught that the possession of a powerful fleet does not entitle her to treat every bit of the open sea as her peculiar propeity. The Gazette proposes that America and Russia settle the question without refer ence to England. A TERRIBLE AFFAIR. Three Feople Mortally Wounded by a Murderous Italian. London, May 5.—A terrible affair oc curred at Southport, a watering place on the Irish sea, near Preston. Mr. Saw yer, a landlord, was attacked by an Italian named Cummino. The Italian used a knife with terrible effect. Sawyer defended himself as best he could, with a chair, which was soon smashed, and he was succumbing under the strength of his assailant, when his wife and daughter rushed upon the scene and tried to rescue him. Cummino drew a revolver and fired upon all three, fol lowing up his shots with his knife, and then fled. All three will die. Negotiations Again in Progress. Washington, May 5. —The Post says diplomatic negotiations between the United States and Great Britain, regard ing the Bering sea, are again in progrees, and orders to the revenue cutteis will not be issued for perhaps a week. Boulanger has not learned how to subordinate his vanity while he has been in retirement. Instead of renting a modest villa in the suburbs of Brus sels, as at lirst he intended to do, he has taken a house in the aristocratic Quartier Leopold in that city, with Prince Victor Bonaparte and several diplomatists for near neighbors. In fact, the particular mansion which he is to occupy was at one time the residence of an Austrian minister to Belgium. A Striking Bargain Exhibited at N. W. corner Spring and First..

A FIRE IN PITTBBURQ THAT WAS HARD TO SUBDUE. Several Buildings Entirely Consumed. The Inmates of a Female College Compelled to Decamp—Other Fires. Pittsburg, May 5. —A fire that broke out about 11 o'clock tonight proved one of the most dangerons and stubborn the department has ever encountered. The blaze originated on the lower floor of the great Arbuckle building, on Seventh street, near Duquesne. It is occupied by the Grocers' Supply and Storage com pany, and the seven-story edifice was soon a mass of flames from roof to cellar. The heat was intense, and a high wind swept the fire across to the Pittsburg Female college building, where several score of lady stude.its scurried around getting their belongings together. They were finally escorted to a hotel, and the college buiding was soon destroyed. Then the high walls of the Arbuckle building fell, and the fire caught the steeple of Christ M. E. church, on Penn sylvania avenue. It blazed like a beacon, towering far above the weak stream of water directed toward it. The church was soon a mass of flames. The fire was communicated to other buildings in the vicinity, but the exertions of the department checked it, and at 1:10 a.m. it was believed to be under control. The losses will certainly reach three quarters of a million dollars. At 1:30 a.m. sparks caught a row of tenement houses on Seventh street, and the department is now working to save them. COAL BREAKERS BURNED. Wh.kesbarke, Pa., May s.—Nos. 1 and 4, coal breakers, of the Kingston coal company, at Edwardsville, burned this evening. Loss, $200,000; partially in sured. a $400,000 blaze. Troy, N.

FOREST FIRES. Clauksbi ko, W. Va., May s.—Great forest fires are reported in the vicinity of Davis, Tucker county, and heavy losses will result unless soon extin guished. RESIDENCES DESTROYED. Grass Valley, Cal.. May s.—This morning the residence of Edmund Hcck ing, Empire street, South Grass Valley, was burned. The loss is about $1500; insured. Early yesterday morning a Cottage Hill house, on the old Auburn road, twelve miles south of town, was burned. The occupants barely escaped with their lives. Loss $900; partly in sured.
