Persons who take the Los Angkles Daily Herald in Southern California and most localities of Arizona and New Mexico get all the important local and telegraphic news from twenty-four to thirty-six hours in advance of the San Francisco papers. The president is now down at his desk, his oratorical spasm has been care fully treated, and the American people once more breathe freely. "The pink-eyed dude who runs the Evening Star on week days, and on Sun days instructs the Almighty how to run the universe," is the very delicate and complimentary way in which a Santa Barbara editor designates his esteemed rival. ____________ It is a pleasant thing to know that Colonel Blanton (sometimes rendered Blatant) Duncan still lives, and that he has come to the rescue of Professor Tot ten in putting the millenium on a fair basis for 1899. There is something in knowing just where one stands, and when it is a case of the whole world and the rest of mankind the proposition as sumes momentous importance. Doubt less this interesting event will be ush ered in after "a time, and times and half a time," to employ the well-guarded language of the Apocalypse. Again the question recurs, the great swing around the circle being happily over, who puts up the $40,000 which the presidential junketing undoubtedly cost ? A long train of Pullman cars, fitted up with Sybaritish magnificence, comes high. Somebody must have been re sponsible for it, and the question is, who? Such things are always paid for by somebody or in some shape, and the consideration must either have been money or the expectation of favors to come. The true inwardness of this business would interest the public greatly. All the trains leading to the seashore were thronged yesterday, and the extra trains to Santa Monica, lately put on by the Southern Pacific, were availed of to their fullest capaciiy. All that the city by the sea now needs in order to start a rattling boom is a wharf, with the steamers stopping there as of old. This is likely to be the case very shortly, as Senator Jones is himself determined to build a wharf if nobody else does. Re dondo, also, is in the full tide of popular favor and business prosperity, her excel lent railway facilities doing much to put her in the swim. It now looks very much as if there would be two vacancies on the United States bench on the Pacific coast shortly. Speculation has long been busy with the retirement of Judge Sawyer, and Hon. W. W. Morrow and a number of other distinguished gentlemen have been named as his successor. Mr. Mor row's name, however, has also been as sociated with the mission to Japan, and if he preferred that position he could doubtless have it. From all accounts Judge Hoffman is likely to soon letire from his onerous position, and that will leave another place for some aspiring gentleman. The Republicans have cer tainly had remarkable luck in filling judicial positions, and in creating them, when no vacancies existed, in order to fill them. Los Angeles is in some danger of los ing the reputation which she has late ly acquired of being a law-abiding city. During the last four days we have had two sensational murders. That of Miller, in the back room of the Carle ton saloon, night before last, is mysterious in the extreme. According to the most care ful investigation, the crime must have been committed about nine or half past nine o'clock, in a little cardroom adjoin ing the billiard-room, which was crowded during the entire evening and up to the time of the discovery of the body. This apartment was being con stantly passed and repassed by the pat rons of the saloon. Miller could even be heard to snore. And yet there was ap parently no intimation of the deadly incident to any one on the outside. Two mysterious disappearances complete the record of the four days. Tub health of the people of Los An geles is very much threatened just now by the shameful condition which' our streets are allowed to be in. We have been at great pains to make passable thoroughfares, and filth is allowed to accumulate on them to an unheard-of extent. This is frequently the case to a distressing degree on Second street, be tween Spring and Broadway, and on both of these latter streets in the most crowded portions of the city. The odors arising from this densely crowded part of the city are so noisome that they are injurious to the health and absolutely annihilative of the comfort of those who are obliged to do business and to live in it. In this district two of our prin cipal hotels are located, and visitors must receive a very poor impression of Los Angeles through that most sensi tive organ, the nose. What is the mat ter with the street superintendent? If it is not possible to flush these streets they could at least be kept thoroughly swept. The practice of hitching horses on the sidewalks to the extent to which it is carried in Los Angeles is simply intolerable. In other cities mat ters are regulated differently. THE CHILEAN CIVIL WAR. The insurgents who are now waging war against Balmaceda deserve the sym pathies of all liberty-loving people. No doubt that under the strict neutrality principle our government is pureuing the incumbent course in trying to catch the Itata, but no one who takes a cor rect view of the question at issue in Chile will be.sorry if the chase of the Charleston is barren of results. Balmaceda, as president of the Re public, undertook to perpetuate his power by exercising his prerogative in warping the constitution, and to name his successor, who would have really be come his factotum or tool. The congress of Chile resisted this effort to violate the fundamental principle and Balmaceda used his power as chief of the army and navy to force the congress to yield to bis illegal and revolutionary methods. The Chileans are a brave, intelligent and spirited people. They rose to arms and espoused the cause of congress, and were joined in their determination to resist the attempt of Balmaceda to trample on the liberties of their country by a portion of the army and nearly the entire navy. Santiago, the capital, has been held in subjection by the despot, whilst the fortifications of Valparaiso have been strong enough to keep that port in his possession. Wjth the richest portions of Chile oppressed by his arms, Balmaceda has had the advantage of almost unlimited resources to draw upon, and with these he has been enabled to hold together a very large organized but mercenary army. The patriots of the country have gone over to those who are in insurrec tion, and the courage and determination with which they have kept up the war, and created a formidable land force, and a powerful fleet to scour the seas, have encouraged their friends in the hope that they will yet succeed in deposing the usurper, and restoring to their coun try the constitution and liberties which he has so shamefully violated and be trayed. We want to see our country faithful to its international obligations; but we hope that the Itata will speed to Iquique, without interception or mis hap, and that the good ship Charleston will return to us with unshot guns, and be preserved to a time when she can signalize her impregnability and tbe gallantry of her officers and crew in some action of which we shall be proud as a liberty-loving people. Who could throw up his cap and shout hozannah if the administration should succeed in seizing the few stores the Itata is carry ing to the hungry patriots at Iquique who are fighting for their rights and their liberties? "It is not generally known in this city," says yesterday's Times, "that a brother of Dye's was hung for murder in Sacramento some years ago, for kill ing old man Tullis, the public admin istrator." It is very true that such a "fact" is not generally known in this city, nor in any other city. The reporter then goes on to dish up a mess of stuff which would do discredit to the merest tyro in knowledge of current events in this state; such as that "Troy Dye was at the head of a gang of hard cases who took it upon themselves to kill off a number of old Californians who had dis pleased them in some way." It would seem, according to our veracious histor ian, that this Troy Dye gang had been in feud with their victims on account of numerous rows which had occurred "in San Francisco way back in the fifties," and that the gang had their headquar ters on an island in the Sacramento river. There have been few criminal causes in thiß or any other country that have excited more intense pub lic interest than the developments in this, very celebrated trial. Troy Dye, not Tullis, was the public administrator of Sacramento in 1878. He also was the proprietor of a saloon on X street. Hia mother and other relatives lived in Yolo county. They were respectable people and did their utmost to save their kinsman from the consequences of his cold-blooded crimes. Business was slack in the pub lic administrator's office, and Troy Dye conceived the astonishing idea that if he could kill some rich old bachelors, who had no relatives in California to take charge of the estates, he could offi cially administer upon them and trans fer their property to himself. In pur suance of this extraordinary conception of his official powers, he made out a list of victims, the first of whom was a rich old farmer who ranched on Sherman Island. He took two others into (he murderous conspiracy, built a duck boat and proceeded to Tullis's place, was kindly received by the old man, and murdered him in cold blood. Troy Dye and a Swede named Andersen were tried, convicted, and executed for the atrocious crime. Another member of the gang effected his escape, and has never been heard of since.- The careful reader of our version of this celebrated case, will probably be able to detect a few slight and unimportant inaccuracies in the historical account of this remark able criminal event as given by tbe Times. Hit would be a great pity if there were not, every now and then, something of the character of a tempest in a teapot to agitate the people of San Francisco. If the people of the Golden Gate are distinguished for one thing more than another is is for the awful sense of pro priety that has always characterized THfc LOS ANGELES HERALD; MONDAY MORNING, MAY 18, 1891. them. Some rather amusing histories could be written about the social life of that city, which would perhaps astonish people from the staid east or Europe. But whatever may have happened in the past, the haut ton of San Francisco is severe and censorious to a degree, illustrating the old idea of tbe devil turned precisian. The lat est absurdity in that highly moral city is the hullabaloo which it has been sought to raise be cause Mrs. Will Crocker gave a break fast to the Bernhardt. This seems to have sent a thrill of horror down the marrow of the high-cast dames of that most precise of American cities. It is to be presumed that the breakfast was a most toothsome affair, and that the feast of reason and flow of soul were accom paniments of a faultless cuisine. No doubt the genius of the divine Sarah was at its perihelion, and that the corus cations of wit rivaled in brilliancy the sparkle of the wine. That being the case, everybody ought to be sat isfied, Mrs. Crocker because she has succeeded in getting herself more talked about than any woman in San Fran cisco, the Bernhardt, because she has had a delicious repast served by a charm ing hostess, the Mrs. Grundies because they have had an opportunity to scold and find fault, and the general public b ( ecause they have had a hearty laugh at the absurdity of it all. It is quite ap parent that Mrs. Will Crocker knows a thing or two about attaining fame at a bound, and her cool audacity marks her out for a social leader of the first emin ence. Our esteemed contemporary, the Na tional City Record, has started in to take the Los Angeles press in hand for daring to speculate on the prob abilities of the action of Con gressman W. W. Bowers when it comes to seeing justice done to the interests of Los Angeles county. It calls this inno cent amusement, "indulging in un called-for flings at the congressman-elect of this district." For our part, we have always supposed that we had treated the Hon. W. W. B. with distinguished con sideration. Knowing the gentleman personally very well, and knowing the peculiar fervor of his devotion to San Diego, and in view of the fact that he is no longer in the Sixth district, of which Los Angeles is a constituent part, we have had the hardihood to express the opinion that Mr. Bowers will not be likely to suffer any mental rupture from his efforts in behalf of Wilmington harbor and kin dred matters. It may be that we are wrong. If such shall prove to be the fact the Herald will be most willing to acknowledge its error. Meanwhile, we must say that we have no recollection of having accused Mr. Bowers of having been a horse-thief or of any other grave departures from the ordinary code of morality. He seems to be all right. The only question at issue is how we stand. Mr*. Wakeman aud Her Work. The Society for Political Stndy was formed about five years ago, its object being the study of municipal govern ment. After the first year a course of historical study was undertaken by the advice of the committee, but it was unsuccessful, and when Mrs. T. B. Wakeman became its president the cur rent topics of the day were taken up, and the society has flourished ever since. It holds weekly meetings at the house of one of its members, Mrs. Johnston, on Stuyvesant square, and after the read ing of a paper a discussion follows. Mrs. Wakeman is eminently fitted to be the president of this wide awake society, for she is a strong advocate of women's clubs and keeps up with the newest ideas on serious questions. Formerly a member of Sorosis, Mrs. Wakeman re signed some years ago, finding her household duties and family cares re quired her exclusive attention, but now that her children are grown she has re sumed her interest in various public questions, and besides 1 being president of the Society for Political Study she is a member of the Woman's Suffrage league and the Ladies' Health Protective association, and, with other energetic and philanthropic women, is trying to form a bureau of justice for the purpose of having women present at the trial of women in court. The bureau when fully organized will hire respectable women to be present on these occasions, so that no woman will be tried alone without one sympathizing woman by her side. Mrs. Wakeman is a member of the old Ludlum family that has lived on the same land at Oyster Bay, L. 1., for about 200 years. Since her marriage she has lived in this city, part of the time in Harlem, but she now lives in a cozy, homelike house in West Nineteenth street. She has three chil dren—a married son and two daughters, one of whom is a clever artist. Mr. T. B. Wakeman is a brilliant lawyer, and takes an active interest in the scientific temperance question, and is a member of the Nineteenth Century club. Mrs. Wakeman has a sweet, bright face, with deep earnest eyes and dark hair that is just beginning to turn gray. She is an earnest advocate of clubs for women, and says that she wishes every woman might belong to at least one. They give woman something to think about besides mere material necessities, enlarging their minds and making them more companionable to their husbands and brothers.—New York World.

Sweep, Obi Sweep. BLOODHOUNDS FAIL. A Fruitless Attempt to Trail Miller's Murderer. Was the Terrible Crime Com mitted for Revenge? The Affair Continues to lie One of Mystery. The Work of the Police Yesterday—Mrs. Miller Very 111—The Snoring of the Murdered Man Heard Up to 8:30—Ills Large Estate. The murder of George Miller was the main topic of conversation around town yesterday. The whole matter is still shrouded in mystery. All sorts of theories have been set afloat, but they fall to pieces with a little investigation. Chief Glass and his corps of detectives worked diligently on the case all day yesterday. The developments thus far are very meagre. The police depart ment is eitfr lged in working on a clue but of course were very reticent when questioned in regard to the matter. The murder was undoubtedly com mitted within half an hour of 9 o'clock. One of the young men in the adjoining room to the one where Miller lay asleep on the sofa, states that he heard some one snoring in the next room as late as 8:30 o'clock. The blood stains on the floor showed that the deed must have been done at leaet two hours before it was discovered. The barkeeper on watch at the Carlton during the day is George Gehrkins. He states that the deceased had more money on him than he gave to his partner, George Miles, before going to sleep. As near as can be ascertained there were about fifteen people in the Carlton at 6:30, when George Miller handed over his money across the bar to George Miles. Soon after Miller went into the cardroom and went to sleep on the sofa. The majority of the men in the room must have seen Miller hand over the money to Miles, as he acted in a very boisterous manner. None of the men who saw Miller give up the money would therefore have killed him for the purpose of robbery. Yet the assassin must have been in the Carlton when Miller went into the card room to go to sleep, otherwise he could not have been able to locate his victim. The Carlton has been the resort of several tough citizens, but why any of them should kill Miller is a mystery, especially as it was a notorious fact that they used to beg trom the old man in a most systematic manner. Miller was an easy prey for the professional dead beat, and gave up many a hundred dol lars to the sharks which infested his saloon. Soon after daylight yesterday morn ing Coroner Weldon was out with a pair of bloodhounds and two policemen, on the supposed track of the murderer. Taking up the trail at the back door of the Carleton, the dogs followed it for some distance, but finally the animals were at fault, and the scent was lost entirely. During the forenoon the neighborhood of the saloon and the backyard was carefully searched, but without discov ering anything, or if anything was found the police did not make it known. It was hoped that a search of the yard J would reveal the hiding place of the in j strument of death, whatever that may have been, but in that the police were disappointed. Coroner Weldon and Dr. Kannon per formed an autopsy on the body of the ! murdered man yesterday, with a view !to ascertaining the exact nature of the wound that caused his death. It was found that the skull had been completely crushed in in one place and a circular section about an inch in diameter forced 1 down into the brain. This wound was sufficient to cause instantaneous death. ' The other wound, the smaller one, ■ seemed to be made by a light blow from I the same instrument. From the shape and size of the large hole in'the skull it is generally believed that the original theory of a hammer having been the weapon is the right one. The inquest has been called for this afternoon and will take place at 2 o'clock, provided the necessary wit nesses can be notified and evidence se cured by that time. During the day yesterday large num bers of people visited the coroner's office to view the remains of the mur dered man, many women being among the visitors. There was a report circulated on the street several times yesterday to the effect that Mrs. Miller, wife of the de ceased, had succumbed to the shock oc casioned by her husband's violent death. This report was found to be without foundation, however, as the lady was alive and conscious and able to attend to some business at the time a Hekai.d re porter called in the afternoon to inquire after her condition. Attorneys Pepper and Lindenfeld, who have been the legal advisors of Mr. and Mrs. Miller for years, yesterday took possession of the saloon and fix tures in the name of tbe widow, v/ho by the terms of her husband's will is made sole legatee, and executrix without bonds.

Mr. Miles, partner of the deceased, states that the result of the murder is equal to ruination for him. Although he has no capital invested in the busi ness, he has put in considerable time and no little expense in removing here from Santa Fe, N. M., where he went after disposing of his share of the former proprietorship of Miles & Camfield. Mr. Miles is as much in the dark as anyone concerning the identity of Miller's mur derer, but thinks the crime was com mitted for the purpose of robbery. The popular opinion, however, seems to be that the murder was committed ac an act of personal vengeance on the part of the unknown assassin. Whatever the motive may have been, or whoever the man that did the killing, the present indications are such as to indicate the affair will never be cleared. Women as Process Servers. "Women are in great demand nowa days for serving legal papers," remarked a lawyer the other day. "Almost all the law firms employ a man solely to serve papers, but often the server runs up against some individual whom it is im possible for him to get at. Women are especially hard to serve. I had a case the other day in which I spent a great deal of money and was very much an noyed by the delay caused by my man's failure to serve a female defendant in a case where personal service was neces sary. "One of my clerks said that he thought that he could have the paper served. Sure enough, he came back the next day with an affidavit of service, and told me that a young woman friend served the paper. Since then, whenever I have a difficult case of that kind I call the young woman to my assistance. The most sos picious debtor will not, for a moment, suspect a woman with having clandes tine designs against him, and a well dressed female can easily gain admit tance where it would be impossible for a man to enter."—New York Telegram. A Question of Etiquette. It has repeatedly been asked as to why the empress, after the news of Sedan was made public, did not present herself to the guards and the people of Paris, and call upon them to rally around her and her son, and to maintain for the latter the imperial throne. The cause of this sin gular abstention has been made public. It was because no suitable riding habit could be found for her in which to show herself on horseback to the troops and the populace. There was only one to be found at the Tuileries in the hurry and confusion of that terrible crisis. It was one made for the hunting parties at Compeigne, and was in the Louis XV style, composed of green velvet embroidered with gold, and necessitating a cocked hat for comple tion of the costume. It was too theat rical. It would not do, and so the gal lant appeal to the public was given up, and with it the last hope for the preser vation of the empire.—Paris Cor. Phila delphia Telegraph. She Takes Her Husband's Place. Rev. Ada C. Bowles for the past six months has been acting pastor of the Universalist churches in Abington and South Weymouth, Mass., in place of her husband, who has been seriously til. On Easter Sunday Mrs. Bowles drove four miles to South Weymouth, preached an Easter sermon and administered the communion; then returned to Abington, preached again in the afternoon and again conducted the communion service, and in the evening assisted at an Easter concert of the Sunday school. Both churches were beautifully decorated with plants and flowers. The sermons were preached without notes, and re ceived high commendation.—Woman's Journal. The Latest Veil. The latest veil is a spider mesh pat tern, with a tiny spider himself in vel vet arranged as the beauty spot. Just remember, there is always a right and a wrong way to assume a veil The right way is to hay,e it well over the chin, drawn up slightly at the sides and fastened high up at the back, A badly arranged veil will often spoil the entire charm of a dainty bonnet, and while the wearer is wondering that her dearest friend does noradmire it and say so, she little realizes that its beauty has been spoiled by the arrangement of the bit of filmy stuff at once a protection and a coquetry.—New York Letter.
