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. MATERIAL FOR AGITATION—A CRITICAL ERA. The last decades of centuries, at least for four hundred years past, have been marked by great and sensational events. The close of the fifteenth century was accentuated by the discovery of America and the fall of Constantinople. That of the sixteenth century was signalized by the discovery of printing and the first ominous developments of the religious movement inaugurated by Martin Luther. That of the seventeenth cen tury was made memorable by the expul sion of the Stuarts from England for all time, and the establishment of con stitutional government in the right little, tight little isle. The close of the eighteenth century was crowded with interesting events in the line of human develop ment and the manumission of man from great burdens, not the least of which was the American revolution. This was quickly followed by the French revolution. Singularly enough this last, which expatriated the Bourbon dynasty from France, followed exactly one hundred years after the expulsion of the Stuarts from England. All these .events were pregnant with great and beneficial consequences to mankind. What is going to point the moral and adorn the tale of progress in the last decade of the nineteenth cen tury? There is something in the baccarat scandal in which the heir ap parent of the English throne has been mixed up which has an ugly resem blance to the Diamond Necklace episode of the little Trianon. It is true that the Wilsons and Lycet Greens are poor sub stitutes for the Cardinal de Rohans of the polished French court, and at no stage of the ,'disgusting affair is there anything which even remotely suggests the charming Marie Antoinette, but there is a general resemblance which is BUggestive of bad things for monarchy in the Gordon Cumming eclaircissement. Then there is Alexander the Third—who has been aptly named the "Mod- em Pharoah" — with his great and Little Russia. This gentleman and his dominions abound in sensational material for history in the closing de cade of the current century. What is to prevent an upheaval in Russia as great as, or greater than, the French revolu tion of 1788-91 ? That great empire has been growing her Rousseaus, Voltaires and Diderots during the past hundred years, and they have been leavening the somewhat obtuse Russians for quite awhile. A century of sullen brooding, with the remarkable developments of the explosive power of dynamite and the fulminates of mercury, silver and gold, ought to result in something really out of the common in the line of horrors, the energy of whose explosion will clear the atmosphere for the fuller breathing of the human lungs. Even the young and impetuous German emperor may find out that the mighty Teutonic race does not enjoy his phrase, "I alone am master here, and I will suffer no man to oppose me." On the whole, the time is at hand for an other grand movement of the human race in the line of freedom and universal well-being. It is to be deplored that such climacterics are never attained without copious bloodshed and much travail. Tin: mission of Warner Miller, presi dent of the Nicaragua canal, to San Francisco is to secure the moral en couragement and substantial aid of the capitalists and merchants of that city to the great enterprise. He says with great force that when he goes to eastern cities and to foreign countries to ask for sub scriptions and to place the bonds of the company, the first question he will be asked is what has San Francisco, the city that is to be the most benefited by the work, done? Have her merchants and millionaires subscribed liberally? And on the answer to these questions will depend the way in which the canal project will be received by capitalists elsewhere. The Examiner does not ap pear to have a very exalted idea of the open-handed generosity and business foresight of the men thus appealed to. It admits that anything they can do in the way of passing resolutions to steer foreign or eastern capitalists against the company's stock books will be cheerfully and enthusiastically con- tributed. But when it comes to putting money —real money—in the enterprise, the m. and ms. are not in it. And then the Examiner adds: "It ought not to be necessary for Mr. Miller to go outside of this city to raise the money he needs. There is wealth enough right in San Francisco to eon struct the entire Nicaragua canal, ab sorbing the entire glory and profit of the work, without asking a cent of the outside world. What an opportunity for a Ralston! But there ia no Ralston here now. San Francisco is too busy I peddling peanuts to be able to render substantial help to an enterprise that promises to double her prosperity." It would not sound well for a Los Angeles newspaper to say this of San Francisco merchants and capitalists ; yet we have long known it to be the truth. Some day this close attention to peanuts and dißCOurageme.it of large industries and great enterprises will be seen in a city that might have grown into one of the foremost marts of the world presenting to the visitor a pitiable example of ar rested development. THE STATE AND THE YOSEMITE. The state of California made a new and commendable departure when Bhe started out to create a great park at Yosemite. This good beginning, how ever, leaves much yet to be desired in its execution. The building of the Stoneman house out of the state's moneys should be simply the initial step in the development of one of the leading attractions of the world. If the proper facilities are provided for the tourist public, the stream of travel which would seek the valley would not be surpassed by that of any of the famous wonders of the earth. It would not only be a good thing from an esthetic point of view to develop the great charms of this unique region, but it would pay as well. The traveling class nowadays exacts comfort, and is willing to put its hands in its pockets and return shekels for proper accommo dations. The Stoneman house by no means realizes the expectations of the tourist who seeks the valley. It is badly built, insufficient in extent and most utterly unsatisfying in its ac commodations and cuisine. If the state were to issue bonds for the improve ment of the Yosemite, including a nar row gauge railway from Berenda to Wa wonah —the practicability of which has been demonstrated by several surveys— leaving thus only twenty-seven miles of staging in order to reach the heart of the Yosemite, were to remodel the Stoneman house and erect eleva tors at the foot of the leading falls, Gla cier point and other places of special interest, the outlay would be returned many fold, and the overplus would provide a sinking fund and the wherewithal for constant improvement. The immense unused water power of the falls and streams would provide abundant force for elec trical embellishments that would be magical in their beauty and exhilarating effect. It would be a fairy scene that would draw from the uttermost corners oftheeaith. With the face of El Cap itan, the various falls, the glacier and other enchanting views lighted up by thousands of sparkling jets, the limits of fancy and imagination would be almost transcended. The policy of a half hearted and baiting treatment of the matter cannot be commended. Now that the wisdom of providing some sort of accommodations has been conceded by the state, the improvements should be undertaken on a thorough scale. More than the attractions of Monte Carlo and of the Alps would thus be as sured, with all objectionable elements left out. The Yosemite is one of the wonders of the globe, and the state which is happy enough to possess such a treasure should bring it to the atten tion of the world in proper shape. A charge of larceny in the San Fran cisco police court promises to be inter esting on the subject of whisky-doctor ing by the wholesalers of that city. It will be remembered that a few months ago a number of these wholesalers were arrested by internal revenue officers for violating the United States laws. A great number of barrels of whisky they had sold to retailers had been seized be cause the stamps had been tampered with, and considerable stock was found in the cellars of the merchants that was amenable to confiscation. The whole salers paid up their fines, amounting to some $18,000, rather than have their methods exposed in court. It was said at the time that the merchants made two barrels of whisky out of every bar rel they took out of bond. Of course the liquor was well watered; but the loss of strength was made up by adding fusel oil and other stuffs well known to rectifiers to bring it up to "proof." In the larceny case in San Francisco an ex pressman is charged with stealing a small barrel of whisky from the South ern Pacific depot. It had been left there for shipment to the in terior by a First-street liquor mer chant, and the defense makes the point that the value of the whisky as testified to is not correctly sworn to. This enables the defense to open up a line of inquiry which is not palatable to the prosecution, and in answer to the question whether the dealer had watered the whisky, he answered that he had to the extent of about 11 per cent. If this was all the adulteration practiced, per haps the merchant would be entitled to credit for reasonably reducing the origi nal strength of the liquor; but the case is not finished, and there is a promise in it that the public will be let into the adulterating secrets of the San Francisco whisky merchants, all of whom are like wise licensed rectifiers. If not, we will know that they prefer to let the larceny charge miscarry rather than push it at the oost of giving their methods away. It would not be pleasant for consumers to know positively that when they call for their bourbon, they get only a per centage of Kentucky juice to a large de coction of fusel oil, burnt rock sugaT and Spring Valley water. Michakl De Young, in the Chronicle, commenting on an editorial which ap peared in i.ie Hekald a short time ago under the heading A Deathblow to a Great Party, says that it is not easy to kill a great party. The facts of Amer ican history do not agree with this as THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, JUNE t5, 1891. gumption. It has in the past been Ten easy indeed to kill the opponents of the Democratic party. Every organization that has ever locked shields with the , party of Jefferson has had a Slab in the | political morgue properly labeled. Thus, I the old Federal, Whig, Free Soil, Pro ! hibition, Know-nothing and other pre tentious parties, have shone for a mo ment and gone glimmering down to the great beyond. They have been gathered as an alms of oblivion into the wallet of time. They have been consigned to the limbo of things lost upon earth. Why should the Republican party be an ex ception to this rule, Michael? That at one time puissant organization is the po litical white scale, and the Farmers' Al liance is its redolia <'<tr<li}ialif. Public attention lias been drawn to the fact that Americana refuse to enlist for service in the navy, and that our ships are manned nearly exclusively by foreigners, who are mostly Scandinavians. A man in Sail Francisco, who had served three years in the navy, accounts for the prejudice that exists amongst American sailors to this service. He says that in the first place the men are treated as brutes on our war ships, and that no matter how capable a sailor may be, nor how well fitted for promotion, he can never rise above the grade of a common tar. He says that the officers are a distinct class aud look down upon the men as inferior beings, and treat them accord ingly. The three years he served In the navy he looks upon as a blank in his life, and says that whatever inducement there might have been to serve in our war ships when they were manned by Americans, it is so different now, with crews of foreigners, many of whom are very low class and few of whom speak English, that no self-respecting Amer ican is willing to enter the navy. Ihe truth of these objections, which were publicly made some time ago, has not i been questioned from any source, and we believe the statements are not over drawn. It is therefore no wonder that the navy department is greatly exercised about how the new ships are to be manned. Thirty years ago we had a merchant ma rine. But that has been swept away by the policy of commercial isolation adopt ed by the party that has been in power for twenty-five years of that time. The merchant ships whose sails at one time whitened every ocean have long since disappeared, and that splendid nursery of seamen that furnished us with the gal lant tars that carried our Hag successful ly through two conflicts, mainly on sea, with the greatest naval power on earth, no longer exists. We can doubtless find foreign sailors enough to man our ships ; but the battles they may win will no longer come home to us with that pride which our people felt when our navy was gaining laurels by lowering the flag which boasted that it had "braved the battle and the breeze" for a thousand years. If we wish to see our navy once more manned by American sailors we must adopt a policy that will build up our merchant marine commerce, and make' American war ships inviting to American seamen by recognizing the manhood of our sailors and giving them opportunities for promotion. The report made to the chamber of commerce on the importance to this city of securing a first-class hotel with all the tropical surroundings of lawns, flowers and foliage that would make it a delight and an attraction to eastern visitors, is a paper worthy of our most earnest consideration. That we require such a hotel, everybody knows and feels. It would be of immense benefit to all the interests of our city, and would help to divert some of the eastern pleasure tourists from making Europe and Florida their summer and winter resorts. Whilst a great modern hotel might not pay at once, it would pay from the start in that larger sense that it would be an impor tant adjunct to the attractions of our magnificent situation and climate. Manager Harry Wyatt's Benefit This Evening. Tonight Manager Harry Wyatt, of the Los Angeles theater, will have a benefit, tiie occasion being the first performance of A Royai Pass, with Mr. George Staley as the star. Play and actors are highly spoken of by the press in places where both have been seen. The theater-going public need no re minder of Manager Wyatt's efforts to furnish them enjoyment, and will doubt less do the graceful act of filling the theater from orchestra to ceiling. . Those who iancy the old time simon pure minstrels which are devoid of the modern plush, silk and tinsel mounting, will have an opportunity to gratify their taste at the Novelty theater. The or ganization now there—Hawkins' min strels —only claim the homely old fash ioned features, which usually please the people more than the modern minstrel organizations. Mr. Hawthorne states that there was a slight mistake in the notice published in yesterday'd Hkbald, that Mrs. Owens was advertised to sing at the Hawthorne benefit, without her authority. She withdrew her name from the pro gramme too late to prevent its publica tion once. The programme as it will be rendered on Tuesday evening is as fol lows : Basso—"The Wagon" Malloy Albert Hawthorne. Piano —(a) "Menuet a l'antlque" Paderewski (bi"Ciadle Song" KJerulf (c) "Air de Ballet". Maskowski Mr. Preston Ware Orem. Cello—"Elegie" Ernst Herr Franz Meyer.

Low, of the Capitol mills, had a narrow escape from drowning yesterday at Redondo beach. He went beyond his depth before he was aware of it, and not being a swimmer, he cried for assistance. He was heard and a rope was brought into requisition, with the result that Mr. Low was got safely out of the water. He fainted a couple of times after being taken out. THEATRICALS. THE CHURCHES. The Features of the Services Yesterday. Children's Day Observed by Many Churches. Dr. Russell to Leave Tonight on His Vacation. Dr. Chichester's Senium Yesterday Morning—Kast Side Churches—Spe cial Services Generally Held. Rev. Dr. Chichester's Bermon at lmrnanuel church, yesterday morning, was a happy blending of truths, appro priate both to children and their par ents. He took for the basis of his re marks Job's lament concerning his lost children —"When my children were about me" —and the doctor informed the Sunday school that he intended to use them as a sort of object lesson to the grown people present. "Job's experience," said he, "is not ours this morning; for, instead of using Job's sentence as a sad, despairing wail, we can put it into the present tense and speak gratefully and gladly as parents, teachers and friends of this blessed Sab bath service—when our children are about us." The doctor's first point was, that so long as our children are children we should keep them about us. He told of the boy who did not want to go to heaven if his father was going to be there, because that father was always saying :"Go along, Johnnie, out of my way, and* don't bother me." He also told of the phi lanthropist, Wilberforce, who in at tempting to take his baby from the nurse at one time, noticed that the baby shrank from him, and the nurse said, "Oh, sir, the child is afraid of strangers;" and the doctor argued that we should keep our children so closely about us that they would never be Strangers to us, either in the home or the church. The next point was that when our children are about us we should seek to make things attractive for them. It is not much wonder that some parents find it difficult to keep their children about them when they themselves are sour and disagreeable. Then the doctor argued that we should try to estimate our children at their true value. A friend said to him the other day, when ah infant's funeral was passing: "Oh, it is only a child." We should never speak slightingly of "only a child," for even the tiniest babe has an unspeak able value. But besides estimating our children at their true worth, we should endeavor to understand their individual charac ters. There are many misunderstood children. Every new babe is a mys tery, and has to be dealt with differ ently from every other. The doctor finally spoke of setting onr children a good example, as well as teaching them by precept. . The address was one of unusual force, packed lull of fresh thought and apt illustration, and it held the unflagging interest of everyone to the close. A pleasant feature of the occasion was the baptism of seven little children. The members and children of the First Presbyterian church turned out en masse yesterday to celebrate children's day in an appropriate manner. A special choral service occupied the time in the morning, and the children did the ex cellent music full justice. Rev. Dr. J. L. Russell delivered a short address to Ihe children, which will be his farewell to his congregation, as he goes north on tonight's train from the Arcade depot, for a six months' vacation. In the evening there was a specially prepared programme, which was rendered to a packed house. The programme was as follows: Organ voluntary. Singing. The Lord's prayer. Selections by the choir.

He is regarded as a high author ity at Washington on matters appertain ing to mail service, while the genial Samuel Flint is considered the postal Napoleon of the west, whose knowledge is unquestionable. It is true that the Pacific slope has been neglected, and itia about time that the department gave this state some recognition. There ia but one full railway postoffice in this state, while in otherstates the number is unlimited. For instance, the line called La Junta and Albuquerque railway post office, which takes in 345 miles through New Mexico, there are only twenty-eight offices for which full service is per formed, while between this city and San Francisco there is no full service, and frequently clerks are unable to work out tho mail on time. The numerous towns which are lo cated in the Tracy and Newman and the Fresno and Portersville divisions re ceive their mail now in direct pouches from train No. 17. The people will soon demand what is called a full railway poßtofnce service, and the improvement ought to be made atfonce. Written for the Hkrald. REDONDO ICE PLANT.
