MONDAY, JUNK 15, 1891.
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 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
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 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
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

Los Angeles theater, will have a benefit,

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.

The Adventure of A. Low Yesterday
at Redondo.
A. 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.
The Features of the Services
Children's Day Observed by
Many Churches.
Dr. Russell to Leave Tonight on His
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

Samuel Flint is considered the postal

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
