THE ILLUSTRATED HERALD.
For some days past canvassers have
been oat soliciting advertisements for
tbe Illustrated Herald Annual. This
will be the twelfth issue of this invalua
ble publication, which has done so much
to develop Los Angeles and Southern
California. Oar agents have met a most
gratifying success, and they will remain
ia the field until it is time to put the
work to press.
As Mb. Blame sends greeting to
MiniB f er Pereira and official notice that
tbe United States is satisfied with the
apologies made by his government, the
Chilean embroglio quietly passes into
Wi learn that there is an unused
surplus in the Press League entertain
ment fund of $800, and that some of the
contributors propose that it should bejre
tnrned pro rata to tbe persona from
whom it was collected. Those who fa-
Yor this disposition of the surplus,
reason that to do so would make it
easier to make collections for similar
purposes on future occasions. There ia
something in that; but if the contribu
tors are not unanimous, we would sug
gest that it be fairly distributed
amongst our moat deserving charities.
Fbakk E. Hill, whose confession waf
pnblis bed in .yesterday's Herald, would
have appeared to better advantage if he
had had the manhood to omit euch por
tions of his public statement as unneces
sarily reflect upon tbe poverty of the
woman he had already married. Sup
pose be did buy the shoes she wore
at her wedding, did that fact lessen in
amy degree the enormity he was about to
commit by marrying a respectable girl
in spite of his having a wife already ?
When a man tries to justify his at
tempted bigamy by making it appear
that the woman he had seduced and mar
ried under compulsion was the recipient
•f his pecuniary bounty, he descends to
a depth of meanness which turns sym
pathy into contempt. That his actual
wife is poor and working as a chamber
maid is not certainly to her discredit,
however much it may accentuate bis
The chapter published elsewhere
today on the subject of state division
answers some of the northern papers in
their claim that there is no settled prin
ciple in the constitution which permits
the creation of a state out of a fraction
of the territory of an established com
monwealth. We all know that prac
tically several of the southern states
were created out of territory belonging
to Virginia and North Carolina, and
that several western states were created
oat of territory also belonging to Virginia;
but the decision of the supreme court in
the accession of Berkeley and Jefferson
counties from Virginia to Western Vir
ginia, goes farther, and shows that those
two counties were added to the new
state by the vote of their people after
Western Virginia had been erected into
a state. It will not do to claim that
this was a war measure, for the facts oc
curred and the decision was rendered
after the war bad been settled.
Thb first full, clear and reliable
presentation of tbe facts regarding tin
production in the Cajalco or Temescal
tin mines is embodied in an article by
Judge Enoch Knight of this city, which
appears in the Overland Monthly for
February. It is embellished with illus
trations taken from photographs by
Schumacher, which give a very realistic
idea of tbe topography of the country
and the process of working the ores.
Mr. Knight has given an exhaustive
history of tin exploitation in the
United States and complete data as to
the progress of the industry in Southern
California. No one who desires to be
advised of the status of the Cajalco tin
mines should fail to buy this number of
the Overland, which is unusually re
plete with interesting matter on many
other topics. We shall avail ourselves
*t some length of Judge Knight's re
searches in an early number of the
Hxkaud, and shall take the liberty of
borrowing some of the statistics he has
so carefully collated.
Tub hills are already changing color,
and the whole face of the country is as
suming a fresh and emerald hue. The
effect of the gentle rains we have had
daring the week, and the accompanying
warmth of atmosphere, is to be seen in
the rapid germination going on in every
direction. The farmers are taking ad
vantage of the softened ground on the
mesa lands to plow and prepare tbe
earth for seeding. The lands already
plowed and seeded are covered with a
fine growth of grain, that is shooting
up, under the encouraging conditions,
with almost the celerity of Jonah's
gourd. The orange orchards present a
beautiful eight after tbe cleansing and
invigorating processes they have gone
through from the beneficent rains.
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 31, 1892
There is promise everywhere of abun
dant crops, and if there were such a
thing as true happiness, man ought to
be happy here and now, for he has been
singularly bleet in a season that gives
every token of being one of the best we
PUT UP SHIPBUILDING AND ORDNANCE
PLANTS AND BUY SHIPS.
The Herald has received a letter from
a gentleman who entirely misconceives
the spirit ot an editorial which appeared
in this paper the other day. Oar argu
ment was that, in view of the decadence
of the American meichant and naval
marine, and the imminent danger of
war springing up without a moment's
warning, this country ought to buy war
veseels wherever we can find them, and
to so modify our navigation laws that
enterprising Americans should be per
mitted to give an American register to
merchant vessels which they might buy
abroad. This by no means implies that
we should be laggards in building the
new American navy, whose conception
and plan are due to the sagacious initia
tive of Mr. Cleveland's administration,
and whose successful evolution was so
materially assisted and supervised by
Mr. Whitney, Mr. Cleveland's secretary
of the navy, and all without material
diminution of tbe big surplus which the
fiftieth congress left to the fifty-first,
and which Mr. Cleveland's administra
tion left to that of Mr. Harrison.
The circumstances of today are quite
peculiar. Nearly thirty years of Re
publican misrule have almost destroyed
the American merchant marine, and
had allowed our navy to fall to pieces.
An uncommon succession of good for
tune has enabled us to escape any seri
ous national disaster from this state of
things. That our immunity from grave
national misfortunes has been purely
fortuitous has been shown within a
very brief period, during which we
have been threatened with war from
Italy and from Chile. The part of
wisdom would thus appear to us to be
that we should, while hastening the
building of our own ironclads, and insur
ing the completion of shipbuilding and
ordnance-casting plants, buy aa many
likely ships of war and merchant ves
sels aa might be conveniently secured.
There ia nothing antagonistic in the two
ideas, and there is a doubled national
safety in a policy which should keep
our own shipyards going while we
availed ourselves of those of the rest of
The peculiar tariff policy of the Re
publican party has for years made it
impossible to build Bhips in the United
States on terms as favorable as those
which exist in the shipyards of England
and France. This is the solemn truth,
and every American must realize the
fact with a grimace of disgust.
Rear-Admiral Porter, in an article
which appeared in the North American
Review, about a year ago, said that it
would take five years to provide this
country with plants capable of supplying
ua with the modern ordnance we need
for our navy and with an efficient sys
tem of coast defence. Our correspondent
will perceive that four years of this pe
riod has still to elapse. Meanwhile,
what guarantee have we that we shall
not be plunged into war with some pow
erful nation this year, next year or the
Would it not be wise, realizing the
inadequacy of our present means, offens
ive and defensive, to increase them by
all the resources which our plethoric
pecuniary ability as a nation could com
mand? The fact that we should buy
Borne big guns from Krupp, and some
ships in Glasgow or Tonlon, need in no
whit cause us to intermit th» red-hot
work in our own shipyarde and foundries.
Why should it? The appearance of
trim steel and iron vessels in our mer
chant marine would only stimulate the
genius and enterprise of cur shipbuild
ers on both the Atlantic and Pacific
coasts. There is nothing gratifying to
American pride, and, there is no increase
in our ocean tonnage, in forcing ships of
American ownership to fly a foreign flag.
This country has been compelled to
submit to a depreciation galling to our
national punctilio through the inade
quacy of our navy. The mortifying gap
between our pretensions and our pos
sible performance ought to be closed at
once by any tneans. There .is no dan
ger of our forgetting the art of building
ship", but there is great danger that the
noble race of American sailors will die
out unless we provide them with vessels,
of home or foreign build, in which they
can harden into splendid Jack tars
who have made American naval history
It is thb subject of universal remark
that the street railway system of Los
Angeles is one of the most perfect in the
United States. Tho cable system, which
has succeeded the primitive horse and
mule cars, was extensive and complete.
This was succeeded by our superb elec
tric Bystem, which bids fair in a short
while to leave nothing to be desired. It
is unfortunate that .the financial affairs
of the cable company do not appear to
be in as satisfactory a state as might be
desired. Some time ago the receiver,
Hon. J. F. Crank was sued by the Bank
of California for $11,000, which he had
borrowed from that institution in order
to supply Borne pressing need of the
cable company. Yesterday Mr. Crank
put in his answer. In it he states that
a foreclosure suit is inevitable from the
holders of the first mortgage bonds of the
road, there will be a necessity for large
expenditures in providing the road with
new cables and in adapting it to
changed grades in certain portions of
tbe city, and he does not feel
able, under the circumstances, to re
spond to the Bank of California's de
mand. The first mortgage bonds of tbe
Lob Angeles Cable company are held in
San Francisco. The name of the re
organized cable company was changed
to "The Pacific Railway." This com
pany's bonds were sold in Chicago, and
they constitute a eecond mortgage on
the road, its franchises and appurte
nances. From present indications it
looks very much as if this valuable
property will pass into the hands of
the San Francisco capitalists unless the
Chicago men liquidate this California
indebtedness, and thus acquire its unen
As the Republican central committee
have let the Mil for the reward of $1000
for the production of the original "mv
paid" letter, the authenticity of which
was denied, go by default, what becomes
of the gubernatorial veracity? Mr.
Markham declared that the letter was
a forgery, and on his representation
the Republican central committee broke
the campaign force of the letter by
offering a rewara of $1000 to any one
who would produce a genuine letter
such as the Democratic central commit
tee accused Markham of writing to his
miner partner, in which he aaid he was
glad "the Irish had been discharged
and replaced by Chinamen." Of course
the letter was produced, and the reward
claimed. The fact that the Republican
committee, after trying a demurrer,
have let the suit go by default is equiv
alent to a coufession that they cannot
maintain the truth of Markham's
declaration. Can the governor of tho
state afford to leave the matter where it
is? It operates as a complete impeach
ment of his veracity—just as complete
as if the trial had been permitted to
proceed and proof of the genuineness of
the letter had been incontestibly made.
J. B. Lii-PiNcoTT, a member of the
United States geological bureau in Los
Angeles, favors us with a communica
tion in which he corroborates the truth
of the Herald's criticism of the mis
leading figures sent out from the signal
service office here about the rainfall.
The gauge is placed on the roof of a
high building and Mr. Lippincott quotes
the authority of eminent hydraulic en
gineers to show that true measurements
of rainfalls cannot be obtained from
gauges placed at high elevations. The
official measurements made here have
always been erroneous. They have al
ways been from 30 to 70 per cent lees
than those reported from private gauges,
which are usually kept immediately on
the ground, or but a few feet above it.
It is now many years since the press of
this city first called attention to the
harm done to Loa Angeles by the scant
measurements of the government gauge.
To a country which has a false reputa
tion abroad for drouth, it is important
that the amount of rainfall should be
stated correctly in the official reports.
MiBS Gale played the Lady of Lyons
at the matinee yesterday. Peshaps it
was due to the Bmall audience, perhaps
not, but tbe performance was the most
unsatisfactory of the engagement as re
gards the support. Mr. Clarke played
Claude admirably, but the others of the
cast were deplorably lacking.
Miss Gale's Pauline is ou a par with
all of her r&les, exquisite in its perfec
tion, captivating in its beauty and de
lightful in all its details.
Ingomar was tbe bill for the evening
performance. Miss Gale was suffering
from a cold, but played Purtheuia with
an indescribable charm.
There is no denying the fact that Miss
Gale deserves to rank among the very
first actresses of the day, and he is in
deed short-sighted who fails to see that
iv a short time she will be an admitted
star of the first magnitude.

not at all pleasing by the officials of the

General Freight Agent Hynes, of the
Southern California, yesterday said, in
reply to a Herald reporter's query, that
no decision had been reached by hie
company as to a remedy, but from the
conversation the reporter gathered the
idea that a special "cannon ball" train
would be put on to bring the time down
to the Southern Pacific standard.
This little coup of the Southern Pacific
baa not contributed in any way to the
lessening of the tense relatione between
the roads, and is the first retaliatory ac
tion of the Southern Pacific since the re
cent moves have been made by the
Southern California, which have had
the air of being aggressive to a degiee.
MARCUS POLLASKY AT SANTA MONIC4.
The Herald's Santa Monica corre
spondent sends the following:
Mr. Marcus Pollasky, who will un
doubtedly rejuvenate the Los Angeles
and Pacific road, spent Friday at Santa
Monica, accompanied by Mr. A. G.
Booth of San Francisco. During their
short stay the gentlemen studied public
opinion on the deal very thoroughly,
and Mr. Pollasky went away convinced
that the citizens of the city by the sea
will do everything they can to aid him
in his undertaking.
It would do the most obdurate pessim
ist good 'o talk with Mr. Pollasky for
a few moments, be being full of inform
ation in respect to future railroad de
velopments, and more than sanguine
over Santa Monica's future prospects.
As he put it: "In time Santa Monica
will excel any other port on the coast
in commercial importance outside of
San Francisco, and as the southern
country develops it will given the city
of the Golden Gate aj tussle for the first
place." • •
It seems to your correspondent that
Mr. Pollasky is working in the interest
of another transcontinental line. One
thing is sure: Santa Monica will have
three railroads bringing passengers and
trade to the town before the end of
June,! and two wharves with the ocean
commerce coming to our warehouses,
and being distributed from this point
all over Southern California and adja
SANTA FE VS. SOUTHERN PACIFIC.
Redlands, Cai., Jan. 30. —Still an
other phase of the Santa FeVSouthern
Pacific fight over the right-of-way from
Redlands to Grafton station, has been
developed. The Santa F6 recently
stopped the Southern Pacific on the
claim that the latter's road was on the
Santa F<i's right-of-way. The Southern
Pacific bought around the contested
spot, and yesterday went ahead with
building, having obtained from the
owners of the laud the right to proceed.
The Santa F6 people, not knowing thiß,
bought a lot Booth of the Southern Pa
cific company's line, and last night
when the Southern Pacific men stopped
work, ran » spur across the Southern
Pacific line on to this lot, again block
ing the way of the Southern Pacific, and
at the same time getting from the su
perior court an injunction which will
probably be dismissed when the true
state of affairs ia presented.
