By an arrangement with the Southern Cali fornia Railroad company the Herald is now being delivered to ita patrons on the line ol what is known as the "Kite-shaped track" In tine to reach the most distant point of the route before breakfast. Tbe towns included in this service are Garvanza, Raymond, Pasadena, Xamanda Park, Sania Anita (Sierra Madre), Monrovia, Azusa, Glendora, San Dimas, Lords- Imrg, Pomona, via North Pomona, North On tario, fan Bernardino, Highland, Mentone, Easlberac, Redlands, Colton, East Riverside, Riverside and South Riverside. The Herald lias agents at theae places to whom orders can be given. The Hkkald publishes the full As sociated Frets dispatches with news from all parts of the world and all tbe local and state naws. We expect to have the Illustrated jLob Angeles Herald on sale on the Ist *>r 2nd proximo. It will be an un usually interesting number. The picto rial portion of the work is of a very high grade, and it will be by long odds "the beet and handsomest of all these publicatiana. Tbe coming number wi 11 make the twelfth of a series of illus trated presentments of the claims of "this section which have done more 'than all other agencies put together to people Loa Angelea county. , It is not as great a misfortune aa it looks on the surface thai Southern Cali fornia received such a snubbing in the meeting of the league of atate clubs. We have all along distrusted this club busi ness. Clubs have not had tbe happiest ■effect in increasing the Democratic vote. A. abort time ago two of the best known Democrats on Boyle Heights were shut out from voting at a primary election because they did not happen to belong "to a club. It iB very doubtful, indeed, whether the Loa Angelea or Southern California Democrat would submit to snch a discrimination. On the other hand, tbe clnb can be made an auxiliary to an effective organization of the De mocracy. In tbeir place these organ izations are admirable. Tbey are good M far as they give an impetus to cam paigns. They can never, however, re place the old-fashioned primary. That there is something efficacious in printers' ink ia shown by an experience theother day. Sometime ago the Her ald published an item stating that there was a fortune of $160,000 in tbe eaat awaiting an individual whose where abouts was unknown. The telegraph yesterday advised us that he had turned up in Oakland determined to claim his inheritance. The solicitor for the Illus trated Hbbald, while canvassing Po jnona a couple of weeks ago, inter viewed a prominent real estate firm there which had figured in the last inumberof tbat invaluable publication, and asked for a renewal. "By all jiieans," was the instant response of the Messrs. Overton & Firey, "the two line mention of onr firm in your last issue enabled ns to sell $10,000 worth of prop erty, and we pocketed a handsome com mission." The road to wealth lies in the art preservative. The French president ia in a very em barrassing position. He haa tried to get a new cabinet together through sev eral of his leading supporters, but with out success. He will doubtless be com pelled to dissolve the chamber of depu ties and let the people send up a new set of representatives. In a crisis of thia kind there is nothing left but an appeal to tbe country. Tbe difficulties the president haa experienced in thia critical conjuncture show plainly that France has made a mistake in copying the British method of risking the tenure ol a cabinet to the fluctuations of opin ion in the chamber. He should choose bis advisers from the party of the ma jority, and these should not be held responsible for the legislation of the chare be ra, but occupy tbe same position towards the legialative branch of the government that our cabinet does. Tbe British method ia not suited to a repub lic, and this Mr. Carnot haa doubtless found out within the past week. Ik conversation with an old fisher man yesterday, he said that the fish market here is in the hands of a combi nation which makes the consumers pay an exorbitant price for the fish they buy. While the consumer pays a round pi ice, the fisherman is pinched down to the merest pittance, and, in order to do this, the introduction of catches from Ban Diego and other distant points is encouraged co as to glut the market and act repreesively on the home fish ermen. By this process the "com bine" closes the market to good fresh fish and opens it to fish that are caught hundreds of miles away, and consequently comparatively stale. We have all tbe halibut, yellowtail and that class of fish tbat the market could age, and if there were no monopoly it could be sold to onr people at six cents a pound. Now the lowest figure for any table fish caught in onr own waters is THE LOS ANGELES HERALD SATURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 27, 1892 ten cents a pound and upwards. Our friend haa tried hard to get a chance to sell hia catches directly to the consum ers, but he cannot get a stall in either ot the markota for any money ; nor has he so far been able to rent a store eli gibly situated for that purpose. Why should the Loa Angeles consumer pay ten cents a pound for halibut caught in our immediate waters, whilst the fisher man who catches them haa to be eatis nedwith two or three centa a pound? HYDRAULIC ENGINEERING. Some time ago we received advance sheets on a work, then in the press, en titled "Irrigation Canals and Other Irri gation Works," and made some com ments upon it. But we then had no idea that the work when completed would prove so important and thorough a text-book on the science of hydraulic engineering aa it turns out to be. We yesterday received a copy of the com plete book, which ia divided into two volumes, and rind that it is a work of extraordinary value, and embracea all the exact knowledge we now have upon the vaat subject of which it treats. The author ia Mr. P. J. Flynn, the deputy city engineer of Loa Angeles, who will at once take hia place aa the compiler of a book which ia the most complete work on irrigation canals ever published in any country at any time, and which brings the whole subject matter down to date. We are assured by an engineer of eminence that in no one branch of en gineering science has there been such a paucity of literature as in the matter of irrigation knowledge, and therefore this work, which covers the whole field, and which gives illustrations of all the great irrigating canals in the world, cornea at a very opportune time. Mr. Flynn was for many years connected with the en gineering corps of India, and waa, before he came to the United States, the execu tive engineer of the public works de partment of Punjaub. Hence he haa brought to hia task an experience which has been of "rest value to Mni in nre paring for the profession a work that will be accepted hereafter as a standard text book in all matters relating to hy draulic engineering. Col. Charles L. Stevenson, president of the Utah Polytechnic society and secretary of the American Association of Irrigation Engineers, has made a care ful review of the .work, and we cannot better convey to our readera an idea oi its intrinsic merita than by a copious quotation from hia eatimate of the book. He saya: While Mr. Flynn has given a complete compendium of tbat which haa been heretofore known to the world, he haa alao given us ao much original matter of immediate value, that we insensibly wonder at the enormous amount of time and patience such a work must have entailed. Nor can we fail to appreciate the amount of erudition evinced, as well as the care shown in the manner of pre senting hia matter, in a sequence co natural, that it is like a continuous story. One of tbe first things that appeals to our judgment is ita general appearance. Printed in large, lull type, on tine book paper, with broad margins and carefully paragraphed, it becomes one of those books of reference that we all take a pleasure in consulting, because we can almost immediately find the article and information sought. The illustrations, which add so largely to the value of a scientific work, are fully on a par with the typography. Their great number, many ol them full page, showa how painstaking haa been this illustrative work, and thereby the great engineering feats of irrigation of the world are graphically presented to ua. Whiie we thus have depicted these works of engineering skill in their en tirety, we find as well, that which is so dear to the engineer's heart, detailed plans and sections of the moHt important parts of these works, and full descrip tions and calculations which led up to the proportions adopted by the different skilled constructors thereof. Starting off in medias res in article 1, Vol. I, he divides his canal work into two great classes—those of irrigation alone and those of irrigation and naviga tion combined. With this seem ingly abrupt beginning, we find, however, on reading ahead, that our author has nevertheless given that same careful study to the arrangement of his subjects, in sequence, as he has to the subjects themselves. Thus, by almost imperceptible stages, we follow him through "System of Irri gation," and "American Indian Irriga tion Canals Compared," to all sorts and kinds of constructions, dame, reservoirs, tunnels, water power pumping, et hoc genua omne, with seemingly every known engineering method of procedure, the relations of rainfall and forestry, ir rigation tables unequalled both as to hydraulic and statistical matter by any publication, I believe, in the world. Mr. Flynn's long residence in India and his connection with some of the greatest modern irrigation works has naturally ted him to give us copious ex amples of East India engineering, but equally so has he given us other foreign models and precedents, while the show ing of American works is far greater than ever given before in any one publi cation. One noticeable feature all through the book is tbat while compil ing from the best authors he has reli giously given us the names of the work and the author from whom he has ac quired hiß information, so that those wiehing to go more into detail on any one subject will know the sources from which to procure it. We feel justly proud that a work of so great value is the production ot a resident of Los Angeles. It will have a place in every library in America and Europe, and noengineer.will be without it. Whilst it will bring fame to its author, it will be a matterof great satis faction to the people of Southern Cali fornia, where stupendous advances have been made in irrigation, to know that one of their number has furnished a book of reference which will be consulted wherever hydraulic engineering is de veloping the industrial and productive possibilities of a country. There has been a great fanfare and hullabaloo in the telegrams following the splendid demonstration in New York in favor of Senator Hill. All these out givings have been directed towards breaking the force of the verdict of the Empire state. They have failed very signally. There is a growing sentiment that New York is essential to the De mocracy in the next campaign, and that David Bennett Hill is tiie one man who cannot bo defeated in that common wealth. Ergo, David Bennett Hill has the call for the Democratic nomination with great odds, which are reinforced by hia many substantial merits. One of the things that is slowly permeating tbe people of the United States ia that Senator Hill ia not only a statesman of consummate resources, but a speaker of unsurpassed force, pith and vivacity. His address to the New York conven tion which gave him ita unanimous voice for president was a model of ita kind. What Chauncey M. Depew is on post prandial occasions, Governor Hill is in all political eventa in which he figures aa an orator. A VERY LOOSE KIND OF HONESTY. A gentleman named Gibson haa been sent to San Francisco by the treasury department to investigate tbe com plaints about the proposed postoffice site in that city, and to ascertain from the citizens all facts that can be gath ered in connection therewith. The de partment is particularly desirous of knowing whether the price asked for tbe land iB a reasonable one. Here iB a specimen of the kind of viewa some people have about dealing with the government: Charleß G. Hooker, president of the First National Gold bank, said he thought the Mission site was the best one in the city. Prior to making an affidavit be declared that there was no 6uch another place, and that tbe gov ernment must expect to pay more for property than individuals. "What estimate would you place on this property as a private purchase?" asked Agent Gibson. "Six hundred thousand dollars," said Mr. Hooker promptly. "This is what it would be worth as a private invest ment; but for the government I think $1,040,000 is cheap enough." If Mr. Hooker's views represent cor rectly the kind of morality that prevails amongst men who deal with the govern ment, it is no wonder that there is a grow ing tendency abroad to rob the country whenever there is a chance to do so. Here is one of San Francisco's inoßt respectable and substantial citizens, who actually lays down the extraordinary doctrine that it is no viola tion of the canons of honesty to rob the government; for what else is it, but to rob the government to make it pay $1,040,000 for land which ia only worth $000,000 ? Mr. Hooker would feel greatly Bhocked and offended if he were told that it would not be considered so grave a crime to Bteal from a bank cor poration as from a private individual; yet it is exactly to thia kind of morality that tbe doctrine he lays down leads. Let us formulate the principle: To cheat the government ia right; but to cheat a private individual i 8 criminal; to cheat a corporation is commendable; but to cheat a private individual is reprehensible—to cheat a rich man ia a peccadillo, but to cheat a poor man is an unpardonable crime. Is it to be wondered at that the moral ideas of great numbers of what Mr. Hooker would call the "common people" are out of joint, when a man occupying hia exalted position can deliberately give expression to principles so at variance with a proper conception of what constitutes common honesty? When we overlook the fact that stealing ia stealing, whether it be from the govern ment, from a bank or from an individ ual, we strike at the very foundation of society, and bow feeds that will turn into dragon's teeth. We have met some of the returned delegates to the convention of the Dem ocratic clubs at San Francisco, and they Bay that the president of the conven tion, Mr. J. R. Glasscock, expressed deep regret at the mistake that oc curred in the selection of committees at the early stage of the session, and that he and the leading members from the northern part of the state were willing to do anything in their power to rectify the error. The southern delegates were requested to say just what they wanted and it should be granted. The spirit of the convention was conciliatory and entirely in the in terest of harmony, and the Lob Angeles delegates remained in full fel lowship with the delegates from the north to the end of the session. We are glad to learn this. We had feared that there was a set determination on the part of the northern delegates to use their power arbitrarily. But it seems that our correspondent came to hasty conclusions, and misapprehended the reai feelings of tbe northern Democrats towards the men who made ao gallant a fight in this section of tbe atate for the ticket at the last election. Fall to do Our Duty Everybody has at times failed to do tbeir duty toward themselves. Hundreds of lady readers suffer from sick headache/nervousness tUeplessness and female troubles. Let them follow the example of Mrs. H. Hertechter Stevens Point, Wis., who for five years suffered' greatly from Nervous Prostration and sleepless ness, tried physicians and different medicines without suDcess. But one bottle of Dr. Miles' Nervine caused sound sleep every night and she 1b feeling like a new person. Mrs. Eliza beth Wheeler, Laramie City, Wyoming who tried all other remedies, declared that alter three weeks' use of the Nervine for Headache Nervous Prostration, eto. she was entirely relieved.

The board of directors of the chamber of commerce met in regular session yesterday afternoon. There were prea ent Directors Edwards, Hughea, Wells, Jevne, Graff, Hellman, McGarvin, Lan kershim and Forman. Director Lanker shim occupied the chair. The tecretary presented a financial statement showing the balance in bank to be $581.45. Bills to the amount of $417.95 were read and ordered paid. A communication from Senator Fel ton was read with regard to the weather crop bulletins. The report of the committee appointed at a recent meeting of the board to visit the Soldiers' home and ascertain its needs was made, and, on motion of Director Hellman, was adopted. This report reads as follows: Los Angeles, Feb. 26, J892. To tbe Board of Oirectors of the Chamber of Commerce, Los Angeles, California: Gentlemen : Your committee appoint ed for the purpose of ascertaining the necessities of the Pacific branch of the national military home in this county, having in view a co-operation of efforts between the chamber and the home, respectfully reports that on February 17th the committee visited the home, and find: That with additional barracks, hos pital accommodations and allied build ings, a very large number of disabled volunteer soldiers would seek admission to this home, the number being esti mated above 3000. That in response to the call of the president of the board of managers of the national home, as to requirements of this branch for the fiscal year ending June 30,1893, the local management es timated that appropriations aggregating $536,534.47 would be required. That this sum was largely reduced by the president and board of managers of the national home in their estfmates presented to congress, presumably for the reason that they thought congress would deem the estimates too large. Since the date of our visit to the home, the secretary of the treasury has trans mitted to congress estimates for an ad ditional appropriation aggregating $ 121, 000, for the erection of additional bar racss, electric light plant, etc. That we endorse the necessity of these estimates and urge such action as shall aid in securing these appropriations. That particularly we call attention to the necessity for a permanent kitchen building, for which $16,000 is asked, and for an electric light plant, for which the sum of $20,000 is required. Without tbe tatter, and while they use kerosene oil throughout the buildings, the institu tion is constantly menaced with ihe danger of a general conflagration accom panied by.losß of life. Respectfully submitted, On .tune* Forman, O. M. Wells, W.E. H.UGHBB, A. H. Denker, E. F. C. Klokke. The following resolutions, offered by Director Forman, were adopted: Whereas, A committee appointed by the chamber of commerce of Los Angeles for the purpose of visiting and ascertain ing the needs of the Pacific branch of the national military home, Los Angeles county, California, did visit the said home and made to the chamber of com merce a report calling especial attention to the necessity for additional barracks, other buildings, etc.; and Whereas, With said additional barrack accommqdations a very large number of soldiers would seek entrance to this home, because thereby they may escape climatic rigors which their enfeebled condition renders them unable to long endure, which change will be most de sirable both from an economical and humanitarian point of view ; and Whereas, The secretary o( the treas ury has recently submitted to congress additional estimates for the year ending June 30,1893, for erecting such addi tional buildings and other improve ments, viz.: For two barracks, each $25,000, $50, --000; wing for hospital, $22,000; perma nent kitchen, $16,000; treasurer's and superintendent's house, $6000; garden er's house, $600; guard house, $500; barn and corral, $2000; two gates and gate houses, (entrance to grounds), $1000; fences, $700; roads and walks, $2000; electric light plant, $2000. An aggregation of $121,000. Resolved, That the Los Angeles chamber of commerce heartily endorses the desirability and necessity oi tbe foregoing estimates and urges congress to appropriate the full amounts recom mended, believing tbat it will conduce not only the welfare of the disabled volunteer soldiers now on the Pacific coast, but also of others throughout the union, who may be able thereby to avail themselves of the mild climatic conditions of Southern California. Resolved, That our senators and representatives in Congress be, and they are hereby requested touse|their utmost endeavors to secure tbe passage of a bill making the desired appropria tions. The secretary waa instructed to send copies of theae resolutions to Colonel Treichel, governor of the home, to Gen eral Franklin and to each member of congress from California and to Gover nor Mark ban i. Director Forman suggested that per sonal letters from parties who happened to be acquainted with representatives in congress either from California or other states would accomplish a good deal toward getting action from con gress. •On motion of Director Wells it was decided to asic Richard Gird to address the chamber at its next regular monthly meeting on the cultivation of the sugar beet.
