The Los Angeles boys won at the Haight-etreet grounds in San Francisco yesterday. They proved themselves to be heavy hitters. This places Los An geles and San Jose in the lead on a tie. The attendance was the largest ever seen at this resort. Eioiitken months haß been fixed as the time which will be required to build the gap which will give us a coast line between Los Angeles and San Francisco. When this is completed one will go to bed in Los Angeles and wake up in the Golden Gate the next morning. Judging by the attendance at the sev eral places oi worship yesterday there is a very devout fiber running through this community. If we were writing of a ■ecular entertainment, we should be tempted to say that the attractions must be lessened or the accommoda tions should be increased. This was notably the case with the Roman Cath olic and Episcopal churches. Thou sands were unable to obtain even stand ing room. A writer in one of the magazines has established to his own satisfaction the fact that monkeys can talk:. We have jnever doubted it. There are more mon keys than those which are classed in the Simian group. The Irishman who Soliloquized before a monkey cage in a museum reached this conclusion long ago. "Ye can't talk, can't ye; faith, ye can talk as well as I can, but ye know if ye're caught spakin' they'll put ye to warruk." Thk last suggestion is for a kite-ehaped track on the Southern California, em bracing its road from Los Angeles to Redondo and Santa Monica, with an ex tension to the Soldiers' home. The Herald* idea that that company or the Southern Pacific ought to buy the Los Angeles and Pacific road is a good one. It is a valuable properly that maybe had for a eon?, and a movement ought to be made quickly, as the donors of the right of way are already moving to re cover the lands granted. That a good local business will grow up there in time admits of no doubt. In sidewalks and pavements Los An geles has made great advances during the past two or three years. There is one improvement, however, that is much to be desired, and the council should insist upon it. We have en tirely too much white cemented side walk in this city. For a place in which the sun shines every day in the year, thia ia not good policy. The reflected light is quite injurious to the eye-sight. It is juat as easy to make this cement of a dark or neutral hue, and there will be no complaint from that source. Thebb ia something very peculiar in the way the telegrams of the Associated Press are being worked. They are un questionably inspired by a downright hostility to David Bennett Hill. All aorta of fishy stuff ia regularly tele graphed to this coast concerning the New York senator. In one dispatch he is represented aa certain that he cannot be elected. In another he is to with draw in favor of Governor Flower. In still another he is to place Mr. Cleveland in nomination, and to defer his own presidential aspirations until 1890. All these flighty and unreliable roorbacks have but one purpose, and that is to dis courage the friends of Mr. Hill. Mean while, the really notable news that reaches us from the east is made signifi cant by the fact that instructions for Mr. Cleveland have ceased, ana a large nninstructed element is forming which will be able to name the Democratic nominee. It is perfectly safe to assume that if Mr. Cleveland is not nominated on the first ballot he will not be the Democratic nominee. Tne choice of the Democratic standard hearer will ulti mately rest with the south, which ia perfectly right considering the fact that the bulk of the electoral votes which will give us a Democratic president will come from that section. Thk estimates for pensions for the coming year called for $147,000,000, just sixty-seven million dollars more than the whole German army of about eight hundred thousand men, with the entire German pension list, coßts the treasury of the North German empire. The house of representatives, while aiming to rec ognize the services of the gallant boys in blue, has ventured to cut down these estimates about $13,000,000, and large is the volume of denunciation poured out opon the committee on appropriations in consequence. No one is averse to recognizing the services of the men who saved the union, but there is a settled conviction amongst myriads, and this is not confined to Democrats, that the pen sion bureau is rotten from turret to foundation stone. Mr. Harrison was obliged, early in his administration, to get rid of Corporal Tanner, After that gentleman had handed out Bums of $16, --000 to single individuals for back pen sions, it began to be apparent even to a Republican administration that the thing might be carried too far. Even with the reduction of $13,000,000, the remainder, $131,000,000, shows that Uncle Sam is a pretty liberal sort of personage. Parsimony seems to have no part in his composition, and he gives tho lie to the old caw that republics are un grateful. WHY IOWA IS A DOUBTFUL STATE. There has been during the present presidential campaign, as there WB9 during the last, a great deal of discus sion as to the feasibility of carrying a number of western states for the Demo cratic nominee for president. The re markable success of Horace F. Boies in carrying lowa twice in succession as the Democratic candidate for governor has led multitudes of Democrats to look upon that gentleman as a very available personage, and it may well be that his name will be favorably regarded at Chi cago. He is personally exceedingly popular, which lias been attested by hiß running largely ahead of his ticket, and being elected where all his associates were beaten. He is noted for a rugged honesty and for abilities of a respectable order. It is quite probable that eveu for president he might carry the Hawk eye State. Hon. John N. Irwin, governor oi Ari zona, contributes an exceedingly inter esting article to the April number of the Forum under the heading, "Is lowa a Doubtful State?" He proceeds to ans wer his question in the affirmative, and even admits that it may be doubtful even in a presidential year. He gives a variety of reasons for this opinion, and they all have some force. In the firßt place, he claims that the Republicans of lowa are losing largely from emigra tion. They have contributed to the Republican vote in adjoin ing states of the northwest while depleting their own. We might add as a supplement to Governor Irwin's statement that the lowa Republican has done much to increase the majority of his party in Los Angeles and other coun ties of Southern California. The gov ernor says that a number of counties that formerly gave a Republican major ity of thirty thousand, from this cause now give a Democratic majority of four thousand. Farming has proved unprofit able in lowa of late years, aud the emi gration has been from the farms, whose population is largely Republican. The people in the cities, which are staunchly Democratic, have not emigrated to any appreciable extent, Governor Irwin says that not 5 per cent of the German-American citizens in lowa now vote with the Republican party. He ascribes this defection to the peculiar policy of his party on pro hibition. For years the state employed agents in Europe, who distributed cir culars and pamphlets broadcast, dwell ing upon the attractions of lowa for set tlement, and amongst other induce ments the ability to make wine aud beer from the products of the soil Were particularized. At that time there was prohibition againßt the sale of whiskey, wine, beer and other distilled and fer mented liquors, but the making of these staples was not prohibited. When the state passed the law prohibiting the making as well as the sale of these beverages, an immense capital invested in the breweries and distilleries was simply annihilated, as no provision was made to reimburse their owners. Added to this was the notorious fact that prohibition did not prohibit, the consumption of whiskey, wine and beer continuing in defiance of the law. The state thus suffered all the inconveniences of intemperance without the advantage of the revenues which could ba derived from a system of high license. Governor Irwin claims that the overwhelming sentiment of the people of lowa is in lavor of local option, thuß permitting each commu nity to decide for itself w*hat it would have as respects the liquor traffic. The second generation of the Ger man, Scandinavian and other for eign residents are growing up Democrats, and this ia another source of strength to the Democratic and weak ness to the Republican party. The leaders of the latter organization have been afraid to stem this tide, because they fear that if they act up to their real convictions the Prohibitionists will put a ticket of their own in the field. The original object of their policy was to attract the temperance element in the Democratic party. This they have sig nally failed to do, while they have alien ated a large liberal element in their own party. The governor is of the opinion that this issue will have to be met, or the Republicans will suffer still heavier losses. A singular cause for defections from his party is given by Governor Irwin. He claims that a great many Republi cans think that the pension appropria tions are being carried to too great an extreme. They are afraid to take an open Btand on this issue, and having an im pression that a Democratic ascendancy would check this tendency they quietly cast a Democratic ballot. There haß thus far been nothing in the action of any Democratic house of representatives or any Democratic convention to justify this belief. Democrats have shown a disposition to be liberal in appropria tions for the soldier of the late war, though critical, as it is right they should be, when there was reason to be lieve that the treasury wbb being milked by unscrupulous persons under the guise of sympathy for the boys in blue. A last reason, which is given in the ar ticle under review, for the decadence of lowa Republicanism, is the railroad policy of that state. The various com panies doing business in lowa employ within a fraction of 28,000 men and dis burse over $16,000,000 yearly to their employees. They hold the Republicans responsible for the harsh and repressive legislation under which they Buffer, and their employees naturally reflect this sentiment in their votes. When, to all THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, APRIL 18, 1892. these powerful causes of disintegration, in added the popular belief that the Re publican party stands for corporation ag gressions, trusts and combines, it ia not eingular that a clear-headed Republican believea that lowa is a doubtful state. There is a movement on foot looking to the preservation of the old Mission ruinß. Hon. A. F. Coronel has been prominent in suggesting this judicious conservation of relics of the early his tory of California that will enlist the interest ot the tourist for centuries to come. The chamber of commerce and other public bodies are warmly second ing this project. Many of these old Missions are going rapidly to decay. Within the past twenty years the San Fernando Mission has been almost ob literated. There ia a picturesque rem nant of the Mission of San Juan Capis trano, while that at Sin Diego is a ver itable wreck. The San Gabriel, San Luis Rev and Santa Barbara Missions are in a splendid state of preservation, and measures ought to be taken to keep them so. Of the others we cannot speak from personal observation. The day will come when a romantic interest will attach to everything that related to the early days of missionary enterprise. The state ought to provide means for carry ing out the plan which has been out lined; and, in addition, it would be an admirable idea to appropriate money for a museum in which should be stored all kinds of relics bearing on the mis sions of the heroic and holy men who first carried the cross through desert and over sea to the land of gold. Tonight at the Los Angeles theater the always welcome Bostonian Opera company will commence a four-day en gagement, with that very successful new opera Robin Hood. Nearly all theatre-goers will recall the tremendous ovation which was given this splendid company at Manager Wyatt's theater when it last waa here, a reception which will doubtless be ex celled tonight, for no company of players or singers stand higher in the estima tion of the Los Angeles public than those which make up this organization. ' The repertoire embraces the very beßt productions of the company, Robin Hood, which will be given this evening and Wednesday afternoon and evening, Fantinitza, in which Jessie Bartlett Davis has a role which is deliciously full of humor and beauty, is billed for tomorrow evening, and the tuneful Bo hemian Girl on Thursday night. The company has all its former well liked members and some new ones ; the participants are Jessie Bartlett Davis, Caroline Hamilton, Camille d'Arville, Florence Finlayaon, Tom Karl, H. C. Barnabee, VV. H. McDonald and Eugene Cowles. There cau be no question but that the season will be a great, success, artistical ly and financially. UNIVERSITY EXTENSION.
