The newly-elected county and city officials entered on their duties yester day, and the netf deal has commenced. The county gland jury must have found a Lumber of weighty affairs to study. It was a question at one time whether it would report before the last election day; now it seemß open to ques tion if it will complete ita labors before the next election day. Some of our fruit growers may be in terested in knowing that the peach had its origin iv Persia, while the apricot is Syrian. The peach was mentioned by writeia as early as 200 years B. C, while the latter waa not known until 230 years later. It now is asserted that Chairman Harrity of the national Democratic committee had considerable to do with harmonizing the senatorial contest in this state. Mr. Harrity is a Democrat from toe to crown,and Bhowed it plainly in this case as ou ail other occasions when he haa come to the front. There ehould be v rue at the poßt offioe requiring people to stand in line at the delivery windows, and each take hia proper turn in being waited upon. They Bwarm around the windows in groups, elbowing each other, stepping upon each other's feet, and making things generally disagreeable. In this or der the usual woman in a hurry will elbow her way through the ciowd, forgetful of all lules of propriety and courtesy, and after receiving her letter will open it to see who it is trom before having the window. An officer should be atationed in the lobby to enforce order in line, es pecially during the early morning hours and at noon. The breaking up of the old board of education mat night aud the formation of the new one waa Dot characterized by any very encouraging features. President Kierulff took occasion to charge that the minutes of Hie board had been doct.rtd and this n«t for the first time in the city superin- office. There was also a wrangle the increase of the salar ies of certain teachers, which action did not sejm clear to all the memberß. The new board appeared to Lave everything cut and dried, and the way a clerk was elected to supercede Mr. Baker was only equalled by the prompt ness with which, on Mrs. HugheE' mo tion, his salary wae kept at the start lingly, from one point of view, low sum of $15 a month. It ia probable that tbe public will have some interesting mat ter to read in the reports of the future meetings of the board. It is to be regretted that there was some irietion in the action of the Lob Angeles bar yesterday in considering the recommendation of one of oifr su- perior judges for appointment to tbe bench of the state supreme court. Judge Clark secured the larger part of the bal lots of the association on theiSrst ballot, and afterwards it was decided to call the vote unanimous. tjorxie at Judge Van Dyke's friends, however, declined to go into the meeting ond be bound by its ac'ion and stayed away, on the groind that a petition had already been sent to Governor Markham asking for Judge W.n Dyke's selection. It is Mid that other names of members of the bar will be iuruisheJ to the cov ernor in behalf of U>e litter candidate. It would seem that a lack of unanim ity on the yart of ihe gentlemen of the bar may result iv disappointment all around. With BUth able and desirable* c.ndidatei an egreement to have been reachei and carried out. The Examiner's sonx on the death of Mr. F.ul r senutoriil hopes is bated on the same silly burthen it has chanted during the entire campaign, the charge that Hon. Stephen M. White is a rail road candidate, una while Mr. Foote and bis friends, with political discern ment and party loyalty, have espoused Mr. White's cnuie, the Examiner, with baetlesß vindictivenejf, even now coui. eald ihe legislature to elect some other man than "our Steve.'.' This position is simply the culmina tion of an oppo3itijn which h.ts no better basis than personal spite. The paper bus utterly failed to advance any reason, any argument why Mr. White should not be selected as senator, and has indulged in flights of prejudiced fancy in creating charges against that gentleman which have had no other re sult than to evoke a smile at their entire want of substantiality. When Mr. Foote, with cordiality and LOS ABGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MO r 'NING, JANUARY 4, 1893, dignity, withdrew from the contest, the newspaper in question bad an opportu nity of not only regaining what ground it had lost in the estimation of fair- rinded observers, but it could, by a prompt acceptance of the situation, have won the regard of the whole Dem ocratic party in the state and of the great mass of the people who are anx ious to see Mr. White elected. It has chosen to adopt the contrary policy, however—a policy which, whatever else it may do, will not result in the slight est injury to Mr. White or his cause. THE GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE. The synopsis of Governor Markham's first biennial address to the legislature, which appears on another page, con tains some suggestions that will meet with general popular approval. The governor has on divers occasions dem onstrated that he Can rise above politics when the public weal requires it, and the Herald, although politically at va riance with his excellency, has at no time withheld from him his proper meed of praise. Again, it affords us pleasure to congratulate his excellency on the amount of common sense em bodied in his message. Whatever we have cf criticism to make on his address we will defer till a later time. For the present we will touch briefly on the I merits the document contains. First, it is commendable for its brev ity. The governor's idea f>f transmit ting hiß views in special messages to the legislature, as the occasion may arise, instead of trying to cover the entire held of possible legislation, is a good one. A little of the average executive's message goes a great way. It is more palatable in small than in large doses ; and, in accordance with the scriptural aphorism, "sufficient to the day is the evil thereof," we prefer to take the governor's message and other weighty state papers on the installment plan. Governor Markham in his message says the state is in a most prosperous condition, but calls attention to tbe fact that large quantities of food products, notably livestock, meats and canned goods, which could be produced here, are being imported. This is hardly a matter for legislation, but the fact re mains that California does import many articles which she ehould pro duce herself. Why is this thus? Tne Herald has often asked why, and is glad the governor has emphaeized the question by bringing it to the attention of the legislature; not that we expect that body to pasß any legislation in the shape of subsidies for the stimulation of home production, but because agitation of the question will help to open the eyeß of our farmers and manufacturers to the fact that they are not supplying the demands of the home mar ket, although they have unlimited opportunities at their command. South ern California alone can produce enough food products to supply the entire state and do a large export business besides, and the sooner our people get a move on themselves and make the most of the advantages nature has given them, the more prosperous we all shall be. The governor thinks there iB room for reform in tbe matter of state printing. It is true that $220,000 ia a large sum to pay for the printing of public reports in two years. There is no doubt that a great saving can be made to tbe state by the practice of economy in the Btate printing office. In recommending the repeal of the coyote scaip law, tbe governor has Btruck a blow at an infant industry that the late Republican legislature of many scandals was at great pains to build up, and for which curses have gone up from the hard-hearted taxpayets loud and long. It is to be hoped that thia infam ous piece of legislation will be erased from tbe statute books ere the state goeß bankrupt. In the matter ot the mnnuer of mak ing county and municipal assessments, the governor's recommendations are in liae with the policy the Herald has long advocated. There is no reason why one assessment roll should not serve both city and county govern ments. It iB either a sad commentary on tbe morals of California or a mark of the efficiency of her criminal courts that there are confined in the pris ons of the state from two to three times aa many persons as in any other Btate, in proportion to the population, and the governormay be pardoned for feeling glad for legiti mate excuses for frequent use of the par doning power. There are other things iv the govern or's meaßage that we shall comment upon anon. COULD BE UTILIZED HERE. An enterprising showman has brought to this city a troupe of Australian boom erang throwers, whom, he claims, have been in the habit, when in their wild ot&te, of living on a diet of roast mis sionaries, varied by an occasional fitea seed Chinaman. If these visitors have fiifliculty in assuaging their peculiar dietary tastce, a list of .people would be furnished them, whose removal by way Ol a spit or a fryi„g-pan, or, in fact, in nny way would he of some benefit to the city. Any newspaper man can mine a dozen bores, writers of poetry, people who want ten columns of free write-up iv return for having put a 25-cent ad vertisement in the paper; men who know how the editor ought to conduct his jour nal ; men who want office; men who have got into the police or divorce court and want the fact suppressed; men wbo "want to see the feller what wrote this 'ere item," not to speak of Democrats who want to get on a police commission in order to vote for a Republican chicf — all these and a few more unmentioned and unmentionable would make excel lent provender for these visitors with their anthropophagical appetites, and their disappearance would cause wide spread joy. Kalamazoo ie not in it according to a letter received in this city yesterday from Detroit. Kalamazoo is the eu pbonious name of tbe place which has Heretofore supplied the northwest part >f this country with early vegetables, rhat is early ac the tern is used in the northwest. But some enterprising ranchers of Orange county have lately been shipping strawberries, celery, raspberries, peas and like delica cies to Detroit and neighboring place?, where, with the mercury coquetting irith zero, they were highly appreciated, nnd the report comes back from a cor respondent of one of the shippers that Kalamazto is "not iv it." This iB not, perhaps, new, but empha sizes the fact bo often accentuated in the Herald that there is but one South ern California, but that it is big enough and prolific enough to supply the whole United States with all the luxuries needed. AFRoros of a Hrhald item yesterday morning on John D. Rockefeller's gift to the university of Chicago, and the expressed hope that some local phi lantbrophist would do the same for Los Angeles, George W. Vanderbilt has vat presented to the city of New York a splendid picture gallery. While we have, probably, no Vanderbilts amongst us, we have men who could give our city a building suitable for such purpose, and thus raise a memorial to himself, dispose.of his property as he Baw fit, and put less money in the pockets of some lawyers who might have the set tlement oi a contested will. The Lob Nietos and Rauchi'o Walnut Growers' association shipped during the pact season eighty-two cat loads, and re ceived therefor, in round numbers, $100,000. This is an excellent showing for a comparatively young industry and when the groves recently planted come into bearing tbe crop of English walnuts will aßtonish the world. It is proposed to build an asphalt bicycle road from Chicage to New York. What a boon this will be to the gentle men who neither toil nor spin and who have grown bo tired of walking on rail road ties. What helps one benefits all. AMUSEMENTS. Los Angeles Theater. — The Glee flub of the University of California gave a most pleasing concert last evening. The participants were: First tenor—C. E. Morse, '94; T. V. B&kewell, '95. Second tenor—L. P. Rixford, '93; Miles B. Fisher, '94; A. T. Smith, '96. Inetrumentol—Jabish Clement, '94, violin; C. Parcells, '95, violin; Miles B. Fisher, '94, viola; C. H. Morse, '94, 'cello.

Mr. D. S. Phillips arrived in the city yeaterday, representing Turner's Eng glieh Gaiety Girls Burlesque company, which will appear here on the 15th. Mr. Phillips will be remembered as a very efficient employe of Manager Harry Wyatt when he had charge of the oper* house. Mr. Phillips left many friends here when he went east some four years ago, who are glad to see him back. Grand Opera House.—The old Home stead was repeated last night to a large audience. There will be a matinee per formance this afternoon. Peck's Bad Boy will appear at the Grand Opera house next Tuesday and Wednesday eveninge. It is really an in geniously manufactured bit of drollery, and no one can §it it through without a keen enjoyment of ita humor. The Bad Boy, hia father, Major Isaac Peck, MiBB Minnie, hia sweetheart, and the grocery man, co-Bufferers with the major, are actual personalities to very many thoue anda of readers of the chronicles and spectators of the play. Master Frank Egan aB the boy, T. F. Callihan as Ihe policeman, Clayte E. White as Major Laao Peck, Fred Wenzel as Schultz, the groceryman, and an abundance of musical and epecialty features by all tbe members of the company relieve any chance their might be of monotony. Chubch «f tub Unity—The advent of a college profeseor who combines the dualities of a delightful speaker with tbe knowledge of an encyclopiedia, who can make science fascinating and geo metric diagrams objects of intense inter eat, has aroused tne cultured people of the community to a condition of active sympathy. The attendance at the first Le Conte lecture and the inquiry for tickets since, have demonstrated that this new undertaking of the Unity club is already crowned with success. Le Conte's lecture tonight is a con tinuation of his main topic of Ice as a Geological Agent, and will be devoted to Morainee; their kinds and origin; Glaciera aa a geological agent in erosion. Characteristic sieus of glacial agency. SOCIETY. On Monday evening a very pleasant party wr.B given the many friends of Miss Cora Snodgrasa, at her beautiful home on East Washington street. Games were enjoyed for several hours, when refreshments were served.

CLOSED WITH A ROW. THB OLD BOAKD OF BDTJ CATION GIVES WAY TO THB NEW. Dr. Kierulff Charges that the City Su perintendent Had Doctored the Miuutes — Formation of the New Board. The board of education met last even ing with President Kierulff in the chair and a full board in attendance. When it came down to the reading of the minutes of tne past meeting, there was a small cyclone in a samovar over tne increase of the salaries of teachers as set forth in the minutes. Mrs. Hughes contended that the increase of salaries from $100 to $110 and from $110 to $120, did not apply to all teachers,, while Mr. Marsh contended that it did. The chair ruled that any disciimina tion between teachers of any one grade was unjust and could not be allowed. The next thing was a request that the minutes be made uniform on this proposition, and Dr. Kierulff said that the minutes had been "doctoied" in the city superintendent's office after the last meeting. It was not the first time that such a thing had occurred. Finally the whole thing was settled by a reso lution from Dr. rtoal to the effect that all teachers in school, except the principal and teacher of languages, have their salaries increased $10 a month each, to take effect from and after Jauuary 1, 1893. This carried, and the minutes were ordered amended to conform to it. Mrs. Hughes then moved the salaries oi Messrs. Hannah and Raymer be in created from $110 to $120. The presi dent said the chair could not entertain any business motions, as its legal exist ence had terminated. It could only en tertain measures that came up under the head of unfinished business. Mrs. Hughes said tbe chair wae inclined to be fast and loose in the matter, and therefore appealed to the board from the decision of the chair. Mr. Marsh asked on what motion the appeal was being taken. The president replied there was no motion belore the house. Dr. Boal moved then that the board should adjourn. The board then ad journed sine die. THE NEW BOARD. Tea minutes later Mr. Baker, clerk of the board, called the meeting to order and stated the first business was that of electing a temporary chairman. Mr. Pattee was elected temporary chairman and then came tbe question of electing a temporary clerk. Dr. Wills, Mr. Track, Mr. Buehler, Mr. Stine, Mr. Ash man, Mr. Piatt, Mra. Hugbee, Dr. Pep per and Mr. Pattee answered to the first roll call of the new board. Dr. Wills nominated Mrß. Hughes in a very eulogistic speech and pointed out her many earnest and diligent eerviceß to the educational systems of the city. Mr. Buehler nominated Dr. Pepper. A question arose as to how the elec tion should be held, Dr. Wills contend ing that the vote should be viva voce, while the printed rules provided for all elections by ' ballot. The temporary chairman said that there couid be no misinterpretation of that rule. Dr. Wills said there was as yet no code of rulee adopted. The chair rilled the elections to be by ballot. So a ballot was taken, which resulted in six votes for Dr. Pepper and three for Mrs. Hughes. The chair de clared Dr. Pepper eleced and that geu tleman then assumed the chair. The c«ntractor for removing the Seventh-street school house <o Santa Fe avenue presented the names of S. W. Luitweiler and O. H. Tibbitts as securi ties on his bond. The superintendent was instructed to have a contract drawn in accordance with the terms and with tne BUieties above named. There was evidently a desire on the part of the board to get rid of the pres ent clerk of tbe boaid. Mrs. Hughes had mede a motion to adj mm, but that was voted down, 6 to 3. A motion was now made to go into an election for clerk, by Mr. Trunk, and carried. The nominations were Mr. N. P. Piatt and Mr.'Baker, the present in cumbent. A ballot waa then taken and resulted in the choice of Piatt by a vote of 6 to 3. A recess of 20 minutes was then pro posed to give the chair a chance to pre pare tbe Btanding committees. Carried. Mrs. Hugbes moved that the clerk be paid $15 per month, just * Mr. Baker, his predecessor, received, which was carried unanimously. Dr. Pepper, president of the board, now rose to announce the standing com mittees for the ensuing term : Supplies—Piatt, Stine and Buehler. Teachers—Trask, Buehler, Piatt and Mrs. Hughes. Ways and means—Wills, Piatt and Pattee. Janitors—Piatt, Track and Ashman. Buildings—Stine, Ashman and Bueh ler. Rules—Trask, Buehler, Mrs. Hugheß, Piatt and Wills. Visiting—Mrs. Hughes, Wills, Piatt. Finance—Pattee, Piatt and Wills. Insurance—Buehler, Ashman and Trasa. E£Mr. Stine moved that the Seventh street Bchool removal matter be referred to the committee on buildings, with power to act. * On motion of Mr. Track, adjourned till Monday, January 18,.1893.
