HorrowiuK Money.
Borrowing money upon tbe installment
plan Is attended with Iheso advantages: Tho
loan can be repaid in small monthly amounts
which Include the Interest and part of the
principal, so that by the expiration ot the
term it can be all paid without an" great in
convenience to the borrower. The rate or In
terest is generally lower. The expenses of ob
taining tbe money are not so great as ln ordi
nary loans, and if it Is borrowed upon good
paying property then it often happens that
the rents will meet the monthly Installments
and ln time pay off the debt.

One of the finest improvements in
the city will be the re-building of the
Lafayette Hotel. The whole of the
back of the house is already being
torn down, and the front will shortly
be built up. The stores will be just
half as large as they are now, and, as
the Important has a very large stock
on hand, they will not have half room
enough for their goods and in order to
prevent them from being damaged by
dirt and dust, they have decided to
sell all their Spriug goods at less than

A Significant Victory.
At her regular municipal election
held a short time ago, St. Louis elect
ed Mr. Barrett, a Democratic Mayor,
in a triangular contest. Shortly after
his inauguration Mr. Barrett died
and another election became neces
sary. The second contest was even
handed, there being but two candi
dates nominated. The Democrats
nomiuated James H. Britton and the
Republicans and their journals sup
ported one of Mr. Barrett's competi
tors— Henry Overstolz—the Inde-
pendent nominee. A very large vote
was polled, the Democratic nominee
receiving 15,611 and the Independent
candidate 14,944 votes. This election
was the first for many years in thecity
of St. liouis where an even-handed
contest for the Mayoralty took place
between two candidates who were un
supported by a ticket on eltlier side,
and in it the Democracy won a decided
victory over the combined forces of
both the Independents and Republi
cans. Socially the two candidates
stood on equal grounds. Both were
old and highly esteemed citizens and
both were men of acknowledged
They Die Early.
A late number of the San Francisco
Chronicle contains a sterling and a
stinging article on the "Treadmill of
Business," which is a keen rebuke to
the thousands of tireless schemers for
more dollars to add to the millions
they already possess. It is a notable
fact that no successful business man
ever becomes a gentleman of elegant
ease and leisure in California. The
greater the fortune tbe greater the de
sire to make it still greater. Our rich
men die early,and the interim between
their last visit to the counting house
and their funeral is always so short that
old friends are shocked at the death
notice to-day of those they met on the
street as well as usual yesterday. No
where in the civilized world is the
greed for gam stronger than among
the rich men of California. Money
getting is their ruling passion, and it
is strong even unto death. They die
counting interest, and the last thing
toward which the glazed eye is turned
is the money chest. Hundreds of rich
men have died in San Francisco who
ought to and who would have lived
twenty years longer had they retired
from business after they had acquired
a million dollars, and lived as wealthy
men live elsewhere, on and not in
their money. Well, let them go.
Their death is the only door they ever
opened for the advancement of men of
younger years, smaller means and
greater incentives.
A Conundrum for the Council.
The Herald Publishing Company
are rather proud of the warm feeling
manifested toward them by their re
spected and respectable friend in the
Common Council. He is a leader, and
if there is one thing for which we
have a more profound respect than an
other, it is a leader. We accept the
town report that he is King of the
Council, and our admiration for kings
expands almost to the confines of
adoration. We adore kings because
he is a beggarly autocrat indeed who
Hnes tint wield some newer, and nower
is one of the shrines at which the world
bows down and worships. Vasquez
was greater than the rascal who
cringed at his frown and fawned for
his smile. Three-fingered Jack tow
ered above the coward who was afraid
of hiin.Jand if Nero had not fiddled
while Rome burned it is a basket of
apples to a Councilman we had never
heard of the drunken old tyrant.
Power is a great thing. All men re
spect it. We once knew a man to
burn up a fine suit of clothes out of
respect for the power of a polecat.
Why should not the Herald respect
the power of its respected and respect
able friend in the Council ? Every
body assures us he is the Sir Oracle of
that body and when be opes his lips
no Councilman, save Workman, dare
bark. If, as everybody says, our re
spected and respectable friend is the
one man eloquent, the presiding
genius, the Mikado, the Bashaw, the
man with the spear-point tail and the
three-pronged fork of the Common
Council, why, he is a man of power;
and we respect power, therefore we
respect him; yea,we more than respect
him, we regard him with the awe and
veneration that possesses the pagan
worshiper while prostrating himself
before his wooden-headed Josh. Feel
ing thus toward our respected and re
spectable friend, the King of the
Council, we with bated breath, down
cast eyes, trembling limbs and halting
tongue beg to submit for his consider
ation and that of those statesmen who
are so happy as to be ruled over by
him, the following easy little conun
drum: For the compilation of a book
of "about" two hundred and fifty
pages the Council agrees to pay the
compiler $250, and for printing this
book of "about" two hundred and fifty
pages the Common Council agrees to
pay the Herald Publishing Company
about $330. The compiler, however,
only furnished matter for a book of
one hundred and seventy-five pages,
and the Common Council increases
his compensation to $350. Now in the
same ratio and on the same principle
of economy how much in excess of
$330 should the Common Council pay
the Herald Publishing Company for
printing the book of one hundred and
seventy-five pages?
The Future of Los Angeles.
Guessing at the future of Los Ange
les from the signs of the past and the
indications of the present, we should
predict she would become the railroad
centre aud manufacturing emporium
of Southern California. Already four
railroads run into this city, and by the
middle of Summer the whistle of the
locomotive will be heard on the fifth.
It will not be long before she will be
the Western terminus of one and per
haps two transcontinental roads.
Railroad centres almost always be
come manufacturing centres, anil Los
Angeles possesses elements and advan
tages which preclude the possibility
of her becoming an exception to the
general rule. She is so far removed
from San Francisco, the great central
point of the State, as to necessitate the"
manufacture of the greater proportion
of what is needed to supply the various
wants of Southern California. The
foothills which fringe the Western
Hue of what is now the city proper,
afford means for the introduction of
water power sufficient to run the ma
chinery of a Lowell or a Manchester.
The near proximity of the vast mining
regions guarantees a home market for
a large share of our home manufac
tured articles. The railroad centre aud
the manufacturing interest in connec
tion with the beauty of location and
the salubrious climate, will draw to
our city immense wealth, and it is not
hazarding much to say that within a
few years the suburbs of Los Angeles
will contain the villa homes of hun
dreds of wealthy men who live here
because this is the most desirable
place they know of iv which to live.
In addition to the features named we
may say that liOs Angeles is destined
to become the capitol of a State cre
ated from the Southern half of Cali
fornia. San Francisco a tid the middle
portion of State are jealous of South
ern California; suppose they let it go
in peace.
Books and Bolander.
Superintendent Bolander received
the plaudits of nearly the entire com
munity, even though he was defeated,
in opposing the change of school text
book readers; but when it was
discovered that his opposition to a
change only extended to the readers,
and that he was an advocate of a
change in geographies as well as of
other text books, the question began
to be mooted whether It was the peo
ple or the publishers of McGuffey's
series of readers for whom he felt a
sympathy. Among those who seem
to entertain the latter opinion is Ban
croft, the publisher of the Pacific
Coast Series, which the State Board
selected to take the place of McGuf
fey's readers. Mr. Bancroft asserts
that the defect in the record on which
the Supreme Court set aside the action
of the Board was caused by neglect on
the part of Superintendent Bolander
to enter the order of the Board on the
minutes. However this may be, it is
evident be is doing all in his power to
retain McGuffey's books in the
schools. Immediately after the decis
ion of the Supreme Court, a majority
of the State Board of Education peti
tioned Superintendent Bolandf.r to
call a meeting of the Board. This he
refused to do. The law requires that
the State Board of Education shall
hold at least two sessions per annum,
at the call of the Secretary, which is
Superintendent Bolander. The last
meeting was held on the sth of last
January, aud adjuumed to meet at the
call of the Secretary. But the Secre
tary refuses to issue the call, and as
his ottice will expire about the 10th of
December, he has it in his power to
prevent a meeting of the Board dur
ing his term. The Superintendent's
zeal in behalf of McGuffey's readers
is likely to injure our educational in
terests; for, aside from the text book
issue, the failure of the Board to meet
will affect our public schools and par
ticularly the High schools, as an im
portant committee will fail to report
on a course of study for the higher
A Market House Needed.
Editor Herald: Strangers coming
to Los Angeles after having read in
our papers the glowing accouuts of
the fruits, flowers and vegetables
raised in semi-tropial California, in
quire the first thing for the market,
that they may enjoy the sight of look
ing on this beautiful land's wonderful
production. When told all they can
see or buy is the miserable, sun-wilted
things the Chinamen rudely offer
from their carts, or as they come into
one's breakfast-room with their hats
on their independent heads, they are
apt to think it is great cry and little
wool. Who that has seen the beauti
ful results of the thrifty market gar
dening in the East, even while fight
ing the frost, with poor land and
costly fertilizing, can help wondering
at so little being done here in the same
line. The first and most important
discrepancy is, we need a city market
—a building where all the productions
of the farm and garden can be offered
to buyers. The whole world is invited
to come here, being told they can
make more than a living raising
Bmall fruits. They could if they had
a place to sell them. What can they
do with them now? Peddle them
from door to door ? Many a man or
woman might be able and willing to
produce a good crop to dispose of in a.
proper way, who would reasonably
object to doing It in any other way.
Every steamer brings to our ciiy men
with money to buy small farms. They
have come a long, costly journey,
bringing large famiies and, as they
say,"burned the bridge behind them."
On inquiring the prospect for market
gardening, they are told that the Chi
nese monopolize that trade. And yet
within a week, I know of a family
offering live cents per pound for new
potatoes without getting them. When
asking for four bits worth of peas,
were told by John,"No give tiim; you
had him yesterday." Is It difficult to
compete in an open market with such
trading as that ? Tho people of this
city do not love John so much that
they had rather trade with him at tlie
same price than with a white man or
woman. On the contrary, I have
heard ladies say they paid white men
more, even, to encourage them. At
present it is tak" it or leave It, U with
our house service. Any one who has
a garden of their own knows
what a crisp, cool melon, cu
cumber or head of lettuce is when
picked in the early morning and kept
out of Ihe sunshine, fan anything of
the kind be bought here of John? fan
Wilson's Albany, Triomphe de (land,
or Horticulturist strawberries be had,
as other cities have them. The China
men never saw them, nor will ho long
as we pay for what they are now rais
ing and there is no competition. Our
people are the most lavish in spending
their money if they can get a good
thing of any people in the world. Be
cause they eat food that comes from
San Francisco or has been carried
round many days in an old cigar box
or tin coal oil can, is not that they
don't know better or would not pay for
a good article, but because they cannot
help themselves. Cities of the Old
World no larger than this, with not a
tenth the money to spend for food,
have a daily market that is a pleasure
to see, a picture to renietnter always.
It is usually held in a clean paved
street, surrounded by high buildings.
They are over at eleven in the morn
ing) the police sweeping the atones al
most before the last cart has left the
square. At present our streets are not
adapted to a market of that kind,
though an open air market under the
city's direction would be better than
none. Shade is required to keep vege
tables from being almost worthless.
A light but not costly building in some
central part of the city is needed. It
would not bean expense to the city, as
a small tax would pay for it. Build it
and see if we cannot have a better
show of the good and beautiful things
of this fair land than now. "I offer the
above crude suggest ions, hoping others
may be Interested in the object and
the fact accomplished. S.
The Church Disaster.
Springfield, Mass., May 2>ih.—lntense
excitement prevailed at Holyoke last night.
The streets were filled with women und chil
dren, watching and iiiquring if friends had
been saved. The church was erected in 1870,
and was a wooden building ltHlxtiu feet, with
galleries extending around three sides, and
two doors in ftont and one in the rear. Most
ot ihe lives were IOSI at the frontdoors. Mr.
Lynch, the fireman who was first to urrive on
the ground, suys the scene was appalling.
Wedged tigli! and immovable in tlie doors
was a dense mass of humanity, while over
them sheets oi'fire rolled like s wave,stream
ing fur out into the open air. The hydrant
stream was st once turned in the door. The
Are department arrived shortly after and the
fire was attacked so vigorously that tlie
wooden walls ol tho building were left stand
ing. Fifty bodies have been identified, in ad
dition, to thirty removed by friends Nearly
90 have died, about to were more or less in
jured and a number burned to death.
The Coroners Jury was summoned to-day,
but the excitement continues -o great that
Judge thought it best not to attempt tnk; lig
evidence and tlie Inquest adjourned till Mon
day. It is now estimated that nearly 100 per
ished, while more than 200 were injured more
or less.

South Holyoke disaster: Dead, 71; fatally
burned, 22; otherwise burned and wounded,

Tbe street railroad will soon be un

to San Francisco for material, and it
is intended to complete the work by
the Ist of July.
A short time ago we announced the
arrival of a gentleman who came with
the intention of establishing a soap
factory in Santa Barbara. He has
taken the old tannery which will be
fitted up for the purpose, and is going
intoau extensive business. As he is
a man of capital, there is no reason
why the entei prise should not be a
complete success.
We saw a fine salmon trout that
measured sixteen inches in length,
which was caught from Steams' wharf.
We were not before aware that these
excellent fish visited these waters.
They afford fine sport for fishermen,
the most approved method for captur
ing them being with a trolling spoon.
It wouldn't cost much to make a rig
and try for them.
