It has always been a subject of re mark that, considering the large amount of capital in Loa Angeles, we have not more pretentious business buildings here. We are away behind Seattle, Portland and Tacoma in this respect There are a number oi cities of twenty live thousand inhabitants that excel us immeasurably in towering piles devoted to business. Why this is so we are at a loss to know. It is probably owing to the same peculiar trait that has left the most attractive spot on the American continent without a fine hotel. At the same time our banks are numerous and plethoric with coin. We are afraid that we must own up to the fact that it is a lack of public spirit. It seems to be pretty well established that if we are ever to get a hotel here on the modern plan it moat be built by some person or syndicate from abroad. It ia high I time that thia person or corpora tion ihould materialize. Ab to busi ness blocks it iB pleasant to. know that the two or three handsome ones we al ready poaaesß are about to be increased by two aplendid edificea, the one the Bradbury block, which is now in courae of erection on the corner of Broadway and Third streets, and the other the Stimson block, ou the corner of Spring and Third, These will be edifices oi great solidity aud beauty, and will rep resent a large investment of money. Aa far as the Bradbury block has gone it gives evidences of aplendid arcntcecturai attractions that will only be aurpaßeed, if surpassed at all, by the Mills and Crocker buildings in San Francisco. Hitherto the Bryson-Bonebrake and Baker blocks, and a few others, have had to do duty for Loa Angeles with etrangera aa repreaentative of the wealth and enterprise of our people. In our residence quarters we have nothing to desire. Great taste has been exer cised there, and with most happy re mits. The task of creating a beauti ful home city has been made compara tively easy by the wonderful opulence of the gardens which can be secured in this climate with such little pains. A 'ten thousand dollar residence, owing to this spontaneity of nature, can be made to show more captivating features than one which has coat one hundred thou sand dollars in the eastern states. But our city is by no means lacking in costly private edifices. They abound on every hand, with their beauties magni fied tenfold by their inimitable sur roundings. It may not be oat of place to congrat ulate ourselves on tbe prodigality which nature haa shown to us in the matter of building stones. The whole Devil's Gate above Pasadena, and from which Pasadena derives her water supply, Is a mass of the very finest granite. There is enough of that material quite handy to Los Angeles to build half a dozen cities as large as New York. Then we have the lovely brown sandstone of the Sespe and of Flagstaff—two beautiful building ma terials that complement each other, and that harmonize moat delightfully. Effects can be produced by combining theee two atones that are indescribably beautiful and far beyond those which Ban be attained by employing tbe famoue Connecticut brow n atone. Then we have In the Colton marbles a building material of great variety and brilliancy. Though the employment of theae marbles has beeaquite limited, there are tt number »f 'Examples of their happy effect to be ■een fh Loa Angeles buildings. They ire employed in the pilasters of the tntrance of the Bryson-Bmebrake block there is a modest little building on West Second streot.near Broadway, in which the offices of the Sunset Telephone com pany will be located, that shows what happy results can be accomplished with this Colton marble. With all thia wealth of building mate rial there is every reason why we should look for a city of incomparable beaut In La Ciudad de la Rama de Los An teles. The place has the prettiest name In the whole world, and its physical characteristics, even in the business inarters, should be made to correspond with its romantic name and history. When our architects and landscape gar ieners shall combine to assault and Fub jugate nature we may look for un que md nnexampled results. Great wealth ixists here already, and it is destined to lecnmulate at a rapid rate. Tbe era of palace bnilding is about to ret in—in lead', it has already begun. Meanwhile, ire should see to it that out business buildings should correspond with the manifest destiny oi the place. Nature has here adopted tbe motto ol excelsior, and we ought to imitate her. There ie absolutely no excuse for not building up here absolutely the handsomest city in the world. It ie pleasant to know that in our public buildings we have made a good beginning. They are up to the standary of any city in the United States. Our private residences are all that could be desired. Now let us see to it that our business blocks shall be in keeping with our eclectic city, and all will be well. Meanwhile, there ought to be enter prise enought somewhere to give us two magnificent hotels. Two will pay better than one. As aoon as it ie understood that the cita of the Angels has luxuri ous accommodations for the tourist, he and his rejptives and friends will be here in countless numbers. THE HERALD VINDICATED. In that portion oi the grand jury's re port which relates to Mr. Banbury'b charges for exchange and expreesage ou moneys forwarded by him to Sacramento and deceived by him irom the state capital there is the fullest possible vin dication of the attitude of the Herald during the late campaign. There ia an attempt to whitewaah the late county treaeurer in thia report, but it ie a piti ful failure. That body says: "While it "does not seem proper to the grand jury "that any bills should be rendered "against the county for moneys not "actually paid out, we believe that said "charges for exchange were made by "Mr. Banbury without criminal intent "and under the belief that he was en "titled to receive the same." Now the people are not interested in Mr. Banbury's intentions. A certain fervid place is said to be paved with good in tentions. What they are intereated in ie that their money shall not be gotten away with by constructive charges for ex change and expreaaage. On the issue made by the Herald the people beat Mr. Banbury for re-election on the Repub lican ticket in a county that gave Presi dent Harrison 2107 majority. The voters want no hocus pocus arrangement by which their money is put into the pockets of an official who is fully paid for the work which he does. For our yeoman service in the cause of tbe peo ple and of honeßt and economical county government ex-Treasurer Banbury has sued the Herald for $20,000. He seeks to crush out the liberty of a free and manly preßS. It is a great pity that, in d'tcusßing this matter, the grand jury did not show a finer moral sense. Thia portion of its report will scarcely be a source of pride to its members in the future. It Bhows evidence of a moral catarrh which has prevented ita mem bers from smelling the rank turpitude that characterized the whole trarjsac tiou. A ONCE GREAT NEWSPAPER GONE. The suspension oE the Territorial En terprise, the pioneer. Jiewepaper of Nevada, has set many ot the oiu'l.uuo.a of the Comstock lode in a reminiscent mood. It was started in the little town of Genoa in 1858, and the firat number made its appearance on the 17th of October, of that year. Shortly after wardß the rich mines of Virginia City were discovered, and the office was re moved to that city. With the great rush that followed after the diacovery that town swelled suddenly from a camp into the moet remarkable mining city ever seen on the Pacific coast. Fortunes were made rapidly, and the mines be came the marvel of the world for rich ness. The Enterprise kept pace with the prosperity of the city, and waa at one time the greatest newspaper this side of the Kocky Mountains. Perhaps no journal in the country is identified with co remarkable a list of eminent men once connected with it as writers as the Territorial Enterprise. Mark Twain (Sam'l Clements) first tried "hia 'prentice hand" at humorous writing in that office. He and Dan de Quille made the local columns of the paper brilliant with their exuberant fan cies every morning. Judge C. C. Goodwin, C. A. V. Putnam, Joseph T. Goodman, Rollin M. Daggett, and occa sionally Senator J. P. Jonea and Tom Fitch made the editorial department of the Enterprise inßtinct with the atrength, originality and logic of their utter ances. The paper waa over-mature with talent, and was aa largely sought in San Francisco as it waa on the Com stock. Had the Enterprise been pub lished in a growing and permanent city instead of a mining town, whose pros perity must naturally be butephemeral, it would have become one of the great est, journals in the country, and have had a lease of life of cauntlesa years. But with the decadence of the mines its fortunes alao waned, until the field for itc uaefulneaa was entirely ewept from under it, and it had the experience com mon to all newapapsra started in ephem eral towns. It will, however, long be remembered by the pioneers of the coast as one of the brightest newspapers ever issued from the press. . The Republican senate caucus held a meeting yesterday and decided upon the admission of the territories of New Mex ico, Utah and Oklahoma as states. They reported against the admission of Ari zona on the grouad, forsooth, of her ter ritorial debt. The real reason is because the sun-kissed territory would send two Democratic senators to the senate of the United States. This proposition of ad mitting Oklahoma is a vile Republican job. That territory has about one-tenth of the wealth and one-third, or lees, of the inhabitants of Los Angeles connty. Tbe caucus was careful to place the question of admission in the order of business immediately after the Nicara gua canal qusstioa, which means that it will probably not come up at all this session. Oklahoma a etate! Great. Ca33ar! Surely the Republicans are hard up for votes in the senate. Mdrder is steadily increasing in the United States. The Chicago Tribune has carefully collected the statistics for LOS ANGELES HERALD; WEDNESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 25, 1893. 1802. and they show that there were 6792 murders committed last year against 5906 in 1801. In 1890 the number wae 4200 and In 1889 3567 This ia a fearful showing, and may in part be traced to the loopholes of the law and the leniency of the courts in adm>n iatering it in the caee of persona charged with homicide, for the number of judi cial hangings decrease in ratio with the increase of murders. In 1891 there were 123 judicial executions and in 1892 107. When there exists only one chance in sixty-five that a inur lerer will be pun ished, the reason for tbe increase of capital offenses is clearly explained. If the man who imbrues his hands in his fellow'B blood knew that his punish ment by the law was certain, he would, in nine cases out of ten, refrain from his homicidal work. A greater value must be placed on human life and the punish ment by the law must be made more sure and certain if we wish to arrest the saturnalia of capital crime which now defaceß our civilization. The general public will not grieve much over the fact that the lumber men's combination for keeping up the prices has collapsed, aud that every firm is now standing on itsown bottom. The scale of prices to which they were all bound has been shattered, and the con sequence ie that lumber has fallen at leaßt twenty per cent from the prices maintained when the combination was in existence. This is the result first of the oversupply of the mar ket, and next of the fact that too many dealers went into the business. It is also due in no small degree to the fact that Redondo has become a formid able rival to San Pedro as a landing point for lumber. Whether the present' depression in priceß will continue for any length of time, however, iB doubt ful. Lumbermen are very much alive to theirown interests and they will prob ably adopt some practicable course to restore the market to its old condition. In tbe meantime, however, those who contemplate building should take ad vantage oi the fine opportunity the present prices present for making eco nomical improvements. Senator Carpenter telegrapbß to Councilman Nickel! and othera that there ia a powerful lobby working at Sacramehto for the further dismember ment of Loa Angeles county, and that wu. uoDiio iv prevent it tuey had better be up and doing. Thia is true. A lot of influential gentlemen are "rustling" like beavers for the crea tion of the county of San Antonio, with Pomona as tbe county seat. They are alert and energetic and know what they are about. There is a strong lobby on hand advocating the creation of the projected county of Riverside, while the proposed couuty of Saa Jacinto is iv ca pable hands. Take it for all in all, there is a great deal of county division activity displayed at-Sacramento just P9lk.^iJ i \9,ihi o ip.^uv depicted in the old aaw, "what is every body's bucinesa is no man's business." THEATRICAL MATTERS. The Grand—The play New Edgewood Folks ia a comedy of American life which will be aeen at the Opera house beginning January 30th. The play makea no pretentions to elaborateness or high finish but pleasant and enter tainiEg and free from the extravagance, coarseneaa and utter absurdity which make up the stock-in-trade of co much that ia called modern comedy. Mr. Heywood's specialties are strong on the thread of the story, with a good deal more consistency and natnralneea than ia common where anything of the kind ia attempted. They aid made to bear a part in the unfolding of the plot, and co have some excuse for their existence. There is nobody ou the stage who can aing a comic Bong with unite such facile neatness, and certainly nobody who so unmistakably enters into the Bpirit nnd meaning of his work bo heartily aa Mr. Ileywood. Tuhsvekeis Hall—The national pa geant, which ia to be given for the bene fit of the Neweboya' home, waa partly rehearsed last evening at Armory hall. A rehearaal of the Pilgrim acene took place. An orchestral interlude precedes the historical sketch given preparatory to the Landing of the Pilgrim Fathers. The orchestra plays Rule Britannia, and the curtain rises on the historical scene. The central figures are Governor and Mrs. Carver and the kneeling Indian. Surrounding them are the other mem bers of tbe bnnd, all gazing intently at the strange savage Prof. F. E. Storer, as Governor; Mrs F. L. Groavener, as Madame Carver, and Mr. A. Bradden, representing the Indian, form an im pressive center of the tableau. Not a word was spoken, and the groups looktd aa if caryed from etone. It was a pic turesque and yet faithful scene. Tbe Pilgrim garb was accurately reproduced, and the who', acene was most interest ing and instructive to tbe student of history. Tbs cast is made up as follows: Mines 9, Randall, L Reynolds, N. P. Grassy, L Hellingewortb. Misses Etta Smith, L«na Forrester, Maud Newell, E. HyneS, L. Hynee, Latha Lewis, Jeannette Haserman, Coral Harrieou. Messrs. W. M Edwards, F. L. Groves ner, Harry Germain, G.

The department of Arizona has its headquarters in this city, the offices be ing on the fifth 9>>or of the Brvson- Bonebrake block, at the corner of Seiond and Spring streets.

About that time the war department though: he had been "roughed" about aa much as was good for him and sent him to West Point ac assistant in structor in infantry tactics, where he re mained until April 24,1861, when the civil war broke out.
