MONDAY, JANUARY :!0, IKfl.f. j
It would be a holy and wholesome
thing if the street car companies would
fill up the ruts in their tracks which are
at present such a great inconvenience
to those who have occasion to drive
over our principal thorough fares. Spring
und other streets would afford a fair
*i eld for a good deal of missionary work
\i the line of abating the cuss-words
that are now so frequent.
This morning the legislative commit
tees will hear arguments against the
further dismembering of Ljs Angeles
county. The Citizens' Non-Partizau Its
form association has been very earnest
In protesting against any further lopping
ofT from the goodly trunk of this county,
and it is to be hoped that that organiza
tion will be fittingly representad in the
discussions over the matter in Sacra
mento.
1 Los Anoei.es waß the scene yesterday
of an innovation in Chinese theatricals.
Hitherto it haß been customary to
have female Celeßtial characters perßon
ated by males dressed in women's
clothes. Last night a real, Simoarsure
female trod the boards. So it rjeema
that 'Melican man's ideas hava had
some effect on the Celestial mind after
all. This receptivity has hithvrto been
confined to tbe Japanese.
! A very distinguished delegation,
mainly of an official character, will
reach Los Angeles today from Salt Lake.
It will comprise the greater portion o!
the council and corporation of that city.
'They will undoubtedly be received with
i 1 cordiality, and they r-.io-. . ; !
'lorded every means of studying oar muni
cipal system. They are thoroughly wel
come to any lessons of a beneficial char
acter they may be able to acquire here.
There ought to be a decided feeling of
comity between the two citie». Years ago
there was agreatdeal of trading between
our own people andtboseof Utah. In fact
the then Mormon capital got all its sup
plies by mule team from Los Angel es
the Union and Central Pacific railways
not having been built at that time.
?That we shall Bhortly resume these in
timate business relations with our in
land neighbor we do not doubt. The
building of a railway to complete the
link between Lob Angeles and Salt Lake
*City is only a matter of a very little
time.
, The lata rainfall does not seem to
have been as generous to our southern
neighbors as to the farmers of Los Ange
les. Everything emphasizes the wis
dom, in a country like Southern Califor
nia, of utilizing every possible faciiity
for irrigation. There is water enough
running to waste in the Arroyo Honda,
the Los Angeleß, the San Gabriel and
Santa Ana rivers, and in tbe hundred
cations of the Sierra Madre mountains,
to irrigate every foot of land between
the mountains and the sea, tbat is to
cay, all that needs to be irrigated, for
there are numerous ranchos whose
moist and bottom lands require no arti
ficial precipitation. Los Angeles has
secured tbe holding of the National
Irrigating convention in her bounds,
, and by the time it assembles we ought
to be able to afford many new object
lessons to its members. We are not
now uaing half ol the water which is
available for purposes of irrigation.
The present legislature is by no moans
ito be without its scandals. There is
- something perennial in the disposition
of those bodieß to appoint supernumer
aries, and it seems impossible to stamp
, oat this vile jobbery. The people them
i selves are to blame for the abuse. They
invariably condonf it and treat it as a
joke rather than something quite Beri
, ous. And then they are illogical enough
: to grumble at an evil of which they are
• indirectly the authors. Why should
| any legislative body be permitted to
! outrage the public sense of right ? Is
there not something highly culpable in
gentlemen of high character allowing
their less reputable associates to be
smirch the bodies of which both are
members? If the higher cast senators
and assemblymen would only put their
foot down firmly the scandal would Boon
be a thing of the past. The locusts
of Egypt are not mote numerous than
i tbe clerks, eergeant-at-arms and other
officials that throng about tbe capitol
jat Sacramento. A great deal has been
, claimed for the biennial sessions of our
legislature. In our opinion, nothing
could be worse than tho long period
which intervenes between the meeting
and adjournment of the body, and tbe
next election. People have time to for
get all abont the shortcomings of their
■ervante; and, with the usual volatility
of Americans, they are very apt to do it.
If, while tbe community were in a white
beat after some gross dereliction of duty
npoc the part of their immediate rep
resentatives, the voters were called upon
to elect successors to the transgressors,
the result would be far more satisfac
tory. The natural indignation excited
by the laches or downright crime of
legislators would assert itself, and
would find strong and probably effica
cious expression at the polls, becnuse
persons of known probity and respec
tability would probably then be selected
to fill such trusts.
LONGEVITY IN OUR PUBLIC MEN.
It is really quite shocking the rav
ages which deatn has made of late in
the ranks of our distinguished men.
The death of Ben B"tier revealed a ca
rious fact, and that is that all his organs
were in a state of perfect preservation
when he died. His death was owing to
the rupture of a small blood vessel of
the brain, produced by a fit of excessive
ooagbing. The physicians state that
but for ibis accident Butler would have
probably lived for many years yet. His
age has not been correctly stated by his
biographers. He always had an idea
that he would be struck l>y the presi
dential lightniog some day, and be
dropped about ten yenrsfroni bis roster
to asniot his presidential boon), which
became smaller by degrees and beauti
fully less. Iv a country like Southern
California Butler would have lived to be
a hundred. Away back in 1843 —45 years
ago—he was the Democratic eundidate
for governor of Massachusetts. Iv those
days thoy never nominated a young man
for that office, which the people of the
B»y state looked upon as mora exalted
than the presidency itself. The strabis
mic Benjimirt was ninety, or near it.
Cariosity en ongli, he was the Democratic
candidate for governor of Massachusetts
iv 1800, and he was. nommated to that
office after he had voted for Jefferson
Davh forty-five times in tho Charleston
convention.
It is pie asant to look around and find
instances of halo old men in tbe midst
of the fearfully swollen necrological roll,
which has been lately enlarged by the
death of such comparatively young men
as Eutherford B. Hayes, James G.
Blame end Mr. Justice Lamar, all of
whom ordinarily would have had years
of usefulness before them. In the last
cumber of the North American Review
there was an article on the relations of
capital and labor by Mr. David Dudley
Field. It 13 written with great grac-i
and Bpirit, Mr. Field is quite ninety
years of ?£a, and time has in no sense
blunted his acumen and intellectual
virility, Hie style is as clear as a crystal
mountain stream fl jwiog over a granits
bed. He is in every sense a remarkable
man, physically and mentally. He was
always noted for the grout amount of
exercise he took and for his devotion to
the b3th. No more petfect example ex
ists in the United States of "a sound
mind in a sound body," that happy
conjunction of the Latin aphorism. He
bclonga to n rem?' k:\h\e family. A suc
cession of monumental misfortunes
broke down the vitality of his brother,
Cyrus VP. Field, but Mr. Jiißtico Field
gives every evidence of rivaling lub
eldest brother in vitality and longevity,
while the ltev. He nry M. Field wili also
probably carry out the long-lived tiadi
tions of the family.
Every one bei brei watchingthe long
car eer, illustrious as long drawn oat, of
Mr. Gladstone. The "grand old man"
sometime ago celebrated bis eighty
third birthday and is now in his eighty
fourth year. The manner iv which the
seeßionß of tbe house of commons arj
held are particularly trying to the en
durance even of young men. They are
frequently pros onged to the "wee ema
hours ayant thetwal,"audyet this mar
velone old gentleman can rise in hie
place and pour out a stream of elo
quence that no other memher can hope
either to stem or .rival. Hie voice iB as
clear as a bell and rings out like a clar
ion, his utterance is so rapid tbat few
stenographers can follow him, and his
impassioned delivery and force of argu
ment are a marvel to the house. Glad
stone also has been all his life in tbe
habit of taking a great deal of exercise.
His exploits in chopping down trees in
the park of Hawarden castle are fami
liar to all readers of newspapers. There
are hints that bifl health has at last be
gun to fail him, but this has become an
old story. After >-ach sensational nar
ration of the kind he rices in hie place
and displays his old time vigor and im
petuosity, Tbe gossips have already
gone so far as to select his successor in
tbe leadership of the Liberal party in
the person of Sir William Vernon H?.r
court. a comoaratively young man, but
stranger thiagi have happened than
that Gladstone Bhuu'id survive his lieu
tenant.
Queen Vlctorlu gives excellent indi
cations of living to a green old age. It
is very much a question as to whether
or no sho may not survive her son, who
is what is known as a "high roller."
The asionishing grip on life of the old
Emperor William surprisad acd pleased
Earopw, for he was a man rs good as
gold, and his life was a guarantee for
the peaco of the old woild. He not only
lived to a goodly age, but he waß able,
almoat to the Inst, to keep his seat on
horseback while be reviewed his troops,
which were EomfUmea hours in paseing
a given point. His friend and coun
selor, the illustrious Yon Moltke, man
aged to live over the nonagenarian lino,
and he was heard to remark a few days
before his death, "Ob, that I were only
eighty-one," A decade seemed to count
for much with the German hero. Up to
tbe very hour of death he preserved his
usefulness, and retained to the last con
trol of that wonderful machine, the
German army. Both old William and
the great field marsbal were fond of
taking a great deal of exercise. The
emperor waa much in the saddle, while
the long daily walks of Yon Moltke
were watched with great curiosity by
tbe people of Berlin. But perhaps the
most interesting figure of the emperor's
court i; n;le, from the standpoint of
longevity, was old Field Marshal Yon
Wrangel, The Emperor William waß
LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNTNG, JANUARY 30, 1893.
an aid-de-camp of Yon Wrangel's at
the battle of Waterloo. The latter was
selected to present the New Year's ad
dress to bis majesty when he was eighty
five and the hold marshal had turned
his hundredth year. In the course of it
he amused ids majesty and the specta
tors by telling the emperor that he was
a mere boy.
What was the secret of the remarka
ble longevity of these men? Of course
they were highly endowed with vitality
by natnre. But multitudes of men sim
ilarly endowed have burnt out life's
tnper before reaching the half century
mark. These illustrious Germans were
all, with the possible exception of Yon
Moltke, generous livers. Bismarck,
who is vi til on bis way to eighty, was
noted for the unbridled rein he gave to
his appetites. Tbe fact is, that tbey
were all trained athletes, and kept up
their habits of taking exercise, and
plenty of it, in the open air. They rode,
fenced and walked. They insured the
conversion of what they ate and drank
into a wholeeome chyme and chyle by
good air and abundant movement. It
was useless for an ordinary man to at
tempt to assassinate Bismarck. He was
on his assailant in an instant, and
handed him over to the police, as when
the eon of Karl Blind tried to kill him
in the etreets of Berlin.
In the United States our public men
neglect to take the precautions to insure
their health which those of Europe are
careful to adopt. Then our statesmen
are too intense. They allow themselves
little, if any, recreation. They forget
the saw ol Poor Richard that all work
and no play makes a dull boy and
a very sick boy, as well. They pen them
selves up in winter in heated apartments
and breathe a vitiated air that saps their
vitality. They would do well to imitate
the example of David Dud lay Field and
walk tvhere they are wont to ride, and
to realize that good fresh air is tbe very
principle of life.
Members of the senate and house
committees on foreign relations are
! not backward in expressing themselves
on the question of annexing Hawaii.
Senators Sherman, Morgan and Butler
are reported to be heartily in favor of it,
and Judge Chipman of the houie for
eign committee is the most mi: en
on the subject of all. The judge's re
marks have a ring to them that is re
freshing in these degenerate days when
it is the custom of the menagerie of
other nations lo slink out of sight
whenever the British lion roars.
The whisky trust announces a re

SOCIETY.
The Seventh Rtgiment Musical club
gave ope of its delightful entertainments
at Armory hall last Thursday evening.
A larger lumber of young ladies would
havo been present had the weather per
mitted. Tbe musical part of tbe pro
gramme was given in the parlors of the
armory. Owing to the absence of sev
eral members tbe selection of the quar
tette via> omitted as were several other
numbers.
The opening overture, the ever popu
lar Vienna DudeH' March, was given
with much Bpint by the club. Follow
ing this was a banjo duet by several
members of , the club. The medley
waltzes by the club were played
"moothly and were very inspiring.
Prof. Johu McCullough next recited in
a pleasing manner. The regimental
quintette played several selections.
Mr. 11. H. Schoreman contributed a
violin solo with his accustomed ability.
A potpourri of national airs played by
the club concluded the musical pro
gram. The company then adjourned
to the large hal, where dancing was
indulged in. Col. W. G. Schroiber was
the president of the evening. The mem
hers of the club are: Priv. A. C. Shade,

The woman's exchange will give ite
final party for the season at Armory
hall tonight. Tbe dances given by this
organization have been bright events in
the rather gloomy social world thia sea
son. They have always been patronized
by the leading society people, this being
made a special feature by the ladies in
charge.
The tickets for the present affair will
nit be on sale at the box office of tbe
hall as formerly, but cau be obtained
only from members of the invitation
committee. It is probable tbat tbe
event will be more successful than all ot
the previous parties. Delightful re
freshments will be Berved and good
dance music has been provided.
The cable and electric cars for all
points in the city will be in waiting at
the close of the dance.

One of the social events of the past
week well worthy of mention in this
column is the jolly tally ho party of
tourists that left Arrowhead Hot Springs
hotel on Wednesday morning. The
route taken by the party was through
the weli-kept orange and olive orchards
of ex-Governor Waterman's ranch, over
the magnificent toll road of the Arrow
head Reservoir company, winding, twiit
ing aud looping up the beautiful cufion
of the Arrowhead creek, to tbe lumber

AMUSEMENTS.
The young peoi le of the city am just
now busy with the National Pageant, to
jbe given February 0;h, 10th and 11th,
for the benefit of the News and Working
Boys' home. Rehearsals are the order
of the day. The Court of Isabella, with
its courtiers and attaches, will be one of
the scenes of the Pageant, in which the
Minuet with its courtly Balutes and
graceful nosings should be a marvel of
beauty.
The Colonial Kitchen will be an inter
esting study. It is blue Monday. The
paring of apples, spinning and churn
ing, add to its effectiveness, while the
nureing of the twins (the latest addi
tion to a family of 20), and the love
scene in the corner are true to life.
Another scene of great interest will
be tbe Signing of tbe Declaration of In
dependence, in which Mrs. Cora Scott
Pond Pope will appear as America,
The Battle of Bunker Hill is perhaps
the most thrilling and the strongest for
posing and effect. Tire great painting,
The Battle of Bunker Hill, furnishes
the model for this tableau, representing
the struggle in a hand to hand encoun
ter. The height of the battle is chosen
—the climax when Warren falls.
The hospital scenes are thrilling, clos
ing with the Emancipation Proclama
tion and a peace jubilee. Hands will be
clasped across the bloody chasm, and
Dixie will mingle its strains with Tent
ing on the Old Camp Ground.
Tun Grand—The musical comedy en
titled Our German Ward will be pre
sented at the Grand Opera-houße on
Friday, February 3d, by Middaugh's

Fred Sawyer, Miss Maie Woods, Jessie
D. Middaugh and Fannie Ogden.
This and tomorrow evenings Alba
Heywood will appear in New EJgewood
Folks, a play given by consent ot Sol
Smith Russell. The programme is
highly commended by the press and
public where Mr. Heynood has ap
peared.
Musical Matters.
The fifth of the series of musicales
was given by Mr. and Mrs. Gardner
Cogßwell at their residence on Flower
street, Wednesday evening. That they
are growing in popularity was shown by
the number of music loving people who
attended. The subject was Italian
Music and Italian Compoeerp. A short
synopsis of tbe life of tbe different com
posers was read by Mr. Cogswell as they
came on the programme—the works of
Cherubini, Rossini, Viotti, for the vio
lin; Scarlatti, who wrote the fugue
known as The Cat Fugue. (The story,
as translated from the Italian, is: The
maestro's favorite cat oue day walked
on the keys of his pianoforte, touching
the six notes as follows, g, b flat, c fiat,
f flat, c Bh.;rp, whereupon Scarlatti tak
ing the tones indicated he composed this
wonderful and difficult fugue). Doni
zetti, Verdi, Ricci, were listened to with
evident pleasure, and a tilting close was
the ovoriure to William Tell. Tbe sub
ject for the next musicals will be The
History of the Pianoforte.
The Students' Musical club will give
an #pen meeting on Monday evening at
Ludlam hall. The club is composed of

missioners at their recent meeting in
Washington, to confer with the presi
dent-elect as to his policy with refer
ence to the red man, called on Mr.

presidential appointments in the Indian
service and the appointment of only
such persons as "are creditable exam

character is itself a pledge that they
will use their office to promote the wel

.Proponed—The Commit
tee Report**
During Saturday's Beßßion of the
council's finance committee, Clerk Luck
enbach called the attention of the com
mittee to the manner in which tax sales
and redemptions had been conducted
heretofore. The collector, finding taxes
delinquent upon several lots in the same
block, owned, we will say, by A, B, C,
D and E. advertises tbe same for said to
liquidate taxes due the city. In due
process of law he sells the property, sub
ject to redemption on the part of the de
linquent taxpayers as provided by the
statute. After a while B turns up. He
has been away to Europe, or somewhere
else, and finds that his lot has increased
in value during his absence. He has a
chance to sell it well above its cost price,
and desires to do bo. The tax collector,
having Bold the property for taxes and
given a tax title to somebody therefor,
cannot release any one of these delin
quent taxpayers without releasing all
the rest. 80 A, C, D and E stand in the
way of B selling his property. There
fore B is compelled to go be'ore the
council and procure the passage of an or
dinance to allow the tax collector to ac
cept hi.-; payment of taxes before he can
sell his property. This will occasion a
delay of at leaet one week, perhaps two;
and in the meantime the intending pur
chaser is liable to be taken with a re
lapse.
Each lot should be advertised separ
ately, told separately, and, if sold, re
deemed separately. This would enable
a man to redeem his property at once
and get its value without delay.
The chairman of the committee, Mr.
Rhodes, said that the correctness of the
clerk's remarks Btiuck him very forcibly.
He had not given the matter a consid
eration before this, but he was very
much impressed with the necessity of
relieving real property of all encum
brances in the briefest possible manner.
He asked the clerk to reduce the matter
to writing and make it a portion of hiß
report to the council on Monday morn
ing next.
FINANCE COMMITTEE.
The finance committee will present
the following report the council today.
Your finance committee beg to report
as follows:
Recommend that the report of the
city auditor on the condition of the
funds for the week ending January 21,
1893, be filed.
Recommend that petition No. 61,
from ad. Harris, asking for a return of
$23.72 to him on account of an errone
ous tar sale certificate, be referred to
the city assessor to report to this com
mittee as to the facts. ■
Recommend that in all cases where
tax sales have been made to tbe city of
Los Angeles of two or more lots includ
ed in tbe same certificate of sale, that
the city clerk be instructed to mark re
deemed either of the individual lots
sold upon said certificate upon the pay
ment into the city treasury of the pro
rata amount for which the property
sought to be redeemed has been sold,
together with the penalties thereon,
Recommend that in the future no
money be returned to purchasers of tax
sale certificates on accouot of erroneous
or double assessments, when the appli
cant for said return holds a tax deed
from the city to other property issued
upon double assessments, nuleßS tbe pe
titioner for said rebate files with his
said petition a quit-claim deed to tbe
actual owner of said other property
upon which he has a tax deed on ac
count of the dcuble assessment.
PUBLIC WORKS.
The board of public works made tbe
following report on matters intended for
action tomorrow morning:
In tbe matter of the grading of Buena
Vreta street between Rock street and
Bellevue avenue, tbe city attorney lias
reported that there is private property
to be acquired, and we therefore recom
mend that further proceedings be aban
doned until after such property has
been acquired.
In the matter of the placing of fenderß
upon street cars, we recommend that
the city attorney be instructed to pre
sent an ordinance compelling street car
companies to put on fenders suitable to
protect life, aud that the ordinance now
in force be repealed.
Recommend that the grade on Mon
treal street he changed from Bellevue
avenue to Boston street and 80 feet
Bouth thereof, in accordance with the
recommendation of tbe city engineer,
and also that the city engineer present
