THE MERCHANTS' TAX.
SOME OPPOSITION TO ITS REPEAL
BY THE COUNCIL.
The Kcpsallns; of the Ordinance Will
Diminish, the Annual City
tttTtnni by About
it 30,000.
Councilman Ninkell'e resolution in- '
traduced in tbe coanoil calling for the
repaal oi the tax npon merchant*, shop
keepers, etc., does notation the strength
desired to carry the proposition to a
successful issue at the present time.
The fact that tbe repealing ot tbe or
dinance will diminish tbe annual reve
nue of the city nearly $22,000 has put a
damper on the proposition. Oi course
tbe councilmen would like to see the
ordinance repealed if there waa any im
mediate way of making up the amount,
but some of them, taking the circum
stances surrounding the matter into
consideration, think that perhaps next
year may prove a far more successful
time.
The merchants' tax runs from $1 to
$15 a month upon each business,amount
ing to a monthly revenue of about
j $1800. The butchers' tax, which was
> included in the resolution, amounts to
about $160 a month, comparatively a
I mvi il sum. Other chops will be affected
. ami relieved of tax in case the ordinance
ie passed.
This matter, as well as the matter of
appointing nine additional policemen,
has been referred to the committee of
the whole, and will probably be brought
up for consideration at Monday's meet
ing of the council.
Said an official yesterday:
"The coat of those nine policemen—
in case tbey are appointed—will be j
$7500 annually. Add this amount to j
tbe $22,000, amount of revenue cut, off i
by repealing the merchants' tax, and
you have to raise nearly $30,000 from
some source to make up for it. Even
though a small amount, it cannot be
lowered at present,
i "I am of the opinion," concluded the
j official, that the matter should be de-
I ferred until next year when the tax
i levy is fixed, so that if it goes into effect
! the levy can be made accordingly."
THE BRACE CONVICTED.
Carter and Brady Found Ouilty of nigh
way Kobbery. -
John Carter and Joseph Brady will
i not wander along the sea-bore at Santa
Monica any more holding people up iv
i approved highwayman style. The jury
:in the Carter case returned a verdict of
guilty against bim yesterday at'tornoon
after being out an hour, and it took an
other jjry three minutes to convict
Brady.
They are the men who with a third
I partner held up F. M. "Carter, a Santa
Fe brakeman, while he was walking on
' the baach near the Arcadia with a lady,
one evening last August. Brady thrust
a revolver in his face, one of the men
choked him and they relieved him oi a
$200 gold watch and $25 in money. The
third robber held the woman, but could
not stop her ecreams. Two of them
then ran while Brady stood off a tenter
who bad come to Carter's assistance and
finally escaped bimseli.
The attempt! of counsel to shake Mr.
Carter's identification of Brady proved
futile to the last degree. Carter was a
railroad passenger conductor for eight
years and swore tbat he waa an expert
in remembering taces and voices. The
sentence of the two men was continnod
by Judge Shaw until Monday next, al
though both waived time. An effort
will be made to get Carter, who claims
to be only 15 years old into the Wbittier
state school.
GRIMES CAUGHT.
A Santa Ana Thief Taken In by tbe
Police Detectives.
William Grimes was arreated yester
day morning by Detectives Benson and
Auble, and held until the Santa Ana
marshal arrived to take charge of him.
Giimes iB wanted in Santa Ana for a
burglary committed there on October
6th.
A gun store was broken into and a
number of valuable revolvers and gunß
stolen.
A description of the stolen property
and of Grimes, tho supposed thief, was
telegraphed to this city, and a watch
kept on the pawnbroking stores.
Ou Wednesday Detective Benson was
in unued that a revolver had been
pledged at Steele's establishment on
Main street.
The officer went down to the store and
tound tbat Grimes had left. Tbe next
day Grimes went to Steele's again and
requested a loan on another revolver.
Steele went to the telephone to notify
the station, and Grimes skipped out. He
was chased by Steele and some bystand
ers, but managed to evade capture.
Later in the day Detective Benson
arrested him on Los Angeles street.
The Duty of Water
The amount of land that can be irri
gated by a cubic foot of water per second,
which i 8 60 inchee under four inch press
ure, varies according to character of soil,
productions, and climatic conditions. In
Southern California it is common to re
fer to the number of acres to the inch.
The (iage system lias one inch to five
acres, Alessandro and Moreno one to
four, Redlands one to four. Highland
one to six, Etiwanda one to eight,
Rialto Irrigation Dietrict one to eeven,
South Riverside one to five, we to seven,
and one to ten, Pomona and Ontario
one to ten, West Riverside one to seven.
In India they supply one to six, and
in Valencia, Spain, one to about live.
In Arizona it is from one to four to
one to ten.
The Bear Valley, and Arrowhead
Reservoir Companies have established
a unit of measurement which is equal
to one to eight—an acre feoD of water
being an acre water right is equal to one
to eight.
The Victor Irrigation Company will
adopt the same unit of measurement
and then let each land owner buy as
many of these units or acre water rights
as he may desire.

THEY ARE STILE IRRIGATING.
(.'outlined from tilth pige.
ere could not ran the Irrigation eyateme
aa profitably and as economically aa
private corporations could. It farmers
cannot run their own business, who
can? Irrigation districts are managed
in exactly the Same manner as munici
pal corporations, and there is no more
danger of profligacy and mismanage
ment on the part of the directors ol an
irrigation district than there ia on the
part of the city councils and trustees
and county supervisors.
Mr. Wrigbt raent oued a number of
irrigation districts which are today iv a
flourishing condition, and which stand
aa tin examnU of the work to be accom
plished under the VVright law.
•The district law of California of 1887,
was enncled for the purpose of meeting
this end. It was drafted with especial
reference to preserving the functions ol
popular government und with care that
no essential feature of such government?
as they have existed ior as«» should b<?
found wanting. The county litis its
board of supervisors which represents it
in its corporate capacity and gives direc
tion to all its efforts and through which
ia executed the popular will. The city
and incorporated town have a board ol
aldermeti, trustees or councilmen. who,
in like manner perform duties of sub
rtantially the same chatucter.
''The difference, and the only differ
ence, between these older municipal cor
poration and the irrigation district is
'.hat the duties of the former are of a
wider scope, embracing sanitary and tbe
more ordinary forms of public reguUi
tiona and the preservation of the public
peace as well ac the power to construct
public works of evory character, while
tbe irrigation dietrict haa but the one
end and aim, namely, tho furnishing of
sufficient water ior the irrigation of the
lands composing the corporation.
"All its efforts must be directed to
thia one end. But the (unction is pre
cisely tbe enme in charact'-r, as the
function which the incorporated city
poasoseee to construct a system of water
works for the domestic nse of its inhabi
tants; and tbe measure of the power
and the mitu.inr in which it ia exercised
is in the two instances the panic.
"Summed up in few words, the ir
rigation d strict, under the Cali
fornia statute of 1887, ia a municipal
corporation having the same powers
to construct irrigation works and lo
fnrm-h to nil ia:. t.- within it water fur
irrigation that are possessed by a city or
incorporated town to construct water
works and to furnish water to its inhab
itants for all domestic purpose". There
powers are familiar to all, and are read
ily understood."
In conclusion Mr. Wright said: "With
a little more time to complete those
works already started, and time to con
vince capitalists that their money will
be sad if invested in irrigation bonds,
tbeiutureof local government as applied
to irrigation in Southern California will
have been successfully demonstrated."
The Evening Session.
The evening Droceedings in the con
gress were opened by Col. R. J. Hinton
of New Mexico.
C. R. Rickwood of the American
society of irrigation engineers wae down
for the first paper, bat the chairman
called hia name in vain, and Colonel
Hinton took hie place.
"The nation's relatione to the irriga
tion problem and water management"
waa the title of tbe paper read by the
speaker.
Colonel Hinton gave a comprehensive
and detailed account of the money
spent by the United States in topo
graphical work and initiation.
He was emphatic in hia assertion that
he was opposed to the tranafer of public
lauds. Theire would, be no end to the
j wild Biid nnscrnpu'on.-i booming and
political chicanery tbat such-a coarse
would bring cboat.
The speaker wae enihueaetic in his
praise ot the western country and pro
fessed bimsell ready and willing tostand
in New York and ii against abuses
which might be levelled at. the west.
"I hollevp that every man wbo has a
farm under irrigation should pay for tho
means which bring bim the water,"
said the colnntt, "and I believe that the
government ahould neb that the water,
supplies are preserved for the nse ot
that man and regulated by the govern
ment."
At tha clone of his address the colonel
was gn t * d rith a considerable amount
of nppls.utt.
The next address waa from C. R
Rockwood of Arizona, of the society of
irrigation engineers.
Mr. Rockwood read nn extremely in
teresting paper on Irrigation Below tbe
Sea Level, explaining hia ideas by tbe
use of a rbart.
Mr. Rockwood discussed the proposed
irrigation of the Colorado desert by
means of the Colorado river.
The feasibility of the Bcbeme was
Bhown by the speaker, who contented
himself explaining tbe proposed irriga
tion without burdening his listeners
witb engineering technicalities aud fig
ures.
Tbe remainder of the evening was
taken up with a paper on Irrigation in
India, by George Anderson, M. I. O. E.,
of Madras, India, one of the most in
teresting addresses of the congress; Ir
rigation Legislation and Its Operation
in California, by Hon. W. S. Green of
Colusa.
The last paper was read by Robert R.
Stanton aud was descriptive of the
Grand Cafion of tbe Colorado from an
engineering standpoint.
The congress then adjourned until
9:30 thiß morning.

--muutPAilnus, nut dies not aasume responsi
bility for the sentiments expressed J
Towards the conclusion of ex-Mayor
Hazard's letter in last Sunday's Herald,
in which he criticizes my position on
the silver question, he says: "The eyes
of our people are being opened to the
grab conspiracy whereby silver was dis
credited in the money metals of the
world iv the interest ol bondholder and
creditor class," etc.; aud yet through-
out most of his letter Mr. Hasard is en
gaged in this self-same business oi dis
crediting silver, for in eQect he assumes
that it is the duty of the government to
redeem tbs silver dollar Id gold. Why
don't he insist that tha government
ought to redeem gold dollars in silver T
Both propositions are absurd and wholly
contrary to the true theory ol bimetal
lism. Under that theory, a standard
silver dollar ia just as legal and just
as honest, and is supposed to be
just as puissant In its own right, requir
ing no redemption by government or
other power an i the atandard gold
dollar, no tnoie rud no less. Under our
constitutions! double standard eyery
citizen has, ought lo have, and did
have for ov. i SO years, the right to
measure vain ■ ov' ell >er silver or gold,
i. a. by tU'ttnl"! worth or dollars freely
coined or osrvwl out ol the universal
mass ol eitiivi m«lel, at his option.
These metals nave vaioea oi their own,
which mankind nasiics to use in their
Simplicity ,v. its out l ophistication by
juggling «'oinsgH laws lor the measure
ment of the products of their labor; the
function of i ..• national government in
thia matter,bt ing witb a single exception,
strictly analogous t0 tbat of the state in
the eea'i !« oi weights and measures,
that ie.it mvirely certifies honesty and
the weight and fineness of eachstandard
coin ol either metal trret any
citizen may ask it to thus certify. With
ihi* duty performed the k»vernment's
duty ends. It leaves the coins of either
metal to take care of themselves, or
rather it turns them over in kind, and
only in kind, to the parties depositing
or furnishing the bullion. It guarantees
their weight and fineness, bnt it has no
more to do with guaranteeing the value
ol either than lias the party who brings
the bullion to the mint and receives ''it"
back itgsin, duly stamped and certified
and then puis it in circulation.
ltia preposterous to assert that "when
ever the government has coined a silver
(or gold) dollar tbe faith of the nation
a pledged to maintain it at a dollar,
compared with any other dollar." The
only interest or duty the government
hu>» in connection with maintaining the
vaiue ol coins of either metal, consists
in using always the cheaper metal in its
own payments as dictated both by self-in
terest and common sense, which, how
ever, mucli people and governments may
seek to evade it or wriggle around it
is the only known way in which, pri
marily, the general masses of the two
metals can be kept' on any common
level: and, secondarily,and ac a natural
result tnereof, the coins of each can be
kept at a genuine and not a bastard
parity, which is the kind oi parity the
United States government has been en
....ut ti iv maintaining, at tbe instigation
of greedy Shy locks, ever since it resumed
si ecie payments, nearly 15 years ago. If
it had adopted and adhered to this rule
of paying in the lower specie tbsre
wonld have been no serious divergence
between the two great money metals;
the relative value ol gold would not ba\»
almost doubled, thereby causing a fall
of commodities of from one-third to one-
half.
Mr. Hazard, like 10 many others,
loses eight altogether, apparently, of the
subtle peculiarity of all standards of
value, which fluctuate up and down;
whereas other standards, aa a rule, do
not fluctuate at all. And if one desires to
appreciate some of the momentous
influences on the welfare of mankind of
this rise and fall of tbe level of the
standard of value ac affected by the ex
pansion or contraction of the circulat
ing mud mm, let him read the remark
able p.i sage from Alison's history of
Europe, as quoted in tbe Hbuild of last
Monday, October 2d. Tbe profound,
long-reaching viewß therein expressed
should sink deep into tbe hearts of
every citizen. Evidently the eminent
writer had made a epecial study of tbe
the influence on human welfare of the
rise und fall of the level of money, aa
well as a study of history in general.
When money, from scarcity or con
traction, goes up, property goes down
with tbe same inexorable certainty that
one end of a teter-board must perforce
go down when the other end nm,
ani vies vorea. Al eon attribaei
the fail of the Roman empire to t c
scarcity and consequent rise in value i f
gold and eilver, and to the equally con
sequent and inevitable fall ot all other
property, together wifb the abject mis
ery and increased burdens which tbat
fail entailed. Within a century after
Columbus discovered the new world tbe
annual supply of tbe precious metals
for the use of tie globe was trebled, and
tbe prices ot every species of produie
were quadrupled, labor was rewarded,
enterprise was stimulated, the relatione
of society were changed, the weight of
feudalism c»st off and the rights ol man
established. Later, or from 1815 to
1849, Alison continues, from the effects
Of Bouth American revolution and
Eagliab, legislation, the scarcity of
money again caused it to become every
day more valuable, and all other articles
measured in money less ao; and as a
result, which many of us vividly re
member, all Europe in '48 waa aflame
with revolution, which, happily, wae
averted by the opening of the great
treasures oi nature in California and
Australia.
And now again, since 1873, not
through any failure of nature, but
through the deliberate, aad, one ia
tempted to say, devilish and revolu
tionary acts of human government],
about $1,590,000,000 in standard and
already coined silver has been wantonly
neutralized or "killed" aa potential
money, "discredited" as Mr. Hazard
save, having no more power to measure
values by its own right, than ao
much paper. And, aa ita place
inn-: be filled by an equal amount of
gold, a dangerous scarcity of that metal
hue been forced, and up again goes
money, and down go tbe products of
human labor tbat are measured by
money. And this baa bean going on
persistently now for 20 years; and if a
remedy ia not found must not revolution
ensue? Do not the impressive warnings
of history point with startling certainty
in that direction? We do not have to
look to nature or to the discovery of new
treasure hansea of the precious metals
for the remedy, for man haa
it already in hie own hands, coined and
ready for use, in the $1,500,000,000 ol
standard silver money, which the nation,
by legal enactment" and practice, and
Mr. Hazard and millions of others by
brgunients, peisiatently, and thus far
Bucceßsiully "discredit." •
