Tub Southern Pacific Company by its capable representatives here, Assistant General Freight and Passenger Agent Crawley and Superintendent Muir, have invited the delegates to the Interna tional Irrigation Congress to visit Beau mont and Indio on a special train on Monday. The delegates will enjoy the trip and will Bee some interesting and striking irrigating works. The San Francisco Kxaminer inti mates that the widwinter fair of that city will have a revenue from entrance fees of $1/.00,000. What wbb the mat ter with our chamber of commerce, that usually never-failing resolution pro ducer? If it or the board of trade had taken the matter in hand in time Los Angeles might have had an exposition oi its own instead of, as will be the case, helping out Han Francisco. New York turned out well at Chicago yesterday on Manhattan day, showing that some American feeling still exists among the people of that Anglicized city. As a Chicaco writer put it re cently, the severest blow New York has had since the securing: of the World's Fair by an American city was the deleat of the Vaikyrie by the Vigilant. That this opinion was a little severe was proved by the large number of Knicker bockers who visited the great show yes terday. The supreme court did not take kindly to the idea of interfering with Receiver Willey of th 9 Pacific bank of Ban Francisco. Instead of securing their writ of prohibition the applicants have been put off by the court until next month. The bank commissioners and General Willey wili thus have an oppor tunity of stopping the extraordinary disappearance and shrinkage of valu able asEete. On the j.: inciple that it is better la'.e than never, the action taken iR much better for a conscientious hand ling of the remains oi the bank. .loc't'H Fitzgerald's friends are taking it for pranted that, that eminent jurist, and deservedly ad/iiired man, is a can didate for the nomination for governor oi the state-, atltie handß of the Repub licans, nnd are already doing what they nndouhtedly think is good work for him. Tho judge would prove a most dangerous candidate, looked at from the point of view of a Damocratic journal. His personality is bo strone, bin quali ties to admirable, and his ability of bo high an order that he would be a brave man who would accept a nomination entailing a campaign against him. But if report be correct some of the judge's Iricn Js are more zealous than wise, and some of those most prominent in bis service are not of a standing to do him the moat good. Farther than this tbe arrangement of a programme by them of the distribution of offices ia not a well-judged move. The judge is one of tbe best politicians in the state, and ia nndoubtedly wise enongh to remedy at once any errors that his admirera may have committed. A LESSON FROM RECENT RAILROAD ACCIDENTS. In view of the daily recurrence of ter rible and fatal accidents to the travel ing pnblic in the eastern states, on the great railway systems, it may be well to inquire to what they may be attributed and how they may be lessened. To wholly avert accident is impossible. Many accidents occur through defect ive machinery, such as poor switches, faulty brake action, broken rails and spreading gauges. But these causes supply but a small per centage of the ghastly roll that goes to make up the yearly tally. But accidents from this cause are rarely the source of much loss of life. The class of accidents that oc cur at high speeds, with their concom itants, fire, telescoped cars and explos ions, are caused by the liability to err in judgment that is common to tbe train hand witii the rest of humanity. This 'is especially the case where the man is ! overworked and his brain soddened with fatigue. As the human physique va ries so does the capacity for work, and what is but reasonably long hours for one man may another prostrate long before its termi nation to such an extent that be is not in lit condition to weigh tbe pros and ; cone, or even understand thoroughly so |as to execute intelligently the written orders of his superior officer. No fair minded man believes for a moment that it is criminal negligence that prompts a man to sacrifice his dnty ao far as to im peril tbe lives of bia passengers and, with them, hie own; at leaßt in the great majority of cases. During the first thrill of horror the public, ever prone to punish, cries out for vengeance on the unfortunate train hand whoee tired brain refused to rise to the occasion and waa only equal to carrying out, mechan ically, tbe routine he was accustomed to. For note well that most, if not all, of these wrecks occur from a neglect or apparent neglect of an order to deviate from the usual routine. Now ac there exists no motive on tbe part of the train hand to neglect or alter this order, but on the contrary many strong pereonal reasons for its execution, we are forced to the conclusion that the brain of tbe overworked man is an unreliable quan tity ; especially is this so where it calls for tbe comprehension of a plan of ac tion at variance with something that previous custom had made him too fatally familiar with. The public will say tbeae men should not be overworked, and the manage ment which overworks them should be punished ; but here again arises a very big difficulty, partly pointed out above, in the impossibility of gauging one man's work by another's. Either you overwork many men by comparing them with those who are physically superior • to triem,~ nr you uuaerwora a uumuet to reduce them to the capacity of the weakest. Again, once admit this as a j valid excuse and a spur to carefulness is removed, and the center of blame, so to ; speak, is shifted, leaving it an open question where to place it. Clearly then some other and more reliable machine than the human brain must be found by which to avert the possible misconception that may arise between the train despatcher and the train hand who carries out his order. In Europe the block system has been iound very effective and it has undoubted merit. By this means no train is allowed into a space or block until it ia reported clear for passage. On some single lines tbe locomotive driver receives a staff at the station where he enters and delivers it where bis train leaves tbe limit of the staff run. The train coming from the opposite direction cannot enter tbe run unless the stafl' is there to accompany him, thereby assuring the fact that no two trains can be caught as they were on the Grand Trunk on Friday last. This system has not found favor for some reaßon amongst American railroad ers, possibly because having bogun on another method and trained their men to use it, difficulties would arise in the way of an alteration. The writer does not wißh here to advocate any particular method, but only to point to the con clusion that less responsibility must be put on the train bands, and more on Borne mechanical device. THE PEST FIGHTERS. The Santa Ana Blade speaks of "the withdrawal oi Professor Coquillet and R, M. Ivoebele by the department of agriculture from the state ac the result of the indecent wrangle created by El wood Cooper, president of the State Board oi horticulture, over the custody of the insects imported from Australia to deßtroy the scale parasites." Professor Koebelo was not withdrawn. He has gone to Hawaii to accept a gov ernment position, oil'ered him as a con sequence of his invaluable efforts to help the orchardists of this state. Professor Coquillet, we are informed, wbb recalled by the department prob ably because be had ceased to be of aa much credit to the bureau here as he might be in some other place. President Cooper created no wrangle, but tho conniving enemies of Mr. Koebele did, and have been hurt by their own petard as a result. The state board of horticulture nnd its very efficient experts are doing very excellent work, nnd the orchardists ore not likely to suffer now that the wranglers have been ousted. Discussion of the world's parliament of religions continues in the pulpit and tbe religious press, and the verdicts on it ran all tho way from hearty praise to shuddering contempt. Tbe Key. Dr. Dix ia reported to have recently charact erized tbe parliament aa a "maeterpieco of Satanic ingenuity." It is a little diffi cult to understand such heat. What * LOS ANGELES HERALD, SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 25!, 1893. waa done at Chicago waa aimply to illus trate in a concrete form what travel and tbe comparative atndy of religiona have for yeara been bringing to the minds of men. Those types of belief and religious theory, says the New York Evening Post, which travelers and such publi cations ac The Sacred Books of the East have made more and more familiar, were grouped, by their representatives, on the platform at Chicago, and it ia difficult to see why those who admit the educating valne of travel and the comparative method should condemn the display of their well-known results. It recalls the intense prejudice which existed 50 years ago in this country against a theological education gained in Germany. There was no telling what ideaa a man might bring back from a land where theological professors en couraged inquiry and drank beer. That haa pretty much passed away, and even the most orthodox of American semi naries have their fellowships to send promising graduates for two or three years' atndy in German nniversitiea. In deed, it ia now no small part of the glory of some of the most eminent of the con servative theologians of this country that they went through in their youth the perils of German rationalism and came out absolutely unscathed. THE JUSTICES' COURTS. Oases Which Were Under Consideration Yesterday. Charles Williama and Frank White were seen by Officer Matuezkiewitz en tering a Chinese house on Apablasa street Friday night. lie inquired what they were doing and as they could give no satisfactory account of themselves he arrested them. On being searched at the jail they were found to be carrying loaded revolvers and a number of skele ton keys. Yeeterday they were taken before Jus tice Austin and charged with carrying concealed weapons. They were found guilty and fjbmmitted to appear tor sentence Monday. Ah Sam was fined $2 yesterday by Justice Austin for peddling fruit with out a license. THE CORONER'S WORK. He Investigates Three Cases or Hodden Death. Coroner Catea was notified yesterday of three cases demanding an official in quiry. One was on the body of Tom Newly of Santa Monica, who is stated to have died from a too frequent use of absinthe. The second case is that of Mrs. Susan Louke, an old woman of 70 years of age, who died from natural causes, and the third victim was a colored woman, who died, presumably from natural causes, at 1022 Alhambra avenue. Camlnetti's Mining Bill, Washington, Oct. 21.—Caminetti of California today introduced a bill to amend the mining laws, which provides for a new rule making land, supposed to be agricultural, adjoining mining ground, mineral land also, unless it is proved not to be such. This is to place the burden of proof on the persons seeking to enter the land for purpce-s other than mining. It also contains a section directing the government to construe the mining laws with great lib ,-,i>ti... ..ion. ... - : ♦> i—lng applicants every opportunity to secure title. - NICOIX THE TAILOR ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ I ' ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ 134 V\ 134- SOUTH SOUTH SPRING / SPRING STREET STREET m? imagine m f~Y\ rr; T) \ '"P Made t0 Order of the Finest Cloths, $iS.

ANGELENO HEIGHTS. The Snccessful Auction Bale by Kaston. Kldrldge & Co. The auction sale oi Angelefto Heights property which was conducted yesterday afternoon by Messrs.
