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
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.
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 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
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.
Oases Which Were Under Consideration
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

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

Coont Vanderbeck, the rehabilitated
baseball magnate of the Pacific coast, is
in receipt of an interesting letter from
Mr. R. J. Glenalvin in regard to the
players he has signed for tbe fall season.
The men engaged, as will be seen by the
list already published in these columns,
are all individual stars and nearly all
local favorites. Tbe wires are being
kept hot in endeavors to engage others
of local fame to add zest to the affair.
Tbe team to meet this aggregation first
is the Oakland club which is composed
of the following players: Tip O'Neill,
captain and second base; William Brown,
first base; Van Haltren, short stop;
Denny, third base; Mines, right field;
Hernon, center field; Cantillion, left
field; Speer, catcher; Homer and De
vereaux, pitchers.
The first game of this season will be
played on Wednesday next, and when
the word is given to "play ball" local
fans can make up their minds that the
far will fly from the very first jump.
