Local statesmen soem to be very shy
of accepting positions on tbe poiice com
mission. Why is this? Is there not
plenty of glory about position ?
The San Franoiscans are jubilant
about their Midwinter fair, and the
prospects of profit to their rather de
pleted pockets. But Los Angeles is to
have a railroad to Salt Lake which is a
fair midwinter proposition, and which
will do us more good than a cycle of
continuous expositions. There is no
question now but what the Nevada
Southern railway will be well on to
wards the greet inland sea of Utah be
fore spring.
Judge Van Dyke has put a quibosh
on the junketing business that will cool
the ardor of those public-spirited offi
cials who are willing to sacrifice them
selves by making arduous and extensive
excursions in the interest of the dear
people. Hereafter, if members of the
board of education find it urgent to
make a trip to San Francißco to discover
tbe best method of heating a school
house, they will do so at their own ex
panse. Thie decision is timely. It will
pave the taxpayers a basketful of money.
Had it been in favor of the principle for
which the jolly junketers contend
ed, the fair city librarian's claim
would have held good; and as nearly
one-half of our "school manns" visited
the Chicago exposition during vacation,
we can see nothing that would have
prevented them sending in a valid de
mand for the reimbursement of their
expenses, ou the plea that they visited
the fair to enlarge their views and to
enable them to impart needed instruc
tions to their pupils. Their trip would
have been as much in the public inter
est as the others.
Mr. PiiAKK, president of the Southern
Nevada Railway company, is in the city.
He says that hiß road is going ahead
with groat energy ; that there are only
about ten mileß further of difficult
country to work through, when they
will reach the valley region which ließ
between Vanderhilt and the rich coal
measures of Utah. From where the
road iB now completed to the coal mines
)b a distance of one hundred miles, and
the Southern Nevada company is in
position to put that part of the road
through in tbe most expeditious possi
ble time. The company haa, like all
other enterprises, felt tbe pressure
of the financial bouleversement, but
it has never been retarded a
a dey by it in the prosecution of its
work. It is very cheering to hear this,
and to know that we can now rest as
sured that the great Salt Lake basin
will now be reached by a railroad in
direct connection with Los Angeles.
The vice-president of the road started to
the front yesterday with the intention
of inspecting tbe intervening country
between Vanderbilt and the coal fields.
It is rich in minerals, in soda, in iron,
and extensive deposits of nitrate are
now reported to have been found. Mr.
Scofield will make thorough exploration
of all the natural wealth in the region
named before he returns.
RAILROAD HORRORS THE ORDER OF
THE DAY.
Scarcely a day passes in which a
rightful railroad accident is not an
nounced by the overland dispatches.
Borne of them are unattended by loss of
life, but others, like the Battle Creek
tragedy, are marked by great mortality
and made thrilling by the peculiar and
unspeakable agoniea of the doomed peo
ple. In the latter case the complete
telescoping of two ears was immediately
followed by a blaze which roasted the
poor passengers who had been pinned
in their places by the debris. How
frightful and at the same time pathetic
was tbe story of the poor woman who
had been hauled half way out of a win
dow, bat then was found to be wedged
fast to the car by her lower limbs. The
men who were trying to rescue her were
compelled to leave her to her horrid
fate when the flames burst through the
opening in which she was wedged. She
died a martyr and a Christian in fall
view of the great crowd, who Were com
pelled to witness her last agonies, but
impotent to save her.
Here let us pause and ask why the
triumphs of modern science are not
availed of to prevent the possibility of
a Bcene so appalling? The fire was tbe
result oi using oil lamps in the cars. If
they had been furnished with electric
lamps the fire could not have occurred,
valuable liv?s would haye been saved
in tliis instance, and the accident at
Battle Creek would have been shorn of
half of its terrors.
It is a noticeable fact that nearly all
tbe recent railroad accidents have taken
place on trains going to or coming from
the world's fair, and that they occurred
in a densely settled part of the country.
It is inconceivable that tbe companies
are allowed to operate in such localities
on a single track. If they were com
pelled to double-track their lines there
would be no possibility of collisions,
and the safety of travelers would be
infinitely increased in tbe thickly set
tled states. The Inter-state Commerce
commission conld render a great service
to humanity by securing a general law
that would compel these railway cor
porations to double-track their roads.
They should also insist that in all pas
senger trains tbe electric lamp should
take the place of tbe dangerous oil
lamp. The deadly coal stove should
also be discarded, and all passenger cars
provided witb heating pipes supplied
with steam from tbe locomotives.
There is a great laxity somewhere of
care for human life in the operation of
railroads in the United States. The
statistics chow that between twentvand
thirty thousand train bands are either
killed or maimed every year by the old
coupling method. There has been a
bill before congress for several years to
compel the companies to furnish their
cars with self-adjusting couplers, which
would do away with all risk to the
bands in performing this dangerous
duty. The corporations have had influ
ence enough with congress to stave off
from year to year this humane legisla
tion, so that the work of killing and
maiming goes on. Some ten or a dozen
patent couplers have been invented,
any of which would subßerve tbe pur
pose of coupling the cars without risk
to tbe train hands. Bnt the cupidity of
tbe companies is greater than their hu
manity, and to save the coßt of furnish
ing the cars with one of these inventions
they have successfully lobbied against
the bill that would compel them to
avail themselves of safety automatic
couplers.
It is not to our credit that we permit
human life to be trifled with as it is by
the railroad corporations, and it is a
burning shame that we should permit
the safety of travelers on railways to be
considered for a moment against the
coat to the corporations of supplying
every improvement and invention that
will guard and render more secure the
people who entruet themselves on their
trains.
The Interstate Commission could well
pause in their work of adjusting rates
for a while and take up this more im
portant subject.
GOLD BUT A DROP IN THE BUCKET.
Senator White's views on money, as
I set forth in the interview with him pub
lished yesterday, brings tbe question of
demonetizing Bilver before the public in
quite a striking aspect. He shows that
there ia an indebtedness against the
railroads of this country of $5,000,000,000,
and that four-fifths of this vast sum is
in gold-bearing bonds. There is little
doubt that there has been a Niagara of
water used in the manipulation of this
tremendous indebtedness, but the fact
remains that there is not gold enoi :U in
the world to meet the enormous obliga
tion. Railroad bonds, however, are but
a fraction of the bonded indebtedness
for which the productive industries of
this country stand pledged. Every
state, every county, every city, every
school district is loaded to
the guards with interest-bearing
bonds, and all to be redeemed in gold.
Then there are hundreds, yea, thou
sands, of industrial corporations weighed
down with tbe issue of gold-bearing
bonds. How absurd it would be to look
for the redemption of all these securities
in gold if they were to be met not even
at once, but in a hundred years. The
highest estimate of the world's stock of
gold is placed at $3,750,000,000, and if we
had it all, instead of much less than one
twentieth of it, we could not begin to
pay off even the municipal bond indebt
edness outstanding. In the face of facts
like these, is it not very
acme of folly to cripple our
selves by dismissing silvor from its
function as a measure of the current
wealth of the country ? Now let ub put
it in another way. If we can carry this I
vast indebtedness although with fch» j
LOS ANGELES HERALD, WEDNESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 2.5, 1893.
greatest difficulty, with only one metal
as the basis of values, could we not
bear the burden much more easily with
the two metals underlyingourcurrency?
What we now bend under we would jog
along with with ease, if we had ailver
to assist us in carrying the great load.
It is admitted on all hands that what
the country is suffering from now ia the
inadequacy of circulation. Thescarcity
of money is throttling the enterprise
and industry of the country. Let both
metals perform the benign function they
have so beneficently played since the
dawn of civilization and they wiil
serve as a broad basis for the credit
which tbe government will sooner or
later have to assume in order to furnish
the country with the necessary circula
tion. The credit of the government
thus fortified may be used for the aug
mentation of tbe circulating medium
which is now bo hard to get and ao
urgently required. The artificial con
traction of our basis of credit is a crime
against the human family which no
punishment would be severe enough to
expiate. __________
THE FORESTERS.
A Pleasurable Keeeptlon Given to W. A.
Ryan Last Night.
The members of the Ancient Order of
Foresters of America of this city turned
out en masse yesterday evening to ten*
der a reception to Deputy District At
torney W. A. Ryan, who has just re
turned from attendance upon the meet
ing of the supreme court c onvention as
a representative of the order. The re
ception was given at Foresters' hall on
Main street, and was gracefully presided
over by Henry Altman, C. R., of Court
Olive.
After an address by Mr. Ryan, on the
results of the supreme court convention,
congratulatory speeches were made by
William Meade, P. 8., of Court Los An
geles, John McGainness, D. G. C. R.,
A. Orfila, C. R., and Ralph Dominguez
of Court Columbus. M. Clary, C. R., of
Court Francais, A. Krimminger, R. 8.,
an l H. J. Shoultere, F. S., of Court
Fremont, George Street, R. 8., of Court
Olive, J. Castera of Court Sunset and
others.
The speeches were interspersed with
delightful mußic rendered by the Span
ish orchestra under the leadership of
Prof. Campelane, the accomplished pi
anist of CourtColumbuß. Refreshments
were served at intervals during the mu
sical programme. The large assemblage
was fairly bubbling over with good feel
ing, and the occasion was a most enjoy
able one.
Tbe California delegation to the su
preme court convention was remarkably
successful in securing for this state the
two highest offices in the order, and ob
taining the passage of legislation of great
advantage to the order on the Pacific
coast, and the enthusiastic reception ac
corded the supreme representatives of
the order here shows that their labors
are highly appreciated.
THEATRICAL MATTERS.
Los Angeles Theater —The Span of
Life will commence a three days' en
gagement on Thursday evening. This
will be one of the best attractions of the
kind ever seen here, and chances are
tbat tbe house will be packed. A lead
ing Chicago paper says: The Span o!
Life is replete with action from begin
ning to end; there is enough inci
dent in it to make half a dozen
ordinary plays; its scenic environment
ia elaborate and pleasing to the eye;
there is enough comedy introduced to
allow intervale for the occupants of the
upper tiers to swallow their hearts occa
sionally, when the strain of having them
"in their throats" becomes too severe,
and, finally, the company presenting is
a more than commonly capable one.
The plot of tbe play has already been
given in these columns. Its title is
based upon a scene tbat concludes the
third act, where the heroine, hemmed
in by the destruction of a narrow
bridge over a deep chasm, which had
been her only hope of escape from a
terrible fate at the hands of the villain,
is saved in a novel manner. Three cir
cus acrobats who conveniently happen
to be near by, by linking their bodies
together, perform a fall across the
chasm and form a human bridge, over
which the persecuted woman walks in
safety with her child.
NEW STREET-CAR LINE
To Be Unlit to Boyle Height* Through
Holleubeck Park.
Ex-Mayor Workman and T. D. Hos
kins will build a street railway to be
operated with the Hoskins electro-vapor
motor, to run from the cable road on
First' street, through the Holleubeck
park, past St. Mary's orphanage.
A petition for a street railway fran
chise covering this route was presented
to the council on Monday by ex-Mayor
Workman and T. D. Hoskins. Tbe rails
and ties are already on band and the
road will be built and put in operation
within 30 days of tbe granting of tbe
franchise. This will furnish transpor
tation for the residents, besides being
an attractive route to the beautiful Hol
lenbeck park, with its lake and island,
that will soon be another ol Los Ange
les' resorts. The city has spent several
thousand dollars on the park and lake,
and persons who have not been in that
locality latoly will be very much aston
ished at the transformation that has
taken place.
THE WINDOW SMASHER.
Hetectlvea Auble and Benson Make a
Neat Capture.
"Jack the window-smasher" is the
latest "Jf.k" to gain notoriety here
abouts. He is a smooth crook, who de
vised a new method of working.
He would pass a shop window and
see some object that would suit his
taste. Later in the night he would pats
the window carrying a small bar of iron,
with which he would smash the glass as
quietly bb possible. He would then
pass on, and if not observed would re
turn, put bis hand through the hole,
and grasp the desired object.
Detectives Auble and Benson got on
to the fellow yesterday, after having col
lected good evidence against him, and
ran him in, thus relieving the shop
keepers and plate-glass insurance com
panies from further anxiety.
A Street Car StriUe.
Columbus, 0., Oct. 24.—A strike on
all the Btreet car lines in the city was
precipitated without warning this morn
ing, as the result of the discharge oi two
employees. Police were sent to the car
barns to preserve order, and many of
the old employees returned to work
alter a two hours' tie-up, though two
lisaa are still unmanned.
THOSE NAUGHTY BOYS.
WHAT TO DO WITH THEM PER
PLEXES JUSTICE AUSTIN.
The Reform School Is Crowded and It
la Hardly night to Bend Them to
Jail ac Vagrants—The Caeca
In Point—Minor Matters.
Justice Austin's lot ia at present not a
happy one.
The justice found it a difficult matter
to dispose of the numbers of unem
ployed who were, and still are, dally be
ing brought before him for vagrancy,
but a still more difficult problem has
bees confronting him lately.
During the past three weeks nearly a
score of small boys have at various
times been arrested and taken into hia
court. They were all tramps, and many
of them had come a long distance.
The atate school is full, and even were
it not in that condition, it appears
hardly fair to tax tbe county for the
maintenance of youth from other states.
Yesterday a boy was taken before
him who stated that hia home was in
New Orleans, and that he had tramped
it to California.
He was arrested for jumping on and
off the cars, and was barely 10,
Sitting by hie side was £>. Robinet, a
15-year-old boy who had not yet even
attained the dignity of long pants.
The charge against this promising
specimen was drunkenness, and the ar
resting officer testified tbat he was too
drunk to stand.
The justice continued both cases until
'he could determine what course to pur
sue in regard to them.
Three boys were committed yesterday
to Wbittier by Justi* Austin, but if
many more are brought before him to
deal with tbe justice will have to call a
halt, as the school is already over
crowded.
Then comes the question, What ia to
be done with them ?
To discharge them means sending
them into the company of thieves and
other desperate characters, who would
take but a short time to render their
youthful victims equally aa corrupt as
themselves.
This is why Jnstidt Austin shakes bis
head and Bigbs every time he sees one
of the youthful offenders in the criminal
dock.
MINOR CASES,
A. Failing, the fellow arrested by
Special Officer Boßqui for burglarizing
the room of a guest at the Hollenbeck
hotel, was given a preliminary hearing
yesterday by Justice Austin.
At the conclusion of the evidence he
was held for trial in bonds of 12000.
Oacar Burke, a hard looking citizen,
was arraigned before Justice Austin
yesterday upon a charge of vagrancy,
and refusing to accept work when the
aforesaid employment was offered him.
The charge against Burke was preferred
by his mother, Mrs. Bridget Burke.
Burke denied tbe accusation vigor
ously yesterday, and the case was set
for trial on Thursday.
Mrs. Margaret Scheer, who Jlred a
counle of pistol shots in the air m\ Mon
day evening while under the influence
of liquor, was fined $15 yeßterday by
Justice Austin.
Mrs. Scheer stated that she saw a big
dog wbicb was apparently about to bite
her, and she fired in order to scare the
animal away.
The court placed no reliauce on her
fairy tale and fined her. Mrs. Scheer
then remarked : "Well, I s'pose I got
to get the money; I wouldn't stay in
that jail for something."
THE NICKEL IN THE SLOT.
Many of Theie Apparatuses Now in 25x-
Istenon in This City.
In almost every cigar store, saloon
and hotel can be found one or more of
the "nickel in the slot" machines which
are such a nuisance and sure thing
game throughout the city. Last even
ing a Herald reporter meandered into
the cigar store in the Wilson block,
corner of third and Spring Btreets, where
he found three or four different patterns
of these machines, and for cariosity
tried each one of them with the
same result, of getting Boup. Of all of
them it is alleged that by dropping a
nickel in the slot you get from 1 to 20
cigars or some other kind of a premium,
but the usual result you draw a blunt.
At tbe cigar stand mentioned, last
evening, four men after many consecu
tive attempts failed to draw a prize.
As tbe places where these implements
are located receive a percentage, it is
not likely they are averse to them. It
is a good thing for the owners, but a
great detriment to the public.
SACRIFICE TO THE DEALT.
The Chinese Celebrating; Their Trien
nial festival.
There ia coneideral stir in the chop
etick quarter of the city over the trien
nial sacrifice to the dead Chinese.
The festivities have been in progress
a day or two and will be continued that
much longer.
The almoned-eyed sons of the walled
empire seem to be ia the heyday of
their existence, and their honor
for their dead friends repose
in the weird incantations of a
thousand noisep. AH instruments ol
Chinese originality are brought into
requisitiou during this festival, and it
is not unusual to hear a thousand
sounds from the tom-toms, gongs, cytri;'
bals, and the odd Chinese banjos and
fiddles. This is done to frighten away
the spirits.
Chinatown and its narrow, dimly
lighted streets are gaily decorated in
honor of the sacrificial festivities. The
scene is witnessed by many visitors
both day and night.
AT THE COUNTY JAIL.
Arrests From the Burnt Districts Who
Are Under a Clonrt*
Yesterday was another busy day at
the county jail.
John Thompson arrived from San
Jobb to spend CO days in retireiaent, for
battery; Ed. Johnson, from the same
place, will serve 90 days for disturbing
the peace; Henry Thomas from Santa
Monica stays for 15 dayß upon a convic
tion for petty larceny.
Jim Wo* was arrested by Constable
Rogers and charged with robbery, and
John H. Douglas waa booked for threat
ening to kill.
J. F. Armstrong was booked for Bend

TWO HORSES SHOCKED.
A Live Electric r.iglit Wire Causes Two
Buuawayi.
A live electric wire came near causing
much damage if not loss of life yesterday
on Spring street, near Third.
A ground wire just above the trolley
wires broke and fell across two horses
attached to a wagon of the National Ice
company.
The shock caused tbe team to run.
They sped away at a lightning gait until
tbey reached the corner of First and
Spring, where a stop was put to the
runaway by one of the horses falling.
Another team was also frightened by
the accident, but no damage was done
by either runaway.
It was lucky tbat the wire struck no
person.
What Ho Helped' At.
Tho congressman was telling stories.
"It was on mo once," he said. "I had
a friend who was dry a 9 a humorist, hut
not always dry as a drinker, and when
he was full ho did foolish things. One
of these was to buy a jackass for $600,
and when ho sobered up and knew what
ho had dono he sold him back to the
original seller for $400. Naturally the
loss of $100 made him soro, and he did
not like to be twitted about it. One day
I saw him on a mulo waiting in front of
a store, and I spoke to him. Ho was
just full enough to bo serious.
" 'Hello,' I said, and ho responded with
a nod.
' • 'You aro a judge of that sort of ani
mal you aro riding, aren't you?'
" 'I don't know that I am particularly
so,' ho said earnestly.
" 'I thought you were in the business.'
" 'No, I ain't."
" 'Didn't you buy a jack for $500 not
long ago?'
"Tho crowd that had gathered gig
gled, and ho looked more serious than
ever.
" 'Yes I did,' he answered solemnly.
" 'What did you do with him?" I asked,
with a wink at the crowd to bo ready.
"Ho looked at me solemnly.
"'I helped elect him to congress,'he
said, without a smile, and the howl that
went up made mo seek shelter in the
nearest place that could be found." —

Hainan Imitations of Vegetables.
Referring to tho fact that tho human
head is sometimes facetiously and ir
reverently spoken of as "a cocoanut,"
tho Boston Transcript remarks that sci
entists have recently discovered a re
markable resemblnnco between the shell
of the fruit and the shell of the human
brain. Then it quotes a French scien
tific periodical to provo that thera is a
wonderful likones3 between other hu
man organs and vegetable products.
For example, the meat of the English
walnut is a close copy of tho form and
convolutions of the brain; plums ,and
cherries are like tho eye; almonds are
shaped liko tho nose; the ear is brought
to mind by au opened oyster and shell;
in a mammoth squash the entiro body
may be traced; tho open hand is found
in growing scrub willow and celery, and
the heart is seen in tho German turnip
and tho eggplant.

Everybody is familiar with the music
