This bill wae re-passed by the board and ihe form changed from the one of Dr. 3. T. Pepper, which wan decided against by Judge Van Dyke laßt week. Tbe board will institute mandamus proceed ing?, and intend to appeal the case de cided against them. The superior court judges are wonder fully unanimous in their construction of the law in some cases. Take, for in stance, the junketing bill of the board of education. Judge Van Dyke found no difficulty in throwing that out of court, whilst yesterday Judge Shaw lost no lime in approving the bill of Miss Kelso for her expenses in attending the Columbian fair aB a valid claim. It is now in order for the echoolmarins who afended tbe world's fair in the interest if education to make out their demands 'or the expenses incurred. Tweedledum md tweedh'dee! Los Angblks comes to the front again in the weekly report of clearing-house transactions in tbe principal cities of tbe United States. She ia the only city in the whole list that shows an increaee. With the single exception of v week ago, our city has maintained the unique position in these reports of an increase for the past ten weekß. A showing like thiß is certainly strong evidence of the sound financial condition and the healthy advance in business activity ol tbe commercial capital of Southern California. These reports have figured regularly in every newspaper in the United Stateß, and have undoubtedly attracted wide attention to tho financial stability of Los Angeieß at a time when business affairs were in a state of chaos in all other American cities. Mb. Cleveland i 3 positively develop ing into tbe character of a persistent meddler with the legislative department of the government. He has made it known to congress that he objects to tbe attachment of any amendment what ever to the Chinese registration exten sion bill. This declaration has of course acted like a wet blanket upon some of the weak-kneed senators who favored a provision to photograph the registering coolies so as to secure their identifica tion beyond a doubt. It is now believed that when the bill is passed a test cace will be brought at once before tbe supreme court, and that as that body is now constituted the law wiil be declared unconstitutional. The idea is that Justice Harlan, who wbb absent when the Geary bill was un der consideration before the court, is of tbe opinion that the law is not valid; and that tbe recently appointed Justice Hornblower will reflect Cleveland's j views in opposition to the constitution ality of the exclusion measure. If those who give publicity to these opinions are correct, the great fight against the unre stricted importation of coolies into the United States is at an end, and the floodgates against tbe inundation of Asiatics will be thrown wide open. The outlook is dismal enough, truly. THE CONSPIRACY OF CONTRACTION. There ie not the slightest doubt that tbe financial panic, with its terrible con sequences, waa precipitated by a con spiracy ol tbe bankers o! Wall street for the purpose of forcing tbe single gold standard upon country. The lead ing money changers of New York, by concerted action, closed tbeir vaults against western loans and coerced their correspondents in the west to do the same. Col. K. J. Hinton gave ub the particu lars of several transactions tbat warrant this conclusion. One of these was where a water syndicate in Kanßas had perfected negotiations for a large cum on a Monday, and the money was to be forthcoming on the next day. On going to the bank tbe negotiators were told tbat the deal was off; that the bank had received notice tbat morning tbat no more accommodations were to be ex tended from the leading financial houses in New York to the western borrowers. We now see that the organs of Wall street are piping lively tunes about the good effects of the outlook for the repeal of the Sherman act. They say that bus iness will at once revive and that many of the closed down mills and factories will reopen as soon as the measure is passed. How is this sudden revival to take place unless it is true that the crisis was artificially brought about by the Wall street financiers aud their allies, who stooped the wheels of in dustry by simply locking their vaults and keeping the money they had drawn into them from circulation? Having accomplished their shameful purpose, they are now willing to take their bands from the throat of tho nation and let its life-blood again circulate freely. But the people of the United States have in the meantime received an object lesson which tbey will not soon forget. They have learned that the fate of every enterprise and of all industries is in the hands of a few conscienceless men who can, at will, make times pros perous or the reverse. They have learned tbat there is not 2 per cent of gold available iv tbe country to meet tbe outstanding obligations redeemable in that metal, and yet tbat tbe clique who control tbe gold ate determined to weaken the debtor class by demonetiz ing silver, which would at least give the latter a better chance to meet their debt-. Tbey can plainly see that the game of the gold-bugs is to depreciate all values and take advantage of the distress they have brought about by adding to their already enormous ac cumulations. Sir Giles Overreach, in Massinger's play of A New Way to Pay Old Debts, was actuated by the very policy which Wall street has developed in its attack upon silver. When, through the tin scruptilous agency of his man Marrall, ha bad undermined the fortunes of all his neighbors, and by usury got posses sion of the great bulk oi the ready money they had, he sends out bis jickai to buy up their estates at a greatly de preciated value. "I must have ail sellers and 1 the only purchaser," says this wily and unscrupulous forerunner of the Wall street conspirators, who, having knocked all values on the head, are now ready tobbur3 r them up for a song. But a country like this and a people of the intelligence of the Americans cannot be made battledores of these ex pert players at shuttlecock. They will block the game of ruin which the gold bugs have so successfully played thus far. They will see tbat the govern ment, which is a creature of their creation and control, shall net be made to dance to the piping of a coterie of money sharks. They wiil stiy to them, if you have been able by contraction to bring the industry and enterprise of the nation to grief, we enall take that power from your hands. You have made it plain how the control ol about two per cent of the metal wealth of the nation has enabled you to dominate the business of the country, and to let it progress or stand still at your will by ' the pressure of a button. There shall be no more of this. If, even with the two precious metals exercising their legitimate functions side by side, there is only a basis of credit which is ridicu lously Bmall in view of the mountain of obligations in the shape of bonds and securities that is built up on them, we shall supplement this basis of credit with one that will be universally recog nized as sound. You have controlled the puree to our sorrow. We shall now control it to our great joy and permanent relief. The circulation of this country we shall increase until it is sutlicient for all the legitimate wants of trade, in dustry and development. That circula tion will be based on tne broad basis of the credit of the nation, and it will be of eucb a volume and co distributed that no clique ot usurers can control it. The people of thiß country have never yet had to meet a crisiß, financial or political, which they have not been able to overcome; and the present crisis, the result of a hearties and sordid conspir acy on the part of a handful of unscrup ulous plutocrats, they will know how to handle. Had the conspirators not so plainly shown their hand they might for a time have continued their three-card monte game. But now that the people have seen the trick and detected the mark on the cards, the jig is up. A free people, with free ballots to elect a free government will find a permanent and effective remedy for the evil the Wall Btrset gamblers have brought about. THE MUSIC OF THE SCHOOLS. A great deal of good-natured pleas antry has been thrust at tbe school directors about engaging a special teacher to give tbe juvenile classes exer-1 LOS ANGELES HERALD. SUNDAY MORN IMG, OCTOBER 2*9, 1893. cises in vocal music. Last year an in - finite amount of mirth was provoked by the infantile and ridiculous paraphrase? that had been invented by tbe music teacher upon well known nursery ditties. ; Indeed, when that marvelous stroke of j genius was exhibited of changing the familiar lines of "Twinkle, twinkle, little star," to the beautifal couplet of "Twinkle, twinkle, little bat, How I wonder what you're at." A universal roar went up from all quarters. We do not know whether the present regime ie pursuing the same method of vocal instruction as that of last year. But we submit that if the children are to be taught to sing rigma role ditties the art might be put to a more practical use. As a large propor tion of the pnpila will in the course of time become interested in fruit culture we would suggest the propriety of put tine the technical names of the great variety of enemies of the fruit pests to come simple and easy music. If this were successfully accomplished the or chardistß of the future would have these difficult names so impressed on the memory that they would come "trip pingly off on tbe tongue," and the vocal lessons would be of great practical ser vice to the scholars. How would a few little rhymes like the following go if set to music? Oh, veda'ia cardlnalls. And rhizobius ventralis, Vvßen you show your insect malice To the troubling hateful tcalas. Wipe 'emout. And again: For the orcus numerals And the gorging arcatalii Aud the rhlzobus dorsalis Before they tlnally corral us, Let as shout! We humbly submit to tbe august body that rules over the educational department that it would greatly add to the practical tuition of the pupils and originate a pleasant diversion in the music of the schools if they would en gage either the ingenious poet of the Kxpress or the soaring songster of the Times to versify the parasitic nomen clature of tbe enemies of tbe fruit pests, and adapt tbe lines to the simple tunes warbled by tbe classes. Judge Austin has had before him in the last few days boys all the way from 9 to 15 years of age on the cbsrge of be ing vagrant tramps. These boys beat tbeir way here on the cars from all parts of the union. They cannot be sent to the Whittier school, for that reformato ry is filled to overflowing, and it would not be fair to the taxpayers of this county and state to make them bear the charge of supporting these alien juven iles. To send them back to the life they have chosen, is to make certain criminals of them. What to do with these lost waifs is a moat perplexing problem, and we are not astonished that the judge is greatly exercised over it. The United States is building up a great navy and will require a vast num ber of sailors to man the new shipß. Why would it not be well for the gov ernment to place several training ships for boya on this coast? That would eolve thia perplexing problem. It has been developed, in the course of the trial of Evana for the Tovey mur der, that the detectives andofficera have resorted to the most outrageous means to extort a confession from the prisoner. A constable testifies that he bad Blips printed to reßemblo the cuttings from newspapers giving falsa and misleading reports ef the declarations of witnesses Evanß depended upon to prove an alibi, and that whisky, opium and other drugs were administered to the unfortunate man to lurtber weaken an intellect which was not bright at -its best. They laid ail sorts of snares to entrap him into admiasions, and passed bogus letters into bim to lead him into making a con fession upon which they could convict him of the horrible crime. If Evans has been made the victim of such shameful practices, he is to be pitied, and the of ficers of the law who resorted to them ought to be pilloried. The cold-blooded assassination of Mayor Carter H. Harrison of Chicago by it crank, last night, is a crime tbat will be deeply deplored, not only in his own city, but throughout tbe entire country and in many foreign lands. Few men enjoyed so wide an acquaintance, or were held in higher esteem by those who knew him, aa the accomplished gentleman who was five times elected mayor of one of tho greatest cities on earth, and filled many other places of trust and honor. 1 Tut: water supply committee expected yeßterday to recommend to the council Monday that the price to be offered to Schafer and Pierce for the City Water company's plant be placed at J2,500,000. Ibis will bring the whole question up ;u debatable shape. GREEN CAUGHT HIM. A Glaaa Smasher Captured br a Harris Fatroluiau.

Chicago, Oct. 28.—"Y0 Tambien winsl" and a howl of joy went up from 10,000 throats at Hawthorne today as the magnificent mare went under the wire in an one and one-eighth mile race, with Lamplighter something less than a block behind when the time keepers snapped at 2 :l > l' t . The great triangular race between tbe two horses named and Clifford had been postponed, as the tatter's owqar thought the track too alow for his colt. The postponemsnt was far from pleasing to the people who had gone to the track to Bee this particular race, and it waa Anally decided to let Yo Tambien and Lamplighter go one and an eighth miles at the fourth race on tbe card, for a purse of $2500 and entrance fees of $1000 each. Lamplighter had many hearty sup porters, but tbey were in the minority. Betting on Yo Tambien was 7 to 10, while Lamplighter was readily taken at even money. Shortly after 3:30, Lamplighter, with Fred Taral, 119 pounds up, came past tbe grand stand and was greeted with rousing cheers. A moment later a roar of applause greeted Yo Tambien, under Sammy Doggett at the same weight. Promptly at 3:30 the red flag went down and the two great runners j started. As they flashed past the grand | stand Yo Tambien wae half a length : ahead, and staid there all the way I around. At the half Lamplighter got nearer the leader, but the latter sained more tban she had lost in the stretch. As Yo Tambien neared tbe wire she drew farther and farther away from tbe eastern crack, until at the finish there was fully three lengths between the two horses. _ • RUNNING AT NASHVILLE.

A DANGEKOCN ORGANIZATION. The Am«ric«in Protective Association in Need of Investigation. Washington, Oct. 28. —Representative Weadock of Michigan, who yesterday of fered a resolution for an investigation into tbe methods of the American Pro tective association, an anti-Catholic or ganizatiob wbich has been making its power felt in politics in Ohio, Michigan, i Western New York, Illinois and Wiscon ! sin, upsetting political calculations in a 1 most surprising way, says tbat in Mich igan, at least, it is dominated by Cana dian Orangemen of tbe most ignorant class. It is particularly strong in tbe cities. He says it resembled the old Knownothing movement, except that I instead of being directed against all for eigners, it is directed against Catholics. It has issued alarming circulars as to tbe aims of tbe Catholic church in this .country, declaring, among other things, that it is the intention of tbe Catholics to rise and slaughter their Protestant j neighbors. These circulars have caused a reign of terror, and the members of the ; organization are arming themselves to ! repel the invasion of tbe pope. If an in vestigation is ordered it is expected that some astonishing revelations will be made concerning this new political or | ganization. SMI. I. ON TUB BOCKS.

San Francisco, Oct. 28.—The City of New York, which struck on the rockß while passing out of the Golden Gate Thursday night, is, as far as can ho ; known, resting easily upon the spur | wbich penetrated her hottom. The sea is comparatively smooth, but tbe tide, which runs rapidly about her, renders the work of the divers in, tbeir attempts ; to ascertain tbe amount of damage done to the ship, difficult. It is thought, j however, that, should the attempt to I pull her olf tomorrow prove successful, j tbe damaged sustained can be repaired. [ The woik of lightening her cargo is now nearly completed. Tugs are making . regular trips to the wreck, carrying j pumping machinery and wrecking de i vices, which will all be brought into j play at high tide tomorrow, when the ; final effort will be made to rescue the j ship from her perilous position.
