SANTA ANA.
Lively Proceeding* of the Supervisors.
Motet.
Santa Ana, Oct. 30.—The board of
supervisors were in session today, and
a great portion of the time was spent
talking over tbe river improvements
that are in progress.
W. H, Spurgeon was before the board
and asksd tbat more adequate protec
tion be given the grade on Fifth street,
west oi the river.
Doctor Head also thought that tbe
"grade should be better protected, as the
grade was the road that connected Gar
den Grove and Westminster with Santa
Ana, and that the grade that joins on to
the bridge is liable to be carried away
by the first high water.
Mr. Finley thought that a wooden
bnlkhead could be put ln tbat would
render the necessary protection, pro
vided it was of sufficient height.
Mr. Spurgeon thought that such a
bulkhead could be constructed for
about $700.
11. H. Roper favored: putting in a
bulkhead close to the river.
SPIRITED TALK.
At this point Mr. Armor joined in the
discussion. He said that he bad never
bad any sectional feelings in this mat
ter ; that there bad already been $2500
spent on that grade, and that be had
never raised an objection ; but in this
matter he had been of the opinion that
the work should be supervised by one
man, and tbat tbe supervision bad
been delegated to Surveyor Finley. At
this point he did not think it the proper
thing to do to take the work out of Mr.
Flnley's hands aud spend the money/ in
little driblets here and there.
Hawkins appeared to think this an
attack on himself, and in bis defense
said he did not want to control the »n
--tire work on the river, but that he did
want to control tbat being done in his
district, as he thought he knew more
about it than Mr. Finley, having done
considerable "monkeying" on the river
at that point.
Surveyor Finley said that he had been
abused a great deal since he had begun
on tbe river improvement, and that Mr.
Hawkins bad appeared to take a delight
in bringing people to where the work
was being done, and had told all sorts of
stories about the changes in the river
bed, and would say to tbem tbat had he
known tbat he would not have bad con
trol of the work that he would not have
voted a single cent appropriation. He
wanted the levee built close to the river
bank. Mr. Finley said that he wonld
act in the matter as tbe board might in
struct him, bnt while acting on his own
responsibility he would follow his
original plans.
Armor moved that the surveyor be in
structed to use extra precaution ia the
work west of tbe Fifth-street bridge,
without interfering with bis original
plans. An amendment was offered by
Hawkins, bnt it wes lost, and tha or
iginal motion was carried.
The Newport Wharf and Lumber com
pany have secured the contract for the
lumber that is to be used in the exten
sion of tbe San Bernardino insane asy
lum, which amounts to several thou
sand feet. The same company have

The contract amounts to about $37,000,

Comest Thou?
As previously announced, the subject
of Rev. F. M. Dowling, in the pulpit of

RIVERSIDE.
The Defunct Bank and Ite Director,'
Proceeding!— Notes.
Rivbbside, Oct. 30.—The depositors in
the defnnct Riverside Banking company
are becoming more and more dissatisfied
each day. The directors are doing some
very fine flnanceering of late. A few
days ago tbey had a suit dismissed in
tbe superior court after signing a note
for $35,630 and giving a mortgage on
tbeir property on Main and Ninth
streets, two pieces of property in San
Bernardino and two in West Redlands.
The document was executed at a meet
ing of the directors held October 23,
1803. They have also deeded a piece of
property to Ad S. Alkire, to cover hia
deposits of $1400 for which be entered
suit in the superior court. He is in
great luck, but just how the remaining
depositors relish tbis style of preference
it is hard to say.
There are rumors floating around the
city that several more suits will be in
stituted in tbe near future for the pur
pose of bringing tbe affairs of this col
lapsed institution to some conclusion.
Many of the depositors have signed the
contract which allows the bank four
years in which to pay their deposits.

THE WOMAN IN THE CASE.
Times When the Quiet bnt Effective Fem
inine lultuence Is Ignored.
In an article commenting on the si
lence ot history about Mrs. Christopher
Columbus and her influence over the
great explorer and his perseverance,
Mary M. Ward, in the Boston Woman's
Journal, says:
Our aaasoulino friends — husbands,
brothers and fathers—are very ready to
say, when there transpires an occurrence
of questionable character, when lives are
taken, or when fortunes and battles are
lo3t, '"You may depend upon it, there
was a woman at the bottom of all the
mischief." But when anything impor
tant ia done, as when the light of some
new and wonderful discovery dawns up
on the world, behold there is no hint of
feminine help or influence in the matter.
Tho effects nrrnlnred b y climate state
of society, political condition, what not,
are all taken into account—nothing is
forgotten save alone tho quiet influence
of the ono little woman at home, who
may have been the mightiest impelling
power after all. It is only another one
of the innumerable instances where "we
killed the bear." except in this case his
torians have seldom had the grace to
give the pronoun the plural number.
It reminds mo forcibly of a story told
by a clergyman of my acquaintance,
whose sermons aro always practical and
to tho point. A gentleman having be
come interested in a small man of busi
ness availed himself of an elder's privi
lege—the right to ask leading questions.
"And how long hare fou been at
work, my boy?"
"Oh, it's us much as a month now."
"And how do you like your work?
Don't you find it pretty hard to start out
so early in tlio morning?"
"Well, yes, it was pretty hard at
first," tho bof admitted, "but then you
sco father has to leave the house by C
o'clock, and mother is up by half past 4
to get the fires going and to get father's
breakfast. Who calls father at a quarter
past 5, and then by the time he is ready
to go she calls me, aud wliilo I am eating
my breakfast she calls tho girls and puts
up my lunch.
"No, the girls don't get up to help be
cause they both work hard at the store
from 7 o'clock till supper time, so mother
lets them get all the rest they can.
"Yes," hecontinued, "father works for
Mr. Benton in the mill, aud I work for
Mr. Sharp, and the girls work for Mr.
Ellsworth down at the store. We're get-\
ting alom\first rate now."
"And wuom does mother work for?"
cams tlio nest question unexpectedly.
"Mother,'\e hesitated, "mother—why
mother don't Work for anybody—she's
just mother." \
Four Dollars a Week.
"I cannot afford to take even a car
ride," said ono working Kirl when asked
where she intended to spend her holiday.
Further inquiries elicited tho facts that
sho was paying rent, feeding and cloth
ing herself and meeting incidental ex
penses on the magnificent income of
$4.08 a week! There must have been
money stringency in that quarter some
times.
It would be au interesting study to go
into tho details of such a case and dwell
on tho provision for sickness and slack
seasons, when even such re-jiuuorative
Labor was not to be had. And yet that
girl, who would not indulge herself by
tho outlay of even 5 cents, gave $1 in
charity where the need was greater than
her own.—Donahoe's Magazine.
LETTER BAG.
[The Herald under thia heeding prints eom
municatiouK, but does not assume responsi
bility for the sentiments expressed.)
More About the Australian Bugs,
Editors Herald: Ia your issue of
today you bave published an account
of an interview with A. S. Chapman
and a letter from Albert Koebele, which
is an excellent illustration of how dis
torted a man's vision or intellect may
become.
The world may excuse some men of
ignorance, as the foundation of knowl
edge in some cases require to be laid
Boine generations back, but it will never
excuse such insinuations as the article
in tbis morning paper conveys.
Mr. Chapman Bays Professor Ccquil
lett informed him that be never re
ceived any of the phigobius. I expect
Mr. Chapman misunderstood or mis
quoted what was said, as everyone knew,
and this paper, 1 believe, published the
fact that they had been received, and
Mr. Koebele's lelter revealß in what
condition they came and why they were
returned. As Mr. Chapman may not
understand why they were put in alco
hol, I may inform him it was because
they were dead ou arrival.
If Prof. Coquiliett dosed these insects
as you insinuate, was it likely tbat he
would have Bent them thus to A. Koe
bele? Does the murderer preserve the
bodies of his victims and Bend them to
tho police station ?
Now, as to that Sbalpochares moth,
does Prof. Coquiliett not tell truthfully
what he did with it? True, he does not
tell the reason why because he is writ
ing to an entomologist, who did not re
quired to be told, but as Mr. Chapman
is not quite within the pale he shall be
enlightened.
You will obeerve, Mr. Chapman, tbat
tbe professor found that Koebele's moth
belonged to two species and the best
thing to do was naturally to test the
larvie produced; on testing, as be in
forms you, the Hhalpochareß larve were
were found to be of little use and ao
were destroyed, (at least I presume so).
This is what is done by every
thoughtful entomologist, as one might
in liberating unknown insects introduce
a pest which might rival the Uipey
moth in liberated by an experimenting
naturalist about 15 years ago, and now
the Btate of Massachusetts is devastated
in a manner that threatens to exter
minate many of its shrubs and trees.
The state has passed a law to compel
its destruction, and laat year spent $25,
--000 in fighting it,
Tbat is one of many scores of exam
ples which might have been adduced to
support Prof. Coouillet's action.
What proof is there in assuming that
Ibesa moths would at tbat time have
bred, even if useful? Lelong himself
failed to breed tbem. Dr. Havwards of
Alameda reported that he never saw
troce of them in any stage. Mr. Cooper
and Dr. Sidebottiom failed at Santa Bar
bara, and of the few bred and liberated
by Coquiliett here, where are they and
what have they done ?
I am sorry, dear editor, to occupy bo
much of your epace, but when anyone
presuming to be a man makes such
childish insinuations relating to tbe in
tegrity of such a conscientious servant
of the state ono haa to reßort to primary
methods to enlighten him. Next!

Modern Hotels.
Editors Herald: A home perhaps
means more in America than anywhere
else in the world. American literature
abounds with praise oi it. The home
less lyrist who wrote its best song had
bis remains brought to his native land
amid national and imposing honors.
But the great modern caravansary is
fast supplanting the American home.
In the concluding verse of Shenstone's
ode written at an inn he says:
Whoe'er has traveled life's dull round,
Whats'erhls stages niav have been,
May sltth fi think be still has found
The warmest welcome at an inn.
Here the wayfarer could, if he wished,
form acquaintance with his host and
fellow-sojourners. They could even form
friendships, heightened by tbe pleasure
derived from agreeable company and
new scenes, in good fare provided, call
ing for as little thought or exertion as
did the gathering of the manna which
of old the heavens rained down plen
teously upon a favored people.
Scott, at the beginning of one of his
chapters, brings back the old inn to us
in a stanza:
To every guest the appropriate speech was
mane,
And every duty with distinction paid,
Respectful, easy, pleasant or polite,
Your honor's servant, Mr. Smith. Good night.
George Stephenson almost banished
the inn from the civilized world, and
gave us in its Btead the great modern
hotel. Its existence was not warranted
until the locometive, making travel
quick and cheap, provided the large
number of travelers necessary to fill
great hotels. Before railway days the
highways, like the narrow ways of wis
dom, showed here aud there a traveler,
and for these the inn waß ample.
In our time the exigencies of the ex
treme and variable climate have con
tributed to make the American hotels
the best and moßt splendid in the world.
Whoever would Bee this hotel, as far as
architecture goeß, in its utmoßt devel
opment, must vißit St. Augustine, Fla.,
and inspect the palatial hotels known
aB tbe Flagler group. To describe them
would be impracticable, 'lhey repre-
Eent the beet school of Spanish art, and
instead of being a copy of any existing
examples, are the reeultof conscientious
study of principles that have made
famous the cathedrals, universities and
paiaces of Spain.
More than one hundred thousand
tourists registered at those hotels last
winter. Many of whom throughtneces
sity will come to Loa Angelea this win
ter. They will find the great modern
hotel ie missing here, and those in use
will compare very favorably with the inn j

of our grandfathers' days. It behooves
the people of Los Angeles to improve
their hotel system, and adopt the mod

in the Mediterranean and Florida resorts
agree that Los Angeles is the most
favored, and, with improved sanitation,
will become the leading sanitarium of
America. M. J. Hallauan.
Cost of the Schools.
Editors Hkrm.d: ln view of the
fact that a number of demagogues are
howiing in their usual key ahout the
alleged waste of niouey in support of
public schools, aud stating with their
usual recklessness that the greater part
of our taxes go to the support of said
schools, it would be well for honest peo
ple to take a glance at the different
items of expense paid out of the city
fund:
Street department, $132,0011; city
engineer, $20,820; police department,
$74,011; Btreet sprinkling, $30,290; elec
tric lighting, $45,401); tire department,
1100,220; park fund, $75,000; outfall
Bewer, $3115,000; internal sewer, $34,030.
The total expenditures for the year
ending July 31, 1893, were $1,098,899.31,
and all the board of education asks
from the beggardly city council is $132,
--039, or $33 more than was given to the
street department, or a little more than
was given to the fire department, police
department or park commission.
Strange spectacle! I.os Angeles, the
intellectual city of tiie west, must pay
more for a pathway for the feet of horses
than for the education of its 13,000
children. It must squander almost as
much on its alleged paike as for knowl
edge.
The fire department is necessary, but
is it neceßeary to pay as much to put out
fires as to educate ail tbe young people
of tiie city.
Think of paying almost as much for
the few policemen we have to hunt for
as for all our common schools!
But 15 per cent of the city taxes goes
to support common schools and tbe
touchers thereof, and 99 per cent of the
howling of the wolfish demagogues is di
rected to that pitiful fund.
Truly the way of the teacher will be
made as hard aa the "way of the trans
gieesor" if the demagogue and his newß
paper can but have their way ; and what
uae have tbey for the public school
which ia a menace to them and their ilk.
