A Financial Review of the

by Dun'a Review.
There has been a very satisfactory im
provement in the prevailing tone of
financial circles during the past week ;
not that it amounts to enthusiasm or
anything like it, yet it is the fact that
money is beginning to flow in this
direction and our banks have not had
to ship coin to cover exchanges daring
the week. The demand for money in
unusually greater at this time of year
on account of taxes falling due, but the
pressure to meet these payments does
not seem to be characterized by any
thing abnormal and there is no likeli
hood of tbe delinquent list being any
larger than its ordinary size.
The foregoing is one among several
facta which indicate to an attentive ob
server that in epite of all the talk about

depression and failures. Lob Angeles is
in a very healthy condition financially.
Owners are in many inatancee very
anxious to ceil their property, but are
not disposed to accept any price that
maybe offered, and when a genuine sac
rifice has to be made there is always
some one ready to take care of it. in a
recent forced sale of a large dry goods
stock at retail it is stated that the cash
receipts thus far have exceeded $55 000,
which, if true, would indicate that there
U plenty of "loobo change" forthcoming
just aa coon as a sufficient inducement is
offered. Naturally, the other dry goods
merchants have suffered to some extent
while this rush has lasted, and com
plaints have been beard that their ens
tnmerß have been unuaually slow this
month.
As soon as the savings banks get into
the position where they can make loans
again as in the ordinary course of busi
ness, tbe only remaining hindrance of
any great proportions to the restoration
of confidence will be removed. Thia re
sult cannot be expected before the open
ing of the coming year, and in the
meantime a great deal of money that
might he doing good if kept in circula
tion is locked up. There is no necessity
whatever for taking a pessimistic view
of the situation on thia account, and
the tendency to do so in certain journal
istic quarters has been much deprecated
among busineaa men. The money is
here and will he forthcoming when
called for. But if the people who draw
it out expect to realize a high rate of in
terest In us use they are likely to find
themselves badly mistaken. This, of
conrpH, is a matter of supply and de
maud, but it. is to be boped that the
days oi high interest in Los Angeles
have gone, forever by. Time was, and
net en great a number of years ago, that
business men paid 24 per cent per an

One of tho most satisfactory indica
tion of l.os Angeloa prosperity ia the
way in which building operations have
been continued throughout the seaeon,
and there appearß to be no let up to this
activity. One very annoying feature in
the building interest, namely, the
plumbing ordinance, is doomed by the
council, and a hew measure will he
adopted in its place. The attempt to
regulate by proper ruleaand supervision
a branch of work so important to the
health of the community is greatly to
be commended. The plumbing done in
most of the buildings erected during the
boom waß scandalously dafecttve, and
the necessity for supervision has been
long apoarent. While none but compe
tent men Bhould be allowed to work at
this trade,-it should not, on tbe other
hand, be so hampered by restrictions a3
to throw the property owner into the
clutches of a ring or monopoly. Some
of the provisions of the objectionable
ordinance are needleßsly severe, entail
ing in many cases enormous and useless
outlay to the lose of the owner and the
benefit of the plumber. Io tho light of
experience there should be no difficulty
in framing a new ordinance to meet tbe
viewß of all parties and to assist in the
preservation of the public health.

Among the semi-public buildings
now in course of erection on Main
street are tbe Turner's ball and the
Burbank theater. Tbe former is now
well under way and a visit to the latter
edifice last week revealed an unex
pected forwardness in the arrange
ments. The finishing of the interior is
now in tbe hands of tbe carpenters,
while tbe stage is full of scenery just
BOwly painted, and everything looks as
it the Pavements of Paris or Shadows of
■> Great City, or whatever may be the
opening piece, might be put upon the
hoards in the very near future. The
house ia constructed for the comfort of
that class of pßtrons who don't care to
pay high or even the so-called "popular"
prices. Above the eer.ts on tbe (loor
risea one immense gallery, every seat in
which commands a good view id the
largest stage in Southern California.
Two thousand people may he accommo
dated in the auditorium, and when
completed end running with its etock
company the homo should, if properly
managed, be a good paying investment.
THK KABTKHN SITUATION.
The latest ieeueof Dun's Review from
New York was printed just before the
repeal bill was passed. The editorial
summary contains much matter of gen
eral interest and is subjoined :
Port is in sight after a long and stormy
Voyage, and the proapect of a speedy
end of the struggle over repeal has
brought bright hopes to business. Stocks
climbed rapidly for three days, banks
relaxed restraints, commercial loans are
more freely nought and made, and re
ports from all quarters show the preva
lence of more hopeful feeling. Tbie of
itself tinda to produce some revival of
consumption and of industry, which,
neverthelese, haß mnde hut moderate
progress as yet. It ia still too coon to
expects much effect in trade and manu
factures, mid though monetary obstacles
are to a large extent removed, there still
remain other legislative questions which
create uncertainty. Opinion alßo differs
as to the extent of improvement now to
be expected after so much doubt and de
lay and loaa. But the clearings. outside
New York this week are not quite 20por
cent, lees than laßt year.
The anticipation of repeal, and tbe
happy union of Vanderbilt, Jersey Cen
tral and Lackawanna interests, gave the
stock market three happy ditvo, in which
atocKS rO%e an average of $2.50 per share
and triint stocks $3 50 per share, and
tbe sales for the week huvo been 2.250,
--000 ehe.res. But on Thursday there
came a pause. Traders were taking
profits, of course, but a more important
fact waa that London emptied about
$0,500,000 worth of stocks on tho market
rapidly. This indicated leas conlidence
on that side Ulan had been anticipated
in the recuperative virtue of assured
legislation, end coming so toon after the
Vanderbilt purchase, suggested whether
its effects tipon trunk lino and coal-car
rying roads, though obviously encourag
ing, had been in all respects appre
hended. This selling raised the rate of
exchange in the face of the announce
ment tiiat $510,000 gold had been
shipped hither the same day fiom Lon
don, an operation which might have
paid hotter in prices obtained for Biocka
than in any other way. A fact of real
encouragement is that railway earnings
for the third week of October show in
crease of 3 per cent over last year, the
first increase for a long time. Notwith
standing the large sales, the market con
tinued nnuEtially strong. In other spec
ulative markets, in spite of monetary
comfort and bright proapecto, trains
realised were small. Wheat rose 2
cents, although Atlantic exports fell to
1,100,000 bushels for the week against
1,900,00 V bushels last year, in part be
cause western receipts were but 5 803,
--000 buehois against 8.000,000 last year.
But corn declined an eighth wit'a better
reports of yield, coffee declined three
sixteenths, pork products made only
alight gains, and cotton fell a quarter,
receipts being 60,000 bales greater than
last year.
As yet t here is seen only a continuance
of the faint anil slow inereaae in distri
bution ot products which haa been no
ticed for some weeks. Nor does even
this gradual revival in demand extend
to all branches. Most of the increaeo
yet Been in cotton and shoe manufacture
may be explained by mere exhaustion
iv stocks of dealers, as frequent requests
for immediate delivery show, but there
ia also reported by dealers a somewhat
better demand from consumers, aud four
more cotton mills have started and
eeven increased force, against seven
stopping or decreasing. A similar de
mand has increased by six the number
of hosiery and knit goods works in op
eration. The shipments of shoes from
the ee.Bt in foiir weeks of October are 28
per cent leas than last year, against 82
per cent in September. But, against
eight comparatively amall woolen mills
starting, live have Btoppod, including
one one of 3000 and another oi 1000
bands. There is little eign of increase
in the demand for goods; the recent de
mand for medium worsteda haa Bub-
Bided, and clothiers are doing hardly
more than enough to prepare samples.
The total sales of wool at three chief
markets, including several million
pounds believed to be for speculation,
have been 9,207,152 pounds in three
weeks, against 21,075,000 pounds last
year.
The New York banks still accumulate
money, and commercial loans are more
largely asked and obtained. This en
ables merchants to take goods out of
bond, and may increase custom receipts,
which have amounted in 25 days oi
October to $10,208,091, against $16,360,
--559 for the lull month last year. Ap
parently the month's decrease will be
about 25 tier cent. luternal revenue
has been better maintained, in the same
time $11,052,528 against $14,i.52,891 lor
the full month last year. The treasury
gold fell to nearly $81,700,000, but has
since riaen more than a million, pension
payments decreasing.
LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 5, 1893.
The number and magnitude of failures
decreased less than hud been expected,
tbe liabilities in three weeka of October
amounting to $15,072,020, against about
$7,000,000 for the same weeks last year.
This week there have been 352 failures
in the United States against 187 last
year, and 44 in Canada againßt 20 last
year. Including one bank, and two
western failures for a million or more,
there were 05 of liabilities exceeding
?5000 each.
BACK AGAIN..
Tlie Chine** Return to Cahnenca Valley
and Trouble la feared.
Yesterday morning the Chinamen
who were driven from Cabuenga valley
one week ago last Friday night by tbe
farmers of that vicinity returned to
their vegetable farms, and will, unless
again molested, continue to raise
"stling beans," etc., much to the dis
gust of their white neighbors.
It will be remembered that these
Chinamen were waited on by a masked
mob of about 75 armed men at mid
night and invited to leave the valley,
which they did. It is feared that fur
ther trouble may follow, as the farmerß
are determined to rid the valley of the
Chinese entirely.
A well-known resident of Cahuenga
stated yesterday that they would have
accomplished their purpose long ago if
it were not for the non-resident land
owners, who refuse to lease their prop
erty to white men instead of Chinamen.

TO RELIEVE THE CITY'S POOR.
The Associated Charities Get
ting: to Work.
A Meeting of the Executive Com
mittee Held Yesterday.
Plan and Work Outlined Tor tho Chari
table Institution —A More In
the Right Ulrec- -
tlon.
A meeting of the executive committee
of the proposed ABBOciated Charities
waa heid yesterday afternoon.
,An outline of tbe plan of work was
formulated, and a constitution and by
laws discussed.
The plan provides for a Bystem of
registration, for recording, at a central
office, information in regard to ali per
sons aided, and the assistance given by
all public and private charities, and. as
far as poeaible, by individuals.
Tbe information thus obtained ehall
be communicated to other persons, but
only for tbe benefit ol the pereonß regis
tered, end to aid in detecting the un
deserving.
The record thus obtained shall be
made and kept by the secretary, and its
contents shall be seen only by him or
his clerks, except as provided {or under
the constitution or by-laws.
The plan describes the cases worthy
of permanent relief as follows: Orphans
with no parents, or only one pareut, un
able to support them; aged persons who
are uuable to support themselves; in
curable sick, crippled or deformed.
Temporary relief will be given in case
of illness or accident where relief mny
carry a famiiy over a hard time and pre
vent their falling into pauperism.
Tbe cases needing work and to be re
lieved only wheu work cannot be had
are classified as follows : Persons out of
work, but able and willing to work if it
can ba found; persons with insufficient
work, able and willing to do more;
widows with young children, ready to
do any kind of work consistent with
family cares; tbe shiftless, who are dis
posed to shirk work, but who may be
iuduced by patient persuasion and in
fluence of visitor to become industrious;
the improvident, who may be taught
thrift and foresight by the same means,
and the intemperate, who are not yet
hopelessly bo, and may be reformed by
earneßt and devoted endeavor and a
hope of work contingent on gofcd con
duct.
The cases unworthy of relief are:
Those who have property ; families with
able-bodied parents, tjnti to support
them, or with able-bodiod children able
to support them; the' shiftless, who are
too idle to work, and who steadily refuce
it when offered ; the impiovident who
equander their mesne, earning good
wages in some months and willing to
beg in other months, and who are
persistent in refusing to improve; the
vicious, who drink orgamble away their
meane, and who are found hopelessly
bad after attempts to reform; con
firmed paupers, who prefer to live on
alms; tramps, living worthless lives,
and too often thieves. For the first
class, a friend should be found for each
case, to relieve necessities and provide
suitable assistance.
To the second claps, the conference
will cc.id a visitor, whose business shall
be to raise these persons into self-sup
port. To the third claee, the conference
will employ repressive measures, and
engage the service of such visitora as
can stimulate better ways of life.
A meeting to adopt the conetitution
and by-lawsjwill be beld in l'ythian hail,
118)2 South Spring street, next Tuesday
at 2p. m. Officers and directors will be
elected, and the corporation iormed as
Boon thereafter as possible.
MAIER & ZOBELIEN BEER.
This Excellent Beverage Speaks 'for
Its «K.
The people who drink the popular
beer above mentioned all epeak of this
beverage in the highest terms. They
could not do otherwise under the cir
cumstances, for it is pure, healthful and
nutritious, and it iB becoming more
sought for daily, fast taking the place of
other brands, and as the increasing Bales
show, the quantity of this beer being
manufactured is enormous, which
BDeaks well for our home product so
ably brewed by such enterprising citi
zens as Maier & Zobelien. They de
serve success and they have won it, and
are meeting more of it every day. Ask
for Maier & Zobelien beer and you will
Burely get the best and be in the proces
sion with the thousands who declare in
favor of this brand.

Arthur O. Andrews was arrested yes

CHARGING EXTRA TIME.
INSPECTORS OS THE OUTFALL
SEWER DOING IT.
Tho Hewer Committee Dons a. Fighting;
Costume and Annihilates
the Kxpenstve
Habit.
A more excited trio of men has Beldom
been seen around tho city hall than the
sewer committee yesterday afternoon.
The committee received word that an
unnecessary expense was being made in
the construction of the outfall sewer.
The oewer committee, whose head is
the economically inclined councilman
from the East Side, attired in war-like
costume, proceeded immediately to the
scene of expense accumulation.
It did not take much inquiry to find
that tbe inspectors on the big sewer
had read tbe Herald's statement that a
balance of over $35,000 would be left
after the sewer's completion. Probably
they did not like to see bonds issued
and have such a large balance left.
Whether they did or not, the inspect
ors —who are paid $4 a day—have been
charging for extra time. They make up
daily reports of how much is done,
and some days the inspectors have but
little if anything to do. On thesedays
they get paid the usual wages.
The trouble wbb caused by extra time
being charged over and above the days
upon which the inspectors do almost
nothing and get paid for it. The sewer
committee discontinued the practice,
which would have coat the city a neat
little sum.

KNOXJHE HATTER,
GETS the:
HIGHEST PRIZE
GIVEN AT THE
WORLD'S FAIR
[From the October Number ot the American Hatter and the N. Y. Timee, Oct. 4.]
CHICAGO, OCT. 3-
E. M. KNOX, the well-known hat manufacturer of New
York and Brooklyn, returned Saturday to New York from a visi'
to the World's Fair with something more than pleasurable mem
ories of his io-day stay.
He has oeen voted by the Judges of Award the Highest
Award for Silk Dress Hats, Stiff or Hard Derby Hats, Soft Hats,
from the tiny pocket hat to the sombrero of the plains ; Ladies'
Riding Hats and Straw Hats for Men, Women and Children.
This is all the more gratifying to the hatter by reason of the
circumstances attending the exhibition which he made at Chica
go, but more particularly because the awards convey with them
the decision that, in the United States, are made hats superior
to those produced in any other country in the world.
Those who have seen the Knox Exhibit are not surprised
that it should have been so signally distinguished. It is con
ceded to be the finest at the exposition.
The Knox Hat Factory in Erooklyn is the largest hat-mak
ing establishment in the world. There is made every kind of
head covering demanded by men, women or children.
The exhibit proves conclusively that any hat made by Knox
is the very finest product of the hat-makers' highest skill.
