The sewer committee yesterday in spected a aection of the outfall sewer in which tbey discovered a thousand feet of defective work, which they will re quire to be done ever again. The Messrs. Mackey and Young, the contractors, will have a hearing today and be afforded an opportunity to explain the matter. There was a great hubbub in the board of police commiasionera yester day, eight policemen being dropped from the rolls through the initiative of the mayor and the two Republican members of that body. Singularly enough seven of the eight officers de posed are Republicans. Ove of the most dramatic incidents of tbe Btage is that in tbe Octoroon, where the murderer of "little Paul" commits the act in front of a can era, just as tbe Bcene is transferred to the plate. At Grand Rapids three burglars have just been jailed, the proof against them boing their photographs taken by an instan taneous camera worked by a fire flash light that went off as soon as they had opened tbe till. This is a case of truth being at least aa strange as fiction. At the request of the large number of women who are trying to purify the j press of San Francisco, the pulpits of that city thundered forth last Sunday upon the licentiouß way in which some of the home newspapers are conducted. The merry war is now on, and some of ihe papers conießS judgment by ridiculing the movement made against them ior reform. The women are in dead earn est, and the offending nowspapera feel the force of the etorin they are raising. This movement will at least put those journals on their good behavior, and that is something to be thankful for. And that is what they call him, Totheroh. Phoeboi, what a name! AndO.Tempora, O, Mores, what a shame ful scandal is connected with it! If Totheroh is not calumniated, he took hie leman to the city iv which the Presbyterian assembly met last year, and in spite of the fact that he wsb a delegate to that body, and held the title of reverend, he brazenly displayed his contempt for morality by his scauda'.oua disregard of the common proprieties. Totheroh has been very properly un frocked by the Presbytery oi Illinoiaand kicked out of the church. With such a name he had the hardihood to plead with Macbeth, "thou canst not say Idid it." But nevertheless, it was he, it waß thia Totheroh, and not : tother, oh. The district attorney, in his oninion to the supervisors aa to their power to devote the $10,000 not spent at the Co lumbian fair, says that tin legislature authorized the board to appropriate ♦00,000 for that purpose. The supervis ors only appropriated $40,000, and Mr. I)illon goes as far eb to Bay tbat they if tbey see proper, not only devote the unexpended $10,000 to tbe midwin ter fair, but might go tbe extreme limit authorized by tbe law. This is, of course, not asked, bnt they ought not to hesitate to let our people have tbe un expended $10,000, so as to at once com mence tbe erection of an appropriate building at tbe midwinter fair grounds. No mere technical objection, even if there were one, ought to prevail against so important a public object. OUR RESOURCES AMPLE. Tbe San Francisco Chronicle of Mon day contains a timely article under the beading, "Winter Visitors," in which it dwells with marked justice on the su perlative attractions ol San Francisco as a pleasure resort. We have not the slightest desire to dispute anything that places San Francisco at the very head of American cities as respects op portunities for amusement in all lines | except codfish aristocracy—the misfit | English phase of it. San Francisco is, :in truth, the American Paris, and tbe easterner who connot amuse himsolf there is probably far gone in paresis. It ia simply delightful. In scenic at traction there ia no place in America that surpasses it except Los Angeles, and it is the most cosmopolitan of all our cities. But, not content with prais ing its town, the Chronicle goes out of its way to depreciate other California citiee. Mark the smug conceit and in justice of the following: This year San Francisco will provide them with ample entertainment through the medium of the midwinter fair, but what will there be outside of that? What will Monterey do, or Santa Bar bara, or Lob Angeles, or Santa Monica, or Redondo, or Pasadena, or Riverside, or Badlands, or San Diego? The quea tion ia a plain, simple business propo sition, aud it behooves those wbo are directly interested in it to hunt up or devise a solution as soon as may be. The winter visitor baa rights which the state is bound to recognize and protect, and one of these is to be interested and amused while be ia with us. It is perhaps right that we should con fine our notice of this supercilious out giving to Los Angeles, the other points eneeringly dismisted being able to take care oi themselves through their vigi lant press. While Los Angeles cannot, as yet, claim to be a metropolitan city, she ia rapidly on the way to tbat goal. To begin with, we have tbe full run of all the amusements of any note that come to this coast. We could bave bad Henry Irving, tbe only notability wbo has not played here during tbe past five or six years, but we did not care to pay the extravagant price asked for his appearance. We have given Booth, Patti and a score of other celeb i itie*, better houses than they have frequently received in cities of five times our inhabitants. A great operatic organization once played a week here to a business of $40,000, which Bum was guaranteed by a couple of our citizens in advance. Lob Angelee has now two first-olaea theaters, another is nearly completed, and aeveral other places of amusement, in which entertainments of a high class frequently take place. Our drives are unrivaled tor their at tractions, and thousands of the homes of our citizsns presentall the attractions of the most beautiful parks in the world. A winter visitor can leave Loa Angelee at 9 o'clock in tbe morning and be on the top of Mt. Lowe, on a splendid peak of the Sierras, take lunch in the Rubio canon and drop down to the ocean at Santa Monica at 2 o'clock. He can take a swim in the ocean, eat a fish just pulled from the waves, and again reach i.os Angeles an hour before dinner. He can take the kite shsped track, traverse the most ro mantic and beautiful region in the United Stateß, leaving alter breakfast, and return in time for his dinner. If he ie a sportsman he can hunt or fish to his heart's content, either on mountain altitudes or on the ocean, and still never miss his dinner, and have gener ally his choice of amusements after that meal. If he ia of the "sporty" class and prefers a jack pot to other forms of diversion, tbey do Bay that he can be accommodated here with a very neat game. As to other forms of amusement, as to which we Bhall bave little to say, we would not venture to put the Augel City in rivalry with her older sister. We have said enough to chow that no one need avoid Los Angeles for fear of not being diverted, whatever may be his taste;. THE EFFECT OF CHEAP COAL. Whether the very high cost of coal in thiß city is justified by the cost of get ting it here or not, the fact remains that as long aa we have to pay from $10 to |11 per ton and upwardß for that arti cle, we cannot hope to make any degree of progress in establishing manufacto ries in Los Angeleß. The report of the United Stateß geological survey gives ttie amount of coal produced in the vari ous Btates, with the price received by the operators. The average pi ice of Washington coal was $2.28 per ton at the pits last year. It ia predicted that thia price will be reduced, for tbe report atates that the effect of lower freight ratea which railroad competition has brought about in that state will cause the opening and operation of other mines. Utah coal can now be bought at the mines for $1.50 per ton. Moat of the coal used in this city comes from mines on Puget sound, and it may be set down as a fact that none of this coal exceeds the price of $2.28 per ton at the pita. This would leave a margin of from $7.72 to $8.22 and over to pay for the handling transportation and profit on every ton of coal nu it in this market. Either the coat of handling and trans porting coal from Puget sound to Los Angeles muet be astonishingly great, or the profits must far exceed those made in any other staple article of commerce. We shall undoubtedly see, as soon as the Nevada Southern railroad delivers Utah coal in thia city at the rate of $5 per ton, that our people have been pay ing very exorbitantly for the article, and the importers of coal from Washington can lay it down in this market at a much lower rate than they now exact. We LOS ANGELES HERALD, WEDNESDAY MORNING NOVEMBER 15, 1893. doubt, however, whether they will ever be able to successfolly compete with the Utah coal when tbe Nevada Southern opens those measures to our market. In this one item alone we can ccc where the completion of this railroad will be of incalculable benefit to Los An geles. Kven should it oniy supplant the dear coal we now use with cheap coal, that alone would be of immense value io our people; but when we come to consider that with coal at $5 per ton we shall be enabled to extend our manu factures indefinitely, and give work to thousands of men where but a few scores are now employed, the benefits to accrue to thiß city cannot bo too highly esti mated. We believe that the indus trial advantages cheap coal alone will give us will increase the population of this city enormously. But the iron mines that exist in Utah will furnish us with the raw material to build up here the most flourishing iron works on tbe Pacific coast. We will be in position to establish rolling mills of immense capacity, and to turn out Bessemer steel plates that will supply armor for all the war vessels that are to be built on this coast, and to manufacture all the steel rails that may be required in tbe con struction of all tbe new railroads that will be built this aide of the Rocky Mountains in tbe future. These are of course the iron industries of a leading character that will be established here ; bnt there are a thousand lines of iron manufactures in which we shall suc cessfully engage when the raw material for their prosecution are cheaply acces sible to ÜB. To limit tbe growth of thia city lo 250,000 inhabitants in the next ten yoars ia to make a very modest estimate of what it will be. DIAGONAL ROADS. There is a strange prejudice in this country against diagonal roads and for compelling people to travel on rectang ular lines. Diagonal roads, as a rule, are by far tbe most convenient and use ful roads we have, but they are often given up at the request of some whim sical land owner and tho public there by put to great inconvenience. In establishing roads tho first and almost the only consideration should be the public convenience, but that is often disregarded to comply with tbe request of some individual whose only consideration is his own con venience. In nine cases out of ten the abandonment of a diagonal road is an injury to the person who objects to it, for such roads, oftener than other wise, add largely to the value of the property through which they run. it requires no great perception to see that property located on diagonal highways or streets, in city or country, iB usually of the greatest value. The reason for thia is not far to seek. Such apparently irregular ways result from the demands of businasa, while regular streets ara laid out without euch coueideration. In the country diagonal roads are not only a great convenience, but effect a very great saving in many ways. The amount of extra and unnecessary travel caused by the want of them is enor mous; and, of course, the wear and tear and loss of time proDortion ately great. The distance between two points, for example, by a straight diag onal road ia live miles; the same dis tance by rectangular roads iB seven miles, or two miles more. Thi3 greater distance, traveled by a thousand teams in a week makes two thousand extra miles travel; and in a year a hundred thousand miles; in ten years, how much? Diagonal roads have been given up in this country without apparently the least thought aa to the effect noon the public and very great inconven ience has resulted therefrom. In Borne instances public travel hae been diverted from old established diag onal roadß by individuals alone, without the consent of the public authorities at all. This has been done by simply fencing up or plowing up the road, tbuß driving people from it, as if by force. In euch inßtanceß the supervisors should Bee to it that the old and convenient road ia opened again. The public in euch cases loses none of its rights by prescription, or lapse of time. It can reclaim its own even after many years. It is aaid that (ireaham haß instructed Minister Thompson at Rio de Janeiro to by no means recognize De Mello at present. It is very probable that the cabinet baa received an inkling of the leaning of the Brazilian insurgent lead ers towardß the empire, and from a va riety of facts that have leaked out there is reason to believe that Count d'Eu, the son-in-law of the late emperor, Dom Pedro, is backing the revolution with funds raised rmongst the royalists of Europe to reßtore the empire in Brazil. It is even rumored that de Mello will soon tiirow off all dieguiße and float the imperial flag at the mastheads of his shipa. On the supposition that tiiese rumors are true, a gleam of light irra diates the policy of the administration in thia instance. Let ns be duly grate ful for this evidence of returning reason in our government. We were eadlv in need of some consolation of thia kind after trying in vain to interpret Gresh em's Hawaiian letter on American prin ciples. AMUSEMENTS. Lou Angeles Theater—Frank Dauiele in Little I'uck wao greeted by a crowded house last night.

Dr. F. 11. Palmers Remarkable Collection of Relics, Showing- the Life and Habits of Stmt hern California Natives. Thousands of Artielea or Stone, Boas and Bhells-The Kesalt of 15 Years Research—The Collection. There are very tew people in Los An" geles who are aware that there is in the city the conipletest collection of Indian relics, pertaining to the Indians of Southern Caiifornia. Yet such is tbe fact, and Dr. F. M. Palmer, tbe collector and owner, yester day exhibited his treasures to Mr. Joseph Medill, editor and proprietor of the Chicago Tribune, H. 0. Collins, Esq., and a Herald reporter. For 15 years past Dr. Palmer has been engaged upon his labor of love, and al though his collections bave been drawn on twice for eastern museums, yet the cream of them all he has kept, and the remarkable display was described by him with pardonable pride in its ethno logical importance and completeness. The articles were arranged systemat ically on tables in his cosy cottage at the corner of Toberman and Seventeenth streets, and number several thousand. The most remarkable feature of the exhibit is tbe preservation of the arti cles. All broken and marred specimens he was enabled to reject, owing to the abundance of the supply, so that the entire list is composed of specimens without a blemish. The articles have most of them been found by Dr. Palmer himself in his re searches and came from the counties of Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo, Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Bernardino, and the channel islands of Catalina, San Clemente, San Nicolas, San Miguel, Santa Hosa and Santa Cruz. Tbey comprise vessels of stone for grinding corn and stone implements of all kinds, bone and shell ornaments and implements for fishing and hunting, arrow heads, spear heads, and curious articles of stone, the use of which can only be conjectured. Tbe islands appear to have been the most prolific field of search, and one marked characteristic of tbe articles is the ingenuity and taste which the tribe of Southern California Indians dis played. From them and what is known of the Indians a very complete idea has been formed by Dr. Palmer of the civiliza tion and habits of the Indians before tbe advent of the Spaniards and their decadence and final disappearance. In those days tbe Indians were very numerous in Southern California, and had many villages on the islands and the mainland. Tbey appear to have been one tribe, and so powerful tbat the valleys between tbe ocean and the mountains were held by them as a hunting ground. Tbey could keep back tbe encroachments of other Indians, and they rarely molested them, remaining in the desert or up in the mountains. The great majority of the Indians lived along the coast and on the islands, where subsistence was easiest. The evidences of their presence has been found most frequently on the coast between Santa Monica and Redondo by Dr. Palmer, although he says they were all along the coast. Ileqnoted from the hardy Bailor, Cabrillo, who upon his first voyage along the southern coast speaks of seeing either signal or village fires dotting the whole coast, and be traying a large population. Dr. Palmer never found the remains of a village of any size more than two miles from tbe coast. Tbe relics of the vanished tribes show that the coast In dians were much superior to the moun tain Indians, and there is no comparison at all in their work. But the moßt Powerful subdivision of all appears to have been on Catalina island. Tbey discovered soapstone there in what is now known as Potts valley, in the central part of tbe island. They manufactured articles and vessels of all descriptions, and appear to have sola and traded in them extensively, as ar ticles irom the inland have been found far away from it. At the quarries can still be found the holes from which pot forma were taken, and pot sherds, or failures, which had been thrown aside. Their workmanship waa very good, and some of the articlea thus manufac tured and now in Dr. Palmer's posses sion are beautiful specimens of what could be done by these patient stone working aborigines. Tiie value of this collection is more easily realized when it is stated tbat tbe sitea of all the villages and burial grcunda of the Indiana have been thor oughly explored and all the remains of the departed race have been removed to varioue mueeums in the east end to Dr. Palmer's collection. .Nearly all tha articles were found within five feet of tha surface, although some were much deeper. In all hia digging Dr. Palmer never found but one article showing any pro ficiency in pictorial art, and that was a little engraved stone tablet on Catalina island. There were several lignrea on it, and it was evidently symbolical of Borne Indian superstition relative to tbe Great Spirit. A number of articles in the col lection were decorated by rude diagrams and lines, but thia waa tbe only effort at pictorial art which has ever been found. Stone axes were not made by the Southern California Indians, but one beautiful specimen obtained by the doc tor in San Bernardino county ia in his collection. The pota and various articles chow a very large use of aapbaltum by tbe Indi ans. They learned to übo it in many ways, using it as a Kind of cement, and some oi the atone implements chow that they had been used aa a tinsmith uses a soldering iron, to join articles together. That thia waa frequently done in attach ren baskets on top of pota and vessels, of atone ia shown in the collec tion by a pot and woven top found in use among tbe Indiana at San Jacinto. In the collection are a numberof stone vessels of all descriptions, displaying tine work, cut out of sandstone and made out of soapstone, and lying near by a most unique collection of toola for doing this kind of work. Those tools are fascinating in their way, and one is lost in astonishment at tbe polish and finish which the native workman obtained by the rude tools he used. There are files of sandstone, smooth stones which are shaped to fit the hand, and with which they smoothed and poliehed the insides of the stone pots. One singular fact disclosed by tbe pipe bowls is that tbe bowl and stem were made like a cigar holder. They were never at right angles. One red stone pipe bowl was made to tell an interesting story. Tbe stone is of tbat kind only found in Minnesota, although manufactured in the style of the Southern California Indians. From thia Dr. Palmer infers a wide inter change and traffic among tbe Indians. It is most astonishing to see the fin ished manner in which holes were drilled in the various pieces of stone. It must have taken immense and patient labor. In one of the burial grounds an unfinished pipe bowl was found by the side of the remains of an Indian. He had died while it was far from finished, and it had been buried with him. Some of the most interesting articles are imitations of fish in stone. There is one large fish, with fins complete, and there are other diminutive fish which evidence the touch of quite an artistic aboriginal hand. There are curiouß stone hooks, aomewbat resem bling tbe picture hooka that bang on picture mouldings. There is also tbe model of a dug-out in stone, that is a finished piece of work. Tbe Indians kept up constant travel between the islands and the mainland, and it was in jnat such frail little craft. Among the fishing implements are stone sinkers fashioned with cunning, both for deep sea and surf fishing. There are plummet shaped stones, which it is supposed were charm stones used by medicine men. They are highly polished and made of manganese, onyx and white quartz. It is thought they were used by tbe medi cine men as charms to bring rain, to bring luck in war and for use in the va rious superstitions of the Indians. In tbe collections are hundreds of ar ticles of ornament made from abilona shells, from bones and even stones. Tboy embrace beada so small tbat it eeems impossible tbat tbey could have been bored and fashioned with the naked eye. Some of these strings of beads are decorated remarkably with crossed lines, in which asphaltum was inserted to make the contrast greater between black and white. There is a chain of highly colored beads which were found in a burial place in tbe remains of a big chief, and were no doubt greatly envied at one time by tbe enemies of the brave. In one grave a bone sword blade was found which had evidently been laid upon the breast of the departed chief when he was laid to rest. Tbe shell and bone implements are very numerous in the display and also the chipped flint spear and arrow heads. They range from tiny well shaped speci mens to large ones that were no doubt used as knives, and there are even flint saws and files. In truth. Dr. Palmer's collection may well be regarded as supplying a com plete history to the thoughtful etbono logißt, of the life of a curious and inter esting race. What will become of the collection is a subject for interesting speculation. There is no museum in Los Angeles where such an exhibit can be placed, but it ehould properly be retained in tbe city. It will probably form a portion of srcbteological exhibits in some east ern museum. But tbe time will come when it would be greatly prized in our own museum. When that time comes it cannot be replaced. Turn on Hip light.
