Thanksgiving <ls.y passed off pleasant
ly and uneventfully, tbe principal in
terest centering at Athletic park, where
a large crowd enjoyed an exciting
athletic programme.
Congress, in addition to the Presi
dent's message and the reports of the
departments, Willi probably grow famil
iar with that much-reiterated word,
"Hawaii," before the session has grown
very old.
It appears, tbat the aum allowed by
millionaire TJackey to his stapson-in
law, the Pr ince Colonna, wae $1000 a
month, instead of $175,000 a year. It
is pretty safe to say, in view of develop
ments, that the precious scamp would
. have been clear at nothing.
Portions of the old North Beach Bath
House hays been demolished prepara
tory to the erection of the moßt com
plete bat'aing establishment on the
Pacific C)a.st, and probably on the
American continent. It cannot fail to
prove a great attraction to the City by
the Sea. The completion of tbe elec
tric railws.y from Mt. Lowe to Santa
Monica rv-i'll also be a great card for thia
charming resort, and this is promised
•a an incident of the early summer.
We am: approaching a day when our
esteemed contemporary, the Express,
will schiuve another triumph of journal
ism. The president's message will be
delivered in Washington at! 2 m., which
will be !) o'clock a m. by Los Angelea
time, and our c. c. aforesaid will quite
naturally indulge in gratulatione at
Its superior energy in being able to
print the document tbe same day. As
a morning paper is not printed the day
before its date of issue it could not very
well give the president's message before
Tuesday.
Hobtiuultubal Commissioner John
Scott is about to be investigated by the
board of supervisors. His bills for
chemicals for the extirpation of bugs
are said to have reached paralyzing pro
portions. Hiß enmity to parasites is
■aid to have something to do with these
lwga outlays for thoie expensive chem
icals. The 13th of the present month
has been set as the date for the com
mencement of the hearing. The late
State Horticultural convention, which
•at in Lob Angeles, expressed a decided
preference for parasites, and antagonized
Mr. Scott's pet theories and costly prac
tises very emphatically.
Much Buch a sensation as was pro
duced at Hampton Roads during our
war by the advent of the Merrimac and
Monitor iB looked for in the harbor of
Bio de Janeiro when the veesels which
President Peixoto has recently pur
chased in the United States shall arrive
in that beautiful bay. Unless much has
been written to very little purpose about
the Destroyer that formidable vessel
ought to make come sensational history.
She carries a gun which will throw a
shell containing fifteen hundred pounds
of dynamite a distance of several mile?.
If this tremendous missile can be ex
ploded arvongst Do Mello's fleet some
thing extraordinary in the way of de
struction ought to be reported. Whether
the Deetroyor can ha handled easily,
and whether it can bu leadlly disabled
or destroyed, remainsi to be seen. A3 to
£1 Oi and El Rio it is very much a
I question aa to whether they could have
been conversed into effective war-ship?
lin such a brief period. Bnt they are all
j pointed aonth and they were probably
; intended to be useful rather than orna
ment*], and we ebonld therefore expect
to hear something from them very
ahortly.
MAJOR TRUMAN'S LATEST WORK.
Some time ago the Herald noticed
Major Ben C. Truman's biatory of tbe
world's fair and felicitated ita readera on
bia having been there to do tbe work.
He not only accomplished the task to
perfection, but it was a highly fortunate
thing for Los Angeles that be happened
to be on the scene, aa be ia devoted to
the Angel City. He paaaed many yeara
of hit California life here, and will be
recalled by old-timers ac the editor of tho 1
Star, a paper which went out of exist
ence shortly after ita eale by him. Dur
ing tike progress of the great Columbian
exposition the columns of the Herald
were, graced by many timely articles
fromitbe major's facile and always in
teresting pen. Prior to the opening of
the great exposition be superin
tended a special exhibit of Loa
Annies and Southern California
proilucta in the Hialto building
in Chicago, and it ia not too much to cay
tbat many peraons who are now valued
citizens of Loa Angelea city and county
were directed hither by his intelligent
and well informed dissertations upon
tbe attractions of a residence in this sec
tion of tbe country. Hia history of tbe
fair onght to be extensively read in Cali
fornia on its intrinsic merits, and we go
out of onr way to make this notice
editorial and personal because our late
townaman is a distinguished member of
our own guild.
Hia publication haa received a multi
plicity of commendatory and appre
ciative notices. Amongst the mass the
following, from the Chicago Tribune,
seeme te us to be specially worthy of
reproduction in our columns:
The "History of the World's Fair,
being a complete description of tbe
World's Columbian Exposition from its
inception, by Major Ben C. Truman of
the department of floriculture, with
special articles by T. W. Palmer, George
H. Davia, D. H. Bnrnhem, M. P. Han
dy, Jobn Thorpe, T. B. Bryan and many
others," ia tbe lateat contribntion to
world's fair literature. Major Truman
ia a newspaper man, an extensive trav
eler, with quick perception, an enter
taining talker, and replete with delight
ful reminiscences. He haa written en
tertainingly of what be has seen and
huard in tbe leading newspapers of tbe
United States. He waa contemporane
ous with tbe generala and politiciana of
thD war of the rebellion. He waß one of
President Andrew Johnson's private
secretaries, and was sent by the unfor
tunate executive to the aouth on aeveral
valluable missions. He knew more
public men st one time than any pri
vate citizen in the country. He went
to Jackson park when tbe fair work was
in its embryotic staze and waß made
assistant chief of tbe Floricultural de
partment, ln his leisure hours he
began to accumulate data for the history
of lihe fair. He wrote it aa tbe fair pro
gressed. His work ia finished and haa
jus i been isened by tbe Mini moth Pub
lishing company of thia city, No. 330
--334 Dearborn street. Typographically
the hook ia artistically attractive. The
binding ia illustrated with several views
of Jlackaon park aa the park appeared
whtin the epirit of the fair hovered
above it. Turning from this feature to
tbe book itself one ia entertained at its
contents by reason of tbe style in which
they are written, by new lights which
havo been thrown on old subjects, by
profuße illustrations, some of which are
not lound in other histories and books ol
the fair, and by the admirable arrange
ment of the subjects. The book is di
vided into 11 parts. The introductory
is from the pen of President Palmer,
and; then follows the story of bow tbe
fair was first mentioned by Dr. Ziretn
baa. There is a fancy sketch of how a
Chi cagoan arranged his parlor to ac
con imodate his friends who were to
visit him at the fair. In front of an
arti clo by T. B. Bryan on "Tbe Lasting
Benefits of the Fair," is a full page pic
ture of "School Children Passing Union
Square in New York."
Under "The Pillars of the Imposi
tion,," Major Truman treats of the fifty
five big men of Chicago who got the fair
and who made it tbe glory it was. Pic
turtis of the directors, officers, and of
tbe World's Columbian commission
accompany this chapter. Then follows
the atory of the great enterprise, each
Btep being marked and every depart
ment reviewed fully. A picture of the
burning of tbe cold storage warehouse
recalls the only horror, and then, in
par l 11, tbe reader is ttansported to the
Ferris wheel, from the height of which
he looks down once more on that pano
ranria which moved on and on, day and
night, along the Midway. It makes
one think of nights in Old Vienna end
in Cairo, and among the Bedouins.
Then brief, entertainingchaptersfollow,
giving also the data about admissions,
red letter days, costs and expenditures,
aye rage attendance, comparisons, Chi
cago's own day, and then the last day
and the last inspiration of Carter Har
rison, his speecii to the mayors, his
parting with tbe White City—strangely
enough they read now —and tbe curtain
fall,).
A i actress from California, whose
name is Mias Crystal Thornton, has just
submitted to a successful operation in
>iew York by which the dimensions cf
her nose have been brought into sym
metrxal relation with her otherwise
handiome facial charms. It seems that
her noße was of the Roman order,
hump-backed and hawk-tipped, and
that its prominence gave what she con
uidtred a blemish to her pretty face.
And as her face, like the pretty milk
maid's, was her fortune, and cut an im
portant figure iii her business, she
determined that her nasal organ should
be brought into harmony with her other
chains, even at the risk of a painful
and dangerous surgical operation. Her
mrve stood her in good stead, and she
iB now in the way of facing an audience
without beinc subjected to cutting criti
cinm about her conspicuous nasal organ.
We can well understand how ehe must
have winced when Bhe came on the
et.ige and heard such side remarks
as "Phceboj, what a nose!"
"Crimini; there's a cutwater for you!"
'•Great Cieiar, what a blow-pipe!"
Flteh and blood could not stand this
kind of rallying, so she summed up
courage to cut the Gordian knot of her
trouble, and submit hertelf to the
LOS ANGLES HERALD* FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER I. 1893
elision of the soarce of all her woes b;
the scalpel of the artist surgeon. He
courage and determination have eon
quered unkind nature, and we glory it
h«r spunk. But we tremble at what
will be tbe result of her success. Othei
women, allured by her example, wil
invoke tbe aid of the surgeon's art tc
increase their charms. The lady with
tbe pug nose will insist on having il
bnilt into a thing of beauty, and ladies
witb prominent ears will consult tbe
doctors about reducing them to present
able proportions. Miss Crystal may
have much to answer for. She may
find herself the pioneer of a mania
which will result in many disappoint
ments, for though the surgeon may
have it in his power to reduce a too con
spicuous nose to symmetrical Btibjec
•tion, there are female defects he will be
unequal to remove. Tor instance, he
cannot give additional cheek to the mod
est and retiring young woman, nor take
t down in the forward and brazen, with
out risking in the one case a permanent
disfigurement and in the other his
scalpel.
A careful inspection of the pre3B of
the United States shows an overwhelm
ing preponderance against the imposi
tion of an income tax. This sentiment
crops out as freely in Democratic as in
Republican circles. W, BonrkeCockran,
tbe great Tammany chief of New York,
ie outspoken against it. The llKitAi.n
was early in deprecating such a tax, and
we find that the reasons advanced
against it are exactly those propounded
in this journal, ft is inquisitorial, un
equal, nn-democratic, un-republican
and a premium on perjury. Only a great
war could justify it, and even in the heat
and throes of the war for tho union the
United States fonnd it convenient to re
peal its income tax. There iB little
chance oi its passing congress a second
time, and its introduction only tendß to
obscure the great tariff issue. By drop
ping it at once much valuable time will
be saved for the material features of
tariff reform. These remarks have no
bearing on the proposed tax on inherit
ances beyond a certain sum, upon ab
sentee landlords or upon the foreign
owners of immense land holdings which,
in some states, such as Texas, for in
stance, amount to millions of acres, held
purely for purposes of speculation.
These features of the proposed law should
have been enacted long ngo. They par
take of none of the inquisitorial or op
pressive features of an income tax, and
are calculated to prevent the growth of
great evils.
The breaking of a ten cent bolt in the
cruiser Olympia cost the Union Iron
Works just ten thousand dollars—
$S4OO in the special quality of coal used
and the remainder in the extra outlays
the company was put to in paying the
salaries and expenses of the ottieiaU of
the United States who were to have
Buperintended'the trial, and who will
be obliged to go through their labors
again after the vessel has re-coaled. By
tbe way, it would be quite inconvenient
to have one of these ten cent bolts
break in actual hostilities, and there
| seems to be very little guarantee agaiust
i the occurrence of each r> malapropos
1 incident.
Yesterday the tire department passed
under the control of tbe new chief,
Moriarty. The transfer was effected at
noon, although it had been planned to
take place at midnight. The new ad
ministration waß put to the test imme
diately, for the change had scarcely been
effected when an alarm of fire was
soOjpded from the Kan-Koo store, snow
ing that the position is no sinecure.
On both sides of the continent foot
ball seemed to be the principal diver
tissement yesterday. Princeton got
away with the ueually victorious Vales,
Harvard beat Pennsylvania, and in our
own state the Berkeleyans played the
Stanfords to a draw. In the llrst and
last games the "talent" waa badly left
and had to pungle heavily as a result of
its misplaced confidence.

HE PAID HIS BILL.
A HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL WHICH
WAS TORN IN HALF.
A Joke Which Becolled Upon the Maker-
A Shrewd Birtender Torna the
Tables Upon a Practical
Joker.
As is usual on Thanksgiving day, a
considerable quantity of egg-nog was
consumed yesterday by thankful citi
zens, and a number of amusing inci
dents could be witnessed upon the
streets and elsewhere in consequence.
But there was nothing caused a heartier
laugh than an occurrence which took
place in a Spring-street saloon.
The talented mixer of drinks who pre-
Bides at tbat particular bouse of call is
a bit of a was in bis way, and a man
whom it is difficult to "rattle" on any
I sort of a proposition, as the following
story will prove:
An army officer, a genial six-footer,
had made the Spring-street resort his
headquarters during the day and by the
timo afternoon was reached bad suc
ceeded in reaching a thoroughly mellow
and satisfied condition, and it was when
he reached this stage that he conceived
I tho idea oi scoring one oil' bis friend,
the dispenser of drinks.
Calling a couple of friends up to the
bar, the army man called for the drinks,
which in the twinkling of an eye made
their appearance and were consigned to
a place of safety.
Witb a careless air the jocund six
footer stuck two fingers in his waistcoat
pockot nnd pulled out a bundle of $100
bills, tbe number of which caused the
hair of those present to stand on end
with envy.
Selecting one, the owner gravely
passed it over to tho barkeeper, aud,
turning to his friends, winked the other
eye.
Tbe white-aproned one scanned the
figures on the bill, and, shaking his
head, regretted that he was unable to
make change.
This of course was exactly what the
man with the roll expected, and in high
glee he declared that the dunks wore on
the house.
The barkeeper, who still held the bill,
protested, however, but in vain. The
army man would listen to nothing; un
less the bill wsb changed there wonld
be no drinks paid for.
The man behind the bar thought a
minute, while the crowd were enjoying
tbe joke, and then made a last request
for h smaller amount of money.
His appeal was ineffectual "Drinks
on you—or change the bill," laughed
the owner of the hundred.
The barkeeper sizing up his man as
one who enjoyeth a joke, then remarked:
"All right, old man, I'll fix you," and
taking the bill by each corner tore it iv
half, while the crowd looked on, aghast
at the sacrilege.
The owner of the money suddenly be
came serious, and began to vigorously
protest.
Then the other banded him one half
tbe bill with the laconic remark, "Come
around later and pay for the drinks and
I'll give you the otherhalf."
Expostulation was of no use, and the
good natured officer yielded to the inev
itable and acknowledged the laugh was
on him.
Later on he re appeared, this time
with change, and receiving the other
half of the $100 bill pasted the two
1 ! aof paper together, after which he
Bet up the drinks for the house.
WILSON'S TARIFF RILL.
The Income Tax to Re Limited to Cor
poration! and Successions.
Washington, Nov. 30.—1t has been
definitely determined that the income
tax system to be reported to the ways
and means committee will be confined,
to a tax on the net incomes of all cor
porations and on successions and lega
cies. Bryan, McMillin, Whiting and
others made a Btrong fight for a plan
broad enough to include- all incomes of
individuals in excess of $5000, but have
been forced to aquiesce in the will of the
mejority and abandon the graduated
income tax in favor of one applying only
to corporations and successioua. It can
bo confidently announced that the tax
system will be narrowed down to these
specific limits uuleis the reccmmenda
tiona of the committee are upset iv the
house. The tax on successions and
legacies will apply only to personality
and moneys.
The Democrats of the committee have
also decided to increase the rates radi
cally on cigarettes and impose a tax on
playing cards. Both these points have
been definitely decided. The internal
revenue tax on whisky is still an open
question. The committee is maintain
ing a studious reticence on this subject
for fenr of manipulation by apeculatora
on the stock exchangee.

WORKSJF ART.
A Spring Street Display Draws
Crowds.
Where Goods Are Sold Kxactly aa They
Are Represented—Destined to Be
come One of the Attractive Fes
tares of Lni Angelce Olty.
The great Jewelry and art establishment of
M. German on South Spring street, between
Third and Fourth, Is rapidly assuming shape,
and hundreds of people stop daily to admire
the beautiful goods which are displayed in the
show windows. Those, however, give but a
faint conception of the wealth aud vari
ety of artistic and valuable articles
which are exposed (or rale within.
lhls establishment will be a Godsend to that
numerous olaaf of citizens who desire to select
some artistic piece of jewelry or work of art,
either for themselves or aa a present, and who,
while having little knowledge on the subject
themselves, desire to be sure that what they
buy is exactly as represented, and that they
a.c not being charged an exorbitant price be
cause of their lack of technical knowledge.
It is generally understood that in the average
jewelry store prices arc more or less elastic, de
pending to a great extent on the knowledge or
acumen of tne buyer. This la not the case at
German's, where a child may bay as advan
tageously as a man who "knows the ropes." A
tlxed and moderate proilt Is charged on each
artlc'.e.
Mr. German is here to stay. He intends tn
Identify him,elf with Los Angeles. It is easy
to sec tbat his establishment will, within a
short time, become one of the features of the
city.
