The rctb to the c lasida yesterday was not on a munumental Bcale, the Terminal and Redondo railways only being available for that purpose. Blessed ia tbe man who ia not obliged to travel nowadays! The vision of a passenger train tied up on the desert baa no terrors for him, although, by the way, ehould the strike last for any length of time there is no telling who will be hit. It is pretty safe to asenme, also, tba'. the men engaged in it are not materially aiding to. their bank Bg . counts. Mr. CiißisroriiEß Buckley, by all ac counts, has taken a leading part in tbe late Democratic primaries at San Fran cisco. The connection of tbe blind ''boss" with Democratic politics in tbe past has not been flattering to tbe sell respect of the Democracy. Evidently crucial measures are needed to rid both panics of bosßiem, and it need surprise no oneif the conjuncture should result in a new nou-partizan ticket in that city. Seme of our most popular seaside re torts suffered yesterday from tbe tie-up. Santa Monica would have been visited by an immense crowd yeeterday if the trains had been running. It was jest such a summer day ac usually tends our people to the eeaside in immense num bers. What was Santa Monica's Icbb was the gain of Long Beach, San Pedro, Catalina isUnd and Redondo Beach, which conld be reached by traina ou the two railroads still lei t open, or by steamer. Two ob three years ago, when the question of ths revision of the West minster Confession of Faith waa before (he Preabyteriau church and the world, Mr. John Shirley Ward, an elder in the Presbyterian clinrch, published* in onr columnß several strong articles in favor* of tb<» revision. The revision sought for failed because it did not receive a two thirds vote of all the presbyteries. Many Presbyterians and other theological thinkers are in doubt today why the re vision failed. Mr. Ward, in our columns today, answers this question in an arti cle, Why Revision Failed. We ask spe cial attention of not only Presbyterians, but of all religious thinkers, to hit communication. Our people should pay no attention to the minors industriously circulated, doubtless for speculative purposes, that there ia danger of a coal famine in thia city, and that the gas company will be compelled to leave na in darkness. The company has an ample supply of coal on band ; and even if it had not, nearly all its coal comes here by eea, and there ia no blockade that can interfere with the snpply. Nor is there any need of anticipating a dearth of staple provis ions. Unlesß the blockade should last much longer than any one anticipates, there will be no scarcity. Our ports are open, and we have two railways free of the strike and the boycott to bring all tbe Buppliea wo require shipped to us by eea. Tbe situation'is bad enough. It is no small calamity to have onr business parclyzsd, our fruita left to rot and our nsual communication with the' rest of tbe world interrupted, without adding to the misfortune of the situation hy false reports that we are likely to suffer from a dearth of the usual necessaries. Why should not the railroad com panies mn their own Bleeping care? It ia true that the Pullman company haß patented everything in its line in sight, and what is not patentable now under onr system of patent lawß and the rules that have grown up in the patent oflice ■ past finding out. We presume, how aver, that the beds and pillows and cov •rings are etill outside the exclusive right of the Pullmans to produce, and that they have no "lead-pipe cinch" ■ pon tbe power of the public to lie down and sleep, so that it ia still within the ability of the railway corporations to fur nish their patrons with a hp read of some kind. We can hardly conceivo of any •jconvenience the publil would not rather euff-r thin to baiubjsctto the h rdehipi f tea trials as °h-y haveen dnred durirg the past few days, and they are not so enamored of the luxuries efforded by a Pullman car that they would jnpardiz > the entire business in terests of tbe country in order that the Pnl msn corn pane on continue their ex tortions and impuiently dominate the rai'ro. d corporalu ns und their cus'om ere. 'II c raih a-1 tliat will break loose (mm 'his nm.a a a nlliance, end do efftair kttsiaeai is a complete and iado pendent way, trill make themselves pop ular with the traveling public. The Southern Pac flc company used to bave a very fine assortment of sleeping cart of their own. It was never claimed that these cars infringed any patent, and they gave entire aatitfaction to their patrons. That company is in position to throw off tbe Pullman yoke, and we have no doubt that it would make itself very popular with the public if it would do so. Nothing H in -re certain than that the Pullman company, through its hoggithness, stands on a worse footing with the public than any other corpora tion in tbe country. THE HERALD'S INCOMPARABLE SER VICE. Thrown on its own resources for tbe distribution of its paper through Southern California, the Hkrald has aa mual proved its va?t superiority. Eclipse is firet and ihe rest nowhere. This ionrnal reached Pomona this morn ing two hours abend of tbe Times, and the same thing was true of nearly every other point. Brag is a great horse, but Holdfast is a much sorer nag. There ib no pleseure in interrupted communica tions, but it has enabled the Hkrald to j show its patrons bow ample itß resources j are when all ordinary lines of business \ are interrupted. REAL DANGERS-LET US HAVE NO PRETORIANS. There are all eorte of oddities going on in the United States today, and no one noed be surprised at what may hap pen next. The strike of the American Railway union against tbe Pullman incubus is one sign of the stage of acate tension nt wnich we have arrived, liv never, there have been strikes before and there will be strikes again, apparently, till the crack of doom. Tboy are not pleasant things to encounter, but the American people are ussd to them, as are the French and English nations. In Eng land, a couple of years ago, the strike ol tte longshoremen of London threatened for a time to paralyze the commerce of the world. It required the personal in terposition of Gladstone, Lord Kosebery and Cardinal Manning to bring about a compromise which at last tllowed the world's business to go on. In 1877 we had a series of strikes in the United States that were calculated to take the kink out of the hair of the iron and coal barons. The most lurid of tbe developments of this social volcano took place at Pittsburg. Before the trouble had ended there wae considera ble slaughter and $8,000,000 worth of property had gone up iv smoke. There was probably even more property than that destroyed, but that was the figure at which the damage was assessed, and which the county of Allegheny was obliged to pay to the Pennsylvania Rail way company and others who Buffered loss. That was a pretty costly fire, and no wonder poor Tom Scott rushed into the North American Review with an articiu recommsnding the establisnment of a standing army of one hundred thousand men. Congress contented it self with simply laughing at the fright ened capitalist, and that great strike was over. It is not our purpose to enter upon the etrike proposition on its merits. It iB too complicated a question to be can eidered in one article. There are, in our opinion, far more important things than strikes even. Economic questions of this kind adjust themselves, and ulti mate relief can be obtained by the gov ernment's taking possession of and run ning the railroade. Thia would un doubtedly be a form of paternalism, but it might come to be a necessity, and ne cessity knows ni other law than itself. But this strike, which ls a baby one compared to the strike of 1877, will hardly endure long enough to persuade our people that it is altogether lovely and wise to put such a powerful agent into tbe bands of such politicians as A.r. Christopher Buckley and Mr. Daniel M. Burns, for that this would be tbe result of making the government master of the railroads and of the tele graphs cannot be donbted. The party that once obtained power, armed with such machinery, could be dislodged, if at all, only through the energy born of revolution. There are to ns signs in the United States today that are very much more alarming than tbe present strike, or a dozsn etrikSß, and that is the marked development of tendancies which are in a marked degree neither democratic nor republican. We learn through the tele grams that it is proposed to give tbe president of the United States a mount ed guard. In times of great excitement a slight addition to the police force of ihe White House wonld be readily ac repted as an incident of the day. But a mounted guard would be so abhorrent to the ideas of Americans that its in auguration ao a feature of any American a [ministration would Btamp it with ig nominy forever. We doubt its utility i s a protection to the president. The only occupant of the White House who was assassinated since the foun dation of our preeeit eyete-m of govern ment to the present year, who ever had a guard of any kind, was Mr. Lin coln. That was in a time of war, when ih'! passions of men were at a'whits heat, and Lincoln himself would have been the first to deprecate it in a time of peace. Tne assassination of President Carnot, which has been profoundly deprecated all over the world, has had too great an effect on timid peop'e. The president cf the French republic at the time he vaß stabbed by Santo was surrounded by cuirassiers, the testimony showing that to jump upen the step of the pres ident's carriage it wai necej'ary to pnsh cne of the°e heaviiy armed soldiers to one side. A week before, on tho other hind, nn attempt wai mute to rtsassin ate Signor Oispi. thi Itnlinn premier, and that atie and reroute man, who ir»" without guards, nprang ont of his carriage and grappled with and tuld fcia LOS ANGELES HERALD MONDAY SlOfGNimf, JUJLT r, 1834. astailt.rU until tne police came and re lieved him of In? prisoner. Two attempts were made to assassinate Bismarck alter tbe Franco-German war, and ia each case tbe prince of blood and iron was walking I'oter den Linden unattended, whioh was his uniform practice. Tbe last attempt was made by a son of Karl Blind, and | that misguided individual ie still in ! prison walls meditating upon what a fool he made of himself. The attempt npon the life of Mr. Gladstone, when walking; unattended to his I ou?e at 3 o'clock in ths morning—unattended al though a man of eighty-four yean—is still fresh in the memory of everybody. The only cases where the assassin gets in his deadly work are where the viotim is surrounded by an armed guard. Gar held appears to be almost the only ex teption to tbia rale. Trnst in the masses seems to act as a mascot. We need to cultivate the eld democrat ic-republican spirit in the United States. Any one who is afraid to encounter ihe perils of high end responsible station ought to remain in obscurity. The pri va c station will be more in harmony with his timid spirit. The peopleof the United States would look with extreme distrust upon tbe beginning of a I'reto rian guard in the United States. SOCIETY. A book party was given last Friday evening by Mre. S. C.

COUNTY EDUCATORS. Tha »,viy Elected Members of tho Ceuuly Board. Edncational circlet have been much disturbed of late over the contest for the twj vacant positions on the county board of education. The members of that board are ap pointed by the connty supervisors. Profs. Strine and Ennis, whose terms tiave expired, were not candidates for the positions; but Profs. J. B.Millard, C- T. Meredith, E. P. Rowell and N. F. Smith made a very active canvass, as if a political campaign were in progress. All tfle forenoon Saturday the board of supervisors had many callers On edu cational matters. The school board matter waa brought up just before noon. Prof. Millard was elected by a unani mous vote, but thero was considerable ekirmiihiug for the other position. It was etated that there was a bitter fight between the friends of Rowell and .-in 11.. Supervisor Hay took occasion to say that Prof. Rowell had been ma ligned by thoaghtlees and irrasponsii.de 1 persons, who had better engage in other business. Prof. T. 0. Meredith, of the Citrus high school of Azusa, was chosen for the other position on the echool board. Prof. Meredith is a ripe scholar and has had much experience ac an educator. He served with distinction as superin tendent of public Bchools of Ventura couuty, also as principal of the high schools at Ventura and Santa Paula, and is now tbe principal of the high school at Azusa. Prof. J. ii. Millard, the other new member of the board of education, is principal of the Sand street school and an able educator.
