Football ought to be very popular in
Los Angelet—there are so many "long
hairs" mixed up with tbe community.
Isn't it rather amusing tbat mules
are in a fair way to accomplish what
some of the business men in tbe state
have failed to effect?
The Republican oharge of fraud in the
election in Ban Francisco is true, and
Dan Burns, the leader of the Republi
can party in California, is author oi the
iniquity.
It is an ominous coincidence that
wile murderer Craig received his death
sentence on the anniversary of his
wedding. Ii is hoped that the hanging
will not be another coincidence.
Tbe strike comm isfiioners' report is
worrying the Pullmans and Hunting
tons more seriously than tbe strike it
self. Their subsidized newspapers are
squirming like worms on a hook and
come of them are howling like piga un
der a sate. They are beginning to feel
the weight of an honest public opinion
and it grieves them eorely to cringe un
der the lash.
Sugar Trust Havkmzyer sniveled
hypocritically the other day at the ne
cessity oi closing his refineries in re
sponse to their unprofitable operation,
owing to President Cleveland's unkind
referenoe to BUgar in hia message. On
the heels of this threat comes a divi
dend of 12 per cent on tbe trust's in
vestment and a tremendous "flurry" in
sugar on tbe stock exchange. All of
which goes to prove that Sugar Trust
Havemeyer is a liar of no mean propor
tions.
Again we urge that the legiolative
delegation of Southern California caucus
with the business men of the commu
nity on the needs of tbis section, to the
end that they may go to Sacramento au
effective, eolid body working lor tho in
teresta of their constituency. There ore
many questions of public policy and
preeßing need on which the people are
unanimous and which could be pre
sented for legislative action with almost
absolute certainty of a successful issue
if our representatives or 9 united, har
monious and active for the proposed
meaaureß.
It is with pleasurable emotion that
the friends of tieorce C. Perk ins learn
that Collis P. Huntington, of the
Sru'hern Pacific Railroad company, is
opposed to that gentleman's election to
the United Siates senate. The relations
between Senator Perkins and Uncle
Collie have never been intimate and
only tbeir commercial affiliations might
have acted favorably to the "magnate's"
rchemes in influencing the senator.
Now it is authoritatively announced
tbat Senator Perkins is in no way
tainted by tbe "support" of Hunting
ton, and hia proßpecta ot succeeding
himaelf are reaolving into a certainty.
The MYSTBBY of the purchase of the
Cbino ranch deepens. As a matter of
fact it appears to be geting out of its
depth entirely. The anuouacement
that 0. H. Phillips has paid Richard
Gird $1,500,000 for the property was
followed by the report that Claus
Bpreckles bad drawn $1,500,000 from the
Nevada bank, and the wise people wbo
edit newspapers put this and that to
gether and agreed that Claus Spreckles
had bought the Chino ranch. It is now
stated on the authority of Ansie'ant
United States Treasurer Berry that
Spreckles dumped hia 6)00 pounds of
gold into the aub-treasury for tbe ac
count of Drexel, Morgan & Co., aa a
contribution to the syndicate purchase
of United States bonds, This "refuta
tion" of tbe Spreckles rumor is plaus
ble enough on its lace, but it does not
solve the problem, and unlets Phillips
was a bona fide buyer we are at liberty
to inquire, wbo did? By the way, the
fact that Spreokles it in the sugar re.
finery business, was another suspicious
circumstance and one that barred out
old Sugar Trust Havemsyer at a possible
investor at Chino.
IMMIGRANTS EMIGRATING.
The report of Superintendent Stamp
of the National Immigration bureau
■hows a material falling olf in the num
ber of immigrants arriving in the Unit
ed States. It it estimated by this re
port that Mince October, 1893, the exo
dus of foreign steerage passengers from
the United States hat been greater than
the number arriving, and Mr. Stump
ooncludes that there are now fewer for
eigners in tbe United States, who cams
as steerage passengers, than there were
at the end of the fiecal year 1893.
The tables accompanying tbe report
shew that during the fiscal year 288,020
immigrants arrived in this country. Of
these 285.631 were landed and 2,389 were
debarred and deported at the expenee of
tbe various steamship lines transporting
rhem. In addition, 417 immigrants,who
had been landed, were returned to the
countries wbence they came, having be
come public charges within one year af
ter arrival in the United States, at the
expense of the steamship lines bringing
them, if the cause of their becoming a
public charge existed prior to landing,
otherwise at the expense of the irmni
grant fund. Of the immigrants landed
96,000 wore destined for Now York state,
42,000 for Pennsylvania, 25,000 for Mas
sachusetts aud 22,000 for Illinois, the
others being scattored throughout the
United States, no other state receiving
• greater camber than 10,000. Immi
grants destined for southern states, all
told, did not exceed 12,000. Of tbe im
migrants over Hi years of age 41,000
could not read or write.
A comparison of the figures for the
last tisoal year with those for the pre
ceding one will show the marked extent
of tbe decline. The immigrants allowed
to laud during the fiscal year ending
June 30th last, numbered over 150,
--000 less than these permitted to land
during the previous year, which showed
a decrease of over 180,000 as compared
with tbe year preceding. The decrease
aa compared with the fiscal year 1894
was 35 per cent. In other word?, there
was a falling off of nearly 330,000 in the
number of immigrants in two years.
The numbers coming from the countries
supplying the greatest proportion and
be decreases therein are ahown in the
following table;
Perct.

The superintendent suggests that all
immigrants coming from countries
which grant noi inn or penal certificates
upon application be by regulation re
quired to produce them upon arrival in
this country. Ho adds that had we a
law requiring statistics of tbe number of
steerage passengers returning to Europe,
as well as those arriving, the number
now in this oountry who came aa immi
grants would bo considerably reduced
by deducting those who come and go
annually, thus swelling tbe aggregate
by being counted several times, and it
would be ascertained that our own citi
zens arc entitled to more credit for the
unparalleled development of our country
than has hitherto been given them.
Both the receipts and the expendi
tures of the service show decreases as
compared with those for the preceding
flecal year. The receipts amounted to
$225,328 and the expenditutes to $204,
896, a decrease of $103,880.14 in receipts
and of $42,454 12 in expenditures. The
decrease iv expenditures was caused by
measures adopted by the bureau looking
toward an economical administration of
affairs —measures which were adopted
during tbe latter part of the fiecal year
1894.
This is an excellent showing fnr or
ganized labor, one of the chief reasons
for the exodue of an undesirable cla9s oi
foreigners being the sturdy opposition
of free American workingmeu to the
competition of the pauper labor of
Europe imported by euch greedy and
unscrupulous monopolists as Carnegie
and tbe Pennaylvanian coal batons.
There are advocates of this class of labor
even in this community, and much of
the opposition to organized labor is due
to tbe fact that its antagonists cannot
coerce it to a point where it must sur
render its privilege of demanding and
securing a fair, living wago iv return for
the productive results of its effort.
UNDER-PRODUCTION.
We hear a good deal of talk in certain
quartora about over-production ol Boine
California products. It ia interesting to
consider what examples are presented
ol decided under-production. In a pa
per read before the Technical Society of
the Pacifio Coast, Mr. W. <}. Curtis
callß attention lo some notable exam
ples of this aurt.
California is an pll-round agricultural
state, producing, in one Bsction or an
other, every farm product of any im
portance to bo found iv any other part
of the union, as well as soma half a
dozen valuable articles raised nowhere
else in the country. Vet the railway
figures for lost yeur show, according to
Mr. Curtis, that 40,000,01)0 pounds of
stock, farm or poultry-yard productß,
either in their natural state or manu
factured into etaple commodities, were
imported into tbe state.
Of tbia amount 36,01)0,000 pounds waa
composed of such ortieloa of food as
butter, cheese, poultry, meats, lard,
egga (of which latter there were 6,500,
--000 pound:.,, condensed milk, etc. Iv
addition there was shipped into the
state by rail over 13,000,01)0 pounds of
canned food goods, one-haii ua much
more by sea, auch aa fruits, vegetables,
rieb, Oj-sters, meats, etc. Of dried fruits
LOS ANGELES TTERALUt v SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 9, 1894.
over 1,250,000 pounds nre shipped in
annually by rail, 1,250,000 pounds of
oats, 1,000,000 pounds of pickles, pre
serves and jellies; over 3,700.003 pounds
of cornmeal end oatmeal, 1,250,000
pounds of farm and garden seeds, 10,
--000,000 pounds of flour, and 14,000 oases
of olive ( ?) oil.
These figures and tbe facts which
tbey set forth are by no means new, but
they are worthy of repetition, at long as
tbe absurd condition wbioh they indi
cate continues to exist. Tbat it should
take a train of cars about a mile long to
bring into tbis state the eggs that we
use—brought from the middle western
states over several thousand miles of
distance and up and down heavy grades,
into a state where the climate allows
hens to lay nearly all tbe year through,
and where poultry raising is rather a
luxury than a hardship—it seems incon
ceivable, but it is an aotual fast.
It is very bard to account for
the failure of the agriculturists of
the state to avail themselves of the op
portunities tbat lie right at their doors.
But these statistics of actual imports
tell the story. It may be said with re
gard to canned goods, wines, etc., which
are imported in such surprising; quanti
ties, that a perverse trait of bnman na
ture makes people look with contempt
on things produced near home and turu
with preference to the imported article.
But this ia certainly not true oi suoh
staples as meat, cheese, buttor, eggß and
poultry. Mo one ever stops to inqnire
where these come from, and the average
man would, on general principles, prefer
the home product if he could obtain it.
A cumber of years ago the idea pre
vailed here that this country was en
tirely unfitted for general agriculture
because of ita extreme dryness. It
would seem tbat tome remnants of tbis
curious hallucination yet exist, at the
state still rolies upon other sections of
tbo union to supply it with 80,000,000
pounds of material which could easily
be produced at home.
THE JAPANESE IDEA.
Early in tbe Chinese-Japanese war it
was given ont, in some brief dispatch
from the orient, that the Japanese pro
posed to follow a new and origjnal policy
in the treatment of prisoners. Instead
of abusing them brutally or putting
them to death, as is the usual Chinese
custom, they have planned to make life
as agreeable for them as possible, giv
ing them good food and clothes, protec
tion from cold, and all the comforts the
Japanese have; to the end, that when
they should make their escape—which
latter eveut waa planned as the de
nouement of tho affair— they should re
turn to tbe Chinese army with such
stories of the kindness of their captors
and of the joys of life as a prisoner in
Japan, that their fellow-soldiers would
make baste to throw down their arms
and surrender on tbe first opportunity
that presented itself. The dispatch set
ting forth this little plan was generally
laughed at iv Knrope and America as a
highly imnrnhnhln yarn, and the scheme
ridiculed ac an opera bonds method of
warfare. Recent dispatches, however,
corroborate the story and call attention
to the successful working of the plan.
The captured Chinese soldiers now in
Japan unite in declaring that tbey re
ceive much better treatment as prison
era than they ever enjoyed when in the
field at home. Instead of being hungry
and cold or half-naked, beaten and over
worked, they are given good rations,
warm clothes, and allowed to take iife
easily. Tbe Japanese have been gen
erally admitted to be a bright people,
but it is possible tbat they are
a good deal brighter than we have
ever suspected. Tbe greatest inventions
in tbe world's history, and those which
have left the most profound impress on
its civilization, have not been of
mechanical devices, but of ideas; for ex
ample, tbe inductive method of reason
ing, religious tolerance, tbe rights of
man to freedom, the human origin of
kingly power. It may be hard for the
Caucasian to believe that the next great
invention in the domain ol human
thought is to come from a co-called in
ferior race, but it is well worth consid
ering whether the Japanese have not
here touched upon tbe idea from which
shall come tbe abolition of all warfare.
The Napoleonic doctrine of dividing the
enemy to destroy him in detail was a
brilliant stroke that very nearly made
him ruler of all the world, but the Japan
ese idea of makiug the enemy your
friend, so that he has no disposition to
resist you, while it may not exalt them
to b» rulers of the world, will at least
make them invincible against all attack,
which ie the utmost that modern civil
ized natioua are disposed to ask. The
idea is So simple that it really seems
strange that no great nation has ever
before put it to tbe test. Since the
world began, upon the captured soldier
has been exercised, in a greater or lees de
gree, the hatred whiob is felt toward hia
country ; he has been tortured or put to
death, or made a slave, or—in modern
times 01117 —imprisoned, with more or
less indignity and privation. It
doea not require a very acute
power of logic to discover the
weak point in tho plan of torturing the
priauner or putting bim to death. Sol
diera with such a possibility before
them will naturally fight like fiends
Pursuing the argument along its
natural conrse, we are inevitably brought
to the conclusion to which the Japanese
oeem to have come—although they hap
pen to be the first nation to put the
tlieory to practical experiment. It will
be interesting to note the results of this
piau if it ia ontinued thn ugh a pro
longed war. TIIO escaping—or rather
dismissed—soldiers will soon bring tbe
Chinese army to such a state oi utter
demoralization tbat its generals will
fear to place it in the field against the
Japanese. The victories of the wojen will
booh bocomo do continuous as to make a
genuine triumphal parade through the
enemy's country. For how shall China
fight if she has noßoldiere? But one
recourse will be left her. She might un
dertake to outdo Japan in magnanim
ity, and fairly overwhelm such of the
letter's men at might stray into her
hands, with kindness. Where Japan is
accustomed to give a blanket and broiled
bones, let China give a feather bed and
some fried oysters. If Admiral Oyama
gives his prisoners • treat of beer aud
cheese, let General Yen serve his with
yellow label cocktails and a crab salad.
We beg seriously to recommend this
plan to Li Hung Chang at tbe bett pos
sible offset to the novel campaign of
the wojen.
If, however, as seems possible, tbe
Chinese persist in their old-fashioned
methods, the Japanese plan will receive
a thorough test, and if it continues as
successful as it seems to have been thus
far, it may be acoepted by European
governments. Then it would not be
strange il the great institution of war
fare, tbe aotive ourse of tbe past and tbe
dreaded menace of the present, were to
go out of existence early in the next
oentury amid a great guffaw of laughter.
FUTILE OPPOSITION.
There is little opposition to the pro
posed charter amendments and what
ever objection has thns far developed is
lacking in strength and cogency. For
instance, it has been nrged by one or
two political manipulators that the pro
vision whereby some of the city offices
will be filled by appointment is "an ef
fort to deprive the people of their cher
ished rights." This is buncombe of the
rankest sort. It is true that the pro
posed reform will cnrtail the patronage
of the boss and very materially lessen
his "influEncs" iv certain directions,
but it ia absurd to say that the interests
of the people will be in any way affected
to their detriment.
Tbe municipality can only be regard
ed at a great corporation doing business
in a practical, economical way; other
wise the government is in bad hands
and must be reformed. Evil conditions
may operate in tbe bett government in
the world and no aoheme can be devised
by which these can be utterly obviated
unless the people themselves are honest
and trustworthy, and capable of electing
their representatives and agents with
judgment as to integrity and ability.
Regarding the government of this city,
from a strictly businefs point oi view,
comparisons are in order as serving to
emphasize the proposition. There ia
not aoitizen in Lob Angelsß wbo, if he
were a stockholder in an ordinary
company, organized to transact ordinary
business, would expect that all the
stockholders should engage in tbe selec
tion of the company's employees. It
would be sufficient to elect a
board of direotors, a general manager
and a few other officers perhaps, whoso
duties would be independent, bo far as
tbe exercise of Dustiness judgment is
concerned; all other employees would be
chosen by those elected to manage the
business, thus rendering the adminis
tration harmonious and systematic.
Again, outside of a municipal corpora
tion, no citizen of good judgment would
accept a position of trntt or responsi
bility il that resposibihty included the
unknown capabilities aud character of
his subordinates—elected independent
of his will or approbation.
In this direction it may be claimed
with absolute certainty tbat one of the
best reforms proDOsed by the amended
charter is tbat wbioh makes the office of
street superintendent appointive. It
has been tbe good fortune of Loa Ange
les to secure city councils composed for
the most part of men well versed in affairs
pertaining to tbis particular depart
ment, which ia one ol tbe most import
ant executive branches of tbe govern
ment. It is the duty oi a councilman to
be especially versed in the requirements
of tbe ward he represents, of which
street improvement is among the moat
Important, All street work is ordered
only after discussion and consultation
by tbe council, and is completed by
their consent and under tbeir direction.
It is therefore logical tbat thoy should
control the appointment of the offi
cial who ia to execute their orders. To
claim otherwise is ridiculous.
If the opponents of the amendments,
who are also tbe enemies of progress aud
reform, cannot advance more tenabie
arguments, they might as well ceatie
tbeir feeble efforts to defeat this popular
offort to perfect tbe organic law of the
municipality.
FKitdnnH'i Solemn Farce.
[From the Oakland Enquirer.]
The Southern Pacific ia trying to get a fran
chise to run steam cars 01 a leading street,
Broadway, in Pasadena, Los Ange:e» county,
or a term of 50 years. Kevjr.il of the council
men declared they would ue'er consent, but
they have consonted far enough to pass an or
dinance to print, and now the city is making a
burlesque of the state franchise law by adver
tising for bid.i from ail parties who desire tn
run steam cars on the street, and who "shall
operat" said road iv convection with aud as
part of the Southern Pacific railroad syitem,
and shall run trains direct from iv said pssseu
gsr depot iv Pasadena, to its main depot in the
city of Lob Angeiep, without change of cars."
The solemn official preteuse that anyone other
than the Southern Pacific could bid for this
franchise is highly amusing.
Advertised In HI. Own Paper.
[From the Chino Valiey Champion.]
The editor o! the i.os Angeles Times is a
daisy. Alter solemnly announcing that Clans
Spreckels bad bought tbe Chino ranch, he says:
"It will be a fine thing for Southern California
if the great Chino ranch, which has so recently
been sold, is subdivided into small firms, as is
now proposed by its purchaser." Why, bless
your pulled-off head, co onel, Ihs Chino ranch
was subdivided into 10 acre (arms in the year
1687—seven years ago. The city election in
Los Angeles appears to have bad a muddling
effect on the great modern hoouoo.

PROPERTY OWNERS' RIGHTS.
Wbat Constitute* a Dedleatlon of Streets
Cl»»rly Defined.
An opinion was banded down yester
day by Judge Van Dyke tbat is import
ant to owners of oity property. Tbe
snit, upon which the opinion has been
rendered, is that of VV. H. Workman vt.
The City of Los Angeles, end tbe stand
taken in tbe controversy, examined at
length below, by Mr. Workman' has
been fully sustained.
Tbe opinion reads as follows: Tbis is
an action to quit title and for an injunc
tion to restrain waste by excavation and
carrying away the soil. The property in
controversy is designated on a map called
tbe Moore &. Kellehor map, as Johnson
street, lying between Pennsylvania ave
nue and Aliso atreet, and also a portion
ol what appears on said map as Work
man street, lying between Aliso street
and Lopez street.
The defenso is that these two streets
were dedicated to the publio, and the
city relies to support this contention
upon tbe filing of this Moore & Kelleher
map for record May 15, 1875. At tha
time of and before tbe filing of tbia
map, Francisco Lopez was the owner of
tbe property embraced in the map, and
the map was filed for record, at appears,
by John Lazzarevich, attorney in fact of
the owner. The power of attorney frost
Lopez to Lazzarevich, however, only au
thorized bim to sell and convey certain
parcels of land embraced within his tract,
which land so authorized to be sold and
conveyed doss not include tbe premises
in controversy. On the 3d of January,
1876, Lopez conveyed about seventeen
acres of bis said property to Gaston Ox
arart, without regard to tbe snbdivisions
designated on said map but describing
it by metes and bounds as an entirety .
And on Dee, 6, ISB3. Ozarsrt conveyed
this same property to J. E. Hollenbeck,
also by motes and bounds, and on Dec.
18, 1883 Hollenbeck conveyed tbe same
property to plaintiff, which property so
conveyed includes the property in con
troversy. The defendant introduced an
ordinance passed by the oitv in 1899, ac
cepting all streets theretofore dedicated,
but there was no evidence that these
so-called streets were ever opened or
traveled as streets by the publio. It is
very clear that the power of attorney
from tbe owner of the property to Laz
zarevich to sell certain designated por
tions of his tract, did not authorize him
to dedicate any portion of it to the pub
lic, in other words, to give it away,
and had no authority to to make or tile
the map in question for tbat purpose.
Besides, 15 years before tbe ordinance
passed by the city accepting streets,
and before the so-called streets weru
opened or used by the publio, the owner
of the property sold the portion already
mentioned, iv a body, and thereby to
tbat extent withdrew any offer to dedi
cate, if any such had been made.
Tbe platting of property by the
owner thereof into lots, with streets de
liuated en the map and filing the same
only amounts to an offer to dedicate the
streets.
In order to constitute a dedication
which can be taken advantage of by the
public authorities ol the city, tbe offer
of dedication must have been acoepted
by suoh authorities, either by use or
by some formal act of acceptance.
Haywood vs. Manzer, 70 Cal. 476; Peo
ple vs. Reid, 81 Cal. 77; Oity of F.ureka
vs. Croghan, 81 Cal. 524; Scbmitt vs.
San Francisco. 100 Cal. 302. And at auy
time before acceptance of the property
so offered to be dedicated, either by
formal act or by user, nn the pert o! the
public for a sufficient length oi time,
the offer may be revoked by the owner
and the subsequent conveyance oi tbe
land or auy portion of it so offered, be
fore any acceptance an the part of the
public, amounts to a revocation. Peo
ple vb. Reid, City of Eureka vs. Crog
han, Scbmitt vs. San Francisco; People
vs. Dreher, 101 Cal. 271. Aa shown,
there was no acceptance on the part of
the public by user and the formal ac
ceptance was some 14 years after the
conveyance by Lopez to Oxarart of a
portion of the premises covered by the
Moore & Kelleher map in a body by
metes and bounds.
Therefore, il any offer to dedicate bad
been legally made on the part of Lopez,
tbe owner of the property, the subse
quent sale to Oxarart, as stated, before
any acceptance on the part of tbe public,
worked, a revocation to that extent, and
Hollenbeck and the plaintiff, bit suc
cessor, took tbe property embraced in
tbe deed to Oxarart clear of any ease
ment on the part of tbe public.
It results, therefore, that the premises
in question have not been dedicated to
the public use as streets, and the plain
tiff is entitled to n dectee quieting bia
title and lor injunction against disturb
ing the soil of tbe same on the part of
