MEMORIAL TO CONGRESS URGING TMMEDIAIE ACTION FOR THE
CONSTRUCTION OF A HARBOR AT SAN I'EDRO,
LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CALIFORNIA.
To the Congress of the United States:
The undersigned citizens of the United States, residing In Southern California
•nd adjacent territories, wonld respectfully represent: *
I. That a deep sea harbor on the coast of Los Angeles connty is a matter of
argent necessity, not only for tho commercial needs of this section, bat also fo
the uses of ths national government.
11. That three boards of government engineers have examined the different
harbor sites suggested, and have in each case unanimously decided in favor of San
Pedro as the best location, their reasons for selecting it being in eaoh case set
orth at length in their reports to the war department, whioh reports have been
laid before yonr honorable body,
111. The only opposition to San Pedro emanates from Collie P. Huntington, the
president of the Southern Pacific Railroad company, wbo for his own selfish ends
desires the selection of Santa Monica, where his corporation bas a monopoly of
the water front, and where competition by other railroads is an impossibility.
IV. In view of these facts and conditions, we earnestly urge your honorable
body to take immediate action and make such appropriation as will enable work
on the proposed deep sea harbor at the present session of congress.
In support of oar petition we wonld call your attention to the reports of the
government exoerta authorized by your honorable body at various periods during
tbe past three years to select a location for a deep sea harbor on the coast
of Los Angeles connty; to tbe memorials of the atate legislature urging the con
atrnction of a harbor at San Pedro; to the action of Tranamissiasippi congress of
1893-4; to numerous petitions of the chamber of commerce of the city of Los An
geles, resolutions of city councils, boards of supervisors and commercial organiza
tions of Southern California; to petitions of tbe citizens and commercial bodies of
every principal city and town of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico, all urging ap
propriation for the construction of a deep sea harbor at San Pedro; and to the
resolutions embodied in the platforms of the oounty conventions of all political
parties of Lob Angeles, favoring the proposed harbor.
The undersigned respectfully submit that tbere can be no valid objection nor
feasible opposition to tbe proposed harbor, and that the urgency of the measure
at this time is in the nature of an emergency.

FIRELESS PEOPLE OF TODAY.

If the eating of flesh food be instanced
as a distinction that separates man from
anthropoids, it can be urged on the Bth
■er side that the latter feed oo io
j sects and when ia captivity by no
j means despise flesh food. Tbe first
| man, too, was probably a "vegetarian,"
■ but necessity and the absence of sufii
ciect vegetable food for his augmenting
apecies may have driven him to a flesh
diet.
The cooking or roasting of meat ronst
ba regarded as an acquisition of a later
epoch, because in Ihe earliest stages of
mane development there was undoubt
! edly a very long tireless period and be
i cause there are said to he tireless people
| even in the present day, euch as the
! Uokos, in Abyssinia, observea the Fort
j nightly fieview. The Australians, too,
| knew nothing of boiling and roasting
food ontil the advent of the Europeans.

latest accounts from Otto Luders ol
these savageß, great mortality prevails
among tbem, and they withdraw them
selves into tbe woods more and more at
the approach of tbe Europeans. They
go completely or almost completely
naked, live in holea in the earth or
nnder overhanging rocka, or build them
selves a sort of rough but with branches

bows, and arrows tipped with iron,
wbioh they seize an booty from the
wricks of stranded ships. Their hatchets

now made of iron, end are bound to the
handle with thongs. They only count
up to three, and have no conception of
(lod or immortality; they believe in a
good and bad spirit only, hide their
dead in the ground or throw them into
the sea or lay them ou wooden scaffolds,
dance to the tune o! a sounding board,
have a very keen senna of vision—with
their arrows they ehoot fish that no

LOS ANGELES HERALD, TUESDAY YFORNTNG, JANTJAKT 29, 1895 t
SUBMARINE TORDEDO BOATS
frorsd to U«i Usußitroui to Thai* Who
Man I. ,' i
The coffin-shaped torpedo boat de
signed to crawl along the bottom of the
sea, which is building at Atlantio High
lands by Simon Lake and his associates,
and whioh drifted ashore on Barley
Point, N. J., a few days ago, may prove
a "coffin" indeed, aa nearly all sub
marine torpedo boats have done. The
fish torpedo boat that destroyed the
union gunboat Housatonic off Charles
ton harbor during tha civil war, was
built at Mobile in 1863, by Hundley
McOlintock, and was arranged with a
pair of lateral fins by the use of whioh
she could be submerged or brought to
the surface.
Her motive power was a hand propel
ler worked by eight men, and it wag in
tended that ehe should dive under a ves
sel, dragging a torpedo after her, which
would explode on contact with the hull
or keel of the enemy, the "Hah" mak
ing oil oa the othe- side. Sho was pro
vided with tanks which could be (Tiled
or emptied of water, to increase or de
crease her displacement, but there waa
no provision for a storage of air. Dur
ing an experiment at Mobile she sank,
and before she could be raised the
whole orew were suffocated. Gen.
Beauregard in February, 1864, ac
cepted thia boat for una at Cnarles
ton. Lieut. Payne of the confederate
states navy and a crew ol eight men
were preparing to take her ont for ac
tion one night when ehe was swamped
by the wash of a passing steamer and
all hands except Payne were drowned.
Again she was raised, and once more
sunk—this time at Fort Sumter wharf,
when six men were drowned, Payne ami
two otherß escaping,. When she was
brought to the surface Hundley took
her into the St mo River, where, after
making several successful dives, she
etnck her nose into the mud nnd every
soul on hoard perished by suffocation.
For tbe fourth tine she was raised,
and experiments were made with her in
Cnarleston harbor She worked beauti
fully until she attempted to dive under
the receiving ship Indian Chief, when
she fouled a cable, and once more she
proved a coffin for every man within
her. Divere brought her up a week
later, and Lieut, Geo. E. Dixon of Cap
tain Cothran'a company oi the Tweuty
first Alabama infaatry asked permission
of General Beauregard to try her against
the Housatonic, a splendid new ship-of
war, which lay in the north channel, cff
fieach inlet, Charleston harbor. Gen
eral Beaurogard consented only on tbe
condition that she should not be used as
n submarine machiue, but operating on
the surface of tbe watar, and with a
spar torpedo, in thesaruo manner as the
Confederate David.
All tbe thirty or more men who had
mat death iv the "fiah," or "coffiu," aa
it turned out to be, were volunteers, but
Lieutenant Dixon had no difficulty in
finding another volunteer crow ready to
!ake the same rik*. They were Arnold
Becker, 0. Himpkine, James A. Wicka,
V. Coiling, end one Kidgway, all of the
confederate navy, and Capt. ,f. F. Cari-
Bon oi Capt. Wagoner's company of
artillery. It was a little before i) o'clock
on the evening of February 17, 1861,
wheu Master .1. K. Cropoy, officer of thu
dealt of the ilonaatonic, detected the
torpedo boat a scant hundred yarda
away from the ship. It looked to him,
he said, "like a plank moving
along the water," and before be
decided to give the alarm he had
lost tbe seconds in which he might have
caved his veßsel. When he d : d pass the
word, her cable was slipped, her engine
backed, and all hands called to qunr
tors; but Dixon had closed on her, and
fired bis torpedo on the starboard side,
just forward of her mainmast. A hole
was knocked in her side, extending be
low ber water line, and she went down
in four mmutes. Five of the Hnusi'.
tonic's people were killed by the shock
or drowned; the remainder took refuge
in the rigging, from whioh thoy were
rescued by other vessels in the blocs
ading fleet.
But the victory of the "fiah" wan
fatal to herself and crew. Whether she
was ewainped by the column of water
thrown up by the explosion, or wits
carried down by the auction of the sink
ing Houaatonic, will never be kpowu,
but she went under, never to rise again,
and the llvej of all on hoard wore aaori
ficed. After the war, when tho wrecks
ott' Charleston wore removed, she waa
discovered lying ou the bottom, about
100 feet from the liousutonic, with her
bow pointing to tho lattor.
A somewhat similar torpedo boat was
dredged up in July. 1878, in the canal

SELF-MXILED MILLIONAIRES.
An Aatnr a>o<l a Vaudarb*lt Have Prac
tically Quit Thl* O .v.'try.
By a strange coincidence two repre
sentatives of the wealthiest of American
families— families ti e.t userl tv be anta
gonistic, but now are friendly—sailed
for Furore from New York tba other
day, with the purpose practically of ex
patriating themselves. William Waldori
Astor nad been in New York city just a
week. He carun to attend tha funeral
rites of bis late wife. Of ouurse it was
not to be expected that npon snch a
mission o! sorrow be would nee tr.any of
his old frinnrls. At the tame time, says
the Philadelphia Press, in his brief stay
it seemed to these friends that he made
perfectly clear his determination to have
no further interest in things American
excepting such its tho mra of his vast
property here entails. Of course there
was public comment because, with the
exception of .Mr. Drayton, no member
of tha other branch of the Astor family
took part in the funeral ceremonies of
the late Mrs, Actor, while some ol them,
in fact, were ia the vfcry whirl of excit
ing social pleasures.
Something that Mr. Astor said or did
caused the report to be spread about tbe
clubs and iv business circles that when
he departed from America he departed
for good, and very likely would never
return, excepting under stress of busi
ness engagement. - Exactly what tbe
chief influence whioh led to this deter
mination of expatriation was nobody
eeemß to know. At one tim 6it was
thought to be anger at hiß political fail
ure. But tbat is impossible, since his
failure to 1)3 eleoted member of con
gress occurred some time before be was
nominatad minister to Italy by Presi
dent Arthur. The reasons probably
aro partly social and partly family ones.
Mr. Astor is said to be very much
pleased with his experience ac a news
paper magazine publisher, and stories
were told of his intention very greatly
to enlarge hit editorial investment.
William X Vaodottiilt, who sailed on
tiie seme day, trill, it is believed, spend
boreafter very mucb ol his time in Eu
rope. He does not propose to expatri
ate himself so completely aa Mr. Astor
doeß, but he has given over his Nerf
York and Newport houses to the use of
his wife, haa settled a large sum upon
her and it ie now clear that there is to
bs voluntary if not legal separation. He
reserves for himself luxurious and yet
after all comparatively modest apart
ments in the Metropolitan club, keep
ing them year in aud year out for his
use whenever he happens to visit New
York. But his friends thiuk his com
ing will be as infrequent and his stays
as brief, perhaps, as are those of Jnmea
Gordon Bennett.
WHAT DAttWtN OVERLOOKED.
B*U-Sncrlua« Held tv Be a Faotor In the
involution of Clunt f.ir,..
Some objectiou has been made, and
apparently v/itlt some weight, that the
modern doctrine of the evolution of
plants, baaed ou selfuhness, is not by
any menna the rule prevailing in vege
tation — Bowers, as well as members of
the animal world, scorn to he governed
lv quite as great a part by self-sacrifice
as by eeiiishness, says Meehaii'a
Monthly, Though the struggle for life,
as it is culled, and the ■"survival of the
fittest" must have something to do with
the evolution of form, and must be
neceaaarv to the existence of plants in
dividually, yet it is evidently not co
to all. In human nature seltisbneßS is
i. trait wbioh cannot, bs left uncultivat
ed. At the same time a large part of hu
meri nature finds just as much pleasure
iv little deeds wuich must come under
the claaa of islf-iaorißoe aa in the pur
suit of anything that may have relation
to tiie struggle for existence. Aa au
illustration oi this poiut in plants, the
production of turpentine by the south
ern pine tresi cornea in. If the piue
trees are left alone the production of
turpenifne ia comparatively email, but
when tapped aud made to produce the
turpentine for the beuedt of man it
goea on producing without the tree in
the least auP.Vring. The annual pro
duct of turpentine by the southern pine
trees is soma $10,000,000, which it
eeerna to baud over 10 the usea of man
without ttie slightest injury to itself,
(n no way can it ba shown that the pro
duction of turpentine ia a benefit to the
pine tree.
MILITARY STORES IN PARIS.
Th« French Capital Oould Mot Again Be
Htarvari luto Onpltalatlon.
Should the fortunes of war ever again
expose the city of Paris to the hardship
of a siege the besieger would find the re
duction of the French capital to be a far
mare difficult undertaking than did the
German armies In the winter of 1870-71.
It may, according to the 'Philadelphia
Record, ba doubted whether tbe oity
could ever again be compelled to ca
pitulate. Tbe fall ef Paris, ac is well
known, was not aoeompliihed by the
German siege batteries, bnt the city was
starved int > submission. A recurrence
of such an emergency ie inppoted te
have been made practically impossible
by the development of the art of pre
serving and compressing a great
variety of nutritions foods into
the smallest possible apace. Thus,
for example, 40,000 rations ef pre
served vegetables can be plaoed in a
cubic epace measuring only forty inches
each way, and million! of these rations,
together witb solid soups and preserved
meats, are conetarrtly kept ready for the
eventual necessity of tba military pro
visioning of Paris. An enormous stock
of tlonr and biscuits is always main
tained by the war department, while
the introduction of compressed fodder
and the silo system have facilitated the
storsgH of sufficient food for the horses
required by the cavalry as well as by
the omnibus and atreet railway com
panies. One of tbe gravest causes of
distress during tbe last siege of Paris
was tbe scarcity and poor quality of
milk. Such quantities of this indispen
sable article as could then be procured
were worth their weight in gold, and
tbe mortality among infants retnlting
from their deprivation of this necessary
food reeehed a ■ frightful rate, Io the
next Biege, however, milk will not only
bo plentiful, but very good, thanks to
Or. Antefage's process of "pasteurizing"
milk, which hae been adopted by tba
French government, and by whioh milk
can be preserved almost indefinitely ab
solutely pure and unaltered.
Twenty years ago the art of preserving
meat by mesne of cold storage was in
its infancy, but tbe French government
has fully availed itself of every improve
ment that hae been made in this direc
tion, and at tiie first Bign of impending
danger the authorities would be pre
pared to etore hundreds of thousands of
carcasses of beeves and mutton. Tbe
military magazines are always kept
filled, but at the approach of war the
numerous warehouses and bnildiags
which have been indicated for tbe pur
pose and prepared for the etorage of
provisions wonld be immediately
brought into requisition. By mesne of
the Fixary process dressed beef and
other meats can be kept sweet and fresh
for many months, and by new chemical
methods the storage rooms can be kept
cool without tbe use of ioe. In its oareful
preparation for the dire emergency of
hostile attack the French government
seems to have overlooked nothing; even
coal, wood, petroleum, chemicals and a
thousand other things have been pro
vided in ample quantities. It seems al
most impossible to believe that any fu
ture siege of Paris could be prolonged
until the war department should bave
exhausted its fabulous accumulations
of provisions, which are constantly
maintained at their proper level by re
newals of stock ac fast sb they are used
up. "The beet laid plans o' mice sad
mon," however, "gang aft a-glee."
