GIVE US DIRECT AND DECENT ROADS One would hardly expect that parlia mentary czar, Tom Reed of Maine, to be interested in good roads, unless it be those leading to the White House. But this "magazine bimetallist and legislative gold bug" as Congressman Bryan aptly designates him, has been sufficiently in terested to evolve souie very sensible ideas regarding the subject. In an ad dress before tbe students of a business college of Philadelphia, treating of va rious forms of wealth, he referred to bignways and their importance, in the following language: "One of tbe greatest civilizers of the world Is something we hardly think of, either as a civilizer or as wealth—the com mon country road. Few people ever think how much roads cost us. They represent tbe surplus labor of centuries. *"fhey make possible the transfer of the abundance of one rcgiou to supplement tbe want oi another. And yet the modern mad. crossing the country in all direc tions, traversible by carriages and carts, us well as beasts, does not go back to the times of good Queen Bess. Indeed, in her reign, thousands might starve and did Starve in one county, while abundance tilled tbe granaries of the others. "Think of men and women and children starving from mere lack of that form of wealth which we call roads in the days when Drake and the great captains were scouring the seas in search of the Span ish galleons and Spanish gold, and when tbe military might of England hurled back tbe Spanish armada and all the power of the geatest nation on the face of tbe globe. In the very heart of Lon don, in tbe street named after the kin himself, tbe only way one of the Ed wards could get to his parliament was to fill with great bunches of fagots the boles in the streets." There are some truths suggested in these remarks that the people of Los An geles county should take home and culti vate the acquaintance of. This county needs a more practical and better kept system of roads, absolutely and imme diately. To a large extent the produc tiveness of our soil and the intelligently applied energies o! our people are nulli fied by tbe indirect and shockingly kept route- they are obliged to take in getting their products to market. The actual sav ing in dollar and cents that would be permitted with a system of highways tbat rendered unnecessary long detours from a reasonably direct line in jour neying from point to point, and that al lowed the attainment of a decent speed without ruining the horseflesh, breaking the wagon gear, or jolting one's teeth out. would pay many times over for scientifically laid out and decently main tained roads. And to those owning land in the country only as speculators and not as users,the pecuniary value of direct and decent roads .should be easily apparent. Tbe price they will get for their holdings largely depends on the ease and prompt itude with which the intending in vestor can be shown the property. S'oth ing is so discouraging to a man coming probably from some old and well kept part of the east, as to be drawn in winter through six to twelve inches of simon pure slush or mud, and in summer be yanked fiom one chuckhole into another. Tbe prospect of having to experience this ■cries of vicissitudes as a regular thing, should he buy a property thus located, is enough to deter the most sanguine of cus tomers, ff we are civilized people let us have civilized ways from the city to the farm. THE REAL FUNCTION OF MONEY There is a ileal of misunderstanding . and dense ignorance concerning tbe im portance of money. It is a common tiling to hoar people talk about money as if it were the ultimate object for whicli men are striving. But it is not. Nobody really works for money. The thing culled money is simply a medium of exchange, a convenience, of course, especially in small transactions. People could live with out money, but ihey could not live with out the things for which money is ex changed. Money is a measure of value; but money itself has no value, except as • means for tbe accomplishment of an end. Gold and silver coins have intrinsic value only in the metal, which is a value independent of their money value, and which would exist without the legal tender quality imparted by legislation. Merely as money no dollar can benetit a man except by his parting with it. It is not wealth, but is simply the repre sentative of wealth. " Which is the*"more important, a measure of value, or value Itself? A repicscntative of wealth, or wealth itself? A yardstick, or the cloth Vhich the yardstick measures? While a judicious system of finance should be the aim of a civil government it il ol luinoi importance compared with the question of squelching gigantic mo nopolies and giving labor tbe benefit of unrestricted opportunities. Editor Watson of the Redlands Cricket, with tbe heroism characteristic of the true journalist, bas gone to jail rather than pay a fine imposed because he re fused to pungle up for an outrageous busi ness license. The sympathy of the fra ternity be with him. Tbis particular kind of license tax is the most pestiferous, un just and impolitic of all tbe small schemes devise J to make the earning of a living difficult, and it should go in stanter. The next Paris exposition will have a novelty even more remarkable than the Eiffel tower. It will be a great hole in tbe ground a mile long, or deep, just as you may wish to express it. There will be several stopping places or galleries in tbe shaft, each of which will represent some phase of life above the surface. It is probable that the Parisians, realizing the futility of attempting to reach heaven after trying the tower, have decided to strike ior the other place. Our dispatches of yesterday announced that the wages of 200 employees of the Delaware iron works of Wilmington. Del aware, had been advanced voluntarily, 10 percent. The employees were surprised. It is natural they should lie. The last twenty-live years has accustomed them to the idea that tbe only time wages are dis turbed is when they are reduced. We would suggest that what our Republican friends term the "Gorman free trade" tariff measure is still in force. From May loth to May 30th the metrop lis of the Pacific coast is to dispense with electric and gas lighting for its streets, and trust to the moon. This return to aboriginal illumination should materially assist the project of the Half Million club. The latter can certainly influence the outside barbarians to flock to a city so cheaply and reliably lighted. The sale of Coin bas been so enormous that Mr. Harvey, its author, is making from $400 to jiiOO a day. This shows pretty clearly what the people in tbe country think about tbe currency. — New York World. It also shows pretty clearly that ;he late P. T. Barnura knew what he was talking about when he said. "The greater the humbug, the better the American people like it. HUSICAL NOTES Tlie big organ for the Simpson church has come, has been heard, and is cer tainly better in most respects than any other organ in the city. Whether it is the acoustics or the rela tive size of house and organ it is hard to tell, but for some reason its upper tones sound thin; they are sweet, however. Its middle and lower tones are mellow and rich, and the harmony and power of the full chorus is beautiful, yet there is no irresistible magnetism about the in strument that takes hold of one and cur ries him out. of himself. Mr. Stewart's performances were ex re] tionally tine,his management of stops, his pedaling and his whole handling was piasterly. In the Mendelssohn F minor sonata some of the best work of the even ing was done, especially in the last two movements. Of the two numbers by Dubois, a Cantilena and a Toccata, the latter received dainty treatment, and the former was melodiously sweet. Far away the gem of the whole even ing, however, was the Bach fantasia and fugue. In it Mr. Stewart showed what theie was in him and in tbe organ too. His pedaling was superb, and the waiving and unweaving of the various themes was kept most admirably and distinctly in evidence. The Beethoven andante with variations was read with a simple dignity that makes it the powerful composition it is. and the A major polonaise by Chopin re ceived brilliant treatment. When Mr. Stewart entered > play Gounod's process ional march, The last on the pro gramme, he must have been charmed to see the general movement by a large per centage of the audience toward the doors, and the remainder sat and were walked Upon and over by the impatient ones. Of the vocal music. Mr. and Mrs. Modini Wood, Mrs. Kempton and Dr. Sender each contributed his and her share. Neither Mr. nor Mrs. Wood have ever sung better here than they did last night, and Mrs. Wood's tirst solo, the de licious Intemezzo from Cavalleria Rusti cana. accompanied by Mrs. Larrahce with tbe piano, Mr. Stewart, the organist. Mr. Lowinsky, violin, and Mr. Bierlich, cello, was so beautiful that a Moral crown of yellow marguerites was presente I and an encore w:is demanded, when she sang Heauty's Eyes, by Tosti. Mr. Wood's solo was Heaven and Earth by Piusuti. tor which Mr. Lowinsky played a Violin obligato. A duet by Mr. and Mrs. Wood. Millet's FA Van, was also encored, as was Costa's Sad Moments of Parting, a quartette, sung by Mes damea Wood and Kempton, Mr." Wood and Dr. Semler. Tbe audience was large and more demonstrative for the vocal than the in strumental numbers, and tho church was decorated with Ivy and cut Mowers. • E. M. 0. AHUSEHENTS ORPHEUM.—Tbo house was packed to the doors, every loge und b I was filled, and a fringe of standing but widely sinn ing eentlcmen ornamented the rear wall Monday night for Aluldoon's Picnic. Not chat the standing contingent were the only ones who smiled; the whole house was in a roar most of the time. There wat very liitle picnic about it, but there was a great deal of Muldoon and more of MuJcahey. ond that is all that is neces sary when they are in the clever bunds of Tom Nawn and Johnny Hay. They are so entirely different that they make excellent foils for each other, and yet botli are extremely good. Nawn is the quiet, self-contained Irishman with gen tlemanly Instincts, a rich but hot over whelming b'ogue. and a tendency to light that is held down ly sheer force of will. Hay's irlsbman, on the contrary, is the lurid, aguressive kind, with a bas ketful of chips on either shoul der, and a make-up and gait that are infectious and irresistible. llis brogue was dry and unctuous and his facial expression us good in Its way as Mr. Nawirs—more cannot be said for it. The picnic was cither an afterthought, or else wus forgotten early and remembered late. Everything happens in and about Michael Muldoon*s residence, and there is very little of the time that something isn't happening. Tbe skating act be tween Muldoon and Mulcahy was screamingly funny and tlie hit of the evening. of thu other business was new, original and clever, and the rest of the people played around Nawn und Kay with considerable success. The Hinns and limns introduced their clever mu sical skit,ami Mr. Stuart sang a number of soiil's With the same success that attended bis efforts last week. Mr. John E. Drew also sang and did some double shuffles and breakdowns, and Flynn ami Meßride gave a song and dance. The Picnic runs all the week and Saturday matinee.

ECHOES FROM LA FIESTA The Director General Submits a Statement PRONOUNCED A SUCCESS Direct and Indirect Results of Great Good Shall the Next Oreat Festival Be Held Under the Auspices of the Merchants' Association Max Meyberg, as director general of La Fiesta, bas prepared and submitted to the directors of tlie Merchants' association a statement of the expenditures incurred in the recently held festival, a copy of which is here given. LOS ANGELES, May 14, 1895. To the Directors of the Merchants' As sciation:—lt gives me pleasure to present to your body today a synopsis of ex penses of our late festival, tabulated in systematic order. It will give you a clear idea of the expenditures. Included in these expenses are the material and labor for the construction of the seats which were sold to the public during the proces sions, amounting to $5704.73; also, gaso line reflector for illuminating the floats, 1044.92; total. (6840 «5. These properties are safely stored, and with comparatively little "cost can be used again at future celebrations. I now take the opportunity to point out some facts whicli in my opinion should be of great sitisfaction to you. The festival given practically by the merchants of Los Angeles, and under your supervision, has been a suc cess as a financial proposit on. R.inging to our city, according to conservative es timates, no less than .'IS.OOO to 40,000 visi tors during the festival week, who left with us at least $600,000, which bas been distributed among a great number of our citizens. It has given Los Angeles a rep utation for enterprise ami push which cannot be paid for. The advertisements, through newspapers, throughout the en tire United States, giving a glowing de scription of our festival, will draw atten tion to our city, which is invaluable, and its good effects should henceforth be taken advantage of by our citizens. The expenses, abrogating 181.000, have been distributed in our city among all classes, and one particularly' gratifying item is that labor has received the greatest bene fit. A total of $12,606.46 lias been paid for labor directly; indirectly, to $3000 more. Another noteworthy fact should instill pride Into the hearts of our community. I refer to the concerts given under your supervision. As an object lesson of poa sibilities for this city none can demon strate more forcibly that this city can be made the center of music and art: that with proper assistance our future attrac tions as a city should proclaim to the world that in this city civilization can tind all that makes life agreeable and in structive. Wo k can supplement nature, wbich has given us a climate unsurpased in the worid, with such attractions which will bring to us a large class of people who will make this city their home for such reasons only. The commencement is made; we have brought together our music-loving citizens; they should com bine and form one great musical society, if necessary under your protection,which could be made sell-sustaining through a series of concerts. The Hower procession which was a rev elation to us all, will stimulate the love and cultivation of particular Mowers suit able for such purposes, thus making this pari, of our celebration the principa 1 feature* We must not forget that we have in this particular sentiment the en tiro state as competitor next year and it is therefore necessry for our citizens to form ideas early and thus individually assist in upholding the blub standard of excellence of our attractive parade. The main issue before you must be your outspoken sentiment us to whether* the next La Fiesta shall he held under your auspices or not.. I call attention to this adviseuly, for the reason that it must now be understood who will undertake the task. If you should decide not to do so. it would be just courtt sy to call v meeting and allow the citizens to decide what notion is necessary to perpetuate La Fiesta de Los Angeles. To drop our celebration would be a crime to all who love this city, who delight in the knowl edge that we have received the plaudits of visitors, who are impressed not alone with the excellent character of our cele bration, but also witn the magnilicent be havior ot our citizens on occasions when rowdyism could have been expected. It placed our citizens on a high level of in telligence and good common sense, pro ving to tbe world that I.os Angeles is an ideal city. In conclusion I thank you all for the confidence you have reposed in me and for tho pleasant manner of sustaining my efforts to make La Fiesta de Los AngeUs the succ(ss it has been. In behalf of my successor, should you decide to conduct tbe Fiesta of IMO and appoint a director general. I respectfully urge you to make such appointment as soon as practicable, an early choice being absolutely necessary. As a novice he must have time to think and lay out his plans for future action. With best A-ishes for the successful con tinuanoe of La Fiesta de Los Angeles, I remain yours truly, MAX MEYBERG, Director General.

THE ALEX DOCTER CASE Finally Goes to Trial—Detective Bosqui Testifies The Defense Is Using Every Means to Clear the Former Popular Young Salesman The noted Alex Docter case has finally come to the superior court. Tbe details of Docter's escapade are still fresh in the minds of all; how he took 13600 of Moso Gunst's money and skipped to New York with a fair damsel of this city and was there apprehended through the efforts of Detective Bosqui and finally returned here. Then he told a very nice fairy story of now he had been to Paris with his charmer and rolled them high in that city noted for high rollers, which story was all taken as the truth by those not on the inside, but the plain facts will likely leak out yet, as tho case progresses. Several witnesses were examined yestar day, the principal ones being Datective Bosqui and Mose Ounst, and M. L. Polaski. It seems that Docter still lias a very decided pull, as the detective testi fied that Docter and his friends had bim fired from the police force of this city. Just what effect that pull may bave re mains to be seen In the result of the trial. The jury iv the case is composed of George il. Frost, Charles H. Gardiner, James F. Banning, B. E. Koyce, James Loosemore, W. Ij. Dalton, W. H. Carv, J. O. Lamb, Thomas H. Abbott, P. \V. Partridge, Frank Uerliner and C. I. Mc- Intyre. The case will be resumed this morning at lv o'clock. Ladles' Night at the Y. M. C. A. Last night was ladies' night at the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium, and the usual large audience was present. Professor Bessing led Lis class in the dumbbell drill, after ■which smafl groups were formed for special work. Mr. C. Mader gave an exhibition of In dian club swinging that was loudly ap plauded; J. MurEetta and \Y. Mader had a wrestling mutch In which tbere were some very good throws, and after choos ing sides the class had lively game of basket ball. A little individual work on the part of tbe members followed.

The house was charmingly decorated witb a wealth of beautiful roses. Io the deep embrasure of the window of the drawing room was a large bank of wliito roses with trailing branches laden with blossoms falling gracefully to either side. Roses were over windows* and on the mantel, arranged with artistic grade. In the library and dining room pink and dark red roses were used effectively. The entertainment of tho evening was rare—in tiie high standard of the pro gramme selected and the artistic render ing of each number. It is seldom in a private house that professionals of such ability antl reputation can be heard. A spacious room on the second story of the house was converted into the dining room and here' were placed small tables, on which tempting refreohments were served.

Mrs. Kevins anu Mrs. (,'hapin, both of missionary fame and so well known in Los Angeles for their good works, made earnest appeals to the ladies present for their encouragement and financial help in carrying on the mis sionary work in Japan and China. Mrs. Nevins told briefly of this great need of Obristian help in* a land that religiously is in the grossest darkness.
