It is written by a staff representative who made an extend ed tour of the Pacific coast states,and Ins story is written from an impartial stand point. He says: Nevada has the smallest population of any state in the union. It is the only state west of the Allegheny mountains Which has ever shown a record of decreas ing population. And yet perhaps no state could more easily develop its re sources and swell (he number of its in habitants. The greatest lack in Nevada in the lack of public spirit. It lias been said so many times that tli6 state is worthless that a large majority of its peo ple appear to believe it. The strangest thing about the whole matter is that everybody thinks the restoration of her prosperity is to be secured only by tlie re vival of the old mining activity, anil yet anyone who takes this view must shut his eyes to facts written in legible char acters upon every page of Nevada's his tory. Such prosperity as the mining in dustry alone can confer upon a state Ne vada has enjoyed beyond all other locali ties. Did it make her rich? No, it made her poor. Her wealth was steadily drained to build palaces in San Francis co, New York and London, and to re cruit the waning fortunes of unworthy foreign aristocrats. The world needs both precious metals, but mining made Nevada neither rich, nor populous, nor respected. And yet Nevadans as a people see nothing in this world to hope for, or work for, except the return of tho good old mining days. Nevada has built enough palaces in distant cities. What she needs now is to build humble houses by the thousand in her beautiful valleys. There is a world of truth in the above. There was a limo when a farmer was sat isfied to raise but one crop, be it wheat or corn or fruits. Nowadays the tend ency is toward a diversity of crops. The principle involved is that the conditions which bring about a crop failure of one product may be just what was needed to give an abundant yield of another. What is true in the instance of the individual farmer holds good with tho community, also with the state. There was a timo when California de pended largely on her gold mines for her wealth. Had she stuck to mining as her one vocation she would today be in prac tically the same position as Nevada. It is tho great diveisit\\of her products that makes California the wealthy state she is and that gives her rank as a commer cial state of importance. To come a little nearer to home, what would Los Angeles .Amount to if she depended upon miners ♦for her trade? I'nder present conditions Bhe has developed into one of the moat beautiful and prosperous cities not only !■ California, but in the United States. It would pay the hoards of trade in Ne vada to send delegates to Los Angeles to take a few object lessons. THE QOOI) WORK GOES ON Tho New York World, in a iecent issue, gave a detailed account of increase of wages of over 2.">0,00U workmen, and all operative within the past thirty days. The largest body of employees mentioned in the tabulated statement was the Carnegie combined mills at Pittsburg, numbering 30,000 men, and who received an increase of 10 per cent. The greatest advance was tbat of tbe Pittsburg Iron Mills company of Pittsburg, toe employees of which were advanced 'Jo per cent. Il is a cur ions fact that the iron and cotton fabric industries havo furnished fully nine tenths of tlio examples of improvement. This would show that the movement is not as yet a general one. However, tlie two industries that have first felt the im proved business conditions aie always re garded ns trodo barometers, and therefore are good indexes to the situation, In addition to this it is shown that no less than 227 factories which had been closed ou account of dud times were re opened, giving employment to .VkOOO men. The Mahoning valley coke workers have been advanced a second time and are now working on the scale ir. force be fore the panic. The outlook is full of promise, and we will undoubtedly exper ience a gradual revival of business in all lines of trade, and the prosperous days ol "befoje the panic" will return. SLT; HOW WE UROW Thofigures and statements lurnisbed by Charles L. Strange, oity superintendent of buildings, make a remarkable show ing, and one of which every Southern Califomian should bo proud. Out i a selected list of ten representative citlcß, Los Angeles stands at the head oi the list as.regards the value of the building per mits issued. Under some circumstances audi a comparison might not be of value. But in this instance the cities selected are representative ones of their particu lar section; they are St, Paul, Pittsburg, Cincinnati, New Orleans, Washington, Kansas City, Minneapolis and Denver. Now St. l'aul and Minneapolis arc win le aalc centers for a populous section; Pitts burg is the blacksmith shop of thu whole Country, its workmen being among the best paid in the country ami should be classed ns "home builders." And thus ere might go through the whole list and Show that each city has some siecial reason why it should make a j;ood showing in the aggregate of building per mite for any given month. Yet l.os An geles stands at the head of tlie list with a total of $863,900, and Bt. Paul next, $357, - 225. In connection with this it might ad ded that f.,os Angeles never stood still. It has eviu- been a continued movement forward. It is doubtful if there is anoth er city of its size-in tbo United States that can make the showing that Los An geles can for expansion and development, particrdarly during tho past two years, which, were the most discouraging ones this country has seen in many a; day. Tn fjict, one would never know from look in £ at the record oi l.os Angeles that tljero was a panic in MOSa TOO MUCH STREET SPRINKLINO The thousands of bicyclists of this city are entitled to consideration hy the auth orities and in one particular should have their interests looked after at once; that s In tho oonstanl, unnecessary inunda tion of tno streets hy sprinkling carts. On the paved streets this is as annoying to pedestrians as to wheelmen, for the result is a coating of mud 'equally ob jectionable to wtilk through as to ride over. On the graded roads half the amount now used would unswer all pur poses. Bicycles hafS come lo stay; they are used by men in ail walks of life, and tbe ladies lind them as much of a necessity as a powder rag or the Friday Morning club. Attention to the rights of those who use tliem is not favoring any class, for they are the most democratic institu tion of the tiroes. Therefore it := tbo duly of those In authority to see that good roads aro kept up, and that this dangerous nuisance of too much water be abated. There will be a wheelman's voto to be considered hereafter. Verb. sap. A SIGN OF THE TIMES Senator Do Bois and lus band of free silverites failed to make very much of an Impression on the National Republican I, eague convention. Because the conven tion threw the question over its shoulder by referring the mnttor to another body, thl" misguided senatjr and his friends claimed a freo silver victory. As a mat ter of fact, it was anything but that. However, it is one of the signs of the times which go lo prove that hy the time the nationsil conventions of the two great parties are held free silver will be a dead issue with either party. Tho free silver craze was born of the panic of '98 and at a tinio when the nation was ready to take almost any "quack remedy" that gave hopes of relief. Now that labor is being inoro widely employed, farmers getting more for their products and an era of prosperity in sight, nnd the masses of the people have had time to think over mat ters, ii is an undeniable fact that the free silver crusado is tOMiig ground. By an other yoar it will be a dead issue with all except the side-show parties. CURRENT COMMENT Norway is now seeking deliverance from tho rule of Sweden. Naturally" enough, she sends representatives to this country to raise a subscription fund to hep out in the coming struggle. When ever any of the old countries feel that tbey want 1 iborating the Vnited States is looked upon as a fertile field in which to raise the sinews of war. And wnat is more surprising is that the people ap pealed to always respond. The Examiner lias scored a hit in its fiiud for food and shelter for tire suffer ers. In less than three day 554531.20 was collected, and as that amount is consid ered sufficient to carry out the Exam iner's plan, tho subscription lists have been closed. This only proves how quick and bow ready the American people are to respond when the cause is a worthy one. The object of this fund is to pro vide immediate shelter for destitute tire .sufferers and to procure tools (fer worthy workmen. It seems that some one in San Diego had a neat schema for raising money to build a home for mediums. The scheme was nipped in the bud by tho postal au thorities. That's too bad. San Diego does need a home for fakirs. The United States department of agri culture devotes bulletin No. 15 to protec tion from lightning. It may be read witn interest in some places, but Californians can congratulate themselves that they havo no reason to be interested In the sub ject. The best part of the advance of wages which many workmen are now enjoying is in the fact that it all came about with out a strike or even the use of a walking delegate. One of the signs of the times is seen in the continued improvement in the clearing house reports. For some tlmo past each week's clearings show a marked increase over the corresponding week of last year. liven Uncle Sam rebels against paying the excessive charges of tlio telephone companies. The Mare Island navy yard is to have a system of its own. San Luis Obispo wants to submit to a voto of ihe people the question of dis incorporation. San Diego is keeping up with tho times by having a board of education circus. REPORTER WARREN Redlands Cltrograph: Reporter Warren of The Los Angeles Herald has been lined (200 bj Judge Clark of tbe superior court for contempt of thai BTJgust body. War ren was detailed to get himself commit, ted to the Highland insane asylum that lie might write it up. Warren got himself arrested by playing crazy, but was de tected before commitment. Hence the "contempt." It looks as if the judge was a little off. Warren did nothing more than lias been dono scores of times and is being done every day. It is the only way tbe inside history of public institutions can be made public. We do not believe the supreme court will sustain this judi cial decision. Norwalk Call! Harry Warren, the Herald reporter, refuses proffered freedom and proposes to stay through the proceedings. It appears Judge Clark ' had it In for him." so no amount ol arguments or affidavits would avail In Ihe case To use a common ex pression, he'd had it all "cut and dried" tor Warren, even c xpresslng li'mself bo before the trial came off. ft seems that Judge Clark was completely laken in by a newspaper reporter and felt chagrined thereat, ami proposed to get even with 1)1 Ul. We are inclined to think lie was a little hasty and severe, hut of courso we may be mistaken, lie seemed to have placed a broader construction npon the meaning of the term contempt of court than the code docs.

JTTLY 2, 18W TO THE EDITOR [The Herald under this Reading prints com munications, but (toes not assume responsi bility ior ibe sentiments expressed,) Woman's Suffrage Editor Herald:—lt was With pleasure that tho writer.some time since read an editorial in The Herald entit'ed Women and Consistency. There can be no rea sonable objection to criticism when it is offered lo n spirit of fairness and sincer ity, a spirit seldom manifested by those who oppose ths onfram hisemont of wo men. Aml the crtiicism releried lo was the more particularly gratifying from the fact that it is such a rare occurrence in the experience of woman suffragists to oee the subject treated fairly, or even with duo regard to common courtesy. The writer agrees with Tho Herald in thinking that the ouly legitimate claims for the right of suffrage are tliQse based on the theory of this government and constitutional law. At least these are arguments which, if sustained; should not be ignored. No American ought to refuse to woman rights based on tho same principles as those on which ho claims his rights and privileges. Since, however, menlhave not been willing to ac cept constitutional authority, but contin ually object on grounds of expediency to women having the use of the ballot, it has seemed to be necessary to meet their objections with such arguments as those who do not accopt constitutional arguments mny npprenhite. But I will say tins, Mr. Editor: If you can lind a gentleman or lady who will agree to discuss the cjuostioti of woman's right to the ballot on constitutional ground alone it will give the writer pleasure to discuss it with him or her, and she will only be too happy to confine herself to the foundation principles of this government ond constitutional law. M. V. L. The Old Sad Story Editor Herald:-When I read Mr. Bar ber's letter in the Herald relating to the social evil, Hood's pathetic lines came to mo: Alas ' for the rarity Of Christian charity Under the sun! Ol it was pitiful! Iv a wholo city full Homo she had none! Sisterly, brotherly. Fatherly, motherly Feeiings had changed. > , Love by harsh evidence Thrown from its eminence, Even God's providence Seeming estranged, I'erishing gloomily, Spurned by contumely, Burning insanity, Cold inhumanity, Into her rest! Cross her hands humbly, JVs if praying dumbly, Over her breast 1 Owning her weakness, Her evil behavior. And leaving with meekness Her sins to her Saviour. The above poem was inspired by the suicide of a wretched woman in London, deserted by society and hunted by the offi cers of the law and the olliccrs of the Church of England. It is simply impos sible to reconcile any hunt of theso poor creatures in our midst with the teachings of Christ. If Mr. Barber knows anything he knows tli3re are not Magdalen homes enough in all California to accommodate one-tenth of the fallen women in Los Angeles alone. It. is with deep disgust that people gen erally look upon these clerical individ uals. When they commence to pet out their whips and chase ont of their temples the mammon worshipers who floclt there, then the great public will more ap preciate their raids noon poor fallen wo men. JAMBS W. CAWSTON. HOW THE EDITORS VIEW IT Lord Salisbury, summoned by the queen,refuses to assume the task of form ing a ministry, because he cannot secure from Lord Roscbiry and the Liberal party assurances that supplies will be voted to maintain the credit of the new govern ment until the marquis thinks the time ripe for an appeal to the country. The Liberals likewise declined to agree to the return of his cabinet minsters without op position. There is but one course open. The queen will summon Lord Rosobery and ask him to continue the government. According to unwritten laW this will pre cipitate immediate dissolution. The Liberal programme was to ijive the reins into the hands of Lord Salisbury and compel him to announce a definite policy for his government. In refusing to grant his requests the Liberals have blundered. They have surrendered every advantage to Salisbury. In the elections, soon to come, his followers will attack and the Liberals must defend. The plans of their opponents are unknown lo them be cause of tue stupid action ot the Liberal leaders. The Conservatives will rout them, horse, foot and artillery, and it is certain, as The Traveler stated a few days ago, that the new Tory government will have a long lease of lifo before it.— Boston Traveler. Lord Salisbury seems to have fallen into trouble at the outset of his return to power. At least, so this morning's pa pers inform us, and tney know a great veal about such things. It seems that the English pieinier is pursuing tbe tac tics not strange or unknown in the public affairs of Alameda—that ot 'firing out" officials because they espoused the cause of the opposition, aiid because lie wanted to reward his henchmen with their places. Mr. Campbell-Hannerman. secre tary of state for war. was asked to turn over the seals of 1 is oflice, which was not unlike demanding of Mr. Harliourne his keys and his resignation. Mr. Oampocll- Banneiman refused to deliver his seals, and now the incident furnishes a sensa tion in the British empire, just as the library incident convulsed Alameda. Which goes to show that there is a way to do things. -Alameda Argus. lit course, Lord Salisbury's real objec tion to taking power is that bis party will enter upon the coming elections with bet ter chances as an opposition party, re sponsible for nothing, than as a party in power, responsible for whatever the gov ernment may do until the dissolution of parliament, ami with a more Important responsibility for what may occur aft:.'r the dissolution and before the elections.— New York Times. Lord Rosebery has resigned. Even the son-in-law of Rothschild couldn't run the English government any longer on a gold basi*. The country was losing nil its trade with tho free siiver countries, ami that was the greater bulk of England's foreign trade.—Portland Sun. Present indications are that it would have been much better for Salisbury and the Conservatives to havj borne the ills tbey bad than to have Mown to clhurs they knew not of.—Salt Lake Tribune. Tbe situation in Great Britain nt pres ent is one that could never be duplicated in America—one party anxious to go out and the other party unwilling to come in.—New York World. Gladstone is still a power in Enslish politics. The grand old man withdrew his support from Rosnbery's ministry and the premier resigned—PaUbrook Observer. Lord Rosebery will stand out in history as a good fellow who made rather an in different premier.—Kansas City Star.

The refreshments wero served in a spacious room on the second lloor which was made more effective with pink gladioli and roses. Conspicuous among tho decorations was a large floral valise, composed of white carnations and gypsy felloe. Attached to this we're long streamers of pink satin ribbon.

It is to the effect that a modest and charming young sooiety lady in riding near Aliso, attrac ted the attention ot a wreck of a dissolute old woman who, gasing scornfully at her bloomers, remarked with exceeding em phasls: 4 "Well, you ought to be ashamed of^yoursclf!" And it is further related that tbe laay's consternation almost caused her to reel and faint at tho woman's denunciation, and she was some time getting her para lyzed nerves together again.

And what opin ions and what perpetrations some of tnem are The American Wheelman, on the subject, says "Katiunal," oh what sins are commit ted in thy name. Let a woman seeker after notoriety ol tho cheapest character array herself in a suit tbat is not only a disgrace to hcrsolf but to the community that allows'Jt, and immediately it Is char acterized "rational."and great is the crit icism thereof. As a matter of fact, over done rational costumes are as much to be regrotted us too much cycling. The new cycling costume was inaugurated because it was essential to comfort on tho wheel. When first suggested tbat fact alone was sought-for, but after the first move had been made it was then iniprovnd un til now wo have prettier cycling suits of knickerbockers and bloomers than could be possible under the old regime. Wom en, nioro than anyone else, appreciate Young's words that "women were made to give onr eyes delicti: a female sloven is an odious sight." With the present styles there can be few "odious sights." ft ft ft The women of the southern states have been much slower than their northern sisters in the utilization of the bicycle. They are affected by the conservatism of the south, which looks askance nt a novel ty, and,very many of them yet think that bloydingpl highly improper for a woman. Wo havo frequently noticed remarks to this effect in southern papers, and we re cently learned that women In several places there had been brought under so cial discipline for bicycling. Tbe prodig ious cycling boom of this year has already told unon the south. By this time there are lots of women bicyclers in Virginia and Georgia; there are a small number in Alabama and Louisiana: there are fewer yet in South Carolina; there nre very fe.v in Arkansas; we bave not board of any in Mississippi; the northern women in Flor ida have introduced tho wheel there. Wo do not believe that the conservatism of southern women can much longer resist the wheel; tbe Texas and North Carolina girls seem ready for it; we think it is hound to attract the fair sex even in tho ilayoti state.—Argonaut. ft ft ft She may wear bloomers, she may wear skirts , But every graceful move nsserts That sho levels in perfect health; She tills her lungs with tbe pure spring air.
