FUNDAMENTAL FACTS
Thinking people ar* gradually discover
Ing tbat tba only way in which wealth in
any form ever was or ever can be pro
duced ia by tbe application of laoor to
land. To the student of political economy
this is no * newly discovered truth. In
point of fact, it is as old as tbe human
race. Man, from the beginning, was
doomed to earn bis living by "the sweat
of his brow." But in order for him to
do so it was necessary that he should
have something to which his labor could
ba applied successfully, and so as to pro
dace such things as he might need. Tbis
want was aupplied even before man first
made his appearance on tbis planet. Tbe
sartb is a vast store bouse, containing all
the raw material requisite for man's use.
By tba application of human effort to tbe
•xbaastless and diversified raw materials
provided by the creative power, man can
live in this world and be fairly bappy.
By moving, separating, changing, com
bining and modifying ths materials pro
vided for his use, man readily produces
everything needful for bis earthly comfort
and enjoyment.
But suob tilings are produced only by
bringing together the tno primary factors
in wealth production—land and labor.
In so far as those.factors are Kept apart
by human laws,to tbat extent production
is rendered difficult. Capital comes in as
a secondary factor in wealth production;
but capital is simply stored or crystal
lized labor; a form of wealth used in aid
ing labor to produce more wealth. Capi
tal is the product of labor and it is em
ployed by labor, instead ot capital being
the employer of labor, as many suppose.
Both capital and labor are essential to
rapid and satisfactory wealth production.
There is never any quarrel or struggle
between labor and capital except when
they are both being oppressed by thier
common ene.ny, monopoly. With tbat
enemy out of the way labor and capital
would always be harmonious.
With inexbsustible resources in na
ture's store bouse, and with plenty of
brain and muscle among the people,there
is no natural cause for involuntary idle
ness and poverty. The cause that pro
duces sucb results should not be charged
to fate, nor to any defect in natural con
ditions, nor to "divine Providence."
Tbe cause is in man-made laws and cus
toms, which in many respects are sadly
•t variance with natural laws.
- In view ot these fundamental economic
tacts it is clear that the ability of a man
to earn a living depends primarily on
tbe ease with which he can gain access
to nature's store house. Only by nis
labor, applied either directly or indirect
ly to land, tbe passive factor, cbm he pro
duoe those things which satisfy human
wants. If the store bouse is locked up,
and the keys are held by a few, it follows
tbat tbe masses must be placed at a seri
ous disadvantage. All men are not "cre
ated equal" in point of physical strength
or mental ability; but all are created
equal as to tbeir right to enjoy tbe
bounties of the Creator. That right
•omes with life itself, and is as sacred as
life.
It were well for everybody to frequent
ly recall tbe memorable words of Thomas
Jefferson, who said: "'Whenever, in any
country, there are idle lands and idle
men, it is clear tbat the laws ol property
have been so far extended as to violate
natural rights."
BUYINO AND SELLING
We would like to have some of our pro
tectionist contemporaries that seen so
grievously apprehensive for fear the
country will buy more tban it sells, ex
plain just bow the individuals, for mdl
vidoals,not catititries, trade, of a country
•an buy more than they sell. In other
words, ho* they can otiy without celling.
The fact that all trade ia mutual seems
beyond tha protectionists' capacity to
grasp. Tbey persist in viewing, whan
dicussing tbe general question of trade,
baying and selling as two separate ac
tons, wben really they constitute but one.
The terms are simply terras of conve
nience used todesignate a certain stsge
in the processes of trade. They desig
nate the money stage in trade, tbe period
wben one has parted with a product bnt
j has not yet received another product, but
! instead the representative of the other
product, money. Of course nob)dy over
stops at that stage of the game, but at
bis convenience the recipient of the
money converts it into the product it
stands for. Nobody takes money for its
own sake, but for what it will fetch in
tbe market. So wben the party who has
parted with property for money takes
the latter and gets other property with
it be bas traded just as effectively as
though be had taken this other property
at lirst and had seen no money wnatever.
The latter plays but the part of a coun
ter in tbe transsction. Being a sort of
order on the msrltets, it enables the
taker of it to exercise a wide choice in
what be shall select to compensate him
for the property he has psrted witn.
When ho makes tnst selsction ths trade
is complete. Hence it is a logical
absurdity to say that people buy more
than they sell, or vice versa.
WIDEN fiAIN STREET SOUTH
At Ninth and Tenth streets the three
principal thoroughfares of Los Angeles
meet and continue to and far beyond tbe
city limits as one street. In tbe present
business center Main .ml Spring streets
and Broadway have about all they can do
to comfortably accomodate their large
business. The certain growtn of the city
will require a larger business area, and
this in the nature of trecase must go
mainly southward. Wben solid business
blocKs extend to tbe meeting of oar three
great streets their extension by Main
street will be totally inadequate to servo
them or the interests of the city. Main
street should be widened to 103 feet from
Ninth street south to tbe city limits, and
by the supervisors far beyond. Main
street below Ninth and Tenth streets is
the shortest line into the city center from
any point it touches. In this respect it is
quite ('.iffeicnt from all the streets to the
west of it. Tbese run at an angle away
from the city center and not toward It.
For instance ttt Jefferson street Grand av
enue is next to Main, while at Second it
is live blocks to the west, llrosdway is
curved into Main at Tenth street; the
other streets between Grand avenue and
Main runout before reaching Jefferson.
No modem American city is so devoid
of any plan in its streets as is Los Ange
les. The city in tbis particular is like
Topsy, it just naturally growed. Every
property owner or real estate speculator
has laid oat streets to suit himself.
Streets run every wbicb way. Some are
numbered and soma ara not, some go a
short distance and atop forever.and soma
exist in scactersd fragments without con
nection, like portions of Flower street.
Tbis lack of plan and lack of foresight
can never ba tally cured. Tbis one point
of providing an adequate entrance to tbe
city from tba south can be cured by
widening Main strest aoutb of Ninth. It
can never be dona cheaper than now and
now is tba time to uo it. There is no
other improvement of equal importance
to be done today. Had there been an in
telligent forsesight anu plan of streets in
Los Angeles there never would have been
tbe present confusion of direction at tbe
western city limits, nor would the hill
district be disfigured and burdened by the
cuts, tills and grades that now handicap
its progress. Streets on contour lines
would bare held that section as the per
manent high grade residence section, witb
business tbotoughfares following its val
ley lines. Tbe bill section with its beau
tiful views and fine air will always be
popular in spite of its vandal street plan.
Tbe mistakes made should now ba recti
fied as far as possible. No one aot on this
line is of clearer need or of greater advan
tage than widening Main street below
Ninth.

MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT
BY ABBOT KINNEY
De Tocqueville was the clearest of the
early commentators on our institutions.
ho praised the strength of our local
self-government, especially the New Eng
land township organization. He was im
pressed with the soundness of our politi
cal foundations as shown in local affairs.
This local political unit was small. Pub
lic policy was determined, measures or
dered and officers selected in open meet
ing. At such meeting all citizens were
present and all could De heard. The pub
lic business and the conduct of public
officers was directly under the eye and
open to the question of every citizen.
Partisan political machinery was abso
lutely unknown.
The office sought the man. We note
i,i the New England township records
frequent fines on those who declined to
taae the public offices to which tbeir
fellows elected them. Public office was
then a duty and not a private privilege.
Immigration between 1650 and 1845 was
email. The American population taken
in districts was homogeneous. Trans
portation was difficult. Industry was lo
cal and iargely of the family. Testes
were simple. Religion was strong. The
integrity of the family complete.
At that time 3 per cent of tho Ameri
can people resided in towns of 80(10 or
more people.
Every one of these conditions has
changed, until today 30 per cent of our
people live in cities. Transportation and
banking wonderfully facilitate exchange.
Industry has become specialized. Pro
duction has incressed for cscb worker.
Wealtn is grest. Standards are high.
Simplicity is gone. Religion is weak and
the family as a political and industrial
unit is no more.
The increase of our population is no long
er from our own loins, but Is now due to
immigrants. These, with the versatile
and migratory tastes of our own native
born, have made our population less
homogeneous than it was. The federal
census shows .hat tbe copulation of
America owed its increaso largely in the
last decade to immigrants and not to
births over deaths.
We all desire increased population,
advertise for it,speculate on it and hurrah
when we get it. But we unite in letting
the other fellow provide the population.
We are desirous of increasing population,
but we are afraid to have children our
selves.
Our standards increase geometrically
while our means of attaining tbese grow
only arithmetically.
About 1834 the political partisan ma
china commenced its life. Now it domi
nates down to tbe election of a constable.
In our early history, and, in fact, to a
recent period the primaries and conven
tions that now rule ns politically ware
unknown. The Australian ballot law
and the Porter primary law are the lirst
laws tbat even indirectly recognize the
existence of these extra constitutional
methods.
Tlie real political government of tbis
country, the power that makes policies
and names our public officers, is the
cabal or boss of our political partisan
machine.
This power is without personal respon
sibility and exists independent ot the
popular will.
Its growth is dne to its advantage in
nsing the public business as a means to
serve private ambition or to increase
personal wealth at tha general expense.
Tbe political machine of our parties is
not of the people nor for the people.
It exists for private amis. It is no part
of our constitution and had no legal life.
It is absolutely irresponsible. Party pol
itics is v mere incident or tool of tbe
political machine.
| The New England township principle
of direct popular selection of ail execu
tive officers depends for its benefits upon
the immediate and direct control of the
public business by tbe entire body politic.
The general meeting of all citizens was
and is the only nnd solitary means of
selectlrg all subordinate executive officers
exclusively on public gronnds.
The growth and concentration of our
population creates conditions that render
the transaction of any public business
by means of a meeting of all voters en
tirely impracticable.
The history of the Roman republic
demonstrates the impossibility of an in
telligent, honest and patriotic conduct of
public affairs by tbe entire body of elec
tors when these become too numerous.
We bave insensibly drifted aboul for
a practical political application for
changed conditions, and have fallen into
our partisan machine organization.
Under this system party at once divides
us and the cleft goes from crown to heel,
from president to constable.
The party primary election Is the
means by which we man tbe convention.
This system nurses the party and the
faction. Tbe old township plan uniting
locally all citizens and recognizing no
party," has disappeared.
The effect of tbe politico! machine is to
transfer allegiance from the nation to the
party. No convention ever represents
the whole people, rarely even its own
party. The machine uses public office
lor patty reward ana tends to made
personal emoluments our dominating
political aim, and to diminish regard for
efficiency in the public business.
Two-thirds of the chief county and city
officers of Los Angeles do not perform
the duties of tbeir offices. Some of them
are unwilling to give an honest ana com
petent service. Indeed, competent ser
vice in public office is not now demand
ed, others are quite incapable of per
forming thc.r ufficial duties.
The total result of our political ma
chine method is an expensive and in
efficient government.
Our present system in state,county and
cily is cither without unity of plan and
action or else it is directed by political
combines like Tammany or the Kelly &
Crimmins Co. of San Frsnoisco, or ' by
bosses like Tweed, Buckley, or
Burns.
The sole object of such control of publio
business in public plunder. This is ob
tained by "patronage" and the taxing of
subordinate officers for their places, by
privileges sola to business men,to private
persons or to corporations and to the
blackmailing ana license of crime.
Besides this, all public supplies and
public work must pay a tribute that goes
to enrich the party faction or boss. The
character of the supplies or tho servioo
is secondary as compared to the gain of
the party machine or its ruler.
Tho overthrow of Tweed by Tilden and
the committee of seventy; Dr. Parkhurat's
work in New York; the Wallace grand
jury in San Francisco, and other sim-lar
investigations, show two things. First,
that our city governments are expensive
and inefficient. Second, the only present
remedy, like the political disease itself,
is always due to an extra legal method.
A committee of seventy, an elisor jury,
a citizens' league, a committee of safety
or something of the extra constitutional
kind, is what we have to look to either
to rid ourselves of tbe intolerable cost and
corruption of political machine methods
or to stop a reign of violence and crime
due to official incapacity, indifference
and sometimes sven to official support.
In riot and violence about our only
present reliance, in any legal political
sense is tbe federal army. Municipal
misgovsrnment baa proved incapable of
self-cure, or of defending the city against
the anarchists it helps to create. Our
city government is weak. It has no
unity of organization. It is without
power. If there is any power it is out
side of any legal government and rests
in a party organization. Every mnn in
our city government is weakened and
handicapped by the trading and self
seeking now un essential factor in ortica
holding.
The present primary and convention
System is the tool of those driven by am
bition fur power or seeking wealth at
public expense.
It is not popular government. It is
politicians' government. Persons aolert
us to be servsa. Wd do not selcet public
officers in the true sense. The best we
can say of our present politics is that
semi-occnstonally some strong man is
forced on the politicians and that where
partisanship is not too strong and party
majorities too large we may (elect be
tween One or two self-seeking officially
nominated politicians.
In local government, where De Tocqtte
ville praised us recent Impartial noservers
condemn. The condition of local govern
ment needs correction.
There is not a well-governed city in the
United States.
Municipal government in America ia a
failure.
If this condition is due to a moral in
capacity foi self-government in modern
Americans tbe days of Iree institutions
are ovei.
If it is due to an unworkable political
system totally unsuited to our recently
developed urban population then a change
of system may mean salvation.
A summary of the present situation aa
a plan and condition is about as follows:
Mayor elected ; powers, veto on legisla
tion overcome by two-thirds vote: ap
pointment of on 3or two minor cllicers
and sometimes of commissioners.
Has no executive power; no power of
removal from office for corruption or in
capacity; no power to unify or harmonize
an administration: no power to make
different departments work together and
consequently no power to make an econ
omical and efficient government.
The mayor has not this power. Neither
hns anybody else.
The mayor is tba official executive
head of tbe city government, yet has no
real executive power. He can hinder or
prevent legislation. Sometimes has votes
on commissions. His position in a gen
eral way is that of a scold.
The legislative power is generally con
fined to a council or legislative body.
This is, however, frequently modified by
more or less legislative action of various
councils.
The real executive in law is infinitely
subdivided among a number of elec
tive officers and a great number of com
missioners and officers sometimes ap
pointed by the council, sometimes by the
mayor and sometimes hy Ihe governor of
tbe state.
The whole scheme is a hopeless hodge
podge without head, tail or responsi
bility.
The officers and men in our city gov
ernments arc really not the ones to
blame. The defect is the system. With
the best men, under such a system, a
united and efficient government is not
possible. We must change the system of
city government in America.
It is proper to say tbat the present city
council of Los Angeles contains a num
ber of very conscientious ana capable
men.
TALE
BY BOABDIL
In last Sunday's issue of your paper
the writer said somewhat in regard to the
San Gabriel country east of tbe city. At
the time tbe writer wondered whether he
had overdrawn tbe picture, fearing that
personal enthusiasm might bare some
what clouded judgment. Happily for a
tender conscience, some friends of the
writer visited Alhambra and the valley
during tbe week, and assnie the writer
that they could only exclaim with the
queen of Sheba "that tbe half had not
been told." Very much nas been and is
being written about tho remarkable de
velopment of Southern California, and
throughout it all there runs a sugges
tion of surprise. To one wlid has seen
peoples battling against nature, struggl
ing witb formidable obstacles wbicb bal
ance advantages—each advantage almost
offset as it Ware by some attendant disad
vantage, and yet through all, building up
states and cities—it is only surprising
that when a land has been found—found
and proven—which offers everything
which can make man's life a happiness;
a climate of which the only trouble is
that it is so good that when the truth is
told the teller stems to be lying; with a i
soil tbat is generous beyond measure ;tho |
mountains on one side, tbe sea on the
other, and this land being not a little
corner or pocket tucked away iv an out
of the way place, but a wide, broad land,
within tbe borders of wbich a half dozen
European states could be placed, the sur
prise is that much more bas not been ac
complished. If there is one portion of
America where capital should bs fearless,
where it should place its hand in tbat of
the future with absolute confidence and
ah abiding faith, tbat is our Southern

California—and of Southern California
more particularly Los Angeles, and of
I.os Angeles county, San Gabriel valley.
If the power of the ancient sybil or He
brew seer should fall upon some modern
prophet and he might stand on some
green hill far away, he would see the
peoples of this great valley as the sands
of the seashore or the stars of heaven for
inultittide.cities and villages, temples and
palaces, throbbing industries and fruit
ful farming. Yes, and not in a distant fu
ture, with years of heavy ; burden and
weary waiting, but in a near future, a
futuro which already stsnds at tbe door
and knock's, if it be that we can hear it.
Now to come to more practical and
everyday things. One thing does seem
so strange to the writer, and that is the
utter lack ofgindependence which people
show 111 .unking choice of a home, or of
a place where to build one. Most cities
after passing tho first stages, develop a
so-called fashionable section, in which
natural ariapttveuess holds almost no
place, and the wholly artificial injure
mem (that of being thought to be swell
by being in a swell section) seems to rule
almost completely. Now there is such a
thing as being entirely above such con
siderations, and chousing for a heme a
place where, at the same cost, one can
have space, beautiful natural as welt as
artificial surroundings, n home in tbe
luidst of charming grounds (rather than
a home on a 50-foot lot) where, above ail,
one can obtain the sine qua non of home
—privacy.
Now, turning to the San Gabriel valley
and Alhambru, a person of moderate
means may have a home in the center of
an acre of ground, abundantly watered,
with every kind of tree and flower and
vino that wiil grow, for the same cost of
one small lot in the so-called fashionable
(section of Los Angeles.
On tbe other hand some of the most de
sirable people of all cities have tbeir
homes out of tho city proper, but within
rosy reach of it. lluston. New York,
Philadelphia, all havo their beautiful
country homts. and there the people wbo
so live are invariably of the great world,
so that it seems like paying a great price
to put thousands of dollars in a small lot
that to the knowing ones signifies noth
ing.
All that Alhambra and parts of the San
Gabriel valley needs to become just
such a suburb as Los Angeles might
well De proud of, are the electric lines
connecting them with the city. Property
would advance with rapid strides, hund
reds of families would make theit homes
there,while tbeir business offices would be
in the city.
As it is, evnry train from this section
is daily crowded, on all sides are com
plaints of the inadequacy of transporta
tion, and a line to Alhambra would
empty the trains just as the line to Pasa
deni has done. We know that the great
factor of the Southern Pacilic coni
ipany would have to bo taken into con
sideration, a factor that must be consid
ered in every walk in life in every avoca
tion,ill every hope and aspiration,a factor
which clouds the prosperity, and genius
of tho state, under which this fair land
has lain, as beneath the shadow of some
great cormorant with outspread wing;
but among all the things that this cor
poration has accomplished one thing it
has not done, and that is to free itself
from smoke and cinders. Instead of the
fresh, clean, exhilarating ride which an
electric car offers, and wben alighting
feeling freshened and invigorated, one en
ters a stuffy, close box anu gives up ones
health and comfort upon the altar o |
dirt, dust, smoke and cinder.
There is no one thing or enterprise to
which the people of this section cbculd
respond more quickly and generously
thnti to any movement of this kind in
tbeir direction. And no greater mistake
could be made by the electric companies
than to overlook this most promising ter
ritory. R. H. E.

Dress
Goods
England, Scotland, France and Germany have
aided America this season in a manner far outdoing
the efforts of all preceding years. Art in weaving of
dress fabrics is more than keeping pace with the ad
vance of art in other lines, the product of the looms
carrying to the eye the sense of color and warmth
that add pleasure to utility.
The Boston Store showing is the grandest ever
attempted in Los Angeles. All that's woven is grad
ually entering the display.
