ISOS AN UNSPEAKABLE EVIL This city is afflicted with an odious, odorous, unbealthful. Illegal and wholly inexcusable nuisance that rears its dis gusting presence in several hundred va cant lots and innumerable back yards— the garbage heap. It is tbe distributor of offensive smells, tbe breeding spot of disease germs and the rendezvous of myr iads of pestiferous insects tbat radiate from it to the homes of ths people unfor tunate enough to be in the vicinity snd who may yet not be responsible tor its existence. ' The fact tbat the intolerable offense is so much in evidence shows tbat tbe mu nicipal law prahiuiting its maintenance is widely violated ; that the men whose business it is to collect garbage are neg lecting tbeir duties, and that s good many people are unrardo-iably indiffer ent to some of tne essentials oi decency and health. The dumping of house cleanings and kitchen refuse on adiicent lots or the re tention of tbe stuff in back yardß to be borneu at intertals, or may be not at all, Is ton reminiscent of tbe village era to find prsctice in these days, wben Los Angeles has advanced so far along the line to the goal of raetropolitanism. Tbe city government long since made sucb disposition unnecessary by contracting for the periodical removal and cremation of garbage. The citizen who is neglected by tbe garbage contractor can very speedily bave sucb neglect remedied, and ii be d es not do so voluntarily the board of health should see tbat be is made to. iloth tbe health and police departments can work some excellent reforms in tbis field. By all means let us keep the city clean. For this citizens of all kinds, colly nnd un godly, should stand, if for no other rea son tnan tbat by so doing we keep it healthful. Civil service reform bas taken another step and a big one. By a revision of section 2of postal rule No. 1 postorrices of tbe fourth class are brought under the operation of tbe civil service law which requires the "lling of all positions in the publio departments to wbicb it applies from a list of applicants who have passed a competitive examination. Tho effect of this new rule will he to make the po sitions of 75 per cent of all tbe postoffices subject to competitive examination and to curtail the spoilsmen's opportunities to a most important and gratifying extent. It is a change President Cleveland has long desire to make. From tbe tenor of the Interviews with representative Dsmocrats, published else where in today's issus of Tlis Herald, it is evident that in suggesting Secretary Carlisle for the Democratic presidential nomination in 18'JtJ Tim Hera Id struck the right chord. If the emperor of Germany persists in those lese uiajeste prosecutions, or, mare properly speaking, persecutions, he will satisfy the world tbat ihu socialists' opinion of him is eminently correct. Mayor Sutro has contributed foO and an abundance of good wishes to the San Francisco convention fund. The mayor is a great "moral supporter."

Careful preparations bave been made by Manager Cooper for its presenta tion and tbe play promises to be a big success l , as it really deserevs. The cast will he reprecrnted hy the full stiengtb of the company. The witticisms in the play are tired off with the speed of fire crackers. H. D. Blakemorc makes one of bit principal hits as Hummingtop. It la said to be decidediv the best tb oz he does, Heorge w. Leslie comes in for a prominent character as the rjnglish dude. Il is a caricature of course, but neverthe less it is in speech ami action a pait the gentleman has won an abundance of fav orable recognitor, tn. Miss Belle Archer wil. appear at her best as the Gutta Percha gill. In this role she met with unprecedented success in Philadelphia ami she will surely rep-at itthis week- i t the Burbank, Miss Phosa McAllister, wh iis always very good in any part she undertakes, will also be seen to advant age. Miss Blanche Bates and Miss Here Boss both are cast to their liking and the piece altogether ought to meet with rub- Fie favor. '1 lie comedy will be preceded by a dramatic episode at a curta n-ruis, r entitled. The Picture, in whicb Miss Bates and Charles kin;; will do same ex ceedingly cl.ver acting. Tbe bouse will doubtless be crowded this evening and indications point to similar audiences every evening during the week. * * * Orpbeum—The Ovide Musfh Concert coniranv opens at toe Orpheum tonight, 'ihe imputation of Ovide Musin as a violin virtuoso, ol Annie Louise Musin as « so prano and of Lduard Schari as a riai.ist are too well-known to need any com mendatory words or any introduction to the public. The name of Ovide Musin al ways carries witb it the idea ot the su perlative as applied to viol n execution. The ad ranee sale of seats already tes'.ities to his populairty in tbis vicinity. This is protubly tbe last chance tne public of this section will hays to hear tbe talented Musin for soma years to come. A strong vaudeville bill as well. BROKE His TIBIA BONE Champion Jumper Higgins Breaks His Leg Last Night John Higgins, the champion jumper of the worlu. broke his left leg at tbe Or pheum. He made his famous jump over two horses and in alighting struck his lull weignt on the left heel. He struck with such furce hs to shatter the tibia bone. The accident occurred jnst at tue close of the performance, aud though it was noticed that Mr. Higgins hopped off the stage on one foot, few suspected that the famous jumper had met with a se rious accident. Dr. MoLain, who nap pened to be in the audience, was notified and attended Mr. Higgins in bis dress ing room. Mr. Hieigns suffered excruci ating pain while Dr. McLain dressed the broken leg ns best he could with such ap pliances as were at nand. Manager Pet erciii called a coupe and Mr. Higgins was taken to tbe Hoffman bouse, where Dr. McLain again dressed the injured lihio, remaining in attendance until a lute hour this morning.

WITH THE CITY COUNCIL Some Matters of Interest to Be Today Considered The Dead Animal Contract and Street Sweep ing Will Each Cause a Debate. Early Library Closing There will probably be s breeze in ths city council when the recommendation ol the board of public works that the dead animals contract be uwa-tled to William Peterson, is bro ght up for considera tion to.lay. The award ing of the contract was up ono weeK ago, at which tiaie the matter was slter a contest re-referred, as the board of superivs >rs had strenu ously objected to tho locati n of the cre matory for the purpose any place outside of city limits. Tho hoard of public works was Instructed to nonsuit with the super visors upon the subject and learn their wishes. Not a member of the latter body made his appear.in 'c, however, when the matt r came up in committee last Friday, What Ihe result will he to day is hard to anticipate, as sereral cf the eouncilnieii are in thorough accord with the superivsois upon tho subject, besides which, Peterson, the new con tractor, was very recently in the police court charged with maintaining a public nuisance. The city engineer will today submit to the council the new ordinance of inten tion to pave Main etreet, and the several bids for sfeet sweeping will be submitted hy the beard of public worns without auy recommendat on. Bids are to be opened today for cross walks and among the petit ens to oe pre sented will be tne from ex-Mayor W, H. Workman, requesting that an electrio railway franchise through Boyle Heights be advertised for sale, and another re questing tbat the free labor bureau on West Second street be abated as a public nuisance. Tbe bonrd of park commissioners will today no before the council in a body and aak that a franchise granting certain privileges for a term of years to tbo highest bidder be advertised for sale, and the communication from the board of library trustees declining to close the doors of that institution at 9 p.m. as re quested by thecoun-il for the purpose of cutting down tbe gas hills, is to be con sidered. COLONEL AND COMMISSARY There U Skirmishing Within the Seventh Regiment Tbe rank and file of the Seventh In tantrv regiment, N. G. C, bave bad no sueb morsel of gossip to engross tueir at tention in and out of tbe regimental armory for many s, day, than bas proven the commanding colonel's communica tion to his regimental commissary request ing, a? it is alleged, his resignation. The tact that Lieutenant Ogdan bad been in vited to se.'er his otlieial connection with the reeimentul auff was a stole secret lor several itays. It was tbe heit and indie nation of Ogden's friends within the regiment which finally made of the mat ter public property. Lieutenant Ogden has been a member of the regimental staff ever since tue res ignation from the rank of lieutenant, now adjutant general, A. W. Barrett. His record hs a sildier and officer i 9 of the best, and Colonel sihrieber'a action in requesting his resignation is not geaer olh - aprroved of inside the resimen,. The regimental colonel names bis own Staff, the personnel of which has to be, uf course, approved by the governor actins as commander in chief. It is a rare in stance where a militia uflicer requests an inferior in rank, wno is his own crea tion, to step down nnd out. Colonel ohreiber, when seen by a re porter on Saturday, would not admit that he had asked Lieutenant Ogden to resign. He evaded a direct answer to the ques tion and was very non committal, as be comes a militia officer of bis high rank and station. The colonel of the Seventh did condescend after a great deal of spar rim;, to ask of the reporter what would he bis course of action abould be find that an employe had spoken disrespect fully of him. The newspaper man declin ed to give any advice in the premises, and then Colonel Shreiber wrapped about himself the taciturnity of Napoleon Boneparte while the worl I moved on just as it has been in the habit of doing for lo! these many years. Lieutenant; when seen also de clined to discuss the little friction which has jut arisen between himself and his superior o!lie*r. His intimate friends say that Ouden intends to leave the city about Decern her Ist for the purpose of heing absent for sane considerable time in the "orthern part ol the Btate. If he really does leave, he will, of course, sever his connection for tbe present with the eleventh regiment. If be fsils to go, on the uther band, it is intimated that Lieu tenant Ogden will continue to act as reg imental commissary until such time as his colonel may choose to displace h,m throut h the aid of a court of inquiry. Colonel f-hreiber expresses himself on the contrary as being thoroughly con vinced that at the proper time he will have the resignation of bis lieutenant andJ_commi»sary, indicted according to regulations and uuly filed with himself. A JEALOUS WIFE PETS STABBED She Tried to Keep Her Husband from Leaving the M use Jealousy in a woman and drink - in a man caused cousidorshlo excitement in the neighborhood of Nintb street and Broadway last night about 7: '.0 oclock. Mr. E. Melville got into a fight with his wife and stabbed her in the left hand with a hunting knife. It appears that there w;s a woman in the case. Mrs. Melville bas thought for tome time past that her husland has been neglecting her for the society of the other female and last evening when he an nounced his intention of going out she said he should not do so as it was to call uion the other woman. She planted her self in front of the door, trying to bar his way. He had bnen drinking nnd at this action of his wile's cut very angry nnd catching up the hunting knife rushed onu stabbed ot her. tried to ward off tne blow and the hiaite passed through tne fleshy i ar: of her li ft hand. Not satisfied with this Melville proceeded to follow up his advantage by Knocking her down with his fi-t. The screams of the woman aroused the nei liLiorh I and an officer was sent for. When Officer Kicbarosnn arrived he found the woman suffering from the wound, so brought her to the police sta tir.n Wbsre l>r. Bryant dressed the injury and sent her home. Melville wus placed under arrest and charged with assault with a deadly weapon. ' His wifesuid she wniilu not appear against him but as she told the irtJcer at the house that she had been cut by Melville and pave the name of the woman in t':« oaae it is probable that tha charge will bo pressed anyhow.

Tne boundaries of the reserve are li.ied with people ready to make a dash for tbe lands, while some have gone so far as to souat right on the reservation, determined to hold tbe ground at all hazards. The action of "sooners" will doubtelss cause trouble. The exact time of the start for the land is not definitely known.

Parties who went to the reserve from Boise re port that it is impossible to find corner stakes, even where the Indians bave tak en allotments. This will add to the comjili cations among the army of excited peo ple who will rush for land, and 1! several do not meet witu viol nt death it will be a miracle.

COREA'S MURDERED QUEEN Suffered at the Hands of the Japenese Soldiery A Circumstantial Account Which Would Appear More Creditable had It not Been so Long Delayed MILWACKEE, Wis.,Nov. 1 7. —Rudolph Nunnetnaober, now visiiinj in Coren, writes to the Milwaukee.
