Wrile the Truth as you see ft; Fight the Wron; as you find it; Pub lish all the News and Trust the Event to the .Inclement of the People SaTuRDAY, APRILiiT 1896 The Herald of tomorrow will con tain many notable features, chief among them a sketch of the facilities by which it is enabled to furnish its many thousands of readers "all the news all the time," Including the busi ness office, editorial, composing, press and engine rooms, and a description of the linotype battery recently installed, through the medium of which composi tion is done ala typewriter. An outline of the career of The Herald, replete with incidents of more than passing interest to many of the old-timers of this city, will be a part of The Her ald's talk about itself. Another feature of exceptional Interest in tomorrow's edition will be the most complete and entertaining account of the parks of Los Angeles ever pub lished. These "lungs of the city" will be described in their origin, growth and present development, and the story should be one of exceeding interest to resident of Los Angeles. The declaration of the Tucson Star, ex- Gov. Hughes' paper that it Will give to Hughes' succssor in the gubernato rial chair loyal support and generally assist in solidifying the Democratic par ty in Arizona, is certainly creditable to its editor and w ill have a decided ten dency to modify the unfavorable views that many have entertained regarding him. The ex-governor shows that he is something more than an official Demo crat. The Herald's local contemporaries are, in a more jr less rancorous way,discred iting each other's accounts of the har bor meetings held Wednesday evening. A stranger in the city who would read all that they say about each other would have a mighty hard time deciding which paper had lied the least. The Herald experiences a pardonable pride in the knowledge that for its reports of tho two gatherings held that evening it has received warm encomiums from all sides, and admissions of tlie acuracy of those reports even from papers favor ing the side to which The Herald is op posed, lt is the purpose of The Herald in reporting the news to report it fairly, and neither add to nor take from be cause of the sympathies or antagonisms of the paper. The news columns of a paper should always tell tlie truth re gardless of the interests or the Individ uals that may affected by adherence to tlie line of veracity. It is and will be tho policy of The Herald to report those from whom it differs as fairly as it does those with whom it agrees. A news paper that docs otherwise does not de serve to exist and will not permanent ly. "You may fool some of the people all the time, or you may fool all the peo ple some of tlie time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time." ANOTHER ROUND According to Senator White's mes sage, the question of a deep sea harbor for the Los Angeles county coast is to have its next round before the senate committee on commerce on the 17th of this month. If the right sort of work is done this round can be made a telling one for the people. A full and forcible showing of the claims of San Pedro and the wishes of the people of Los An geles and vicinity as to the location of a harbor should certainly result in at least a restoration to the bill of the item of $392,000, inserted and subsequently withdrawn by the house committee on rivers and harbors, for the completion of San Pedro's inner harbor and a suffi cient appropriation to allow the be ginning of work on the outer harbor project. The fact that the people do not wish the government to build a harbor for the Southern Pacific should also be finally demonstrated. Of course the fate of the San Pedro proposition in the senate Mill depend in very large measure on Senator White, and there is every reason to believe that the senator's efforts will be In the Interest of the people and against the designs of the monopolistic corpora tion that is seeking to have the govern ment build a harbor that would practi cally be a private affair. The Herald feels sure that if' Southern California's senator will make a presentation of the issue before the committee on com merce In his own masterly way, that v when the committee reports the bill carrying appropriations for rivers and harbors to the senate, lt will be found that in so far as that committee is con cerned, right has triumphed, unless the "pull" ofHuntington Is as tireless and far-reaching in the upper as it is in the lower house of congress. To Senator White most valuable aid can be given by the citizens of Los An geles. This can be done by maintaining a united front in behalf of San Pedro, by persisting in a refusal to yield in the slightest degree to the specious pleas of the alleged "double harbor" advocates, and by making personal appeals in be half of the harbor site Intended by na ture , endorsed repeatedly by govern ment experts and voted for by the peo ple, to every friend in Washington, or elsewhere, for that matter, who could be reasonably expected to influence the acts of the gentlemen who constitute the membership of the senate commit tee on commerce. Before the hearing afforded by the committee on the har bor matter Is concluded, the popular feeling regarding the subject should be made so evident that there will exist in the minds of the senators no room for doubt or hesitancy as to the course to pursue. We may be sure that Senator White will highly appreciate every ef fort that Is made to make easier his task of sustaining the cause of a free harbor for Los Angeles. CARLISLE THE MAN The Indications continue to point to John G. Carlisle as the logical and ideal candidate of the Democracy in the next presidential contest. No man in the Democratic party has a clearer concep tion of its great fundamental principles or is more loyal to its mission, and no Democrat is more capable of making an able and convincing exposition of the party's doctrines. A Democratic cam paign led by him would be truly a"cam palgn of education," for Secretary Car lisle fights his political battles in an impersonal way with unanswerable logic and invincible facts as his only weapons, lie Is not afraid to hear or tell the truth, and the resources of the demagogue are not numbered with his political properties. If he enters the contest for the presidency ho will do so not as a "magnetic man," a "hypnotic handshaker," a candidate with a "name to conjure with," although he is today and has been for many years person ally one of the most popular of the De mocracy's great leaders,but as the rep resentaive of a set of political princi ples that he conscientiously believes are best calculated to conserve the in terests of his fellow-countrymen. But while Mr. Carlisle would be im personal and he would ask for an im personal consideration, and seek the suffrages of the people not as John G. Carlisle, bu as a prophet of the Demo cratic faith, his strong personality would certainly prove a valuable fac tor In assisting him to carry the party's standard to the ramparts of victory. Mr. Carlisle, like the distin guished chief of the administration in which the eminent Kentucklan plays so conspicuous and able a part, has a character that inspires confidence in the independent, thoughtful business men of the country. These latter know Mr. Carlisle as a man of unflinching purpose, clear vision, absolutely in corruptible and with a broad grasp of public questions, one who will know and have the courage to do what is right in the face ot a crisis.. The estimate in which the secretary Is held by the business element of the country is reflected in a brief but eulogistic reference to him by the New York Fruitman's Guide, one of the leading journals of its class in the United States, and a publication that is in no sense partisan. Tlie Guide pub lished a portrait of Mr. Carlisle, ac companying it with the following re marks: The Guide takes pleasure in publish ing this picture, believing that this gen tleman is the only one thus far men tioned, as a possible candidate of either party, wholly desirable to the farming clement and mercantile community of this country. Botli of these factors must recognize the fact that it is on questions of finance that the prosperity of the country rests, and as both are vitally interested, and as the Hon. John G. Carlisle has demonstrated his ability to deal with these questions more ably than any other public man, the Guide earnestly advocates his nom ination and election. Fruit Prospects SACRAMENTO, April 10—At a meet ing of the state horticultural society, held In this city today, it was devel oped In the different discussions that the fruit crop would be unusually large. The growers said there would be a scarcity of almonds and late peaches, these crops having been damaged to some extent by fros.t. The afternoon session was given up largely to a discussion of smudging to protect against frost. The material mostly used consisted of bales of straw soaked In tar, for the reason that this produced a very dense smoke. All those who spoke on the subject were of one mind as to the good accom plished. The consensus of opinion was that this process protected against the most severe frosts. Not the Tan YISALIA.

Cheer him for his splendid "pluck:" Like the vulture on his prey. Swooped the Doctor that fine day. When he met the Boers' stern host. Waiting, steadfast, at their post, Like a hero on he went To earn his master cent, per cent.; On he went for Mammon's hold To save the women—and the gold! "Grab" his object, "grab" his aim. As he played his desperate game. This is what our London likes— A kind of glorified Bill Sikes. Cheer him. Cheer him "in the flood," cheer for glory, then, and blood!

OEMS The heavy day hangs in a heaven of lead. Sick-hearted, like a blind hurt beast astray On the paths wheie light scarce lightened ere it fled The heavy day.

CASH FUND WAY BEHIND A SERIOUS SITUATION CONFRONTS THE CITY GOVERNMENT An Old Antl.Hitching Ordinance Has Just Been Discovered — Dose Not Include Broadway-Proposed Boyle Heights Road May Mean a Whittier Road The city's cash fund Is again over drawn, and the amount of such over draft for the nine months of the pres ent fiscal year to date is nearly 117,000. The amount of demands approved by the council and submitted to the mayor lor executive approval foots up to a total of $12,845.84, the total amount au thorized and expended being $129,491.65. Tiie total amount allowed for cash fund purposes during the past nine months was $112,500. including the amount of the overdraft to date aggregating $16, --891.65. The above figures are taken from the records, a Herald reporter having spent several hours yesterday digging out the facts. The majority of the members of the council have for several days been suspecting that things were again wrung, despite the extraordinary wave of municipal retrenchment of three months ago, going very much wrong, and a strong effort has been made to keep the facts as they exist below the surface, at least until such time as a relief measure of some sort could be provided for.everything tobe then made public simultaneously. The finance committee will today, In extraordinary session, seek to agree upon some plan for relief. Counclimen say there can be no further reduction of employes in the various municipal de partments, as the last extraordinary cutting off of employes has seriously crippled several branches of the city's service. The total amount of demands allowed in January was ti1.543.79. In February it was $14,659.1», and in March $12,204.01. A LAW ALREADY EXISTS The recent business men's agitation for an ordinance which will in some manner regulate tlie indiscriminate hitching of horses and vehicles upon tlie main streets of the city has re sulted in the discovery by the city at torney's oflice of an old law upon the subject which lias been in existence since tlie 21st day of September, ISS6. It was adopted during the administra tion of Mayor E. F. Spence. The law is entitled an "ordinance regulating the use of the public streets of the city," and is as follows: lt shall be unlawful for any person to use the public sidewalks for. the dis play of merchandise, boxes, barrels, trucks or other articles upon the pub lic streets of the city of Los Angeles, described as follows: Los Angeles street from Arcadia and Aliso to First, Main street from the plaza, to Third; Upper Main from Marchessault to the junction of Alameda; Spring street from Temple to Seventh; First street from Fort (Broadway) to Los Angeles; Second street from Fort (Broadway) to Main; Requena street from Main to Wilmington; Arcadia from Main to Los Angeles; Commercial from Main to Al ameda. All merchandise placed on the side walk of the streets described shall be immediately taken into the stores or removed by the owner thereof. It shall be unlawful for any person to use any of the sidewalks or gutters of the portions of the streets described for the purpose of packing or unpack ing merchandise. It shall be unlawful for any person between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. to leave any horse standing un hitched for a longer period than one hour on any of the portions of the streets described, or to ]»aye any ex press wagon, truck, hack, herdic, de livery or other wagon backed up against the curb of any portion of the public slreet in the district described, except when the same is being actually used for the delivery or receiving of pasengers. The penalty provision in the above is a fine of $200 or six months' Imprison ment for violation of any of its provis ions. The board of public works will today amend this old ordinance, which is number 253, in the old series, so as to take into the prohibited section Broad way from First to Seventh streets. The former was a residence street when this ordinance was passed, hence its omis sion. The hours of prohibition will also be somewhat amended. The <mended ordinance will he reported for adoption on Monday. — WORKMAN'S HARD BATTLE Ex-Mayor Workman was before the Board of Public Works yesterday to again argue in favor of the advertising of the proposed new Boyle Heights elec tric road franchise. Some* of the mem bers of the board oppose the granting of a franchise if the route takes in Sixth street. They want Seventh street sub stituted. There are. however, no formal protests against the granting of the proposed privilege. The franchise when sold will, it is expected, be bid in by either tlie Hooks or by Messrs. Sher man and Clark, whose next electric ven ture will, it is said, be to and from Whittier. The board yesterday acted upon the following: In the matter of the proposals to im prove Thompson street, from Adams to Twenty-third streets, we recommend that the bid of M. S.

Parker, the major's secre tary, leaves this afternoon for a 10 --days' visit to San Francisco. The trip is one of a business nature. George Beebe of tlie tax collector's office will act as mayor's clerk during Parker's absence from the city. RELIGION OF THE BOERS Soma of the Observances Among the Simple South African People A timely article on the "Religious Customs Among the Boers of South Africa" appears in Today, a monthly re view published in Philadelphia. It is by Annie Russell, who lias apparently been a personal witness of the life of the Boers'. Remarking that the puritan simplicity of the Boer's faith has been regarded by English people with a rude skepticism, tiie writer goes on to-sa-y: "in the observances of religioifs "wor ship the Boers are exemplary, and in their home life they know very litile of diversion but what is of this nature. They pray in stentorian tones and sing with a solemn heartiness that conveys the idea of dead earnestness. Their sus ceptibilities are easily moved by a little emotional oratory. It. fills them with a sense of unctuous satisfaction, but tlie sense of formalism would shock their sense of decorum. They would hardly approve of such manners in church. Tile critics who scout their piety and call it by the name of hypocrisy are guilty of a thoughtless derision that belies reflection. Out of clinch the Boers have certainly a little weakness for parading their religion. They in dulge considerably in scriptural phrase ology, and allude to the personality of God in a way that Bounds familiar and' canting, but there is no idea of profan ity in it. It is with them an evidence of reverence and sincerity, and, in justice to them, I must state that in all my in tercourse with these people 1 have found thorn sternly free from the slight est approach to levity on tlie subject of things held sacred. They regard the services of the English Episcopal church at Pretoria as nothing but a theatrical show. To them it appears a travesty of religion. "Like most people of simple and pas toral habits, the Boers retire soon after the close of day and rise with tho first of dawn of the morn, nnd in the early twi light they assemble and sing psalms and hymns and offer up prayers with a strength and earnestness that consti tutes quite a laborious effort. Their tunes are intensely dreary and monoto nous. They sing in spasmodic lengths with long pauses intervening, and tiie impression conveyed is that each one follows his or her own time and tune; therefore, except for its heartiness, it does not Inspire much admiration, un less gratiture at being at a distance from it might bear the construction. As soon as darkness closes in a heavy supper is partaken of, and then a re petition of the morning's devotional ex ercises takes place, aud the family re tire to rest. Strict in their ideas of church going, and in the observance of the rites it imposes, they neccsarily re gard the minister with the greatest reverence, and they are willing subjects of his little autocracy. He is to them the direct emissary of God and the bul wark of their faith. He performs all the spiritual ofiices their lives have need of, and is also the guardian of their morals, and derelictions in this respect restrict the culprit In church privileges, than which nothing could be more ter rible." We are informed that the church to which the majority of the Boers sub scribes is the Dutch Reformed.but there Is a sect of them called "Doppers," who affect extreme severity and are peculiar 111 their dress, manners and way of life. We quote briefly some further informa tion: "The ministers of churches among the Boers are mainly Hollanders, though there is a growing desire for men of the country to fill these offices, and some of them are men who have studied at the Cape theological schools. These men having- the same origin as the Boers, their sympathies are allied to them, and their influence will have greater weight In advocating education. Every town boasts the somewhat odd looking structure built in the form of a cross, which is known to be the church. ! It has its place in the center of a square, i from which point the town takes its j grow th. The minister generally has his habitation within the shadow of the wa,lls of his church, Itinerating period ically among his Hock, who are scat tered throughout tlie district, living at ; great distances apart on their lonely j farms. Every three months naacht maal, or celebration of the sacrament, takes place at the! parish church, if I may call it so, and it is made the occas ion of the ingathering of the whole flock who make this a point of most exem plary observance, the majority of them ! having to perform several days of tra vel to be present. At these times the square round the church Is the camp ing ground on which hundreds of wag ons and tents are packed, a scene of life and hustle which contrasts strange ly with Its unusual quiet appearance. Friends meet and rejoice in social inter j course, thawing to merriment and jov | lality in the atmosphere of a camp fire under the quiet stars of heaven, and so I full of a certain method and repose Is the aspect of this gypsy life among the J Boers that tlie casual onlooker would feel a difficulty In dissociating them from it, so aptly does It seem to be their j normal element."— Literary Digest.

That is why it is the only remedy with millions of families, and is everywhere esteemed so highly by all who value good health. Its beneficial effects are due to the fact, that it is the one remedy which promotes internal cleanliness, without debilitating the organs on which it acts.
