IT SHOULD CAUSE NO SURPRISE
The Sandusky (O.) Weekly Journal
has the following significant paragraph:
The Republicans talk about protecting
the American workmen, and preach this
doctrine from the stage at every speech,
but they don't carry it out.
Many of those who have attended meet
ings at Republican headquarters have
been astonished to find there a cigar
stand and long glass cases containing
cigars, none of which bear the union
label, it is also said county officials
have also been smoking non-union ci
gars.
It will certainly not meet the approval
of voters who, believing in giving the
right kind of protection to laboring men,
will cast their ballots against any such
aotlon of the Republicans.

A JUMBLE OF LAND TITLES
A Decision by Judge Shaw
Disturbs Owners
THE B9UNDARY LINES ENTANGLED
All the Principal City Streets
are Involved
THE WARNING GIVEN IN 1869
The City Council and City Engineer's
Imbecile Methods
Street Lines Drawn to Preserve the Sym
metry Ignoring Owners' Rights
The Difficulty First Arose When Own
ers Indulged in Land-Grabbing by
Moving the Stakes of Survey.
Not Re-established
A number of property owners in the
city are suffering from that peculiar
mental disturbance known popularly as
a "conniption fit," and if a still greater
number are not present victims it :s
only because they do not yet know how
their interests are threatened.
The reason for all the trouble Is that
an Immense number of property owners,
resting content with their deeds of tltl 3,
are in reality encroaching on city prop
erty, and any day they are liable to be
brought to task and mulcted In large
sums of money. As a matter of fact the
city surveys are in such a condition as
to drive an ordinary engineer or sur
veyor crazy, and the matter has been
still further complicated by a recent de
cision of the superior court.
In the suit of Mary A. Mooney vs. W
E. Morford, street superintendent in
ISB9, et al„ a suit that has been hanging
fire for long years, Judge Shaw the Other
day handed down a decision wherein he
laid down as a proposition of law that
streets laid out upon the Official maps
belong to the public and that the stat
ute of limitations does not run against
a municipality; and this, too, notwith
standing the fact that other decisions
of court affirm to the contrary.
The trouble anent the laying out of
the city is no new one, but owing to the
action —or, to be more precise, the in
action —of the city engineers, fool sur
veyors and the city council, not ore
property holder In a hundred is actually
In the possession of the property de
scribed in his title deeds. Not infre
quently if an owner was in possession
of the right lot the city officials pn
ceeued, when it served their conven
ience, to move his lot lines without pro
cess of law other than the sweet will
of the then Jack-In ofiice. Searchers of
records, with frigid coolness, certify to
a title being free and unincumbered
when a comparison with the city maps
of streets show that the very lots cer
tified to fall to reach the street or, on
the other hand, encroach within the
street lines as denned by the city engi
neers.
Stowed away in the city archives la
a communication addressed by FranK
Lecouvreur, a surveyor in this city in
ISS9, to the mayor and city council,
wherein he warns them of tho daily in
creasing complications arising from the
utter absence of system In the city sur
veys. He warned them also of danger*
ahead and of the friction that mu=t
necessarily result between the property
owners and the city as the population
increased. Now, after the surveys have
been entangled like a Chinese puzzle,
property owners who have been de
frauded of slices of their property have
to rest content in the thought that they
will have no redress for of
limitations will not run against a mu
nicipality;" but, on the other hand,
when the city proved the loser the prop
erty holder must ante up.
IN THE EARLY DAYS
Before adverting further to things as
they are, brief reference is made to
things as they were in 1869. Surveyor
Lecouvreur, in the communication re
ferred to. says "I was requested to
locate a certain street corner on Twelfth
street. I did so by starting from an old
corner on Fifth street and measuring at
right angle offsets, allowing eighty feel
and 330 feet for streets and blocks east
and west and sixty and 600 feet for
streets and blocks north and
south." On my present survey of
Main street I took occasion to again
connect the starting and end point of
my previous survey, but I came not less
than eleven feet to the southwest of
my previous location of Twelfth street.
On both surveys I did the chaining my
self and used the same Instrument.
•"Ehe question arises, which is the cor
rect location of Twelfth strept? . . .
As it Is, resurveying lots of Orel's and
Hancock's surveys is little better than
a genteel way of getting money
false pretenses, without much gentility
about it either, when the Surveyor pre
tends to be able to fix lines and limits
finally and permanently, for he must
well konw that as soon as he starts from
a different point he will get a different
location."
When those words were written what
is now the city of Los Angeles was a
mere village, comparatively speaking.
The dangers and difficulties then fore
told are upon the city through the cul
pable negligence of the city officials.
As some slight proof of this, there were
last year no less titan 230 suits in this
county, and the larger number in the
city, in the courts appertaining to the
surveys.
The inquiry naturally suggests itself.
How does such a state of things arise?
It has been commonly the case for
property owners to file maps showing
streets and blocks of certain sizes, pur
porting to be a subdivision of certain
lots and blocks of the original survey.
A tract of land was staked out as near
as the surveyor could guess regarding
the true boundaries. If he was a good
guesser he would come anywhere from
a few feet to several hundred feet of
that original lot or block, but more often
the tract was staked out on the ground
by a survey to all points of the com
pass. The controlling monuments of
these surveys were stakes, and when a
man bought a 50-foot lot all he had to do
was tn pull up the stake and at once his
lot was enlarged to 60 feet. It was as
easy as falling off a Ins:. There was no
difficulty In thus stealing land from
one's neighbor or the city, stealing im
partially from an.
THE FAMILY HOMESTEAD UNDE
FINED.
Any subsequent survey was based
upon the monument stakes, no trouble
being taken to re-establish the original
tract, and as a natural consequence
there is today a tangle up of titles suffi
cient to make the ordinary head swim.
If this should be doubted, let any pater
famlllas rejoicing under his own fig tree
and happy In the thought that his lot
boundaries are well denned, go to the
record and get the size of the original
block and then measure the present one,
and he will probably And that he will
have at least four locations of his lot
tf ha measures Its distance from the

four corners respectively. A visit to
the city clerk's office and a perusal of
the official maps will reveal the fact that
the city engineer has taken land from
one side of the street and added a slice
of land to the property on the other
side, and the only apology for this kind
of thing is that by so doing the symme
try of the street is preserved.
The records show that the city coun
cil passed an ordinance defining the
lines of certain streets, notably Eighth
and Ninth, and ordered the streets
graded in accordance therewith. Up
popped a surveyor who owned some
property on the street, and drew at
tlon to the fact that the streets were
not straight lines. The council, realiz
ing that the straight streets would be
best, passed a resolution to make them
straight, and thereupon the same was
done—on the ground—but the ordinance
was left the same as before. The survey
or, doubtless, chuckled with glee, for he
gained a strip of land four feet wide by
165 feet in length at the expense of his
neighbors on the opposite side of the
street. But these latter owners are
scratching their heads trying to gain an
idea as to what has become of that slice
of land bitten off their property.
And this is only one instance in hun
dreds.
HOW THE JUGGLE HAPPENS.
It appears as It the action ot the city
council and city engineer has been con
tinually to shift the holdings of owners
and the Interpretation of conveyances.
Just to imagine a very possible and
probable case:
A man receives a deed by lot
and block as per certain re
corded map. He sells it and for
greater certainty of description de
scribes It by metes and bounds. Then
along comes the city engineer and
moves the street, and, as a rule, leaves
little record of the fact, as the lot ap
pears by deed to be a certain distance
from the street corner, rfTid the owner
naturally supposes it to be so. Let him
try it, however, and he will at once find
that he has taken possession of his
neighbor's property, and an ordinary
tape line will demonstrate the fact.
Main, Spring, Broadway and other of
the principal streets of the city are glar
ing examples of this lack of method,
and an examination of the maps in the
city engineer's office will show that the
case is rather under than over-esti
mated.
WHAT IS THE REMEDY
Evangelist Moody in addressing an
immense audience with regard to rais
ing money, etc., and speaking directly
with regard to the method to be fol
lowed, said that what the Christian
community needed beyond all else was
"sanctified common sense." That is an
exact definition of what is needed to
straighten this matter out. Indeed,
if the Al brand above mentioned is not
obtainable, just every day "horse sense"
will answer the purpose.
Instead of spending hundreds of thou
sands of dollars upon useless surveys,
to be discarded by the next administra
tion, let a proper survey be made by a
competent surveyor and not by a civil,
hydraulic or any other kind of an en
gineer. The streets would then be es
tablished, once for all.
Meantime, as property owners real
ize how the city in many cases has
encroached upon their property,
they feel hot, but they can
taper off to coolness again,
for. unless the encroachment Is of recent
date, there is no relief for them. Others
who have gained by their neighbors'
losses may at some future time be call
ed upon to yield up a slice of their prop
rty. as it is not theirs, and the decision
of Judge Shaw shows the the statute
will not run against the municipality.

The officers of the association have re

to these claims a circular has been is

read as follows:
"We are living in troublous times;
entering into a period of great unrest
and social upheaval.
"Within the next three months strong
pressure will be brought to bear by the
money power to prevent necessary re
form, progress and advancing intelli
gence.
"Every branch of society will suffer;
the money power will make itself felt
In every conceivable way, but the chief
energy will be directed against the great
masses of producing labor. Factories
will be shut down and manufacturing
will be at a stand-still, thus swelling the
already swollen ranks of the unem
ployed.
"Intimidation in the shape of threat
ened starvation will be 'resorted to,force
and corruption will be used to betray the

operation.
"These tactics will bo mainly directed

"Remember that those who will be di

reliable recipe for the construction of
a musician probably arrived at.
Those desiring to view The Herald's
X-ray apparatus are requested to be
prompt at the appointed hours.
A SERMON ON THE X-RAY.
Ministers of the gospel are finding In
the character and accomplishments of
the X-ray apparatus used in The Her
ald's charitable work some new and
apt Illustrations to adorn a sermon or
to point the moral thought they would
instil and fasten in the minds of their
hearers. A most eloquent application
of its powers occurred in a sermon deliv
ered yesterday by the Rev. J. A. B. Wil
son at the Garvanza Methodist church.
His text was the opening words of the
gospel of St. John: "In the beginning
was the word, and the word was God.
The same was in the beginning with
God. All things were made by Him and
without Him was not anything made
that was made. In Him was life and the
life was the light' of man. And the UgVit
shineth in darkness and the darkness
comprehended It not."
"In the beginning was the word." That
is to say before anything was formed,
ere God began the great work of crea
tion, the word or "Logos" was. Logos
was no part of the creation. Logos ante
dated creation. Now, as what was be
fore all creation must be eternal, and as
what gave being to all things could not
derive its being from anything, therefore
"Logos," the word, Jesus, was before
all things, made all things, and is the
eternal God, upholding all things.
Dr. Clarke says that "Logos," of
which the literal translation is here used,
signifying word, or spoken speech, or
doctrine, or reason, or the faculty of rea
soning, was as much an appellation of
the Savior as "Jesus" or "the Christ."
And it was an appropriate name for
Him who is the true light which lighteth
every man who Cometh into the world,
the fountain of all wisdom who hati de
clared and revealed God unto mankind.
In Genesis God is said to have created
all things. In this verse, Jesus, the
Word, is said to have created all things.
The same unerring spirit spake in Moses
and the evangelist. Therefore, Christ
and the father are one, and to say that
Christ made all things by delegated
power is absurd.
"In him was life," and Jesus impart
ed life to everything he created.whether
animal, vegetable or intellectual. Yet
the animal life held not the light of man.
for "the world by wisdom knew not
God."
Therefore, the expression "in him was
light," means naturally that light eter
nal which he revealed unto men.
God created light. "God created two
great lights."—Gen. 1. 16. And now we
use a new light, the X-ray, and with it
see through opaque substances. With
"It turned upon the pocket books of this
congregation your pastor can tell, when
he appeals to you to emulate Its helpful
ness in charitable work, whether It Is
quite true that you have "lift all your
money at home." At this witty sally a
perceptible murmur of merriment and
applause was with difficulty suppressed
by the sedate congregation to whom the
humorous predilections of the good par
son much endear him.
We are able with this new light to
peer into the very heart of polld sub
stance wrapped hitherto always in
opaque gloom. If all I hear of the first
steps of this groat discovery be true
. I believe it to be only a short time until
we can peer through the wall of your
room and see your every act. whether
you are conscious of it or not. But a
little while till we can pierce the moun
tains surrounding us and see the plain
beyond. \
How like the all-seeing omniscience
of the omnipotent Gndjs tills great dis
covery! God is an X-ray, looking
through your conscience, your motives,
your faults, distinguishing between
those sprung from hereditary environ
ment and those of personal perversity
in the secret sins of your life.
In a way as mysterious to us as was
the hesirt of solid substance but the other
day, ere this new light made bright the
gloom of Its hiding place, God, with the
X ray of divine intelligence, can pene
trate the innermost chambers of the
tomb of time, where the buried cen
turies lie, or he can peer behind the veil
of the future into the uttermost con
fines of the ages yet unborn.
Verily, it is true as St. Mark hath
said: "There is nothing covered which
shall not be revealed, and hid that shall
not be known."
In this marvelous discovery, filling
with translucency the opaque, we are
finding out something old, not some
thing new, although It may be new to
us, of the great wisdom of the Almighty
God, his power and his everlasting
glory. *"
In his divine omniscience he hath
withheld from the minds of the children
of men this new proof of his wisdom
ERGSD
and his watchfulness to this day of
doubt and mockery.
He hath withheld It in order to ans
wer again, and to again confound, the
cry of the weak unbeliever and the
sneer of the agnostic, still heard as In
that day when "The Pharisees also with
the Sadducees came, and tempting, de
sired him that he would show them a
sign from Heaven, Matt. xvl:l, or as
St. John hath said it, "What sign show
est thou then, that we may see and be
lieve thee?"
Standing in the presence of this new
evidence of God's glory and watchful
wisdom, this modern miracle as mar
velous as the demonstrations of ancient
days, what unbeliever in the supreme
knowledge of God is not confounded?
And who can doubt the eternal goodness
of the all wise? Who doth not gain from
this a clearer, fuller comprehension of
the mighty and eternal power of him
who said: "Let there be light! And there
was light!"

ing to Los Angelesi fanciers was lib
orated by Mr. S. A. Biythe of Tulare,
Cal. Before shipping the pigeons were
counter-marked by disinterested par
ties.
A telegram was received from the lib
erator stating that he started the birds
at 9:05 a. m.; fair weather and north
wind.
At home the conditions were unfavor
able. However, late in the afternoon
four birds arrived at Mr. Zabn's loft,
and at exactly 4:59 p. m. one bearing a
counter-mark was Inside the trap box.
.Mr. W. H. Syme acted as timer.
One of Mr. Casenave's birds was found
home at 5:30 p. m., and had evidently
been in several minutes. No other birds
returned, but this morning the rest are
expected.
The next race will be from Madera.
AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS
There seems to be a wide-spread sen
timent in the state favoring the estab
lishment of experimental agricultural
stations In various localities. Whether
such stations should be auxiliary to the
state agricultural department or en
tirely under local management is a mat
ter of little moment, the real object to
be gained being, as the editor of the ag
licultural department of the Los Ange
les Herald suggests, "putting the ques
tion to the sol! and getting the answer
from tho crop." A sum very much
smaller than that expended annually in
support of the department of agricul
ture at the state university would keep
up a number of stations throughout the
state under the direction of capable
local instructors. At Ontario an ex
perimental plot under the management
of, say, the teacher in chemistry at Chaf
fey college might prove of great advan
tage to the farming community with
out drawing very heavily on state aid.—
