THE REAL ISSUE The Times says: "The idea put forth by Mr. Snyder's organ that there Is a large class of citizens in Los Angeles who are willing to wink or connive at an unjust and unreasonable settlement of the issue between the municipality and the City Water company, is insult ing In the highest degree." In Its rage the Times admits too much for its own good. For the first time the water company, by itsi organ, claims that there is a' "settlement" pending be tween it and the municipality. This puts quite a new phase on the water question. It means that the water company is de manding something from the people, which they refuse to give, and that there is an "Issue" between the parties in in terest which must be settled. For once the Times prints interesting news. The people have supposed all along that the water company has been supplying them with water under a franchise granted by the municipal government; that the company has collected its bills regular ly; that the plant was exclusively the property of the company; that its fran chise would expire by limitation, and that, when it did expire, the account be tween it and the city would balance— the company being free to do as it liked with Its plant, and the people being to arrange elsewhere for water supply •ervice. But the Times says there is a "settle ment" to be made, and that It is an "issue between the municipality and the City Water company." Will the Times oe more explicit—submit a bill of par ticulars, that the people may know what there is to "settle?" When the water company's franchise expires, right then and there all official and business rela tions between the municipality and the water company will cease, or should cease, so far as rights granted by the existing franchises are concerned. But if the Times article means anything at all It means that the water company has claims against the city for money which are not provided for in the franchise, and that the "settlement" of these claims is the "issue" of the mnulcipal campaign. Will the Times give a bill of Items, and say how many thousand dol lars will be required to make a "settle ment" with the water company? If the water company is going to spring a bill for "extras" and make It the • issue," the people should know something about It. The people are under obligations to the Times for throwing out this hint of a conspiracy to plunder them under the guise of a "reasonable settlement," but it was stupidity, and not a purpose to put the people on their guard that moved the Times to "give the snap away." As to the "large class of citizens who •re willing to wink or connive at an unjust and unreasonable settlement," we have the word of the Times that 95 per cent of the people favor municipal ownership of the water supply system. That is to say, 95 per cent of the people tm net want to term out the privilege of ■applying the city with water; that they are willing to pay the water company . for Us plant a sum of money equal to what it would cost to duplicate it, but that they are not in favor of paying $1,780,000 more than it is worth. The municipality Is not run as a charitable Institution, and anyway the water com pany is not an object of charity. The people should keep their eyes on the "reasonable settlement" scheme. It Is loaded with tricks to break Into the city treasury. Let the Times be taken at lt» word, and make the "settlement" business the "Issue" of the campaign. THE COMBINE AT WORK The water company and Its ally, the Southern Pacific, unfold their plans and reveal their purpose from day to day. and at every turn and twist of the slimy colls of the combine there ap pear schemes to gather the govern ment of Los Angeles Into Its blood-suck ing folds. Just now the venom of the reptile Is being flung at the people's candidate for mayor for no reason other than it knows that with M. P. Snyder as the chief executive of the city there would be no opportunity to sink its fangs Into the body politic. The com bine hates Mr. Snyder because he stands for the best interests of the people, and not for corporation aggrandizement. The water company wants a "settle ment" with the city when there Is nothing to settle. In short. It wants to sell its plant, if it cannot get Its franchise extended for a long term of years, to the city at a price which would be fully If not more than twice its value, and that, too, in the face of its organ's confession that 35 per cent of the people are opposed to any such a deal. The combine's effort to weaken the confidence the people have in Mr. Sny der by calling him a "shoe maker" and by asserting that the election of such a man— a mechanic —would "bring mortification upon the community," Is making votes very fast for the "shoemaker." The people are not quite ready to ostracize a man because he is a boot and shoe merchant; besides , public sentiment does not accept the standard of politi cal honesty and public morals which trusts and monopolies erect for the rule and guide of official conduct as being the best for society, and as between a seller of boots and shoes and a buyer of votes and public officials, the code of ethics employed by the boot and shoe dealer In his business and political life the people believe is far more conducive to public good. But in Its desperation to get a fresh hold upon the throat of Los Angeles the combine only warns the people to be ware of Its Intentions when It assails the Integrity of prominent business men, and no doubt much good will come of the employment of questionable tac tics. At all events, the combine fur nishes evidence abundant every day why it should not be allowed to be the j power behind the municipal govern- I ment, and there is no doubt at ail that the people will take good care that it is not mayor by proxy. The fact is, the intense anxiety of the combine to rule the city has caused it to become reck less in the prosecution of Its side of the campaign ar.d expose the cloven foot in all Its hldeousness. The more it abuses Mr. Snyder the larger his ma jority will be. The people are not such fools as to be pulled about by the nose by the Los Angeles water company and Southern Pacific railway. The sugar beet can be profitably grown in California on the same terms that wheat and fruit are grown, but of course a bounty of two or more cents a pound on sugar would make the business very much more profitable so would a bounty of a quarter of a dollar per bushel make wheat growing remunerative, and if a sugar bounty is right, why not have a wheat bounty. Theosophists might use W. L. Price to prove the doctrine of reincarnation, for there is plenty of room for belief that he was Ananias in a former life. But. then, what right have Theosophists to cast a reflection upon Ananias? No, bad as was Ananias, let us have enough respect for his memory to draw the line at Price. It is very fortunate for Bismarck that he is close in the esteem of the people, for were he not. the emperor would make Grmany a very uncomfortable abiding place for him. However, it is safe to say that Bismarck has the real welfare of Prussia very much closer to his heart than the empire has or could have. "Shoemaker" Snyder has a "last" that is very distasteful to the water-railway combine and its organ. The fact of the matter is. Mr. Snyder will have to part his hair In the middle and don an eye glass before the aristocratic Times will recognize him—but would recognition be worth the trouble to win it? General Weyler finds it very difficult to make the Cuban rebels do exactly as he w ants them to do. But, then, he ought to be satisfied with capturing their abandoned camps, besides It Is healthier to rush In upon places where the rebels are not than where they are. Nearly 444,000 immigrants arrived in this country during the last fiscal year, ar.d it is encouraging to know that less than six in 1000 were ineligible to land. There is no danger to this country from the coming of intelligent and industrious home-seekers. Thomas Brackett Reed is too smart to be shelved In a cabinet position. What he wants is plenty of mistakes by the McKinley administration, so that the man from Canton will fail of the nomi nation in 1900. Thomas wants it him self. M. P. Snyder is the sharpest thorn the water company ever ran against. In this connection it might be well to observe that the Times has been pretty badly scratched by the same thorn. It is everybody's business to take in terest enough in the water question to keep an eye upon the combine. There la ns doubt that more than 90 per cent LOS A3ZGISLES HEBAXD: MONDAY MORNTNGr, N"OYEMBEB 23; 1929. of tbe people want municipal ownership, but the question of buying the water company's plant is an Important one. The scheme Is to unload the plant on the city at nearly 22,000,000 more than it Is worth. Mr. Snvder is a shoemaker, but be cause he is opposed to letting the water company "heel" itself ut the expense of the people the combine says he is "too common" to be mayor. "To the deserter belongs the spoils," Is the way the Chattanooga News refers to the appointment of Palmer and Buck ner Democrats to office by Cleveland. The Price man and the Times news paper are making votes for Snyderevery hour of the day, and they are not asking a cent for campaign expenses. No, Mr. Snyder Is not paying the Times to oppose his election. He will have a handsome majority without resorting to anything of that kind. It Is said that Mr. Hanna will not be ready to announce a cabinet for Mr. McKinley much before inauguration day. Mechanics and laboring men should not forget that the combine, as U its organ, is a bitter foe to organized mus cle. CURRENT COMMENT. The supreme court of Illinois has de cided that the Torrens law Is unconsti tutional. This law provides, as is gen erally known, for the simplification of methods in the transfer of real estate, and has operated in an entirely satis factory way; but the court says that tt confers judicial powers on the registrar of titles, and so it becomes null and void by a mere trick of technical con struction, in spite of the fact that the people indorse It and that it Is manifest ly advantageous.—St. Louis Globe-Dem ocrat.

There 1s just one thing to be said about the situation in Leadville, and that is that the supremacy of the law must be established, regardless jjf the wishes of either the miners or the mine owners.

GERMANY'S SNAIL FARMS The edible white snail Is scientifically cultivated on snail farms in Germany. The snails, after being gathered during the month of August in the surrounding forests, are put into a pen and fed newly mown grass and leaves. After staying in the pen about a month the mouths of the snails are covered with a hard mem brane, which Indicate to the snail farm er that the snail is as fat as it will ever be, because its closed mouth prevents it from eating. The snails are then gather ered and packed and shipped to the markets of France and Germany.

FANNY BLOOMFIELD ZEISLER Fanny Broomneid Zeisier, the nent pianist, who gives her first concert in Los Angeles tonight at the Los An geles theater, arrived in the city on Saturday. The musical critics, who have heard her in private since arrival, are able to state with confidence that the success of her recital tn this city is already assured. Her personality is de cidedly Interesting, and, although her physique is not of the robust order, there Is every indication of the strength and Intellectual power which are marked characteristics of her piano-forte play ing. She took San Francisco by storm, the musical people of that city christen ing her "Paderewski's rival." Mme. Zeisier Is possessed of an unusual amount of magnetism. Her artistic temperament is evident to the most casual observer, and as her mastery over the piano has been vouched for by the highest authorities, it is safe to pre dict that there Is a treat in store for Un musical public of Los Angeles tonight. Mme. Zelsler Is an animated and fluent conversationalist, and when music Is the theme her face displays the keen Inter est which she takes in her beloved art. She is not anxious to talk of herself; on the contrary, she has all the modesty of a true artist, and only consented to speak of her achievements on being as sured that musical people would natur ally feel Interested in learning somi - thing of the career of one who had so greatly distinguished herself. "My musical career," said Mme. Zelsler. "dates from the time when, as a young girl in Chicago, I met Mme. Eslpoff, Un celebrated pianlste. She thought she detected in me an unusual talec't for music, and advised my parents to send me abroad for Instruction. Accordingly I went to Vienna and entered as a stu dent at the conservatory. I do not think I derived much benefit from the tuition I received there. It was all ton mechanical. Studies from morning to night and no cultivation of the musical faculty. After some months of this drudgery I finally met Leschetitzky. the celebrated teacher, and he was quick to detect In me the talent which others had overlooked. Under him I made rapid progress, and after my first public ap pearance the professors of the con servatory hastened to acknowledge their error. "I do not think the training at many conservatories, at home or abroad. Is al ways beneficial. It Is too mechanical, and In one at least (Stuttgart) the method adopted Is entirely wrong. Tlie depression of the knuckles, which Is the Stuttgart fad, Is descriptive of the true position of the hand for piano-forte playing. "Since my debut In Vienna I have played In the principal cities of Ger many with great success. At Dresden I played Rubinstein's piano-forte con certo in D minor in the presence of the oomposer. Being somewhat diffident of my ability to render so great a work according to the composer's ideas, I re quested Rubinstein to give me some sug gestions as to the proper interpretation of the concerto, but he paid me the compliment of saying that he had ab solutely no suggestion to make. "My success in America during the past few years Is. of course, well known to you, but I am exceedingly anxious to secure a favorable verdict from the peo ple of Los Angeles, and I have long looked forward to this trip with pecu liar interest and pleasure." Mme. Zelsler Is decidedly catholic In her musical tastes, although she ex presses a preference for the classical composers of the past, peculiarly Bee thoven, Schumann, Mendelssohn and Chopin. Her favorites among composers of the present day are Rubinstein and Greig, and she thinks very highly of Edward Schuytte. a composer whose piano-forte music is rapidly coming into notice. She does not believe in mechani cal aids to piano-forte playing, although she occasionally uses a small dumb piano for special work. In reply to the request for an expression of opinion as to the three great heroes of modern piano playing—Hans yon Buelow, Rubinstein and Paderewski—she said: "As a pianist T place Paderewski before Buelow, al though Buelow's wonderful memory and his exceptional talent as a conductor prove him to hdve been a musician of extraordinary ability. Rubinstein's playing, particularly of the works of Beethoven, was something never to be forgotten; and, of course, as a composer he stands far above the others." Tonight the program covers a wide range In the selections, and will give the audience a splendid chance to judge of her excellent work as an exponent of the great masters. ORPHEUM. —The new bill at this house tonight will be a rattling good one, full of fun from start to finish, and fairly bristling with clever spe cialties. Of the four new features none will contribute more toward making this the best vaudeville show ever seen in this city than Mays and Hunter, the world famous banjolsts. These artists will present a turn the equal of which has never been given on the American stage. From the simple stringed instru ment they produce beautiful music, in terpreting the great masters and con cluding with an overture from William Tell. The Detroit Brothers are equully great In their line. They are the ac knowledged champion hand balancer., of the world, and will give a rousing acrobatic act that will ' catch on" im mediately. Fun wili rage at high tide when tlie jolly grotesques. Nelson, Glinseretti and Denionio introduce theii rollicking turn. They are as merry a lot of fun makers as ever provoked l a laugh, and they will give the best aerial com edy acrobatic act ever witnessed. Mile. Alberta, the pretty little witch of the wire, will add a diverting specialty on the slender steel. Those lively knock about comedians, the Horn Brothers, and jolly Joe Reeves will repeat their sensational laughing turn an* boxing bout. Herr Grais and his trained don key and athletic ape are also numbered among this week's attractions. Clayton, Jenkins and burro Jasper will do anoth er jaw-dislocating turn, and Colby and Way, the eminent comedy ventriloquist and his, novel dancing doll will close the excellent show. This week, Instead of the regular Wednesday afternoon performance, a grand Thanksgiving day matinee will be given Thursday. • » » LOS ANGELES THEATER—The Co rinne Extravaganza company, com posed of sixty clever people engaged in singing, danciig and merry-making in the big spectacular burlesque Hendrick Hudson, Jr., will be tne the Los Angeles theater Thursday, Fri day and Saturday evenings of this week, with a special Thanksgiving matinee and a Saturday matinee. The newness of the entire production, the large and brilliant ensembles and the up-to-dateness of everything are the characteristics that will Impress everybody who goes to see this really notable production. The company embraces the names of some of America's foremost comedians, burlesque and operatic artists. Among those specially engaged for this season are Joe Cawthorn. John Page. Neil Mc- Neil, John Park, H. A. Cassidy. John H. Connolly. Maurice Robinson, John F, Barry, Hermann Greinert. Octavia Barbe, Nelly Strickland. Anne Hutch inson, Helen Holden Welch, Arnoia Belleville and Lulu Cosgrove. The cho rus numbers thirty-six voices. The many features and novelties can be but lightly touched upon. A grand scenic effect is Immediately followed by some artistic specialty, which la suo cecded by a grand character ballet. The whole Is Interspersed with comedy and aided by magnificent surroundings which at times become fairly dazzling. It is conceded by notable musical crit ics that Corinne Is the finest lady man dolin soloist In America. She is an ex- cedent musician, and she has made this Instrument a feature of her studies. The sale of reserved scats opens this morning. ANTELOPE VALLEY. Direct Roads to the Gold Fields—Good Markets in Sight. Who says Lancaster Is a dead town? We are going to have a direct road to the gold fields, and that pretty pronto. Then we will be closer to these mines than any other producing section. Then we will always have a good market for our hay, grain, meat, poultry, butter, eggs, etc.. etc. The road Is a sure thing, for the men ard teams are out making It. They are prepared to finish it before returning. When it is done, it will not only open a market for Antelope valley, but will make Lancaster the last trading point for all the team travel from Los Angeles and the south coming up the Soledad or the Pan Franclsqulto canyon, for it will make an easy, direct route. A meeting of nearly &>1! the residents of Lancaster was held in the school house on the evening of the 12th, to hear the reports of the committees which had been looking into the matter. H. D. Roberson, George F. Duntley and A. D. Beery had done their work well. They had spent seven days In going over the different routes, and had visited the different camps in the gold fields— Randsburg, St. Elmo. Cow Wells, etc. They reported immensely rich mines out there, which would be permanent and prosperous as water is developed and mills are put In. They said the rich ore Is not confined to one spot, but extends far beyond Randsburg. From one ridge Mr. Roberson said he saw and counted over 100 new camps, which had been es tablished since his last visit a month previous. They say there Is no doubt about the richness and permanency of the mines, as there is enough ore in Bight to keep the mills running foryears, and new rich ledges are being constantly struck. A route was found and stakes were set along It where a good road could be built, over which an average span nf horses could haul 2500 pounds from Lan caster to Randsburg In two day's, and not encounter a hill needing a brake either way. Along this route water could be had at convenient places, except that a w ell should be sunk this side of Randsburg. W. 8. M»llok reported having con ferred with the Santa Fe officials, but could not get their co-operation in changing the stage line from Kramer to Rogers. After a full discussion of the matter, the meeting unanimously decided to go ahead and put the road through and de velop water along the route. H. D. Ro hersnn was appointed to take charge of tlie matter and solicit subscriptions. Sine then Mr. Roherson. with com mendable energy, got between $450 and .s'oo subscrlhed In money, produce, labor, etc. Yesterday morning Messrs. Roberson. G. F. and Frank Duntley. Frey-dendall and Kerr started out with fourteen horses, machinery and provisions, pre pared to put the road through. This will mean much for this section.—Antelope Valley Gazette. DISTURBED THE SERVICES. And When Put Out Fought Until He Was Landed in Jail. Al Holden, a youth who so far forgot himself as to raise a disturbance in church last night, is now an inmate of the city jail with a charge of battery to answer for. Holden made himself obnoxious in the Tark Congregational church, corner of Temple and Metcalf streets, during the services last evening, and J. H. Vening. one of the congregation sought to eject him. He got Holden as far as the (side walk when the lattar turned on him and with a straigt right bander knocked him down. As Vening got up he was floored again and a regular rough and tumble scrap ensued. Finally Holden was subdued collared and marched off toward the po lice station. He got as far as the corner of Beaudry and Temple when he stop ped, refusing to proceed farther. It was not necessary to force him, for by this time an officer had arrived from the cen tral station in response to a telephone message and carried Holden off in dis grace to jail. The fight created a great commotion In the church, and one woman fainted from excitement. Vening will be on hand today to swear to a complaint in the po lice court when the young hoodlum iF araigned. 1 1 HIS FRIENDS WERE DEAD. Old Thomas Davison Finds No One to Greet Him. Bent with age, crippled with rheuma tism, and so feeble that he could scarce ly walk, Thomas Davison, nearly SO years of age, was brought to the police Btation last night by a kind-hearted ex pressman. The old man was without a home or friends in a strange land. In a quavering voice, Davison said he had, only a couple of hours before, ar rived In the city on a Santa Fe train, coming from London, Canada. Two years ago he spent the winter in this city, stopping with some French-Canadian friends on Allso street. He decided this year to come out again, as he feared the long, cold Canadian winter. On arrival at the depot he engaged the expressman tn take him to the address on Aliso street. What was his surprise to rind strangers occupying the place, and inquiry developed the fact that his friend had heen dead several months and his widow had gone back east. Da vison had some money, but after trying several lodging houses and falling to get a room, was brought to the station. Clerk Gridley has a soft heart and ac cordingly took the old man In, had him given a bed in the receiving hospital, and wil today endeavor to find some place where he will be properly care l for. A UNITED STATES PRISONER. Deputy United States Marshal Oaks yesterday landed in the county Jail John C. McGregor, to be held as a United States prisoner. McGregor Is charged with forging a money order purporting to have been issued by the postmaster of Butte, Montana, payable at the office in Oakland. Cal.. to Mrs. Tena Erxhlg for the sum of ?o.
