WHAT IT MEANS
The action of the council last Monday
ln summarily removing General Forman
from the police commission on the
trumped-up pretext of ineligibility has
caused a great deal of indignation on the
part of fair-minded citizens. The false
and trifling grounds alleged need only to
be stated to be condemned. General For
man was removed, forsooth, because it
was charged that he is a member of the
directory of a street railroad company.
If he were all that is asserted we fail to
see why it would render him ineligible
for the office ot police commissioner.
As a matter of fact, we are informed that
Genera. Forman la not a director of any
street railroad,, but that he If an honor
ary director in the Terminal Railroad
company. What is there in that to pre
vent him from doing his duty a? a com
mlssioner? A more beggarly excuse for
an indefensible action w as never alleged.
It shows the brazen nS'sntranee of a ring
of marplots who had made up their
minds to do a thing in defiance of public
sentiment and did not much care whether
they gave a reason or not. If the public
did not like It, the'pubilc be d—d; that
was- their motto.
If we look for a motive for this inde
cent and arbitrary action of the council
manic combine, the most apparent seem?
to be that General Forman had approved
himself something of a martinet; that
he had inclined to a rigid enforcement
of police regulations; that he had been
the means of depriving a set of quasi
ofßcials of the ©tars which gave them
dead-head privileges on street railway
lines and at the theaters, ar.d, finally,
that he had instituted measures to find
out whether the members of the poiice
force know how to write intelligibly. The
surface presumption is that all these
measure© of discipline had so wrought
upon the members of the police force and
accesory servitors that, with one mighty
exercise of their political pull, they de
manded the removal of General Forman,
and. presto, tjie c'ouncilmanlc forest bent
before the blast!
No doubt the men who are responsible
for this political coup would be glad to
have the above taken as an all-sufficient
explanation of their conduct; but we
think that one who looks beneath the
surface can find more in the plot.
The removal of General Forman is
but a step in a systematic scheme to
capture the entire police commission ar.d
place it in the hands of subservient tools
of the manipulators. That accomplished,
the present chief of police would get his
walking papers and the entire force
would be converted as soon as may be
into a political machine. A boss with
such a little army at his disposal—with
the purpose and the opportunity to levy
tribute upon the saloons, the gamblers
and the fancy houses—might speedily
attain the commanding position of a
Tweed or a Buckley.
This is the real milk In the cocoanut.
This is the scheme that has hatched out
in the brain of siome ambitious politician
who thinks he Is a bigger man than
Hervey Llndley. The greedy grab for
the appointive offices under the board
of health, undertaken and successfully
accomplished by the council a short time
ago, is a part of the same business. If
the scheme Is allowed to develop in Its
own sweet fashion, the "gang" will soon
control the patronage of the entire city
government and Los Angeles will be in
the grasp of one of the most hungry and
most conscienceless rings that ever
fattened upon a municipality.
It is time for citizens who know what
that sort of thing means to rouse them
selves and adopt the most vigorous meas
ures for self-protection. The Better City
Government league should step to the
front and assert Itself without delay. The
Herald has no purpose to play the alarm
ist,, but in the belief that the situatlor
Is really critical it urges all good citizens.
Irrespective of party affiliations, to makr
themselves heard and felt in a movement
to balk the designs of the new political
ring.
OUR CITRUS FRUIT INDUSTRY
The work Southern California
committee on citrus 'fruits before the
senate finance committee at Washing
ton Is bringing to public attention some
very valuable statistics regarding that
Industry.
W. C. Fuller of Colton has prepared
a valuable statement, from which we
gather some facts not generally known
regarding the extent of the citrus fruit
business in this state and more partic
ularly ln Southern California.
The orange and lemon crop of 1896-7
for this state is put at 7000 carloads of
300 boxes each or 2,100,000 boxes.
The number of bearing trees Is placed
at 1,460,096, and therefore the yield is
about one and one-half boxes per tree,
and counting 100 trees to the acre each
acre yields an average of half a carload.
The total number of acres planted to
oranges ln California Is as follows, allow
ing 100 trees to the acre:
Counties. Acres.
San Bernardino 10,014
Riverside 8,411
Los Angeles 7,516
Orange 2.270
San Diego 1,146
Ventura 617
Total for Southern California 30.001
Balance of the state 4.244
Total for the state 34,248
From careful estimates, Including In
terest on Investment at the rate of 8
per cent per annum on a valuation of
$1072 per acre for the land, trees, Im
provements and tools, and a yield
of one and a half boxes of oranges per
tree, the cost of producing a box of
oranges ready to pick Is $1.03; the cost
of picking and packing the oranges and
putting them on board the cars, 31 cents
per box; freight to the eastern market,
90 cents, and the cost of selling 12 cents,
making the entire cost of raising and
marketing the orange crop a total of
$2.36 per box.
The number of lemon trees is given at
1,196,908, covering 11,969 acres, estimating
100 trees to the acre. These trees are dis
tributed as follows:
Counties. Acres.
San Diego 3.4 M
Los Angeles 2.577
Santa Barbara 1.437
Riverside I.SH
Ventura 976
Orange 559
San Bernardino ill
Total for Southern California 11.072
Balance of the state 597
Total for the state 11.969
Southern California from this report
has 30,004 acres devoted to orange or
chards and 11,072 acres devoted to lemon
orchards; or a total of 41,076 acres de
voted to citrus fruits, or a total of 64
sections of land —less than two town
ships.
It is estimated that a fair yield
of oranges, in a good orchard prop
erly located and properly cared for,
is a carload to the acre. Mr. Fuller Is
conservative in placing the yield at half
a carload per acre. On this basis the
orchards now planted, when they come
Into tearing, will produce annually over
20,000 carloads of oranges and lemons.
But many of these orchards are not
properly located and properly cared for;
some of them are in the wrong kind of
soil; others are ln the wrong kind of
climate, subject to damaging frosts;
many of them are owned by men w ho do
not give them the proper attention,
hence they will hot produce even the low
average fixed in this estimate of half a
carload per acre; but, on the other hand,
many orchards are producing more than
this estimate and hence it is fair to
assume that the orchards now planted
will give average returns of half a car
load per acre when they come into
bearing.
If the government gives this industry
a tariff of 1 cent per pound, or 60 cents
per box—sl9s per car—there will be no
difficulty in finding a market for the
entire crop from California at an average
or $300 per car or a total of over $10,000,
--000 when the orchards now planted are
in full bearing. Even this output would
r.ot meet the present demand for this
; class of fruits In the United States, which
j demand is now at a low ebb because of
I 'he depressed condition of bueir.ess. Not
| only this, but if the public demand for
j citrus fruits In the United States ln
! creases in the next twenty years as It
has in the past twenty years, the present
acreage of citrus fruit orchards infCali
jfornia will have to be more than dupli
cated to supply the markets.
SELFISHNESS RUN TO SEED
Dr. Jordan, of the Stanford university,
if to go to Alaska again this summer to
i meet the British Government's represen
; tatives, who make reports year by year
j about the seal herds of the Northern Pa
cific. Mr. Chas S. Hamlin, assistant
j secretary of the treasury, is not informed
j under what instructions Dr. Jordan is
jto act, but says, he "is to observe the
| habits of the seal and study the methods
I employed by the seal hunters."
In the interests of science it is hoped
that Dr. Jordan will set out for the north
early in the season. Unless dispatch is
; made it may be too late to observe much
of the habits of the seais. As to the
method employed by the hunters, that
Is not so important, as it is a matter of
record covering a period of 300 years.
When the New World first became
known to Europeans, seals abounded in
hundreds of spots all the way from Alas
ka to near the South Pole. There were
few scientific people of the college pro
fessor type in those days on the high
seas to study closely the habits of the
seals, but there were hundreds of bold
British adventurers full of the same in
stincts of thrift which today animate
the Canadian pelagic seal hunter. Theirs
are the same instincts as these of other
clashes of pirates. They employed the
same methods three hundred years ago
that they employ today. It is very simple.
The main point is to kill your seal. An
Irish head at Donnybrook :air would
have as even a chance to escape whack
:ng, as the seal has to escape death. It
ivas not a question of sex, age or condi
tion of pregnancy with your bushwack
er of the sea. A seal's head appears on
LOS ANGELES HERALD, WEDNESDAY MORNING, KAY % %WI
the surface of the sea, and bans; goes a
missile to end its days. It may be a
mother followed by her young, and it
may be a baby seal. It may be one
chance in ten to recover the dead animal,
or one ln ten that the skin is good for
anything, if it is recovered.
The result ot this simple "method em
ployed by the seal hunters" has been to
kill off herd after herd from a thousand
of their Island homes, until the Prlbylov
Islands and one or two rookeries ln Rus
sian territory are all that remain. Rus
sia maintains her seal, rookeries in a
very good condition by stationing well
armed cruisers near them during the
season and making short and uncere
monious work with all poachers. The
great northern Bear has a poor opinion
of commissions composed ot harmless
college professors.
As to our own rookeries, they are
yearly becoming thinner and thinner of
seals. Commission after commission
studies and observes. The British rep-
I rese-ntatlves are usually most amiable
I and suave diplomats, who allow ourpro
jfessors and -commissioners to observe
'and study to their hearts' content, so
long as we allow Canadian pirates to go
jon with their pelagic sealing, killing
I mother and baby seals ln the same
Indiscriminate slaughter and get
ting one seal of every seven they
shoot, lest a beautiful garment may cease
to adorn the female form divine. A great
and profitable Industry may be wiped
off the face of the seas. An army of fur
j dressers in London may lose their Job
and starve. So long as these selfish
! Canadian pirates may pursue their
nefarious methods no one seems to care.
j But it Is well Dr. Jordan 1© to get away
i soon to Alaska. He will "observe the
habits of the seal," and that will be a
I comfort to those' who come after the
Canadian pirate has accomplished his
] perfect work, and killed the last mother
j seal and her. baby. College professors
lln the sweet by and, by, when there are
no peals, will read Dr. Jordan's.book with
interest.
BRAMACHARIN'S PROTEST
Had the gentleman from the antipo
des, whose official designation appears
in the caption, only recognized the dizzy
immensity of the task that he under
took when he bearded a woman's con
gress in the hall of its sessions, he might
; today be a comparatively happy Brah
min. This exponent of a philosophy
that is older than the pyramids, and
quite as mysterious to the average
i western scholar, has been the recipient
of great attention wherever he has
chosen to lecture ever since his arrival
in California. Being a high-caste
Brahmin at home and a sort of meta
physical lion- abroad, he became, in some
degree, Impregnated with that sin by
which the angels fell. In other words,
the Brahmacharln became ambitious to
dictate. This ambition was not in it
self unworthy, and might have focused
in some of our western shortcomings
with telling effect if it had been directed
by good judgment. But the Brahmin's
Judgment was bad. and his discretion
; was worse than his judgment. No mar.
of even average Judgment would
; ever attempt to raid a Bva
i cyclone with an expanded ur
n] brella in the hope of changing its
! direction, and this is about the equiva
! lent of the Brahmin's onslaught in the
woman's congress. Of course the Brah
min was right in his reference to the
modern society hat. Half the newspa
pers of the country have been waging
an unavailing war against the befeath
ered flower-garden hat for half a life
time. Ministers of the Gospel have de
nounced it; theater-goers have indulged
in profane thoughts in its presence; leg
, islatures have proscribed it, and even
nature, represented in the incarnated
' poetry of her myriad feathered song
sters, "Slaughtered to make a Roman
holiday," records her mute protest
against the ghastly adornment.
In another direction the Impolitic
Brahmin was probably right. He found
himself in the presence of a convention
of reformers. The speakers were decid
edly able and learned. Excepting only
the paper read by Mrs. Gardener, the
discussions were temperate. Unfor
tunately, Mrs. Gardener's paper was of
j the "tyrant man" order. Its side allu
sions, also, tended to proclaim the per-
I tonality of the speaker somewhat ob
; Iruslvely. Now, the eastern reformers,
; like all the reformers of the west who
' have ever succeeded in producing any
permanent good results, have invaria
; bly been persons of great self-denial,
whose first acts in the sphere of refor
mation were - the renunciation of every
feeling ar.d every sentiment of selfish
superiority. The Brahmin believes, as
;\\e of the west have been taught, that
precept can have but little effect, ex
cept as it is enforced by example. Here
he found precept of a high order, with
the Oriental example of humility left
1 out. Not only was the example that
! his special training demanded wholly
! absent, but he found instead that
; which he regarded as worse than non
existent example. He found minus
j example expressed in dress and in ad
dress. In the presence of so much
pomp ar.d circumstance at home in
India, he would have soliloquized:
"Whit's parasols and elephants mad
with pride!" Little wonder that the
simple, sincere, mendicant Brahmin
should have lost his self-control! But
this he surely did, and elapsed into
rudeness descending to abuse. Yet he
taid nothing that our wesrtern evangel
ist, Sam Jones, has not said and said
with greater emphasis.
There can be no manner of doubt
that anions the members of the woman's
congress are to be found some of the
grandest characters of today, and if the
Hindoo's wild reproof should impel some
of these to examine the logic of his
protest, the work might not be alto
gether unprofitable.
CHARITY AND ENTERPRISE
It Is an unwelcome task to have to re
cord that there is danger of the schemes
for tho relief of the unemployed com
ing to an untimely end. The committee
has already been compelled to discharge
a large force ot needy men and the work
that promised such splendid returns
threatens to be foreshortened. Cltlsens
have universally realised that the mo
ney they contributed to the unemployed
fund was? seed admirably sown In the
most fertile ground. Not only were they
administering to a pressing necessity
in feeding the hungry and covering the
thinly clad, but they were raising monu
ments that would be both a credit to
the city and a valuable Investment to
every citlsen.
The excellence of the work has been
generally recognised. Must It be cut
short by lack of sustained interest?
The scheme was blessed with a bril
liant birth. For several weeks thou
sands of dollars rolled Into the coffers
of the Merchants' and Manufacturers'
association, and every dollar was well
spent, repaying the contributor ln the
double measure of judicious charity and
valuable enterprise.
Now comes the natural pause. The
pristine enthusiasm has waned as was
Inevitable. The "cheerful givers" have
already responded generously to the
fund. Much good work has been done,
but much more waits to be done.
The immediate question that confronts
the observer of the situation Is: Have
all the available sources for replenish
ing the revenue been exhausted, have
all the channels of charity and enter
prise been discovered and utilized? •
Los Angeles had good cause to con
gratulate herself on the ready response
that was at first made to the cause.
In comparison with other cities the effort
was a noble one. ■ The reproach that
It was spasmodic and cannot now be
sustained will be grievous.
If there be a man who can spare a
dollar and has not yet contributed, or
if there be those who have the means
!to increase their subscriptions, let them
[ make a final rally to render this noble
I work as substantial and permanent as
I possible. •
The ambitious Baltimore Sun contests
with the worthy Philadelphia Ledger
the doubtful honor of being the largest
publisher of obituary poetry in the
country. Some of the "verse" printed
is calculated to galvanize the corpse of
the helpless subject. The following, in
which the rank and file of the hosts of
heaven are made to act as guide posts
to the future world, is a fair sample:
"The angels nearer and nearer came,
When father s!ck did lie.
And gently fanned his faded cheeks
And pointed to the sky."
But who points the way to the other
place?
The details of the most dreadful dis
aster by fire in Paris yesterday will be
read with a thrill of horror. The flower
of the French aristocracy Wavgathered
at a charity bazaar; in twelve minutes
the most cruel death had decimated
the brilliant assemblage. The appall
ing suddenness and ferocity of the
flames worked a ghastly havoc, and to
day the gay capital is a piteous scene
of mourning. The fearful risks that
people too often run in crowding in
buildings of inflammable material and
dangerous design are seldom but aw
fully realized.
The Dingley bill was promptly report
ed to the senate yesterday with certain
radical and commendable alterations.
A few of the most palpable Iniquities are
either eliminated or qualified, including
the offensively arbitrary retroactive
clause. The tendency of the e<er.ate com
mittee generally has been to modify the
adamant barriers of the bill, which will
not be called for debate for another
two weeks. It is now-proposed that the
date for the bill to take effect shall be
the first of July.
Greece in recalling Colonel Vaesos from
Crete has taken the first step toward
cessation of ostiiities with Turkey and
reconciliation with the powers, but it is
possible that a final battle may be fought
at Pharsalos if only with the hope of re
deeming the grievous damage done to
the prestige of Greek arm©by the rout at
Larlssa. In any event the indications
are that the miserable and unequal con
teat cannot last many days longer.
The completion of the census gives
Los Angeles a population of 102,760 an M "
an immediate and important benefit
from the count is already reported. Af
ter July I,Postmaster Mathews is author
ized to employ eight more mail car
riers.
Thunder and lightning and rainstorms
of real water have long since been in
troduced on the stage. It is not surpris
ing, therefore, that genuine rainbows
are now a part of every first class dra
matic stage-carpenter company.
There are men of whom It is said that
they do rot know enough to go in when
it rains. Yet an intelligent horse in
Denver, being left out in a storm, delib
erately made for the sidewalk in order
to get under an awning.
Hard times have been felt even by
the effete monarchies. The shah of
Persia has been badly hit. His harem
has been reduced down to sixty-three
wives. He naturally looks forward to
a business re-wival.
The Brahmacharin having confessed
that certain ladies in interfering with
himself have "trod upon a rattlesnake"
should now again seek the seclusion of
Santa Monica Canyon for a comatose
period.
A Georgia woman is credited with

The Old Greek Costume
Men often wore the hlmatlon alone,
without chiton. The chlamys, another
rectangular garment, shorter than the
hlmatlon, weighted at the corners, and
fastened by a brooch so that one corner
hung down ln front, was worn by men,
with or without the chiton. It Is espe
cially well shown In the horsemen on the
frieze of the Parthenon.
Occasionally Diana or an Amnion,
wears the chlamys, but It Is the distinct
ive garment of the young Greek.
Bands, belts and fillets were much
worn. Men and women wound fillets
around their heads. Women wore, offer,
under their chiton, a breast band ad
justed below the bosom, not to compress
the form, but to protect the organs. In
deed, there was no temptation to com
press the waist, the flowing drapery veil
ing that part of the anatomy. The band
which confined the short, or caught up
the long, chiton, was also of rich cloth,
but the outer belt, holding in the loose
folds of the upper part of the long chi
ton, was often of gold enriched with Jew
els ,and always beautifully adorned.
Great care was taken of the hair. In
deed, a mysterious virtue was supposed
to lie in the locks which, carefully wash
ed and perfumed, were one of the bodily
graces of the Greek.' Women often wore
elaborate head dresses; many were re
vived in the latter part of the eighteenth
century and the first of the nineteenth.
Out of doors the head was covered either
by folds of the peplos brought over the
head and around the throat, or by a sep
arate veil, sometimes thick, sometimes
thin. —Arthur's Home Magazine.
His Grandmother's Gift
Men who have reached exalted posi
tions in life should never forget that
others are struggling along the path
that they have traveled) with more or
less pain, and should show a little indul
gence; but whether treating a struggler
favorably or unfavorably,' it Is always
best to be cautious. Probably a well
known colonel ln Berlin seriously
thought of this after a certain mistake
he made at a state ball.
A young lieutenant who wore a single
decoration, a large badge richly set with
diamonds, attracted the colonel's at
tention, and in a supercilious manner he
asked:
"Young man, what Is that decoration,
pray?"
"An order, Colonel," replied' the lieu
tenant.
"An order? Dear me, I don't know it."
"It's an English order, Colonel."
"Oh. yes, yes, but who ever gave it to
you?"
"My grandmother."
"Your grandmother!" And here the
colonel burst Into a fit of laughter that
lasted a couple of minutes.
During the Interval the young lieuten
ant, unabashed, stood calmly by look
in;: atihim. »
"But—er—young man, what Is your
grandmother's name?" finally asked the
colonel.
"Her Majesty, Queen Victoria, queen
of England," replied the young lieuten
ant, who was Prince Albert of Schleswig-
Holstein.
The colonel left the ballroom suddenly
and was seen no more. —Harper's Round

IF
If all who hate would love us,
And all our loves were true,
The stars that swing above us
Would brighten in the blue;
If cruel words were kisses.
And every scowl a smile,
A better world than thiis Is
Would hardly be worth while;
If purses would untighten
To meet a brother's need*
The load we bear wojild lighten.
Above the grave of greed.
If those who whine would whistle,
And those who languish laugh.
The rose would rout the thistle.
The grain outrun the chaff;
If hearts were only Jolly,
If grieving were forgot.
And tears and melancholy
Were things that now are not-
Then love would kneel to Duty,
And all the world would seem
A bridal bower of beauty,
A dream within a dream.
If men would cease to worry.
And 1 women cease to sigh,
And all be glad to bury
Whatever has to die—
If neighbor spake to neighbor, .
As love demands of all.
The rust would eat the sabre
The spear stay on the wall.
Then every day would glisten-
And every eye would shine,
And God would pause to listen,
And lite would be divine.
