EVILS OF POLITICAL AGITATION It is true that all political campaigns more or less Interfere with the business of the country, and hence there hos tile feeling to their frequency. Time Is spent In holding meetings and In doing other political work which detracts from th* labor of those engaged in the vari ous productive industries and in trade. The evil is infinitesimal*, however, as compared l with the uncertainties which are caused by the agitation of thos* measures which relate to tariff and finance. While on those subjects legis lation should be so wise and Just as to assure long periods of rest, yet there has become a chronic disposition to either deal with them by comprehensive re vision or by amendments in a small way, at every session of congress, or at least when one party supersedes another in power. This disposition results from a clash of interests, and. constant strug gles by one class to secure advantages over others. That clash is now, as it ever has been, between the monopolists and' the mass of the people. It is to be regretted that there cannot be certain ties as to policies for the future, and absolute Immunity from fear of disturb ances of values and interruption of pro duction and' commerce, but such a con dition will not be realized so long as there is favoritism in legislation. It is better that there should* be uncertainty and agitation than that any consider able Injustice should be done. The Amer ioan people will never rest under ine qualities and Injustice, and until our politics respect the interests of the masses instead of those of the classes there will be continued agitation. There has been no cessation of political discussion since the late presidential campaign closed, and the indications are that it will be continuous from this time to the end of the next presidential cam paign. Perhaps the battle of IDOO will not so result as to give the country a rest thereafter. All depends upon what pol icies the people will them endorse and the means employed to influence or bring about the result. The masses would, not now be so restive were it believed that the result of the last election was brought about wholly by fair and' honorable means. The impression extensively pre vails that there was corruption through the use of vast sums of money contrib uted by corporations! and trusts in order that favors might continue to be con ferred upon them, and that other and non-American practices were indulged in to coerce the dependent classes. It is hardly probable that the revenue law passed upon at the present meeting of congress will be so satisfactory that the country will be content to let it re main undistubed. for any considerable time. At any rate present indications are not favorable to such a consumma tions. But should' it be otherwise, as is to be hoped, there will not be exemption from agitation, for there are other ques tions quite as important as that relat ing to tariff and Internal taxation. The money issue will not be settled with any degree of permanency so long as the country suffers from inadequacy of the volume of the circulating medium, and from the monopoly that the gold standard' gives to a small percentage of our population. It is to be desired, that the tariff question shall be so moved from arena of discussion that the money problem may be solved' without being involved'with any oth«r important question. There are depressions in business and dull times generally, and there is some cause for it, or it may be that there arc several causes. The people are intern en finding out the cause or causes which must antecede an intelligent discovery and application of effectual remedies The existing condition cannot have been brought about by natural causes. Tire •oil Is as fertile as it has ever been, j climate Is unchanged, the people are as ti telMgent a* they ever were, though hard times may tend to repress their energies, and there is a large surplusage of pro ductions. The conclusion, therefore, I* Inevitable that the hard times are re sult* of erroneous policies of govern ment and the toleration of vicious busl- n«*s methods. Until these policies and methods are displaced by those which are wiser and more just, there will be no cessation of agitation. THE NEW YORK INHERITANCE TAX Succession or Inheritance taxes have been imposed by European nations for a long- period of time. During the war of the rebellion the general government Imposed such a tax, but It continued only till 1870, when it was repealed. Cal ifornia and one or two other states have Inheritance tax laws. The legislature of New York has recently passed an act which has been signed by the governor, making the tax progressive. Estates less than 810,000 are exempted, and the tax Is progressive until it is ten per cent on all estates of 84,000,000 and upwards. We believe this is the first time that applica tion of the progressive principle hasbeen made in the United States. A graduated income tax has been advocated for sev eral years, and the doctrine has received indorsement in political platforms. The extraordinary disparity in the pos session of wealth which has grown up during the last third of a century at tracts wide attention, and has created in the minds of many a fear that If the tendency to Increasing disparity is not arrested there will be danger to the purity and perpetuity of Democratic in stitutions. Many years ago Daniel Web ster said "no nation can long remain free whose laws tend to concentrate it* wealth Into the hands of the few." Near the close of the war Abraham Lincoln said: "I feel more anxiety for the safety of my country now than ever before, that alt wealth is to be aggregated into tbe hands of the few and the republic destroyed." The founders of the government keen ly realized the danger from the aggre gation and perpetuation of wealth into the hands of the few, and hence the laws of primogeniture and of entailment were early abolished, and those of de scent and distribution enacted, which tend to break up and scatter estates on the decease of each succeeding genera tion. Those laws have had that effect to a great extent, but there have grown up practices which defeat their operation, and which are the incorporation of es tates and the making of wills which practically create entails. Graduated income and succession taxes have the ef fect in a measure to prevent aggrega tion and perpetuation of wealth in few hands. There are other grounds upon which such taxes are defended. We have long since recognized the principle that taxa tion shall be uniform and equal, and our laws have ostensibly been framed In ac cord with it, but In their execution the principle has often been ignored. This is a fact not unknown to intelligent peo ple. Whatever the laws may be, it may be expected there will be more or less frauds and evasions so long as dishon est or inefficient officers are appointed to execute them. While the principle of uniformity and equality is good, as far as it goes, there Is another that should be added, and it Is that taxation should be imposed In some degree with refer ence to ability to bear the burden, which is a humane and Christian prin ciple. There are some valid arguments against an income tax which have no applicability to an Inheritance tax. Heirs or devisees have no natural right to the property of their deceased ances tors or devisors; it belongs to the com munity, a theory that obtained in prac tice in the early stages of the human race. The laws of descent are founded on respect for the affection which a de cedent had' for his children, blood rela tives and friends. No man has a nat ural right to anything except what he earns and a share in those elements which have been created for the common use of all. To tax an inheritance does not take from anyone that which he has earned!; it does not embarrass in busi ness or check enterprise. It is a tax which Is easily collected, and in the col lection there can hardly be fraud or eva sion. The person who Is the beneficiary of the laws of depcent and bequest© should not complain if he is required'to give some-thinc to the support of a gov ernment which treats him so gener ously. I t Is best both for the mat's and each individual that all sliould begin life as nearly equal as practicable, so far as the possession of wealth !s concerned. Love of dominion over the things of earth is a stimulant to exertion. Those who In herit what satisfies them are not apt to exert themselves; in fact, it is more often than otherwise that the sons of very rich men end. their lives' where their fathers began. Great achievements in the professions, In war, statesmanship, science, art, literature and buslneashave in the main beer, by the sons of those who were poor or in moderate circum stances. New York is a good state In which to make the experiment of a progressive inheritance tax, for the greater number of men possessing ponderous fortunes reside there. TRY THE NEW PLAN The New York Times told the truth when it said: "Payment of what are called political debts is almost invariably made, not out of the debtor'spooket, but at theexpenseof the public." It had, un doubtedly, the San Pedro harbor case tn mind. Mr. Huntington was one of the largest contributors to the Republican campaign fund last year, and up, consequently, one of the Republican party's largest credit ors. The interests of the people demand a harbor at San Pedro, and congress has LOS ANGELES HERALDt MOWDAY WaKTOWG; VJK& % Wl ' appropriated money for It Mr. Hunt ington did not want the harbor at Ban Pedro, and so he drew a sight draft on hi* credit with tbe Republican, administra tion to have the appropriation Mopped Secretary Alger, one of the department political cashiers, promptly accepted the draft and hung up the appropriation. Thus payment was made, "not out ot the debtor's pocket, but at the public ex pense." Ths Times goes on to explain a new plan devised by Governor Atkinson of Georgia, of whom It says: He bestows upon his creditor* the title of colonel—not colonel of any thing, but lust colonel In th* abstract. It is an excellent scheme. The gov ernor Is saved from the charge of In gratitude, the bearers of the title have to live up to it, and therefore be come eminent and respected members of the community, and their neighbors are put to no trouble or loss whatever. Now, why cannot President McKinley and Secretary Alger steal a little Demo cratic thunder and settle their political debts after the same fashion? Let Mr. Huntington be Invested with the title of Boss Baron, or something of that sort, that sounds well; let him wear the In signia of the Great Octopus. Grant him armorial bearings with the motto, "In trusts we trust." Let him have any old title that is lying around loose. But no, the Republican party does not cancel its obligations after that fashion. It pays its debts at the expense of the public. The rejection of the arbitration treaty by the United Statessenate will cost this country 81,000,000,000 within five years, according to the opinion held' by a di rector of the Bank of England. He says that English capital to the amount named will be withdrawn from the United Stateson account of the rejection of the treaty. This is probably a British witticism. National pride never caused English capital to let go of a good thing. And even if "the worst should happen" it should be remembered that English domination over the financial system of the United States ceases when Its capital is withdrawn. It Is not neces sary to lose any sleep over the matter. "The citizens of the United States," says Speaker Reed in the June North American Review, "have, as a rule, only vague ideas of the methods adopted by the house of representatives to do Its part of the legislative business of the country." On the other hand, the people, as a rule, have very clear Ideas as to how the house does not do Its part, and that is what is worrying them. Tire tariff bill Is only 211 pages long and the senate has only about 200 pages more to consider. The country is to be congratulated upon the splendid pro gress that is made. There is every room to believe that the bill will now become a law by July 1, 1898. An Arkansas legislator has been fined $100 "for shooting at and missing an ed itor." Wae the fine for the shooting or because the lawmaker missed, or does It cost more to shoot at editors than at other human cattle? The McKinley law of 1890 did'not main tain prices, They fell all through the period of its operation. A high tariff-law by another name*is not likely to do any better. The Seventh, New York's crack mil itia regiment, visited Boston last week and was "cheered on Its way to church." "Peace hath its victories, no less than war." All protective tariff legislation must be in the nature of a compromise. It is wrong to compromise the right, and it is not right to compromise the wrong. The nomination of President Seth Low of Columbia university to be mayor of Greater New York ought to give his sup porters high, low. Jack and the game. Dr. G. Hamilton Griffin says he Is "playing in hard luck." The doctor has simply taken a dose of the same medi cine he prescribed for his victims. To the naked' eye there is no appre ciable difference between "the Bryan panic" and "the McKinley prosperity." A Clash of Ideas She read her essay at the rehearsal in a clear and distinct manner.

She thought he meant her graduating frock.—Cleveland Plain Dealer. A Poet's Chance for Immortality A Colorado girl has climbed to the summit of Mount Popocatapetl and there sung "The Star Spangled Banner."

IRRIGATION-GOOD AND BAD While there !■ no better advertisement of the great resources of Southern Cali fornia than a place Irrigated In economi cal, neat and effective style, there are few worse advertisements than bad Irri gation. The Idea of irrigation among those who have never seen It generally ie that it Is a sort of a makeshift by which one who Is foolish enough to per sist In living in a desert may) scratch something out of the ground to support a wretched existence without rain. That it Is an improvement on rain so great that one who understands it would rather never see 'a drop of rain fall ex cept on the mountains that supply him is a conception quite novel to a stranger. The consequence is that wherever he sees bad work of any kind from irriga tion he thinks it the fault of the system, the land, or the climate. The last thing he thinks of is that it is the fault of the irrigator. Los Angeles city shows some very .fine Irrigation and also some of the worst. The place of Mr. Forman, on Pico street. Is one of the finest speci mens of good irrigation by flooding to be found in the world. The checks or basins are large and regular, almost a perfect level on the bottoms and so fed that a body of water can be quickly spread over the whole of a very thin sheet which In a short time wets the whole evenly and uniformly to a depth exceeding that of any ordinary rain. In a few hours the whole Is almost diy again upon the top, leaving no resem blance to a swamp, no suggestion of malaria or any of the objections sup posed to apply to irrigation, but showing as clean and neat a place as any, with a productive power far In excess of what can be done on any rainfall in any coun try. Some of the lawns of Figueroa street that are so leveled) that they may be quickly flooded by a good head of water from the cement ditch in front, are as fine as any that can be made by the eprlnkler, while the difference in the cost of management Is very great. Still greater Is their ablitity to stand drouth. Lawns so treated will look well for days and often for weeks in very hot weather when those that have the roots trained to the surface by constant sprinkling will lose the brightness of their green in two or three days of very ordinary weather. With a few days of neglect or shortage they are In such bad codltion that It may take weeks to restore them. whereas those trained by flooding are easily brought back if they fail a little from want of water. While there are many places like thepe In Los Angeles, the majority are the other way. Within the city limits one can see more bad work than in almost any other part of Southern California. The bad oranges that abound in so many quarters are almost wholly the result of bad methods of watering, for there is nothing In soil or climate that ehould make them bad. Although it is not the best of the orange belts, a good orange can still be raised here. But a good one cannot be raised anywhere in California by bad work. Orchards of other fruits, making a very poor showing solely from bad irrigation, are almost as common as those that injure the reputation of the country from having no water at all and no cultivation. Too much water or even the right amount wrongly applied will spoil the yield and especially the appearance of any kind of an orchard. And even alfalfa, which should do very well anywhere in or around the city, has in many places a dilapidated look, resulting solely from too much water or water allowed to stand l too long or too deep upon it. Outside the city irrigation is much the same in the western part of this county. Ac we approach Pomona It grows much better and In the counties of San Ber nardino and Riverside the finest work in the world can be seen on every hand. The success they have had in selling land and the high prices sustained by the landfe on the falling market of the col lapse of the boom have been due almost wholly to the fine showing made on every hand. The neat and beautiful work done at Redlands in imitation of Riverside and Highlands has had as much to do with the rapid' settlement," of that place as anything else. On the other hand it is as certain that places having as good conditions for fruit growing have been held back by bad? work that stronger* could not un derstand. The stranger buying land Is much like the capitalist buying bonds. He wants no explanation. He demands a clean slate. The more you have to ex plain the worse oft you are. That is why Redlands sells land at euch high figures. Minneola, with good soil, good water and climate like that of Antelope valley, has been cheated out of at least a year's growth by allowing persons ignorant of the first principles of irriga tion to take a head of two hundred inches of water and turn it loose on dty soil with a slope of twenty-five feet to the mile without either grading or checking and then plant things on the ground so unevenly wet. In Kern and other counties, on the San Joaquin, ther'. are dozens of places ruined with alkali and many of them abandoned, simply spoiled from excessive and ignorant use of water. It is the same in other states and Pecos valley. New Mexico, with rich soil, grand waterworks and plenty of water is "hoodooed" into several years' sleep simply because any stranger who ee-es it will swear the soli Is too alkaline for any uee. It is merely ruined with bad irrigation. While California shows the best Irri gation In the world there Is no excuse for any of the wretched work we see. The water supply of Los Angeles is am ple and can be had In heads convenient for the best work. The soil, climate and all permit the best and' the beet Is the greatest advertisement we can have, and bad work is the worst. T. S. VAN DYKE. THE PUBLIC PULSE (The Herald under this heading prints communications, but does not assume re sponsibility for the sentiments expressed. Correspondents are requested to cultivate brevity as far as is consistent with the proper expression of their views.) Judge Lynch and His Ways To the Editor of the Los Angeles Herald: I should like to make a few re marks concerning the attitude of vari ous papers toward the mob that lately executed the rape fiend at Urbana. Ohio. When we remember the revolting cli - cumstances of the crime; the character and standing of the lady assaulted by the vicious colored brute infected with the most loathsome of diseases; the fact that the laws of Ohio affix the death penalty for such a crime; the fact that the self-confessed brute was merely sen tenced to twenty years of luxurious ease : | in onset our modem palatial, justly cel ebrated and most papular prisons, with the prospect of early release and the op portunity to repeat the orlrae, we may have enough of human sympathy and common gratitude to thank th* surviv or*.of the mob of Urbana, and to *rect a decent slab of marble In memory of tho*e who died for th* cause of the chas tity of their wive*, mother*, stater* and womankind In general. A local journal intimate* that if Wm. McKinley had been governor of Ohio at the time of th* catastrophe he would have sent enough soldiers to Urbana to annihilate the mob before it could have hung the brute in question. In the light of recent development* It seems that he would have done »o; but It also appear* that McKinley ha* revoked all the local powers of attorney granted to those who tried to speak for him concerning any matter whatever. The same journal Intimates that the people of the southern states are law less. A» a matter of fact and of record, the people of the southern staUs of the union have fewer criminals and punish a greater per cent of what criminals they do have, than any other part of the civ ilised or uncivilised globe. With Inimitable consistency the jout nal already alluded to appears today with large headlines announcing that "Durrant and Worden will doubtless die of old age." If Durrant had butchered two girls in a southern city two years ago, as he did in San Francisco, he would have been a quiet and harm!, corpse for the last two years, and California and all th» world would have been spared a va*t expense and enough demoralising liter ature to ruin a generation. The people of the south are lovers of justice and low taxes and they have enough chiv alry to defend their women. When they are absolutely certain that the wheels of justice do not revolve because they have been oiled with an Improper fluid, they put their shoulders to the wheels and they revolve with great and com mendable celerity. If "Dr." Hastings and Lilian Hattery had faced fate in a southern city, Doc tors Bryant, MacGowan and Rebecca Lee Dorsey might not have been called upon to give the most peculiar and astonishing testimony ever given by social favorites in a court of Justice or injustice. EDWARD L. HUTCHISON. June 6. A Revolution of Husband* To the Editor of the Los Angeles Herald: I notice that the eternal ques tion which was started in the Garden of Eden and is.llkely to be found within the gates of Elysium has lately been agitat ing the minds of "Paterfamilias," "Vox Popull" and others in the east. The dis tinct declension of the popularity of marriage is no doubt the source of this correspondence. Young men, it Is claimed, do not propose with as frequent readiness as they used to, and young women are prone to carve out a line of life for themselves and to seek inde pendence, at all events for a season. That admirable philosopher, Socrates, was notoriously cynical concerning marriage, but he was equally cynical concerning bachelordom. "If you marry you will regret," said the sage to Plato, "if you don't you will regret also." Ol course, like every other event of im portance in human affairs, marriage is a lottery, but the risk of drawing blank or worse than blank 1* largely eliminat ed by judicious selection and probation ary companionship for some time. It is so difficult for the susceptible young man to distinguish between love and fancy that there is little wonder many discover to their cost that they have undertaken a contract which it will be exceedingly difficult and Unpleasant tn faithfully fulfil. The "model husband" is found more frequently In America than anywhere else, but the tyranny that the wife so frequently exercises and the implicit obedience that she is «o prone to exact are also not equaled in any other country. It is more than doubtful if this su premacy that the American woman so often demands Is conducive to the hap piness of the home and it does not seem to be natural. The exactions of and bossing by the wife must be the cause for many of the divorces which are so notoriously common in this country and In this state. Do you not think, sir, that it is time for the meek American man to escape such undignified fhraldom? It seems to me that a revolution of hus bands is inevitable if man is ever to re tain the position in the home which be longs to him by right and which he oc cupies beyond question in other spheres. Too many of us, I fear, are entirely able to look after our own interests at the office or in the market, but fall lu men tably when we have crossed the threshold of our own houses. HENPECKED. June 5, 1897. The Bight Sort of Kan Senor Andrade, the new Mexican con sul at Los Angeles, Is the right sort of a man. On the 21st inst. the Manufactur- ers' association of that city holds a meeting, and Senor Andrade says he will urge upon that organization the sending 1 of two energetic representatives to Mex ico for the purpose of drumming up trade for Los Angeles. The consul says there is business in his country to be had for the aeklng, and that the mer chants of Los Angeles are entitled to It This is an object lesson for San Francis co. There is business in Mexico that be longs in this city, in the sense that San Francisco has the best facilities for get ting it and holding it. But it will be nec essary to be awake, to utilize every ad vantage, and to overcome every opposi tion. Beautiful resolutions and ponder ous whereases will hardly fill the bill. The people at the south use a different sort of ammunition to bring down their trade.—San Francieco News Letter.
