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 clear and distinct manner.
"I think," said the principal, "that
you had better cut It a little shorter."

only down to my boot tops now!"
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."
The event Is to be oelebrated In immor

the Centennial state can find enough
rhymes for Popocatapetl.—Philadelphia

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.

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.

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.
