•; President Roosevelt is billed for an address at the
annnal ~ banquet of the New York Press club, January
.13. It is ; intimated • that he will take advantage of the
opportunity to outline certain features of his policy in
tho new administration. '
. . Traveling by stage up north, is quoted as having
certain drawbacks to pleasure recently. At one point
a stage. that fortunately contained no passengers was
overturned in crossing a small stream swollen by heavy
rains, the driver narrowly escaping with his life.
I: President Roosevelt's New Year's ' greeting to the
American people Is characteristic. He says: "All I
ask is a square* deal for every man. Give him a fair
chance.'^Do not let him wrong anyone, and do not let
him .be wronged." And the people's response is, "So
liioto It be." ..-,
The paleontological , sharps of the state university
report the finding in Nevada of "a sheep-like form of

Wisconsin and North Dakota have ■ abolished the

Sacramento reports that "When the legislature
meets on Monday .. the ;.members ■ will' find nearly^ slo,--*
000,000 in the vaults of the state treasury." It is hoped
that when ; the legislature adjourns the accumulation
will . show ' no shrinkage as a result of such grafting as
disgraced the legislature of 1903.
: On the eve of the legislative assemblage at Sacra
mento it is' stated that the contest for Senator Bard's
toga is practically narrowed to the senator himself and
Candidate Flint. It may be inferred, consequently, that
the northern scheme to wrest the . senatorship from
Southern California has "petered out."
The usefulness of milk in a new line has been tested
in Philadelphia. A dairyman's house caught fire and

Even in its reception to the new year Los' Angeles
gave evidence of its rapid growth. Never before in the
'city's history was there bo great a chorus of shrieks
from steam whistles. In the increased volume of those
shrieks, year after year, the expansion of the manu
facturing industry of Los Angeles is marked.

Indiana at last Is moved to erect a monument on
the site of the battle of Tippecanoe. It was that bat
tle, in great part, that made the hero of It, Gen. Will
iam Henry Harrison, president of the United States,
it. is doubtful if Benjamin Harrison ' would have
pulled through in his presidential race but for his
"grandfather's hat."
It seems almost incredible, but it Is a fact, never
theless, that nearly one-third of all the deaths In Los
Angeles county during 1904 were so-called coroner's
cases. The number of such cases for the year was
512. It Is not to be understood, of course, that all the
cases thus grouped resulted from violent deaths. Of
the whole number, 221 were found, on examination of
the coroner, to ba due to natural < causes. But there
■was nearly one death by violence, in the average, for
*very work-day in the year, the total number being 291.
■ An Important decision was handed down by the
supreme court at San Francisco last Saturday pertain
ing to tho obligation of lighting companies In the mat
,t*r of fixing prices for Illumination. The issue turned
on the Tight of the city of Pomona to demand a reduc
,tion of the rate charged by the local gas company,
which was $1.60 per thousand feet The decision is
summaVtced by City Attorney Loucka of Pomona thus:,
"The effect of the' declalon is to sustain the ordinance
ofthls city fixing rates for gas. Under the decision
a city may not only fix the rates, but may conduct a
criminal prosecution to secure the enforcement ot tho
ordinance fixing them." The decision is of general appli
cation and fits Los Angeles as well as Pomona.
Itev. ■ Robert Burdette declared with great vebe
nience, in a sermon yesterday morning, that the deter
mination iof the people of Loa Angelea to construct a
library; building in a portion of Central park was
"wicked— wicked— wicked!" And then he conjured up
• Picture of Los Angelea children playing In the Btreets
because thoy; were to be deprived of their park play,
grouud. The genUe humoriat ahould *tlck to the facts,
which are that only a Bmall , portlou of the park Is to
ba used for, the* library building and that the remainder
of; the park la to be a more beautiful and attractive
playground aud breathing «pot for the people than ever
before. We are afraid ■, that Bro. Burdette '.was ' : think-
Ing more of hia pretty sentence and practical sentiment
than of the exact facts of this case.
Tho new municipal administration of Los Angelea
will be Installed under most promising auspices. It
will take up the reins of municipal government with
the assurance of cordial support from the people of
an classes In every effort conducive to the public wel
fare. There will be no distinction In that support on
partisan grounds nor on any account whatever. Tho
new administration is in part a non-partisan product
and no thought of politics, bo far as the people are
concerned, will enter with it through the portals of the
city hnll.
It Is of the highest Importance to the present and
future Interests of Los Angelea that the new city offi
cials shall have the manifest encouragement and tup
port of all citizens at the outset of their public service.
They should have substantial assurance of the solid
backing of the community In all good works. They
should feel that they are not to bo targets for censor
ious criticism, that there is no disposition in any
quarter to pounce upon them on making the first trivial
mistake. The people of Los Angeles do not expect
infallibility In their public officials. But they rlo ex
pect and demand honesty, efficiency, faithfulness and
at all timra loyalty to tho public welfare.
Tho mayor and the 'city council, who are most, con
spicuous In tho public view, have no cause to apprehend
captious fault-finding by any class of well-meaning
citizens. Mayor McAleer goes Into tha executive office
with tho consciousness that there is no partisan di
vision, in the support of which he is assured. All
citizens have taken him at his word in saying that he
means to give Los Angelea "the best that Is in him."
That Is all any man can do. Every citizen metaphori
cally takes the new mayor's hand in token of satisfac
tion with that promise.
What is said here in respect to the mayor applies
just as appropriately to the council and to all other
city officials. AH citizens recognize the fact that the
lot of the councilman is not a particularly happy one at
best. None but an angel could go through a term In
the city council without displeasing some people, and
the angel would be likely to shy at the proffer of an
other, term. A more intimate association between the
people's representatives in official station and the lay
representatives of public interests would no doubt be
productive of good results. That is to say, the discus
sion of vital municipal questions by members of the city
government on one side and members of commercial
and civic organizations on the other side, would yield
beneficial results. Not that the business or civic as
sociations should be called into counsel on ordinary
matters of public concern, but that there should be at,
> say semi-yearly, periods, interchange of \iews • regard
• ing questions of paramount importance, such as the
extension of the water system, the improvement of
lighting service, the betterment of streets and the gen
eral beautifying of the city.
Such association of public officials and representa
tive laymen through the medium of a banquet, for in
stance, two or three times a year, would unquestionably
be advantageous to public interests. The exchange of
views and discussions on important questions resulting
from such meetings would be helpful to the officials and
would encourage them in giving, as Mayor McAleer
says, the best that is in them.
Whatever makes for the weal of Los Angeles has
the backing of every good citizen. Public officials,
commercial, religious and social organizations, and all
individuals as well, should pull together with a will.
"Inthe common purpose of adding to the greatness and
glory of Los Angeles.
WORTH MORE THAN $1,000,000
The local weather forecaster made a -, very-con
servative statement last Friday, when he said a good
downpour of rain in this section would be worth J1.000,
000. The downpour came quickly after the opinion was
given, and possibly the forecaster's hint suggested a
providential New Year's present to Southern California.
However that may be, the downpour was ' one of the
most copious that has visited this section in recent
years, and it was worth a good deal - more than
• The Herald's reports show that the rainfall on Satur
day extended all over Southern California, varying con
siderably In volume in the several districts, but of im
mense benefit everywhere. In the orange belt it was
just what the growers have been praying for these
many weeks. At the eastern end of San Bernardino
valley the whole country was thoroughly soaked and
the mountains are covered with a foot of snow. The
orange growers in that section, and throughout the
whole orange belt, were never in better form than they
appear to be in since the rain.
The year 1905 is not likely to pass into history as a
year of drouth, semi-drouth or even deficient rainfall,
in the land of sunshine.
The public land fraud investigation. at Portland has
reached a sensational stage In the indictment by the
grand jury of one of Oregon's United States senators
and one of its representatives in the lower house of
congress. The removal by President Roosevelt of the
federal district 'attorney for Oregon .adds to the ex
citing aspect of : the situation.
j It is well to remember, in relation to the alleged
culpability of Senator Mitchell and Representative
Hermann that there has been for years the most bitter
animosity between those gentlemen and Secretary
Hitchcock of the department of the Interior. The trou
ble between the parties dates back to Hermann's In
cumbency of the office of United States land commis
sioner. It Is no Becret that Hitchcock was instrumental
in edging Hermann out of his former office.
But whether Mitchell and Hermann are guilty or
not of "conspiracy to defraud the United States govern
ment out of public lands," as charged in the grand
jury's Indictment, there is no question that colossal
frauds of that kind have been practiced for years. Not
only in Oregon but In California, Washington and some
of the mountain states there huvu been glaring dis
closures of such frauds. Secretary Hitchcock admits
thai he has been for a long time cognisant of the gross
mismanagement of the public land service, but he falls
to explain why he delayed so long to set in motion the
machinery for stopping the frauds,
But how carefully the land fraud flame was smoth
ered until after the presidential election. AH the par
ties prominently connected with the frauds, as thus far
revealed, are leading Republicans.
It Is said that Tom Lawsuit Is preparing to explode
a financial bombshell In .Wall street. He should have
touched off thu fuse at the moment of the new year's

Only Remaining Member of First
Session Tells of Life and
Work of former
Special services /were held yesterday
morning at the . ImHanuel Presbyte
rian church on the occasion of the un
veiling of the mural tablet erected to
the memory of the late Rev. William
John Chlchester, D. D., founder of the
church. There was a large congrega
tion and 'much, interest was manifested
In the service. Special music was ren
The Rev. Hugh K. "Walker, the pas
tor, made brief remarks regarding the
special features of the services and In
troduced Lyman Stewart, the only re
maining member of the first session of
the Immanuel church, who had been
chosen to perform the ceremony of un
veiling the tablet. '.
■Mr. Stewart said In 1885 the pulpit
of the First Presbyterian church ■ be
came vacant through the resignation of
its pastor, the late John W. Ellis. The
church had on its roll 225 members,
thirty-five of whom "were Chinese. Cor
respondence was instituted, resulting in
the securing of Dr. Cnichester from a
much larger pastorate in the east.
Growth of Church
At the end of three years of Dr. Chl
chester's pastorate the membership had
Increased' to 800. The church now be
ing too small' to accommodate the con
gregation, Dr. Chlchester asked for a
larger church. This the . members of
the church did not, feel ready to pro
vide, and hence the organization of the
Immanuel church, with 105 members
from the mother church, the organiza
tion being completed in 1888 with 130
members. Lots were purchased an-l
the present church was built and paid
for during the period of financial strin
gency. In 1897 Dr. Chichester was
called to a pastorate in Chicago, being
succeeded jby the present pastor, Dr.
Walker. He died In 1903.
Following Mr. Stewart's remurks, he
unveiled the tablet nt the right of the
pulpit, which' bears ''the^ inscription'::

mon. : ".' . ■■'•■.'; ,
> Father Doyle, who is an eloquent
speaker as well as, a man of literary
attainments, took f«r his subject the
work to which he has devoted his life,
that of the Paullst order, especially in
giving missions and explaining the doc
trines'of the Catholic church to the
non-Catholics. ' ■„ ■' '
"Time is the most valuable commodi
ty we possess," said Father Doyle. "It
is considered by. the Creator of such
worth that he never gives us a second
moment without taking away the first.
Standing today at the beginning of a
new year, the deeper things of life are
opened to us. The passing of the world
about us impresses us with the pro
found truth that after all there are but
two great things in this life— God and
the soul. Everything else. when put in
the balance with these two are but as

"New Tear Timidities" was the sub
ject of a New Tear's sermon preached
by j the- 1 Rev. Frank DeWitt Talmage
at the First Presbyterian church yes
terday. •. -■'.■•
From the text "He that observeth
the j wind shall not sow " the Rev.
Mr.' Talmage spoke in part:
. What a change there is in our way
of keeping the holidays from that of
olden times! The old-fashioned New
Tear's and the old-fashioned Christmas,
the old-fashioned Thanksgiving day,
were as different from their successors,
as the poke bonnets and loose skirts
and powdered curls .of Colonial j days
were as different from their successor
of the milliners and dressmakers and
hair dressers . of miidern times. .
What you need, ■ oh man, at the be
ginning of this New Tear, Is to take
a big inventory, not of your misfor
tunes but of your blessings. ■ Find
out ■ all the bright things . you know
about your life. Repeat them over
and over' and over to yourself. Get
faith In God and in yourself. Then
your associates will get faith In you.
By their Increased labor you will get
faith in them. Then, together with
faith in each other, and faith In -God,
you will go forth with renewed zeal for
the seed-planting and the multitudi
nous harvest will, surely come. Never
let your associates know that you b*e
lost faith In yourself.
Take courage. All will yet come out
right. "He that observeth the wind
shall not sow." Shall not we. on this
New Year's Sabbath , press oh .with
glorious anticipation for the gospel
seed-planting at hand, which- w|U ul
timately mean our harvest ahead? I
pray God that this coming year may be
the best of years to all of us, as it
will surely be tho last of earthly years
to some of us. A Happy, Happy New
Year! ' . . ' . .
