THE HERALD'S CITY CIRCULATION
. Th« Herald's circulation In the city of Los Angeles
la larger than that of the Examiner or the Express
and second only to that of the Times.
With a new $5,000,000 gas company, comprising many
of the most financially solid and progressive citizens, it
• looks as if Los Angeles might ere long have "gas to
I burn."
Today the library board will ask the council, as re-
,; ported, to have the library site In Central park cleared
'for the, building. That looks encouraging. Now hurry
.l up the date for making the dirt fly.'
Bakergfleld announces the first earthquake visitation
• .of the year in California, So long a time has passed
f since this state experienced a fairly good shake that it
is fast losing its reputation abroad for seismic attrac
tions. •
The first electric railway franchise to be sold under
the twenty-one year limitation will be offered April 10.
It is for the East Seventh street line. Construction
work will be pushed directly thereafter by the railway
company.
The proposed new bridge at Seventh street will be
a handsome steel structure, fifty-seven feet wide. That
■Width will allow of double railway and wagon tracks,
with a footpath wing on each side extending beyond the
main structure.
■ A horse from Ascot park named "Grafter," as re
ported from San Francisco, won the Thornton stakes
on Saturday. The movement of this element to the
northern city gives hope that race grafting in Los An
geles is near the end for this season.
;■ Pasadena is introducing a municipal novelty that Los
Angeles would do well to Imitate. It is proposed to ap
point a "tree warden" for the Crown city,' who shall
have supervision of all trees on public streets, with
the object of stopping tree butchery by electric linemen.
The proposition to transform the old Mission road
from a sixty-foot thoroughfare to a 100-foot boulevard
is in line with the new era of road building In Los
Angeles. The city's most glaring lack will be over
come by such improvements and the more of them the
better.
Now some medical experts in the big cities claim
that apartment or flat houses induce insanity in women
because of the comparatively close confinement and the
monotony of life. It seems to be generally agreed
among these doctors that the apartment house is a flat
failure.
The Bible tells us: "To everything there is a season
and a time to every purpose under the heaven." In
the streets of Los Angeles, for instance, there is a time
to fight dust and a time to flounder in storm water.
Just now comes the interesting reminder that there
is a time to see the circus.
Luther Burbank, the California botanical wizard, haa
been appealed to by manufacturers who are in search of
a variety of grape having a large percentage of tartaric
acid, which is "sour enough to make a pig squeal." The
kind that the fox in the fable could not quite reach
might meet the requirement.
~The "equinoctial storm" is due today according to the
■old notion of a storm being a sort of necessary adjunct
to the equinoxes. At 2 o'clock this morning the vernal
equinox occurred, which is the moment when the sun
croseed the plane of the earth's equator, causing the
day and night to be of equal length.
Best of all results from the storm is the news that
comes from the mountains, which are the natural reser
voirs for the storage of water. In the mountains at the
eastern end of the San Bernardino valley the precipi
tation thus far is nearly three feet, enough to store a
water supply sufficient for two or three years of irri
gation in the valley.
The arithmetical rule of proportion cannot always be
depended upon. For example, as stated in yesterday's
Herald, the squirrels In the window of The Herald
office had "traveled 14.3 miles since Tuesday." That
makes the guessing problem easy for the school boy
at first thought: As four days to 14.3 so ninety days to
the answer. But squirrels do not travel on an exact
time schedule.
Certain eminent American dentists In London, it
seems, are getting the cream of practice from the
nobility. The fact is cabled from London that "Lady-
Kingston .has come from Ireland with her little boy.
Lord Klngsborough, In order that he may consult one
of the great American dentists." His little lordship
could get his eyeteeth scientifically cut by coming to
Los Angeles. 1
An apology ia due from The Herald to Mr, Albert
Bteiufleld of , Tucson, whose position in the Harcourt
caße was reversed in a recent Herald item. Mr. Stein
fleld is the man who prosecuted the case, having been
the victim of the awlndle. He Is a prominent citizen
. ot Tucson, a gentleman of Irreproachable character, and
"tae : item; referred to was simply a regrettable blunder

LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, MARCH ao, 1905.
COUNTY DIVISION A MENACE
Is the secret out concerning that mysterious county
division act passed by the legislature and now ia the
hands of the governor?
There has been but little doubt from the first that
"an African" was concealed somewhere In that wood
pile. The unexpected passage of the measure and the
lack of any perceivable need for it at once caused pub
lic suspicion to be aroused.
The explanation given out was too flimsy for «erl
ous consideration. It was to tho effect that certain
citizens of Santa Clara county wished to secede and set
up for themselves, and that certain other citizens near
the eastern border of Lor Angeles county had a similar
ambition. Neither of these propositions had sufficient
force to Justify the passage of a state law whereby any
county In the state might be easily dismembered.
But now come revelations indicating that railway
interests converging hereabout are the real factors' in
the county division scheme, and that they have a
specific purpose In view that is vitally important to the
city and county of Los Angeles.
It is nothing less than a scheme to dismember this
county by the secession of San Pedro, together with a
large sweep of coast territory.
According to the pending division act, it only would
be necessary, in order to effect such secession, for 60
per cent of the voters in the seceding district to declare
their desire to set up a new county.
If the scheme so outlined is the salient pupose of
the act, the mystery of its passage at once becomes
clear.
The railway interests, looking to the great com
mercial future of San Pedro and its harbor, desire a
free hand in shaping everything connected therewith.
Experience teaches those interests that Los Angeles
will protect other industries from railway domination
ns far as possible.
But with Los Angeles eliminated and a county
erected on the coast line, the railway interests would be
in absolute control of both Ban Pedro harbor and the
rest of the coast within the limits of the proposed
county.
Possibly the assumption here noted Is erroneous,
but it certainly looks plausible. There can be no mis
take about the danger, however, that would result from
the enactment of the county division measure. It Is
vicious at best, a "snake in the grass," and the gov
r.tor can do the state no better service than by kill
ing it.
MODERN RIVER BRIDGES
Since it appears positively that no loss of life re
sulted from the Seventh street bridge disaster, it may
be that the flood's sweep at that point was another
of those alleged "blessings in disguise." The destruc
tion of the shaky and unsightly old bridge surely will
prove to be a blessing If It leads to the construction
hereafter of river bridges that are not architectural
frights.
For the application of this stricture see the ugly
wooden concern that spans the river at Fourth street,
which was finished only a few weeks ago.
If we may rely upon the expressed views of a prom
inent councilman, a new era In our city bridge build
ing will begin with the construction of the new bridge
at Seventh street. In yesterday's Herald Councilman
Kern- was quoted thus: "The city will have to stand the
expense of the best structure that can be put up; the
railway company doubtless will be willing to go in on a
joint proposition and pay one-third of the cost."
Another member of the council is credited with
saying that "the city should erect a bridge at Seventh
street which will meet the demands for years to come
and which will be a credit to the city."
At various times, particularly when the wooden eye
sore at Fourth street was projected, The Herald has
urged the importance of erecting such ornate modern
steel bridges in Los Angeles as are seen in all progres
sive cities of the east. Nothing goes farther toward
beautifying a city than handsome steel river spans.
Los Angeles has been slower than any other city of
its class in recognizing that fact.
But the time has ' come, evidently, for. Los Angeles
to overcome the glaring defect in its bridge structures.
A handsome modern steel bridge at Seventh street
will be an object lesson calculated to make citizens
eager for the displacement of all the pueblo era bridges
in the city.
LOS ANGELES AS VENICE
The people of Los Angeles are not amphibious, as
newly arrived strangers lately here had some reason to
suspect. Citizens do not paddle through watery streets,
after the manner of ducks, just for fun.
The lakelets that have been in evidence the last few
days are only temporary water deposits. Alameda
street is not a reversible land thoroughfare and river,
adapted to wheeled vehicles one day and aquatic craft
the next. All this to set aright the natural- suspicions
ol visitors to Los Angeles for the first time who ar
rived here last week.
The evidence of provincialism which strangers have
witnessed in our flooded Btreets has been a source of
mortification to all citizens. Such an ■astonishing con
dition, as viewed by dwellers In eastern cities, seems
incompatible with all else that is seen in the down-to
date aspect of Los Angeles. It is hard to reconcile
such pueblo characteristics in a city of metropolitan
pretension with a population of 180,000.
But if our visiting friends will kindly forgive this
glaring present defect in local conditions— this wretched
travesty on the play of Venice— Los Angeles will
promise that the spectacle never shall, occur again.
Before the coming of another winter, unless some
unexpected obstacle intervenes, the street lakelets and
the Alameda street river will be gone forevermore.
The change thus promised will result from the com
pletion of a comprehensive system, now in progress,
for carrying away beneath the ground surface all storm
water. But for the fact that this Improvement involves
a vast expenditure of money it would have been con
summated years ago. The need of it has been sorely
felt every winter, but the great cost involved has
caused action to be deferred from time to time. The
ever increasing urgency, however, at lest made the
work imperative, and there is scarcely a doubt that it
will be completed well before "the end of this year.
Los Angeles in the role of Venice positively makes
its last appearance this season.
■:..\ ; i
Ban Dlegans Are elated by the prospect of an ex
tt ns'lon of the Gould railway system from Yuma to
San Diego. Direct eastward railway communication
would be "the making" of the southern city.
Having successfully handled the public utility ordi
nance the city council should be able to tackle with
confidence the pestiferous garbage problem. There is a
rather close analogy between the latter and one phase
of the gas company's oflen»e— that of pouring its nasty
refuse into the river bed, as complained of by the AlUo
afreet bridge contractor.

NOVEL REHEARSAL
AT THE BELASCO
ARTISTS PLAY "PARSIFAL"
THIS MORNING
After Close of "Tom Moore 1 ' Last
Night They Were Called To.
gether to Rehearse for To.
-, -; ;.pV< n
night's Offering
A full dress rehearsal of "Parsifal"
was held at the Belasco theater this
morning. Immediately after the per
formance of "Tom Moore" last night
the scenery and properties used in the
Irish comedy were cleared away and
the ponderous drops and set pieces of
the dramatic version of "Parsifal" were
set up. The orchestra was under the
direction of Edward D. Lada, the
musical director of the Alcazar theater
of San | Francisco, who came here
especially to prepare the musicians for
their work In "Parsifal." ,'.-";»
The wonderful Wagnerlan overture
was, commenced at 12:30 o'clock this
morning, and then the actual work of
Frederic Belasco and the players un
der his supervision was commenced. At
the conclusion of the first scene of the
second act— about 2 a. m.— lunch was
served to the ISO people engaged In the
performance. The rehearsal was con
cluded several hours later.
The rehearsal developed the fact that
the Belasco company Is splendidly qual
ified to give a fine performance of "Par
sifal" tonight, when the first perform
ance In Los Angeles of the world
famous Wagnertan work will . be pre
sented. The advance SRle of seats Is
said to be really enormous— fully six
times as great as for any of the
earlier Belasco stock company produc
tions—and the interest that has been
manifested by theater goers of the city
Is keen.
The management of the Belasco thea
ter calls especial attention to the fact
that persons who Intend to witness
the performances of "Parsifal" should
be In their seats by 8 o'clock in the
evenings and at 2 o'clock at the Thurs
day and Saturday :natlnees to hear the
great "Parsifal" overture, which will
be rendered in its entirety.
At the Grand
In spite of the rain yesterday after
noon a large crowd was turned away
from the Grand. AH of the' standing:
room was sold before the curtain went
up.
"Beware ot' Men," which is the new
offering at the local playhouse, Is not
the sinister play of dark and evil vil
lainy that the title might suggest, but
merely the same old story of the erring
"child of nature" rescued by a. young
minister and welcomed home at last.
The "minister" got In. as much
"chinning" as any real brother of the
cloth, a good deal too much to suit the
clamorous gallery, who ungallantly
muttered something about "closing his
face."
Auda Due, as the "child of nature,"
was sufficiently lackudaislcal and lacrl
mose. She comes home, with her little
grip, In the middle of a "down east"
winter In a traily, "too lovely" white
thing that is modestly low-necked, and
the gallery howled a glorious welcome
when papa took her In his arms.
The other parts, with less chances
for effect, are as well taken, and un
doubtedly the piece (Fitzgerald Mur
phy's), will play to a good business.
It is a play bald and sapless and
trite to the last extreme of even melo
drama, and If sensitive souls frequented
the Grand It would hurt them to hear
line old hymns and big biblical truths
so dished up.
The questionable morality of the err
ing one's flnal rejoicing, too, one might
object to. But a Grand audience does
not object, and "Beware of Men" *s
flashy title will draw a crowd.

TIME TO DETHRONE
THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
Record of Corruption In the Legislate
ure an Indication the Party Haa
Outlived Its Usefulness
LOS ANGELES, March 18 (Editor
Herald):— As an old resident' of Cali
fornia 1 am prepared to believe that
our last legislature was one of the
weakest and most corrupt that ever
assembled In this state. It is true that
It expelled four of its members for
bribery, but how much better were
some of their confreres who voted for
the expulsion! The late unlamented
legislature contained a few honest and
conscientious men, but they were in
a most discouraging minority.
After the bribe-taking members
were expelled a bill against gambling
was voted down and another against
prize fighting. Two of our southern
members succeeded In railroading most
obnoxious bills through both houses.
One of these prevents a city owning
public utilities— gotten up in the inter
ests of monopolies; and the other for
bids a municipality to go outside the
county for Its water supply. How such
bills could have gotten through even
that sleepy legislature without a pro
test from some one ia mysterious. How
much other devilment they did time
alone can tell.
Never before has a legislature met In
this state that so lavishly scattered
the taxpayers' money in paying ofl
political debts. It wrh understood in
the beginning that not more than
about $600 a day was to be expende.l
on clerk hire, pages, etc., but it soon
ran up to about $1200 a day. It seemed
to have an overweaning desire to
break Into the treasury and spend all
the money it could; and then it had the
impudence to propose' an amendment
to the constitution to double or treble
the pay of legislators! *,
The corruption unearthed In the na
tional government, in congress, the
army, etc., within the past few years
Is anything but assuring. It shows
that the Republican party is honey
combed with corruption and " moral
rottenness.
As an old-time- Republican I am
compelled to admit that we have
reached a period in our national life
that Is alarming. The early history of
the Republican party was good; none
better; but its long ascendency has
attracted the worst elements of , so
ciety and many of the most corrupt
and' vicious men living have grown
up in it. With it the spoils of office
have became paramount.
Coming to municipal affairs, what
have we? Without specifying cases
take our last city council as a whole.
After The Herald had lashed the re
tiring members and repeatedly warned
the new council in . relation to its duty
to the people In curbing the rapacity
of oppressive monopolies that charge
enormous rates for exceedingly poor
service, our present council passed an
ordinance to take effect nearly one and
a half years in the future! If it Is not
influenced by these great monopolies,
why this delay? Everybody knows
there is no more excuse for its remain
ing inoperative until July, 1906, than
it is for July, 1920.
The Republican party is in power in
the nation, Btate and city, and it has
beer^ for nearly two generations. It
has become the "Old Man of the Sea,"
astride the body politic and the people
have little to hope for until it Is de
throned.
It has outlived its usefulness and
ought to be decently buried. The
country is ripe for a change and anxi
ous to attend the funeral. Like po
tatoes, its best part has long been
under ground. ,
