Is larger than that of the Examiner or the Express
and second only to that of the Times.

The secretary of the Southern California Automobile
club, in speaking of the late notorious fatality, says that
from the evidence In the case it appears to him that
liquor had most to do with the accident. And probably
many other automobile accidents hereabout might be
traced to the same source.
Now comes the ; report from New York that the old
Vanderbilt homestead on Staten Island has been leased
to a poultry raiser.' The old commodore .started In life
in the business of raising vegetables and poultry. The
present generation of his family confines its raising
habits to a quite different field.
The resolutions adopted by the automobile club are
commendable and they Justify The Herald's conclusions
heretofore expressed. But while the proffer of the club
will undoubtedly be helpful to the authorities, If ac
cepted, there is still urgent need of such an ordinance
as is now awaiting action by the city council.
The opinion Is expressed by leaders of the anti-saloon
movement that enough names have been secured to their
petition to insure a call for an election. But if only 15
per cent of voters has been secured for the proposition
in all the time the effort has been in progress the pros
pect for final success can hardly be rated as luminous.
Chicago has just elected to the important position of
city clerk one of its old-time baseball captains. That

Andrew Carnegie's latest offer of a public library
building in a Southern California city is for the benefit'

is rich enough to furnish, a library building from its own
resources. He is right. "

New Jersey statesmen have just heard, it appears,
of the fame achieved by Governor Folk of Missouri
in barring lobbyists from the halls of legislation. Two
Jersey legislators, as reported, are scheduled for a
Journey to Missouri to Jearn how Governor Folk's scheme
is worked. According to Missouri newspapers It is
worked as a play to the galleries, very much to the
amusement of higher grade spectators.
There is a pronounced Democratic tinge in the politi
cal spring coloring of tbe middle west. The big cities of
Chicago and St. Louis elected Democratic mayors and
Kansas City followed suit. Tbe greatest surprises, how
ever, were In the Democratic successes in Topeka and
other Kansas cities, which were "entirely unlocked
for," as reported. A pleasant surprise for William J.
Bryan was the election of a Democratic mayor in Lin
coln by about 800 plurality.
The chief purpose of President Roosevelt's outing is
a matter of small Importance except to himself. He
deserves a long rest from the trying ordeal to which ho
Is subjected at Washington, and his countrymen are
glad because he Is about to enjoy it. The nature of the
outing that he has outlined Is quite to his liking, and
his strenuous habits even in diversion are pleasing to
the American people.
But there Is a broader and infinitely more Important
feature of the outing, even though It be Incidental. It
Is Illustrated in the fact that the whole southland
through which the president has passed thus far was
made ablaze with patriotic enthusiasm by the touch of
his presence. Not In any of bis journeylngs In the north
has he been received with a heartier welcome than he
has met In the tour of the south. The land of the gray
has shown everywhere in Its greeting to the president
as intense love for all that ho represents nationally as
If he were a southerner of the southerners.
It is this evidence of utter elimination of thoughts
of. forty years ago that makes the president's recep
tion in the south especially notable. Just forty years
ago, almost to a day, was played the last act In the
awful drama of the Civil War, but all thought of it is
burled now by; the touch of Theodore Roosevelt's pres
ence. He is the central figure in the government of
the United States, and the south joins hands with the
north In the pledge of "the union forever."
The result of the municipal election in Chicago Is of
national Importance. It has a direct bearing on a ques
tion that has become of absorbing Interest to the peo
ple of every city and large town in the United States.
The Chicago election hinged mainly on the Issue of
municipal ownership of public utilities. That fact is ad
mitted by both the candidates for mayor representing
the leading parties.
The Republican candidate says: "The people of
Chicago became Infatuated with the idea of municipal
ownership and the majority of them cast their votes
that way."
The Democratic candidate, who was successful, says:
"Municipal ownership was the one great question before
the people of Chicago, and the returns very plainly show
how the majority feel toward the private ownership of
public utilities."
An opportunity now will be afforded for a test on
a broad and comprehensive scale of the municipal owner
ship proposition. That is what makes the outcome of
the Chicago election a subject of importance in other
American communities. No such test has been made
thus far in the United States of the method in question.
It has been introduced tentatively In certain cities of
this country, but in no one has there been anything like
a fair trial of the plan in a broad and general sense.
The Interesting question now awaiting solution by
Ihe new Chicago administration Is whether municipal
ownership will work on such a scale as satisfactorily as
its zealous friends think it will. In Chicago it la pro
posed, according to the program of the new administra
tion, to introduce municipal ownership and control of
the street car transit system as a leading feature.
Mayor-elect Dunne says he will "appoint a corps of
engineers to make a survey of all the street railways in
the city, so that we will know just how the city, when
It secures control of the lines, will be able to handle the
The only guide to a guess about how Chicago will
handle a transit system is a reference to the way mu
nicipal matters generally are managed in that city. Ac
cording to the hotly expressed view of the Chicago
newspapers the management of official affairs generally
is so bad now that it could hardly be worse.
If the plan now proposed, be. adopted for the opera
tion of the transit system several thousand public em
ployes will be added to the present number in Chicago.
Motorraen, conductors and other local railway operatives
will come under city control instead of corporation con
trol. Will this change be productive of "reform" in the
service or will If merely add to the official troubles and
tribulations of which the Chicago newspapers so bit
terly complain?
Several eastern cities with gas lighting grievances,
including New York and Chicago, are discussing what
they call the Massachusetts plan for controlling the
lighting service.
It seems that the Bay state is about twenty years
ahead of the other states in grappling with gas monop
oly. In 1885 it began a system of state regulation of
gas service, resulting In the creation of a commission
■which has "full charge of all matters connected with
gas and electricity except the prosecution of offenses."
The three commissioners are paid salaries which
are supplied in part from fees for meter inspection
and the remainder from assessments on the corpora
tions that are supervised.
In addition to protecting gas consumers by most
rigorous requirements the gas commission of Massachu
setts protects the stockholders and investors in gas
and electric light securities. Lighting companies are
not allowed to issue stock or bonds except for enlarging
plants and providing additional facilities. On the other
hand the company operating in each city is protected
from competition. The price of ga», however, is regu
lated by the commission on the basis of the company's
The Massachusetts plan is founded oh the broad
principle that a lighting franchise Is public property
and that the people are entitled to all the benefits from
its use. Starting from that basis the state maintains
complete supervision of the lighting companies, allow
ing only a fair profit on the actual cash investment.
The system thus briefly outlined has been in vogue
nearly a score of years, and it is said that complaints
about gas and electric lighting service are rare in
Massachusetts. When such complaints do occur they
are promptly investigated by the commission and If
well founded they are attended to at once,
Perhaps the most artistic hold up that has occurred
la Los Angeles for months was that in which a garage
keeper was relieved of his cash at night and then
obliged to furnish a big automobile for the escape of the
robbers. As the Ascot racing outfit has gone northward
it is probable that a stranded pair of touts took this
method to "follow the ponies."
It seems that arrangements have been made whereby
tbe president will be la constant wireless telegraphic
touch with his official start when he plunges into the
forest in quest of grizzlies and mountain lions. There
may be a rather confused message to the outside in
case of a lively encounter between the president and
ursus major.
The secretary of war has approved a pattern of a new
bayonet for the equipment of Infantry in the American
army. The new device is six inches longer thai/ the one
now in use, but a matter of a few inches will uot be im

Things In tn» realm of the womens"
clubs are at concert pitch now, the
acme having been reached recently In
Mr*. W. H, Housh of the Ruskin Art
club refusing to occupy a subordinate
position In the newly created art sec
tion of the stato federation, The posi
tion of honor, that of the chairman of
the state committee was bestowed on
Mrs, W. S. Bartlett by Mrs. J. K. Cow
les the newly elected Mate president,
As a matter of fact, the Ebell does
not possess an art section and Is no
way considered In that line. Th« Rus
kln club members, who shy at publicity
but who have been ardent students of
art for many years, feel that they have
been slighted. - '
"One would think," said ft prominent
member of the club recently, "that art
was a new study in Los Angeles, from
the way we have been Ignored. In point
of fact we have fostered art loan ex
hibits, studied the masters for years
and have received the benefit of the
knowledge of the great majority of our
members who have spent years abroad.
In our club rooms are to be found
many copies of originals sent us by
loving members who have not forgot
ten us In their travels."
However, overtures of peace were be
gun when Mrs. Cowles nnd Mrs. Oliver
O. Bryant, president of the district fed
eration met the executive board of the
aggrieved club after the meeting yes
terday morning. Nothing was accom
plished however, and the members of
the art club still maintain that their
president cannot with dignity accept
the subordinate office which the state
president and district presidents have
urged her to grace. ; , ♦ . :

devoted to not only pursuing the theory
but also the practice of art,

Such a funny thing occurred at the
theater the other evening. A group of
young women planned a girls' party
with a stately chaperone at either end
of the line.
The parents of one at first demurred
but finally agreed, the principal reason
given by the pater being the utter stu
pidity of a girls' party.
From a front seat in the orchestra
where he was ensconced with his wife,
the father of one of the young women
sought to catch her eye, He couldn't
though, but he Inadvertently caught
the eye of another young woman. Fi
nally the latter"s mother glowered at
him ns if to say "stop at once, sir; your
brazen staring at my daughter." Turn

the mistake, he said, "For goodness
