THE HERALD'S CITY CIRCULATION The Herald* circulation In the city of Los Angeles It larger than that of the Examiner or the Express ■nd second only to that of the Times. Population of Los Angeles 201,249 Prof. Haeckel says if men have souls so have apes. .Well, some men would make one think so. Even John D. Rockefeller had to laugh at his own assertion that he wasn't a "selfish monopolist." To ,T. R.: If you and Nick really want an armistice get word to Oyama. Never mind Llnevltch; ho is going too fast. All this talk of the awakening of China doesn't eeem so Improbable as It did before Philadelphia's slumber was broken. The Rev. B. P. Lee must believe in the "church mili tant" living up to its title. He has organized a militia company in his parish. The pistol as an aid to bill collecting is out of place in Los Angeles. The man who needs one must have doubts about his account. The meat magnates are quietly slipping away, pend ing a real investigation of the beef trust. How about that, young Mr. Garfleld? Having dog catchers to catch dogs, we must now catch 1 the dog catchers who catch puppies. So the good women of Chester place argue. . ■ . In Chicago they report that a little girl's life was saved by an automobile. Anything may happen in Chi cago. Also good liars live there. The Los Angeles Woodmen now in Milwaukee for their convention report that they are perfectly at home there. The city is full of palm gardens. . Olga Nethersole, the actress, is coming back to America. The customs— or health — officers should see that her plays are well fumigated and disinfected before she lands. You can be made a prince In France for $4000. You're a "prince" in America for less than that if you'ro a good spender. Look at Walter Kcott of Death valley, for instance. The Washington Post wants to send Adjt. Gen. Sher man Bell of Colorado over to run the Norway Job. It isn't that sort. Send him to Chicago, where his peculiar talents are needed. Let's see, wasn't Russia going to drive England out of Tibet? And Afghanistan? And India? And take Persia for good measure? Not to say eat Christmas dinner in Toklo? Seems like it was. _~ """ "When she won't, she won't," might have been writ ten about City Librarian Jones. She has been ousted, but she still holds the keys. And it is now "up to" the board to make the next move. It might as well be understood that Henry James, the book writer, is no kin to the Hon. Frank James of Mlzzoura. The language the latter gentleman used in denying the possibility was altogether too direct, keen, lucid and cutting, not to say emphatic, to permit of any relationship with the turgid, involved style of Hank Jim. 1 The plan for a new park in the block bounded by First, Court, Hill and Olive streets is a most sensible scheme. The present condition of this region Is a great detriment to the neighborhood and it depreciates prop erty, yet the cost of razing It is prohibitive. Make a park of it and the whole vicinity will be vastly benefited. "Do it now." A BAS THE PISTOL-TOTER It is time for the plßtol toter to go. He has no place in a decent, civilized community. He is an excrescence, a nuisance, a danger. He breaks the law of man in carrying a weapon and the laws of God In using it. He should be suppressed, here and now. There may have been Rome right, Justice and reason in carrying a revolver In the early days of Los Angeles — though even that is doubtful. Perhaps the crudity of the early civilization, the lack of law enforcement, prop erty protection and one's own safety lent an excuse for the possession of a pistol a quarter of a century ago. That has no bearing on present facts. The thing is that no one save on officer of the law now has either right or Justification for going armed. There is no need for pistol toting in this refined, highly lawful and decent community. The man who does carry one defies the laws of the city and state and should be punished therefor. .;'•/.! • Last week furnished a bloody chapter of crime for citizens to ponder over. Homicide, suicide, assault, attempted murder, succeeded one another almost daily — in fact, some days chronicled more than one such affray. In nearly every case the pistol was the effective weapon and the gun-user was the aggressor. The result is self evident; had the pistol been eliminated the crimes doubtless would not have been committed. The moral is equally plain— suppress the man who carries the "gun" and the crimes will tak« care of themselves. And these breakers of civil and moral law can be suppressed. It will take some good police work, but It can be done. Certainly it Is worth trying. The bloody calendar leaf of last week Is a red signal of warning that should be heeded. Btop the toting of pistols and prevent another such disgraceful page in the city's annals. LOS ANGELES HERALD t MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 96, tgo* STOP THE CHINESE CONSPIRACY I More than 16,000 Chinese la the United States ar« armed and are drilling to perfect themnelrM In military Uctlcs. They h&T« formed themselves Into an army; hare tried— -and In «om« cases with »ucce»§— to Induce Americana to assume their - leadership. They have about perfected plans for a secret mobilization In the well-nigh Inaccessible mountain recesses of California and, Nevada. Their avowed object Is to upset the pres ent government of China, a friendly power, depose its rulers and violate and break down th* United States exclusion laws. These astounding facts were brought out In a way precluding doubt or controversy In The Herald yester day. They show a most surprising state of affairs. They Indicate that the laws of the United States are being violated with Impunity. These conditions would seem to call for prompt and decisive action on the part of both the United States and the state authorities. The laws of the former are extremely plain in the matter. Not even In times of war between other countries do we allow men of either or even sympathizers, to prepare on American soil to as sist their native or adopted land. We prosecated the Cuban filibusters; we would not think of permitting Russians or Japanese now to carry on a propaganda here, let alone to drill and equip armies. The Chinese are doing more than this every day. Ample evidence Is furnished of these facts In the columns of The Herald. Names, places, photographs and all necessary data are given. It is the duty of the authorities to get busy, without delay, to stop these out rages and to bring to Justice these knowing violators of the laws of the country and of the state. The fair Missouri girl who came here, "all the way from Pike," to wed knew what she was about. She expects her honeymoon to be a foretaste of heaven, and therefore wants to spend it in heaven's prototype. THE VALUE OF THE MITE One of the secrets — doubtless the cardinal one — of the great financial success of John D. Rockefeller is his knowledge of the accumulative value of the infinitesimal. He knows the worth of the mite and its power to grow into a stupendous aggregate. He early saw that the waste in the handling and re fining of petroleum was a vast fortune in itself. Grad ually he secured control not only of the refining, but of all the manufacturing of the by-products, and he saved enough on each one to add millions to his Income. Now the final minimum of refuse from the crude petroleum contains absolutely nothing of which human intelligence can create a value. The very bungs in the barrels where in oil is shipped are so constructed and of such cheap material that they prevent the waste of a drop of oil, though at the lowest possible cost. Andrew Carnegie has declared that the fraction of a cent per hundred weight in the price of coal or iron in a steel mill may represent the difference between profit and bankruptcy. It is a truism in every manufac tory that the welfare of the business depends upon skill in checking or preventing minute wastes. Rockefeller and Carnegie are the world's most suc cessful money makers. They have accumulated their riches through their ability to utilize the mites, which the vast majority waste. It is the sixty minutes which make the hour, and if only five of them are wasted one-twelfth of the hour is gone. It is the 100 cents that make up the dollar, and If only five are thrown away the dollar is one-twentieth short. Time and money are saved by all who do save In small quantities. The man who puts by that-one twentieth of the dollar soon has the start for a fortune. The man who improves that one-twelfth of an hour has riches of time to his credit Both Rockefeller and Carnegie started life as poor men. They realized the value of the mite and its ac cumulative power. Neither idled; neither wasted. That is all there is to it. Take advantage of the odd minutes, the odd cents; watch for the by-products and do not let either time or money go to waste. This is the day of "big" things. Men count by dollars and by hours. But each hour has sixty minutes; with one gone it is incomplete. Each dollar has 100 cents and it Is no dollar without every one of them. Never mind the "big" things; watch the cents and the min utes and the rest will take care of itself. If the example of St. Louis in municipal street light ing be trustworthy, Los Angeles would save money by following it. St. Louis paid a monopoly 13 cents a kilowatt hour for light that It now makes for 2.06 cents. And it now has better light, at that. A REVOLUTION IN AGRICULTURE? When an attache of the agricultural department ex pressed the belief two years ago that grain crops might easily be doubled In their yield the farmers laughed at him. When he demonstrated his theory later by growing two bushels of corn in lowa where the farmers had grown only one bushel before the amusement of the farmers was turned to amazement. Now the whole middle west is stirred by astonishing results of what is called the "Campbell system of soil culture." No adequate description of this wonderful system of agriculture has yet come under the observation of The Herald. It seems so marvelous, notwithstanding the results reported, that unquestionable evidence in sup port of the claims will be necessary to carry convic tion. A detailed description of the method adopted In the Campbell system, together with facts and figures bearing on practical results of its application, is prom ised at an early dajv It will be time enough to form a mature opinion when all the testimony has been sub mitted. An investigator of recognized repute says of the new system: "I saw the results of the work in eastern Colorado and western Kansas. The farmers using the system are raising from thirty to forty bushels of wheat to the acre, while those using the irrigation syg. tern are glad to get twelve to fifteen bushels." He expresses the fullest confidence that the system "will solve the problem of the semi-arid regions of the west and will make them the garden spots of America." It seems that "the system can be put into use by any intelligent farmer; there is nothing difficult or rnysterl mm about It" Hence the sanguine forecast that "it raises farming from an uncertain hand-to-mouth exist ence to an investment as solid as a government bond proposition." In these days of marvelous discoveries it Is hardly safe to laugh at the promise of any proposition, no matter how far astray it may be from the line of rec ognized knowledge. Agriculture on the broader lines, such as grain farming, has made little progress in com parison with scientific advancement in other fields. Farming equipment has been revolutionized In the last half century, but no substantial gain has been made in the product of such standard crops as corn and wheat. If this Campbell system of soil treatment justifies only in part the claims made for it, which seem to be well authenticated, It should be adaptable to conditions in Southern California. Further developments concern ing it will be awaited, therefore, -with keea interest, . .., Angelcm* Abroad By the Chatterer Mr. and Mrs. A. E.

MILLSPAUGH NORMAL GRADUATES HEAR BACCALAUREATE SERMON President Mlllspaugh Dwells Upon the Life of Christ as »n Insplr. atlon of Youth President J. F. Mlllspaugh of the state normal school delivered the bac calaureate address to its graduating class of sixty-seven members yesterday morning at the First Congregational church. No unusual features marked the oc casion, but the sermon carried with it a deep significance. President Mlllspaugh took as his text the sixteenth chapter and twenty-fifth verse of Matthew: "For whosoever will cave his life shall lose it, and whoso ever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it." He said in part: "Of the real meaning of the great teacher's words when he exhorted his hearers to lose life that they might attain it we need not remain in doubt or uncertainty. Not only was he the teacher of the higher life, but he was also Its interpreter and example. "Nowhere In word or in action is there indication that he despised the gift of life; never did he mistreat It or seek to throw It away. He used it. It was to him an instrument of service. "He came 'nof to be ministered to, but to minister.' Whether employing his intellectual and spiritual insight to Interpret truth to men or in the sweat of his brow at the carpenter's bench, contributing to social comfort and thus forever putting the seal of dignity upon honest toil, or healing the sick and sympathizing with sorrow, or, finally, giving up life itself for the race—al ways, everywhere, the Master's life was a life of service. "Thus did he Interpret and exemplify his own teachings, thus did he lose his life, thus did he find it. "It is in service then that true life Is to be realized. This is the philosophy of selfhood. Here we have" the touch stone which determined the value of the present life— its capacity for ser vice. 'The seeker for his own life shall lose it.' But he who daily spends his life in service, who loses it in helpful effort, who invests it for Christ and humanity, he makes it the ladder by which he may rise to the ideal. 'The loser of his life shall find it.' ■' > ' t . " "To you, my young friends' of th* graduating class, this declaration of the great teacher comes with especial persuasiveness. You are today stand- Ing on the threshold of a career which Is preeminently one of service, a career In which multitudes of devoted men and women have realized the grandeur and glory of noblest selfhood. . . ,/- y "That you are animated in some good degre by a sense of the. dignity of its transforming power I have every rea son to believe. That you may carry away from the Institution which you are soon to leave — from its laboratories, its library, its class rooms— something more than the knowledge you have ac quired, something more than the skill you have attained, something more even than the enthusiasm for investigation and study, which many of you have gained ; that, more than all ' else and better than .all these, you may 'bear away with you a lofty and unselfish i purpose to use all that you have gained In loyal service for Christ and human ity, and thus may bring to fruition the noblest elements of your nature, this Is the hope and expectation of your alma mater."

Btowell, the Los Angeles millionaire, who, following a decree of divorce from Flora Rives Kin well, mar ried Miss Evelyn Wilkinson of Chicago in that city last Tuesday, Is 'at the Van Nuys with his 22-year-old Wife. Mr. and Mrs. Stowell arrived In Los Angeles late Saturday night over the Southern Pacific, and following a week or ten days here, while Mr. Stowell is occupied with business affairs', the couple will continue their journey to the north, with Portland and the ex position as their goal. The divorce which gave separation to Stowell and his first wife was grant ed In the Texas courts last April. The published report that at. that time, and only a month after selling the Stowell block on Spring street for $400,000, he swore the valuation of the community property to be $12,000 met with an em phatic refutation on Stowell's part last night. ■•':-:,:; "In the first place the settlement of such a question could not be taken up by the Texas courts, but must be left to those of the state of California," he said. "And, agatn, as some valua tion has to be placed upon the prop erty, I swore that the community in terest amounted to more than $12,000. How much more is something that con cerns only the parties interested.' "The settlement with my wife was something like $150,000. Anything farther than this I do not care to dis cuss. The statements which have been made in the newspapers have been so utterly false, so entirely lacking -in truth, that they will not deceive any one 'who knows either Mrs. Flora Rives Stowell or myself." "Are you going 1 to housekeeping here, Mr. Stowell, following youri honey moon?" he was asked. "Oh, no," he replied, "you know I' am now living in El Paso." Her Auction Piano "That's an auction piano your daugh- ter's got, Isn't it?" asked the sarcastic woman next door.' "No, indeed!" replied the proud mother Indignantly. "What made you think that?" "Oh, probably because it's going;\go« ing, going, all the time."— Philadelphia Ledger. ' . .
