LO9 ANGELES* HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, AUGUST a. 1905.
*" A RIDICULOUS SPECTACLE
,Th# .wrangle concerning the eltr ; librarian ; patted
«om« tlffrA ago from the'ftmnslng to the ludicrous sUge.
Now It has assumed & serious aspect, to the extent that It
shakes confidence In. the good sense of thta community.
It must be difficult for the average observer abroad
to understand how It Is possible for ft level-headed peo
ple, as those of Ix>B Angeles are credited with being,
to reach the present stage of agitation over so compara
tively trivial a matter as a change In the Incumbent hold-
Ing the Job of city librarian. .
Why this mountainous agitation about a subject rela
tively no bigger than a mouse, to recall the familiar
fable? That question is particularly pertinent because
the city library, in Itself, is an Institution In which the
people of Log Angeles are especially proud. It Is because
of that pride that the whole community manifests so
great anxiety to see the library housed in a worthy
home of its own. *<' Vv ..'. ..' .V,
With such Interest In the institution all citizens de*
sire to see It managed with the greatest possible effi
ciency. To that end library directors are chosen in whose
judgment and capability .the people repose confidence.
To those directors is given the task of managing all
library affairs so that the best results may be obtained
for the public.
. A matter of fundamental Importance In such man
agement Is the securing of high capability in the office
of librarian. As is said In some other lines of activity,
"the best is none top good for Los Angeles." The public
library of this city should be maintained, as all citizens
will agree, upon the highest possible level known among
progressive institutions of Us kind.
The library directors 'would be derelict In. their duty
to the public if ■ they, failed to shape their control by
thi-t standard. In regard to the employes, from top to
bottom, they are supposed to have in mind the highest
degree of efficiency. The idea" of personal favoritism
in such responsibility is not tolerable for a moment. .
The library wrangle now involves the mayor, the
city council, the library directors, two claimants for. the
post. of librarian arid a host of friends backing each of
the claimants. What an absurd spectacle for Los An
geles to present to its thousands of admirers who watch
all phases of activity here I
Get to the end of the farce without giving people
abroad further cause to fear that Los Angeles is becom
ing either daft or crazy.
GENERAL DIVORCE LAW, PLAN
: At 'last a practical movement has been started with
the object of securing a uniform divorce law throughout
the "United States. The governors of Pennsylvania and
New Jersey have taken the initiative in this matter,
and an .effort will be made to secure the support of all
other American governors. .
It is proposed to assemble in Washington a congress
of delegates from the various states for the purpose of
drafting a universal American divorce law. • If the plan
succeeds the proposition will be submitted 'to the legis
lature of every state and territory in the Union.
It is needless to speak. of the desirabillty-of , such, a
uniform law in this country, as the subject has been
thrashed over until there Is nothing left to be said about
it. The wide disparity in divorce laws of the different
states and the frequent ; clashing thereof, however, are
of interest in view of the proposition here noted.;' •'.
In California a prerequisite in ' an action for divorce
is the plaintiff's residence of one year in the state.. 'The
statutory causes for divorce are adultery, impotency,
desertion one year; felony, habitual drunkenness; one
year,* cruelty, permanent insanity, formeY marriage^ ex
isting. The large number of divorces granted in^Los
Angeles sufficiently attests the.ease with, which a slip out
ofl'the •'matrimonial noose may be made legally in this
state. ..' '■ j':*; ■ . ' >,' '. '.'.'■ '■' '(' .. ' '
Brief residence is an important factor In divorce
actions brought by persons who go to a state for tha
express purpose of instituting divorce suits. There are
five states in which a residence of only six months is
necessary as 'a prerequisite to such action. They, are
Idaho, Nebraska, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas.
There Is only one state that has a single statutory
cause for divorce. It is New York and the cause is
adultery. A strange thing about a New York divorce is
that it lets only the winner in the action escape from the
matrimonial bonds. That is to say, the winner may re
marry, " but' the loser Is prohibited- from ■ doing so. In
practice such a decree, merely puts the matrimonially in
cllned'loser to the trouble of crossing the state line. to
appoint where the law is not so particular about small
"South Carolina has the distinction of being the only
etate in the Union which does not allow a divorce for
any cause whatever. It has no divorce law.
' FLOOD BELOW SEA LEVEL
For several weeks ' there have been almost dally re
ports of the Invasion of the Salton district by the Col
orado river. , During all. that time the Southern Pacific
Railway company | has. been .fighting to prevent the sub
mergence of Its tracks. Large corporate land ' Interests
have been endangered and Individual farmers have had
cause for alarm* ' •:: -'- :' '"'
* But the rise of water, in the great overflow has not
reached high water mark, and there is no apprehension
that the mark will be reached during the present inun
dation. . '■ •
, The Salton district Is one, of the few considerable
areas on the earth where agriculture Is carried on below
the ocean level. The lowest part of Salton basin Is 380
feet below the ocean surface. It is one of a series of
depressions extending' from the neck of the Gulf of Cali
fornia northward to Death valley. All of. that stretch
of desert was originally part of the gulf, as the salt de
posits and general formation indicate. ; ,
It Is only when the Colorado, river attains am un
usually high flood that'lt overflows • Into the Salton
basin. The annual flood occurs In June and July, caused
by. the melting of snow in the great chain of mountains
forming the Colorado watershed. The volume of water
that" pours down the river at thai time varies In differ
ent seasons. In 1903 . it exceeded 30,000 cubic feet per
second. \ • •
The Colorado river has been appropriately called the
Nile of American. Like the great African river, it rises
In the mountainous backbone of the - continent and
carries- toward its. mouth great quantities of rich : ferr
Ulizlng substances. This fertilizer is spread over a vast
district in the delta by the flood overflow, thug making
agricultural lands of amazing richness. k

for the last time.. The government -irrigation system in

Mrs. Rebecca Spring was next intro
duced, and Miss Anthony stood beside
her while she recalled some of the
changes that have taken place In wo
man's Boclal status within the span
of her ninety-four years of life. .
.Two men were on the afternoon
program. Francis Sylvester ' Monnett
of Kansas, famous in his own state for
his war on trusts, explained the legal
status of women In the Unltc'j States.
Mr. Monnett Is not a special advocate
of equal suffrage. He occupies neutral
ground. ] He said that woman suffrage
states might be divided into four
classes. The first are the taxpaylng
suffrage states— lowa, Louisiana, Mon
tana and New York. These- have, ex
tended to women the right' to vote on
bonded propositions for public improve
ments. Under the Becond head' he dis
cussed school 1 suffrage. -Seventeen
states ' have extended to women '. the
right to vote for school boards in mu
nicipalities.. Kentucky limits this
right to widows.' In Massachusetts," a
state/of great intelligence' among wo
men, he declared the women let some
of the school elections go by default.
Under the third general . subdivision
he pointed out that there was but one
state where Suffrage Is limited --to .mu
nicipalities. Since : 1887 the .'state of
Kansas has been dominated by statutes
giving women, the same authority to
vote, but repeated -efforts '.„ to,:. enlarge
the j limited right have". failed.:" Under
the" fourth: subdivision Mr. .Monnett
classified the states In which women
have full suffrage. In ; Idaho,; Utah,
Colorado j and Wyoming there exists a
"political phenomenon" that the speak
er declared to be "Inexplicable." ,
The Rev. Henry Frank of New York
smoothed feelings that -were ruffled by
Mr. Monnett's non-committal remarks,
and then the real enthusiasm- of the
symposium was awakened by Mlsb
Shaw. • ;. •' ' '
The Rev. Eliza Tupper. Wilkes intro
duced Miss Shaw, who devoted most of
her time to answering questions, and
she was ready with an answer to the
most skeptical of the skeptics.
"We women have been made fools of
long enough," she declared as soon as
she began speaking. "Women do not
think of men as their enemies. ■We
v- omen know that men do not wilfully
keep women in "subjection. It is. be
cause men are still under subjection
that our condition is as it is, and they
will never be free until the mothers
cf men are free.
"Many "people declare that It Is wo
men who are unjust ■ to the men, but
why are women not just to men? If
women are not capable of demanding
that men be Just to them, ; they are in
capable of -being just to men.
. *'There has been too much said about
ruling a man by fooling him. I once
heard a man say that the best way
for a woman to do tf she wants a
new bonnet Is to give her husband the
best dinner she can cook, dress her
self in her prettiest gown, and then
finally .tell him what a perfect love of a
bonnet she saw, down the street. The
husband will say, of course, 'get your
bonnet.' . .
"Let women be honest instead of
scheming. Let them. demand what is
their right. They can afford' to Bland
face to face with a -man on an equal
Moat of the questions sent to the
desk were the time honored ones about
what would become of the home and
the family If woman became ' a voter.
To all of these Miss Shaw -gave an-
Bwera made amusing with .her witty
stories and brilliant repartee.
"Men put on a dress whenever they
want to : " deliver a profound opinion,"
she announced with a smile as. she
paused In her explanation of the mean
ing of . the . word republic. "Judges
wears gowns and ministers preach in
gowns." . • : '■ ' " ■■ '
.Having pointed out, that- this country
had been under a monarchy : and then
under the hierarchy of church and sect,
Miss Shaw added:
I "And now ■ we're the meanest thing
of .'all—a ' trust of sex," • . ,
I Her opinion of. the dominant power
man — was given in closing her talk. .
' "The' average man ,is . a, . tolerably
decent human being," . she . admitted.
"He is growing; he ; is not grown yet.
He.is suffering from i growing pains. I
would rather have a. man suffer from
growing , pains that . one who is in
capable of growth.- ..' ; ... ; • • ;, . ,
. "The only hope for women must come
through _men. I want to r be free from

Rev. Anna B. Shaw, speaking on the
subject, "The New Man," held the at

crowded the auditorium at Venice last
night for two hours with her wonder

Miss Shaw declared that as there Is
a "new woman" so must . there be a
"new woman.' 1 ' .
. "The ' new woman," said . she, , "has

they were culled martyrs of higher

would have been fool enough to mak«

■"The new man will not have such
a hard time nt the hands of the, old
Woman as the new woman has had at
the hands of the old man."
Miss Shaw gave statistics, .which
she said, had been compiled by men,
to prove, that while the woman of to
day Is a much better woman physical
ly and mentally, than' the woman of
fifty years ago, her brother is 'not so
fine a man' either physically or men

he must be mentally developed If he
would be a mate for the new woman.
