It is when the auto goes up against the festive trolley car that it comes to grief. A Washington mind reader predicts Shaw's election as president. Yes, it was in Shaw's mind. The rain was very welcome — oniy there wasn't enough of it. Come again, Mr. Weather Man. The board of health has begun a war on patent medi cines. Will it endeavor to win success by taking 'em?

Would the Sixth ward recall McAleer with Its pres ent misrepresents tivo still in the council? Fie, fie! "First cast out the beam in thine own eye." Mayor McAleer has been charged with "playing to the gallery." If so, ho must have missed out. An ele ment of the Sixth ward is now seeking his recall. Municipalities, like republics, are ungrateful, es pecially when they have such extraordinary power as the recall invests them with. Mayor McAleer Is now in the limelight of the Sixth ward.

It is a mistaken idea that the airship is not a useful thing, as shown by that escape of a local aeronaut from a policeman, as narrated in yesterday's Herald. What a future for elopements is suggested by that bird-lika evasion of the "cop"! The railway officials estimate that the colonist travel to Southern California this season is from one-third to one-half greater than it was last year. The regular tourist travel, which, is just beginning now, promises to be equally in excess of last year's record. The Voters' league wants a "referendum" on the new city hall proposition. What is the Voters' league and who comprise it? It seems handy for a llttlo group of agitators frequently to go through, the process of insect evolution — the grub, the chrysalis and the moth. BUSINESS AND THE WOMAN Mrs. Mary S. Holladay, the only woman railroad president In the United States, has gone back to so ciety. She has disposed of her traffic line, the Wil llamaburg, Greenville & St Louis, for a round million of dollars, and has announced that she has had enough; that business — at least, the railroad busi ness — is no place for a woman. "One cannot look after large affairs and attend to one's family," she declares. "Then, too, a business life sooner or later hardens a woman," she continues. Mrs. Holladay was a success aa a railroad president, so far as the business end of it Is concerned. So that failure had no part In her decision. Just how keen and enterprising — and also how feminine — she is, •will be seen by her further statement: "When I was a director of the road they would not give me an annual pass because I was a woman. I had to get myself elected president to get that pass." Of course, now the man in business will carp at this action of Mrs. Holladay, and say it was "Just like a •woman." So it waa. She felt that she was entitled to the perquisites that went with her directorship — few enough, In comparison with some, if an annual pass comprise them — and if she couldn't have them one way she took the thoroughly womanly alternative. Men -would have broken up the directorate, wrecked the road, put it through a receivership and milked it dry. She merely "got herself elected president." But that isn't the point; the thing to note is that Mrs. Holladay could not be a good president and a good home-keeper at the same time. The usual railroad presidency is popularly supposed to be a sinecure — the main duties to consist in riding about the country in a private car. How, if this be true, and if such light duties unfit one for home making, must the case be with those women in business who work for their liv ing and not merely as a fad? That there are many excellent home-keepers In busi ness goes without saying. That many women are in business as a fad and not from necessity Is equally true. Of the former' — those who work because they must — perhaps It is charitable to suppose that they make the best -homes possible, and that they would not be in business had they a free choice. Of the faddists, one must presume that success lies as to ■whether' they ..tire first, of trade or eociety. LOS ANGELES HERALD! MONDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 33, 1905. GRAFT AND THE HEART OF MAN Arthur M. Seymour, district attorney of Sacra mento, whoso record as a prosecutor of grafters and boodlers entitles him to speak, declared in the Herald yesterday that the cure for this grafting and boodllng, the greatest ill of the body politic, was not In the law. Instead, he said, it must all go to the man himself, and reform his inmost heart. Mr. Seymour is a lawyer — a good one. He knows the laws well. It is his business to endeavor to find in them a remedy for the troubles of the community. And when he declares that the law cannot cure, Is it fair to presume that the law is Inadequate, and needs revision? But further, Mr. Seymour says there are laws enough. It Isn't the law that is at fault, but the lack of heed for the legal requirements now existent— a sort of contempt for them, a feeling that It is "smart" to evade them, and a veiled approbation for the "clever" man who can steal and not be caught. That, he be lieves, is the root of the cvil — the laxity of the public conscience which permits these conditions to exist. And hence his call for a change of heart. The right and strength of these assertions are be yond controversy. History sustains Mr. Seymour ab solutely. From the first recorded age, men have had laws, both of their own making and given them di rectly by their God. In unmistakable terms they have declared: "Thou shalt not steal." And for stealing — and that's all graft is— not only are there divine pun ishments, but, what is vastly more to many men, hu manity has devised penalties as well. And yet grafting and boodllng were never more prominently mentioned in criminal annals than they are now. The remedy is with the Individual, and depends on his own heart. While man believes that he can steal, graft or boodle, and cheat the punishment by not being caught, the evil will exist. Not till it is realized that the great sin is in the doing Itself; that therein man commits evil not only against his fellow man, and society in the complex, but against himself and his God, will he be reformed. Not till the grafter and boodler Ss reprobated as r moral leper, an outcast and a wretch, will there be a betterment. In his own heart, truly, must a man reform — cease the worship of mammon and stand for character and real good. Then, and not till then, will these evils be abated— and all tho laws In the world will not do more than smother and abate the trouble meanwhile. The "greater" First National bank, with which have been combined recently the Los Angeles National an! the Southwestern National banks, opens its doors this morning, a fit financial power for the "greater" Lob Angeles now evolving itself from the elements here abouts. The city needed a great and powerful bank, and the heads of these institutions came to the front and provided one. Its success is assured. The Herald is glad to be the first to congratulate the community on its good fortune in possessing so stable, fine and splendid an institution. MASSACHUSETTS' MACEDONIAN CRY "It makes a heap o' difference whose ox is gored." This la an old saying, and a trite one, but it Is pe culiarly applicable just now to the political situation in Massachusetts, and through general terms, to that In the whole country. For, just as In the centuries past Massachusetts led the colonies In their fight for political liberty, she now seemingly is taking the fore front in a similar battle for industrial and commercial freedom. The Issue in Massachusetts right now Is tariff re vision. Strangely enough, the Republicans are making the fight for it Not that the Democrats are idle; they never have ceased to battle along this very line. But hitherto the Republicans have been rock-ribbed be lievers in the protective tariff; the higher, the better. Dingley, whose name adorns the present customs law, is from Maine, a one-time colony of the old Bay state, and Aldrlch, who, with Lodge, Massachusetts's own senator, led the upper house fight for the same odious law, Is from Rhode Island. Hence, the Dingley bill may be presumed to have embodied the quintessence of the desires of Massachusetts Republicans on tariff lines. But Massachusetts Republicans are now in rebellion against this very law. They have arisen In their might and have joined in a demand for a reduction, which has shaken the very foundations of the "stand patters'" citadel! They declare the existing sched ules are "exorbitant, unjust, iniquitous and damaging." They have no faith in thorn, and they join the Demo crats in a vigorous howl for a "tariff for revenue only." And well they may, for no part of the United States has suffered so greatly from that Infamous law than has New England, of which Massachusetts is the heart. Essentailly a manufacturing country, its poor soil and rigorous climate making agriculture precarious at best, its farms worn out and its shipping trade languishing, New England must depend on its factories for its life. Great and numerous are these, and staple are their products. One would surmise that If any region in the land would prosper under a high tariff, this would be it. But while the farming communities everywhere, whom the tariff ignores, are rolling In wealth, New England, and especially Massachusetts, suffers. The mills are closing, the looms are Idle, the factories stand in quietude, and the great power plants are cold and dead. The tariff, which upholds the price of the raw producets which are the food of these industries' capacious maws, makes their importation Impossible if the products are to be sold at a living profit. The Dingley wall stands like the great bulwark of China, shutting in New England and cutting It off from the rest of the world — the producing world. And so thou sands go hungry and sit in enforced idleness while this fetich of tho Republican party remains impregnable. The Macedonian cry has therefore gone out. The Republicans of Massachusetts see their own ox gored, and they send forth a despairing wall! "Come over and help us!" The most pronounced advocates of monu mental duties when they were supposedly profitable, they now find that the very Frankenstein they called forth is their Nemesis. Well may they shout and seek for relief in their dire need— for -relief there is none. The party turns them a deaf ear. Arrogant and stiff necked, supreme In its power, it scorns the plea of a small district, which it may well do with out. The Republicans of Massachusetts aro "up against it." Their party holds for them no hope. Only In the unswerving policy of the Democracy and Its war cry for a quarter of a century is there a sign of relief. The Herald Is informed by the California Promo tion committee of San Francisco that the firm which recently issued a circular reflecting upon Southern California has withdrawn the same and has issued a new one containing no such derogatory statements. The committee further assures The Herald that so far as its Influence prevails no statements reflecting on this part- of the State will be permitted. FORWOMEN Suits In Variety Perhaps there was never before so great a variety In tailored suits, for, aside from the use of decorations, there Is every possible latitude In the shape and cut of the coat, says a foreign let ter. It may be a fitted coat, with basques, pieces or the little dlrectoire jacket, which has rroved to be more generally becoming than was thought when first Introduced. There are count less examples of boleros from which to choose, some snug to the figure and others loose and falling off the shoul ders. A pretty feature of some of the boleros Is the extension of the front pieces, which cross slightly and fall over the belt. Household Accounts Fix a certain day for carefully going Into the domestic accounts and a cer tain day for their payment. It is easy to rectify an error which has happened during the past week, but memory is apt to fall after a longer period. A special drawer or pigeonhole should be kept for the weekly books and bills and the housekeeping account book. When You Buy a Hat It Is an old story that, while the American woman regards her hat only as being suitable to her face, the French woman Is even more particular about her profile and the appearance of the sides and back of her hat. For it Is very true that we cannot always stand face to face with the whole world, and the critics in thn rear are those whose remarks are most harsh. Remember this, then, in choosing a new hat. Take a handglerss and view the hat from all sides before selection. Little Change In Sleeves The moderately full sleeve continues to be accepted, and there are no indi cations of change in the sleeve outline. The long sleeve is set in reasonably full at the shoulder and either as sumes modified glgot lines or ordinary coat sleeve lines, or is draped or puffed above the elbow and worn with a close-fitting undersleeve, usually trans parent. The dressy afternoon sleeve ends nt th« elbow and save at the arm hole Is draped rather closely to the arm. Subdued Lights Few women will be subjected to an awful greenish glare, a purple hue or even pale blue rays this reason, for careful housekeepers realize the advan tage of having a soft shade of light to give a desirable tone to the sur roundings, as well as to make the most of their personal appearance, and for this reason delicate shades of yellow, pink and rose will be found ingeniously twisted around almost all the electric light bulbs in an apartment, particu larly in the dining room, where a glar ing or trying light frequently causes untold discomfort to the nerves of guests, besides making them look un real and often ghastly. Homemade Bath Bags Select cheese cloth about four Inches square and fill with the following mix ture: Two and a half pounds oatmeal, one-half pound of almond meal, one half pound of orris root (powdered) and one-quarter pound of castile soap, which has first been scraped to a fine powder. Not too much should be put into each bag. Caviar Sandwiches A good caviar sandwich is relished by many people. Here is a recipe: Sprinkle a little lemon juice and a few drops of onion juice over the caviar. Stir, and then stir into the creamed butter that is to be spread on the bread. When all slices are spread, fit two together, press firmly, then trim the edges, removing the crusts and leaving a clean edge all around the sandwich. They may then be cut in the shape of triangles, rounds or dia monds or in dainty narrow strips the length of one's finger. To keep the sandwiches fresh pile log cabin fashion on the plate. Wring a large napkin out of ice water, lay the plate on this, then bring the corners up over the top of the pile of sandwiches and set away In a cool place.

BIG STAKES PLAYED FOR IN NEW YORK INSIDE WORKINGS OF MAYOR' ALTY CANVASS Hearst's Aim to Gain Recognition and Make Trouble — Old Bosses Threat ened With Extinction by Younger Element Special to The Herald. NEW YORK, Oct. 22.— Anticipating the re-election of Mayor George B. McClellan, possibly by an Increased majority, as mayor of New York city next month, political leaders In New York state are giving him much promi nence In their calculations with re spect to national politics. Tammany Hall ■ politicians make no secret of their intention to force the nomination of McClellan for governor of New York state in 1906, and to establish Charles F. Murphy, the pres ent leader of that organization, as leader of the state Democracy, to fill the place long held by 'ex-Senator David B. Hill, and only relinquished by Mr. Hill to give precedence to Judge Alton B. Parker for the personal direc tion of his own presidential campaign. A curious situation Is thus developed in the Democratic party. McClellan's nomination for governor can only be achieved through the ascendancy of Mr. Murphy, and Mr. Murphy's as cendancy would mean the political downfall of Mr. Hill and the reduction to the ranks of Senator P. H. McCarren and Judge B. Cady Herrtck. These combined events would signalize a con quest of the New York state Democ racy resembling very much the con quest of 1898, when Richard Croker, then the leader of Tammany Hall, forced the nomination for governor of Augustus Van Wyck, brother of Robert A. Van Wyck, who was then the mayor of New York city. Metropolitan con trol of New York state politics has been rare, and always temporary. Two Reasons for It Two very good reasons exist why the conquest of the state Democracy now projected by Tammany may be made to last, if accomplished, until the next Democratic national convention. Mayor McClellan's election to the office of governor would, if accidents of his administration as governor do not create Insurmountable obstacles, render him the logical candidate of the state for the presidential nomination in 1903. and probably attract to his support many of the strongest conservative Democratic leaders of the east. His election as governor would inevitably extend the spoils system of Tammany hall to the state government, which, having new legal authority to expend $101,000,000 for the widening of the Erie canal, affords extraordinary oppor tunities for political organization along the lines of the patronage system. Looking forward to 1908, friends of Mayor McClellan anticipate that his candidacy for president may cure fac tionalism in the party, and become popular with the masses without alien ating the conservatives whose votfiß are necessary to carry doubtful north ern states. They confidently rely upon the development of party sentiment favorable to the nomination of a vig orous man who has not been identified with factional troubles which have rent the party asunder since 1896. Wherein McClellan is now stronger as a presidential possibility than he was last year, when abortive attempts were made by Tammany to swing the Cleveland strength for him, does not appear. His course as mayor has run smoothly. There have been no scandals of importance in his adminis tration, except those which attend the operation of Tammany contracting con cerns organized for graft under every Tammany administration. But if a Democratic convention for the nomina tion of governor were to be held today, there would doubtless be very active and perhaps successful opposition. Ac cidents of the present situation have, however, made McClellan's future look brighter than it did a year ago. No Organized Opposition City opposition to Tammany Hall has ceased to be an organized opposition since Mayor McClellan was inducted into office. There is a very widespread Jealousy among Tammany contractors and business men over the monopoly of city favors granted by the McClel lan administration to Mr. Murphy and a few of his closest friends, but the dis affected content themselves with growl ing, knowing that the present is not a good time to apply the only possible remedy, namely, the defeat of Tam many Hall. The Citizens' union, the organization which cast 150,000 Independent votes for Seth .Low in 1897 and which. In conjunc tion with the Republicans, elected him Mayor in 1901, Is moribund. The Repub licans have been unable to work out a successful fusion with other anti-Tam many bodies. McClellan 1b opposed therefore only by the straight Republi can organization, which cannot hope to cast more than one-third of the city's whole vote, and by W. R, Hearst, run ning independently as the candidate of the Municipal Ownership league. From the Republicans McClellan has little to fear. The only uncertainty which con fronts him in his candidacy is the Hearst movement. But little effort has been made by McClellan and his colleagues in the Tammany Democracy to neutralize the sentiment of the Democratic party fa vorable to municipal ownership. The Democratic platform contains Us usual declaration in favor of municipal own ership. The mayor qualified the plat form declaration of his party some what by saying In his speech accepting renomlnatlon: "As a Democrat I believe that that community is best governed which is least governed, and that where indi vidual effort and private enterprise has accomplished the same result as gov ernment, government has no right to Interfere. Where, however, public util ities conducted by private enterprise fall in giving the people adequate ser vice, then I believe it is the duty of the government to take control. The fran chise wealth of the city belongs to the people and . should never be parted with. Franchises should be granted only for limited periods, and on terms most advantageous to the pub lic." In the slow progress of the present campaign developments have resem bled the city campaign of 188 S. In that year Theodore Roosevelt was the Re publican candidate for mayor. Both wings of the city Democracy, the coun ty Democracy and Tammany Hall sup ported Abram S. Hewitt. Henry George ran on An independent ticket, attract ing support from the same elements to which the Hearst campaign is now ap pealing. Mr. Roosevelt received 60,000 votes, Mr. Hewitt received 90,000 and Mr. George 68,000.

Tammany realizes that its only seri ous problem of the campaign is to hoM the labor vote against Hearst and for McClellan. To accomplish this its ora tors will talk municipal ownership pure and simple in the effort to take the wind out of the Hearst sails. The Dem ocratic leaders are of the opinion that they will be able to hold the Hearst vote low enough to give McClellan a plurality approximating 76,000 votes, and possibly to give him the majority of all the votes cast. N. O. FANNING. Pi-Lines and Pick-Ups "Everybody Works but Father" "Everybody works but father," Is the new song of the day; The naughty sons all sing It as they're blowing In their pay. Daughters chant them the glad refrain as they liquidate their "dough," And even mothers will hum at it as < about their tasks they go. "Everybody works but father." Per haps the song is true; But then, I'd hate to be father, rather — now wouldn't you? The reason they work is plain enough — they do It with heart and vim; "Everybody works but father" — be cause they are working him! "Turn your thoughts to higher things," remarked John D. Then the price of oil went up, and everyone fol lowed his advice. Prunes — One dish I like always has hair In It. Plums— What Is It? Prunes — Rabbit stew! The principal motto displayed at a Qlencoe, Okla., wedding was: "Feed my Lambs." No; it has no such meaning; the wedding was in a church and the motto was a hold over. Peach — Will the auto displace the the horse? Pear — Yes, every time it hits one. Miss Pineapples — She said Bhe wouldn't wed the smartest man — Mr. Fig — She couldn't; I'm already married. The life insurance companies use as a. motto: "Do something for the fam ily." And how some of 'em do live up to It— McCall, McCurdy, et al. Divorce Tyranny "In Kansas City divorces are granted on such a small pretext as the hus band's kissing the hired girl," says the Carthage, ■ Mo., Democrat.
