Herald on sala at the news stands In the Palace nnd St.
Francis hotels, and for sale by Cooper & Co.. 841 Market;
lit News Co., B. P. Ferry, and on the streets by whsatley.
, The Herald's circulation In the city of Los Angeles
Is larger than that of the Examiner or the Express.
Population of Los Angeles 201,249
Th» "blind pig" Industry Is very active In the city
now, If we may judge from the squealing caused by vig
ilant police work.
The temporary board of trustees of the proposed Wo
men's college has sifted the proffered sites down to two,
both of which are near Pasadena.
The erratic Tom Lawson says he hns proxies enough
"to control the Mutual and the New York Life Insurance
companies." That Is the worst news yet.
No perron in Los Angeles Is more competent than
Frank Wiggins to make a forecast of the city's population.
He says that in 1912 it will be half v million.
Tho latest of its kind Is a barber shop trust, as re
ported in New York. It is a syndicate combination of
boss barbers, not nn arrangement for trusting customers.
A group of homeaeckers coming to Lob Angeles by

of that kind. All ronds for homescekors lead to Los
A seasonable zephyr Is reported from Chicago and
other lake points, with a gait ranging from fifty to sixty
five miles an hour. Even the wind at times is a speed
maniac. .
' Further encouragement for auto speed maniacs is
reported In the statement that several persons arrested
for the offense "paid nominal fines for speeding their
machines beyond the limit."
The steep hills of Los Angeleß may not be easy to
climb, but It is only a matter of dollars to open streets
through them. A Hill street tunnel from First to Temple
is practically ordered, as an example.
The Los Angeles county debt is the comparatively
trivial sum of $110,000, and the rate of the county's tax
ation Is said to be the lowest in the state. Make a note
of these facts, eastern investors.
It Is encouraging to hear that the police deny having
any good clew to the robbery of the Japanese bank. The
case looks more hopeful now. Clew talk usually Is a
bluff, like' fraud claims after an election.
It was only a scare, apparently, the report that turk
eys and other Thanksgiving specialties would be held at
sky-high prices this week. "Ample supplies to meet all
reasonable demands," say the market men.
According to report "a uniform system of game laws
to be operative in nil the states" Is urged in certain sec

game in which the "kitty" Is conspicuous.
Speeches and resolutions leveled at the pool-selling
and other gambling Iniquities at race courses are well
meant, but experience teaches that they are about us
effective as "the pope's bull against the comet."
The latest reports indicate that the cashier of the
United States assay office at Seattle got away with about
$300,000 in gold dURt. It consumes a good deal of the
golden stuff to sport a swell automobile and pose as a
king of clubs.
The city has closed Its option contracts on the larger
part of the Owens valley water territory. The people
of the valley will be made happy by tho receipt of $6«8.
760 on this account, which probably will allay any further
kicking symptoms.
It appears that the accident to Arthur Letts, In being
thrown from his horse, was caused by the terrific speed

can be expected when only nominal fines are imposed on
speed maniacs?
JSven Hearst's high-priced counsel acknowledge
stomach qualms and apologize for defending him. One
of them said in opening an argument in court: "Person

as it will bo to most of his counsel."
Tho state convention of California fruit growers will
be in session at Santa Rosa December 5-8. It will bo

particularly, will bo well represented.
The record of fifty-five speeches In fifty minutes, as
reported in the closing session of the Los Angeles Sunday
school association, Is not likely to be broken soon. The
mile-a-minute railway speed is common now, and a

In the police court on Friday an example that should
be salutary was set for a class of reprobates who are
entirely too numerous In Loa Angeles. The culprit In this
case was arrested in the morning at 10:50 for insulting
women. It wus just 11:15 when he wa B fined $60 and or
dered to skip the city Immediately.
The fire which destroyed the Harris & Frank clothing
house was the most disastrous, in pecuniary loss, that has
visited Los Angeles In several years. It taxed the fire
department to the utmost limit of Its resources and em
phasized the need of larger equipment for such emergen

California's record at the Portland exposition Is some
thing of which the state has good cause to feel proud.
Ab reported by Cornmlsaloner Wiggins, on hia home re
turn to Los Angeles, the state received for its exhibits
an aggregate of 267 gold medals. 140 of silver and eighty
of bron«. As a whole the state's display attracted far
more attention than that of any other state, the Call
fornia building being coutlnually crowded with admiring
visitors. Much of this success Is due to the admirable
management of the exhibit by the state commissioners,

It is substantially a recurrence of the old harbor fight
In which Los Angeles now Is Involved. The only essential
difference Is seen In the Increased strength of both con*
testants. During the dozen years or more of the old fight
a single corporation confronted the city; now there are
three Instead of one. But Lor Angeles In three times us
big and more than three times at strong now as In the
days when it n-ns struggling With the) Southern Pacific
railway company.
Whnt the prophetic ey« of Collls V. Huntlngton saw
n score of years ago Is now "as plain as a pikestaff' to
all observers. That sagacious old man of affairs fore*
raw tho time, as the far-sighted men of thti etty did,
when Los Angeles would have a great •world's harbor
down at the coast. And with the keen business percep
tion that alwnyn characterized htm, he laid his plans to
realize the lion's share of advantage that would accrue
from the coming harbor, Believing that with his Influence
he could command the location of the harbor at Santa
Monica, he enlarged his holdings at that point so that
he might control the harbor as absolutely as he controlled
his railway.
It was when that purpose of Mr. Huntlngton was
disclosed that the people of Los Angeles, led by men as
sngaclouß as he, aroused to the Importance of saving the
future harbor from the grasp of monopoly. Believing
that San Pedro offered far better natural ndvAntages
than Santa Monica for harbor purposes, organized effort
was begun nt once to Induce the government to select
San Pedro for the futuro free Los Angeles harbor. And
then began tho fight between this city and Mr. Huntlng
ton which lasted for many years, but which terminated In
a complete victory for the people of Los Angeles and
made f«un Pedro the great harbor of the future that now
we nil foresee.
Three big corporations— the Southern Paclflo railway
company, the Salt Lake railway company and the Ban
ning company — are attempting now to gain what Collls P.
Huntlngton so long and persistently fought for in vain.
San Pedro now Is a harbor of the present, but unfolding
and almost ready to take its place among the greater
harbors of the world. And with this glittering prospect
in sight, It In not strange that the three powerful cor
porations now pool their Issues In a desperate Attempt to
monopolize the free harbor which Los Angeles so stren
uously fought for and finally won years ngo.
But strong an these three corporations arc, they have
their match In tho determined attitude of the people of,
Los Angeleß, championed by the chamber of commerce.
In order to repeat the former victory in the harbor fight
it is only necessary that the people and their representa
tives pull together now as they did in the years gone by.
This admonition is timely because of the Intimation given
out by the corporate combine that It will control the Issue
relative to the Incorporation of Wilmington. That implies
a degree of influence involving the people's representatives
in the board of supervisors that is inconceivable. And
in this calculation, as In all others aiming to destroy the
plan of a free harbor, the combine is doomed to failure.
But the people and their representatives must remem
ber that "eternal vigilance Is the price" of a free harbor,
as well as of liberty.
It is not pleasing for citizens of Los Angeles to read
that "relations between the health board and the head
of the health department have been somewhat strained"
during a considerable period. Lack of efficiency Is one
thing, but personal antagonism In so Important a de
partment as the one which cares for the public health is
quite another thing.
The board of education has incurred sharp criticism
as a consequence of its recent decision to exact tuition
payment on account of the children of tourists who at
tend the public schools. Never until this time has any
discrimination been made in respect to non-residents. In
the high schools, which are provided for by the state,
no distinction is made on the basis of permanent residents,
and that example heretofore has been followed here in
the minor schools. The Innovation which now requires
the payment of from $2 to $3 a month as tuition, on ac
count of non-resident pupils, Is said to have caused many
indignant protests.
It is not probable, however, that such protests eman
ate from thoughtful and considerate sojourners In Los
Angeles. It must occur to any person who views the
question in a practical light that it is manifestly unfair
for Los Angeles taxpayers to pay the educational ex
penses, even if only for a few months, of the children of
non-residents who contribute nothing to tho official
revenue of the city.
It is a fallacious construction that tourists who make
complaint on this ground "object on the principle that
It places them In the class of aliens, while many of them
are regular residents of Los Angeles for blx months in
the year." To that plea the rejoinder is that If the com
plainant is a resident half the year he should be quite
willing to pay tuition charges as an offset to his escape
from taxation. Surely It Is unfair that Los Angeles tax
payers should pay for the schooling of children whost!
parentß pay school taxes only in remote localities.
Tho fact that touristß bring large sums of money to
Los Angeles is entirely irrelevant In respect to the point
under consideration. If tourists did not get the worth of
their money here, irrespective of the school question, they
would not be here.
It is stated, on behalf of the board of education, that
In the public schools of Los Angeles "there is an average
of 1500 or 2000 transient pupils." Certainly no class of
parents are more able than tourists to pay the moderate
charge now exacted for the tuition of their children, and
it is not probable thut, on reflection, any will object to
the new rule adopted by the board of education.
Another card 1b to be played In that game of Wilming
ton incorporation in connection mith the harbor fight at
San Pedro. The trustees of Long Beach have ordered a
special election to decide upon the annexation of certain
territory, part of which is the Wilmington water front
strip that the corporations claim to hava a "cinch" on.
If tlmt strip should be annexed to Long Beach the cor
porate schemes would fall, according to the judgment of
good authorities. This point will be decided, bo fur as
Long Beach is concerned, by an election to be held De
cember 23.
From Washington we have the announcement that
"Senator Frank Flint has arrived from Lob Angales, and
today called to pay his respects to Secretary Metcalf."
And further: "The senator spent most of the day clearing;
up a mass of correspondence at the capital." That ac
cords with The Herald's prediction that on hlB arrival at
Washington he would be likely to hear from many of his
constituents relative to his fence-striding attitude In the
railway rate question, as disclosed In Los Angeles Just
prior to his departure.
Hut The Herald notes with pleasure that the "mass
of correspondence" aforesaid seems to huve had an Ilium
inatlng effect on the senator's doubts whether he should
line up with the railway Interests or with the people who
sent him to Washington. In an interview he is reported
as saying: "I wunt to see a bill pussed that will protect
the commercial centers of California and alao the inter
ests of the fruit growers." If he sticks closely to that
text he will vote In favor of a measure calculated to give
California shippers v square deal In traffic charges.
Senator Flint Is right on the Punainu canal question.
He Bays. "I, in common with the whole Pacific coast,
think the canal should be built at the earliest possible
moment; our Interests demand this." That is equivalent
to a committal In favor of the lock system, us It is con
ceded that thereby the canal might be completed in seven
years, while it is likely to require twenty years fur its
completion 011 the bea level plan.

passengers at a time, nnd smoothly

playground will be a creche, where
mothers who have to go to work can
leave their children. That would be

The artistic "orangerle" at the Hotel
Astor, already so popular among wo

gayety In the evening, is to have an
added attraction which will soon be put
into effect. This innovation, which
will make the room unique among
other dining places, Is an arrangement
iii screened tables on the balconies.
There is room for a dozen of them,
screened from one another by a latticed
arbor, over which will bo trained a pro
fusion of wistaria vines in bloom.
These fragrant little dining bowers will

they make these gifts count. One of

The municipal ferryboat system, in
addition to erratic and unsatisfactory
service, is likely to prove a very costly

having larger boats the dock depth

clear idea as to the manner in which
