QUESTION WORTH PONDERING
In yesterday's Horald th« facts w«r«
related concerning a typical but ag
gravated ca«6 of grip— th« kind tha
brewers hold on the retail liquor traffl<S
of thin city. These facts should be tm
pre«ned deeply upon the conscience of
the community nnd they also should be
considered In their business aspect.
They show that the saloons are ope
rated largely In the Interest of brewery
corporations, the enloon men being
usually the main representatives of the
brewers. And they show how absurd
It Is for Los Angeles to tolerate pro
prietary control of saloon licenses,
from which vast revenues are derived,
when the city should havo the full
measure of benefit therefrom.
In the particular case to which ref
erence now Is made, the corporation
owning the license Is a San Francisco
concern. In an attempt to secure a
transfer of license the fact was revealed
that the brewery corporation valued
the license at about $8000, although
the stock and fixtures of the saloon
were worth only $450.
Now that lioense, and the 199 other
retail liquor licenses operative lv this
city, have no tangible value whatever.
They simply represent 'a privilege
granted by the city, for a monthly con
sideration to sell liquors under certain
conditions. The brewery corporations
are large capitalists, and like their
kind in other business activities, they
have the means of controlling the
licenses. Just as if they were tangible
property. And, with tho 200 saloon
limitation in the city, these licenses
have increased In value immensely,
In conformity with the law of supply
But It Is outrageous that 'a few rich
corporations, not.aJl even t-resldenit- In,,
Los Angeles, should gain such Immense
revenues from the liquor traffic,
through the medium of city licenses. It
Is Into the coffers of these corporations,
pot into the till of the average saloon
keeper, that the lion's share of liquor
Beijing' profit goes In Los Angeles.
As the city has the fundamental
right to control this line of business,
why should the enormous profit derived
from It be poured Into the already
plethoric pockets of the brewery mag
nates? Why not introduce such a sane
system as the Gothenburg- plan offers,
whereby the evils, of the liquor traffic
may be reduced to the minimum, the
number of saloons decreased to one
third the present figure, :ind the legit
imate profits of the business be turned
Into the city, treasury?
THE. HARBOR PERIL
The discussion of the Wilmington
harbor question before the board of su
pervisors gave assurance of one thing,
and one only. It made the fact plainly
evident that the Inner harbor proposi
tion Is in danger of being "hung up"
Indefinitely by litigation. The attor
neys representing the three corpora
tions Involved in the issue made it
plain that their side would fight to the
lutit ditch if necessary to maintain the
points for which they contend. There
are questions of fact, of state law and
nf <ro : n»titutlonnllty that' are knotty
enough to require many years of legal
It Is a rather discouraging harbor
outlook that Is presented by this tangle
over the status of Wilmington. As
iuimtng that the people and their rep
resentatives are quite as determined
ub the rorporntlons to fight for their
right*, a long and costly litigation Is
Imminent. That would give an op
portunity to oonjjxePHlonal opponents of
the San Pedro harbor Improvement to
oppose further appropriations for the
government work, with a good prospect
I for success.
Two of the three corporations thus
aligned In the Wilmington tight, are
substantially Los Angeles concerns.
The Banning company and the Salt
I-nke Hallway company have been in
timately connected with Los Apgcles
I city and county from the earliest period
of their corporate existence. And thu
third corporation; the Southern Pacific,
Is a large financial ami Industrial factor
In the development of this city and
As all Interests concerned at the har
bor would be benefited by the earliest
1-ossltile completion of the harbor
worU, it would seem to be the part of
wisdom for all to pull togc-ther with
that end in view, rather than to balk
and kick over the traces. The que.S;
tlon of right and Juytice in the Is«uc«
Involved should ha solvable without
reporting to litigation. "There la n
way thut seotneth right unto a man,"
and a corporation or a community is
only an aggregation of Individuals.
The temper. shown at the meeting of
the board of supervisors indicates that
tht- situation In the Wilmington affqlr
is acute and thut the peril of long and
obstructive litigation Is Imminent. The
Herald's slogan for Loa Angeles— "pull
tpKefhsr"-rßhPuld be eouiided In clarion
notes down at the harbor.
PRESIDENT'S CANAL VIEWS
The only, disappointment In the presi
dent's message relates to the public ex
pectation that It would contain a.
strong Indorsement of the lock sys
tem for the Panama canal. Aqsuranc*
on that point, however, seems to be
only deferred for a brief time.
After noting the fact thut "there are
n.o physical obstacles on the route thai
American engineering "kill will not be
able to overcome without serious tllfll.
culty," the president says: "On this
point I hope to lay before the congress
at an early day tlm findings of the ad
visory board of American and Euro
pean engineers thaf ut my Invitation

gether with thp report oV tht» i-oiuuil.-t

on or nvum;t»':ini;ftlonsi in reference
thereto as may iteem neoeissary."

mount to a direct committal to that
lystem. He Bays: "The American peo
ple are pledged to the speediest pos
sible construction of a canal Adequate
to meet the demands which the com
merce of the world will make upon it,
and I appeal most earnestly to congress
to aid In the fulfillment of the pledge."
As engineers generally agree that ft
sea-level canal will require ten or
twelve years longer for construction
than would one with the lock system,
the Utter certainly nils the require
ment of "speediest construction."
The purpose of the president In re
serving for a special message his con
sideration of the canal question Is obvi
ous. He evidently means to treat the
subject In the exhaustive manner shown

A method of massaging the scalp for

maneuver is extremely restful, but I
should never advise lv application in
any case but that of young people.
