THE HERALD IN SAN FRANCISCO AND OAKLAND— Los Angeles and Southern California visitors to Ban Francisco and Oakland will find Tho Horald on sale at the news it anal in th« San Francisco ferry building and on the streets In Oakland by Wheatley and by Amos News Co. Population of Los Angeles, 251.463 Good morning; did you get wet? This wet water is very welcome. Now watch the oranges turn to gold, J. Pluvius also drops In on Los An geles. The thirßty earth now takes a long drink. Fiddler Schmitz will soon face the music. The two Walters; you take one ar.3 you get the other. This rain may last several days; thn longer, the better. Many a temperance man was "soaked" yesterday. Ascot seems to ha¥e got "one on" the slow city fathers. Whittier Is stiff and cold as an icicle over Its little hail storm. Boss Parker stands for Doc Lind ley, but will Los Angeles? Caruso appears to be singing small In the Yorkvllle police court. As between Boreas and Jupiter Plu vius, we prefer Jup., any day. You can't take one Walter without the other Walter. Reject both. The man who got soused yesterday was not necessarily blamable for it. Only a sick town needs a doctor at its head. And Los Angeles Isn't sick — yet. Los Angeles' sunshine will take a. few days' vacation while the foliage gets a chance. "Faust" is a fine opera, but to run it until after midnight is almost Me phistophelian. Thirteen persons were drowned in a steamship collision yesterday. The un lucky number again. The very fact that Doc Lindley suits Parker should make him unsuited for mayor of Los Angeles. Snow on the mountains yesterday de lighted Angelenos. It is one of the signs of spring rains in the valleys. Mr. Gates says his boss is the whole of Los Angeles. Doc Lindley says he's satisfied with Boss Parker. There you are. This municipal campaign is quite worth while; it has galvanized the Evening Way Freight into a semblance of life. Even that little shower of yesterday made some down town streets look like miniature rivers. Drainage is badly needed. Theodore Bell is invited to b< me D citizen of Long Heach. Ho already hag a .standing invitation to locate in Los Angeles. We've had one "Doc" in city politics, and he .should serve as a solemn warn ing against any more "Docs" in muni cipal affairs.

THE ONLY ISSUE Only a simple M- la> Involved In the local municipal campaign, and there Is nothing at stake to warrant such rancor aa has been stirred up by supporters of certain candidates. The Issue referred to cannot be more clearly or more tersely stated than In this declaration by President Roosevelt; "The worst evils thut affect our local government arise from and are the In evitable result of th« mixing up of city affairs with party politics of th» nation and state." , How aptly that statement fits the situation In Los Angeles! In recent years, as every Intelligent citizen knows, we have allowed politicians to "mix up city Affairs' with party poll ties" at election time, and then we have felt like kicking ourselves all the rest of the year for having done ho. With the exception of n tew weeks every two years— the weeks lust prr oeding the city election — I ho volns of Los Angeles have been wont, and for mighty good cause, to growl nnoul the results of political machine control of our local government. And throughout abOUl twenty-three months of thr twenty-four constituting the two years there have been raucous tin-cats to turn down the political machinists nt the first opportunity. It was With the object of affording an opportunity to rescue the local gov ernment of this city from machine con trol that the non-partisan movement whs organized. Certain prominent citi zens, with the requisite courage to fight the political trust, undertook the thankless task of organizing a non partisan movement, in accordance with President Roosevelt's idea. If the anti-machine feeling: among voters would hold out during the month before election as It does the rest of the months between elections the, ma chine would be burled under ballots deeper than was Pompeii by the ashes of Vesuvius. It was upon the supposition that vot ers would jump at the chance of "downing" the machine that the non partisan movement was organized for the present campaign. It was organ ized most auspiciously, too, with pledges of support from the most Influ ential men of the city. - But the wiles of the machine man agers, like those of the serpent in Eden, have succeeded in making trouble. Personal considerations and jealousies were allowed to outweigh the vital importance of pulling together for the public weal. And thus tfie ma chine managers partly accomplished their purpose by the tactics expressed In the military maxim, "Divide and conquer." But it remains with the voters to de cide whether the machine shall succeed in the main object of wrecking the non-partisan movement so completely that it will be hopeless to attempt the launching of another one. That Is the vital issue which the voters of this city will be called upon to decide Decem ber 4. All the dust that the partisans of the machine are kicking up is merely in tended to blind voters to the real issue Involved in the election. Voters, remember the foregoing words of President Roosevelt, which he followed with these: "The lines upon which national parties divide have no necessary connection with the business of a city. Such connections open the way to countless schemes of public plunder and civil corruption." Sever that corrupt connection by electing the non-partisan ticket. GOLD-MINING FACTS Many persons who are unfamliur with the gold deposits of California and Nevada have but little faith In the widespread revival of mining op erations in these states. The "boom ing" of new mining districts and the exploiting of new companies are quite commonly regarded as speculative, without any substantial baßis. This as sumption is backed with the argument that all the mining districts In the two states have been prospected for dozens Of years, and that if any rich diggings exist they would have been discovered long ago. In this view of the matter sight is lost of the primary consideration. It has been known for perhaps half a century that gold is widely distributed in the name localities where extensive mining operations have been projected Within the last two or three years. The salient point to be considered, however, Is the fact thut the gold deposits in question, so far as already tested, are generally what Is known us "low grade." That is. the gcii i is not found In sutticli at quantities to warrant mining opera tions except upon an extensive scale and with the most approved modern appliances. when the earlier proapeoton discov ered gold In the dlßtrictl referred to they founu plenty of "odor/ 1 but not "pay dill." The diggings were ii'/i rich enough to work profitably with the crude methods necessitated by luck of capital. Water is the paramount requisite in gold mining, und it costs a gTMt deal of money to supply it in the desert districts where the prOMQt mining operations aic conducted hi Nevada and California, But millions of dollars' . worth of gold have been taken, by modern ap pliances, from tailings and other refuse at California mines that were aban doned lon| MO; In these days of Im proved mining methods It is profitable to go over the sane ground that was "worked out " in the early days, and also 'to operate In deposits of very low grade. lt Is the introduction of large capital wherewith to work the low-grade de posits in California and Nevada that now Is causing the recrudescence of gold mining in these states. The days Of "bonanzas" see. a to have .passed, but there U untold wealth In the yel low metal, tight here hi Southern Call, fornla, that is sure to be brought In Hie mint in the near future by scientific and down-to-date mining methods. LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 23, 1906. NO COUNTY BONOS lndication* last night were that Los Angeles dly yesterday had voted "no" on. all the 'propositions to bond the cou*nty for $900,000 for vnrlqus public lmprovement*!. Returns from the county were very meager last night, but the Indications were that the coun ty had followed the city's lead In the voting. lt Is probable that the complete re turns will show that the whole prop osition has been turned down— not be cause It was not proper and right, but becavse of the Inopportune mo ment. As The Herald said: "There are many things right which RTS Inex pedient." • Now let us have no more bond prop ositions until the call for bonds for the Owens river valley water enterprise. Los Angeles would, no doubt, have promptly voted tho bonds desired by the supervisors had it not bfen tOT the knowledge that nothing must now be done which may militate against the Owens river bonds. PROBING THE WELSIiERS The Insurance, situation in Ban Fran* dsco is iikeiy to be thoroughly sifted l>y '.he federal bureau ot corpora tlons, which is a branch of the department of commerce and labor, By this means the whole American people win be m allied to understand Just what terms of settlement the insurance companies iaTc effected In Francisco. There are Intimations that tho terms are secret, in some cnses companies hav ing exacted promises that particulars should not be divulged. The federal government has no power to use compulsory methods in regard to welshing allegations, as that is a line of authority vested in the state. The right to investigate the methods of lln companies is conceded, however, under the general authority relating to cor porations engaged in interstate busi ness. The matter of Insurance is so import ant to the public, In all the states, that an exhaustive report of the dealings of companies with San Francisco pol icy holders will be eagerly awaited. All the facts should be disclosed con cerning the terms of setlement In the case of every company involved in the San Francisco disaster. Thus far it is only known publicly that the offer ings of such companies have ranged all the way from payment in full to flat repudiation. No company that has attempted the welshing trick in San Francisco should be trusted hereafter in any state. And in order that insurers may know ex actly how to deal with the companies there is need for just such an investi gation as is assured now. Los Angeles county went Republican two years ago by 20,000. Glllett carried it by a plurality of 7999. His vote was 20,935, while the vote for all other can didates was 26,798. If the machine is proud of that record — all right. Theodore Bell received 295S votes more is Los Angeles county than were cast for Alton B. Parker in 1904. This is something. ASCOT GETS SERVICES OF CITY'S VETERINARIAN SOME BOARD OF HEALTH MEM. BERS DEMUR AT FIRST Inspector Young Agrees to Devote Half Day to Municipal Labors and Accepts Cut in Salary for the Next Ninety Days Because Dr. S. S. Salisbury thought that the city would be going into part nership with Ascot park he voted no at last night's meeting of the health board on the proposition to grunt Dr. Lucian W. Young, city stock inspector, a half day off each day during the next ninety days. Ascot needs Ihp services of the city veterinarian and Is willing to pay a big price for them — far more than the city does. When Mayor McAleer handed around a letter mysteriously spme of the mem bers wanted to know what it was all about. "I presume all of the members of the board will understand," said the mayor. Then those who did not know asked &H explanation. Jt appears that the lee;; | >i; YoUllg gets all! fill' belOW what a competent veterinarian could make in general practice and, as the tnayor explained, it would help him to retrieve losses by doing this extra work at tiie race track. "Bui ii doesn't look well," insisted l)r. Salisbury. Dr. Qareeldn, acting health officer, said that Dr. Young had agreed to do all his city work before i i each day and "I agree to a cut of one-half In his pay while he served the track. The board Anally granted the request. THREE PERISH IN TEXAS BLIZZARD By Associated Press. 1:1. PASO, Texas. Nov.

BIG DECREASE SHOWN IN REPUBLICAN VOTE Final count of the votes cast at the November election for state and county offices is progressing rapidly at the county court house and it is expected the entire count will have been made and sealed before the close of the week. Yesterday the final figures for the candidates for gubernatorial honors and for lieutenant governor were registered with a few final counts of the votes on various amendments. The last election shows a great falling off of the plurality of Republican votes in Los Angeles county and city, and the com bined vote of Langdon and Bell here would have defeated Gillett by a good margin. The difference in Republican votes between that for the presi dential electors at the last election and for Gillett shows a decrease of about 10,000 votes. Porter exceeded Gillett as a vote gatherer in the county, while Toland of the Democratic ticket ran close with his party vote. Amendments 5 and 11 were carried, while amendment 12 lost. The count up to date: GOVERNOR City County Total Gillett 11,464 9.472 20,936 Bell 8,129 4,808 12,937 Lewis 1,732 1,315 3,047 Blanchard 969 1.483 2,452 Langdon 5,782 2,578 8,360 LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR City County Total Porter 11,882 9,712 21,594 Toland 7,616 4,262 11,878 Wheat 1,914 1,409 3,323 AMENDMENTS Yes No Amendment No. 5 11,218 6,572 Amendment No. 11 11.934 5,704 Amendment No. 12 6,762 1 1,345 Amendment No. 13. . .' 15,027 2,896 Amendment No. 14 12,841 4,510 Senate amendment No. 2 12,968 3,666 Senate amendment No. 14 6,648 10,198 Senate amendment No. 20 9,615 8,140 Senate amendment No. 38 14,588 2,960 Senate amendment No. 40 8,431 6,837 Assembly 2 Ex 9,281 6,094 Senate 2 Ex 8,183 6,528 COUNTY BONDS NOT FAVORED MAJORITY OF TWO-THIRDS IS LACKING Fear of Jeopardizing the Owens River Scheme Is Chief Reason Assigned for Opposition to Proposed Improvements Less than 10 per cent of the voters! of Los Angeles county went to the polls yesterday and decided negatively on the five propositions providing for a total bond issue of $900,000. Out of a total registration of ov_er 50,000 in the city, only about 5,000 votfs were cast. Meager returns from the county pre cincts indicate about the same vote compared with the registration. The five propositions voted upon and all of which required a two-thirds ma jority to be passed were as follows: Construction of hall of records aiul addition to court house grounds, $520, 0. New buildings at county hospital, $200,000. Improvements to county jail, $50,000. ('.rounds and buildings for juvenile detention home, $60,000. Improvements at county poor farm, $70,000. The hall of records and the detention home propositions came closer to car rying than did the others. The plun to Improve the county jail to the ex tent of $50,000 received only a bars majority, while the proposition to cx ptnd $200,000 at the county hospital was given only a slightly better vote. The proposition to expend $70,000 on im provements at the poor farm was third in favor. With four of the 13!) precincts in the city missing, the vote on the hall of records was 3,149 for to 1,708 against, or lucking 267 of the necessary two thirds. On the detention home proposition the vote was 3093 for to 1775 against, or lacking 457 of the two-thirds vote. The results on the other three prop ositions follow: New buildiiiKK at the county hospital, 2737 for, 2042 against. County juil improvements, 2434 for, 2304 against. Poor farm improvements, 2893 for, 1875 against. Belief is expressed at the county dork's office that the complete returns will not change the result as Indicated by the vote in the city and the few scattering returns from the country precincts. (In;. I disappointment was expressed at the court house last night over the failure of the proposition regarding the hall of records, To the rain yesterday was attributed the exceedingly light vote, and opposl liou lo any bond issue which in any manner mlglil affect the Owens rlvev project is given as the reason why the bonds failed to carry. The election cost the county between $15,000 and $20,000. CRIPPLED MAN PROVES A HERO Carries Wife Through Flames to a Place of Safety and Falls Exhausted Although a cripple and scarcely able to walk, Peter Devias.livlng at 317 South Main Btreet, proved himself a hero Wednesday night when he carried his wife to safety through smoke, flames and gas, although the effort caused him to put forth every ounce of strength lie possessed. The old couple occupy the lower part of the house In which they live. Late Wednesday night when they retired they forgot to turn out the gas In their room and a draft caused the flame to bcb be extinguished. The escaping gas soon filled the room and floated to the upper apartments. There a light was burning and the gaß exploded, filling the house with flames. The plosion awoke pevlas, who, understanding what had happened, gathered his wife In his arms and car* rled her to the sidewalk, where, he fell exhausted. Both were given prompt medical at tendance and will suffer no serious cousequences as a result of the ac cident* IMBPJMWMBMHrNriI'IIM ilfilll'l I ir*i l«l WHICH BRIDGE HAS PRECEDENCE? SEVENTH AND MACY STREET STRUCTURES NEEDED Trolley Interests and Property Owners Contend for Each First, as the Funds for Both Are Lacking I Which bridge first? is a live issue at the city hall just now. A battle is on between the adherents of the East Seventh street bridge and the Macy street bridge. The city must pick, as it lacks the funds to erect both structures at once Brooklyn Heights and Boyle Heights were well represented yesterday among the visitors before the board of public works and the city engineer's depart ment in which the problem of finance as well as construction is being thrashed out. The Los Angeles Railway company has bought lots for approaches and will pay half of the price for construction of the Macy street bridge over the Arroyo de Los Posos. This is the scene of the death dip accident where lives were lost when a car jumped the track. The Seventh street constituents have worried along for many months with a temporary structure built partly on the submersed foundations of the old bridge that was swept away. The city officials are inclined to build the Seventh street structure first as it will serve a large constituency who use this great east and west artery of travel. Its plans are now In the hands of the Pacific Electric company engineers, as it embodies features in trolley convey ance that interests them. It is proposed to make a reinforced concrete highway of three arches, thirty feet above the surface of the river and with foundations sunk thirty feet below the river bed. Doubtless there will be a struggle in the council as a resolution has al ready been passed asking the city en gineer to hurry the plans of the Sev enth street viaduct. SENTENCED FOR VAGRANCY Prisoner Said to Be Supported by the Earnings of Two Blind Beggars James Richey, who Is said to make a living off the earnings of two blind beggars, was sentenced to twenty-five days in jail by Police Judge Chambers yesterday on a charge of vagrancy.
