fered for want of heat and light. It
ls a difficult matter to exercise pa
tience under such circumstances, but
the enormous growth of Los Angeles
during the past year has thrown upon
the gas company, uh upon every other
public and municipal utility, such a
markedly unusual responsibility that
some consideration is only fair to those
whose business It is to serve the pub
lic. The lesson of the past few days
should nerve to arouse the gas com
pany to h iicttiT appreciation of the
tremendous demands which this city,
in the course of Its #>arv«loui develop
ment, Is making upon It* enterprise
and resources.
lf the Los Ana;p|f>!« city and county
elections hud occurred soon after the
lnfamous work of the Republican con
vention at Venice, local machine poll
tics would not only have been -mashed
but pulverised.
Not a voice was raised nor ft word
written In defense of the civic out
rage perpetrated by the machine poli
ticians .-it Venice. In fact, It hardly
would have been safe, directly after
th,it convention, for any one to attempt
a defense of Its record.
All classes of citizens, without politi
cal distinction, denounced the scanda
lous travesty on popular nominations,
excepting, of course, the managers and
bpneflclarle.» of the machine.
Tint the adept* In mnchino politic*
wore not BtHtllfSJH to the pecrnt rleitlns
of public Sentiment. They knew thnt
a storm Of popular Indignation, like B
toniatfO Of the middle went, 1^ leTfiblS
for ii time, but usunlly is of nhnrt
duration They know, too. lb.il II is
good policy In hide In tho cyclone cel
lar until the storm has passed.
The political machinist! wore quits
cent for a time after the Venice In-
I'liny. but when the storm of popular
Wrath began tcr subside they resumed
business at the Old Stand. And when
they saw that the storm had crystal
lized in n popular movement iii favor of
:;i>n-pnrtisnnsliip in local affairs, the in
stinct of political self-preservation ad
monished them to get busy.
When the non-partisan city nomina
tions wore made the strength of the
movement was evidenced by the sub
stantial backing of the head of the
ticket by SOOO names of Los Angeles
city voters. If the city election had oc
curred directly after that sho-.vlng, a
walkover for the whole non-partisnn
li.k.i would have resulted. But there
was ample opportunity nnd plenty of
time for the manipulators of machine
politic? to get in their work by familiar
Non-partisan success in the city elec
tion meant political ruin to the group*
of professional politicians of all shades
who depend upon the public crib for
sustenance. And ns all In this cate
gory saw tho primary necessity of
"downing" the non-partisan movement
at all hazards; a concerted attack
thereon was projected.
Tho question will be decided on Tues
day next whether Republican voters of
Los Angeles shall so soon forget their
just indignation caused by the outrage
at Venice. It will be for them to de
termine whether they shall again
meekly submit to being rounded up in
the political corral of the very men
who perpetrated that outrage.
And it will be for Democrats to de
cide whether they shall ndhere to the
expressed sentiment of the party in
favor of non-partisanship in local af
fairs or, instead, assist the Republican
machine indirectly by voting against
the non-partisan ticket.
But little time is left now for consid
eration of this subject. Every Voter
presumably knows what a continuance
of machine control in local matters will
mean. If the present opportunity for
machine riddance be neglected there
will be small encouragement to attempt
a repetition of it.
If the average voter is willing to have
present conditions continue, let him at
least have the post-election consistency
in case the machine wins to abstain
from "kicking" — except when he feels
impelled to seek a place of retirement
wherein to kick himself.
A report that comes from San Fran
cisco would be surprising if it emanated
from any other city or town on earth.
Jt in to the effect that the vast surplus
of the relief fund is to be used for pub
lic institutions that have no necessary
relationship whatever with the cause
for which that fund was contributed.
It seems that the contributions that
poured into San Francisco for the relief
of its sufferers were greatly In excess
of the requirement. "While the ma
terial supplies were received in such
quantities that they could not all be
utilized, the cash contributions piled
up similarly.
It now appears that there Is a sur
plush of cash in the hands of the relief
committee which foots up the stupen
dous figure of $4,000,000. Never was there
so generous a response to a city's cry
of distress as was witnessed in the
overwhelming contributions that poured
Into San FranclSCO from all parts of the
United States and from many countries
Now conies the report which, as be
fore remarked, would be surprising; if
It came from any other city. The
directors of the relief work find that
"the need of relief has passed except In
such cases as can be taken care pf by
the regular charity organizations." The
question arises, therefore, What shall be
done with the X 000.000 of surplus
money In the hands of the relief com
It would sei-m to bs an easy problem
fur any oilier city to solve. The solu
tion would be, send the surplus back to
Die generous donorß, making a pro rata
division based on the original contribu
tions. How could there rightfully be
any other honorable course? All the
relief money was contributed for a
purpoae, namely, for the needs
of sufferers from the fire and earth
iuake catastrophe. Any portion of the
fund nut needed for that purpose right
fully belongs to the donors. It cannot
be honorably diverted v> any other use.
But note the propositions, as reported
from San Francisco, for utilizing that
$4,000,000 of relief funds. One sugges
tion is "the establishing of a $3,000,000
hospital with a part of the fund." An
other is that "the entire fund be
turned over to the regular charity or-
Bunt.utlona." Various other sugges

to 11 wide range or enterprises, several
of them large establishments,
Several months af,-" the chamber of
commerce compiled statistics relating
to local manufacturing Industries,
showing these general results: The
number of such establishments In Los
Angeles at that time, big and little,
was 1660, With an annual output \ liuetf
Bt 646,000,000, Those figures weiM for
the year inn:,. The tremendous Increase
during tho preceding five years was
shown in tho statement that the man
ufacturing output In 1900 was valued
at $21,000,000.
In these comparative Figures, taken
in connection with the largo number
of new enterprises projected, we get
an idea nf the immense strides this
city Is making as a center for manu
facturing industries. As the increase
is more rapid now than it ever was
before, the figures justify tho conclu
sion that the volume of manufactures
has doubled, at least, within the last
four years.
A standard saying of eastern visit
ors, down to a recent period, is obso l
lete now. It was to the effect that
"Los Angeles Is unrivaled as a resi
dence city, but it never can be a great
commercial and manufacturing cen
ter." Only the first part of that dic
tum is appropriate now. While not
only holding its reputation as a resi
dence city, but constantly adding there
to, Los Angeles already has taken a
place among the more important com
mercial and manufacturing American
In view of such strides within tho
last five years, what may we reason
ably expect in the five years just
ahead? Such discerning captains of in
dustry as Senator Clark and Charles
M. Schwab predict that this city and
its port will be within a few years
one of the world's great industrial and
commercial centers. Tho present rapid
progress In that direction fully jus
tifies the prediction.
Weather Man Wollaber seems to be
predicting by contraries just now. But
if that will bring- rain, he's welcome
to do it.

The world is still wuiting for the man
of science who will formulate with pre
cision he periodic law of jokes. Yes
terday Sir Francis Burnard. lecturing
at Chester, said that "experience had
taught him ♦'"it the witticism supposed
to be original or the absurd situation
fondly imagined to be absolutely new
had, as a rule, already appeared in
Punch. A joke, he said, traveled rap
idly. After wandering over Kurope
and America the poor old joke, done
almost to death, was in some queer
disguise brought back to Mr. Punch,
who was expected to welcome his prop
erty as an entire novelty." The knight
gave his audience to understand that
there is a sort of a Joke Index in the
possession of the paper he edited with
so much success. "Mr. Punch had
only to refer to one of his own volumes
to find the joke in a state of perfect
preservation, like the fly in amber."
Any one who has ever had anything
to do with the editing of humorous
writing will cordially agree with Sir
Francis about the Immortality of all
the principal jokeß. Indeed, one of
the principal arguments for the posi
tion that humor is of the devil Is the
shameless effrontery with which people
will support the statement that the
joke they are purveying is 11 new one.
Again and again persons have sent to
this office accounts of humorous things
said to them, as they alleged, under
circumstances which insured the abso
lute novelty of the joke. A man will
declare that his own small son lately
said an elaborately funny thing. The
funny thing, on inspection, is found
to be the same that Hamilear told of
the infant Hannibal, and that has been
going ever since. — London News.

National Association of Audubon Societies Seeks Legislation to Preserve
Rare Species of Birds
WASHINGTON, Nov. 20.— A national
movement for legislation to prohibit the
use of blfVt plumage of any description
for millinery purposes, as tho only
means to prevent ( the extermination of
rare species of American birds, Is about
to be undertaken by the National As
sociation of Aubudon soclrtles.
Confirmation of tins statement hns
hppn given by the president .if that OT«
ganlaatton, William Du tenet at New
York city, \vlin has been In Washing
ton attending the congress oftne Amer
ican Ornithologists' union, In session
at the National museum, He showed
his personal enthusiasm for the pro
hibitive legislation referred to in ■
iii.n this nfternoon. Tie said:
"The necessity for legislation or till:?
sort Is readily apparent when one has
looked Into the existing conditions In
detail. The Atidtibon societies have

limit the use of bird feathers for milli
nery purposes 10 the plumage of garni
birds killed for food. We were willing
to come to such mi agreement with
those who were not In sympathy with
our own ideas, and to raise no objoe
tlion so long .is the spirit of this un
derstanding was lived up to. Yet we
found thai so many thousands of shore
birds are killed purely for their plum
age, nnd no use whatever made or their
bodies, that we now object to the kill
lngllng of any of these birds under any

whether the feathers are those of a
prohibited species or not. In View Of
this difficulty, it cannot be expected
that the layman will know, and it
would not be proper to saddle Ihe
whole responsibility upon him. The
only way. after having Investigated .ill
the possibilities of the situation is to
Urge the adoption of restrictive legis
lation which will prohibit tho use of
plumage SO effectively that there will
be "no chance for any divided respon
Resources of the Association
Asked as to the powers and resources
which the National Association of
Audubon Societies is able to employ
for the protection of bird life in Amer
ica, Mr. Dutcher said the work de
pends in the main upon the thousands
of paying subscribers who contribute
$"> a year at the minimum as member
ship tlues. Many members subscribe
larger sums In various amounts up to
$750, which is tho annual evidence of
one member's abiding interest In bird
protection. The fiscal year begins on
October 20, and the annual income
now reaches $25i,000. The principal is
invested In high-Class securities and
only the interest expended in the prose
cution of the current work. Large
bequests to the fociety have been re
ceived from time to time, one of $331,
00 left to tne national association last
August by the will of Albert Willcox
of New York city. In the expenditure
of its annual income the association
strives primarily to obtain the strict
maintenance and gradual expansion
of the game warden system, especially
along the sea coast and at the breed
ing grounds of birds irf the interior of
the country.
Systematic efforts are made to keep
track of the bird laws in every state,
and to improve these laws by keeping
in touch with local game officials
everywhere, and by watching every
legislature from tho first day of each
session to the last. One especial aim al
ways in view is to obtain legislation to
shorten the open seasons and to pro
hibit the shooting of all kinds of game
in the spring of the year. The latter
plan [a advocated mainly to prevent
the shooting of migratory birds after
they have spread their wings for
northern (light at the breaking up of
the severe winter weather. Bird lov
ers know that these migratory birds
are invariably muted before turning
their heads northward, so that if one
of a pair is shot by some heedless, so
called sportsman, the remaining ono
of the pair is left alone with little
chance of finding another mate. Some
birds, it 1h known, mate for life, and
in such cases the shooting of either of
them when they are setting out to

Work Among Children
To stimulate public Interest In bird
protection and to make more generally
known such facts as these, the ■ na
tional association has been carrying
oil a systematic educational movement
among the children of the country, to
bring them t.i an appreciation of the
esthetic side as well as the patriot^
mi. of preventing the extermination
of rarr> American species. Leaflets
have been Issued in large oditidhs, de
scribing the birds of this country, with
colored plates, and an outline of the
bird which the children can color in
crayon from observation, or with the
teacher's Instruction, To strengthen
the Impression In the child's mind,
colored plates showing the types
found in thai locality are provided,
so that an acquaintance with the ex
act type will Insure the child's recog
nizing the various species of birds on
sight. Full confidence Is felt that as
soon ns the Juvenile mind, unhampered
by commercial considerations, learns
something of the life history of Amer
ican birds, there will no longer be
room for the development of any ten
dency to harm them willfully. "if we
can teach the coming generation the
facts of the life history and value of
American birds," commented Mr.
DutChl r, "we will give them a tnste
for the proper protection of birds and
the enforcement of ail laws with this
object in view."
Shore birds especially are In nerd of
greater protection, in the opinion of
Mr. Dlltcher, There are eleven species
Of small shore birds, snnie of I hem
not larger than spnrrows, but. 1111
fortunately, some belong to tho game,
bird class, Borne <>f these, known as
"Lhnic olnc," should be removed from
this (lass to that of non-game birds,
experta believe, if extermination is to
be previ nted. The ornithologists in
session here now have pasted a reso
lution looking to this end, ami have
r Himieiuicd such a law to the legis
latures of all North America. Of the
necessity for such action, Mr. Dutcher
Threatened with Extermination
"In North Carolina, in a single spring
season. 40,000 of these small shore birds
were killed and some species are dan
gerously near extermination. Were
the elimination of :i single sepcles the
only harm done it would be bad
enough. But the resultant evils are
even worse nnd more far-reaching.
For Instance, the killdeer, which is shot
ostensibly as n. game bird, is of in
estimable value to cotton growers, as
it kills the boll weevil, n pest which
has done untold damage to succeeding
crops and to exterminate which the
government is spending thousands of
dollars. Yet people in ignorance, or
for the sake of sport, as they view it,
have been destroying the killdeer. Tho
bird is too small to have any great
food value, so that Its indiscriminate
slaughter lias been principally for mil
linery purposes. We have found in
stances where the bodies have been
thrown away nnd only the plumage
taken, so that this disposes of any con
tention that the killdeer is shot as a
game bird. As it lives in plowed
fields principally and gets all its food
from the ground it is a valuable aid
to the farmer and cotton grower and
should be protected for the manifold
reasons mentioned.
"The wood duck is another species
which is in danger of extermination,
and to prevent such a misfortune the
Audubon societies are advocating a
closed season for ten years, in order
to enable it to recuperate its wasted
ranks. The wood duck is the most
beautiful of all North American ducks
and its plumage is its death warrant.
Its protection should be enjoined upon
the legislatures of all the states where
It exists."
Aigrettes Condemned
The movement to stop the use of
aigrettes, to which President and Mrs.
Roosevelt have given their support, is
now one of the principal aims of Au
dubon members. Concerning this prop
aganda Mr. Dutcher said:
"We are trying to stop the use of
aigrettes by working along two lines
first, by moral suasion, and, when that
fails, by harassing the milliners. I do
not fare if you use that word. Km
phatic speech and action are needed.
The small white heron Is the bird which
provides aigrettes. It is found along
the southern Atlantic and gulf coast,
down into South America. Milliners
claim that all the plumes they sell are

does not prove that bird protection in
America has enlisted every one's In
terest. it shows rather that the great
bulk of bird plumage now used is Im
ported from other parts of the world
because American birds of that type
have been cleaned out so thoroughly
in this country."
Bird Reservations
Ar* every state hn* its own RnmP
laws and as thpse meet more effectually
fill Incnl conditions It is thr aim of
.Audubon societies to iirgp tho ennet
m< nt of additional legislation upon th*
State legislatures rather than upon
congress. This plan usually takes the
form of applying for tho sotting iisldo
nf reservations where, game birds mny
be properly protected. Thorp Hre now
In eXISt UCh Places, several
of which an const reservations. in
Florida and Louisiana, while there is
one in North Dakota and two in Mich
igan. The only federal legislation
which the society Sought WM grunted
by congreßn last year In the passage
of a law prohibiting trespass on these
reservations, or the killing of any birds
therein. What amounts practically to
the creation of another local reserva
tion was obtained by the passage of
another federal law last winter prohib
iting hunting tn the District of Co
lumbia. In addition tn thoso legal ro-
Ftrletlons, Audubon members are al
ways active advocates of forest reser

Dispatches received at Queenstovvn
from British Columbia contain partic
ulars of the finding of a lifebuoy at
HerlOt bay, belonging to H. M.'s sloop
Condor, which was lost, with her crew
of 140 officers and men, while on a
voyage from Esqulmalt harbor to
Honolulu, in December, 1901, and of
whose fate no definite intelligence was
ever received.
The finding of the lifebuoy after a
period of five years revives the snd
story of the lost sloop, which sailed
on her initial commission from Esqui

The Condor was subsequently sig
naled passing Cape Flattery anrl on
the same day the steamer Matteswan
also passed the cape, but neither ship
was ever seen again, and the supposi
tion at the time was that they foun
dered in one of the violent storms that
swept the Pacific coast a few days
Wreckage was picked up near Van
couver island, but it was never ascer
tained definitely whether it belonged
to the Condor. The lifebuoy found in
Herlot bay, which was discovered by
some sailors, has been identified as
beyond doubt belonging to the ill
fated vessel. — London Chronicle.
In the executive department in
Washington where the business of
the government is carried on, there is
no belief in the Osier theory, as -far as
the woman clerks are concerned. Sev
eral of the most valued ones working
for the secretary of state passed three
score and ten long ago. Mrs. Eliza
Gridley, mother of the man who com
manded the Olympla at the battle of
Manila, is almost 80, yet she holds? a
most responsible position In the gen
eral land office and knows more about
records and land law than any six
clerks in the department. Miss Mason,
who Is nearing the same age, is a
pillar of strength to seekers for in
formation ip the library of war rec
ords. She is the daughter of a former
minister to France. In the depart
ment of justice are women nearing
70, some of them wives and daughters
of former judges, who work faithfully
and intelligently and who are prized
more highly than the frivolous young
er women who compose the greater
working mass in the departments.—

The Way of the Reporter Is Hard
ltI It is funny what impediments people
make to newsgatherers. Recently a
stranger arrived in this city known
only to a limited number of people, and
when the reporter asked one of them
who he was the question was asked,
"How curious you people are?" and
no information was secured.
Another case is that of a young lady
going riding with a young gentleman,
being seen by hundreds of people in
his company and yet endeavoring to
not have It mentioned.
We might mention other cases where
we have attended social gatherings,
dug up the names of guests and then
after they were in type were requested
not to publish them.
ln a place like this, where news is
scarce, every Item counts, and to be
deprived of legitimate matter is very
annoying. The Times has always care
fully avoided the scandal element and
when items which we consider per
fectly Innocent are turned down we
get tired, very tired, for we can't very j
well give the news when the people
won't give it to us. — Sequachee (Term.)

— W. H. C.
can it be possible that appreciation
of individual achievement and acquisi
tion has been supplanted so quickly by
determination to enforce a distribu
tion of the results of the endeavors of
others? If so surely tho brink of so
cialism is not far distant, and the sub
jcci is ono which should engage the
earnest attention of serious niiiids.
Whether the plainly discernible 'ten
dency, fomented by demagogy and self
seeking, prove to bo temporary or last-
Ing there can be no doubt that we aro
face to face with a condition such as
confronted Germany twenty years ago,
and it is surely making headway today
even in conservative England. Unlike
the continental empire, we have no
autocracy with which to combat here
sies; but, unless the fathers and sons
of the republic even to tho present
generation have been grievously mis
taken, the spirit of patriotism ,1b not
dead and cannot be killed. The living
questions are whether It has been per
mitted to He dormant too long, and in
what way it can be aroused to the
necessity of recognizing and solving,
with wisdom and tolerance, the imme
diatu problems Involved in tho guld
1 a posterity to be counted by
hundreds of millions. (Uorge Harvey
