FEW SENATORS HAND IN THEIR RESIGNATIONS Senator Spooner Is an Exception Instances Are Recorded Where Men Elected to Congress Have Re. tired with Fortunes All but Gone Special Correspondence of Th« Herald. WASHINGTON, D. C, March 9.— The resignation of Senator Spooner of Wisconsin calls attention to how few men sever their connection with that body during their terms. It l.« nothing unusual for a senator to decline a re-election, but seldom do they retire ¦with any part of their term to their credit. There have been a number of such instances, however, in the past, prob ably more before the Civil war than since. This is partly explained that the position of a senator is growing more and more attractive from the standpoint of prestige and Influence. Its membership Increases very slowly, while the population of the country, Its wealth and business are Increasing by leaps and bounds. The two sen ators from Now York, for example, represent about as many people as the entire senate at Its organization. The resignations at the outbreak of the. Civil war were the most dramatic. Next In public Interest were those of Conkling and Platt. Since then only few senators have resigned, except to assume other political offices. Sher man, Blalne, Carlisle and others re signed to enter cabinets; Fairbanks re signed to become vice president. For mer Senator Clark of Montana once resigned, but as he was serving under an appointment, the legality of which was questioned, that scarcely counts. Why Burton Resigned Former Senator Burton of Kansas resigned, but he was under indictment. It is probable the late Senator Mitchell of Oregon would also have resigned, but leath claimed him first. ' Of all the motives by which senators have been actuated In resigning it is not now recalled that any save Spoon er have bluntly stated that they did so to increase their income. That resignations are not more frequent on this account speaks well for the mem bership of the senate, for many of them are poor men. Scarcely one could not increase his income were he inclined, either by re turning to private life or by accepting employment while in the senate. Yet the senator who becomes wealthy while in that bod/ is the rare exception. On the house Bide It will be remem bered that both Speaker Reed and Speaker Henderson resigned to return to the practice of law. Reed was not losing much, if anything, as speaker, but he was accumulating nothing. During Henderson's four years as speaker he spent probably $10,000 a year more than his salary, which made large inroads on his modest fortune. I Both of them died within a few years after their retirement and neither left much of an estate. A question of interest at this time Is whether former Senator Spooner will join the "lobby" In Washington. One would think that it would be regarded as perfectly reputable for a former senator or an ex-representative to practice before congress. Take Mr. Spooner's case. He has been a dis tinguished senator for years. He has delved deeply into many national prob lems and has elucidated- them before his associates and the country at large. Just why he. should be debarred from appearing before committees of con gress and arguing a case in behalf of his clients, merely because he was paid to do so, does not appear any more than that a judce, resigning from the bench, should be forbidden to practice law In the courts. ¦' • Yet, If Mr. Spooner should attempt to do so. he will be subjected to all manner of unfavorable criticism, termed a "lobbyist" and be classed •with former Senator Jones, former Senator Thurston, former Senator Faulkner and others, who represent special Interests here from time to time. In this connection it Is somewhat remarkable that those who object to "lobbying" and encourage sensational writers to inflame the country against them never distinguish between those •who attempt to influence legislation in an open and reputable manner and those who pursue other tactics, ex cept to attack the reputable men and let the others go free. For example, Mr. Faulkner never made any secret of the fact that he was employed by certain railroads when the railroad rate bill was under consideration. He ap peared before committees, filed briefs, presented and examined witnesses, gave out Interviews and compiled statements which were presented to members of congress and to the public In general. . On the other hand Judge Cowan of Texas, quite as able an attorney as Mr. Faulkner, pursued the same course as did Mr. E. P. Bacon of Milwaukee), ¦who represented hay and grain ship pers as Judge Cowan did the cattle men. Faulkner Denounced . Yet Senator Faulkner la called a "lobbyist" and denounced in unmeas ured terms, while no unfavorable ref erence Is made to the others. It would seem a fair proposition that the rail roads should be permitted to present their case to the congress and to the public In the same manner as the ship pers of grain and cattle. There la practically no subject of importance before congress that is not supported by some interests and op posed by others. The pure food law was headed by the department of agri culture and supported by associations in all parts of the country, appealing to the press In the most sensational manner by extravagant charges against . the . manufacturers of food products. The latter had millions of doll In vested In their business and they did not wish to sit idly by while profes sional agitators and sensation mongers drove congress to extreme legislation. Consequently they appeared in person and by attorneys; the subject was threihed out for ttome years before 'congressional' committees, and in the ami v, pretty fair law was enacted. The manufacturers did not succeed in 'protecting their interests as fully an they wished, nor did the agitator* get all they asked for, but no manufac turer U going to be put out of bunlnens by: the law if he chooses to comply with it* terms, and the agitation cur tulnly produced come Rood results. Some manufacturers hoped that by means of a purs food law, worded to suit thorn, they would obtain certain trade advantages over their competi tors, and fell In behind the advocates of the bill, yet It would be grossly unfair to charge that all who favored the bill wore actuated by selfish mo tives. Similarly few manufacturers op posed pure food legislation In Itself, but merely wished to protect them selves against unjust leslslatlon. There Is no question but that sooner or later congress will be compelled to take some action to separate the sheep from the goatS by providing that those Who undertake to Influence legislation shall do so openly, and state whom they represent. • • • The recent activities of E. H. Harrl man in this city and elsewhere, par ticularly 111 the line of making state ments to the newspapers, has caused much speculation as to the future re lations between the government and the railroads. Some years ago Senator Newlands of Nevada championed the proposition that if the government undertook to regulate rates It should also regulate dividends. it Is evident that the rail road question has not been settled. ln fact It Is simply opening up. The safety of the country demands fewer grade crossings and the extension and perfection of the block signal system. The business Interests demand more engines and cars, more tracks and lncreased terminal facilities. Legisla tures are passing 2-cent rate laws and the railroads are retaliating by cutting off excursions and commutation tickets. Wall street Investors generally are looking for Increased dividends. The railroads themselves, meaning the men actually engaged In operating the roads, are caught between the two conflicting Interests, and In addition are met with demands from their em ployes for more pay and reduced hours. Altogether It would seem that if congress Is to regulate rates and hours of employes, compel Improvements In block signals and other facilities It ought to take cognizance of dividends. Certainly improvements can be made only if new stocks or bonds are issued which means Increased fixed charges, or from the current earnings. It seems unfair for congress to regulate that source of Income and then permit the stock jobbers to determine what should bc done with it. Senator Newlands advocated that the dividends should bc limited to a fixed and fair amount and the remainer expended In improve ments. "When the income became more than was necessary rates were to be reduced. Apparently Mr. Harrlman, If he can read between the lines, has become convinced that unless closer and more friendly relations exist between the government and the railroads the lat ter will eventually be swallowed by the former. And it seems that as long as the finances of the roads are to be Juggled about by Wall street specula tors the traveling and shipping public will have to suffer either In the matter of rates or facilities. « ■ > FOOTPADS DEAL HARD FIRST BLOW Knock a Young Painter to the Street and Injure Him Severely Be. fore Going Through His Pockets J .

It is a small brick building, purchased last January at the time of the organ ization of the church. It was origin ally a dwelling house of five rooms, built in mission style, with two un pretentious towers, the whole looking on the outside more like a neatly-con structed church building than a resi dence. At the service yesterday Rev. Otto Satzinger, the pastor, presided. Rev, J . G. Mangold, member of the mission board of the coast, of Woodland, preached the dedicatory sermon in German, taking his text from Psalms, 2 6-8. Rev. F. Reiser of Pasadena as- Blsted In the service. The service was opened with a violin solo with organ accompaniment. The church choir and male . quartet fur nisher, music. The church is the result of the efforts of Rev. -Mr. Satzinger, a portion of the German church organized five years ago on Washington street and others. This church was organized to better accommodate the German-speaking people of that portion of the city. It consists of about thirty families, with a Sunday school. Ladles' Aid and Young People's societies. Rev. Mr. Satzinger was Bent to Los Angeles from Nebraska five years ago by the home mission board of evan gelical synod of North America to or ganize a church which resulted in the organization of St. Paul's German church on Washington street. A good church building was built there three years •,<•. mv Mr. iM'tilng' i wan the pastor of that church until last January, when he organized the new church. The mother church la now bo m« supplied. The new church has a seating ca pacity of 125 and will be enlarged as necessity demands. The property Is valued at about $4500 and la clear from lncumbrancei. LOS ANGELES HERALDj MONDAY MORNTNQ. MARCH 18. 1907. THE RAILROADS TEHUANTEPEC ROAD A POTENT FACTOR PROPOSAL PENDING TO DIVERT PACIFIC FLEET Isthmian Line Attracts Business from Panama and Transcontinental Roads— News of the Rail. road World The potent Influence of the Tehuante pee railroad as a factor In the trans continental freight situation Is shown In the proposal to divert a portion of the Pacific Mall fleet from the Panama s' incllCO run to connect with the Tphuantppec road at Sallna Cruz. This plan, according to advices re ceived In Los Angeles, is now being considered by E. H. Harrlman and General Manager Schwerln of the Pa cific Mall. The Tehuantepec railroad has already made traffic arrangements with the Hawaiian-American steamship line, and heavy cargoes nre being delivered at CoatsacolCOl and Sallna Cruz, to be transhipped. The Tehuantepec road, In fact, is in fill operation as a carrier of transcontinental freight and Is able to offer such rates as to attract busi ness both from the Panama railroad and from the American transconti nental lines. If Judiciously handled, it Is probable that It will prove to be one of the most profitable pieces of railroad in the world, as the Panama road has been, so financiers predict. Since the United States became the owner of the Panama railroad. it has been evident that the Tehuantepec rail road. If properly equipped and man aged, railroad men say, would succeed to much of the business that has been going via Panama. The United States cannot well operate Its railroad as a competitor of the Tehuantepec road. The Panama road is still a common carrier, and will handle all business offered until the competition of the canal causes its abandonment except for local uses. But it cannot be ex pected to reach out for business as a private concern would be free to do. The Tehuantepec road, on the other hand. Is being operated purely as a money-making institution, with un usual powers by reason of being an instrument of the Mexican government itself. The report that the Pacific Mall is about to make a traffic arrangement with the railroad is sufficient to indi cate the importance of the new thor oughfare across the continent. REACH CRISIS IN MAIL CARS Railroad Officials Will See Postmaster General The big mail-carrying railroads have decided to make an appeal to the new postmaster general against the rule which the former Incumbent of the posi tion promulgated requiring a change In the methods of weighing the malls A meeting was held In Chicago by the superintendents of malls for nearly all the heavy mail-carryingr roads, and It was the general opinion that the new order, if carried out, would make It Impossible for the railroads to furnish the present service. The new order requires that the average weight of mall carried, the ] basis on which the total pay is com puttd, shall be determined by dividing , total weight carried for several days by ( seven Instead of six, as at present. It has been agreed that a committee J 3hall be appointed, made up of one rep- t resentative of the three strongest . western and two of the strongest ' eastern roads, and that this committee j shall lay the question before the post master general. J If the attempt does not succeed then i it will be necessary for the railroads , to say whether they will bo compelled , to curtail the fast mail service. 1 Any attempt on the part of a single road or of two or three roads to do so 1 will result in general diversion of the malla to railroads which accepted the ruling. Therefore, if there is to be any attempt to curtail the mail service, it is | admitted, it must be by a concerted move by all of the main mail routes. SPOKANE MAKES A HARD FIGHT Freight Discrimination Case Is Set for ' Monday The complaint of the city of Spokane of discrimination in freight rates from the eastern cities as compared with rates to the Pacific coast cities will bo beard by the interstate commerce com mission today in the United States I'uurt in Chicago. A plea is made for the same rates : from Chicago and New York to i Spokane as apply to the Pacific coast terminals because Spokane is 400 miles nearer Now York than the coant ter minals. The coast Jobber can buy in New Fork or Chicago at the sarm fivight rate, but Spokane must pay a higher rate from New York than from Chicago. The Hepburn bill, as interpreted by the commission, Will have a tendency to make many changes in existing tariffs, ami after wrestling with the problem for more than a week the Transcontinental association adjourned until a committee of the western lines goes to Washington to talk with the commission and gptu an understanding as to what the association can do In re conciling the two tariffs. If one class tariff Is abolished and the other Is extended to cover the entire west Spokane's complaint will not have any basis as to class rates. The case promises to be fought hard as Chicago will Interpose an objection to making the rate to Spokane the same from both New York and Chicago us it will increase the competition of the local commercial Interests.

At that date Los Angeles boasted of ibout 7000 inhabitants, and this direc tory was the first real city directory Issued. It was printed by the Mirror Printing, Ruling and Binding house, the type being of a coarse and crude character as Is generally used In print ing primers for the use of little chil dren, and the advertisements printed within its leaves are all set forth In wood type of the most ancient date. The book Is priceless. It Is probably the only one of its kind left In the city, m d the owner, Sam Kutz, clerk of de partment 8 of the superior court, would not part with it for money. Compares Two Directories Kutz had the book on display last week alongside the recent directory is sued by the city. The first dozen leaves 3 f the new directory would more than :over every name In this first little Jirectory, and beside the great red Dook the little brown one appears like i patent medicine advertisement. If come of the eminently stylish roung persons of the present could only ok back through the pages of this ittle book and see what their ancestors were doing not more than thirty years igo they might not be quite so boast 'ul of their lineage, for some very well mown names appear in the book with •ather humble titles, such as dray irlver, wine and liquor dealer, pipe ayer and similar occupations. Many names of streets have been changed since that period. Jefferson street at that time was in the neigh jorhood of Allso, while long Spanish lames were on the street signs. Were Easy.Going Days Los Angeles in those days did not mow whether it was a village or a meblo, and what was more It didn't are. In the afternoon everyone took heir regu'ar siesta, and things were o quiet that the mosquitoes whirling bout the sleeping cholos on Main treet could be heard picking their teeth .fter partaking of chill flavored diet. Those were the days before the plug tats. None had ever been seen in Los Vnga les. One man in town had a dress uit, and he was arrested on suspicion he first time he appeared in it because ho town marshal had seen the villain if a one-night stand show wear a slmi ar costume some nights before. There were three Chinese laundries lere at that time, and they all closed >ecause of lack of business. In the lirectory the inhabitants of the beauti ul and glorious land of flowers and mnshine are referred to by the pet •pithets used by the natives. For in itance, in the case of one particular ndivldual unknown to the census aken, "Jackass" Jennings went down >n the book as Jackass Jennings, and !very one was satisfied. There were ibout thirty men in town who could >oast of a middle initial to their names. Most of them were simply known as 3 111 or Pete or Sam or Jim, and every me knew who they were. Some of the Features There were three ministers in Los Angeles at that time and close to 150 vine merchants, and yet the town man iged to eke out a meager existence.

THIRTY THOUSAND EDUCATORS COMING CONVENTION WILL BREAK ALL RECORDS Railroad* Offer Special Rates, and Hotels Are Making Every Effort to Make Pedagogues' Stay Happy Thirty thousand pedagogues and their friends are expected to come to Los Angeles In July to attend the next an nual session of the National Educa tional association. The records made by all past conventions wll bo com pletely outclassed by the monster meet lng,IIng, both In numbers attending and In the program offered. Every teacher In the country Who lays any claims to being a pedagogue or educator belongs to the National Educational associa tion, and reports from tne east seem to show that every member who pos sibly can will be present at the great meeting which will be heiu in this city from July 8 to 13. The coming convention will offer three-fold Inducements to the educators. In the first place, It will give them an opportunity to meet with the brightest minds of th« country and It will give them a liberal education In pedagogy by association with the brightest lights of their profession. Then, too^ the question of the summer vacation will be settled; for a California trip will combine all the pleasures of a mountain Journey, a seashore vacation and a rail road ride, for one fare. Finally, and this Is by no means the least point in Its favor, the visitors will have an op portunity to see California. With many easterners, to see the Golden state is a life ambition, and the teachers will have a chance to satisfy this ambition for almost half the cost of a trip ordi narily. Special Rates Offered All over the country the railroads are making special rates to the City of An gels, and indications point to one of the largest conventions the national asso ciation has ever held. The rates west to Chicago have not yet been fixed, nor have the rates within this state; but from Chicago to California the railroads have made a special rate of one fare plus $2 for the round trip. It is thought that the other comapnios will not fall behind in the liberality of their offers. The last former meeting of the asso ciation was held at Asbury Park two years ago. At that time it was decided to meet in San Francisco in 1906, but the disaster that wrecked the northern part of the state decided the associa tion officials against coming west, and, as it was too late to arrange for another meeting place, no convention was held. Although Los Angeles had no legal or moral claim to the association this year, local boomers succeeded In having the pedagogues decide In favor of this city, and that notwithstanding the fact that Philadelphia made a hard fight to se cure the desired meeting. May Use Auditorium The largest auditorium in the city will be needed to hold the assembly which will gather hero in July. At present plans are being made to hold the meetings in the Auditorium theater unless some larger hall can be secured by July. The smaller halls of the city will be used to hold committee meet ings, of which there will be many. One of the most important questions tc be brought up will be the adoption of a new charter, which was recently granted the association by congress. Up to the present time the association has been working under an old charter which. it is said, is utterly inadequate Cor the needs of the body. The new charter will prevent individual "boss- Ism" to a great extent, and local educa tors say it is for this reason that sev eral educators will oppose it. Miss Margaret Haley, head of the Chicago Teachers' union, Is one of the strongest opponents of the new charter, and It is expected that she will make a deter mined fight against Its adoption. It is whispered In local educational circles that Miss Haley has ambitions to rule the association, and the new charter will interfere with her pet plans. Pro-.iinent Men to Speak The program has not yet been com pleted, but the list of speakers already decided upon promises much for the suc cess of the convention. , The number Includes Dr. Nathan Shaefer, president of the association and superintendent of Pennsylvania schools; Dr. Irwln Shephard, Wlnona, T'inn., secretary of the association; Superintendent Max well of New York city. Superintendent Cooley of Chicago, Superintendent Straton Brooks of >oston, Superintend ent J. H. Van Sickle of Baltimore, Su perintendent Brumbach of Philadelphia, Superintendent Ellson of Cleveland, President Judson oi the University of Chicago, United States Commissioner of Education Elmer A. Brown and former Commissioner W. T. Harris. President Wheeler of the state university will also be present. Dr. Jordan of Stan ford will be out of the state at the time. Dr. E. C. Moore, city superintendent of schools, Is working early and late, together with representatives from the Los Angeles chamber of commerce and the hotel men, to arrange everything for the accommodation and comfort of the coming visitors. The- hotel men are arranging for the material comforts of the guests at the same time the superintendent's office la working for their mental feasts. One of the principal points which will be settled during the coming week is the location of the main headquarters of the convention. This will We at one of the downtown hotels, but which one shall house them is the question. Bids will be handed In by all the larger downtown houses. Central location will be taken Into consideration, as well as rates, in awarding the main headquar ters to a hotel. ;. ' • .■• . Question of Headquarters In addition to the national headquar ters «ach state will also have its indi vidual headquarters. As many states as possible will be placed In the same hotel with the main officials, but many others will be scattered around among the other hostelrles. 8. J. Whltmore of the Alexandria, who is at the head of the hotel men's committee, said yesterday: "We will award the main headquarters during the coming week and plans will be pushed forward rapidly. We haven't had a meeting yet, but Intend to go to work In earnest next week." Dr. Moore Maid yesterday: "We have been asked not to make too much of the social feature and we won't. Of course, there will be some special fea ture* arranged, but we haven't decided on them yet. " I believe the convention will be the largest the association ha* ever seen.
