A few days prior to the presidential
election of innt Judge Alton B. Parker
lmpressively declared th.it the national
Republican committee had raised a va9t
sum of money from the trusts and
great corporations, and that this
money was to be used In carrying the
country for Roosevelt.
President Roosevelt promptly and
emphatically denied the charge and
called upon Parker for the proofs.
Unfortunately Judge Parker was either
unable or unwilling to present the
proofs at that time, and the election
went by default to Roosevelt and Fair
Not long afterward the disclosures
of rorruptlon In the great life In
surance cnmpnnles revealed the, fact
that thosn companies had contributed
more than ono million dollars to the
Tiepubllcfin campaign fund.
The present controversy between th«
president and Mr. Harrlman proves
conclusively that the railroads aMsd
another large sum tO the Republican
campaign, Harrlman himself standing
sponsor for a quarter of a million dol
Not only that, hut the Harrlman
controversy also illuminates tho pages
of political history by disclosing the
fact that when Chairman Cortolyou
had utterly failed to fry out tho fat of
tl rporations, President Roowvtft
did not hesitate to besmirch his high
office by personally taking a hand In
the game and perslstsently tolling the
corporations along until they "gave
The American people may enjoy that
sort of a spectacle. At any rate, the
chargo made by Judge Alton B. Parker
has been abundantly proven by the
march of events. The Republicans
did raise a great sum for the campaign
of 1904 and President Roosevelt was
a party to at least a portion of It.
It is not a credit to Harrlman that
he paid it, nor to Roosevelt that he
asked for it— but It was paid, and
Roosevelt and the Republican party
reaped the benefit.
Only one regret Is evoked by the an
nouncement that a comprehensive plan
for beautifying Los Angeles haa been
provided for by the city council. The
regret Is that the step was not taken
long ago.
With all the admiration accorded to
the earlier dwellers in this city, the
community of the present day cannot
forgive the civic blunders that now are
such universal sources of regret. It
Jars the pride of the contemporary An
geteno to have his attention called by
visitors to our wondrous misfit In
streets, to the lack of public breathing
places In the central parts of the city,
to tho hideous bridges that span the
river, and to the general want of civic
method in the days that are gone.
But are not the sensitive Angelenos
of the present day amenable to Just the
same measure of criticism that they
mete out to their predecessors?
Los Angeles is a younger city today,
paradoxical as it may seem, than It was
a quarter of a century or more ago.
That is to say, the city's future at the
earlier period, as viewed by its citizens,
had narrow and near limitations. Prior
to Its start as an enterprising American
town the most optimistic citizen hardly
dared to predict that Los Angeles
would ultimately become a city of
100,000 Inhabitants, which is about one
third its present population.
But the future of this city as we all
see It now is without limitation. It is
readily seen that the population will
approximate half a million when the
next federal census Is taken, in 1910,
and it requires no great stretch of im
agination to see a city of a million
right here within a dozen years from
this date.
Consideration of this prospective fu
ture brings us back to the starting
point that the Arigeleno of the present
day Is quite as open to criticism as is
his predecessor for negligence in the
matter of provision for artistic effect in
civic Improvement.
What has the present generation done
in the way of enhancing the natural
beauties of the city and Its environ
But it is "never too late to mend."
It Is impossible to correct all the mis
takes made in the early outlaying of
the city, but the present is just the
time to make provision against mis
takes of the future. That is the point
to which the city council has been
aroused and to which that body has
made response by providing for the
comprehensive plan In question.
The proper course has been adopted
In starting the project for making Los
Angeles "a thing of beauty and a Joy
forever." The relatively trivial sum to
be expended for a plan, designed by a
recognised authority of national fame
In liis Une, will prove to be one of the
most satisfactory investments the city
ever lias made,
The time Is Just lipo now for this
new departure In civic Improvement for
the ri uson that there Is pressing need
tor several now public buildings, new
river bridges, park improvements,
boulevards and more modern streets.
Los Angeles Is Just entering upon a
greatar tnatropolUsj] era which is as
S"ure us the coming of sunrise to cul
minate In making it not only th« me
tropolis of tbe Pacific ooast but one or
tha must Important oltles of the world.
Now is the time to adopt a system that
will warrant Its future characterization
as "The city beautiful."
Whether !•>■ H.nrlman was asked or
nommanflSiTj or whether It waß merely
to htm, the fact remains that
in- ilid hustle up tbe money that the
republicans needed, and gave $50,000
of It himself. And this even
can't deny.
Another collision, this time on th«
Santa Fe. That makes the fatal three
for which, railroad men always look.
Now let there be peace and safety on
the railroads for a spell
' Strikes and lockouts are liable M
occur at any time of the year, but
lka some physical Ailments they are
especially likely to Appear in the early
spring period. Possibly there Is some
connection between the willingness to
abandon work at this time and th>
well known prevalence of the aliment
commonly known as "spring fever."
April and May, particularly the be
ginning of each of those months, are
periods when strikes are of most fre
quent occurrence. That results partly
from the fact that yearly agreements
between employers and workers usually
are made to begin and terminate In
the early days of these months.
From mnny ncctlnns of the United
Stntns we now have reminders that the
Benson of strikes and lockouts is at
hnnd. It Is noticeable, also, that tbi

To tho many woes of San Francisco
a series of early spring strikes ap
pears to be developing. A condition
of widespread unrest prevails among
the trade unions. The glaring graft
disclosures, added to the other tribu
lations of the stricken city, have had
a demoralizing effect all along- the In
dustrial line. The laundry workers
have taken the lead In striking, but
there are fears that the strike infection
will spread rapidly, causing a repetition
of such terrible scenes as San Fran
cisco people have cause to remember
and to dread.
Strikes are reported already at points
as widely separated as Alaska and
Alabama. In New York 10,000 painters
are on strike for Increased wages, and
the workers in other building trades
are expected to follow the lead. Points
in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and
other eastern states report strikes
either in progress or Impending, and
even our Canadian neighbors up at
Vancouver are suffering a total sus
pension of building operations because
of strikes for higher wages.
There are no noticeable symptoms of
contemplated strikes in Los Angeles
this spring. The fact is recognized
among all classes of workers that
wages are exceptionally good In this
city and the prevailing opinion is that
it will be wise to "let well enough
Any other city in the United States
with twice the population of Los An
geles would hall with delight such a
building record as this city presents
for March. The record Is something of
a disappointment here because it falls
short of the phenomenal spurt in March
of last year. But It Is a splendid rec
ord, nevertheless, when all the circum
stances are taken into account.
The total value of building authorized
by the permits for last month reached
well above the mark of one and a quar
ter million dollars and the number of
permits averaged about twenty-five for
every working day. The value far sur
passes the record for any former March
excepting that of last year. In order
to appreciate the good showing of the
March just passed, in respect to build
ing, we need only compare It with the
records for the same month during a
few recent years. The figure for 1905
was $1,176,165; for 1904 it was $951,029;
for 1903 It was $911,817. These years
represent the new era in building ex
pansion. Prior thereto the figures look
quite small comparatively. In March,
1902, only 341 permits were Issued, rep
resenting a value of $591,337; in 1901 the
permit figure was 236 and of value,
$286,152; for 1900, permits, 166, and value,
Tho rapid gain In the last week of the
month Just passed Is a sure index of
tho building expansion that may be ex
pected henceforth. The only fairly good
weather during March was In the last
week, and the spurt of building projects
during that period, as shown by the
record, indicates the previous effects of
the bad weather In retarding such

Tho moot yesterday was the result of
a tie for first between t,os Ansrelos hlph

contingent went to the Stanford Inter

Oakland defeated them, taking first,
with Harvard second and Los Angeles
hlßh third.
Saturday the local boys won their
lost laurels by defeating all comers nt
Bovard field, even the mlrhty Oakland
lads fallliiß down. This resulted In a
tie for first, and a meet wns arranged
between the two teams. By wlnnlnpr
yesterday Los Anpelos hlßh has proven
itself the first team of the state— though
l ikland contested the meet on a tech

that Bristol for Los Angeles fouled

ern hoy out. In reality the high school
lad had a pain of twenty feet on the
Oaklnnd boy, and oven If he had "cut
him out"— which he denies— the foul
would have been only a technical one.
The various teams of the high school,
with the exception of the debaters, have
carried nil before them this term. The
pills' basketball team has won every
game played and is now champion of
Los Anproles County lenßue; the boys'
team has repeated this stunt; the bnsc
ball nine has a straight run of victories
to Its credit, with one exception, and
that was a tie. Charles H. Mills, repre

Saturday to play the Santa Paula team,
which Is the champion of the Channel
league. A track meet which will be
held at the same time threatened to
interfere with the success of the game,
and It was decided to postpone It till
a more suitable time. The four cham
pion teams of the south, Pomona, Or

high, are playing off the semi-finals.
Pomona won from Oran.^a Saturday;
and the team which wins in the contest
between Los Angeles high and Santa

girls, in the event of their winning, ex
pect to go north to play for the cham
pionship of the state.
A table of comparative estimates of
credits and debits of the different high
school activities places the girls' bas
ketbaal team way In the lead as a pay

than $15. the girls have turned into the
treasury more than seventy shining sl
moleons. The boys' basketball team
has cost a great deal more and has
brought In less. The track team re
ceived almost $310, and brought in $45.
The baseball team made the poorest
showing. With expenses aggregating
more than $RO. their credit side of the
ledger shows 14.76. The lunch house has

Believed to Have Been Brought by
I'adres and Hidden from
Indians During
Rev. Juan Caballerla, pastor of the
Plaza church, made a discovery while
recently superintending alterations in
the sacristy of the old mission church
which he considers to be one of the
most important in the history of the
this old church.
Father Caballeria said yesterday:
"A small cross, with the seals of
Rome and containing a small portion
of the real cross on which the Savior
was crucified on Calvary's hill, is the
discovery I have made. It was proba
bly brought to California In tho early
days and either hidden before an In
dian attack on the church or put away
and forgotten by some former pastor
of the church. Many finds have been
made within its precincts, but I con
sider this the most important and will
have a shrine built for it at the altar
of the Blessed Virgin, where the sacred
relic will be publicly placed next Sun
day with elaborate ceremonies."
Within the past week Father Cabal
leria has placed In the church several
old paintings brought to California by
the early missionaries, and which in
olden times adorned its walls. "The
Resurrection," a canvas 6xlo feet, has
been placed over the entrance to the
baptistry, while a painting of "Our
Lady of the Holy Rosary" has been
placed over the entrance to the church.
An old statue of St. Thomas, of Span
ish carving, has also recently been
placed in the church.
For the sanctuary walls Father Ca
ballerla is having painted a large can
vas representing the "Assumption,"
and has recently had the painting back
of the main altar retouched and two
kneeling angels placed near the main

Father Caballeria has planned to

paintings, which will be seen to better
advantage in different light.

stock besides which had been taken in exchange on piano sales.
We don't care to carry these organs in stock, as we need the
