AS a result of skillful campaign

the corporation-political machine
which Interferes with the free play of
civic and political Influences in Cali
fornia, the railroad regulation law WSJ
Interfered with to an.extent that leaves
the state not much better off than
it was before- the "remedial" legisla
tion was Introduced. The work of put
ting an effective railroad regulation
law on the statute books, which was
begun at the session of IPO?, remains
to be completed by the legislation of
The anti-machine element labored
for the passage of a railroad
regulation law providing for: —The
physical valuation of railroad proper
ties within the state, as a basis for
fixing equitable railroad rates. 2—The
employment of experts by the state
board of railroad commissioners to as
sist that body In the work of solving
the- difficult problems with which in the
effective discharge of their duty they
■would be called upon to deal. The pro
vision of such experts will take the
commissioners nut of the ornamental
or desuetudinous class, and make them
useful— at least deprive them of
further excuse for being useless.
3—Fixing adequate penalitles of fine
AND Imprisonment for the violators
of the rules and regulations govern
ing common carriers.
4— Making tin prosecution of such of
fenders comparatively easy by auth
orizing the district attorneys of the
various counties to institute suits.
&— Providing the equipment (such as
blanks fur eliciting Information under
oath, etc.) which would enable tin:
state board of railroad commissioners
to secure the necessary data regarding
common carriers within the state:
without which data they arc unable to
act Intelligently or effectively. 6—Rea
sonable freight classitlelation. 7—
Abatement (if the -giving abuse.
—Authority for the state board of
commissioner^ to make rules govern
ing demurrage, changes, etc.
9 —Rules making it impossible for a
common carrier to advance rate - with
out first applying to the state board
of railroad commissioners. 10 — That a
common carrier wishing to dispute un I
order or rule of the state board of '
commissioners must become plaintiff,
to establish its contention. 11—To em-i
power the state board of railroad com
missioners In the event of a dispute
over rates, to fix an absolute rate,
from which the common carrier with- i
out consent of the railroad commis
sioners may not depart.
By adroit, unscrupulous and unde- I
niably clever actii the machine pre
vented the passage of a patriotic bill
containing these provisions, and thus
temporarily thwarted the will of the
overwhelming majority of the people
of the state of California.
Solid three supervisors have succeed
ed in attracting attention to the coun

community thai lias plighted its po

Improvement iatinn resolution, or
question their sincerity us friends of]

standing ns citizens and their loyalty
to the harbor are established. But I J
do most strongly dissent from their po
sition as expressed in these resolutions,
because I am convinced that if their re
quest be complied with It will only be
to Invite trouble unnecessarily, and
really to play into the hands of those '
who are Interested in obstructing: the |
city's plans and In postponing as long
as possible the day of the city's suc
cess in the harbor.

Undoubtedly Greater Los Angeles will
live up to its honor in every detail of

AT THE banquet of Los Angeles
realty hoard former Judge Klliott
of Colorado defined our city in a
graphic, brief descriptive phrase. He
said: "I,os Angeles is the key of Soutn
ern California."
The description can hardly be im
proved. On the prosperity of Southern
California depends to a great extent
the prosperity of Greater Ix>s Angeles.
But, on the other hand, the prosperity
of Southern California depends to a
great extent on the prosperity of
Greater I,os AngelCl, The health of
the metropolis is dependent on the
health of the state, hut the health of
the .state is dependent on the health of
the metropolis,
Since the great program of consolida
tion and of harbor Improvement and
development was undertaken and en
tered upon by Los Angeles, the pros
pects for the future prosperity and de
velopment of Southern California have
been enlarged, and the outlook is
brighter than ever it was before. With
the ever Increasing prosperity of Great
er Los Angeles the prosperity of South
ern California is Increasing ever.
The key city of Southern California
;is more; it is the Key city of the
Pacific coast, And on the completion
|Of the Panama canal Greater I.os An
geles will be without rival this side of
Chicago, it will be the metropolis of
the far west.

iTH ROM The Herald's announcement
FROM to subscription announcement
as tn subscription rates we re
| ■*• print the following: "The Herald |
at the present time prints regularly
••very day more separate NEWS items
than any other paper published in the
city, and frequently double the num
ber of separate Items published by one
iof the other morning papers, it also
I prints the full Associated Press dis
| patches, together with special dis
patches on matters of sufficient impor
tance? to the intelligent reading public
to demand special treatment."
In other words, The Herald gives the
people of Los Angeles an expert and
reliable news service. It docs not pre
sent id heterogeneous jumble of omnium
gatherum guesses, but an orderly array
of carefully ascertained facts. It does
not exaggerate minor and minimize
major features in a news story In order
to obtain the bizarre and grotesque
effect sometimes called "yellow." The
Herald's aim is to print the news, all
the news, and, In ihe news columns,
nothing but the news. Los Angeles
.Herald is a NEWS paper.
IT IP suggested that citizens should
take active part in the Cannon
controversy and help express defi
nitely the opinion of the American
people as to the oppressive, repressive.
un-American force called Cannonism,
by writing to Republican congressmen
and candidates for congressional nomi
nation a letter like the following:
"Dear Sir: I understand you are a
candidate for the Republican nomina
tion for congress in this district. As
a voter in the district I wish to ask
you these questions:
"If elected to congress, will you vote
for or against Cannon for speaker in
the Republican caucus? If the Repub
lican mucus should nominate Cannon
for speaker, will you vote FOR Can
non or against Cannon in the regular
session of congress?
"If you will be good enough t" lei
me know your position on these ques
tions I shall feel that I can cast my
ballot more intelligently. Thanking
you for the favor of a reply, I am,
yours very truly.''
Cannonism is an attack on Ameri
canism, and menaces the liberties
guaranteed under the constitution. Any
kind of despotism is out of pla< c In
a free country, but the despotism that
would regulate representatives of. the
American nation in congress assembled
and "direct" their deliberation! in or
der that the ends and alms of cer
tain Interests may be furthered, is a
serious and intolerable menace to lib
erty, and must be ended.
Public interest in the establishment
of a federal steamship line on tin-

which only a minority believed in or

A start must bi> made somewhere,
and what better li there than the con
solidating of this widespread belief
that the accumulating of wealth has
1 n carried to extremes and should bo
checked because of its Injustice and
tlv danger of it to the republic its If.
All know that in the end we must rely
on taxation as a, corrective. The most
mldly progressive will not scare if the.

REDLANDS, March L'fl— IKdltor Her
ald]: I think we should all welcome
tin- appearance of such letters as that
by M. is. Hemingway, calling nur at
tention to the need of setting down to
bottom principles, and reminding us
that the public "pinion or this country
N very deficient in grasp of economic!,
«s compared with Hint in Europe. The
unfortunate fact is that those who real
ly run tho country have their noses
burled In their ledgers and know noth
ing beyond the details of, their own
builneu. it was this no doubt that
made De Tocquevllle speak <<t the busi
ness men of this country as "the wont
rulers mankind has ever had," while it
is significant that I'arlyle and Herbert
Spencer, I oth of whom thought the fu
ture stormy, said the United States
would bo the first to "shoot Niagara,"
i aa the former expressed it.
\\v don't want to go over Niagara,
but we shall if the business men, who
are the ones really responsible, go on
as they have been going, consulting:
only their Individual pockets, and ip
noring tho tangle Into which things are
getting. We have pot to educate them,
ami probably tho first thing is to mako
them 966 that true education on eco
nomics must b' 1 encouraged.
This brings one directly to the all-
Important question of free Bpeech,
which is being suppressed, ut tho in-
Btance of these same business men, in
an unspeakably shameful way. And
without really free speech, such as Is
tin; ruin in England, for example,
where open-air meetings and the ex
pression nf even the most revolutionary
thoughts are favored by the authori
ties, tiu' education of the public is im
possible. W •' justified in warning
il,,- business men that if these princi
ples, which an- pressing so urgently
tor solution, are left to be fought out
between ignorant change and ignorant
opposition to change,' there will be a
hurricane of trouble.
I indorse the suggestion for a Hora'd
school of economies, if only because it
would foster free and more Intelligent
speech. A. VOC.ELSTKIN.
LOB ANGELES, March M.—[Editor Herald]:
Having got the public so seared that the,
council felt called upon to put In an ordi
nance to muzzle all dogs, the promoters of the
,u*i am yet not satisfied; and some of The
Herald Loiter Box writers even are trying to
go one better. 'I'll. Rood people, who mostly
pretend to bo "very fond of dogs," feel
"peeved" because the muzzles In use do not
torture the animal •ufflclently—the dog can In
some cases still "waggle his Jaws" a bit—
mouth Is not sealed tight. Save us—dog and
dog owner together—from the tender mercies
Of th« man who Is "fond of dogs'" only for
the use he can make of them—the dog exploit
er who tries to pass tor a dog lover! They
remind one of the cannibal chief who said his
tribe were "very fond of" missionaries—they
were such "nice" people.
To the generally accepted axiom. "Never hit
a man when he is down." I would add, for the
benefit of some of your correspondents, "Nor
kick a 'log when he Is muzzled."
The dog owner, who Is bearing with ad
mirable patience the vexatious Interference
that Is quite needlessly hampering so element
ary a right as the keeping of a dog, and In
yet threatened with further harassment, feels
that the former axiom of fair play Is being
violated, while the second Is certainly men
aced by this attempt to make the muzzle
more irksome to the helpless dog.
