GRAND PROSPERITY MAGNIFICENT prosperity is indi cated by the record-breaking totals of Los Angeles bank clear ings for the first quarter of the rear; and by the fact the March total is also a record-breaker, being better than any to the score of any preceding month of March in all the history of Los An geles. For the quarter the bank clearings total reported amounts to J]94,:'07.014.:i5, an Increase of $40,5 15, -ims compared with the first quarter of la.st year. Tho March total was $T3,3ii0,26.^, which ox reedi by jx,5(t6,499 the totni for Decem ber, 190S, the highest previous record holder, and beats by $16\Kpr>.577 the total for March of last year. The high est day s total reported was for March 2, on which clearings amounted to the yum, record-breaking for one day, of 14,086,014. Along with these unprecedented fig ures, showing business is hcing done in T>os Angeles on a bumper basis, comes tho quarterly report of bulldins valuations, telling the lamo gratifying story. All Los Angeles records were broken for building valuations for the quarter. The magnificent total, $6,008,578, ex ceeds by $451,040 the total for Mm high est previous quarter, the first three months of 1306. It is more, than double that of the first quarter of last year, the Increase amounting to $2,618,375. Number of permit* was (SM, an in crease of 532 compared with correspond- Ing period of last year. Residence permits totaled $2,538,430, an average of $lyßl. How's that for our UNCLE ALECK TOWN? Is it a VILLAGE OR A CITY? Los Angeles way it the way of good government.

Bully] In spite of all rivalries, baseball is Ftill THH AMERICAN OAMB. Other nations play football. Scotland invented golf, lCn.Rl.ind dawdles through interminable cricket matches, played seriously and serially, on the install ment plan. I'olo is popular. Tennis Is fascinating and tame, croquet is to other Rames what afternoon tea is to other meals. But baseball is robust, manly, agr gresslve, progressive, free. Indepen dent, world leading and American. The multitude of baseball enthusiasts grows bigser every year, and popular knowledge of thr> game is widespread— practically universal. Tommy talks ball to his mamma at the supper table, and mamma understands, and roos with him to the next big game. Basoball is the one and only game of its type. It may be "rounders" de veloped, as some prosy historians pre tend. It may be "pri-oner's I mixed up with rounders. We don'l ire What Its evolutionary history may be.

SEES PARALLEL FOR SHIPPING TROUBLES IN ANCIENT FABLE LOB ANGKI.KS, .Mart-h 116.—fEditor Herald]: The present activity of the fruit grower* of Southern California with reference to tho cost of ■hipping and the relations to the railroad com panies in general, reminds one of a certain fable from the ancient times. which in its simpler forms illustrate the more complex problems of modern tWMportatlOßi and is very applicable to the present situation bora. Some unprincipled persons went Up from the city of Delhi and robbed the caravans, botli when they came out from the valley with their products and when they returned with the fruits of their commerce. Then these ban dits built strongholds in the mountain and preyed upon the traffic of the people. Thus were the people troubled and alarmed, and they made great religious festivals and sacrificed and prayed to the god of the mountain and the road. But still the robberies went on, until at length this became a regu lar custom, submitted to from long usage. s<> the people built new temples and prayed that the rapacity of the robbers might he restrained. But the robbers Increased in wealth and power while the people toiled on and suffered. After many years there arose in the hearts of some a new notion—that the robbers should be driven away. There were many who looked upon this no tion as sacrilege against the gods that guarded the mountain pass. But the new idea spread until Its rumor reached the ears of the robbers. Where upon they lessened somewhat the rigor of their exactions for a time, and even repaired bad places in the road, so that the new idea was a little stayed in its progress. Yet It continued to grow, and at last the people took arms and went up into the mountain and drove out the robbers. In our own present dilemma, it seems likely that the banditti of transporta tion would take a keener interest in the complaints of the people if more energy were put into an agitation for national railroads and less Into sacri llclng and praying to tin god of their interstate commerce. One would almost think that the logic of the situation would force its Way at last into the minds of these outraged shippers, and that producers and consumers alike would go up into the mountain and drive out the robbers and guard the roads and manage them. In no other way can the people lie free,| from these robberies. V. J. W. SAY "WEALTH IS PRODUCT OF LABOR," ONLY HALF TRUTH LOS ANGELES, March 28.—[Editor Herald]: The oft repeated assertion by Socialists that "wealth is the product of labor" is only half a truth, and ll misleading, because there are other features besides labor necessary to pro duce wealth. Available wealth la the stored up surplus over consumption, and nothing else, and labor is the means used for sustaining, promoting and improving life; for activity is life. Home must labor to make a living; some that have a living must labor to hold that living; those that are born with wealth must labor to keep what they have, and all must labor to obtain more desirable thing! than they pos sess. Thus activities Of every kind conduce to progress in general. Hut Socialists have In view wage labor, and they seem to Imply that when labor lia.s received its wages it has still a claim upon that which constitutes wraith, when labor had no hand di- rectly in producing that surplus; and then there is the envious cry among them that they are defrauded, which is not knowing the difference between "mine and not mine." Every one is entitled to all the wages he can get according to contract, and he gets what is his. Would you have wealth earn more than you spend? For that is the only Way to have wealth. Those that decry present economic conditions and advocate communism forget that these conditions are uni versal, and this country could not sep arate itself from the community of na tions in its commercial intercourse; hence communism is impossible. Be sides that, human nature is such that no man will work if not directly for himself. . C. F. POINTS DISTINCTION BETWEEN THE LAND AND LAND VALUES LOS ANOELES, March M. [Editor Herald]: "A Socialist" replies to my letter of .March 17 In the following ex traordinary language, the quotation being that of ins opening sentence: "The person that signs 'Single Taxer' snys: 'If c calls such lots "products of labor he appears to me to have a large think coming. "Single Taxer' is the one who has the large think coming." In deed? A child can tell you that real ci tate lots have been from all time part of the globe on Which we live, and that they have not been produced by hu man labor. That is what differentiates them from the chattels labor calls into existence. What have been produced by labor, Ini Pease of population and other agen cies are the land value.-. Let me il lustrate. I own—as they call it a lot on Broadway. Around me Improvement* go on, but not a lick of work is done on niy lot. Or, a great rush of popu lation sets in. i >r, ag.un, valuable oil deposits are discovered, in all these cases my land value Increases without any effort on my part The increase may be due to labor dime in the neighborhood, or to the mere coining of more people, or to the discovery of unexpected wealth in the bowels of tin earth. In all three cases the effect Is the same. I reap where l have not sown, and this is unjust. The single tax doctrine li based on the theory that all are entitled to ■hare equally in the bounties of na ture. Where a piece of land becomes, from any agency whatever, exception ally valuable, It represents a special privilege that the holder enjoys at the expense of the rest of the community. He should pay the full price to the community for that special privilege, thereby restoring the balance of equity. 1 trust the Socialist party, as a whole, is not under the delusion that labor produces lots, if so, it Is In a bad way. BINGL ETAXER. CONSIDERS CITY ATTORNEY'S STATEMENT AS MASTERLY LOS ANGELES. March 30.—[Editor Herald]: Having carefully read In to day's Herald the masterly statement of City Attorney Hewitt relative to the expenditure of the 18,000,000 asked for in the proponed bond election for har bor Improvement, 1 desire to give pub lic expression to my appreciation of the fairness, completeness and logical conclusiveness of said statement. It seems to me to have left no point un .touched nor without a complete and satisfactory answer; and in view of the vital nature of the issues involved Mr. Hewitt is entitled to the grati tude of the community for so lucid, painstaking and exhaustive a state ment. If the remarkable history made by this city during the last year means anything it means that the men who have been intrusted with the adminis tration of the city's affairs are deter mined to keep faith with the people and to carry to a successful issue every enterprise, whether small or great, that has become or may »e --como a part of the great development opening up before this community in its strides toward commercial suprem acy and better government. Let us have the bonds. MELVILLE DOZIBR. SAYS GOOD CHARACTER ' IS REAL STAMP OF "LADY" OXNARD, March 29.—[Editor Her ald]: I fully concur with your corre spondent's definition of "A Lady."

Points to Political Faith Per plexities TO BACK NYE, A REPUBLICAN Candidacy of Comptroller for Re- Election Indorsed by Both Sides T. SHELLEY SUTTON Chairman Albert M. Norton of the Los Angeles county Democratic central committee pointed yesterday to an In ! teresting situation which may arise from tho good government movement and its organisation in California. This movement for purer politics, bettor government «nd more efficient men, which is general throughout tho state mid In Lob Angeles, has crystal lised Into a famous and far-reaching organization that has revolutionised the administrative affairs of the city, has tho support of the best men In i all parties, and has bean led and en couraged by these men without re gard to political adulations. As a result of this, the good gov ernment movement and its organiza tion has in at least two of the largest cities in the state, where political des tinies are decided, become i tremen dous force to be reckoned with: and. led by the beat men In the various po litical parties, these parties must look to the good government organizations before selecting or' Indorsing candi dates. The "machine" recognizes this fact; so do the "reformed" Republi cans, league members and Democrats, The "old push" candidates are afraid of it.':-.-'; DEMOCRATS I'l HUB Chairman Norton of the 1..08 Angeles county Democratic central committee declares the Democrats are more anx ious than any others to respect the wishes of the good government forces; but a good government movement, such as exists in l.os Angeles, Is strictly non-partisan, and this will re sult In perplexing problems for Dem ocrats and Republicans alike. Bo far, It Is believed by the lead. the I,ineo!n-Roosevolt league has nt least three men in the Held whom the good government organizations will favor, although formal Indorsement li not expected. These men arc Hiram Johnson for governor, A. .1. Walla... for lieutenant-governor and Judge J. D. Works for senator. There are oth ers, also considered to be .lean and capable men, who will receive the support of a large majority, if not of all of the good government men, Mr. Norton says the Democrats do not want to be placed In the light of "fusing," yet it is considered by him probable that in one or two Instances, lit the least, the Democrats will tie called on virtually to indorse Repub lican candidates, because these candi dates represent good government prin ciples. As a result of the good government movement, say the leaders, the Re publlcans and Democrats will put up the best array of candidates ever of fered to the voters and some delicate problems of political duty may result. The Democrats may wish, says Mr. Norton, to indorse several of the Re publican candidates, but partisan prin i pies will not permit of this; M there undoubtedly will be one or two exceptions taken to the old rule. NYK uNorroeßD Mr. Norton and other Democratic au thorities believe the Democrats will place no candidate In tin- field against Comptroller A. B. Nye, who has an nounced his candidacy for re-election on the regular Republican ticket. Therefore, it Is said, Mr. Nye, at least. If not one or two others, may receive what to all intents and purposes will be the Democratic indorsement. There are reasons for this . Mr, Ny« ■ record say many political leaders of all parties, has been exceptionally clean and commendable. in Southern Cali fornia there is no candidate whose an nouncement has elicited more favorable comment than that* of Comptroller Nye whose re-election Is deemed im portant. Regardless of partisanship, he is liked generally because of his work. Mr. Nye was born in Stockton In 1853, and was for a number of years editor of the Oakland Enquirer, As secretary to Governor Pardee he devised the present plan of state taxation, which has been highly Indorsed as the most practical and satisfactory yet known. When lie took hold of the treasury he found the public money of the state lying useless in the vaults, earning nothing. He devised ■ system by which these state funds were put out on deposit and made to yield hundreds of thousands of dollars to enrich the state's treasury. He devised the In heritance tax plan, and through its later becoming a law, California be came inestimably richer, He also de veloped the present system of report- Ing the revenues and expenditures of the various counties, whereby the state comptroller's office keeps its hand di rectly on the pulse of every public treasury and money channel In the state. WOULD DEAL iaiki.v Mr. Nye also proved his fairness when he* vigorously opposed the gigantic In crease of 40 per cent in the assessment of Southern California properties, whereby l"** Angeles in particular Vas made to boar more than its just burden of state taxation. Despite Mr. Kye's protests, the taxation was en forced, but Mr. Nye was not blamable in the matter. . ..; It is the duty of the comptroller to co'lect state taxes, and this is consid ered one of the most difficult duties In the state administration. When Mr. Nye became state comptroller he was sailed on to collect the taxes due the which latter corporation stubborn ly refused to pay. There was due the state back taxes from this corporation for the years 1907-08-09, and Mr. Nye at once insti tuted suit to i over the ta- <* for l!) 07, using this year for a test ease. He won the suit, and it is believed now that the taxes for the other two years also will be forthcoming if not outside of court, then by litigation. The col lection of these taxes means it vast increase in the state funds of Cali fornia. Mr. Nyo also Instituted the civil ser vice system in his department, by Which politics has been eliminated en tirely from his office, efficient clerical help has been obtained, wrangling is unknown and merit counts for pro motion.

PLAN BREECHES BUOY FOR VICTIMS OF SURF Engineer Proposes Placing of a Cable Car Device at Long Beach Application was filed yesterday with Lieut. Charles T.

The diagrams of the proposed hath- Ing station Indicate that a novel method of life-saving Is to be Installed, if the engineers approve the plan. This life-saving system, which will be conducted In connection with the bathing station, will cost In the neigh borhood of $30,000 or 140,000, and will consist Of two high towers, 'one erected on the shore and the other built on a concrete foundation about 600 feet out In the ocean, in the top observatory of which a swimmer will he statincd to keep his eye on Hie bathers and dive In at a moment's notice to make res cues. Between these towers, which will be directly In front of the proposed bath house at the foot of Golden avenue, will be operate, a basket car, run by a system of cables extending between the towers. This car will be so constructed and operated that it can ho lowered to rescue any person whom the life-savers Bnd drowning. W. 11.
