Municipal Affairs FIXING STREET LINES FOR HARBOR FRONTAGE Engineer's Department Estab , lishing Grades for High ways in San Pedro Street lines and levels are to be fixed in the parts of Los Angeles front- Ing on the harbor as rapidly as the engineer's department can grind them out. The establishment of the curb ltn- and grades are necessary to carry out the city's plan of municipal harbor work as well as for the gen eral advantage of the city. Street grades for "Wilmington have been fixed so that building can go on and today the city engineer will pre sent ordinances to the city council fixing the gTades of thirteen streets In San Pedro. These streets are: Seventh, from Beacon to Palos Verdes; Sixteenth, from Gaffey to Georgia; Meyler, from Eighth to Thirteenth; Cabrillo ave nue, from Eighth to Sixteenth; Georgia, from Thirteenth to Sixteenth; Fifteenth, from Gaffey to Georgia; Fourteenth, from Gaffey to Georgia; Thirteenth, from Gaffey to Meyler; Twelfth, from Gaffey to Meyler; Elev enth, from Gaffey to Meyler; Tenth, from Gaffey to Meyler; Ninth, from Gaffey to Meyler, and Eighth., from Gaffey to Meyler. CITY ENGINEER OPPOSES CHANGE OF STREET NAME City Engineer Hamlin does not ap prove of the council's order to change the name of Gramercy place In what is known as tract 647 to Gamier place, and will ask the council today to re consider Its action. With this request he will submit a sketch showing the territory in ques tion, which Indicates that Gramercy place In tract 647 Is a continuation of Gramercy place as originally dedicated, which begins at Adams street and ex tends north to Temple street, a distance of three miles, except two blocks be tween San Marino and Eighth street. These two blocks are called Garnler place. A street east of tract 647 Is now called Gramercy place, but It Is not In alignment with other portions of the original Gramercy place. It is this out-of-plumb part of Gramercy place that Mr. Hamlin would have changed to Garnler and the two blocks that belong to Gramercy and that are called Gamier changed to Gramercy.

The rates reported by the commis sion are based on similar charges made at other seaport cities where rate regulation of this nature ls*uthorlzed by law. *' COUNCIL TO RETURN $653 TO OWNERS OF PROPERTY On the theory that "every little bit helps," the council will turn $635 into the fund for the opening of Budlong avenue and this will be pro rated among the persons who pair assess ments for the opening. The money was realized by the sale of a house on some land taken for the opening. But the people who had to pay the opening assessment paid much more than the sum realized In damages for this par ticular piece of property.

LUXURY IMPORTS SHOW BIG GAINS Receipts Into United States of Fine Things Largest in History WASHINGTON. Aug. 16.—The impor tation of luxuries Into the United States was larger in the fiscal year 1910 than in any earlier year in the history of our commerce. Figures prepared by the bureau of statistics of the depart ment of commerce and labor, covering the commerce of the full fiscal year, show the Importation of fully $250,000,000 worth of articles which may properly be classed as luxuries, that total ex ceeding by more than $25,000,000 the fig ures of the former high record year, 1907, and being actually more than double those of the year 1900, a decade ago. Diamonds, Jewerly, laces and em broideries, furs, feather*, beads and perfumery on the one hand, and cigars and tobacco, wlnus and liquors and au tomobiles on the other, are the princi pal articles forming the $250,000,000 worth of luxuries imported, though to then great groups must be added a third which Includes art works, deco rated china and bisque, musical instru ments, toy^ and orchids, palms, etc. Diamonds and laces run a close race with tobacco and liquors in popular favor, as measured by the value of their imports. The figures of the bu reau of statistics show the importation of $48,000,000 worth of diamonds and other precious stones in 1910, against $46,000,000 worth of laces and embroid eries, $37,000,000 worth of tobacco and cigars, and $23,000,000 worth of wines and liquors. Under the general group of "diamonds and other precious stones" diamonds formed a very large proportion of the total, a part of them coming in in the natural form to be cut and set in the United States, anoth er part cut but not set, the proportion sot before being sent to the United States being extremely small and in cluded under the general head of jew elry. The value of uncut diamonds entering the country in I'HO wai $10, --50,000; of diamonds cut but not Mt, $09 500 000; of other precious stones cut but not set, $7,750,000; and of Jewelry and other manufactures of gold and silver, $3,250,000. Taking the entire tout) of diamonds and other precioui stones, the total for 1910 is $47,750,000, against $42,500,000 in 1907 and $14,250,000 in 1900. LACKS AND EMBROIDERIES I^aces, embroideries, etc., as a whole gate in 1910 $46,000,000, against 549,500,000 in 1907 and $23,000,000 in 1900. This great group of laces, embroideries, etc., aggregating $46,000,000 in value in the fiscal year 1910, is chiefly composed of manufactures of cotton, but in part LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 17, 1910. of manufactures of silk, and in part of manufactures of vegetable fibers. Cot ton laces and embroideries alone aggre gated In 1910 $36,750,000, against $39, --750,000 in 1907 and $19,250,000 In 1900. Silk laces, etc.. In 1910 amounted to $5,330,000, against 6.750,000 In 1907 and $3,250,000 in 1900; and laces made from fibers amounted in 1910 to $3,750,000, against $3,000,000 in 1907 and $500,000 in 1900. Purs and fur skins show a total im portation in 1910 of over $26,500,000, against $22,00,000 in 1907 and $12,000,000 in 1900. Undressed furs and fur skins supply more than half of the imports of this group, their proportion in 1910 being $15,500,000, while dressed furs were imported to the value of $11,000,000. Wines, spirits and malt liquors im ported in 1910 aggregated $23,500,000, against $22,000,000 in 1907 and $12,750,000 in 1900. Of the 1910 Imports, wines rep resent a total value of $13,000,000, about equally djvided between champagne and still wines; distilled spirits, about $7,000,000, and malt liquors, $3,250,000. Art works show a total in 1910 of $21,000,000, against $1,000,000 in 1907 and $2,50,000 in 1900, this large increase in 1910 being chiefly due to the removal of the duty on art works twenty years old or over.

CHOLERA INCREASES IN DOMINION OF CZAR ST. PETERSBURG, Aug. 16.—The horrors of the cholera scourge in Rus sia, according to Prof. Peln of the Red Cross, who has been sent by the gov ernment to Southern Russia to study measures of combating the disease, are steadily increasing. Children are starv ing, in many Instances, because their parents and adult relatives have died, leaving them unsupported. There is no indication yet of the epi demic diminishing, and thousands of new cases are being registered daily, the official figures, according to re ports, understating the full extent of the disease.

BANK UNEASINESS CAUSED BY PANIC Alarm and Demoralization Follow in Path of Confidence , and Prosperity [Special to The Herald] CHICAGO, Aug. 16.—The uneasiness which existed in banking circles throughout the spring and summer of this year over the tight money condi tions that have been general in the we.st is a natural result of the object lesson afforded by the panic of 1907. The bankers have not forgotten how a situation of contldence and pros perity was suddenly changed to one of alarm and demoralization. One week the trade was good, labor was fully employed, manufacturers were loaded up with orders for months ahead, and the next week cash pay ments were suspended, trade was par alyzed, orders were being canceled,' enterprises abandoned and men thrown out of employment by tens of thou sands. All of this demoralization came about because certain develop ments of local significance in New York city started a run on a few banks there. Nowhere else in the country were depositors alarmed. The greater part of the mischief done was caused by precautionary action which the banks - themselves were impelled to take. The natural impulse of each bank to Increase its own cash hold ings was enough to break down the system. The fundamental weakness of the banking situation in the United States is in the lack of a central reserve fund, outside of the competitive banking circle. There is an inevitable ten dency In this country for the banks to expand close up to the limit of their legal reserves. In no other coun try is competition in the banking busi ness so absolutely free and uncon trolled. In the United Kingdom at the close of last year there were only 171 banking corporations, with about 8000 branches, and in all other im portant countries the business is in the hands of a comparatively few cor porations, with numerous branches. As the head offices of these corpora tions are usually grouped In a few cities and In close communication with each other, it is apparent that a com mon policy is mofe easily maintained that in the United States, with its 25,000 independent banks. NO CHANGE ADVOCATED Nobody is advocating a change to the branch bank system in this coun try, but it is apparent that along with the advantage* of our system of in dependent local banks there are cer tain perils to be guarded against. An excess of competition is one of them, and one of its evil results ia overex- pansion in every period of prosperity. The country bankers criticise the city bankers for lending money to pro mote speculation In stocks and the city bankers criticise the country bankers for lending money to pro mote speculation in lands. The truth is that when a responsible customer whose account is valuable wants an accommodation he is likely to get it, tn the city or country, and if he fails he is disposed to look up a new bank ing connection. There is no help for this situation but in one way, and that is by es tablishing a central reserve fund suf ficient to back up the individual banks when an extraordinary demand comes. This is the resource which protects all other important countries of the world from money panics. In no other im portant country do the banks other than the central institution carry oven as much cash as the individual banks of the United States are re quired to carry. They depend upon redlscounting paper at the central bank. • When a committee of the United States monetary commission, which is now deliberating upon this subject, was in Paris last year it had an in terview with Baron Brineard of the Credit Lyonnais, an institution with approximately $300,000,000 of deposits, when the following questions and an swers occurred: "Q. —Is it customary for you to carry quite a large amount of cash in your vaults?" AMOUNT OF CASH STABI-E "A.—Every day the amount of cash which is to be kept here in our. vaults is fixed according to the payments to be made during the day. Sometimes our holdings are greatly in excess of our forecast for disbursements. This happens when we do not find ready uso for amounts available." "Q —You would not carry a larger amount of cash in vault than required by your daily needs in order that it may serve as a par.t of your reserve?" "A. —There is no legal requirement for a reserve in cash; the bank is quite free to keep the amount of cash that it judges necessary. It is the practi cal business experience of many years which indicates how much cash is needed for the day." "Q.—So the cash in hand is merely carried for the necessities of busi ness?" "A. Yes; this is the point on which the French situation is quite different from the American, because in France bankers are free to have In their vaults any amount of cash they like. In France we have the Bank of France, which regulates the currency of the whole country, and any bank, If it has need for additional cash, may present for rediscount at the Bank of France the bills and other commercial paper which it has in its vaults. The amount wo carry in the Bank of France may vary greatly, according to circum stances. It Is not to our advantage to have too largo a sum at the bank, be cause the Hank of France does not allow any Interest." "Q. What per cent of your deposits; do you intend to carry in cash, either in your own vaults or in other banks?" "A. Eight to 10 per cent on the av erage. The excess of deposits is in- vested almost entirely in commercial paper, available for discount with the Bank of France at any moment and In 'reports' (loans on securities from one stock exchange settlement to an other)." "Q. You have nearly 10 per cent in this statement?" "A. That is perhaps more than we need. It is a matter of practical ex perience. There is no legal propor tion." In the interview with M. Ullman, director of the Comptoir d'Escompte, another great French Institution, the following colloquy occurred: "Q. Is thfs Bank of France your principal reliance in case you need money? Do you think it necessary to carry any additional reserve?" "A. Under our French system we consider the commercial paper we keep in the portfolio a cash reserve, as we can rediscount it at the Bank of France. We know the Bank of France will discount these bills and thus en able us to convert the bills instantly Into cash; this is the basis of the French banking system." In the interview held by the mon etary commission with Herr Paul Miinkeiwith, director of the Deutsche bank in Berlin, he said: "The great strength of our financial system in Germany Is the Relchsbank. Under that system the question of our own cash reserve is of secondary im portance, as we can at all times con vert our holdings of commercial paper into cash at the Iteiehsbank. I may mention that of the prime commercial bills we are carrying, from $1500.000 to $2,000,000 fall due each day; for these we get cash or credit at the Relchs bank at maturity. It is our usual prac tice to keep in vaults and banks a considerable amount of cash, often more than 10 per cent, and sometimes less, perhaps 8 per cent." TOSSES BODY ON LAWN AFTER AUTO KILLS BABE Driver Endeavors to Conceal Fact Machine Caused Death MATTEAWAN, N. Aug. 16.—The pollen here are hunting for some clew to the identity of an automobilist whom they charge with killing the 3-year-old son of George Verdi, a well to-do farmer. The child was playing by the road side when the automobile whizzed by. A projecting bolt caught his clothing and he was dragged beneath the wheels and killed Instantly. According to the police, the driver stopped the car, picked up the baby's body and threw It over a fence on to a lawn beside the road. Persons in a cross street too far away to identify the automobilist saw him stop his machine, pick up something from the road and toil it aside. They thought it was a trilling obstruction of some kind and paid no attention. A few minutes later the baby's body was found on the lawn. 'NEWSIES' TO HAVE MODEL CLUBHOUSE Four Hundred Omaha Boys Will Be Aided by City Phil anthropists OM^HA, Neb., Aug. 16.—How to keep the 400 newsboys of this city from shooting craps, swearing, smoking and forgetting to wash their hands ard faces at proper Intervals i 9 a prob'em that has agitated the members of tho Children's Home society for many a month. At last It is believed that a solution has been reached. An organi zation for the welfare of the news boys started eight years ago fell through, and since then the youngsters have been permitted to Just grow up and run wild. Now they are to bo taken in hand and their condition bet tered. Probation Officer Bernstein has in terested a number of the business men of the city and a club has been organ ized, with E. W. Dlckson, capitalist; Rome Miller, proprietor of the larsest hotel in the city; J. M. Cudahy. a packer; Rev. Father Burns, a pastor who has always interested himself In boys, and Judge Sutton of the Juvenile court, as trustees. The committee hav ing immediate charge of the welfare of the boys Is made up of Joe Carroll, Tony Costonzo, Tony Monico and Sum Kalln, all of whom were once news boys, but who arc now prosperous business men of the city. The following rules have been adopted by the two committees to gov ern the actions of the boys: No smoking, chewing, gambling or jumping on street cars. Must have clean faces and hands. No going into saloons. Must be loyal to another. Must be off the streets at 8 o'clock at night unless an extra is out. No boy under eight years of age shall sell papers. No foul or profane language. A large room has been rented near the business portion of the city. It bas been equipped with a small library, tables on which games of many klnda can be played, tubs and shower baths. The club will be self governed and offi cered by the boys, but over- its affairs the committee of business men will have general supervision, they feeling that they should have this control, as they are supplying the finances for Its maintenance. • It will cost the boys nothing to join the club. Each member is given a numbered badge for Identification and as a certificate of character. If a com plaint Is filed against any boy, or if uny boy becomes troublesome, a re port 1b made to the juvenile court, when Judge Button will investigate and take the necessary action.
