The bankers' ball at the Fhrlners' auditorium Tuesday evening was the "principal" event of "interest" on a lively day. A pretty woman comes forward for the Lorimer defense. You enn't lose 'em. Sift any case down far enough and a woman will be found in it. It Is now Governor Hokesmith in Georgia, and the jokesmiths will be sure to take advantage of their oppor tunities for the next couple of years. Judge McCormick's injunction against the garbage reloading station takes away from Anderson street the distinction of being the "road of a thousand odors." Now a local man charges the South ern Pacific with cutting < tt his har bor frontage. It is hard to find any body in California the S. P. hasn't done something to. Walter Wellman is again "preparing" for his ocean balloon trip; and, It may be added, Xicola Tesla is still working on those electrical wonders announced In 1896 for early use. The chamber of commerce wants 200 more policemen, but if "it takes nine tailors to make a man" there wouldn't be enough of them loft for a while to make the clothes for the rest of us. Postmaster General Hitchcock con strues the postal savings bank law passed by congress to mean that It shall be put into operation when he gets good and ready, and not before. A woman whose life was save.l by a New York patrolman kisserl him as a reward. It seems impossible to keep graft out of the department If they don't get It in one form they will in another. A live wire on a washing machlm In Brigham City, Utah, shocked a man to Seatb. Men cannot be too careful in doing tho family wash not to adopt new-fangled d> th which they tre unfamiliar.

A DYNASTY'S FALL TO THOSE who have followed af fairs in Portugal, even casually, the fnii of the Braganza dynasty is no surprise. On top of other causes that had heen lonp filling tho body politic full of fßlterlng sores was tlio personal unpopularity ot the former kinp, Carlos, who WM assassinated in 1908, and whom his subjects referred to os the "fat hog;" of the boy king Manuel, who succeeded him, and the entire, royal family. The fabric of the dyna.'ity had been held together for a long time only by the power of pelf— the persistent determination of the royals and nobles to live in luxury as of old from the oarnings of the poorer classes. It was only R matter of time before such a fabric should rip in Its weak seams. Anarchy thrived on tho dis content caused by the profligacy and corruption of the idle rich, whose patriotism was limited to a desire to perpetuate their privileges. How far the revolutionary societies extended among the populace Is evident from the sedition in the army and navy. The clerical question, as in Spain and France, added Its share to the boiling pot. Like tho Spanish, the Portuguese are a once virile race gone.pretty much to seed. Their very virtues led to their downfall. From the time Columbus set sail from Isabella's court to find a new land of fabulous gold deposits, and even before, the spirit of adven ture seized upon the people. Success crowned many of th"c voyages. Flotil las of ships returned with precious cargoes and news of dependencies an nexed. Like Spain, Portugal came to see prosperity in gold and colonies to exploit instead of in honest labor and the cultivation of the land. * Both countries thrived for n long time from the influx of easy wealth, but it played ha^'oc with the national < character. Only* now, when misfor- | tune has piled up to their undoing, are they reawakening to the fact that a prosperity based on anything but hon est work, invention and proficiency In the arts is fictitious. For the Portu- j guese dynasty it is too late; for Por tugal, the real Portugal, and for the real Spain, perhaps not. The peculiar Latin temperament, made what it is in this generation by the circumstances here recited, does not give much hope of anything ap proaching Anglo-German standards for v long while. It remains to be seen whether enough stamina is left in the Portuguese character to work out its slow salvation. • • Local Interest in the fall of the dynasty is sharpened by the fact that the United States minister in Lisbon is Henry T. Gage of Los Angeles. He is to be congratulated on Wednesday's coup d'etat. As minister of a new , and ambitious republic he can be of far more service than as a formal agent of our interests in an effete and dying monarchy. HIS SWORN DUTIES IN HIS first expose of county mal administration Thomas l.cc Wool wine showed how the district at torney's office has been and Is bound up In city corruption—the influence of Walter Parker, the Southern Pacific boss, over Captain Fredericks, the con nection between the attempted bribery of City Clerk Lelande in the Hotel Al exandria by Packer; the suppression of prosecutions of this and other crimes; the partnership between the district attorney's office and social vi( c in the city resulting In the collection of protection money from fallen women, and all the other sickening incidents, every one a scandal, connected with these things. In his second speech on Wednesday evening Mr. Woolwine showed how the district attorney's office is mixed up in the malfeasance (and perhaps worse) of the notoriaus Solid Throe of the board of supervisors. It was Freder icks' duty to prevent the secret sale of good roads bonds at a loss of about $4U0.000 to the taxpayers, but he didn't do it. It was left for private initiative, warned by George Alexander, to do it. But Fredericks is sworn to look out for just such things, and he knew what uas going on. It was Fredericks' duty to look into the more recent furniture deal wherein the award was given to a bid upproxi , (100,000 the highest. It has been his sworn duty to be vigilant and Bee that Tvs Eldridge did not spend county money to benefit his own real estate holdings at a time when money could not be found, according to Eldridge, to koep in repair important highways that disintegrating. It was his duty, as the attorney for the people, to see that Los Angeles should not have the worst county government in California. Jt m true, as Mr. Woolwino says— ter Influence in the county, from Walter Parker to 'iuss EUdridge, up or down, is .for the ri -election of ks.

That the deed whs so un-American as to preclude belief that it could be done by one who has lived for any length of time under the influence of our Institution! makes the suspicion of foreign influence plausible. But that an elaborate plot, eharac | by Satanic craft, existed does not longer seem to admit of any doubt. That the guilty are anarchistic is pos itive Their act proclaims it. That they are Insane is true t.> the extent that such deviltry could not be har bored and put into effect by normal minds; but it is not a form of mental an be pleaded us defense or palliation. That the secrets of the plotted crime were known to few is as certain as anything humanly reasoned out can be. No criminals as crafty as these are shown to have been ever committed the monumental folly of intrusting their plans to others than themselves. .Such a course would mean absolute certainty 01 expo ure, for there is no considerable body of men on the faco of the earth that could hold within their breasts the knowledge even long enough for the liends to escape, or even .to let them carry out their plot.

A HORRIBLE BUSINESS THE shocking death of Eva Swan In San Frani Isco, who, after being killed in an Illegal "i ''ration by a medical ghoul, had her legs rut off at the ankles by the .same Dr. "Grant" (or Thompson), who then thrust her body Into a trunk and later burled it to hide his crime, haa revived discussion of tho maibllity of newspapers through whose advertising columns these hu man sharks reach their victims.

COMMON SENSE. Los Angeles, Cal.

Still our national this has been In - dellbly stained by the assassination of three presidents, a few governors, a few mayors, ;i few policemen at the Haymarket rioti m Chicago and twen ty-one Innocenl tollers in the Times building In our own fair city. And the b foul acts destroyed with one blow the power of the majority, for one man's hand struck down tho will of the whole nation. The fact Is self-evident that a re course i" the dagger, th<? bullet or the bomb of the assawin is destructive to every principle of .i government found ed on popular suffrage. And the assassination of the fore going people la appalling. It strikes to the very base of our fabric and ex cites the tiuc-atiun m foruigu countries forßft tho "Mussol slough war" of tho olirhtles. and for that and similar In iquities the Southern Pacific company is now reaping tho harvest which comes from the universal execration in which it was held. In fact, It Is to the oppression, cor ruption and braaen defiance of law and equity of tho BoutherU Pacific and other groat corporations that tho pres ent unrest of the people is due They are reaping that which they ■owed, and the harvest is abundant beyond all measure. However, we may deprocate tho ex cesses of popular passion, however we may i despise the demagogue* who arouse it and live by it, however we may realize that Its worsl effects will bo unon tho people themselves, the tact remains that it is only the natura ■':;„! of tho long career of unchecked infamy of the corporations themselves of which none have been more corrupt and oppressive than our own Southern Pacific company. there are no equities For this reason there are no equities of that company to be regarded.

CITIZEN. Los Angeles, Cal. MASCULINE AND FEMININE Editor Herald: The tragedy of an enraged husband killing his wife's paramour, who from tho evidence loved this woman with a passion which withstood the grim ravages of thlrty three yearn, calls forth a strange and peculiar phase in tho general makeup of women's character. It proves that there is an unbrldgable gulf be tween the sexrs; two separate worlds, one In which lives and moves the powerful masculine mind, the other the subtle feminine. So strangely ia the feminine mind constituted as com pare,! with the masculine that oddly enough a woman can love her husband an truly from her Idea of truth and honor —notwithstanding tho fact that she may have, one or two lovers —as the day when she swore her troth to him. It would seem that women In tin glorious momenta Of true love as ch nd in a storm of ecstasy to the vory heights of supreme love, plant there on the golden banner of their inspira tions, and then are satisfied to descend, and apparently find consolation and atonement in Razing up at the heights, and In their own mind feel they were up there, and their bannerw arc still waving, although unseen by tho masculine.
