SEND THE SMALL SUMS WHIUR the fund for the relief of the families of the Times' dead has been steadily mounting t'> Rood proportions it should he remem bered that more thnn ■ score of homes have been bereft by the assassins' deed and a lßrcrer Bttta will be needed than has yet been secured to give to each the relief that a rich and pros perous city like Ijos Angeles ought to extend Divided amnnn all the living victims, the fund at present in hand will be scarcely more than enough to tide them over present emergencies. Surely the people of 1..0S Angeles who live In comfort and have been spared the dire experiences of crushing prrief and want combined mean to do more than that. Subtracting the larpe sums given to the fund, it is seen that the general response hns not been as larpe as it should be. There ought to bo thousands instead of scores of con tril utors In a city as large and pros perous ns this. It is quite probable that many who cannot give large sums have been with holding their offerings in the belief that what they can offer will not be of material nid to the fund. To such The Herald wants to make it clenr that their co-operation is just what It asks more than anything else. While The Tli raid is not personally soliciting sub scriptions, it is glad to be a medium of such offerings to this charity. It will gladly receive the (rifts of mil lionaires, but would rather turn over $1000 in dollars and dimes than in large sums. The newsboy who gave a dollar of his savings to The Herald fund typified the kind for whose sympathies this paper is particularly glad to be the medium. Let those, therefore, who have hesitated to send in small sums be assured that their offerings will be as ncceptable as the largest and do as much to remove the stigma of the most tragic misfortune that ever befell Southern California. MYSTERY EXPLAINED READERS of The Herald, and es pecially Democrats, were amazed yesterday to find the following paragraph printed as what is known in newspaper parlance as a "filler" on page 12: The "insurgency" movement is not going to hurt the Republican party. It will help it. rather. It will result in a much lie di d cleansing and an awakening along lines that needed new Ideas and new blood. It will also, in the end, get rid of some undesirables, who will go to the Democratic party, where they ■belong. For this amazing utterance and its appearance in The Herald we are in- j debted to our unfortunate morning contemporary, the Times, to which j newspaper the hospitality of The Her- i aid has been extended since the ex- \ plosion destroyed the plant of the \ former. The result has been more or i less confusion in the crowded compos- Ing room of The Herald. The foregoing paragraph, which was the conclusion of a political speech' of an Insurgent candidate, had been re moved from a "galley" of type and in the confusion, instead of being thrown away, Inadvertently was placed on an other "galley" containing brief articles wKlch are kepi In newspaper offices for emergency papers and are tech nically known as "fillers." We hasten to repudiate the senti ment expressed In the above para graph and must crave indulgence for ! any mistakes of a similar nature that ! may occur while The Herald force is endeavoring to enable our contem porary to rehabilitate Itself und at the same time assist the Times to con tinue daily publication with*as little interruption and inconvenience to its patrons as possible. IN THE SPOTLIGHT SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA lias been occupying a place very near tho center of the world's stage during the past fortnight. The horrors of the Times disaster had hardly ceased to h.;!d prime place in the columns of the newspapers and give us the most un ibfe publicity we have ever suf feri i when red revolution began to re volve in Portugal around Henry T. Gage of this city, tho United States minister to that country. As Mr. Gage :■ ■■! the dire n>'us from home and then " to see ;i dynasty tumbling around him he might have been par doned for wondi ring if the foundations were being kicked out from under things everywhere. Next came celebrity of a pleasanter Bort. Walter Bro'jkins, a former Los ci boy, who has come to be looked on a iler American aviator, es hed a new world's record for en durance flights by his trip from Chi to Springfield. Now that record ■ en superseded by another, made by Arch Hoxsy, a former Pasadenan, who flew from Hprlngfleld, 111., to Clay ' Co., taking the worlds honors for lined flight a distance of 104 miles. The science of aviation owes much to these da intlesa young men and South ern California is proud of them. Both of !!.•■ aviators are in the serv ice of the Wrlglits, and this is as good a place as an; ■ . that while the Dayton inventors of the aeroplane let others have a clear field for fancy fly ing and bpectaoular "stunts," they come alonu regularly with the perform ances that ari establishing the air motor as a prai tloal, serious device of tiie future.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 11, 1910. PARTY LINES DISSOLVING THIXOt* are not looking very bright in the camp of Jnlin D. Freder icks, the Republican candidate for re-electioin to the office of district attorney. Following- the defection of Mr. S. C. Graham from the Republican county committee because he could not square hia conscience with party regularity, with the discredited and disgraced county attorney on the ticket, came the withdrawal of Mr. Charles H. McClure from the commit tee for the same reason. Now the Los Angeles Express bolts Fredericks, pointing out his gross dereliction of duty, and announces its purpose to support Thomas L,ee Wool- Wine. Evidently it thinks that an offi cer who can't find tim" to meet charges, not only of failure to do his plain duty but of actual felony, is not entitled to the consideration of candid people, or, for that matter, the sup port or association of honest people. Mr. Fredericks makes no adequate <l< fense agafnst the charge of having shielded, not once, but many times, persons guilty of serious crimes. Walter Parker stands accused of hav ing attempted to corrupt City Clerk Lelande In the Hotel Alexandria by bribery in order to put through the <-teal of the river bed for corporations. Fredericks did nothing about It. In stead, he has made Parker his boon companion, confidant and adviser. Percy Hammon was Involved in the same river bed scandal, Fredericks made no attempt to bring him to jus tlce, Instead, lie made Hammon an assistant at liberal salary in his office. Lucy King forged a will. Freder icks, sworn to prosecute crime, and knowing of this crime, did nothing about it. Instead, he made use of the opportunity afforded by the forged King wills to profit personally to the extent of about $12,000, and by meth ods that were closely akin to the be trayal of confiding clients, according to Mr. Woolwine'a charges. These are only a few of many charges which the district attorney refuses to meet with anything more than a statement of generalities that Thomas Lee Woolwine, his accuser, in stantly refuted with sworn and docu mentary evidence The only Inference Is that he cannot do so. His negative record Is known to all who have watched the conduct of his office, even superficially, i lis positive bad record seems established beyond a reasonable doubt, and appears to be confirmed •'> his silence under charges that would stir men of character to tlieir depths. In the circumstance it is straining party regularity beyond the limit to expect men like Mr. Graham and Mr. Mediae and newspapers like the Ex press to support Fredericks, much less to take up a defense for him thnt ho will not undertake for himself. The action of these members of the Republican county committee and this Republican newspaper, as well as some thousands of others whose minds are made up the name way but are not publicly avowed, is new proof of the breaking down of party lines in city and county affairs. Already the complete emancipation of the city from the political boss has been achieved in Los Angeles. There are exactly the same weighty reasons for divorcing county business from party politics. When a notoriously bad man is In office or seeks to get Into office it in a moral and patriotic duty to put him out or keep him out, as tho case may be, and no party shibboleth should blind a Rood citizen or a Run,] party to that duty. It has ceased t'j blind thousands, and as time goes on It will have still less influence with voters. The defection from the ranks of Re publican leaders is not ;i matter for party rejoicing, but for public re joicinß. It marks the beginning of a movement that is going to deliver Loh Angeles county, and in turn every other county in California, from the control of professional politicians, and substitute in its place a business gov ernment for tho benefit of all the pi - ipli Only a Dream Far and Wide TREBPABS IN THE AIR Perhaps the t'.rst case in record of trespass in the air is thru of Herr Frey, who was fined 2u marks for fly nig: over Berlin v.-ithout a permit; if. indeed, there are any arrangements for authorising flights. The technical charge, was that the aviator Imperiled the public safety on the presumption that the science, of aviation is not so well advanced as to warrant flights over thickly populated areas. The Ber liner.-?, who were enthusiastic over the exploit, may remonstrate that they could cheerfully take the risk If the aviator were minded to. — Providence (R. I.) Journal.

Professor Lowe on the Exposition 'letter in the Fan Francisco Chronicle) Editor Chronicle—Sir: The writer, an ardent Southern Callfornlan, liad the opportunity of witnessing for five consecutive hours the great parade in Son Francisco during the celebra tion of Admission day. I cannot conceive how any one could look upon this parade, with its wall ot intelligent, orderly citizens on either side of the streets, extending five miles, willing to stand for thut long period of time, as interested as were the paraders themselves, and not feel that above all places In this whole L'nited dtates Han Francisco is the proper one for holding the great world's fair of 1916. The people arc not only enthusiastic and patriotic, but have the ability above all sections of the country to make such an exposition a greater success than any other world's fair ever hel.'. They have not only taken the laboring oar upon themselves but are working f^r all purts of the state, and especially WIU it benefit Southern California in greater proportion than any other section. While the pittance that other parts of the state will sustain in proportion to the voluntary tax upon themselves is bo very small in proportion to the benefits there should not be a single vote against the method now outlined for raising the balance of the capital necessary to make a most com plete success for the whole state, as well as the west and Pacific coast in gent-ral. The continually growing prosperity of this state between now anrl the time for the great exposition will make the .■nirns appropriated appear much small er than they dn today. While all the coast will be visited by the millions of people v.-ho will attend the exposition, It can be depended upon that every one will visit Southern California and spend a great deal of time and money there, and where there will be more attractions and more to see than in any other section except the exposition Itself. The great orange groves and olive Orchards, both the largest in the world, nnd California is the only state' in the Union where olives are grown, will form one of the great attractions, while its interurban railway system, with the most elegant car service and finest roadbeds, is more extensive than any other that can be found in tho world (thanks to Henry R. Huntington, who had the foi-fHhousht and enter prise tfi carry through the Stupendous undertaking, now acknowledged the B^eatest single-handed electric railway builder), and which ables th« visitor to travel in all directions for 100 m>l'S around the great city of Los Angeles, thus making it easy and Inexpensive to visit every section of" Southern Cali fornia, and will still further be ex tended between now and the time the exposition opens. In addition to this, new railways will enter California, one from the south and at least two eastern railways are now contemplated and perhaps more, thus enabling tho great mas 3of east- European Lemon Market (Consular Report) Regarding citrus fruits, the earth quake of 1908, which destroyed entire ly the city of Messina, did not produce great damage to the lemon crop or groves. However, few of the fruit shippers at Messina survived, and the packing houses there were all de stroyed. Consequently the fruit is now purchased by shippers established at Palermo and Catania. On account of storms in Sicily last winter and spring, by which many (lower buds were destroyed, the pro duction of lemons this year was prob ably one-third less than that of the (.receding several years. The quality, however, is good. Only a limited quan tity of lemons remained in August for export, and probably none will bo ex- em i puple to bo comfortably accom modated. 'l'lic Yosemlte valloy and Mariposa bis trie grove will be made accessible to visitors by rail, both summer ami winter. Railway facilities will also be enlarged for accommodating visitors to the Grand canyon. Among the various other great attractions will be I the fully extended Mount Lowe rail way, which has been one of the great est advertisements of Southern Cali fornia and will be still more so when the road is extended to the summit of Mount Lowe and the new fireproof ob servatory built there to contain the Instrument!. The lamest searchlight in the world will cap one of the higher peak* which will at night light all the incoming and outgoing trains and throw its rays for 100 miles around. It is believed that this road will also he extended to the great Carnegie ob servatory on Mount Wilson, which Is already one of the most extensive in stitutions of its kind and will be con tinually added to. The early work of the Lowe observa tory under Dr. Louis Swift, who dls j covered over 300 nebulae and seven new I comets, so attracted the attention of j the astronomers of the world that ; many medals of honor were bestowed I upon Dr. Swift and the institution. It I was to this early work that Southern i California Is indebted for the estnbllsh i ment ot the Carnegie observatory un der the management of one of the most able astronomer! of the world. I These two observatories operate on | entirely different lines, and, therefpre, one does not duplicate the work of the other. The last observatory does high ly scientific work where the public can not be admitted generally without In terfering with its operations, while the Lowe observatory, with its astronomi cal instrument which Alvin Clark de clared was the finest he had ever made, will be supplemented by at least nix smaller instruments more suited for the use of laymen and which will admit of ;i half dozen lines of spectators where they cannot only see but have fully explained what they see and where to look for interesting heavenly bodies, making this observatory an educatlon ui feature of the people generally. With all the attractions named above together with the exposition, it is not strange that all who can reach Cali fornia will he here on that occasion. This whole country wants to see and know more of California. Not only this country, but many other countries are interested in this great state, which is proving the marvel of the world. The United States government and, of course, the people who want to visit California more thnn any other spot, are more Interested in encouraging this great exposition than any other sec tion of the country. There is not a single city where one hundredth part of the attractions can be found to in terest people, outside of the exposition itself; therefore the talk of New Orl j enns, or any other eastern or western city, would be mere folly. 1 T.

A BARKING DOG Editor Herald: There is a small dog with a largo voice, who rarely misses a nlKht that ho does not exorcise It nt the cost of the neighbors living In tho vicinity of Moneta and Thirty fourth street. I, for one, have lain awako in my bed waiting for the fa miliar bark to ceaso bo that I could go to sleep and get my necessary night's rest.

Los Angeles is one of the most important cities on the entire national coast line from a mili tary and commercial point of view. It should bo made secure against at tack, though war be ever so remote. This can be easily accomplished by the creation of an infantry post here in (support of the proposed batteries. Let a united press and a united citizen body demand that this be done, lhe federal government has given but ■cant recognition to the military and naval necessities of this coast, and it is time that a concerted fight was made on this apathetic attitude. Lei The Herald, a leader. l^ B °« kTON< Los Angeles, Cal. WOMEN DEFENDED Editor Herald: Your Edendalo cor respondent, referring to the "Green tragedy," betrays gross ignorance of the true state of women and will no doubt be eet aright by the sex he slanders. He makes this general ac cusation: "A woman can love her husband truly notwithstanding the fact that she may have one or two lovers. ' He who can pen such arrant false hood* is totally In the dark as to the inherent chaste qualities with which Divine Providence has endowed the fe malo sex. Every true woman loves but one man. She cannot act contrary to the true womanly instincts which is to make a home anil raise offspring to the only one she loves. The possibility of such a stato In women contemplated by W. F. Hawklnson evinces a low and degrading morality which every right minded man and woman must condemn. Alexander Dumas flls in a public controversy of a similar case in France said this: "A married woman who sets up flirtations with other men of an adulterous nature is but 'la quenon' (strumpet). Kill her. Chastity consists in the love of one woman for one man, the father of her children. c- F. Los Angeles, Cal. *i ,!■—a*— ' NEED FOR SHARP EYES Editor Herald:ln your issue of today is a statement of the case of a friend less lad and what hapened to him he calse he was poor and friendless. Not having the money to put up at the Lankershlm and not knowing about a possible shelter at the Salvation Army or at Bethlehem, he actually climbed into a box car to sleep, and for this heinous crime he was promptly arrested and jailed by one of our ever vigilant police, and then left in a Jail cell twenty-eight days without a hearing. Your reporter does not say, but I sup pose they must have given him some thing to eat. He does say that a sharp-eyed matron found him at last and brought about his release. I wouldn't have thought of calling her sharp-eyed after her taking twenty eight days to find him, but maybe she was. Perhaps the cell was in a dark corner somewhere! But, say, what the matter with us, anyway? Axe we short of common sense or common hu manity, or both? I suggest It might be a good idea for The Herald to send around a "sharp-eyed" reporter quite often to look after such things. There might be some more little boys, or even men. tangled up in idiotic red tape. Don't you think so? I feel out of patience with the press sometimes for its prying Idle gossip about citizens' private affairs, but In matters pertain ing to public welfare and in running public business we need constantly the light that only the honest, Independent press can give. I believe The Herald to be that kind of a paper, and I am not a Democrat, either, though I vote for individual Democrats qften, and in tend to next time! W. B. C. Los Angeles, Cal. 'TOM' PAINE DEFENDED Editor Herald: Perhaps I may be allowed to dot the i's and crow the t's of Peter Dale's letter where he deals with Roosevelt, the historian. Truly the latter did reverse the order of things by all accepted standards. When, in his "Life of Gouvefneur Mor ris," he glorified that envious, self seeking and treacherous person, while he vilified the truly great, wise and over self-sacrificing Thomas Paine. JPaine, the author of American Inde "•nilcnce, the man who educated V/aahlngton, Franklin, Jefferson and the rest up to the first idea of separa tion; Paine, founder of the republic of which Roosevelt later became an "accidental" president; Paino who in vented that grand auxiliary to human progress, the Iron bridge; who was Joint inventor with Fulton and Henry of the steamboat; Paine who wrote the immortal "Common Senso" and "Crisis" papers which more than any thing elre achieved the revolution. The man who, thoufeh poor, gave his writ ings (which would have made him vastly rich) to help the cause of free dom; who incurred outlawry by the British - jernment, and the loss of his patents and all other rights for the cause of precious—but, alas! ungrate ful— hainan liberty. This was the man: author, statesman, brave soldier who yet hated war, philosopher whose tender heart was concerned for dumb creatures as well »» for humans, who .honored women and championed childhood, who anticipated Lincoln, Garrison and all other great liberators, as c advocate of slave emancipation, even as he anticipated the whole school of modern humanitarian writ ers on almost every theme of public weal and policy—land nationalization included. This was the man whom Roosevelt has called a "dirty little atheist." When the American constitution "was amaklnf?, Paine had—and avowed—his misgivings lest the evils of royalty misht tend to survive in a presidency. For> nns it is this century-old forecast of Pnlm"s that has earned him Roose velt's dislike. It certainly hits Teddy "where he lives." WILLOUGHBY SMART.
