TO THE VOTERS OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY Tin: HERALD publishes this morn ing and will continue to publish until after tho election the Demo cratic state and county tickets, ex cept that for the Democratic Judiciary ticket we publish the non-partisan ju diciary ticket nominated by the Good Government organization We wish fill of our readers would carefully scan the ticket as presented, name by name. If they do 80,- we are sure they will find it in every way worthy of their support at the polls on November 8. There is not a man on the ticket who is not of excellent Character and not one who is In any way smirched with the stain of the Southern Pacific ma chine. After all, tho elimination of tin- Southern Pacific machine from both State and county politics is the great business before the voters of the state of California for this year. The fact that the Democratic party was com pletely freed from the dominance of the Southern Pacific machine two years apo is responsible for the further 1.1. t that at this election the party is able for the first time since there has been a Southern Pacific machine to present a ticket to the voters of Cal ifornia entirely free from machine in fluence. Such a thing as a state and county ticket of one of the dominant parties whose candidates are entirely free from any affiliation with tho Southern Pacific machine has not been known before In this state since that machine existed. While many of our Republican friends used their utmost efforts to redeem their party from the reproach of the machine at the primaries, and succeeded in nominating a number of candidates who are anti-machine men, yet some of the old machine crowd succeeded In getting through the pri maries and their names are now pre sented on the Republican ticket. That this reproach does not attach to the Democratic ticket is, in the judgment of the Herald, the highest recom mendation for that ticket. And when upon investigation the ticket is found to contain the names of men of known honesty and integrity, in whose hands the administration of the affairs of the state and county can be safely trusted, it would appear that it should appeal very strongly for the suffrages of all honest voters. THE NON-PARTISAN JUDI CIARY TICKET THE HERALD this morning pub lishes and presents for the suf frages of its readers the non-par tisan judiciary ticket nominated by the Good Government organization of the county of Los Angeles. We have elei ted to support this ticket because we have at all times announced our selves as in favor of a non-partisan Judiciary, and we know of no better time for making this announcement ef fective than the present. This ticket was nominated by the Good Government organization of the county of Los Angeles, which Is strict ly and absolutely non-partisan in its politics. It is composed of both Re publicans and Democrats, and by its principles it recognizes one and only one qualification in candidates for of fice, and that is personal fitness. The ( (ood Government organization in nom inal iiik the judiciary ticket presented by The Herald endeavored to apply that standard to its nominees. While some Democratic candidates like Judge McNutt and Mr. Long, for superior Judge, an> not included in this list, such failure to include them is no re flection upon these gentlemen person ally. Neither must the failure of The Herald to include them in its ticket be taken as any reflection upon them. They are both men of sterling char acter and good ability. At the same time, the men who were selected by the Good Government organization showed the same qualifications, and, inasmuch as their selection was upon a strictly non-partisan basis and by a strictly non-partisan body, The Her ald has accepted the nominees of the Good Government organization as be ing the first expression of non-par- Bhip in the judiciary which this county has seen. Professing as The Herald does to believe in a non-par tisan judiciary, it must, to be con sistent, support these nominees, and The Herald is particularly glad to support this ticket because of the very excellent material of which it consists. Prom the two candidates for justice of the supreme court to the candidates for police judge of Los An clty, every member of it is a man of tried Integrity and of excellent ability. And every one of them Is known for his absolute freedom from all machine influence of every kind. 'HECKLING" BECAUSE Frederick C. Schiffman, of the prominent citizens of !. asked a perfectly proper question of Captain John D. ricks, the district . attorney threatens him with arrest and all but • ariics out his threat.

Jie displayed a side of hara tor that nobody had yet ■ ' attention to—a side that ought Idered in the choice of a man to entrust with great power. Mr. Schiffman was entirely within his rights, and was moreover within d taste and decorum. He \ rowdy trying to break up a meeting, but was to be presumed in all fairness a voter .-''king light. If Fredericks had had a convincing answer he could have s dis armed his Inquisitor and probably won sympathy am : by it.

If he should lose his temper and act boorish he would be hooted from the plat form. The Englishman takes his politics very seriously, but when a campaign is ended he knows just where a can didate stands on questions, because he and others have made the office seeker tell from the platform all about his past record and future purposes. No man with a good cause and good record need fear heckling, but it is conceivable that the other kind might. Our compliments to the pioneer heckler of Glendora. May his tribe increase. WHAT'S THE ANSWER? SAD notes occasionally penetrate through the hum of a busy city. Carl Berger writes to The Herald that after four weeks' futile search for work he is facing starvation with a Wife in a consumption hospital at Den ver and a year-old baby in his keeping here. He is sober, able-bodied and for any kind of employment. A "discouraged woman" writes a similar hopeless letter. At a public meeting in Cooper Union in New York a man arose and asked the speaker, Pr< sldent Taft, what a man who was out of work and couldn't find any way to support his family was going to do. "God knows," was the president's reply, "I don't." ' Is that society's answer to men like Berger? Give our Socialist friends credit for this much: they are thought ful people who are seeking some way of improvement in our social system whereby it shall not be so easy for one man to accumulate more than he and bo hard for another man just as worthy to get bread for his family. The fault of most of us is that we are not giving enough thought -not any thought, the majority—to such problems. Depend upon it, society has got to face this question, which is going to become more acute with the growing. complexity of our civilization, the heavier pressure of the struggle for existence, the narrowing margin above are cost of living that is resulting from rising pries. It is folly to shut .mr eyes. Tie re are perhaps hum of carl Bergers In this and every other large city who are starving without making an outcry—quietly, proudly, uninterestingly; living along with Im poverished and anemic bodies and blunted minds, Carl Berger may succeed In getting employment and putting his unfor tunate family beyond immediate want. He may even save a few dollars by denying himself all amusements, al though with a sick wife and baby on his hands that Is improbable. But some day the undertaker or the doc tor may come along and take all he has and leave him in debt. He may meet with an accident or lose his em ployment and have to meet the same trials again. What is to be done about such cases? Give them charity? That isn't what they .want. They want a chance to earn an honest living and lay by some thing like other mm so that they can hold their heads up. Once in a while we ought to stop boasting of our big bank clearings and give a Uttle serious thought to rases like Berger's, or like Joseph Ostrow's, who lies In a local hospital with both legs amputati ult of a brave effort to save a . nger from death while perform ing his duty as a trolley conductor. Ostrow has a wife and eight destitute children. Doesn't society owe it to him to see that his bravery shall not be rewarded by compelling him to his family suffer from want tor yean the recipient! of charity that will kill all their self respect?

WOULD HELP BERGER Editor Herald: Seeing in the Letter Box this morning the appeal of Carl Berger, we would bo glad to help him out, for the present at least, by taking care of his child. If he will commu nicate with us at 3242 East First street, or telephone Boyle 1905 we will be glad to make arrangements to care for the baby until Mr. Berger's circum stances are improved. C. A. BAILEY. Los Angeles, Oct. 27. SELF-ABSORBED WOMEN Editor Herald: May I raise my small voice in defense of equal suffrage? I find that women who object to it and say that it is not womanly to vote are those who arc self absorbed and feel little interest in their less fortunate sisters. I think every woman would lie more womanly could she by voting better the condition of working women. I agree with ull Annie Ord says in re gard to this subject and others she has expressed an opinion upon. MRS. E. H. R. Los Angeles, Cal. REGULATED CAR SERVICE Editor Herald: Many people say that it is impossible to remedy the crowded condition of the cars, but we have not yet tried London's double-decker meth od. In Germany there are ordinances prohibiting those cars which are al ready tilled—l mean all of whose seats are occuped —from admitting any more persons. Probably most Americans would rather stand on a moving car than on a corner waiting for the next car. Ni vertheless this shows that Ger many has the power to regulate car service, but here in America the gov ernment is by the people, for the peo ple An ordinance which compelled the establishment of a few comforts f,,r the traveling viublic would also somewhat reduce the profits of the car company and the car company are people also. Who. then, has the power ] whether the majority of the peo ple shall receive that which they pay for, or whether the minority shall con tinue doing as they please? Hut seriously now, how can we tell our government that we want trans fers ami that we ought to pay but half fare if we must stand: and will our government have time to consider such a mutter or the power to enforce a remedial ordinance? i should he great ly obliged for an answer to that ques tion. F- H- Los Angeles, Cal. A PLEA FOR HELP Editor Herald: You published a let ter yesterday morning from a man who was willing to work but unable to find a situation where he could earn money to support himself and his child. Will you now show up the other aide of the question, the side or' the woman who wishes to employ help is willing to pay for it, and yet is unable to find a posi Ible applicant? 1 am a self .supporting woman, liv ing alone with my daughter, aged five years, and a young woman friend. X t.. keep a homo for myself and baby, but cannot do ho without a wom an helper. I can offer a good home, comfortable room, nourishing food, ami reasonable wages to any one who will In return give me trustworthy loyal service. I do not demand fancy cooking, nor long tiresome hours, and yet despite the constant stories of suf fering and poverty and want which are to be heard on every side I am unable to find any woman for this po- Many woman desire to live in hotels and apartment buildings and are erit tlclsed on that account, yet here am 1 anxious to keep my house, where my child may be with me, and have the atmosphere <>f a home about her, ap parently unable to maintain it, be ,,f the Inefficiency of tin- help I nave had. Perhaps some of the letter i»>n read ers can help me in this difficulty as they have helped others who have ap pealed to them. F. D. L. Angeles, Cal A DISCOURAGED WOMAN Editor Herald: The present loose [ system of employment agencies for women is a civic disgrace. A woman seeking work is forced u> bo from place to place registering: lure and there on this street and that with no central point to work from or to look for hope from; paving money here and paying money there out of her already too slender store in order to get the chance of earning bread and shelter. I know of no civic work so needful as the establishment of an employ ment bureau for unemployed women. It would be far-reaching in its effects in many ways and all for the Rood of society. I never understand why the civic section of women's clubs failed to take advantage of this wonderful means of reaching women. No church work that women take up would yield so rich a return. Se if through your columns you can not succeed in creating this much- I needed state institution, the columns I of every newspaper should be open to unemployed men and women as is The Herald, and not, as many of the | other papers, take the last dollar from the unfortunate. I have spent dollars and dollars in advertising and have never received 1 cent returns from the same. A DISCOURAGED WOMAN. Los Angeles, Cal. NEW ZEALAND'SWAY Editor Herald: Readers of the Let ter Box will recall a communication published a few days ago signed "Pon der." The author quoted a late dis patch from Melbourne, Australia, rel ative to the introduction in the federal house of representatives of a bill to amend the constitution by giving the common wealth complete legislative control over trade, commerce, corpora- ■ tlon and Industrial matters, etc., and then proceeds to comment oh the dan ger. He says in part: "It Is worse than tolly for the wealthy and In telligent people of this country to be shutting their eyes and ears to the coming socialistic Storm." He also Bpeaks of "Socialism with its shivery." Has "Ponder" ever pondered over the fact that some poor people are just as Intelligent as those of wealth? His insinuation that only the wealth} Intelligent Is insulting; and as to "So cialism with its slavery," what does he mean? Socialism seeks to put an end to industrial slavery, to Improve the conditions of the worker and for bid the employment of little children in factories and in sweat shops, "l'on der" must fenr that the wealthy might have to work. The writer is not a Socialist, never voted the Socialist ticket, but in common with thousands and tens of thousands of other work ers he realizes that under present in dustrial conditions we are all slaves of the trusts, paying tribute to them, j The cotton trust exacts its tax on the j diaper for the new-born infant; the coffin trust demands its tax on the coffin for the dead. "From the cradle tn tii> grave." For the enlightenment of "Ponder" 1 will quote a few ex tracts from an article by Allan L. Benson entitled "How Other (Countries Reduce the Cost of Living," which ap peared in the June number of Pear son's Magazine: •'The English colonists of New Zeal and do no business with an egg trust, meat trust, fish trust, storage ware house trust or commission man. The owner of a herd of beef cattle looks up no Armour, Cudahy or Swift. Me to his government instead. So the farmer. The government trans ports on its own railway and its own ships the cattleman's beef or the farm er's grain, vegetables and fruit, charging for its service just about the cost of transportation. If he wishes he can store his product in a govern ment cold storage warehouse at the mere cost of ice and attendance. The government will insure at cost. It will eliminate every particle of mid dleman graft, market the products at the highest price obtainable, and re turn to the shipper every penny except the bare cost of handling." I wish The Herald would publish at greater length some portions of this article. It is a real "eye opener," and would bo appreciated by the thou sands who are learning to look upon T)i.' Herald as the champion of right ami justice, placing principle above party. M- Duarte, Cal. Evils of Special Privilege (Prof. .'

San Francisco Harbor Facilities (Chicago The statement of a recent speaker I in that city is that San Prandsco Has the lowest docking rates of any POri in America. The docks are stale owned and not a cent has ever beetl collected of taxpayers for their con struction or maintenance.

See?— Chicago News. with the accompanying power which I this gives. ! l.i I us then, In our talk, speak of the. I conflict not of labor and capital, but 1 of labor and privilege. \ The one thing needful, ■so far as , I politics go, Is to concentrate the politi- I cal force of the country—that is, the 1 ballot—against such partial leglsla- I tion 'is a tariff tax, and against the possession of any charter, franchise, or special right whatsoever, without full compensation to the people. Some monopolies are such that the people should own them through their own government, Just as they own I!,, ii- postofllces. Others must bo reached by direct taxation, such as a tax on land values. Others again, must bo annulled by the abolition of the protective tariff, "the mother of trusts" In whatever way, monopoly must be deprived of Its special advan tages over the natural uses of capital. Take away the madness for special privileges and for all special legislation for special advantages, and capital will flow Into various natural channels, in wholesome competition for meeting natural demands. In this way it can in no wise stand in opposition to labor. The truth of what I have written— namely, that special privilege, in what ever form, whether it be a tariff tax or a telephone franchise. is the real en- v j .■my of good government, the real en- , emy of labor, the real enemy of the natural use of capital—this truth must come home to the American people If they would save themselves from in creasing corruption In public life, from Increasing concentration of wealth, and from Increasing social discontent.
