LOS ANGELES. Cal., Jan. 3.-After be
ing Isolated for forty-eight hours, partial
communication was established today be
tween Los Angeles and the outside world,
although It will be many days before the
damage wrought by the rainstorms of tho
last four days Is repaired.
Tonight the Golden State Limited of the
Hock Island and the Southern Pacific lines,
which was stalled at Iudlo for two days,
The Los Angeles Limited was sent east
via El Paso Instead of Ogden.
Much concern Btlll Is felt by officials of
all three transcontinental roads reaching
this city. Two long stretches of roadbed
are washed away between Los Angeles
and San Bernardino, on the route used
Jointly by the San Pedro, Los Angeles and
Salt Lake, and by the Santa Fe.
On the Santa Fe conditions are par
ticularly bad. The second section" of the
Santa Fe'a California Limited Is held at
Cajon. It was due here last Friday.
Trains No. 7 and 1 from Chicago, both due
here Saturday, are stalled at Barstow, and
train No. , eustbound, Is at The Needles.
They probably will arrive Wednesday.
Four women, two men and six children,
marooned on a narrow strip of land be
tween two branches of the Santa Ana
river near Downey all night, were rescued
this morning by members of the Venice
llfesavlng crew, who brought their heavy
surfboat on a flatcar.
One of those who distinguished them
selves when efforts were being made to
reach the endangered people was Mrs.
Henry T. Gage, wife of the newly ap
pointed minister to Portugal, who wad d
through mud almost knee deep to direct
rescuers from, the Gag ranch, near- the
banks of the river.

the flrf t -dny's banking business. For the
first time In history the day's hank clear
ings have crossed the t4.0X,0')0 mark.
"All clearing house records are smashed,"
said W. B. Hughes, secretary of the
Omaha "association. "The nearest approach
we ever made to the S4.O0O.OOO mark was on
March 3, 1909. when the total amount of
business amounted to $.1.429.F31.41. Today's
showing Is just S701.477.16 ahead of the old
"Today's record is partly accounted for
by the holiday Saturday, but not entirely.
Than, again, there was considerable bank
Ins done today that was left over from
Friday night's business:. . However, there
has been a steady advance from year to
year and month to month and day to d.iy.
"The big record made In March Inst year
was at a time when the bank clcarlnirs
are naturally high. That is really one of
the" biggest periods of the year on account
of dealings In grain and other business."
As was shown In the report of the Clear
ing House association Friday for the yenr
1909. there was an Increase of $132.6'l9."01 B7
over the preceding year. The advance was a
natural one when the activity In commer
cial circles Is taken fully Into considera
tion. The clrariag for the corresponding date,
one year ago, was $2,72fl,S14.49. The first
day's figures this year show an Increase In
one day of $1,404,207.08.
"The city certainly has made a record

MAYOR CAYNOR HAS SLATE
Executive of City of New York An
nounces Number of Appointments.
PRAISE FOR dlARLES J. MURPHY
He aa Men and Women Who Vrr
llrnonnrlnii 'Iniutiiuny lloss Know
l ittle of Hint -Will Make
( Irnn Snrrs.'
. KW YORK. Jan. 3. M.iyor Guynor
gave nut lat-t night through his secretary.
Robert Adanison, bis list of appoliilmehiH,
so far as he bus been able to make U);in.
and an account of his r?la;ions with
Charles Murphy, leader of Tammany hall.
The latter follows:
"When Mayor Guynor was seen lat
evening he was found in his home library
deep In the perufrtl of a liltln book called
'Wisdom of Benjamin Franklin.' When
asked if the political leaders had bio;i
consulted In making of appolntmenta he
" '1 feel thai there Is one great act of
Justice which I should do. I was nom
inated without even a suggestion bein.r
made as to what I should do us mayor.
Since election Mr. Charles F. Murphy hus
calied on me three times, each tl'tie ask
ing me to appoint the best men to be
found. His suggestions were few; he urged
nothing, and l.ept saying to me thut the
I esponslblllly -w as solely with me.
" 'I fear there ure a good many people
In this town who do not know Charles F.
Murphy. Some of them se-tn to-think he
lias horns and hoofs. I can inly say of
him what I have seen, lie fully r.alzei
that u political organization cannot sur
vive and grow broader on pationaxe alone
without political ideas and virtu.-, but
must shrivel up and die of wor e than dry
rot. 1 would advise some good women
and clergymen who arc wilting l m.
about Charles F. Murphy und whut th -X
call the white slave traffic to go up a. id
see htm and say a kind word to him.
They may be surprised.
" 'Thou shalt not beur false w Itn -ss Is
also one of the commandments. There are
more vices than one.' "
Comment on Appointments.
The mayor In naming his apoUile s ap
pends also a brief personal und puliuc.il
biography of each. These comments, some
of. them waggish, some naive. It wus later
announced, were not to be printed as the
mayor's own, although he did say they
were Issued without his sanction. Some
of them are conspicuous In a form;tl state
ment. For instance,, of Riilri- lander
Waldo, appointed fire commissioner, It Is
noted that "hf Is a buchelor and a grout
catch, for he rs rich."
Herman Bidder, publisher of the Stauts
Zeltung, who has been offered the position
of park commissioner for Manhattan und
Richmond, but who bus not yet accepted,
the statement says, thut 011 account of Mr.
Bidder's connection with tho pros "he
feels delicate In this matter, as his work
as a public official would have lo be com
mented on by the press, which should not
be under constraint. The spectacle of a
newspaper publisher running for office und
being puffed up by his own newspaper is
nauseous to Mr. Bidder. "
Nearly All Are Democrats.
Most oT the mayor's appointees are dicd-in-the-wool
democrats, and the statement
Is careful, In giving the biographies, not
only to mention those that are, but also
to specify that they have children. The
mayor himself has seven children.
A mpng the .appointments are: .
Corporation counsel, salary $15,000, Arch
ibald R. Watson, about 40 years old, mar
City chamberlain, salary $12,000, Charles
H. Hyde, 40 years old, married, democrat.
Commissioner of docks, Calvin Tompkins,
salary $7,500, married, democrat.
Commissioner of charities, salary $7,rxK),
Michael J. Drummond, married, politics
not given. ,
Commissioner of water, gas and electric
ity, Henry S. Thompson, salary $7,500, sin
gle, a democrat.
With him Is appointed Edward Bemls ns
first deputy, salary $5,000, who was form
erly at the head of the water department
of Cleveland, O., "which it is conceded he
has made the model water department of
Commissioner of bridges, salary $7,500,
Klngsley Martin, 32 years old, a democrat.
The seven lax commissioners, the state
ment concludes, "will be appointed in a
day or two. The uppointces will be all
high class men who will banish graft and
favoritism from the department.
"Tho police, street cleaning and health
departments are to be deulth with here
after. It Is not believed that any of the
Incumbents will be retained permiuietitly."
Warm Praise for
Senators Say Work is Proceeding
with Economy and
WASHINGTON. Jan. 2. Construction
work on the Panama canal is not only pro
ceeding splendidly, but the system of ud
mlnistraiion la brilliant In spltu of criti
cism directed to It. This is ihe concensus
of opinion of the senatorial committee,
which returned to Washington today on
the dispatch boat Dolphin utter u visit of
inspection lo thu canul one. In the party
were Senators Oliver, I'eiuose, Cartel-,
Dixon, Heyburn and Clark.
Senator Oliver whs 1 s-poiial'y Impr-ssid
with the manner in which the work Is be
ing carried on. The system of stirring
rivalry between the army of civilian en
gineers and workers bus resulted lu stimu
lating work, he suld. The judgment of the
party Is that no change in the t-xlstlmj
system should be contemplated, und all
praised the managerial ability of Colonel
Goethals, tho engineer In charge.
The practical unanimity of the son-.ue
committtee Is expected to cust u blight
over the legislation proposed in a bill of
fend in the houso by Representative Mann
ot Illinois, which already has bee;i re
ported from the committee. The bill pro
vides for u change In the government of
the canal zone and the abolition of the
Panama canul commission.

"Cupid nnd the Dollar" Is one of those
plays In which the uncouth but gold
hrsrted American twlsls the lion's tall
until the English beast roars; the son rf
a a.inirwiiat free country putting large
crimps In the dlssoulre scion of an effete
and debilitated nobility. But this sort of
thing ftpp.nl to an American ftudlenre,

Such a character as Stralton Is a grate

to see him displaying the exuberance of a
