Mathes had joined the firm, and it was at his insistence that the Times continued publication, in JulyHarrison Gray Otis moved from Santa Barbara to become the papers editor. Otis made the Times a financial success, in an era where newspapers were driven by party politics, the Times was directed at Republican readers. As was typical of newspapers of the time, the Times would sit on stories for several days, historian Kevin Starr wrote that Otis was a businessman capable of manipulating the entire apparatus of politics and public opinion for his own enrichment.
Otiss editorial policy was based on civic boosterism, extolling the virtues of Los Angeles, the efforts of the Times to fight local unions led to the October 1, bombing of its headquarters, killing twenty-one people.
Two union leaders, James and Joseph McNamara, were charged, the American Federation of Labor hired noted trial attorney Clarence Darrow to represent the brothers, who eventually pleaded guilty.
Upon Otiss death inhis son-in-law, Harry Chandler, Harry Chandler was succeeded in by his son, Norman Chandler, who ran the paper during the rapid growth of post-war Los Angeles.

Beat 'em up — Beat em up is a video game genre featuring hand-to-hand combat between the protagonist and an improbably large number of opponents. These games typically take place in settings and feature crime-fighting and revenge-based plots, though some games may employ historical. Traditional beat em ups take place in scrolling, two-dimensional levels and these games are noted for their simple gameplay, a source of both critical acclaim and derision.
Two-player cooperative gameplay and multiple characters are also hallmarks of the genre. The first influential beat em up was s Kung-Fu Master, with s Renegade introducing the urban settings, Games such as Streets of Rage, Final Fight and Golden Axe are other classics to emerge from this period.
The genre has been popular since the emergence of 3D-based mass-market games. A beat em up is a type of game where the player character must fight a large number of enemies in unarmed combat or with melee weapons.
Gameplay consists of walking through a level, one section at a time, defeating a group of enemies before advancing to the next section, however arcade versions of these games are often quite difficult to win, causing players to spend more money to try to win. Beat em ups are related to—but distinct from—fighting games, which are based around one-on-one matches rather than scrolling levels, such terminology is loosely applied, however, as some commentators prefer to conflate the two terms.
At times, both one-on-one fighting games and scrolling beat em ups have influenced each other in terms of graphics and style, occasionally, a game will feature both kinds of gameplay. Beat em up games usually employ vigilante crime fighting and revenge plots with the taking place on city streets, though historical. Players must walk from one end of the world to the other. Some later beat em ups dispense with 2D-based scrolling levels, instead allowing the player to roam around larger 3D environments, though they retain the simple gameplay.
Throughout the level, players may acquire weapons that they can use as well as power-ups that replenish the players health, as players walk through the level, they are stopped by groups of enemies who must be defeated before they can continue.
The level ends when all the enemies are defeated, each level contains many identical groups of enemies, making these games notable for their repetition. In beat em up games, players fight a boss—an enemy much stronger than the other enemies—at the end of each level.
Beat em ups often allow the player to choose between a selection of protagonists—each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and set of moves, attacks can include rapid combinations of basic attacks as well as jumping and grappling attacks. Characters often have their own attacks, which leads to different strategies depending on which character the player selects 8.
