WOOD OR IRON?
How Shall the Court House
Roof be Constructed?
Shall It be Fire-proof, as is the
- Is It Worth 84.2,000 to Make the
Interviews with the Big Tax-payers on
This Important Question—Pro
The Board of Supervisors have before
them a question as to changing the roof
of the new court house. As at present
planned and contracted for, the roof is
to be a wooden frame covered by slate
shingles. The wood in this frame of the
roof is the only ignitible material in the
building, from the lowest footings of
the basement walls to the chimney pots
above the roof. The walls are stone or
brick, the joists and girders are of iron
or steel, the floors are slate. It is abso
lutely a fire-proof structure until one
reaches the frame-work of the roof. In
this there is naturally a large amount
of wood, as it must uphold a covering of
slate shingles whose weight is very
great. There is not much danger of fire
getting into the roof if it is prop
erly constructed without dormer
windows or mansard features. In
case of a fire the roof only would be lost,
but tbe inconvenience and disfiguring of
the building would be great. With a
roof of metal the entire edifice would be
absolutely fireproof in all its parts and
in all respects. The cost of the proposed
change would be $42,000.
Knowing these facts, and that the
board was wrestling with the problem,
yesterday a Herald reporter was de
tailed to gather up the views of a num
ber of heavy tax-payers as to the desira
bility of making such a change at the
John Tt . Humphreys was found at his
office on Spring street, and the mat
ter being explained, he said: I
think the building ought to be all of
the best construction, and that it is very
desirable that the roof, like the other
parts of the building, ought to be fire
proof. As to the cost, lam not prepared
to speak. All means ought to be
' used to keep that down to what is fair
to the contractor and people. Being a
change from the original contract, the
builder will naturally expect to make a
good profit, but he ought not to be al
lowed to charge what is unfair.
General E. Bouton said: The
court house will cost, I suppose,
$600,000. It is to stand for all time.
To scrimp in the matter of the roof
looks to me like being penny-wise and
L. N. Breed, of the Southern Califor
nia Bank, said: I think the roof ought
to correspond in the main with the rest
of the building. It ought to be fire
W.F.Bosbysheil.of the same bank, said:
I think a steel frame and slate shingles
the best, provided the shingles will
not be too heavy. I think slate shingles
should be preferable to iron; although I
have not given that matter much
It may be well to state that there is a
rebate allowed by the contractor of $2,
--000 for the change in the shingles from
slate to metal.
W. Lacy, Sr., said: One is
hardly prepared to speak on so im
portant a matter in this off-hand
manner. I have not given the subject
much consideration. But as a mere off
hand view, I would say that so expen
sive a building, for so important uses,
ought to be as near fire-proof aa pos
W. J. Brodrick said: By all means
the roof ought to be of iron. The build
ing is for all time, and ought to be so
constructed that i t will not be needing
repairs or be in danger of partial des
John W. Gaffey and Fred. Harkness,
who were in Mr. Brodrick's company
when the reporter interviewed him, said
that they entirely concurred in these
W. H. Workman was the first met
who dissented from the iron roof. He
said: It is all wrong to change the
plans now. There will he very little
chance of a fire in the roof if it is prop
erly finished, and therefore the extra
expense seems to me unnecessary, the
more so at a time when taxes are very
high, and money rather scarce.
H. W. Hellman, of the Farmers and
Merchants Bank, said: The court house
ought to have a tire-proof roof. The
extra cost ought not to prevent this be
ing done. Aa a tax-payer, I say the
mistake made when the plans were
drawn ought to be corrected now. The
original plans ought to have provided
for a fire-proof roof.
J. M. Elliott, of the First National
Bank, said: I am not quite ready to
express an unqualified opinion, as I have
not given the matter very close consid
eration. But it seems to me that a
properly constructed slate roof would be
practically fire-proof, even with wood as
the frame work. There should be
no dormer windows in the roof, nor
casings or other woodwork exposed to
catch fire. The risk would then be very
small, and the expense of the change is
great. Then apparatus ought to be pro
vided near the roof to extinguish a fire,
if one by any chance should catch
there. The expense ol" such precaution
would be very small.
C. Prager, said: As an ex-supervisor,
I say the change ought not to be made.
A change is always a bad thing under
such circumstances. All that could be
lost in the extremely improbable event
of a fire in the roof would be the roof
itself. I would not take $42,000 more of
the people's money for such a purpose.
The taxes are already high enough, and
no addition that can be helped ought to
be made to them.
Tom Hays said : I think we ought to
have as good a court house as we can
get. It ought to be fire-proof in all re
spects, so as to secure it against all pos
sibility of destruction. lam willing to
pay my proportion of the extra $42,000.
A. E. Pomeroy said: I have kept the
run of this topic in the daily papers.
I think the change should be made. The
building should be for all time with no
need of replacement of any parts.
Geo. H. Stewart of the County Bank,
' said: It is better to have a fire-proof roof
even at the extra cost of $42,000. But
that seems to me a large difference to
pay for the change. The slate
costs more than the metal shingles, and
there can hardly, it seems to me, be so
much difference between the cost of the
wood and of the steel frame.
J. G. Estudillo said: "There is'no
question about it. The court house so
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD; WEDNESDAY MORNING, APRIL 30, 1890.
far has been properly built. It ought to
be completed in the same manner. The
building is fire-proof, the roof ought to
be so. Not of course at any cost, but at
any fair cost, say $30,000 to $40,000. I
do not know just what the cost of the
change ought to be. The building ought
to be uniform in all its parts, and be a
credit to the county."
Dr. M. Hagan said: I favor
the change because it will be a
permanent betterment to the build
ing. It will secure it against risks and
be better in all ways. If it ia worth
$42,000 to make the roof tire-proof, it is
worth that much to get the building
made safe. The extra expense seems a
little high, but it may be worth that
much to make tbe change.
Cyrus Willard said: The proposed
change is for the better and ought to be
made. So long as the building is fire
proof the roof ought to be so. Make it
fire-proof all through. As to the ex
pense, lam not prepared to say much.
I have not seen the plans and am
not able to guess at the cost
of such change. It may seem
a big difference to pay, but it may not
really be so. A burning roof is hard to
put out. That is what destroyed Boston.
The fire got into the mansard roofs and
the water could not reach the spot.
W. J. A. Smith said: I am
in favor of the change. I think
it ought to be made. But would not a
copper roof be the best, the cheapest,
the most durable, the lightest? lam
not sure but it would be so. Ido not
know as to the cost of such a proposed
change. It may be a good deal to pay
$42,000 for it.
The above gives a fair idea of the way
the citizens look upon this matter.
Most of the heavy taxpayers seen cer
tainly favor the change, even at the

Some Curious and Valuable Botanical
Specimens—The Mineral Display—A
Communication on the Subject,
The permanent exhibit of the Cham

from the tree when it is three years old.
It grows very rapidly. Senator Cole has
a tree on his place one year old which is
eleven feet high, and two inches in di

The Los Angeles Orchestral Society Starts
Out Encouragingly—Promises for
Los Angeles is essentially a musical
city, and in the near future it is not only
possible but probable that it will take
the lead in musical matters on this Coast.
It has long been remarked that no mat
ter how dull business may be, an opera
company, if it ia good, will draw packed
houses. It has also been noticed that
concerts of all kinds are more largely at
tended here than in any other city on
the Coast, and, as a general rule, the
class of music heard is better than that
given elsewhere. The directors of the
public library, recognizing the fact that
element was large in the
city, added a circulating department for
music not long since, and the demand
there has been so large as to show that
they were not mistaken.
There are at present in the city three
muaical organization which have proven
to be of great value in the Los Angeles
world of harmony. They .have done
much in the past, not only in the way
of cultivating the public, but in pre
senting such compositions as could not
be heard without a trip to the East.
These societies so far have received the
warm support of the public, and that
they will increase in strength and capa
bility is now an assured fact.
The Ellis Club.
The first and oldest of these is the
Ellis Club, which was founded on Janu
ary 23, 1888, and organized on the 3d of
April in the same year. This club was
formed by a number of gentlemen who
af*e still members, and who took such.an
interest in music written for the
male voice that they decided to
have the active membership entirely
male, and to give four concerts a year,
to which those who desire to associate
together for the purpose of guaranteeing
enough to pay the hall rent and other
expenses are invited. There was
no lack of enthusiasm, and to
day, after an existence of two
years, and after having given
seven concerts, the club finds itself on a
firmer foundation than ever before.
There are at present sixty active mem
bers who take part in the concerts, and
twelve auxiliary members who rehearse
with the club, but who do not take part
in its concerts except when some of the
active members are absent. The va
cancies in the active membership are
filled by the transfer of auxiliary mem
bers. There are 200 associate members,
each of whom pays $10 per year
and receives four tickets to each of the
four concerts given by the club during
the year, which begins April Ist. The
last concert of tiu3 second year will be
given at Turn Verein hall on May Bth,
and for this a programme is being
arranged which, it is said, will eclipse
all former efforts. The following is a
list of the officers and committees
elected April Ist, for the season of
1890-1891: President, H. T. Lee; vice
president, H. G. Newhail; treasurer, D.

Similar in purpose, but with female
voices, is the Treble Clef Club. Tbjs
organization was formed a little over a
year ago, and finished its first season on
the 15th of last month at Turner hall.
The ladies who compose the active mem
bership labored very hard and faithfully
during the year, and the result was that
they succeeded in giving for the closing
concert their programme in such a man
ner as to surprise even their wannest
admirers and give hope of something
grand in the future. The nature of the
music taken up during the year may be
gathered from the following programme:
"Approach of Spring" (Gade); "Barca
rolle" (Brahms); "Love's Messengers"
(Howell); "AVaggon" (Molloy); "Bal

l.os Angeles Orchestral Society.
Turning from vocal music into the no
less important branch, instrumental, the
Los Angeles Orchestral Society comes to
the front. This society is as yet very
young, having given but one public re
hearsal, at which it was demonatrated
that it waa formed with the right idea,
and that when another year shall have
rolled around it will take its place as an
equal to any org.T zation of the kind on
the Coast. At Jie public rehearsal
Mozart's XII symphony was rendered
in a remarkably correct manner, con
sidering the fact that the performers
are amateurs. It is proposed
that this society shall be supported in
the same manner as the Ellis and Treble
Cleff Clubs, and with three such organ
izations Lot Angeles may be well satis
lied with the start she has made in the
musical line. Dr. O. W. Green is pres
