A DAY'S EVENTS.
A Steamer Stranded Near
Kun Ashore During a Dense
The Breakers Were Not Heard Until
It Was Too Late.
Tax Collector Piatt Heard Before the
Board of Supervisors—A Tilt
With Warm Words.
Word was received in this city yester
day morning that in the dense fog which
hung over the coast Thursday afternoon
the steamer Santa Maria, of San Fran
cisco, was beached three miles north of
Redondo. The accident occurred at 4
o'clock in the afternoon, while a strong
current was running up the coast, and in
a fog denser than has prevailed in this
region for fifteen years.
The Santa Maria lies in any easy posi
tion, stem on, and with decks level. She
ran ashore at high tide, and at low water
her bows are uncovered, her stern being
in about four feet of water.
Captain J. C. Denny gives the follow
ing account of the accident: We were
coming down and making for Redondo
wharf. The fog was one of the densest I
have seen on the coast for fifteen years.
We could not see a boat's length ahead.
After hearing the sound of the breakers
through the fog, I put about and steered
slowly seawards. The current was too
strong, however, and swung her around,
the ship going ashore, stem on. Not a
single plank or seam was strained, and
everything is in perfect order.
The Santa Maria is a small steamer
of 300 tons gross burden, and is owned
by the California Steamship Company,
of which D. J. Meherin, of San Fran
cisco, is the chief factor. She has been
running in opposition to the Pacific
Coast Steamship Company's steamers
for the past year, and has been carrying
freight at reduced rates to obtain busi
ness. At the time of the accident she
had eighty tons of miscellaneous freight
in the hold for Los Angeles and San
Diego. This has been mostly taken out
on the beach in order to "lighten the
vessel as much as possible.
As soon as the accident became known
Captain Banning, of San Pedro, volun
teered the use of the Pelican, and that
tug went to the scene of the accident
immediately. An effort was to be made
last night at high tide to pull the
steamer off, but the chances of doing
this were not very great. One thing
favorable to the vessel is the fact that
she went ashore at the lesser of the two
high tides. If the wreckers are not suc
cessful tonight a more powerful tug will
be dispatched to the scene from San
Francisco. The damage to the steamer
can not be estimated as yet, but will be
The following message was received
from Redondo last evening over the tele
This morning at (5 o'clock word was
received here that the steamer Santa
Maria had stranded on the beach live
miles above. She was bound from San
Francisco to Redondo Beach with sixty
tons of merchandise, and when visited
in the morning was found to be high
and dry on the beach. It is stated that'
there were two factions on board, one
headed by the captain and the other by
the chief engineer. The faction headed
by the chief engineer deserted the
steamer for quite a time, and it was
only after persuasion that they would
help take the merchandise out. which
was quickly accomplished by the aid of
people from Redondo Beach. It was
considered strange that as the steamer
had gone ashore at 3:35 of Thursday
afternoon no word was received at Re
dondo until yesterday morning at 0
o'clock. At the time of the accident
there was a dense fog, through which
the breakers could not be heard until
too late. This statement was confirmed
by the statement of all on board. The
wrecking steamer from San Francisco is
expected to arrive early this morning.
TAX COLLECTOR PLATT.
He Locks Horns with the Experts
Before the Board.
At 1 o'clock yesterday the board of su
pervisors met for the purpose of allowing
County Tax Collector Piatt an oppor
tunity of being heard upon a supple
mental report made by Expert Account
ant Blackman, on the statement handed
in by Mr. Piatt about a week ago. It
will be remembered that in Mr. Piatt's
report he accounted for, by receipt and
otherwise,within a.few dollars of the sum
charged in the accountant's report as
being short. The board then ordered Mr.
Blackman to go over the two statements
with Mr. Piatt and report the differ
ence. The result was that yesterday
Mr. Blackman handed in another report
on which he states that Mr. Piatt is in
correct in but two or three items, but
still claims that the gentleman is short
in his accounts. Judge B. N. Smith,
after the report was read, proceeded to
address the board in behalf of Mr. Piatt
and went over the ground in such a man
ner as to convince all present that he
was somewhat of an accountant him
self. He proved by figures that the ex
pert had made an affidavit to the effect
that he had taken his ligures from the
cash book, when in truth the cash book
showed a difference of some $42,000. The
gentleman was proceeding to shed some
undeveloped light upon the matter when
Supervisor Rowan remarked that there
was no one on trial and that the pro
ceedings were entirely out of order, and
moved that the supplemental report of
Mr. Blackman be handed over to Mr.
Piatt to examine and compare with his
books, and that he have ample time in
which to report back on the same. Mr.
Rowan further stated that Mr. Piatt had
met all previous statements, and he had
no doubt that he would be able to meet
the last one, which claims there is a
shortage of some $400.
Chairman Perry then casually re
marked that no -one had accused Mr.
Piatt of stealing.
'•Yes, there has," spoke up Mr. Piatt,
"and he is standing in this room at the
This straight accusation had the effect
of bringing a number to their feet, who
desired to be heard at once. Chairman
Perry endeavored to get a motion before
the board to adjourn, when Deputy Tax
Collector Smith stepped forward and ad
dressing the board, said:
"That gentleman sitting in that chair
[pointing to George Monroe, an assistant
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 17, 1890.
of Mr. Blackmail, 1 is the man who has
repeatedly made his boasts that if he
ever got a chance to get at Boh Piatt's
books he would do him up, and within
the past three days has made his boasts
upon the street that he has done so."
"It is false; I deny it," yelled Monroe,
whose face had turned crimson.
"It is true," spoke up Mr. Conrad,
who was present, "and there are wit
nesses right in this room."
Things began to look very serious,
when the board put a quietus to the tur
moil by taking a recess.
The result was, however, that Chair
man Perry ordered Mr. Monroe to desist
from further participation in the matter,
which was received with approbation
from Mr. Piatt and his deputies.
Mr. Monroe states that the name of
Mr. Matlock was used as the authority
for the statement that he, Monroe,
would do up Piatt, and that Mr. Mat
lock under oath denies having ever
made any such report.
It appears now that Mr. Blackmail's
experting brings Piatt in $$69.02 behind.
Of this $228.64 is cash on hand held by
Piatt. That reduces the amount to
$343.80. Mr. Piatt claims that .$345 of
this is for poll-tax handed over to the
state, which has no right to appear on
his cash book. This would practically
balance the cash book, and this Piatt
still insists will be the outcome. He
claims to have the best kept set of books
ever showed by a tax collector.
It looks now more than ever as if Piatt
would come out on top so far as finances
go; but he is dead as a door nail —dead
as mutton,dead as McGinty—politically,
and that is all the muss was raised for.
It seems that Mr. Blackman's fees for
experting the books came to $1,300. It
is also asserted that a detective has been
paid $1,000 for dogging Piatt's steps to
get something on him.
There may be politics and morals from
the g. o. p. standpoint of politics and
morals in all this, but where do the
rights of the bedeviled taxpayers appear
in this? Is it not rather expensive to
make the farmers who lost their potato
crops in the rains last winter pay $2,300
and upwards to "queer" the g. o.'p. can
didate because he aspires to succeed Mr.
Mason as county assessor ?

is suing for a divorce from Vicente Elis

woman is a sister of Dick See who was
tried here for killing Bill Dumert at Lex
ington nearly 20 years ago and acquitted.
She is nearly totally blind and
is deaf too. She sues on
the grounds of extreme cruelty. Elisalde
is a Mexican of not too prepossessing
appearance, and the woman tells a sad
story of his brutal treatment of her. The
case goes on today.
Judge McKinley was served with a
writ of prohibition front the supreme
court yesterday, forbidding further pro
ceedings in the condemnation suit of the
city of Pasadena against Mrs. T. B.
Bishop and others. The condemnation
is for a right of way for a sewer over the
lands of defendants, and the writ of pro
hibition is granted because the
city has failed to do certain
acts which are held to be necessary to
be done prior to the bringing of a con
demnation suit. The prohibition is
until June 13th, and the city is cited to
show cause why it should not be made
perpetual. The writ is returnable be
fore the court sitting in San Francisco.

A Statement by the Citizens'
The Petition They Desire to be
It Will Be Presented to the City
Clergymen and Others Who Have Already
Signed the Document—Extracts
From the Law.
The citizens' committee on Sun
day closing met yesterday evening in the
j First Presbyterian church and decided
i to present the following to the public:
i Our city closes saloons on election days;
why not on Sundays also? There is the
I same reason, namely, that liquor and
leisure never meet but for mischief.
There are many reasons for Sunday clos.
ing, but that just given is one on which
all friends of law and order can consist
ently unite. Even those who hold the
most secular view of government, and
j those who do not favor prohibition, and
j those who believe Saturday is the true
| Sabbath, and those who do not keep any
Sabbath religiously, all these should ask
j that saloons be closed not only on elec
tion days but also on Sundays, because
Sunday closing reduces Sunday crime,
i In Scotland and in Philadelphia alike
j the reduction was seven-eights. This
I shows that it is not idleness that begets
crime, but idleness married to drink.
"Idleness is the devil's workshop," but
the shop itself is almost idle until drink
furnishes it with tools. There is another
reason, equally broad, for Sunday clos
ing, namely, that the Sunday opening of
saloons tends toward the Monday closing
"Blue Monday" costs a single firm in
another city $1*75,000 per year in lost la
bor, besides the losses of "its sober em
ployees,who often miss the wages of that
day because those on whose cooperation
their work depends do not recover from
their Sunday "recreation" in the saloons
until Tuesday, or later. A further reason
for Sunday closing, as secular as the
others, is that there exists in
the most substantial families of
the east—those who make the most
desirable settlers—a decided preference
for a quiet and orderly American Sab
bath of closed saloons, rather than a
continental Sunday of unrestrained dis
sipation ; and, therefore, when the news
is Hashed across the land that our beau
tiful city has decreed Sunday closing it
will doubtless add both to the quantity
and quality of our citizenship. For the
sake of our city's order on Sunday and
its business on Monday and its pros
perity on all days we ask all good citi
zens to join in this movement for Sun
day closing. That the city council has
power to do this is clear alike from the
constitution, the courts and the charter.
The constitution says: "Any county, city,
town or township may make anil enforce within
its limits all such local, police, sanitary or
other regulations as are not in conflict with the
general law s." Art. XI, Sec. 11. Our supreme
court, in the famous "Pasadena case," held that
the foregoing provision of the constitution
affords sufficient ground for any California
county or town or city to close saloons on all
days (74 Cal. 20). Much more does it warrant
closing them one-seventh of the days. Our
city's charter make* the matter still more
clear by the following provision (Sec. 22):
"The said corporation shall have the power to
make and enforce within its limits such other
local, police, sanitary and other regulations as
are not in conflict with general laws and are
deemed expedient to maintain the public peace,
protect property, promote the public morals
and to preserve the health of its inhabitants "
This is nota party movement. Excepting Cali
fornia, all the states, democratic and repub
lican alike, have Sunday laws. Judge Thnr
man's decision in favor of such law is the
standard. The south la "solid" for Sunday.
The Catholic plenary council declared against
saloons. Both Catholics and Protestants are
committed to this action by their chief coun
cils. The recent catholic lay congress at Balti
more advised co-operation with non-Catholics
In Sunday closing. Bishop Mora and the whole
Catholic clergy of this city have signed the
Powderly declared against Sunday salons
as the worst foes of the workingmen. The un
dersigned committee has organized on this
single issue. All efforts of the friends of the
saloons to side-track the committee on other
issues will be in vain. Individually and as
members of other bodies, some of the com
mittee will doubtless urge all Christians to ob
serve the Sabbath religiously, and all citizens
to rest and let rest on the rest day; but this
citizens' committee, as such, campaigns tor
but one object, the Sunday closing of saloons.
From the pastoral letter of the Roman Catho
lic prelates of the United States, December,
1S84: "There is one way of profaning the
Lord's day which is so prolific of evil results
that we consider it our duty to utter against it
special condemnation. This is the practice of
selling beer or other liquors on Sunday, or of
frequenting places where they are sold. This
practice tends more than any other lo turn the
day of the Lord into a day of dissipation, to use
it tor an occasion of breeding Intemperance.
While we hope that Sunday laws on this point
will not be relaxed, but even more rigidly en
forced, we implore all Catholics, for the love of
Cod and country, never to take part in such
Sunday traffic, nor to patronize or countenance
From resolutions adopted by the Bal
timore lay congress of Catholics :
"There are many Christian Issues in which
Catholics could come together with non-Catho
lics and shape civil legislation for the public
weal. In spite of rebull'and injustice and over
looking zealotry, we should seek alliance with
non-Catholics for proper Sunday observance.
Without going over to the Judaic Sabbath, we
can bring the masses over to the moderation of
the Christian Sunday. To effect this we musl
set our faces sternly against the sale ol Intoxi
cating beverages on Sunday. The corrupting
influence of saloons in politics, the crime and
pauperism resulting from excessive drinking,
require legislative restriction, which we can
aid In procuring by joining our influence with
that of the other enemies of intemperance. Let
us resolve that drunkenness shall be made odi
ous, and give practical encouragement and sup
port to Catholic temperance societies. We favor
the passage and enforcement of laws rigidly
closing saloons on Sunday and forbidding the
sale Of liquor to minors and Intoxicated per
