The protest of property-owners against
the construction of sewers along Main,

Mr. Cunningham said he was in favor
of the sewer, but he did not propose to

the work go ahead.
Mr. Valliant asked that his name be
taken off the protest, for the reason that
he thought the sewer was a necessity.
Mr. Rhodes objected to the building
of the sewer on Main street because no
outfall had been provided. The citi
zens were not able to pay out the money
at the present time.
City Engineer Eaton stated that it
had always been the intention to take
care of the sewage temporarily. Enough
property-owners south of the city had
been found who were willing to take the
sewage in the summer from the
west and southwestern part of
the city. The sewage from East
Ix>B Angeles could be taken into the
river, and that from the center of the
city could could run south of Vernon as
at present. This, he thought, would
provide for the sewage until the outfall
President Frankenfield suggested that
it would be well to postpsne action for
thirty days, and in the meantime a com
mittee could ascertain whether land
could be obtained south of the city to
take the sewage.
Major Bonsall said that the suggestion
was a good one.
Mr. Shafer said that the people would
take the sewage if they could get it at
once, but he did not think that they
would make contracts for sewage to be
delivered a year hence.
On motion of Major Bonsall, the matter
was postponed for four weeks, and the
sewer committee was requested to make

The sewer committee reported as fol
May 19th, 1890, the mayor returned
unapproved two contracts for sewer pipe
because the price of the pipe was far
in excess of its value." June 6th he
returned two similar contracts because
he was "in entire ignorance of the cost."
On investigation we find the reason
given for the non-approval of the con
tracts not based on facts : We generously
concede the truth of the position taken
relative to the last contracts, but think
the conclusion arrived at unjust, as long
delay in building on sewers should
not depend on any one man's ig
norance. The communication under
consideration says: "The committee
did not ask me for proof of a single fact
from which I have a right to infer they
did not want to know." This imputa-j
tion on our motives calculated to lead to
suspicion whether made unthoughtfully
or offensively is unworthy the man who
so flippantly made it. Our exhaustive
report is sufficient evidence that the
best sources of information were sought.
The mayor's clerk and confidential ad
viser was interviewed and an invitation
Was sent to the mayor himself to attend
the meeting of the committee. It is the j
sheerest nonsense to say that the agents I
representing eastern firms were paid for
not bidding, and it is still more |
nonsensical to say that "sewer pipe has ;
a fixed market value." We know of no
article of commerce where value is not
changeable, and if the mayor will but
take the pains to inform himself he will
gee that it costs three times as much to
make pipe in Los Angeles as at such
eastern points as Akron or Columbus.
His honor in calling attention to the
fact that he had been misrepresented,
misrepresents the sewer committee, and
not being content with this, occupies a
large space moralizingon what that com
mittee is wrongly accredited with say
ing, which is in fact only an emanation
from his fertile brain.
He says "a decent respect should be
paid to all suggestions looking to the
protection of the public interest." And
why should not such suggestions be
made in a decent way ? If the mayor
knows where cheaper pipe can be ob
tained, having such a solicitude for the
public good, why does he not make it
known, instead of writing sensational
messages casting a stigma upon the
council, and particularly upon the sewer
committee, by holding out to the pub
lic the idea that we are guilty of neglect,
if not of theft, and that he is the only
honest man in the city government.
Again the mayor says, "Mv recom
mendations weic'not made in fun to be
laughed out of countenance by the
sewer committee." Probably not, but
in the same spirit of demagogy that
prompted him on a certain occasion to
pledge himself that "so long as he is
mayor of this city he can be relied on to
oppose every crooked transaction that
comes to his attention." The animus
of the message appears in this extract,
"nor is it the intention to investigate
this matter openly."
We would most humbly suggest that
honorable preferment is not made by
traducing others and that there :s a dig
nity belonging to the high office which
he holds that should not be dragged
down to the level of the demagogue to
make capital for him who holds it, but
that should lift the demagogue up to a
higher place and a nobler purpose.
For the same reasons given in a for
mer report, that of May 26th, we recom
mend the approval of the contracts not
withstanding the mayor's objections, and
that the city attorney be requested to
sign in behalf of the city.
The report was adopted.
Mr. Hamilton moved that an ordinance
of intention to sidewalk Main street from
Ninth to California be prepared. Car
The report of the sewer committee, as
published in the Herald, was read and
Mr. Hamilton moved that the street
superintendent see that all the sidewalks

Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria
Three Inquests Held by the
A Baby Killed by a Runaway
A Clerk Falls Dead in a Dry Goods
Clayton White Arrested —He Makes a
Statement—Other Items of More
Than Usual Interest.
Justice R. A. Marshall of Burbank,
acting in the capacity of deputy-coroner,
held an inquest at North Pasadena yes
terday morning upon the body of a child
named Eduardo Garcia, aged 15 months,
who came to his death by being acci
dentally run over by a wagon.
Between the hours of S and 9 o'clock
yesterday morning boys named San
tiago Fembres, Simon Acosta, Diego
Acosta, Joaquin Rios, and Frank Acosta
clambered into a wagon at the house of
Mrs. Cecilia Rios on De Coto street, in
N. Pasadena, taking the baby Garcia
with them for a ride. Frank
Acosta drove the team, but
before going very far, the
neck-yoke broke and the pole fell to the
ground, and frightened the horses,
causing them to run away with the
wagon. The pole plowed up the ground
for some distance, but finally struck
against a stump and threw all the
children out of the wagon, which was
smashed up by the shock. All the boys j
were injured by their fall in a slight de- j
gree, most of them escaping with a few
Bruises and a severe shaking. The
baby, however, fell in front of the hind
wheel of the wagon, which passed over
its head as the team rushed on with the
wreck of the wagon. One of the elder
boys picked up the child's body and car
ried it home, when Dr. Dalrymple was
summoned, but on his arrival at the
residence of the baby's mother on Kus- i
sell street, the physician at once pro
nounced life extinct, whereupon the cor
oner was notified of the accident.
At 3:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon
Coroner Meredith held an inquest upon
the body of Richard Walsh, a native of
Ireland, 68 years of age, who died sud
denly yesterday morning from heart
From the testimony adduced at the
official investigation a"s to the cause of i
his death it was learned that Walsh was
a clerk behind the satin counter at J. T. j
Sheward's store on Spring street, and
was attending to some lady cus- '
tomers at 10:30 o'clock yesterday
morning when he suddenly fell I
to the floor. Thinking that he had
merely fainted, W. R. McKendrick, the
manager, and a fellow clerk named J.
G. Wilcox, picked up the prostrate form
and laid it on the counter, applying
camphor and ammonia to Walsh's nose
as restoratives. Dr. Rees was hastily
summoned from his office over the store,
but quickly as he responded, he was too
late to be of service, as Walsh was dead.
The jury on learning the facts returned
a verdict of death.from natural causes.
Mr. Walsh, who ronulpd «t Ntr. 10
Mayo street, was a widower. He leaves
two sons, both of whom are at present in
The same jury was called upon to sit
upon another case immediately after the
close of the Walsh inquest, the subject
on the second occasion being the female
child which was found in a vacant lot on
Winston street last Friday afternoon.
After hearing the testimony of Dr. T. J.
McCarty, who stated that after an ex
amination he was confident that the
child had been prematurely born, but
had never breathed, the jury returned a
verdict of natural causes.
He Makes a Statement About the
Clayton White, the attorney, was
arrested yesterday afternoon in his office
in the Temple block by Officer Gridley
on a warrant issued by Justice Austin,
charging him with having battered his
wife, Susan, on Sunday morning last at
her residence on Boyle Heights. He I
was taken before Justice Austin, who
set his case for trial on Thursday next at
2 o'clock p. in., bail being required
meanwhile in the sum of $1,000.
Mr. White makes the following state
ment concerning the matter:
Mr. White's Statement.
Editors Herald — While having
less desire than any man to ob
trude my personal and private
affairs on the public, it is but just to
myself to correct with the truth the
! rather sensational articles in the city
j papers this morning concerning my fam
Were the facts as set forth in those ac
counts, I would not seek to justify nor
even excuse my conduct, whatever cir
cumstances of palliation there might be,
whatever circumstances to juetify the
heat of anger or the madness of rage.
The whole story in brief is this:
In some heated discussion with my
wife, who, unfortunately, is very ner
vous, she, with no good reason, became
: frightened and ran screaming from the
room. I ran after her, hoping to pre
i vent her from going out and alarming
! the neighborhood and disgracing her
i self and me. But she ran onto the lawn
; before I could catch her, and my efforts
to suppress her cries and get her back
into the house have been misconstrued
and tortured into the reports that are
In the struggle she fell onto the siitc
walk and thus injured her shoulder.
My effort to stop her cries was construed
no doubt by the onlookers, into a "chok
| ing." There was no "pistol exhibited"
and no one is more sorry then I that it
occurred. One thing is certain, that I
had no intention to hurt her and did
not strike her at all unless by accident.
Excited as I was and naturally anxious
to prevent this public scandal, I know
not what "wild whirling words" I ut
tered, as one might naturally, under
strong and unusual strain. How often
a molehill like this may lie magnified
into a mountain ! As to her apprehen
sions of further harm, all this is un
founded and comes from her unfortunate
nervous condition and imagination. No
man, however wise, can tell when such
calamities may befall him. The bottom
factß and remote causes of these unfor
tunate family jars the public should rec
ollect are hard to know, and without
such knowledge no man is justified in
censuring his fellow or judging him
No man can more lament than I this
unfortunate state of my affairs—no man
coild do more than I have to prevent
it Joining on. But we are all in the
funds of fate and must bend to the high
mtndates of our destiny, and who can
fo"etell for himself a good one. To the
piblic I say judge not harshly nor
lustily, but" judge justly. "Who art
tl»u, 0l man, that judgest another
mm's servant. To his own master he
slall stand or fall." That judgment I
an content to abide. Till then, all
trting time, to which I appeal and
wfich makes all things even, must set
me right "and do me tardy justice."
Respectfully. Clayton White.

Los Angeles, June 23, 1890.
Editors Herald—l notice an edi
[ torial paragraph in your issue of Sun
i day (the 23d) in which mention is made
I that there is an entire block or street in
the city which an enumerator has not
visited. It is possible that this is in one
lof the uncompleted city districts which
lit was necessary to grant an extension
! of time for finishing the enumeration in,
but I would be very glad if you would
say where it is that I may investigate
and get the population duly enumerated
in case it is found that any enumerator
i has been remiss in his work. You also
J speak of a restaurant in which there
j are sixteen persons not enumerated. If
! I can get the name of this restaurant I
j will send a clerk there and get the
I names, but it is more than likely they
have been counted "where they sleep,"
which is where the census must be
! taken. I enclose a copy of the census
j law and beg to invite your attention to
section 9of the same. This makes it
lawful for an enumerator to get names
and such information as he can from
landlords, neighbors and others, so that
many times when persons think they
have been missed they have in reality
been taken, and as population is the vi-
S tal point, the various questions on the
I schedules are not in every instance ab
j solutely answered correctly. I find in
I the case of persons writing to or calling
on me about having not been visited by
an enumerator, that in nearly eve rv

accurate census, and any aid you can
render in that direction will be highly
Yours, very truly,
L. E. Mosher,
Supervisor of Census.
[We take great pleasure in giving Mr
Mosher the information asked for in the
foregoing. One of the streets which had
been altogether slighted when we wrote
was Clover street, East Los Angeles.
The restaurant we referred to was Jerry
Illich's, although some days have passed
and his employees may since have been
enumerated. Of course, as Mr. Mosher
suggests, they may have been caught by
the census taker from information de
rived from neighbors, which is permissi
ble under the law. We will add an in
stance which has come under our ob
servation. Dr. Ainsworth lives at the
Hotel Westminster and has an office in
the Hollenbeck. The enumerator took
the name of his partner, Dr. Lasher,
and refused to take that of Dr. A.
because the latter did not live in the
Hollenbeck. At the Hotel Westminster
the enumerator declined to take the
name of the doctor because he said his
duty was to confine his list to the pro
prietor and employees of the hotel.—
why did he go?
A St. Louis Merchant's Trip to the Poit
olllce, and the Result.
California's last pi :iion is Deginning to
take hold of St. Louis. J. y. g. Barrett, the
commission merchant of 122 and 124 North
Commercial Street, was one of the first to test
Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla iv sick headaches.
Its effect was such a gratifying surprise that he
went over to the postoffice and told his friend,
Thos. P. Culkin, the superintendent of the
' registry division, who was also worried with
J headaches, about it. The following letter de
! ! tails his friend's experience also: —
Postoffice, St. Louis, Feb. 20,1890.
' J. V. 8. Barrett, Esq.: —
Dear Sir: You ask me. Did I act on your ad-
I vice? I did, and am glad to have to thank you
! for it For years I have suffered from indiges
> tion and headaches. Taking your advice, I pur
' i chased a bottle of Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla.
i > Before I had finished the first bottle I could eat
\ almost anything with impunity, and have been
] since rarely troubled with a headache of any
! kind, for which I give due credit to your ad
vice and Joy's Vegetuble Sursaparilla.
