THE OFFICIAL CITY PAPER.
THURSDAY, FBIiRUAKY 16, 1803.
Mb. Cudahy, of packing house fame,
in securing the old Nadeau ranch, has
gathered in a property which will yield
him ducats galore.
The alfilerilla covers our mesas and
pastures to a height of a foot or more.
This lush grass is indigenous to South
ern California and is one of the best
dairy foods in the world. It frequently
grows, even on the hills, to a height of
three feet or more, and this is one oi the
years in which it will do wonders.
No better evidence of the disintegra
tion which has overtaken the Repub
lican party in the northwest could be
given than the fact that the Populist
governor of Kansas is about to call out
the militia to put down the insurgent
members of the g. o. p. Politics is at a
white heat in this old-time center of

Mb. Cleveland is pledged to give the
country a bnsinesß administration. This
probably will not prevent the appoint
ment of a bnsiness-like first assistant
postmaster-general, who will see that
the offensive partizans of the Republican
party shall receive their walking papers,
after the manner of Adlai E. Stevenßon
when he filled that post.
One of the eccentricities of the present
year is that while Las Angeles county
has had a most abundant rainfall the
region around Perris and Tulare and
Fresno counties have had scarely a nor
mal precipitation. Fortunately the two
counties named have magnificent sys
tems of irrigation, wbich make them
measurably independent of toe weather
Affairs at Topeka are now assuming
a very belligerent shape. The Republi
can members of the assembly have cap
tared by force the legislative chambers,
which had been in possession of the
Popnlists. Governor Lewelling has
calied oat the militia, and the Republi
j cans have called on their partisans all
I over Kansas to come to their assistance.
'There ia a good chance for a serious col
lision the way things now look.
1 There are 890 bills on the files of the
•house and as many more in the senate,
"yet tbe legislature has only fifteen days
more to Bit before the per diem of mem
bers ceases. There is talk in the capitol
about extending the session for a month ;
bnt experience has shown that about a
week of service without pay generally
tires the legislature of its gratuitous
work, and an adjournment speedily fol
lows. Bat few bills, and none of gen
eral importance, have as yet gone to the
governor. The business of both houses
is as greatly in arrear as it ever was at
bo late a day in the session, and we may
now look out for hasty legislation. Yet
the present legislature, take it all in all,
is the best, morally and intellectually,
we have had for many years. The fact
.is that no legislature can get through
with the business of a session in sixty
days, and do it well. The people, how
ever, by vote at the last election, refused
to extend the term, so we shall have to
get along as well aa we can with sixty
legislative days every two years.
As long as it pays we may look to Bee
successful pugilists transformed into in
different actors, and made to strut the
boards between fistic engagements.
Peter Jackson is the last accession the
stage has had from the P. R. Corbett
is "starring" it somewhere in the east,
and less noted fighters are playing to
crowded houaea in many of tbe provin
cial towns. These big burly bruisers
are taken in hand by a certain class of
theatrical managers who have less pride
in the dramatic profession than greed
for money; they are with great diffi
culty trained to walk the boards with a
passable swagger, and then the lines of
a part of some sensational drama, with
■ fight in it, are hammered into their
thick skulls and they are launched forth
as actors on a eulTaring community.
None of theae Druissrs are fitted either
by education or bent of mind to the pro
fession into which they are summarily
projected, and the drama suffers from a
practice that is gaining ground every
day. The poor actor, who has made tbe
study of hia art a labor of love, and who
has spent the best years of his life to
achieve success, has a right to complain
bitterly of this brutal innovation. He
deplores the fact that the standard of
art is being lowered and that his
chances for engagement are be
ing lessened by this reprehensi
ble departure, and he naturally
looks back with a kindly long
ing to the good old times when the stage
was trod by gentlemen of education, re-
finetnent and artistic ability. He must
feel a good deal like ths struggling coun
try journalist who sees every deadwall
and post in his town covered with flam
ing advertisements, whilst the mer
chants and others who are made rich by
his devotion to their interests in increas
ing the prosperity of their town are
doing all they can to impoverish him by
withdrawing their advertisements from
his paper and patronizing tbe bill poster.
The "seedy-genteel" actor may find a
consolation in the fact that he is not
alone in being "left" by the "degener
acy" of the times. All kinds of busi
nesses and professions are more or less
subjected to the inroads of the new pro
gression and the backsets of an age that
haß but little veneration for the paßt—

LET US RETURN TO REPUBLICAN SIM
PLICITY-A NEEDED CHANGE.
< It is just as well that the American
people should give passing notice to a
phase of official life at Washington
which has been brought to the fore
ground by Mr. Cleveland's efforts to get
a oabinet that will suit him. It is said
that the president-elect first tendered
the position of secretary of state to Mr.
Bayard, who held that portfolio under
the first Cleveland administration. The
Delaware statesman is alleged, on what
appears to be pretty good authority, to
have declined the office on the ground
that he was too poor to accept it; in
other words, that the secretary of state
is obliged to maintain a scale of per
sonal expenditure which Mb (Bayard'a)
purse could not afford. Thia action of
Mr. Bayard'a bringa very forcibly to
mind the fact that life at Washington
haa become frightfully expensive
of late years. It ia high time
that a reform in the line of gen
uine republican-democratic simplic
ity should be inaugurated at that
place. Mr. Cleveland's secretary of etate,
who has a number of accomplished
daughters, doubtless recalls with hor
ror what it costs to keep up the fashion
able pace in that whirlpool of dissipa
tion and folly. The case ia not ranch
improved when it comes to Judge Grea
ham, who seems to have accepted the
exalted poat that Mr. Bayard declined.
This distinguished gentleman is not sup
posed to be any better supplied with
this world's goods than Mr. Bayard.
But he ie not, at least, in tbe plight of
the burnt child that dreads the fire, and
then he may not have a fashionable
family. Discriminating people will pity
Judge Grresham when he geta an estab
lishment under way in Washington com
mensurate with the dignity of the secre
tary of state of the United States. To
borrow a popular phrase, he will have
to look two waya for Sunday when it
comes to entertaining foreign diplomats
and the dilettante of Washington society.
His salary will be a mere drop in the
And thiß brings us to a phase of the
matter which, in a republic, ought to be
restricted to the secretary of etate.
This official is expected to entertain
liberally. In this year of grace 1893
that necessarily means the expenditure
of large eums of money. Why should
this all come from the privy pufse of
the secretary? To insißt that it should
do so is to make it exigent that only
rich men should be appointed secretary
of state. We do not think that the
American people have yet reached that
stage. There ought to be a reasonable
sum appropriated yearly for the social
expenses of the state department. The
enhanced outlays of the White House
arising from the duty of entertaining
are met indirectly. There are many
special appropriations that amount
yearly to a very large sum, and which
practically leave the president in pos
session of his salary.
When, during Grant's first term, the
salary of the president was doubled,
being advanced from $25,000 a year to
$50,000, that of all the cabinet officers
should have been doubled, and the sec
retary of state should have been put on
the same footing of the president aa to
extras, on the distinct and tenable
ground that he ia necessarily put to
great expense in maintaining the dig
nity of hiß country, and that that posi
tion ought not to be forced into the
exclusive occupancy of rich men. The
people would approve the change.
A HINT FOR DISTRICT ATTORNEY DIL
Elsewhere in thia morning'a Herald
we print a letter from a gentleman who
eigne himself "A Legal Taxpayer," and
who ia a lawyer of great acumen and
learning. He does not take the dis
couraging view of the recovery of the
large sums of money taken from the
county by Banbury which we, in a mo
ment of despondency for the county
treasury, took yesterday. On the con
trary, he thinks that it is the duty of
the district attorney to sue at once for
this $4500 before any question of the
statute of limitations can arise on the
official bonds not only of the treasurer
but of the auditor, and of the Beveral
supervisors who joined in allowing the
unjust claims. Our correspondent also
suggests that it would be an excellent idea
toinquire of tbe state controller whether
Mr. Banbury has drawn the forty cents a
mile which the law allows him on the
supposition that he personally carried
the county moneys up to tbe etate treas
urer at Sacramento. We have no doubt
whatsoever as to what the answer of the
state controller will be to that question.
Meanwhile, the district attorney should
carefully read the article from "A Legal
Taxpayer" which appears elsewhere,
and initiate the suits needed to recoup
the county. We are convinced that he
will agree with our correspondent that
vigorous action on his part is necessary,
and that delays are dangerous. There
are other considerations in "A Legal
Taxpayer's" communication that are
worthy of Mr. Dillon's attention. The
truth ia that not only should Mr. Ban
bury be made to pay back the sums oi

It now appears as if Harrison were

a grand coup. He strongly favors the

ject. The treaty decided upon accom

into executive session to consider it. If
annexation is accomplished in this man
ner the popular branch of congress will
have nothing to say about the matter.
This is too important a subject to be dis
posed of in this secret way. Tho whole
country ought to have an opportunity to
have free expression upon this grave
question before it is placed by the
treaty-making power beyond the reach
A sixteen-ton pumping engine ia a
pretty big piece of work to be turned

Angeles is looking forward to the day
when she shall be cited aa a manufac

ginning to redden in the glowing dawn
of that day. There is no reason why
Arizona, lying at our very doors, should
not purchase her crushing, hoisting and
pumping machinery of Los Angeles, in
stead of Chicago and San Francisco;
and ''the inexorable logic of events"
will determine that question before an
other five years have rolled over us.
The County Can Recover the Banbury
Editors Herald : The taxpayers are
"with you" in your just effort to cover
the $4500 exchange money captured by
Banbury back into the county treasury.
You stated editorially yesterday that
it is "doubtful if the county can ever re
cover this money," on the theory that
the supervisors who allowed the claim
acted judicially in making the allow
ance; that this allowance became a
judgment which could only be set aside
within a certain time after the allow
ance and payment.
In this conclusion you were in error.
Our supreme court haa decided that
counties are not municipal, but are po
litical corporations. Tbe action of the
supervisors is mainly legislative, but in
auditing an account which ia a "legal
charge against the county," their action
is quasi judicial.
but iv Banbury's case the itema al
lowed him were not legal charges againat
the county. No law provides for any
such chargea. The compensation of the
treaiurer was fixed at a certain ealary
by the county government bill.
Section 3S6(> of the Political code
obliges the treasurer twice a year to pro
ceed to tbe etate capital and settle with
the etate controller, and "pay over in
cash" to the treasurer of tbe state all
funds due the state.
Section 3876 of name code provides
that the controller of etate allow tbe
treasurer mileage at the rate of 40 cents
per mile from the county teat to the cap
ital, as a compeuiation for making these
settlements and payments.
Query. Ask the controller if Banbury
got these allowances from the state in
addition to what he got out of the
county. If the allowance was one which
the board of supervisors was not em
powered to make, then their judgment
in so allowing same was a nullity. (See
People vs. Supervisors El Dorado coun
ty, 11 Cal., 175; also Linden vs. Oaee,
46 Cal., 174.)
It was clearly a matter for tbe state to
care for, and not for tbe county, and
the legislature covered the matter by
providing that the county treasurers
should be allowed mileage by the state
Tbe supervisors who made the allow
ance were bound to know, and did
know, that they acted without jurisdic
tion in allowing the claims.
The auditor should have refused to
draw warrants on such claims, for he
knew the demands were illegal. He ia
supposed to be the check between il
legal action by the board and the cash
in the treasury, and the supreme court
in the able opinion by Judge Temple in
the recent case of Merriam vs. the
Board of Supervisors, 72, Cal. 519, says
of the auditor in a similar case: 'The
auditor ought not to draw his warrant
for an illegal demand, even though al
lowed by the board, and if he does so
knowingly and wilfully he is personally
responsible, and may be made to refund
the money Urns illegally paid. The
same rule applies to the treasurer.
"The warrant drawn by the auditor
would be no excuse for the payment of
a claim known not to be a lawful
Then the district attorney is required
to look after the affairs of the county,
and it is his duty oi hia own motion to
commence suits to recover money ille
gally paid out (Pol. Code, sec. 4086;
County Gov. Act, sec. 8).
"The members of the board would
themselves be individually responsible
for moneys paid out wilfully without
authority of law. They are trustees of
the funds for certain specified purposes,
and cannot without violating their
oaths allow them to be applied to other
"They act judicially, it ia true, and
will not be held accountable for mere
errors, but they will not be excused on
the ground that they have acted hon
estly merely because they do not steal
the fund). If they wilfully appropriate
money for a purpose not authorized by
positive law, they are liable civilly and
Concluding. There being no law au
thorizing the allowance of tbe claims,
there was no judgment allowing them,
the act of allowance was a willful disre
gard of law, and all the officers partak
ing in or tainted with the spoliation are
liable on their official bonds therefor.
To make a sure shot on behalf of the
taxpayers and save this $4500 to them,
oar district attorney should sue at once,
before any question of statute of limita
tions can arise on thejofficial bonds, not
only of the treasnrer, but of the auditor
and the several supervisors who joined
in allowing the claim.
Vigorous action on the part of the
district attorney will win. delays are
dangerous. A Legal Taxpayer.

Portland, Ore., Feb. 15.—A frightful
accident occurred on the City and Sub
urban electric street railway, in Lower
Albina, at 3 o'clock this afternoon, in
which three persons were killed and a
dozen others seriously injured. As a
car was coming down the descent on
McMillan street the motorneer lost con
trol of the car, and it plunged at terrific
speed down the hill. It left the track
and went over on its aide with a tremen
dous craab. The car was crowded, there
being 45 passengers aboard, among
whom were 20 young people who consti
tuted the graduating class of the
Williams-avenue grammar school. The
momentum was so great that on leaving
the track the car was dashed to pieces.
The dead are: J. O. Denniß, a carpen
ter, aged 70 years; Bertram Dennis, hjs
son, aged 8 years.
Injured: I. T. Johnson, James Mene

broken and head cut badly by broken
glass; Miss Sallivan, assistant princi
pal of the Williams-avenue school,
broken arm; Miss Corey, serious brnises;
Mr. Ross, internal injuriee and head cut
badly ; his son, fractured wrist.

"I did all in my power to check the
momentum of the car, but the brakes
would not hold. The incline on McMil
lan street is very steep, and at this point
we are very cautious. I did all I could,
but found I could not Btop the car.
When we etruck the curve going into
Larabee street we were going at a pretty
good rate of speed. I was afraid we
would go over but stood by my brake
until the car turned on its side; then I
went into the car to help release the
Police Officer Davison, who was on the
front platform when the accident oc
curred, says: "I am satisfied that tbe
motorman in this case is entirely blame

not control his car."

Charles managed to restrain his tears,
and assumed a cheerful aspect in order
that bis father might not suspect the
truth. Charles introduced the detec

that had accompanied him from Paris,
and Ferdinand received them in as
much of his old debonaire fashion as his
decrepit condition and weakened facul
ties would permit. They all chatted to

Ferdinand invited the visitors to dine, a
privilege of which they would have

Ferdinand's mind still lingered on
the possibilities of the Panama canal,
and now and then he spoke optimisti

to his father's utterances on the sub
ject, bis remarks being of an erratic
character which indicated that the in
tellect of the veteran diplomatist and
engineer had lost its ancient strength.
When evening came Ferdinand again
embraced his son and expressed the
hope that he would soon see him again.
