THEY ARE AFTER THE CHINESE.
lnj Ffdprfttuf. Ti-ulps to Act

Complaints Against Cliinessi to B>
j Sworn Ou,t Today.
a Cotrnnltt-s to Appear Before iTnlted
Stat*. District Attorney Denis
Xhi» MoVnlng— V* hit Tliey
Propose to Do.; 'I (ti .' r'l t
Just nine days have elapsed since the
United States supreme court declared
tho Geary act to be constitutional.
Since then many articles have been
written and speecheß made On the ques
tion, pro anil con, but no action taken
to enforce tlia the law. It remains for
Los Angeles to take the Initiative in
this reepect. This will be done today.
A committee will appear before United
States Dstriot Attorney Denis tbia
morning at 10 o'clock and swear out
warrants against a large number of
Chinamen for being in this country
without certincatei of registration, and
it is needless to state that the majority
of them will he found venting.
The action has its birth with the
council of federated tradeß. | S A
The legislative committee of the coun
cil recently came to the conclusion that
neither the president of the United
States nor any of the cabinet officers
had any right to suspend the enforce
ment of the Geary act, so adopted a plan
of action in regard to the aituation in
this city. They claim that there are
over 20 restaurants employing Chinese
cooks, and many have frequently dis
charged white men to put Chinese in
their places. The committee decided to
awear out warrants against all ot these
Mongolian cooks and tbe Chinese cigar
makers as well. Legal advice was
taken on the matter.
This plan was presented to the council
of federated trades last Sunday night,
and win adopted by that body, whjcir;
ip.'meted the legislative committee to
go ahead with the work.
The committee have been investigating
the si.mii >n for several days past, and
have spotted tbe majority ot the Chinese
cooks in white restaurants; and trave
not forgotten the cigarmakera eitbejyHf
is claimed tbat the white cooks
are thrown out of employ
ment by these Chinese, who
underbid them in wages. The. Commit
tee propo-e to stand by their move and
announce themselves as prepared to.
follow the matter to the end.
John Cbinamin, when he reads his
paper this morning and finds this very
Ui.w news staring bim in tbe
face, will begin to think that Los Ange
les is not such a nice place after all.
The chances arfe that if the cooks read
the HuiiAi.ii today they will desert their
....... . k. rni^hrjrl.
in the lurch and unable to get breakfast
for the morning patrons.
The outcome of this action by the
Federated Trades today will be watched
with much interest, as it "is probably
the first definite attempt in the country
to enforce the Geary act. •
As to how United States District At
torney Denis will regard the proposition,
is not exactly known, but if he should
need any legal assistance in prosecuting
the matter, the Federated Trades will
probably supply it.

Fred Andrews, who, the police claim,
is a notorious "mac," opium fiend, and
bad character generally, was on trial
for burglary, and the paint pots, etc.,

A SAD-IRON HEATING ROMANCE.
Dr. Ftoyd Instead of Mirryiii";
Is in Worse Trouble.
He Is Charged Willi Obtaining Money
Under False Pretenses.
A Mr Klnirof Bedondo firings the Com
plaint—A Hanta Crna Paper

"L'honame propose, Diau dispose."
Dr. E. Floyd proposed n. be married
today, but destiny whispered "no," and
tbe would-be bridegroom at present oc
cupies a cell in the county jail. Dr. E.
Floyd has Btruck a snag through his pe
culiar manipulation oi "a sad-iron beat
ing apparatus," and he is in jtil because
be was unable to give the $500 bond re
quired oi him by Justice liar holomew,
before whom he appeared yesterday on
a charge of obtaining money under false
pretenses from J. M. King of Redondo
Floyd, it is charged, succeeded in ille
gally transferring $72 to his own pocket
which in December, 1892, belonged to
Floyd said his one ambition in life was
to make King's fortune. He declared
be had the sole rights to the patent ot a
sad-iron heating apparatus. He had, he
said, obtained the aforesaid patent from
the original owner, J. M. Wisnart Ttie
desired effect was produced, and King
put up $72, iv exchange for Which the
doctor gave him a document purporting
to sell bis entire interest in tbe patent.
After developments convinced King
that Dr. Floyd had played him a very
slick trick, aud that he had no patent
whatever to sell, also that he was not
the owner of any "sad-iron heating ap
paratus " He even goes so far as to say
tbat Dr. Flo-.d swindled him, and de
clares he a-ill invoke the full vengeance
of tbe law. The doctor was arrested on
this complain yesterday, and arraigned
before Justice Bartholomew, who fixed
hia examination for May 27th.
The Santa Cruz Daily Surf baa some
thing to say about the "doctor" which
is interesting to those who are acquaint
ed with him. be story is aa follows:
"A largo number of business men and
others of this city have lately become
well acquainted with the portly figure of
a (risky patent-right man, who ia known
aa 'Doc' Floyd.
' Floyd had the patent of a self-heating
flatiron, wbich be made numerous' at
tempts to dispose of, but after a week's
hard work, meeting with no success, he
gave up in disgust and decided to spend
tbe balance of bis time making violent
love to a dashing young widow of this
city. In tbe role of a lover be was more
of a success than in that of a business
man, for he succeeded so well that they
were to bs married today. A slight a -
teration, however, in his movements
was necessary, on account of the sudden
appearance of Deputy Sheriff Kearney
of Los Angeles, who came with a war
rant for his arrest on a charge of ob
taining money under false pretences.
"Floyd's life in Los Angeles was tbat
pf a professional all-round sport. He is
said to have married a certain woman
of that town only a few months ago.
"When Dr. E. Floyd, M. D., was ar
rested he paid a visit to his intended
wife, and giving her his watch and
chain, together With about $70, told ber
to keep the valuables until he returned,
adding tbat he waß 'all right.' "
A City of Homes.
One cannot have a nobler aipiration
than tbat of making a home forhis fam
-1 Hy. It seems to be the ambition of An
gelefios to own his place of residence, to
he, in fact, the proprietor of his own
castle. Barely nothing could be more
commendable, and it truly speaks well
for the people that comooae toe popula
tion of Loe Angeles. Until recently it
has been rattier difficult for many to
bring this about, aud to a great extent
it has been nearly impossible, owing to
tbe high price of property, unless one
went a long way out, which necessitated
consuming much time going and com
ing, also Targe expense in traveling to
town where most have their business or
employment. Tbed again it has been
very expensive to build on account of
the high price of lumber. Now the cir
cumstances are decidedly more favor
able, for lumber is far cbeaptr iban ever
before in thie city, which is a great item
to the prospective home maker.
But what is more important than all
others is this fact: Yon will have an
opportunity through the owners of the
famous "Wolfskill tract" to buy very
desirable home sites at your own prices

Arthur Tanner, who has just come
out from four months' treatment at tbe
county hospital, called at the Hkrald
office last night and said that tbe
charges made by the King's Daughters
were substantially trne.
He was in tbe hospital for an abscess
on his foot, and lost two of his toes by
reason thereof. Tanner was very con
servative in bis description of the con
dition and management of the hospital,
and did not appear to have any personal
grievance, stating, in fact, tbat he had
been treated very well while in tho hos
His strictures were more in the nature
of lack of proper facilities and food for
the treatment of patients than com
plaints of a personal nature.
In regard to the charge .that patientß
were ordered away from the hospital be
fore they were well, he said that he had
known of seven instances of the kind
while he wae there, tie could remem

Tbe sanitary condition of the hospital,
he claimed, was bad. The hot water is
turned off for four days iv the week. In
case patients come in during the night,
there is no hot water for bathing them
at all at night, and even in the day time
it has to be brought clear from the
The food,. Mr. Tanner contended, was
bad, except dinner, which was reasona
bly good, although there was an unend
ing round of beef and no change in the
bill of fare day in and day out.
Breakfast consists regularly of oat
meal and milk, leavings from other
tables served up as steak, and coffee
which is so only in name.
Supper is about the same, oatmeal
and milk, served on a plate with cooked
dried apples, some kind of a hash and
The bi)l of fare given is regular, and

Speaking nf tbe treatment of patients,
Tanner stated that it was kind, and he
paid Mr. Jap, the chief nurse, a high
compliment in this particular. Patients
who are convalescent are expected to
assist in tbe nursing.
Tbe beds he said are not what they
should be. They are spring beds with
a bair mattress of some kind on top,
and in many of the beds in tbe surgical
ward, where Tanner was, the hair had
worked away from the middle so that
patients naturally rested on the springs.

be a very kind man for all he knew/but
that scarcely any of the patients had

rarely came around at night to see the
patients and their condition, as Dr.
Brainard used to do.
Mr. Tanner referred to one fact, that

two months, but has now been cleared
If tbe supervisors had ever called at
the hospital he did not know it; at any
rate tbey had not come in the surgical

In regard to whether special prepara

whether patients who make complaints
are bulldozed, Mr Tanner said he h»d
