No lla«l* Fonnd for the Serious Chare**
Recently Ylade Against Dr. Hs
e*u— Th- Case Promptly
during the pact three weeks the daily
papers of Log Angeles have published
many and varied articles on tbe alleged
mismanagement of tbe county hospital,
under the charge of Dr. Hagan. These
reports emanated from a charitable soci
ety composed of ladies known as the
Kings Daughters. The duties poculiar
to this society are comprised in visiting
the county hospital and alleviating the
sufferings of its inmates by nureiag and
many kindly little attentions. Since
Dr. Hagan took charge of the hospital
the society has boen dissatisfied with his
management, and their displeasure cul
minated last week in the presentation to
the board of supervisors of a number of
serious charges of cruelly to patieuts
and general mismanagement.
Yesterday morning an investigation
was held at the county hospital before
Supervisors Forrester, Hanley, Francisco
and Cook, and a committee from the
Kings Daughters, composed of Mrs.
Hamilton, Mrß. Landt, Mrs. Potts and
The proceedings, which were charac
terised on tbe part of the Kings Daugh
ters by considerable animosity, resulted
in a complete refutation of the charges
alleged, no confirmatory* proof of any
kind whatsoever being adduced, and
ending in the complete and utter dis
comfiture of the persons bringing the
mbs, Hamilton's papers.
The proceedings were commenced by
Mrs. Hamilton, who displayed a formid
able roll of papers, from which she
proceeded to read the following accusa
Tbe lady declared that the various
wards were kept in a disgustingly dirty
and filthy condition. Ward 8, she said,
bad only been cleaned once in two
montbs. The nursery was always dirty,
and was cleaned by patients unable from
weakness to perform the work expected
of them. Ward 9 was not cleaned for
four weeks. Wards 14 and 15 were only
mopped once from March 16th until
May 15th, ward 15 being in constant
The second charge was that the sani
tary condition of the building was bad.
One of tbe water-closets in tbe Women's
ward occasionally overflowed, dripping
through the floor on to the beds of the
male patients below.
The next allegation was that the hot
water hao been cut off for three days at
a time rendering it impossible for pa
tients to bathe.
DOCTOR HAGAN'b REPLY.
Dr. Hagan rose in answer, and proved
by Dre. Murphy and Poßt that the
wards named by the lady had been al
ways kept in proper condition, it was
true that a closet had once overflowed,
but it had since been repaired, and
never, at any time, bad the water
soaked through on to the beds below as
alleged. Tbe hot water had only been
cut on in one ward, where the patients
were too aick to make use of it.
This was corroborated by the- nurse in
charge of the ward and tbe patients
themselves. Dr. Hagan protested against
such a malicious distortion of tbe facts.
Mrs. Hamilton also stated that pa
tients were compelled to leave before be
ing cured, and named a Mrs. Briggs as
an example. Dr. Hagan rose and stated
that the woman had left of her own free
will, althougu he had advised her to re
main until thoroughly well. Dr. Mur
phy corroborated Dr. Hagan'i etate
This was the first blood to the doctor,
and his assailants were somewhat dis
counted, Mrs. Landt remarking:
'•Why didn't you tell us that, sir, in
stead of calling us liars in the evening
Continuing, Mrs. Hamilton said that
men and w men were both refined ad
mission to tbe hospital when entitled on
account of sickness, and she declared
her intention of citing an instance of
th s treatment she had heard; which
remark, by the bye, introduced each of
her charges, that a man named Brown
had brought an old soldier to the hospi
tal for admission, the old man being ex
ceedingly weak and ill, and she had
heard that he had been refused admis
sion. Here tbe ladies looked knowingly
at one another and felt that they had
scored a point.
In answer to this Dr. Hagan replied
that brown came to the hospital and
said he had a friend in tha country who
was sck and poor. Brown was told to
apply to the board of supervisors for an
order; but he (Dr. Hagan) re
marked that it was a pity to
put an old soldier into a
pauper hospital and suggested that be
be sent to the soldiers' home. The man
insisted, however, ayl Dr. Hagan sent
a conveyance for the old soldier, and
detailed his own eon to accompany the
ambulance. These facts were corrob
orated by Dr. Murphy, who declared
that no deserving person had ever beeu
This was a second knockdown blow.
Mrs. Landt didn't bave anything to say
this time, and Mrs. Hamilton continuid
with a perceptible decrease of confi
Another man, she said, had been dis
charged from the hospital before ho had
recovered from his sickness. This man,
one Saunders, she stated, died a few
days afterwards as a result of hiß dis
Hr. Hagan again rose and protested
against the ladies bringing such charges
on mere hearsay evidence. Saunder, be
said, bad insisted on leaving. He was
a Bufferer from dyspepsia, and when he
left, the doctors considered him weli
enough to go out. After he left it was
discovered that he had drunk a teacup
ful of sand mixed with dough, under
the impression that it would cure bis
malady. From the eflecte of this he
iied. This f:tct was corroborated by
Drs. Murphy and Post, and also by sev
iral patients in the same ward who saw
bim take tbe sand.
IUFERVIBOB FORRESTER TAKES A HANI)
Supervisor Forrester then interposed
and said that with all deference to the
ladies he thought that they ought no.
to bring such charges without witnesses
to prove the truth of their statements
He would ask if they had any such cvi
The ladies admitted that they could
h ing no witnesaes; they had only what
they had heard for proof.
Mrs. Hamilton's next eh irge was that
there were not enough nurses for the
number of patien'e She said she be
lieved there was only one for the whole
Dr. Hagan replied by reading the
names of 1-1 women who. were the nurses
The food was the next subjsct investi
gated. The l*di»s said that tbe tea was
poor, the soup had, the meat tough aud
also that duck's eggs were given to the
patients instead of hen's eggs.
THK TEA KPIS IDS
Supervisor Forrester Oere took an oar
him-elf. He said that he had been in
the grocery business himself for some
time and knew what tea was. He had
been In the habit of receiving bide for
the groceries supplied the hospital, and
had tasted the tea provided. He con
sidered it aa good as any he used him
self at home.
"Doesn't it cost only 15 cents a pound,
Mr. Forrester?" inquired Mis. LanOt.
"No, madam; it doesn't. It costs 25
cents a pound," answered the super
"Well, the cook must have made the
tea badly," said Mrs. Landt.
Dr. Hagan' remarked that tbe same
cook had been employed for two years
and no complaints had ever been he rd
before. As to tbe duck eggs, the doctor
said a few had been used in the eggnogg
given the patients, but only hen's egga
were served to patients for eating.
Dr. Murphy supported this s atement,
and said that hundreds of hen's eggn
were provided every month.
WINE AND WUISKV.
Mrs. Landt made tbe next effort, and
said that the patients had been cut off
their wine and whisky for 'days at a
time. She was sure the poor sick people
must have felt it very much. They all
Dr. Hagan, supported by Drs. Poßt
and Murphy, declared the statement
absolutely false. The whiskey at one
time ran out and for one day only none
was given out. Dr. Hagan added that
he did not propose to give spirits to
every man or woman who asked for it.
Tbe stimulant often did more harm than
Supervis ir Forrester then asked Mrs.
Landt if she could bring any witnesses
who wonid state that the sick bad been
deprived of necessary stimulants.
Mrs. Landt thought hard, and at laßt
said that one man had told her so.
When asked to produce him she reluc
tantly admitted that her witness was
Supervisor Forrester suggested that
possibly the ladies had paid too much
attention to unfounded rumors, and
said be thought it would have been
wiser to go to Dr. Hagan in the first
place, and then if they found he wonld
not listen to reason to get their proofs,
and make their charges. Mrs. Landt
t.tien lost her temper and began a per
sonal discussion witb Dr. Hagan. She
accused him of csl ing her elf and her
friends untruthful, and Supervisor For
rester once more had to pour oil on tbe
troubled waters. "Am Ito understand
you call us liars, Dr, Hagan?" asked
"Well madame, I will call in misrep
resentation," said Dr. Hagan.
On!"ejaculated Mrs Hamilton.
"And we are still liars," murmured
THE INVESTIGATION ENDED.
This concluded the investigation.
Supervisor Forrester rose, and remarked
that he thought there was no need to go
any further. He was satisfied of the
good intentions of the ladies who had
brought tbe charges, but he was of the
opinion that they bad placed to
much faith in unreliable statements
made to them by dissatisfied patients
and other people. He thought that if
tbe ladies had the welfare of the hos
pital at heart, that it would have been
very much better to have told Dr. Hagan
of the complaints instead of doing as
they had done He was sure Dr. Hagan
was doing and would do all that lay in
his power to promote the well being of
the hospital. In regard to tbe state
ment in an evening naper, purportingto
emanate from Dr Hagan, to the effect
that the ladies who brought tbe charges
were untruthful, he (M r . Forrester) was
sure that Dr. Hagan bad done no more
than characterise the statements only,
as lies. For that he could not blame
him. In conclusion,' Supervisor For
rester said that he thought the ladies
had better drop the matter; he would
advise them in future to work with Dr
Hagan, who, he was certain, would al
ways meet them half way in any sug
gestion which would tend to improve
At the conclusion of his summary
the four ladies looked blankly at one
another, and Mrs. Hamilton remarked:
"I think we had better go," a sugges
tion which was immediately acted upon.
THE BUILDING INSPECTION.
The supervisors, accompanied by the
reporter, then made a thorough inspec
tion of the building. Tbe first places
visited were tbe various wards. The
reporter foufid everything clean as a
new pin, and on questioning the pa
tients was told that everything was per

we are thoroughly well treated. It ain't
no Palace hotel, but it's plenty good
enough for me, and a darned eight bet

Another man said that the food waa
tiret rate, and that he bad more than
enough to eat.

15 pounds since he came in a few weeks
ago, and although the reporter ques

The Clever Work I) me by a Young
I) tective r*rom Oregon.
An Amateur Vldooq Who rerreied
Out the Mystery or the Burning ur
the School 11 .use at La
• Canada Last March.
Lemuel Veilex, s boy 15 years old, was
belore Justice Bartholomew yesterday
upon the charge of arson, and was held
On the night of March 16th last the
school house at La 0 iitda was bunted.
The fire was evidently of incendia y
origin, and there was a vigorous attempt
to locate tbe perpetrator.
After considerable inquiry, however,
the people of the neighborhood gave up
tua settled down to the cultivation oi
their fruit ranches.
A few days ago a young man, who had
been quietly living out in the valley for
several weeks, working for Mr Lsnter
man, developed into a full fledged detec
tive, and »wore to a complaint charging
young Voiles, son of a reputable tancli
er in the vicinity, with having set the
school h use on tire for the purpose of
avoididg going to school.
The bo, was anested, and the event
caused considerable of a sensation in the
peaceful La Cafhda valley. He was
brought to the city and the examina
tion into tbe charge occupied the entire
afternoon before Justice Bartholomew.
The testimony ehc ted quite a strange
story, and proved very strong against
the boy, quite a nice loosing little fel
low, who appeared to observe the pro
ceedings with a coolness beyond bis
The detective, who is only 19 years
old, went by the name of T oiy Port in
the valley, but gave hia rea. name aa O.
H. Clement, end his home aa Salem,
Ore., where he said his father is vice
president of a bank.
His work supplied the entire basia of
the caee, and resulted in confessions by
tbe boy that he set the school hou on
fire—confessions which were not at first
believed, until tbe young detective, with
a brightness which seemed remarkable
in such a boyish fellow, formed a com
plete net work about the defendant.
He saw the notice of the tire n a Los
Angeles paper a short time after it oc
curred, and when he had been in the
city only a few days. He went out to
La C fit.la to see if there waa any re
ward offered, and finding t iere waa, se
cured a place on Mr. Lautermtn'a ranch.
He formed the acquaintance of the bova
in the neighborhood, and ingratiated
nimself into their confidence. He
worked patiently along gathering little
points, and the defendant became very
confidential with him He and another
boy had long talks with him, and tbe
young detec ye, regaied them with
stories of robber.ea he bad committed,
until the boy told bim all about how he
had fired tbe school bouse.
He stole some coal oil out of the school
house at recess time, and went back at
night to commit his incendiarism, but
thinking he heard some one coming, an
away. He went back the next night,
ponred the oil on the b ick steps of the
school house, get it on fire and scurried
for home. There he tried to read, waited
for the school bouse to burn, which it
fina'ly did, and was among those who
m to the tire and wondered who couid
have done it.
All these things young Clement pa
tiently verified. He pretended to be in
a plan with the boy to run away from
home and commit crimes In order to
be provided, be induced Veilex to bring
him all tbe ke a he could obtain, so
they could go through trunks. Among
the keys he ohtained one in this manner
to the back door of tbe school house,
which had been stolen by the boy.
Finally be told Mr. Ltuterratn what
he had ascertained, and a plan was ar-
ranged by which D. J Green and ,fes»e
Knight, two, ranchers, could bear Veilex
confess. The plan worked to a charm,
and while secreted behind a hedge they
head tbe boy go over all tbe circum
stances of his crime.
The witnesses lor the prosecution cor
roborated Clement's statements. He
was put through a severecross-examina
tion by Will D. Gould, who appeared for
the d-ien c, but turned the tables on
bim in a quiet way that w s mnu-ing.
Mr. Gould asked him minutely about
hia I'd ■ and how he happened to go to
LaCifitda. He replied that he had
been iiirected to Mr (i uld'a ranch by
some one, and while inquiring hia way
of Mr Lanterman the latter told him he
cou d tied better places than that, and
did not give Mr. Gouid a very good repu
The attorney did not relish the re
marks ot tbe witness, and asked h m if
ne had nottheday betoretold Mr Veilex
hat he ought not to put in any detenpe,
Hid that he ougot not to employ Mr.
Guild to defend his eon.
V oung Clement, gave a quiet sort of
laugh, and said that he did have a con
vereation with Mr. Veilex nn Sunday, in
which be givea message which a gentle
man had sent by him, that if he em
ployed Vlr. Gould to defend hi-t son, the
attorney would get hold of all hie prop
erty beiore the case whs ended
This was another broadside, and \Tr.
Gould became very earnest iv his en
deavura to rind out who the gentleman
vas who sent the message, but tbe wit
ness declined o say, and the court would
iot order him to tell.
After the preeentatiin of the testi
uonv of the prosecution the defense
would nut put in any evidence, and hi -

A New Chapter In the Los Angelea
111 ver Controversy-The Men Ar
retted Fall to Material ze as
They Had Promised.
Another chapter has been added to the
history of the Vernon-Compton water
war. The last incident reported was the
holding up of two deputy sheriffs and
four Vernon ranchers by 50 masked men
with shotgnns, who tore down the dam
built by the Vernon men, and con
structed one of their own, turning the
river into a new channel.
The deputy Bhenffa a'tempted to serve
injunctions on the masked men, but
were warned to desist on pain of being
shot. One deputy sheriff, who attempted
to tear the mask from the face of one of
the gang, was struck over tbe head with
the but' end of a revolver, after which
the gang hal it all their own way.
Thiß occurred a month ago. Since
then Constable Rogers has been working
on the case night and day in tbe en
deavor to find out who the men were
who composed the crowd. After some
time one of the gang came to the con
atahle and told the whole story.with the
reault that the conatable arrested eight
men yesterday, and holda warrants for
three more The names of those ar
rested are as follows: Larkin Snod
grass, a capitalist, who owns a large
amount of property at Compton, and has
a tine residence on Washington street;
J, D. Sherman, 0 Fisher, J Lucra, J.
Abbott, G. Meal. J. Wilcott and J. Neale
Warrants are out for R. Soodirrass and
R Kincaird. After their arrest ttie men
agreed with Constable Rogers to meet
bim at the court h.uae last evening at 6
•o'clock, where arrangements were made
with Justice B-irtholomew to isane bail
bonds, Saodgrass having declared hi
willingnesa to go on the bonds of the
eight men. Justice Barth domew waited
at the court house until 8 o'clock but
none of the men appeared, and he wait

OUR HEALTH IS GOOD.
The Death Hates Shows a Moat Pleasant j
Loa Angeles seems to be iv a fair way
to escupe the chtdera or any other I
scourge, if the mortality reports which
have been recei/ed at the health office
continue to show a corre»oondiug reduc
tion of deaths per month throughout
tbe coming summer, which thir, mouth
slums over the one juat pact. Iv April
87 reaidents of this city were bori.e to
their last resting place Up to date,
h iwever, during the coming month only
47 deaths have been reported, but thie
leaves eight dava of tbe month yet to be
accounted for, still the health officers
Bay, hi range as it may seeiu, that deaths
towards the latter part of a mouth al
waya exceed those taking place during
the lint part, and this figure may be
Last month 23 people died of con
sumption who were not residents of this
city a year. This hrings another fea
ture into conaideration. During those
months in which eastern visitors and
invalida come to Loa Angeles the death
rates ia proportionately larger. At this
season of the year eastern people are re
turning to their homes and are taking
their eick back with them, consequently
there are fewer people left here to die
this mouth than last and that reason to
a great extent acconnta for tho rapid de
creaee in the number o! deaths
At the health office the opinion was
expressed that all the consumptives
were going to the world's fair and prob
ably intended to awell the mortuary list
of Chicago. The fact remaina, however,
that the eanitary condition of Los Ange
les at the present time ia. better than
ever before and from present appear
ances will continue to improve.
