Singled out as the Mecca for the masses
of unemployed," said a prominent Los
Anaeles official yesterday.
"Tho latch string haa ever swung
loose r,n California's portals for all com

tiferous Chinese. But the situation to
day is a grave one, for the Btate is daily
being crowded by a vast hurtle, wlm,
driven from their lormerabodes by over
shadowing hunger und want, come with
the hollow and irreatible cry, 'bread and
work'—willing enough to work if they

numerous bread phalanx preßeuta a

ing upon the citizen whose supply of
human kindnessis hourly being strained
to its limit, As a rule it is neither
charitable or correct to class the major
ity of tbeae new comers as tramps, for
they ask work beforo they ask for bread.
Tbat there are numbers of efficient
workmen among them iv every avoca
tion, there can be no doubt, for they fol
low their inn a and seek employment
from those of our citizens who are en
gaged in them. This at least is proof
of theiy industrious intentions. It ia a
pity tbat such men can't tind abundant
work here, where tbey could free them
selves from the association of that large
class of professional 'bunie' aud dead

continued the speaker, "to be any more
considerate of the genus tramp than
any other eection of the country, but at
the same time she is regardful of all

the superfluous men of this
class, and in the effort not to turn
them away, eWeet contracts and other
public improvements were let in ad
vance up into huudreds of thousands of
dollars, but it was soon seeu that it waa
not possible to provide labor for even
one-half of thoee who were willing to
do any kind of work for a living. The
world's fair is about to close and the
surplus muscle and yawning maws of
Chicago, along with thousands of indua
trious minerß in the silver hills of Colo
rado and elsewhere are seeking reiuge
in the Golden state.
"A few days ago a hundred able
bodied men, all in the prime of life,
fairly well clothed, arrived here from
San Francisco. They were an orderly
lot, and went direct to police head
quarters and aekod to be directed to the
various places to which they were fitted

answer tbem, for he was Sware ttiat

alreody overcrowded. • •' "Js.'wl

teel looking young fellow, "some of ns
have not bad a mouthful to eat for 24
hours, and a cup of water and piece of
bread would be a Godsend to most of
these men, including uiyßelf. We are
not tramps; we are miners from Colo
rado, and we went to 'Frisco hoping to
find work. We could not do so, it was
not there, for there are are ten men
there for every one needed on the mid
winter fair structures, and be could get
nothing to do from tbe city on the

were 700 of ub there in tbe fix *te are in

pable and willing to do any kind of work
in order to live. We are willing, sir, to
take brooms and sweep tho streets
either by night or day, because we are
hungry, famishing and have no money."
Chief Glass asked very few questions
from the spokesman of the 100 hungry
new arrivals; was sorry that he did not
have something for them to do, or could
get it for them.

The Plumbing Ordinance Overhauled —

double and twisted steel band, aa the
twenty-aecond section of the plumbing
ordinance will show. Read it:

"A combine waa nip.de for the purpose

supreme court, in which the judgment
ol the lower court was sustained. The
matter waa then cairied to the court of

Thia decision should warn combines
of their poaition, when they trample
upon people's rights to enhance their
selfish greed of gain. In the opinion of

DIDN'T KNOW HER FATHER.
A Startling Kevt.latlnn Mad* In
Amelia Earre was the plaintiff in a
case for damages vestenlay is Justice
Bartholomew's court. She brought
by her guardian, Mrs. Fannie
Thurston, to recover some of the valu
ables given Iter by Mr. Barre, whom
the girl took to be her father.
It seems that the girl's mother, now
Mra. I'ernot, after her second marriage,
according to the testimony given, abused
Amelia because she would not call I'er
not "papa." Tbe daughter, by reason
ot such abuee, was obliged to leave the
home of the I'crnots, and has since been
in charge of Mrs. Thurston. The
mother testified that Barre was not the
father of Amelia, and this was received
with surprise by the little crowd in the
courtroom, who were familiar with the
life of the parties to the act-on. Tbe
statement fell with a heavy blow noon
poor Amelia, who bad always believed
that Barre was her rightful father, he
having always treated her with the con
sideration of such. When her attorney
questioned her about it on tbe witness
stand her grief was pitiful to behold, aa
she eaid, between her lobl as the tears
trickled down her cheeks, that she
never before knew tbat Mr. Barre was
not her papa.
Judgment was rendered for $215 in
favor of tbe plaintiff.
