The protest against the opening of
Griffes street lnt> Twenty-second
was taken up and denied on the report
of the city engineer.
A communication was read from the
commissioners for the opening of an al
ley from State to Bailey streets, Boyle
Heights, stating that one of the com
missioners, Mr. Clark, had failed to
qualify. On the request of Councilman
Blanchard the matter was Inid over for
one week for investigation.
The regular report of the manager of
the free labor bureau was received and
Councilman Toll mcvtd that the city
engineer be Instructed to present an
ordinance of intention to establish grade

Councilman Toll also moved that
Main street, between Thirty-seventh
and Vernon, and Washington street, be
tween Roseclale avenue and, Arlington
street, be roaded up sufficiently to over

roadway by being washed out andi cut
up Into ruts, the work to be performed
under the supervision of the superin

of the Rosedale annex fund. Adopted.
Councilman Hutchison moved that

street superintendent to supervise the
sweeping of Aliso street be ohangedl so
as to read that the matter of the sweep
ing of Aliso .street, from Alameda street
to the river, shall be under the super-
Vision of the health department.
This motion gave rise to considerable
discussion. The portion of the street re
ferred to is macadamized with porphyry
rock, and the cleaning of the same has
always caused trouble. It has always
been claimed, that It could not be swept
by the street sweepers, as are the as
phalt ar.d block pavements, for the rea»
son that the material would 1 be swept
away. During the administration of
Councilman! Savag l ? h>- seeuredl the pas
sage of an order directing that it he
swept by the street department by hand,
and Councilman Hutchison secured! the
passage of a similar order when he came
Jr.to office. This order, he says, has

It has been several months since any
thing has been said about the old Good
Hope mine, which in days gone by oc
cupied so'much attention In mining cir
cles and produced so much of the yel
low metal. A visit of your correspon
dent to this famous mine tells the story
of but little being said of the property.
In the first place, Morse, Griffith arid
Kgan completely wrecked the prop
erty In the eighteen months In which
they had control of It, after, with others,
purchasing It of J. M. Slgafue; In 1894.
for $4".0,000. The trouble was that the
parties to the transaction started in on
stealing from each other nnd let the
mine run Itself. Men now in the mine
who were working there during the
Morse-Grlfnth-Egan regime say that
they would work for weeks underground
without a foreman ever coming near
them, and as a natural consequence
would take rock easiest to be obtained
without regard to Its value to make the
necessary amount for their work and
hold their Jobs. In this way the elopes
and levels going off to the right anil
left of the main level were completely
filled up with debris. The mine, under
this management failed to pay. natural
ly, and finally went Into the hands of n
receiver und then into the possession of
Henry B. Johnson, an eastern capitalist,
who now has J. M. Slgafus. the fr.-mer
owner of the mine, as superintendent.
Mr. Sigafus says that not less than $100,
--000 damage was done the mine while
the combination was conducting It.
There are large bodies of ore which It
will be necessary to run a now level at
much expense to get at.
Griffith and George H. Maxwell, of
Los Angeles, negotiated the »ale of the
mine for Mr. Slgafus. Mr. Egan. who
haw since died, was sent here by the
eastern capitalists at a big salary as
their expert to examine the property.
He entered into a combination with
Griffith to put $150,000 onto the actual
price they could purchase the mine for
and take the amount in stock. Griffith
refused to pay Maxwell his proportion
of the commission for negotiating the
sale of the mine and brought suit to
compel a division. This and other liti
gation brought out the true Inwardness
of the work of Griffith and Egan. and
the crooked work they were doing.
Meanwhile the mine was being wrecked
by the non-attention to details.

SAN DIEGO, March 241.—(Regular cor

Mr. Slgafus now has twenty-two men
on the pay roll of the mine and mill, and
notwithstanding the disadvantages un
der which the mine Is worked by a for*e
of twenty men under ground in charge
of that veteran miner. J. R. Cheatham,
the twenty-stamp mill is kept busy a
good portion of the time. The quality of
the ore now being worked on yields $20
to the ton. The day your correspondent
was at the mine a small body of ore was
reached at the end'of the 1150-foot level,
fiOO feet under ground, which was very
rich. Foreman Cheatham ground up
some samples of it in a mortar and
fanned out over $1 to the ounce of rock.
He could not, or would not, at least he
did not, say how much there was of this
valuable ore. All your correspondent
could get was that there was a pretty
good streak of It. Mr. Slgafus is a very
close man with thaFportlon of his anat

his thoughts so far as the amount of
gold being extracted is concerned, but
one thing ascertained from the men at
work Is that they are regularly getting
their pay and that they draw from a

was shown through the new county hos

his pleasant lady. The building Is the
Palmp. hotel, built n few years ago, when
South Jacinto was attracting much at
tention from the outside world. The
time was when the hotel was kept well
filled from one week's end to another.
The building was erected at an expense
of about $l»,000, and Is substantially
built of brick nnd conveniently arranged.
It is supplied with hot and cold arte
sian well water, which is piped all
through the house. The three large
storerooms on the first lloor are divided
up into wards for the county's poor and
sick, conveniently arranged for comfort.
The upper portion of the building is not
occupied except by the family of the
superintendent and the hired help, but
is ready for use at any time when re
quired. Two hundred patients could be
accommodated in the house if the county
should ever be so unfortunate as to have
that number. Everything about the
establishment Is kept neat as a pin. and
there is an absence of that peculiarly
offensive odor usually attached to hos
pitals. A portion of the twenty acres
connected with the poor-house is sown
to alfalfa. There are enough cows kept
to make all the butter used and to fur

can drink. All the eggs which can be
used are also products of the fnrm and
there is an abundance of wood for fuel.

expense to the county has been reduced
