1 Grand Jury Have Com
pleted Their Work
MANY OFFICERS CRITICISED
SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT IS
ROASTED BY THE JURY
Suggestions Regarding the Whittier
State School—Work at County
The grand Jury's final report was made
public yesterday morning when a copy
of the document was filed with Judge
Smith In department one. The Jury has
gone more extensively Into the various
city and county offices than In many
years, the work has been done thorough
ly and several officials are roasted to a
turn. The following Is a list of the mem
bers composing the body:
Sherman Washburn, foreman; John
E. Plater, secretary; Benjamin A. Break
er, Cyrus Brown, Wesley Brumell, John
Burns, Charles A. Coffman, C. A. Gar
diner, J. F. Jennison, C. M. Parker, Ni'.es
Pease, George H. Pike, R. B. Russell,
Fred W. Stein, Wm. F. J. Strowbrldge,
Ellhu Smead, Edw in J. Yaw ter, Jas. O.
Vosburg, J. W. Wolfskill. The report Is
up to January of the present year.
The Whittier reform school Is spoken
of as follows In the report:
The attention ot the grand jury was
early called to the Whittier state school
by the adverse reports in circulation con
cerning its management. A committee
of this Jury paid a visit to the institu
tion soon after we were impaneled and
later the entire body inspected the school.
We have also examined some of the
officers connected with the institution
In the hope of discovering the source of
the evils which confessedly exist and
suggesting some remedy for the same.
We find the boys' department in good
hands, and we believe that the hundred
or more boys committed from this county
and the hundreds sent from the remain
der of the state are learning valuable
lessons and are being trained In habits
of obedience and industry which tend
to make them good citizens when they
shal! have completed the terms for which
they have been committed.
The needs of this department of the"
school are not adequately provided for
as to the facilities for instructing the
boys in the various trades, and a consid
erable sum of money could be profitably
expended in Increasing these facilities.
In our opinion new buildings could be
erected at a moderate cost and largely
by the labor of the boys themselves,
which would add materially to the effi
ciency of the school and the successful
carrying out of the purposes for which
the school was established.
The condition of the girls' department
Is far from satisfactory to us, and we
deem it a duty to the citizens of the
county and the state that the facts as we
fird th«m be fully made known. A state
of insubordination exists in this depart
ment that practically defeats the objects
for which the school is maintained, and
we believe that the cause or this lies
mainly in the endeavor of some of the
trustees to foist upon the school a sys
tem ot management and discipline
which will stand the test neither of ex
perience nor common sense. A mawkish
and sickly sentimentality that would
proclaim to the pupils that all corporal
punishment is abolished surely has no
place in an institution of this kind. The
lack of control of parents over their
children is the prolific cause of the
school, and It is a matter of the most
profound regret that such a system of
government and discipline is being sup
ported by some of the trustees as will
result, in our Judgment, in inevitable de
feat and failure. It is a system which we
believe to be totally false in theory as
well as a deplorable failure in practice.
While we believe that love and kindness
have a place, and a large place, In secur
ing good discipline and control, yet we
also firmly believe that misdirected and
perverted love and kindness and conse
quent lack of control lead to the ruin of
many and become to them- a most bitter
We think the powers of the superin
tendent relative to the employment of
subordinates should, by act of legisla
ture, be given greater scope, as the ex
perience of similar institutions has dem
onstrated. This is the only one of the
state institutions where the power of
the superintendent is so limited, and ws
believe that much greater efficiencp
could be secured by its enlargement.
Believing that the discussion of the
removal of the school to another part of
the state, as contained in the special re
port of one of the trustees, to be ill-timed
and unwise, we wish to enter our most
emphatic protest against it, the reason
given for such removal, involving, as it
does, so much expense, seems to us in
conclusive, totally unsatisfactory anu
COUNTY HOSPITAL AND FARM
These two charitable institutions of
somewhat similar character have en
gaged the earnest attention and interest
Of the grand jury during the month of
their service. The facilities for the care
of tho patients and inmates at each in
stitution are taxed to their utmost. The
training school for nurses, connected
with the hospital, we believe to be a
move In the right direction, and tne in
creased facilities f'>r skiliTul : urgica!
treatment secured at no gr«at expense
promise the best results to the unfortu
nates needing such c»re.
The county farm gives evidence of be
ing In good hands. The grounds and
buildings arc attractive and well kept
and reflect great credit on the super
intendent. The productive capacity of
the farm is steadily Increasing under its
present management and the added reve
nue from orange groves now coming into
bearing and from the land recently pur
chased and brought under cultivation
will In the near future afford material
relief to the taxpayers. We note with
hearty approval the plan of the board of
aupervisors of having the business in
terests of both institutions under one
management and control, believing that
in this way only can the highest effi
ciency ar.d economy be secured.
The occasion seems a proper one to
tfff a tribute of appreciation to such
members of the medical fraternity of
I the city as have rendered gratuitous
attention to the sufferers In the county
hospital, which attention evidences that
sympathy and consideration for their
fellow-creatures which has always been
a prominent feature of this profession.
We regard this commission as of Ines
timable benefit. We cannot, however,
find any warrant In law for the charge
made by the commissioner for the
transportation from his residence to the
court house, and therefore recommend
that the district attorney Institute pro
ceedings against John Scott, commis
sioner, to recover the sum of $205 paid to
said commlsisoner for such transporta
Ex-City Clerk Luckenbach and his de
puties are complimented on the excep
tionally neat manner In which the books
and accounts of that office have been
kept. The city offices of attorney, as
sessor, city library, health office, street
commissioner are in good condition, and
that of treasurer and law library satis
SCORES THE ENGINEER
Regarding the office of city engineer
the report says: "We find this office
very carelessly conducted and in several
Instances almost criminal neglect seems
to have been shown, by which neglect
there has been entailed on the city a
loss of several thousands of dollars, not
ably in the erection of the city Jail."
Touching on the city water overseer,
the report says that the condition of ac
counts In this office renders it practical
ly Impossible for any report to be made.
Missing Fred Teale ar.d the council
committee are scored on the matter of
| the city auditor's office. "This Import
ant office." says the report, "during the
term of Mr. Teale, was in a most dis
reputable condition and exhibits a con
dition of neglect which we think Inex
cusable both on the part of the auditor
hlmeelf and the committee of the coun
cil, whose duty it was to scrutinize his

The report compliments the manner of
keeping the books of the superintendent
On the management of the city schools
the Jury expresses satisfaction. A series
of blunders occurred In the erection of
the new Macy street school building, by
which a part of the building stands or. a
public alley. Either the city engineer or
the superintendent of buildings, or both,
have failed in their duty. The site of the
Olive street school was purchased at an
extravagant price and Is inadequate, the
health of the pupils being menaced by
the wet and muddy floor of the cellar.
Great damage has been done to the
Union avenue school by the proximity
of the oil industry, rendering what was
formerly the most beautiful and valua
ble of the city school locations totally
unsuitable for a school site. The unani
mous verdict of all those questioned was
that the close proximity of the oil wells
is a nuisance and ought to be abated.
The report recommends that the board
of education cause the school property
to be surrounded by a fence, as the Jury
regards the present condltionperllous to
The report calls attention to the un
sanitary condition of the RosedaU
school. The report states that the gen
eral condition of the school from an edu
cational standpoint Is regarded as very
satisfactory and reflects great credit
on those who have this branch In hand.
The high school building ha 9 become
Inadequate to the needs of the city, and
the Jury believes that an additional
building is immediately demanded.
Gratification is expressed over the con
dition of affairs at the state normal
The report next deals with the city
Jail, and touching on the matter of the
interior says: We were then conducted i
to the tanks, where Is kept wha has
been called the "chain gang," but which
cannot be properly called such any long
er. Chief Glass has done away with the
ball and chain, and instead thereof,
when he has a refractory prisoner, uses
an "Oregon boot." The condition of the
kitchen and the nature of the fare are
commended. The city Justices' court
rooms are criticised to the extent that
there are meager accommodations for
female witnesses who may be In wait
ing, a condition which should be cor
An improvement strongly urged is that
the city own the ground west of the po
lice station as far as Hill street, and
south of the station facing on Hill street
for at least 60 or 100 feet, and running
east to the east line of the jail property.
This could be utilized for a stable with
a capacity for thirty-six horses and the
remainder of the ground could be used
for a work yard for the city's prisoners.
The report recommends that the land
desired be condemned and purchased by
SANTA MONICA CRITICISED
The following is given in regard to the
citizens of Santa Monica: "Early in our
sitting we were called upon to Inquire
Into the conduct of the campaign leading
up to and Including the municipal elec
tion, held at Santa Monica in April, 1596.
While we are not prepared to say that
the letter of the election laws was vio
lated, the Jury is convinced that tha
spirit of the same was badly fractured
in the Interest of two, at least, of the
successful candidates at said election.
"The police department of said town
seems badly demoralized, owing to the
selection of officers more in payment oi
election services than because of litnes.s
In regard to S. V. Riley, county super
intendent of schools, the report says:
"Our examination iian had to do largely
with the financial management of the
office and the condition as we found If
ir- not satisfactory to us, nor do we think
it will be to the average taxpayer. Mr.
Riley, in addition to his salary of $3000
per annum. Is by law allowed his 'actual
ar.d necessary traveling expenses while
visiting schools.' The maximum of this
additional allowance Is fixed at $10 per
district. From a business man's stand
point It would seem that this discretion
ary power over the public funds should
be exercised with due regard to the In
terests of the taxpayer and that a spirit
of economy should be manifest in the
use of public funds. We do not find such
to be the case, but on the other hand,
wherever a chance is offered to make a
charge, Mr| Riley has availed himself of
it, ctarging an exorbitant price for the
use of his own horse and that of his
father-in-law and thus imposing an un
necessary expense on the county and an
expense for which we can find no Justi
fication in law, or in the needs of the pub
lic service. On several of the claims
which Mr. Riley,as aeslßtant.superin.ten
dent presented, Is indorsed the opinion
by the former deputy district attorney
that such claims are illegal and ought
not to be allowed. The continued pre
sentation of similar claims and Includ
ing some which we regard as wholly
personal in their nature, reveals a de
termination on Mr. Riley'spart to secure
as much as possible out of the public
treasury, and we think that such a
course on the part of the head ot a very
important division of the public sarvice
merits the emphatic condemnation of
every friend of good government, and of
every one who desires that the admin
istration of our public school system
should be characterized by the highest
spirit of personal and public honor."
The offices of county clerk, assessor,
tax collector, recorder, treasurer, sheriff
and public administrator were found In
good condition. The coroner Is scored for
the administration of his office and the
disposition of articles and money belong
ing to deceased persons In a manner un
warranted by law.
The removal of the pest house to some
solated location Is recommended.

; THE NOTORIOUS BANDITS SEEN
IN LOWER CALIFORNIA
They Croesed the Border a Few Days
Ago on Horses —A Posse to
Start in Pursuit
E. W. McAfee, who was formerly con
nected with the territorial prison at
Yuma, but who now resides on a large
ranch near the California-Mexico line,
in San Diego county, Is In the city for
a few days. Mr. McAfee states that a
few days ago he returned' from a busi
ness trip to Lower California and when
about twenty miles south of the bound
ary line he saw Jose Morales and Anto
nio Sepulveda, the two outlaws.
At the time Mr. McAfee reports that
he was eating lunch with a companion
a short distance from the road and would
have attacked them had it not been for
the fact that his shotgun was on the
other side of the road in his wagon. The
bandits were not fully recognized until
after they had passed," said Mr. McAfee
last evening, at the Nadeau hotel, "as
Morales was dressed very differently
from what he was accustomed to wear
when I first knew him. After passing us
they applied the spurs to their horses
and left hurriedly In a southeasterly
direction. Each of them had a Winches
ter rifle, pistol, canteen and blankets
strapped to their saddles. They looked
like the typical Texas cowboys and ap
parently seemed well prepared for a
running fight. I had known Morales
several years and 1 am quite positive that
It was he whom I saw. Sepulveda Is
a man of whom I know nothing except
what I have heard and read. The de
scription as published tallies with the
party that accompanied Morales and
that is why I think it was Sepulveda."
It will be remembered that Jose Mor
ales is the Mexican who murdered Dep
uty Sheriff Wilson while the latter was
trying to arrest him at the home of his
brother, Jesus Morales, near Monrovia,
several months ago, after which he made
his escape and has been at large ever
since, notwithstanding the diligent
search made by every officer In Southern
California and Arizona. A reward of $500
Is offered for his arrest. Sheriff Johnson
and posse last week located him and his
pal In the TemecuTa mountains, In the
southern portion of Riverside county,
and gave them a lively running fight In
which many Ehots were fired at long
range, but they succeeded in escaping
with their horses and made their way
toward the Mexican line.
Morales and Sepulveda are both no
torious highwaymen and have publicly
boasted that they would never be taken
alive. The latter is wanted for assault
to murder and for the theft of at least
a score of horses: It Is reported that ex-
Unlted States Marshal George E. Gard
with a posse of five men Is preparing to
leave shortly for Lower California to
search for the bandits.
THEIR RECORDS ARE BLACK
Chief Glass Learns the Records of
Several Recent Captures
Chief of Police Glass has Just received
the records of some of the criminals
which his men have recently arrested.
All of them have served more or less
time In prison. They are as follows:

SAN DIEGO, April 20—(Regular Cor
respondence.) Jesse Grant and' Captain
L. Harris are two of the owners of a fleet
of schooners that will soon make regular
trips between this port and Honolulu.
For the past two years these gentlemen
have been maturing their plans, and
now It Is known they have associated
with them men whose financial ability
insures the success of the enterprise. The
business to be engaged In will take the
schooners to the guano Islands oft the
Mexican territory on the peninsula, and
from there to the Hawaiian Islands,
where there Is a good market On the
return their cargoes will be made up
of the products of the Islands, so that
a good business Is assured the company.
Jesse Grant has been In Mexico for the
past two weeks and yesterday advised
his associates that he had secured the
necessary concessions for taking the
