SCHOOL TRUSTEES DEFENDED.
Tlio Recent Diphtheria Outbreak in
El T>orado County.
Some weeks ago reference was made in
these columns to the fact that six deaths
from diphtheria had occurred in one fam
ily in Xl Dorado County, and a local pa
per was quoted to the etlect that the dis
ease waa caused by the children drinking
foul water from a ditch which supplied
tho public school. The item referred to
criticised the trustees of that school dis
trict for their apparent negligence in not
providing suitable drinking water for the
pupils of the school. The Placerville
lican, referring to ths matter, says:
"No Mame i.s attached to the trustees
and there is nothing to show that tho ]
school children suffered in the least from
the water which was used during the j
winter, as i< only became impure about |
the time school closed. It is supposed
that after the warm weather began in
April, at or near the close of school, the
the condition of the water rapidly
became worse. The family in which
tho disease occurred lived near the
school-house and used the water con
tinuously. The school closed about two
months before diphtheria broke out, so
that the trustees were in no way respon
sible for the sickness. Onr contemporary j
luis done the trustees an unintentional
injustice, which we hope it will set right."
ll' any injustice has been done tho
school trustees it was hy oneof the Placer
ville papers, which stated thai the water
which the pupils had to drink was foul
and unwholesome. It was the duty of
the trustees to know the facts and to have
provided pure water for the school.

He died un the Sth instant, and the New-
York .Sun, has the following mention of
him:
"William A. Houghton, publisher, was
born in Honeoye Falls, a. V.. and was
47 years old. He was a son of Edward

POVERTY AND DEATH.
"VVhut tho Howard Association Is Doinjj:
—Sad (ases of Distress.
The report of the Howard Benevolent
Association for the month of Juno shows
that twenty-eight men, fifty-one women
and eighty children, making a total of
158 persons, were assisted by tho grant
ing of 1,111 dispensations.
The donations of clothing, etc.. received
from friends of the association was esti

'■• hree deaths occurred among the bene
ficiaries ofthe association, all the victims
being lathers of families which are thus
left without support. The cause of death
in each case was consumptions-id thema
itylefl behind of those families are li
able to the same affliction.
In another fiunily the mother is just on
the brink ofthe grave from consumption.
Thei c is no doubt that the want of proper
I and shelter is the mum cause of the
1 ravages of consumption. Theaaso-
I ciation is doing all that it can to relieve
distress in the ciiy. A little more finan
cial aid from those who can afford it
would be welcome to the su tiering de

DECAYING BRIDGES.
Two ofthe County's Structures are to
be Repaired.
Xew Towers for Folsom's Suspension
Bridge—County Jail Chaiu-
Gana: Abolished.
The members of the Board of Super
visors assembled at the Hail of Records
yesterday as a Board of Equalisation, but
as several matters came before them
which was in the nature of county busi
ness, they convened in the capacity of
Supervisors. Mr. Gtreerpresided andali
ofthe members except Mr. Black were :
present.
Mr. Jenkins, Chairman ofthe Commit
tee on Roads and Bridges, reported that
lie and Supervisor Bates had, iv accord
ance with the instructions of tiie board,
examined the long bent-bridge at Mc-
Oonnell's and had found that Lt needed
many repaint The trusses and bents
were giving way, and unless thoy were
repaired soon there was danger of a col
lapse.
The matter was referred to Mr. Jenkins
with power to act.
KUI.MIM's Sl SI'KXSION BRXDGK.
Wliile the board was on the subject of
bridges, Chairman Greer took occasion t<>
remind the members that they had been
officially notified that the suspension
bridge across the American Paver just
above Folsom was in a Bhaky condition.
ExpertGreorse B. Lean had informed
thorn that the towers were rotten, and
there was danger ot'a collapse at any mo
ment. Mr. Greer had Dean's report read,
and then proceeded to state that the mat
ter could not be overlooked any longer.
The people of Folsom had rights that
should be respected. They were com
pelled to use the bridge in question
day, aud they above all others should
know what its condition was. They had
asked that it bo repaired, and the expert
employed by the hourd had backed up
their request in his report. Mr. Greer
said that Folsom was in his district, and
he demanded that Justice be given it.
There was a vast traffic over tiiis bridge,
and if it should fall in the results would
be disastrous.
Supervisor. Bates seemed to be of the
opinion that the bridge would hold to
gether for a while yet-
Several residents of Polsom were pres
ent, Snd they put in a word here and
there to help Mr. I treer out.
THK BXPAIBS OBBBBKD.
Supervisor Miller said lie agreed with
Mr. Greer that the bridge needed fixing
up, and said he would vote for repairing
it. Mr. Black, who had in the mean
time arrived, moved that bids for repair
ing the bridge be advertised for, and Mr.
Milier seconded the motion. Bates was
tiie ouly one who voted in the negative.
The repairs will probably cost f5,00Q.
License Collector Dolan appeared he
fore the board and said a "great many
saloon keepers in the county evidently
did not understand the new license ordi
nance, as ihey liad failed to send in their
petitions and bonds. Mr. Dolan knew of
no better way of inducing thepartli
"get a move on" than to jog their mem
ory with a newspaper notice. The Col
lector was authorized to advertise.
NBBDB SPRINKLING.
E. Toiler, the Koad Overseer of District
LOi, called attention to the fact that the
J-stieet road, from Thirty-first street to
the old sugar-beet factory* needed sprink
ling. Last year the gravel haulers bad
contributed toward the expense, but this
year nothing could bo counted on from
that quarter. Tho Overseer was up
pointed sprinkler, at a Balary of $50 per
month from the county, and the privi
lege of retaining such contributions as he
might be able to secure from residents
along tlio road.
ABOMSHING THK CUAIN-O.YXQ.
Then (here was a lull for a few mo
ments in tin* board. But it was only the
usual lull before tho storm. Suddenly
Mr. Bates arose in his place and moved
tbat tho 'ounty Jfail chain-gang be abol
ished on and after tho lst of August.
The molion was wholly unexpected to
the outsiders, but the other members of
the board evidently knew all about it and
were expecting it. Tiio matter has been
a hobby of Mr. Bates' for some time. He
has maintained that the chain-gang was
au expensive luxury for tlie county: tiiat
! it accomplished nothing, and did not
I even pay forthe extra meals furnished
the prisoners, much less tlie salaries of
the two deputies required to watch the
men.
The motion was carried by a unani
mous vote of the board.
Road Overseer Finnic of District Xo. S
called tho attention of tho board to the feet
thatthere Was another bridge in the county
that needed repairs. This wjis the Mc-
Cracken wire bridge near the Slough
House, on the Jackson road. lie said a
new mud-sill wouid have to be put in
and various other improvements made.
There was not money onough in his di —
trict or he would nave gone ahead with
the repairs himself.
Alter some discussion the board in
structed expert Dean to inspect the bridge
and report at a future meeting.
CHURCHMAN'S WRATH.
It is Aroused Because Certain Streots
Are Ordered Vacated.
Tho proposed ordinance presented to
the City Trustees a week ago by C. N.
Post, declaring certain streets in the ox
treme northeastern portion of the city
(embraced in asparagus gardens and
orchards) vacated, was read a second
timo at yesterday's session ofthe board.
T. C. Churchman was on hand and
opposed its passage, claiming tiiat the
city luid no right to do any such thing.
He said the scheme was oue in wliich the
California Bank was interested and also
Messrs. Rider and Cavanaugh. He
claimed that every man who had tried to
open the streets was bought off and he
himself wss ottered fIOO, and $25 every
month to keep his suit, banging fire in
the con ris. He did not proposo to be
bought off, and If tho board would givo
him a Bhow he would have the* stroets
Opened by order ofthe court.
C. N. Dost, who presented tlio ordi
nance, claimed that some of Mr. Church
man's statements were untrue. Etc laid
there was no need of opening t'be streets,
and snch action by the board would only
entail additional expense on thu city.
Forty-seven extra blocks would have to
bo graded and sprinkled, and nobody
would be benefited. Mr. Post s:iid ho
appeared in tlio interest of Curtis 11.
Todd.
On roll-call tho ordinance was adopted,
and Mr. Churchman departed with an in-
Bulting remark directed at tho members
of tho board.
STORAGE_OF OILS.
Tho Proposed Xew Ordinance Intended
to Kecrulato It.
There was presented to tho City Trus
tees yesterday a stringent ordinance hav
ing tor its purpose the regulation of the
matter of storing coal oil, gasoline, etc,
within the city limits.
Tiio chief provisions of the ordinance
declare that it shall be unlawful for any
person or persons, tirm or corporation, to
Store, permit the Storage of, or keep for
sale in any ono building within the ,■,,, -
porato limits of the city a larger ouantitv
lhan LOO gallons of eruile petroleum, to be
always kept in metal cans or tanks, ex
cept thut if stored in a building or ware
house, licensed for, used for and devoted
exclusively to the storage of petroleum,
f:asolino or other like nroduct of petro
e'lin, or hydro-carbon liquids, the quan
tity above described may be exceeded.
THE MAYORS ECONOMY.
no Objects to an Ordinanco Because
of tho Advertising Cost.
Tho ordiimnee concerning plumbing
and drainage, submitted by tho Board of
Stealth to the Trustees for passage, was
beforo the latter boay yesterday. It was
held by the Mayor to be too voluminous,
and for that reason he was afraid of the
cost of advertising it. 4 *
Trustee Conklin thought it could be
shortened a great deal and bo made just
as strong.
Dr. Nichols said the ordinance could
not be shortened consistently. It was an
ordinance that was needed, as it regu
lated all mechanical plumbing.
Mayor Comstock wanted to delay action
until next week in order to see if ho
could not reconcile himself to the ordi
nance.
Trustee MeLaughlm said he proposed
to stand by the Board of Health as king
as they showed a disposition to do good
work "for the city, lie would vote to
adopt the ordinance:
The Mayor again mado a request for a
week's time, and Trustee McLaughlin
made a vigorous objection.
Trustee Conklin sided with the Mayor,
and despite a formal request firom Dr.
Nichols on behalf of the Board of Health,
that action be taken immediately, tho
ordinance was laid over one week.
