of Water Works
To be Furnished by the City
A Judgment Against Dr. Hagan
Paid by the City.
Difference of Opinion Between the Street
Superintendent and the City
The city council met yesterday morn
ing, President Frankenfield in the chair,
and Messrs. Bonsall, Shafer, Brown,
Hamilton, Van Dusen, McLain, Sum
merland and AVirsching present.
Street Superintendent Morford filed a
protest against the opinion of the city
attorney as to the meaning of the word
"reconstruct." The city attorney had held
that a sidewalk or street could only be
ordered repaired or reconstructed with
the same material which had originally
been used. The street superintendent
was of the opinion that it was in his
power to order sidewalks or pavements
to be reconstructed with a different mate
rial, and he did not consider it his duty
in justice to his bondsmen to carry out
the idea of the city attorney. Referred
to the board of public works.
The report of the city engineer, as
published in the Herald, was read and

A requisition for $150 for the fire de
partment, for the celebration of the
Fourth, was rejected.
Several members of the council disap
proved of allowing the department to
parade on the Fourth.
The city attorney reported as follows
on the petition of Dr. Hagan:
You have referred to me the petition
of Dr. H. Hagan, stating that in the
year 1888, while acting as health officer
of this city, in pursuance of an order
made by the board of health, instructing
him to remove all persons afflicted with
smallpox to the county hospital, he did
remove one Ida Searles, who was af
flicted with smallpox, to the county hos
pital, where she afterwards died; that
afterwards an action was brought against
him, as well as his assistant and depu
ties and the individual members of the
city council in office at that time, for
damages, alleging at the time that said
Ida Searles was removed to the city hos
pital there was a heavy rainstorm pre
vailing and that she was removal u» .
open, leaky and unprotected wagon,
which allowed the rain to fall upon her,
and that her removal was made in a
frossly negligent manner, and that the
ospital to which she was taken was
cold and damp and open so that the
wind could blow through the same; and
during her confinement therein was
kept in that condition by the negligence
and carelessness of the defendants. All
of these allegations were denied by the
defendant, and he alleges that her re
moval was made in a careful manner
and without negligence on his part, and
that the hospital to which she was re
moved was in good condition and that
she received every care and attention
which she required. The case was tried
and submitted to a jury, and among
other instructions given the jury by the
court were the following:
"If you believe from the evidence that
the defendant, whether acting officially
or otherwise, acted carelessly or negli
gently in removing Ida Searles to the
hospital, or negligently or carelessly
placed her in an unfit or improper place,
or after placing her therein treated her
negligently oi- carelessly, or if you find
from any act of negligence of the de
fendants her death was caused, you
must find a verdict for the plaintiff."
All of the instructions of the court were
to the effect that before plaintiff could
recover, negligence must have been
shown on the part of the defendant.
The first jury rendered a verdict of
$5,000. A new trial was given and the
second jury rendered a verdict of $7,000.
In view of the instructions given by the
court, the jury could not have rendered
a verdict in favor of the plaintiff unless
they had been satisfied from the evi
dence that the death of this girl was
caused by the negligence or carelessness
of Dr. Hagan. My personal opinion is
that the evidence did not justify the
verdict and that no negligence or care
lessness on the part of Dr. Hagan which
resulted in the death of the girl was
shown, and that Dr. Hagan acted as any
conscientious officer would do in en
deavoring to enforce orders given him
"and which were intended to prevent the -
spread of this epidemic and were neces
sary for the general health and welfare
of the city. But my personal opinion
should have no weight against the ver
dict of two juries who heard all the tes
timony and were sworn to decide the
case according to the law and evidence.
The city of Los Angeles was never a
party to the suit and is now in no way
legally liable for any portion of this
judgment, and if the "verdict of the jury
was based upon the fact that the death
of this girl resulted from the negligence
of Dr. Hagan, then the city is under no
moral obligation to pay any portion of
The city funds which we now have in
the treasury were raised for specific pur
poses, and you are trustees of the same
for the sole purpose of expending them
for the purposes for which they
were raised and for the payment of legal
claims against the city, and I do not
think you would be justified in using
any part of these funds to pay this judg
ment against Dr. Hagan.
Dr. Hagan addressed the council at
length, giving a history of the case and
his efforts to stop the spread of the
Major Bonsall, Mr. Frankenfield and
Mr. Hamilton said that they were in
favor of reimbursing Dr. Hagan, who,
they thought, had done his duty in pro
tecting the city.
Mr. Hamilton moved that Dr. Hagan
be allowed to draw the amount of
$2,750 in three monthly installments
from the salary fund. Carried.
An invitation to the council to review
the parade was read and accepted.
The city attorney reported as follows
on the repaying of Main street between
First and Third.
I understand that this street is out of
repair, and that you desire to know in
■what manner it can be repaired, and
who should pay for the same. The Vroo

man act seems to contemplate (subdi
vision 2, section 7 and section 20) that
whenever any street or portion of street
has been fully constructed to the satis
faction of the street superintendent and
the city council, and is in good condition
throughout, and sewer, gas and water
pipes are laid therein under such regu
lations as the council may adopt, the
same shall be accepted by the city coun
cil by ordinance, and shall thereafter be
kept in repair and improved by the city,
and the cost of which shall be paid out
of the fund to be provided by council
for that purpose. And that all improve
ments or repairs to any street which has
not been accepted by ordinance, and
which is not in the condition above
stated, must be made by the property
owners. I am informed that Main street
has not been accepted by the city by or
dinance, and for that reason these re
pairs should be made by the property
owners. Section 13 of the Vrooman act
prescribes the manner in which these
repairs should be made, and provides
that the street superintendent may
enter into a contract with any suitable
person to repair the same at the expense
of the property-owners, and he shall
give such contractor a certificate, etc.,
and that the contractor will then have a
right of action against the owner for the
amount thereof. The act does not con
template that the city should advance or
pay any portion of these amounts, but
that the contractor must look to the
owner of the property for the same. Re
ferred to the board of public works.

Keeping House With Cockroaches,
Beetles, water bugs, etc., is not pleasant. The
most effective and permanent remedy is—for
two or three nights—to sprinkle ROUGH ON
RATS dry powder unmixed, in, about and
down the sink and drain pipe; scatter it well
but thinly over the sink. First thing in the
morning wash it all away downthe drain pipe,
whon all the insects from garret to cellar will
disappear. The secret of tills is in the fact that
wherever the bugs or inßects may be during the
day, they must go to the sinks for water during
the night. They can't stand ROUGH ON RATS
in their water. This is the quickest, most ef
fective and satisfactory remedy. ROUGH ON
RATS being a poison, it should be used in this
way only at night and washed away early in
the morning. Another way is to mix a table
spoonful of ROUGH ON RATS with a half
po.md of brown sugar. Sprinkle it on rear of
cupboard shelves or on plates, or on sheets of
paper placed high out of reach cf children.

Another Suit About the Leo
Experiments of the Signal Corps
The Mystic Shriners Return from
The Census Returns—A Snake That Stole
Ducks—Other Events of More
Than Ordinary Interest.
A complaint was filed yesterday by
Jean Leonis through his attorneys, Rey
mert, Orfila & Reymert, asking that a
certain contract between him and M. V.
Biscailuz be annulled. This contract
gives to Mr. Biscailuz one-half of all
that Leonis will receive on the division
of the estate of Miguel Leonis, who
died six or eight months ago.
The account of the matter given by
Leonis is that he asked Biscailuz, who is
an attorney, to look after his interest in
the estate. For this service he proposed
to pay the sum of $1,000, and he drew
up a paper in the Basque language, as
he does not understand English, and
submitted it to Biscailuz. This paper is
a contract setting forth the above ar
rangement. Mr. Biscailuz took the paper
and agreed to translate it into F'nglish.
He presently offered for the signature
of Leonis a contract in English which
the latter signed, believing it to be the
same that he had proposed. This took
place on the 17th of the present month
and the contract bears that date. The
contract, however, instead of containing
the specifietLjsum, calls for one-half of
all that Leonis shall receive on the di
vision of the estate. As Jean Leonis's
share is about $100,000, the sum given
seems to him disproportionate to the
amount of service to be rendered.
Mr. Biscailuz's statement is that the
contract was entered into by Leonis
with a complete understanding of what
it contained, and that he agreed to give
his lawyer one-half of his share of the
THE MYSTIC SHRINERS.
They Do Honor to Their Entertainers
Sunday afternoon the excursion of the
Nobles of the Mystic Shrine returned to
the city. Three days were spent at
Ventura and the nobles and their ladies
unite in declaringtthat it was an excep

the regular programme of festivities
which was published in this paper, a
grand ball was given Friday evening by

have been permitted to make tlieir an

Whereas, Upon arrivii.g here they
found awaiting them a most magnificent
welcome, a committee of hei citizens
meeting them far out on the burning
sands of the desert and conducting them
safely through the gates into the city,
upon entering which the people in great
numbers bade them welcome, their city
being artistically arrayed in holiday at

the opportunity of repaying.
A Few Corrections and Additions Made.
No new figures were obtained by the
census authorities yesterday on the un
completed cities and districts. Returns
from San Diego are expected about Wed
nesday, and from the county of Los An
geles in a day or two. The time of the
supervisor and assistants is very much
taken up with receiving visitors who
come to declare that their names have
not been enrolled, and who usually de
part in a surprised frame of mind when
they are shown the schedule. It takes
a good deal of time to find the desired
name, however, and keeps the occu
pants of the office away from other
work. Mr. Mosher says that he does
not wish to complain of this, for he is
anxious to have' the public feel that
everything that is right and just has
been done, and that the figures obtained
are as correct as possible.
Several additions were made to the
lists yesterday, and the population of
Los Angeles will probably be 100 or 200
over the 50,000 mark.
The population of the' Santa Monica
district, including the town of Santa
Monica, is about 1,750. This, like most
of the other figures, is considerably
under what was expected.
A LEGLESS THIEF.
A Snake With the Evidence in Its
For some time past a mysterious dis
appearance of ducks, chickens and rab
bits belonging to Baron Rogniat has been
taking place, and no one could account
for it. After eleven small ducks had
disappeared, leaving no trace behind,
Baron Rogniat requested one of his em
ployees to keep a close watch and catch
the thief if he could. Yesterday morn
ing the culprit, in the shape of a gopher
snake, was captured and killed. The
snake was in the act of swallowing a
small white rabbit, the head and fore
quarters having already disappeared.
The snake, which was not injured in
appearance when killed, was brought to
the Herald office, where, with the rab
bit still in its mouth, it attracted con
THE SIGNAL CORPS.
Experiments Arcoss the City With
Flags and Mirrors.
Sunday afternoon the signal corps of
the National Guard of this city was out
for practice. One squad went to the top
of the hill back of the San F'ernando
street depot and the other to the hill in
Boyle Heights on which the Catholic
orphan asylum is situated, the distance
being about two and a half miles. F'x
periments were made in signaling with
flags, with minors and with the helio
graph. Owing to the fact that the air
was a little misty the signals with flags
were not as successful as those with the
mirrors. The boys found the work very
interesting, and propose to go out every
Sunday until they are thoroughly con
versant with the code.
GROCERS TO CLOSE.
The Clerks to be Given a Holiday on
Some time ago the clerks of Jevne's
grocery store decided to circulate a pe
tition among the retail grocers of the
city requesting that their stores be
closed entirely on all legal holidays, in
cluding July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christ
mas, New Year's Day, Washington's
Birthday and Decoration Day. All of
the retail grocers except one or two
have concluded to grant the petition,
and the new arrangement will begin
with the Fourth this year. Those who
have groceries to purchase for the Fourth
will have to visit the groceries on the
third this year. «
