MR. STILES'S REPLY.
HE SCORES TAXPAYER AND THE CITY CLERK. The Expenses of the Offioe Under Mr. Stiles's Administration and Under Mr. Teed's—The Figures Cited. Editors Hkrald : There appeared in the Times recently in, an article written by some person styling himself "Tax payer," and in the report of that part of the proceedings of the citizens' reform committee relating to my nomination by that committee for city clerk, certain statements and comparisons to which, in justice to myself and those who have honored me with their confidence, I de sire to reply, and to that end crave your courtesy, though the action of that com mittee itself might seem a sufficient refutation of every calumny. It is not my purpose to recriminate or criticize any person, nor would I, if I could, plant one thorn to rankle in the breast of the person who would benefit by my overthrow before that committee or before the people and who inspired the attack on me; but I am content to leave him to the humiliation he must feet at the endorsement (? given by that committee to his half dozen years of "competent" administration. Quite as readily do I forgive, the unjust things said of me by his partisans, smarting under disappointment, and seeing, in their mind's eye, in the result of the ballot, the ghastly head of their pet champion dripping gore front the ram parts of the castle of opponents, bis de capitated trunk wandering goblin-like about the scenes of his former triumphs, while hostile feet trampled upon his political sepulchre. Economy and com petency are relative and not absolute mat ters, and of those who are disposed to make invidious comparisons, I ask, is it just to compare the case of running the old office of city auditor and ex officio clerk of the council with the case of running the new office of city clerk; or to measure my efficiency, who am but human and hence imperfect, by the standard of double-distilled quintessence of clerical perfection embodied in tlie present city clerk? The time between my nomination, at about!) o'clock p.m., and the closing of the press that night was so short that "Taxpayer" could make no more than a one-sited, hasty statement. If he had sought for the truth he would have found that by resolution No. 1258, ap proved December 20, 1888, before my appointment, the salary of the auditor and ex-officio clerk was fixed at $175 per month, and that he was allowed one deputy at $125 per month and three at $100 each, making the normal expense for salary of the office $600 per month, which it was for January, 1880', and not $505.12, as he says. During part of Fehruary one deputy was sick for a few days, and a man was put in his "place and was paid by the council for his services, and the regular deputy drew full pay ior the time he was sick, as had always been the custom of the office. When the tax sale certificates came iv I asked the council for an additional man for a few days to record them, as none of my reg ular force could be spared for that pur pose, and was given one; his service cost some $60 or $70. People who know anything of city affairs will remember that I came into office in the dying days of the old char ter and city government. In a short time an entirely new regime would be established and a new organic law put in force. In addition to the usual new business there was pending an extraor dinary amount of old business of every kind, which the council and the parties in interest were anxious to rush through before the transition to the new and un tried system took place. Meetings of the council lasted all day, and were often held twice a weei. All this meant additional work for the clerk's office, and as there was no way to use additional men, the force had to work additional time, and I was at the office until late at night, and the same was true of twoof mydeputies, and we were paid for part of this addi tional time. The extra compensation that so disturbs "Taxpayer" was not "unprecedented." Before this compen sation was allowed like claims from other officers had been paid, and one of over $100 to Mr. Seip for extra time under Mr. Teed was vouched for by him during my term, approved by tbe finance committee, and paid by order of the eeuncil. When these claims came up before tbe finance committee, consisting of Messrs. Sinsabaugh, Bosbyshell and Humphreys, I objected to them, and called attention to the fact that I and my force were working over time, and should be com pensated if anyone was. They said: Put in your claims, and we wiil see that they are properly considered. The clerk's salary for the two years pre viously had been $200 per month, but was reduced to $175 just before I took office. The new charter made of my office a clerk and an auditor, with a com bined salary of $'450 per month, which was deemed by the people, as shown by their vote, a just compensation for the duties performed. These considerations may have bad some weight with Dr. Hinsabaugh and Mr. B. Cohn (substituted on the com mittee for Mr. Humphreys) when they approved one claim for extra compen sation. There was not a man employed for .one hour in my office nor a dollar paid for service, except by vote of the council, with which I had nothing in the world to do. If there were any extravagances, from whose mouth should come the charge? Certainly not from a member of the finance committee. For the first month of my term I paid Mr. Seip, one of Vr. Teed's deputies retained by me, $25 out of my own pocket on account of additional work, which sum, however, lie returned to me voluntarily at the close of my term.

S. Gov't Report, Aug. 17, 1889. ABSOLUTELY PURE THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 25, 1890, Later the city clerk quarreled with the auditor, and had the salary of his deputy reduced from $100 to $83.33, and has in creased the expense of his own office by the addition of a stenographer, but what she is paid, or what on earth the clerk does with her, "Taxpayer" fails to state. Under the most disadvanta geous comparison the item was a net saving to the city, under my ad ministration, of from $100 to $250 per month, and 1 make no inquiry whether the present clerk and auditor have had extra help, or extra compensation or not. Ido not regard it as an audacious claim when my friends say that I am capable of discharging all duties pro perly pertaining to the office of city cleric, having done so to the satisfaction of all but one person, when the office had greater duties than now. An ordi nary mortal, willing to do his duty, can make a good enough city clerk; but to sit in a back office, far from tlie vulgar gaze of the common herd of incompe tents, and from a coign of vantage, di rect the movements of political factions, manipulate primaries and conventions, and shape or misshape the legislation of a city council, require special qualifica tions to the possession of which 1 lay no claim. There never was a public officer so necessary to the public welfare chat his place could not be supplied, though there are sometimes men in public places whom private interests cannot well spare. When such a danger seems imminent, it is well to meet it at once. There are not a few people, perhaps, who honestly believe that were the city deprived of the aid and support of the present city clerk, not only would the government of the city fall in ruins, but this fair city itself would vanish from the face of the earth, the sun go down in endless night, and the universe crumble back to primeval nothingness. I venture the opinion that this calamity would not befall, and in my belief I am confirmed by the fact that during the last year he was absent from the state for a month or two and the city hall didn't even tumble down; and what ever was missed, he waa not, though during that time he performed no other function of his office than to draw $200 per month of the people's money—a fact which I commend to "Taxpayer's" con sideration. If, however, he be indispen sable to the weal of Los Angeles, let us pray the gods to make his days endless upon earth, that he may hold office for ever and keep guard over the destinies of our city to the end of time, Maynard F. Stiles. Come Down to Cases. Editors Hkrald: —If we are to credit the Express, the Republican city con vention, of yesterday, adopted a plat form which contained the following: Resolved, That the Republican party of the city of Los Angeles in convention assembled, hereby reaffirm and indorse the principles of the Republican party as set forth in the platform adopted at its late convention at Sacramento, and under which the state of California was wrested from Democratic, control, and a Republican governor and general assem bly so triumphantly elected.i I heard tlie statement made during the late campaign, that tlie Los Angeles delegation to the Republican state con vention should not be held responsible for the election of Dan Burns to the vice of the Republican state convention or for his appointment as chairman of the campaign commit tee, because, it was argued, tho majority of that delegation had not been in the state long enough to know that Burns had, while secretary of state of California, failed to account for over $31,000 of the public mon eys. But for ' what period must we continue to throw tlie mantle of charity over our Republican brethren? The plank from which I cpuote endorses the Republican state platform as an in strument under which the state ''was wrested from Democratic control and a Republican governor and general as sembly so triumphantly elected." The state may have been under Democratic control, but what about, Waterman anil Boruck? Have tlie members of tiie Republican city convention not yet learned that California has been gov erned by a Republican for three years? Boys, you ought to post yourselves a little. This is not ancient history. But a more inexcusable blunder is ob servable in another portion of the resolution, which alludes to tlie tri umphant election of a "general assem bly." My visiting statesmen and newly come aspirants for California offices, have you not been told that there is not now and never has been a "general assembly" in California? Whileyouare new here and but slightly acquainted you should at least read up. A reference to our state series of text books or tb the annual statistician' even would have rendered such "a give-away" out of tbe question. If you will ask anyone who has been in the state over four years, i you will learn that we have a legisla ture which is composed of "a senate and assembly," and that while such a body as a "general assembly" is a constitu tional organization in your far-off home, that it has ever been unknown on the shores of the Pacific. The singular and amusing platform which I have cited, reminds me of a clause in the declaration of principles ( ?) adopted by the Republican convention of this county in July last, in which Senator Stanford was referred to as "a great publicist." Thai committee on resolutions did not know that Webster defines a publicist to be "a writer on t he laws of nature and of nations." In the most friendly spirit I suggest that our Republican fellow-citizens, when framing their next platform, em ploy not only a person familiar with ru dimentary Knglish.but likewise a some time resident who may lie able to in form them as to the ABC of California's government. When one of the secretaries of the Republican state committee—who also came from Los Angeles—said that l'eta luraa was the county seat of Santa Clara cftunty, we were willing to puss the matter "over in silence. But these errors%re becoming too common. TtRKD. November 25, 1890. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. A LETTER FROM CALIFORNIA ON WHEELS EXPLAINS MATTERS. The Ladies' Annex Holds an Imoortant Meeting and Does Business—The Next Session to be an Interesting One. The following letter was received yes terday at the cnamber of commerce: Binouamiton, N. V., Nov. 16, 1800. H. Jay Hanchbtte, Esq., Dear Sir —I have been wondering why I heard no more from you, as I have had no word for near two months. Your letter ex plains why. I do not know why they did not reach me, for I never leave a place without a forwarding order given at the post office. Los Angeles still commands our ad miration, for without her we would have no seasonable fruits or vegetables. We would feel like closing our doors and go ing straight home if we had not you to depend on. The monotony of the trip has only been once broken —Butte county sent us a squash weighing 186 pounds. Is it then to be wondered at that many visitors ask us the question, if thie is uot a Southern California ex hibit? Another thing: Los Angeles county literature is the only reading matter we have to distribute, and if she does not reap the harvest it will be very strange. We are in a rich and prosperous part of the country, and many inquirers looking anxiously towards the setting sun. Keep up the good work, the reap ing will come by and by. While we have encountered mo cold weather as yet, have only seen tne thin nest film of ice on two occasions, we are just deluged with rain. It has rained on an average five days out of every seven for two months "past, and yet people do not like California because of the rainy season. How hardly shall one with a beam the size of a bridge timber in his eye discern the mote in his neighbor's eye. Tbe big melons and squashes are great attractions, but I am not yet satisfied. The cry has gone up all along the way "We can beat them on corn." Won't you make an effort to send us some such as the Times described the other day— sixteen inches in length? They cannot beat us on anything, if we can only get hold of our best specimens. And please send us another 150 pound beet, won't you ? My time is so taken up that I have little time for writing; insteadoosf s four men with the exhibit we have now but two. Very truly yours, S. J. Maiiies. The chamber of commerce is anxious to keep up its record, ana requests those having articles for exhibits in California on Wheels, to send them in by Thurs day afternoon. The Ladle*' Annex. The regular meeting was called to or der at 2 o'clock p. in., Mrs. Dr, Wilder in the chair. As The hajl will be open on Thanksgiving, all ladies who have flowers or vines, are requested to send them in as early as possible Thursday morning, as tlie committee wish the hall to be nicely decorated on that day. Last Thursday Mrs. Grepe brought in some very nice bouquets, evergreens md grasses; Mrs. Coronel also sent in flowers, and Mrs. Hobbs brought in a lovely bouquet. On Monday tlie follow ing ladies, irom Boyle Heights, sent in flowers: Mis. Richardson, Mrs. Allen, Mrs. ('. E. Hutchinson, Mrs. F. A. Hutchinson, Miss Fish and Mrs. Crom well. Severaljbouquets were-brought in by Mrs. Hays and Mrs. Peterson. Flowers were sent in also by Mrs. Pas sions of Rivera, and Mrs. F. B. Sheperd of Ventura. With these liberal dona tions the chamber was beautifully dec orated. The ladies have placed a fine clock in their assembly room, so no time will be lost now. All members are earnestly requested to be present at our next meeting, as a new and very interesting subject is to be discussed; something particularly in this line of work, and that all should take an interest in. Let all be on hand, for help is needed and co-operation oi every member of the annex. _ FRUIT SALES. Profits From Oranges and Walnuts This Year. The Downey Champion has the fol lowing items: "We are indebted to Mr. Barnadino Guirado, of Old Los Nietos, for the fol lowing : My crop of walnuts, from sixty acres, mostly young trees, were sold to W. R. Strong & Co., bringing me $7729.08 for the 90,000 pounds sold to that firm. I expect to plant & new wal nut orchard of sixty acres the coming season." ■'C. A. Coffinan, of Rivera, informs us that, the firm of Porter Pros, has pur chased the crop of several growers in his vicinity, his own among the rest. Among those selling, he names Frank D.English, estimated at 10,000 boxes; A. H. Dttnlap, 12,000 boxes; and E. 11. Boyd. Mr. Coffinan has two acres, ISO trees, which he estimates will yield 1200 boxes. The fruit was contracted at .$1.25 per box, delivered at the station." These figures are pretty solid. Fvom 00 acres of walnuts, "mostly young trees," $130 an acre will do. From two acres of oranges $1500 worth of fruit is still better. if you have catarrh, you are in danger, as the disease is liable to become chronic and affect your general health, or develop into consump tion.

Exploration jnfct made of a cavern on the Stewart farm, about two miles from Barnassus, Armstrong county, has re vealed subterranean passages of o>some what remarkable character. Tho en trance is a perpendicular opening about 20 feet in depth. At the bottom the place had the appearance of an inverted cone, with about one-third of the apex and part of the side cut off, and measur ing about 24 feet at the base. The walls are of a dark gray color, rather smooth. From here a corridor about 4 feet wide and 3 feet high leads for several yards to a room where the light reveals a scene of grandeur. Stalagmites and stalactites are in profusion, and in shapes and forms to almost equal those of the Mammoth cave. Tho chamber is about 65 feet long by 80 feet wide, and the furthest end termi nates in a deep pool of water. This pond is perhaps 15 feet wide. The wa ter is pure as crystal. No living thing was seen by the explorers except a pecul iarly striped crustacean animal about 1 inch iv length, resembling a crab, but of a dull yellowish color. The temperature registered about 59 degs. Iv one corner of the first cavern were found a few specimens of arrow heads and nn iron knife, but nothing else to denote that a human being had ever entered before, Further than the pool exploration was not made. A complete investigation will be undertaken by persons who have secured the land.—Philadelphia Press. Notice.

It has been decided by the Executive Com mittee of the Young Men's Progress and im provement Party, that the manner cf the selec tion of the candidates who shall go upon our ticket shall be the fa rest expression of the popular opinion that the citizens of Los An geles ever had given them at any time, under any circumstances, by any political party.
