THE SUPERVISORS.
THEY PUT EXPERT MOORE ON THE
WITNESS STAND.
The Expert, Though Not in a Position to
Tell all He Knows, Qives Soma Straight
Talk—The Result of the Investigation
The supervisors yesterday cited Mr.
Edgar Moore, the expert accountant, to
answer certain charges he was said to
have made against the board in an ad
dress to the Taxpayers' Protective asso
ciation. This was an adroit move of
the board, tor it put Mr. Moore in the
position of being on the defense, and of
course he was not ready to tell the
board all he knew of their actions.
The first part of the seseion was taken
up in quibbling about an alleged asser
tion of Mr, Moore that the board had at
tempted to "head off" his investigation.
Mr. Moore explained this several times,
and made his explanation hold in spite
of the adroit cross-examination he was
eubjected to.
He said that he heard the board pro
posed to convene a grand jury which
would necessarily stop his work, as it
would take all the books, and he also
cited Aaron Smith's request for an in
vestigation as an attempt to play the
old game. The board had not yet taken
either step, so he was still at work
County Clerk Ward had extended every
assistance to him.
Mr. Lichtenberger, the president oi
the Taxpayers' association, made an ad
dress outlining the purposes of the so
ciety.
After some time the board got down
to business by the following question
from Mr. Davis:
I would like to ask Mr. Moore if he
stated, as is reported in the papers, that
the steps taken by the Taxpayers' union
had already been fruitful of causing the
board to shelve the claim of Aaron
Smith for $5000 for selling the court
house bonds?
A. I made a statement something
similar to that.
Q. Upon what authority? Do you
know of any such bill ever having been
presented to this board?
A. Yes sir. I will put Mr. McLach
lan on the stand, and Mr.'Smith, in re
gard to that. Mr. Smith went to Mr.
McLachlan to get his opinion upon the
board allowing that claim. The opinion
was not given to him, however, and I
was informed that the thing was de
layed. That is, he made the remark at
the time that the board would not take
any action now upon anything without
his opinion, since the movement of the
Taxpayers' union.
Q. Then you made that statement
the Herald published, of fact—or as a
fact—that a bill for $6000 had been pre
sented apd quietly laid aside by the
board.
A. I don't know where that came
from. I don't know anything at all
about it.
Q. You certainly stated that to be
the fact, as you were reported. Now,
there has never been any bill presented
to this board by Aaron Smith at all.
A. Well, I was not aware of the fact.
Q. For any sum for selling those
bonds—ssooo or any other sum.
A. I made inquiry Satuiday morn
ing. When I made the remark at the
meeting I said I had been informed that
it had been done, but I made inquiry
that morning of the auditor, and tbe
auditor told me be knew nothing of it.
I then only had reference to what had
passed between Mr. Smith and the dis
trict attorney.
Q. There is one other question I
would like to ask you. You are reported
as having said that in April. 1889, a
warrant for $488 was drawn on the cur
rent exnense fund in favor of a certain
bridge contractor, and no mention was
made as to where the work was done.
We admit that is true; no place was
mentioned—an oversight that perhaps
was reprehensible. And it goes on to say
"And there is reason to believe that the
work was never done." What reason is
there to believe that there is anything
of that kind?
A. The reason i 3 it was charged up
to the current expense fund when there
was $20,000 standing to the credit of the
general road fund.
Q. But did you investigate to find
whether that work had ever been done?
A. How could I investigate whether
it had been done? It was not located.
There was no place named.
Q. The names of the parties who had
done the work are attached to the de
mand ; receipts are given from the la
borers employed. You could very easily
have sent for them to ascertain whether
they had worked on that bridge or not.
A. That will be done "later.
Mr. Davis, after some unimportant
questions had been asked about the
matter, followed with this one:
If you liked this board you would not
make such statements.
A. lam taking every irregular war
rant and demand that has been allowed
by the board, and I am going to show
the reasons why it is irregular when I
get through, and my report will show
each and every warrant that has been
irregularly allowed. I find a great many
that have not been certified to, a great
many that have not been sworn to at all.
Everyone of them is illegal, because
this board has no right to allow any
demand unless it is sworn to, and I
have a great many of those, and I have
only gone through six months of the
two years as yet. And I propose, in
the end, when I make my report to
those gentlemen who have employed
me, to show the warrant and the de
mand and exactly the irregularity that
there is in it, and will give them in de
tail, and then the explanation can come
in afterwards. For the present I am
not asking any explanations at all. I
am only getting ready to make my re
port to this organization, and when I do
it then it will all be open, and then the
explanations can come in. There will
be time then for it.
Mr. Moore, on the matter of plumbing
for the old court house, said that he had
been somewhat misrepresented by the
newspapers. He said: They mis
stated me there in the amount of the
expenditures for plumbing. I didn't
make any such remark. I made the re
mark that there had been expended for
repairs upon the old court house, and
upon the old church and upon the jail
and jail wall, and it had amounted in
the two years to between six and seven
thousand dollars, which I am going to
establish as a fact when I get through.
Q. Now, the statement with reference
to Mr. Smith prese.iting his claim to
the board, and it being shelved by the
board after your investigation, that was
a statement made upon rumor ?
A. Upon rumor, yes; and Iso stated
it—that I had been informed that that
was the case.
In reference to the keeping of the
minutes of the board the following ques
tions were asked:
Mr. Ward—That etatemen in the Hkb
ald waa pretty sweeping in its remark
about the minutes of the board of super
visors not being written up, and about
the incompetency of officers, and so
forth. I suppose you were referring to
something heretofore, and not to any
thing in the present.
Mr. Moore—lt was all heretofore. I
explained that I had only got six months
or five months from the first day of Jan
uary, 1889, and I am a long ways back
yet up to this date.
Mr. Knapp—Will you please, on my
behalf, say that you have never looked
into the minute book or road book of the
proceedings of the board of suDervisors
during 1891?
A. Yes, sir; I will. I have not ex
amined them at all, sir. I was assured
by Mr. Ward, I suppose some two or
three months ago, that he had made
certain changes in the keeping of the
minutes there that I thougnt was very
essential, and he told me he had already
made them, and I think that was in
January, Mr. Ward, when you were
talking about that, wasn't it?.
After some further unimportant testi
mony the board, on motion of Mr. Da
vis, proceeded to express its sentiments
by the following resolution :
Whereas, Edgar Moore has reported
to the Taxpayers' union that the board
has endeavored to prevent investigation
of the affairs of this county ; therefore,
be it
Resolved. That while we denounce the
said charge as untrue and without foun
dation in fact, that we invite the fullest
investigation of the affairs of this board,
and that we extend to the Taxpayers'
union, or its employees, every facility
for the most full and complete investi
gation.
THE RAILROADS.
THE RAFIDTRANSIT AND THE WORK
OP CHANGING! GAUGE.
It Will Depend on the Payment of an As
sessment Lately Levied—News Notes
and Personals.
Although the material for changing
the gauge of the San Gabriel Valley
Rapid Transit railway was ordered some
time ago, it has not yet been delivered,
nor will it, nor will any move be made
in the matter until after it is
ascertained how the last assessment
will pan out. It becomes delinquent on
May 25th.. It is hoped that a good por
tion of it will be paid, amounting to
somewheres about one hundred thou
sand dollars, in which event work will
be at once commenced.
The business of the load is increasing
all the time. If the change of gauge is
carried out, there is but little doubt but
what the line will become excellent
property.

A Questionable Transaction.
Complaints are made of a band of
baking powder tramps whose tricks
upon unsuspecting housekeepers seem
to partake very much of the nature of
confidence operations. The band ia
composed of women, although employed
and directed by an agent of the other
sex, and their method of procedure, as
explained by several ladies who have
been victimized, is as follows: Obtain
ing access to the kitchen, they introduce
the subject of baking powders, inquiring
the kind used in the family, and volun
teer to "test" it to ascertain its quali
ties. Their "test" consists in plac
ing the can on a hot stove or over a
lamp or gas jet, or in mixing the baking
powder with water both hot and cold.
If the baking powder is good for any
thing, the heat, will, of courße, expel
the leavening gas, which is apparent to
the sense of Bmell, and has a faint aro
matic odor. The claim is then made
that this odor indicates something det
rimental, although, as a matter of fact,
a baking powder that would give off no
gas when subjected to heat would be
without leavening power and valueless.
Of course, the object of these alleged
tests is to destroy confidence in all other
kinds of baking powder and to sell the
particular brand for which the women
are traveling.
It is a fact that the baking powder
which these alleged "testers" are trying
to introduce was shown by the recent
official tests to contain both lime and
sulphuric acid, the result of impure ma
terials from which it is made, besides
being inferior in leavening qualities.
The result of using such a baking powder
must be impure food.
The only way to protect our food from
being contaminated by tramps of this
kind is to turn all persons who wish to
attempt to tamper with it unceremo
niously from the door, and to use these
articles only, which experience has
proved satisfactory, or the official tests
have established as pure and wholesome.

THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 6, 1891.
PART OF HIS FLOCK BELIEVE HIM
His First Appearance Sines His Trial.
Greeted by a Flower-Bedecked Pulpit
and a Small Congregation.
Rev. Dr. Ellis, the pastor of the Cen
tral Presbyterian ?hurch, who has had
notoriety thrust upon him by his breth
ren, and who has been tried and cens
ured for certain grave offenses by the
presbytery, was greeted by a very small
congregation when he entered his pulpit
last nigbt, says the San Francisco Call
of Monday.
There was evidence that the faithful
few who assembled to listen to him did
not share in the condemnation of their
pastor as tried by his reverend brethren.
The pulpit platform was fringed and
fragrant with roses and lilies, and the
holy table was hidden under a mass of
flowers and vines.
The congregation is divided on the
question of their pastor's guilt, some in
dorsing the verdict of his reverend
judge, and others stoutly maintaining
that he is an innocent and injured man.
Neither at the morning nor at the even
ing service did Dr. Ellis make any allu
sion to his trial or its result.
The subject of his evening sermon was
the futility of any attempt to destroy
the word of God or its effects. He told
the story of the Hebrew king who re
ceived Jeremiah's written prophecy of
the destruction of Jerusalem, and after
cutting it into pieces with a pen-knife
cast it into tbe fire, thinking that by de
stroying the prophecy he destroyed its
effect, but the prophet was commanded
to rewrite his forecast, and the day came
when Jerusalem was a heap of ruins.
Since that attempt to destroy the
word many others have been made.
The greatest of these was the attempt to
kill the author of the word on the cross ;
for Christ was the author of both the
old and the new testaments. They are
but the unfolding of the life of Jesus of
Nazareth, the Son of God.
Iv the days of the Huguenotß the
sword was used against the wordjyet the
word prevailed. Then the genius of
brilliant men, such as Voltaire and
Paine, strove against it, yet prevailed
not.ln our day science was summoned by
ingersoll to show the mistakes of Moses ;
yet science, after twenty-five years of re
search, confesses that Ingersoll was
wrong and Mosses was right.
In this way Dr. Ellis demonstrated
the futility of any attempt to destroy
the word of God, and charged his hear
ers to take heed that they, in refusing
to heed the word and become Christians,
were following the example of the fool
ish king with the penknife.
