STILL CUTTING.
The Retrenchment Commit
tee and the Library.
Objection to Reducing: the Li
brarian's High Salary.
The Estimate of Money Required by
the Park Commission.
A Spirited Session—The Great Kxpense*
of the Library Last Year—The Ses
sion With the l'»rk Com
inlssioners.
If the members of the council went
into the retrenchment crusade for the
purpose of attracting attention, they
certainly should feel proud of their
success, for within a block of the city
hall yesterday, if one paused near any
group of conversationalists, the words
"economy," "council" and "retrench
ment" would be sure to turn up in the
conversation overheard inside of a few
seconds.
"What has made the council so con
demned economical all of a sudden?"
queried one business man of another in
the hearing of a Herald reporter yes
terday morning.
"Why," was the reply, "I was told in
confidence by Councilman Kees yester
day that the credit of Los Angeles was
80 impaired outside of tbe city that it
was impossible to sell the city's bonds.
In the east it had been told about that
there bad been a boom here and
everybody's ideas were of an inflated
character. It has struck the council
men, therefore, that it is necessary to
do something to restore the city's credit,
and the reduction of taxation by cur
tailing expenses is the plan fixed upon."
Yesterday morning tbe board of li
brary trustees met the council in dis
cussion in the council chamber. Tiiere
was a feeling in the air that meant
"fight."
Mr. Bonsall boldly waded into tbe
discussion by asking the directors how
they could reduce expenses.
Mr. Howard intimated that it was a
queer time to talk of reducing expenses
when the library had just been made
free, and the demands upon it would be
greater than ever before. If the library
was to be kept up to its present standard
of efficiency, and gradually enlarged and
increased, "all right. No material reduc
tion of expenses could be thought of. If
the councd wanted to impair the effi
ciency and usefulness of the library
they should come right out and say so.
Mr. Dobinson stated that the library
now handled 14,000 books per month,
and it would probably handle double
that number under the new system. The
library had been made free upon demand
of the people, who objected to being
taxed first and then charged a member
ship fee,
Mi. Howard continued: "When we
took hold of the library there were
about 2000 books suitable for circulation.
We now have 15.0Q0 books for this pur
pose ; 23,000 all together. The Itw con
templates the furnishing of the books
to the people free and we have been at
great pains to educate our staff to meet
, tbe increased circulation."
Mr. Bonsall demanded to know how
much the trustees proposed to spend for
books, they having spent Jf12,000 dur
ing the past year.
Mr. Dobinson replied: "As much as
we can get; there is no limit to this ex
penditure. The periodicals and maga
zines cost $1500 a year. We take 265
magazines. The library circulation of
San Francisco is smaller than that of
this city, but thirty-two clerks are em
ployed in the library."
Mr. Rees here attempted to pour oil
on the angry waters of discussion. He
did not want to impair the efficiency of
the library,, regretted the necessity for
reducing expenses, "but" the people
were comparing the expenses of the
library with those of six years ago, and
much as he regretted it, etc., it was
'the people" who were to be satisfied,
not the council. There was an elevator
that would not be necessary but for the
library, and that cost $500 per month,
while six years ago a librarian and one
assistant were sufficient, and the libra
rian was satisfied with $75 per month,
while they were paying Miss Kelso $150.
He thought the public ought to come to
the rescue. In other cities wealthy citi
zens come to the rescue and donate to
the public libraries. He would like to
see some of that in this city.
Mr. Bonsall remarked: "I under
stand these gentlemen are willing to
meet us in our efforts. For instance,
they might forego the $12,000 for new
books—say, take off $10,000; they could
buy the periodicals and have $500 for
new books."_
Mr. Alford remarked that the salaries
of the library attendants were all too
high, and that as tbey had been cutting
other salaries it was unfair to let the
library oIL Mr. Bonsall inquired if the
library board thought it was proper to
pay the librarian $1800 per year. The
library board promptly rallied to the
defense of Miss Kelso and talked at
great length of that lady's exceptional
fitness for the work, the good organiza
tion she had effected of the library
forces, and ending with the sortof threat
that Miss Kelso was wanted to perform
like good offices for libraries in other
cities at the same salary, and the im
pression was given that if the salary was
cut the young woman would resign and
then .
The council, however, were obdurate
in insisting upon the reduction of Miss
Kelso's salary to $100 a month.
The meeting broke up without any
further conclusion being reached and no
resignation being handed in.
THE COUNCIL AND THE PARKN.
The council met two members of the
park commission in tbe afternoon—
Judge Hutton and Judge Hubbell.
There was no attempt to discuss re
trenchment made. Councilman NickeJ,
with tbe fate of his predecessor in
his mind, came into the room
with blood in his eye, and when
the conversation had passed the
purely conversational stage he asked
the park commissioners to know whether
they intended to do anything for the
East Side park this year, provided the
council voted an appropriation. Mr.
Hutton replied that for his part he
would vote to use the appropriation in
any way the council—not Ms. Nickel
alone —should indicate.
Mr. Nickel declared he would not vote
for an appropriation unless an equal
amount was spent upon all the parks.
He thought it unjust that Westlake '
park should be in a condition to attract
immense crowds, while Eaßt Side park .
had no lake, no boats, and looked like a
Mexican ranch.
Mr. Bonsall beaded off discussion on
this line by inquiring what the park
commissioners wanted for the coming
year. The following estimate was then
submitted :
Plaza, City Hall and Sixth street parks. |2 500
Klysianpark 1,000
Nursery and supplies 2,500
New Parks (2) lo.OOM
Westlake park, labor 12,000
" supplies 3,000
" '• boat house 2,000
East Los Angeles 11,000
Prospect park 1,400
Conservatory 10,000
Propagating house 1,500
Pavilion 8,000
Total |80,000
Judge liabhell stated that the conser
vatory and pavilion could be omitted,
also the two new parks, but the other
items could scarcely be reduced.
Councilman Nickel had been waiting
for a chance to speak, and he now boiled
over. What! Should he keep still when
hie ward was getting only $11,000 and
Westlake was getting $17,000? Not
much, and he boldly waded in.
Judge Hutton stood it some time then
offered to bet that more money bad been
Bpent on East Los Angeles park than on
Westlake. Mr. Nickel declined to take
the bet, but intimated that the park
commissioner was deviating from the
straight line of truthfulness.
Mr. Tufts, who had not previously
said anything, here remarked: "The
trouble with you fellows ie that you
want to get everything you can for your
wards, or your people will never re-elect
you in God's world. Now, my idea is
that we should lay aside our ward ideas
entirely and finish up the parks, com
pletely, one at a time. Westlake is al
most finished. The boats are bringing
in a revenue of $3000 a
year, and everybody goes there.
Next year we can finish up East Los
Angeles park; but if we scatter our ap
propriation all over a dozen parks none
of'them will be made presentable, and
we will not accomplish anything."
Mr. Nickel declined to be convinced,
and after a lew further remarks all
around the meeting broke up amid mut
tered complaints and threats from the
member from the first ward.
IN SOCIETY.
Chaperones have caused it, young
ladies. The Herald'is society man has
lately heard a great many complaints
from young women regarding the offish
ness of the men about invitations to the
theater, to dances, and tbe like. The
explanation is as above stated—chap
erones. There was a time, not so many
years ago, in Los Angeles, when the in
viting act waa done about this way.
John would meet Susie on Spring street,
say, and he would go straight at it..
"Say. Susie, there's going to be
play acting tomorrow night at Turn
verein hall. Will you go?
"Course I will, John; what ie it?"
"Oh, a singing play. Now mind you
be ready at half-past seven, so we can
get good seats."
"All right, John."
"Solong."
"Solong."
Nowadays it is like this: Arthur
Easterner calls on Miss Dudie High
keyed.
"Ah, Miss Highkeyed, d'ye know that
tomorrow evening the Wayups will play
at the opera house? Ever seen them?
No? Very clever people—would like
very much to have pleasure—can't you
go? Do, please."
"Very kind of you, Mr. Easterner; I'll
be delighted if mamma can make it
convenient (turns to mamma, who is sit
ting in center of room of course) can you,
mamma."
Mamma: "Yes, I will go if it will
give you pleasure, my darling. Very
thoughtful of you, Mr. Easterner."
Mr. Easterner (seeing nightmare-like
visions of an uncompromising hackman,
two bunches of roses from a florist,
three seats at a dollar and a half, or a
loge at Beven dollars, new gloves, two
and a hall for pressing dress suit, and a
fifteen-dollar-a-week salary): "Ah!
charmed, I'm sure. Very good of you.
Ooodevening. I'll call for you juat be
fore eight."
Miss Dudie (as door closes on Arthur):
"Mamma, I do believe that great big
stupid really imagined I could go alone
with him to the theater."
Mamma (placidly): "Well, my dear
child, I don't believe he imagines it
now."
That is why young men are
chary about invitations. It is much
more economical to go to social events
alone anyway, and when a feliow is
forced to be pleasant to mamma, or the
aunt, or the married sister, who must be
present out of respect to the conven
ances, and pay for three instead of two,
why—he simply does not do it. The
chaperone has come to stay. She is a
necessity engendered by the require
ments of the society of Paris, London
and New York, and all that sort of thing
goes now in Los Angeles.
Mr. and Mrs. A. Lord, having enjoyed
married life for half a century, last eve
ning celebrated the fiftieth anniversary
of their first wedding day with a golden
wedding at the Third Congregational
church. At 8 o'clock the church build
ing was filled with friends of Mr. and
Mrs. Lord, and the happy old couple
marched down the aisle to the sound of
Mendeleaohn'B wedding march, played
by Mrs. Frank Herbert. Mabel Good
lin and Bonnie Lynn, two little girls,
scattered flowers before them as they
went.
After a few appropriate remarks, Rev.
J. H. Collins again repeated the mar
riage ceremony, and the pair took again
upon themselves the vows pronounced
so long before. Before they could leave
the altar Mr. N. O. Mussey stepped for
ward and presented a beautiful gold-lined
tea set of four pieces in behalf of his shop
mates. Those present then sang the
doxology, and Mr. and Mrs. Lord re
ceived the congratulations of their
friends, after which an adjournment was
had to their home on Sotello street,
where refreshments were served and a
good time enjoyed.

unusual care necessary at this time to prevent danger
to the family food through the introduction of some of
the numerous low grade, alum-made, or otherwise dan
gerous baking powders now raiding the market.
All baking powders that are offered the public under
misrepresentation as to their ingredients are dangerous.
Most alum powders are sold under the guarantee that
they are pure and wholesome cream of tartar powders.
Likewise, baking powders advertised as having pub
lished upon their labels all the ingredients used in them
are shown by recent investigation to have in their com
position four different substances not upon their label,
amounting to 49.30 per cent, of their entire weight, two
of which substances are lime and sulphuric acid!
Protection from alum Baking Powders
can only be had by declining to accept
any substitute for the Royal. All chemi
cal tests, official and otherwise, prove it
to be absolutely pure and wholesome.

shows the Royal to be a cream of tartar
baking powder superior to all others in
strength and leavening power.

Hard Work to Colonize New Guinea.
Europeans are finding great difficulty in
the settlement of New Guinea. If an area
of land is found suitable for colonization
the rights of the natives come into conflict
with the enterprise. Still, until such set
tlement does take place it is almost im
possible to make the country self support
ing. The cost of the administration of
New Guinea has been guaranteed for ten
years by New South Wales, Victoria and
Queensland, and notwithstanding the dis
couraging outlook Sir Samuel Griffith,
premier of Queensland, believes the pos
session can be made self sustaining within
that time.
They Have Titles, bat No Cash.
Some of the scions of British nobility are
in a bad way. About a dozen baronets,
exiled from home on account of impecuni

precarious livelihood as bark strippers and
gum diggers in the colonies. An English
lord was one of seventy-two unsuccessful
applicants for the clerkship of a newly
formed town in New South Wales. His
letter of application was surmounted with
the nobleman's coat-of-arms.
