A Mystery Whioh Will Probably Re
main Unsolved.
Mrs. F. Van Home and her sister,
who live near Macy street, went down
to the river yesterday afternoon for a
etToll, the day being so pretty. Mrs.
Van Home took along some fancy work,
and selecting a sheltered nook some
little distance north of the bridge, the
two sat down and she commenced her
"I wonder why people can't find gold
here as they do in Colorado," said Mrs.
Van Home to her sister, both having
lived in the Centennial state.
"I don't know, I'm sure," was the
answer, and the two women glanced
around the river bank to see if there
were any indications of a rich ledge.
Both pairs of eyes rested on the same
object, and both gave a little "ah !" of
astonishment, for both saw a man's leg
sticking straight out of the river bant,
where the rain had washed the earth
away. The two women were not scared,
however, and Mrs. Van Uorne grasped
the shoe on the foot and pulled. The
result was that something gave way,
and she held the leg in the air. The
matter was further investigated. Mrs.
Van Home had astrong knife, and they
dug away the earth and soon discovered
the skeleton of a man with rem
nants of clothes on the fleshless
bones, and heavy shoes on the bones of
the feet. He evidently was game, and
died with his boots on. All the body
was found except the cranium; the
lower jaw and upper were there, but the
rest oi the head was missing.
Mrs. Van Home and her sister took
the leg which had been pulled to the
grocery store on the corner of Vignes
and Sansevain street, where they met
Police Officer Purvis, who telephoned to
the coroner. Soon Mr. Sutch made his
appearance with the dead wagon and
the leg was taken to the morgue.
How long tbe body has been hidden
where it was found can only be con
jectured. Tbe clothes and shoes were
rotten and fell to pieces at a touch.
The fact that the top of the skull is
missing lends some color to a theory
that the man was murdered by having
his head crushed. Another theory is
that the bones were put there by stu
dents of the medical college, but they
would hardly take the trouble to dress a
cadaver before burying it.
The episode ie one of those
mysteries which will probably never be
satisfactorily explained.
The Seventh Regiment Officers Adopt
A meeting of officers of the Seventh
regiment was held last evening at the
armory. Captain Chappalear, Lieuten
ant Alphonso and Lieutenant Baldwin
were appointed a committee to draft
a series of resolutions in regard to the
aspect matters have taken by the recent
decision made by Judge Clark. The
resolutions will not be ready for publica
tion for several days, as it is desired to
obtain the signatures of the officers at
Ventura, Pasadena and Anaheim. The
idea of the resolutions is to explain the
position of the Seventh regiment on tbe
m atter.
The gist of the document is to the
effect that tbe Seventh regiment has no
regard for Colonel Russell, but that if
he is placed at tbe head, that the men
will recognize the office, even if they do
not respect the man that holds it.
In the meantime everything is run
ning as usual, and there will be a
battalion drill under Lieutenant-Colonel
Howland next Friday night,
Tho bat is nowhere a favorite. It is
an outlaw in nature. It is not exactly
a bug or a bird. There is a very strong
dislike to the bat among the peasants
of South Germany. A feeling of disgust
and fear takes possession of the farmer
who finds bats in bis chimney, not only
because he belives the creature will feed
upon his pork that hangs in the smoke,
but because bats are regarded as unlucky
and bring poverty and misfortune.

A pocket map of the city of Los Angeles and
suburbs is now out. This new map has been
gotten up with great care and expense for the
Herald. It will prove a valuable guide and
chart of reference to both newcomers and
old residents. It indicates the lines of all the
street railways in operation and in process of
construction. It gives the names of all the
streets, corrected to date; a table of dis
tances to points in Los Angeles county and
vicinity, and many other valuable points
of reference and information, making a better
and more complete map and guide of this city
than ever previously issued.
This valuable premium with the Herald will
be delivered free to the address of any new city
subscriber who will pay one month's subscrip
tion in advance.

A Discussion Between the Members and
the City Water Company Officers—The
Trend of the Talk.
The city council yesterday morning
held an informal meeting with repre
sentatives of the water companies with
a view of discussing the water rates to
be fixed for the ensuing year.
Major Bonsall was in the chair and
the discussion was opened by Council
man McGarry, who inquired whether
anyone was present with complaints
against the rates as fixed by the council
last year.
In reply Mr. Dodd, of Levi & Dodd,
contractors, held that the rate paid for
water used in cement work was exorbi
tant. This rate last.year was 15 cents
per barrel, 20 cents per 100 square feet
of laid cement, and 40 cents per 100
lineal feet of cement curb. Mr. Dodd
said this rate was thirty times higher
than the water rate.
William Caswell, of the City Water
company, said that the rate waß not too
high, because his company was at enor
mous expense for collections on account
of the delinquency of contractors in
paying for the water. Yet, he said, the
rate fixed here is lower than in any
place on the coast. In fact, he main
tained, the rate was no higher than the
family rate and was below the ordinance
W. H. Perry, of the City Water com
pany, wanted to know what was meant
by exorbitant. If Mr. Dodd could show
that the cement rate was over, half as
much as is charged elsewhere on the
coast, the water company would ac
knowledge exorbitance.
Mr. Dodd —I don't know what the
rateß in San Francisco or elsewhere are,
but I know that when I am charged 15
cents for half a barrel of water, that
charge is exorbitant.
Mr. Caswell here took issue with the
gentlemen upon the quantity of water
used to lay 100 square feet of cement,
and contended that it took: ten barrels.
Mr. Innes —I do not understand that
we are to fix rates according to what the
rates are in other cities, but according
to the amount of money invested in
your plant, and your running expenses,
and this irrespective of what other cities
Mr. Perry—We are under the law or
under the contract which was made
prior to the law, prior to the new consti
tution on which the law is based. All
attorneys agree that we are working un
der the contract. If this is so, then the
way to fix the rates is not to get at our
capital invested but upon the rates fixed
in other like cities.
Mr. Bonsall —How do the contract
rateß compare with rates fixed last year
by the council.
Mr. Caswell —They are much lower.
We still hold to tbe contract rates, but
we make a rebate on them.
Mr. Perry—We are furnishing 100
families in this town who are not pay
ing ns a cent and never have paid us a
nickel. We know where poverty is and
we see it. We are today dividing less
money by one-half among our stock
holders than any water company on the
Pacific coast.
Mr. Innes —The greatest complaint I
hear is the rate charged on water closets
in private houses. This is 50 centß per
month. They want it lower.
Mr. Perry—We will ask the council to
advance the rate on tbe closets of public
houseß. They are in an abominable
condition and tbe water that is wasted
by them is scandalous. I will say noth
ing about private houses at present.
Speaking of the cost of pipe Mr. Perry
said: The railroad rates on pipe make
the pipe cost us double here what it
would cost in St. Louis.
Mr. Sheward here complained of tbe
water furnished the hills district by the
Citizens' Water company,
Mr. Perry said: The credits of water
companies in Los Angeles are so poor
that they can't raise money to do any
thing. I know you people on the hills
have had a bard rub, but I hope it is
better now. That is another company
from ours. I want to request the coun
cil to adjourn this meeting lor one week
in order to give us time to gather data
throwing light on what the water rates
should be.
Mr. Kays of the Citizens' Water com
pany—l join with Mr. Perry to have the
matter postponed for one" week. The
Citizens' company had a meeting a week
ago and elected a board of directors, and
affairs will not be settled till this week
some time, and next week we will be
able to come before the council with
some intelligent proposition.
After some additional discussion, a
postponement was taken as requested
by the water company people.
The Judges Will Finish Their Work
Thousands of people visited the poul
try show yesterday at Armory hall, and
the present outlook is that it will be a
financial success. Visitors from the
country were very numerous yesterday,
and all were delighted with the show.
The birds exhibited for premiums were
weighed and judging commenced and
was kept up the balance of the day. The
judges expect to get through by this
afternoon, and the complete official
awards will be ready for publication in
tomorrow's paper. A number of pre
miums were awarded yesterday. The
judges yesterday were Messrs. Bridge
and Brown, two visiting experts from
the east, and their work gave general
The Asiatics come in for the greatest
amount of attention, aB they are espec
ially adapted for city use, as they stand
confinement bo well. The Leghorns
and Plymouth Rocks are also greatly
admired. The Brown Leghorns and the
Black Face White Spanish stand high
in the estimation of tbe breeders, on
account of being big egg producers. As
an all-round performer the Plymouth
Rocks are apparently the most popular
on account of their fair egg-producing
quality, their good weight and for their
finely flavored meat.
The game fowl is but fairly well rep
resented and principally by the profes
sional breeders. This iB doubtless due
to their fighting proclivities, thuß mak
ing them objectionable to the women
folks. As a general thing the Sea
brights, Hamburgs, Houdans, White
and White Crested Black Polish, which
are favorite breeds in the east, do not
find favor by the breeders of this coun
ty, as they are regarded as too fancy. A
very fair' sample of Toulouse geese is
