STEVENSON Of Illinois CONGRESSIONAL TICKET. FOR CONGBKSS, VI DISTRICT: MARION CANNON Of Ventura The celebration of tho centennial of the first French §epublic, yesterday, was most, creditable in all its parte. The procession was a fine and striking page ant, and the exercises at Hazard's pa vilion were both interesting and patri otic. Our French fellow citizens deserve the meed of praise for the very hand some way in which they observed the day. The Herald wishes to emphasize its advice of yesterday, to clean the city thoroughly. The council should give the health officer, all the assistants he needs, and means should be taken to ensure their being competent men ; but action should be no longer delayed. All the back yards in tbe business part of the city should be inspected and made as clean as a parlor. There should be no temporizing, and no superficial work. At present there ia no particular cause for alarm, and a little work now may save untold sorrow and lo3s, and avert any possible panic. The the Southern Pa cific and other great lines from the Western Traffic association, and the de moralization aud moribund condition of the Transcmtinental association leaves each railroad free to make its own rates. That a material lowering of rates will follow these disruptions can hardly be doubted. The Pacific coast will be the gainer thereby, and we congratulate the people, especially of our own section, in the prospect of a greatly increased im migration of eastern settlers on account of the demoralization of the traffic com binations. The action of Dr. Cotter, the state board of health's inspector, at Yuma, in quarantining passengers on the South ern Pacific road's trains, yesterday, who were suspected of having cholera, is a reassuring evidence of the energy of the sanitary authorities. It is not known that the ernes are cholera, but the doc tor very properly decided to run no risks while there was any doubt about tbem. Dr. Cochran, the president oi the state board of health, who resides in this city, says that there is no dan ger to be expected from the presence of tbe other passengers on the train, as Dr. Cotter had quarantined all who had been exposed to any chance of infection. The incident is one which points a moral. It emphasizes the necessity for taking all possible precautions against an invasion of the plague. The city cannot be made too clean, and the peo ple cannot keep themselves or their premises too clean. In fact, cleanliness in all particulars is conceded by the msdical authorities to be the prime safe guard, pood food and plenty of courage being excellent accessories. With the state and city officials on tbe alert, as this affair of yesterday shows is the case, Los Angeles has very little cause for fear, but at the same time does not want any measure of precaution neg lected. The Chinese Six companies have as sumed a defiant and lawless attitude in advising their coolies to pay no atten tion to the registration They say "our countrymen must be allowed to live in the United States without being registered." The San Francisco Call treats this as a ridiculous assertion of rights to come from a nation which im poses the moat vexatious regulations up on foreigners residing within its juris diction. Americans can only live in euch parts of China as have been declared open to immigration. Foreigners have no rights in China which conflict with the interests of the Chinese people or wish what the Chinese government is pleased to regard as the interests of its subjects. The Chinese Six companies also say: "If by refusing to register a man is arrested, imprisoned or punished he can depend on the Six companies for relief." Are the Six companies certain that they can make that assurance good? If, when the time for registration expires, Chinese laborers are arrested and held in confinement until they can be de ported, what relief can the Six com panies afford? Can they resist a federal law which our courts declare constitu tional? Again, tbe Six companies say that a Chinaman who does not pay the tax imposed by the Six companies to hire counsel to test the constitutionality LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 23, 1892. of the act, will be prevented from re turning to bis own country when he applies for his pass to tbe Six com panies. By what right do the Six com panies prevent a person who is not held by process of law from leaving the coun try when be sees fit ? The arrogant let ter of the Six companies has furnished a good reason why the law should be strictly enforced. This condition of a government within a government, must come to an end. The United States authorities cannot permit the Chinese companies to determine who ehall or shall not live in this country. These companies have already said enough to subject them to *the discipline of our federal courts. THE COUNTY CLERK AND THE GREAT REGISTER. The Express comes out in two col umns of special pleading in last even ing's issue to try to break the force of the arraignment of Mr. Ward (the county clerk, and candidate for re-elec tion.) by the Herald, some time ago, and by the resolutions of the late Demo cratic convention. Mr. Ward is charged with using his position as county clerk for the purpose of favoring his organ, the Express, in giving it the contract to print the great register. No bids were asked for from other print ers, notwithstanding several were ready to compete for the work. The defence made by the Express is that the law does not older county clerks to submit bids for printing to competition, but merely requires the board of supervisors to limit the max imum price that will be allowed. The board fixed the maximum price at 23 cents per name, as was clearly their duty; but this does not imply that the work should not be secured at a less price if possible. It is susceptible of, proof that Mr. Ward gave printing houses in this city to believe that he would 6ubmit the job to competition, and dallied with them on this subject even after he had awarded the contract of his own motion and without bids to the Express at the maximum price fixed by the board of supervisors. This shows very plainly that Mr. Ward used his position as a public officer to favor a job office attached to a news paper concern tbat could be useful to him in booming hia name for re-nomi nation hy the Republican party. The IsQarAof supervisors fixed the maximum liihitof the cost for printing the Great Regieter, aud there their duty ended. But the law does not contemplate that the maximum ehall rule in these cases if the work can be got cheaper. The printers who stood ready to bid, say they would have done it for lesß, and the head of one reputable house declared that he could have stockel his office with a new power press and made a fine profit besides out of this job at the rate at which it was given to the Express. We have heretofore said that the county has been made to sweat to the tune of $2500 or $3000 for the partial and arbitrary act of Mr. Ward. This cannot be denied, and the people ought to take this fact into consideration when they come to vote for county clerk. A man who, as an official, fails to protect the people's interests when he can do co,' cannot, with any degree of grace, ask their support. The Express cites San Francisco, as a county which pays a higher price for its great register than Los Angeles. But even in San Francisco, the county clerk did not take upon himself to give out the work without inviting bids. As against the high-priced bid ac cepted in Sau Francisco, we shall cite the lact that in Santa Clara, which is a fairer comparison for our county, tbe great register is printed at the rate of 18 cents a name. Tine, only 1500 copies of the register are to be furnished there against 3000 here; but the greater num ber of names to be printed here than in Santa Clara ought to more than offset the difference in the number of copies of the register required to be furnished. There will be Eome 30,000 names in the Los Angeles register, for which the printer will get, Eay, $6000. Surely a job of this magnitude ou«ht to be given out to competition, and not be seized as the personal belonging oi an official to place where it would do him the most good. The board of supervisors fix every year a maximum for advertising; but when it comes to giving out the de linquent tax list they submit it to com petitive bid. Every feature of thia register business Bhows plainly that Mr. Ward abused his official trust to favor a parti san who could help him in his political aspirations. He has brought upon him self no penal responsibility for the act, but he has morally violated the plain intention of the law, and acted as no business man would have done in his own private affairs. The county has lost, and the taxpayers will have to make up, the difference between what the work is done for and what it could have been done for. Whether that sum is $300 or $3000 is only a question of de gree. The intent is there—plain and palpable as a mountain rising out of a clear sky. It is for those who have to foot the bill to cay whether they want the coun ty clerk's office filled by a man who will thus compromise his duty with his con science. It is curious whan unfortunate man is County Clerk Ward. When it was desired to alter some naturalization records, he did not do it himself, but County Tax Collector Whitney was permitted to get at the documents and change the dates. The documents, however, were in charge of County Clerk Ward. Now another misfortune, it has been discovered, has befallen tbe records of which Mr. Ward is the sworn custodian. Mr. John C. Cline, the Re publican nominee for sheriff, some few years ago was a township constable. What his bills were at that time can be seen in another column of the Herald ; these bills were presumably based on sworn demands and sworn monthly re ports from the constable, which were filed in the county clerk's office. A few days ago a representative of thia paper and some other persons in terested in Mr. Cline'a political career, asked Mr. Ward for an inspection of these demanda and sworn claims. A search showed they were not among tbe files, and Mr. Ward is reported as Bay ing that he thought they must have been stolen. This is decidedly curious. Why should they be stolen? Who would want to steal them? Why were they worth stealing? And if the county records are properly cared for, how could they be stolen ? Haa not the public bad enough of these peculiarly curious official misfortunes? Do tbe taxpayers want to elect a man sheriff who had the quintessence of gall in sufficient quantity to make such de mands for his services as are shown in another column? It is time to make a clean sweep. The court house is full of tax-eating bacilli. Let us fumigate it. A correspondent, writing from Se quoia Mills, says that the hills are full of people hunting for Evans and Son tag. There appears to be no organiza tion amongst the man-hunteis, and the aeveral pesses, and even individuals, are scouring the country, each on its or his own hook. The result may be that there will be bloodshed by mistake among themselvep. OBSEQUIES OF E. F. SPENCE. The Ceremonies Which. Were Carried Out Yesterday. The funeral services of Hon. E. F. Spence, yesterday afternoon, were only another illustration of the esteem in which he was held by his fellow citizens, and the feelings of universal regret that such a man should not have been spared for many more years of usefulness. The attendance was very large, and as the friends and acquaintances and represen tatives of the many civic societies in which he was an honored member, gath ered at the spacious residence, the i ji pression of the wide range of his busy life, and its sympathies, grew deeper. Only a comparatively small number of those who were present could obtain a place in the house. In accordance with the expressed de sire of the family, friends refrained from bringing their offerings of flowers, and the exercises were of tho simplest order. The choir sang the hymn, Aoide with Me, after which Rev. J. W. Campbell made a Bhort prayer. Another hymn, Refuge, was sung, and then the de ceased's pastor, Rev. Dr. Stephenson, of the Monrovia Methodist Episcopal church, spoke touchingly of tbe de ceased. His remarks were brief and well chosen. After giving a short sketch of the life of the departed member of his flock, he gave some personal reminis cences of one who was, he said, never so happy as when responding to appeals for assistance. After dwelling on the subject of his great philanthrophy, the speaker m:-'!e mention of the deceased's public career, his literary achievements aud then turned to the sorrow-stricken members of the family circle. His words of com fort and conn gel were very impressive, and all present were greatly affected. Rev. Dr. Campbell supplemented what had been said by telling bis own personal experiences with Mr. Spence. He had been among the first to welcome him when he came, nine months ago, a new and unknown preacher to this city, aud it had been his pleasure to he pres ent and kneel in prayer with him dur ing his last illness, fie epoke with feel ing of the high Christian character of the deceased, and when he had con cluded his words of tender sympathy and condolence to the bereaved ones gathered about the casket, there was not a dry eye in the bouse. The exercises closed with the song beginning, "I will sing you a song of that beautiful land," after which thoße present were allowed a last look at the face of him who was about to be laid in his last resting-place. There were two sets of pall bearer?, the first chosen from the local member ship of the Odd Fellows, as follows: J. F. Hoffmaster, A. M. Sutherland, L. M. Bates, P. M. McConnell, Gus Smith and Gustave Heiman. These bearers placed the casket in the hearse and accompa nied the remains to the cemetery, where the Masonic fraternity took charge. The bearers officiating for the Masons were: Judges J D. Bicknell, W. P. Wade, Col. J. C. C. Lee, S. H. Mott, W. H. Workman, H. Z. Osborne, John S. Park and H. W. Hellman. The exer cises at the grave consisted in the beau tiful Masonic rites, conducted by Worshipful Master J. W. Long, assisted by Past Master W. H. Morgan, of Pen talpha lodge. The order of the procession, as car ried out under the direction of Col, Freeman G. Teed, was as follows : Platoon of mounted police; Coeur de- Lion commandery, K. T., Sir Knight George M. Holton in command ; lodges of Odd Fellows, Fred Manchester in charge; Knights of Pythias, T. O. H. Bogalsky in charge ; detachment of Los Angeles fire department, Col. W. S. Moore in charge; Bankers' association of Los Angeles; Southern California lodge, F. and A. M., James W. Long, W. M.; pall bearers, hearse, family and friends in carriages. The interment was at Evergreen cemetery, and the procession that ac companied tbe remains was one of the longest ever witnessed in this city. COL. DUNCAN'S LA PERLE. His Cafe Where Irresistible Plats Will Be Served. Col. Blanton Duncan has, like all Kentuckians, a liking for a good horse, handsome women, and good things to eat. He found Los Angeles well sup plied with the two former, but he thinks it is lacking in the latter. So he has opened the Caf6 La Perle, which, how ever, is not a pearl beyond a moderate price. Here the gourmet can fatten on the luscious Texas and Louisiana oysters, on green turtle chops and soup, on ter rapin, and the most tempting kind of game. The place haß been elegantly fitted and made attractive in all re spects. It should be well patronized. Will Meet In Milwaukee. Portland, Ore., Sept. 22.—The Sover eign Grand lodge of Odd Fellows decided this afternoon on Milwaukee, Wis., as the place for holding the next annual session.

OVERLAND PABSKNGBRS quaran tined AT OGIJLBY. Health Inspector Cotter at Yuma Show* Commendable Caution—Suspicions Cases of Sickness—They May Arrive Here Today. A carload of passengers who expected to arrive in this city at 10 o'clock last night, on the Sjuthern Pacific overland train from the east, are sidetracked at Ogilby, a little station on the Colorado desert, 20 miles this side of Yuma. They are well fed and well cared for, but are probably invoking maledictions on tbe comma bacillus and quarantine regulations in general. The reason foi their stay on the edge of the once exist ing Salton sea is due to tbe commend able cautiousness of Dr. Colter, tbe state board of health's quarantine officer at Yuma. When the train reached Yuma yester day on its way to Los Angeles, Dr. Cotter, as was his duty, made an inspect tion of the cars, and found two men il with suspicious symptoms. One was George B. Pope, of Greytown, Nicar agua, who was en route from New York to this city, and the other waß W. H. Clark, of Uainsville, Texaß, where it is said several sporadic cases of cholera had occurred. Dr. Cotter had all the passengers who had been exposed to the danger of infection from tbe sick men put in smoking car C. P. 1040 and sidetracked at Ogilby. Super intendent Muir of the Southern Pacific company at this city, waa telegraphed the* condition of thiugß and at once ordered provisions eeut forward for the imprisoned passengers, and had two box cars cent to Ogilby in which to fumi gate the detained people. The sick men were afflicted with bowel trouble and derangement of the stomach. Dr. Cotter did not pronounce their cases aa cholera, but considered them so suspicious as to demand a thorough investigation. At the last ad vices from Ogilby last night, the patients were reported as in no immediate danger. The remainder of the passengers were allowed to proceed, and. tbe train ar rived here last evening on time. The local health authorities did not con sider that there waa any necessity for a further inspection of the passengers, or their detention. Those who were on board the train last night said tbey thousht the quarantined people would be allowed to continue their journey to this city today. THE BOARD OF HEALTH. Proper Precautions Against Introduction of Cholera. The board of health met at the mayor's office, last night, with Dr. Kurtz in the chair. A petition was read from officials in the old city hall, including the police justices and chief of police, asking that the sanitary condition of the city prison and offices of the police department and the justice courtß be looked into by the proper officials. On motion, the board was asked to abate the nuisance. Dr. McGowan stated that he is doing all in hiß power, with the aid of seven deputies, to keep the city free from in fection. Under his direction the poet master is fumigating all foreign mails received here, with a view to excluding all possible contagion of cholera. It is a hard thing to keep a good lookout over a city embracing 34 miles. He believed tbat all money expended now upon sanitary precautions would return to the people fourfold. The east ern seekers after health and pleasure will not go to Europe during the winter months. They will either go down to Florida or come out here. If Los An geles can show them, and make it known that the city has done all in its power to preserve the public health, it shall have a large influx of eastern vieitors, and every dollar disbursed for this purpose will be money well ex pended. In the matter of ice manufactories, Dr. MacGowan said he had been misin formed by an employe at the Coulter works as to the water in use at that place. li l have seen Mr. Coulter's re ceipts for water from the City pipes, and know that the water so paid for is used to make ice. In the matter of tin Mil liken ice," said the doctor, "I have made a critical examination of the plant, and find that the ammonia pipes do not come in contact with the ice, which is entirely protected from such contact by heavy iron plates." The case was discussed thoroughly by Dr. Davisßon, and the health officer, and the former said that the subject should be kept before the board until all possi bility of cholera is eliminated. In the matter of good and healthy water, Dr. MacGowan says the city should own thelvanhoe ranch, for water • purposes, as New York owns theCroton river. Dr. Davisson read a pamphlet on san itary precautions against cholera, giving necessary directions for the fumigation of premises, and the purification of food and water. Nothing is alluded to in technical terms, and the pamphlet is so simply worded as to be intelligible to any one who can speak English. It was ordered that 10,000 copies of it be print ed and circulated. New York Legally Apportioned. Saratoga, N. V., Sept. 22 —The gen eral term of the third department of the eupreme court handed down a decision in the legislative apportionment case, denying tbe application for a mandamus and injunction, and declaring the ap portionment of the extra session to be constitutional. flip I i V |r * DELICIOUS V Flavoring Extracts NATURAL FRUIT FLAVORS.
