EXPERTS NOT MUCH USE.
HOW TO CORRECT IfXTRAVAGAJUR
IN COUNTY MATTERS.
The Boonotnloal Tendencies or the Dis
trict Attorney Should Be Booour
aged and the Vigilance of
the Supervisors.
"This exporting of tbe books of
county officers may be necessary," said
a prominent county official to a reporter
yesterday, "but it might as well be left
undone for all the good It does."
"it shows the condition of the books,
doesn't it?"
"Yes, it does tbat, but where are yoa
'at' thenT Of course the books are kept 1
correctly. There may be clerical errors,
bnt the System of book-keeping is all
right, and when the experts get through ,
tbey generally find the books correctly 1
kept. Why shouldn't they? Do yon
suopose tbs leaks are going to be shown
on the books in such a way ai to become
apparent to the public. No, sir, the
books balance nicely and they are
meant to do so. Yet there is constantly ,
increasing extravagance in the manage
ment of the county affairs iv this .
cjunty."
"if the hooka are all right where can
you put your finger on the leaks then T "
"In the claims that are put in and al
lowed, my friend. There's where it
needs the argua eyed watch dog. It
comes In in the employment of more
men than is necessary to do tbe work,
in tho charging of more for certain lines
of county expenditure!) in the asßess J
ment and collection of taxes, in the
road work, in the thousand and one
items that are constantly being shoved
tbrongh the board of supervisors. Care
ful aa they may be they cannot detect
, all the extravagance and all the leaks.
They necessarily are obliged to depend
more or lees on connty officers for es
timates in the various expenditures of
their offices. Tbe handling of the
levenues of Los Angeles county ha?
grown to be a big thine, and it requires
a small army of employees to compile
the books and do the work. The very
case which bas been mentioned, the
computation of taxes by tbe anditor, ie
a caee in point. Tbe auditor says it will
cost about 12000, while there are men
who claim to know, who pbv tbey can
do it and will do it for (700. Quite a
wide margin tbat, between the two es
timates. That's the way the money
goes."
"Should not the experts discover
such things?"
"They should, but they don't. Tbey
are machines who are satisfied when
the figures come out right. That is all
they have to look after. No sir, it is ln
the allowance of claimß. When a claim
is allowed and goes on the books that
settles it as far as they are concerned.
They may tbink it extravagant, bnt
their minds are not hired to think out
side of certain lines. When the figures
balance they are satisfied."
"You evidently think the check on
extravagance Ib not in experts? "
"Right you are. It is in a vigilant
district attorney and board of super
visors.
I have noticed muttering* from vari
ous officials about tbe district attor
ney's office scaling down their demandr
and reporting adversely on all torts ■>!
claims from a few dollars up to • gOr»l
many. According to my way of think
ing tbat is a good sign. The »li >>■ '*
pinching somewhere. .Naturally such
attention to details draws down tlpo'i
that official criticism and denunciator!
But don't you, forget tbat, even, .11 i«
should go too far. it is a leaning in 'l o
right direction."
"The tendency is for unnecessirv
pensee to creep in even where con
officials are not trying to do any) • •
illegal, and where the bills are forn '
ized by an impartial and firm board f
supervisors and their legal advisors,
will do more towards a clean adminis
tration of county affairs than all the ex
perts in the city. Why, the supervisor*
have got almost unlimited power in the
matter. The law clothes tbem with it,
and it is a tremendous task for five men
to grasp the immense amount of de
tails necessary if they perform tbeir
duties conscientiously. Yet tbey are
well paid, and there is no excuse for
them to allow any great amount of ex
travagance to creep in. They work so
quietly that they ought to be punched
up every once i.i a while."
Caught In the Tolls
Of that lurking foe, chills and fever, we often
st-uggle vainly to free ourselves from Us
clutch. Palliatives there are without number,
but If you want a real remedy, as of course yoa
do If afflicted with this abominable malady,
hasten to procure and persistently use Hostet
ter's Stomach Bitters. If you follow this sug
gestion, i>ermanent restoration to health will
reward you. Every form of malarial disease is
permanently eradicated by the Bitters, which
Is likewise a reliable safeguard against mala
dies of this type. Not alone on this continent,
but throughout the troplos, It Is justly regarded
as a complete antidote to miasma poison ln ale
