HAGAN HOLDS THE HOSPITAL.
Its Present Occupants All Speak Well of Him. Jones, the Alleged Bibulous Nurse, Under Questioning. The Holmes Matter Siftad Down to s Very Shallow Complaint -A Com ical Scandinavian ou the Witness Stand. Tbe investigation ol the conduct ol the county hospital by Superintendent Hagan waa continued yesterday morning by the supervisors. Theodore Moeltke, sworn —Had been a day nurse under Dr. Hagan, and like wise under Dr. Brainard. Dr. Hagan made a practice of coming around to visit each of the wards in the hospital every morning. He also came aronnd at night, in the best of witness' belief, bnt he could not swear to that, because be was only there in the daytime. The wards in charge of the witness have been scrubbed every week. Witness then gave a lengthy description of tbe bill of tare provided for tbe patients in tbe hospital. The fare was tbe same as that under Dr. Brainard. 'In the latter part of that gentleman's time the food was not so plenty as in Dr. Ha gan'a time. At first the food was scarce, and a good deal of grab bine en sued, but Dr. Hagan found out about it and increased the supplies. Witness bad met quite a number of the King's Daughters, and his impres sion waa that they were trying to intim idate the patients to get them to make complaints against the management. Had not stated to the King'B Daughters that the food waa bad or that he could not get medicine for tbe patients. De nied all utterances attributed to him by the members of tbe King's Daughters, but admitted he had said something about the food not being good about tbe time Dr. Hagan succeeded Dr. Brainard. When asked if he bad not complained bitterly to Mrs. Landt about how the newspapers had whitewashed Dr. Ha gan by giving one sided accounts of tbe investigation, witness denied having eaid so; and likewise denied having told Mr. Clark be would subscribe for his paper because it was the only one that had told the truth about tbe hospi tal management. When questioned as to tbe statement signed by him and published iv the Timet of Joly 15th, he said it was true as stated therein. The statement was intended for the time of its publication, and bad no bearing on the previous time in the hospital. Denied having made any appointment with Mr. Clark for a secret meeting so as not to be seen by tbe hospital authorities. Witness said, in reply to a question by Jndge York, that be did not know of any scheme on tbe part of Mrs. Landt and Mr. Clark to get Dr. Hagan out and* Dr. Post put back, bat thought it qnite probable, be cause Dr. Post was quite a "lady-like m»n. [Laughter. 1 lo reply to a question about hot water, witness said there has always been plenty of hot water lor bathing patients, J. Clark Hill was the next witness, and bis evinence was not particularly Important. He ia a patient in the hospital, and says he always had been treated in tbe kindeet way by Dr. Hagan and hie assistants. None ol the King's Daughters had sought to intimidate him in oider to get bim to make a statement against the hospital management, but, several others had hinted that a complaint would be acceptable. Witness told them he bad no complaint to make, co there the thing ended. C. U. BROWN. C. H. Brown volunteered a statement correcting his previous evidence, that Dr. Parsons said, "You ladies have lied enough," by saying his wife had told bint Parsons said, "You have been mak ing false statements about this place." Mil IIA 1.1. MORIARITY. Michael Moriarity was the next wit ness. He said bis treatment wae very good, and food more plenty since July. Had no complaint to make to Dr. Ha gan, but had found him always kind and conrteour. KM. I.A VONTANK. Mrs. E. L. La Fontane sworn. Is a married woman and waa confined in the hospital. Mrs. Landt had been there and spoken* to her occasionally. Had no acquainta nee with the King's Daughters. Never knew that Mrs. Hagan bad aeked tbe ladies to give her baby away to somebody else for adop tion. Have a husband, bat he is not here. Several ladies came and asked ber if she waa not neglected by the nurses or pbjsicians. Witness told them she was very comfortable and bad no complaint to make. M. MU M/. M. Scbultz was next sworn. Was ad i milted 10 tbe hospital on November 23d. Had been an inmate of charity hospitals in Rio Janeiro, Melbourne and Barba doea, and thought tbe treatment quite as good here as in Melbourne aud better than in Bio de Janeiro or Barbadoes. Never had any conversation with Mrs. Landt. Heard her talking with another of the patients about tbe bad lood, bnt the man said ho had no fault to find with bis treatment. k. n. o'bribn. K. R. O'Brien (.worn—Said he was •uiployed in tho laundry of tbe hospital, t»n had been a patient in tbe same wards where Moe was night nurse. Moe bad neglected the patients at night and turned them over to the day nurse in a wet and dirty condition on several occa sions; was there from June to Novem ber as a pntieot. since which time be had been employed in tbe laundry. When asked as to Snyder's case, wit ness said Snyder was a fever patient and got up and exposed himself so be got a relapse aud died. Mr. York—"There is a leprosy pa tient tn the hospital. Does be do wash ing for other parties besideo himself?" "The man ia given a tab to himself. He does his own washing, and carries the clothes down to the cellar to dry. Water in which his clothes are washed i« never allowed to mix with water used for washing clothes belonging to the other patients. Have no friends nor relatives here, and no money save what I get from tbe county. Have re sided here about ten months." Mr. Rush—"Did yon not tell Mrs. Snyder about a man delirious from fever attacking her husband while he was sick in bed?" ' No sir." Richard Hunt, sworn—Have been •«ployed in the hospital three years as day nurse. Have been a poiition to ccc how tbe hospital waa ran. Thought it waa wall conducted by Dr. Brainard, and aa well, if not better, under Dr. Hagan. Patienta are aa well cared for in a medical way and much better fed. He ia unremitting in hie attention to patienta, and I do not know of any pa tienta being neglected by Dr. Hagan. Moe waa careless, and left tbe beda of patienta wet from urine on repeated oc casions. That waa the reaaon of hia discharge. Dr. Hagan baa been nni lormly kind and courteoua in hia inter course with patients at tbe hospital and I have never heard him apeak abruptly to them or any of them. Do not know of any patienta being left for eeveral days without being given medicine or being examined immediately. T. O. HARRINGTON. T. G. Harrington waa aworn. He ia a day nuree at tbe hoapital. Does not know of any patient being negiected at any time, either in the way of examina tion or medicine. The patients in tbe ward where I work are helpleaß and un able to take care of themselves at any time. Know of no complaints about lack of cleanliness. Have all I can do to keep my owu ward clean. Wbb a day nnrse in the wards where Moe was night nnrsa. He neglected most of them, and their beds were saturated with urine in the morning. Several of tbe beds were wet and dirty with fecal matter on sev eral occasions. Adjourned to 2 p. m. Afternoon Session. There waa a perceptible decreaae in the attendance aince the morning ses sion, but the ladiea were out in their usual etrong force. C. T. Duniway aworn—Am a nuree in the county hospital and have been so for eight years. Do not see any material change in tbe management of tbe hos pital since Dr. Brainard left. Had charge of the surgical ward. Operations are sometimes to be performed by Drs. Kurtz, Mat Gowan and others. The hospital id always kept, very cleanly and nobody has complained within my hear ing. Do not know of any man having fractured limbs being told by Dr. Per sona "Shut up. what in hell are you cry ing about?" Never caw rough neage by Dr. Paraons towards a man brought in with broken leg. Plenty of hot water was to be had at all occasions but think three days in the week are enough for all ordinary purposes. Was not so much the supply of water last May but the unnaual number of men that caused tbe trouble. Mr. Hanley—What doyou know about a cat being seen in your ward with a human heart in its mouth? "I never caw anything of the sort in my life." Mr. Rush—Do you say Dr. Hagan al ways makes daily rounds and visits your ward each day? "Yea sir." "Have you cot sometimee given pa tients no bath for several days after arrival?" "Sometimes I have, but it waa gen erally in cases where they were ex hausted by travel. Have been there eight years, and my wages are $40 per month. Never told Mrs, Landt tbe hos pital waa in a bad fix and it was time that somebody waa doing aomething with it." W. M. DAVIS. W. M. Davis, sworn —"Am deputy sheriff at county hospital and have charge of the insane at that place. Have been employed there as nurse, and subsequently as deputy sheriff; for tbe last two years. Have noticed Dr. Hagan in hia intercourse with tbe patients. He is uniformly kind and gentle toxrard them " "Did Mrs. Tiscbauaer escape from the. hospital while you were in charge of her?" "She djd, but she was not in my charge at the time of heir escape;" Continuing further, witnesa aaid he waa in charge of the operating room fur the last two years. He knew nothing about a cat eating a human heart and caw nothing of it till be read of it in the papers. He had Been a dog with a human hand in hie mouth, but thinks he dug it; he knew the feeble-minded girl called May and never caw any man hugging ber. « C. P. DIMEWAY. C. <T. Dimeway recalled: Supervisor Hay—"Where did you find those -hands?" "In the grounds near the hospital, and I buried one of them under the front porch of tbe building. The other was preserved in alcohol." D. Liebesman sworn : "I entered the hospital September 21et and left there November 26th; was well cared for by Dr. Hagan, and tbe nurseß invariably treated me we.!." "Did you not complain to Mrs. Landt that you bad not been given medi cine?" "I told her I wanted cod liver oil, which Dr. Parsons refused to give me, and that. I went to Dr. Hagan with a complaint, and be ordered cod liver oil to be given to me at once. I never beard any abrupt language from Dr. Hagan ot any time. My ailment is pulmonary consumption." H.

A. M. SHELLEY. A. M. Sbelley, sworn—Was taken to the county hospital with typhoid fever; Dr. Hagadorn attended me within an hour after my arrival; was thereover 11 weeks. The doctore were very kind and so were the nurses; they gave me specially light diet, and I attribute my recovery to their good nursing. Mr. Rush—"Did you know a patient named Holmes and, if so, what was bis treatment?" "He was treated just the same as I was, and I was never treated more kind ly in all my life." J. B. RGBB. J. B. Robb, sworn—Has been an in mate of the county hospital ever since January last; is afflicted with phthisis aud has been invariably well treated by the officers and nurses. C. M. JUNKS. C. M. Jones, sworn: Have been in the county hospital as a patient and am aiso in charge of a ward, ever since the 24th of last May. Was examined by physicians on the same day I arrived there. Dr. Hagan visited the wards twice a day as a general thing. Cross examined by Mr. Rush: Have bad charge of a convalescent ward four months. Receive no money, but get my board and medical attendance.

Charles Dunham, sworn -"Was taken to tbe county hospital last Juoe, ill with inflammatory rheumatism, and placed in a ward under charge of Mr. Hart.- Dr. Hagan made an examination of me im mediately I arrived, and came to see me in company with Dr. Hagadorn one hour later. Dr. Hagan has done me a great deal of good and I needed it, for I had a very bad leg. He has been always kind, and tbe nurses always treated me well. Am still an inmate of tbe county hospital." J. H. Brought, sworn—"Had a runaway accident on tbe Ist of October, which produced a big ulcer on my leu. Was taken to the county hospital and my leg was veiy sore. Dr. Parsons met me on arrival at tbe hospital at 7:30 p. m., and that night three doctors examined my leg, and gave me a solution that night. It was applied by tbe nigbt nurse. Next day they cut my leg open and cleaned out the wound. Dr. Kurtz came and performed the operation of skin graft ing. Tbe doctors always were very kind, and tbe nurses uniformly were gentle towards patients." J. H. Murray, s*orn —Am a patient in the county hospital, and have been there since October 30th with local tuberculosis in the right arm. The food was excellent and always clean. H. W. Coverdill, sworn —Was an in mate of the county hospital with typhoid fever. I can only say now what I said to Dr. Hagan when I first went there —that I bad been in hospitals elsewhere, but never was as well treated in all my life. Adlourned till Thursday, January 4, 1894, at 11 a.m. READY TO REGISTER. THE CERTIFICATES ARRIVE FROM WASHINGTON. Depntles Appointed by the Revenue Collector—The Registration to Commence on the Third. Tbe toTTowing from the Ban Francisco Chronicle of Friday shows that Chinese registry under tbe McCreary act will commence in a few days: Internal Revenue Collector Wellborn received 10,000 regiatratioa blanks, with books and other papers, from Washing ton yesterday afternoon. The circum stance has an important relation to the work of Chineae regiatration in this city, for it heralds the real beginning of pro ceedings in that matter. Until the blanks were received all preparations for tbe work were of a doubtful character, and neither Wellborn nor bis officers knew positively when the first good sized batch of Chinese would be able to receive certificates. This uncertainty has now been dispelled and the Mon golian reaidenta of lhe eouthern district' of California will be able to procure papera entitling them to residence in the Uniterm States within four or five days. The regiatration of the Chinese will begin on January 3. A large number of tbe blanks received by the collector yes terday will be sent to different towne throughout the dietrict thia morning. Mr. Wellborn ie now having a circular printed in Chinese, announcing the fact that the work is about to commence and informing the Mongolians of the provis ions of the law. These circulars will be. ready for distribution tomorrow, and by Monday they will be posted in a num ber of towns in the southern pare of the state. The circular is much the same as the one issued at the time the neary lew went into effect, with the exception that a few changes have been made to fit the latter act. The circular recites that all Chinese liable under the exclusion law to deportation, unless they are possessed of registration papers, must procure those certificates before May 3, 1894. The Chinese are also notified that the fact of former registration will not count nnder the new law, and they must again comply with the government reg ulation. Collector Wellborn has made arrange ments to have registration bureaus in San Jose, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Bernardino, Fresno, Bakersfield, Tulare. Martinez, Oakland, Alameda and Bishop Creek. Collector Wellborn made appoint ments yesterday of five men to positions in tbe regular revenue service. The ap pointees were I. Norton and S. Lucy, recommended by Senator White; Miss Burke, H. tiuttetadt and J. W. Welch, recommended by Congressman Maguire. A NEW MOVEMENT. A Well Known Kallroad Man and Hia Idea. All over the United States wherever lailroad men are known Peg Williams is known. In a lone, connection with the East Tennessee and other roads he ac quired an acquaintanceship that ia ac broad as the land. He drifted into tbe specially of mov ing colored people, and during tbe past 10 years bas shifted fully 100.000 colored people from tbe Carolinaß and Georgia into other Southern states. His sunny character and quaint ways made him an array of friends. He has conceived tho idea of eending colored people to California, and has his project well nnder way. A Herald reporter caw him last night and Mr. Williams informed bim that fully 200 families of colored people are getting ready to come to Southern Cali fornia from Georgia. They are people of some means, one of them, J. C. Shell, being worth MO.OOO. He bought property in Los Angeles a day or two ago. These families will go to various points in Southern California and Mr. Williams says that if the people want first-class labor by people who will be come good citizens he will do his part to solve the labor problem in this section as far as tbe Chinese are concerned. Peg Williams is a long ways from home, but has found the world pretty small and has ran across many friends. The details of his plan of colonization are given in another column.

PILLS, POTIONS AND POWDERS All Discounted by flTarnon's Hands and Prayer. Is This Trickery, Fraud or a Modern Miracle . Anything From a Back Ache to Apo plexy Cored by a Frayer—Some Alleged Wonderful Ex amples, Etc. The Temperance temple, at Broadway and Temple etreet, was crowded again last night to bear Warnon, tbe evan gelist, in his exhortations, and witness hia exhibitions of tbe faith cure by the laying on of handa. The atage had about SO old men and women eeated upon it as examples of the faith cure when the reporter entered, and he bad about all he could do to get a Beat, for the preacher was giving one of hiß voluble supplica tions, which would defy tbe ablest of atenograpbers to keep anywhere near him. He rolled out bia gilded aphorisms and rounded periods faster than the ablest writer could conjure up the ad jectives alone. He cried out, "Brethren and sisters, now is the day and now is the hour in each man's and each woman's life to ac cept our blessed Savior as the sole safe guard against sin. He will lead you into green pastures and make you a home by the pure waters. He healed tbe Buffering sinners of old and He will heal your pains now if you will only torn aside from the paths of sin and pin your faith upon Him. Tbe service of Christ is tho greatest of all liberty, but to serve Him faithfully you must put away all other fealties and allegiances. Cast aside your creeds, your isms, your an cient faiths, but you must leave them all aside if you accept Christ. There are faiths and truths that may not exist in your creed, but lay aside your preju dice. "Don't Bay I took in my creed with my mother's milk and cannot lay it aside. Christ giveß you what you need, which is life, regenerating life, that we cannot get elsewhere. You cannot rise above sordid earth without His saving power and that of tbe Holy Ghost. We are newborn children, just breathing and that is all, and we need the regenerating power of the Holy Ghost. One breath of power of the Holy Ghost nerves your arms, you become strong men, soldiers in full armor aud fit for battle. Blessed ie the man who is filled with the- Holy Ghost. The full power of the Holy Ghost is the regenerator of mankind by its magic strength. God can accomplish anything. He nerved David's arm and gave him the smooth stone to pierce the giant's forehead who led the forces of sin. The Holy Ghost will reveal Christ to us in all His regal magnificence. Join His forces and all mankind shall yield to you, because you are armed in the panoply of divine power. Once the heavens are opened to you with all Christ's power, you shall be the victor and gather golden sheaves from every hillside of the blessed harvest which Christ vouchsafes to the laborers in Hia field. All tbe hosts of Satan shall yield to you as you march to your unbroken triumphs. Give but your eouls into His keeping and tbe hosts of Satan shall flee from yon. They cannot harm you, for you ahall be aa invulnerable aa the heel of Achillea. "You shall rise to conquer, as did the great hero and mighty Swiss leader, Arnold Winkelried. who beat back tbe Austrian forces four centuries ago; cut their way through tbe serried ranks of the Austrian army, crying, "Make way for liberty." On the hilltops at sun down when the sheep are called in for tbe night, the shepherds breathe hia name and bleßß their liberty-loving hero of 400 years ago. Make yourselves, therefore, tbe soldiers of liberty, for you are patriots of the army of Christ, born in the divine light of the purified and regenerating power of the Holy Ghost, A like victory awaits you aa you go forth to crush down the power of the saloon and the gambfing den in this fair city of Los Angaleß. Now let us all eing one veree of that good old hymn, Coronation." The hymn was sung, and then Mr. Warnon bet:an to call up those who had come to be healed. Tbe preacher sur veyed his audience, and then eaid: A SPINAL CURVATURE CASE. "Bring forth the child with spinal curvaturo who has been afflicted for years. I mean tbe child we operated on last night," Warnon said. "Oh Jesuß, plant Thy conquering power over disease into the frame of this afflicted child. If not tonight, some other night, as soon as Thy loving will and power may dic tate. Now, dear child, pray to Jesus and thank him for your restoration. You are straigbter now than you were last night." AN APOPLECTIC JUMPER. Tbe next man waa an apoplexy pa tient wbo eaid be bad nervous quiver ing, bat it bad been leaa since tbe evan gelist had prayed for him. Warnon eaid: "Lord Jesus, heal this man in Thy beloved name." He then made the man put bis feet upon the back of a chair, and put him through his paceß around on the stage, saying: "See how the Lord has helped him already." The audience applauded aa the man walked. Warnon held him by the arms, saying: "Jump! I will hold you so you don't fall. Now," he continued, "see this man wait, jump and turn around. I lay my hands on bim in the name of tbe Lord Jesus. Amen!" THE DEAF WOMAN. Next came an alleged deaf woman. He whispered a question and she gave a direct answer at once. He laid bis hands on her, cryine,"Praisethe Lord." He then went on to Bay that the woman had been afflicted with blood poisoning co bet wrists conid not be turned. "Now you see how her hands move. I now lay my hands upon you in the Awarded Highest Honors World's Fair. U^J^Powder: The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powaer.—No Ammonia; No Alum. Used in Millions of Homes— 40 Years the Standard. name of Lord Jesus Christ. Do you feel pain now, sister?" "None now, thank you." "Praise God. Let all adore him in His gracioua work." THIS WAS A BTIFF-NECKED WOMAN. Next he brought up a woman with a stiff neck. She aaid ahe had not been able to move about ao well aa eince he laid hia handa upon her head. Yester day she aaid that ebe grew tired of combing ber hair, but ahe feela much improved , co ahe does not tire with that effort. "Dear aiater, I lay my handa on yon, praying your faith may make you well aa ever you were. Come up here tomor row; I will help you." IT WAS IN HER EYE. Next came a lady with chronic neural gia in the eye, which the doctora called induration of tbe eyeballs. "Lord, grant thia aiater help and help her failing eight aud her palpitation oj tbe heart. In the name of the Lord who giveth etrengtb, hear her tows to walk with Jesus, and help her, oh Lord." "Now I want a committee of two tv examine her and say if ber heart beats regularly and naturally." The committee reported favorably. IJ Kit ARM WENT UP. The next lady had a stiff arm, but be made ber put her arm above her bead, while he cried: "Praise God for His aid to this afflicted woman. Sister, thy faith hath made thee whole." HE II KM) VP AN ARM. Tbe next caee, an old man afflicted with locomotor ataxia, had not been able to uee both bia lege. He bad to walk with canee, and could not lift his feet off the ground. "Before I touch you again, my friend, walk out here. You could not lift your arms last night; lift them now. I pray the Lord Jesus to visit you with has saving grace and help you for His name's sake. (Here he made tbe man jump.) You now see how he has re gained the use of his diaintegrated nervea. Dear brother, I rejoice to ccc that the Lord haa helped you. You could not have done that laat night. May tbe dear Lord ever abide in yonr heart, and your faith increase. Come again tomorrow. Your'a shall be my care: come tomorrow afternoon." HER VOICE CAME BACK. Next was a woman who was very weak with spinal disease but aaid tbat eince the laying on of bande laat night her voice waa atrong again and her strength came back to her. VI touch your spine in the name of tbe Lord and ask Him to heal you." ' A CURE OF RHEUMATISM. Next was a lady with articular rheu matism. "Now you see how she aat down with out touching her chair. In tbe name of the Lord Jesus I lay my handa on you and pray be will make your frame atrong again. There, get up now, all by your self without touching the chair. There, aiater are you better?" "Yes." "Thank God, you are saved. Coma tomorrow; don't touch the chair. Good Mght, and God send help from heaven." It waa after 10 when the reporter left, and people were nocking up to tbe stage to shake Mr. Warnon by the band and congratulate him on hia success. He holda forth again thia afternoon and evening at Templars' hall. BASEBALL. A Number of Contests and Thalr Feat ures.
