SAYS HIS PRAYER IS SLANDER.
Miss Tessa Kelso Sues Rev. Dr. Campbell. One Outcome of the Obscene Book Exposure. Kit. Campbell Prayed for the City Librarian, Who Thlake That Sh« X' qnlree Damage* Therefor. The bold and fearless utterances of Rev. J. W. Campbell of the Mothodiet church in a sermon lent Sunday relative to the vile literature in the Las Angeleg >nb!jj« library, while met by the direct ore of that institution without resent ment, have caused the librarian, M 199 Tessa L. Kelso to make a fight which it il possibly hoped will serve to draw public attention away from the misman agement of tbe library. At 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon F. H. Howard and \V. I. Foley, as attorneys for Miss Kelso, filed a lengthy document in tbe county clerk's office, which proved to be a complaint against Hey. J. W. Campbell, pastor of the First .Methodist church, on Broadway, for slander, and in which the librarian asks for $5000 as a salve for her wounded feelings and the injury done to her reputation b) the sermon preached by the clergyman. The exposure of the presence in the library of one of the vilest books imag inable, which was made by tbe Herald, and which excited tbe widest attention In the city, brought out numerous ser mons last Sunday on the part of clergy men of Eos Angeles, and they all spoke in no uncertain mauner with reference to the stateof affairs shown by the news paper investigation of the library. Rev. Dr. Campbell was only one among several, and his remarks were not awbit more pungent than those of other gen tlemen or tbe newspaper; and still he has been singled out for the purpose of bringing this snit. The complaint is quite a spicy paper, and enters into the causes tor Miss Kel so's wrath in great detail. It starts out by referring to her being tbe librarian of tbe city library and dependent upon the profession of librarian for her liveli hood. Referring to the fact tbat Dr. Camp bell is the pastor of the First M. E. church of this city, the plaintifT states that she is not a member of that chinch nor affiliated with it in any way, nor is she subject to tbe discipline of the chnrch. La ber office, and nnder her manage ment, Miss Kelso says there are a large number of young female subordinates, and the library is daily visited by hun dreds of yenng girls. On this account it is indispensable, says the complaint, tbat tbe librarian be a person of un blemished moral character, and that there should be no impeachment of it by imputing to her a disqualification in a respect which tho office peculiarly re quires. Coming back to Dr. Campbell and the Methodist chnrch, the complaint states that it is a practice of the church when any of its members are guilty of im moral conduct for the pastor to publicly pray for such backsliding persous. "Whenever any person is piayed for," eaya the complaint, "the congregation understands it to be a charge made by such praying person against tbe moral character ot tbe person prayed for." With this prologue it is averred that Sunday morning, August 19, 1894, in bis church, before 309 or more persons, at tbe regular Sunday services, Dr. Campbell knowingly, maliciously and with intent to defame and injure the plaintiff, publicly prayed for her in words of the following tenor: "Ob, Lord, vonchsafe thy saving grace to the librarian of the Los Angeles city library (thereby meaning plaintiff) and cleanse her of all sin (thereby meaning plaintiff was a sinful and immoral woman); and make her a woman worthy of ber office" (thereby meaning tbat the was by reason of moral delinquencies unworthy ol her said office). Dr. Campbell, it is averred, knew tbe congregation understood the offering of tbe prayer meant that he as their pastor charged that plaintiff was unfit to hold the office of librarian aud intended the prayer to be understood as an accusa tion. It ie alleged that the accusation is false and malicious. For tbe Becond count the plaintiff al leges that she iB not a French scholar; has not, does not and cannot exercise any censorship aa to what French books may be admitted into tbe library, which has been exercised by the book commit tee of tha board of directors. It is alleged that no books are admit ted In the library save upon the censor ship and order of the book committee; that the plaintiff and committee have been zealous and painstaking in their endeavors not to admit improper beoks, •ad to remove any book which might be found unworthy, and at all times solic ited from patrons oritioisms to aid them in their censorship. Bin 1892 tbe committee purchased a large number of French books, and not withstanding their utmost endeavors among them was one Le Cadet, by Riohepin. The plaintiff had no part in the admission of tbe book into the li brary. It waa in fact an obscene book unworthy of a place in the library, bnt ita admission was without fault upon the part of any one, and especially with out the fanlt of the plaintiff. The real character of the book was not discovered nntil August 13th, when without having previously in any manner notified any one connected with the library, a news paper (tbe Herald) published the fact and violently attacked the administra tion of tbe library.

Campbell was sealed at a dinner party at the reßldenco ol S. P. Mulford, on Hill and Eleventh streets, when a HinAi.D reporter conveyed to him the newe of the filing of the suit. "Let her go ahead!" were his first words. "1 see nothing she can gain by such a strange procedure. She is being worked by others, tbat is all." Then after a moment's serious thought his face lighted up with a emile as he said: "VTeli, well, I hare never been sued before in my life; this is a new sensation for me." The gentleman refused to be inter viewed further in regard to the matter, excusing himself on the ground of a pressing demand for his presence among tbe guests around Mr. Mnlford's board. He, however, did express surprise tbat a similar suit was not brought against Rev. Will Knighten, Father Montgomery and a number of others who have publicly spoken iv much tbe same terms as those used by him. A SCHEME THAT FAILED. The BubALS force feels that it has a hone on somebody from the fact that a very elaborate plan was laid and car ried out to keep tbe news of ths filing of the suit last night from the llbb.u.d reporters, and the further fact that the plan did not work. The gentlemen who gathered together aud discussed the scheme and all agreed that it could be done, and did actually attempt to shut out the Herald from obtaining the news, will no doubt feel slightly ''marked down" today.

LOS ANGELES HERALD," SATTTTRDAY MORNING. AUGUST 25. 1894. DRILLED IN BATTLE STYLE. I How the Guardsmen Execute Their Orders. Things Getting Lively at Camp Santa Monte* The Battalion Drill of the Ninth and the Kxtended Oritur Drill of the Seventh Regiment. At Camp Santa Monica yesterday morning the Ninth regiment drill, as uiual. took up the fall time from "ad jutant's cell" to "recall." Lieut.-001. John R. Berry drilled tbe regiment in two battalions, Meior MeKelvey in com mand of the first and Major Presoott of the second. The evolutions of the regi ment were pretty well covered, includ ing movements in close order and in mass. Tbe two-battalion formation is working very satisfactorily. The arrival of Captain Spileman from San Diego gives a full corps of company command ers. The rank and fits of tbe Ninth marked attention to military etiquette, and they strictly adhere to the regula tions in the matter of saluting officers. Colonel Berry expects to call upon the battalion adj-itante, Lieut. Bradford Morse and, Lien 1 Heorge C. Fox, to act as adjutants at guard monnt before camp breaks. The temper of the regiment ie quiet and business like, and the horseplay of previous years is entirely absent. In tbe Seventh regiment, Thursday noon, at officers' school, Lieutenant Mc lver, military instructor of the camp, informed tbe officers that he would re quire a detail of one, and from come companies two, aquads to report on the drill grounds yesterday morning for drill in extended order, or the new way of handling men in battle. In the old way of fighting the companies and regi ments, etc., fought in line; i. c., side by side; bnt now the companies and regi ments formed at first in the same way but as coon as ordered to the front, it is altogether different. Everything seems to an old soldier to be scattered. There may be somewhere on the field 25 or 50 men together, but with that exception they are in squads of eight under a cor poral, 16 or 24 under a sergeant, and tbe root going to the front, making it appear almost as if it was every man for himself. Thiß is iv appearance only, as the men are more under control and in less danger of being hit than in tbe old manner of fighting. Everything now is for effectiveness, and "get there" is the order of fighting and very little military formality. Of course nothing can be said as to one company being better than another, as there were squadß Irom each com pany making up the body as a whole, and those under captains and lieuten ants from the different companies. Among the rest, Lieutenant Teal of Company O, our city auditor, was noticed. This was his first drill in ex tended order, and although but two months in the eervioe, he made no mis takes. All he needs is a little practice. Company C bad the honor of having the colonel's orderly from their detail yesterday. Ho is one of tbe cleanest, neatest and finest looking Boldiers at guard mount, and he deserves credit. W. M. Tomlinson is the soldier referred to. Musician C. W. Brooks of Compauy B was detailed as orderly for the adju tant captain, id. D. Alfonso. On Monday next Lieutenant Mclver will have extended order drill in the Seventh regiment, by battalion, which tbe officers are looking forward to with much interest. Lieutenant Ogden, tbe commissary officer of the Seventh, has a number of dogs of all kinds, colors and sizes, which he says he would dispose ot at reason able prices. This is the result of a joke the comrades played upon him. Major Starin thought he found a lady prowling about camp a few nights ago and was about to make a capture, but after falling over a lew tent ropes, caus ing a noise which was plainly audible during that still hour of the night, he found it was only the officer of the guard wearing a long overcoat, and who came near calling tbe guard, thinking that Eome oue was trying to rau the guard, hut the major's shoulder-straps »svod him. He is about camp now, tolling bow it all happened. The beautiful black stcei used by Lieu'fln in Mclver is the property of Mrs. Captain Alfonao and is greatly ad mireu by id . lie a uoble animal and BPcms to eoijy camp lifo us much aa the boy a. Colonel Sohrieber and staff wers nhotog.apbed in front of regimental headquarters yeaterday. Another group of officers with their wives and familiuu was also photographed. YeeterUay Colonel Sohrieber drilled all the non-commissioned officers ! the regiment as a company, and it ia safe to say tbat they oame out of drill much benefited by the instructions received from the colonel. From the feet tbat there are bo few prisoners reported by the officera of the guard aince camp waa establiebed, epeeks well for tbe discipline of tbe regiments. The officers and men ere loud in their praiae for tho commissary oilicer, l.ieut, M M. Ogdxti ol the Seventh, for the efficient manner In which lie conducts that department of the camp. The food is plentiful, well cooked and clean. Lieut. Charles Rice, commissary of the .Ninth, is one of the moat popular officers in camp, ou actional ot his good nature and tbe good food he furnishes. Mrs. Col. Scbrieberehows ber thought fuluoßß for the boya in blue by visiting the sick and bringing beautiful bou quets for them. Such women prove of great service to ths sol Jier during troub lous times. The drum and bugle corps of the Seventh are the admiration of all. Their marching and playing are perfect, and their quarters are well worth one's time to visit. Each tent bus four cots and a strip of brown canvas atretchad between, which are always kept clean and neat. Great credit is due the drum major, Sergeant R, W. Burns, and the principal musician, Sergeant Bradbury, who take great pride iv their organiza tion. The Ninth regiment band, the only one in camp, causes much good natured envy from the boys of the other regi ment. Tneir playing is almoit perfect, and the entire band, with Prof. Geo. Isbell, principal musician, are receiving deserved compliments on every hand. The following was the Seventh's detail yesterday : Officer of the day, Capt. F. L. Reynolds, Company F; commander of the guard, Lieut. F. J. Mctinwan, Com pany B; junior officer of the guard; Lieut. E. M. Hirachfelder, Company 1). An intsresting feature of the camp is the Ninth regiment artillery detach ment. It is composed of members o! Company C, located at Riverside, and is under the command of Acting Ser geant Major J. L. Maude, a member of the same company. The following arc the names ol the gunnsrs: Corporal R. P. R->e, Privates Frank E, Mitchell, tl. O. Higgins, Robert Meaoham, E, It. Nicholson, Jnraes Moore, Frank Label, Henry Meachatn. Last evening after mess the detach mtntgave short drill, which was very In camp. well executed, considering the short time the boys have been practicing, which was about five weeks before camp, the actual time not being quite 12 hours. The efficiency of the oquad ie largely due to Mr. Maude, who has been connected with the National guard in different parts of the country for about 10 years, and is well up iv military tac tics. He is a graduate of tbe Pennsyl vania military academy. Lieutonant-Colonel Berry of the Ninth ia doing some hard work with bis regiment ia the absence of Colonel Spile man. Colonel Berry is one of tbe best field officers of tbe brigade and bandies his men with ease, A camp hro was held laßt night in which both regiments joined, on the line between tbe two regimental drill grounds. Music, speeches and many other forme of amusement were indulged in. Brig.-Gen, E. P. Johnson will join Ad j -den. C. C. Allen at tbe camp this afternoon, when a brigade review will be held. It was announced to take place yesterday but was postponed until today. MONEY IN HIS POCKET. AN AGENT STEALS $3500 FR9M TflE GOVERNMENT. Savage Will Be Brought Back, If Found, to Stand Trial for a Number of Mta deeds. The report which Colonel Shelby, the special government agent, will file when he reaches Washington, concerning tbe investigation at the Perris Indian echool, will show that H. W. Savage, the erstwhile superintendent, is in a cad way. His system of robbery has netted him $3590, it is alleged. Aa thi:'- occurred in a period o! but one year's time, lie must have made a turn for himself on nearly every contract he made. It is known that ha came to Loa Angeles and bought clothing for him- Bell uud paid for it out of government money, lie bought furniture and raised the price on each article from one-third to oue-half. He bought cows for $75 and collected 120 Irorn the government. Iv the same manner he collected for 17,000 brick that were never used. He receiveda salary of $150 per month and his wife obtained $75 per month, and as his living espensea wore next to nothing there was apparently no occa sion for this wholesale robbery, save through udesire to accumulate a fortuno to retire upon. Oue of tbe worst items in the report is the charge o! immorality. In his cfiice, in tbe capacity of bookkeeper, wae a very comely young Indian girl. Her preeent condition, it is said, illustrates the depth of the man's villainy. The school is now in charge of a man named bray from this city, and the 100 and odd children are being well cared for. Had it not been for Savage's un scrupulous conduct, nothing to mar tbe very efficient character of the school would have been heard. It is intimated that nothing will be done by the government until October. At ' at time tbe matter will be pre gi.i.uu to the United Stateß grand jury for indictments on several charges, and then an eflntt to bring him to justice will be made.

A QUEER BRAZHIAXROAD. I'M xin A. Berry, the ex-consul of Brazil, who is now in the city, tells of an interesting railroad from banto3 to San Paulo. It is interesting, at least as viewed from the American standard of railways. The road ia 49 mile? long and consists of some very steep asceutß. The first five miles consists of a cable road, Bomething like our owu roads with the difference that tbe cable is attached to the cars and as one goes nn the other goes down, like the cage of a mine. The cable runs about a big drum. After the summit is reached the traveler gets into a regular passenger coach of the English pattern and is carried 13 miles farther. Then he must take the cable once more for a short way and then another level piece of road. There are about four of these elevations to climb in the 49 miles. The height is but 2400 feet. Fares are collected at each of the stations, the pas sengers being locked in tbe cars while in transit and accompanied only by guards. Another system of climbing mountains in vogue in that country is to have an engine with a big cog wheel in the center, like tbe Pike's peak road. Tbe country is very mountainous and these methods have to be resorted to. ATCHISON RECEIVERS. Kansas City, Aug. 23.—Receiver Wilson, of the Santa Fe system, passed through here on his return trip to Topeka from New York today. To a reporter he said that there would be no more developments in the affairs of the railroad until after the arrival of the new receiver, Mr. Walker, in New York. Walker is due to land in New York September 2d, and Boon thereafter the three receivers and (isneral Peck, D. B. Robinson, first vice presi dent, and some parties in interest will have a consultation. Mr. Wilson declined to state in advance what pol icy the receivers would adopt, but he was williug to say that he believed an entirely new policy would be inaugu rated, both in the management of the company's finances end fn transportation. Mr. Robinacn, be said, would remain at tbe head of the auditing department. Whether there would bo changes in any of tbe other departments he declined to say, but he left ths impression that there would. Receiver Walker, he thought, would make his official bead quarters at Chicago, tbat city being his home. r.I'H.DINO SKYWARD, From L. P. Lowe of the Mt. Lowe railway, who was in town yeaterday, it was learned that tbe work on the third section of the road from Echo mountain has been commenced. It is the inten tion to go on up to tbe summit of Mt. Lowe, which rises to a height of 6000 feet. Echo mountain, where the road now stops, is 35(10 feet high. It is the intention to have the road opened to Crystal sprint:, ahout half way np, by the Ist of December, in order to be urepared for the winter travel. It will then be possiblo to give the visitor a sleigh ride, a trip through roee gardens, and a dip in the ocean, all in one short day's ride and all plainly in sight of each other.

Last week a large meeting was held at Visalie, composed of the business men of the San Joaquin valley, for the pur pose of organizing a railroad company. It ia the revival of the old proposition to build a competing lino down the valley. The company was formed, and August 23rd tha articles were filed under tho name of the United Railroad company. Senator Langford. a wealthy rancher of Stockton, will be the president. WILL Bl BOLD AT AUCTION. It was decided the other day that tbe sale of the Minneapolis and St. Louis railroad by the sheriff will take place October 11th iv Minneapolis. It will take about $5,000,000 to redeem the property, aud it is practioally aatured that the Rock Island Bysteru will bid it in. That road already owns the biggest bunch of Minneapolis and St. Louis bonds, which can be turned over in the deal. PLEASED WITH THE COUNTRY. F. J.
