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.

copiously from the sermon preached by
Dr. Campbell referring to the library
and the discovery of La Cadet 00 Ita
shelves. It avera that bis remarks held
her rexponaible for tbe admission of the
book into the library; tbat she is held
up by him «c unworthy of being in tbe
position she holds, and charges tbat
this attack upon ber was malicious and
unfounded.
She claims that she has been damaged
by tbe prayer and tbe sermon $50(10,
and asks judgment for that amount.
REV. CAMI'UKI.L BEARS THE NEWS.
Rev. 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.

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.
THE ATTORNEY'S NEW" HOME.

licitor for the Southern California rail
way, has purchased from R. T. Nelson

and ie highly improved by coment
waikß, lawn, trees, plants and flowera.
The location commands one of the finest

the Southern Pacific Railway company,

AN OLD SCHEME REVIVED.
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
