THE SQUIRMING OF A DISGRACED OF
FICIAL.
We find tbe following in tbe Express
•f yesterday:
It was discovered yesterday tbat the
city street department was doing some
work of repairing on Temple street and
Temple road that should have been
done by tbe Temple-street Cable com*
pany. The railroads, under tbe law, are
required to keep tbe streets in repair
between the tracks and for two feet out
side of the tracks, but some of the city
employees were found to be putting in
gravel and repairing all parts of the
street. As soon as the street superin
tendent's attention was drawn to it the
work was confined to the city's part.
Street Superintendent Watson explained
that some new men had gone to work
out there and had made the repairs gen
eral without knowing any belter. Ihe
work had been done unknown to him
self or the cable people. Deputy Biggs
eaid tbat not exceeding half a dozen
loads of dirt had been nut on the rail
road's territory, and tbat the latter
promptly offered to do as much work
for tbs city with its own men to make
up for tbe mistake of tbe green hands.
Street Superintendent Watson evinced
considerable caloric today over the way
in wbich the Herald reters to tbe mat
ter. He said tbat because be went into
the office as a Demoorat tbe Herald
tried to control him and make him
''divvy;" and when it found that it
couldn't do so tbat paper attacked him
maliciously on many oocaaiune. ia i«
noderstood the Taxpayers' Protective
league was instrumental in calling at
tention to the city employees doing work
belonging to private parties.
In the classic language of Mr. Waokel
ford Hqneers of Dnheboy'e Hall fame,
"Here's richness lor you." Because tbe
Herald, true to its mission, exposes the
shortcomings of S.inerintendsnt Wat
son's office, that individual ia repre
sented by the Express as saying that
tbis journal, because be was elected as a
Demoorat, tried to "divvy" with him.
If this derelict official ever made nse of
such an expression be lied. He should
long ago have been removed from his
offioe for scandalous delinquencies, and
below we enumerate some of them aa
found by tbe grand jury :
In a partial report made by tbe grand
ury of Loa Angelea county May 10th
last they devoted nearly the entire re
port to the administration of Street Su
perintendent Watson's office.
They refer to the shortage found in
the office and the claim by Superin
tendent Watson that $878.40, alleged to
have been left in the office by Superin
tendent Hutchinson, his predecessor,
was not so left. In commenting upon
tbe dispute between these two officers
tbey cail attention to tho danger of aucb
a loose conduct of tbe office.
Referring particularly to the manage
ment o! the office by Superintendent
Watson the grand jury said that com
petent engineers under their instruc
tions had made examinations of Btreete
eonßtrncted and approved by the super
intendent, and had in no case found
them constructed according to specifica
tions. The work on various streets so
examined 1b given with details, the
most striking delect being shortage oi
gravel amounting in every contract to a
considerable percentage of the coat.
They found cute where sidewalks were
10 to 11 feet wide instead of 12, and cases
where street assessments were compro
mised with property holders, in one of
tbem an assessment of $1700 being com
promised for $700.
Referring to the embezzlement of pub
lic funds by Watson'B chief deputy,
Stewart, the grand jury found tbat tbat
embezzlement caused the keeping ot a
proper oash book, but tbat there is
soarcely any record of other business
done; that there is no system of books
kept in the oflice, although the charter
clearly provides for it.
The grand jury also found that at least
one laborer with a team paid fifty cents
a day for a six months' position, amount
ing in all to $7S, and that other money
was collected from employees by depu
ties, and that Mr. Watson admittod that
be bad known of the procesdiug and
■till retained the guilty deputies.
The grand jury recommended that no
money be handled in this oflice, and
tbat the street superintendent's office
be made a division of the city engineer's
department.
And more to the same purport.
When Join Ericaßon designed the first
ironclad war vessel, the little Monitor
of imoenshable renown, he little
dream.-d that the very next practical
teat of iron warships would come from
two Mongolian nations. It is more than
thirty years since the great battle of
Hampton roads, daring whioh time no
civilized nation has given to the world
anything like a practical test of the
modern line-of-battle ship or tbe armed
crnissr. The lesson tbat comes to us
from the encaruadined waves oi Corea is
none the less wholesome when its source
is considered, but wbioh of the great
enlightened nations has already begun
to take advantage of the tuition?
A GREAT CITY EMERGING.
For now thia long time past it haa
been fatbionabla for tha Loa Angeles
Times to talk about the superiority of
San Pedro to Santa Monioa as tbe place
lor a deep sea harbor on tbe southern
coast. This kind of twaddle is simply
remarkable (or its ceaseless iteration—
in fact, we may olaim tbat we have been
treated to a damnable iteration in this
line.
What are the facts?
We will pass many of these for the
time being. We shall embody many of
tbem in the Sunday iesne of tba Herald,
in which we shall publish the report of
the celebrated engineer, Mr. £. 8. Cor
thell, who is one of the most distin
guished specialists in his line in the
whole world. Mr.Cortbell's exhaustive
report will speak for itself, and we shall
add some editorial comments founded
npon local experience to its luminous
exposition.
For the present we shall apply our
selves to an editorial which appeared in
tbe columns of our esteemed contempo
rary, the Los Angeles Times, in its issue
of yesterday. Of course this article was
in line with the usual hebetudinous at
titudes of its editor. Homebody or
ottier, early in tbe day, loaded up this
puissant editorial person with tbe idea
that, somehow or other, he conld spite
somebody or other by advocating tbe
claims ol Stn Pedro as against those of
Santa Monica. We utterly repudiate
tbe idea tbat tbe engaging Dick Kerens
and tbe robust 8. B. Eikins, gentlemen
who are supposed to be largely interest
ed in the Terminal railway, have had
anything to do, by tbe profuse distribu
tion of stook, in the marked prefereuce
of tbe Times for San Pedro. God forbid
that we sbould insinuate anything that
we can't prove. But putting to one
side the motive of the Times, in show
ing such an illogical preference for San
Pedro, and suoh a rabies against Santa
Monica, we shall simply apply ourselves
to the extraot from the artiole from tbe
Ban Francisco Call, whioh our contem
porary makes the basis for its usual in
anities.
Saya th* o*ll, speaking of the ap
proaching Visit of tbe sub-committee on
commerce to form an intelligent judg
ment on the site for the looation of a
deep sea harbor:
The t«o locations speak for them
selves, bnt there are other considera
tions than those of topography and
hydrography. Tbe railroad will un
doubtedly advance plausible argu
ments that commercial connections will
batta» vSaetad at Santa Monica. Tbe
committee s>*>»«aM bo «*- .t,* .l.
commercial connections are essential to
the w jlfare not of the people, but of the
Southern Pacific. At Santa Monica it
can monopolize those connections —at
Hut Pedro it must share them with other
transportation agencies. Tbat is the
case in a nutshell.
How there ii certainly an air ot great
wisdom about tbia utterance of the Call.
The writer moat remarkably resembles
tbe individual of whom Shakespeare
wrote—
His face doth cream and mantle like a stand
ing pond,
Aa T?ho aliould say, "I am Blr Oracle, and when
I ope my mouth let no dog bark."
It ia ningular what an intereat the
newapapera, the boards of trade and
chambers of commerce of Han Francisco
take in having the right deep aea har
bor for Loa Angelea. In our Sunday
issue we shall have much more to aay
about tbia, with detailed referencea to
the offioial declarations of thoae bodies.
And how muoh they love us, these
people of San Franciaoo? How Bolici
tous they would be to have us make no
mistake aa to just how we should gain
great eminence as a city ? Not for the
world would they have ua do anything
; that would prevent ua from attaining a
commercial equality with or aupremacy
to themselves. It is the old story of
dona ferenks over again—the old, old
story oi the Trojan horse. They calcu
late greatly on our stupidity, and for
tunately they calculate in vain.
For every man of sense knows that if
Santa Monica is selected as the place tor
the deep sea harbor by the senate com
mittee there will be a city ol Los Angelea
reaching from here to the sea, and that
it will be tbe moat unique and beautiful
city on the footstool, with Santa Monica
as its water front. It is suught to pre
vent this ideal consummation by twad
dle about the Southern i'acihc company
owning aud controlling the Santa Mon
ica water front. This is stuff and non
sense. The Southern Pacific railway
owns ten times aa much of the water
front of San Pedro as it does of Santa
Monica. The Santa Fe road extends to
3anta Monica; and the officials of the
Southern Pacific railway, from Mr. C. P.
Huntington, through all its controlling
ipirits, have repeatedly offered to give
any other railway corporation equal
privileges with it«elf. if the United
States shall expend large sums of money
in creating a deep sea harbor at the city
by tbe sea it goes without saying that
the government will see to it that all
competing railways Bhall bave an equal
show before it spends a cent.
Meanwhile, there is one thing tbat
nobc d.' can deny, and th»- is that the
whole trend of the beautiful City of the
Angela ia towards Santa Monica. West
ward the tide of empire holds its way,
iv Los Angeles aa in all growing cities.
Settlement is creeDing out towards the
Gahuenga foothills and irom the Cien
ega and from all points. Soon an elec
trio railway will reach tbe beaoh at
Santa Monica, and yearly thousands of
Eettlers, with beautiful and productive
homes, are bridging tbe space between
the two cities. Soon they will be united
by a marriage which will matte the
t»ain one, and nothing can separate
thiß auspicious and indissoluble union.
LOS ANGELES HERALD SATURDAY MOR:NTNTI, SEPTEMBEP ?9, 1894.
It is manifest destiny, and tbe senatorial
committee will see, with oleaf* vision,
the inevitable, and give to tbe union the
sanction and benison —in tbe form of
liberal appropriations—that will be the
guarantee tbat another great commer
cial emporium has been born on the
rim of old ocean.
THE AMERICAN NEGRO.
Some good eastern people aro engaged
in reviving tbe old Liberian colonization
scheme under a new name, with a view
of deporting to Africa so large a portion
of the colored population in the south
as to render impossible the war of raoea
which now seems to be impending in
that section. Tne natural inorease in
the negroes since the emancipation is
the prime root of all this evil.
The negro's brutal natnre and bis
readiness to resort to violence are at the
bottom of the trouble. So long as the
negro was a slave, such a thing as in
decent assault npon defenseless women
was unknown. Just aa soon as the
emancipation proclamation had set him
free, the first thing he thought of was
the subjection of a white woman to a
fate worse than death. Thia, of conrse,
was followed by lynching, bnt that does
not seem to stop this brutal crime. The
only penalty that oan stop it ie emascu
lation, a law for which should be on
the statute books of every southern
state, whether the offender be black or
white.
It is with a view of averting the war
of races that this wholesale lynohlng
must precipitate, tbat aome good and
philanthropic people in ths bleak north
bave revived tbe Liberian colonization
scheme of forty odd years ago, and are
now aeeking to make it popular in the
south. It will be easy enough to get tbe
negroes there, but a very hard thing to
keep them there. The modern American
negro, born on a sugar or cotton planta
tion, is a widely different being from the
African savage who landed on Barataria
or Tybee island a hundred years ago. He
has become a creature of tbe American
climate and soil, and the climate of hia
ancestore haa already become a foreign
one to bim.
The Liberian coloniat* sent ont to that
country prior to the civil war got so sick
of their liberty tbat they would go down
on board the ships that touched at
Loando and San Felipe and beg to be
taken back to Amsrica, even if they bad
to be sold back into slavery. Tbey real
ized that "ole masßa" wasn't snob a baa
fellow, after all and were glad to get
back to "de ole plantation" at any sac
rifice.-
The truth is that the negro it lacking
in self-reliance and decision of ebaraoter.
You will find exceptions, of course, bnt
tbose exceptions only eerve to prove the
role. With the fierce climate of Africa
and tbe utterly lonely anrronndinga tbat
characterize every new colony, the negro
will become impatient in the land of hia
fathera and sigh for a return to Amer
ica. We admire the forealght that haa
led np to tbis sebeme bnt w* have onr

Cutting Down tha Seaside Train Service
•n Two Uoails—Tha Santa, fa's
Bervic„ at Chi
cago.
W. 8. Gedbe of Pioche, who has been
in tbe east for two months past on min
ing and railroad business, returned to
Salt Lake last week, and in an interview
with tha Herald of that city, speaks
very enconragingly of the outlook for a
railroad for Southern Utah at an early
day. Mr. Godbe will soon be joined by
De Lamar and other capitalists inter
ested in the venture, and the success of
the enterprise seems now assured. Upon
the arrival of tbe party thoy will ex-,
amine the districts to be benefited by
the new road. It is then that tbe main
line route will be decided upon, but that
wbich ia now greatest in favor is from
Milford sonth across the desert nntil the
Santa Clara ia reached, and then down
the atraam to Conger'a and ont over the
divide to the Virgin river conntrj, tak
ing tbe old California trail. Thie would
give the shortest ronte to California and
develop the southern part of the terri
tory. Branch lines would be run from
Desert Springs to Cedar coal fields and
to Pioohe and Bullionville.
It ia anticipated that operations will
even be commenced this year, and
when once nnder way there will be no
stopping nntil the roads are completed.
Tbe project contemplates the early con
struction of a standard gauge road from
Miiford to Bullionville, along the old
grade of the Union Pacific, and the im
mediate extension of tbe Nevada South
ern from Vanderbilt to Goode Springs, a
distance of 25 miles. This would leave
a gap of in the neignborbood of 200
miles to be crossed by the main line,
but with tbe feeders tbe company
wonld be able to reap such a harvest
that a completion of the system and tbe
making of a through line to California
wonld be matters of but a ebort time.
The old Union Pacific grade between
Pioche and Miiford, whioh the new com
pany will use, ia in good condition and
almost ready for the commencement of
steel laying. Tbe money for the roads
bas already been practically pledged,
and in the opinion of Mr. God be it will
not be very long before the actual opera
tions are commenced.
CHANGE OF SERVICE.
Commencing on Monday, Ootober Ist,
tbe Southern California railway will
pot on a train each way between Santa
Ana and Los Angelea, which will leave
Santa Ana at 7:45 a. m , arriving at Loa
Angelea at 8:48 a, m., and returning
leave Lot Angeles at 5:10 p, m., ar
riving at Santa Ana at 6:20.
On the same date, the following sea
side traina will be discontinned: Leav
ing Loa Angelea for Redondo and Santa
Monica at 9:00 a. m. and 1:35 p.m.;
leaving Inglewood at 3:30 n. m. for
latter pface'aV 1:26 p. m. and 5:15 p.
m.; also leaving Redondo at 3:50 p. m.
and 5:15 p. m.
Between Orange and Santa Ana traina
will leave Orange at 9:15 a. m. and 5:30
p. m., leaving Santa Ana at 9:05 a. m.
and 5:10 p. m. Other traini will run aa
at present.
NORTH AND SOUTH ARIZONA ROAD.
The Phoenix Gazette learns tbat trains
on the Santa Fe, Prescott and Pbicnix,
the north and sonth Arizona road, will
be running into Wickenburg November
let. There is on hand enough material
to lay 20 miles of track; all material for
the completion of the road has been con
tracted for; 2500 tons of steel rails are
now en route from Pittsburg; ties are
being sawed at Williams, and Irom 10 to
12 oarloads of them arrive at Ash Fork
daily ; four large vessels are on the way
from the sound with bridge timbers.
Unofficially it is annonnced that work
on tbe extension toward Florence of the
aame road will be commenoed at onoe.
THE SOUTHERN'S EASTERN LINE.
Tbe Midland branch in Southwest
Louisiana, extending north from a eta
tion near Lafayette, called Midland
Junction, to the new town of Eunice, ia
almost completed. Tbe new line, which
is 24 milee long, has about 16 miles oi
road completed and surfaoed. Track;
has been laid tbe remaining eight miles,
and surfacing will be pushed as rapidly
as possible. The erection of the station
and warehouaeß at Eunice has teen com
menced.
THEY TAKE OFF" THREE TRAINS.
The change in the time card on the
Southern Pacific takes off three round
trip trains between thia oity and Santa
Monica on Sunday. They will include
the 9:20 a. m., 1 and 5:45 p.m. going
from here, and the trains leaving the
coast at 4:20, 5:55 and 6:45 p. m. The
last train in the future from Santa
Monica on Sunday will be at 6p. m.
The laat train on week days will be at
3:30.
ANOTHER fast trais.
It is unofficially announced by the
Santa Fe people that a second train a
day will be added to the service to Chi
cago about the middle of October. It ia
said tbat it is more than likely that the
time of three aud a half days, which it
now requires to make the journey, will
be reduced several hours. In other
words, it will be the design to make the
time between Southern California and
Chicago jußtns short as possible.
LOCAL BREVITIES.
S. H. Gates hae been made the night
operator at Spadra. Thia ie owing to
the increase of bueinesa from that point.
The fast Sunset special wbich will be
started about November Ist ou the
Southern Pacific will make but two
stops between here and Yuma.
The new Bteamer schedule which goes
into effect today between here and Cata
lina provides two steamers a week.
Trains to connect will leave over the
Southern Pacific on Wednesday and
Saturday at 9:46 a. m., and will arrive
from there at 11:54 a. in. on Wednesday
and Thursday.

CONFLICTING EXPLANATIONS
Soma Htataments About That Week
Ttiat Do Not Davatell.
The publication in yesterday's Herald
of tbe facts regarding the street work
now being done on Temple street occa
sioned considerable comment around the
city hall. The impression which seemed
to prevail to some extent that the
Herald's account implicated Council
man Innes in any wrong doing is entire
ly erronsons. Indeed, it was not in
tended to assert tbat there was anything
beyond negligence in the matter, but it
waa pointed out how the thing might
bring a whole lot of trouble and the im
pression it was apt to create in the
minds of taxpayers.
Street Superintendent Watson's ex
planations yesterday were that new men
had gone to work ont there and had
dumped a few loads of dirt on the street
where tbey sbould not.
The foreman of the Temple-street road
stated positively that the city bad not
put any gravel on tba street where the
company should do the work. The fact
still remains, however, that all tbe
teams and men Working on the job were
working in together, hanlinggravel from
the same place and plaoing it wherever
Deputy Riggs and the boss of the job
ordered it, and it would take a Philadel
phia lawyer to figure ont which part of
tba work the city was doing and whioh
the cable company was doing.

Fitzgerald Murphy, the well-known
writer and playwright, had tbe nndeni
able pleasure of striking Anton Stoetzor
and two other men with a oane, in front

bim on account of family affaire in which
Stoetzer should have no interest. Stoet
zer ie a designer who has an office in the

friends passed aloof!. The designer

Stoetzer Ktruck bim in tbe face; he waa
besides seized from behind by Stoetzer's
friends. Murphy quickly brought hia

Gold Rock is going to ba atill better

tbe co-operation o( moneyed men to pat
up a 20-Btamp mill on bis claims adjoin
ing tbe Golden Cross. If this is done, GO
■tamps will be dropping in the district,
and the monthly clean-up ought to be
$50,000, and undoubtedly will be. Gold

CASEY'S BLACK CHARGER
A ROMANTIC STORY THAT WAS
NOT TRUE.
Casey Dlda't Dla Cpon tha Battla riald
and tha Starr af Hia Bride
Was Nothing but a
Fake.
A preaa dispatch was printed In many
papers over the country a lew days ago
regarding a handsome black horse which
waa being sent from Fort Keogh, Mon
tana, to "Miss Hunt, the daughter of
Colonel Hunt" of Los Angeles.
Tbsra was • very romantic and pa«
thetio tale connected with the horse. It
was all abont Captain Casey, Indians,
ballets, death on tbe battlefield, rider
less olunging charger, lovely yonng
lady waiting to marry Captain Casey
after the Indians were all killed off, and
the like of that.
When the horse got as far as Ban
Franoisco and tbey took him off the boat
to Ist bim get the kinks out of his legs
and stretoh himself, the San Francisco
papers sprang this romantic tale on tha
defenseless pnblio. Next day It was
telegraphed broadoaet.
The "black charger" arrived at San
Pedro yesterday on the Coos Bay and
will be brought to this oity today. Those
who look for Miss Hunt mounted proud
ly on his baok, waltzing down Spring
street, the focus of all eyes, will be dis
appointed. First, because there is no
such young lady as Miss Han t and, sec
ondly, because the horse belongs to Col
onel Swaine, who bas rscently pur
chased a ranch at Los Nietoa and who
will take tha horse down there.
Colonel Swaine knew Captain Casey
and liked bis horse, so after Casey waa
shot in the back by a lone Indian on a
lonely trail, be bought the horse and Is
now having It shipped down here. For
this reason the following sample para
graph taken from the article published
in the Call will have to be diluted a
little in order to make it go down
smoothly:
"Miss Hunt felt deeply the affliction
tbat was suddenly foroed npon ber by
the murderous Sioux. She waa loyal to
ber dead lover, never giving thought to
any enitor that pressed her for her
heart and hand. Bhe is pretty, accom
plished and much admired in both civil
anu military social circles, bnt it bas
always been eaid tbat ehe never seemed
to look favorably npon any partionlar
member of the male sex since the run
ning fight at Wonnded Knee."

Rather Hard on tha O. O. P.
Editors Hi: it a i d :—As I read the com
munication from a philoaophioal auar
cbiat in your issue of today, the
thought atruck me with great foroa that
it was rather hard on the G. O. P. in
saying hia vote would be cast for that
party, because it was more in line with
anarchistic doctrines than any other.
Regarding tbis as a base libel wbon that
party has made a specialty of stealing
by statute law since its inception, and is
too much in love with law and order to
steal in any other manner, I feel it your
doty to call tbe attention of Colonel
Otiß to this undeniable falsehood, tbat
the writer may he dealt with in a man'
ncr fitting tbe offense. Yours truly,
O. Severance.
