THE ASSOCIATED CHARITIES Officers and Directors Elected for the Ensuing Year CAPT. CROSS IS PRESIDENT Most of the Old Members Retain Their Places oa the Board The Annual Reports ef the President and Secretary—Much flaod Has Been Ac complished by the Association 5 At a meeting of the Associated Chari ties, held in tbe rooms of the association In the oounty courthouse yesterday after noon, the following oilioers were elected for the ensuing year: Captain lohn Cross, president; William Pridham, first •Ice-president; Mrs. C. Ducommtm, seo ond vice-presldnt; Mrs. H. O. Bath, sec eretary; T. J. Stewart, and the farmers and Merchants' Bank, treasurer. The fol lowing board of directors was also Chosen: W. C. Patterson, H. Jevne, B. Hayninn, Mrs. F. T. Griffith, Mrs. V. Ponet, Mrs. J. Johansen, Mrs. A. C Brown, O. T. .lohnaon, H. Newmark, Mrs. William Furgerson and Miss F. M. Wills. "The officers and the direc.ors to gether constitute the central council of the organization. The retiring president. Mr. Pridham, presented his report as follows: Members of tbe Central Council and Board of Directors, Greeting—Ladies and Gentlemen: Another year of the work of tbe association has cloned, and while the results fall far shurtof the original inten tions of its promoters at the time of its organiza'ion, yet much c ,od hns heen ac complished in the twelve months just pns-ud. Many deserving ones have sought relief and have received recognition and assistance; and many who have applied bave been found undeserving, and have therefore not met witb success in their appeals in this direction, thus clearly demonstrating the efficacy of the organi sation. Our organization has labored under Ibe most untortunate and perplexing difficulties, in being crippled by lack of means to carry on its work, and there have been times when the good wont would actually have stopped and toe so- | oiety suspended operations bnd it nit 1 been for the temporary assistance ren ■fared by otber and kindred associations and benevolent individuals in this city. It is a matter of some humiliation to those in the organization wbo are so earnestly striving for tho hetteiment of the poor, to feel that the public at luru-e ] takes so little interest in its affairs. It ia almost beyond belief that a city of the population of Los Angeles should show ao small a membership in its Associated Charities. It is proper to say that this condition is not the result of inactivity on tbe part of its officers; the public hns been constantly and persistently remind ed of tbe fact tbat its assistance is need ed, but results show that it has as per sistently refrained from responding witb membership due. Some steps should be taken by tbe In coming Doard of directors to enlist great er co-operatiion and interest, if it is ex pected io continue in ttie present field of labor. Steps bave already been taken to enlist the co-operat on of the city coun cil, and the president of that body has been addresed upon tbe subject of con tributing moneys from the public funds to assist in tl is work, but up to the pres ent time no response has bean received other ti an tbat the communication has been referred to the finance committee jf tbat body. The matter should be pur sued nntil something tangible bas been accomplished. It una been saggested by some that the moneys expended lor tha care of the Door of this city should ba derived largely from the public funds, and thus equalize the drafts upon property hold rs, instead of drnwin •s i heavily upon individuals who are charitably inclined. r, It is further urged that, in view of the (act that funds fiom the city treasury are applied to educational nml hospital purpusei, some should go toward the ' maintenance of a properly and legally organized charity institution incorporated Under the Biate laws. The agitation of Ibis matter and its presentation to the i county and city officials should oe pur- I sued by the incoming officers to deter- I mine wocther or not financial aid can bo j looked for from that source. I desire to further tall attention to the efficiency of tha worx of tbe Associated Charities dur ing tbe two years of its existence, and to remind its "friends and supporters that tnis city today is probably freer from un worthy applicants for alma than any simi larly located city en the roost;yet.admit ting this fact, :t ia found that by reason of the climatic attractions of Southern Caii- | fornia its resources are greatly overtaxed. It is proper at this time to again refer to the great necessity of establishing some sort of work test for able-bodied men who are finding their way to tnis city to live upon the earnings of others. A wood yard or some other means of furnishing employment for the itinerant beggar, thereby oompeiling him to give an equiv alent in lanor for what, he receives in food and clothing, is not only a right eous adjustment of accounts, but would be the means of driving from our midst a large class of peoplo whose absence from any community is n blessing. It is not only proper, hut due to tbjss wbo have given tbeir time, support and inlluer.ee to the work of this oragnlzation to say that we appiecinte and are tnnnkfiil for their efforts in tbis direction. And I rie aira personally to give thanks to my as sociates in office and the work of this so ciety for their forbearance to my short comings, and tor the assistance, so en couragingly Destowed during our associa tion in this work, and io say that I trust and believe hat success will accompany them in their righteous undertaking In future. Secretary Stewart presented the follow ing report of the opsrationi of the organ ization for the past year. "Some one has said,' The best evidence of success is to succeed.' We have tried to reach that, end. and it remains a ques tion for you to decide, when we have pointed out to you the manner it lias been tried and the ends t trained,whether there hns been enough accomplished to warrant any claim to success. "Since the Associated Charities first organized thero has been no time to stop and take account of stock, as the mer chant says, nor to make any estimate of the gains and losses, but the force in the office bave worked wit h the idea that this organization has come to stay, and all aims have been to get the foundation of the structure so firmly and securely laid that all the other parts wi ll become a sure, suostantiol and symmetrical whole. 'Our first annual report called special attention to tjt rule in force, that is: In vestigation before help. lis observance bas saved, in many eases. The <dd way of help and then investigation is imprac ticable. "The numbor of cases investigated tho first year was 820. Many of them did not require any more ai l, but soruu of the needier ones were helped as the .emergency seemed to require this year. In addition to the list this yexr 833 more cases hare been added, making the total 1653. A large percentage of this year's appli cants were found worthy and were either helped from the society's funds, oi in case tho applicant had a membership in a secret order or was a membtr of some church, help wns gotten from such order or church, but no worthy one was left un cared for who applied. It is true that lome were refused any help whatever, Highest of all in livening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report ABSOLUTELY PURE some because of unwortbinsss. such as tbs drinking ones wbo spend their money or liquor and will not work, and when buntrv come t« the society for food, and others'who come for help under the im pression that the treasury is ample, and they come lor their share. Oft.jn the statement is made that tne applicant ia more deserving than some who have re ceived or do get aid. All the transportation lines leading out of the oitv have very g»n«rouslv given liberal reductions on farce for those the society will oertify to as bsing nsedy and worthy. Often we are called npon to exercise tbis privilege when it would not bs riiiht to use it, and sometimes severa critioism follows tho refusal. There is a class of people wbo are poor no doubt, and under the delusion tbat a ohnnge of iccation will better th*ir con dition physically or financially, or both, apply for the society to vooco for there - to pay a part or nil ot their fare to somo point far away, a city often where they nave never been, nor have anyone to uid them when tbey reach their destination. Iv such cases the refusal is but just. In making investigations the central office is under übliaitions to members of this society and also to others, who have done much to aid reaching the fucts. The central office cannot with iie present limited force do the wore; without sucb help. The result of nn investigation showing fraud intended by the applicant, is free to sll and often is published at our request in tbe daiiv papers. Other applicants may depsnd on a discreet secrecy. Thus the charity workers, indi viduals or societies, can find our records a benefit to tbem in deciding wbo outfit to be helned and we always are only too glad to do them service in that line when asked to do so. Of ail callers each gets a respectful hear ing, and if worthy neither religion, poli tics nor race stands In the way of tneir getting relief as we may be able to crant it. 11 practicable it would be a delight to give the names and places, etc., of the people for whom we have pro:uied situa tions, temporary and permanent, of all ages and of both sexes, without any cost to cither en ploye »r employer. Special thanks are due to the daily press for the uniform kindness and generous treat ment the anciety has bad at all times. The police department has at all times given us services readily and effectively and tbe county sheriff's otlice frequently gave helpful servics. In noting tbe literal donation by tbe public acuools of the city on Thanksgiv ing occasion last year, it is pleasant to recall the event on account of the many tons of supplies of clothing, fuel, food, booxs, toys, etc., whicn were received nnd given to the needy. We have made a written request to tbe city board cf education requesting to have it duplicat ed ai the approaching Thanksgiving day. Many other valuable things have been received and given out, without any cost, sucb as potatoes, frnit, bsans, eggs, but ter, vegetables, etc. Some new and at.k ages ol secund hand clothing nave been p.aced witb those in need. Two sewing machines were received and given to widows who are using them to earn a living for their little oues. We have two invalid cbairs and three pairs of crutches which ars leaned nnd re loaned-to pooi suffeiers, temporarily dur ing sickness only.

THAT DURRANT "CONFESSION" The Evening Record Made Seme 111-Advlsed Chsrges Tbe Record nublisbed an interview Thursday witb Mrs. Mooney, in which tbe lady was quoted as saying tbat Miss Cunningham bad said that Durrant bad confessed the murder of Blanche Lamont to her. Mrs. Mooney waa aeen by a representa tive from The Herald regarding the alleged interview in the Record, and denied ever having made tbe state ments that paper alleged. Not only tbis, but sbe fnrther explained the story in the evening paper by saying to The Herald reporter tnat the Record rep resentative had allowed bis Imagination to run rampant. Tbis statement of the lady in tbe Rec ord was made by the morning journals yesteiday. Bnt tbe Record added mis representation to its inaccuracy by saying that tbs morning papers bad falsified their interviews with Mrs. Mooney. Tbis statement was without foundation. Mrs. Mooney was reported correctly, and never during her conversation did sbe say that the story in ths Hecord was cor rect. The writer of the Record must have been attending the performance of Prince Ananias, and absorbed a trifle of that gentleman's characteristics. A LOST SAILING VESSEL A Postmaster Seeks Information Concerning One C. H. Barlow, the postmastt-r at Mon tis, Cal., writes to the Herald as follows: "Will yon please inform me whether or not there was any kind of a sailing ves sel wrecked or lost between tbe San Pedro and Kedondo benches between the years 1848 and 1853, and if so were there any valuables lust and what kind and how much? Very truly yours." Tbe letter ia published, thinking tbat perhaps in this way tbe desired informa tion may be given lo the writer.

As only fragments of Dr. Black ington's report have so fsr been in print, the document is herewith publisbed in full: "As requested at the last meeting of your board, I hereby make my report on tbe Cudaby Packing company seiaughter bouse and yard. The magnitude of the plant should not oiind one to tbe unsani tary conditions wbicb pravail within and about the building. "In tbe first place, it is by no means certain that a plant of this discription can be maintained In a thickly settled portion of Los Angeles without jeopardiz ing tbe health, comfort and happiness of tbose living in the immediate neighbor hood. Here we bave almost perpetual summer and conditions are very different from tbose wbicb prevail in tbe cities of the north and east, where tbe ther mometer is below zero a very considera ble part of tbe year. "Being located on the railroad, with a switcn extending along tbe entire front, it is possible tv unload aud slaughter atock wbicb may have been injured or taken sick on ths journey, without being observed. I bave myself here seen nogs with broken legs, swollen and inflamed from a day or two of suffering, killed and packed to be sold as human food before calling attention to this fact. All bugs slaughtered here bave a cbain thrown around one of their hind legs and suspended in mid-air, and left to atrugtle and squeal for twenty minutes prior to killing, and making such a noise thai any person can scarcely believe sucb cruelty necessary, especially since no other slaughter house here follows this method. "Sheep slaughtered bave been found in many cases to be affected witb tubercu losis and lungs in fla road from exposure and the hardships of tbeir recent journey, which, as your honorable body well knows, renders Ibe meit unfit for human foud. "Cattlo killed here a»e frequently small and inferior in quality and not always healthy, but the refrigerator process giv en tbe meat makes it possible to place it on tbe market in successful competition witb the meat of otber dealers,which, al though of superior quality, lacks tne firmness and color wbicl) quick refrigera tion only can give. More than a month ago the fertilizer department was con demned, tbe inspector remarking at the time that he felt the entire plant should be condemned. But he only condemned the fertilizer works and tol I tbe com pany to wash the blood and filth off the walls, clean up generally and remove the ferti lizer works. "I am informed that this order hss In .vi disregarded and that the fertilizer is still being made in tbe same place ann manner as before. This has pmven so DON'T Forget that we are having an extensive removal sale, that we have made some unusual reductions throughout our store.
