LOS ANGELES COUNTY AND NEAR-BY TOWNS CHARGED TO THE TRAMPS San Bernardino People Suffer Losses by Fire THE CITY IS IN DARKNESS Pending Settlement of Demands for In. crease of Pay An Asylum Investigator Who Was Not an Expert-Fourth Trial of the Button Murder Case San Bf.rna* Ditto, Dee. 16.—A fire at North San Bernardino last midnight utter ly destroyed the barn of Charles Wixom and its contents, including four valuable horses, their harness and a wagon, besides a winter's supply of baled hay. The only possible explanation of the blaze is that it was accidentally set on lire by tramps. The lire originated in the end of the barn where the horses stood, and near the manger was the only opining through which access to the barn could be hud. It is supposed that tramps had j lighted matches to look in through the ■ apertures, and the matches had dropped to j the hay in the manger below. The loss is from $1200 to $1500. Tho four horses would be \allied at from $150 to $200 each, which with the barn and other contents would count up to the amount named. So far as could be learned Wixom carried no insurance. The barn belonging to J. I. Scott, whose home is at Mound City, burned Saturday night at 12 oclock, and with it Mr. Scott's ' buggy horse, a quantity of hay and wood and other property stored iv the barn. The total damage Mr. Scott estimates at $ 100, with no insurance. As at the Wixom lire, no reason for the blaze is known, and, in the absence of a better one, Mr. Scott thinks tramps were sleeping in the bain and that they set it on tire, perhaps accidentally. OUT WKST THX UOHUi Manager t orlette's threat to turn oil the electric lights all over the city at midnight Saturday night was no bluff, as people who were on the streets between that hour and morning had reason to know. And Mr. Corlette seems to have made some sort of an agreement with the clerk of the weather in Wuicb the latter is joining forces to in crease the darkness as much as possible. About live minutes after 12 o'clock Sat urday night the lights at the various street comers in the city began to flicker and i grow dim, and finally went out entirely, i and if everybody stands (irmly, it promises Office : 58 East Colorado Street I COUNCIL MEMBERS HET To Listen to Protests Against Poor Work EVERYBODY TO BE INVITED To Attend the Forthcoming Tournament ol Roses Oeatli of a Well-Known Educator, Hrs.

DeHuff testified to having found twenty-one imperfections in his curb. Mr. Linney found his curb defective. Mr. Pinkham has 135 feet frontage. He found the work in bad shape generally. J. B. Hughes saitl that is the specifications had been lived up to the work would havo been as good as any in town. Mr. Sparks ■tated that he had examined the job. Ho thought that the imperfections had been exaggerated, and that the sidewalks would give good service. On motion action in tin; matter was post poned until tomorrow morning at!» oclock. when a special meeting w ill be held. At the regular meeting at - p.m., there was not much but regular routine business transacted. There was o full attendance of the board. A resolution was passed in viting Loa Angeles to attend the Tourna ment of Koses, as follows, the same invita tion being extended to South ladena: Whereas, On .Tannarv I of each year the citt erns of the city of I'usadnna hold a flower tea tival, whlun is known as the "Tournament of Roses," and which h iretofore has been a jam flay in which all in.: cities and towns, all the Inhabitants vi Loa Angeles county and all strangers within our gates have ever boon cor dially invited to participate; and, Whereas, Next Ken year's day is to be no exception to the rule, and the tournament parade is to be ou v larger M ale than ever be fore and calculated tv show to the world the wealth of (lowers In Southern California a: this, ihe midwinter season in most oi 0.,r country; therefore, be it Kesolved, Thai Pasadena, tbe '■Crown of the Valley," animated by that fraternal feeling that hiuds us all in one happy family and In recognition of our common interests,and on behalf of the Tournament association, hereby Invites the mayor and council and all vi the citizens oi La Ange ci city to participate ou ' this most joyous occasion and contribute by tiieir presc et towards its succsss, and Bcoure their share of enjoyment.

And last night was darker still. Tho thick weather, combined with the absence of lights on the streets, made it almost im possible to "navigate," a "d few people were on the streets, und fewer still at the churches. The new advertisement for bids extends until December 261b, so it w ill he impossi ble for any other arrangement to be made in the meantime, aud if the contract is then lot to another company, there will also be another period of darkness, until the new contractor gets lines Strung and poles up, ready for service. Everybody in any way connected with the situation as it now stands seems lirinly grounded. Mr. Corlette says he will not turn on the light, and a majority of the trustees say they will never consent to pay $7.23 p"r light per mouth, and there the matter stands. The members ol the grand jury asylum committee have decided that they are not experts on Insanity, and during the visit to the institution at Highlands last week one of the commit cc received a forcible dem onstration of the fact. After mailing a round of the wards and taking a general survey of what was to bo seen, the committeemen, the physicians i and attend tots were standing in a court or I corridor, when an inmate, well dressed and i Intelligent looking, approached and gained ! the ear oi a member of the committee* i The unfortunate resident of the asylum lat once began to unfold a tale of woe that i smote the sympathies of the grand jury* i man. Ile ton! of how the patients in the institution were mistreated, that many were detained w ho Should be released, and continued, until one of the attendants, catching the juryman's eye, motioned him away, al the same time telling him to pay no attention to the talk ol the inmate. "Indeed. I will pay some attention to it," saitl he. "This matter must be investi gated," and the conversation continued. It happened that Mr. G. A. Bono was along as expert, and seeing how matters were going he stepped to one side, and in quired what the ins .ne man's hallucina tion might be. Finding that he imagined himself the pope. Dr. Rene returned and stepping forward, waited tor a break in ihe conversation. When the opportunity came, addressing the inmate, he said i "Aud 1 inulers and they will not even allow you to say mass here." "No," thundered the crazy man, strik ing an attitude and raising his linger ho pointed toward ttie entrance and con tinued: "And the cardinals are there waiting for an audience now." Tableau!

HAPPENINGS AT SANTA ANA Report and Recommendations of tbe j Grand Jury Preparations to Entertain the Expected Excursionists by Showing them About the City—Notes About Town Santa Ana, Dec. 10.—The grand jury report tiled recently states that the jury has examined the books anil accounts of ! the county officials, of the justice of the i peace and constables, of the municipal of llcers of Santa Ana, Orange and Anaheim, ! the city and county jails, and bridges and : roads. Hie work was done by committees as- I sisted by an expert accountant. The hooks i and accounts of all officials referred to ; were found correct and well kept. Atten i tion of school trustees is called to the j absence of shade trees, poor ventilation ! and bad sanitary condition of outhouses. The attention of supervisors is called to "the loathsome and filthy condition of the j jail at Anaheim." The building of a new i jail is recommended, as is also the build- ; ' ing nf a jail at Capistrano, as demanded Iby citiiens of ilint place. I The report recommends a map of each i voting precinct as a part of the great regis- i 1 ter; condemns the practice of justices in [ , imposing lines only sufficient to cover ] costs of action, without regard to the of ! fense. I The indigent list numbers eighty, who received *747 v!, and includes re ceived from the sti»te for orphans antl half -1 orphans, being about $628 per month. Upon counting the money of the county I we are satisfied it is not kept "as a special i deposit, according to law." We find some reported violations of law, ; but none upon which to found indictment 1 except in the ease of J. W. Leondell, jus tice of the peace in Anaheim, antl we pre sent an accusation against him for mis conduct in office.
