The friends of Governor Budd who wel
comed him to Southern California on his
arrival Wednesday, were both surprised
and delighted to note the marked improve
ment in his health since his last visit.
His face was fuller and lighted with the
Hush of health. HU naturally rugged con
stitution, severely taxed by the ardors of a
trying campaign, had recovered its wonted
vigor and elasticity. Like a giant refreshed
with sleep, he has plunged into the whirl
of state affairs and has grappled with tho
Cyclopean task of reducing the enormous
volume of expenditures of public moneys,
a labor requiring exacting efforts, a study
of the multiplicity of details that requires
an extraordinary comprehension — tho
power to group a maze of bewildering fig
ures in masterly array and apply t j them
the best judgment and common sense to
check the wastage and minimise the neces
sary public outlay with consummate ap
plication and address.
Governor Budd's trip to the fair south
land this time is a purely business one:
later on ho will come to us for a month's
visit at ileata time to enjoy at leisure the
charms of the many attractive resorts of
this favored section.
Unconventional and direct. Governor
Budd is a typical American, faithfully ful
filling the pledges made by him during his
wonderful canvass. Ho believes in the
hunest administration of the state institu
tions on broad American lines, that tho
republic, in its sisterhood of states, miy
live by the virtue of honest government.
His Americanism crops out, too, at unex
pected intervals, as was the quiet sugges
tion made at a number of the institutions
visited by him that the American flag
should float over every state asylum.
In an interview which I give with the
chief executive, I have not intervaled the
text by reproducing the iuterroga'ories
propounded on matters of state policy and
economics, but rather have endeavored to
rive the governor's own words as they fell
from his lips.
"I have very little time on this hurried
risit to state what I have done or expect to
do. 1 have done the best 1 know how to
nrry out the pledges made by my party
anil by myself during the last election. It
k ill be remembered that the state canvass
In (California, so fur as state officer! were
t oucerned, was largely run upon a pledge
to put the affairs of the state upon a
strictly business basis, and to keep the tax
levy for the running expenses of the gov
ernment within 45 cents per $100 on the
assessed value of 189:1. It has been and
will be my endeavor, before the expiration
of my term, to see that the tax levy is far
below the 45 cent pledge of tho Democratic
platform.
"The first fiscal year of a governor's
term has largely to deal with deficiencies
and expenses and other expenditures
of government over whicli he and the legis
lature, acting with him, have little or no
control. The strike, the expenses for in
digents, the completion of public buildings
rendered it necessary that tho last legisla
ture provide by state taxation a much
larger sum for state purposes than would
have otherwise been necessary; and not
withstanding the veto of over a million
dollars of bills passed by it, the amount
raised for taxes during the )7ih year
amounted to over 66 cents on each SIOO of
assessed value. This will leave p:obably a
surplus in the treasury at the expiration of
the forty-seventh fiscal year, but the same
could not be avoided, as I vetoed bills far
in excess of the amount calculated by the
legislature.''
"The tax levy for the forty-eighth fiscal
year, however, will be but about I4H-10
cents on each $100 of property according
to the assessed valuation of 1893. There
will be a shrinkage in the amount of
money raised for the general fund of from I
$4,913,10(1 to $2,681,371. Tho school
fund and the interest and sinking fund >
remaining the same, as neither the legisla- I
ttire nor myself deemed it advisable to in
terfere with moneys raised for the public
schools of the state.
"I believe that the amount raised by the
tax levy for tho forty-ninth and fiftieth
fiscal years will be far less than the amount
raised for the forty-eighth fiscal year, and
that should the next legislature be pledged
by the various parties to pass laws looking
fIIKUCIOK WHITE OP AdNP.WS ASYLUM
to the reduction ot the taxes, that the same
will he under 40 cents nor $10n of the
assessed valuation of 1893 before the end
of my term; and should the proper license
lax be imposed upon corporations and
saloons it will be impossible to predict,
without considerable hunting, how light
ihe tax will be upon the producing classes
of California."
"Our taxes have been raised by a levy on
real and personal property, imposing upon
thrift the burdens of our government.
Other states have relieved this class as
much as possible and placed the burdens
on those businesses causing the establish
ment of state institutions and the increase
of state expenses. This method may not
be deemed popular, but it is the proper one
to establish."
The method by which the state is re
quired to maintain by a state tax the in*
sane and other like classes has led to great
abuses in our legislation. Had the coun
ties been required to directly bear a por
tion of the cost of maintenance of the in
mates of state institutions there would
have been more care in the sending of peo
ple to the same. Where a few years ago we
had but few state institutions we today have
live insane asylums without any need for
that number; we have other institutions,
providing for the support of a class that
should never have been admitted therein."
TOO MANY ASYLUMS
"In my inaugural, I called attention to
this abuse in regard to the insane asylums,
and gave two causes therefor. First, 'the
desire of members of the legislature from
particular sectionsjto secure the approval of
their constituents, by conferring upon them
certain supposed benefits and tho conse
quent iniquitous system of trading, to
which this gave rise: and second, the
presence, in the already existing asylums,
of inmates who tinder tho law wore not
entitled to admission and have no right to
be retained there.' I pointed out ray
authority for these statements, and stated
'had the law been properly complied with
in the past, three asylums only would have
been required—one south and two north of
Tchachepi—and these, with slight addi
tions to their capacity, would have been
more than ample to meet the demands of
the state for years to come.'
"More than a year as governor has
strengthened my warrant for this asser
tion. The increase in the number of in
sane for tho last few years is, I believe,
about 150 per year.
"It has been estimated that at least_ls
percent of those in the insane asylums to
day do not properly belong there. The
present capacity of our insane asylums,
with an expenditure of a few thousand dol
lars, is upwards of 700 patients, thus
showing iiow easily the insane, for years to
come, could have been maintained, under
three managements, by an expenditure of
far leas than our new insane asylums coat.
CONSOLIDATE THE PRISONS
1 believe today that, on business princi
ples, we ought not to maintain over three
insane asylums in California; and I fur
ther believe that the two state's prisons
should be consolidated under one manage
ment at Folsom, where there is ample
water power to put to labor for the benefit
of tho state, as required by our state
constitution, the convicts now maintained
at the public cost. It is my firm determi
nation, if I am sustained by the next legis
lature, to cause this consolidation and to re
quire the convicts to work for the benefit
of the state. And I would require the con
victs to labor on the public roads, under
proper conditions, for the benelit of the
public, and where they would least come
in contact with free labor. In my judg
ment, the establishment of two reform
schools was a mistake, and no reform
school should have been established south
of Tehachepi.
REFORM SCHOOLS
Whatever reform school was established
should have been whero there was large
water power and sullicient land on which
to work the inmates. Boys can never ho
reformed unless their muscles are given
constant occupation, and they are taught
useful trades or avocations. Mendocino
would have beon an ideal place for a re
form school, aloof from all bad influences,
and where tho facilities above spoken of
ex st in abundance. As to the needs and
reforms in othor institutions, I have tried
to indicate them in interviews heretofore,
and as to those contemplated and put in
practice at Glen Kllen. I would refer to tho
February bulletin issued by Dr. Osborne.
"The board of examiners have been care
fully considering many of these subjects
during their weekly session-;, and while
there may be some differences of opinion
as to the details of the work, each member
of the board has labored industriously in
the endeavor to place the institutions of
the state on a business basis.
THE OCCASION OK THI3 VISIT
M Our visit south is due to an "action of

the board of examiners taken some mon lis
since. It was the desire of the board that
the directors of the live insane asylums
should meet as one and formulate a uni
form system of bookkeeping, a new scale
of wages for employes in conformity with
what is paid for like services m private
business, an investigation into the number
of inmates who are not entitled to reten
tion under existing laws, a consideration of
what amendments are necessary for our
THE GOVERNOR FIQURINO
five insane asylums, each iiaving been es
tablished under a separate act, and a fut*
ther consideration of how the burden of
taxation for the maintenance of the in
mates could be lessened, and the relatives
of inmates compelled to bear the just bur
dens of their maintenance. When those
labors are completed they will be laid he
fore the code commissioner!', together with
GOVERNOR JA.nES H. BUDD
roports from tho other institutions of the
state, and I balieve will result in the enact
ment of laws touching the management
alonoof our state institutions that will save
much money to tho people.
"i )ne of the great purposes of this com
mittee of the trustees and examinora is to
devise a proper method of levying and reg
ulating state contracts. In this matter,
which is under the special direction of Sec
retary of State Brown, the hoard hopes to
make radical changes.
"Of course, what 1 have said in this hur
ried manner is hut a very small part of
what tho board of examiners are endeav
oring to accomplish. Tho whole matter
might be summed up in one expression:
We are endeavoring to put the state affairs
on the same basis that a private business
man or corporation would conduct his or
its business, and this means an investiga
tion, not only of the larger questions in
volved, but of the most minute details of
state expenditures. We have discovered,
however, that it was in these details that
large savings could be made. _______
THE NATIONAL CL'AT.I).
"You ask in regartl to the change in the
National Guard- The legislature decreased
the appropriation for tho National Guard
to such an extent that it required an entire
reorganization of the same. It also pro
vided lor a reorganization in a separate
act. When we camo to consider how the
National Guard, as reorganized, could be
maintained, we found that there would
have to be a detiolenoy, unless a further
reorganization was had, of some sixty odd
thousand dollars. To prevent this and put
the guard on a basis that would secure its
greatest efflcieooy, 1 convened a special
board oi location, and on its recommenda
tion convened the brigade boards of loca
tion, and reorganised the guard by a re
duction in the number of its companies,
by consolidations and mustelines out to
bring it within the appropriation by the
last legislature. In this reorganization
wo followed tho latest military methods
and adorned the battalion formation, as
was recommended by the secretary of war
for tho government of the I'nitod Stales
army. This was the proper formation,
and when the friction and discontent, al
ways incident to a change of any kind, has
ceased, the National guard of California
will not only be a less expensive arm of
tho public service, but one of the most
efficient in the union. In this reformation
we took into consideration not only the
, b it '.alien us a unit, but the geographical
condition of the state and the means of
concentrating troops, establisbing several
troops of cavalry where they were most
needed, and mustering out light batteries
which were of ho benefit to the state at all,
and special attention was paid to what is
known as the naval reserve. The general
government has turned over, since the re
organization, to the naval reserve the iron
clad monitor Comanche. The national
government has permanently detailed an
array officer for the instruction of the na
tional guard and the secretary of the navy
will detail a naval officer at any time we
may request for the naval reserve.
FRICTION
"*Tou ask whether or not those changes
have been made without much friction.
No; there has been friction all along the
line; but it only came from those who have
lost positions or failed to achieve them, so
far as I am able to learn, and I think it is
very well understood today by everyone
that the state officials are endeavoring to
discharge the duties irrespective of the pull
of practical politicians.
"Of course, many people during these
hard times, who have worked hard for the
success of particular candidates for office,
cannot understand why they and each of
them should not be provided with a com
fortable berth in the asylums and public
institutions of the state. They little realize
the great injury it would be to the inmates
of those institutions and to the state were
competent, reliable and educated officials
to be discharged for the purpose of making
place for one solely on the ground of his
political services. There are in the state,
and under state Institutions, hundreds of
political positions that without detriment
can lie given as a reward to competent
mon for loyal services, and such positions
it has always been my wish to confer upon
my party followers; hut any one under
standing the laws of the state will under
! stand that these vacancies do not occur
except from time to time during my four
' years' term, and a large proportion of them
fall within the lust two years of a governor's
administration.
PLEASED WITH SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.
"I am pleased to see tho wonderful
growth of this portion of the state, and at
tribute it, not only to tho energy of your
people, but to the competition in transpor-
tation. This competition we have not beon
blessed by in the north to any marked ex
tent, antl certainly to a very limited extent
in transcontinental transportation. 1 hope
to see the day when tho government of ttie
United States will own and koep in order
one or more transcontinental lines of
double railroad tracks. I do not mean
that the government shall operate cars on
the same, but tint any person or Corpora
tion may. under proper regulation and at a
proper charge, be able to use such roads
the samo as today they can use a river or
canal. And tho very men who howl loud
est against the government ownership of
railroads cannot urge a valid objection to
this plan, and will be found among the ad
vocates of tho government completing a
water transportation by way of the Nica
ragua canal or opening canals in various
parts of the country, or appropriating
large stuns of money for rivor and harbor
improvements.
A GOVERNMENT ROAD
There is no more reason why the govern
ment should not maintain a stoel road
from iiio east to tho wost than there is to
its maintenance of the postal service. In
my judgment the government railroad is a
military as well as a commercial necessity,
and too British government on the north
has recognized this fact in the construction j
of the Canadian Pacific, and any Inquirer j
will lind at each end of that lino large cars,
constructed especially for tho purpose of |
carrying heavy guns and munitions of war j
from tho Atlantic to the Pacific or between
Intermediate points, and will lind such
stores tit Montreal on the ono side and l -s- '
qiiimaiilt on tho other; rand that tho British j
government has even thought beyond this,
and that its commercial shins ore In a con
dition to be immediately turned into trans
ports and armored vessels, and nearly all
of them are controlled by a lieutenant of
the British navy. What Great Britain has
seen lit to do there is no reason why this
greater country should neglect.' l
ASSESSMENTS OV MOJiEVB IN BANKS
i ".So far as the assessment of moneys in
I banks is concerned. 1 am in favor of every
' dollar of property subject to taxation in
i the Btato of California being taxed, at the
' same time avoiding double laxatiait by tax
ing the money in one man's hands which
I may have been given in by another as a j
i solvent credit. If the banks have shipped j
I money out of the state to avoid taxation,
las has been alleged, it is an outrage upon
the people of the state, for these banks re
ceivo tbe protection of the law and should
be compelled to bear a norrtan of the bur
den of that protection, and any bank that
will ship money to New York or elsewhere
for the sole purpose of avoiding the pay
ment of its just proportion of the expenses
of running the state government ought by
law to be denied the privilege of carrying
on the business of banking. I don't know
how much truth there is in the rumor, but
I shall request the bank commissioners to
secure a statement from all banks of the
state under their jurisdiction as to the
money on hand and their financial condi
dition at lis ocloek on the first Monday of
March of this year. I resolved upon this
matter some time last month, and no in
jury can be done to tue banks or any one
else who are willing to pay their just
taxes."
THE RAILROAD MEETING
Unconventional Talk and the Reading of
Resolutions
At the Los Angeles theater last night
Mayor Carlson of San Diego spoke in a
very unconventional manner on tho sub
ject of railroads.
An audience of about 150 people turned
out to hear what be had to say on that
topic and remained to listen to the vocal
and instrumental music furnished at the
mayor's expense.
A large diagram to illustrate the advan
tages of a short line of railroad from Los
Angeles to Salt Lake City was placed upon
tbe stage.
After some very rambling and un
grammatical remarks by the mayor Colon
el Hotchkiss made an address.
Another gentleman from San Diego fol
lowed Colonel Hotchkiss; then Mayor
Carl«on read a very innocent sort of reso
lution which was unanimously adopted.
He then read another series of resolutions,
consisting of fourteen sections, tbe first
twelve of which contained some profitable
and patriotic suggestions, and the thir
teenth developed the purpose of tho meet
ing, a proposition to register the opinion of
the people of Los Angeles as opposed to
the government's foreclosing tho mort
gages on tne Southern Pacific railroad.
The question of adoption was at once
put without submitting it to discussion,
after which Mr. S. E. Fulton protested
vigorously i/gainst such peculiar action.
He was opp/tsod to such a snap vote and to
the plan of advertising it as the sentiment
of the people of I -oh Angeles. After this
protest the mayor again spoke on the
merits of the question, stating that he had
gone to lJmaha for the same cause.
The motion was again put and many op
posing votes wero cast.
THE WESTLAKE SUICIDE
Coroner's inquest to Be Held Today.
What Was tbe Motive?
Identity Has Been Fully Established, But the
Motives for the Act Are Not
Yet Cleared Up
While the identity of the mysterious
suicide at Westlake park on Tuesday
night has been fully established, the mo
tives whicli prompted the wretched woman
to drown herself in the dark waters of the
lake during the raging storm, have not yet
been cleared up. As sta ed in yesterday's
Hebalu, the dead woman has relatives in
Oregon and Washington, one a brother, at
a small town named Welborn, and they
have been notified of the affair by tele
graph. No response has as yet been re
ceived, as the little village is ten miles
from telegraphic communication, and it
will probably be late today before an an
swer can be expected.
The sister-in-law of the suicide was also
notified. A lady yesterday saw the body
and identified it as a party whom she met
some time sime coining here from San
Francisco on the steamer. She gave her
name as Nellie Emerson and stated that
she was coming to this city to look for
work. She was engaged to be married to
an Oregon gentleman uud they were to
wed within a year. On arrival at Los
Angeles the acquaintances parted, and
when next seen the poor girl lay on a slab
in the morgue.
It has also been ascertained that the
name of the fireman who has been paving
some attentions to Miss Judy is Fred
Parks, and that he is employed by the
Santa Fe road. Parks, it is understood,
has in his possession a letter which was
written by tho girl to him on Tuesday, just
belore going to her death. This will be
made public at the coronet's inquest today
and may throw some light on tho matter.
Wliilo monetary difficulties may have
had something to do with her act, she hav
ing but 10 cents left in her purse when
found, it is probable that a love affair will
be found to be the solution of the mystery.
Genuine Incas
In ihe'interior of Peru are to bs found
today many full-blooded specimens of the
ancient native races. These people,always
gentle, though solemn and taciturn, avoid
ing traffic with the whites have not forgot
ten nor forgiven the subjugation of their
ancestors. To this day the women wear a
garment in memory of the martyred Ata
hualpa—a long black apron with a white
border. In Peru the climate is so dry that tho
dead escape the ordinary process of putre
faction. The preservation of bodies is as
sisted by ocrtain salts in tho soil. A story
is lold of a traveler who was scandalized
by seeing in a cemetery tho body of a de
ceased priest, ly ing out in the clear light of
the sun. He sought tho curate of tho par
ish for the purpose of reporting this irrev
erent exposure. But the curate said: "My
dear Bir, you do not understand. That is
the body of my friend which I have put out
there to dry, so that I may send him to his
family in Guayaquil, May ho rest in
peace!'' Thus it comes about that tho an
cient people of Peru are dug up nowadays
in as perfect a condition of preservation
as the corpses of old Egyptians artillcially
mummified.
Runawuy Milk Wagon
Shortly after 8 ocloek yesterday morning
a team of horses attached to a milk wagon

Bunker hill, at the intersection of Second

| but tho team safely threaded its way on

THE KILLING OF HENDEL
Late and Reliable Information
Regarding the Victim
THE WOMAN IN THE CASE
Was an Old Acquaintance of the Es
caped Jail Inmate
Questionable Relations Almost Fully Esteb
llshed—Barker's Position Certainly
Not an Honorable One
In the correspondence from Pasadena,
published in another part of this issue,
will be found a full account of the killing
of William Hendel, who only a day or two
ago escaped from the county jail, by one
J. A. Barker. Additional information re
garding tbe victim of Barker's aim has
been found in thiscity and is here given:
William Hendel had known Mrs. Barker
for some years, and to his too intimate re
lations with her he probably owes his
death. From a party who knows the tan
gled relations of the different actors in the
tragedy the following was obtained:
Hendel was an old ilame of the lady's
and knew her in her eastern home. At one
time it was understood he was engaged to
be married to her, bur came west and the
engagement thus was broken. For over
twelve years Hendel had not seen or heard
of his lady love, when one day he unex
pectedly met her.
He was workiug for a doctor and was
directed to go to the depot with the car
riage and meet some exnected guests. On
the arrival of the train Barker and his wife
alighted. The recognition between the
long separated lovers was mutual and
greetings were exchanged. Mrs. Barker
introduceil Hendel to her husband and the
former invited them to ride in his buggy
toward their destination. On the home
ward way the actions of Mrs. Barker and
Hendel became offensive to the husband
and he finally ordered his wife to leave the
buggy, which she did. He rode on a way
with Hendei, but llnally rejoined his wife.
The acquaintance between the two lovers
was renewed with the result that their re
lations soon became common talk.
One Saturday evening Hendel received a
note from Mrs. Barker, stating that her
husband would bo away and for Hendel to
come that night. He went, taking with
bun a jug of wine to keep up their spirits.
Along after midnight Barker unexpectedly
returned and his wife heard him at the
door. Hendel hurriedly made bis escape,
but something in the lady's actions put
Barker on his guard and he watched her
carefully.
After satisfying himself that criminal re
lations were sustained between his wife
and Hendel, he made preparations for a
divorce. To this end he charged his wife
with infidelity and had an affidavit drawn,
to which she affixed her name, and in
which she made full confession of her rela
tions with Hendel. The proceedings were
later abandoned and Barker condoned tbe
offense and continued to live with her as
her husband.
Then came the affray for which Hendel
served a six months' term in the county
jail. He and Barker met and threats were
exchanged. Hendel pulled a gun, md for
this was convicted of threats to shoot and
kill, and on August 19,18115, was booked
at the county jail for a six months' sen
tence. He was released only a few days
ago, and was immediately tried before
Justice Rossiter in Pasadena on a charge
oj petty larceny for selling some
furniture that was in a house that he had
charge of. While on trial he claimed that
Barker had come to him and demanded
money. He had but a few dollars, and told
the latter so. Barker then proposed that
he sell the furniture and give him the pro
ceeds. At iirst he refused, but upon Bar
ker further threatening to shoot him, he
acquiesced and disposed of the articles for
$20. He got this amount in two install
ments, one of $12 and one of $8, both of
whicli amounts he turned over to Barker.
Ho also claimed that the latter was endeav
oring by means of threats against his life
to secure some $70 which was due him for
services from a man for whom he had
worked. Hendel was a man of somewhat
feeble mind, and never carried a
weapon of any sort. He had spent a term
in an insane asylum, and never seemed
exactly right. When returned to the county
jail for a sixty-day term for the larceny of
the furniture he was given his old position
as a trusty, advantage of which was taken
at the first opportunity to make hisescape.
He returned to his former haunts, oniy to
meet his death as above stated.
J. A. Barker is a man some 10 years of
age, tall, thin and gray-haired. He was
seen in his cell at the county jail last night,
but absolutely refused to make any state
ment whatever. To all inquiries he sim
ply replied that ho would say nothing. He
iiad been advised by his attorneys oot to
talk. When asked who his attorney was
he'refused to state and turned away, ask
ing only to be left alone.
A Drinking Uog
A dog in Louisville loaf a in a saloon on
Newspaper row and is a drunkard. The
dog is only a common cur, but ho likes his
toddy and must have it every day. Not a
day passes that tiie dog does not get
drunk, and after getting full he stag
gers behind the stove and sleeps
it off. The dog is 12 years old and
has made his homo around the sa
loon in question for tho last nine years.
He never attempts to bite anyone, anil all
who frequent the saloon think a great deal
of the dog. < Iften men will visit ttie saloon
just for the purpose of teeing the dog and
getting him drunk. His liquor is given him
in a saucer and he likes it like many a man.
Oh stains Prom Bosks
Oil stains are removed from the pages of
valuable books without injuring the print
by gently warming the stained parts with
a hot iron placed on a blotting paper. After
taking nut as much of the oil by this pro
cess as Is possible, dip a brush in rectiiied
spirits of turpentine and draw it gently
over the sides or the page, which must be
