All the citizens of Artesia seemed to be present in the board of supervisors' chamber yesterday. For the time being election returns were given the go-by while a local fight over a picayune proposition was fought to a finish. Some time a go certain resident tax payers of Artesia petitioned the board to open and extend a road and a still larger number of citizens petitioned that the board do nothing of the kind. Yes terday was the day for hearing and there was a full attendance. It transpired that the road In question is not far from the river bed and In rainy weather it, with the adjacent lands, be comes overflowed with water. Natur ally enough this state of things is ob jectionable to neighboring ranchers and SO they made the proposition to the su pervisors that if the board would order the opening of the road that they, at their owii expense, would dig a trench, or road If it pleases anyone to call It such, and divert the water from its pres ent place of lodgment. To this other ranchers in the neighbor hood objected as it was simply a case of robbing Peter to pay Paul! or, in other words, when the proposed trench was completed the water would be diverted, it is true, but only to another point where, it would work perhaps greater damage than at present. Inasmuch as the petitioners conceded that there are no obstructions on the road and there being therefore no need for the board to open what is already open, they w ere referred for any relief from ovei flowing water in winter to the supervisor of their district. Upon the representations of the county auditor that the work in the redemption department of his office has increased very materially during the past year, as indicated by the amount received for redemptions from sales having Increas ed from $2222.19 for the fiscal year end ing June 80,1896, to $21,458.8. for the year ending June 30, 1596, the board decided to allow one permanent clerk at a salary of $75. A license Inspector was also granted to the tax collector's office, at a monthly salary of $"5.

Coroner Campbell was called to the little village of Moneta, near Gardena, yesterday morning to hold an inquest upon the body of Clarence Bassett. a rancher who died at 6 oclock Tuesday evening from Injuries received a couple of hours earlier by having a bucket fall on his head from a height of twenty feet, fracturing his skull. Bassett had but recently rented a small ranch and was digging a well on it. A man named Fritz was assisting him in the labor. Fritz was on top,work ing the windlass, Basett being down in the hole, 35 feet deep. He fastened a bucket of slush and gravel to the rope ar.d gave the signal for hoisting. He had neglected to securely hook the buck et, and when about half way up it broke lose and fell, hitting him on top of the head. When taken out he was unconscious, and it was found that his skull was crushed. Two hours later he died. Preparations were made to inter the body before it became known that an inquest would be necessary, which ac counts for the news of the accident being delayed. Bassett was a native of New York state, 35 years old, and leaves a widow. A verdict of accidental death was rendered, in accordance with the established facts.

JL.OS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER % 189«. AS TO THOSE IRREGULARITIES Another Session Devoted to In vestigation NO NEW FACIS BROUGHT OUT Fire Commission .-rs Meet and Talk Over Discrepancies But One Case in Which Chief Moore Ad mits That He Was Indiscreet in His Action. Fire Chief Walter S. Moore spent an unpleasant hour or two before the fire commissioners yesterday afternoon. The board met at 2:30 oclock to continue the investigation of the alleged discrep ancies between the pay roll of the de partment and the house reports as sub mitted by the foremen. Mayor Rader presided, and all the commissioners were ln their seats. AH the facts have been printed in The Herald heretofore, and nothing new was brought out. Chief Moore insisted that there was nothing wrong in his action, except that he might have been negligent ln not assigning the men to duty. The Seelig case was the only one in which he would admit that he had ever been Indiscreet. In this case tne man had done two months' fire duty, during May and June, when he had re signed from the department. His resig nation was duly entered on the books, but the name was carried on the pay roll for four months thereafter, war rants were drawn for the monthly amount of $25, and these w an ants were sold to a broker, to whom they were assigned. This was the most flagrant case. Commissioner Grlder, when the matter first came out, stopped the payment of the warrants for the last month's pay of Seelig, Tighe and Montgomery, and these are siiil in the auditor's ofiice, never having been called for. The com missioners, as a board, sustained Mr. Grider's action, after which further ac tion was deferred. After the examination of Chief Moore had been concluded, Assistant Chief Ed Smith asked to be allowed to make a statement, which request was granted. Mr. Smith said that a day or two ago Mayor Rader, with one of the commis sioners, had come Into his office and, in the presence of Electrician Francis, had asked him if he knew that the men named were being carried on the pay roll. He had told his honor that he knew that they were. He had consid ered the mayor's action as a reilection on him, and for tills reason he wished to make his statement. He did not think that he had been appointed as sistant chief for the purpose of carrying tales about his superior officer, and he had not done so. Of course,if he was em ployed for this purpose he presumed that he would have to do so. but he did not think that this was part of his duties. He had always been loyal to Chief Moore iince he had been in the department, and would continue to remain so, but he was always ready to answer any questions that the commissioners might w lsh to ask him. It Is probable that final action by the board will be taken at the meeting Wed nesday. At the session yesterday Com missioners Vetter, Grider and Botts were at times quite severe in their criti cisms of the chief's methods in keeping the accounts of the department, which are, to say the least, very crude, and it is very easy for just such Irregularities to occur as those under Investigation. Chief Moore freely admitted that some of the criticisms were well founded, but excused himself on the ground that he had not been furnished with the proper help. As a matter of fact, the growth of the department has been so gradual that many things have been neglected, and ln many Instances the methods of the old days when there were only two or three engines in use are still in vogue. It is conceded that the present commis sion is the most business-like of any that has ever administered the affairs of the department, and, under the leadership of Mr. Vetter, many reforms have been instituted. What further recommenda tions will be made remains to be seen At any rate. It is more than probable that a report will be submitted that will ciear up everything to date. Mayor Ra der and Commissioner Kuhrts at yes terday's meeting seemed to favor the chief. ' WEATHER AND CROPS. Southern California Conditions Promise a Prosperous Year. Following is the United States de partment of agriculture climate and crop bulletin of the weather bureau for Southern California for the week end ing Nov. 2, 1596: Special reports from correspondents of the climate and crop bulletins ot Southern California in reference to the rain which fell the first of the week shows that it was unusually heavy for the month of October In all sections, and while the precipitation was excessive for the month, yet in a number of places the soil was packed so hard from the long dry season that the tain was not sufficient to wet the ground deep enough for plowing. Generally the rain was heavy enough to penetrate the soil to a depth sufficient to wet the ground to a depth sufficient to start plows going and make possible the commencement of farm work besides starting grass to grow, which at the close of the week was beginning to show green blades ebove the ground. The rains stopped all Irrigation and generally put the soil In good condition for plowing and cul tivating. A noticeable feature connect ed with the rain was the unusual sight at this season of the year of the dry water courses and arroyos carrying large volumes of water, which was laden with ashes from the burned mountain districts. VENTURA COUNTY. Bardsdale—Rain fell on the 26th to the deth of one and one-fourth inches, much of it falling suddenly. Orchards were benefited, but not enough fell to start forage or wet the ground deep enough for plowing. The weather is now cool, clear and windy. West Saticoy—The rainfall was .97 of an inch, and was heavier than usual for the time of the year, but was hardly sufficient to begin general farm weork, because of the lack of seasonable rains, which caused the ground to be harder than usual. BOS ANGELES COUNTY. Los Angeles city—The rain which be gan on the evening of the 26th contin ued until the early morning of the 27th during which time over an Inch of water fell. Showers fell during the day of the 27th, making the precipitation for the storm 1.29 inches. This was the third heaviest rainfall for the month of Octo ber ever recorded at the observer's of fice. The greatest amount heretofore having fallen was 1.42 Inches in 1883 and 6.£)6 inches in IRB9. The highest tem perature during the week was 77 de grees, and the lowest 47 degrees. Lancastei —The storm of the fore part of the week was of much benefit to An telope valley, and will start genera, .farm work. The precipitation was abovt one and a quarter inches at Lancastei and was much more above the foothills. Vegetation will start and there is a suf ficient moisture in the soil to sustain it for two months. La Canada. —The rain of the early part of the week penetrated the soil abut fourteen inches, benefiting trees and vines greatly, and was sufficient to start farm work. Highest temperature 67 degrees; lowest 43 degrees. The rain fall was 2.54 inches. Verdugo.—The rainfall measured about one and a half Inches. This was sufficient to enable farmers to plow or chards and other cultivated level ground, but did not wet down hard ground or hillsides sufficiently for plow ing. It was the heaviest rainfall for the first of the season that has occurred for many years. It was unusual also In that it started a large volume of wa ter running ln the dry arroyos and wa ter courses, probably due to the clearing off of the mountains by fire. Pasadena. —The recent storm gave us 2.12 inches precipitation, which thor oughly soaked the soil, breaking the long, dry spell. It was unusually heavy for so early in the season, but did no damage as all deciduous fruit is under shelter. Oranges are turning yellow fast; the prospects for planting an im mense grain crop are the best. Duarte, —The rainfall on the 26th and the 27th stopped all Irrigation and put tiie ground in good condition for work ing.and plows and cultivators have been kept busy. The rainfall was the heav iest for this season of the year Snce a record has been kept at this station. The rainfall amounted to 2.45 Inches. The hlgest temperature was 78 degrees and the lowest 46 degrees. Downey.—The first rain of the season commenced Monday night. It was a regular downpour, lasting through the night, and amounted to 1.07 inches. Pomona—The rainfall of October 26th and 27th amounted to 2.42 inches, and for the season 2.73 Inches. North of town, on the table lands at the base of the mountains three or four miles distant, from three to five Inches fell, which came down ln streams so as to make our streets rivers and all depressions lakes. Immediately after this fall the sky was clear with warm sunshine, while high ln the mountains snow fell to depths ranging from whitening the ground to ten Inches. Very little damage was done and immense good. SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY. Chino.—The first real rain of the sea son commenced to fall about midnight of Monday and continued steadily the rest of the night and at Intervals all day Tuesday. Although a heavy shower fell on Tuesday evening, no damage was done in this vicinity. The precipitation at the experiment station was 1.35 inches, and at the sugar factory 11? Inches. The earth is bountifully soaked and the rain has done great good. It will make possible the commencement of farm work, and greatly improve the prospects for good crop conditions. Crafton—The rain of Tuesday was quite sufficient to start fall plowing, and planting. It was heavier than usual for the late October rains or the first rains of the season. The rainfall was 1.25 inches. Highest temperature SO degrees, lowest 40 degrees. RIVERSIDE COUNTY. Corona—The storm was an unusual one for October, and with the present warmth will start vegetation generally. Very many farmers are plowing and some are seeding. The rainfall \, as 1.40 inches. ORANGE COUNTY. Santa Ana—On the 26th a steady rain began at 3 a. m., which continued till S a. m., when the rah: clouds disappeared till 11 a. m., and then dark clouds again appeared with light thunder and heavy rain till 11:30. The precipitation was 1.50 inches in the central and western portions of the county and 2.50 inches In the eastern portion. There will be no further necessity for Irrigation this fall.

The rain improved the roads greatly. Walnuts are being ship ped rapidly, the crop in this vicinity be ing the largest ever grown. Fullerton—The rain was sufficient to start plowing; we have never known mesa land to plow better than It does now. The storm was considered extra ■heavy for so early In the season. Grass is already showing above ground. There was no damage, but the rain gave wal nut growers extra work washing nuts. The rainfall was 1.6 "inches. Capistrano—The rainfall of the late .storm amounted to 1.84 Inches, and was a blessing for farmers. Plows are going everywhere for barley, wheat and oats. Grass is sprouting everywhere and the hills are looking green. Highest tem perature 70 degrees; lowest 56 degrees. SAN DIEGO COUNTY. San Diego City—The rain of the 27th began in the early morning and contin ued at Intervals till the evening. At 7:10 a.m. the rain fell at the rate of two inchs an hour. There were many breaks of sunshine during the showers, which characterized the stomp. No damage was done, as warnings of the approach ing storm were sent out from the weath er office. This storm was unusual for this season of the year at this station, the rain comparing with this month in 1883 and 1889, when over two Inches fell. Seeding has commenced ln many parts of the county. Escondido—The first rain of the sea son came on the 23d of October and on the 27th a heavy rain fell. Valley Center—On October 27th 2.98 In ches of rain fell followed on the 28th by perfectly clear, warm and sunshiny weather and still air. The weather was cool the night of the 28th of October, but no frost formed. The ground is In excel lent condition for plowing and will im prove the opportunity. La Costa —The rainfall last Tuesday was fully thie"-fourths of an Inch and it wet down the soil sufficiently for plow ing, The rain was unusually heavy for the season. There were no high winds hut the weather was quite cool and ex tremely fine and pleasant. Hauling is much improved. Hauling has com menced and will be general by next week. THIEF AND FIREBUG. Young Judson Green Arraigned on a Burglary Charge. On a charge of burglarizing the sta tionery store of T. C. Foster ln the Bry son block Jerome Judson Green, the precocious youngster who has told the police detectives so many fairy tales about being abducted but has been found to be a skillful thief instead of an abused child, was arraigned In the po lice court yesterday afternoon. Since Saturday night last Detective Goodman has been looking up young Green's past actions and has found out enough to fully convince him that the lad is about as near totally depraved and vicious as he well can be. He was employed as office boy by Attorney Clarence A. Miller in the Bryson block, and during the time he worked there nearly all the offices in the building were robbed of money, books, jewelry and valuables of all descriptions. Young Green Is a preposessing lad and wa3 not suspected In connection with the thefts, but since his arrest numerous thefts have been directly traced to him. At first Judson denied everything, but has made several confessions acknowl edging his thefts and burglaries,and not only this, but that he is a firebug as well. Several weeks ago three fires were slart sd In one day in the Bryson hlock and sow it appears that Green set them all. svby he does not know, "just for fun," ■xeept to satisfy the morbid craving fo* .witement and the unlawful demanded by his degenerate nature. He apparently stole simply for the sake of stealing as he made no effort to sell any of his plunder, but gave It away to different parties, making some plausible excuse to account for its pos session. The lad appeared In court clad In a natty suit of corduroy and seemed to take his arrest as a matter of course which did not worry him much. Exami nation was set for today at 3:30 p.m. and Green will undoubtedly be held for trial in the superior cout. He will probably be sent to Whittler for his mi nority. EXHIBIT OF HOME PRODUCTS. Applications for Space for the Great Display Pouring In. Application for space at Hazard's pavilion during the Merchants and Manufacturers' exhibit of Southern Cal ifornia products, to be held from Janu ary 16th to February 6th, are being re ceived rapidly from ail over the state. The ftbject of the exhibit is to encourage the use of home products, however, and the association Is making an effort to have have all the space available for exhibition purposes taken by Southern California producers. The fair will be one of the largest ever attempted in this city, and It is hoped that merchants and manufacturers and producers in general will not fail to understand the benefits to be derived from such an ex hibit, and will make a united effort to make a creditable display. DE LAVEAUX PLEADS GUILTY Of Assaulting Banker Breed, Whom He Mistook for Otis In the police court yesterday after noon Gustave de Laveaux, the French man who assaulted L. N. Breed Wednes day morning with a horsewhip, mis taking him for Colonel H. G. Otis, plead ed guilty to a charge of battery. In mit igation of his offense he pleaded that Otis had published in his paper certain scurrilous and libelous articles against him and that on calling at the district attorney's office he was informed that his only redress was by a civil suit for damages. This was not to his liking and he thought that personal chastisement was the only recourse left to him. Tes timony of the complaining witness was heard and the court set today for pass ing sentence. AT THE THEATERS LOS ANGELES THEATER. —Delia Fox who makes her first appearance in this city as a comic opera star brought with her one of the most elaborate pro ductions and strongest companies of the season. Her management, very wisely, did not make too great allowance for her personal popularity, but sur rounded her with the best people ob tainable and clothed the opera with elaborate scenery and costumes, and the opera is supplied with a bright ar.d interesting plot by the French original, from which it was adopted. It abounds In good lines and clever situations, much of the credit of which is due to Clay M. Greene, who has greatly im proved upon the original opera, the mu sic of which has been revised and re written by William Furst. The story of "The Little Trooper" deals with the jealousy of Clalrette, the newly-wedded bride of a captain of hus sars, whoso embarrassment at the un expected meeting with an old sweet heart on the eve of his departure for the front arouses her suspicions. The cap tain who is very near sighted.loses his head so completely that he is unable to muster courage to tell Mathilda, tlie former sweetheart, of his marriage,and succeeds in arousing her suspicions as well. Both follow him to camp, and the wife, arriving last, finds another wo man has been introduced as the cap tain's wife by a hluiderlng brother of ficer. Determined to get at the bottom of the mystery, she disguises herself as a newly enlisted lieutenant, who has not reported for duty, and before he finally turns up she succeeds in becom ing very popular among the officers and of giving her husband and his meddle some friend, Gibard, many a bad quar ter of an hour. The explanation brought about by the arrival of the tar dy lieutenant, brings about a complete reconciliation. • • • ORPHEUM — The election excite ment Is not interfering with the run of big houses at this popular vaudeville theater.
