INSPECT THEM
Fire Department Engines
to Be Tested
AND ENGINEERS EXAMINED
BOARD OF EXAMINING ENGIN
EERS ON THEIR TRAIL
Chief Moore Don't Like the Idea.
Neither Does the Mayor and
Fire Commission
The weekly meeting of the board of
fire commissioners yesterday morning
was comparatively tame until two let
ters from the board of examining en
gineers and the city boiler inspector sent
the mayor and Chief Moore on the wa.
path with blood in their eyes.
In themselves the letters were ostens
ibly mere, formal inquiries as to the ful
fillment of the provisions of a city or
dinance, but behind them evidently lay
a Senegambian, for their reading im
mediately precipitated trouble. The first
was as follows:
Office Board of Examining Engineers:
"To the Board of Fire Commissioners—
Gentlemen: Kindly arrange matters so the
engineers in your department will be able
to get here and be examined for license,
and instruct them accordingly, as any per
son operating a steam boiler without a
license is guilty of a misdemeanor. Re
spectfully,
Board of Examining Engineers:
"C. J. DAHL."
The second was from C. J. Dahl, In
dividually, as boiler inspector, as fol
lows:
"To the Board of Fire Commissioners-
Gentlemen: Will you kindly instruct those
in your department having charge of boil
ers to have them ready for Inspection at
the earliest possible date and have them
inform me of same. Respectfully,
"C. J. DAHL, Boiler Inspector."
The reading of the foregoing evoked
some comment on the part of the board
and the chief himself, who stated tha:
this sort of thing had been a bone of,
contention for some years in other cities,
and it was time, he thought, that such
nonsense was stopped here. "My de
partment is given power," said Chief
Moore, "to appoint men to attend to the
engines and. their mechanism, and our
judgment is supposed to be good.enough
without subjecting the board to the
criticisms and possible censure of any
outside officials. I don't think that It
necessary for this board to bend the knee
to any boiler inspector or board of en
gineers on this subject; if we aren't
competent to handle our own engineers
efficiently, then certainly the boiler in
spector and his associate aren't; and
there is no need to have them make any
sort of an examination simply because
they think they can run this depart
ment."
"Certainly not," said the mayor, em
phatically, and the board having coin
cid.ed with the chief's views the letters
were merely ordered filed.
The weekly report of City Electrician
Francis was read and ordered filed, as
was also the petitions of John W. Clark
for appointment as callman.
The petition of the Los Angeles Brew
ing company for permission to erect and
operate boilers and machinery, burning
crude oil, on East Main between Moul
ton and Walnut streets, was referred to
the chief for investigation, with power
to act.
On recommerdation. of Chief Moore
permission was granted, to the principal
of the State Normal school to erect a
brick furnace for consumption of rub
bish, on the school grounds at Fifth and
Grand, avenue.
The petition of Elder and others for
permission to bore for oil on. those lots
enclosed by Cottage, Curtis, Hawley and
Mann streets, was granted on the rec
ommendation of Chief Moore, who
stated that no objection had- been
raised.
The petition of M. S. Kren.tlum for
permission to erect arid operate a dye
house at 816 East Washington street
was protested by A. H. Quatman, who
owns twenty-one out of the twenty
seven lots ln the block and who claims
that such an enterprise would be the
means of materially decreasing the
value of property for residence purposes
in the vicinity. The matter was de
ferred for one week In order that a plat
of the neighborhood could, be prepare-d,
thereby giving the board an opportunity
to understand the nature of the petition
and protest.
The weekly report of the chief con
taining an account of the alarms sent
In. since October 13th was approved acid
ordered filed.
The meeting adjourned after some
discussion amongst the board as to the
localities to be decided on for the erec
tion of new engine houses, etc., and the
chief was instructed to make an Inves
tigation, as to the most desirable and
needed locations, together with an es
timate of the cost of purchasing the
sites, buildings and apparatus, and pre
sent the same to the board at Its next
meeting, when the latter will make an
inspection on the chief's report and Im
mediate steps will betaken, as to the
issuance of bonds for the same.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 21, 1897
MUST SUBMIT
Fire Engines and Engineers
to Stand Examination
NO EXCEPTION TO BE MADE
EXAMINING ENGINEERS WILL
PUSH THE MATTER
The Ordinances on the Subject—Views
of Boiler Inspector, Mayor and
Chairman Rademacher
The difference of opinion between the
board of examining engineers, Boiler in
spector C. J. Dahl and fhe board of fire
commlss'ioners, as reported in another
column, promises to blossom out into a
blood-letting feud of an appalling char
acter.
When Inspector Dahl was> seen last
evening at 5 oclock he stated that the
board and himself hadi merely conform
ed with ordinance No. 4602, new series,
adopted by the city council October 4th,
1897, the section on which they base their
demands being numbered. 8, and reading
as follows:
"All owners or users of any boilers ur
steam generating apparatus, except
those otherwise provided for, under
pressure, shall have the same inspected
and tested as herein provided, before
being used, and once every three months
thereafter, except mangles and steam
kettles, which shall be inspected annual
ly; and for every neglect or refusal to
have such inspectionand test, such own
er or user shall be deemed guilty of a
misdemeanor, and upon conviction
thereof shall be fined in a sum not less
than $10 nor more than $200 or be im
prisoned in the city jail for a term not
exceeding 100 days, or may suffer both
such fine and imprisonment."
The exception ref erred, to is as follows:
"Section 15—All engineers, engines and
boilers of locomotives used on railroads
are exempt from the provisions of this
ordinance."
Section 10, which was also quoted by
the inspector, runs:
"Any person who shall run or operate
any steam boiler, steam generating ap
paratus, mangle or steam kettle In the
city of Los Angeles without having ob
tained a license as herein provided, shall
be d.eemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and
upon conviction thereof shall be fined in
a sum not exceeding $300, or be Impris
oned in the city jail for a term not ex
ceeding six months, or may suffer bofh
such fine and. imprisonment."
INSPECTOR DAHL TALKS
"There is nothing that can be much
plainer than this," said Mr. Dahl; "we
are distinctly told that 'all owners or
users of any boiler or boilers,' shall have
their apparatus examined, and neither
the board nor the mayor have any more
right than a private citizen to object to
the enforcement of an ordinance which
has been adopted by the city council and
is in full force ant effect. At this stage
of the proceedings I cannot say much
about the steps the board will take, as
I have received no official communica-
tion as to the disposal of our letters. As
a matter of fact, I notified Chief Moore
some days ago that we were going to
have the inspection made, but he ignored
my letter, an! I took this means of
bringing the thing in a forcible manner
before the higher authorities. I shall
only say that I shall insist on the ordi
nance being obeyed, and shall use my
official position to have the law com
plied with. The inspection of the boil
ers would not cost the city one cent, as
any fees charged would merely go into
the treasury again, which would be non
sense and. an unnecessary piece of red
tape. The board of engineers will prob
ably discuss the matter at their meet
ing tonight, and I am satisfied, that they
will all be In favor of enforcing the ordi
nance."
THE MAYOR'S IDEAS
Mayor Snyder was next seen and he
was emphatic In his statements that the
ordinance didn't refer to the Are depart
ment and if it did, it didn't cut any
figure.
"I want it understood, right here," said
Mr. Snyder, "that no board of engineers
or boiler Inspectors shall ever ccmpei
our engineers to take out licenses or
make inspections of our boilers. If the
board of Are commissioners hasn't got
enough gumption to appoint men who
know their business to run the engines
ol the department there might be some
sort ot a kick coming, but I don't think
that anyone can question the efficiency
ot o.ur mem, who are being drafted* in.
under the civil service regulations, and
who are trained to handle a Are engine
from the time they enter the depart
ment. As for that boiler inspector, I
doubt If he knows anything about a fire
engine, and anyway we know enough
to run things without getting tangled
up on a small engine boiler proposition.
Besides, I don't see why that board
should come In. and want to make a
dollar apiece out of our engineers, who
have years of practical experience to
back up their knowledge of engineer
ing. I simply say that the board of
engineers and the boiler Inspector will
never put their fingers in the fire depart
ment."
City Attorney Dunn, refused to give
any opinion, as to the merits of either
parly, stating that it was a difference
between two official boards and it would
not be his place to say anything, one
way or another, until he- was approached
in an official manner.
THE ENGINEERS MEET
The board of engineers, composed of
Messrs. Frank Rademacher, G. W. Jud
klns and. F. J. Fischer, held their reg
ular meeting last night at 7:30 in the
city hall, at which the action of the Are
commissioners was commented on with
some degree of surprise. When asked
as to what action they would take,
Chairman Rademacher stated that
there was the ordinance clearly embrac
ing the Are department, which came
und.er the description of "owners of
boilers," and that only one course was
open for them to follow. On being asked
what would be done should they refuse
to comply, he said that the ordinance
designated the penalty for breach of the
same, and he did not brow why the
board of Are commissioners and the
mayor should be allowed to violate an
ordinance any more than any other
company or Individual ln the same po
sltlon. "If they refuse to comply with
our request, we shall have warrants for
their arrest sworn out and. they shall
be treated the same as any other law
breaker. We have heard no objections
from any of the fire department etngin
eers to be examined. If, as Mayor Sny
cier and. Chief Moore claim, their engin
eers are competent men, which I be
lieve, surely thtey should have no ob
jection to having them examined. If,
on the other hand, the men are rjot com
petent, which, however, I an satisfied
Is not th? case, they shouidnot be placed
in jucha responsible position. Of course,
in the execution of our duties we are
brought In close contact with Boiler In
spector Dahl, amid we cannot but coin
cide with his views in the matter as far
as regards the inspection of boilers. An
engine at a fire is, nine times out of ten,
as great an object of curiosity as the
fire itself. A defective boiler In charge
of an incompetent engineer, in. the cen
ter of a large crowd, Is certainly not a
state of affairs to be encouraged, and
we can. see no objection to making such a
contingency as remote as possible by
refusing to have either engine or engin
eer officially tested or examined. How
ever, we have taken a decided stand
which we mean to retain, and if tht or
dinance can. be enforced, enforced it
shall be."
A MURDEROUS ASSAULT
ARIZONA MAN MEETS WITH MIS-
FORTUNE IN A SALOON
Refused to Pay for a Drink for a Stran
ger and Narrowly Misses Having
His Jugular Severed
Officer Ben Robbie* arrested George
Ruede ln the United States saloon on
Main street yesterday afternoon on a
warrant charging him with assault to
commit murder. The complaint was
9worr» to by W. Winder, who arrived a
day or two ago from Arizona, where he
was foreman in a lumber camp, and is
now making his headquarters at the
United States hotel. He applied at the
receiving hospital yesterday morning to
ha ye an ugly gash in his neck Aye inches
long sewed up. The wound, wasa deep
one and If It had extended a half Inch
farther the Jugular vein would have
been severed.
Winder stated that he had. been as
saulted in the Our House saloon on
North Main street. Hisassailant, whom
he had only met an hour before, had used
a knife. He ran across the fellow ln a
Main street resort and they had several
drinks together. His new acquaintance
proposed! that they walk over to the Our
House and shake dice for the drinks..
Arrived there the man stepped away to
talk with some acquaintances, leaving
Winder alone, who ordered a drink and
paid for it. A minute later the new ac
quaintance came back and ordered a
drink. He insisted, upon Windier paying
for it, too, which the latter refused to
do. Only a few words passed between
them when the stranger drew a knife
from his pocket and began slashing
away at Winder, who succeeded, in get
ting out of the way only after he had
come near to having hisjugular severed.
While he did not know his assaiian fs
name, Winder was sure that he couldi
identify him by sight. When he was
able to leave the hospital, Officer Rob
biru accompanied him. They looked
through several resorts and in the
United States saloon. George Ruede was
pointed out as the man. He was ar
rested, and when searched at the police
station an ugly-looking clasp knife was
found in his pocket. He did not dony
having committed the assault. Both
men had. been under the influence of
liquor.
BURGLARS AT WORK
Have Been Operating in the South
eastern Part of the City
Several burglaries have recently been
perpetrated in the southeastern portion
of the city, although In no case have the
amounts secured been large. A thief
gained entrance to J. J. Reeves' resi
dence on East Twenty-eighth street Sat
urday night through a window. The
noise attracted Mr. Reeves' attention,
and he came down stairs to Investigate.
He ln turn must have been heard by the
burglar, who made good his escape by
the same means that he had entered.
On Friday night a burglar gained en
trance to the residence of Mr. McGinty
on East Twenty-seventh street, but was
discovered and routed before he had se
cured any plunder. The recent thieving
is ascribed to a gang of toughs follow
ing the races.
Fire From a Gas Explosion
An explosion of gas in one of the Rex
Oil company's wells at the corner of
Adobe and Bernard streets started a
small Are at 7 o'clock last evening. An
alarm was turned in from box 254. The
department responded and had little
trouble in extinguishing the blaze, which
occasioned only a nominal loss.
Terrible Deficiency of Wheat Abroad—Amer
ica to Supply the World
Late advices from Washington, based on
reports of government experts, report that
the shortage in the world's wheat crop will
reach the starvation figure of 112,000,000
bushels. America is relied upon to supply
the deficiency out of her grand product of
460,000,000. This deficiency can, with some
aid of the rye and corn orop, be made up,
but who could supply the sick and debili
tated a deficiency of Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters? There is happily always a sup
ply of that promptly helpful medicine ad
equate to the relief of the dyspeptic, the
constipated, the bilious and the rheumatic.
It will, without interruption, continue to
build up the weak, to protect the denizens
of malarial scourged localities from chills
and fever and kindred disorders, and to
counteract a tendency to torpidity of the
kidneys and bladder which, if disregarded,
is speedily subversive of their organic
health. Not only does it renew digestion,
but also appetite and sleep.
Lost His Diamond
W. B. Cllne, president of the Los An
geles Electric Railway company, lost a
valuable diamond stud at the races last
Saturday. The stone was very cleverly
picked from bis bosom. It was valued at
$250 The detectives have been unable
to get any trace of the thief.
Isn't It a beauty? It's out of sight!
Doesn't it run beautifully? By Jove—
nothing equal to It! Must have one,
sure! Those are'the remarks you hear
about the Chainless bicycle at Stephen
& Hlckok, 433 South Broadway—and
those you don't hear are just as flatter
in*.
AT THE THEATERS
LOS ANGELES—The Italian opera
company last night closed what Is hap
pily only the- first part of their Los An
geles engagement—for they will return
to us next week—with a veritable tri
umph. What a feast of superb and
thrilling music it was, the memory of
which will surely long remain with the
grand audience that filled the hous';
Our people have been lamentably slow
in realizing the rare opportunity that
this splendid organization of artls'e
provides, but nevertheless the laudable
enterprise of the management that ovc'
throe months ago commenced negotia
tions with Signor Del Conte for a sea
son of Italian opera has not been disap
pointed. The audience last night was a
brilliant one, and from the first bar of
the overture to "Cavalleria Rusticana"
to the Intensely dramatic finale of
"I'Pagliaeci" responded enthusiastical
ly to the magnificent merits of the two
productions.
Mascagni and Leoncavallo are both
young Italians, whose fame will be re
corded in the musical history of the last
decade of the nineteenth century. Each
has already produced a masterpiece that
will earn the tributes of posterity. Both
operas so abound with delicious melo
dies, superb orchestration and soul
stirring effects that at a single and short
writing It is an impossible task to at
tempt to do any sort of Justice to their
worth, and the same must apply to a
brief review of the masterly manner in
which they were given last night.
Mascagnl's musical gem has for sev
eral years maintained a generous popu
larity, chiefly through the tender beauty
of the intermezzo, which has been
played In every quarter of the globe
where two or three stringed instruments
are gathered together. That there was
such a wealth of melody throughout the
whole opera probably not one half of
last night's audience had previously ap
preciated. Th* music is such as> pulls at
the heart strings, because its creator has
conceived the anguish of souls. The
passionate yearning of a stricken heart
is the keynote of the work, and this is
the constantly recurring and dominating
motif In the opera. The music is in
spired throughout with, passion and
anguish, and yet the restraining Influ
ences of religious devotion are also in
troduced and are the inspiration of one
of the most beautiful chants ever writ
ten.
The work of the principals was almost
flawless. Montonari as Santuzza was In
splendid voice, and imbued her singing
with the utmost feeling. The sweet
tenor of Agostini, who Impersonated
Turiddu, once more charmed his hear
ers. The great contralto, Fanton, has
little to do as Lola, but her brief ap
pearance was extremely brilliant. Alfio
was sung by Francesconi, who sings in
finitely better than he acts. Calcagni
sang the part of Lucia very acceptably
It was a finely balanced cast and every
number sung would have- been greeted
with enthusiastic applause had th;
progress of the opera permitted. As it
was. the intermezzo, which waa a reve
lation, was vigorously redemanded, and
the drinking eong and chorus, "Viva el
Vino," had also to be repeated. The
overture, which reveals the melodies of
the opera and introduces a delightful
tenor solo, sung behind the scenes, de
serves every whit as much p6pr'"*ity
as tbe intermezzo. The passiona:, uuet
between the young soldier and his sicond
love is another of the gems with which
the opera abounds. For once the maestro,
Vallini, whose masterly direction has
been throughout a feature of the en
gagement, received a thoroughly de
served ovation.
The great tenor, Colienz, achieved an
other triumph in "I Pagliacci." The
grandeur of his voice had not before had
such an opportunity as In the role of
Canio. The house simply rose to him
after the great solo at the end of the first
act, In which is described the frantic
irony of his position, the comic role he
must portray covering a heurt torn
with anguish. It is a magnificent solo,
and was superbly sung.
Cleopatra Vicini'svoiceishardly equal
to the part of Nedda and to such com
pany as Collenz, but otherwise her
charming vivacity and sprightly grace
are admirably adapted to the role.
Cionl, as he always does, both played
and sung his part with success. His
Tonio was a very clever characteriza-
tlon, and not too obtrusive. Frances
coni again had a light part, but his sing
ing was delightful. These two bari
tones have as different voices and as
distinctive styles as have the tenors,
Collenz and Agostini, and, Indeed, the
sopranos, Mazzi and Montonarl. The
diverse advantages of all these artists
have afforded a liberal and enjoyable
study to the opera habitue.
There is a vast amount of vi
rile strength in Leoncavallo's com-
position, and the consummate art
with which he has combined the
outward comedy and the Inward tragedy
of the conception is, at the first hear
ing, the prevailing impression. As in
"Cavalleria Rusticana," this opera is
rich In lovely harmonies, and again the
orchestra and its rendition were ex
tremely delightful.
The good news that we are to have the
privilege of another week of opera has
already been hailed with delight by
music lovers, few of whom could have
kept away from last night's perform
ance. It Is sincerely hoped that the re
turn engagement may be worthily ap
preciated by the general public, and
since the operas selected' for next week
are pre-eminently of a popular charac
ter, the hope has good chances of fulfill

Mr. Gibbon, who made a graceful little
speech last night, announcing the re
