CIVIL SERVICE RULES
UPHELD BY SPALDING
Secretary of Local Commission
Declares Exactions Neces
sary to Preserve Spirit
W. A. spakllngr, secretary of the civil
service commission, tiiinks he *ees an
inclination on the part of some of the
friends of civil service to Rive, it n llap
now and then. BuCh, at least, was the
opinion he expressed In an address be*
fore the City dub yesterday afternoon
on "Civil Bervlce in the Hands of Its
Friends."
Some members of the commissions
which handle the city's business be
lieve they are lmndicapped by the ex
actions of civil service, but Mr. Spuld
iiiK pointed out yesterday that these
exactions were necessary to preserve
the spirit of civil service. He criti
cised the refusal of the finance com
mittee to appropriate some money to
provide for the expense of a delegate
to the civil service convention and the
supply committee for its failure to
grant the civil service niore help, and
with some sarcasm said these two
committees were supposedly friends of
civil service and this was one thing
that was happening to civil service
in the hands of its friends.
Councilman .1. J. Andrews, a mem
ber of both the finance and supply
committees, who was present at the
club luncheon, risked the privilege of
the floor after the speaker had con
cluded and explained the finance com
mittee had refused funds for the con
vention because there were no funds
to Rive and that the supply committee
was still considering the matter of
more help for the civil service depart
ment, with other salary questions.
Mr. SpaldinK spoke of various re
form measures that had been tried in
IjOS Anpeles during- the last thirty
years, and showed how civil servi c
was a natural outgrowth of this de
sire for reform. He told what it had
accomplished during the seven years it
has been in force in l.os Angeles, and
as one example of the pood results
pointed out the efficiency of the aque
duct department.

'DOWN AND OUT' CLUB
GROWING, SAYS NORTON
Democratic Chairman Has Turn
with New Organization of
the 'Has Beens'
Chairman Alhort M. Norton of the
Democratic county central commutes
vouchsafes the following:
"Patsy Clark's famous 'original jei
terson club' was the scene yesterday
noon of a novel assemblage ol em
while Democrats and Others, who met
at luncheon in the old polittcal remle/
vous and formed the Los Angeles
•Down-and-Out club.
"This is said to be the first real
Down-and-Out club over formed by
political 'has-beens' In Los Angeles,
If not in the state. The club's roster,
ms read yesterday, contains the names
of many so-called political dereMcts
and others who have descended from
grace, it includes, for instance, tho
nt mes of of many old-lino leaders ot
the push,' of the Los Angeles eitj
and county Democracy-men who were
read from their party, frown out 01
summarily ousted because ot the, af
filiations with the machine gang, 01
because of other suspicious clrcum
'^Many <>f them represent the short
halr Democracy, as opposed to the
•long-hair' Democracy, and others are
given an honorary membership lor
feats they failed to perform. As an
example, Dr. Frederick Cook, famous
polar pretendi r. who tried to steal the
■oose from commander Robert Peary,
was elected to the dub. The name
„f Nathan Cole also was submitted,
but'«ill not be passed on until next
week, when it Is believed he will bo
entitled to membership.
"The 'Down-and-Out club formed
rday is expected almost to double
Iti membership when the party sots
through 'weeding out' its present un
desirable or Incompatible members.
"A. C. Harper, deposed mayor of
T.oh Angeles, was elected president of
the club. Tony Schwamm (abdicated
monarch of the Kighth ward) became
Ita secretary. Then, too, there was
Tom Vacher. Tom was once the ene
my of unlicensed canines, known as
the ■ x-officio dog-catcher of the Angel
city. He was elected treasurer. In
this capacity he will have little to
ire;, sine but the memory of other
days
"Besides these officers the club
( lected a regularly qualified board of
directors. On this board were ap
pointed such deserving men as A. E.
Weiss, R. P. Goings, Sam Sdienek,
Jim Craig, Hub Lewis and other be
loved brethren of the past.
■Tom Savage and Eddie Morris, it
is said, were refused membership.
Balllnger'i application, with thai of
several other members of the present
national administration, will be con
gidered later. No reformers will be
allowed to attend the meeting* or to
Hat,- tbe mysteries of the inner
circle. The club will meet every Sat
urday at noon and hold weekly lunch
eons. .Members arc forbidden to dis
cuss politics i xcept in the past tense.
Hi.l.' 'was' and 'were' arc said to be
the passwords, and all reference to
the Good Government administration
is forbidden On penalty or being
kicked out of the club."
We ask for information: Does this
"back from Elba" business .have a
deep and sinister meaning? It Is irue
that on the top layer It fairly sparkles
with compliment; but beneath, we fear,
there lurks the grim suggestion that
after "back from Elba" —only a little
while after—came Waterloo. Is it a
conspiracy, or merely a coincidence?
