ASKS ECONOMY IN TAX COLLECTIONS Democratic Candidate Points Out Evils of Political Patron age System SALARY LIST EXTRAVAGANT Declares County's Money Wasted by Operating Offices as S. P. Dictates At the Good Government organiza tion meeting at Watts last night Wal ter J. Desmond, Democratic and Good Government candidate for county tax collector, made a powerful argument for more economical collection of the county taxes. He showed by official figures that the cost of collecting the county taxes is more than double the cost for collecting taxes in the city of Los Angeles. Mr Desmond made It evident in his epeech that he had given much study to the subject and that he ls thor oughly competent to administer the office of county tax collector. He said: "The Good Government organization is opposing the election of the present tax collector, W. O. Welch, because his office has long been recognized as a political bureau for the distribution of patronage under the direction of the Southern Pacific machine. This sys tem of operating the office is objec tionable from various points of view, and particularly because it has re sulted in great extravagance and a waste of the people's money. "As a matter of fact, to collect taxes In the county during the past fiscal year more money has been expended at more than double the rate required during the same time to collect taxes in the city of Los Angeles. This is not due to additional expense accru ing from postage and other incidentals, as a glance at the-salary list .of the two officials will show. "The published report of the county auditor shows that during the last fis cal year the collection of $1,000,000 in county taxes cost the taxpayers $13, --730.05 in salaries alone, as against $6829.58 expended in the city for the same purpose and for the same amount. At this rate one year's col lection of county taxes is costing in the payment of salaries $49,904.19 more than it would if the system employed ln collecting Los Angeles city taxes ■were in force. Or, in other words, if the same economical and businesslike system now prevailing in the city tax collector's office were adopted in the county tax collector's office it would mean a saving to the taxpayer in the salary list alone of about $200,000 dur ing the four-year term -of a county tax collector." Mr. Desmond pledged himself to the adoption of a system tending as far as possible to accomplish this result. - .... __— BRYAN'S DOUBLE PREDICTS DEMOCRATS WILL WIN OUT Candidate for State Printer Says Outlook Bright "I honestly believe every candidate on the Democratic ticket will be elect ed this year," said D.

'•'•'•,' Young Simmons, who lives with his mother at the Wall street address, de tected the odor of gas and decided to Investigate and remedy the defect. He lighted a match and was peering be neath a sink in the kitchen when the explosion occurred. He was hurled across the room by the force of the explosion which also shattered the glass in the windows. - Mrs. Simmons was In the front part of the apartment at the time. Despite the fact that two doors were closed between her and the kitchen she was Jarred considerably. She rushed to the rear room and administered .emergency treatment to her.son. ■ In the meantime an alarm was turned in and the fire department ap peared. The firemen found that the explosion' did not set fire to the place and notified the police of the condi tion of the injured lad. The latter was hurried to the receiving hospital. The boy treated the matter as a joke and despite the fact that he was se verely burned laughed while the sur geons were bandaging 4 his burns and told them he had learned a' lesson he would not soon forget.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 15, 1910. Municipal Affairs ELEVATOR ORDINANCE IS VETOED BY MAYOR Executive Claims Law Not Strict Enough to Insure Pub lic Safety Declaring the ordinance permitting the employment of unlicensed station ary engineers and elevator operators in times of public necessity is too broad, Mayor Alexander .yesterday attached a veto to the ordinance and returned it to the council. In his message he says: "I return herewith ordinance amend ing ordinance No. 19128 (New Series) by adding thereto section 3Sa, without my approval, for the following reasons: "Proposed section 38a reads as fol lows: Nothing in this ordinance con tained shall be deemed to prevent the owner, agent or person In charge and having control of any building wherein any steam boiler or any elevator is used from taking charge of or placing a competent unli censed person in charge of such boiler or such elevator, for a period not exceeding thirty days, during the time of public calamity, or at any other time for any reason aris ing out of Immediate necessity when the safety and convenience of the occupants of such building and oth ers are affected. - "This section leaves It entirely to the Judgment of the owner or agent as to when the safety or convenience requires an unlicensed engineer or elevator ope rator to be placed in charge, and does not even require an effort to secure one who has a license. Elevators and boilers in public buildings, where many people congregate, should be handled by experts, and this new section would seem to be almost nugatory of the whole engineer ordinance. I believe that some provision should be, made for emergencies, and I would respect fully suggest that your honorable body examine the provisions of the old ordi nance, which was repealed by ordinance 19128, and also examine the provisions of the ordinance upon that matter in some of our leading cities." NIPPONESE ENGINEER PLANS JAPANESE GARDEN IN PARK Offers to Donate Services Free if $100,000 Is Spent If the city will furnish the money, M. Haglwara, Japanese landscape en gineer, will be willing to donate his services free to construct a Japanese garden in one of the city parks. He has already arranged a plan for the work and has selected Eastlake park as best suited for the place. His plan calls for the outlay of about $100, --000 and he does not care to undertake the work unless at least that amount is spent. He is the engineer who laid out the Japanese garden in Golden Gate park, San Francisco, and declares that if his plan is followed in Los Angeles it will surpass the one at San Francisco and be the talk of the world. He was authorized by the park commission to draw up a plan for a Japanese gar den in one of the local parks and he is anxious to proceed with the work. All the Japanese engineer asks for his labors is the glory that will come, with another example of his art in California. But while his offer is most generous and the park commission would like to accept it, there is a finance commit tee that guards the city treasury and Japanese gardens do not affect it much. The park department has been allowed a certain amount In the budget and this amount only covers work neces sary to do. The finance committee might be induced to appropriate a por tion of the $100,000 wanted for the work as a beginning with the under stating that more would be provided in future budgets, but that would re quire several years to complete the proposed garden. COUNCIL WILL PASS ON GARBAGE LOADING SITE A new site has been found for the garbage loading station, and the public welfare committee of the city council will look at it this morning. If the site meets the approval of the commit tee it will recommend that lt be ap proved by the council. With the coun cil's approval stamped on the site, no court will be likely to grant an Injunc tion against the operation of the sta tion. . ,''■•';. Such has been the experience in other places where it has been found neces sary to collect large quantities of gar bage. When an injunction is asked, one of the first questions propounded by the court is if the city officials have approved it. OPEN BIDS FOR PILING The board of public works yesterday opened bids for 275 piles to be used in constructing the municipal wharf at Wilmington. The piles are to be creo soted and* will cost from $16 to $25 each. This wharf is the. one for which Wil mington voted bonds before consolida tion. The bonds have been sold and the money is on hand to pay the cost of the wharf construction.
