Democratic Candidate Points Out
Evils of Political Patron
age System
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.

Lad Puts Flame to Pipe Carrying
llluminant. and Explosion
Breaks Windows
Child Laughs as Surgeons Bind
Up Burns Received in
Rush of Fire
A' boy, a lighted match and a leaky
gas pipe, was the combination which
resulted in an explosion which shat
tered several windows in an apartment
house at 660 Wall street last night and
injured Arthur Simmons, 12 years old,
who was treated at the receiving hos
pital for burns on his face, neck, arms
and hands. '•'•'•,'
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. Later the In
jured lad was taken to his home|

Municipal Affairs
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
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."
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
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.
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.
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.
Clothing merchants, most of them
doing business on Main street, have
petitioned the city council to pass an
ordinance compelling all clothing stores
to close either all day Sunday or at 1
o'clock Sunday afternoon.
