Oakland Inquisitors Call
Chiefs to Detail Work
ing of Departments
OAKLAND, Dec. 13.—Ten days in
office, District Attorney W. H. L. Hynes
found the grand jury inquisitive as to
every detail of his management during
that time today. The jury is beginning
an examination of every county office,
as directed by law, and Hynes volun
teered to be the first.
He started in. early, explaining the
workings of his force, the division of
labor and the amount of money required
for salaries and expenses. Hynes was
cross examined for several hours. He
was also asked for suggestions for
changes and improvements which he
had worked out.
Frank Donahue, county game warden,
was next, and the administration of his
office was gone over.
County Clerk Cook was the last wit
ness, and he will be called again next
Tuesday, when the inquiry is to be re
sumed. Cook will advise a slight in
crease in the number of deputies, but
refused to make public .he nature of
his report.
Other county officials waited, but
"were not called. Assessor Homer will
outline a scheme for the division of the
county into districts for assessments
and will ask to have permanent depu
ties created, who will work the year
round. Homer said he has found that
a large force of deputies working for
four months can not achieve the results
on equalization of assessments to be
had from a staff constantly employed.
RICHMOND, Dec. 13.—Charles Mads

ago announcing that he was an in
ventor .of a patent, tray used in hos
pitals, has departed, and several per

they have received no returns.
