How Oakland's Taxpayers Are
tiie city nun n a MUDDLE.
Treasurer Gilpin Ground Between Two
They Are Holding the Hypothecated Print
ing Bills ofthe Times Pub
lishing Company.
Oakland's city finances are In a bad mud
In order to secure the payment of even a
small bill against the city it is now neces
sary to bring a 6uit and recover judgment,
which will be paid in the course of time,
though how much time nobody knows.
Poor persons with just and legal claim?,
who depend upon the city for money to
"keep the ball rolling," must wait and wait,
even though they know there is money
enough in Treasurer Z. T. Gilpin's hands to
pay them.
The funds are all tied up. ana promise to
remain tied for a good while.
Whose fault is it?
Whom have the taxpayers to blame?
Who is responsible?
It is easy enough to guess, and every citi
zen of Oakland ought to be able by this time
to tell the city's boodle gang.
Foremost in the ring is the ever-smiling
Frank J. Moffitt and the boyi?h-faced W.
E. Dargie, and then come trailing along
divers Councilmen and city officials.
It Is a queer crowd when it is all together.
City Ball, Oakland.
It has not much stamina save in one direc
tion—Us wonderful ability to reach out for
and grasp boodle.
It has by its successful operations in dif
ferent kinds of schemes made the city treas
ury look very sick.
lfoffitt, Dargie and the boodle JCouncil
men now have an unpaid claim against the
city for nearly Si
The claim stands in the name of the
nd Times Publishing Company," but
that deceives nob dy.
When it is paid it will ba divided among
Moflitt, Dargse and the boodle members of
the Council.
The Call showed this plainly enough In
a previous article, which the people of Oak
land real with mu^h interest.
Wi.at most distrusted the Oaklanders is
not that M. flitt and Dargie should have put
npsuch a job on the taxpayers, but that the
City Council should have shown itself so
clearly in partnership with them.
Full proof of this la not wanting.
On June 20 last the Council passed an or
dinance appropriating $9726 to pay the bill
of the Timps for doing city printing, al
thrugh the City Attorney advised that the
action was illegal and that no such appro
priation could be made. Auditor Snow re
fused to tsau« warrants for the payment of
the bill nni the ordinance was again pre
sented to the Council and again passed. It
is i ow ia the Mayor's bands.
And now come9 the queer part of the
whole proceeding.
Ttw ai^propriation by the Council to pay
the outrageous printing bill stands In the
w*y of the payment of other bills that art
just aud legal.
If City Treasurer Gilpin had a mind to do
so he could go ahead and ray the legal
claims now registered or coming in, but
there would th»n not be any money left In
the treasury to settle the claim of the

way it should be done, and it would settle
the whole matter.

bufortunately for Mr. Gllpln and unfor
tunately for the city his hands are not
loose, nor are they likely to be while he re

The trouble all lies In the fact that the

bas been scattered around town among the
bankers, who have accepted it just as if

unless Mayor Chapman and the courts

thejr outrageous appropriation.
Now a good maoy of the bankers who
have taken the bills Hypothecated to them
by the Moffitt- Dargie combination are
friends of Gilpin, and more than that they
are his boiidsmen.
These are V.l>. Moody and F. K. Shat
tnck of the First National Bank, C. E
Palmer atid Edson Adams off the Union
Bank, and a number of others who go to
mak« up the best lht of bondsmen that any
City 1 reasurer of Oakland ever had.

the appropriation by the City Council for

tutes a prior claim. It takes precedence, he
say«, of any of the others. That's the rec
ognized rule— the way they do it In Oakland
when the people's backs nre turned.
Mr. GilDin stated emphatically to a Call
reporter yesterday that he would pay no
warrant now registered in his office with
out an order of court. In case the printing
bil^ were audited he declared be would
treat them in the same way.
There Is i no danger though that they will
be audited, and Mr. Gilpio knows It, for

Xh« Olympic Field Day and Boxing
Considerable Interest is manifested In
amateur athletic circles over the 100-yard
race which will take place at the Olympic
Club's field day between Henderson, the
champion sprinter of the coast, and Lean,
the all-round athlete. The latter ha9 been
practicing very faithfully for some weeks
past, and his fiL'iuls are of the opinion that
there is a surprise in store for Henderson.
It is sail that Lean had a private trial a
few days ago witti a 10 2-6 man, whom he
defeated after conceding him a handicap of
five yards. At this rate of traveling It is no
wonder that Henderson cherishes a whole-
MOM (dea of Lean's ability as a short-dis
tance runner.
The salt water company that ha9 the con
tract of laying pipes from the ocean to the
new buildinp, will b<>gin work next week.
When the in t> is completed the members of
the club ill have an opportunity of inform*
ins their niends how a sall-tva'er plunge

On the evening of the 11th inst.— boxing
night— a nominating committee, who will
make nominations for the regular ticket,
will be appointed. As there will beau op
position ticket in the field this year, it is
thought that the election of directors will
create quite a stir In Olympic circles.
Tho SSO-yard race whicli will take place
on the2o;h inst. at the Olympic grounds,
betweeu the athletes of the State militia
uudor arms, will certainly be a feature well
worthy of seeing. Several entries have
already been received by the secretary of
the Olympic Club and many more are ex
pected. At the suggestion of Lieutenant
Crocker of the Naval Ueserve, the Olympic
Club will offer a handsome trophy for a race
at some near-future tield day between mem
bers of the home n.i.vy, who will have to
carry sidearms, ritles and haversacks. It is
the intention of the club to encourage
athletics ainoug the local warriors on land
and water by an offer of a beautiful cup to
the winner of a race of BSO yards between

Some of the members of the Olympic are
anxiously lookiug forward to the presenta
tion of a beautiful 'Vururlse" cup, which
William Greer Harrison wili be made the
recipieut of in the near future.
it is said that Rubinstein, the champion
amateur bamtam- weight of the coast, is
seriously contemplating joining the profes
sional ranks solely for the purpose of meet
ing George. Dixon, the champion bantnin
weight of the world. The Sacramento lad
baa got a very exalted opinion of himself
as a fighter, which, he thinks, only such a
man as Dixon cau reduce.
Greggains, the amateur boxer, who was to
have met an Olympic lad at the coming
tournament, discovered a varicose vein on
the joint of his b\i thumb a few days ago,
which he considers will be sufficient to ex
cuse, him from putting in an appearance on
boxing night.
Crowded Conrr.ee* tloun Yasterday— Tlira*
SerTlce* To-Morrovr.
Rev. B. Fay Mills continued his revival
services in the Simpson Memorial M. E.
Church y-sterday. The church wns again
crowded to overflowing at both afternoon
and evening services.
In the evening Mr. Mills selected his text
from Luke xxvi Ai, "And bein.' in agony
he prayed more earnestly." There was a
modern att-mpt, he said, to show Christ as
a cool, passionless nun, but it was not a
success. The apostle James says, "The
fervent, effectual prayer of the righteous
man availeth much." We were either not a
righteous people or our prayers were not
fervent or effectual, or they would be
granted. If we were really la earnest about
our Irieod*' salvation wu must snow our
ooncern for them. He did not care
to attempt to save a soul unless
the churches were aroused to manifest
a proper solicitude for the souls of
men. There wai no unconverted wau liv
ing but would be melted by the deep con
cern for the religious welfare of his Chris
tian friends. There was no argument
against a tear. He illustrated this
by many affecting Instances. Peo
ple often came to him saying that
they were heart-broken and anxious about
the amils of their friends. There was bo
need for anxiety or worry; only get the
Holy Ghost in them and tiiey would soon
bring souls to G(d. When Johu Koox
cried aloud, "O God, give m« Scotland or I
die," God gave him Scotland. People went
on marrying and giving in marriage, spend*
ing their money on amusements and danc
ing their time away without a tear being
shed or a heartache over friends lost to
God. He prayed that they all might be
touched with something like divine concern
for lost souls. The ines«ag« came to them
all with tremendous import and tbey all
ought to be concerned about their own soul*.
There was au after service to which
almost the entire congregation remained.
Mr. Mills announced that there would be
only one meetiug to-day— at 9 o'clock in the
morning. To-morrow he would hold three
meetings: One ai 10 o'clock a. m. for the
youn? people in the same church; auother
at 3 o'clock p. m for young people in the
First Presbyterian Church, and another fo,r
men only in the evening at the Plymouth
Congregational Church.

which the miseinz girl had been concealed
in the bouse. When he served the warrant
on MoSlie she suid she could not b» arrested

"Did you know the character of the heuse

"Yes, I did."
"Why did you not arrest Mollie Wood

"Because— because I did not go there to

Further questions In this direction were
ruled out by Judge Joachunsen.
The defense consisted of a general attack

The Biggest Assembly of Soldiers

Formal Opening of Camp Columbus at Rev

to Santa Cruz Tc-Day.
It was at the first and celebrated division
encampment at Santa Cruz, in August, 1885.
that "the old camp-ground" received its
name of "Tripe Rill," on account of the
de«o«rate effort of a penny-wise contract
cateter to feed his regi
ment on tripe three
times a day for eight
days. Camp Columbus,
for which the troops of
the State are assem

was assembled the largest body of troops
at one time and place anywhere on the
coast since the cloie of the war. The
*uard was then composed of 40 companies,
of which 39 were at camp, the Eagle Corps
of Lo6 Angeles having beeu the exception.

The !>C(>fiVr may scoff and the critic criti
cize, yet the fact remains that of all things
In uone perhaps does the guard of this
Stare show better evidence of its progress
than in tbe knowledge of the dutits at
camp, even though as ragardi many details
that go to make u;> military canps those of
this State may not b* comparable to the bet
ter of Eastern organizations. Hut that Is
not the fault of the
oflicers and men, but
rather of the system.
The general knowledge
•nd procre£B of th»
guard In this particular
dates practically from
the encampment of 1885,
before *hich uo organi
tations considered prac
tical instruction in the
field a paitof their duty,
nave notably tr:e First
Infantry, an outside of
this cMy the regiment In
and about Sacramento.
Camp Columbus is the
hiteentli annual encamp
ment of the First Infantry, which Intro
duced them in this State. The en-auip
utenls before 188", and not a few of the
regimentals since, have been little belter
than military picnics. This element in
them is gradually disappearing. It cannot
be eliminated at one time.
The guard-man of this State receives no
per diem from the State while at caiop. If
he attends it is becausn he d..eg sn volun
tarily, 'lhere Is no law to compel him.
Nine out of 10 who do attend do so at loss of
the wages or \ ay for tlie eight days of their
absence. So also with the officers, who are
neoessarllv under a ruucli greater expense.
AH tins being bo, it cannot be demandrd
of officer and man that he shall niar^r. In
heavy order to a camp and there, spend a
week with nil the hardships and many of
the inconveniences of the soldier's life Id
the field. As suggested after Camp Stone
man by the then adjutant-genera!. To se
cure voluntary attendance and cheerful per
formance of duties which cannot be rigidly
enforced an encnnipment in this service
tbust to some considerable extent be made
D'pular, and sober work and pleasure be
judiciously sandwir-hed together." Every
Urge tamp since 1885, however, has been
made more of a camp of instruction and
discipline than the previous one. Camp
Columbus will be the fourth for the Second
Biigadeasa brigade. Every indication Is
that this camp will be the best that has ever
been held in the State, and that, compara
tively speaking, will closer fill the bill of a
military camp.
The practical results to be derived from
ltcaunot be overestimated at this period,
with the confmion over the recent adoption
of the new drill regu!ntl<,ns and the more
recent changes in the manual of guard duty.
Nor will the exhibition of the knowledge in
these be limited to the regulars. They
have a* much to learn about some of these
things as the amateurs. Camp Columbus
will have been pitched to-night on a field
that is f'Uul.iar to thou-
saii'la. It is one of the
best in the Slate when
put in a proper shape,
which It never bas been.
The field will b« the
same as the one of Camp
Stoneman, with the ad
dition to the recent bri
gade camp grounds of
the large, field en the
south, which hud been
fenced off. In this addi
tional field will be '
camped the regulars and
the first provisional bri
gade. The camp will
fare as beretufoie, and
the troops will be iu the following order on
the division linn: First United Slates
Infmitrv; cavalry troop, light battery;
First Brigade, composed of the First
Artillery, Eighth and Tenth Infantry; Sec
ond Brigade — Second, First, Third aud
Fifth regiments; Third Brigade— In
The Second Brigade camp will be rela
tively pitched where it was in 1891. and the
Fifth Infantry, although camped with it, is
placed on the left, the portion in line of
the Third, that It may readily form for
drills and ceremonies with the Sixth In
fantry with whom for tactical purposes It
will compose the Third Brigade. The Sixth
will not be on the division line, strictly
speaking, but being on the other side of the
wooded ravine tu which the First messed
in 1891, its camp will be pitehad at an an
gle. Division headquarters will be between
headquarters of the Second and Third
brigades and to the rear and on tlie left of
the Fifth Infantry, headquarter* of the
Thifd KriKHdjj and the left of the Fifth In
fantry nil abutting on the ravine. Gov
ernor Markhatn and «UrT will be at camp
during the entire week, and bis quarters
will be at division headquarters, forming
tlirtse sides of a square. Tue entrance to
camp will be in the southeast corner of the
field near to the cement works, the entrance
of 1832 from the roadway passinu the ceme
tery to be closed save for pedestrians. The
entrance, by the way. will be about ip the
middle of the space between the left of the
First and right of the Second brigade*.
Ttiere will be four outposts for the grand
guard, with tho regulars statioued at the
main entrance and the cavalry tn do the
provost duty. The regu-
lars will form a portion
of the camp and will be
under the orders of Maj
or-Genera! Dimond, as
commandant of the post.
And In this Are apparent
th« go.,d offices of Cap
tain Thomas H. Barry
of tho First Infantry,
United States army, who
hits been detailed by the
Secretary of War as in
spector of the National
Guard of California, and
who, in regaid to this
camp, has been the au-
Tisor of GenetHl Dimond
Brigadier- Cencral
In many things that promise to make this
camp such a success. It was only a few
days since that Colonel W. K. Shafter, com
manding the regiment ot regulars, wrote to
the general a very courteous letter, a-king
for a position of the line in front of his regi
ment and placing himself under orders from
general headquarters for grand guard and
outpost duty. This regiment, it may be
stated, started on its march from Bad^n on
Wednesday, and will report at camp by
Some comment has been indulged In that
General J. W. B. Montgomery of Chico, tho
seniur in the division, should not have been
given tht) comiuHnd of the First Brigade.
The fact is that he is at a health resort and
had written to General Dunond that he
would not, therefore, attend camp, and so
the command naturttlly devolved on Gen
eral Sheehan, and being the secoud in
seniority the division commander found a
happy way out of what might have proved a
dilemma. General Dickinson comiug next,
his brigade by another fortunate combina
tion of circumstances fell into its old camp
ground. Aud as General J. W. Freese of
Eureka and the Sixth Brigade will uot bo in
camp General Miller, of course, came in as
the next in rank at this camp for the com
mand of tlie Third Provisional brigade.
Every one was thus lattefted save the Fifth
Infautry, but as a compromise with its
bold warriors they were suspended in the
air like Mohammed's coffin between the Sec
ond and Third brigades.camped with one and
parading with the other. So the divislou
commander succeeded iu pleasing all.
Wlulu it has been stated that there will be
.'■<; companies in camp, in fact there will De
SS. To the Sixth Regiment will be attached
for the camp a company from Baker-field
under command of a wierau of the Seventh
Regiment, N. G. N. Y. It is a company
which is waitiui; the opportunity to be mus
tered into the service. It wears the regula
tion undress uniform, has obligated itself
to place itoolf under tlie military orders of
camp, and will not present any claim agaiest
the Slate for camp. Then in the First In
fantry is the extra company in the Second
Battalion, which the National? always fur
nish to make a twn-b ittaliun regiment of
eight compauies. The camp is for eight
day.*, of course. Several novel features are
required, which have not been obi-erved
heretofore for obvious or no reasons. They
may be outlined as. follows:
'io secure uniformity aud a formation
conforming to the new drill regulations
each regiment wili be formed for drill pur
poses into two battalions as nearly equal
as possible. Brigade commanders will direct
daily the establishment
of the color line in the
camp of each regiment,
nenlinels will be posted
thereon and all persons
in the military service
and crossing the color line
will be required to salute
the colors. Regimental
dress-parade will be held
lu each brigade, all bat
talions in It forming ai if
one regiment and colonels
alternating in command
of the parades. The cere
mony of brigade review
may be had during one
o*4 Murray, A.A.Q.
(lay of the encampment in substitution.
There win be no regimental but only brig
ade hospital*. A grand guard wi I he
mounted daily in each brigade, and ail de
tails for guard will be made by roster, the
custom of detailing entire companies hav

Interesting Statements About tbe
Early Oakland Records.
Juntas L. Hatch's Friendahip-The Body of
John Heath Found in the Bsy— Soaia Old
Deeds Affecting the Water Front.
A. W. Burrell, the only living member of
the iirst Board of Town Trustees of Oak
land, has examined the two lost volumes of
records lately fou ,d in the City Hall tower.
lie says that they are not the missing books.
Referring to the other volume found in a
bookcase in the City Clerk's office Mr.
Burrell, upon examining it, said : "It is not
the original record." After a further ex
aminaticu be pronounced the signature pro
fesiing to be hla a forgery. The writing in
the book appears to be that of Carpentier
and Huibert, clerk of the board.
In speaking about the records Mr. Burrell
said that be did not believe that Andrew
Moon was a party to stealing tho original
"I think he was too much of a gentleman
to be a party to any such business," said he.
"The true facts are," he continued, "that
the Board ot Trustees, by resolution, directed
that ali the books aud papers belonging to
the city should be put in a place of safe
keeping, as thev had reason to believe that
;ii. Attempt would be made by interested
persons to destroy them. Those records
were n>t bonnd, as this book Is, In leather,
but in stiff paper covers. Where they were
put I don't know, but I remember there
was some trouble afterward with the Town
Mar-hal, a man named Hoga:i, in recover
ing boon papers and money belonging to
the city in Us custody. What Moon told
me was that he knew where the missing
bonks wer<\ and that they could b«* pro
duced whenever wanted, and that Adams
paid Si-'"'**. 1 for one, of which Moon said he
had a perfect copy. I saw one of these
books afterward, and I am positive that
neither of these three books which claim to
be the lirst records of the turn and city is
the book 1 saw «r an original record."

There Is one piece of water front to which
there are deeds and b<>na-nd« records show
ing that the Water Front Company has no
cialiu to It. This consists of a one-fourth
interest in the strip between Cvoress and
Union street?, upon which the Fulton Iron
Works want to locate. An old deed has
been found showiug that In 1853 H. W. Car
pentier deeded a quarter Interest in this
strip to two lawyers named Samuel 11. Rob
inson and Alonzo I). Eatnes. Other deeds
show that Fames sold his interest to Kob
ininn, who in turn deeded it all to his
father-in-law, John A. flobart, who -old a
sixteenth part of it to a man named Mc-
Gowan. This was subsequently transferred
to Dr. Fall, and the remainder went to
Hobart's three heirs, two sous and a daugh

Samuel Robiuson who sold the property to

Joseph Tobin, an ex-convict, better known
