FOUNDLING HOME INVESTIGATION Dr. Ruggles Makes His Report to the Governor. He Finds Little to Condemn and Much to Praise—A Suggestion About the Children. The report of Dr. Ruggles, President of the State Board of Health, to Governor Budd, on the investigation of the charges against the management of the Foundlings' Home, was made public yesterday for the first time. It is a voluminous one, and fully covers the ground. After recapitulating the circumstances under which the investigation was had, and stating that two of the charges—those that persons wishing to adopt children from the home were refused permission, unless they paid a stated amount, and that State aid had been obtained for children absent from the institution —were withdrawn before the investigation. • He then says: "The evidence was Very positive and conclusive that previous to about the Ist of October the institution was not in the neat and cleanly condition it should have been In. The walls were smoked, the paint dirty, the bedsteads were, many of them, wooden, and infected with bedbugs. "It is in evidence at that time, to the credit of the managers, it can be said, a special meeting was called and measures ordered taken to have this sad condition of things relieved, all of this previous to the inspection visit per order of the local Board of Health. Since that time the renovating process has been going on as rapidly and as thoroughly as the financial condition of the institution will permit. "From personal observations I am able to say that the walls are newly and neatly calcimined; the paint renewed and varnish applied wherever necessary; the wooden bedsteads,which had been kindly and with mistaken charity bestowed, had been condemned and consigned to the flames, and new Iron bedsteads supplied in their places. It is satisfactorily shown that the present condition is what is desired, though It must be admitted that the condition previous to the date mentioned was Very reprehensible. "The allegation as to the underfed condition of the inmates was not taken up and fully considered. Much emphatic testimony was presented as to the amount and character of the food furnished. But the great preponderance of evidence of the Lady Managers, matron and the cook, whose boy was one of the unfortunate starved ones; the presentation of bills for supplies, supplemented by my personal examination of the children, compel me to say that the allegation is not sustained. "The next in order of consideration was the allegation of very great mortality in the institution. The computation from the identified records of the Institution shows me that the mortality was 53 per cent, of the admissions. At the first glance this appears to be very large and justifies a presentation of the allegation. But when it is considered that the great majority of these unfortunates are of a degraded, dissipated and diseased origin, it does not seem so strange. Also, it is to be considered that over GO per cent, of all hand-fed babies die before arriving at the age of 5 years; that nearly IK) per cent, of all the babies in cities and towns, under 1 year of age, and who are fed on artificial nutriment, die. Also, that sanitary statistics and foundling hospital reports, both foreign and domestic, show a much larger per cent, than does this institution. I am surprised it has done as well as it has. It, by comparison with those of Russia, Italy and France, is much less. "Very strong inferential evidence was produced to sustain the allegation as to Immorality among the inmates. These charges are of a very serious nature, and, if sustained, should receive very severe condemnation. The evidence is somewhat conflicting, but enough is shown to place some of the inmates in a very compromising situation. "There seems to be a very peculiar condition attached to this institution. It is, nominally, a foundlings' home, yet really an orphan asylum, with inmates of all ages up to 13 years. If it be really a home for foundlings, my opinion is that no children over 5 or 6 years Bhould be admitted, and those already there, over that age, should be transferred to the regularly organized orphan asylum. Or, if this plan of organization is to be continued, then a system of most rigid discipline should be immediately adopted, so that a complete, perfect and positive separation of sexes should be maintained, and no possibility of a recurrence of what is the foundation of this allegation." INSTALLATION CEREMONIES. Officers of Sunnier Post and Sumner Belief Corps. Thursday evening at Foresters' Hall the newly elected officers of Sumner Post, No. 3, G. A. R., and Sumner Relief Corps, No. 11, were duly installed Into office by General L. Tozer and Mrs. Cunningham. The attendance was large and the exercises very interesting. It was admitted by the old veterans that the ladies carried off the palm for •the ease and smoothness of their work, one old grizzly remarking that "the ladies had the best of it in such work surely, but wait until the attack (on the eatables) commences." The Relief Corps had arranged a surprise in the way of a neat supper, which ell partook of after the exercises, and It being leap year the ladies chose their own escorts to table. Musical exercises *-ere rendered as follows: Piano duet, "by Misses Gladys and Stella Willey; song, by Baby Anita Medley; recitation, by Miss Bessie Adams, and a song by Jliss May Cunningham.

A "Record-Union" reporter heard yesterday that on Monday next the night force at the railroad company's rolling mill would be returned to work. This force, numbering some twenty-five men, were among those recently laid off by the company. It was also said that other men were being put on. Inquiry was made of H. J. Small. Superintendent of Motive Power and Construction, and he admitted that the rolling-mill force had been called back, owing to some heavy orders that had come in for material. Asked what was the outlook for any considerable increase in shop force in the near future, Mr. Small said he had no doubt that by March all the departments there would be again recruited up to their full complement of men.

SACRAMENT* DAILY RECOBB-TTSTTOX, SATTTRBAT, JAXTTABT 4, 1896. KOCH AND M'CURDY WERE HELD. They Will Have to Answer for Resisting an Officer. A Young Man Who Prided Himself Upon His Knowledge of Blackstone's Writings. The examination of L. Koch and W. J. McCurdy on a charge of resisting an officer took place in the Police Court yesterday. Although it did not appear during the trial, the trouble seems to have arisen from the fact that Hall, Luhrs & Co. had given L. J. Wells, the proprietor of the Yosemite Saloon, on J street, notice that if his bill was not paid on last Staturday they would attach his place. He owed Koch about $200 for services as barkeeper and gave him a bill of sale of the saloon, and the latter thought Deputy Sheriff Hinters had no right to attach It. Deputy Sheriff Hinters testified to attachment papers in a suit having been placed in his hands for service on the Yosemite Saloon, as narrated in the "Record-Union" some days ago. When he went to serve it Koch claimed to have bought the saloon from •Wells, against jvhom the suit was directed. Witness told him if he could produce the bill of sale it would be all right. He then attempted to eject witness, and McCurdy sided in with him. After a scuffle for the k;y he placed the handcuffs on McCurdy, and he and Officer Talbot pursued and captured Koch. The latter tried to pull his pistol, but Talbot took it away from him. McCurdy kept shaking his finger in \\ itness' face and telling him he had no right there. He told McCurdy he had better save his advice for his client. McCurdy then asked witness if he was a friend of Bill Harlow, and he answered that he was friendly with him. McCurdy said, "Well, I am a friend of his, too. I know my business. I have not read Blackstone six months for nothing." Witness told McCurdy that if the saloor was wrongly attached there was a legal way for him to recover possession ol it. Eugene Wachhorst testified to seeing some disturbance at the saloon and went over there. He saw McCurdy talking excitedly, and advised him to be quiet and not interfere with the officer. When Hinters placed handcuffs on McCurdy the latter objected to being arrested, and witness advised him not to resist, and he submitted. W. A. Anderson testified to seeing Koch run by him pu-£ued by Hinters. He was caught just round the corner and tried to pull out his pistol. Witness advised him to desist, but the scuffle went on until Olficer Talbot took the pistol from him. D. E. Alexander appeared as counsel for McCurdy, and S. Luke Howe and C, M. Beckwith for Koch. Owing to their objections to testimony by Hinters regarding the writ of attachment, Justice Henry was sent for and had to prove that he was a duly elected and qualified Justice of the Peace, and to produce his docket to prove the writ ot attachment. M. J. Dillman testified to seeing a disturbance, and going to the saloon. Hinters had the arms of McCurdy pinioned, but released them and they talked a few minutes, when a scuffle for the key took place. He saw Koch make a motion as if to draw a pistol, but saw no weapon. He saw Hinters and Talbot follow Koch and bring him back. Hinters was recalled and testified that the saloon was Wells', and that his name was over the door. When Kooh and McCurdy opened the door he went in. Koch said he had a bill of sale o? the place, but did not offer to produce it. They held the door on him, until hz forced them to open it. McCurdy shoo.< his finger in witness' face, and talked till he was tired of hearing him, and he finally told McCurdy he hi 1 better advise his client. McCurdy tried to lock ti.e door and witness ordered him not to, and took the key from him and gave it to C. N. Thompson. McCurdy knocked it out of Thompson's hand and Koch finally got it after a scuffle. C. N. Thompson testified to goinjr with Hinters to serve the attachment. McCurdy and Koch tried to lock Hinters in, but he drew his revolver and made them desist. McCurdy shook his finger in Hinters' face and told him that he would have him behind the bars before 5 o'clock. After a half-hour of scuffling and argument Hinters threatened to arrest McCurdy and the latter told him he could not do it. McCurdy advised Koch not to give up the key. Walter H. Stocker testified to seem? the crowd, and going over to see what was the matter. He saw McCurdy gesticulating and calling all the people of Sacramento County to witness that the Teputy Sheriff was exceeding his duty. Witness heard him tell Koch to order Hinters out, and if he did not. go within the specified time to take the law into his own hands. Witness had been an officer himself, and as he thought Hinters would need help, he determined to stand by him. "Ah! you wanted a little notoriety, I suppose," said Attorney Alexander. "No," said the witness, "I have all tbe notoriety I want in Sacramento. I am a Democrat." There was a general laugh and the attorney remarked, "Well, that shows you to be a man of discretion. lam a Democrat myself." Witness continued, that he advised Hinters to arrest McCurdy and called his attention to Koch, who was running away, and afterward told him that he had seen the whole affair and would be a witness, if desired. W. J. Woods testified to seeing much of the trouble. He saw Koch have his hand apparently on his pistol and being friendly to him, advised him not to resist the officer. Koch subsided, but Mc- Curdy kept advising him to put Hinters out. Hinters finally arrested McCurdy. and put handcuffs on him and Koch started off. Officer Talbot testified that Hinters asked him to catch Koch and warned him that the latter had a big gun. Witness, when he caught Koch, caught hold of his arm and told him he wanted him. Koch immediately went for his gun and tried for at least three minutes to get it out, but witness held his right hand so that he could not pull it out. He told Koch that he was an officer and he had better give up the gun. Attorney Alexander asked that the prisoners be discharged, saying that he did not consider there was any serious resistance —in fact, not so much as he had seen in other cases. In his opinion there had been no more serious offense against the Deputy Sheriff than a little "chin music." Justice Davis said he had never seen that term in his legal reading, although some great legal writers may have used it. He did not know what Mr. Alexander meant and thought it was a clear case of resisting an officer who went to serve his papers in a peaceable manner. It was to be regretted that McCurdy had not read his Blackstone to better purpose and found more knowledge in it. He held them both to answer before the Superior Court, with bail fixed at $500. Koch was then arraigned on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon, and pleaded guilty. He was fined $10. MONGOLIAN VOTERS. Possibly a New Element lv the Politics of the State. Wong Kirn Ark, a young Chinaman who is now trying to gain a foothold on California soil, having just arrived from China, but who has been refused by Collector Wise, claims to be an American-born citizen, and United States Judge Morrow had decided that he is such. Mr. Ark has proven to the satisfaction of the court that he was born in Sacramento in 1873, and that he went to China a year ago on a visit. Collector Wise, however, does not admit that a native-born descendant of Mongolian parents is a citizen, and will appeal to the Supreme Court from the decision of Judge Morrow. If this young Chinaman should be declared to be a citizen, then there are several thousand Chinese citizens in this State, and of course they will be entitled to the ballot. And if this should come to pass, what a scramble there will be among candidates for office to secure thf: Chinese vote! What a "picnic" George Rider will have whenever a campaign is on! The First Ward will be solid, of course, in conventions, but not by the votes of the old-time delegates that were wont to hold down the politics of that end of the town. Imagine, too, the effect of a lot of highbinder delegates in a Democratic convention such as that which recently met in Armory Hall, each man with a gun up his sleeve. But the possibilities are unbounded should the Supreme Court declare that that alleged Sacramento Chinaman is an American citizen. It is enough to make one shudder to contemplate them. HOTEL ARRIVALS. Arrivals at the Golden Eagle Hotel yesterday: Louis James and wife, Kansas City; E. O. Waymire, Dayton. O.; William C. Voorsanger, C. H. Jones, T. R. Tilley, Joe Pqheim, John W.

The complaint was made by Will Watson, acting as Deputy Sheriff. The defendant pleaded guilty and was fined $10, which he paid. Bonds Redeemed.

This season of the year when the enterprising retail merchant is in the habit of instituting a clearance sale preparatory to placing spring orders is a joyful one for bargain hunters. Each time yesterday the "Record-Union" man passed Geiser & Kaufman's an eager crowd was noted, each with his or her mind intent on securing a nicely fitting pair of item 3 or item 4 as advertised on the last page of the "Record- Union." The members of the firm and the salesmen made it a point to assure as many as possible of the customers that this was not a clearance sale of old stock, as they have been in business less than a year and consequently can have no old stock, but was rather a sale to prevent the accumulation of old stock, as it is the fixed policy of the concern to have nothing but new, stylish goods. * Medical Partnership.
