Monday, September 14 1908 -- Another cartoon about the "Solid Three", Herriman's favorite whipping boys lately. For those who don't recall, a recap:
County commissioners Patterson, Eldridge and Wilson, dubbed the "Solid Three", put together a bond issue for the county and sold it off, probably to favored friends, at a high interest rate. They did this without proper public meetings and without going through the normal channels to determine a fair interest rate. On discovering this breach of the public trust, Angelenos are, not too surprisingly, up in arms.
