The Restaurant Keepers Hold
They Say Their Business Has
A Strong Set of Resolutions Pre
sented and Adopted.
Business Men Will Be Requested to Boy
cott These Affairs Hereafter, or
They Will Be Boycotted.
Between fifteen and twenty proprietors
of restaurants assembled yesterday after
noon at 3 o'clock, in upper Turn Verein
hall, to take action regarding the church
dinners which have been given of late
in the business portion of the city. R.
Cohen, ot the Vienna Bakery, called the
meeting to order, and John Brink was
selected as chairman and R. Cohen as
secretary. The chair stated that the
meeting had been called for the purpose
of taking some action about the church
members who persist in giving dinners
in the central part of the city. He
asked for some expression of opinion
on the part of those present.
Mr. Durkee said he was a church
member himself, but the time had come
when a stop must be put to these church
dinners in the city, or else the restau
rants would have to close up. He sug
gested that a set of resolutions be drawn
Mr. Balzer thought that the aid of the
newspapers would be more efficient than
the resolutions, but something should
be done at once.
Mr. Cohen said that he was opposed
to the churches holding lunches down
town, and he thought it was an injus
tice to the restaurant keepers and to
every merchant in the city. In order to
save time he had prepared the following
set of resolutions, which he desired to
have signed if adopted by the meeting.
He thought that all the rest of the res
taurant keepers in the city who were not
at the meeting would sign the resolu
tions, which he read as follows:
Whereas, All the churches of the city
of Los Angeles have combined to ruin
our business and deprive honest men
and women from earning a livelihood,
and thereby causing thefts, robbery and
prostitution in our business. We there
fore, in meeting assembled,
Resolve, That we condemn the action
of said church members for interfering
with legitimate business, to the detri
ment of the same.
That we respectfully condemn the
women of said churches for depriving
their own sex of the means of making an
honest living, thereby compelling them
to become street-walkers.
That we condemn the City Council for
partial legislation, for letting the said
churches carry on a restaurant business
without paying license.
That we pledge ourselves that each
and every one who belongs to the Board
of Trade or Chamber of Commerce will
withdraw from the same, as we under
' stand that they gave sanction and en
couragement to the churches in such
lines of business.
That we hereby invite the sympathy
of every laboring man to help us in this
good cause, for the sake of their fellow
workmen, and we ask every grocer, com*
mission merchant, milkman, butcher,
baker, and every other business man, to
stand by us so that we can make an
honest living, be able to pay our rent
and honest debts.
That we pledge ourselves to
boycott every newspaper that will give
the said churches running said restaur
ants free advertisement; and last, but
not least, we ask the sympathy of those
good and honest church members, and
we recognize there are many such, to
assist us in this matter, and w"e promise
them that at any and all times, if they
need money for their churches, that we,
the restaurant people of this city, will
give them a helping hand and prove to
them that they can raise more money
for their churches legitimately than
running restaurants at 25 cents a meal.
Mr. Cohen said that he was satisfied
that a number of the church people
would look at the matter in the right
light; that the action of the churches
in giving lunches down town was driv
ing men to thieving and women to
street-walking he thought was true, for
the restaurant forces were cut down
owing to the lack of business caused by
the church lunches, and the ''hashers''
were compelled to steal to live. He had
employed three girls in his family, and
owing to the lack of trade had been com
pelled to discharge two, and these two
finding nothing honest to do, had be
Several of those present objected to
the resolutions, which they said were
entirely too strong and it was suggested
that a committee be appointed to draft
a milder set.
Mr. Cohen said that he knew they
were strong, but he thought if they were
adopted and signed by all the restaurant
keepers the church lunches down town
would be stopped. He, however, had
prepared a milder set of resolutions,
which he read as follows:
We, the undersigned, restaurant-keep
ers and tax-payers of this city, do hereby
publicly protest against the unjust and
oppressive habit of the churches and
various societies in giving dinners on
every possible occasion, furnishing meals
donated by these members, to the public
at prices no restaurant-keeper can meet
We condemn the action of tlie City
Council for partial legislation in com
pelling us to pay license to do business,
when these societies give dinners free
of all expense, paying no license, tax,
rent or help.
We condemn the newspapers for pub
lishing the advertisements of these in
stitutions free of charge, if they do so,
where they compel us to pay for our ad
vertisements and subscriptions. We
ask all the labor unions to support us in
this contest, that is constantly injuring
our business in dull times. We ask the
support of the grocers, produce dealers,
milkmen and diarymen, as our interests
are their interests. We ask the support
of all business houses, for as these
churches and societies injure our busi
ness, so, too, will they injure theirs; and
last, but not least, we ask the church
people themselves to assist us in build
ing up the business interests of the city,
and not injure an honest business that
gives employment to many men and

the hard-working girls employed in the
restaurants in the city.
We pledge our warm support to any
charitable enterprise, but condemn those
institutions that deprive us of a liveli
hood, and we ask them in the name of
justice and reason, to cease their op
These resolutions were discussed at
some length and it was stated if it be
came necessary an association could be
formed and the merchants and business
men forced into boycotting the lunches.
If they did not comply with the request,
the restaurant-keepers could purchase
their supplies in San Francisco and have
them snipped here.
The chairman thought that it might be
well to appoint a committee to obtain
the signatures of the rest of the restau
rant-keepers to the resolutions.
Mr. Durkee moved that the resolu
tions be adopted. Carried, as also was
a motion that all those present sign the
It was stated it was probable that
some of the ministers would discuss the
subject from their pulpits tomorrow, and
it was thought that they would advise
against any more church lunches down

signatures, and an adjournmet was taken

NEWS OF THE RAIL.
OPINIONS REGARDING THE HTJNT
The Visit of President Huntington Set
for the 6th of May—Mr. Snedaker Re
moves to San Francisco.
The story of the interview between
President Manvel, of the Santa Fe, and
President Huntington, of the Southern
Pacific, said to have recently taken place
at San Francisco, in which Huntington
dared the Santa Fe people to try the
issue in a rate war, excited a good deal
of comment yesterday among railway
men. The statement that Manvel ex
pressed discontent over the alleged fact
that the Southern Pacific got away with
the bulk of the orange freight, is not
credited by the Santa Fe people. They
say that it is not a fact that the South
ern Pacific carries the bulk of that
part of the orange freight on which
there is competition. They declare that
the figures on this season's business will
show that the Santa Fe has shipped
more oranges directly east than the
Southern Pacific. As to the oranges
sent north they for the most part go
into territory where the Southern Pacific
has no competitor.
As to Mr. Huntington's suggestion
that the Santa Fe got "whipped" in the
last war and had better not try another,
the utterance is regarded as rather un
dignified and its correctness is therefore
questioned. If the conference has been
correctly reported it would appear to in
dicate the lively probability of trouble
later on. The present orange crop has
been carried, with the exception of a
few hundred carloads. If a war is in
contemplation by either side, it will
probably not be inaugurated for several
Assistant Division Superintendent
Muir returned to the city yesterday after
a quick trip over the Yuma division of

the trip was to make a general inspec

make his general tour over the line next

A Defense of tlie Water Company.
Editors Herald—ln your editorial of
April 25th, your remarks about the
quality of water furnished by the Los
Angeles Water Company, and of the
opinion of Mr. Caswell, are evidently
written without a proper knowledge or
conception of the source and conditions
of the water supply of this company.
All the water taken to our reservoir is
now procured from the springs in the
gravel deposits underlining the lands of
the Crystal Springs Land and Water
Company, or filtered through the large
body of sandy land adjoining thereto,
from twelve to fifteen feet below the sur
face, and is conducted from submerged
vitrified drain pipes through a covered
conduit to a stone-walled reservoir.
Here it runs in at one end and is
drawn out from the other, and is kept
in a perfectly clean and aerated con-
This supply of water furnished our
customers today is of a quality that will
compare favorably with that of any city
in the United States, and is vastly
superior to any that can be furnished
from open storage reservoirs holding a
water supply for six months or more,
exposed to the influences of sun, air and
the consequent growth and decay of
vegetation that always occurs in a warm
climate under such conditions. Our
supply should not be confounded with
that of the hill lands, which comes
from the open ditch owned by the city,
bringing water for irrigation purposes."
YVe should be pleased to have a repre
sentative of your paper go over the line
of our property and make a personal ex
amination of the same, and will gladly
furnish an opportunity to do so at your
convenience. Very truly yours,

A Trotter and a Pacer Test
The Stallion Othello Wins with
Various Matters Up Before the Supe
rior Courts Yesterday.
The Pasadena Outfall Sewer Case Before
Judge Shaw—The Trouble the Drop
ping of a Note Has Caused.
Yesterday afternoon a number of
horsemen assembled at the Agricultural
park track to witness a match race be
tween G. H. Reed's trotting stallion
Othello and Frank Monroe's pacer P. Q.,
for a purse of $200, best three in five
heats. Messrs. N. A. Covarrubias, C.
A. Durfee and J. E. Pleasants officiated
as judges, while Messrs. Ed. Ryan, Gus.
Walters and A. J. Fleming held chro
nometers as official time-keepers. The
match was set for 1:30 o'clock, but it
was fully forty minutes later before the
horses were led out to the track, Walter
Maben being behind the trotter and
P. Q. being driven by his owner.
At 2:20 o'clock the pair went away for
the first heat to a capital start, after
scoring twice, but Othello took the lead
at the turn, and, increasing his ad
vantage down the back-stretch, came
away an easy winner by two and a-half
lengths. Time, 2:28%.
The pair scored twice, but went away
in good style at the third attempt for
the second heat, with the pacer half a
length in the lead. At the quarter pole,
however, Othello closed up, and passing
his opponent, who dropped back and
never again got on even terms with him,
won easily with three lengths to spare.
Time, 2:3"l? 4 .
When the pair faced tlie starter for the
third heat both were going splendidly,
and there was every indication that this
would be the greatest heat of the three ;
but rounding the turn both broke badly.
Maben soon got the trotter down to
work and forged ahead several lengths,
but P.O. went to pieces, and Othello
was twelve lengths away before Monroe
got him into his gait again, and al
though he made a brave attempt to de
crease the gap between them, he was
fully that distance behind when Othello
came under the wire. The trotter broke
badly when about fifty yards from home,
but he proved conclusively his su
periority in speed over the pacer, as the
latter never got near enough to chal
lenge him after rounding the first turn.
The pacing gelding P. Q. is by Odd
fellow, out of a thoroughbred mare,
whose name is unknown to his owner.
Othello is one of the best bred stallions
in the country, being by Sutton, out of
Atlanta, a full sister to "Beautiful Bells,
being by The Moor—Minnehaha. He is
perhaps more like Sultan than any other
of that sire's offspring, and his Sultan
gait is unmistakable. Othello was re
cently purchased by his present owner
from W. K. Robinson, of Santa Ana, for
$5,000, and Walter Maben, who has
driven him several times in trials, is of
the opinion that he can easily beat the
time he made in his first heat yester
day. He will be shipped with Orin
Hickock's string from San Francisco on
May Ist to Lexington, Kentucky.
IN THE COURTS.
What the Judges, Lawyers, Clients
and Witnesses Were At.
In the United States Court Bob Straw -
fenger, charged with preventing another
man from crossing his ranch in Cala
basas, was discharged by Commissioner
Van Dyke, being able to demonstrate
that he had a right to prevent such tres
passing on his property.
Harry Herbert was tried lor perjury
by a jury, before Judge Ross. It was
alleged that he committed this crime in
swearing that S. A. Waldron had aban
doned a claim to some Government
land in Antelope valley, when, as a mat
ter of fact, Waldron had the land seeded
to grain. The testimony for all this
failed to show that Herbert did
not swear in good faith according to the
information and belief he was possessed
of. Herbert swore that he did so think
when he testified m the land case, and
moreover the attorney who conducted
the case knew what Herbert's informa
tion was and instructed him that under
the circumstances he was justified in
swearing that it was his opinion that
Waldron had abandoned the land. The
court instructed the jury strongly in the
prisoner's behalf, and acting under such
instructions the jury very promptly re
turned a verdict of not guilty.
In Department 5 of the Superior Court
the moral cesspool of theDeTurk divorce
case was closed and the material cess
pool of Pasadena's sewage was opened
as to a means of purification. The con
tention is between the City of Pasadena
and T. B. Bishop, Esq., of San Francisco.
It is to condemn a right-of-way over the
lands of Mr. Bishop for the outfall sewer
of Pasadena, on its way to the sewer
farm, south of Mr. Bishop's property.
It will take some time to settle. It "is
more than three years since this conten
tion was begun, and at that time the
Hekald reported its beginning merely
as a matter of news, with the forecast
added that such a case was liable to stay
in the courts for some time. The Pasa
dena paper "jumped on the Hekald
with both feet" for this, alleging that it
showed animus against the beautiful
Crown of the Valley. It was not just to
the Herald, which merely gave news it
considered of importance, and the event
proves how correct this paper was in its
views. The case is being stubbornly
fought, M. E. Arthur, Esq., City
Attorney of Pasadena, assisted by
the Messrs. Haynes & Mitchell,
appearing for the plaintiff city,
and C. 8. Wheeler, Esq., of San Fran
cisco, assisted by Hon. S. M. White and
Graves, O'Melveny & Shankland, for
Mr. Bißhop. Mr. Wheeler is a remark
ably bright and able young attorney.

DROPPED A NOTE.
Mrs. Seras Held to Answer on a
Charge of Assault.
Mrs. Refugia Seras was yesterday held
to answer by Justice Lockwood in $300
bonds to the charge of having assaulted
a youth named A. L. Frye, on the night
of the Bth inst. with a deadly weapon,
by shooting at him. The complainant,
A. L. Frye, failed to appear when the
case was called, and on being brought in
on an attachment he was unable to show
cause why he should not be punished
for contempt of court in refus
ing to answer the order of the
court. He was sent to jail for
ten days. He alleged that ■on
the night jn question he called at tlie
residence of Mrs. Seras, on Upper Main
Btreet, to see her sister-in-law, a young
lady named Hawkins, with whom he
had become acquainted. As was his
Custom, he dropped a note into Miss
Hawkins's room through the window,
and just as he was leaving the premises,
Mrs. Seras threw up an adjoining win
dow and fired a shot at him. It was
stated that she did not know him, and
it was shown that she was unaware of
his nocturnal visits to her sister-in-law,
and that Mrs. Seras mistook him for a
burglar. The defense moved the court
for a dismissal on the ground that the
evidence was insufficient to sustain the
charge, but the court denied the motion.
Held to Answer.
Charles W. Corlew, who was charged
by T. R. Long, the Central-avenue high
wayman, with having been his accom
plice in the holding up of A. Nelms, a
