The Crown Hillites Adopt
They Object to the Way They
A Sudden Death and Inquest at
Mr. C. P. Huntington "Will Not Visit
Los Angeles—Other Matters of
The Crown Hills board of trade met
Tuesday evening and discussed several
matters of importance to the West End.
The following resolutions regarding the
First-street grade were adopted:
Whereas, Nature has undesignedly
interposed an unimportant hill between
us and the business center of the city;
Whereas, Perched on said hill, a few
citizens inherit rights of possession su
perior to the universal and immemorial
right of eminent domain ; and,
Whereas, The just demands and
rights of the many to go through said
hill is obstructed by the few, in the face
of an intention and offer to pay all costs
and damages; and,
Whereas, It is sought by the few to
establish a grade over said hill of one
foot in nine and one-sixth, a grade much
worse than that now being destroyed
and revised on the Temple-street hill;
Whereas, The foregoing grade is a
local improvement, precluding an assess
ment district and involving heavy dam
ages to property on cross streets which a
better grade with a short tunnel will
mainly avoid; and,
Whereas, The estimates of the en
gineers, less than onr own estimate,
nave effectually disproved the wild and
misleading assertions of excessive cost,
and have shown that a good grrde can
be paid for within the means of an as
sessment district; now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That we place ourselves on
record as follows: AYe will not cease in
the endeavor to open a thoroughfare
into the city until such thoroughfare is
obtained. If one project fails we will
try another, and then another, and in
due lapse of time we will try each in
turn again. If we are denied by one
council or blocked by one mayor, we
will demand our rights" by each succeed
ing mayor and council, and will take a
hand in the election of city officials. If
a grade is established that ignores our
rights, we will overthrow it and bring
it down at the earliest opportunity.
We call on all fair-minded citizens to aid
us by word and deed in opening a pass
age-way through a barrier that must
eventually give way before the unani
mous demands of a large and rapidly
increasing portion of the city.
The following resolution as regards
water rates was adopted:
Resolved, That if meters are used at
all by the Citizens' Water Company,
every consumer should be supplied with
one, in order that no discrimination be
The following resolution was also
That we recommend to the Crown
Hills Improvement Society and to the
West End board of trade to request the
the city council to give immediate no
tice of intention to terminate the lease
of the Citizens' Water Company of the
water obtained from the Los Angeles
The following resolution was then in
troduced by Messrs. C. M. Wells and J.
M. Davies and adopted:
Resolved, That the citizens are re
quested to report to the Crown Hills
Improvement Society or West End

charges for water or unjust discrimina
tion in charges or violation of the water
Resolved, That we recommend citizens
to refuse to pay unreasonable meter and

C. P. Huntington Called East on Busi
A dispatch was received yesterday by
the local Southern Pacific officials to the
effect that President C. P. Huntington
had been called east on business and
would not visit this part of the state at
this time, as was expected. Mr. Hunt
ington will be in the east about two
months, and will probably make a trip
to Los Angeles on his return.

A Young Man Dies Suddenly at Lan
Coroner Meredith held an inquest at
Lancaster, on Tuesday evening, upon the
body of Charles Slipp, a young man
about 35 years of ago, who died suddenly
at the Lancaster hotel, on Monday last,
of consumption. From the testimony
adduced at the official inquiry into the
cause of his death, it was learned that
on Friday, the 25th ult., Slipp arrived at
Lancaster froni Norwalk, in a very weak
condition. assisted over to B.

third day after his arrival he was very
much better and he improved to such
an extent that on Monday morning last
he announced his intention of return
ing to Norwalk. Hannah packed
his trunk for him, and prepared
to accompany his guest. After pur
chasing tickets, Hannah suggested that
Slipp had better eat dinner before the
train arrived, and the young man went
into the dinning-room and sat down.
Shortly after he had taken his seat,
however, he had a hemorrahage, and
Hannah was called in and found a lady
holding Slipp's head. The youth was
bleeding at the nostrils and shortly after
wards fainted. He was carried to his
room, but never rallied and death
ensued in a few minutes after his re
moval from the dinning-room.
The jury returned a verdict of death
from natural causes.
A Block of Granite Falls on Two Men
in a Monrovia Quarry.
The Herald's Monrovia correspondent
sends in word that two men were almost
instantly killed at that place yesterday.
There names aie C. M. Whittaker and
G. W. Stubbs. They were loading a
two-ton block of granite at the quarry
and the derricd broke, letting the big
stone down with all its weight. It
caught the two men with fatal effect,
and when they were extricated they were
almost dead. Medical aid was at once
dispatched to the quarry. Whittaker's
skull was fractured and Stubbs was found
to have sustained internal injuries of a
very serious nature. Life was
not quite extinct when the men
were taken out, but at the time the dis
patch was sent in from the quarry it
was generally conceded that neither of
the unfortunate men bad any chance of
surviving the injuries for more than a
very short period.
The Baxter brothers own the quarry,
and employ a good many men, as they
are getting out 500 cars of rock for the
Santa Fe Company. The quarry is
north of the city of Monrovia and near
THE DEPARTMENT OF ARIZONA
MAY BE DISCONTINUED.
The District to be Divided Between the
Departments of Texas and California.
Steps to Prevent the Move.
About a month ago semi-official in
formation was received at army head
quarters in this city that with the
retirement of General Grierson from
the service, on the Bth of July, changes
would be made in the distribution of the
business of the department of war that
would result in the dismemberment of
the military department of Arizona, a
portion of the force now retained at the
headquarters of that department in this
city being removed to San Francisco and
the remainder to San Antonio, Texas, in
the department of Texas, division of the
Missouri. This news came through pri
vate, though entirely trustworthy chan
nels, and has since been corroborated by
other information received from two dis
One of the causes of this rumored
change is the fact that there is a preju
dice in the mind of the commander of
the army against placing a colonel in
command of a department. Until re
cently the department of Arizona was in
charge of Colonel Grierson, but that offi
cer has now become a brigadier-general,
and with his retirement the army will be
left short one general officer. A bill is
now before congress to revive the grade
of lieutenant-general, and unless that
becomes a law, which is problematic, a
colonel must command one of the depart
ments under the present condition of
There has also been a complaint made,
groundless though it is, that the main
tenance of department headquarters in
this city is an unnecessary expense. It
is stated that a considerable saving will
be made by dividing the department of
Arizona between the departments of
California and Texas, and transacting
all the business at San Antonio and San
Francisco. The change also includes
the abolition of the department of the
Columbia, with headquarters at Van
couver barracks, and the transfer of the
business of that department to San
The rumor of the change first reached
the ears of Major Bonebrake last Tues
day, and he presented the matter to the
secretary of the chamber of commerce.
That official, with Major Bonebrake, sent
telegrams to General Miles, and to dif
ferent persons in authority at Washing
ton, asking for further information, and
also for suggestions as to what could be
done to prevent the change. As far as
known no replies have as yet been re
ceived to these telegrams,
There are employed in the army head
quarters in this city about fifty men in
various capacities, all drawing and ex
pending liberal salaries in Los Angeles.
Besides this, the quartermaster's and
commissary's supplies for eighteen
posts in .Sew Mexico, Arizona and Cali
fornia are contracted from here, and in
the neighborhood of $150,000 a month is
Thus it will be seen that the removal
of the headquarters would work great
injury to the section. All possible efforts
will be put forth by the chamber of
commerce and other public bodies to
prevent tiiis change, and action of some
kind will be taken immediately.
General Grierson and Colonel Volk
mar, adjutant-general, are both in Ari
zona, and have not yet been questioned
as to the matter, but from inquiries
made at the offices here it is probable
that they have not been notified of the

The following resolutions,offered by J.
J. Jones, were read and referred to the
committee on commerce:
Whereas. The appropriation for the
improvement of San Pedro harbor for
the fiscal year was only $35,000, a sum
totally insufficient for any practical
benefit to the said harbor; and
Whereas, The government has ap
propriated larger sums of money on less
impoitant places along the Pacific coast
for harbor improvements than at San
Pedro ; therefore be it
Resolved, That a committee of five
members from the chamber be appointed
by the chair to investigate the reason
why toe appropriation was so small, so
as to hereafter avoid mistakes if any
have been made by the people in asking
for government aid in the improvements
of our harbor.
The secretary read the following com
munication from the secretary of the
Cahnenga Township Producers' Union,
which provoked some discussion :
Coleghove, Los Angeles countvJ
May 12, 1890.)
To the Chamber of Commerce:
Gentlemen —At a meeting of the Ca
huenga Township Producers' Union
held at the Pass school house May sth I
was directed to ask the attention of your
honorable body to the subject of the
establishment of a market place in the
city of Los Angeles, it being the general
sentiment of said producers' union that
with your valuable co-operation that
most desirable end can be attained.
We doubt not that you will agree
with us that such a market place, under
the usual and proper municipal regula
tions, will result in very great beneht to
both the country producer and the city
consumer of ranch products, and at the
same time benefit the people at large by
encouraging home industry and dis
couraging importations of the common
est food products. Very respectfully
yours, Seward Cole,
Secretary Cahuenga Township Pro
A motion was made to refer the mat
ter to the committee on public improve
ments. Captain A. W. Barrett thought
the subject ought first to be discussed
by the chamber. Mr. C. M. Wells said
that the question was one that merited
attention. All cities of the size of Los
Angeles had public market-houses
where the consumer could meet the pro
ducer. He thought that the matter
should go to the committee for careful
consideration ; that they should find out
whether there was any suitable place
for such a market, and report at the
next meeting of the chamber.
Mr. McKoon suggested that Mr. Wells
be added to the committee on commerce
to assist in the work, but that gentle
man declined to serve, and Captain Bar
rett promised that the committee would
have a report ready by the next meet
A communication was read from

Major W, Junes, Los Angeles, Cal.:

now, Los Angeles and Southern Califor

suaded that unless you folks do some
thing to force attention to your needs
even the public building appropria
tion will prove a disappointment.
It is true San Jose pushed her bill
through and several other important
measures affecting Northern California
interests have gone a long way toward
realization, but thus far our own section
has been almost neglected.
Senator Plumb's attack upon San
Diego in the senate, in which he de
scribed that city as a village of 10,000
people, is a fair sample of the knowledge
eastern people have of Southern Califor

San Francisco and the bay counties will
knock the persimmon this year, unless
Los Angeles makes her importance
known and vigorously demands tier
share of the grand prizes. Yours truly,
T. W. Blackburn.
Mr. W. S. Van Dorn suggested that
the letter be referred to the committee
on public buildings, with instructions to
report to the board of directors. He
thought that immediate action should
be taken. Los Angeles would be left
unless something was done immedi
ately. The directory should, if neces
sary, call a special meeting of the
Captain Barrett said that Los Angeles
should have a man at Washington espe
cially to look after her interests. San
Francisco, San Jose and other northei n
cities had such men, and paid them to
push such matters through. This dis
trict had a representative at Washing
ton, but he did not seem to bother him
self much about Los Angeles.
Mr. Fish had seen by the papers that
Colonel H. H. Markham had gone on to
Washington, and thought he would be
a good man to turn the matter over to.
Mr. McKoon thought the matter had
been talked of long enough and it was
now time for action. The chamber of
commerce and board of trade should co
operate in the endeavor to secure appro
General Ronton was in favor of re
questing Colonel Markham, in a dis
patch, to do what he could. Mr. Fish
moved that the president and secretary
send a telegram to Colonel Markham
asking him to urge the making of ap
propriations for the public buildings and
Indian school, and also to look after the
interests of the harbor. The motion
was carried, President Jones suggesting
that all efforts be concentrated on the
public building, so that the chances of
success would not be lessened by asking
Mr. McKoon moved that 10,000 copies
of the pamphlet prepared by Mr. Fish,
on orange culture in Southern Califor
nia, be ordered printed for distribution in
"California on Wheels" and otherwise.
There was a lack of printed matter
about this section, and this pamphlet
was one of the best that he had seen.
It could be purchased at the rate of $25
per 1,000. The book was already in type
at Racine, and he understood "that "the
chamber of commerce pamphlet would
not be out for some time.
Capt. Barrett moved that the matter
be referred to the ways and means com

coming from. He did not think that

Mr. Griffith thought that the pam

C. M. Wells seconded the motion to buy
the pamphlet. He considered it one of
the best be had seen. Capt. Barrett
urged his motion to refer. Unless more
members were brought in he did not see
where the money was coming from.
Mr. Fish defended the pamphlet, and
Capt. Barrett said that the work of
printing should be done at home. He
had had better work than was offered
done in Los Angeles for less money. He
believed that every dollar should be kept
