The Charier Committee held an

iv the chair. During tho evening
the discussion ranged as far as sec
tion five of article three. Quite a
spirited little debate sprang up
upon the expediency of granting to
the city tho power to sell all kinds
of properly and as to the expedi
ency of establishing a limitation as
to the time when a deed should
pass to Ihe purchaser.
In the course of the debate ex-
Gov. Downey said the city of Los
Angeles once had a magulflcent
patrimony which had all beeu dis
sipated. The city lands had dis
appeared and there was now noth
ing to show for them. He was op
posed to grantiug the city any such
power of sale.
Ex-Mayor Beaudry was also op
posed to the grant of such power;
and, in the course of Ills remarks,
lie suggested that it was a pity Ihat
ex-Governor Downey had not al
ways shared his present views.
In reply, Gov. Downey delled
any one to show that he had ever
ucquired any lands from the city
without paying for them.
Tho sense of the meetiug was
! h it the city should not be allowed
losell property without a special
act of tlio Legislature and au ap
proving vote of the people. Tbe
whole subject was referred to a
special Committee, consisting of
