THE CITY COUNCIL.
The Contract for Printing
the New Charter.
THE WATER WAR AT AN END.
The Streets to be Kept Clean While
the Odd Fellows are iv
The City Council met yesterday morn
ing, President Humphreys in the chair,
and Councilmen Hawley, Moriarty,
Lovell, Cohn, Book, Collins, Sinsabaugh,
Bosbyshell, Mathews and Hiller present.
Clerk Teed read a communication from
the limes, claiming that its bid for pub
lishing the Charter was lower than that
of the Tnbune, to which paper the con
tract was awarded.
Mr. Book moved that the action
awarding the contract to the Tribune be
Mr. Colin said that the contract was
oat of the hands of the Council, and was
in the hands of the Mayor, and could not
be reconsidered until he had refused to
The Mayor was sent for.
Mr. Hawley moved tbat the City At
torney take action to forfeit the franchise
of the East Side Water Company. Mr.
Hawley said that the residents of East
Los Angeles had been without water for
Mr. Cohn moved that the Water Com
pany be notified to furnish Water, and
if it does not, that legal steps be taken.
The following messages were received
from the Mayor:
I return herewith without my approval
an ordinance entitled "An ordinance de
claring Los Angeles street open and that
Negro Alley be vacated." I make no
objection to section 6 of that ordinance
declaring Los Angeles street open, but,
on the contrary, am decidedly in favor of
it, and would recommend that a new or
dinance be immediately passed, embrac
ing that part of the ordinance herewith
returned providing that said street be de
I am, however, opposed to section 2 of
that ordinance, vacating Negro Alley, as
Ido not think it just or equitable that
the property owners on that street should
lose their present frontage or have any
of their rights impaired without a fair
consideration. A number of these prop
erty owners have presented strong aud
serious objections to me in the matter,
and their prayer should be heeded. The
frontage they have now is of considerable
value, and should the street be vacated
by your order it would entail an expense
and, in my opinion, an unnecessary liti
fation upon the city. I this connection
would further recommend that the
Street Superintendent be instructed to
immediately remove all obstructions on
Los Angeles street, and that the neces
sary steps be at once taken to grade and
pave that street.
On motion, the message was received
An ordinance declaring Los Angeles
street opened was read.
Mr. W. Van Dyke asked that the mat
ter be referred to the Board of Public
Works. He thought it was not right to
decide to allow Negro alley to remain
open and to open Los Angeles street.
The contract made in the Superior Court
was that Negro alley should be closed.
Mr. Variel appeared on behalf of the
property owners who wanted Negro alley
kept open. These people had property
fronting on Negro alley, and if it was
closed there would be no outlet.
The ordinance was then adopted, and
the Street Superintendent was instructed
to remove the obstructions on Los An
The following message from the Mayor
was read and the suggestions were or
dered carried out by the Board of Public
Works and Street Superintendent:
In view of the many visitors who will
shortly be in this city to attend the Odd
Fellows' Encampment, I would suggest
to your honorable body to authorize and
instruct the Street Superintendent to em
ploy an extra force of men to thoroughly
clean up the streets and gutters at once.
The many piles of building materials
blocking up the principal streets and
sidewalks are an eye-sore and should be
at once removed as in a number of in
stances the contractors have taken bodily
possession of the public pavement, forc
ing pedestrians to go into the streets.
I would suggest that all permission
granted for the use of a portion of a street
for building material be so modified as to
make the contractor put the walks in a
condition to enable the crowds of visitors
during the next two weeks to walk about
freely. Please instruct the Superinten
dent of Streets to do this work without
any routine delay.
The Gas Committee recommended
that fifteen electric lights be erected at
the Sixth Street Park and at the Encamp
ment grounds. Adopted, and the mat
ter left with the Gas Committee, with
power ta act.
Mr. Cohn called attention to the fact
that stone was being quarried on the
Elysian Park. The matter was referred
to the Park Committee to investigate.
Mayor Workman reported that he had
not received the contract for printing the
The Gas Committee submitted a re
port recommending the establishing of a
number of new lamps.
Mr. Cohn moved that the report be
laid over for two months until the Elec
tric Light Company has the eufheient
Mr. Lovell thought that the suburbs of
the city should be left in the dark.
Mayor Workman introduced General
Snyder, who had a special system of
sewerage which he desired the city to
adopt. He was requested to appear be
fore the Council at its session to-day aud
explain his plans.
A recess was taken at this point until
The Tribune Publishing Co. sent in a
communication positively protesting
against any change in the matter of
printing the City Charter on the ground
that its bid was the lowest, being only
$647.90, while the bid of the Times was
$688. Besides this, the contract having
been signed and the copy delivered, the
matter was being set.
Col. Otis of the Times said that in re
considering the amount of space the
Charter would take he had fonnd that it
would only occupy fifteen columns,
which at the bid he had made would
only amount to $645. The Times bid
wm therefore the lowest. He insisted
that his bid at $43 per column would
make the lowest cost.
Mr. F. G. Teed said that as the con
tract had been awarded he had given the
copy to the Tribune according to instruc

him that the bid of the Tribune was the
lowest. He asked that the contract be
handed to the Mayor to see whether he
would sign it.
Mayor Workman said that he thought
that the Times should have the contract,
it having, to his mind, bid the lowest.
He ti erefore refused to sign it.
Mr, Cohn moved that the communica
tion of the Mayor be received and filed
and that the Clerk be instructed to Bign
the contract with the Tribune Publishing
Company. The motion was lost by a
vote of 7 to 4.
Mr. Sinsabaugh, Mr. Humphreys, "ur.
Bosbyshell and Mr. Book voted against
the proposition and spoke in favor of the
Mr. Lovell and Mr. Cohn thought the
Tribune's bid showed on its face that it
was the lowest.
Mr. Sinsabaugh moved that the con
tract be awarded to the Times. The vote
stood the same as before.
Mr. Cohn moved that the Tt ibune be
awarded the contract and the Mayor be
requested to sign the contract. Carried
unanimously, Mr. Sinsabaugh explaining
I that if he had more time he would fight
the award of the contract.
The matter of electric lights was then
brought up again and Mr. Collins moved
that the whole report of the Committee
be adopted. Mr. Lovell moved that the
matter be deferred for a week. Carried.
The report of the Board of Public
Works as published in yesterday's Her
ald was adopted.
Mayor Workman reported that he had
signed the contract with the Tribune for
printing the Charter.
Mr. Cohn moved that the Street Super
intendent be instructed to see that all
contractors under the Vrooman act per
form their work according to law. Car
The Street Superintendent reported
that the valve of the hydrant on the
Mission Road had been broken.
Mr. Collins said that he thought that
the hydrant should be taken out so that
the citizens would be supplied water.
He said he did not approve of the action
of Mr. Hazard in the matter, but be
thought that the citizens should be
looked out for.
Mr. Book moved that the matter be
referred to a special committee.
Mr. Sinsabaugh said he was in favor of
taking away the police force and sus
pending sprinkling for a time. He was
not in favor of relinquishing any rights
that the city might have, but he thought
the citizens should have water.
Mr. Bosbyshell said he was in favor of
the city maintaining its rights, but he
was willing to suspend sprinkling for a

Assigned to tUe Insane Asylum by
Carrie Petchner, the daughter of Frank
Petchner, of Riverside, was taken before
Judge Gardiner yesterday afternoon and
examined for insanity. Carrie is the
young woman who was confined at the
Girls' Home, and who waylaid passers
by with letters describing her wrongs.
After a long examination, lasting about
two hours, before several physicians, she
was judged insane by the Court and com
mitted to Stockton. The girl complained
tbat she had been unjustly held at the
Girls' Home by Mrs. Watson, and a por
tion of a letter from her was published in
the Herald some time since. The facts
in the case were that the girl was sent
here some time ago, having been judged
insane by her physician in Riverside.
Mrs. Watson, believing at first that she
might recover without being sent to
Stockton, waited for some time before
bringing her before the Court. The form of
the young woman's insanity is a very
common one. She believes that she is be
ing constantly pursued by detectives, and
that her step-mother is trying to take ad
vantage of her. She is also afllcted with
a violent furor scribendi and writes inter
minable articles for imaginary papers.
She will be taken north at noon to-day.

Sentenced for Eight Years.
The case of Frank Fray, convicted on
a charge of arson, came up for sentence
in Judge Cheney's court, Department No.
1, yesterday morning. His attorney
made a motion for a new trial but it was
denied. He was sentenced by the court
to eight years confinement in the peni
tentiary at Folsom. He took the decree
calmly only remarking about it that seven
years was all he had expected. The
full extent of the law for arson in the
second degree is ten years. This dis
poses for a considerable time of a char
acter well known through the southern
country. He will be taken north to-day.
