Messrs. Earl, Barrett, Moriarty, Cohn,
Hanley, Wilson, Threlkeld, McNally,
Sinsabaugb, Shafer and Ford present.
Mayor Bryson returned, without his
signature, the resolution of intention to
improve Railroad avenue on the ground
that a protest had been filed with him.
On motion of Captain Barrett the veto
of the Mayor was sustained.
The question in relation to the estab
lishment of water rates came up and
Captain Barrett moved that no action be
taken in tbe matter and that the rates be
allowed to remain as they were last year.
He said that the law provided that the
rates should be fixed in February and
the lime had passed when any change
cvnld be made. .
On motion ef Mr. McNally the Mayor's
message, vetoing the ordinance fixing
the rates passed in February, was sus
The City Attorney advised that an
ordinance fixing the rates should be

ordinance adopted in February. He
rendered the following opinion in the
"I have made a careful examination ot
the question of the right of the City
Council to establish water rates and fix
the amount of compensation for water to
be purchased to any person, company or
corporation for domestic and private pur
poses, and for other uses in the city of
Los Angeles, and would respectfully re
port : Ist. That there is no question but
what the Council has that power as to all
persons and corporations other than the
Los Angeles City Water Company, pro
vided the rate is not an unreasonable
one. 2d. The Los Angeles City Water
Company is the successor in interest of
all the right acquired by John S. Giffin,
Prudent Beaudry and Solomon Lazard,
under a contract entered into with the
city of Lo3 Angeles, on the 20th day of
Jaly, 1868, in which it was provided that
the Mayor and Common Council of said
city should have the right to regulate the
water rate to be charged by said parties,
provided that they should not so reduce
said water rates or fix the price thereof,
to be less than the prices then charged.
The question I understand you now de
sire an opinion upon is whether you have
the right to fix the water rate lower than
the price then charged. The authorities
are not clear upon this proposition, and
a great deal can be said on both sides of
the question. lam of the opinion, how
ever, that you have that right, and that
you may fix the rates for water at a lower
rate than that charged by said company
on July 20th, IS6S, provided that the
rate so fixed shall be a reasonable one,
in view of the necessities of the public
and the requirements of the Water Com

The Hoff Family.
The two younger brothers of the well
known petit larcenist, Clara Hoff, Peter
and Herman, aged 8 and 11 years, were
brought before Justice Austin yesterday
to be looked after as wandering minors.
This is an unfortunate family. The
father is a good workman, said to bo
honest and industrious, but addicted to
drink. He and his wife separated by
reason, he alleges, of her misconduct,
and the children wore neglected. Clara
seemed to have the natural instinct of a
criminal and began to steal like a pro
fessional at a very early age. She was
sent to the Boys aud Girls' Aid Society,
but escapsd and was put in Mrs. Wat
son's care, but managed to get into all
kinds of mischief. At last she was reg
ularly convicted of a crime and was sent
to the county jail, where she now is.
These two boys have been on the street
a good part of the time since their home
was broken up, and the elder, Herman,
was frequently brought into the station
as a vagrantj. The Court, after hearing
the evidence' of the Captain of Police,
decided that they were in need of the
guardianship of the law. Disposition
will be made of them to-day.
