Pasadena, July 12.—The council met
in adjourned session tbia afternoon to
consider tbe electric street railway
franchise. Judge Weed presided, Will
ooi, McQuilling and Clarke present.
Attorney MacLacblan, representing
tbe Consolidated Electric company of
Los Angeles, was present and went over
tbe ordinance with the council, section
by section, suggesting the changes asked
for by tbe company.
Previous to taking up the franchise
matter, specifications for a gutter on the
west side of Los Robles avenne between
Colorado street and Center were
The first change made in the electric
franchise was the cutting out of tbe pro
vision allowing the use of horse or mule
power, leaving tbe line to be operated
by cable or eleotricity.
A proviso granting the council tbe
right to require tbe road to be operated
by tbe beat and latest improved appli
ance!, was decidedly objected to by the
electric people, they claiming that it
would be difficult to float their bonde
with this condition in the franchise for
tbe reason that some fnture council
might demand changes that would bank
rapt them. Finally, after math discus
sion, it was decided to alter tbe section
by inserting "said power to be exercised
with regard to the vested rights of said
grantee and only in a reasonable man
According to the reading of the orig
inal franchise tbe railway company was
compelled to pave between all tracks.
This was modified to apply only to
streets whioh are paved.
A provision granting the city the
power to levy a license upon all cars in
use upon the lines was stricken out, it
being held that the ground was covered
by another eection.
Tbe same action was taken regarding
one section defining the manner in
which the road should be constructed
and operated upon the same grounds,
and in its place a clause inserted grant
ing the city the power to be exercised in
a manner not inconsistant with the
vested rights of tbe corporation.
The last section taken up was the
most important one, regulating rates,
and it thought that there would be some
contentation over them aa Mr. McLach
lan asked at Monday's meeting that tbe
one way rate be increased from 15 to 20
cents. However, this request was with
drawn and the 15 cent one way rate will
stand. The 25 cent round trip was cut
out tbe street car company declining to
make any round trip rate. Outside the
city a 5 cent fare will prevail with half
rate to school children.
The last two sections, relating to the
bond and time for tbe completion of tbe
road, were not taken up, but will be
considered at Monday's meeting. It ia
understood that the company asks that
tbe bond be reduced to $1000 aud tbe
time extended from one to two years.

Why is it that people In general are so prone
to disregard loss of strength, clearly percepti

broken real? Incomprehensible but true. Sheer
carelessness, an overweening confidence In
the power of nature to recuperate—these are
suggestible reasons. One of the most observa

ture Is waning strength. An efficient tonic Is
the best safeguard against impending peril.

rooms on the present school house for

claiming that the district can very well
get along without it, and the tact that
each scholar cost $110 was quite enough
of tbe luxury. Those in favor say
that a high school Is a necessity and

The first number on the programme
was, A Royal Princess, given in costume

it ia a classic story, and one of Mrs. Lud

The final was a epaikling comedietta
entitled, A Happy Pair, in which the
love, sentiment, disagreement and de
votion of Mr. and Mrs. Honeyton were
portrayed by Mrs. Ludlam and Mr. B.
D. Fargo in a very amusing manner.
Tbe programme throughout was well
rendered, and thoroughly enjoyed by
the audience, who repeatedly recalled
tbe actors, and in every way showed
their appreciation of the charming man
ner in which it was rendered.
The citizens are somewhat exercised
over an ordinance recently passed by
the city council prohibiting tbe feeding
of stock inside tbe city limits. Under
this ordinance people are compelled to
keep their horses, cows and chickens
inside of an inclosed building, and no
matter how much land they own they
cannot feed stock upon it. This works
a great hardship on them and they do
not propose to submit to it. Tbey think
the council has overstepped tbeir bounds
in this matter as a man can do as be
pleases on bis own land unless he some
times makes a nuisance.

The Bnlclde of Robert T. White — Notes
San Bernardino, July 12.—The dead
body of Robert T. White, one oi the
best known citizens of this city, was
found this morning dead in bed at his
residence on £ street, near Mill. The
body was discovered by two neighbors.
A bullet hole through bis bead clearly
demonstrated tbe cause of his death,
while on the floor at his feet lay an old
army cap and ball pistol, the instru
ment with which the deed was commit
ted. He had not been eeen for several
days, and two women in the neighbor
hood having a message for him, called
at tbe bonce at 8 ;30 o'clock this morn
ing. Tbere wae no sign of life about
tbe house. They looked in a window of
tbe apartment which White occupied
and were horrified to find tbey after
ward learned was the lifeless form of
that gentleman stretched across tbe
bed. A lamp was burning in the room,
casting a sickly glare in the daylight.
Tbe ladies at once gave the alarm, and
M. P. Bollinger, tbe janitor of the
court house, and another man proceed
ed to tbe house and broke In the dooi.
A glance showed that White had been
dead some time. An ugly bullet wound
was in the right side of tbe head
near tbe temple, the ball had emerged
at the left aide near the
tbe hair. From the position of the
body it was evidently a case of suicide.
Tbere is but little doubt that the cbubb
which led to the rash act was melan
choly caused by the death of his wife,
to whom he was devotedly attached.
He bad been despondent at intervals,
and daring the past few months had
been heard to express the opinion that
life wae not worth living. Judging from
a note left behind, ill health bad also
influenced him. Tbere is no trouble in
fixing the time when the fatal shot was
fired. A number of people in the neigh
borhood say they heard tbe shots about
10 o'clock Monday evening. No atten
tion wae paid to tbe matter at tbe time,
but since tbe discovery of the body tbe
connection between tbe two is clearly
established. Coroner Thompson being
absent from tbe city, Justice Felter was
notified of tbe case and acted as coroner.
A jury was snmmoned and tbe remains
were viewed at the scene of tbe tragedy,
after which they were removed to Bar
