The Interminable Paving Qoe»tlon.
Pasadena, Sept. I.—Tho paving goes-
Hon continue* to "bob np serenely,"
and apparently has no idea of being eat
upon. It was thought that when the
contract w«i awarded yesterday to Mr.
Fairchlld to do the work at 29 2 5 cents
per square foot tbat this settled the
question of wbo was to put down the
? lavement. It seems, however, that
here are prospects of a merry war be
tween tbe paving companies as to wbo
shall capture the work in spite ol the
fact tbat the contract has been let to tbe
Tbe way this condition of affairs comes
about is a section in the V woman act,
under which this work is being done,
which reads as follows:
"The owners of three-fourths oi tbe
frontage of lots and lands upon the street
whereon the work is to be done or their
agents, and who shall make oath that
they are such owners or agents shall not
be required to present sealed proposals
or bids, but may within 10 days after the
posting and publication of said notice of
said award elect to take said work and
enter into a written contract to do tbe
whole work at the price at which the
lame has been awarded." This action
must be taken within 10 days after the
posting of the notice of award, and
work must be commenced within 15
"Taking advantage of this section, one
of tbe unsuccessful bidders for tbe pav
ing work is endeavoring to secure pri
vate contracts from three-fourths of the
rontage on Colorado street, by offering
to do the work for 00 cents per square
foot, dealing with tbe owners direct.
Should they succeed in getting the
necessary three-fourths, a petition will
be presented to the council on Monday
next asking that tbe contract be turned
over to the property owners.
It seems doubtful, however, whether
this can be done, as it is understood tbe
Fairchild company is willing to make
reductions for cash and will probably be
willing to come down to tbe 60 cent
notch. Provided the company which
bow»heioJ, ! li : wo'ilU-9Vrtnu^« l ß i o n, V r work as
them to do it, under the direction oi"nie
city officers, as a better job would un
doubtedly be obtained.
Mr. Fairchild is an old band at the
paving business and bas put down some
of tbe best streets in Los Angeles, in
cluding Commercial, which is conceded
to be tbe best paved and tbe best wear
ing street in tbe city.

that there was but little use granting it
to them. There were also certain pro
visions whloh were included in the fran

objected, and no decision has ever been

that a $10,000 bond be put up to insnre

Ihe Swimming Contest*—Polo Baoes.
Santa Monica. Sept. I.—The chief item
of interest in converaatlon on North
Beach ia the late Bwimming contest for
the gold medal, liberally given by the
North Beach bath bouee management,
which was won by Arthur Splittstoesser,
Whose best time was 16 minutes, the
distance being half a mile. The new
contest commences Sunday, the distance
being 200 yards, and the conditions be
ing that the prize, which is a fine bath
ing suit, one of Pfester's best, made to
tbe order of the winner, Who will have
to win three beats before the prize is
his. The distance being shorter will
draw more entries into the list, make
the pace a swifter one, and thus more
exciting to the witnesses. It will not be
one calling forth endurance so much as
the late one, in which Mr. Splittstoesser
displayed that quality to an eminent
degree, as well as hard work, but will be
one calling for speed pure and simple,

Excitement Over the Kmuon of an At
tack on the Chinese.
San Bernardino, Sept. I.— Rnmora
were rife on tbe streets last evening and
today that a mass meeting had been or
wae going to be heid somewhere in this
city to formulate a plan to expel the
Chinese from, the city. After diligent
inquiry by a Hebai.d representative he
found thatameeting was held last even
ing, but no definite plan had been de
cided upon as no person could be pre
vailed upon to act as leader. There are
glaree number wbo are willing to follow
recognized tmad. but juot ttLv, „in mi
this responsible position remains to be
seen. The sheriff's office has been kept
busy the past few days looking after the
Redlands trouble with the heathens,
but now that the question bas reached
this city tbey were compelled to stay up
till a late hour last night as a report was
circulated tbat an attack would be made
some time during the night. The
Chinese in this city barricaded their
doors last nigbt, and it is safe to say but
very few of them slept much. They are
all well armed and bloodshed is likely
to result should tbe mob attempt to ex
pel them. An officer in this city in
formed the Herald scribe of the plan
supposed to have been adopted at tbe
meeting last evening. He said tbat
tbey would wait till the attempt would
be made at Redlands. Should the citi
zens be successful there they would
make an attack in thia city. There are
over 20 Chinese in thia city, and a tight
ia looked for by the knowing once. The
gun stores here have sold a large amount
of fire arms and ammunition in the last
few days, the major portion being to the

THE RIVEK PROBLEMS.
County Turveyor Finley sayß it is pos
sible to pnt the Santa Ana river in
shape so as to prevent the destructive
overflows which annually occur. Among
otber things he aaye: "I believe any
work wbicb baa for its object anything
else than the ultimate straightening and
narrowing of the channel ia only tem
porary and almost useless. The great
advantage of having a thorough know
ledge of tbe river channel throughout
tbe valley and having it. carefully map
ped out, with every obstruction and im
provement accurately located, ia that
any so-called temporary work done can
be ao arranged tbat it will become per
manent. It can be put in with a defi
nite plan alwaye in view of eventually
having a completed work. Unless tbat
fiolicy ia pnraned we may stop a break
n a bank one year and the next stop
another break with a jetty that will
throw the water against the one of tbe
year Before and totally deatroy it."

wonder just how fast tbe machine will

Life Good For f in uicu.
Had the fire department been equipped
with apparatus for throwing ropes to
great heights or distances, such aa are
carried by all life saving stations, many
lives could have been saved from tbe
flames at tbe cold storage fire. Every
man who escaped alive did so by a flim
sy rope. With a proper gun or cannon
a ropo or numbers of them could have
been shot up over the tower and made
fast by the imprisoned men. The ropes
can be rendered noncombustible. No
pew or expensive machinery would be
required. At the life saving station at
Jackson park could have been found
huge guns with endless coils of lifeline
attached. The guns fire a heavy spear,
which carries tho lifeline out to wrecks,
helpless boats and drowning men. Twen
ty such lifelines could have been fired up
and over the burning tower. Every shot
of tho gun would have saved the life of
a brave fireman.
With the high buildings in the busi
ness center such apparatus would be
most valuable and could be carried on
every hose cart. Individuals imprisoned
in tbe tenth story, cut off from all es
capq, could be saved. A lance could be
Bhot into the window and tbe rope made
fast. Nothing would bo easier. If the
gun, tbe lance and the rope are good to
save lives at sea, why not uoe fireproof
ropes to save men from death by fire?—

Always carry an umbrella. If it rains,
there you are, don't you know, and if
the sun comes down and you are idiotic
enough to be out in it, protect what
head you have with intervening shade.
