The Arguments on All Sldea.
The Judgo Delivers aa
The necessity tor a Bpeedy adjustment
of the county treasurer muddle was
j realized by all parties concerned after
the institution ot suit by Mr. T. J.
Fleming, appointee, to be put into pos
session of the office.
tt view ol the dailre to have a decis
ion aa to who ie treasurer ap soon na
possible, Judge Shaw agreed to a hear
ing late yesterday altornoon.
It, oonaiated of argumsnta by different
counael, and Judge Shaw settled tbe
matter without taking it under advise
ment, deciding tbat Mr. Fleming is
The facts in the owe were few and
easily stated. Treasurer J. De Barth
| Shorn left the etate for tho east In July
to undergo treatment in Philadelphia.
Ho had a 80-dav'a leave of absence,
which was extended to 60 daya. This
expired and fie supervisors appointed
TiK'map J. Fleming treaaurer to till the
TAcancy eauaed by Mr. Shorb'a abaeuce.
He lited his bond, which was approved,
and he qualified. Assistant Treasurer
Tiernan and tbe various deputies in
banks holding county money re
fused to turn over the booke, records
and money, on the ground that the ap
pointment waa not legal, and Mr. Flem
ing brought the proceedings indicated.
The principal contention of Mr. Tier
nan and the othera waa that the office
should have been judicially declarod
vacant by a court proceeding and that
the law wae not eelf acting.
The answer by tbe defendants waa
filed before the hearing waa begun. It
waa quite voluminous and was prepared
by George H. Smith who repreaented
the defendants. District Attorney Dil
lon represented the attorney general,
Messrs. Mi-Lac hi in and York. Mr.
Tiernan and Jndge W. P. Gardiner, the
clearing house, members of which were
In the answer the defendants denied
. that Treasurer Shorb remained absent
from the etate without tbe consent of
the legislature or the board of super
visors from Jnly 14th to September 13th,
but during that time wbb absent with
tbe consent of the supervisors, in pur
suance of law enacted* by the legisla
They denied that on the 13th of Sep
tember the office of county treasurer bo
came vacant until tbe appointment of
T.J.Fleming. They admitted that on
that date and ever since Mr. Shorb has
been absent from the state, and without
leave of the supervisors and legislature.
Tbe defendants further admitted that
the supervisors made tbe order, bnt de
nied tbat they appointed Mr. Fleming
in n legal manner, or that he is daly ap
pointed and qualified.
Tbey admitted the absence, of Mr.
Bborb, bnt eaid that he wae compelled
to leave the state by reason of dan
gerous and aerious illness, In order to be
treated by competent physicians in
Philadelphia; that at the time of hie
absence he hoped to be able to return
within 30 days, bnt was obliged to ob
tain an extension to 60 days, and cannot
yet make tbe journey home. They said
that the duties of the office have been
well performed by Mr. Tiernan, deputy
treasurer, and the other deputies as
subordinate deputies, and no loss has
occurred to the county by reason of Mr.
In support of the position taken by
the defendants, Mr. Smith made a brief
argument to the court. He quoted tbo
sections ol the political code which
prescribes the times when an office be
comes vacant, and that where an office be
comes vacant after the absence of the
officer from the state for more than 00
days without permiasion of the legisla-
He eaid tbat thia should not be con
strued to mean absence without an un
lawful intent. He held that the legisla
ture did not mean to deprive an officer
ot bis office for an innocent act. He did
not think it was possible that the legis
lature intended to deprive the state of its
option to say when ench an absence
created a vacancy. Such an act might
Work a forfeiture bnt not a vacancy. He
did not consider that tbe legislature in
tended to make this provision self-acting.
He referred to cases iv which it would
operate as a haidahip to the officer, as
in a case where an accident had hap
pened alter an officer left tbe state
which prevented his return within the
At the close of Mr. Smith's argument
Mr. York briefly presented hia viewa in
opposition. He contended that the pro
ceeding waa not a criminal one bat
civil, and the court whb not passing
upon the wisdom of tbe legislature but
upon tbe proper construction of tbe act.
He urged that tbe plain intent of the act
waa to cover just such a caae as this
and provide for just such a contingency.
He claimed that the law clearly de
clared tbe office of county treasurer
Vacant and that the appointment was
a every respect legal.
Jndge Gardiner, representing the
clearing bouee, stated tbat it was the
desire of all parties to set any'doubte at
3 sat, and he thought the action as to Mr.
Ihorb should be dismissed, as no process
could be served on him, and there
Efhould be no question in caae of a judg
ment. This was agreed to.
7 Judge Shaw then announced his de
cision orally, He held that the act
(dearly indicated what it meant, and
that in this case it declared the office
Vacant. The law waa framed for the
public good and not for any individual,
lie did not consider that any judicial
proceeding was neceasary to declare the
office vacant and overruled the demur-
Mr to tbe complaint. Right to amend
the answer being waived, he gave judg
ment for plaintiff, directing that tbe
deputy treasurers torn over the books,
records and money, and that Treasurer

THE GREAT EASTERN SECTION.
The Sea End of the Sewer to
Be J?ut in Place.
An Interesting- Engineering Act to
Be Pei formed Today.
The Die Section ot Pipe to lie Placed
tn Position This Mori,lug.
The Sewer Nearlug
This morning at 9 o'clock tbe great
cast iron section of the outfall aewer
will be pulled 600 feet into tbe Pacific
ocean. If will mark tbe near approach
of the completion of one of tbe greatest
sewer systems in tbe world.
The section of pipe ia 1200 feet long,
and is bolted and flanged together. The
iron section extends, or will extend,
from the month of the last tunnel into
tho ocean. It will reet on tbe bottom.
Soundings have been taken to a dis
tance of 750 feet into the ocean where
the great pipe will extend. At thia dis
tance the depth is 20 feet, while at 600
feet, the termination of the aewer, the
depth ia 18 feet.
A rather novel proceednre will be em
ployed to get the pipe into the water.
The aection of the aewer ie placed npon
rollers, but despite thia fact and the
fact that tbe alope is 60 feet or more,
the weight of it ia bo great that it will
require great force to extend it out to
the desired distance.
A tug from Rjdondo is at the ecene
ready to pull the pino out into old ocean.
Great wire ropes will be attached to tbe
long iron pipe. Then the tug wili be
gin its work, and it ia c xpected the
pipe will he run into the wate- without
any trouble. As tbe slope of the ocean
bed from tide water mark to the end
oi tbe pipe is but 600 feet and the fall
18 feet, it ie not likely that there will
be any complicationa arise to binder the
placing of the pipe. It is a heavy, grad
ual slope. It bas, of course, been de
cided that the force of tbe sewage which
wi.l have a fall of 60feet, will force itself
through against tbe 600 feet of water
that will naturally come up in the pipe.
The ''launching" of the big iron pipe
will be witnessed by a large number of
engineers of the city, city Engineer
Dockweiler and the engineers of hia
office, consisting of Messrs. Keen, Baa

Their Position Under the Geary Law
After the meeting of the Prison Di
rectors at San* Q lentin and tbe recom
mendation that "lifer" Quong Ah Wong
be released on account of' his failing
health, an interesting point was raised
says the San Francisco Chronicle. If
tbe pardon is granted, as it probably
will be, the fact will at once be brought
up that this miserable, broken-down
Chinese is not registered. Director Sonn
tag mentioned the fact and both he and
J. H. Neff stated their inability to guess
what would be done with the unfortunate
under the Geary act. This also suggest
ed the fact that at Ban Quentin and
Folsom there are in ail 175 Chinese, not
one of whom baa been registered. Ac
these men serve out their tevms they
will be released and the question is can
they be deported ?
Thomas D. Rlodan, tbe attorney, is,
by reason of his practice among the
Chinese, particularly well Informed on
the Geary act. He waa seen yesterday
and, when the proposition was laid be
fore him said:
"The Chinese Consulate, tbe Mer
chants' Club and the Six Companies
would be only too glad if the law required
immediate deportation of Chineee felons
after they had served their terms. Un
fortunately there is a clause in the law
which excuses their not being registered.
After reciting the fact that all Chinese
must be provided with certificitea with
in a year alter the passage oi the act (May
5, 1892), the section proceeds to slate that
a Chinese must be deported by order of
a Judge, unless he shall establish clearly
to the satisfaction of said Judge that by
reason of accident, eickneea or other un
avoidable cause he haa been unable to
procure his certificate, etc., and that he
waa a reaident of the United States at
the time of tbe passage of thia aot. Tbat
clearly covers tbe case of Chineee felons,

A Roseate Picture ot Future Financial
For several months past it has been
rnmored that a large amount of eastern
capital would be invested in various en
terprises in thia section.
It has developed within the last few
days that the half had not been told
and the amount of money it seems al
most too large to be true.
There is about to be organized, under
the laws of the state, an investment
company composed entirely of eastern
people and to have a capital of from
$8,000,000 to $10,000,000. Thero are five
gentlemen who are the principal organ
izers and back of them are about 50 of
the most prominent capitalists of the
east. The stock has all been sub
scribed and 50 per cent will be paid in
immediately. The articles of incorpora
tion are in the hands of come prominent
local attorneys and will be completed in
about two weekß.
One of the organizers ia in the city
and was asked about the intentions of
hie company. "It ia formed," he said
' for the purpose of developing water for
irrigation purposes, motive power and
other uses, to construct reservoirs, ca
nals, ditches and other means of carry
ing water to the point of distribution;
to build hotels and other buildings, to
buy, sell and improve lands and to set
aa a medium through which capital can
be invested in California and more par
ticularly Southern California. Its spe
cific object at first iB to build a very
large hotel which has been estimated to
cost $1,000,000. Boyle Heights has been
thoroughly investigated as a location for
tiiat purpose, the weateru bills in the
vicinity of Weatlake park, and particu
larly the Belmont grounds have also
been looked over.
These large improvement and invest
ments will depend largely upon the
public spirit of Los Angeles, for eastern
capital if now largely in the hands of
men who make very few gratuitous gifts
and it is well known that large hotels aa

When the thief who robbed Jamea F.
Byram & Co. of $200 worth of stamps in
their collection yesterday morning reads

rage and blush with shame for having
been guilty of such a bungling job. For
right in the same small show-case from
which hia booty was taken were two
trays of valuable coins, aggregating
more than did tbe stolen stamps.
Mr. Byram occupies room No. 10 in
tbe Workman building. South Spring
street, as an office. Yesterday morning
about 7:30 o'clock when he came to
open his place of business he was sur
prised to find the door already un'.qcked.
Mr. Byram went to the show case
where hia collections were kept and dis
covered that nearly all bis stamps
weregone. Tho coin trays had not been
touched, and a number of shells con
taining atamps also remained. Nothing
else in the room had been molested, a
large collection of stamps displayed in
the window escaping tbe burglars atten
It ia presumed that tho thief opened
the case and just grabbed, trusting to
luck to catch anything, or he would cer
tainly have taken the trays of coin, as
they were within an inch or two of the

waa a valuable- collection of Hawaiian
stamps. Several others were valued at

WORLD'S FAIR COMMISSION,
A Sati-factory showing Made at Yesler

The Loe Angeles County World's Fair
commission met yesterday. Present
Messrs. Forrester, Forman, Lnkens,
Klokke, Scott, Vawter and Willard.
Mr. Forman occupied the chair and Mr.
Willard acted as secretary.
It was decided to ship only two more
carloads of fruit to the world's fair, the
last shipment to be made by October
It was also agreed to bring back all
exhibits from Chicago that could not be
sold to advantage, and place them in
the chamber of commerce exhibit hall.
The secretary reported as to the con
dition of finances and presented esti
mates of future expenditure!?. It was
shown tbat tho county will probably
come out ahead with the world's fair
appropriations. The sum of $10,
--000 wbb apppropriated for the
exhibit, $0000 of this was
eet aside as a special contingency.
There now remains independent of this
contingency fund, the sum of $7000.
About $3000 or $4000 will cover the
expenses of the exhibit during the rest
of the fair, which will leave a clear sav

Tbe humiliation of Tom Hoed and bis
lieutenant, Burrows, of Michigan, when
they learned that the Democrats of the
houeo proposed to put an effectual qniet
us upon Republican filibustering against
tho reporting of the Tucker bill for tbe
repeal of all laws authorizing the pres
ence of the United States officials at
elections, was a pleasing eight to Demo
cratic eyes. Because the Democrats of
the bouse in the adoption of regular
rules had been extremely lenient to
wards the minority the Republicans as
sumed that no check would be pnt ou
their filibustering. They were given a
free rope for awhile because
there was not a quorum of Democrats
present, but as soon as a quorum of
Democrats was ou hand they were
effectually cquelched by an order re
ported from the committee on rules, and
the bill was reported to the boueo. This
order wae not the result of any assump
tion of power by a single individual, as
were the rulings of Tom Reed when he
was speaker; it was authorized by a
Democratic caucus, as such things al
ways should be. The Republicans are to
be allowed to name any reasonable
length ol time during which the debate
on this bill shall be carried on, but tbey
are not to be allowed to filibuster against
a vote upon it alter legitimate debate
has been exhausted.
The public tariff hearings were con
cluded this week, aud the Democrats on
the house ways and means committee
are now at work upon the new bill. Al
though the number of days were fewer
than were given by some of the other
committees, more time was given by*
tbe committee than was ever given be
fore ior public hearings. Chairman
Wiison, speaking of the preparation of
the new tariff bill, said: "The Demo
cratic members will work together.
Borne of the schedules will be prepared
by all of the Democrats together, while
others will be referred to'subcommittees
[or preparation, previous to being
revised by the full Democratic
membership of the committee,

Several times thia week the senate
has aroused public expectation by ap
pearing to be on the eve of the final
contest over the Voorhees repeal bill,
bnt the end is not yet. Senator Mills
of Texas, made one of the strongest
speeches of the week in favor of repeal;
Senator Voorhees made a characteristic
explanation of his position, in answer
to criticisms because he had not forced
a vote, calling the attention of the
country to tbo fact that it 19.simply im
possible to force a vote under the pres
ent rules of tho senate, rules which
have not been materially changed for
more than 80 years, and the
Republican senators, for and against
the bill, had a regular monkey and par
rot time among themselves. It is ex
pected that the attempt to reach a vote
by menus of a continuous session of the
senate will be made in a few days, (the
daily sittings have already been length
ened) and if that fails the bill will
either have to be abandoned or a com

Odd Fellows cemetery. The road will
be an elevated one, between Brooklyn
Heights and the western hills and then
a surface track the rest of the way. This
project, if carried out, would make the
heights on both sides of the city
boom, ond the beautiful lots in tbe
Mount Pleasant a.id Boyle Heights and
Brooklyn Heights tructs that have been
almost upsa'able heretofore would bo
brought into good demand.
Whether this is a part of or in any
manner connected with the project of a
tine hotel on the heights ia not known
at present. We hope to be able to find
out more about this important enter
prise soon so that we msy give such
facts ac the public ought to know.
