Immediate action on the proposition
to build a new city hall on a site to

New High streets, with a frontage of
182 feet on: Main; street, 158 on Re- a

Following is the petition as pre
* eented to the council:
"On behalf of a large number of
citizens, residents and property owners,
to the city of Los Angeles. I desire to
bring the following matter to your
attention and ask that you act thereon.
"Said citizens, Including the under
signed, who is acting for them in this
behalf, Intend to procure and convey
to the clty^of Los Angeles; upon con

Republic streets, fronting 182 ' feet on
Main street, 158 feet on Republic

and maintaining thereon a city hall
and such other buildings appurtenant
thereto as will enable said city to
house all its general offices and carry
on its general and clerical business
"Said property to be free from all
incumbrances and said conveyance to
be in the nature of a' gift to said 1 city,
conditioned upon accepting the same
by ordinance and agreeing to build
thereon a city hall to be used by said
city in place of the present, structure
situated on Broadway between Second
and Third streets, and that It will
commence the construction of said city

"If said,, city accepts said offer the
said property can be conveyed to It
within ninety days from this date." j
Present Hall Inadequate
Mr. Mesmer asked that action be
taken on the offer as soon as possible
as there were six options on the prop
erty, which ..would soon expire, and the
promoters did not cure to take out
others if there was no hope of the
offer being accepted!
"There is every need for a new
municipal building," said Mr. Mesmer.
"TJie conveniences in this building are
entirely inadequate to the needs of
this growing city and it has become
so crowded that it has been necessary
to rent rooms in other buildings for
the accommodutlon of the city officers.
"The rentals for these rooms, with
others that are contemplated, will cost

"This, proposition is J made, by men

proposition railroaded through this

Mr. Mesmer had no sooner taken his
seat than Councilman Hammon, who
represents the Second ward, a. district
that would be benefltted by the re
moval, moved that the offer be ac
cepted and was promptly seconded by
Councilman Heoly, representing the
Eighth ward, another district that
would be favorably affected.
Councilman Smith emphatically op
posed the proposition and gave as his
reasons' that the city was growing
away from the plaza and had been
branching out to the south for the last

"Less business is being transacted
In that part of the city than was done
thirty-six years ago," said Mr. Smith,
"and I believe that there Boon 'will be

"I notice that nearly everyone who
Is interested In offering the city the
building site owns property north of
First street and would be benefited
by building a new city hall In that

thing but a real estate scheme and I
know that others are preparing to
make the city similar propositions that
will be more to our advantage than the

The subject of his address was "Educa

; Prof. Butler spoke in the place of
President William R. Harper, who was
too ill to attend the session.
';The term 'self-made man* Is a mere
fallacy," Prof. Butler declared. "The
'-eelf-made' man's success is due only
to unusual ability. Efficient manhood
—the manhood that ought to be offered
to the world — no longer can be home
made. In this time of competition the
world is willing to • pay the highest
price for the efficient man just as for
articles of commercial use."

entire case has been referred to Spe

Carter has aged considerably, but l:e
