COLLEGE OF MEDICINE OPENS
Twenty.Flrst Annual Session Begins
With Elaborate Ceremonies — Plans
of Library Submitted
The twenty-first annual session of
the College of Medicine of the Univer
sity of California opened yesterday
morning. Dr. Walter Llndley, the
dean, addressed the students, outlining
the work to be accomplished by the
college. He said:
"A few years ago a student could
leave a farm and with little or almost
no preliminary education be admitted
to a medical college and graduate in a
few months. Today it is necessary for
the student to have a good, broad edu
cation, and he Is obliged to devote four
years of eight months each before
graduation and is then expected to give
at least one year to hospital work. He
is obliged by every state in the union
to pass a rigid examination by a state
board of examiners before he is li
censed to practice."
Dr. Granville MacGov\ in of the chair
of surgery made an address' stating the
difference between his college days in
the University of Pennsylvania and the
•work of the present.
Prof. Lyman D. Stookey. professor
of physiology and physiological chem
istry, made a short address. Dr. Stook
ey arrived Sunday from the Univer
sity of Strausburg.
Plans for the new college library do
nated by Dr. Walter Jarvis Barlow
were presented. The library building
■will be located across the street from
the colle«;e and will cost about $30,000.
TO CONSTRUCT SPUR TRACKS
Southern Pacific and Santa Fe Con.
tend for Jackson Street
The board of public works will to
day investigate the- matter of grant
ing- either the Santa Fe or Southern
Pacific railroad permission to build a
spur track on Jackson street.
A majority of the property owners on
Jackson street have signed a petition
risking that the privilege Jje granted
to the Santa Fe road.
In speaking of the proposed construc
tion one of the principal property own
ers on Jackson street said last night:
"Where the Santa Fe has construct
ed spur tracks heretofore property
values have increased from 60 to 100
per cent. On Banning and Commer
cial streets the Santa Fe built a spur
track. The construction on those
streets was opposed by 'a number of
property owners. Most of the men who
fought the Santa Fe there have since
sold their holdings for double their
The Southern Pacific, however, Is
making considerable headway •in the
campaign 'by its offer to buy. all lots
necessary to widen Jackson street to
ninety feet, grade and put it in perfect
condition and lay cement sidewalks
the entire length of the street. '
COUNCILMAN HEALY TRIES TO
Question of Disposing of Mendicants
Now Thronging Streets Comes Be
fore Legislative Committee.
Many Complaints Made
Councilman Healy would issue a li
cense to worthy beggars, allowing
them to ply their vocation on the
streets. He broached this suggestion
at a meeting of the legislative com
mittee yesterday when the question of
an ordinance to keep the begging crip
ples off the streets came up for con
"Let them go to the mayor or the
chief of police for a permit," suggest
ed Councilman Healy. "Their cases
could then be looked into and If it was
found that they were worthy of the
privilege a permit could be issued to
' This method might help to solve the
problem, but neither the mayor nor
the chief of police nor any other offi
cial has any legal power to issue such
a permit. This Is the opinion of As
sistant City Attorney Goudge, who ex
pressed himself in no uncertain terir.a
on this question yesterday afternoon.
"The ordinance prohibits begging or
the soliciting of alms on 'the streets
and no one has the privilege of grant
ing a permit to anyone for this purpose,
or otherwise authorizing it in any
manner," said Mr. Goudge yesterday.
Many Complaints Made
Complaints have been made to the
police commission about the large num
ber of cripples that squat on the side
walks and display their loathsome de
formities to the public In an appeal
for alms. As the tourist season ap
proaches these beggars become more
numerous and more objectionable un
til near the Christmas holidays it is
almost impossible to walk a block In
any part of the business district with
out hearing their piteous walls. Even
now there are hordes of these human
parasites on the streets and their num
ber is constantly increasing. Many of
them are criminals of the worst class,
say the police.
The police commission, last April,
asked the city council for an ordinance
that would keep the cripples oft the
street, claiming that the ordinance
now in force applied only to able
bodied men. It was afterward dis
covered that the ordinance applied to
cripples as well, but was not stringent
enough. When the problem reached
the hands of the city council it was
turned over to the legislative com
mittee for action. Acting on the advice
of members of the city council, the
city attorney's office prepared another
ordinance about two weeks ago, but
this has not yet been passed, although
there Is every likelihood that favorable
action will be taken at the next meet-
Ing of the council.
The legislative committee took no
action on the question yesterday other
than to refer it back to the police com
mission with a politely worded re
quest that the commission draw up Its
own ordinance and submit it to the
council. When the commission Is mad«
aware that such an ordinance has been
drawn it will doubtless recommend
that It be passed.

SUBMITTED TO REFEREE
CHARGES AGAINST ATTORNEY
MADE BY BANKRUPT
Former Proprietor of Lincoln Hotel
Claims He Sold Property for $8000
and That Purchaser Now Contends
Price Was but $6900
As a result of a recent disagreement
between W. D. Montgomery, a bank
rupt, and a number of his creditors
as to the value of the Lincoln hotel,
the claims of both parties were sub
mitted yesterday to Attorney Lynn
Helm, referee in bankruptcy, and dur
ing the dispute between the Interested
ci editors, charges were made against
Attorney William G. Cook.
Montgomery took advantage of the
bankrupt law several weeks ago. A
short time before he had opened nego
tiations with Mrs. Belle McWilliams
for the sale of the Lincoln, his only
remaining piece of property, so that
e.s many claims as possible might be
When the bankruptcy proceedings
were turned over to the Los Angeles
Credit Men's association for adjust
ment, Attorney Craig soon learned that
some doubt existed as to the real sale
price of the Lincoln hotel.
• Mrs. Belle McWilliams contended she
had paid $6900 for the hotel, while
Montgomery and a number of his
friends insisted that $8000 was the salt
price; $6900 of which had been cash
and the remainder In the form of a
deed to a South Hill street boarding
house which had been placed with one
of the local banks, pending the final
settlement of the deal.
Montgomery was summoned before
Referee Helm yesterday. He stated
that Attorney Cook, acting for Mrs.
McWllllama had destroyed the deed,
that Mrs. McWllllams might still re
tain her ownership of the South Hill
street lodging house.
Attorney Cook Indignantly denied the
allegation that he attempted to cheat
the creditors by holding back certain
assets for the benefit of his client.
Mrs. McWilliams then took the stand
In her own behalf and aserted that
the sale price of the Lincoln was $6900,
and that there had been no considera
tion as to a rooming house.
The case was continued for further
examination and argument. '
Montgomery first came into promi
nence several weeks ago when ha was
arraigned before Judge Wilbur in the
superior court on a charge of Insanity.
He was alleged to have threatened
violence to Miss .Mary Meister, who
was employed at the Lincoln hotel as
clerk. The evidence showed that Mont
gomery had adopted the young woman
years ago, but had been living with her
as man and wife for several years past.
The appearance of a new lover on the'
scene was alleged to have caused the
older man's Jealousy.
It was later alleged that a num
ber of interested parties were attempt
ing to send the old man to the Insane
asylum to get hold of his property.
Montgomery was discharged by the
Insanity commission and Immediately
filed his bankruptcy proceedings.

went to the police station a few days

is attempting to shield a man whom
she has met frequently in Los Angeles,
