LITTLE GIRL IN FEAR
OF HER DEAF PARENTS
Judge Willis Warns Mute Couple
Not to Punish Their Child
Excitement without noise prevailed
yesterday before Judge Wilbur, sit
ting in the juvenile department of the
•superior court, where nearly all of the
deaf mutes in the city and some out
of it were in attendance at the trial of
Robert and Minnie Livingstone of Ea
gle Rock valley, who were charged
with cruelty to their children.
Had a word been spoken except by
i the judges, the lawyers and the in
terpreter— one who could trans
late the hand language into English
was indispensable—one might have
thought that the voluble Gallic and
Latin people were in a session of some
kind, for hands were waved in air
from every section of the courtroom
and fingers gesticulated wildly.
Mr. Livingstone is a deafmute ana
Mrs. Livingstone is stone deaf. It is
asserted that they punished their chil
dren altogether too severely, as they
were unable to hear the little ones'
? cries and therefore . could not under
stand when too much physical agony
had been inflicted for some slight
The children are a girl 8 years old
and a boy 5 years old. Both can speak
and hear as well as any children of
their years. The parents are anxious
that both shall be as well educated as
possible, and as the girl Is of school
■ age want her to be in regular attend
' One day last week she remained
away from school and went to the
home of a neighbor, saying that she
was afraid to go home for fear her
parents would whip her. The neigh
bors took the matter up with the hu
mane officers, who caused the parents'
arrest on the charge of cruelty to chil
Mr. and Mrs. Livingstone engaged
■Will D. Gould to defend them, with
the result that they told their troubles
to Judge Wilbur and promised to
obey the court's injunction to be more
lenient with their offspring and more
careful in punishing them. The
:: mother was ordered to report once a
week to the probation officers in com
pany with the little girl until further
■order of the court. .■- ■■ >.

EDITOR WANTS $50,000 FOR
BEING CALLED 'SEWER RAT'
Claims Wilmington Paper Termed
Him 'Cheap Little Squirt'
"The Squealing of a Rat" is the
heading of an article alleged to have
been published in the Wilmington
Journal, October 15, with the result
that W. A. Rennie, editor and pro
prietor of the Venice Daily Vanguard,
Justice of the peace of Ballona town
ship and acting recorder of Ocean
Park, yesterday filed in the superior
court a suit for damages of $50,000 for
averred libel, the action being directed
against Raymond Wayman, editor and
proprietor of the Wilmington publica
According to the article, which is
copied in alleged entirety in the com
plaint, Rennie asserted in it that an
effort was being made to create the
Impression that the Journal was out
of sympathy with the troubles of the
families of the.victims of the disaster
to the Los Anglles Times.
If the article is quoted correctly, the
Journal called Rennie a "cheap little
squirt," who "stole editorials," a
"lovely ass" and a "long-tailed sewer
rat," besides other things which do
not look well in print.
Rennie thinks that not less than JM),
--000 will satisfy him for the alleged
application to him of such epithets.

COUNCIL SIDESTEPS LAW
TO SUCCOR NEEDY WIDOW
The council yesterday stepped over the
law In order to do a charitable act. It
awarded Mr< Ueorge Merrill fiot front
the city's charity fund.
Mrs. Merrill's husband was killed sev
eral months ago by the raving of a
gravel pit In which he wan working for
the city. He left k widow and several
children in destitute circumstances. The
illy attorney held that the city was In
no way to blame for the accident and
liinl it could do nothing legally for re
lief. The finance committee concluded
to do something despite that fact, and
appropriated the $204.
This amount will just abont pay the
funeral expenses and the rent and gro
cery hill" are pressing Mrs. Merrill hard.
HEARING OF HOWARD GREEN
IS SET FOR OCTOBER 20
Will Fight for Attorney's Freedom
in Superior Court
Howard Green, charged with slaying
in this city, September 20, Thomas D.
Skidmore, a college professor of Rio
Grande, Tex., will have a preliminary
examination before Police Judge War
ren Williams in the University police
court Thursday morning at 10 o'clock.
The shooting occurred at Green's
house at 2687 Dalton avenue, where
Skidmore went in response to a tele
phone call from Green's wife, whom
he had known since childhood. She is
believed to have been the cause of the
shooting, according to the police.
Green formerly lived in Battle Creek,
Mich., where he was prominent in re
ligious and fraternal circles. He was
an active member of the bar associa
tion of that city, and is said to have
owned considerable property there at
one time. He came to Los Angeles a
year ago and opened a law office here.
It is likely that attorneys for Green
will not make a strong right for his
freedom at the preliminary hearing, but
will wait until the case is called in the
superior court. It is understood that
they will attempt to prove that Green
shot Skidmore under justifiable cir

Water company, which is fighting the
city for higher rates than those estab

weeks. The case will be continued to

RETAIN OIL INSPECTOR
BLACKMAR IN POSITION
Council Resists Efforts of Supply
Committee to Abolish De
partment of City
Efforts of the supply committee to
abolish the department of oil inspec
tion atid legislate C. A. Blackmar, oil \
Inspector, out of office, were not sue- |
cessful when the matter was presented
to the council yesterday. The matter
was referred back to the supply com
mittee for a more satisfactory adjust
The committee had recommended the
abolishment of the department of oil
inspection and placing the duties of j
the oil Inspector under the city engl- i
neer. A laboratory for the inspection
of asphalt is maintained in the engi
neer's department, and the board of |
public works was of the opinion that
with one more man all the oil inspec
tion could be done in this one labor
atory, doing away with one office force
and saving the city more than $300 a
But when it came to a thorough in
vestigation before, the council it de
veloped that while the engineering de
partment was ready to assume the in
spection of the oil purchased by the
city, it was not prepared to take over
the inspection of oil wells, the refilling
of wells, construction of pipe lines,
protection from gasoline and the many
other things the department of oil in
spection does, in its police powers, be
sides the mere inspection of oil.
There Is every indication that the
department of oil inspection will not |
be abolished and placed under the city
engineer, but that, on the other hand, I
the work done by the engineer along
this line will be placed under the de
partment of oil inspection.
ORDERS ARE ISSUED FOR
CITY HALL ANNEX PLANS
Instructions to the building inspector
to draw plans and specifications for
the city hall annex were issued by the
city council yesterday by a vote of
six to three. Stewart, Washburn and
Gregory opposed it because of several
features that had not been settled.
The city attorney has ruled that the
Copp building, north of the city hall
lot, where it is proposed to build the
annex, is ten inches over the city's
property and that the city can use the
wall as a party wall to that, extent.
If J. J. Buckus, building inspector,
finds it convenient to use this wall he
is instructed to do so, although Coun
cilman Whiffen, chairman of the build
ing committee, expects the city hall
will be enjoined as soon as it attempts
to do so.
NEW PLAN OFFERED TO
SIMPLIFY CITY ACCOUNTS
Charter amendments that will pro
vide a simpler accounting system arc
recommended in a report made yes
terday by a special committee of ox
perts appointed by the council. The
committee is composed of city ac
countants and accountants in the
aqueduct service. ..
The changes will eliminate a number
of the countersignatures now required
1n the cumbersome method of checks
and balances now in use.
The report was referred to the sup
ply, finance and legislation commit
tees in conjunction with the city at
torney, the city auditor and the city
treasurer. These officials are to sug
gest such changes as seem advisable to
suit their departments.

by the council a week ago was amend

COUNCIL SUSTAINS VETO
OF ALVARADO BOULEVARD
The mayor's veto of the Alvarado
street boulevard ordinance was sus-
Uiiiv 1 by the council yesterday, and
the city attorney wa-i instructed to
draw a new ordinance to boulevard
Alvarado street, prohibiting the con
struction of street car tracks and oil
pipe lines, but permitting heavy traffic
on the street.
This ordinance will be in line with
the suggestions of the mayor con
tained In his veto message. The mayor
does not oppose the plan to keep
street cars off Alvarado street, but he
does object to throwing the traffic
from Alvarado to some other street
that would have to bear it all.

MAYOR RETURNS ENGINEER
ORDINANCE TO COMMITTEE
Back to the legislation committee
goes the ordinance hastily passed by
the council two weeks ago providing
that unlicensed stationary engineers
could be employed in times of neces
The ordinance was vetoed by the
mayor because the "necessity" men
tioned in the ordinance was left to the
discretion of the person hiring the
engineers, and the mayor believed
greater safeguards should be thrown
about such an important position.

CITY APPROVES GARBAGE
STATION ON COVINA LINE
With great glee the council yester
day hastened to approve the garbage
loading station selected by Charles
Alexander, the garbage contractor.
This station is on the Covlna line,
just outside the city limits.
As it is outside the city limits the
council can no longer be bothered by
irate residents who disilike the smell
of garbage around th• ■ir homes. The
public welfare committee reported to
the council yesterday that the location
selected by Mr. Alexander was as good
as could be chosen, as there are few
houses in the neighborhood.

TO PHYSICIAN OF FRESNO
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 18.—On the
ground that no constitutional question
had been .raised in the petition for a

ON CROSS-TOWN CAR LINE
Property owners living on Alvarado, Hoover and Jef

mit a car line to be built on their respective gtreets.
There is sure to be a cross-town electric street railway
built in the south part of the city.
Vernon Avenue is the logical street for a cross-town
railway and the residents of Vernon Avenue want it there.
This line must be built, because it will tap all of the north
and south street railway lines and furnish transportation
direct to Agricultural Park and the new $630,000.00
