Property-Owners and the
I The West-Enders Want to Get
Into the Town.
A Difference of Opinion Prevails as
to the Proper Cut.
Lo, the Poor Indian—The Untutored
Hind Desires a School—Charged
A meeting took place yesterday after
noon at the rooms of the Chamber of
Commerce, called by the committee on
parks and boulevards, for the purpose of
considering some way of obtaining bet
ter grades to the western part of the
Dr. J. P. Widney was chosen to act as
chairman and C. M. Wells as secretary.
Dr. Widney stated the object of the
meeting. He said: "The heaviest popu
lation of the city in the future will be to
the weet and south. Either an open
way must be cut through the hills to the
west, or else the city will grow only
south. A few years ago the valuable
property of the town was around the
Pico house. Now it is further south.
If First street is opened up, the ]
business center will be fixed where the
capital is now invested."
C. M. Wells said that he felt disap
pointed that so few people were present
of the property owners in the central and
northern part of the business section.
They did not seem to take any interest
in a movement which was profoundly
for their advantage. On Second Rtreet it
was propesed to go into a tunnel at
Ol've street, making no grade
iter than one foot in fcwenty-
The proposition on First
et ifl nearly the same. The tunnel
w aid Vegin at Olive and cou»e out at
Hope. But the object of the meeting
vas to ascertain to what extent the
i.eople in the business center could be
depended upon to assist in the movement.
City Engineer Eaton was called upon
and unrolled several diagrams of pro
files for First street. He gave the esti
mate© for various tunnels and cuts.
He explained why it was less expensive to
make a radical grade along Second street
thar along First.
■'. M. Hough said that although he
iv a member of the committee that
adopted the grade of one in ten, he
was in favor of going into the work on a
more extensive scale. He did not be
lieve that such a hummock as that on
Grand avenue could be maintained in a
large city. Every dollar that was paid
in should be planted to stay.
H. C. Witmer explained the plans and
work of the people of the western part
of the city. He said that they were
ready to combine on either First or
M. L. Wicks said that he had favored
a deeper cut than one in ten, but that
•was adopted as a compromise.
A. M. Ellsworth declared his belief
that no such grade as one in twenty-five
would ever go through unless some com
pany bought up the property and did
Jesse Yarnell said that the people of
the hills wanted to come down in the
center of the town to trade, but as the
grade was so badjthey would ultimately
trade with dealers on Pearl street as the
city grew out in a southerly direction.
O. O. Trantum stated that the value of
property was not increased by heavy
travel. The reason why retail trade was
going south was that a better class of
buildings were erected there. Mr.
Trantum made a long and very spirited
Dr. Bryant spoke favoring a traffic
grade on Third street. Major Bone
brake, John Kiefer and others followed.
L. N. Breed said that he thouglut the gen
eral sentiment of property-owners was
that something ought to be done, and
the proposed grade of one in ten was
better than inaction.
A. M. Hough offered a resolution to
the effect that it was the sense of the
meeting that the proposed grade of First
street was the most advantageous one
under the circumstances. After some
discussion the chair mled this out of
order on the -ground that the meeting
was not called for the purpose of taking
any such action.
The meeting finally adjourned without
taking action of any kind.
LO, THE POOR INDIAN.
The Untutored Mind Wants a
We have already alluded to the
shameful fact that for over seven years
there has been a community of about
300 Mojave Indians at The Needles, who
during that time have never received
the slightest care from the Government,
but have been left to shift for them
selves without evert an Occasional visit
from an Indian agent. The children of
these Indians are naturally bright, and
if the Government would establish a
school for them they would be greatly
benefited. It is almost seventy-five
miles to the reservation, but when the
Atlantic and Pacific railroad first reached
The Needles, these Indians moved with
their families there. The company
found them faithful and industrious and
of great use in certain kinds of work upon
the road. A paternal Government
ought not to have abandoned all its care
for these Indians, even if they had left
the reservation. The least it could have
done would have been to have provided
a school for their children. We have
just received the following letter from
the captain of this band, and it will be
seen by it that there is a strong desire
amongst this band of the Mojaves to
have the Government give them a
school. The letter reads as follows:
Needlks, Calif., March 30, 18S*0.
Vol. James J. Avert, Los Angeles:
Peak Sib —When you come here to
Needles, big chief of the editors, you
promised us to do something for my
people. We do not want to trouble you
too much, but We feel very glad when
you say you will try to get Mojaves a
big school here, and me tell my people,
and they very glad too. Now we all
wish you would do something for us
and get Washington to do something

We shall forward a copy of this letter
to Washington, and ask the Indian De
partment if the educational wants of

Tory results, and a school at The Needles
would accomplish equally satisfactory
results there. The Government cer
tainly owes something to this commun
ity of Mojaves, who have had the enter
prise, so rare amongst Indians, to strike
out for themselves and make their own
living. It is to their credit tiiat they
have done so. Had they Loafed around
the reservation and drawn their support
from the Government, perhaps they
would have been held iv higher esteem
by thd Indian authorities,
HE WA$ CANED,
A Complaint Charging an Attorney
A complaint was yesterday filed in the
Township Court by ('has. •Biandford
charging Sam Hamilton, an attorney,
with battery. Biandford, who is em
ployed at the American Bakery, corner
First and Main streets, alleges that
alwut 8 o'clock on Monday evening he
called at the residence of Mr. Hamilton,
on the corner of Ninth and Spring
streets, to collect a bill. c was ro l

MKETINV'i OF THE TICKET BROKERS
OF THIS CITY.
They "Will Protest Against the Proposed
Amendments to thelnterstateCommerce
La*-—Their Views—A "Waraer Excur
sion—Notes of the Rail.
The ticket brokers, "scalpers." of this
city held a meeting Monday night to
dismiss the proposed amendments to the
Interstate Commerce law. They claim
that these amendments, if adopted, will
drive them out of business. Chas. J.
LeSnnan acted as chairman and Ed. J.
Morris as secretary. The meeting ap
pointed a committee to work with other
committees appointed by similar meet
ings in other cities, to expose what they
regard as the iniquities of the measure
before the Congressional committee.
They offer the following statement for
For a long time the workings of the
Interstate Commerce Commission have
been so mysterious that suspicion has
been fomented to the effect that it had
become a big machine, guided by the
heavy railroad corporations towards the
absolute suppression of all competition.
This tendency of the commission was
made unmistakably manifest by the in
troduction into the House, ostensibly by
the House committee on commerce, of a
bill amendatory of the Interstate Com
merce law. The introduction makes a
law of a common practice, viz: The
carrying of injured persons and attend
ants free, and the giving of reduced rates
to families of employees. This is the
film spread to hide the hand-writing of
the railroads, but it is futile, as the con
text shows that it has been prepared lry
those corporations, and injected into the
House by the Interstate Commission and
into the commission by the corpora
tions. Its main provision is a series of
sweeping and radical prohibitions
against making any effort to secure pas
senger patronage by any railroad com
pany, man, employee or agent. It in
hibits any railroad from paying any
salary or any commissions for the sale
of tickets, but allows a corporation to
station certified men at certain points to
hand out tickets automatically and to
take in the amount of cash prescribed
by the Interstate Commission under the
dictation of the respective railroads. It
further makes anyone who shall accept
an agency personally amenable to the
law should he in any way solicit patron
age. A fine of $5,000 is prescribed for
any man who shall in any way negotiate
tickets other than to ride upon. This it
will be readily seen places the traveling
public where for a long time the rail
roads have been itching to have them—
at the railroads' mercy. On the other
hand, by a neat arrangement, the big
trunk lines have the amendments so
fixed that they can apportion the carry
ing of emigrants among themselves.

THREATS TO EXPOSE.
A Letter Which Got W. M.
Walker into Trouble.
It Was Sent to Mrs. F. G. Ryan,
She Was To Be Illustrated in
A Peculiar Method of Collecting an
Alleged Board Bill—The Letter Was
Signed by "A Friend."
Yesterday afternoon, at 4:30 o'clock,
W. M. Walker, a middle-aged man,
whose appearance bor* every evidence
of respectability, appeared before Justice
Theodore Savage in the Township Court
with his attorney, for arraignment Upon
the charge of having threatened to, ex
pose another. The cottrt informed the
defendant that he had been arrested
upon complaint of one F. G. Ryan of
Anaheim, Orange county, Cal., who al
leged that W. M. Walker threatened to
expose another on the 17th day of March,
1800, by sending to Mrs. F. G. Ryan of
Anaheim, Orange county, Cal., a certain
letter, dated March 14th, and subscriljed
"A Friend." The court then read the
following communication, which was
embodied in the complaint:
"Mrt. F. O. Ryan —Madam : Are you
aware that when you left the hotel at
Fullerton without first paying your bill,
I You committed a criminal act? By the
laws of California guests at a hotel have
| no right to remove their baggage without
I first paying their board. I regret thai
j you did so, as it gives the hotel man the
power to have you arrested for so doing,
j and be has a good case against you.
| Judg?ng from the enclosed paper, he pur
: poses using the law against you; also
fully exposing, by publication, your act
|in the papers. He also purposes having
j a cut made of you and your mother leav
[ ing the hotel in Fullerton, each carrying
, a piece of baggage. Your husband will
: appear in the distance in true Irish eos
, tame, beckoning you to come quickly.
This will probably appear in the Cactus;
j also in the Brattleborough, Vermont,
paper. You are probably not aware that
! the Fullerton hotel-keeper will spend
j twice the amount of your bill in having
your ease put iiwthe most sensational
j manner in the not only in Santa
! Ana, but also in San Francisco, Los An
geles and Brattlelwrough* A detective is
now collecting facts about your private
life in Vermont, and also your hus
band's. The warrant of arrest for you
would have been issued this week, but
he wanted to get at some private affairs
to make the article more sensational. I
suppose you are aware that the news
papers take pleasure in publishing such
news. The public; like such, and no de
nial you can ever make will convince the
general public but that you tried to get
your l>oard for nothing.
Yours sincerely, ' A Friend."
The defendant entered his plea of not
j guilty to the charge just read to him,
I and through bis attorney demanded
trial by jury, whereupon his case was
set for the oth inst. at 10 o'clock a. m.,
bail being required in the sum of $1,200
meanwhile. The defendant's counsel
made an effort to obtain the release of
his client upon a less sum, but the court
informed him that lie was bound to take
into consideration the gravity of the
The above letter which was dated on
March 14th, reached its destination on
the 17th alt., and soon after receiving it
Mrs. Ryan referred it to her husband,
who placed the matter in the Irands of
Detective A. B. Lawson, for investiga
As both the letter and the address
upon the envelope were type-written,
and the latter was simply post-marked
"Los Angeles, March 15th," the prob
lem to be solved, as to the originator of
the document, would to the average in
dividual seem almost to defy detection.
Detective Lawson, however, found two
clues to work upon immediately on see
ing the letter. These were the peculiar
water-mark on the paper upon which it
was written, and the fact that it had
been written with a Caligraph machine,
as seen from the type. With these
slender threads to work upon the detec
tive commenced and in a few days
traced the letter to a young lady type
writer, who, upon being challenged,
confessed to having written it for a gen
tleman, who, it wasalleged, was Walker.
The suspected man having been located,
the young lady type-writer was invited to
accompany the detective to Redondo
Beach yesterday morning, and she
readily identified Walker as the man
who had induced her to write the letter
for him, and he was thereupon arrested
and brought up (o town.
