THE COUNCIL.
The First-Street Grade Ordi
nance is Vetoed.

chise to be Forfeited.
Big- Petitions Relative to the Sunday
Closing Question.

The city council met yesterday morn
ing, President Frankenfieldin the chair,
and Messrs. Bonsall, Brown, VanDusen,
McLain, Summerland, Wirsching,
Shafer and Hamilton present.
The reports of the various city officers,
as published in the Herald, were read
and referred to the finance committee.
The city clerk asked whether he
should keep the checks of unsuccessful
bidders until thecontracts are approved.
Mr. Wirsching said that it was the in
tention to do this, tor in case the lowest
bidder did not take the contract the
next lowest bidder could be awarded the
contract.
Mr. Shafer said that the rule worked
a hardship upon the bidders, for the
checks might be retained for weeks and
months. He thought that the success
ful bidder should leave his check until
the contract is approved, but the unsuc
cessful bidder should not be compelled
to leave his check. They should be
allowed to withdraw their checks.
Mr. Van Dusen moved that the city
clerk be instructed to return all checks
to unsuccessful bidders as soon as the
award is made. Carried.
An ordinance of intention to establish
the grade of San Fernando road was read
and adopted.
An ordinance of intention to change
the grade of Hope street from Twenty
third street to Adams street was read and
adopted.
The city engineer recommended that
the space" between the curbs at the inter
section of Main and Spring streets be

plot. On motion of Major Bonsall, the
superintendent of streets was instructed
to construct a sidewalk there.
Specifications for a bridge across the
Arroyo Seco were referred to the bridge
committee.
The city engineer estimated the cost of
disposing of the flood water at Elliott
street at $15,000. Received and filed.
The request of the street superintend
ent for two additional inspectors was
referred to the finance committee.
The names of the deputies appointed
by the pound-master were referred to the
finance committee.
The report of the city attorney as pub
lished in the Herald, was read and
adopted.
Mayor Hazard returned without his
approval the ordinance of intention to
establish the grade of First street on a
basis of one foot rise in twenty feet.
The ordinance was accompanied by the
following message:
In returning the ordinance of intention to
change and establish the grade of First street
from Broadway to the west city line, without
my approval, I regret that your honorable body
should indorse that policy which looks to tlie
removal of our hills and the wanton destruc
tion of the beautiful homes thereon, which
nave been the pride of our city, at au enormous
expenditure of money, the payment of which
is to be enforced by the levy of assessments on
the adjoining property, the owners of which
disclaim any benefit to be derived therefrom. I
speak advisedly, because in answer to my in
quiry to those advocating this cut as to what
was to be done with the overhanging walls, no
provision having been made by them in the es
timate of cost, they openly declare that they
did not intend to construct retaining walls; that
the cost <>f the same had not been taken Into
consideration because the same were lmprac- i
ticable and would never be built; that being so, !
the hills must practically be put on a grade
With the Street. Sow, if our hill property is so 1
objectionable that it must be brought down to a
level with a traffic grade, why is it that settle
ment, improvement and appreciation In value
hugs to and climbs over the hills instead of
spreading out over the vast extent of vacant
level land adjacent, on which there is already a
"traffic grade," not only of one in twenty, but
practically level.
Those owning business property in the city
will no doubt be greatly gratified to kirow
that they are to be assessed about one-fourth
the value of their property to further extend
traffic.
But business does not seem to run off In that
direction—rather incliues to follow the hill
Jiortion of the city than that portion which is
evel and on a traffic grade. If the first row of
hills was removed it would tend inevitably to
draw the business from the present locality to
the foothills, which would then be still further
west, and the traffic would then as now have a
tendency to hug the hills and leave the prop
erty that is now occupied tenantless. This im
provement would not increase business, but
would rather increase business property. This
new business property when created must be
utilized, if at all, at the expense of the prop
erty now being used for business purposes. Un
der the present condition of business a new
block does not necessarily mean a new business
house, but rather another empty store; and the
imposition of a tax on the empty store is an
example of the justice involved in the prosecu
tion of this work by the levy of an assessment
on Broadway, Spring and Main streets to di
vert business" therefrom westward through the
hills.
it must be manifest to one who contemplates
the ultimate effect of this traffic cut through
this range of hills that these people are entirely
right in tnat it will result, in the course of
time, in the removal of the first row of hills,
because of the magnitude of the retaining walls
which will he required in this case. They are
impracticable as well as expensive, for as soon
as this canal is cut through the hills those liv
ing thereon would naturally abandon their
homes because of the menace thereto by sliding
hillsides, falling banks and a blocked street;
and in my judgment the street would never be
traveled,"let alone be a traffic street, because it
could nut be kept open until the adjoining hills
were removed, for who would venture into a
succession of cuts with large overhanging walls
and dark tunnels, aggregating Dearly half a
mile in length, with no means of getting out
until the other end was reached, and hardly
room enough therein to turn around. This
dangerous, long, narrow and, at places, dark
passage would not he used until these hills
were removed, and to accomplish this work of
spoliation years would be required, during
which time this canal would marc the center
line of one of the most desolate and forbidding
places in Southern California.
Councilmen, spare the hills!'
The vote whereby the ordinance was
adopted was reconsidered.
Major Bonsall moved that the ordi
nance be adopted notwithstanding the
objection of the mayor. Lost by a vote
of 5 to 4.
Mr. Brown moved that the ordinance
establishing the grade on a basis of one
Ja ten be taken up.
An ordinance was read, but it was
found that it had not been prepared by
the city engineer. It was referred to
the board of public works.
A message was received from the
mayor urging the council to acquire
about forty acres of land in the vicinity
of reservoir No. 5, East Los Angeles, for
park purposes. The land belongs to
I. W. Hellman, who would give the
city a contract to convey the land at any
time, providing the city paid interest on
the purchase price at the rate of 7 per
cent, per annum. The experts bad
placed the value of the land at from $760
to fI,OOO per acre.
Mr. Brown said he was in favor of
parks, but he believed in putting some
of them in other parts of the city than
the East Side.
THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, JUNE 5, 1890.

cial committee on parks.

following:
lteferring to a resolution of your honorable
body, passed the 2(>th ultimo, ordering me to
pay into the city treasury the interest uccruing
at i>' 2 per cent, per annum on city funds held
by me on deposit in several banks of this city
from date of approval of ordinance, lay Marefi
11, IS9O. to May 13, 1890. the date oh which
I said funds were actually deposited in the desig
j nated depository of public funds, I desire to
answer that immediately after the approval of
! the above named ordinance 1 was served with
j a restraining order by a court of competent jur
isdiction preventing me from ma«ing the de
| posit contemplated in said ordinance, and that
i Injunction remained in full force and effect un-
I til the — of May, IS9O. when it was dissolved.
You are well aware that the case is now pend
] iug in the supreme court. As soon as practi
cable after niv release I complied with the re
j quireinentsof the ordinance by depositing the
j funds in the City Hank. Now your order of May
| 20th virtually commands me to perform an act
I that would prove a direct violation of an order
! of the superior court, and failing to do so 1 must
make good the interest while that Injunction
j was in force. As a law-abiding citizen I re
fused to violate a direct mandate of the higher
power, and now as your humble servant most
respectfully decline-to pay interest on the city
! funds while the court was deliberating as to the
I continuance of its own order.
Mr. Wirsching moved that the city at
j torney proceed to collect the interest,
i Carried.

ple on Main street have until September
Ist to construct a pavement, which was
rejected.
Police Commissioner Lewis asked for
a leave of absence from June 10th to
June 22d. Granted.
The board of education requested that

school. Referred to a special commit
tee, consisting of Messrs. Wirsching,
McLain and Hamilton, to act in con
junction with the board of education.
A petition from the Illinois Associa
tion, asking that the license ordinance
be amended so as to exempt the asso
ciation from paying $20 per night was
read. One of the members appeared
and stated that unless the license was
taken off the association would have to
be broken up,
Mr. McLain said that the charge had
been made against him by the associa
tion that he was using his position to
break up the association. He said he
was willing to take the matter before
any committee of citizens, but if the
Illinois Association was not to be
charged a license, he should not be
charged a license for his theater. The
matter was referred to the finance com
mittee.
The park commission report, as pub
lished in the Herald, was read and
adopted. It requested a credit of
$5,000.
Mr. Wirsching suggested that the

be sufficient to keep the parks going.
Referred to the finance committee.

torney be instructed to commence pro
ceedings to forfeit the franchise of the
Second-street railroad.
Major Bonsall stated that the pros
pects were that the road would be op
erated before next winter. He did not
see why the councilman from the sev
enth ward should interfere with matters
in his ward.
Mr. Brown said that Major Bonsall
forgot that he interfered in his motions
regarding the Seventh-street road.
Mr. Frankenfield said that he had
positive information that if action were
taken to forfeit the franchise, the peo
ple would get a road over the hills sooner
than if matters were allowed to take
their course.
Major Bonsall said that he could find
out before the next meeting just how the
matters stood, and asked to have the
matter laid over.

opinion that it would be better to decide

material difference to the city if it was
not so decided.
The motion was carried. After re
ferring the petitions to the proper com
mittees the council adjourned.

THE RAILWAYS.
The Accident to Thomas Loveall.
Notes and Personals.
Some days ago a man by the name of
! Thomas Loveall fell off the Colton flyer,
| coming this way, near Ontario. He waß
i considerably cut and bruised about the
body and head, and when discovered
was insensible and unable to give any
account of himself. The statement is
i now made that the man is half-witted,
and lives at San Bernardino. On the
morning when the accident took place
lie was at Colton, and intended to take
I the motor road back to San Bernardino,
i Instead of that he got on the Colton
flyer, which started off in the direction
;of Los Angeles. When he had gone
nearly to Ontario he discovered his mis
take and sprang off the train. This is
[ the account of the accident given by the
railway officials.
The Southern Pacific pay car passed
through the city yesterday on its way to
Santa Barbara.
S. B. Hynes returned yesterday from
a prolonged visit to Chicago.
A recent number of the San Francisco
, ('a/7 says:
The report that a party of surveyors
i have commenced operations on a pro
! posed line from Mojave to this city, in
the interest of the Santa Fe, seems to
; have been well founded. A gentleman
j who lives near Mojave, and who is in-
I terested in the proposed extension, said
| that it had long been the intention of
the Santa Fe to extend their line to San
Francisco, a distance of only 400 miles,
and through a section of country where
j the expense of survey and building
1 would be comparatively cheap. The
SantaJFe has been prevented heretofore
from making the extension by the terms
of a contract with the Southern Pacific
Company, whereby the Santa Fe agreed
to not extend its line while allowed to
run through trains over the Southern
Pacific Company's lines.
This was a four years' contract and
; soon expires. It is safe to conclude
that this contract will not be renewed
with the Southern Pacific Company, as
the management of the Santa Fe system
has determined to have a line of its own
i from Chicago to San Francisco. The re
cent purchase of the St. Louis and San
J Francisco road shows that the Santa Fe
lacks neither capital nor enterprise, ami
' that it has an eye on the immense busi
ness now handled by the Southern Pa
j cilic Company alone. Though it is a
I fact not generally known, a number of
j high officials of the Santa Fe recently
' paid a visit to Mojave, and it is under
stood by those on the inside that the
I visit was not wholly a matter of
j pleasure.
