HAZARD'S READY PEN
Indites Four Veto Messages
to the Council,
And Severely Scores the City
Engineer's Office.
The Police Force Not to be Reduced
to Fifty Men.
The Terminal Railway Company Ask For
a Franchise—The Sunday Saloon
Closing Election to Be Called.
A Busy lleetjng of the
Council.
The city council met in regular session
at 10 o'clock yesterday morning. After
the usual preliminaries had been dis
posed of, a message was received from
the mayor vetoing the ordinance pro-
Tiding for the holding of a special elec
tion for the purpose of voting upon the
question of whether or not saloons shall
be closed upon Sunday. This message
has already been printed in the Herald.
On motion of Mr. Summerland, the
vote by which the ordinance was passed
was reconsidered and the action of the
mayor sustained. Major Bonsall moved
as an amendment that the ordi
nance be referred back to. the special
committee, appointed to consider the
matter. Mr. Wirsching objected, on
the ground that the members of that
committee could not agree upon that
qnestion. The city attorney was then sent
for at the request of Mr. Brown. He.
stated that the mayor's objections were
technical ones, and suggested that a
preliminary ordinance be drawn up,
calling the election. Major Bonsall
then withdrew his motion, and Mr.
Shafer moved that the mayor's message
be laid upon the table. Mr. Wirsching
wanted to know whether or not such a
course was the proper way to treat the
mayor. If he was right, the council
should give him credit for it. After
some further discussion of the question,
the motion to lay upon the table pre
vailed, Messrs. McLain, Wirsching and
Summerland voting negatively.
On motion of Mr. Shafer, the city
attorney was instructed to draw up a
preliminary ordinance announcing that
such an election would be held at some
future date.
The draft of an ordinance fixing the
tax levy at $1.20 was read, and the rules
having been suspended the same was
passed.
Reports were received from Police
Judges Austin and Lockwood, showing
the collection of $713 as lines during the
month of August, of which the former
collected $401 and the latter $312.
The water overseer reported that he
had in accordance with instructions
commenced to clean the water ditch to
which the Crown Hillites had objected;
and that he had appointed Santiago
Arguello as a mounted patrolman to
keep stock away from the ditch. The
question of a salary for the newly ap
pointed patrolman, gave rise to consid
erable discussion, but finally on motion
of Mr. Van Dusen the appointment was
confirmed and the pay fixed the same as
that of a regular police officer.
The city tax and license collector re
ported $15,313 collected for licenses dur
ing August.
The clerk of the police court reported
$713 collected in fines during August.
The chief of police reported $2.20 col
lected during August on wagon num
bers.
The water overseer reported $2,080.50
collected during August for the sale of
water for irrigation.
A report was received from the city
engineer in which the following para
graphs occur:
On message of the mayor returning demands
No. 5106 for repaying "junction of First and
Spring street, and No. 4052 for repaying of frui
ter crossing on east side of Broadway at Fourth
streets, also requisition for the paving of gutter
on Los Angeles street in front of Amestoy
building, I have to report as follows: The may
or states that the necessity for the change was
due to the fact that the intersections referred to
were not properly laid at first, and suggests that
the matter be referred to me to see who was to
blame for the defect. I find on investigation
that the grades for the intersection of First and
Spring were given in March, 1888. The inter
section of Fourth and. Broadway was laid in'
1888.
The intersection of Commercial and Los An
geles which the street superintendent has laid
was first laid about March, 1888. The Amestoy
curb had been laid at least six years, but I am
unable to ascertain th c date, as no record was
kept.
It will require 7,040 cubic yards to fill in back
of the levee between Kuhrtz and Buena Vista
streets bridges in order to bring the bank up to
Its former grade.
In the protest oi B. Chadsey against the pro
posed grading of Hancock street south of Dow
ney avenue a majority of the frontage is repre
sented.
In the protest No. 7450f Hamette Reeve etal.,
against the proposed grading of Bonsallo ave
nue, I have to report as follows: The total
frontage is 2,032.3. Total in protest whose
names appear on the assessment roll, 1,109.2.
"The city clerk reported on the condi
tion of the emergency fund and asked
that the same be replenished. Referred
to the finance committee.
The city attorney reported as follows:
*' In the matter of the breaks in the pipe of
the Arroyo de Los Reyes, I would advise that
whatever pipes are properly laid in said water
course, the city keep them in repairs and that
the clerk be instructed to send notices to the
property-owners where the arroyo is not piped
to pipe the same within a certain number of
days, according to specifications.
"I nave drawn and presented herewith an or
dinance providing for notice to the Citizens'
Water Company as provided in their lease.
"I present herewith an ordinance vacating an
unused road acroSß of Ord's survey,as
per instructions.
"I have prepared and mailed to the water
companies notices to plac* fire-hydrants at the
points Indicated by the chief of the depart
ment."
The ordinance in relation to the Citi
zens's Water Company was passed and
the one referring to the unused road re
ferred to the land committee.
The reports of the zanja and land com
mittees were received and adopted, and
an invitation from the board of park
commissioners to visit Westlake park at
7 o'clock last evening accepted.
The following message was then read
from the mayor:
To the Hon. Council of the city of Los Angeles'
"I return unapproved a requisition of the
water overseer to be authorized to have laid
nine inch sheet iron pipe on Orange street, as
this pipe has already been laid without any
requisition. The water overseer did not deem
It necessary to obtain the approval of the
mayor to enable him to order work done, and,
therefore, he does it without. It is a question
with me how I can properly discharge the
duties of my office if the subject matter of the
expenditure of the public money is to be taken
oat of my hands, and the judgment of the heads
of the various departments substituted there
for.
"The contractor who did this work under the
order of the water overseer without authority
so to do, will look to the water overseer for his
pay.
Respectfully etc.
The mayor returned without his sig
nature the contract with J. D. Hooker
to relay pipe on Lake Shore avenue.
The mayor stated that it would cost the
«ity $3614.25, while only three years ago
a sheet iron pipe was laid by the city
along the same route. Major Bonsall
■toted that the pipe was laid four years
ago and at the expense of privatel pa|

ties. The message was thereupon or
dered tiled and the city clerk instructed
to sign the contract.
Maj. Bonsall thought that the mayor
ought to have investigated the matter
more fully before sending in his message.
The pipe referred to had, to his certain
knowledge, been laid on Lake Shore
avenue four years ago at no cost what
ever to the city, by Mr. Witmer. It was
absolutely necessary that it should be
repaired immediately, and the zanjero
had so reported time and again._ He
suggested therefore that the president
of the council be authorized to sign the
contract for the city.
Mr. Shafer did not believe that a sin
gle dollar of the city's money had ever
been spent in furnishing water to those
outside of the city. After some further
discussion of the matter Mr. Summer
land moved to report to the zanja com
mittee. Maj. Bonsall moved as an
amendment that the message be received
and filed, which motion prevailed. On
motion of the same member, the city
clerk was then authorized to sign the
contract for and in behalf of the city.
In accordance with the recommenda
tion of the committee on public build
ings the new school houses on Ninth and
Gates streets were accepted.
A petition was received from the
board of directors of the public library
asking that in view of the necessity
for more room in their department, the
quarters now used by the board of edu
cation be turned over for library pur
poses. On motion of Mr. Hamilton the
matter was turned over to the building
committee, although Mr. Wirsching
wanted the surplus books sent over to
stock a small library at Boyle Heights
The report of the board of police com
missioners recommending the passage of
an ordinance closing the saloons from
midnight until 5 o'clock in the morning
was then taken up. Mr. Summerland
moved to lay the matter on the table;
but Mr. Frankenfield, who vacated the
chair temporarily in favor of Major Bon
sall, vigorously opposed the motion. He
said the police commissioners had a
great responsibility on their hands, and
it would he treating them very shabbily
to snub them by laying their very proper
recommendation on the table. It was a
regulation that was carried out in all
well regulated cities, and was worthy
their earnest consideration.
Mr. Wirsching said it was not fair to
come in at the eleventh hour with reso
lutions of this sort, and it was about
time that the council sat down on such
political buncombe.
Mr. Van Dusen was of the opinion
that the board had the power to close
the saloons at any time it saw tit, as a
police regulation, and wanted to hear
from the city attorney on the subject.
That official informed" the council that
under the charter the board was only
vested with power to regulate the police
department, and that it would require
an ordinance to close the saloons. The
matter was argued at some length, when
Mr. Summerland said that there was no
trouble at all about laying a mayor's
message on the table, and he could not
see why a'resolution of the police board
should cause such a fuss, especially
when it was patent that the police com
missioners were simply getting back at
one another. On the motion being put,
it was lost by 6to 3. Messrs. McLain,
Summerland "and Wirsching voted for it.
The last gentleman asked to be excused
from voting, but the council refused to
accede to his request. On motion of
Mr. Frankenfield the report was then
adopted, and on that of Mr. Shafer the
city attorney was instructed to draw up
an ordinance in accordance with the
recommendation.
Another recommendation to the effect
that the police force be cut down to
fifty men was received from the same
source. Mr. Frankenfield moved the
adoption of the report, and wanted to
go on record as in favor of cutting
down the force. He was satisfied that
in these quiet times fifty men could do
just as well as the present force, and it
seemed to him in the interest of the tax
payers that the report be adopted.
Mr. Hamilton thought that the pres
ident's argument would not hold good.
The fact that the city was not fully
patrolled had already "been heralded all
over the country, and professional crooks
were on their way here. It was cer
tainly in direct opposition to the tax
payer's interests to cut down the force.
Mr. Shafer said that one policeman to
every one thousand inhabitants was am
ple in a compact city, but not so in so
thinly populated a city as Los Angeles.
Mr. Frankenfield argued that the board
wa6 the best judge ; but Mr. Hamilton
moved that the recommendation be not
complied with, and this motion pre
vailed, Mr. Frankenfield alone voting
negatively.
Ex-Mayor Workman, who had been
waiting in the lobby with Major Burke
and several other gentlemen, then asked
leave to address the council on a very
important matter. He presented the
draft of an ordinance to provide for the
construction of a levee upon the easterly
side of the Los Angeles river, for the
protection of the streets and hridge ap
proaches of the city of Los Angeles, and
of property of inhabitants of said city,
from the high waters of said river, and
for the conveyance and transfer of city
lands and grant of right of way to the
Los Angeles Terminal railway company.
This he said would develop into one
of the grandest schemes ever projected
in this city. The men connected with
the enterprise were all of large means,
and six of them were already presidents
of railroads in the east. He urged upon
the council the necessity of taking
action as soon as possible, as the lumber
for the levee was coming from Puget
sound, and had not yet of course been
ordered. As vessels could not run there
all winter, it was nece%sary to order the
lumber immediately.
On motion of Mr. Frankenfield the
matter was referred to the board of
public works with the reques. that it re
port thereon at its earliest possible con
venience.
A recess was then taken until 2
o'clock p. m.
On reconvening at that hour the fol
lowing message was read from the
mayor:
To the Hon. Council of the City of Lou An
gelet:
I felt it my duty to nail your immediate at
tention to the manner in which the Arroyo de
lob Keyes main sewer is being constructed.
Crossing Flower street, between Fohrth and
Fifth streets, is the large forty-two-inch storm
drain, put in at great expense to the city.
This storm drain has been deliberately cut In
two at this point to give away to the sewer
being layed on that street, In projecting this
sewer no regard whatever was paid by the city
engineer to this storm drain. Some blocks
further up, at the corner of Second and Pearl,
the same thing has been done again.
At this point it has been patched up so as to
permit the sewer to run directly through the
atorm drain. They have covered the storm
irain with plank, which will rot out in a few
years, and let the surface of the street in, or the
dorm water will rush out on the street in case
a freshet, because the change being now
made on the storm drain below on Flower street
will further assist in blocking the storm drain.
This whole sewer system has been projected
with utterindifference to existing storm drains,
water conduits or sewers—the last improvement
jnder consideration having the right of way to
lestroy ail existing improvements.
I would be pleased to have your honorable
jody to go and look at the work now being
lone on Flower street, and I am satisfied upon
he merest inspection of what is being done
here you will agree with me that it would be
a the interest of the public to postpone the
further construction of eewers in our city until
the engineer's office is so managed as not to
threaten the entire destruction of all existing
water pipes, sewers and storm drains which are
* The deputy city engineer said that there was
nothing in his office to s.how the location of
this storm drain. I then called his attention
to the fact that this large storm drain termi
nates but a few feet from where they destroyed
it on Flower street, and begins a few feet above
where they cut it on Second street, in plain
view at either point. The exact location of
this storm drain is determined on the mere in
spection of the street, and is as plain and as
easy of location as the curb, lie replies that
the storm drain is no "good any way " Judging
from the character of engineering work done
for the city, I am half inclined to agree with
him in that regard. At any rale i am satisfied
if it ever was any good at any time it will not
be when he gets through with it. The sewer at
this point is less than six feet below the surface
of the street.
When it was originally planned, it
could have been dropped at this point
below the storm drain, making it less
than eight feet deep, notlhali as deep as this
sewer is at other places, improving the sewer
for usefulness, and thereby save the storm
drain. But they did not take the trouble to as
certain where the storm drain was, the records
in their office not showing itas they claim; they
concluded it was unnecessary to take the trouble
to show it on the profile; that if, by chance, they
should intersect it, they could make some sort
of a shift to get rid of it, which they are now
doing at the expense of the city, and destroying
the storm drain as a result of all this outlay.
You ought to go out and looK at it.
gßFrom the citizens' general executive commit
tee submitting the following:
Kesolved, By the citizens' general executive
committee, in the water movement, looking to
the ownership and coutrol by the city of Cos
Angeles of its own water aiid water systems,
that we respectfully an J earnestly request the
honorable mayor and common council of the
said city to provide as sooa as possible for a
complete analysis of the water or watery now
owned by this municipality, and that said ana
lysis shell include a separate end thorough ex
amination of water fiom the fountain head oi
supply now diawn upon by the Los Angeles
City Water Company and the Citizens' Wat.-r
Compiny, as wellas from the point of hydrant
delivery ia this city, and we respectfu ly ask
farther ijiat a committee may be appointed by
the honorable council to joiu a like cominutee
from this body in the selection of the wat. r to
be submitted to the analysis herein prayed for,
and that when the analysis aforementioned
shall have been determined, the result attained
may be duly filed in the archives of the city.
Deputy City Engineer F. E. Lowndes,
stated that the storm drain was not be
ing destroyed. If the sewerwas lowered
there, it would cost at least $10,000
more, as there was already four feet of
water at that point. The storm drain
was merelya brick conduit, which flew
to pieces every winter under pressure of
the storm water.
Major Bonsall said that it was only
a week ago that the superintendent of
streets had called the attention of the
council to this matter, and now the
Mayor reflected considerably on the
engineer's department. One side or
the other was in the wrong and the
matter should be investigated. On
motion the matter was referred to the
sewer committee.
The report of the finance committee
was adopted and the usual number of
demands approved in accordance with
its recomendations.
The report of the board of commis
sioners recommending the acceptance
of the bid of R. Maloney, for a four
wheel hose cart, was received and
adopted.
The board of public works presented
a supplemental report, with reference
to the Terminal railway franchise, and
after a long discussion, action was post
poned until two o'clock this afternoon,
the council having agreed to go over the
route together at 9:30 o'clock this
morning.
The report cf the gas and light com
mittee submitting specifications for the
lighting of the city by electricity and rec
omending the adoption of the same, was
after a prolonged discussion referred
back to that committee, Messrs. Bon
sall and Frankenfield being added there
to, on motion. The last named gentle
man said that it was certainly an out
rage that a city should be called upon
to expend so large a sum as $00,000 per
annum for such a wretched system as at
present furnished. He was in favor of
leaving this city in darkness rather than
waste so much money. Major Bonsall
strongly advocated inviting competition
in this branch.
The following bids for hose were open
ed, read and referred to the fire com
missioners : Pacific Manufacturing com
pany, 89cents to $1.05; W. T. Y. Schenck,
95 cents to $1; Crane Bros. Manufactur
ing company, 9(i'o cents; \V. C. Furrey,
$1; S. M. Perry, $1; J. W. Girvin & Co.,
$1.15; W. F. Bowers & Co., 90 cents to
$1.15.
The following bids for a chemical en- t
gine were read and referred to the same
board: \V. T. Y. Schenck, $2,140, or (if
ordered immediately) $1,980; J. W. Gir
vin & Co, $2,100; Allison & Barlow, $1,
--925.
The council then adjourned until this
afternoon.
THE POINT OF VIEW.
Mr. Lindley and Senator Bowers Look
at Things Differently.
Hervey Lindley stood in front of the
Nadeau yesterday afternoon and said in
reply to a Hkrald man's greeting, "Get
there, of course I will. What do you
suppose lam in the fight for? Talk to
the Doctor about it."
Dr. Lindley, who stood just back of
the group, said, "I am satisfied with
Hervey's prospects, and think he will
be nominated, surely. If I was a bet
ting man I would be willing to risk a
good deal of money on it. One thing
you can be sure of, that is that there
will be no dark horse business. One or
the other will get it."
Senator Bowers then plunged into
sight on the sidewalk, and the reporter
queried him:
"Get there? Of course I will; I shall
start off with eighty votes and I will be
nominated. If I didn't think so I'd go
right home. Dark horse? No sir. Not
a bit of one. The three men who have
worked for the nomination will furnish
the successful one. The delegates will
not permit any dark horse business."
"There's Lindley right in the hotel of
fice there ; you can see him through the
window," said the reporter. "Now to
settle this matter, come in and match
dollars to see which will retire in favor
of the other?"
"My dear boy, I've eighty votes, I tell
you ; what would I gain? No, sir, I am
in the fight to stay, and win if I can.
It's a nice, clean, hard fight, and it's all
right."
The two candidates smiled at each
other through the Nadeau's front win
dow, but that was as close as they
got to each other.
ITS FORTIETH BIRTHDAY.
California's Creation as a State to be
Celebrated.
Yesterday was a busy day with the
executive committee upon the Admis
sion Day celebration. Additional towns
were heard from favorably in regard to
having representatives in the tablaux
on Southern California ;;posters announc
ing the event were forwarded to all the
leading points within the six southern
counties; meetings of the ladies annex
of the chamber of commerce and of the
pioneers were attended; photographs of
two of the companies which are to take
part in the entertainment were ap
proved; arrangements for special round
trip rates with the Santa Fe and South
ern Pacific railroads were completed,
and other details of the celebration were
looked after, in addition to having two '
drills by participants, one in the after
noon, and another in the evening. Pub
lic interest in the celebration of Califor
nia's fortieth birthday is becoming
aroused, and Los Angeles will take at
least second place in her observance of
that day.

that this bank only loans money on approved
real estate security; that it does not loan money
to its stockholders, officers or clerks; thatamong
its stockholders are some of the oldest and most
responsible citizens of the community; that un
der the state laws, the private estates of its
stockholders are pro rata liable for the total in
debtedness of the bank.
These facts, with care exercised in making
