WAR DECLARED.
THE COUNCIL VERSUS THE CITI
ZENS' WATER COMPANY.
A Suit Which Will Please the Crown
Hills People—A Forfeiture of the Com
pany's Property to the City Prayed
For.
Suit was commenced yesterday by the
city council against the Citizens' Water
company to forfeit the water works
heretofore used by said company, for
the public use.
The complaint recites the necessary
preliminary facts as to the status of
plaintiff and defendant, and the fact
the ordinance establishing water rates
was duly passed, and is a law. The gist
of the complaint is contained in the
following paragraphs:
7. That since the Ist day of July,
1890, the defendant, the Citizens Water
company, has charged, demanded and
collected from citizens of the city of
Los Angeles for water supplied to them
by said company, water rates in excess
of the water rates so fixed and estab
lished by said city council by said or
dinance ; that said defendant since the
Ist day of July, 1890, has charged, de
manded and collected water rates from
the inhabitants of said city that are
not eiual and uniform, and which are
and were unequal, unjust and discri
minative against the inhabitants of said
city; that since the Ist day of July,
1890, the said defendant has failed and
refused and now fails and refuses to
furnish pure water for the inhabitants
in the hilly portions of said city, suffi
cient for domestic or family uses, and
since said date haa failed to supply the
inhabitants of said portions of the city
with a sufficient supply of water of
any character, although the water sup
ply of said company at that time was
and ever since has been pure and of
sufficient quantity to have supplied the
inhabitants of that portion of the city
with pure, fresh water sufficient for do
mestic purposes and family uses.
8. That since the Ist day of July,
18IX), said defendant has charged, de
manded and collected from ihe inhab
itants of said portion of the city of Los
Angeles water rates which are greater
and in excess of the water rates charged
by the Lcb Angeles City Water com
pany for similar services.
9. " That since the Ist day of July,
1890, the defendant, the Citizens' Water
company, has been tendered by numer
ous citizens of said city who are water
consumers of said company, theamount
to which said company was entitled as
water rates for water so furnished, as
established by said ordinance so passed
by said council, and that said company
has refused to accept the same and de
manded a higher and greater rate than
that to which it was entitled by the pro
visions of said ordinance, and upon the
refusal of said citizens to pay the same,
it has shut off the water from the
premises of such citizens and deprived
them of water altogether.
10. That while said ordinance only
provides that any corporation or person
furnishing water to the inhabitants of
the city of Los Angeles shall have the
right, in all cases where there is a large
consumption or waste of water, to apply
a meter and collect meter rates, that
said company has applied meters to
premises where there was not a large
consumption or waste of water, and has
demanded meter rates for furnishing
water to such premises.
11. That the hilly portion of the city
of Los Angeles, which is supplied with
water by said company, is a large and
populous section of said city, and that
no other water company operates or has
pipes within that district, and that there
is no way by which the inhabitants
therein can procure water in sufficient
quantities except by bringing the same
from a distance, and that they are now
wholly dependent upon said company to
supply them with water for domestic
purposes, irrigating their lawns and
shrubbery, and for protection from lire.
12. That said company has purchased
and now owns the following described
real estate (describing it), upon which
real estate said company has erected its
water works, consisting of reservoirs,
pumpingstations, boilers, engines, pipes,
machinery, apparatus and other prop
erty necessary for and used in the opera
tion of its water works ; and that all of
the same are fixtures upon said real es
tate, and that all of said real estate and
fixtures are necessarily used in the op
eration of and compose a part of the
water works of said company. That said
company has also laid down in the
streets, alleys and other public places in
said city, and also across private prop
erty therein a system of water mains,
pipes, conduits, service pipes and other
apparatus used for and necessary in sup
plying water by said company, and all
of which also comprises a part of the
water works of said company.
13. That defendants, James C. Kays
and Samuel B. Hunt, as trustees, claim
some interest in or to the real estate,
personal property, water works and
franchises herein described, the nature
and extent of which claim is unknown
to plaintiff.
Wherefore plaintiff prays that the
water works of said company, composed
of real estate, reservoirs, pumping sta
tions, boilers, engines, machinery, wa
ter mains, pipes, conduits, service
pipes, apparatus, together with all other
property of whatsoever kind and descrip
tion used in connection therewith, to
gether with all franchises, grants and
privileges granted to and owned by Baid
company as heretofore stated, be for
feited to the said city of Los Angeles for
the public use, and for other proper re
lief.
A VILE CHINAMAN.
A Citizen's Experience With a Beastly
Vegetable Peddler.
A doctor was yesterday called on to
set several broken bones in the right
hand of a well known business man of
this city. When asked how the accident
happened, the patient said that day be
fore yesterday when he was out of bis
house a Chinese vegetable peddler came,
and going into the kitchen grossly in
sulted the servant girl and attempted to
take liberties with her person. The
girl managed to get away from him and
waß so frightened that she ran out of
the house. The Chinaman went into
the front part of the house and uncere
moniously entered the various bed
rooms, in one of which was the gen
tleman's wife, who was in a delicate con
dition. On seeing her, the wretch acted
in the same way that he had with the
girl, but the lady's screams frightened
him and he made off. Meanwhile the
girl had met the husband, who was re
turning home, and he pursued the rascal
and, catching him, tried his best to
smash the fellow's head in. He had no
weapons but his fists, but so great was
his rage that in one blow he broke three

bones in his right hand by its impact on
the mongol's head. He made good use
of his left, however, butat last the fellow
managed to get away, though he was
terribly bruised and bunged up.
A SPOOK LOCOMOTIVE.
The Curious Behavior of a Southern
Pacific Engine.
A curious incident happened at Santa
Ana yesterday. A hostler was wiping
a locomotive in the Southern Pacific
round house at that place during the
severe windstorm. The door happened
to blow open, and a spark from his
torch fell into some waste and fired it.
The flames spread rapidly, and as a
measure of safety the man ran the en
gine, which still had steam, out of the
house, leaving it on the track. He re
turned and succeeded in extinguishing
the blaze. While so occupied he heard
a rumbling noise, and looking up, saw
the locomotive slowly rolling back into
its stall. No one was in the cab and no
one was in the vicinity of the house.
It was an uncanny sight, but the man
sprang tor the cab, reversed the lever,
and stopped the ponderous machine
just as her nose dug through the wall.
The practical explanation of this is
that when the man left the engine he
unconsciously reversed the lever just
enough to move the machine back
ward.
Some of the railroad men, however,
when asked their idea, shrug their
shoulders and say nothing. One, how
ever, was induced to tell a Herald re
porter some curious things about this
locomotive, which is credited with being
haunted by an engineer who was killed
on it in an accident. It is said that
whenever this spook gets a chance to
take possession of the engine, when
steam is up, he will pull the whistle
cord, ring the bell, arid "pulling her
wide open," will resume his professional
duties. He is said to be very consider
ate, never causing an accident or injur
ing any one, and surrendering his engine
whenever a mortal interferes.
THINKS HE CAN FLY.
Wittke Sent to Napa to Get Cured of
His Insane Ideas.
Rudolph Wittke, who ran amuck in
East Los Angeles on Wednesday, with
the avowed purpose of clearing out that
suburb, and who was only overpowered
after a hard struggle with the police,
appeared yesterday in department five,
to be examined with respect to his men
tal capacities. The poor fellow's mind
has been tottering for about three
weeks. Although he can answer ration
ally to a good many questions, he has a
few hobbies which need only be men
tioned to set him off on some of the
most ridiculous conceits that a dis
ordered mind can conceive. He believes
himself immensely rich and wishes to
buy all he sees. It is his conviction
that he can fly. Two other ideas of his
are stupendous, but cannot be men
tioned. The medical commissioners
found that he was insane and dangerous
at large, in consequence of which he
was ordered committed to Napa. Wittke
is 43 years old, is a native of Germany,
and has been six years in California.
He is a partner of the grocery firm of
Hahn 4 Wittke, Kurtz street, East Los
Angeles. The lunatic will be taken
north today.
CRAIN'S CHILD.
Coroner Weldon Investigates the
Causes of Its Death.
Coroner Weldon returned from Lan
caster yesterday, whither he went to
make an investigation into the cause of
the death of the six-year-old son of Con
stable M. H. Cram, of that place, which
occurred under somewhat peculiar cir
cumstances on November 2d, last. As
the result of his inquiries the coroner
learned that the child was struck in the
stomach by a brick, hurled by an eight
year-old playmate named Sanders, some
three weeks before its death. A few
day's later the Cram boy was standing
up in Dr. Barber's wagon, when the
horses attached to the vehicle started
suddenly forward. The child fell back
wards, and in order to save itself grab
bed the back of the seat, but this was
jerked out of place, and the unfortunate
boy fell to the ground, the heavy seat to
which he still retained his hold, falling
across his stomach, causing internal in
juries, which resulted fatally.
BROAD GAUGE.
The Denver and Rio Grande New Road
Now Completed.
A telegram from W. H. Snedaker,
general agent of the Denver and Rio
Grande at San Francisco, states that the
new broad-gauge line will be opened on
November lGth for through business.
Arrangements are completed to run
through Pullman and tourist sleeping
cars to Denver, Colorado Springs and
Pueblo.
The line will be opened with a new
and complete equipment, consisting of
dining cars, chair cars and day coaches.
It passes through the cafion of the Ar
kansas, Salida, Leadville, Glen wood
Springs and Grand Junction. This road
should add considerably to the tourist
travel to this part of the state, as well
as tend to develop new lines of business.
STRICTLY BUSINESS.
Pacific Coast Failures During the
Month of October.
The Bradstreet Mercantile Agency re
ports ninety failures in the Pacific Coast
states and territories for the month of
October, with assets at $201,904, and
liabilities $467,505, as compared with
sixty-three for the corresponding month
of 1889, with assets at $167,080 and lia
bilities $322,494.
Following are the causes assigned for
the failures : Incompetency 20, inexpe

of business and bad habits 3, excessive
competition 4,« unfavorable circum
stances, floods, fire, etc., 11, fraud 11.
Foolish Martyrs.
There are martyrs and martyrs. Some were
wise in the loftiest, some are silly in the most
improvident sense The word improvident ex
actly applies to the latter class, since they
neglect to provide against threatened danger.
We commiserate, but we cannot respect them.
Among the silliest are martyrs to rheumatism,
who might have prevented daily and nightly
recurring torture by the early use of Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters, a blood depnrent more efficient
in removing the virus of this c mplaint from
the eiroulatlen than any thus far brought to
the notice of the general community and the
medical profession. It prcmotes greater activ

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.
IT ASKS FOR A PACIFIC CABLE AND
TO NAME A CRUISER.
The Directors Meet Yesterday and Adopt
Several Resolutions—The Harbor Writ
ten About by Dr. Widney
The board of directors of the chamber
of commerce met yesterday afternoon,
First Vice-President Hervey Lindley
in the chair, and Directors C. M. Wells,
E. W. Jones, W. H. Toler, A. W. Bar
rett, J. H. Book, L. N. Breed, Fred
Eaton and Dr. J. I. Widney present.
Secretary Hanchette as directed at
the last meeting, presented a resolution
to the effect that the chamber approves
of the action taken by the (San Fran
cisco chamber of commerce in urging
the passage of a law, by congress, au
thorizing the survey of the Trans-Pacific
Sub-Marine cable route, and subsequent
legislation encouraging the formation of
a company for this purpose, and
that the secretary of the Los Angeles
chamber of commerce be instructed to
address communications to the Pacific
coast members of both houses of con
gress requesting them to use their best
efforts to secure the passage of such laws
as may be necessary for this purpose.
Major Jones moved that a committee
be appointed to draw up a petition to
the secretary of the treasury requesting
that the new United States cruiser to be
built in San Francisco be named the Los
Angeles, and that the petition be circu
lated for signatures about the city.
Dr. Widney presented the following
letter, which he stated he sent to the
board of engineers examining the coast
for a deep sea harbor:
(Joloneil Mendel, 1". S. A..
Colonel—Upon behalf of the chamber
of commerce of Los Angeles, I beg leave
to ask the attention of yourself and the
other gentlemen of the harbor commis
sion fo the following facts as commercial
points, to be considered apart from en
gineering questions in the construction
of a deep water harbor near this city.
No doubt the points which I shall
enumerate have already been well
weighed by you, but you will pardon
this reference to them by us, as they lie
within our province aj a commercial
body:
First. The population which within
the valleys of Southern California must
depend upon this harbor for its
ocean outlet is not to be estimated
from the present census returns.
These valleys will within a limited
number of years contain at least a mil
lion inhabitants.
Second. Back of these are the trade
lines of Southern Nevada, Southern
Utah, and the great Arizona valleys,
which must all by the law of grades and
shorter lines, find their outlet to the sea
at this point.
Third. And again, back of these is
the current of transcontinental business
which will seek the low passes and the
short line from sea to sea, which will be
found between the deep-water harbor of
Galveston and this which is to be con
structed in Southern California. To
meet the need ol the commerce which
will thus be forced to seek the sea at
this point will necessitate,
First. Ample space for both light and
deep draft vessels, both for anchorage
and wharf room.
Second. Ample and well sheltered
space for ship building and repairing.
Third. Ease of access and clear sea
room for vessels entering and leaving in
all kinds of weather.
Fourth. To these might be added the
possibility of enlarging the harbor and
readily developing increased anchorage
ground and wharf frontage, as the future
needs of commerce may demand.
With thanks for the time and care
which your body has so courteously
given to the subject, I remain, very
respectfully, J. P. Widney,
Chairman of Committee on Commerce.
On motion of Major Barrett the action
of Dr. Widney was approved.
Several other matters of» minor im
portance were discussed and the board
adjourned.
CITY LITIGATION.
The Substance of the City Attorney's
Report.
The following statements are taken
from the advance sheets of the city at
torney's report to the city council. It
shows the course of the city's liti
gation during the past two years:
When the presentadministration came
into power the validity of the charter
was at once attacked, and has been con
tinuously attacked since that time, with
the result that quite a large portion of it
has been declared void; and it has been
at all times a serious question just how
much of the charter would stand, and
whether to institute proceedings under
it or under the eeneral law. The city
has had probably three times as much
litigation during the present administra
tion as in any other, as the following
record of cases, taken from the annual
reports to the council, will show. City

Mills vs. City.
In addition to these cases, City Attor
ney McFarland has also prosecuted in
the police court 3C77 cases, in which
11,475 days of imprisonment were meted
out, and $11,036 collected as fines. He
has also had to give numerous opinions,
and to advise the different officers of the
city in a multitude of matters, attend to
all the council work and draw ordi
nances. He has had to prepare all the
proceedings in relation to the issuing of
$375,000 worth of sewer and $300,000
worth of school bonds, which proceed
ings were not even questioned by the
attorneys of the parties who bought the
bonds. He has also had to prepare all
the contracts for the building of these
sewers and school houses, and in all
other matters in which the city is inter
ested, as well as the ordinances for street
grading and the opening and widening
of streets. The c'ty has not had to pay
one cent for outside counsel during Mr.
McFarland's term of office, something
which cannot be Baid for any former ad
ministration for a number of years.

Orange Lands For All!
THE SEMI-TROPIC LAND AND WATER CO. have about 20,000 acres left
of their original purchase of 29,000 acres of the best orange land in Southern
California.
We have always sold our lands for $200 per acre, until this fall. Now we have
reduced the prices and fixed our terms to bring the land within the reach of all.
We are arranging two irrigation districts under the "Wright Irrigation Act," and
are selling land in one of these districts at $75 per acre, with a rebate of $15 per
acre for improvements, to be put on the land by the purchaser the first year. This
leaves the net price at $60 PER ACRE, payable, $10 per acre cash, the balance in
3 equal payments, due in 2, 3 and 4 years, at 8 per cent interest.
In the other district we sell the land for $100 per acre, with a rebate of $26 for
improvements put on the land by purchaser the first year, which leaves the net
price at $75 PER ACRE, payable $10 per acre cash, balance in 2, 3 and 4 years, at
8 per cent, interest.
Our lands lie four miles west of San Bernardino and Colton, on the Santa Fe
and Southern Pacific railroads,seven miles north of Riverside,and we are prepared
to establish the fact that in quality and location they are not excelled in this
country. Our elevation is 1300 feet above sea level, being about 400 feet higher
than Riverside, and almost entirely free from frost.
