The Board of Directors Hold an Important Meeting. The Committee on Hotels Makes an Interesting; Report. A Pointed Communication on Railroad Fares to California Presented. Should Florida and Other Atlantic Coast Resorts Be Boomed at Our Expense by the Railroad Companies? The board of directors of the chamber of commerce met yesterday afternoon, First Vice-President Hervey Lindley in the chair and Messrs. Wells, Toler and Book present. The secretary read a number of letters from surrounding towns, favoring Los Angeles as the place for the holding of the citrus fair. A letter by J. W. Northup of the New York Sun, offering to write a page about Los Angeles, was read and the secretary instructed to reply that the citizens might subscribe for the 00,000 issue. A letter from Warren L. Knox, secre tary of the Boston Fruit and Produce ex change,thanking the chamber for its in vitation to visit Los Angeles, was read and filed. A i c-oliiticn endorsing Mr. L.E.Mereer as an energetic man and one fitted to represent a county at the world's fair was adopted. Mr. Wells moved that President E. W. Jones be requested to withhold his re signation until the end of his term. Carried. The following report from the hotel committee was read and the committee given a vote of thanks : To the Hoard of Directors of the I.os Angeles Chamber of Commerce. Gentlemen :—Your committee on hotels begs leave to report that it has interviewed the proprietors of the lead ing hotels of the city, and finds that they are well patronized by eastern tourists, who state that a good feeling for Southern California exists in the east , and that many would come here to spend their winters away from the cold instead of going to Florida, if the rail way transportation for California was as low as it has been made to Florida. The low rates to that country are taking a large number of people there this season, and some effort should be made to ob tain at least a temporary reduction in rates to lx>s Angeles. The commercial travelers are here in larger numbers than at any time in the history of this city. This is an evidence of the increased prosperity of this locality. The "family boarding hotels of the city arc numerous, and arc located at con venient points throughout the city, and • owing to the excellent manner in which they are conducted they are attracting the attention of eastern tourists, many of whom state that they intend to spend their winters in them, and escape the pleasantries of the regions of cyclones and icebergs. In relation to the reduction of fares to Los Angeles, the following letter has been received: Los Amqm.es, Cal., Nov. 25, 1800. To Secretary of Chamber of Commerce, I.os An gles City: Nik—While on avisit oast last summer I saw crowds at the depots in Cincinnati and St. Louis buying tickets to Jackson ville, Florida, and other southern points at reduced rates. I talked with some of them, and learned that there were no excursion rates to California, at loaat for first-class travelers. They said that one person could buy a ticket at the same rate as one hundred could to California, and I have since seen a letter from Capt. Ennis, of Chicago, stating the same thing. Now is thia right? Cannot your honorable body do something to remedy this? I know you will try. The great need of Southern California, in my humble opinion, is cheaper rates — that is, lirst-class rates. Is it not a fact that very few strangers are coming to California just now? Talk with the new arrivals, aud you will learn that they have been here before and have some holdings to look after, the reason they have returned. I will make the following suggestion : "Will not the chamber of commerce use their influence to get a half-rate llrst class fare to Southern California for the month oi January, 1801, and will they (the chamber of commerce) assist the railroads in advertising these rates? I believe they will do it ii it strikes them as the right thing. 1 therefore request that you consider this matter at your next meeting, and I sincerely trust you can prevail upon the roads to treat Cali fornia right and establish smh rates as will induce travel to our delightful country. Yours very respectfully, W. F. Gill. Mr. J. Ennis, traveling passenger agent of the Southern Pacific railroad company at Chicago, in a letter to Mrs. N. B. Grasty, of Los Angeles, says: The present rates otter no inducement, for parties of one person car purchase a ticket as cheap as one hundred. This has destroyed all enthusiasm for going. Under the regulations of the Transcon tinental association of foreign excur sions inducements were held out for parties of fifty or more. Parties who are compelled to go to California, in order to secure a low rate induced many to go with them, and consequently the travel was very large. In my opinion we will never have a large business to California again until the old plan is substituted for the present one. We are now having a large and in creasing business to Mexico. In another letter to the same lady Mr. Ennie states that: "Formerly railroad rates were so ad justed that parties of ten or more could secure a reasonable reduction. As an example of California business, when the rates for the round trip were $100, if parties of ten could secure a rate of say $l»5, a party of fifty or more a rate of. $80. This was the cause of my getting largo parties, running from one hundred to one thousand, to join my excursions. The present one waß taken "at the same rate you can secure for large numbers, and no inducement was held out to ex cursions. I believe the only chance for you iB to go where you are known, and get up parties for Mexico." The Ocola Banner, of Marion county, Florida, gives an account of the securing of specin' i atee to Florida: On May 1 i the presidentof the bureau o i a of this state commenced a systematic correspondence with prom inent railroad officials, with a view oi asc> i tain in g th possibility of establish ing reduction of rates to actual immi grants from dliferent points of the THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 29, 1890. United States to Florida. On the 2d of June the president addressed a memo rial on the subject to tl.e rate committer of the Southern Pacific association, re questing them to take charge of and present the same to the committee. The matter was conducted with such zeal and ability that the rate committee, at its meeting held on the 17th of June, at Virginia Beach, granted the rate over all lines embraced in the territory of the association. Since that time efforts have been made, some of them success ful, to induce other lines leading to wards Florida to adopt the same rates. The Louisville and Nashville railroad companies issued a circular running ex cursion rates to points on its lines to Florida, and other southern states, co operating in the scheme for the present rates of the Central Traffic association, the Western States Passenger associa tion and the Trunk Line association, together embracing over one hundred different lines. The success was due to the efforts of some of the leaning citi zens of Florida. The extreme limit for the rate was | limited to Cincinnati, Louisville and St. Louis. A monthly bulletin was issued, from Florida containing the names of all I lines over which tickets are sold at re- j duced rates, with directions how to sc- ; euro tickets, choose routes, and these j will be sent to a thousand or more ad dresses throughout the union ami will effectively supplement tbe rates of the several transportation lines interested in the same. It appears to the committee on hotels, that the people of Southern California should join in an effort to have the rates reduced to this part of tho state, by making use of every valuable agency within their reach, to influence the rail road companies in making such reduc tion. The committee, therefore, recommend that tho chamber Ol commerce take ac tive steps towards procuring special re duction for parties of excursionists to Los Angeles and vicinity. Respectfully submitted, W. H. Toler, Chairman, j Mr. Book moved that a special eoin i mittee be appointed to prepare for the reception of President Manvel of the Santa Fe. Carried, and Messrs. Wells, Book and Jones appointed. | Major Toler moved that the chamber j tender a vote of thanks to Charles Dud ! Icy Warner for his able article in Har per's Monthly. Carried. A vote of thanks was also tendered to Mr. Joseph I). Lynch and Mr. 0. M. Wells for their speeches at Riverside. The board then adjourned. Donations to the chamber of commerce from Rivera cover a fine display of flow ers from Mrs. T. J. Parsons; Mrs. Julia Hutchinson donates a sample of cotton from Fillmore, Ventura county; C. Fred Bean sends three boxes of limes for the three exhibits; J. M. Rogers, sixteen pound sweet, potato for California on Wheels; Mrs. E. S. Ayers,Tropico, flow ers. Nine cases were sent to California on Wheels. THE MONKEY WRENCH Caused the Elevator Man to Meet a Horrible Death. At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon George Ham, the engineer of the ele vator in the Potomac block, on Broad way, was almost instantly killed by ac cidentally falling down a well, some eighty feet deep, in that building. Ham. an elderly man of considerable I experience, was in the habit of climbing ' j out upon the edge of a small partition, j I built in the well to hide the weights ] which balance the elevator, in order to I oil the big pulley-wheel over which ' the wire rope is run. While doing so ; yesterday afternoon, he in a moment of j j thoughtlessnessplaced a monkey-wrench j I on the rope, in order probably to hold it while he used both hands in oiling the standards oi the wheel. Unmindful of his danger, the old man leaned over to wards the wheel, and at this moment a passenger got ou the elevator and the j boy started the machinery. As the rope traveled over the pulley-wheel it took the monkey-wrench with it, and on its | downward course this weapon struck the old man and knocked him headlong down the well. No sound escaped htm, but tho noise of his heavy body striking the wooden floor on the first etory at tracted the attention of the elevator boy and several other people in the hallway. On running to ttie place, they were horrified on finding that the old man had fallen upon his head, death being almost instantaneous, his brains being scattered in all direc tions. His wife, who was firing for him down in the engine room during his tempor ary absence, was informed of the acci dent, and her grief knew no bounds as she saw the Eenseless form of her hus band, who, five minutes earlier, had j been the embodiment of life and strength. Coroner Weldon was also no tified, and after vi swing the scene of tho accident, took charge of the body and will hold an inquest at 10 o'clock this morning. ELUSIVE BEDWELL. A Move for His Trial's Postponement Taken Under Advisement. J. F. Bedwell has had a checkered existence in the courts for the past year, and yesterday kept up his reputation in staving oft' an unpleasant charge of ob taining money under false pretenses on a real estate deal. The original charge was brought against him over a year ago, and since that time three informa tions drawn by the district attorney's office have been knocked out on ac count of defects in their drafting. Yes terday when the ease came up on the last information, a jury was empanelled and Mr. Rogers called" to testify by the prosecution. As soon as his examina tion was completed, Mr. Blair, counsel for the defense, asked for a dismissal upon the ground that the testimony of the prosecuting witness was at variance with the information. Judge Cheney thought there was enough merit in the point to take it under advisement, and the case was continued until this morn ing. THIRTY DAYS. The Friend of Mrs. Rasmus Gets That Sentence. A. 11. V. Sinden was sentenced by Judge Cheney yesterday morning to one mouth's imprisonment in the county jail. It was a matter of some surprise that Sinden got off so lightly as he has, the jury finding him guilty only of sim ple assault in having shot Albert Ras mus, a haekman, several months ago. Rasmus was very seriously wounded, the ball entering his neck and very nar rowly missing the carotid artery. The relations between Sinden and Rasmus's wife were quiie broadly hinted at dur ing the trial, and it was thought he would be found guilty as charged. The jury thought differently, however, and i brought in the verdict mentioned. THE MAGNATES COMING. THE TERMINAL ROAD BUYING LARGELY OF MATERIAL. R. C. Kerrens and Associates to Be Here in February-General Manager Burnett to Make Large Purchases. General Manager T. B. Burnett of the Terminal Railway company yesterday received word from St. Louis that R. 0. Kerrens and the other nabobs associ ated with him in the company would arrive here in February, and would probably spend the whole of that month in this city. Mr. Burnett leaves for St. Louis on ! Tuesday, on a flying trip of two weeks, j for the purpose of buying material. The : extent of the contracts he ia to make mi i dicate plainly that the road is not going jtobe a toy one. He will purchase ten : locomotives, 300 passenger coaches and I freight cars, and about 70,000 tons of ! steel rails, or enough to construct about ! seventy miles of track. All these pur | chases are to be delivered in April next. Where that track will be laid now be j comes an interesting question. LEILA L-ATTA S TRIAL. She Must Answer to the Charge of Murder. Leila Latta, under arrest, charged j with murder, by having committed an i abortion upon one of her patients, came | before Judge Shaw yesterday, nnd the I district attorney moved to dismiss the ! information against her. He did so for | the reason that Mr. Westcott, the short hand reporter who took the testimony jat the preliminary examination, has died, and had not transcribed his notes j before his death. The district attorney i took the position that a second prelim l mary examination will be necessary, on ! account of the death of Mr. Westcott, ; and made quite an argument in support :of his point. Judge Shaw did not agree i with him, however, and denied the mo ' tion to set aside the information. The case will therefore come to trial. Dr. Latta is said to be brooding very much over her imprisonment, and the author ities at the county jail have been watch ing her very closely. STOLE BY THE WAGON LOAD. A Mexican Caught in the Act of Stealing Hay. A fanner named Bcall, who resides near Ballona, has a barn full of hay, which is worth considerable money just now. Of late he has been missing quantities of it, and for several nights past he slept in the barn, waiting for the thief. On Thursday evening while se creted, he saw a Mexican drive a hay wagon up, back it to the door, and pro ceed to load it up with tbe bales of hay. Mr. Beall collared the fellow and after securing the horses, started out with his prisoner to a neighbors, to secure help in guarding him. While going along through a double row of trees the fellow made his escape, but yesterday was arrested by Deputy Constable Cass Cline, and lodged in the county jail. SEVEN INDICTMENTS. The Work So Far of the United States Grand Jury. The United States grand jury made a verbal report yesterday to Judge Eoss, returning seven indictments, and ad journed until Monday. Two of the in dictments are kept secret until the arrests are made. The others are Jose Baron, for selling liquor to Indians ;Lu Chung alias Dr. Wo Sing, aiding and abetting the landing in the United States of Chinese laborers; Elijah Walker, at tempting to bribe a United States officer; same on same charge ; same for unlaw fully bringing Chinese laborers into the United States. A BROKEN ARM. Mr. Wolf Says That of His Son Was Improperly Set. Quite a lively damage suit is now go ing on before Judge Wade. It is brought by Mr. Wolf against Dr. Scholl, and is for $50,000. The plaintiff charges that the physician set his little eon's arm in 1880, after it had been broken, and did it so carelessly that the arm has been made crooked and almost useless. Some testimony was taken yesterday after noon, and then the case went over until next week. Stephen M. White repre sents tjie defendant, and C. C. Stephens the plfflntiff. JOHN SHIRLEY WARD. Another Party Puts Him in Nomination for Mayor. A number of citizens who are dissatis fied with both the Republican and Dem ocratic candidates for mayor, met yes terday morning at Y. M. C. A. hall to consider the situation. After consider able discussion it was decided to concen trate the fight on the mayoralty, and to put in nomination for that office John Shirley Ward. The plan of campaign is to put that gentleman's name at the head of both Republican and Democratic tickets, and thus gain the votes of all those opposed to the regular candidates. Mrs. Oieo. P. Smoote, a highly cultivated >md estimable lady of Prcscott, Ark., writes imdi rriateof April 22.'80: "During the sum mer of liiS7 my eyes Dccnme inflamed, and my stomach and liver hopelessly disordered. Nothin,,' 1 ate agreed with me. I took chron ic diarrhrea. and for some time my life was despaired of by myfnmlly.

We do not know; but whatever it is, at any rate the supreme court of Victoria has de cided that it is not libelous. A colonial newspaper charged a shire councillor with having "tiddly winked' the shire funds." Litigation ensued, and the mat ter was carried on appeal to the highest tribunal in the colony, with the afore said results. Some fifty English dic tionaries were brought into court to en able tho judges to ascertain what was the real meaning of the word, but "tid dly winking" was not discoverable in any of them. So they accepted the defi nition of the witness that the phrase conveyed to his mind the idea of "using little dodges to obtain ones own ends," An imputation of that sort the court de cided was not necessarily libelous.— Pall Mall Gazette. Pocket Barometers. Pedestrians with an inquisitive turn of mind have carried pedometers for some time past. The individual who owns an umbrella comes forward with a pocket barometer. Tho tourist ran across tho first man in his rounds who carried a pocket barometer. The gentle man was a "commercial tourist." He took tho barometer—which, by the way, was attached to a Dickens chain—from his pocket, consulted it and said: "Well, I guess I'll take my umbrella today."
