SEVEN OF THEM.
Mayor Hazard's Ready Mes sage Writer at Work. He Sends to the Council a Mystic Number of Messages. All of Which, Fortunately, are Very Brief and Pointed. A Lot of Routine Business Transacted Yesterday by the Council—How the Mayor's Vetoes Were Treated. The city council met in regular session at 10 o'clock yesterday morning. The chairman announced that the first order of business was the reading of mes sages from the mayor. The fact that there were seven of these documents caused somewhat of a sensation, but as they were all brief they were soon dis posed of, as follows: "I return without my approval de mand (clerk's No. 7630) in favor of Southern California Coal and Clay com pany for $1222.35. This bill is not prop erly certified by the engineer, who en dorses 'O. K. for distance and quality.' What this means is left to imagination. We are bound to assume that the engineer estimates the distance covered by the pipe laying loose along the line of the sewer, and that the distance cov ered is ample to authorize the payment of this bill. That is too loose a practice to be encouraged. He ought to certify that the proper amountof pipe, as called for in this demand, has been actually delivered, and the quality should be passed on by the inspector when it is being laid. This demand is also subject to the objection of the inequitable price charged for the pipe." Referred to the city engineer. "I return herewith demand (clerk's No. 7102) in favor of Pacific Clay Manufacturing company for $1,868.40. This is a bill for pipe distributed along the line of the western interceptor. The policy of constructing the portion of this sewer from junction of Pico and Alva rado streets north, should be determined by your honorable body before purchas ing pine therefor. It will cost $30,000, and when constructed will simply drain a large tract of uninhabited territory in the western part of the city. There will be no necessity for this sewer for many years to come, and to borrow money and pay interest thereon, by mortgaging the future prosperity of our city therefor, is an extravagance seldom met with in municipal affairs. It was not contemplated, when this general sewer system was outlined, that this portion should be built before it became necessary by reason of inhabitancy, and I would suggest that a personal inspec tion of the ground be had before you proceed further in this matter. The contract for building the sewer is not yet entered into, not having been signed by me, because I did not believe it wise to construct the sewer at this time in the absence of any requirement there for. I have requested the citizens living in the western part of the city to meet to consider this matter on Tuesday even ing next, at the Ellis college, when the whole matter w ill be considered, and t he presence of all or any of your honorable body will be appreciated by the citizens interested, and may lead to beneficial results." Referred to the sewer committee. "This demand (clerk's No. 7101) in favor of the Pacific Clay Manufacturing company-, for $2605.25, with demand No. 7102, in favor of same firm, and No. 7636, favor Southern California Coal and Clay company, are objectionable in that it charges an exorbitant price for the sewer pipe, which is unnecessry for me to again repeat, and is therefore re jected." This demand passed, notwithstanding the objections of the mayor. "This demand (clerk's No. 7630) is for the salary of the superintendent of parks for the month of November, 181(0, who has already received his salary for that month by demand approved by the park commission. This is therefore re jected." The action of the mayor was sus tained. "This demand (clerk's No. 7424) is er roneous ; being ior twenty-nine days' work at $4 per day, should amount to only $110, while it calls for $130. I have approved it for the proper amount." The action of the mayor was sus tained, the demand being approved for the amount approved by the mayor. "These demands, being in favor of A. N. Tellier, C. P. Taylor, Thos. Rogers, Frank Everist, J. Valentine, W. T. Gib son, A. Johnson, J. H. Greenley, A. Bonett, J. Alexander, J. J. Whalling, J. M. Lugo, P. Smith, I*. Cartollo and Geo. N. Lockwood, call for $92 each, for hire of wagon twenty-three days, and are calculated at $4 per day. By ordi nance No. 684 this should be $3.50 per day, making the correct amount oi each demand $80.50, for which I have ap proved the same. Total amount of demands, $1380; cor rect amount of demands, $1207.50. The demands were approved in ac cordance therewith. "On the 25th of November, 1890, your honorable body adopted a report of" the committee on land, authorizing a deed to F. G. Howes, and for a piece of land therein described. The deed was signed on November 29, 1890, but it appears that there is an error in the description thereof, which appears also in your authorization, to wit: '200 ieet, more or less,' instead of '139 feet, more or less,' which the grantee asks to have corrected. "I would suggest that you authorize the correction of the deed in that par ticular (deed is herewith submitted , or the issuance of a corrected deed." The deed and. message were referred to the land committee. On motion of Mr. Shafer the petition of the city assessor for an extra deputy, at a salary of $3 per day of eight hours, was granted. The city attorney's report was read, in substance as foliows: "I have made demands upon the Santa Fe Railway company to pay into the city treasury the cost of repairing the Buena Vista-street bridge, and have also noti fied them to rebuild their own bridge in 100-foot spans, and to raise the same to comply with the city ordinances. They have refused to comply with either of these demands. ... I ask your fur ther instructions." Referred to the city engineer. The city attorney was directed to pro ceed legaliy to collect the bill against the road for repairing the bridge dam aged by the winter rains. "I have also notified the Southern Pa cific people tbat their bridge must be THE LOS ANGELES HERALD; TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 16, 1890. removed, and negotiations are pending looking to a compliance with the request at once." Filed. "In the matter of the demand of Charles P. Kearney for $100, I advise that said demand be denied." Adopted. "In the matter oi the demands of I). F. Donegan and Hugo Ehersbach for $5000 each, I advise that such demands be rejected." Adopted. "I inclose herewith a contract with John Farrell to remove dead animals; a contract with P. M. French to regrade a portion of Second street, and an ordi nance to amend the license ordinance— being drawn as per your instructions." The bond of John Farrell was fixed in the sum of $1000. The city engineer was instructed to report on December 22d, on the matter of the plans and specifications for the Walnut-street bridge. The water committee reported: "In reference to the furnishing and laying 1200 feet of cement pipe around the cat tle corral, on the line of the Citizens' Water company, we recommend the clerk advertise for proposals for furnish ing the pipe." The report was adopted. The official bonds of the following newly elected officers were presented, and referred to the finance committee for investigation: Freeman G. Teed, city clerk, J5000; E. 11. Hutchinson, superintendent of streets, $10,000; F. E. Lopez, city auditor, $10,000; John W. Hinton, city assessor, $10,000; M. D, Johnson, city treasurer, $150,000, and Len J. Thompson, tax and license col lector, $100,000. The amended Second-street cable road franchise to H. C. Witmer, admitting the construction of an electric system instead of cable, was adopted, after which the council took a recess until 2 o'clock p.m. AFTERNOON SESSION. President Frankenfield called the council to order, and the matter of the opening and widening of Wall street, which had been made the special order for 2 o'clock, was taken up. The matter was discussed at some length, but finally, on motion of Mr. Brown, action thereon was again de ferred for a week. 1 An ordinance of intention to sidewalk I Washington street, near the western j limits of the city, was adopted. A number of proposals for bridge I work and rent of reservoir No. 7, were ! opened, read snd referred to their re spective committees. The following bids for the city print ing, foi the coming year, were then opened and read: Times-Mirror Com pany, for each first insertion, 90 cents per inch; for each subsequent insertion 40 cents pfcr inch ; and Chas. W. Palm & Company, 14 cents per inch for first in sertion and 10 cents per inch for each subsequent insertion. The proposals were referred to the finance committee. Mr. Shafer then brought up the ques tion of the revision of the city charter, and called upon the clerk to read the proposed amendments as drawn up by the city attorney, and as have already been published in the Herald. The amend ments as proposed by the city attorney were finally adopted and ordered pub lished. NOT ENOUGH OF A ROMEO SO MARGARET DECIDES TO DI VORCE HER EMIL. The Former Leader of the Opera House Orchestra and His Famous Wife. Their Marriage and Probablo Separa tion. The dapper, sensitive-faced young man, who for nearly a year wielded the baton over the opera house orchestra, was Mr. Margaret Mather to the public, or Mr. Emil Haberkorn.tohis intimates. He came to Los Angeles for his health, it was stated, and that was why he was away from the plump charms of his famous artist wife, so his friends stated. He was a pleasant young fel low, a well-trained musician, but hardly qualified to play Romeo with the requis ite fire to the warm,vigorous, amatory de mands of Miss Mather's Jnlietish nature. When Mr. Hill produced Romeo and Juliet at the Union-Square thea ter, Haberkorn was the leader there. Miss Mather had up to that time lived somewhat as a recluse might. She re ceived no visitors at her hotel; her hours were spent in study, it was gener ally believed, and her heart was sup posed to be entirely free. It is still said that she and the blonde musician wooed only with their eyes, but their glances were effective messengers. So one day in February, 1887, Juliet and her would be Romeo stole away to Buffalo and were quietly married. It is now stated that proceedings for a divorce have been instituted by Miss Mather, and it is hinted that if all the testimony is brought out which would be necessary to substantiate the various allegations in the complaint, it will prove, in the language used to designate a certain type oi literature, rich, rare and racy. CUT OFF HIS SHOULDER. The Horrible Accident Which Befell Engineer Moore. "Missouri Moore" was fatally injured on Saturday morning. His name wa3 Robert Moore, and he was a well-known engineer in the ser vice of the Santa Fe company. He was the engineer of Santa Fe train No. 1, which makes the connection with the Southern Pacific at Mojave, and was bowling merrily along over the desert at the rate of forty miles an hour, sitting up on his seat looking out of the cab window. Near Fenner station there was a flash of something bright flying through the air, and it. cut through the engine cab, like a knife through cheese, taking off Moore's right arm and most of his shoulder. The side rod of the locomo tive had broken and swung wildly about, smashing everything it came in contact with. Moore was taken to the Needles, and everything done to alleviate his suffer ings. Hla recovery is hardly possible. Catarrh in canned by scrofulous taint in tho blood, and is cured by Hood's Sarsaparilla, which purities and enriches the blood and gives the whole system health and strength. Try this "peculiar medicine." it is prepared by C. I. Bood iCo., Lowell, Mats. Toward the Setting Sun Myriads ol emigrants take their way. Thou sands upon thousands of acres covered with the virgin forest still await the axe of the pioneer. "Holding down a claim" on the frontier, it should be remarked, has other drawbacks be sides that of disputed possession. Many an en terprising settler who, with indomitable har dihood, has cleared the waste, just as the scanty area is ready for tillage, is stricken by that foe of the frontiersman, malaria. What a boon to that man.and his fm"ily is Hostetter's Stom uh Bitters, what wise forethought has he shown if he has obtained an adequate supply. The f lr est fields for agricultural and mining enter prises on this continent and abroad are subject to this infliction. Protected by Hostetter's Stomach Sitters it m»y be defied. It will not do to confide in a robust constitution alone. Malaria prostrates the strong and weak alike. Take the Bitters, too, for rheumatism, dys pepsia, biliousness, kidney trouble. NABOBS COMING. THE TERMINAL MAGNATES DUE HERE IN FEBRUARY. General Manager Burnett of the Terminal Back from the East—The Union Pa cific Agents to Be Cut Off—Personal Notes. General Manager T. B. Burnett of the Los Angeles Terminal railroad returned on Sunday from a visit to St. Louis. While there he purchased steel rails for about se%'enty miles of road, and loco motives and rolling stock. Mr. Burnett stated that the nabobs of his company, including Mr. R. C. Kerens,would be here on or about Febru ary Ist. UNION rACIFIC OFFICES. The new management of the Union Pacific is already beginning to make it self known in a way that will not be agreeable to many railroad men, says the San Francisco Chronicle. Theofhces of the company at Fresno, Sacramento aud San Jose have been abandoned and there was some doubt as to whether the Los Angeles oflice would be maintained, though for the present no change will be made in it. The local offices are far too important and bring to the company too much business to render their abolition possi ble. The idea of the new manager is that the San Francisco office can take care of all the company's business in this part of the country. The offices named will cease to exist on January Ist, and at the same time the Philadel phia, Pa., offices are to be given up, the agent there being ordered 10 report at New York. The outside business in this state will be conducted by traveling freight contractors reporting to the , s an Francisco and Los Angeles offices. Carlton C. Crane, Pacific coast agent of the Vanderbilt lines, is In the city. John Clark of the Union Pacific, Fred Thompson of the Rock Island, and Ticket Agent H. A. Duffin, arrived in this city yesterday. FRUIT SHIPMENTS. The freight department of the South ern Pacific company has just completed its estimates of the fruits and vegetables shipped east over its lines this year from January Ito December 1. The canned goods shipments were heaviest in Sep tember, when 809 carloads were dis patched, the total for the eleven months being 3533 cars. As the average carload is 12 tons, varying from 10 to 14 tons, this would make the canned fruit ship ment 84,702,000 pounds. Raisins were shipped in large quant ity during October and November, the totals for the two months being 357 and 846 cars and for eleven months 877 carloads, or, at the same estimated average per car, 20,048,000 pounds. Dried fruit was moved in very large quantities during October, as we'll as in the preceding and following months. The total to December Ist was 1580 cars, or 37,020,000 pounds. The ship ments in green fruit were very large, as many as 837 carloads, or nearly 28 loaded cars a day, being dispatched. For the period of eleven months the shipments were 2028 carloads, or 70, --272,000 pounds. Of vegetables the heaviest shipments were in August, when the total was 452 cars, and during the eleven months 1210 cars, or 29,250, --000 pounds, were sent east. The total of California products east-bound in eleven months was 10,137 carloads, or 243,288,000 pounds. These totals are in each instance heavier than those of last year, showing an increase of from 20 to 100 per cent. CLIMATE RUFUCIEES.
