POLICE AND FIRE. THE MEETINGS OF THE TWO BOARDS YESTERDAY. The Chinese Pool Games Considered. Sfrious Charges Against Offioer Dunn. Saloon Licenses Granted. The. board of police commissioner! met in regular weekly session yesterday afternoon. The following report from the chief in the matter of the Chinese pool games was read and filed: To the Honorable, the Board of Police Commis sioners, City of Los Angeles: Gentlemen—According to your in structions I had a conference with the district attorney, Hon. P. P. Kelly, in regard to the Chinese pool-rooms, and 1 find that two cases charging Chinamen with conducting percentage "Rudolph" or Chinese pool, were appealed from our police court to the superior court, and are set for hearing on January 19, 1891. The result of these cases in the superior court will settle the question ol per centage. The district attorney is of the opinion thai the police courts, under the Whitney act, have exclusive juris diction in these cases; and there are now several such cases in our police courts awaiting the result of the ap peals. I would suggest that these cases be disposed of, and ii the defendants be found guilty they can appeal to the higher court. 1 do not believe it is the duty of this department, or our police courts, to look after the constitutionality of any o; --dinance, or statute of the state, and I will endeavor to have the old cases Sending in Justice l.ockwood's court rought to trial as rapidly as possible. Respectfully submitted, J. M. Glass. Chief of Police. In the matter of the delinquent saloon licenses, the chief reported that all the places mentioned in the tax and license collector's report were closed, with the exception of a few, the proprietors of which had paid up. The application of R. F. Doll for a transfer of the license for No. 106 North Main street, now in the name of Rowan Si O'Brien, to him, was granted. The petitions of 11. S. Haville for a permit to procure a license for a new saloon at No. 240 South Main street; and tnat of J. J. Maloney for a like privilege at No. 1518 San Fernando Street, were referred to the chief under the rules. The following communications were then read by Clerk Robinson : To the Honorable Board of Police Commis sioners of Los Angeles City: Gkntlkmbn—l beg to bring to your notice the violent, vulgar and abusive conduct of Officer Dunn towards myself and Mr. Gorman on December Hi, 1800, between the hours of 12 m. and 1 p. m. of that day, at the southwest corner of Main and First streets. The facts areas follows: At that hour and place, and while Mr. Gorman and myself were standing awaiting a car of the Main Mreel and A. I*. K. B. Co., we were in a loud and boisterous tone of voice com manded by said officer to get out of that, and to stand back, who, when we didso, told and ordered us in the same insult ing manner to move on or he would club us. I and Mr. Gorman refused to move from the place, where in the first in stance, the officer indicated we should 'staTid; he then violently pushed me »«svt;ral times towards the gutter, and again threatened and made a -motion to club me. There were a large number of citizens present, who saw ami heard all that happened. The violence and boisterous conduct of this ruffian, who wears the uniform of a guardian of the peace, indicated that lie would be better placed if he were at ■jireeent. in the lands of his nativity, •where he doubtless would distinguish 'himself in his vocation as a clubber. Respect fully Jno. Roiiarts. To the Honorable Board of Police Commission ers of Los Angeles city. 'Gentlemen—l have to call to your notice the offensive and ruffianly con duct of Officer Dunn, on the evening of the 20th inst., between the hours of 6 and 7 p. m., when on coming out of a restaurant on Main stieet he grabbed me by the coat, shoved me and nour ished "his club in my face, and used vio lent, profane and vulgar language to ward me and two gentlemen who were accompanying me. Respectfully Thomas Gorman. Chief Glass stated that Mr. Dunn's conduct since he had been on the force had been uniformaly good, and his dis position was that of a gentleman un der any and all circumstances. The "matter was referred to a commit tee consisting of Mr. Collins, Mr. Lewis and the chief for investigation. At the request of the chief three mem bers of the department, who had been compelled through sickness to lay off for a few days this month, were allowed full pay m recognition of their services over time during the elections. After an informal discussion of the saloon question, the board adjourned until Friday morning at, 10 o'clock, when a special session will be, held to approve the payroll of the department for the ennent month. l ire.

There is talk of holding a series of races at the Gentleman's Driving park, New Year's afternoon. It is stated that the owners of some blooded animals in this vicinity have already entered their horses for the running and trotting events. This may prove a serious rival to the tournament of roses. Dr. G. G. Green has assumed the per sonal management of the opera house. He proposes to run it for the benefit of Pasadena. Secretary I.elong, of the state board of horticulture, telegraphed Byron W.

The Swiss President. Under the Swiss system the president of the confederacy has no more author ity than a member of the cabinet. The head of the government is a council elected by the parliament. This council selects a chairman from its members, who thus becomes president of the re public, and assumes a cabinet portfolio, usually that of foreign affairs. He is clothed with no powers of appointment to office. His co-members of the cabi net, even the judges of the supreme court, are all elected. He can serve but a single year; hence his time and tal ents, instead of being devoted to filling offices and seeking a re-election, are given to the service of his country. He is helped in his efforts for pure and eco nomical government by a corps of trained statesmen.—S. H. M. Byers in Harper's. Business. The scholar is always ready to pick up a thought, and a born man of business is ever on the lookout for a trade.

An Old Soldier Fancies He Belongs to a Celestial Police Force. Will M. Ilupert was yesterday com mitted to the insane asylum by Judge MeKinley. Hupert is an old soldier. Some four months ago, while living at the Soldiers' home, he~assaulted a boy at Santa Monica and was sentenced to three months in the county jail. At the time it was the opinion of many that Hupert was not in bis right "mind. During his stay at the county jail he wrote a number of letters to the superior judges and the city officials. They were written in a clear, legible hand, and showed that H upert was a man of good education. In a letter" to Judge Shaw, he stated that he was a detective of Cod. "Who told you to write to Judge Shaw ?" was asked by an attorney present at the examination. "God told me to write the letters," was the reply. Hupert has no relations in California, lie has a brother in Lincoln, Neb., and it is thought that he has relatives in the east. Hupert came to California about nine months since.

Location of Lands, With Description of Soil and Climate, and Comparison of Prices With Other Lands of Similar Values. The original purchase of these lands comprised 211,1)00 acres, situate immedi ately west of the cities of San Bernardino and Colton. Two transcontinental lines of railroad, the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific, trav erse east and west these lands, exactly two miles apart, giving us two townsites and stations upon each road, the stations being four miles from each other, thereby giving us unexcelled shipping facilities. Our land extends to within three miles |of San Bernardino, one and one-half of j Colton on the east and five miles of I Riverside on the south. Our average altitude is about 1200 feet above sea level, with a gradual and | regular slope from the mountains on the i north, with just fall enough to irrigate conveniently. We are 400 feet higher than Riverside j and 200 higher than San Bernardino, j which exempts us almost, entirely from I frost. Our lands are peculiarly adapted to ; citrus fruits, being right in the heart of j the best orange producing country in the ! state of California. Our subsoil is the same that has made Riverside famous the world over, with this advantage—we are fortunate in having a top dressing of decomposed granite ranging to a depth of from six to eighteen inches, which holds the moisture, always being in good condition for cultivation and readily furnishing the proper nourishment for starting the growth of freshly planted trees and vines. Irrigation may he indulged in td any degiee without fear of injury to the trees, vines or vegetables, or the risk of getting i the ground in bad condition, as frequent : ly occurs on land less favored. Our water rights are unsurpassed. We ! j own and control almost all the water in Lytle creek, the fourth largest streamin j Southern California, besides which we j have a large scope of artesian water bearing land where we have thirty line j flowing wells emptying their sparkling ■ waters into pipes which conduct it to the | rich lands below for irrigation, and to our streets for protection against fire, J and to our dwellings for domestic uses. IWe are boring more artesian wells con ■ stantly, never failing to secure a line flow of water, so that we have no hesitancy in sayingthatwe have a great abundance of water for all of our rich lands. Of the 29,000 acres originally pur chased we have sold about 9000 acres at $200 per acre, which leaves us about 20,000 acres yet to be disposed of. For the past two years but little land, comparatively speaking, has been sold in Southern California, on account of the depression in the money market, and the collapse of our boom, but now we think we see the dawn of an era of prosperity, such as has never been known in this country, and in order to attract the at tention of the world to our superior loca tion and lands, we have reduced the price to a figur below the price of the cheapest agricultural lands in this country, and propose to sell about 2000 acres to actual settlers and people who will improve the land, at $75 to $100 per acre, with 20 and 25 per cent. ofF for im provements made within one year from purchase, making the land but $60 to $75 per acre to the man who in good faith j improves the land, and on terms within the reach of all, to-wit: $10 per acre j cash on delivery of contract, balance in three equal payments, due in two, three i and four years, at 8 per cent, interest. Think of it! The best orange lands at I $00 and $75 an acre. Go all around us and ask the price of land not so good as ours. At Riverside on the south, at Redlands and Highlands on the east and northeast of us, all famous orange pro ducing districts, the price of unimproved lands ranges from $25;) to $500 per acre, and foi orchards five years old from $1000 to $2000 per acre are being paid, and they are well worth the money invested. Tbe water for irrigating these lands is furnished under the "Wright Irrigation Law" of this state, and costs the land owner only $2 to $4 per acre per annum. Rialto, where is located the home office of the company, is a smart little town of, perhaps, 200 people, situated on the main line of the great Santa Fe railroad, four miles west of San Ber nardino, and we have a line depot with telegraph and telephone communica tions with the world. A fine large hotel, the "Semi-Tropic," elegantly furnished and well kept, occupies a square in the center of Rialto, and one of the fine school buildings for which Southern California is famous, stands upon another square of the town. Two church organ izations are in a flourishing condition— the Methodist and Congregational. A pleasant ride of an houi and a half through tbe beautiful orange groves of Los Angeles and San Bernardino coun ties takes you from the city of Los An geles, the metropolis of Southern Cali fornia, to Rialto. An excursion is conducted from Los Angeles to Rialto every Friday morning, leaving Los Angeles at 8:30, and return ing arrives here at (5:30 p. m.; tickets good for ten days. Fare for round trip $2.55, which is returned to every pur chaser of land by L. M. Brown, agent for these lands for the coast counties. Office, 132 North Spring" street.
