THE COUNCIL.
NOTHING DONE ABOUT THE FIRST
STREET GRADE.
Considerable Routine Business Trans
acted—The Opening of Broadway—A
Number of Ordinances Passed.
The first hour and a half of the ses
sion of the city council yesterday morn
ing was taken up with a discussion of
tbe First-street grade matter. Much
the same ground was gone over in the
arguments as was presented on Friday,
last, at the special session. The argu
ment started by a property owner wish
ing to be heard, then Captain Barrett
spoke for the, company. There was no
motion put and nothing but talk re
sulted. Messrs. Witmer, Maltman and
Eaton spoke for the railroad, and Messrs.
Qalbraith, Pinkham, Eccles and Colver
for the property owners.
Requisitions of the superintendent of
streets to have Market street repaired
to cost $75; to repair Second street be
tween Spring and Broadway, where the
street was paved to conform with the
grade of the old Second-street Cable
railway, to cost $190; to have Court
street repaired where worn out by
horses, to cost $20, were Referred to
board of public works.
On motion of Mr. Nickell the water
overseer was directed to put in a tem
porary pipe across tbe Los Angeles river
in Zanja 9 E, to give temporary relief to
people along the line while the main
pipe is beihg put in. The cost will be
about $250.
The gas and light committee recom
mended the petitions of W. Dockstader
et al., for an electric light at the corner
of Chestnut and Vallejo streets, and the
petition of M. T. Collins et al., foi Sight
on Boyle avenue, be filed. The report
was adopted.
The city auditor reported having ex
amined the reports of all officers for the
month, and found them correct.
The city engineer reported that the
stairs leading up along Court street,
from Broadway, are situated on these
two streets and not on private property.
He presented an ordinance for the con
struction of a cement walk six feet in
width, on the west side of Grand ave
nue, between Ninth and Eleventh
streets. This was passed.
An ordinance for a cement wa'k on
the west side of Broadway, from First
to Temple street, was referred to the
board of public works.
Maps for the proposed opening of
Santee street, between Ninth street and
the north line of Childs tract, and be
tween Fifteenth and Sixteenth- streets,
were referred to tbe city attorney.
The cost of regrading Macy street, be
tween Aliso street and second angle,
and of grading the proposed extension
of Bridge street, from Macy street to
Aliao street, was estimated at $100. The
matter was referred to the board of pub
lic works.
An ordinance of intention to change
and establish tbe grade of First street,
between Burtz and Vendome streets,
was presented and passed. This ordi
nance was drawn in accordance with the
new law, and ordinance No. 967, on the
same subject, was repealed.
In the matter of the proposed new
bridge of the Southern Pacific rail
way company, across the Los An
geles river at Alhambra avenue, the en
gineer reported: "The three companies
interested have agreed to the raising of
their respective tracks three feet above
the present heights. There is no estab
lished grade of said street at the river,
and a's the proposed change will be for
the benefit of the city, I recommend
that the council grant said companies
permission to raise their tracks."
Adopted.
A deed granting a strip of land along
the western edge of the city for sewer
purposes was received from b.Ballerino.
The land committee recommended
that the petition of Mrs. M. Kavanaugh
et al., asking to lease the city land at
Hayes and Walnut street, be filed.
Adopted.
AFTERNOON SESSION.
The special order being the opening
of Broadway, Dr. Widney was allowed
the floor, and suggested that considera
tion of the matter be deferred for a
couple of months to allow the protest
ing parties time to settle the matter
among themselves. On motion of Mr.
McGarry the city attorney was instruct
ed to draft an ordinance abandoning the
rights of the city to Broadway from
Tenth to Pico streets, except a two-inch
strip on either side of the street from
Tenth to Eleventh streets.
The next order was the protest of Mrs.
Huber against the acceptance of work
on Twenty-third street grade. The rep
resentative of the contractor, Mr. Jones,
objected to any further proceedings on
the ground that the property owners
had already exhausted their right of ap
peal, and the contractor should be pro
tected against prociedings merely in
tended to obtain a reduction in price.
He thought there were people who
would be dissatisfied if tbe street were
paved with gold. No one ever heard
any complaint until the collector was
asked -to make a rebate of $20 on an as
sessment. On motion of Councilman
Rees the matter was postponed two
weeks.
The Loomis avenue matter coming up
for consideration was deferred for two
weeks, until the return of Councilman
Bonsall. ,
The city attorney presented a draft of
an ordinance requiring contractors erect
ing new buildings to leave at least half
the sidewalks in front of such structures
undisturbed during the work, and to
protect the passers-by from falling
bricks, etc., by erecting a twelve-foot
lence on the inner edge of the half-side
walk. The ordinance was referred to
the board of public works, to allow the
contractors to object if they wished.
The city attorney also presented an
ordinance against the throwing of filthy
and waste water into the gutters and
upon the sidewalks of the city streets.
On motion of Councilman Innes the or
dinance was placed npon its final pass
age and passed without dissent.
The city attorney reported that he was
enable to have a graduated scale of li
censes for banks until the council estab
lished a scale. On motion Councilmen
Nickel, Alford and Innes were appointed
a committee to establish a scale of li
censes as desired.
Mr. Summerland made a motion that
the city attorney be directed to prepare
an ordinance repealing the hack ordin
ance. The motion was lost by a vote of
4 to 4.

were ordered placed at Mission road and
Griffin avenue.

prepare approaches to the Water street
bridge.

sion to enter upon Twenty-third street
and make certain improvements under
direction of superintendent.

walking Grand avenue from Fifth to

regarding printing were suspended and
the ordinance passed.
An ordinance for the macadamizing of

ment of Eighteenth street also passed
under suspension of the rules.

intention be prepared for the sidewalk
ing of the north side of Eleventh street
from San Pedro to Main street where
sidewalks are not already laid.
It was directed that specifications be
prepared for keeping city fire and

Adjourned.
THE COURTS.
t
AN INTERESTING DECISION BY THE
SUPREME COURT.
A Matter Involving the Question of a Con
tractor's Lien—Notes of Cases Which
Were Aoted Upon Yesterday.
A decision of the supreme court was
received yesterday and filed with the
clerk of the supreme court in this city.
The case is entitled Leoard Mayrhofer
vs. the Board of Education, and was an
action brought to foreclose a lien for
materials furnished a sub-contractor for
the building of a public school house.
A final judgment had been entered upon
a demurrer to tbe complaint, and the
plaintiff appealed from the judgment of
the superior court.
The opinion, after citing the various
statutes and sections of the constitution
relating to liens, goes on to say:
"The government was created and
shaped by the constitution. It is not
an end in itself, but a mere instrumen
tality for public service. Its powers
and functions exist only for the people.
One of its, functions is to enact laws for
the government of the inhabitants
within its limits, thereby affording them
protection and advancing their general
welfare. The property it holds is sim
ply to enable it to perform the service
required of it.
"It is as much devoted to public use
as are the streets and highways, though
in a very different way, and it is gener
ally held by a different tenure.
"Instead of being the natural and ob
vious conclusion that a general law pro
viding remedies for private individuals
was intended to enable a creditor of the
state to seize their property for the sat
isfaction of his debt, it would be tbe
most unnatural inference."
Continuing, tbe opinion says: "Sup
posing, therefore, as we must, that the
section in the constitution was framed
in view of the well-known rule of con
struction and in the same instrument,
in which are the other provisions al
luded to, and that it omits to mention
public buildings, it is manifest from the
language itself that they are not in
cluded. It would follow that the judg
ment should be affirmed.
"For the reasons given in the forego
ing opinion the judgment is confirmed."
COURT NOTES.
Judge McKinley was on the bench in'
department five yesterday forenoon and
listened to a number of motions and
continued a few cases. In the afternoon
his honor left for San Bernardino, where
he will sit in the trial of some sewer
cases, the local judge being disqualified.
The cases will no doubt occupy him dur
ing the entire week, and there will be
no court in his department until Satur
day.
Max Harris was yesterday arraigned
before United States District Judge
Ross on two separate charges of sending
lottery tickets and advertisements
through the mails. He entered pleas
of not guilty, and the trials were set for
the 29th of May and the 2d of June, re
spectively.
The case of H. W. Edelman, charged
with presenting a fraudulent claim for
services rendered to the county, was
called before Judge Smith, and upon a
showing by counsel that the defendant
was sick and unable to appear, the case
was again placed on the calendar, to be
called June Ist.
Max Harris yesterday appeared in
department one of the superior court,
withdrew his appeals in the two cases of
selling lottery tickets and paid the fines
formerly imposed, amounting in the
two cases to $400.
In the United States circuit court the
case of Nightengale et al. vs. Milwaukee
Furniture company was called yester
day, and Judge Ross set Wednesday,
May 20th, to show cause why a receiver
should not be appointed.
In the case of Fulton vs. Jansen.an old
suit which has been before Judge Wade
for some time, a judgment was yesterday
entered for defendant as prayed for.
Grant Clark, the young man charged
with compounding a felony by allowing
himself to be bribed into non-attendance
as a witness, was examined yesterday
before Justice Austin and discharged,
the court holding that there was no evi
dence of ctiminal intent.
H. C. Jackson was arraigned before
Justice Austin yesterday on a charge of
fale pretenses. He asked time to plead,
and his case was set for the 22d, with
bonds given in the amount of $1500.

THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 19, 1891.
THE OLD PARD LETTER.
A DEMAND FOR CHAIRMAN STUMP'S
THOUSAND DOLLARS.
The Republican Committeeman to Be
Sued—Governor Markham Will Be the
Chief Witness.
That "Old Pard" letter, that missive
written in lead pencil by H. H. Mark
ham to E. G. Hallock when the two were
friends and mine-owners, will he pro
duced in court before long, says the San
Francisco Examiner of Sunday.
It was first brought to public notice in
the last week of the last campaign, when
Markham was making his best efforts to
be elected governor.
In the communication to his partner
he wrote: "I do believe, Hallock, that
we shall make some money out of those
dam mines, after all. I am glad that
Irish crowd are out, and hope that the
Chinamen will be all right."
The Democratic state central commit
tee thought it had a powertul political
weapon when Dr. Congar, of Pasadena,
brought the letter all the way from Los
Angeles and handed it over to Chairman
Rußseii Wilson.
The unfortunate reference to the
writer's joy at getting rid of the "Irish
crowd," and his hopefulness that the
Chinamen would be all right, it was
thought by the Democratic leaders,
would lose the man with the magnetic
hand a good many votes.
Chairman Stump of the Republican
state central committee at once de
nounced the letter as a forgery. He
knew that Markham held the Irish in
high esteem. Had he not repeatedly
said so during his canvass of the state?
So certain was Mr. Stump that Mark
ham had not written the letter, that be
advertised extensively that he would
give $1000 to any one who could prove it
to be genuine.
CHASING THAT THOUSAND.
Then Russell Wilson started after
that $1,000. After a good deal of sparr
ing and feinting it was finally arranged
that the document should be produced,
for inspection before the Republican
committee.
It was carefully drawn out of the in
side vest-pocket of Mr. Wilson one af
ternoon, a week before election, and
placed on a table in front of Mr. Stump
and his colleagues.
It was examined carefully. It was
compared with some other writings of
Mr. Markham.
Every Democrat could see at a glance
that it was the handwriting of the Re
publican candidate.
Every Republican could see with one
eye shut that it was not.
Mr. Markham was in San Bernardino
at the time. He had been interviewed
extensively as to tbe genuineness of tbe
letter. He could not recollect even hav
ing written it. But he would not say
square and fair whether he had not.
Then he commenced to dodge reporters.
Mr. Wilson* suggested to Mr. Stump
that they both take a special train to
the southern country, show the letter to
Markham and ask him if it was in his
handwriting.
Mr. Stump was too busy and could
not go. Every prominent Republican
in San Francisco was suddenly stricken
with an overwhelming pressure of busi
ness when the same proposition was
made to them. • '
■, A CAMPAIGN FUND NUCLEUS.
So election came along. Markham
defeated Pond. All interest in the ques
tion as to whether the new governor
liked the Irish or not died away.
Mr. Stump never paid over the $1000.
At a meeting last week of the Demo
cratic state central committee the al
most forgotten letter popped up again.
Somebody suggested that the $1000
would come in handy as a nucleus for
the presidential fund of next year.
So Russell Wilson was instructed to
sue Mr. Stump. He has now the neces
sary legal documents in preparation.
The complaint will be filed in a few
days.
It is the intention to make Governor
Markham the principal witness for the
plaintiffs. He will be asked one ques
tion :
"Did you write E. G. Hallock that
you were glad the Irish crowd were out
of your mine?"
If the governor says he did not, Mr.
Wilson will probably reply:
"That settles it."
If tbe governor owns up to the au
thorship, Mr. Wilson will probably say
to Mr. Stump:
"Gimme that $1000."
CALIFORNIA ASPHALT.
A Big Sale of It Made to Eastern
Parties.
The Oil Burning and Supply company
have begun their shipments to the east
for this season with five cars of refined
asphalt, to a large manufacturing firm
in New York. The asphalt waß tried
and contracted for in competition with
Trinidad imported material, and several
hundred tons were shipped last year. It
speaks volumes for the excellence and
quality of the material —though these
nave for many years been proven by the
irrigation systems of Southern Califor
nia—as well as the enterprise of the
above company, which finds so distant a
market for our products.
Dyspepsia, indigestion, sick headache, and
that tired feeling are cured by Hood's Sarsapa
rilla, which tones the stomach, promotes
healthy digestion, creates an appetite, cures
sick headache and builds up the wnole system.
Bold by all druggists. 100 doses One Dollar.
Uncle Sam Bays It.
On May 7,1891, the contract for sup
plying the United States army with
baking powder was again awarded the
Cleveland Baking Powder company.
The fact that the government requisi
tion calls for baking powder "equal in
quality to Cleveland's" is a high tribute
to the great merit of the powder. Cleve
land's is the standard.
