Below will be found a complete list of
the city law suits for the past year. The
compilation has been made from the
city records by the city attorney. The
list gives a brief statement of the dispo
sition which has been made of each
case, or an abstract of the status of all
cases not disposed of, viz.:
H. W. Mills vs. city of Los Angeles—
This action, brought for the purpose of
determining plaintiff's claim to sixteen
feet of land lying in Second street, be
tween Main and Spring streets, was, at
the date of my last report, pending in
the supreme court. It has since been
decided in favor of the city.
Main Street and Agricultural Park
Railroad vs. Morford—This action was
brought to enjoin the removal of a part
of plaintiff's building which was alleged
to be in the line of Washington street.
The action has been tried and decided
adversely to the city's claim.
Louis Phillips et al.vs. Len J. Thomp
son and the city—An action brought by
fifty-six plaintiffs to prevent the collec
tion of certain taxes on the ground that
the action of the board of equalization
was illegal and void. At the date of my
last report this case had been decided
adversely to the city aud steps
were being taken to appeal tbe case
to the supreme court in accord
ance with the instructions of
your predecessors in office. This appeal
has been abandoned by your orders, and
the plaintiffs in tbe case, with the ex
ception of one, have paid all taxes
except the raise made by the board of
equalization.
Alfred Solano et al. vs. Len J.Thomp
son and the city—This is a suit involv
ing the same questions as the Phillips
case, and is practically ended by your
disposition of the Phillips case.
French Benevolent society vs. city—
This action was brought to enjoin the
grading of Yale street. During the past
year an order dismissing the case was
entered at the instance of the plaintiff.
Mary A. Mooney vs. city of Los
Angeles—This action is brought to quiet
title to a piece of land on the corner of
Main and Jefferson streets which has
been taken by the city for street pur
poses and which plaintiff claims belongs
to her. Thiß case is at issue and set for
trial during the coming week.
Mary A. Mooney vs. W. E. Morford
and the mayor and council—This action
is brought to recover damages in the
amount of $23,400, alleged to be due for
cutting down and removing certain trees
from the land at the corner of Main and
Jefferson streets. Practically the same
issues are involved as in the last case
mentioned. This case is set for trial
with the other.
Frick Bros. vs. Morford, street super
intendent —This suit was brought to
compel the etreet superintendent to
make a new assessment for tbe grading
of Seventh street. At date of my last
report the case was pending on appeal
in supreme court. It has since been de
cided in favor of the street superin
tendent.
Antonio Valla vs. city of Loa Angeles
et al.—This suit was brought to enjoin
the selling of plaintiff's property to pay
assessment for widening First Btreet.
During the past year the case was dis
missed, the matter having been amica
bly arranged by the property owners
on First street.
Alice Dehail vs. city of Los Angeles.—
This suit was brought to enjoin the sale
of plaintiff's property for delinquent as
sessment for widening First street. The
case was decided adversely to the city in
the superior court, and is now pending
on appeal in the supreme court.
Jesse Yarnell vs. H. T. Hazard and
the city council —At the date of my last
report this case was pending on appeal
in the supreme court. The question
involved was the right of the city to
farm out the public funds with the bank
which would pay the highest rate of in
terest for the use of the same. The su
preme court has since decided that the
city has no such right.
Depot Railway company vs. city et
al.; Davis vs. city et al., and Saunders
vs. city et al.—Three caaes pending at
the date of my last roport, and involv
ing the legality of tbe proceedings taken
for the opening of Second and Third
Streets. These cases have been disposed
of by the abandoning of the former pro
ceedings to open theee streets and the
institution of new proceedings. Second
Btreet has since been opened under such
new proceedings, and the opening of
Third street is progressing favorably.
People vs. city and L. M. Bi^elow —
This action is brought to determine
whether or not the land upon which the
Plaza engine house was elected should
not be used for park purposes. Plaintiff
has not pressed the action and it now
stands in same condition as it did at
date of my last report. The city claims
nothing adversely to the plaintiff's con
tention.
Los Angeles Cemetery association vs.
c*Hy— This suit was brought for the pur
pose of quieting title to certain lands
claimed by plaintiff, now in the line of
First street. The action has been tried
in the superior court and was won by
tbe city during the past year. It is now
pending on appeal in the supreme court.
Los Angeles Cemetery association vs.
city, No. 2—This case was brought to
recover damages claimed to have been
caused to plaintiff's land by reason of
the grading of First street. Upon the
trial of this action the city's motion for
a non-suit was granted by the court.
City vs. Ella M. Linde et al. This I
action was brought against numerous
defendants for the purpose of ascertain
ing the damages which will be caused
to private property by the regrading of
Temple and its intersecting streets. The
defendants' demurrer to the original
complaint was sustained and the case is
now pending on demurrer to the
amended complaint.
St. Paul's school vs. city. This suit
was brought to quiet plaintiff's title to
certain land claimed by the city as a
part of Ward street. The case wm de
cided in favor of the plaintiff, but the
whole matter has since been arranged
by the council establishing new lines of
THE LOS * ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 1, 1892.
Sixth street, formerly Ward street, and
the case was settled by the plaintiff
paying the costs of the action and the
city dismissing its appeal.

suit has been tried and won by the city.
The action was brought for the fore
closure of a street lien on certain prop
erty claimed by the city as a part of
Pasadena avenue.
City of Los Angeles vs. M. D. Johnson
—This action was brought to recover
certain interest which the city claimed
was due it during tbe time Mr. Johnson
was enjoined from turning the city
money over to the City bank. The de
cision of the supreme court in the case
of Yarnell vs. Hazard being adverse to
the claim of the city that it had the
right to loan the public funds, the case
against Mr. Johnson has been dis
missed.

actions have been ins'ituted in which
the city or its officers have an interest:

Total amount of fines collected, $3723.50.
Total number of days' imprisonment im

Nothing is included in the foregoing
list except violations of city ordinances.
A considerable sum has been realized
from tines imposed for violations of the
state law, but as these offenceß are pros
ecuted by the district attorney they are
excluded from the above summary.
In addition to the foregoing, the city
attorney has prepared several hundred
ordinances, has drawn all contracts
necessary and has prepared numerous
written opinions for the council and the
officers of the city.
TRIUMPH OF THE ALTO.
She Knew the Soprano Would Have to
Get a Screen to Keep the Files Out.
"From all envy, hatred and malice,
good Lord, deliver us," slowly continued
the minister.
"Good Lord, deliver us," echoed the
congregation.
It was a day of triumph for the so
prano of the choir.
All the city folks who were passing
the summer in cool Berry ville were in
the congregation, and the alto, her
deadly enemy, had such a cold that she
could not sing a note.
So she soared aloft in highest notes of
gladsome praise, while the unfortunte
alto sat upon the back bench in the
choir loft, consumed with envy that even
her dampest tears could not quench.
"Glory be for evermore!" droned the
bass with gusto.
"Glory be for evermore!" shrilled the
tenor with fervor. '
Then the soprano took it up, took up
the glad strain, "Glory be forever
more!" Took it up and held it fondly;
took it up and played with it among the
lower notes. Snatched it again from the
deeps and ran up the vocal scale with it
in her teeth, throwing it out above the
heads of the enraptured congregation
and catching it again before it could
strike bottom, as she swept up the scale
and over the measures in triumphant
joy. It was a day of triumph for her
indeed.
Again she took up the fervid cry,
"Glory be forevermorel" Striking the
lowest note in her compass, she glorious
ly rolled up the chromatic scale with the
paean of victory—up—up —up—with her
swaying head far back, her straining
eyes half closed, her mouth round and
open with the full crescendo of the
pouring flood of melody. Up—up—up—
higher and higher, till the air quivered
in unison and the souls of the listeners
lost themselves in ecstasy. Up—up—
up
Then suddenly, without warning:
"Yeuch — yeuch! Chow-uch —uch—
uch —cho w-whickerren 1"
Her voice broke into a choking gasp,
a thin, reedy wheeze, a horrible, eye
staring gurgle—she turned black in the
face and fell backward into the choir
chains behind the green curtains in front
of the loft.
The minister glared wildly from his
place, hanging over the pulpit's edge.
Tho entire congregation rose as one
man to leap upon the pew seats and
strain into tho unknown horror with
bursting eyes.
The Press representative dashed out
the side door on a dead run for the tele
graph office to wire in the death of a
choir singer from a bursted blood vessel.
When from tho deathly stillness which
hung over the fatal loft came a hissing
whisper that stung the farthest ear dis
tinctly.
"Ah—h—! Swallowed it, did she? In
deed I I told her once that if she would
open her mouth like that in the summer
time she'd have to get a screen door to
keep the flies out! Why don't some one
chunk her in the back once or twice?"
It was the alto's voice.

People Who Did Not Kill.
The inhabitants of the Canary islands,
the Guanchss, were, it is supposed, but
the mountain shepherds of a submerged
world. Though so strong physically, the
Guanches were, nevertheless,, a very
gentle race; they rarely made- war on
one another, and when the Europeans
fefl into their hands they did not kill
them, but sent them to tend s/heepin
the mountains. So tame were the birds
in this happy land, that when, the Span
iards first landed they came and fed out
of their hands.
To kill an animal degraded a man; the
butcher was a reprieved criminal and
outcast, and lived apart, be and, his as
sistants being supported by the state.
No woman was allowed to approach the
shambles, and in such horror was killing
held by these giants that no man could
be ennobled until he had publicly de
clared that he had not been guilty of
killing any animal, not even a -goat.
Their standard of morality was high;
robbery was almost unknown among
them.—St. Louis Star Sayings.

A GARDEN OF A QUEEN.
VICTORIA HAS ONE SPOT SACRED
I FROM HER SUBJECTS.
Kngland'a Sovereign Has a Mania for
Planting Trees —A House That the
Prince of Wales Built and In Which
Many Royal Children Have Played.
! Queen Victoria considers herself really
at home in the private garden of Osborne
only. For in this little corner of the
Isle of Wight alone does the sovereign,
whose possessions cover one-seventh of
the globe, have powers absolute. Else
where, and especially in the parks of the
royal residences, she is under the re
straint of the officials of a constitutional
monarchy.
The commissioner of public buildingo
and works treats the crown as an insti
tution of which the rights are strictly
limited. Her majesty cannot cut a tree
without the consent of the proper official.
To escape this vigilance the queen has
bought in the neighborhood oi' her castle
at Osborne some acres of ground where
she may have a gardener not subject to
changes of administration.- She has
even gone so far ns to disregard for once
her position of political impartiality and
chosen a former gardener of Lord Bea
consfield, a man accustomed to the grow
ing of Tory flowers.
But any imprudences which he might
commit will not easily reach the public.
For while it is easy to get permission to
roam about the grounds of the castle,
this little garden is carefully shut off
from visitors. A correspondent of an
English paper recently had the good
fortune to get into the Swiss chalet,
which her majesty has made into a
family museum, and to walk about the
aisles of trees where each tree commem
orates an episode in the history of the
royal house and recalls a day of happi
ness or sorrow.
A short distance from the entrance to
this private garden is a wooden play
house, built with their own hands by
the Prince of Wales and the Duke of
Edinburgh in 1857. The heir to the
crown has missed his vocation. He
clearly had in him tho making of a nota
ble carpenter. Even to the present day
the prince is very proud of his work,
and whenever he visits Osborne he goes
straightway to see if the playhouse is
still standing. Not a nail has fallen,
not a plank has sprung. The house is as
solid as at first.
A HOUSE BUILT BY WALES.
In the little house are preserved the
playthings of the royal children. Each
of the children had little carriages of hie
own, and all are here preserved with the
initials of the owners' names upon them.
The Duke of Edinburgh was a jack of
all trades. He was a carpenter with his
older brother, a mason with his younger
brother, the Duke of Connaught. The
miniature fortress they built together is
still preserved in this same garden. It
is made of stone and brick, and is at
least strong enough to brave the seasons.
The princes worked under the eyes of
their father, who was trying to teach
them the art of fortification.
This fortress has undergone some as
saults. The Prince of Wales, having
his five sisters and the youngest of his
brothers under his command, attacked
its garrison, the Dukes of Edinburgh and
Connaught. Almost always the heir ap
parent carried the parapet and drove the
two dukes into a casemate, where they
had plenty of arms and whence hunger
alone conld dislodge them.
Nowadays the children of the Duchess
of Albany and of the Princess Beatrice
attack and defend the fort which their
parents, their uncles and their aunts
have so often captured with great valor
after long and glorious sieges.
The day of her oldest daughter's wed
ding Victoria took a sprig of myrtle from
the bride's bouquet and planted it in this
garden. It rooted itself so firmly that
now it is grown into a great bush. Every
time one of the 'grandchildren marries,
the myrtle bush at Osborne is called into
requisition.
MEMORIAL TREES.
Not far from the matrimonial bush is
a row of mourning trees. In February,
1862, every member of the royal family
planted a tree to perpetuate the memory
of the prince consort, who died in the
December just before. Of the eight
trees those of the Prince of Wales and
the Princess Alice have grown most
luxuriantly. A little distance away the
queen planted the parasol pine, which is
her memorial of her husband.
, In another place are the trees com
memorating marriages—the trees of the
Prince and Princess of Wales, of the
Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, of the
Duke and Duchess of Connaught, of the
Duke and Duchess of Albany and of the
Princess Beatrice and Henry of Batten
berg. It is in the shade of these trees,
whose foliage murmurs the memories of
happy times, that the queen likes to
take tea during the hot days of August.
Now it is the new generation which is
taking its turn at tree planting in this
garden devoted to royal highnesses, The
children of the Prince of Wales and of
the Duke of Edinburgh have the place
of honor. But the invading family of
Prussia casts not a little of its shade
upon soil which should remain exclusive
ly for British. Although the children
of the queen's daughters are not repre
sented, the descent of the Empress Fred
erick has taken root there. The Prin
cess Victoria of Prussia, her sister, the
Princess Sophia, and the Prince Walde
mar, who died in 1879, have each a tree.
The collection lacks nothing but the tree
of the Emperor William.—Paris Figaro.
A Big Insect.
The biggest insect of its kind in the
world is the Hercules beetle of South
Amerioa, which grows to be six inches
in length. It is said, whether truthfully
or not, that great numbers of these
creatures are sometimes seen on the
mammaea tree, rasping the rind from;
the slender branches by working around
them with their horns until they cause
the juice to flow. This juice they drink
to intoxication, and thus fall senseless
to the ground.—New York Journal. .
