THE COUNCIL. Proceedings of the City Law Makers. Discussion of the Horizontal Tax Matter. A Great Amount of Business Trans acted Yesterday. Some Salaries Increased—The Health Of ficer Given Some Assistants—A Veto From tho Mayor. Motions Made. City council met yesterday morning •s usual, all members being present. The principal pow-wow during the day was the discussion of the horizontal tax refunding, which is reported below. It was at one time supposed, during the session, that that troublesome matter was finally disposed of, but with the lack of determination, or rather termin ation, which characterizes the council, the question was once more resurrected, and was made a special order for the next regular session. OPENING WARD STREET. The opening of Ward street from Pearl street to the west line of the Gal pin tract, came up for consideration, and an ordinance for the opening thereof was ordered. The existing street commis- Bioners were elected to do the work of assessment. The proposition to open the street west of the Galpih tract was referred to the board of public works. ZANJA COMMITTEE'S REPORT. The zanja committee reported recom mending that tbe bid of Peter Keenan for constructing flume and cement pipe on Alameda street for 33 cents per lineal foot for wooden flume and 98 cents per lineal foot for cement pipe and $47 each for wells, in accordance with specifica tions, be accepted, it being understood that the old cement pipe and wood in the old flume is the property of the city. It is also recommended that the city advertise for proposals to purchase the old lumber in the said flume. A SALARY RAISE. The city attorney presented an ordi nance providing for a raise in the sal aries of certain city employes. Clerk Luckenbach in the city clerk's office is raised from $80 to $86 per month, and Clerk T. Smith in the office of the city clerk and auditor generally is raised a like amount. The ordinance was not for a general revision of salaries, but for a correction \of some few salaries which were cut too low in the previous ordinance. The difference will not make over $1,000 per year. Mr. Bees moved that street foremen be raised from $2.25 to $2.60 per day. The motion was carried by 5 yeas and 4 nays. In the same salary raising ordinance Was a provision for one secretary for the police department at $75 a month. This clause was changed so as to make the secretary of a patrolman with an allow ance of $5 a month extra. In this form the clause was passed. CITY ATTORNEY'S REPORT. In accordance with your instructions I have drawn a lease between the city and George E. Milliken for the water of zanja No. 6-1, to be used by him to fur nish power for his ice works on Ann Btreet. Referred to the zanja committee. Afterward returned and lease approved for three years. I have also prepared and present herewith an ordinance for the appoint ing of commissioners for the opening of W'eßt Sixth street, formerly Ward Btreet. Ordinance adopted, and Mcll moil, Davidson and Moriarity appointed commisßioners. I have investigated the franchise of the Main Street and Agricultural Park railroad and find that the first fran chise was granted in 1886 for a period of thirty years for a street railroad, to be propelled by horsea, with the privilege of substituting cable or electricity. The franchise is for the following route: 9r6m Main and Temple down Main to "Washington, along Washington to Figueroa, Figueroa to Jefferson, Jeffer son to Main, Main to Washington. This franchise was amended in 1890 by a franchise for fifty years over the same route, for horses, cable or electricity. I am of the opinion that the failure to maintain and operate any portion of the road for which a franchise has been aecured, will be sufficient legal reason for forfeiting the whole franchise, pro vided, that by such failure to operate, tbe public are in anyway discommoded. Any action to forfeit the franchise will have to be taken by the attorney-gen eral. I recommend that the company be notified that the city does not recog nize its right to forfeit or surrender a portion of its franchise. Referred to Messrs. Rees, Nickell and Tufts to con fer with the railroad company. In the matter of the petition of G. U. Brubaker and others, complaining of a anisance at a point near Pearl and Boston streets, I retnrn said petition and ask that the same be sent to the board of health for a careful investigation and re port as to the facts. Adopted. I submit herewith several deeds for the right of way for an outfall sewer to the ocean. Theße deeds very nearly complete the right of way to a point near Inglewood, and I advise that they be accepted and ordered recorded imme diately. Adopted, and clerk instructed to record the deeds. PROPOSALS. Proposals for removing the roof of the Macy-etreet bridge were presented as follows: J. E. Frick would do it for the lumber and $36. Sturdevant & Potter offered to do it for the lumber and $'40. Peter Keenan for $66. Conrad Sheerer wanted the lumber and $35. George Armitage wanted the lumber aud $50. George H. Williams offered to take off the roof for tbe lumber and give the city $4. D. F. Donegan offered to do the job for the lumber and give the city $11. He was awarded tbe contract. Council then adjourned until 2 o'clock. THE HORIZONTAL RAISE. When the afternoon session was called, seven members of the council were present. The first business was the discuseion of the question whether any taxes collected under tbe horizontal raise should be refunded. The city at torney, to whom the matter had been referred, reported as follows: In regard to the petition of certain THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 16, 1892 property owners to be reimbursed for taxes paid on the so-called "horizontal raise" of 18S9-90,1 find that all of the amounts paid were paid before the tax became delinquent. It has been de cided by our supreme court several times that such payments are not made under duress even if a protest is made at the time. lam of the opinion that these claims are also barred by the statute of limitation, action not having been brought on them within two years after the right of action accrued. For these reasons I am of the opinion that the claims cannot be legally enforced against tbe city. Mr. Rhodes was in favor of refunding in spite of this opinion, if there was any way in which it could be done. Mr. Reee said, that though the city attorney declared tbat the claimants cannot legally collect from the city, he considered it the moral duty of council to return the money. Mr. McGarry thought tbe city ought not to take advantage of a technical ity. Mr. Nickell—Because we didn't vote money to carry the case to the su preme court, council did not thereby ac knowledge that the tax was illegal. I think council had a right to levy the tax, and am not in favor of trying to get around the difficulties in order to pay $1400 or $1600. Mr. Innes—Unless we have a legal right we cannot pay it back. This thing is a legacy to us from a former council, and moral right or wrong has nothing do with it. Try it in the courts! , Major Bonsall—This council has re lieved itself of any responsibility in the matter by referring it to the city attor ney. The place for this matter iB in the courts. I move that the city attor ney's report be adopted. All members were now present, and Mr. Rees, who iB personally interested, not voting, there was a tie vote of four ayes and four nays, and the motion was lost. The city attorney's report was then filed. Mr. Rees moved that the petitions for a refunding be granted. There was again a tie vote, the motions were de clared lost, and the petitions were filed. VICTOR AVENUE SEWER. The next special order was the hear ing of parties against tbe construction of a sewer on Victor avenue. A protest was read which had been filed by P. rseaudry and others, and several pro testants appeared. On Mr. Alvord's motion the protest was denied. ■ IT WILL NOT DOWN. Mr. Innes now moved to reconsider the vote on the horizontal raise peti tions, and the motion prevailed by a vote of 5 ayes and 3 noes. Mr. Lee, representing Col. G. Wiley Wells, counsel fjr petitioners, explained that Colonel Wells was prevented by court business from being present, but desired to address the council on the question at the next regular meeting. The resurrected matter was then made a special order for the next session. MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR. Mayor Hazard sent in the following message: Accompanying the ordinance permit ting the owners on Boston Btreet to grade that Btreet by private contract is a request from your honorable body for me not to sign the ordinance until the property owners on that street should pay the expenses incurred by the city under the general Btreet law, which pro ceeding has been abandoned. I have now withheld the ordinaace for one week and no payment has been made. It does seem to me that it would hardly be fair to compel the property owners to pay these expenses, as they were incurred, not by the unanimous re quest of the property owners, but a pro test representing nearly, if not quite, one-half thereof was interposed by them and overruled by your honorable body, and the work ordered done notwith standing the protest. It would seem particularly hard that those who pro tested against the proceedings whereby this expense was incurred, should now be required to pay their proportion of it before they are permitted to improve their property. A precedent requiring property owners to pay the incidental expenses in a proposed public work be fore they will be permitted to abandon it and do the work in a different man ner, should only be invoked where the property owners are practically unani mous in favor of the work which is de sired to be abandoned, and not in a case where they were divided, as in the pres ent instance. If in the judgment of your honorable body the facts in this case justify us in refusing the property owners the right to have this work done by private con tract, I would request that it Bhould be manifested in an order directing the re turn to your honorable body of the ordi nance without signature, and in the absence of such an order I will approve the ordinance, as private contracts are entered into to do the work on the start, and the contractors are desirous of pro ceeding with the work. Henry T. Hazard. The contractor offered to pay the ex penses and the matter was thereby dis posed of. AID FOR THE HEALTH OFFICER. An ordinance, providing for several assistants in tbe health department, was taken up from the committee of the whole. It allows the department one chief sanitary inspector at $70 per month, two sanitary inspectors at $00 per month, and one keeper at the city, pest house at $60 per month. Passed. TWENTY-SEVENTH STREET GRADING. An ordinance permitting the property owners of Twenty-seventh street, be tween Main street and Grand avenue, to grade the street and construct cement curb and sidewalks, was passed. MOTIONS OF CODNCILMEN. Mr. Summerland moved that a foot walk be laid on the north side of Macy street. Board of public works. Mr. Nickell moved that the city clerk be instructed to notify Contractor Crow ley that" he must finish the Alhambra avenue fill at once. There has been a delay of five months and the fill is still not acceptable. Passed. Mr. Rees moved that hydrants be placed at Brooklyn avenue and Mott Btreet, and at the intersection of Michi gan avenue with Mott street, Saratoga street and Cemetery street. Referred to the committee on Fire and Water. Mr. Alford moved that the property owners on Newton street, between Cen tral avenue and Tennessee street, be al lowed to grade and turnpike tbe street at their own expense. Passed. Mr. Innes moved that the city attor ney be asked to answer the following two questions: First, is there any legal difficulty which would prevent the city from incurring an indebted ness exceeding $2,000,000 for tbe purpose of purchasing a water plant? Second, is there any contract at present existing which would prevent tbe city from owning and running its own water plant? Passed. Mr. McGarry moved that the street superintendent be instructed to put sev eral loads of gravel on Seventh street near the bridge. • SUPPLY COMMITTEE. The 'supply committee recommended that all the bids for lumber be rejected, and that tbe city clerk be instructed to readvertise for bids. Passed. CITY ENGINEER'S REPORT. Ordinance of intention to construct a sewer on Rockwood avenue, from Union avenue to the Arroyo de los Reyes. Passed. Ordinance of intention to construct a sewer on Belmont avenue, from Council Btreet to Temple street. Passed. Ordinance of intention to grade and cement-curb Thompson street, from Twenty-third street to Adams Btreet. Board of public works.

Ordinance of intention to change and establish the grade of Second street from Olive street to Grand avenue. Passed. Ordinance of intention to change and establish the grade of Fourth street from Grand avenue to Hope street. Board of public works. Ordinance of intention to establish the grade of Santee street from Ninth street to the O. W. Childs tract, and from Washington to Twenty-First street. Passed. MUNICIPAL REPORTS. The special committee on municipal reports made report recommending that the bill of R. Y. Mcßride to print 2000 copies, at $3.35 per page, be accepted, and contract awarded. PETITIONS AND PROTESTS. The following petitions and protests were read and referred to the several committees: A. Workman complains of an ordi nance now being advertised by the city to change the names of certain streets on Boyle Heights, and alleges that "It would seem as if it was entirely for per sonal motives and not for the best in terest of the people." He also wants the name of Boyle Heights changed to Brooklyn Heights "or some other re spectable name," also to change the name of Boyle avenue to Lopez street. J. F. Hamer et al. want a crosswaik across Temple street on the east line of Brent street. Atonia McAvila et al. want Brooklyn avenue, between Cummings and State streets placed in repair. The chamber of commerce sent a re quest for an ordinance to be passed that would compel pawnbrokers, secondhand dealers and the like to expose in show windows the wares they come in posses sion of from unknown Dersons, also to take a description of the person and hold the Esme; this with a view of prevent ing many of the thefts now going on in this city. John D. Bicknell et al. want Broad way, between Second and Ninth streets, widened to ninety feet. J. N. Van Nuya wants city tax sale of the easterly five feet of lot 21, block V, Aliso tract, declared void. Mary H. Banning protests against the work of improving Ninth street, be tween Spring and Broadway, at present. George L. Arnold et al. want Soto street, between Brooklyn avenue and Sheridan street, graded. ~D. Freeman et al. want the water which accumulates at Sixth and Spring streets conducted off by a conduit. A. Bixel et al. want Fourth street, from Lucas avenue to Figueroa street, graded, curbed and graveled. D. W. Field, administrator of the es tate of Barnum Blake, protests against the opening of Sixth Btreet, west of Pearl. Harper & Reynolds want permission to place a scale in the asphalt sidewalk in front of their premises on Los Angeles street. Council adjourned at 4:30. sine committed Suicide. Mrs. F. 0. Boe, at Watklns, left this letter: "My husband—Forgive me if I cause you trou ble, but I suffer so. You do not know what these long, wakeful, wretched nights are to me, and I am so tired, darling—the pain will nev<!rbe better. It is not easy to take my own lite, but I have bet n tick so long. Good-bye. my husband. I love you—your wi'e." This is hut one of thousands that give up, instead of using Dr. Miles' Bes'orative Nervine, and being speedily cured of their wretchedness. Go to -C. H.
