AMONG THE RAILROADS.
More About the Gable and Elec
tric Roads Combine.
The Details of the Agreement Given
ia Full.
.The Bigg-eat Railroad Deal Brer Carried
Out In tbe State—A New Bond
Issue—Ballroad
Notes.
The' Herald a few days ago exclu
sively, as is ita habit with import
ant news, published the fact of a consol
idation of the electric and cable street
railway companies of this city. The
other papers copied the Herald's
story and endeavored to belittle it, but
the facts remain exactly as published
in this paper, as corroborated by tbe
following from the San Francisco Exam
iner of Monday:
The most extensive street railway
deal ever conceived in California is now
being consummated in this city.
The railroads are located in Los An
geles, but the owners are most of them
capitalists, bankers and attorneys of
San Francisco, and all the business is
being transacted here.
The deal is the result of two years of
contention. In the early part of 1890 a
corporation was organized to baild and
operate an electric railroad in Los Ange
les. It was not proposed as a scheme
hostile to the cable system already in
operation there. The promoters of the
extensive enterprise saw what they be
lieved to be .a good field for investment
and energetically took possession.
CAUSE OF THE LEGAL STRUGGLE.
The work of construction had not pro
gressed far before it was discovered
that, owing to the peculiar topography
of Los Angeles, is would be impossible
to extend the lines of the electric road
satisfactorily without traveling over
some of the franchises held by the'cable
system. According to law it bad tbe
right to use the same streets occuped by
the other roads to tbe extent of five
blocks, and the first collision between
the two companies was when the elec
tric system undertook to exercise the
right of using the streets already in
possession of the cable roads. The
struggle was bitter and protracted.
Tbe litigation on the part of the elec
tric road corporation was conducted by
the law firm of Dorn A Dorn of this
city, and resulted, a few months ago, in
a decision by the supreme court in favor
of the electric road. The first mortgage
bonds of the cable company were held
by capitalists and bankers of this city
and Chicago, and, fearing that their
securities would be impaired, they took
up the cable company's side of the liti
gation. They pronounced the electric
company's enterprise as nothing more
than a "bluff," professed to believe it
was not the intention of the company to
build a good and substantial road at all,
and resolved not to have their interests
paralyzed by any such scheme.
SEEKING A HARMONIOUS SETTLEMENT.
When it was seen that tbe electric
company was spending large amounts
of money in constructing a most com
plete railroad system, the cable car
magnates began to consider the matter
more seriously, and proposed concilia
tory measures.
The directors of the two roads con
sulted together about two months ago
in this city, and negotiations were
opened for the consolidation of the two
companies, believing that under a united
and harmonious management they
could be more profitably operated.
The agreement wae finally reached
last Monday by which all the property
of the electric company and the first
mortgage bonds oi the cable company,
amounting in tbe aggregate to more
than (3,000,000, were transferred to
John McKee, cashier of Tallant & Co.'s
bank, and D. S. Dorn, of the law firm of
Dorn & Dorn.
THE NEW BOND'ISSUE.
A new bond issue on the whole sys
tem, amounting to $3,000,000, was thus
guaranteed, akd tbe interests of both
parties harmoniously consolidated. To
seal the union even more completely a
number of prominent bondholders of
the cable company were placed in tbe
directory of the new company, and the
roads are now running along under one
management, and the citizens of Los
Angeles are enjoying the privileges of
transfers to all parts of the city for a
single fare.
The trust deed of the transfer to
Messrs. McKee and Dorn was put on
record on Thursday, and all the parties
to the ti ansaetiou, officers and trustees
of tbe new company, are now in tbe
city preparing to make tbe exchange of
the old bonds for the new. The deal
was completed Saturday.
The new company is a very strong one
and represents a capital of fully $5,000,
--000. To make it Still stronger the stock
holders have provided for the payment
of the interest on the bonds for two
years in advance, so that the income,
meanwhile, may be used in extending
and perfecting the system. It is be
lieved that the bonds will command a
premium right from the start.
THE PARTIES TO THE DEAL.
Among the stockholders of the com
pany are tbe following well-known
banking concerns and capitalists: Bank
of California, William Alvord and
Thomas Brown, president and cashier
of the Bank of California; ex-Senator
James G. Fair, the Pacific Boiling mills,
the San Francisco Savings union, A.
Borel, John McKee, cashier of Tallant
& Co.; Charles Mayne, John D. Fry,
president of the Safe Deposit and Trust
company; the Pacific bank, R. H. Mc-
Donald, president of the Pacific bank;
D. S. Dorn, J. F. Bass, Samuel Miller,
Moses Sherman, J. M. C. Marble. Lovell
White, J. F. Crank and Frank V. Me
' Donald.
The president of the new company is
General Moses H. Sherman of Los An
feles; secretary, Frank V. McDonald of
an Francisco; attorneys, Dorn & Dorn.
[Tbe Examiner omits from the list of
parties to the deal tbe name of Mr. J. A.
Muirofthis city, who, while not act
ively -engaged in the operation of the
system, is the man who induced tbe
prime movers in the enterprise to come
to Los Angeles, and who undoubtedly
should and will be in the new directory.]
THAT SALT LAKE KOAD.
The Herald is in receipt of the follow
ing pointed letter on the Salt Lake road
proposition: '
Editors Herald: As one of your
constant readers, I am glad to flee the
Herald foremost in advocating and
arousing onr people op to the necessity
of assisting in tbe building of a railroad
to Salt Lake City. The Herald has
■track the keynote of onr future pros
perity. Why should not our moneyed
men show some interest and help along
this important matter? It will pay
them larger interest on their money
than they can possibly receive on any
other investment. People are all cry
ing, we must wait until after the world's
fair before things will begin to move
again. I say, Mr. Editor, there is no
necessity of waiting until after the fair
if our moneyed men will come to tbe
rescue and form an effective organiza
tion, and with a determination to win
push tbe toad to completion. There is
no one thing that is so important to this
city and Southern California as this con
nection with Salt Lake City.
This organization need not put up 20
Eer cent of the cost of the road, per
aps it could be done with 10 per cent,
and eastern railroad men stand ready to
put up the balance. The first thing an
eastern railroad man will say to you is:
How much stock will Los Angeles and
Southern California take in the enter
prise. They want us (and with reason),
if we have faith in the building of the
road, to assist in the undertaking. San
Francisco's monied men are moving to
get the road, and as the Herald says,
we will be in great danger of being side
tracked if we do not soon move in this
matter. Let our monied men come to
gether and survey tbe field and organ
ize tbe road at once. What better
time to do so than at this time, when
Mr. R. G. Kerens, the head man of the
Terminal railroad, will be here in a few
days; censult with him and determine
what can be done to forward the build
ing of tbe Salt Lake road at once. The
road will have all the traffic it can
handle from the day it is completed. It
will prove to be the finest investment
our people can make and at tbe same
time make Los Angeles a great city.
Who will move in this matter?

BACK TAXES.
In department threo yesterday, says
the San Diego Union, Colonel Hotch
kiss, for the Southern Pacific Railroad
company, argued the demurrer before
Judge Pierce, in the suit of the county
against the railroad for the recovery of
back taxes. It will be remembered the
suit was commenced in February, 1891,
Dietrict Attorney Johnstone Jones, with
N. H. Conklin, associate counsel, acting
in behalf of the county. It was an ac
tion to recover $28,000 delinquent taxes,
due in 1887 and 1888. The total
amount now, with interest and
penalties, is over $54,000. The court
granted the defendant thirty days
within which to file abrief. Tbe South
ern Pacific company resists payment on
the ground that the collection of taxes
from a railroad company is unconstitu
tional and that the claim is barred by
the statute of limitation. This is-one
of the suits pending in every county
penetrated by tbe Southern Pacific,
amounting to a total of upwards of
$1,000,000. Whether the county wins
or not, tbe case will certainly be ap
pealed to the supreme court of the state,
and possibly of tbe United States. In
the latter event it will be several years
before any money can be received by the
county, even if decided in its favor.
There has been some talk about the
railroad company compromising the
matter, but as yet it has not taken any
definite shape.
SAN DIEGO STILL MAD.
President Manvel, Hon. George R.
Peck and General Manager Wade of the
Santa Fe met in the mayor's office yes
terday morning with the executive com
mittee of the citizens' railroad and im
provement committee of 100. The prin
cipal subjects tor discussion were the
Temecula cafion route, and the proposed
suit of the city to forfeit the subsidies
granted tbe Southern California road.
With reference to tbe Temecula cafion
route the argument on both sides was
similar to that of a conference held on
the same subject last September, the
committee urging upon tbe company the
necessity of the immediate reconstruc
tion and operation of a line to the north
ern portion of the country, as San Diego
is now losing tbe trade of its best grain
section. President Manvel replied by
showing that the company was not in a
financial condition at present to repair
the line. When pressed for some ap
proximate date when the line would be
re-opened he would make no definite re
ply and said he could give no assurance
that it would be done within the next
two years.
There was some controversy over the
suit of the city against the company, the
latter expressing no uneasiness over the
result, but was evidently desirous of
having it delayed for some little time, as
it might possibly interfere with or re
tard the solution of a financial problem
on which the company was now work
ing. The discussion was quite spirited
at times, and there was no misunder
standing as to the meaning of each
one's remarks. The meeting resulted in
nothing definite. In the afternoon the
committee held a session, and it is un
derstood that the members favor a vig
orous prosecution of tbe suit. President
Manvel and party left in tbe afternoon
for tbe north.
NOTES.
President Manvel of the Santa Fe

THE LOS AISTxELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, JTJPNE 29, 1892.
A House at Vernon Eansacked
on Monday.
The Burglars Make a Rich Hani of
Sirs. Maher Was Gone Only a Few Min
utes, But It Was Long Bnongh.
The Articles Taken.
A Clue.
Thieves made a rich haul of jewelry at
the residence of William Maher, at Ver
non, at noon on Monday. Mr. Maher
resides a short distance from the South
ern California pipe works, and between
11 and 12 o'clock Mrs. Maher went out
to pay a visit to a neighbor. When she
returned she found the house in confu
sion. Trunks bad been broken open,
bureau drawers ransacked as if the house
had been shaken by an earthquake. As
Mrs. Maher had only been absent for a
short period, the thief or thieves must
have worked very rapidly.
Upon making an examination she dis
covered that the thieves had captured
a valuable ladies' gold watch and chain,
the watch bearing tbe name "Ada"
engraved in it. One pair of plain gold
wire bracelets, a gold chain, a gold pad
lock, a gentleman's gold ring set with
six diamonds in which the letter "W"
was engraved, a lot of trinkets and a
sum of money.
Mr. Maher at once communicated the
facts of the robbery to tbe sheriff's
office and the chief of police. It is
supposed-that the robbery was com
mitted by two men, shabbily dressed,
who passed along near the bouse bead
ing toward Redondo.
WELL SETTLED.
Tbe Conditions of the Outfall Sewer Set
tlement With Mr. Freeman.
The Hbkald is glad to learn that the
dispute between Mr. Freeman and the
city council over the right of way for tbe
outfall sewer has been amicably settled.
The basis of the compromise is as fol
follows: The city will accept a line
three-quarters of a mile south of the
former route through the town of Ingle
wood, and will avoid as far as possible
Mr. Freeman's house and the Centinela
springs. Mr. Freeman, on his part, will
convey to the city a strip of land on the
Pacific ocean one mile and a quarter
long and three-eighths of a mile wide,
on which ocean frontage the sewage can
be deposited without danger of suits for I
damages by adjoining land owners.
He will also deed to tbe city
a right of way fifteen feet
wide and a right of way for their lateral
sewers, each one and a half miles in
length; and will grant them valuable
privileges in tbe way of dumping
grounds and so forth. While the pro
posed route will cost $36,000 more than
the original route, this amount will be
more than counterbalanced by tbe ad
vantage the city will receive. The cost
of the laterals will be reduced $37,000.
The city will receive 200 acres of land
worth $20,000, and will also be saved the
expense of the suit against the thirty
landowners at Inglewood, whose lands
were crossed by the first line. The costs
of this suit, which the city would nave
to pay in any event, would be consider
able, perhaps $3000. Each one of the
thirty defendants would get a verdict
for Borne damages, and these damages
would probably foot up $25,000,
or more. Then there are seven or
eight land owners whose lots were
crossed by tbe first line who were not
sued, owing to the fact that they had
not recorded their deeds or contracts for
purchase. These people would have
bad to be sued, and with this suit and
the suit against the other thirty, a de
lay of eight or ten months was certain.
The appeal of Mr. Freeman to the su
preme court would probably not be
settled in much less than a year. The
route last selected is much better than
the original in every way. It is much
more direct and brings several hundreds
of acres of land under the ditch which
could not have been irrigated by the
first sewer.
The saving of the delay of even three
or four months is worth more to the
city than the extra cost of the sewer,
even if no other advantages were gained.
We think that the city has scored a
great victory in tbe settlement of this
important matter, and we hope tbey
will proceed at once with work so as to
give as sewers as speedily as possible.
Under the new circumstances the bonds
will stand a little chance to be voted for
by a majority, and, on the contrary, we
do not believe tbey would have carried
with all these unsettled legal difficulties
in the way.
SHE WANTS A VERDICT.
Mrs. Stephenson's Salt for Damages
Against tn« Southern Pacific.
The suit of Sallie D. Stephenson
against the Southern Pacific Railroad
company to recover $5000 damages is on
trial again before Judge Clark of tbe
superior court. This case was tried be
fore and went up to the supreme court.
Mrs. Stephenson claims damages by
reason of being thrown violently from a
street-car by reason of tbe fright of the
horses at an approaching engine. The
case will take up several days' time.
As a result of her injuries Mrs. Steph
enson's hearing, sight and sense of

POLICE COURT NOTES.
Little Cases Which Came Up Yester
day.
Julia Butler of Date street was ar
rested yesterday on complaint of Joseph
Blow, who charges the woman with
cruelty to animals. He alleges that she
threw boiling water on a mule, scalding
the poor animal in a terrible manner.
The defendant will be tried today before
Justice Austin.
Justice Owens yesterday found John
Nelson not guilty of battery, but guilty
of exhibiting a deadly weapon. Nelson
threatened a woman on Alamo street
with a 1 shotgun. He will be sentenced
today.
Justice Austin fined a solitary drunk
yesterday. He also tried a civil case,
that of A. C. Broderson vs. W. B. Bar
ber. The plaintiff had bought a claim
against Barber from a man named Spill
man. The latter had dug a ditch Mr
Barber on the San Fernando rancho,
the agreement being that one-half of the
contract price wae to be paid when tbe
work was completed, and the balance
when water ran through the ditch. The
first installment had been paid, but
Barber claims that the ditch was so
badly made that the water never ran in
it. He repudiated the claim, and
Brodersen sues to recover. A lot of wit
nesses were examined in the case. A
decision will be given today.
The case against Weisendanger, who
is charged with obtaining money under
false pretenses, has been continued for
examination until July 20th.
