CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
FRIDAY JULY 3, 1574. LOCAL BREVITIES. The Mohongo will sail for San Francisco Sunday next. The Postofflce will be opened from 3 to 4 o'clock f. K. to-morrow. There is a messasre at the Western Union Telegraph Office for Nerio Va lenzuela. Remember that Ihe auction sale of San Fernando property conies oil* at Noyes <fc Durfee's to-day. The! ■Thirty-Eights'.' held a meeting last night and arranged the details of their part in the celebration to-nior row. The Calathumpians met in solemn conclave last night and arranged some fearful and awful things for the mor row. There were shipped over the Peo ple's Wharf, at San Luis Obispo, from the 24th day of March up to June 27th, 8,378 bales of wool of three hundred pounds each. Jose Maria Villalobos was arrested yesterday for stealing seventeen dol lars' worth of horse-shoe nails from Frank 'Cole. His trial will come off at 1 o'clock this afterr.o >n before Jus tice Gray. Mr. A. G. Packard of La Cronica leaves to-day by the Coast Stage Line for Santa Barbara, where he expects to spend about two in a visit among his friends. We wish him all the enjoyment that the law allows for a newspaper man. Eugene Meyer returned to this city yesterday from his visit to Sacramento and San Francisco where he has been killing two birds with one slone, and taking in business and pleasure. H<> has purchased his second stock < f Summer goods and now proposes to drive trade. The following Is the list of passen gers who sailed from San Francisco July Ist, per steamer Los Angeles, for Wilmington: F. M. Egleston, Mis. Perkins, C. L. Davis, John Rowan and wife, E. Welch, Captain Burrowes, A. K. Johiuon, J. H. EIIIS, J. Mellon, and 15 Chinese. Mr. J. B. Painter, of the firm of J. B. Painter «& Co., of San Francisco, was In the city yesterday, and gave us a pleasant call. He, with his son, visits Southern California as far as San Diego for health, pleasure and business. He is well pleased with the appearance of our city. We learn that Thomas Rowen, of the American Bakery, proposes to furnish gratuitously all the bread needed at the dinner given by the ladies of the M. E. Church to-morrow, and roast all their meats free of charge. Such acts of gemrodty for such a worthy object are dete. ving of mention. The members of the Common Coun cil did one thing to their credit, yes terday, which was not recorded in the minutes of their session. After voting down the appropriation of $150 for the celebration fund, they made up a purse to which every Councilman except one contributed, amounting nearly to the sum required on the part of the city. This shows the right spirit in public officers, when they will con tribute from their own pockets rather than be under the imputation of squandering the people's money. The parties who were arraigned be fore the United States Commissioner on the charge of cutting timber from public lands were yesterday bound over to await the action of the Grand Jury. There is a determination on the part of the United States author ities to put a stop to the lawlessness which has been prevalent in this mat ter of trespass for the past year or more. Still, Mr. James, the Register, informs that it is not designed to pros ecute any more than what is abso lutely required to enforce the law in this respect. While the authorities do not wish to institute an undue persecution upon settlers, still they have foreborne now beyond the limits of their instructions, and they must do their duty. We translate the following from La Cronica of July Ist: Don Miguel Gutierrez, of Santa Bar bara, is so ill that he is not expected to live. Mariano Soto has been arrested; he is accused of stealing cattle in San Bernardino county. We are happy to learn that the law suit which wasabout to be commenced between A. F. Coronel and F. P. Sa bichi, has been amicably settled. "Don Jose Miguel de Celis has not yet i-tirted for Bilboa, Spain; urgent business still detains him, but he will soon be ready to start on his journey. The light-house on Point San Pedro will be finishe 1 for the Fourth of July; it is two hundr.'d feet above the level ofthe sea. The machinist who will arrange the apparatus arrived on the Kalorama. Our ollice was yesteruay honored by the presence of Messrs. Levy and Dye, of the Plru Mining Company; these placer mines, located in Ventura county, are said to be very rich. There is an abundance of water, and a gootl road to them. The City Council refuseiTto contrib ute to the celebration of the Fourth of July. We would like to know why they could not be as liberal and pat riotic as the majority of our citizens. There was also some opposition to the appointment of a City Physician. A correspondent writes from Mon terey thus: "Forty Chinese arrived on the steamer Santa Cruz, destined to work on the railroad, ami a vessel loaded with material for the construc tion of cars, etc., has also arrived. Our wharf is already three hundred feet long, and as soon as it is finished the pile-driver will be taken to the river, over which a bridge will soon be built. Our coal mines are doing well, and everything is flourishing in our county." Another correspondent, from Lower California, expresses himself in a very sensible manner in regard to the po litical affairs of that Territory, lie says: " With tho arrival of a Judge of the First Instance and other public personages from the seat of Govern ment, a complete change will be expe rienced, as well in our department of justice as in our other branches of the Government. Being, as we are, iso lated and in a thinly populated Terri tory, it may sound strange that for a year and a half we have not had to chronicle a single instance where out laws have been violated; and all this is owing to the sound common sense and love of justice displayed by the Governor of this Territory during the time he has held his office." Map showing the geographical ami commercial position of Los Angeles; the system of Trans (iontinental Railroads on the Pa cific ('oast; the impassable ranges of mountains parallel to the coast north and south of San Gorgonio Pass—the only natural pass iv the mountains from Lower California to Oregon; showing also the largest and richest mining region in Ihe world tributary to Los Angeles; showing the proposed railroads to the rich mines of Cerro Gordo and to Salt Lake; also tho thirty fifth and thirty-second parallel routes and their junction at Al buquerque, as proposed by Col. Scott. The names of the follow ing important places in the coun ty are omitted from the map for want of space: Anaheim, popu lation, 1,500; San Gabriel, SfbUf El Monte, 100: Spadra, 50; Gal latin, 100; Santa Ana, 50; West minster, 50; Compton, 50; San Fernando, 50; Florence, 50; Tus tin City, 50. These are each the nucleus of a rich farming section. It Is plain to be seen that Los Angeles county is the represent ative county oi' Southern Califor nia, and the emporium of Los Angeles county and Southern California is Los Angeles City, centrally located therein ; also cent rally located in the best val ley on the Globe. Common Council Proceedings. The Council met at the usual hour yesterday afternoon. Present, a full Board. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. The min utes of the special sessions, held June 20th and 30th, were also approved. A report from the City Attorney was presented in reference to the pe tition of Mr. F. Carpenter, complain ing of nuisance caused by the curve of the Spring and Sixth street railroad, at the corner of Spring and First streets. The report stated that the curve could not be laid in any other manner than as it now is; that the manager of the railroad was desirous of meeting the Mayor and Common Council, at any time named, to con vey them over the entire length of the road, meeting each of the com plainants personally, and he was cer tain that an amicable adjustment of difficulties could be made. The report was placed on file, and upon motion it was decided that the Council will accept the invitation to ride over the line of railroad, running Monday morning at 10 o'clock as the time. A report from the City Treasurer, for the quarter ending June 30th, was presented, placed on file and ordered published. [The report appears in another place.] A report from the City Surveyor, of public work done during the week, was presented and placed on file. The Committee on Zanjas then pre sented the following report: 7'o (he Hon. the Mayor and Common Council of (he City of Los Angeles : GENTLEMEN!—Your Committee on Zanjas, with the City Attorney, City Surveyor and Zanjero, according to instructions received from your hon orable body, visited the Los Feliz Rancho yesterday and found over two thirds of the water taken out of the canal and reservoir ditch on Los Feliz Rancho, and that the lessees of the rancho irrigate therewith. The lessee informed us that he had the authority of the proprietor of the rancho to use as much water as he desired in culti vating his crops. 'Ihe canal and res ervoir ditch, above where it is tapped on the Los Feliz Rancho is full to its utmost capacity. All of which is respectfully sub mitted. w. H. Workman, ) Eulooio F. de Celis, > Com. Julian A. Chavis, J Wm. MOORE, City Surveyor. The report was placed on file. The committee to whom was re ferred the petition of the Library As sociation, reported against accepting the donation of books and fixtures as tendered, and stated as a reason there for that matter according to previous decision will be submitted to the peo ple at the next municipal election, and it was not thought advisable to thus forestall the public action. A petition from Mrs. E. Wisbecker was presented, representing that she is the owner of a house on the west side of Alameda street, and has built a frame kitchen with a brick chimney, which is all completed except doors and windows. She has been notified to discontinue work on the building, as the house is within the established lire limits. The petitioner prays for permission to complete her building, as it is so far removed from any other house that there is no danger of fire. Referred to the Committee on Fire and Water by the following vote: Ayes, DeCelis, Valdez, Huber, Work man, Chavis, Sabichi. Noes —Dock- weiler, Gerkins, Mascarel and Beau dry. A petition was presented from Car men Barreras praying for a quit-claim deed from the city for property now in her possession. Referred to the Com mittee on Lands. A petition was presented from E. E. Hewitt, Superintendent of the Los Angeles Division of the Southern Pa cific Railroad, praying that Mr. John Wilson be appointed a special police man to do duly at the railroad depot in the city, the said special police man's wages to be paid by the railroad company. Praying, further, in the interest of the traveling public that an ordinance be passed making it un lawful for any hackman, hotel-runner, or other person to interfere with the free movements of passengers by ply ing their occupation on the cars; and, further, that it be made unlawful for any person to obstruct sidewalks or gangways leading to cars with hacks, omnibuses, stages, or other vehicles. Referred to the Committee on Police, with instructions to act in conjunction with the City Attorney and draw up an ordinance in accordance with the requests of petitioner. By permission, General Baldwin addressed the Council on the subject of the water privileges now in dispute on the Feliz ranch, north of the city. He wished to avoid any litigation in the matter; thought that the right to the use of water on the rancho was in disputably established by reason of long continued privilege. By an out lay of fifteen or twenty thousand dol lars the ditch and reservoir could be increased so as to accommodate fully not only the people in the city, but those living south beyond the city limits. Iff ' oichi, from the Committee MAP OF OUR BACK COUNTRY. appointed to investigate the rights of the city to the water in question, re ported that lie had examined the old records and had discovered some very important documents; was not pre pared, however, to furnish a formal report. On motion, the City Attor ney was added to the committee. Mr. Workman stated that it was a general desire that the city contribute something towards the Fourth of July celebration, aud moved that a sum not exceeding one hundred and fifty dol lars be appropriated to cover any defi ciency in the fund for that purpose. Mr. Huber was iv favor of making the limit two hundred dollars. Mr. Beaudry was opposed to making any appropriation whatever; thought such proceeding would be illegal and unwarranted. , The vote on Mr. Workman's motion stood as follows: Ayes —De Celis, Huber, Gerkens, Workman, Chavis. Noes —Dockweiler, Valdez, Mascarel, Beaudry, Sabichi. The vote being a tie, was declared lost. Mr. Dockweiler called the attention of the Council to tho fact that Mr. Harris has not received his pay for services during the month of May, the Mayor having refused to sign the war rant for the same according to vote of the Council. It was decided that the matter was now beyond the power of the Council, and that Mr. Harris' only recourse was through legal action against the Mayor. Mr. Workman moved that the Clerk be instructed to publish notices of in tention to grade and improve certain streets, as already voted. Carried. A petition from W. I. Bland was presented making application for the position of superintendent of chain gang. Referred to the Committee on Public Works. The subject of the pending law-suit with the proprietors of the Los Feliz Rancho was then taken up ami dis cussed quite fully. Mr. Workman moved that the City Attorney be al lowed a clerk to assist him (hiring the trial. Carried. A bill of $13 00 was presented by the Zanjero for repairs on the woolen mill ditch, etc. On motion it was placed with previously audited ac counts, and ordered to be paid. Moved that the clerk be instructed to notify Messrs Sacriste & Co., that they will be required to pay their one half of the expenditures on the woolen mill ditch at once. Carried. Mr. Beaudry moved that the City At torney be instructed to serve an in junction upon a party who is building his fence within the line of New High street. Carried. On motion, the City Clerk was or dered to notify the water company that a hydrant near Judge O'Melve ney's house is.damaged and needs im mediate repairing. An appropriation of $200 was made for the cleaning and repairing of zan jas. The Council then adjourned. Great Sale of Town Lots. To-day parties desiring to purchase property in the new town of Ban Fer nando will have an opportunily of do ing so on terms more reasonable than will be offered hereafter. Noyes & Durfec will commence selling these lots at auction this morning and will continue the sale until purchasers are satisfied. Yesterday Senator Maclay received orders from San Francisco, telegraphed from parties in San Fran cisco and Watsonville, to reserve three whole blocks or them, and one man arrived last night who had rid den hard all day in order to be present at the sale. We may add that all lots not sold to-day will be sold in San Francisco on the 20th inst., so that this will be the only opportunity our citizens will have to purchase lots here. San Fernando is a thriving place, located in the center of a rich agricultural district and will always tie a desirable locality for garden homes. A Suggestion. As the line of the procession on the Fourth will be through a dusty part of the city, we suggest that the water be turned upon the streets the night previous, or the watering carts be em ployed to sprinkle the streets on Sat urday. Let the authorities see to this. If some plan is not adopted to avoid the dust, the interest of the celebration will be much marred. We trust this suggestion will be heeded. San Diego Items. From tho Union of July 1. They are cutting hay at Milquatay for the Yuma Stage Line. The "dog nuisance" is again com plained of by citizens whose hours of repose are broken by unearthly bowl ings, barkings, and growlings. A tax on dogs is suggested as a remedy. Mr. Loring G. Nesmith, for nearly a year past acting cashier ot the Bank of San Diego, retired yesterday, and is succeeded by Mr. Charles Hubbell, who has recently been elected cashier. Our friends at the mines are going to celebrate the Fourth in royal style. The ball at Banner City will be one pf the finest affairs of the kind ever seen in that section. Many San Diegans talk of going'out and joining in the festivities. Crouch and Baker, the Shasta mur derers, were, on Monday, sentenced to be hanged on the 25th of next August. Some Large Congressional Appropriations. Among some of tho larger items that have passed in the appropriation bills are the following: For a light ship near the entrance of New York harbor, to mark the site of the wreck of the steamship Scotland, $400,000; work at League Island, 8300,000; Sub- Treasury and Postomce buildings at Washington, $352,027; Court house and Sub-Treasury at Chicago,s7so,ooo; Cincinnati Postoffice, $300,000; New York Postoffice, $1,344,204; Court house, and Postoffice at St. Louis, $750,000; continuing the construction of the new State, War and Navy De partment, $700,000; removal of ob structions in East river, near Hell Gate, $225,000. Tho appropriation for light houses and fog-*ignals on the northwestern coast are very large. Among the items in tho River and Harbor bill is an appropriation of $200,000 for surveys and estimates for improvements recommended by tbe Senate Sleet Committee onTranspor tatlon Routes to the Seaboard upon four routes indicated in said report, and also for the route from the mouth of the Youghcogheney river, to con tinue the slack-water navigation up said river to the foot of the Alleghany Mountains, and intersecting there with the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal. The money is to bo expended by the Secretary of War to secure the great est amount of accurate information of said routes. License In San Jose.
