a peddler was waylaid and robbed

sists of a wheel within a wheel

equal number ofoards, one in three
of whloh bears a prizs number of
from $2 to $40, the others being
blank. Tbe game opens by tbe
operator selling a penny whistle
for one dollar, tbe purchaser being
allowed tbe chance of winning a
prize. He then starts bis machine.
After tbe wheels have stopped ths
manipulator, who knows tbe value
of the prize behind the obromo,
makes an offer for tbe chance,
wbioh tbe purchaser of the whistle
may accept or reject as hs pleases.

Citizens' Meeting at El Monte
A goodly Dumber of tbe leading
reskleuta of tbe El Monte school
district met at tbe Bohool bouse at
1:80 v. m., Saturday, tbe 11th Inst.
Their object whs to have an open
talk and a free Interchange of views
as to the expediency of voting, on
tbe 18th Inst., a tax of $5000 to
build a school house, said $6000 to
be raised by giving tbe bonds or
tbe school district, to run for ten
years, with interest, payable an
nually, ut the rate of sight (8) per
cent, per anuum.
The meeting, a 9 a committee of
tbe whole, considered the follow
ing questions:
First—ls a new school necessary,
and if so, bow much ought it to
cost ?
Second—la It expedient to tun
into a 10 year debt of $6000, wltb
Interest at 8 per cent, per annum,
to pay for it ?
A general end lengths discussion
to the effect that the present sobool
building will amply aocommodate
all tbe children of tbe district; and,
with a few repairs, will answer its
purpose for some time to come;
that a debt of $6000, with eight per
cent. for the time the debt was to
run, would amount to about $9000,
(one gentlemao differed from this),
or $00 on the $1000 of the assessed
value of the real estate of tbe dis
trict, and a mortgage at the like
rate upon farms and homesteads;
that tbe debt would be unnecessary
aud onerous, and if the tax wore
levUd It would provoke much bit
ter feeling aud prolonged and ex
pensive litigation—with poor re
sults; tbat, ln a year or two, the
people oould assemble and oousidor
what kind, and how expensive, a
school house was wanted; and,
whenever a new building might be
erected, tbe present bouse should
be attaobed as a primary or a play
room.
At 3 o'olock tbe meeting organ
ized, with Mr. Wm. Slaok as
Chalrnman and Geo. H. Feck as
Secretary. After further dissua
sion, the resolutions, Introduced by
M. F. Quinn, and seconded by G.
H. Peck, were unanimously adopt
ed, as follows:
Flrst-rlt is the opinion and wish
of this meeting that the School
Trustees should expend tbe balance
of tbe county funds in tbe sobool
treasury ln repairing and Improv
ing the present sobool building.
Second—That we are opposed to
levying a tax, or running ln debt
for $6000, to build a new soboal
house; and,
Third—That we respectfully re
quest tbe Board of Sobool Trustees
lo withdraw their notioes for elect
ors'to meet on Saturday, the 18tb
Inst., to dsoide if tbey will vote a
tax of $6000 to build a new school
bouse. Said $6000 to be raised by
giving tbe bonds of the district,
eald bonds to run for ten years,
wltb Interest payable annually, at
the rats of eight per cent, per an-
num.
Mr. Albert Host, Secretary of
tbe Board of Truatees, belug called
00, said tbat be tbougbt tbe no
tices oould not be recalled. It fol
low! tbat tbe meeting to vote tax
•r no tax will be bold on tbe 18th
Inst. After requesting a copy of
the prooeedingt to be furnished tbe
Las Angsles Herald the meeting,
at 4:30 o'elook adjourned.

GAS COMPANY VS. TOBERMAN.
Oplnloa by Judge BepaWao\
In the Superior Court of Los Ange
les County, State of California:
Los Angeles Gas Company )
vs. \
J. B, Toberman, Mayor. )
OPINION.
An application has been made to
thla Court for a writ of mandamus,
to issue to tbe Mayor of the city of
Los Angelea, to compel him to sign
a warrant for $518.50, which the
Counoll of tbe city of Los Augeles,
by a vote of ten of its members, di
rected to be drawn in favor of plain
tiff for lighting tbe streets under a
purported contract between plain
tiff and tbe city of Los Angeles.
Tbe cbarcsr requires tbat all war
rants ordered by the Council should
be signed by tbe Mayor and coun
tersigned by tbe Auditor; the Au
ditor signed the warrant in ques
tion, but the Mayor refused to sign
ths same. It appears by tbe peti
tion herein (and the truth of its al
legations are confessed by tbe de
murrer) that on the sth day of
March, 1881, tbe Connoil by a vote
of fourteeu out of fifteen of It*
member*, approved and adopted a
draft of the contract ln question,
and, by ths same vote, oruered the
Mayor, the defendant herein, to
sigu the same on the part of tbe
city. Un tbe 19th of March tbe
Mayor returned to tbe Council tbe
said contract, declining to sign tbe
same. Tbe Council, by a vote of
eight to five, there being thirteen
members present, ordered tbe
Clerk to sigu the said oontraot in
behalf of tbe city. Tbe oontraot
was thereupon signed by tbe Clerk
and the President of said Gas Com
pany, was delivered to tbe Clerk
for aaid city and a copy retained by
tbe plaintiff. The plaintiff, lv
purauanoe of said oontraot,
furnished gas for lighting the
street* for oue month, duly pre
sented bis claim therefor to the
Council and this body, aa above
«et fortb, ordered the Clerk to laau*
ths said warrant, whloh tbe de
fendant now refusss to sign a* re
quired by the charter.
In defense of his action in tbe
premises, tbe defendant urges that
tbe oontraot is illegal, beoause tbe
Mayor was tbe only one author
ized to sign the contract, and be
oause If some otber person was or
dered by tbe Council to sign the
same, ten and not eight member*
were required to ooncur in the
order.
Section 5 of Article IV. of the
City Charter provides tbat "eight
members of Ihe Council shall be a
quorum to do business."
Section 7 of tbe some article
says: "The concurrence of a major
ity of a quorum is a sufficient ma
jority to dstsrmlne any question or
matter other tbau the final pas
sage of au ordinance, or ezoept
when otherwise specially provided.
Tbe oonourrenoe of ten members of
tbe Council eball be necessary for
tbe final passage of an ordinance
appropriating money, and eight for
all otber ordinances." Ssotion 19
of Article XII. provides: "Ten
members of tbe Council shall be
necessary to pass any ordinance or
resolution, or to do or perform any
other aot whereby auy debt Is cre
ated and money is appropriated, or
the revenue of tbe city is in any
way diminished." Section lof tbe
same article providee that "the
City of Los Angeles shall not be
and Is not bouud by any oontraot,
or in auy way liable thereon, un
less ths same is made in writing
by order of tbe Council, tbe draft
thereof be approved by the
Council, and the same ordered to
be, and be, signed by the
Mayor, or some otber person in be
half of the city." * * • *
It Is dear from ths reading of tbe
foregoing provisions tbat tbe oon
traot between tbe plaintiff and tbe
olty . was legally approved and
adopted by tbe Counoll, fourteen
out of fifteen voting for It. These
made tbe contract, exoept that tbe
Council might order the Mayor or
some other person to sign the same
ln behalf ot tbe city. And tbe
Mayor should have signed it, for
no discretion is vested ln him to de
cline. It was a msre ministerial
aot whioh be was bound to perform,
and was not an ordinance or reso
lution where tbe charter vests him
with the right of veto; for it is only
where an ordinance or resolution is
oonoerned, that tbe charter re
quires should be presented to tbe
Mayor for his approval and signa
ture, and where discretion Is vested
In him to approve or return the
same with bis objeotions. (Section
11, Article XII., of charter.) No
doubt oan be eutertalned that tbe
Mayor could bave been compelled
to sign the contract by mandamus;
the Council, however, authorized,
by a vote of eight to five, the
Clerk to sign it. This act of sign
ing was no aot tbat "created any
debt aud whereby money was ap
propriated;" nor was "ths revenue
of the city in any way diminished
thereby;" nor was it tbe "final
passage ot an ordinance or resolu
tion appropriating money." The
Council elmply ordered that in
pursuance of Section 1 of Artiols
XII., tbe Clerk Instead of the May
or should sign a contract already
adopted by a vote of fourteen to
one.
It results that the Mayor cannot
evade bis duty in tbis manner, nor
oan the contract be aunulled In
■ such a summary and informal way.
There are no merits In tbe demur
rur and tbe same Is overruled.

An Athenian Romance.
[S. F. Exchange.]
Ia Oakland, tha Athens of the
Pacific, the Eden of California, the
aerpeut, that anoient enemy of
man, haa shown bis bead. It Is a
sad tale, a story of passion oddly
mixed up with religion, and we
proceed to Its relation witb tbat
keen regard for the feelings of
others whioh has ever cuaracter
icsd this journal. When Moody and
Sankey sang the praises of Purity in
Oakland, and assursd tbe natives
of tbat delightful villsgs tbat
tbsy would be eternally damned
unless tbsy gave up their hand
squsszlngs and huggery-inuggery,
a fair soprano, married, and a mil
itaryigentlsman, also married, sat
in tbs front row and drank In re
ligion as the thirsty etsg quaffs tbe
water from the brook, bus eang,
"Where is My Wandering Boy To
night V (her husband is a Ban
Franoisco merchant), and the mili
tary man groaned, "Hold the Fort,"
in an impassioned bass, wbile tbe
good Mr. Moody blessed tbem for a
braoecf model converts. And In
tbe calm days suooeeding those
nights of beartfelt devotion, those
brands anatoned from tbe burning
sat sids by side in tbe male brand's
buggy, and drove through quiet
country ways, and stopped at quiet
oountry iuna, wbile their conversa
tion was of religion and tbe bliss of
adding new souls to tbe great mass
of creation. It is reoorded that the
male brand would halt bis
buggy some distance from tbe fe
male brand's realdenoe, and play
the opening bars of "Nearer My
God to Thee" on a tin whistle. Tbe
lady rejoined with a stanza of
"Come to Jesus," and then the in
nocent pair would drive forth into
tbe great and scandal-loving world,
and oompare their impressions of
the Bible from Genesis to Revela
tions. But tbe military gentleman
had one terrible and unpardonable
weakness—he kept a diary. In this
little book It was bis wont to re
cord all the conversions be bad
made by tbe laying ou of banda
and otber methods, together with
tbe details of bow bis female peni
tents received tbe mighty truth.
In a woeful hour bis wife lit upon
the diary, aud to use a phrase ex
pressive but almost sacrilegious In
such a eonnectlon. she "tumbled to
tbe racket," and she not only tum
bled to her husband but she made
tbe deuce of a raoket berself, so
loud, Indeed, that it reaobed the
ears ot tbe fair convert's spouse.
He most emphatically disapproved
of tbe manner in whioh his wife
was led to the fold, and was sinful
enough to sue for a divorce in Red
wood City. The Court was like
wise depraved and Irreligious
enough to grant it, and to award
the custody of tbe convert's tbree
young ohildreu to tbe plaintiff.
The matter stopped here.
Tbe amateur evangeliet burn
