BOBBED AND WOUNDED.
Eemarkable Experience of Dr. Kellogg. TIED TO THE RAILROAD. fie Remembers Nothing: After Be ing: at the Santa Fe Depot. The night clerk at the St. Elmo looked np with astonishment about 4 o'clock on Tuesday morning as a well dressed man threw open the doors and staggered rather than walked into the lobby. The visitor's head, was covered with blood and his clothes were torn, and at first the hotel man thought that the latest arrival was only a drunk, though this idea was soon banished from his mind when the newcomer spoke: "I am Dr. D. T. Kellogg, of Al hambra," he s»id, "and I have been robbed and foully beaten. I came into Los Angeles yesterday morning to pay my taxes and look after a few professional matters, after which I intended to return home. When I had settled my business I started down First street, and had at that time in my pocket about one hundred dollars in addition to which I carried a valuable gold watch and a few other trinkets. I remember being at the Santa Fe depot and after that all seems a dream until about an hour ago, when I awoke with a strange feeling in my head. I tried to collect my thoughts sb consciousness returned but all was a blank, and when I opened my eyes all I could see was the blue sky overhead. I essayed to arise but found that 1 was bound to the ground, and as I glanced on either side a numb feeling of terror came over me, for I saw that I was tied across a railroad track. In a frenzy of despair I shouted for help, but tbe place was evidently a very lonely one, for no response came. Then I struggled with all my might, and an ecstatic joy sent the blood rushing through my veins as I felt my hands loosen, and finally I was free. I arose to my feet and looked around and as I did so I felt something trick ling down my face, and putting my hand to my head I felt that I had been wounded. As soon as I could locate mysel f I found that I was on the Santa Fe track on the river front, and I started for uptown and found my way here. Now give me a bed, for I feel sick and sore." The hotel man suggested that the police be immediately in formed cf tbe occurrence, but Doctor Kellogg said no, that the affair was over and he did not want to create a sensation. A room was accordingly given to him and he retired, and after dressing his wounds soon sank into a comfortable slumber. About 11 o'clock yesterday morning a lady appeared at the hotel office and asked if Dr. Kellogg were in the house. She wbs informed that he was, whereupon she requested to see him, stating that she was his wife. It seems that the doctor had promised to be home on Monday evening, and as the evening grew into the night and still he did not arrive, she grew anxious for his safety, and decided to come to town on the first morning train and seek him. She was very much overcome when informed of what had happened to her husband, who was at once awakened and informed of her ar rival. The two left on the after noon train for home, declining to lodge any complaint with the police. Doctor Kellogg has been a resident of Alhambra for a long time past anil has a high standing in both social and profes sional circles, so there is no reason why the truth of bis remarkable statement should be questioned. He says that he was not drinking on Monday, and those who know him say that he is always most temperate in his habits. THE POLICE COMMISSION. List of the New Officers Selected for Duty. More than the usual interest attached to the meeting of the Police Commission yesterday afternoon, owing to the fact that ten additional policemen were to be appointed. As soon as it was learned that the Council had agreed to -allow an increase of the force, the applications be gan to pour in, and when the Board got down to action yesterday some sixty or seventy were on file. The applicants themselves were out in force, blockading the halls leading to the Mayor's office, and lingering about the police station awaiting the an nouncement of the names selected. They were kept in long suspense, for the Board remained in session two hours and a quarter and the matter of appoint ments was deferred until all the other business had been finished. Mr. Burbank appeared and stated that he expected to begin work on his build ing on Main street and asked permission to allow the brick to remain in front of the building. It was stated that the matter was not in the hands of the Police Commissioners. The following transfers of saloon li censes were allowed: C. H. Webb to Harry Travers, 201 East First street; J. F. Gerkins to B. Aranbel, 662 San Fer nando street; Martel & Co. to Legr6 & Graßsot, 148 Upper Main street; Mas satt & Lauzier to G M Bayer, 13 Aliso street; Herman Luckeman toC. Appel don, 46 North Main street; Schnobel A Derricke to Calvin & Oobler, 121 South Main; D. Pearl to H. Zimmerman, Washington Gardens: O. E. Luckeman to Clotta & Tischauser, 20 North Main; Michael Ryan to Patrick Walsh, 131 Upper Main; H. Merrick to Johnson Hawkanson, 447 South Olive. The last named saloon, which had been repre sented to the Board at a former meeting as a disreputable place, was reported by Chief Cooney as now being all right. In view of the trouble that has arisen from granting Schaffer & Salter permis sion to move their saloon from First street to the corner of Spring and Fourth, it was decided hereafter not to issue any permits for removal unless the number of petitioners were secured in the block to be moved to required by law. The following petitions for removal were acted upon: A. Dagany from 780 San Fernando to 59 Los Angeles; referred to the Chief. F. Wancke from 380 First street to 250 First street, Boyle Heights; granted. Joe Bay er & Co. from 130sTorth Main to 704 Temple; referred to the Chief. Henry Vitilini, from 18 to 24 Downey avenue; granted. Frank Bevonia from 143 Upper Main to corner of Belleview and New High; referred to the Chief. ■ On recommendation of the Chief the petition of Dv Puy for a saloon on Second street between San Pedro and Vine, was denied. The following licenses were granted: THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: THURSDAY MORJttJJG, JANUARY 10. 1880. Lonis Maracca, corner of Buena Vista and Walters; Marceline Arand, Macy str»><»t near covered bridge; EI. J, Woollacott, branch hove a 351 South Spring, near Fifth; W. E. Williams, 124 West Fifth; Ru dolfo Laughlin, 228 South Alameda. The petition of Andrew Toll for a license at 123 Requena street was referred to the Chief. The Chief was also instructed to enquire into tbe matter of continuing the saloon under the new Postofflce. The! license of Zettler & Isaac, who were burned out after doing business one day, was recommended to be refunded. Edward Englander was granted per mission to carry a concealed weapon. The petition of ex-Policeman Dawes for tbe same prerogative was denied. The petition of John Yates for a public watering trough at 507 South Spring street was referred to the Board of Health, but the Mayor an nounced himself as being emphatically opposed to the granting of such priv ileges. The Chicago Hat Company pre sented a bill of $4 against Special Police Officer Thomas McCarthy. Referred to the Chief. J.- 8. Owens presented his old claim of $12 against Special Officer Frank Steele, which caused to much trouble last summer and resulted in that officer's surrendering his star. No action was taken. Short Bros., tailors, pre sented a claim against Jailer Bedford for making bis uniform. The Chief was ordered to notify the Jailer to pay his debts or lose his place. Some little indignation was aroused by the presentation of another bill for $22 for lamps for the patrol wagon, a bill for $23 for the same purpose having been allowed only a few weeks ago. The Chief was ordered to investigate. The Chief reported the accumulation of a vast amount of unclaimed property left at the Station by prisoners and others, and recommended its sale. Action was deferred. The Mayor again laid the case of Mrs. Watson bofore the Board and desired to know whether his colleagues favored placing her on the city's pay-roll as police matron. Mr. Kuhrts thought de cidedly not, unless the Chief felt the necessity of having a matron to attend at the station. Mr. Cooney did not see the necessity of it, so the matter was dropped. The reinstatement of Humane Officer Wright as a police officer on half-p ■•, was also_ informally discussed. Chief Cooney highly commended his services and thought he should receive pay both from the city and county; the Mayor was inclined to think the same way, but Mr. Kubrts' views were not so favorable. Without definite action the matter went over. The Park Committee sent in a com munication strongly urging the reap pointment of Capt. J. C. Glidden as park policeman, in accordance with the wishes of nearly all the residents in the vicinity of Sixth-street park. Mr. John F. Humphreys sent in a communication stating that among tbe good officers dropped from the roll on reorganizing the force, were the following, whose re appointment he strongly urged: R. E. Lee, John Stephenson, J/C. Glidden, M. M. Bracewell and L. A. Harris. It was some time when tbe applications were reached before the Board could select from the large number of napes presented, the eleven required to bring the roll up to eighty. At one time there came near being an open rupture between Mr. Kuhrte and Mr. Cooney owing to a remark from the former which the latter misunderstood, and Mr. Kuhrts was on the point of leaving the chamber and permitting the Mayor and Chief to make the appointments to suit them selves. Against this Mr. Bryson and Mr. Cooney protested, and finally Mr. Kuhrts' better judgment prevailed,'and the pro ceedings were amicably concluded. Fol lowing are the names of the appointees selected, the first five having been spe cials on the force, and being simply pro moted to regulars: J. D. Macdonald, W. T. Huston, T. J. Hill, G. Miller, T. J. McCarthy, Thomas Donohue, M. M. Bracewell, L. A. Harris, C. H. Boyce, J. T. Conley and James F. Bryson. New Cases. E. S. Greely & Co. vs. T. H. Rhodes and Geo. F.

Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber of Commerce was called to meet yesterday afternoon. At the meeting one week ago, when the election of officers was in progress, a motion was carried to give the revision of the consti tution into the hands of a committee appointed for that purpose, and to hear its report at a special meeting, which was to take place yesterday afternoon. When the time came for the meeting the committee was not ready to report. One or two members appeared and did a little work at the revision, but as there was no quorum of members of the Chamber present, no action could be taken. The attendance at the meetings of the Cham ber has been steadily on the wane for some time, but yesterday is the first oc casion on which the effort to transact business had to be given up because twenty members could not be brought together. It was decided to call a special meeting Friday afternoon, when an extra effort will be made to get tbe members out. Scnoolhouse Burned. The Ingle wood schoolhouse was burned to the ground yesterday morning. The building was in course of erection, and was to have cost $8,000. No fire had been in the building so far as known, and the cause is a mystery. There was plenty of water, but no hose. The insur ance was $6,000. Everybody Uses Crown flour. Samples frte at grocers.

Bridge matters. The Union Pacific people are hard at work making arrangements for the com mencement of operations on their levee. They have appointed as chief engineer Mr. W. R. Davis, wno until recently was chief engineer for the Lob Angeles Cable Car system, and who is a thoroughly practical man in every re spect. As announced in Sunday morning's Herald, the viaducts over Downey avenue and First street will be extended sixty feet further on the East side so as to give the Bait Lake road room for its tracks underneath, and for which privilege the company contributes about $25,000 to the cost of constructing the bridges. The plans are not yet finally determined on, but it is proposed lo make 60-foot approaches to the viaducts and have the first few feet constructed of masonry, after which the steel viaducts will commence. The Union Pacific syndicate has decided to establish its railroad yards at the Ninth street crossing but have not yet decided on the location of their main depot. The confining ol the river bed iv 300 feet will give them level land on the east side for their tracks, and on their sixty-foot strip they can put down ten tracks and work them without over crowding. The plans for the levee are not yet completed, but di rectly they are ready the company will doubtless commence work. Mr. J. S. Cameron, assistant to President Adams of the Union Pacific, has gone to Salt Lake to work up some facts relative to the extension to this city, and is re ported to have said that the work is sure to go through, although the rail road's Governmental complication may defer the date of beginning the work. This is, however, nothing more than was surmised, but as has before been stated in these columns, the line from the city to tbe ocean is to be completed without delay, and the connection with Salt Lake City made when the funds will permit. "Brown, whose hams do you use?" "I always buy the 'Lilly,' put up by the Los Angeles Cold Storage Company." "Why do you prefer the 'Lilly' hams?" "Because they are sweeter, and are smoked in this city. All hams not branded the 'Lilly' are smoked either at San Francisco or in the Eastern cities, and you cannot tell how long they have been smoked before shipping, and then they are from ten to fifteen days on the road; so you see they are quite ancient by the time they reach Los Angeles, while the 'Lilly' hams are put on the market fresh every day."
