CHANGED HANDS The New Council Meets and Organizes. COMMISSIONS AND COMMITTEES. Those Who Refuse to Surrender Their Officers to Their Suc cessors. The City Council met yesterday morn ing President Kuhrts in the chair and Messrs. Bryant, Barrett, Moriarty, Cohn, Hanley, Shafer, Sineabaugh, Threlk Id, McNally, Wilson, Boabyshell and Karl present. Tho members of the City Council-elect were invited to take seats inside the rail, and the Clerk read the minutes of the meeting of Monday last, which were ap proved. Dr. Sinsabaugh moved that the matter of dividing the water on Figueroa street be referred to the City Surveyor. Carried. J. Marion Brooks, on motion of Mr. Cohn, was allowed to make a speech in regard to his contest, which is pending in in the Supreme Court. He said that he proposed to contest the constitutionality of the new Charter,and held that the law, under tbe new Charter, providing for as sessments was unconstitutional, and he advised that if the members of the Coun cil did not desire to hold on they should resign. He believed that the Charter was unconstitutional, and would be proven to be so by the Supreme Court. Toe Mayor was instructed to sigu deeds to a strip of land in East Los Angeles along Walnut street. The City Attorney reported that he would begin an action to widen First Btreet as soon as he was furnished with the lines and an abstract of the property. Received and riled. The matter of accepting a strip of land on Fifth street was referred to the City Surveyor. Mr. Cohn asked whether the meeting oi the Council was an adjourned one or a special meeting. He was informed that it was an ad journed meeting, and he objected to the taking up of any new business. President Kuhrts decided that any business could be transacted, as the pre vious meeting had not adjourned for a special purpose. The Finance Committee recommended that the amended bonds of Fred Eaton, City Surveyor; L. J. Thompson, Tax Col lector, and W. D. Johnson, Treasurer, as amended, be approved. Adopted. Mr. Wilson moved the reconsideration of the vote upon the question regarding tbe exchange of lands of reservoir No. 4. Carried. Dr. Sinsabaugh said he had it reported on the street that the committee which recommended the exchange of deeds had been hired to mate the report. He wanted to say that he had not even been approached. He did not believe that the city had a shred of a title to the land, ex cept the right to overflow it. For that reason he favored the proposition in or der that the city might obtain a title in fee to some part of the land. If this was done the city could do something with the land. Mr. Kuhrts could see no reason why the city should make such an exchange as was proposed. Mr. Cohn said that he hnd thoroughly investigated the matter and had come to the conclusion that tho trade should not be made and he saw no reason why the opinion should be changed. He had been approached by Mr. Kelley, but he had not changed his mind. Captain Barrett thought that the mat ter should have further investigation. Dr. Sinsabaug moved that it be re ferred tothe incoming Council. Carried. The Board of Public Works submitted a short report, which was adopted. The Sewer Committee recommended that the bid of Farrell for the cnnF f nic tion of a sewer on New Main street bo accepted. Adopted. Mr. Wilson moved that the street naming ordinance be referred to the new Council. Carried. Mr. Cohn moved to adjourn. Mayor Bryson said that while he had so message to deliver, he desired to thank the Council for the kindness and courtesy it had shown toward him dur ing his first term of office. The motion to adjourn was then carried by a vote of 8 to 5. After this vote had been announced, Mr. Kuhrts said that a mistake had been made, and that the motion ought to have been to adjourn line die. Two of those who voted in favor of ad journing stated that if they had properly understood the matter they would have voted against the motion. Tiic New Council. Upon the adjournment of the old Council, City Clerk Teed rapped on the desk and said: "Tbe new Council elected under tbe provisions of the new Charter will please come to order." This hav ing been done, he said that the first business in order was the election of a temporary Chairman. Mr. Hamilton placed Major Bonsall in nomination. Nominations were then closed and Major Bonsall was declared elected. Upon assuming the chair, to which he was escorted by Mr. Hamilton, Major Bonsall said: "Gentlemen of the new Council, any extended remarks at this time would be out of order, as there is much important business to be trans acted." The roll was then called by Clerk Teed, and a full Council consisting of Messrs. Van Dusen, McLain, Bengali, Frankenfleld, Shafer, Hamilton, Brown, Summerlaud and Wirsching were found to be present. Mr. Hamilton moved that the Council proceed to the election of a permanent president. Carried. Mr. Summerlaud nominated J. Frank enfleld. Mr. Van Dusen moved that the nomi nations be closed. Carried. Mr. Hamilton moved that the Clerk cast the ballot for Mr. Frankenfleld for president. Carried. Clerk Teed then cast the ballot, and Mr. Bonsall declared that Mr. Franken fleld had been elected President of the Council. Mr. Frankenfleld then took his seat, and said that he heartily thanked the members of the Council for the honor they had conferred upon him. He had oo particular remarks to make, and would proceed with business, as time was short. Major Bonsall moved that Mayor Haz ard be officially notified that the Council was in session. Carried, and Major Bonsall was appointed a committee of one to notify the Mayor. He reported shortly afterward that Mayor Hazard would appear later. Clerk Teed then read a long list of rules for the conduct of the meetings ef • LOS ANGELES DAILF HERALD FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 22, 1889. the Council. These were unanimously adopted. Mr. Hamilton introduced an ordinance flxh g the regular sessions for Monday morning oi each week at 10 o'clock. The rule<» were suspended and the ordinance was adopted. Mr. Summerlaud introduced an ordi nance repealing an ordinance adopted in DectniW, 1888. tegulating the adoption uf ordinances. The rules were suspended and the ordinance was adopted. President Frankenfield then announced the Standing Committees of the Council as follows: Public Works—Bonsnll. Shafer snd Wirsch ins. Finance—Hamilton, McLain aud Van Duzer. Sewers—Shafer, Hamilton and Summerland Fire and Wator—Summerlaud, M Lain and Bonsall Z inja—Wirsching, Shafer and Brown Land—Van Duzen, Shafer and Browu.

Public Building—Brown , McLain, Hamilton, Bonsall and Wirsching. Mr. Hamilton moved that the Clerk be authorized to have the rules printed in pamphlet form. Carried. A recess was then taken until 2 o'clock Afternoon Session. The Council met at 2 o'clock, all pres ent. Clerk Teed read Mayor Hazard's mes sage, as follows: 7b the Honorable Council of the City of Los An geles: in accordance with the requirements of the Charter, I have the honor to submit the fol lowing communication: FINANCES AND DEBT. The funded debt of tbe city is at this time $467 000, and there is money now in the city treasury to pay $10,000 of tiat amount, leav ing bonds outstandlt g to the amount of $457. --000, w tv yearly interest thereon f.f $29,500. The city assessment lor the fiscal year 1887-8 was $27,875,3118, on which a levy was made of $1.30 on the $100, producing, or intended to produce, $361,450 98. Of this $1 30. thir teen and six-tenths (13.G) cents was for Interest on the funded debt and the redemp tion of bonds, the remainder, $1,164.10, was for general municipal purposes. The city as sessmeut for the last fiscal year 1888-89, was $39,496,172, on which a levy was msde of $1.50 on the $100, intending to produce $592, --147 37. Of this $1.50, nine (9) cents was for interest on the i üb'ic debt and the redemption of bonds.'and the remaiuder, $1.41, was for general municipal purposes, there being at this dme but a remnant of tins levy available for the ordinary expenses of the city, and, as you are aware, the Charter limits the levy of taxes for all municipal purposes, aside ouly from interest on the funded debt and the payment of bonds, to $1 on the $100 of property as sessed, it will therefore require great care iv the expenditure of moneys derived from mu nicipal taxes not to exceed the limits of the Charter. TDBLIC IMPROVEMENTS. The history of municipalities shows the economical expenditures of money on perma nent public improvements to be one of the greatest levers to elevate them Into busy marts of trade, and while thnt is so the people who pay tbe costdemaud au bonest aud economical adiniuietration of the public fuuds. The rapid increase of population in this city has necessitated the immediate construction of a sewer to tbe sea, which, when buiit, will give tbe best sewer facilities of any city oi im- P rtance on the coast, having its outlet sixteen mi'esfrom tse city. These improvements are usually delayed, owing to their importance and the amount of pre imiuary labor neoessary to put tbem under way. E.ich administration finds itself about to enter upon important public works at tbe end of its tenure <> oflice. aud as a last resort they are turned over to the suc ceeding admiuistratiou to struggle with. If tbe construction oi this seiver is taken iv hand early it can be completed without being finally turned over to the succeeding admiuistratiou. In addition to the benefit to be derived from the setver itself when completed hardly less, if any, benefit will be derived from the employ ment oi tbe labor needed in itsconstructlo o If one could realize tbe loss we sustain each day that able and willing men staud idle on our streets, imme Hate steps would be taken to save their labor, uot to mention lha great benefit to accrue to the community by putting the ready money paid as compensation for such labor into active circulation. TUBLIC PARKS. I would also recommend the improvement, of the pirks belonging tothe city Much has been done lv that direction during the last lew years, but much more remaius to be done, and in that connection I suggest that this is the season for plant n< trees and shrubs, and if such work is uot soon done, the present sea on will be lost. PUBLIC DRIVES. The Honorable Beard of supervisors ere now engaged In hariag constructed a boulevard to Santa Monica. I would recommend that a committee be appointed to confer with tbe Board as to what la necessary to be done to complete this work, and also to have con struct ,-v a similar boulevard betweon this city and Pasadena. Steps should also be taken to abolish, if possible, the payment of toll be tween this city arid Pasadena. The demand for and payment of to lis a relic of the past, an J should be abolishad, and to that end I would sugges" co-operation with the Supervisors of tbe county Tne early completion, and the subsequent keeping in repair of all the high ways leading out of and into tae city is one of the important requirements that needs im mediate attention. PUBLIC Koran, In Section 44 of the Charter it ia made the duty of the City Clerk to adveitise ior proposals to receive and disburse the public moneys of the city, and of the Council to contract with the bank offering the highest rate of interest, and therefore recommend that no delay be made iv the advertisement for proposals. I &m respectfully yours, Henry T. Wazard, Mayor. Los Angeles, March 21,1989. Major Bonsall moved that the message be relerred tothe appropriate committees of the Council to act upon the sugges tions. Carried. Mr. Wirsching moved that the mem bers of the Council proceed to the selec tion of seats. Carried. The names of the Councilmen were then placed in a hat, and the choice re sulted in the following order: Wirsch ing, Shafer, Summerland, McLain, Bon sall, Brown, Van Dusen and Hamilton. The following message was received from Mayor Hazard stating that he had appointed W. W. Robinson as his clerk. Received and filed. City Clerk Teed stated that the gentle man whose term of office as City Clerk had expired, had refused to turn the office over to him, and, in consequence, he was unable to obtain the records and seal of the cfty. City Attorney McFarland said that there appeared to be some of the old city officers who would not give up their offices to their successors. Ho thought it advisable that a demand be made of these officers, and that if they refuse to retire at 9 o'clock this morning that the officers elected take legal steps to obtain possession. On motion of Major Bonsall this action was ordered taken. Mr. Hamilton moved that the Council go into the election of Police Commis sions. Carried. Mr. McLain nominated R. Bilderrain, Major Bonsall nominated Hervey Lind ley, Mr. Brown nominated Geo. C. Knox and Mr. Hamilton nominated Major Fur rey. Nominations were then closed and the Clerk cast the ballot for the gentle men named, who were declared elected. Mr. Shafer moved that tbe Council proceed to the election of a Park Com mittee. Carried. Messrs. Sutherland Hutton, J. H. Bryant, M. L. Wicks and S. C. Hubbell were nominated and declared elected upon ballot of the Clerk. Mr. Shafer moved that tbe Council proceed to the selection of a Fire Com mission. Carried. Mr. Van Dusen nominated Frank Marsh, Mr. Shafer nominated J. Kuhrts, Mr. Hamilton nominated T. Keefe. The nominations were closed and the men were elected by ballot of the Clerk. Mr. Hamilton moved that the Council proceed to elect a Board of Health. Carried. Dr. J. H. Davidson, Dr. J. Kurtz, Dr. M. Hagao, and E. T. Wright were nominated and declared elected. Mayor Hazard sent in the names of the same gentlemen for members of the Board of Health. On mation the ap pointment was confirmed. Justice Stanton sent in a communica tion requesting the confirmation of Geo. P. Fibfcs as his clerk. Received and placed on tile. On motion of Mr. Shafer, Messrs. Shafer, Bonsall aud Van Dasen were appointed as a Committee on Btre3t Naming. Mr. McLain moved to adjourn until 10 o'clock this evening. Carried. Other City Officer*. The principal topic of conversation on the street yesterday was the pending contest in the Supreme Court, and the refusal of M. F. Stiles, City Auditor and Clerk of the Council under the old Char ter, and J. W. Drown, Street Superin tendent under the old Council, to turn over their offices to their successors. The first occurrence of interest in this matter was shortly after the old Council adjourned, when the City Auditor-elect made a formal demand upon Mr. Stiles for the records of the office. Mr. Stiles refused on the ground thut the old Coun cil had not adjourned sjite die, and that he did not believe it would be right to give up the office until it was decided by the Bupreme Court whether the new Charter is legal. Later in the day City Clerk Teed also demanded of Mr. Stiles the surrender of bis records as Cleik of the Council. This demand was refused on the same ground. Street Superintendent-elect Morford de manded of J. W. Drown, who had been acting as Street Superinten 'ent under the old Council, the surrender of his of fice, but was refused on much the same grounds, Mr. Drown stating, however, that he would surrender upon being served vr ith the proper legal process. Col. Morford, however, did not propose to be without a claim to the office, for he placed deputies there, and at a late hour both parties were still there. Mr.Drown refused to give up the keys, and his dep uties remained in the office. City Burve\or Dockweiler tnrred over his office to City Engineer Fred Eaton, entering a protest, however,soas to save himself if it should be decided that the old Council had not gone out. At noon he told the men employed in his office to stop work, and Mr. Eaton immediately told them to go to work again and act under his authority. City Clerk Teed yesterday afternoon is sued certificates to the Commissioners elected by the new Council. He suc ceeded in obtaining the seal of the city, and was able to issue them in regular lorm. City Auditor Lopez will decide to-day what action to take in reference to his office. In relation to tbe state of affairs Treas urer Johnson said his opinion was that he was acting under the new Charter. He said that it was his idea that he would have to pay war rants issued as prescribed by the new Charter. He had not been enjoined from doing this, and ho had been de clared elected and had qualified under ihe new Charter. He obtained from the City Clerk's office the numbers of the last warrants issued up to noon yester day, and said that he would refuse to pay any money out on demands issued under the old Charter. He would probably determine to-day just how he would act in the matter. City Assessor Fischer said that he was still acting under the old Charter, and that he would not succeed himself until next January. The writ served upon aim had not stopped his work, except an to tho assessment on the property of J. Marion Brook", which would have been made under the old Charter. City Tax Collector Thompson said that he considered that he was acting under the new Charter and that he had suc ceeded himself. He was not collecting taxes, however, and would place the money taken in for licenses in the bank until he could decide how to proceed. An effort was made yesterday after noon by J. Marion Brooks to obtain an order restraining the officers elected under the new Charter from discharging their duties. Judge Wade, to whom he applied, refused to grant the writ. Later iv the day the officers serving under the old Charter were served with a notice from J. Marion Brooks to the effect that if they turned over their officee or trans acted business under the new Charter he would, as a taxpayer, hold them respon sible. Mayor Bryson early in the day turned his office over to Mayor Hazard, and said he proposed to make no contest. Mayor Hazard will occupy the same of fice in the Bryson block that has been occupied by Mayor Bryson. About 1,000 blank applications for positions on the police force have been given out already and still there is a demand. It was said yesterday that it was within the range of possibilities that Frank Barns would not be the Chief of Police. It was admitted by the members of tbe Council that it meant Burns when Major Furrey was selected, but it was also stated that a great deal of influence was being brought to bear to break up this combination. A meeting of the Police Commissioners will be called very shortly and then the interesting ques tion will be settled. Board ol Education. The Baard of Education met last night iv the Council Chamber at the City Hall, General E. P. Johnson presiding, and the following members present: Messrs. Day, Embody and Pomeroy. The new members were also present in full force, and watched the proceedings with evi dent interest. Mr. Pomeroy opened the proceedings by presenting the report of the Finance Committee, which was ordered filed, and an application for a jinitorship from Mr. Carlton was referred to the new board. Before adjourning Mr. Pomeroy offered the following resolution, which was unan imously adopted: Resolved, That our thanks and appresiations are extended to Professur Frlesner and Baker, also to our Superintendent oi Janitors and P.e pairg- Mr. Henry, for their uniform courtesy to this Board, and we most heartily commend them to our successors as faithful and zealous officials in their respective positions. No further business being before the Board, it adjourned tine die, and the new members took their seats. Gov. J. J. Gosper and Mr. E. E. Cox officiated as temporary chairman and secretary re spectively, and Mr. Ellis nominated the only surviving member of the old Board, Mr. Pomeroy, for permanent chairman. He was unanimously elected, as was Mr. Cox for permanent secretary. After the usual speeches of thanks for honors conferred, Mr. Woodbury offered tbe following resolution which was adopted over Mr. Whaling's dissenting vote: Resolved, That tbe rules and regulations now in force for tbe government of the educational department of the City of Los Angeles, snd not in conflict with the Charter of the City of Los Augeles, shalibe and remain In force from this time, uutil changed or repealed. Mr. Whaling again objected, when the following resolution was offered by Mr. E. E. Cox: Resolved, That tbe present officers of the Department and all teachers be con tinued in their respective positions at present salaries until the further order of the Board. Adopted as read. On motion of Mr. Kllis, tho following resolution was adopted as read : That the President appoint committees of three each as follews: Finance; School Houses, Sites and Re pal's; Furnllure and Supplies: Credentials and li'ialiflcatlont of Teacher* aud Salaries: Janitors, Libraries and Printing; Rules, Regulations and Classifications; Vis iting. Mr. rowers offered a resolution as fol lows : Unsolved, That the usual school vaca tion be taken for two weeks from the first Monday in April next, Mr. Whaling vigorously objected; but it was adopted. On motion of Mr. Ellis a recess of five minutes was taken to allow the President to appoint the different committees. At the expiration of the time the Chairman announced the following as his appointments: Finance: —Messrs. Cox, Powers and Mcintosh. Sehoolhouses, Sites and Repairs:— Messrs.
