The New Council Meets and
Those Who Refuse to Surrender
Their Officers to Their Suc
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
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
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.
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
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
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

Mr. Summerlaud nominated J. Frank
Mr. Van Dusen moved that the nomi

Mr. Hamilton moved that the Clerk

Mr. Bonsall declared that Mr. Franken

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
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 •
the Council. These were unanimously
Mr. Hamilton introduced an ordinance

morning oi each week at 10 o'clock. The
rule<» were suspended and the ordinance

Mr. Summerlaud introduced an ordi
nance repealing an ordinance adopted in
DectniW, 1888. tegulating the adoption

The Council met at 2 o'clock, all pres
Clerk Teed read Mayor Hazard's mes
sage, as follows:
7b the Honorable Council of the City of Los An
in accordance with the requirements of the
Charter, I have the honor to submit the fol
lowing communication:
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

tions. Carried.

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

that if they refuse to retire at 9 o'clock
this morning that the officers elected

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
City Auditor Lopez will decide to-day
what action to take in reference to his
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
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.

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
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:

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.
