was carried without a dissenting vote.
It was stated that the business to come
before the Council was the arrangement

not consider that they were acting in op
position to the spirit of the charter.

On motion of Mr. Wirsching the
President of the Council was requested to

Mr. Hamilton announced that the

City Hall on Saturday afternoons at 1:30
Major Bonsall announced that the
Board of Public Works would meet on
Saturday mornings at 9 :30 o'clock at the
City Hall.
The Council then adjourned until
Monday morning at 10 o'clock.
Tbe Fire Comuilmlon.
The Fire Commiseioners met at Mayor
Hazard's office at 1 o'clock in the after
noon, all the members present. On
motion of Mr. Kuhrts, Mayor Hazard
was elected Chairman of the Board,
which proceeded to the election of a
Chief Engineer.
On motion of Mr. Kuhrts, Thomas
Strohm was elected Chief without a dis
senting vote.
After some little objection on the part
of Mr. Lovell, it was decided to elect the
Assistant Chief.
Mr. Kuhrts stated that he intended to
place in nomination a man, but having
heard that he would not be able to work
harmoniously with Chief Strohm, he had
decided not to present his name.
Mr. Marsh then took the floor, after
some further discussion, and nominated
Charles Miles for Assistant Chief.
Mr. Lovell objected to this, and asked
that the matter be postponed for at least
another week, in order that ho might in
vestigate Mr. Miles' record.
Mr. Keefe said that the Commission
could make any appointment it pleased,
and if it was not satisfactory they could
remove the men elected, and therefore
there was no need of any hesitation on
that account.
Mr. Kuhrts said that Miles was well
liked in the Fire Department and the
boys would work with him from first to
last, therefore, he was in favor of his ap
A vote was then called for, and the
Mayor asked that Messrs. Kuhrts and
Keefe's names be called first. This was
done, and Charles Miles was elected by
a vote of 4to 1. Mr. Lovell refusing to
Mr. Keefe asked that a committee be
appointed as a Supply Committee.
Mayor Hazard said that time was short
and he had a meeting of the Police Com
mission to attend, so, on motion, an ad
journment was taken, subject to the call
of the President.
Tbe Police Conimtiilen.
The movements of the Police Commis
sion were regarded with a great deal of
interest yesterdya, for it was expected
that some action might be taken toward
tne appointment of a new Chief. It had
been reported that Chief Cooney had been
deposed by the Commission because he
would not recognize Mr. Hazard as
Mayor. This, upon investigation, was
found to be untrue. Chief Cooney was
asked if he recognized Mr. Hazard as
Mayor and he replied that he did and
would obey his orders as such. Mayor
Hazard asked him to place an officer at
the City Clerk's office to see that no one
but Clerk Teed took possession. Chief
Cooney replied that he would do so, un
derstanding that the officer was to go on
duty yesterday morning at 6 o'clock.
Mayor Hazard and others of
the Commission passed the City
Clerk's office about midnight
on Thursday night and seeing
no officer they told Captain Harris to
place tbe officer on watch. Captain Har
ris placed Officer Leehart on duty in
front of the office, and there the matter
ended. The Commissioners held several
secret sessions yesterday, caucuses, they
called them, and after "they were over,
said that they had done nothing except
to talk over the rules and regulations.
The matter of selecting a chief, it was
said, was not touched, and might not be
until to-day, or perhaps next week. The
chances that Frank Burns would be
chosen were considered to be materially
decreased. It was said that a great
effort was being, and had been brought
to bear on some of the Commissioners
who were in favor of him, to induce them
to change their minds. The names
of Councilman McLain and Detective
Glass were mentioned as most prominent
in the tight for the position. The ques
tion as to Mr. McLain was as to whether
he is eligible. It is claimed that under
the new Charter he is not eligible.
Other City Officers.
When Mr. M. F. Stiles reached the
City Clerk's office yesterday morning he
found a policeman and Clerk Teed in
possession, as was stated would be the
case in yesterday morning's Herald
He tiled a protest to the action of Clerk
Teed and Auditor Lopez in taking charge
of the office. Auditor Lopez thought
that, in the interest of the city, he
should be allowed a deputy by the Coun
cil, which had not been done. Tax Col
lector Thompson also thought he should
be allowed a deputy for office duty by
tbe Council.
Mr. J. W. Drown surrendered hia
office to Street Suaerintendent Morford.
He filed a protest, and left the office in
charge of his successor.
California Social Club.
Last evening, at Turn Verein Hall, the
California Social Club gave its fourth
hop, which proved to be one of the most
successful and pleasant ever given by
the club, and, in fact, one of the nicest
social events of the season, notwithstand
ing the fact that quite a number of the
patrons of the club dances were kept at
home by its being l.ent. This club has
only been organized a few months, but
in that time it has taken a prominent
place in social matters, as the party of
last evening will prove. The club has
nicely furnished rooms in the Lanker
shim block, in which it has placed a fine
Chickering piano, billiard table and
other accessories, and in which it is a
pleasure to pass away the time. The
club is composed of about fifty of the
young business men of the city, who
have taken hold of the club with the de
termination to make this one of the
many permanent institutions of the kind
in the city, as their actions in fitting up
and furnishing of club rooms demon
strate. The following are the Executive
Committee, who had charge of, and to
whom, in a large measure, is due the
success of last night's party: J. H. De
La Monte, A. C. Stevens, S. M. Pickett,
F. E. Stevens, F. E. Lowry, J. F. Burns,
H. M. Ashley, Seth Smith and W. H.
Routzahn. The grand march was very
ably conducted by Dr. W. H. Dukeman.
A Distinguished Party.
Dr. W. Seward Webb, President of the
Wagner Car Company, is on his way
from New York to Southern California.
He is traveling in a special train of four
cars, consisting of dining, combination
baggage and parlor and Bleeping coaches,
and has in addition to his family a num
ber of friends with him, there being
eleven in ail in the party. An idea of
the comfort they mean to get while on
the road, may be obtained from the fact
that they have fifteen servants with
them, bringing the total up to twenty
six. The trip is purely for pleasure, and
the route adopted is as follows: Niagara
Falls, Denver, El Paso, Vera Cruz, Los
Angeles, Portland, Ore.; Helena, Mont.;
Winnipeg, Vancouver and back to New
York. A stop of a month will be made
in Southern California.

A Beautiful Residence.
A representative of this paper having
occasion to visit tbe southwestern por
tion of the city yesterday, and noticing
the many fine residences along Figueroa
street, took the liberty to step into Mr.
Frank Sabichi's new mansion that has
just been completed, between Ellis
avenue and Adams street. The design
of the house itself is striking, it beiDg a
castellated style of architecture, with
broad steps leading up to a tiled vesti
bule; the halls are spacious and the
rooms are very lar. c and airy. The
house is fitted up with every modern
convenience, such as a dust flue, clothes
shute, dumb waiter, electric bells, burg
lar alarms, etc., etc. Life certainly is
worth living in such a mansion.
There are about five acres of ground
surrounding the house, which Mr. Sabi
chi is cultivating, and which in a few
months will look elegant with lawns,
flowers, fountains, etc. Mr. Geo P.
Jensen was the contractor, and he cer
tainly has done excellent work. Mr.W. T.
Jones was bis superintendent. Tne
plumbing and pipe work around the
house, which in this nineteenth century
is quite a feature in the building of an
expensive residence, was done by Mr. D.
Kavacaugh, of No. 27 San Pedro street.
Mr. Kavanaugh is an artist in bis line,
and has done work upon some of the
largest buildings in our city. The bouse,
altogether, cost about $25,000 and is a
credit to Figueroa street.

"A Terrible Mistake."
Catalina Island, as a pleasure resort, is appre
ciated only by those who have experienced a
day's fishing, a moonlight ride on the
beautiful bay, a bath in the refreshing water,
or a tramp across the hills with a rifle.
Iv failing to visit this wonderful place, with
the attractions that have been added through
the enterprise of Ford &. Myer, who have re
fitted the hotel and increased tbe boating and
bathing facilities, you surely make a terrible
mistake. The hotel will be opened March 15th.
