Mat •! Toan Appointed oy the t
Police commission, p
Two o'clock yesterday afternoon was <
the hour for which a large number of i
citizens were anxiously waiting, and it
was also the hour which others dreaded,
lor it was then that it was expected the ,
Police Commissioners would make the ,
changes in the force. When 2 o'clock t
arrived, there was a long line of appli- j
cants for Dositions standing on tho side- (
walk in front of the Bryson Block, and ,
all afternoon they kept their positions, i
waiting for the news which did not come i
until just before the clock struck five. ]
Mayor Hazird called the meeting to ,
order with Messrs. Lindley, Knox, Fur- )
rey and Bilderrain present. The pay- ,
roll of the force for March was audited (
and several bills were sent to the Council
lor payment.
A communication was received from
Chief Burns, asking that the Board re
commend the adoption of an ordinance
by the Council providing for a force con
■isting of one captain at $126 per month,
one clerk at $100 per month, three ser
geants at $90 per month, twelve mounted
men at $95 per month, one mounted ser
geant at $100 per month, two patrol wagon
drivers at $75 per month, and eighty i
footmen at $S0 per month; also that $400
per month be appropripted each month
for the Street Service fund. i
A short discussion followed in relation ]
to the Street Service fund, as to whether
It would be left to the Chief to expend or i
whether the Commission would assume i
that responsibility. It was finally de- I
cided that the money should be ex
pended by the Chief. The request of the
Chief was granted.
When the matter of granting saloon
licenses came up Chief Burns suggested
that a rule be established requiring that
applicants for licenses furnish a history
of. themselves with a sufficient number
of endorsements by tbe property ownerß.
He was empowered to prepare a proper
form for such applications.
A transfer of saloon license from T. J.
Cuddy to Messrs. Lacey and Webber was
granted, and it was ordered that in the
future both parties to the transfer sign
such petitions.
The list of the officers on the force yes
terday morning who were applicants for
positions was read.
A list of 277 names of applicants for
positions was read, and a recess of fifteen
minutes was taken to consider them.
During the recess Mr. Hervey Lindley
asked to be excused, as he had import
ant business which could not be delayed.
He said he would vote favorably on the
recommendation of Chief Burns for
officers. Mr. Knox, who was ill, stayed
a few minutes longer and also asked to
be excused as he did not feel well. He
bad no names to recommend and he
would be satisfied with those chosen by
Chief Burns.
At 4 o'clock the Board reconvened and
Major Furrey moved that it proceed to
the appointment of the force. Carried.
He then moved that the force be put
on at a salary of so much per month,
subject to removal at the pleasure of the
Board, and that a pro rata amount be
deducted for the time lost; that each
man appointed be examined by the City
Physician and present a certificate within
ten days that lie iB physically capable.
The motion was carried.
Major Furrey moved that the Board
proceed to the selection of officers to the
number of 100 carried.
Mr. Bilderrain then presented the fol
lowing names' which had been approved
by Chief Barns:

The Board then adjourned until Mon
day afternoon at 2 o'clock.
Mr. Danron Ihi nils f fit re Should
be an Investigation.
The question as to whether or not the
cattle quarantine bill passed tho Assem
bly is still agitating the minds of those
interested, snd the ddvelopments which
cropped Hp yesterday leave the whole
affair in about as unsatisfactory a condi
tion as on the preceding day. It will be
remembered that on Friday Mr. C. F.
Smurr, of the Southern Pacific, and As
semblyman Damron telegraphed to Sac
ramento to have the records investigated.
Replies to both dispatches camo yester
day, that to Mr. Smurr reading: "In
answer to your wire, the records indicate
that the bill is effective, as per my wire
of tbe 25th."
The answer that Mr. Damron got was
not at all that he dssired. He bad tele
graphed to Mr. Mawlin to have the
records thoroughly looked over, but that
gentleman simply responded: "The bill
was approved on March 19, 1889."
"I don't like the way the thing looks
at all," said Mr. Damron to a Herald
man when conversing about the subject.
"I will just tell you what I know about
it," he continued, "aud then you can
draw your own conclusions. The bill
was introduced to the Senate by a
special committee Bnd passed that
body, after which, in due course of
events it came to the House, where it
was introduced by Mr. Storke, of Santa
Barbara. I was sitting by young Mr.
McMnllen, of San Joaquin, and we both
made opposition speeches, pointing out
certain irregularities in its construction,
as well as the injustice of it. It was
voted upon and thrown out by a big ma
jority. Then Mr. Rennison, of
Monterey, moved to have it recor
sidered, and this was passed. The
next day both McMnllen and I
watched to see if it would come,
ap, but there were no signs of its appear
ance. As I had to be on a committee
that evening and the motion for recon
sideration held good until 12 p.m., I
went to Rennison and asked him if he
intended to call the matter up.
" 'No,' he replied, 'we have decided to
let it drop.'
"I also saw Storke and he made a sim
iliar statement. It is, of course, barely
possible that they, however, called up
the bill at the evening session, but I
doubt it very much as I would have
noticed it in the journals. I am, there
fore, almost certain that the bill
did not pass the House. How
it ever got to the Governor
is a matter that demands investigation.
It is possible that the clerks sent it in by
mistake, and then again it may have
been taken to the executive by those
who seem to have been so desirous of
getting it passed.
Dr. Orme has also been investigating
the matter. He has been searching his
copy of Bruce's records, and finds that
the measure passed the Senate, and was
signed by the Governor, but there is no
note of it having gone through tho As
It la to be Completed by November
Fearing that as the contract for the
Government building in Los Angeles had
been made out late during the Cleveland
administration, there might be some
delay in proceeding with it,
Colonel Hewitt on behalf, and at
the request of a number of citi
zens here, wrote to Senator Stanford re
questing him to do all in his power to
keep the matter from being pigeon
holed. The Governor acted at once,
and yesterday Colonel Hewitt re
ceived from him the correspond
ence showing what had been done.
In reply to a letter from Governor Stan
ford, the supervising architect of the
Treasury announces that instructions
have been forwarded to Mr. Larmour to
1 commence operations at once. The most
important item among the documents
was one stating that tho contract whick
has been signed, calls for the completion
of the building on or before November
9th, this year. The contractors, Messrs.
Collins & Hargitt, have already received
their instructions in the matter, for they
have commenced excavating the site.

water for the table; and, as tbe sun sinks to his
rest on the broad billows of the Western sea,
bright flimes leap forth from 2,500 electric

Santa Catalina Island.
Catallna Island, as a pleasure resort, is appre
ciated only by those who have experienced a
day's fishing, a moonlight ride on the

or a tramp across the hills with a rifle.
In 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 the boating and
bathing fscilltles, you surely make a terrible
mistake. The hotel is now open. The new
steamer Hermosa is making regular trips as
per schedule. See advertisement.

On the Influence of Cold
Production of Diseases of tlie Lmifi
Different Plans of Treatment,
S. 0., specialist In diseases of the Head,
Throat and Chest, including the Eye, Ear and
The state of the atmosphere impresses itself
directly on Ihe mucous lining of the nasal pas
sages, throat windpipe, bronchial tubes and
air-cells of the lungs. Sudden changes in the
temperature of the air are immediately felt over
the whole of this extended surface. Coolness
and humidity render the air irritating to tho
mucous membrane, irritation ends in conges
tion, and congestion is the first stage of inflam
mation—the parent of all those chronic catarrh
al affections of the nose, throat and bronchial
tubes, which ultimately end in consumption.
Nearly eighty per cent, of the cases of con
sumpiion begin hy congestion of tho mucous
membrane of the nasal passages, throat and
bronchial lubes produced by colds. To that
extent, therefore, consumption sprincs directly
from tbe damp and changeable weather. It is
inflammatory and purely local in its early stage
—quite as much so as inflammation of the eyes
or quinsy of the throat, and must be treated In
the same direct manner.
It is a rule of medical practice, established by
ages of experience, lhat every dircase which is
local—that is to say, ha* its seat in any one
organ or part of the body—requires for its core
the direct applicaiion of the remedies to such
organ or part. When this can be done, the
disease is generally curable, and when it can
not be done it is,ll serious, generally fatal. The
same mucous membrane is spread over the
globe of tbe eye, lines the tear passage and in
ternal surface of tbe nose, covers the throat,
passes down tbe windpipe, and becomes the
lining of the delicate and innumerable air cells
of the lungs. When cold produces inflamma
tion of the eye in one person and acute catarrh
of the head in another, tho cauße, the disease
and the membranes affected are alike in every
respect. When cold produces a sore throat in
one person and conge.-tiou of the lungs in
ano'lier, there is no difference in tbe diseased
action of the two care?, or in the principles of
treatment required for their cure. It. is mu
cous membrane that is involved in both cases.
But many treat theso similar diseases oi same
membrane widely different, and, as a conse
quence, cure one and fail to cure the other.
For tho eye they apply eyewashes and oint
ments directly to the inflamed parts and are
generally successful. In the no»e 1b applied
nothing to the diseased parts and catarrh be
comes seated and is thought to be incurable.
For an inflamed throat they prescribe gargles
and applications to the throat, and generally
cure. For the same disease a little lower down
—in the windpipo and bronchial tubes—they
make no direct application, but dose the pa
turn's stomach, and as a consequence often
fall to cure Would it not be foolish to pretend
to cure an inflamed eye or a soro throat by dos
ing the stomach. Well, It is just as greet a
mistake to treat catarrh and diseases of the air
passages of th,e lungs by dosing tbe stomach
The fatality of lung diseases is not due, as
many people suppose, to tho malignity of their
nature or the importance of their breathing
organs. It is the Inevitable result of gross neg
lect of the means of cure within tho reach of
all. Properly treated by direct medication,
lung diseases are as curablo as other maladies.
If any saiisfactory result were attained bs
constitution treatment alone in lung coses—ll
they cured considerable proportion of such
cases—it might reasonably be doubted whether
the direct troatmentof inhalation could accom
plish belter results. But the fact is, they do but
very little good. Even in hespita's, where the
diet, exercise and general habits, as well as
their medical treatment, are entirely under the
control of physicians, very few well defined
diseases of the lungs can be shown to have been
cured by the stcmach treatment out of every
thousand cases so treated. It has been so uni
formly unsuccessful that most people have
come to regard consumption as equivalent to
the hand ot death! In giving it up, therefore
those having lung diseases abandon nothing'
save the certainty of an earthly grave for a hone
of life and health.
Now, look at the results attained by the direct
troatrnent of tho lungs by inhalation. In all
ordinary casos of catarrh, bronchitis and
astiima, improvement immediately takes place
and they go on to complete cure. In consump
tion the disease is more obstinate, hut these
cases ultimately get well. Even in desperate
cases benefits always result from inhalations
and we can point to hundreds of such cases
which were given over to die and pronounced
hopeless, and yet recovered and are now living.
These facts are easily certified to by thousands
of living witnesses at the present day.
