THE CITY COUNCIL. A Large Amount of Business Transacted. THE NEW SALARY ORDINANCE. The Police Force Increased to Ninety Men — Other Changes Made. The City Council met yesterday morn ing, President Frankenfield in the Chair and Messrs. McLain, Summerland, Shafer, Hamilton, Wirsching, Van Dusen, Bonsall and Brown present. A message from the Mayor announcing that he had appointed R. W. Burnham as Sealer of Weights and Measures, was received. Mr. Bonsall suggested that, as there had been no ordinance passed relating to the duties of that officer, he would move that action be postponed one week. Carried. A message was received from the Mayor, returning without his approval an ordinance regulating the salaries of city officers. Mr. Shafer moved to reconsider the ordinance. Carried, and the matter was referred to a committee of the whole. Police Judge W. T. Owens was granted a thirty-days' leave of absence on account of ill health. The Street Superintendent and City Attorney recommended that the Los An geles Cable Company be allowed to go ahead with its engine house on Downey •venue. Adopted. The Street Superintendent recom mended that Alexandria street be graded. Adopted. Police Judge Stanton asked for a court room. Action deferred for one week. Tax Collector Thompson announced that he had appointed O. C. Smith as License Collector. The recommendations of tbe Park Commission, Police Commission, Board of Health, and Fire Commission as pub lished heretofore, were referred to a Com mittee of the Whole. Tbe bonds of F. H. Dalton as Water Overeeer, aud Dr. MacGowan were ap proved, as also were the contract and bond of Frick Bros., for putting in a storm drain at Main, Spring and Ninth ■treets. The report of the Board of Public Works as published in Sunday's Hebald was read and adopted. The Finance Committee recommended that the City Treasurer be allowed one deputy; that the Street Superintendent be allowed three deputies at $100 per month each, and one clerk at $80 per month; that the matter of allowing the City Auditor a deputy be deferred for one week; that no supplies be purchased by any of the city officers except upon orders from the Supply Committee. The report was adopted. The City Attorney was empowered to have the necessary forms for street work printed, together with pamphlets con taining the street laws. An ordinance providing for the widen ing of Los Angeles street, between First and Second streets, was read and laid over for a week. City Engineer Eaton presented the fol lowing report on the outfall sewer. Immediately on receiving the resolution of your Committee on Finance relative to the construction of an outfall sewer, I held a con ference with the proprietors of the Kedondo snd luglewood properties to see what arrange ments could be made for securing tbe right-of way over their grounds and su ocean disposal frontage thereon. The gentlemen state that developments recently made in their water supply will be endangered from pollution by the construction of a sewer over tbe route con templated by the original design, and that they could not, iv justice to themselves and the per sons they have sold land to, permit the location of a sewer through their lands where it would cause a prejudice, even if, as a matter of fact, the water supply was not injured thereby. They stated, however, that no obstacles would be met from them in obtaining the right-of way, providing the objection above stated was removed and the sewer discharged into the ocean st least two miles north of Kedondo. I have made investigations for a route further south than the one proposed to construct over, but the distance was f. und to be greater. There were no estimates made as to the rela tive cost, as it was not well situated for the irrigation of the lands at that time proposed to apply the sewage. I consider the route worth giving further consideration, in view of the tact that the same objection as regards the pollution of water ezlßts to a greater extent over the Ballona route than the one by way of Inglewood; besides o.her obstacles have been presented, all of which, of course, must be set aside if the Ballona route is chosen. I will place an outiall surveying party in the field to-oay. and hope to report something more definite at your next regular meeting. lam detailing the internal system and will have all the data in about ten days necessary in preparing resolutions snd advertising for the construction of all sewers in East Los An geles. The construction of the sewers in the Arroyo de los Reyes district will also be ar ranged for at once. The City Engineer also reported on various petitions which had accumulated in his office. The matter of carrying the Zanja made under the cable road on First street was referred to the Zanja Committee, the City Engineer and the City Attorney. Afternoon Session. The Gas Committee recommended the erection of an electric light mast in East Los Angeles. Mr. Shaffer opposed the recommenda tion on the ground that the funds were not large enough to warrant the estab lishment of more lights. It was stated that the light was neces sary, as tbe region was in total darkness, and a single burner would be all that is necessary. Major Bonsall said tbat the question with him was whether the electric works could furnish enough power to supply any more lights. The recommendation was adopted, and the committee was instructed to in quire into the question of power. On motion of Mr. Shafer, the Chief of Police was instructed that after April Ist no bills will be allowed for special police except when a special permit is issued by the Council. Judge Ling appeared on behalf of the people of East Los Angeles and objected to the driving of cattle over the streets of the city. The people there had graded the streets and had planted trees, but the streets were sometimes filled with droves of cattle and hogs, and the trees and fences were broken. The people who drive the cows are very insolent. Only Sunday a drove of cattle came down the Mission road and broke his trees down. Mr. Shafer moved that the City Attor ney draw an ordinance prohibiting cattle from being driven through the streets in larger droves than five. Carried. A resolution from Mr. Wirsching, ask ing that the California Bridge Company be eiven no further time to construct its biidges was laid on the table. Petitions were received and referred to the proper committees, from the Eight- Hour League, asking that eight hours be made a legal day's work. Referred to the City Attorney to report at the next meeting; from property owners on Rosas street, protesting against the laying of a sewer; from property owners asking that a culvert be enlarged under Temple LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD TUESDAY MORNING, APRIL 2, 1889. street; from property owners in several localities for electric lights; from prop erty owners on Lake Shore avenue for a storm water drain; from property owners on Soto street to have the same graded; from taxpayers, calling attention to a dangerous bridge on Boyle avenue; from Los Angeles Cable Railroad Company, stating that it was ready to build tbe zanja made over First street; from John Hubbell et al. for the opening of Alva rado Btreet; from C. N. Stevenson in re lation to tbe grade on Fourth street; from the contractors of the Government building, asking to be allowed to con struct sheds on the street in front of the proposed building, (granted under the rules); from 8. W. Darby et al., for damages caused by the storm; from R. R. Brown in reference to a sewer on Spring street; from C. Finkham et al., protesting to the paving of Second street, between Fort and Olive; from R. R. Brown, asking to have a pond at the intersection of First and and Olive drained (referred to Superin tendent of Streets to drain the same); from J. G. Higgins et al., asking that the Cable Company be required to place Grand avenue in order; from Frank Bishop, to be appointed electrician; from property-owners on Sainsevaiu street objecting to the sewer; from J. Richards to lease reservoir No. 5 to put in pleasure boats; from J. L. Whipple, asking that a neighbor be restrained from collecting rent for city land; from the I. O. O. F., asking permission to change its place of burial; from residents of Boyle Heights, to compel the City Water Company to supply them with water; from citizens on Seventh street, to have the electric railroad poles on Seventh street declared a nuisance. Major Bonsall offered a resolution in structing the City Attorney to draw an ordinance preventing the people from subdividing their lands until a plat of the same be approved by the Council. Adopted. Major Bonsall also offered a resolution instructing the Street Superintendent to notify the Gas and Water Companies to put their pipes down before the streets are graveled and graded. Adopted. On metion of Mr. McLain, the Street Superintendent was instructed to stop the overflow of water on Deep Water street. Mr. McLain moved that the regrading of Sand street be looked after by the Board of Public Works. Carried. The Street Superintendent was in structed to construct a bridge over the Zanja Madre on First street. The Council then resolved Itself into a Committee of the Whole, with Major Bonsall in the chair, to consider the recommendations of the various com missions. The request of the Park Commission for a Superintendent of Parks and three assistants, with such laborers not to ex ceed 30, was read. Mr. Shafer asked how much money could be set aside for the parks. Mr. Hamilton suggested that a certain per cent, of the salary fund be set each month. He was informed that there would not be enough money in this fund to set any aside. Dr. Bryant said that at present the Park Commission could do nothing, as no ordinances had been passed by the Council giving it power. Mr. Frankenfield moved that when the committee arise it report in favor of having the City Attorney draw an ord inance in accordance with the request of the Commission. Carried. Mr. Frankenfield also moved that it be recommended that $5,000 of the Salary Fund be set aside for the Park Fund. Carried. The Clerk then read the ordinance fix ing the salaries of the officers. Mr. Frankenfield moved that the Sealer of Weights and Measures receive $1,500 instead of $1,800 per year. Mr. Sum merland moved that the salary remain ai $1,800. (No second.) Mr. Franken field's motion was carried. The section in relation to the Police Judges were stricken out until the ques tion of jurisdiction is decided. It was decided to allow the salary and duties of the Mayor's clerk to stand as it was, at $150 per month. The request of the Police Commission for one Captain at $125, one clerk to the Chief at $100, three sergeants at $90, twelve mounted police at $95, one mounted sergeant at $100, eighty regular footmen at $80, was read. Mr. Shafer thought that this was too much. According to his idea seventy officers in all were enough to protect the city which, also, according to his idoa, had not grown any larger in a year. Mr. Wirsching was in favor of giving the Police Board what it asked. Mr. Summerland moved that the re quest of the Police Commissioners be granted. Mr. Frankenfield suggested that the smaller number be tried first, and then, if it was found necessary, the number could be increased. Mr. Shafer moved that there be eight instead of twelve mounted men, and sixty instead of eighty footmen. Mr. Van Dusen did not want to see the number reduced. Mr. Hamilton moved that the footmen be seventy in number and the mounted men be ten in number. Lost by a vote of 3 to 6. Mr. Shafer's motion was lost by a vote of 3 to 6. The motion of Mr. Summerland, that the request of the Commission be grant ed, was lost by a vote of 4 to 5. Mr. Hamilton moved that the force be fixed at ninety men. Mr. Wirsching moved that the force be fixed at ninety-eight. Lost, by a vote of 6 to 3. Mr. Hamilton's motion was carried by a vote of 5 to 4. The salary of tne Assistant Chief of the Fire Department was fixed at $100 per month; engineers, $110; drivers, $80; foremen, $25; tillermen, $00; callmen, $25. The Board of Health was allowed three sanitary inspectors, $75; one keeper of the Pest house, at $C 0; one assistant health officer, who shall also be police surgeon, and devote his whole time to the city for $150 per month. Provision was made for a superintend ent of fire alarm at $75 per month. The captain of the chaingang was placed under the direction of the Superintendent of Streets and the Police Commission. The City Janitor was allowed $00 per month. The allowances as to the deputies in each oflice were made as recommended by the Finance Committee.
