THE POLICE BOARD.
A Warm Session Breaksjtne monot ony. The Board of Police Commissioners met yesterday afternoon in the Mayor's office, Hon. H. T. Hazard in the chair, and Messrs. Gollinß, Dexter, Knox and Lewis present. The Chief having reported favorably in the matter of the application of NaudA Grindle for a permit to procure a license for a new saloon at No. 557 North Main street, the petition was granted. The committee appointed to investi gate tho charge preferred against the driver of the patrol wagon by Ralph E. Hoyt reported that, after hearing the evi dence on both eides, it was tbe opinion of the committee that both parties were equally to blame for the accident. They therefore recommended that the bill for repaira rendered neceeaary to the com plainant's buggy be shared equally by the owner and the driver of the patrol wagon. The committee farther recom mended that the latter exercise more caution in future when driving, and that he keep on the right aide of the street. The report was adopted. The committee appointed to investi gate tho petition of Maltman & Ivera et al. relative to the appointment of a special officer for the Poundmaster'e office, reported that aftor due considera tion of the matter they could not see the desirability of delegating any further authority to the Poundkeeper. The re port waa adopted. Transfers of license were granted to tho followinesaloonkeepers: Jaa. Tharp, from No. 565 Eaat Firat atreet to No. 573 East First street; Fritz Wanetke. from No. 250 East First street to No. 365 East Firat street; and C. Knoblock, from cor ner Main and Winston streets to corner Main and Fourth streets. A communication was received from Mrs. H. A. Watson, of the Girls' Home, stating that since March last she had been compelled to pay for a telephone ou at the Home, the Republican admin istration having ordered the one put up by Mayor Workman taken down. She therefore asked that the commission authorize her to have one, and that the city defray the expenses necessarily en tailed. On motion of Mr. Lewis the re quest was denied. A communication was received from John Rhodes, asking that the license of Louis Roth, who kept a saloon at No. 141 East First street, be revoked, as he had been caught by the petitioner in the act of giving beer to his little girls, ag«d respectively 12 and 14 years, on the 3d of December last. Since that time Roth had been convicted of the offense of selling liquor to minors, in the Police Court, and fined $25. On motion of Mr. Knox the maLter was referred to Messrs. Knox, Lewis and Dexter, as a committee of investigation. A communication was received from Adam Clements, a liveryman on Aliso street, preferring charges against Officers Maguire aud Farmer. He alleged that on the 7th inst. six of his horses escaped from his yard on Aliso street, and were subsequently found on the Keller traot by his partner and a hired man. The officers are alleged, however, to have re fused to allow the hired man to take possession of the animals, and in spite of his protests impounded them. The mutter was referred to a committee of in vestigation composed of Mr. Collins and the Chief. At the suggestion of Mr. Knox, of the committee of investigation into the com plaint of Mrs. Henry against W. Vollk mer, of tbe Point saloon, further action in the matter was indefinitely postponed, the saloon-keeper having been warned not to furnish with liquor. The application of J. R. Home for re instatement on the force was received and filed. A number of demands, ag gregating $409 69 were approved as read Tbe demand of Garrett & Sampson for $110 for expenses incidental on the funeral of the late Officer G. B. Fitch again came up before the board. A lengthy discussion was indulged in on the question of its disposal. Mr. Coliius thought that the Commissioners and the Police Department ought to meet it be tween them and not call upon the city to pay it. The officers were paid a gocd salary, and he had no doubt that if called upon to do so, every man on the force would gladly put up $1 towards de fraying the expenses of their brother officer's funeral. Mr. Knox *aid that there was already the sum of $7 60 in the hands of Chief Glass for the purpose, and he was in favcr of sending the bill to the Council again, with a communication to the effect, that that sum would b3 applied to the payment of the bill if the Council would approve the rest of it. Mayor Hazard ohjected to asking the city to pay for it, as it would establish a precedent in such cases, and in the pres ent state of the city finances he readily understood that the Council did not see its way to approving such a bill. Mr. 0 >lliu' said he was ashamed of tbe bill being brought up before the public so often, and was ready to contribute towards it at any time, sooner than see it thrown backwards and forwards be tween the Council and board as it had been done. Mr. Knox said that he did not think that the board could call upon the police officers to contribute towards the payment of the bid, and Mr. Lewie insisted that the city paid its men a stated salary and obtained its full worth from every man in return, and it would not be right to "dock" the men for any purpose. Chief Glass stated that at the time of Fitch's death the officers held a meeting in the G. A. R. hall and every man sub scribed something to defray the expenses of the funeral. The $7.60 was the bal ance left from the fund after paying for the band and several other incidental expenses. He said that the men under stood at the time that Fitch had a bank account; but it was afterwards found that he had not. Finally the bill was referred to Mr. Collins at his own request until the next meeting. Councilman Van Dupen, who with Mr. McLain had been an interested spectator of the meeting, asked permis sion to speak a few words on the subject. He said that he had heard this matter discussed frequently of late and that although the Council wanted to liquidate the bill, it could not do so at present. On behalf of that body, however, he said that if the officers and Commissioners would subscribe towards the payment of the bill he would guarantee that the members of the Council would also do so, and by this means it could be dis posed of. Mr. Lewis stated that he and Mr. Knox, in conjunction with the Chief, had, as a committoe, advertised for bid for supplies to be furnished to the city prisoners for one year. At that time he understood that Rawoon was willing to surrender his contract at any time; but now it appeared that he had enterod a protest against any infringement of his righto. A communication was read from Raw son to that effect, whereupon Chief Glass stated that Rawron had told him that "he did not give a fig for his contract THE LOS AffGELKS DAIIT HERALD: THURSDAY MORfIING, JANUARY 9,1690. and would be glad to get rid of it." The restaurant man who supplied the meals, however, wanted $100 to let go bis end of the contract, and this was why Raw son was protesting. After some discus sion it was finally decided to suspend all further arrangements until April Ist, Rawson's contract being void in May next. The Chief then stated that sometimes the food was not fit for a hog to eat, and he asked for in structions on such an occasion. On motion of Mr. Knox he was instructed to critically inspect all food provided by the contractor.and reject all that was unfit for uae and purchase other edibles, the sum thus spent at the end of each month to be deducted from Rawaon's bill. Mr. Lewis of the Lottery Committee reported .that upon investigation it was found that Sections 319 to 326 of the Penal Code were being habitually violated by the persons named in the report of Detective Wallin, aud that certain newspaper publishera had violated section 323. The commis sion therefore offered the following reso lution for approval by the board: Reaolved, Ttiat it is the sense of this Board of Police Commissioners that all the statutes of the State of California prohibiting lotteries be vigorously and literally enforced, and that the Chief of Police be and ia hereby instructed and directed to use hia utmoat efforts to abso lutely suppreeß all lottery games, either Chinese or white, and to convict and punish any and all violators of the stat utes. On motion of Mr. Collins the resolu tion was adopted unanimously. Mr. Lewis then brought up the ques tion of Cobb, the orange peddler, where upon Mayor Hazard warmly stated that Cobb had been to him and asked for his permission as Mayor to sell oranges on the streets, as he had done for tv.enty years past, but that he had refused to grant it, and referred him to the com mission. That body, including Mr. Lewis, had granted Cobb the required permission a few meetings ago, and with the assurance that he would be unmo lested he had purchased $2,605 worth of the finest oranges in the State, and now that he had done so, there was a scheme on foot to drive him off the street.". Mr. Collins produced a volume of the ordinances, and after reading, said that he waa confident Cobb was safe and kfnew his rights. Mayor Hazard said that if anyone had made complaint about Cobb, let him swear to a complaint in the courts and have him arrested. The Mayor and Mr. Lewis then had a spirited tilt on 1 ho ques tion, the latter asserting that he didn't want any lectures from the Chairman or anybody else. He was there to do his duty, and he intended to do it. He stated that tie was not complaining personally, but the occupants of the fruit stands,who paid rent, were. Four of the Commis sioners had discussed the matter yester day, and he would like to have their opinion on the question. Mayor Hazard insisted that if Cobb was not violating the ordinance read by Mr. Collins, the Chief or the police had no right to molest him, and that Cobb waa quite right in defying the officers. If he was doing so he ought to be arrested ; but he objected to the reflections cast upon him lor his part of tbe affair. Mr. Dexter was sorry that any trouble had arisen out of the matter, but he be lieved that all the ordinances should be enforced; if they were objectionable, they should be repealed. It was not clear in his mind whether Cobb had vio lated the ordinance or not just at pres ent, and he would therefore eigree with both sides for the present. Mr. Collioe reiterated the statement he made on Tuesday afternoon at the com mission meeting in the Chief's office, with reference to enforcing all the ordi nances. He held that it was impossible to do so, and cited a number of instances where ordinances were daily infracted; whereupon Mr. Knox said that Mr. Col lins' language was puerile and childish and utterly unworthy of a Police Com missioner of the city of Los Angelea. It was evident that Mr. Collins did not understand his duties, ai d he was alto gether too Machiavellian for him. Mr. Lewis' motion to refer the question to the City Attorney, with a request to him to give a written opinion as to whether Cobb was violating the ordi nance, was carried unanimously, and the board adjourned.
