THE POLICE BOARD. An Opinion on the Fruit- Peddler Matter. CHARGES AGAINST AN OFFICER. A Proposition to Cut Down the Force Discussed and Laid Over for a Week. The Board of Police Commissioners met yesterday afternoon in the City Hall, Mayor Hazard in the chair, and Messrs. Collins, Knox and Lewis present, the ab sent member, Mr. Dextar, being com pelled to remain at home on account of symptoms of "la grippe." It was fuily half an hour after the regular hour be fore a quorum was obtained. A number of demands, amounting iv the aggregate to $267.73, were approved, of which one was for $241 for clubs and belts purchased for the force. The application of H. Sweeney for a transfer of the license now in the name of B. Arembei, at No. 662 San Fernandc Btreet, was granted. The following communication from the City Attorney was received and read: Gentlemen —Replying to your communica tion of the Bth instant, relative to the gelling of fruit from .wagons on the streets of the city of Los Angeles: From an examination of the ordinances bearing upon this subject, I am of the opinion that there is no ordinance now ex isting which prohibit 4 the sale of frnit from wagons upon the public streets, provided the person to selling has procured the proper license for fruit peddlers, and has obtained the permission of the owner of the adjacent prop erty and the consent of the person occupying the street floor of the adjoining building; pro vided further that the Btreet upon which his wagon is standing is oyer fifty feet in width and his vehicle is not within ten feet from any street-crossing, nor at any greater distance than two teet from the edge of the sidewalk, and provided he is not standing in front of the entrance or exit of any theater or place of public amusement or entertain ment. However, the streets are for the use of the traveling public, and no one has a right to obstruct the street in any manner so as to pre vent tbe free use of the street for traveling purposes, and whether the keeping of a wagon standing in a public street Is an obstruction of the same, will depend upon tbe particular facts in the case, such as the amouai of travel at that particular point and the necessity for hav ing the whole street for the purposes of travel. On motion of Mr. Knox the communi cation was ordered to be placed on file and the Chief of Police was directed to Bee that the requirements of the law in such cases were complied with fully. Mr. Knox, of the special committee appointed to investigate the matter of the deficiency inthe wagon number fund, asked for a week's further time in which to make a written report, as, owirg to sickness in his family, he had been una ble to do so during the past week. His request was granted. In the matter of the investigation into the petition of J. Rhodes, which was re ferred to a special committee at the last meeting, Mr. Knox reported that Mrs. Rhodes was the divorced wife of the complainant, who was a drinking man, and on the date in question she sent her little girl over to the saloon to ask the proprietor to send over some beer, as she had frequently done before. Since the decision of the Court in finding Roth guilty, he had put up a sign forbidding minors from enteiiog his saloon under any pretext, and as in the opinion of the committee there was no merit in the charge preferred by Rhodes, he moved that the same Be aieraißaed. iin motion was carried unanimously. Mr. Collins, of tbe special committee appointed to investigate the charges pre ferred against Officers Farmer and Ma guire by Adam Clements, reported that he had seen Clements and explained the ordinances to him. As the officers had been in charge of tbe animals fully half an hour before Clements' man claimed them, and were already on their way to the pound with them, their owner was convinced that they were in the right, and did not therefore wish to press the. charges. On motion of Mr. Collins the same were thereupon dismissed. An affidavit sworn to by ex-Officer £. P. Phelan was read, preferring charges againtt Detective Boequi for conduct unbecoming in an officer. He staled that on Monday, January 6, he met. Bjequi on Fort street, between Third and Fourth streets, about 10 o'clock a. m., and saluted him pleasantly ; but that the officer made use of a vile epithet in return. Oa motion of Mr. Knox the matter was referred to a committee of three for investigation, the Chairman appointing Messrs. Dexter, Knox and A communication was received from Marcus Hellman, the manager of the Los Angeles Baseball and Attiletic Asso ciation, requesting the board to send a patrolman and mounted officer to tbe grounds of the association on the occa sion of games, to protect its interests and property. Alter a lengthy discussion, in which Mr. Collins expressed himself as unwilling to ask the tax-payers to pay for policemen to protect baseball players, the matter wae, on motion of Mr. Knox, referred to the Chief, with power to act. Mr. Lewis said that the all important question to be considered by the city government at the present time was that of retrenchment. Looking at that fact, while he was in favor of helping the city out as much as possible in this endeavor, he did not wish to do anything that would in any way diminish the presort efficient condition of the police force. He therefore offered the following resolution for the approval oi the board: Whereas, Th<t Committee of Retrenchment Is now in session using their best efforts to make the city's income meet its expenses for this year, now therefore be it Resolved, That we, the Board of Police Com missioners recommend tnat the patrolmen's salaries be reduced to $70 per month; and that we discharge five officers from the force, iv the discretion of the Commissioners, making a saving to the city in onr department of $16,500 per year. Tbe matter was discussed at some length, Mayor Hazard stating that he wonld vote for a reduction of the force bat not for a reduction of the salaries, as he was of the opinion that each could not be done legally. Mr. Lewis and the Mayor argued the question as to whether or not a policeman was a city officer un der the charter, the latter reminding the Commissioners that when the matter of policemen receiving rewards was under consideration, they all agreed that the men were unquestionably city officers. Mr. Knox thought that the force conld not be diminished to the extent of more than five men without affecting its efficiency, and although he agreed with the Mayor in the abstract as to reduction or raising of salaries he thought that this was a case where some thing had to be done. He was of the opinion that they could do very well without two Police Matronß for instance, which alone would mean a saving of fl 10 per month, and together with live patrolmen at $400 per month, tbe total retrenchment would amount to over $6,000 per year. If the matter was left to the Council, however, they wonld un doubtedly cat down the force beyond THE LOS AJfGELES DAILY HERALD: THINKS DAY MORKUKQ. JANUARY 16, IBVO. that, and he was in favor of cutting down the salaries to avoid this. Mr. Lewis said that $70 per month was bet ter now than $80 or even $100 was twelve months ago. It was evident that if the board did not take the initiative the Retrenchment Committee, who were not as well posted as to the best interests of the force, would take tbe matter into their own hands. After a pro longed discussion Mayor Hazard offered, as an amendment to the original resolu tion, one to the effect that the number of officers on tbe police force be reduced to sevsnty men, being a saving to the city of $20,000 a year. On motion of Mr. Knox, however, the matter was laid ovor for one week. The applications of G. T. Pratt and R. B. Arey for positions on the force were received and filed. Chief Glass requested the clerk of the board to pay into th* Reward fund of the treasury the sum of $4, received from J. M. Griffith, for services rendered by Detective Bosqui. At his own request the sum of $7 was turned over to Mr. Collins on account of the Fitch burial fund. On motion of Mr. Collins the board recommended to the Council to author ize the board to establish a Police Station at Boyle Heights at an expense of $10 per month, that gentleman having stated that a resident of that district had offered the use of a furnished room, with free use of coal and lamp for the purpose, at that rate. The board then adjourned. RAILWAY NOTES. Crocker's Views—Work In Progress on tlte new Road. Col. Crocker, the Second Vice-Presi dent of the Southern Pacific, has ex pressed himself of the opinion that it is the intention of the Union Pacific to build into Southern California. He sug gests that tbe objective point of the pro posed extension is Mo j aye. He also itates that this means war between tie roads. J. L. Kyse, the Chief Clerk of the pas senger department of the Santa Fe offi jea in this city, leaves his place today. Day after tomorrow a Raymond ex cursion consisting of three cars of tour idts will arrive in this city from Boston over the Santa Fe. The Piocha Record says: ".Escalenta desert, from Milford southwest to this side of Desert Springs, is dotted with men and teams engaged in the work ol grading the roadbed for the railway ex tension from Milford west. A force of men has also begun work on one of the tunnels near Clover Valley, Lincoln county. Supplies of all kinds are arriv ing at Milford, and the original contrac tors, Kilpatrick Bros. & Colins, state that they will at once put 2,500 teams on the line between Milford and Meadow valley wash, and >he work is to be pushed with all possible energy. "The present contemplated entrance to Meadow valley wash is in the vicinity of Culver well Broa.' ranch, about sixteen miles below Panaca. Beyond this point it is not yet determined if the route will ba through the Meadow valley wash south to Las Vegas, or direcUy west to tap the rich mineral districts lying in that direction. The latter route, it is understood, is to do favored, Mt. Irish, west of Hiko, being one principal point. "Whether the road builds south or north from Meadow valley wash, Pi oche will be reached by a branch line. It is more than likely that midsummer of the present year will find us almost, if cot directly, in railroad communication with the outside world." - DAIRY PRODUCTS l lie Formation of a Company to Establish a Depot. A second meeting of those interested in producing and handling dairy prod ucts was held at the Main-street Savings Bank, 326 South Main street yesterday afternoon, the following named gentle men being amongst those present: Ralph E. Hoyt, Chairman, A. H. Den ker, J. B. L*nkersbim, C. W. Blaisdell, J. T, Judd, R. K. McCreery, R. R. Ris don, and Mr. Mather, of Clearwater. The object of this meeting was the forma tion of a company for the establishment of a depot in this city for the sale of dairy products of every description, the en couragement of creameries where they already exist by creating a demand and consequent better prices for high class produc s, togetker with the establishment ot new creameries where practicable; the prime object of all being to supply the trade of this section with these ai tides, and tnus keep at home nearly a million dollars annually, which now leaves this county alone, it being a well-known f&ct that there is no section in the United States better adapted for this purpoEe than is Los Angeles county. Committees were appointed to ascertain the probable cost of starting in this new enterprise, and it is proposed that im mediate steps shall be taken to incor porate and commence operations with out delay. The following Committee on Invitation was appointed : Ralph E. Hoyt, Chair man ; Gail B. Johnson, A. H. Denker, J. B. Lankershim, C. W. Blaisdell, J. M. ; Pitblado, R. R. Riedon, R. K. McCreery and Mr. Mather, of Clearwater. It was urgently requested that each , and every person interested in any way —either produqinir, manufacturing or i handling—will be present at the next i meeting, which is to be held at the above. ' mentioned place on Saturday next at 1 i o'clock p, m., when definite steps will i be taken. CITRUS FAIR. Board ot Directors of too Chamber IQay lake Action. A meeting of tbe Board of Directors of tbe Chamber of Commerce will take place today. The plan for the permanent exhibit and for the furnishing of more commodious rooms for the Chamber will be taken under discussion and from the views already expressed by the members of the boanl it is evident that the scheme will be undertaken. It is possible also that the board will take some action in tbe matter of the failure of the Committee on the Citrus Fair to do any work or make any preparations for the fair. The committee was called to meet yesterday, bet failed to come together. The only person present was Edward Grey, ot Alhambra, who ia one of those opposed to holding any fair. This com mittee was originally appointed by the Chamber of Commerce. It appears that it contains several men who are too busy to give any time to the undertaking, and others who, for various reasons, would like to see the fair abandoned. A good deal of feeling is springing up among members of the' Chamber on the matter, and action may be taken today. Pullman Passengers. The following passengers departed for the North on the 1:40 train yesterday: A. T. Clark, Mrs. Cutter, Will Smith, Miss Hackett, P. C. Carter, H. Bamel, E. K. Baltolph. THE BRICK FAMILY. An Explanation ot What Appeared to be Strange. There appears to hare been a misap prehension in the case of Mary Brice who arrived in New York a week ago and whose husband telegraphed for $75 to take him to her when she only had $80. Mr. Brice called at the Herald office last night and said that there waß a mistake somewhere. He said that in February last he left Englacd, where he had farmed 500 acres and had a bank ac count, and came to California. The prop erty he loft in his wife's possession amounted to twelve or thirteen hundred pounds. He found work at Tehachipi, and sent word to his wife in May to come here. In order to enable his wife to set tle up his affairs there he sent her a power of attorney, and in July laet came to Los Angeles, expecting that she would come about that time. He got word then that the settlement had not been made, and from that time up to the present matters had been hanging fire. He finally got word that bis wife had arrived in New York, and supposing she had brought all of his money with her, tele graphed for $75, which be would use in j going to meet her. He said that he had not been having very good luck in get ting work and did not have the money to spend in going to New York, but be never supposed his wifa would arrive in New York with only $80 in her possession. After he hid sent the telegram h9 received a letter at the postofiice informing him of his wife's circumstances, and lie went to stop the telegram, but it was too late. Mi. Brice says he has been married twenty years and had ten children, nine of whom were alive. He said he did not care so mnch for tbe mone> if he could only have hia wifo and family with him. He'has written to the English Consul to investigate the matter, and will now wait for further information. Hcadluc Tltoui Off. The owners of the vacant land about the Wolfakill depot have been very much annoyed at the practice prevailing among the hack drivers and teamsters who fre quent that neighborhood of making cross roads ovor the land regardless of boundaries. To head off the intruders the owners have had several men at work for the'last two or three days dig ging large and deep trenches across the land in such a way as to intersect the improvised roads. A number of the hack drivers failed to notice these during the day and last night were very nearly upset in driving over them. Installation or Officers. The following officers of Gauntlet Lodge No. 129, of the order of Knights of Pythias were installed Monday evening, District Deputy Grand Chancellor Sedg wick, of Pasadena, officiating: P. C, F. Watson; Ch. C, M. R Lew; V. Ch., Olive A. Richey; K. of R. & Seal, R. H. Raphael; M, F., H. A. Baurne; M. E., George Z. Whirley ; Prelate, —. Tabor; M. at A., F. W. Lichtenthalor; I. G, M. Siegel; O.
