Keefe, Kuhrts and Moore as such committee, with instructions to re port at the next meeting of the board. Mr. Keefe asked that the Chief be in structed to investigate into the cause of the lameness of one of the horses lately purchased for the department from Rich ard Gird. Chief Strohru reported that from what he could learn of tho matter, the horse had been kicked by his stable companion in play ; but nothing definite was known of how it occurred.

A Remarkable Showing as RcKurdt Circulation. The Board of Directors of the Los An geles Public Library met yesterday after noon, President Dobinson in the chair, and Directors F. H. Howard, J. Mills Davies and H. Jay Hanchette and the Librarian, Miss T. L. Kelso, present. The book committee reported that it had not selected many new books during the month, preferring to wait until all the orders now out have been received. The auditing committee reported favoi ably upon a number of demands, which were approved and ordered paid. The special committee on the newspaper room reported that it had caused a new arrangement of the newspapers, which seemed to have met with general satis faction. The Librarian, Miss Kelso, reported that during the month $150 had been re ceived from dues and $7.80 for fines. She also reported that 1,070 new books and ten new periodicals had b6en placed on the shelves and added to the library. The circulation during the month had been 10,500 and the registration seventy five. She called attention to the fact that although the library contained but THE LOSA-fGftil.ES DAILY HERALD: THURSDAY MORNINa FEBRUARY 6 18,0. 11,000 volumes and the city had only a population of 85 000, the record placed it for ahead of libraries containing men books in larger cities. Take, for in stance, tbe Mercantile Library in San Francisco, wi h 58,634 volumes. Tnoro the monthly issue of books i* but 2,754, with a population of about 350,000. In the same city the Public Library, which is entire!v free, and has 50,000 books and three branch libraries, the issue of books ia but 13,781 per month. In Detroit, with a p >polation of 170,000, and 88 822 volumes in ihe library, theiseueof books is bu- 19,200 per month. Grand Kapids, Michigan, has a population of 65,000, and its library contains 21,485 volmues. The issue of books each month averages 8,193 volumes. Omaha has the same popu'ation as Los Angelep, but its library contains twice as many books, 22,982, and the circulation there foils short of the figures of the library here by ]25 per month. Taking these figures and repre senting the Los Angeles public library at 100. Omaha is 49; San Francisco, 51..;S 1 ..; Grand Lt*pids, 52; Detroit, 14.<. The Librarian stated that it was considered in big libraries a good showing if all the b.oks were turned over once in six months, but the records of the Los An geles library showed that its booky were turned over once a mouth. On motion the clerk was instructed to request the Council to take action upon the communication in reference to the ventilation of the readinsr rooms, sent to that body a month ago and referred to the building committee, which had not reported upon the same. The clerk was instructed to enter into a correspondence with Eastern parties to obtain information in reference to cata lonuing the library. The board then adjourned. BAIL WAY MATTKES. Travel (Mcklnir lp-A I'nton I'n clflc Off iclak's Apyroacblue Visit. Local travel is on the increase. The trains to Santa Monica and Redondo were well filled yesterday. Tho hot weather which has prevailed for the last few days has given a good many people the opportunity which they have been wishing for to visit the seashore. Travel to all local points and bteween this city and San Francisco id also becoming rather more lively. The city receives, however, only a slim allowance of excur sionists from the East. The mildness of the winter beyond the Rockies and the general prevalence oi the grippe there tiave kept back travel. The prospects are that ie will pick up from this on, aud that hy a month from now the hotels will be well filled. The shipping of oraoges continues to occupy all the attention of the freight people. Special trains laden with the fruit leave the city en both the Southern Pacific and Santa Fo roads. Yesterday a special of seven'een cars went north on the Southern Pacific and twenty-three went east on the sanie line. Nr-xt Saturday C. F Mellon, ceneral truthc manager of the Union Pacific, will arrive in this city, .md after a stay of a day or two, w ill go to San Diego and then return East. It ii believed that this visit is one of special significance, in view of tbe now acknowledged intention of the road to build to Los Angeles. C. L. Canfield, the general agent at San Francieco for the Chicago, Milwaukee and Sc. Paul, arrived in the city yester day. Ho will be here for several days. jiThe Patti special of twelve cars will pi.se through this city tomorrow on the South ern Pacific. There- will be an excursion to Coro nado Boach on the Santa Fe next Satur day. LAWYER* V.S. DOCTORS. A Great liuine of Uaaeball in the -.i n future. A great game of baseball is on the tapis, one that will command the atterv tion of every citizen of Los Angeles and fill the ball grounds to overflowing with all the youth, beauty, wisdom and fash ion of the city. The lawyers have been seriously considering for some time the possibility of being able to argue with the umpire better than the physicians, and they have at last come to the conclu sion thut they can gain a final decision in their favor without the necessity of filing briefs. They therefore issue a challenge to the physicians of the city to play them at a date here after to ba fixed, the proceeds to be turned over to the Ladies' Benev olent S.ciety. Matters have already gone so far tnat a portion of the players on the legal side of the question have already been assigned positions. So far as arranged, Senator R. F. Del Valle will be eh rt stop, Judge J. W. Hendrick will take care of second base, Lieutenant Governor S. M. White will stand in center field, City Attorney Chas. McFdrland will stop the balis at first base, and Judge Clark will be in the right field. Judge W. S. _ Van Dyke is noted for the twirls he can give the sphere, and with Henry OWlelveney behind the borne plate the batters will have a buic.ll chance of diagnosing their own case, al though toey may be called upon to K< vt; a clinic or perform operations after each inning. If the physicians desire to take up the glove thin cast at them they should place themselves in commuuica ion with Hon. R. F. Del Valie, who is to be the captain of the nine. East Mrte JVotes. There has been hue little news except fresh cases of the trip for a week past. Mr. Louis Collette has gone north to accept a position in a wholesale house. The many patrons of Home & Abel's will miss him. On Monday morning the wife of Henry Whitham presented him with an addi tion to their already large family, in the shape of a fine girl. The new arrival is very vigorous and healthy for its age. The residents in the neighborhood of Kuhrta and Clover streets are rejoicing over the fact that they bave at last ob tained t' c catch basin at the corner of those streets, which they have been peti tioning for ever since the storm drains were constructed. It will, in all proba bility, be clear the balance of the year. Mrs. Towr. who lives a couple of miles below Florence, drovo in with a two horse !eum '.o visit friends in East Los Angeles. "While driving out New Main street, her horses took fright at some thing, and ran away, throwing her out and wrecking tho vehicle against a post, She was carried into a house near the Kuhrts-slre6t bridge, and the patrol wagon being summoned, she was taken to the police station for treatment. It was found that her right shoulder and two ribs were broken, in addition to sevefal severe bruises and some internal injuries, and she was at once taken to St. Paul's hospital, where she is now lying. At noon yesterday she was re ported improving as rapidly as possible under the circumstances. Do you want a ba-igain in second-hand pianos? You will rind two of them at C. E.

Editors Hkrald—Was ever a city cursed by such an incompatent and ex travagant governing body as our pres ent City Council? Instead of graspiug the situation at the start, as by accepting their present responsible positions they professed their capacity to do, and keep ing the city's outgoes within its income, they went on from the very beginning in the moat reckless fashion, first bulldozing the City Assessor into the notion that as the rate was limited to $1 he must bring the assessment up to $40.Cu0,0;>0 or $50,000,000. notwithstanding the terrible shrinkage of values from the boom; notwiths.tandirg thousands of acreg of cange orchards and vineyards were d> ami were being dug up; notwithstanding rents were fall ing 75 per cent., and in sume eatee to ml; aud then, when buflfod in their wild attempts to squeeze moio money out of the bedevilled taxpayers, raising the as sessment themselves horizontally in the center of the city 10 and 20 per cent., till at last they find themselves confronted by a big deficit that may be $50,000 or it may be $200,000. But not content with bankrupting tho city, they now determined to do tht ii- best to bankiupt the citizems in detail. Utterly obvious of the terribly hard times, they are going on and open ing, grading and paving streets, and making improvements on a scale of ex travagance that looks as rhotigh they thought we were all millionaires. They seem to forget that the people of this city and county have, within a very short time, been compelled t:> pay moie than a million and a half dollars taxes ; they forget that the people of Ibis city, within the last two years, have proba bly expended more money in proportion to their numbers in opening, grading and sidewalking and paving streets, and in building sewers and bridges, etc., than any other city in America, or in the world. And so the dnnce of extravagance, financial debauchery and imbecility goes on. There can only be one end to this, unless tbe people arise in their might and call a halt. The few spasmodic at tempts of the city government at re trenchment aro but the merest child- play. The members of the Council, with small brains and large prf jisdices, ap parently lack both the capacity to in angUrate a policy of vigorous, radical re trenehnient and the backbone to cairy out such a policy. Let them stop absolutely all street opening and grading, etc., and cut down mercilessly the expunges of the Engi neer's and Street Superintendent's rie- P'.rtments, and abolish tbe $600 to $1,000 a month, which the "Strett-opening Commission" now costs the poor dis traught property owners. Let them re duce the police force one-half, or even to twenty-five men. This step would not C!»u9e the world to come to an end, al though weak-minded und weak-kneed municipal statesmen might doubtless be bamho zled into the fear that it would. Let every branch of the city govern ment, iucludicg the school department, public library, etc., get down to what sailors call "sailing under bare poles, if they do not want to encounter unpre pared very rough weather ahead. Sjmo years ago the salaries of public school teachers in this city were from 50 to 75 per cent higher than they were in Philadelphia. Tue only excuse then wa3 that it cost more to live here than it did there. Not all this is changed. The cost of living including rent is less here than there. Why should Los Angeles pay more lhan Philadelphia or other Eastern cities for the same class of services? Here, because we lack the wiso and careful forethought that quickly takes cognizance of changed conditions, we not only give gratuitous normal training to teachers, but we pay young ladies $60, $75, $80, $90 and even |95 per month of four weeks who could not earn in any other occupation here, or in teach ing In the East, over $5 to $10 per week. Without at all lessening the efficiency of cur public schools we can, if we will, as similate the wages of our teachers to something like the rates prevailing in the East. It has been estimated that one-half the tax-payers of this city have had to borrow money to pay their late city, county and Stale taxes. Many have been compelled to do this who at present are without income. One vineyard owner says he had to pay over $6UO taxes and he did not get one dollar income from his vineyard. As a matter of fact he has dug up his vines by the roots on account of the new vine disease, which seems to baffle all attempts to fiud a remedy. Most cf the vineyards of thia city have been, or are being, up rooted, leaving the owners without in come. Their obligations given for bor rowed motiey to pay taxes will become due sometime. How can they meet them? The present city government feeuis to be oblivious to al! these thing*. The banks are now supposed to be full of money from tho million or more of local taxes lately gathered in. But if, hy and by, when the tax moneys are dis horned und loans to tax payers canmot bo collected, what is going to happen? Let au incollipetent city government, which is doing its best to bankrupt the city in lump, nnd its property owners in detail, answer! B. Los Angeles, February 5. How Mr. White Huled 1h tlie Semite. Editors Herald—-The Tribune of Sun day contained an article designed to con vey the idea that I, as presiding officer of the California Senate, made a ruling simitar to the much discussed decision of Speaker Reed. A similar statement was published in the San Francisco Chronitle of Sunday, and I take this occasion to say that I never made any such ruling I as that attributed to me. Tbe facts of tho case are the following: The Republican members of the J><'is lature, with the exception of Mr. Damron and one or two others, whose views of the law agreed with that adopted by the Democrats, and subsequently de clared to be correct by the Supreme Court, attempted to prevent the election of library trustees by declining to vote but instead of remaining silent in their seats a number of them arose as their names were called and made the state ment, "Mr. President, I decline to vote " I directed tho secretary to enter in the journal tbe fact that the member said that he declined to vote. This was merely providing that the proceed inn u8 l hey occurred should be taken down. After a while it became evident to the obstructionists that they were making a mistake, and from that time no Republi can member responded to his name and in no case was any person noted as present who did not respond to his name. I took the position then that the presiding officer had no right to announce anyone present who did not respond This rule has been recognized in Con gress at all times until the incumbency of Mr. Reed. It was recognized by Mr Blame, and the Republicans under Car lisle's and |Randall's administrations had the benefit of it on many occasion? It is established parliamentary law and can only be properly abrogated by rule The presiding officer has no right to make rules. He must follow established parliamentary precedents until rules to tho contrary are enacted. Members who vote, or announce that they will not vote, make their actiou a matter of recon'. In such a case, they personally declate that they are present. No one has ever been found to question co plain a proposition. The case is en tirely different where ■ member does not answer. His presence can only bo evi denced by his answer. I might rt mark that in the case I am considering, a quorum actually voted for the candi dates. Stephen M. Whitk. February 3, 1890.
