Bryant Appointed I'olice Surgeon _ city Engineer's Consulting Engineer. The city council met at 10 o'clock yesterday morning with President Teed in the chair and a full board present. The minutes of the preceding meeting having been read Major E. W. Jones was heard on behalf of the CriAMBER OF COMMERCE. Major Joneß said that it had been ar ranged by Mr. C. D. Willard, secretary of the chamber, that a committee of that body Bhould meet a committee from the council iD relation to receiving the coun cil of Salt Lake City. The committee of the chamber bad not yet been able to mrjet any one from tbe council. The president replied that at 9:30, the hour eet for assembling by the joint commit tees, it rained so furiously that nobody dared venture out of doors. Be- Bides, be did not know that the train containing the Salt Lake visitors was ou time. He would inquire if anything had boen heard of the progress of the train. Major Jones answered that a dispatch had been received from San Francisco to the effect that the train had been de layed and that a further wire would be sent announcing the probable hour of arrival. It was subsequently as certained they did not leave there till Monday. The chair then replied that a further conference could bs had during the recess of the council from 12 to 2. THE STREET CAR ORDINANCES. Two ordinances were embodied in the city attorney's report and were then considered seriatium. The one com pelling the street car companies to put fenders on their cars was passed under suspension of rules, while the one pre scribing the rate of speed around the curves at Firßt and Spring streets was sent to the board of public works. THE BOARD OP HEALTH sent in a report embodying an ordinance creating the office of prison physician, leaving the name blank but providing that the incumbent should be elected by the board oi health and hold hia office at their pleasure. Mr. Innes moved to refer to the board of health. The president opposed the reference. He believed in adopting the recommend ations of the board of health, but also believed that the council had the right to elect such officer. After a short de bate the report waa referred back to the board of health. FINANCE COMMITTEE. Thia committee reported in favor of paying the following demands upon the city treasury for tho month of January: ..Pay-roll of the police department, $!>l'V>: fire department, $3507, together with nUßcellaneous bills a trifle under $1100. The report of the committee was adopted. BONDS OP NEW OFFICERS. The official bonds of Dr. L. F. Powers as health officer and James M. GlaBS as chief of police in tbe penal sums of $2500 each, came up for consideration. Mr. Teed inquired if tho clerk had examined .the assessment roll. The clerk replied that he had not. The bonds had just been put into his hands at the moment the council con vened. Mr. Teed said that be was unac quainted with tbe parties named as paretics on these bonds. He wanted the finance committee to examine them and report upon the sureties thereto. Tho bonds were then referred to the finance committee. THE PRISON PHYSICIAN SOME MORE. Mr. Strohm moved that the vote by which the ordinance relative to tbe of flce of prison physician had been re ferred be reconsidered. Carried.

The following is the report of the city attorney, which was adopted: To tho Honorable City Council: Gentleman : I have examined the petition of James Vloir in reference to the opening and widening of Maple ave nue, reciting that William Niiea haß mortgaged a tract of land to him situ ated ou the corner of Maple avenue and Washington etreet long previous to the time that Mr. Niles set back his fence aud opened Maple avenue to the public; that the mortgage haß been foreclosed upon the whole tract, and that he has purchased the same at sheriff's sale, and that the time of redemption lias not ex pired ; and complaining that the com missioners have not a.lowed him any compensation for the portion of the laud which iB covered by his mortgage, and now constitutes a portion of Maple ave nue; and asking that the report of the commissioners be corrected so as to al low him compensation for the same. I have made some examination of the facts, aud I believe that the etatement contained in his petition is correct. Of course the setting back of the fence and throwing open the property to tho public as far -s Mr. Niles is concerned, would constitute a dedication for street purposes; but I do not believe that he could so dedicate the property. In case it impaired the security of the mortgage, he would have a r ght to nave all the property sold (if necessary) to satisfy his mortgage. The time for redemption not having expired, the purchaser at the sheriff's sale has as yet no title to the land which entitled him to compensation for that portion which would bo taken for the street, and such title may never vest in him. as the property may De re deemed. I suggest that the report be referred oack to the commissioners to eliow a reasonable compensation for the land to be taken; the money for which iB to be held until it is determined who is entitled to the same. In case Mr. Niles, he would not be entitled to the money, as he has, as far as lie is con cerned, dedicated the land for street purposes. Neither would the redemp tion by a creditor, otherwise the mort gagee (before the dedication for the party Niles) be entitled to the money, as he would take the property under the condition in which it is found at the date of the sale; consequently, the only poreou who would be entitled to com pensation would be the mortgagee, or, iv this case, the petition of James Moir. The petition oi M. G. McKoon and others iv reference to the opening of Figueroa street, from Seventh to Orange street, before it was forwarded to me, was returned to the council by the board of public works with the recommenda tion that they are of the opinion the parties should take the matter into court. The investigation of this ques tion of Figueroastreetwill involvea large amount of research and investigation and some exponße in the way of an ab stract, before incurring which, in view of tbe recommendation of the board of public works, I would ask your further instruction. I have prepared and delivered to Ger son Bros the contract for keeping sprinkling hydrantß iv repair. In reference to the contract of Ramißh & Co. for the disposal of the city garb age, I tind that the plans and specifica tions provide that the council and board of health must provide the type and model of wagonß in wbich the garbage shall be removed, and that said type and model of waeone having been not yet approved, the contract cannot be drawn for that reason. I aleo find tbat the specifications on tile and adopted by the council, and which ore referred to in tbe advertisements for bide, defined the meaning of the term "garbag V and particularly specified the different kinds to ba removed. "Vegetable garbage" shall be held to mean kitchen vegetable refuse, or matter unmixed with ashes or other refuse matter which cannot be burned. Animal garbage or offal shall be held to mean refuse from board ing houses, hotels and restaurants. The terms carcasses and dead animals shall be held to mean animals dying from disease, accident, or which have been killed pursuant to the order of the county veterinary surgeon, and not to include any animal which may have been slaughtered for human food. The recommendation of the health officer accompanying these instructions is that the contract shall include the disposal of all dead animals by cremation : and in view of the fact that the specifications seem to include dead animals in the definition of garbage, and the advertise ment for proposals for removing garb age having referred to the specifications on file for particulars and description of the garbage to be removed, it seems to me that the removal of dead animals should be included in the contract. I have been informed that there ia an understanding among Borne of the bidders that the dead ani mals were not included within their es timates ; and I have been informed by other bidderß that their estimate was to include the removal of dead animal ac cording to the specifications. In view of these uncertainties I would like to havo your definite instructions as to whether the removal of dead animals shall be included within the contract or not. In the former contract with Mr. Dunnigan the city council designated the district within which the garbage Bhould be cremated, and within which the dumping grounds should be located ; but in the present specifications no such district is defined, and I desire also to know whether the council shall eelcct a territory within which thia garbage shall be cremated or not. In regard to the paving on Second Btreet, between Los Angeles and Alame da streets, by the railroad company, I find that the engineer has not estimated that the cost of the work required to be done by the railroad company will ex ceed $2 per foot; and for tbat reason the ordinance would now be prepared. I report herewith an ordinance requir ing street railway companies to provide fenders on their carß for the protection of life, and also an ordiuance regulating the rate of speed of cars around the junction of First and Spring streets. The Afternoon Session. The council reassembled at 2:10, with President Teed in tbe chair, All the members present. MAI'I.IC AVKNUK MATTERS. Mr. Horton, representing Mr. Ban diere, at the corner oi Eighth etreet and Maple avenue, owner of four lots at that point, stated that the owner of the property never knew of the proposed Btreot improvement until too late for protest uuder law. He now desired to be heard in Bandiere's behalf. By unanimous consent Hr, Horton then made a lengthy argument to the effect that an area of 13 feet would be Before breakfast f romo-Seluer 10 eta. a trial bottle. LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 31, 1803. added to his land, and he would be com pelled to move his store 13 feet at an ex pense to him. He does not consider the increased area of land is any advantage to him. Mr. Horton thought that his client was fairly entitled to some con sideration for having to move his build ings. Remonstrances were beard in behalf of other claimants (Plutarco Botillier and others) against the widening of the street, especially against the damages proposed to bo awarded by the comniia sinners, aa hiß buildings are old and will not bear removal. The amount awarded was $2000. He represents a frontage of 415 feet. Another claimant had three small buildings, the Hille of which were very much decayed. For removing these three buildings the sum of $75 has been allowed. The lowest bid he can get for removing such build ings alone is $200, and that contem plates no repairs or improvements to the property after such removal is ef fected. The case was, after much do liberation, deferred one week. The chair appointed Messrs. Campbell, Pea sel and Strohm as a special committee to investigate tbe matter. PVVINO SECOND STREET. I. H. Pope and J. £. Smith protested against the city Btreet superintendent's order of assessing the cost of work on Second street between Main and Wolf skili streets. Petitions from property holders on Baid Btreet were alao read, alleging that the work waa done in especial violation of the terms of the contract, there being less cement in such sidewalk than de manded by the specifications ; and that the loamy soil was not removed as pre scribed, but wae allowed to remain and break up the concrete foundation. They were Bigned by J. J. Melius, J. M. Da vies, S. A. Weinechenk and others. Mr. M. L. Wicks asked that a special committee be appointed to examine the work on the street. He was satisfied they would be satisfied that the work had not been properly done. Senator White, attorney for I. H. Pope, said that they wanted immediate action taken. If counsel for other par ties wanted the subject investigated, they ehould bring up their wituessea now. Mr. Wicks Baid he wanted the council to examine the case. It waa a case where men were asking the payment of money without having rendered an equivalent for it. He hoped the council would appoint a committee of its own members to investigate the matter, con jointly with the street superintendent and city engineer. A motion was made that a committee be authorized to employ au expert to examine the same. Mr. Galley Baid there was no need of an expert for Buch purposes. The city had an engineer who was supposed to be competent and able to examine such work, and he, as a member of tbe coun cil, was willing to abide by that officer's opinioD. Mr. Strohm said the work had been examined by the board of public works; that the work had been done in a work manlike manner, and was as good pave ment as any in the city. MR. davies' bombshell. Mr. Davies said that the sidewalk had been broken up by a truck belonging to the Citizens' Truck company ; that he had shown those pieces to Mr. Strohm, who said those were not fair samples of pavement; that he took a crowbar to break out another piece of the sidewalk, when Mr. Strohm forbade him from touching it, and threatened him with arrest if he did so. The resolution finally passed exclud ing the aid of experts. The committee appointed consists of Messrs. Muuson, Peasel and Rhodes. TUB CASTELAR STREET I'ItOTEST. The protest about Castelar Btreet and Bellevue avenue came up as special or der for 3:30; and on motion of Mr. Imes was postponed for four weeks. HOSTILE LEGISLATION. Mr. Innes introduced tbe following preamble and resolutions: Whereaß, Certain bills inimical to the interests of the city of Lob Angeles have been introduced in tho legislature at present convened at Sacramento, there fore be it Resolved, That a committee of three, composed of two members of this coun cil and the president thereof, be author ized to proceed to the city of Sacramento to BBeist our representatives in opposing the passage of Baid measures. Adopted. The chair appointed Messrs. Galley and Nickell. THE PUBLIC PARKS. Mr. Nickell offered the following pre amble and resolutions. Whereas, The parks of the city of Lob Angeles are at present under tbe control and management of a board of commis sioners appointed by the governor of the state; and, Whereas, It is the almost unanimous wish of tho people of the city of Los An geles that said parks be placed under the management of the mayor aud council, as provided in the charter of said city; and. Whereas, Both of the great political parties in convention assembled, pre vious to tbe last city election, declared in favor of municipal government of said parks; now, therefore, Resolved, That this council, at its reg ular Boseion of this day, does hereby in dorse the principle of municipal man agement of public parks and requests the members of the senate and assembly of tbe etate of California, representing the city of Los Angeles, to urge the pas sage of senate bill No. 93 and assembly bill No. 385, providing for said munici pal management of the public parks of this city. The clerk of thia council is hereby in structed to spread a copy of this resolu tion on the minutes oi said council and forward a copy thereof to each member of the legislature representing this county and city. Adopted. Mr. Munson moved that when the council adjourn it adjourn until Thurs day, the 2d prox., at 10 p. m. Adopted. The supply committee's report was then read, giving a typewriting machine to the street superintendent's office and approving other itemß. Approved. It contained an item of $75 for tbe services of a consulting engineer, and this occasioned a breeze. Mr. Nickell 'The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.—No Ammonia; No Alum. Used in Millions of Homes— -40 Years the Standard. thought there should be no money spent without an autbori/.ution. Mr. Dockweiler then addressed the council on the neceasity for such a con sultation. The expenditure of money on the proposed water works was an im portant matter, and the employment of a consulting engineer was to obviate ex pensive charges hereaftor. He proposed to pee tbat the work was so planned that nothing would require change. He did not want to see money expended without some benefit derived, Mr. Nickell said he did not approve of a requisition to pay out money which did not contain the name of the party to whom the money was paid. Mr. Dockweiler eaid he had hired Mr. Flynn, whom he deemed a competent man in any country in the world. The $75 waa allowed; 7 ayes, 2 noes, Mr. Nickeli and the president. ENGINEERS FOR CONSULTATION. Mr. Jones moved that the city engi neer be allowed the aervices of a con sulting engineer whenever he needed one. The matter was finally referred to the committee on fire and water. MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR. At the afternoon session Mayor Rowan sent in the following message: Mayor Hazard, on retiring from office, left unsigned several contracts for eec tione of the outfall aewer, and requeeted me to investigate carefully before sign ing. After carefully examining the line of the sewer with the city engineer and Mr. Munßon, I found tbat sections 4 and 5 were very crooked and much longer than waa necessary, and therefore aßked the city engineer to make a trial survey to ascertain what could be done in the way of straightening the line on those sections. Tlie city engineer reported that a straight line could be made, saving a distance of 1017 feet, and that the sav ing of tbis distance would enable the city to build these' two sections of the full size of 72 inches in diameter at the same cost ac it would to build on the old line where most of the eewer ia at present planned, but 40 inchea in di ameter. The advantagea to the city by the new line over the old one are: -First —The new line is perfectly slraight, and there will be lees wear ami tear and freer flow of water than in the original long and crooked line. Second—Thtj saving in distance of 1917 feet, thus not only diminishing the length of the sewer to be built, but less ening the distance to be kept in repair. Third—Tbe sewer for neaily the entire length of sections 4 and 5 will in tbe new line bo in tunnel, and will be con structed 72 iuches in diameter, which, it is estimated, will be sufficiently large for the future needs of the city, while in the plans aB originally proposed the sewer is but 40 inches in diameter in moetof the distance on those sections. It is expected that in the course of a few years the city will have increased in population so that a 40-inch outfall aewer will not be large enough, and then it will be necessary, as the original plans propose, to build another 40-incb sewer alongside of the one to be built. By building it 72 incheain diameter now the city will save tbe enormous outlay necessary to build this parallel line in the not very distant future. Fourth—About9oo feetof the line now under consideration iB to be built on made ground according to the original plans. It will bs almost impossible to build this eewer on made ground so that it will not settle and crack, thus render ing the city liable for constant and ex pensive repair and awsuits for damages, if these breaks should create a nuisance, ac they probably would. There ia no part of the proposed straight line that is on made ground. Fifth—The proposed new short sewer can be built at the increased size for the same price as the longer and smaller and crooked sewer. Sixth —Section 4 as originally planned runs for a long distance through land now covered by a large pond, where water stands until late in the summer, and if the season Bhould be a wet one, as now seems probable, this body of water might cause delay in the comple tion of the sewer. The old routs for sections 4 and 5 was perhaps the best for which a right of way could be obtained at the time, but I am reliably informed that at tbis time a right of way can be obtained without cost to the city, for the proposed new Btraight line. T. E Rowan, Mayor. I fully indorse tbe above. J. H. Dockwkii.er, City Engineer. Loa Angeles, January 30, 1893. Mr. Nickell said the contracts had all been let and he did not be.ieve tbat any change could be made for the better. The proposed new line would involve extensive tunneling wbich might work a hardship upon contractors. The pro posals for bids bad been printed, con tracts had been let and he did not wish to see thtj'l&'ing impeded. TKK MAYOR'S .speech. The mayor said he waa aa anxious 8B anyone to have the sewer pushed to a successful completion. He wanted the work done according to the now plan, if the right of way can be ob tained free of charge. The sewer com mittee had promised to call him in when they met for deliberation, but they had never done so. The old plan, he said, involved the running of a sewer through the bed of a lake, and he defied any man to dig down there in September (the driest month in all the year) with out Btriking water. Tbe new plan would leave tbis latte off to one Bide and obviate the danger of a dropping-out of the bottom of tbe sewer. He did not want to spend any of the city's money for work that had to bo done over again. He believed that he should be held ac countable for all moneys spent, and he believed that tbe council would also be held accountable. Public servants can not shirk responsibility, nor can they escape history. He wanted amicable relatione with the council, and in highly important matters those relations could only be maintained by consultation be tween the executive and the legislative branches of the city government. The matter was referred to the sewer committee. from'the zanjero. A communication waa received from Refugio liilderrain, city water inspector, asking for four deputies. There waß a good deal of talk over the matter, and a Highest of all in Leavening Power.— U. S. Gov't Report PURE motion waa made to refer to tbe finance committee. Lost by a tie vote. Mr. Strohm moved to defer to next Thnrtday morning. Lost; ayes 5, noes 4. The motion to grant the request of the zanjero was lost; ayes 5, noes 4. TUE POLICE SURGEON. The ordinance creating the offico of police surgeon was then brought up and read. On motion of Mr.'iiatley the or dinance was placed upon its passage, with a result of i) ayes, 0 noes. The council then elected Dr. E A. Bryant as such surgeon, to serve from February Ist, with a salary of $75 per month. OFFICIAL liONDS. The bond of the new health officer, Dr. L. M. Bowers, was then read and approved. The sureties are Messrs. Crimiuger, Miller and Eeichert. Adjourned at 4:45. ABOUT THE WEATHER. WEATHER BUREAU FORECASTER HAKES A BAD GUESS. A Very Heavy Rainfall in Twenty-four Hours— A Wall Caves lv—Elec tric Cars Abandoned for tbe Night. • Athe weather bureau forecaster pre dicts rain for today, it is probable, judging by the bureau's inaccuracy for the past two days, that as the Herald readers sip their coffee this rooming they will look out of their windows at a clear day. Yesterday morning the pre diction waß "fair," aud day before yes terday the weather bureau gravely made the same absurd statement. It is true it only rained elightly on Sunday, but it was not a fair day by any means, but yesterday was flat contradiction to any . assumption that the forecaster knew what he waß doing. The storm was very steady and in tense all day. The rainfall was quite heavy, being 2.20 inches for the 24 hours ending at 5 o'clock. The storm has been general, rainfall being reported all aloDg the coast. At San Diego the fall yesterday waa .3S of an inch. The following figures are the totals for the ptesent storm : Fresno, .14; lveler, 46; San Francisco. .32: Sacramento, .50; Red Bluff, .04; Eureka. .10; Eoseburg, 12; anow was falling at Roseburg; Port land, .30., At Los Angelea the rainfall up to 5 o'oclock yesterday evening for the aea- Bon was 13.42 inches. At the time of observation the weather was generally cloudy with rain falling. About 8 o'clock last evening tbe re taining wall of the Mott block caved in, and let a flood of water in the base ment of about the quantity and swift ness of a mill-race. The side wall on the Alameda side, north of Commercial street, eunk out of Bignt and with it the wall fell in. A man came rushing along with hia head bowed under his umbrella and fell in the chasm of roaring water, which waß now several feet deep. He floundered around until Officer Marden dived down and brought him to the sur face. The street car service was consider ably impeded. Last evening 11 of the electric care were abandoned for the night on Flower street between Tenth and Eleventh streets. At 9 o'clock Grand avenue and Figueroa atreet were raging torrents, carriages croEsing there with consider able difficulty. llacklen's Arnica Salve.

White banquet met in the parlors of tiie Nadeau hotel yesterday afternoon at .1 :"0 o'clock. Mr. Last ore sided. It was decided to postpone the date of tho banquet one week, thus changing it from Thursday, February 2, to Thursday, February '.). The reasons for the postponement were, first, on ac count, of the weather, and second, owing to the fact that as the Becond day of the mouth is an important one to merchants, particularly in their col lections, a large number could not have attended the banquet had it been held on that date. If any persons having purchased tickets for the original date, February 2, cannot attend on February 9, their money will be refunded to them -Mr. List sta'ed that ex Senator Ed munds and John P.
