"BUT YOU FELLOWS ARE LIBERAL"
L. Harnand's Shocking Letter to the Council. Klne Sewer Inspectors Said to Be Overseeing; Five Laborers. Proceedings Yesterday of tbe Olty l,»j lalatora — ;Xhe Bloyele Ordinance not acted Upon—Petition* and Protests. Considerable Important business was transacted at the meeting of the council yesterday. Nothing was done with tbe bicycle ordinance, hence the wheelmen will not be compelled to bny lamps nor keep off the sidewalks. An almost insulting letter was sent to tbe council regarding the fences around tbe Bradbury block, and it created con siderable talk. A Orescent avenue property owner registered a kick against the heavy ex penses of the superintendent of sewer work on that street. He characterized it as an outrage. All inemberß were present .except President Teed.. Mr. Nickell occupied the chair. After tbe reading and approval of the minutes of the preceding meeting, tbe council got down to business, with the following result: CITY CLERK'S REPORT. The report of the city clerk was read showing tbat it was in order to pasa the final ordinance for the work ot improv ing Burlington avenue from First to Temple street, and such an ordinance was adopted. An ordinance ordering the work of paving Alameda Btreet, from Commer cial to Alameda street to 30 feet west of Alameda Btreet was adopted. An ordinance wae also adopted order ing the work of guttering of Center place from First street to Second etreet. The city clerk reported that J. Miran dette had paid $05 for tbe lease of reser voir No. 5 from May 1, 1803, to May 1, 1894, which had been turned into tbe treasury. The clerk also recommended that cer tain tax sales be cancelled. In the afternoon the clerk presented the following report: The notices which have been stamped upon the tax receipts for the present fitcal year, are bringing to tbe attention of our office a considerable number of tax deeds which havo been issued by the city to different tcx purchasers on account of double assessments. These deeds are liable to cauee considerable annoyance aud trouble to property own ers at a time when they least desire it, and it seems but fair that the city should make some provision for clearing these matters for tbe property owners. In tbe past it has been tbe custom of the council to refuse to return any money on account oi tax deeds, but it would appear to mo that where the tax deed baa been issued upon a double assessment and the city bas received its money twice, that it would be but justice to the property owner and fair ness to the tax purchaser if the city would make a rule, tbat where such a deed has been issued, that upon the tiling with tiie council of a proper quit claim deed to the actual owner ot the property, that tbe city would refund to tbe purchaser the actual amount of money which they have received on ac count of such sale. I have conversed with a number of purchasers who have stated tbat they would be willing to quit-claim in such cases, and I believe that muuti trouble, annoyanco and expense could be saved to tbe property owner by such a course. Referred to the city attorney. MORE DEPUTIES NEEDED. The communication from the city tax and license collector was read as fol lows : ,tt i ~..n , ~ • "I would respectfully request that you authorize me to appoint eeven depu ties for the month of October." The request was granted and the city attorney instructed to present the neces sary ordinance in accordance. BOARD OI I'OBUC WORKS. Tbe report of the board of public works, published in tbe Hiibald Satur day, was read and adopted. Regarding tbo portion of the report referring to the collection of garbage, notices were ordered printed, staling ac to what days the garbage collector will call. Tbe oity will pay for the printing. STREKT SITKRINTENDKNT'S KKI'OItT, The etreet superintendent reported (bat he had no jurisdiction over tbe work of cementing the sidewalks on East First Btreet and that some of them aio iv very bad condition, the cause of which he attributed to the fact that (he work is done* on private contract. 'lire result is that some work is done at re markably low figures, as low as eight centa, which doea not justify good work. Mr. Campbell moved that the street superintendent be instructed to notify the contractors who did the poor work on East First street to relay the side walks and that no permit be issued to these contractors until they comply with such instructions, FINANCIt COMMITTER RHPOKT. The finance committee reported as follows: In accordance with the terms and pro visions of Section 02 of Ordinance No. 680, new eerier, the city tax and license collector delivered to the city council tbe final statement of the amount of de linquent taxee and penalties by him colioeted for the fiscal year of 1892 'j;>, together with thedelinquent assessment roil, said statement, showing the totsl •mount of the delinquent roll charged to him to be $10,578 54, made up as fol lows : First half, including 10 per cent thereon .$ 3,977 58 Second hall 0,. 41 4* Five per oeut on Fecund hair HijG 4S Delinquent on personal property roll 60 00 Total $10,078 54 That be bee collected and paid into the city treasury as per treasurer's re ceipt, cash amounting to $10,284.03; that tho double and erroneous asuess menta discovered which could not be collected amount to $2.77; that the sales made to tbe city of Bos Angeles amount to $240.84, and that he has collected and paid into the city treasury the following additional sums, to-wit: For advertis ing, *074. and for ttx certificates, $405. The rtport and statement of said city tax and license collector, together with the delinquent books, were by your hon orable body referred to this committee. We have carefully compared and checked the amounts as set forth in said report "4 ' with the said assessment roll, and the auditor's books, and beg leave to report that we And the account of the city tax and license collector correct, and that the sum of money for which the said city tax and license collector asks credit has been paid into the city treasury, and baa already been credited to his account up on the auditor's books. We therefore recommend that the city anditor be directed to charge the said city tax and licence collector wtth |97-1 for advertising fees and $4!ir> for tax Certificates, and that thereafter he be instructed to credit said city tax and license collector upon his books with tbe following sumo, to-wit: Amount of doubles and erroneous assessments dis covered upon the delinquent assessment rolls, $2.77 ; account of sales to the city, $240 sii, aud on account of amount un paid on perponnl property (Grandall) $50, and lnrther recommend that his accounts for the collection of said delin quent taxes be considered as finally set tled.

Adopted. In reference to petition No. (iS7 from Richard D. List, asking that a well for irrigating purposes be erected on tbe lino of the outfall sewer where it crosses his land, we find that the city engineer has made the necessary arrangements, and we would recommend that the peti tion be filed. Adopted. In reference to petition No. <iSS, from Alexander Campbell, complaining that certain sewer connections at No. 631 Downey avenue had boon poorly done, and accepted by the plumbing in spector, we tind that since the com plaint has been made that the neces sary repairs have been done to same and that it is now satisfactory to tbe owner, and would therefore recommend that the petition be filed. Adopted. A SHOCKING LETTER. A communication from L. Ilarnsnd asked the council to remove tbe plank fence on the outside of tho sidewalk on Third street, part way between Broad way and Spring, on the north side, and also on the west side of tho Bradbury block. He characterizos the council as being too liberal. His plaintivo epistle concluded thus: "But yon fellows are liberal—too much so. It's unly on poor devils, as the crib folk who don't give you boodle, that you ate exacting." The reference was evidently intended for tbe police commission, but it fell in to the wrcng hands. The peculiarity of the communication called forth sympathy from the enUre body, but it was immediately ordered thrown into the waste basket. Chairman Nickell favored the removal of tbe fence, but said that no communi cation couched in such long lage would be entertained by the enuncil. The communication was taken as al most bordering on obscenity, and its author certainly did not receive any commendation or outward expression of friendliness. It could hardly have been taken otherwise than as an insult. City Clerk Luckenbach tore the in sinuating communication |nto shreds, after winch Mr. Mum-on moved that the street superintendent be instructed to have the property "owners remove the objectionable fence.

The matter of the resolutions upon the Obineso question was reconsidered, but after a ehort discussion they were again adopted as submitted on Satur day. The following is the report of the committee on the Chinese question: First—Whereas, in some localities law less mob 3 have entered the dwellings of the Chinese and committed depreda tions on their property and done vio lence to their persons, and with threats have driven them from their homes; therefore, Resolved, That we denounce such law lessness and cruelty as a disgrace upon our civilization and a cowardly assault t.pon these hapless foreigners, and most earnestly appeal to the civil authorities to give them protection. Second—Whereas, the purpose of the Geary law is not the deportation of the Chinese, as some seem to think, but the prohibition of their unlawful and dan gerous importation; and Whereae, the Chinese in the United States were dissuaded by corporations and attorneys from making registration according to law, being assured that it was unconstitutional and could not be enforced; and Whereas, the supreme court of the United States has recently affirmed tbat said law is constitutional; and whereas tbe Chinese in the United Statea are now asserting their deeire for an exten sion of time in order that they may register, according to law ; therefore. Resolved, that we request our presi dent aud secretary to sign by our order, and on our behalf, and the secretary properly to forward the following peti tion : To the Senate and Home of Representatives of the United Statei of America, Washington, D. C. We, the Southern California confer ence of the Methodist Episcopal church, in annual eeseion assembled at tbe city of Lob Angeles on this 23d day of Sep tember, 1893, reepectfnlly petition your honorable hodv to so amend the act passed on the sth day of May, 1892, aud known as the "Geary L»w," so as to ex tend the time for registration forat least six months from the passage of such amendment We furthermore petition this amendment because tbe immediate execution of the law wouul endanger onr interests in China. The Methodist Episcopal church has 125 missionaries iv the empire. It has churches, ehapele, dwellings, school buildings, hospitals, printing presses and other property to tbe amount of over $4J0,000. We have reason to fear that if the present provi sions of the law are insisted upon, our missionaries and property will be im periled. To this tbe Christian senti ment of the country is opposed, and we urgently pray for tho aforesaid amend ment. MISCEI I.ANKOUS BUSINESS.
