FLEMING NOW THE TREASURER.
Judgo Shaw Settles the Much- Disputed Point. A Law Salt Which Was a *Jodel for Its Brevity. The Mndillo Finally Stralihtenetl Out. The Arguments on All Sldea. The Judgo Delivers aa Ural Opinion. The necessity tor a Bpeedy adjustment of the county treasurer muddle was j realized by all parties concerned after the institution ot suit by Mr. T. J. Fleming, appointee, to be put into pos session of the office. tt view ol the dailre to have a decis ion aa to who ie treasurer ap soon na possible, Judge Shaw agreed to a hear ing late yesterday altornoon. It, oonaiated of argumsnta by different counael, and Judge Shaw settled tbe matter without taking it under advise ment, deciding tbat Mr. Fleming is trenail ier. The facts in the owe were few and easily stated. Treasurer J. De Barth | Shorn left the etate for tho east In July to undergo treatment in Philadelphia. Ho had a 80-dav'a leave of absence, which was extended to 60 daya. This expired and fie supervisors appointed TiK'map J. Fleming treaaurer to till the TAcancy eauaed by Mr. Shorb'a abaeuce. He lited his bond, which was approved, and he qualified. Assistant Treasurer Tiernan and tbe various deputies in banks holding county money re fused to turn over the booke, records and money, on the ground that the ap pointment waa not legal, and Mr. Flem ing brought the proceedings indicated. The principal contention of Mr. Tier nan and the othera waa that the office should have been judicially declarod vacant by a court proceeding and that the law wae not eelf acting. The answer by tbe defendants waa filed before the hearing waa begun. It waa quite voluminous and was prepared by George H. Smith who repreaented the defendants. District Attorney Dil lon represented the attorney general, Messrs. Mi-Lac hi in and York. Mr. Tiernan and Jndge W. P. Gardiner, the clearing house, members of which were interested. In the answer the defendants denied . that Treasurer Shorb remained absent from the etate without tbe consent of the legislature or the board of super visors from Jnly 14th to September 13th, but during that time wbb absent with tbe consent of the supervisors, in pur suance of law enacted* by the legisla ture. They denied that on the 13th of Sep tember the office of county treasurer bo came vacant until tbe appointment of T.J.Fleming. They admitted that on that date and ever since Mr. Shorb has been absent from the state, and without leave of the supervisors and legislature. Tbe defendants further admitted that the supervisors made tbe order, bnt de nied tbat they appointed Mr. Fleming in n legal manner, or that he is daly ap pointed and qualified. Tbey admitted the absence, of Mr. Bborb, bnt eaid that he wae compelled to leave the state by reason of dan gerous and aerious illness, In order to be treated by competent physicians in Philadelphia; that at the time of hie absence he hoped to be able to return within 30 days, bnt was obliged to ob tain an extension to 60 days, and cannot yet make tbe journey home. They said that the duties of the office have been well performed by Mr. Tiernan, deputy treasurer, and the other deputies as subordinate deputies, and no loss has occurred to the county by reason of Mr. Shorb'a absence. In support of the position taken by the defendants, Mr. Smith made a brief argument to the court. He quoted tbo sections ol the political code which prescribes the times when an office be comes vacant, and that where an office be comes vacant after the absence of the officer from the state for more than 00 days without permiasion of the legisla- tare. He eaid tbat thia should not be con strued to mean absence without an un lawful intent. He held that the legisla ture did not mean to deprive an officer ot bis office for an innocent act. He did not think it was possible that the legis lature intended to deprive the state of its option to say when ench an absence created a vacancy. Such an act might Work a forfeiture bnt not a vacancy. He did not consider that tbe legislature in tended to make this provision self-acting. He referred to cases iv which it would operate as a haidahip to the officer, as in a case where an accident had hap pened alter an officer left tbe state which prevented his return within the 60 days. At the close of Mr. Smith's argument Mr. York briefly presented hia viewa in opposition. He contended that the pro ceeding waa not a criminal one bat civil, and the court whb not passing upon the wisdom of tbe legislature but upon tbe proper construction of tbe act. He urged that tbe plain intent of the act waa to cover just such a caae as this and provide for just such a contingency. He claimed that the law clearly de clared tbe office of county treasurer Vacant and that the appointment was a every respect legal. Jndge Gardiner, representing the clearing bouee, stated tbat it was the desire of all parties to set any'doubte at 3 sat, and he thought the action as to Mr. Ihorb should be dismissed, as no process could be served on him, and there Efhould be no question in caae of a judg ment. This was agreed to. 7 Judge Shaw then announced his de cision orally, He held that the act (dearly indicated what it meant, and that in this case it declared the office Vacant. The law waa framed for the public good and not for any individual, lie did not consider that any judicial proceeding was neceasary to declare the office vacant and overruled the demur- Mr to tbe complaint. Right to amend the answer being waived, he gave judg ment for plaintiff, directing that tbe deputy treasurers torn over the books, records and money, and that Treasurer Fleming be placed in possession of the office.

LOS ANGELES HERALPi WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 27, 1893. THE GREAT EASTERN SECTION. The Sea End of the Sewer to Be J?ut in Place. An Interesting- Engineering Act to Be Pei formed Today. The Die Section ot Pipe to lie Placed tn Position This Mori,lug. The Sewer Nearlug Completlon. This morning at 9 o'clock tbe great cast iron section of the outfall aewer will be pulled 600 feet into tbe Pacific ocean. If will mark tbe near approach of the completion of one of tbe greatest sewer systems in tbe world. The section of pipe ia 1200 feet long, and is bolted and flanged together. The iron section extends, or will extend, from the month of the last tunnel into tho ocean. It will reet on tbe bottom. Soundings have been taken to a dis tance of 750 feet into the ocean where the great pipe will extend. At thia dis tance the depth is 20 feet, while at 600 feet, the termination of the aewer, the depth ia 18 feet. A rather novel proceednre will be em ployed to get the pipe into the water. The aection of the aewer ie placed npon rollers, but despite thia fact and the fact that tbe alope is 60 feet or more, the weight of it ia bo great that it will require great force to extend it out to the desired distance. A tug from Rjdondo is at the ecene ready to pull the pino out into old ocean. Great wire ropes will be attached to tbe long iron pipe. Then the tug wili be gin its work, and it ia c xpected the pipe will he run into the wate- without any trouble. As tbe slope of the ocean bed from tide water mark to the end oi tbe pipe is but 600 feet and the fall 18 feet, it ie not likely that there will be any complicationa arise to binder the placing of the pipe. It is a heavy, grad ual slope. It bas, of course, been de cided that the force of tbe sewage which wi.l have a fall of 60feet, will force itself through against tbe 600 feet of water that will naturally come up in the pipe. The ''launching" of the big iron pipe will be witnessed by a large number of engineers of the city, city Engineer Dockweiler and the engineers of hia office, consisting of Messrs. Keen, Baa sell, Winston and Simpson, will leave early this morning to watch the big event. The engineer in charge of this eectioo of the aewer, Mr. August Mayer, ia a very able one, and from all information it ia expected the "launching" will be a success. Section eight of the system bas been completed and will coon be accepted by the city. Now that tbe council has notified all contractors on the sewer that no exten sion of time will be given them, it is thought tbe sewer will be completed and in operation by December Ist, if not sooner. CHINESE CRIMINALS. Their Position Under the Geary Law IleOned. After the meeting of the Prison Di rectors at San* Q lentin and tbe recom mendation that "lifer" Quong Ah Wong be released on account of' his failing health, an interesting point was raised says the San Francisco Chronicle. If tbe pardon is granted, as it probably will be, the fact will at once be brought up that this miserable, broken-down Chinese is not registered. Director Sonn tag mentioned the fact and both he and J. H. Neff stated their inability to guess what would be done with the unfortunate under the Geary act. This also suggest ed the fact that at Ban Quentin and Folsom there are in ail 175 Chinese, not one of whom baa been registered. Ac these men serve out their tevms they will be released and the question is can they be deported ? Thomas D. Rlodan, tbe attorney, is, by reason of his practice among the Chinese, particularly well Informed on the Geary act. He waa seen yesterday and, when the proposition was laid be fore him said: "The Chinese Consulate, tbe Mer chants' Club and the Six Companies would be only too glad if the law required immediate deportation of Chineee felons after they had served their terms. Un fortunately there is a clause in the law which excuses their not being registered. After reciting the fact that all Chinese must be provided with certificitea with in a year alter the passage oi the act (May 5, 1892), the section proceeds to slate that a Chinese must be deported by order of a Judge, unless he shall establish clearly to the satisfaction of said Judge that by reason of accident, eickneea or other un avoidable cause he haa been unable to procure his certificate, etc., and that he waa a reaident of the United States at the time of tbe passage of thia aot. Tbat clearly covers tbe case of Chineee felons, as they may have been residents of the United States at the time the set was passed, but being in prison unable to register." CALIFORNIA FRUIT. A Reasonable Demand at Fair Prices in the Kant. A. B. Miner, formerly president of'the San Jose Canning company and the Col ton Packing company, and who ia now handling California fruits in Chicago, ia at the Palace hotel, cays tbe San Fran cisco Call. Mr. Miner has been identi fied with horticultural interests in this Btate aa a grower, shipper and packer for 15 years, and is still the owner of a fruit ranch in the southern part of the state. "Considering the general market there ia a very good demand at fair pricea for California fruita in Chicago," said Mr. Miner laat night. "Some of laet sea sou's crop is still on hand, bnt is grad ually being worked off. I have no doubt tbat the whole of thia season's product will be disposed of, provided tbe grow ers will accept a reasonable price for their Iruit. "Can they aell at a profit? Well, yon know no one ia making any money thia year, and if a man in any businese can bold his own, clearing expenaee, he may consider himself fortunate. The fruit producers of California must recognize the situation and regulate their pricea accordingly. If they will aell according to tbe times there ia no question that the entire output of Calitornia will be sold. Every industry must expect to have an 'off' year occasionally, and hor ticulture ia no exception to the general rule. The reaaonable way to face the eituation is to take the best price offered and prepare for better times next season." SOUNDS BOOMUIKE. A Roseate Picture ot Future Financial Operations. For several months past it has been rnmored that a large amount of eastern capital would be invested in various en terprises in thia section. It has developed within the last few days that the half had not been told and the amount of money it seems al most too large to be true. There is about to be organized, under the laws of the state, an investment company composed entirely of eastern people and to have a capital of from $8,000,000 to $10,000,000. Thero are five gentlemen who are the principal organ izers and back of them are about 50 of the most prominent capitalists of the east. The stock has all been sub scribed and 50 per cent will be paid in immediately. The articles of incorpora tion are in the hands of come prominent local attorneys and will be completed in about two weekß. One of the organizers ia in the city and was asked about the intentions of hie company. "It ia formed," he said ' for the purpose of developing water for irrigation purposes, motive power and other uses, to construct reservoirs, ca nals, ditches and other means of carry ing water to the point of distribution; to build hotels and other buildings, to buy, sell and improve lands and to set aa a medium through which capital can be invested in California and more par ticularly Southern California. Its spe cific object at first iB to build a very large hotel which has been estimated to cost $1,000,000. Boyle Heights has been thoroughly investigated as a location for tiiat purpose, the weateru bills in the vicinity of Weatlake park, and particu larly the Belmont grounds have also been looked over. These large improvement and invest ments will depend largely upon the public spirit of Los Angeles, for eastern capital if now largely in the hands of men who make very few gratuitous gifts and it is well known that large hotels aa a rule have not proved profitable invest ments." HE OVERLOOKED THE COINS. An Error of Judgment Shown by a Burglar Yesterday. When the thief who robbed Jamea F. Byram & Co. of $200 worth of stamps in their collection yesterday morning reads the HisitAi.i) he will grit his teeth with rage and blush with shame for having been guilty of such a bungling job. For right in the same small show-case from which hia booty was taken were two trays of valuable coins, aggregating more than did tbe stolen stamps. Mr. Byram occupies room No. 10 in tbe Workman building. South Spring street, as an office. Yesterday morning about 7:30 o'clock when he came to open his place of business he was sur prised to find the door already un'.qcked. Mr. Byram went to the show case where hia collections were kept and dis covered that nearly all bis stamps weregone. Tho coin trays had not been touched, and a number of shells con taining atamps also remained. Nothing else in the room had been molested, a large collection of stamps displayed in the window escaping tbe burglars atten tion. It ia presumed that tho thief opened the case and just grabbed, trusting to luck to catch anything, or he would cer tainly have taken the trays of coin, as they were within an inch or two of the ataupß. Among the stolen specimens waa a valuable- collection of Hawaiian stamps. Several others were valued at $3 and $4 apiece. The affair was reported to the police. svtjt j WORLD'S FAIR COMMISSION, A Sati-factory showing Made at Yesler ' ariy's Meeting. The Loe Angeles County World's Fair commission met yesterday. Present Messrs. Forrester, Forman, Lnkens, Klokke, Scott, Vawter and Willard. Mr. Forman occupied the chair and Mr. Willard acted as secretary. It was decided to ship only two more carloads of fruit to the world's fair, the last shipment to be made by October 10th. It was also agreed to bring back all exhibits from Chicago that could not be sold to advantage, and place them in the chamber of commerce exhibit hall. The secretary reported as to the con dition of finances and presented esti mates of future expenditure!?. It was shown tbat tho county will probably come out ahead with the world's fair appropriations. The sum of $10, --000 wbb apppropriated for the exhibit, $0000 of this was eet aside as a special contingency. There now remains independent of this contingency fund, the sum of $7000. About $3000 or $4000 will cover the expenses of the exhibit during the rest of the fair, which will leave a clear sav ing for this county of $9000 or $10,000. A committee consisting of Messrs. Klokke, Scott and Vawtor was ap pointed to aecertain whether the citrus fair was to be held in Los Angeles this year. Various routine matters were acted upon. • WANTS A CORRESPONDENT.

Washington, D. C, Sept. 'Si, 1893. Tbe humiliation of Tom Hoed and bis lieutenant, Burrows, of Michigan, when they learned that the Democrats of the houeo proposed to put an effectual qniet us upon Republican filibustering against tho reporting of the Tucker bill for tbe repeal of all laws authorizing the pres ence of the United States officials at elections, was a pleasing eight to Demo cratic eyes. Because the Democrats of the bouse in the adoption of regular rules had been extremely lenient to wards the minority the Republicans as sumed that no check would be pnt ou their filibustering. They were given a free rope for awhile because there was not a quorum of Democrats present, but as soon as a quorum of Democrats was ou hand they were effectually cquelched by an order re ported from the committee on rules, and the bill was reported to the boueo. This order wae not the result of any assump tion of power by a single individual, as were the rulings of Tom Reed when he was speaker; it was authorized by a Democratic caucus, as such things al ways should be. The Republicans are to be allowed to name any reasonable length ol time during which the debate on this bill shall be carried on, but tbey are not to be allowed to filibuster against a vote upon it alter legitimate debate has been exhausted. The public tariff hearings were con cluded this week, aud the Democrats on the house ways and means committee are now at work upon the new bill. Al though the number of days were fewer than were given by some of the other committees, more time was given by* tbe committee than was ever given be fore ior public hearings. Chairman Wiison, speaking of the preparation of the new tariff bill, said: "The Demo cratic members will work together. Borne of the schedules will be prepared by all of the Democrats together, while others will be referred to'subcommittees [or preparation, previous to being revised by the full Democratic membership of the committee, it is not possible to say when tbe bill will be completed, but it will require more time than some of those who have never had a tariff' bill to prepare seem to think necessary. We might fix np a measure in very short order, but it 1b not. tbat kind oi a bill we want to pre sent to the country. Legislation affect ing bo many interests must be very care fully considered and its effect calculated before we can hope to perfect a bill whch can stand the many testa to which it will be subjected when enacted into a law. Such a measure as this cannot be BUCceßsfulty hurried. We shall, how ever, lose np time, aud hope to present it to tbe house at the earliest possible moment consistent with tbe important interest involved." Several times thia week the senate has aroused public expectation by ap pearing to be on the eve of the final contest over the Voorhees repeal bill, bnt the end is not yet. Senator Mills of Texas, made one of the strongest speeches of the week in favor of repeal; Senator Voorhees made a characteristic explanation of his position, in answer to criticisms because he had not forced a vote, calling the attention of the country to tbo fact that it 19.simply im possible to force a vote under the pres ent rules of tho senate, rules which have not been materially changed for more than 80 years, and the Republican senators, for and against the bill, had a regular monkey and par rot time among themselves. It is ex pected that the attempt to reach a vote by menus of a continuous session of the senate will be made in a few days, (the daily sittings have already been length ened) and if that fails the bill will either have to be abandoned or a com promise reached by coneeesiors on both aide be adopted. President Cleveland is still confident that the bill cttn be paseed and for that reason declines to consider anything in the shape c*f acoui protuieo. Clave Spreckels, the sugar king, was in Washington a few days ngo for the purpose of getting his fingers in tiie Hawaiian pie, hut he cut short his stay when lie learned that tbe whole matter is already settled, so far as the admin istration -is concerned, and that Presi dent Ceveland is only waiting for the senate to dispose of the bill before be sends it a special massage on Hawaiia, accompanied by Mr. Blount's reports.

ELEVATED RAILROAD. Hnmors That Such an Improvement Is on the Taplt. Rumor has it that a company of east ern capitalists are talking strongly of an elevated railroad through Aliso street to Brooklyn Heights, and it is quite prob able that they may apply Boon to the city council for a franchise. The gentle men who are looking over the grounds with a view to building this read expect eventually to extend it westwardly un til they ultimately reach the seashore, and eaßtwardly toOceidental college and Odd Fellows cemetery. The road will be an elevated one, between Brooklyn Heights and the western hills and then a surface track the rest of the way. This project, if carried out, would make the heights on both sides of the city boom, ond the beautiful lots in tbe Mount Pleasant a.id Boyle Heights and Brooklyn Heights tructs that have been almost upsa'able heretofore would bo brought into good demand. Whether this is a part of or in any manner connected with the project of a tine hotel on the heights ia not known at present. We hope to be able to find out more about this important enter prise soon so that we msy give such facts ac the public ought to know. THE PRESS CLUB. Final Arrangements Atade—Now Quar ters Keady.
