THE BICYCLE RACES YESTERDAY.
Somo Interesting Events Which
Were Commenced.
Poor Judgment Shown by Ono of
the Track Officials.
Mr. Smith's Extraordinary Itullug
Against the Press—The Winners
In Yesterday's Contests,
■rents for Tomorrow.
The first annual meet of the Southern
C.^-r ornia division of the leage of Amer
ican wheelmen, was opened at Athletic
park yesterday afternoon. The second
and final day of tbe track events will be
held tomorrow at the same place and on
Tuesday there will be a team race at
Agricultural park between the Los An
geles, East Side and Riverside clubs for
a trophy cup presented by the East Side
bicycling club.
W. A. Burke.
There were 18 events given yesterday
including a number of beats for quali
fying in the finals of tomorrow. There
was a small and unenthuaiaetic atten
dance which waa probably due to the
fact tbat the principal finala were not to
be run until tomorrow.
The races were all ridden in very good
time. During the first part ol the aft
ernoon a strong wind was blowing from
tbe eonth and againat the ridera in the
weat atretch by the bleachers. The wind
however died down after the opening
eventa, and the men were able to make
more headway spurting.
The track wae hard and in very good
condition, with tbe possible fault of
being too gritty.
One ol the features of the day waa the
riding of the Riverside men in orange
and black enite. Out ol a total ol 16
eventa, eight firsts fell to the men from
tbe orange center.
The great D. D. Burke was not on
hand to ride, much to the disappoint
ment of all preaent.
E. Gatentburg.
Tbe Ilekai.ii is unable to present any
particnlare of the different races ior the
Simple reason that their official repre
sentative, together with another re
potter, were obliged to leave the track
end were told they wenld have to occupy
• box in the grand stand. This treat
ment waß the entire work of H. C. F.
Smith, the clerk of the course. The
newspaper men were by tbe judges stand
to the right of the tape. Mr. Smith ap
proached the representative of a morn
ing paper and told him to leave the
, track. The reporter told who he was to
which Mr. Smith replied that it made
bo difference as there had been a place
on the grand stand reserved for the press
•nd that they wonld have to go there,
Both reporters protested against such
action as it wonld interfere with report
ing the meet. Mr. Smith, however, re
plied that they wonld have to leave the
track saying that they mixed affairs up
and interfered with the officers. Mr.
Hickok, one of the timers, told Mr.
P. Kitchen.
Smith that the reporters were not in the
way and requeated tbat they be allowed
to remain. But Mr. Smith waa bound
to bave it hia own way and the newa
paper reporters were forced to leave their
placea by the judge'a etand and so clear
•croas the field to'the grand stand, n
distance of nearly 100 yarde, where tbey
were supposed to catch the time for the
different quarters and the finishing time
9! the riders. The only means by which
they were able to get any time waa from
a score board and only the time of the
firat man were posted.
Mr, Smith seemed cnriously ignorant
of the fact that the reporters are given
IB 1 liberty with the officers of the events
and that the euccess of such events is
not entirely independent ol the press.

THOSE SCHOOL CURTAINS
THE GRAND JURY 13 INVESTIGAT-
ING THEIR COST.
More Details Abont the Alleged Illegal
Transaction—The Affair Having
A Demoralizing Effect Upon
tbe Schools.
The methods ol the city board of edu"
cation will probably soon be made pub
lic in detail, as the grand jury haa taken
a hand in the investigation.
Yesterday City Auditor Teale and Mr.
Hilee, the curtain dealer, were np be
fore that honorable body and presuma
bly were "pumped" aa to what they
know in connection with the attempt to
cheat tbe city out of the beggarly turn
oi $49.
While there are many rumors regard
ing the acts oi some members of the
board, it is not juat to give them fur
ther publicity-unless I mare fnlly .-sub
stantiated oy an official investigation. .
As to the result of the grand jury*
investigation, it is thought the whole
matter will likely tjfr'ilFapperi il noil
legitimate transaction ia brought up in
connection with the purchase ol the
window shades. Of course one thing
must be done —th* entting down of the
bill to a reasonable jpmofnt. It ia not
likely that the city wity pay a bill'ol
$112 when it should have been bnt $60.
To further prove that Messrs. Gardner
A Oliver called upon Hiles & Sogno and
made the proposition to charge $112 for
the $G5 window shades and get a rebate
of $49, Mr. Hilea found a card in hia
pocket yesterday bearing tbe addrees of
the gentlemen and also the location*
ol tbe school where tbe shades were to
be placed, tbe latter being in Mr. Gard
ner's own handwriting. Mr. Hiles aaid
Mr. Gardner handed bim the card on
the occasion oi hia i Gardner's) first visit
to Mr. Hiles' atore, which waa on Sep
tember sth. Alter that both Mr. Oliver
and Mr. Gardner called in connection
with the proposed purchase.
There ia one thing certain—the mud
dle in which the board ia now flounder
ing ia having a deteriorating effect npon
the entire school system oi the city, and
it is hoped the whole matter will be. in
vestigated and finally settled.
THE OUTFAL SEWER.
Mew Blethoda Must Be Used to Pat the
Pipe In Position.
Contrary to expectations the laying of
the big castiron sewer pipe into the
ocean haa proved a hard proceeding.
Work was yeßterday stopped, and a
different method of pushing the pipe
into the sea will now be adopted.
The manner in which the first 500
feet of pipe was placed, while novel, was
thought to be just tbe thing. A tng
waß anchored out beyond the breakers
and the pipe pulled into place by means
of steel cables. But yesterday a hitch
occurred and the process wae abandoned.
It ia now intended to drive piles along
the line of the pipe to ita termination, a
diatance of GOO feet. The pipe will thus
be carried out and lowered to its place
on the bottom.
Section eight of the ontfall sewer
which ia 4447 feet long and consista ot
brick, ia ready to be accepted by tbe
superintendent ol construction. On
this section, being mostly tunnel work,
over 1535 barrels of cement were ueed.
Thia portion of tbe sewer ia 45 inches
in diameter.
DRINK NO OTHER
Bnt the Staler & Zobsllen Bear.
That is juat about what the public are
doing, for once they uae the above cele
brated beverage tbey will use no other
kind. Maier & Zobelein, the genial
prop lie tors of the Philadelphia brewery
of this city, are making aa fine beer as
any manufactured in the United States,
and as a result tbe sales are rapidly in
creasing in every direction. It ia recom
mended by physicians as being health
ful, nutritious and bracing. The Phila
delphia brewery ia a pride to Loa Ange
les and the popular proprietors deserve
credit lor their energy and enterprise
and fully deserve the high recogni
tion tbey are receiving from the public
in consuming such large quantities of
their favorite beer.

LOS ANGELES HERALDi SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 1, 1893.
THE SPIRIT OF FRATERNITY.
it Prevailed in the M. E.Church
Sonth Conference.
Dr. Campbell aud Bishop Fifzcrrvald
Kxelange Greetings.
The Routine iiuslnesa Which Was Tran
sacted Vtsterday—A Visit From
Fraternal Delegates—Tho
Appointment* Today.
Fourth day of tbe Loa Angeles annual
conference, Methodist Episcopal Church
South was the occasion of much inter
est.
Tbe conference met pnrsuant to ad
journment, with Bishop Fitzgerald in
the chair.
Minute question 20, "Are all tbe min
isters blameless in their live and official
administration?" was resumed.
A. Adams and K.,C. Knott, traveling
elders, made their report and passed in
examination of charat^er.
The names of E.u. Knott and 0. D.
Crotbers were referred to tbo committee
on conference relations for supernumer
ary relations, and thai ol A. Adams for
the superannuate relation.
J. F. G. Finley wasi'fcianted the floor
on a question of privilege. Hie ques
tion related to the vote to which It. A.
Rowland was elected ta deacon's orders.
Dr. J. W. Campbell, fraternal dele
gate to this body .'win. .the Methodist
Episcopal church, was Introduced, and
presented his greeting?. ; De. Campbell
spoke ot his gratitude btecmee ol the
success of the Methodist Episcopal
Church South. He tungftt his three
Children to esteem his .sinter church.
He believed that there should be uni
fication of action against sin and for
great moral reform. He does not be
lieve in onr wasting our rueaits by one
church trying to labor where toe ottur
is already established and really occupies
the territory. He closed with .an elo
quent and pathetic wish for fraternity
and unity of effort in the good^auee.
Bishop Fitzgerald responded .in a talk
whose humor, pathos and wisdom can
hardly be transmitted to writing. He
loves the great sister church and has
nothing In his heart bnt most fraternal
feelings. He believes in love in har
mony, north and south. No geograph
ical lines are to separate us in heart.
There are none in the south who want
to fight except those wbo did not fight
when they had a chance—men "invis
ible in war, invincible in peace."
The south, like the boy who had eaten
too many buckwheat cakes, "don't want
what they have had." Aa to the union
erf the two churches, he thinks that
some day we shall at least have three
great conference divisions in the United
States—one for New England, one for
the toutb, one for tbe west. Some time
the inn, tram "where he brightens the
pines ef Maine until he dips his disk in
the watere of the great gnlf, will shine
npon a people united in harmonious
effort and fraternal love."
At tbe close of tbe bisbop'e response
the following reeolntions wore read and
adopted with a rising vote:
Kesolred, That it is with nnfeigned
pleasure that we have the genuine words
of fraternity from the lips of Dr. J. W.
Campbell, the fraternal delegate to this

SEVERAL CASES DECIDED
A RAILROAD CASE RKVKRSED BY
THK SUPREME COURT.
Tbree Convlcis Fall to Qet S»« Trials
From Ihe Suprt-mi* Court-Grow
ing Crups Legally Defined by
Judge bhaw.
The supreme court has decided tbe
case of Smith, appellant, vs. Los Angeles
and Pacific railroad company, respond
ent, reversing the order of the superior
court in the case. The opinion was re
ceived for filing yeeterday by Mr. Ses
non, deputy clerk.
A receiver waa appointed in the caße
of the California bank vs. Loa Angeles
and Pacific Railroad company, Septem
ber 13, 1889. On October 26, 1891, tbe
plaintiff in the present case tiled a peti
tion of intervention in tbat action,
petting forth that he had obtained a
judgment against the railroad for
$4403 30 October 2, 1891, and tbat no
part of it had been paid. He prayed
that his claim might be allowed against
the railroad and that certain land be
longing to it be sold and the proceeda
applied to the par merit of its debtß.
On July 11, 1892, he applied to the
court for an order discharging tho re
ceiver, on the ground that the order
appointing him was void. The appli
cation was denied, and he applied to
the supreme court for a review of the
proceedings. A hearing waa had and
judgment waa entered denying the peti
tion. Subsequently the plaintiff ap
plied in this action to tbe superior court
for an order directing the sheriff to levy
upon sufficient property in the hands of
the receiver to satisfy his judgment.
The motion was denied and the appeal
was taken trom this order. Tbe su
preme court in discussing the case aays
tbat inasmuch as it appears tbat tho
plaintiff in tbe action in which a receiv
er watt appointed cannot avail itself of
tbe services of the receiver, t» hold that
the plaintiff .in tbe case is not entitled
to execution would be to decide that he
haa no remedy whatever for the enforce
ment of hia'judgment, and the Califor
nia bank, .after practically abaudoning
its action, ought not to be permitted to
put the creditors in such a position that
they can obtain no relief, either through
the receiver or by tbe ordinary processes
of law. Tne order is therefore reversed.
TWO JUDGMENTS AFFrBMBD.
The supreme court alio, in tbe arson
case oi R. Daniels, affirms the judgment
oi tbe euperior court denying a new
trial. Tbe defendant was convicted of
arson in the second degree. The only
grounds urged ior a reversal were that
tbe court erred in giving the jury por
tions of two instructions aekea by the
people, and in ita rulinga upon the ad
miaaibility of certain evidence. Tho
court laila to find any material errors.
In the case ol Louis Etting and Burt
Hadley, an appeal was taken from the
judgment and order denyiog a new trial,
l'hey were convicted of robbing an old
Frenchman named Boiron. Errors were
charged in instructions given to the
jury and errors of law. The court holds
there were no material errora and
affirms the judgment.
GItOWINO CKOI'B DEFINKO.
Judge Shaw yesterday overruled a
demurrer to the complaint in the caaeol
Magulre va. Gibson. The question
argued in trhe case was whether or not
the term "growing crops," in section
2965 ol the civil code, prescribing what
claeßeß oi personal property may be
mortgaged, includes young orange trees
growing in a nursery and there kept for
sale for transplanting. Judge Shaw in
a short opinion says that the question
haa never been decided by the aupreme
court, and that no other state has a
eimilar statute ccucerning chattel mort
gagee. He rules that the liberal con
struction of the words ia more in ac
cordance with common sense, and
thereloro overrules the deinurror.
A DBMUBBEB OVBKRUJ.BD.
Judge Shaw also overruled'a demurrer
te the complaint in the case of J. C
Wallace vs. the Loa Angeles National
bank. The complaint showed that the
plaintiff wai the owner ol the lands de
scribed and entitled to their possession ;
that the defendants bave eince July l\
1892, against the will ol the plaintiff]
kept and maintained on the premises a
lot of growing nursery Btock and ex
cluded the plaintiff from the land, and
forcibly withheld possession, and tbat
he has been damaged $30,000, The
court thinks these facts sufficient to en
title the plaintiff to recover, and there
fore overrules the demurrer.
The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.—No Ammonia; No Alum.
Used in Millions of Homes— 40 Years the Standard.
MAY BUY THE WATER WORKS.
The City Taking: Active Steps
in That Direction.
Something Will Be Bone Very Soon
to Settle the Matter.
A Payment on the City Water Company'a
Plant Not Yet Met—The Parchaaera,
Moaara. Plorce and Shaffer
In the City.
It is not at ail unlikely that before
many menths Los Angeles will own its
own waterworks. Active steps are now
being taken in that direction.
Several weeks ago the city council
passed a resolution authorizing the
water committee te begin negotiations
with the owners of the City Water com
pany's plant with a view to purchas
ing it.
Initiative steps were at once taken,
with the result that R li I. Pierce of
Indianapolis and C. C. Shaffer of Chi
cago, who have an option of purchase
on the City Water company's plant,
cams to this city, arriving Tuesday.
The capitalistic gentlemen were bore
last spring, when it was said they pur
chased the plant, pavipg $00,000 down
and agreeing to pay $200,0C0 this month.
The price agreed upon was $2,400,000.
The eommitteeappointed by tbe coun
cil, Messrs. Nickel), fnties and Munßon,
called upon Mofsrs. Pierce and Shaffer
Friday, when a conference was arranged
for yeßterday morning at 10 o'clock.
The councilmen were on hand, but the
other gentlemen had evidently not
arrived at a definite conclusion, bb they
informed tbe water committee that M-jy
would Bee them next week regr.ding
the proposed purchase.
The truth of the matter is, the if
meat of the $200,000 was due tho City
Water company ießterday, but owing to
the depressed financial condition it
could not be raised, or, at any rate, was
not paid over.
Mr. S. H. Mott of the City Water
company was asked concerning the
situation yeßterday, but he had nothing
to give out beyond the fact that Messrp.
Pierce and Shaffer ere here for the pur
pose of making some final negetiation.
Mr. Pierce was interviewed lait even
ing, but said that nothing would be
done until the middle of the week, when
a conference with the water committee
will be held and the matter thoroughly
discussed. lie did, however, ex
press himself that if he and Mr. Shaffer
should cell the plant, it would be done
very reluctantly. The property, he
said, in such a growing city, is im
mensely valuable. He had understood
that there is a populareentiment for the
city to own its waterworks. If tbis be
so, he raid, and the city will pay a rea
sonable puce for the plant there would
be no objection to Belling,
In tbe event of the purchase, the
water committee will make the recom
mendation to the council, which if
adopted, will be followed by tbe calling
of an election to vote bonds, if the
proposition is then approved by the
people, Los Angeles wilt own one of the
best water works in the etnte.
