' The sewer committee reported aa fol lows: In the matter ot the communi cation Irom Hughea <% Mayer asking for au extension of time in which to com plete their contract on section 10 of tbe outfall aewer, we would recommend that tbey be granted an extension of time until tho 10th day oi December, in which to complete tbe work.

Adopted. Mr, Munson becomes eiinihiilir. ■\ I , We find upon examination that there have been aeveral connections made by property owners with the public sewers that were built by the city, without paying the regular 60 cents per front loot as required by ordinance. There lore we would recommend tbat tbe street superintendent be directed to col lect 60 cents per front foot from all prop erty owners found connected with sew ers built by tbe city who have not here tofore paid. Adopted. We find, upon examination, in the tunnel part of section 4 of the outfall sewer some work that is not up to the specifications, how much of auch work we are nnable at present to say, but we do not anticipate that there is very much of the eaid work, sa it can only exiat in the tunnel part of the work. We have directed that the superintendent of construction make a thorough examination of all the work in the tuunel, and we have di rected the contractors to tear out all de fective work found by the superintend ent oi construction and replace the same with work strictly up to the con tract and specifications. We also find that the work on all parta of the outfall sewer is progressing very satisfactorily, and we believe now that all parts of it will be completed and ready for use by the 20th day of De cember, 1893. Received and flted. Mr. Pesßel moved that ihe atreet su perintendent place a wooden culvert on Washington atreet at the intersection with Maple avenue, Carried.

Mr. Munaon moved that proceedings for aidewalking Seventh Btreet from Bixel to Pearl atreet on both aides ol the atreet be abandoned. Carried.

Mr. Strohm said there is trouble about tbe pavement on Main street from Second to Third Btreets and moved that the city engineer be instructed to bring in an ordinance of intention to resurface Main Btreet from First to Third street with bitumen. Carried. Receßß until 2 o'clock. Afternoon Session. At 2 o'clock the matter ol Figneroa street waa a special order, and on mo tion of Mr. Munaon it waa taken irom the committee ol tbe whole and consid ered in open conneil. Several gentlemen were in attendance to present different sides of tbe ques tion, and Will D. Gould made the first remarks. He said that the city attorney had delivered an opinion that Figueroa street ia a street and should be used aa such. Tbe same opinion bad been given twice before. He believed all people Mr. tone* shut* down on the tlationrry e%ntrart. were interested in keeping tbe street open. While interested as an owner of property on tbe atreet, be felt it would be proper for him to call attention to the right ol the people to have the street opened. Unlesß it is opened much property will remain without any proper opening to the heart oi the city. If it waa opened from Seventh street north there would be as good a grade as Broadway. It would be easy to connect streets with it eastward at very little expense and trouble. lie thought the proper course would be for the council to direct tbe city at torney to abate the nuisance of any ob structions in the street. If Figueroa street is a public street no one has any legal or moral right to obstruct it. Mr. Gould and bis fellow petitioners, he aaid, had asked the council to estab lish a good grade on Figueroa street north from Seventh street, grade, gravel and curb it. Mr. George B. Gebhart thought the question was a very important one, and should be investigated pro and con. The whole question ia before the council. Tbe city council had made a straight forward report. But Mr. Gebhart did not think aa he did. He took the ground tbat the land in question ia not a public Btreet, and tbat tbe evidence is conflict ing as to the claim that it was dedicated for that purpose. After 33 yeare to say, even if tbere is an irregularity, that hia and others' property shall be confiscated, would be wrong. He contended tbat contended that the opening of tbe Btreet is not a public necessity. Mr. Sheldon Burden spoke in favor of the opening of tbe Btreet. He said Mr. Gebhart and hia friends had ahied their castors into the ring first, by a petition asking the abandonment of the Btreet. That waa a tacit admission that there waa aomething to be abandoned. He argued tbat it was a necessity, and the opening should be carried out, and it would not be an injustice as contended by Mr. Gebhart. Mr. James B. Mitchell thought the street should be opened, and the un authorized obstructions removed. Tbe matter bad been long agitated, and it was a matter of fact that people who bad bought had secured it at a less rate on account of tbe chances they had to take. Mr. Walter Haase, representing some property owners, thought that south of Seventh street it did not need to be opened. Mr. E. C. BoßD'yabell thought the upper end ought to be opened, but was willing tbat the south part oi the street might be abandoned. Mr. Crow held that there is no Fig ueroa street at the points sought to be opened. Mr. Galpiu said that his abstracts all show that the, street was never dedi cated as claimed by tbe city attorney. Mr. McKoon believed that there ia really no need of opening Figueroa Btreet south of Seventh. From Seventh north it is an actual necessity for the city and people to have an opening tbere. Mr. Munson moved that the board oi public works be requested to report upon the advisability of opening Fig ueroa street from Seventh to Orange streets. Mr. Rhodea moved as a substitute that tbe city attorney prepare an ordi nance abandoning Figueroa street be tween Sixth and Pico streets. Mr. Campbell thought the whole thing should be referred to the board of public works. Mr. Munson's motion of reference was adopted. COST OF (II \IN GANG, The street superintendent reported UsLis Powder: The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.—No Ammonia; No Alum. Used in Millions of Homes— 40 Years the Standard upon the coat of the chain gang since January 1, 1893, that the total cost un til November, 1893 waa $3198.

The gang worked at West Lake park, Dow ney avenne, hill, Stevenson avenue, gravel pit on lot north of College Btreet in rear ol brick work and First street, Boyle heights. Relerred to finance committee. WISH TO ANNUL THE CONTRACT. The following report waa aent in and read: "Your supply committee beg leave to report recommending tbat the contract between the city and Messrs. Gardner & Oliver for the furnishing of stationery and stationery anppliea be annuled, the said annulment to take ef fect December 1,1893, and that the city clerk be inatrncted to prepare a new schedule ol supplies and to advertise for propoaals thereon. Thia recommendation ia made owing to the fact tbat aaid contractors are not complying with tbe terms and provisiona ot their contract." Mr. Muneon spoke in favor of the re port. Mr. Itiness aaid com plain ta had been made repeatedly. The committee know the contract ia not being carried out by Gardiner & Oliver, and it is tbe duty oi the council to annul it. Mr. Rhodea thought it the proper thing. Scarcely a bill cornea in in which a great many corrections! have not to be made. The report was adopted. Mr. Oampell moved the street super intendent notify tbe Electric Railway company to repair Pleasant avenue and Aliso street where they have been torn np. Carried. cm attorney's RECOMMENDASIONS.

In 10, 20. 40 And 80-acre farms, to suit purchasers, on credit. Terms at low rate of interest THB PROPERTY WE OFFER COMPRISES THE WELL-KNOWN CHINO RANCH. IN THE center of which ls the town of Ohiuo, on the line of the Southern Iscluc railroad, about three miles south of Pomona and Ontario. Surrounding the properly is the valley portion ol tbe Chino Ranch, comprising Iti.OOO acres lying north and east of Chino creek, subdivided into 10-acre tracts, which have a gradual decline toward the south and southwest, giving ample natural drainage for successful cultivation. In 1891 the Beet .Sugar finmpany was orianized and the relinery built and put in operation at Chino, iv a central portion with reference to tbe property. The result obtained from the operation ol the factory for tho few years past snows a remarkable degree of adaptability ol the soil to Unsuccessful cultivation of the tnigar Beet, both in amount of production and in per centage of saccliiirine matter, and also lv the efficient capaeily of the manufacturing plant. The factory handled during the present season of 1893 1000 lens of beeis per day, and have from 600 to SOD tons per day coming in continuously for the eutire campaign, coveting a period of nearly four monbt*. It ls proposed now to increase the tanaclty of the factory by the ereo tlonof anadditional hnildingaud machinery to suit the requirements of increasing produc tion. Tub returns for the present campaign have b ien a total yield of over 15,000,000 pounds of sugar, which have beeu shipped ont as crude sugar to ba refined elsewhere. Under a direct and specific contract between Mr. Gird and the Chino Valley Beet Sugar com pany, a corporation which instituted aud operates the iteet Sugar industry, they agreed to pur chase from Mr. Gird or his successors all the beets grown on the raneb for years to come, and at the preseut date, about November 1, 1893, before tbe commenccrrent ot the next season, a Used price ia established that the factory will pay for the beets at maturity next Season. This Insures the planter In the marUot for bis cop, and with the price that is tixed. before he takes any risk in the matter or maie3 the first move towards turning over the around. Possibly there is no other branch of industry where calculations for future results can ha mad' so readily or so correctly calculated upon, and returns realized in so short a time as In the cultivation oi tho Sugar Beet under such auspices. Whl<e speaking particularly in regard to tbe important industry of ben growing for tha manufacture ol sugar, estimates of general fruits should no. be lost sight of, as a great portion of the land is especially adapted to Deciduous Fruits and Deciduous Trees. Orange groves planted on portions of the Ranch are coming forward, and olives, figs, aprt cot*, prunes, pomegranates and berries. In fact, California fruits of all kinds, seem Indigenous to the soli. It is also demonstrated that corn, barley, wneat, and iv fact all the cereals and vegetables, flourish in this soil and attain a high degree of perfection The townsite of Chlao, located at a convenient point with reference to all portions of the rancb, Is a flourishing California town, with telegraph, telephone and express offices, schools and churches. Means of communication and transportation are ample. The Southern Pajiuc railroad runs its main line direct into Chino, and is lour miles distant from Pnmon ■ and Onta rio, on the main overland line, and in addition is tho proposed extension which ls now assured from Pomona, through Chino, to South Riverside ana Elsiuore. The following area few of tho advantageous features of the Chino valley: First, the Culti vation of the Sugar Beet, which insures a profit; >,5 ions is nn ..v tage crop, but 20 tons Is not unusual; wnich Is received by the factory at a fixed pri-m of if 1.150 per ton, which during this present season of 1893 has averaged tho grower from Iflij to .IiCSO per acre net, and clean above all expense of working the ground, planting and harvesting tho crop aud delivering at the factory. We invite land seekers generally who are desiring to secure profitable Invostmenta to exam' me this valuable property, which offers a field for health, profit or investment.
