Routine HitH.rta Yesterday was a (loral day with the oity council. Oonuoiluian Muuson'o desk was bedecked with a huge bouquet of piuka nnd maiden hair feme en twined, tho gift of Mra. D. (i. Peck ; while on tUd desk pf the president rested a beautiful fiiral piece, unique iv its design, and though fuuureal in iln aspect, in its import slightly humorous •ad somewhat ridiculous. On a center of immortelles was wrought iv red flowers the legend: "Figueroa Street at Rest." A border of ivy encircled the whole, and corner pieces were wrought of yellow immor telles. Below this floral tribute was ap pended a copy of a beautiful poem, tied with a bright red ribbon. This puem ells tbe story—all there ia to toll. It •11a it this way : OWED TO TIIK VALIANT I OI'NCI I.M UN. Now Hal ye, valiant couucuuion, Unto our tale ol wo;—all: About a ghost, a gru-<ome ghost, That ineu call riguero -a. For many weary moons, full oft This ghost did mo. about! And from our back raids on the hill Mo man could drive it out. It made the sunshine blaclt to be, It made the darkuuss black , Tha ro>ea and the lilies drooped Where'er It made n track. Weablveiod and we shook full sore; We erUd aloud for fear. Ye men of mlgtit Una ghost did slay Wneu you our cries d.d hear. Now list ye, merry geullemen, Unto our title of glee, For that the ghost ye low have layed That haunted our cosutree. We give ye thanks; we deem It Jual That ye sliuuid ptalscd be, For ye have alatu a gruesome gho.t With might and hravery. —From the had lea uf Loomis street. Bat the bright array of flowers end the perfume they spilled out on tho air of tbe council chamber seemed not to subdue tbe spirits of the councilmen. Immediately following the roll call came the . -'ling of tho mayor's veto of the ordinance calling for a bond election on January IJth. Councilman Strohm moved that tbe vote by which the ordinance was passed be reconsidered. The motion oarried. Tbe motion of Councilman hhodee to lay tbe matter over until the afternoon session gave an opportunity for debate. Counoilman Munson waa the brat to avail himself ol the opportunity. Hie manner waa not violent, but it was forcible and in ationg language be spoke of tbe attack of the superintendent of schools upon the city council. "Every time the superintendent of schools draws his salary he ia violating a city ordinance," aaid Mr. Munson. "He has been in the city about four months and I do not see how he can judge better ol the need for school facili ties in this city than tbe council can." Mr. Muneon was followed by Mr. Rhodes who set forth as a lact that the council had given, in their estimate, all tbat bad been asked for by even Mr. Search himself iv the way of school facilities, except the industrial high school. In reference to the Third street tunnel matter Mr. Rhodes coneidered, and tbe council had also considered, he aaid, tbat tbe formation of an aeßeaement dis trict any smaller than the entire city would be an injustice. He likened the digging of the tunnel to tbe building ol the public bridges. "As an old newapapsr man, 1 know the power of the press," aaid Mr. Teed. "The newspapers have printed articles against tbeae bonds, and 1 believe now that tbe proposition is dead. Tbe mayor and tbe newspapers are wrong. I would never vote lor an induetrial high school if I eat in the council lor a hundred yeara. I never was in favor of the Third street tunnel; the mayor himself asked for tbe park appropriation aa a member of the park commieaion. "The advocate lor an increaae in the eohool apportionment seems to go in on the plan of a well-known poli tician of thia oity, ol building him self up by tearing other things down; but he cannot force an Industrial high school down this council in any event." There was a deep oileuce lor fully a minute after Mr. Teed concluded, and tben Mr. Nickell spoke. "We should not be dictated to by a man who does not own a loot of prop erty in this city," be said. "The school board enould have come to us instead of this man going to the mayor. 1, for one, do not propose to atand here ond let any man who haan't beou in thia city but three or four monttiD, and who doesn't own a dollar's worth of property in the city, dictate to me," Mr, Munson thon arose to just remark that when the action of the council on the new school bonnes waa taken, Mr. Search bad been in tbe city about three daye, and after that the smoke of battle was allowed to clear away, tbo enemy being nowhere in eight. Later in the day an amended ordin ance was brought in, but after aome die cuaaion and figuring, tbe whole matter was laid over guntil Wedneailay after noon. In tbe meantime n special com mittee of tbe council will moet the building committee of tho board of edu - cation and the school superintendent thia afternoon at 1:80 o'clock, and n general underatar.ding may be brought about at that time. The oity auditor's report on the an nual reports of the witter overecvr Mild city justices was received nnd hied. By an oidinance the names of Hansen Street was changed to F.aetlake avonuo, and Patrick etreet lo Alturn street. D. F. Donegan wna granted HO days ex tension of time to complete bia contract on Belmont avenue. The petition of J. H. Jacobs for a deed to certain property claimed by the city, waa referred to the city attorney. The demands recommended by the supply committee were passed, with the exception of demanda for extra street sprinkling. The report of the bonrd of public works aa pubhshod was edoptod. Anordiuanco for grading up Crocker and Alameda otroetß waa naaaed, and also one for grading Lake Shore avenue between Palo Alto aud Temple streets. Just here Mr. Teed asked permission to say something about sewers. In tbe sewer district south of Washington street and west of Figueroa, he said, the contractor, Mr. Hughes, ie having a cinch iv the matter ol connections to private houses. He has not only a lead pipo cinch, but a sewer pipe cinch ao well, it seems. While the sewer ie null uncompleted he allows no other plumber to make a connection with it, out allows the property owners to make connection aud run olfsewage, provided tliey pay him a good round price for putting in the connections. The street superintendent and the building super' inteiident were both called in in the matter and the oity attorney also put to work on it, with tbe result that It was found tbat ninth a thing was in direct opposition to a alate law, but that it was being done, ami none of the city officers: seem to have the power to stop it. The city attorney drew up an ordinance making it v misdemeanor for anyone to make connection with a public sewer until after its acceptance, but the ordi nance failed of passage, and the matter stands just as it did before, with the ex ceptiun that Mr. Teed is wrought up over it, and gives It out that he will have another "go" at the proposition later on. An ordinance was passed enlarging the distiict where fowls must not be al lowed to run at large. The district now includes the block bounded on the west by Bisol street, north by Ingraham atreet, south to Seventh atreet. A representative of the Council of La bor and the Carpenters, union came be fore the couucil with the statement that the contractor on street work on Fourth and Crocker nnd Wulfokil! avenue waa working his men nine hours a day, in violation of his contract. On motion the street superintendent waa notified to inform the contractor tbat his contract would be declared void if he failed to live np to it. Mr. Teed brought up tbo matter of restraining Btreet contractors on aewer work from hauling away the heat gravel from the excavations and filling up the atreets again with inferior material, bat nothing waa done in the matter. Bide for improving Tenth etreet were referred to the board of public works. The zanja committee reoommended the preparation of plans by the city en gineer for a cement pipe 675 feet in length and 30 inches In diameter, and a wooden flume 148 feet in length, on the eonth tide of and acroas Palmetto etreet, lo replace worn oat pipe and ilimiei. The report waa adopted. The city attorney waa instructed to bring a suit against D. W. Field in order to clear the title to a piece of land owned by W. H. Hmylie, and which was enld at tax sale through a mistake of D. W. Field when city assessor and tex col lector. An ordinance calling for an election on the question of funding certain out standing indebtedneta, amounting to $31)0,000, waa referred to tbe finance committee. An ordinance riling the hours when council shall meet and that tbe city of tit-en shall be opened at 9 o'clock was passed. An ordlnanee for the surveying of an alley between Ingraham and Seventh atreets was paaeed. Alao ordinances for grading, curbing and aidewalking Con stance street from Pico to Sixteenth, surveying Burliugton avenue from Tenth to a print opposite the southwest oorner of lot 5, block X, of Bonnie Brae traot. The matter of opening an alley in block H, of Moore & Keleher'i subdi vision on Boyle Heights, waa referred to the board of public woras. Tbe matter of improving Doaillard avenue went the came way. A. J. Bradish tendered his resignation as a police commissioner aud it was ac cepted. No reason for the action was presented or asked for, and no one was appointed to fill the vacancy, aa it wae atated only about a week remained in which a com missioner appointed by thia council could aot in that capacity. A communication from tbe Single Tax club was read and referred. HIS ANNUAL REPORT. What tha City attorney Has Don* la a Year.

IT HAS A HISTORY. THE OLD COURT HOUSE BEING RAPIDLY TORN DOWN. Many a Tender Memory Ollflga to the Old Building—r x-Mayor Workman Recalls Many a Striking In atenoo In It's History. [Ex-Mayor W. H. Workman in the lsßt iaaue of the Sunday World haa tbe following interesting reminiscence.] I experienced a deep feeling of regret, tbe other day, when going through the ruins of the old court house, now being demolished. I saw it rise and am now at its death. The old historic landmark haa served many purpoaea, it haa shel tered all aorta ol people and it waa given to devotiona both saintly and distinctly otherwise. It ia rather a painful feeling to those who looked on this aa a build ing to be prond 01, being the beat and moat pretentioua in Southern California, to ace it being battered to piecea, and there ia a grim satiafaction iv learning tbat the work of demolition ia difficult and alow because tbe builder put hon est labor and honest material into his work. Huge timbers a foot square were used in a profligate way, from the mod ern standpoint, but it waa put up to be earthquake proof and its akeleton sbowa tbat it was braced end girded in a way to resist almost any shock. It was built in 1859 by Jobn Temple for a mar ket house, and opened witb a big cele bration and charity ball. The charm ing Spaniah cuatoma of tboae days, familiar, perhapa, only to those wbo lived through them, the brilliant and picturesque dressing, and tbe impas sioned yielding to La Jets made the bail a sight long to be remembered. The market house waa not a aucceas. After a two years' trial it waa converted into a place of amusement, and the denizens of the embryo matropolia were regaled witb their first opera on local boards, a really good grand opera com pany presenting favorite operas in Span ish, which everybody at tbat time un derstood, more or leaa, in a moat satis factory style. But it was not long when the frivolous tendencies ol the building were checked and it was turned into a meeting house, religions services being regularly held there. Alter aome deaultory occupancy, the county finally took it and uosd it aa a court houae until a lew years ago, when the county possessions were re moved to the new county building. The old building even figured in the civil war. In 1801, when the call to arms went forth on both sides, there were more southern sympathizers in the state than were thorn of outspoken ad herents to tbe old order of things. At that time, Captain Winfield Scott Han cock, who afterwards rose to tbe rank of major-general in the regular army, was the United States quartermaster here, aud had charge of a large amount of public atores and anna. Becoming alarmed at the hundreds o! southern sympathizers who wero passing through the oity eastward bound, and there be ing no regular soldiers available, he called upon the only military organiza tion of tbe city to protect the public property. This waa - the Loa Angeles guards, about 60 strong, under the com mand ol Captain H. N. Alexander. We were all young and active then, nnd we had our first taste of actual military life in doing guard duty over the public stores day aud night, until the danger bad passed. I can recall very clearly how Captain Hancook, on the Fourth ol July, 1861, when the newa that Fort Sumpter had been fired on, reached here, came to the members ol the guards and aaid, "Now, boys, let's celebrate the Fourth. Let's hoist the old ,'sg on the court house." No soonor said than done. We marched down Main otreet to the court house etepa, and after a flag had been raised to the mast head, Captain Han cock delivered a most beautiful and stirring address, urging lealty to the old banner. It waa intense in its loyalty, and very gracefully complimented those of us, who, though southern born, stood by the fedora! government. In tbe eveving Captain aud Mrs. Hancock entertained the guards at a banquet, at which loyal toasts were drank, and which was followed by danc ing. Of thia old company only a few remain. I can only recall, aa in tbe land of the living, Captain Alexander, Sam Prager, Wm. M. BuU'nm and Oscar Macy. With the tearing dowu of the weather-beaten old court honee is re moved one of the most striking laud marks of our city, and whatever may take its place and cover its site, there will be a tender spnt in the old-timer's breast for tbe old edifice, which meant so much to him in the early days.

Spring A NATIONAL BANK NONSUITED. J. Wiley Wallace Wins a Stub bornly Contested Case. Judge Smith Doles Out Justice-to Malefactors. The Patterson Mnrder Oaae Oonanma. Much Tlmi- N.iT Holt, riled. Supervisor. Tranafer Road Fnnds. Yesterday was law and motion day in the civil departments of the superior courts. The only enit in which a concluaion waa reached was the case of the Loa Angelea National bank va. J. Wiley Wallace et al., wbioh has conßumed three days before Judge Clark and a jury in department two. At tbe conclusion of the taking of testimony a nonsuit wbb ordered en tered by Judge Clark. Tbe caae iv queation was a suit instituted by the Los Angeles National bank, by wbicb the corporation sought to recover $5000 and interest from September 8, 1801, from J. Wiley Wallace, defendant. The facts developed tbat on tho date named the defendant drew two drafts amounting to $5000 on M. S. Babcook of San DltgO, who waa indebted ta»hiin in the amount named, on a laud sale. The Los Angeles National bank atcoepted the paper and Wallace checked out tbe lull amount. The drafts were accepted by M. S. Babcock on September 10, 1801, placed against bis credits in the Cali fornia bank ol Han Diego, and made payable December 1, 180!. In the interval, prior to Deoember Ist, tbe California bank failed and the Los Angeles National bank sought to recover by a euit ogainßt Wallace. At tbe first trial of the case the bank secured a judgment for the full account. Tbe caae went to the supreme court on appeal and the judgment of the lower court waa reversed. The re-trial yesterday result ing in a nonsuit throws the full load on tbe Los Angelea National bank, with costs. The end ia not yet, however, as it is understood that Mr. Wallace intends to sue the Los Angeles National bank for damages, resulting from an attachment which waa levied on his property, and for malicious prosecution. In department four, Hans Jorgen Mortenseu, a native ol Sweden, took tbe oath ot allegiance to the United States, and departed a citizen ol the republic. FATTKRBON MURDER TRIAL. Ia department one, Judge Smith pre siding, the whole ol yesterday was devoted to hearing testimony in the Patterson murder case, which is drag ging slowly along on the old line of evidence which was introduced hy the prosecution in the lower court and at tbe second trial in tbe superior conn, which resulted In a mistrial. LeCompte Davis, representing the district attorney's office, did not bring out any new points, while, on the con trary, Messrs. Ling and Appel, for the defense, devoted nearly all of their time to % partially successful endeavor to show the variance in the testimony as given on the two previous trials. The only popular interest in the case will oome when tbe defense begin tbe intro duction of their testimony, as it is understood that they have some recently discovered evidence on wbicb they rely for an acquittal. PLEAS AND ARRAIGNMENTS. Before taking testimony in tbe Pat terson case Judge Smith disposed of the regular criminal calendar: On the testimony ol his father Fred erick Mader, an incorrigible, was com mitted to tbe Wbittier state school dur ing the time ol hie minority. William Stevenson entered a plea of guilty to the cbarge of burglary, and was sentenced to one year in Folsom. The crime was committed in Pasadena, and was Stevenson's first effense. J. M. Jacqnet, by advice of counsel, withdrew his plea of not guilty and en tered a plea of guilty to burglary. He endeavored to argue his case on a plea (or mercy, but was silenoed by tbe court aud sentenced to five years in San Quentin. John Friend, his pal in tho commission of the crime, refused to withdraw his plea of not guilty and his case was placed on tbe trial calendar. Two cases against.Deputy Tax Collec tor Al Cobler was continued by consent. NEW SUITS, ETC. Papers in a suit against tbe directors ol the Irvington Land and Water com pany were filed by G. W. Wilson through bis attorneys late yesterday alternoon. The trouble grew out of a misunder standing ovsr an election recently held in the directory oi the corporation. Mr. Wilson prays to have the election of certain of the directors set asioo and asks that an option on certain lands lo cated in San Bernardino county in favor of E, J. Dale and guaranteed by C. E. Day and otbera of the direotory be de clared void, Complaints praying for decrees in divorce were tiled yesterday with the county clerk by Nettio Freeman vj. Eugene G. Freeman and F. VV.

Articles of incorporation were filed with the county clerk yesterday by the Southern California Lumber company, a San Franoisco corporation, who will enter the lumber trade iv this section E. F.
