Until thia much money is in sight the ordinance must remain as it is.

He would not, however, have paid tbe licenie if be had been worth $1,000,000, because be be lieved it to be nojust, Several lodging house men are not thus taxed at all, bat a few are forced to bear tbe burden. When he paid last quarter's license fee be was promised a rebate, which would bave been enough to have settled for this quarter, but the rebato was not forthcoming.

LOB MSGELES HERALD, FRIDAY MORNLNG, DECEMBER :8 1894, SAN BERNARDINO. A LIVELY LKGAL FIGHT OVER A COURT HOUSE CONTENT. , Mill Dunsford Out of Danger—Masonic Installation—A Kinb.r of IV.d dtngs —Notes. Pan Bernardino, Dec. 27.—Judge Otis bss dissolved the temporary injunction restraining tbe board ol supervisors from uxeouting the contract with Riley, Long ,v Thornton, of Lob Angeles, for the completion oi the west extension ot tbe court bouse. He did this at 3:45 yesterday afternoon, and jast 35 minntes later tbe cootraot, duly signed and wit nessed, was presented to County Re» coidsr Goodwine, and filed by bim at 4:20 p. m. Tbere was not any time for grass to grow, so far as interested parties were concerned, and if Contractor Kilpatrick had intended taking any farther steps by which the executing of tbe contract might be delayed, tba successful bidders did not propose to give bim much time in whioh to move. Hence all this celer ity. They did not even take time to chance the date of the contract, nhich had been drawn up December 17tb, and according to tbe cloaing paragraph, it purports to bave been signed on tbat day, but the freshness of tbe signature wben tbe docamoat was filed forbids be lief that the ink had been dry more tban 10 minutes. In bis decision Judge Otis held that tbe board, was tbe final judge ol a bid der's responsibility, and tbat they had tbe rigbt to throw out any bid on this ground alone, even thougnrbat bid was tbe lowest one, a point by no means conceded in the present case. Riley, Line & Thornton's bid was $33,850. Contractor Kilpatrick will not yet give up the fignt. His attorneys will appear in court when the trial calendar is next called, and demand that tha case be set down for trial. Tbe point settled yesterday involved only the petition for a temporary restraining order, and if in the mean time county money Is paid on tbe present contract, somebody may have to "din up," if the decision should be reversed, when the main issue comes up for settlement. OUT OF DANGER. Miss Danslord, the young lady who was burned at the Presbyterian church Christmas evening, while impersonating: an Esquimau Indian, together with two young men, was mora seriously borned than at first supposed.
