Southern Pacific Diplomacy Is
The Uniquely Wordeil Biil Introduced at
Ail the Deadfalls Closed Since the New
".Constitution Can Again Open
Their Doors
The reopening ol the dives is going to
be made possible by the adoption of Ken
ate Bill 310, which is not at all unlike,!;
during the present session of the Legis
laicire, unless ihe publicity which the
newspapers are giving the matter wil
make the Senators refrain from placing
themselves upon record as having vote*
for the measure.
The hill referred to was drawn by the
best attorneys in the state, und it is
claimed that the Southern Pacific Com
pany Uwyers had a hand in its prepara
tion. When the idea of framing the III]
was lirst conceived the dive-keepers de
cided to offer a decoy measure which
would divert public attention from bill
2-l'i. which they dcalfed to have become a
law at all hazards. About, a year ago the
saloonl.ocjK-rs made a bowl tor a uniform
license, and they formed associations,
appointed committees and did everything
in their power to hoodwink tiie 'public
and make it believe that they de
sired uniform license, which" was
not their real aim at all. As a result,
numerous protests were sent to Sacra
mento. They withdrew the uniform li
cense bill, but iv order to make the peo
ple believe that tbey were sincere when
they offered the bill, they had it again
introduced., and once again attention was
directed toward the hill, and it met with
concentrated opposition.
All this time Senator Bert, the saloon
keepers' friend, chuckled to himself and
had bill SKI lidvanced. It provided for
certain inoffensive amendments to the
county government act. It is a volumi
nous document, and is intended to amend
Section StS of the act to establish a uni- !
form lyst.m of county and township gov
The hill provides for the duties of county
officials. It regulates the subdivision of
counties, elections, mails, bridges, and 1
all the rest of it. Nearly every depart
ment of county official life Is considered,
and it is not until near the end that the
joker is inserted.
That provides that "the Boards of
Supervisors in their respective counties
have jurisdiction and power, under such
limitations 3nl ' restiuctions as are pre
scribed, by law, to license, for the purpose
of regulation and revenue, all and every
kind of business not prohibited by law
and transacted and carried on in'such
county: and all shows, exhibitions any
lawful games carried on therein, ami to
fix the rates of license tax upon such busi
ness, shows, exhibitions or games, and
pro vide for the collection of the same by
suit or otherwise, provided that such li
cense tax shall be based upon a fair and
dilutable distribution of the public bur
dens upon. aH classes of business, hav
ing due regard for die volume of business
transacted, without unequal or arbitrary
discrimination against any kind or class."
This provision destroys all power to
close dives and disreputable saloons in
every county in the state by demanding
and exacting a prohibitory license.
Not satisfied with this vitally important
privilege, the dlvekeepera wish to reopen
every disreputable resort which had an
existence since the adoption of the new
Constitution. The provision of Senate bill
24<i, which gives them this power, is as
follows: "To make and enforce within the
limits of their county all such local, po
lice, sanitary and other regulations, as arc
not in conflict with general laws: provided
that the provisions of this section shall
not be so construed as to empower said
boords of sn.erviso.rs to prohibit the con
ducting of itjny business for which a
license has hitherto been authorized under
the laws of this state since the adoption
of the new Constitution of 1879."
This is the bill which the divekeepers
wish to sec adopted. It is the bill which
Bert has introduced in their interests. It
is the only measure in which they are at
all interested. Uniform license is simply
a blind. The fact was discovered today
and the affair is now one of common
Some of the prominent local saloon men
were..i seen last evening by a Herald re
porter and' none of them had heard of
Senate bill 241>.
Bob Kearn, proprietor of the Richelieu,
said that he hud never heard of the ob
jectionable measure. "Last summer,"
said he, "when Attorney Baker of the
State Protective Association was in town,
he told me that the bill providing for
uniform licenses would be introduced
anrl of course I am familiar with the pro
visions of that bill, and favor its passage,
for it provides for the knocking out of
locnl option.
"Regarding the reopening of the dives
t have this to say: No first-class saloon
man favors the existence of dives. They
are detrimental to our interests and do no
good, but upon the contrary, ftirnii.li
criminals and drunkards for the Police
"This bill referred to I have never
heard of, and 1 doubt very much,that it
provides for or makes at all possible the
reopening of the deadfalls, fori reiterate
that 1 voice the sentiment of the State
Association of Saloon Keepers when 1 say
that I am now, and always have been, op
posed to granting a license to any one
who is not above reproach."
C. F. A. Last, the well known wine
merchant, who is one of the most intelli
gent and thoroughly posted liquor dealers
in the state, stated that he is not a nicm
her of the State Association at present,
but is likely to rejoin it later on. "I
have not heard of bill 2K1," said
he, "except what I have read in the
newspapers, and I doubt very much if the
objectionable measure quoted provides for
the openi,.. of the dives which have been
dosed at various times since the adoption
of the new constitution in 1879. The rcp 7
r'esentative wholesalers and first class
saloon men arc all unalterably opposed to
the dives and would give a good round
sum to see them wiped off the face of the
earth. They only disgrace the reputable
dealer, and furnish criminal and dis
graceful news for the press. It is the pro
hibitionists Who want the dives main
tained, for as one of them aaid to me in
the rooms of the Board of Supervisors
sometime ago 'if the dives were closed we
would no longer be able to tight the Honor
tratllc' " =i
Charles Schroeder, proprietor of the
Hollenbeck and Reception saloons, said
thai he had paid hut little attention to
the Protective Association's measures at
Sacramento. He knew that a hill provid
ing fate uniform license was introduced,
hut he professed igni.irance regarding bill
21H. "You may say. however." he said,
"that the association does not want dives
maintained or reopened, and I am linn
in the belief that bill 2411 contains no such
provisions as claimed. If the dives were
cleaned out the first-class saloon man
would not be looked down upon as he is
now, for he would lie a uinti among men

members of the l.os Angeles Wheelmen,
that this organization already have plans
perfected whereby they will soon establish
your city, at one"houu*d, asoneoi the very
greatest cycling towns of the country, by
i-otistritoting a three-lap cement track" and
accessories, the only thing detaining them
being certain minor details which are yet

into execution, your town will be the

become the thing with society people and
many millionaires tire now devotees of the

remarked, "the great number of hand

most pleasing factor to wheeling and if
possible increase the rosy hue already

" flic famous Mine Mini herger will man

The Syracuse people have heretofore

Hereafter the sporting page of The Her

Monday's paper.
The Herald lias made arrangements for
sporting news from all the towns and
cities »)f Southern California, and here
after tin? page will contain, in addition to
