TO STORM SACRAMENTO Citizens' Mass Meeting Last Night BUILDING OF I SILT LAKE fill The Project Has at Last Taken Businesslike Form LEGISLATURE APPEALED TO A Committee of Twenty Citizens to Visit the Capitol Tbey Will Camp With the Lawmakers Until They Finally Succeed A Memorial Drawn Up to Be Circulated, and rlust Contain at Least Two Thousand Citizens' Names A citizens' mass meeting was held last eVeninig the rooms of the Chamber of Commerce, on the corner of Broadway and Fourth street. The attendance was very large and considerable interest was manifested. Mayor Raderpresided,Nathan Cole acted as secretary and J. M. C. Marble explained to those present the purpose for which the meeting was called. He briefly said that it was desired to get "the public sentiment regarding the prac ticability of building the Salt Lake road, and on this occasion the matter would bo ■fully discussed. Ex- Mayor William H. Workman was called on and he told about his trip East in furtherance of the project, and the way lie was received there. He said that all the capitalists he interviewed during his wanderings favored the building of the road, believing as they diil that it would bt a paying investment; that they were not slow to ask why Los Angeles capital ists did not open the enterprise with a substantial if not a handsome subscrip tion. "The building of this road," said the speaker, "cannot be opposed by the Santa Fe people. The Southern Pacific Com pany cannot be antagonistic to it for the establishment of the Salt Lake road would double its business just the same as the (Bjoming in of the Santa Fe trebled its re ceipts. If the Salt Lake road comes to Los Angeles it means the advent of sev eral transcontinental lines, which will tie indicative of continued prosperity to Southern California. The Hock Island, the Northern Pacific, Rio Grande West ern and I'nion Pacific will all come to this city, and even the Southern Pacific, if it so "desires, ran use the same tracks between this city and the Mormon capi tal. When this road is constructed it will be for the people, and the advantages that will follow its construction can hard ly be overestimated. p "As a taxpayer I consider the subject of greater importance than anything which has ever come before the people of this section. As for myself—and lama taxpayer and a property owner—l am willing and anxious to tax myself 10 per cent to have the road built. lam in fa vor of sending a committee to Sacramento to advocate the passage oi a bill which will bring before the people for their vote the proposition of issuing bonds for the building of this road." Mayor Rader then called upon Captain Cross to address the meeting, and he re sponded- "l feel that the matter is of vital im portance to every taxpayer," said he. and the more it is agitated the better it will be for the project. As matters now stand there is great danger of the north ern metropolis doing us up. for they un questionably have the necessary enter prise. "What did they do after meeting of San Joaquin Valley citizens in this city some time ago? Why they raised a few million dollars and are going to build a road to Bakersfield. But that is not going to he their terminus, hy any means. They will go on to Pioehe, and from thereon to Bait Lake, and if the citizens of Los An geles do notwak*' up. this beautiful city. I with all its possibilities of advancement, will be shut out. "Like Mayor Workman while I was in the East I found the capitalists there did not relish the idea that the moneyed men of this city do not do something finan cially in furtherance of the enterprise. "The proposed road will be a benefit to the whole country through which it passes, lam positive that there are many roads Which, would lease the Salt Luke road -when completed, and not a dollar need be until a lease is sinned. I am in flavor of naming a large committee—not a - small out.—to go to Sacramento and camp „wlth the legislators until they get what olthcy want. Let them put their hands iv '.Hheir packers and pay their own expenses "fwith no hope of reward other than the passage of the desired law." Rev. M. Uaskius was next called in and said that he had left the ministry on account of failing health and now en gaged in doing what good he can for oth ers. For that reason lie favors the Salt Lake project because it will help Los An geles aud everybody iv it. "The very mention of the plan," said the speaker, "brings back old times to me, for when I lived in Salt Lake, twenty eight years ago, it was going to be built then. When I came to California in 1879, I I met an old school fellow of mine, Isaac Trumbo. and he confided to me at that time that be was working on a plan to I construct a road from Salt Lake to Los Angeles; but nothing ever came ot it. Twenty years ago an old man named Dribble, whom Mayor Workman remem bers well, and who ran an ox team across the desert country between here and Salt Lake, told me on one OCCMSOn that the line was going to he put through. The road would be a practical investment, for : it is an absolute necessity. "Still these are hard times and anyone wdio will talk about building a railroad deserves a medal. When I agitated the subject some time ago in the East, the ■ people there said I was crazy. This mat ter reminds me of a story T once heard. There were several gentlemen assembled to further some scheme and they all de cided that it was practicable. One fellow who was full of business pulled out his book and wrote a check for 125,000 and said; 'I will start the ball rolling by donating this amount.' Suddenly every body present looked at his watch re marking, 'I have an engagement, and I am afraid I shall have to leave.' Don't let it be the same in this case. Let us put our shoulders to the wheel and work in unisou and then tho project cannot fail. "One thing should be settled before the committee goes to Sacramento, and that is to ascertain what is the nature of the country which lies between here and Suit Lake. It has been claimed that it is rich agricultural land, while others have stated that it abounds with coal and iron mines. A Xew weeks ago I met an en gineer who has traveled all over the ter ritory and he said that none of the land is tillable, but that it is rich in coal and iron deposits. The people should know whether the land is fertile or not, and in fact, all the details about the proposed route. "In Los Angeles can be found a city of j LOS ANGELES HERALD: ' SATURDA V MORNING, FEBRUARY" 23, 18*5. magnificent appointments for growth. Competing transcontinental lines are needed to accomplish it, and if I had property I would not care how much it was assessed if the line was only as sured. '' Frank G, Finlayson then spoke as fol lows : "The overwhelming importance of a rail road to Salt Lake is admitted by all. Now what is the most practicable plan for at taining this end? There are three known methods of railroad building, namely, as a purely private enterprise, paid for by private money only; as a public enter prise, paid for and performed hy the pub lic as a "state, county or municipal enter prise, and as a partly private and public enterprise. The best method involves a partnership between the public and pri vate individuals, and is usually accom plished by the state loaning its credit. This last method is now pnolnbitcd by our new constitution, and is therefore out of the question. As between the other two Which is the most practicable? The courts of all the states have repeatedly held that railroad building is a public or govern mental function, and that taxes levied therefor are levied for a public purpose. Now in the first the evils resulting from the assumption of public functions by private persons or corporations is as fraught with evil consequences as the as sumption of purely private functions by the Government. But aside from this abstract objection to railroad building by private means, there is another more prac tical objection. Private construction and ownership of railroads means increased taxation if we use it, and taxation in a broader sense than in technical meaning. In the broader sense every man, woman and child, every consumer in Los Angeles, is taxed for the building and operation of railroads, for the cost to every consumer ll affected by the rate of fares and freights. Whatever increases fares and freights in effect increases this taxation, and con versely taxation is decreased by whatever decreases fares and freights. Now, then, when a road is built by private capital the fares and freights must pay interest upon the cost of construction, a sinking fund to pay the cost of construction and dividends upon stock, which in the majority of cases is watered. Admitting that the public building of railroads would be attended by ! leakages, still it is not conceivable that | the amount of increase in taxation caused j thereby would equal the increase in fares and freights that would be due to watered I stock in case of a purely private enter prise. It is evident, therefore, that if we regard fares and freights as the same in Substance as taxation, that the increase of taxation due to the building of a railroad by the state or a society would be much less than the total amount paid in fares and freight to a private corporation. Hence, upon the ground of economy, it would pay for the counties to build their own railroads, even if the present gener ation had to foot the bills, but as the bonds would run for forty years, the next and succeeding gen erations would help share the expense. It is manifest, therefore, that the con struction of railroad highways by the pub lic is more economical and practicable than the construction of the same by pri vate capital; first, because it is as much a proper function of the Government as tlie building of country Highways, and, sec ondly, because of the great saving to all consumers and benefit to property owners. The next question is how shall* the bill for tliis purpose be passed? Tuesday next will be the fiftieth day of the present legislative session, after which no bill can be introduced except with the consent of two-thirds of tbe members. Therefore, whatever is done must be done quickly. Sent a delegate to Sacramento, introduce tin- bill next Monday, get it on the file, and then, if it be deemed the best bill for tbe purpose, get the Legislature to substi tute it for some measure of a similar character now on the file, ami in this way, by all pulling together, get the bill this session and build the road to Salt Lake within two years from now. Do this and Los Angeles will be a me tropolis." At this stage of the proceedings G. J. Griffith spoke up and said that he thought the other side should be heard from. He was then invited to speak to the assem blage, and with a deprecatory smile he mounted the platform. "I believe,'' said he. "that the better plan would be to subsidize same road to come in here in stead of taxing the people, which I am Opposed to doing. I have letters in my pocket now to show that years ago a road would have been built into Los Angeles if :i subsidy of only $,'}oo,ooo were given. I nm free to say that sometimes politicians lire sincere and sometimes they are not, emd I don't favor the building of the road in the way proposed. I am willing to give $1001) and several hundred others will §ive a like amount for a subsidy, and then a line can be brought in here* with out putting a burden on the taxpayer." Captain Gross jumped to his feet, and ••aid that the road trom Cincinnati to Chattanooga was constructed in the way now proposed, and he challenged anyone to say that there was any jobbery. In none of the campaigns which have* been held since, has it ever been hinted that there was any political trickery. lie said h«- would give $1000 to G. J. Griffith if he ■ould raise over $60,000 for a subsidy, and he would give him two weeks in which to lo it. L>r. A. S. Longley then offered the fol lowing resolution, and every one present saved. 1. Qrifßth voted for"it. Resolved, That this meeting indorse what is known us the Cincinnati plan as a means fur the construction ol a line ol railroad between Los Angeles and Halt Lake as the most feasible method of con structing such road. Resolved, That a committee of five citi zens ~f Los Angeles be selected by this meeting, who, in connection with the chairman of the meeting, shall appoint from among the citizens of Los Angeles a committee of twenty, who shall without delay proceed to Sacramento and lay be fore the Legislature the action of this i ting and use all honorable means to secure the passage by the Legislature of a law incorporating the aforesaid plan. Mayor Rader appointed the following committee: W. 11. Workman, Captain John Gross, .1. M. 0. Marble, A. S. Long ley and Frank tl. Finlayson. They immediately conferred and ap pointed the following committee to go to Sacramento: Mayor Frank Kuder, John Cross, .\. S. Longley, AY. H. Workman, John M. 0. Marble, Nathan Cole,jr., Frank <».

AND SEND IT TO THE HERALD PETITION FOR THE SALT LAKE ROAD To the Honorable, the Member, of the Senate and assembly of the Slate of California Tmrty-nrat Session: We the undersigned residents of the county of Los Angeles, do hereby respect fully petition you to exert every honorable effort to secure the pa-sage of a bil authorizing and enabling counties to build railroad, upon the basis of the plan known as the Cincinnati plan, as unanimously adopted at a public meeting held at the (jhamber of Commerce, February 22, 18U5. Name „ . , Residence TRYING TO SAVE SALARIES County Employees Fighting the Wage Clipper LOS ANGELES IN EVIDENCE It Looks As if* All the Subordinates Will Suffer Proposition Made to Pay the Heads of the Departments so Much and Let Them Pay the Clerks Sacramento. Feb. 22.—The Los Angeles delegation has been busy all day discuss ing the county officers' fee bill. They commenced at 9 o'clock and, with half an hour for lunch, kept it up until 6 o'clock. Major Donnell has been busy with them all the time. The problem proves very difficult because of the new county gov ernment bill, which will be reported Mon day in both houses. The bill is a good sized volume in itself, and covers the details of every office. Among its princi pal features is one giving to each office a lump sum from whibh the chief of the department—such as County Clerk, As sessor or Auditor—is to pay all his depu ties. The hill provides that the law passed two years ago for Los Angeles, by which fees for collecting personal tax should go to the County Assessor, shall be repealed, nnd fens are to go to the Assessor who is to pay with them, and his salary of $3000, all expenses of his office, including depu ties' salaries, etc. This would allow the Assessor about $17,000 for his salaries and all expenses of assessment. Senator Withington, of San Diego, who is Chairman of the Senate Committee on County Government, says that all the rest of the state will insist on that arrange ment. He thinks it will have the effect of making the assessor very careful to col lect all poll nnd personal taxes. He says as it now is only one-fifth of the whole poll tax is collected in San Francisco, and proportionately the same amount in other counties. In San Diego $7000 is allowed the assessor for all expenses. Bulla does not think the bill practicable. He says special effort was made to turn fees for collecting poll and personal taxes into the treasury, and the new system will upset that and not provide money enough for the assessors' legitimate expenses. Numerous requests for a raise of salary have been received from Los Angeles and elsewhere. All these have been disre garded, and if there are any changes they will be in the direct line of cutting down instead of increasing. A list of county employees and their salaries is expected here tomorrow, and if the list arrives the process of estimating the cost of each de partment of the county government will begin. The committee is to meet at 10 o'clock in the morning, possibly in case some office salaries instead of lump sum may be determined on. ARIZONIANS NOW IN TOWN The Legislators of ihe Territory Up for a Breath of Air A Jolly Crowd, All of Whom Admit This Is Paradise, and Will Be Until Arizona Becomes a State The overland on the Southern Pacific brought into the city last night a lot of wild Arizona legislators, loose for a vaca tion, hunting for a breath of fresh air and bound to have all the fun that can be squeezed out of Los Angeles and it sub urbs in three days. The party consists of J. Scott, W. H. Lake, E. F. Greenlaw, A. J. Doran, C. F. Hoff and F. T. Aspin wall, legislators, and Alonzo Bailey, Ed Butts and Frank Cox, citizens. The trip up was spent in appointing committees to take care of Lake but before the train reached town Lake was a committee of one to look out for the other fellows. The party is going to stay as long as their money, mineral water and cigars last. A motion to save the mineral water until Sunday on account of a Sunday closing law in Los Angeles was lost, Doran say ing that he and Fox knew the deacon's door tv several apollinaris shops. The Ariznnans will visit Mount Lowe and Pasadena and then go to Santa Monica for hot salt water baths before they start home, Mr. Hoff being authority that ihe Santa Monica baths woud cure the worst case of chills and fever due to drinking cold mineral waters, known. All the legislators say Arizona is growing at the rate of a mile a minute or faster, and that if it is made a state it will be no time until it will rival California for pro ductiveness. While here Mr. Lake wants to employ a typewriter and letters ad dressed to him, care of the Hollenbeck, will receive attention. PRESS REFORMERS The National Association Discuss Questions of Importance. Kansas City, Mo., Feb. 22.—One hun dred and fifty members of the National Reform Press Association met here today ior the purpose of considering questions looking to the advancement of the princi ples advocated by the Populist party. There is a very turbulent and aggressive spirit manifested among several of the delegates. The day up to 1 o'clock this afternoon was spent in considering the advisability of establishing a national news bureau in Kansas City. At that time no decision had been reached, and the matter was re ferred to a committee of five for consider ation and report. As predicted in these dispatches, there is a row on between the present officials of the People's party and some of the delegates at today's meeting. Dr. S. C. McClellin. editor of the Advo cate of Topeka, Kan., has put on war paint and has made threts that unless the People's party managers come around to his way of thinking he proposes to create a disturbance, which may have the effect of disrupting the present or gunizat ion. McClellin charges that there is an effort on to betray the party into the hands of the enemies. Chairman Taubeneck of the People's party national organization, has sent an ultimatum all the way from Washington, setting forth his views as to how the patty should be managed,and threatening that unless these are curried out he will resign Ins present position. Carl Hrowne is on the ground strongly advocating Jacob Coxey for the Presidential nomination by tiie Peoples party in 189(1. BIMETTALISTS A Secret and important Meeting of the League Held Yesterday. Washington, Feb. 22.—A number of rep resentatives of the American Bimetallic League met here today for conference at the leaague headquarters. Among those present were General A. J. Warner, presi dent of the league; Representatives New lands of Nevada and Sibley of Pennsylva nia. The greatest secrecy was maintained as to the conference. General Warner, however, said that they had come together to talk over the situation and nothing more. For the last few days, however, a rumor has been in circulation here to the effect that certain silver men were form ing a plan, which if carried out would result in placing a national silver ticket in the field for the next national cam paign. It is not believed, however, that the plan has as yet taken any definite shape. Senates Vest and Wolcott and a number of others, acting in the cause of silver in Congress, were not pesent at today's meet ing. NOTHING FOR THEIR PAINS Luckless Bandits Hold Up a 'Frisco Express Train. The Messenger Escaped prom His Car and Baffled the Bold, Bad Highwaymen Aurora, Mo., Feb., 22.—Frisco train No. 1, west-bound, Conductor Wiglitman and Engineer Stephenson, due here at 7:25 p. m ~ was held up two and a half miles east of this city tonight. Three men boarded the train at Martinsville, five miles east of Aurora, getting on the blind baggage. When about half the distance between that place and Aurora they crawled over the tender and covered the engineer and fireman with revolvers, commanded them to stop the train. Then they were marched back to the express ear, one of the robbers telling the cap tives that if they did not break in the ex press car door, both of them would be shot. The door was soon opened and the robbers then made search for the express messenger' but did not succeed in find ing him, as he had made his escape through the door in the rear of the car, locking it after him. After making thorough search of the car and not find ing anything and not having anything with which to open the safe, the bandits escorted the engineer and fireman back to the engine ami departed, disappeared in the darkness, firing several shots as they departed and which were answered by the conductor and brakemen. There is great excitement here and a posse is being or ganized to search for the outlaws. The crew on the train is the same one that was held up a couple of months ago about eight miles west of here. DEAD IN A BATH TUB A Retired Business Man Accidentally Drowned ■t Home New York, Feb. 22.—Hope Hoagland, a retired business man, was found dead last night in a bath tub at his residence in Somerville. Mr. Hoagland entnred the bath room at 4 o'clock. His son Frederick returned from business an hour later and waited for his father to take his accus tomed place at the supper table. His continued absence alarmed the family and search was made. He was found with head and shoulders submerged in the tub filled with water, and his legs high in the air. He was black in the face and had been dead some time. County Physician L. T. Reid and Dr. W. J. Swin ton think it a case of accidental drown ing, The position of the body indicated that Mr. QHoagland was about to leave the bath tub and fell backward. He had been suffering from a complication of ailments after a bad attack of la grippe. He was 58 years of age, and had been engaged until recently in business in Chicago. Death of an Oil Producer Bradford, Pa., Feb. 22.—John B. Zan, a prominent producer in oil, died today, aged 69. Mr. Zan was a delegate from California to the convention which nomi nated Abraham Lincoln, and was ap praiser of the Port of San Francisco.
