Citizens' Mass Meeting
Last Night
The Project Has at Last Taken
Businesslike Form
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
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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"In Los Angeles can be found a city of j
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
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.

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.

County Employees Fighting
the Wage Clipper
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.
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.
The National Association Discuss Questions of
Kansas City, Mo., Feb. 22.—One hun

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
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.
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
Senates Vest and Wolcott and a number
of others, acting in the cause of silver in
Congress, were not pesent at today's meet
Luckless Bandits Hold Up a 'Frisco
Express Train.
The Messenger Escaped prom His Car and
Baffled the Bold, Bad
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.
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
Death of an Oil Producer
