A PEACE TREATY OFFERED
Proposals Made to the City
Administration
THE LIQUOR INTERESTS PLAN
A Select Committee to Handle License
Matters
Copy of the Resolution Recently Adopted by
the Los Angeles County Auxiliary
Branch ol tbe Protective Association
Tbo present city administration is evi
dsntly a believer in the doctrine of pro
tection in all things. AH infant industries
most be properly nurtured so that they
can expand and become of value to those
most interested. It was tbis policy which
turned over to Theodore Bauei a monop
oly of tbe saloon and attendant business
in the district bid by the Alameda street
fence, and now an alliance bids fair to
be consummated between the administra
tion and tho organization known as the
California State Protective association,
Los Angelea county branch.
ihe association is composed of all of
tbe liijuor dealers, both wholseale and re
tail, in tbe city, and at a meeting of its
members held a few days ago tbe execu
tive committee of the association agreed
to tbe formation of a SDecial license com
mittee of the organization, to whom it
la to hereafter turn over all applications
for saloon licenses aud tbe revocation
thereof. At the same meeting tbe asso
ciation drew up the following resoutions:
Whereas, It is the purpose of this or
ganization to promote the interest of its
members by assisting, as far as practi
cable, in a reasonable and proper regula
tion of the liquor traffic and thereby sup
pressing objectionable and obnoxious fea
tures incident thereto, and thereby pro
tecting the business, property and vested
rights of the respectable persons and
rirms engaged in the business; and
t| Whereas, The promiscuous and general
granting of liquor licenses and tbe abuse
of privileges under those already granted
is most calulated to injure the business;
therefore bB it
Resolved, Tbat it is the opinion of this
association that the proper and conserva
tive regulation of the granting and main
tenance of licenses is the moat important
and etlicacions metbod of reform that
could be inaugurated: that at present
there are numerically as many saloon
licenses in proportion to the population
as there should oe, and tbat the number
toereof should not be increased except in
very special and meritorious instances;
therefore be it
Resolved, Ihat there shall be added to
the stauding committees of tnis associa
tion a furtler committse, to be known as
the committee on licenses; that this com
mittee shall consist of three members be
sides the piesideut, secretary and attor
ney; that it shall bo the duty of this
committee, with the assistance of the at
torney, to keep informed as to all appli
cations for license, und shall investigate
the financial standing and moral charac
ter of tbe applicants and report the same
to the executive committee at each meet
ins tbat thereupon the executive com
mittee shall determine whether in its
opinion the license should be granted or
reused; and that if it ne determined for
any reason tbat it should not be granted,
tben this associaton shall, by its presi
dent and secretary, tile a protest witn the
police commission or board of supervisors,
as the case may be, against tlie granting
of soch license, which said protest shall
be presented by the attorney ot the asso
ciation a d urged to the full power, ca
pacity and influence of this association;
and oo it further
Resolved, On the other hand, tbat this
committee on liceose shall iuvestigate
all instances of infraction of state or mu
nicipal laws or misdemeanors tbat come
to its knowledge of members or other per
sons or firms engaged in the traffic, and
make report of the same to tne executive
committee, and if upon consideration
thereof th* executive committee con
cludes that it is to tbe interest of a prop
er regulation of the business that the
license of such persun or firm should be
revoked, then a petition for such revoca
tion shall be filed witb tbe police com
missioners or board of supervisors in the
name of the association by tbe president
and secreiary. and presented by tbe at
torney and vjraed as in the case uf protest
against graniing of license; be it further.
Resolved, That the board of polios com
missioners and board ol supervisors be in
formed of tbe purport of tnis resolution,
and tbat said board be requested to nuke
such rules as to tbe consideration of ap
plications for licenses and revocation
thereof as will permit the purpose of this
resolution being carired into effect.
Resolved, further, That the proper au
thorities be urged to strictly enforce or
dinances prohibiting persons and firms
having no license and selling either as
wholesalers or retailers.
The new license committee of tue asso
ciation will, should the city and county
anthorities avail themselves of its good
offices, be tne most powertul combina
tion in tlie oity. During elections will
its power be felt the most. Snould its
offer of assistance he accepted, the whole
liquor traffic in the city and county, will
Be centralized in its hanos.
A copy of the resolutions above was op
for consideration before the police com
mission yesterday, and was filed. The
board has practically agreed to the alli
ance offensive and defensive proposed by
the association, aud the treaty between
Ibe city administration and the liquor
dealera bas been all hut consummated.

MRS. ORMANDY ON TRIAL
She Is Charged With Passing
Counterfeit Money
MAKING OUT A STRONG CASE
Martinez Held to Answer to tbe Charge
of Rape in $5000
His Daughter Tells the Story of the fright
ful Abuse She Received at
tils Hands
The trial of Mrs. J. H. Ormandy, on a
charge of having counterfeit money in
her possession and passing the same, was
commenced before .Judge Wellborn and a
jury in the i'nited States district court
yesteraay. Only one or two witnesses
wore examined,when the Oo ill adjourned
on account of the Illness of Judge Well
born. Mrs. Ormandy and her bUSSbnd
were arre-ted some months ago by Detec
tives Auble and Hawiey of the civ policu
force. In the house occupied by them
near the corner of Seventh and Olive
streets wore found a large supply of
plate casts, 01 the counterfeiting imple
ments and a lot of counterfeit money.
Ormandy bas admitted that he was en
gaged in counterfeiting, but claims that
his wife knew nothing about it. The
prosecution doss not take tbis view of the
matter,and it is claimed that some strong
testimony will be introduced today. The
trial of Ormandy will also take place to
day, if that of his wife "'s concluded In
time.
Pearson and Ah Fook
Otto Anderson, who was arrested under
tlie name of John Peaison, and Ah Fook
were tried yesterday before Judge Smith
1 and a jury on a charge of committing a
' crime ajainst nature. Tolice Otlicei
I Lennon testiliod that he catitht tne men
j in the act, and described the whole mat
ter. Tbe men denied thei" guilt. The
j man Anderson was tried first, and the
i jury retired. Tbe Cninamnn was then
j placed on trial. In the midst of tbe ar
; gument in tne latter case, the jury in the
I lirst case Having failed to agree, Assist
' ant l'istiict Attorney Williams suggested
j that as about tbe same conditions would
I prevail last night as on the night the
I crime was committed, it would be a good
\ idea to take tbe jury to the spot and at
-1 low them to demonstrate for themselves
; wtiether it was possible for the policeman
Ito bave seen the act, as be swore he had,
and which defendants denied, tbis appa-
I rcntly being the snag on which the jury
lin the previous case bad struck. The
i suggestion was accepted, nnd tiie court
j adjourned, it being understood that tbe
jury would be taken to the scene al 1:50
' o'clock.
.lartiner Held In $5000 Ball
I Tba preliminary examination of Msr
, tinez ou a charge of rape occupied most
of the time in the townsnip justice'l
court yesterday, the result ot which was
that he was held to answer in $5000
I bonds. From tbe testimony it appears
j that tbe incestuous brute ravished his
I own daughter wben she was only 12years
!of age and continued his illicit relations
j witb the child for three years. As a re*
suit the girl became a mother about a
year ago. To add to the enormity of tne
offense the practices were sept up In the
I house where tbo motner was. and tlie girl
; testified that her father frequently left
:11 is own bed, after he had retired with
I his wife, and went into her room adjoin
ing, after his wife went to sleep, forcing
I her to yield to his wishes. The girl is
now in good bands and will he welt taken
1 care of. Martinez did not see 11 to oppre-
I date the position in wnich ne was placed,
! and frequently laughed during the time
that the child was telling her horrible
story. The crime is, In some respects,
one o' tiie worst in the criminal history
of the state.
Held to Answer
The uncertainties ot the law have been
again demonstrated in the case of James
Hill, the Santa Monica rancher, held by
the justice of tbe peace at San Fernando
to answer to the charge of horse stealing.
The facts of the case were given in fhe
Herald yesterday morning. Sheriff Burr,
as well as the district attorney, are very
i indignant over the whole transaction,
| and the case will probably be dismissed
las soon as it is reached in the superior
court. In the mean time Hill is out on
| bond.
Convicted of Disturbing the Peace
Deputy District Attorney Willis yester
day went out to Alhumbrn, where George
Capistrano was tried before Jnstice Fisher
npon a charge of attempted burglary.

THE LAW IS VERY PLAIN
Tto city Officials Who Can Be
Made to Go
GISH AND HULL WILL FIGHT
The City Treasurer's Office Can Also
Be Abolished
The Civil League, However, la Not After
Hartwell, Became His Removal
Would Be Too Radical
City Assessor George Hull and City
License and Tax Collector John 11. Gish
will soon he out of a job if the Citizens '
league can bring that result about, and
it looks as il both officials can really be
legislated out of office.
The last legislature enacted a law giv
ing to cities of tlie lirst class the power
to abolish the offices id' city treasurer,
city licenseand tax collector and city as
sessor. Ihe act can be found on page 219
of the statutes of 1885.
With the aid of City Attorney W. E.
Dunn, a Herald reporter was yesterday
enabled to lind the provisions of tho new
act. The law is a very voluminous affair
and provides for tlie abolishment of the
official positions named by the passage
of two separate ordinances, one of whicli
is to presretbe bow tbe proposed amalga
mation to ihe county otiices of tho same
rank can he brought about, and the other
declaring the mnnicinSl positions vacant,
as stated.
Most of the members of the council ap
pear to be in favor of the proposed inno
vation, which lias caused sometihng of a
sensation about the city ball. The O vil
league is not after 1 he scalp ot the city
treasurer, its otlicers claiming that tbe
abolishment of tbat position would tend
to too radically tear the city charter into
smithereens.
The new law provides Hint snob duties
of tbe tax collector as the collection of
licenses shall be performed by tiie chief
of police, wdiile Ihe worn of the assessor
not to be performed by the county asses
sor is to be looked after by tbe city clerk. 1
The board of supervisors ami not tbe
city council will hereafter equalize 1 lie
city tax rolls, tho county auditor being
required on the second Monday iv August
of eaeli year to turn over to tlie council a
statement of tne total taxable property of
the city.
There appears to be a question aa to
whether or not the new law is constitu
tional, but the onus of making an issue
in tlie matter is to be placed upon tbe
two officials win are to be legislated out of
office. The civil league has given it out
that its members are not after Gish and
Hull, but they are determined to break
up what they call the system of indis
criminate deputies in both offices for
whicii the tax payers are compelled to
foot the bills. Botn Gish and Hull will
light the uttiiipts to remove tbem
through all the courts of tho state.
City Attorney Dunn is not prepared to
discuss the legal phases of the question.
The special committeeof the council which
bas thu mat • • in charge has not yet con
sulted witb him upon the subject. Should
the 1 revisions of the law gn into effect,
the county will foot the oills for tho col
lection and assessment of city taxes, the
board of supervisors dcaueting the cost
of the worst from tbe funds of the city
before the latter are turned into the city
treasury.
