NO. 177 HIGHLAND PARK IS OF US The District Yesterday Joined the City CARRIED BY NINE MAJORITY .he Vote Was Even Lighter Than on Thursday Vhit the New District Will (lain by the Move—A Problem for the Po lice Commission When the proposition for a greater Los Angeles first began to assume definite character, and it looKed as if the city would call a special election for the pur pose, some of those interested in the pro ject so fit? as it pertained to Highland Talk went before the executive committee of tbe annexation association of tbe four south and western districts, which on Thursday refused to become a part of tho city, and proposed that both of the then pending elections be held upon one and tbe same day. The offer made included, if acoepted, a proposition to pay to the south and western associations any and all of the expenses which had been by the latter committee incurred up to that time. The offer was flatly refused. Yes terday the people of Highland Park voted to annex by a majority of nine votes. On Thursday the people of Vernon, Pico Heights, Rosedale and University refused annexation by eighteen votes. Had the proposition of tbe Highland people Deen accepted by the southwestern districts, Los Angeles would today be just as large and no larger than was the city yester day. As it is, a step bas been taken in the direction of tbe greater city. It is a little bit of a step, to be sure, but it Is a step In the right direction,just tho same. The election yesterday was a very quiet affair, even more quiet than was the ore on Thursday. Contrary to general ex pectation, yesterday's election carried, although tbe total vote cast, especially inside the city, was not more than 2 per cent ot the entire total vote in the city. Arroyo Seco Park is now a part of tbo city and wiil have to pay a saloon license of $50 a month, if a license ia granted the place at all. This will be one of tbe new problems which the police commis sioners will havo to face. The election board In the annexed dis trict kept out lots of votes yesterday, per mitting only those whose names are in the great register to cast their ballots. Tbe new district will at once require police and lire protection. For the former purpose a mounted officer will probably be furnished to do night duty. What tho council will do for the new territory in the way of lire protection is a conun drum, as the city treasury is hardly in lliane for very much of a splurge in that direction. The new district 13 to be a part of the domains of Councilman George Htockwell. All of it is located in the First ward. The oity council will canvas the votes of yesterday's election Tuesday The re turns will then be certified to by the city clerk and deposited with the secretary of state, after which Highland Park will have been officially wiped off the map.

Oriental Complications NEW YORK, Oct. 4.—A special to the Herald from London says: With the reported cession of thur to Russia, which, however.has since been semi-officially denied from St. Pe tersburg, tho Eastern question has sud denly come to the front again. Minister Kato, the Japanese representative al the court of St. James, in an interview said: "There need be no mystery as to our de lay in evacuating the Liao Tung penin sula. The Japanese are simply waitng for the lirst payment stipulated by the treaty of Shimoi.seki. When these payments are made the Japanese troops will be withdrawn. I do not think Russia will press for evacuation only. Rathor I should say she will urge China to pay the necessary portion of the indemnity. "Japan was forced to yield Port Arthur on Ihe plea that her occupation of it would harm the eastern trade. There fore, I cannot see how Russia could take possession of the place and avoid the ap plication of the same argument to her own pretensions." "If this cession to Russia were con firmed," was asked," what, rould be the Japftusoo outlook in Corea?" "Very threatening," was bis excellen cy's reply, "with Russian troops at Viadivostock on the one band and Port Arthur on the other, but if this would be threatening to Japan it would, in my opinion, be even more so to China.''

DAQOETT comes back He Doesn't Owe rieguire Anything and Is Not Frightened a Bit SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 4.—John H. Daggett, the superintendent of the mint, says in relation to the charges brought against him by Congressman Maguire: "Well, as I do not know specifically what they are, I connot speak of them at present, except to say that they are base less and without foundation. My posi tion is impregnable. Ido not mean by that I have a 'pull' nt Washington. What I mean is that lam right. So far as my interesting myjelf in politics, of course I am. If they thought I was go ing to keep out of politics they should nu> have put me here. I have a right to assist in maintaining the supremacy of the Democratic party. I cannot say now whether or not any of the employees in the mint have been furnisning Maguire with information looking to my over thiow. "Maguire's objection to me is simply a question ot petronagc. He was friendly enough in April, but is not now. Tbe reason you will have to guess until I know just what his charges are. In fact, patronage is what caused all the howl to go up. Harbor Commissioner Colnon is after me because I aid not put a lady in the mint for bim. I told him tbat X had given tbe governor one appointment and Senator Dangiord another, and I thought that was about all San Joaquin was en titled to. As a matter of fact, I think Coluon ought to give me some of his patronage. I secured Budd his nomi nation, and in that way Colnon got his appointment. He aid nothing toward making me superintendent of the mint." Ex-Senator riahonc's Condition •WASHINGTON, Oct. 4.—General Ma hone shows a tenacity which is a sur prise even to his physicians.

Watkins as chairman of tho general Democratic committee in tbis city, tne Examiner says: "It is not generally believed that Buck ley and Raincy have had a falling out. It seems to be the impression that tho two wily workers of men have come to an agreeement to have a sham battle. They will pretend to be very bitter against each other, simply for the pur pose of breaking the great opposition that would naturally be raised up against them if lhey tried to control tho city to gether as they have done in the past. It is believcti to be an attempt on their part to force the people into thinking that divided they can both be beaten.

When it is taken into con sideration tnat tbe attacbiuents against Fitzsimmons' money in Dwyer's hands were issued more than a month ago and Corbett refrained from saying anything about it at that time, the fact gives rise to the suspicion that the conqueror of John L. Sullivan has kept this as his last card. Coroett said today that Fitzsimmons would have to put up $10,000 in the stake holders' hands without an attachment ticii to it, or ho would not light.

PRICE FIVE CENTS SECRETARY OLNEY IS DUMB Regarding the Question of ths Venezuelan Boundary ARBITRATION IS PROBABLE No Step Has Been Taken Since Qre<> am's Death It Is Not Regarded as Probable or Even Possible That Any Ultimatum Has Been (liven Associated Fress Special Wire. WASHINGTON, Oct. 4. — Secretary Olney positively refused to say anything touching any correspondence be has had, or intends to have, relative to the settle ment ol the Venezuelan boundary dis pute, so it cannot bo positively ascer tained whether he bas taken any steps recently to induce Great Britain to sub mit the matter to arbitration. It can be stated, however, that since Secretary Gresham's death and up to a very recent date, the department had not made a single move in that direction. But in asmuch as congress, by resolution, bas directed tne executive to nse its best efforts to bring tbe dispute to arbitration, it is very probable that, hating in mind the near approach of the assembling ot congress, Sccrotary Olney has been giv ing the subject the attention it demands, and is formulating his views to bo com municated to Ambassador Bayard upon the return of tho latter from his vacation In Scotland. Moreover, as the preceding letters of the late Secretary Oreshara on this subject appear to have failed to sj cure action by the British government, whose only response was a reiteration of their willingness to arbitrate the title to the lands,included witbin supplementary claims found outside of the vast tract which the Venezuelans have seized from them. Secretary Olney may feel that -Ihe time has come to make a more forcible presentation than tho mere statement that the United States would welcome a submission of tho questions to arbitra tion. As diplomacy has many steps between the initiat'on of an incident ami a de claration of war, it is possible, following ordinary usage, to set out such a view in terms while in style forcible, shall be eu tirely courteous and in no degree ap proaching an ultimatum, and auch un* donbtedly will be the nature of Secretary Olney's letter. This must be done in or der that some proper return may be made to congress in December next.* But further than that the secretary is not likely to proceed, for as an ultimatum is really a step toward war, to deliver such might b» regarded as an infringement of the constitutional right of congress. — Kansas Politics TOPEKA, Kas., Oot. 4.—The Demo cratic state central committee today de cided not to call a state convention to nominate a candidate for chief justice of the supreme court, the only office to be filled at tiie coming election.
