BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS A Number of Street Improve """" ments Recommended MACY STREET WIDENING The Protest Filed, as Proceedings Have Already Been Commenced A Salty Communlcatlm from C. Seventies, In Which Sum: Pertinent Questions are Asked—Building Permits At the meeting of the board of public works yesterday morning F. W, Peschke. for himself and other interested property owners, appeared to protest against the nroposed widening of Macy street, between Main street and the river. Mr. Peschke argued that the proposed improvement was not a public necessity at this tune: further, that the land proposed to be t iken was occupied with valuable Improvements, including rare trees and plants which could not be replaced in years. If this property is condemned the damages de- ' manded will be so great that it will lead to ' endless litigation. After listening to Mr. Reschke the board decided to recommend the filing of the protest, as proceedings for the work had already been commenced. The petition of the Raymond Oil and Natural Gas company, asking for a fran- j chiso to put iv pipes for supplying con sumers with natural gas in all parts of the 1 ' city, was also informally considered, but 1 ! 110 recommendation was agreed upon. , The following recommendations were adopted for submission to the council Monday: First—ln the matter of petition No. 140, from M. T. Bennett et al.. asking to have Bunker Hill avenue between Temple and First streets, and Court House street be- 1 tween Grand avenue and Flower street, 1 raised to the established grade, recom mend that the city engineer present the necessary ordinance of intention to grade, gravel and curb with redwood botii streets ' between the above mentioned points. \ • Second—ln the matter of protest No. | !!>!>, from W. W. Clark, et al., protesting against the laying of a sidewalk on San Julian street from Fifth to Seventh streets, recommend that the same be referred to the city engineer to present estimate of frontage. llTl.ird—ln the matter of petition No. 202 from J. H. Spear et al, asking that a cement sidewalk six feet in width be constructed 00 both sides of Georgia Bell street from Pico to Sixteenth streets, recommend that the city engineer be instructed to prepare and present the necessary ordinance of intention. Fourth—ln the matter of petition No. 201 from T. 0. Bircher et al. asking that Chest nut street from the southwest corner of lot 5. block 7 of the Ham,lion tract, to Pasa dena avenue be graded, graveled, curbed with cement under the bond provisions of the Yrooman act, recommend that the city engineer make the necessary estimate, and if the same exceeds the amount re quired by law. then to present the neces sary ordinance of intention.

Severance to the City Councilmen Among the papers iiled with the city clerk yesterday was a very salty com munication from C. Severance. This com munication ia in the form of an otien letter to the city councilmen, and several points are touched upon in very vigorous style. The first part of the letter is devoted to a discussion of Sunday legislation, which is very vigorotis ously opposed by the writer. After stating that there is a concentrated movement on the part of the religious people throughout the I'nited Slates to have Sunday laws en acted, and that from the petition recently presented to the council by the Methodist ministers he infers that it has reached the coast. Mr. Severance says: "There is a principle involved in the matter that outweighs everything else, and tic.ugh this clause which you propose to in troduce into city contracts may seem a email affair to some, it is great because of being an entering wedge for further re strictions of constitutional rights. These religious fanatics who seek to restore the Puritan Sabbath, when the only right a man had on that day was to walk rever ently to and from church, will never stop at that little clause in city contracts.but will make demand after demand through pe itions for more Sunday laws. "The time to light them and oppose such things is. therefore, in the beginning, Ttie only day declared sacred by the Bible, which these fanatics profess to believe in, is Saturday, ttie seventh day, and not the lirst. That is the day the Adveutists keep, and by bo doing they fulfill the commands ot the Bible, who. by the way. have no in fluence and secular government.'' But it is in the latter part of his letter that Mr. Severance makes the fur fly. There are several matters that the writer thinks should be ventilated, and he pro ceeds to do it with a frankness that is. to say the least, refreshing. A deiicato vein of satire permeates the whole of this epistle, the closing sections of which are as fol lows : It has been noticed that an ordinance is under consideration which, if enacted, will be unjust and oppressive. The one referred to is that one making it a misdemeanor to hitch a team within certain prescribed lim its. As the ordinance now reads, ttie local ity outlined is, like the penalty, much too large. Il would be about as sensible to en act an ordinance making a pass from the mayor necessary for country people to en ter the city, with capital punishment for ita violation, as it is to lay off such a large section and then fine a man $50 or give him fifty daye iv jail for hitching his team on certain paris of certain streets. It would be a trap into which many a poor rancher would fall, who is struggling with tbe mortgage of a city rhylock and the never ending conflict with poverty, and the very idea of subjecting anyone to possibilities is abhorrent in a free couniry, where artificial crimes have no place. If the evil is aogreat s«t to require BOttie re. lief, thore ia certainly no need of overdoing the thing by taking in en inncli of the city and imposing such alt outrageous penalty for so Hiinple an oifenae. It is a very reasonable inference to suppose that no man who would vote for sucit an ordinance would over have a political future; ami when SUOb a one is proposed it stamps the author of it as a suitable Candidate for some position where brains are not needed. It has also been observed by many of your fellow eitisens that a committee on "public, morals" lias been appoin c 1 Fro n your number. When tho fact is considered that every member of tue council has been publicly accuse I of riding on a street car the penalty for which is forfeiture of the oflice of councilman, it looks as though "public morals" would need purifying i from some other source. If the charge is \ true, and I havo see-t the card issued in i 1895 on which was found all your n tmce, then it is a most disgraceful thing for law . breakers to remain lawmakers. An ex planation is due the general public if you can make one, but silence, deep and pro found, prevails. When your honorable body was dealing with some of the picture* displayed on tho bill boards of theei'y, I shed tears of sym pathy over the moral shock you received j from seeing th? nether limbs of a lovely female indecorously exposed: end how I re ; joieed when some artist with ins little brush covered those shapely extremities ; with t,he modern bloomers, thus lessening ; your temptation to tread the path of sin. I At that time I had not seen the street ear ; pass with forty-seven names on it, includ i ing our highest city officials, otherwise my i emotions would have much restrain | cd. for, to be candid, I do not believe that i men holding moral natures receive no in jury from the possession of a street car 1 pass, the holding of which is prohibited by ' j law, were ever seriously shocked at the 1 sight of a high kicker as portrayed by art ; or revealed by nature. And now. gentle- | i men. if you are not really "in cahoots" | with railway corporations, will you kindly i rise and dispel some of the dense Buspi* ' j cion which hangs over you, before posing 1 !as regulators of "public morals. I have the honor to be, with distinguished eonsid- , eration, yours, etc., C. Severance. WANTS MORE HELP Street Superintendent Howard Asks for an Increase of His Force When the wave of ecomony s.vept over the city hall some weeks ago the ofTtoa of the street superintendent was the greatest , sufferer. A number of street employes were let out, and in consequence it has been found impossible to keep the high- 1 ways in proper shape. Yesterday Mr. i Howard filed the following communica tion with the city clerk, to be presented to the council Monday: Lcs ANGELES, March IS, 1806. To the Honorable Council of tho City of Los Angeles: GENTLEMEN:—I herewith hand your hon orable body a requisition covering theex peitse of my asphaltum gang, during the ' time I deem it necessary to repair tiie pavements of our principal streets, which have become next to impassible. At pres ent 1 am using four men on the asphaltum gang, but by using six men can accomplish twice the results. Of the twenty men al lowed me by your honorable body. live aro kept constantly flushing the severs, two are kept busy at carpenter repairing, and to further reduce the force repairing the graveled streets by taking my asphalt gang of six men from their number would destroy its effectiveness entirely. I there lore hope your honorable body will pass ! lhis requisition at once, thereby making it possible for me to repair the streets at a season of the year they most require it. I also desire to call your attention to the indispensable need of gutter sweepers for our principal streets, since your honora ble lx>dy saw fit to remove the four gutter sweepers hitherto employed by this da ! partment the condition of the gutters has become such as to be a menace to the health of our city, besides having a contin ually untidy appearance not seen in other cities ou the coast. BUILDINU PERMITS A Number Issued by Superintendent Strang? yesterday The following building permits were is sued by Superintendent Strange yester day : Ira Tilden. frame barn on the east side of Grand avenue, between Eleventh and i Twelfth streets. $200. Mrs. tj. A. Everett, addition to frame dwelling at No. I'_'7s Pasadena avenue, $KtlO. Ksbecca T. Smith, addition to frame dwelling at No. Olio Georgia Bell street, $100. Ilr. R. C. Kirkpatriek, addition to frame dwelling on the east side of Grand avenue, at Washington and Twenty-lirst streets, *1000. Thomas Copley, to build brick wall un der frame dwelling and make store on first story. No. 127 North Broadway. $1500. Ralphs Brothers, four-story brick build* ing at the southwest corner of Sixth and Spring street, $15,000. Charles M. Meeker, six one-story frame dwellings on the east side of Antonio av enue, near East Main street, $1000 each. Also nine one-story frame dwellings on the west side of Moulton avenue, near East Main street, $1000 each. City Mail Notes Secretary Dandy of the board of educa tion was busy all day yesterday handing out salary warrants for the school teach ers. About $28,000 was disbursed. The garbage dump has been changed from the foot of Ninth steeet to the etui of Santa Fe avenue, about a quarter of a mile beyond the terminus of the street car line. The change is not generally known, and the attaches of the health otlice were kept busy all yesterday answering ques tions. The site for the new carnage cre matory has not yet been decided upon. A lengthy petition was tiled with the city clerk yesterday, setting forth that the fer tilizer factory, on the San Fernando road, near the foot of Pepper avenue, has be come an intolerable nuisance to tiie resi dents in that vicinity, by reason of the stench, and that its continuance will be a menace to tho health and lives of said resi dents. The council is asked to adopt Buch measures as will afford relief. In the matter of petition No. 210, from the National Ice company, asking te pump water from the river to their works, to be used for flowing over pipes in order to cool the same, and agreeing to convey the ! same back to the river without polluting the water, the zanja committee yesterday recommended that the same be referred to the city attorney to report to the coun cil whether or not there will beany legal objections to granting the prayer of the petitioners. The office of the superintendent of build ings is one of the busiest places about the city hall these days, and both Mr. Strange aud the plumbing inspector are kept on the move. Any one having doubts as to the amount of building going on can have them cleared up by spending a short time in this office. Good cooks know the hest food is only made with Dr. Priee : s Making Powder. Was He An Old Soldier? Efforts are being made to ascertain whether W. E. Graves, the painter who died so suddenly last Wednesday on Que bec street, is a member of the G. A. R. Graves is said to have several times re marked that he was an old soldier, but no papers were found lo identify him is such, or to indicate any connection with the G. A. R. Members of local posts are en deavoring to ascertain the facts so as to have him interred by that organization if possible, and thus save the body from a pauper's grave. It fetches one up very short to be seized with pleurisy, pneumonia or any acute throat or lung affection. Dr. D.

The committee on public worship re- i . ported that Bishop Wilson would preach at 11 a. ra. this morning. , Yesterday morning an eloquent sermon was delivered by Rev. R. A. Rowland, sec retary of the conference, from Canticles, chap, iv,, o:d: "Awake 11 north wind, and come thou south; blow upon my gar den, that the spices thereof may flow out." The gentleman said, in part: The wind represents the Holy Spirit, the north wind the spirit of conviction, the | south the abiding power anil presence of j the Paraclete, the garden the church of ; God, and the spices the fragrant influences ! that go out from lives of holiness and god- j iiness. The help of the Divine Spirit is es sential in our church life. Without it, no i m ilter how large the church may be, or whatever its outward exhibitions may be | of prosperity, the church is simply a sepul chre in which men's souls are buried, if the power and presence of the Holy Spirit be absent. In an earnest peroration the reverend gentleman urged the paramount import ance of holiness of life, and urged the audi ence to seek the baptism of the Holy ■spirit. After the sermon the ladies of the church entertained the ministers and visitors with an ample luncheon in the church parlors. The afternoon session was taken up with reports from various ministers in refer ence to their charges. The Rev. Q. A. ()ats preached the sermon in the evening. Tho conference will he in session Beveral days. The arrangements for the services on Sunday w ill be announced later. Good luck crowns the cook who uses Dr. Price's Baking Powder.
