The news from Yuma to the effect that

head.

nearly all of the money necessary has been
secured by the committee to defray the
enormous expense that it will take, but
Mr. Bilicke says lie will have no trouble in
securing the balance of $2500 to make up
tbe $7000. Over 900 miles of transporta
tion has been'donated by the different rail
road companies for their benefit, and to
give them an opportunity to see Southern
California. Both Mr. Bilicke and Mr.
Lynch wish it understood that everything
will be free to the guests.

OIL GOES UP AGAIN
Directors of the Oil Exchange Raise Ten
Cents a Barrel
At the meotiinr of the directors of the
Los Angeles Oil Exchange, held yesterday
afternoon, the price of petroleum was by
them advanced from 70 to HO cents f. o. b.
at this city. This move has been in con
templation for nearly two weeks, ond
would probably have been consummated
had the board met insess : on last Monday.
A number of the members favored a much
areater advance, even to the dollar notch,
but the more conservative ones carried the
day, nnd, for the present, at least, the
price will remain as ahove quoted.
From all indications, however, $1 per
barrel will be the quotation ere long, aud
when this point is reached the producers
will once mure commence to make money.
The advance is but a natural result of the
law of supply aud demand, now consum
ers continually coming into the field and
the production showing a daily diminution.
Besides the San Francisco market, which
promises to absorb a large percentage of
the output, Arisona and New Mexico have
lately come forward with' large orders.
Mr. W. F. Botsford, president of the Cali
fornia Oil Transportation company, left
the city yesterday afternoon for San Fran
cisco to be present when the Enoch Talbot
arrives at that port and superintend the
unloading and delivery of her cargo. While
there arrangements will be made for her
immediate return to San Pedro for another
load. The Talbot's cargo, now on her
way north, brought but 65 cents, while
yesterday's advance will affect any future
shipments by her.
One of the old North wells, which had
been abandoned as worthless, having
ceased to pay for pumping, was lately
taken in band and cleaned out. As a re
sult the well yesterday pumped sixty bar
rels and bids fair to continue at that rate
for some time. The Standard Oil company
report their tanks as nearly full, with of
fers encouraging. While the market is
slow, the outward movement nearly bal
ances the supply, and the action of ttie ex
change is expected to create a firm feeling
all along the lino.
NEW TOURIST HOTEL
Major Klokke Oeneral Manager In Charge of
the Raising of the Fund
An important meeting of the Adams
street tourist hotel committee was held in
the office of Edward Miller yesterday after
noon, at which were present H. Jevne, A.
E. Potneroy, J. S. Slauson. E. A. Miller, E.
F. C. Klokke, W. W. Howard and S. B.
Lewis. An executive committee was
elected, consisting of J. S. Slauson, E. F. C.
Klokke, E. A. Miller. S. B. Lewis and W.
W. Howard, of which Mr. Slausen was
made president and Mr. Miller secretary.
Mr. E. F. C. Klokke was unanimously
chosen general manager in charge of sub
scriptions.
In the choice of a general manaeer the
committee felicitates itself, particularly as
Mr. Klokke haa determined to give the
matter his undivided attention until the
money is raised. His prominence as a
public spirited citizen, together with the
successful efforts which lie has heretofore
exerted in numerous enterprises give as
surance that his association with the pre
sent movement means success.
The committee has positive and binding
assurances from responsible Chicago par
ties that as soon as the subscription list is
raised to the required llgure.enough money
will be promptly added thereto to give to
this city a tourist hotel second to none
upon the Pacific co:ist,and to have it ready
for business by December 15th. next.
The committee have rented oiflc?s in the
Byrne building and placed a corps of com
petent assistants in charge of the details
of the enterprise. The greatest confidence
is felt that the money will all be promptly
raised. Subscriptions are coming in with
gratifying promptness aud liberality.

THE MUNICIPAL LEGISLATORS
KEGXUR WEEKLY MEETINd OP THE CITY
COUNCIL
A Large Amount of Routine Business At
tended to—Anlmsted Discussion Over the
Piping of the Arrovo de los Reyes on
Second Street—Reports of Officers
Councilman Snyder presided as president
pro tern, at ill© meeting of the city council
yesterday, Mr. for the time being
having his headquarters in the mayor's of
fice at the north end of the hall. All of the
members were in their Beats.
A message was received from President
Teed, as arum: mayor, to the etTect that he
had been untitled by the clerk that tbe
mayor was incapacitated on account of
sickness, and that under the charter provi
sion lie hail entered on the discharge of the
duties of the office.
The ordinance for the grading of Breed
street passed, and the bitching ordinance
was Hied.
Hereafter all contracts for street work
will contain a clause specifying that no
part of such work shall be done ou Sim
day, in accordance with the Methodist min
isters 1 petition.
Various other matters of minor Import
ance were also passed upon.
iin the recommendation of the supply
committee, a number of requisitions for
supplies for ihe various departments were
allowed, among them being several for the
employment of engineers and others at
tiie headquarters.
The draft of thecontract with tho Even
ing Express for the city printing, with the
bond, was approved.
Tiie contract with Wm. Peterson, to re
move dead animals for a period of three
years, with the usual bond, was also ap
proved, as were also the contract and bond
of the boston Woven Hose and Rubber
company, for furnishing 1200 feet of
woven hose.
The report of the board of public works,
as published in The Herald Saturday
morning, wae read and the various recom
mendations adopted without debate until
that section was reached recommending
that the city clerk be instructed to adver
tise for bids to lay a pipe line on Second
street and Fremont avenue to connect
with the Arroyo de los lieye.- storm drain:
also to pips the arroyo between Ninth and
Tenth streets in the fourth ward. Mr.
Stockwell of the first ward protested
against this improvement, on the ground
that it was improving the streets in front
of private property at the city's expense,
when it should be borne by the property
owners, and if allowed, similar requests
would come in from other sections which
in justice would have to he granted. Mr.
Munson thought the improvement should
be made, as the people in that vicinity had
spent a great deal of money in improving
their property, and it would not be just to
compel them to pay for this work. Mr.
Kingery was opposed to the improvement
unless'lie Arroyo de los Reyes was also
piped between Ninth and Tenth streets, in
liis ward. Mr. Teed called attention to the
fact ttiat most of the piping of the arroyo
had been done by the interested property
owners. Mr. Munson made another elo
quent argument in favor of the improve
ment, and said that if this pipe line was
not constructed, lie believed that the inter
ested property owners had good causa for
action against the city for chaugiug the
grade of the Btreet, after they had already
paid for the work. The gentleman was
called to order by the member of the First
ward, but the point was not sustained, and
Mr. Munson continued his argument. The
recommendation was finally lost by a vote
of -1 to 4. Mr. Munson made another ef
fort to get the Second street proposition
before the council, but the chair ruled
against him.
Councilman Munson moved that the
street superintendent be instructed to fill
i a depression at Orange and Bixel streets,
caused by the Bottling of a fill. So or
dered.
Councilman Pessell moved that a fire
alarm box be placed at the corner of San
Pedro and Washington streets, and Coun
cilman Munson moved that lire alarm
boxes be placed at the corner of Broadway
and First streets and llurlington avenue.
Both motions went to the lire commission
Councilman Kingery moved that the pro
ceedings for the sidewalking of Burlington
avenue between Seventh and Eighth
streets be abandoned and the property
owners be given the privilege of having
the work done by private contract, pro
vided that they pay the expenses hereto
fore incurred; that the signs on West
Beacon be changed to Beacon street, tho
name having been changed; and that the
street superintendent dig a small ditch at
Eighth and Carondelet streets to partially
divert storm water. The various motions
were adopted.
Treasurer Hartwell reported that there
were duplicate bonds on Twelf tli street, a
complication growing out of an error, and
as lie had been unable to straighten the
matter out with the street superintendent,
lie wantetl an order for the cancellation of
the erroneous issue.
Motions of Messrs. Snyder, Blanchard
and Savage that fire alarm boxes be placed
at Second street and Fremont avenue, First
street and Kvergreen avenue and Date
street and Winston avenue were referred to
tiie fire commissioners.
On motion of Council man Snyder, prop
erty owners on Golden Gate avenue, Malt
man and Michelvorena streets will be per
mitted to road up tiie streets at tbeir own
expense.
The report of the health officer, calling
attention to the unsanitary condition of
the closets in the city hall, was presented
and referred to the sewer committee, as
was also tiie recommendation in the mat
tor of the Boyd street sewer.
On motion of Councilman Munson, tbe
proper officers to report on whether dam
ages should be allowed property owners on
Third and Sixth, Fremont avenue and
Bixel streets, by reason of the change of
grade, were instructed to at once report to
the council what nad been done.
The city engineer reported ordinances of
intention establishing the grade of Twen
ty-first street from Norwood to Toberman,
and Cleveland street from Alpine to Col"
lege, which passed; the ordinance of in
tention establishing the grade of Kip
Btreet was "hung up," as there is a claim
pending for damages.
Final ordinances establishing the grade
of the following streets were presented by
the city engineer and adopted: Glowner
street from Twenty-first to Twenty-fifth;
Twenty-second street from Maple avenue
to Trinity street; Montreal street from
Bartiett to Alpine; Burton street from
Trinity to the eastern terminus of Burton;
Adair street from Twenty-first to Twenty
third; Trinity street from Twenty-first 'to
Twenty-third: Towne avenue from Eighth
to Twelfth; Matrnolia avenue from Mission
road to State street; Union avenue from
Sixth to Orange streets; Soledad avenue
from Kensington road to Bellevue avenue
Tho city engineer also presented the fol
lowing additional ordinances of intention,
which were adopted: To construct a six
foot cement sidewalk on the east side of
l'asadena avenue from Hoffman to Work
man streets; to improve Lecotivreur street,
from Pasadena avenue to Aloffett alley;
to improve Clanton street from San Pedro
street to Central avenue; to construct a
six-foot sidewalk on the south side of Fif
teenth street, from Grand avenue to Hill
street; to construct a sewer on Second
street, from Boyle avenue to St. Louis
street.
Motions on a number of minor matters
were presented and referred to the proper
committee, after which tho petitions were
also read and referred.
Mr. Munson made another effort to get
his Second street pipe project before the
council on a motion, but again failed and,
after granting the decoration committee of
la fiesta tbe use of tbe street force to assist
in putting up and taking down the decora
tions, a recess was taken until 2 o'clock.

John B. Franklin, appeared before the
council and urged that lie he allowed to

stead of outside, as required by tho con
tract. Mr. Franklin guaranteed that with
his crematory there would be no eatiso for
complaint, and that with the improved
construction, there would not bo the alight
est cause for complaint. He said that he
would prefer to lie tinder the jurisdiction ol
the city council, as he wished to can y out
the terms of his contract up to tiie leticr.
Mr. Pessell wanted to know what effect,
if any. it would have on the contract, if the
council should allow the garbage contrac
tor to have his crematory erected in the
city, instead of outside.
the city attorney was sent for and he
stated that this could be done if it was en
tored into in writing, signed by the contrac
tor and the mayor.
After debate a motion was made that th(
matter be referred to the health officer am

tered a vigorous protest against the pro
posed action. He said that lie did noi
mean to say that the crematory would l»

was, lie wished to enter his protest against

THE L/ETARE MEDAL
This Year It Comes to Los Angeles-in
History
For twenty years tbe University of Notre
Dame, Indiana, lias observed the custom
of presenting each year a medal to some
distinguished member of the Catholic
church. The presentation takes place on
mid-Lent Sunday, and as that day is called
by Catholics "Listare" Sunday, the medal
was known as the Ltetare medal. Natur
ally this disdnotion is one mueb valued by
Catholics. It is given not only fur services
rendered to religion, but for distinguished
achievement in arms, in art, in science, Ir
literature, in civil affairs. Suoh well known
persons ns Augustine Daly, John Boy It
O'Reilly, Bliss Allen Starr, Gilmary Shea
have been recipients of this testimonial.
This year the medal has come to Califor
nia and to Los Angeles. The University
of Notre Dame has wished to honor itseli
by enrolling among its medalists that dls
tinguished citizen and soldier, Cen. W. S
Kosecrans. The address accompanying
the medal explains the motives which do
termined the university to select a soldiei
this year for tho highest honor within lv
gift.
Owing to the health of ihe general, thi
presentation was made privately. Sunday
at 3 p.m., the Kt. Key. Bishop Mont
gomery, accompanied by Ut. Rev. Biaho]
Medlycott and Very Rev. J. Adam, V. G.
drove out to the general's residence a
Kosecrans. Only the members of th
family were present.
After a few introductory remarks Bisho]
Montgomery rend the following address:
Few men who have borne like you thi
rigors of war are privileged as you bavi
been to enjoy so long the repose of peace
Still fewer are they who, laboring for si
many years in eminent public station
still wear a shield not simply untainted bj
reproach, but untarnished even by tin
breath of suspici m.
Providence has been pleased to gran
you length of days in which to enjoy tin
fullness of honor. You are the last, as yoi
aro one of the greatest, of those nobli
chiefs who led our hosts to victory. You
name is set among the brightest tradition
of the republic; your services are writ ii
letters of imnerisliable glory upon oil
country's tablet of honor; and unborn gen
erations, children of these states whosi
union you labored so successfully to pre
serve, will be inspired by your exampli
and thrilled by the story of your geniuu
and courage. It is not within the power of
any man or body of men to honor you
whom the whole nation claims for its
hero; but ttie University of Notre
Dame offers you the highest distinc
tion within its gift in bestowing on you this
year its Ltetare medal. Accept it as a
symbol of the proud appreciation in which
your Catholic fellow-citizens bold your dis
tinguished public services. The Ltetare
medal has been worn only by men and
women whose gonius has ennobled the
arts and sciences, illustrated the church
and enriched the heritage of humanity. It
will be a joy to your fellow-citizens that
you are now enrolled in that noble com
pany which is worthy of you and which you
w ill adorn. For in you are crowned the
virtues of a Christian soldier —the generous
response to duty, the unstinted service of
laborious days and restless nights, the
courage of a martyr and the gentleness of
a hero.
One of the noblest chapters of Catholic
theology is that which teaches the duly of
patriotism and whole-hearted devotion to
Ihe publio weal. Catholics are among the
first to recognize that duty and respond to
it. But whenever a slanderous cry goes up
from the camps of fanaticism—when men
would proclaim the church hostile to lib
erty and false to the principles of American
government, she find her best response and
the strongest vindication in the lives of
men like you.
The general expressed his pleasure at
receiving the medal. Be spoke of tiie
pain it gave him that intelligent and other
wise fair-minded people could be found to
believe the current calumnies against
Catholics, Yet the circumstances of the
times show that such is the case.
The medal is of solid gold, having on its
face the arms of the United States in
enamel, surrounded by a laurel wreath.
The inscription is "Magna eat Veritas et
