ANOTHER FIESTA IN 1897?
The Consensus of Public Opinion
Is Favorable
BOTH PRAISE AND BLAME
The* Saturday Night's Masquerade Gen-
•rally Condemned
City Officials, Merchants and Representative
Citizens Interviewed—Sundry Objec
tions-Injury to Retail Trade
A plebesclte was taken on a small
but representative scale yesterday as to
the advisability of another Fiesta in
1897. the question asked being, "Do you
favor a Fiesta for the year 1897?"
Around the city hall nearly evejry one
was favorable to the repetition and the
permanence of the celebrations, though
many took occasion to condemn the con
cluding masquerade.
Many merchants hesitated to answer
the simple question propounded to them
and not a few refused to go on record
with any opinion at all. While the bal
ance of opinion goes to prove that the
ordinary retail merchant is not directly
benefited by La Fiesta, the majority of
them seem to recognize that as an ex
tensive advertisement of the city it must
ultimately redound to their personal
benefit. Many were timorous in the ex
pression of an adverse opinion from the
belief that popular sentiment was over
whelmingly in favor ot La Fiesta. A
large proportion of retail merchants ad
vocate the abbreviation of the celebra
tion to two or three days, thereby giving
them a chance to pick up the trade of
the visitors at the close of the week.
Most merchants found it was profitable
to shut up Bhop entirely on Saturday,
and would like to Bee the festivities end
ed at least on Friday night. Of thirty
four merchants Interrogated, nineteen
answered in the affirmative, eight in the
negative and seven were doubtful or
deliberative.
A very large number of the gentle
men interviewed took occasion to pro
test against the All Fools' Night fea
ture, one declaring it to be "a senseless
disgrace to a civilized city and neces
sarily demoralizing."
Praises were heard on all sides of the
handsome structure and decoration of
The Herald's arch at the corner of Third
and Broadway, many declaring it to be
by far the most attractive decoration m
the city.
CITY OFFICIALS AND OTHERS.
Col. Walter S. Moore: I believe that
the Fiesta has come to stay, and as a
Southern California institutions it does
more to favorably advertise this section
than any one other circumstance. I
am, however, strongly opposed l to the
rowdy carnival which has in the past
wound up the feast, and that ought, for
the sake of the women and children in
the community to be abolished.
Chief Glass—Whether or not we want
a Fiesta next year? That's a hard ques
tion Under certain conditions I should
say we do, and am in favor of it. It
should not continue more than three
days and restrictions should be put upon
indiscriminate masking. The great
trouble is that a certain class take ad
vantage of the opportunity for hood
lumism and it requires the utmost ef
forts of the police to prevent playful lib
erty from being degraded into license.
Councilman M. P. Snyder: Speaking
as a business man, I am strongly In
favor of an annual Fiesta, but the Sat
urday night carnival of folly ought to
be abolished.
Bailiff Appel—Most decidedly I am not
In favor of another. The present and
past Fiestas were the most immoral and
corrupt exhibitions that could exist.
They give opportunity for unbridled li
cense. We have had too many of them
and I wish to see no more.
City Clerk Charles A. Luckenbach:
The Fiesta is a good thing. Push it
along once every year.
Councilman George Stockwell: If
the next Fiesta can be made as pro
nounced a success as the one Just ended
it will have to be a dandy. I believe in
the show from every standpoint that it
can be discussed.
Mayor Frank Rader Tou can quote
me as f avot ing the Fiesta one year hence
and annually thereafter. I know person
ally of at least thirty people from the
east who remained here for several
weeks to see our show, and about twenty
of whom will be back upon a similar er
rand in 1897.
Councilman Blanchard—As far as I
am concerned, yes. It is a little early
to talk about next year's celebration as
yet, but it is a good thing for the city
and should be continued.
Fire Commissioner Vetter—The Fies
ta was an unquestioned success, finan
cially and otherwise. The management
was in the hands of capable men who
had time to devote to it and who gave,
it without stint. In the hands of such'
men the affair should be placed and
made a perpetual annual festival.
( Walter F. Parker, the mayor's secre
tary: The Fiesta was a pronounced suc
cess. The show should by all means be
repeated next year.
Chief of Detectives Moffitt—l am in
favor of giving the queen permanent
power and turning the city over to her,
with the proviso that her subjects do not
parade every day nor mask every night.
We could not stand that. The Fiesta
was a success and with such a queen
would always be a success.
City Attorney W. E. Dunn: The Fi
esta is worth to the city about one hun
dred times as much as it costs. It should
become a permanent local celebration.
Gen. E. P. Clarke: By all means re
peat next year the success of the Fiesta
just ended.
Superintendent of Schools J. A. Fo
phay: As the head of the city's school
department I am opposed to the Fiesta
because it upsets things with our teach
ers and pupils, whose minds are not upon
their work for weeks prior to the feast.
I have no doubt, however, but that the
celebration is a most excellent thing
for the city as a whole.
WHAT OUR MERCHANTS SAT
T. Billlngton, president of the South
ern California Furniture company-
Yes, most assuredly and emphatically:
it should become a permanent annual
feature and attraction of Los Angeles.
' J. Bickel, 220 South Main street —I be
lieve in Jollifications as well as business.
While the Fiesta does not visibly affect
our retail trade, It wakes everybody up.
Mr. Scrlver of Scriver & Qulnn, 200 and
102 South Main street—By all means,
with the exception of the Saturday
night features. It is a big drawing card
for this country.
Police Clerk Grldley—Tes, it is a good
thing and should be continued. It is
the best advertisement the city ever had
and a source of much enjoyment to all.
ThS only fault I have to find Is that
there was not enough of It.
Police Secretary Cottle—l think the
Fiesta a good thing in some ways, but
It is hard on the police force, otherwise
It Is of great benefit to this city and
section. I favor having another car
nival next year, but dread to anticipate
its coming.
Detective Goodman—ln favor of an
other Fiesta? No, lam not. The one
just past did not give me the proper
opportunities for the use of the Rus
sian tactics.
Detective Hawley—No, by all means,
no. The Fiesta does more harm than
good. It brings to the city criminals of
all classes who rob right and left. They
are also of a hard kind to catch, here
and then next week gone. It would,
in my opinion, be a good thing If we
never had another.
Officer Bhannon—Well, I don't know.
IiOS ANGELES' HERALB: "WEDNESDAY MORNING. APRIL 29, 1896.
exactly, but on Saturday night the
"Point" was a little too crowded lor
comfort.
Morltz Meyberg of the Crystal Palace
—We ought to have It every year. It Is
a natural advertisement all over the
country. The merchants themselves
reap no benefit but the city undoubted
ly will in time.
C. Li. Hanson of Ontario—Yes. It has
been the means of inducing a large num
ber of people to remain in Southern
California who would otherwise have
hurried home.
John A. Hunter, manager Fixen &
Co. —Under two conditions, yes. First,
that if the Fiesta is conducted for th«
good of Los Angeles, all visitors should
enjoy it free of all charges, so far as
seeing the parade, fireworks, etc., goes.
Secondly, that it should begin on Tues
day and end on Friday night sharp, to
give the outsiders a chance to do their
purchasing Saturday.
Mr. Reynold! of Harper & Reynolds,
154 North Main street—Not enough good
to counterbalance the expense and det
riment done to the trade.
C. Ducommun, 302 North Main street —
It affects business adversely but 1 think
it a good drawing card.
Samuel Meyer, 309 North Main street
—Most decidedly; always in favor of it.
J. V. Wachtel, cashier of the Main
Street Savings bank—lt might be better
to postpone it for a year. It has been a
grand success, but I'm afraid the public
may tire of it if given too often. Per
sonally I am in favor of it.
Cohn Bros, of Temple block—We are
both strongly in favor of it.
Gen. C. F. A. Last—Most assuredly.
It has been a grand success and we shall
continue to improve.
Gustav Brose of the Germain Fruit
company—Certainly; it helps the town
and puts a lot of money in circulation.
Albert Cohn, 219 South Main street—
I don't care; let 'em go ahead. For my
part they can havea Fiesta every day.
J. J. ltodriguez of Rodriguez. Howard
*• Co.—No, sir; lam not. It paralyzes
our business for the time being.
William Pridham, superintendent of
the v\ells-Fargo company—Entirely ■ it
means a healthy relaxation for the peo
ple and an opportunity to display their
talent in a decorative line.
William Gibson, 214 West Third street
—I don t want to interfere. I said "no"
in plain English last year and am not
afraid to say it again.
William F. Marshall of the California
Hardware company—No; I don't ap
prove of it.
H. F. Vollmer—Although of no special
benefit to ourselves, we think it a good
thing for the community at large—the
city itself.
z - L - Parmelee— While there is no
doubt it puts a large amount of money
in circulation, It is a question to my
mind whether we get as much back
again as we pay out.
J. K. Urmston, manager of the Lon
don and Lancashire Fire Insurance
company—Thoroughly in favor of It.
C. E. Day—l would rather express no
opinion at present.
Mr. Cass of Cass, Smurr & Co.—No; I
think it demoralizes not only the busi
ness of the community, but of the coun
try as well.
L. M. Glider of Grider & Dow—We ex
pect to get our benefits from now right
along. It is a success that should be re
peated.
Nat Slegel—ln favor of it all the time.
W. C. Bluett of Mullen, Bluett & Co.—
Most decidedly. It was a benefit to our
business and I want to see it every year
C. C. Gibbons of J. M. Hale & Co.—
Although of no direct benefit to our line
of business, I believe it a good adver
tisement for the city, the county and the
state.
V. H. Gowen of Gowen, Eberle & Co.—
Yes.
H. M. Sale, 220 South Spring street—
I don't like to appear selfish In the mat
ter. It does us no good personally. If it
can be proven it does any good as an ad
vertisement for the city, I would be In
favor of it. I am decidedly ppposed to
the masking business.
John F. Humphries, 145 South Broad
way—ln the present depressed condi
tion of the essential industries that
build up this county, I think that if
the same amount of energy and money
were expended to encourage such in
dustries it would do more good than a
Fiesta, notwithstanding the temporary
stimulant.
Col. J. C. Marble, president of the Na
tional Bank of California—l am in favor
of flower and fruit expositions, but have
no sympathy with all fools' night and
such features.
J. T. Sheward—Very much so, and I
believe it should be of annual occur
rence.
M. C. Adler of the London Clothing
company—Most decidedly.
L. Jacoby of Jacoby Bros.—l think It
does the country a great deal of good,
but I am in favor of abbreviating it to
two days.
John Chanslor of Anderson & Chans
lor—No; lam not. If the property own
ers put up the money It might be differ
ent. Besides, I think the people are get
ting tired of it.
J. Frankenfield, president of the Cali
fornia bank—Too early to express an
opinion.
John H. Coxe—Yes.
Hiles & Sogno of the City of London
furnishing house—No. For the three
years it has been held on each occasion
it has been the worst week for our busi
ness.
Gen. Johnson of the Los Angeles Fur
niture company—l don't think I am.
The all fools' night should certainly be
abolished.
Simon Maler—l think it too soon to ex
press an opinion, but the last Fiesta
was a great success. «
Wm. B. Dunning of "The Hub"—Any
decrease of trade—although we person
ally have no reason to complain—may
be attributed to the weather. Summer
goods were not in demand, owing to
the lateness of the season. I believe the
Fiesta advertises the town, helps the
railroads, and generally puts money into
circulation.
Judge L. A. Groff—lt is a problem for
the railroads, the street-car companies,
the hotel and lodging house keepers to
decide.
Henry Darling of .Darling & Pratt—
Yes; it is a very good thing, provided it
can be gotten up in the very best way
and still further improved.
H. W. Whitmarsh, manager of the
Boston dry goods store—Yes; it was a
success this year, and should be contin
ued. Although it injures trade during
the week, Indirect benefits will accrue.
F. H. Avery of the Avery-Staub Shoe
company—l most emphatically am.
N. B. Blackstone—Not for a whole
week; but If the money that is raised
were applied to a two-days' festival, it
would do the town more good.
Under Sheriff Clements—l think we
should celebrate our national' holidays
rather than special occasions, and for
that reason I think we should have a
rest on Fiestas.
Sheriff we should
have a Fiesta next year, but I think
there should be proper restrictions as
to masking. I do not approve of the last
night's performances.
Supervisor Hanley—Properly conduct
ed, I certainly favor a Fiesta next year.
I do not think the scenes of the last
night should ever be repeated. Let us
have a procession of maskers, headed
by a band, but not the indiscriminate
masking as was witnessed on the last
night of the Fiesta.
Deputy County Clerk Sherman Smith
—Let us have a Fiesta, but let it be held
under proper restrictions as to mask
ing.

Royal
PURE
MR GISH WAS FAVORABLE
He Asked That Time on City
Taxes Be Extended
THERE IS INDIGNATION
Police Officers Pay a Big Price for Mu
sical Enjoyment
Yesterday With the Board of Police Commis
aloners-Flnal Route of the Wllahire
Electric Franchise—Fire Board
Why the council, by a vote, of 7 to 2,
on Monday refused to extend the time
in which the last half of the city's taxes
were to become delinquent is as much
of a mystery as ever, and the comments
upon the subject are anything but fa
vorable where the matter was yesterday
discussed.
John H. Gish, the license collector, had
personally requested that a ten or fif
teen day extension be granted, his offic
ial position beiws such as to lender Ms
opinion in the matter of some value. The
majority of the finance committee, con
sisting of Counoilmen Stockwell and
Blanchard, however, refused to recom
mend that this be done, although Coun
cilman M. P. Snyder, the other member
of the committee, worked hard from
Saturday morning until Monday in his
effort for at ieast ten days of grace. The
motion to adopt the majority report op
posing the extension was made by Coun
cilman Thomas Savage.
Tax Collector Gish figures It out that
about $23,000 is. in round numbers, de
linquent, out of the total $240,000, which
is the aggregate of the taxes of 1895-96.
Twenty-five thousand dollars was col
lected in on Saturday last. $25,000 on
Monday and about $10,000 was received
yesterday morning through the mails.
The delinquent property will not be ad
vertised for thirty days, by which time
Gish expects to have collected at least
$10,0ii?i more.
Had it not been offirally given out
that the city hall would be closed for
business on every afternoon from
Wednesday to Saturday of last week,
nearly the whole amount due might
probably by this time be in the city
treasury.
SOME COSTLY* MUSIC
The people of the Highland district
recently annexed to the city have filed
with the police board the following:
We, the underslgnel citizens of the
First ward and of the new district of
said ward respectfuly call to your atten
tion the fact that the residents of such
new district and a great part of the
First ward are entirely without police
protection and are at the mercy of
tramps, chicken thieves and house
breakers, and therefore respectfully pe
tition you to give us that protection to
which we are justly entitled as tax pay
ers of the city of Los Angeles.
We furthermore petition you to ap
point as a regular officer on the mounted
police force C. R. Stevens, who is a cit
izen of said new district and a man in
every respect worthy and well qualified
for ihe position. We respectfully re
quest that this matter be considered one
of importance.
The above, was filed pending the avail
ability of the funds necessary to put
the request contained Into execution.
Conrad Winter at Jefferson street and
Central avenue and C. Hickson at 121
East First street were each granted a
saloon license, the applications of Vic
tor Dol at 614 South Broadway, Adam J.
Kappes at Thirty-ninth and Main and
J. A. Grow at 138 North Main street
being referred to the detective depart
ment for investigation.
The application of George W. Barber
as a special and J. R. Miller as a reg
ular officer were respectively referred
to the chief and filed.
Mounted Officers J. A. Ditewlg and G.
W. Woodward, who were two weeks ago
suspended for leaving their posts to
practice at vocal selections In a lodg
ing house on Main street, were before
the board to have their offense inquired
into. Both men acknowledged the truth
ot the charges against themselves and
threw themselves upon the mercy of the
board. It developed during the inquiry
that there were no women present dur
ing the soiree, as had been intimated
by Sergeant Jeffries when he brought
the men up on the carpet. Commis
sioner Cook was in favor of reinstating
both culprits on account of their pre
vious good records. Commissioners
Wirsching and Long on the other hand
were in favor of a $20 fine, which with
the nine days the men have already
lost makes their dereliction cost the
two men $47 each, the latter punishment
being finally determined upon.
Henry C. Roberts, an Azusa farmer,
had a sworn complaint before the board
alleging that last Friday evening ho
was pushed and otherwise forcibly as
saulted by an officer who wore star No.
88. He alleges that he was at the time
standing in front of a cigar stand on
Main street near First, and was in no
one's way. The matter was referred to
the chief for inquiry.
GLASS MAY BOSS THE JOB
The effort of Councilman M. P. Snyder
to have the oil inspector placed under
the control of the chief of police will
probably by Monday next be realized.
The following report upon the matter
has been agreed upon and was to have
been reported at the last meeting of the
council:
Your sewer committee beg leave to
report, in the matter of oil inspector,
which matter was referred to them at
a previous meeting of your honorable
body, that they have made a personal
tour of inspection of the oil region and
find that the same is kept in a reasona
bly good condition, and about as good as
could be expected under the existing cir
cumstances.
That we find upon Inquiry among the
residents of that vicinity that much of
the disturbance and nuisance heretofore
complained of has been remedied, and
apparently the residents of the neigh
borhood are satisfied with the condition
of things. We, however, believe that
the inspector in this district should be
ordered to make stated reports and be
a
under the direction of some city officer;
we therefore recommend that the In
spector be placed under the direction
and control of the chief of police, and be
instructed to report to him at such times
and in such manner as he may direct.
The above is not satisfactory to
Snyder and was not presented, the Sec
ond ward councilman being In favor of
repealing entirely the ordinance creat
ing the office of oil Inspector, and simply
adding one man to the present police
force for patrol duty in the oil district.
ROUTE OF THE ROAD
The Wllshlre franchise for the pro
posed new electric line to and from the
vicinity of Westlake park, as it finally
passed the council, traverses the follow
ing route: Commencing at Seventh
street at the east line of Lake, running
west along Seventh to Rampart street,
thence north on Rampart to Sixth street,
thenci east on Sixth to the east line of
Alvarado street; also commencing on
Lake street, at the south line of Ninth,
thence north on Lake to Seventh street,
with a switch on Seventh street on
block B of the Wllshlre Boulevard tract.
The Los Angeles Railway company Is
said to be behind the proposed new road,
