WILL MAKE A TEST CASE Can Fire Hydrants Be Used for Street Sprinkling? A SUIT BY THE WATER CO. To Have This Important Question Settled by the Courts Two More Libel Suit, Filed by Col. Blanton Duncan—The Scott Blectrle Fran, chlse Sustained The Los Angeles City Water company has at last concluded to test In the courts the right of the city to use the fire hydrants for the purpose of filling the street-sprinkling wagons, a matter which has been talked of more or less for several years past. The Initiatory step was taken by the water company yesterday by the filing of a suit against t'apt. John Cross, who lias the street •prinkling contract, and the city of Los Angeles, asking for $tiOun damages, and further that the defendants be forever enjoined from making any use of tic fire hydrants except for the protection of the citizens and their property against fire and for extinguishing tires that may occur in the city. The plaintiff sets forth its agreement or Fase made W illi the city on the 20th of July, 1868, under the terms of which It was to erect and keep in repair fire hydrants and furnish water for the same free of charge, as well as for the public municipal institutions. It is c laimed that the terms of the contract have been faithfully carried out. and that, as the city has grown they have put in the hy drants as required, until there are now more than 400 in service. Plaintiff fur ther alleges that the defendant John Cross, at the instigation of the city, is now and bar, for more than a year past been using these fire hydrants for sprink ling purposes, which use is vastly in ex cess of all the uses of the hydrants for tire purposes, aid increased the cost to | plaintiff of keeping the same in repair i to more than $2"(io per annum. The > plaintiff alleges, further, thrt the hy drants are gn atly damaged by their use for sprinkling purposes, for all of which damages and a permanent injunction is asked. THAT ELECTRIC FRANCHISE Certiorari Not the Way tv knock Out the Bid of S. F. icoit In the case of Spruance vs. The City Council of Los Angeles, .1 udge Shaw yes terday gave an opinion sustaining the demurrer to the complaint and dismiss ing the proceedings. This was a suit to annul the action of the council in miaul ing the franchise to Scott, who bid i>l"7 and agreed to light tie- city hall, as against Spruance, who hid $506 cash, on the ground that the latter was the high est bidder, the council having no light to consider anything but cash in award ing bids. Jtiuge Shaw, in his decision, holds that, while the supreme couit lias given an opinion holding that the coun cil can only consider cash bids, that certiorari is not the proper remedy. Fol lowing is the opinion: This is a proceeding by way of certio rari to review and annul the action of the city council of Los Angeles in grant ing a franchise to one L. F. Scott to erect poles and run wires thereon along the streets of the city for the purpose of supplying electricity to the Inhabitants. The franchise was granted after ad vertising the sane under the act of March 23, 181*3 (Stats. 1893, 288), which provides that such franchises must be awarded to the highest bidder alter due notice of the time of making the award. At the time fixed in this instance a num ber of bids were received, and among others a bid by I-. F. Scott, offering to give $107 and furnish electric light-, for the city hall during the life of the fran chise, and a bid by Spruance, tin- peti tioner, offering to give $.".06. The coun cil awarded the franchise to Scott and pased the ordinance granting it ac cordingly. In the case of Thompson vs. Board of Supervisors ill Cal. Dec. p. Ill), decided March 25,1590. it was held by tin- sup: erne court that nothing but cash bide can be taken or considered in a procei ding to grant a franchise, a 1 that tin- franchise must be awarded to the bidder who of fers the highest price in money and with- | out conditions. Under the principles thus decided it is clear that tin- bid of Spruance was the highest legal bid and that the franchise should have been awarded to him. even if the other one would manifestly prove more valuable to the city. Hut it does lot follow that certiorari is the proper remedy to cor rect this error, if. Indeed, the petitioner himself now has any n in- dy at all. A writ of review or certiorari, can be granted only when an Inferior board, of ficer, or trlbui al. exercising judicial functions, exceeds its Jurisdiction, and there iB no appeal, or other adequate remedy c<'. I. 1.. section 1068). All three conditions must concur; that is. there must lie an exercise of Judicial functions, an act beyond the Jurisdiction, and an absence of the right of appeal, or other yemc-dy, or the writ will not lie. The granting of a franchise is mani festly not a judicial act. It is tic- ex ercise of a part of tic legislative powers of the state which in this particular In stance was delegated to the municipal I governme nt of the city of Dos Angeles. But It is contended on behalf of the petitioner that although the granting of the franchise may he a legislative act. yet the council must act judicially in awarding the same to highi st bidder be fore the ordinance granting it is passed, because In so doing it must determine which was the highest bid, thereby exer cising a discretion which was judicial in its character. The argument on this proposition is based entirely on the as sumption that tin' council had .a legal right to consider tic- vain.- of the offer to light the city hall as a pai t of thi bid of Scott, and if i! decldi d Unit it was ol more value than tin- offer of Spruance then it had the right to award the con tract as it did. This premise Is a false one. In the case above cited Ihe supreme court decided that tin- council had not such right or power. In order to per mit the action to be reviewed by cer tlorari the board or tribunal must not only be doing some act judicial in it character but it must have a lawful right to act judicially. Tie- case therefore | stands in the same light as if the offei to light the city hall had not been met - tinned In the bid. and the council had simply failed to give the- franchise to the highest bidder. No exercise of discre tion Is required o determine that $506 Is more than $107. it is a mere mutter ol mathematics, a question which proves itself and Is clerical and ministerial in character and not judicial. The case of Townsend vs. Copeland (56 Cal. lil.".) seen,- to be precisely in point in all respects. In that ease the board of supervisor-: had advertise d for bids to do the county printing. The two bids had been received, one for $L'so and one for 5 cents. The hoard decided that the latter "was cot a bid and let the contract to the other bidder. A pro ceeding was begun to annul this action by a writ of certiorari, and in regard to that proceeding tin- < ourt sayi "The hoard. In determlnlg to whom the contract should be awarded, waa absolutely obliged toawardthi tract to the lowest bidder, or it had a right to exercise Its discretion in tin- matter. 1'" It was obliged to give the contract to the lowest bidder it follows thai there tvai nothing in the power which was Judicial In its nature, but it was purely minis terial. If, on tic other hand, the board possessed a discretionary power in the premises, the most that can be said against Its action is that it was erron eous and not an act In excess of its Jur isdiction. In neither case is certiorari the proper remedy." The supreme court has decided in Thompson vs. Board, above cited, that the council was absolutely obliged to award this franchise to the highest bid der, to the person w ho offered the high est price In money, and that conditional bids or bids offering things other than money could not be considered. There fore the council had power in this mat ter to act in a ministerial capacity only. Certiorari Is not the proper remedy for the correction of such errors. The conclusion necessarily follows that the facts set forth in the petition are not sufficient to ustlfy the granting of the relief prayed for. The defend ant's demurrer to the petition should be sustained and the proceedings dis missed. It wHlbe so ordered. TWO MORE LIBEL SUITS Col. Blanton Duncan Wants $100,000 ot tbe Associated Press' Money Colonel Blanton Duncan yesterday ln -1 stituted a libel suit against the Asso ! ciated Press for $100,000 damages.

I The companies asserted that Duncan i had perjured himself in statements 1 made- to tic interstate commerce com mission.''

Duncan's claim was that the railroad I had Injured his character by working him into a case before the Interstate commerce commission." Plaintiff al leges that this telegram is also false and defamatory, for the reason that he never instituted a libel suit against the com pany named, and that it was understood by J. E. Young. T. E. Messmore and others to mean, among other things, that plaintiff had committed perjury be fore the interstate railroad commission. For this he also asks $00,000 damages.

The finance committee yesterday agreed to recommend that the sum of $.;:iia be transferred from the new water fund to the street lighting fund, and that the city auditor and city treasurer be so instructed. Recommend the petition from Grace M. E. church be referred to the city as sessor to report to this committee as to the statements therein contained. In the matter of the petition from A. Jacoby, asking that a certain lien re corded in volume 2 of city liens at page 299, tin- same being against lot 13 of the Botlller tract, be cancelled. It appears that this lien is on account of tin-widen ing of Ninth street, and that on the 30th day of March. 1891, the council paid the petitioner 50 per cent of the amount of money actually due him on account of damages caused to his property over and above all claims due the city in full sett lenient of this entire matter so far as In- and the property owned by him was concern* d. In some way this cancella tion of liens was marked against all of tin- property except lot 13 of the Botlller tract, and your committee believes that it was the intention to cancel said lien at that time, and that the cancellation of tile same is but a compliance with the agreement and settlement made witli the petitioner on March 30th. 1891. We there fore recommend that the city clerk be Instructed to mark said assessment against lot 13 of the Botlller tract, to be found in volume 2 of city liens at page 299. cancelled and redeemed of record. Recommend that the petition fromW. B. Robb be referred to the city attorney. The petitioner wants certain money for failing to enter into a school building contract returned. Ri commend that the city treasurer be instructed to return to W. H. Workman the amount of $600 deposited as a guar antee thai he would properly fill the lots and grade the street in front of the Bchi ol Bite recently sold by him to the city on Boyle Heights, Mr. Workman having conformed with all of the re quirements for which this money was deposited as a guarantee. SELLING DEAD STt'FF. The supply committee yesterday filed the following: Your supply committee beg leave to report that liiere are now in the corpor ation yard a number of wagons formerly used by the street department, and in the basement of the city liail a number of harnesses used by this department, which are no lunger needed by the city, and which are deteriorating every day. Your committee believes that these wagons and this harness should be dis posed of, and therefore recommend that the assistant chief of the fire depart ment be instructed and authorized to dispose of the same at private sale at such prices as he believes the same to be worth. OPENING TRINITY STREET. The opening of Trinity street at Twentieth has again become a live is sue. The following was yesterday filed with the council: Whereas, It has come to our knowl edge that the contractor who has the contract for curbing and sldewalking Kast Twenty-first street in said city is, by the consent of the street superin tendent and city engineer, of said city, about to sidewalk and curb both sides of said Bast Twenty-first street, at the intersection of Trinity street, thus prac tically closing said Trinity street as a public thoroughfare, and Whereas, Sal 1 Trinity Is a public Btreet, that is and for several years has been used extensively by the undersign ed residents and property-owners In its vicinity, as well as by other residents, and by the public at large, and Whereas, The practical closing of Trinity street by its curbing and side walking across the intersection of the same- with East Twenty-first street, as aforesaid, will result in great hardship to your petitioners, and the other resi dents and property-owners in the vicin ity thereof, as well as greatly incon veniencing the general public. We then fore petition you to take such steps as may be necessary to pre vent tin- practical closing of Trinity street by the sldewalking and curbing of East Twenty-first street, as afore said. CITY HALL FLOTSAM. The . oi gn nation of the Central M.
