THE POLICE SHAKE=UP It Is All the Talk in Mu nicipal Circles RUMORS OF MORE CHANGES COMMISSIONER WYMAN MAY RESIGN General Forman Takes His Removal Very Philosophically—Notes and Gossip But little else other than the sum mary removal of General Charles For man as a member of the board of po lice commissioners by the council was talked of about the city hall yesterday. The consensus of opinion was that Gen eral Forman had made a conscientious and efficient official, and while his ac tions at times may have appeared ar bitrary, his motives were good, and he was actuated by an honest desire to Increase the efficiency of the force As to the manner of his remove! there was but one opinion, and that was that It was an outrage, especially as the fiimsv charge ngainst him that he woe a stockholder in a street car line, was absolutely without the slightest foun dation in fact, General Forman neither owning stock or being a director In any such company. As for General Forman himself, In takes thy matter very philosophically. He Rays thai he did not seek the office, but one: having accepted it, he tried to do his duty, and if the council saw fit to remove him for doing what he thought was right, and which even those opposed to him have to concede was in the interest of elevating the standard of the department, he could certainly stand it if the couneilmen could, and he was willing to leave his case in the hands of his fellow citizens. Personally, he could honestly Pay he was glad to get out of Ihe whole business, as. under the circumstances, his position was not a pleasant ono, and he thought that he could retire to private life with the re- ' spert and confidence of the taxpayers and property owners. Early in the forenoon it was rumored that Commissioner Wyman. who has always acted with General Forman or. the board, would tender his resignation before the next meeting of the council. It was stated about the hall that that gentleman had been marked for slaugh ter, and While none of the couneilmen who voted for the removal of General Forman would admit that such was the case, tho statement was very generally believed. The failure of Mr. Wyman to appear at the meeting of the board, was taken as confirming, at least to a certain extent, the rumor of tho in tended resignation. The couneilmen who look part in the coup d'etat, with the single exception of Mr. Hutchison were not inclined to discuss the matter. The member from the Eighth ward, however, who led the movement, was very outspoken in his views. He stated plainly that he thought the beet Inte - '1- of the po lice department demo.-.. 1 c the immedi ate removal of General Forman, and he had acted accordingly. He had no apologies to make for his action in the matter. Now that a start had been mane. Mr. Hutchison said that other c hanges would follow. There were men on the force who should be removed for cause, and he thought they would be as soon as they could be reached The first who would be likely to go are Sergeant Smith and Detective Goodman. There was also much dis satisfaction with Sergeant Jeffries and Clerk Bean. These would probably be attended to and then an effort would be made to weed out a number of others Mr. Hutchison intimated that he had bun giving much attention to the police department, and had for tified himself with considerable valua ble information. As to how far the pro posed reorganization would go. Mr. Hutchison declined to say. but he in timated that It might even extend to the head of the department in the event of certain contingencies. Alread the fight for the place mad~ vacant by General Forman's removal Is on In full blast, and there are half a dozen or more candidates out working for the position. It is- generally con ceded, as stated yesterday, that Coun cilman Blanchard is the most potent factor in naming the man. and if this is the case the influence of Coroner Campbell and George Arnold will cut a big figure. It was stated that t x- Councilman Samuel Roes of the Ninth ward was not beyond the range of pos ribllitlei, as hie appointment would heal certain breaches ln the Boyle H' Ights machine. Mr. Rees was elect ed to th* council as a Republican, but at the last election affiliated with the populists and was the union candidate for his old position. Ex-Police Commis sioner Long of the Fi urth ward, who was als«j the Democratic candidate for councilman at the- last election, is in the Held, as is also Charley Baker of the Fifth ward. It is also stated that the Eighth ward has a condidate, and Councilman Grider has a man ready ir. case of deadlock—which Is not likely. It is believed that matters will be in such shape today that it will b,- possible to get a lino on the successful candidate. It is the general opinion, however, on all sides that the commission, as It vrili be constituted, will simply carry out the wishes of the council, unci that the policy will be dictated directly by that body. Those ln a position to know say that this being the case, a more "liberal" policy will bo the order of things, so far as the administration of police mat ters is concerned. POLIC3 COMMISSION Complaint Agriinst an Officer—Saloon Business An air of pervaded the meetin;; af the board of police commissioners y s terday morning. Only three membe.r. were present, the chair occupied by Commissioner Wyman next tei that oi Genera! Forman being-also vacant. Tht usual lengthy executive conference was dispensed with, and the commission got down to business with considerab!-. promptitude, routine matters being transacted with neatness and dispatch. Robert Mosbacher was granted the transfer of the saloon license for No. I6i I North Los Angeles street, now In the name of Henry J. A. Stuhr, on the favor able report of the chief. W. R. Penlar.d was elected a special officer to serve without pay from the city at the Emporium on Third street. Detective A. J. Bradish was granted twenty days' leave of absence with per mission to leave the city. A lengthy communication was real from Messrs. Hanna & Davis, as attor neys for the wife of Officer Matuskiewiz, asking that the officer be compelled to obey the orders of the board and pro vide for his four minor children, and that in the event of his failure so to do that he be dismissed from the force. The communication stated that for over tv\ o months Matuskiewiz had failed to pro vide for his family, and not only had refused to give money for that purpose but had Instructed tradesmen not to give her any more credit. As a result, the unfortunate woman and her children are now living on the charity of friends. Chief Glass said that he had notified Matuskiewiz of the orders of the board, but he could not say that they had been carried out. Mrs. Matuskiewiz had on one occasion come to the police station and offered to turn the children over to him, but he had declined to assume the i responsibility. i The case was taken under advisement j without debate. A communication was read from the 'city attorney, asking the commissioners Ito take some action for or against the ! proposed kite-flying ordinance, which j communication, with the draft of th,? 'ordinance, was referred to the council without recommendation. I A bid was received from the Tallyho . stables for the keep of the police depart i metnt horses at $15 per mor.th each. The ibid was liied pending contemplated changes. Julius C. Behnko sent in a communica tion, asking the commission to require all vehicles to carry numbers In plain sight and previously registered. This IB toi the benefit of Identification in cas? of accident, and one special case was in stanced to show how an estimable citi zen had been run down and seriously in jured, while the offender escaped, as there was no means of identifying him The matter was referred to the city council. The application of Jesse Avise for the transfer of the saloon license for No. 402 East Fifth street, now in the name of O. A. Lindsay, was referred to the chief for investigation, as was also the applica tion of J. tf. Paulin for a liquor license for the Mount Pleasant hotel, at the corner of First street and Boyle avenue. Mr. Paulin desires to put In a sideboard at his hotel for the convenience of his patrons. W. Walkfr called the attention of the commission to a violation of the ordi nance prohibiting bicyclists from usint; the sidewalks in the vicinity of the Baker Iron works on Buena Vista street. Re ferred to the chief to enforce the ordi nance. Silas Hart asked permission to stand his coupe in front of 213 South Spring street. Referred to the chief. George S. Grider Eer.t in a like appli cation for permission to stand his haci; in front of 114 South Spring street. Re ferred to the chief. Charles Brooks, the expressman whose permit was revoked by the board some days ago, appeared and asked that the same be renewed for his old stand on Third street near Broadway in front of the drug store. This is the case which was called to the attention of the board by Genera! Forman. who stated that the expressman habitually violated the fifty foot rule, and besides possessed a very vicious horse, with a propensity for snapping at people as they passed. Brooks' permit was revoked, and as he continued to stand at the corner, he was arrested and spent one night in the city prison. In answer to questions by thr commissioners. Brooks stated that he had never heard of his horse atcuaily biting anyone, though he admitted thtfL the animal had an ugly habit of laying back his ears ar.d starting toward any one who approached him, which was cal culated to frighten nervous people. On his promise to obey the ordinance and to keep strictly within the fifty-foot limit, Brooks was again granted a per mit, and left the room correspondingly happy. The application of R. C. Harris for ap pointment as a regular policeman was filed. A number of affidavits to the effect that Officer Bales, who for some months has been on the pension list as a result of partial blindness, was unfit as yet to do police duty, and further that the said Hates had always led a correct life dur ing the time he has been on such pension fund, were read and filed, after which the commission adjourned. Wilshire Boulevard The Messrs. Wilshire have filed a peti tion to the cltjr council asking that Wil shire boulevard be accepted and main tained as a public thoroughfare. A num ber of conditions are attached, among them one that no street railway fran chise of any sort or condition s-hal! ever be granted over the street. Then, too. It Is provided that no houe-e or houses s-hail ever be moved through or across the street, ar.d it is further provided that no wagons, v. hides, carts, or other public conveyances- shall use the s>aid street, with the exception of such wag- OtlS as may be engaged in delivering goods or merchandise to residents on th-. street. TheEe are about all or the con ditions attached to the gift, the gentle man desiring to donate- the Ctreet to the city. In Demand City Treasurer Hartwell says there is a brisk demand for Information about '.he refunding bonds from Intending bid ders, and that many local capitalists'are figuring on putting In bids. One enthus iastic local banker thinks htat the city will get at the very leas-t $27,000 premium. All of which speaks- very highly for the credit of the city, when it Is considered that the bonds draw but i% per cent interest. The Water Supply The water supply committee, together with the city engineer, met yesterday with the water company tofir.d out what progress was being-mad. :n getting together the figures and dafi for pre sentation to the council on Mon day. Nothing was given out for publi cation, though It was stated that the Hgures would be ready In time.

The Blessing of Strong Nerves Is recoverable not by the use of mineral sedatives.but by a recourse to effectual tor> la treatment. Opiates and the like should only be used as auxiliaries and then as sparingly as possible. Vigorous nerves are quiet on.es, and the most direct Way to render them so is to reinforce the vital energies. That sterling Invigorant. Hos tetter's Stomach Bitters, will be found all sufficient for this purpose, since it entirely removes Impediments to thorough diges tion and assimilation of food, so that the body is insured its due amount of nour ishment, and consequently of stamina. Rheumatic tendencies and affections of the kidneys and bladder are also counter acted by the Bitters, which is besides a thorough medicinal stimulant, Infinitely purer than the raw excitants of commerce, which react injuriously upon the nervous system.
