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.

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.

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

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;

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.

tion to the cltjr council asking that Wil
shire boulevard be accepted and main

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.

with the city engineer, met yesterday
with the water company

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Success of the Citrus Tariff Commit
tee—Display Notes
The secretary of the Chamber of Com
merce and members of the tariff com
mittee feit highly elated yesterday at
the news contained in two telegrams
received form Washing>tor., which read
as follows: "Tariff on citrus fruits fixed
by committee at one cent per pound,"
signed Stephen M. White.
"Citrus Tariff Committee: By your
earnest work and our persistent efforts
sub-committee report one cent on citrus
fruits, two cents on Zante currants,''
signed M. J. Daniels.
These telegrams are the result of per
sistent effort of the citrus tariff commit
tee which began last winter with a cit
rus growers convention held at the sug
gestion of the chamber of commerce.
The outcome of that meeting was the
organization of the above-named asso
ciation.
The work has been carried on system
atically and effectively, as the result
show©, through the chamber of com
merce. Thousands of circulars and me
morials have been sent out to eastern
people, to use in Influencing legislation
through their represantatives and to
present to them the importance of this
measure to the citizens of this state.
The citrus growers raised a fund by vol
untary taxation to send representatives
to Washington In the Interact of this
measure, com posed of the following
gentlemen: M. J. Daniels, Riverside;
11. K. Snow. Tnstin; B. F. Allen. Covins
and ex-congr-ssman James McLachlan.
Senators While and Perkins have
worked indefatlgr.h'y for the success of
the tariff that means so much to the
citrus growers and Indirectly to all the
other Interests of California.
The exhibit roosj has received the fol
lowing additions this week: Wild oats,
seven feet high. J. L. Barker, City; bran
ches of almonds ftatr) trees three years
old and oar.algre from the Little Hock
district; roses and sweet peas from Mrs.
Gillette. Boyle Heights; specimens of
antimony assaying twenty dollar© and
sixty cents goid and sixty cents sliver
to the ton. from the O'Brlan district in
Kern county; fine clusters of China man
darin oranges from C. H. Richardson,
Pasadena; carnation© and sweet peas,
Mr. E. Walker, City. ,
An effective addition to the decorations
of the room was made by the donation
of the big fishes that decorated the Kelp
float in the Fiesta parade.
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
