LOS ANGELES COUNTY
PASADENA, May 17.—(Regular Corre
spondence.) As was to bo expected, In view
'of all the circumstances, the city council
j did not formally accept the "offer" of the
| P. and L. A. Electric railway company at
' Its session today, although It can be stated
I as a known fact that It has been already
| accepted informally. However, that does
not necessarily mean that It will ever go
Into effect, and in fact there are very good
reasons for believing that It will never be
saddled upon this community. Ail the
cards have not yet been played In the
game which Is to settle the future pros
perity ot Pasadena, and there are some
surprises still in store for those who ex
pect to see the P. and L, A. company suc
ceed in Its undertaking. If the proposition
Is accepted it will get into the courts, as
stated some time ago, but it may never
reach the stage of formal acceptance. At
any rate, It Is safe to say it will never stop
there, and that the city of Pasadena will
not be lighted by the P. and t,. A. company
In return for a monopoly of our streets.
The board of trustees are men of too good
sense to lose such an opportunity as Is
likely to be presented to them soon, be
side which the "offer" of the P. and L. A.
company dwindles Into Insignificance,
when all the circumstances are taken into
account. Many of the spectators at the
council meeting this afternoon expressed
wonder that the P. and L. A. company. In
the formal offer which they now make to
the council have accepted the very condi
tion to which they so strenuously objected
before, and owing to which it was given
out that "the council and the electric com
pany were miles apart" and could not come
to any terms. That was about ten days
ago, but the situation has changed very
materially since then, and the P and L. A.
company has finally waked up to the fact
that notwithstanding its adroit move In
securing control of the Pasadena electric
lighting plant it is still as far from having
a monopoly on the "offer" busness as it is
from securing the much-coveted monopoly
of the streets. Hence Its sudden willing
ness to concede the point of former conten
tion, after It had already been allowed by
Tbe trustees. This was In reference to
putting up the slock of the road as a guar
antee that the company would fulfill Its
obligation to the city. As soon as the coun
cil had listened to the reading of the for
mal offer of the company, with which the
readers of The Herald are already familiar,
A. R. Metcalfe, the company's attorney,
stated that they were ready to place th-3
stock of the road In the hands of any trus
tee the council might appoint as a guar
anty of the faithful performance of the
obligations to be entered Into. Trustee
Reynolds at once moved that the proposi
tion be referred to the city attorney, to be
reported upon at the next meeting. Trus
tee Washburn interposed with "I thought
it was In shape to be acted upon today,"
while President Hartwell said he would
prefer to leave It for one week. He was
willing to accept the offer, he said, but
would rather have it referred to the city
attorney so that he could examine It first.
Trustee Hamilton moved to accept it at
once. Finally the original motion was
adopted and the matter referred to the
city attorney, to be reported upon one
week from today. Dr. G. Roscoe Thomas
asked leave to address the board for a few
minutes, and, after presenting an addi
tional petition asking for the Terminal
franchise, containing the names of 174 cit
izens who had not had a chance to sign
the other one—making over 1600 names In
all—he proceeded to say that he had just
returned from an outing in the mountains,
' and the first thing upon his return saw the
article in The Herald of a few days ago
wherein one of the trustees is quoted as
saying that there were whole pages of the
petition In the same handwriting and that
there were the names of men, women and
children who lived outside the city on the
list. He said If he had misquoted anybody
he wished to be corrected, but no correc
tion was forthcoming, so he proceeded. Dr.
Thomas then went on to say that he did
not doubt but that there might be a very
few names on the petition which did not
belong there, but as he would himself like
to ascertain just what proportion of the
actual voters favored fair play In this
matter, he would make a proposition to
the council himself, which was tirls: If
they would call an election on the matter
and It did out turn out that two out of
every three voters In Pasadena favored the
Terminal being allowed to come In he
would foot the whole bill of expense for the
election, and as guarantee would furnish
a /rood a nd sufficient bond, as the trustees
might determine. It Is needless to record
that there was no sudden rush to accent
Dr. Thtjmas' offer. Dr. Thomas has al
ways been known as a rabid goldbug but
he told the trustees some facts that evi
dently did not set comfortably with his
brethren of the Hanna persuasion, regard
ing the causes of th« large vote William J
Bryan received from the Republican rankD
at the last election. They were plain, un
varnished facts to the extent that lt'was
Just such fostering of monopolies as the
acceptance of this "offer" would result in
that caused so many thousands of Repub
licans to desert the ranks and even vote
for Bryan rather than accept the leaderr
ship of Mark. Hanna and his allied corpor
The following communication, self-ex
planatory, was read:
"Qentelemen: We beg'to request that
your honorable body take under advise

franchise similar to that granted the pres

—that Is a franchise for transmitting elec
trical energy for both lighting and power
purposes within the limits of your city—
and if given an opportunity to do so, we
shall be pleased to make a bid for such
a franchise. The source of supply for
■ueli electric power ao might be transmit

would be the Big Tejunga canyiti, situ

possibilities of which as a source of water

bringing a large crowd of visitors, many
of whom stayed over Sunday. Yesterday,
however, was the banner day in the his

about 12 oclock, each carrying her full com

First—sfltl road running up the canyon
was a county road when the Arrowhead
company constructed a toll gate thereon,

our old road so that those owning and hav

aged by said toll gate, and our old picnic
grounds will be restored to the public.
We ask to have a one-half rate for those
wishing to travel only a portion of the
road, as we consider It unjust for those
woodmen to pay full rates when they trav
el such a short distance.
Third—We are advised that the company
compels people going 6ver the road to pur

Your correspondent has interviewed a
number of orange growers as to the prob
able fate of the Riverside fruit exchange,
now that It has withdrawn from the South

hope Is that the local exchange can be re
organized, but not much confidence Is ex
posed. The directors of the strong asso
clallons say they will not affiliate unless
the co-operation can be made practically
unanimous. In discussing the withdrawal
of the Riverside exchange from the general
organization, the opinion is expressed, that
the action was the result of dissatisfaction
with the management of the general offi
cers' and a condition of the organization
which made It possible for certain associa
tions to exert control beyond all propor
tion to the fruit represented. In other

and redeemed every man, and you are as
much redeemed as any minister on this
platform. But redemption is not sal
vation. They have accepted the sal
vation Christ has offered. If you have
not, then you are dead, and have not the
life he bought for you.
To repent Is not remorse. Judas had
remorse, but he did not repent. Repent
ance isn't joining the church. Many In
the church have, not repented and are not
saved. Repentance means to change
your mind and relation toward God.
The third thing required of us is to
believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Are
you willing in this the day of his pow
er to believe on him? If you are willing
to submit to him and obey him, ye have
life. Take htm at his word and he will
lead you into a plain path. Obedience
marked the life of every true soldier.
God commands you to repent, and the
duty of the hour is for you to obey.
Oh, resolve to forsake the broad road
and turn your back on sin and believe
on Christ, and you can have this life
about which we are talking.

one of the leading hotels he heard the
