AS TO SALOONS Commissioner Wyman Goes on Record HE STATES HIS POSITION CHINESE LOTTERY JOINTS IN SALOONS They Must Be Stopped at Ones or the Licenses Will Be Revoked. City Hall Note* The police commissioners held a lons executive session prior to the regular meeting of the board yesterday morn ing. Chief Glass also took part in the conference, which is supposed to have been devoted to talking over the pro posed increase of the force, and the em ployment of specials. Nothing, however, was said in the open meeting on these matters. There was quite a large at tendance of citizens, most of whom were on hand to protest against the granting of a saloon license for No. 1818 South Main street, while another delegation was present to protest against a pro posed transfer from Los Angeles and First streets to No. 113 East First street. The board met at 10:30 oelock, with Mayor Snyder presiding and all the members present. On the favorable report of the chief, the application of George Mapes and J M. Adams for the transfer of the sa loon license for No. 418 South Main atreet from Charles J. Kuhl to himself was granted, as were also the applica tions of P. J. Estes and C. Rothman for the trar.SFfer of the saloon license for No. 421 South Main street, from Mrs Anna Mtlner to themselves, and R. Schulte, No. 616 South Broadway, from Echulte & Hoth to himself. The chief presented the report of De tective Moffatt on the application of F. Conrad Dor the transfer of his saloon license from the northwest corner of First and Los Angeles streets to No. 113 East First street. The report was pre sented a week earlier than it would have been but for the fact that Mr. Moffatt Intends to leave the city. Mr. Moffatt reported that he knew of no reason why the transfer should not he granted, as Conrad had always kept an orderly •house, and contemplated making exten sive improvements in the new place. President Avery of the German-Amer ican Savings bank presented a protest, and also spoke at some length. He said that he and the other property owners had already filed one protest, as there are already too many saloons in this vi cinity, there being twenty within the radius of a block. He believed that this move was simply preparatory to getting another saloon in the building to be va cated, which could easily be secured. Main street property owners were try ing to improve the character of the street, and any more saloons would sim ply make the work harder. Dr. Kurtz epoke in the same line, and then the mat ter went over for one week, wheru it Will come up in regular order. J. S. Perrier was granted permission to withdraw his application for a sa loon license for No. 1818 South Main atreet. He stated that he thought he could get some additional frontage. As he did so, Commissioner Wyman re marked, "I will say for your benefit, or any other applicant, that as long as I am a member of this board I will op pose the location of any saloon in any residence district of the city." I believe the commission, should take that view of the matter from the start." The application of A. Ducos for the transfer of the saloon license for No. 829 North Main street, now in the name of Ducos & Rogues, to himself, was re ferred to the chief. A numerously signed petition ot French speaking people asking for the appointment of Pasqual Hiriat as a spe cial policeman was read and filed. A petitionj for the appointment of L, J. Hill as a special officer without pay was referred to the chief. A communication from the manager of Fiesta park in reference to a benefit performance for the police pension fund was filed. The rule forbids police offi cers to sell tickets for such perform ances, and no action was taken. The applications of Charles H. Ritchie, John H. Wept, Henry Schoncke and Mor ris H. Moore for appointment as special officers were filed. Commissioner Gibbon moved that all applications of those who did not come within the age limit, 25 to 35 years, be returned by the clerk, which motion prevailed. In response to a question by Commis sioner Gibbon, Chief Glass stated that the Chinese lottery joints were being closed and forced back into Chinatown. He did not say that the evil was sup pressed, but it was very much curtailed. On motion of Commissioner Gibbon the board's special attorney, Mr. Chambers, was instructed to furnish an opinion by the next meeting in the matter of the mining exchanges where the transac tions are carried on by means of tapes. Chief Glass reported that several sa loons had rented out portions of their premises for Chinese lottery gambling. He had notified all such parties that this would not be tolerated, and if they were not closed he would ask the com mission! to revoke the licenses. On motion of Commissioner Gibbon, the chief was instructed to report to the commission all places where saloons rent a portion of their rooms for Chinese lot tery, and notify them to discontinue; that failure to comply with the noticj ■would be deemed sufficient ground for the revocation of the license by the commission. Attorney H. Frank Davis preferred charges against Officer Ross Phillip? for assaulting one Wong Sun Sue, on the 27th of April last. The charges ar? very voluminous, but contain nothing beyond what was printed at the time. The commission then adjourned, an.-] the members retired to the mayor's of fice for another consultation. Westlake Boating Privilege The action of the council in hanging up the contract of Newall Brothers fo" the boating privileges at Westlake park on sundry flimsy pretexts is causing much unfavorable criticism. The con tract was awarded, by the park commis •lonera to the Newell Brothers as the beat bidders, and they filed a gilt-edged bond. This bond was satisfactory to the commissioners, but was referred back to them by the council, to kill time Then it came back anfl was referred back to the finance committee,which pre sented a favorable report at the last meeting. Then it was sent to the city attorney. It is claimed that Councilman Blanchard wanted one of the other bid ders to get the contract, which is the reason for his opposition. In the mean time, the city is losing money every tiay by the delay. It was stated yesterday that an effort would be made tct keep the matter over the Fourth of July in the interest of the present contractor. Building Permits The following permits were issued by the building superintendent yesterday: Mrs. E. H. Howard. Park View, be tween Sixth and Boulevard, two-story frame dwelling, $4200.

Hance, City Clerk, Los Ange les: Have treasurer ready to sign bonds on receipt of our letter mailed today.

FOOLED A JUSTICE But Will Now Have to Answer to a Charge of Forgery Deputy Constable Gilbert of Pomona arrested C. W. Filkins on San Pedro street yesterday morning after quite an exciting chase, during which the officer's revolver was discharged into the air and had the effect of bringing the fleeing man to a halt. Filkins was arrested at Pomona several weeks ago in company with a man named J. A. Jones and two women. The party had driven out to that quiet place and after getting intoxicated be gan showing the rurals how such things were done in the city. The country peo ple objected to some of their epithets, and a fight resulted. Filkins and Jones were taken before Justice of the Peace Barnes and fined $5 each for disturbing the peace. Filkins didn't mind a little thing like that a bit, and offered to pay both his own and his friend's fine. To this end he handed the justice a check for $10, which was accepted and they were re leased. When the check was presented for payment it was found to be worthies? Since then Deputy Sheriff Gilbert has* been on the lookout for Filkins, and when he ran across him yesterday morning ordered him to surrender. Fil kins was not anxious to sample Pomona justice a second time, and started to run. The officer did not wait for him to get far but drew out his revolver and fired it into the air. Filkins did not care to be made a target of and stopped short. Gilbert came up with him and took him In charge. He was later taken to Po mona, where he will have to answer to a charge of forgery. Filkins is well known to the police In this city and has been in jail several times. He was tried a short time ago for petty larceny, but the evidence was not strong enough to convict him.
