Commissioner Wyman
Goes on Record
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
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
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.

the building superintendent yesterday:

ton. Details will be sent by mail.
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
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
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.
