EQUALIZATION Councilmen Are Struggling With Assessments BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS PETITIONS AND PROTESTS PASSED UPON Vital Statistics for July—Land Taken by the City for Delinquent Taxes. City Hall Notes Th**re was a swarm of people before the board of equalization yesterday morning. The recent notices sent out by the board to the effect that protest.-; and appeals must be made in person accounted for the increased, attendance. No large reductions were asked for, the property represented being in the main of the middle variety. Today the boari will act on the City Water company's appeal. The water company demands a reduction from $600,000 to $90,000. Last year the property was assessed at $75,000 and a big cut is not an improbable re sult of today's action by the board. It is said that the cut asked for will reach $500,000, but the statements are merc guessee. The larger reductions made yesterday were as follows: D. Botiller. from $250) to $1200, on Improvements; W. Pardee, four lots in Owens & Scott's subdivision. reudced from $1795 to $1200; Miss Kate .Wallace, from $950 to $800, on lots, and $100 cut for Improvements- assessed at $600; Isabella H. Huber, cancellation of $1000 for an erroneous assessment. Nolan & Smith's demand for a deduc tion on property at Second and Broad way was denied. The firm desired a cut from $32,140 to $25,000, and, from $10,000 to $8000 on Improvements. Today the Vernon district, recently annexed, will make appeals, and spe cial attention will be given them. O:; Tuesday the Harper tract, Rosedale and Pico Heights annexations will be heard. The board desires the people in those districts to be prompt in making their appearance. Chairman Silver instructed the asses sor to notify about 500 people to appear before the board and show cause why •they should not pay certain assessments The necessity of such instruction is ap parent when the fact is made known that the assessor made a large number of what Is known as "lump" assess ments. That is, that people who owned several lots adjoining one another were assessed, on the whole number instead of being assessed separately for each lot. as the law requires. PUBLIC WORKS Petitions Passed Upon at the Board Meeting Yesterday The board of public works met yester day afternoon. The petition of E. H. Mullin and others to make Thirty-second street fifty feet wide met a vigorous pro test from the adjacent property owners, and the board denied the same. The city engineer was directed to lo cate a 60-foot street at the point in con tention, from Vermont avenue to Hooker street, and the protestants went away . beaming with satisfaction. The petition of the Los Angeles In firmary and others to establish the grade of Basil street was referred to the city engineer to present an ordinance of intention. Mrs. Amelia Elliott and J. C. Elliott presented a petition to grade that por tion of Toberman street between Six teenth and Seventeenth streets, and the board recommended that the work be done under the Bond act. George H. O'Dell's petition for a ce ment curb and sidewalk on both sides of Santee street between Twenty-first and Twenty-third streets, was granted to the city engineer. W. P. Hunt, who deslrc-d to establish a boundary line on certain lands leased by him, situate in block 45 of Hancock's survey, was granted that privilege and the matter was referred to the city en gineer. The city engineer was instructed to make a survey to establish lines across the southwest road of Ed street. The petition from I. J. Reynolds, for the improvement of "E" street from the east line of Pasadena avenue to the west line of Midland street, work to be done under the Bond act, was granted, and the city engineer was instructed to make the necessary survey.

Sunday evening next the Con gregational church at Hill and Sixth streets has been secured. Staff Captain Dunham, who is In command here, with his wife, has ordered the whole of the Southern California forces out on Tues day and Wednesday evenings, and big meetings are expected. Of the three majors who are visiting the city at present in the interest of the local Salvation army work, Major Mc- Intyre is probably best known to the people of Southern California. Major Mclntyre is at present in charge of the Pacific coast division, in the absence of Lieutenant Colonel Keppel.who has gone to the old country, representing the Pa cific coast in the army's big convention at Crystal Palace, London. He firs, came to the south about five years ago, when he took charge of this district which position he held for some three years, after which he was promoted to the position of general secretary of the entire coast, which place he has held since. Major Marshall is in command of the Northern Pacific division of the Salva tion army, having headquarters at Port land, Or. He has been in the front rank of the army for some years, and has had charge of the work In Chicago for some time before coming to Portland. He was assisting in the Salvation army camp meeting at San Francisco lately, when Staff Captain Dunham secured him for a couple of special meetings in Los Angeles. i Major S. L. Brengle is an eastern man and for a time had charge of the Maine and New Hampshire districts. During 1596 he went to Chicago with Colonel Brewer as general secretary, when he was appointed; to the secretaryship of the central division, with headquarters at New York, where he is now laboring Major Brengle is the author of numer ous books and tracts, of which, perhaps, the best known is his "Helps to Holi ness." A CARELESS FELLOW Recklessly Shoots a Small Boy in the Back Alden. the 12-year-old boy of Alden Peasley, of the Troy laundry, who lives at 1181 West Thirtieth street, was shot in the back a few days ago by a stray bullet and is now lying at his home in a dangerous condition as a result of the wound. Thus far all efforts on the part of the physicians to locate the bullet have been unsuccessful. It Is supposed to be a 22-calibre rifle ball. The accident occurred on Santa Mon ica avenue. The boy was walking along in company with another lad of his own age, when the bullet struck him. They did not see anyone and do not know who fired the shot. The residents in the neighborhood of where the accident occurred complain of the reckless shooting which has been going on for some time. There are sev eral boys who practice shooting at a target with a 22 calibre rifle and their bullets have caused a great deal of an noyance by the promiscuous manner in which they have sent their bullets whiz zing about people's heads. LIGHT AND POWER Contracts Awarded and Work Begun at San Gabriel Canyon The California Construction company has been awarded the contract for the work on the San Gabriel Electric Light and Power company's plant, in the San Gabriel canyon, and have located three camps on the way; one of these will be two and a half miles from Azusa, another five miles, and the third seven miles. Contracts have been made with Fel lows Bros, and Mr. Lane for hauling about 1000 tons of material. By August 10 it is expected that there will be a full force at work on the tunnels and ditches. Under the contract for the construction of the plant, everything must be com pleted by March 15, 1898. There will be 20,000 feet of tunnels through rock, to cost $100,000, and the excavation for the ditches and pipe line will cost $40,000 more while there will be large Items of expense in addition to those. The pipe line will be of forty elght-lnch redwood pipe, the ditch will be cemented and two large steel siphons Will be put in. Fixed at the Receiving Hospital E. Arndelestenne, a carpenter, was working on a shed yesterday morning, when he fell to the ground and cut a hole through his cheek. He came to the Re ceiving hospital, where Dr. Hagadorn treated him, after which he returned to his home at 2231 State street LOS ANGELES HERALD? SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 7, 1897 THE TEN BLOCK System of Country Road Numbering AN ADVANTAGEOUS SCHEME INVENTION FOR DESIGNATING RURAL HOMES And Measuring Distances on County Thoroughfares—Explanation of Its Workings At the meeting of the board of super visors Wednesday a plan for the con secutive numbering of county roads and farm houses l , somewhat similar to the method now in use in cities, was brought to the attention of that body by a com mittee of the Merchants and Manufac turers' association, and met with favor able consideration. A general outline was given in yesterday's issue, but the following explanation will give a clearer idea of what Is proposed to be done. The originator of the scheme isiA. L. Bancroft, the well known San Francisco publisher, and the system has been adopted in Contra Costa county, where he has large landed Interests, with the most satisfactory results. By the use of this scheme, which Is known as the "ten block" system, the exact location of the residences and the distances of each from the beginning of the road are shown. Names are applied to the roads of a county for as great distances in a gen eral direction as practicable. The names are selected and appliedi in much the same way as for the streets of cities. The names of both termini and of the residents on the road being avoided, the names are equally applicable when trav eling in either direction and are equally satisfactory to all. The possessive ease in road names is also avoided. The roads commence at the county seat, or at the end nearest to it, and extend away from it. Each mile along the roads is divided into ten equal parts, or imaginary blocks, having a frontage on the road of 528 feet, 176 yards, 32 rods or 8 chains. These blocks have only frontage, not depth nor thickness. Two numbers are assigned to each block, the odd ones on the left and the even ones on the right. When a road passes through a village or town the country numbers cease at the entrance of the town, but the measuring continues through it, and the country numbers are resumed upon emerging from the town limits again, the numbers of the blocks always being determined by the distance from the starting point. Each and every house located in a block has the number of that block. In very few Instances along our country roadis will more than one house be located In the same block. When this does occur the first house has simply the number of the block. The second and all succeeding houses have the same number, followed by dis tinguishing letters of the alphabet in regular succession: 298, 298 a, 298b, etc. These numbers indicate distances from the commencement of the road, which can be calculated almost instantly. As there are two numbers to each block, divide the hous-e numbers by two, and we have the total number of blocks. As there are ten blocks to the mile, divide the result obtained by ten or point off one decimal, and the distance in miles and tenths is shown. Take the same number, 298, divide it by two and we have 149; point off one decimal and we have 14.9 miles from the commencement. The advantages to be secured by the adoption of the ten-block system are very great and numerous. The plan is permanent in its character. The num bers would never require changing. Should the distinguishing letters of the house numbers In one block need re arranging, it would, not In any way dis turb the others. New roads can be opened and new residences built, and both be fitted Into the system without difficulty; therefore, it is available for all classes of communities at once, and would be exceedingly useful to all, whether old or new, because It is perma nent, it is economical, and there are no reasons why it should not be generally established without delay. When the numbers are placed at the entrances they answer every purpose of milestones. With this system estab lished in a county, distances can be quickly and accurately calculated from any house number to any other house number In the county. With the assis tance of a key map and road key, taking up no more room than a large letter en velope, which can be carried in the pocket or In a memorandum book, a traveler can readily find any house in the county without loss of time or asking a question, and almost at a glance can compare the length of routes and decide upon the shorter one to take. Verbal directions can be given and received which will enable the stranger to readily find the residence sought. The mileage of Jurymen, constables and other offi cials can be readily and accurately cal culated. Road work to be done or other Improvements to be effected can be readily, easily and definitely located, and a road register for the convenience of the officials becomes practicable. The boundaries of school districts, road districts, supervisor districts, elec tion precincts, etc., can be easily defined and understood. Country physicians can readily find the houses of their pa tients, and will have data from which to make charges for their visits. By placing some monuments at the divis ions between the blocks, or otherwise permanantly Indicating them, they could be used as starting points in de scribing farm boundaries when sales are made and transfers become necessary. As numbers are assigned to all the blocksi whether occupied or not, they are al ways in readiness- for new residences and can always be applied to them at any time to any extent without dis turbing the arrangement of the exist ing numbers. A directory showing the exact location of every resident of the county becomes feasible, or the address es by road and number can be given lr. the great register of the county, which would be useful to a limited extent. The establishing of a country postal deilv cry system, such as is In vogue In Eng land, becomes practicable. It would fa ! cllitate business and social intercourse' between the town and country and be tween the country residents themselves j and would exert a powerful civilising influence upon the people. SAN DIEGO CO. TO REMAIN Individual Interests Will Support It. New Displays The San Diego county exhibit is> not to be withdraw n from the chamber af ter all. Paul H. Blades of the Record telephoned Secretary Wiggins yester day morning that he, Mr. Blades, had interests in San Diego s-ufncient to Jus tify him In offering to stand, responsi ble for the space rent of the county dis play, and.

"In order to have the whole southern part of the state s>taud pat," said tho gentle secretary yesterday, "we are dis tributing Santa Barbara literature with the rest, notwithstanding the fact that that county does not support an exhibit in the chamber. We get absolutely i o compensation for it, except that It ac commodates those people who make in quiry regarding that section." The late donation" for display are: Gold quartz by L. M.

The following telegram was received by the chamber yesterday from Port land, Ore.: "Indian institute voted unanimously for Los Angeles for the next convention. (Signed) "CHARLES E. BURTON." Mr. Burton Is a teacher at the Indian school at San Jacinto, and the above wire is the result of an Invitation sent to Mr. Burton from the chamber of com merce asking the- Institute to hold Its next meeting here. That means be tween 400 and 500 people, as there are fully that number of teachers and work ers amcfig the Indians of the northwest connected with the institute. BENEATH THE WHEELS A Young Man Hurt by a University ■ Ca'i Chouteau Capltan. a young man living at 1331 South Flower street, had his foot badly crushed by a University car near Pico street yesterday afternoon. Capl tan attempted to get on the car while it was moving rapidly. As it came by he grabbed for the uprights along the side and missed his hold. He was thrown under the trucks and hlsleft foot ground beneath the wheels. The car was brought up as quickly as possible after he had been dragged several feet. His foot had become wedged beneath the wheels in such a manner that it took twenty minutes to get him out, and then the car had to be lifted up. The patrol wagon was sent after, but by the time it reached the scene the young man's mother had arrived and asked to have her son taken home, which was only half a block away. Physicians were summoned and it is not yet known whether an amputation will be neces sary or not. Car No. 127 is the one by which Capi tan was hurt. No blame Is attached to the train crew, as the accident would not have occurred If the young man had waited for the car to stop. NEEDLESS AGITATION Pomona Sees Bears Instead of Pros pective Trade An agitated dispatch from Pomona under date of August 5 to a morning contemporary apprehends various kinds of calamity from the alleged fact that "a systematic effort is being made lo break down the olive market by several eastern buyers, who have been in this field for several days." That Pomona's gentle heart may be eased of its apprehensions, and her nerves quieted, be it known that there have been no olive or other bears in her vicinity that mean her harm. James Hill, Sons & Co. state with commendable frankness that he is the guilty party who has been all about through the Pomona olive district on a tour of in spection with the sole Idea and desire of buying olives at normal prices to make an article that Is sought for by eastern buyers. Mr. Hill claims Interest In neither bulls nor bears, Just the ad, vancement and progression of trade. Marriage Licenses The following licenses wereissued yes terday from the office of the county clerk: Henry Liefer, a native of Germany, aged 39 years, and Tlllie Rezel, a native of Germany, aged 36 years; both resi dents of Los Angeles. Ignaclo Padia, a native of California, aged 22 years, and a resident of Whittier, and Juana B. Linarez, also a native of California, aged 28 years and a resident of Los Nietos. A London paper claims that teak li the most durable wood known for struc tural and mechanical purposes. It is hard, yet light, easily worked ar.d, al though porous, shrinks little, and be cause of Its oily nature does not injure iron. In southeastern Asia It is much used for shipbuilding. The wood is fre quently girded a year before It is* felled and thus exposed to the sun and wind It seasons more rapidly than when cut green. Rebel George's Case The examination of George Knowlton, alias "Rebel George,' the gold brick swindler, which was to have taken place yesterday morning before Justice Owens, was again continued until the 16th to be reset. Knowlton was transferred to the county jail pending his examination. STEINWAY Pianos ■ -SOLE AGENCY— BARTLETT'S MUSIC HOUSE Kveryth'ng In Music 288 8. SPKINit ST. Established H7i THE BLACKMAN MUDDLE WHY PRESIDENT CLINE DOES NOT WORRY Efforts to Compromise tho Case Fall Through—Surety Company Must Stand the Loss Since the incarceration of W. R. Black man In the county Jail on two charges of embezzling $500 and $60. respectively, from the Los Angeles Electric company particulars of which are now well know n certain statements have appeared in print which are not only incorrect, bu; appear to have been inspired by a de sire to give e-ome free advertising to the guaranty company that is on Black man's bond. A strenuous endeavor is made to show that the Electric company not only caused the delinquent's aires' but that it is determined' to punish him with the utmoK rigor of the law. At the same time it Is studiously stated that the guaranty company's- representative A. P. Redding, did not come to Los An geles on this business, but was just passing through and stayed over a day to look Into it i,n a cas»ual sort of way. .Tust why these Incorrect statements should he f-o Industriously circulated is not quite clear at this writing, hut it is known that Mr. Redding feels consid erably sore over the manner In which he has been, as he thinks, snubbed, by President Cline of the Electric com pany. It appears that when the defal cation was discovertd. which was on Friday, Mr. Cline had already complete.! ararngemcnts to leave for a vacation to be sptnt at Coronado. and that the family's packing up was already done. Mr. Cline having promptly notitied the guaranty company through its local agent of the existence of a defalcation en which it was liable to the extent of $10,000. supposably four times the amount of the loss, and having put a couple of "experts" to work on the books and presided at a meeting of the directr* of his company at which a new secretary was appointed, went off last Monday morning on his well earned vacation from which he may be summoned If his presence Is needed. There has been n > meeting of the directors since his de parture, and it is known that the pres ident and the members of the board feel the liveliest compassion for the family that has thus suddenly been made to feel the disgrace that attaches to the criminal act© of the man who should have been its shield and protector. The Electric company having no fin ancial loss to sustain has no cause to be specially vindictive in the matter. The complaint in the case had to be sworn to by an officer of the company as soon as the' Pacific Surety company declciad to resort to criminal proceedings. In the absence of a private settlement the Guaranty company will, naturally enough, only pay on its bond the amount that has been actually embezzled; mere mistakes in bookkeeping do not count. Mr. Redding was here several days trying to force a private settlement and wa? much chagrined and annoyed to And that he got no assistance from President Cline, who was calmly enjoying the salt breezes away from all business troubles, conscious that the financial loss would fall upon the bonding company or the friend© of the defaulter. It was finally agreed by Mr. Redding that he would accept Blackman's state ment that the deficiency was about $3500, and certainly would not go over $4000, and Redding further agreed that on the deposit of $4000 cash to be put in a bank in escrow by Blackman's friends he would assume on the part of his com pany any further liability and woulci refrain from pressing any criminal charge. This was on Thursday and he gave a matter of two hours for a reply. In this short time Blackman's friends raised $2000 cash and made an offer of that amount in full, which was refused; upon which the offer was withdrawn and the arrest followed. The homestead was filed by Black man's wife on the advice of her attorney to protect the home, but she has always been ready to surren<S_-r It, being all she has, if the sacrifice would bring her hus band's release and quittance. The arrest of Blackman has disquiet ed the large staff of the Electric com pany and of the Lighting company. Divers rumors are in circulation inti mating that others besides Blackman will have to stand investigation and if there be any high rollers among then; they may be called upon to mend their w ays and reform altogether. SOLDIER'S HOME RESPONDS Home Products Will Enter the Lists for Supplies Secretary Zeehandelaar, of the home products committee, yesterday received a letter from Col. Andrew J.

Pinkham is More Successful Than *!y A woman is sick : .some disease peculiar toher is fast _ She s^es^^^M|^&|»BH^B^^J years ago Mrs. Lydia E. Pink ; ham. at Lynn, Mass., determined to step in nndhelpher sex. Having had consid* I erable experience in treating female ills with her Vegetable Compound, she en couraged the women of America to write to her for advice in regard to their j complaints, and, being a woman, it was easy for her ailing sisters to pour into her ears every detail of their suffering. In this way she was able to do for them what the physicians were unable to do, simply because she had the proper information to work upon, and i from the little group of women who sought her advice years ago a great army of her fellow-beings are to-day constantly applying for advice and re lief, and the fact that more than one hundred thousand of them have been | successfully treated by Mrs. Pinkham during the last year is indicative of , the grand results which are produced by her unequaled experience and training. No physician in the world has had such a training, or has such an amount of information at hand to assist in the treatment of all kinds of female ills, from the simplest local irritation to the most complicated diseases of the womb. This, therefore, is the reason why Mrs. Pinkham, in her laboratory at Lynu, Mass., is able to do more for the ailing women of America than the ! family physician. Any woman, therefore, is responsible for her own suffering | who will not take the trouble to write to Mrs. Pinkham for advice. Tha testimonials which we are constantly publishing from grateful women establish beyond a doubt the power of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com ! pound to conquer female diseases. co-operallon with the movement, that he believed many articles produced here to be superior to similar articles now im ported from the east and Europe, and that he had instructed the treasurer of the home to communicate directly with Mr. Zeehandelaar. The treasurer's communication arrived by the same mail, stating that bids would be asked for In about three weeks, that one of the blanks for bids would be sent to the home products committee and that so far as possible home production should be favored, but that those goods must come to a certain established standard for them to be eligible.
