The Finance Committee Becommends
Changes ln the Fire Department.
Contractor Clayton's Kick
Some seventy-five property owners on
Spring, Main and Los Angeles streets
yesterday filed a communication to the
council asking that steps be taken to
secure not one, but two, openings for
tbe proposed boulevard to Pasadena
from tbe plaza. It will be noticed ln
perusal that the routes as outlined both
center at East Side park, one being for
what is called the Adobe road, the other
to go out Buena Vista street. This step
would seem to indicate that the Pasa
dena avenue and Arroyo Seco route pro
moters are to be left out in the cold, as
It ia expressly provided that "Buena
Vista street be widened and improved
and continued through East Los Angeles
to the East Side park, a route to be here
after designated."
This will probably precipitate another
red hot fight before the board of public
works at the next hearing, Friday, as
ths petition will undoubtedly be refer
red to that body for recommendation.
The petition in full reads as follows:
We, the undersigned properly owners
and residents, respectfully petition your
honorable body to take the necessary
steps and proceedings for the purpose
of opening and constructing a boulevard
120 feet ln width, running from the plaza
and connecting with the adobe road al
the city limits ln as near a direct line
as possible, and upon the route recom
mended by the engineers of the Los An
geles and Pasadena boulevard commit
tee, with such changes as further inves
tigation may show to be desirable. In
fixing this route it is our desire, and we
would request your honorable body to
be governed In the determination of the
same by the committee constituting a
portion of the Los Angeles and Pasadena
boulevard committee, aided by the fol
lowing committee appointed by the
property holders on Main, Spring and
Los Angeles streets: F. W. Braun, Wil
liam Ferguson, H. W. Hellman, Victor
Ponet, Alfred H. Wilcox.
We further petition that another
boulevard be started by opening a new
street from the plaza on a direct course
to Buena Vista street at its junction
with Bellevue avenue, provided that
,Buena Vista street be widened and im
proved and continued through East Los
Angeles to the East Side park upon a
route to be hereafter designated. Said
new street from the plaza to the junction
of Bellevue avenue and Buena Vista
street to be of the same width as Buena
Vista street when widened; and that an
assessment district be formed for the
opening and improving of the boulevard
from the plaza to East Side park, and
f6r the new street from the plaza to the
junction of Buena Vista street with
Bellevue avenue, and that another and
separate assessment district be formed
for the widening and improving of
Buena Vista street continued through
East Los Angeles to the East Side park.
Recommends Changes in the Fire De
partment—Tax Sale Rebates
The report of the Finance Committee
to the Council has been filed. It was rec
ommended that a rebate of $2.14 be al
lowed Max Godde on his taxes, also for
a rebate of $10.60 to C. W. Bush.
Recommend that the bondsof C.J. Dah!
as Boiler Inspector, and J. G. Patterson
as Deputy Boiler Inspector be approved.
In the matter of the report of the Board
of Fire Commissioners that the present
ordinance regulating the number of men,
employed in the Fire Department and
salaries fixing same, be amended so as
to increase the salary of the City Elec
trician to $125 and provide for the em
ployment of three hosemen at $50 each
per month and. four laddermen at $50per
month each, to be assigned to Engine
Company No. 3 and. truck A, in the place
of six callman and one foreman as at
present; recommend that the request be
granted and that the City Attorney be
instructed to present an amendment to
the l exls-ting ordinance providing for
changes herein contemplated.
In keeping with the request of the
City Clerk of date September 7, 1897,
recommend that he beauthorized to can
cel the following sales for the years
1887-88 and 1888-89 because of double as
sessments of the respective pieces of
property for that year:
Lot 60x60, more or less, north side of
Seventh street, bounded north by Wolf-
Skill Orchard tract, east by Hartman,
west by Moriay.
Fifty feet adjoining lot 4,Abila tract,
on the south, running back 330 feet to a
point, bounded west by lot 4 and J. W.
Holloway and south by Boughton.
East half of west half of lot 12, Pavil
ion subdivision Bunker Hill tract; also
lot 6 same tract.
Fails to See Why the Council Regards
Him as "Irresponsible"
S. B. Clayton, the contractor, who at
the last meeting of the council, on rec
ommendation of the board of public
works, was declared an "Irresponsible
bidder," has addressed a communication
to the city fathers, asking a reconsidera
tion of their action. He declares that he
never "defaulted" in work done by him
for the city, and says that It was through
no fault of his that the Improvements
on Bauchet street, done by him, have not
been accepted, for the street is as good
a piece of work as there is in the city.
Again, he has never been in arrears
In payment of wages to men employed
by him on public work, as had been
charged; neither was he ever a partner
with one McCormiek, who Is also a per
sona non grata with the board of pub
lic works—that is, he was never in part
nership with him in city work.
He was the lowest bidder on the im
provement of Eastlake and Towne av
enues, contracts for which were award
ed last Monday, and being the lowest
and no good reason existing for the
council's having declared him an Irre
sponsible bidder, the contracts were by
it Illegally awarded. In conclusion Mr.
Clayton asks the honorable body to look
Into his statements and reconsider its
action which to him Is so Injurious.
Valuable Gravel Land
F. B. Ballertno has filed a protest to
the counoll against the proposed exten
sion of Hoover street from Pico to Sixth.
He sets forth that ths street would oc- i
cupy a portion of his land, which Is very
valuable on account of gravel beds con
tained, and asserts that the Improve
ment would damage blm to tbe extent
of 115,000, for which h says he will bold
the council responsible should the mat
ter be pressed to a conclusion.
Street Improvements
City Clerk Hance yesterday prepared
his weekly report for submission to the
council at Monday's meeting. In it he
recommends the passage of final ordi
nances for the Improvement of Eliza
beth street, between Date street and Its
westerly termination; Thirty-fifth
street from Figueroa to Jefferson street,
and Rosabell street throughout its en
tire length.
Sewer Matters
The sewer committee yesterday de
cided to recommend that the council
grant permission to G. W. Maxwell to
lay a three-Inch iron water pipe under
ground across Rosemont avenue near
Keyes street to carry seepage water
from the cesspool ln the yard of peti
tioner on the west side of the street to
a cesspool on the east side of the street.
Pico-Street Improvement
C. M. Jones and other property own
ers on Pico street have filed a petition
to the city council, asking to have the
street improved between Pacific and
Western avenues.
Want a Sewer
Property owners on Olive street have
petitioned the council that a sewer be
laid on that street between First street
and Bunker Hill avenue, to connect
with the Olive street sewer.
Against a Change
About twenty residents on East Fif
teenth street have filed a protest to the
city council against the proposed re
naming of that thoroughfare east of San
Pedro street.
Rich Valley Lands With Plenty of
Water—A Railroad Is
Mr. Thomas C. Bralnard, who has
been engaged in railroad work and min
ing for some years past in lnter-moun
taln regions of the United States, is
now in Los Angeles, waiting for rail
road developments which are soon to
materialize for the benefit of this sec
tion. Mr. Bralnard spent years secur
ing rights of way for the Union Pacific
railroad in its building operations In the
state of Colorado. He also took an ac
tive part in connection with the issu
ance and sale of county bonds to assist
the Union Pacific ln its work.
At a later date Mr. Bralnard was en
gaged ln mining operations in the Crip
ple Creek country, Just missing some of
the large strikes In that country which
has been made famous for its rich de
Some seven years ago he had charge
of a party of reconnoltering engineers
sent through to Southern California by
the Union Pacific when it was decided
to build a line from Salt Lake City to
Los Angeles.
He speaks of the Las Vegas valley in
Southern Nevada as one of the rich
valleys on the proposed line of the Utah
Southern, which Is soon to be extended
in this direction. This valley contains
about 200,000 acres of fine valley land,
with plenty of water obtained from
creeks, springs and artesian wells to
irrigate the entire valley. Surface
water can be had at a depth of from Aye
to fifty feet. There are two improved
places in the valley, and these produce
the finest of fruits—the apples being
particularly fine. There Is no railroad
at present within seventy-five miles of
the valley, the little Vanderbllt branch
from Gaff station northward In this
state being the nearest railroad connec
tion with the valley. The location of
the country Is such, however, that any
railroad built from Utah to Southern
California must, almost of necessity,
pass through this valley.
The lands of the valley all belonged to
the state of Nevada, and are school
lands. The state offered these lands for
sale at $1.25 per acre, of which amount
U5 cents an acre was payable on or be
fore twenty-five years from date of
purchase, with Interest at the rate of six
per cent per annum.
Mr. G. C. Kirby, who has an office ln
the Stimson block, in the city, pur
chased several sections of this valley
land, knowing that without a railroad
the lands were of little or no value, but
also knowing, for he had been all over
the lands, that with a railroad these
lands would be worth from $40 to $50 an
Mr. Klrby has also been acting as
agent for the lands, and through his In
strumentality over half of the lands of
the valley have been sold during the
past three years.
A few days since Mayor Snyder of this
city received a letter of inquiry from one
of Mr. Kirby's clients, Mr. A. J. Elliott,
of Minneapolis, Minn., asking where
of Minneapolis, Minn., asking where Las
Vegas valley was, and whether the lands
there were good, or otherwise, and what
were the railroad facilities, etc. Mr.
Elliott seemed to fear that his Invest
ment might not have been a good one;
he claimed to have invested all he
could afford and didn't want to lose it
This is always the case, no matter how
small the investment. The Herald,
knowing something about the situation,
started in to investigate a little. It
found that Mr. Elliott had purchased of
Mr. Kirby a small tract of the state
school lands, making the usual small
payment. If he Is not satisfied with
the purchase he can probably sell to
some one else. The value of the land
depends on the railroad to be built In
the meantime It costs but little to keep
up the interest, which is only 12.40 a
year on each forty-acre tract.
Mr. Kirby Is known favorably to The
Herald, and his dealings seem to be on
the square—honestly conducted.
Mrs. John Fox of Temple street and
Union avenue has gone to Garlock to
Join her husband, who has gone Into
business at that place.

A Few of the Diseases Cured by These Emi
nent Doctors
STOMACH, LIVER When these or-
AND BOWELS gans fail to per
form their functions, health and comfort
soon take flight. The system suffers;
food ie not digested; gas and acids are
formed; the blood becomes thin and im
pure; the liver congested, torpid and In
active. These conditions develop dys
pepsia, nervousness, bad taste, general
debility, headache, sallow skin, despon
dency, etc. Our success in curing these
diseases has been flattering.
TAPE AND Many kinds of worms
BOUND WORM infest the human sys
tem. They cause sickness, pain in the
stomach, los 9 or increase ln appetite,
dyspepsia, hysteria, epilepsy, etc. We
treat them with entirely new methods.
FISTULA if possible, Is more danger
ous and troublesome than piles. It ruins
the constitution. Our specialists have
met with unparalleled success, and in
vite patients to consult them.
FILES Destroy health and constitu
tion. Do not neglect to have them
treated, as It will not interfere with the
daily duties of the patient.
THE KIDNEYS The kidneys are the
AND BLADDEB most Important or
gans. If they fail the result ie disease,
not only of the kidneys, but other or
gans. Many cases which have/ been pro
nounced incurable by others have been
restored to perfect health by our new
CATARRH Is the most offensive dis
ease and productive of discomfort. The
sense of smell, taste, hearing and sight
suffer; the throat and lungs become im
plicated, and consumption is a very fre
quent result. It causes a discharge from
the nose so copious and offensive In many
cases that patients feel as If their head
was in a state of corruption. The breath
becomes tainted, and sometimes revolt
lngly offensive. The patient is subjected
to repeated colds, until It reaches the
lung tissues. It produces more con
sumption than all other causes. Patients
consulting us may do so with the hope
that If help is possible we will do all that
human aid can accomplish.
ASTHMA Is a disease accompanied
by great difficulty in breathing. We can
alleviate and finally prevent Its recur
CONSUMPTION Every man and wo
man dreads this disease, because it Is a
slow living death. There are three stages
of consumption. We will describe the
first, the gravity of its nature seldom
being observed. Unless strong battle is
given, it will hold the patient within its
grasp us til the second or last stage,
when the life of the victim, even under
the best treatment, Is ln grave peril. The
symptoms are loss of flesh without any
appreciable cause, dyspepsia, languor,
irritability, slight headaches and cool
extremities. This condition may exist
for years before the patient's attention
is called to the lungs. Our system never
fails to arrest this stage of the disease,
if promptly attended to. By a careful
examination of the lungs, and a micro
scopical examination of the expectora
tion or matter coughed up, we are en
abled to tell the condition of the lungs
in caee of consumption; this known, we
are able to treat the disease properly.
By the methods adopted by our special
ist, the dry, hacking cough disappears,
night sweats are quickly stopped, the
appetite restored, and lost vigor re
gained without the use of nauseating
medicines. We cannot cure a case
when It has reached the last stage, al
though we have restored many cases
after they were pronounced incurable.
NEBVOUS Very often thes<? patients
DISEASES are the very picture of
health, but for all that they may be ln a
critical condition. We have had exten
sive experience in these diseases, and by
our plan of treatment are enabled to re
lieve almost every case.
EPILEPSY Is Tt disease consisting of
periodical fits of convulsions. Our expe
rience warrants us to hold out hope to
those suffering with this diseas-e.
PABALYSIS No country in the world
has so many paralytlcsas has the United
States. It is a condition which requires
the genius of the specialist to remedy.
CANCEB If you have a lump or un
natural growth in the breast, or any part
of the person, attended with an occa
sional sticking, stabbing, creeping, ach
ing sensation, your difficulty may be a
cancer. No delay should be made in
having an examination, and thus save
you, If cancer, that distress and pain
equal to a century of ordinary pains.
ULCEBS AND Resulting from vari-
ABCESSES cose veins, necrosis of
the bones, etc., when 'treated in time are
permanently cured. j

sight than deformity caused by spinal
diseases. The person possesses life, but
lacks the complete enjoyment of it. and
is deprived of equality in business and

diseases of the spine, and furnish the

solutely cruel, owing to the general
practitioner's lack of facilities. We are
prepared to treat this disease by meth
ods free from barbarity and successful
in results.
DISEASES The following diseases

apply for a question list. SYPHILIS has
three distinct stages, primary, second
ary and tertiary. Many persons suffer
ing from diseases bearing other names
I are actually victims of syphilitic poison,
j contracted by unknown means, or ac-
I quired by heredity.
j DISEASES Years ago little was
OF WOMEN known of diseases of
women, and physicians mistook symp
-1 toms of which females complain, such
as dizziness, faintness, pain in back,
i sides, pains ln the head, bearing down
j sensation, bloating, to dyspepsia, liver
j complaint, heart disease, etc., when, as
I a matter of fact, they were caused by
some derangement of the reproductive
: organs. The most common diseases are
inflammation of the womb, vagina and
ovaries. Cancer is found more often in
| the womb than in any other organ. The
. symptoms accompanying these diseases
are whites, painful menstruation, ab
sence of the menses, oran Irregular flow.
We cure displacements painlessly, With*
I out exposure, unless bound by inflam-
I matory adhesion, and even then we can
