ASK A CHANGE Asphalt Specifications Shut Out Local Contractors DESULTORY BOULEVARD TALK DOWNEY AVENUE RESIDENTS WANT A BOULEVARD Pasadena Avenue Residents Protest. Spring Street Resurfacing Still Has a Chance Ihe communication sent to the city council by the Los Angeles Oil Burning and Supply company, which washy that body referred to the board of public works, promises to create somewhat of a stir when it is considered at the nex* meeting, It was to have been taken, up yesterday, but at the request of the president of the company and of the sev eral commercial organizations of the city which have become interested In the matter, It was postponed until next week. It was explained to the board by rep resentatives of the company and is also stated in the communication, that the j present specifications for surfacing i streets with asphaltum are such as to . exclude all local ly-fiis. from any of the benefits of such contracts. The specifi cations for the proposed, resurfacing of Spring street may be taken as an ex ample. The following provision is con tained in them: The asphaltic cement shall be composed Of refined natural California solid asphalt and refined natural liquid asphalt, un mixed with any of the products of coat ;ar, residuum of petroleum oil or any other j Inferior bituminous materials of any kind. The use of artificial asphalts or bitumens i ls expressly prohibited. This makes it impossible for Los An geles firms to bid on the work, and it therefore goes to northern companies. The Oil Burning and Supply company claims that its product is as good as that mentioned in the specifications, art! such is its confidence in it that the com pany is willing to guarantee work dor.;. wlth its asphaltum for the same period as that for which the other kinds is guaranteed. The company has interest ed the several leading commercial or ganizations of the city ir. the matter and tbey will assist in the effort to have the specifications charged. The company and these organizations will he repre sented, when the matter is considered at the next meeting of the board of public works. STILL MORE QUESTIONABLE At Least One Signature on the Spring Street Protest Unauthorized The protest which has been filed in the city clerk's office agninst the pro posed resurfacing of Spring street from Temple to Xinth was rendered more questionable than it had be;r, when the several duplicate signatures were dis covered, by a communication which was received by Street Superintendent Drain yesterday. This communication shows that an investigation of all the signa tures may show that some of ihe names were signed without authority by other persons than the owners. The note to Mr. Drain is as follows: "This is to certify that I did not au thorize anyone to sign my name to a protest against the resurfacing of Spring street. I own twenty feet. "FRANK J. PATTISON." Soon after this was received Mr. Drain received the following note, which ex plains itself: "Owing to some misunderstanding in regard to the protest for repaying of Spring street. I would say that after re considering the matter I would like to withdraw my name and am in favor of resurfacing the street. "F. G SCHUMACHER." Mr. Schumacher is the administrator of the Schumacher estate, which owns 108 feet on that street. His action may have the effect of inducing others to withdraw their opposition to the much needeei improvement. It is ihe intention of those interested in having the work done, and this In cludes almost every merchant on Spring street, to take the list of names which appears on the protest and call on each of the persons to ascertain just what their objections to the Improvement are. It is expected that several may be found who, like Mr. Pattison, did not know their names were on the paper until the list was published. A number may be found who are Indifferent on the sub ject and who if the proper effort is mad,' may be induced to change their position and withdraw from the protest. Nothing that can be done to defeat the protest will be left undone before the matter is presented at the meeting of the council Monday morning. The mer chants who rent their places of business from persons whose names appear upon the protest are endeavoring to induct their landlords to change the position they have taken. With the double sig natures, those which were unauthorized andi those that have changed and will withdraw their opposition to the work, there is less than 6UO feet to be over come by the citizens who are desirous of making the street presentable in ap pearance and in good condition for travel. PUBLIC WORKS Boulevard Talk, and Boutine Matters Acted Upon by the Board Yesterday's session of the board of public works was devoted almost en tirely to the consideration of minor street improvements, the petitions for and the protests against which had been referred to that body by the city council It had been expected thai the boulevard matter would again come up and would result in additional debate by those ir, favor of the two routes to Pasadena. But little was said about boulevards, however, and the board took no action Whatever or. that subject. George Rice, representing a number of property own ers in. the San Gabriel valley, appeared and informed the board that should the Adobe road route be decided upon as the route which the board of public works will recommend, work on a new road through to Monrovia connecting with this end of the boulevard would be com menced within, forty-eight hours after tbat decision bad been rendered. He stated that tbe majority of people in the section he represented favored the Adobe road route. Judge R. A. Ling, representing prop erty owners along Downey avenue, ask ed the board to indicate Its probable ac tion with reference to the proposed wid ening of that thoroughfare and connect- ing it with whichever boulevard was to be built. Several persons interested in the Adobe road route appeared and ask ed that some action be taken at once in the matter, so that the- decision of the board might be known. These persons were informed that the board was care fully considering all petitions, protests ard other communications on the sub ject and would report as soon as it was possible for them to render a decision after closely examining all that had been submitted to them. No report will be made before next week and unless the board is satisfied, as to what Is best It will not be made even then. The petition of Occidental college, in wlhch the closing of a street and an. al ley in the Chautauqua tract was re quested, was granted. Some of the col lege buildings are to be erected on what is now platted as a street. The tract is to be improved and made Into a college campus, through which there will be ■ several paths, but no roadway. The protest against the changing of | the name of a portion of Fifteenth street | was filed, there being no proposition be fore the board for any change in the l name of that street. A protest against the proposed Im provement of Toberman street between Fifttenth and Sixteenth was sustained, as it contained the signatures of a ma jority of the interested property owners.. A petition for the widening of the side walk on that square was granted. The matter of the opening of Wilshire boulevard through the West End unl | versify addition, as a public thorough | fare to Hoover street, to the same width • as the other portions of the street, was referred to the city engineer with in structions to prepare the necessary or dinance and. map. This work was one ot the conditions urder which Mrs. Clara R. Shatto donated a tract of land to the city for park purposes and this condi tion will be compiled with. The petition for a cement sidewalk on the west side of Fremont avenue, be tween Third and Fourth streets, was referred to the city engineer to prepare j the necessary ordinance. The protest against the petition for I grading a portion of an alley Tn block D, i Lake-shore tract, by private contract, was sustained. I Owing to the illness of General Man ager Wood of the Los Angeles Railway company, action on the petition to com pel the interested railway companies to complete the-ir portion of the improve ! ment of Third street, between Crocker I street and Santa Fe avenue, was de- Iferred. FOB THEMSELVES ONLY Downey Avenue Property Owners Want a Boulevard of Their Own Another boulevard proposition is to be submitted to the city council, the petition upon which it will be based having been started yesterday after noon. It is not entirely a new plan as to the route to be but it will present some new features to the board of pub lic works, to whom it will be presented It is the request of the property owners along Downey avenue for permission to construct a boulevard of their own, ir respective of other plans for such high ways which may now be under consider ation!. Ever since the boulevard fight for the two different routes proposed, has been on the suggestion to connect Dow ney avenue with one of them in what might be termed a loop has been undier consideration. A, number of the» own ers of property along that thorough fare have been, earnestly at work to se cure some action favorable to the plan. It was thought that the victory of the Adobe road project might carry the Downey avenue proposition with it, but as the Adobe road route is by no means certain of being finally chosen the Dow ney avenue people have decided to do a little work for themselves and let the Adobe road and the Arroyo Seco rout? people settle their differences if they can. A new petition was therefore pre pared in which the council will be asked to let the owners of the property along that avenue build' a boulevard of then own; to permit them to make an assess ment district of their own and to pay for their own boulevard by levied on their property, irrespective of what other routes may be decided upon. What they want is a fine, wide driveway, connecting with whichever of the othe, routes may be selected, and they claim they are willing to pay for it, provided they are not doubly assessed and have to pay for part of the other road also Sixty signa tures wtTe secured to the pe tition yesterday. ANOTHER PROTEST More of the Property Owners Who Oppose the Boulevard Project A numerously signed' protest agains". the proposed widening of Pas adena avenue for boulevard purposes was filed in, the city clerk's office yes terday afternoon. It bears the signa tures of alleged owners of 8608 feet of property, all of whom claim to be op posed to the taking of the property in order to widen the street. The protest states that ten feet each has already been taken off their property and t:> •viden the roadway by taking thirty-five feet additional on each side would "ruin many homes" and cause an expense and loss which could not be afforded. In the same connection Mrs. B. Geit son and I. .Mayo filed communications asking that their names be withdrawn from a former protest against the pro posed widening of Bellevue avenue, which is a link of the proposed Pasadena avenue boulevard STREET MAKING Board of Public Works Desires to Se- cure Plans From Other Cities The matter of placing substantial street markers at street intersections was discussed at length by the mem bers of the board of public works and several other members of the city coun cil yesterday afternoon. This subject has been before the board a number of times ond they have frequently tried to decide just what kind of markers W«r< most suitable. The members areagrecc. thut the best method of markircr th streets ln the business center of the city is by placing the names of the streets in large letters on two corner buildings at street intersections but what ls to be done in the residence district has no; been determined. Several plans have been suggested but the board has ac epted none of them. Almost any kirjj of markings are better than the wood en signs now in use because of the ease LOS ANGELES HERALD. SATURDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 25, 1897 with which these are broken. The erec tion of Iron signs on sections ot pipe meets with the same objection, as it ls believed that the small boy would soon demolish them with stores. A plan that seems to meet with the approval of the board on such streets as new cement sidewalks may hereafter be laid upon, is to stamp the names of the streets In the cement. It ls not improb able that this plan may cause a change to be made in the specifications for Bide walks yet to be built. The streets in Santa Monica are marked in this man ner andi the markings have been found to be indestructible. The plan could not be adapted to streets in which the sidewalks have already been laid, and for such streets some other plan will J have to be devised. The board took no other action inrthe matter yesterday than to decide to ask for plans from persons who are In that business. They will also endeavor to as certain the method now in use in other large cities in the country with a view to adopting some one of them here. CONSTITUTION QUOTED In Support of a Protest Against Street Widening Two protests against the proposed extension of Hoover street between Pico and Sixth streets were addressed to tht city council yesterday. One of them is signed by thirteen property owners who object to the work on the genera! grounds that it is not needed. he T other Is from F. B. Ballerino, who calls attention to the fact that a portion of 1500 feet of ground contains valuable gravel deposits and If this is taken for the purpose of widen ing the street he serves notice that he will demand $15,000 as payment for his property. He cites section 1. article 4, of the United States constitution and section 13, article l,of the California con stitution, in support of his contention that the property cannot be taken, with out payment being made therefor. PETITION WAS CHANGED That Is the Charge Made in a Protest Against Street Work Mrs. M. S. Vandam filed a protest against the acceptance of the work done on Beaudry avenue between First and Second streets, in the office of the city clerk yesterday, in which she makes the charge that'the documents referring to the matter were tampered with. She claims that the petition for the work was changed after the council had acted upon It, and that the change was made by private persons without authority. It is also claimed that no notices were placed on the street before the work was done, as is required by law. She filed a protest before the boarcii of public works without result and now appeals direct to the council. Not to Blame George McClellan, the recently de posed inspector of street sweeping, claims that the blanks he took from the office of the health officer were his own property and he therefore had a right to them. This statement is corroborat ed by the health officials, who say that they did not desire to keep the blanks. As to the matter of mistakes having been made in the reports of street sweep ing due to an erroneous estimate of the number of blocks swept, McClellan had nothing to do with the computations, that having been done before he took the office. Dr. Powers stated yesterdai that he had no desire to find fault with McClellan now that he has been dis missed. Free Water Offered Edward W. Hewitt has petitioned the city council for permission to lay a four inch water main in the central avenue along Highland park from the city lim its. He has already secured a right of way from the board of supervisors to lay the pipe to the city line from Eureka springs. He agrees, in considerations of his request being granted, to furnish free water to the Highland park schot l and also agrees to be responsible for any damages which may be caused by the work. Knows Better Now The r.egro who was made a target of in a First-street saloon a few nigh:r. ago by J. J. Rogers, whose aim, for tunately, proved unsteady, did not ap pear in court yesterday to prosecute his assailant, who had been charged with an assault to kill at the time of his arrest. The police have made an effort to find the witness, but it seems that he has assiduously kept himself cut of sight ever since the night of the row. Under the circumstances there was nothing left to do but dismiss the case against Rog ers and he was turned loose. Rogers says that he won't be so ready with his' gun next time.

A. Filcher, sec- rotary of the state board of trade, to the chamber of commerce, on the sub ject of canaigre cultivation throws cold water upon the hopes of many a small farmer. Mr. Filcher, who has evidently studied up the subject thoroughly, says: "I note tha: quite a number of our California farmers have become Inter ested during the last few years in the subject of canaigre. They have been led to believe that the demand for this product in Germany is brisk, and that the tanners of that country will take at a profit to the grower all we can send them. The comments of the press of this state have led the people to be lieve that this is the situation. While on the other side of the water I took occasion to investigate this subject, and particularly the prospective demand for canaigre la Germany. I learned, some what to my sorrow, that while the de mand there has been brisk and prices good, such is not the case at present. I applied for information on the subject to one of the largest importers of can aigt> in Hamburg and he was kind enough to write me a report on the sub ject, which I append for your benefit and the benefit of those who have gone_ into the business, as follows: " 'This article was Introducedhere and in England first in 1893 from New Mexico or Mexico. The introduction into our continental market was pushed in the most energetic manner. The Tanning Gazette brought the analysis and long articles about the superiority of this new tanning material, and it ls un deniable that for fine leathers the tan ning qualities of the canaigre are real ly very good. The first sales of the canaigre roots (shipped and dried) were made at about 18 to 20 marks per 100 kilos in warehouse here, but very soon tanners refused to continue paying these prices, which were considered much too high. Canaigre containsmuch less tanning acid than dividivi, quebra cho, myrabolanen, volonea, etc., arid ought therefore to be cheaper than these better articles. Business in canaigre came consequently to a stop. What lit tle had arrived here was gradually sold. In England there may still be about 150 tons, for which 4 pounds and 10 shillings was bid. But 5 pounds and 10 shillings per ton was asked. Five pounds and 10 shillings my English friends say, is about the expense on freight, storage, etc., on the stuff, and they did not wanit to sell cheaper as they desired to cover at least their actual expenses. More than 4 pounds and 10 shillings was, how ever, not obtained in Germany, and, therefore, I suppose that canaigre is not an article which your California people will be able to ship to Europe with a view of making money on it. I can only recommend not to send any more canaigre provided a price of 4 pounds and 10 shillings per ton, or 9 marks per 100 kilos ctf. (cost, Insurance and freight) Hamburg net cash will not pay you. Bulky articles of little value cannot stand the expense of so long a voyage as from California to Germany. Should it be possible to make an,extract of the canaigre roots and to ship the tanning acid contained in the roots in the form of extracts it would be quite different. From Argentine a large business is done in quebracho extract. Who knows whether California may not ship canai gre extract? The articles that are driving canaigre to the wall in Germany are. dividivi from Venezuela and Maricaibo, quebracho from Argentina, myrabolanen. from India (Bombay) and volon.ea from Asia Minor. My reason for sending you this In formation is because I have been led to believe that there is more canaigre being planted in Southern California than any other part of the state, and it is only right that your people engaged in this business should know the situa tion in regard to the prospective demand for thi9 product. Besides, our people all over the state who have been led to believe that there is profit in this prod uct ought to be made aware of the tiue situation." "P. B.—l may mention that a mark ls about equal to 25 cents and.that 100kilos are equal to 220 American pounds." Just on top of this warning letter from Mr. Filcher, Secretary Wiggins re ceived an inquiry from New York, from people representing English investors, regarding canaigre and the quantity and quality produced in California. A CONVENTION HALL Combination Structure Proposed and a Committee Appointed The committee appointed by the three commercial bodies to arrange for the building of a suitable convention hall met yesterday in the directors' room of the chamber of commerce. S. B. Lewis was elected chairman and A. B. Cass was made secretary. The committee discussed the various methods of securing a proper convention hall, and a combination building was suggested. In the structure will be room for all the various city organlza- Hons as well as a huge auditorium cap able of seating 8000 people. A special j sub-committee was appointed, consist j ing of Messrs. Klokke, Koepfil and Casa, j whose duty it will be to ascertain what ; organizations in the city will take space iln the proposed building and how much 1 space they will pay for accommodations. Another duty of the sub-committee ls to invite propositions from property own ers in various localities for subsidies! (o the building of a convention hall or com bination structure; to formulate all propositions received and. to report them to the general committee. Among the many organizations which will be In terviewed In regard to occupying space in the proposed building are the cham ber of commerce, the Merchants and Manufacturers' association, board of trade, Friday Morning club, Ruskin Ar; club, Scientific and Historical associ i tion., Pioneers' club and Landmarks club. The committee then adjourned to meet again at the call of the chairman. WHERE WERE THE SPIRITS ? They Allow Their Control to Be Ar rested for Embezzlement The invisible spirits may respond to the control of Medium George Joyceand may assist him in his fortune telling to predict the future and read the past, but they don't seem to be "much pump kin*" when it comes to helping Joyce himself out of his earthly troubles. Joyce has a room fitted up on Spring street between Third and Fourth, con veniently arranged for the accommoda- tlon of the spirits and his other guests— those who wear flesh and bones. Only a few blocks away, on Alain street, pre sides Miss Louise Reese as landlady of a lodging house. Formerly the relations between, the landlady and the fortune teller were of a more friendly nature than they are now, hence the story. Madame Reeso was the possessor of a guitar which she prized far beyond Its intrinsic value. One day she was show ing the instrument to Joyce, who no ticed that two of the strings were brok en, and. remarking that he was some thing of a connoisseur in the art of mending guitars, he generously sug gested that he take the Instrument home and replace the broken strings. His offer seemed kind and was accepted The days passed and lengthened into weeks. No further mention was made of the guitar and Madame Reeso, imagin ing that perhaps the spirits had taken a fancy to the instrument and liked lo twang the strings for the amusement of their master, decided not to be the first to mention its return. A few days ago something happened which made a very decided change ln the relations which had existed between the couple, and a demand for the imme diate return of the guitar was l'nadc. Joyce blandly replied that he no longer had it and that the instrument had de parted from his possession as many as several months ago. In fact be had loaned it to a friend who had taken it away with him to Fresno. When the owner of the instrument was satisfied that she could get possession of her property in no other way she appeared at the district attorney's office and swore to a complaint charging Joyce with embezzlement. A warrant was is sued for his arrest and. this was turned over to Deputy Constable Mugnemi, who served it yesterday. Whether through supernatural offices or other wise the guitar was immediately return ed to the fortune teller and he was able to produce it at almost an Instant's no tice. After reluming the guitar Joyce accompanied the ofnc>r to the police court, w here he paid $5 costs to have the case dropped, which was done, as ths woman did rot care to prosecute it after her property had been returned.
