Santa Monica Officers Do
About as They Please
High-Handed Proceedings of Marshal
Dexter and His Deputies—A
Justice Makes Complaint
The season which has just closed at
Santa Monica has brought that resort
undesirable notoriety through the vis
itation of a gang of card sharps and con
fidence men who operated there extens
ively for several weeks., with what suc
cess a long list of unfortunate "suckers"
can testify. The business of these bunco
men was carried on with the greatest
openness. In fact it may be said of them
that they were absolutely innocent of
any attempt at secrecy. This gambling
and fleecing of victims was in flagrant
violation of law, to be sure, yet these
men even boasted that they did not fear
arrest. The people knew what the con
fidence men were doing and were ac
quainted with the location of the dens
into which the "suckers" were steered.
Visitors to the seaside who went to San
ta Monica heard of the bunco men and
their operations, and yet through all
this the officers there appear never to
have had an inkling of the facts.
AVhether or not the officers really were
densely ignorant of the conditions which
unquestionably existed cannot be stat
ed, but there are those in Santa Monica
unkind enough to say that the officers
were not ignorant of the gamblers'
methods, and, what is more, that the
operations of the card sharps were car
ried on with their full knowledge and
even connivance. Whether this be true
or not, there certainly is a condition of
administration now, in effect at Santa
Monica that would eeem to need rem
An examination of the records in Just
ice T. H. Wells' court shows a state of
affairs in reference to the serving of
warrants which might be made the basis
of some pertinent inquiry by the next
grand jury. For instance. In one case a
warrant of arrest was issued for Edwin
James, December 4, 1896, on a charge of
fast driving. The warrant was turned
over to Marshal G. B. Dexter for service
and he returned it on the 16th Inst., nine
months later, without having made the
arrest and without any explanation why
he had not served It. The following en
try in reference to the matter is found in
Justice Wells' record: "September 16,
1597: The warrant of arrest in this action
which was delivered to the town mar
shal on December 4, 1896, was this day
returned by him to the court without the
date even of its receipt by the marshal
or anything else written thereon."
In reference to this case it may be said
that the complaining witness in the ac
tion was I. A. Willis, who was knocked
down and run over by James on the
night of November 2d, 1896, receiving in
juries which kept him confined to his bed
for several weeks. He swore to the com
plaint charging James with fast driving,
and was anxious to prosecute the case.
The warrant was turned over to Marshal
Dexter, who, according to the language
of the justice of the peace, "pigeon
holed" it. James remained- for some
time in the city and was not arrested.
One day Justice Wells went into the
marshal's office and inquired for a rea
son why the warrant had not been serv
ed, but received no reply.
Several other instances of this kind
shown by the records might be cited.
On the Slst of August a warrant was is
sued by Justice Wells for the arrest of
Frank Rangel on a charge of petty lar
ceny. The complaint was sworn to by
J. M. Brounett, an old soldier. A quan
tity of Brounett's household goods had
been appropriated' by Rangel. Civil ac
tion for their recovery was first brought
and judgment awarded. The goods had
been secreted in the meantime and the
demand for them was met by a Hat re
fusal on the part of Rangel to turn them
over. The petty larceny charge was then
made. Again the warrant was turned
over to Marshal Dexter, but although
Rangel did not take any pains to keep
out of sight he was never arrested.
Brouriett made the following state
ment yesterday in reference to an in
terview which he had with Marshal
Dexter's deputy, W. E. Webb: "I met
Mr. Webb on the street about two weeks
after the warrant was issued and asked
him why he had not arrested. Rangel.
He answered: 'Because I do not want to
arrest him. If you want him arrested
you will have to get somebody else be
sides me to do it.' —
" 'Well, you have the warrant, haven't
you?' I asked.
" 'Yes, I have it,' he answered, 'and
here it is. I will not serve it.'
"I took the warrant and returned It to
the justice's court."
The statement is borne-out by Justice
Wells, who said that Brounett did re
turn the warrant to him and that Officer
Webb has never made any explanation
of his failure to serve It either by a
written notation on the back of the war
rant or otherwise.
As another example of the adminis
tration of the marshal's office, on Sep
tember 8, Wm. Bowen asked for a com
plaint against C. S. Lupton on a charge
of grand larceny. Accordingto the state
ment made when the warrant was Is
sued, Lupton, who is a sewing machine
agent, came to Bowenfs home at Santa
Monica on the day previous to that on
which the complaint was issued. He
found no one at home except Bowen's
14-year-old daughter and the girl's
grandmother, who was sick in bed at the
time. He wanted to trade an old-machine
which he had in his wagon for a new one
which Bowen owned. The girl refused
to trade, whereupon the agent declared
that he would trade anyhow, and pro
ceeded to change the machines. The
young girl was so much intimidated th-il.
she was afraid to offer any resistance to
the action of the bullying agent, but re
ported the matter to her father when he
arrived home. The agent Is said to'tlve
in this city and as Dexter occupies the
thro-cornered position of marshal, cod*-.
stable and deputy sheriff the warrant
was turned over to him. Since then in-
.quiries have been made as to what had
been done In the matter, and Dexter re
plied that the warrant had been sent to
the sheriff's office in Los Angeles for
service, but Sheriff Burr stated yester
day that no warrant for the arrest of
Lupton had been received.
Justice Wells said yesterday: "Marshal
Dexter and his deputies serve warrants
issued from this-court If they feel like
it, otherwise they do not. The law re
quires an officer to make a return of a
warrant in a reasonable length of time,
with a written statement of the reason
why it is returned; but time after time
when warrants from this court have
been furnished the officers they have
either pigeonholed them«r carried them
around In their pockets until the paper
upon which they were written was worn
to shreds without any possible excuse
for not serving them. If thlngscontlnue
at this rate It will become the proper
thing for me to ask the city officers
whether or not they will serve a war
rant on a man before I issue- it. The
state of affairs as it existsand as the rec
ords show certainly could be properly
made a matter of Investigation by the
grand Jury."
Resolutions Regarding the Improve
ment of Their Thoroughfare.

the city of Los Angeles maintained a num
ber of men and the necessary apparatus
for repairing said street and that the
city for ii considerable time kept said street
in repair; that, beginning with the present
street superintendent, the council by his
advice ceased all repairs, and that the pres
ent condltoln of said street is due to said
That, as a remedy for the present con
dition of the paving on Main street, the
city should repair said street as it for
merly did, and that at some future time,
after proper sower connections have been
constructed and the electric wires and
gas and water pipes have been laid In a
manner to connect with our buildings on
said street; that at that time said Main
street should be repaved and accepted by
said city of Los Angeles, as prescribed by
(Signed) J. B. LANKERSHIM,

Lively Scramble for a City
One Wrestles With Agents and Pro
motions, While the Other Makes
Bluecoats Happy
There must be big profits in the fire
hose business, tor at the regular ses
sion of the board of fire commissioners
yesterday morning, at which bids for fur
nishing the city with 5000 feet of that
necessary part of the equipment
for a fire department were exam
ined, fourteen representatives of the
different companies were present to
take care of the bids that had
been submitted by their firms.
The apartments loked more like a hose
supply house than a committee room,
for the table in the center was literally
covere-d with samples of the different
brands, while ranged along the wall were
several fifty-foot sections ready for use.
It was distinctly a hose meeting, that
subject being considered almost to the
exclusion of other business, of which
there was a great deal at hand. The rep
resentatives of the different companies
were given all the time they dgsired to
make speeches and point out the alleged
superiority of the different brands. Un
like former slmillar occasions, there
were no wrangles or threatened fights.
Of course, each man convinced. (?) the
board that his particular hose was per
fect and that all other makes were not
worth purchasing, and! there- was so
much or this conviction that at the closs
of the speeches the board! took the mat
ter under advisement, and will awardi
the contract after consultation with the
supply committee of the city council.
The bids that had- been submitted for
supplying the needed hose were opened at
the last meeting of the council, and were
published at the time, and the -exam
ination of them by the commission was
merely for the purpose of giving the
members an opportunity to examine the
different samples. If any commissioner
was wiser as the result of that examina
tion he did not admit it, for to them
there was a marked similarity in all of
the samples. To the remarks of the
representatlvesof the bidding companies
the commission paid the most respectful
attention, and those gentlemen did- not
lose the opportunity to make the best
presentation possible.
The proceedings were enlivened early
in the session by the discovery of a mis
take In oneof the'blds and its consequent
withdrawal from the field. It was
while the representative of the "Para
gon" brandi was delivering his little
speech on the subject of hose-generally
and on the excellence of that brandi in
particular. He was making a goo» im
pression when the mayor asked, the very
natural question: "What Is the-price of
your hose?" T T hls, perhaps, led to the
belief that he was about to get the con
tract then and there, and he replied
that the price- was 80 cents per foot.
"But," quoth the mayor, "this bid
makes it 90 cents."
Sure enough, there it was on paper, In
black and white, "90 cents." The young
lady typewriter'who had copied the pro
posal had struck the 9 key instead of the
8 and the prospects of that company se
curing the contract went glimmering
It was admitted: that that brand of hose
is one of the best on the market and somt
of it wouldi doubtless have been pur
chased, for the commission looked upon
it with favor, but the mistake could not
then be rectified, in spite of the pleadings
of the agent, who offered to have a let
ter of explanation written at once. He
departed, while the other bidders offered
their condolences and. shed) alligator
tears and laughed in their sleeves over
the defeat of one of their most dangerous
competitors, which gave all of the others
better chances.
The secretary of the Merchants' and
Manufacturers' association evidenced
an interest in the letting of the contract
for he presented a communication
signed by himself as secretary, calling
the attention of the board to section
3247 of the political code which directs
all such bodies in letting contracts for
public supplies to favor California prod
ucts, all other things being equal. This
communication was filed. For nearly
an hour the hose matter engaged the at
tention, ot the board. The agents then
withdrew leaving their samples.
In Chief Moore's weekly report he
gave the result of the recent examina
tion at the No. 8 engine house whicbhas
been already published. The report was
approved. The chief called attention to
the fact that the contract for furnishing
feed to the department had expired and
asked that a new oontract be entered
into. He was Instructed to prepare the
necessary document and submit it to
, the board. Several accidents had hap
pened In the department during the last
month. One was the injury of a horse!
while responding to an alarm. The ani
mal is again in service. A full report
ot the accident which befei Captain T. J.
McDonald on the 23d Inst, was filed. It
stated that the injured man was re
covering and would resume his duties
about October 1.
The applications of Bailey A Schmltz
Bros, to use and store fuel oil at 1053,
Alameda street; of the Un.lon Oil com
pany for permission to pump oil for a
few days at the Buena Vista street rail
road crossing, and of Joseph Carlisle &
Sons to operate a wood working plant at
Fourth street and Santa Fe avenue,
were granted.
Horace W. Tllton filed an application
for a position as engineer In the fire de
partment, which was placed on file.
In accordance with the provisions of an
ordinance recently adopted by the city
council providing for the appointment of
three additional hosemen and three lad
dermen, Chief Moore reported that only
the first three were needed now. He
recommended and the board approved
the following promotions:
John Landell, callman No. 3 engine, to
be hoseman.
Charles Groetsenger, callman No. 1
engine, same.
S. Queirolo, callman No. 1 engine,
Carl G. Miller, who made the best per
centage at the recent examination, was
recommended for appointment as per
manent fireman. The recommendation
was approved. He will be assigned to
duty at the quarters of the No. 1 chemi
cal engine.
The board then adjourned to meet at
the call of the mayor for the letting of
the hose contract.
Special Officers Promoted to Perma
nent Positions
Ten policemen were elected at a spe
cial meeting ot the board of police com
missioners yesterday afternoon, held
for that purpose. The election was for
the purpose of Ailing the positions cre
ated by an ordinance adopted by the city
council Monday. It had been supposed
ever since the appointment of the ten
special officers several months ago that
they would be the ones chosen for per
manent positions when this electlonwas
held; in fact, that was the understand
ing In the police department.
Nine of these specials were so elected
and for the tenth position, the board se
lected a special appointed as such more
than a year ago. The names of the new
officers are as follows:
G. J. Broadhead, G. A. Briest, P. H.
Murray, A. W. Murray, G. J. Roller, G.
W. Rosso, B. R. Randolph, A. M. Wilson,
T. H. Zlegler, G. E. Loomls.
All of them except the last mentioned
have been serving as specials for sev
eral months Loomis is an old "special,"
having been appointed nearly a year
ago. J. W. Green, who has been serving
as a "special" since June, was not ap
pointed, but the reason why was not
The board had had, the matter under
consideration for some months, and
since it was known that the election was
to be held they requested Chief Glass to
make a report as to the capabilities of
each man. These reports were exam
ined yesterday in the mayor's office by-
Commissioners Wyman, McLaln and
Preuss. Mr. Gibbon was absent. As
soon as the examination of the chief's
reports was completed the commifision
ers met and elected those mentioned.
The proceedings did not consume five
The matter of erecting stalls for the

Report of the Board of Health Com
mittee Will Fully Provide for It
The committee of the board of health
which has had under consideration the!
matter of the supply of meats to this
city, will at the next meeting of the
board file a report which will go into de
tails on the subject.
The members of this committee have
been quietly making another personal
investigation of the matter, and in their
report recommendations will be made i
to the city council that an ordinance be
passed which will make the sale of
meats unlit for food- almost impossible
and will provide a severe penalty for
Its violation. The disclosures made by
the committee at a recent meeting of the
board have been found to be only a part
of the truth and the evil is really worse
than they made it out. The steps that
have been taken to put a stop to the
sale of diseased meat have caused some
butchers to be more careful in making
their purchases and also been themeans
of the thorough cleaning of some of the
slaughter houses. The city council will
co-operate with the board in the matter
and within a few weeks it is expected
an j additional deputy will be appoint
ed in the health department whose duty
will alone be the inspection of meats.
The Taats of the Health Officer Show
Mora Care by Dairymen
The milk tests which have recently
been made by Health Officer Powers,
and the reports on the matter that he
has made from time to time, have re
sulted in a much better quality of milk
being delivered to consumers in this
city. The health officer spent nearly the
whole day yesterday in carefully testing
samples which had been secured from
the dairies and restaurants of tho oity.
Out of thirty-six tests of milk secured
from dairies he found only three which
fell below the standard, and these were
only slightly below. His efforts to pre
vent the sale of a poor quality of milk
will not be spasmodic, but the work will
be continued so that there will be no re
turn to the practice of diluting the milk
which was formerly resorted to by some
dealers. The work has already been pro
ductive of excellent results.
New Fire Alarm Boxes
Chief of Fire Department Moore has
Issued a new official alarm card, show
ing the location of ail the fire alarm box
es In the city. Since the last card was
Issued eight additional boxes have been
placed In service at the following points:
No. 96, Sentous and Eleventh streets;
135, Amelia and Ducommun streets; 18G,
East Jefferson and Wadsworth streets;
237, Michigan avenue and Soto streets:
238, East Third and Mott streets; 257,
Bernardo and. Yale streets; 342, Hoover
and Twenty-fourth streets; 354, Loma
Drive and Gravilla street. The new
cards may be obtained by applying to
Chief Moore.
Protected by Awnings
The windows of the office of the city
engineer have been supplied with awn
ings. The improvement will make the
office much more comfortable to the
engineers' assistants, as Ihe rooms are
exposed to the sun's rays all day long.
Will Not Benefit Them
A number of owners of property on
Sixth street west of Loma Drive have
protested against their being included
in the assessment district formed for
the purpose of paying for the work con
templated on Sixth street. They claim
that their property is too remote from
the place where the work is to be done
for them to derive any benefit from' it.
and they therefore object to being as
sessed for it.
Too Deep a Cut
D. G. Peck filed In the city clerk's of
fice yes'erday afternoon a protest
against the proposed change of grade of
West Sixth street from Fremont to
Blxel street. He claims that by the
change a cut of thirteen feet will be
made in front of his property and tha'
his sewer connections will therefore be
Butchers Organize
The retail butchers of Los Angeles
have formed an association. So f3r
about eighty have signed the member
ship roll. The claim is made that the
Increase in the wholesale price of meats
has compelled them to do so, and while
the advance Is about 20 per cent, It is
the intention to give better service to
their patrons. The new'schedule does
not go Into effect until next week.
Birthday Celebration
Mr. George E. Loomls, who was yes
terday promoted from a special to the
regular police force, celebrated the
event and his birthday at the same
time last evening with a party at his
residence, 635 East Washington street.
A large number of friends assembled to
congratulate Mr. Loomls, and a social
evening was enjoyed by all.

thing so perfectly located as Hotel del Coroa
ado. Perhaps the nearest approach to it IS
Old Point Comfort. Our rooma open dlreetlj»
to the sea, and we have visited every accessible
spot visible from our windows, including tho
old light bouse, the Portuguese fishing Tillage,
whlcu is the harbor for tho twenty tiny sella
we see standing bravely seaward each morn*
lng, the Theoaophists' Home, aniaway to tho
extreme point in the opposite direction tho
monument marking the Mexican boundary.
My niece also sailed over with a party of young
friends to the islands outside. She has become
Suite an expert swimmer, and dives very pre**
ly, all acquired since coming here.
I have just heard from our dear friends, tho
G's, that they are coming out to pass the wts>*
ter here at the hotel, and I have bed oof
lovely sunny rooms reserved for them. Please
advise Mr. 6— of this when he calls on you.
Very sincerely yours, A. Z.
