To Be Repaired and Sur=
faced With Asphalt
Another Batch of Fire Hose Bids.
The Street Sweeping; Contractor
Loses a Demand
The bridge committee ot the council
spent yesterday afternoon in Inspecting
tho bridges of the city to ascertain just
what repairs are needed on each. Ac
companying them was Councilman
Mathuss. They left the city hall at
1:30 oclock and within live minutes
thereafter the whole party narrowly
escaped arrest. Councilman Haker was
driving, and in the same seat with him
was Councilman Nlckell. In coming
down the Temple street hill, at Spring
street, the brakes on the buggy would
not hold and the speed was greater than
the members of the party noticed. As
they approached the intersection Police
man Shannon rushed out into the street
and, with club upraised, commanded
the party to "stop in the name of the
law." They stopped, of course, for then'
was nothing else to do, and before In
quiry could be made as to what was the
matter the officer, in a dramatic man
ner, shouted: "Yoz have no business,
at all, at all, comin' down tha hill loike
thot." He was assured that tho speed
was unavoidable by the now frightened
councilmen, and was about to give them
another lecture, when he saw who it
was he was talking to. His demeanor
changed instantly, and with as correct
a military salute as a regular could
give he retired and allowed the party
to proceed.
The examination of the bridges re
vealed that some of them were in an
almost dangerous condition in places.
It is the intention of the council to have
all the bridges coated on the roadways
with asphalt, and the inspection was for
the purpose of ascertaining just whai
work of strengthening the structures
was necessary before the asphalt is
placed on them. Each of the bridges
was carefully examined and the places
where repairs were most needed were
pointed out. It will be necessary to
lower one end of the State street bridge
and to place new concrete piers under it.
The total work of repairing will not, It
is thought, exceed $5000.
To Consult As To Ways and Means in
the City's Water Suit
In order that some idea might be had
of what the nature of the expert testi
mony in the case of the city against
tile Orantnl .fJl'i cnvyaHMMiy is to Tie
when that case comes to trial in Feb
ruary, and in order that that testimony
might be prepared, a meeting of a num
ber of engiuetdEs w ijji tjjc finance com
mittee of the c|ty council whs.held yes
terday morning. In oudditlon to City
Attorney Dunn and the members of the
committee there were present Messrs.
Fred Baton, Furcell, Schuyler and Koe
blg, the latter of San Bernardino, Tin
conference was brief and the conclu
sions reached were of course not made
public as publicity would defeat the
very purpose of the conference. The
case is one in which the ownership by
the city of the water system is the ob
ject the attainment of which is sought.
The trial is set for February 23,1895, and
will consume several days.
If there were money enough In the
city treasury to pay for the two addi
tional Are engines the purchase of
which was recommended at the last
meeting of the board of lire commission
ers, there are a suflloient number of
members of the council who would fa
vor the matter to make the purchase
certain. The official report of the pro
ceedings of the board was filed in the
clerk's office yesterday and will go to
the council tomorrow. The disposition
most probable is a reference to the
finance committee and that committee
will have to report that the expenditure
at present is out of the question. It is
conceded that the new engines arc need
ed, but there is no money to pay for
Street Sweeping Contractor Loses a
Demand Made on Precedent
For a time there was a prospect of a
repetition'of the clash of a week ago in
the regular meeting of the council com
mittee on finance yesterday between the
street sweeping contractor nnd the
members' of that committee. When
Clerk Reed of the health department
filed his report of pavement swept and
approved during the week it was found
that one item of $20 for cleaning up
gravel from the streets had been re
turned to the committee without ap
proval. The work for which this charge
was made for taking up the dirt and
gravel that had been washed down on
the pavement from the unimproved por
tions of the adjoining streets by the
rain. Mr. Reed stated that no one had
instructed the contractor to do this
work, which In his opinion was the duty
of the street superintendent to care for.
He had therefore declined to approve
the demand. In this the committee up
held him and the demand was not al
lowed. The contractor was inclined to
contest the matter until the reason for
the action was explained, when it was
admitted that he had received no orders
for that kind of work. He had based
his demand upon precedent.
The Rate Fixed for Fire and School
Bond Issues
If the action of the finance committee
is approved by the council tomorrow,
the rate of interest on the proposed is
sue of school and fire department bonds
will be four instead of four and one-half
per cent, as the ordinance which will be
presented now provides. At the regu
lar meeting of the committee yesterday,
although the matter had not been re
ferred to it, the recommendation was
made to the council that the rate of in
terest on the bonds be made four per
The ordinance Is now complete, the
lists of election officers having been in
serted yesterday afternoon, That it
will pass tomorrow is certain and as
the several members of the council are
familiar with Its provisions it will not
be referred to any committee nnd may
not even be read. Between now nnd tbe
time It is presented the date of the
election will be inserted and, as was
stated yesterday, will probably be made
December 7. Immediately after the
approval of the ordinance by the mayor
the city clerk will prepare for the elec
tion by having the ballots printed and
the required notices of election posted.
The City Will Not Pay the Entire
Expense of Survey
While the finance committee, in whose
hands was placed the matter of provid ■
ing for the payment of the survey for
the Pasadena boulevard, is desirous of
having the work done as soon as possi
ble, it was stated yesterday at a meet
ing of that committee that no great ex
pense would be borne by the city in the
matter. The question of how much the
municipality would spend came up and
it was suggested by certain interested
persons that the survey be made at onoo
and that the city stand the cost of the
same. It was stated by members of the
committee that the matter had already
cost $450, and if the city paid the whole
amount of the additional surveys it
might cost as much more. The com
mittee decided to recommend that the
city engineer furnish a description of the
property which will have to be taken in
opening tho boulevard, but no recom
mendation that the city bear all the ex
pense of making the total survey will
be made.
Another Batch to Be Opened Up on
Tho first of the bids for furnishing the
Are department with 5000 feet of hose
under the new advertisement were filed
yesterday in the clerk's office. There
was nothing about them to indicate
from whom they were received, as they
were of course sealed. It Is expected
that there w ill be at least eight bids in
before the proposals are examined at
the meeting of the council Monday. The
fight ocer the matter will be gone ever
again at the next meeting of the board
of tire commissioners and it promises to
be much more lively than to t under the
first proposals for this same contract.
All the bids were thrown out then be
cause the advertisement had not con
tained the notice that preference would
be given to California made goods, all
other things being equal. The repre
sentatives of the companies in the
fight have remained in the city since
the first bids were opened, and all of
them are as determined as ever to land
the contract if they can.
Fumigating Outfit Needed
Ar entirely new fumigating outfit Is
badly needed In the health department,
and it is probable that the old one will
soon be replaced with a new and mod
ern one. The prevalence of diphtheria
in various parts of the city up to a few
weeks ago made the use of this appliance
necessary almost every day, and while
It is not so often used at present it is
acolrcd to hu.-.> M ttpimi-aXUS wniCll In
certain to give the best results.
A Valid Claim
When, several weeks ago, Charles Mc-
Farland petitioned the city council for
a cancellation of a certain tax sale in
which a portion of his property was in
volved, the matter was referred to the
city clerk for investigation. That offi
cial will report to the council that the
claim is valid as the sale was due to
double assessment of the property.
Tax Sale Collections
At the meeting of the council tomor
row the city clerk will file a report of
the collections that have been made In
that office as fees paid in the redemption
of tax sales, etc. The total amount col
lected is $69.40.

The Foxy Four Looking for a Fifth
Vote With Which to Turn
Things Upside Down
If only one more vote could he secured
bs' four members of the city council
there would be lots of fun at tomorrow's
session of that body, for there is on foot
another scheme which has for its ob
ject the official decapitation of certain
city officials. It will be remembered that
an unsuccessful attempt was made sev
eral weeks ago to remove Clerk Heed
of the health department, but because
of the inability of the four members to
induce a fifth to side with them the
scheme fell through. Since then it has
been allowed to rest quietly and no men
tion was made of it in the city hall ex
cept by way of comment, for nearly
three weeks.
Yesterday, however, the four were
again in search of a fifth vote and the
purpose for which they wanted it was
not alone the removal of Reed. A much
more elaborate plan had been arranged.
Of course the members of the quartet
would not talk of the matter, and one of
them even denied that there was any
plan on foot for the removal of any per
son or to secure any change whatever in
the city government, but from another
member, not. of the four, but of the re
maining five of the councilmen, it was
learned that he had been approached
and asked to side with them in a matter
the exact nature of which was not di
vulged because he refused so suddenly
and emphatically that the others did not
let out their entire secret.
It is understood that the health officer
himself was one of those whose official
heads were wanted. Another matter
which, it Is rumored, the quartet desired,
is the reorganization of the council.
There was still another move which was
to be attempted if the fifth necessary vote
was secured, but what It was they
guarded so closely that even those of the
councilmen who are not in the quartet
were unable to tell. Certain it is that
the needed vote will not be secured this
Del Conte's Italian Opera company
last night concluded a most enjoyable
season at the Los Angelep theater with
a line performance of "II Trovatore," in
which Collenz, Mazzi, Franeesconi and
Fanton added more laurels to their
wreaths of fame. The great tenor was
in splendid voice and achieved a ver
itable triumph, he and Mazzi being
treated to a tremendous ovation after
the Miserere, which was repeated and
was again grandly rendered; Collenz,
whose benefit it was, introduced after
the second act the line romanza from
"Forze del Destlno," which displayed
the resources of his noble voice to great
At the matinee "La Traviata" was
produced. While the company was evi
dently unfamiliar with the work and
there was much to find fault with,
many of the enchanting numbers were
finely rendered. Vlcini once more com
pletely captured the audience by her
naivete and grace and sang the difficult
music with excellent skill. Agostini
was evidently tired out, and little won
der after his splendid effort of the prev
ious night in "La Favorita." Cioni was
as good as ever.
Adios Italianos! The memory of your
sweet singing will long linger with us.
