IN A BAD WAY
Protective Association of
Gas Consumers
.THE CHECK RACKET AGAIN
QUEER NOTION OF A LANDLORD
AGAINST HIS TENANT
An Ex-Saloon Man Arrested on a
Charge of Trying to Defraud
Els Creditors
The suit of Dr. W. H. Smith against
the Gas Consumers' Protective nssocla
-1 tlon. which has been on trial for several
Xdays In Department three of the superior
{■court, has been submitted on briefs.
■•The Gas Consumers' Protective associa
tion Is an Incorporated concern, whose
w principal place of business Is in this city.
I' Between May and August Dr. Smith ad
' vanced $425.20 to the association, which
was to be repaid with Interest. The as
sociation also subscribed three notes for
r 'LIsSWTi hTTn hi of Geo. I* Rockwell,
► Vflfch the latter indorsed to Smith.
No part of any of these amounts has
ever been paid to the plaintiff by the de
fendant corporation, says Dr. Smith; but
the association claims that, on the con
trary, It has fully discharged its obliga
tions to him with reference to the bor
rowed money. The drawing of the notes
aggregating $750 was admitted. The de
fendant corporation contended that
Smith was and is the treasurer of the as
sociation, and Rockwell one of the bond
holders, and that the latter was sent to
San Francisco to purchase from Geo. T.
Gaden a large quantity of gas-burners,
checks, governors, etc., valued at $19,-
C 59.50, which he sold he ob
tained for $6500. The company
gave Mr. Rockwell a number of
notes to the above amount, which It was
agreed he should indorse, to pay Gaden.
But, so the association alleged, the pur
chase price paid to Gaden Was still con
siderably below $6500, although Rock
well so represented lt, and he turned over
the three notes mentioned in the suit to
the treasurer. Dr. Smith, properly In
dorsed, so that they might both profit
by dividing this amount between them
selves, to the detriment of the balance of
the stockholders.
The Gas Consumers' Protective asso
ciation, whose capital stock consists of
$250 shares of tho par value of $100 each,
Claims that Dr. Smith has subscribed
for twenty shares, on which he paid only
$500, and now it demands the balance of
$1500. This Is denied by Treasurer Smith,
who admits that, while he put his name
down for twenty shares at first, he made
a mistake and subsequently reduced his
amount on the subscription list, with the
consent of the other incorporators, to ten
shares.
When the Ges Consumers' Protective
association incorpc rated in March, 1896,
r It ieemod to have a bright future before
' It; but it was not long before it clashed
with the Los Angeles Lighting company,
which did not approve of interference.
The case was taken to the courts, where
Judge Shaw gave a decision In favor of
the gas company against the protective
association. Next Attorney John T.
Jones, who had been counsel for the cor
poration, attached the stock and the
fixtures-for fees. That and the Injunc
tion combined to reduce the Gas Con
sumers' Protective association to a con
dition of Innocuous desuetude, and Dr.
Smith's suit has not aided to boom the
Stock to any great extent.
HOOKSTRATEN SWINDLED
A Cigar Man Gets Caught on a Worth
less Check
F. Hookstraten, the proprietor of the
Cigar stand at the corner of Mott alley
and Third street, applied for advice yes
terday afternoon at the district attor
ney's office.
It Is sold that a few days ago John W.
Bowers, who was once upon a timeclqrk
at the Mining exchange, formerly In the
Henne building on Third street, who
owed Hookstraten $5, called to square
his debt. He had no money, but pre
sented a check for $19.45 drawn in favor
of M. C. Craig upon the East Side bank,
and signed to W. L. Smith 1 . U was in
dorsed in the name of Craig, and Bow
ers said that Mr. Smith was O.K.
Upon these representations Hookstat
en, who had not sufficient money In the
till, called upon Al Levy, the oyster man
and restaurateur, to cash the check,
which he did. It was returned by the
bank yesterday, marked "No account."
The name of W. L. Smith does not ap
pear in the directory, and Mr. Bowers
seems to have left for parts unknown.
A LANDLORD'S NOTION
Wanted a Tenant Arrested for a
Strange Case of Embezzlement
A man applied for a warrant yester
day to have his tenant arrested for em
bezzling fl, but he did not get it. His
complaint, as he explained It in the dis
trict attorney's office, was ridiculous in
the extreme, and Is on a par with a quan
tity of other such mare's-nests to which
the deputies have to listen. He said that
he had rented a house to a man for $12
per month, including water, which was
at that time $1.00 monthly. To make

things easier for himself, the landlord
suggested that the tenant pay for the
water to the company directly and give
him the balance, $10.50, each month. This
arrangement worked satisfactorily until
the landlord discovered that over five
months ago the water rates had been
reduced to $1.30 per month, and that dur
ing all that time his tenant had held out
for himself the 20 cents thus saved. In
five months this made $1, and because he
wouldn't give up, Mr. Landlord was go
ing to have the law of him. Deputy Dis
trict Attorney Willis emphatically said,
"Nit!" at which the complainant tore
out of the office, very wroth.
IS IN TROUBLE
An Ex-Saloon Man Charged With
Cheating a Creditor
George B. Taylor of 1417 Highland av
enue was arrested on Wednesday night
on a warrant issued from Justice
Young's court, but released upon giving
ball In the sum of $1000. The Justice set
the examination of Taylor for January
sth at 10:30. The crime alleged to have
been committed by the defendant Is a
high misdemeanor. The complaining
witness is A. W. Lewis, who says that
Taylor on December 23d sold his
property and concealed the proceeds,
the intent to defraud the Arm of F.
Chevalier & Co. of San Francisco, one of
his creditors, out of $122.88.
Until within a few days Taylor
was the proprietor of the saloon adjoin
ing the Los Angeles theater, and he
sold out at that time to Henry Campbell.
He claims that his business has been a
losing one ull ulong, and that fur from
having concealed any proceeds of the
sale, he Is even unable to collect debts
due him.
New Suits
A petition for letters of administration
to the estate of J. B. Hannlninn, de

Mrs. Pease in Peace
Mrs. Mary A. Pease was granted a di
vorce yesterday morning from William
Belmont Pease, who deserted her after
a honeymoon that lasted just six months.
The parties were married early In 1896.
In October Mr. William Belmont Pease

that he was going. He went east and
never returned. Judge Smith Signed the
decree, the grounds being desertion and
non-support.

AN INSANE WOMAN
Slaps a Conductor's Face and Pulls
His Hair
Isabella Pegan was arrested at the
Parker house on East Fifth street yester
day morning on a charge of insanity. The
complaint was Issued at the instance of
F. T. Anderson, a street railway con
ductor.
The woman suffers from the hallucina
tion that everyone Is talking against her
and calling her a thief. She imagines that
the conductors on street cars particularly
are her constant and unrelenting enemies
and that they are always maligning her.
.About a week ago she went to the Los
Angeles Electric Railway company's
office on Central avenue to make com
plaint against some of the employes.
Seeing Conductor Anderson in the wait
ing room she attacked him like a fury,
pulling his hair and scratching his face.
Once before she had come to the office
to make a complaint and had been
forcibly ejected. Anderson Immediately
filed the Insanity complaint ugalnst the
woman but owing to her leaving the city
she could not be found. Yesterday she
returned and Officer Fowler, learning
of her presence, placed her under arrest.
The woman was once an Inmate of the
insane asylum at Stockton but was re
leased. For a time she lived with her
brother in Pasadena but several months
ago he got the Klondike fever and left
her alone. Since then she has been work
ing as a domestic In families when she
could secure a place. Owing to her pe
culiarities shu never remained at one
place but a short time.

A DARK HORSE
Captures the School Board
Vacancy
C. J. KUBACH WAS CHOSEN
ELECTED BY A STRICT PARTY
VOTE OE REPUBLICANS
Park Commissioners Decide to Reduce
Expenses to Prevent a Deficit.
City Hall News
Christian J. Kubach, a well known
general building- contractor who resides
at 419 East Seventh street, was elected
a member of the board of education by
the city council yesterday to fill the va
cancy caused by the resignation of J.
P. Adams, who until recently repre
sented the Seventh ward In the board.
The election was only to secure to that
ward a representative In the board un
til the special election to be held early
In February to All the place until the
next general municipal election. This
action was taken ut an adjourned ses
sion of the city council decided upon at
the last regular meeting of that body.
Ever since last Monday, when It was
decided to fill the vacancy, there had
been much skirmishing among the Re-
publican element In the council to se
cure a candidate who would be accept
able to all of the members of that party.
Up to Wednesday night no such candi
date had been found. Several names
were suggested, but objection was made
by one member or another until at the
eleventh hour Mr. Kubach was men
tioned. It was agreed that, if he would
accept the place, the Republican major
ity in the council would support him. He
was called upon at his home Wednesday
night by a delegation of councllmen and
asked If he would have the place. He
asked until yesterday morning to con
sider the matter. Early In the day he
communicated with one of the Repub
lican members and stated that he would
allow his name to be used.
There were two other known aspi
rants to the position. A. M. Bragg's
name had been presented to the council
by petition at the last regular meeting
and since that time he has been de
clared to be the regular Democratic
nominee for the place at the coming
special election. A petition had also
been presented asking the council to
elect E. L. Grubb to the place.
The council assembled shortly after 10
oclock and several matters of compara
tively minor importance were disposed
of first. Mr. Ashman was not In his
seat at the opening of the session and
when the other business had been dis
posed of and the time came for the elec
tion he was sent for, as lt was desired
to have all the members present, and es
pecially Mr. Ashman, the representa
tive of the Seventh ward. After his ar
rival there was a delay of several min
utes. All of the members knew what
they intended to do, but none of them
wanted to open the mill. Even when
President Silver repeatedly asked;
"What is your further pleasure, gentle
men?" there were several minutes' si
lence.
Councilman Ashman finally broke the
Ice by moving that the election of a
member of the board of education be
entered Into, which motion prevailed.
He then placed the name of A. M. Bragg
In nomination. Mr. Baker nominated C.
J. Kubach and as no others were men
tioned the nominations closed.
The vote was taken at once and was as
follows: For Bragg: Ashman, Grlder
and Nlckell, Democrats, and Hutchison,
Populist. For Kubach: Baker, Blan
chard, Mathuss, Toll and Silver. Presi
dent Silver declared Kubach elected and
the clerk was Instructed to officially
notify him of his election.
Prior to the election a petition was re
ceived from O. T. Johnson calling the
attention of the council to the dusty con
dition of the streets in the business cen
ter of the : city late In the afternoon and
suggesting a modification of the order of
the council that no sprinkling be done
after JI p.m. The matter was referred
to th Superintendent of Btreet sprinkling
with Instructions to use his discretion in
the matter.
A petition of the Sunset Telephone and
Telegraph company for permission to
erect tai les and wires in certain parts of
the city approved aa to form by the city
attorney wbb granted.
THE NEW SCHOOL DIRECTOR
Mr. Kubach will qualify today and will
take his seat as a member of the board
LOS ANGELES HERALD t FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 31, 1897
of education at the annual meeting of
that body Monday night. At this meet
ing he will be called upon to vote for a
chairman of the board who shall serve
In that position until the next board
goes Into office. There will be other mat
ters of equal Importance to be considered
at this meeting of the board as Its future
policy for the remainder of Its term of
office depends largely upon the result of
that meeting.
The new member of the school board
Is one of the best known residents of the
Seventh ward. He is a Republican and
has from time to time taken a fairly ac
tive part In the affairs of that party In
ward and city conventions. In his busi
ness as a general building contractor he
has built several Important business
blocks In this city, the Henne block being
among them. He Is said to be worth be
tween $75,000 and $100,000 and possesses
an excellent business and personal repu
tation. He will probably be the nominee
of his party at the special election to be
held In February, but as the Seventh
ward Is strongly Democratic the chances
of Mr. Bragg's success then are consid
ered excellent.
In talking yesterday of hlselertlon, Mr.
Kubach said: "The selection of the Coun
cil comes In the way of a surprise to me.
I was not spoken to in regard tn standing
for the election until Wednesday night,
when some of my warmest friends urged
me to allow the use of my name. I was
averse to the Idea at first, being a very
busy man and without any political as
pirations whatever. I neither declined
nor agreed to stand for the nomination.
On consideration, however, I shall ac
cept the nomination and trust that such
ability as I possess may be of some bene
fit to the schools of the city.
"There are men who may be entirely
successful in their own business ventures
who might prove to be great failures If
placed In charge of public business. I
shall have five or six weeks between the
present time and the regular election In
this ward to test myself in this regard,
and if I And that I am not the man for
C. J. KUBACH
The New School Director
the work; I' shall certainly decline fur
ther service. It strikes me, however,
that If a successful business man houT
estly strives to do his best in a public
j position, and If he exercises common
sense in his administration, he should
be successful in almost any line."
Mr. Kubach said further that he had
children of his own In the public schools
and took great Interest In the conduct of
education in the schools. He also re
marked that there must be a complete
change In the workings of the School
Board from the policy that has prevailed.
"I should refuse to associate with men
who I believed were dishonestly en
gaged," said he, in conclusion.
PARK FUNDS RUNNING LOW
Special Meeting Held to Provide for
the Expected Deficiency
A special meeting of the board of park
commissioners was held yesterday af
ternoon and for more than an hour the
members tried to devise the best means
of securing from the various park funds
sufficient funds to maintain the work
that has been done at Elyslan park.
More than a month ago it was called to
the attention of the board that the
finances were running low and that un
less something was done there would be
no money with which to work on the
parks during the latter part of the pres
ent fiscal year. All park employes were
then put on three-quarter time and sev
eral of the teams were taken off. Even
with this reduction of expenses it was
found that there would not be enough
money In the Elyslan park fund to main
tain the work there.
It was not the purpose of the. commis
sion to make any large improvements
there, but so much has already been
done that a force of men Is required to
keep the completed work In proper con
dition. The monthly report of the park
superintendent was filed with the board
and Superintendent Gary stated that
$3000 would be needed. The expense at
the park at present Is $1042 per month,
and if this was kept up for the remain
der of the year the toial would be $6252.
which is more than would be available.
He said that two teams and ten men
would be needed there, but how to pay
them with the present fund was a ques
tion for the commission to decide.
It was agreed that it would be neces
sary to transfer certain amounts from
the other park funds, but when it came
to doing this there arose much differ
ence ot opinion among the members.
Propositions and suggestions were made
without number. It was first proposed
to transfer a portion of the money now
to the credit of the Hollenbeck park,
but as that Is In Commissioner Work
man's ward, he interposed objections
and pointed out that the money would
be necessary to complete certain exten
sive systems of piping there. When
the Sunset park fund was mentioned Mr.
Teed objected and at the mention of
Westlake park and Its fund Commis
sioner Waters had something to say and
said It. Mr. Workman suggested that
the deficit in Elyslan park be made up
by the transfer of amounts from all
the funds proportionate to their else, but
this was not approved because some of
the funds had very little to their credit.
Commissioner Griffith secured the
adoption of a motion to transfer from
other funds $1500 for work' on Elyslan
park. The commission then continued
Its efforts to decide from which funds
this money was to come. Superintend
ent Garey opposed the suggestion to
touch the nursery fund, declaring that
that Is one of the most Important of all
the funds. It was finally decided to rec
ommend to the city council that the fol
lowing transfers be made: Nine hun
dred dollars from the Echo park fund,
$300 from the Hollenbeck park and $300
from the nursery fund. Later it will be
necessary to make other transfers for
the same purpose.
Superintendent Garey was ordered by
resolution to reduce the force of men
tn his employ so as to make the ex
penses conform as nearly as possible
with the present condition of the park
finances. This means that every man
who can possibly be spared will be dis
charged and the force will be greatly re
duced.
The whereabouts of the chalngang
were Inquired into and the commission
was reminded of the promise by the
board of public works and the city
council that that gang should be placed
at the disposal of the commission to
make certain repairs at Hollenbeck park
as soon as certain work on Downey av
enue was completed. Mr. Workman
stated that tho gang must have been em
ployed on Downey avenue for fifteen
years, for he had had them placed there
fifteen years ago when he was a mem
ber of the city council. The secretary
wns Instructed to request the council
to place the chalngang at the disposal
of the park commission both for the
Hollenbeck park Job and also without
limit after that work is completed. The
board then adjourned.
First of the Hose
> The first 1000 feet of the 5000 feet of
fire hose recently ordered by the city
council was delivered to the fire depart
ment yesterday by the Cass & Smurr
Stove company. It is the entire lot of
the Bay State brand included In the or
der. Before It was accepted the hose
was subjected to a very severe pressure
test under the direction of Assistant
Chief Smith. With one of the steamers
of the department water was pumped
into the hose to which a shut-off nozzle
had been attached, until the pressure
reached 375 "pounds to the square inch.
None of the sections burst under this
pressure, and the hose was at once
placed in service.
Sewer Committee Meeting
The newer committee of the city coun
cil held a brief session yesterday morn-
Ins; and decided upon the following re
port to that body:
We recommend that the bid of A. P.
Puslch. to sewer Twenty-eighth street
from the public sewer constructed In the
Intersection of Main street with that por
tion of Twenty-eighth street lying east
of Main street to a point 70 feet west of
the west line of Maple avenue, at 51Vi
cents per lineal foot for the sewer com
plete, be accepted and the necessary
resolution of award adopted.
Only Routine Business
Today's session of the board of public
works promises to be of very brief dura
tion. Very little was referred to lt by
the city council at the last regular meet
ing, and there are but few matters which
haVe been held up that are In shape to
allow of their being acted upon today.
One of the members of the board stated
yesterday that the board would finish all
of their work within an hour this morn
ing.
Will Meet Today
As tomorrow is a legal holiday, and
the city hall will be closed, the regular
meeting of the finance committee of the
council will be held this afternoon, in
stead of tomorrow morning. There will
be but little business for that committee
to transact, beyond the approval of the
demands that have been referred to it.
The regular meeting of the supply com
mittee will also be held today.
Street Car License
The Main Street and Agricultural
Park and the Main and Fifth Streets
Railway companies yesterday paid their
annual license on a portion of their cars,
all that they are now using. The pay
ments were upon ten cars at the rate of
$20 per car, or $200 In all. The licenses
were issued by the city clerk. The Trac
tion company will make Its payments to
day.
