THEY OBJECT
Wheelmen Protest Against
the Bell Ordinance
IN THE INTEREST OF DEALERS
COUNCIL WILL MOVE FOR MORE
FIRE PLUGS
■jjew Sewers to Be Put in—City Clerk's
Report— Special Council Session.
Petitions and Protests
Before the board of public works yes
terday morning the wheelmen had a
hearing upon the proposed ordinance
compelling the carrying of bells and
lanterns on bicycles. A delegation of
representative wheelmen, consisting of
C. C. Monaghan, chief consul of the
League of American Wheelmen; J. H.
Logic, Alfred C. Post, A. B. Mains,
Frank Barnes and Carl McStay. appear
ed to voice a protest on behalf of the
bicyclists. They urged that the passage
of the proposed ordinance was unneces
sary and unjust to the wheelmen. They
pointed out the fact that the speed limit
was already regulated by an ordinance,
which, however, was not enforced. This
same ordinance prohibits anything in
the way of fancy riding.
Mr. Monaghan took the lead as spokes
man. He contended that the petition
asked for nothing not already covered
by the ordinance now operative, but not
enforced, and by state laws. The en
tire petition was gotten up as a blind
by some interested dealer for the pur
pose of selling his bells and lamps. Such
an ordinance as that asked for would
Impose a considerable expense on the
bicyclists and would in no way protect
wheelmen or pedestrians.
"Wherever such laws have been tried
It has been discovered that bells and
lights merely confuse the pedestrians at
crossings," said Mr. Monaghan. "If the
pedestrians do not dodge about they will
never get hurt, and if the chief of police
will enforce the present bicycle ordi
hance, Instead of asking the council to
add to useless ordinances, he Will render
himself less subject to criticism," con
cluded the speaker.
Others spoke in much the same strain
Bnd for over an hour the board listened
to them. Stress was laid on the neces
sity of passing an ordinance making
liable to criminal prosecution any driver
of a vehicle who traveled on the wrong
Side of the street The drivers of milk
wagons and vegetable wagons were
denounced as especially responsi
ble for most of the accidents on
the streets, and the speakers declared
that fhey constantly ignored the rights
of the road so far as wheelmen were con
cerned.
No one appeared in favor of the peti
tion, and the matter was taken under
advisement by the board.
The following routine recommenda

FIRE PLUGS NEEDED
Council Will Hasten Action as a
Result of a Blaze
Around the city hall yesterday con
siderable comment was heard on another
phase of the water question than has
been discussed of late. Some criticism
was indulged in and remarks droppeu
as to the responsibility of the council
for the destruction of the Pico Heights
schoolhouse Thursday afternoon. That
the building was not saved by the fire
department was due entirely to the lack
of water supply, the nearest fire hydrant
being over a mile away.
The section in which the schoolhouse
is located is in the recently annexed dis
trict, which is supplied with water by
the West End company. This company
operates under a fanchlse granted by
the supervisors and there is no provis
ion in the franchise for the erection of
fire plugs at any point on its mains,
consequently the city will have to put
in the plugs at its own expense.
Some months since, in fact shortly af
ter annexation, the residents of the dis
trict petitioned the council for fire plugs
•md fire protection. On April 18th last
Councilman Toll introduced in the coun
cil a resolution culling for a water sup
ply for fire protection for those portions
of the Fourth and Fifth wards recently
annexed. The resolution was referred
to the committee on.ire and water and
there reposed for a time. As there was
some delay in the selection of the spots
at which it w as desired plugs should be
put in. Councilmen Silver and Toll went
over the ground and maps, and on Sep.
tember 17th last handed the committee
a list of twenty locations—six in the
Fourth and fourteen in the Fifth wards
—where plugs should be placed. This
list is at present in the committee's
hands.
No action has ever been taken in the
matter, that is, so far as the records
show, although the members of the ]
committee aver that the resolution was
not dead, but sleeping. Now that the
schoolhouse has been burned there will
probably be some action at the next
meeting of the council.
CITY CLERK'S REPORT
Ordinances Ready to Be Placed on
Final Passage
City Clerk Hance yesterday complet
ed his weekly report for presentation 1 1
the council next Tuesday, recommend
ing that the following ordinances be
placed on th>dr passage:
For the Improvement of Washington
str-ot between Central and Compton
avenues, for the improvement of Adams
street between Hoover street and Con
gress avenue, also notifying the coun
cil to publish notice of the filing of the
commissioners' report, assessing bene
fits and damages in the changing of
grades of Pico, Fourteenth and Clanton
Streets, and of Stanford, Paloma and
Griffith avenues.
The council Is directed to publish a
similar notice with reference to the re
port of commissioners on the change
and establishment of the grades of Sixth
Street from Fremont avenue to Bixel
Street, of LoomlS street from Orange
Street to Sixth street, and of St. I'aul
avenue from a point 4r>o feet north of
Orange street to Sixth street.
Special Council Session
A special session of the council was
held yesterday, with six members pres
ent. The call was mad" at the request
Of William A. Riley, the contractor who
has the contract for improving Fremont
avenue bl tween First and Second
streets.
The time for Ihe completion of the
contract expired last night, sixty days
having been originally allowed for the
work. Th« job was an extensive one,
and the work is not vet finished. The
street superintendent believed that the
SOS ANGELES HERALD j SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 22, 18*8
request of Mr. Riley for thirty days' ad
ditional time was a fair one, and the
time was allowed.
Petitions and Protests
Mrs. Hindle of Magnolia and Sixteenth
streets yesterday filed a protest against
the Improvement of Sixteenth street,
between Magnolia and Hoover streets.
Numbers of property owners have pe
titioned that Ellendale place be aban
doned as a park and the land used as a
street, the width to be 120 feet. As the
petition represents a majority of the
frontage, it will probably be granted.
The contract is all ready for signature
and Is submitted with the petition. The
work is to be done by private contract.
Contractor Wm. A. Riley has petitioned
the council for a twenty days' extension
of time on his contract for improving
Lucas avenue.
Mrs. E. J. Fanton has filed a protest
against the widening and grading of
Twentieth street, from Grand avenue to
Flgueroa street. She represents 140 feet
of frontage. Dwlght Whiting, who owns
190 feet on the north side of Twentieth
street, also files his protest against the
work.
Where Is Cahill?
Friends in Cincinnati, Ohio, write to
The Herald asking for information con
cerning Daniel T. Cahlll, a mining ex
pert, who was last heard of In this city
about two years ago. He is requested
to communicate at once with B. F. Ca
hlll, general delivery, Cincinnati, as his
mother is dead and urgent business mat
ters require his immediate attention.

WATER FOUND
Famous Artesian Well
Springs a Leak
A GREAT SCIENTIFIC TRIUMPH
ls ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT TO
CALTFORNIANS
A Well That Discouraged Many Con
tractors—Nearly 2000 Feet Deep.
Cost a Small Fortune
After over two years of constant
work, Involving the expenditure of many
thousands of dollars, the contractor on
Maier & Zobelein's now famous arte
sian well has succeeded in obtaining a
heavy flow of Icy cold crystal water.
Since the well was first started there
have been several contractors engaged
upon the job but all have failed save
George W. Durbrow, who. through the
use of an ingenious contrivance of his
own invention, has succeeded In mas
tering the numerous difficulties which
had caused the loss of much time and
money as well as tilling those who had
previously undertaken the task with
despair.
Mr. Durbrow does not follow the oc
cupation of well boring as a profession.
In the present Instance his services have
been strictly of an expert nature. Those
who had previously failed in doing what
Mr. Durbrow has accomplished attempt
ed to reach water through the same well
without success. One after another was
engaged by Maler & Zobelein, but after
a few weeks' drilling each in turn gave
the matter up as a bad Job. The prin
cipal obstruction encountered in the
latter stages was the presence of what
is known as "heaving sand. At a
depth of 1266 feet this was found in un
limited quantities. Sand pumps were
put to work and for several days the
contractor labored in a vain attempt to
exhaust the subterranean supply.
Finally, after over 400 wagonloads of
the sand had been pumped up and cart
ed away, the idea of removing the sand
was abandoned. Thoroughly discour
aged, the contractor declined to proceed
further with the well and work was for
a long time discontinued entirely.
The attention of Mr. Durbrow was
called to the repeated failures to obtain
water and soon after a contract was
entered into between that gentleman
and Maier & Zobelein. So confident was
Mr. Durbrow that he could succeed in
getting water that he agreed to stand
all the expense in the event he proved
unsuccessful. The problem of contend
ing with the "heaving sand which had
discouraged his predecessors was solved
by the introduction of an entirely new
system of well boring. The principle is
explained in the accompanying dia-
gram.
The old system, which was adopted by
previous contractors, was to run a sin
gle line of pipe through the ground until
the water vein had been reached. This
plan was all well enough until the sand
stratum was tapped. Along with the
sand there was found a water pressure
of several hundred pounds, which re
suited in the pipe's being clogged to tho
point of practical uselessness. To over
come this difficulty Mr. Durbrow sank
two additional lines of pipe—one on
either side of the original line. Around
these pipes several feet below the sur
face was placed in inflatable rubber
hand. Upon the application of hydrau
lic pressure this band expands so as to
fill the open space between the outer
casing and the pipes, thereby creating
a vacuum below the band. Thus, it will
be seen, the pressure from the water
and sand, with the pipes properly
plugged, would be effectually relieved,
as there would be no avenue of escape.
This accomplished, water Is forced down
through the pipe to the right and the
accumulated sand at the foot of the drill
is sent up through the center pipe,
thereby permitting free use of the drills.
In this manner about one-third of the
sand stratum, which is over 100 feet in
depth, has been penetrated, and a good
quality of water has already been ob
tained. At the bottom of the sand
stratum there lies a deep bed of gravel.
When this is struck the full flow of wa
ter w ill have been reached and one of the
most expensive, as well as one of the
most prolific artesian wells in the south
ern part of the state will have been
completed.
At the depth of 1500 feet it was found
that there was a pressure of 43 pounds
to the square inch, at the surface, or
6SS pounds pressure at the bottom. There
are at present over 14 tons of casing
beneath the surface of the ground. Add
ed to this immense amount of metal
there are nearly five tons ot tools.
Samples of the water have been sub
mltted to scientific tests and pronounc
ed to be of the very best quality. In
deed, the hope of securing water of su
perior quality to that now supplied the
city, has been the only incentive to the
enormous outlay made by Maier &
Zobelein in completing the well.
In speaking of the undertaking yester
[ day, Mr. Durbrow stated that he un
dertook the task largely in the nature
'of a scientific experiment although he
was satisfied at the outset that he would
. meet with succcbs.
j •• I first discovered the plan upon which
1 have been working while engaged by
I tlf Southern Pacific company to obtain
water on the southern deserts. As in
the present instance repeated trials had
;li ' n made without success on account
of the presence of 'heaving' sands. In
every trial I succeeded, using the same
I lass of tools and operating on the
iame principle as on the Maier & Zobe
cin well.
"In practice I have found that where
i stratum of quicksand Is encountered
With a pressure of water in It, the quiek
;and will be forced up Into
he casing if the well is being
• unk in the old style of sand
lumping, and it has been impossible
to get these sands out of the well cas
ng with only a sand pump for the reason
that when the well has been sand
>umped close to the bottom of the cas
ng the sands will run in again and
1111 the casing. I have known it to fill
'mm 80 to 300 feet."
Many wells have been abandoned on
account of quicksands or what' are
mown as "heaving" sands. In the well
ti question the sands are held by a plug
Erpm. ilalas. 4nLo_the xasine,. jvjilcb. is.
above the plug, and In cases where a
well Is filled with heaving sands they
can be taken out and a good permanent
well obtained by pushing the casing on
down through the quicksands to the
underlying gravel."
When the full depth of the well shall
have been attained all but the center
pipe will be taken from the well. From
this center pipe Is expected a flow of
water amounting to over 1000 gallons an
hour.
GOLDEN JUBILEE FAIR
Will Open on the 27th — Displays
Welcome at Any Time
Secretary J. A. Fllcher of the state
board of trade w rites to the chamber of
commerce that the Golden Jubilee fair
will open in San Francisco on the 27th
instead of the 24th instant, and that It
promises to be one of the finest fairs
ever held In the Mechanics' pavilion.
Exhibits of citrus fruits will be re
ceived there at any time during the five
weeks the fair Is open, and If displays
are delivered to the chamber of com
merce they will be forwarded promptly.
Five cases of citrus fruits have just
been received at the chamber from
Azusa, one case from Fullerton, and
from the Santa Ana chamber of, com
merce one case each of Ford's softshell
walnuts and black-eyed beans.
Two eastern ladies each sent 125 pieces
of literature yesterday from the cham
ber to friends in the east.
Reports from the state board of trade
are to the effect that there are more
inquiries there about Southern Califor
nia than any other section of the state.
FOUGHT THE CASE
Karl Boeder's Argument in a Hitching
Case Not Sufficient
Karl Roeder fought the case against
him In which he was accused of violat
ing the anti-httching ordinance yes
terday. He was arrested Thursday af
ternoon/Tor allowing his horse to stand
more <nan twenty minutes on Spring
street between Second and Third. There
was overwhelming proof of his guilt but
the defendant Insisted that it was im
possible for him to have violated the
ordinance and tried to prove it by argu
ing upon the time It would tnke him to
go from one part of the city to another
and then subtracting that time from the
hour of bis arrest, which, if it had been
admitted as true, would have made the
time his horse stood there Just 19 min
utes. Justice Owens did not see it that
way and fined him $5.
TO BE REVISED

School Notes
Miss Greene and a frit-nd, both teach
ers in the primary department of the
schools of Lowell, Mass., are visiting Los
Angeles schools, after having spent part
of their four months' leave in Denver,
Salt Lake and San Francisco.
The lectures to be given by Miss Hofer
on the afternoons of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th
of February at the Friday Morning club
rooms will be a series of interpretations
of child life, based on Froebel's
"Mother Play and Nursery Songs,"
considered in three groups as follows:
I.—Family and home plays, indicating
how the domestic ideal may be enthron
ed in the child's mind. 2. Nature plays,
by which the child comes into knowledge
of his surroundings and the laws which
govern them. 3. Industrial plays,
show ing how the social order and insti
tutional life are evolved. Miss Hofer w ill
be accompanied by Miss Ethel Roe,
the musical director of the Chicago in
stitute.
Mrs. M. J. Greene, organizer and
president of the Hume and Child Study
Association of San Francisco, writes
that she w ill visit Los Angeles in March
to establish an auxiliary here.
The botany department of Cornell Is
conducting a bureau of instruction for
teachers. Pamphlets and circulars of
practical and authentic value are sedd at
low rates to teachers of small children.
The department of music at the Los
Angeles normal, under the conduct of
Mrs. Rice, is Instituting rational
changes In methods of music instruction
in schools. The feeling and comprehen
sion of music and harmony is developed
from the normal child's appreciation
thereof, be it only so high as "After the
Ball." The idea is to begin with what
the child possesses, musically, when he
comes to school, and educute him from
that to the nobler ideals. The work pro
gresses in accordance with psychologic
principles.
The night school is one of the very in
teresting sections of the public school
system. It Includes the first and eighth
grades. Mr. Kdmund CJish having charge
of the first to the fifth grades, and Mr.
Shearer of the fifth to the ninth grades,
the former having thirty-six pupils en
rolled and the latter forty. The ages of
the pupils range from ten to forty-two
years. The work is individual work,
; from the fact of the various capacity of
the scholars.
Marriage Licenses
The following licenses were issued yes
terday from the office of the county
clerk:
Simon Trombatore, a native of Italy,
aged 21 years, and Anna Manguus, a
native of Italy, also, aged 16 years, both
residents of Los Angeles.
