WEBB ROUTED
A New Secretary for the
School Board
AVERILL SUCCEEDS JOHNSON
C. 6. HOGAN THE NEW SUPERIN
TENDENT OF BUILDINGS
1 The Solid Five Reduced to Four by the
Vote of Dr. Mathis—Building
Supplies' Beport
Norman S. Averill, who is well known
in educational circles throughout thlß
part of the state, was eleoted secretary
of the board of education last night, to
succeed H. G. Johnson, who has held
that position since the present board
has been In office.
C. S. Hogan, a well-known contractor
and builder, was chosen to fill the place
made vacant some time ago by the
resignation of the corruptionist and per
jurer Axtell as superintendent of build
ings and Janitors.
The election was made possible by the
vote of Dr. Mathis, who has deserted the
Webb element In the school board and
has reduced the once all-powerful solid
six to a minority of four.
All of these advantages were accom
plished at an adjourned meeting of the
board last night, and only a few min
utes were required to do It. As soon as
the roll call, which showed all members
present, had been completed, Mir. Conrey
moved that the board enter into the
election of a secretary. "_There was no
objection, and the motion was taken by
cons>jfV UniaSTrTUstruetliifts from Pres
ident Davis. SeV*ar»,4phfi»on read the
following; list of arfWicartte" for the posi
tion: R. W. Reddy, J. W. Meyer, E. W.
Little, N. T. Powell, George N. Nolan,
N. S. Averlll, Frank Selgler and H. G.
Johnson. The vote wae taken by a call
of the roll, each member voting as his
name was called. There were only two
of the applicants for the position who
were considered In the vottng, and the
result showed the expected vote, the
remnant of the once notorious solid
six voting for Webb's protege, Johnson,
while the others voted for Mr. Averill.
The vote was: For Averlll —Mathis,
Davis, Canrey, Braly and Kubach; for
Johnson — Webb, Bartlett, Poor and Mc
lnerny. As soon as the result had been
announced President Davis said: "Mr.
Averlll Is elected secretary "of the board
for the ensuing year."
There was no delay In the election of
a man to take the place of Axtell as su
perintendent of buildings and janitors.
The reading of the applications for the
position was ordered, and the following
anames were read: C. S. Hogan, A. J.
Franklin, Vincent Gilford, C. E. Klnny,
J. M. Tlbbetts, W. R. Phelps, N. Sen
seney, J. W. Stephens, S. O. Wood, A. C.
Rush, F. W. Stein, A. J. Roberts, E. H.
White and W. F. Kennedy. The roll
wae immediately called, and there was
a division in the four members of the
once-powerful solid SIX, while the other
members of the board stood together.
Mr. Hogan received the votes dTMessrs.
Conrey, Davis, Mathis, Braly and Ku
bach. Mr. C. E. Kinney waa voted for
by Messrs. Mclnerny and Webb, while
Messrs. Bartlett amd Poor voted for Mr.
J. 'M. Tlbbetts. Mr. Hogan was duly
declared elected. There were no re
marks, and If the defeated ring thought
anything' of the result they kept It to
themselves.
The following Important report was
then filed by the committee on building
supplies, and was signed by Messrs.
Conrey and Braly:''
Tour committee on furniture, repairs,
fuel and building supplies respectfully re
ports sb follows:
I— The board recently adopted a resolu
tion authorizing the publication of a list
of the supplies mentioned in existing con
tracts, specifying the items, quantities
and prices. In preparing for the printer
a list of the supplies coming under the
jurisdiction of this committee, we have
found a considerable number of articles
likely to be purchased by this board which
are not Included In any contract. We have
prepared and will place on file with the
secretary schedules of these articles, and
we recommend that the board authorise
the committee to advertise for bids for
the articles specified in said schedules,
and to provide for the execution of the
contracts for such supplies for the re
mainder of the year ending June 30. 1898.
ll—We also find that the contract for
hardware and plumbing materials of date
August 8, 1897, was awarded to the W. C.
Furrey company, a corporation. We find
that the said corporation expired by lim
itation of time and ceased to exist on the
9th day of October, 1897, and we are of the
opinion that there is now no existing con
tract for hardware and plumbing materi
als. We therefore recommend that this
committee be authorized to file with the
secretary specification's for hardware and
plumbing materials, and to advertise for
bids for the year ending June 30,1898.
III— We further recommend that this
committee be authorised to purchase and
have set up In the assembly room of this
• ■ ...... • ■ , • - .
board a blackboard, upon which to post
lists of goods for which special bids may
be required, and for the posting of other
notices.
N. P.'CONREY.
J. H. BRALY.
Ai thCTe Is a lega4 question involved,
and It was desired to proceed legally
before declaring the hardware contract
void, Mr. Conrey moved that the report
of the committee be referred to the city
attorney with a request for a written
opinion .'in to the powers of the board in
the premises. The motion prevailed.
Webb had evidently not recovered
from the effect of the bad taste which
the reinstating of Miss Mac Owen by
the board at its last meeting had given
him, for he rose and made a speech on
the subject. He stated that he sup
posed the board wanted to. be fair and
he therefore wanted all of the teachers
who had been dropped and who had the
same or better marking than Mites
Owen reinstated. He had since the last
meeting written to Superintendent Fo
shay and Deputy Superintendent Ennls
to secure the names of those teachers.
The replies to this Inquiry were filed
with the secretary by Webb, who then
Introduced the following:
Whereas, it appears from the attached
letters from Superintendent J. A. Foshay
and Deputy Superintendent C. L. Ennls
that nineteen teachers previous to June.
1897, teaching in the city schools had the
same or better rating than Miss Mao Owen,
who was re-elected last Monday evening,
and that these nineteen teachers were
dropped at the same time as Miss Owen, and
seventeen have not been since re-elected,
Webb moves that all of these seventeen
teachershavingthesame marking or better
than Miss Owen be re-elected to teach In
the city schools on the substitute list, and
that they be given regular positions as fast
as vacancies occur in preference to any
new applicants.
The motion was seconded by Bartlett.
Conrey made the point of order that a
portion of rule 43 provided that "no
person whose fitness for a position as n
teacher is not recommended by the
teachers' committee shall be eligible to
election to any position In the depart
ment." He therefore moved to refer
the matter to the teachers' committee.
Webb could not object to this, but he
stated that he wanted a full opportunity
NORMAN S. AVERILL
for the members to express their opin
ions on the matter. When assured that
an opportunity would be afforded when
the committee reported he agreed with
the others to refer the matter.
President Davis called the attention
of the board to the nuisance at the
Spring street school caused? by the
standing In front of that building of a
number of large furniture vans. He
said the matter had been complained of
by the principal of the school. He had
communicated with Chief of Police
Glass on the subject and had been in
formed by the latter that if the bdard
would pass a resolution asking him to
enforce the ordinance he would put a
stop to the practice. Just why the chief
of police needed a resolution from the
board before he enforced the ordinance
was not stated, but on motion of Mr.
Poor such a resolution was adopted.
Director Webb called attention to the
necessity for another room in the Second
street school. He stated that there were
three rooms there which are not in use
and which could by the removal of two
small partitions be made into a school
room as good as any other in the build
ing. He therefore moved that this work
be done at once. Superintendent Fo
shay and the pfincipal of the school
stated that this work was necessary.
After considerable discussion the mat
ter was referred to the building com
mittee with Instruction to report at tho
next regular meeting, which is to be
held next Monday night.
THE NEW SCHOOL OFFICIALS
Norman S. Averlll, who was last night
elected secretary pf the board of educa
tion, has been identified with education
al matters In this county and state for
many years.- A year ago he was a candi
date for the position, but was defeated,
although the rftlnOrlty of the board vot
ed for him. He was formerly chief dep
uty under the late county auditor Con
verse. Howe and liter under Gen. Rol
lins. More recently he was employed in
the office of the county school superin
tendent. There he gained the experi
ence which will serve him well In his
new position. His wife has long been a
teacher, and was at one time assistant
superintendent of schools. He resides at
1635 Rosewood avenue, which is in the
Second ward.
C. S. Hogan, who succeeds the late
unlamented Axtell, Is a builder and con
tractor, who Is well known throughout
the city. His building operations have
brought him prominently before the
public on account of their extent. Last
year he erected sixteen large buildings
in this city. Accompanying his appli
cation for the position of superintendent
of buildings and janitors were recom
mendations from many prominent men
of the city. He resides at 787 East Wash
ington street, in the Sixth ward, and has
never before held public office.

LOS ANGELES HERALD t WEDNESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 9, 1898
TWO BOLD HOLDS UP
CITIZENS MADE TO STAND AND
DELIVER LAST NIGHT
Both the Bobberies Occurred Near
First Street—Police Are Saga
ciously Secretive
There were two hold-ups last night,
at places almost within pistol shot of
each other. Both occurred before mid
night, and both were committed by the
same men, for the descriptions of the
robbers were similar in each case.
The first was on Bunker Hill avenue,
near First street, and the other occurred
on Grand avenue, near the same street.
Both cases were reported to the police,
full details being given, but with the
usual sagacious secresy, the names of
the victims were not made public. In
the Grand-avenue eass>, a citizen was
stopped by two men. who covered him
with a revolver and demanded his
money. There was n othlng for him to
do but to submit, and the ruffians took
$2 from him.
In the other case no particulars were
given out by the officers. The robberies
were reported at the police station im
mediately after they were committed.
ACADEMY OF SCIENCES
Able Papers by Profs. Leslie ant!
Palette
The regular monthly meeting of the
Academy of Sciences was held last even
ing in the Owens block, 330V£ South
Spring street. There was a large at
tendance of members. The meeting was
called to order by the president, W. A.
I Spalding, who, after the completion of
routine business, introduced Prof. Les
lie, head of the science department of
the high school. The title of Prof. Les
lie's paper was "Problems of Living Mat
ter," and the subject treated was a brief
study of all physiology and a brief dis
cussion of life theories.
The speaker disclaimed any original
ity of research, but explained that It
was a compilation of extracts from the
latest scientific authorities on the sub
ject. While technical In terms, it wa,s
highly Interesting for the non-scientific
listener, as well as those skilled In
biology. It was illustrated with stere
opticon views, showing cells and divi
sions of cells through their develop
ment of the ovum and the embryo-
• Prof. E. M. Pallette, instructor of
biology in the high school, followed in
an,able paper on "Evolution's Debt to
Embryology." The speaker took up the
subject where the former paper left off,
and carried it to the higher forms of
life, according to the latest scientific
discoveries in evolution and the conclu
sions of the ablest modern writers. Prof.
Palleitte's paper was also illustrated by
stereopticon views.
At the conclusion of the papers Prof.
Phillips offered a resolution compliment
ary to Prof. A. J. McClatchie, a member
,of the academy, regretting his departure
from Los Angeles, commending him to
the people of Arizona, and wishing him
abundant success in the new field of
labor into which, he is about to enter.
The resolution passed unanimously.
Prof. McClatchie leaves Los Angeles to
accept a chair in the University of Ari
zona, where he will devote himself es
pecially to the science of agriculture.
RESENTED AN INSULT
A Times Reporter Punches the Nose
of Councilman Hutchison
In the committee room of the city coun
cil yesterday afternoon, in the presence
of Counciimen Baker, Mathus, Toll and
Nickell, Reporter George M. Trow
bridge of the Times punched the nose of
E. L. Hutchison, in retaliation for an in
sult of the gravest character. The af
fair was the result of feeling displayed
by Councilman HutchlEon over the
treatment he had received at the hands
of the Times, and he so far lost his head
as to apply the foulest of terms to Mr.
Trowbridge, who promptly resented the
insult, and, attacking his traducer, ad
ministered a couple of stinging blows
before the affair was stopped by the in
terference of Counciimen Baken and
Mathuss.
Hutchison came into the room where
the others were assembled, and his ire
was aroused by a Joking remark of Mr.
Baker. He denounced the newspapers
and reporters in heated words, making
his remarks especially ' applicable to
Mr. Trowbridge, who very promptly
voiced his protest. This drew upon him
the anger of the member from the
Eighth ward,.who ordered the. reporter
from the room. In vain the other coun
ctlmeh expostulated with Hutchison; he
insisted that Trowbridge must get out,
and gtew more abusive in his language,
finally applying the foul epithet which
drew upon him the attack.
The blow caused the blood to flow free
ly from the damaged probocsis, but
further hostilities were prevented, and
the incident closed.
The affair was the talk of the corridors
last night, and many expressions of
condemnation were heard for the actions
of the Eighth ward man. Each and every
councilman present, and this included
President Sliver and Mr. Ashman, who
came In a few moments after the en
counter, and while both principals were
in the room, expressed the highest re
gard and esteem for Mr. Trowbridge as
a gentleman and news-gatherer, and did
not hesitate to condemn in strong terms
the unwarranted and vile language of
Hutchison in his attack upon the charac
ter of a man whom all know to be above
reproach.
SUCCESSFUL SCIENTISTS
Return With Some Strange South Sea
Specimens
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. B.—A large
party of scientists, consisting of Messrs.
C. M. Harris, d. B. Hull. F. B. Droune of
Hyde Park, Mass., and R. H. Beck of this
state, has just returned from the South
seas with several thousands valuable
specimens of strange birds, animals aud
reptiles, some of which have never be
fore been secured.
The explorers were retained by the
Frank Blake-Webster company of Hyde
Park, Mass., naturalists, as the agents
for Baron Rothschild. The expedition
was fitted out principally in Boston,
though the sea trip was commenced from
San Francisco. Eight months ago the
explorers sailed from this port In the
schooner Lila and Mattie, which car
ried a crew of nine men and. the captain,
besides the four scientists. She sailed
directly to the Island of Galapagos, a
posseslson of Ecuador, where their sci
entific researches commenced.
Baron Rothschild is an enthusiastic
scientist and has one of the best
equipped museums in the world. It was
in the hope of enlarging his collection
and adding to It many valuable speci
mens that he sent out the expedition*.
In this he has been entirely successful.
THE ISTHMUS REVOLT
Warships at Hand to Protect Amer-
lean Intents
WASHINGTON, Feb. B.—Captain Leutz.
In command of the Alert, has cabled the
navy department that he has landed ma
rines at San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, for
the protection of the American consulate,
owing to the fact that a revolution has
broken out.
The Alert Is at San Juan del Sur, the
gunboat Marietta is at Libertad and the
gunboat Newport was at Greytown on the
east coast at last reports.
This afternoon a cablegram was re
ceived at the navy department telling of
the progress of the revolutionary move
ment at that end of the Nicaraguan canal.
The captain said that he had landed a
force for the protection of the United
States consulate and the government
forces had given notice of their Intention
to bombard the town. He had taken on
the Alert all of the women and children
wbo cared for refuge. The bombardment
began yesterday and in the end the rebels
were driven out of town, which was en
tered and taken possession of by the gov
ernment troops. The rebels retreated to
wards the Interior of the country.
The opinion among the Central Ameri
cans here Is that the insurrection has been
a mistake from the beginning and is
doomed to failure owing to the prepara
tions of President Zela,ya to meet the
storm. The outcome of this uprising is
awaited with much interest because it Is
the first real test that has been made of
the ability of the Greater Republic to carry
out that part of the tripartite agreement
that pledges united effort to suppress rebel
lion In any one state.
THREATENING LETTERS
SENT TO JUDGE TRYING SHERIFF
MARTIN.
Testimony Given Showing That the
Men Shot Down were Unarmed
and Not Disorderly
WILKESBABRE, Pa., Feb. B—Be
fore the trial of Sheriff Martin and his
deputies was resumed today Judge
Woodward stated that he had received
an anonymous letter stating that if he
did not do certain things something
would happen, and a threat was made.
The Judge said:
"The man who wrote this will proba
bly hear what I have to say, and I want
to tell him that he Is a scoundrel and
a coward and that no such dishonorable
means will in any way affect my judg
ment."
Judge Woodward ruled out certain evi
dence given yesterday by John Costello,
a witness for the prosecution, and which
had been objected to by the defense.
During the course of Costello's testi
mony he had said to Deputy Hess, re
ferring to the shooting of the Btrikers:
"This is a nice thing you have done."
Costello said he replied angrily: "Shut
up, or I'll treat you the same way," at
the same time leveling his rifle at Cos
tello's head.
Costello was then recalled and asked
to go on and tell what he saw at Latti
mer. He said that he had seen eight
wounded men lying along the road and
three dead men. He stated that he did
what he could for the wounded, and
that he had found no weapons on any of
them.
J. J. Jones, chief of police of West
Hazelton, testified that the strikers
reached West Hazelton on the afternoon
of the shooting and there met the sheriff
and deputies. They carried a flag and
talked rather loud, but they had no arms
and made no disturbance. The sheriff
told them that they could not march to
Latimer and that they must go home,
whereupon he( Jones) advised them to
go back and showed them how they
could march by a side street.
John Lynch, the next witness, testified
that he was at West Hazelton when the
strikers arrived, and that they were un
armed and orderly. The sheriff told some
of the strikers they had better get out
of the way, as there was liable to be
trouble if they did not disperse. The
witness testified that Deputy Manley
struck him with a gun as he was moving
off the street, and that another man was
also struck. One deputy pointed his
gun at a striker and said:
"I could get a bead on that fellow."
Deputy Ferrow told a man who was
sympathizing with a striker whose head
was bleeding that If he did not shut up
he would blow his head off.
Witness denied, on cross-examination,
that he had a black Jack and tried to
hit a deputy with it.
Herman Hottinger of Hazelton said
that while he was at "West Hazelton on
the day of the shooting Deputy Diehl
threatened to "blow my brains out if I
did not get out of the road." •
Another deputy said: "I bet I drop
six of them when I get over there."
The cross-examination failed to shake
Hottinger's story.
A College Conflict
CHICAGO, Feb. B.—Two thousand stu
dents of the Rush Medical College of Den
tal Surgery and the Marquette school en
gaged In a desperate conflict this afternoon
at Harrison and Wood streets with forty
policemen. The trouble began when po
licemen Interfered in a snowball fight
among the students. The students, Join
ing forces, attacked the officers and soon
a fighting spirit was aroused on botb
sides. The battle raged, with Intermissions
of peace, from noon until 6 oclock in the
evening. During the light four students
were badly clubbed and Officers Sullivan
and Brennan were Injured. Twenty-five
students were placed under arrest.

AT THE THEATER
LOSANGELES THEATER. —The sec
ond rendition of "The Serenade" by the
Bostonians, which was given last night to
a crowded house, was in many respects
even more enjoyable than that of the
night previous. The participants seemed
fully to realize the friendly feelings of
the audience and the performance went
with a swing and an abandon that
brought out many little points of excel
lence that were not so prominent on the
first night. Mr. Frothingham, for in
stance, was more highly amusing in his
role of Gomez, the ambitious tailor who
desires to be able to sing, and Harry
Brown, although he really has but one
scene that gives him a chance, made the
most of it, without making it unduly
prominent.
There were two changes in the cast
last night, Mr. Barnabee's part of the
duke being assumed by W. H. Fitzger
ald, who is presumably the regular un-
derstrjcly for the character, seeing that
he was perfect In the lines, the business
and the songs, everything being done
after the pattern set by Mr. Barnabee —
In some Instances, It Is only fair to say.
that it was rather a long way after the
pattern.
The other change was In giving the
tenor role of Lopes to Grafton O. Baker,
a young gentleman who has a pleasing
voice, which shows capabilities of devel
opment. His singing of the pretty song,
"I Envy the Bird." was twice redemand
ed, as much on account of the melody as
for the way in which it was rendered.
This number ought to become a draw
ing-room favorite, as It is admirably
suited to the capacity of the average
society tenor.
The "Angelus" in the second act, led
by Jessie Bartlett Davis in her own de
licioUß style, scored another success. It
it a pity that this number Is not given
with the organ accompaniment written
for it, which would immensely increase
its effect. "The Serenade" will be re
peated tonight for the last time.
At the matinee today and again to
morrow night "Robin Hood" will be
presented, closing a brilliant engage
mejit, which is all too brief to suit the
admirers of this fine organization.

preach Infant baptism.
