Beard Does Not Agree as to the Man
ner of Handling Appointive
At their meeting of last night: the board
ef freeholders received their first Important
committee reports. They were from the
revenues and taxes committee, the fire de
partment committee and tbe judicial com
The flrst named committee made a report
ef considerable length, but stated that It
was not offered as final, but was Intended
bore as a basis for definite discussion of
the questions Involved. Much of the old
charter Is embodied, but a large number of
new sections are Introduced on lines sug
gested by an Inspection of other cities' char
ters. The one dollar limit of taxation is
maintained, and the duties of council, sit
ting as the board of equalization, are very
much the same, but an Important change
Is made In the duties of tha assessor, as
shown by the following quotation from the
"The assessment of property within the
city made by the county assessor
of Los Angeles county and the
state board of equalization shall be
the basis of taxation for the city,
ns provided for by section 3671 of the Polit
ical Code; provided that It shall be the duty
of the city council on or before the first
Monday of March In each year(to| request
In writing the county assessor of the county
of Los Angeles to furnish to the city of
Los Angeles a complete certified
copy of his assessment bcok, and
of all personal property and other
matters and information provided to
be furnished by him under the provisions
of section 3653 of the Political Code, and fur
ther provided that if any property in the
city shall not be assessed by the county as
sessor the city assessor shall assess and en
ter the same in the 'subsequent assess
ments' provided for ln the next section."
A provision for the Issuance of bonds for
public Improvements, buildings, etc., is
very much tho same as heretofore, but the
following proviso is adkled: "Nor shall any
such bonds be issued or sold during any one
year ln excess of the actual expenditure in
curred In that year."
Transfers from one fund to another in the
city treasury are prohibited excepting
from the general fund to meet deficiencies
. and of excesses.
The Judicial committee's report sets
forth the duties of the city attorney and the
city clerk, and suggests that the charter
shall make no provision for the city police
. court, the same being left to the state law.
The fire department committee submitted
the following as their Idea of the new char
ter's provisions for a city fire department:
"The Are department shall be under the
management of a board of fire commis
sioners, consisting of four members, who
shall be appointed by the mayor. No per
son shall be appointed a Are commissioner
who shall not have been an elector of the
City for at least five years next preceding
. his appointment.
"The board shall never be so constituted
as to consist of more than two members of
the same political party. The terms of
office of the commissioners shall be four
years, those first appointed shall so classi
fy themselves by lot that they shall re
spectively go out of office at the expiration
of one, two, three and 1 four years."
These reports will toe discussed at next
meeting. The remainder of the time last
evening was taken up by the argument of
the best plan for disposing of the appoint
ive offices, whatever they may hereafter
prove to be. The members cf the hoard
could not agree ami several motions met
with an Ignomlnous death. A plan to give
; the mayor exclusive appointive power, an
other to make his appointments subject to
council's approval, and' a third to have all
officers elected by the people were suggest
ed. Each had its advocates, but'the hoard
finally gave the matter up until next meet
ing and adjourned.
Judge Variel. Humphreys, Graff and
Garland were absent.
A Couple of Boys Have a Narrow Es
cape From Drowning
TERMINAL ISLAND, Aus. 2.—Two boys
Who were bathing at the Seventh street
float had a narrow escape from'drowning
this morning, and If It had not been for
the providential presence of Prof. Kahn,
the swimming teacher, both of the boys
would now, In all probability, have been
food for the fishes. One of the lads, who is
a good swimmer, was coming in from the
float, which Is about 100 yards from shore,
when his companion, who Is only a begin
ner, gave out and grabbed him, pinioning
! fcls arms so that he was helpless. Both
toys sank twice. Prof. Kahn's attention
was called to the drowning boys by an
other boy on shore. He Immediately went
to their rescue and brought them both safe
ly to shore. Beyond their fright the boys
are none the worse.
The tides have been unusually high the
past few days, and have washed out the
roadbed of the track where It crosses the
path of the old channel which used to con
nect the inner bay with the ocean, a year
.ago, before/ the breakwater between Dead
man's and Rattlesnake Islands was built.
The site of this old channel is Just east of
the wharf, and It may be necessary yet to
put In a rock bulkhead to protect the track
from the encroachment of the sea.
Mrs. Sale, of lalesales cottage, gave a
yachting parly yesterday.
The Catallna Yacht club will have a for
mal opening of the clubhouse Saturday.
Prof. Kahn will make a 80-foot high dive
next Sunday.

STOCKTON, Cal., Aug. 2.—A suit has
been begun In Calaveras county by a Mex
ican named Barrios against Superintend
ent James Schmadeke of the Blair Con
solidated Mining Company for breach of
Barrios had a contract with the mine to
furnish 100 cords of wood. One day
Schmadeke, who had heard thnt a son of
Barrios had enlisted in the Spanish army
since the war between the United States
and Spain broke out, asked Barrios
whether It was true. The wood dealer
gave an evasive answer, to which the su
perintendent retorted: "Well, if I find out
that it Is true, you won't haul any more
wood to thts mine."
It seems that Schmadeke subsequently
learned it was a fact that a son of Barrios
had really enlisted ln the Spanish army,
and It Is said that Barrios was forthwith
Instructed to cease hauling wood. At any
rate, he discontinued the delivery of the
wood, and the filing of the complaint fol

Inquiry Into the Passenger Rate War
of the Trunk Lines
CHICAGO, Aug. 2.—The question of
ticket scalpers and their relation with the
railroad compantes entered into the pro
ceedings of the Interstate Commerce Com
mission, which today continued Its Investi
gation Into the causes of the Canadian
Pacific rate war. After F. W. Whitney,
representing the Great Northern Railway,
had concluded his direct statement, he was
requested by Mr. McNlcolls, passenger
traffic manager of the Canadian Pacific, to
read a letter having reference to the reduc
tion of passenger rates from St. Paul to
Victoria, B. C. The letter was written in
1886 to the Canadian Pacific Railway Com
pany. The first paragraph was to the effect
that there had been no difficulty with th*
local scalpers on the subject of rates, but
concluded with the suggestion that the rates
to Victoria should be reduced and the mat
ter taken out of the hands of the scalpers.
Mr. Whitney, when asked to read the cor
respondence said he would be willing to da
so, providing McNlcoll would rile the letters
he had received on the subject.
During the discussion that ensued, Mr.
McNlcoll declined to give the required as
surances and eventually the Chairman
ruled that whenever Mr. Whitney based his'
statements on a letter he will be expected
to produce and file Ihe original correspon
dence. He added that the Canadian Pacific
when It presented Its case, would be ex
pected to do the same.
Mr. Whitney In the course of his state
ment, maintained that American lines had
been held up by the Canadian Pacific, and
as the price of peace had been obliged :o
Etlve up differentials. Speaking of the in
creased traffic brought about by the Klon
dike boom, Mr, Whitney declared that if
the Canadian Pacific had maintained the
tariff rates the American railroad com
panies would have sustained enormous
The speaker made a strong point of the
fart that the passenger rates throughout
the country had been completely demoral
ized as a reFult of the action of the Canad
ian Pacific Railway.
Mr. Whitney showed that the Canadian
Pacific had forced the companies to reduce
passenger fares from New York to St.
Paul and other Western points to 1 cent
a mile. He declared that such a cut meant
the loss of enormous sums to the compan

The Republican County Convention
Opens Today and Promises to Be
Very Warm
SAN BERNARDINO, Aug. 2.—The war
Is on and is a merry one. What the result
will be is beyond the ken ot man. The Re
publican convention tomorrow, from pres
ent prospects, will prove a veritable bear
pit, and a grizzly bear therein at that. The
light par excellence will be on the assem
blyman, the tight against Goff, the present
Incumbent, being one of the most bitter
pArty tights ever seen In this section. Then
there is the district attorney prize, for
which the present official, with a strong
backing but weak ln unexpected spots, is
lined up against E. H. Jolllffe, of Ontario,
the pet of the west enders, not to mention
Judge Damron, who Is always a candidate,
and always an unsuccessful one for some
thing. The latter "cuts no ice" as a candi
date, but may develop an aptness as an en
tering wedge, for perhaps by splitting tin
contending factions he may quietly drop
into the political pot and simmer content
edly with other dark horses. Pitted
against Assemblyman Goff is James Hutch
ings, not selected for his strength but for
his availability and because at the last
election, two yeurs ago, he opened the cam
paign as a red-hot Democrat, and falling to
secure the sought-for plum, he woke up one
cool morning thoroughly converted from
the error of his ways and hurrahing with
the loudest of the floating political popu
lation for the gold bug nominees. Rut he
was too late to sectire a position, and is
now making amends, selecting as his little
plum a seat at Sacramento. The latest
trick wus. sprung at Cucamonga, which
tarnishes six delegates to the convention
'omorrow. At the primary the fight was
fierce, nnd it was announced that the suc
cuieful ticket bore ihe following weird de
vice: "Delegates are instructed to use all
honorable means to secure the nomination
cf James Hutchings as the Republican can
didate for the assembly, nnd not to cast a
vote for the present incumbent to succeed
himself." This, in fact, was simply writ
ten on two ballots, but the report was sent
rut that It was printed on every ballot of
the 53 successful ones, and in consequence
cf this clever little bit of byplay for outside
effect there Is much howling ln the Cuea
monga Republican camp and talk of Ignor
ing the primary delegate? and sending n
new lot. The Redlands delegates hold a
secret caucus tonight to put the keen edge
on their tomahawks and to lay plans for
handling the convention tomorrow in a
way best calculated to suit Redlands. They
are numerous and they are loud, andln the
present mixed-pickles condition of the Re
publican party there Is a chance for some
startling surprises to be sprung upon the
people before the day is over.
New Orange Combine
A new combine of orange growers was
made last night preliminary to the incorpo
ration of an association that will handle
Highland fruit from a certain section ar.d
make a name for an especial brand of or
anges, perfectly Independent of exchanges
and other packers. At the preliminary
meeting, at the residence of E. J. Yokam.
of Highland, there were present besides Mr
Yokam, A. S. Hawley, Robert Bos Worth.
M. B. Campbell, John Algeo, F. E. Flat
tery, J. H. Blooum, J. 1.. Bobb and Sc;h
Marshall. The association will be placed j
In legal form In a few days. A lot hae
been selected at the Highland depot, on
which a fine packing house will at once b"
erected, and the coming season will se?
from 150 to 200 cars of oranges go forward
from this organization. The territory se
leeted from which the oranges are to como
Is in the very choicest of the frostless belt.
No fruit will be taken from south of the
railroad, east of City creek or west of the
State Hospital. It is the intention to put or.
the market a brand of oranges which will
always be in demand at the very top notch
of the market price. A meeting will bf
held shortly for perfecting the organiza
tion, choosing directors, electing officer*,
etc., to put the association In working order
for the coming season.
A Klondike Caution
R. E. Norton, formerly one of the proprie
tors of the Daily Sun, came in from Alaska
Sunday night, and will start on his return
.journey the last of the week. He has some
promising claims on the Little Manook,
which are thirty feet under ground, the
work of digging being till done in the win
ter and the clean-up in the spring. Work
cannot be done during the summer. »s the
whole country Is a bog. From October to
February they never saw the sun, and In
June there were days when there was noth
ing but sun-no darkness. Mr. Norton's
advice to those thinking of going there Is
that to a man by nature strong the country
has no terrors. The hardships have been
greatly exaggerated. As to going there
without good capital, he says: "Those who
have assured Incomes at home hod better
remain there, unless they are so situated
that they can afford to take the chances of
failure. While it Is true that hundreds of
men have returned from the Klondike with
fortunes of greater or smaller magnitude,
it must always be remembered that they
are the ones who have gained publicity,
that they are the very few of the great
many; that the sWe which is not uncovered
to the public's oPnlon is the dark one, the
cne which contains the stories of disap
pointment, failure and ofttlmes tragedy.
A reasonable estimate would place the fail
ures at least at 90 per cent. Little is said
of those thousands who will return from
that country of Ice and hardships ruined
in heaflh and pockctbook, and hopeless for
the future."

A Bond Election Called for the 24th
Instant—Summer Studies
LONG BEACH, Aug. 2.—A meeting- was
called at the high school building Saturday
evening last for the purpose of discussing
the advisability of voting bonds for school
purposes. The opinion of those present fa
vored such action. More land Is needed for
grammar and primary school purposes, the.
space now in use being too restricted ln
scope, the children of the primary school
having no playground but the street. Tho
school trustees met Monday evening and
set Wednesday, the 24th Inst., as the date
of the election. The proposition calls for
$8,000, Ihe bonds to run twenty years and to
bear 0 per cent, interest.
Today the Chautauqua Summer School
class on civics discussed tne subject of ter
ritories and their relation to the federal
government, consisting of statehood and
the relation of the states to the union.
Prof. Root cited standard authorities to
show that the Idea of "State Sovereignty"
was untenable, since none of the states or
colonies ever exercised sovereign power
before entering the union.

we have freedom of the waist muscles we
can use our bodies as nature Intended we
