INSATIABLE COLLIS THE OCTOPUS' TENTACLES NOW ON RIVERSIDE STREET CAR SYSTEM FOR FREIGHT AS WELL AS j PASSENGERS 1 THEIR PATH IS BLOCKED By Riverside Trust Co.—Trustees May Sacrifice Magnolia Avenue but | Victoria Is Exempt " The Southern Pacific Railroad company apparently ls doing some line work In se curing street railroads In the city of River side. Several years ago Riverside granted lt a franchise for a street car line down Mag nolia avenue, and the line was built and operated as a horse car line. Frank A. Miller, then of the Glenwood hotel at Riverside, but now the manager of the Southern Pacific hotel, Arcadia, at Santa Monica, was manager of this Magnolia avenue street car line. A few years ago a motor line was built between Riverside and San Bernardino, passing through Colton. This road was built ostensibly for passenger traffic, and the streets were utilized as right of way for most of the distance of twelve miles between the two places. The franchises from cities and counties Were so carefully drawn In the Interest of the railroad company that lt became pos sible for the company to run freight, as well as passenger cars, and heavy engines as well as light motors, but until recently no advantage was taken of the liberal pro visions of the franchises. This motor company finally became bank rupt, and the property was sold. The road was purchased by the Southern Pacific company and the line was then gradually transformed Into a regular railroad for the carrvlng of freight as well as passen gers. A commodious passenger depot Is at present being erected ln the very heart of the city of Riverside, at the intersec tion of Seventh and Market streets, only one block from the postoffice. For several years the Southern Pacific company has tried to get a right of way for a line down the valley, so as to extend this motor line from Riverside down the valley to South Riverside—now known as Corona; thence In a northwesterly direc tion to Chlno, where It would connect with the branch line built from Pomona to Chlno, thus making a loop line—ln fact, a kite-shaped track—so that the traveler could leave Los Angeles on the old maJn line and go to Colton via San Gabriel, Puente, Pomona and Ontario, thence from Colton to Riverside, Corona and Chlno back to Pomona, there crossing the main fine and returning to this city via Lords burg, San Dimas and Oovlna, reaching the main line again at Bassett. It was de sirable, of course, to make this line as at tractive as possible for tourist travel; hence the next step ln the program. I Frank A. Miller, manager of the Mag-[ nolla avenue street car line, recently se cured a new franchise from !he city of Riverside for the purpose of electrizing the Magnolia line. It ls ln connection with this franchise that the Southern Pa cific ls getting in its fine work. This fran chise is so nicely drawn that under it there is absolutely no protection ugainst (he company's running freight as well as pas senger cars. In connection with this franchisee down Magnolia avenue Mr. Miller also oslred for a similar franchise down Victoria avenue— another fine double drive laid out parallel to Magnolia avenue by Matthew Gage, under the Gage canal system. The amount the Riverside Trust company expended on this double drive was about tV.roO. lOn either side arc to be found tine orchards and beautiful homes, and event ually Victoria avenue will rival the far famed Magnolia In its wealth and beauty. The city granted Its franchise over this avenue also, but there was an obstacle in the way, and the city could not deliver the goods. When Matthew Gage laid out this tract and deeded this avenue to the city of Riverside he reserved the right lo build 6treet ear lines over this thoroughfare. The Riverside Trust company—an Eng lish corporation—is the successor in In terest to Matthew Gage in this property. A. Lowes Dickinson, a director of the Riverside Trust company and president of the Riverside Orange company, ls now here from England inspecting the prop ery. Mr. Dickenson says that his com pany will absolutely refuse to grant to Mr. Miller a franchise similar to that he has secured from the city of Riverside. To day, however, a franchise will be given Mr. Miller allowing him to construct an electric line over Victoria avenue for a pasengpr car service only, with the privi lege of carry ing'"domestic freight," such as parcels, etc., but not the right to run freight cars. The latter, In Mr. Dicken son's opinion, would enormously depre ciate his company's property. This program will, however, be eventual ly satisfactory to Mr. Miller and the South ern Pacific company. They will then be able to run an electric car service from the Riverside business center down va rious streets to the head of Magnolia ave nue, thence down that avenue some three or four miles to Van Buren street, thence on Van Buren street to Victoria avenue, thence on Victoria avenue back t» the business center, crossing Turquesquite ar royo on Victoria bridge. Such a pro gram would be satisfactory from the local passenger traffic, though not as desirable as spoiling these splendid driveways with refrigerator cars and other eyesores. Now for the amended freight program. The Keeley Insti tute, administering the original Keeley Treatment for the cure of alcoholism and drug addictions, has removed from North Main street to the Lankershim Building, comer 3d and Spring Sts* Fred A. Pollock Manager Mr. Addlstn, manager of the General Electric company in San Francisco, has practically admitted that the new lino down Magnolia avenue will be built for freight as well as passengers.. This line down Magnolia avenue can be extended down to Corona, thence to Chlno, and the kite-shaped track will be completed; the regular passenger and freight trains will be run from Colton to Riverside, thence through the business center on Market street —only one block from Main street— thence by some practical route to Mag nolia avenue, thence down the avenue to some point ln the lower end of the valley, thence by some practical route to Corona. The Southern Pacific, with the assist ance of their Ingenious manager, appears to have come out ahead In its negotiations with the city of Riverside, and as a result the magnificent Magnolia avenue, the pride of Southern California, will be converted Into a simple right of way for the Southern Pacific freight and passenger train traffic. The city trustees of Riverside seem to have fallen easily into the trap thnt Collls P. Huntington set for them. The River side Trust company, with more and com mendable astuteness, has seen the trans parency of the Job, and Victoria avenue will not be sacrificed to the omnivorous maw of the Southern Pacific railroad. KILLED A TRAMP He Resisted Arrest and Was Shot Down REDLANDS, Oct. 13.—Word wns re ceived here this afternoon that a tramp, wanted for stealing some harness and robes at Highland yesterday, was pursued by Constable Pike, but refused to surren der. Pike fired at him, but missed, and the tramp escaped. He was seen near the store at East Highlands and Eugene Wor lery and Robert Cram were deputized to as sist. When found he resisted tho officers by drawing a razor, when Worley shot him in the leg, bringing him clown. A physician wns sent for. but the tramp died before the arrival of the physician. The tramp's name is unknown, j The Rebekah degree lodge of the Odd i Fellows gave a social and dance at Mr ! Glnnls hall last evening. I At the morning session of the Baptist I convention this morning the committees ! reported as follows: On state of re i liglon, Rev. S .S. Flske of Orange; young j people's work, F. E. Sanford of Redlands; woman's work, Mrs. S. C. Webber of Riverside; Sunday school work. E. L. Koethen of Riverside; publications, E. S. Foote of Redlands. A very Interesting meeting was held this afternoon. Preparations are being made to give Company G a grand reception unon their arrival home. Ontario Notes ONTARIO. Oct. 13.—Rev. N. B. Shaw cf Fallbrook, foimer pastor of the Baptls* church here, vltited with his uncle at North Ontario and friends yesterday. Dr. S. H. Hatcher ar.d bride returned yes terday from Nashville, Term.. where they were married a few weeks ago. The well recently sunk on Lyman Stew art's orange grove an West Fourth street is considered a complete success. A strata of water-bearing gravel 176 feet ln thick ness was passed through, altd water Is now standing In the well at a depth of over 200 feet. It Is believed that this well will sup ply- an immense volume of water. A Paralytic Stroke Shortly after 10 last night Officer Zlgler found a man lying unconscious In the alley near Second street between Wall and San Pedro. It was first supposed he had taken poison, and he was rushed to the re ceiving hospital, where Dr. Hagan pro nounced lt a paralytic stroke, due to ex posure. For some time his life was despaired of, but after working over him for nearly an hour he showed signs of Im provement. He ls a man about BO years of age, heavy set, with short, bushy whiskers, and was dressed ln well worn working clothes. IF THE HORSE COULD TALK He Might Tell Who Cut a Gash in His Shoulder Oliver Thompson, a H-year-old youth of the East End, whose chief characteris tics were a large, expressionless face and a pair of small, shifty, black eyes, was on trial before Justice Owens yesterday charged with maliciously mutilating one of H. Fisher's horses In the starless gloom of Saturday night or the early hours of Sunday morning last. Fisher Is a Junk peddler and lives at 823 East First street. When he opened his stable Sunday morning he found his hor«o bleeding from a deep cut In the shoulder three or four Inches long, thut showed clearly that it had been inflicted with a shnrp instrument, presumably a knife. His first thoughts were of spirits or goblins, etc., but a second glance at the ugly gash, soot ihellged them to more material channels. It was undoubtedly the work of an enemy, but who? Some days before he had trouble with a neighbor's boy, one Oliver Thompson, over some work he had hired the l>oy to do which had rot been carried out according to the agn ament. He refused to pay young Thompson all that he had agreed to pay and the boy had left him with a threat on his lips. On emerging from the barn he spied Thompson, and according to the prisoner's story on the stand yesterday, Fisher rushed up to him and struck him on the face. Fisher denies this and said that when Thompson saw him he asked how he liked the cut of his hors*e. On the stand yesterday Mrs. Fisher corroborated her husband's story on this phase, and Ed Dorsey said that Thompson told him Sunday night that he had cut the animal. Ralph Marsh testified that he and Thompson went to the theater Saturday night and that they did r.ot get back until ofter 11, and that he had left Thompson at the tatter's door at that time. The prosecuting attorney asked that the case be continued until 2 oclock today so that he might bring another witness who would testify that Thompson had asked him to lend him a large knife. This was granted. CAMERA OBSCURA WINS WILL SOON BE PLACED IN WEST LAKE PARK City Park Lands to Be Leased—Third and Spring- Street Crossing- Repaired by City Westlake park will have the camera ob scura as an attraction for the park fre quenters. The park board so decided at their regular session of yesterday, when the committee appointed at a previous meeting reported that they had visited Santa Monica and examined Mayor Jones' camera, finding it a very neat and interest ing contrivance. Commissioner Work man, who occupied the chair, ventured the Inquiry whether there was any objection able feature to the exhibition, as some com munication In a newspaper had alleged. "Naw," answered Commissioner Teed, disgustedly, "the fellow that wrote thot article ls an Englishman, and ls not even a citizen of the United States." This proof of the entire morality of the entertainment was so conclusive that Mr. Workman's sug gestion was dismissed without further consideration. Mayor Jones was present, and ln answer to the pork board's adver tisement for bids, he submitted a proposi tion for a two-years' privilege, offering to construct the necessary building at his own expense and pay a cash bonus of $60 per year. The matter was referred to the city council, with a recommendation that the proposition be accepted, and Commis sioners Jones and Teed and Superintendent Garey were appointed a committee to see that the necessary building Is properly con structed. A communication from Piedretto San ttnl asked the privilege of a lease on the Solano avenue tract of Elyslan park. The tract In question Includes about 40 acres, and has been rented for a year past to a man named Casulo, who ls now said to have left the city. The board left that as he was unfortunate with his cropß last year, he should have the first chance at a second lease, and therefore Instructed Su perintendent Garey to ascertain whether he has really left the city before negotia tions are opened with Santlnl. Casulo paid $65 a year for the land and Santlnl of fers the same. The park superintendent reported that he had been Informed by George Lockwood, the Griffith park watchman, that a man named Martin ls making very general use of the park lands for grazing purposes. Martin had a lease on the lands under Mr. Griffith's ownership, paying $3700 a year for a certain tract, part of which Is now owned by the city. It was the understanding that he should have a right to the use of the city land until the lease expired, the rent therefor passing to Mr. Griffith. The lease expired some time ago. but the graz ing has continued uninterruptedly, and the city has seen no "coin" for lt. The super intendent has been trying to lease lt to other parties, and was instructed to order Martin off unless he ls willing to pay $26 a month for the land. There are said to be several hundred acres of It. PETITION'S AND PROTESTS What the Good People Want and What They Do Not Want With an expression of regret that cir cumstances should require such action, Carl Relss and others enter a protest against the revised report of the commis sioners ln the opening of Hoover street from Washington to Bush. The protest ls en tered In the cause of equity and Justice, the complaint being that the commissioners have not given the relief the council In tended, that the survey Is not ln accord LOS ANGELES HERALDt FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 14,1898 ance with the original petition, and that the object of the opening Is not carried out. Abandonment is therefore prayed, and a hearing le asked for. J. Lougheed has filed a separate protest on the same grounds. D. Botlller petitions the council to change the name of Delgado street to Ce cilia street. Lucy A. Miller asks for the cancellation of the sale of a lot in Daman A Willard's subdivision on the ground that she offered to pay the tax on lt. but was prevented from so doing for the reason that the tax collector could net find the property on the assessment roll. The Los Angeles Infirmary. through President Sister Eugenia, asks the council to improve Beaudry avenue from Bellevue avenue to Alpine street, by grading, grav eling, curbing and guttering. CHARGED TO BOTH COMPANIES Third and Spring Street Crossing Is Finally Repaired by the City After permitting ten days to elapse since he notified the Los Angeles Hallway com pany and the Traction company to repair tho street at the Intersection of Third and Spring streets, City Street Superintendent Drain has had the work done at the city's expense and charged one-half of the cost to each company. It ls a matter of only $30 or $40 as a whole, but the Los Angeles company contended that the street was torn up by the Traction company, and should, therefore, be repaired by that company. The Traction people Insisted thnt both companies should bear the ex pense, and consequently the street re mained torn up. Mr. Drain reported the matter to the council, and was Instructed to notify both companies that the street must be fixed. The notification had no effect, and the street department has now made the re pairs. Glass Skylights In accordance with a request from the builders of the Douglas block at the cor ner of Third and Spring streets. Chief Moore of the fire department has carefully examined a new material for the construc tion of skylights, and will recommend, at the next session of the fire board, a change In the fire ordinance so as to admit of the use of the material In question. At pres ent the ordinance requires the use of a wire netting over skylights, sufficiently strong to bear the weight of a fireman. The new material consists of two plates of heavy translucent glass with a layer of woven wire Imbedded In the center. It Is very strong, and ls an entire compliance with the Intentions of the present ordi nance. HARES AND HOUNDS Drawing for Sunday's Coursing at Agricultural Park There was the usual large crowd at No. 143 South Broadway last evening to witness the drawing for Sunday's coursing at Ag ricultural park, which resulted as follows: Ormonde vs. Stape Munton, Mountain Belle vs. Doncaster, Belle Seward vs. Llllle 8., J. & F. vs. Olympia.

Kitty Scott vs. Lady Wallace, Fleet vs. Carmody, Credit vs. Amorlta. Westlake Association The Westlake Improvement and Protec tive association held Its regular meeting last evening at the corner of Seventh and Alvarado streets. The association decided to petition the park commissioners to permit the improve ment of Sunset park by private enterprise amd its use as a children's playground. More crosswalks are needed ln the West lake cVstrict, and the following ccmmlttee was appointed to present a petition to the council: H. G. W'.lshlre. J. F. Jenkins, Lud Zobel, John R. Reynolds. Oscar E. Farlsh, W. E. Cummlngs and E. C. Magauran. The »ome committee will also present to the council a petition from the association ask ing ;hat a cement sidewalk be laid around Westlake park, and that the driveways be paved with porphyry as soon as practica ble. Resolutions were passed that the associa tion, through its executive committee, re ■quest the chief of police to enforce strictly the city ordinance regulating the operation of oil wells, and also to have all sidewalks :n the Westlake district cleaned and swept thoroughly as socn as practicable. So many new members and such a large amount of money were received that the association will be enahled to push Its work with vigor and success.
