CITY COMMITTEE MEETS REPORTS THE CAMPAIGN IN FINE SHAPE HICKORY CLUB REORGANIZED Wright on Police Methods and the Water Question—Political Notes and Gossip There were three enthusiastic meetings last night in the interest of the Democratic ticket, that of the city central committee at Music ball buing the most important. The Hickory club held an executive session during the early part of the evening, at Which all the officers resigned. Tiie club refused to accept the resignation of Presi dent Rogers, and re-elected him tio his old place by acclamation. Louis Heraog's resignation as secretary was accepted, and .lames W. ilellnian was chosen to till his place. John Yoakum's resignation as treasurer was accepted, but the members refused to accept tire resigna tion of George Kurtsch, vice president, fcrom the Seventh ward, and of Gilbert Kills, ser geant-at-arms. A new finance committee was appointed, with Judge A. M. Braggas chairman, tlhe other members being as fol low*! D- K. Trask, B. E. Yickrey, T.J. Mc- Carthy and George Uooser. All of the indebtedness of the club has been arranged for, and the organization is now going to take hold of the city light with a vim. Alter the executive session the rooms were thrown open, Karl Rogers in troducing as the first speaker B. L. Hutchi son, who spoke in favor of harmony. President Rogers then introduced the next street superintendent, Charles KoUtcr, who said: "We liad sonic differences in the convention, but they are all settled, and every one is out working for the ticket. My experience in street work has fitted me tor tilling the office of street superintendent. 1 worked on the streets for a number of years, have studied street law, and have built with my own hands the kinds of work that the street superintendent is called to pass upon." Judge Wright, being introduced, said: "This water question is one that would re quire the bes-t attention of any lawyer in the land. Ido not say this because 1 tear that the oity may lose in this controversy, but because of the magnitude of the cases. There is pending now the case regarding the barms on which the city shall acquire the water works. The difference in valuation of the water plant is great, the water company claiming it to be worth $3,000,000, the city a little over $1,000,000. This proceeding has reached the point where the arbitration committee has been appointed. They have all tlhe powers of a court, and this very day began taking testimony in the matter. The city has for counsel in tins case City Attor ney Dunn and Messrs. Lee and Scott. The Water company has several fine lawyers. On January Ist Mr, Dunn retires, and you will on the slh day of next December be called upon to elect has successor. This is not a partisan question, but a question as to who is the best man tor the place. The de termination of the question' of t he ownership of the Crystal Springs water is of as much importance to t he city as the question ol ar bitration* The matter of rates is also im portant, as the city some time ago reduced tihe rates of the Water company. The com pany immediately took the case into the federal court, and that court decided that the rates wore illegal. The company sued the city for $150,0X10, and that case is still pending. "In the preparation of contracts questions of great importance to the people arise. The only question at issue in the city attorney fight is whet/her if you were going to hire a man to prosecute these cases tor you, you would select me or some one else. "There is one plank in our platform that 1 must take up. That reads as follows:- Resolved, That we hereby condemn and forcibly urge the discontinuance of the practice heretofore and now in vogue at our city prison whereby sus pects are incarcerated without the for mality of a warrant and the right of counsel and a speedy trial; and we pledge our nominees for council to use every means to remedy this evil. This plank is worthy of a place in the hearts of every man and woman in this city. I do not believe anyone in this city thinks that the chief of police or, in fact, any court or oflicer, has the right to hold a man with out a warrant. Think of it. my friends You or I might be taken out of our homes and thrown into the city jail and held there without any warrant, without access to any legal adviser, and all that without the sanc tion of the law. And the police force con tended that matter before the police com mission. 1 do not care what offense a man has committed, he is entitled to a trial and to the right to have counsel as speedily as possible. It is a shame that in this city of an intelligent people such things exist, and 1 for one am opposed to such proceedings. We believed in taking the public schools out of politics, and as an evidence of good faitli we nominated two men on the lie publican ticket for school board. We had a direct [dank in that proposition and it meets the approbation of the people. At the close of Wright's speech Frank Walker, candidate for assessor spoke a few words. The fusion meeting at Fifteenth and Main streets last evening was well attended. Speeches were made by I. I!. Dockweiler, B. Goodrich and C. C. Wright. There will be two meetings tonight in the First and Seventh wards. The First ward meeting will be held at Banquet hall, Downey avenue. F. W. Allen der, J. Noonan Phillips and R. J. Colyer will be the speakers, with R. J. Adcock, pre siding. The Seventh ward meeting w ill be a col ored Silver Republican rally, and a fine meeting is anticipated. It will be held at 116tl South San Pedro street, with C. C. Flint presiding. The following vice presi dents have been appointed: A. S. Eagles, John W. Ewing, Wesley Jones, Rob Jones, •I. I! Cook, Moses McNuckles, Fred Black ley, 11. S. Anderson. S. J. Jones. All the candidates will be present. The Democratic city central committee had a large and enthusiastic meeting last night at Music hall. Every precinct in the city was represented. The meeting was held for the purpose of finding out from ilie committeemen bow the various precincts -to d. Every one reported the outlook as one for the whole ticket. Dr. Edelman railed the meeting to order at 8 o'clock. It adjourned at 9. It is said, from a reliable source of inform ation that Sheriff-elect "Billy" Hammel has decided upon some of the appointments he has to fill i n his office. Ex-Constable Harry Johnston is credited with having been made the deputy for Department one of the su REPRESENTATIVE JOSEPH W. BAILEY The Texan Is Not Likely ti Be the Lea der of the Democrats of the Next House perior court. Former Deputy Sheriff Al Graham is billed for the district attorney's office, and Deputy Mcdure and Mr. Davis, son of Supervisor Davis, now of Sheriff Hun's staff, aid to be retained. Deputy A. W. Marsh, it is said, was promised a place under the new regime. The Democratic committee received a let ter several days ago from Mursfield, Ohio, commending H. Sens as a candidate for school board. It stated that Mr. Sens served on the school board for six years in that place, and was an excellent official. It was signed by a number of prominent men in that city. Police Judges-elect Austin and Morgan were visitors at their new quarters yester day. Justice Morrison will take possession of the chambers and department occupied now by Justice Morrison, while Mr. Morgan will take the quarters of Justice Owens. The gentlemen will have some alterations made in their respective departments and chambers, in order to provide better ven tilation. The Fifth Ward Republicans collected las' evening at Casa de Rosas on the corner of Hoover and Adams streets to hear their candidates dispose of the water question. Chairman J. W. McKinley introduced the speakers. The first appearing. Councilman Charles H. Toll, spoke at length on the water question and how competent all Re publican nominees, from mayor down to member of the board of education, were to deal with the subject. He characterized the difference between the union and the Re publican parties as esssentially one of meth od, each believing in the city ownership of ihe water system, but with different methods of approaching the desired end. Mr. Toll finished his oration by easting bouquets lib erally at all Republican candidates. Lafayette Martindale gave the usual talk of not being a politician, hoped to be elected, would do his duty! if elected, and would re sign his time to some abler speaker. W. A. Hartwell, who wishes to be the city's bankr-r, thanked the Fif.fi ward for past support and hoped the same would con tinue. Ben E. Ward, candidate for assessor, gave his claims for the position and was followed by a quartette from the Seventh regiment, which gave two campaign songs. Candidate Walter F. Haas gave reasons for his faith in his candidacy, following in de tail the speech outlined by Councilman Toll on the two parties' differing methods of approaching the water question. Frank H. Olmsted. John 11. Drain. William A. White and William Wincup spoke briefly, presenting their claims as candidates. J. M. Griffith last evening gave a dinner at the California club in honor of H. T. Gage, governor-elect of tho state. Those present were .1. M. Griffith, H. T. Gage, H. W. O'Melveny, G. H. Stewart. W. A.Morgan, J. A. Graves, S. M. White. L. W. Blinn, R. •T. Waters, .J. 11.

The racing men have been training care fully, and expect to make fast time. Bell should do much better than at his last attempt, as he has had more time in which to train. There was a time when Bell seemed invincible, and it may be that he still has championship timber in him. Fritz Lacy -till -hows up in front, in spite ot all report's about his being a back number.

A PITIFUL CASE A Cripple Who Was Thrown Adrift on the World The attention of Humane Officer Clark was called to the presence in the city ja:l of Roy Frye. a 15-year-old boy. The boy has been in the jail for some days past as a lodger, but he is a subject for medical aid. He is a cripple, and it is believed that he was shipped here from San Diego county to escape the expense of his keep. Oregon. Washington and other places in the north have taken advantage of the benevolent spirit of Los Angeles to ship their indigent poor here, and San Diego probably thought they had greater claims and followed suit. The F'rye boy says his home is forty or fifty miles from San Diego, and that he was sent to Los Angeles by his people. Since his arrival he has been taken to the Medical college, but tlhe doctors say that an operation in his case is useless, and that nothing can be done for him. Mr. Clark will try to have the boy returned to his people in San Diego. Orange Scraps ORAXOE, Nov. 22.—At a meeting of orange growers held in the bank building this morning a new association was formed. It is to be known as the Independent Orange Growers' association. Messrs. A. W. Bru ner. M. Xisson and D. T. Campbell were elected directors, C. P. Mallory manager and the Rank of Orange treasurer. The new move is not connected with the ex change system, which has been in successful operation in this county for some years. The new association claims that it will handle about forty carloads. Union Thanksgiving services will be held in the Presbyterian church at 11 o'clock tomorrow morning. Rev. S. S. Fiske of the Baptist church will preach. Mr. and Mrs. S. S. Dyer of West Orange have gone to Napa county to reside. The Congregationalista have just com pleted a new manso near their church at Villa Park. Inconvenience of Child Marriage A marriage took place the other day, the parties being a Bhattia widower of about 40 and a Bhattia girl of about 9. The disparity in age is rather startling and it is aggra vated by other circumstances. For instance, the widower has a daughter of about 18 en paged as a teacher at a school at which her father is honorary manager. And his girl wile of 9 is a pupil at the school under his daughter of 18. The first thing the girl wife of 9 did on marrying was to remonstrate with her daughter of 18 as to how she, her mother, could possibly sit at school on a bench while the daughter taught her from a chair. What is the poor daughter to do? She must give up her appointment as school mistress or her dear mother of 9 must give up attending school. It is for the father and husband to decide—lndian Spectator. ♦ > » — PERSONAL Frank A. Moriarty of Denver is in the city for a few days. Frank L.

STEVENS The Successor to Frances E. Willard as President of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union NO SNOW, NO DAMAGE FROST AT RIVERSIDE DOES NOT ALARM ORCHARDI6TS Same Old Growl About Redlands' Light—A Reprieve for Marsh. Convalescent Soldiers RIVERSIDE, Nov. 22 — Last night wasj the first cold night of the season. The ther-1 mometer went down as low as 29 degrees in j some parts of the vaJley, and ranged up to 38 degrees in the more sheltered portions. There was no visible frost in the morning, aud the cold snap did no damage. Another cold night is predicted, but the orange grow ers are not worrying, for so long as there is no snow on the mountain ranges adjacent to the valley there will be no damage done to fruit. This city paid the Redlands Electric Light and Rower company $544 for power last month, aud yet one-half or more of the street lights iiave not been in use. The major portion of the electricity iuriushed the city by the Redlands company is used by the city in supplying private consumers, and the taxpayers who voted bonds to give the city a street lighting system are not pleased. In fact, there is a decided objection mani fest over the policy of the trustees in divert ing the people's money, intended for public use, into a sort of private money-making af fair. A petition was circulated here today, which will be sent to Governor Uudd, ask ing him to grant a pardon to Dan Marsh, now serving a nine months' term in the county jail for misdemeanor. Dan has served five months of his term. The petition is signed by the judge, district attorney and other officers interested in the prosecution of the case against Marsh. ■lohn Dix, E. A. Breinercome, (ivy Russell and Rert Fairchild, four members of Com pany M, who have been on the sick list, and who were not able to go to Los Angeles with the company when it left here, will go down tomorrow so as to be on hand to be mus tered out with the company next Monday. The two last named were left behind in San Francisco, both suffering with typhoid fever. Rremercome was taken down with the same disease just after the arrival home ot the company. The recent ahange in the weather from warm to cool days and colder nights has had the effect of making the navel oranges turn color very rapidly. Where the truit was totally green in color a week ago it is now quife yellow. Another week of the present cool weather will put a lot of the truit in what the shippers call lair color for ship ment. Word has been received in this city to the effect that the supreme court has reversed the decision of Judge Shaw, which was fa vorable to San Diego county, in the ease in which that county sued this county to re cover back railroad taxes paid this county and claimed by the San Diego officials as a perquisite of that county. The amount in volved is $9000. After the formation of Riverside county the Southern Pacific com pany paid tihat amount on account of back taxes on that portion of its lines formerly in San Diego county, but which, through the act of formation had been placed in this county. It is not thought the San Diego people will pursue the matter further. The water question to the alfalfa growers of this valley is one upon which they expend much study, for the rates are high for that kind of ranching. This being the case, plans for introducing pumping plants are being considered. George Thomas, an owner of a large tract of alfalfa lands, has decided to put in a pumping plant with a capacity of 30 inches. He has three wells with plenty of water on his land, and all the necessary ma chinery has been received, and will be in stalled at once, if his experiment is success ful, other alfalfa growers will follow suit, and the water company will be the loser by the innovation.

M. Coburn, of Corona, who was elected sheriff at the late election, filed his affidavit of election expense today, and it shows that it cost him more money to make the race than any other candidate on either ticket for any off ice. His expense bill was $399.50. WESTLAKE OIL CONTROVERSY Attorneys Stipulate Upon a Few Points in the Case The Westlake oil case was again before Justice Morrison yesterday morning, when Skeltoni & Culver came up for boring a well on De (Jroot's lots within the lflOO-foot limit. The attorneys had been in session for two days arguing law points, and the seven jury men who had been in attendance since the first day the case opened were in the box. It was finally agreed, to save time, that a stipulation as to some of the points in con troversy should be entered into by the at torneya in the case. In brief, the articles show the limits of the field and the contour of the ground to the north and northwest of Westlake park in the Wilshire and Nob Hill tracts. The land there lies with the crest of the hill fol lowing the general trend of Ocean View avenue, with the slopes descending on the northwest toward the Nob Hill tract and de .rending on the southeast to the level of the lakes in Westlake park. The well under contention is shown to lie twenty-five feet within the 1600-foot bound ary line in block B of the Nob Hill.tract. It is claimed by the owners of residence property in the Nob Hill tract that the value of such property is materially de creased by the odor of the oil and smoke of the engines, together With the unsightly derricks. The existence of Westlake park as a pleasure resort is threatened by the crude oil which has at times flowed.'ns far as the corner of Washington and Figueroa streets. This oil from the slope of ground is deposited in the lake in the park. Furthermore, it is claimed that the en croachment of the oil field has driven many residents from this part of the city, and con sequently diminished the value of real es tate. The Gold Standard The following letter from Sir Moreton Frew-en, the eminent English financial writer, will be of interest to readers of The Herald. In view of the live question of the hour, the question of expansion, and the upbuilding of our Asiatic trade, the Sug gestions contained in this letter will be doubly important: My Dear (ieneral Howard: Thank you for your letter of the 24th ultimo. I recall with much pleasure the oc casions when we met during the interesting days of 189(1. That the "silver question is dead" 1 am assured by a number of respec table gentlemen who hail mostly from the neighborhood of Indianapolis. lie it so! Le roi est mort, vive le roi, and were silver as dead as Julius the course of events upon the Pacific ooast would alone resurrect it as the leading issue, during the next few- years. What about Hawaii, the PhUippiaes, and more important still to idl your Pacific coast industries, what about the develop ment of railways, of that vast anthracite coal field in the province of Shansi? Your trade with eastern Asia is now going to ex pand with "leaps and bounds;" you are about to sell myriads of customers whose only money is silver; you are about to buy from those myriads whose exports will be bonused and stimulated by every fall in the exchange—that is to say, by every fall in the gold price of silver. How, for example, can Ohio sell rails and hardware to the Transmisaouri states in competition with exports from Shansi to San Francisco, the product of Chinese la bor at four pence a day (gold), that labor cost being even now reduced to two pence (four cents) by the fall iv the bidlion price of silver? Silver is "dead," is it? Why, my dear General, it has neier yet been really alive.

Wait until you all become familiar with the "yellow peril," nor will you have long, 1 think, to wait. At a recent meeting of —M Shanghai _—mber of commerce seven reso lutions were i«issed, of which the sixth reads as follows: 6. That in duo course the products of Asiatic cheap labor will prove far more in jurious to the interests of the wage-earning classes in gold standard countries than the presence of Chinese coolies; and that unless silver is remonotized, protective measures will have to be adopted to exclude from gold standard countries not Oriental labor ers only, but all thoso manufactures also which are subsidized by premiums. I believe your present times, so good by comparison with those terrible Cleveland days, will make men not indifferent as to this great problem—this cloud across the Pacific —but, on the contrary, it will make men more thoughtful. To continue as now to supply silver—their silver money—to myriads of Asiatics at half price, and per haps later at even quarter price, this is not a policy which any party can permanently tie to. And yet this is the gold standard policy. Yours very faithfully, MORETON FREWEN. Innishannon, County Cork, Oct. 8, '08.
