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

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.

The racing men have been training care

it out in open races.
Handicapper Smith has been watching the
new men carefully, and will list off the dis

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.

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.

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.
