WHY IT WAS CHANGED MAJOR BELL WANTS GEORGIA STREET RECHRISTENED A SLIGHT TO HIS WIFE City Engineer's Annual Report Gives Some Interesting Figures—What It Costs to Run the City A petition to the council from thirty sewn prominent citizens, asking to have the name of Georgia street changed to Georgia Hell street, was the first matter brought before the board of public works at yesterday's session. -Major Horace Bell was'on hand to represent the petition, lie went over the history of the street, declar ing that he had given the street to the city; that it had been named Georgia Hell street in honor of his wife. The street names throughout the city were then gone over by a committee appointed by the council. '•The committee," said Major Bell, "through the spit? of one of it- members—Charles Vormsm— changed the name ol Georgia Hell street to Georgia street. That's the whole matter. The petitioner then went en to declare that he and his family were resent ful at the action taken anil considered the change a reflection on his wife and on his family name. "1 could forgive a man who shot me in the back, but 1 cannot forgive such a reflection on my good name," said Major Bell, "and 1 never will Eorgive it. however unpleasant it may be lo bear re set'tmeut." Thomas Haverty took a vigorous stand against Bell. "I should call this a most nervy attempt to taddlde another name on our street by a lot of people, not one of Whom lives on the street. 1 do live there, and ought to have something to say about the proposed change e.f its name. 1 will say right now that I don't believe you could get up a petition among the residents on the street for a change of name. They are sick and tired of changes, and arc satisfied with the name Georgia street, but they don't want a handle to it. "Now, those who have signed this peti tion, or some of them, have told mc that they did so at the solicitation of an old ac quaintance am! because they were not in terested one way or the other. But the property owners are interested. 1 cannot see the propriety of Major Bell's demand for a change' of the- name of a street on which lie does not own a loot of property. Major Bell retorted warmly that be did not ask a change of name; he wanted that restored to him "that had been stolen." Besides, he urged the board to consider a petition tiled about eighteen months ago, asking to have the name of Georgia Bell street retained. "1 still own one street down ir. that sec tion," said the attorney, "that 1 haw- not conveyed to the city. 1 named It Virginia Street, after one of my daughters. That was changed by Mr. Forman, who had himself placed on the street name revis ion committee,' to De Long street, 'ihe street was named after one of Herman's political cbumi back in Nevada —a man totally unknown here. As that is the dirtiest, narrowest, meanest street in Los Angeles, 1 will give the city a title deed to it on condition that it fie named Forman street." The matter was taken under advisement. The balance of the inn ting i i the board Was peaceful, ami lite following recommend ations were adopted tor sjubmissii n to the coune'il at next Tuesday's session. We recommend that the petition from William 11. Summers it al. be referred to the city engineer, with instructions that lie present ordinance of intention to sidewalk the west side of Grand avenue between Fourth and fifth streets, That the city engineer be instructed to present ordinance of intention to grade, gravel, curb and sidewalk Turner street between Vignea ami t enter streets, in ac cordance with the petition from frank llc.u chard et al. That the petition from 1). M. McGarry, asking that McGarry -tr . t between Eighth am. N'inih streets be abandoned, be referred to the city engineer for investigation. That the petition from A. IS. Nash ot a!., for the grading with the natural gravel ot the street am! the curbing of Thirtieth plae-e. be referred to the street sup. rintend ent for investigation. That the application of E, Berqueet . i position as janitor in the city hall be filed. That the petition Irom Mi'-. M. A. Wis well, with reference to the opening of Sev enteenth street and the Improvement ol Vermont avenue, be tiled, as no pri ceedings have beet, instituted for opening Seven teenth streeet. That the ordinance authorizing and di recting the sale of lot 38, Sisters of Charity tract. be placed on its passage. in the matter of ihe petition of l.ucy •!. Harvey, we arc of the opinion that if all litigation can be terminated, it will be to the interest of the- city to pay the- pctitioi - or $4(KI in lull for ail damages] Your in ard would therefore recommend that -ueli action be taken, without admitting any legal lia bility on the part of the cite, am! only by way of compromise ami to terminate litiga tion, ENGINEER'S REPORT Large Amount of Work Disposed of During: the Fast Year The annual report of City Engineer Dock weiler has been nearly completed and witt be ready for presentation to .lir council at its next session.

C. Kofi.id. .lame*! - '. Cosby and W. B. De Groot, asking the coun cil to ignore the recent request of the West lake Improvemeat ii--oci-itinn that special counsel be employed by the city to assist in appealing from the recent decision ot Police Judge Morrison ii«c'.nng tin- 1000 --foot limit ordinance unconstitutional. The protestantS claim to have large prop*" ty holdings in the district composed of "un occupied, non-income bearing lands upon which we have in the aggregate paid hun dreds and even thousands of dollars of city taxes." The proposed action of the council .if that body accepts the suggestions of the improves meat association, H'onld, they claim, not be for the Kike of park protection nor any pub lic end, but solely for the avoidance eil >c.ni'. real or fancied damage or unpleasantness which it is feared m»y come to the re-iilents of the Westlake vicinity.

Finally it is asserted that "iho council has no right for a factional light against US to appropri ate public money collected by tax levied on eiur property, and thus l compel us to pay NOVEL LEGAL CONTROVERSY Plaintiff Said to Have Signed a Complaint When Unconscious Tilt CHARGES AND COUNTERCHARGES How Mrs. Calder Is Said to Have Been Hoodwinked by Attorneys While Lying at the Point of Death A legal controversy possessing unusual features is in progress of trial be fore Judge Van Dyke in tin superior court. On tbe 6th day ot last May' Mrs. Mary .lane ('alder Jay, as she supposed, at the point of death at Iter home on Avenue Twenty-two, East Los Angelev. She had reared her little niece, Kmma M. Athtrtou. to whom -he bail presenteel the less euphonious cognomen of .Mary Jane, in honor of their blood relationship anil intimate association, as a me mento of herself, Lying thereat the end of her own career, -he desired to make tome provision for the child, then 15 years of age, and determined to make her the owner e.f all she possessed. Accordingly, she called it: her lawyer. 1.. 11. Washburn, and told him that she wished to execute the necessary papers to make the child her sole heir. The suit now being presented is th outgrowth of that and subsequent transac tions. A complaint in which the-name of Mr.-. Calder figured as plaintiff was filed duly 16th, and the lady herself- (tied in less than twd weeks thereafter. Subsequentlj an amended complnint was Bled, in which Mi.-. Emily J. Adams, executrix ol the will ot Mis. Calder, was substituted as plaintiff. In both com plaints the ehiltl. Emma M. Ath rtoh, was made a party defendant, being sued under that name and also under tlte name of Mary .lane At her ton as well. l'\ J. Holbrook, the guardian of tbe eh.l 1. wa- made a co-defendant. In both complaints a decree of court was asked recalling a bill of sale of house-hold goods alleged to lie worth♦ 800 and judgment that the execution of an assignment ot a 81000 mortgage held by Mrs. Calder, well a- the execution of the bid of sale of her personal effects be declared to have been made under a mistake anil misapprehension of their true import. Both of these instruments, which had been executed by .Mrs. Calder, wife' in favor of her niece, ami the complaint alleged that thej had been secured under such circumstances that shei did not know what she was signing. It is alleged that .Mrs. Calder desired Washburn to draw up a will in favor of the child, but that he prepared direct assignments of the property held by her, which she signed without realizing their true import or legal effect, 'i'ho papers deposited with Washburn w\ rc alleged to have been left in his hands solely for sate- keeping and subject to Mrs. Cabin's order, but instead of hold ing them, it seems he delivered them to the girl, whose guardian filed them for record. These- acts were al.'eged to ha Y e been in violation of the express under standing with'Washburn, and the fad is set forth that no consideration was given by the child for the personal effects or the note 1 or mortgage assigned to her. Uu the contrary, the child wa- alleged to have been without means and to have been maintained by her aunt for a long time. Proceeding, the complaint alleged that the increasing illness of Mrs. ('ai der resulted in her removal to the Christian hospital, a charitable institution, and subsequently to the county hospital, where, agninst her will and consent, she became a charge upon the county, a, ,) that after lief removal from her home the household effects were removed without her knowledge end concealed. Learning at the hospital that she hail conveyed away her property and had nothing left for her own maintenance, the complaint goes on to show that she made a demand on Washburn tor the return ol the instrument placed in his hands in trust, but that he refused tr. re-tore them. A will was then exe cuted, revoking all former wills, in which other disposition was made of the property, all of which, however, after the payment of dents, was to go? to the niece after the death of her aunt, and suit wa- commenced for the cancellation of the formal transfers previously made. Fur; lor Blh gat ion was made that Itttt rs of guardianship of the niece were is sued to Holbrook on April 13th. and tint the papers then delivered to him weri on .Inly oth recorded under a misapprehension of the facts and by mis take. And it is sot forth that When these conveyances were drawn by Wash burr, and executed by Mrs. Calder she was owing at that time a large sum of money as a personal debt. For all such reasons a decree was asked settine a-ide the former convey ance- and leaving the estate to bo settled in accordance with the terms of the will. Ap) arently a great injustice had been done to the sick woman, whose kind intentions teiward her niece had been abused. Tht answer of defendants and much of tin evidence elicited yesterday, however, placed an entirely different appearance en the case. It was alleged that the personal property was-, in fa-t. worth only $200, ami the note and mortgage $800 or $1100 altogether, in stead of $1500. So far as the support of the niece was concerned, moreover, it was alleged tint her residence with her aunt had been of mutual advantage, the closes! intimacy with her aunt, the latter had intended when, making convey ance eil ht r property to part absolutely with the title and possession of the same. Sensational charges were next preferred against Mrs. Emily J. Adams, the executrix under the will, as also against her lawyer, Will D. Gould, who were alleged to have procured the signatures of .Mrs. Calder to tho original com plaint and to a general power ot attorney while she wa- unconscious such nets being in pursuance of a conspiracy to defraud the niece of her property Mrs. Adam- is :.'! ged to havi put in an unsolicited appearance while Mrs. Calder was ill. waiting upon and attending her with such officiousnesa that she acquired a controlling influence over her, which -he nsed te> her own advantage The will alleged to have been executed by Mrs. Calder, defendants say, ap pointed Mrs. Adam- trustee without bonds, to hold the estate In trust for Miss Atherton until she should be 20 years of age. This was not signed with the full name ot Mr-. (balder, but by In r mark, and the plain statement was made at 1 bwi m to thai Gould and Mr-. Adams put the pen in Mrs. Calder's hand when -In- wa- insensible, ami in thai manner affixed her alleged signature to the will and power or attorney without her knowledge. Mr. Washburn swore tin' in explained to Mrs. Calder the advantages of direct conveyance ol her property to her niece when he was called to aid her in readjusting her affairs, and that she -aid plainly she desired to make an irre vokable gift to the child ot all she possessed. The bill of sale ahd transfer of tr. - note and mortgage hid been signed by her with full knowledge of their import and effect, and the niece testified to a conversation held by her with he ri aim I subsequently, in the course of which she had told her that she ought to be- a good girl, as -he hoi given her everything sin had in the world. Abundant corroboration of this view of the case was had. During ihe presentation ol evidence for nlaintiff Mr. Gould testified that lie had a claim of $100 against ihe estate of Mrs. Calder. presumably the debt alluded to in tin complaint. Thi so! occasion for the suit appears to be the collection of this money and the advantage which may accrue to Mrs. Adams as executrix of the will in administerine tin estate for the period intervening between the present tinu aid the twentieth birthday ofMiss Atherton, who will,'then get what may bi l< rt of her aunt's property in any event. Will D.Gould and .1. 11. IflanchaH are the attorneys for Mrs. Adams, and 1.. 11. Washburn, B. J. Adcock and .1. D. Reymert are associated as counsel for defi ndants. The trial of the cause will be resumed today. _ LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MOKNDnu, UfcULMHKK 24, IS*B expenses of our o" ii persecution and oppres sion." • ' The document was filed by De Ornof, wie expressed great anxiety that it should be brought to the attention of the council a* mc earliest pottlWe moment.

EXPENSES AND REVENUE Municipal Disbursements and Income ns Shown by Auditor's Figures City Auditor Nichols and deputies are working at all hours this week closing up the accoutfts of the office in shape to turn them over to hi* wecsisor, K. \. Carson. Win n he leave- the office on the 2d of next month it will probably be in better snapi than in years, so well systematic, il is the work and so thoroughly done. Yesterday the annual expenditures and revenues ot the city were computed in balancing MM general ledger, bom which the following In tt testing figures were obtained' It cost this year, outside of revenue ob tained from the various departments, the follow ing to run some of tht more important branches of the city government: Police department. $114,039.3:'; lire department, £95,200.29; street department, $108,228.85; school department, $77,247.47; street light ing. $50,400.70!! street sprinkling, $51,534.27; sii.et sweeping, $18,517.80: expense of the proposed new charter, I708T.70; outside' it the salaries of heads of departments it cost |3068.8fl to run the city hall. The total receipts of the city government from all source-, exclusive of bonds, sold, were $1,033,712.06. Licenses brought in>»l67, --$75 of this, oil licenses.ssooo and dog lice nses $1658. The last named department is tot a paying proposition, except to the dog catcher, for he drew down $2022.76 during the year. New Council and the Poles One of the principal matte*! which will come before the new- council at the very out set of its career is the consideration of the anti-pole and wire ordinance within what is called the cejneluit area. On April 3, 1897, the counsel pasted an ordinance ordering all electric wires save trolley •vires to be placed underground wiJi'R a yea;-. On the 3d cf April last, upon ihe statement 'f l'.e com panic- that the; had been' utterly unable to complete their underground system* a six months' extension of time wa-granted. This brought the limit tip to October 3d. Ju.-t before this time expired another re quest for an extension was made, and three months was granted, being all that any of the companies asked for, all claim.ng that they would be working undergroun 1 lit Ibe first of the year. Once more the time is about to expire and hardly more than a be ginning has been mdc toward removing the unsightly poles and wires. That another extension w ill be asked for is certain, bu: whether the new council will be as complai sant as the present remains to be seen. This matter will be one of the first to claim their attention. SCANDALS OF SHOPPING Mis. Ellen M. Henrotin Formulates Rules for Women nt Christmas Mt>. Ellen M. Henrotin, who was elected president of the Illinois Consumers' league, has sent out a communication on what she calls "the scandal of Christmas shopping." This Utter wa- addressed to all the clergy men in Chicago, with the request that it be lead In in their pulpits tomorrow morning. I; was also sent to a. the presidents OI Women's clubs in the city. In this communication five simple rules ate recommended, which, if faithfully ob served b.| the feminine) shopper, will lessen the labor ot employes in the stores, whether men. We men or children. These rules arc: 1. Sbop early in t'iie day. *J. Shop with a carefully classified list. 3. Do no unnecessary shopping before Christmas. 4. Do not ask to have goods delivered the tarns, day* 5. Heiuse to receive goods delivered after 7 oclock at night. "In my economic investigations for the government," said Mrs. Urn rutin yesterday afternoon, "I discovered a distinct trend among women to form co-operative associ ations. The position e.f women in the indus trial world resolves itstll more and more into that of the consumer, and her education should be based on a thorough knowledge' oi social economics. Having this in view. 1 identified myself with tin- Illinois Con tuners' league. The action of the league in sending a letter to Chicago clergymen is for the purpo-e of calling attention to the se.m dal el -hopping, entailing a.- it does untold hardship on employer and employe, both of whom must minister to the demands of the consumer. A- tin consumer is usually a woman, she Is expected to profit, particu larly at this Christmas time, by the rules -et forth by the league." Union Reform League The Union Reform league will be ad dressed tomorrow afternoon by Prof, W. C. Bowman on a subject appropriate to the day, entitled "Christmas; the Birthday of Socialism," and by Key. \V. 1). P, Bliss, whose theme will be "The Prince of Peace." A new platform i- being formulated for the league, with a view to making it a national organization. It will embrace three or tour planks upon which all reform elements can harmonise, and the discussion of these will, it i- thought, have an important educational value. Vincent ball. :! p. m.
