SUE FOR PEACE
ALLEGED HOLD-UP TACTICS
Lankershim Hotel Applicant Declares
'. Brewing Firms Sought Revenge
on Retail )ealers — Commis.
slon to Investigate
The so-called brewery saloon llcensa
hold-up bluff has been called.
The mystery of the ownership of the
Qulllcl saloon, formerly located at 1568
San Fernando street, was also solved.
These were the two startling • Inci
dents at yesterday morning's meeting
of the police commission. •' •■ ■'•"' :•'
Three weeks ago Captain Auble and
two detectives went into the Qulllcl
saloon one Sunday morning: through
the back door and bought three glasses
of beer. Immediately Qutllcl was ar
rested, and the license revoked by the
commission on the grounds that the
Sunday ordinance was being broken.
Qultcl got away because he did not
own the place, as did the bartender,
who sold beer to the officers. Now
Mater & Zobeleln, fearing for the fate
of the license at 1568 San Fernando
street, come before the council asking
for the return of the license.
They say that as the man who dis
pensed the beer to the officers that
fatal Sunday did not have any Interest
in the business , the owners had not In
fringed the ordinance, that the com
mission should overlook the affair ami
give the license back to them with
permission to open a new saloon at
403 South San Pedro street in the name
of Frank Rademacher, chief engineer
of the brewery.
At the conclusion of the reading of
the communication . a member of the
council remarked, "I move the petition
be filed," and Into the official graveyard
of such prayers it went without a
blank. , ■ ' '-v,i., 1 ;,;, i :
The communication from the brewers
wss pregnant with interesting inform
ation regarding the methods employed
by the big breweries to obtain saloon
licenses at a comparatively small cost
and then dispose of them at great
profit to the men who are desirous of
securing a permit to open a retail
According, to their own statement
Maler & Zobeleln secured the saloon
at 1558 San Fernando street "through
the failure of the former owner to
pay what he owed us."
A further perusal of the document
brings out the fact that the revocation
of the license brings a "great loss"
upon the "innocent" owners of the
brewery. They come forward with nn
argument which reads like this:
Plea of Breweries
"We are engaged in an Industry
which no doubt is a credit to this city.
We have large sums invested in real
estate, buildings and machinery; pay
large sums for taxes and employ many
persons and do a great deal in promot
ing the industries and commerce of
the city. ,
"We therefore think that we do not
deserve such, a loss and that it would
be unjust to give the now vacant
license to another person who has no
interest at stake. The suloon now in
closed and we have given up all con
nection with its former keeper." Then
they ask that the license be given to
Several members of the commission
remarked that the Janitor had too long
figured In the license breaking of vari
ous saloons and that the way the brew
ery was attempting to sidestep the
issue was ridiculous.
"Sound* like a boy whose mother has
taught him stealing Jam and is send-
Ing him to bed without any supper. I
guess that license belongs to the com
mission," laconically remarked one
The second sensation came when Ar
chitqet R. B. Young appeared before
the council on behalf of J. B. Lanker
shfm and Landlord Cooper of the I»an
kerßhlm hotel. Young was unaware of
the communication from the brewery,
but he stirred things up just the same.
"My clients have decided to call thla
hold-up blurt of the brewery men," de
clared Young, and then continued:
"The brewery. is demanding $6500 for
this license arid has. asked outrageous
figures for. other licenses which It
had secured, and my clients are the
first who have the backbone to
"Brewery men have even threatened
that if Mr. Lankershlm fought th«
thing and made public their actions
they would make it impossible for him
to secure a license. I have been
threatened by the breweries several
times' in a similar way, and can bring
proofs should the commission desire
them.". . . . ./,- :
Young requested that the" license be
granted by the commission to the Lan
kershlm hotel before the system of sell
ing at public auction is inaugurated, as
Lankershim has made a heavy Invest
ment in the hotel building, and the
sale of the license In this manner would
play Into the hands of the brewery
people, as they would doubtless run the
price up In order to wreak their re
venge on Lankershim. .
Mayor McAleer said the question
would have to wait until the report
of the ' committee Which has been ap
pointed to look Into the case and deter
mine who has the right to sell these
BOARD OF EXAMINERS
FOR CIVIL SERVICE
The civil service commission at last
has taken action on the question of a
board of examiners. At yesterday's
session Commissioner McCutchen's mo
tion to the effect that President Thomas
be Instructed to prepare plans for such
a board was passed.
There has' been some dissatisfaction
In the past over the manner In which
some of the examinations were con
ducted, complaint ' being made that
they were not practical and did not
apply to the duties which the appli
cants would ' have to perform.
The notable Instance was the action
of the commission not long ago of
forcing teamsters who desired em
ployment In the park department to
pass an examination, while the teams
which these men owned and desired
to hire to the city went without In

GREEN MEADOWS PEOPLE
PROTEST AGAINST SALOONS
The anti-liquor forces of the Green
Meadows precinct, in which Ascot park
Is situated, turned out in force yester
day before the board of supervisors to
protest against the granting of two
liquor licenses in. the district.
At the last general election the voters
of this precinct voted to make the
precinct "wet," In order to allow the
Ascot park management to 'sell liquor
on the grounds.
Applications for saloon licenses have
been received by the board from Wil
liam Y. Newland and Mike Lange, and
a storm of protest was leveled yester
day morning at the county law; givers.
Judge Charles Silent appeared before
the board as one of the protestants,
and In an address of some length he
voiced the sentiments of many citizens
who , live within the Green 1 Meadows
"If these licenses are granted it will
moan a great depreciation of property
values in the district," said' the attor
ney. "Many Improvements are now
contemplated, but if these licenses are
granted they will probably not be
made, and the loss to property owners
will be considerable." ,
He declared that the voters had been
given to understand that If they voted
for .the .."wet" period only one license
would be granted, and that was to be
to the management of Ascot park.
He asserted that if a vote could bs
taken now the district would undoubt
edly vote the saloon down, and that the
Green Meadows precinct would remain
"dry", for some time to come.
After listening to the remarks of a
score of property owners, ' Chairman
"This board protected your district
as it has protected others, so long as
you voted to have It 'dry.' , ' !
"Every sort of political pressure was
brought to bear on the members of
this board to secure a license for Ascot
park, and it was denied every time' an
application was made. Then the people
of your district, of their own volition,
voted two to one In favor of the dis
trict going wet. Now you come here
and ask us to protect you from the
consequences of your own act."
The board postponed the considera
tion of the question in order to allow
the petitioners to be heard fully.
