PICO HEIGHTS TO FIGHT NEGRO HOME HAVE OTHER TROUBLES THAN CREMATORY ' Invasion of Residence District by In. •tltutlon for Aged Africans Arouses People of Fash. ionable District Recent developments In a threatened Invasion of Pico Heights by capital for other purposes than the erection of residences has caused the people enterprises that are trying to locate It has gained rh a residence neigh borhood. Tho peace and quietude of their dally lives la being broken by numerous ntruggles to keep out the enerprl»e» that are trying to locate In their midst. While mass meetings were being held to prevent a crema tory from locating In the neighbor hood, and a petition was being circu lated to force a winery to move, a deal was quietly consummated for the establishment of a home for aged ne groes to supplant the place occupied by the -winery. The neighborhood Is now up ln arms and Is threatening drastic measures to prevent the negroes' home from moving ln their midst. Fifteen years ago Frank Partenlco opened a winery at 1316 Vermont ave nue. At that time there, were no fine residences near his place. With the advent of the fine residences a fight to force him to move his -winery was begun. It grew In Intensity until last March, when a petition was taken to the city council asking for the revoca tion of his license. Partenlco, however, voluntarily agreed to leave the nelgh borhod -with his winery within a year. Knowing that he was beaten by the people who live in the fine residences, Partenlco, it is asserted, planned a re venge. His former neighbors say he hit upon a plan when he learned that Hllllard Strlcklln was looking for a location for a home for aged negroes. Strlcklln, who Is a negro and lives at 2053 Santa Fe avenue, purchased the property and has made arrange ments for investing $20,000 in Improve ments, he says. The home Is to be a charitable Institution. A number of the residents who fought the winery and are antagonistic to the proposed home are: Mrs. Mallnda Harlan, 1326 Vermont; John Spencer, 1408 Vermont; G. Hansen, 1414 Ver mont;. Judge John D. Pope, 1327 Ver mont. All of them are ready to take any means to prevent Stricklin from establishing' the home. No steps have been taken as yet, but the neighbor hood has been discussing methods that might be employed to prevent it from being built. It is, however, a ques tion of speculation what can be done to prevent the enterprise. Not one of the residents Is willing to suggest a way in which Stricklin can be stopped and It appears that the home will be built according to the plans. WILL REBUILD DIMINI BATHS Loss Sustained by Burning of the Old Building Is $160,000 — Insurance $30,000 The loss sustained by the Bimlni water company by the burning of the bath house was $160,000, $30,000 of which was covered by Insurance, distributed among the following companies: In surance Company of North America, $5000; Home Insurance company, $11, 000; Dutchess Insurance company, $1000; German Fire Insurance com pany of Providence, $1000; Providence- Washington Insurance company $1 Boo* National Union, $3500; North ' River, $2000; Glrard company, $2000; North western Fire and Marine company, $1. 000; Alliance Fire company, $1000- United Firemen's, $1000. An extraordinary high rate was charged on account of the character of the business. It seems that a bath house with a restaurant attachment has to pay the rate required for both a bath house and a restaurant. So that Dr. Edwards had to pay 2% per cent a year for all the Insurance and that he had all the insurance he could get on the building:. Architects are now at work on the plans for the new building, and It is hoped by Dr. Edwards that the struc ture will be running by the first of the year. Steel and concrete will be the prin cipal components of the new building, and Dr. Edwards stated that the new bath house would be far superior to the old one, as the new one will all be built at the same time. The old structure was of necessity of a patchwork con struction, for addition after addition had been made to the old house.
