WOULD RETAIN HARBOR CONTROL SAN PEDROANS STATE WANTS TO ANNEXATIONISTS Consolidation Plan Appeals to Two Beach Municipalities as Shown by Last Night's Meeting Judßln* by statements made by mem bers of a del* Ration from San I'odro and Wilmington at the. meeting of the consolidation commission last nlßht, the citizens of the two towns named would hfi willing to corno Into Los Angeles If assurance could bo given th.it full control of the harbor would be In eluded In the annexation scheme. In Us Renernl aspects It wns declared that tho consolidation plan appealed to the citizens of those two municipalities, and the belief was expressed that they would bo willing to listen to any plan along this line that promised to be of mutual interest to them and to Los Angeles, The delegation which represented Snn Pedro and Wilmington wns composed of Judge Hi C. Downing, city attorney of Sun Pedro; S. M. Storer, Frank Burns. Louis Hansen, Miner P. Good rich, John T. Gnffey, John A. Anderson, W. W. Burke, W. 11. Wlckersham and Luke Kelly. The principal speakers were Messrs. Storer and Downing, and both miide It clear that the control of tho harbor was the vital point with the towns which they represented. Feeling Over Harbor It wns also made evident that a good deal of feeling had been aroused against Long Beach because of the manner In which that city had secured control of part of the harbor. As Judfje Downing expressed It, "a harbor that is divided into three parts is of little value, and for that reason we believe that s:>me kind of a consoli dation has become absolutely necessary, In order to bring the harbor under the jurisdiction of. one municipality. If a consolidation along the lines proposed by this commission will bring that about I feel certain our people will be found to be heartily in favor of the plan." The Vital Point Recognizing that this is the vital point with the people of both San Pedro and Wilmington, the commission decid ed to hold a special meeting the night of June 15, ut which ways and means of bringing about a consolidation that shall provide for such control of the harbor will be discussed. At this meet- Ing a. delegation from Long Beach, as well as from San Pedro and Wilming ton, will be invited to be present. . Much time was taken up last night In a discussion of the question of policy with respect to Inviting- surrounding towns to send delegations to the meet- Ings of the commission, It was proposed that San Pedro, Wil mington, Compton and Watts be asked to send delegates to the next meeting, but some of the members of the com mission opposed this on the ground that a wrong construction might be placed on such action, and they favored a gen eral Invitation to every town and In corporated city In the county to send delegates. The latter proposition finally prevail ed, and the secretary was instructed to send out notices to such cities and towns that the commission will be pleased to receive their delegations at such times as may be mutually agreed upon, Mitchell Explains . Previous to the adoption of the min utes John W. Mitchell asked the privi lege of making an explanation with reference to criticisms of Senator Pen dleton which he had made at the pre vious meeting and which appeared In the record. He said that his remarks at that time had been based on a statement In an afternoon newspaper to the effect that the senator had opposed the inclusion of the proposed constitutional amend ment in tho governor's call for a special session of the legislature. This statement, however, he now had reason to believe was entirely Incorrect. In fact. Senator Pendlcton had con vinced him that, Instead Of opposing the inclusion of the amendment in the call, he had worked hard In favor of it, and Mr. Mitchell consequently asked that all reference to Senator Pendle ton with regard lo this inntter be stricken from the minutes. Secretary Fleming stated that As semblyman Btanton had given as his reason for opposing the inclusion of the amendment that he feared such a course would embarrass both the gov ernor and the legislature. He said he did not thin kit advisable to Include this matte tehcnlrlla?tyaUsu?gduMrk this matter In tho call and hence had opposed It. Butler Explains Also President Butler stated that having boon quoted as declaring that the gov ernor, in failing to Include the consoli dation proposition In his call, had broken a promise, he wished to make an explanation as to that, Ho said that In company with Postmaster Flint he had called on Governor Purdee and that after talking the matter over ut some length with the governor and his legal adviser, the latter had ex pressed approval of the proposition. Governor Pardee then announced that, as his legul adviser had approved the proposition, It would be satisfactory to him. Mr. Butler wild he had called on Mr. Flint In regard to this matter yesterday and the post master's views hb to the governor 1 * Intention coincided with his own. The cominlßlon accepted an Invita tion from the Municipal league to at tend a dinner to bo given by tho latter organization at Levy's next Thursday evening. At this dinner 11. ('. Dillon and Btoddard Joss will be asked to de liver addresses >xplnmitory of the con- Bolldutlou movement. Harrington Must Die liy Associated Press. JKKFKHSON CITY.
