Declare
The Harriman interests will lose one
of the franchises they asked for and
were granted, the city council having
decided yesterday to withdraw permis
sion to burrow under California Rtrcet

The franchise or permission may be

couiicllmen said.
The Noiiy adopted the report of City
Attorney Leslie H. Hewitt, which was
us follows:
"With reference to the ordinance,
passed by the council on January 2,
ISIO7, granting to the Los Angeles Pa
cific company permission to construct
a subway under private property and
under California street a. id lands be
longing to the city of Los Angeles, be
tween the northerly lino on Temple
street and Sunset boulevard, I advise
that said ordinance bo reconsidered,
and upon reconsideration that it be not
adopted.
"Said ordinance was passed upon
condition that the Los Angeles Pacific
company would pay $1000 for the right
to construct the subway under the
city's property, which money has not
been paid.
"On February 11 your honorable body
was to receive bids for a street rail
road to be operated through a tunnel
to be constructed in Hill street, be
tween First street and Temple street,
hut no bids were received for said
franchise, and in view of the fact that
/the tunnel in Hill street and the tunnel
«>r subway intended to be provided for
Jk>y the ordinance referred to are In
"reality related as part of one continu
ous railroad, It is advisable to cancel
the grant contemplate, | by said ordi
nance as heretofore made, so that there
may be no outstanding grants or ease
ments affecting the property described
therein."

position I* Considered a
Good Plan
Tho Mißßcftlion In yesterday's Herald
Mint a division of the Mute of California
can bo brought about easily and nrnlo
:1:1:1111>■ through an agreement with Ban
Francisco and Alnmeda for the removal
„ r the cup I ill from Sacramento to Her
kelo.y has met with Instantaneous and
practically unanimous approval.
On the streets and throughout Los
\n i lei generally the lubjocl was dis
cussed yesterday, and to ail appear
ancea the sentiment in favor of the
creation of the state of South, m Cali
fornia IS grow Inn rapidly.
Opinion Is freely i xpressed that under
the plan proposed by The Herald divi
sion can be brought about with the least
possible friction, ami at the smile time
the object of, what appears to be „.■
desire of a large majority of ib" real'
dents of the northern section of the
.stale for a removal of the capital will
be gratified.
As yet there is a notlcable averalon
On the part Of many of the leaders in
business and professional circles of Lou
Angeles to be Quoted In favor of a di
vision of the state, but Alien confidence
Is assured many reasons ale given as to
why Southern California should consti
tute an Individual commonwealth.
Interests Not Common
The principal ronHon given Is that the
north ami the south in California never
have bail interests In common, and that
as lime progresses this condition of
affairs becomes more apparent. The
south. In years gone by, has been al
most completely Ignored by the north
as not worthy of consideration, ho it is
declared, but with the rapid increase In
population and material advancement,
Indicating a probability that the south
Will lead tln> north In both population
and wealth, there has arisen a spirit of
jealousy in the north against every
thing that pertains to Southern Califor
nia, with the proapecta that thin feel
ing will Increase in a ratio equaling
the advancement of the southern sec
tion.
Inning a casual canvass of the city
yesterday not an adverse criticism was
beard on the proposition to divide the
state, but the declaration was made re
peatedly that the subject was one which
the 1..0s Angeles chamber of commerce,
as tho leading civic organization of
Southern California, should take up for
consideration and agitation.
ft was reported yesterday that within
a few days the chamber of commerce
will issue a call for a mass meeting to
consider various subjects of vital im
portance to Los Angeles, and the belief
la expressed that at this gathering the
subject of state division will be tho
chief topic discussed.
Chamber Is Reticent
Many members of the chamber of
commerce have declared themselves In
favor of a separation of Southern Cali
fornia from the northern section of the
state, and they also hnve expressed trie
belief that the chamber should officially
take cognizance of the agitation, but
officials of the body declare that while
they have pronounced views on the sub
ject they cannot at this time discuss the
affair or say whether there is a proba
bility that the chamber will take any
action whatever in relation to the ques
tion.
Belief is expressed, however, by mem
bers of the chamber that tho sentlnieiu
in the body of nearly iuOO leading busi
ness and professional men of Los An
geles is strong enough to Induce the
board of directors to take the lead In
the agitation.
"I am heartily in favor of division,"
yesterday declared H. S. Baer, the well
known grape grower and a prominent
■member of the chamber of commerce.
'I am a native sou of California and
was born In San Francisco, and from a
sentimental point of view I am averse
to dismembering the Golden State, but
from a practical point of view and in
'justice to Southern California I am in
favor of the idea. The southern and
northern sections have nothing in com
mon, ami we of the south are tired of
the domination of the Ruefs and the
Merrlns of the north. As a rule, I inn
not in favor of the chamber of com
merce taking up political questions, but
it seems to me that this is not a
political subject and that the chamber
can with propriety not only discuss It
but take a leading part in agitating the
affair."
Bankers Favor Division
A. W, Sklnnei, vice president of the
American Savings bank and a director
of the chamber of commerce, declared
himself as most emphatically in favor
of slate division, to lie brought about as
soon as it can be accomplished. Ho
declared that the recent developments
in Sacramento showed that such a move
Is imperative, and that the south should
no longer be made to suffer by the
jealousy of the north, prompted by the
machine politicians.
\V. H. Workman, former city tre.-.n
urer ami now president of the American.
Savings bank, said that the only objec
tion he had to the division of the state
was baaed on his being an old Califor
nian, but he thought the time was ripe
tor agitation of the question.
"I won't say just what 1 think of state
division." said J. M. Kiiiott, president or
Mi.- First National bank and member of
tbe board of water commissioners, "but
1 will tell you thai I know man whom I
supposed to ba tho soul of honor go to
Sacramento and seem to try to do their
duty until then- comes up a question in
which tin- railroad is Interested, whrtn
the" fall down. This latest deal the
legislature gave us was the limit."
WANTS TO PLEAD GUILTY,
BUT IS DISCHARGED
Although h>' had Once pleaded guilty
to a oharge of patty larceny, Frank
Lewis, a negro, waj discharged by Po
iti-c justice Pradrlokson yeaterday on
account of Inaufficlent evidence.
Lewis was arrested several duyß ago
on a oharge of having stolen a small
aum »f money from the room of George
lialnes, another negro, at 1080 Central
avenue. When arrested l.ewin vigor
ously denied his guilt and when taken
to OOUrt pleaded not guilty to the
charge. At that lime ill,' arresting
officers, Qlenn and Stevens, remarked
they thought the man was wanted on a
serious charge In the eubt.
"Well, If you feel thai way about it,
i gueas i ma> as weii plead guilty, pay
lay line and then I won'i be hern when
you tind for huic whether i am wanted
in the east."
when the evidence againat Lewli was
preaantad n was found to be Inauf-
Relent and be was discharged,

lic works and engineer's department
will be asked to explain progress on
street work to the city council today.
Councilman Wallace, who has taken
up the campaign for better paving and
cleaning of -treets, especially in the
business section, called up the subject
yesterday morning and succeeded in
getting a motion passed to get defin
ite data from the two city departments
most involved when street work
comes up.
One of the first results expected is
that every street in the section between
First and Sixteenth streets and Pig
ueroa and San Pedro will be oruered
paved at once without the formality
of an enabling ordinance. This is to
be done under the city attorney's
recommendation that this is feasible,
subject to the right of the majority of
property owners protesting.

The City Gas Company of Los Angeles is actively engaged In preparations
for construction of a gas works and distributing system to supply the citizens
of Los Angeles with gas for illuminating and fuel purposes.
The manufacturing plant will be modern and of the best known construc-

purities, while the distribution system will be so planned and laid out that an
ample supply of gas at even pressure -will be delivered to all parts of the city
covered by the mains of this company.
The City Gas Company of Los Angeles, as its name implies, is a local
company, its stockholders being well known men of standing and responsi-
bility, who have subscribed one million dollars with which to inaugurate this

forthcoming for extensions until the entire city is covered by this company's

It will be gratifying to our patrons to know they are supporting and en-
couraging a strictly home enterprise, the stockholders of which are composed
of local citizens and taxpayers who understand and appreciate the needs of
the city and of gas consumers especially.
We respectfully ask the co-operation and support of the citizens of Los
Angeles by agreeing to use gas as soon as the company's plant is ready to
furnish it.
