First— We ..rge the adoption of an ordinance defining a wholesale liquor establishment to be a place where spirituous, vinous, malt or mixed In toxicating liquors are sold, served or given away to licensed retail dealers only, in quantities of not less than five gallons. Becond— We urge the adoption of an ' ordinance making It unlawful for the same person or his agent or employe to hold a saloon license and a restau rant liquor license at the same time; also forbidding the maintenance of a aloon and a restaurant In the same or adjoining or connecting rooms. Ordinances along the lines herein suggested are so obviously necessary and Just, as well as reasonable, that they ought to be adopted at an early date; and we stand ready to defend them by argument whenever your hon orable body Is ready to consider them. May Drive Wholesalers Out : | The ] proposed clause with reference to i wholesalers being permitted to sell only to retailers Is considered radical by liquor men.

'V.'* .""'.'••.- The proposed separation of restaurants and saloons is also an advanced step In the eyes of the thirst Interests. Councilman Healy wanted to know why drug stores were not mentioned In the memorial. Intimating that they, too, should have drastic legislation as well as restaurants. Chairman Newby said they were al ready covered by present ordinaces. The committee of the who'.e will dis cuss the memorial before any action Is taken thereon by the council, Mr. Wal lace remarking that there was much ac cumulated business in that committee. TRIED TO BUY TOWN ON $15 ACCOUNT IN BANK Edward Prescott, Who Purchased Jew elry, Clothes and Wheel with Checks, Weeps When Placed on Probation Edward Prescott, who recently pleaded guilty to drawing checks on a bank in which he had no funds, was arraigned before Judge Wilbur yesterday for sen tence. The defendant had made applica tion for probation and the court was dis posed to listen favorably to it. Deputy District Attorney McComas was asked if his office had Investigated the application for parole, and if they had any recommendation to offer. He replied that he had been present at the prelim inary hearing at Pomona, where the of fense was committed, and knew the evi dence in the case. Prescott, he said, had deposited JIB in the American National bank of Pomona early in the morning. After banking hours he went v the Whitney Jewelry store, bought two diamond rings and a watch and gave in payment a check for $195. The rings he took with him, but he left the watch to be engraved. Then he went to a bicycle store and passed another check for J4B. Next he ordered a $35, suit of clothes, and while In the latter place tried to get some cash on another check. In the meantime Whitney, the Jeweler, had met the cashier of the bank and asked him about the check. He was told that Prescott had only $15 to his credit and the check was worthless. While they were talking the bicycle dealer came along to ask the same question of the cashier. Prescott was apprehended. "What was the evidence as to the In toxicated condition of the prisoner," asked the court. "He was no drunker than I am now," answered kcOomaa, "and If let alone ho would have bought out the whole town. ' The defendant's counsel admitted that the story was substantially true, except that the prisoner was intoxicated and didn't know what he was doing. He had always borne a good reputation. Prescott broke Into tears when the court asked what he would do if paroled and promised to go to work and quit drinking. He was placed on probation for two * years.

MAY BAR OFFICE HOLDERS FROM CHARTER COMMISSION MAYOR HARPER FAVORS IDEA OF ELIMINATION Next Friday Revisers Probably Will Enlarge Their Number to Forty five — Some Favor Council men-at.Large Mayor Harper In asking to be excused from service on the charter revision com mission It Is believed voices the senti ment that present city officeholders should have no part In framing th« new charter. At next Friday's meeting it Is believed that an enlarged committee of forty-five will be suggested In order that ample division of the various subjects could be made in subcommittees. If the plan of the mayor Is carried out no officeholder and no man who is not eligible for election as a freeholder can sit or the enlarged commission. Two vital questions, with the commis sion are said to be the terms of railway franchises and the revision of ward lines. One plan Is to revise the lines without Increasing the number of wards. The plan would be to equalize the voting basis. Besides the nine councilmen the plan of some Is to add four councilmen at large on the theory that at present coun cilmen are concerned mainly with ward matters near to them rather than with the entire city's Interests. Councilman Healy will advocate a con troller with enlarged powers.
