BANK LICENSE
IS PLACED AT
CENT AND HALF
HOT DISCUSSION PRECEDES
COUNCIL'S ACTION
ORDINANCE FIXING FEE AT TWO
CENTS IS BEATEN
Councilmen's Ideas Widely Differ Re.
garding the Revenue Measure.
Several Amendments Are
Offered and Rejected
By a split In the council resulting In
a vote of 4 to 3, with Councilman
"Washburn excused from voting, all the
work recently done on the license or- •
dinance by the legislative committee
was nearly lost. Only by sacrificing
one-half a cent on the bank license,
after an ordinance fixing it at 2 cents
had failed to pass, did the majority
finally win enough votes to pass the
measure. Incidentally the warm dls
cusslon brought out the fact that the
; majority of the council is strongly op
posed to the system of special taxation
known as license, and only countenanced
' It as a necessary evil in order to help
out the treasury.
The license tax of 3 cents on each
$1000 deposits whs the rock on which
the council scraped. This particular
matter had been threshed out by the
legislative committee the day before
with a committee of the bankers, and
the legislative committee had con
cluded to let the tax stand as it was,
but when the matter was brought Up
in the council yesterday Judge Lusk,
chairman of the committee, declared
that after thinking about It a good
part of the night he had come to the
conclusion that 3 cents was a pretty
high tax and he would be willing to
vote for a two-cent license. He said
that at the 2-cent rate the largest sav
ings banks would have to pay about
JSOOO a year into the city treasury for
license fees, and he believed thUs was a
sufficient sum.
The Clearing House association banks
presented a protest to the council
against the adoption of the 3-cent fee.
Some of these banks, under the 3-cent
arrangement, would have to pay slight
ly less than they do at present, but
they also joined in the protest. They
suggested that it would be altogether
right if tho license fee assessed against
banks was stricken out altogether, as
the banking business was the only
form of mercantile business that was
forced to pay a license.
This brought a statement from Pres
ident "Works that he did not believe In
a special tax of this kind and that it
was all unjust.
Charles H. Toll, vice president of the
Security Pavings bank, produced a
number of telegrams he had received
yesterday morning from prominent
banks in about twenty of the largest
cities of the United States, These tele
grams showed that in only two of these
—St. Louis and Portland—were the
hanks charged a license fee at all, and
there flat rates were exacted, the maxi
mum being at St. Louis, where $200 a
year is charged.
"It is not right that the banks should
be charged a license fee and other lines
of merchandise, like dry goods and
groceries, be allowed to go free," said
Mr. Toll. "This tax can apply only to |
savings and state banks, as it cannot
■be assessed against the national banks,
and that makes the burden the harder
on those banks that have to pay the I
license. If a tax is levied it should be
a flat rate and not on the amount of ,
business done. Saloons are not charged
a license fee according to the amount
of business they do. The banks do nut i
need the special police service that is
required by the saloons. la It right
that a saloon should bo taxed only $100
a month and the Security Savings bank
$600 a month, as would be the result if
this license fee of 3 cents is made
operative?"
Councilman Andrews appeared to be
especially wrought up in favor of the ;
8-cent license fee.
"The now ordinance is absolutely
Just," said .Mr. Andrews in answer to
Mr. Toll. "Under its provisions the :

With Eczema That Broke Out when
but Three Months Old —Burned
and Itched So She Could Not Sleep
—Chance of Cure Seemed Slight.

CURE BY CUTICURA
EASY AND COMPLETE

"Our little daughter, when three
months old, began to break out on the
head and we had the best doctors to
treat her, but they did not do her any
good. They said she hnd eciema. Her
eyes became crossed from the disease
and her scalp was a solid soale all over.
The burning and itching was bo severe
that she could not rest, day or night.
We had about given up all hopes when
we read an advertisement of the Cuti
cura Remedies. We at once got a cake
of Cuticura Soap, a box of Cuticura Oint
ment arid ono bottle of Cuticura Resolv
ent and followed directions carefully.
After the lint dose of the Cuticura Re
solvent, we used the Cuticura Soap freely
and applied the Cuticura Ointment.
Then she began to Improve rapidly and
In two weeks the noalo came off her head
and new hair began to grow. In a very
short time she was well. Her eyes were
perfectly straight when she recovered
and have been so ever since. She is now
sixteen years of ago and is n picture of
health. We know the Cuticura Reme
dies cured her and have used them in
our family ever since.
"We used the Cuticura Remedies
nbout five weeks, regularly, and then
we could not tell she had been affected
with any disease. She suffered with
burning and itching and hard, scaly,
dandruff-looking scabs all over her head
and in places on her body. We used no
other treatment* after we found out what
the Cuticura Remedies would do for her.

little fellow has a better chance. Un
der the old ordinance the minimum
amount of license was $10 and the max
imum $50. This maximum amount was
assessed against the banks having over
$2,000,000 of deposits, Nothing was pro-
I vided for the big banks having more
than $20,000,000 on deposit. By perpet
uating legislation of this kind we would
be bleeding anarchy. I belli it is
legal to tax the dry good* man and
the grocer, and If we were doing our
full duty we would do it. i stand for
a fair and square deal for ail, and I
have outlined my position. 1 do not
care what the effect may be on me.
When you get tired of me you can
have my Job."
Mr, Andrews said some more to the
same effect, and when he had conclud
ed the council took Its noon recess.
In the afternoon Councilman O'Brien
started the ball rolling again by intro
ducing a schedule for bank licenses
that he said the bankers would accept,
His schedule provided for a sliding
scale, beginning with a minimum of
$10 a month for the smallest banks and
Increasing by fE and $10 to $250 a month
for deposits of $26,000,000.
Mr. O'Brien's idea did not appear to
meet the approval of the council, and
Councilman Gregory moved that the
amount be made 1% cents instead of 3
cents. This -nan seconded by Council
man Williams.
President Works again declared he
believed the system of special taxation
all wrong.
"We have a limit In the charter that
fixes the amount we may levy on gen
eral taxation, and we undertake to
piece this out by the special tax on
business. l am violently opposed to
this special tax. If we tax the banks
there is no reason why we should not
tax other merchants or the lawyers.
There is same prejudice against the
banks because some of the banks do
avoid their share of the general taxa
tion by converting their money into
non-a.«sessable securltes just before m
sessment lime."
Judge Works told of Instances he had
known of how banks dodged their di
rect taxes.
When he had concluded Councilman
Andrews amended the amendment by
making the fee 2 cents instead of lVa
cents. Councllmen . Andrews, Bet
kouski, L,usk and Works voted for this
and Gregory, O'Brien and Williams
against it. Councilman Washburn was
excused from voting at all, as he Is
president of the Equitable Savings
bank and an Interested party. The
majority vote was sufficient to carry
the amendment, but when the ordi
nance was put on its passage the same
vote resulted and it was lost, as live
votes are required to pass an ordl
nnncc
The'president declared the ordinance
lost, and the council proceeded with
other business, but Councilman Lusk
saw that the hard work of his legis
lative committee for weeks past had
gone for nothing, and he asked that
the miter be reconsidered. On recon
sideration the ordinance was adopted,
the provision for I*4 cents being sub
stituted for the 2-cent rate.

The names of the Wright brothers

LION RUNS AT LARGE IN
CITY! HELP! BWANA TUMBO
Beat the torn toms, call Bwana
Tumbo, a lion is running at large
in Los Angeles.
The beast appeared yesterday
evening, about 6 o'clock, at the resi
dence of Dr. E. Linton, who lives in
the northwestern part of the city,
between Griffith and Elysian parks.
Two employes of Dr. Linton's first
saw the animal, which they describe
as being a lioness of a bluish gray
color and much larger than a
mountain lion. Not being armed,
R. B. Campbell and C. M. Keaton,
the men who first saw the animal,
did not investigate closely but hur
ried to the house to procure a gun.
When they returned the lioness had
fled into the brush along the river
bank.
Both men declared last night that
they are certain the animal was an
African lioness. They said the
tracks were much larger than those
of a mountain lion.

TURN DOWN RULE
BY COMMISSION
CHARTER REVISIONISTS DE
CIDE FORM TOO RADICAL
FAVOR MILDER AMENDMENTS TO
PRESENT SYSTEM
Committee Chosen to Consider Expe.
diency of Giving Los Angeles
Women Vote at Munici
pal Elections
Commission form of government fur
Los Angeles was turned down lust
night by the charter revision commis
sion on the ground Unit it is too rad
ical. It was decided to follow the di
rections of the council and prepare
milder amendment?.
Bealdei settling the mooted amend
ment problems, the* commission took
action on the question of allowing
the women of Los Angeles to vote at
municipal elections. With the ap
pointment of a committee to handle
this phase of the general charter re
vision, the question of equal suffrage
became a real factor in the establish
ment of a new governmental system.
The policy eliminating the commis
sion form of government was adopted
on the report of a special committee
of the commission composed of An
derson, Works and Hewitt. This com
mittee reported that It believed the
commission form of government, in the
shape of amendments, would be too
radical a departure and, might not be
sustained by the supreme court as
bona lide amendments.
The report was a disappointment to
Commissioners Finlayson and Haynes,
but it was concluded that if the com
mission ultimately decides that a com
mission form of government is expe
dient at the present it will recom
mend that the council call an election
for a board of freeholders for an en
tirely new charter.
No further meetings of the entire
commission will be held until April 6
unless the chairman calls a meeting
curlier, but the real work of the com
mission will be done in subcommittees.
These committees were appointed last
night by Chairman Anderson, and are
as follows- Legislation, Finlayson.
Ifaynes and Wellborn; executive,
Hewitt, Haynes and Klnlayson; com
missions. Mathews, Hewitt and Works;
finance, Works, Wellborn and Ma*
thews; election*, Wellborn, Works
and Mathewa; utilities, Haynes, Kln
layson and Hewitt.
A special committee composed of
Finlayson, Wellborn and World wai
appointed to Investigate the matter
mid determine if woman'! suffrage <>"
purely municipal elections could be
Introduced into the charter. Two
members of this committee have made
.some examination of the matter miM
believe it cannot be <lone under the
state constitution.
An Invitation has been extended to
the public to make suggestions for
charter amendment*, and a special in
vitation has been given thoee organ
isations that participated in the char
ter revision work of 1908.
