An undertaking establishment may he far less Inviting than any other es tablishment, and yet we'll all have to go there In time LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, APRIL 12, 1910. Municipal Affairs REALTY MEN ASK RIHTG TO BID ON FRANCHISES Claim Proposed Restrictions Would Retard Growth of New Residence Districts Herbert Burdett, secretary of the Los Angeles realty board; Gilbert S. Wright and \v. vv. Mines, prominent real estate men, appeared before the i supply committee yesterday to proti against the council passing an ordl- i nance, now being prepared by the city | attorney, prohibiting the granting f street railway franchises to any but the pr-rson in Interest who Intends to own and operate the line. They stated thai such an ordinance would shut otT development of tracts of land) th.it it w:is necessary when a street enr liii" ua-. to be exti nded Into I new territory for the owner of the land [ to apply for the franchise, turn it o 1 r to the Huntlngton Interests and fre quently pay a bonus for the construe- I tion and operation of the line. If they were not allowed to do this any more, | they represented, many prospective sections of the city would be without street onr service, f"r the railways would not extend their lines unless the district was well bulli HJ». The matter is expected to come be fore the council at its meeting today, »nd the real estate men will present their case. Th ■ city council was Instructed to prepare the ordinance on recommenda tion of the board of public utilities. The ordinance is also to contain pro visions thut the npi'iii-ant for the fran chise must deposit $100 at the time th application Is made, to cover costs of advertising, and that the matter is to be referred to the board of public utilities to fix a minimum price to be asked for the franchise. REFUSE TO BID ON SMALL REPAIR JOB AT SAN PEDRO Four Advertisements Fail to Draw Offer from Contractors A city contract is fjoiiiK begging be cause no contractor feels sufficient In terest In It to submit a bid. The work contemplated Is a rearrangement of the ollic-s Of the city hall at San Pedro for the accommodation of the deputies Of I.os Angeles who are employed there. Muiifiing Superintendent J. J. Backus estimated the colt of the work would be jioiio. The council appropriated that much money and authorized the i i Of public works to advertise fnr bids. When the inds were received they were so much hlpher than the estimate that the In ard rejected them and nudver tlHOd. The third time the lowest bid was about $1500, anil the board asked the council for % rM additional to do thp work. The council instructed the board tn r> advertise again and insert ads In trade fiapen, The board did so and fixed yesterday morning as tile, time for opening the bids. When the time arrived there were no bias, contractors refusing to take any further chances. FRANCHISE APPLICATION NOT IN PROPER FORM Because the application for a spur track franchise OB Bait Sixth street Horn ('ert's avenue to the public mar ket Is not made in proper form the board of public utilities will return it to the council today without recom mendation. The proposed spur is a continuation of the Street railway now operating on Sixth street and is not properly a spur, so the board concludes aplicatlon for the franchise must be made under the terms of tho Hrough ton law and according to the city or dinances. The Los Angeles public market which petitioned for the franchise has been notified of the board's? action and will withdraw application today and sub stitute another In proper form. GARDENA ASKS FOR LIGHT Gardena citizens, In a petition filed with the city council yesterday, ask that body lo run electric wires from I.os Angeles to (iardena so that por tion of the city can have some light. The petition declares that more than a v»ar ago tho board of public works promised that electric lights would be Installed and since then City Klec trielan Manahan has been trying to Induce the I.os Angeles <Sr EtedondO railway to put in lights, and while the railway has promised the promises have not been fulfilled. TO CONNECT BUILDINGS If tho board of public works ap proves the plan and the proper pro visions are made to conserve the rights of municipal use and occupancy of the street, the board of public utilities reports it sees no object inn to grant ing the petition of W. B. Chanlierlain to be permitted to connect the Ham burger theater building and the Ham burger department store by a tunnel under Broadway. Application for this franchise was made to the council last week and the council referred it to the hoard of public utilities for a report.

MORE WORK FOR HUMPHREYS "Stung again." murmured W. M. Humphreys, Inspector of public works, yesterday. And well he might, for the park commission politely but firmly refused to take over the duties of city forester which had been thrust on the shoulders of the chief inspector. Un der the new ordinance Mr. Humphreys must act as city forester in addition to his other duties. BONDS ARE DELIVERED City Treasurer C. H. Hance yester day delivered to Kountze Brothers and A. B.

News of the Courts LOANS ORDERED PAID AFTER FIFTEEN YEARS Brother's Suit Against Sister-in- Law Brings to Light His Generosity Judge Bordwell rendered a verdict In i favor of the plaintiff in the suit of ThomaH W, Phillip* ,-ipainsl Jane M. Phillips, widow of his deceased brother, for the r< oovery of two notes, one for | $r.ooo mixi another for $14,000, in the ; sup rinr court yegterda^, The suit fol towed non-payment of the notes after the fifteen year*' grace allowed by the plaintiff for payment had elapsed. Phillips !iri«t loaned his brother a'irl the latter'a wife, through a kindly in tercut in their welfare, $5000 on prop erty in the Ban Paaqual tra<*t iind promised he would n"t col irct the note for ten years, if at the end of that time his brother and wife had not accumunlated $m,ooo or more 1 c would grant them another live years in which to make the payment, This note was issue! on Novcmtvr 20, ISBB. | In 1908 (mother loan of $14,000 on a j not", under similar term*, was granted to lilh brother by the plaintiff. en, September 80, 1908, he alleged that ; the property of ids brother and wife did not amount to $60,000. and in 190! the brother died, when tii«' estate was found to be worth $90,000, according to ; the plaintiff, upon which he brought ; srit to recover the loans he had made. . ( The defendants, consisting of Jane i M. Phillips, John Doe iind Mary Doc, contested the suit under the statute of limitations, and claimed that in 1003 the estate was worth $00,000 and the I' loins should have been collected at 11 that time. It was also contended that i the agreements regarding the date of I. payment of the notes wen- signed only I by the plaintiff. In eoinff over the facts in the enpo Judg-e Bordwell decided that It was not necessary for the defendants to hlki; tii. agreement, waving that the execu tion 'if the notes by the plaintiff was sufficient. He also disallowed the claim to evade payment under the statute of limitations and ordered judgment for the plaintiff. The defend ants, according- to his ruling, must pay the plaintiff $.'.OOO with interest com pounded annually, $14,000 with the pa me rate of Interest on $11,000 from ISO 3, and on subßequertt advances made to the decedent by Phillips, and $050 attorneys' fees. VIOLATOR OF PAROLE GIVEN ANOTHER CHANGE Physician Will Administer Special Cure to Victim of Drink Habit F. C. Shoemaker, charged with vio lating his parole by yielding to the liquor habit after ho had been pro nounced cured by a special process, is to be given another chance by Judge Willis, providing that he will go through another "special cure" pro vided by a physician whose name Is being withheld by the court. Shoemaker was orglnally found guilty ty of forgery and gave the liquor habit as an excuse for his violation of the I law. In view of the fact that the man had a wife and family to support and that It was his first offense, he was given probation after the "court's physician" had pronounced him cured by a new process, which makes the patient angry with those offering htm liquor, it is alleged. Shoemaker was released, and trust- Ing to the efficiency of the cure as though it were a coat of mail, he cir culated around with his friends. Trust ing to the cure, instead of his will, as he stated in court last week, he gloried in his freedom from the drink habit and before he was aware of It he had broken his parole by becoming once more under the Influence of liquor. He was found In this condition by an agent of the probation officer and w is once more haled to Jail. He plead ed hard for one more trial, saying he would use his will next time and firmly believed he could keep from drinking. The court was doubtful, but finally decided to make use of Shoe maker for another trial of the "cure," in an effort to find out If the process is as good as it Is maff* out to he Between now and next Monday, Shoe maker will be given the "cure" at high pressure, nnd if all looks well he vlll be released once more to see if he can be freed from the liquor habit. The defendant himself apears to be just as anxious es the court to stop him from drinking in view of the fact that his financial affairs are just be ginning to assume better shape than they ever have before. WIFE SUES FOR DIVORCE Mao Pratt filed suit for the nnnul ment of her marriage to Ferdinand C. Pratt In the superior court yester day, alleging that the defendant is unfit to be her spouse.

Mrs. Doak, an attractive and well dressed woman of modest demeanor, took the stand In Judge Button's court and told a story of her hus band's caprices which would do Jus tice to a Pittsburg millionaire. The couple were married In Clayton. Mo., on July 15, 18%, and the hus band's business affairs prospered un til he was interested In over a dozen big enterprises reaching from Alaska to Central America. He became pres ident and principal owner of the Pan- American Railway company, the Pan- Americnn Construction company, the Doak Sheet Metal work* of St. Louis and dozens of mining enterprises in the western states and in Mexico. He also owns ?0,000 acres of land in Shas ta county. In September of 1906 the plaintiff al leged that Doak acquired 15,000 acres of land on the shore of Upper Klam nth lake and that he passed much of his time In that part of the country, claiming he was looking after the prop erty, which she estimates to be worth J60.000. It was not until several years later she learned that he had built a hand some fifteen-room bungalow at a cost of $10,000, and she alleges that two house servants and a man and his wife to work around the place were hired for a second "Mrs. Doak," who was Introduced as such to the neigh borhood by her husband, according to the plaintiff. Mrs. Doak claimed that the fair co respondent was Mrs. Freda de Haven, well known in Los Angeles, and that her husband on various pretexts of attending to the affairs of the Oregon ranch disappeared for months at a time, during which he lived with the co-respondent in their sylvan nest In the most picturesque part of Ore gon. On discovering that something seemed amiss. Mrs. Doak hired detec tives to go Into Oregon and find out the exact situation, and a number of depositions were taken from natives as to the style of living indulged in by the millionaire. Following the testimony of the plain tiff In court yesterday the depositions were submitted to Judge Hutton, who retired to his chambers for a short time to look them over. After he had perused the contents of the letters and depositions given him, the Judge lost no time In awarding the plaintiff an interlocutory decree and the right to resume her maiden name. The defendant was not represented in court and while no specific figure was mentioned In the plaintiff's re quest for suitable provision in the way of property, it is understood that a substantial amount will be awarded her out of court by the husband. - .

Drink PuritasNow Plenty of Purs Water a Spring Require ment At no time Is It more Important that you have a reliable supply of pure water Ujan during the spring months. People used to take spring "tonics" to cleanse the system. Nowadays we do not like to take any more medicine than Is necessary. We turn to natural methods. Copious drinking of pure water Is one of them. Purltas Distilled Water Is the only relia bly pure water obtainable hereabouts. It Is soft, sparkling and wholesome. Its con stant use flushes the Impurities from the body. Purltas contains no minerals, nor any vegetable Impurities of any kind whatever. It Is Just pure wholesome water.
