Municipal Affairs
PETITION SUFFICIENT
TO CALL AN ELECTION
City Council Must Decide on Fi
nancial Measure Next
Tuesday
Contending emotions are likely to|
tear the council next Tuesday. The
Bnance committee will have an espe
cially bad day, for the city clerk will
report the referendum petition against
the new license ordinance as sufficient,
(md that the council must submit the
ordinance to a vote of the people either
at a special election or the next general
election, which will be about two years
hence,
On the one hand. If the council sub
mits the ordinance at a special election
called for that purpose* alone it will
cost about $12,000, and there is a bare
possibility that the public service cor
porations—which are hit hardest by the
license—will got out and work so hard
that it will be. defeated, leaving- the old
license ordinance in effect and the city
112,000 worse off. On the other hand, if
It waits two years, which is what the
corporations hope will happen, the city
will lose the additional revenue the
ordinance provides.
STAXD TO WIN
In either event the public service cor
porations and two or three of the larg
est banks are the only ones who profit.
Many teamsters and others who sigiiiil
the referendum petition on the assur
ance they would not have to pay any
license tax If they did, will find then
license tax Just as high now as before,
for the new ordinance repealed the old
one. and as long as the new ordinance
cannot go into effect, the old one is
operative.
The only changes in the new ordi
nance are" that those banks doing the
largest amount of business are forced
to pay a higher license, and the public
service corporations pay a much higher
license.
Two or three kinds of business on
which the license ordinance worked a
hardship, especially the private water
companies that supply outlying tracts,
were cut out of the new ordinance, but
as long as the old one is in operation
they must continue to pay their li
censes. _
HELP! OR KIDDIES WILL
HAVE EMPTY TUMMIES
Diphtheria Quarantine Is Placed
on Private Orphanage
Charitable people will have to come
to the rescue of forty little klddos are
going to be mighty hungry la a short
time They are the victims of a cruel
law although they have done no
wrong one of their number contract
ed a light cose of diphtheria and lo!
the health department has stopped in
and ] ut the whole bunch under quar
antine.
The children are the inmates of a
private orphanage at 1140 Angeleno
Btreet, conducted by Mrs. L.. J. AYilds.
Mrs Wilds has undertaken the work of
looking out for as many homeless lit
tle ones as she can. She has support
ed the home by securing contributions
from regular patrons, but since the
quarantine was established a week ago
Bhe has not been able to pot out and
gather In the sheekels. Consequently
the Mother Hubbnrd nursery rhyme
that the kiddies liked to hear in more
prosperous times is becoming too near
llzatlon and their little tummies
are nearly empty.
This sad condition of affairs was re
ported to the health department yes
terday by the quarantine officer, George
Miles, but the health department does
not know what to do about it. The
quarantine must be maintained for a
•while longer, as all the children hßve
been exposed to the disease. Thi y
are too numerous to send to the de
tention hospital' and the city has no
fund? to food the unfortunates.
BOARD PASSES OUT ARC
LIGHTS IN BIG BUNCHES
When it comes to placing street
lights in bunchos the board of public
■works doesn't need any instructions. It
upproved locations for sixty-eight arc
lamps yesterday morning, all in the
territory formerly called the Fifth
ward. A little matter of twenty lights
for the district south of Blauson ave
nue was taken under consideration for
<i few days.
City Electrician Manahan, who pre
sented .'i recommendation for the
lights, said the ones south of Blauson
avenue were not needed, as the ter
ritory was thinly settled, but the tax
payers who owned property in the
district were entitled to thai much
consideration.

News of the Courts
PLEADS GUILTY AND IS
RELEASED BY THE COURT
Judge Willis Orders Joseph B.
DeFord Discharged on
Check Charge

Brought back from a profitable Job
as chef in a Globe. Ariz., club to face
a charge of having issued a check for
(10 with no funds In the bank two years
ago, Joseph B. DeFord was arraigned
before Judge Willis yesterday morning
and pleaded guilty. On being placed on
the stand to explain, in view of an ap
plication for his probation, the court
came to the conclusion that DeFord
had been imposed on after hearing his
testimony and he was dismissed.
According to DeFord's story, he was
generous while under the Influence of
liquor that he gave his friends checks
when they asked for them, regardless
of the condition of his finances, and
when he sobered up he tried to pay
them. Joy rides during the hprße
lacing season two years ago were his
"long suit" while lie was drunk, anil
he became so pestered with bills pre
sented by chauffeurs, grocers, .friends
and others that he saw no chance of
paving them all.
OPT FOB ARIZONA
He left for Arizona and stopped
drinking. Being a stair builder by
trade he tried to get a job, but found
that high living had given him a "bay
window." He decided his shape would
better fit him as a waiter, and he se
cured a job as hi ad man in an exclu
: sive Globe club, where his "tips" made
his salary look like "30 cents."
He declared he had made arrange
ments to pay all his debts in Los An
geles county, but hearing that he was
to be arrested for uttering a fundless
check he beat the proces server to this
city to explain the situation, and de
clared to the court that lie only wanted
time in whirl; to pay everybody he
owed.
He had reformed, he said, and there
wen no more "joy rides" or long
seances with the "Mowing bowl" for
him. Deputy District Attorney Ford
supported his testimony and said he
was agreeable to giving him probation.
The complaint, he said, had bean sworn
out by Frank II Carpenter, although
the check in question was issued to J.
J. Doyle, who had never prosecuted
him.
GAVE MONEY TO PAY
I leFord declared he had given a third
party money to pay the check, but that
it had never been turned over to Doyle.
Further testimony as to the manner In
which DeFord had been handled by
race track friends was given, the
court came to the conclusion that the
district attorney's office was b ing
i. Ed as a bill colled Ing establishment.
JuJk<: Willis declared thai In view of
the fact i hat i 'Ford hud not bi en
prosecuted two years ago when he is-
Bued the tin ck, and undi r i hi 1 ut hi r
testimony, that it waa an lm] osltlon on
him to bring him back to thl i i and
cause him extra > Ford de
fended the district attorney's office by
.statins that Carpenter had
uch an aiiay ot e\ Idence th it charges
had been con i tain: i I leFord, but
under the circumstances he did not
think I leFoi a should ha re been ion
pelled tn return.
JuUgu Willis allowed DoFord to

change his plea of guilty to that of not
pnilty. and he was allowed to Join his
wife for the return trip to his job in
Arizona.
