City Attorney Hewitt was instructed to fight the case to a finish. It was learned that Councilmen Betkouski, Whiffen and Stewart met with representatives of the telephone interests yesterday afternoon and that a proposal was made by the corpora tion that the city consent to an in junction, thus impounding the differ ence between the old rate and the rate fixed by the new ordinance, until such time as Judgment was handed down in the suit. The council decided that no such concession would be made. The coun cil, so it is stated, seemed favorable to the recommendations of the mayor's message of "Wednesday, which sug gested that the ordinance be so amended that the rates on extension phones In hotels be lowered, that a reasonably higher rate for desk phones as against wall phones be allowed and that the rates be fixed to apply to Wil mington and San Pedro, which are now excluded.

"I am strongly opposed to any secrecy being displayed by the council in any of its actions. The council was elected by the people, and the people have a right to know any and all of its deliberations," he said. "I, for one, have been opposed to these recent executive sessions and secret conferences, but I did not like to be considered rude by remaining away. I know that there are others in the council who will echo my sen timents." "I've attended my last executive ses sion of the Los Angeles city council," said Councilman M. S, Gregory at tha conclusion of yesterday's meeting. "At the next secret or executive session which is called I will be noted absent. I am thoroughly disgusted with theso secret tactics so recently exhibited. If we have anything to do it is nothing which we should be ashamed of. The electors who put us where we ara should be apprised of our delibera tions. "At the session today tho matters discussed could Just as well have been open to public hearing, but instead wo locked ourselves in the council cham ber as though we were ashamed of what we were debating. "I reiterate that I have never been in favor of executive sessions, and from now on any secret meeting will not have me as a member."

CITY ATTORNEY TO RULE ON CITY HALL SITE SALE Councilman Whiffen Makes His First Speech Before the Municipal Council Frederick J. Whiffen made his maiden speech in the council yesterday, Introducing a motion to instruct the city attorney to report to the council as to the possibility of 6elllng the present city hall without referring the matter to a vote of the people. City Attorney Hewitt was instructed to re port at the next council meeting. Coun cilman Whiffen said: "I made, in company with Messrs. Washburn and Gregory of the land and public buildings committee, an inspec tion of the Temple block, which has been acquired by the city. I was agree ably surprised to find that there were at least thirty rooms in the building which might be fitted up as offices for the various departments of the city government, which are now occupying rented quarters at an aggregate year ly rental of close to $40,0UU. "It will require considerable expense to fit up these quarters, and In order to form an idea as to the practicability of having tho work done, I would ask that the city attorney give us an opinion regarding whether the city hall may be sold without the vote of the people on the measure. In the event the sale is possible, it would not war rant us to expend a great amount of money in fitting up oflices In the Tem ple block." Councilman Andrews voiced disap proval of selling the present city hall site through any technicality, since Uio people had voted the sale down. Councilman Gregory eaid: "If It was known that the city hall property could be sold without the vote of the people It would at once bring an Influx of bids. I know of one syndicate that will offer a very high bid for the site. I was amazed at the wonderful opportunity to make city offices out of the Temple block, but the building ia in need of repair and a thorough clean ing before wo could house any city of ficials therein."

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 9, 1910.

Schaupp, who Is being tried on an Insanity charge, and Owen Parrett, her would-be husband, gave the bailiff In Judge Bordwell's court yesterday a difficult half minute's work. The scene was precipitated when Miss Schaupp advanced to shake hands with and say goodby to young Parrett, following another postponement of the caso. "None of that," objected her brother, grasping her by the arm. "I guess my friends are mine, nnd I'll speak to whom I please," she re plied. "Only to gentlemen," retorted tho brother. And with that both men rushed at each other. The bailiff was too quick, however, and a threat that both would be placed under arrest had a quieting effect. "Because ho is big cuts no Ice," mut tered Parrett as he was forced to re turn to his seat. The hearing will be resumed on next Wednesday. In the meantime an agreement to send Miss Schaupp back to visit relatives In Nebraska, away from all disturbances, may be reached. Owen Parrett is a young medical stu dent, who, before the insanity com plaint was issued, applied for and se cured a writ of habeas corpus for the young woman's release. Tho parents claim their daughter Is suffering from a religious mania. For a long period yesterday Miss Schaupp was consulted privately by Judge Bordwell, but the result being still un certain, another continuance was taken.

Payments on August 1 will be as though there had been no change in the ordinance. A hard fight between,, the attorneys representing the city and those for the company was first heard before the decision was reached. The city at torney contended the people should be given the benefit of the doubt un til it was proved otherwise, but Ator ney Hans, for the company, pointed out no harm would result to anyone if the money Is held by the court, but that unless this is done it never could bo collected In case the company won.

Coleby from Marie F. Coleby. The complaint Yas habitual drunkenness, to which the wife replied that, though she drank, it was always with her husband or by his consent. The real cause of the trouble, accord ing to Mrs. Coleby, waa the interfer ence of her husband's mother, who had for years been striving to secure their separation. Fear that th« daughter-in law would inherit some of her 1125,000 estate was said to be behind this. On the stand, however, the mother in-law told a different tale. "My daughter-in-law would come home intoxicated night after night," she testified. "It fairly drove my son frantic, and he was in ill health as a result. "On one occasion she told me of be ing held up at 2 o'clock in the morning by a highwayman, and when she had told him she had no money he replied that she had plenty of booze on board, even if Bhe didn't have any money." Other decrees granted were: David P. Henning from Charlotte Ilenning, Leonora E. Beck from Christian A. Beck, Frank W. Carpenter from Pearl E. Carpenter, Emma McKee from Sam uel H. McKee, and William E. Boggis from Cora E. Boggis. Alimony of $50 a month was granted to Mary A. Valla, who obtained a di vorce from Louis B. Valla the day before. Valla's estate, it was phown, amounts to over $125,000.

A Oberg appeared before Judgo Wilbur yesterday and quietly took his sentence of one year In the county jail lor breaking his pro bation. The wife briefly related how, practi cally every day since his probation in November, ho had returned at night under the inlluence of liquor, even go ing to such lengths as to hide a bottle beneath his pillow that he might have it during the night. All this Oberg ad mitted. A touching scene followed the sen tence, when, on kissing his wife good by, the small 3-year-old daughter, seeming to realize what It meant, held out her arms appealingly and wept in heartbroken manner until the father had stopped to comfort her. Mean while the sheriff stood by waiting to take his prisoner. MRS. DRIGGS WEEPS WHILE NEW TRIAL IS REQUESTED Eased on errors in the trial, as well as errors in instructions given the jury, Paul Schenk, attorney for Gertrude Driggs, who was recently found guilty the second time of forgery, pleaded until late last night before Judge Davis for a new trial of the case. For the most part, Mrs. Driggs sat silently weeping-, in decided contrast to her hopeful manner during the trial. Mrs. Thorbus, her daughter, sat be side her, her arm constantly around the waist of her mother, and at times she, too, gave way to grief. The motion was taken under advise ment. LILES' WILL CONTEST MAY BE SETTLED OUT OF COURT By agreement of the attorneys for both sides, the will contest of the es tate of Abraham B.

Councilman Bet kouskl expressed himself as being in favor of requiring dairymen to cool all milk to 60 degrees, while Councilman Andrews was undecided as to his opinion. Mrs. Charles F^rwell Kdaon. repre senting the Friday Morning club, the Ebell club and the Federation of Wom en's clubs, addressed the committee. "We have no desire," said Mrs. Ed son, "to ask for the passage of an ordinance that will tend to work a hardship on the dairymen supplying milk to Los Angeles. We are here hoping to get the co-operation of the dairymen in a right for a pure milk supply for this city. "The milk delivered here should be of a better quality than we have at present We intend to ask the city council to appoint a city veterinarian and four inspectors of dairies. It is our hope that the state legislature will puss a law compelling transportation companies to provide proper methods of refrigeration and transportation of milk." FIGHT OVF-R TEMPERATURE The provision of the ordinance which prtnoked the most of the discussion was the one requiring that dairyme:i keep the milk at a temperature of not more than 60 degrees from the time U 13 milked until its delivery. At yes terday afternoon's meeting of the health board that body went on record as believing that a milk temperature of not moii- than 60 degrees was essen tial to the welfare of consumers, but th:it owing to the want of proper con» ticil of transportation facilities under the present state law it would be diffi cult to enforce such a law. The board was willing to set a standard of 67 degree*, in order to not work an in justice on dairymen who live at a dis tance from the city. R. E. Tibbetson, treasurer of the Su perior dairy, informed the legislation committee that his company had no ob jection to the ordinance as a whole, but that it was believed that the sec tion requiring that the milk be cooled to 60 degree! was unjust to small deal ers, as it would necessitate cooling with Ice to meet the requirements of the ordinance. His view was opposed by Guy Cherry of tin- Chicago dairy, who held that all of the objections to the ordinance were made by "the milk trust," representa tive of which, he alleged, were present. Cherry said he saw a petition in the office of Dr. Gibbon of tho boald of health, asking that the maximum tem perature of milk be fixed at 60 degree*, signed by the representatives of 500 dairymen. ~ I S. A. W. Carver, business manager of the Crescent, creamery, pressed Cherry for elucidation of his state ment, but Cherry refused to answer his questions. Dr. Clark of the board of health said: "When we get a state law to back us up we are going to bring the tem perature requirements down to 50 de grees. Milk will then come Into the city at that temperature, or It will not come In at all. This Is an Important subject. We must protect the babies from the evil effects of Impure and im properly dispensed milk. . WANT INSPECTORS "One thing that I am In favor of is having a sufficient number of In spectors of dairies to see that cleanli ness la maintained at these farms from which milk is shipped into the city. "The dairymen «ay,"< interjected Dr. Cole of the board of health, "that un der climatic conditions in Southern California, It is impossible to bring the milk down to a temperature of 60 de grees. That is not so, for there are hundreds of cities throughout the south that are abfe to force dairymen to cool the milk far below 60 degrees. I do not see why Los Angeles cannot do likewise. I do not wish to work a hardship on milk dealers by a drastic ordinance, but what other southern cities are able to do should be no task for us. "I am strongly In favor of a tuber culin teat, such as Pasadena now lias. The dairymen protested strongly against this ordinance when first pro posed, but the dairymen of Pasadena are glad today that such a law exists. The statement made by the dairymen that the enforcement ot the ordinance we have under consideration would mean a milk famine is highly improb able." City Health Officer Dr. Powers WM in favor of allowing the standard to I" 1 made 67 decrees at present, hut hoped that by next summer the temperature requirements would be placed at 60 degrees. GOT HIS RECEIPT lie had run up a small bill at the village store, and went to pay It, first asking for a receipt. The proprietor grumbled end com plained It was too small to give a re ceipt for. It would do Just as well, he said, to cross the account off, and so drew a diagonal pencil line across the book. "Does that settle It?" asked the cus tomer. .. "Sure." "An 1 ye'ir nlver be nskln 1 for it op'in * "*■■> "Certainly not." "Faith, thin," said the other coolly, "an' I'll kape me money in me pocket." "But I can rub that out," said the storekeeper.
