B. Dunn, counsel for the Ilunt ington Interests, nnd George Kuhrts, chief engineer, appeared beforo the board yesterday for a conference. The Bpecial street under discussion was Seventh from Broadway to Fig ueroa, that the railway is now paving according to its own Ideas and not in conformity with the city ordlni The ordinance requires two layeri of vitrified brick on the. outside of the rails. The railway is using one layer of brick and it is not vitrified. The ordinance requires broken rock to be used in the roadbed and that the rock ■ballast bo grouted before the ties are laid. The broken rock is being used but not grouting-. "It is impossible to pet grouting through the ruck after It has been rolled," Engineer Kuhrts told the board yesterday. "The rolling tills the voids with smaller pieces of rock and when cement is placed on top it stays there and will not percolate to the bottom. It might go through (in inch or two but that would bo of n<> value for the roadbed under tho grouted rock ■would receive no benefit." "If you can prove to me that the grouting will not go through the roch I will recede from my position," an swered Gen. Chaffee. The board unanimously decided that the ordinance would have to be Obey d to the letter but Attorney liunn prac tically defied the board when he said that grouting the roadbed was too ex pensive a demonstration to niak" 1 r the benefit of the board and hinted that the railway would continue to pave according to it.-* own ideas.

TO MAKE WILMINGTON INDUSTRIAL DISTRICT City Council Is Asked to Pass the Necessary Ordinance To make the entire city of Wilming ton an industrial district, except a small portion of the northern part that Is to bo reserved for residences. Is tho plan of the 'Wilmington chamber Of commerce. A petition asking that tho city council pass tho necessary ordinance was filed yesterday. The small section of territory that is to be reserved for residences Is bounded by Vermont, Seventh, MeFarlnnd and the northern city limits and Keyes street. The chamber of commerce of Wil mington realizes that because of the situation of ths place on the inner harbor Wilmington is bound to become an industrial center and it wishes to encourage this idea as much :is I hie by opening the town wide in the matter of selection of sites for fac tories. BOARD STANDS FIRM ON ASSESSMENT OF TAXES Reductions Granted to Corpora tions Are Few and Far Between It was another bad clay for the cor porations before the city board of equalization yesterday for the cuts that were made wire few and very small. It may be that the board will make a large, reduction in the franchise as sessment of the Pacific Electric, for Sam Haskins, attorney for tho railway, yesterday offered to show the board that the auditor of the Pacific Elec tric had mad;' a serious' error in de claring that the railway bad issued $20,000,000 of stocks while there are only $10,000,000 outstanding. Assessor Mallard declared he had figured the franchise assessment on the basis of a $20,000,000 stock issue and had taken the- auditor's figures for It, but that if the stock Issue really was only $10,000,000 a big reduction should be made in the amount of the assessment. The Pacific Electric franchise is as sessed at $4,894,765 and on account of the error in the stock report the rail way wants this cut in two. This case will bo heard next Wednesday morn ing-. Hasklns, who also appeared as attor ney for the Los Angeles & Redondo railroad and asked that the franchise assessment of $718,000 be cut off. He showed that the railroad has no fran chise north of Blauson avenue, although it runs its cars to Second and Spring over the Log Angeles railway tracks. Because it haa no franchise he did not think it should pay taxes on one. This amount was assessed on the railroad's franchise to do and on the advice of the city attorney who fears that the city's collecting taxes on a franchise that does not exist may ham per him in proceedings ho intends to bring against the railroad to force it to secure a franchlso, the council con cluded to put the largest part of the amount on the franchise to be. It will amount to the same thing 1 as the rail roads will have to pay Just as much tnxes into the city's coffers whether the assessment Is made on franchise to do or franchise to be. RESIDENTS DEMAND THAT COUNTY PAY ROAD TAXES Residents of the Wllshire district lmve petitioned*the city council to col lect the money due the city from the county on the road taxes and use the portion that properly belonged to the Wilshire district as it was before an nexation. They say their streets have run down badly since their property was made s part of the city.

JAPANESE SUE SHIMBUN FOR $5000 DAMAGES Charge Paper with Defamation of Character Natives of Nippon apparently are keenly alive to the possibilities of libel suits, as they are. to other American customs and institutions, if one may Judge from the actions filed in the superior court yesterday by Yoshltacu chl Higashi and Rika Higashi, his wife, against T.

WELL-KNOWN TENOR IS SENT TO INSANE ASYLUM Charles T. Hendrick's Mother and Friends Tell Court of Strange Conduct Whether a beautiful voice shall bo heard only In tin insane asylum was a question which resulted in a sceno of unusual warmth yesterday in Judge Bordwell's courtroom where Charles T. Hendrlck was arraigned on tho charge of Insanity. Hendrlck. who Is said to be the pos sessor of a fine tenor voice which was one of the late Francis Murphy's greatest aids, is nearly Mind. He has become crazed, it Is alleged, as the re sult of the too ardent study of medi cine for twenty-five months. Mrs. Susan B. Hendrlck, the mother of the alleged lunatic, was In court testifying that her son had lived with her at Long Beach until he had driven her from her home. Then she em ployed I>wls ("ruikshnnk. attorney, to swear to a complaint charging him •with Insanity. She and other witnesses. Including Miss E. r. ami E. v Bveretta of Pasa dona, tnirl of Hendrick's alleged odd performances. His mother declared her son had reached the conclusion that there was too much tissue in his feet and to ri<! himself of that ob stacle had taken sun baths. This treatment ho followed by tearing the skin from his feet, she alleged, the act nearly resulting in blood poisoning. Mrs. Kred Porn of Los Angelas In terrupted the proceedings frequently, ptoutly protesting against Honrtrlck's being committed to an nsyltnn. Final ly, after she had berated Mrs. Hend rick until that Woman's patience \v:m exhausted, the latter told Mrs. Porn to go home and attend her own af fairs. Judge Bordwel] decided to send Hendrick to the insane ward at the county hospital until Monday. This also nettled Mrs. Dorn. who wanted him sent to a better place than that, she said.

' previously had placed it there. SPECIAL — TO Mayors and Police Judges Dear Sir: 1 know you have a problem to solve. I know that in every community there are a few per sons and in some communities there are a great many who drink to excess and many of these have become troublesome to the officers. Some of them are frequently arrested for drunkenness and you are required to deal with them. When you fine them—if you make them pay a line—you know that the money they are paying in many cases is money that has been earned by hard toil and is nearly always money that is ac tually needed by the man's family and himself for their support. If you sentence theso men "to do time" you know that the only effect will be to get them sob ered up to a degree, and the result of these jail sentences la to humiliate the person sentenced and cause him to lose what pride of will and self respect he may have left. Taking it all in all, I believe that you will agree with me that, punishment in these cases only aggravates the trouble. We certainly must all agree on this point. It is true the law, in a measure, makes a criminal of an Inebriate, and when a drunken man is brought before you you are face to face with this proposition, but the ridiculousness of the pro ceedings of starving a man's family to punish him for something that he cannot help, must appeal to you. I say "SOMETHING THAT HE CANNOT HELP" because in most cases this is true. If a man is repeatedly getting drunk it proves that there is something wrong with him. No pane, healthy man would repeat the experience of boberlng up after a drunk with the prospect of having to sober up in a Jail. The above statement cannot be emphasized too strongly. 1 have become so sure of this and mv experience and Observation as County Attorney, and for several years as State Senator, as well as my general observations of conditions, has caused me to thoroughly investigate this sub ject with the result that I have learned absolutely that excessive drinking is the result of craving on the part of the drinker and-this craving is caused by the stomach and system being poisonea by alcohol. I have also learned beyond any question thai this craving can be removed and the drinker cured and made to be Just as healtliy and just as free from the use of liquor as he was before he drank nnv In fact I know of hundreds of cases of men who have been treated and cured. Many of' them wee men who were frequently in police court. They were cured by a three days' treat ment without hypodermic injections, by the use of harmloss medicine, and it would simply amazo you to witness the change in many ol these men, cured of the craving for drink. Nearly every man has at once settled down to an industrious and useful life. The cure I sp-ak of is the NEAL THMBE DAY DltlNK 11A1UT CURB. I have become so convinced of its efficacy that I have !»■• n devoting nearly all of my time for the past six or seven months, ana I have put a large amount of money into pushing It along. We now have Institutes at Dcs Moinea, Davenport and Sioux City, lowa, and at Omaha, Nebras ka and there are sixteen other- already in operation extending from New York City to San Fran cisco and from Minneapolis to New Orleans, and within six months wo will have them in operation In every state in the Union. Now brother, what I wan; you to do is to Investigate this matter. I think I have solved the problem for you which I mentioned at the commencement of this letter. I want you to get th.9 drunkards of your city cured, and you are in a position to do more in this direction than any other person cm do If you have any doubts about the efficacy of the Noal Cure, I want to remove, them. V eood way to satisfy yourself about it is to get some fellow to take the treatment. If you havo a case on hand that, if cured, would convince you, write me abuut it, and I will try to make arrange ments to hmve him treated. I want you first to satisfy yourself, for I know then when you do you will find that the NEAL THREE DAY DRINK HABIT CURE is the greatest boon to humanity of the age. I want to hear from you and I want to get your influence at work on the poor wretches who are cursed with the craving lor drink. I realize that every one of them have friends and most of them have dependent families who are grieving, and 1 know the Neal treatment will restore them. Write me. I am. Yours for humanity, Atlantic, lowa, July 11, 1910. JAS. E. BRUCE. BDWY.4944.*^^BROADWAY cor. th. LOSANGSLfX ~Store Closes Today 12:30 200 Prs.
