TWO SECRETARIES QUIT SAME PLACE John P. Steele Refuses to Be \ Blamed for Errors of Others MAY IS VICTIM OF GOSSIPERS Policeman Walker Leaves De partment to Join Chief Eley's Fire Fighters Two executive secretaries resigned from the police department yesterday and made people in touch with the police ask "What's the matter?" John P. Steele, who had held the position of executive secretary since Alexander Galloway has been chief, re signed and left the place at 9 o'clock yesterday morning. The chief ap pointed O. H. May, a patrolman with the rank of acting sergeant, to the position, but before 5 o'clock last night May had resigned. Neither resignation was entirely voluntary. It has been known that friction existed between Chief Gallo way and Steele for some time, and the climax came last Thursday when the police commission appeared before the budget committee of the council and the committee found a clerical error ol $160,000 in the estimate of the police de partment. The chief considered thai the blame for this rested with Steele, and at a secret session of the commis sion following the discovery of the error one of the commissioners demand ed that Steele resign. He handed his resignation to the commission last night. In It he said that while he had been blamed for the error In the esti mate the blame was not properly placed, for ho had had nothing to do with making out the estimate. He de clared he did not desire to continue in the service and accept censure for the faulft of others. He wanted it under stood that he left the department with a clean record for honesty and ef ficiency, and If there was any doubt of this In the minds of the commissioners or the chief he did not want the resig nation accepted but demanded a trial. May seems to have been a victim of too much gossip. Someone told him something that someone else had said about one of the members of the police commission owning a half interest In a saloon that had been given to him for his influence in securing the license. May appears to have repeated this roundabout hearsay evidence freely, and Steele, who heard of it, was highly incensed because tha particular com missioner who was thus maligned was his particular friend. The commissioner heard of it almost as soon as Steele, and the commission reached the con clusion that May was not Judicious enough for the important position of executive secretary of the police de partment. Consequently May resigned, and his resignation was promptly ac cepted last night. F. E. Walker also resigned as patrol man, but he quit the force because he wanted to. In accepting tho resigna tion Commissioner Wellborn declared that Walker had made a good officer, but that he wished to leave tho force to go to the fire department. COMMISSION REDUCES DETECTIVES TO RANKS Reduction Seems to Effect Plain clothes Men's Health Reduction from the position of detec tive to the ranks seems to have a se rious effect on the health of the mem bers of the police department. Chief Galloway reported to the police commission last night that he had re duced Detectives F. J. Talamantes and T. F. Rico to the rank of patrolmen and ordered them to report for assign ment to a beat. The commission ap proved his action, but with the chief's report were petitions from both Tala mantes and Rico asking that they bo restored to til..' rank of detective. Both petitioners declared they were physically unable to walk a beat. Both have been members of the po lice department for seventeen years. Talamantes has been a detective for eight years and Rico for four years. They ask that if they cannot bo re stored to their positions as detectives they be retired from tho force on half detectives' pay. While no reason Is given for the re duction except "good of the service," it Is understood that tho commission ers have not been satisfied with these two officers for some time. Commis sioner Topham declares that he has been dissatisfied with them since they figured conspicuously in the arrest and prosecution of the Mexican revolu tionists, Villareal, Magon, Rivera and De Lara several years ago. DEATH EXPECTED TO CLAIM WIFE SLAYER Officials are of the opinion that George C. Luitweiler, awaiting trial on a charge of killing his wife and at tempting to take the life of his sister in-law, will be claimed by death be fore the date set for his trial, for they contend that imprisonment is hasten ing the Inroads made on the prisoner's life by tuberculosis. Though preparations are going on for his trial, Luitweiler does not worry over his condition, and is waiting passively for the end. NEW ORPHANAGE AT MONTEBELLO PLANNED Following the destruction by fames of the Los Angeles Jewish orphan asylum early yesterday morning the board of directors he'd a meeting last evening and two committees were ap pointed, one to Immediately secure temporary quarters lor the children and the other committee to raise funds with which to start the ( instruction and ash to completion a new orphan age at Montebello, the association having sixteen acres of ground . here which was given by the lato Harris Newmark. D. A. Hamburger was appointed chairman of tin. fund raising commit tee. S. G. Marshuta, president of the board of directors, estimates the loss on the contents of the building at $4000, while the damage to the building is estimated by members of ti ... tire de partment at about $3000. It'e am easy to secure a bargain in a used automobile, through want advertising, as it uaod to be—and still la— to secure a horse and carriage. f ' ■ ■'" ■ ,ii.

The petition asks the franchise be cancelled because the terms of the franchise have not been complied with, and to prove this is the case a copy of the franchise is filed with the petition. The petitioners cite five special in stances In which the railway has failed to comply with the franchise. They say it Is not as efficient as the best electric roads, but is the worst part of the Los Angeles-Pacific system; that it is not operated as a part of a through line from Los Angeles to Santa Monica; that the line through Colegrove Is used as the main freight carrying route of the Los Angeles-Pacific; that the right of way Is not paved or macadamized; that in case any part of the road is not operated or used as provided for that part of the road shall be forfeited. The committee of the board of trade that is handling the matter is composed of Seward Cole, Frank E. Wolfe, Dwlght Brooks, Dr. O. E. Sawyer and Cornelius C Brown. In speaking of the condition of the right of way Mr. Wolfe said last night: "The principal complaint we have against the railway is that it does not conform to the standard of the high way. For the entire distance of the railway through Colegrove the rails aro either much above or much below the grade of the street, and it Is Impassable except at some of the crossings where loose dirt has been thrown in." In the same connection the board of public utilities will send a copy of a letter received from the Los Angeles- Pacific, politely declining to take any action toward granting 5-cent fares until R. P. Sherman returns from a va cation. The board advised the railway company to grant 6-cent fares to Cole grove and to the city limits at Holly wood and Sixteenth street or it would take the matter before tho council and secure legal action. ■« • » EAST HOLLYWOOD ASKS FOR FIRE PROTECTION A delegation of citizens from East Hollywood appeared before the budget committee of the city council yester day on behalf of a petition presented In June to the council by the East Hollywood board of trade asking for an appropriation to provide fire pro tection for East Hollywood and vicin ity. Mr. Schneider, a member of the dele gation, spoke strongly in favor of the petition. Ho stated that East Holly wood is rapidly building up, that it now has a population of about 3000 and that the taxable property of the district last year exceeded $1,250,000, that within a radius of one-half mile of the corner of Vermont and Pros pect avenues nro no fewer than 800 houses and that East Hollywood is without fire protection. The nearest engine station that East Hollywood can look to for assistance Is located at Hollywood, two and one-quarter miles distant. The committee has taken the matter under advisement. FIRE DEPARTMENT TO COST CITY $823,337 Commissioners of tho fire, playground and public utilities departments were before the budget committee yesterday to explain their annual estimates. The city's financiers did not make much headway with any of the departments, for all explained the absoluto need of all the money they had asked so thoroughly that the committee could And no place to make a reduction. The only reduction worth while that was suggested was lopping $40,000 from tin- fire department's estimate for an underground conduit system for the bureau or fire alarm and police tele graph. This department has asked the biggest chunk of the city's income of any of the departments. It wants $823, --337. Last year It received $535,600. POLICE BOARD TO REFUSE BILLIARD HALL PERMITS No more permits for pool and billiard halls are to bo Issued by tho police commission fur an indefinite time to come. This policy was announced by the commission last night. An investigation by Secretary Mc- Keag showed that there are 180 pool and billiard halls In the city, and the commission believes tills number Is quite sufficient. Secretary McKeag was instructed to refuse all such ap plications. LICENSE INSPECTOR GIVEN SECOND WARNING For the second time 11. I* Varey, polico inspector of licenses, was repri manded by the police commission last night for allowing his hasty temper to get away with him and warned that If he is ever brought before the com mission again mi similar charges he will be dismissed. V. J. North, manager of the Mary land Casualty company, preferred charges against Varey because he had been too offensive in his manner of speech when inspecting his license. TO PLACE NATIVE TROUT IN GRIFFITH PARK STREAMS Native trout are to be placed In the streams of Griffith park if the state fish commission will supply the stock. The park commission yesterday voted to ask the fish authorities for trout. The Los Angeles river flows through the park for several miles, and there It is a real river and not the sand stream that it appears through the city. DENY APPLICATIONS FOR LIQUOR PERMITS A number of applications for liquor permits that have been pending before the police commission for months were denied by the commission last night and the applicants notified to renew their applications in forms to comply with the new liquor ordinance. These applications had been held up pending tlie passage of the ordinance. LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 2, 1910. POLICEMAN TO PATROL DANCE HALLS AND RINKS To Present Ordinance to Author ize First Lady Cop By the adoption of an ordinance that City Attorney Hewitt will presenl to the council today It will be made possible for a woman to bo employed on the police department. The woman who will be the first female in Los Angeles to legally weai a police star will probably bo Mrs Alice Stcbbins Wells. Mrs. Wells has been proposed for the place by the Friday Morning club and similar or ganizations. She has had experience In rescue work in Brooklyn and as a city police officer her work will be along similar lines. She will be es pecially assigned to dance hails, skat ing rinks and such places to see that no immorality occurs. Her salary will be $75 a month, $25 less than a male policeman, but she will not be expected to do some of the more disagreeable tasks that fall to the regular police. m » > COUNCIL DEADLOCKED ON HEWITT'S SUCCESSOR John W. Shenk and Guy Eddie Are Favored Candidates A new city attorney may bo named by the city council today to take Leslie R. Hewitt's place. Hewitt is ready to resign at any time the council is pre pared to have him do so and to appoint him as attorney for the harbor bureau. Apparently the only hitch that has pre vented this action by the council before is a division among the members as to Hewitt's successor. While the members are non-commit tal, it is understood that It is as equally divided as nine men can be. Some of them favor J. W. Shenk, assistant city attorney, and others are for Guy W. Eddie, prosecuting attorney. Before Hewitt's resignation Is pre sented and accepted the council will pass an ordinance providing for the creation of an attorney to the harbor bureau with a salary of $6000 a year. It is this place that Hewitt will step Into when he leaves the city attorney's office. ■» • » CLAIMS PUBLICATION OF LIEN NOTICE IS LIBEL \ - Contractor Asserts $13-000 Damages for Act An oddity In the way of a suit for libel was heard and taken under ad visement by Judge Conrey .of the superior court yesterday in the case of O.

PROTEST AGAINST DELAY IN GRANTING 5-CENT FARE Not Inclined to await the pleasure of the Los Angeles & Redondo railroad for -cent fares to Manchester avenue, 464 persons who use these cars yester day petitioned tho council to take speedy action. They protest against longer delay in compelling the railroad to secure a franchise if It intonds to use the city's streets. They call attention to the fact that the I.os Angeles & Redondo company is a. steam road electrified and that It has no franchise of any kind north of Slauson avenue, and has practically appropriated Second street, between Broadway and Spring, for a depot, to the detriment of traffic. CHARGES ARE ABSURD, SAY RESTAURANT MEN City Health Officer's Criticism ot Local Cafes Calls Forth Vigorous Denials Several restaurant men yesterday denied the assertion made by Dr. L. M. Powers, city health officer", that an effort is being made to restore the "comeback" clause of the old garbage ordinance, and that "comebacks" are being served now In many, restaurants. Among the denials received was the following challenge from a well known Spring street restaurant owner: ' Editor Herald: In a statement of today's issue of The Herald, head ed "Comebacks Served." I person ally take exception. You state among other things that Dr. Pow ers says the restaurants have a specially clean can for the "come backs" until they are wanted for the next customer, and then when the restaurant inspector's back is turned they are served to the next patron. Now to the point: Is Dr. Powers seeking notoriety? If not, why does he not designate said restau rants? To be (brief. Dr. Powers shouldn't class the innocent with the guilty and try to ruin their business. If there are any .restau rants doing such work and impair ing the health of the public there must be some recourse by law. The doctor should give his evi dence direct and bring the guilty to justice. The undersigned is a restaurant man, doing business in your city, and I believe I can honestly say, with 90 per cent of others in the same line, that any health officer is welcome to visit any part of their kitchens, and will help him to see that all food served to the pub lic is served in a sanitary and I wholesome manner.
