John P. Steele Refuses to Be
\ Blamed for Errors of
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.
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.
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.
Following the destruction by fames
of the Los Angeles Jewish orphan
asylum early yesterday morning the
board of directors he'd a meeting last

Colegrove Board of Trade Asks
City Council to Cancel
Cancellation of tho franchise of the
Los Angeles-Pacific Is asked of the
council in a petition submitted yester
day by a committee of the Colegrove
board of trade. 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.

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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

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

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. W. Butler against L. Ernest
Phillips, whose firm is known as the
Phillips Heating, Ventilating and Man
ufacturing company.
The plaintiff argues that by the Is
suance of a mechanics' Hen against him
by the defendant, and for its subse
quent publication in various commer
cial Journals, he was branded as a
debtor when It practically was under
stood between the parties to the suit
that long credit was due him.
Butler Is a contractor, and with him
as a party to the mechanics' Hen was
named Mrs. Lucia L. Blewett, by
whom he was engaged In the con
struction of a house in the Forest Park
subdivision. Butler thinks $13,000 dam
ages will set him right In the eyes of
the world. j

He had not asked for probation and

it had been passed. One year is the

Police Commission Issues State
ment Regarding New Law
Now in Force
Social clubs, wholesale drug houses
and other places selling liquor that are
required to secure permits under the
new liquor law must make their ap
plications to the police commission at
once. This ultimatum was Issued by
the police commission at Its meeting
last night, and in order that the ap
plicants may know what to expect,
issued the following statement:
"For the information of all con
cerned the following is a brief synop
sis of the new liquor legislation now
In force and effect in this city, and
the construction placed thereon by the
board of police commissioners:
"That holders of existing retail and
wholesale liquor establishments license
permits are not required to make ap
plication for a new permit prior to
June 30, 1911, except in the case of
change of location. In case of change
of ownership at un existing location
the purchaser must, however, In every
case comply with the requirements of
the new ordinance; 'that is, the filing
of a proper application, attaching
thereto sketch of the premises, same to
be approved by the board of police
"That all restaurant liquor estab
lishments of both classes must apply
for a permit, following the require
ments of the new ordinance with the
class of business they wish to conduct.
That former holders of restaurant
liquor license permits up to and In
cluding July 31, 1910, are to understand
that same are now null and void, but
they will be permitted to continue said
business pending the filing of an ap
plication if said filing is not later than
Monday, August 8, 1910.
"That social clubs desiring to contin
ue liquor selling must have their ap
plications on file in the office of the
secretary of the board of police com
missioners by not later than Monday,
August 8, 1910, or cease selling and
giving away liquor until they receive a
proper permit.
'That all wholesale, drug store liquor
establishments, breweries, malt bot-
tllng liquor establishments and winer
ies must, should they desire to con
tinue business, have their applications
for a license permit on file with the
secretary of the board of police com
missioners by Monday, August 8, 1910,
or cease doing business.
"That all hotels desiring to conduct
the business of a hotel liquor estab
lishment must file a proper application
In accordance with tho provisions of
this ordinance.
"No consenting frontage is required
on any application for a liquor permit,
but that protestants must secure more
than half of the aggregate of the front
age on both sides of the street be
tween the two nearest intersecting
streets to prevent granting a permit."

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

backs" until they are wanted for

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

ing the health of the public there

The doctor should give his evi
dence direct and bring the guilty

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.
