And the lawsuit was lost by the Southern Pa cillc Railway company, too. Theodore li. Helnauer's complaint against tlie railroad included an old story of how, while driving in a wagon drawn by two horses March 1. 1909, at the intersection of Nadeau an.l Ala meda street, the shoe of one of the ani mals was caught in the tracks and be fore it could be extricated a train had struck the animal. The horse was so terribly injured that it was necessary to kill it, thus entail ing a loss of $160, tie- value of the ani mal, upon the owner, lie said, in ad dition to that, tho other animal was Injured also, so severely that while it formerly had been appraised at $125 its value decreased to $50. Damages to the harness were esti mated at $26 and to the wagon at $10, and claiming that he was .Hit of work for eight days because of the accident, and valuing his labor at $5.50 a day, Heinauer thought $44 proper remunera tion for that. Altogether he estimated that $314 was due him, but ho was willing to accept $299.99, although he did not retract as sertions that the track wag out of order and that no signal of the ap proach of the train had been given. It developed in course of the testi mony-taking that tho other horse, the value of which had been reduced to $50 by the accident, had died since, and in rendering judgment against the rail rend Judge Hervey ordered that before a settlement was made Its value Should he added to the damages to be awarded Heinauer.

Municipal Affairs 5-CENT FARES WANTED ON TWO RAILWAY LINES Los Angeles & Redondo and the Los Angeles-Pacific Are Before City Council Two electric railways were on the carpet before the council yesterday and the real complaint against both was that 6-cent faros hail not been printed, although the question cf fran chises was the chief topic of argument. Residents of the vicinity of Manches ter venue wanted the council to force the Los Angeles & Redondo to reduce tho fare to Manchester avenue to 5 cents straight. A 5-cent fare is grant ed to that point when a twenty-ride ticket is purchased. S. M. Haskins. attorney for the railway, declared that the Los Angeles & Redondo Is losing money and cannot afford to reduce the fare. A special committee of the council, composed of O'Brien, Betkouskl and Whlffen, will make an investigation. This railway has no franchise north of Slauson avenue, although it uses city streets for its cars as far as Second and Spring. This Is being used as a ley. to force the 5-cent fares. The Colegrove board of trade asked the council to declare the franchise of the Los Angeles-Paciflc through Cole grove void because of failure to com ply with the terms of the franchise, and this was referred to the board of public utilities for Investigation. Cole grove citizens want better service, bet ter equipment and 6-cent fares. One concession was obtained from the Los Angolos-l^aolfic yesterday when that railroad offered to make a good sixty-foot street from Sunset boulevard to Hoover street, where it now has its tracks, if the property owners will deed it a right of way through the strip. The company thought it did have a right of way through this lot, but slept on its rights. The Interested property owners bought the strip of land with the tracks on it while the company was asleep, and now say, "If you will make a. street through this lot we will deed you a right of way." The railroad has agreed to the terms. MAYOR RETURNS TO APPROVE CITY PAYROLL Saves Cost of Rubber Stamp for R. M. Lusk, as Acting Mayor of the City In order to save the city 7 cents for a new rubber stamp Mayor Alexander yesterday paid out considerably more than that from his own pocket in rail road fare and returned from his moun tain retreat to sit at his own desk in the city hall for the day. Incidentally the mayor also saved considerable time by coming Into the city, and the city employes will get their pay much quicker. When Mayor Alexander is on the job his name is stamped on the payrolls and the salary, demands with a rubber stamp. This stamping is clerical work and is done by F. G. Henderson, the mayor's secretary. Bit If the mayor Is not ln the city his stamp cannot be legally affixed to the payrolls and de mand:. Had he not returned It would have been necessary to have a new stamp made for R. M. Dusk, acting mayor, or he would have had to sign e:.c'h demand with pen and ink, a mat ter of no small consequence, us there are more than 2000 of them. The mayor's return to the city also gave Judge Dusk an opportunity to act in his own official capacity as pres ident of the city council. Mayor Al exander returned to his aerie in the mountains last night and will stay until the end of the week, when he will return for good. He feels refreshed and has gained in weight in the last ten days he has been resting. BONDS TO BE INSURED WHEN SENT TO NEW YORK Will Be Forwarded Either by Mail or Express ■Unwilling to risk $1,520,000 worth of Owens river bonds to the keeping of •ne man on the long Journey from Los Angeles to New York, W. J. Washburn, chairman of the finance committee, yesterday induced tho coun cil to use methods of transportation for tho bonds different from anything done before with this kind of secur ities. They are to be sent either by express or registered mall or insured. The express method will cost about $1500, while the former method of sending them to New York in the i are of City Treasurer Hance cost less ' than $500, but Mr. Washburn believes that the money the Insurance will cost is well worth spending, as it will cover any possible loss. The final resolution selling the re mainder of Class "F" bonds and a part of Class "Q" bonds to the New York bond buying syndicate and the New York Life and Metropolitan In surance companies, was passed by the council yesterday. This closes the deal, all except delivering the bonds and turning the money into the treasury. PROVIDES FUNDS FOR PAVING CROSS WALKS The city council yesterday voted to pay the cost of cement sidewalks at stroet Intersections and told the fin ance committee to find the $3500 that the city engineer has asked to defray tho expense of these intersections for the next year. The new sidewalk Improvement law, known as the Grove L. Johnson set, prohibits assessing the cost of street Intersection sidewalks against property owners In the assessment district, and some time ago tho council decreed that tho city should not pay the cost. Tho engineer called attention to the fact thai this would leave these inter sections without sidewalks of any kind and suggested a reversal of the policy. Tho council believes the legislature will repeal the Johnson act this win ter. AVERS HEWITT FAVORS GARBBAGE CONTRACTOR Atorney Asserts City's Adviser Is Prejudiced-Residents Ask Removal of Station Intimating that the city attorney was so prejudiced In favor of Charles Alex ander, tlie garbage contractor, that he would not give an unbiased opinion on the question of whether Alexander had violated tile terms of his contract. At torney Gcsner Williams yesterday pro tested against the council referring the mayor's message on garbage to the city attorney's department. "Every action brought against this garbage contractor has been vigorously defended by the city attorney," he, said. "In every case when a matter touching on the garbage contract has been re ferred to the city attorney Mr. Hewitt's opinion lias been adverse to the men Who are fighting it. I respectfully ask that it bo not referred to him, for I know what his opinion will be in ad vance. Bend it to tho board of public works, for that body has final juris diction." Mr. Williams represented a number of property owners in the vicinity of An derson and Aiiso streots, where the garbage loading station is located, Who are trying to Induce the council to make the garbage contractor move elsewhere. This matter was brought up before the council yesterday morning by a message from Acting Mayor Dusk, who pointed out the unsanitary conditions of the garbage loading station and the effect it was having on tlie health and property values of the neighborhood) and urged the council to take action quickly. He suggested the city lease a few acres of ground away from anyone where the loading station could bo placed without offense. In spite of Mr. "Williams' protest the matter Was referred to the public wel fare committee and the city attorney. The welfare committee will meet Thurs day afternoon at 3 o'clock to consider the matter. CITY COUNCIL PLANS FOR TWO CITY HALLS May Rent Former Hamburger Store Site for Homeless Departments Los Angeles may have two'city halls if the plan that Is forming in the minds of the members of the supply committee, and especially Councilman Williams, chairman of the committee, Is realized. This plan is to lease what is known as the old Phillips block en North Spring street, where Hambur ger's department store was formerly located. . If this building is leased the depart ments outside the city hall, for which the city must pay rent in other build ings, will be moved into it and a big saving made in the rent item. The city now pays $40,000 a year rent for office room outside the city hall, be cause the hall is too small to accom modate all the departments. The Phil lips building can be secured for $1400 a month, or less than half, what the city now pays, and it will provide am ple room for all the scattered depart ments. Then, too, the supply committee con siders It will be an excellent location for a municipal storehouse, and soma parts of It can be used for this pur pose, even with the homeless* depart ments ln It. It Is not the Intention of the commit tee to make any long term lease of tho building, but to rent it only until such time as a new city hall can be built on the Temple block site. It will be several years yet before such a building can be constructed, even with greater speed than is usually given to such contracts, and in the meanwhile the question of rent Is one that the council will have to solve. RESTAURANT LICENSES ALL VOID, IS RULING An interpretation* the now liquor ordinanace, as far as it affects res taurants, was Issued by the office of the prosecuting: attorney yesterday and declares that outstanding restaurant liquor permits are not void by reason of the now ordinance, but that holders of such permits must apply for new ones in conformity with the now law, anil that they must designate whether they wish the No. 1 or the No. 2 class. Under No. 1 they are permlttted to sell short drinks as well as bottled poods with meals, and for this privi lege must pay $100 a month, the same as a retail saloon. Class No. 2 can sell only in original packages of not less than half a pint and must pay $50 a month for the privilege. BUILDINGS ON MUD FLAT MUST BE FIRE PROOF Only a little piece of Wilmington Is left lii the flre district through an ordi nance adopted by the council yester day. This little piece, in -which noth ing but an absolutely fireproof struc ture, can bo erected. is a small mud flat along the water front. That is why this piece was selected. Wilmington's flre district was No. 3, and in order to keep the number alive bo that It can be enlarged at any time It was defined as the mud flat. It is the council's Intention to take Wilmington out of the fire restrictions and encour age building there. THREE ORDERED DEPORTED Leong Kee, .loom?
