TO ASK $10,000 FOR
Fire Commissioner Owen Will
Present Request to the
City Council
Flre Commissioner F. V. Owen will
go before the city council Tuesday
and ask that body to find Some means
of appropriating at least $10,000 to pro- i
vide for the new headquarters of the i
lire alarm bureau in the proposed en- |
gine house in Figueroa street near |
Seventh. The budget provides $•»,
--000 lor the engine house and it is tho j
intention to provide quarters in this
engine house for the flre alarm and
police signal bureau but no money has
been Bet aside for the enlargement of j
the bureau. (
Something will have to be done very
soon, in the opinion of Mr. Owen, who
ls an expert flre alarm man. The '
council has provided for 13» now sig
nal boxes for the pollco and flre de- '■
partments but Mr. Owen says there is |
no way to handle them when they are
installed. The present system Is now |
overloaded and while It might bo pos- j
sible to hitch about 25 of these new i
boxes on to the system It would b« |
impossible to take euro of any more. I
The cables are now about up to their j
Copies of the report made by Mr. |
Owen to the flre commission last i
Thursday have been made and mailed
to each member of the council. In this
report Mr. Owen, says:
"The present central office ln the
city hall was condemned over five
years ago, as Inadequate. Since that
time, the city has grown so that what
was Inadequate then • has become
doubly so, from the standpoint of ca
pacity and efficiency.
"To remedy this condition, it was;
proposed to establish a new headquar
ters central office, at Seventh and
Figueroa streets, especially designed
for a central office that would accom
modate all of tho present equipment,
the university system now ln course of
construction, and all extensions and
additions that might become necessary
in the future.
"As the necessity for this new cen
tral office is bo great, and the facts
not generally known, I am'taking the
liberty at this time, of laying before !
you some of the reasons that lmpell
this change.
'It happens that the system In Its
entirety has been passed upon by a
competent and painstaking board of
engineers, and the results of their in
; vestigations have been embodied in
on exhaustive report to the committee
on flre prevention of the national
board of flre underwriters. These en
gineers spent three months investigat
ing the conditions ln Los Angeles, and
their carefully prepared report Is en
titled to consideration.
"I desire to quote a small portion
having to do directly with the matter
in hand. They say on page 33 of the
" 'Conclusions: The lire alarm
systems are properly a part of the
fire department, and are well main
tained. There are three systems,
San Pedro necessarily having a
separate system with its own cen
tral office, but the need of two
systems in the city proper does not
exist. This arrangement will In
volve the use of two central offices,
re-transmlsslon of many alarms,
much duplication of work, and will ■
require a larger flre alarm . force
than would be needed for a manual
system covering all the contiguous
and closely built up part of the
city. The system now being in- *
stalled In the university district
Is so radically different ln design
that lt cannot be combined with the
older system now in use, and will
have to bo operated independently
as lon gas it is used.'
" 'The automatic - central office
equipment in use In connection
with the older system was consid
ered by the engineers of the na
tional board ' as Inadequate five
years ago, and the automatic re
peaters and many box circuits are
overloaded. . •
The present location of head
quarters is very unsatisfactory;
the city hall ls not of fireproof
construction, is without window
protection, and would offer slight
resistance to a serious exposure
flre. Another most undesirable fea
ture of the } present system Is the
use of leased wires ln telephone
cables • for underground circuits.
This is v^jectionable, because the
wires are of too small size, requir
ing the use of two or more on each
side of a circuit, the Insulation of
the cables Is paper, which has
proved less reliable than rubber for
flre alarm service, the wires arc
carried Into telephone exchanges
and are frequently tampered with
by telephone employes, and It In
volves running flre alarm circuits
inside all kinds of buildings ln the
business district.
On page 61, under recommendations,
the report says:
• "That flre alarm headquarters be
removed to a fireproof building es
. pecially constructed to reduce as
far as possible all liability of In- __.
terruptlon of service.
"That a semi-automatic and man
ual central office equipment be In
stalled to serve all of the city ex
cept Los Angeles harbor, and pro
vide for all future extensions.
"The report frequently refers to the
headquarters being 'hazardously locat
ed,' to 'box circuits badly overloaded
and several excessively long,' and to
the flre alarm system generally as
'entirely Inadequate.' The . equipment
is found in good condition, and service
good. - ■, •
"Sooner or later a new central head
qcarters must be provided; also an un
derground cable system. But the cen
tral headquarters necessarily comes
first, and some provision should b?
made Immediately for a start on it,
because of the extra cost and danger
involved tn the present location and
Inadequate equipment. From the
standpoint of economy alona, the new
headquarters is necessary; from the
standpoint of efficiency it is absolute
ly needed; from the standpoint of safe
ty to property, public and private, it
is demanded. Every day it Is put oft,
adds to the expense, adds to the in
adequacy and adds to the danger of
partial or total loss. '
"From the foregoing only one con
clusion can be arrived at, to wit: The
necessity of asking the city council to
provide, in this year's budget, a por
tion of the cost of a new - headquar
ters central office, to be located in
the engine house proposed to be erect
ed at Seventh and Figueroa streets."

Desmond's Backers State Con
tractor Js Losing Money

Raise the price of meals on tho
aqueduct from 25 to 30 cents or It will
be necessary to cut some of the Items
from the menu. This is what the
wholesalers who are backing D. J.
Desmond, the mess. contractor on the
aqueduct, told the advisory commit
tee of the aqueduct.
The items that It will be necessary
to eliminate are butter, eggs, smoked
meats, canned salmon and all green
vegetables except . such staples as
potatoes, onions, etc. The sweetening
for the tea and coffee must also be
mixed in the kitchen, instead of put
ting sugar bowls on the tabic where
the men can help themselves. These
changes are made necessary by the
great increase in the price of food
stuffs, according to the wholesalers.
But the standard of the meals must
not be lowered, General Chaffee, chair
man of the advisory committee, told
the wholesalers and the board of pub
lic works has the last word in the
matter for Desmond's contract says
the meals must be satisfactory to the
board and any lowering of the stand
ard would not be satisfactory. /
General Chaffee and President Hub
bard of the board of public works
would Increase the price of the meals
to the 30 cents demanded, but W. M.
Humphreys, the third member of the
board ls opposed to the Increase and
has emphatically stated he will not
consider It. Tho two votes would ac
complish the Increase but the board
does not like to act without a unani
mous vote. '■ i- "■ ' • ■
But figures presented to the advisory
committee tend to show that the mess
contractor Is losing money and would
be glad to be relieved of the contract
unless the price of meals is Increased.
The board of public works has con
sidered the advlslblllty of the . city
again feeding the men as It did be
fore the contract was awarded to
Desmond, but nothing definite along
this line has been done.

Dr. Powers Declares Disease Is
Not Prevalent Here
Infantile paralysis that appears to
be prevalent in the northern part of
the Pacific coast and in the eastern
cities, has been diagnosed as "anterior
polyo myolltls," by Dr. L. M. Powers,
city health officer, and Dr. Powers
further adds that Los Angeles is al
most entirely free of this peculiar dis
"I have learned of only one case In
the whole city in the last two weeks,"
he said.
"Anterior polyo-myolltls is not a new
diseases, although it Is only recently
that the layman has begun to hear
much about it. The disease known
as infantile paralysis, is perhaps as
old as any other of which we have
record, but It has only been lately
that scientists have turned their at
tention to lt with the purpose of dis
covering its cure. It Is like diphtheria,
typhoid and other diseases were a few
years ago, before the germ of the
disease had been discovered and the
cure found.
"Experiments are going on to find
the germ of this disease. We know
very little about lt now and the doc
tors are groping about ln the ex
pectation of learning more. All this
work will result in accomplishing the
desired result some time. . Dr. Flexner
of the Rockefeller institute is 1 among
those scientists who are try Ing. to In
crease the world's knowledge of an
terior polyo-myolltis.
"The present stir about this disease
has probably resulted from the better
measures of sanitation that are every
where being employed. We learn
more about sanitation every year than
we do of any other science. Los An
geles Is likely to continue to be freer
of this Infantile paralysis than other
. portions of the country because of the
dryness of th« climate."

Asphyxiation Foiled by Wife, but
Hurls Himself Before Train
After making a futile attempt at
suicide by asphyxiation, E. Devolon,
proprietor of the Bee Hive grocery at
Pomona, threw himself In front of the
Golden State Limited train at that
place shortly before noon yesterday
and was killed instantly. The coroner
was notified and the body removed to
the undertaking parlors of W. D. Todd.
A certificate of suicidal death probably
will be signed by the coroner.
Devolon attempted to kill himself
early In the morning in his home at
741 Monterey avenue, Pomona, by In
haling illuminating gas. He was found
lying across a gas stove, the jets of
which had been turned on. His
daughter summoned a physician and
after he had been revived he was ta
ken for a ride by his brother-in-law,
W. S. Dupee. The drive ended at the
office of Mr. ~ 'pee. He stepped inside
on an errand and Mr. Devolon then
ran to the track and threw himself
in front of the train. He is survived
by Mrs. Devolon, three sons and a
