Supply Committee Will Report
Against Reduction of Em-*
ployes' Pay Envelopes
Supt. Raitt Gets Increase to
$175; 'More Need to Raise
Than Lower.'—Betkouski
One unanimous sigh of relief will go
up in the city hall today when the
supply committee reports to the city
council that it cannot make any ma
terial reduction in the salaries of city
The supply committee has been work
ing on the salary question for six or
seven months and has concluded that
the salaries paid are justifiable In most
cases. The only cut of Importance that
will be recommended Is that the salary
of Paul FJammer, captain of detectives,
be reduced from $250 to $225 a month.
The committee considers this justified,
as no other captain In the police de
partment receives more than $200 a
month, and the chiefs salary is only
$260. The chiefs salary is fixed by
charter and cannot be changed by or
But this cut In Flammer's salary will
not produce any change in the city's
outlay for salaries, for C. B. Raltt,
superintendent of playgrounds, is in
creased from $125 to $175 a month. The
playground commission urged this In
crease, hs Mr. -Raitt had concluded to
resign unless he received more money.
The other salary ordinances will be
reported to the council practically as
the budget provided.
"It has been hard to keep from in
creasing salaries rather than reducing
them," said Counoilman Betkouski, "a
member of the committee, yesterday.
"Pressure has been brought to bear on
us from heads of departments to in
crease this man and that man, and we
are convinced that we have done as
well as we could to leave most of the
salaries as they are Instead of raising:

Council to Take Final Action on
Matter Today
The Tenth Street Improvement asso
ciation yesterday petitioned the city
council to deny the protest against the
construction of the Alameda street
Btorm drain. The petitioners say that
If this protest is granted it will estab
lish a precedent that all storm drains
hereafter will have to be constructed
by bond money or general taxation.
The protest has been before the
council for several weeks, and will
come up this morning for flnanl action.
As the protest Is based chiefly on the
fact that the protestants do not want
to pay the cost of the improvement,
and that the cost will not exceed $34
a fifty-foot lot for those most directly
benefited, and that the average cost
Ss much less than this, the council is
expected to deny the protest.
W. M. Humphreys, inspector of pub
lic works, will go before the council
and plead with that body to deny the

The question involved 1b whether a
girl who la 18 years old, was commit

A free lecture on proper breathing
was delivered to the police commission
last night by Dr. S. A. Richmond, who
told the commissioners that not one
man In the room was breathing prop
erly except himself.
Dr. Richmond, who has been In Los
Angeles a week, wanted a massage,
permit, but was told that under the
rules of the commission he could not
have a permit to massage both sexes.
He declared that all the massaging he
did was to rub the abdomen while, his
pupils were breathing. The commls-
Bion considered that it would not be
such a serious infraction of the rule
if that was all-the massaging to be
done, but as the doctor had boen In
the city only a week denied the appli
cation without prejudice.
Municipal Affairs
Big Delegation Protests Against
Proposed Factory and
Scores Victory
By filing the petition for the excep
tion of lots at Sixth and Beaudry from
the residence district the legislation
committee yesterday stopped the fight
on that matter that has been waged for
the last two weeks. There seems to be
no doubt that the council will adopt
the report, for each member had de
clared himself opposed to the proposed
Fully 100 people who live in the
neighborhood of Sixth and Beaudry or
own property there appeared before the
legislation committee yesterday to pro
test, and from their determined faces it
was evident they meant business. They
did not want the Davis Standard
Bread company to enlarge its baking
plant, which the proposed exception
from the residence district was de-
Bigned to effect.
The district Is purely residential,
built up with homes and apartment
nouses, and the bakery is the only
thing of the kind In the district. Some
of the women present declared the
bakery nuisance; that smoke and soot
from it have ruined their lace curtains
and other house furnishings and that
the noise of the machinery operating
at night and in the early morning,
■tfhen they want to sleep, is disagree

Goudge as their attornejr, and Joseph
Scott appeared as attorney for the ap
Mr. Scott was the target for a num
ber of emphatic remarks form the resi
dents who did not want him to gain his
point for his client, but he took it good
naturedly and pleaded his cause with
all his eloquence.
The objecting property owners hope
that as the bakery will not be able to
expand It will move to some more suit
able locality, where it can build as
large a bakery as It pleases.
Building Inspector Backus Re
turns from Northern Trip
J. J. Backus, buikling inspector, re
turned yesterday from a vacation
passed at San Francisco and in north
ern coast cities. With his return plans
will be hurried for the construction of
the new annex to the city hall to pro
vide quarters for the departments that
have outgrown accommodations in the
hall and moved into other buildings.
The building committee will report
to the council today In favor of con
structing a light well In the north side
of th,e proposed annex where It adjoins
the Copp building-. As this light well
will be advantageous to the Copp
building as well as to the city, C. H.
McFarland, lessee of the building-, has
agreed to pay rental If the light well
Is constructed. The amount of the
rental has not been determined, as
there Is a difference of opinion on this
question between Mr. McFarland and
the building committee.
Frank E. Wolfe and Seward Cole,
representing the transportation com
mittee of the Colegrove board of
trade, appeared before the public utili
ties commission yesterday morning to
find out what had become of the pe
tition tiled August 6 demanding that
the franchise of the Los Angeles-Pacific
through Colegrove be declared for
feited. T*he committee was assured
that as Mr. Lissner, the board's presi
dent, had returned from his vacation,
and it would be possible for the full
board of meet, some action would soon
be taken on the petition.
The petition specifies a number of
things in which the railway has been
derelict in conforming to the terms of
its franchise, and asks that the fran
chise be revoked.
This demand is connected with the
fight to secure 6-cent fares to Cole
grove, which is in the city limits, and
if the 5-cent fare is granted the effort
to have the franchise revoked will prob
ably cease. .
The fire commission held a special
meeting late yesterday afternoon and
voted to ask the council to amend the
ordinance providing for the stopping of
street cars on the near side of the
crossing. The amendment desired is
that where cars turn a corner they will
Btop after turning instead of before.
This amendment is intended for the
benefit of the new engine house at
Fifth street and Maple avenue, that
has come to be facetiously known as
the "marble palace," which will be
placed in commission October 1. Under
the present arrangement street cars
stop directly in front of the engine
house doors, which would be likely to
prove inconvenient in case an alarm
sounded for this engine rompany at
the same time a car stopped.
Mayor Alexander yesterday issued a
temporary permit for the opening of
Pant-iges theater on Broadway, near
Mercantile place. The permit was
necessary, as the theater could not
have opened its doors without it, al
though through no fault of Its own.
The building ordinance requires a six
inch water connection to a theater.
The theater had made application to
the water board for the permit to i on
nect the six-inch pipe, but action on the
permit had been delayed. It is expected
the permit will be granted and the con
nection made today. Meanwhile a two
inch pipe is doing service, so the thea
ter Is not without fire protection.
City Attorney Hhonk will present tho
taxicab ordinance to tho council today
for adoption. Tho ordinance will fix
the rates that may ha Charged l>y
taxloabs. The rates allowed arc: Fur
one or two persons, BO oenta for tho
first half mile or fraction, 10 cents for
each quarter milo thereafter, and 10
