News of the Courts OUSTED BANK OFFICIALS BRING ANOTHER ACTION Former Directors All Night and Day^ Institution Claim It Was Illegally Closed ■ Another action was filed yesterday In the superior court by the faction of the All Night and Day bank which was ousted recently from control of the bank and which consists of New ton J. Skinner, W. J. Conner, H. B. Stafford. C. E. Shank, W. O. Morton, J. L. Conner and C. P. Elerick. It is directed against the new board of directors of the bank, L. C. Brand. John T. Cooper, Roy I. Cline, B. V. Henry W. Meyer, J. P. Moore aiH \V It. Letton, and differs little from the suit that was filed against them Saturday, except that in the pres ent action Alden Anderson, state superintendent of banks; Henry E. Bherer, deputy superintendent, and Robert Wankowski, special deputy su perintendent, also are made defend ants. The plaintiffs recite that their cap ital stock is $250,000, their deposits $900,000 and their depositors several thousand. They aver that the super intendent of banks is required by a California law to give the directors of a bank a hearing before closing such an institution, and declare they were denied such legal privilege October 14. when Anderson ordered tha doors of the bank in question closed for the al leged protection of the depositors. It is averred that Anderson for Rev oral months has been in close toueli with the condition of the bank and liad absolutely no reason to conclude that the institution was unsafe. They also say that they should have been piven time to appeal to the courts for a ruling in the matter before the l>ank was closed, alleging that such procedure is acccording to law. It Is also asserted that the superin tendent of banks refuses to refund to the plaintiffs their moneys, and also refuses to give receipts for them, al though the new board of directors continues to occupy the old building. It is asked that the defendants be enjoined from further proceedings in the business of the All Night and Day bank and that they >rdered to sur render the control of the institution to the former directors.

Municipal Affairs DEMANDS FIRE ESCAPES FOR MUNICIPAL BUILDING Inspector Backus Asks $2000 Appropriation and Board Obeys Mandate Jt is not often that a subordinate has a right to tell his employer "where to head in." but Building Inspector Backus did this to the board of public works yesterday and sent the board to the council for $2000 to carry out his mandate. Inder the building ordinance the city hall should have four fire escapes, one standpipe inside and one outside. But there is nothing of the kind on the city building. Every day that there is a delay in putting these fire escapes on the building constitutes a separate of fense, Which Is punishable by line and imprisonment. BaokUS is the one who enforces the building ordinance. He is also subor dinate) to the board of public works, as the building bureau is a branch of the department of public works, over which the board presides. The board is also custodian of the city hall and responsible for its equipment. Backus estimates that it will cost $2000 to equip the City hall according to the terms of the building ordinance for which the council is responsible, anil the council is asked to furnish this amount of money. In connection with fire escapes a pe tition has been presented for the con sideration of the council by owners of business buildings, in which they ask that the recent amendment to the tire escape provision made in the build- Ing ordinance be made to apply to new buildings only. Tliey complain that every two years the council changes the specifications for fire escapes, and they then have to tear down the ones they have put up and orect some more to comply with the new specifications. COLEGROVE AGAIN MAKES RAILWAY SERVICE PLEA The Colegrove board of trade again la pleading- with the city council to take some action to improve the ser vice and the track of the Colegrove line of the Los Angeles-Pacific. The petitioners aver that an investigation will disclose either "rank Incompe tence on the part of the company or indifference to the rights of those so unfortunate as to be compelled to patronize this line." A similar petition was presented by the Colegrove board of trade to the council several months ago, and the board asked that the franchise be re voked because of failure of the rail road to comply With its terms. The matter was referred by the council to the board of public utilities. A petition that the tracks be lowered on Santa Monica boulevard was grant ed by the board of public works and the company was ordered to make its tracks level with the street. BOYLE HEIGHTS CITIZENS ASK BAN ON BRICKYARDS Boyle Heights citizens want the council to pass an ordinance prohib iting- the operation of brick yards In their part of the city. A large num ber of them appeared before the legis lation committee yesterday to urge ac tion on a petition pending before the council that has been referred to that committee. While no action was taken on the petition, Councilman Andrews, chair man of the committee, is strongly in sympathy with the petitioners. He lives in Victoria Park, where, until recently, brick yards nourished, much to his discomfort and detriment to the property in that suburb. Through his efforts the council passed an ordinance that curbed the brick yards. MAYOR ASKS IMPROVEMENT OF FIRE ALARM SYSTEM Mayor Alexander will send a mes sage to the council today naming a committee he haa appointed to inves tigate the city's fire alarm and police signal system and suggest needed changes. The committee Is composed of Prof. C. L. Corey, dean of the elec trical department of the U, t>. C.; T. B. Comstock, chief engineer of the board of public utilities, and E. F. Seattergood, chief electrical engineer of the aqueduct department. The mayor will ask the council to appropriate $1000 to be spent by the committee in making its investigation. Plans for the improvement of the sys tem, suggested by Fire Commissioners C. o. Hawley and F. V. Owens, will be considered. CITY BREWERY AGENT TO DEFEND SALOON LICENSE J. n. Hagen, wlm holds the license for the Reception Baloon, In the Tem ple block, haa i" en i Ited to app iar be icjn and show why his permit should not be revoked because he does noi actually own and control the saloon. Commissioner Top ham told the police board last night that Hagen la a traveling salesman for the Los Angeles Brewing company, and that he holds the permit for the brewery. The lie :eptlon saloon is a tenant of the <-ity, us the city owns the Temple block. The saloon has a long lease, and if the commission sees tit to re voke the permit the oily is not likely to rent the premises again tor Baloon purpo CITY DEVISES ELEVATED CROSSINGS FOR RAILWAYS The second meptlng of the railroad engineers with the board of public utilities was held yeßterday afternoon. These conferences are for the purpose of devising means to separate the grades at the rlvor where the rail roads cross. The railroad engineers were not prepared to submit any plan, but the city engineer's department ha<i devised a system of elevated crOßß \nother session will be held >>'<>- vember I. and it is not expected that a conclusion will be reached at that time, as tile subject Is one that re qulres much consideration. ACCUSED OF DRUNKENNESS Patrolman David McDonald has been cited to appear before the police com mission November 7 and show cause why he should not be dismissed from the service. He Is accused by < hlci Galloway of being intoxicated while on duty. ■ OBJECT TO IMPROVEMENT OF AGRICULTURAL PARK Commission May Enjoin City from Payment of $10,000 Injunction proceedings may be | brought by the park commission to: stop the city paying $10,000 for the lm- \ provement of Agricultural park. The: park commission wants to test the va- i lidlty of the contract between the city I and the Sixth District Agricultural as soclatlon, by which the city is to pay $100,000 in installments of $10,000 a year for the improvement of the park. The park commission has never taken kindly to the Agricultural park proposition, because, while the city has a nominal lease to the land, it has no real right to dictate what shall be done with the money to be spent in the park, not even that which it ap propriates itself. The agricultural as sociation that controls the park for the state has agreed to let the city officials have some say in the matter, but purely as a courtesy. The park commission Will bold a meeting next Saturday afternoon to ■ discuss what is best to be done in the case. COUNCIL WILL DISCUSS ELEVATOR OPERATOR LAW j — That the mayor's veto of the unli- j censed engineers and operators ordl- j .nance be sustained will be recommend- i ed to the council today by the legis- i latlon committee. The ordinance was Introduced by Councilman Gregory. : who is also a member of the legislation committee, but Mr. Gregory believes the necessity for the ordinance has passed. The ordinance gave employers of sta tionary engineer* and elevator oper ators the right to employ competent | men who did not hold licenses in case , of public necessity, but tile mayor con sidered it too broad, as it left the em ployers, ;he scile judge of the compe tency of the men. POSTPONE INVESTIGATION OF ACCUSED DETECTIVES Charges against F. .T. Talamantes and T. F. Rioo, detectives in the po lice department, were continued one week when < ikon up by the police commission last night The commis sion was not ready to present its case, although there were a number o£ wit nesses prepared to testify. The detectives are accused of having knowledge of the whereabouts of a| Mexican girl who was kidnaped and at- j tempting to extort money from her! parents to have her returned. Both! are suspended from duty pending their trials. GERMAN SOCIETIES ASK LIQUOR LAW AMENDMENT Several German societies have peti tioned the council to amend the liquor ordinance to fit their peculiar needs. They say that they hold social events two or three times a year and like to sell beer to their members, but the only way they can do so legally is to take out a club license and pay $J5 a month as a license fee. They declare this is a hardship and ■want some method devisea so that thny can take out special permits good for a stated period of a day or two. CITY CURBS GRANTING OF WHOLESALE LIQUOR RIGHTS The police commission last night shut down on granting any more wholesale liquor licenses, as there is but one left under the limit Imposed by the new liquor ordinance. The last retail liquor permit was granted several weeks ago, and the commission has practically stopped ' granting restaurant licenses. There Is 1 little business to be transacted in the ' liquor line until some of those holding licenses give them up, which seldom happens.

V., Oct. 24.—The study of scientific farming at close range kept Theodore Roosevelt busy most of the time today. He rode ninety-three miles in an automobile to Inspect abandoned farms of this sec tion of the state, beginning at Ithaca and ending at Binghamton, and he de cided that a farmer who goes about It in the right way can make a good liv ing from land now going to waste. Colonel Roosevelt also made three speeches for tho Republican state ticket. The new point he emphasized in these speeches was Ms declaration that John A. Dlx. the Democratic candidate for governor, had been a director of the so-called wall paper trust for eighteen months in spite oC Mr. Dlxs statement of last Saturday to the contrary. When Colonel Roosevelt arrived at Ithaoa, early in the day, Representa tive John W. Dwight. Prof. L,. H. Bailey of Cornell university and George E. Monroe, an expert from tho agricultural department, took him to breakfast. Colonel Roosevelt appeared on tho balcony of the hotel and begun his speech by referring to court records t.> show that while Mr. Dix became a director of the Standard Wfill Paper company in June, 15)07, the final decision declaring the wall paper combine Il legal was not rendered by the supremo court until February, 1909. S SAYS DIX NOT FRANK Mr. Dix, he said, either did not knOT* what his company was doing, or else he iviis not frank In his statements about tho matter. Then tho day's ride was started. The first stop was at the farm of James Shakier*! fourteen miles from Ithaca. Mr. Monroe showed the Colonel land which a few years ago had been re- Siinleil as virtually useless, and which, he said, now produced 300 bushels of: potatoes to the acre. Colonel Roosevelt said he believed the upbuilding of agriculture in the region had begun. The Colonel referred In his speech here today to a circular which he said tho Democrats had aont out. He had one of the circulars in his hand. "The Democratic party in this cam paign standa for tranquillity and peace, and is opposed to the wild doctrines of Roosevelt," he read from the pa per. "Well, tho big Roosevelt doctrine Is 'thou shnlt not steal,' " he said. "To defeat the Roosevelt policies will re quire for legitimate uses a large out lay of money," he continued, again reading from the circular. "Tliis appeal," he said, "Is signed by Charles F. Murphy, and others. They can call them the Roosevelt policies if they will," continued the colonel, "they are the policies of the average farstghted man. It will require a larg er outlay of money than ull the money Tammany Hall oan collect from Wall itreet."
