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
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.

McClaughrey, who is the attorney
for and the husband of Anita Bald-
Win McClaughrey, the turfman's
daughter, declared that the heirs are
checking up the amounts realized
from previous sales of the property,
and they believe that enough money
has been acquired in that way to
satisfy all claims against the estate.
Judge Rives, although of the opin
ion that the will gives H. A. Unruh,
executor, power to sell the entire
estate if he wishes, continued the
hearing for a week, together with a

Judge Conrey Passes on Suit of
City Involving Property
on Boulevard
The report of the referees in the case
of the city of Los against
Napoleon Zilincar and other property
holders along Compton avenue be
tween Vernon and Slauson avenues,
which the municipality by condem
nation proceedings seeks to widen
from 80 to 100 feet as a part
of the boulevard from the city to the
harbor, was approved in nearly its en
tirety yesterday by Judge Conrey of
the superior court.
The property which will be con
demned is valued at about $100,000, and
the action of the city Is approved by
the residents along it. John R. Tay
lor, James P. Thompson and D. F. An
derson served as referees. Judge Con
rey approved their report with the ex
ception that he gave $300 to E. W.
Hopperstead, part of whose house
must be removed, and $100 to Kather-
Ine Hambrecht, whose residence must
be moved back from the proposed new
i street line several feet. That the ref
! erees did not allow such needful sums
was an oversight and the action of tho
Judge in rectifying their mistake is
approved by the city's legal depart
Aside from those two items, the re
port of the referees received judicial
! approval.

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
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
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.
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 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
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 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.

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.

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.

shut down on granting any more

T. R. Studies Scientific Farming
at Close Range During
93-Mile Trip
(Associated rrrsjO
13INGHAMTON, N. 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
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
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
"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
