COMPLICATIONS ARISE
OVER ALAMEDA DRAIN
Improvement May Be Abandoned
in Spite of the Mayor's
Opposition
Interesting complications have arisen |
that may cause the Alameda street
Btorm drain to be abandoned in spite
of the mayor's veto of the abandoning
ordinance. Deputy City Attorney
Robertson told the city council yester
day that ho did not believe an or
dinance was necessary to abandon pro
ceedings, hut that it could be done by
the council sustaining a protest. The
council has already sustained the pro
test, and then, to clear the record,
adopted an ordinance declaring pro
i lings abandonedi
This ordinance was vetoed by the
mayor, because he considered the
Btorm drain necessary. President Lusk
held that it would require seven votes
t.> pass the ordinance over the veto.
and that many could not he mustered,
foi Gregory, O'Brien and Stewart
Favored the storm drain and sustain
ing the veto.
The charter requires that wlion the ,
>!i ordinance the council;
must rei onslder Its n tion In I o
it in order to have it before it for |
action. Andrews objected Btrongly to
a reconsideration, although Deputy
Robertson declared it was mandatory
on the council to reconsider. President
Lusk pointed out to Mr. Andrews that
every councilman had sworn to sus
tain 'the charter when he tools the oath
of office, and it would bo a violation of
this oath to go contrary to the charter.
Andrews and Betkouskl both voted
"no" on tin- question to reconsider,
but the others voted favorably, and
the matter was sent to the city at
torney for a formal opinion on the
lon if the ordinance was ni
sary.
MAY REVIVE AGITATION
TO ESTABLISH TWO PARKS
Agitation for the. park in the west
ern part of the city, between Pic. and
Sixteenth, Normandie and Berendo,
and the. one proposed at Thirty
ami Hooper Is to be revived if tin
any Inclination on the part of the pro
moters to do so.
The city engineer yesterday dug
these matters out of his flies and asked
the council What he should do about
them. The parka were subjects of dis
cussion before the previous council,
but when the present council adopted
the rule that a park petition must
bear the signatures of 25 per cent of
assessment district, proceedings
stopp .
The matter was referred to the pub
lic welfare committee, and win be con-
Bidered by that body Thursday after-

the city, amounting- to about JIOOO, if
the proceedings are abandoned. This
money will be put in escrow to await
rinal judgment by the courts.
CITY WAY APPROPRIATE
PROPERTY NEAR ARCADE
City officials are taking the position
that Fifth street from Central, ave
nue to the Arcade station entrance be
longs to the city, and yesterday the
engineer's department presented an
ordinance, which was adopted by the
council, fixing the grade of this por
tion of the street.
The council recently passed an or
dinance declaring the street a public
thoroughfare, and no exception was
taken to the action by the Southern
Pacific.
The "river bed franchise" council
gave this portion of the street to the
Southern Pacific. The railroad prom
ised to build .a. handsome new station,
umiik the street as a portion of the
grounds. It had plans drawn showing
how it would look when completed.
When, after five years, the railroad
evinced no intention of building the
depot, the council took back the piece
of street.
LOS ANGELES TO SUPPLY
INDEPENDENCE WITH LIGHT
The board of public works yesterday
asked the city council for authority to
furnish electric light and power to In
depi ndence, the county seat of Inyo
county. This is near the line of the
aqueduct and a transmission line of
I the City runs past Citrus road camp.
People of Independence who want
! the "juice" have raised a fund of $500
and deposited the eh >ck with city of
ficials as an evidence of" good faith
and to pay the cost of the distributing
system In the city. There are several
administration buildings of the aque
duct department at Independence, and
the board wants to light them with
i electricity. A schedule of rates has
been arrangi d that will give the city
i a profit for the electricity.
The council referred the matter to
the city attorney to determine the
; city's right to Bell the power.
HEALTH BOARD SAVES $30
MONTH BY READJUSTMENT
By rearranging its meat inspectors
the health department will save $30 a
month in salaries and may have a more
efficient organization. The necessary
ordinance to provide (or the new ar
rangement was passed by the council
yesterday.
It provides for one meat inspectoi j
at a salary of $140 a month and five
Inspectors of animal slaughter at $110
a month. The meat Inspector is to have
supervision over the slaughter inspec
tors.
The change is that there were two
■ meat Inspectors at $140 a month and
j four Inspectors of animal slaughter.
The resignation of Meat Inspector Fred
j S. Hugos last week, leaving but one
meat inspector, made it possible to
make the change.
AGREEMENT REACHED ON
AGRICULTURAL PARK STRIP
Warring factions in the south part of
the city, split over the question of
condemning the strip on the south side
of Agricultural park, have reached an
agreement and yesterday made «uch a
report to the city council. All fac
ti. ir u-5 are willing the s.trip should be
condemned but want the assessment
district i" extend north to Washington
strei t, Instead of in Jefferson only.
Hearing on tlte matter will be held
by the open council at 11 o'clock next
Tuesday morning and in the meantime
it will be considered by the public wel
fare committee.

COUNCIL WILL NOT PAY
FOR SCHOOL STREET WORK
Board Must Pay Assessment or
Work Remain Undone
If the board of education will not
pay the assessments for improving
streets In front of school buildings, the
streets will not be improved. Such is
the conclusion the city council has
reached. It was announced by Coun
cilman Wash/burn of the finance com
mlttee yesterday.
There has be< n long contention be
tween the council and the hoard of
education over the payment <>r street
assessments in front of school prop
erty. The board of education l:;is flat
ly refused to pay these assessments
and the city attorney has held thai
the school department cannot legally
bo compelled to do so.
The l<>'.mtii has always produced the
money from the genera] I (und,
but it has come to the conclusion that
tho board has more money to spend
than it b;iH, and will do go no more.
Two proceedings for street Improve
ments in which school property is In
volved are being held up now but if
they arc carried through it '.'-ill be on
a basis of the education department
paying its assessment or the street in
front of tho schools will not be im
proved. The clerk was Instructed to
ask tho board of education what it
intends to do about these particular
streets and on the board's reply will
depend the action of tin- council.
PLANS ARE TO BE DRAWN
FOR NEW ENGINE HOUSE
Plans for the engine house to )>o con
structed at Washington and Arling
ton streets are to be drawn In the
office of the building Inspector. If a
draughtsman is needed to prepare the
plans the board of public works is au
thorized to employ one.
It has been the policy of the council
in the past to employ an architect to
draw engine house plans. The archi
tect is paid 3M per cent of the coal of
the engine house.'This hai resulte-l,
it is saiS, in foisting on the clt;
extravagant buildings as tha "marble
palace" at Fifth and Maple streets,

have it repeat
CLAIM ENGINEER'S OFFICE
RETARDS IMPROVEMENT
City Council Is Urged to Increase
Force of Draughtsmen
"What causes the delay in street im
provement proceedings in the engi
neer's department?" asked a petition
of the Los Angeles realty board yes
terday. The petition was presented to
the council and asserted that delay in
tho engineer's department was greatly
retarding tUe improvement of the city.
Herbert Burdett, secretary of tho 1
, told the council that the cause
di the delay appeared to be lack of
sufficient men in the engineer's depart
ment and urged the council to take the
mutter up through one of its commit-
He said that six draughtsmen at
month each were needed In ad
dition to the staff now employed and
that more help could be used by the
engineer in oilier branches. He point
ed out that the money paid for engi
neering work in street improvements
did not come out of tho city's pocket,
but from the assessments levied on |
property owners to pay the cost of tho
Improvement, and that more men
could easily be employed without ad
ditional expense to the city.
The matter was referred to the sup
ply committee.

wanted It to remain just aa it is.

HUNGER CAUSES OUTBREAK
OF INSURGENCY IN COUNCIL
Andrews Takes Revenge for Loss
of Luncheon by Having Long
Ordinance Read
Hunger almost caused a civil war
among the councilmen at noon yester
day. When the clock indicated that it
was noon Councilman Andrews, who
lias a mighty good appetite, but doesn't
look it, wanted to know how much mora
the clerk had before him. Clerk Car
roll responded that lie could get through
in twenty minutes if Andrews didn't
talk too much.
But Andrews knows his own failing
and wanted to adjourn. He declared
he was willing to devote the whole day
to the council business, but Wanted
something inside him to sustain him
while be did. But I.c could get no sec
ond to his motion to adjourn and Pres.
ident Lusk ordered the cleric to proceed.
Andrews was plainly disgusted. He
wanted revenge on the other members
of tl-e council wh > would not support
his m.ftion to adjourn and soon he gut
it. One of the sections of the city at
torney's report, which ordinarily would
have taken but a few seconds, present
ed an ordinance granting a pipe line
franchise to the Hamburger Realty
and Trust company for a steam heat
ing plant.
The franchise wa^ an old subject. It
had been threshed out for months by
several committees and the ordinance
was merely a perfunctory matter, the
terms of which were known to every
member of tiie council.
Andrews had seen the ordinance and
he knew that it was longer than the
moral law. "Whenever a member of
the council demand.? that an ordinance
b« read, it must be read. Mr. Andrews
made the demand and Clerk Carroll
started. Carroll droned out yard after
yard of legal verbiage, the while the
cither members gr-J\v restless and An
drews chuckled In his sleeve.
After about ten minutes" reading
Washburn jumped to his feet and sec
onded Andrews' motion to adjourn.
The motion'was pill and lost and the
reading was resumed. It was an hour
after noon before t!'e council could get
to its lunch, and the next time An
drews wants to adjourn tha other mem
bers will see that there is no long or
dinance to read before it says "no.
