SUMMARY OF THE DAY. compiled yesterday by the Oily ii.miiii how a lower death i i for the month of September than t'i'r man j' preceding months. The project for opt-nina; Seventeenth ft refit to public traffic was again revived, ypsterday, by tho filing of a petition for this The Water Commission with tlm City Ck-rk its request that ti i City Council approve nev Sihf(Jul9 for rates on vater meters. The Civil Service Commission has provided for examination of candidate', for many positions In the city's Ice, to held October 13. Citizens of Compton have awakened to the fact that they ore residtmts of a city of the sixth class, and have been for a number of years, thougl: unaware of it.

A decision of the SB-preme Court determines this point. Vva TMnursn Is called upon to oi ras Inspt-ctor Is IIuO per monin. Final ordinances have been passed by the City Council for the sewering of Avenue 37, Avenue 63, Avenue 65, the opening of Darwin avenue, between Mln nn.1 I In eil an A Vi A --10S-- on liasy rJw ivecorus Payments 35 Cents commissioners. The petition was turned down. Then JS.

E. Elliott, representing the petitioners, filed a petition in the Supreme Court asking that a writ of mandato issue against the Governor directing him to appoint the commission asked for. The Supreme Court granted the writ and incidentally hold that a municipality cannot be disincorporated by exclusion of territory when such exclusion leaves an insufficient number of citizens to form a city government. Both of the old-time elections held' for slicing purposes are held to be void, and consequently the city of Compton stands as a municipality of the sixth class, and has about 600 acres of ground to play with. The l'oint where the electrlo car stops is about the center of the municipality, and from now on the resurrected city will move fast to be worthy of its age as an Incorporated one.

A DOUBLE STORY. WILLIAM M'ATJLLEY GOES HOME. In the early morning hours yesterday Williams McAulley was arrested on the complaint of hla wife that he had snapped his pistol at her, and that her life was in danger. The man was taken to the County Jail, but as his wife failed to lodge any formal complaint against her ryouse he was allowed to go free later the daThe MeAulleys live at the corner of Barrel and Dayton streets, Just wost of the Temple-street line, and the husband for a while was doing clerical service with the Fifth Street Department Store.

The Mayor promptly sent these ordinances back with a short veto mes-safe, and they were then passed over his veto, tne Ctty Attorney ruling that six votes were sufficient. The ordinances providing for an increase power for the Board of Public Works, inorder to handle the Owens River project, was passed. The ordinance providing or the creation of new wards was not taken ujj until 12:15 o'clock this morning, and was discussed for a long period before it waa passed.

It received the Mayor signature and will appear in the official paper this morning. The amendment dealing with the creation of new city wards adds to the description of the present nine wards the following: "And the Council herein provided shall havo power by ordinance to establish and change the boundaries of said wards whenever it may deem tho same to be necessary; but until changed by the Council the said wards shall remain as above described and established; and any of said wards may be divided and new wards created therefrom in the following manner, and the number of wards shall not be greater than fifteen. "Whenever the population of any of the said wards is so increased as to render, in the opinion of said Council, a division of such wards into two or more wards necessary, such division may be done by ordinance, passed by two-thirds vote of the whole Council; provided, however, that no such ordinance shall go into effect before thirty days from the time of its final passage and its approval by the Mayor; and such ordinance shall be subject to the provisions of Section 198b of this charter. "That whenever a new ward is created a Councilman for sucfh additional word thus created shall be elected at a special election to be ordered by the Council within three months from the time said ward Is created, unless a general city election rhall occur within three months from said time. "All wards which may be hereafter created shall be composed of adjacent and compact territory, and whenever a ward is divided Into two or more wards, as hereinbefore provided, such wards shall contain as nearly an equal number of inhabitants as may be practicable, i "Whenever any new ward is created all the wards of the city, including such new ward, shall be numbered by the City Council consecutively from one to the highest number, thus created, and in the numbering thereof said City Council shall have power to change the number of any existing ward, if it shall deem the same tobe expedient.

"If the number of members of the City Council is increased by tho creation of new wards at any time as herein provided, two-thirds of the whole number of members- as thus Increased, whatever the same may be. shall constitute a quorum foy the transaction of A GAME of ojieckmate was that played by Mayor MoAleer with the City Council yesterday in regard to the proposed amendments to the city's charter. As a result the whole project had a narrow escape from death. McAleer was opposed to the proposition to extend the Jlfa of strect-ruil-vvay franchises, and early yesterday morning declared that he would never sign the ordinance which combined this proposed amendment with the others. The Mayor was willing to place his signature on the sections providing for Increasing the powers of the Board of Public Works, so that it might more satisfactorily handle the business for the Owens River project; and during tho forenoon he held a consultation with City Attorney Matthews ana Councilmen Blanehard and Kern, and an agreement was reached whereby the Council was to split the ordinance, placing the Owens River prov'sions in one and the franchise provisions in the other.

The Mayor intimated that he would then sign the first, but that he would veto the one providing for the longer life of franchises. It was the understanding among the Councilmen that the last-named ordinance would be passed over the Mayor's veto, and both ordinances would be rushed to press so that they could appear this morning. A special session was called for 8 o'clock. But, In the make-up of the amendment propositions the one in which Councilman Ford of the First Ward was particularly interested that providing for the creation of new city wards was left out. Ford insisted that this must be included In the list If the ordinances were to have his support This caused a scurrying about, and finally City Attorney Mathews prepared the new provisions.

Then another difficulty arose. It requires seven votes in some cases to pass an ordinance over the veto of the Mayor, and after the vote of the day before. Councilman Smith had started away on his vacation, thinking the troubles over the proposed charter amendments were all settled. Councilman Howton was avowedly opposed to the passage of the franchise-extension ordinance, and Councilman Summerland had been away for several weeks on leave of absence. The time slipped by until a second call was issued for a special session at 10 o'clock.

Meanwhile telephone, messenger boys and police were set to work to try and find Summerland, In order to get seven votes. Finally a third call was Issued, for 11:30 o'clock, and st 11 came the word that the much-wanted Councilman had been located and was bound for the City Hall. It was a false alarm, and Summerland did not appear. At 11:45 o'clock a fourth call for a special session was drawn up, and the Council got down to business. The Mayor was requested to return unsigned the ordinance passed the day before, and the Council then reconsidered its action, and placed the amendments In four ordinances.

Sylvia Incorporation Is in the air and every little town wants lo assume the dignity of municipal honors. But It Is not often that a Is only Incorporated and entitled such dignities as belong to a city of the sixth class without knowing It, and yet that Is Just the position that Compton has been in. As far back as May 4. 18S8, Compton Incorporated as a city of the sixth class, but two years was long enough to work disenchantment. The "boom" ceased to boom and such residents as there were In and about Compton were Howard was divorced from Sanborn Howard, or.

the ground of desertion. The Darties wure married in this city In August, ISfX), and on July 1 of last the inference was conveyed that for love of her, Father Doyle faced the censure of his church, and sought in her arms a compensation. But within two months he was disillusioned and so was she. Plain George D. Doyle discovered that his education for the priesthood had not equipped him with such mental capital as would carry him ahead in the business world.

He took to drink. Then his secret knowledge of naughty words found outward expression, and he cursed like a trooper. Then this ex-prlest took to beating his wife, and so violently that he laid her up In bed. On one occasion he lifted her up and threw her out of the window. Not being able to earn any money the wife had to be the bread winner, and In order to have a broader field the Doyles came to this city.

They lived at No. 834 South Hope street until Doyle had the idea that he would go to Searchlight and take up mining. But he could not make mining a success as he kept on drinking to excess. One night he hit his wife on the spine with one of his miner's boots and she was then confined to her bed and had to be tended by the neighbors. After that experience she returned to Los Angeles and began the suit for divorce, which was granted by Judge James.

Harry Magee, Charles Smith and Edward Epperly appeared before Justice Austin yesterday afternoon to answer to a 'charge of burglary. The preliminary examination of the three boy burglars, none of whom Is of age, attracted a crowd) and was the chief feature of interest in the police courts yesterday. Smith and Magee are Jointly charged with burglary, and were bound over to the Superior Court Bail Is fixed at $2000 each.

Epperly's case was continued until Friday of next week. During the proceedings yesterday, Smith, whose correct name is said to be Charles Weinert, seemed to take the whole matter as a joke. He laughed and chatter with his companions, and appearbd to regard himself as a hero. He grinned saucily at the Justice, and stared around the courtroom, evidently enjoying the notoriety he has jumped into. When asked if he had any testimony to offer in his own behalf, he muttered something inaudible to any one except the court, and merely grunted when his case was referred to the higher court.

Smith, or Weinert, is known to-the police, and they say. he is one of the worst youthful criminals In the city. He appears to be the leader of the three lads, and yesterday engaged In repeated whispered conversations with the other two, and it was necessary to remove him to another part of tho courtroom during the trial. Relatives of young Epperly were In court In an endeavor to secure his release on ball. An endeavor to reduce the amount to $1500 failed.

Epperly Is said to have been drawr. Into the difficulty by the other lads. He is aged 15 years. Jump His Bail. C.

PICO DIVORCE.

Anna C. Pico was granted a divorce from Wesley Pico, on the ground of failure to provide. The parties were married in this city in November, 1903. and it was carried almost unanimously that half of the municipal territory be dropped off, and It was so ordered. With this dropping of half the territory went nearly three-fourths of the population.

It was a trying position to till, for the burden of having nothing to do and not receiving any pay for doing It bore heavily upon ths. officeholder's mind.

It didn't seem in the eternal fitness of things that a city official should work for no pay. Since those old days things have changed and again Compton got the incorporation fever. A year ago the citizens desired to Incorporate, but were advised that the old Incorporation proceedings had com' Heated the situation.
