The liquor llconse'eommfttee had
stood divide In the . morning on the
proposition,. Zimmerman and Slgler be
ing willing to vote for the "additional

a favor of the side entrance tax. How
ever, neither were willing to' entertain
the, "all night"' proposition, and after
Several hours' argument it, was agreed
that the four members were to turn in
the ""additional bar" clause with unani
mous approval, This , was understood
to be in the nature of a compromise, r
. i - When the measure came, before the
council in the afternoon Councilman
Bentley had lntroduoed another ordin
andi and asked for consideration of both
measures at the, same time. - This was
declared: irregular, and. then , he asked
that they compromise amendment be rer

Councilman Albee couldn'fr, understand
why he should take this course, : but
Bentley insisted that he thought it was
ino 1'iuy proper way 10 get xne con

- "1 . did not - expect any votes on this
proposition," explained Mr. JBentiey in
introducing his side-entranoe ordinance,
"but I desire the council to go on record.
I knew that it would be killed when I
brought it up, but here la the time and
place for you men to declare your
selves." . t'
The feature of this squabble involves
two propositions viz: Shall the licenses
bo changed or shall they remain un
disturbed? This question is subdivided
into the propositions of charging for
extra bars: chareinar whnlemiler with a
retail bar two licenses; 'Charging a li
cense for Bide entrances, and charging
for tho privilege of operating the liquid
dispensaries all night. There Is where
the spilt occurs. s
'"One faction is in favor of assessing
an extra license for each extra bar and
the two lioenses for wholesale and re

in favor of the whole proposition clear
down the line.
There is no question, -ft is said, that
the first will carry, possibly unani

LEAGUE GilAMPS TO
PLAY" WINTER BALL
After listening to the' honeyed accents
and - persuasive .eloquence o a young
oaseDau manager : in , Santa Barbara.
says the Bulletin,', and hearing of the
golden harvest of ducata that awaits the
champions of 1903 in . the " Channel city,
Capt. Frank Dillon has decided to keep
the Loo-Loos together this winter for the
purpose of playing a schedule series ot
games in that burg against a picked pro-
;;! In this action he has' the' support of
tne ptayers tnemseives, who see a chance
to pick up some money during the dull
season, and Manager Morley has agreed
to let the men play in .their uniforms
6t last season,' .which will give tse Up
coast fans a rare chance to see a pen
nant winner In action, Just as it looked
when it filed out on the field during the
playing season. -
Thus fat1 the Santa Barbarans have
shown 'willingness to patronize good
baseball very liberally, considering' the
else of the town. There Is a good ball
park in the city and the accommoda
tions for the conduct of the game are as
good as could be desired.
The Pitching Staff. -' '
For pitchers Santa Barbara will have
McKay and Cooper of the Oakland team:
Lewis will catch. Fred Clark bt the Chl-
Icago Nationals will play first base, Bow-
legged BUI Gannon second. Buss Hall
short, and Jack Hardy third, whUa In the
outfield will be that " capable trio. "Mar-
tinke, Dalrymple and McLaughlin. The
entire list have played a great deal of
professional, ball, i - , .
The Loo-Loos will take their battle ar
ray ot 1903 with them, excepting Toman.
Teeley Raymond. .Chlmmia's temporary
successor, is not available, and Fred
Kaymer, ever an earnest, faithful ball
player, has volunteered to fill Toman's
shoes which he can readily do, as he is
a star both in the field and at the bat
Newton and Gray will be the pitchers;
DUlon first, -Wheeler second, Jtaymer
short and Jud Bmf th third will make up
the infield, while the "reliable suburban
ites, Ross, Hoy and "Cravath" will hold
forth in the neitBermoet .precincts.
Santa Barbara dropped 'out of the mid
winter league on account of the long rail
road haul, and prospects being hardly
promising, enough, to warrant , entering
upon the schedule. Only one game every
week could be expected.
