The ordinance, pending- in commit tee for weeks, has met with objections on the part of owners of prop erty on the thoroughfare who fear the closing of the street will deny them access to their buildings and will unfavorably affect the appraisal value of their holdings in case the railroad company institutes condemnation pro eeedings to acquire the property.

Whiter stated it ha.? come to his knowledge the property owners objecting to the vacating of Liberty avenue "feel" the Pennsylvania Railroad Company is resorting to "trickery" because the legislation for the widening of Spring way has not been introduced. . Mr. Whiter points out, in his let ter, that ordinances for the vacation and improvement of all streets neces sary in the plan for the terminal extension were presented simultaneously to Council but had to be rewritten upon advice of the Department of Public Works. He quoted a communication from Fred W. Lyon, chief engineer of the city, which stated that enough of the new ordinances had been presented to cover all the work that could be done this year. Witling to Wait. He stated. he and counsel for the railroad cimpany were willing to have Council postpone action on the Liberty avenue measure until the ordinance for Spring way was introduced. He requested, prompt action on the latte- measure so that it might become a law in August or early in September. i On motion of Robert Garland the director of the Department of Public Works was asked to present the Spring way ordinance as soon as possible. SANTA BARBARA QUAKE, RIPS PACIFIC ISLANDS HURLING CLIFFS IN SEA .ncient Burial Places Revealed as Catalina Group , is Hit. Br Associstco Pmbss to Gazittb Times. ' AVALOX, SANTA CATALINA ISEANO, CAL., July 7. While last Monday's earthquake was toppling hotels and office buildings of Santa Barbara into the street it was ripping great fissures in the Santa Cruz and San Miguel islands just off the coast from the mission city, hurling sections of their rocky coast lines into the sea and revealing old Indian burial places. A report of the tremblor's effect on the practically uninhabited , island was brought here yesterday by Capt. Arthur Sanger of the schooner Dreamer, on the vessel's return from anchorage off Santa Cruz Island with a party of archaeologists from the Los Angeles Museum of History, Science and Art. Sanger said the Dreamer was lying off Santa Cruz Island when the shocks began early Monday morning and that waves churned. up by the quake tossed the vessel about like a piece of kindling, i "Cliffp toppJed into the sea before us," he said, "and we gazed awestruck at what seemed to be the end of the world. From San Miguel Island to the west of us, arose great clouds of dust, indicating that there, too, the cliffs were crashing. "After the shocks had subsided we went ashore and found that fissures opened by the quake had uncovered burial places, the existence of which we had not suspected while exploring other Indian remains on the island. We found five skulls of peculiar conformation and also numerous ornaments and utensils. 8 DEAD IN PICNIC TRAGEDY ST. THOMAS. ONTARIO. July 7. (A. P.)

Groehl of New York, claimed the money because of an assignment by Chapman to him. , rPr AasoesATao Paasa to Girrrra Tnm.J WASHINGTON, July 7. June postal revenues aggregated $2$.S6,518, or $3,-462,770 more than June last year, at 50 selected postoffices which return approximately 55 per cent of the total postal revenues. In announcing these figures today, Postmaster General New said it was impossible to say what influence nor mal growth of business and the new postal rates which went into effect April 15 had exercised, respectively. on the increase. "Although the receipts show an in crease of 14.72 per cent over June, 1924," said Mr. New, "it is fair to state that June, 1924. was a very poor month and showed a loss of 1.17 per cent in receipts from June, 1923. In contemplating the increase, this racx must be taken into consideration, as . won oi thr. further fact that in June, 1925, there was one more business day than in Tuno 19?4. Therefore, the in crease of 14.72, per cent is, to that ex tent, abnormal. G. P. RICHARDS, Asst. Cashier. 1 WM. WARREN JOHNSTOJf, Asst. Cashier. RICHARDS, Jr, , Asst. Cashier. SCOTT HATES H. W.
