Council OK’s curfew, anti-loitering law

By TIM WILLIS

The Placerville City Council passed an emergency ordinance Tuesday creating new loitering and curfew restrictions, a move designed to tackle numerous complaints of harassment and crime committed by young people.

The people of San Francisco are prepared to accommodate the vast throng that is expected to sojourn within their gates during the Encampment. To see the brilliant illumination of the city, coupled with other unusual attractions, will be worth the trip. The principal feature of the electrical display will be the courts of honor, of which there are to be quite  a number, spanned across the principal streets. Each consists of a canopy of dazzling lights suspended in mid air far above the ground, from which will extend blazing streamers in graceful loops, reaching to the ornamental pillars on the sidewalk.
