"San Francisco, .Ian. 11, 1907. 
"Mr. Coleman, Chairman Judiciary 
Committee, Hon. Board of Supervis- 
ors, City — Dear Sir: In exi)lanation 
of the delay in not operating within 
the specified time of ninety days as 
called for by Ordinance No. r»1, we 



beg to state to your Honorable Com- 
mittee the true conditions of affairs. 

"Work was commenced upon that 
portion of Union street from Steiner 
to Polk streets, as we were of the 
opinion that inunediate transportation 
wa-; needed throughout that district. 
The amount covered has been nine 
blocks and crossings. Work on same 
is about completed, and it is the in- 
tention of the company to operate 
cars thereon within three weeks. 
Transfer arrangements with the 
United Railroads at Fillmore and Un- 
ion streets and also at Polk and 
Union streets are now under consid- 
eration, and we have every reason 
to believe that an amicable under- 
standing will be the result. After 
the completion of that portion, work 
will then be commenced from the fer- 
ries and carried forth as fast as con- 
ditions will allow. The scarcity of 
material, together with the stormy 
weather, has delayed the work con- 
siderable. 

"We would ask your Honorable 

Committee to report favorably for an 

extension of ninety days additional 

time in which to complete the work. 

"Yours respectfully. 

"GEO. A. NEWHALL, 

"I'resident."

the Judiciary Committee be granted 
one weeks further time within which

City Engineer and Engineer Jolin R. 
Price Examine and Report to Board 
of Supervisors in Detail Upon Ameri- 
can-Cosumnes Water Supply System 
of Bay Cities Water Company. 
On nu)ti(>n of Sui)ervisor Phillips: 
Resolution No. 7l() (New Series), as 

follows : 

Whereas. The present Municipal ad- 

ininstration of San Francisco was 



elected by the largest nuijority in 
ninHici])al history and larj^ely because 
the people accei)te(l its i)Iedges that if 
elected it would fnrnisli them with an 
abund.-uit. i)ure and wholesonu; supply 
of Sierra water from :i system owned 
and ()))erated by the city; and 

Whereas, From the adojition of the 
present city Charter up to the election 
of the present city government the offi- 
cials of the city fed the demands for 
public ownersbii) of water with high- 
sonnding i)romises that meant nothing 
to the people, but meant to the water 
monopoly undisputed and unmolested 
control of the city; and 

Whereas, The calamity of fire on and 
following the ISth day of April, 1!)0(!, 
has innnensely increased the necessi- 
ties of the public as to water; and 

Whereas, The time yet at the dis- 
]iosal of this administration, if its 
phnlges to the peo])le are to be main- 
tained and redeemed, is none too great 
to permit it tS) perform this great 
work ; and 

Whereas. Numerous propositions 
have been considered by the Board of 
Sui)ervis(n's and much time spent in 
inthlic discussion, investigation and de- 
liberation, and it is clear to this Board 
that tlij lesults properly expected by 
the public demand prompt action on 
the part of the Board of Supervisors ; 
and 

Whereas, The reports now before the 
Suitervisors show that one of the 
sonrces of \Aater supp;.".- offered to the 
city and heretofore ai a preliminary 
way favorably considered by the Board 
was experted and reconuuended b.v 
Colonel (ieorge II. Mendell as a water 
snpi)ly for this city, said Mendell be- 
ing considered one of the greatest en- 
gineers on water supply (piestions in 
the rnited States, and being the same 
(\)lonel Mendell afterward appointed 
president of the Board of Public Works 
of the city of San Francisco by ex- 
Mayor Jauies D. Phelati, which repcnl 
and re 'ommendations were published 
in the Municipal Reports of the cit,y 
(Municipal Reports, 187r)-7, page 715) ; 
and 

Whereas, A considerable portion of 
the same source of water supi)ly was 
afterwai-ds examined and experted and 
reported upon in behalf of the city of 
Sacramento and strongly reconnnended 
to that city by Engineer A. M. Hunt, 
who is recognized by many to be one 
of the ablest water sui)i)ly engineers 
living, an attested co])y of wliich writ- 



34 



ten report is iiuw on lile with tlie Cleric 
of tlie liojinl ; and 

Whereas, Another n'port upon this 
source of sui)pl.v Inu^ heretofore been 
prepared l»y (Mty Engineer Tliomas P. 
^V^od\^ard and Assistant City En^ji 
neer Jolm li. I'rice, in consultation with 
that distiniruished authority, Marsden 
Manson. conunendin;; and approvinji 
the same ]iropi'rties as an adiMiuate 
and <lesiral)le source of water supply 
for the city of 8au Francisco, and is 
now on file in the oHice of the Clerk 
of this Board, said source so recom- 
mended and approved l>y Euiiineers 
(Jeorye II. Mendell. A. .M. Hunt, 
Thomas I'. Woodward, John K. Price 
and Marsden Manson, heinj; that 
source offered to the city by the Bay 
Cities Water Company and known as 
the American-Cosuiiuies s(turce: and 

Whereas, The said Bay Cities Water 
Company has proposed to sell to the 
city of San Francisco this, the Ameri- 
<-au-Cosunuies Sierra water supply 
source, and to guarantee it to be ca- 
pable of delivering not less than sev- 
enty-five millions of gallons per day 
of pure mountain water, and further 
guaranteed to l)e so situated that the 
supply of such Sierra water may be in- 
creased from said American-Cosumnes 
source as required by the city's needs 
until more than two hundred million 
gallons per day can be procured there- 
from without the necessity of acquir- 
ing any additional source of supply; 
and 

Whereas, The American-Cosumnes 
source of supply, proposed by such Bay 
Cities Water Comi)any, is situated en- 
tirely within the State of California; 
lies between elevations of fifteen hun- 
dred and eleven thousand feet above 
tne sea, having an average elevation 
of nearly six thousand feet; is largely 
included in the Lake Tahoe National 
Forest Reserve; is almost uninhabit- 
ed; is not open to settlement, and is 
entirely within the State's jurisdiction 
and subject to its admirable sanitary 
laws, which insure to its waters per- 
IH'tual protection against pollution; 
and 

Whereas, From all infoiniation be- 
fore this Board on all obtainable water 
sui)ply sources this Board is confirmed" 
in its o|)inion that if the American- 
Cosumnes source has the advantages 
claimed for it in the reports of En- 
gineers Mendell, Woodward, Price, 
nunt and Manson, it is sui)erior to any 
other; and 

Whereas, It appears Ironi the re- 



Ijorts of Engineers Woodward, Price 
and Manson that at the time of their 
investigation reservoir capacity was 
only examined and reported upon to 
the extent of thirty-five thousand seven 
hundred and twenty millions of gal- 
lons of water; and 

Whereas, The American-Cosumnes 
people now guarantee that their sys- 
tem includes reservoir sites that insure 
a capacity of over oiie hundred thoti- 
sand million gallons of water storage, 
being nearly three times the amount 
reported on by Engineers Woodward, 
Price and Manson ; and 

Whereas, This Board is advised 
that 70,100 million gallons of reser- 
voir cai)acity would be ample to insure 
a daily supply of more than 200,000,- 
000 gallons per day; therfore be it 

Resolved, That the City Engineer of 
the City and County of San Francisco 
and John R. Price, former assistant 
engineer of said City and County, in 
charge of water supply investigation, 
be and they are hereby instructed im- 
mediately to make full, careful and 
complete examination of such maps, 
plans, notes of survey and computa- 
tion sheets appearing in the engineer- 
ing reports already submitted, and to 
demand of the proponents of the 
American-Cosumnes water supply sys- 
tem the production for their use in 
the preparation of their report all en- 
gineering data, surveys, etc., in their 
possession. And thereupon to inform 
this Board as follows: 

In Reference to 75-Million-Gallon Daily 
Supply Proposed to Be Developed by 
the Bay Cities Water Company. 

a. Having reference only to physi- 
cal conditions such as water shed area, 
rainfall, runoff, dams, canals, reser- 
voirs and the various existing struc- 
tures and such structures as the pro- 
ponents propose to install at their own 
cost : 

First— In case the City of San Fran- 
cisco should acquire the rights, prop- 
erties and improvi'ments included in 
the Bay Cities Water Company's proi)0- 
sition, could the city rely on a con- 
tinuous and immediate daily supi)ly 
therefrom . of 7o-million gallons of 
water delivered at tne point specified 
by said proponents? 

Second — From what natural subdi- 
visions of the American-Cosunnies 
water sheds do the proponents intend 
to i)ro<'urt> said 75-million gallons of 
daily supply? 

b. Having reference to the volume 
of water which will be delivered by 



the works included in proponent's of- 
fer, and the elevation at which propon- 
ents intend delivering the same: 

First— What horsepower value does 
it possess, and how much electrical 
energy can be developed therefrom; 
jind 

Second — Are the structures, dams, 
canals, ditches, reservoirs, etc, that 
are erected, or that proponents intend 
erecting, so planned as to be perma- 
nent in character, adequate and suited 
to their intended uses? 

Third — Will the 75-million gallon 
daily supply of water to be delivered 
by the works included in the preposi- 
tion of Bay Cities Water Company be 
of good quality, that is, pure and free 
from contamination? 

Fourth — What is che daily supply of 
water that will be provided from the 
American-Cosumnes water sheds by 
the structures now existing and the 
further structures which Bay Cities 
^Vater Company proposes to make at 
its own cost, as included in its propo- 
sition to the city? 

Fifth — Will it be a continuous and 
assured supply? 

Sixth — What is the estimated num- 
ber of years that will elapse l)efore 
the cit.v will require a greater daily 
supply than that which would be pro- 
vided' by the improvements which the 
Bay Cities Water Company proposes 
to make, as included in its proposition 
to the city? 

In Reference to a Daily Supply of 200 Mil- 
lion Gallons of Water Upon Further 
Development of the American-Co- 
sumnes Water Sheds. 
Having reference only to the physi- 
cal conditions, such as water-shed 
area, rainfall and run-off. together with 
such additions to water storage facili- 
ties as are jwssible within the Ameri- 
can-Cosumes water sheds. Then under 
full development of re<iuired dams, 
canals, reservoirs and other structures 
recpiisite. necessary and possil)le of be- 
ing made thereon : 

Fii-st— Could the city of San Fran- 
cisco safely rely upon the American- 
Cosumnes region f(U' a continuing daily 
supplv of 2110 million gallons of water? 
Second— What ])r()purti()u of the 200 
million gallons daily water su]iply 
could be procured from the American 
Itiver division of the American-Co- 
sumnes water slied ; also what propor- 
tion thereof woiild <-ome from the Co- 
snnuies division, and from what parts 
of such division? 

Third — If it be found Uiat all of the 



Cosuniiu's division of the American- 
Cosumnes water sheds is not re(iuisite 
to the provision of a daily supply of 
200 million gallons, then what part of 
the Cosumnes division would be ex- 
cluded, and what are the characteris- 
tics of the exchided ])arts, and how 
great a daily suppl.v of water could be 
I»roduced therefrom, considering them 
alone? 

Fourth — What is the estimated ulti- 
mate capacity in nullion gallons of 
water per day of the entire American- 
Cosumnes water sheds when the reser- 
voir sites thereon have been develoi)ed 
to their fr.llest capacity, as offered by 
the Bay Cities Water Company. 

Fifth— The Bay Cities Water Com- 
pany has proposed that it will build 
certain structures for the pi'ovision of 
a daily supply of 75 million gallons. 
Are these struetiu'es as planned for 
the 7") million gallons adequate and 
suitable for use in connection with the 
develo])ment of a daily supply of 200 
nullion gallons of water from the 
American-Cosumnes region ? 

Sixth — What is the estimated unm- 
l)er of years that must elai)se before 
the city of San Francisco will require 
a daily water supi)ly of 200 million 
gallons? ^ 

Seventh — Is the .system offered by 
the Bay Cities Water Company so de- 
signed that additions may be conveni- 
ently made th(<reto for the procure- 
ment of water supplies in excess of 
the 7r» million gallons i)er day. whei\ 
the sanu> are re(|uired b.v the city? 
In General. 

The attention of the engineers is 
called to the fact that the Bay Cities 
Water Company has offered a guaran- 
tee of its titles to all the land, water 
rights, reservoir sites, structures, etc.. 
contained within its proposal, and be- 
fore submission to the people. Should 
its system be approved Ity the Board 
for such submission, these titles will 
be carefully investigat(>d and ])assed 
upon by the city's odicial legal ad- 
visers. The object of the Board in re- 
(luesting this report (.n the physical 
conditions above set forth is to enable 
it to deterniin(> whether the supply of- 
fered meets the re<piirements of the 
citv for a municipal water supply, and 
if it be so found, then the Board will 
inv(>stigate and determine npon the 
(piestion of titles and of the prir-e of 
said supi)ly: and if the adequacy of 
s.-iid suiiidy, and the titles thereto and 
(he price thereof shall be found satis-

VETO MESSAGE. 
Providing for Increased Salaries of Aud-

Thi' following message from bis 
Honor the Mayor, returning witliont 
his approval and with his objections 
thereto, Resohition No. 718 (New j 
Series), was received, read and ordered i. 



published and entered at largo in the

Committee: 

Mayor's Office, City and County of San 

Francisco, Executive Department. 

January :J1, 1907. 

To the Honorable the Board of Sii- 
])er visors — Gentlemen : I hereby veto 
nnd return without my approval Reso- 
lution No. 7i:> (New Series), which 
raises the salaries of several clerks in 
the Auditor's office, for the following 
reasons: 

I believe that the increase in the 
snl.-irios (>{ tne positions mentioned in 
said Resolution is out of all proportion, 
and while it may b(^ necessary, is, in 
Tny opinion, too great an Increase. I 
have always been in favor of increas- 
ing the salaries of underpaid employes 
and believe that the clerks mentioned 
in the Auditor's office should receive 
an increase over their present salary 
allowance, bur to raise one clerk's sal- 
ary twenty-five per cent, another's fifty 
per cent and another's seventy-five per 
<-ent seems to be aispropurtionate. 
Yours very truly, 

E. E. SCHMITZ. Mayor.

templated route traversed private 
land, through which the Company 
had no privilege to pass, and in con- 



58

Report of Committee on Hospital and 

Health on Protests Against Maintenance 

of Certain Stables. 
To the Honorable, the Board of Su- 
l>ervisors of the City and County 
of San Francisco : 

(ientlemen — Your Committee on Hos- 
pital and Health bej^s leave to respect- 
fully report that it has visited a num- 
ber of stables now conductinij l)usiness 
in this city, and which have been pro- 
tested atrainst by i)roperty owners and 
residents in their vicinity as beiui; a 
menace to property on account of un- 
sanitary conditions and danger of the 
construction of the buildings from a tire 
iriint of view. 

A numl)er of these stables were in- 
vestigated by your *"onimittee and in 
many instances the conditions were as 



set I'oi-tii in the jji-otests. and in fact a 
filthy and very unsanitary condition. 

The places mostly found to be a 
menace to the interests of inhabitants 
from the above reasons are: 

At No. '.]~}~r> Seventeenth street there 
is absolutely no sanitation in these 
premises. 

At No. oiins Seventeenth street there 
is no drain whatever to carry off the 
stable acctimul.-ttion. 

At No. CO Dorland street there is no 
sanitation, and the structure is over- 
crowded with horses, and indeed iu a 
very bad and lilthy condition. 

()l»l)osite No. ."."i.jo Seventeenth street 
the sanit.ary conditions are very bad. 

Y(tur Committee would state that 
scarlet fever has been discovered in 
many homes in th.s locality and no 
doubt it can be attributable to the 
above unsanitary conditions of the 
neighborhood, brought about by such 
bad and uncleanly places as these 
staliles referred to. 

Your Committee would respectfully 
call attention of the Board of Health 
to the existing conditions and have the 
said nuisances abated ; also the Board 
of I'ublic AVorks' attention is i-espect- 
fully called to the poor character of 
the buildings, which are unsafe, and 
some n^lief offered to condemn them. 

The Board of Health is particularly 
requested to inspect me barns of War- 
ren & Buckman at premises situate at 
1' ifteenth and Dolores streets and com- 
l)el some per(\'ct sanitary regulations 
therein, that the people of the neigh- 
borhood may b(> protected from nuis- 
.iiice and danger of epidemic to their 
homes. 

THOMAS F. LONERGAN, 
J. J. FUREY. 
Motion. 

Supervisor Eonergan moved that the 
Rei>ort be udoiitcd and that copies 
thereof be transmitted to the Depart- 
ments specified therein and also to the 
District Attorney and to the I'olice

With re.icard to the new City and

stated that the cpiestion of whether 
or not the building could be constructed

sideration, which (piestion was now 
settled by the opinion of the City At- 
torney, herewith presented : 

Opinion of City Attorney That Hospital 
Proposed Under Bond Issue IVlust Be 
Located on Almshouse Tract. 
Office of City Attorney, San Francisco. 
February 4, 1!M)7. 
(ientlemen — I acknowledge the re- 
ceipt of your iiiquirv, through Super- 
visor Lonergan. as to whetlier or not 
the moneys api)ropriated under the 
i)ond issue for the ])urj)ose of building 
a city and coiuit.y hospital ma.v be ex- 
pended in the erection of such building 
on the site of the jiresent city and 
coimty hos])ital. or els(nvhere. as tlH> 
board may deem i)ropcr. In .-inswer 
thereto. I will c;ill yoiu' attention to 
1)111 number lOS."'., ordinance nundter 
iHO, deternuning and declaring the ne- 
cessity for the erection of a new city 
juid county hospitjil and directing i)lans 
therefor "upon a site the i>roperty of 
the cit.v ancl coiuit.v, selected in accord 



ance with resolution nnnd)er 551 of the 
lioard of Sujiervisors. providing for the 
selection, adoption and dedication of a 
site for the proposed cit.v and county 
hospital building, apjiroved .June -~. 
i!»t;o." 

In said resolution it is provided that 
the proposed city ana county hospit.il 
shall be located ujion the portion of tlx- 
Almshouse Tract pursuant to the oi'di- 
nance to which we have called your at- 
tention. A bond election was held, 
resulting in the authorization of the 
expenditure of the sum of one million 
dollars in accordance with resolution 
number .''mI. 

It will thus appear that the peo])lc 
in voting for the ajipropriation and the 
location did so with the express declar- 
ation that said cit.v and count.v hosjiitai 
should 1)6 ituilt upon the site selected 
in said resolution. I am therefore of 
the opinion that the mone.v so directed 
to be expended in the manner specified 
in said resolution must be used in the 
erection of the said hospital upon the 
site selected by said resolution, and 
not otherwise.

REPORT OF WATER RATES COMMIT-

Sau Francisco, February 28, 1007. 
To the lionorable the Board of Super-

San r'ramisco — 

(xentlemen : Your Committee on 
\V;»ter Kates, to whom were referred 
the matter of preparing a bill fixing 
and determining water rates to be col- 
lected in the City and County of San 
Francisco, for the year commencing

fully considered the transcript of testi- 
mony taken during the investigation 
recentl.v had before .vour Honorable 
I'.oard sitting in ( onunittee of the 
Whole, together with the exhibits 
ottered in evidence during said sitcing. 

From the testimony adduced during 
the investigation had before your Hon- 
orable Board, It appears that a reduc- 
tion of z.") per centum was effected in 
the rate collectable under the Water 
Ordinance of IIMMI from those now be- 
ing collected by the Si)ring Valley 
>\'ater v ompany under tlie Ordinance 
of V.>02, and altiiongli the Spring Valley 
\Vater > ompany ollicials re(iuest the 
restoration of the former rate of 1!)02. 
nothing, in the testimony giv(>n, in the 
opinion of your Connnittei\ would war- 
rant it to recede from the position 
taken one year ago. 

Vour Committee therefore recom- 
mends the re-adoption of the Water 
Uales Ordinan<'e of lOtMi. and is ol the 
opiiuon that if the schechde of rates 
thei-ein si)ecilied ai-e accei)te(l by the 
Spring \'alle.v Water Comp.any. or an.v 
other comiiany engaged in the business 
of suiii>Iying water in the City and 
C(»unty of San Francisco without re- 
course to litigation, tuat it will i)r(ivi(h> 
a lair and (Minitable return ui»i>n the 
investment of properties acttially used 
ill supplying the City and County of 
San Fr.Miicisco and its inh.-ibitants with 



a jiure and wholesome suppl.v of water. 

Vour Committee presents herewith a 
bill fixing and estalilishing water rates 
for the next ensuing fiscal year, with 
the reeonnnendatlon of its passage for 
printing. 

Inasmuch as the Spring Valley Water 
Company has persisted in defiance of 
law in collecting water rates in excess 
of those established by your Honorable 
Board by Ordinance No. 177.~>, passed 
March 19, 190G, and approved March 20, 
P.XKJ, your Committee recommends that 
under the authority granted your Hon- 
orable Board by Section 1 of Article 
XIV of the Constitution of the State 
of California, that your Honorable 
Board declare forfeited and escheated 
to the City and County of San Fran- 
cisco, a munici]tal coriiaration. for the 
jiublic use. all its franchises and water 
works. 

Vour Connnittee presents herewith a 
resolution in consonance with its rec- 
ommeiuh'Uion and requests its adoption 
by your Honorable Board.

Protest of E. P. E. Troy Against Sale 
Franchise. 

The Board of Supervisors of the 
City and County of San Francisco: 

I protest against the award of the 
franchise for a street railway running 
from Scott and Page streets to Twen- 
tieth and Potrero aveiuie. for wliich 
Ijids are to be opened March 2.5, and I 
demand tliat all action on this matter 
be rescinded and annulletl. 

This franchise is of no value to any- 
one except the United Railroads. You 
have not provided conditions in it that 
will adequately comi)ensate the city 
for the privilege. The total cost of 
the roadbed and track, cars and car- 
barn for this line will not exceed 
$200,000. 

As this is to be a crosstown line, it 
would undoubtedly earn as much as 
tne Fillmore street line. During the 
recent Arbitration proceedings, the 
United Railroads acknowledged that 
the Fillmore street line carried ID.:! 
passengers i)er car mile, of whom 1 ;;..'') 
))aid a cash fare of five cents, or ^'>^I^ 
cents i)er car mile. The least number 
of daily car miles over the 2 2-\] miles 
of streets this i)roposed franchise cov- 
ers would be 1270. This would bring- 
daily receipts of $857.25, or $;^12,S9G 



annually. As the annual e:;pense o" 
oiieration would not exceed $55,57(i, the 
annual profit of this line should be 
not less tha:i $257,320. This, at four 
per cent, is equal to taking property of 
this city valued at Sfi.4:i;l.o00, and mak- 
ing a gift of it to the United Railroads, 
to bolster up its tottering fictitious 
capitalization. 

Not one of the persons signing the 
petition you refer to in the call for 
bids resides along the route. Eacn 
gives his address as within the iieigli- 
borhood of the oflfices of the Uniteii 
Railroads, coriier Oak and Broderick 
streets.

visors — Gentlemen: Bursuant to Sec- 
tion IG, Article II, Chapter I, of the 
Charter. I herewith return without my 
approval and I veto Resolution No. 910 
(New Series), declaring the ])Osition of 
George B. Keane, Clerk of the Board 
of Supervisors, vacant, and electing 
John H. Ryan to fill the vacancy, for 
the following reasons: 

1. Because the Resolution does not 
state the cause for the removal of Mr. 
George B. Keane. 

2. If there should be any grounds 
for such removal lie should be granted 
a fair and impartial trial. 

3. Just two weeks prior to the i)as- 
sage of this Resolution which I return 
without my approval, he was unani- 
mously elected by the Board of Super- 
visors, and there is nothing staled in 
the Reeolution nor has anything been 
brought to my attention that he has 
dene during these two weeks which 
would justify his removal in such a 
summary manner. 

4. Reposing entire confidence in the 
integrity and ability of Mr. George B. 
Keane, I cannot ajiprove a Resolution 
calling for his dismissal, which states 
no grounds for such dismissal and 
which leaves in the minds of the i)eo- 
ple of the City of San Francisco an 
impression that he has been unworthy 
of the position, v/hich I personally 
know he has filled with credit. Yours 
truly, 

E. E. SCHMITZ. xMayor.

ing were present : Messrs. E. L. Iloag,

'i he resoluti<m is self-e.\i)lanat(U\v. 

It is ho|»ed that your Honorable 
body will favor the i>lan suggested .»y 
the San Francisco R«il Estate lioard. 
We firndy believe that the action taken 
in the case of the Spring Valley Water 
X omi)any was a well meaning attempt 
to secure an adeeuate and pure supply 
of water from the Sierras for citv inn*- 
pises. but we also believe that the de- 
velopments in the case have shown 
that the expected result was not at- 
tained and that the only effect was to 
prevent the water company from bor- 
rowing monev to rehabilitate its plant. 
We res])ectfully i)etition ,vour Ikiu- 
orable body to take favoraide action 
uiion the suggestions cMubodied in the 
resolutions of this P>n;ird.
