Sends Circular To
The following circular dealing with
the school situation and of interest to
teachers has been sent out by the
Board of Education of the city and
county of San Francisco.
To Principals and Teachers-Ladies
First It is evident that the cal
amity which has overwhelmed San
Francisco will greatly reduce its
municipal revenues for the next fiscal
year,beginning July 1.190G. Therefore
every department of public service
will ,be obliged to curtail operating
expenses. It is expected that the
appropriation for public instruction
will be greatly reduced for the ensil
ing year. This condition will neces
sitate the most stringent economy.
It is therefore suggested that as
many teachers as possible secure em
ployment elsewhere on leaves of ab
sence from this department, which
will be granted by the Board of Edu
cation without in the least jeopardiz
ing their connection with the San
Francisco School Department.
Second All teachers who have not
made out monthly and annual reports
should put themselves in comiuinica
tion with their principals and do so
Third All teachers are requested
to keep this office x informed of
changes in address.
Fourth The following announce
ment has been received from Presi
dent Dailey of the San Jose Normal
School. "The San Jose Normal School
will hold no summer session this year.
The recent earthquake has damaged
our main building so badly that it
cannot be occupied. The architects
estimate that it will require $i'.),000
to make the necessary repairs, and
that it will take three or four months
to have the building ready for use. It
is with much regret that we announce
that the summer school for l'.iOb is
abolished, but a regular six weeks
sessiou will be held in 1907."
Fifth The following 4 resolutions
were passed by the Board of Educa
tioa May 7th in regard to the gradu
atiou of pupils:
"Whereas, As a result of the
earthquake of April 13, 190t, it has
been impossible to complete the usual
amount of work in the schools of the
city aud county of San Francisco, and
whereas, it would appear unjust to
deprive the classes which would have
graduated in June of this year of
their diplomas, therefore, be it and
it is hereby
''ftesolved, Tat all pupils who,
in the opinion of the principal, and as
evidenced by their work at the time
of the disaster, wouid have graduated,
receive their diplomas without fur
ther attendance upon school exer
cises. '"iesolved, That graduating exer
i cises be held for the public schools of
I San Francisco in the ODen, air at
Golden Gate Park June 2, l(J0b at 2
o'clock P. M., and t.iat the pro
gramme for such event be forthwith
prepared and carried ni'o effect by
this department "
Principals please send names of
graduates as soon as possible.
Sixth The teachers serving their
probationary period are requested to
at once communicate with this ollice
the date of their assignment, con
firmed, if possible, by documentary
evidence, together with any other
information which will enable prompt
I action in placing them on the regular

Pacific Grove, May 2-'. The trou
ble over the site of Chinatown, which
was destroyed last wet 1; by fire,
threatens to ussume international
proportions. Officials of the Pacific
Improvement Company have for
months desired to eject the Chinese
from their picturesque village east of
Pacific Grove. The conflagration
seemed to furnish the desired oppor
tunity, and on Saturday the company
built a fence across the road by which
access to the place has been obtained
for twenty years Next morning
this fence was torn down, but whs
restored by the Pacific Improvement
Company, which then posted live
armed guards there. Meanwhile the
Chinese commenced the reconstruc
tion of their dwellings with canvas
and such material as was at hand.
Prior, the lard ageyt for the com
pany, and his guards, proceeded to
demolish these dwellings, and he aud
a guard were arrested for this pro
ceeding by Monterey constables and
haled before Justice Michaelis, charg
ed with misdemeanor.
Aa a rataliatory measure this
morning thirteen Chinese, one woman,
and one white, were arrested and
taken before Justice Pcils, charged
with malicious mischief.
This afternoon Mucager Shepard
of the Pacific improvement Company
appeared on the scene and ordered
the place fenced in tight. Entry was
refused to ljmticr teams and water is
also shut t IT.
The Chinese,. determined to main
tairt their eights, have appealed to
their Consul and the Chinese Minister
from Washington, who has been visit
ing Oakland. Their claim to land
dales from 1811, since which time
they allege they have had continuous
Five special constables have bet u
sviirn in to protect the company's
pruptrty, and at present they hold
the road. Later. Colore! Mann, Com
mandant at the Presidio, roue down
to China tovn, but was s'opp.'d by an
armed deputy. After wit nosing the
conduct of other deputies, he threat
ened to report the samn to the Unit
ed fitatt s authorities.
Gigantic Deal In
One of the biggest deals in real
estate ar J water i ights ever con
summated iu Hawaii has jjot been
It involve the sa'e of Pacific
Height and the water sources an !
right.-, helot., ing to that property.
Al-o piaetiea'.'y the v. hi !e of Pa uoa
Valley and a'l the springs and water
sources in the vaiiev.
It also involves the utilization of
the water from these sources for
water power and the establishment
of a great paper and fibre frctory.
Finally the plan contemplates a:i
addition to the water supply of Hon
olulu without cost to the community.
The promoter of the plans thus
outlined is T. B. Reynolds the repre
senfative in Hawaii of the New York
Paper Export Association with of
fices in the Young building. He has
secured options on all the land and
water rights involved. Tie proposes
for himself and his associates to es
tablish a paper fibre factory on the
property purchased. Power for all
this and other purposes will be se
cured from the water sources which
are included in the purchase all of
which are at an elevation of several
hundred feet ' above sea level and
hence will afford abundant "head"
for the generation of large power.
The financing of the scheme in
volves some elements of novelty. It
is proposed to issue bonds to the
amount of $200,000. In return for
the water supply furnished the city,
which will be the whole amount of
water used for power purposes the
use of the water for power in no wise
affecting its suitability for other
use the county will be asked to
guarantee the bond issue which will
be for twenty years, taking as its
security a trust deed t.or the whole
property inVolved, land aud water
sources. Thus if the promoters fai
to pay interest and principle and the
county is obliged to do so, it will have
the property itself.
The promoters are to pay the
principal and interest of the bonds.
Thus the county will get this addition
to its water supply for the period of
twenty years, the term of the bond
issue, without the expenditure of
money and merely for the loan of its
These are but the outlines of the
plat:. Jt is understood that the price
to be paid for Pacific Heights, Pauoa
Valley, and the springs and other
sources of water is in the n -ighbor
hood of a quarter of a million dollars.
Besides this there are some other
properties owned or represented by
