BAD LANGUAGE IN LAWS
About the Worst English on
Record in the Law for
PUZZLES IN EVERY SECTION.
The Law Won't Work, Nobody Un
derstands It and the Teachers
The teachers of San Francisco are in a
state of distraction over the teachers' pen
sion law created by the last Legislature.
That is not surprising, for that teachers'
pension act threatens to drive the Supreme
Court to drink if it ever gets before that
body. Apart from its relation to the
interests of the public school teachers of
the State this law in nine sections is of
interest because it is a shining example of
what a State Legislature can do in the way
of butchering the Queen's English and in
building out of words obscurities, incon
sistencies, stupidities and fool mandates;
laws of the land which cannot be under
stood, and which could not be made to
work if anybody could make out how they
were intended to work.
And this, too, is a law for school-teach
ers. They framed a law themselves which
was presented to the Legislature. The
English was better than the legal pro
visions, the legislators thought. When it
escaped from the lawmakers it was a tine
looking specimen of a law for a free people
with a low percentage of illiteracy, but the
Governor signed it. Now the teachers are
wondering in a disgusted way what the
law does mean anyway.
Briefly the law provides that a teacher
who has taught for a generation may re
tire on a pension if she can get one. It ]
was intended to provide a fund from which
real pensions might come. After all sorts
of public >ources were laid aside it was de
cided by the Legislature that the teachers |
might furnish one themselves if they i
wanted one. and the law justifies the sus- i
picion that it was intended that the teach- !
ers should pay over 1 per cent of their
monthly salaries for that purpose. The
teachers would not object to that if the
law would work.
One provision of the law is that teachers
now employed must sign a document Dy
which they assume the burdens and bene
fits of the law if they want a future pen
sion, but another section of the law has
caused the widespread opinion that by
putting their names on that paper they
forfeit their rijrhts to their tenure of otiice
euaranteed l>y the law construed by the
Supreme Court in the Kennedy and Fair
.Most of the leading teachers have ad
vised against signing the document pre
scribed by the act. Al« concede that,
while the law is not satisfactory now. it is
so much gained, and will be amended two
years hence. One faction favors .signing
and taking chances, and about sixty of the
900 teachers of the City have done bo.
A short time ago a meeting of teachers
started the scheme of organizing a new
pension society, the members of which
would contribute monthly 1 per cent of
their salaries, to be deposited in a savings
bank and turned over to the official fund
in two years, if the law is satisfactorily
amended then. An agreement to this ef
fect has been circulated and has received a
good many signatures.
A week or so ago somebody started
around among the schools an agreement
that those signing it would "sign the bill,"
as it is termed, when 500 teachers here had
agreed to do so. The other day the prin
cipal of one school passed the* agreement
on to another school lor circulation there.
It then had 269 signatures, many teachers
having signed it "in a ri t or sudden reck
lessness. The principal sent it by a small
boy who had been good, and the small
boy lost it somehow. Now the promoters
of this particular scheme are making des
perate efforts to find out who signed the
agreement and to get them to sign over
again, but most of these teachers have
changed their minds since and concluded
not to sign after all.
Section 1 of the law makes the Super
intendent of Schools, the Treasurer and the
chairman of the Board of Supervisors of
each county the schoolteachers' retire
ment fund commissioners, and it is their
power and duty to administer the pension
fund, designate beneficiaries, etc.
Section 3 is one of tne sticklers. It
Whenever any teacher entitled to the bene
fits oJ this aci has laught in the public schools
of this S:ate for a period of twenty years, and
shall become incapacitated from performing
the auties of a teacher, .^uch teacher shall, at
his or her request, and may in the discretion
of the Board of School Trustees without such
request, be retired as a teacher and shall there
after receive an annuity out of said fuud of $45
Twenty-five years' service gives a pen
sion of $50 a month. The teachers fear
that they may place themselves in the
power of the Board of Education to retire
them "at iheir discretion" for incapacity.
Lawyers who have given opinions on this
section are divided as to whether the
incapacity is a condition of retirement
that would have to be established, as now,
by an open and impartial trial.
Section 4 is a long one and purports to
provide a somewhat imposing i;iachinery
for taking care of the fund, and prescribes
books, reports and various clerical duties
for Commissioners, Boards of Education,
Auditors and Treasurers, but it is so
weird a thing when its puzzle is sought to
be untangled that Auditor Broderick,
Treasurer Widber and others concerned
have in despair given up trying to figure
out any way by which the necessary 1 per
cent of a teacher's salary could legally be
withheld if the teacher insisted that it
should be done, or that the Treasurer
could legally get the real money into his
Section 6 beggars description and some
other things. This gem is as follows:
llTo provide a fund for the payments provided
for in this act the secretary of the Board of
Education in each municipality shall certify
monthly to the Treasurer of sueh'municipality,
and the Board of Trustees in every school
district outside of such municipalities shall
certify and pay over in like manner to the
County Treasurer of each county, and 1 per
cent of the amount aue each teacher as salary
for the previous month; and all moneys de
rived from any other source shall be * paid
to the County Treasurer to the credit of such
fund. Such board shall also receive and place
to the credit of said fund all moneys received
from donations, legacies, gifts, bequest* or
Some things here can be guessed at, but
some cannot. What shall the secretary
''certify monthly?" Possibly the 1 per
cent. What shall* the Trustees "certify and
pay over" in like manner, and in "what
"like manner" The Trustees do not gen
erally handle the salaries, so that must be
something else. This section all at once
deals with all municipalities, such as
Alameda, which are nowhere ehe given
anything to do with the law, and who
could not have anything to do with it
under this law. Then the "Trustees," who
could not get the money unless they stole
it, are to "certify ana pay over" to the
County Treasure/of "each" county in the
State, which would beabigjob. The "and
1 percent" looks bad, but it reads that
way in the statutes of California. Several
Jawycrs have puzzled over the clause '"and
all moneys derived from any other source
shall be paid to the County Treasurer to
the credit of such fund. 7 ' The general
opinion is thatit directs all public reve
nues whatever from taxes, licenses, etc., to
be paid into the pension fund, and if so the
fund is all right after all.
Section 7 provides that the act shall be
binding "only upon public school teachers
who after the pahsage of this act shall sign
and deliver to the Board of Education of
the municipality in which they are em
ployed a notice in substantially the follow
This particular law will be a dead letter
for two years, because it's good for noth
ing, although it has received considerable
of that valuable "force of public opinion"
which plays on the laws.
TEIED TO END HIS LIFE.
Gnatave Anderson Slashed His Throat
and AVri-tH With a Razor.
Despondency drove Gustave Anderson,
to an attemDt at suicide yesterday
at noon. For some time past he
has been employed at the Nevada House
on Napa street, at the Potrero, as a dish
washer. Within the past few days his
friends noticed that he was in low spirits.
and several times he remarked that he did
not see anything worth living for. His
remarks were not taken seriously, however,
and nothing more was thought of it until
yesterday when he was found in his room
with a razor gash on his throat, and ugly
wounds on each wrist from which the
blood was flowing profusely. He is in a
precarious condition, but may recover.
Two More Companies Favor
Working the Brunswick
Three Corporations Still to Take
Action— Stockholders' Meet
The work of amalgamating the various
mining companies on the Comstock for the
purpose of purchasing additional ground
and developing the celebrated Brunswick
lode is being pushed rapidly forward. The
directors of two companies met yesterday
and took favorable action on the propo
sition, and called meetings of their stock
holders to consider the matter. A meeting
of the directors of the Savage mine will be
held to-morrow morning, and those of the
Consolidated California and Virginia and
of tne Hale and Norcross will be held on
The proposition briefly stated is that the
allied mines on the Comstock shall jointly
purchase on the Brunswick lode, a mile
east of the Comstock ledge, territory equal
in area to that now owned by them on the
old localities. To each company then will
be assigned separate territory, occupying
the same relative position as the mines do
on the Comstock.
The Brunswick ledce hap always been
considered a promising location. It is
drained by the Sutro tunnel, and, at the
I point where the tunnel pierces it, it shows
1 better indications than did the Comstock
at a similar point. North of the territory
J which it is proposed to acquire is the old
I Monte Cristq mine, and south of it, on the
same ledge, is the Occidental mine, where
such rich discoveries have recently been
made. The property can be secured at a
very low figure for mining ground— from
$5 to $10 a foot.
The companies whose boards of direct
ors have thus far approved the proposition
are the Chollar Mining Company, the
Potosi Mining Company, the Gould it
Curry Mining Company and the Best &
Belcher Mining Company.

Their Letter Service Discontinued.
The letter department of Wells, Fargo & Co.
■went out of existence yesterday. The manage
ment of the company announced several weeks
ago that the letter branch of their business
would be abolished, as, owing to the improve-
I ments in the Government postal system, the
express company had found their business un
profitable. In the days gone by the company's
letter service was extensive in this state, and
reached places which the Government routes
j did not touch. At one time the company
I handled from 10,000 to 1-J.OOO letter? per day,
