ley of this city has retired from the
executive committee and directorate of
the Southern. Pacific Railroad Com

Harriman interests over the manage

ever, thought to have been the cause.

In the development of the Southern
Pacific. He was best known aB* gen

North "arolina cast 174,000 for Bryan and

onel George Pippy, who represented
the Dairymen's Association; some fifty
members of that organization and Dr,
Rupert Blue of the United States Hos
The dairymen and their attorneys
put up a strong fight to have the or
dinance greatly modified. They have

barn being of sufficient size to average
600 cubic feet of air space to each cow.
as required, a compromise was effected
and «0 feet or its equivalent was final
ly decided upon. In article 2 the point
about the size of windows brought up
a big discussion. The ordinance called
for windows 4x4 in size at Intervals o|
every six feet. Dairyman John D.
Daly of San Mateo said that windows
of this size would cause half of the
cows in the building: to jump through
them, as he knew from actual experi
After a long wrangle it was decided
that windows should be 2*^x4 and ul
distances of ten feet or its equivalent.
WA.VT GOOD FLOORS.
Under article 3 the floor must be so
impervious as to admit of no leakage
to the ground beneath, a gutter drain
to carry off discharges and a sewer to
connect therewith to carry the dis
charges 300 feet away from the barn.
Article 4 provides that feed boxes an;
to be so constructed that they can be
hosed out. The question of cleansing
the floors and walls of the stable, as
provided in article 6, was a hard nut to
crack. The board wanted the floors*
flushed every day after each milking
by water under high pressure.
Mr. Daly said this was entirely Im
practicable. The place would never
dry and the slippery floors 'would cause
the cows to fall down right and left.
Dr. Blue said flushing was, a good
thing and he thought the floors should
be flushed daily. He. however,
had never run a cow barn and spoke
from the standpoint of a bacterial ex
Henry Brewer suggested that lime
Instead of water be introduced.
It was decided that the floors shall
be sprinkled and cleaned once a day in
place of the slushing.
The location of the milk house wu a
bone of contention. In the- course of th.a
discussion Mr. Daly said he wanted to
understand if the board wanted tf>
drive all the milkmen out of business.
Dr. Ward in replying said that the
conditions were such that it was im
perative to have changes and that for
the health and welfare of* the people
they would have to take place. Milk
should hereafter come up to a bac
teriological standard and that was all
there was to it.
POINTS AT ISSUE.
"It Is a marvel to me," said - Mr.
Daly, "that if conditions are aa you
say that any one Is living In Califor
nia at present."
Dr. Ward retorted: "There are not
as many living as have a right to live,
and if we had pure milk they would
be living. It la in order to' protect
those who cannot protect themselves
that we are taking these measures."
The provisions are as follows:
The milkhouse. according- to article I, thaU
be In a arrarate building.
• Article II — Screens moit b« put orer all
windows and doors.
Article III — The milk must be taken to th»
mlikhouse in a covered call.
Article IV — Vats and ether receptacles uae£
to cool milk shall be of wood or of cement.
Article V says the milkbouse shall be waahed 1
Article VI— Helpers who handle milk shall
be personally clean.
F. F. Piant, owner of the Piant Farm
Dairy, . situated near Vallejo, states
that if the proposed ordinance was
passed he would be driven out of busi
ness. The provisions of the ordinance
would cause the production of milk to
almost double in price, hence the con
sumer in San Francisco, who 13 now
paying 8 1-3 cents a quart, will prob
ably be compelled to pay about 15 cents.
Great stress was laid In the
meeting on the subpject of the
Hotaling Model Dairy, which was
said to be nearest up to the standard
of the proposed ordinance. Mr. Daly
stated that he understood the Hotaling
dairy was losing $10,000 a year. -

which in some places is so decayed that
it will scarcely support the weight of a
The srjot where the accident hap
pened is near the east end of the bridge.
Dr. Dunn was driving at a rapid pace
when suddenly one" of the horses
stepped upon one of the rotten planks.
Both of its fore feet went through the
bridge and the horse was thrown, tear
ing the harness and breaking the pole
of the buggy. . .
The sudden stop threw Dr. Dunn
from the seat and he narrowly escaped
being hurled over the dashboard under
the struggling horses. By the time the
creature was extricated from its plight
its fore legs and shoulders were gashed
and torn by the splintered planks, and
the horse was permanently crippled.
The frantic struggles of the animal
smashed a large hole in the flimsy
flooring, which broke away repeatedly.
Dr. Dunn on his return immediately
notified -the Street Department of the
condition of the bridge, which has been
out of repair for a long time.

The contest over the estate of the
late Gertrude Goewey Havens, wife
of John W. Havens of Berkeley, has
been compromised, and to-morrow the
formal notice of the dismissal of the
contest will be presented to the court.
The Infant son and beir, bora a few

by the terms of the compromise, will
Inherit all of its mother's interest in
the Goewey Estate Company of San
Francisco, valued at about $30,000 and
bringing in a monthly income of be
tween $75 and $100.
John W. Havens, father of the in
fant, was 'appointed its guardian by
Judge \V. K. Gre.ene this morning for
the purpose of effecting the compro
mise. By agreement Charles, Frank
and James Goewey, who were contest
ing the probating of their sister's will,
are to receive about $2600 and some
personal property which formerly be
longed to her mother. The entire in
terest of the deceased in the - Goewey
Estate Company, however, is to go to
the child, who is 15 months old.
By a will made by Mrs. Havens on
her wedding day she left all of her
interest in the Goewey Estate. Com
pany to her three brothers. She and
her husband were to travel in Europe,
and she provided that, in case of ac
cident, the brothers should inherit the
property. The will was never changed
until Mrs. Havens was on her death
bed. A/son had been born to her. and
when she was told that she could not
recover she made a will leaving every
thing she possessed to the child.
The brothers filed their will" as
against the last one. and claimed that
their sister at the time she made thi3
will was not competent to make one,
and that she had been unduly influ
enced. She was so weak at • the time
that she was unable to sign her name
and could only make. her mark. By the
compromise the trial of the contest
will now be avoided.

We find that, notwithstanding the wealth of

lowing report regarding the charges
against Supervisor H. D. Rowe:
We havt Investigated the charge* brought
against Supervisor H D. Rowe in regard to
his having charged excessive mileage, and In
our Judgment Supervisor Rowe d,id noC over
charge mileage, but acted within the law pro
vided to govern Supervisor* in the matter of
Inasmuch as it has come to the attention of
the Jury that the Supervisors contemplate
changing the grade of the ground ' around the
Courthouse, wo consider .. any such change
would be an extravagant and useless expendi
ture of public moneys and that no additional
light would be given to the basement as a re
sult of proposed work. We strongly recom
mend that the proposed change be not made.
The grounds around the county buildings in
Oakland w« find are taken care of at an ex
pense of two hundred and forty- five dollars per
month, far which expenditure the work done
la entirely Inadequate, the grounds .around the
Courthouse being In a deplorable condition,
and that thla is by far too great an expendi
ture for services rendered.
The Board of Supervisors' refusal to
pay the claim of C. S. McMullln for
$20,000 for the discovery of assessable
property .which was not on the assess
ment roll is sustained.
This is the Jury's stand on the in
In the matter of the deficit In th» County
Infirmary fund, amounting to about $17,009,
Inasmuch as special legislation has in the past
been provided for the payment of a deficit in
the city and county of San Francisco, we rec
ommend that such special legislation be enacted
as will place the credit of the county on a
proper. basis and that future Boards of Super
visors be fo governed by such needful amend
ment to the county government act as will pre»
vent a recurrence of this deficit in any tund,
and the finances of the county should be so
managed as to leave a balance In each fund at
the end of the fiscal year! ' ¦ .
In relation to the extensive repairs being
doqe about the Courthouse at the present time,
we criticize the Supervisors for entering into
an- agreement for mechanical work, such as
paper hanging and painting, at an -expense* to
the county of $tt per day for eight hours' -work,
when the master painters' charge for private
work is but 1 1 50 and $5.
The District Attorney's office was renovated
at the enormous expense of 11030. being for
material furnished and, 135 days' labor at $6
per day. .. v
In the matter of moneys paid to indigent*,
we find that the amount of money paid la
largely In excess of last year, and we find no
reasonable explanation of this, and recommend
a more careful expenditure of the public
money for these cases.
We Indorse the plan of the Board of Super
visors to co-operate with the different charita
ble organizations, and believe this co-operation
will be productive of a saving to the 'county.
In the. matter of extravagances In purchase*
for the county, we find upon investigation that
the highest prices are often paid, and, in order
to curry out the Idea of purchasing from local
merchant)*, the county Is obliged In some cases
to pay a" very large percentage more than
goods could be purchased for in the open mar-
We deplore this insufficiency In the statutes
and the number of loopholes left for the
escapo of guilty parties because of technicali
ties and vague laws.
This applies In particular * to the racetrack
at Emeryville, the very hotbed and source
of crime. The county stink* with this evil,
and all honorable consideration should be given
to the limiting of Its corruption.
Emeryville was incorporated for the purpose
of prohibiting Interference with- the vice to be
carried on within Its . boundaries, millions of
dollars spent, and as a reward we receive
defalcations and ruin to our Institutions, both
public and private.
We recommend that a more definite law be
pasted governing poolselling and the necessity
of confining all horseraclng within the State
to two weeks In the year.
The Jury investigated the matter of
slot machines and caused all money
paying machines and gambling de
vices to be abolished throughout the
county, except such machines as are
run as merchandise machines, which
they were advised are run under the
protection of the law. With regard to
street signs and obstructions the Jury
recommended the regulations govern
ing and regulating billboards, fences
and street obstruction?, more particu
larly in front of buildings in course of
erection, be thoroughly revised and
enforced, especially within the fire
limits of the city, these regulations to
include proper passageway and pro
tection to pedestrians in front of
buildings in course of construction.

The Oakland race track came in for

There has been considerable criticism re

very moderate, we recommend that additional
facilities be granted and the institution be
made thoroughly up-to-date.

of the County Infirmary, more particularly
