THE SAN FRANCISCO GALL,; TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6. 1910
A RIGHT OF WAY
Southern Pacific Must Pave
Street in Return for the
OAKLAND. Sept. s.— After many
months of delay, the Southern Pacific
company has finally obtained a right
of way through the Talcott property,
north of East Fourteenth street in
Melrose along Bond street, for the ex
tension of the Seventh street local
line to .San Leandro. Owing to the
failure to obtain this right of way, the
railroad company stopped several
months ago the laying of tracks for
In a deed filed at the coifnty hall of
records, J. R. and Cynthia R. Talcott
and the Talcott land company grant to
the Central Pacific railway, an auxil
iary of the Southern Pacific company,
the exclusive right of operating a dou
ble track road through the Talcott
property. But in exchange for this
privilege the railroad must pave Bond
6treet, on which the line is. to run.-
A provision of the deed compels the
railroad company to macadamize be
tween the tracks and to lay macadam
for 12 feet on either side of the tracks.
As the tracks occupy 24 feet,' this will
simply- leave a six foot strip for side
walks on either side unpaved, as Bond
street is 60 feet wide. It -is also pro
vided that the railroad must grade the
street at its own expense and must
deposit the excavated earth in blocks
17, 18, .19- and 21 of the Melrose Heights
tract, which are. at present below
It is understood -that work will be
rushed "now on the: extension of the
line, for which more than -a mile* of
track has already been laid, as far as
Central avenue. Thirty houses in the
path of the line^ have yet to be re
moved, but it is believed no difficulty
will be experienced in their removal.
Electric service is rto be provided by
the Southern Pacific on this extension,
which may form a loop with the Stone
hurst branch, or may continue to San
Leandro. Hay ward and on to form a
loop with .the San Ramon line, mak
