That the decision to purchase pround
for the purpose of extending the city
hall plan into a people's center was
the result of mature judgment and
could never be criticised by any indi
vidual or party, is the opinion of Wil
liam A. Masee, a well known student
of values and statistics in regard to
"The city, or any individual, for that
matter, could not choose a better time
to buy property than now. In the
next 20 years values will increase
steadily and rapidly, particularly a-bout
the center of the city. The establish

by the city and the decision reached

BAB KTUXCISCO IS RICH
"The bonds will command a large
premium, not only because the people
will vote almost unanimously for them,
and so establish them as a sound and
safe investment, but because the af
fairs of this city are in a healthy and
lusty condition. We are safe, finan
cially. This is proven in many ways.
We are sixth instead of eighth in bank
clearings in the cities of United States,
having overtaken Kansas City and
Pittaburg in the last year.
"\\*e have gone steadily forward and
have not been retarded even by the fire
or the panic of 1907. The city's bonded
indebtedness as compared to the as
sessed valuation is but 3 per cent. This
is varveled at by the outside world.
The fact is that of the $230,000,000
»p#nt in since the fire
only 114, (TOO.000 was brought from the
"We are rich. The per capita wealth
here is 1182.9* —$13.69 more than Chi
cago. The per capita mortgage debt is
but IT per cent, compared with New
York s "T'-s per cent and Pittsburgh
41 per cent.
BONDS COMMAND PREMIUM
"The bond brokers look us up in
Wall street and find us a safe people
to invest in. The bonds will command
a substantial premium, which will go
back into the fund to repay principal
and interest, according to a wise meas
ure adopted by the administration.
•While it is not the business of the
city to deal in property, it is only
sound business judgment, considering
the conditions existing here, to acquire
land for projected improvements at
this time. It is simply "playing safe.'
It is done abroad. There are numerous
instances of cities having purchased
land for anticipated improvements, and
of later deciding upon a more modified
plan of civic center. In the meantime
the value of the property has increased
to such an extent that the sale of the
land not required for the new plans
has more than paid for the entire
improvements, including the ground
(OMMOX SEXSE WILI> RULE
"It is only a common sense polic*y to
acquire this land. With a site for an
auditorium near the city hall, we are
in a position of being able to accept
the offer of the exposition company
and to have erected another noble

people always like to have something:

Much lias been said of the esthetic
side of h civic or people's center. I
believe 1n the esthetic value too, ap

practical and mathematical man there
are sufficient reasons and sound ones
for the people's center plans as out

VOTE FOR THE BONDS IF
YOU DESIRE PROSPERITY
The rity hall and people's center bond
lspue to l"" voted on Thursday is for
$8,800,000. of -which it is estimated that
$4,500,000 will be necessary for the
erection of a new city hall on the old
site—already city land —and $4,300,000
for the purchase of lands adjacent to
the old site. The acquisition of this ad
diriona! area will make a magnificent
people's center possible.
Five per cent interest will be paid
on the bonds. They will be issued in
denominations of $1,000 each, and their
redemption will spread over a period
of about 4.i years, so that the tax
ULT7 to redeem them will amount
to an infinitesimal sum per annum. The
average tax per annum to keep up the
interest payments on the bonds and to
pay off the principal will not exceed 30
cents <>n the $1,000 assessed value of
This is the mite that property own
ers will contribute toward the most
wonderful public center in the. United
States- m evidence of civic progress
that will spread San Francisco's fame

city hall will be begun just as soon as

so, and work will be prosecuted day and

Immediately after the issue is author

begin the erection of a $1,000,000 audi
torium on the people's center grounds.
The exposition directors have set aside
a positive appropriation of $1,000,000
with which to construct this noble and

city will supply the site, and the audi

SECRET OF PAST
Search for Missing Daughter
Revealed by Events of the
The story of a search by an attor
ney for his missing daughter obscured
by the events of the graft prosecution
here in 1907 was revealed yesterday in
the court of Judge W. M. Conley, extra
session 3, when Miss L. H. Condon,
stenographer for the Oliver grand jury,
and holder of many of the secrets of
the prosecution's forces, wa^ ordered
to pay $50 and costs to D. E. Besecker
for detective work performed by an
agent of Burns.
The case has been prosecuted in the
court of Justice of the Peace James G.
Conlon and the plaintiff, D. E. Besecker,
failed to obtain a judgment for $100
demanded for the detective's work.
Appeal was taken to Conley. who re
versed the action of the lower court
and granted the remuneration.
The detective worked for Miss Con
don while employed by Burns and as
signed his claim to Besecker. The
daughter of an attorney disappeared
while the father was absent from San
Francisco, and the mother appealed to
Miss Condon for assistance. Miss
Condon asked J. G. Lawlor, one of
Burns' agents, to assist in a search for
her and promised Lawlor $100 if she
were found before the father returned.
The girl communicated with the
mother before the return of the father,
and Miss Condon repudiated the debt.
The detective asserted that his efforts
resulted in the daughter's getting in
communication with the family and
Judge Conlej supported that conten
BRIBE OF $3 OFFERED,
SO CITIZEN ALLEGES
Grand Jury Will Consider J. D.
The election commission yesterday
referred to the grand Jury a communi
cation received from J. D. Morton, who
wa» on the election board last October,
in which Morton states that William
Bottrill of 1011 Valencia street offered
him $3 to stay at home on election day,
October 10, 1911, and thus allow him
to appoint C. F. Case in his place.
Bottrill has since been removed and
R. A. Tucker was appointed.
Wliile the alleged offer is stated by
Morton to have been made before the
election of October 10, the election com
mission did rot have the communica
tion officially before it until yesterday.
Registrar Zemansky stated yesterday
that he knew nothing: about what steps
have been taken concerning Morton'*
"If such an offer was made," he said,
"it was illegal. In effect it would be
inducing a man to fail to respond as an
election officer, which is against the
law. For that reason we decided to
lay the matter before the grand jury."
The election commission decided yes
terday to keep the registration office
open evenings from April 1 to 13, in

who will register for the presidential

conventions and congresses coming here
during the world's fair period may be

$8,800,000, the citizens will, in reality,
be receiving a return of 19,800,000. f°r
the $1,000,000 auditorium, to be erect
ed by the exposition, will be an integral
and permanent part of the people's
But these facts I have given are but
material ones, demonstrating the ease
with which the city can acquire so
beautiful a public place.
Other considerations suggest them
selves to every patriotic San Francis
can. We want a unanimous vote given
the bond issue, to place Pan Francisco
firmly in the mind of the nation- aa a
city animated by enthusiasm and op
timism. We want to show that San
Francisco believes in her great future,
that our feet are set on the forward
path, and that we ijitende to progress
and grow without deviation or pause.
The voting of this bond issue will be
the first great forward step in the work
of the administration, of which I am
one. Construction will begin prac
tically when the labor of razing build
ings on the exposition grounds begins.
Exposition and city will set the dirt
to flying, put thousands of men to work,
begin the process of cleaning up and
building up that will make San Fran
cisco, In the eyes of every visitor in
1911, the hustling, live, progressive
leader of the Pacific coast that we want
her to be.
Pedli-ate five minutes of your time
next Thursday to civic pride and pa
triotism. Vote "yesf on the proposal
to build a city hall worthy of San
P^ranclsco, and to acquire lands nearby
for the auditorium and other magnifi

AND PHYSICIANS SUED
Plaintiff Demands $5,250 for Al

Suit for $5,250 against the North

filed yesterday in the superior court by
Eugene F. Moran, who alleges that the
hospital association and the doctors re
fused to care for him while 111, in spite
of the fact that he held a contract
calling for medical attention.
Moran claims that he entered into a
written agreement with the association
on March 31. 1909. whereby he was to
be taken care of in case of illness. On
December 20, 1911, Moran says, he was
seized with pains in his stomach and
called the association to his aid.
Doctor Bruguiere was the first phy
sician to arrive, and Moran states that
he told the doctor he thought the
symptoms were those of appendicitis.
Doctor Bruguiere made two examina
tions, and the next day Doctor Zuss
man was called into consultation.
Moran says the doctors told him to
stay at home and await a further diag
nosis by them. The pain, however,
became too acute, according to the
complaint, and Moran went to a private
hospital, where he was operated on and
his appendix removed.

commencing in April, put- some thought oh ( the chances of reaching
your Eastern terminal "on time." Is this ■ going to be important to
you? The "on time" operation of Burlington trains is commented
on by travelers all over the country. In a recent calendar year, the
Chicago-Denver Limited arrived in Denver "on time" 355 days out
of 365. Such evidences of perfect mechanism, integrity of ; road bed
and a highly-deyeloped organization should appeal to those to whom
punctuality, in train operation is of much importance. ■
