EVENTS IN THE COUNTIES BORDERING ON BAY OF SAN FRANCISCO
NEW CHARTER IS
PROPOSED FOR
WHOLE COUNTY
Alameda Tax Association Pro
poses to Eliminate Duplica=
tion of Public Offices
Plans to Consolidate Govern*
men! Without Annexation
or Absorbing Cities
OAKLAND, Oct. .'.—Within the next
few days v meeting , of the executive
committee of the Tax association of
Alameda county wiJl be held for the
purpose of further discussing a pro
posed new county charter, which will
bring about a consolidation of rnuni
ripai i.nti county government, but one
which will preserve the right of feolf
government to ell cities -nd towns
affected. The effort of *'." T«OC asso
ciation is to eliminate th* , ''»>'nt dup
lication of many public •■>f- ■ «, bring
ing: them under one Sonera] bead, but
doing , so without any annexation of
territory or division of tlie, county.
The Tax association is absolutely op
posed t<. the lonp proposed division
of the w-fstern part of Alameda county
and a consolidated city and govern
inflrfit for the cities in that part of the
county. The Tax association states
that such a proposal contains many
objectionable features and that it has
endeavored to devise ways and means
by which a consolidation can be effected
v.'ithout division of territory or de
stroying the autonomy of the cities and
towns concerned.
AI'TOXOMY FOR CITII->
A preliminary report adopted at the
meeting of the executive commit-
LM says that, the association recog
nizes the fact that rural population can
not be taxed to support a city admin
istration and advocates the consolida
tion as far &*> "T'ssihle of city and coun
ty offices ■ that would leave undisturbed
the identity o" the various cities so
that they mijfht, in purely local affairs,
govern themselves. It further advo
cates an efficient form of county gov
ernment without placing the burden
of increased taxation on the suburban
districts.
The report further details as re
quisites of the proposed plan that it
must achieve several results; among
which are greater efficiency with con
sequent economy, elimination of all
duplication of effort and a more cen
tralized responsibility as opposed to
the utter lack of system and division
of authority now existing. *
For several months the association
has been making a close study of local
conditions and what has been done
in other parts of the country along
modern governmental lines. After the
general plan has been perfected at the
next meeting of the executive commit
tee, its plan will be presented at a
meeting to the entire membership of
the tax association.
At the meeting Monday afternoon a
statement from H. S. Gilbertson of the
National Short Ballot organization of
New York was read. Gilbertson was
formerly a resident of Oakland and
while here went extensively into gov
ernmental conditions and the members
of the committee found much that was
helpful in his statement. The mem
bers of the executive committee are:
F. J. Woodward, J. Y. Kccleston, Ar
thur H. Breed, E. A. Heron. M. L.
P.equa, Victor 11. Metcalf. Prof. C. L.

WORK FOR EXPERTS
Tn bringing up the subject a new
county charter before the Tax associa
tion, the executive committee, in its
report, t.ays in part:
"In order to carry out this work in
telligently a body of trained experts
must be secured to investigate care
fully existing conditions in the various
cities and prepare a county charter for
Alameda county that will thoroughly
cover the situation. The method of pro
cedure will be the organization of a
local staff of thoroughly competent
investigators who will prepare reports,
■which will be used as a guide In formu
lating - the proposed charter. In addi
tion to the local st%ff, experts from
other c;ties will be called into consul
tation.
"The various large corporations "will
lip requested to contribute the advice
r>; their departmental heads, such ac
engineering , , accounting, purchasing
and storekeeping.
"With the* aid of the local staff resi
dents of Alameda county and the ex
port advice as above outlined a docu
ment will be drafted and presented to
Mi"- , citizens of Alameda county.
"It may not b« generally known that
there is in New York, thanks to a
contributed by Mrs, E. H. Harri
tnan. a school conducted under the aus
pices of the bureau of municipal re
search that has for its sole object the
"education of municipal experts just as
mechanical and electrical engineers arc
flow educated by the great universi
ties.
"In order to secure this class of men.
and in order tn~at they may have the
incentive to properly prepare them
selves for the work, it is absolutely
jiocessary that the positions they fill
TvilJ afford the same certainty of con
tinuous employment and advancement
as U< guaranteed to men of equal abili
ty who e.nter the service of the large
corporations.
"In short the public service must be
fr'f-d of al! political taint and must he ;
made equally as attractive as , private
terricc
The preparation of a charter to be
offered to the < itizens of Alameda coun
ty avowedly will have, as its basic
principle. the application of these
standards. It must be a document that
will demand the same efficient service,
clearly defined responsibility, unit costs
and accurate costs sheets that now
characterize the best managed private
loncerns."

POLICE JAIL WRITER AND
HIS ANARCHISTIC BOOKS
larmon German Accused of De-
nouncing Government
OAKLAND, Oct. .'.—Harmon German,
accused by the police of being an
anarchist and distributing anarchistic
literature, was arrested today at his
home, 1239 Seventy-eighth street, by
Inspector William Emigh.
German is said to have written and
circulated at his own expense books
that denounce the national and state
governments and criticise the Oakland
police department and the courts.
Emigh found German's house flooded
with books, all written in an ultra
radical vein. Emigh had insmictions
to confiscate these books and had to
send a wagon for them.
A thorough investigation is being
made by the police and no charge has
been filed against German. He prob
ably will be charged with distribut
ing literature without a license and if
the evidence warrants it efforts may
be made to have him deported. Ger
man says that he was arrested 18 years
ago on a charge of vagrancy and was
confined in the city prison at San Jose
without a trial. This procedure, he
says embittered him against existing
conditions.

Are the Fly and Mosquito Dangerous?.-^*
The fly, with spongy feet, collects the invisible germs of diseases, spreads
hem over ouf food and poisons us with typhoid and cholera. The mosquito with
its bite injects into our veins malaria and yellow fever. The bacteria of consump
tion, or are everywhere present for us to breathe into our lungs. The blood
which flows through our veins and arteries is our protection. It should oontain
healthy red and white blood corpuscles—capable of warding off these disease
germs. Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery is a bleed medicine aad alterative

to Stockton and then returned to Hay
ward, where they obtained work a
short time before they were found.

ECCLESTON DENIES
DIVIDING COUPLE
Defendant in Alienation Suit
Says He Had Nothing to
Do With Trouble
OAKLAND, Oct. 2.—"1 never knew
that my brother loved any woman but
his wife until I heard him say so on
the witness stand," Batd Charles IT.
Eccleston»in defending himself against
a charge of alienating the affections
of his brother, Louie it. Beclestoti, rnude
by Mrs. Maude J. Kccleston.
Mrs. Eccleston said that she and
her husband lived an ideal life and
that Louie Eccleston "was the grand
est husband that ever was" until hJa
brother poisoned his mind against her.
Louie Eccleston testified that of his
own volition he fell in love with an
other woman when his wife's whims
killed his affection for her. Charles
H. Eccleston said he had nothing to
do with their affairs.
Mrs. Eccleston introduced several
letters to prove that her brother in
law was well versed' in the details of
their trouble. One letter written by
her husband apprised tiic defendant of
their attempts to patch up their quar
rels and ran:
"I guess you will think I am crazy
when you get this letter, but I want
you to think it all done for the best.
Maude and I have come to an under
standing. Maude is my wife. I took
her for better or for worse.
"Wβ have had better, and now, that
the worst presents itself, I am going
to give her a chance.
"There is no question of a separa
tion; it means that I am throwing
her out in this cruel world all alone.
"She is not like fOQHte girls who
would get out and make a living:. She
.says she wants me, anrl me ulone.
"She is a brave little woman and I
know she must love me.
"I want you and your wife, for my
sake, to treat Maude as you did before
all this came up, and if we can work
this out between ourselves we will
both be happy and fulfill the vows we
made at the altar."
Mrs. Eccleston obtained a decree of
divorce at Fresno on a cross com
plaint charging cruelty. She demands
125,000 damages in the complaint tiled
against Charles Hudson Eccleston.
BRIGGS TO QUALIFY
ON SCHOOL BOARD
BERKELEY, Oct. 2. —On the writ
ten advice of the district attorney's
office, the Berkeley board of educa
tion has reappointed Herbert F. Briggs
a school director, thus validating
Briggs' tenure of the office which he
has held for three months as a de
facto public official.
The district attorney's opinion, pre
pared by Deputy Walter J. Burpee,
held that Briggs' position became va
cant automatically June 7, the last
day of the statutory limit in which
he should have filed his bond in or
der to qualify after his previous ap
pointment. Being necessary to a quo
rum in the absence of Director Mrs.
Elinor Carlisle, Briggs has served
since then as a de facto director, and
a reappointment was required to legal
ize proceedings.
Briggs will qualify at once by filing
the proper bond. He is one of the two
appointed directors, having been named
as successor to Dr. William • Conger
Morgan, former president of the board,
who resigned. The law requires offi
cials to file bonds within 30 days after
receiving notice of appointment or
election. This Briggs neglected to do,
and the omission was not learned un
til some months had elapsed.

WOMEN LOSE SUIT
TO REVOKE DEED
OAKLAND, Oct. 2.—Mrs. Sarah Frag
ley, aged 80 years, living at San Lena
dro, and Mrs. Ollie V. Rawson have lost
their Interest in residence property In
that community valued at $9,000 by a
decision of the third district court of
appeal at Sacramento. The decision
sustains Superior Judge William H.
Waste.
Mrs. Fragley deed the property to
her late husband, Martin Fragley,
shortly before his death and then
sought to have the deed declared void
on the ground of an understanding with
him when it was written. The suit
was filed by Charles A. King and Joseph
G. Gallagher, executors of Fragley's
will.
Mrs. Fragley testified that she gave
Fragley the deed on the agreement
that if he died first it was to revert to
her. Witnesses testified that the trans
action was concluded when Fragley
deeded to his wife real property and
cash worth $9,000 and that the whole
affair was due to their efforts to
straighten out their property interests
when he felt he had not long to live.
Mrs. Fragley said that the deed was
placed in a black tin box in which she
kept many papers, to show that it was
never intended to go out of her pos
session. After the death of her hus
band she transferred the property in
question to Mrs. Rawson.

bers of the civic and commercial or
ganizations of the city. The protest -
ants objected to the ordinance, as it
.stands, but had no remedies to offer.

nance was too severe and would work
a hardship on many business men.

jecting to a billboard ordinance asi
tated by former Councilman Harold
Everhart, was filed with the council
