Rolph Replies to Explana
tions Issued by "Solid
Nine" on Board of
"PLAIN WASTE OF
TIME," HE INSISTS
Asks How Spring Valley
Company Can Be Com
pelled to Arbitrate
Mayor Rolph yesterday replied to the
explanations issued Thursday by the
"solid nine" members of the board of
supervisors whoee opposing votes pre
vented the mayor's Spring Valley
water purchase solution from being
adopted by the board.
In his statement the mayor asks how
the "polid nine" propose to make
Spring Valley agree to the railroad
commission as a board of arbitration
when the water company already has
imofflclally declined to accept that
Hβ characterizes the plan "as a waste
of precious time," and emphasizes the
pressing need of speedily submitting ,
the purchase question to the people
along the lines suggested by the ad
visory water committee.
The mayor's statement follows:
"1 have carefully read the statement
issued by Supervisors William H. Mc-
Carthy, Paul Bancroft, George E.Gal
lagher. A. H. Oiannini. Adolf Kosh
land, Ralph McLeran and Daniel C.
"These gentlemen seem to object to
my analysis of the situation, although
in my statement I said nothing more
than that the nine supervisors who
voted against the proposal of the city
advisory water committee were re
sponsible for what they did.
"I have no criticism to make of the
recitals of their own records published
by these gentlemen of the board of
supervisors. It is enough to say that
these records have not brought the
poople any water. San Francisco
ADMITS PRICK TOO HIGH
"I Join with these supervisors in
thinking the price demanded by Spring
Valley too high, but our thinking it
too high does not make it any lower.
1 share also, in expressions of esteem
for the railroad commission. I have
heretofore stated, and again reiterate,
that I am willing that it arbitrate the
"But do these gentlemen of the
hoard of supervisors know how to
make Spring Valley arbitrate, or
make the railroad commission act as the
arbitrators, and give up a year or two
of the states time for that purpose?
"Has Spring Valley given its con
sent, or has the railroad commission
agreed to arbitrate if the Spring Val-
Vy consents? If not, do these super
iors know of any law compelling
consent on the part of either the
Spring Valley Water company or of
the state railroad commission?
••WASTE OF PRECIOIS TIME"
"t'nloss we can obtain such consent
from Spring Valley and from the state
railroad < ommission, in my opinion,
there is waste of precious time. We
are not doing anything or getting any
"Lond and tedious negotiations have
b«->en carried on, resulting in an offer
by the city to buy, subject to approval
by the people, at $37,000,000, and an
offer to sell for $37,500,000 by the cor
"Spring Valley Water company has
suggested settlement by arbitration or
"The city advisory water committee,
appointed by a resolution adopted
unanimously by the board of super
visors, has proposed unanimously, in
order that the subjert might be speed
ily submitted to the people—the only
,ludges—that the question, as between
$37.000,000 and $57.r.00,0n0, be the one
matter arbitrated, and this at a hearing
open to the public.
SUGGESTIONS TIR\F.D DOWX
"This has failed of approval by the
board of supervisors. They have
turned down a suggestion of solution
from their own committee, appointed
unanimously by them.
"It is my opinion that the suggestion
of arbitration of the city advisory
water committee should be accepted by
the board of supervisors and trans
mitted to the Spring Valley "Water com
pany, and If agreed to by then, then
the terms of arbitration be carried out,
Po that this all important matter may
lie passed upon by the voters at once.
"If ratified, this long standing, vexa
tious question is ended; if rejected, con
demnation must follow. In either case,
the administration will receive its in
structions from the citizens and will do
its duty. '
"This administration was elected t»
produce results, and nothing is accom
plished by offering plans that carry no
power of realization and that have been
heretofore rejected. This is a subject
vital to the people, and San Francisco

HUMAN DOVE OF
PEACE QUITS JOB
Former Governor of North
ern Luzon Arrives on
Liner From Islands
William F. Pack, Who
Tamed Head Hunters,
Tells of Their Traits
William P. Pack, who resigned re
cently as governor of the mountain
provinces of northern Luzon, a position
in which his work has won him world
wide fame, arrived here yesterday on
the liner Tenyo Maru. He has quit the
service, turned the task of governing
400,000 head hunters over to other
hands and will devote himself to de
veloping a plantation in which he is
interested in Cuba. He will first visit
Washington, D. C.
Governor Pack, unarmed and alone,
has accomplished in northern Luzon
what the Japanese government, with
its whole military establishment to
help it, has failed to do in the island
of Formosa. The problem in each
territory was the same—the head hunt
ing savage. Pack, unarmed and with
out escort, went in among his , blood
thirsty wards and made friends with
them. He made himself familiar with
their troubles and helped to straighten
out difficulties that for years had kept
many of the tribes in constant warfare.
HUMAN DOVE OF PEACE
As a'human dove of peace Pack was
a miracle. Each settlement of inter
tribal trouble was made the basis for a
new agreement, in which it was given
the chiefs to understand that, while
bygones would be bygones, whoever
started new trouble would have to deal
with Uncle Sam as represented by one
tall and determined Michigander named
He trusted the chiefs and they re
turned his confidence. There were out
breaks, but in each case the chiefs
themseives captured the offenders and
brought them to Pack, who gave them
a quick trial and such punishment as
the offense merited.
"Usually locked 'em up for a spell
and made 'em work like blazes," is the
way Pack describes Itis method of
making the punishment fit the crime.
"Those people are our friends," said
Pack, "and I hated to leave 'em. It
would break my heart to have some
body that didn't understand >m go in
and shoot 'em up. They are friends
worth having, too. [f we ever needed
help in a scrap we could go into those
same mountain provinces and pick up
50,000 of the loyalest. fightingest war
riors in all the world, and they'd be
tickled to death at the chance to go
into battle for us."
RABBIT AMOXG WILDCATS
When Pack was placed in charge of
the mountain provinces the assign
ment was regarded very much like
sending a rabbit into a convention of
wildcats. Pack won out. Japan, in
Formosa, with the same problem to
handle, has established a military cor
don around the island, which is being
gradually and relentlessly closed in on
the savage inhabitants in a war of
Pack ftrst went to tl>e Philippines

volunteers under command of Colonel
Cornelius Gardiner, who is now sta
