S.V. SUIT TO
BE ORDERED
TODAY
City Engineer to Head Com
mission in Charge of City
Water Supply
BULLETIN
Mayor Rolph in a telegram sent
from Washington today to Acting
Mayor Jennings stated that he ex
pects President Wilson to sign the
Hetch Hetchy bill before the end of
this week. The dispatch, which was
read before the board of supervisors
this afternoon amid loud applause, is
as follows:
"Press disaptches have informed
you fully of San Francisco's Hetch
Hetchy victory. It but remains for
me to confirm this joyful news and
to say that we will take home the
bacon to you just as soon as the
president officially seals it. We
hope for this before the end of this
week. Entire delegations here join
me in regards and congratulations to
you."
fan Francisco is jubilant today over
the passage of the Hetch Hetchy bin
hy the senate. CUy officials are confi
dent that the hill, which was*earj-ted
at midnight Saturday by a vote of «
to 2G. will be promptly signed by
President Wilson. The board of super
visors will finally pass this afternoon
the bill authorizing the condemnation
suit against the Spring Valley water
properties, which is regarded by city
officials as the first necessary step to
ward the solution of the water prob
lem.
WILL FORM WATER COMMISSION
Acting City Engineer Hunt said this
morning the first step in his office
after the Hetch Hetchy grant is
signed by the president will probably
be the formation of a water commis
sion to handle the project exclusively.
This will be similar to the Los Aii
peles aqueduct commission and that
of New York, and will mean that City
Engineer O'Shaughnessy will relin
quish his present position to become
its head, as the board will be distinct
fr. m the engineering bureau. En
gineers will then be sent into the field
and work will be begun la making the
surveys for the pipe line and tunnel.
It will also be necessary to acquire
several rights of way for the conduits
Engineer John R. Freeman has ad
vised that the city should start first
on the 2'< miles of tunnel through the
Coast rar.sre. and that a road should
be built f.iong Tuolumne canyon for
the transportation of supplies to the
Hetch Batchy valley.
NO LEG\L OBSTRUCTIONS
Assistant «' ty Attorney Searls said
today that wh*n th» president signs
the bill there will be no legal ob
structions in the way of the clfy
commencing work on the big project.
The only legal matters to come to the
city attorneys office will be the se
curing of the necessary rights of way.
Acting Mayor Jennings is prepar
ing a program for the celebration
which will he given the city's delega
tion when it returns from Washing
ton.
Jennings crystalized the sentiment
of the entire city when he said this
morning:
"I'm glad it's over. It was a long j
fight and a great victory. AH San j
Francisco and the bay regions should
be congratulated. Few realise how
much this Hetch Hetchy grant means.
The right to draw a practically Inex
haustible supply of fresh mountain
water from Hetch Hetchy valley will
make this city and those in the neigh
borhood supreme in prosperity and
heal'h. It means not only water, but
power.
".Vow that the struggle is success
ful this city should go forward by
leaps and bounds. It is the lack of
water, especially in the outlying dis
tricts, that has held us back. For
our immediate needs we must de
velop the Spring Valley water sys
tem. Its acquirement by condemna
tion is the first step. With the Cala
veras dam constructed, the Spring
Valley system will tide v* over the
period of years which must elapse
before we can bring the Hetch Hetchy
wat*»r here.*"
<OMI'LAINT READY TO FILE
Attorney Thomas E. Haven, special
counsel for the city in the Spring
Valley condemnation, announced that
he had the big condemnation com
plaint in readiness to be filed and
would commence suit immediately
upon the passage of the ordinance.
The suit should be filed early this
Week.
Th«» Hetch Hetchy bill gives the
city the right to build a dam across
the narrow mouth of the Hetch
Hetchy valley on a natural site, where
the foundations are of the same solid
granite as the high walls that inclose
the two mile cleft in the Sierras. By
the terms of the grant the city can
stoVe 224,000,000.000 gallons of flood
water of the Tuolumne river, which
flow goes to waste, and to flood the
floor of the Hetch Hechy valiey, two
thirds of which is now owned by the
municipality.

ESHLEMAN WILL
MIT JOHNSON
STAND
Commissioner to Give Gov
ernor Clear Field for Any
Office He Wants
"Will I be a candidate* for the gov
ernorship of California?'"
Railroad Commissioner .John M.
Eshleman hesitated just a moment.
He pushed aside a great pile of legal
looking papers that littered his desk
this morning, smiled a bit and said:
"I feel that Governor Johnson de
serves election to any office he de
sires, whether it be that of governor
or I'nited States senator. I do not
think that any outside influence
should be brought to bear in his
election. Such being the case I do
not believe that It is incumbent upon
me to make any expression until the
governor has spoken, and after he
has announced for which office he will
be a candidate there will be plenty
of time for me to make any decision
which may I desire."
At the same time gossip emanat
ing from the delegates who attended
the progressive slate central com
mittee meeting yestrday at the Pal
ace hotel had it that Governor John
son would run as Cnited States sena
tor and that Commissioner Eshleman
would be the progressive candidate
for governor of California.
From the same source it was
learned that both Francis J. Heney
and Chester Rowell of Fresno, both
progressive leaders, and both in the
running as prospective senators,
would withdraw if Governor John
son determines to seek the toga.

STANFORD TARNS
TO BE REPRINTED
Thirteen years ago Charles K. Field
and Will Irwin wrote a book of tales
of their college which they bound in
cardinal and called "Stanford Stories."
That was the work of their 'prentice
hands.
Now these two writers have become
regular journeymen authors, Mr.
Field being an editor and Mr. Irwin
being the biographer of reformed
train robbers and tinreformed spirit
mediums, and a most successful nov
elist and story writer. But they are
not ashamed of their 'prentice work
and have permitted tITe English club
of Stanford university to reprint the
collection of short stories, which has
been done, and they are now pub
lished, still in cardinal binding, by
A. M. Robertson, and will sell for
$1.50.
It is not the usual tiling for a book
of college stories to be reprinted, but
the Field-Irwin book is too good a
California story book to be permitted
to go out of print.
The stories deal with the early days
of Stanford university and with the
students'that gathered there 15 years
or more ago. But the spirit of college
students does not change in a decade
and a half, and so the tales are real,
live college stories.
From the farcical comedy of "A
Midwinter Madness." the opening yarn
of the book, through "Bannister s
Scoop,'* a story which proved in a
peculiarly forceful way the loyalty
which a college boy will have for his
alma mater and the struggles he will
face for her bright name, on to the
brave tale at the end. "One Commence.
merit," which la the story of the de
parture Of the Stanford students who
enlisted in the Spanish war. the 15
stories in the book are filled with
"college spirit" and xrlth pictures of
the picturesque of college.
The book is illustrated with photo
graphs of Stanford university and its
environment, which will make it
doubly interesting to all Who hold
Stanford university close to their
hearts or their lives.

aad started to bolt through a rear
door of the bank.

SHORTALL FLAYS
LAWYER IN COURT
Attorney James Sheehan, employed
by the United Railroads, was given a
torrid lecture by Police Judge Shortall
today, when he asked that the mag
istrate transfer the case of Frank
Spencer, a suspected pickpocket, to
another court.
Sheehan had complained of th«
$1,000 bail demanded in a vagrancy
case.
"Your attitude. Mr. Sheehan." de
clared Judge Shortall. "hinges on the
employment given you in these -cases.
If a pickpocket is caught in the United
Railroads' cars, you appear here and
i prosecute the defendant vigorously.
j However, in this case, the defendant
has employed you. and your attitude
is changed. You want a reduction in
the bail, but you won't get it.
"I wish you would take all your
I'nited Railroad cases out of my
court."
