OPPOSES A BOND ELECTION.
MAYOR LAND SENDS A VETO
MESSAGE.
Explains Why He Thinks tke Elec
tion Should be Put Off Till
. Next Spring.
Mayor Land has come to the conclu
sion that it would entail a useless ex
pense to hold a bond election, at this
time, when all the propositions—water,
Bewers, High School, water mains, etc.,
can be submitted next spring. He sent
the following message to the City Trus
tees last evening in which he inter
poses his veto of the election ordi
nance:
To the Board of Trustees of the city
of Sacramento: I herewith return to
your honorable board, with my disap
proval indorsed thereon, ordinance' No.
—, entitled "An ordinance determining
that the public interest and necessity
demand the acquisition, construction
end completion of certain municipal
l)uildings and improvements for public
school and other municipal uses and
purposes, viz: a High School building
With building lot and furniture there
fur and a complete system of water
mains throughout the city of Sacra
mento, and a water duibo and wing
dam in connection therewith, all for the
aise of the said city of Sacramento, and
tthe cost of each of which improvements
■will be too great to be paid out of the
ordinary annual income of the said
city."
My reasons for disapproving said or
dinance are as follows: «
Notwithstanding that at all times
«ince my induction into office I have
advocated and been strongly in favor
«f the issuance of bonds for the pur
pose of procuring money necessary to
proceed with certain municipal im
provements, which I deemed absolutely
needed by the municipality—namely, a
sewerage system, water main system,
etc., I believe, in view of the fact that
.the matter of submitting the proposi
tion for a new sewerage system has
Jjeen deferred until the plans and spec
ifications therefor shall have been re
vised and approved by our City En
gineer, and Consulting Engineer C. E.
Orunsky, and that the sewerage sys
item proposition cannot be submitted
(until some time in the beginning of
ttiext year, that it would be inadvisable
«at this time to hold a special election,
entailing a large expense to the tax-
JTay<*rs, at which but two propositions—
.the High School and water mains—can
he presented to the voters.
I am advised that if the election
■which it is now proposed to hold, and
lat which these two propositions are to
*>c presented, is held and the other
steps thereafter taken as provided by
Saw for the sale of the bonds —assuming
that the bond propositions carry—it will
be toward the latter end of this year
"before the money realized from the sale
of the bonds can be utilized for the
proposed improvements, and it will then
be too late in the year to begin the
necessary work.
I assume, and it seems to be conced
ed, that undoubtedly in the forepart of I
next year the City Trustees will call
another special election, at which will
be submitted to the people the proposi
tion of adopting an entire new system
ef sewers on the lines and according to
the plans and specifications now being
considered and prepared by our en
gineers. This will involve the expense
to the taxpayers of an additional out
lay for a special election. The ex
pense of holding a special election will
be at least $3,000, and I think the ex
pense of one special election should be
saved to the taxpayers under the cir
cumstances. All the propositions—water,
■water mains, sewers, High School and
"wharf—can be submitted the forepart
of the coming year, at which time it
is undoubtedly the intention of the
board to submit the sewerage proposi
ti oiu
No particular time in the matter of
with these improvements
-will be lost, and the additional ex-
Tense I referred to will be saved. Some
opposition has developed to the plans
and specifications which have been
■adopted for the system of water mains.
It the present election is deferred until
next year the objections to these plans
fnay be thoroughly discussed and con
sidered, and if necessary the plans may
J>e revised. Very respectfully,
WM. LAND, Mayor.
Trustee Devine moved that the May
tor's veto to the bond election ordinance
be sustained.
Trustee' Kent said that the reasons
given by the Mayor for his veto were
the best that could be used for passing
it over his veto. The water mains
ere almost worn out, as was found
<when the large cne was «epaired some
&ime ago. The mains could be used
tfor clear water as well as the present
jquallty and they can be better laid in
the w inter than at any other time. He
.moved as an amendment that the mat-
Jter lie over for a week. Of course

" When I first wrote you I was completely dis
couraged." says Mrs. W. M. Satterly, living at
Ricliford, Tioga Co., N. Y. (P, O. Box 40). in a
letter to Dr. Pierce. " I was in pain all the time,
could not lie in bed on account of severe, sharp
cutting pains in my back and rijrht hip. Hail
pain all through the lower part of my body and
my elbows hurt me so much I could scarcely
lift my baby. My skin was dry, harsh and
scaly and hung like sacks ou my arms. My
husband called the doctor, and he said it was
weakness, and my age. His medicine did me
no good. I kept getting worse and weaker. It
seemed I should go crazy. One day I wrote
you and received advice. I have taken Dr.
Pierces Golden Medical Discovery, his ' Fa

now I can lie in bed with some coniforT and can
do a good day 's work."

is no necessity of a High School, but
those who have children feel the need
of it. No one who will go and see the j
High School in winter will doubt that
there should be a new one.
Trustee Dolan was astonished that
the Mayor, after urging the submission
of the ordinance, should now turn
around and veto it. He would like to
have citizens in the eastern part of the
city who were present tell of the need
of water. He moved the veto be over
ridden and was opposed to delay.
Trustee Brown said the people of the
city are crying for water and cannot
get enough for their needs. The High
School, too, had been asked for for
years and was greatly needed. He
moved that the ordinance be passed
over the veto.
Trustee Douglas warned the board
that the mains on I street are not safe,
as they had to be banded in order to
hold them together. The people need
water in the mains throughout the city.
Trustee Devine argued that if the
building of mains be postponed, the
Iron trust may be broken and iron low
er than it is at present. Again, the
system of mains is large enough to ac
commodate a city as large as this will
be in fifty years. In relation to the
High School, he had, while In San
Francisco, conferred on the plane of the
proposed building with competent me
chanics at the Build-ens' Exchange and
they had said it could not be built on
those plans under $120,000, at the very
lowest estimate. A prominent con
tractor in this city had told hlim that it
would coat $200,000. He proposed to
protect the people.
In response to a remark by P. S.
Driver as- to the power of the board to
pass the ordinance over the Mayor's
veto. Corporation Counsel Devine was
asked concerning it and said tlhe char
ter provided regarding bond elections,
that the ordinance must be passed by
two-thirds of the board, with the con
sent of the Executive. He did not
want, without further consideration, to
say definitely that the board could not
pass it over the veto, but advised de
lay in action, in order to examine the
question.
Trustee Tebbets said it was not more
than six months since the icity came
near losing the most important indus
try in the city by the conflagration at
the railroad shops and the company
has asked for increased water mains.
He was astonished to hear the veto
read. For years, also the Trustees have
been asked to build a High School. The
children in winter have to cross the
street in all sorts of weather and many
have suffered and some have died of
pneumonia. He would vote to pass
the ordinance over the veto.
The ordinance was passed over the
veto, all but Devine voting aye and the
President declared it carried.
On motion of Trustee Kent the Cor
poration Counsel was requested to give
his opinion next week on the legality
of the board's action.
Corporation Counsel Devine said that
if, by any possibility his opinion should
be that the board's action is legal, it
would be necessary to pass the second
ordinance next week, so it must be
ready for passage.
Trustee Devine said that Mr. Dev
lin, when Corporation Counsel, gave a
similar opinion in Mayor Steinman's
time and! the board did,not try to con
travene the veto.
GRUHLER'S TROUBLES.
He is Required to Give Another
Bond to Keep the Peace.
Fritz Gruhler was tried in the Police
Court yesterday morning for disturb
ing the peace of N. Hullen, and threat
ening to kill him. Hullen Is a foreman
on the X street railway work, and he
discharged the defendant for drunken
ness and interfering with men at work.
"He called me a vile name, struck at
me and interfered with the men at
work," said Hullen.
Policeman Ash swore that defendant
struck at Hullen in his presence, and
swore he'd kill Hullen and others. "He
also made threats against me," said
Officer Ash, "and his wife told me he
was a dangerous, excitable man."
Hullen was recalled, and he swore he
feared the defendant would kill him or
do him great bodily harm.
Michael Norton, called by the defend
ant, said: "Gruhler called Hullen
names, and was then arrested."
The defendant swore he was dis
charged for complaining that he did
not get enough money; that Hullen
waved his fist in his face, cursed him,
and! told him to return to work no more.
Witness said Officer Ash had a grudge
against him, and that Hullen was only
trying to make trouble.
Sentence was suspended in the charge
of disturbing the peace, and defendant
was required to give a bond of $200 to
keep the peace for six months.

THE BECORD-TJNIOIJ*, SACRAMENTO, TUESDAY. JtHNJfI 13, 1899.
TO IMPROVE NAVIGATION.
THE GOVERNMENT ENGINEERS
FAVOR WTNGDAMS.
How They Propose to Expend tke
Appropriation of $30,000 for
the Sacramento.
Congressman DeVries has forwarded
to the Chamber of Commerce of this
city the following letter from the Chief
of Engineers of tha United States Army
concerning the character of the im
provements recommended for the Sac
ramento River by the coast engineers,
and which have been approved by the
Secretary of War:
United States Engineer Office,
San Francisco (Cal.), -May 5, 1899.
Brigadier General John M, Wise,
Chief of Engineers, U. Si A.,
Washington, D. C.
General: The Beard of Engineers ap
pointed under the provisions of the
River and Harbor Act of June 3, 1890,
has the honor to submit the following
project for the expenditure of funds
appropriated by Congress in Act of
March 3, 1899, for—
"Improving Sacramento River, Cali
fornia, from the city of Sacramento to
the mouth; continuing improvement,
$30,000; provided that a contract or
contracts may be entered into by the
Secretary of War for such materials
and work as may be necessary to carry
out the revised project printed in House
Document No. 180, Fifty-fifth Con
gress, second session, and House Docu
ment No. 48, Fifty-fifth Congress,
third session, to be paid for as appro
priations may from time to time be
made by law, not to exceed in the ag
gregate the sum of $250,000, exclusive
of amount herein and heretofore ap
propriated', etc. * * *" i
The projects referred to are reports
made by the Beard of Engineers, dated
respectively December 14, 1597, and
October 11, 1898, which recommend a
treatment of the river below Sacra
mento, at certain shoals known as Iron
House, Foot of Idta Island, Head of Ida
Island, near Clarksburg, vicinity of
Heacock Shoals and opposite to and
just below the city of Sacramento, by
means of contraction works or wing
dams, consisting of piles, brush and
rock, at each cf above localities, sup
plemented by dredging if required, the
total estimated cost of which was $280,
--000.
Of the shoals mentioned, those in the
immediate vicinity of Sacramento are
probably the more important, as they
are variable in position and depth, and
cause more interference with naviga
tion than those below. For this reason,
it is deemed injudicious to attempt their
removal or betterment before the oth
ers.
From cross-sections of the river made
in recent years, and based on surveys
made under direction of the Board, and
by officers formerly in charge of the
river, it is noted that in long reaches
of the river where the low-water width
between banks is approximately 500
feet, channel depths of seven feet or
more, of ample width, are found; for
this reason, we have designed wing
dams which will afford about a 500
feet width of channel and have located
them on the right bank, because the
wharves of the city of Sacramento are
situated on the left bank, which is also
revetted with stone, and therefore not
liable to wash. The works as desig
nated ought to maintain a satisfactory
channel of sufficient depth on the
slightly concave side of the river next
to the wharves, where most required.
The exact location of the proposed
wing dams, the order in which they
should be built, the number required,
and their distance apart, are matters
not definitely fixed. It would probably
be well to commence at the upper end
of the reach, as shown on tracing here
with, and after the first three or four
wing dams are constructed, to ob
serve whether or not they are produc
ing the efTect hoped for. and thus de
termine the proper location of those to
be built below in that reach. It is pos
sible that a lesser number of wing
dams than those shown on the map
may produce the desired > effect; if so,
only such as are necessary should be
built; it is hardly probable that a
greater number will be required for
this reach.
It cannot be determined beforehand,
just when the material scoured from
this should well find lodgment. There
is a material contraction in the first
bend below this reach about a mile be
low the city of Sacramento, where the
low-water width of the river is about
300 feet, which gradually increases to
6CO feet in width, and in which depths
from ten to thirty feet are found; then
the width again increases to 700 or 800
feet just above Sutteiville, where other
shoals have occasionally interfered
with navigation. Should the treatment
of the Sa.cramento reach prove success
ful, we could thereafter probably as
certain where the material scoured had
found lodgment, and then determine
the propriety of continuing similar
treatment for the next shoal reach be
low, and locate the positions for such
wing dams as might be necessary. At
other shoals, where occasional wing
dams have been built to relieve the
pressing wants of navigation, and with
out regard to any systematic treatment
of the river, the effect in. materially
deepening the water was almost im
mediate.
It has been observed in this river that
bars which in some seasons interfered
for a short time with navigation would
disappear before preparation for their
removal could be made. As an illus
tration of this fact, two engineer boards
in 1891 made estimates for the removal
of shoals at Iron House, Ida Island and
ether localities referred to in their re
ports. In 1892 Congress appropriated
money, a portion of which could be
used for the removal of these shoals.

Surveys were thereupon made near
low water stage with a view ro defi
nitely fix suitable locations for wing
dams. The surveys showed conclusive
ly that at each of these shoals, except
ing Heacock's, the depth of water ex
ceeded that which was deemed sufficient
by both boards. Heacock shoals was
improved by means of wir.sr dams in
1894, and have given/ no further trouble
since; neither have any of the other
shoals, excepting-those in the imme
diate vicinity of Sacramento.
It is for this reason that the board
hesitates to design and fix locations for
wing dams in separate reaches of the
river, or to recommend that contracts
be made for the construction of such
works, when it is possible that before
works could be completed In any one
reach, the necessity for those below
might no longer exist, and other local
ities which now have a sufficient depth
might deteriorate and require treat
ment which had not been provided for.
In the absence of information where
future shoate will be when the reach
near Sacramento shall have been im
proved, or of even an approximation of
the quantities of material which may
be required to build contraction works
elsewhere, the board recommends at
present that no work below Sacramento
other than in the reach herein referred
to be done, for which it believes $30,
--000 is sufficient. It also recommends
that this portion of the work, for eco
nomical reasons, be done by contract
based upon unit prices of material in
place.
The wing dams will consist of two
parallel rows of piles about six feet
apart, the piles in each row being about
ten feet between centers. On these,
longitudinal stringers of 2xß plank will
be spiked, as nearly as practicable at
low water level, the spaces between the
rows of piles to be filled with Handled
brush or fascines, the top of same to
be from one to three feet above low
water level, tie pieces of 2xß plank to
be spiked to the top of the piles to
keep the rows from spreading. On
the top of the brush, and between the
longitudinal and ties pieces, place suffi
cient rock to hold the brush securely
.in place. The shore end of each wing
dam to be about two feet higher than
its cuter end. A brush mattress about
one foot in thickness and six feet in
width t(.\ be placed against each darn on
its up-stream side, and one of like
thickness and ten feet in width to be
placed on the down stream side. The
outer end of each dam to have a brush
mattress extending ten to fifteen feet
into the river and of twenty-three feet
width up and down stream: ail mats
to be covered with sufficient sitone to
secure them to the river bottom. At
the outer end of each alternate dam,
drive a cluster of three pi'-es, whose
tops shall be well fastened together; and
extend above the highest water level.
The only systematic work heretofore
done on the lower river below Sacra
mento was that at Heacock shoals in
1894, where wing dams were built on
both sides of the river, and the re
quired depth was obtained and has
since been maintained. Three tempo
rary wing dams were Built in 1897-9S
by the crew of the United States snag
boat near the lower end of the reach
which it is now proposed to treat: the
effect was almost immediate. Snags
have been removed by the snagboat
nearly every year. The great mass of
work heretofore done on the Sacramento
River has been that of snagging and
the building of temporary wing dams
in that portion of the rivf.r above Sac
ramento. This has all been done by
the crew of the swagboat. A large
crevasse known as Jacob's Slough was
closed in 1893 by contract. Respectfully

CASTRO AND GALLAGHER.
They Are Sentenced for Disturbing
the Peace.
Marshall Castro and John Gallagher
were tried in the Police Court yesterday
morning for getting drunk and disturb
ing the peace by profanity and fighting
en a street car.
Policeman Wilson testified that he
heard swearing and obscene language,
saw defendants refuse to pay their
fare, and heard the entire disturbance.
"I had to club Castro before he'd stand
arrest," said the officer, "but Gallagher
was more peaceable."
Policeman Bailey corroborated the ev
idence of Officer Wilson as to Castro's
noisy conduct and resistance.
Defendant Castro testified that he was
employed on a boat. He drank wine,
get drunk and remembered no more of
the occurrence.
Gallagher was fineS $2.50, as it was
not shown that he was very noisy. Cas
trc/ was sentenced to jail for twenty-five
days.
Judge Henry said the officers did
right to club Castro, as such resistance
as he interposed could not be tolerated.
HOSPITAL PATIENTS.
They Would be Glad to Get More
Reading Matter.
A patient at the County Hospital
writes to the "Record-Union" request
ing that hotel proprietors and others
save their newspapers and magazines
and have them sent to the hospital
for the use of the patients there. He
says: "They would be a godsend to
many sufferers."
Persons who have magazines or pa
pers that they have read and do not
care to file away may have them taken
to the hospital by telephoning there.
The hospital wagon comes to town ev
ery day and will call for them.
Detainer Case With Side Branches.
In the case of forcible entry and de
tainer against A. H. McMurphy in the
Police Court yesterday morning, defend
ant demanded a jury, and the case was
set for 10 a. m. on Thursday. Attorney
Harry G. Soule, representing defendant,
contended that the holding of a trunk
by a lodging-house keeper for non-pay
ment of a bill was clearly a civil ac
tion.
THAT FOLSOM SHOOTING.
William Henry Surrender*, but
Marvin Curtis is at Large.
William Henry, the companion of
the man who shot andi wounded a color
ed man named Bert Hicks in Folsom on
Sunday night, called at Sheriff John
son's office yesterday morning and gave
himself up. He slipped by the officers
at Perkins about 3 o'clock yesterday
morning, on his biicycle, though Deputy
Hinters pursued him and fired several
shots at him.
Henry denies that he had anything
to do with the shooting of Hicks, and
says he was inside a saloon at the time
his companion, Marvin Curtis, fired the
shots. He says he ''shook" Curtis at
Willow Creek, a short distance this) side
of Folsom, and does not know where
the latter is.
Sheriff Johnson has several deputies
i out scouring the country in search of
i Curtis, and there is little doubt that
jhe wiiM soon be captured.
"PLUG" McCARTHY'S CASE.
Judge Henry Decides to Look Up
tke Prisoner's Record.
In the battery case against "Plug"
McCarthy in the City Justice Court
yesterday morning. Ah Wing swore that
he was assaulted on Saturday by the
defendant, who forcibly entered Wing's
laundry and struck him over the eye.
A black left eye was mute witness to
the fact that someone had struck the
witness.
The defandant was also charged with
disturbing the peace, in connection with
the same transaction, and to this he
pleaded guilty.
Sergeant Dolan testified that he was
resisted by McCarthy, whereupon it was
necessary to use a police club to sub
due the prisoner.
Sentence was postponed until Officer
Max Fisher could appear and testify as
to McCarthy's penitentiary record. At
Attorney Hart's request. Judge Henry
fixedt the baiL at $200, and the case was
postponed until to-day.
ANOTHER MURDER CASE.
John O'Neal on Trial for the Mur
der of W. D. Howard.
The trial of John O'Neal for the mur
der of William D. Howard at the
County Hospital, was begun yesterday
in the Superior Court before Judge
Hughes, but postponed till to-day after
examining nine jurors, it being found
that three of the trial jurors whoa*
names were called were locked up on
the Puttman jury.
Howard, who was the dining-room
steward at the hospital, was fatally
stabbed by O'Neal on the evening of
April 3d. The latter had been to the
'city, and returned to the hospital more
or less under the Influence of liquor.
The supper hour had passed, and words
passed between O'Neal and Howard on
the subject, followed by an affray.
O'Neal stabbed Howard, and the latter
died of his wounds.
It is understood that self-defense Will
be urged on behalf of the prisoner.
WOODS, THE "FLOATER."
Claims His Sentence for Vagrancy
Cannot be Enforced.
Judge Johnson partially heard yes
terday the application of George Woods,
a convicted vagrant, for discharge
under a writ of habeas corpus, but at
the District Attorney's request the case
was then put over till to-day.
Woods was convicted of vagrancy last
September and sentenced to the County
Jail, with the option of leaving the city
and staying away. After an absence of
' over seven months he returned to town
and was rearrested and sent to jail to
serve out his term.
1 His counsel claims that the City Jus
tice's Court has no authority to "ban
ish" a person from the city.
Death of Mrs. Margaret J. Dean.
Mrs. Margaret J. Dean, wife of Frank
L. Dean and daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
J. S. Jones, passed from earth on Fri
day, but the influence of her pure life
still remans. Mrs. Dean was brought
