ANJBu'EAlBJBlfi.es KEIIUILDINU I'li-VN AUDITED. San Francisco To llo Among World's Model Cities. The reconstruction committee of $an Francisco has adopted the Burnham plan of rebuilding the city. Months ago, then, plotting only to make the best of the city that was, San Francisco commissioned Daniel H. Burnham of Chicago to plan its superficial future. Mr. Burnham is well known as "the builder of cities." He laid out the "White City" at Chicago. He was one of the four architects who devised the scheme of municipal adornment now being followed at Washington. In January, 1904, a band of earnest, ambitious Cali fornians got together and formed an "association for the improve and adornment of San Fra ncisco." Ex-Mayor Phclan, a wealthy man, who made the "city beautiful" a good deal of a hobby during his term at the city hall, was made president. The association effected alliance with the outdoor art league and other local societies at work in the same field, got money conces sions from the city government, and called for Mr. Burnham. HOW FIRK AND UARTHQUAKIS HKLPBD. He contributed service of consul tation. For his assistant, Mr. Ben net, and his draftsmen, a bungblow was built on the slopes of the Twin Peaks, where they could constantly look out over the pauorama of city and bay and mountain. The plans were finished. They not been approved yet by the city, but it was felt that they would be, and that, bit by bit as the people could afford it, they .would be woven into reality. The earthquake has left some serious obstacles how serious cannot be told until San Francisco's worth iu the eyes of capital as a place of big undertakings is deter mined. But it has moved others. Chinatown was one of them. It has been felt for years that somehow, sometime, Chinatown would have to go. But the Chinese have held fast to their huddle. Much of it was owned by them. Finally a stock c6mpany was for med for the building of a Chinese city at Hunter's point, on the bay shore south of San Francisco, and the conversion of the present China town into a modern business dis trict of wide streets and improved grades. It was a big job that this company undertook and little head way had been made. But presto! this not all malignant fire wipes Chinatown off the earth, and the mayor, of San Francisco has announ ced that the Chinese will hereafter be segregated at this very Hunter's point spot to which they were, the oretically consigned some time ago. TIIK BURNHAM I'l.AN. The nucleus of the Burnham plan is what he calls the "civic center." Washington's civic center is the capitol; San Francisco's is to be iu the neighborhood of the now wrecked city hall. This is to be jthe hub 0 the town, from which great streets will radiate, with sub centers subordinate hubs in vari ous parts of the city. hc boulevard systsm of Paris is to be taken as a general model. A great encircling boulevard, giving access to all centers of the city without the necessity of passing through the congested districts, is the main feature of the plan. pan Francisco is built on a peninsula, with water ,on three sides. It is planned to ,make the engirdling boulevard a broad, dignified and continuous driveway, skirting the water's edge. Within this ring it is plan ned to have a number of smaller concentric rings, separated by boulevards. The smallest of these rings, inclosing the civic center that part of the 'city which plays the most important part in civic life is located at or near the geographical center. The shape of the rings necessarily must be so made us to conform to the shape of the city. A WIIKKl, OK I'INU THOROUGHKARKS From the inner circuit boulevard diagonal arteries are. to be run to every section af,tlie, city, and to.thei surroundiug country, They are to traverse iu succession the diminish uig circuit boulevards and finally reach the center or group of centers, thus forming continuous streets reaching from one side of the city to the other. Once the western section of the city has been built up, the only opening for further development beyond the present boundaries will be toward the south. As far as land com munication goes there are only three routes to the southern coun try and the circulation of supplies from the city to the suburbs and country beyond. It is intended to make the pro posed Mission boulevard and its continuation, the Camiuo Real, the the backbone of the system. It has been proposed to build it on dimen sions corresponding to its fututc importance. The civic center is intended to be one of administra tion, education, amusement and of education of the finer order. With the subcentcrs the distribution of groups of buildings will be as fol lows: The civic center is to contain the city hall, court of justice, custom house, appraisers' building, state building, government build ing and postoffice. Plan? have been made for another .group of build ings, public or private, ot monu mental character and of great civic interest relating to matters literary, musical, expositional, professional and religious. Some of these prob ably will be the library, opera house, concert hall, municipal theater, academy of art, technical and industrial school, museum of art, museum of natural history, academy of music, exhibition hall and assembly hall. It has been planned that these buildings, placed in economic rela tion, shall face on the avenue form ing the. perimeter of distribution, and on the radial arteries within, particularly on public places form ed by their intersections. The plans include extensive settings on all sides, contributing to public rest and recreation, and adapted to. fetes, celebrations etc. It has been considered that by beiug removed from the rush of bnsiness activity, these buildings will gain in repose and strengthen the public's sensibi lity of the dignity and responsibi lity, of citizenship. On the chief radial, line to this place will be placed the union, railway station, forming a vestibule to the heart of the city. It is intended that thea ters aud other places of amusement shall be grouped on some one large street near the center with plenty of room for vehicles coming and going. TUN MII.KSOF WATKR KRONT. The docks, yharves and freight houses naturally group on the vater front. The originators of the plan intend that the water front district shall be so arranged as to admit of indefinite expansion and connected with a complete system of warehouses served on one hand by railroad tracks or canals and oil the other by broad roadways. TRANSPORTATION UNDERGROUND. , Rapid underground transit and a traffic tunnel' through Ashbury Hiehts are other features of the ,pjan. It is prosposed that the main diagonal arteries of the city shall be provided with underground transportation, and that under ground loops shall be excavated under the centers. The financial center is to comprise banks, ex changes, insurance buildings and general office structures. It ?s planned to have it easily accessible from the wholesale and retail quar ter and also from the administrative center. It may be a financial forum, from th.e center of which. it may be practicable to exclude vehi cles. In the form pf a court or series of courts it probably will be fronted with the most frequented and important institutions. The new city has been so planned as to make it one of the easiest cities iu the world to get around in.
