SAN DIEGO HAS
MODEL CHARTER
COMMISSION FORM OF GOV=
ERNMENT ADOPTED
Members of Local Revision Committee
Present at City Club Luncheon
Are Addressed by
Mayor Conard
It was a gleeful occasion for Frank
G, Ktnbiy.Non, president of the <'ity
( lull, when Gram Conard, mayor of San
Diego, yesterday told thai organization
that his <ity had adopted the commis
sion form "i government by amendment
to its charter and not by submitting an
entirely new charter. Mr. Plnlayson
took occasion to call the attention of
;iny members of the charter n
commission who mi^iit i» pn lent to
this I;i< t.
Mr. Flntayson Is himself a member
of tii.- charter revision i ommli Blon and
a warm adherent of the comml
form of government, as exemplified In
in Moines and other clttes. He has
been strongly In favor of submitting
-nine form of the commission plan to
the people as a charter amendment,
and was much disappointed last Tues
day nlghi wh( n a committee ol the
commission reported against sulimit
tlng the commission plan as an amend
ment on the ground that it was too
radical and might be construed by the
courts as an entln ly new charter under
the guise of amendments.
Mayor Conard told the ( iiy i hlb how
much Letter San DlegO Is governed un
der the new form than It was under
the old form, when the government was
mi the same plan as is now the case In
i.os Angelea. Ban Diego now has five
commissioners and a mayor, where ii
usi il to have nine, coundlmi n, h mayor
and all the police, lire and other com
missions that help govern Los Angeles,
He showed the commission had saved
San Diego many thousands of dollars
in the less than a year that it has
bei nln power and Unit the 1 pie have
rec Ived more for their money than
was ever the case under the old
.system.
While the City club was deeply In
terested In the speaker, it was much
more so In the bulletins of proceedings
i at Washington read during the lunch
eon by President Klnlayson. when the
! bulletins proclaimed the overthrow oi"
speaker cannon the large banquet
room echoed and re-echoed with the en
thusiastic applause.
Pr (ding Mayor f'onnrd'a speech A.
a. Denlson, secretary of the chamber
Of commerce, made a few remarks In
which he declared that Oakland was
trying to work out Its destinies as Los
Angeles had done, and was patterning
after this city in the spirit of co
operatlon and "team work" that has
done so much to make Los Angeles
« hai it is.
Prof. fi. T.i. Bicdenback. principal of
the Berkeley high school, followed
Mayor Conard and told of the work-
Ing of the commission form of govern
ment in that city. Berkeley has one
feature In its charter which no other
commission city has adopted, its com
missioner of finance is ox-offlclo a
ni' mber Of tlm school hoard and con
trols tho finances of that department
of the city government an ho dors the
other departments. The four momhors
of the school hoard, the fivr> commis
sioners and the city auditor are the
only elected officials In Berkeley.
MISREPRESENT FACTS TO
SELL MOTOR CAR MIRRORS
Sergeant of Traffic Squad Claims Un
scrupulous Dealers Take Advant
age of Ordinance Language
Some firms selling the mirrors that
are placed on automobiles and other
vehicles to permit the driver to see
the traffic behind him are taking an
unfair advantage of the new traffic
ordinance, according to Sergeant But
ler, commanding the traffic squad.
Hundreds of .vehicles have been
equipped with these mirrors In the last
few days and some of the vehicles
were not required to have them under
the terms of the ordinance. The ordi
nance compels only those vehicles
which are covered In the rear in such
a way that the driver cannot see the
traffic behind him to have the mirrors
and whenever it is possible for the
driver to see behind through even a
small opening in the rear they are su
perfluous. Agents for these minors
Impressed on owners of all kinds
of vehicles thai they were required by
law and have been doing a landoffice
business through misrepresentations,

AWARDS FRASER
BEACH PROPERTY
COURT DECIDES MORTGAGE
MAY BE FORECLOSED
Breaking of Clause Restricting Use of
Firearms on Land No Cause for
Damages, Is Judicial' Opinion,
In an opinion handed down in the
"f A. it. PTaser against Qeo
Bentel et al., to foreclose a mortgage
on property In Ocean Park valued al
$60,000, by Judge James of the superior
courl yesterday, the latter decided In
favor of the plaintiff and held that a
provision restricting the use or fire
on ihe propertj. aa pro\ Ided for
in the deed, was no can; c for
ages as detracting trom Its value.
The property consisted of about two
I hundred lots in an advantugei I loca
tion al Ocean Park, and formerly tva ■■
I ov, veil by the Recreation Gun i lub.
B*or some years the latter held shool ■
Ing malehes on the land, and the Bound
of gunshots became so objectionable
to the neighborhood that when the club
o d the property a stipulation was
made In the deed v. inch forever i n -
\enie,i firearms trom being discharged
oil the place.
The club sold the property In June,
1904, to Fraser, with this understand
ing, and In selling a portion of the
land, known as the Crescent Bay tract,
to Bentel in 1906 the same restrictions
pro\ Ided lor. Bi ntel uaa to pay
ni three Installments, anil Issued a
mortgage to Fraser for the payment
of 140.000.
There was a balance of $15,000 due
August 20, 1908, ;md a new mortgage
was executed to secure payment,. It
was on a foreclosure of thli mortgage
thai action was brought by Fraser In
Judge James' court. BentSl put in a
counter claim for $211,000 damages,
which lie estimated the property had
sustained because of the restriction
preventing the discharge of firearms.
jud 1 ■■■ clsion contend
ed thai the defendant was fully aware
of the restriction when he first pur
chased the property, and that nothing
was heard from him resarding the de
atlon of the property's value in
that connection until the commence
mi nt of the suit to foreclose on the sec
ond mortgage.

FOLSOM UNPOPULAR
AS 'RESTING' PLACE
Larger Number of Felons Convicted
in Local Courts Prefer San
Quentin to Other State
Penitentiary
As a choice between two future resi
dences among the prisoner! sentenced
by the criminal courts of Log Angeles,
Ban Quentin is a big favorite over
ETolsom, as a stopping place, accord
Ing u> the record! of the local court*.
in nine cases nut of ten when a priso
ner is asked to which place he would
prefer to be taken, since he is com
pelled t.i accept "ne or the other, Ban
Quentin has a bl«j lead over Folsom.
The choice runs between freedom
and Folsom as tho tun opposite*. If
prisoner! cannot set freedom, they do
(heir best to get probation, according
to the cleverness of their attorney*, If
they cannot get probation they ask
to "stop at the San Quentin "hotel,"
and PolßOm is accepted when no other
objective point is left to them.
San Quentin, according- to convicts
in the county jail who have been to
"both places," is a small city in Itself,
Besides, most of the work is inside
and during cool and wet weather they
suffer less hardship. The (act that
the place is surrounded by walls also
results in a little easier discipline and
they are. not watched closely every
time they make a move.
In Folsom, they claim, they are com
pelled to work outside In all kinds of
weather and tho place is like a small
country village. Tho fact that there
are no high walls around the place, in
stead of attracting prisoners, sets them
against the place, because they arc
subject to a more Irksome discipline
and watchfulness In consequence.
In the county Jail the old-timers and
the new ones trade information and
soon become acquainted with condi-
ii<.ns. The result is that in the Los
leß criminal court, when a man
la sentenced, he Invariably prefers S:m
Quentin because it is "boosted ' by the
miits awaiting trial in the coun
ty jail.
