Interesting Report Submitted to the

- A ir.; : lea meeting was yesterday's con
j ference * it'tne new board of directors of the
Manufacturers' and ! Producers' Associa
vtion. ./Henry J. Crocker, third vice-presi
dent, occupied th? chair, there being pres
en£ Directors J . W. Kerr, J. P. Currier, A.
blarboro, M. Mci'lynn; L. R. Mead, sec
retary, F 33.. Dingle, assistant secretary,
and S. lacy, manager.
After the ro.ilcall the following report
from. Mr. was received:
P:o* Francisco; Cal « March 31. 1596.
:' To the Beard of. Directors, Manufacturers' and
Trodue Association— Gentlemen: The work
: . the association..; has been .engaged /in during
-the past under the control of the first
; board of directors has been fully outlined in
i:. first annual report of the. secretary which
has been submitted to all our members; inas
much as several plans for future work have
been left unfinished by the old "board, I deem
it my duty .to: call the attention of the new
. board to them. ■-■ ■
. . • The most important unfinished -work is that
,of malting arrangements for "holding of an
exposition of home products-. : . Owing to our
inability to secure the Mechanics' PavUHon for
-that purpose, and the great expense involved
in erecting a special. building, the old board
have felt disinclined to take any definite steps
in the matter. I am advised, "however, that
•ginee the election of a new board of directors
;;of the Mechanics' Institute, it is believed that
if. the matter was brought before them again
some arrangements Could be made by which
\ the two associations could combine in "holding
.an exposition of California products at the Pa
:vilion in the fall of this year. 1 would, there
fore, suggest that a: conference committee be
appointed for that purpose.
...The matter of the organization of "home
-products*.' clubs throughout the State has pro
gressed to that point where we can now com
' mence the work by organizing Club No. 1 it*
Oakland and Club No. 2 in Uakersfield, but it
remains for your board to authorize the' work
to be done. I have compiled a constitution
end by-laws suitable for such organizations,
and inasmuch as this association has been in
. vite! to send a delegation to Bafcersfield April
11 for the purpose of taking up the work there,
1 would suggest that your board appoint a spe
cial committee to pass upou the by-laws and
authorize the formation of these clubs. I beg
also to suggest that you appoint as a special
member oi this committee Mrs. IT. O. Trow
bridge of the Ebel Society of Oakland, through
whom we expect to inaugurate the work in
Alameda County, It will also be necessary to
appoint a delegation to proceed to Biikersneld
April 11, if it is. decided to organize a club
: there.- • .
' Among other unfinished business is that of
the revision of the hy-laws of the association,
the change in the board of directors causing a
Vacancy in the committee having the matter in
The adoption of a trademark to be used on
[ Ca.ifornia-uade . goods by members of this
r association has been frequently referred to,
has often been called lor, and was again spoken
*■: at our Annual meeting. It is believed by a
large number of persons that the Interests of
our members will be advanced and protected
by the use of a trademark, and I would there
fore suggest that the matter be taken up.
Another important subject referred to in the
secretary's annual report, and not vet acted
upon, is the introduction of textbook's in the
public schools for the education of the chil- I
dren in the advantages to be gained in the de
velopment of the natural resources of the
State and in patronizing home industries.
I would also beg leave to call your attention j
to the fact that a few months ago this associa
tion called the attention of Governor James i
Budd to the large importation ot prison-made
goods into this State, aud requested him to
t.JtffijJ.lr'S'KlTi Eri^Ttrrief^tr^rSs t. and inves
tigate the subject. We were assured, unoffi
cially, that our request would be complied
■with, but we have been recently advised that
the investigation has not yet been undertaken.
As It is a matter of such vital importance to
our manufacturers, this association should
take action upon it. Respectfully submitted,
B. H. Tacy, Manager.
Mr. Tacy report was accepted and its
recommendations considered seriatim. It
was decided to accept the invitation from
Bakersfield and send two delegates to that
town, the delegates to be named at some
date in the near future. Mr. Crocker
ordered the secretary to write to Bakers
field accepting the invitation, and mean
while to rind two members willing to re
spond thereto, their expenses to be paid
by the association.
; Messrs. Mead, Currier, Crocker, Sbar
boro and Mrs. Trowbridge were appointed
a committee to draw up by-laws for clubs
desirous of acting as auxiliaries to the
The matter of the adoption of a trade
mark was deferred until a larger number
of members were present.
= The proposed exposition of home prod
ucts then came up for discussion.
Mr. Mead suggested that a committee
be appointed for the purpose of attending
to the matter, and that the Mechanics'
Institute be notified of the appointment.
In view of the recent friction between, the
two organizations regarding the exposi
tion he was not in favor of the committee
visiting the institute.
"But we ought to meet them half-way,"
interposed Mr. Crocker mildly. .
"No, we ought not." rejoined Mead
hotly; "we remember what haDpened be
fore, and a burned child dreads the tire.''
However, Messrs. Sbarboro, McLaughlin
and Kerr, all being members of the Me
chanics' Institute, as well as pillars of the
Merchants' Association, were appointed
on the committee and promised to do
their best to prevent future misunder
The secretary was ordered to write to
his Excellency, the Governor, requesting
information as to the importation of con
vict-made goods into the State. He re
ported that he had already written to
Washington 'for information on the mat
ter, but as yet had received no reply.
Among the communications was one
from Miss Kate E. Whitaker, the cooking-
Echool authority, calling attention to an
article on California En an Eastern paper.
Miss Whitaker's first dealings with the
association commenced when she found
her name used as indorsing an Eastern
brand of yeast powder, and requested that
body to withdraw the forged indorsement.
Another communication, from Mrs.
Margaret Touchard, was ordered placed
on file. Mrs. Touchard was the moving
Epirit in the "Californian banquet," given
on the 16th of October last at the Cali
fornia Hotel. In her letter she said she
had taken three months in which to pre
pare for the banquet, but that it had not
been properly supported, and she had been
unable to meet the bills. Being threat
ened with suits at law she asked some
financial aid from the association.
Mr. Mead "said Mrs. Touchard had no
reason to ask the association' to foot the
"That's what I told her,", remarked Mr.
Crocker; "I was president of : the Half
Million Club at the time, and i warned
ber that the thing wouldn't pay."
"But I paid," interposed Mr. Sbarboro.
"I paid two good dollars for my share in
the banquet and went away unsatisfied.
There was an elaborate menu, but very
'-* We had better assure Mrs. Touchard
that, whatever we may do as individuals,
the cannot expect one cent from the asso
ciation as such," recommended Mr.' Mead,
and thus the matter rested.
Messrs. Davis, Mead and Bowers were
appointed a committee on ways and
means, and the members 'were about to
proceed to the appointment of an execu
tive . committee when Mr. Crocker* pro
tested. •■'.■-.
"It seems to me," he said, "that we are
becoming just a little rapid in" this thing
of appointing committees.. '.We had better,
wait until the president is present and we
have a lareer attendance of members, ".-'"j.
Mr. Crocker's view* was "vigorously cop

Exciting Row in the Meeting of
"> the City Hall Commis- v
; Will Be Advertised Thirty-Five Days
and Must Be Finished by r ,
January i. ..'■). 'ofc .'".'/
Each succeeding meeting of the City
Hall Commission for several weeks past
has been more stormy than the preceding"
one, and violent language has been re
sorted to by the members on several : occa
sions, but the climax was reached yester
The cause of the trouble was the pro
posed City Hall directory which the Mer
chants' Association desires put in'./! A
communication was received from the as
sociation relative to the matter, and Mr.
Creswell moved that it be placed on'
file. , , ; ;
Mayor Sutro opposed such action on ; the
ground that it would be discourteous, and
mentioned the fact that the project of hav
ing a directory had been broached several
months ago. . o , *;« " ■''
Auditor Broderick intimated ; that the
directory mentioned had been intended as
a job. out of which some one was to make
$1000. • . i"?.°°< ■
"Who had a job? You?" inquired the
'•No, you," shouted Broderick, "and a
man whom you said you paid out of your
own pocket." ; "
"This action on this communication is
discourteous," declared the Mayor. '•);. : \: )
"Until you are recognized as the Ches
terfield of the municipality we deny your
right to lecture us on courtesy."
"Have you seen these plans of the asso

The Mayor admitted that be had not. '• V;
"Then what do you know of; it?" he
asked. te&fflfpi. '".'' ':
••If you don't like it make a plan that
will suit you," said the Mayor.
"That "is exactly what we intend to do,"
said Creswell. . .
"I would like to know what the secret of
this opposition is. Is there anything be
hind the scenes?" demanded the Mayor.
"There may be in your office," replied
Broderick. - t
"1 want an explanation," shouted the
Mayor. "I have never had one. There is
some secret behind all this. You haven't
given any reason."
"The only plan yet suggested," said
Broderick, "was the one put before this
board by you, and I denounced it as a job
and a scheme." W**BM*iJSBBsS^B&
"There was a time," said Mr. Creswell,
very deliberately, 'when people were in
dicted for being common scolds, and it is a
pity that such a law is not in force now."
"There is a ring in this hall, and I be
lieve you belong to it," declared the Mayor.
"If you were not a fit subject for an in
sane asylum," said Creswell, "utterly
irresponsible and twenty years older than
I, I would-"
"It's the work of that scoundrel Hunt
ington and the oc'opus. The City Hall is
full of boodlers. You can't bully me."
"No one desires to."
"I am a square and honest man," said
the Mayor.':gMs9o6!"TC9B
"The Sutro tunnel job proved that," re
torted Creswell.
"It's a lie— a dirty lie shouted the
Mayor. "Tnat was all the work of Hunt
ington and his hirelings. It is a*- — lie."
Both Mr. Creswell and Mr. Broderick
took turns baiting the -Mayor until all
were at a white heat and talking at the
top of their lungs. When exhaustion
compelled them to call a halt Mr. Cres
well submitted the,' following - resolution,
which was adopted on the votes of Brod
erick and Creswell: " v
Resolved, That the Merchants' Association
or other association, corporation, : person or
persons having any plan of directories for
large buildings .be requested to submit the
same to the new City Hall Commissioners at
an early date. The commission having had
the question of a directory under considera
tion for some time will be pleased, in open
board, to receive suggestions from any one In
regard thereto, so that the Commissioners
might be advised of the different plans suit
able to the new City Hall before making a
selection. -
Architect Shea then submitted plans
and specifications for the new roof that is
to complete the building. He estimated
the cost at $300,000.
: It was decided to advertise for bids for
the work for thirty-five 'days and require
the successful competitor to finish the
roof by the first day of January" next.
The plans show tnat it is proposed to re
move the entire wooden roof and substi
tute one ; of steel. Architect Shea desig
nated the proposed structure as a hip-roof,
and explained that there would be an at
tic under, it fifteen feet in height. The
roof is to be surmounted by : a deck all
around the building, eight feet in width,
with patent sidewalk lights for the illumi
nation of the interior. The slanting sides
will be incased iin terra cotta, covered by
California slate. The roof plans also con
tain provision i; for , a ; system of . ventila
tion for the entire building. The dome
plans provide for. a mosaic floor on the
first story and .' marble floor above. :■ The
walls of the first floor are to be wainscoted
to a' height of twelve feet; with California
marble, and on the upper floors the marble
will be six feet in height. There is a cir
cular shaft thirty feet in diameter on one
side of \ the " dome "in which ' will be H con
structed a staircase running to the top >of
the dome. Provision is also made for an
elevator-shaft and an = inner/dome' of art
glass rising above the th rd floor. '"This
inner dome," said Shea, "will be a novelty.
It will be sixty-five feet in diameter— the
largest art glass dome in the country."
-i The ' architect < further ; stated i that . the
dome would contain forty new. rooms,* and
that they would be the choice apartments
of ■: the ! building.'; - _■ : - ..-...■

owners. .
.. "The Boston people started the mine,
issuing 100,000 shares of a par value of $1
each. They also went to work developing
the property. They succeeded so well that
in February they took out $17,500 in gold.
They have done fully as well in March, so
Mr. Sullivan, the manager, told me the
other day.
"The result has been so satisfactory that
the shares have gone up to $8 a share and
upward, making the valuation of the mine

Inspector Dockery and a Com
panion Go on a Milk-Drink
ing Raid.
The Waiter That Was Childlike and
Bland — Arrest of Several
Inspector Dockery has been orbing along
the ; milky way, during the past two days
and making tests in a novel manner. He
is his own lactometer and a glass of the
lacteal fluid purchased 1 and drank on cer
tain ' premises subjects ' the proprietor
thereof to a visitation from a law officer/. '
\ Recently the Board or Supervisors
passed an ordinance making it obligatory
on the part of hotel-keepers, restauranters
and grocery men to procure a milk license.
No charge would ;be made for .this" legal
permission, but one was placed upon the
sin of omission to procure the needful per
mit and that was misdemeanor. ":*v ; ;
s Tbe ; applications : for licenses ; failed - to
get in and the inspector went out Monday
to round them up. He went into the Pal
ace Hotel grillroom I with a brother official
and "ordered two glasses of milkl. They
were" unknown Vto .the. waiter, -.but: the
novelty of tne order almost paralyzed him.
They paid Tor and' drank: their" milk and
wrote Manager \J. C. Kirkpatrick's . name
in their inside pocketbooks. At the Occi
dental and ■- a number, of other caravan
saries i they ordered and drank milk until
they., thought they would ' never thirst for
milk again. ■"•.■;;,- ■..-...'
'^Before the couple reached the California
Hotel -General ' Warfield had 1 heard of : the
drinking raids » and posted % his -waiters to
make no I charges for the milk they con
sumed."" When ; the J two * guests \ tendered
payment they were surprised • to : find the
house at their disposal ana without money
and without price.

never sell de milk. : When gentlemen call
for it we never think o" charging; them.

was no help for it, so they captured a bill

foyer. " ' ' " ' ,:

to the City Hall for his license, but was

' Captain ' W. L. Merry, R. G. Sneath,
Hugh Craig," Charles * Nelson I and Captain
J. J?, chapman, representing the Chamber
of Commerce, waited upon • the Commis
sioners to see what could be done in the
matter of extending the belt railroad from
its present terminus .- to the Mail Dock.
Sneath strongly advocated the building of
the road and said that for the. want of it
San Francisco's imports by sea had not
increased" for four a years. According vto
him' all the profits are eaten up by cartage
< bills, and it is cheaper to move goods to;
Port Costa than! to"; the Southern Pacific
depot. He - said . that for want of a belt
road ' manufacturers . were moving to
Stockton, Antioch and Port Costa because
there they could secure better facilities. : !
•-.' "Well; what can we do -to give- you any
relief asked Commissioner Chadbourne.
"Extend the belt road south to the Mail
dock and bring the railroad and shipping
together," was the answer. '}■■'■::
It was pointed out that there was no ap
propriation with which to extend the sea
• wall, and until that was done the belt road
could not be built. . - r '.
/ Sneath suggested the building of the
road on piles, but Chief Engineer Holmes
said such an' idea was impracticable, as
there would be no place for switches and
no yards. '' '
Captain* Merry said it' was absolutely
necessary to bring the shipping and the
railroads together. \lf ' this was done mil
lions would be saved to the mercantile
community every year. Hugh Craig said
that there would be no difficulty in build
ing the remaining 3200 feet of road north
of Market, and the only difficulty would
be the 4800 feet from Market street south to
the Mail dock. "If," said, he, "the board
has not the money, the Chamber of Com
merce will undertake to raise it."
Sal It was ; finally decided to allow Chief
Engineer Holmes to make out a list of the
difficulties. in the way of extending the
road and the Chamber of Commerce will
point out the manner" in which they can
be overcome if possible. .!.-.
;!- President. Colnon refused to sign the bill
of $97 50 for water sent in by" Goodall,
Perkins & Co. „ : He said it was excessive,
and argued that dredgers and pile drivers
were not ."shipping." The matter ; was
referred to the board's 5 attorney. A bill
for.water supplied to fishermen was paid
after jj argument,!; but • Goodall," | Perkins &
Co. were notified that no more bills would
3 be ; honored. ;-. Commissioner Cole made a
vigorous protest against the discontinuing
of the service, but he was overruled. ■ -"
