The success of the bond election hns been the means of making one man su premely happy; and this one is Judgo P. \V, Van Reynegom. The cause of thfl Judge's Joy lies in thf fact that by perse verance he accomplished what he started out to do In IS>2. This was the removal of the Jewish cemeteries In the Mission and the converting of the grounds Into a public park. Single handed and at first by himself he commenced to agitate, for the removal of the cemeteries. In this be was bitterly oppos.d for som»» time, but as he represented to his opponents the ad vantages it would be to the people residing in the vicinity of the cemeteries to havm them xemoved ho gained converts to his views and ultimately succeeded. His next Inception was to have the city purchase the two blocks of land upon which th« cemeteries stood and turn them into a public park. In this the Judge was also opposed, and! in ord»-r to kill any chances that he might have In accomplishing his purpose the "monkey ranch scheme" was sprung. This had the desired effect for the time being. But when Mayor i'heian conceived the panhandle Idea. Judgo Van Reyengom went to him and laid his idea of the Mis sion lot.« before him. The Mayor coin cided with the Judge's views and the scheme was Included In the Park bond Issue with the already known results. As soon as the result of the election was made public on the Mission road there was no end of the rejoicing among the mem bers of the families residing west of Islais Creek.
