drew the conclusion that under the pres
ent ordinance the consumers were paying
$115,083 90 more to the company than under
the ordinance of the preceding fiscal year.
Braunhart desired to know why two divi
dends had been passed by the company
notwithstanding that the receipts had
largely increased. * Attorney Kellogg said
that information on the point would be
given by Pelham Ames, the secretary, as
soon as. he recovers from an illness.
Numerous questions were propounded by
members of the board regarding the items
charged to operating expenses which
amounted to $454,013 77. Secretary Howard
explained in detail the specific items and
Braunhart took exception to a charge of
$765 45 for a . man to watch the Portola

OENEBAL EXPENSES.
Secretary Howard stated that the Item
of $11,698 97 for general expenses included
advertising and to pay for meetings of the
trustees of the company. Braunhart point
ed out that the company's statement
showed that but $97 « was spent for ad
vertising and asked if the difference rep
resented the cost of trustees' meetings.
Howard promised to furnish an Itemized
statement of the expenses.
Regarding the item of legal expenses,
$23,098 53. of which W. F. Herrin received
$10,000. Braunhart desired to know if Her
rin or Attorney M. B. KellogK is engaged
in litigation concerning lands, reservoir
sites or watersheds which are not in act
ual u$e for supplying water. Kellogg said
that he and Herrin had no connection
with such litigation. Kellogg said he was
the attorney of the Suburban Water Com
pany prior to its absorption by the Spring
Valley Water Company, but he had never
examined a title for the first named com
pany. Braunhart called attention to the
employment of a man as land agent at
$275 per month and held that the item
should not be charged to operating ex
penses. Exception was also taken to a
charge of $150 to pay a man who collects
land rents. Howard said that none of
Bchussler's. salary was charged to con
struction account, although his services
were In demand in the building of new
improvements.
The petition of Charlei Wesley Reed
that he be allowed to ask certain ques
tions of the Spring Valley Company at the
next meeting was granted.
Felix Lengfeld filed a report on his
analyses of water taken from North and

strongly in favor of the palatabillty of the

American standards for reservoir water.

Recommendation to Save Life.
Ah Nong is a farmer, and has a small
ranch near Antioch. He came to this city
a few days ago to spend the China New
Year's with his family. He went into the
family joss house about 10 o'clock to call
a curse upon the Hop Sing men. While
Ah Nong stood before the altar three
men of tho Hop Sing Society suddenly en
tered the room, and while two held the
door closed the thirti attacked Ah Nong.
Strangely enough the assailant did not
fire immediately, but. advancing upon Ah
Nong, he dealt his victim two Blows with
the butt of his revolver, one upon the left
arm and a second upon the right side of
the* head. A3 Ah Nong staggered back
ward the assailant turned his weapon
and fired three shots in rapid succession.
One of the shots missed, but a second
struck the victim in the right shoulder
blade, and ranged downward, lodging be
tween the third and fourth ribs. Tho
third shot took effect In the right breast
Ah Wong, a Sen Suey Yeng man, is the
latest victim of the Hop Sings. He was
shot and seriously wounded yesterday
afternoon at 1:15 in the Nong family joss
house, at 1018 Stockton street.
TrIE battle which is now waging in
this city between the Hop Sing
and Sen Suey Yengr tongs promis
es to be a bloody and lasting one,
and it is probable that a number
of Chinamen will be killed before a truce
can be made.
Ivy's Valentine Partv.
Ivy Chapter of the Ordef of the Eastern
Star gave a valentine party' in Golden Gate
Hall last night. There was a large number
of members and visitors from other chan
ten, who enjoyed a most pleasant even
ing of dancing under the direction of th
omcers of the chapter. r>urin K the grand
march each participant was -given a
sealed and numbered valentine. The ladles
were given' Cupid's missive having num
bers correspbnding to those Issued to lh e
gentlemen and they were required to hunt
for. the one' having the number corre
sponding to theirs and they then became
partners for the evening. During the in
termission a fine collation was served.
Detectives McMahon and Ed. Gibson
successfully captured tho two Chinamen,
Ju Wye,' alias Ju Louie, and Wong Din,
who are suspected of shooting Ong
Chung, the Chinese barber, at 10S Waver
ly place, January 18. Ong Chung identi
fied the two men as his assailants on that
day, and they were booked at the Hall
of Justice on a charge of assault to mur

and ranged upward, passing out at the
base of the neck on the right side.
The victim was removed to the Central
Emergency Hospital, where Dr. Arm
lstead successfully removed a large piece
of the and extracted the
bullet from between the ribs.
Detective McMahon and a number of
other officers were in the vicinity at the
time of the shooting and heard the sound
of the shots. They immediately rushed
to the scene, but the assailants had made
their escape through the hall and over
the roof of an adjoining house.
Ah Nong stated that he did not know
the names of his assailants, but they
were all Hop Sing men and he thought
he would be able to identify them.
The. two tongs have been at war since
the. shooting of Wong Ah Dong, a Hop
Sing man. Last Monday the score was
balanced by the shooting: and killing of
Chew Chung Yet, a Sen Suey Yeng man.
Eut the shooting of Ah Nong again de
mands the life of another Hop Sing man,
and more shooting is hourly expected in
Chinatown. ' , ,

-PARIS,- Feb. 10.— The lawyers for the
various parties interested in the estate of
Charles L. Fair and his wife, , who were
killed In an automobile accident In France,
are reticent about the latest suit brought
by relatives' of Mrs. Fair to have the
agreement made* some time ago set aside
because, it is claimed. Fair died before
his wife and therefore she Inherited his
ektate. It is learned from a trustworthy
source, however, that Dr. Perrlquet, who
was called at : the time of . the accident,
and keepers of the lodge at Pacy-sur-
Kure, declare Mrs. Fair outlived her hus
band by half an hour. Two other per
sons who are now In Paris are of similar
opinion. This makes five wltnessea in all
m favor of th* latest contention of the
relatives of Mrs. Fair. .
THE DOCTOR'S STATEMENT.
Zeigfeld says Fair was arranging at the
time of his death to build him theaters in
this city and New: York. "^i../
F. Zeigfeld Jr., husband of Anna Held,
now performing with her "Sadie girls"
at the Columbia, came near going on
the last ride ever taken by Mr. and Mrs.
Charles L. Fair. A desire for a little more
sleep saved him from going along and
perhaps meeting death with his friends.
Mr. Zeigfeld says:
I crossed from New Tork with Mr. and Mrs.
Fair and went with them to the Hotel Rltz in
Paris. Fournler came there and wanted to sell
Mr. Fair a new automobile. .
"I have all the machines I want, said Mr.
Fair
"•This Is a new Mercedes," said Fournler,
"and I want you to try It." "V;"'^ , 7
"I come over here, every year, said fair,
"and buy a new machine, and when I Ket It to
San Francisco it's no good. I don't want any
more.". . ¦""-/' '¦' ~S' "*
Tournier Induced him to try the one he had
and Fair, when ha got back, promptly bought
it for 70,000 francs. We went out riding with
It in the Park and that very day ran ln»o and
smashed another machine. Mrs. Fair said:
"Charley,- you'll always have bad luck with
that machine." .
We all went to Trouville and the Fairs made
several trios to Paris with the new automo
bile. The night before the fatal accident we
all attended a social function and stayed up
until 4 o'clock the following; morning. Mrs.
Fair Insisted on Charley going with her to
Paris the next day, ho she could try on some
dresses. They were s^t on my going, but I
was- too sleepy and my life was saved
• 1 hastened to the scene of tho accident, but
neither myself nor any other friends of the
deceased were allowed to take charge of the
bodies nor, In fact, to go near them. Mrs.
Oelrichs telegraphed to the proprietor of the
Hotel Rltz to take charge of all the effects of
h*r dead brother Rnd sister-in-law in their
r£ims at that hotel. The American Consul
sealed and locked the room later on. I don t
know who may have, entered it in the mean
1 Tif'waa the general impression that when the
crash occurred Mrs. Fair grabbed hold of her
husband and that she still clunff to him when
they were thrown out.
ZEIGFELD JUST ESCAPES.
A. question of jurisdiction. Charles L.
Fair and his wife being residents of San
Francisco at the time they were killed,
may be raised and there may be a ques
tion concerning the money already paid
in settlement. It "is -said that much of
this has already gone the way of ducats
easily obtained. -,;•••
W. K. Vanderbilt Jr., who married Vir
ginia Fair and was the brother-in-law of.
Charles L. Fair, Is expected In San Fran
cisco in' a few days. Affairs here in con
nection with the Charles U. Fair estate
will probably receive some «f his at
tention. „ ' "'„ :r * v }
. Joseph Harvey and Charles !•. Neal,
who helped arrange the settlement; Reu
ben H. LJoyd, attorney for the Fair es
tate, and Aylett R. Cotton, who repre
sented Mrs. Nelson and her sons in the
compromise, all say the Nelsons knew the
facts concerning the deatns and the es
tate, and that they seemed entirely satis
fled with what they got. They signed an
agreement of satisfaction and, it is said,
this can only be set aside on the grounds
that it was obtained through fraud and
deceit.
A dispatch from New York states that
great difficulty is being experienced in
serving the papers in the suit on Mrs.
Oelrlchs.
W. K. VANDERBH/T JR. COMING.
The new suit cannot In any way affect
fees already paid to those who negotiated
the settlement and those who were paltl
handsome amounts for this work, are in
no way barred from selling their services
again, now that the matter has been re
opened, and getting another dip into the
coffers of gold. ¦
The latest story from Paris Is that the
doctor, who was called at the time of
the accident says Mrs. Fair outlived her
husband half an, hour and that there are
now five witnesses in'all who will testify
that he died first.
Former Captain of Detectives Seymour
of this city, who was pent to Paris by
the Fair heirs to make an Investigation,
declares he has positive proof that the
wife died first.
In view of the fact that Sirs. Xelson
and her three soua, mother and brothers
of the late Mrs. Charles L. Fair, seemed
thoroughly satisfied with the settlement
made those who arranged it were much
surprised at the announcement that suit
had been instituted by the Nelsons. Those
who negotiated the compromise seem of
the opinion that a private company has
been formed to back the Nelsons in the
expensive litigation that must ensue.
There are some fat fees in prospect for
lawyers, both here and in New York,
and it is said that the sigh of disappoint
ment which escaped a number of local
attorneys when an agreement was reach
ed and a 1 long period of litigation seem
ingly avoided has jjiven way to gleeful
anticipations of further inroads into the
Fair strong box.
Airs. Nelson, who is lying ill at the
home of her daughter, Mrs. Laura Leon
ard, at Vernon, N. J., is progressing to
ward recovery. The old lady says she
h»s given away $10O,<XK> of the $125,000 she
received. This -will make it impossible
for her to pay into, court the amount
given her in case she is called upon to
do so. i
The question of which of the two died
first in. the automobile accident in France
that ended the lives of Charles L. Fair
and his wife will be the principal point
of battle If the suit cf Mrs. Fair's rela
tives for a larger share of the millions
left by her husband is brought to trial In
New York.
Tj,' EECEIPTS FROM RENTS.
George E. Booker, bookkeeper of the
j company, was the first witness examined
and gave figures showing the half-yearly
receipts from water rents from July 1,
1900, to December 31, 1902, which aggregat
ed $501,907 06.- 1785,425 23, $848,850 22, $854.
722 14 and $&98.657 32. The receipts for bills
against the city for the same period
amounted to $112,811 27, $110,693 01, $83.1S5 $$,
58 and $84,647 18. The rents from the
building owned by the company aggregate
$22,500 for each half year. Booker estimat
ed that the water rents from January 1,
1903, to June 30, l?03, would reach $920,000;
receipts from city bills, $67,000, and rents
from company's building, $20,000, or a total
-cf $1,007,000.
Supervisor D'Ancona, who* conducted a
With complete data at his command the
City Engineer values the system, including: .all
rlxhts. lands and works at $4,700,4S3, or
?S.'i«,S21 07 less than the actual cost. Thts
system challenges any similar works in the
country for appropriateness and adaptability
of design and for substantiality of construc
tion, and it Is evident that the intrinsic value
of the thus combined and developed proper
ties and rights Is far in excess of what they
hav<» cost. The Alameda. Creek system ha*
been estimated below • its Intrinsic value
by many millions of dollars. • '
The City Kngineer quotes in his lat« report
the 4S90 acres of land adjoining the Calaveras
reservoir at $51 per acre or $249,696. yet his
estimate of the same property in his report
of last year was . $005.7H0 or a decrease of
$S0«.0e4. The total undervaluations made by
the City Kngineerv amount to $4,167,800 of
which Jl,080.0C0 la undervaluations of ' the
water rights" to the peninsular system.'
The City Kngiri»er "estimated the value of
tho Spring- Valley Water Company's works at
$2S,C24,:i$U. Adding to this sum the total of
undervaluations — $4,107,800 — we have a total
value of $32,192,1£9. which sum does not by
far include the real and intrinsic value ht the
res-^-voir sites, watersheds and rights of the
Alameda Creek system.
We have given the Board of Works every
facility to get at the cost of the works, and
it is not the fault of the company if the City
Kngineer again in/ his estimate not only en
tirely omits important works Jn constant uss.
the actual cost of much of the peninsular sys
tem and also in valuing the properties
and rights of the Alameda Creek system much
below the actual cash cost. An extract from
our books showing the cash cost of the Ala
meda Creek system at $5,537,304 07 up to
January 1, 1903, was furnished the board.
\ FIGURES AEE TOO LOW.
Very Httla attention was paid by th« Board
or bupervisors to our protest last year re
garding these ominiiona and undervaluations
and the result of the reductton of rates was a
serious loss to the company in that the stock
holders lost three months' interest out of
twelve months in 1901, while during 1902 the
hydrant rates having been slightly raised and
domestic water Bales having somewhat in
creased, the stockholders lost two months' In
terest.
The first business to come before the
Board of Supervisors in Its investigation
of the operations of the Spring "Valley
Water Company last night preliminary to
the fixing of water rates was the reading
of a statement by Chief Engineer Schuss
ler of the company, calling attention to
the omissions and undervaluations con
tained In the report of City . Engineer
Grunsky appraising- the property owned
by the corporation. Schussler says in his
statement:
