Attorneys for Estranged Couple De
cide Not to Retry Case in
SUBMIT FINK EVIDENCE
FOR JUDGE TO PERUSE
Call It sentiment if you wish; it is a senti
ment that depresses the value of property
and turns residents away from that* part of
the city. A garbage crematory, is not a senti
ment, but as suggested by one of our citizens
the other night. It Is more like a boll than
anything else and the best place to have it
is on the other fellow.
If I am elected to serve as a Councilman
from the Second Ward I Fhall deem it an
honor to bo part of an administration headed
by Warren Olney. I have known him per
sonally for years and have the -highest re
gard for his ability and his character. The
attack which th« San. .Francisco Kxamioer is
now making upon him.,- if it. should be noticed
at all, should be characterized as ridiculous.
HIGHLY PRAISES OLNEY.
When such a proposition is put firmly this
insolent corporation will be brought to its
knees, because it knows what competition
means among buyers who hate them for the
exactions of the past. I should oppose paying
them one cent more than the cost of building
our own system, and my preference would
be in favor of our own system even if it cost
more. Our citizens remember the extortions
they have been subjected to and they will
back us up In an effort to build our own
water system even if we shall pay more than
the price asked for a second-band plant. •
I am In favor of good streets, good sewers
and public improvements. I recognize that
this is a fiscal problem, but I believe that
when the Councilmen show themselves to be
worthy of ' the trust which they are called
upon to execute the people, will vote for a
bond Issue, thus placing in the Council's hands
money for carryinsr out these Improvements.
There is sufficient civic patriotism among the
people to Justify the hope that they will spare
no expense in making Oakland a beautiful
modern city. They do demand, as they have
a right to do, that the money raised by a
bond Issue shall not I be spent dishonestly.
They want no second-hand water plants at
first-hand prices; no public improvements that
are the product of Incompetency and venality.
My friends and neighbors of the Second Ward
feel aggrieved at the location In their midst
of a RarLageyrematory. Can any disinterested
citizen blame them? Ask yourselves the ques
tion whether, you would like to have a cre
matory near your home. Their homes are as
dear to them is yours are to you. I care not
for arguments made as to the cleanliness of a
crematory. Cemeteries are clean. The Oak
land Cemetery is one of the most' beautiful
spots In the city, and yet we live as far
away from It as we can.
HATED FOR EXACTIONS.
The most Important question before the
people in this campaign Is the water question,
and upon that I have no hesitation in ex
pressing myself positively. The people should
know how candidates for election stand upon
that question. I am in favor of the municipal
ownership of a water supply and a water
plant. It may be Justly claimed that municipal
ownership Is a vague expression— that' It Is
a rather large vehicle In which all candidates
can rt.le. Therefora I am willing to define*
particularly what I mean by municipal owner
ship. I do not mean the purchase of the
Contra Costa water plant at an arbitrary valu
ation fixed by them. I do not mean that we
should pay seven million or six million or five
million or four and a half million dollars for
a plant which hag been appraised by our own
engineers at not to exceed four million dol
lars; especially with the report of our special
committee before us that fixes the cost of
an Independent water system at not to ex
ceed three and a half million dollars.
I should so at that question as I should
handle a similar matter in my private busi
ness. We should have our engineers state
first what the Contra Costa plant Is worth
as it stands to-day, and second, what it would
cost us to build an independent water dis
tributing system. With these figures before
us I should state the price which we would
pay the Contra Ccsta Water Company for Its
plant and I should say to them distinctly,
"'You may take this price or leave it alone.
If you do not take it we shall build our own
plant and ccgupete with you." i
FIRM ON WATER QUESTION.
When Albert E. Elliott, the Municipal
I.eaguo and Republican candidate for
Councilman for the Second Ward, was
called upon he was enthusiastically re
t'oived. He denounced the water com
pany for its selfiph attitude and corrup
tion methods and for unwarranted
and untruthful attacks upon Warren Ol
ney. He was enthusiastically applauded.
Mr. Elliott said:
the Niles Cone. Do you know that the Nll»s
Cone M>pj>lles half of Oakland, bpsklfs supply
ing San Francisco with l.'.OOO.fiOO gallons a
day? We need a clioap supply of water and we
will got it, and it won't cost as much as bread,
I am glad the time has come when we can
look beyond and see the prospect of a munici
pal water supply. The Contra Costa corpora
tion is now furnishing us with the cheapest
kind of water— that is. In quality. It is not fit
to drink. It is Improperly filtered, and Dingce
doeim # t care whether it is or not.
The system is inadequate for fire protection.
We don't want Its plant. , It Is worn out and
antiquated. We want nrst*to find a good sup
ply and then build a system that amounts to
something. We want to go carefully, too, for
tf we don't the Contra Costa Company will be
buying, up all the available supplies. It d"td
that when tnme engineer suggested buying the
Pinole source. I am glad that when the com
mittee of five selected the Nllcs Cone for a
supply It took the precaution to get options on
Home properties. There's lots of water there.
Krom water company .sources there is ridicule
for the committee of live for recommending
R. H. E. Espey, candidate for City^At
torney, said In part:
NOT FIT TO DRINK.
The meeting was the first held by the
Municipal League In the Second Ward,
"en O. Johnson, one of the active men
of the ward, was chairman and called
the meeting to order and made a brief
Introductory speech. The Bpeechmaklng
found its inspiration In- the 'demand for
clean government, freed from the domina
tion of the Contra Costa Water Company.
The vice presidents were George W. Dor
nin,' J. A. Morrow, Mark Thomas, A. H.
Pratt, E. H. Lake, C. K. Marshall, R.
B. Gaylord, John Gilbertson, J. E. Far
num, Maurice J. Hyde, F. W. Gartner,
O. L. Knowles, Montell Taylor, N. P. J.
Herby, H. E. Wharton. Enoch Hughes,
M. K. Miller and H. J. Lackey.
You all know the subsequent history — that
the people of Oakland by private subscription
raised the sum of nearly $5000 to pay the nec
essary expenses, and then more than 1500 tax
payers Blgned a petition to the committee to
go ahead with its investigations. That com
mittee has made a report, and It is before
you, and you know from it that there is an
abundant eupply of water accessible to Oak
land which may be obtained and that we are
under no necessity of buyinr the Contra Costa
Water Company's plant unless we can cct it at
reasonable and fair terms.
ABUNDANT WATER SUPPLY.
Do you nuppo*e that the water supply com
mittee would have been dismissed if the powers
that be had not become convinced that the
committee really intended to perform its duty
and make a genuine investigation? Do you
believe that committee would have been dis
missed if the powers that be had felt satisfied
that the committee could not find any other
source of water eupply sav* that furnislred by
the Contra Costa Water Company? In other
words, if thpre had been any confidence felt
that there was not at hand as good or a better
supply than that furnished by the Contra Costa
Water Company, the money to make the in
vestigation would have been supplied to the
committee by the City Council. No. it was be
cause It was* felt that there were other sources
of supply and that the committee would so re
port that summary action was taken to remove
thl* committee and prevent It from making an
BLAMES WATEH COMPANY.
"Whenever you hear a proposition that the
matter of the valuation of the Contra Costa
Water Company's plant should tx* submitted
to a board of ensinftr* and the city of Oak
land should buy the plant you may be gurft
that that idea came originally from the water
company. The party who mak?s it may not
be a conscioris Instrument of that corporation,
but all the same the idea comes from it. You
know It is an old proverb not to do what your
enemy wants you to do. It is a proverb found
ed on experience, and surely the experience of
Oakland warns us not to agree In this matter
to what the Contra Costa Water Company de
sires us to do.
Tnat is what Warren Olnry, candidate
for Mayor, declared to-nipht at Mlltofl
Hall, where he was greeted and applaud
ed by an auditorium full to overflowing
with Municipal Leaguers of the . Second
Ward. Continuing he said:

The fight has awakened much Interest
In the Twenty-third avenue district, he
cause it has aroused all of the former
day antagonisms, when saloon and anti
saloon partisans fairly swamped the City
Council with petitions and protests and
kept the Police Department busy gather
ing evidence ag:t!nst Illicit liquor sellers.
The issue was made at laat night h
meetins of the City Council, when in th«»
face of the protest Chairman Boyer of
the License Committee attempted to fore*
the license through. Councilman Wallaio
called attention to the statement that
•lurgensen's application was not in legal
form, that one of the signers was not *
resident of the district and that eighty
seven business men had entered their ob.
JectJon to the opening of another saloon
oh Twenty-third avenue.
The * reputation of Jurgensen's former
place of business at the Brooklyn Hotel
was attacked by Councilman Wallace.
who demanded that the application

How far does that paper suppose the credulitj
