Captain Jame* F. Oyster, chairman of
the arbitration committee that was
called upon In Washington. D. C, re
cently to consider differences between
employers and employes, states in his
. report:
There are Mien in erery community — men who
br tbe mere chance of taberlted wealth or fay
f«rtnsate speculation are reliered from the need
of daily toll- Tber* are others wbo from sheer
lazl&eas refuse to work and become, la tbe mala,
tfea traaps and bobot of society. Bat these two
clauses together Mtmerically represent such an
infinitesimal fwtnl>er compared with tbe creat
clasc of wcrkinr men and women that It would
be practically impossible to state Jn figures the
minnte percentage they bear to the number of
•odety at Urpe.
Aod while I tare not by any means sought to
tnaoter the labor problem, ac it Is called, or to
deteraiae tbe Jost relations which should exist
between capital and labor. I am convinced that
tbe true solution of all tbetse difficulties will be
far more speedily reached when men eTerywher<!
recognize that continniag la dally pursuits and
tie rleid of an taonert day's, labor is the essen
tial foundation for both Individual and united
unco***; The labor of . every man. artisan or
«o>en«. In whatever line «r occupation they may
be trained or follow, earns for every individual
the respect of tbe entire community.
We are a nation of laborers, and daily toil
everywhere Is honored and respected- When,
then, differences arise between employer and
employe, and whether affecting numbers large or
Mnsil. the continuance of every Individual at the
post of duty, with a fair eUtement of grievances
Ktsted in temperate language to the public, 7 there
will be found a Btronx community influence, far
more quickly developed to command the lighten
ing of the burden and the correction of \u25a0 the
wroegs than by any other course of conduct.
Tbe inconvenience and loss which the commu
nity euffer* by any strike, large or small, , bas Its
natural result* in largely withdrawing tbe favor*
able - eendmeat of eucn a community from tbe
cause of tbe striking workmen, even though it

Pavilion Erected at Corner
of Sixteenth for .
Musicians
A brass band .concert will .make Mis
sion and Sixteenth streets one of the
most attractive spots In the \u25a0 city, for

borhood have arranged for the musical
attraction, which will be repeated each

easily secured.. The bandstand was
built, and tonight will be the occasion
of the first concert.
"Whether you ride in a bus, or take a
car, or walk," say the merchants, "it
will be worth your while to gather with
the throng at Sixteenth and Mission

After reading their. complaint Judge
Sea-well ordered : the .defendants to ap
pear Monday morning atr 9:3o .o'clock
and show cause why : an injunction \u25a0re
straining the "city from levying ''the
tax recently approved by the super
visors and the mayor should not>4>e
issued.' \u25a0 ] .-'".'. '\u25a0 'V,*'.' : : ; ' '.--•'. \u25a0 -'-.
The complaint recites that "the super
visors threaten jto levy a . tax to raise
$8,836,700, the amount of the budget
for .the fiscal year which begins July
1, and objection is' made on J the* ground
that the proposed levy, exclusive of the
state tax and the tax to pay 'interest
and maintain sinking funds; -for :•:. the
bonded indebtedness of the . city . and
county and exclusive ot the tax for the
maintenance and improvement of parks,
squares and public parks, will exceed
the rate of Jl'on each $100 valuation
of property assessed and will be in vio
lation of section 11, chapter 1, article 3,
of the charter of : the city.
It will be v impossible, allege .the
plaintiffs, to segregate the items of: the
proposed levy in a way to protect tax
payerß ; , therefore, the , tax will - be / a
\u25a0lien on property arid a cloud upon~real
estate titles. The cost of the proposed
public utility, it Is declared," cannot be
paid out of the. annual revenues of the
city and county, and stress .is laid
upon the contention that the .voters
have never authorised the incurlng of
a bonded indebtedness for the purpose
of making the Geary street road a mu
nicipal property, but have twice refused
to authorize such indebtedness.
The' additional tax of 20 cents on the
$100 of valuation assessed, making a
total of $1.20, is directly attacked ori
the ground that as two members of the
board of supervisors were absent wheD
it was approved It did not receive the
unanimous vote required by section 13,
chapter 1, article 3, of the charter , relat
ing to provisions for emergency -or
great necessity. While James L. Gal
lagher is^ acting mayor, it: is alleged,
there can be no unanimous vote, and
therefore, the levy cannot be made
legal. , /
All the history of the various appro
priations for thb Geary street munici
pal road Is reviewed. In regard to the
estimate of cost of construction made
in May, 1905, when the board of works
presented figures totaling $667,595, it is
alleged that this estimate was based on
the erroneous assumption that the city
owned the tracks, rails and cable slots.
These things, contend the plaintiffs, be
long to the Geary Street, Park and
Ocean. railroad company, and are, worth
upward of $20,000. (i Incidentally, it; is
alleged that' changed f conditions: make
$1,200,000 a fair estimate of the cost of
constructing and completing the Geary
street road in accordance with the city's
plans.
The prayer of the complaint calls for,
not only a permanent injunction against
the defendants, but a decree, declaring '•
both the additional tax of 20 cents and
the budget appropriation of $720,000 for
the Geary street, road null . and. void.

Furuseth came'ln response to a-sub

He made a brief-statement to the ef
fect that he did not believe -he, had
been summoned in good-faith.: So far
as' he was personally concerned, he said,
he had no objection to "'_ testifying, but
in his capacity as secretary .of the
sailors' union he would avail himself of
his constitutional right. and decline to

. "Is that your only reason for refusing
to testify?" asked Dorsey.- -r* ' ;

that there • are other j : necessities \u25a0 : and

V Whereas, the board ; of ' superrtoors ' In '\u25a0 making

appropriated $720,000 '• for ' the * purpose of recon

In our opinion, should only^ be done, in casea of

that the reconstruction of the said Geary street

entire disapproTal of the abore addition to the
tax rate for such purpose and in part for the
following 'reasons: ..".x, . ;' ; \u25a0- ' -; ;'>
First — That | the | aboTe ' contemplated I Sppro
prlatlon is not for » a ' purpose of snch great
necessity or emergency as is . contempl^ed by
tbe. r charter and that; litigation .-would result If
the same be attempted to be . enforced, im
posing an expense ,\u25a0 upon . the ' city with tUe
dancT of lnvalida tins the wbolo hudfret.
Second — That so many crying; necessities .and
emergencies as contemplated by the "charter do
now exist and call for the expenditure of large
sums of money far y more than the construction
of. a municipal . railroad, ; howeter desirable : that
might be hi other \u25a0 circumstances, that: the inex
pediency of expending this great sum ! for the
lesser need Is apparent..- •These necessities and
emergencies - ran y be - specified -as follows : The
purchase and operation of flreboa ts ; the repair
of cisterns damaged; by the fire and the 'crea
tion .of new cisterns;, the taking of the first
steps looking to the- establishment of an
auxiliary water supply."' for the • protection of
the city; the Immediate need, recognized by
all, of ImproTlng the \u25a0 conditions \u25a0of the streets;
the absolute necessity .- of • fire engine houses In
newer parts of the city ; the Important need of
more scboolhouses^ the . necessity of immediate
repair of Important; public •\u25a0building*, .instead of
the payment of ] present hljth a rentals for tem
porary quarters : the : necessity of great outlay*
in the construction and, reconstruction of sewers.
Many other demands of more importance than
the establishment < of *\u25a0 a" street '•: railroad might
be mentioned, and it seems would immediately
occur to most -citizen*-, of --..tnls --city. The tax
payers here are expending orer a million. dollars
per annum iir fire insurance premiums In . excess
of what other cities similarly situated pay, and

j A Bit of Good News g
j We have had* a surprise in slore for you for
I several weeks-fa sale that in point of value ex- I
L»: ceeds anything we have ever offered — a sale *3
y that will interest every woman who admires 1
I and appreciates fine apparel, the particulars of j
which will appear in tomorrow*s Examiner and |
j Call By all means read of that j
h Our Heartiest Thanks
o We wish to express to the ladies of San Francisco c
and Oakland our most hearty thanks for the tre-
0 mendous response to the Waist Carnival which ends to- Q
| night We had intended to run the carnival at least g
I three weeks and purchased a quantity of waists which \u25a0
we thought would surely be sufficient for that length of
• f time. So great has been your response, however, that . «
1 we are compelled to withdraw the sale tonight. I
I The many expressions of delight, satisfaction and I
L^ surprise at our tremendous values were most gratifying, gJ$
f^v not only demonstrating the confidence the public have
I - in our announcements, but it clearly shows how our g
I values are appreciated. Great as have been the values |
! during this waist : carnival they fade into insignificance |
when compared with what we are announcing in to-^ j
• ; monow's papers;
