Harbor Commissioners Will Compel Hay and
Lumber Dealers to Move Their Freight
The campaign of the harbor commis
sioners for clear wharves Is being
w-aKed earnestly. Freight not moved
will be charged for while on the dock
and after a certain short interval will
he warehoused at the expense of the
owner. For «ome years the lumber
men have been allowed to use the
•wharves as lumber yards. The hay
men ar« taking longer than anybody
rise to realize that the new board is
•n .earnest and some trouble is expected
before they are brought Into line. At
yesterday's meeting of the board Presi
dent Stafford announced that the state
riid not want the extra t wharfage, but
that it did want the space. The work
of tearing down old wharves' and build
ing jaew ones restricts the available
space, to a considerable extent, and to
fc»it the most good out of the area and
jrtve everybody an equal Bhow sum

wharves. . » ;:
The Santa Fe and the Key Route
have exchanged slips and waiting
rooms at the ferry depot and -will re

missioners ordered the companies to
make the change, and the order will
bo obeyed. .

The American-Hawaiian steamship
company was denied the privilege of
operating a roller for straightening
ir.on oa piers 23 and 25 for the rea
son that such work would involve wir
ing the piers for electricity and the
commissioners feared that this might
invalidate the insurance on the prop
erty. If the company is able to get
the consent of all the insurance com
panies interested the board may re
consider its decision.

Project Supposed to Have
Been Dropped Will . Be '
' Pushed Through
OROVILLB, July 11.— It has been
learned from authentic sources that
the work of developing the French
creek power plant will be begun short
ly. Nearly. . four years ago a large
amount of money was spent in surveys,
road building and in purchasing water
rlght3, machinery, etc.. with the object
of establishing an immense power
plant at French creek, a tributary of
the- North" Fork, about 25 miles from
Orovllle. >*" . \u25a0 ,'
The Pacific gas and electric corpora
tion, which Is a ; merger of the Bay
Counties- power company, was behind
the proposition, and after a great deal
of preparatory work had been done the
project was; given .up and it was
thought abandoned.
-The plant as originally "proposed was
Intended to generate from 16,000 to
20,000 horsepower, but; the new project
is said to be of greater magnitude and
it Is thought may rival the "Western
power company's plant at Big Bend, as
the promoters have. ln thelr'possesslon
water rights s whlch will give them fa
cilities for furnishing unlimited powsr.
