Assessor Dal ton Reports
Great Influx of New
OAKLAND. July 15.— County Asses
sor Henry P. Dalton has Increased the
assessment roll of Alameda countjfc this
year over 1906 by a total of $52,584,453.
The bulk of the raise falls upon- the
city of Oakland, which is elevated $34.
456,226, or a trifle more than two-thirds
more than last year.
This enormous increase In the as
sessed valuation of the city Is explained
by Dalton on the ground of an unex
ampled prosperity last year, the Incom
ing: of thousands of persons who have
made their, permanent homes here, a
large increase In business houses and
manufacturing. Dalton further adds
that there has been a marked activity
along: all aines of industries. Corporate
interests generally have enlarged the
scope of their enterprises as well as
materially increasing: the capacity of I
their plants, the assessor reports.' v \
Not In the history of Alameda county I
has there been such a tremendous leap ;
In values as appears from the county
assessor's figures.
For many years Dalton assessed
Oakland In tbe neighborhood of $45,
000,000. This year he has fixed the
total for Oakland at $92,753,417, as
agralnst $58,290,159 for the previous
year. His total. for Alameda county Is
4173.445,384, compared with J120.857.931
for 1906. , - ':
There has been a grainjjoted In every
town and township in ttfe county. Next
to Oakland. Berkeley shows the heav
iest increase, this year's total:-, being:
$25,559,€54, as against $17,957,384, an
increase of $11,632,300. Alameda shows
a gain of $1,138,720, this year's figures
being: -513,457,673 and last year's $12,
318.953. . ••
The new town of Piedmont is* as
sessed for $2,777,750.
With the exception of the 'Spring
Valley \u25a0water -works, the large public
service corporations with holdings in
Alameda county show. a higher, assess- .
mrnt than In 1906. The Increases in
assessments in these are as follows:
Oakland Traction Consolidated, $1,
313.400; Key Route, ?693,550; Oakland
pa*, light and heat company, $1,175,775;
Southern Pacific railway company,
$ 1,273.350 ; People's water company,
$1,565,375: Sunset telephone and tele
graph company, $450,675; Home tele
phone company. (265,000.
Dalton calls attention to an increase
of more than a quarter of a million dol
lars in the mortgages of the institution
for the deaf, dumb and blind and the
t'nlverslty of California, which are
nontaxable. This year the totaf is
$970,350. as against $675,375 in 1906.

City Assessor George E. Gross of
Oakland has not completed the muni
cipal assessment, which is independent
for city taxation purposes of the county
assessor's valuations, which are for
state and county tax purposes only. It
is roughly estimated that the city fig

lions more than those of the county
Asseeor Dalton has notified the. board
of supervisors that he will turn over
the assessment roll tomorrow or

Says Railroad Builders Take
Anything That They
Supervisors Investigate Re
quest i to . Rebuild
v REDWOOD .: CITT. . July. 1 5.— TErer
since the Ocean Shore railroad people
oommenced operations in this county
whenever they have wanted anything ;
they- have Just taken. it... They have notj
asked 'permission before.- and now, only j
when they believe' the county can b« i
of service, do they ask anything of
us." In these words Julius Eiterlnkot-f
ter, supervisor of the first road district 1 '
of San Mateo county, at the regular j
session of- the county officials Tester- j
day, gave ' vent *to lons smoldering;
wrath. ; \u25a0.
Claiming that It was in the Interest : ,
of the Ocean Shore railroad almost en- i
tl rely .to have a, long stretch of the •
San . fiedro and Half Moon bay highway j"
reconstructed. Supervisor Eikerinkotter \u25a0
demanded that the board investigate i
the request backed by. some 300 prop-!
erty owners of the coast side district!
to determine .whether the county would)
be justified in expending several thou- |
sand dollars to place a road in condl
tion for traffic of the railroad teams. -~ !
Not only did Elkerlnkotter betiev* !
that it waa largely in the Interests of
the railroad people that the road was j
promoted, but that - the present poor j
condition of the county, highway had;
been caused by blastings .of the rail-:
road construction gangs. ."Why. after!
the railroad is completed," said the!
supervisor, "the traffic, upon the road!
will not exceed one . team a day the. '
year around, and before I undertake !
to repair that road I want it understood j
that " the sides of several mountains ,
have been to left by grading that there '
will be a -washout and slide every year ',
which -will entail several hundreds ofj
dollars in repairs from the county !
The supervisors decided to investi
gate the situation and scrutinize the
interests Involved. Action on the pe
tition was passed up for one month.
The road under fire is a .highway
from Half Moon bay to the main roads
of the county leading to Colma and
San . Francisco, known as the old San
Pedro and Half Moon bay road.
Team Overturns a Crucible
That Is Standing Be
side Manhole *
BERKELEY, July 13.— Molten lead
ran down the neck of Qua Betake, an
employe of the Oakland gas,. light and
beat company, when a runaway team
this' afternoon overturned his equip
ment of tools by the side of a manhole
In Shattuck avenue in which he was
working. Betske was "wiping a Joint"
with hot lead, the stuff being passed
to him by his helper, William ?Vincant,
who sat by the manhole above. .The
lead was* sizzling in a crucible and til
was well. until the runaway horses ap
peared on the scene. tt; ->^>; j.-> .
The flying team t belonged, to Kldder
&. McCullough. contractors. The horses
ran into Betske's stuff, I 'dumped Vincent
overhand sent the hot lead in all direc
tions. Crucible, tools "and "lead all wer«
dumped ; into the manhole, and' Betake
got. .the benefit of t. most.-, of ...it.
The crucible struck him j on ' the ' head,
the molten lead'ijratt r.'jdownr his
shoulders and hia tools were scattered.
He sustained a number- of burns that
were painful .-but notiierious. . Abroad
sombrero hat that he wore* saved him
from the ".full "force/ 'of 2 the 'hot * lead.*
Without this protection he .would prob
ably have been fatally injured. '
