SPRING VALLEY BEGGAR TURNS UGLY
THAT sturdy beggar among the corporations, Spring Valley,
carrying its hat in one hand and a club in the other, is now
swinging the club. Publicity spoiled its plan to fill the hat
with city money by whining mendicancy; now the beggar
threatens. The latest move of the water monopoly has been to
reduce the pressure in its mains in certain districts, chiefly the
.Western addition, and to serve notice on the consumers of these
sections that they must be economical or they will have no water
at all. The beggar corporation, .refused alms,, is turning ugly.
Give it $160,000 of public money or it will force the public to go
without water.
The pretense on which this impudent beggary is advanced
has not the slightest foundation. The company has. an ample
water supply. -It has so -declared. On the "testimony of the cor
poration's president there is now on hand a sufficient supply for
the consumption of IJOOO days. The plant may or not be adequate,
but .the deficiency, if any, is not serious and can be readily met.
Quite possibly this may require an assessment on the stock, but
the amount cannot, be- .large,,. even if we accept the statements of
the corporation officials. .. .
\u25a0 The demand that the -tax payers should supply this money
is preposterous and .not to entertained for a moment. The
merest- statement of the nature of that demand is sufficient to
demonstrate its unjustifiable maurey-. Here is a company-declaring
on; oath; that its property is worth, upward, of $50,000,000, .. and
yefc iJ? cebnes, hat in hand, asking the tax payers of. San Francisco
to make a gift of a considerable snm^to be invested for the com
pany's benefit, to add to its plant and improve its facilities. That
is to say, the tax payers- are asked to increase- the investment on
which they must pay interest in the shape of water rates. Jn
other words, the public is implored to give $160,000 to the com
pany'and subsequently to pay interest on its own money forever.
It is an impudent and unconscionable demand, backed by threats.
Of course, the. city will not accede to any such imposition,
and "the owners of the water plant, must get out of their difficul
ties Ijy their ov» m efforts. Other people lost money and property
by r .tfie fire and have had to make up their own losses.; Spring
.Valley, must do the; same.
From the beginning of its history the water, company has
,been' a "positive injury to San Francisco. In former years it was
the, clue"f. Corrupting influence in local "politics. Always its charges
liave ...been exorbitant. Now it comes alternately begging, and
threatening. It is time ; that these unsatisfactory relations .were
ended by getting rid of this corporation forever as far the water
supply of the city is concerned. San Francisco should '.own its
water and will, doubtless, be willing to pay a fair price
for- such part of the Spring Valley plant as may be needed, but
the buyer and not the seller will fix the price.
CITY AND COUNTY HOSPITAL SITE
VIRTUALLY* unanimous concurrence will be given to Super
visor d'Ancona's proposal to rebuild the city and county
hospital on the old site or on almost any other site than
: the calnrshouse tract. ; There js a very general agreement
among all ~who have given the matter attention that a mistake
was made when the almshouse tract was chosen as the future
location of the hospital. That neighborhood is the worst possible
choice for hospital purposes. It is damp and fog steeped. Trie
suiftmer trade winds, are harsh' and there is no shelter. Above
all;, the place is distant from, the center of population. It would
be almost inhumaa to insist on transporting sick people Ho such
a distance-over .high. hills, and bad roads. Altogether, no worse
locatiori' for a hospital; could be found on this peninsula.
'•^ome -money has .already been raised on bonds for the con
"truttioh ;of a hospital. There may be 'some legal difficulty about
tHeriuse.of.that money for a location not contemplated or specified
in;"tW- -vote for bonds, but;presutnably this objection, can be overr
com^-The people, doubtless, have the power and right to rescirid
their former 'action by^flie*". same method of election. /There \u25a0 can
not be any doubt that when tlie question is submitted" to "change
the location the vote will be decisively in favor of 'the'bld site.
The place is convenient in , every and we do 'not believe
thaf the "residents of the neighborhood .will make objection. A
hospital 15 really a good sanitary neighbor.
We' hope that the proposition will be pressed. Present condi
tions "are disgraceful. . TheyJ would have been reformed long ago
had it. not 'been for .the .worthless and incompetent administration
with which this city has been cursed for two years: It is: a
pleasure once more to find men in control who take hold and' do'
something for the good of San Francisco!

A QUARRELSOME FOLK

liminary to the national irrigation congress. ...Ajngry.. charges, are
made, involving the integrity of the_ rQCjamation^ service and its!
officials. Waste and- favoritism are alleged in the prosecution of
the work. ? It is probably true, that the government work is 'more
expensive than it might be if done by private enterprise. ' On the
other hand, it will probably be done in a more' thorough and sat
isfactory fashion. Yet as the. settlers are partners. in the enterprise
and will, in the last resort,- foot the bills, they 'haye'the undoubted
right to be heard. The slightest acquaintance with the methods
of bureaucracy shows how difficult it is to get such rights recognized:
This dispute, however, is by no means one sided, nor is* it alto
gether a wrangle between the bureaucrats and .tlie settlers. There
is a third party, whioh assumes the name of .the Yuma County water
users' association. This .body officially declares that the objector's
are merely a lot of disgruntled soreheads, nqt^at all^epresentative
of the real sentiment of the cpmmunity. We shall not pretend any
knowledge of the merits- of the ; controversy, but will -rejoice to
keep a ring for the~scrappers when they come together at Sacramento.
THERE seems to be no good reason! why people residing along
the line of the Geary street -railway should be denied the
use of that road pending the installation' of a' municipal plant/
The present denial of these facilities causes^extremel conges
tion 'oh parallel lines in the rush hours. Doubtless .it suits trie
United! Railroads t very • well that the ;Geary; street f road .should
continue to be tied up, but the board of • supervisors- is- in- no wise
