TO REBUILD HALLS OF
CITY BY BOND ISSUES
Board Decides to Submit
the Proposition to
the Electors
SULLIVAN PROTESTS
Contends One Building Is
Sufficient to House
Government
A resolution was adopted by the
board of supervisors yesterday declar
ing its Intention to submit propositions
to the electors of the city for the is
suance of $6,000,000 of bonds for the
construction of a new city hall of class
A construction, and of $750,000 for
erecting a new hall of justice.
Supervisor Sullivan vigorously op-"
posed the building of a hall of justice,
on the ground that there was no neces
sity for It, Inasmuch as the depart
ments could be accommodated In the
city hall. He succeeded in having
action postponed for one week on a
rseolutlon to purchase additional lands
for the hall of justice and county Jails.
The board ordered bids Invited for
the removal of the Larkin street wing
of the city hall and the taking down of
tbe dome.
The sum of $95,000 was set aside to
rehabilitate the first floor and basement
of the east wing, the McAllister street
wing and the central wing of the city
hall.
Bids were also asked for the removal
of the hall of Justice ruins.
Action was postponed one week on
the resolution providing that all
charred, bent and useless poles should
be removed from the streets within 30
days, and that the size, shape and loca
tion of .poles should be regulated. The
report of the adornment committee on
the subject said in part: "The poles
placed In the center of Twelfth street
and Van Ness avenue, which break
the lines of the roadways, show that
the contemplated ornamental trolley
poles for Market street should be
placed on the sides and not at the cen
ter of the street."
The board granted permission to the
teachers' annuity commission to with
draw Its bid for $50,000 worth of
school bonds. The reason for the with
drawal was that the rate of Interest
was too low.
The following appointments in the
offlce force were formally made: John
EL Behen, chief clerk; John H. Kyan,
first assistant clerk; T. B. McGinniss,
second assistant clerk, and John Finn,
stationery clerk.
.The petition of the health board for
appropriations of $122,600 and $91,490
for supplies for the county hospital and
almshouse, respectively, was referred
to the finance committee.
The Ca^stro Heights Improvement club
was permitted to withdraw its petition
to blast at Twenty-sixth and Douglass
streets.

Fill tbe Vacant Place
P. M. McGushin, after a month's de
lay, resigned as a member of the
board of supervisors yesterday, and
Mayor Taylor ' at once appointed A.
Comte Jr. to fill the vacancy. The
resignation was brief and contained a
request that it be accepted Immediately
on Its presentation to the clerk of the
board.
, McGushln's communication differed
from those of. bis former colleagues
In that It was entirely In his own
handwriting. The others were In type
written form, having been prepared by
District Attorney Langdon.
McGushln refused to resign with his
associates, insisting that he would
await the supreme court's decision as
to Mayor Taylor's tenure.
Supervisor Tveitmoe attended the
meeting of the board yesterday for the
first time since Mayor Taylor took
office. He had also questioned Mayor
Taylor's election and subsequent ap
pointment of a new board. The su
preme court having removed all doubt
Tveitmoe was willing to serve with the
new members.
The formal notification by Mayor
Taylor of his removal of the Schmitz
police commissioners was ordered
spread on the minutes of the board.

ALL DATA IS READY
WiU Be Submitted; Today to
Federated Water Com- '
; mittee Board
The executive board of the federated
water committee will meet this after
noon at the headquarters of .the Mer
chants' association in the Merchants',
Exchange building to review : the reT
port, on the 'valuation of .the Spring
Valleys water- company plant, .as, esti-^
matedV and'; adduced by Engineer -W.
H. Heuer, chairman of the .executive
committee: The meeting will be im
portant In many ways and -much Inter-,
est in the outcome of the deliberations
is being shown.. .' t
Engineer Heuer, who was, requested
by. the -committee to make a
Investigation: of the water » problem
confronting this city, discusses ; in ' his
report ' possible - sources 'of :-";. auxiliary
supply,' the value of the ' Spring .Valley
plant, which, It has been,: suggested,
should, be .purchased,, and \u25a0 all other
phases of " the ? water question. \u25a0\u25a0
While-he declined to make ;the con
tents of the ; report . public before its
submission' to the executive committee,"
Heuer consented to give' Sjome: ldea . of
Its scope. All of the evidence* taken
in, the suit' brought by the Spring feVal-:
ley to enjoin the- board of ; supervisors
from imposing water rates |in *1903 . has
been .reviewed: The conflicting: esti
mates of .the several experts who were
called by the city and by the corpora
tion > have been }, examined: -; -> • ->
"Strangely enough,** Heuef said yes
terday, "if you take the average of all
the varying figures on the. value of the
Spring Valley plant, you > get a figure
surprisingly, near the tentative figure
of about $32,000,000. at which the com
pany offers its plant. I -cannot^ say
whether I have recommended. the pur
chase of theplant at that^or any other
figure. Spring Valley wants, in any
event, to retain its Merced properties
and offers to deduct from the asking
price $4,000,000 fot. the Merced plant.
The reason is that^an offer has been
made to the company « by .which It
could realize aboHt $13,000,000 from
Its Merced holdings by "disposing., of
the ; lands • for surburban homes and
villas. \u25a0 Should the city deem the, offer
of the company to sell \u25a0 the .entire
plant worth accepting, and except the
Merced property, with a "corresponding
reduction of $4,000,000, the- company
offers to permit the city toluse the lake
In Its water scheme until the Sierra
Is tapped by paying^! interest;- 1 on
$4,000,000. According to": Engineer
Grunsky's recent estimate, the .Merced
plant separately was held to be . worth
about $2,500,000. -•
"I have not considered, to any extent,
the merits of the Hetch Hetchy project
In my report. In my opinion. It would
take nearly 10 years to; make .! that
source available to the: city.;; During
those 10 years San Francisco! surely
would demand , a .temporary addition ; to
the supply available from" 'present
Spring Valley: sources. An addition^ of
at : least ;i.0,000,000^gallons; a, day ; Is
needed even" - now.'^,! ,tibpe 'the " people
of f^he. ; city," however, will .be* given' an
opportunity to pass upon "the .merits
of, the Hetch Hetchy or any " other
project which may Insure an adequate
supply of water. :.^3P^g3
"An additional'" supply : could 'be : ob
tained I from -the Alameda county hold-
Ings of Spring Valley./ These I have
considered in my; report. From one
source, at a cost of about $l,000,000,;a
supply of 10.000,000 gallons dally could
be procured- and from ;another In the
same county 20,000,000 "gallons a day
could be tapped' for. -about $2,000,000.
The whole could* be Joined ln-> one sys
tem, If It were deemed t necessary, and
a volume of 30,000,000 gallons of water
a day added quickly to the water sup
ply of-thls city, pending the time when
the Sierra streams- will" be tapped, as
probably they : . will jbe ultimately.
"The problem is-a; serious one and
should be looked atlsquarely. The
very existence of the! federated water
committee -is,. an .expression '• of the
gravity |of . the situation, because the
committee was formed for the purpose
of bringing- all" Interests of the city
together in concerted action- to bring
about a- prompt" and wise solution of
the question." ,r : >
i Engineer Heuer was doubtful wheth
er the report to! be: submitted today
would be made public' "until \u25a0 it was
thoroughly" gone^ over and perhaps re
vised by the ; . executive committee.
