Commissioner of President
Makes Pointed Inquiries
of Merchants
Trade With Orient as Well
as Coast Commerce Is
Uncle Sam's .Preliminary
Steps for Competing With
Pacific Mail
President C. H. Bentley of the
chamber of commerce has taken up
the task of providing the war depart
ment of the United States with all
the information available in San Fran
cisco that the department requires
preliminary to considering the advis
ability of putting on a line of steam
ships to compete with the Pacific Mail
between the isthmus of Panama and
San Francisco and other Pacific coast
ports. A committee has been ap
pointed by Bentley, with Captain Wil
liam Matson as chairman, and includ
ing George D. Gray and James Mc-
This information has been asked for
by Joseph L. Bristow. who was ap
pointed a special commiFeloner by
President Roosevelt two years ago to
3ook into the steamship service between
American ports, and Is now under in
strur^jons by th«; war department to
;>ro<*ee<3 further along the same lines.
•1 am advised by the secretary of
war," Bristow has written to the cham
bers of commerce of San Francisco,
Lcs Angeles, San Diego, Portland. Seat
tle and Taroma, "that while the service
of the Pacific Mail steamship company
has not be*n withdrawn, that P l£^, is
very unsatlf factory. He has advised
me to take a further Inquiry as to the
advisability, of the government estab
lishing a steamship line between' the
Pacific coast ports of the United States
and Panama. -
At first it was supposed that the In
quiry would deal largely and to a cer
ra!n extent exclusively with the ques
tion of- how much freight pro
vided by the government as a canal
builder end -in its capacity of furnish
irg' supplies for the great naval and
military plants to be located at Fan
Francisco and for the insular pos
sessions of the United States in the
Pacific would move by sea. Now it
[s developed that the scope of the pro
posed governmental line of steamships
is much wider.
Bristow has submitted a list of ques
tion* to the several chambers of com
merce of the PacMc coast regarding all
*ort» of freight that canbe' moved by
sea, as follows:
"What kind of freight originates in
Fan Francisco and the vicinity within
its commercial radius for shipment to
the eastern part of the United States
and Europe?
"What part of this freight could be
*uccesEfully transported by way of
"Are there any articles of such
freight that it would not be prac
ticable to ship by way of Panama? If
»\u25a0\u25a0>, please name the articles and the
reason why shipment by way of Pana
ma .would be impracticable.
"What percentage of the freight that
could be successfully shipped by the
way of Panama is transported by that
route? What part by th« EtraiU of
Magellan? "What part by th« trans
continental railroads?
"Please state in detail why any part
of the freight that it is practicable
to chip by the way of Panama, is not
shipped by that route.
"What are the principal articles of
freight shipped from San Francisco to
points, cast of the Allegheny moun
tains? What are the principal articles
of freight that are shipped from San
Frasclsco to the Mississippi valley?
What are the freight rates charged on
each of the principal articles of such
"What are. the principal articles of
freight received at Can Francisco from
Europe, the eastern coast of the United
Stat«s and th» Mississippi valley? What
are the freight rates charged on the
principal articles V
These are followed by a series of
other questions, . in which it is asked
pointedly as follow*:
- "If a large part , of the freight that
rould be shipped by way of Panama
is shipped by. other routes, please state
the .reason?";
"What. American steamship com-;
panles doing business on the Pacific
coast have;* vessels- that would be
equipped for handling efficiently cargo

Lagunitas Concern Accused
of Causing Threatened :
Water Famine * \u25a0
Taking immediate advantage of the
court's action in rescinding the re
straining order iesued to " the Lagu
nitas water company earlier in the
week, officials of the Marin county
water company rushed I a force of
workmen to the Bern ranch in Marin
county yesterday afternoon to repair
the break whichthey asserted Lagu
nitas company employes had made in
their lines. Speed was of the utmost
importance, as the -residents of San
Rafael and other- towns dependent
upon the supplies of the Marin com
pany were threatened with a water
A large number of men was sent to
the ranch by the Marin company,. as it
believed that a battle might be waged
for possession. conclusion was
based upon the assertions made by
A. E. Shaw, attorney for the Lagunitas
and' Spring Valley companies, that the
water sources .used by the Marin com
pany belonged -to the corporation that
he represents and that it meant to
keep interlopers but.
\u0084'TVe will put as many men on the
ranch as the .. Marin company puts
there,** en idjgjia vr, "and If this is' to be
a sort of Donnybroqk fair It will not
be our. fault."' '* - ",';,."•• -:r- v ;--- i " *~
Jesse W. LJlienthal,! counsel for the
Marin' • corporation; ' took - ; this as a
threa.t of trouble.. The : Marin . pip©
; line's army of protection" then .was or
ganized and dispatched.
Afterward". . LiliehthaV berated the
Lagunitas officials" for their "alleged' ac
tion-in cutting, off .the .flow of water
in, the pipe lines under the authority of
the 'temporary restraining order.
Lilienthal attacked, this move on the
part of the Lagunitas concern in un
measured terras, even going to the
length of saying, that the court had
been deceived as to the facts of .the
case before granting the order.' ' ~ f *L*
He. asserts. that. he,' as representati\"«
of the_ company, had not been served
with any notice of the granting of the
temporary injunction and that the first
intimation his company v had received
of the order came last Thursday Rafter
noon, when the flow of water through
the pipe Jines,- which are led over the
Berri ranch property, suddenly stopped.
Men : were sent out from the pumping
stations. of the Marin company to catch
the break in the lines... On reaching
the Berri ranch, boundaries they, had
been met by a force of employes 'of
the Lagunitas water company," who ex
hibited the court' order and compelled
the Marin representatives to leayethe
ground.. » '
Lilienthal further, said that 'as .soon
as reports reached him. regardlng^the
locality and nature of the ; break f in
the pipe lines he would take steps to
have indicted!- all responsible for.;. th<»
stoppage. of the flow.. He claimed that
for nineteen years his company has
been making use of : the water of the
Swede . George - creek and . had \ a deed
from the owners: of the Barrl ranch
property giving it' permission to cross
the property with their pipe lines^This
deed is dated IS7I. \, /-
When the employes: of the Marin
water company left San Francisco yes
terday afternoon- they were under In
structions to allow no lnterferenco
with. their work and to resort to ; force
if necessary. One of the pumps oper
ated by the Marin water company
broke down last Wednesday arid this,
added to'ithe unforeseen .'stoppage'; of
the Swede . George creek supply, which
amounts to about 250,000 r gallons a day,
had caused the officials of the company
great anxiety.^^S^^l^^^f,'. - ; .
In ' answer; 'to ..the "i charges . made
