UNION TO IGNORE
MASTER PAINTERS
Not Disturbed by Possibility
of Attempt to Reduce
Wage Scale
Mea Say They Will Deal Di

of Buildings
* The member* - of
J * T £*^£* |??i?gcgi»£'L^ f painters' union No.
"19 say that they are
not disturbed by the
action of the master painters* associa
tion Wednesday nlgrht In relation to of- j
ferlag a redaced wagre scale. They «ay '
that the reason that the. master paint
ers are laying off men Is that they have
so work for them. As soon as the
weather Is fair a«*in there will be
plenty of work for. the painters. There
are many new houses that ' have to be
primed and painted, but on account of
the timber being wet it is impossible
to do' the work. At union headquar- i
ters in McAllister street It wu uld
yesterday that If the master painters
did cot want to pay uaioa prices It
would not affect the members of the !
unlcn, as they would treat directly with !
owners of houses or others who wanted
painting: or paper hanging done. It i
was said that the union would not ask!
the master painters to confer with It.

Firet Vice President John Cofleld pre
sided at the meeting 'of- the building
trades council last night. Representa
tives of brick layers' union No. 7 were
In attendance and -when communica
tions were reached, under the regular
order of business, there was one from
the brick layers conveying the Informa
tion as to the action taken by that
body and announcing that the union
withdrew from .the council. A motion
to file the communication was made
and carried, after which the delegates
from the "withdrawing union arose and
walked out.
"What will be doae In this matter has
not ret been decided upon, but it is
probable that action will be deferred
until President HeCarthy returns from
Washington. D. C In tne meantime the
organizing committee of the council
Quietly will lay the foundation for a
dual union. . -', ". :>:
J. B. Bowen, vice president of the
state building trades council, stated
yesterday that there is nothing to be
done.
"If the union sees fit to take from
Itself the council's support and assist
ance it is at liberty to do so, and that
is all there is to it." he said.
During the council meeting. a ques
tion as to certain work being done by
the tile setters and the plasterers was
decided in favor of the former.
The controversy between the plumb
ers and the elevator constructors was
referred to the two unions to be set
tled by themselves.
The local or the international body
of the boiler and iron ship builders of
America is not pleased with the de
cision rendered recently by Judge
Troutt of the superior court awarding
to lodge No. COS of the united brother
hood of boiler makers and Iron ship
builders the sum of $1,100, which the
former organization had in its treasury
at the time that the majority of mem
bers -withdrew from the international,
The organization was one of the num
ber belonging to the iron trades council
that signed* the agreement with the
metal trades council to carry on busi
ness for a period of three years. The
general president of the international
asked the lodge to cancel that agree
ment and a majority, about SO per cent,
refused on the ground that it could not
conscientiously do so. Op receipt of
that answer the lodge was informed
that It would have to do as bid or step
down and out. The majority did go
out and formed a new union affiliating
with the united brotherhood, a dual in
ternational, taking with it, however,
all of the books and mone? of the
lodge under the other International.
The judge held that the new organiza
tion 'was justified in Its action.
International Vice President Wey
and. who has been here for some time
endeavoring to settle the existing dif
ferences, asserts that the funds, books
and seal are the property of the origi
nal organization, and •with that view of
the case they purpose to take an appeal
from the decision of Judge Troutt.
Wallers' union No. SO has been In
formed that the attorney for Mora
ghan's ' cafe, which is at outs* with the
union in relation to wages. Intends to
ask for leave to amend the petition for
an Injunction to prevent the' union
having pickets and advertising wagons
on the streets so. as to enlarge the
scope cf_ the I injunction. The union
purposes to contest the case when it
comes up in" court. At the meeting of
the labor council tonight the union will
ask tbat a boycott be declared against
the Moraghaa oyster: company. | which
Is controlled by the owner of the cafe
In which union men are not working. <

URGES VETO FOR
NEW LIQUOR TAX
Police Board, Says Approval of
Amendment i, Will Create
Many "Blind Pigs"
City Attorney Renders Opinion
Exempting Clubs From Pay*
ing High License
The opponents of. the amended liquor
license ordinance enacted by. the super
visors Monday hope; to be able to prove
to the satisfaction of Mayor Taylor that
it should not receive his signature. They
say that the ordinance, \u25a0in 'addition to
being unconstitutional, is dangerous be
cause It will permit the » lndiscriminate
sale, of liquors. ; . -'; : ','; '-";.:\u25a0\u25a0; .
Under the provisions of the new ordi
nance the |500 a year, license at : pres
ent Imposed on liquor dealers "win ap^
ply only to : persons- or - ; firms : selling
liquors In quantities less* than a quart
or to be drunk upon the premises.";.-,
The police commissioners say that the
ordinance, if it becomes a. ! law by -the
signature of the mayor, vwlll create
numerous "blind pigs.**; They, also con
tend that the restrictions governing the
sale of liquor should be formulated - by
them as a J police regulation. SI They
fought the ordinance before the .license
committee, and - being defeated: there
went before the board ; and again suf
fered defeat by a vote of 14 to 4. They
will now endeavor: to convince • Mayor
Taylor that the existing laws govern
ing the sale of liquors are adequate and
that the amendatory : ordinance should
be vetoed. *- .
On the other hand the champions of
the measure say that the ; present law
is a violation of : the charter, and for
that reason should be amended.
Mayor Taylor is gi%'ing. the ordinance
careful consideration, and will not sign
it until he has satisfied himself that it
Is for the "' best , interests of the city.
Should he decide to use the, veto power
the friends of the ordinance feel con
fident that It will; be passed over the
veto by the votes of the supervisors
who favored it before.
The police commissioners asked City
Attorney Long -recently , if Incorporated
and unincorporated dubs which serve
liquors to their members and. guests to
be drunk on the premises 'be
compelled to pay the yearly license of
$500 imposed on liquor dealers. Long
replied yesterday that^ the > purpose : of
the ordinance -Is to place a tax; by
license upon those engaged in the busi
ness of selling liquors, and as the sup
plying of liquor Isonly intended to add
to the comfort of the dub members. he
holds that liquor, licenses should not be
collected from such; organizations.
In another opinion Long, holds that
the tax collector Is authorized to. stamp
across the face of liquor licenses the
words *"Xo women patrons," as request
ed by the police commissioners. Many
saloonmen objected to the -use of the
stamp on their licenses.
RULES AGAINST BOARD
Supervisors Cannot Regulate
County Line Water Rates
That the supervisors , have no power
| or legal right to fix the • rates to be
i charged consumers by the County Line
water company is the opinion of City
Attorney Long. Some time ago the
utilities committee of the board asked
Long for an opinion on the question
whether one water company can exact:
from Its consumers a higher rate for
water than that exacted by another ]
company.
Long, while holding <that the super
visors must fix "a general and uniform
rate." holds that^they have no powerJto
| fix rates for the .County Line water
company, as it is a, mutual corporation,
whose waters are* limited to its own
stock holders. -'
The bylaws of the company provide
that \u25a0water shall be served to none but
stock holders, and under ; this \ proviso
Long holds that the board has no juris
diction/
T. B. Potter, president of the com
pany, asked the streets committee of
the" supervisors yesterday;; for permis
sion to open streets In the Reis tract
for the purpose of tapping the water
mains. The committee decided that the
board of works alone had; the right to
grant . the desired -permission. Potter
retired rather discouraged, as he nad
previously applied: to the -works board
and been referred to the supervisors. '
CONTRACTORS TO SUE CITY
The Pacific Coast construction com
pany refused yesterday to accept an
offer of $8,182 from the .finance com
mittee of the supervisors as -payment
In full for extra -work performed \ on
the Sixth street sewer. The company
presented a demand for. JII.SOO and the
supervisors k refused ', to allow It, \u25a0', the
city engineer -having that
JS.IS2 would be a reasonable price for
the work. The company will sue.

Paciflcv particularly, has always" been
antagonistic to the repeated efforts of
the steamer lines plying onTthe great
lakes to .become^ldentified -with the
transcontinental. tariffs applying ia Cal
ifornia.: 'The northern \u25ba lines having
their ' own : fleets running, between Du

great many cases it would be a great
convenience for the merchants of Cal-,

The ' present rate on green coffee In
carload quantities from New Tork ter
ritory and ,west thereof to : California
terminals is 80 cents per 100 pounds. At
the i recent \u25a0 meeting of ' the transconti
nental lines in Chicago . this rate "was
reduced to 75 cents per 100 pounds. This
reduction was made so that coffee from
the ; east/ coast of South America can
compete ' in • this ; -; market ' w-Ith coffee
from other" producing points coming to
San Francisco' by' ocean ' liners. The

.Effective March 1, the Southern Pa
cific will make a radical change in its

At present all | shipments are ' billed to

all . will receive, and bill

broaden the • education of a good many

ASKS-" FOR VIADUCT AT

Mission Promotion Association's
Request . for Improvement
Gives Board a Problem
A. B. ilaguire of the Mission promo
tion association appeared before the
streets committee of the supervisors
yesterday to urge that a permanent
viaduct be built at the foot of College
hill In Mission road, and that a 1a 1 bridge
for: the use of pedestrians be con
structed across the United Railroads
trestle in Chenery street.
The supervisors, while admitting the
need of the improvements, found them
selves without the funds to carry out
the; work. ". They will ask the city en
gineer," however, for an estimate of the
cost of building footbridges across the
present viaduct and the Chenery street
trestle.
