Merchants and Supervisors for a Tunnel Under Hill
Merchants Suggest Regrade of
Blocks and Tunnel From
Bush to California
T!>e most interesting: single feature
relating: to th* tffyelopnient of real
estate values ia San Francisco, as a
long time proposition and relating: to
jrssy n'isrhborhoods. probably is found
in the discussion relating to the tun
rielinit: of i:i;is in order to reduce grades
«Lisd' provide easy routes from various
dJ»tr>cts to the retail business centers
of the city.
Naturally the Merchants' association
is interested in ail that •will upbuild
the business of S&u Francisco, as its
membership embraces hundreds of
iirms. retail end wholesale, who in
the development of trade and com
merce one of the prime and permanent
'actor* of solid local growth.
A detailed statement is made by the
association of the plan that it favors
crsd in a petition filed with the super
visors in which a changre of grade on
Stockton street is sought.
The petition calls for the following
1. That the grrade in Stockton street
between Sutler and Sacramento be
changed and established at the inter
sect-on of Bush, Pine, California and
Sacramento streets at such points as
nay be recommended by the city en
gineer so that there shall be a uniform
gradient between Sutler and Sacra
mento streets of approximately 3.7
per cent.
2. That Stockton street from the
northerly line of Sutter to the south
erly line of Bush a^jd from the north
erly line of California street to the
southerly line of Sacramento be graded
to the above proposed new official
grade by means of open cuts, as sug
gested on blue print map.
S. That Stockton street from the
southerly line of Bush to the northerly
.line cf California be graded to the new
cfSeisl grade by tunneling through the
iniervening hiJL said tunnel to be full
width of the street and of a suitable
height, as suggested on the map.
4. That said portion of Stockton
street from gutter to Sacramento upon
which the grade wilj be changed be im
proved by paving the roadway with a
suitable pavement and constructing
sidewalks thereon and stairways there
from to Bush street and California
street at Its intersections with said
streets, and such other improvements
as the city engineer may recommend.
5. That the name of Stockton street
for that portion of said street on the
present grade between the southerly
line of Bush street and the northerly
line of California street be abolished
ar.d that these t«-o blocks be thereafter
designated as Stockton heights.
€. That the official grade of said
Stockton heights* between Bush street
?n<s California street be fixed and es
tablished at the present .grade of the
pavement thereon.
T. That the money to defray the cost
of changing and establishing said
grades, improving said Btreets and the
payment <*t «ny damages caused by 1
said change* of grades be raised in
tuch manner as may be permitted by
law and as in the opinion of your
honorable board may be deemed best,
The current number of the Mer
chants* Association Review discusses
th«» Ttire proposition and officially
*»ts forth the attitude of the associa
tion. That the matter may be clearly
ur.dfitiood by ail persons who are in
terested, much of the arguments are
republished. as follows:
"Recognizing that the next great de
velopment of San Francisco will have
to come through the .construction of
tunnels under the hills that now di
vlje the city into comparatively small
«n<J detached areas, the Merchants' as
sociation has given an impetus to the ;
movement by Cling a petition for a !
r henge of grade In Stockton street
between the southerly line of Bush I
street and the northerly line of Call-;
forn'a, to be effected by tunneling '\u25a0
through the intervening jiill.
"Other changes of grade to conform
to this one are aIEO recommended. ;
forming a complete scheme of street
Improvement to connect the Xorth
b^ach section \u25a0with the business center
of the city by a new thoroughfare \u25a0with •
practical grades and ample accommo
dations for all ports of traffic
"The association Jid not take up the
Stockton street project sooner because
IX was believej that this tunnel would
be constructed by a street railway com
pany that applied several months ago
for a franchise, but since that plan has
b«en abandoned the directors feel that
some other should take its place.- It j
ban therefore been decided to make a
beginni-ng witli Stockton street, be- >
cause It is one of the most important
of all the tunnel proposals, and Is ;
alto one of the shortest and least .
expensive. Several of the owners of
property in the vicinity of the im
provement have signified to the asso
ciation a willingness to. forego dam
age* and some even to bear part of
the expanse.
"Owners of property in Stockton
street from Sutter to Bush and from ;
California to Sacramento, where open
cuts are suggested, are almost unani
mously In favor of the project, fnas
much a* the change of grade will put
their holdings on a comparatively level
street with possibilities of business de
velopment, which it lacks in its present
state; and that In the one or two cases
where expensive improvements already
exist there has been evinced a willing
ness to come to acceptable terms about
damages and to build substructures
under the buildings that will bring
them down to grad* after the method
adopted in Seattle by owners ot prop
erty similarly affected by such Im
Incidentally the official publication
of the Merchants" association quoted
E>r. Hartland Law. who advocates tun
nels as a means of access to thousands i
of acres within the city limits and to
provide for a population that will
grow rapidly.
Law's views are given in part as {
"Tunnels would bring Into close j
touch with" the rest of the city at
least 2^oo acres of the populous North
beach section, where probably 40,000
people now live and where many more
would live if they had quick communi
cation with the center of the town.
"A tunnel, under _ Mount Olympus
from Danvers street* northwesterly to
Clayton would Join the Mission with
the* park and with, the Richmond^dis-j
trict- Tunnels under. Fillmore from
Haigtot to Grove and under Pierce
from California to Green would con
nect the northwest portion of the city
with passable approaches to ". Market
street. ' In addition we need a way Into
Visiiacioa valley by .Potrero avenue,

Army street and Railroad avenue,
which may necessitate a short tunnel
down near the county line from Teddy
avenue to San Bruno."
Law argues as follows. "All these
projects are necessary to the contin
ued growth and prosperity of the city.
They must be put through some, day
and why- not now, when we actually
need the advantages they would bring?
At present we are divided Into little
separated sections. By bringing these
together with communicating thor
oughfare we help build them up and
make them more valuable and by link-
Ing them with business centers of the
city we make the whole commercially
stronger and also more attractive to
President Casey of the board of pub
lic works takes the view that the work
of tunneling should be performed un
der the district assessment plan. "We
must, of. course, first find the district
that will be beneSted and the probable
cost," he says. The Merchants" Associa
tion Review quotes Casey as follows:
-In addition to lhis treatment ot
Stockton street, there ought to be sev
eral other streets Improved in the
same manner, where they run over
steep grades and divide the city. There
should be a tunnel under Broadway, be
tween Powell and Larkin. so that the
northwest part of the city may have
good communication with the rest of
"There should be another out in the
Glen park neighborhood, and some bet
ter facilities should be provided for the
people in the Mission to reach the park
and the beach, which is as great an at
traction. Last, but probably most Im
portant, there ought to be a tunnel un
der Twin peaks, for it would immedi
ately bring Into close communication
with the city and make available for
home sites some of the finest land in
the state for that purpose. * .
"From O street, in the Sunset district,
sloping south to the lands of the
Spring Valley company, and west to
the ocean beach, is a beautiful terri
tory that has never been settled as it
should be because it lacks transporta
tion and probably will until the Twin
peaks tunnel is built.
"Until it has transportation, people
that might %o there are going to build
across i the bay on land that is not
nearly' #o desirable. I regard tunnel
ing these heights as the next big devel
opment for the city to enter upon, and
probably the most important of them is
the Twin peaks project. Needless to
say, the tunnels, when built, should be
street wide and on grades to accommo
date all sorts of traffic."
The general subject is now before the
supervisors and the people for consid
rep6rt active demand- .

Only people of wealth can afford
to pay rent
To tie average business or professional man enjoying a mod*rrate in-
come the .forty or fifty dollars which he must pay monthly for a
flat or apartment at all in keeping *with his requirments, rcpreseat
a net "waste.
"One must live**. Yes, that is true: but one must not necessarily
live in a high-rent flat. *Wty not take that rent and apply it on a
an attractive suburb, quick of access to'your business; twenty-four
minutes from San Francisco; where a large number of people in your
own class Lave already built; where streets, sidewalks, trees, sewers,
lights and telephones are finished uni- installed, — not promised.
Why not buy and build in EASTON. See EASTON for
yourself. There are so many suburbs and all of them, nave been
painted in such vivid colors, that you have probable grown, skeptical
at so much goodness. Take the 11:49 a. m. or 2:05 p. m. trains or
San Mateo electric cars; our agent: will snow you EASTON.
You are under no obligation to buy . for we do not even offer to
return your fare. Remember, easy monthly payments make you a
property owner here.
