if the action of the public utilities com
mittee of the board of supervisors
taken yesterday is indorsed by the
board when it meets on Monday next.
In the above quoted resolution of Su
pervisor J. O. Walsh the rights of the
city's road are to be protected, and the
United Railroads and the Sutter street
company barred from the outer tracks.
The public utilities committee also
recommended a resolution introduced
by Supervisor Robert J. L#oughery,
which provides that the Bancroft ordi
nance be not passed, but that the
board requests the Downtown associa
tion and other bodies to use their in
fluence with the United Railroads to
get the corporation to voluntarily, with
the co-operation of the board of su
pervisors, make the necessary changes
in the road to operate the Sutter
street cars over the inner tracks from
Sutter and Sansome streets to the ferry.
The Bancroft ordinance was a manda
tory measure to compel the United
Railroads to route its Sutter street
cars over the inner tracks.
Supervisors Bancroft and Oscar
Hocks stated yesterday that the L»ough

ResolreJ, we reoomtnond to the board of super
visors that the proposed ordinance introduced by
Supprrisor Bancroft, directing and requiring the
I'n',tf<l ttailrittds to irmke certain switches and
trolley connections aad operate Its cars in Sutter
*treet over and along the center tracks In lower
Marker street from Sansome to the ferry, be not
adopted, for the following reasons, to wit:
We belle** its adoption would not remove the
borseenrs or give the relief to the public it is
eoekinsf, rlz: continuous service over Sutter street
and Market to the ferry wlthont change of cars,
but. instead, would involve tbe city in endless
litigation: further.
We believe the courts bhould not be resorted to
for the adjustment of questions of thin kind
while other muns can be applied to accomplish
the purpose desired: further.
Ac a substitute, through which relief mar be
obtained, we recommend and urge the resident*
of fatter Btreet. the Downtown association, the
North End improvement club and other civic or
ganization* who desire improved service on the
Sutler street line and who have been petitioning
the board cf supervisors for a temporary permit
to the outer tracks in Market street, to exercise
the came r^al and influence with tbe United Itail
rr,a<i< us they did upon the board of supervisor!"
to have them make necessary switch and trolley
connection* *nd operate their Slitter street cars
over the center tracks in Market street to the
ferry for the accommodation of the public until
pucn time as the rights of the Sutter street rail
way company have been determined by the courts
through the action now pending before It Insti
tuted by this board: further.
The board of pupervfnorn declares it stands
ready to co-operate with the above named Im
provement elnhs and associations by granting

The meeting of the public utilities
committee yesterday afternoon was an
exciting event. The large hall of the
board was packed with a gathering
strongly in favor of the Geary street
road, and every reference to it was
cheered. Once, when Dr. George K.
Frink, in arguing for the outer track
permit for the Sutter street company,
said, "1 have discussed this thing
with Patrick Calhoun and he said he'd
take no advantage of the city, and if
he says a thing he will carry out his
word." there was a loud laugh from
the crowd.
Chairman Pugh of the committee
presided; The other members. present
were Herget, Loughery, Walsh and
Walsh first presented his resolution
Attorney Edgar Peixotto, who stated
that he appeared for the Downtown as
sociation, presented a resolution which
he declared would prove a panacea for
all Market street woes. It was to give
the Sutler street railway company a
temporary permit to use the outer
tracks, leaving the legal relations be
tween the city and the company in
statu <juo. Of course the Walsh reso
lution made the Peixotto suggestion
Talks were made by Attorney Oscar
Cooper, representing the Central im
provement association, Andrew J. Gal
lagher. Dr. Julius Rosenstern, D. S.
Hutchlngs, J. J. Pratt, president of the
Geary street municipal railway asso
ciation. Mr 6. Sparks and others.
Supervisor Bancroft produced addi
tional proof that the Sutter street cars
could be operated on the inner tracks.
The Walsh resolution was passed
unanimously; Hocks voted no on the
lx>ughery resolution.
