EVENTS IN THE COUNTIES BORDERING ON THE BAY OF SAN FRANCISCO TEVI'S REPLY DOES NOT SUIT COUNCIL Alameda Officials Declare That the Water Magnate's Letter Evades Vital Issues ALAMEDA, July 6.— President Wil liam 8. T<?vis of the Bay Cities water company has. in accordance with a promise he made to Mayor W. H. Noy and the members of the public util ities committee of the city council at a conference held in the city hall last week, reduced to writing and forwarded to the mayor answers to requests then made to the water magnate that cer tain changes be made in the form of contracts being circulated here. Mayor Noy and Councilman William Hammond Jr., chairman of the public utilities committee, have jointly replied to Pres ident Tevis. Both communications are here given: San Francisco, July 1. 1910. Hon. William <H. Noy, Mayor of Alameda, Cal. — Sir: Referring to the several matters to which you have directed attention in connec tion with the water contract now being presented to the citizens of Alameda by our solicitors, we beg to say that you are no doubt fully aware of the impossibility of so framing a document as to forestall suggestions of modifications. Also that no matter how complete it is thought to be when adopted, expe rience is certain to show some minor points at least wherein it might have been made more ex plicit. DEMANDS UNIFIED FORM On the contrary and especially in connection with such efforts as we are now putting forth, it is a funda mental prerequisite that all with whom we enter into contractual relations should stand upon identi cally the same ground. It, there fore, follows that the form of con tract once adopted and used must stand to the end. However, this condition does not in any way re strict us from defining our under standing of the true intent and meaning, both of the spirit and the - letter of the document itself, and such definition by us, jwe are ad vised, is quite as obligatory upon us as is the document itself. It has never occurred to us that any one would entertain a doubt re garding our intention, in the event that a justifiable amount of busi ness was pledged, to provide Ala raeda and other communities from \u25a0which we are soliciting, with a sup ply of water procured from sources entirely separate and apart from all sources from which present water supplies are obtained. We I have advertised this feature re peatedly and certainly will stand squarely by our representations. In other words we regard all of our contracts, whether with the citi zens of Alameda, Oakland or Berkeley, or other east bay shore communities, as if they contained clauses specifically defining our po sition in this respect. And. if it were practicable, we would be en tirely willing to specifically amend *>very contract made by inserting therein a clause, as suggested by your honor, and reading about as follows: "It is contemplated that the waters herein provided for shall be procured from a source or sources •of supply other than those from • which the existing water supply of the city of Alameda (or other town in which contracts are being taken) is now obtained. Otherwise this contract may be rescinded and declared null and void by the party of the second part." But, for reasons given, ft is en \u25a0 tirely impracticable to amend any one contract without similarly amending all, and to do this .is quite impossible. "'" ' . " . . RATE CLAUSE DEFI.VED Regarding the clause in the con tract that refers to rates, we beg . to explain that the maximum charge only is fixed thereby, such maximum charge being governed by Use legally established rate. \u25a0 That is. if the water company were furnishing 11,000.000 gallons of water per day under the contracts, they would preclude a greater charge than 29 cents per 1,000 gal lons. But if at the same time the legally established rate was only £7 cents per 1.000 gallons, then, ac cording to the language of the contracts, such legal rate would control. The contract was drawn with the express purpose of compelling the delivery of water to coi»tract cus tomers at the legally established rates regardless of the rate for the time being applicable as provided by the contract. For instance, Alameda has now established a legal rate of 30 cents per 1.000 gal . lons, which rate will certainly con trol maximum prices charged to \u25a0 customers under contract, until either a lower ltgal rate is fixed or until the quantity supplied to con tract customers automatically brings a lower rate into effect. We hope we have made ourselves entirely clear in the foregoing and we assure you. and through you, I not only the citizens of Alameda,. but all who have entered into con tract with us, that we feel our selves ap firmly bound by what Is here stated as if it were framed in the most formal legal language and embodied in all of the .contracts with which we have been favored. I have the honor to be, sir, most respectfully, WILLIAM S. TEVIS. CITY OFFICIALS REPLY Alameda, Cal.. July 5. 1910. William S. Tevis, President Bay Cities Water Company, San Fran cisco, Cal.: Dear Sir — Your favor of the first inst. dealing directly with form of contract, together with explana tion as to rates, came duly to hand. Our idea was that* the subject of option would be satisfactorily an swered. " We expected a definite agreement that the company would sell to the I city the. distributing plant, at any time within 10 years of installa- ' tion. for the cost price thereof plus interest: also an agreement that water would be> sold to the city thereupon at a rate to be, deter mined by arbitration. These de tails were not in agyway referred to, and we are at' a loss to deter mine whether you have withdrawn them entirely or whether you pro pose to submit them In some 'other form. . .' . We might explain our position by stating that these two questions interest us far more than does yiur form of contract. Our citi- v . zens expect us to take such steps as are in our power to make such con tracts or arrangements as may be beneficial to our city in the future.' We would therefore • request • that - these matters be given immediate \u25a0 attention bj' yourself, and board of E • directors. -Your 6 very truly, WILLIAM H. NOY, >\~ Mayor of. Alameda: "\u25a0' WILLIAM HAMMOND JR..: '" Chairman of Public Utilities Com- - mlttee.

POOR RELATION OF CARNEGIE EXPIRES Mrs. Diana Greenset Dies in Infirmary Conducted by Alameda County ALAMEDA, July 6.— Mrs. Diana Greenset, a relative of Andrew Carnegie and a resident of this city, died today at the Alameda county infirmary, where she was taken last evening from her home, 2560 Encinal avenue. The woman who succumbed in the poor house and the multimillionaire had the same maternal grandmother, it is said. Mrs. Greenset had long been in re ceipt of an allowance of $25 a month from her famous relative. The money was forwarded to her regularly from an eastern bank in which, it is said, the steel king had placed a deposit suf ficient to draw interest' to the amount of $25 a month, : with orders that the interest was to be paid to Mrs. Green set as long as she lived. Mrs. Greenset was a widow, 54 years of age. She was born in Scotland and came to the United States when a young woman. She had lived in Ala meda for some years, making her home with her daughter, Mrs. William Gar dener. Her health began to fail re cently and* as the allowance she re ceived from Carnegie was not suffi cient to procure her proper medical at tention and care it was decided to have her enter the county infirmary. She was very low when she reached the in stitution last evening and failed to rally, but expired this afternoon at 4 o'clock. The funeral will be held from a local undertaking parlor.

Both were arrested and charged with disturbing the peace.. The argument started in a barber, shop while they were, having their faces shaved. So heated became the wordy battle that for a few minutes -it was a tossup be tween 1 shaving and. suicide. The ques tion was taken up in a nearby saloon and continued in the street.*.-': ' c Donaldson maintained that Jeffries would have 'jenocked the nigger into the middle of , next week ; in the. early days, while Dennison declared that the Afro-American would have wiped the floor with 'his white brother at any sta,ge of the game. Then they clinched.- Donaldson, poked a right ito the eye of the' plumbing president, and'^the latter | drove a left hook to the abdo men of the patent developing man.

The cause of the commotion was Charles Johnson, a husky sailor, suf fering from. delirium tremens. who" had been held . at the central emergency hospital; which borders on the square. The man made his escape from his cell by feigning to be asleep when the nurse. Miss Mary E. Maher, entered to give him medicine. When he saw the nurse well Into the room he made a spring from his bed which put him be tween the door and Miss Maher, but she managed to slip by him before he could recover his balance and rushed out.- shutting the door after her. The sailor throwing his, weight against the door forced it open before the nurse could snap the padlock into place. The nurse called for assistance, but Johnson escaped to the park before other hospitaf attaches could arrive. Edward Kugelberg. the orderly, after a dash of 100 feet, seized Johnson by his arm, but the latter kept running as if unimpeded and soon broke away. Meanwhile. Dr. Edward Topham. hos pital surgeon, had run around the Golden Gate avenue side ot the hos pital and soon caught hold of Johnson. The sailor kept on running, though much hampered. At this Juncture Harry A. Hargrave, a former Princeton football player, happened through the park and. taking in the situation, made a flying tackle, upset doctor and sailor and the three wrestled for some seconds on the . ground. Steward O'Day then arrived and the naked fugitive was soon a prisoner. . - The ambulance, which had been driven at a furious pace by James Tobin up Golden Gate avenue to Inter cept the runaway, dashed Into the park and amid a .hasty covering of dead tree limbs and a small blanket John son was put in and taken back to the hospital.
