MAYOR NOY SCORES
THE SCHOOL BOARD
Alameda's Executive Objects to
Delay in Building Under
City Bond Issue
ALAMEDA, Sept. I.— -Mayor 'W. H.
Noy is of the opinion that the board of
education has lost much valuable time
in selecting designs and preparing for
the^ construction of two new school
buildings for -which bonds were voted
last year. , \u25a0 \u25a0•• '>• -'•
"The money- was provided some time
ago for the construction of two school
buildings," said the mayor, "but thus
far no actual work has; been started.
Plans for the Haight arid Washington
schools were called for. The Haight
school . designs were selected after
many, meetings. The plans submitted
on; the first call for the Washington
school were : rejected and different
plans were called for. "A selection has
not yet been riiade. It is time that the
board of education was getting busy
and giving the tax payers of Alameda
what they voted for — sufficient school
houses. The board is decidedly slow."
• School Superintendent Will C. Wood
considers that" Mayor Noy's complaint
is not well founded. .Wood said:
"It appears to me . that the mayor
does not thoroughly, understand why the
board of education has not made as
rapid progress as he would like to see
In the matter of school improvements.
We received many designs for the pro
posed buildings and it was a big task
to go over the plans carefully and se

"We have held many special meetings
to finish the work of . selecting plans
and awarding, building contracts. We
have had an addition to the Wilson

struction by Open Shop Men
SEATTLE, Sept.. I.— The damage to
the new steel Lyons building under

the principal open shop building cor
poration in the Pacific northwest, and
not one union man had been employed
on the job, but there had boen no spe
cial manifestation of hostility by the
unions recently. ' . .. "'*.-
The police have no clue to the dyna
miter. The man arrested while running
wildly out of an alley behind the build
ing proved that he was playing cards
in a gambling resort and grabbed chips
and fled when he heard the crash of
glass around him, which he believe'J
was due to a police raid.

CIVIL SERVICE IS
DESIRED BY POLICE
Heads of Oakland Department
Appear Before Charter Free«
holders to Suggest Plan vf^
OAkLAND, Sept. I.— Civil .service
provisions" to be incorporated in the'
new charter have been taken up by the
freeholders, and will probably; be draft
ed into clauses this: week. •.The 'desires
of the , police, department were laid^ be
fore the board; by Superintendent -of
Police "Wilson i and; Captaln}-of -Detec-"
tives Petersen,' but' the- ramifications of
tlie .problem were such that the free-_
holders deferred the preparation of that
part of the proposed -new charter for
further.investigation.. • " .- '
The flre department would be gov
erned by the same rcivil service 'provi
sions as the police .department, 1 and it is
yet to be determined whether the em
ployes of other departments of ; the
municipal government will be amen
able to the civil service rules. There
Is difference of opinion in; the free
holders as to. the practicability of civil
service in branches of the city which
are to be under the supervision of the
commissioners. . '- .•,;'\u25a0 '.. \u25a0 \u25a0 •.-.•-.,
The policemen's idea is for- aj civil
service board which would also sit as
trial board in cases of policemen. \u25a0 Such
a plan, argued Captain Petersen, is en
tirely compatible with the commission
plan of government. • '- ' . -- ''-.' ,' . '
"The civil service .board should, be
appointed by -the -mayor, but; be remov
able only by the commisisoners,": said
Petersen. | "The corhmisioner of public
health and safety. should have general •
supervision of \trie- department, sha,pe
its policies and enforce the rules. For
small | misdemeanors -he should , have
the power to fine policemen. But cases
involving dismissal ' from 'r the. force ;
should be tried -by , the civil service
board, over which. - the , commisisoner
would "preside arid which | would make
its findings to^ him for action. Thus
there would be.*?checks on" the power "of
the mayor, of the. commissioner and of
the civil service board.- This would put
the force as nearly out of politics as is
possible. • . . , .- . . .
"Salaries should be .equal .to those
in "San Francisco and Los. Angeles and
the amounts should be. named . in the
charter. .For patrolmen there should
be a graded scale. .so .that meritorious
service for more than one year, would
be rewarded." • \u25a0 - \u25a0 -
Freeholders Shaw, Chamberlain and
Hamb have been- named as. a. commit
tee to take up the framing of the civil
service provisions. ' * • .
ALAMEDA INVENTORS
BUILDING AEROPLANE
Declare Craft Is Improvement
-'Over Present Models .. ;
ALAMEDA, Sept- I.— William : Gor
ham and Oscar Starr are completing a
flying machine,, which,' the '. inventors
believe will mark a notable advance in
the science of aviation. . The craft;
combines features of the Curtiss and
Farman machines. . v ' ".
The engine that is to be installed is
a six cylinder, two cycle affair and
weighs 120, pounds. The engine, ..the
inventors say, is without valves and
in this respect is different from any
engine at present in use in airships.
The engine when once started will run
as long as it is supplied with gasoline
and oil, thus doing. away with, unexr

OPERA FESTIVAL
A BIG SUCCESS
Headliner at Oakland Orpheaffl
Proves Best Musical Offer
ing of the Season
/OAKLAND. Sept. I.— The operatic
festival, at the Oakland Orpheqm thi»
week is one of the best musical attrac
tions ever offered at the popular vaude
ville'house. The company comprises 13
able soloists, who . render selections
from the "Fortune Teller," "Tbe Bo
hemian Girl." "It Trovatore" and other
grand operas 'in a manner that be
speaks thetr high artistic accomp^^^
ment. Particularly noticeable is^i^e
work of Elizabetto Rossini, whose
rich soprano voice and interpretation
won instant favor.
Bertha Seiferfs high notes areun
usually* sweet and clear and Henry
Santry's barytone has proved a, draw
ing card. The festival is represented
in three beautifully staged, picturesque
scenes. The first is a gipsy scene, the
second a highway and the last shows
the grand canal at Venice.
"The Squarer," which is presented by
J. C. Xugent and Miss Jule York, is one
of the cleverest sketches that has been
seen in some time. The piece was
written by Nugent himself. 'It Is a
classic in vaudeville.
a Edward Flanagan and Neely Ed
wards, both new comers, were well re^
ceived in their clever singing and
dancing skit, and the Harvey-Dc Vera
trio of dancers give an excellent exhi
bition.
"The Police Inspector" nas been re
tained this week and has proved, a
strong drawing card. J. J. Wllllam3
as the scrubwoman, Scott - Siggtna as
the inspector and John T. Doyle as the
murderer all enact their respective
roles in professional fashion.
Lou Anger* German soldier has alao
been retained and has again been one
of the hits of the bill. Stepp, MelUln
ser and King continue to be favorites,
and Jlnnnie Lucas, the star of the *'Toy
Shop Pastimes." -with Nlmmle. the
clever dancer, conclude a show of. ex
ceptional merit. ,-• ". -\u25a0
