' THE SAN FRANCISCO GALL,; TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6. 1910 TALCOTTS GRANT A RIGHT OF WAY Southern Pacific Must Pave Street in Return for the Privilege OAKLAND. Sept. s.— After many months of delay, the Southern Pacific company has finally obtained a right of way through the Talcott property, north of East Fourteenth street in Melrose along Bond street, for the ex tension of the Seventh street local line to .San Leandro. Owing to the failure to obtain this right of way, the railroad company stopped several months ago the laying of tracks for the extension. In a deed filed at the coifnty hall of records, J. R. and Cynthia R. Talcott and the Talcott land company grant to the Central Pacific railway, an auxil iary of the Southern Pacific company, the exclusive right of operating a dou ble track road through the Talcott property. But in exchange for this privilege the railroad must pave Bond 6treet, on which the line is. to run.- A provision of the deed compels the railroad company to macadamize be tween the tracks and to lay macadam for 12 feet on either side of the tracks. As the tracks occupy 24 feet,' this will simply- leave a six foot strip for side walks on either side unpaved, as Bond street is 60 feet wide. It -is also pro vided that the railroad must grade the street at its own expense and must deposit the excavated earth in blocks 17, 18, .19- and 21 of the Melrose Heights tract, which are. at present below grade. It is understood -that work will be rushed "now on the: extension of the line, for which more than -a mile* of track has already been laid, as far as Central avenue. Thirty houses in the path of the line^ have yet to be re moved, but it is believed no difficulty will be experienced in their removal. Electric service is rto be provided by the Southern Pacific on this extension, which may form a loop with the Stone hurst branch, or may continue to San Leandro. Hay ward and on to form a loop with .the San Ramon line, mak ing a direct route from Contra Costa county.
