EVENTS IN THE COUNTIES BORDERING ON THE BAY OF SAN FRANCISCO
HARBOR PROJECT
PUT UNDER WAY
Board of Works Lets Contract
for Development of Key
Route Basin
Bond Money Will Be Used to
Create Docks and Manu«
fscturies Sites
OAKLAKD, Dec. 14. — The greatest
municipal harbor proj^rt in the history
of the Pacific coast was begun, by the
beard of public works this morning In
letting a contract to the San Francisco
quarries company for the construction
of the rock retaining waJl along the
n»w bulkhead line, which will serve as
:t <iuay wall in the Key Route basin
and as the margin of the 400 acres of
water front land to be created for the
< ity by reclamation. The amount of
t!i<* contract is f 47,450.
The work provided by this contract
s a small part of the whole project^
Thf greater portion was put under way
v/iien the board directed Secretary J.
VV. Xclson to advertise for bids for
Vif dredging of a channel, the material
removed from the bay in making deep
v.atcr to be u*ed for reclamation of the
Eiea back of the proposed retaining
wall. The dredgers will work up to
the rock wall, providing a minimum
<lepth of 30 feet along the whole 7.000
feet frontage which the wall will make
in t.'se Key Route ba*ln. In the dredg
ing and th« reclamation of manufactur
les land the city will expend, accord
ing to City Engineer Turner's estimate.
tr.r.0.000. To defray the whole cost of
the Key Route basin development the
municipality has the funds in the treas
ury or at command out of the recent
bond issue for harbor improvement.
JBtBAAS IXLAXD IIARDOR
The project means the creation of an
lr.Lm.j harbor on the east bay shore'
equal in areu to many international!
tra<3e harbor*. The city will own abso
lutely the quay wall facing the basin
on three sides, and the wall will be
constructed *<> that pieis may be added
in future years if required by com
iierce, thus trebling the dockage space.
Back of the Quay waU will I.c land
• .-eated by the city, with streets In
tersecting, accessible to three trans
continental railroads through switching
farintles which the city will provide.
Thlf- property will be worth f6.000,000
when filled and unimproved. The bed
"f the hay to the bulkhead line be
!"ngs to the state; the next legislature
will be aske<j to deed the property in
lee pimple to the city.
The completion of the project as it
now is proposed means the develop
ment of wharfing space extending 7,000
i-et around the shore of the Key Route
1 ashi, over which the city will be in
undisputed possession. Municipal
wharves will line the south shore of
the basin, formed by the Southern Pa-
Hfir pier, and the rast shore, formed by
the proposed retaining wall. Along
the north will be the docks to con
struct which the Key Route interests
hare obtained from the city a fran
chise.
DEVKiiOPMEarT or iias'ix
The development of the basin as
planned and being carried out by the
city is in strict accordance with the
v «juir'ements laid^down by the ' war
Oeiiartment of the federal government.
T'«at department, on recommendation
of the harbor line board of army en
, v !ncers in charge, of San Francisco bay.
* gav< the city permission to fill out to
a point I'.OOO feet west of the old bulk
.J: 1 . 3d Tine. This made possible the crea
tion •if the 400 apres of water front
i-'vd. The department gave permission
for iiie Key Route to fill solid its pier,
v.-hlrli will protect the dredged channel
fi-oai shoaling by the silt from the
Sacramento river systrm. The require
meat was that the work should be done
<>n tilans approved by the army en
*rin«ers, commenced within one year
an.l completed within six. The plans
draxvn under the direction of City En
gtijeer Turner have been approved by
Colonel John Bi.ldle, U. S. A.. In charge
<>f rivers and harbors, as well as by
Colonel W. H. Ileuer. consulting en
jrire^r for the city. As for the other
f^lfral requirements tlie'city'is-com
r.KiT-ing work within a- few months
after t!ie permit was given. The pro
;°-1 wjll be completed well within the
fix year limit,
< ITVS PLAN'S SAXCTIOXED
Tiiis method of utilizing the Key
llcute basin for municipal water fronJX
ape was conceived by the present board
of public works when it* was seen
clearly that the negotiafT&ns with the
Southern Pacific company would make
aV'Solut* the city's control of Its har
bor. Mayor Frank K. Mott and City
Engineer Turner took the municipal
ity's cause before the army engineers
in charge, with the result -that the
city's plans were sanctioned In full by
the war department. The mayor car
ried on all dealings with the Key Route
and Southern Pacific companies, on the
\u25a0outcome of, which <lependeJ the. project.
Turner prepared detaijed plans which
liaye been approved, and the project
is now in such shape that Jt may
I.c carried through without any
Uelay end without* any expense
which the city has not the money to
meet. The western Water front pro
ieot, as now under way. Is regarded bj'
engineers as of far greater Importance
to the city than it was even when the
harbor bonds were voted. It is a more
comprehensive scheme at the same cost.
Such is the view taken by Colonel
Hruer, the consulting engineer, who
iias said that the city will obtain
through the project an ' unsurpassed
fiarbor at minimum cost.
\O DELAY I.V WORK \
"There will be no delay in complet
*-.pr the work," said Mayor Mott. "The
""administration has its plans con.-j»:«!rf.»
anil the city had already provided the
money. The contract to be let for
oredfrinc: and reclaiming the land, at
ab<Mit $250,000, will be a recorQ in
"municipal harbor work on the coast.
The project means that- we will obtain
» great -deep water harbor with, un
equaled land for manufactory sites,
all owned by the city. That means that
business will Burely ; come here, for_ the
-!ty will be able to lease'land fronting
"j an oceanic harbor, with railroads" In
access, at rates which will attract big
business."
In connection with the city work in
the basin the Key Route enterprise of
filling the pier, dredging a channel and
reclaiming land back 'of that, the city
is. to create will proceed. That corpo
ration will spend' ssoo,ooo; on Its "proj
ect, aside from the" construction , of
piers adjoining the Key Route ferry
slip.

be in readiness for the summer en
campment. Now there are only four
companies, of which Company N is the
banner organization.
The first official business done by
Archbishop Riordan on his~return re
cently from Europe was to appoint
Rev. Father Collins as spiritual .ad
viser of the league, consisting now of
four companies, three in San Fran
cisco, and the league band. Plans for
upbuilding of the league have been
laid out and the meeting last night
was the first of a number intended to
Increase the strength of the league.

DALTON CLEARED
BY GRAND JURY
Unanimous Vote declares ihe
County Assessor to Be In=
nocerit of Charges
' OAKLAND, Dec. 14.- — County Assessor
Henry P. Dal ton -was exonerated by the
grand jury, whioh took r a vote today
and decided unanimously that the
charges preferred/against, him ;by Les
lie Blackburn and .Frank Shay had\not
been proven. ; - ' - r l''f ..'/\u25a0:..
Blackburn began his campaign
against Dalton just, before-the primary
election, in which Dalton was success
ful. He produced a number of checks
that represented payments of large
sums made by him to Dalton and. al
though he would not, say what these
payments represented, he -. intimated
that they were collections he had made
for the assessor for Improper purposes.
Blackburn was formerly. Dalton's clpso
adviser. \u25a0 ' •'• • \u25a0 -\u25a0 --,\u25a0•'
Dalton said the checks represented
loans that Blackburn had made' him.
When Blackburn appeared before the
grand Jury he was evasive In' his an
swers and pbsitively refused to make
any statement of transactions between
himself and Dalton that had occurred
In the last three years that could be
brought within the/statute of limita
tions. ' '
- Equally unsatisfactory to the % grand
jury was the testimony given by Frank
Shay, Dalton's former depujty. Shay, at
the time of. the primary election,- said
that Dalton had regularly collected $25
a month of his salary for. a long time.
He reiterated this -story; before the
grand jury, but he. coujd. not substan
tiate it. All of Dalton's' other deputies
said that no such custom as Shay had
described was ever prevalent ' in ; the
assessor's office, and they testified that
they. had never given him-any part of
their salaries.

HANDCUFFED THIEF

OAKLAND, Dec. 14. — Using the hand
