OAKLAND WINS BIG TIDELAND VICTORY Mayor Mott Says Action of the Legislature Clears Way for Great Harbor OAKLAND, March ;s.~Telegrams were recdved by Mayor Frank K. Mott . today from Assemblymen F. M. Smith and R. J. Callahan from Sacramento rtating that the Kast Oakland tideland bill had passed both houses and that •,'!l* western water front bill would also j be passed. ' ,C? - The Last Oakland tideland bill re- Ftoreg to tho public*;control of a water front extension of one and a half miles and space of land consisting of [65 acres. The water front Is along the estuary east of the north arm.. The ncreaße is now occupied by manufac turing owners, who have given up their claim to ownership in the land in.place of leases at nominal rentals. The western water front bill com prises one and a half miles of water I frcr.t and 400 acres in the Key Route basin. With the addition of this terri tory all obstructions to tho normal de velopment" of the Oakland harbors have I been removed, and Oakland secures several miles of water front and very valuable tideland property. ■:"-,-.'.'. ft Mayor. Mott. in discussing the victory. te.Ui today: "This is a final settlement of our water front difficulties. I am positive that Governor Johnson will afilv his signature and make the bill a law. Thin will give us absolute con trol from Uvft tidal canal on the east to tiie boundary line of the city, and all of the water front. It Is what we have been fighting for for years, and there is nothing to prevent us from realizing our dreams of a great harbor system for Oakland. "Whiie we had the wharflng out rights to our water front, we did not control the tidelands. and these two bills will give us that. There can be no question of our rights, and as long as tlie city keeps faitli with the people the state can not and will not interfere in any way. It is a great victory tot Oakland, and permits of great develop ment in both the western water front properties, including the reclamation of Key Route basin lands and the East -Oakland basin tidelands."

Mrs. "Walter Janke of . Ban Francisco contributed vocal selections, accompanied by Miss . Florence Nachtrieb. Doctor Carson | said in part: "There are two great realms for hu i man achievement realm of science j and the realm of art. Each is distinct j from, the other. That which impels the worker in one realm la the love of knowledge: the desire to know truth; what lias been, is and shall be, accord ing to law. iln the other realm the worker is inspired by a desire, not to know what and why and. how. as an end, but to do; not to discover and record immutable laws, but to create. "The scientist can not pursue his re search alone, for lie must have tools and appliances, which are invented and made by the artist. The artist, to reach the highest possibilities of cre ation, must know the laws of his art. He must depend upon the scientist for these laws, or himself turn scien tist long enough to possess them. These two principles of knowing and doing are closely interwoven in life."
