President of State University
Returns From Visit to
Alumni in the South
BERKELEY, Nov. ,9.— -Benjamin Ide j
Wheeler, president of the University }
of California, and .James K. Moffit, j
president of the Alumni association, re- 1
turned this morning from a swing!
around the southern part of ■ the state, j
in which they visited or organized sev- j
era! alumni "clubs. The president's tour j
was his first visit in an official capacity |
to the graduate organizations. '; •?-.,
. Evidence of the interest stimulated I
is shown by the number of graduates J
who are to attend the big'game Satur
day. The largest alumni attendance in •
the history of Rugby, and perhaps of ;
Intercollegiate sports in the state, is *
assured. '
** " President Wheeler* spoke in high en
thusiasm of his trip, saying: «
>-*• "We arrived at San Luis Obispo ;
Thursday, November 2, with a good
body of alumni at the station to meet ,
.us, "headed by Donald Smith. In the;
, evening we had a dinner, attended by
graduates, and a reception to the larger
public. The next day we visited Santa
Barbara, As at San Luis Obispo, so;
here, a club of alumni was organised
with Charles A. Edwards '82, as presi
dent. Saturday we were in Ventura; :
graduates came from the whole coun
try roundabout; at dinner we had over
40 of them," counting in the husbands
who brought their wives and the wives
who brought their husbands. It was a
very enthusiastic and admirable as
semblage. We are convinced that here
after assemblages should always In
clude the women. At Los Angeles 'we
were received by a committee of the
alumni and entertained at the Country
At San Diego President Wheeler and
Moffitt' were entertained, by the Col
lege Women's club. In -the evening
Wheeler addressed 800 persons. In this
speech he expressed the hope that soon
the* University of California will occu
py the same position in relation to
California as the University of Wis
consin does in that state, where the
experts of the university are the
people's advisers in all matters of pub
lic weal, leaders of the academic and
cultural thought even being called in
consultation with the state executive
officers at regular meetings. Following
the address. President Moffitt of the
alumni called a meeting to form a club.
At Visalia, according to the presi
dent, the spirit of the San Diego meet
ing was again manifested.
Yard Superintendent Wants Job
Given George Knorp
Fire Chief Murphy's assignment of j
, Foreman Machinist George Knorp to
break in the men handling the new [
motor driven apparatus of the depart
ment was upheld by the commission
yesterday. Superintendent Gleason of
the corporation yard suggested to the
commissioners that ? the job logically
should be a part of his duties.
The members of the board agreed
that the chief ought* to run the depart
ment and that Knorp should be kept on
the job. No move was -made, in spite
, of persistent rumors of j ill will toward ;
the chief, to oust Murphy from the i
"command of the department. • i
The commission, informed a com
mittee from upper Sunset that the de
partment would Install a chemical en
gine in the, vicinity of Ninth avenue
and P street as soon as fund« were
voted and the school directors had con
sented to the transfer of one of trie
school lots for the house.
y A number of Glen Park residents
petitioned for more fire protection, and
the chief will look over the ground
and report. •„ '■-.', 77
Battalion Chief Capelli reported that
the "accident on 'October 24, when Fire
men Wills and Harrington were injured
in a buggy collision with .an automo
bile driven by Mrs.? J. D. McCarthy of
2166 Hayes street, was caused by the
cerelessness of Mrs. McCarthy, she not
looking the way, she* was:driving.

The members of this committee.have
made a change in the 7 arrangements

and many "wallflowers." Frequently
this term and other student ' organiza
tions have made protest ; against this

City Council .Orders Reduction
; in Bill for Jurgens'
OAKLAND, Nov.j 9.The city council
passed a resolution today ordering ', the
Peoples* Water ? company to reduce* its
charges on several I buildings owned by
Charles J Jurgens'in; East ; Twelfth street
to * the amount the company Is entitled
to A collect under the city ordinances.
This action was taken on a report by
Consulting ;Engineer J. H. Dockweiler,
who said that the * company.< had " raised
the rate arbitrarily from $1.50 to $8.75
a month.
According to Jurgens', complaint, last
January?the* water company installed a
single' meter for the buildings he owns,
consisting/ of 7 four ? stores ; with 7 four
flats and a detached? cottage. Most of
the buildings, he said, had been empty
since that time and the minimum meter
rate 7of ' $1.50 was only exceeded one
month. 7 . '
7 From June 16 the company has ren
dered a .regular monthly bill ; for $8.75 •
which Jurgens has? refused; to pay.
Jurgens complained to the water com
pany and ;to the city/council, and* in. a
communication ? said: ? ;
?7'l ; am? not the only one who -Is be
ing overcharged or charged .water, rates
for/premises which are': vacant. A great .
many people have spoken to' me about
the I exorbitant charges * made for water
rates 'on their property, as well as va
cant premises." 7 A A 7 *
? The water company refused;to lower
the rate, alleging;that under the water
rate ordinance no allowance for partial
vacancies could \be made. .. v 7
7Dockweiler's report In part * follows:
> "The Peoples' Water company, hav
ing elected to place the premises of
Mr. Jurgens upon ;'a meter basis, , must
supply water at meter rates. The con
sumption for - these premises during the
last four months has in one month
equaled762s cubic feet, ; which is the
quantity of water which . can ; be used
for 11.50 under current ordinance.?.
--■'. "Therefore, 7. viewing the matter
equitably and »in what. I believe-is the
spirit of the ordinance, I find the rate
for the last 5 four months for; these
premises Is 7 the - sum of •.. $1:50 ;a * month,
being the minimum water rate, for . each?
of said months." <
