CIVIC CLUBS START MOVEMENT FOR PUTTING THE CITY'S STREETS IN PERFECT CONDITION BY 1915
LARGE SUMS OF MONEY
NEEDED FOR STREETWORK
Improvement Bodies Advise Bond Issue or Charter
Amendment to Raise Funds for Repaying All
Worn Out Thoroughfares
San Francisco will have as good
streets as any" city in .the world by
1911 if the plans of the civic organi
-atlons are brought to a fruition. The
last week saw the commencement of
a campaign that is sure to result in
the accomplishment of this much
needed improvement.
In the discussions that have taken
place before the meeting of th*» vari
ous organizations the question has been
repeatedly asked what is wrong with
the present system of financing this
work, and why is it that the amount
of work being done is in many in
stances smaller than in cities of one
third the, population? On this
the thought of those, interested in
'■ivlc advancement has been focused
on the work of finding some plan that
will make possible the reconstruction
of the streets of this city within a
•pssonable time. An almost unanimous
opinion seems to prevail among the ci
'izens that are giving the subject of
•v government study, that our present
n of financing these improvements
Ms proven to be defective, and that
arter should be changed in this
jL.arard at once.
m There- have been three plans pro
; >?P'i, all of -which hope to make it
7>ossible to place the streets of the
city in good condition within a short
nme. One ■>( those plans will call for
a l"ij)d issue of between two and three
million dollar.*, the interest and re
demption thereof to be derived from
'Hxes collected from all the property
owners of the city. This plan could
'» 'juried out without amending the
■ barter. The advantage being , that
under this proposal work on the«e
Miry improvements could be
started sooner than under the plans
*ed that will require charter
'iments.
Another plan that lias been proposed
is to so amend the charter that the
n of assessment districts for the
Improvement of the streets by the
T'<~>ard of supervisors will be allowed
by the- fundamental law. TTrider this
r>!an the following system of financing
• work would be followed: An or
• to be passed by the board of
supervisors denning the boundaries of
• h« district; bonds to be issued for rais
ing the necessary revenue payable in
ten years, and drawing , interest at 5
per cent, the redemption of the bonds
and the paymen-t of the interest to be
derived from taxes collected on the
; rnperty within the particular district.
Tho bonds should be issued in denom
inations of from $25 to $200 in order
that the people of the city may buy
them directly from the city: in other
words, the present system of selling
the entire .issue to the highest bidder
be done away with, for it Iβ felt that
(bit would eliminate the difficulty of I
selling the ten year street bonds now
prevalent.
Tfcl* would also give the rity the ad
vantage of paying cash for the work
upon its rompk-tion. It might be said
in this regard that the experience of j
other cities where this rule has been \
followed Is that the contract price of
the work has been at least one-third
!.«■««; than under the old system where
• ■■•ntractor was expected to take
f iese bonds in payment of the work,
of course necessitating his selling them
to individuals or the banks, the brok
erage fees being added to the contract
price, and a little more for good mea
sure.
Still another plan that has been sug
gest M is that the present system of
providing for the cost of renewing the
streets out of money derived from gen
'•rel taxation should be done away
virh and the following plan be I
dopted in its place: One-third of the
coet of renewals to be provided out of
money raised by general taxation, the
:her two-thirds of the cost to be paid
the fronting property on a ten year
■ni plan similar to that proposed in
strict assessment plan. The pro
ts of this plan claim that the
• systera is unjust for the reason
at the property owner in the outly
ing or residence district is forced to
ontinoally pay for the renewal of the
-treets where the heavy traffic is. This
in considered unjust in view of the fact
•hat where the heavy traffic is the
•lieh rentals make the property owners
well able to bear this charge of up
keep.
of all this discussion it is cvi-
that some sohiti/on will be found
'ir-vislng some system that will place
the streets of the city in the condi
tion they should be. Public* spirited
mis realize that the. streets are in
;i bad condition, which must be reme
b«fore 19)5 for the reason that
»r> judge a city by the condition
streets to a great extent. When
great body of citizens realize that
is something wrong: with the
<<i making: ,-». certain class of
prnv#nients the city is in a. fair way
accomplishing rhangos that are so
eeasary for the advancement of the
v.
-an Francisco has evpended during
period since the fire the largo sum I
$6.00*.000 for the repair anrl recon
on of streets, and It ia the opin
f many that the city has not re
* ed the advantage of the expendl
<>t that great sum to the fullest
*\ i*nt.
Phis is not a reflection on the exist
!ty administration, for it is recog
<e<l that the streets are now being
i< paired as well and as cheaply as pos-
Under the present system.
The city government has been criti
-ed in the expenditure of money for
laljfcr in the relaying: of basalt blocks 1
sand foundation. A foundation
for a street is the first necessity ac
cording to all street engineers. The
12,600 a week now being expended by
the city for this work is considered by
many to be money thrown away. Such
streets are a. constant source of ex
pense and it is pointed out that it
would be better to use this money for
the proper construction of only a few
lihf.s of streets rather than using this
for the repair of miles of poor
s lhat will have to be recon
;ed sooner or later.
Inhere are also many proponents of
plan to BO a'hiend the charter
iar various- kinds of streets can be
nd not as now, only asphalt and
■■Uβ reason that great
•nt lias been made in engi
eerine connected with Die construc
f streets in the last few years and
:is felt that San Francisco should
itself of these improvements.
public spirited citizens feel that
ere is no reason that this city should
t have as good streets as Paris by
Iroe of the exposition. What other
"a can do Han Francisco can do
* seems to be their motto.
MlSSfeif CM B
The South Mission Improvement as
'ion at its , last meeting con
<l the matter of police protection
n the district. Upon investigation it
-vRs found that there are 18 policemen
io the watch to cover the district
irom Twenty-ninth street to the
I county line and from Sloat boulevard
to near San Bruno road. This condi
tion prevails in >epite of a provision
of the charter that provides for one
policeman for every 500 inhabitants,
whereas this district has one for about
every 1,300.
The association is also giving seri" re
consideration to the telephone service.
Complaint is made by residents of the
district that many of the telephones
are next to useless on account of the
poor service, while many desiring ,
this service are unable to secure it.
EIKEKA VALLEY CUB
The Eureka Valley Improvement as
sociation passed resolutions at its last
meeting instructing the secretary to
address a letter to the board of educa
tion asking when they would place the
school yard in a fit condition for the
play of the children. This building has
been completed for some time, yet tlie
yard is in a very bad condition, ac
cording to many that addressed the
meeting. The association desires the
grounds to be improved by the plant
ing of lawns, trees and flowers, and is
urging that something be done during
the winter so that the children will
not have to spend their time during
recess avoiding the puddles that are
numerous on the grounds after a rain.
Resolutions were also passed censur
ing the city government for still rent
ing shacks for the housing of school
children at the Dougiass school when
the city has had in its possession the
necessary land for the enlargement of
the building for the last two years.
Many of the members characterized
this action on the part of the city
officials as being a waste of money,
and referred to the impossibility of
the existing of such a condition where
a private enterprise is being carried
out.
SOITH OK CIVIC CE\TKR (MB
The South of Civic Center Improve
ment association will give a social and
dance on Wednesday evening, October
23. at Quintan's hall, 1243 Folsom
street. The object being to bring the
residents of the together,
which it is- hoped will help to create
a get together *pirit in that section
of the city that, will prove of ad
vantage to the district and the city
as a whole.
CIVIC I.EAGIE OF CUBS
The Civic L.eague of Improvement
Clubs has taken on a new activity
since its financial systeni has been
greatly improved and it is announced
that complaints from the different im
provement bodies will be taken up as
soon as they are received.
Communications have been sent out
to all the improvement clubs , ol the
city asking them to pass resolutions
favoring the constitutional amend
ment that has for its object thf mak
ing possible of the consolidation of
San Mateo county with this city or
other territory that may vote in
favor of such a union. In referring
to the importance of this amendment
to this city the communication says:
"The defeat of this ameedment is the
handwriting on the wall for San
Francisco. It is a fact that other
cities are growing faster than we
are."
The communication also calls for vol
unteers to offer their services as
speakers to combat those sent out by
the civic organizations of Oakland to
convince the people of the interior that
this amendment, if passed, will work
an injury to them.
The co"mmittees of the organization
have been working on plans that will
allow the immediate improvement of
the streets and some plan will be
shortly proposed to accomplish that
result.
There will be a special meeting of
] the league in the chambers of the
! board of supervisors tonight to con
sider the proposed constitutional
amendments. Speakers for arid
against these amendments will dis
cuss them, after Which the leitffue will
vote to indorse or oppose some or all
of the measures.
The executive committee of the
league announces the formation of a
lecture bureau that will be at the
I services of the improvement clubs
I with the hopes that it will add to the
interest being taken in civic matters. .
This afternoon the street committee
of the league will hold a conference
with the street committee of the
board of supervisors to see if some
i tiling- can not be done to make the
j bonds issued under the 14 year street
improvement act more saleable. This
is an Important matter and of especial
interest to property owners , in the out
lying districts as on the solution of
this problem will depend the improve
ment of streets in that district. All
metnbers of improvement clubs who
are interested are asked to attend and
express , their opinions.
NORTH BEACH ASSOCIATION'
The Xorth Beach association has
started a campaign for the acquisition
of all the land on Telegraph hill for
park purposes at once by means of a
bond issue. It is the purpose of the,
association to make that historical
spot, the. Oapotoline hill of America.
They are. the same public spirited citi
zens that were successful in bringing
about the construction of the Stockton
street tunnel. No doubt these plans for
the Improvement of Telegraph hill will
soon he brought to a fruition.
At the last meeting of the associa
tion Dr. A. d'Ancona. president of the
board of education, spoke on "Voca
tional Training." He demonstrated
that the present day curriculum of
the .grammar and high schools had the
impractical earmarks of ancient teach
ing. In that it is fashioned for the
very few who pursue higher educa
tion Jn the univereities. His idea was
to substitute natural and applied
sciences for such of the L,atin and
Greet and inapplicable knowledge Im
parted to students, so that boys and
I girls could use what they had learned
in any vocation engaged in. A com
mittee composed oftßaphae! Weill, .r.
A. Britton. Jesse Lilienthal. Mrs.
Hortz, Miss K. Felton. Walter
Macarthur, Henry Payot. Alexander
Russell, A. J. Gallagher. Superintendent
Alfred Roncovieri and Dr. A. d'An
cona was announced to make a study
of this reform.
A delegation asked that the asso
ciation oppose the invasion of the
Chinese west of Stockton street and
the location of the oriental school in
Washington street near Powell street.
The request was indorsed and W. S
Solarl, A. Pieard and Dr. A. Musante
were appointed to aid the petitioners.
COI.DEV GATE VAI.I.EV CLIB
The Golden Gate Valley Improve
ment association has addressed a com
munication to the police commission
protesting against the granting of any
more saloon licenses In the district
bounded by P'ranklln. Stelner, Union
and Lombard streets on the ground that
there are now more than 60 saloons in
the district, and that further licenses
should not be granted owing to the
closeness of the exposition site.
SOITH CENTRAL ASSOCIATION
The South Central Improvement asso
ciation has started a campaign for the
opening of Van Ness avenue from Mar
ket street to Mission between Eleventh
and Twelfth, and its future extension
by the widening of Eleventh street to
Potrero avenue and thence to the county
line. Other street Improvements being
urged are the repaying of Ninth street
from Market to Bryant, and the placing
of additional lights in the district.
Through the efforts of this organization
Stevenson street lias been repaved, re
lighted and opened to Eighth.
The city attorney has been requested
to take immediate steps- , to have the in
junction obtained by E. B. & A. L,

Stone against the board of supervisors
to prevent the removal of their stone
crushers and .spur track revoked. The
association has decided to protest
against the inclusion of the district
bounded by Market, Folsom. Fifth and
Fifteenth streets in the assessment dis
trict for the construction of the Twin
peaks tunnel.
■aMIOH PROMOTION ASSOCIATION
The improvement of conditions on
the Mission road has been nearly com
pleted with the completion of the pav
ing of tfie roadway on the westerly
side of the viaduct north of Silver ave
nue. Conditions are now such that a
clear roadway has been provided for
traffic from Crescent avenue to the
county line.
The board of public works lias
awarded the contract to complete the
Mission street pavement on the east
erly side of ttie causeway and between
Bosworth street and Crescent avenue.
The progress made in the paving of
Mission street at this point has been
especially gratifying to the Mission
people on account of the torn up con
dition of San Jose avenue and the fear
that should rainy weather have been
experienced the heavy traffic into and
out of Ban Francisco county would have
been greatly inconvenienced.
The Mission Promotion association
has received a report from Us commit
tee on public buildings showing the
progress of various municipal buildings
being built with the proceeds of the
190S bond issue
The Patrick Henry school on the
westerly slope of the Potrero hills is
well under way and when completed
will accommodate the children of that
district who had previously been com
pelled to attend in large numbers the
Buena Vista school at some distance
from their homes and west of the vari
ous railroad tracks in that vicinity.
The main group of the San Fran
cisco hospital buildings at Potrero ave
nue and Twenty-second street is about
ready for acceptance and will consti
tute the principal portion of the finest
institution of its kind in the United
States. Excavations are now being
made for the second group of the same
buildings and it is planned to use the
excavated material to fill in several of
the streets between San Bruno road and
Railroad avenue across the marsh lands
that are being rapidly developed Ulto

Neat Design and Good Finish
Shown in Filbert Street
Improvement
A new three story six flat building
on strictly modern lines from the de
signs of William A. Newman, the archi
tect, is nearing completion in the north
side of Filbert street near Laguna. The
owners, Messrs. Werner Brothers, jew
elers, have taken advantage of the pre
vailing low prices among the builders
to get full falue for the money in
vested.
The architect has not attempted an
elaborate building, but has rather
chosen to include all the conveniences
which can be placed in four room flats,
together with an inviting and attractive
front, finished in pebble dash cement,
with cornice tipped with red tile and
basement story of pressed brick. This
has successfully been accomplished
at an expense of less than $8,400.
The new building faces on two
streets, and at the rear overlooks the
exposition grounds at Harbor View.

THOUSANDS GO TO
SEE FOREST HILL
Many Lot Owners Now Planning
to Build Picturesque
Homes
Last Sunday nearly 2.000 persons vis
ited Forest Hill. At one time 8i auto
mobiles could l>o counted on Dewey
boulevard in Forest Hill. Every day
since Sunday the crowds have come to
walk along the winding streets among
the pines. The sales, counting three
days this week, are within a few hun
dred dollars of reaching the $600,00«*
mark. In in interview Robert Newell
of the Newell-Murdoch company, said:
"If any one doubts that San Fran
ciscans are not looking for homes
where they may enjoy the pleasures
and privileges of outdoor life with its
delightful surroundings, let them come
to Forest Hill any day—they will soon
be convinced.
"Of all the hundreds of people that
have visited Forest Hill I have only
found one man that objected to buying
in restricted property, and I afterward
learned that it was because he did not
understand the meaning of the word
restricted.' "
