Board Names Charles Beardsley
and J. H. Dockweiler Repre
sentatives at Hearing
OAKLAND, Nov. 18.—Resolulons fa
voring Hetch Hetchy as the source of
municipal water supply for San Fran
cisco and against the continued use of
the waters in Niles canyon for that
purpose were adopted by the board of
supervisors today. The resolutions,
with those passed by the united
Chambers of Commerce of Washing
ton township, will be forwarded to the
secretary of the interior. Another set
of resolutions named Assistant City
Attorney Charles Beardsley and J. H.
Dockweiler, water expert for the % city
of Oakland, as representatives of Ala
meda county at the hearing to be held
next Monday.
The resolutions were introduced by
Supervisor D. J. Murphy of Livermore.
Murphy said that 16,000,000 gallons of
water were being taken daily from
Niles canyon for use in San Francisco,
and'that plans were under way for the
diversion of a greater supply. This
Murphy declared to be a serious loss
to the agricultural, manufacturing and
grazing industries of the county.
That the adaptation of the Hetrh
Hetchy supply to the needs of San
Francisco would free the waters of
Niles creek for use in Alameda county
was the opinion of the board.
The resolutions of the Washington
county bodies were approved by offi
cials of the Chambers of Commers at
Niles, Irvington, Newark. Centerville,
Decoto and Mission San Jose.

Result of Special Election Will
Decide Fate of Proposed
Harbor Scheme
RICHMOND, Nov. 18.-—A special elec
tion will be held tomorrow on the ques
tion of a bond issue of $1,170,000, the
money to be used on preliminary har
bor improvement. A campaign In favor
of the project has been made for sev
eral weeks, and it is believed by the
proponents of the project that the
bonds will carry. A majority of two
thirds is required.
The money derived from the bonds
is to be used in the purchase of land,
in driving a tunnel through the Potrero
hills to reach the western end of the
harbor, In the construction of bulk
heads and in the installation of two
modern wharves, one 550 feet long, the
other 535 feet long.
large: area required
The land to be acquired totals SO2
acres, 166 acres of which are to be
used for wharves. Two hundred and
seventy-three acres have been deeded
to the government and 363 acres will
be reclaimed for factory sites. The re
claimed land will be worth $726,000 for
factory sites, and this will nearly off
set the cost of buying the land, building
the wharves and constructing the bulk
heads, which will total $730,000. *
The wharves will be of the most
modern construction and will be abso
lutely fireproof. One will be at the
entrance to the channel of the inner
harbor* and the other at Kills landing.
The bulkhead work will consist of
15,000 feet, which is estimated to last
from 15 to 20 years.
The tunnel through the Potrero hills
will be 725 feet long and will be lined
with concrete. T*is tunnel and the
road to be built In connection will al

end of the harbor, where large vessels
will land. The road will be 64,000 feet
long, 60 feet wide and paved with con
In addition to the work which this
city hopes to do with the bond issue,
the United States government will
spend $1,000,000 in dredging the chan
nel and in the erection of retaining
walls to prevent their filling up. This,
it is believed, will give Richmond one
of the finest harbors on the coast.
Engineers from the United States
war department suggested many of
the ideas to be carried out. and County
Surveyor P. A. Haviland recently ren

pointed out by the engineers.

enthal Ready for Jury
NEW YORK, Nov. 18.—The last word
for and against the four gunmen on
trial for the murder of the gambler
Herman Rosenthal, was said today
when counsel made their appeals to
the jury for conviction and acquittal.
Tomorrow their fate will be deliv
ered into the hands of the Jury.
The four defendants. "Qyp the
Blood." "Lefty Louie," Frank Clroflco
and "Whitey" Lewis, heard themselves
characterized by District Attorney
Moss as "the hands which held the
instruments of death—the hands of the
body of which Rose, TVebber and Val
lon were the brains and Lieutenant
Charles Becker the will."
By their attorney, Charles c. F.
Wahle, the defendants were pictured
as men who had been criminals, but
who were innocent of this crime—the
%'ictims of tbe testimony of "the men
who really killed Rosenthal, Rose,
Webber, Vallon and Schepps."

Ordinance Is Introduced Whicfi
Provides for Regulation of

OAKLAND, Nov. 18.—On the recom
mendation of Chief of Police Petersen,
an ordinance was introduced by R C.
Turner, commissioner of public health
and safety, in the city council today,
and given its first reading, which is
aimed at reducing the motorcycle acci
dents in Oakland. The ordinance was
prepared by B. F. Woolner, city attor
ney, and is the result of much agita
tion growing out of a series of acci
dents In recent months.
The ordinance provides that all own
ers of motorcycles must pay a muni
cipal license of $2 a year and a de
scription of each machine must be filed
with the license inspector. In addition
to a state license each machine must
carry in the rear a city license number,
which will consist of figures three
inches high on a black background.
All motorcycle dealers must have a
license for each make of machine which
is rented or used in any way They
are required to have duplicate num
bers for machines in use, at the rate
of 50 cents for each machine.
OAKLAND, Nov. 18.—The Locke Con
struction company was ordered today
to continue with the construction of the
bridge at Niles until its contract ex
pires December 1. It will also be held
responsible for the provision of the
temporary crossing for foot and vehicle
traffic during the winter months.
A. C. F. Locke, head of the company,
and his attorneys and engineers sub
mitted to the board of supervisors the
question of postponing work until after
the high water of the winter. Falling
behind in the contract, the work on the
piers and abutments is in such a state
that if false work were put up now
for the concrete arches ,a sudden flood
would carry it away and damage the
As the connty has paid $30,000 for
the work on the piers, County urveyor
Haviland urged consideration of the
chance of possible loss if the work is
carried on through the winter.
Supervisor D. J. Murphy of Liver
more told Locke today that the con
struction company was at fault for the
delay. Murphy said he would not con
sider at this time a request to extend
the contract until next summer. He
said that provision must be made for
foot and vehicle passage across the
creek during the winter.
Haviland suggested that it might be
possible to put in only part of the to
tal width of the arches, and in this
may safely carry foot traffic across. A
special meeting of the board may be
held this week for further considera
tion of the problem.
