Richmond Grasps Chance
Votes Bonds for New Harbor
First Effective Step Taken for $1,170,000
Project: Industrial and Shipping Center
Predicted for Future
RICHMOND, Nov. 19.—Pinning- their
faith on harbor development, which la
expected to bring extensive shipping
and manufacturing: expansion* the
people of Richmond today gave a favor
able vote on the bonds for the con
struction of the Inner harbor and the
tunnel. The total amount is $1.170,000.
The progressive spirit here is shown
by the large percentage of "the total
vote polled, there being 2,645 ballots
cast out of 4,800 registered voters.
There were 2,842 votes cast for the
inner harbor project and 291 against,
and 2,202 for the tunnel and 416 in op
i position.
There has been great enthusiasm
about the prepositions, and though the
usual campaign was carried on, there
need have been no doubt about the
result from the time the electlonl was
called. The people -want to build a
large city, and they feel that the new
harbor facilities and the industrial and
warehouse land that will be acquired
will develop Riehamond as nothing else
could do it.
The main harbor proposition, the In
ner harbor, has been developed by the
Richmond industrial commission promo
tion organization in the last two years
and brought to a successful culmina
tion with the aid of the eitiaens in gen
eral. s
The tunnel project was put forward
by the people of the western part of
the city to give a direct outlet through
the hills to the outer water front and
secure a landing especially for local

University of California in promotion
of agriculture In the state will be made
tomorrow by Dr. Thomas Forsyth Hunt,
who will be invested with the office of
dean of the college ot agriculture at
the dedication of the new adminis

Doctor Hunt was engaged to make

Statewide Tneasurew,- in anticipation of

Richmond's tax rate today totals only
72 cents and with the possible 30 cents
on the $100* that will be added by the
bonds, making $1.02, It will still have
a remarkably low rate. It is eetl
mated that the harbor will pay the in
terest on tTie bonds when it Iβ opened.
Beaide extensive deep water ship
ping , the new harbor will provide for
use immediately on Its completion 363
acres of land adjoining the docks which
land will be worth vastly more than
the $1,975,000 the tunnel and harbor
will cost, including the government ap
propriations. The government will do
the dredging. Richmond can afford to
lease this land on the basis of a valu
ation of about a third that of larger
cities' about the bay and while attract
ing enterprises by reason of this, still
derive a revenue sufficient to repay the
expense o fthe improvements.
The harnor improvements will give
Richmond the finest of shipping facil
ities and are expected to make the city
grow with great rapidity. It is be
lieved the developing effects will be
felt from this time and continue fight
along. The assurance that the arbor
projects are to be carried out will at

Richmond has a location of unusual
advantage. A big start as a manufac
