R.R. COMMISSION
VETOES U.R. PLAN
TO ISSUE NOTES
Application of United Rail
roads Is Officially De
nied in Decision Made
Yesterday
PRESIDENT CALHOUN
IS WARMLY SCORED
Financial Methods of Cor-|
poration Criticised in
Unfavorable Way
• The application of the United Rail
roads for permission to issue and sell
12.350,000 6 per cent five year notes, to
be applied toward the payment and dis
charge of $3,000,000 of the 6 per rent
bonds of the Market street railroad,
and $500,000 of the old Park and Cliff
House line, was refused in a decision
rendered yesterday by the state railroad
commission.
The decision of the commission was
seeping: In its criticism of what it
Termed"the evils of over-capitalizatton."
The document approaches a direct at
tack on the United Railroads for laxity
of management, and scores Patrick Cal
hotua for hi* personal use of the cor-
influence and financial stand-
Ing to create notes that have no place
ss collateral in the sinking , fund of
the company.
The commission, in its official record.
P'-»tp this unvarnished statement on
record:
MILL BE IXABLE TO PAY
"In addition to all that has heretofore
been stated, the applicant is burdened
•with, approximately $40,000,000 of out
standing bonds, and it is conceded that
in 1927, when the issue of the railroad's
4 per cent bonds become due, there will
be $20,009,000 face value of these bonds
■which the company will be unable to
pay at that time, and in view of the
fact that many of the important fran
chises of the company will expire with
in a few years after 1929, it can not
be said that the financial condition of
the applicant Is sound, unless it be
shown that all of its outstanding obli
gations not only can, but will be paid
et maturity."
The commission states that the bond
holders must rely upon the sinking
fund 'provided for in the trust deeds,"
and this sinking fund, according to the
commission, Is not what it should be.
FINDINGS CONCURRED IN
The findings of the commission were
concurred in by President John M.
Eshleman, Commissioners - H. D. Love
land, Alexander Gordon, Max Thelan
and Edwin Edgerton. William M. Ab
bott appeared for the United Railroads,
and Goodfellow, Eels & Orrick for Rol
11ns & Sons, bond brokers. E. P. E.
Troy represented the Public Ownership
association.
The commission's report deals with
the promissory notes of offices of the
company as' follows:
"Aβ to the $20,000 promissory note of
Mr. Calhoun, there does not appear to
he any security back of it, except the
personal responsibility of the maker,
and this, of course, is not a proper
security to be found in a sinking fund.
It is stated that this note has Finre
been eliminated from the sinking
funds.
"In addition to the above, we find
notes receivable, as shown by a minute
entry of January 25, 1912, in a report
made by the same directors as above
noted, the following:
SOME \OTES RECEIVABLE
"Of United Railways Investment
company's serial notes, $56,080.26, ma
turing August 15, 1914, and August 15,
1915, respectively, secured by 801
shares of first preferred capital stock
of United Railroads of San Francisco,
with dividend warrant No. 9, and all
subsequent warrants attached.
"Promissory notes of San Francisco
Railway and Power company, $703,000,
dated August 24, 1909, payable on de
mand, interest at B per cent per an
num (interest paid to June 30, 191J ).
pf(~ur»d by 970 San Francisco Electric
Railway 3 per r-ent mortgage bonds,
of which 804 bonds are rehypoth
f -~ated."
The San Francisco Railway and
Power company is a subsidiary of the
United Railways Investment company.
• report further says:
NOTHING TO SHOW VALUE
"There is nothing to show the value
of these notes, and in view of the
flfipo relationship of the makers of
these notes and the United Railroads,
evidence Iβ necessary to show that they
are something more than In effect
promises of the gentlemen in control of
theso companies to pay themselves.
"In the minutes of May 25, 1910, it
appears that four years' back salary
was voted to Patrick Calhoun, presi
dent of the United Railroads of San
Francisco, in the sum of $75,000 a year,
or a total of $300,000. No explanation
is made of this Item, but it at once
suggests the necessity of a thorough
investigation in order to determine the
items claimed by applicant as operating
t< xpenses of the United Railroads over
series of years.
This investigation is particularly
necessary in view of the claims made
by the officials of applicant that its
net earnings, after deducting operating
expenses, have been ample to provide
for sinking fund requirements, pay in
terest on obligations, dividends on the
first preferred stock of $350,000 a year,
and leave a surplus. Of course, the
question of whether or not such a net
earning has been made depends, among
other things, upon the character of the
items going to make up the operating
expense account."
TRUST DEEDS NOT COMPLIED WITH
Reduced to brevity, the commission's
findings have it that the provisions of
the applicant's trust deeds with refer
ence to the establishment of sinking
fund reserves has not been complied
with; that the United Railroads has ex
changed with its owners its own prom
ises to pay and has set them up in an
account as sinking fund investments;
that a fictitious surplus, or profit and
loss account, has been created; that
instead of setting up a heavy reserve
to aid in retiring bonds which it now
Kt-eins the company will be unable to
pay at maturity, the company is con
tinuing to pay out dividends.
With reference to the "back salary"
of Patrick Oalhoun, the commission
says: "No explanation is made of this
item, but it at once suggests the neces
sity of a thorough investigation in or
der to determine the items claimed by
the applicant as operating expenses of
the United Railroads over a series of
years."
Quoting directly from the report of
the commissioners the findings are: ■
SKQ I KITIES IX SINKING FUXD
"The commission states that it finds
also that the item "Cash invested in
for sinking fund" in the
amount of $4,062,518.30, is credited to
profit and loss account, or surplus.
•This seems to be the regular prac
tice of applicant with regard to its
sinking funds, and in essence means
jiiat having created a reserve for the

(Spuria! to The Call>
PAIiO ALTO, Feb. s.—John A. Brit
ton of the Pacific Gas and Electric
company has suggested a plan whereby
the city can take over the local dis
tributing lines and business of the
company within the municipal limits.
Britton broached his plan yesterday
at a meeting of the corporation with
the members of the Palo Alto board of
public works. The meeting was held
for the purpose of discussing a pro
posed ordinance requiring all wires
carrying more than 5,000 voltage to be
carried underground.
The matter was refeired to En
gineers Downing and Lisberger of the
company -and City Engineer Byxbee
and City Electrician Youens.

interesting program has been arranged.
sinking funds, it was Immediately
taken out again and p.it In surplus, and
may have been used for purposes
foreign to the sinking fund."
NOTES TRADED FOR CASH
The commission finds further that a
transaction was carried out by which
the United Railway Investment com
pany turned over to the United Rail
roads its convertible gold debentures
to the amount of $1,229,000, and that
the United Railroads gave in exchange
to the investment company Its notes
to the amount of $1,229,000. In the
transaction it was provided that the
president of the Unltefl Railroads
could turn the notes of the investment
company to the sinking funds of the
underlying companies of the United
Railroads.
The commission says of this:
"This is a very dubious transaction.
In effect the United Railroads gives
its notes in the sum of $1,229,000 to the
holder of its stock, the United Rail
ways Investment company, and the
United Railways Investment company
in return gives its notes or debentures
in the same amount of $1,229,000 to the
United Railroads. Ttye United Rail
roads then turns these debentures of
the United Railways Investment com
pany into the sinking fund.
"The testimony of Mr. Black given
at the hearing to the effect that this
$1,229,000 went into additions and Im
provements properly chargeable to
capital account is not borne out by the
facts, since It appears that instead of
going into additions and improvements
it went in the shape of promissory
notes into the sinking fund."

The following official dispatch has
been issued:
'"The enemy, part of whose forces are
concentrated in the vicinity of Galli
poli. sent a regiment Tuesday from
Kadikeui to Kayak, where one of our
detachments is stationed. An engage

troops withdrew toward Bulalr, but
the enemy was unable to pursue them.
"Another force of the enemy ad
vanced and occupied Myriophyto, on the
coast of the sea of Marmora, which is
defended only by a few gendarmes.
"The sloop Zoaf has inflicted serious
losses on a force of the enemy advanc

the south of Myriophyto). This force,
was unable today to advance beyond

WILSON READY TO WORK
ON INAUGURAL ADDRESS
Brrnn. McAdoo and Brandeis Believed
to Be Sure of Positions In Cabinet
of the IVext President
(Special Dispatch to The Call)
TRENTON, N. J., Feb. s.—Although
President elect Wilson will begin the
preparation of his inaugural address
tomorrow with the personnel of his
cabinet as much in the dark as ever,
so far as any announcement from him
Is concerned, it was generally accepted
here today that these three men had
been picked, at least tentatively, for
important places in the cabinet of the
new administration:
William J. Bryan of Nebraska, Will
iam G. McAdoo of New York, Louis D.
Brandeis of Massachusetts.
Texas will be one of the states
favored with a cabinet place because of
the determined stand for Wilson's nom
ination made by its delegates to the
Baltimore convention.

HIGH FRENCH OFFICIAL
AND NURSE MURDERED
Edward Peltier of Depart
ment, of Justice and At
tendant Slain
PARIS. Feb. s.—Edoard Peltier, a
high official of the French department
of justice, was murdered in his resi
dence here today. A woman nurse, who
was attending him, was also killed.
The double murder is believed to have
been committed by an uncaptured ac
complice of the gftng of automobile
bandits whose trial is now going on
here.
It is supposed that the crime was In
tended as an act of vengeance and
warning.
Peltier was formerly chief of the bu
reau of pardons at the ministry of jus
tice, but has been in ill health for some
time. He was a man of considerable
wealth.
He was found strangled in a chair in
his library. The nurse's body lay In
another room, where she had, from all
appearances, been hacked pieces with
an ax.
An investigation by the police of the
young woman's past has given rise to
the theory that she and the murderer
were associated with the "demon chauf
feur" Bonnot and his gang. It is
thought she admitted the murderer to
the house, and, he, after strangling Pel
tier, made an end of the sole witness-
About $1,000 in cash was stolen.
CRESS CAREY ON TRIAL
Witnesses In Case Tell Damaging
Stories of Defendant
(Special Dispatch to The Call)
NAPA, Feb. s.—At the trial of Cress
Carey on a charge of murdering Fred
Neunschwander important testimony
was developed in the superior court to
day. Ralph Marcum, Carey's room
mate, said that at 10:30 o'clock on the
night of shooting and after it, while
he was in bed. Carey appeared and
said: "Ralph, I am In trouble and am
going away." Marcum replied, "Will
you write?" and Carey said, "No, I
can't." Carey then disappeared for a
week, but finally surrendered. Marcum
said that November 27 he missed his
revolver. Other witnesses showed that
Marcum's revolver was used by Carey
in shooting Neunschwander on the
night of November 26, near Huichica
bridge.

STATE MAY SUE
FOR PROTECTION
OF LAKE TAHOE
Water Commission Urges
Action in Federal Su
preme Court Against
Nevada
RIGHTS TO TRUCKEE
RIVER ARE INCLUDED
United States Law Relative
to Power Sites Declared
Inadequate
SACRAMENTO. Feb. s.—Action
against the state of Nevada in the
United States supreme court for the
protection of the waters of Lake Tahoe,
Is recommended in the report of the
state water commission issued today.
The report says:
"We believe that immediate action
should be taken by this state to protect
its Interests in the waters of Lake
Tahoe and, therefore, recommend the
institution of a suit against the state
of Nevada in the supreme court of the
United States for the purpose of hav
ing the water of Lake Tahoe and the
Truckee river duly apportioned in ac
cordance with the decision of the Kan
sas vs. Colorado case.
ELECTRIC COMPANY INVOLVED
"In addition to the bringing: of this
suit, we believe that complaint on be
half of the state should, also be filed
against the Truckee General Electric
company, to restrain it from storing
flood waters of the lake. The im
portance and necessity of instituting
this suit can not be too strongly em
phasized in order that the rights of the
state of California may be fully pro
tected."
The federal law relating to the dis
position of water power sites is at
tacked as totally Inadequate.
The report states that "the power ot
revocation without compensation has
caused great alarm in the eyes of capi
tal, and rightfully."
HETCH HETCHY CASE CITED
It adds:
"The confidence that the power to
revoke permits would not be abused
by the head of a department was dis
pelled by the action of a former secre
tary of the Interior in calling upon the
city of San Francisco (which had been
granted a permit under the act for its
municipal supply in Hetch Hetchy), to
show cause why the permit should not
be canceled. This action was taken re
gardless of the fact that the city of San
Francisco had complied with all the
terms of the permit."
Considers Water Powers
WASHINGTON, Feb. s.—Conflicting
claims of the federal and state govern
ments, to control over water powers
situated within the states, marked the
opening of the debate in the senate
today over the Connecticut river dam
bill through which it is proposed to es
tablish the principle of federal control
of water power.
An agreement was made for a vote on
the bill on the legislative day of Feb
ruary 11; but it is expected it will be
several weeks later than that when the
vote actually Is taken. Senator Burton
of Ohio, leader of the faction in the
senate, favoring control by the gov
ernment over the rates and charges of
water powers, defended the measure to
day and will resume his speech to
morrow.
"The time will come when there will
have to be national supervision over
these water power rates, just as there
is over railroad rates," said Senator
Burton. "It will be necessary to re
gard water, as well as , land, as an
asset of the nation which must be con
trolled as to promote the general wel
fare and as far as possible afford equal
opportunity."
Objections to the alleged Invasion of
state rights were made by several sen
ators.
Senator Works of California Insisted
that states alone should have the right
to supervise and fix water power rates.
SACRAMENTO FIRE REPORT
Furnace and Poor Department Leader
ship Blamed for St. Nicholas Blase
SACRAMENTO, Feb. s.—After exam
ination of witnesses in the St. Nicholas
fire investigation today. the special
committee of the city commission has
traced the direct cause of the flre to the
furnace. It is fed by oil burners re
cently installed and of the operation of
which the proprietor and employes of
the apartment house were more or less
ignorant. Testimony showed that the
flames had eaten their way through the
flimsy structure with great rapidity and
that the flre department was handi
caped by lack of men or company
leadership.

DIGEST OF LAWS
TO BE PREPARED
FOR LAW MAKERS
Solons, in Recess, Will Be
Able to Scan Condensed
Summary of 4,000
Bills
SACRAMENTO, Feb. 5.—A booklet
containing: a digest of each of the
nearly 4,000 bills introduced in the
legislature during the last 30 days will
be upon the desk of every member of
both houses when the senate and as
sembly reconvene March 10. if plans
laid today by Secretary of State Frank
C. Jordan do not go awry.
Part of his office force was set to
work today classifying and studying:
the bills, which are to be segregated
into about 30 classes, and, as fast as
one classification is completed, It will
be given out for publication. Copies of
the completed pamphlet will be avail
able for general distribution.
Some of the more important classi
fications will be taxation, appropria
tion, flsh and game, labor, revision of
civil and criminal code and procedure,
creation of new commissions, normal
schools, the University of California,
anti-alien land ownership and Asiatic
exclusion, public morals, reclamation
and drainage and harbor legislation.
A great sigh of relief went up to
day from the few legislators still In
town when they heard of Secretary
Jordan's plans. Some who had counted
the bills over on their fingers already
had estimated that even If they perused
100 bills a day during the 30 day re
cess they would have to leave 1,000
unread if they answered the rollcall on
March 10.
More proposed legislation dealing
with fish and game has been Introduced
at the present session of the legisla
ture than on any other subject, ex
cepting, perhaps, amendments to the
civil, penal and civil procedure codes.
Scarcely a third as many fish and
game bills have been introduced In the
senate as have found their way Into
lower house files.
Legislative chambers In the capitol
practically were deserted today for the
first time since January 6. Activity
was confined to packing up books and
papers to forward them to the members
who had left the previous day for their
homes.
