City Attorney Long Replies
With Emphasis on "Yes"
to Mayor Rolph's
Minimum Denomination Is
Fixed in Charter at $10—
Change May Be Made
The opfnlon of City Attorney Percy
V. Long to the effect that bonds of any
denomination, even as low at $10 and
$.0 each, may be sold to raise money
Ihe building of the proposed exten
sion of the municipal railway, was
written in answer to the following in
• quiry from Mayor Rolph:'
Inquiries haye been made of me for
iri bonds of lower.denomination than
$i.<ioo-. -AH .of .the city bonds are of the
oar value of $I.OG\O. Is there any way
whereby any part or all of any issue
could be changed into bonds of smaller j
Mr. Lone, in the beginning of his j
opinion, cites a city charter section
which provides that the ordinance call
• jt>g such special election, as the aequisl
•tion of public utilities, shall set forth
the .purposes for which the election is
. 'called, the estimated cost of each util
?tv proposed, the proposed method and
manner of the payment thereof and that
If it shall be necessary to incur a mv
' iii'cipa-1 indebtedness the ordinance shall
specify that bonds of the city and coun
ty shall .issue for the payment of the
«ost of such utility, or utilities, as Is
•' Bet forth in such ordinance.
NOT LESS I'll VN" *.10
Section 10 provides that the bonds
.Issued under the provisions of this ar
ticle shall be of such form as the su
pervisory in the ordinance calling the
election therefor shall determine. ' The
bonds' so issued shall be issued in de
nominations of not less than $10 and
not. more than $1,000."
Decisions of the supreme court to
show that minor changes can be made
are cited by the cit*- attorney.
The first is that of Derby versus the
city .of Modesto. 104 Cal. 515. which
'.was an action filed by a taxpayer to
en.ioin the levy of a tax for the pur
pose of raising money to pay for bonds
w'lich had been issued by the city and
-•.',,; and paid for.
The next case to be decided by the
supreme court was that of Skinner
versus the city of Santa Rosa, 107 Cal.
•s'. lv where a taxpayer protested to the
city council against their delivering to
a successful bidder certain city bonds.
Hr Long next refers to the case of
Law versus . San Francisco. 144 Cal.
.'•S&i- Here a taxpayer brought action
,i" restrain the city from issuing mv
' niclpal bonds. The bonds were claimed
....to :i, e invalid on account of several
■t. l.leged'. irregularities in the proceed
ings- of the supervisors.
■_ '"The Low case Is of importance,"
says the city attorney, in his opinion,
; ':is. showing the undoubted frame of
ibled of the court to follow the early
l o-rbv • case, unless it can be shown
:. .t hat, an Increase burden may be placed
ou. the taxpayer by changing the num
ber, arid denomination of the bonds."

Refusal of Mrs. Daywalt to Pay
Duties on Fine Hosiery Likely to
Necessitate an Auction Sale .
When nest the United States customs
appraiser holds an auction sale of con
fiscated goods, some dealer in women's
apparel will probably have a chance to
acquire a choice collection of silk ho
siery. For there now lie in the ap
praiser's warehouse heaps and heaps of
the finest silk stockings.
Until they were seized by hard
hearted customs men. these delicate
stockings were the property of Mrs. C.
A Dayvvalt.
'As Mrs. Daywalt indignantly refuses
to reclaim her property and pay three
times the value of the articles to re
deem them, it seems that the stockings
will repose in the appraiser's ware
house until such time as he shall en
hance the revenues of the United States
of America by offering them for sale.

people, of this stnte. tor the very good reason
thut it will reoaire more time and hence more
expense for each person who may travel over

No matter how long you hayc been
tortured and disfigured by itching,
burning, raw or scaly skin humors,
just put a little of that soothing, anti
septic Resinol Ointment on the sore?
and the suffering stops right there!
Healing begins that very minute, and
your skin gets well so quickly you feel
ashamed of the money you threw
away on useless, tedious treatments.
Wherever drugs are sold, you can
be just as sure of finding Resinol
Ointment as court-plaster or a tooth
brush. This is because doctor? have
prescribed it so regularly for the last
eighteen years that every druggist
knows he must keep it constantly in
stock. Trial free; Dept. 8-P, Resinol,
