RAPHAEL WEILL BACK TO ENJOY BOHEMIAN JINKS Returns From European Haunts to Spend His Re maining Days in San Francisco RESIDENT OF CITY NEARLY 60 YEARS Glad That the Government Has Decided to Send a Navy Into Pacific Raphael Weill returned yesterday morning from a trip to European cap itals that had lasted several months, snd he expressed the determination last night not to leave San Francisco icafn until he shall have celebrated the sixtieth anniversary of his arrival here, which will be within a few months. "T have many friends in Europe," he said, "and particularly a circle ot very close friends in Paris. Of course, T fove my native country, but San Francisco has been my home for near ly 60 years, and I told my friends in Paris when I was there last that I rould never be satisfied to live any where else than here, "I have been with one firm for 5$ 3 ears now. which I think is a record. The history of San Francisco is also the history of my life and I want to xpend the rest of it right here. "T know that In some ways things are not as good as they might be here rlpht now. But in that San Francisco does n.>t differ from the other big < itfes in the United States and Eu rope. Everywhere T went while I was gone I found it the same. Money is tiebt everywhere In this country and in Europe. But things are going to be better here before lonfr, I am sure." VISITED THE EXPOSITION Mr. Weill said he visited the inter national exposition in Ghent and made inquiries in regard to the Pan ama-Pacific exposition. Some of the juries in Ghent, he said, expressed a willingness to rome to San Francisco in 1915 if they were wanted. But Mr. Weill was not officially representing t ie San Francisco exposition and there fore made no attempt to do any busi ness along that line. Regarding local affairs. Mr. Weill said he had kept himself as well posted as possible. He had had the local papers forwarded to him—"and I read rfiem. too." he added. Asked as to how he stood on the matter of the proposed bond Issue, he said that he had not yet sufficiently studied the matter to bf al io to make a statement. "But I will say this," he continued: "I am not opposed to bond issues as a prln < iple, as some people are. There are who always oppose any Issue of bonds, fearing that It will Increase their taxes. I stand willing to pay more taxes myself if it Is necessary, and where the object Is a good one I am in favor of the issuance of bonds. Anything that will advance the best interests of the city is good, even if it • iocs cost money." DELAYED BY FLOODS Mr. Weill said he was greatly disap pointed that he was delayed In the hitter end of his Journey by floods. His train got in 29 hours late, and he therefore missed the wedding of a friend that.he hoped to attend. "But," he said. "I am here in time to attend the jinks of the Bohemian club that are being arranged by my friend Rufus Steele, and I am glad of that. I wouldn't have missed that occasion for anything." The decision of Secretary of the Navy Daniels that, after the opening of the Panama canal, the home of the Ameri can battleship fleet is to be in the Pacific hailed by Raphael Weill with cri-eat approval. "I have always in ! Isted," he said, "that our battleship fleet sboxiid be kept on this side, where it is most liable to be of service. T <l"n't see why they should have waited f or the opening of the canal, either. What is the ns* of spending all those millions for the fortification of Hono lulu ««nd the construction of a great naval base at Pearl Harbor when the navy of any nation could capture the Islands without any trouble because we have not * single dreadnought In the Pacific? I am glad to see that the au thorities at Washington seem to be waking up to the importance of pro tecting the Pacific coast." $10,000 ASKED FOR TO APPRAISE SPRING VALLEY Itnnrd of Works Takes Preliminary Mep in Contemplated Condemna tion Suit of the City A request that $10,000 be set aside from the moneys provided for in the budget for tbe appraisement of such properties of the .Spring Valley Water company as will be needed for a municipal water supply was made of the board of supervisors hy the board of public works yesterday.
