More Gasoline Cars Here
Than Arty Other State
in Union
United States Buyers Spend
More Than $750,000
Daily for Motors
California now. holds the record for
the largest number of gasoline auto
mobiles of- any state In the union.
This state has registered 108,156 ma
chines, and is Tier lh the lead of all Its
slater states. New York In the. regis
tration list '4s .given credit with the
largest number of all classes) pi auto
mobiles solely'-because of -its'-exces
sive'number, of electrics, 5,610, to Cal
ifornia's 4,158.
But even with twice as many elec
trics, the Empire state Is steadily los
ing the -m-otor leaderstp. A large num
ber of'experts are of the belief today
that California Is actually In the lead.
Figures Which, have been carefully
compiled give this state a gain of
20,000 cars from January 31 to July 1.
New York:in that time increased Its
total oni-y S.OOO. New York on July 1
was credltzd with 110,618 cars, a lead
ef only 2%462. .-.
It Is brought out by the experts
who have .co.mpiled the figures that In
the 181 days between January 30 and
July 1 th£. number of cars in use had
Increased '14-7.163, making the grand
total for the United States 1.180,240.
This Increase made a dally average of
SI 3.5 cars. Using $1,000 as the aver
age value, multiplication shows the
daily investment In motor cars was
more -than. f.t50',000.
"Undoubtedly the Golden state rep
resents the grand hope of the auto
Industry •* or the Immediate future,"
comments The Automobile. "Califor
nia does 1 not stand alone as a demon
strator of the growing buying power
of "the .-west, however. lowa, now

"The Folly of Repeating Bin. was
the topic ot a sermon delivered yes

fct the First Bap.tist churclj,. In part
he said: * „ " :
"History teaches- ua certain lessons

of luxury and' extravagance and
rensual living the Inevttablo
soom of a na'tlpn. The 'oppression' of
women in fndustry. the cruel and
heartless exploitation of children in
factories and mines and shops, the
practical peonage of labor working
long hours for scant wages; all these
lire forms of human slavery con
fiemned by the bitter and priceless
rxperlence of the nation in the past.
The degradation of women, the pro

The Improvements That Have Already Been Made:
Grading .
The grading was commenced October jl \9\\, and corn- .
pleted on September 1, 1912. -There were 302,000 yard* of dirt
moved—an amount greater than will be necessary to complete
the T-win Peaks Tunnel.
A 3yi ft. by 4y 3 ft. reinforced concrete main sewer through
the center of the tract, is entirely completed and in perfect con
dition. • * . .
The side sewers leading into the- main sewer are from 10 to
24 inches in diameter, and are all completed and in perfecj: ..con
dition. Total length. 48,891 feet. . * .' •. •
Every lot in the tract- has beeti connected with the sewer
by a 6-inch lateral, so that the. streets will never .have tp be tcfrn
up for sewer connections. • * .' • • '
Gas - ...... "V; '■;
A 6-inch high pressure ga9 main V/i miles iri. length has
been constructed to bring an abundance of gas into the district.
A double system of gas mains, one on each side of the street,
has - been completed throughout the tract, laid between the side
walk line and property line, so that all gas connections may be
made without disturbing the street. • .
Owing to the excellent system of governors, the most even
gas pressure in any part of San Francisco is maintained.
Two large mains are connected with the main supply pipe
coming into the city of San Francisco, which lead water to tract.
A double system of water-mains) one on each side of the
street, has been completed throughout the entire tract, laid be
tween the sidewalk line and property, line, so that all water con
nections may be, made without disturbing the street.
The pressure is more than'ample, ranging from SO to 80
pounds per square foot. ' • ' ' .
Electric Lighting
The electric lighting wires for all"houses are brought in from
the rear of the house, so arranged that no. wires cross the streets
at any place, all in perfect working condition..
The electric lighting for the. streets, made by an underground
conduit between the sidewalk and the property line, so that no
street will ever have to. be .forn up.
The electroliers are a combination of a light frame and rose
trellis, so that the lights will hang from a cluster of roses hang
ing out over the streets instead' of the old conventional lamp
posts., • ' . • '. •'. \ ■ -;-'-■', : •; ■
Street Paving
The curbing consists pf a' combined curb and gutter rein
forced and armored with steel on the edges, and is the best job
of combined curb and gutter ever made in San Francisco.
The paving between the curbs- consists of a 6-inch hydraulic
concrete bed. and a full 2-inch bituminous wearing top, not only
fully up to the city standard specifications, but better, so that it
will be accepted by the city for maintenance. \
The sidewalks are all artificial stone laid next to the curb,
3 inches thick and of the best construction..' •
Trees and Parking
Trees have been set out between the sidewalk and the prop
erty line, far enough from the curb so that horses can not injure
them, and far enough back so as not to obstruct the light along
the sidewalks.
Parking between the building line and the sidewalk has been
dpne on many of the blocks, some with grass and flowers, others
with mesenbryanthemurn.
The parks or parklets, five in number, are ornamented with, j
?jra6s flowers, shrubs, etc., also statuary, flower basins, drinking
ountains, pergolas, etc.
Fortyelegant homes have already been constructed, ranging
from $6,000 to $20,000, and plans for many more are in course of
preparation, and the construction of-buildings continuously pror
gressing. ' *'. .
Amusements and Attractions
A clubhouse and grounds worth some*s3o,ooo are already
constructed and have been set aside for tlje -use of the purchas
ers of residence property in the tract.
One of the finest tennis courts in the city is dedicated to the
use of the residents of the tract, being in demand on various

part of the tract to be dedicated to business purposes.
On the tract is the San Francisco Golf and Country Chib».
one of the high class amusements, with its links just across Jut\
ipero Serra boulevard, on the Spring Valley lands. '
