UNION ELECTRIC DEPOT IS PLANNED A union depot for electric street railway and suburban lines at Eleventh and Mission streets is the plan being worked out by municipal and. railway officials. The plan sug gested itself to City Attorney Long through the request of the Ocean Shore line to cross Mission street and make use of its property, now used as a football field, for a depot. Before such a permit is granted it has been suggested to the Ocean Shore com pany that an agreement be reached whereby the United Railroads would use the terminus /or its San Mateo line and the Southern Pacific for the old loop line which is to be electrified for suburban service. NEED NO PERMIT FOR INSIDE INN —RULING BY LONG. The exposition company has the right to grant the concession to the Inside inn, according to an opinion rendered today by City Attorney Long. He'advises the supervisors that the exposition company is a corporation which not only possesses all the pow ers of an ordinary private corporatlon. but also powers, public in character, and that it is not necessary for any corporation to obtain a permit to op erate a hotel. Opposition to the Inside inn was made by the Hotelmen's association, members of which contended that spe cial privileges granted it by the ex position would make it an unfair com petitor in the hotel field.
