TO BAR OUT THE HERD
The Animus of the Scheme to
Change Selby Avenue
Grade
According to Statements Made
at a Meeting of Property
Owners,
Where the Subject of a Cable
Line Tunnel Was Fully
Discussed.
the Gathering Decides That
No Change of Grade Is
Needed.
The proposition to change the grade
Of Selby avenue, between Third street
and Nina avenue, was given an airing
yesterday by interested property own
ers, who, at the request of the board of
public works, met in the council cham
ber and discussed it for three long
hours. At the outset the attendance
was small, but before the discussion was
fairly under way every foot of standing
room in the chamber was occupied.
President Gorman rapped the meet-ins
to order, and read the resolution offered
by Aid. Sanborn, referring the matter
to the board of public works for investi
gation. He requested that the discus
sion be confined to three points? Was
the improvement necessary? How
much would the damages amount to?
and what property should be assessed?
for the improvement The estimates
prepared by City Engineer Rundlett
were then submitted; neither of the
estimates, however, included the dam
age to property or cost of land necessary
to be condemned for the retaining walls.
The width of the thoroughfare is sixty
six feet, with a roadway of sixty feet.
Under Estimate No. 3 it would be neces
sary when the cut approximates a width
of forty feet to condemn ten feet on each
side additional, to rive space for the re
taining walls. Following are the esti
mates submitted by the city engineer:
Estimate No. I— Au 11-foot grade,
84-foot roadway side, to be supported by
retaining walls, with bridge at Summit
avenue: cost. 148,300.
Estimate No. 2— An 11-foot grade,
50-foot roadway, with bridge on Summit
avenue; cost, $85,5 10.
Estimate No. 3 A 6-foot 00-foot
roadway, retaining walls, with bridge at
Summit avenue: cost. £493,000.
Judge Reid opened the ball by de
nouncing the proposition as a scheme of
ten or a dozen residents of Summit ave
nue to shut out the common herd from
a full enjoyment of the privileges of
that thoroughfare. If the grade were*
changed as was proposed, ail adjacent
property, including that on Summit
avenue," would be greatly damaged.
Persons desiriiur to embark on the cable
line cars at Summit avenue would be
compelled to descend a flight of stairs
to do so. Danger now reduced to a
minimum would be immeasurably in
creased by the change, while the one
prominent beauty spot in the city would
be spoiled by the unsightly cut He re
ferred to the cable lines in San Fran
cisco, notably the one on California
street and said be was willing to accept
Hie judgment of such men as Stanford,
the '('rockers and Hopkins, who were
Unanimously of the opinion that the
cable line
ENHANCED TIIK ATTRACTIVENESS
of Nob Hill, hi San Francisco, and also
added to the value of the property.
Gen. Bishop, being called for, said he
would be aide to discuss the matter
more intelligently if those who favored
the change would state their reasons
for it. ami also what property should
bear the expense of the improvement.
Dr. Day here sandwiched in his opin
ions, which elicited frequent applause.
The reposition was the most wonder
ful be had ever heard of. He could not
see any reason for changing the grade.
"favoring public improvements of
all kinds, he looked upon this proposi
tion as the pet hobby of a few wealthy
residents of Summit anemic who
wanted to be as exclusive as possible
and thought a tunnel under Summit
avenue would effect their purpose. If
bis property were damaged, and it cer
tainly would be. he would apply to the
courts for such recompense as would,
under the circumstances, be just to him
self and the public. The argument that
a reduction of the grade from It; to 11
per cent would lessen the danger of
travel on the cable line he characterized
as fallacious. The danger to life and
limb would not be decreased m the least
by the proposed change.
At this stage of the proceedings Fred
Driscoll cot the floor and explained why
he and others favored the tunnel project.
Primarily it would facilitate travel and
make Summit avenue safe for vehicles
and pedestrians. At present. Mr. Dris
coll said, people • driving or walking
along Summit and across-Selby avenue
run great risk of being run over by the
cable cars, which danger could be ob
viated by lowering the grade and con
structing a short open cut through Sum
mit avenue. "This would have been
done long ago," Mr. Driscoll said, "had
not Dr. Day threatened injunction pro
ceedings. This threat was expressed
by Dr. Day at a meeting of the Summit
avenue association. Had the tunnel
been made then, the recent accident on
the cable line might not have occurred."
Dr. Day disclaimed having made any
threats at the meeting referred to by
Mr. Driscoll. What he did say at the
meeting was, that if his property was
damaged by the lowering of the' grade,
he would apply to the courts for ade
quate recompense.
Mr. Driscoll said the Summit avenue
crossing was the most dangerous in the
city. The improvement should be made
anil the whole city assessed for it.
A gentleman in the audience sug
gested that the employment of a couple
of flagmen, at an expense not to exceed
$1,500 per annum, would put an end to
the danger, and be far better than the
expenditure of so large a sum as would
be required for the improvement
Judge Reid took advantage of the lull
to gain the floor, and then proceeded to
sail into Mr. Driscoll. He could not be
lieve that Mr. Driscoll meant what he
had said in regard to Dr. Day. The re
mark was unjust, unkind, untrue and
an unmanly thrust of the crudest and
foulest kind at a citizen.
OF THE HIGHEST STANDING
in the community. He was willing to
excuse Mr. Driscoll, who probably spoke
while in passion. As for the cable line,
the whole city is interested in it, and it
should be left just as it is.
Col. Bend said he was secretary of the
meeting of the Summit Avenue associa
tion referred to by Mr. Driscoll, and
that Dr. Day did not make any threats
as had been stated. As a resident of
Summit avenue. Col. Bend opposed the
scheme to lower the grade of Selby ave
nue. There is no danger whatever at
the Summit avenue crossing.
Col. Ban - said that if it were decided
by the board of public works to order
the improvement, the city railway
company would offer no objection. The
company, however, did not propose to
spend a cent, nor would it claim any
thing for loss of traffic while the im
provement was being made. The
company was of the opinion
that the city should pay its
fixed charges for the period required
to change the grade. These he com
puted at about $3,300 a month, besides
the actual . cost of • removing material,
estimated at $-,000, and $10 per foot for
relaying cable. In response to a ques
tion, Col. Ban* said the difference in
grade contemplated • by- the improve
ment would not lessen the - danger oc
casioned by the breaking of any ap
pliances on a car. It would be out of
the question to utilize tne proposed
tunnel as a driveway, as well as a route
for the cable line.
Col. Bend here interjected a motion
declaring it to be the sense of the meet
ing that the alleged necessity for the
proposed improvement does not exist.
Dr. Day was elected chairman, and
then he put the motion, which carried
by a voted of 38 to 7. A second motion
offered by Col. Bend, to the effect that
no property would be benefited by the
changing of the grade, carried by a sim
ilar vote, adjournment following.
It is probable that a meeting of own
ers of property on St. Anthony hill will
be called in a few days to further dis
cuss the matter.

Bogus Baking Powder Tests.
Rather ingenious but not less fraudu
lent are the pretended tests of baking
powder being made in many of our
kichens by agents who are trying to
further the sale of a Chicago "article.
These so-called tests consist in mixing
separately, with water, a sample of the
baking powder found in the house and
of that carried by the agent. From that
found in the house, if a pure article,
the bubbles of gas will rise and burst
on top like those from a glass of cham
pagne. The Chicago baking powder
which they carry, when mixed with
water, will show an extra froth upon the
top of the mixture, which is claimed as
evidence of superiority. On the con
trary, however, it is not only the exhi
bition of a trick, but is absolute proof
that the baking powder which so acts is
adulterated. The chemists have ascer
tained that the adulterant used is a
chemical added for the express purpose
'producing this action and deceiving
housekeepers as to the true value of the
baking powder. This is not only a dis
honest trick, but a dirty one, for the
chemical is the product of the filthy ret- '
use of the slaughter house, and if this
baking powder is used in the prepara
tion of rood passes into the biscuit or
cake without change. Of course, any
statements made in reference to Other
baking powders, by parties caught in
practicing such tricks as these *or the
purpose of deceiving the public, will be
entitled to no credit.
It is probably wisest in the interest of
our families, and to prevent our food
from being contaminated by tramps of
this kind, to turn all persons who wish
or attempt to tamper with it unceremoni
ously from the door, and to use those
articles only which experience has
proved satisfactory, or the official tests
have established as pure and whole
some.

Oriental Luxuries.
Our reporter visited to-day the Ori
ental exhibition at No. 3 West Third
street (Bridge square). It was both a
surprise and pleasure to see the most
superb and silky rues ever imported to
America. The collection of antique
Boukharas is decidedly the richest that
can be found anywhere. There is an
antique hall rug of camel's hair, in
which hetroglyphic characters are inter
woven it is at least 500 years old. Some
of the antique rugs are so silky and
glossy that the prismatic effect of the
light, so to speak, can be perceived on
them. Besides the rugs there is a rich
assortment of palace embroideries,
scarfs, etc., etc., which will doubtless
interest the ladies. The entire collec
tion will be sold at auction by A. M.
Doherty, commencing Thursday, May
