Supervisors Can Regulate
The Act of 1878 Is Referred To as
Not Having Been Repealed and
Still in Force.
me months ago the Board of Super
visors pa&sed a resolution calling upon the
officials of the gas and electric coinpauies
to furnish all possible information and
data about tiieir business, with receipts
and expenditure?, as the board intimated
that it intended to aiscuss the subject of
regulating the charges for artificial light.
When the subject came up in the Com
mittee on Sireet Lights Attorney Bishop
and others apueared and stated un behalf
of the corporations that the board had no
power to regulate charges ati'l could not
have unless some new legislation was had
oi: the subject.
The matter was referred by the commit
tee to City an;! County Attorney Crcsswell,
who yesterday sent the Supervisors a lung
opinion on the subject, in which lie upholds
tile power of the board to regulate charges
for artificial light. The opinion is consid
ered a very important one by the Super
visors, and v\ hen ttiey resume business on
September ll some action will betaken
which may he far-reaching.
The City and County Attorney, referring
to t He letier of t ht. Supervisors asking for
information. Bays :
The pan of Beet ion .":; of artlHe IV of the
constitution, having reference to the subject of
the cummumcatton is ;is follown:
The Legislature shall pass laws for the regula- l
tion and limitation of the charges for services
performed and commodities furnished by tele
graph and gas corporations.
Tbe pan ol section ll of article XI, having
ivleieiu.'e to ilie coiiinuiuicaiiou, is as follow*:
In any city litre there are no public works,
owned and controlled by the municipality, for
supplying the same with water or artificial listit.
any Individual or any company duly Incorporated
for such purpose, under and by authority of the
In w.i of this State, shall under the direction of the
Superintendent of Streets, or other official In con
trol thereof, and under such general regulations
us the municipality mar prescribe for damages
aud indemnity lor damages, have the privilege of
using the public streets and thoroughfares there
or. ami of laying down pines and Conduits therein
and connections therewith, so Tar as may be nec
essary for Introducing Into and supplying such
city Mid us i!iii:i!i lams either with gasllgh; or
ottier Humiliating .i-jlit: or with frcsn water for
domestic and all other purposes, upon the con
dition that the municipal government shall have
the right to regulate the charges tbereoi.
The City and County Attorney says that
In this lat;cr article of the constitution the
tixineof water lates ia provided for, and in
no part does it remotely refer to the regula
tion of the charges of gas provided for in
the first section quoted, section 33 of
article IV.
The tirst thing therefore to inquire
is whether there is a conflict between the
two sections. After construing the two
sections and applying the usual laws nf
legal construction tbe City and County
Attorney concludes that the conflict be
tween the two sections is cmlv apparent
:md that they must be read together, show
ing that the city has the right to regulate
charges for gas.
Tbn next inquiry considered is: Must
the Legislature pass laws in aid of the
municipal government before action can be
taken by it in the exercise of th** powers
conferred by section 19 of article XI?
In his opinion the City and County At
torney says there is no need of such legis
lation. He says :
lam of the opinion that do act of the State
Legislature is necessary to enable a municirai
government to regulate the charges fur nit i-
Octal liL'ht furnished by individuals or com
panies organized under the laws of the State
tor that purpose to a municipality or the in
habitant* -thereof.
The power having been granted the munici
pal government ny section I'J to regulate the
charges for gas furnished by individuals or
companies organized uuder the laws of the
State to the municipality, "every particular
power necessary for th« exercise" of the light
can be used by the municipal government.
The municipal government can adopt a mod©
of procedure for the regulation of the charges
/or gas furnished und'-r section 19, and can
use any means at its command in the exercise
of the power.
Upon whom must this duty devolve for the
When rower is granted to a municipality,
which is not expressly conferred upon some
particular department or officer, and i< not of
such a character that it must be exercised by
some particular department or officer, Midi
power lestsiu the legislative department of the
municipal government.
Tne legislative department of the muni
fi; ality of the city and county of San
Francisco can pass an ordinance or reso
lution regulating the charges for gas fur
nished to tiie municipality or the inhabi
tants thereof by individuals or domestic
It must not tie forgotten that in 1878 the
Legislature, passed an act tv regulate thn
quality and standard illuminating power !
and price of gas in all ciues within the ■
s:ate nf California having a population of
lor more. The constitution provides
that ail laws in force at the adoption of
the constitution shall remain it: full force i
unu effect until altered or repealed by the \
'1 he a^'t of 187S has not, as far as I have '
bevn able to discover, been altered or re- i
i>. aiPii, and it is n«»t inconsistent with the i
constitution of IS7O.
The act 1878 authorizes and requires |
the Board of Supervisors to fix the inaxi- 1
mum rale and price for each 1000 cubic i
feet to be charged for gas by any person,
and that such price may be changed from
time to time, not nftmier than once every
year, as increased consnmt tion or other
circumstances in their judgment may re
quire. Ms%£
In conclusion I will repeat that the mu
nicipal government of the city and county
of San Francisco can. through its Board of
Supervisors, pass an ordinance or resolu
tion in its usual mode of passing ordi- :
nances or resolutions regulating the
r h urges for gas for artificial light fur
nished the municipality or the inhabitants
thereof by individuals or by any company
duly incorporated for such purpose under
and by virtue of Him laws of California.
A Property-Owner Obtains a Writ
of Mandate.
On the petition of Simon Kanka. a prop
erty-owner on Liberty street. .Superior
Judge Garber granted a writ of mandate
yesterday direct ins the Biard of Super
visors to appear before Judce Murphy on,
September 8 to show cause why the (trad- |
ing of Liberty street, near Sanchez, should ;
not be commenced in accordance with the i
recommendations of the Sewer Cominis
s:oners in October last year.
The object of the work desired i* to
secure a sra«i«» which, at a point in Lib- !
ertv street 336 feet west of Sanchez shall
be 339 feet nliove the base, thence sloping
westerly to Noe street ana easterly to San
chez, so that the cut caused by the said
gra<te on Hie I, chest point of Liberty street
shall be fifteen feetdrep. This would «iv«
a gral*- of about 20 cent to the cross- I
ing of Noe nod Liberty street?, mid abou'
15 per cent to the crossing at Sanchez and :
Liberty streets.
The Supervisor?, it appear?, proposed to '
establish a level gnide. But it is stated
that this would necessitate a cut through '
Liberty-street hill of sixty-seven feet, and j
would cause ureat depreciation in the valti"
ol the property l:i the iifigiiborhood. •

The New Fourth-Street Bridge Bore
Its Weight Well.
The Fourth-street bridge was tested on
Tuesday night by leaving a weight, con
iißlinffof23B tons, equally distributed, on
its surface for a period of eighteen hours.
Yesterday morning the weight wai taken
off and a critical examination of the bridge
was made by Engineer Mannon.
The engineer repotted that the bridge,
as far as the, weight test showed, was very
satisfactorily constructed, the d'-Hections
caused by ttie heavy weight being very
small. When the report of the engineer
reaches the Supervisors it is probablo that
the bridge will be I brown open to the
traveling unblic. pending its acceptance by
Hie board. No wagon*, however, or horses
will be allowed on the bridge until it is
New Home of the Holy
A More Commodious and Better
Arranged Building for the
Wards of the Sisters.
Right on the very summit of the Hayes
street hill, on the northeast corner of Fill
more street, a large four-story structure of
imposing appearauie is nearly completed.
In fact the whole interior is finished and
painted, and it is only necessary to finish
the plastering within to iiave the t>lace
ready for occupancy.
The edifice will be occupied by the Sis
ters of the Hoiy Family as a mother home.
The house ttiev occupy at present on
Hayes street, near Van Ness avenue, is
not large enough, and many of the rooms
are useless because they have not been
arranged properly for the Sisters' use.
The new home, which will be entirely
paid for by the bisters, is sixty feet front
by 112 feet deep. To the west of it are
grounds, fifty by eighty feet. Th» build
ing is four-story high, the main entrance
being on the second floor. A broad flight
of stairs leads to the front door, which is
in the center of the building. The edifice
is so arranged that unbroken light streams
into every room.
On the vist or basement floor is the re
fectury or dining-room, ti.e kitchen or
pantry-room?, a dining-room for the poor
and a hall for the children. The latter is
seventy-six feet long and forty feet wide
and can be connected with the other
roo'iis on the floor by opening the large
double doors between.
Ou the second floor there are four recep
tion-rooms and offices combined, a serving
ruom and a novitiate which is separated
from the rest.
A chapel, two dormitories and an infirm
ary constitute the t;>ird floor. A coaoel
takes in part of the fourtli story also. The
front i>art uf the latter story will not be
completed at present as it is not needed
HOW, but finally it will be made into dormi
tories. The building ia painted white and
will be surmounted by a large cross. It w
a wooden structure witli a orick founda
The home will be occupied by thirty-one
Sisters of the Holy Family. Thejdedication
will take place in the first part of October.
The Difference Between Facts and
Fictitious Announcements.
Stretching full across the lace of the en
ormous stores at 918, 9JO and 01T2 Market
street, in the Donahue Building, are three
placards, one of red, one of white and
one of blue. In bold lettering upon the
colored canvas is the following announce
Midsummer Clearance Sale.
Shirts, Underwear, Neckwear.
To make room HATS. Finest Goods
for at
Fall Importations. Lowest Prices.
That the signs attracted the attention of
a vast number of the thn>ng of Market
street passersby, was evideut from tlie
cmwd that the reporter found in the great
store as he entered it. Mr. Beamish
spared a few moments from his customers
to reply to a number oF questions.
"Clearance salt--," said he, "are not new.
But in this instance I think I can houestly
say that tne sale is a genuine one in every
sense of the word. Here, lor instance, is
one of the fashionable imported cheviot
summer shirts in the popular pink shndr.
See trie price on it, 52 isn't it? Its selling

verjF latest and most fashionable New
York block silk hat, marked $8. You can
purchase it now for £6 50.
"All I can finy," added Mr. Beamish in
conclusion, is that these reductions bold
good throughout th:» entire stock. We
don't want to sell goods at such prices, for
it means 'n many cases a loss to v*. but it
can't be helped. Tl.e room is needed for

The railroads have finally taken a decided
stand in the matter of cheaper rates for
dried fruit to the Eaal and have made the
announcement that the rates will be put
into effect.
On and after September 1 the rate on
dried fruit to Chicago and Mississippi
Itiver niid Missouri River points, via the
Colorado Midland, the Southern Pacific,
the Atcnison, Topeka and Santa Fe and
the Atlantic and Pacific railroad*, will be
SI in boxes, barrels or kegs and Si 20 in
sacks. Mixed carloads in boxes, barrels,
kegs and sacks will be SI 20. The mini
mum weight of a carload is 24.000 round*.
In Mr. Huntington's semi-annual state
ment of the Southern Pacific Company's
finances he states that for trie first half of
18PP., from January 1 ;o June .°>o, inclusive.
there was an increase over the same period
of last year of 5i, 048. 08(5 ie gross earnings.
The increase in net earnings was in round
numbers $400,000. These figures are. a
gain over those for the first half of 1800
and tlie first half of 180:.', but fall short of
ills results for the. same period of 1801.
The latter year was the best in the history
of the eomoanj, ami last year's revenue
whs below it In volume.
The gross earnings lor the first half of
the year were $23,160,620, the lines west of
El Paso being credited with $16,725,65)8,
and those oast of Xl Paso with $6,434,922.
Thn increase un the lines east of El Pu>o
over tiie same pcriol «>f l;\st year has been
■ bont 10 percent and about ."> per cent on
the lines west of El Paso. In other words,
' the lines east of El I'.iso e»rned gross the

Game Played at Piedmont Yesterday
The first of a series of games for the local
championship was ulayed between San
Francisco and Oakland at the Piedmont
grounds yesterday afternoon. •
There was a good attendance of the
lovers of the game.
This is the first of an effort to revive the
national game which recently !ia» had
quite a set back.
The ban Franciscos started the gnme,
but. weic qaieklf retired in one, two, three
order. For Oakland Irwin was the first
victim, followed by McGucken, who hit for
tiiree bases, scoring on liiues' three-bagger,
the latter being thrown out at the plate.
F.arle also sored.
In the second inning Carroll, for the
Fri«eos, got a base on ball«, reached
second on a sacrifice and scored on Ebright's
[ double. Power was hit by pitcher and
j scared on Ebright'a hit.
1 When ilcGncken again took the bat he
i lined out a double and came in on Mines'
j home run. Eatle duplicated Ilines' hit.
In the fifth inning IIin«-s singled and
| went to second on a sacrifice, scoring on
! Callony's bit. Levy led (iff with a double
! and readied home on Magdire'n long hit.
MoGocktMi gut to first in the sixth inninc
00 Ebri^ht's error, and after llines' single.
both scored on Earle's double. Power
; alio knocked out a double, coming home
on Ebnehi's hit. sharp scored on Ma
guire'a single, and Macnire and Carroll
scored on Power's second hit.
In the seventh inning Sneer singled and
reached third on bums, and finally scored
:on close decision at the plate.
The rest of the game was very tame,
ending with a victory for the Kriscos.
Score, 18 to 13.
The next game will be played at the
same, place Saturday afternoon, beginning
at 2:30 o'clock. It is expected that ar
rangements will be made to engage the
llaighi-slreet Grounds fora number of '.he
games, in order to give th« ban Francisco
enthusiasts an opportunity of enjoying
the sport. McDonald has been selected as
umpire, and meets with general approval
as his knowledge of baseball i* indisputa
ble and his judgment unprejudiced.

Captain Goodall Makes a
Business Visit.
There Is Much Activity in All Indus
tries—Progress on the New
Railroad -The Jetty.
About ten days aeo Captain Charles M.
Gnodall went by the newly fitted steamer
Arago to Coos Bay for the purpose of
looking over the interests of thai section
with a view of Riving a better transporta
tion service, and thus establishing closer re
lations between that harbor and is in Fran
cisco. He returned yesterday, very much
pleased with the material outlook of the
Coos Bay country and of his company's
interests. To a Call man Captain Good
all said that he heard no complaint of hard
times or scarcity of money. Building of
the railroad from Marshficla to .set.ing
has served to stimulate the energies of the
entire population of the bay and every one
had plenty of money.
The rails which were taken up by the
Arago are sufficient to finish the track to
Myrtle Point, a distance, of thirty mile?,
and the road will be opened for traffic to
that point within two or three weeks.
This enterprise, which was undertaken by
the Coos Bay, Roseburg and Eastern Rail
way nnd Navigation Company, will no
doubt be pushed to completion next year,
and the jaw-breaking name changed to
•Southern Oregon.
With this road nnished from tidewater
on Coos Hay to the center of the rich
Umiiqua Valley, to say not Inns of Severn I
small valley* intervening, San Franet-co
will he able with small exertion to recover
the trade of a rich section which she had
from earliest times until 1873, Wieii Ben
liolladay finished his line from Portland
to linseburg. During that peri»<l ban
rrariciscn vessels entered the Umpqiia
Kivernnd ascended to S -ottsbur,:. tne head
of navigation, where cargo was discharged
and taken by team a distance of thirty
miles Into the interior.
Work on the j -My at Coos Bay entrance
is progressing satisfactorily, and there is
enough of the appropriation left to secure
permanently agninst storms that portion
which Is already built. Six hundred feet
remain to lie constructed in order to carry
out the original design, but it is believed
the jetty as it n- w stands will ?xert an
much influence on the bar, proportionate-
Iv, an tt,t> jetty at the mouth of the Colum
bia River has accomplished there. By
confining the outflowing water within
■mailer limits a greater depth is created
by eroMon. The minimum depth at low
water now is fifteen feet, and it is reason
ably to be expected that a depth of eight,
een or nineteen feet will be obtained
within thrt-e months.
The. Oregon Coal and Navigation Com
pany is making arrangements to ooen up
more coal at its Newport line, and the out
put hereafter will be increased consider
White Girls Are Employed
by Mongolians.
One Hundred Young Women Find
Work in a Chinese Canning Fac
tory on Stockton Street.
In some instances the Chinese are eorc
prlled to resort to white labor to carry on
their busini-iis, and sometimes to'>. while
labor is cheauer inasmuch as it is better
and more easily controlled.
Iv no place, is this state of affairs more
apparent than in an extensive canning
factory on Stockton street, betweeu Sac
ramento and Clay. The eastern side
of the block where this establishment
is situated presents an aupearance of
business enterprise. It is a busy scene.
Cases of tins, green fruit and canned
fruit line the sidewalks, and wagons are
continually coming and going with
products of the farms and the factory.
Chinese are moving the piles of boxes,
and young white women come to the door
occasionally with an order for the Mon
golian*, which they give in a commanding
tone. From inside comes ihe ratile of
machinery and the babble of girls'
More than a nuudred white girls are at
work there.
The Chinese simply solder tins, carry
■ boxes about and remove cases and cans.
But the young women d<» the important
work of the factory, picking, sorting and
preparing fruit for preserving, labeling
| and packing the cans in wooden boxes.
] There are rows of benches where while
I eirls sit and deftly peel and cut fruits.
; Nobody would ever tl.ink it was a Chinese
factory, but such is the case. The busi
ness is conducted wholly by a company of
| Chinese. Though money is still field
I tightly by banks and capitalist;, this linn
is working at Its fullest capacity and cm
i ploying about 100 white girls.
The wages earned vary from SI to S2 a
' day, and this means something like $1000
; a week for five months' steady work, of
which the white girls get the benefit.
Various reasons are given for white
girls supplanting Chinese, and the Chinese
employers are not over-anxious to talk
concerning them. In reply to a question
i on this subject yesterday one of the fruit
packine company said as he assumed a
1 running expression: :
"We would not employ white girls if
i they did not please us belter than Chinese.
The uirls' work is cheaper than the.
Chinese. We can employ girls at better
terms, and then they do good work."
"What is the average daily pay of the
"Some make $2, but it is nearer SI a
day. We employ over 100 girls, just the
; same as other factories, and pay the same
as Fontana's, Cutting's, Lusk's and others.
• Girls are paid on piecework. If they are
lazy they don't make much. If they work
hard they can make and save innnev. it is
all contract work— so much a basket. The
only Chinese employed are soldering or
doing the heavy work.
"Our draying is done by white men «nd
we get all our tins from white makers.
Wo fling Kee & Co. had a factory up
stair.*, but this year we found we could
buy cheaper trow white houses than they
could supply us. Kee «fc Co. are closed
now. They used to charge S3 03 a hun
dred cans. Now w« get the same tins for
-$2 87% "a hundred from white makers."
The giris paid no attention to their sur
rounding, they simply kept on at their
work — some in a high basement, others up
stairsas if it was any other factory.
They appeared In no way different from
girls in factories conducted and owned by
white men, nor had they any more severe
masters. It was work and work, peel and
pack without cessation. Baskets of fruit
i came upon the tables only to be prepared
\ and fallowed by m re baskets.
Little difference did it make where these
voting women earned their scanty bread.
They ssn^ gajlf. chatted while thsir
nimble finders moved like tin- win'js
of tlying birds, and looked contented and
o^ of them, a well-dressed and neat
young woman with a check apron and
check oversleeves, ordered a Chinese
around as if she owned the place. The
Chinese replied in a tone of banter, but
did as she sail.
"It's as good here as on the beach," she
said, comparing the Chinese factor? with
a Dig establishment on North Beach! Then
she returned to her task of labeling ran*.
