Supervisors Lack Funds to Order Construction of Needed Schools
The problem of securing funds to provide for additional
sihools in congested districts was taken up by the Supervisors
at their meeting last Monday. The members recognized the
urgent need for new schools in the Mission, Glen Park and
Fairmount sections of the city, but found themselves without
the money necessary to proceed with their construction. After
considerable discussion Mayor Rolph suggested that the City
Attorney be asked for an opinion as to how the bonds issued
in 1904, which are at present unsalable, could be disposed of
so that the money would become available for school construc-
tion purposes. This suggestion was favored and the clerk was
directed to ask City Attorney Long to furnish the desired in-

instructing the City Engineer to draw the necessary plans and
furnish an estimate of the cost of constructing the tunnel.
Although ninety-seven per cent of the property owners on Fill-
more street have expressed themselves as being in favor of the
tunnel, it was decided to fix next Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock
as the time for hearing protests, if there are any filed.

The Board unanimously adopted the following resolution, pru-
testing against the proposed closing of the local Mint.

and attractive features of the city for many years, and during the
last year was visited by more than 200,000 persons; and
Whereas, California and the other Pacific Coast States still have
and wish to continue to have gold coin as the chief circulating
Whereas, The abolition of the Mint would necessitate a readjust-
ment of banking and commercial methods; and
Whereas, The famous institution, one of the landmarks of the
Pacific Coast, would be reduced to a mere assay office and deprive
several hundred persons of a livelihood; therefore, be it
Resolved, That the Board of Super\'isors, acting in concert with
the Chamber of Commerce and industrial and commercial organiza-
tions of the Pacific Coast, earnestly protests against this proposed
change. Be it further
Resolved, That Congress and the President of the United States
be urged to continue the operation of the San Francisco Mint for
the coinage of gold and silver so that San Francisco will retain one
of its important and beautiful landmarks, and at the same time pro-
vide employment for men and women who have faithfully served
the government for many years. Further,
Resolved, That his Honor the Mayor, the chief executive of the
metropolis of the Pacific Coast, be requested to urge California and
the Pacific Coast delegations in the United States Senate and the
House of Representaives to use their best efforts to retain the San
Francisco Mint in full operation; also that his Honor the Mayor
be requested personally to communicate with the President of the
United States and Secretary of the Treasury, urging that the best
interests of this city demand the continuance of the Mint in this city.
