position. "Within ten months each one of the great exhibit
palaces of the main group of exposition buildings will be
under construction. All of them will be completed on or
before June 25, 1914.
"The first great palace to be commenced will be that de-
voted to machinery. The contract for this will be let on or
before November 11; from then on contracts for the other
great exhibit palaces will be let at the rate of two a month,
and all of these great structures must be in course of con-
struction inside of nine months. It is estimated that ten
months is the maximum limit of time necessary to complete
the most elaborate of the palaces.
"While other expositions have employed a great number
of men shortly before their opening and have consequently
cost a great deal in time and efficiency, we will distribute our
labor so that the maximum employment will come a long
time before the Exposition opens. A large number of men
will be given employment within ninety days, and this num-
ber will be gradually increased until the fall of 1913. when
the work of construction will be at its height on all buildings,
and as rapidly as these are completed the number of men will
become less from month to month.
"The early start upon the Exposition will give it an incal-
culable advantage and greatly contribute to its prestige and
success. It will serve to stimulate the entire work which is
now in all impoVtant phases relatively much further ad-
vanced than at other great world's expositions.
"It is anticipated that the construction work to be under-
taken by the different States and nations will keep pace with
the progress made upon the Exposition palaces.
"The finishing of the buildings at so early a date will give
.â€¢imple time fur the setting and growth of the trees, shrubs
and vines which will be transplanted upon the Exposition

SAN FRANCISCO, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1912.
Supervisors Take Firm Stand In Controversy With United Railroads
The Supervisors at their weekly nieeting last Monday, took
the stand that the United Railroads must admit that the city
controls the situation regarding lower Market street before
amicable agreement can be reached as to the joint use of the
outer tracks by the municipality and the railway corporation.
This jtosition was taken after a discussion of a proposition
made by the United Railroads on Saturday last, in which the
corporation offered to jointly share the outer rails in lower
Market street with the city, upon the city accepting certain
terms and conditions imposed in the offer. Instead of the
United Railroads being in position to grant permission to the
city to operate its Geary street cars over the outer rails, the
Supervisors held tl-.at it was for the city to grant permission
to the private corporation to use these tracks, should it so elect.
The Supervisors further held that the recent judgment for-
feited the United Railroads' right to operate its Sutter street
cars down Market street to the ferry landing.
While it was agreed that regulations looking toward the
joint use of poles, wires and outer rails in lower Market street
should be entered into, preliminary to these negotiations, the
United Railroads must admit that these rails are controlled by
the city, and furthermore, the corporation must dismiss any
appeal from the judgment which forfeited the Sutter street
A resolution was passed approving the general plans for
sixty-five new double-truck cars, to be installed for service by
the United Railroads, to l)e delivered upon the following con-
struction schedule: Thirty-five cars to be built as per revised
blue print on file in the clerk's office of the Board, and thirty
cars to be of the same general type of construction, except that
the row of longitudinal seats be replaced by cross seats in the
inner or closed compartment.
Special Meetiiii; to Consider Spring \'aUey Oflter.
The Board decided to meet as a committee of the whole on
Thursday evening to discuss the offer made by the Spring Val-
ley Water Company to sell to the city for $38,500,000, all of
its holdings exclusive of 2,300 acres in the Lake Merced res-
Disposal of Stockton Street Tunnel Protests.
All protests against the Stockton street tunnel assessment

A resolution was adopted giving the Committee on Tele-
phones and Rates the right to hear and determine all com-
plaints, correct abuses and control the telephone service to the

Site for Municipal Auditorium is Purchased.
An expenditure of $200,000 was authorized to purchase the

will be one of the features of the Civic Center area. The
Mechanics' Institute, which owns the property, will accept
