Water Board Item
Draws a Protest
From Mayor Jim
A formal request from the Metro
politan water board to the city coun
cil, asking that an item of $152,930 be
included in the 1917 general levy,
brought forth a remonstrance from
Mayor Dahlman. The document was
referred to the committee of the
whole for consideration.
"Here is one of the instances show
ing how the tax levy is so high. The
water board assesses this as taxes and
then places the money in the water
fund as revenue. It is not right I
appreciate the law gives authority,
but it is not right," declared the
This amount is to pay for "public
water," such as fire hydrants, which
are used for street flushing, as well
as for fire purposes.
Arrested by Police
T. J. Taylor and H. McMahon,
rooming at 2125 Douglas street, were
arrested by the police late yesterday
afternoon and charged with robbery
of R. M. Baston's store at Shenan
doah, la., last Saturday night. A
quantity of merchandise and $333 was
stolen from the store, part of which,
the police stated, was found in the
rooms occupied by the men. They
are also suspected by the local police
of having had a hand in the postoffice
robbery at Malvern, la., Monday.

"In that case," said Morton, "I
think that we will wait for him."
When Fitimaurico returned a few
hours later he was considerably sur
prised to learn that two visitors were
waiting for him at the cottage occu

himself, "that you recently purchased
at auction three scientific works from
the library of the late Dr. Burl-e. It
happens that we are interested in
these books and if they are for sale
we would be glad to make you an
offer for them.'
"You are not the only ones who are
interested in those books," said Fitz
maurice. "What do you mean?" asked Mor
"I mean that I have just left two
of the books in the possession of Dr.
Burke's daughter and Lieutenant
Hope on North Farallone. And , thev
only got them by chance after a Japa

from my cabin "
"But you bought three books," per
sisted Morton. "What has become of
the other one?"
"To be quite frank, Mr. Morton,"
aid Fitzmaurice, who was becoming
suspicious, "I don't see how it con
cerns you. Lieutenant Hope tells me
that Miss Burke is anxious to recover
the books because a legacy from her
father is believed to be hidden in one
of them. If that is so, I fail to under
stand why you are so anxious to ob

Only for a fraction of an instant did

"They do," said Fitzmaurice He
did not add, however, that Hope had
sent a telegram to Dr. Owen asking
him to hold the book until his ar

the radio station entered.
"There's a government tender leav

Though it was late In the evening
when the tender put them ashore at
the government wharf, Olga and
Morton, tired as they were, did not
spend the night in San Francisco.
With Hope and Cleo knowing that

they realized that quick action was
There's a train for Sandsboro at
3 in the morning," Morton told Olga.
"That will give you time to go to
your apartment and change yrnr
clothes and pack a bag. I'll go to
my hotel and do the same and meet
you at the station. The train gets to
Sandsboro about 5. It's an ungodly
hour to get there, but it won't do to
take any chance of this fellow Hope
reaching there first."
The little coast town of Sandsboro
owes its name, and, indeed, its .very
existence, to the great crescent of
sandy beach on which it stands. Its
almost perfect summer climate, its
splendid seabathing, and its proximity
to San Francisco, have long made ft
one of the most popular resorts on
the California coast, its hundreds of
low-roofed, shingled bungalows find
ing ready tenants during the summer
months, while its great tourist
hostelry, the Hotel Arbor, is crowded
with pleasure-seekers from early June
to late September. The less affluent
of the town's summer visitors are
provided for by several lea preten

the big hotel, because that's where
they'll go. So we had better choose
one of the quieter places,"
Ascertaining from the telephone
book Dr. Owen's office hours, Mor

promptly on the stroke of 10.
"Well, sir," said the doctor, a keen
eyed, alert-looking man in the middle
.fifties, "what can I do for you? Is is
biliousness or boils?"
"It's neither, doctor," answered
Morton, laughing. "It's books.
"Books?" the physician repeated,
evidently puzzled. I'm afraid I don't
