P. Dunn, with his usual vigilant care for the interest of the people, has been looking very closely into the correctness and validity of the heavy dewjanda upon the Treasury recently allowed by tho Board of Supervisors in favor of the Gas and Water Companies, and, la consequence, has returned to the Board the demands of the Gas Company for May, June and July, accompanied by the following reasons for taking that course THX CASH AQAIKST Til OAS CONTACT. I herewith return to you, without my approval, the following demands on the Treasury in favor of the San Francisco Gas Company: May, 1S80, 84; June, 1880, 21,872 62; July, 1880. 322,705 62. Total, 68.

These bills were presented to and passed by your Honorable Board for the quantity and quaUty ot gas furnished by said Company (or lighting the public streets of this city during the months spec. fled. I believe your Honorable Board passed these bills under a' misapprehension as to the amount of gas furnished. To make this matter clear, I am obliged to refer to the terms of alleged contract made by your predecessors with toe Gas Company. H-.

Jaa O. Rountree was appointed in 1879 to fix the rate to be charged by the Gas Company (or lighting the public streets. The rate agreed upon for each lamp was 14 cents per night, made up as follows: For gas at (2 30 per 1,000 cubic feet. 11 cents; cost of lighting, 8 4-10 cents; with interest on the investment in lampposts and appurtenances which belong to the Company, 6-10 cento. Total, 14 cents.

This 14 cents per lamp per night, Mr. Rountree stated to me was based upon the statement made by Mr. Crockett, the engineer rOR TH OAS COMP ANT, that each lamp consumed 6 cubic feet of gas per hour, and was lighted 2,640 hours per year, an average of eitrht hours per night. (I refer yon to Mr. Rountree's letter, now on file in the office of the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors These figures were accepted as correct.

and tne above rate estaousneu as stateu. mow, if these figures, as submitted by Mr. Crockett on behalf of the Gas Company, should on examination be found incorrect; that is, if the number of hours is incorrect, or the number of cubic feet which it is claimed each lamp consumes is incorrect, it necessarily foUows that any demands based upon them must be incorrect also. That no injustice should be done the Gas Company in this matter, I requested them to furnish tne with the schedule of time by which the lamps are lighted and extinguished. They promised to do so.

I waited over a week, and not receiving it, I wrote to the Secretary requesting a I afterward called personally at the office of the attorney for the Gas Company; but so far the Company has refused to grant my request- It might be pertinent to ask here whether any individual or any Company, when presenting a demand on the Treasury, cannot, when called upon, be compelled to prove the correctness of said demand. APTBB CASKFOlf CALCULATION, I find the number of hours the tamps should have been lighted during the year 1879 to be 2,310, or aa average of seven hours per night that is, one-eighth less than the number which the engineer of the Gas Company claims. I have computed these figures from the schedule of time accorving to which the Gas Company is supposed to light and extinguish. Does it not follow that their demands for 1879 were one-eighth In excess of what they ahould have been? During the month ot May of this year, I find the number of hour the lights should hare been lighted to have been 170 hours and 40 minutes. Admitting for the present that the number of cubic feet consumed by each lamp is 6, as the Gas Company claims, I find that 6,731.011 cubic feet of gas were consumed by 6,372 lamps, which, at ft SO per 1,000 cubic feet, the price for which tbey are to furnish gas to the city, amounts to 813,181 30; add for lighting at 2 4-10 cents per lamp per night, $3,609 40; total, 916.799 7a Deducting for lamps not lighted according to the Gas Company' own return (254 nights), 828 34, leaves the net amount due the Gas Company, $16,762 36.

Their demand is for $21,770 01, or an overcharge for the month of May of 85,007 65. Pursuing the same system of calculation for June and July, I find the OVKKCHAEGB VOX UN to be $5,353 83, and for July $5,103 34. making a total overcharge in the bill which 1 return to your Honorable Board of $15,469 41. I have not here touched upon the item of 16c which is charged for keeping each lamp in repair during the mouth, and which amounts to over $390 per mouth. As to the 61 cubic feet which the Company claims each lamp consumes in an hour, I have not been able to investigate.

Mr. Bloomfield, however, in his report to your predecessors, made in June, 1879, says that the average consumption of gas per hour for each lamp is four cubic feet. If this Is the ease, a large reduction should still further be made in the bills of the Gas Company, a the city is paying for a large amount of gas which it is not receiving. If I am correct in my conclusions. I find that the San Francisco Gas Company have, since May, 1879, included in their demands over $40,000 more than tbey were entitled to, even admitting their state-merit that they are furnishing 6 cubic feet per lamp per hour to be I furthermore find that in the 14c per lamp, which was the rate agreed upon by your predecessors, and in accordance with which the Gas Company STILL FRKAKNT TiIXIX DX1IANDS, is included an item of six-tenths of a cent interest per night on the investment in lamp-posts and appurtenances which belong to the Company.

In the contract under which it is claimed they are working, I find this provision: "The party of the second part (the Gas Company) to furnish and supply the lamps, lamp-poets and service pipes required under the contract at its own expense In the bill for July of this year this item alone amounts to over $900, and einoe May, 1879, to over I can see no reason why the Gas Company should be entitled to this money. From the foregoing, your Honorable Board will perceive that the city has been pcying the Gas Company much more than the stipulated price for the gas; that it has been paying them (or lighting the lamps; that it has bern paying them (or keeping their own lamps in repair; and that it has been paying them, in addition, interest on their investment over and above the profits which they derive from the manufacture of gaa In face of the facta which I have submitted it is no surprise to me that the Gas Company, should hesitate before furnisbingthe data necessary for ascertaining the correctness of their demands, or that they should be unwilling to commence an investigation which may result in their income being materially reduced. In conclusion 1 desire to say that if the Gas Company should deal candidly with the public, as man with man, this perpetually recurring agitation of the gas question and the cry against "grinding corporations," would cease, the Gas Company would leceive, as they are entitled to, a fair interest on their investment, and the public would receive, as tbey are entitled to, value for their money and that consideration which everybody merits who has to foot the bills. A BXTIBW OF SPRING VALLBT'S LfTTLB BILLS. The Auditor will also return to the Supervisors without his signature the demands of the Spring Valley Water Company for water furnished the city during the month et August, 1880, for public buildings, irrigation iu Golden Gate Park, extinguishing fires, and the flushing of sewers, aggregating $27,000.

Mr. Dunn takes this step after obtaining the opinion of several attorneys, among them being E. F. Preston, who seta forth among others the following point in his opinion: The demands, if authorized at all, are authorized by the order of the Supervisors known as the Bayly Ordinance. The organic law under which the Spring Valley Water Company was incorporated, and to which it is still indebted for its existence, requires that it furnish the city with water for all the above purposes except public buildings free.

Tested by the Charter of the Company, the Statutes, and the adjudications of the Supreme Court, the demands presented ara void. First As to all items except water furnished to public buildings, because it is the obligation of the Company to furnish such water free. Second As to all the demands, because no rates have been fixed, as provided by the Statute under which the Company was incorporated. Relative to the claim that the New Constitution frees the Water Company from any obligation to furnish the city with water free, Mr. Preston says the New Constitution does not prevent companies nor individuals to introduce water into cities free from all obligations, but on the contrary, the language is: Any individual or company nadea- the direction of the Superintendent of Streets, and under such general regulations as the municipality may prescribe for damages and indemnity (or damages, have- the privilege of using the streets laying down pipe, (or the purpose of supplying the inhabitants of such city with pure, fresh water, upon the condition that the municipal government shall have the right to regulate the charges thereto." It will be seen, 1st.

That the frame rs of the Constitution did not intend to make this language applicable to existing works, bat to something to be done in futurity. 2d. That the privilege to lay pipes, etc, is not absolute, but is subject to the right of the city to require compensation for damages, and indemnity against damages, and cannot be exercised in any other way. That the right to fix rates by the Board of Supervisors only applies to persons or companies who, under the Constitution, are subject to the regulations of the city. From this predicate it follow that no general regulations having been adopted by the city, no person nor company can lay down pipes, and as no privilege has thus been granted, no rates can have been fixed.

That as no privilege has been lawfully acquired by any person, then no immunity has accrued to the Spring Valley Water Company by which it has escaped the duty of supplying water to the city free. The Bayly ordinance is therefore void, and the demands presented thereunder cannot be audited by you. Mr. Preston concludes by saying that there are many more proposition in support of the above views, but he deems those cited conclusive. Auditor Dunn also received an elaborate opinion from James A.

Waymire to the same effect as the above, and seta forth among others the following points: The question of law presented is whether the Board ot Supervisors had power to authorize payment for water furnished for such municipal purposes. Mr. Waymire says; "It is well settled that a municipal corporation possesses only such powers as are expressly delegated to it by law, or such a ara necessary to the exercise of the power so enumerated. The Consolidation Act contains no express delegation of the power in question Other authorities ara cited, and concluded by the statement that "there is do express grant of this power." The opinion then quotes the opinion of Justice McKinstry of the Supreme Court, in 1877, which concludes as foUows: "It is the duty of the corporation to furnish water free (to the extent of Its means) for the extinguishment of fires, and to the Fire Department, and for all other purpose for which it may be demanded by the authorities of the city and county in discharge of their direct duties as governmental agenta being such as are distinguishable (rum family uses' as hereinbefore defined." To the argument that the Spring Valley Water Company ha by the New Constitution been relieved of its obligation to furnish water free of charge for any purpose, Mr. Waymire replies, with an extended legal argument, drawing the conclusion that Section 4 of the Act of 1853, requiring all Water Companies to furnish certain water to municipalities free ef charge, is not inconsistent with the present Constitution, and is, therefore, still in force; that it operates as a limitation upon the power of the Board of Supervisors, inhibiting them from authorising pay for such water; that Section 11 of the Bayly Ordinance (Order No.

authorizing pay for such water, is ultra virtu and void; that the demands under consideration, being based upon said Section, are not authorized by law, and should not be approved by you. encases ateearded.

Reensliergsr, was eontinned for hearing until to-morrow. an audience remains for hoars showing such strict attention to the discussion of political issue. In viewing the multitude of faces turned to the platform where the distinguished soldier, General W. S. Rose-cram, presided, one could almost imagine that the festive Mr.

Hayes was doing the Mechanics Fair all ba himself. The Secretary read the following list of I Thornton. Greathouse, Lloyd Tevis, Wm Coleman, Flood, A A Cohn, Peter Donahue. Tod Robinson. Scott, Wm Craig, Thos Barry, Wm Edgar, Ed Miller, of Martinex; Chas Tobin, Contain Peter Johnson, Henry Schwartz, Leonids Hamilton, Woolf, Steinhart, Wm Ford, James Lawrence, Dorney, Albert Bach, Wm Baggett, Jul Platobek, Leopold Mayer, Jno Fogarty, O'Brien, Sanchez, Dr Schorb, and fifty more; Capt Chas Wheat.

The first speaker, Francis J. Sullivan, was introduced by General flosunans. prefaced by a (ew pleasant re-marka Mr. cullivan was most cordially received, and spoke with force and eloquence. Referring to Day," be alluded to the wants and changes caused hy tne thirty year which have elapsed since California became a member of the Union.

After vindicating the part taken by the Democracy during the last twenty ypars, Mr. Sullivan went on to say: "Ihe true issues before the people are: Which party is favorable to the Union Which is the Constitutional party? Wnich party has public virtue? Wbich party favor ec nomj? Which party favor harmony? Which party is in accord with the genius of oar Government? The Union party is that party which knows no North, no South, and which is not sectional but National, and which desire to promote the in- tne people. The Reconstruction Acta aareBSDBBBB is batb and executed with corruption. Their track baa left a burning brand upon the Southern heart. The maxim of the Roman was to conquer the proud and show pity to the humble.

With the Republicans, it was conquer and crush the bumble, and spare the proud, if the South is solid, it has been driven to such a coarse. It has been robbed and plundered, until in the very insanity of desdaii it seek the refuge from her foe with the party which regards the right, and sympathizes with misfortune the Democratic party. The pest and present history of the Utter party demonstrate that it at the Union and ant the sectional party. Which is the Constitutional party? Certainly that party which preserves intact the rights of tie Federal Government in all the rights delegated to it by the State, and preserve to the States the powers not prohibited to them or delegated to the Federal Government, Has Republicanism respected the rights of the States? Read the history ot Recombination; eon-suit the annuals of the' past five years, and what do we behold? States subjected to martial law, the army- protecting usurper and ballot-box stuff era; larceny of State votes by John Sherman, James A. Garfield and others; Returning Boards supported in tbeir majorities; the Electoral College polluted by false returns; State Legislatures ejected at the point of the bayonet; the solemn acts ot a State restraining Chinese ummigration nullified; (Hisses).

State jury law declared invalid.and finally above all, a President seated in the Chair of Washington through gross and open disregard of State right. The party wbich contended at the Hartford Convention for State Righto, the party that in Rhode Island excludes the naturalized citizen from voting on-less he possesses $134 worth of property, the party which proscribes on account of religion in Vermont. The party which found the most extreme doctrine of State Rights at the ktoctoral Commission, when some of the returns had been arranged by Garfield this party favors strong government and centralization of power. Who ever read in the works of eminent statesmen the word "Nation" as applied to-day to our Government? Is it not a (act that the patriot of the past have always used the word "Union?" Yet the standard-bearers of the Republican party speak of oar o-untry a Nation. Standing in the presence ot our illustrious dead, let us swear that the plans of WASHUSTOBV JBrTBBSOB ASB MADISO shall prevail, and that this Republic shall be really a union of State.

The speaker closad with a magnificent hernration, and retired amid much cheering. Colonel J. J. Tobin delighted the audience with a recitation, The Field of Gettysburg." Hon. Edward C.

Marshall then took the floor and kept the audience in a state of uproarous merriment throughout his address. He said that he was gratified at hearing a native Californian express so eloquently the Democratic sentiments to which be had just listened. It waa meet that a Cl if oruima should be" a Democrat, and especially a California Irishman, as was the young speaker who had just retired. If any one heard of a catire born Californian who was going to vote the Republican ticket the speaker wanted to find him so as to make a physiological study of hi cranium. (Laughter.) He was not going to discuss the Chinese question-Heaven forbid.

He did not want to let the people know, but he loved the Chinese with all his heart. If be di, he would Tote the Republican ticket, (Laughter.) They have published a platform and in it promi-ed to look into the Chinese question. They are looking into it, but it is not proposed to find anything in it. They don'fwant to. They sent a Commission out there and they looked into it, and they published a book which, if it is a heavy in its sense as it is in size, it would be as formidable as one of the ships of ear Navy.

THB DEMOCRATIC FARTT bare always been in favor of free trade and free every-thine, and have only this once asked for protection, protection for the very lives of its citizens and the well-being of the country, but it had been refused, and there w.s no way open for this protection until the Democracy were given the reins of government. The speaker reviewed the speeches of Thompson and Schurs delivered in this city. He had not heard these two wo- thiea He was getting too old and could not stand everything, hence he stayed at home, but he read portions of them, and did not find enough substance in them to warrant hi reading the balance. The great American Navy and the tarry old salt of the stormy Wabash were held up in their truly ridiculous positions for the Inspection and jeers of the audience. Hughey Robinson followed with some of his comic songs ahicb be delivered In his inimitable style, and dosed the seventh grand Democratic demonstration of the Blue and Gray Twelfth District.

The leaders are getting fearfully desperate. They send a Committee to one of the lowest of the Irish ram-sellers and tell him if he will only pledge himself to bring twenty votes to the support the regular rum-Ile publican ticket they will promise that he shall not be seized for one year. Two notorious rum-seUers have been approached ia Portland within ten days by precisely such promises. We state this distinctly and dare any to deny the fact. The names of both parties are known.

The grog man replied, Xo, sir, you promised the same thing two years ago, but I have been seized three times since. Two year ago about 300 votes were bought ia and about Portland alone, and yet the notorious agent in this rascally flair claims to be a consistent temperance man and wants to speak now and then as an oracle. We call upon our friends to give ns timely notice of all such action. We shall expose such things by calling names hereafter. A Waleraaelea Mary.
