Davie and the two other new members of the city council at Its special session last Thursday afternoon, and upon which this year's j tax rate of $1-85 was based, shows that ' politics, and not executive efficiency; gov- I erned the motives of the new admlnls- 1 tration In this, the most Important work which It has done since It assumed control of the municipal government less than two months ago. This Is shown by the fact that every deep slash made In departmental appro-, priatlons was made in the vital depart- ' ments headed by Commissioners Harry 8. Anderson and W. J. Baccus' the holdover council members of the old administration. With very few exceptions, the department directly under the hand of Mayor Davie and Commissioners W. H. Edwards and F. F. Jackson, wese more than adequately provided for. So cuts of any significance were made In the municipal departments for which the majority members may be held responsible. On the other hand, the departments of Anderson and Baccus have been so : deeply gashed that the functions of their offices cannot be properly carried out during the coming twelve months. In other words, while the departments of the majority members should be making splendid efficiency records as their funds will be ample those of Anderson and Baccus will probably make sorry showings because of the handicap of Insufficient funds. The fact exhibits the obvious Intention of the mayor and his two followers. . INCREASE IS $74,000. Proof of this contention is shown In the fact that nine of the departments under control of the three new officials are given this year. In round numbers, 74,000 more than these same departments were run on during the past fiscal year, under the administration of the Mott council. Yet the tax rate has been lowered thirteen cents. The money, therefore, must have necessarily been taken from the vital departments under Anderson and Baccus the auditorium, waterfront, street and engineering departments. The park department also suffered woefully, as did the publlo library. The' sum of f 100 was .cut out of the budget which would have- gone toward the support of the Baby Hospital In Installments of $50 monthly. The budget, however, Includes Items totaling more than JS800 as salaries for M. K. Miller and C. Stuart McMullen, old friends of Mayor Davie's, for whom positions were created. Although the Baby Hospital Is sorely In need of the small appropriation, the $600 had to be considered as one of the "luxuries" named by the mayor, that $3000 might be Included In the budget for an automobile for that official's exclusive use, and an additional $1500 as salary for his son, Fred, whom he had appointed as his chauffeur. With this year's malntenence-and other expenses in the street and engineering departments greatly Increased over last year's. Commissioner Baccus' appropriations were cut down something over $30,-000 an important item In consideration of the fact that much new street work 1 needed this coming year. The cut is far greater than this, but cannot be properly estimated now, as a peculiar cunning was shown by the majority members in the Juggling and tangling up of funds, , For Instance, Commissioner Baccus Is allowed $114,0,46 In the engineering fund. Yet this fund includes the publia betterment fund which was last year a separate and distinct appropriation. In other words out of this fund from which should be taken moneys for exclusive use In engineering projects, will be taken the money with which the paving of the Twelfth street dam, the Improvement of Oak and Eighth streets and several other "outside" Im provements should be made. Q JACKSON GIVEN FUNDS. In glaring contrast to the treatment of Baccus' departments Is the action taken with regard to those under the control of Dr. Jackson, the Commissioner of Public Health and Safety. That dignitary.

The kindest treatment accorded Dr. Jackson was In tha 'lire department, where he Is given an Increase of close to 2,000 over last year's appropriations. Where Commissioner Turner ran the fire department with the sum of J401.351, Dr. Jackson Is given $427,000! More than 20,000 of this money Is said to have been provided that campaign pledges might bs kept namely, the construction of two ftrehouses In the annexed district. Many of Dr. Jackson's votes came from that part of the city. Commissioner Turner ran the police department last year for $324,000. Doctor Jackson is to have $339,032 for the same purpose, and no Improvements are pro vlded for. The health "department, from. which some of the city's, besf employes have been discharged, and In which the new administration boasted that a "big saving" was to be made. Is to be conducted with $58,490. Last year It cost but $53,000 to conduct' this department under the efficient management of Dr. A. F. GUlihan. BILL NOT ITEMIZED. " Commissioner Turner's office expenses last year were $75. Dr. Jackson will be given $500 to run hlB office with. His expenses in ' this respect were not itemized. The same applies to the office of Commissioner Edwards, who put himself down In the budget for $500 for office expenses, without first explaining what the "office expenses'" were to be. Cor-mlssloner Forrest, Edward's predecessor, did not have "a cent with which to run his office. When asked at Thursday's torrid meetlmr what he Intended to do with ' the $500, Edwards' said that he would purchase "paraphernalia" with it. j Another significant feature of the budget Is the fact that no money Is included to defray the expenses of -any election, special or otherwise, which may be called. When petitions were still being cir-. culated for the recall of Anderson and Baccus, the sum of $23,500 was included In the budget to defray the expected expenses. With the dropping of this move, however, and the announcement that the recall of the entire Council would be sought in January of next year, nothing was left in the budget to defray any election expenses. The budget also gives $1010 more to the Treasurer's jpffice this year than was needed last yea?. This is one of Edwards' departments. He told Baccus Thursday that "we need the money" when the latter demanded to know what was to be done with the coin. That was his only answer. , StIU another portion of the new budget which Mayor Davie and his two followers have failed to explain is that which provides $15,500 for water and road suits. These suits last year were conducted with an appropriation of $8500. BACCUS ASKS EXPLANATION. The Mayor was very angry with Baccus Thursday when the latter demanded an explanation of him of the fact that the sum of $13,965 with which to conduct the chief executive's office. Mayor Mott's fund for the same purpose was $7386, or $5969 less. Mayor Davie did not answer Baccus' Insistent questions. mi,. in nvs an unsatisfactory answer to Baccus regarding the sum of $5000 which his budget provides for the payment of certified public accountants. Two audits were made for the city nder the .Mott administration last year at a cost of $1200. . That more than the thirteen cent rate reduction came from the departments of Anderson and Baccus, along with the all-Important park department and the library Is shown by the comparison. As the three majority officials gave themselves more than the corresponding three officials used last year, it follows that the corresponding difference In the tax rate cut must have come from the stricken departments not under the control of Mayor Pavle and Commissioners Edwards and Jackson, and for which, under the charter, they cannot be held responsible. Still another very Important item was cut out in this budget. That was $10,000 wMnh w flinched from the $14,000 ap propriation that should have been made for the liability Insurance of the city's employes. The city, therefore, cannot Insure its employes against accident. shm,lH uv be lniured during the year. the money of recompense will have to come from the city treasury, and may result In the loss of many thousands of dollars which the old administration would have obviated through procuring- State insurance.

Application of the Southern Pacific to discontinue its agency at Applegate, Placer county, was denied by the railroad commission this morning when it was announced that a permit to discontinue the agent would not be granted until November 1. The company must In all events maintain a station caretaker. The company had applied for permission to discontinue its agency at once.

"I have decided on tills course In the interests of ecenomy. Aim, the criticism of the press has aided me in making up my mind." "Uavent others beside the press eriticiHed your actions?" the question was asked. "Oh, yes, ' hundreds," was the) reply. EXPLAIN TAX VOTE. Three members of the council Commissioners Anderson, Baccus and Jackson explained their votes in favoring the adoption of the $1.85 tax levy this morning. An ordinance was adopted for the purpose. "I'll vote 'yes' on that," announced Commissioner Anderson, "but I want to say right now tliat while I aiu In favor of a low tax rate, I am opposed to Uio budget for the reason that my department was cut in appropriation more than others." liaccus was more emphatic. "111 also vote 'yes,'."i ho said, "but think that each deNu-tmcnt should have stood Its prorata of the cuts instead of putting all of the burden on a " feH departments. ;; "I vote 'yes' also,". Jackson explained, "but I want to say a word. There ;has been newspaper criticism that I got the best of the deal, but I ! ' want to say that the only Increases! ', got was for the purpose of supplying I better fire apparatus. I told the other ' councllmen that I would vote against the budget ff provision was not made for additional fire protection in the annexed district" . Mayor Davie and Cohimlssioner Edwards did not explain their voffes. W. H. Holman, secretary-treasurer of the Vernon-Rockridge Improvement Club, filed a letter with the council protesting against the proposed grant of (1500 to the Alameda county publicity commission for the celebration of the Skyline boulevard.- City Clerk L. W. Cummirigs was instructed to answer the letter, which said, in part: "We have heard considerable of late relative to the necessary cuts in the various municipal estimates and some of the officials have claimed . that there would have to be a sharp curtailment of activities in their departments. Under the present circumstances, and in view of the city's financial needs, a useless expenditure of $1500, or any othe&sum, for a display in celebration of the Skyline boulevard opening would be a gross vfolatibn of the principles of wise and thoughtful action. "We trust that?ouv will see to It that the people's money is not squandered in any such manner as the demand upon you will indicate. We believe that any appropriation for the ohnvo nnrnivu would Via ati Inlimttnn to tne various city aeparcmenis ana i to the .taxpayers of the city of Oakland." BACCUS THANKS JACKSON. "I wish to thank Dr. Jackson at this point," said' Commissioner Baccus, "for saving my department from ruin. It was through his insistence with Mayor Davie and Commissioner Edwards that the street department was granted an additional 3 cents. With this additional sum I can keep my office together during the year." A protest against the action of the Oakland, Antioch & Eastern Railway in cleaning Its cars in Shatter avenue, above Forty-second street, and against the switching-' of cars at this point . was referred to the" city clerk with instructions to take the matter up I with the railway officials. Judge Mortimer Smith, appearing ! as attorney for Mrs. Catherine Ken-1 nedy in her protest against the improvement of Twenty-fifth avenue, told the council that the street would be fenced in if the work was gone ahead with. Judge Smith claimed that the street had never been dedicated to the city. Baccus said the records contradicted this statement and the work was ordered done. A protest against the establishment of a dyeing and cleaning establishment at 6024 Claremont avenue will be heard on September 13th. On recommendation of Chief of Police W. F. Woods, the council denied the application for a liquor license made by the Corinthian Social Club, at the northwest corner of Eighth street and Broadway. Also on Woods' recommendation, a restaurant with bar license was refused to Felice Nestl, E51 Center street. Commissioner Baccus reDorted on jthe complaint of the San Francisco Board of Health that Oakland's garbage was drifting upon the shores of the transbay city after it had been dumped at sea, saying that most of this garbage came from the bay and not the city's dumping ground. He explained that a city inspector accompanied each boat and saw that no dumping was done until a spot at least twenty miles from shore had been reached. The contractor has agreed, however, to tarfte the garbage five miles further out to sea. Baccus !was instructed to answer a letter from the State Board of Health asking whsEff steps the city was taking toward the establishment of a garbage incineratpr. A resolution was adopted extending an Invitation to all California cities to send delegates to the convention of the League of California Municipalities to He held in this city September 7th to 10th. Permission was granted the San Francisco - Oakland Terminal 'Railways to construct a spur track In Twenty-second street, at Brush. On recommendation of Mayor Davie, the I Sons of Veterans were granted per mission to use tne Memorial Hall in the city hall next Friday evening. LICENSE TRANSFERS ALLOWED The council today allowed the following saloon license transfers: Trans- ; fer of ownership Fillp M. Cucko-vich, 1616 San Pablo avenue, successor to J. V.

Davs, a car repairer, of 659 Twenty-fourth street, was seriously Injured late yesterday while working in the Southern Pacific yards at the foot of Wood street, when a car-lifting jack broke and the handle struck him over the head. He was removed to the Merrltt Hospital in the police ambulance. Davis is suffering from concussion of the brain. con POLITICAL CONTROL OF UNIVERSITIES SCORED (Continued From Page 1) ship is confused -Hit h rclisloiw theories we shall not be able to administer peaceably and hence prolltably, church or cliapel in the state university. Tills is deplorable, but the loss we experience wlil probably soi he more, than offset by the Wti which the different - religious bodies, through our lack, will be stimulated to do each for its own. - "(e) The emergence of compulsory military drill in the midst of a presumptively educational Institution where otherwise everybody, except the president, does pretty much what ho wants' to. Is really a blessing and a relief to teacher and taught. "(f) The absence of a robust and frank tuition fee, gnch a one . as would meet, for instance, ono-half the cost of educating a student, undoubtedly encourages a sentiment which lurks inarticulate In the atmosphere of the place, to the effect that the student has conferred a favor on the state by recofrnrzinir the wisdom of its provisions, and may, therefore, exioct to be nurtured, protected and ultimately aided to employment. These observations ' must ever press home uixm us the query whether It would noft bo better, whether it would noti be fairer to the state and all its taxpayers, whether it wpuld not be better for the students themselvesif we compelled the few the relatively few, who avail themselves of the (state's provisions, to pay a part, e. jr., a half or a third of what their education costs the state.

JXLUl tt WUU1U liliUH fcvwc . .v rate, it is a fact that lack of the tuition fee conditions to lome degree the peculiar atmosphere of the state university. WHOXG KIND OF CONTROL. "Wherever such direct application in the form of legislative interference or control has been attempted, the result has scarcely, ever escaped some form or degree of disaster. Politics as represented hy the legislative is in mood and manner so radically estranged from education and research as represented by the university; that is, the voltage is so different that tho two must in operation be firmly differentiated and a transformer introduced between them. Tills transformer has been found In the form of a commission called the Board of Regents, and the-roecliaiusm has been mounted and use on the whole with most benejticicnt results. ' . "Under existing mundane conditions it is plainly essential to the quietude and effectivenesa of the university that tho board . -w . . 1 ,1 1. 1 1 A o n , , should exist, and that it should , not be forced to share its powers . with another state body like a Board of Control. 'As a board of audit, i. e., post-audit, the Board of Control will servo excellent purpose as assuring publicity and security, and unifying the state's financial administration, tut the assumption of the right of pre-audit means inevitably a crippling- of tho Board of Regent which will reduce It into something analogous to the position of the Harvard Board of Overseers. "Power drifts toward tlie money-bags. ON "FIRING" PROFESSORS. "The right attitude pf service In tho manifold demands of the university cannot be obtained or expected from men uncertain of their tenure; neither can freedom of thought, research or expression, especially in subjects traversed by the daily thought of the community. Without such freedom we lose the full value of the teacher's presence among us. If . the teacher is hampered, whose ideas does he teach? Those of the regents, of the presl- dent, or of the legislature? - But science docs not follow ttie- election returns. Within the range of , the teaclier's special equipment and knowledge, not as oracle at large nor as bearing an arbitrary license, but in the) name of Ids science, he must be free to teach. Otherwise the university is an imitation and a sham. We can better afford to be patient and tolerate a considerable degree of Inefficiency in this or that cliair than incur the suspicion of unseating a teacher for the views ho may hold. "Tho Udrd chief factor in the university organization is the presidency. Tliis office is not to be viewed either as the residence of power or tho fountain of educational policy. As correctly viewed, it is set in the center of the university, not at, its top, and is set there as an Integrating force and a regulator; It holds equal relations to students, faculty and regents, and maintains by natural right a mcmltershlp in each of the three bodies. No president can give an institution his best service where his tenure stands in continual Jeopardy." Many of the dlelegates arrived In time to attend the Anglin performance at the Greek theater Saturday night ag guests of the university regents. Other affairs of a social nature are. also devised for them for the two days they will be In session and afterward!. Yesterday, along with the general university convention delegates, they were Mrs1.
