The Resolution introduced at. The meeting of the Board of supervisors i favouring the project of a. Tunnel be tween and Alameda and Contra Costa counties but agreeing to appropriate no Money to further the project until right of Way by deed from property owners for a Road was secured from to the proposed Tunnel came up today. Before the Board supervisors. It had been before the committee of the whole in conjunction with the District attorney in Bhe meantime and the attorney reported that the building of the Tunnel was provided for under a Law passed at the last legislature which provided a Way raising funds by for the building and repair of county roads and tunnels. The Resolution therefore came up today on its adoption and was adopted with a certain mental reservation or. Mitchell was . Messes. Church Horner and Talcott were present. Or. Church s views. I said or. Church vote Aye with the understanding that until Contra Oosta meets us half Way and does her share this agreement shall be null and void. To her be fore and we know what she has Talcott talks. Before i vote for the Resolution in its present said or. Talcott i would like to say a word or two and yet without being considered As opposed to the Resolution. But to pass the Resolution without any details of Cost or specifications whatever would seem to be putting the cart before the horse. In every other res Luil on. Of this kind which we bring before the Board we Are obliged to have specification and detail plans of the work Laid out. I think this should have been done the present week when the Resolution was before the committee of the whole. I think that was the intention of the chairman in referring the Resolution to the committee. This ought to be done when two counties will be expected to co operate. It seems to me there ought to be a petition to be filed and that there ought to be viewers appointed before we could obligate the county to pay out Money Tor the work. I do not mean to oppose the proposition but we can t put engineers to work on the project in its present form More especially As it is a work in which we must consult the members of the Board of supervisors in Contra Costa then and now. Or. Talcott. Said he was willing to admit that he h and had considerable to do in the dropping of the project three years ago where there seemed to be no permit under the Law to expend Money for a Tunnel. There were some people in outlying sections of the county who objected to the expenditure of a Large sum for the building of a Bridge Over Oakland Harbor and there were lend ing citizens in Oakland who objected to the spending of Money for Large Bridges out in the county. Since then the Law Hud been changed and it was due to the merchants Exchange that the change in the Law permitted the build ing of tunnels. He did not understand that any member of the Board would Vole against aiding the project but in voting for the Resolution he did so with the understanding that the Resolution was to be put in the condition which such work demanded that it should be put into according to the practice of the Board. Harmonious. Or. Walker of the merchants Exchange said that the Resolution was simply an expression of the opinion of the Board on the project and what the Board would do when other require ments were complied with. Supervisor Rowe said that the Reso Lution was an expression of opinion to the merchants Exchange and the people interested in the project As to what the Board would do when other parties interested took United action. He did not believe that the county should build any More than half the Tunnel Anri he understood that the people in Contra Costa county by appropriations and subscriptions could raise their share of of the pro sect. The Resolution was then adopted As originally introduced messes. Church Rowe Horner and to Alcott voting in the affirmative or. Mitchell being absent. Or. Walker thanked the Board in be half of the merchants Exchange and or. Arpir explained that or. Talcott s views were those of the men who were working for the improvement.
