IS III ERROR
Mayor Struble was In error when
he said that the state law provides
that electrical wires shall be Strang
22 feet above the ground, according;
to a statement by E. T. Lndden, local
manager of the Pacific Telephone ss
Telegraph company, today. The state
ment was made by the mayor In a
written resume of reasons for vetehnjr.
the original ordinance passed by ta
council, providing for the saaaaer-
and cost of cutting wires to permit at
moving buildings through the street
of the city. - '- .,
According to Mr. Lndden the sta
tute fisea the height at 18 feet, nasi
he asserts that the matter has been.
called to the mayor's attention and
Mr. Struble has admitted his error,
but is still. Insisting In the aew
ordinance, which replaced the est
vetoed by the mayor and was Intro
duced and read at the. last meeting ef
the council, that 22 feet shall he ta
specified height In theelty ordinance.
The telephone manager eaya that Use
members of the council are favor
able to the 18 foot provision.,
Mayor Htand on FraatniM
"While the state law, as I under
stand It, Axes the height for
wires and cables at 20 feel and I
vice wires connecting with buildings
at 18 feet, the franchise under which
the telephone company operates ta
the city specifies that the height ot
wires shall be 22 feet." said Mayor
Struble this morning in cesameaUaa;
upon Mr. Lndden's statessent.
The telephone company sasoatsg

that they should carry ont the cent
tract. I am. acting in this matter
with a desire to be fair to both tha
housemovers and the corporations.
but I believe that franchise Is n bind
ing contract and abould bo observed.
"Outside the slrflce wires, I have
not found, the telephone wires lew.
Mr. Ludden says It Is almost Imprac
tical to put all theso service wires at
the specified height. Wbilo this may
be true I am certain that the mov
ing contractors should not be re
quired to pay for raising such wires,
or for their cutting. My only de
sire In this matter la to see an ad
justment that will be fair to both tha
house movers and the companies."
Companies Hard Hit
, Tne telephone, power and tele
graph companies are considerably ea
erclsed over the situation. Mr. Lnd
den states that all of the telephoaa
company'a wires are 18 feet off tha
ground, except where service wire
run down off the poles to connect
with low buildings in the residential
districts. Should the city raise Use
height to 22 feet, however, It woaJdl
make changes necessary that wonht
cost the companies thousands of dol
lars, and naturally they aro figatass
tha possible adoption ot the ordin
ance, which ba passed Its first read
