Sutro formed the company to construct a tunnel to provide ventilation, drainage and an easy means of transporting men and materials to and from the mines in the region of the Comstock Lode. Retiring to San Francisco in 1879, he became active in civic and business affairs and was elected Mayor in 1894. He was also a significant benefactor of the San Francisco Public Library.
