9mm 1 SATURDAY MORNTEfG, ROADS TO ONTRA COSTA Completion of the New Thorn Hill Grade From East Oakland Abandoning an Old Thoroughfare That Hai a History of Disaster and Death. MAGNIFICENT SYSTEM OF HIGHWAYS, Vht the Merchants Exchange and the Good Ftoadi' Association Hu Already Dona for Alameda County. Alameda County Bureau "The Examiner," 914 Broadway, Oakland. OAKLAND, November IS. The old Thorn hill trade baa at last been abolished. The new road that doe ay with the dangerous trade waa completed to-day and la "now ready for travel. By the end of the week all of the "trimming up" will have been finished. The completion of this road marks an era In rood-road building in Alameda coun ty. The Oakland Merchant' Exchange and the Oakland Good Road Association have accomplished what Alameda and Contra Coeta counties have been spasmodically atrlving after for a quarter of a cen tury. The old Thorn hill grade was the first road to he built out of Oakland, connecting the town with the valley of Contra Costa county. It was built by Hiram Thorn, a pioneer East Oaklander, who secured from the Legislature In the early fifties a franchise for building a toll road from Moraga valley into East Oakland. The road was constructed about 1856 at a heavy expense. It was maintained aa a toll road until about ten years ago. Hiram Thorn and all of his associates In the enterprise have long since died. The grades were so bad that people would go miles around rather than travel our the road, tolls or no tolls, and an it was turned over to Alameda county, Toe grade upon toe Alameda side was nearly 25 per cent for the greater part of the distance, and the Contra Costa side was but little better. Accidents Innumerable baro occurred on the grade, and the road holds the record of having had more people killed upon it by accidents due to Us steepness than all the other roads In Alameda and Contra Costa counties combined. There is a trail of death down each tide of the canyon through which the road rune. The death of John Crebbln, the Oakland restaurant man, and of Mrs. Wright of Berkeley are comparatively recent. Both were killed by being thrown out of their vehicles because of the steepness of the grade. Mr. and Mra. Brendemuhl of Fruit-vale were seriously Injured not long since, end a few weeks ago G. B. Daniels, one of the committee that put the new road through, came very near losing his life upon the very grade that he had been working so industriously to abolish. Mr. Coffin, who occupies the Kohler place at the foot of the Oakland side, says that accidents occur every Sunday and sometime two or three times during the week. Some years ago a stage was overturned on the grade and a party of six killed. : A few months ago the Merchants' Exchange appointed a committee, consisting of D. C. Brown, G. B. Daniels, J. F. W. Sohst, Wilbur Walker and J. S. Wixon, to co-operate with John A. Britton, President of the Good Roads Association, In securing a better road. A number of surveys were made, but difficulties were encountered in securing rights of way. At last Mr. Sohst secured a complete right of way from J. H. Medeau. The Merchants' Exchange promised that they would fence his property, but finally the Supervisors agreed to V V . -- :: ('till- f T- East oakuond NEW ROADS BETWEEN ALAMEDA AND CONTRA COSTA.

Supervisor Hemme of Contra Costa county has under way a new cut-off that will Join this new road, doing away with the grade on the Contra Costa side. The new-road will have an average grade of 5 per cent, and in but one spot does It reach 8 per cent. This will be the center of a great system of Intercounty roads that the Supcrviors will construct. The old Kennedy road runs within half a mile of the new Thorn hill road. When this half-mile is built it will give a wonderful mountain boulevard with a magnificent view. This can only be done when Edson F. Adams will allow It, for he owns the land over which the old Kennedy road runs. He has refused to permit Its completion up to date.

Henderkln, the man with a lost memory, presented an Interesting study for the physlclane in the Superior Court thia afternoon when he was examined In regard to his sanity. For Just one year Hendierkln ha lived on the memory of a day. He recollects the event that occurred on the day that the mysterious attack came upon him, but outside of that day history Is a blank to him. Mr. Henderkln has been a prominent resident of Berkeley for a long time and until a couple of years ago he held a responsible position In the Mint. One day last November, a he entered his home, he wa suddenly stricken down. Hla entire body turned perfectly blue and his relatives thought he wa dead. The next day Henderkln appeared to be all right physically. Hla mind, however, was a blank to everything except the business of the day before. Hie case seems to be beyond the aid of medical skill. Henderkln wa a member of the Democratic County Central Committee when afflicted, but his resignation was never submitted. The great fight between R. M. Fitzgerald and W. W. Foots to capture the County Committee waa on. Mr. Foote's friends went out to Berkeley and got Henderkln'a proxy. Then Mr. Fltzgerald'a friends paid a visit to Henderkln and they, too, got his proxy. The contest continued on these lines until Henderkln had given nine proxies. In the evening the County Committee was called together, and the engagement between Foote and Fitzgerald was called up. Then the proxies commenced to be sprung and1 old friends wondered what kind of politics Thomas Henderkln wa trying to play. The question was finally settled when the Fitzgerald men. presented a proxy signed at 7:30 o'clock la the evening. Foote, however, had a couple of votes to spare, and won the day. Henderkln mortgaged his home for $450 before his llmess, without telling hla wife about It. and of course when he lost his memory the mortgage was forgotten. A short time ago a suit wa Instituted to foreclose. This was a great shock to the wife. Just aa the home was about to be seized by the Sheriff Mrs. Henderkln drove forty miles In the night, riding In a little broken-down cart, borrowed the necessary money and returned Just In time to pay the mortgage. For several months Henderkln has Insisted that midnight is noonday, and so svery night his wife has been compelled to cook a dinner. Henderkln will be sent to the asylum at Stockton.

Hd Criticises the Gretk-Letter Frater- nity System Among Berke ley Students. TAKE THE PLACE OF DORMITORIES. California. Shou'd Follow the Methods of Other States and Endow Her University More Munificently. Alameda County Bureau "The Examiner," 914 Broadway, Oakland. OAKLAND, November 13. The report of President Martin Kellogg; to the Governor of California upon the condition of the university for the last two year has just been published. The President touches on many topics in the course of hl report. He has a great deal to say about the financial cou- ditlon of the university, end In speaking of the student body has considerable crit icism to make of the present fraternity system. Three methods are proposed by Pres ident Kellogg for the university's future. First, to retrace the steps which have pledged the Institution to tbe principle ot absolutely' free tuition; secondly, a reduction In the number of students; thirdly, the natural method, which would be to In crease the amount of State aid. "Other States," says President Kellogg, "are now assigning to the support ot their universities a larger fractional tax than ours. For example, Michigan gives a tax of one-sixth ot a mill on the dollar; ours la only one-tenth. Minnesota gives three- twentieths of a mill, or half again as much as ours. Indiana gave one-halt of a mill for thirteen years for endowment. Wis consin grant a permanent tax of one. eighth of a mill, with an addition of one- tenth for six years for buildings and an other tax yielding $10,000 a year. Missouri gave Us university In four years appropriations amounting to nearly $1,300,000." Tbe President then reviews the growth and efficiency of the different departments. In speaking of the lack of dormitories at Berkeley President Kellogg touches upon a verp pressing; question, but one which he feels has been partially solved by tbe fraternity system. He says In this con nection: "In the absence of dormitory buildings there is an Increasing tendency among the students to find homes In fraternity houses. several new fraternities have been intro duced within the past two years. These fraternity families depend for their healthful tone on the individual members. At best they form pleasant and profitable homes for high-minded and earnest students. With an Inferior constituency tney may exert an unfavorable influence, leading to a waste of time, or even a deterioration of character. It is highly important that a young man should have time to act deliberately in the choice of fraternity compan ions. Such deliberation is at present im paired by the haste with which pledges are obtained from new comers. Parents should advise their sons to defer their fraternity membership until they: have come to feel at home in the university and can be sure of the fellowship they enter. This close bond of dally comradeship is one wfiic!) Is to have a marked Influence on their student lives. The fraternities themselves should agree to postpone pledging for at least the first term of the freshman year. It requires a mutual understanding in order that no unfair advantage be taken. - Such a change from the present method would be beneficial, alike to the new students and to the fraternities. Natural affinity should take the place of hasty and incongruous affiliation. Snndny-Sehool Teacheri. BERKELEY, November 13.
