874 Washington Street. As usual with the above firm on ail holiday occasions to ofler some extra inducements to their patrons, they have adopted the following planwhich they deem worthy of attention, and likely as on all former similar occasions, to give undoubted satisfaction From now to January 2, 18Sy, WE GIVE, in addition to our regular premiums, to every purchaser to the amount of SI a chance in the drawing, which will entitle the winner to the possession oi tnis most Handsome work of art. Four other vS liable frifts will lie addwl making nennrtA rliirl nJ trig, having been erected twenty-five years ago, when Eleventh street was out In the country. It was first used as a voung ladies seminary, but at a time when Mrs. Blake was ill became a hotel.

The old Blake House has bad many peculiar experiences, and it has seen many changes in this city. It was built tbe rear in which Joe Dillon was elected Assessor of tbe city of Oakland, and the Blake House has stood there for twenty-five years, as Joseph M. Dillon has been continuously City Assessor of Oakland for that entire time. The Blake House was moved and is being partially rebuilt, additions are being made to it, and the entire building will be repainted and refurnished, a stone sidewalk laid around it, and the grounds nwly laid out. In the space formerly occupied by it Mrs.

K. Blake, the ownerof the premises, will erect a new block lronting on Washington street, to join the Davis block cn the ajutb. and to touch Tweltth street on the north. The plans lor this building have already been drawn by J. Valln J.

Mathews, and work wil be commenced in the spring. Tbe building will be modeled somewhat after the style of Blake Moffitt block on the corner of Brcadway and Eighth street. It will be three stoiies in height, and will contain about ninety rooms and eight stores. It will have a frontage of 150 feet on Washington street. The building materials will be brick and stone, and tbe cost will be about the same as that -of the Crellin building, $100,000.

One man played a very neat little game on the citr, but withal did a very good turn for Washington street. J. ll Davie owned a coal yard on the southeast corner of Tenth and Washington streets. Mr. Davie had his coal stored in the lot, which was hidden fraiu the street by a rough, high board fence.

One day the old was torn down, and a fine new fence was run the whole length of Washington street. By and by a little made its appearance on the top ot the fence and the Fire Warden decided that it was his duty to make an investigation. He went in the back way and found that there was in reality a wooden building behind that new fence, and all that was necessary'was to cut little holes in the fence to make small stores. The Fire Warden stopped work, the building being inside of the tire limits. Mr.

Davie then applied to the Citv Council and as all the buildings had been practically erected he was alllowed to go ahead and finish theni. It was a very neat little scheme, and after all was au improvement to the street. There has been but one Dullding of any importance erected on Broadway in 1SSS, and that was built through force of circumstances'. Mrs. James Canning was engaged in remodeling and raising the Canning block on the southwest corner of Broadway and Thirteenth street.

The work was well under way and the buiiding was open to the skies, when one night in June the woodwork caught fire. -It was about 8:45 o'clock on the evening of Monday, June lltli. and before 10 o'clock the entire building was burned to the ground, and all that was leit standing was a portion of the north walL Mrs. Canning did not allow the ruins to remain lone untouched. As soon as the insurance wss settled the Canning block was begun.

It was modeled very much after the Delger blocks, and was two stories high with offices iu the upper floor and stores below. Mrs. Canning also erected an addition fronting on Thirteenth street. E. Kollofrath of Sau Francisco was the architect.

While a great deal of money for building was laid on the shrine of business, undoubtedly with expectation of abundant blessings in return, a considerable amount was expended on the resident portion of town. According to Walter J. Mathews, the social sensa The! Two Largest Meat Markets in 41ameda County. "Wholesale and Retail. The Largest and Choicest Stock of Meats received daily from the Stock Yards.

and Durant streets, over the same ex-graveyard, a handsome residence was erected for W. I. Wilson at a cost of $5500. W. H.

Creed has built a handsome residence costing $7000 on- Hobnrt street, near Telegraph aveivne. Mr. Sutton has had a $7000 residence built near Berkeley. F. Cbappelett has erected a very handsome $5000 house on Telegraph avenus.

J. McBean has built a residence costing on Durant and Alice streets. George D.Met-calf and Mr. Smiley and those interested in tbe improvement of the Coll Deane tract have had that tract surveyed into lots, and four handsome houses are being erected there at a cost of $3500 each. Victor Metcalf purchased, during tbe past year, the old Colt Deane residence on Webster street, north of the convent, and has had it rebuilt at a cost of $5000.

The only house Walter Mathews ever built in Almeda was Suilt last year for C. A. Shattuck, and Mr. Mathews has been to Alameda so few times that he cannot remember where it is located. The Fabiola Hospital was built last vear.

on Moss avenue, at a cost, of $20,000. The Messrs. Mathews have had plenty of work outside of Oakland and this county. They have built tbe following bouses in Han Fransico at the prices named: D. W.

Earl, Henry Scott, C. A. Chambers. John A. Hooper.

Mrs. Moses Hopkins. Captain Burns, E. Brown. Mrs.

Guene, $5O0; Albert Miller, and others. They have also done considerable in the hotel line, but not for Oakland. They nave drawn plans for the Koniona Hotel at San Luis to cost $130,000 plans for the Iiodondo Beach Hotel to cost $200,000, aad also for the Montalro Hotel at Ventura to cost $50,000. This, Walter Mathews says is a little "dandjr." Miss Smvthe was a pretty, patient little school teacher in San Francisco, who had worked bard and suved some money. She was engaged to be married and decided the best tuing "she could do would be to build a little bouss with her savings.

So she put tbe matter in the bands of William Kirk and tbe house was begun. But the little lady never lived to see her house completed, and before the plastering had been put on she became sick and one day quietly went to her mansion in the world beyond, while her mother and little sister now occupy the terrestrial home that would have been hers. Among the houses that have been built by Mr. Kirk for others are the following: Martin Neunan, store and building on tbe corner of Seventeenth and Campbell streets, $3500; William Wilkins, residence. Center, near Seventeenth street, $3500; Parke Fellows, residence, Webster and Merrimac streets, $1000; Christian Glanz, residence.

Magnolia and Twelfth streets, $3i00; W. H. Martin, cottaee. Union and Twelfth streets, $3000; Dr. Overend.

residence, Clay and Eighth streets. $1000. W. W. Goodrich says that this has been a bad year for building on account of tbe high price in lumber, and the uncertainty of the election.

The free tiade question, from Mr. Goodrich's point of view, cut a very big figure in the amount of work done, and as soon as the question was decided, there was renewed confidence round, and building was resumed. Mr. Goodrich has done most of his work outside of Oakland. It was be who built the entire town of Los Guilicos, in the Souoma valley.

has also devoted himself to developing the suburban tract on which he has erected seven houses, and a system of water works. Tbe only municipal work that has been done is tbe repairing and painting of the Free Library and the buiiding of the Milton Engine House on the corner of Twenty-fifth and Market streets. William Kirk had Ibis in charge. The engine house is 60x34 feet iu size and is of the most approved modern style, with two stories and a basement. It cost $0000.

The usual amount of repairing was done on the schools, and the Harrison school has been moved to a new lot, while plans have been drawn for a new school in the Third ward. Charles Man built one of the handsomest bouses in the city on Filbert street. It cost $15,000, and has been purchased by B. E. Handy.

J. P. Ames has erected a handsome $7000 house on the old McKee property, oa the southwest corner of Twelfth and Adeline streets, at a cost of $7ouO. William J. DiLgee has had the old Jack Hays place iu Havs canyon, remodeled at a cost of $10,000.

The work has been very elegant, and has doubled the size of the old bouse. A new dining room has been built, with marble floors and sideboards, and a large, elegant drawing room also has been added. The house is fitted throughout with plate glass, which is very unusual in private dwellings. The records of the Plumbing Inspector's office show that the following have erected bouses in Oakland in 1S88: "TrThe largest 5ffe i 9 la ljecy: domestic, English, French.

1373BR01DWAY N. J. SWENSONfc New and Second Hand FURNITURE The Villain ol the Bomanrels a Hnnsry Wolf. Lii Other Fairy Tales This Story Has a Moral ud It Eu Alio STrl Models. The nursery baoics for children, if they are at all complete, contain the pathetic, gastronomic tale of the three little pigs.

These three little pigs were started out on their various ways Jin life; and each one began by building a house just where every little pig should begin, be he human or- otherwise. The story then goes on to tell the manner and material which the little pigs employed. It was a very free and easy manner of procedure for the first little pig met a ruan with a load of furs. He made a requistion on the man for the furs, which were obligingly handed over, and the little pig built. The style of architecture was not stated, but Walter Mathews is sure that it must have been a very poor style because he was not called upon to prepare tbe pi ins.

In the course of time a wolf came along and proceeded to blow the house down and eat up the little pig. This is the point where Waller Mathews is very much affected and the result, he says, shows the value of good work and materials. Tae second little pig had a similar series of adventnres with a man with a load cf wood and a wolf. The third little pig was destitute of files of any kind, and invested in the same inexpensive manner, in a load of bricks. The wolt, as usual, came around, but failed to devour the little pig because of bin inability to blow the house down.

This is what Walter Mathews says has happened to the people of Oakland, and they are learning that brick and stone are cheaper in the long run than wood. Not only are the people of Oakland taking warning by the Urrible fete of the two first Utile pigs of architectural tendencies in regard to the quality of the material employed, but they are improving their style of architecture. No more are seen the rjlain hard sky line and the eld fasbisned hip roof, but instead, designs are prepared, and the originality of the architects is brought out. The old false front must go. and the little turret and the multitude of gables are rapidly taking Us place.

Tne Queen Anne and the Eastlase cottage are supplanting the hard, square cottage of a few years ago. The change has been not only in the dwelling houses, but also in the business blocks, and little, narrow, one ard two story blocks are no longer erected, their place being taken by three and four story buildings of handsome and modern design. No one can look at the business blocks that have been erected in the last few years aad say that the style of architecture is not improving. Not solely in the year now drawing to a close bas this change taken place, but within the past three or four years it has been gradually occurring, until in the year o( our Lord it became most marked. The real estate man and the boomer are very enthusiastic over thi, and they point with pride to wnat has been done in the past, and proudly assert that in the future advancement will be even more rapid than in the past.

There is no limit to tbeir assertions, even if there is a limit to man's belief. Will Oakland have 100.000 population in five years, and will it be the finest fity in the State, architecturallv. Who trows? There has been one thing noticeable this year, the improvement of Washington street. In fact, the only business blocks of any prominence that were erected in 1S.J3 were on this street. In the year 1887 the building of stores and other places of business was confined to San Pablo and Teleeraph avenues.

Business seemed to take a spurt out those aenucs, and as a natural result many business blocks were erected. This year trade seems to have gene cut as far as it intends to. and it has now been spreading out in the central portion of the citv. and it immediately took a jump to Washington street. The first building tQ be erected in this neighborhood was the Davis block on the northwest corner of Eleventh and Washington streets.

This block is a remarkable one in many respects. It was the first of a series of handsome buildings erected and in course of erection on Washington street. It was-also one of the first buildings that declared that the old atyle, hard line buildings must go. It was erected by W. K.

uavis, tnen Mayor of Oak'and, and was designed bv J. C. Walter J. Mathews. Mr.

Davis had some ideas of his own on building, and he studied tbe matter over carefully until he decided what he wanted. He required strength, convenience, safety in case of fire or earthquakes, aad beautv. For these four things he planned, and these he obtained, with the assistance of Waltei J. Mathews. The building was completed the early part of last year, and is the best built, and most conveniently arranged budding in the city.

The cost was about $30,000. There is one peculiarity about this building. The foundation is deep enough and broad enough, so that in case it should be deemed advisable the roof couid be raised and two more stories added. Mr. Davis superintended the erection of this building personally, and was very proud of it.

"That builiiug," said Mr. Davis to a friend, "would havejbeen put upffor lees if 1 had had cbeap building and a plain sky line; but I was tired of the old style, and wanted something new and handsome. And I tell Mr DTil'. gimnced fondly at 'the' graceful lines of the handsome building, "I shall be prjud when I feel in my hands the first $20 piece 1 receive from that building for rent. It will be the first money that I ever received that I didn't work hard for." After that it was discovered that there was room fcr buildings of that kind on Washington street, and that stores on that street could be rented.

Then Mrs. Pedar gather built an addition to the Willson House at a cost of $20,000. 1 his also was designed bv J. C. Walter J.

Mathews, but it was simply a duplicate of the old building; Then there was a pause in building, a long painful pause, and lumber climbed up to the very tip top of the scale of prices, and there it tat and higgled its fingers at the builder. By and by la mber took a tumble and came down off of its pens, and the builder, who had been improving his time by retting his plana ready, immediately beran operations. The first one to resume operations on Washington street wss Thomas Crellin, who had purchased the lot on the northwest corner of Tenth and Washington streets. Mr. Crellin had already computed plans for a four story block, and as toon as the price of lumber fell he let the contract and resumed the work of excavating.

The lot was already partially excavated, as it was intended to build there about five years ago, though tbe design was afterward abandoned. There will be about ninety room in the Crellin block and five Store. Preparations for the building of the Blake block were begun about the same time, tbe first- step being to move the Blake Lions arc and to the northeast corner of Clay and Eleventh streets.

BIaSCHAKD, itanagei FAWCETT luce or Bemoval tion of the year was the remodeling of tne residence ot u. u. rsromweii, on the corner of Eighth and Madison streets. The house was one the oldest and handsomest in the city, but it was no longer modern, so Mr. Bromwell bad it rebuilt at a very great cosU Walter J.

Mathews decide! that no bouse in the whole broad city should eclipse the Bromwell mansion in arrangement or elegance, but while be did this he refused to aivulge the design or plan of the bouse until it was fully, completed. The central idea was to make the dwelling as convenient as possible and to make it as comfortable to receive in as anv house in town. It is one of the few houses in Oakland built with this special object in view, Isaac I'pham's residence being one of the few. TheVromwell mansion is so arranged twrt the entire ground floor of the house can be thrown iuto one large room. The hall and doorwavs and rooms are all larpe and make' a very handsome effect.

Upon entering the building one steps into a large reception room with a dining room on the riguU Back of this are the kitchen, pantry, while on the other side of the house is the sitting room, back of which is tbe billiard room. Off of the billiard room is a sort of bay window recess fitted up as a den for tne especial use of Mr. Bromwell. What the style or the fittings of the den areMr. Mathews refuses to say, on the grounds that it is an inner sanctuary that is to be visited only by a few favored ones.

But the Bromwell mansion has a history further back than this. The first plans for the original structure were prepared by a woman, and even Walter Mathews says that they were good. The house was built by George M. Pmney from the designs of his handsome and accomplished wife, Flora M. Pinney, who has been since divorced from him and is now on the stage, known as Miss Fiora Livingstone.

The purpose of Mrs. Pinney was to have an Italian villa, both unique and comfortable. Years and years after the domestic troubles and other troubles of the Pinney and long after the property had passed out ot tbeir hands, it was sold to ilr. Bromwell, who wanted something more modern, and had it rebuilt at a very large cost. East Oakland came in for a good share of rnpTovemeiit this year, and tF Of.

the handsomest houses in the city were erected under the supervision of Mr. Mathews, being built by Hiram Tubbs. one for the occupation of Judge and Mrs. F. W.

Henshaw and the other for Mr. and Mrs. Everett Grimes. Tbe bouses are both as handsome as money aud art could make them, and cost $8000 each. Judge Henshaw's house is situated on Fifth avenue on the heights overlooking East Oakland, aud Mr.

Grimes's is on East Fourteenth street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues. Once upon a time in years gone by there was a graveyard where now Webster and Durant streets cross. The citv grew and the graveyard was found to be inconveniently located, so one day it was moved out to the present site on tbe hillsides of Mountain View. Most cf the bodies were removed, but there wera forgotten graves here and there that the rain had beaten flat, and the grass and weeds had overgrown. But the streets went through and the old graveyard was soon in the midst, of the city.

It was during the past year that this section began to build up. J. C. Walter J. Mathews, have had a very important part to play in the building up of tbe site of the old graveyard, and those gentlemen have directed the erection of three houses on as many corners of those intersecting streets.

It is true that occasionally in the digging of a cellar one of these forgotten graves would be opened and some dismembered bones exhumed, but that did not spoil the locality. The first bf these houses was for Mrs. J. M. DriscoU.

It is a very elegant house, and cost some $13,000. On the northeast corner of Webrter and Durant streets is a residence for F. A. Huntington, which cost $7000, and one on the southeast corner is owned by A. J.

Hyde; it cost the same sura. At a short distance, the corner of Harrison THE LARGE AND ELECANT FURNITURE AND CARPET WARERQOHS Thomas Ahern, N. Ashtoo. Mis. (J.
