OAKLAND DilLT JEVJENENG TlXIBtTNE. SAT DR DAT, ,Cn.2C;: 18$. J :?iOVJTH OF THE CITY. Eastern Visitors Investing in Oakland. . ."Winter Eesldeneisa in Oakland .The Special Edition Building1 Notes. - 8. A. Snyder of 467 Ninth street ays bat the real estate business is very Jjrisk at present, and it appears to hare Tery good prospects for improvement. "I have made several transfers this " week:, one of them amounting : to U6.0fl0," said Mr. Snyder. "What is the style of these transfer T Are they business property,; or house and lots, or only lots for building purposes?" "Some -were transfers of business - property and others were lots for building purposes. 1 could dispose of any 'mount of business property on and round Broadway, and on Telegraph and San Pablo avenues, if I had it to ell. Uext to business property, the most Active is property for .winter residences for Eastern visitors." "What class of capital ia investing at , present T" : ! 1 "There is a large amount of Eastern capital coming into the town, more than an ordinary- person would suspect. I have had several persons in this week, requesting information in Tegard to property in Oakland and the Ticinity, and 1 nave taken them out and driven them through the best parts f the country. The result of one of 7 ii -I ' - tlfifUlA a,la . rot Twentieth street, between Telegraph, .nil Ran Pablo avenues." 'Do most of these visitors actually mean to invest, or are they only lookers on?" c . - "As far as I can see they actually m-iend to invest, and I have found that they usually do invest after seeing the property. There is a large class of Eastern people who have business in Chicago, St. Louis, New York, Boston, and other Eastern cities, who come out here to invest in property for win ter residences. Several fine pieces of property have been sold for that purpose lately, the buyers selecting sites along the base of the foothills. All of them emressed their surprise at the - beauty of the sites and at the desirability of land around Oakland for their TinruMei. The sale of land for that purpose, of course, increases the build ing traae, ana i Know iuai several - houses are going up in various parts of V lh citv for such nurooses." : ) " - "Where la the greatest demand for propertv?" ' - "The greatest demand for property is along the line of the cable road. There is considerable ilemand for such lots, and sales are making in that locality - every aay." . i " What is property worth in that vi cinitv. and is it increasing in value?" "Yes. the land in that vicinity is in- . creasing in value, though it is doing so in such an irregular manner that it is difficult to estimate tne exact amount. Land is selling at various prices, from S35 a front fooc to toO or $75. while in other parts of the avenue it brines a : great deal more than that. Taking the market as. a whole, 1 think that the inquiry is very brisk, and sales are good, . with a prospect of increasing." I "la there much demand for houses for rent?" "There is a great demand for house of all kinds. I could rent twice as many ' houses if I had them. The only trouble I experience is that I cannot get enough to put on me marKec. "To what do you attribute this influx -of Eastern visitors?" "To two reasons. The special editions - of the newspapers and the Board of '--Trade are both responsible for this, and -y I think that too much credit can not be v I?7611 eacn ' these: . The Board of Trade could not have done half as much without the special editions as it has done with them. 1 consider that these papers have done more for the town : than any other one thing, and the peo ple snouia recognize ine tact. REAX ESTATE TRANSACTIONS, As Oakland and Alameda county are an the eve of a boom in real estate, per- caps it would be interesting to know What the real estate transactions of last year amounted to in good hard dollars. The following table will give that infor-""lination at a glance, but, at the same time, it must oe borne in mind that this table was taken from the records at the County Recorder's office, and in many deeds the valne is placed at a nominal figure or the deed is given for "love ana affection," or for merely nominal consideration, 1 or $5, and in consequence the actual value of the transactions was very much greater: Deeds.

This, afternoon William J.! Dinsee. the real estate dealer, sold at auction i thirteen lots bounded by Myrtle, Tenth and Twelfth streets. These lots are located near the High school and they all brought good prices. There are several of these auction sales that will take place shortly. When the ground is m one big piece, this method is a very popular one for dividing it np into email parcels to suit the popular de-manu and puree. Several large lots of land have been sold in this manner lately and all have brought good prices and found no lack of purchasers. This looks well for Oakland, and indeed the Teal estttle dealers prophesy that this anethod of .selling and buying lots will Veoon become the most popular in Oak- lauu- - - ' BCILDIKU KOTES. - 'George L.

During the afternoon the news that the Salvation Army was in the Superior Court spread, and it wasi not j long before the courtroom teas crowded. Even a number of county1 officers deserted their ; work to attend the (sensational trial.' The trial will probably last two or j three days, and some racy developments are expected! When THB Tribukk went to press yesterday, David , Stegeman, the defendant, was on the witness stand. Continuing his testimony j he said: "My wife used profane language quite oiten.

I Hiraini Davis was next called and testified that he was at. the Barracks with Mr. Stegeman in last July. He came over to see the boy. "We went to the barracks and saw the plaintiff and the little boy there. I don't think. Mrs, Stegeman saw. us. w hue we were sitting there a girl comes in and goes up to Mrs. Stegeman and says something. : A soldier in the army then gave ner a dooe. j. Deueve tnere was a note in the book. She read the note and then went and spoke to Lamere. She then gets the boy and gives him to Lamere and then goes out of the barracks. Then Lamere takes the boy and also starts out of the barracks. Mr. Stegeman grabbed the boy and La mere told nun to let go. A row commenced and all the soldiers assembled and forced Mr. Stegeman out of the barracks. Mr. Stegeman invited Lamere outside, and said he would punch his head off in two minutes. The invitation was not accepted. It seems that the little boy had 10 cents that Lamere . gave him. I have seen iMrs. Stegeman and Lamere together all over Oakland. .' I saw them at 801 Frankbn street together. I saw them go to the Blake llouse together. Yjfe passed the house on Franklin street dtie night at 9 o'clock ; a light was in the house, and Mr. Stegeman peeked through the keyhole in the door and came back and said he saw a man and lady in the "house. I went up I and peeked, through the keyhole and saw a man and lady. We went away and came back again, and Stegeman peeked through the Keyhole again. ( . I "Thev muLst have heard the noise inside, for Mr. Lamere opened the door . and looked out. we were, hiding and he could not see us. We watched the house all that night, and saw the light go from the parlor to the bedroom. I watched the tront door and Mr. Stegeman watched the back door. At 3 o'clock in the morning I raw Mr. Lamere pass Fifth street. I don't know bow he got out of the house. I did not see him come out of the front dojr. .We went back to the house, and Mr. Stege- lan climbed up to the window ot the edroom and looked in. A blanket had een put in front, of the window. A ed was also in the room. I know it ,as. because Mr. Stegeman told me o. ' l The case was continued until Mon- ay at 2 p. m. i COING THROUCH THE MOTIONS. ow Senator It cPhrrson Treats tne Kick Food He la Offered.: The following, interview with Sen- tor McFherson of New Jersey, by rge Alfred Townsend, appears in he Cincinnati Enquirer: "Senator, ow is it that you Beem to be healthier to-day tlifia you were when I first Baw you boming to the Henate?" 'My friend," said he, " have improved my j health by a coinpleteeyB-tern of living. There is no place in the world whicji makes greater calls upon one's vitality than Washington. During the mjonth before Lent I either dined out cjr had visitation dinners at my house for twenty-three davs out of thirty. Had I eaten and drank according jto what was served at those dinners I might have been a dead man. 1 I never ate one mouthful at any dinner I attended." "How did you av6id that?" "Why I went through th pleasing motions.' of disturbing myi food, but I ate nothing at all ; neither did I drink one drop of wine Occasionally somebody would say : to me: J 'You don't enjoy your 1 food, ! and you don't drink.' Now I did ' enjoy the social life of those dinners, but my own strength was imperfect, and I could not, in justice to myself, indulge. When I ra me home fromja djnnor I invariably ate a bowl of mnsh and milk. I did the same before I went to dinner, so that my stomach was well stayed. In that way I have improved in health, although in tlie midst of public life, and nolxxly knows until lie goes into public life what demands are made upon the vitality," About this time ithe Senator and myself took some solace, and I said: "Ito you never drink anything?" "Why", yes," sai'l he, "when I am allowed to stay at home and to live with nvy family I live just as I always have lived. If I breakfast with "my family, I breakfast heartily. I go up to the Senate and attend" to the business of my committee aud take my lunch in th? Senate restaurant at the usual hour", from 1 to 2 o'clock. There I take a glass of whisky, and a good, stiff glas, too, but one only during the day. I eat a sandwich of roast beef. If I can come home to my own house and take a family dinner, I eat what is put before me, but I cannot stand the rich food of these fine re pasts in u ashmgton." CURIOUS FACTS ABOUT RATS. Wonderf nl AVedsre snaaea Tetta l aed Very Sklllf ally. Kottiip Herald. The rat is finely equipped for th eHiliar life he is ordained to- lead. !e lias strong weapons, in the &hai j-f ijour long and very sharp teeth two in the upper jaw and two in, the lowr These teeth are wede shaped, andL by a wonderful provision of nature!, have always a tine, sharp, cutting edge. On examining them care fully, the inner part is found to be of a soft, ivory like composition, wliich can easily be worn away, and the .outside is composed of a glass like en amel, wnicn is exceedingly liartU The ripper teeth work into the tinder so that the centers of the opposed teeth meet perfectly in the act ol gnawing, hence the soft, part is being continually worn away, while the hard part keeps a sharp, chisel like edge all the time,, akid at the same time the teethj" are constantly growing up from the bottom so that: as they wear away a fresh supply is ready. Should one of these teeth be removed, by accident or otherwise, the opposite tooth wjll continue to grow, and, there- being nothing to wear it away, it will pro-i ject from the mouth and be turned upon itself, and if it be an under tooth it will often grow so long as to penetrate the skull.: j There is a fact 'but- little known w hich j well illustrates 'the ravages rats t an inflict '"on a hard suhHta nce by these little, sharp teeth. Many of 'Hie elephants' ' tusks imported into ixmdon are touod to nave their surfaces grooved into sniai-V furrows of unequal length and deptll, as though cut out by a very sharp edged instrument. No man woukl take thii tronble to do this so carefully,: but the rat has found out the tusks which contain the nioRt gelatine a moat delicious morsel for his palate and he gnaws away as ranch as suits him, and leaves the rest for tli3 ivory worker, who is. neither unable nor unwilling to profit by the fact marked by the rat's teeth. The ivory which contains a large amount of gelatine is softer and more elastic than that ; which does not, and as elasticity is the thing needful for billiard balls, he selects this rat gnawed ivory, ana tarns it into beautiful elastic spheres, to be wed upon the finest billiard tables. The elasticity of some ' of ! theBe balls is so great- that, when I thrown forcibly on a hard floor, they !

I ' I TBI PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS, : President Kahn read the fallowing paper on the objects of the Exchange and the best methods by which the trade of Oakland might be increased: ! Fellow Merchant: 1 should have preferred that this organization had selected an abler exponent of business ideas and principles than your humble servant to read a paper at its nrst regular meeting, and if the opinions ex pressed herein are not as exhaustive as ' thjev might be I promise better when me can comes to ine agmu. ! That there is cause 1 for congratulation among merchants on the formation of this extange no member need doubt, as benefits are sure I to be (derived from the mutual exchajige of business ideas a.nd opinions. California has seen but the beginning of her prosperity, and although the Dooni which is now raging in the southern section I of our state has not reached ns, we j:an Say without a pang of jealousy that we trust she may keep on booming forever, ! The tendency of tha Eastern influx is towards the ascending north) and the prospects are very favorable J for our soon sharing an increase of the prosperity of our southern sisters. We are 1 told by Shakesteare i ' "There is a tide in the affaird of men which taken at the flood leads on to fortune." : i Does this not apply also to countries, to States, and to cities i? The question arises. Is Oakland prepared to handle the boom, which though it may be a little distant yet is sure to come? We have great faith in our Board of Trade; of which we are a part, their wdrk being to present to our Eastern brethern plain facts and figures wliich speak fyr themselves. I ' . 1 Alameda county posesse S6d not to be excelled in any parti of this Golden State or .coast, and itsf wondcjrlul productions cannot but excite th wonder and admiration of ail interested in agriculture. Can this beautiful city be excelled as a place of j residence? Cpn it ibe . surpassed as a blace (of manufacture? Or has the; traveler,: though " hag searched from: the Atlantic to the Pacific, ftoTA Canada to the Gulf, ever found a place even to compare with aur parndise here We have the land and a climate as' fine as any. Add to this) the vigor and enterprise which this ihstitutipu has at its command, and the prospects of Oak-: land are all that can be desirtjd. There are, however, niany improvements which should and can fee brought about. The saviner is nrovenhial tlmit a ritv is judged by its hotels, ami thd first step in the right direction will be the building of such a place as will be an ornament and source of profit, to Oakland, and no body of men can accomplish this desirable object betMr than you. As conditions are to-day, a repreenta-j tive of 'an Ekistern coiumerdiul house will caH on you, praise :his watres to the; fckies.. and will end by Inviting and makiii)rn appointment to nrtet you at; some first class hotel in; San .-"rancisco. Had you the welfare Of 'thii city at heart you should refuse to inspect his' samples in any hotel bat thoss of your own city. At a low estimate we would have 10CO commercial aien in towntuej first year, and this together with the Regular transient travel woull be surfi-cient?to make the erection of such a building desirable. With' such prospects before you it would bee isy for an enterprising manager t$ mak s some arrangement with our wealthy investors and give us this mucht desii ed object.; Further, you must not underestimate the influence which drummers command for good or evfl. Arriving at home, our friend the drummier tells his fellow j traveler 1 when h: arrives at-0akland "to d the (city, and then open his trunks in San Fran ;isco, and he will do as much, nay mor( , business as he would do were be; to pa ronize the Oakland hotels. I -1 Again.gentlenien,, th prest nt License law is a detriment tol this city. lo away with the J druihmer'js heemc. The doubt as to whethe a man will sell sufficient goods to warrant his paying a tax - of: $20 is in itfelf a reason! why hi city is not visited by a class of people who, in a manner other than ty license, would improve many other ntere ts of this city, besides "hotels and- r staurantsj Our citj-jwould lie advertised by these people.and travelers imseaxcli of places to locate would in a measure be influenced by such favorable repcrts'. ' 1 am pleased to state that we are t) be represented in the Citv Council h such able merchants ast IJ. C. Brown " nd T. Hi Harrison. These gentlemen know our wents, and I. have no ooubtj.that they will work in the interests of qur MFI.CANTIIjE COMi:jr.ITY. j The attention tof oUr Cil y Father1,! fhould be called to the fact 1 lat Brjad-way and neighboring streets should be sprinklei, often -; enough ; t J protect Hie wares of its merchants. This institution is by nc means a political one ; and yet Ij cannot refrain from pointing out to yon tie imnor1-tanc-e, at times of elections, ot voting such men to office as are kcwn to possess a certain amount of practical business knowledge, and who will use their influence toward the furtherance of Oakland's business interests. (Onr Honorable Board of Supervisors Will do us much good by keeping the cotinty roads in good order, and if the same can be sprinkled this city will derive considerable benefit. 1 J Our merchants are constaaitiy complaining that a large part of the trade belonging here patronizes- San Francisco establishments, and if we are to remedy this, evil, let as begin right here. Gentlemen, are you sure that you purchase all your wants in Oakland? Are you certain that yon have a home preference? Fellow merchants, look to it, patronize one another, and a gradual weaning of the public ifrom the city nil the wrong side lof the bay will be but a matter of a short time. : The relation which shouidj exist between the employer and employe is a fubjtct in itself and I am nob prepared this evening to enlarge upon it. It is an understood thing that no merchant willkcep an employe unless he is satisfied with the work of such person. The business hours are altogether too long, ranging from thirteen to fifteen houcs daily, especially when you remember that your clerks work over 30P days annually. I censider it the duty of employers to grant their employes one week's vacation during the year, with' pay. Try the experiment, gentlemen, and see how it works. It wojuld be of much benefit if merchants wdild agree on m me plan by which -the hours of business could be shortened, thus giving an opportunity fon the! improvement of the mind and body of ourselves and employes. I In conclusion, let ns throw our influence in favor of home parades on holidays we frequently confess irar weak-' ness as a city ky the very fact of our military companies leaving pur home to swell the ranks of processicas in other towns. We can never j oe a city until e put on the airs of one, and the sooner we rectify these faults th sooner will we become merchants of an important center. 1 . DEB ATS. : j Discussion of the paper was then in order. . : j A. J. Wiener said thai . be is compelled to go to San Francisco every time he wishes to exaaaane samples of any kind, as there are not facilities for exhibiting them in Oakland. He did not think that this was advisable, as it too the merchant?, ot 9( Oakland, au4 THE did hot give the visiting drummer a Chance to see the value of Oakland as a business center, and thus a great deal of benefit was lost to Oakland. Mr. Wiener expressed himself in favor of a high license for peddlers and a free license for drummers who : came to sell their goods to legitimate Oakland merchants. ' - - - 4 . . -: ' " r -t " ;. Mr. Jones, of onea's Basar I agree wtlh Mr. Wiener in regard to the poor facilities for exhibiting samples. The rooms here are too small and the ligttts are very poor. I hope that thfs- new hotel we are to boild will remedy this. G.- L. Fish I also have a complaint For the last tw years the wholesale grocery trade has been losing ground and in order to recover former prestige the dealers have been sending men over here in large numbers to canvass the town for orders. There are large nuin-; hers who come here, sometimes as many ss thirty in a day. They go directly to the'housekeepers and aotel and boarding house stewards, and even to the privite families and get orders for small quantities of goods which thev sell at the price of laTge quantities.. They will sell a woman a few hams and hall a barrel of sugar at the same price at which they will : sell a small retail dealer double that quantity. This is manifestly a great detriment to the retail grt eery trad of this city,, as the whole; ttale gijocer of San Francisco will get the benefit of the trade that should go to the retail grocer. The small-grocer I of this city is unable to compete with the wholesale grocer and .the smaller man is crushed out. When this exchange gets a little power; and is more firmly established, I would suggest that we boyeot these grocers that do this. They can easily hire a half starved man for a dollar and a half a dav to solicit these orders, and it should be stepped. I Charles Pierce, the hardware dealer said that he was chairman of a committee that was conferring with the new City CoubcU in regard to preparing; an ordinance that would modify the; present licenses on merchants and! other dealers.. Yesterday morning the committee and the City Council had a long conference, at which it was de-; cided to rednce the licenses in some : channels of trade and increase it in others. Mr. Carothers, who had been; appointed chairman of the new Ordir! nance and Judiciary Committee, ac-; cording to Mr. Pierce, was favorable; to this change in the present System, of licenses. ' ; ,j j POOR GOODS AT AUCTIOX. .j J, L. Lyon I also have a complaint; to make. There should be some means, ' of protection against people who comes into this city with large stocks of cheap-, goods of bankrupt, dealers and throw; them on the market, more generally auctioning them oil. I could reter to several eentlemen who have come into this 1 town lately and auctioned; a large stock of goods, taking na nii.i-h Stfl flfiO out tf t.tlA city. J This is a great detriment to the .- legitimat trade 01 Oakland, as very tew ; of our merchants do any business while ; these fellows are here. The ordinary person will buy goods from these fellows which they do not really need, and as a consequence they depri 1 the legitimate, trade of Oakland of business. As far; as I can see there is' no legal remedy for this ill, but perhaps some of our merchants might succeed in throwing some light on the subject. Perhaps our Committee on Licenses can suggest some wav out of the evil. ! Mr. Pierce We have been considers iner that very cronosition. and can come to no way of stopping it legally.! it you wnl suggest a way we wui-acg: upoiijt, ', W.J. Keller then introduced the foU; lowing resolution : . ; i Hesvlred, That the License Committee'-: of the Board of Trade s be instructed to ; . J? er are an ordinance providing for ' 1. Abolishment of .merchants' and; ; manufacturers' licenses. i 2. Abolishment of licenses on representatives of wholesale houses selling ! to legitimate dealers. : 3. Raising the license of peddlers to ' fo0 per month. 1 4 4. Depriving the Mayor of the privi- ' lege of granting free license. I 5. Abolishing licenses on products of . this county served tD regular dealers, j ( i DISCUSSING LICENSES. . ; J ! The resolution was taken up by sections, i . I 1 j A. J. Wiener I have noticed the ef4 ' feet on the market in general, and this! t should be suppressed if possible. 1 Richard Jones I would suggest 'fhift very high license be levied on these men, and that the license be made payable quarterly or scmi-annuallv. 1 see no other way out of the difficulty. Sol Kahn: That would affect the merchants of this town more than these people would. I myself think that ail merchants should be compelled to pay some license, but I think that the license should be reduced. I do not think that we merchants should go scot free of license, but I do not think that the matter ifhould be overdone. 1 J. L. Lyon I do not agree with you. This licensing of merchants is an old war measure, and it has been (disposed of in all the cities of any size in the East. In this particular" we are,way lehind the cities of the East. It ought to have been done away with long ago. "Not only is the City Marshal compelling me to pay an auctioneer's license, but he is also" compelling me to pay a retail dealer's license simpfy because I have a little stuff left over and some-,t:mes sell a little at retail. Why do they not let the illegitimate businesses, as it were, pay the license lieeessnry for a revenue and let the merchants go free? Take a circus- It takes thousands of dollars mi t of a town, and never leaves a cent here if it can help it, and yet it only pays-a license of $::0. It should: be compelled to pay a lic ense of $50Ui as they are in Los Angeles. 1 j C. AV. Kinsey In regard to these fellows who throw goods on the market and who do not stay here, if there is not a legal way . to get rid of them there is certainly a private wav. As an association, wei ocgbt to make it our business to see that these persons could not get rooms hece in which to display their goods. AVe otight to reut all the availalle rooms and thus prevent their coming. That is the onlv wav to do it. Charles Taylor If they couldn't get a.-o m they would have a tent and a band of music. ' j C. AV. Kinsey Then we would charge them $.'0 for maintaining a circus. 111 regard to the .Mayor being prevented Iroin issuing free licensesMr. Lesser objected on the grounds hat there were several old men who- were i.nable to pay a license, and who barely made a living out of their trade, and they should have the benefit of a free lw-ense. The section was- adopted, revoking the power of the Mayor in that regard. j. .1 The resolutions all were adopted without dissent. , Upon motion of Mr. Lyon it was decided to request the council ta levy a license of JoOton circuses. JT i Mr. Pierce suggested that this would be laid on the Salvation Army. President Kahn suggested thai, the Exchange be moderat about the mat- ter. and that it would not be well to rppear to want to "run the city." j j 1 STREET SPRINKLING. ' . J. L. Lyon moved 'that a committee of three merchants be appointed to confer with the City Council on the importance ef sprinkling the streets, as the dustf was ruining the gaods of the merchants. He said that it would save repairing the streets, if they were sprinkled. The motion was carried and Chairman Kahn appointed J. L. Lyon, C. AV. Kinsey, and A. J. AViener on that committee. - I i The matter of a Fourth ot July cele-bratienwas broached, fund Mr. Lyon suggested that if any action was to be taken on the matter, it wtmld be well . to begin caily or the Oakland regiments would be tent off somewhere else. No action was taken on. the matter. jj Secretary Davie presented an invitation from the Livermoie Board of Trade to the members ot the OaiUand Board of Trade, and the Merchants' Exchange, to attend the boom meeting at Sunoi this evening, i Aj. AViener moved that a committee f five be appointed to go. Carried. The chair appointed Messrs. Wiener, McGovern, Kel'.er, Fish, ami Fierce, with as many more as care& to go. ... The Exchange then adjourned until April 8th. j i Peaple in the audience vsho perspired at the Chestnut Street Theater, Philadelphia, the past few nights wondered why it was. The nsual cool blast that is waited through the auditorium when the curtain rises was . absent. ! On the second night Sara Bernhardt said i to the engineer : "Say to re manager, viz re compliments of Mme.
