Some few months ago there was or ganized what is known as the Contract' ors- Association of Oakland. The lumber dealers entered Into an agreement with this body to allow a discount to any of its members, but charged full price to other contractors so that.

In order to get a lumber rebate, a contractor obliged to join the association. The non-memoer coeuractors therefore were handicapped by the discrimination in favor of the association members. The lumber dealer also agreed that they would not sell laths, excepting to mem bers of the plasterers' association, and the lime dealers also agreed that they would not sell, lime to contractors other than members; so that the independent contractor was deprived of the discount on materials that had heretofore been allowed him, end the privilege of pur chasing hie own laths and lime. Not caring to patronize the dealers who had discriminated against tnem as well as refusing to sell them the goods that they had heretofore purchased without ques tlon, they have Incorporated a general supply company. This company enters Into the field as a dealer, not only to sup ply their own customers, but the public generally," believing that every man's money is as as another's.

The company will sell material to any per son who has money to- buy. The com1 pany does not intend to Cut prices or snow favoritism toward customers.

While it has been a Ions' while In coming-. It will be established on an elaborate scale will amply repay the people for the delay. This new place of' amusement is Idora Park on Telegraph avenue and Fifty-seventh street, or about midway between the business centers of Oak land and Berkeley. The lessers and managers of the park are the Ingersoll Brothers of Pittsburg, who operate seventeen parks In as many cities throughout the East. One of the parks they manage is the famous Kennywood Park of Pittsburg, through the gates of which 2,000,000 people pass annually.

Their circuit of parks is perhaps the most complete in the world and they they are therefore enabled to furnish the very best high class attractions and to be constantly adding new features and -hanging the programs. Idora Park will be under the personal direction of A. Ingersoll, who states that the gates will be thrown open May 16th. "It is our intention give the people of San Francisco, uakland aid sur rounding cities and towns an amusement ground second to none orithe coast, win nave a coal mine, a scenic railway, a laughing gallery, a vaudeville theater with roof garden and many other amusements. We will make a special effort to secure -the best talent for our hlh class vaudeville show atid there wll be a concert every Sunday.

The park consists of about twentv- three acres and it is laid out In lawns. drives, walks, shrubbery, flowers. palms, etc. It Is an ideal place to spend a Sunday afternoon. Another of ouf specialties will be catering to women and children.

Idora Park will be a safe place for parents to send their children as we intend to make it a point to see that they are well cared for. We will supply donkey rides. swings, merry-go-rounds and other amusements for little ones. 'We are taking considerable pride in out theater. We are expending J60 000 on it alone and we will make expenditures1 for amusements to the extent of $150,000 during the first year.

This theater will be one of the best lighted buildings of its kind in the country, as there will be at least 8,000 lights. "The roof garden will be similar to those in the East. The garden will afford one of finest views of Oakland, Berkeley and the San Fran cisco bay in the city. A portion of the garden wiU be devoted exclusively to observation purposes. The grounds will be open day and night and there will be a performance at the theater every evening, as well as Saturday, Sunday and other special matinees.

These special matinees will be given on holidays and days when we have booked picnic parties. "Besides the amusements I have described, we will eventually have a menagerie or zoological garden and will have a freak museum. There will also be refreshment booths." Mr. Ingersoll belongs to a family of showmen and has had years of exper ience In many cities. His brother.

F. Ingersoll left Oakland Sunday for Grand Rapids, to open one of the parks of their circuit and his father left Los Angeles for Detroit today upon a similar errand. Mr. Ingersoll states that a park in Los Angeles will be added to the circuit In about six months. By May 16th, it Is expected everything will be in readiness for the opening of Idora Park.

Already great headway has been made, and the park Is -visited by many people dally. THE ANNUAL DINNER. NEW YORK, Feb. 2. The fifth annual dinner of the Harvard Club of Cuba was hield last evening at the Hotel Tel-grafo, says a cable to the Tribune from Havana.
