' Following her arrival thSs morning Mrs. Kenty told of being .hreatened with violence by Adolph Goldman a month ago at Rawhide, .'ev., where she has been living. Mrs. Kenty said: "I have not seen my father for about a year prior to his death. A year ago he left Rawhide, vhere my , husband and I were livjig, tstensibly to escape from Goldman, Goldman, however, came to Rawhide after that time expecting to find my father still there. Seeing him on the stieet one day I feared for my own safety and sought the protection of the marshal's office of Rawhide. tf was accompanied by a deputy margSal along the main street o' Rawhide Ine day in February when we came face to face vwjh Goldman, ire demanded to know ftmere my lather was, but I refused absolutely to give him any' information.

It ls hero republished by request as a vital contribution to Mio Hotel Oakland smscrlptlon campaign. THE LESSON OF INEVRXED INCREMENT. A gentleman who owns sane very valuable property In Oakland "ttliiih he purchased nany years ago for less than the annual rental he receives fnm it, today declined to subscribe for stock in the new Hot-I Oakland on tho ground that "nobody in Oakland ever helpe) him." - He Is mistaken. Everybodj In Oakland has helped hint. He ls belnqr helped by every dothr spent for public and private improvements In thiH city. EveV new building erected, every new store opened, every new liflugtry established contributes to incre se the value of his provrty. Every family added to the population becomes n parVof his Investment and helps him to nmnss wealth. . Hy the lransmutinjc process of business a part of the money expended on the new hotel becomes his private property. j . Did this gontjenian ever stuly tho meaning of unearned increment? Ninety per cent o til his wealth ls unearned in-crement. Ho Invested a small stm In his real estate holding and U.o people of Oakland incrtased the value of the Investment ten fold. ' What the peopfe contributed to increase Ids1 original Investment Is .unearned Increment. - lite did little or nothing to hrreasc the value of his prop- erty. Tlie people of Oakland dM that work for him. A population and business increased he erected buildings on his property because, lennnts were- rady to lease them at a hlrh rental. Ho did nothing to brhR people here, but has bpfii enriched because people did con here in Increasing numbers. , The community at large represes all but a small fraction or the value of his property. 1 So he is enlirely wrong in suing nobodv In Oakland ever y helped him. Ho ls equally wroig in assuming that the new hotel will not help him. It willhelp him. It will help every real estate owner in the city, bfause it will contribute mu-teriaily to an advance In proper values. It will bring people and business here, eucourajo investment and stimulate other Improvements. j . . The gentleman we allude to. Ind nil nt him nr lt,,nil as he Is, ought to subscribe partial return for Oio unearned the bulk of ins fortune.
