THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS PLUNDER TAKEN BY MAN IN . FRAUDULENT MANNER IN In the guise of a sanitary inspector, there is an unknown man going about town visiting residences under the pretense of examining the plumbing and sanitary, conditions, while his real object is to rob the premises of anything that might come under his notice of any value. The police have been informed of his presence and operations, bat so far have been unable to apprehend him. It Is learned,., upon good authority, that the bogus sanitary inspector has taken article? of valtfe from at least .fifteen residences, the majority being im jjKorth Oakland, althought he has visited East Oakland and the Lakeside district. It is said that the plunder is valued at many thousands of dllarsi, the most of it being in diamonds and Jewelry; although he has also secured a considerable amount of money carelessly left wi(,hin his easy reach. The operator's method is to select a residence of aristocratic appearance and present himself at the front door and, showing a badge, announce that SUNDAY SCHOOL CHILDREN PICNIC.

Alxj&h-Cljui iJKUoCo.Akrqa.O.'V ST. VITUS' DANCE. The most modern market building in the United States will be formally opened this evening on the block bounded on the north by Twelfth, on the south by Eleventh, on the east by Harrison and on the west by Webster streets in this city. The structure has been erected at a cost of $90,000 by Mrs. F. M. Smith. This expenditure, however, does not include the value of the ground. The demand for a structure of this kind in Oakland has existed for a number of years, but the granting of it was prevented by the tenacity with which the owners clung to a worm-eaten old building, which, for years stood on the northeast corner of Eleventh and Washington streets, in which many of the commission firms of this city had been established, and which, they felt, they could not leave save in a body without injuring their Individual business. END OF OLD MARKET. The old structure has, however, been, razed to the ground, thus necessitating the selection of another general resert in which people in the produce and commission, line could -concentrate their business and, at the same time, satisfy their patrons in all parts of the city. As a consequence, practically every down-town commission merchant and produce dealer of this city is now located in this new Produce Exchange. There are forty-six stores in the' building, and, of these, forty are (Occupied. The appearance of these places of business is modern in every respect, and is in keeping with the systematic method devised for the conduct of business and the modern appliances which are everywhere visibe. NEW STRUCTURE. The building is one slbry in height, is built of wood, and contains; about one million feet of lumber. Stores front on the four streets which bound the building. Through the middle of the Exchange, from east to west, runs a court forty feet in width. Upon this court, the stores which front on Eleventh and Twelfth streets have a view through large plate-glass windows and openings. By means of the court, goods may be left at the various stores or may there be put upon wagons for home delivery. By means of this court, too, customers in carriages may be served without leaving thei- vehicles, a convenience heretofore unknown and which will be especially appreciated in tempestuous weather. COLD STORAGE. The sidewalks are new and level and extend from Jot line to the curb. Over these walks, is a broad, overhanging porch which extends around the. building protecting goods in display, from the' heat of summer and the" rain of winter. Each store is, at all times, open to fresh air by means of tall, iron gates which are made strong and ornate. This is qf incalculable advantage to stores tft which products of a perishable character, such as vegeta bles, meat, and fruit are sold. By way of supplementing this means of preserving stocks of goods, a cold-storage plant has been established in a section of the building, the benefits of which are enjoyed by all the lessees. Pipes run from the plant to each of the stores which keep the several refrigerators at the required cold temperature without the direct handling or the annoyance of the shifting of ice. There are also facilities for the manufacture of ice, the plant having p. capacity of 67 tons daily. FIRE-PROOF. The structure has been made practically fire-proof by the use of what Is known as cold water paint and the covering of the roof with what-, is styled elaterlte, a fire-proof material which is manufactured in this eity and which will be able to negative the effects of any burning brand which may fall upon it from a surrounding conflagration. The building is designed by architect A. W. Smith. In it, is a suggestion of mission architecture, though thia has been modernized in a manner which gives it, on the whole a very attractive appearance. NOT A FREE MARKET. In many large cities there are what Is called "free markets" and "public markets". In time, these places become objectionable by reason of the suggestion of hidden refuse or by apparent lack of cleanliness, which frequently deters people with sensitive faculties from even frequenting much lei patronizing them. This exchange, however, is not a free market, nor is it in the sense which obtains in the East, a public market. It is simply a collection of business houses doing business in various lines comprehending everything required in the kitchen-and the dining room of the home. There is nothing in the line of sustenance which cannot be obtained here and front merchants who have established reputations for reliability, enterprise &itd public spirit. 1 FORMAL OPENING. The formal opening will take place tonight when the entire structure wilr be all agiow with lights. Between fif teen hundred and two thousand elee trie bulbs will be strung in farious places ana, in some instances, will be wrought Into beautiful designs as a means of advertising some particular merchant and some special line of goods. There will be a band of mus.:e phich will play all kinds of attractive airs throughout the evening, with the exception of about -thirty minutes when the musicians will take part in a pro cession which is to jbe held In honor of the auspicious undertaking. The opening tonight will be the con cluding feature of the reception which took place this afterhoon.at the eme j -eaters in that neighborhood Inas- place, during which time the exchange was visited fty uiousanas oi ywyic who viewed the place with a great deal of interest and enjoyed the music the band rendered for them. Even this structure, large and perfect as it is, has been fotfnd Inadequate to accommodate merchant who desire such a place in -which to transact their business. Accordingly, a smilar structure is to be erected orl the southeast corner of Twelfth and Harrison streets where a number of other enterprising business people will be accommodated. The merchants -who have secured quarters in the exchange will he on hand tonight with all their clerks and will be pleased to meet their old frlehds and felicitate with them over the establishment of such a business home which is both a credit to the projectors and to the City of Oakland. 3f WHERE BERRIES AND FRUIT COME FROM. Consumers who are always so anxious to buy the famous Longsworth, Malinda, and Cheney strawberries would be pleased to know tha.t the reliable -Well-known firm of Fossing & Gallagher at No. 310-312 Eleventh street, in the Produce Exchange, are headquarters for these berries. Mr. C. W. Gallagher also has; a ranch where the best of apples are grown and the fall and winter season finds many retail grocers seeking these goods. Mr. J. C. Fosslng, the other member of the firm of Fossing & Gallagher, is a well-known merchant and has given the public satisfaction during his 11 years of business on Eleventh street. The entire output of several large asparagus gardens near Alvlso is handled by this company. Last season for the first time the firm handled oranges and lemons, using many carloads and are planning a more extensive campaign this year. All kinds of garden and farm produce are handled by them but they are especially well-known for the berry and apple trade. THE OLDEST COMMISSION HOUSE IN ALAMEDA COUNTY. much as there are no other restaurants in the immediate vicinity. AN IDEAL MARKET. Every produce exchange has its first-class meat market, and the Oakland Mar-" ket is not to be outdone by any other city. Messrs. H. W. Garner and -Hugh McDonald, of the famous Occidental Market, will watch the people's interests in the meat line. Mr. Garner is a pioneer of this city and prominently Identified with the Woodmen and K. of P. lodges, while Mr. McDonald, although not so long a resident, has won the esteem of all who have known him. 'First quality goods only," is the pol icy of the Occidental Market, and traders at the Exchange will find their fresh and salt meats positively the best. By a system of electric fans and ventilation, this handsome market is a oool and inviting place. The stores at Eleventh and Clay and Ninth and Webster have been consolidat ed with this one at the Exchange, the new number being 333 and 335 Twelfth street. A WELL-KNOWN FIRM. The Arm of W. A. Rouse & Co., which means W. A. Rouse and Walter G. Manuel Is too well known as responsible businees men, to need any encontuni of praise. A record of 25 years active business in this city is a .guarantee of qualification for the same. A retail establishment will be carried on at 829 Twelfth etreet in conjunction with their wholesale department, which is located at 318 Eleventh street. 4These gentlemen are prominently identified with many of the best social and fraternal organizations in the city, and take a great interest in civic affairs. AT OPPOSITE CORNERS. E. E. Williams & Co. and the Hunt, Hatch Company are occupying opposite corners in the Exchange. The Williams Company, which makes a specialty of potatoes, onions and general garden produce, are located at Eleventh and Franklin streets, while the Hunt, Hatch Company, the largest orange shippers in Alameda county, occupy the Eleventh and Harrison streets corner. In conjunction with this place, where a general merchandise business Is carried on. the Hunt, Hatch Company run a packing house at the Adams Wharf. The Oakland Fruit and "Produce Company are now settled in their new home in the Produce Exchange building, 314 and 316 Eleventh street. More than a quarter of a century ago Messrs. D. H. Porter, A. W. Porter and Mr. Wing at that time in the employ of Mr. C. R. Lewis on Broadway, formed a co-partnership, under the firm name of Porter Brothers and Wing and opened the first wholesale and retail fruit, produce, poultry and game business on the north side of Eleventh street between Broadway and Washington streets. A few years later Mr. Wing retired from the firm and cast his lot in the East. The business was then carried on under the firm name of Porter Brothers Company until about 1880 when they were succeeded by Messrs. Prince, Ha vens and Metcalf, who -were in turn in 1S81 succeeded by the Oakland Fruit and Produce Company, who have continued the business ever since at 460-f62 Eleventh street until April 10 ui last when they were compelled to vacate the premises occupied bv them for so long a time on account of improvement of the property by the owners. The Bacon Land and Loan Company. The Oakland Fruit .aid Produce Company have during all these years enjoyed a very large trade in Oakland Alameda and Berkeley, as well as a shipping business all through the State. For several years they have been running daily boats on the Sacramento River during the fruit season, bringing large quantities of , fruits of all kinds to this market and landing at City Wharf, foot of "Webster street. They now bring ail their bananas direct from New Orleans in car lots. The Oakland Fruit and Produce Company is known by every man, woman and child in Alameda County as one of the most reliable houses doing business in the county. The Porter Brothers referred' to in this article are not the Porter Brothers who are now having business difficulties in San Francisco, Chicago and elsewhere. THE NUDDLE BOOTH. The D. W. Hatch Company, which has the nuddle booth in the Exchange, know beans when they see them, because they are dealing exclusively in garden produce, and handled many car loads of Oregon potatoes last year. A broad policy is outlined for this year's business, and the public can rest assured that they will get the best. KNEW THE PEOPLE'S NEED. Mr. Chales Heatly has apprehended the need of those attending these produce exchanges and has taken time by the forelock. A more cleanly and artistic tea and coffee booth can not be found' in the State. Everything fresh and invitfrifr anrt many heavily laden shelves of handsome enmaware. Mr. Heatly will operate this market here on the same broad plans upon which he has made the name Keystone Tea Company synonomous for good teas and coffees throughout Alameda county.

A TWENTIETH CENTURY CREAMERY The Royal Creamery, under the skillful management of the well-known real estate broker, George B. M. Gray, is an inviting place and thoroughly modern In every particular: The progress made bv this creamery since Its establishment oh San Pablo avenue is gratifying and Mr. Gray has kept pace with the demands of the jublic. The Royal Creamery is a most attractive place and Is fitted up with Mission furniture. A refrigerator counter, which is Mr. Gray's special fad, holds a large part of the butter, cream and ices that are kept for immediate sale. This counter -has a double glass front and sides and is kept at a refrigerating temperature by means of an extension from his ice machine. His ice-cream plant has . a capacity of 1400 quarts a day.

Clecak, of Gas Kitchen fame, has opened a tidy and well-appointed restaurant in the Produce Exchange, opposite the Dewey Theater on the Twelfth-street side. Early morning traders about the Exchange block must have something to eat after their long rides into town from the ranches and farms up country, and that the army of clerks in the block must all have meals at noon, Peterj N. Clecak will carter largely to the commercial trade and for that reason has fitted up his place with a counter for meals, in addition to the tables. Electric lights have been put in and every convenience for the .accommodation of a busy trade.

When a laxativq is needed the remedy which is given to them to cleanse and sweeten and strengthen the internal organs on which it acts, should be such as physicians would sanction because its component parts are known to be wholesome and the remedy itself free from every objectionable quality. The one remedy which physicians and parents, well-informed, approve and recommend and which the little ones enjoy, because of its pleasant flavor, its gentle action and its beneficial effects, is Syrup of Figs and for the same reason it is the only laxative which should be used by fathers and mothers. Syrup of Figs is the only remedy which acts gently, pleasantly and naturally without griping, irritating, or nauseating and wbwh cleanses jjthe system effectually, withput producing that constipated habit which results from the use of the old-time cathartics and modern imitations, and against which the children should be so carefully guarded. If you would have them grow to manhood and womanhood, strong, healthy and happy, do not give them medicines, when medicines are not needed, and. when nature needs assistance in the way of a laxative, give them only the simple, pleasant and gentle Syrup of Figs.
