OAKLAND TRIBUNE JANUARY 9 1906 PLAN MAGNIFICENT HOTEL FOR ALAMEDA CITY p P TUESDAY EVENING Prominent Citizens Propose to Have Erected a Structure Costing $350,000. ALAMEDA, Jan. 9. Backed by the active efforts of the Alameda Advancement Association, the prominent citizens of Alameda are vigorously prosecuting the large project of establishing a magnificent hotel tn this city, the building In fact to cost. It Is estimated. J.U0.000. The plan was enthusiastically discussed last nlRht at the meeting ofthe Alameda Advancement Association, Inan-agerflartog explaining In full the plan outlined. He assured the directors by persist ant effort he could no doubt raise subscriptions for stock In this city In the enterprise, as much as lion.ooo. The hotel, he said, would attract attention to Alameda, thrniinhout the entire country. ' SURE OF CO-OPERATION. Director V. E. Pettes said that if ManiiRcr Hurtog was successful In securing even 175. 0H0 In Alameda, toward the prolect. he Wt assured that there would be no difficulty Mn raising the balance of the funds required outside. Manager Murtog thought that the Southern Pacific Company or some other railroad would be willing to take up the project and advertise the hotel throughout the country, and the directors concurred in this view. SITE KEPT SECRET. At present, the proposed site of the hotel is not made public, as Manager llartug has several locations In view, and e. number of owners are at present in Eastern States, so that action cannot be secured until later. MAKES SUGGESTION. Manager Hartog made the suggestion that the City Trustees, should they grant a franchise to either of the two applicants for a street road and ferry system, should stipulate that the company, In erecting Its overhead electric system must provide electric lights on the poles for lighting the thoroughfares on which the roads operate without expense to the city. He also suggested that such company be asked to build a road for vehicles alongside of Its tracks on the proposed mole, to facilitate the entry In to Alameda of autos and other conveyances. PLAN NOT FAVORED. The directors, however, did' not favor this as it was affirmed that autos and wagons proved a nuisance on ferry boats and that they might better enter the city by the Creek route. OTHER MATTERS. The directors thought that Instead of agitating the building of a driveway for carriages and autos alongside of the mole, that all efforts should be bent In Improving the Webster street railway. The subject of "Arbor day" In this city, when more than 600 trees are to be planted, received some attention. Mr, Hartog stated that with Dr. Stafford, he had been engaged In making a chart of the streets to indicate which thoroughfares were mostly in need of trees. His Idea Is to plant trees orrCentral avenue west of Webster street, toward the west end, where very few trees are placed. also on Park street toward the tidal canal. In order to beautify the entrance to Alameda. MARRIAGE PROVES I SURPRISE MISS FENITA WHITE BECOMES THE BRIDE OF RALPH G. BARTLETT.

I doctored with it four ' months, also tried everything I could think of, but I would only have temporary relief. A competent physician of Kann&s City shook his head and aid, "It looks bad." Then a friend 4ld me of Cuticura. and as I had tried ao much, I thought I might as well trv , that too, and 1 bought a setjof Cuticura Soap, Ointment, and Resolvent. Just three days and nighta after I had taken the first dose, the inflammation had all gone from the sore; and when I had taken three bottles and a half of Resolvent, my hand was all well. "It gives me pleasure to tell you of thta, and if any one wiihea ta writ to me personally, I shall be glad to answer. I am never tired of shaking well of the Cuticura Remedies, (signed) Mrs. Wm. rockel, 11834 State St., Chicago, 111., May 26, 1905." STILL ANOTHER CURE Face Covered with Pimples and Sores.

Jerome and Charle3 Bat-tcll Looml.s will give a liumorora re cital at Hamilton Auditorium Friday evening, January 26. The appearance of these two celebrated men on the same program Is attracting: crowded houses wherever they appear. Jerome K. Jerome, the English hu morlst, whose "Three Men In a Boat" has been translated Into every language, attained his success only through a series of discouragements, which would have crushed a less resolute man. He could not git any one to look at his manuscript, and only the most Indomitable faJUh an3 perseverance could have sustained him. Charles Battell Loo Is Is known by his books, and his humorous contributions to The. Century, Atlantic Monthly, The Outlook, The Saturday EvenlngPost, The New York Sun, and other newspapers and periodicals have made his work a household remedy for mental depression and all , such kindred ailments.

This has been received -from Senator Perkins, and according to United States government standards, is, in varietv and quality much superior to- the, lawn grasses ordinarily in use. The- quantity in hand at the Board of Trade rooms is limited In amount, and those desiring to sample It will do well to call early. Large ripe and lucioua blackberries on the vine in January is something ut.known in the East, and rather unusuu.1 In California, -yet this is what D. I l-yon of 2210 Andover street brought in to the Board of Trade rooms yesterday. The large vine hangs full .of large and fully developed and ripe berries, and Mr. Lyon says that from two plants in hl dooryard he has picked since June. 15'J pounds of fine berries, more than enough to supply his table since that time, and that he is still gathering all he requires for the use o his household,' HERMIT GIVES UP HUT TO TAKE BRIDE SEARCH i MADE FOR BODIES CHICAGO.

At least fourteen persons are believed to have perished in a landslide which carried several tenement houses 4own Into a clay pit here last night. Up to 9 o'clock this morning none of the bodies had been recovered. A large force of men was kept ln the search for bodies. Undermined by the shifting clay that had been softened by yesterday's snowfall, the several homes, with their three score of sleeping occupants, toppled over the brink of the pit and tumbled to pieces. The houses, which were of wood, were set on fire from overturned stoves and the debris was soon a mass of flames. Some fifty or more tenants escaped with more or less serious injuries, while a number, variously estimated at from fifteen to eighteen, are believed to have been killed outright or burned to death. At 11 o'clock today it was estimated that twenty or more persons were dSctd as a result of the falling away of th ground and the fire that followed. The names of those supposed to have been Rilled follow: Joseph Albert. ' , Rev. Mr. Alden, Jewish rabbi. Mrs. Bayler. Abraham Bias. , John Bonnett. Mr. and Mrs. William Cohen and their five children. .. Thomas Hughes. Bartlett McGovern. ... Mr. and Mrs. Mannlon.- Harry Nelson, a clothing merchant, and his son Benjamin. Mrs. Silverman and child. A large force of men worked desperately today to uncover the ruins of the houses carried "down.

SKATING From present 'indications It would st-em that devotees of roller skating, the latest popular sport, will not want for commodious quarters in which to enjoy themselves, i.as there will be three large pavilions devoted exclusively to skating. The Piedmont pa-villlon will be opened on the 20th. Other local capitalists have In consideration the construction of an immense pavilion containing ten thousand feei of floor space and last but not least Messrs. Johnson & -Ferris of Los Angeles, through a local real estate dealer, have secured a three year lease on a large lot large enough to permit the construction of a building two hundred feet long.

The secretions from the kidneys were highly colored, were irregular, "and the pain in the back nearly killed . him.

The reprimand is not what is known t't the navy as a "public reprimand," the nature of which naturally requires th tt it shall be administered in a public manner. , . In view of the peculiar circumstances of sthe case. Assistant Secretary Newberry, who is acting as Secretary, has decided that the letter shall not be rendu public by the Navy Department, and thnt its publication shall be left to the d:3-cretion of the recipient. The reprimand is somewhat mild in tone, and the letter is not altogether uncomplimentary to Commander Young.. It is therefore not unlikely that Commander Young will himself consent to its publication. - BRYON MAKES SPEECH. MANILA, Jan. 9. W. J.
