Beginning Monday Next December 17th, this store will keep open evenings until Christmas. KT7AND TRIBUNE. Contractors Claim That Southern Pacific Planned to Carry Away Their , Warehouse. SAjP OAKLAND. Cotton Brothers, contractors, who are contesting with the Southern Pa cific Company for the possession or a atrip of land on First street, between the Webster and Harrison street bridges, have asked the protection of Sheriff .-Barnet to prevent the railroad company- from carrying, oft their equipment, and to forestall an apparent attempt on the part of the railroad to send two hundred men to the site and remove Cotton Brothers' warehouse. Acordingly, Deputy Sheriff John Rellly was sent to keep peace. Late In the afternoon, the Southern Pacific roadmaster, E. O. Corrigan, removed his forces. .Two cars of material belonging to Cotton Brothers had been loaded, and were apparently about to follow the two sent away last evening, but Ernest Cotton put a- stop to this, and his forces unloaded the equipment and returned It to the warehouse. FIOIIT TO FINISH. Ernest Cotton states that this contest Is to be a fight to the finish, and receive a telephone message from the Southern Pacific a few days ago, warning us If we did not get off the property Immediately we would be thrown off. Now, the railroad company had no right to issue such an order, .and until the case Is settled by th.e court as to who has the rights and title to the property, the railroad must keep its hands off." RESURVEY 5IADE. Samuel S. Austin, agent for the Webster Street Wharf and Dock Company, which claims title to most of the property lying between the bridges south of First street, ordered a resurvey of the premises made, and yesterday surveyors from the city engineer's office, began to relocate the stakes of the property lines. Austin states that the fight Is between Cotton Brother s and the Southern Pacific Company, and that his clients are not interested in the battle, only in so far as their own land is concerned. He states that the wharf company has held title -to three acres in the space south of First street, and that the title was part of the claims sucessfully main that their legal representative. At- tained by Dameroa and Doane some torney W. R. Davis, will attend to years ago, and that he proposed to the legalities of the case. hold it against tho Southern Pacific "It Is true," said Cotton, "we did or anyone else. BOY AND FATHER BOTH DISCHARGED Young Alfred Rowe, who has been arrested several times by the police for complicity in bold thefts, has been sent to a reform school at Lytton Springs. The charge of petit larceny against the boy was dismissed this morning by Police Judge Samuels. Q. E. Rowe, the father of the lad. who was arrested for not sending his son to school, was also discharged. Rowe claimed that his son was so wayward that he could not kee; him in school. OFFER FOR THE FORUM John Tait Would Give $100,000 for the Local Cafe on Broadway. Willie and the Two Kids Here's a fairy tale about a grouchy oldt man and his two boys; one was a Sunday boy and the other any-old-day-ln-the-week. Well, It came Christmas time and the old man gave the good boy a stocking full of candy and nuts, toys galore and in the bad boy's stocking he put two old horseshoes. Christmas morning the boys looked at their things and old stingy asked them how they liked the things Santa Claus brought, and the good little feller eald: "Oh, I got some candy and nuts and toys. Old Santa is a fine fellow." And the bad boy said, "Say, dad, old Santa Claus is a brick; why he brought me a real horse but it got away." We are very busy and I guess here Is one of the reasons I overheard two men talking about my boss and here Is what I heard: "Isn't It Wonderful what a big business Charlie Heeseman Is doing," and the man he was talking to said: "Yes, it Is and no wonder for he carrles' the best stock of things to wear I ever saw in my life. Why, that store is a wonderful place to trade in and your treatment is excellent, and, besides that, Charlie Heeseman Is uch a darned good fellow." Well, what do you think of that. I guess It's about the suds. Come and see the Sunday coats at As the end of the year approaches, there Is a growing desire on the part of San Francisco merchants to acquire business locations In this city. J. B. Knowles, who Is associated with Oeorge W. Austin, has had a very Interesting experience along these lines during the past week. "A few days ago," said Mr. Knowles, "I was called upon bw Mr. J. Talt, the proprietor of the celebrated Talt's res-I taurant of San Francisco. He was pre-I pared to invest heavily In a cafe In Oakland. I had heard that W. H. Brown, of the Forum, was not averse to selling, provided he could get his price. Mr. Tait bluntly offered Mr. Brown $100,000 for the lease and good will of the. Forum. The suddenness of the offer took Mr. Brown by surprise, and he declined to sell his interest". "Mr. Tait then made a proposition to P. Kisich, of the Saddle Rock, restaurant, and offered him $45,000 for his lease and good will. Mr. Kisich promptly declinedl-xeasoning, no doubt, that if his lease be worth so much to a stranger. It is equally as valuable to himself. I have no. doubt that if Mr. Brown will really entertain the proposition, I can secure a purchaser of his place for $125,000. "On the first of January a San Francisco merchant, one of the best known, 'wants to open a large store here, and has authorized me to state that he Is prepared to Invest a quarter of a million of dollars in Oakland. These facts indicate the tremendous value of Broadway property, and with such marvelous rise in values on the city's main street, it stands . to, reason that the same nronortion 'in values mmst i olltni.n on rtrHnr'fvnt thimncrhfQi-oo S.

Let the bands play, let the red fire burn, let the gay floats, swift autos and handsome turnouts bedeck themselves with the brightest colors and the most brilliant lights. Above it all, old Santa Claus looks down bdhignantly and with satisfaction, gratified at the unprecedented showing that Oakland can make on the eve of-this year's celebration of the great Christmas festival. . Distinctly Fur Time Our early touch of winter proved the wisdom of those who made an early selection of furs. If you have not yet chosen one for yourself or for a gift to some one else, you have an unusual opportunity this season, for a delayed shipment has just come through and we are about as well prepared as we were when the season opened. . There is a wide diversity of grades in our furs scarfs, stoles, throws, four-in-hands, shoulder capes, etc.; in genuine Siberian Mink, Isabella Fox, Ermine, Marten and also in the less rare furs, such as oppossum, fox, squirrel, chinchilla, wolf, Japanese mink, water rat, etc. There are good values in furs at $4.00, $5.00, $6.50, $7.50, and some very handsome fur pieces in real Siberian Mink up to $150. Fur Sets for Children Four times as many fur sets for children were bought by us this year as were purchased for our last holiday trade. Yet they are going so fast that for your own contentment we advise an early choice. They are prettier than ever, and while prices may be the same, there is more real value in each grade. Persian Lamb, Angora, Chinchilla, imitation Ermine, Water Mink all these furs look pretty on children. Each set consists of collarette and muff $1.00, $1.25, $1.50 and to $7.50 a set. Gentlemen's Handkerchiefs It isn't always easy to select a gift that will please a mac, especially the nervous, irritable, business-satiated man of today. He's not selfish, only finicky. He likes to be remebered, especially at Christmas time.- A half-dozen handkerchiefs will satisfy ninety-nine per cent of all the mem. Japanese silk handkerchiefs, with large or small initials, neatly hemmed 25c, 50c, 75c and $1.00. Linen handkerchiefs, initials in different styles, different widths of hem six for $1.00; 25c each : three for $1.00. ' Flain linen handkerchiefs, with hems of any desired width 15c, 20c, 25c and to 75c each. .

All desired colors and in grades at 75c, S1.C0, $1.25 and to $3.25. NO CHARGE FOR STAMPING INITIALS. Holiday Leather Goods What would a woman do today without a wrist bag? It is useless to answer it is easier to descant on its merits, especially on the merits of our display of Wrist Bags for the holidays. There are all shapes, all colors, all proper kinds of leathers, and several ways of fixing up the interiors so as to be convenient and useful; and all have handles that are neat, easy to grasp and easy to retain.

THE "ANTHONY BAGS," a desirable addition to this season's popular novelties $1.25, $1.75 and to $2.50. The Hour's Necessity The Suit Case The modern suit case has as many uses as poets have attributed to adversity. The traveler, the athlete, the lady going to a ball or party, the man off to a full . dress dinner, the bibliophile, the shopper of both sexes all rind great satisfaction in the service rendered them by a suit case. Rut more than utility is demanded In a suit rase today; it must have a good appearance, must be stylish: It must be right outside and particularly right In the Interior. There are hundreds of such suit cases in our leather department: they are priced $6.00, $6.50, $7.50 and to- $14.50. I The True Value of a Glove Order depends entirely on the store which issued it. Two glove orders, nominally costing the same, may represent very different values. A glove order or. merchandise order on the H. C. Capwell Company is the equiva-. lent of cash on any one of the thousands of right-priced articles in this big store. It is handier than a check, because we don't even require identification we are only too pleased to immediately honor our own paper. If you have a desire to make sifts to a friend, to half a dozen or to a hundred employes, what better or more satisfactory medium than one of our glove orders made out for any desired amount?1 Gentlemen's Department We've talked a good deal about the men's furnishing section lately, but each time the ad-writer passes those counters there is always so much that is new and novel that it compels him to stop for a few items. In every store will be found neckwear, suspenders, shirts, underwear, hosiery, cuff buttons, shirt studs, blanket robes, pajama suits, night shirts, etc. f ' But we claim an added distinction for each of these lines that you will find in our store distinction of exclusive novelties. It may be a new shade in a fancy shirt, a particularly bright blending of color in neckwear, an original design in a blanket robe, a particularly effective silk embroidered pair of suspenders but whatever it may be, it will be something that will show a difference, something that will be particularly gratifying to the man of pronounced srood taste. . Silk neckwear 50c, 75c. Silk embroidered suspenders (in boxes) 75c, $1.00, $1.50. Fancy (hosiery 25c, 50c. Fancy dress shirts and coat shirts $1.00, $1.50. Blanket robes $3.50, $4.50, $5.50. Pajama suits $1.00, $1.50, $2.00 and to $6.50. Silk Shawls . No Christmas will ever come when a silk shawl will not be an appropriate gift. They don't alter much in general style, but in quality and pattern they keep p-4ce with up-to-date progress. To be had in black or cream ; fringed all around, good silk shoulder-covers, giving plenty of warmth and comfort $1.25, $1.50, $1.75 and to $4.75. ICE WOOL FASCINATORS AH colors, wide variety of stitches, plenty of grades from 65c, $1.25 and to $3.50. Fancy Aprons For a present that any woman will appreciate, give a fancy Swiss apron. These dainty accessories to the afternoon toilette arc here in many novel designs effective arrangements of lace inserting, ribbon beading, Van Dyke points, groups of fine tucks round, square, of various sizes priced 25c, 35c, 50c and to $2.25. And The Fan ' Fans may not be .much used in this equable climate, but it is fashionable to display one. The Empire Fan is the fad of this season ; they are made of fine gauze, effectively decorated with spangles and hand-decorated sticks; in either French bone or wood 35c, 50c, 65c, 75c and to $6.50.

Novelty Net Waists Some Very handsome net waists have just been put on display and they came just in time to reinforce a line that was depleted because of its popularity. However, we are well fixed in net and all-over waists now, and with their silk lining, short sleeves and graceful draping effects, they are strong favorites for evening wear $4.95, $5.95, $6.50 and to $16.50. 7 0 ALTERATION SALE vfV entire stock of fine Millinery at less than cost during alterations.
