Alameda to Be Represented at Two Big 1915 Expo- sitions. (Continued From Page S3) County has had John Birmingham Jr, as it Exposition Commissioner for several years and he has already done a great deal of work for that active county. These men are now .begin ning to give their attention to the affairs of 1916 and they are In communication with our commission cov ering the question of . whether the proposed combination would be of mutual benefit. TO DISCUSS JOUfT EXHIBIT. The Board of Supervisor of Ala-meda County has taken the first step by authorizing the Alameda Countv .exposition1 tommission to issue an official call upon behalf of Alameda. County for a conference to be held in Oakland for the discussion of such $. combination. The commission has placed the matter of agreeing upon s date that would be satisfactory to the other two counties when such a gath-ering can' be had .and as soon as the sentiment of the other counties is ascertained the call will be issued. . The possibilities at this combination are very great. It , may extend to simply one of the expositions of 101S and it may extend to both, and It may even go beyond this to all promotion and development matter in . which Joint action may be deemed advisable. The Alameda County Exposition Commission has already started a move for an exhibit building for this sec. tlon of the Sttae similar to that which has. been erected in Southern California, and it may be that w will ;want the help of these counties In the 'matter. There Is also the auninrv 8tate Fair proposition, which would aiso OS oi interest, to these east bay counties, f - ' ? TO REAP BENEriTS, ' - The Alameda County Exposition Commission is anxious to ' co-operate with It neighbor and is heartily supporting both the Ban Francisco and San Diego propositions. There Is no desire to slight either exposition, but to take advantage of the greatest opportunity that has ever been offered to California and reap for the east bay section the benefits that will come from each of these tXDosltlons. Wo Ond ourselves In a position to make totalled plans for the San Diego fair before w can make detailed plan for the exposition at San Francisco because we know Just exactly what we will be allowed to "do In the southland, and, until the legislature settle the question of whether they will build a State counties building at San Tranclsco, we do not know what shape our exhibit there will be al lowed to take. .'''.' '' The policy of the commission will be to reserve It resources for ' the 1115 exposltlone.

If there were reasons for lowering the price of wheat earlier In the week there were potent influences for lowering therit today. New record mw points were again marked down. The principal bearish factor was the report of Secretary J. C. P. Merrill of the board of trade after a visit to EuffHlo, Narw York, to ascertain why the iuuki mere nave not Deen included In the visible supply that they will be included in the visible Monday. The amount to be added to the visible is variously estimated at from 4.000,000 to $.000,000 bushels and a happy medium has been adopted by the wrlter-whlch will be seen to be $,000,000 bushels. Otherwise the visible supply is expected to show a goodly increase and if expectations as to the Increase is realized there win we new ana pronounced selling bv those who own the wheat and there will aleo.be heavier selling In the way of pulling out short lines. RUSSIAN CROPS BEARISH The central statistical rnmmftf.u ef Russia cabled an estimate on the crops of that country and they were unite bearish. The snrlnr wheat cron ( tiiaruui at 0.$00,600 bushels compared with 820,- zuu.vvw ousneis a year ago: nc at 1.12$ 000 bushels compared with $5fl.9B4,000 bushels la 1011, barley at 440,000.000 bushels and oats et 7J.000.000, which compare with 411,235.000 bushels and 2,2J$,000 bushels respectively, last year. The war news received on the beard of trade caused a helt tn the ilin cable nomlng from London saying that peace negotiations between Turkey and Bulgaria were broken off. On this there were many shorts to cover. The Russian crop report and the announcement as to tne nuiraio stocks were received late and on these real heavy selling and the lpw- prices on me crop wers seen. ' HEAVY ON SHORTS. Heavy selling of ehort tines was In- auigea in again in me corn market and the consequence was further price records. Many of the point dewn state reported larger receipts of this grain with the conoinon excellent ana further Increased arrival looked for during the coming week. There were heavy declines In the cash article In all th markets of ine country ana sales si Chicago amount ed to only 70,000 bushels on eastern ship ping account. The weather could not be more favorable for the com still jn the iimi. as wen as i or narvesung and mov mg It. Those who are closest to th men who raise the oats and who are well posted on the export situation believe that the May future must sell to a still tower level. Tiiey point to the fact that oats receipts, ar likely to increase and that while the export trade may increase some, Russia will be a freer seller of this grain as the crop there Is 79,000,000 bushels, c Substantial gains were mad In the entire provision list, with the big de-M ereases m th semi-monthly manufactured stovk here the principal bullish help.

How Quickly th industrial acreage that will bs built up In conjunction with the proposed harbor improvements here will be made use of by large enterprises Is exemplified in the way Richmond's' outer harbor frontage was taken up by Industrial plants and railroads. Every advantageous site on this deyp water at 'the base of the hills that line Richmond's western limits 1 occu pied, th Standard Oil plant, Wlnehaven, the Belt Railroad wharves, the can fac tory, the whald oil works, the Los Angeles Pressed Brick Works and th Santa Fe terminal taking up ths best of this frontage. The Southern Pacific has forty acres on the hills, with a wharf franchise, and tne Belt Railroad Company controls a large portion of the. frontage. ; CHEAP 8ITE8 DRAW BIO PLANTS. Th plant that located on this front age, and they are among the biggest In the country, did so because the site were cheap, while affording transcontinental railroad and ocean shipping facilities within the sone of the greatest development "on San Francisco bay. This waterfront built Richmond to what it Is today. Now the citizens want to gain more good water shipping facilities, with railroad connection and cheap sites ad jacent that will draw more big enterprises and maXe Richmond a big city. .- ' Municipal ownership is the biggest thing In connection with the plan of developing the harbor here. City-owned shipping facilities and industrial ' and warehouse land are expected to put Richmond in a position 1 to give the greatest encourage ment ' to Investment by manufacturing and shipping companies. There is a rest less feeling now about this waterfront of Richmond,, especially since the city began the movement to get control. Private in terests know ' that with comparatively little money they can maka enough chan nel to serve for shipping, and if the city should fait to get control now. It is likely that befprs the middle of next year cor poration will have taken step that will prevent the people aver getting possession except by. litigation. , WARDED BY OAKLAND'S TROUBLE, Oakland's experience In this line, men tioned before in connection with the Richmond campaign, la the strongest les son that could be put before any com munity tliat was delaying about acquiring control of whatever waterfront might be left to lt. Thl wa a costly piece of negligence to Oakland, and It will be costly to any other community that does not take heed. Every foot of waterfront on the ast side of the bay that can be developed Is attaining a -great value, and that of Richmond Is becoming especially valuable, because of the railroad facilities and th big plants already established in this city. - ' 1 The federal engineer have pronounced the harbor ite, lying inside Point Potrero and Brooks, or Sheep Island, an Ideal one, with plenty of rock on the Island and the point for all necessary walls and with only soft meateruu to areage. WILL OCT RESULTS QUICKLY. "While' the' bonds Will be Issued gradually, so that th tax wlU not be great at any time, new hlpplng facilltle that will be of great value will be provided from lb work done during th first eighteen months. The extensive wharf provided for on the outer part of ths main channel will be usable, In " connection with the tunnel, at once. This tunnel and wharf will serve to make a landing nlace tor ocean vessels, a well as for P river steamers, and th latter will sav householder a great deal more yearly in freight on necessities than th bond tax will amount to. On local grocer has shown that with a landing for river boats the saving to average householder each year on potatoes alone will be 8. A wholesale butcher I ay th saving on meat will b thou sands, a It costs mm twic a mucu w bring a carload of Uvs stock here from a river point by rail as it wouia y iwai. : SAVING TO HOUSEHOLDERS, i Th compute control held by corpora tlons over Richmond's natural water front 1 shown by thtT fact that there u not even a place for river boats to dls- It n . eOren Thau fair cornoratlons and WUB, v . - - Industrial plants, however, have made Richmond what it Is today, and the citl-..n. h.v. nothing but kindly feelings toward them. However that does not prevent the city acquiring waterfront of Its own and developing mors unuu? and more shipping. - The statement of Colonel Thomas H. Rees, United Btates Army engineer, in charge of .the Paclflo Coast Rivera and Harbor work, to th Cltlaens Campaign Committee that the people should by all means get control of the harbor a laid h the rovernment and forestall prt- ..... int....t. has had areat weight with the voters. Colonel Rees vtrtud'jr tells the citliens that the government will help them construct the ' harbor, though hl official position prevent him going very far en this subject. That the government win follow It Usual custom and appropriate amount equal to th sum provided by th city Is understood. SHIPPING NEWS - FROM THE SOUTH LOS ANGELES HARBOR. Nov. II.
