This announcement comes from a WMterh Pacific Railroad official who Initiated thl freight terminal plan some year ago and who Is now carrying It out. When the Western Paclflo bull.t Into Oakland some years ago It was recognized that a freight terminal miwt be secured as near the center of the city as possible, and these were purchased for work of aiding. .. Temporary nrnnirements Wete made. A small freight terminal was established at Third and Alice streets to meet ' the necessities of the occasion. Larger freight yards were located next to the roundhouse of the road. This latter location waa of little use, save for the storage of cars, because a multitude of tracks of the Southern Pacific Company had to 3-story brick factory , 1 1-story concrete garage.,... 1 1-Htory concrete produce market 1 Concrete swimming pool an. nam nouse . . . .- Gasuline. stations 1-stor.' garages 1-story shed Kleetrio signs Additions Alterations and. repairs ..

It will be "necessary to build only a few hundred sfeet of. track from where the main line of the road turns off of Third street. Just beyond Market. This will run west on Third street until the land that was purchased for a freight terminal la reached. The plans for the Improvement of the property Itself have already been made. There will be a complete system of freight sheds and freight offices, with tracks to accommodate all classes and routings of freight. This means the location of a great warehouse center at this point. All of the property from Market to Center streets and eouth of Seventh becomes warehouse property. It Is in this district that V. O.

A 1 E OWNERSK IP East Bay Community Affords Best Chances, Says Capt. E. fc. Vander Naillen. . "Nowhere else on the Pacific Coast are conditions so favorable to home ownership as In Oakland and tne ea8t bay con-, munlty'-is the opinion of Captain E. E., Vander Natlton. leader In civic affairs Jif the Tehiescal district of North Oakland, j "There is probably no other city In the' United" States of the slae nd population-of the east bay community where the , wage earner and the person of small salary can acquire and live In his own home with the same financial facility as here. "For from $2000 to $3000 one may own an attractive bungalow home within easy traveling distance of the business centers and the shops and factories, a home with all the' modern conveniences and with a bit of ground about it, ft home-which In any other Western city and equally situated would cost twice as much. "Recent ruling mf the Insurance men has resulted In the reduction of insurance rates by 25 per cent in the residence districts, a fact which adds to the attractiveness of home ownership. "The present is a particularly, timely period for the purchase or the construction 0t a home, for tbe Influx of Industries with their armies of workers will soon force such a demand for medium-priced.homes that It Is evident that such property can never again be purchased so cheaply as now."
