Would Buy Land in Oakland Today At a time when our population 1st greater, our people as a whole earning more, and spending more, and ought to be saving more than was ever previously possible, the present low values tf Real Estate In Oakland are unwarranted, ' Hetty Green said, , "I always buy Real Estate when others want to sell; I always sell, when others want to buy.'.-. History has taught that periods of business depression occur about every so often. During such 1 ; times Real Estate values sink to lower levels and . It becomes he ,least desired of Investments.' Then the pendulum' swings; an era of business expansion, of home buying and building, and development of new Industries . begins. Real Estate becomes the most sought for of all investments. , And the demand forces values higher-than ever before. . : h Real Estate wisely bought during former periods Of depressed value Is he source, from w,hlea. many of Oakland's largest fortunes have grown.

Frtd i I V , ,B IK The appointment of a supervisor to succeed Fred W. Foss,. elected county treasurer, is expected to carry with It the control of tho Board of Supervisors. ' p. J. urphy of Liver-more Is now chairman of the board. During the recent- gubernatorial campaign .Governor '"Stephens' visited n'Paign UOVemof St I "vermore and In the course of his speech was interrupted by questions reiawng to the Theodore Gier affair. A heated argument ennued resulting In a. clasft 'Between Supervisor Mur- pny and Charles H. Stern, recently ( appointed commissioner of banks. As a result. Murphy's friends expect na.ne new appointee will be pledged to vote against the present chairman. 1 The lineup will probably consist-of Hamilton, Mulllns and the new member. " Whether Murphy will make any attempt to retain the chairmanship is not known. Murphy maintains a strong hold on the up-country district He comes up for election two years hence. There have been many shifts in the control of the Board of Supervisors and until final action is j taken it is unsafe to hazard a guess as to the result. ' ' Rumor is current to the effect that ! County Treasurer-elect Foss' will ap-. point as chief deputy a leading mem ber of the present staff in the county assessor's office. . .' Should Judge .'Waste be appointed to the Appellate bench a 1 Hvely'seramble- wiH-ensue for Judge ; Waste s place on the. local bench. A ; number of the governor's friends express the opinion haf the appoint ment snouia.oe maae soieiy on merit, ignoring political considerations and thus avoiding factional strife. A spirited contest for the vacant plce, they point out, would result In another hot -flint two years hence when the terror of Judges Brown and Harris expire, and the new appointee comes up for, re-election. Speculation' concerning . the appointment of a successor2" tovl. H. Clay, city auditor and assessor, Continues at the city halL In the opinion of City Clerk Cummins it is impossible to appoint a successor to Clay until his resignation Is actually in the hands of the council. It is believed that an executive session will be held the latter part of the week when an agreement will be reached. It appears to be problematical wheth er Mayor Davie will attend uc& a conference.

Judge Jesse Dunn,, in an address teeming, with appreciation tor tne English people ana oi satistacuon in the glorious enterprises which marked their way through tl.e war, was constantly 'applauded. The parade in the aiternoon was followed by crowds that banked the sidewalks through the line of march in spite of the rain. The mass meeting In the evening, which was attended by a large audience, had an interesting program, another ad dress which brought forth applause being that of Lieutenant J. S. Dagger of the British army. Judge Dunn said In part: "Not since the signlne of the Declaration ' of Independence - has there been a greater achievement than our achievement over the Hun, who tried .to crush us. We may thank the British navy that' the German flag Is not flying In New York tonight instead of In Berlin. For hearly- f our years the brave soldiers of Britain have fought and died on the battle fronts that liberty micrht live in the world. In the cold and mud. ' with the ground soaked with theli-blood Ihese brave ment fought and were glad to die to save the world from a military tyrant. Through awful showers of shot and shell and machine gun bul lets they fought the good fight and keot the Hun back until we could go over and' help clean him out. Proud we should be tonight to do honor to the sons of a nation which has done so much tor the world. "READY TO SERVE." "When the Hun trod on the lion's tall and the lion roared, the men of Great Britain came forward and said: 'We are for God, king and country, and -are ready to serve.' Six million; five hundred thousand of them volunteered to die If neces sary in the Interest of humanity and right They, we say are cousins to the British,, but this war has made us brothers." s Charles H. Victor ,'was introduced as the next 'speaker, and said in part: "This occasion" ought" to inspire every American citizen with . a greater love for that great nation which far three years kept us from destruction. A splendid work jias been done and many splendid thlngx have come out of this war. We are today re-writing American history. "America and England may have their little family quarrels, but when one is menaced the Other comes to its aid and tights for it like a brother.
