the arrival of recruits from the Coast
sent the companies back tn full
strength, the presence of the band, for
which separate uuarters were not pro-

called tho sale a family iiITalr, ho
Stilted that the sale had been ,'pindo
from Sprcckols to Irwin nnd thai at
that tlmo bo thought Irwin could get
things much cheaper from Sptcckcki
than uti outsider could,
According to Abies the matter of es
tablishing a market value Is n vcrv
bard one. The 'price obtained nt pub

thnt enter into such a sale. Tho mero
fact of one or even two blocks of hnd

that land facing on this stieet is
worth more than that In a similar po
sition on other sticcts.
Abies split his valuation of tho
Cummins block Into two sections. The
price for tho land ho gavo Is $ 1 1 7,f, 1 .
