EVENTS IN THE COUNTIES BORDERING ON THE BAY OF SAN FRANCISCO
KEY ROUTE BASIN
WORK UNDER WAY
City Engineer Completes Sur*
veys for Rock WaiPto Be
Constructed at Once
OAKLAND, ' Dec. 30. — Construction
of the rock retaining wall in the Key
Route basin, where the city will cre
ate-a great inner harbor fronting on
ICO acres of reclaimed land, will be
commenced next week by the San
Francisco quarries company. The city
engineer has defined the lines which
the wall will follow, extending 2.000"
feet along the north side of the South
ern Pacific mole, and continuing" 5,000
feet across the basin to the Key Route
ir.ole. The city will develop the bash:
proper, and the F. M. Smith interests
tn-ill spend about $500,000 dredging and
filling in land back of the low tide
line, and landward .of the city's hold
ings, t ' •
The Key Route basin project is the
greatest* of its kind !n the west, and
trill bring to this city at the minimum
cost a great Inner harbor, with deep
water, ample wharves, adequate- road
ways and complete railroad connec
tions. Nowhere on the coast will rail
and ship meet so advantageouely. The
city will own the wharves, and regu
late the switching facilities; will main
tain the harbor, and lease to manufac
turers sites for plants at the edge of
the harbor. The 400 acres of land
\u25a0which will.be created by the fruition
of the propect will afford for
warehouses and factories innumerable.
As a property unimproved, the latid
will be worth $6,000,000.

with the city hall work to be started
!fhortly. have resulted in booming realty
properties in the main business dis
trict and along the water front.
The building committee of the Oak
land Hotel company has awarded bids
for the installation of lights for the
vaulted sidewalks to John McGuigan
& Co.. for $2,740. Work will start

In discussing the • realty, situation
Fred E. Reed, subdivision manager of
the Laymance real estate company,
Kaid :
"The strides Rock Ridge has taken
during the yc-ar have been so great
that even we who have had the plan
ning of the property and the sale of
it in charge have been surprised. A"
year ago Rock Ridge was practically
unknown, while tpday it has taken its
placg i° the" city's life' as a : permanent
factor. — a highly improved and well
restricted suburb. \u25a0 ,• ' • - * .
"At' present there are several -homes
l»eing built-in Rock -Ridge which are
far above the .requirements:.. C. •B.
Well* te-bufoling.a' $40,000 home. Mrs.
Louise Ens Jen is, erecting one .which
will ooßt Sl2,nrtfl. while others under
construrtlon vary from $5,000 to
$10,000. Ana this is only the beginning.
The spring will see a veritable exodus
to Rock Ridge."

The realty dealers of Oakland see a
bright future. George W. Austin said:
"Oakland has every reason to con
gratulate herself upon the conditions
existing at the opening of another
year of. business. The' realty market
has displayed a steadily increasing
strength through the, year of 1910 un
til In the last few months an activity
was displayed that no one could find
fault with. The month of December,
notwithstanding the holidays, produced
good business, and there was an
amount of negotiation and inquiry
from outside points that promises well
for '1911.". There is positively no com
parison to be made between the year
closing and 1909. and I think the new
year will surprise the many who have
not been in touch with conditions.
"The amount of building that is
going on in Qakland is one of the
features which\. would astound those
whose business does not keep them in
touch. The large amount of loans
being made through the real estate of
fices because the banks can not ac
commodate the large demand is a sure
indication of the way Oakland is grow
ing. -My business in this department
has grown to an average of $L,000,000
a .year, and there is plenty of money
to be had on improved property."
In Alameda
ALAMEDA. Dec. 30. — The jeal estate
market, while not particularly active
in this city owing to the holidays, has
been more than holding Its' own, , and
with the changing of the steam rail
road to electric^ in the near future
much is hoped for in Alameda real
estate.
McNanghton . & Cuthbertson report
many . inquiries for December and a
number of important sales, among them
being the sale of the northwest corner
of Central avenue and Chestnut street,
108 by 117:6. for $12,500. to C. T. Mc-
Carthy, who will erect three handsome
homes. Another Important sale is that
of a two story house at 954 Park street
to Doctor Pierce for $5,000.' Others
are the sale of a new five room bunga
low at 1524 Pearl street; eight room
cottage at" the southwest corner of
Mound and Adams 'streets to H. C.
Henry for $3,000; five room cottageat
the southwest corner of Pearl street
and Encinal avenue for $2,250; five
room cottage at 1336 Broadway to W.
B. Henry .for $2,800.

REALTY SYNDICATE
GOES A-DREDGING
V . . ' ; .. i'.y,.;
Big Corporation to Bid for Mu
nicipal Contract for Har«
bor Channel .
OAKLAND, Dec. 30.— City officials
have been informed ' thai . the Realty
Syndicate, which company is < now
building a dredger for use in the Key
Route basin, will be one of the bidders
for the municipal contract for dredging
a deep water channel and filling land
back of the new bulkhead line In the
western harbor. As , the . contract will
be the / largest of- the kind ever let by
the city, the estimated cost being $350,
000, the syndicate's proposed bid is ex
pected to ; be greatly in favor of the
municipality.
The number of <^>mpanies which can
take the contract "Is small. Reports
have -been made to the city .officials
that the large contractors will work
In collusion 'to keep .up the price of the
contract. . The fact that the Realty-
Syndicate purposes to bid. is consid
ered an advantage to the city, as the
company is as much interested. In-low
cost for the work as the city is. ;- /> :<-*
The bids will be opened January 11,
when the Realty v Syndicate dredgei
will be completed. The dredger is be
ing constructed for "use by " the . San
Francisco, Oakland and San Jose rail
way, but the enterprise of that rail
road in the Key Route basin is bo
closely allied with the municipal proj
ect that one dredger could : do the
whole work.
For this reason the Realty Syndicate
bid. will be favorably . received by the
city, although: the large contractors
deny the alleged collusion. /

; .Clerk; Curtain
OAKLAND, Dec. 30. — A hitch in the
matrimonial plans of Edward A. Runge
and Ruth V. Lover 1 was occasioned last
night by the. refusal of the. young man's
mother ito! give her consent to:his mar
riage unless he' gave up his name,
which ,is that _of/ her first husband,
whom she divorced ;17 years ago. In
as much - as'vßunge" is only * 19' years
of -age, he could not get a license: un
less his mother- consented.
He arrived^at the: marriage license
counter .with Mrs. Matilda -:Morrison,
his , mother. ' \u25a0• Deputy County Clerk
Rlley -asked ; him. his name and the
name Runge. was" given' in response.
This brought out an indignant -pro
test from Mrs. Morrison/ who refused
flatly ;to give her. consent. \u25a0
The young man refused: as. flatly, to
change his^name, saying that only the
court could! do that for him." Things
had \u25a0' come to .a halt when " Riley - sug
gested that he might use. both names
in getting the license. It was made
out accordingly, "Edward A. Runge,

Cleanup of Berkeley Ordered by

BERKELEY. Dec. 30, — Chief of Police
Vollmer this morning issued orders, to
his force to gather in all peddlers who
are making a house canvass of the city
without licenses.. He has also issued
instructions to round jup tramps and
other vagrants.
The frequent burglaries during the
last month and the large number of
hoboes in the city • have made a clean
up necessary.
House holders were warned to- report
at once to the police department the
presence in their neighborhood, of all
men peddling: or acting in a suspicious
manner. gfr»lH
