TWO CLOTHING SHOPS,
One Run by a Chinese Lottery Fiend and
the Other by a Half-Witted Knave,
After signing an agreement to close their shops— as all
respectable clothing houses are at present doing—
Now attempt to break up this movement, going back,
like knaves, ON THEIR OWN SIGNATURES.
Are such people worthy of your trade ?
Are Such People to be Trusted ?
A man that '11 go back on his word, much more his
signature, is no more to be trusted than a convict just
let loose from San Quentin.
We hope these people will reconsider their actions
and close up their shops at 6 P. M. and give their
clerks a chance to have a few hours of recreation.

The Contract for the Same Let
by the Prison Directors.
Bricks Must Be Bought Frcm th» Warder.
No Coal Received Tinder me Contract.
Financial Statement Presented.
The adjourned mectiug of the Board
f Prison" Directors was held ye?tpruay
luotiiin^ at its headquarters iv the Tlielan
liiiild'ng, lor tlie purpose of receiving the
revised report of Architect Scbaltzon his
plans lor the erection of Uie Preston Kefonu
School at lone.
At a meeting held on the previous evening
a number of bids was received, the lowest
of which was from Richardson & Gale, as
follows: Sandstone, 871,450; stock brick,
with sandstone trimmings, 563.950; plain
brick, with sandstone trimmings, $(H,200.
The beard considered the bids entirely too
high, and requested the architect to alter his
plans sufficiently to enable the contractors
to present lower figures. It was stated at
t! at time that the tower, composed of sand
stone, would cost about 513.C00, and it was
suggested, therefore, that the tower, or a
rortion of it, be disunsed with for the
l>iriitors Devlin, Sonntag, Craig and De
Pne were present at yesterday's session and
Architect Schultz reported having reduced
the height of the tower, and accordingly
Richardson & Gale reduced their bid for a
building of pressed brick and sandstone
from je3,!)50 to $."7,1G4, a reduction of £6786
en the original bid.
Director Sonntag was unwilling to award
the contract even at these figures, on the
ground that the appropriation would be ex
hausted before the building Is completed,
lie favored readvertising the plans and spec
ifications, inasmuch as one of the bidders
claimed to have made an error of several
The board, however, awarded the con
tract to Richardson & Gale, with the proviso
that the brick should be purchased from ttie
Warden of San Quentin Prison at regular
A SAVING ON THE CONTRACT.
In this w»y a saving of several thousand
dollars will be made on the contract price,
as the prison officials can well afford to fur
nish the brick material for almost any price
without losing money, having the advantage
of prison labor. The brick dealers of lone,
in anticipation of the proposed new build
ing, Bars advanced the prices, but from
present indications they will doubtless be
According to the architect's plans the build
ing will have a frontage of ltis feet, with
lliiee stories and a basement. The, front
sod sides will be laced with .slock briek —
crade between pressed and common with
trimmings of lone red sandstone. In an
annex, connected with the main building by
a corridor, will be located the dining-room
Tile lasrnient will be devoted to the play-
'in, plunge bath, bathing rooms anil lava
tory, "'lie officers' apartments and reception
rooms will occupy the entire first floor,
while the second will contain the library,
rendiiiu and school rooms. For the present
the third floor will retrain unfinished. Ac
cording to present calculations Die building
is intended to accommodate 100 persons.
The work of excavating is now almost com
pleUd, and tbe contractors have agreed to be
in readiness for the laying of the corner
store o.i or about December 20th.
After receiving the report of the architect
the board adjourned to meet at ban Quentin
at 1 :30 o'clock.
When the session was resumed at the
prison in the afternoon Directors De Pue and
JJeddy were absent After auditing bills to
the amount of 518,027T1 and salaries amount
ing to 56.788 87, the report of the Warden
was received and passed on favorably. It
is as follows:

TTTE MORNING CALL. SAN FRANCISCO. SUNDAY. NOVEMBER 9. 1890-SIXTEEN PAGES.
Suggestions Concerning Properly
South of the Park.
Future Offerings —In the Auction-Boom.
Sales Etported-The Market Showing
Signs of Activity— Noteß— Contracts.
In an Interview with J. W. Arnold of the
West Coast Land Company he spoke at
some length in regard to lands south of the
park in the following terms:
"Yes, I am well acquainted with the rapid
growth in values of property south of the
park. .Up to three years ago it was virtually
to the great majority of people an unknown
country, and, as for selling property there,
it was simply out of the question. Just
think of it, SSOOO was a fancy price for whole
blocks near where the Olympic grounds now
are, while further out toward the ocean
beach 5750 was the usual price for the same.
About this time 1 placed on the market 100
lots, and these were actually the very first
ever offered in this locality in subdivisions
and on the installment plan. At this time I
ioresaw the rapid growth of this section,
and all those who believed me, and so to
speak 'caught on' made big money out of
tlieii investments. The future of this locality
is merely a matter of time. San Francisco's
rapid grow is assured for the nt-xt century
to come. Owing to the shape of the penin
sula on which the city 1- situated this
increase is compelled to spread this way, to
say nothing of its proximity to the park and
other natural advantages, but the rapidity
or tardiness of this growth depends entirely
on the property-owners themselves. They
can (.it still and let the city crowd them by
degrees, or they can by the exercise of a
little forethought and a small outlay in live
years at the furthest have the city bounded
by the ocean and county line only, and the
means of transportation from tlwiice to ilia
business center. How can this be done?
Why, suppose these drifting sands had been
grassy slopes interspersed with trees and
shrubbery, what would have been the re
sult? Yes, as you admit, it would have
been the seaside re^rt of £au Francisco and
the finest residence portion of the city.
Now 1 will tell you how Ink can be brought
about ami at a cost not to. he compared with
the benefits to be derived. Get the next
Legislature so mm a reclamation b II simi
lar io that law now upon our statute books
lor the aiu.ilion of. our swamp and over
flowed lands, which, as we all know, has
given univetsal satblaclion. Let the bill be
for the reclaiming of sand dunes and waste
lauds within the corporate limits of any
city, then if the majority of property-owners
in any district wish to reclaim their land and
make it habitable they can force absent
owners and obstructionists to do their part,
all at comparatively email cost The sand
dunes of ban Francisco would soon be a
thing of the past. At rough estimate there
are at least S"00 sand-dune blocks of lifty lots
each, in all about 26,000 lots. These now
cannot be utilized, representing probably
about £5,000,000. They can be, as a whole,
reclaimed .it a co^t of $2000 a block, making
a total cost of about $1,000,000, averaging
say £40 a lot. I will guarantee, and any
a*Uite real-estate dealer will confirm my
statement, that this proposition would more
tl.an double the present value of these, lots.
In which case it is worth ■ at least $4,000,000
to the owners of sand-dune lots, besides
adding enormously to the taxable property
of San Francisco. ' Now, 13 the proposition
worth sen us consideration or not." '

AN OPEN LETTER
To the National Executive Com
mittee of the Republican Party.
At a meeting of the Pacific Coast Labor
ers' Union, held last evening in Irish-Amer
ican Hal), ami at which William M. Willey
presided, some routine business was trans
acted,, after which a committee of three was
appointed to wait on Key. Father Montgom
ery in relation to a letter published a few
days since and credited to him. '■'.-"'.
The Executive Committee presented a
draft of the following open letter, which was
adopted, and it was decided to send copies
to the National Executive Committee of the
Republican party, the members ol Congress
and to the leading newspapers of the United
An Open Letter.
To the Chairman of the National Execu
tire Committee of the Republican party and
all leading 'Republicans— Greeting:. The
Pacific t'oasi Laborers' Union No. 1 has de
cided to request jour attention to thefollow
ing facts, to which you are asked to accord
your careful consideration. '
In the face of almost universal defeat,
California, one of the most uncertain States
in Hip Union, in spite of a well fought and
bitterly contested campaign, rolls up an
overwhelming Uepublican majority. Why
is this? Dues it not behoove you as a lead
inn representative of your party to know?
Assuming that distance and the uncertainty
attending the enthusiasm of party triumph
in si possibly have obscured this important
point, it has been deemed advisable to inform
you of the true status of the case. We par
ticularly desire to emphasize the fact that
these are the conclusions of non-physcho
logized participants in the recent contest.
We had certain specific ends to attain ; the
Republican party showed the greatest incli
nation to grant our desires, const-queutly we
supported them. Chief among these de
mands »as the return to the United States
Senate of lion. Leland Stanford, to succeed
Vim are requested to remember that this
organisation is neither Democratic nor Ke
pubiieiiii. It is made up at men who have
been both, but who at present wear no party
collar. The members of our union are not
hypnotized by the idea of beiuc; Democrats
or Republicans, but are looking wisely and
sharply after their own interests. We have
found that the interests of ail workers are
inseparably unitil, and relatively the whole
people ol the United States become involved
with us in our demands. "We are truly all
members of one body." Keaiizing this fact,
we have been forced from municipal into
State, and from State we are impelled in
spite of ourselves into national affairs,
hence our interest in your proper apprecia
tion of the significance of the present politi
cal dilemma of your party.
Clearly conscious of the cause, we confi
dently state that tree trade rot and protec
tion taffy (with tacks in it) does not interest
us. We want something definite »nd specific.
The talk of protection that does not pro
tect, and tree trade under the competitive
system makes us tired.
The failure in the East and the glori
ous success in the West is owing simply
and s.lely to your inattention to the de
mands ot large and intelligent bodies of
organized American citizens who are deter
. mined not to be cajoled or driven iv to peon
age. They have become justly alarmed at
the rh)>id uosurption of our natural resources
and productive Industrie* by foreign .syndi
cates. They have recognized that t)ie main
factor in effecting these changes is a vicious
financial system that has limited our circu
lating medium to less per capita than one

In striking contrast to the defeat at the

heads bemoan radical measures as the causa
of your defeat, whereas the truth is, you
have failed in accomplishing anything ade
quate to the necessities of the hour.
The fact is. in dealing with starvation.
Senator Stanford proposed the food and ali
mentation dcmandi d, which fond you put
aside and attempted to divert the attention
of the sufferer from his agonies by the music
of a tin whistle and the dextrous balancing
of straws before his pallid and desperate
face. That such legislative bungling as this
should raise a storm of iudigualion is no
more than you could expect.
With the most respectful sincerity we
urge you to he strictly honest with yourself
and fairly face the issue.
There is no use denying the truth
that you have no one to blame save
your own party Ignorance and stupid

one remedy for a misiake — correct it, and
the sooner the better. There is but one way
out of the dilemma in which you are. Place

party for 1888— the stone which the builders
rejected has thus become the chief tttuiie of

Indies from aiciety circles ol Oakland,
Berkeley and also this city, were enthusi
astic spectators yesterday afternoon i;t the
University campus in Berkeley, where the
athletic sports of the Amateur Academic
Athletic Association were held.
It was tue iiist field day ot the associa
tion, but owing to the careful preparation
and energetic work on the part of the offi
cers of tlie day, the loud programme was
carried out without tiresome delays.
This relre&liinc result was brought about
by the untiring work of J. House nnd E.
Mays of the U. C. '91, the ornanizers and
promoters of the association. .Some credit
able records were made, and ono record was
broken. The following officials did their re
spective parts in carrying out the games to
such a successful eouclusion:
