TOPICS IX CALIFORNIA. PLANS OF SOUTHERN PACIFIC— ADVANCE IN : TRANSPACIFIC RATES— TO KEEP 'OUT JAPANESE. [BT TKi.QCHIPHTO the tribune.] San Franel:;eo. May 12.— Much Interest has been aroused here this week by the publication of a report that the Southern Pacific Company has secretly /bought in the last few months several blocks' of land in Main and Deal sts.. be ■ ■■••]; Howard and Bryant sts. These pieces of real estate are war the present railroad sta ii. a at Third andiTowiwend sts., and also near the new terrainusiof the Santa Fe road, at the foot of Main-;*. What the purpose of these purchases may? be is a secret, but the theory that la most Generally accepted is that the property will be used oltiher for a large Southern Pacific ofiloe lmildlnE or fbr a union station for « the two reads. The Southern Pacific is now at work building a cutoff fcom this city to San Kruno, on the bar.' shore.' When finished this will make a more direct r<«ito down through the Santa Clara Valley, and «*ll abolish the present circuitous line through the Mission District. It is also planned to double track the road from Fan Druno to Palo Alto, wfliich will do much to develop a rapidly growing- suburban region. The shortening of approaches to this city is made because this fail the coast line between this city and Los Angeles by way of Paso Rabies and Santa Barbara will be open for travel. This new line will secure all tourist travel, as it is far more picturesque, and avoids the monotonous Bui Joa^juin Valley, which Is hot and dusty for the great ej- part of the year. The advance of all steamship rates from Hong ICons an.l other Oriental points to San Francisco was a foregone conclusion, as the rates from this coa^t to "".!*)koha.ma and Hong Kong have been raised for some time. The de mand for passenger nerviee ,is so large that only an agreement between "he two companies was necessary to ore the s^sr)>er rates. From Hong Kong to this city tlv nato is now $225, an advance of -$-2(>. and it is .?ltK> from Yokohama. The present steerage rate f:>om Hoiv; Kong to this coast will remain at .SlH* MerJcrin, but the rate of ?4f> gold from this <oty to Hong Kong j will be raised. j The theft of diamonds wot&.'tK'fO&OO by George P. Hill, the butler of the Crocker House, at Burlingame. was a crime bjr vhicin th<^ thief se cured only a small amount of money. The dia monds belonged to the late Mrs. Fred Crocker, and were being kept for her laughters by Mrs. A. M. Easton. their guariiaji. The butler had come with excellent refer- no» s. but a few days before he gave up his place '-^c broke open the jsw» I casket. ca:Tie to this cir. ' and pawned the diamonds and other stones, \ ihich were worth $!».<nki. for fflOft It is belie fed he made his escape on one of the outgoing coasting vessels. A seven story family hotel -will be built at once by Edward B. BSnes, on t h«.- big lot at the northwest corner "f California and Jones sts., opposite the fine residence 3f William EL Crocker. Five years ago the f jundations were laid "n this lot for a large a ?artment bouse, but the joint stock company wllicb proposed to build it failed, and the work w. is stopped. The new building will be 115 by 137 Vz feet, and will have li.'it rooms. As it crowns ijie highest part of the Oa!iforma-st. hill, the v.ew of city and harbor is superb. The hotel will be opened next fall by the present lessee of the Colonial. This is a fine time for the sai; D- man. as the rush to get crews for vessels to Alaska and other coast points has advanced the wages of able seamen from %'±7\ to !*4i> a month. Even at th-se rates it is difficult to get crews, and cap tains shipping men for Cape Nome and St. Michaels must guard against sruilors deserting to try their luck at the mines. The various mercantile societies, of San Fran cisco are planning to unite and form one big commercial exchange. The Produce Exchange is taking the initiative in the matter. The scheme is to buy the Merchants* Exchange lot in California-st.. and erect a Wg modern build- Ing that will accommodate not only the Produce and Merchants' exchansfast, l«jt all the other mercantile associations in the city. The engagement of Mis? L<eila Grantland Voor hies, the youngest daughter of Dr. and Mrs. A. H. Yoorhies. to Lieutenant Guy Scott, son of Senator Nathan Scott, of WVst Virginia, is an nounced. Lieutenant Scott received his com mission in til** Regular Army tw-o years ago, and sine.- then has been stationed at Alcatraz Island, in this harbor, with the 3d Artillery. He ex pected soon to be ordered East. About the worst show San Francisco has seen fur some timt is Yale's "The Evil Eye," given fit the Colvmlria Theatre, li remains a week longer. John Drew is announced to play one I • i in "Tiie Tyranny of Tears." At the meeting of the University of California Regents this we.-k a few changes were made In the fa«u!t\- for the coming' year. Professor Bernard Moses, who is on the Philippine Com mission, raceiued leave of absence for one year, and his chair, of history, will be occupied in his absence by Professor Thomas EL Bacon. Japanese and Chines*- assistants in the de partment of languages were provided for. Presi dent Wbeeli-r, declared that this step was neces sary, owing to ihe importance of greater famil iarity with th^ Oriental people, due to the ac quisition and development of the Philippines. The Brown University alumni of Pan Fran cisc. gave a dlna.-r this week at the Bohemian Club in honor of Preafdeot Wbeeler of the I'ni vcrstty of California.. At the dinner the Brown Club of California wa.<* organized, with Xathan iel Blais.i-11. 's.'*. chairman, and If. A. Newell, ".'4, secretary and tnasurer. In a bearing before the Interstate Commerce Commission this credk at Los Angeles E. T. Earl, prerident of the .Earl Fruit Company, ad mftted thai ih.-re wa*= an understanding be tween his company amd the fruit growers' ex press in regard to a division of the citrus fruit business. This admission, it In believed by the complainants :n the case constitutes a viola tor, of th<- Interstate (nmmerce act. Growers of oranges and lemons jn Southern California have Buffered much from the high rates charged by the big fruit express companies, and this test ease is an attempt bO iwealc U'i the c im binatio.i between the companies. T'ao movement to exclude Japanese coolies frvm California Is i:i< reasiorr In strength. This iuf-k a large mass meeting as held under ihe >ttsplces of the labor uni.»n.'-. an ! smong the speakers was Mayor Pbetan, who clearly pointed cut the danger tr, the State from this horde of labor. The Japanese do not form as good a body of laborers as the Chinese, ns they are physically inferior to them, and they are given to frequent strik-s over trilling or imaginary grievances. The experience of the Hawaiian sugar planters is that the Japanese are very difficult to control, and that as laborers they an the poorest mat-rial ever Imported into the Island*. Another source of trouble is their de mand for political riphtp as soon as any large number are settled in any district. iIORRISTOWX. KEWB.

An enterprise that trill have marked effect on one '' of the most beautiful pectlorm of the Adirondack ■ regi"n Is the building of a railroad from Clear- | water Station, on the Mohawk and Malone division ! of the New-York Centra] Railway, to Raquette ' Lake, thus giving most convenient access to the tributary country, including Blue Mountain Lake, ; the gem of the Adirondack*. From the landing at ! Raquette Lake fast and comfortable steamers will i convey passengers to Blue Mountain Lake, en- j abDng them to reach any of the principal hotels In ! ten hours from New-York. The principal hotel at Blue Mountain Lake Is the ! Ctowana, formerly known as the Prospect House, : but besides the change in name general Improve ments have been so numerous that its old patrons I wiil hardly re ognize their former home. It is also proposed to erect a large bunding devoted exclu- | slvely to sports. Including tennis, handball and other games, for the enterprising superintendent Mr. J. B. While, believes the pleasure of his guests should be provided for in bad weather as well as in fine. The scenery of the Blue Mountain region Is un- ! surpassed, and with its magnificent climate there ; is bo doubt that this will rapidly become one of the ■ most popular resorts in the country. 1 FAVORITE XEW-EXGLAXD RESORT. The bold, rockliound coast of New-EngJand pos sesses such a multitude of picturesque and Inviting resorts that it is often difficult to select among them, but at the far famed Marblehead are to be found an aggregation of attractions which easily satisfy the demands of the most exacting. Situated on the most commanding Bit* on the ocean front of the peninsula Is the favorite Nanepashemet, a model of convenience, and possessing an ocean view from every window. The cooling breezes from the sea reach it from every quarter, and the facili ties for boating, sailing, fishing and bathing are unexcelled, while across the harbor, which is one of the principal yachting centres of the Eastern States, is the historic city of Salem, and the main land is lined with the beautiful residences of New- I England's best people. E. M. Brown is the pro prietor. . OPEXIXG OF THE SOMERSET 7.V.V. j Bernardsville. N. J., May 12.— About one hundred guests spent several days this week at the Somer set Inn. A majority of them had visited B^rnards vills to attend the opening of the hotel, and, while they remained but a few days, nearly all are families who expect to return for the summer. Among those quartered at the Inn are Mr. and Mrs. T. S. Ormiston and family, T. D. Hurlbut, ' the Misses Hurlbut. Mr. and Mrs. I. J. Greenwood, jr.. Mr. and Mrs. M. S. Lawson. John P. Guilford i and family, of New- York; Mrs. and Miss Colgate, ' of Orange. All of these, except Mr. and Mrs. Lawson, expect to remain the entire season. The latter will spend part of the summer at Tuxedo, | returning to the inn about September. Mr. and Mrs. William Bustis are spending a few ! weeks of th. ir honeymoon at the Inn as the guests ] .if Mrs. Lev! P. Morton the mother of Mrs. Bustis. Mrs. Robert Ballantine and her son, Percy Bal- : lantlne, returned to their summer home at Ber nardsville this week. Mrs. Daniel C. Tate. of New-York, has leased one of the cottages at the Inn lor the season and I will move to it Monday. Mr. and Mrs. W. V.'Sny- ! der and Mr. and Mrs. Chandler Riker, of Newark * who will also occupy cottages this year, are ex pected early next week. The handsome home of Richard Stevens, of Ho- ! boken. which is being erected at a cost of $80 000 j will be completed the latter part of this week. ■: C II ARMS OF MAGNOLIA POIXT. Only one hour from Boston, and accessible by ten daily trains on the Boston and Main" Railroad, j is Magnolia Point, one of the most charming of the famous New-England shore resorts, On the highest ground, with magnificent ocean views on three sides, and the fourth overlooking a thickly wooded country, stands the elegant Hotel Magnolia, which holds position In the front rank of Atlantic Coast summer resorts. Although near perfection in Its imposing exterior and In its Interior plans I and arrangements, a large amount of money has ! been expended in improvements, decorations and furnishings, making it replete- with all the com- '■ forts that are the results of modern ingenuity In | hotel construction. > For the season of 1900 the beautiful Magnolia j will open In June under the management of Albert U. Hodgdon.well and favorably known to the Be- ' lect class of guests at Watch Hill. R. 1., and the Ponce de Leon at St. Augustine. Flu., almost the entire service being from the last named hotel. Mr Hodgdons extended experience in high class hotels and his popularity with summer and winter ! • ■■•>'-. to whose comfort and pleasure he has ■ largely contributed are a guarantee that visltom ut the Magnolia will be assured a delightful Bum mer home. I NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, SUNDAY. MAY 13. IDOO. ATLANTIC CITY" CHANGES. ITS TRANSFORMATION FROM A WIN TER TO A SUIIMKR RESORT HOTELS TO REOPEN-NKWI.Y ARRIVED OUBBTB. Atlantic City, N. J., May V 2 (Special*.— ln accord with all the rest of the world. Atlantic City Is now In the midst of its annunl transformation from winter to summer- from a place where one goes to get warm to one frequented for the purpose of I keeping cool— and the whole town bears evidence of the fact that the change is taking place rapidly and surely. The crowds on the Boardwalk and on the avenues all have a vastly different aspect from those which visit the place in midwinter, while at the same time they have not yet reached the ap pearance of midsummer. The average winter and spring visitor Is of the leisure class, with plenty of money to spend and with a dignified way of spending It that creates an Impression of general opulence on the part of the entire floating population of the town. There is also a certain formality about the Social functions at the hotels and elsewhere. Then, again, as a rule the winter guest Insists upon having the highest priced apartments in the house, thinking himself ill treated if he does not get at least a suite with private bath attached. But in summer time all this is changed. Formality is thrown to the winds; the majority of the visitors are business people, who have Just so much time and money to spend, and insist upon spending both in the most advantageous and pleasure giving manner, and there are few who are not willing to accept almost any accommodations so long as they have plenty to cut and a comfortable bed at night. ASTONISHING SPRING PATRONAGE. The manner In which the hotel patronage has continued this spring has astonished even those who had predicted great things for the resort this year. In all former seasons there has been a gen eral exodus of visitors immediately after Easter Sunday, leaving the town comparatively dead until Bfter June 1, but this did not happen this year. Many went, of course, after Easter, but their going only served to give more elbow room to the thousands who remained. There has not been a dull moment at any of the larger hotefs, and it is a fact that the best rooms In the more popu lar houses have been at all times filled and engaged many weeka in advance. The number of guests at all the hotels Is now slowly increasing, and there is not the slightest doubt that every hostlery in the city will be --rowded to overflowing long- before midsummer, notwithstanding the new hotels that have been built this year and the great additions that have been made to some of the older houses. There will be plenty of amusement of a high class here this summer If present promises are all fulfilled. The Auditorium Pier, which was com pleted last year after innumerable legal difficulties, has been leased for the season by Alfred E. Aarons, of New-York, and Louis H. Donnelly, of this city, who promise to run good attractions all summer. The pier is to open the last week in June with "Mam'selle "Awklns," Miss Josephine Hall filling the title rol«\ The pretty little Empire Theatre will be opened about the same time for a season of first class vaudeville, under the direction of R. H. McCutcheon and L. Lawrence Weber, of New- York. The whale cast up on Briganttne Beach last week has provided visitors with a novelty which many have viewed with interest. He measures some twenty-six feet in length, and is estimated to have weighed in life about six tons. The life saving crew at Brigantine has been busily engaged all the week in stripping the flesh from the monster, with the intention of shipping the bones to the Smithsonian Institution, at Washington. This is the second whale that has been cast ashore here in over a generation, the other being a comparatively small specimen that drifted in at Ocean City five or six years ago. HOTELS STILL TO BE OPENED. While nearly all the leading hotels have bo«^n open for some time there are still a few which for various reasons have deferred their resumption of business, but the tirst week In June will see prac tically every hotel In town open and well filled with guests. One cf the last of the larger houses to open will be the Hotel Chelsea, where extensive Improvements are Just being completed. All the hallways have been recarpeted, and the handsome new dining room has been fitted up tastefully In preen and white, giving a charming effect. The old dining room has been transformed Into a cose'y Turkish room, and a pool and billiard parlor has also been put in this part of the house. The Hotel Chelsea, which is one of the pioneer hotels in that beautiful section of the city, will continue under the management of Its owners, J. B. Thompson & Co., who have many guests already booked fur the coming summer season. The new Hotel New-England, at South Carolina ave. and the beach, opened last Saturday under rr.ost favorable auspices. The hotel has been en larged and rebuilt, until it is practically a new house In fact as well as in name: It now has a capacity of over four hundred guests, is supplied with every imaginable convenience and comfort and is furnished throughout in the most luxurious manner. The proprietors, Bryan & Williams, will continue to direct the affairs of the hotel In per son. During the week they have received a large number of guests, and have many more booked to arrive in the n»ar future. Another hotel which will reopen shortly Is the Waldorf-Astoria, on the Boardwalk, between South Carolina and Tennessee ayes. The hotel is now booking guests, and will throw open its doors in a few days. It will be under the management this year of Harry Bo'.hman. an experienced hotel man, formerly Of the Clayton House, Wilmington. i).l. The Waldorf-Astoria is one of the largest hotels In this city, and one of the finest on the whole At lantic Coast. It has ample accommodatious for six hundred guests, and is furnished throughout in the handsomest manner. There are hot and cold fresh and sea water baths, elevators and all othtr modern conveniences, and it has as a special feature a tine dining room, located on the top door and directly overlooking the ocean. The ad vance engagements of rooms presage a highly successful season. The four baby lions born at the Atlantic City Zoo last week are attracting much attention from visi tors. The new babies are lively youngsters and give promise of growing up into tine specimens of their kind. The school children of the city have been in vited to name the newcomers, and the voting will begin in a few days. GUESTS AT THE HOTELS.
