Foreigners Buy Up Residences
Natives Cannot Afford
'to Live In.
By KARL H. VON WIKIJAND,
l nlvrr??l Nrrvlr* Mtuff r?rrr?|?on?lHiit.
BERLIN, Dec. 29.?Four hundred
liillioii paper marks' worth of houses
have changed hands in Germany
during the past year. In Merlin
ulone, one-sixth of all the business
and dwelling houses have been
bought up by foreigners al ridicu
lously low prices.
These figures tell the tale of Ger
many's economic collapse with more
startling distinctness than all th*
speeches made 011 this subject In the
Reichstag. The citizens of Berlin
are rapidly becoming paying guests
in their own city. ^
Foreigners are not only buying tip
all the available property en bloc,
but are displaying great discrimina
tion in the choice of location. Cer
tain streets in the fashionable West
| Knd can now be designated by na
tionalities. The I 'hlandst rasse. for
example, is Hungarian: the Czech's
own the greater pari of the Guent
zelstrasse^large blocks of houses in
the Zoological Garden section belong
to the Dutch: the Scandinavians
show a preference for ? the borough
of Schoenberg, and the Swiss have
concentrated in Wilmersdorf.
Serbs Own 600 Houses.
It is understood that the son o{
the Serbian minister. President
Paschitsh, has acquired twenty
three houses, for which he paid the
| sum of 200.000.000 marks, and that
altogether 600 houses are owned by
Serbs.

uor has brought you where you
?re today. You have given
me your word of honor not to
touch a drop of intoxicating
liquor the rest of your life,"
Coupty Judge Bleakley yester
day at White PlainB told Wil
liam Thompson, arraigned on
the charge of driving while in
toxicated.
Thompson went out of the
courtroom, free until April,
when he will be sentenced.
"The extent of your punish
ment depends upon the extent
of reparation you make to the
young woman you struck," said
the court.
Thompson has been in jail
six weeks. Friends offered hail,
but he stuck to his cell saying
he was going to recompense
the State as much ac was in his
power.
His one idea now is to get
work and reimburse Miss Helen
IJugan, twenty-five, of Bedford
Hills, sole support of her moth
er, who is seriously injured as
the result of the accident.
Thompson was madly driving
a lampless automobile along a
dark lane.
curiously undervalued. A house
worth 500.000 gold marks in peace
time, could be bought today for u
million puper marks, whereas the
gold mark today is worth 2,000
paper marks.
Conditions are such thai Berlin
property owners are forced to part
with their houses, as rents are kept
down to so low a level hy the naval
rent law, as to make it impossible
to operate those properties with
out a defici^. landlords are no
longer in a position to undertake
even the most imperative repairs
and the houses already showing
signs of years of compulsory neg
lect, would soon become untenant
able if they did not pass into the
hands of foreigners.
Until a few weeks ago. the heav
iest buyers of real estate were
Swedes, Norwegians and Dunes.
Americans Hold Off.
Spaniards were also much in
evidence buying up property for a
big Spanish consortium similar to
the American syndicate founded
for the purpose of utilizing marks
deposits In Germany. Strangely
enough, the English, French nad
Americans have shown less inter
est In this particular phase of Ger
many's "bargain sales.'' hut have
confined their attention chiefly to
big business ventures.
One of the eager classes of buyers
are big syndleates with millions of
|?pers marks at their disposal, which
they are investing in something that
"rust cannot destroy nor thieves
break through and steal." Numbers
of these big syndicates own Hum
300 to 400 houses each in Berlin ami
are still buying. It is estimated that
any one of the city's enterprising
real estate agents makes from ten til4
twenty million marks a day in com
missions.
If the German rent law should be
lepealed. it is claimed, and rents
raised to a Wvel with other living
expenditures, the value of real estate
would shoot up like a sky rocket.
GOLDEN^ GATE BRIDGE
PLANS ARE DISCLOSED
( Hit AGO, Dec. 29.?J. B. Strauss, I
one of Chicago s best-known civil!
engineers, has made public his plana i
for the erection of a bridge across
the Golden Gate at San Francisco,
which he has drawn up in conjunc
tion with M. M. Q'Shaughnessy,
San Francisco's city engineer.
Hitherto the bridge, the central
s|>an of which will be no less than
4.000 feet in length, has been look.'d
upon as a wild flight of imagina
tion, hut recent advances In en
glneering and bridge design have
n so great that the proposed
construction is now a practical
proposition, if and when erected
the structure will be the greatest
In point of magnitude and span in
the world.

at a local meat market.
John K. Raikes, Union Heights,
owned the bears. He had raised
them from cirt>s. John W. Duty
held a judgment against Raikes
and he placed the judgment in
the hands of Deputy Sheriff C.
S. Ash, who proceeded to execute
it by levying on the bears. It is
the usual proceeding to wait ten
days after issuing execution to
make sale of personal property,
but in the care of the bears an
agreement will probably be reach

carcasses, duly skinned and ready
to be carved into steaks, are in
