Right £here, say the owl drivers, they will stop. They have involved Berkeley's Police Department in' the- squabble and they Insist that, unless peace Is restored, hack rides In that direction will be at a premium for a long time to come. C. H. Shaw, a hack driver, took a party of Berkeleyans from Oakland to their homes. He was stopped on the Journey by a Berkeley policeman, ar rested and compelled to pay the local hack license before he was permitted to, resume his interrupted trip. The ar rest aroused the other cabmen, who, after much discussion, decided that tuey -would hereafter cease to accept trips to the college townl fixe m;n,nixr,s planned Application was made yesterday by Elise Drexler for a permit to erect an $80,000 six-story brick structure on Market Btreet, east of Seventh. Other applications were made by the Swett Company, 818 Mission street, $50,000; Title Insurance and Guaranty Company, Montgomery street near Pine, $29,000; L. A.
