SACRAMENTO MAKES REPLY The Sacramento Chamber of Com- ; merce has ; sent the. following com-; munication to F. 'W. "Foes, president of the Berkeley Chamber of Com merce, relative to the proposed' change 'of the Capitol site: • Dear Sir — We a.re in. receipt of your circular letter asking nnr co-operation "for the general good of California in otuxice the I<egislature to sflbTjilt to Hie people a constitutional amend ment wtTeby Btrke>y h1:»!! Ix-come t!ie ~aj» Its I." 'and *skinr our body to ad»pt resolutions ' urging the submission of tLe unestlon to the people. . \u25a0 In replying .to roar letter xr» shall endenvor to do 6o In a disinterested spirit and regardless fit the fact that we are citizens of and repre sentatives of • Raeram-ntc. As citizens of the State of California we feel that the welfare of the State has arrester, claims npon o« than any one loesllty. and hence we should not hes itate to sacrifice local .interests if. In so doln~ <«rt> work for the welf<o- of the commonwealth. Th« following farfs. however. whMi we believe can neither be, refuted nor successful ly disputed make !t plain to ns that to comply* with tout request would be hurtful not only to the "city of Sacramento and the Sacramento and San Joaqula valleys, bet also to the State of Cali fornia as a whole: CLIMATE NOT UNHBALTHY tn the first place, your communication states that Sacramento "if unsiilted in climate." This statement; we denounce as untrue and most emphatically resput. As you know, the climate of the city of Ssrraroento j« the climate of the two great valleys <>r California, the Sacramento and the San Joa<jn!a. To sty that Sacramento 1* uc2t for the purpose* of » State capital la to My that the vast ar<-a Camprtidng the rrext val leys of the State are nuadapted to residence and business purpose*. The people o f the Sacra mento and Joaquin valieyß hare during the pest decade or more Kprnt tens of thounanOs of dollars «nuu*!lj la adtertisUis the statement throughoc: this cor.ntry and abroad that the climate of these valley* I» one of the finest in tto* world. - To admit your statement U to de nounce the people of the Sacramento and San Joaqula valley* s« public liar*, and to charge them with having willfully misrepresented the character of tlieir climate to the people of the world. To respond fevorablr to yonr request for unb mi«*ina to the people of tlie f»ursiinn of capital removal means tifat tbe-raeuil»crii of the legis lature shall 6ay to the whole world that they as representatives of the people, believe that all the reasons you give In favor of Berkrlev .ere lacking U Sacramento and the great valler'a of the Btete. A* to the correctness of yonr charge that the climate of Sacramento In nnSt we cball let the following recorts sriealc for themselves We <jaote from the statistic* as published by the State Board of Trade for the year 190). wherein we compare Sacramento and 0.-.U'and (tbe latter beicg the nearest city to Berkeley from which we coi-.ld obtain data), and we find: Sacramento — Annual mraa temperature, Co I* total rainfall, 20.99 Inches ; number rafoy days, 78; dear' day*. 203; partly cloudy days, 76; clnndy dty», S3. , Oakland — Annuxl mean twnperatnre. 57.0; to tal rainfall, 33.08 Inches;' number of rainy days, 62; clear days. 15<S; partly cloudy days,- 08; cloody days. ill.. . DEATH RATE IS LOWER ' In addition to the foregoing facts, we ' quote from the of£c!at records. tbe anneal death rate for 1906 per thousand, as follows: Oakland. J&.06; Bacramento, 12. . . \u0084 : • . - To say, as yon <Jo, that the present Capitol building is "outgrown,- worn out \u25a0 and ancredit able." Is a statement that Is absolutely false. Tbe present building is one of toe finest Capitol structures In the United States, and when the alterations are completed (now going on :Under the appropriation already made), it wlU.fumich ample room for all purposes of our State.gov ernment. It will be . one of ' tbe , most . beautl rol bcUdings In the State, modern in all respects - and one that could not be duplicated today for lm.tfcaa f7.000,W0. Add to this $ 1,000.000, Photo of Grounds Where New Capitol Will Be Located if Berkeley Succeeds in Its Efforts to Secure Its Removal From Sacramento ; the Taluo of Capital Park, which would revert i In the case of removal to the city of Sacramento. \u25a0 and the extent pf tlie Tain* of the proposed ihandoninent can be partially understood. Onr nnlr frulde for the future Is the exptrience of the i past, and this experience shown tbnt the erect ing of great public bulldlnjts In modern days means au oatla.r out of all proportion to the iultial estimate. We hare proof of this In the experience, for example, of the building of the State capltols at Albany, N. V.. at Harrisburg. Ta., and the City Hull in Philadelphia. The initial estimate for these buildings wan between two and four millions of dollars, the final cost of each was ten millions and upward, and the time of construction was nearer ten years than two; meanwhile, the ofttcial bridles were sub jected to great aunoyar.ce and inconvenience for the want of proper accommodations. It Is pointed out us one reason for the re- I moval of the capital to Berkeley that the State I cow pays in San Krancifro rentals amounting to i about j'JO.OOO a year which could be saved If the capital wa« noted to Berkeley. Under the laws of the Stale all of .these officials should make their headquarters at the capital. They do not do bo now, nor is tbeie any guarantee | that you can five to the people of California that these officials will do so even should the I capital be removed to Berkeley. . ; SACRAMENTO XOT ISOLATED It Is not true that Sacramento is remote from the main movements of the people, as you claim. There are six distinct railway lines cen tering in Sacramento at present, five additional lines aftnally building and two projected for the Immediate future, making it the greatect rail- i way center in the State, and the greatest west of -Denver, Colo. You say in yonr communication that the State capital at Berkeley would lx» visible from every Incoraiug Khlji. Lvt us remind yon that in the event of war with a foreign cation, the first point of attack t>n tl«e Pacific Coast would be Sau Franclwo and its vicinity, and the fir^t point of attsck In Ran Francisco and vicinity wonld be. as you point ont, the exposed Capitol, which would make it possible for the enemy to reduce to ruins In au hour an investment of tnillicns on the part of the State. In view of nil these facts we are utterly at a lots to see any advantage that Is to be gained by the people of the State as a whole by In dorsing Uie movement you represent; bnt on the contrary, we can st'c ' nothing bet needless and excessive taxation for nn indefinite number of years. We feel sure that you, in common with ourselves, realUe that the State is sorely In need of many public betterments In the. way of schools, asylums and other essential public utili ties,especially on account of the late catastrophe, which the State must meet, and that our great university at Berkeley Is seriously cramped In Its possibilities because the State cannot afford to appropriate the amount which. In the Judg ment of its representatives, is absolutely essen tial for Us proper maintenance. It teems to iv \u25a0d absurdity wtrn there are so many urgent and pressing needs, to ask the Legislature to submit to the. people a proposition which Is In the nature of a needless expenditure and which in the judgment of disinterested people will look like an act of folly. WORK OP REALTY DEALERS Ycnr letter would lead uninformed readers to Infer that this movt-ment for the removal of the capital from Sacramento to Berkeley is prompted by a. general desire on the part of the people of California, when as a matier of fact you know that this movement was Initiated by a coterie of Berkeley real estate speculators who se cured control of a large tract of land north of Berkeley, have cut It tip Into town lots and have been laying plans for weeks, and perb&ps months. In cdvance for making this capital re moval a part of their real estate campaign, and that all the Interest that has recently b«en aroused in this matter in purely artificial, has. been very cleverly Mrorked up by* those who are so directly and so selfishly Interested In this move ment, and who are striving to make the members of the Legislature and the people of California merely a tall to their real estate town-lot kite. Gegretting that you should have been led to use arguments in your contention which unavoid ably must reflect on the great valleys of tbe State and thns Injure the best Interests of Cali fornia at home and abroad, we are. Yours truly. THE SACRAMENTO CHAMBER OF COM MEECK. By ALDEN ANDERSON. President; JOHN - C. ING. Secret-try : H. WEINSTOCK. L. T HATFIELD. Committee. BERKELEYITES CONFIDENT BERKELEY, Feb. 24.— Turn their eyes in any direction they will,; the people of Berkeley who are committed to the task of making their city the seat of the' State government can see nothing but rosy light, with fair winds to fill their *sailß while they navigate the political waters which must >be traversed before Berkeley becomes the capital of the State. This feeling Is part of the aftermath _of th«, visit of the Legislature on Saturday. . The hun dreds of prominent men who inspected the site for the new capitol buildings > were so palrjibly impressed with the beauty and availability of. the grounds for, the purpose that Berkeley's faith in her destiny as the capital city was mightily/ strengthened. \ The launching of the capital ship was an indubitable success.i and those who know, the charts say that* the voyage now to jbe : taken by the Berkeley men in quest of a capi tal will certainly result in the bringing to this. city of the sought for prize. Berkeley men will be in attendance at the Legislature tomorrow, watching the fatft'of'tho bill which provides' for the submission to the people, of , the question of .changing the capitak from Sacramento to Alameda \u25a0 County. The bill 'will have: its first reading tomor row. A canvass of the Legislature; by citizens of this county has ... shown to the satisfaction of Berkeley that the votes , necessary 'to secure ; the j passage of the bill will be ready "when the bill comes ; up for a- vote. : There- is ap parently no serious opposition to- the bill. . - Berkeley men have ; noted, the . pro r * V \u25a0 . . ."•'\u25a0,. THE SAN FRANCISCO CAT/Iv MONDAY, FEJBRUARY -25, 1907; posals of other cities, Including Mo desto and Santa Cruz, that the capital' be moved to such places, and are not perturbed by the proposals. Instead j the Berkeley citizens who are in charge i of the capital transfer project rather, ' appear to welcome the offers which I other cities make to secure the capital. The logio of the situation appears to I be this: If other cities call for tho re moval of the capital they are bound to : show that Sacramento Is an unsuitable place for the seat of government, which is not a difficult task. When that is proved, thon Berkeley is willing to let Its claims be compared with those of such cities as Santa Cruz, Modesto or others. Berkeley's arguments -all call attention to advantages which no other city except a city in this region can offer, and when the campaign of edu cation Is in full swing throughout the Stale, as It will be this wc£k, citizens ; of California: will be -told In. clear, ac curate terms exactly why. Berkeley =be , lieves the. State capital could be profit ably transferred to Berkeley, and why It should be done, and done as soon as possible. The publicity committee Is prepar ing matter for general circulation throughout the State, and if the argu ments contained In the committee's literature do not convince a majority of the voters that the State will be bet ter and more economically served 'and every Interest be more properly cared for with the capital at Berkeley than at any other point, then those who are behind the project to move the capital will not be discontented. Their, fight is 'based on reason, sense and ' good business policy, they say, and if that sort of fight does not get' the approval of the State, then nobody in Berkeley, Oakland or Alameda will be disheart ened. NOVELIST GUNTER DIES i \u25a0 Noted Former > Californian Stricken Unexpectedly by Apoplexy NEW YORK. Feb. 24.— Archibald Claverlng Gunter, publisher, novelist and playwright, died suddenly at 10 o'clock last night, of apoplexy, at his home in West Seventy-third street He had not been ill and was engaged in writing the last pages of tho manu script of a play whrn he' /was fatally stricken.

' ' ; v PRAISE FOR SEA HERO LONDON, Feb. 25.— The newspapers here and on the continent are ringing with praise for Captain Sperling of Dordrecht, to' whose initiative and courage it was due that the last three survivors • of the steamship Berlin, which was wrecked off the Hook of Holland, were .rescued.

NEW ROAD TO CONNECT SONORA WITH TONOPAH Scarcity of Mining Timber Prompts Syndicate to Make Outlay The great need for timber to be used in the mines of Nevada was respon sible for a deal, recently closed, by which the old Mono timber r<sld, a thirty r mlle narrow-gauge line running eastward from the Summit, near So- Nora, in Tuolumne County, changed hands. The syndicate which has taken over the ancient road will tear up the old rails and build a broad-gauge rail road on the same right of way, to connect with the Southern Pacific jn the vicinity of;,Tonopahi. -» ' One of theVmost- difficult problems confronting the mine operators ,in the gold-, fields of. Nevada ia to 'secure tim ber for mining at a price which -will allow a fair profit in working low grado ores. As there is little \u25a0 or' no timber native to the mining regions and the cost of transportation by wagon is so great that timber often costs $50 and $60 a thousand laid down at the mine, capital has recently been attracted to railroad construction and much of the money comes from the pockets of the mine owners themselves. The new line will open up .a long neglected- territory in Nevada. It will connect with the Sierra Railway, a distance of sixty miles, ( by an electric system, which is projected by the same interests which have acquired, the. Mono road.
