December, which even In the most.
prosperous teasons is, not accounted. a -
favorable month -by. real estate nien.
has not broken its record, although
contrary to the general rule there has
been more inquiry for downtown loca
tions than at any time during the lait i
12 months. This is explained by opera- j
tors as due to the fact that mer- j
chants attribute the slackness of the •
holiday trade to their being uptown. ';
and are therefore all the more eager J
to be back in their old quarters where '
the bulk of the population is during
working hours.
Conditions, they cay. have materially
changed from this *Jme last year.
Twelve months ago few firms were in
the old district and business was car
ried on mainly in the section west of
Van Ness avenue. The shopping dis
trlet was then easy of access. It Is not
M now, and It is realized by the mer- !
chant that he must be In the vicinity l
of the office and pistes of business to
V>e successful. This then i« the reason
for the numerous inquiries for down
town locations. In speaking of this
a well known real estate man said:
"Market Btreet will be the biggest'
end busiest thoroughfare In the west,
find I am confident that in 60 days from
now it will be a busier highway than
at any time in its history. The crowds
that street are growing larger ,.
daily, and this Is presumably owing to
the increase in the population of the •
bay towns. The larger the travel by :
the ferries the larger the patronage in ;
Market street, and this alone should j
make it emphatically the street for the j
retail merchant.
"This is appreciated by store keep- j
ers, for the demand Is unprecedented j
for stores in Market street, west from j
Montgomery as far as Sixth and j
Seventh, and I also wish to say that !
if stores are vacant it is because the j
owners are asking a rent far out of j
proportion to their value. It is abso- j
lutely necessary for property owners |
to realize this, and the sooner they !
do the better for the ultimate pros
perity of the city."
Operators are confident that after
the holiday* the real estate market {
vrill be livelier, as there has been con- j
nitlerable demand recently for all kinds |
of moderate incoming paying property.
There is not much call fcr expensive
holdir.gs. but for lots ranging from
?.'.OOO to $20,000, while there have been
a number of sales ifcade of residence
Lyon & Hoag; have put on the mar
ket a r.ew division of Bakers' beach,
along California street between
Twenty-eighth and Thirty-second ave
r.uts. which has foujid favor with the!
public A member cf the firm said]
yesterday that lots were selling freely;
la the new addition. The property Is \
Irr.prcved and is sold on easy terms,
alitUe above 10 per cent cash and $15
a month, and this is proving attractive i
to those who are desirous of securing!
a home. The sam» firm also reported!
that several sales had been made at j
.ni:rlsrgame and that'ther** was a re-!
vi.-al of interest in Mill Valley prop
erty. . ...,.- \u25a0;.:.,:- ,*-£. ... - - \u25a0"
The fact that home lots are being
purchased is regarded as one of the
. V.est sig-ns of the healthy state of the
local market. The belief Is general
that after the first of the new year
\u25a0 here will be a revival of operations in
all classes of property. People are be
ginnlng to realize that real estate is
the best kind of investment and it
would not surprise those who have fol
lowed the vicissitudes o/ the market"
for the last year If there should de
velop a big demand before the end of
January for income paying- property.
Judging from the tenor of the in
quiries no particular section of the city
Is asked about, f^r the prevalent opin
ion is that it is good policy to acquire
land 5n any part of San Francisco.

Some of-- the* property owners in
TJroad^-ay are objecting: to the presence
of shacks* that -have been "put In_ that
street east of Polk. One of the property
owners said that the value of his ' hoi l
in£* had .decrfiased: considerably since
an owner' purchased a number of thei
relief houses and pur them oa bis lots.]
\u25a0 ' - ~- ~4i-----2.'- — --'•
He said that all remonstrances' had
been unavailing and deplored the short
Elghted policy of the man. who for the
sake of getting a small rental out of
his land , had destroyed values. This
part of the city north of California
street and east of Polk has made great
headway, and there are . daily more
houses being finished and tenanted. The
apartment houses in this section of the
city have no cause to complain of pa
tronage and some of the small private
hotels have a large waiting list ,It ia
said that the apartment houses* and
private hotels in the burned district
which a few weeks ago were anxiously
looking for patrons are fast filling up.
A house at the northeast corner of
Bush and Powell streets Is said' to have
a waiting ljst of IS. This Is instructive,
as It shows that people are desirous of
coming downtown to live, and that if
rentals were moderate these houses
would find no difficulty In being filled.
The hotels report that travel to. the
city is remarkably good and one of the
largest had over 70 arrivals in one day.
This proves that there cannot be "too
many hotels in a city like San Fran
cisco, and it is owing to this large
travel here that the question again is
befng mooted of building a hotel in the
downtown - district. The argument is
put forward that a hotel similar to
those which were In Montgomery street
would pay, as there, is a large class of.
people who though willing to pay good "
prices "do not relish the Idea of going
to a hotel where they would have to put
on style," as one dealer expressed it.
A good suggestion was made by Paul
Shoup, assistant general passenger
agent of the Southern Pacific, at a ban-,
quet given, recently at the St. Francis
hotel for the better advertising of San
Francisco in the east.. He said that S..'
F. Booth of the Union Pacific railroac?
company had written- to him to the" ef
fect that the people in the, east de
clined to believe the statements of San
; Franciscans as to the number and size
of the buildings that had been erected '
since the fire and when shown photo
graphs: declared that it was easy "to
fake pictures nowadays."
Slioup remarked that the people in
the east must be -disabused of the idea
i that San Franciscans were fakers, and
i he -concurred with S. F. Booth that
i something should be done to set the
j east right. Shoup advocated the run- '
: ning of excursion trains to San Fran
; cisco from the middle west with a
rate so cheap that nobody would be
able to resist the temptation of taking
advantage of the trip. He thought that
this could be done, and that the ex
cursion could be so timed as to bring
j the strangers here by April I§. By
| that time many of the large buildings
will be occupied, many new hotels will
I be opened and the visitor from the east
i would be given a demonstration of
what the' west could do. ' , -'
"The railroads," said Shouj>,^."afe '
willing to do their part and it still .
remains for the citizens of San Fran- ,
j cisco to do the rest. If we are in j
i earnest about the matter we should be ;
i able to" .get", .many thousands to make :
i the trip across the continent, and when
they are here it would be ouf duty'td
entertain them fitly, so *that they : 'could :
return duly. impressed with the city's
wonderful recuper-ative powers.- To-,
have eastern *men come out* here and)
see what San Francisco has done would j
be a better adyertisc-ieni for us than j
any other plan "we could "devise." " j
"Willis Polk, who is the architect f or i
the First national bank, says that the !
steel and the building material has been j
assembled for Its construction and that j
the bank -should be occupied in about ;
10 months. \u25a0• ••-.\u25a0 J
It Is reported that J. D-. Phelan has !
more inquiries for stores in the Mar- .;
ket street "side of his new building than
he has places to rent. ; T-; ' ;
Good reports are received from -the
Mission ,Ih, -leasing, both of residence
and business 'property. ' t \u25a0
There,- hasj also been a good Inquiry
for lots in^ the Crocker. tract, also for

Another Hay ward Park event will
>take place this month which Is .of
especial interest to automobile owners.
When' R. P. Schwerin announced ' that
more money was needed for the com
pletition of the automobile boulevard
between San Francisco and San.Matec
the owners of Hayward Park through
Baldwin & Howell came to the rescue
and offered to give one of the lots to
the club, the proceeds of which were .to
go to make up the deficit in the "auto
mobile boulevard fund. 8.. P. Schwerin
on bahalf of the club accepted the gen
erous donation, and ordered the lot
disposed of by raffle, which will take
place on December 24, at the garage
of the Auto livery company. Tickets
are now. on sale at most of the garages
and also at the office of Baldwin &
Howell. the" price being $1 each. As
the lot is one of the best in Hayward
Park and can be sold for $1,000 cash
there is a lively demand for the tickets.
An Interesting contest in connection
with Hayward Park is announced: by
Baldwin & Howell, 'which -is attracting
widespread interest,- especially among
the younger, set, in and around San
Mateo. The real estate firm has offered
