Extensive Works Under Way at
Alameda Point for the New ,
Electric System^
OAKLAND. Jani 18. — Plans of the
Southern Pacific company -for the re-"
clamation of, a large tract of marsh,
land near Alameda point, the .clearing
away/:of t the.olcl roundhouse, a. land
mark there -fdr: years, and the erection
of steel frrfme shops on a large scale
liayp been started as a part of the new
plnht which will be required for the
operation, of Hip, .suburhsin electric sys
tehi: now. under' way in't.lie east side
cities and .suburbs.
I'art fif-the >teel is on the ground for
the' constniction of the shops, which
will include a main building 400 feet
long. .The remainder of the material
will be shipped to the site within a
short time. The Southern Pacific com
pany, is now using dredgings from the
estuary to nil a long strip and a water
way which flows through the marsh east
of, the roundhouse. Here a 'pile sub
foundation is to. be driven. Work on
this is also going forward.
\The shops are to be equipped with a
complete and modern outfit for all elec
tric rolling stock repair work,- such as
is in service at the extensive pldnt of
the. Oakland -traction company: in Em
eryville. ; The site v was selected by the!
Southern vJ'aclflc engineers who have
had, charge of the electrizing of the
Alameda train system. It is convenient
ly located and "easy of access to the
various, lines which will; be operated
by way of the Alameda mole. .The site
is south of old- Alameda point ferry
landing, and" the shops will cover not
only the location of the roundhouse,
but considerable more space. "%.
The roundhouse has been used for
many years by the 'steam train system"
as^ the.;' housing place of the Alameda
local engines.. Before tuat it was also
utilized by the old narrow gauge lines,
which were built by James G.Fair and
subsequently sold to the Southern Pa
cific company. \u25a0 \u0084
Southern Paclhc company officials as
sert that the Alameda local lines will
be ready for operation by electrlcity
within a few months. This will be fol
lowed by the extension of electric train
service to the eastern suburbs, as far
as San Leandro for the present. Simul
taneously work to change the Berkeley
local ferry service from 4 steam to elec
tricity is going ahead. The Oakland
system by way of Seventh street will
be -the. last to be converted, according
to present plans.
Included in the; new system will be
the. loop service of the Peninsular rail
way company, a Southern Pacific cor
poration, connecting the proposed
Franklin street Aiameda mole exten
sion with the West Oakland Southern
Pacific lines out of Sixteenth street.

OAKLAND, Jan. 18. — Immediate sen
tence, was demanded today' by 'Michael
J. Hart, who pleaded guilty several
days ago to a charge of passing* a
fictitious check.' Hart said that there
was no use trying to get probation, as

life and say a good word for him.
He said that he had been at sea for
the last 1* years, serving under a
great number of mariners who are now
scattered all over the world. Proba

reason he was not inclined to favor
