The recom mendation •is made in a tetter written to the ' council by Walter G. Manuel, president of ,the \ park commission. Manuel' explains that^ the system Is in vogue In several cities and has proved popular. The" operation is similar to district street and sanitary work. Pro ceeding under the terms of. ordinances, the residents of any section majr select a park site and petition the council <to order, its purchase. The , cost is borne by assessment on the taxpayers of the particular district in which the prop erty'is situated and which will derive the benefit from it. » Manuel's letter to the council reads: "Concerning the acquisition of land for. park purposes, this board takes upon itself ; the responsibility • of rec ommending for your favorable consid eration the district benefit system; that is, .the cost in each case shall be assessed against property in a limited district that has been benefited by the improvement. It should be fully rec ognized that the lake and its shore linked parks constitute a geographical feature of: the city adapted for park purposes. only; and as^ its . development and embellishment proceed will be en joyed, and utilized more and more as- a central pleasure park. Therefore this communication has no reference to the lake and its shore park's, but hast bp& cial reference. to those sections of the city where demands, are. continually made for park spaces,' which will of necessity be enjoyed solely by resi dents of the particular section. . "In a number of cities this plan is in active operation and"*' while in • some cases it has provoked opposition at its beginning, the plan has In every- case increased in popularity: '-. In" Kansas City this method has been in operation and in 15 years sectional parks have been acquired costing $10,000,000 by the initiative of different sections and paid for by the property benefited. In that city condemnation proceedings were necessary In ' the first Instances only. Now as additions are made to the city, many property owners desire to plat the ground to include parks at their, own expense and deliver them fin ished to the city. The work is done under. the supervision of the park com mission. The change in attitude toward the park and boulevard system has been due in each instance to the eleva tion, of publio. taste, which soon begins to demand beauty in city building. An exceedingly important factor In this matter has been the discovery that beauty is an asset that can be realized on .commercially. r ; : "The ' adoption- of this- plan as the policy of the city is urged, amending the laws necessary to make it easy for the .people of any section to acquire for themselves suitable parks in much the same manner, as .when a sanitary sewer is needed in any section it may be petitioned .for, ordered done* and an assessment district named by the coun cil and the assessment collected by the city.". \u25a0; .;, . . - X^;.':. -:\ \u25a0-;-; -.v-- BERKELEY MAY HAVE ; NEW LAW FOR STREETS Acceptance of University Aye- nue Raises a Doubt BBRKELEY, Dec. 27. — As a result of the question raised this morning in the meeting of .the city council about the . acceptance of University avenue as a permanent, street, the council probably will pass a law governing the matter. In view, of the protest filed against the paving, of University avenue the council has asked for reports i from the city engineer and superintendent of streets, which will be presented at an early meeting. Both Commissioner McClure and City Engineer J. J. Jessup declare that the work in the street is first class. The council probably will accept it as a public thoroughfare.

This was decided upon after a communication from Con gressman Knowland had been read, in which it was shown that Oakland was not being given credit for the amount of freight brought to its wharves. Dutiable freight delivered at Lonff wharf and which should have been entered in Oakland's subport custom house and credited to Oakland's com merce, has been credited to San Fran cisco. It was shown that from July 1. 1908. to December 16. 1909, the total weight of freight discharged at Long wharf was 230,579 pounds, valued at $446,466.53. on which a duty of |32. 497.02 was paid. None of this was credited to Oakland. The chamber of commerce plans not only to have this large amount of busi ness credited to Oakland but also will ask that Oakland be made a regular port of entry. * . A letter from Senator Perkins wa» read, in which he stated that th» cham ber's proposition that an oil burning plant be installed on the army trans port Thomas had been submitted to the quartermaster general. Perkins said that he was in favor of the plan and would do all he could for It. ACCIDENT PREVENTED BY CAPTAIN ESCHEN Shipping Man Saves Buggy From Plunge Down Bank ALAMEDA.

Game Commissioner Bert Bl&acli arrt testified against Mlcbele. the "Regular" Physicians Oakland. Cal.. August 6. 1910. To the Public: I wish to certify that I hare been cured by Dr. T. Foo Tuen of chronic stomach trouble, so that others suffering from the same cause may be enlightened and so to him for treatment. About five years ago, while Ihrlnff in San Francisco. I began to have attacks of Indigestion, which gradually - in- creased until I had to call In a physi- cian, and while there I was treated by ttp» American physicians of good re- pute, but obtained no relief, the at- tacks becoming more fre^twnt and more severe; the pain in my stomach at that time became almost unbearable. Since movine to Oakland I have treated with six well known physicians who exhausted their skill with no good results. I suffflrad such Intense pain that I cried m acony and wished to die. The doctors saici nothing could be done for me except to give me morphine to ease the pain. But my friends would not have it so. Last September they " hurried me to see Dr. Foo. who had a short time b.efore located at 1912 Broadway, Oakland. After he had ex- amined my pulse he said I had serious stomach trouble.* I began to take his herbal -treatment at once, and after taking it for two months I noticed a decided Improvement, seldom having any pain, and felt hopeful and encour- aged. After the expiration of six months Dr. Foo discharged me as cured. .... Five months have passed since then and I have felt no return of the trouble so I feel the cure will be permanent My weight taken In health was 135 pounds, which had been reduced to 114 pounds when I went to consult Dr. Foo I now weigh 145. and think in a short time I will be up to my normal condi- tion in every respect. I found Dr. Foo a kind and courteous gentleman, and would advise those who are suffering to avail themselves of his wonderful skill, which far. surpasses that of any physician that I have ever employed. I believe I owe my life to Dr Foo Yuen, and- my gratitude is unbounded Respectfully, MRS. NATALTK DE REMEE. 1287 Sixth ay.. East Oakland. CaL DR. T.
