EVENTS IN THE COUNTIES BORDERING ON THE BAY OF SAN FRANCISCO HARBOR SOLD IN 1852 FOR A SONG Documents Introduced in City's Suit Show Big Haste in Selling Water Front OAKLAND. Oct. 16.—With what haste j the town of Oakland proceeded to give | away its water front within three j weeks of receiving such powers ; through Its incorporation in 1852, pre- i c ipitatory litigation which had its echoes in Judge Ellsworth** court to- j day, was shown by the introduction of j evidence by the city <k Oakland in its \ »ondemnation suit of property owned i by the Samuel Merritt Hospital asso- , ciation. Incorporation was effected May 4, j 1862, and May 27, an ordinance was ; passed by the town trustees giving I exclusive rights to the water front to ■ Horace Carpentier in return for the erection of three small wharves, which i were his private property, and a school i house which stood at Fourth and Clay j streets. The ordinance was signed by j Amedia A. Marier, president of the trustees, and by F. K. Shattuck. clerk of the board. Tt was filed with tl»e re corder of Contra Costa county, Ala meda county not then having been created. A certified copy of the or dinance was introduced today when City Attorney Woolner commenced a line of action designed to locate the low tide line of 1852. In 1868 other documents —copies of which were filed today—showed that trouble had arisen over the grants, so the city of Oakland, with Dr. Samuel Merritt. mayor, passed an ordinance settling all water front litigation and approving the transfer of Carpentier's holdings to the newly created Oakland Water Front company. After tbte, according to Woolner. Merritt emerged owner of the prop erty between Broadway and Clay strict south of First, now being sought for municipal wharf sites. Later Merritt deeded this to Henry Rogers, his agent, from whom it came to the Hospital as sociation, formed by Merritfs will. A copy of the original Kellersburger map of 1559, on which practically all descriptions of property in the down town district are based, was introduced, but a long argument was started and will be resumed tomorrow. Robert Leckie, who has searched records since IS6B. identified the map. It purports to show the high tide line of that year. Other maps by the geodetic survey of 1554 will be introduced later. The dispute over the low tide line of 1852, as it affects the Merritt property, has caused the city to offer $200,000 for property for which the holders ask $400,000.

Don't forget the children — their little insides need a good, gentle cleansing, too.
