Oakland Is Closing Epochal Year
Conditions Never Were Better
in Real Estate Circles in
Transbay History
OAKLAND, Xov. S.—Steadiness of
the realty market and building activity
in the face of the approaching winter
season is seen in the summary of the
building permits for October. The to
tal shows that $619,073.25 was ex
pended in building, representing 425
individual permits. Of this number 225
permits went toward new construction,
with en outlay of $525,979.95. Although
the total of the permits for alterations,
additions and repairs ran up to 200,
the cost was much less*, there being
only $93,093.30 going into old construc
Of the permits, the greater part went
to one etory dwellings, giving direct
evidence of the tendency on the part
of rent payers to better their condi
tions by building for themselves and
becoming really an integral in the
community. One hundred and two of
the permits were issued for suoh con
struction, representing an outlay et
$186,610. Attention is next claimed by
the more pretentious two story dwell
ing places, for which 34 permits were
issued with a total of $118,449, For

at $19,260. three story concrete lodge
room building at $27,219, one story

deons at $13..V>f1.
Another strong evidence of the ac
tivity of the month can be had from a
report of the Builders' exchange of
Alameda county, which shows that the

ber of plans, aggregating the largest
amount of buildings for a similar
period In the history of the organisa

and Emerson schools, and other edi
rVep. th»» total for which amounted to
$1,453,500. This sum excludes resi
dence structures.
The consistent activity of the market
for the month has helped swell the
steadily Increasing building total which
will make the year 1912 a banner one.

to November 1, 1912. shows a sum of
$7,462,743.85. as against $5,841,819 for

to November 1, 1 y 12. over the

the monthly permits, one story dwell- |
\vz piacrs claimed the greatest in
dividual amount, totaling.- $38,750 for
22 permits. The total for the two story

Careful attention was given the mat

made to run all electric wires on the

of being in the streets, have been
placed Inside the sidewalk line and, un
like many other tracts, it will never
be necessary to tear up the paving to

Regal and Kline Kar Distributer
Pleased With His Work
Frank O. Renstrom, the Regal and
Kline Kar distributer, returned Thurs
day after a month's trip in the east
and comes back most enthusiastic over
conditions in the automobile industry
on the Atlantic side of the country rfnd
the success he met with at both the
Detroit and York, Pa., factories in
his quest for more cars. Renstrom
spent a week at the Regal plant in
Detroit, and while at the factory hie
territory to distribute the popular
underslung cars was increased so as
to include Oregon and Washington as
« r ell as northern California and Ne
vada. From the Regal headquarters he
went to the Kline factory in York, Pa.,
and while there witnessed the speed
meet, which he says was one of the
fastest in the country.
"At the Regal factory I found things
humming," said Renstrom yesterday.
"The plant is working a double shift
of men to catch up with its orders, and
I was given the assurance that the
coast would be the first taken care of
in the matter of future deliveries. The
company officials were most anxious
for me to take over the Oregon and
Washington country in addition to my
present territory and made such a
flattering offer that I took it up and
will immediately begin a selling cam
paign in that region.
"Conditions at the Kline Kar factory
were also most encouraging and the
officials were, anxious to have me go
to Richmond, Va,. and see the new
plant that they had Just opened. Here
on a 16 acre tract, in the heart of the
manufacturing district, the corporation
has erected a modern plant at a cost of
more than $100,000. For some weeks
past machinery and other factory
equipment have been shipped to the
southern city, and in the near
future General Manager James A.
Kline, as well as a large number of
employes, will depart from York, Pa.,
where Kline Kars have been made for
several years, to the Virginia capital.
"The Kline company will not aban
don the plant in York. A sales and
service station will be maintained
tiiere for the accommodation of the
many Kline Kar owners in York and
"The new, factory is the largest auto
mobile plant in the south. It will have
a capacity of 2,000 cars a year. The
first series, of 600 cars, has already
been started. When operated in full on

Miss Rosenthal Shows Excep
tional Talent in Difficult
Two distinct features characterized,
yesterdays popular concert of the San
Francisco symphony orcnestra. One
was Tschaikowaky and the other was
Adele Rosenthal. If I do not mention
Hadley, the director, it is because he
was a dominant figure, and not a mere
Miss Rosenthal made her American
debut in Grieg's a minor concerto, a
difficult work because poetical and not
primarily technical. Tschaikowsy's
"Symphonic Pathetique" was played in
part and exhibited the orchestra in its
finest, freest mood. Not before have
we heard Hadleyis instrumentalists
"turn loose" a* they did in that num
ber. They made the 5-4 rhythm of the
second movement a rubato pern and
played it with such an easy grace as
alomst to rob it of its pedal point of
The third movement was also played
—only two of the movements of the
symphony being presented—and gave
the brass department of the orchestra
a chance to indicate its fine qualities.
In both movements the orchestra un
der Hadley was easily at Its best, play
ing with a verve and spirit quite singu
lar in so recently an assembled body of
I was particularly pleased, too, with
the dainty orchestration given to E. A.
MacDowell's "Clair de Lune," which
was the second number on the program.
This is an adaptation for orchestra
from a piano duet. It was arranged,
1 am told, by Hadley, who certainly
should have claimed the credit, in 'that
case, on the program, because we work
is a delightful bit of tone coloring and
polyphonic shading for orchestra, with
the principal responsibility resting in
the bow arms of the violinists. Hadley
has translated into the terms of his
orchestra the peculiar limpid quality
of MacDowell's music, which, as a
matter of fact, sounds as though it
were written for orchestra and not for
piano. In that respect it is like one
of Paul Armstrong's stage adaptations
of somebody's short story. It seems
to be freer and better in Its translation
than In its original form. Those of us
who remembered MacDowell's playing
of his own "Idyl." Op. 2S, No. 4, were
particularly delighted with the bar
carolle swish of Hadley's orchestration
of "Clair de Lune," which suggested
moonbeams, dappling waves, with light.
Miss Rosenthal's performance of the
difficult Grieg concerto was quite satis
fying and poetic. She possesses a
vigoroue as well as a delicate technlc.
After the full passages for orchestra
her wrists were equal to the unequal
task of bringing , attention back to the
piano, whither attention was wont to
wander after Grieg's outbursts of tonal
splendor. It was pleasant to observe
In the passages of piano figuration
where Miss Rosenthal wove scattered
chords about an orchestral theme that
she did not let her sense of independ
ence run away with her fingers, but
kept her piano score well within the
outline of Grleg'e orchestral melodies.
No doubt this agreement between piano
and orchestra was largely due to Ju
dicious rehearsing under Hadley. Miss
Rosenthal Impressed her audience with
the authenticity of her artistry and the
reality of her musical and poetic gifts.
Her touch Is fluent, her ecale passages
elegant and even, and her strength
quite remarkable.

$10,000 ELECTION
One phase of woman suffrage in
connection with the presidential elec
tion was developed by Auditor Boyle
yesterday which should appeal to the
financial side of the fair sex. Women
who served as election offlc-ers will
receive $10,000 from the city next
Tuesday in payment for their services.
The 1,000 women who presided officially
at the polls will be paid $10 each.
This dent in the municipal treasury
represents only one-fourth of the total
to be paid election officers, 3,000 men
having served.
The demands will be passed upon by
the election commission Monday and
approved by Boyle. This will be one
of the quickest payments ever made,
due principally to the gallant desire
of the auditor not to keep the women
waiting and also to prevent operations
of loan sharks in vogue during former
election periods.
Throwing her shawl around the neck
and arms of an unidentified man, who
was stabbing: her sweetheart, Daniel
Bissett, a fireman of 65 Adams street,
in a fight in front of the Ripperdan
dance hall, last night, the young:
woman, whose name Bissett refused to
divulge, probably saved the man's life,
Bissett, according to eye witnesses of
the affair, had been making , "eyes"
at the other man's girl. This was re
