This it Taken to Indicate that Ne
gotiations Are Fast Coming to
a Head for Building.
It rosy at least be said that the
negotiations for a move one way or
the other on .the Schllti corner a'
Sixteenth and Harney and the Boar.l
of Trade corner at Sixteenth and
Karnam, are drawing closer to a
head. Napoleon Picard of New York,
who win faid to be negotiating for
the purchase of the Schlltx corner,
remained In the city for sereral days,
and got some of the capitalist and
Insurance men. considerably wrought
up on a proposition to buy the
Schllti corner and put up an Insur
ance exchange building.

Fherinan McCennrll Dru Co. la to

store, wul la to vacate it within thirty
1ay. While It la said to be common
ttnowledire among even the employe of
the drug store that In thirty day the
store la to dlsoontlnue there, neither Mr.
Fherman nor Mr. MtrCnnnel will admit
that this la the case. Charles Slwroan
pleaded Ignorant of the whole negotln

cou'd not be wtperted ta know what was
going on in regard to that corner until
be read the Kvenlng Bee. "Tha whole
matter seema to be rague and up In tha

what Is te be done."
While the "Sherman VcOnnetl Irug

Those who want to continue the
present city government will sup
port the incumbents seeking re

that we should have some changes

In the early days of tha automobile
Many people thought It waa limited In
II radiua of travel, somewhat in tha
same way aa Is tha steam car. Tha atuam
car necessarily muat have rails to run
on. It waa thought that tha automobile
would require level, hard road in order
to realise Ita fall efficiency. Owner and
drivers of old-time cars would have
doubted very much that within tha short
space of a few years they would ba able
to cross mountain and deserts with their
cara and consider It only commonplace.
The development that baa taken place
In all mechanical detail of tha motor car
waa well ah own by a trip recently made
by a party of tourist over the Sierra
it.ountaln In California. Tha mountalna
were crossed through the Sonora pass.
which Is believed to ba the highest paaa
In the Hierra mountains. Tha altitude I
Mil feet.
After crossing the mountalna tha party
motored to Antelope and Caxaon valley,
returning the sain day via tha "H. H.
Vs at an altitude of 1,(00 feet and then
through Ansel's Camp to Sonora. '
During tae Jsy tha actual distance
traveled waa miles, practically all of
which waa mountain driving. Tha nest
morning tha party returned from Bonora
to fitockton. Cat.
Tba entire distance covered during thla
trip waa 411 miles. Tat, aa evident of
the efficiency of tha modern motor car,
it la noted that the Hudson alx required
only two- quart of water to completely
fill the radiator, and no water had been
put Into- tt at any time during tha trip.
Not a alngkf adjustment waa made aa tha
ear. . . ,
At a meeting held Thursday evening at
