C. F. Harrison ventured the opinion nt
the meeting of the. Real Kstnle. exchange
lnut Wednesday that no Kamnm Blreet
property east of Twentieth will Ret too hlffh
until It had reached ll.Ooo a front foot. Thti
opinion iu concurred In by a number of
other dealers. If that la truo, the-n tha
present owners of some of the property
between Twentieth and Sixteenth can
make, good money by holding to It awhile'.
But Mr. Harrison ihowed In the name

told of Clinton Brltfifs, who twenty ye-ra

Not long ago Herman Brothers bought a
piece of trackage property on South Thir

pickle and vinegar factory. And bo the
development keeps on. It is only a matter
of a short time, say the realty men. when
the demand for trackage will puuh the
denizens of the red lipht district to another
pert of the city. A commercial expansion
has begun in that direction and is bound
to conttlnue, for trackage property along
the railroad main lines Is getting scarce.

of administrative dishonesty as shocking
and distressing to the country as th.;

Relief Fund Partly Refunded.
One of the few admirable features of the
relief work In San Francisco Is detailed In
a late Issue of the Columbian, the official
patXT of the Knights of Columbus. This
organization undertook .to raise a relief
fund of $100,000 for members of the order
and their families who suffered from the
.apthquilke and fire. A fraoUon OVPr mm
was forwarded to the relief committee of
the knights. This sum was deemed suffi
cient by the committee, and further con
tributions were stopped at its request.
t'nilor dale of September 28 the relief
commltt'-e reports to tho national officers
of the order: "We have relieved all the
distress of our brothers whose cases were
made neceBsitous by the April disaster. We
feel that any cases which might present
themselves In the future will come from
other causes than tho late calamity and
that they should be borne bv the proper
local council. We wish to have It known
that we learned upon Investigation that the
number of applications for relief made upon
our board fell far short of that upon any
other fraternal organization in our midst,
The knights here were among the earliest
to rehabilitate. This statement la supported
by the fact tint, though the knights were

John and Herman Krause, not satisfied
