PREFA^CE. 



; In presentiiior this, the first edition of tlie Oakland Directoky, 
to the public, tlie publisher would ask of the people a generous 
allowance for any and all errors which may have escaped his no- 
tice in compiling the work. 

To carry to a successful tennination a publication of this kind 
requires a thorough knowledge of the work to be performed. 
Although our experience as an advertising agent and canvasser 
extends back a number of years, both in the East as well as on 
this coast, which has brought us continually in contact with the 
mercantile and nianutacturing community, yet it was with a 
degree of caution that we began the compilation of the present 
work. In making our canvass, several impediments were pre- 
sented to us. Among the most prominent was the difficulty we 
experienced in getting competent men to canvass for the names 
^ropcr^ and the incorrect manner in which the information was 
given at the dwellings. This will, we trust, in a manner explain 
away this portion of the errors, as the canvassers claim that the 
names are spelled as given to them. Another very great embar- 
rassment under which we have labored was the tardiness of our 
patrons in furnishing the subject matter for their advertisements. 
This last mentioned circumstance has delayed the issue of the 
work a number of weeks, besides giving us much additional 
trouble and expense, and although we have done all that perse- 
verance could accomplish under the circumstances, yet there will 
probably be some who will without rclicction feel disposed to 
find fault with our apparently inexcusable delay, when at the 
same time they may have been themselves in part the cause of 
our hindrance by not furnishing their copy in time, and agreea- 
ble to their oft-repeated promises. Therefore, this explanation 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY 



will be our apology and may serve to govern them in the future. 

Although in the foregoing we have spoken only of matters 
disadvantageous to ourselves, yet we claim that the work pre- 
sented possesses more than ordinary merit as regards its syste- 
matic classification and arrangement throughout. In this re- 
spect we are willing to compare it with any Directory of similar 
size that has ever made its appearance on this coast. 

The compilation of the statistical matter presented in this 
volume has been attended with more difficulties than might be 
anticipated. The city ofiicers are in few or no cases required to 
present annual or semi-annual reports giving the details of the 
business of their oflices, and it was -necessary to examine a mass 
of documents to ascertain but few facts. In some cases there 
has been a neglect on the part of persons connected with insti- 
tutions or business enterprises to furnish us information as re- 
quested. The various matters treated of in that portion of the 
work which precedes the tables of names, has been under the 
supervision of Mr. Wm. D. Harwood. 

In conclusion we would tender our thanks to those who have 
kindly furnished us with statistics from our Institutions of Leaim^ 
ing, the Churches, the Municipal Ofiicers, and all other sources 
from which we have obtained information, that has assisted us in 
compiling the work, and with the knowledge and experience de- 
rived from our i^ast labors and with the confidence that our ef- 
forts have not been thrown away, we shall very soon commence 
the compilation of the second Directory of Oakland for the 
year 18Y0, with such alterations, additions and improvements as 
present themselves. B. F, STILWELL.

The endowment of tlie University consists of the following 
property and funds : 
The site of one hundred and sixty acres of land, 

valued at $ 80,000 

The Seminary and Public Building Funds 100,000 

The prospective receipt from Tide Lands 200,000 

Other property coming from the College of California,. 40,000 



$420,000 
Besides this, are the 150,000 acres of Agricultural College Lands, 
which if speedily located, and held for a few years, will, it is 
believed, readily sell for from five dollars to ten dollars per acre. 
An appeal will be soon made to the friends of education and of 
California to contribute to the endowment of the Univei'sity, so 
that it may be placed at once on a permanent basis of prosperity. 
The enterprise is in its infancy as yet, but the Eegents are 
managing their trust in an efficient manner, and before the end 
of the present year it is expected that temporary arrangements 
will be completed in Oakland, and that students will be received 
by the professors, who may by that time be appointed. 

*The term Honorary applied to these Regents indicates only the mode of their 
election, which is made by the Ex-Oflicio and Appointed Regents. Every Regent, 
however appointed, is a voting, legislative, and executive member of the Board. 



MUNICIPAL LICENSES 



The municipal licenses are collected under an ordinance of the 
Citj Council, passed November 24th, 1865. The important sec- 
tions of this ordinance are appended :

incorporate the City of Oakland, passed March twenty-fifth, 
eighteen hundred and fifty-four, and repealing certain other 
Acts in relation to said city, approved April twenty-fourth, 
eighteen hundred and sixty-two." The section provides for the 
adoption of a general plan or system of streets, and for the 
opening of streets in accordance therewith, the principal sec- 
tion of which Act is as follows : — ] 

The City Council shall, when they may deem the same 
necessary, establish by ordinance a general plan or plans of 
streets, for any and all portions of the city not laid out into 
streets ; and after such plan or plans shall have been so estab- 
lished, any improvements which may thereafter be made, or 
erected, or constructed, within the lines of any street contem- 
plated by said plan or plans, shall not be included in any assess- 
ment of damages which may be made when the city proceeds to 
open said streets. Applications for opening any street or streets 
embraced in any plan heretofore adopted, or to be hereafter 
adopted, by the City Council, shall be made to the Council by 
petition in writing, designating the street or any part thereof 
desired to be opened, which said petition shall be signed by the 
applicant or applicants, and shall state their places of residence. 
If the City Council so resolve, it shall direct the City Marshal 
to give written notice to the owners or the occupants of the land 
embraced within the lines of said street, or owning or occupying 
the lands abutting upon the same, which said notice shall briefly 
state the substance of said petition, and shall require such 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 49 

owners or occupants to appear before sucli Council, at the time 
wliioh said Council shall designate by resolution, -which shall not 
be less than twenty days from the adoption of such resolution, 
and not less than ten days after the service of said notice upon 
said owners or occupants, then and there to state any objections 
they may have to the opening of said street ; jyrovided^ however, 
that whenever the lands embraced within said lines of said 
streets, or abutting upon the same, are vacant or unoccupied, or 
the owners or occupants thereof cannot be found within the 
limits of said city by said Marshal, then, and in that event, it 
shall be a sufficient service of said notice upon said owners or 
said occupants to post the same in a conspicuous place upon 
said vacant or unoccupied lands, and also at the office of the 
Mayor of said city, at least ten days prior to the said time lixed 
for said appearance. 

At the time appointed for said hearing, the parties notified 
shall appear and briefly state, in writing, their objections, if any 
they have, to the opening of said street or streets ; and if dam- 
ages are claimed, shall also therein state the amount thereof; if 
damages are claimed, the Council shall designate a day to 
determine the same, which shall not be less than ten davs after 
the time so appointed to hear said parties as aforesaid. TTpon 
such designated day, or such other day to which the hearing of 
the same shall l)e continued, the Council shall proceed to hear 
the allegations of the parties, and such process as may be pro- 
duced in support of or against the same, for which jjurpose the 
presiding officer at such meeting of said Council shall have 
power to administer all necessary oaths or affirmations, and if 
the party to whom the same is administered shall wilfully, cor- 
ruptly, and falsely swear touching the matter in issue before said 
Council, he shall be deemed guilty of perjury, and upon con- 
viction thereof shall be punished by imi)risonnient in the State 
Prison for any term not less than one nor more than fourteen 
years. Thereupon, said Council shall separately assess the 
amount of damages to each person entitled to the same ;

provided^ that if the opening of said street or streets shall bene- 
fit the lands abutting upon or adjacent to the same, and increase 
the value thereof, such benefit and increase in value shall be es- 
timated and deducted from the damages. If, however, after 
being notified as aforesaid, said owners or occupants fail to ap- 
pear and claim damages as aforesaid, the said Council shall only 
award them nominal damages. 

Any owner or occupant of land aggrieved by the action of 
the Council respecting the amount of damages allowed them, 
shall have the right to appeal to the County Court of the County 
of Alameda, where said question of damages, and none other, 
shall be heard anew and determined. Said appeal shall be taken 
by filing a notice with the Clerk of said County Court, and by 
serving a copy upon the Mayor of said city, within five days 
after said assessment of damages by said Council ; and within 
three days after the filing of such notice said aggrieved party 
shall cause to be transmitted to the said County Court a copy of 
the order or resolution of the Council, assessing said damages, 
certified to by the Clerk of the Council, for which copy and cer- 
tificate said Clerk shall be entitled to receive a fee of two dol- 
lars upon the filing of said certified copy of said order or reso- 
lution, in said Count}^ Court, together with an undertaking on 
the part of said appellants, in the sum of one hundred dollars, 
executed by two good and sufficient sureties, to be approved by 
the Mayor of said city, which said undertaking shall be condi- 
tioned to the efiect that the said appellants will pay all the costs 
of the appeal and all costs that may be recovered against him or 
them in said County Court ; jprovided^ he or they recover therein 
no greater sum as damages than were assessed or allowed by 
said Council, together with ten per cent, additional thereto. 
The County Judge shall order a special term of the County 
Court to be holden on a day to be designated, not more than ten 
days after filing said certified copy of said resolution or order, at 
which said special term, the said issue as to damages should be 
tried de n^>vo^ with or without a jury, as the parties may desire ; 
and upon the renc.ition of judgment therein, a certified copy 



O AKL A N.D DIRECTORY. 51^ 

thereof shall be tninsinltted hy the Clerk of said Court to the 
Clerk of the City Council, who, upon the order of said Council, 
shall cause the amount thereof to be paid by the Marshal of 
said city to the parties entitled to the same, said ju<li;ment shall 
separately state the amount of damages to which each party is 
entitled. If the appellants, or either of them, recover no more 
in said County Com-t than the amount assessed to him by said 
Council, together with ten per cent, additional thereto, he shall 
l^ay the costs of the appeal ; but if he or they recover a sum 
more than ten per cent, beyond the amount so allowed, he shall 
be entitled to recover of said city the said costs of appeal ; j^ro- 
vided, that if any claimant of damages shall not give notice of 
appeal in the manner and within the time hereinbefore specilied, 
then he shall be deemed to have assented to said assessment of 
damages by said Council ; and provided^ further, that if any 
occupant or owner of such lands shall fail, after being notified 
as aforesaid, to appear and claim damages, he shall be deemed 
to have waived his right of appeal to said County Court. 

The provisions of an Act entitled an Act to regulate 
proceedings in civil cases in the Courts of Justice of this State, 
and the Acts amendatory thereof and su})plenientary thereto, 
shall be applicable, so far as the same are not inconsistent with 
this Act. There shall be the same right to appeal from any 
such judgment rendered in said County Court, as if the action 
had been originally brought therein. 

"When the amount of damages shall be finallv ascertained 
and determined, the said Council shall order the Marshal to 
pay the amount thereof to the parties entitled thereto, and upon 
such payment, or the tender thereof, the said Marshall shall 
proceed and open said street. All streets that have been laid 
out by the authorities of the Town or City of Oakland, and de- 
clared to be public thoroughfares or streets, and that have been 
used as such, shall be and are hereby declared public streets, to 
the extent that the same may have been used ; provided, that 
private rights of property shall not be affected thereby.

OAKLAND CITY— PAST AND PRESENT. 



On tlie foiirtli day of May, eighteen hundred and lifty-two, 
when tlie land upon wliich the present City of Oakland is sit- 
uated was under the jurisdiction of Contra Costa County, an 
Act incorporating the Town of Oakland was approved by the 
Governor of the State, and on that day commenced the corpor- 
ate existence of what the present generation is likely to see 
developed into the most important city bordering upon the 
Pacific Ocean ; the western terminus of the Pacific Railroad, 
the greatest work of this or any other age. 

j The Act incorporating the Town of Oakland was brief, and 

its provisions were few. A Board of Trustees, consisting of five 
1 members, was created ; and in this Board was vested power to 
'. use the property of the town in whatever way would best pro- 
mote its interests. The property then at their disposal was the 
extensive water front surrounding the city, which was at the 
same time granted to it by the Legislature and owned by the 
corporation. The narrative of this property from that day 
i until the present time would form one of the most interesting 
I chapters in the history of California litigation that could be 
written ; but the restricted limits of a Directory forbid anything 
more than a faint outline. In this and other matters of the past 

we must be brief. Our business is to lay before the public facts 
, that are of present interest and importance, rather than amuse, 
' and perhaps instruct, by narrating events that have long since 

transj)ire(l. There is wanted a comprehensive history of our 
I city : its annals are still unrecorded. When impartially written, 



58 OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 

they will constitute a work of tlie greatest local importance and 
interest. 

Previous to the passage of the first Charter, A. J, Moon, 
Edson Adams and Horace W. Carpentier had settled upon the 
land now occupied by the city, made a map of the eastern por- 
tion, and in accordance with its lines sold lots and blocks, giving 
quitclaim deeds, transferring their right, title and interest. 
They erected the first buildings, and were in point of fact the 
founders of the city. A small population had been attracted 
here, sufiicient to require a town government. ; 

The Board of Trustees first elected consisted of A. W. 
Barrell, A. J, Moon, Edson Adams, A. Marier and A. Staples. 
Mr. Marier was elected President of the Board, and A. S. 
Hurlbutt was appointed Secretary, May seventeenth, eighteen 
hundred and fifty-two, Mr. Barrell introduced a bill or ordi- 
nance for the " disposal of the water front belonging to the 
Town of Oakland, and to provide for the construction of 
wharv^es," which was unanimously passed. The ordinance 
granted unto H, W. Carpentier, his heirs and assigns, the use 
of the water front for thirty-seven years, with the exclusive 
right to erect wharves and docks and collect tolls and wharfage. 
In consideration of these privileges, he was to build three 
wharves and a school house. By subsequent action the title 
was vested in him forever. The deed' to the property, under the 
ordinance of May seventeenth, and an agreement bet%veen the 
contracting parties, was duly signed and executed. December 
thirtieth, what is now termed Broadway wharf was completed, 
and an ordinance approving and accepting the work was passed 
by a unanimous vote. J uly twelfth, eighteen hundred and fifty- 
three, the Board of Trustees received a communication from » 
Mr. Carpentier giving ofiicial notice that he had built a " sub- 
stantial, elegant and commodious school house," and that a free 
school was at the time maintained at his own expense. He 
delivered to the Board a conveyance of the house and a deed to 
the lot on which it stood, the corner of Fourth and Clay streets. 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 59 

Aufijust sixtli, eighteen huiidre<l and iitVy-tliree, the Board 
adopted an official seal, and the City Council, at a subsequent 
date, adopted the same, sulwtituting the words '* City of Oak- 
land " for " Town of Oakland." 

August twenty-seventh, Mr. Carpentier notified the Board 
that in pursuance of his contract with the city he liad expended 
about twenty thousand dollars on wharves, and that he was pre- 
pared to make further outlay, but deemed it unnecessary. At 
the same time he proposed to abandon the collection of wharf- 
age, provided the Board of Trustees would undertake to perpet- 
ually keep all the wharves in good order and repair. The 
proposition was not accepted by the Board, 

At this time there was a demand on the part of many of the 
people that the water front property should be recovered from 
Cai-pentier by legal process, the action of the Board of Trustees 
having been denounced and considered by many to be illegal, if 
not dishonest. The popular element Avas not represented until 
after the incorporation of the city and the election of the second 
Council, under the Charter of eighteen hundred and tifty-four. 

The corporate existence of the City of Oakland began 
March twenty-fifth, eighteen hundred and fifty-four, at which 
date an Act incorj>orating the city was approved by the Gov- 
ernor. At the election for corporate ofticers, held innnediately 
thereafter, three hundred and sixty-eight votes were cast, and 
the following ofticers were elected : Mayor, II. "VV. Carpentier ; 
City Marshal, John Iloi^aii ; Citv Clerk, J. B, I)un«^linf'son ; 
Assessor, J. S, Tubbs; Councilmen — E. Gallagher, A. D, 
Eames, J. Kelsev, Geo. M. Blake, W. C. Josselvn, A. Marier. 
This Council had before it the important work of passing the 
first ordinances for a city rising in importance and having before 
it a future then deemed most bright and promising. 

April ninth, eighteen hundred and fifty-four, the first mes- 
sage of the Mayor, 11. W. Carpentier, was transmitted to the 
Council, and is the most comprehensive document of the kind 
recorded in the archives of the citv. After dwell injr at srreat

making many suggestions and recommendations, he glances at 
the future of the city, and seems to have correctly divined it, as 
can be seen from the following remarkable passage, which we 
copy from the minute book for the year eighteen hundred and 
fifty-four. 

" The attention of capitalists in Eastern cities and of men 
connected M'ith the several schemes for the construction of an 
Atlantic and Pacific Eailroad is being strongly directed toward 
Oakland as the Pacific terminus and depot of the road, and 
hydrographic surveys, recently made, prove that the margin of 
the basin easterly from Yerba Buena Island, within the limits of 
the city, would be admirably adapted to that purpose. AVith 
the expenditure of a small sum in removing obstructions from 
its harbor, the commercial capabilities and advantages of Oak- 
land would equal those of any town in the State. While the 
San Antonio Inlet, with its ever-placid waters, running through 
the whole extent of the city, would give anchorage to hundreds 
of sails of small vessels; the deep waters of the Bay of San 
Francisco at its north side aftbrds a safe and commodious harbor 
for the largest merchantmen. 

" The distance from Oakland to San Jose is less than forty 
miles, through a rich valley, the natural grade of which is so 
perfect that a railroad might be built in a straight line between 
the two places, with scarcely a rod of artificial grading. To 
Stockton, the distance by land is little over one-third of the dis- 
tance by water. By a pass through the Contra Costa Moun- 
tains, a little to the southward, and by another pass in the 
Monte Diablo range, in the direct route, a railroad can be easily 
constructed between Stockton and this place, which would be- 
come the great thoroughfare for travel and the common carrier 
of merchandise to the rich vallevs which skirt the Tulare Lake 
and to the Southern Mines." 

This message was published in a newspaper at that early day, 
issued in this city, the " Alameda Express." 

The earlier Councils of the city apjjeared to be inspired by 
the same feeling that animates the Council of the present time. 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 



CI 



They believed that the city was to become one of great import- 
ance, and they acted accordingly. A Police Force was or- 
ganized, and John Scott was elected Chief Engineer. There 
were two Engine Companies, and one Hook and Ladder Com- 
p.niy_Empire Fire Company No. 1, Washington Fire Com- 
pany No. 2, and Oakland Hook and Ladder Company. The 
cisterns still' to be seen on Broadway, between First and Fourth 
streets, were then constructed. A Board of School Directors 
was organized, consisting of Professor Henry Durant, James 
Lentell, and C. T. Jacobus. As these steps were premature, it 
was the natural result that the several departments thus organ- 
ized had but a Inief existence, and the management of all local 
matters speedily returned to the Council, and was retained by 
that body until the commencement of our present era of pros- 
perity. The Fire Department had but a short-lived existence, 
and to the present day Oakland has had no means of resisting 
the fiery element. The office of the City Engineer was then 

created. 

The Council was seriously embarrassed by the defalcation of 
the City Marshal, who. absconded, taking with him about 
$10,000 belonging to the city. He was pursued, and eventually 
captured and brought to punishment. The succeeding Council, 
which was radically opposed in sentiment to the one first 
elected, more fully felt the trouble attendant upon this act of 
official dishonesty. 

The Council of 1854 had passed an ordinance granting cer- 
tain parties the right to build a wharf upon the water front of 
the city, and granting other privileges, which was vetoed by the 
Mayor, August 14th, 1854. From this message we take a short 
extract, as it is the principal one of the very few written, and 
public statements ever made by the individual chiefly interested: 

" And in this connection permit me to ask your candid con- 
sideration of the fact that the fran(thise of wharfage and the 
land proposed to be granted do not belong to the city to grant 

or control. 

" The land mentioned is a part of the Water Front of Oak- 



62 OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 

land, whicli was ceded by the State to the town in tlie iirst Act 
of incorporation, passed May ith, 1852, for the purpose of 
enabling the Town to construct wharves and other improve- 
ments, for which jHirpose the Act authorised the Trustees to 
dispose of the lands so granted. 

" At that time the town had not the means of constructing 
them. There were but few inhabitants, and but little taxable 
property in the city. It became, then, a matter of the first im- 
portance and anxiety in the minds of those who wished to see 
the young town thrive and prosper, that suitable wharves should 
be built, as contemplated by the Legislature, and that common 
schools should at once be established. But how were these de- 
irable and necessary objects to be accomplished 'i The towns 
had received the water front from the State for tlie very purpose, 
and for that purpose was it disposed of by the Boartl of Trus- 
tees. They sold and conveyed the land, including that men- 
tioned in the bill herewith returned to you, to one of her 
citizens, under ample guarantees for the faithful performance of 
the contract, which he entered into, to construct three wharves 
and a school house. And in consideration of a percentage upon 
the income of the wharves, and the care and repairs of the 
same and in consideration of the premises, the exclusive right 
and franchise of wharfage was granted for a term of years 
to the contractor, and has passed from him into the hands of 
other citizens." 

The Water Front controversy was long and bitter, and 
almost every legal process seemed to have been exhausted prior 
to its final settlement by compromise in 1868. As an indication 
of the popular sentiment and the spirit which prompted the 
affairs of our city government for many subsequent years, we 
present the following extract from a report submitted to a sub- 
sequent Council, and adopted, upon a matter separate from the 
water front question, in relation with H. W. Carpentier, but 
bearing toward it the closest and most direct relationship : 

" The ordintmce which it is proposed to repeal was passed 
by the Board of Trustees of the To\vn of Oakland on March 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 63 



fifth, eighteen hundred and fifty-live. It authorizes and directs 
the conveyance to E. E. Carpentier, liis lieirt?, agents or assigns, 
of exclusive ferry privileges ' between Oakland and San Fran- 
cisco, or betAveen the said town or any other place,' for the term 
of seventy years, together witli all the ferry rights, privileges 
and franchises which now are or hereafter are to be owned by 
the Town of Oakland. The ordinance directing the conveyance 
to Mr. Carpentier is but one of similar ordinances by which the 
Town of Oakland has been unlawfully despoiled of her pro- 
perty, divested of her rights, and retarded in her prosperity, 
prior to the passage of this ordinance. The Trustees of the 
Town of Oakland granted to the l)rother of said Cai-pentier all 
the water front of the town, extending to Ship's Channel, in the 
Bay of San Francisco, together with the exclusive right of con- 
structing wharves and collecting wharfage, (without limit or 
restriction), for thirty-seven years. A mere nominal percentage, 
without guarantee or security to the town, and amounting in 
the course of two or three years to about one hundred dollars, 
is the only consideration (with the exception of a small school 
house, for which no deed is found) profterred the town for the 
aforesaid grants. As trifling as this consideration is, the grantee 
in the latter case applied to the Board of Trustees and obtained 
the passage of an ordinance by which the town assumed all 
taxes which might be levied upon any wharf or wharves which 
he had constructed or might construct. This would render the 
city liable for the State and county taxes upon sucli wharves, 
which, at a moderate estimate, would amount in one year to 
more than the aforesaid has amounted to in two years ; thus 
compelling the city to pay a premium to the grantees for taking 
all the property, ferry rights, privileges and franchises which 
the town of Oakland had, present or prospective, to give away. 
Under this arrangement, the people of the town are plundered 
of their property and their taxes t« pay the taxes of those who 
liave ])lundered them, and to support a monopoly which adds iU 
exactions to the measure of iniquity and injury thus imposed 
upon the community."

This report was signed by Edward Gibbons and Leonard 
Johnson. It expresses the spirit which influenced the Council 
from, eighteen hundred and fifty-five, for many years. We do 
not propose to revive a discussion of the merits of a controversy 
which appears to have been settled for all time. In the two ex- 
tracts from official documents which we have copied we present 
the most succinct statements of opinions to be found upon our 
records. And here we drop the cpestion of the Avater front, to 
return to it onlv when it is made the instrument for securing 
the location of the terminus of the "Western Pacific Railroad in 
Oakland. 

Oakland had several times enjoyed temporary periods of un- 
usual prosperity, but her career as a city commenced only when 
a sure and rapid means of communication had been established 
with San Francisco. The advantages of the town, as a place of 
residence, had induced various parties engaged in business in 
San Francisco to build homesteads in Oakland. The occasional 
detention of the ferry boats on the Bar at the mouth of the San 
Antonio Creek deterred many from taking up a residence, but 
upon the completion of the San Francisco and Oakland Rail- 
road, a steady tide of emigration set toward the city, and it has 
never diminished, a fact that can be proven by an examination 
of the table showing the receipts of the Railroad Company since 
January 1866. The introduction of gas and water into the city 
marked another era in its progress. To-day, there is not a city 
in the State vrith a more promising future. Our growth has 
been solid and substantial, and the present condition of the city 
is in every way satisfactory. 

Until within the past year our city has been considered im- 
portant solely on account of the number and rank of the educa- 
tional institutions located in or near its corporate limits. She 
has been identified with the higher educational interests of the 
State since an early day, and the selection of Berkeley as the 
site of the State University permanently establishes the position 
of the city as the educational centre of the State. 

The facilities for buildinsc a vast citv within and near the 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 65 

charter limits of Oakland are unsurpassed anywhere in Cali- 
fornia, The natural grade is almost perfect, and a complete 
system of sewerage can be established at the smallest possible 
expense. At an average depth of live feet from the surface of the 
ground, there is a thick stratum of sandy cement which aifords 
as lirm a foundation for buildings as could possibly be required, 
being as solid as a bed of rock. This formation extends to the 
■west far out into the Bay, and when the overflowed lands of that 
portion of the city are made available, none of the disadvant- 
ages will be found, wliich in San Francisco, render it dangerous 
to erect heavy brick or stone structures upon the made ground. 
The supply of water to be obtained in the mountains, but a few 
miles distant, is very great. Artesian wells of a moderate depth 
have been sunk in various parts^ of the city, and it is evident 
that from the subterraneous springs can be drawn inexhaustible 
supplies of pure, wholesome water. Several quarries of su- 
perior building stone have been opened but a short dis- 
tance from the city. It will never be necessary to go abroad to 
obtain what building material we may require. The supply of 
clean, sharp stone to be obtained in the vicinity of Oakland is 
sufficient for the building of a large city. At no distant day, 
railroad communication will place us in close proximity to the 
coal mines of Monte Diablo, and the cost of fuel will always be 
moderate, depending directly upon the price of labor in obtain- 
ing it from the mines. 

Oakland is certain to be a city of great prosperity and im- 
portance, in spite of any agency under human control which 
could ]>e directed against it. The present population has been 
drawn here on account'of the pleasantness of its location. The 
business of the city has thus far been coniined to supplying the 
wants pf its own people, and it is hardly possible that it could 
diminish. On account of their own intrinsic excellence, the 
number in attendance at our educational institutions is contin- 
ually increasing; and as San Francisco increases in wealth and 
prosperity, greater numbers of her luisiness men will provide 

(5)

for themselves homes in our city. The influence upon our 
prosperity which will attend the completion of the Pacifio Rail- 
road from one border of the continent to the other can scarcely 
be estimated. It will change the whole character of the place, 
rapidly multiply its population, create an extensive business, 
and give to Oakland the position of a commercial city. 

There are now within the charter limits of the city, or in 
such close proximity to it as to be virtually a portion of the 
town, not a few educational institutions and manufactories. 
There are two female seminaries of the highest grade, and one 
Roman Catholic Convent. The only college in the State, enti- 
tled to the name by law or usage, is in Oakland. There are 
two high schools or academies, that have obtained a wide celeb- 
rity, and are in advance of all other private institutions in Cali- 
fornia, if not in Oregon or on the entire Pacific coast. There 
are numerous private schools for young children, which receive 
an extensive patronage from abroad. There are two Congrega- 
tional Churches, one Presbyterian, one Methodist, one Baptist, 
one Episcopal, one Catholic, and one African Church ; and 
there are in the city eight church edifices. There are five 
public school buildings, two of them being expensive structures, 
and ornaments to this or any other city in the State. 

We have two grist mills to grind into flour the wheat crop 
of the county, and supply to our citizens an article of flour that 
has no superior in the State, or anywhere on the continent. 
Two costly planing mills find employment in supplying material 
for the numerous buildings continually being erected. Two 
extensive tanneries and one pottery are in close proximity 
to the city. Cotton and woollen fabrics are manufactured at 
our very doors. 

For the length of about six miles, our streets are beautifully 
paved. An equal length of gas and water pipes is laid through 
them. Over one thousand feet of the frontage on the San 
Antonio Creek is occupied with wharves, and the wants of the 
city are supplied by means of three steamboats and numerous 
small sailing vessels. The extensive and valuable improvements 



I 



OAKLAN.D DIRECTORY. 67 

now erected in tlie city are required by the present population- 

Within tlie past year, tliere lias been erected a Baptist 
Church edifice, at a cost of about twenty tliousand dollars. 
Repairs and additions have been made to the First Ct)n<;rega- 
tional Church building, to the value of $6,000 ; and a Congre- 
gational Church has been erected at the Point, which has cost 
very nearly the same sum. One block of two-story buildings, 
having a frontage of two hundred feet on our principal business 
street, has been erected, at a probable cost of fifty thousand dol- 
lars ; and a three-story building has been erected, at .a cost of 
about one-half this amount. Public school improvements to 
the value of about thirteen tliousand dollars have been made ; 
and a public library, to take rank among the highest, has been 
founded by the wealthy and public spirited citizens of Oakland. 
Proper steps have been taken to secure the site for a magnificent 
public park, and the erection of a magnificent city hall has 
been commenced. On every street and in every quarter of the 
city are numerous new dwelling houses, many of them elegant 
and costly. Two daily newspapers, conducted with ability and 
success, do credit to the city. 

The growth of Oakland, up to the present point, has been 
natural, and her prosperity is on a firm and substantial basis. 
As yet, the principal part of her citizens are engaged in various 
business pursuits in the city of San Francisco ; but there are 
most convincing reasons for the belief that in the immediate 
futm'e an entirely changed order of aft'airs will exist. 



FINANCIAL CONDITION OF THE CITY. 

Through the mismanagement of the Town Council in 1852 
and 1853, and of the first City Council, it become necessary to 
fund the debt of the city. At the commencement of the year 
1868, this funded debt amounted to $18,400, and was the only 
debt owed by the city. The Legislature of 1867-8 passed 



68 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 



numerous special Acts, under Avliicli the Council could issue, for 
various specified purposes, bonds to the total amount of 
$133,000, as follows : 

City Hall Bonds S 50,000 

School Bonds 50,000 

Carpentier Judgment Bonds 18.000 

Oakland Bar Bonds 15^000 

8133,000 

On December 1st, 1868, the date at which this review was 
prepared, the amount of bonds actually issued was as follows : 

City Hall Bonds $20,000 

Carpentier Judgment Bonds 16,000 

School Bonds 23,500 

Bonded Debt incurred between 1852 and 1855 18,400 

Total Funded Debt $77,900 

As the City Hall building is progressing rapidly, the re- 
maining $30,000 of City Hall bonds will soon be issued, and 
the actual funded debt may be set down at $107,900. 



City Hall Bonds. — The City Hall and other bonds of the 
city have, up to December 1st, found a ready market, either at 
par or a small premium, being regarded as fij-st class securities. 

By an Act of the Legislature, approved March 19th, 1868, 
the City Council is authorized to issue bonds to an amount not 
to exceed $50,000, payable at any time within fifteen years, for 
the purchase of land and the erection ot a City Hall. The 
bonds are to be sold to the highest bidder, after advertisement, 
or at par at any time, the proceeds being placed to the credit of 
the Building Fund, to be expended under the direction of the 
Council for the purchase of a suitable site for a City Hall and 
the erection of such building. If such bonds cannot be sold for 
ninety cents on the dollar, in gold, the Council are authorized 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 69 

to levy an annual tax of fifty cents on each one hundred dollars 
of assessed i^roperty, for the purposes mentioned. After any of 
the bonds have been sold, and until all have been redeemed, the 
Council are required to levy an annual tax sufficient to pay the 
interest that may each year accrue. If tliere should be no 
money to the credit of the Interest Fund, the Council is 
required to transfer an amount from any other fund, except the 
School Fund, for the purpose of paying whatever interest may 
be due upon the bonds issued. The Council may also levy an 
annual tax, not to exceed ten cents on each one hundred dollars, 
for the purpose of redeeming bonds. In the year 1880 the 
Council is required to levy a tax sufficient to redeem one-lialf 
the bonds then outstanding ; and in the year 1882 they shall 
levy a tax sufficient for the redemption of the remainder. 

School Bands. — By an Act of the Legislature, approved 
March 13th, 1868, the City Council was authorized to issue and 
sell bonds to an amount not exceeding $50f<>00, payable at any 
time within ten years, to bear interest at a rate not to exceed 
ten per cent, per annum, payable on the second day of January 
of each year. The bonds are to be in sums of not less than $100 
or more than $500 each, and must have coupons attached, 
signed by the Mayor and City Treasurer. The bonds can be 
sold by the Council at any meeting at par ; otherwise, sealed 
proposals must be advertised for ; but no bonds shall be sold for 
less than ninety cents, in gold, upon the par value. The pro- 
ceeds of the sale of these bonds are to be paid into the City 
Treasury and placed to the credit of the School Fund. Such 
money shall be used for the sole purpose of procuring land and 
erecting school houses; but no portion shall be expended %vith- 
out the consent of four members of the Council and four mem- 
bers of the Board of Education. After any of these bonds are 
sold, and until all bonds sold under this Act are redeemed, the 
Council is required to levy a tax upon city property sufficient to 
pay the interes* upon the outstanding bonds. Any surplus 
money shall ])e applied to the redemption of bonds. Tlie Coun- 



TO OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 

cil may, each year, until 1878, levy a tax, not to exceed ten cents 
on each one hundred dollars of assessed property, for the 
redemption of bonds; and whenever the amount so raised shall 
be one thousand dollars or more, it shall be applied to that pur- 
pose. In the year 1875 the Council is required to levy a tax 
suthcient to redeem one-half the bonds then outstanding ; and 
in 1877 they shall levy a tax sufficient to redeem the remainder 
of the bonds that may be issued under this Act. 

Pursuant to the provisions of this Act, bonds to the amount 
of $23,500 have been issued. Of this amount, $10,000 were 
required for the payment for Lafayette Grammar School build- 
ing and the Point School house, debts contracted by the City 
Council prior to the passage of the Act. 

Judgment Bonds. — An Act supplemental to the City Hall 
Act, approved March 28th, 1868, empowers the City Council to 
issue bonds to an anfount not exceeding $18,000, to be applied 
to the payment of any iinal judgment existing against the city. 
The bonds are similar in all respects to those issued under the 
City Hall Bond Act. Tinder this Act, bonds to the amount of 
$16,000 have been issued to E. R. Carpentier, in satisfaction for 
a final judgment against the city, held by him. 

Ookland Bar Bonds. — By an Act approved March 28th, 
1868, the Council are authorized to issue bonds to the amount 
of $15,000, the proceeds to be applied toward removing obstruc- 
tions at the mouth of the San Antonio Creek, so as to render 
the same navigable. These bonds are to be similar in all re- 
spects to those issued under the City Hall Bond Act. The 
Council are, in addition, authorized to raise anually, by direct 
taxation, a sum not to exceed $5,000, to be applied to the same 
purpose. No definite action has been taken by the Council up 
to the date of this writing, to avail itself of the privileges per- 
mitted by this Act, no bonds having been issued, and no legis- 
lation having this end in view having been commenced.

It will be seen from the above that the expenses of the city 
have rapidly increased, and that its receipts have increased in 
an apparently greater ratio. In reality, the receipts have not in- 
creased as rapidly as the expenses, the apparent increase being 
due to the sale of the bonds. The actual amount of money in 
the Treasurv, December 5th, including the total tax collected 
for the fiscal year 1868-9, was $7,233 61, and the total liabili- 
ties amounted to $11,824 89, showing a large deficiency, and 
demonstrating the necessity of borrowing at least $10,000, the 



72 OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 

fullest amount permitted by the charter, to meet current ex- 
penses. The receipts for municipal licenses issued during the 
lirst two months of the last quarter of the year 1868, amounted 
to $1,720 25, whicli may be taken as the average quarterly 
amount, licenses being payable in advance. 

The gas bill for the- month of October was 834:6 57^. There 
were in use at the expiration of that month sixty street lamps, 
and under the present contract 22^ cents per lamp is paid for 
each night, and the price will so remain until the number of 
lamps exceeds 250, when the price will be 20 cents. 

The monthly amount of the salaries paid to the city Super- 
intendent, Secretary of the Board of Education, and the 
Teachers in the employ of the School Department is $1,133 33,, 
and there being ten school months in the year, the annual 
amoimt, upon the present scale, would consequently be 
$11,333 30. Under the new rules of the Board of Education, 
teachers are to be paid twelve months during the year, but the 
total annual amount so paid will be the same as formerly. The 
revenue of the School Dejjartment consists in thirty per cent of 
the city taxes, thirty-five cents on each one hundred dollars of 
assessed valuation from the State and county taxes. The 
School Department has lived within its means, and while most 
of the city ofiicials will be obliged to wait for their salaries 
for a long period, perhaps for a whole year, the Public School 
Teachers will be able to receive their salaries as quickly as they 
become due. 

The rate of the city taxation, for all purposes, is one per cent, 
on the assessed value of the property within the limits of the 
city. The total valuation for the last fiscal year was $3,364,078 
and the tax, $33,360 78. Of this tax, $27,957 83 were col- 
lected, leaving a delinquency of $5,682 95. By ordinance, the 
monies received were apportioned to the several funds in the 
following ratio :

Salary Fund 25 cts. 

General Fund 15 cts. 

Street Li«dit Fund 17 cts. 

Interest Fund 07 cts. 

Street Fund 06 cts. 

School Fund 30 cts. 

Total 100 



There is a Building Fund, created by special Act of the 
Legislature, to which no city taxes has ever been apportioned. 

THE EDWARD K. CARPENTIER SUITS. 

On August ITtli, 1S6S, the City Council adopted a final reso- 
lution authorizing the City Clerk to issue to Edward R. Carpen- 
tier bonds to the amount of $16,000, in satisfaction for the 
judgment held by him against the City of Oakland. Thus ter- 
minated a series of law suits which had been maintained for 
fourteen years, the city paying the full amount demanded by 
Mr. Carpentier and allowed by the Twelfth District Court. 

February 11th, 1854, the Board of Trustees of the then Town 
of Oakland employed E. R. Carpentier to defend certain injunc- 
tion suits brought by John C. Hays and others against John 
Ilogan, Town Marshal, to restrain the collection of to"sra taxes, 
at a price not to exceed $1,000. The service Avas rendered, and 
a warrant for the payment of the stipulated price was issued. 
Other legal services were performed, and other claims accrued ; 
and claims being made which were deemed unjust and un- 
founded, the payment was resisted, and litigation has continued 
from 1854 imtil 1868, when in the Twelfth District Court judg- 
ment was rendered for $15,225 88, debt and damages, and costs, 
and disbursements, and percentage allowed by law ; the amount 
of the judgment to bear interest at the rate of ten per cent, per 
annum. When by order of the Council the bonds were issued, 
the debt amounted to $16,000, which sum was received in full 
payment of the judgment.

THE PUBLIC SCUOOLS. 

City Superintendent — L. Walker. 

Board of Education. — President — B. T. Martin, N. B. Hoyt, 
E. E. Cole, G. W. Amies, W. D. Ilarwood, L. Hamilton, Edw. 
McLean, 

The Public Schools of Oakland are in a condition that is most 
satifactory to the people and creditable to the city. We have 
five school houses, containing sixteen class-rooms. Twelve 
teachers are in the employ of the Department, eleven of the 
number being females. Lafavette Grammar School contains 
four class-rooms, in which studies of the Grammar School grade 
are taught. The eight remaining classes are of the^ primary 
grades. 

In 1866, the Board of Education was first created by Act of 
the Legislature, and given full control of the City School Fund. 
Under this Act the powers of the Board were quite restricted, 
and in March, 1860, the Legislature passed another law, under 
which the present Board was elected, and is now acting. This 
Act provides that the Board shall consist of seven Directors ; 
three and four to be elected each alternate year, and one Di- 
rector to be chosen from each Ward of the city, whenever such 
Wards are established, if they do not exceed seven in number. 
The Board has the sole power to establish and maintain Public 
Schools in Oakland ; employ and dismiss teachers ; provide 
suitable rules and regulations for the government of the schools ; 
procure supplies ; build, alter, repair, and rent school buildings ; 
purchase and sell land for school purposes, with the concurrent 
vote of the Council ; maintain actions at law ; determine the 
amount of school tax to be levied by the Council. The Board 
has exclusive control of the School Fund, and has ample power 
to carry into eftect all the provisions of the Act. 

No teacher can be employed in the School Department who 
does not bear a certificate issued by the City Board of Examina- 
tion, and the Board of Education can determine upon what 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. T5 

qualifications shall be possessed bj teachers in its employ. 

A City Superintendent of Schools is chosen at each charter 
election. • He is the executive officer, and upon him falls the 
task of havint: the immediate care of the schools. The Act is 
elaborate in its details, and if the workings of the Department 
should be unsatisfactory it will not be on account of the insuf- 
■ficiency of the law creating it. 

Witli the concurrent vote of the City Council, the Board of 
Education can use the proceeds of the sale of bonds to the value 
of $50,000, for building purposes. The outlines of the Act 
authorizing the issuance of such bonds can be found elsewhere. 
Prior to the passage of the Act, there was a school debt of 
$10,000, incurred in the erection of Lafayette Grammar School 
Building, and in making various school improvements. This 
amount was paid by an issue of bonds. For improvements 
made during the present year, bonds to the amount of $13,500 
have been issued. 

The salaries have been fixed as follows : 



Grammar Masters $175 per month. 

Principals 100 " 

Assistants T5 " 



There are ten school months in the vear, under the former 
rules of the Board. Under newly adopted rules, the teachers 
are paid for twelve months, but the monthly amount is so re- 
duced as to keep the annual pay the same 

The number of children as ascertained bv School Census 
Marshals, for the past six years, is as follows : 

School Census of 1803 811 

School Census of 1804 1,043 

School Census of 1805 1,253 

School Census of 1800 1,282 

School Census of 1867 1,532 

School Census of 1868 •. 1,735 



'i^ OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 

The census for some of the years mentioned above shows the 
total number of children under twenty-one years of age, while 
at other times it shows the number under eighteen years of age ; 
and the census for the last year gives the number under fifteen 
years of age. A strictly accurate idea of the increase of popu- 
lation cannot, therefore, be derived from these figures. 

During the year 1863, the average daily attendance at the 
Public School was 115. From July, 1866, to July 1867, the 
averao;e dailv attendance is estimated at 311. The estimated 
average daily attendance from August, 1867, to June, 1868, is 
461. At the present time the number of school children for 
which Oakland is entitled to draw State and County moneys is 
1,038. 

The school improvements made during the past year are 
extensive. At the Oakland Point, an eight-room school house has 
been erected, at a cost of $8,000. The four rooms upon the 
lower floor only are finished, and will be used for both graminar 
and primary classes. School house No. 1, has been so altered 
as to contain three rooms instead of two, as formerlv, and a 
wing containing one room has been added to School-house No. 
2. Other improvements are in contemplation. 

The school houses are furnished neatly, though not expen- 
sively, and each building is provided with a parlor-organ, except 
Lafayette Grammar School, for which a piano has been pro- 
cured. The studies pursued are similar to those in the San 
Francisco Schools, and the pupils in our Grammar School are 
carried through precisely the same course of study as the youth 
of that city. 

The Lafayette Grammar School is located on the block north 
of the Public Square of that name, and is under the control of 
J. B, McChesney, the Grammar Master, The Assistants are 
Mary Lichten thaler, Fanny E. Willis, and H. E. Jackson. The 
attendance during the past term has been on the average two 
hundred scholars. 

Primary No. 1, is located on the same block with Lafavette 
Grammar School. Mrs. M. AV, Phelps is Principal, and Eliza 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 77 

P. Brown and M. E. Ludwig are Assistants. The attendance 
at this School averages about 150 scholars. 

Primary No. 2, is located on the corner of Alice and Fifth 
streets, fronting on Fifth street, and opposite to Harrison 
Square. The Principal is Mary Alexander ; the Assistants are 
Lizzie Betanure and Emily E, Jayne. There have been in or- 
dinary attendance at this School, during the past term, about 
1 30 scholai-s. 

The new school building at the Point has not been occupied. 
A one-story two room building has for a considerable period 
been in use. Miss Annie E. Lewis is Principal, and Susie A. 
Mowry, Assistant. The attendance has fluctuated greatly, the 
averasre beinjj about one hundred. The new buildino^ is to be 
occupied from the beginning of the present year, and a Grammar 
School Class is to be started. 

The financial management of the Board of Education has 
been prudent, and the School Department does not find itself in 
that embarrassed condition into which the other departments of 
our city government have been thrown. 

STREETS AND STREET IMPROVEMENTS. 

Ever since the incorporation of the city, the streets in the 
southeastern portion, included between Market and Fourteenth 
streets and the Creek, liave been legally established, and with 
but a few exceptions, open for public travel. These streets are 
eighty feet in widtli, with the exception of Broadway, which is 
110 feet wide. The blocks are 200x300 feet in size. By or- 
dinances of the City Council, the width of sidewalks has been 
estal)lished at fourteen feet, except on Broadway, where the 
sidewalks are twenty feet wide. West of Market street they 
are to be eighteen feet wide. 

By an Act of the Legishiture, approved April 25th, 1863, the 
city charter was so amended as to authorize the City Council to 
adopt a general plan or system of streets, for that portion of the 
city not included between Market and Fourteenth streets. 



78 OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 



After the establishmejit of such general plan or system, im- 
provements erected upon the line of a proposed street cannot be 
included in any assessment for damages. November 16th, 1868, 
the Council passed an ordinance, adopting a general system of 
streets, and the map showing the chosen plan is prefaced to this 
work, which renders unnecessary any description, the map being 
its own best explanation. Applications for opening any of these 
streets must be made to the Council in writing, designating the 
particular street to be opened, and the residences of the appli- 
cants. If the Council should determine that the street should 
be opened, the Marshal shall be directed to notify the owners or 
occupants of the land embraced within the lines of such street, 
to appear before the Council at a given time, and state any ob- 
jections they may have to the opening of the street. After their 
appearance, and the announcement of their claims for damag- 
ino- if any there be, the Council shall fix a time for assessing 
damages. For this purpose, the Council has very nearly the 
same power as a Court ; can compel the attendance of witnesses, 
administer oaths, etc. Parties who feel themselves aggrieved by 
the action of the Council can appeal to the County Court, The 
Council has no authority under any existing law to pay dam- 
ao-es from the City Treasury. If the property holders petition- 
in o- for the opening of a sLreet, should raise an amount sufficient 
to pay the final damages awarded, the opening of a street can 
be enforced, not otherwise. 

Street improvements are ordered and made in pursuance of 
an Act, approved April 4th, 1864. The Act is long, elaborate, 
and complete. The Council is authorized to order the improve- 
ment of any street, lane or alley within the limits of the city. 

Property holders file with tlie Council a petition designating 
the improvement desired. Should the Council see fit, they pass 
a resolution declaring their intention to order the work peti- 
tioned for, which resolution must be published for the period of 
ten days. Prior to the expiration of that time, the owners of 
more than one-half the frontage upon the street proposed to be 
improved, may file their protest with the City Clerk, and such 



OAKLAND DIEECTORY, 



79 



protest is a bur to all further proceedings tor the i)criod of six 
months. Should no such protest be tiled, the Council adver- 
tises for bids for doing the work, in accordance with such speci- 
fications as they may adopt, and the contraet must be awarded 
to the lowest responsible bidder. Notice of the award must 
be published for the period of five days. "Within this period, 
the owners of property fronting upon the street to be improved 
ma3% by agreement among themselves, do the work ordered, 
which must be at the price charged by the lowest bidder. 
AVhen a contract has been completed to the satisfaction of the 
City Engineer and the City Marshal, a warrant is issued to the 
contractor, authorizing him to collect from the property holders 
the amounts due from them for their proportion of the improve- 
ments. 

An official grade has been adopted for the portion of the city 
within Market and Fourteenth streets, and for several streets in 
the western part of the city. According to this grade, most of 
the blocks are to be above the level of the streets, and there is 
to be but a small amount of filling in. The official grade was 
adopted by the Council, by ordinance, December 21st, 1867. 

The almost perfect natural grade of Oakland has rendered 
the improvement of her streets a matter easy of accomplish- 
ment. There are no sand hills to be dug away, and no rocky 
cliffs to be undermined and removed. The only method as yet 
adopted for making the streets more convenient for horses and 
vehicles is that of macadamizing them. At a distance of five 
miles from the city are inexhaustible quantities of rock suitable 
for the i)urpose. After being exposed to the winter rains and 
becoming packed and firm, it in many cases equals a pavement 
of asphaltuMi. If pro}>er care were to be taken to keep the 
macadamized streets in a state of cleanliness and repair, they 
would not be inferior to the cobble stone pavements of most 
American cities. The first experiment in inipruving the streets 
of Oakland was in macadamizing the section of Broadway be- 
tween Fourth and Tenth streets, the contract for this work 
being let December 2d, 1804. The 'price jter square foot then 



80 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 



charged was eight and one-half cents. Since that time prices 
have fluctuated between four and one-half cents per square foot 
and six and one-half cents. The streets are being improved 
very rapidly, and the table which we present below will be in- 
complete shortly after the appearance of this Directory, street 
contracts being awarded almost weekly. "We present the fol- 
lowing list, showing the streets macadamized, their length, and 
cost :

teenth street

28,829 


$107,035 96 



Although the figures thus presented appear large, there can 
be no question but that the value of property has been in- 
creased by street improvements far beyond the amount ex- 
pended in creating them. Whenever a railway or tramroad 
may be constructed to the foot hills, the cost of street improve- 
ments should be materially diminished. Except upon Broad- 
way, too little attention has been given to making convenient 
and substantial sidewalks. These are scarcely less important 
than the streets themselves ; and it is to be hoped that in future 
improvements this fact will" be properh- recognized.

THE OAKLAND WATER FKOXT AXD THE WESTEKN I'ACIFIC KAIL- 

EOAD TEKMIXL'S. 



The Oakland Water Front promises to he the great cause for 
the future commercial pros})erity of our city. Its importance 
Avas foreseen tifteen years ago, and the person who then ob- 
tained possession of it has clung to it with pertinacity, defended 
his title in every Court, and linally ended litigation only by 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 85 



compromise. In tlie summer of tlie year ISfiT, the City Council 
took steps toward viironuisly prosecutiuii; the suits l>etween II. 
W. Carpentier and tlie City, tor the possession of the Water 
Front property. John B. Felton was chosen as special counsel 
on our behalf, with a contingent fee of fifteen per cent of the 
property he inight save to the city. He entered upon his task 
promptly and with energy. The A\^estern Pacific Eailroad 
Comjiany had not then located its extreme western terminus, 
and each town bordering upon the Bay of San Francisco ex- 
pected the coveted prize. Various were the inducements offered, 
and innumeral)le were the schemes devised for influencing the 
choice of the Company. The members of the City Council and 
their Attorney, felt that Oakland had one offering which would 
turn the scale in her favor, if it could but be made available. 
The entire water water front had been conveyed to the city, and 
the validity of the conveyance of the proi)erty by the city to 
one of its iidiabitants was the only matter at issue. If i)ersistent 
litigation .should be continued, the golden opportunities would 
pass unimproved. A compromise was talked of If the Wes- 
tern Pacific Pailroad Company could be granted a large portion 
of the property, it would Avitliuut doubt locate its terminus in 
this city, for there were numerous advantages tluit could not be 
disregarded, if a clear title could be given to the land upon 
which its improvements would be erected. Having the indorse- 
ment of the people, tlie City Council nuide ai.plication to the 
Legislature, and in due time a short Act was passed em])ower- 
ing the Council to settle the controversies of the city as it might 
deem best. Mr. Carpentier and the members (.f the City Coun- 
cil then agreed upon the terms of a comj^romise, which were 
briefly to the effect that Mr. Carpentier Avould sun-ender his 
title to one-half the property, provided the city would convey 
the remaining half to the liailroad Comi)any, tbr terminal pur- 
poses. Upon this i)rinciple the terms of a compromise were 
elaborated and ]nit into a tangible form. The proper negotia- 
tions were had with the managing officers of the Pwailroad 
Company, and satisfactory assurances were obtained. 



86 OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 

On the evening of April 1st, 1868, the City Council passed 
the following ordinance, which is in a measure self-explanatory : 

An Ordinance for the Settlement of Controversies and Disputes 
Concerning) the Water JFront of the Ciiij of OaJdand, the 
FroMchisGS thereof and other matters pertaining thereto : 

The Council of the City of Oakland do ordain as follows : 

« 

Section 1. — The claims, demands, controversies, disputes, 
litigations, and causes of action, heretofore existing between the 
City of Oakland on the one part, and Horace AV'. Carpentier 
and his assigns of the other part, relating to the force, validity, 
and effect of a certain ordinance passed by the Board of Trus- 
tees of the Town of Oakland, on the ISth day of May, a. d, 
1852, and enrolled May 2Tth, 1$52, signed by A. Marier, President 
of the Board of Trustees, and F. K. Shattuck, Clerk of said 
Board, entitled " An Ordinance for the disposal of the AVater 
Front belonging to the Town of Oakland, and to provide for the 
construction of wharves," wherein and whereby, for the consider- 
ation therein named, the Water Front of said town, that is to 
say, all tlie lands lying within the limits of the said Town of 
Oakland, between high tide and ship's channel, as described in 
the Act of the Legislature for tlie incorporation of said town, 
passed May 4tli, 1852, together with all tlic right, title and inr 
terest of said town therein, together witli all the privileges, 
rights and franchises therein mentioned, were sold, granted and 
released to Horace W. Carpentier and ]iis assigns. 

And also in relation to the validity, force and effect of a cer- 
tain conveyance executed and delivered to the said Carpentier, 
of the said Water Front, dated May 31st, 1852, by the said A. 
Marier, President of the said Board of Trustees, under and in 
pursuance of said ordinances. 

And also in relation to the force, validity and effect of a cer- 
tain other ordinance passed by the Board of Trustees on the 
OOtli dav of T-)eceml>er, a. n. 1852, entitled " An Ordinance to 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY, 



approve the wliart' at the foot of Main street, and to extend the 
time for constructing the otlier wliarves,"' which said ordinance 
was enrolled January 1st, 1853, and feigned by the President and

In accordance with tlie terms of the compromise, as provided 
by Mr. Carpentier, the following deed had been executed : 

" This Indenture, made the 31st day of March, 1808, between 
Horace W. Carpentier, party of the first part, and the Oakland 
Water Front Company, party of the second part, witnesseth, 
tliat the said party of the first, in consideration of the sum of 
five dollars, to him paid by the said party of the 'second part, 
the receipt whereof is hereby acknowled(2;ed, hereby gives, 
grants, sells and conveys to the said party of the second part, 
its successors and assigns, the following descriljed premises, to 
wit : all of the Water Front of the City of Oakland, that is to 
say, all the lands, and the lands covered with Avater, lying within 
the limits of said city, between high tide and ship channel, be- 
ing the water front lands within the boundaries described and 
granted in, and defined by the Act entitled. An Act to incor- 
porate the Town of Oakland, and to provide for the construc- 
tion of wharves thereat. Approved May 4th, 1552 ; and the 
Act entitled an Act to incorporate the City of Oakland, passed

tolls, wharfage and dockage thereon and therefrom, and all 
lands, rights, privileges and franchises of every kind and nature, 
which have been heretofore acquired by the party of the first 
part from the Town of Oakland and the City of Oakland, or 
either of them, and all rights to the above mentioned land, 
franchises and privileges which he may hereafter acquire from 
the said City of Oakland, excepting therefrom, liowever, so 
much of the said water front as lies between the middle of 
Washington street and the middle of Franklin street, and ex- 
tending southerly to a line parallel to front street, and two hun- 
dred feet southerly from the present wharf, according to the 
map of the City of Oakland, with the rights of wharfage, dock- 
age and tolls thereon, to have and to hold the aforesaid and 
aforegranted j^remises, to the said party of the second part, its 
successors and assigns, to their use and behoof forever. 

" In witness whereof, the said party of the first part has here- 
unto set his hand and seal the day and year aforesaid. 

* " II. W. CAEPEXTIER." 



The portion of the water front reserved was to be deeded to 
the city for the public use, and was a concession which had been 
demanded and insisted upon as essential, to prevent the success 
of a complete monopoly of ferry privileges. Unfortunately the 
Council had previously granted the use of this identical prop- 
erty to the San Francisco and Oakland Railroad Company, but 
the privilege had never been made available, and the ordinance 
was deemed to be in violation of tlie citv charter, and conse- 
quently of no force or effect. As quickly as a compromise had 
been agreed upon, the Company endeavored to take possession 
of this land, and legal proceedings were forthwith undertaken, 
which, up to the present time, do not appear to be near a ter- 
mination. 

The Water Front Company is essentially a brancli of the 
Western Pacific Railroad Company. It was incorporated in 
April, 1808. The capital stock of the Company is §5,000,000, 
divided into $50,000 shares. The Trustees are — E. R. Carpen- 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 91 

tier, Lloyd Tevis, II. AV. Carpentier, John B, Felton, Leland 
Stanford, and Samuel Mcrritt. The Officers of the Company 
arc : President, 11. W. Carpentier ; Yice-President, Samuel 
Merritt : Secretary, Lloyd Tevis ; Treasurer, Leland Stanford. 

• 

The oltjects for which the Company is formed are stated in 
the certificate of incorporation, to be, to " build, construct, ac- 
quire, own, hold, manage, use and control wharves, docks, 
basins, dry docks, piers and warehouses, in the City of Oakland, 
and State of California, or elsewhere, and to lease, or sell, con- 
vey, or otherwise dispose of the same ; to borrow and lend 
money : to eni^ajje and carry on the business of commerce, 
foreii^n and domestic ; to purchase, acquire, manage, hold, con- 
trol, hy})othecate, mortgage, encumber, lease, sell, convey, or 
otherwise dispose of the AVater Front of said city, and any tide, 
Kubmerired and overflowed or other lands in the Citv of Oakland 
or elsewhere, t«;)gether with the rights, privileges and franchises 
connected therewith or appurtenant thereto ; and also, an}' 
other property, real, personal or mixed, clioses in action, rights, 
privileges and franchises." 

The contract referred to above as existing between the " Oak- 
land Water Front Company, the Western Pacific Pailroad Com- 
pany, and other parties," was entered into April 1st, 1868, by 
the following named parties : The "Western Pacific Ilailroad, by 
its officers, as first party ; Leland Stanford, as second party, and 
the Oakland Water Front Company, as third party ; and speci- 
fies that the first party agrees to construct and complete a railroad 
connecti<»n with the Central line, to terminate upon certain 
lands to be selected from the Water Front Company's property ; 
also to erect buildings and structures for passenger and freight 
depots, and to expend within a specified time, upon said lands, 
at least $5UO,00(>, gold coin, not including the i)urchase of any 
existing improvements. 

Tlie contract is not a matter of public record, otherwise it 
would in this connection l»c published.

The water front property lias been carefully surveyed, under 
the supervision of Calvin Brown, and a most complete and 
elaborate map has been prepared. The railroad reservation an- 
nounced is shown upon the map accompanying this volume. 
The intention of the Water Front Company and of the Western 
Pacific Railroad Company, at the date of this M-ritinc;, is not 
fully announced. Work upon the portion of the road between 
this city and Stockton, hj way of Livermore Pass, is progress- 
ing with rapidity, and work is to be commenced in this city 
almost immediately. It is, indeed, probal)le that when this 
meets the eye of the reader, hundreds of laborers will be at 
work in Oakland and its immediate vicinity, npon tlie improve- 
ments projected by the Water Front Company and the Western 
Pacific Railroad Company, 

REAL ESTATE GROWTH OF THE CITY. 

During the past two years the value of Oakland real estate 
has increased fully 200 per cent., and is now steadily and 
rapidly advancing. It is in exceptional cases only that property 
commands a high price on account of its prospective value. 
Within the limits of the city, the value of property is founded 
upon the extent of the income that might be derived from it, if 
improved. There has been inflation in regard to outside lands, 
which have in numerous cases been sold at prices far in excess of 
their intrinsic value. Such transactions have not been numer- 
ous, but they have in a measure injured the legitimate operators 
in real estate. Mr. E. C. Sessions, one of the leading real estate 
dealers and owners in Oakland, commenced the publication of 
The Real Estate Gazette^ November Ttli, 186S. The initial 
number contained a table showing real estate transactions in 
Oakland, Brooklyn and Alameda Townships for the two years 
ending November 1st, 1868. This being the transition period, 
during which Oakland changed from the condition of a quiet 
village to that of a promising city, we deem it proper to re- 
reproduce that table, and thus preserve it in a more permanent 
form :

94 OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 

The same authority, commenting upon the above tabular re- 
view, states that " Xo reference lias been had to Broadway 
property. It is rarely offered for sale, and but few transfers 
have been made during the last year, most of these including 
improvements, rendering it diflTicult in many cases to arrive at 
an accurate valuation of the land. We consider $175 to $200 
per front foot a fair quotation for ])roperty on the west side of 
Broadway, between Fourteenth street and the railroad. Upon 
the east side, within same limits, $150 ; below the railroad, $100 
to $150 per front foot. Sales can be readily effected at these 
fio;ures. 

" From reference to the above review, several things are ap- 
parent. First, an advance in the value of property in Oakland 
and vicinity 6f nearly 200 per cent, in two years. Second, the 
improvements alaeady made, as well as the regularity of tJiis 
advance, are evidence of its legitimacy. Sales made within the 
last month, and those l>eing daily consummated, with the as- 
surance we now have of other and extensive improvements to 
be made in the spring, warrant a reasonable exj)ectation of fur- 
ther advance." 

The growth of Oakland and Alameda and the adjacent coun- 
try, in population and wealth, may be learned i^i-om the follow- 
ing tables, showing the receipts of the two Eailroad' Companies

In the year 1858, the total vote of Oakland Township was 
406 ; at the late Presidential election it was 1,273. 

The growth of the city has been to the north, but the greater 
part of the improvements have been made on the portion 
originally covered by oaks, the light, sandy soil being pleasanter 
for the ordinary purposes of a dwelling place, and by many 
being deemed healthier.

EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS. 



For years past, the educational institutions located in this 
city have occupied a leading position in California, and have 
been attended by students from all parts of the Pacific Coast, 
Mexico, and the Sandwich Islands. We append a few of the 



leading facts concerning each. 



THE COLLEGE SCHOOL, COLLEGE OF CALIFORNIA, AND UNIVEKSITY 

OF CALIFORNIA. 



These three institutions are mentioned in connection with 
each other, because the College of California grew from the 
College School, and the State University is the full develop- 
ment of the College of California. Each institution marks an 
era in the progress of the cause of education in the State. 

A correspondence was commenced among some of those who 
subsequently became Trustees, on the possibility of founding a 
college in California, as early as the year 1849. Plans were 
laid at that time, but there was very little progress until the 
spring of 1853. At that time the Rev. Henry Durant arrived, 
and a plan for opening a College School was matured at a meet- 
ing of the Presbytery of San Francisco and Congregational As- 
sociation of California. A building which stood on the north- 
east corner of Broadway and Fifth streets was rented, and 
school was opened by Mr. Durant. At first the school was ex- 
ceedingly small, and for several years its growth was slow. 



I 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY, 99 

Among tlie half-dozen scholars in attendance was the writer of 
these pages. Funds were raised by subscription, and the four 
squares now occupied by the College and College School were 
purchased. At this early day, tlie services rendered by the Rev. 
S. B. Bell, the Pastor of the Presbyterian Church, were of in- 
calculable importanc, and but for him Mr. Durant would have 
been unable to have continued in -the enterprise upon which he 
had embarked. 

The College of California was incorporated in April, 1855. 
The Trustees entered upon their work with much energy, and 
frequently gave from their private funds for the support of the 
institution. In 1856, the Pev. Horace Bushnell was elected 
President. While having the matter under consideration, he 
gave a large portion of his time to a careful examination of the 
country around the Bay of San Francisco, and the site finally 
chosen was in accordance with his preference. It may, there- 
fore, be stated that the site for the University building, at 
Berkeley, is the best that can be found anywhere in close prox- 
imity to San Francisco, for the opinion of such a man as Dr. 
Bushnell is of more value than that of any number of com- 
missioners acting under the authority of a legislature, and ex- 
posed to the numberless improper influences which would beset 
them. 

The first Freshman Class was admitted in the summer of 
1800. A small college building was erected, and a college 
faculty had been chosen. To meet the increased expenses re- 
newed exertions had been made and sufficient funds were ob- 
tained. In March, 1862, the Rev. S. II. Willey was elected Vice- 
President of the College. A larger building was erected, and a 
fund was raised for the endowment of the Presidency. Efforts 
were made to secure the services of some suitable person from 
the East, to act as President, but without success, and until the 
present time, Mr. Willey, as Vice-President, has administered 
the affairs of the Collecre. 

The first class admitted graduated in June, 1864, and classes 
liave graduated in course every year since.

OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 



In 1865, the College Faculty invited a general meeting of the 
College Alumni in the State, to be held in connection with the 
commencement occasion of that year. In response to the in- 
vitation, there was a large attendance on the part of the clas- 
sically educated men of the State, and the meeting was so agi"ee- 
able, and so abounded in literary festivities, tliat a permanent 
association, the Associated Alumni of the Pacific Coast, was 
organized. The Alumni have since held their annual meetings 
with regularity, and have become exceedingly popular. 

The College Faculty is composed as follows : 

Yice-President (Acting President,) 

Rev. S. H. Willey. 

Professor of Mental and Moral Science, and Greek, 

IIev. IIenky D leant. 

Professor of Latin, 

Kev. Martin Kellogg. 

Professor of Natural Sciences, 

WiLLAKD B. KiSLXG. 

Professor of Belles Letters, 

Pev. I. H. Brayton. 

Tutor in German and Mathematics, 

Henry Hillebrand. 

Tutor in French, 

Chas. L. Des Pochers. 



The next commencement of the College will probably be the 
last, as at that tims the Rage its of the University will be ready 
to assume charge of it, and incorporate it into a department of 
the University, as provided by law. The College Trustees, in 
1867, voted unanimously, that if the State would undertake the 
establishment of a University of the first rank, the College of 
California would turn over its assets to the newly created Uni- 
versity, and surrender its corporate existence if a department of 
Letters should be created. The influence of the Trustees and of 
their friends secured the passage by the Legislature, of an Act 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 101 



to create and organize the University of California. Tlie mis- 
sion of tlie College is accomplished, a University which will 
be complete in all its departments, havingbeen established. 



THE COLLEGE SCHOOL. 



As Stated above, the Rev. Henry Durant was Principal of 
the College School from 1853 to 1860. From 1860 until the 
present time, the Rev. I. II. Brayton has been Principal of the 
School, having ;for eight years enjoyed the assistance of F. M. 
Campbell, M. A., in conducting the School, and having been as- 
sisted during the last year by the Rev. E. G. Beckwith. 

In 1865, the Trustees of the College . ceased to retain pro- 
prietary control of the College School, though continuing to ex- 
ercise supervisory oversight, and stipulating that the original 
purposes in its establishment should be adhered to. 

The Institution employs fifteen Professors and Teachers, and 
has an attendance of about 250 pupils. It is acknowledged the 
largest Institution of its class upon this coast. Its extensive, 
improved grounds, and numerous, large and fine Iniildings, Avill 
amplj' repay a visit. 

As the founders of the College School had in mind the lead- 
ing purpose of establishing a college, it led to a complete orga- 
ization and a fuller provision than is customary in academies 
where colleges are already in existence. Hence the College 
School, as now distinct from the College of California, lias Is 
ample provisions as many colleges. Its property is estimated at 
one hundred thousand dollars. There are three well organized 
Departments ; the Classical or Preparatory, the Higher English, 
and the Junior, the latter being divided into two grades, of 
which the lowest is intended for very young pupils, who are 
separated from the older students both in the school-rooms and 
on the play grounds. The buildings are spacious, commodious, 
well furnished, and comfortable. Accommodations are pro- 
vided for two hundred boarding pupils.

FEMALE COLLEGE OF THE PACIFIC. 



This institution owes its existence to the efforts of the Rev. 
E. B. Walsworth, whose personal exertions first secured the 
means of establishing it. During the first years of the institu- 
tion, the Rev. S. S. Harmon and wife had the immediate con- 
trol, and its success and present reputation is in no small degree 
due to their skill as teachers, and to the efiiciency with which 
they performed the varied duties which devolved upon them. 
In April, 1864, the " Pacific Female College " was incorporated 
under the general laws of the State. A department had been 
opened June 15th, 1863, and the existence of the College, pro- 
perly dates from that time. The first Board of Trustees con- 
sisted of the following persons : 

Louis McLane, J. G. Kellogg, R. B. Woodward, A. H. Hous- 
ton, S. E. Alden, B. C. Horn, Mark Brumagim, J. P. Robinson, 
E. B. Walsworth, W. R. Garrison, William Xorris, A. B. For- 
bes, Samuel B. McKee, Geo. W. Mowe, Hon. F. F. Low, R. W. 
Kirkham, C. Palmer, Erwin Davis, D. D. Colton, M. R. 
Roberts. 

The College has steadily grown in numbers and importance, 
and several classes have graduated, having completed the pre- 
scribed course of study. There is now an attendance slightly 
in excess of one hundred scholars, and fourteen teachers are en- 
gaged at the Institution. The Rev. E. B. Walsworth is at the 
head of the Institution. 

By the terms of the Charter by which this Institution is 
ranked among the Colleges of the State, it possesses the full 
right of conferring all the customary degrees, both Academic 
and Honorary, The degrees conferred are : 

A. E. — The degree of " Artium Excelsior" will be conferred 
on those members of the Institution who have completed the 
regular course.

S. B. — The student wlio lias satisfactorily pursued all the pre- 
scribed course, except the Ancient and Modern Languages, and 
whose correct deportment is certified to by the Faculty, shall be 
entitled to the degree of " Baccalaureate ot Science." 

All successful candidates for either of the above degrees will 
receive a diploma of the same grade, with that which confers a 
a like dej^ree in other Colleges. 

Oakland Seminary, — This Institution was commenced in 
the City of Oakland on the 8th of November, 1858, by Mrs. G. 
M . Blake, its present Principal . Mrs. Blake on that day com- 
menced in a private parlor on Broadway and Sixth streets, with 
a class of four 'young ladies. On the 1st day of April, 1859, 
the school was so much increased as to requise a larger room and 
was removed to the corner of Broadway and Eighth streets, now 
occupied by a building owned by Dr. Sanford. On the 1st day 
of March, 1860, it was again removed to the corner of Fifth and 
Jackson streets, to the house of J. Rosss Browne, where it re- 
mained nearly four years . A new building was commenced in 
June, 1863, and completed on the 2-lth day of October of the 
same year, at which time the school was again removed to the 
spot where it now stands, and was there permanently established. 
There are three separate departments in the school — Collegiate, 
Intermediate and Primary. The School affords the advantages 
of a thorough English course, the ancient and modern languages, 
music (vocal and instrumental), and all the ornamental branches. 
Connected with the School, is a Board of visitoi-s, composed of 
the following: srentlemen : 



J^ o" 



Rev. Samuel II. Willey, Hon. Sherman Day, Rev. Ben- 
jamin Ackerly, Hon. O. L. Shafter, Rev. Henry Durant, Dr.

ployed seven teachers, and there are 60 boarders, the limited 
number. The School is the private property of the Eev. David 
McClure, who is the Principal . Family and military discipline 
are combined, and the School is unlike anv other in the State. 
The entire School forms one military company, known as the 
"Oakland Academy Cadets," which is organized under the 
State Law, and is furnished with arms . 

Roman Catholic Convent. — In the summer of 1868, the

cept their present positions . The course of study is extensive, 
and all the branches usually taught in female seminaries or aca- 
demies are there to be learned. The Rev . Father King is the 
founder of the Institution, the means for building it having been 
raised by his personal exertions ,

Industrial Extsrprises — Busin*ess. — Within the limits of 
Oakland, Alameda and Brooklyn Townships, there are three 
grist mills, two railroad machine shops, one pottery, two tanner- 
ies, three planing mills, and one cotton factory. 

The Oakland Cotton Mills are reararded as one of the leadincr 
enterprises in the State. The company was incorporated August 
25th, 18G5, with a capital stock of $100,000. The officers were 
as follows : President, Wm. II. Rector ; Secretary, L. J, Rec- 
tor ; Trustees, Volney Rector, B. F. Rector, and L. J. Rector. 
January 1st, 18G8, the capital stock was increased to $200,000, 
and the company nuule arrangements for the manufacture of flax 
and jute into grain bags. The machinery for this purpose will 



110 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 



be in operation by March 1st, of the current year (1869). The 
present officers of the company now are as follows : 

President, Leopold Cohn ; Secretary, L. J. Eector ; Trustees, 
F. P. Salomen, B. F. Rector, Leojjold Cohn. 

There are forty persons employed at the mills, most of them 
being females, and 1300 yards of shirting are manufactured daily. 
In the way of this, as in every other similar enterprise, there have 
been numerous obstacles, but most of them are overcome and suc- 
cess seems assured. 

The San Antonio Tannery was established in 1865, by "Wilcox 
& Pohrs, the present owners. The business of the tannery 
amounts to about S2,000 per month, this being the value of the 
leather disposed of. The market for California leather, until a 
comparatively late date, has not been inviting. The merits of 
the leather tanned in this State have at last become known, and 
the people will not much longer be obliged to send to the East 
hides raised in California, and receive them back in the form of 
leather, thus utterly losing the amount paid as freight. 

AVithin the past few months Wm. AVatts has started a tan- 
nery on the borders of the Bay of San Francisco, about one and 
a half miles from the limits of this city. The tannery is of large 
capacity, but the enterj)rise being in its infancy, the present 
amount of business would not be a fair criterion by which to 
judge of the business it will transact. 

The Oakland Flouring Mills were built by Blanchard & Plum- 
mer, in 1861. The present owners are Pendleton & Co. The 
mill are located at the junction of the Telegraj)h and San Pablo 
roads, in this city. They contain three run of stones, and if 
worked to their fullest capacity 312 barrels of flour could be 
manufactured each 21: hours. The mills are in operation the 
greater part of the year, and the business appears to be in a con- 
dition highly satisfactory. 

The Venus Mills, located on 3d street, between Broadway 
and Washington, were established in November, 1867, by "W. 



.1 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. Ill 

Starr, and are at present owned by Starr tfe Miles. The mills 
contain two run of stones, and can produce 100 barrels of flour 
in 24 working hours. 

The Clinton Mills, located in the town of Clinton, were the 
first established in the northern portion of the county, and their 
present capacity is greater than that of any other similar estab- 
lishwent in the county. 

The Pioneer Planing Mills were established by D. G. Barnes, 
in the spring of year 1865, and at that time afforded employ- 
ment to four men. The mills are now owned by Blethen & 
Terry, Thirty men are constantly engaged there, and imtil a 
very recent date, all the mill work required in the city was done 
at the Pioneer Mills. Within the past few months an extensive 
addition has been made, and the capacity of the mills further 
increased. 

The Oakland Planing Mills are located on the corner of 
Washinffton and First streets, and owned bv Burnham Sz Standi- 
ford. These mills are not in full operation, the building having 
lately been completed, and all the required machinery not yet 
being put in position. The building is one of the most substan- 
tial in the State, and all improvements connected with the mills 
are of the most durable nature. 

At the Oakland Point, Philips &: Tew have, during the past 
summer, established planing mills near the lumber yard of P. 
S. Page ife Co., and are doing a prosperous business. 

Oakland Bank of Savings. — This is the first regular bank 
ever established in Oakland. Its certificate of incorporation 
was executed August 13th, 1867, and signed by A. C. Henry, 
Ed. M. Hall, Samuel Merritt, P. S. Wilcox, AY. W. Crane, Jr, 
and Joseph Becht. The ofticers first elected were as follows : 

President, A. C. Henry ; Cashier, E. M. Hall ; Board of Di- 
rectors, E. M. Hall, Samuel Merritt, A. C, Henry, P. S. AVillcox, 
"NV. W. Crane, Jr. ; Finance Committee, E. M. Hall, A. C. Henr}-, 
P. S. AV^illcox ; Auditing Conmiittee, Samuel Merritt, Henry C. 
Lee, E. C. Sessions. 



112 OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 

The capital stock of the bank is $150,000, divided into fifteen 
hundred shares of one hundred dollars each. 

Oakland Gas-Light Company. — The Oakland Gas-Light 
Company was incorporated in 1866, and the first street lamps in 
the city were lighted in January, 1867. The works of the Com- 
pany are located on the corner of Washington and First streets ; 
six retorts are in use, eight miles of pipe are laid through the 
various streets of the city, and additions are continuously being 
made . Eighty street lamps are in use. The following are the 
oiRcers of the Company : 

President, H . H . Haight ; Vice-President, Jos. G. Eastland ; 
Secretary, Jas. Freeborn ; Superintendent, Van Leer Eastland . 

December 8th, 1865, the City Council passed an ordinance, 
granting to W , W . Beggs, J . G . Eastland and others, the right 
to lay down pipes and erect gas works in the city. The present 
Company is the legal successor to these individuals, and exer- 
cises the rights and privileges originally conveyed to them. The 
contract under which the street lamps are erected and main- 
tained was ordered by the Council, July 13th, 1868, It 
stipulates that for the period of ten years, from July 1st, 1868, 
the gas lamps to be used in the streets of Oakland shall be 
erected and maintained by the Oakland Gas-Light Company. 
For the first five years, the Company shall receive 22^ cts. per 
night per lamp, until the number may exceed 250, when the 
price shall be 20 cts. per night for each lamp used. At the ex- 
piration of five years, tlie price is to be fixed by a commission 
of three persons, one of them to be named by the Company, 
one by the City Council, and the third to be elected by the two 
thus chosen. The amount of gas consumed is not large for a 
city having the population of Oakland . 

The Oakland Hailkoad Company. — The certificate of in- 
corporation of this Company was filed in the office of the Sec- 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 113 

retary of State, in December, 1864. As set forth in tlie certi- 
ficate, the object of tlie Company is to build and maintain a 
horse-railroad from the foot of Broadway, in this city, to the 
University grounds. The road is to be five miles in length. 
The capital stock of the Company is fixed at $50,000, divided 
into five hundred shares of $100 each. The aftairs of the cor- 
poration are managed by a Board of seven Directors. The 
original incorporators were : 

F. Delger, E. B. Walsworth, Israel W, Knox, A, Hersey, 
S. E. Alden, I. H. Brayton, F. E. Weston, F. K. Shattuck, 
B. F. Ferris, S. H. Willey, Geo. Goss, Geo. II. Fogg. 

The ofticers of the Company are : 

President, F. E. Weston; Vice-President, Joseph Emery; 
Treasurer, B. F. Ferris; Secretary, Geo . II. Fogg; Directors, 
F. E. Weston, A.J. Gladding, H. Durant, J. Emery, B. F. 
Ferris, Geo. II. Fogg, andS. E. Alden. 

The Company obtained its franchise from the Legislature, 
May 3d, 1860. This special Act granted to the Company the 
right to lay a track from Broadway Wharf to the University 
Grounds, the track within the city limits to be a double one, 
should the Company so desire. Along the Telegrajih road, 
only a single track can be lajd . The fare for a single passenger 
is not to exceed ten cents, and sixteen tickets must be sold for 
one dollar. The franchise is to last thirty years. At the ex- 
piration of ten years, the rates of fare are to be again fixed by 
the Legislature. The speed shall not exceed eight miles an 
hour. Long after the passage of this Act, the Company 
showed scarcely any signs of vitality . Application was made 
to the Legislature of 1868, and the time for com])leting the road 
was extended, so that, under the law, one track must be laid 
within the limits of the city three years and six months from 
the date of the passage of the first Act, and the whole road 
must be completed within five years from that time, or in 1871. 
Orders have been sent East for iron, and it is now announced as 



114 OAKLAND DIKECTORY. 

tlie policy of the Company to carry forward its work with energy 
and vigor . The country tlirough which it is to pass is thickly 
settled . There are numerous homestead tracts, which it is be- 
lieved would be speedily improved if there were some means of 
cheap and pleasant communication with the city, and the pro- 
spects of the Company appear to be excellent . 

OAKLAifD Real Estate Associates. — This bodv was incor- 
ported December 17th, 1867, with a capital stock of $100,000. 
The object of the Corporation is to purchase and sell improved 
and uni^nproved real estate . The officers are as follows : 

Henry C . Lee, President ; John I . Spear, Jr . , Vice-Presi- 
dent ; Wm . K . Flint, Secretary ; E . C . Sessions, General 
Business Agent. 

Directm's: Henry C. Lee, John I. Spear, Jr., G. W. Armes, ' 
W. K. Flint, ^Y. H. Glascock, E. C. Sessions, C. W. 
Kellogg . 

Offices, Broadway, Oakland, and 507 California street, San 
Francisco . 

Newspapers. — In the City of Oakland are published two 
daily morning papers, the Oakland JS'ews and the Oakland 
Transcnpt. The Oakland News was started by its present pro- 
prietor, William Gagan, September 9th, 1863, when the publi- 
cation of a small weekly sheet was commenced. The paper has 
grown with the place, and the Oakland JSfews Printing House 
is an establishment of considerable extent and importance. A 
steam-power press is in use, and about twenty men are employed 
in the various departments. The business is growing from 
jnonth to month, and the circulation of the paper, already large, 
is rapidly increasing. The Oakland T/'ansc/'ij?t was, started in 
April, 1868, by H. Coffin, as an evening paper. In a few 
months the paper was purchased by O. P . Truesdell, and has 
been conducted by him up to the present time. Like the News, 
it evidently receives it» proper proportion of the patronage of 



OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 115 

the people of Oakland. In years past, numerous papers have 
been started and suspended for tlie want of patronage. Those 
now publislied are apparently permanent and estal)lished . 

Botanical Gardens. — Oakland not only takes precedence as 
the seat of learning, but she also has the largest Botanical col- 
lection of native and foreign trees, shrubs, plants and bulbous 
roots on the Pacific Coast, which tlie enterprise of one of our 
nurserymen could get together during the last nine years. Here 
may be seen the conifera of our State, and the many beautiful 
and curious plants indigenous to California, also, an extensive 
collection of Australian and New Zealand trees and shrubs, 
which flower during our winter, and almost make us forget the 
season. Mexico, Chili and Peru, the West Indies and the 
world in general lias contributed to give us such a collection of 
plants as is seldom seen growing together outside of California, 
Visitors from other States will here have an opportunity to see 
our trees and plants without going all over the Stale. Belle View 
Nursery is situated on the Telegraph road, and is open to the 
public free of charge, and where Mr. Nolan, the proprietor, will 
always be pleased to give any information he may possess on the 
subject.

CHURCHES. 



9 

First Pkesbyterian Chukch. — This is the Pioneer Church 
of Oakland. The first Poster, the Kev. S. B. Bell, commenced 
services in Oakland early in 1853 or in the winter of 1852, the 
Public School House being used as a place of worship. The 
early history of this chiu'ch is exceedingly interesting. Its 
Pastor and the'few members had many and severe obstacles to

SAN FRANCISCO.

interest for the same as may be agreed upon. 

To loan its Capital, Deposits, and Trust Funds, at current rates of interest, on Real Estate, on 
National, State, City, and County Bonds, and on good Local Stocks, Merchandise, and other availa 
ble collaterals pledged to the Company. 

To receive on Special Deposit, for safe keeping, at reasonable rates. Cash Boxes, Tin Trunks, 
Bullion, Jewelry, Precious Stones, Gold and Silver Plate, Public Securities, Bonds, Stocks, Wills,

To act as Agent for Governments, Corporations, Eastern and Foreign Capitalists, Non-Resi- 
dents, Persons leaving the State, and other parties, in the investment of Funds, the purchase and 
sale of Real Estate, Public Securities, Stocks, and other property, the collection of Debts, Interest, 
Dividends, Rents, Accounts, and in any monetary or personal business. 

To act as Trustee for Corporations, Absentees, Married Women, Minor Heirs, Testators, and 
others, in holding and managing Real Estate and Personal Property, in Mortgages, Deeds, Wills, 
and other documents made to secure the payment of Bonds, Legacies, Annuities, and for other 
Trust purposes. 

The Company will act as Receiver in cases of Litigation, of money paid into Courts, of Assets 
belonging to Estates, of Funds awaiting disposition, and in unsettled Partnership concerns. Also, as 
Executor of Wills and Administrator of Estates ; as Guardian for Children, Insane Persons, and 
others incapacitated from transacting business; as Treasurer for Companies, Societies, and Charitable 
Institutions. It will hold Powers of Attorney for Non-Residents and parties absent from the 
State, and will transact any business th.it may properly be done by a Trust or Safe-Deposit Company. 
The affairs of the Company will be conducted upon liberal, but safe principles. It will not 
discount or deal in Commercial or Business Paper, and no Loans will be made on Individual 
Security. The interest allowed on Deposits and Trust Funds, and that charged on Loans will 
be equitable. The rates for the safe keeping of Valuable Property and Papers will be reasonable, 
and all Agency and other business will be transacted on liberal terms. The Vaults of the Com- 
pany are the largest and strongest in the State, built for the Safe-Deposit business, and are perfectly 
tire and burglar-proof. 

Deposits will be received and accounts kept in Gold and Silver Coin, or National Currency, 
payable in the same, as customers may desire. The Company will have Correspondents in every 
State and Territory of the Union, and in Foreign Countries having business relatidfts with the Pacific 
Coast, thus affording good facilities for making collections and transacting financial business. Eastern 
citizens and foreign travelers visiting California on business, or for pleasure, are invited to have 
their letters and papers addressed to the care of the Company, and can use its office for their business 
and correspondence. 

Especial attention is called to the great advantages of employing this Company in the transaction 
of such business, in preference to individuals: A large Guarantee Capital, with over Two Hundred 
Stockholders; its operations directed and controlled by a responsible Board of Trustees ; a Perpetual 
existence; a Permanent and Central Office, where business can be transacted without delay ; faithful 
and obliging Officers and Employes, who will promptly attend to the interests of all customers ; 
a well-organized system of Records and Accounts, showing every transaction with the Company; 
and the security of Fire and Burglar-proof Vaults, constructed expressly for the Safe-Deposit business. 

These features are strongly urged in its favor, against, on the other hand — Individual Respon- 
sibility; the Uncertainty of Life; the Fluctuations of Business; the Changes of Residence; the 
frequent Unfaithfulness and Neglect of Agents ; the Inconvenience to Friends; the Loss of Time in 
waiting upon private parties ; and the danger of loss by Fire or Theft of valuable property and 
papers.

This School has been established about fifteen years. Its facilities have been 
greatly increased within the past two years. New buildings and enlargements thus 
added have cost not less than forty thousand dollars. The schoolrooms and dor-

and attractive. The corps of teachers is large, and is composed wholly of men 
well known in the State as educators. Students from abroad board in the Institu- 
tion with the Principals and Teachers, and receive the care, and are subject to the 
regulations requisite for health and comfort, and mental and moral progress. 

It is the aim of the conductors to secure to those committed to their care at once 
a safe and improving home, and an amply provided school ; affording them 
the means of a thorough, comprehensive, liberal education ; preparing them well 
for the walks of business, or laying a good foundation for professional studies ; 
training them to habits of order, energy and obedience, and helping to form char- 
acters sincere, manly, and unaffectedly Christian.

ing, the first on the 15th of January, and the second about the 20th of July.

TREES, SHRUBS, PLANTS, AND BDLBODS ROOTS, 



On the Pacific Coast. 



Specimen Trees planted out in the grounds as samples to aid 
purchasers in their selection. 

"We raise our own trees in quantity, and to those planting 
largely, can sell at wholesale rates. 

We are constantly receiving all the best novelties in the 
plant line, as they come out, and can furnish plants at same 
rates as sold in the States. 

Our collection of Bulbs is unrivalled, and we invite the 
Public to come and see them in bloom during Spring and Sum- 
mer, and judge for themselves. 

t 
"We have constantly on hand a large stock of trees and shrubs, 

in pots and boxes, for planting any time through the year. 

"We employ no agent*; business men can thus buy from first 
hands. 

Good gardeners recommended to lay out grounds and attend 
to gardens when required.

BROOKLYN TOWNSHIP. 



This township extends from the Estuary at the eastern ex- 
tremity of the city of Oakland to the San Leandro Creek ; 
bounded on the south by the Bay of San Francisco. There are 
two towns recognized, but tliere is no city or town government. 
The settlement at the head of the San Antonio Creek, and for 
many years known as San Antonio, is probably the oldest on the 
creek. Previous to the occupation of the country by the 
Americans, the small slough at the town of San Antonio was 
used as a landing place by dealers in hides and tallow. The 
town has for some years past been recognized by the name of 
Brooklyn. The pioneer settler is Mr. James B. Larue, now one 
of the leading business men of the place. The Justice of the 
Peace of the Township is the Hon. Asa Walker, who was 
among the earliest residents, of that locality. There are five re- 
ligious orgunizations. viz : one Presbyterian, one Catholic, one 
Episcopal, two Baptist. The Rev. George Pierson is pastor of 
the Presbyterian Church ; Eev. John Francis, of one of the 
Baptist Churches ; the Catholic Church is supplied from the 
pastorate at Oakland, and the Episcopal services are conducted 
by an army chaplain, regularly stationed at the Presidio, near 
San Francisco. 

On the banks of the Estuary is located the town of Clinton, 
which dm'ing the past two years has grown with great rapidity. 
It consists exclusively of dwelling houses. 

In the Town of Brooklyn there is an excellent Public School^ 
the Grammar school studies receiving the proper attention. In 
these two towns the values of real estate have increased as 
rapidly during the past two xenrs, as they have in the city of 
Oakland, and should the prevailing expectations concerning the 
future of this city be realized, these towns in common with 
Oakland, would form one continuous and united city. "Within 
the legal limits of the township are one flouring mill, one pottery, 
one brick yard, and a cotton mill, enterprises that have else- 
where been noticed. The total number of votes cast in the 
Township, at the late Presidential election, was 414.

THE TOWN OF ALAMEDA. 



Alameda Township comprises the Encinel, or peninsula, bound- 
ed on the north by the San Antonio Creek, on the west, south 
and east by the Bay of San Francisco. Like Oakland, the land 
is covered by a thick growth of oaks, and the soil is sandy. In 
1854, the Legislature passed an Act to incorporate the Town o* 
Alameda, but no to^ government is required, and none is now- 
maintained. Alameda contains many fine private residences, but 
the place does not appear to have kept pace with the growth of 
Oakland and Brooklyn. At the western extremity of the Encinel 
are the machine shops of the San Francisco and Alameda Eailroad 
Company, which are extensive and complete. This railroad, ex- 
tending to Ilaywards, transacts a great amount of business, and 
at certain seasons of the year the immense amount of grain grown 
in Alameda County is transported to the metropolis by this route. 

The private Insane Asylum located in this toNvn is the only 
one worthy oi^Tiiention in the State, and since it has been open- 
ed many unfortunate persons have been sent there by their friends 
in preference to the State institution. 

There are two churches in the town, a Presbyterian and a Meth- 
odist. The contemplated improvements of the Western Pacific 
Railroad Company, to be located at the western part of the town, 
will build it into a city but slightly inferior to Oakland^ its infe- 
riority consisting in the fact that there is back of the place no 
continuous stretch of territory as there is adjacent to Oakland. 
At the late Presidcntiel election, 149 votes were cast in the Town- 
ship. 

Appended are given the names of the residents of the town 
and their occupation.

These long established Nurseries are constantly adding to 
their large and varied stock, in order to meet the largely 
increasing demand of the Pacific Coast ; also, the Islands of 
the Ocean, as well as the great countries beyond. 

The business of 1868-'69 exceeding that of any former year, 
the Proprietor has planted, this season, three times as much as 
ever before, and on new gi'ound, not heretofore used for grow- 
ing trees ; thereby insuring healthy and thrifty trees, and 
grown without irrigation. 

Parties planting in different sections of the State, can be 
supplied, by applying directly to the Nurseries, or by orders 
through any of the Seedsmen in San Francisco. 

Especial attention given to Fruit trees, and also to Shade 
trees for side walks, groves, lawns, parks, etc., etc. 

Persons desirous of visiting the Nurseries, are invited to do 
so at any time during the season for growing or selling. 

W, F. KEIi9!$EY, Proprietor.
