OAKLAND NEWS.

Again Weds His Divorced Wife.

Warren M. Watson, capitalist and wholesale liquor dealer, has another surprise in store for his friends. It was only a couple weeks ago that he astonished them by securing a divorce. He made some very strong charges against his wife and for reasons best known to herself she deemed it advisable not to enter a contest to the suit. Mrs. Watson was told of the evidence her husband had and consented to compromise. Watson, who is worth about $75,000, gave her $10,000 as her share of the community property and also signed an agreement to allow her a certain sum of alimony every month. This being agreed to Watson secured his divorce without any trouble. When the suit was first brought the pretty wife was in Denver. Her husband took the precaution to get possession of the diamonds which he had given her, worth about $5,000. She arrived in Oakland just in time to find that she was free. As the divorce case implicated a couple of prominent men in Oakland, Mrs. Watson thought that she would break away from her old associations, so she went back to Denver. Although the capitalist was free he was not happy. He kept track of his divorced wife, and to the surprise of his friends he again fell madly in love with her and determined to win back both her and the $10,000. Watson paved the way by writing letters, and he made love through the mail. It was agreed that a meeting should be had at Sacramento. Last Monday Watson went to the Capital City, and there he met Mrs. Watson, who had just arrived from Denver. The couple started for Los Angeles at once, and were married in that city last Wednesday night. They are now touring the southern part of the State on their honeymoon. Mr. Watson kept the matter a strict secret from his friends who had assisted him in the divorce case, because he knew that they would not approve of his action.

WARREN WATSON BACK FROM EUROPE

Mrs. Watson Will Remain in Paris to Study the French Language.

Warren M. Watson of the wholesale wine and liquor store of W. M. Watson & Co. has returned home after an absence of eighteen months in Europe. While abroad Mr.. Watson was accompanied by his wife. They made a tour of France, Italy, Switzerland and the British Isles, making it a point to see almost everything that was worth seeing in the places they visited. Mrs. Watson has returned in the best of health and full of information as regards the places of interest in the old world. He finds that, during his absence, his business has been conducted in a capable manner by the young men in whose care he left it. Mr. Watson is one of the most persistent of foreign travelers resident in this city, and it is not at all improbable that, before many months, he may again betake himself of some part of Europe which thus far has escaped his attention. Mrs. Watson remains with her sister, Mrs. Reichmond, to finish her study of the French language.

WARREN WATSON IS HONORED

APPOINTED ONE OF YOSEMITE COMMISSIONERS BY GOVERNOR PARDEE.

Warren W. Watson, who was, for so many years, in the wine trade in this city but who has retired from business, and who now spends his winters in San Francisco and his summers at his country home near Pleasanton, in this county, received his commission today from Governor Pardee as a member of the Board of Commissioners to manage the Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Big Tree Grove. The appointment has been made to fill the vacancy occasioned on the Board by the death of the late Hon. W. W. Foote, of this city. It is a coincidence that John H. O'Brien, formerly Mr. Watson's partner in business, held the position to which the latter has been appointed, for fourteen years. Mr. Watson is pleased with his official position, more especially because his preferment takes place on the eve of his departure with his wife on his fourth trip around the world.


CHARLES JURGENS.

Charles Jurgens, who is one of the oldest business men still active in the commercial life of Oakland, was born in Waldeck, Germany, January 3, 1844 In that country he was educated, pursuing his studies to the age of sixteen years, when, in 1860, he sailed for America. Landing in New York, he made his way to Michigan and remained in that state for three years, at the end of which time he started for California by way of the Isthmus route. Crossing the bay from San Francisco on the steamer Clinton, which then made daily trips between the two places, he settled in Oakland when the city consisted of but four business blocks and the streets were of deep sand. He engaged as a clerk in a grocery house in what was then called San Antonio and in 1868 embarked in business on his own account as proprietor of a grocery store in Temescal, now known as North Oakland. After conducting the business for several years he sold out in 1876 and built the St. Johns House, the first brick business block on Twelfth street, having a plate-glass front and a basement. The people generally considered the innovation foolish. He then built the present Globe Hotel, at Thirteenth and Broadway, conducting it until recently, when he leased it.

In 1905 he bought out the W. M. Watson Company and called it the Winedale Company, of which he is the president. He is a director in many large banks and business establishments, has dealt extensively in real estate and is one of the very wealthy men of Alameda county. He is regarded as a very active, energetic business man, wide-awake to the conditions of trade and at all times alert and enterprising. Fraternally Mr. Jurgens is a member of the Inde­pendent Order of Odd Fellows and is popular in that organization. In 1870 he was united in marriage to Miss Catherine Springer, who passed away in 1913, leaving two sons and two daughters. Mr. Jurgens has witnessed and helped in the growth of Oakland and he marks as epochs in the city’s development: 1863, when the Southern Pacific built the Seventh street line; 1868, when the Overland Railroad was completed; 1876, Centennial year, when the city had a rapid and unusual growth; and 1906, when the city really awoke from a village to realize its true destiny.

WILLIAM C. JURGENS.

William C. Jurgens is secretary of the Winedale Company, controlling one of the largest wholesale and retail liquor houses in the county. He was born in Oakland [Temescal], California, January 13, 1873, and is a son of Charles Jurgens. Reared in his native city. the public schools afforded William C. Jurgens his preliminary educational opportunities. He passed through consecutive grades until graduated from the high school, in December, 1892. He next entered the University of California and was graduated in 1897. He subsequently had charge of the cooperative store at the university for five years, at the end of which time he and his father bought out the W. M. Watson Company, which they have since conducted under the firm name of the Winedale Company. Since that time William Jurgens has been secretary, and as such has been active in the control of a business which is growing along substantial lines. He is watchful of all indications concerning trade conditions, is energetic and determined in carrying out his plans, and as the years have passed on has achieved a measure of success which is the direct and merited reward of persistent, earnest effort.

In Oakland, on the 13th of January, 1911, Mr. Jurgens was united in marriage to Miss Gladys Thorpe. Fraternally he is connected with the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks. He has never been a politician in the sense of office seeking, preferring to concentrate his energies upon his business affairs, which, capably directed, have brought to him substantial success. He has many friends in the city in which he has spent his entire life and attractive social qualities have made him popular among those with whom he is connected.


Warren Mortimer Watson on 1906 is listed as a Royal Arch Mason in the Alcatraz Chapter No. 8a, Oakland, Alameda Co., CA.

RETURNS FROM WORLD'S TOUR

W. M. Watson Tells of What He Saw in His Globe Circling Expedition.

W. M. Watson, whose name has been interwoven with the commercial development of Oakland for so many years, has recently returned from a trip around the world. He is now staying at his Pleasanton summer home, La Villa Marguerete. Mr. Watson was taken sick while in Paris just before his return, and while he is now in better health, He has not yet fully recovered. He will remain at his Pleasanton summer home for several months, and he may be compelled to stay there through the winter because of the destruction of the Palace hotel in San Francisco, where he usually lived in winter. Mr. Watson's return was hastened by the San Francisco earthquake and fire, and the stories he tells of how the news was first received in Paris are most interesting to those who went through it all, and who can see how far at variance with the facts the first reports were that reached the great French capital. Said Mr. Watson:

THE NEWS.

"I was in Paris at the time of the great San Francisco disaster, and had been quite sick. The first word that reached the American colony was a dispatch to Le Petit Journal saying that San Francisco had been destroyed by a earthquake which shook it to the ground, the earthquake being followed by a tidal wave which submerged half the city, while the other half burned; Oakland had sunk out of sight under water, and a tidal wave had swept everything that was left of our beautiful city, while other cities of California - Los Angeles, Sacramento, etc., - were in ruins. You can imagine that it did not make the Californians in Paris feel very good, and when, for several days, we got no definite news, we began to fear for the worst. It was three days before we got some reliable information, which came through the Paris edition of the New York Herald. Then we learned that while things were bad enough, that at least a portion of the great city was saved, and that Oakland that was doing a great work in caring for the survivors.

HURRIED BACK.

"Of course the disaster hastened my return, and I have now been back a little more than two weeks. In that time I have gone through San Francisco very thoroughly, and I can say very truthfully that I have seen more ruins in the city by the Golden Gate than I did in all of my travels around the world, and that the city will rebuild in better style than before. I say that San Francisco was the greatest city in  the world, for there never was a city where money was made so fast or so easily.

THE TRIBUNE.

"This is also going to help Oakland for some years to come, and I am glad to see THE TRIBUNE has been fully abreast of the times, and has taken its place as the leading evening paper of California. "I left San Francisco on September 27 on the steamer Manchuria, sailing with William Jennings Bryan. In my tour around the world I met Bryan several times, and I found him to be a most charming man. He has made a great impression abroad. "We 'did' the orient thoroughly, and would have spent a much longer time in Europe had it not been for the San Francisco disaster and my health. We spent five weeks in Japan and found the Japanese a wonderfully industrious and energetic nation. There was some little feeling that Japan had not gained what they were entitled to from the war with Russia, but that was not as general as reported, and was confined mostly to the agitators.

VISITED CHINA.

"We made the usual stops at Shanghai, Hong Kong; went up the river to Canton and looked at the great cities of the Chinese coast. Then we went to the United States possessions in the far east, and spent some little time in Manila. I can not speak too highly of the work of the American government in the Philippines. They are working for the benefit of the American speculators. This is very different from the work of any other enlightened government in the far east. The United States officers are constructing 'Fort McKinley' at Manila, and when this work is completed it will be the finest piece of fortification in the world, and I will bar none.

SAW INDIA.

"India was visited very thoroughly, particularly the northern section. This is a great country, but the English control is not as good as that of the American control in the Philippines. "Some little time was spent in Cairo, Egypt, and I was greatly disappointed. We visited this place eleven years ago in a tour of Europe. At that time it was a thoroughly oriental city, with all of the peculiar oriental customs and institutions, about the only occidental institution being the few red-coated British soldiers who constituted the garrison. Now everything is changed. The city has become a miniature Paris. The donkey boys and donkeys, which were the only means of travel when I was there before, and which were one of the great charms of the city, have disappeared completely. Instead, there is the clang of the American trolley line and the little French carriage for transportation through the city and to the pyramids. There has been a tremendous boom in land, and a piece of land that was offered to me for $5000 when I was there before, sold while I was there this time for $250,000 But Cairo is spoiled for the tourist, and it has become a modern city.

EUROPE UNCHANGED.

"Europe itself changes but little. The most important fact that I noticed was the increased respect shown Americans. Today the United States is a world power, and there is no European country that commands more respect than ours. "However, I am glad to be back, though I am sorry to see the desolation of San Francisco. I am glad to see the prosperity of Oakland, and I believe thoroughly in the future of the district above San Francisco bay."

BRYAN SPEAKS.

An interesting little incident happened upon the sailing of Mr. Bryan and Mr. Watson from San Francisco. Bryan delivered an address at the sailing of the Manchuria, and at the close Mr. Watson stepped quickly forward and presented him with an American flag. This brought forth more cheers and Mr. Bryan said afterwards that it was one of the most graceful things that had been done in his long careen as a public man.

WATSON'S RETURN TO THE OLD HOME

After a Year in Europe the Pioneer Merchant Is Again in Oakland.

After a year in Europe and a short sojourn at the Palace hotel, Warren M. Watson and wife are again back to the old home at the corner of Eighth avenue and East Sixteenth street. "And I am glad to get back," said Mr. Watson, one of the pioneer merchants of this city. "I will admit Europe has its charms. My health was benefitted at Carlsbad and the change of scene in Switzerland and Italy did me a world of good, but after all it was the change and not the climate which I credit with my improvement in health. I spent the winter in Florence and though it is a little warmer at that period of the year than here, I much prefer our own weather. I guess that is because I belong to Oakland and I am prejudiced. "I am glad to know that we are to have a first-class hotel here and we need it badly. Richard Dieves, the millionaire New Yorker who is famed for the construction of skyscrapers, would have willingly stopped in Oakland had there been a place to accommodate him. "I met many in the East who expressed a desire to spend the winter months here but we have no place for them. "Los Angeles has hotels and tourist accommodations. We must follow their example and provide first-class hotels as well as those that cater to families. "However, we are progressing and Oakland is being talked of in the East and shows notable signs of progress. "I am glad to be back to the city and am going to stay here permanently. I never did leave it for good only on a trip for my health and it is all right now." And Mr. Warren's appearance corroborates his last statement.

WATSON FUNERAL IS HELD TODAY

Last Tribute is Paid to Well-Known Oakland Capitalist

The funeral of Warren Mortimer Watson, a retired capitalist, residing at 1614 Eighth avenue, East Oakland, was held this afternoon under the auspices of Alcatraz Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons, in Alcatraz Hall, Seventh and Peralta streets. Prior to the Masonic services Rev. H. S. Windsor, pastor to the Eighth Avenue Episcopal church, read the last rites of the church at the family residence. For the past thirty-five years Watson lived here, where he was a heavy property holder. His death, which occurred last Tuesday, was caused by apoplexy. Before he was stricken he was declining in health and was under the care of physicians. He was 67 years of age. The decedent was born in Rochester, N. Y., and settled here when he was a young man. He engaged in the wholesale liquor business and was a successful dealer in the early days of this city. About ten years ago he retired from active life and centered his attention upon real estate. He amassed considerable wealth and traveled extensively in company with his wife, Mrs. Margaret E. Watson, who, with several sisters in the East, are his only survivors. In fraternal circles the pioneer was honored. He was a member of the Odd Fellows, Aahmes Temple, Mystic Shrine, and also Alcatraz Lodge. He gave liberally to charity. Many prominent Masons of this city paid their last tribute to the departed at the services today. The interment was in Mountain View cemetery.

REISCHMAN'S MISSING WILL IN OWN GRAVE?

Question Is Raised by Judge During Controversy Over Estate.

Did the missing will of the late Matthew Reischman, of 2500 Linden street, go to his grave with him? This question was raised by Superior Judge E. C. Robinson today during a controversy between heirs of Reischman as to whether or not he had died intestate. Testimony showed that a search on the part of relatives had failed to disclose a will after the death of Reischman. Then one of the witnesses said that Reischman had been buried in his business suit, which had been hurriedly gathered up from where he had placed it when he fell ill. "Did you search the pockets?" asked Judge Robinson. Receiving a negative reply from the witness, Judge Robinson suggested that there might have been a will after all, and that it might have been buried with Reischman. Upon the question as to whether Reischman died with or without a will depends that as to whether his estate will go to his five-year-old grandson, or to his sister, Mrs. Margaret E. Watson. In a document, presumably intended by Reischman as a will, in which he bequeathed his estate to Mrs. Watson, he left out mention of the grandson. Under the law this this invalidates the will, leaving the grandson as the heir-in-law.


Margarette Elizabeth "Maggie" (Watson) Watson died February 13, 1924, in France, at age 61.
