A number of prominent Oakland cap italists have had a railroad scheme on foot r.ie time past which, if brought to a focus, will result in the building of one of the most important short lines in the State. The project of constructing a rapid-tran sit line from Petaluma to Santa Rosa, with water connections to San Francisco, was conceived some time ago, and for a month past a competent civil engineer has been looking over the ground. In consequence of his report the follow ing letter, signed by James W. Keys, the San Francisco attorney who represents the capitalists, was forwarded to B. M. Spencer of Santa Rosa and H. P.

12 WAS WELL PROVISIONED Dr. Titus Had Ordered Extra Supplies for the Hos pital. TO TIDE OVER TWO MONTHS. The Finance Committee Will Not Allow the Bills of the Dealers. The Finance Committee of the Board of Supervisors refused to allow certain bills yesterday for extra provisions, which Dr. Titus of the City and County Hospital had contracted for that institution to tide it over the period which the depleted general fund had threatened. The committee was alarmed over the increase in the monthly expenditures of the hospitai and commissioned Robert Bell to make an investigation of the stew ard's department. Bell's report showed that Dr. Titus had gone far beyond the limit in ordinary provisions, having aimed to get sufficient goods on hand to supply the hospital for the two remaining months of the fiscal year. Among other things the report stated that there were 1500 pounds of flaxseed on hand. It was decided to send back 1000 pounds. Tiedman & Co. delivered 1140 dozen of eggs from...

14 TO GET CHINA BASIN A Friendly Letter Ad dressed to the Harbor Commission. POUR OBJECTIONS MADE. They Are Not Given in Any Captious or Caviling Spirit, However. PERSONALITIES ARE AVOIDED. The Committee States Its Belief That There Is No Serious Disagreement. As a result of the meeting held Thurs day afternoon by a committee of Valley Railroad directors in the office of Attorney E. ¥. Preston a comprehensive statement of the trouble over the lease of China Basin was sent yesterday to the State Board of Harbor Commissioners. The letter pours considerable oil upon the turbulent waters, or rather what appeared on the surface to be fiercely agitated.

VOLUME LXX^JP-^'. 153. FABIOLA'S SUNNY FETE OF THE FLOWERS IN FAIR OAKLAND. Oakland had its Fabiola fete yesterday, I and Oakland was very proud when with the cool evening there came a calm hour for reflection. Fair nature in her spring time garlands of freshness and sunshine fairly reveled in the beauty of a perfect day— a little warm, perhaps, but a very fiesta in itself— and full of inspiration for the genius of festival presided in undis puted sway at the Oakland Trotting Park. Still that was not so much the cause of Oak land's pride as the fact that never before in the Athens of the Pacific was such an event witnessed, and, besides, it was a most unqualified success. The Fabiola fete was a triumph of creative and artistic talents, guided for the greater part by a ; refined appreciation of rare effects in color j and contrasts in display of dame nature x s fairest adornments. All Oakland was agog with excitement ' •arly in the morning,for great expectations j stirred the people....

2 animals on the turf. The driver, O. M. Hickok, considered the day too warm to risk a speed exhibition, and satisfied the crowds by driving up and down in front of the grandstand, where ribbons and badges were distributed by Mesdames Chabot, Yale and Miss Crockett, much to the pleasure of the spectators, who gave vent to their feelings by cheering and pelting the beautiful animal with flowers. In the mile pacing, free for all, Touchet was entered and driven by M. Castro, and Fresno Prince by L. J. Smith. The start and race was an even one, and was won by a neck by Fresno Prince in 2:24. The most interesting harness race of the day was a mile event in the 2:15 class. The entries were Gold West, with E. M. Nelson as driver, and Sago, with Pete Williams smanipulating the ribbons. Golden West is a pacer, and had a nat ural advantage over the trotter Sago, who got off a length in the lead and retained that position until near the finish, when Williams made a burst of speed and closed th...

4 IS ASKED TO EXPLAIN President Cleveland Is Now After Admiral Meade. THAT HARSH CRITICISM. Administration Men Do Not Relish the Naval Officer's Utterances. PROBABLY A COURT- MARTIAL. There Is Also a Prospect of Sec retary Herbert's Methods Be ing Dragged Up. WASHINGTON,* D. C, May 10.—Ad miral Meade has been asked by President Cleveland whether or not he was correctly reported in a harsh criticism of his supe rior officers published in the New York Tribune, and upon Admiral Meade 's reply will depend the chance of a court-martial inquiry and his possible dismissal from the navy. Nothing will be done until his reply shall have been received. The affair is an interesting topic of gossip among naval officers here. An officer said to the Call correspondent to day that he expected there would be trouble when he learned that "Fighting Bob" Evans and Admiral Meade were to serve together. The former stands very close to Presi dent Cleveland and goes hunting and fish ing with him. It is bel...

DEFEAT OF THE BILL Anti-Revolution Is Not Appreciated in Germany. TALK IN THE REICHSTAG The Unpopular Measure Is Finally Killed Section by Section. SOCIALISTS ON THEIR METTLE. They Declare That the Army Is At tempting to Gain a Pretext for Slaughter. BERLIN, Germany, May 11.— In view of the rejection by the Reichstag of para graph 111 of the anti-revolution bill, which practically settled the fate of that measure, nobody was surprised when the Reichstag to-day, after rejecting paragraph 112 re fused to further discus the bill, and all its amendments were withdrawn. Then the entire bill, paragraph by paragraph, \v:is rejected without debate and the Reichstag adjourned. Though the rejection of the anti-revo lution bill did not surprise anybody who has followed the popular agitation against it, and although the rejection yesterday of paragrayih 111 hopelessly emasculated the bill, the discussion of the other sections was to drag along for a time, as the Government did not intend to wit...

6 IT WAS RATHER WARM Mercury Went Up and Cool Drinks Went E)own in San Francisco Yesterday. MAY RECORDS BROKEN AGAIN. It Was Hot as the Nineties and the Cool Ocean Breezes Were All et Sea. California said "Phew!"' yesterday, mopped its dripping brow and shouted for more iced drinks. Summer is warming the lap of spring this time. The nineties exclaimed "Hello! So soon?" to the swelling mercury as it pressed furiously upward to break another May record. The ocean kept up its em bargo on its cooling winds and just let the City Bnd the valleys further landward swelter. Here in the City there was hardly a zephyr stirring, and the sun blazed away from a sky beautifully clear except for a lazy haze that softened the blue above. The 6un was re-enforced by a light flow of hot, dry air from the heated interior val leys and the baking arid regions further to the north and east, where the area of high, pressure was eending its currents forth. In San Francisco the mercury seized the opportunity ...
