WILL MAKE A TRIP TO LAKE MERCED. The Supervisors to Inspect the Colma Watershed To-Day. MAYOR SUTRO TO GO ALONG. An Ordinance Modifying the Fire Ordinance Is Passed Over the Mayor's Veto. At the meeting of the Board of Super visors yesterday Mayor Sutro again brought up the subject of the impurity of the water which is being furnished to the city by the Spring Valley company. The Mayor in broaching the subject delivered the follow ing address: Gentlemen: At the last meeting of your hon orable board, called to establish water rates, I drew attention to an analysis by Professor Thomas Price of a sample taken from Laguna Merced in which he declares that "such a water can only be classified as foul and danger ous, and is absolutely unfit for drinking pur poses or general domestic use." Some evidence was also given in regard to the contamination of the watershed of Laguna Merced which induced me since that meeting to visit in person the locality in order to ascer tain whether the stateme...

COED HARDLY BE CALLED A MATCH. Romair Went to the Post Lame. and Was Never in It With Ingomar. . THE FAVORITES FARED WELL. Ferrier Redeemed Himself by Defeating Lucky Dog and Others Handily. The bank roll of the wealthy voting Englishman, J. Talbot Clifton, was dimin ished to the extent of $2500 by the match race at the track yesterday between his horse Romair and the Kentucky stable's Ingomar. The distance was seven fur longs, each horse to carry 120 pounds. As a betting affair the match was a decided failure, Engomar being an odds on favorite. Romair went to the post on three legs and finished on,two. It was only through suf ferance that Chora allowed Romair to keep within a Length of his mount, and contented himself with winning by a couple of lengths. Romair pulled up so lame that it was with difficulty that he limped back to the paddock. The Bur linirame horseman took the matter very philosophically and seemed to feel keener the loss of his friends that had bet on the crippled ...

12 SEVEN HUNDRED . THOUSAND DOLLARS. The Valley Road Will Expend That amount on the Mud Flats. SO SAYS CLAUS SPRECKELS. Bids Called For on the Supply of Rails for the New- Line. The Legislature is just now the body in which President Spreckels and the other officials of the valley road are most interested, and i;s probable action regarding the bill now before it affecting the important work now under contemplation was the object of much con jecture yesterday. Mr. Spreckels called attention to the present condition of the mud flats, while discussing the matter yesterday, and pointed out that the proposed lease of this property would transform it from its com paratively worthless condition into a valu able holding for the city. "The improvements we contemplate making there, provided we are authorized to lease the property, will cost our com pany fully $700,000," said he. Just what these improvements consist of Mr. Spreckels refused to state, confining himself strictly to the lump sum ...

VOLUME LXXVII.-NO. 93. THE PACIFIC COAST. Santa Cruz Grand Jury's Report on the Water Bond Case. 3 CITY COUNCIL'S ERROR. Severe Censure of the Legal Adviser Who Misled the Officials. THE DISHONEST PURCHASERS. A Review of the Case Which Has Involved the SeasldeCCity in so Much Trouble. Santa Cruz, March 12.— The Grand Jury presented a report this afternoon mostly devoted to an investigation of the city bond transactions. The failure of Coffin & Stanton, who took the bonds, to comply with the law is pointed out. Then it goes on to say: That a grave error was com mitted by the City Council in turning over the bonds to Walter Stanton without following strictly the provisions of the law seems incontestible, but that such an error was intentional or that any member of the Council was guilty of criminal intent or willful wrongdoing the Grand Jury does not believe. The Council was unfortun ately misled as to the law in the matter, and that fact alone caused them to take the mistaken cou...

"What I want to know is, , what object you fellows have in making statements of this sort to men. who know nothing about law?

TALKING INCOME TAX. Attorney-General Olney Upholds the Present Statute. CONGRESS IS SUPREME. No Court Can Ignore the Action of the National Body of Lawmakers. THE TEST CASES LOST TIME Unless Former Decisions Are Dis puted the Present Law Must Be Upheld. Washington, March 12.— The proceed ings in the income-tax case in the Supreme Court to-day opened with an argument by Attorney-General Olney, on behalf of the Government, for the validity of the tax. The courtroom inside the bar was crowded, and there was no time when the limited capacity of the room was sufficient to ac commodate the audience. Mr. Olney began by saying that the chief interest of the Government in the litiga tion was limited to constitutional questions, which the several plaintiffs allege to be involved. Whether they are really in volved he would not attempt to determine. An examination of the plaintiffs' bills and briefs and arguments seemed to him to show that many of the alleged objections to the validity of the i...

4 FIRED UPON AT SEA. Spaniards Intercept the American Steam ship Allianca. SOLID SHOT WAS USED. The Ensign Was Dipped, but No Respect Paid to the Customary Salute. FULL EXPLANATION WANTED. Captain Crossman Thinks He Was Taken for a Revolutionary Transport. New York, March 12. — The 'American mail steamship Allianca, which was pro ceeding from Colon to New York on the Btb inst., signaled a barkentine-rigged steamer under the land off Cape Mays!, at the eastern edge of Cuba, which headed directly toward her. At 7 o'clock, when about two and a half miles distant, she hoisted the Spanish flag, which was saluted by hoisting the American ensign and dip ping, which act of courtesy was not an swered by the Spaniard. At 7 :15 o'clock she fired a blank cartridge to leeward, soon followed by another. The American ensign was again hoisted and dipped, but the course and speed of the ship was not changed, no hostile demon stration being anticipated. The Allianca was more than six miles off land. ...

8 AGRICULTURE ON THE PACIFIC COAST. Chemical Elements of %m Soil necessary to plant Life. THE VALUE OF FERTILIZERS. Notes From Orchard and Farm. Outlook for the Season. Chemical science has settled two very important questions in agriculture. First, that there are only three elements that any soil is likely to be deficient in for the growth and maintenance of plant life, and they are nitrogen, phosphorus and potas sium. Second, that these three elements must be in soluble condition in order that plant life may assimilate them. Nitrogen is an invisible, tasteless and odorless gas. The air we breathe is com posed of about four-fifths of this element. It is a constituent of all products of growth, whether animal or vegetable, and exists in several forms. First, in organic matter, as in dried blood, bones, fish scrap, tankage, guano, cotton-seed meal, castor bean pomace, grape pomace, linseed meal ami manures. Second, in nitrates, as nitrate of soda. Third, in ammonia, of which it forms...

THE "CRABS " ALL HAD AN OUTING. Five Selling Races Afforded the "Skates" a Chance to Win Out. REV ALTA WON AT 20 TO 1. Hyman Once More Proved a "Good Thing'" and Won at 6 to 1. The card throughout yesterday was made tip of cheap selling races, and the public appreciated the fact by staying away. The attendance as well as the betting was light, the plungers not caring to wager much money on plugs that are not worth a hun dredth part of the coin they put up. Notwithstanding the badly mixed condi tion of the card three favorites managed to land the money. The one long-priced out sider to win was Key Alta, who gathered in the second race very handily. Starting in the betting at 20 to 1, twelves could be had against him at post time. ' For the opening race, a short six-furlong run, Don Caesar went to the post a 7 to 10 favorite, and won easily from Prince vine, who beat Emma Mack a head for the place in a drive.

12 MRS. HIRSCH WILL SHE FOR DAMAGES. She Makes Some Sensational Charges Against Mrs. Tillie Figel. AN ALLEGED CONSPIRACY. The Wife of the Insurance Agent Accused of Commit ting Perjury. A suit that is likely to be prolific of some interesting developments will be filed shortly against Mrs. Tillie Figel, wife of Arthur Figel, city agent of the Guardian Assurance Company, of 1930 Ellis street. The plaintiff in tbe suit will be Mrs. Morris Hirsch, wife of the manager of the Royal Security Exchange, the office of which is in the Donohoe building. The suit, which is to be one for heavy damages, will be based on the contention by Mrs. Hirsch that Mrs. Figel conspired with a Mrs. Bowman and a Mrs. Schiller — the latter being Mrs. Hirsch's sister-in law — to deprive her (Mrs. Hirsch) of the care and custody of her adopted child, Ernestine, now 12 years of age.
