LATEST OAKLAND NEWS Enterprising Capitalists Plan ning a New Competing Railroad. SAN JOSE TO HOLLISTER. Federated Trades Report on the Sunday Closing of Saloons. Oakland capitalists have caught the com peting railroad fever with a vengeance and in addition to the proposed line between Santa Rosa and Petaiuma have planned a new line which, if their calculations come to anything, will be an important factor in the freight and passenger trafiic of some of the interior counties. Louis Gottshall is doing the booming for those interested and is now in San Benito County looking over the ground and work ing the people of that section up to the proper pitch ©f enthusiasm. The present plans are to build a narrow gauge road between San Jose and Hollister to be in direct competition with the Southern Pacific. The line will be about fifty-five miles long, and the route which has been selected carries it through one of the most prosperous and productive sections of the State, insuring a large amo...

14 BAD LANGUAGE IN LAWS About the Worst English on Record in the Law for Teachers. PUZZLES IN EVERY SECTION. The Law Won't Work, Nobody Un derstands It and the Teachers Are Distracted. The teachers of San Francisco are in a state of distraction over the teachers' pen sion law created by the last Legislature. That is not surprising, for that teachers' pension act threatens to drive the Supreme Court to drink if it ever gets before that body. Apart from its relation to the interests of the public school teachers of the State this law in nine sections is of interest because it is a shining example of what a State Legislature can do in the way of butchering the Queen's English and in building out of words obscurities, incon sistencies, stupidities and fool mandates; laws of the land which cannot be under stood, and which could not be made to work if anybody could make out how they were intended to work. And this, too, is a law for school-teach ers. They framed a law themselves which was...

16 INCOME-TAX DECISION Reimbursement May Be Asked for Taxes Under the Old Law. MILLIONS WERE PAID HERE. Court of Claims the Tribunal to Which Appeal for Redress Should Be Made. When the Supreme Court of the United States declared the income-tax law of 1894 unconstitutional many people inquired at once if the decision was not in effect a declaration that the income-tax legislation enacted during the war was directly con trary to the constitution. If the Supreme Court is now right in overthrowing a law taxing incomes it was wrong when it sustained a law imposing a tax of that character. The decision is re markable in this, that it reverses a broad principle under which hundreds of mil lions of dollars have been collected from the people of this Nation and paid into the National treasury. In the argument of the case when the issue was pending in the United States Supreme Court Attorney-General Olney raised this very point, maintaining that persons who paid the tax under the old law wou...

VOLUME LXXVII.-NO. 167. PACIFIC COAST NEWS Silkworm Culture a New Industry in Tu lare. FROM ENSENADA'S JAIL. Vice-Consul Godbe Secures the Freedom of Seymour Jackson. CHOOSING VISALIA'S CtUEEN. Charges Against Governor Hughes of Arizona Now Being In vestigated. TUbARE, Cal., May 25.— An attempt at the culture of silkworms, which has re sulted successfully, adds another industry to the many of Tulare County. It has been proven by experiment that the in dustrious little creatures thrive in this climate, and the manufacture of an ex cellent grade of silk is one of the possibili ties of the future in Tulare. Some weeks ago Frank Grifflno received from Italy a few eggs of the silkworm, which hatched in a few days, and to-day he has thousands of the little insects in the various stages of their transformation. The worms are in a perfectly healthy con dition and readily spin their cocoons, which are hard, compact and of the very best quality of silk. Mr. Griffino says the soil and climate ...

2 der the act approved March 31, 1891, which went into effect May 80, 1891: "The board approved claims for coyote scalps to and including the quarter ending Sept. 30, 1892, the amount that had been issued to that date being $190,275. We ex pected that there would be a marked de crease, as this amount would show that 38,055 coyotes had already been killed; but we are surprised to find that while the quarter ending September 30, 1892, amount ed to $27,390, yet the quarter ending De cember 31, 1892, amounted to $53,060. "Careful examination of the claims from the various counties developed the fact that the greatest increase in the bounty demands occurred in Kern County, which for the quarter ending December 31, 1892, footed up $9--50, while for the quarter end ing December 31, 1894, two years afterward, the claims reached the very respectable figure of $16,355, which would seem to indi cate that, had no fraud occurred among the county officials handling said scalps, the effect of the ...

CURRENCY HIS THEME Carlisle Endeavors to Enlighten Voters of Kentucky. HAS NO USE FOR SILVER. So He Talks on the Lines Laid Down by the Ad ministration. GOLD THE PROPER MEDIUM. Coinage of the White Metal, Says the Secretary, Would Cause a Great Panic. BOWLING GREEN, Ky., May 25.— Hon. J. G. Carlisle, Secretary of the Treas ury, spoke here to-day in the opera-house on the currency question. The seating capacity of the house is only about 2000, and it was found necessary to exclude women and children, voters only being ad mitted. When Mr. Carlisle was, escorted upon the stage he was greeted with loud applause. After a brief statement that he was there as a Democrat to discuss public questions and not in any way to apologize for the administration, which he knew needed no apology, Mr. Carlisle com menced as follows: The question is whether we shall continue to preserve our present monetary system, under which all the dollars in use with the people, whether gold, silver or paper, are eq...

4 GOOD MARTS ABROAD Consuls Report Demand for Products of America. FRUITS OF CALIFORNIA. They Find a Ready Sale in Many Parts of the Orient. BETTER PACKING NECESSARY. Several Lines of Staples From This Country Used In China and Japan. WASHINGTON, D. C, May 25.— The Bureau of Statistics of the State Depart ment has just published reports from con sular officers upon the Oriental market for dairy products and fruits. Consul Hunt at Hongkong sums up the subject for that part of China as follows: "There are two articles — condensed milk and raisins — from the United States which are used by Europeans and Chinese and should command an important place in the market. I might add that bacon, butter and ham, and all kinds of salt meats are in demand at a small profit; however, it is necessary to improvise a new mode of packing them superior or at least equal to that of Europeans. "It is absolutely necessary in this climate to protect any perishable fruit, as the voyage is too long to avail o...

KALE MEN IN THE LEAD. Pennsylvania Gets the Second Plaea *nd Harvard Third. BERKELEY BOYS OUTNUMBERED, But Some of Them Will Be In the Team to Contest for Honors In England. NEW YORK, N. V., May 25.— The great Mott Haven games are over and Yale num bers have won as was expected. The fact that Pennsylvania was a close second showed the status of the California team since Pennsylvania was unable to defeat the U. C. team on the 18th. The Califor nians made a fine showing, winning seven points with ten men. Yale scored thirty points with ninety-three entries. The blue and gold was kindly treated by the audience, though the cheering that it received was often amusing. "Rah, rah, rah! Zip, boom, ah! Tiger! California!" cried the boys of Nassau. The Harvard men roared out, "Ra, ra. ra, ra, ra, ra, ra, ra, ra! California!" and the Pennsylvania men sang out their "Kentuckieie! Whiskyeye! Pennsylva nieye." The entire California team feel certain of one fact — with twice their numbers they cou...

6 CHIVALRY AND CHARITIES Exhibition Drill by the Hos pital Corps at the Presidio. TRAINING OF POLICEMEN. Doctor's Daughters Favor Teach ing Guardians of the Peace Gentleness. "Doctor's Daughters, fall into line! For ward! March!" This order was laughingly obeyed yester day afternoon by a bevy of San Francisco's fairest daughters. No one knew from whom the order came, certainly not from handsome and galiant Captain Frick, who was master of the ceremonies at which the Doctor's Daughters presided. It was shouted by one of the small but representa tive assemblage that witnessed the ex hibition drill by the Hospital Corps, T7. S. A., at the Presidio. Everybody has heard of the charitable organization known as the Doctor's Daughters. Organized eight years ago and named in honor of Dr. Mackenzie, who inspired the organization, composed of about_ forty of this City's best-known maids and~matrons, and pursuing its ob ject of caring for the sick who are destitute but worthy, it has come to be...

8 THE WOMAN'S CONGRESS COMES TO AN END. fc~ ig-^HE Woman's Congress is inurned in the awful past. It came, it was>, and it is not. For six days }\ <lid it labor and, now, Christian like, it rests on this holy Sabbath day. It has gone, but its deeds will live after it. Behind it has left a booming train of onrushing thought, a band of clear headed, self-sacrificing women, and a heaven of hope. It is dead, but will come to life aj/ain and again if need be, that the prayers of the prayerful may be answered — that woman may have the power to guide her children right and make the ideal home so pleasantly pictured forth. The last day was not the best day, tak ing the measure of new thought furnished, but it was probably more interesting than any. It was Saturday, "hash day," as one lady aptly put it, and the harvest of the week's thought, carefully garnered, was thoroughly thrashed and securely housed. The last sessions epitomized the work of all the others and those who had been un...

life was that of a slave and a drudge. But ! i the deacons believed in marrying early j ] and often. Deacon Seawell had no less ' than a good half-dozen to his score. The ( poor overworked women of colonial days in New England died young — worked to death.

She had a few happy remarks to make about the hard Time men have had in finally deciding that woman has a soul, i Mr?. Bowies said it was natural that woman should be a hone of contention since she was made from the bone of a man. Mrs. Nelson said there were a great many ignoble people in the world, and i they come from homes, too. A good home j cannot exist without good people in it.

10 THE MATTHEWS MYSTERY Lawyers Now Say That Win throp's Trusteeship Was Irrevocable. CAPTAIN LEES 1 INFORMATION. A Letter Which May Throw Con siderable Light on the Whole Question. There were no startling developments yesterday in the case of 0. W. Winthrop, arrested on suspicion of having caused the death of Mrs. Jennie Matthews. Captain Lees received by telegraph yes terday from Supreme Recorder Linn of Indianapolis all the written matter con tained in the application of Mrs. Matthews for a relief fund certificate made on Sep tember 11, 1894.

LATEST OAKLAND NEWS Frank M. Smith Discovers a Method of Preserving Fruit at Low Cost. 808 AX IS THE NEW AGENT. James P. Taylor Takes a Hand in the Litigation Over the City Wharf. Frank M. Smith, the capitalist, has just completed a series of experiments with borax as a fruit-preservative, which have led him to believe that he has made a new discovery of vast importance to the fruit interests of the State. Becoming convinced some time ago that I borax arrests vegetable decomposition he i packed a quantity of cherries in powdered ! borax and placet! them in his cellar- along j side' of a dish containing more cherries, \ which had not been treated with a pre- | serving agent. In three days the latter | unprotected fruit began to decay, and soon became unfit for food. Three weeks from the time they were treated the cherries in borax were opened and found to be in as good condition as when first packed. Smith then began operations on a larger scale, and shipped a barrel of cherries pack...

For, truth to tell, Private Mulvaney him self is at hand, ready to tell whoever has the ear for them the self-same tales he told to Kipling, and Kipling to the world; ready to tell even more than Kipling has told.
