10 GOVERNOR BUDD IS ANGRY. Objects to the Criticisms of the Horticultural Com missioners. A ROD IN PICKLE FOR THEM. Inquiry to Be Made as to the Ex penditure of Money Used by the Board. Governor Budd is at present confined to his house in Sacramento, suffering from a severe attack of rheumatism, but as soon as he is able to be around again he pro poses to discipline the members of the California Suite Board of Horticulture for disrespectful reflections upon him. At the last session of the Legislature Governor Budd vetoed an act appropriat ing $10,000 to the use of the Horticultural Commission because it was illegally drawn, being really two appropriations in one. His veto cast a gloom over the Commis sioners, and at a regular meeting they passed a resolution deploring his action. It was so worded, the Governor believes, as to place him in a false light before the public in general, and particularly before the fruit-raisers and farmers. He objects to being considered as an enemy of t...

LATEST OAKLAND NEWS. Ysaye's Idea for a Musical Conservatory Across the Bay. PROFESSORS FROM ABROAD. Louis Matheny Acquitted of Burg lary and Now at Lib erty. No definite conclusions have been reached regarding the forming in Oakland of a musical conservatory under the manage ment of M. Ysaye, the great violinist. Those interested in the matter have had several conferences with the virtuoso, but his plans were so broad that they could not decide without much deliberation, and other meetings must be held before any thing is decided. At the last meeting, at which Ysaye, his manager (Mr. Johnston), Mrs. Charles Webb Howard, Mrs. John L. Howard, Mrs. I. L. Requa, Miss Amy Requa, W. R. Davis, Q. A. Chase, John D. Metcalf, James Hamilton Howe and Horace A. Eedfield were present, Ysaye outlined what he thought should be the plan of the conservatory. He said that it was high time that there was a great American school of music, and that in case he was put at the head of one he would select ...

14 MAILS ON CABLE-CARS The Market-Street System Is Ready and Willing to Co-operate. OPINION OF THE POSTMASTER. He Thinks It Would Be an Improve ment, but Fears to Broach the Subject. The carrying of mails on streetcars is a question to which Postmaster McCoppin has given much thought. It would be a boon to outlying suburbs such as Rich mond and the Potrero, and more especially to places on the line of the San Francisco and San Mateo Electric road, such as Bay View, Oceanside and Colma. A similar system to that in operation in St. Louis, Boston and other Eastern cities might he adopted. The railroads could run a mail-car at certain hours during the day, and the clerks could sort and have the letters all ready for delivery at each stopping point on the way. In talking about the matter yesterday Postmaster McCoppin said: "I have dis cussed the matter time and again wity Mr. Doyle, my chief deputy. We recognize what a big saving there would be in the matter of time; but then there is th...

The last work is being done on the race, and Con tractor Allman is linishing a tide-gate, which he has built under the direction of Commissioner Pratchner, who conceived the idea. The water will have to be raised but a foot to flush the race, so if a weak spot in the aam shows itself the gate can be openrd and the overpressure immediately drained off. This evening the water was running through the waste way. This afternoon a rise of one foot was per ceptible.

Although noth ing has yet happened to prove that Count Ito contemplates an immediate retirement, his early disappearance from the political stage is regarded as a certainty, and the at tention of the official class is directed chiefly to questions bearing on the succes sion. Reports are received from Kioto that Count Yamagata wilJ be requested to form a cabinet, and that the position now held by Viscount Mutsu will be tendered to Vis count Aoki, the present Envoy to Germany, or to Count Okuma. As regards the heads of other depart ments, no curiosity is displayed. Every one feels that the interests of the nation will for some time main...

Passing through the veritably enchanted groves, fields and vineyards of California twice in the panorama of nature's devel opment, this year, the Italian refrain of my girlhood, which used to be a favorite song with me, came back in all of its melodious realization for America as I looked upon the marvelous transforma tion from bud and blossom in my first trip through your Hesperides, but a short time since, into the rapidly ripening fruit as I journeyed back to San Francisco a few days ago. When your orchards ana fields were all abloom with the pink and white blossoms and the tasseled grain which foretold the garnered store of full fruition that was to follow soon in the harvest home I jour neyed through the bewildering maze o that rich horoscope of nature that I might see with mine own eye...
