The question of authority between the executive and lit erary committees, which > involved the placing of the name of the Rev. Anna Shaw on the literary programme, has been settled, and Miss Shaw will speak for half an hour to the audience that , gathers in the Woodward's Gardens pa- '■ vilion on the Nation's natal day, eschew ing, however, all reference to the question of woman's suffrage.

Cooper, the executive committee on Sunday sent a peremptory order to the literary committee to the same effect. In reply to this last communic...

The investigation of Japanese cooly labor matters was resumed yesterday by Labor Commissioner E. L. Fitzgerald "and Deputy Cleve L. Dam. While the inquiry was confined principally to one witness, many interesting points were brought out, in spite of the witness' desire not to tell what he knows about the contract system which is now tilling the agricultural and horticultural districts of the State with cheap cooly laborers. One interesting feature was this witness' CLEVE L. BAM. [From a recent photograph.] statement concerning wages in Japan. [ The farmer, he stated, earns on an average 40 sen or 20 cents a day. Below the farmer are other workers, who earn about 25 sen or about 12 and 13 cents a day and pay for their own board and lodging.

LATEST OAKLAND NEWS The Wife of Captain Poleman of the Oregon Sues for Divorce. CHARGES HIM WITH CRUELTY. Numerous Property - Holders Are to Be Arrested on Warrants To- Day. When Captain Poleman of the Oregon Railway and Navigation Company's steamer Oregon, now on her way down from Portland, lands in San Francisco he will be served with notice that his wife, who is the daughter of Captain K. Van Oterendorp o! the Oriental and Occidental steamer Zeaiandia, has sued him for a di vorce. The ground on which Mrs. Polenian sues for a separation is extreme cruelty, and the story she tells of her domestic dif ficulties with the peppery master mariner would seem to indicate that he is far from being a model husband.

The complaint in the suit was riled yesterday by Attorney A. A. Moore, who represents the plaintiff. II rs. I'oleman was no...

12 DUN OF THE OLDEN TIME. Wreathed in Courtesy Uncultivated by the Present Generation. It is often remarked that with the fore fathers courtesy was a studied art that recent generations do not have time to cultivate. This is quite well illustrated, says the Utica Observer, in the following letter, which was shown a reporter a short time ago: Whites Town. June 16, 1798. Honored Sir: A few months ago you did me the honor to become my debtor for the purchase of froods at my store, amounting to li dollars find 18 pence. 1 have no doubt that a smqll transaction of this nature may have slipped your mind, and I trust you will pardon and excuse me for mentioning it to you upon this occasion.

VOLUME LXXVIII.-NO. 12. QUEEN ANITA RULES CALIFORNIA'S VENICE. SANTA CRUZ, Cal., June 11.— Ah, these merrymaking days— this riot of good feeling! How contagious it all is! The swell and pulsing of music — the glitter of sword and tinsel in the sun, the mingling of cardinal reds and stately purples, the proud step and champing of high-bred j horses conscious of the occasion, the Hut- j terof flags, the gay attire of the crowds upon the streets, the holiday that is in the air — how it quickens the blood and swells and gladdens the heart and lightens the step. Here is Santa Cruz in the full fever of it. Her stately streets are swaying from every upright her colors of white and gold. Her people are wearing the badge of merry making, and her queen is Anita, who has issued her first and only edict, the banish ment of care out of the city until the dawn of Sunday. "Laugh and the world laughs with you," and by the truth of this famous old Jine every railroad entering Santa Cruz is bringing ...

2 C. W. Doyle's still unpublished opera, "The Masque of the May Queen": The Quern of Santa Cruz, Love's \icar, she. BedecKed with Venus' charms and witchery, Did late convey her mandate and high will That I should venture my apprentice skill To speak in Cleopatra's praise— a dangerous task— And weave into llie limits of a masque Her high emprise and loveliness and wit, And treat of what the immortal Will hath writ And made his very own. I may not dare To trespass on his bounas. O Queen most fair. Forgive my lack of skill, but I would say That as his burning fame, and as the day, Excel my darkness and the darkest night. So do your youth and beauty, fresh and bright, Kclipse her smiles and throw In shade the while The charms of that famed "Serpent of Old Nile"; Becausp sweet innocence and modesty and truth Have kissed your sweet heart fair and Wessed yonr youth. Beauty and innocence in lowliest maid Throw crowned and jeweled vice Into the shade; And when I see them featured in your fa...

NO JOY OVER PEACE. The Japanese People Nursing a Deep Dis content. FRESH TROUBLE FEARED. Ominous Rumors Discussed With Peculiar Morbid Avidity. KOREA STILL IN CHAOS. Million of Dollars' Worth of Prop erty Destroyed In the Chinese Riots. TOKIO, Japajt, May 21 (per Empress of Japan, via Victoria, B. C, June 11).— The people nourish in suspense their dis content with the methods by which peace has been secured, and, as a whole, refuse to participate in any display of gratifica tion at the close of the war. In many quarters doubts are expressed as to the durability of the settlement with Russia, Germany and France. The news papers are not permitted to speak freely, but the majority of those who escaped sus pension hint at the probability that fresh entanglements are presently to be dis closed. It does not appear that their sus picions have any material foundation, yet they are certainly shared by the commu nity in general. Government securities continue de pressed, and the war bonds are...
