Santa Monica Grants Privileges to the Proposed Road From Pasadena. LOS ANGELES, Cal., June 18.—Alex ander Burness, the principal witness against Wong Chuey, the Chinaman who was convicted last week of murder in the eecond degree for the killing of little Ah Suey, was shot at to-night while returning from a theater.

When Shaw cut that wide swath turning into the stretch he ruined Miss Ruth's chance of winning.

THE ANTI-LOTTERY CRUSADE IS SUCCESSFUL. Much Good Resulting From a Knowledge of the Many Frauds. FUTILE INDIGNATION OF AN AGENT. A Bogus Lottery Company De nounces the Federal Statutes. ATTORNEY BEN E. HASKELL HAS A PLAN. The Police Search Metzger & Franklin's Quarters In tho Nucleus Building:. Whether the Call's anti-lottery agita tion is bearing fruit can bo best decided, perhaps, by making the rounds of the lot tery-dealers and peddlers, and inquiring from them the condition of their business. If you do this you will soon be convinced that the lottery traffic— as widespread and as dangerous to the community as it still is — has not the same grip on the public morals that it had six months ago. Public sentiment on the lottery question has changed — or perhaps it has only been aroused.

A NEW GUN MANUFACTORY The Ostrander People Will Probably Come to San Francisco. THE PLANT NOW IN BOSTON. Sacramento Makes a Strong Bid, but Colonel Cochran Pre fers This City. A very determined effort is being made to bring the entire plant of the Ostrander Repeating Gun Company, now located in Boston, to San Francisco. If the project ors of the enterprise meet with the proper encourage incut from the people they think should interest themselves in the matter the plant will be well on its way to this coast within the next sixty days. The gun is the invention of Willis H. Ostrander of Merced and is in many re spects the most wonderful double-barrel gun yet invented. Except for a little leather covering some eight inches above the breech the Ostrander gun does not differ materially, so far as appearances go, Irom the ordinary hammerless breech loader. In its mechanical arrangement, however, the difference lies, and this is so . erfect that wherever shown the true sportsman has at once...

LATEST OAKLAND NEWS The Mayor Revokes His Ap pointments on the Board of Health. FOUND TO BE INELIGIBLE. The Southern Pacific Company Raises Some New Points In a Stop-Over Suit. Mayor Davies has settled the score with Drs. Mi«s Shuey and Beckwith for their disregard of his wishes in the matter of the appointments of the Board of Health. When the Mayor took office he appointed Drs. Shuey and Beckwith, expecting that the patronage of the board, which consists of a number of lucrative offices, would be dispensed with, some regard for his wishes in the matter. At first the board seemed to be willing to do the Mayor's bidding, and Secretary Paul Schaffer was replaced by E. W. Thurman, a friend of the chief executive. There the obedience stopped, however, for at the last meeting of the board the mem bers kicked over the traces entirely and made such havoc with the positions under their control that the Mayor, who was enjoying himself at Santa Cruz, hurried back from the seaside to stem the...

The wide-spreading pond and the mill that stood by it. The bridge and the rock where the cataract fell; The cot of my father, the dairy-house nigh it, And c'en the rude bucket that hung in the well— The old oaken bucket, the iron-bound bucket, The moss-covered bucket which hung in the well. That moss-covered vessel I hailed as a treasure, For often at noon, when returned from the field, I found it the source of an exquisite pleasure, The purest and sweetest that nature can yield. How ardent I seized it, with hands that were slowing...
