THE BAY DISTRICT TRACK TO BE ABANDONED. It Will Soon Be Subdi vided Into Many Resi dence Lots. THE INCOME TOO SMALL. Estimates Made as to the Grading and Filling In of the Land. THE NEW JOCKEY CLUB COURSE. Work on the Buildings to Be Begun Next Week and Completed by October. The Bay District racetrack will, in all probability, soon be a thing of the past. For some time past rumors have been afloat to the effect that the land included within its boundaries was to be subdivided and placed on the market for residence property. It was thought by many to be the outcome of a personal difference be tween Colonel Fred Crocker and Thomas H. Williams, the lessee of the property, and that Williams had a lease that would render any such movement on the part of the owners impossible within the next two or three years. The story had been told so often the horsemen shrugged their shoulders when the last rumor gained cir culation and dismissed it with the remark that it was the same old right betwe...

LIFE AT JOHANNESBURG. Five Thousand Men Starving at the Richest Gold Fields in the World. WONDERS OF THE TBANSVAAL. The Output Is 179,000 Ounces a Month and Negroes Must Walk In the Street. "Its the greatest gold-mining region in the world," said John E. Owens, a well known newspaper man who has just re turned from his travels. He was talking about Johannesburg, and he ought to be an authority on that corner of the world, for his ramblings in the Transvaal have been extensive. "Yes," he said, "the greatest sroJd mines in the world are now at Johannesburg, which, is in the Transvaal, South Africa. It is Mtuated on a high plateau at an alti tude of otKJO feet and lull miles from Cape town. Its population of about (JO.OOC (in cluding the African negro) is decidedly cosmopolitan. Men from all parts of the world have flocked there in their wild rush for gold." He continued : The mines of Johannesburg (Witwatersrandt, or more commonly known as the Rand") are now yielding more gold each mo...

14 SCHEEL'S ENGAGEMENTS Musicians Recall the Failure of His Los Angeles and Local Plans. AFTER THREE MONTHS ONLY. His Conservatory and Exploiting of the City of the Angels Abandoned. It is a few months since Fritz Scheel opened a conservatory on the European plan at 1118 Slitter street. The conductor was very particular about the European characteristic of his con servatory. It was not to be one of the mushroom-like American schools of music which endure but a day, but was to be founded on a solid basis of Art — with a capital A, and was to last for all time, and make the music of California better and nobler. In pursuit of this aim Scheel had his conservatory furnished in a way that re called music at every step. Pictures of the great composers gazed down from the walls, music-stands were übiquitous, and you could scarcely take a step without stumbling over a bass viol or a big drum. Down in the cellar were stored cases of gorgeous apparel, glittering with gold and silver tinsel. T...

16 AMONG THE RUINS OF THE BURNED DISTRICT. Hundreds Were Left Homeless by the Big Conflagration. SCENE OF DEVASTATION. The Area Covered by the Fire Was About Sixteen Acres. AID FOR THE SUFFERERS. The Extent of the Damage Wrought Partially Due to Defective Mains and Hydrants. Sixteen acres of smoldering debris mark the scene of Thursday's conflagration, and tell the sad story of many homeless people and a loss of about $1,200,000. Two hun dred and twenty buildings were swept away, of which the greater portion were dwellings of the poor-— old wooden build ings that burned like pine knots. The wreck and ruin along the path of this fierce whirlwind of flame is complete. Borne spots are swept as clean as a floor, while in others warped and dismantled machinery marks the site of manufactur ing establishments. From a point near the center of this fire swept area rises the brick walls of new St. Rose's Church, which was in course of con struction. What little of woodwork there was to burn w...

Eno., June 29.— Americans who happen to be in the city this week have been marveling among themselves over the apparent indifference of the Eng lish people to the change of government, which has taken place with even less dis turbance to metropolitan life than is caused by a day's meteorological vicissitudes. The contrast with the public excitement on the eve of a National election in the United States is so striking that most, ob ■ervers are gaining the impression that English democratic institutions are threatened by * : a greater a anger from popular disregard of the duties of the suf frage than exists in America. It is cer tainly true that pu...

2 torial division between the two associa tions should be effected. The same is true of the clients of the Chicago Associated Press. The consideration is even more po tent with them. By it the conditions are much more favorable for the starting of new papers in the West than in the East. The minutes of the joint conference com mittee show that everything was done by the representative of The United Press to ward meeting this desire, that it had been done honorably and fairly. The failure of the negotiations aud the unreasonable attitude of the rep resentatives of the Chicago Associated Press throughout merely show that while The United Press was ready to act in the interests of smaller papers the Chicago Associated Press was not. The result is that our clients in the small towns are satisfied that the fight should go on, while the clients of tne Chicago Associated Press are correspondingly discontented with the Chicago management of that organization. "Why was the Chicago Associated...

Requests the Visitors to Take Any thing He May Have Forgotten to Turn Over to Them. SANTA CRUZ, Cal., June 29.— The commercial travelers' special excursion train had the right of way on the broad gauge to-day and ran from San Francisco to Santa Cruz in three hours and ten minutes. The travelers and their companions, numbering altogether 150, did not permit the speed of the train to check the current of hilarity. On muslin banners stretched the length of the car were such mottoes as "You can josh us this time," "We are out for pleasure and not for business," "Santa Cruz is OK, and so are we, at times," "Wat-er carnival we will have at Santa Cruz," "When we are gone write us if your time will permit" and "Draw on us at sight and we will remit — our thanks."

6 ANOTHER LOTTERY FAKE Some of the Swindling Meth ods of the Louisiana Corn- pany Fraud. PLACING A CAPITAL PRIZE. Good Results of the "Call's" Cru sade-Publlclty Killing the In famous Traffic. That the Caix's crusade against the lot teries is bearing fruit is evidenced in many ways, but in no way so strikingly as in the large decline of business done by the agents and peddlers. The police report that within tCHE ENVELOPE THAT CONTAINED THE TICKET KNOWN TO BE A PBJZE-WINNEB. the last two weeks the traffic in lottery tickets has decreased fully 50 per cent. Any agent or peddler will tell you the Eame thing, but you will find it more diffi cult to talk to an agent or peddler now than formerly. And the cause of this is that there are fewer of these people in the business now, and that those who still sell lottery tickets do so more secretly than heretofore. The business is not being car ried on in the same brazen, open-handed manner it used to be. An agent will not sell yon lottery tick...
