FOOD FOR THOUGHT. How Taxes Can be Reduced and Revenue Increased, A Proposition Which. Should be Care fully Considered at Once. Judge H. O. Beatty, the President of the Funded Debt Commission, has un doubtedly given tho question of the city's finances more thought .and consideration than any other man in the community. The Record-Union has not agreed with him in some of the propositions he has I advanced, but has always given him j credit for sincerity and honesty of pur- ■ pose. A short time ago we called upon the Judge to give us his idea of how money <-ould be bad for needed improvements and still pay off the bonded indebtedness 1 ' the city rapidly. Yesterday he fur nished us with an outline of a plan which lie claims will reduce taxation, pay off the old funded debt (or provide for it) in about three years, and at the same time furnish 1300,000 for improvements. This | would establish the credit of the city and at the same time give as good water works, a complete sewage sys...

Westchester is a town in Westchester County, State of New York. It is one of the very old towns of the Empire State. About two and a half miles from the town C. P. Huntington owns a beautiful place known as "The Homestead." Some time ago he conceived the idea of giving to the town near by a handsome library and reading-room building, that such an in stitution might exercise a beneficent in fluence upon young men especially, and remove the excuse of those who have no homo and no proper place in which to spend their evenings. He wisely concluded that the safest of companions are good books; they never desert; they are so diverse that one can be had, even in most modest libraries, to suit any reasonable mood or respond to any special and worthy longing; to solac...

THIRTY YEARS AGO. Napa Presents a Sword to Major Edward McGarry. A Brave But Eccentric Soldier —Ills Bear River Battle—Singular Act of a Mariposa Teamster. There are many old Napaites who can recall the night of November 6, 1861, when the members of Pioneer Fire Com pany of that town presented Edward Bie- Garry with a handsome and valuable sword. McGarry had just received an appointment as Major in one of the vol unteer cavalry regiments, and it was ex pected that the regiment would be called East to take an active part in the war. McGarry was a Mexican War veteran, and one of the bravest men that ever wore an American uniform. Instead of iiis regiment going East, however, it was ordered out to Utah to relieve the regu lars doing Indian duty. Patrick Edward Connor of Stockton was the Colonel. Be fore tackling the Indians, however, a portion of the regiment, under Major Mc- Garry's command, was quartered at Camp Union at Agricultural Park, and while there Sacramentans had a good op t...
