14 EIGHT FOR MONOPOLY, FOUR FOR THE PEOPLE Scandalous Betrayal of Public Interests by Supervisors. FRANCHISE GIVEN AWAY The Soiid Eight Concedes Not a Single Point in Favor of the City. JEEKED BY THE GALLERY. A Seance Not Soon to Be Forgotten in the History of Local Legislation. What there is to tell this morning about the granting to the Market-street Railway Company by the Board of Supervisors of a franchise to run out to the new racetrack, over Ocean House road and Sunnyside avenue, is wholly descriptive. "What they did was told by The Caix of Bundav morning under a heading of "What They "Will Do." But they did it with "a vengeance" that could hardly liave been anticipated, even with the record they had established. No, there is this to be said in addition— Alphonse Hirsch voted straight along for monopoly and against the people's inter ests with the delinquent seven. It will be remembered that The Call held Mr. Hirshe's case open for him. For nearly two hours yesterday after noo...

FRESNO, Cal., July 9.— The contest be tween the residents in the Sunset Irriga tion District,, who are in favor of building the $1,500,000 canal, and those who charge corruption and extravagance, was ended, as far as is now known, this afternoon.

THE UNIVERSITY IS FREE Regents Are Opposed to Charg ing Admission and Tui tion Fees. A DEFICIT IN THE FUNDS. Readjustment of Expenses In the Various Departments — The Lick Observatory. The board of regents of the State Uni versity got somewhat tangled up at their annual meeting yesterday in the discus sion of finances. It was not a question touching upon monometallism or bi metallism such as is agitating the minds of political party leaders throughout the country, but it was in relation to the financial status of the university. It appears that the institution of learn ing which is the pride of the State is "in a hole" temporarily to the extent of about $17,000, and, according to some of the re gents, the prospects are not very bright for the coming year regarding a threatened in crease of this indebtedness, unless some decisive action was taken to stem the ad verse tide. The regents had two propositions to face, viz.: First, to reduce the expenses of the univ ersity so that they ma...

A Dramatic Scene Between Father and Son Enacted In the City Prison, There was a dramatic scene in the City Prison yesterday in which the actors were Lorenzo Stenhouse and his son Garner S. Stenhouse and Private Detective Stil well. What led up to the scene was the old story of a middle-aged man's infatuation for a young girl, ending in desertion of his wife and family. Some months ago Stenhouse, accom panied by his wife Flora and their two sons, arrived in the City from Salt Lake City. As they did not rent a house their furniture was stored in a warehouse.

BIGGER MAINS DEMANDED Chief Sullivan's Scathing Re port on the City's Lack of Water. THE LESSON OF THE FIRE. Wore Hydrants and Pressure Needed— Spring Valley to Blame for Blk Losses. At the meeting of the Fire Department Committee- of the Board of Supervisors yesterday afternoon the report of Chief D. T. Sullivan was received. It was one of the most sensational documents the com mittee has yet had offered for its consider ation, and it had the indorsement of the Board of Fire Commissioners. Chief Sullivan reviews the big fires m the City from Christmas a year ago, naming the loss in each and laying the blame on the Spring Valley Water Company.

12 NEWS OF COAST RANCHES. Practical Demonstration of the Profit in Small Farms. THE CHEAP LANDS OF NEVADA. Colonies to Populate the Sagebrush State May Be One of Early Results. In Idaho the cayuse, or Indian pony, is now regarded as a pest, and the Lewiston Teller thus refers to that once valued an imal: The Indian horses spread all over the ranges and are not confined within the reservation limits. It is estimated that 15,000 worthless wild ponies range unre strained over the hills of this country and devour the good bunch grass. These cayuses each eat enough good fodder to fatten a four-year-old steer, and one steer is worth more than ten glass-eyed broncos. If we could enact a law to de clare every pony of an assessed value of less than $1 a public nuisance it would add materially to the prosperity of this country. There are 875,517 bearing and non-bear ing fruit trees in Placer County, which makes over 8000 acres planted, and there are 775 acres planted to grapevines, making a t...
