LATEST OAKLAND NEWS The Board of Equalization Granted Five Days' Exten sion of Time. NO REQUEST MADE FOR IT. A Contest of the Estate of Mrs. Elizabeth R. Cook Will Be In augurated. Assessor Dalton was astonished to learn yesterday that, without the request of the County Board of Equalization, the State board "has given the former body a five-day of time in which to receive peti tions lor the lowering of the assessments just unished by Mr. Dalton. The time limit set by law expires on Jlonday next, and none of the large corpo rationswhose assessments were increased had put in their petitions. This was con sidered singular, in view of the fact that in order to have them considered three days' notice must be given. Had the extension not been granted it would have been im possible for the corporations to have had their assessments equalized. What is bothering Mr. Dalton is unsatis fied curiosity as to the identity of the per son who had the extension granted, Iso mention of such a reques...

It Prevents the Starting of the Vast Machinery In the Power-House. SACRAMENTO, Cal., July 12.-There were watchers in Sacramento last night, patient watchers, who, without murmur, waited until the wee sma' hours of the morning in hopes that the great wheels in the electric power-house at Sixth and H streets would have the power applied to them and give even one revolution. Those wheels meant so much to that waiting croup of men, composed as it was of all grades, from the Jiumble laborer to the wealthy capitalist. To the laborer and artisan it meant lu crative employment; to the merchant in creased patronage; to the capitalist return for the immense capital invested in a work whose beginning dated back nearly ten years. To him it meant the realization of the object, to the perfection of which he had bent every faculty at hi...

With admirable patience he hunted among the grass for the "bon bouche," which was the piece de resistance of this obstinate gour met. The rirst one he caught and dropped on the surface of the pool the trout rose to and took with avidity. It would be pleas ant to record, after this intelligent labor, j the landing of a big fish, but the unpleas ant fact remains that the naturalist-angler lost a trout, certainly through no fault of his own, but because of a big piece of drift wood, around which on the first dash the trout foaled the line. Still the efh'cacy of dabbing with thr> natural fiy was demon strated, and next to the long "cast there is no more interesting or delightful method of fishing.
