Monday: For North ern California—Light, scattering showers and slightly warmer in ttic Northern and Central portions; fair and stationary temperature in tl.e southern portion. OCIIE SUPREME COURT DECISION. There has been no time in which citi zens who have reflected upon the princi ples underlying free government, and the safeguards to life and porperty and their enjoyments, have entertained any doubt as to what the final decision con cerning the legality of the San Francisco Cirand Jury must be. Sensible men know that the essential question is not one of boodle, the punishment of evil doers, or the breaking up of vicious rings; these desirable ends are but incidental to the vital question involved, which is one lying at the very root of liberty. It is infinitely better that ten thousand rascals deserving the halter go unhanged, than that a...

SWIFT SKATERS. A Dead Heat Between the Champions Andrews and King. Miss Cameron, tne San Francisco Flyer, Defeated by Miss Whip ple of This City. The skating rink was packed Saturday evening, and the management afforded an excellent evening's entertainment. The two principal events of the even ing were a half-mile race between the ••hampion lady skaters —Miss Cameron of San Francisco and Miss Whipplo of this city—and a mile dash between Charles Andrews, the Pacific Coast champion, and Arthur King, the local flyer. Both contests were very exciting, and the im mense audience, unable to bridle its en thusiasm, howled itself hoarse. The ladies' contest earne off first. They took what is known as a "flying start," instead of starting from a stationary posi tion, and swept around the big hall like flying phantoms. Both ladies are very last skaters, particularly Miss Whipple. The latter took the lead at the start and held it handily for five laps. Then the San Francisco young lady made a d...

The last Legislature passed an Act re quiring the execution of criminals con demned to death to take place in one of th" State Prisons. The wisdom of this law no sensible person has ever ques tioned. A few idiotic objections were raised to the bill while it was pending, but they came from men who ought to have been ashamed of the propositions they advanced, but which unquestionably will now be renewed. Executions at county seats are bad in every respect, bad for the criminal and worse for the people. They demoralize the public pulse; they stimulate morbid tastes; they rob the execution of the terror it should inspire in evil-doers; they operate most injuriously upon youth; they enable sickly sentimental women t...
