THE STORM KING. He Again Rides Rough-Shod Over the Country. Rain ana Wind in the Valleys, and Snow On the Hills—The Rivers Booming. The farmers have ceased to pray for rain, and are beginning to experi ence some anxiety lest there should be too much for the good of their crops. The storm, which broke on Sunday night, was resumed again yesterday afternoon, and at a late hour last night the rain was still falling and the wind whistling through the naked trees and rattling windows, shutters, signs and all movable things outside the buildings. It Wiis learned at the railroad offices last night that the storm raged all day on the Sierra Nevadus yesterday along the line of the overland railroad, and snow fell as low down the mountains as Col fax. Last night an unusually heavy snow-storm, made more formidable by a driving wind, raged on the "hill" east of < ibid Run, and at Colfax rain was falling steadily. Reports from all of the station agents along the Central Pacific road, this side...

"OUR COUNTRY AND OUR CHURCH." A Sunday Discourse by Rev. R. M. Stevenson. He Sees Dancer In the Alleged Tend ency Toward Establishing Foreign Institutions Over Here. At the Westminster Presbyterian Church, on Sixth street, the pastor, Itev. R. K. Stevenson, on Sunday preached a sermon on the above subject. If there is any time in the year, he said, when it is fitting to consider the condition of our country, the dangers threatening it and what is being done for it, it is to-day, the anniversary of his birth, whom we proudly call "The Kather of Our Country." This is an "exceeding good land," a far grander and richer one than that which the Israelites described as "flowing with milk and honey;" reaching beyond the fairest dreams of Washington and his contemporaries. But after we have been in it many generations we are still in the situation that (Jod's ancient people were who stood on the threshold of Canaan. As there were difficulties before them which caused them to tremble, so ther...

6 SWIMMING BATHS. Sacramentans Will Enjoy the Lux ury This Year. Description of the Elegant Bathing Palace Sow Being Erected In Oak land—Fun Ahead for tho People of Sacramento. Oakland is now building a swimming ■bath that will be of infinite credit to her people. We present herewith a pict ure of the interior of tho structure, for which we are indebted to the San Francisco Journal of Commerce. The purpose of the Kecord-Uxiox is to quicken interest In the proposed swim ming bath for this city, and to give our readers some idea of what the bath is to be. The Sacramento establishment will not be such an elaborate affair as is now in process of erection in Oakland, which has many attachments and features not con templated here in the outset, nor neces sary in this climate, perhaps. But the i plunge bath here will be, we learn, of nearly as great area as that in Oakland, •which is 120 feet in length by 70 in width, I and marks the division of the mile into j forty-four parts for swimmin...

The Democrats mentioned also replied. Mr. Green applied epithets of "cur," "coward," etc., to Chandler. Pfflsbury ottered a resolution calling on Chandler for an apology or retraction. ...

STEAM STREET ROLLER. The Trustees Do Not Think One is Needed at Present. A Resolution of Intention Passed to Grade P Street from Front to Thirty-first. At the meeting of the Board of City Trustees held yesterday morning, a com munication was received from the Presi dent of tho Improvement Association, submitting the matter of the purchase of a steam roller, lor the Trustees' consider ation. The proposition is to require street contractors, at their own expense, to roll the gravel with the steam roller, which shoiidd weigh not less than twenty ;ons. Trustee MeLaughlin said he believed the roller would be a good thing for use on the streets, but just at present there was net enough money in the fund to purchase one. The Mayor thought it would cost too much and suggested that the Street Com mis-ioiii.-r could get along without it. The communication was ordered on rile.

6 FARM AND ORCHARD. The Matter of Making Experi ments on tile Farm. Trce-rinnting In StiflT Snbsollss—TTot- Bcil Managemont-Coops for Scttlns Hens- Mating Fowls Jor Breeding— The Hollyhock—Farm Xotes. i In many respects the planting of trees in an orchard is different from orna mental tree-planting, and it is in some respects dangerous to imitate the planting out of small ornamental plantations on laWBS or parks. It is quite true that tree planting is just tree-planting anywhere, hut the underlying conditions may be nxcb that very different methods must be ■dopted to give successful results, ami these are not always obvious to the ordi nary observer. In orchard-planting, es pecially on a large scale, the elements of economy and final success aro the im portant factors; in ornamental planting, present beauty must be maintained, even if remote results have to be kept in abey ance. In places where the BOi&ce soil is thin and the subsoil tei!:u-ious, digging holes is to be avoided a...

Only One Senator and One Representa tive Speculated In the White Metal, But their Purchases Were Not Made "Wlille tho Bill Was Pending—Owen by Alluded to In the Report as a Romancer. •Special to the Record-Untow. Washington, Feb. 25.—The report of the Silver Pool Investigating Committee •was made to the House to-night. It is unanimous. It reviews the testimony briefly. Owenby is alluded to as a ro mancer who is imaginative. Senator Cameron's silver purchase is €"eferred to as having been made and the silver sold before the bill passed. Repre «entative Taylor bought after the bill be came a law, and when no additional leg islation was looked for. The report says it is but just to say that the statement made by a Congressman in debate in the House on June 24th last, to the effect that he had been approached to join silver pools, furnished some excuse for...

The ballot reform bill on Tuesday in the State Senate met with an obstruction that surprises and discourages its friends —its consideration was put over for two days. Every Senator voting against tak ing up the bill is a Republican, every Senator voting to consider it is a Demo crat. Yet it is a measure upon which party lines should not be drawn, nor can they be legitimately invoked, for there is no party politics in it. It is purely a question of statesmanship and of the furtherance and betterment of the pro cesses through which self-government is accomplished. The Democratic party at its last State Convention pledged itself tor the reform without any reser...

SUNDAY LAW AGAIN. Rev. Tindall Answered by an Oak land Man. He Assorts That California Is Not the Most Immoral State in the Union. Eds. Record-Union : That class of min isters who are set for the advocacy of a Sun day law on any or every pretext, seem to h:\ve a mania for libeling California. They essay to do God's service by con tinually proclaiming to the world that California is the most immoral State in the Union. Some of thorn openly de clare that they advise their Eastern friends not to come to California on this account. And what evidence do they adduce in support of the allegation? None what ever, save the fact that the State has no Sunday law. One of these gentlemen, when before the joint meeting of the legislative Com mittees on Public Morals, solemnly charged that there is no redress In the California law for the disturbance of re ligious worship. This, in face of the fact that there is not a Stato in the Union which has & mote strenuous law on this subject than Secti...

4 THE TERM "CYCLONE." Signal Observer Barwick Contends Its Use is Harmless. He Would Apply It to All Storms That Move In Other Than Straight Lines of Travel. Eds. Record-Union: Noticing the article this morning in reference to the manner in which lieutenant I-'inley uses the word "cyclone." instead of the word "storm," nml that ,:;i! word "cyclone" is 8 terror to the people of Kansas, lowa and other 'Western States east of the Rooky mountains, I bejj leave to Kay that the torm brings no fear to Eastern people; but the word "tornado" does. When a tornado does occur it is always on the south sido of a storm (cyclonic) center, and always in the southeast quadrant. Tornados seldom, if ever, occur in winter. Speaking about tho word "cyclone," I take great pleasure in ap pending tho following description and origination of the word, as taken from a most valuable and useful work called "Piddington's Sailor's Horn-Book on the Law of Storms, etc.," by Henry l'idding ton, President of Marino ...

6 FOR AGED WOMEN. Annual Meeting of the Marguerite Home Directors. The annual meeting of the Directors of this institution was held yesterday at the "Home" on Seventh street, it being the birthday of the founder, Mrs. Margaret E. Crocker. From the report of the Matron, Miss Fanny Safford, it appears that sixteen old ladies are at present be ing supported by the trust fund. There have been four admissions during the past year, and one death. Miss Safford further says that several times during the year the "Home" has been honored by visits from its esteemed benefactress. That her great heart is still in accord with the objects and purposes for which she founded the "Home" seven years ago yesterday, has been shown in many ways. When certain needs were ascertained by her she promptly placed the necessary means at the Directors' dis posal, with results which have l>een most gratifying. Acknowledgments are made to the pro prietors of the Sam Francisco Examiner, and the RBOOKD-UsiOH and...

No assurance can be given that the two interests referred to will be represented upon it.
