Another case in which a woman had died from the effects of a criminal opera tion was brought to the attention of the authorities yesterday, and as a result of it Dr. R. S.

The woman died at 1203 Market street, where she had been living with her two children, a boy and a girl.

So the Democracy IsAM in a Muddle ■as to Who Will Get the Shoulder-Straps. SACRAMENTO, Cae., April 6.-Once more the Democracy is all muddled.

ART GOSSIP IN GENERAL Talk Among the Artists About the Double - Ended Committee. SKETCH CLASSES GOIXG OUT. Activity In the Studios and What Some Men Are Going to Exhibit. Unfortunately for true art in this city the workers persist in squabbling among themselves. If there was less rivalry ami more of a common art feeling there would be better pictures in the drawing-rooms of San Francisco. With the coming spring exhibition, now j only two weeks distant, there is more than likely to be made evident decided dis satisfaction over the action of the Art Association in making the jury the hang ing committee. Each side of the question has friends, but it is by both sides gen erally admitted that the lights in the Hop kins Art Institute galleries are not so good as they might be, taken all around as the home of an exhibition. Now the enemies of this new plan, which makes the jury Iso the hanging committee, say that if the jury accepts a picture the first one will get the best light and the o...

ITS FTTTTJKE IS PROMISING. ; The Growth of the Stanford Educa tional Institution Will Build Up a Thriving City.

6 FROM GREAT BRITAIN English People Are Kept Busy With Several Scandals. YET THEY CRITICIZE US. Londoners Interested in the Movements of William Waldorf Astor. COLLAPSE OF A GOLD MINE. Patti Will Make Another "Farewell" Appearance at a Greatly Re duced Salary.

But these events have not dis turbed the usual self-sufficient tendency to lecture the United States.

8 WAS WON BY BITTNER His Superior Playing Took the Tournament for Riverside. THE SCORE WAS SIX TO TEN. Burlingame Put Up a Strong Game, but Weakened on the Finish. The greatest polo game ever played in the West, and Herman Oelrichs says one of the greatest ever played in the United States, was witnessed yesterday afternoon at Burlingame.

The game from start to finish was contested inch by inch and the victory of Riverside was won after the closest rout the learn was ever put to. Cigarette is a mite of a pony. He was SCENE FROM THE PADDOCK. [Sketched by a "Call" artist.] ridden by Bittner and seemed to instinct tively follow the mind of his master. Bittner's play was brilliant throughout.
