HAVE NO KICK COMING. The Selling Race War Goes Merrily On at the Dis trict Track. DOWRY TO THE JOCKEY CLUB. The Winning of The Lark Proved an Unprofitable One for His Owners. President Williams o/f the Jockey Club smoked several cigarettes more than usual yesterday .and his face was beaming with smiles. 'And why not? . Six hundred and fifty dollars coniing . in f rom an unlooked for source would have a tendency to make almost any one smile — even the president of a jockey club. The dowry to the Jockey Club, of which President Wil liams is guardian, came in the form of bid-up money from the selling races and no doubt was highly acceptable. The first donation came in the second race,, when Charley Baldwin of the upper ten, one of the Blingum boys, just for a lark, doncher know, entered his horse Frondeur in a selling race ' against some goats owned among the lower five. En tered for $100 he was bid up to $500, so the deuced funny joke cost Charley $400, but as the young society man ha...

8 IT'S VIRTUE IS A FAULT The New Revenue Law Will Not Be Enforced This Year. A LOOPHOLE IS DISCOVERED. Auditor Broderick Finds and Seizes It— The Law Full of Flaws. City and County Attorney Creswell has before him for solution probably the most important question that he has been called upon to answer since he took office. The question is, "Does the act amending the revenue law as it relates to the collec tion of taxes in San Francisco take effect in the present fiscal year?" If it does it ■will leave the city and county treasury empty for three months— which means the suspension of the government for that .period. Any embarrassment of the machin ery for collecting the taxes at this time i? an aggravation of a very aggravated Situation in view of the $211,500 worth of debtors and a threatened deficit under any circumstances of $300,000. But in case Mr. Creswell should decide that to his mind the law is in force at this minute some means would at once be taken to secure the judgment ...

THAT MINT PATRONAGE Mr. Daggett's Action Has Brought a Storm About His Ears. DEMOCRATS TAKING SIDES. Long Telegrams Were Sent to Cleveland and Carlisle Yesterday. The fight between the factions of the local Democracy in regard to the Mint patronage has only just begun. Already the battle rages fiercely, and the prospects are that it will be fought to the bitter end. When Superintendent Daggett of the Mint announced that he would discharge certain employes of that institution be cause their relatives in the State Legisla ture could not see that Mr. Daggett was t^he most available Democrat for the United States senatorship he apparently forgot that his sentences of decapitation had to be approved by the authorities at Washington before they became effective. He also overlooked the fact that others be sides himself possessed influence at the national capital. These opposing in fluences have been set to work, and the merry war is on in earnest.

LATEST OAKLAND NEWS The Municipal League Figur ing on a Garbgee Crematory. GENERAL C. W. KELLEY FINED. Frank Cattell's Suit Against the City Begun Before Judge Frick. Shall the city of Oakland build a garbage crematory of its own or shall it go on per mitting the refuse to be dumped where it may be a menace to the public health? was the question discussed at the meeting of the Citizens' Municipal League yesterday. Health Officer Dr. Frank L. A*dams dis cussed the question at length, showing that the effect of garbage cremation in other cities had been to reduce the death rate to a large extent, particularly in re gard to typhoid tever, which had practi cally been eradicated in some instances. He said that the question of the disposal of garbage lay between throwing it into the bay and turning it adrift or cremating it. He was heartily in favor of the latter plan as the cheapest and most effective that could be devised. The Board of Health had calculated that a city crematory could b...

14 MANY EVASIVE ANSWERS Cus Spreckels Dodged Lead ing Questions With Great Agility. HE FAILS TO RECALL FACTS. Will Not Show Income or Outlay Unless So Ordered by the Court. The inquiry in the Spreckels slander suit regarding the business transac tions of C. A. Spreckels, plaintiff in the case, with his father, Claus Spreck els, defendant, and the Spreckels Sugar Refinery in Philadelphia, was re sumed in the offices of Delmas & Short ridge yesterday morning. Mr. Shortridge did the questioning in a most pointed manner, and C. A. Spreckels made as great a success in not giving definite answers as he did last Saturday. His supply of an ewers such as "I do not recall," "I have no such recollection," and "I do not remem ber," seemed inexhaustible. But he was worried withal. Mr. Shortridge tried in many ways to get some definite statements concerning . the shortage of $200,000, but the witness persistently took refuge behind the evasive answers, "I do not recall," and "The verbal - sta...

WEARY OF JOSEPH JR Mormon Apostles Tire of Waiting for the Revelation. NEBVES AT A TENSION. There Seems to Be No Way of Filling Vacancies in the Quorum. THE PROPHET AND THE ANGEL. An Interesting Conversation From Which Sprung the Church of the Saints. KANSAS CITY, Mo., April 10.—Con . trary to expectations, the quorum of twelve and Joseph Smith did not bring any •revelations from the other world to-day. If the quorum does not have a revelation soon concerning some of the great matters of church government some of the saints and all the laity will grow very weary. Since the beginning of this conference the most intense interest has been shown in . all. of these sessions, the principal attrac tion being Joseph Smith, son of the great prophet and himself a seer of highest ! standing. But the head of the church has not revealed anything. Beyond presiding over the business ses sions he has brought nothing to alleviate the- anxiety concerning the vacancies Which have existed for forty yea...

4 AMERICAN TURF CONGRESS An Interesting Ruling in Re gard to Future Meet ings. THE OWNERSHIP OF SIMMONS. An Investigating Committee Re ports That the Horse Was Held by Men Not in Favor. ' MEMPHIS, Tex*., April 10.— The Amer ican Turf Congress reassembled at \ noon to-day at the Peabody Hotel, and after a • short session took a recess until evening to attend the races. In the matter of the location of future meetings it was decided that they be held at the city in which a majority of the mem bers are present at the time meetings are to be called. That was the reason for the selection of Memphis as the meeting place this year, instead of Cincinnati, where all- the previous meetings of the congress have been held. The committee appointed to inquire into the ownership of the horse Simmons, which was matched for a race with Dr. Rice at the St. Louis Fair-grounds racetrack in the spring, made its report. Its finding was that an interest in the horse was held by men not in favor with the c...

Fitzgerald to the', office of Labor Commissioner has caused something of a commotion in the ranks of organized labor. Irrespective of politics,, the trade unionists almost to a man vigorously denounce the selection as injudicious, an insult to labor and explain able only upon the hypothesis of political pull. They say that the place has been given to a professional politician, who knows nothing of and who cares nothing for organized labor man who will follow in the footsteps of his predecessors, and draw a fat salary for ornamenting an office that ought to be abolished. Some there are who take a different view \ of the matter, and say, "Let us see what manner of man this is whom the Governor hath chosen ; let us not condemn him too soon." Following are given a number of inter views on the subj...
