WOODWARD'S GARDEN LOTS They Sold at a Good Price Under the Auctioneer's Hammer. CURIOS THAT LOOK LONELY. The "Father of His Country" Ap pears Ghostly In His Stony Silence. The gigantic bust statue of Geoge Wash ington looked weird and ghostly while it stood alone as a curio on a vacant lot that once was a part of the famous Woodward's Garden, yesterday. The bright sunlightbf spring seemed to mock the weather-stained old statue while a Montgomery-street auc tioneer was shattering into fragments the old domain which has been under the stony eyes of the "Father of His Country" for seventeen eventful years. It did not require a severe strain on the imagination to discern a darkling frown on the features of the old image which was conceived, carved and erected by T. Gag liardi, the sculptor, in 1878. The gigan tic statue, standing on a pedestal twenty-five feet burn, was a great ■work of art in its day, and thousands of people on the Pacific Coast traveled Hundreds of miles to see it. To...

LATEST OAKLAND NEWS Police Officers Are on Guard at All the Lottery Agencies. PATRONS ARE DISCONSOLATE. Alameda and San Joaquln Railroad Incorporated— Taylor's Bunkers. In consequence of the instructions of Mayor Davie and of the exposure in the (.'all of his inefficiency, Chief of Police Schaffer has concluded to try to do his duty and put a stop to the Chinese lottery business, which has nourished in Oakland ever since he became the head of the Police Department. The stream of clerks and laborers which has been seen for years past going in and out of the agencies at certain hours of the day has ceased for the time being, and all because in front of the dens are stationed officers in uniform, whose presence warns both agents and players that the game is up for the present at least. In front of the agency at 419 Tenth street Officer Clark was stationed, and his prox imity to the den caused many an eager - gambler to turn aside with a disappointed look on his face and seek some other...

14 REJECTED THE LEASE Valley Railway Directors Refuse the State's Proposition. THEY WILL NOT HAVE CHINA BASIN Until Onerous Exactions in the Lease Are Removed or Modified. THEY SAY BONDS COULD NOT BE ISSUED. , The Company, Prohibited From Bonding the Road, Kicked at a Seawall. The lease of China Basin to the San Francisco and San Joaquin Valley Rail way Company as presented to the direc tors of the railroad yesterday by the State Board of Harbor Commissioners was not accepted. Nearly three hours of serious consideration was given the instrument, and the result was exactly as those people who are familiar with Valley road affairs had 7>redicted. Altogether too much was expected from the corporation of enter prising and public-spirited citizens who organized the groat enterprise that if not frustrated is destined to be the salvation of California, and for that very reason the directors were compelled to reject the lease. The directors met as usual in executive session, but they gav...

SANTA ROSA, Cal., May B.— Santa Rosa's carnival queen came to her by night, out of that undiscovered country where dwell the queens of merry-making, having arrived in the carnival city — the City of tin- Holy Rose — her way led through streets that were dimly lighted by 6omh. lanterns, strung in count less number- acro>s them overhead, adding to the mystery of her coming.

HAVE GRAVE FEARS Revenue Officers Worry Over the Tax on Incomes. UNEASY AS TO JACKSON. It Is Thought His Views Are Similar to Those of Jus tice Field. RETURNS ARE TO BE TEED T7P. New York Corporations Propose to Fight the Law to a Finish In the Courts. WASHINGTON. D. C. May 8.-Though there seems to be no real ground upon ■which to base a belief that Justice Jackson will vote with the four other Justices against the constitutionality of the income tax the impression generally prevails here that Justice Jackson will take the same view of the tax a? Field. The Internal Revenue officials, for some reason or other, are apprehensive of this. One of the prominent officers of the In- Revenue Bureau this morning said : '•It it ■ fa c Internal Revenue Bureau is apprehensive as to the result of the decision.

MILWAUKEE, Wip., May B.— The sev enth annual session of the Supreme Coun cil of the American Protective Association began to-day in Liberty Hall. The dele gates number in the vicinity of 400 and the greatest interest seems to prevail.

The bicyclists are trying to get their wheels into the heads of the Half-million Club. It is impossible to give the competing road a good start without giving it a good terminal. Opposition to the bicycles has become so developed in some Eastern towns that it is now referred to as a disease and called "bicyclophobia." We ...

Attorneys Ben Morgan and T. F. Garrity and J. B.

The friends of the Council for the Sup pression of the Saloon, which organization is responsible for the ordinance being in troduced, hissed Mr. Morgan at one point in his address.

The two obstacles which the committee appointed by the Merchants' Association has had to deal with are two franchises for railways, one held by Mayor Sutro and the other by the Market-street Company. Mr. Butro's franchise is on First avenue, from the Presidio south to the park, and he has practically promised Committee man to give up the franchise in com- pliance with the wishe3 of the property owners along the avenue. Mr. Stowe feels confident that the Market-street people will also abandon their rights in the in- teresl of the improyement of t lie avenue.

14 BUDD IS DISSATISFIED The Governor Warm on the Subject of China Basin. A PROVISION THAT WAS RESCINDED. The Valley Road's Attorney states His Objections to the Lease. ITS RESTRICTIONS SAID TO BE TOO SEVERE. No Chance to Bond the Road or Float a Debt Under the Pro visions. To say that the chief executive of the Btate was angry yesterday would be to put it mildly. Governor Budd was full of wrath. It was not because politicians assailed his point of vantage, either. There were very few seekers of places present at the meeting of the Harbor Commission ers yesterday morning. Governor Budd had announced that he would not see any body at the office of the Harbor Commis sioners, except the representatives of the Valley road. Much to the surprise of the gubernatorial mind, not even a representa tive of the road was present to meet him yesterday morning, and that is why the Governor's face was Hushed. The Gover nor had read the morning papers and he saw therein that th ; directors of the Val...
