A policeman's handicap would be a very fetching novelty. All of the riders would be stars. Badges were of little use yesterday, every one, from the owner up to the judge in the stand, sporting one of the regular admission cards in the lapel of his coat. Colonel Dan Burns watched the horse* warm up for the handicap, and finally concluded Hall's Tar and Tartar would do the trick. His owner was of the same opinion, and both went down together. If there ever was a "prize lobster," Mantellis one. and his trainer Is either the most incotn- petent trainer that ever put foot on a race track, or he does not run his horses to win, and I incline toward the latter. The ceremonies attending the fourth burial ■were simple but very impressive, with a no ticeable absence of flora! pieces. Little Cripple acting as the hea...

Vining of the Mar ket-street Railway Company, the carhouse of the Mission-street line at Twenty-ninth and Mission streets, and had examined the fenders now being used by the company. The committee found that the company provided but one article that resembled a fonder, and that was a longitudinal screen, which is fastened in front of the forward wheels and at least six feet from the front of the car. The committee asked Mr. Vin ing what the company placed the fenders so far back for. Mr. Yiniug explained that on the four wheeled cars...

The members of the Council for the Suppression of Saloons are jubilant over the action of the City Fathers in granting their petition for an ordinance closing the saloons of the city from 6 p. m.
