EVERYBODY WILL EAT RAISINS. fr I April 30 Hat Been Named as Day When Raisins Will be Served Gratis. The raisin men of California, have decided on April 30th as "Raisin Day" and are organizing to make it a success. The cooperation and assistance of railroads, steamship lines, hotels and mercantile establishments throughout California will be asked. A meeting was held in Fresno on March 10th attended by representatives from over the valley of the raisin interests and by representatives of the Southern Pacific Company. At this meeting the executive committee of the Chamber of Commerce decided to raise $35,000 or more to tell in simple language how much good it will do the average citizen to «at raisins and how to prepare them. This on Raisin Day, with the hope that thereafter they will help to dispose of the 25,000 tons of luscious fruit Fresno has on hand. The campaign is not confined to California, but it is to 'be pressed vigorously throughout the East. The Southern Pacific Company has agreed that all of its traffic forces shall work to make Raisin Day a success. In all of its stations, in all its suburban trains, in all Its ferry boats, on all its Atlantic steamers, it will put up posters advertising "Raisin Day. On all Southern Pacific diners and in all eating stations raisina are to be served gratis on Raisin Day with •compliments of the California raisin growers. The other Harriman lines •will cooperate and without doubt take similar action. The lecture bureau of the Harriman lines in the East, 'under charge of Mr. J. W. Er•win, will have a series of lectures delivered on the use of' California rai- fiins and lectures delivered on the use of California raisins and the ob. servance of Raisin Day, reaching proo- ably 25,000 people. The San Francisco hotels have al;'*?,.fly signified their intention o" aiding, and will no doubt take concerted action. A million raisin primers and with recipes will be distributed over the "United States, telling people how to 'serve raisins and -instructing them in their uses. Every in California will receive a request to help observe Raisin Day by making his friends and patrons more familiar •with one of California's choicest products. Altogether it is expected to •discount Thanksgiving records .on April 30r,h, and make the people of She "United States generally sit up and take notice of California raisins. Subsequently an advertising campaign will be undertaken to keep raisins to the front throughout the •country. The work is to be done by the Fresno Chamber of Commerce, with the cooperation of the passenger department of the Southern Pacific under the direction of the General Passenger agent. No. 13,273.

Our Home Senator Has Achieved Victory Over Public Land Grabbers. .An associated Press dispatch to the loading dailies of this state says that •California has achieved a victory over the land grabbers in securing the enactment of the Thompson bill which provides "for the sale of all state lands at public auction. Script representing land sold as 'base,' and which the purchasers, upon making a proper application, will be entitled to exchange for government reserve landa, will be auctioned, the minimum price to be $1.2C per acre." This is a feather in the cap of our home senator. lie was strongly supported by the surveyor general, the attorney general of the state and by Governor Glllet. Under this ac-t state lands can be bought from the state direct through the surveyor general's office.
