AND WINES Report of the Yiticultnral Commission ThelndnstrySufferingFrom Depression Beasons for Existing Conditions Outlook for This Season The annnal report of the State Board of Viticulture which bas just left the State Printers hands contains much valuable information concerning tbe present condition of the Tine and wine industry throughout tbe Etate In addition to tbe reports of the regular officers statistics relative to the number ot vineyards acreage of vines the acreage in bearing and other important data have been gathered in Alameda Sonoma Santa Clara and Southern California counties by reliable authorities Considerable space is given in appendix to the Midwinter Fair display which is embellished with half tone pictures of tbe principal features in the late exhibition Of the 30 000 appropriated for the support of the Commission for 1S94 95 14 17311 has been expended leaving 15 820 89 available for next year expenses President Doyle says that viticulture bas during tbe biennial period now closing been much depressed and at present is probably at the lowest point ever touched since it was first established in this State More wine is annually pro duced than the present market will take and prices have consequently gone down to a point where production is conducted at a steady loss to the wine farmer Tbe situation is thus a Terr tad one for viticulture is intrinsically an industry of tbe highest interest to the State as supporting a denser population than any other branch of agriculture and it is not too much to sav that Lallfornia is better adapted to it than any other known region ot the world Two Tears ago notwithstanding the fact that that market requires a peculiar form of cooperage not made in tbe United States or else a loss of that actually used our wine growers looked nopeiuiiy to France as a market for our surplus and a single large sh pment was successfully made there Had our Government of fered any reciprocal advantage to French products there is excellent reason to believe that our wines could have secured free entry into France to the incalculable advantage Of our State and those were the days of reciprocity But either because there was no one in authority or having its ear in Washington who took an interest in tbe question or perhaps by reason of difficulties unknown to us the effort was not made and a new French Ltriff then adopted put an end to that hope probably forever Our winegrowers were also sanguine that tbe great Columbian Exposition at Chicago would afford tbe occasion for a display of our products which would not fail to bring them to the favorable notice of the civilized world and great hopes were indulged in on this basis The State and several of tbe counties incurred con siderable expense to make a creditable displav of our varied agricultural and bor ticultural products Whatever result of good may have attended these efforts in other departments it is certain that so far as viticulture is concerned they were a dirmal failure During the summer just past an effort was made to secure belter prices for wine by the organization of a syndicate to con trol tbe bulk of tbe crop and offers of the capital needed for the purpoe encour aged an effort to that end For this pur pose options to buy the growing crop at prices materially abdve those prevailing last year were with considerable effort and the expenditure of a small sum of money secured from tbe great mass of growers covering peThaps 80 per cent of tbe total crop of he State A ben accepted by the syndicate to which they were to be transferred they were to be molded into contracts for tbe preent and succeedingv ears up to and including 189S at gradually advancing prices which would have given toe growers some mod erate return for tbeir capital and labor When the options had been collected however instead of treating ith those whose offers bad originally incited the effort overtures to the like effect from large wine dealers of San Francisco were listened to and the result as might have been foreseen was that after much negotiation differences arose as to the exact terms of the proposed contracts which were discovered to be insuperable only when it had become too late to shift front and tbe wbole project fell throned It is to be hoped that between this time and the vntage of 1895 some such arrangement will be made and the industry of which tbe State is so ustly proud may be rescued from its present prostrate condi Uon It is to be regretted that the great and respectable body of citizens who devote themselves so earnestly to tbe eradi cation of the vice of drunkenness have never tamed ther attention to the ad vantages of California wine as a promoter of temperance It is abundantly proved by statistics and indeed is the common observation of travelers that tbe nations in which the daily beverage of the people is light wine are conspicuously temperate ones The receipts of wine and bratvdv San Francisco from theinteriordunng 13 as shown by the report was 11 838 750 gal Ions of the former and 603 0j9 gallons of the latter The exports were Wme 12 326 033 gallons value 303093 brandy 7SS 342 gallons value L18So7 As near a can be estimated the amount of wine produced in the State in 1S93 was as follows llrv wms 17 000 000 sweet wines 4000000 gallons total 21 000 000 gallons Besides this wme at lean 2000 000 gallons of brandy were made representing an equiraientof 10 000 000 rations of wine so that if alt the grapes had been turned into wine the output would haTe been in the neighborhood of 31 000000 gallons or about 400 gallons for every acre of ne grapes planted At tbe present time it is impossible to make an accurate estimate of the coming crop but every oneroncedes that it will be much Jess than ihat of 1893 The rosts of April and May did considerable damage to the Tines of Napa bono ma Alameda Santa Clara and Fresno counties reducing the crop at least 20 percent where the grapes are tar eaoagh advanced considerable couture is noticed and the loss from this tanse may prove very great From ail appearances the Cabernet crapes will suffer very much lrom coulure and there will be a short crop ot those grapes As every one is hoping for a short crop this year no doubt tbev will all be eatisSed In the acpendices are a treatise of phyl loxera from the

completion ot the work on Fourteenth street Only the paving ot the roadway remains to be done The association intends to take up another matter ot Tital import A portion of the Fifteenth street sewer is in an extremely bad condition and is in urirent need of attention It was determined to send tbe executive committee before the Supervisors Street Committee and its press upon the latter the necessity of making repairs on the Fifteenth street sewer at once Bids have already ben invited brlt a contract has not yet been awarded The Supervisors will be urged to bare the work started before the winter storms cause a repetition of the damage done to tbe territory in the Tlcimty of Howard ard Folsom streets last season when the basements and yards were covered with several feet of witer An

only to scratch races and not to handicap events Tbe road racing committee was instructed to select fire timekeepers whose duty it shall be to attend all races held under the sanction of tbe assoc

the association proposes incorporating it in the by laws An amendment was offered to hold monthly meetings from February to October 1st and bimonthly meetings from October to February This will come up for action in the February meeting Tbe proposed change in tbe sixth relay course was referred to the road racing committee with power to act The new relay will be more on tbe straight away down Field arenue to Santa Clara street through San Jose and to Capital avenue thence to Berryessa and the Milpitas road It was also proposed to chance tbe starting point of the relay race from mnth and Market streets to some point on Po trero avenue to avoid passing through the crowded streets of this city The extra mile can be put on somewhere on the return trip from San Jose the halfway point

Serionsly In Pocket Only One Favorite Wins Jockey Coombs spent last night tinder the care of a doctor and a trained nurse while Jockey Bob Isom languished in the booby hatch Coombs carries thiee incised wounds in bis left side scattered from the armpit to the hip to trouble him for se7 eral days and attest Isomsadeptnesswith a long biased pocket knife The assault was committed in the saddling paddock at the Bay District track after the third race the California Theater stakes at one mile and one quarter There was a lot of jostling in the race from fiat fall to finish It was a continual fight for tbe dry path on the outside from end to end Coombs had the mount on Lovdal the even money favorite and during the running he swore at Isom who had the mount on San Luis Rey for bearing bim into the heary going and while the horses were running at top speed vowed to gtt even after the race In the jockeys room after the boys had weighed out the quarrel was resumed and Coombs and Isom came together Coombs stood a good chance ot getting the better of tbe fight when somebody it is said Felix Carr handed Isom a knife with the long blade open While the boys were clinched Isom jabbed away with the ugly looking weapon and did not stop unta Coombs fell bleeding and almost insensible from bis clutch Then Isom was pulled away and the knife taken from him Subsequently he was turned over to the police and taken to the station house while a surgeon was called in to look after Coombs Tbe injured boy lost a great quantity of blood but thanks more to the shortness ot tbe knife blade than to his assailants discretion his wonndsare not thought to be serious Isom with his brother was brought out and developed by Colonel Chfnn Sons for whom he now rides He was never supposed to be vicious and his employers argue that Coombs must have given him gTeat provocation There were six starters in the race to which the cutting scrape was a sequel tbe value of the stake being 1500 Lovdal in at the top weight on even terms with Thornhill was a stout favorite at even money Qilead being second choice and Thornhill a close up third The other three were in the discards Claudius went off in tbe lead but San Lms Rey passed him on the hrt quarter and led passing the stand showing the way to the quarter mile pole where Thornhill passed him out At the half Carr commenced making his run and taking forcible possession of the path Thornhill gained a lead of a head at the three quarters Tbe race home was between Oilead and Thornhill with all the advantage of going in favor of Otlead who won in a drive by a neck Lovdal went after Thornhill at the half bat was carried into the deep going and anchored That is bow tbe row began Claudius finished third two lengths behind Thorn hilL The wise people were second storied on the day and the bookmakers went home with Sunday money Argenta in the steeplechase was the only winning favorite and his price was beyond the reach of poor people Tbe six furlong selling race for two year olds which opened the programme looked like a good thing for Mainstay Tim Murphy brother Pat divided the place play with imp Vigor igor Hueneme and Murphy got away in the first flight Vigor chucked it up tbe first quarter and Murphy fell heir to tbe running Hueneme collared Murphr in tbe stretch and beat him out by a gasp Mainstay off badly ran a good race and was third Little Cripple when he was owned and trained bv John Rodegap occasionally beat stske critters in this kind ot pasty gome and therefore the track crowd had a little superstitious dread of him when he turned up for the brst time in the nine furlong handicap But there is several poanas diference between John Rodegap an i Pete eber at the training game and I ittle Cripple gave just a faint suspic on of his former self Alexis who got the money tbe thinnest of noses from Duke Stevens was a good thing having been backed down from 20 to 1 to 8 to 1 at tbe post Stevens who is an element in any kind of a race when he runs kindly took a rotion fn this case to run like a gentleman and going to the front at the first quarter he was nearly nailed on the post by Alexis who won by virtue of a good pull at tbe weights Tbe short course steeplechase was merely a promeiade for Louis Ezells Argenta who went to the front at the water jump and won all tbe way causing hU backers nb uneasiness at any stage Ingot was the runner up and Vulcan and Happy Band fought It out for the how money the former getting it by a head Jack Richelieu went to the pot odds on favorite in tbe short six furlongs

ML Raport who has been walking across the country to win a wager cf 5000 arrived fn San Francisco at 6 oclock last evening and at 7 oclock walked Into the office of the Palace Jlotel and hung oat his sign on the hotel register In a bold scrawl he wrote Raport tha walker New York to San Francisco He pent the rest of the eTening telling the people at the hotel how he did it When Baport landed at the foot of Mar ket street last evening he looked like an African explorer except for the fact that he was unarmed and unattended His bKSKe consisted of a toothbrush which protruded prominently from one of hU Test pockets and a big bunch ot memor andum books Everything about his per son showed the wear and tear of bis jour ney except the toothbrush He was attired In a faded suit of corduroy duck

the official railroad stamp Ot every railway station which he passed and tbe signature of tbe station agent Bv this means Mr Raport will prove lo the people from whom lie has won the wager that he has

Nevada and when I have been refused a bed I have walked all nlrht to keep warm Until I struck Nevada I had no trouble in getting anything wanted whether It was food clothing or shelter I wore out three suits of clothes and seven pairs of shoes in making the trip but I had no trouble at all in replenishing my wardrobe Whenever the occasion demanded it Mr Raport says that a New York dub put up tbe 5000 which temnted him to make tbe journev He is a commercial traveler by occupation and bas never done any long distance walklnr before but was tempted by the golden offer to make the experiment
