STATE EQUALIZATION MATTERS THE TAX LEVY. The State Board of Equalisation was in session all day Saturday aud until a very late hour at night. Sacramento county, in a writ' ten document, signed by Assessor J. W. Houston and Supervisors Wilson, Bauer, Blair and Butler, applied for a reduction of the assessment roll of Sacramento county 20 per cent.

It set forth that much of the property of the couuty is assessed too high that the assessment roll foots up $25 which is an increase of $7,181,078. Assessor Houston was examined, and based bis application verbally also upon the ground that other counties have not beeu assessed up to full cash value, and, therefore, to keep Sacramento up would make her bear an unequal share of the burden of government. Messrs. Wilson, Bauer, Blair aud Butler were also examined and gave that also as a reason, and added that a great proportion of the realty is assessed beyond its true cash value. The Board refused to lower the rolL Drew and King.

219,725 123,149 M. P. 633,517 416,112 The Board, by unanimous vote, refused to reduce any as-essment on any road, but declined to officially state the reason, whether for want of jurisdiction or because the roads are propeily assessed. The matter was first earnestly discussed by Attorney-General Hart on one side, and T. B.

McFarland on the other. The Attorney-General held that when the State Board of Equalization had made its assessments of railroads and sent them to the counties, such assessments became individual assessments, and under the decision of the Supreme Court could not be interfered with by the State Board. Judge McFarland held tithe contrary that, as the Board was the assessor of railroads, it had the power to equalize and correct such assessments, and that the same are wholly within the jurisdiction the State Board. The law required the Board to fix the tax rate for Slate purposes before the expiration of Saturday. About 11 o'clock, therefore, the Board after a long calculation found the value of all property tube that it is necessary to i 83,455,000 that, therefore, the State tax shall be on each hundred dollars, for the General Fund, thirty cents the School Fund, twenty-three cents; the Sinking and Interest Fund, six cents the Drainage Fund, cents.

Total, sixty-four cents on each one hundred dollars. The rate last year was The total valuation of property last year wn. 5517.622,769. The increase therefore is 8118,560,551. The levy of lit cents i- made on a sum twelve per cent.

less than the total valuation of all property, that per cent, being required by law to be estimated for delinquencies. So far as equalizing between counties was concerned the Board has done nothing, it having no time left it in which to do so, and because of a recent decision of the Supreme Court, the Board was greatly perplexed as to what it might to do; it it lowered or raised the entire assessment roll of any county, it would woik hardship upon all those individual assessments which are admittedly correct. During the afternoon there were some animated verbal passages in the Hoard that gave its session a decidedly lively character. The Board meets again to-day and will then conclude ita labors for the present. AIICHEBV Several citizens have contributed money to aid in an informal archery tournament to be held here this week, and of which announcement is made this morning.

It ii open to all archers, and there is no entry fee. It is expected that several of the best archers of San Fraccisco and Oakland and other places will be present and participate in the shooting; also, that they will have several matches among themselves at the longer ranges of 60, 80 and 100 yards. A number of local archers will be present and take part. The matchei have been brought about by the expressed desire of many abroad to come here ani engage in them. The shooting is set for Thursday and Friday, Capitol back grounds, 9:30 A.

Neatness pervades all parts of the grounds, aud the order and cleanliness and general arrangement is highly creditable to the taste and energy of Superintendent Flint. Much stock i is already in stall, enough (or several days' critical examination.

By noon to-day it is probable that every nook and corner will be taken. Yesterday the Superintendent had to turn from the gate, because every inch of space is already taken. The horse boxes are tilling rapidly, and by to-day's trains and boats the last animals will arrive. One can spend now two good days in close examination, and not then finish up all the rows of stalls now occupied. In fact, to-day will be an excellent one for those desirous of real information to begin a review of the stock as exhibitors will be found fresh and ready to impart desired knowledge.

The race track is iv splendid condition and never better for making fast time. The new system of keeping a black-board summary of each race, so that all the people may know all about it, will add a hundred fold to the interest of the spectators and must go a long way toward POFULARIZINfJ The races. Added to this is the new system of colors, by which any person will be enabled to identify any horse on the track, which will be a source of great satisfaction to the people in the stands and put an end to the annoying questioning, which few were able to satisfy heretofore, as What horse is that?" "Which is Santa Claus?" Ob, dear, there are six bays, and I can't tell which is which 1" "I do wish you'd tell me what horse it was that made the last heat." "If only we knew what horse that is "Is that grey Occident or Nutwood What horse is that inside I Which one of those animals is Elaine AT THE PAVILION There is greater advancement accomplished than ever before known on the tirst day of a State Fair in California. The promise is for the finest exhibit ever made under the auspices of the Society. It is a fact, the Secretary certifies, that exhibitors enough have been turned away, for want of room for the goods offered, to fill with the proposed exhibits another Pavilion as large as the; present one.

By to night the Pavilion will be fuller than ever before known at an opening and, indeed, the spa ies will be very' nearly, if not entirely filled and ready for I the opening at 7 P.M. The arrangement iv the halls and the rapid tilling up is largely dm to the executive ability of Superintendent Coleman and his assistant, 0. Dodge. President Larue, Secretary agi ami ths Directors weio constant in am Saturday and yesterday, and had over- Bight of all details and all general ties, and have thus far kept the machinery of the Heciety moving without friction, and directing all things connected with it with capacity and skid. The promise ii that they will have rea son to boast if the moat successful exhibit yet nmde by the State Agricultural Society, and there is nothing now to indicate any failure in any line.

THE DECORATIONS Of the Pavilion are worthy more than a passing notice. It has been decorated ou the interior with fltgs and streamers in abundance. The coats-of-arms and colors of many nations are displayed, and the national colors of the United States are liberally interspersed. At the northern end of the large hall is a handsome design of a pediment, and a banner bearing the words, Welcome to our President," and the monogram inclosed in a wreath. Above this is an olive branch, encircling all but the upper side ot a shield.

Upon the shield is mounted an American eagle with outstretched wings. For a background is a grouping of American flits. On the west side of this center- piece hangs a streamer upon which are inscribed the words, "Agriculture Art," and on the another em- i blazoned with the words, "Science, Commerce, Labor." The names of the various States of the Union, and the coat-of-arms of each, are conspicuously displayed upon other banners in various locations throughout the hall, and also the names of the counties of this State. In the northern end of the small or western hall is a centerpiece similar to that in the main hall, having two American fUgs as a background, and a wreath, upon which is inscribed these words "California State Agricultural Inclosed within this wreath is an American khield. An American eagle is perched upon the wreath, with wings outstretched.

Evergreens abound throughout the ball, and are also festooned from the Ceiling center to the corners in the Secretary's The exterior front of the main ball is draped elaborately in I evergreens, and flans in festoons gracefully here and there. Each fide the tral approach are tall staffs bearing pendent i streamers and shields, with the words Wel' ion-. President." was ti.e decorator, and has worked out a very tasteful iesult.

The Presidential Reception Sub-Committee met at the office of George Cadwaiader, at 4 P. Saturday. There were present also the Chairmen of the Finance.

Programme and Parade Committees. Mayor Turner presided. The Chairman of the Committee on reported that it had been arranged to receive the President and his party at the depot at 5 P. M. to-morrow (Tuesday), and that the party, after being welcomed by the Mayor, will at once be escorted to the residence of Governor 7 Stanford.

In the evening the President and party will visit, informally, and at their own pleasure. Wednesday morning, at 10 o'clock, the President and party will be escorted to the State Capitol and be received on the steps by Governor Perkins, after which formal welcome the party will occupy a platform in the rotunda beneath the dome, and hold a formal reception until coon or until such earlier hour as the reception may be concluded. The rotunda has been cho.en as a place more convenient than either of the legislative chambers, which can only be approached by stairway that will delay the passage of the people. From the Capitol the party will be escorted to the Park and stock grounds, being received at Park, in the Directors' stand, by the State Board of where also luncheon will be served. Between 4 and 5 o'clock the President and party will leave the grounds and return to Governor Stanford's residence.

That evening the party will be formally received at the Pavilion by. the State Agricultural Society. Thursday the party will witness the grand stock parade at the Park at 9 A. which will close the reception programme in Sacramento, the President and paity departing for Chico in the afternoon of Thursday. The Chairman of the Committee on Parade reported a parade to conform to the programme, as follows At the Tuesday evening reception at the depot the military escort will consist of the First Infantry Regiment, Colonel Dickinson commanding, and the route of march will be from the depot along Second street to to Tenth, to to Eighth.

Wednesday morning the Artillery Regiment, Colonel Haymond, the First Infantry Regiment, Colonel Dickinson, the Sacramento Hussars, Captain Ruhstaller, the Sacramento Zouaves, Captain Emory, and Sumner Post, No. 3, Grand Army of the Republic, Commander Kent, will constitute the escort, and assemble at 9:30 A. sharp, and appear at the corner of and Eighth streets at 9:50 A. 11., sharp, and escort the President and party from there at 10 A. sharp, to the Capitol, the route being down to Seventh, to to Tenth, to the main entrance of the Capitol grounds.

The military will be drawn up in double columns, either side the entrance, and the President and party will be escorted between the lines by the Reception Committee and the Grand Army of the Republic to the steps of the Capitol, where Governor Perkins will make a welcoming address. At the close of the reception in the Capitol, the military will reform and escort the party to the Park, the route of march to which will be hereafter agreed upon and announced. The route was discussed by the Committee Saturday, and the whole matter referred to the Committee on Parade, which consists of General Sheehan, Colonel Haymond, C. H. Hubbard and Commander Kent.

It will report a rodte, probably, at the meeting of the Reception Committee to be held at 4 P. a. to-day. The prevailing idea was that the route of march should be about or a little less than two miles. The committee received an application from the Boys in Blue for permission to serenade the President and General Sherman on Wednesday night, after the return of the party from the Pavilion.

The committee approved the proposition. The committee' received a communication from the Grand Army of the Republic asking fur the concurrence of the committee in a proposition to meet the President and General Sherman for one hour, in a private meeting, where the members can greet them personally. The matter was referred to the President, the committee agreeing to concur if his consent is gained. The Sacramento Society rf California Pioneers applied for a half hour in which to meet the President and party. Action was deferred on this matter until the meeting of the committee at noon on Tuesday.

'llie Chairman of the Committee on Parade incidentally stated that the Grand Army of the Republic would be detailed as an especial escort of honor to the President and General Sherman during their entire stay here. During the stay of the Presidential party here, as baa already been stated, their home will beat the residence of Governor Stanford, who entertains it on behalf of the city of Sacramento. It is now ascertained that in the absence of Mrs. Stanford, who is now in Europe, the Governor, in placing bis house at the disposal of the President and his wife, makes Mrs. Hayes the hostess of the establishment.

The Committee on Reception is to meet at 4 P. M. today at the office of George Cadwaiader, and invites to be present the Chairmen of each of the other committees and urges their CITY AUDITOR'S REPORT. E. 11.

The Officer of the Day yesterday was Capt. Bush and the Officer of the Guard Lieut. Ilolyoke. For to-day the Officer of the Day will be Captain Gaylord and the Officer of the Guard Lieutenant Hebbard. The camp is pitched upon the high ground on the southwest of the Grove.

The grounds are not quite so sheltered or retired as at East Park beyond Thirty-first, but there is more elbow room, and the contiguity of the camp to the city railway lines and iti nearness to the city makes this location the better one. The camp consists of 47 Sibley and 22 wall tents. There are four streets and avenue F. The companies are located in this order Right, Companies 11, and left, Companies 11, I) and C. Company II has the right of the regimental line, Company the center, and Company the left of- the line.

Last evening the camp was illuminated, a bundled colored lanterus lieing hung upand down and across the streets, beside numerous lamps with here and there. Soon after the illumination was (inplete the drum corps took, op its tuition at the head of avenue in front of the flagstaff arid an the tetreat was beaten the fl.ii; came down on the run ami night in camp set in.
