How the Founder of ttie College of Vie Law Eecame Enamored of a Fanner's Daughter. Yesterday morning: Judge Finn sat in his chambers quietly perusing a late decision of the Supremo Court when a knock at the door announced a visitor. "Come in," exclaimed the Judge, but when the door opened he was so engrossed in his reading that he did not immediately lift his eyt a from his paper to ascertain w ho his visitors were. " Good morning. Judge," spoke a well-known voice, and His Honor was not little Astonished to receive so early a call from ex-Judge Hastings, the millionaire and lonnder of theHnstings Collegeof the Law, Hut his surprise was increased when he beheid the rich lawyers companion. How ever, in a business-like manner, he a-ked his visitor, " Whatcan Ido for you. Judge 1 ' " You can make us or.e, was the reply. Judga Hastings pointed to a handsome young hid y 3taniiing by his side and draw ing from his pocket a marriage license, he handed the document to the Judge of Department No. 3. The names and ages of the contracting I arties were inserted as : :" ". " S. CLINTON IlAMTINfiK.

Judge Finn looked from the bridegroom to the bride, and from the bride to the witnesses, and from the witnesses his glances stale back to he license. The witnesses were the father of the bride and William Gisel- ,,,,, vuu ugUIitUi lilt; Uitut.(.iv. . an introduction by Judge Hastings, the knot was so- n tied bv J udtce Finn and the newly-married couple departed tor their apartments at the Palace Hotel. Jmlee Hastings is too well known on the l'aciuc Coast to require any extensive introduction. Tho ma:-rnitieent donation of I00,00) teven years ago, for the foundation of a law college in connection with the State University, ha3 caused him to bo us a .ublic benefactor. As a supreme Judge of this Si ate. his jjreat legal abilities wore recognized, lie is an extensive landowner in this State and city. Hiss m, liobcrt K, wastheChairmnnof the last Board of Kducation, and his other son, Charles H., is the Uegistiurof the Hastings Law College. His iirst wil'e died about seven years ago in ) urope. In 171 ha created a trust of all his property for his childrentwo sons and two daughters and last year he deeded all the vroperty acquired by him since the trust to his sons for distribution after his decease. The deed is of the nat ure of a testamentary a t. his fortune is estimated at from .1,000 000 to $:s.,0,.jOti. He has an erect form, black nust'iehe slightly mixed with gray, and iooks like a man in the prime of lite. HOW THEY MET. Three years ago whn Judge Hastings aecamo acquainted with his present wife in th ; little town of I kiah she was the pride of that village. Her pleasant face, aright eyes, kind words and charming manners attracted to the miss of 1G Summers a small army of admirers. Her father was a farmer, and on one of Judge Hastings' trips to Mendocino county he nalied at her home and immediately became impressed with her beauty. It is laid that the rich witiowvr made his visits lo her house more frequently than wa3 utually necessary fi r strictly business purposes, and after a Bhort while and persistent pleadings Mr. Knust consented that his daughter Lillian should leave the parental roof to be more thoroughly educated at the expense of the wealthy jurist. It was then an open secret that as soon as nor education should be completed she arrvlH WniP'1 rbfl mitrr tb hr'e ' jousehold. The young lady stopped for lunie time in this ci y, malting iieqUeiit visits at her father's honiei, which had in :he mean time been removed to Clover-lale. HER DESCRIPTION. As she stood before Judge Finn yester-3ay, 8he was a strikingly handsome woman. Dressed in an elegant and tasteful silk dress, she showed her graceful form to advantage. 1 arge dark eyes illuminated a prettily-shaped head, while a pleasant smile disclosed to view two rows of snow-white teeth. Rosy cheeks and a beautiful complexion spoke of youth and health. The marriage between the parties had been an icipated for some time, but was delayed by Judge Hastings' trip East. On last Alonday he re turned to this city, and his first act was to send a telegram to his affianced at Cloverdale, informing her of his return and requesting her to come immediately to this city to fulfill her promise of marriage. The couple will reside permanently on Judge Hastings' l-rg ua. in Lakeport, but will make a honeymoon trip throughout the State and spend the Summer in the Eastern States. The general impression that Judge Hastings has deeded all his property to his children, and Is virtually left without any estate, is erroneous, as he settled a snug little sum in his newly acquired wife. THE ATHANASIADES. Flsey Have Another Insatisractur? Slceiine. Marco Athanasiade, his Greek wife, the Turkish Consul, Mr. Mayer, an interpreter, and Mi. Sullivan, a lawyer, composed a pleasant little gathering which assembled in George W. Gibbs'office yesterday. The man of law represented Marco and the interpreter airs. Marco. The object of the meeting was to arrange the difference between the Greek couple. The lady demanded the sum of 1.000 per year from the lime peddler to support herself and children. This Marco refused to give, but held ti his first oiler, which was to support the two girls, whom he admits are his children. All through the meeting Athanasiade acted in a rough manner toward his wife, but will most likely accept Mr. Gibbs' advice and make provision for his family. No conclusions were arrived at, and another meeting will be held at 2 p. M. to-day. In the mean time the woman, who has become possessed of i neat dress and cloak, will be provided Tor by friends of her own race. Should no satisfactory agreement be reached Marco will be prosecuted for bigamy. His Swedish wife has been judiciously seclud ed to await results. WHY HE DIP IT. Testimony in the t'ase of the Suicide, Pinion reyser. At the Coroner's inquest yesterday over tho bi-dy of Simon A. 1'eyser, who was found on Tuesday morning on tho beach at Hunter's Point, by George Clement and Willie O'Reilly. Philip Falk testuied that the deceased, who was an old friend of his, was a bookkeeper with Honig & Co., manufacturers of gentlemen's furnishing goods on Battery street. He further stated that Pevser had told Jvm mat ne was il j short on his accounts, and that he was go ing to jump into the bay if he could summon up courage to do so. Falk proiVcred the reuui.-ate amount to cover the defah-, tion, but it was refused. From other testimony it was shown that the deceased had been keeping very late hours in the last week and had prooaoty lost ms money at the trembling table, lie was a divo.ced man and lived with his son at No. 31 Turk street. V.

ICuttner's b lief w; s that his friend was mentally nnbal- lanced. A verdict or suicide was ren dered. THE RIGHT OF VOOJNC. A ow S'rtuod of Establishing FrlorHv. the Jay Ball and John Shinnich quarreled late on Tuesday nMht in the Second-street Heuse over the affections of one of the young lady guests. Ball is the proprietor of the establi hment, and in consequence believed himself entitled to a prior right of wooing. Ile remonstratedlwith Shinnich. telling him to vacate the premises or he would make it warm tor him. bhin::ich consented to leave the house only on con dition that he would bo paid what money ho had deposited In advance for bis week s boa.-d. The amount was handed him, but ! still insisted in remaining under the ot where resided hi love. Ball became tngcrcd at the -t roceeding, and, drawing a revolver, toot two shots at ms rival. Neither missile took efteot. but the explo- nnns attracted Umc-ers loom and Aloran, who placed the shoo r under arrest on ;harge of assault to murder. Roiieh on Insurance Men. A petition from several of the leading in surance companies, asking that insurance loiicitors be exempt from paying the quarterly license now demanded from them, rame up before the License and Order, Committee of the Board of Supervisors yesterday afternoon. Several insurance men appeared before the committee and urged the repeal of Paragraph 31. Section 10. City Order 15S1), in relation to insurance Solicitors license, claiming it was not ,-.ust to charge that class of men a license. The commutes refused to take any action in the matter, and after granting Isaac s-haw nd John Haley each a free license to ped-iie, they adjourned. The Kennedy Case. C. B. Darwin, counsel for Mrs. Sarah Kennedy, announced in Judge T.sohy s Court that his client was still nn well, and aedid not want t.j place her on the stand intil she had recovered sutticiently to Hand cross-examina'-ion. The i ourt aguia ranted a continuance until lodaj. A TALE OF A TAIL The Sew May t Beating tne Washrr-ihi by amnlsorv lsetration. There was & lively little racket the other afternoon in one of the upper hallways of a high-toned lodging-house on Pine street, A little racket is hardly expressive enough, for it was a big disturbance, and the noise made brought nearly all the lodgers in the house to their doors to see if a murder was being committed or if a Chinese funeral was passing through the hallway. To their great surprise was seen a Chinaman with his head lowered against the door of room No. . His wooden-shod feet were playing a rattling tattoo s gainst the panels, while the air was actually blue with howls, yells and Chinese vituperation. His blue blouse was ragged and torn as if by a struggle. His hat lay on the landing below, while his clothes-basket, for, he was a laundry-man. was jammed down over a plaster of Paris statuette of Venus in the corner. A hasty inspection showed that the worshiper of Confucius was fastened in the door by the queue, and the door was locked. How he came to be in such a ox was a mystery. The housekeeper was called and, after some trouble, the door was unlocked and the Chinaman liberated. T. the inquiry as to what was the matter all that could be got from John was: " Heap big-lascal ! Calla me dlain f oole ! Blake my nose maktim bleed! Tlarmy coats! Kick me hard top side my pants. Make my bone feela much ache 1" rubbing him-e'f tenderly where he was ia the most pain. Inquiry brought to light the cause of the trouble which the Chinaman was unable to explain. A young man, somewhat of a dude in his way, had the suite of rooms above mentioned. He put his washing out to the Chinaman. When the wash was returned two shirts were missing. Had anything but the shirts been missing it would not have been so bad, but the loss of these could not be overlooked. So the young blood deducted the value of the garments from the amount of the bin. This did not suit John and he made a grab for the clothes. A catch-as-catch-can wrestling match ensued and the washer of linen got the worst of it. He was at last picked tip bodily and fired with his basket. Not having had enough he returned and was again bounced and the door slammed upon his back. The flying queue, however, was caught, and like a rat with its tail in a trap the Mongol was fastened securely. Thinking it a good joke the dude locked the door and, hastilv Vuwiug Oil ilia um, vwri uvuituic u, another exit and was soon among the bloods, to whom he told his thrilling tale of the washerman's tail. Jt is said that the young man is now a little scared and has applied for permission to carry a pistol, as " there is no telling what the feliah will do, you know." SILK CULTURKSTS. Secretary Eaymond UrU Hauled Over I he Coals. . The monthly meeting of the State Board of Silk Culture was held yesterday afternoon. Dr. C. A. Buckbee presiding and airs. S. A. Raymond acting as secretary. The report of the Finance Committee, recommending the payment of bills aggregating 105 02, including $75 for the Secretary's salary, was presented by Professor llilgard and. adopted. The Committee on Trees and Cocoons reported the distribution of 16,000 cuttings during the past month, and the Health Committee, the distribution of about 250,-OiW egg3 during the same time. After considerable discussion the reoorta were adopted. 1 he adoption of tho latter report was the occasion for an acrimonious debate. The Act under which this Board was created provides that all eggs distributed must be by ord r of the Health Committee. It was stated yesterday that the Secretary, Mrs. liaymond, had overstepped her authority and had transgressed the law by distribu ing the egs to whomever she, in her wisdom, saw fit, without first having the requisite orders from the Health Committee. Mrs. Raymond attempted several explanations and finally stated that she had acted upon the order of I)r. William P. Gibbons, Chairman of the committee. After much talk this explanation was accepted, and the Board adjourned to meet again at the call of the I hair, it being understood that at such time the newly ap-tioSi tea Board would bo ushered into office. KE WANTS HIS Ceo n:e VF. Irlnk Asks the Board to Keiuru Paid Taxti. George AY". Frink, a member of the Pacific Coast Land Bureau, has filed a petition with the Board of Supervisors asking them to refund 44 79 to him, which he paid on a mortgage tax. Mr. Frink recently purchased the lot on the southwest corner of Seventh and Brannan streeis, upon which ho afterward discovered there was a clouded title, the rjronertv having been sold to satisfy a mortgage tax. He paid the amount necessary to redeem the vroperty, and upon investigation he found the mortgage consisted of,a coutract of sale made by 1). H. Whi.temore to E. M. Piercy, dated .February, 180, upon which there was never any acreeinejit tf par -ii.- Th. wJiirrncL, or Dona, expired in February. 1884, and as the Supreme Court has decided that such a contract has none of the attributes of a mortgage, the petitioner asks the Board to reimburse him. The !ueen of the Fairies. There is on exhibition in the windows of Colonel Andrews' Diamond Palace a beautiful work of sculpture by EphraimKeyser, " Titania, the Queen of the Fairies." The work attracted much interest at the International Art Exhibition at Rome, and received many complimentary notices. The artist is an American, having been born in Baltimore in ISol, and received ms instruction in bis art at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts at aiunich, Bavaria. Iany of his best works are in the hands of wealthy American families. William H. vanoer- biltof New York has "The Pet Falcon, air. Kevser also has the commission from the United States for the He Kalb aionu- ment, to be erected at Annai-otis, Mary land, by the 1st day ol July, iBt. tania is a worthy piece ot tne nanaiworK of the celebrated sculptor. Vton!rt-Ke Teachers. The semi-annual examination of appli cants for first and second grado teachers : certificates was continued yesterday in the Lincoln school. The examination is being conducted under the auspices of the Board of Examiners, and will not be concluded until Friday. At the commencement oi the examination there were i:'0 applicants for certiricate3. Of this number seventy have dropped out, having failed to obtain the required percentage in arithmetic. grammar and spelling. The numoerot applicants was greater this year than for several years past. After Many nutus. A former proprietor of the Bella Union Theater, P. aicAtee. while fulfilling his duties as manager of that place, one evening some months ago, left his timepiece in charge of William Horton, whom he con sidered assarcasan iron vault. Jtiorton, when looked for by McAtee an hour later, was not to be found. A report of the case was made at police headquarters, and Detective John Cofi'ey, hearing that the culprit was in Sacramento, went there yesterday and placed him under arrest. Horton now uuuj-us a ucia iu tuc v,ilj ioauu. MnrpHy's Fractured Arm. Luke R. aiurphy has sued tho Ship owners and aferchants' Tug Boat Company for $20,300 damages for alleged personal injuries. The plaintiif alleges that he was employed as steward on the company's tug Sea King, ana wa-?oraerea on January ;tlst last by her Captain to assist the sailors in the adjustment of the ropes. The ropes slipped from the bit anostrucK tne piawuir on the ria-ht forearm, fracturing the bones and inflicting miuries incapacitating him from doing any work. The Esvtt-strre iilsance. Superintendent of Streets Ruggles has filed a communication with the Board of Supervisors requesting them to order the property-owners on Fast street to repair that thoroughfare immediately. If the property-owners reiuse or neglect to ao so the Superintendent intends to arrest one or more and so make a test case, upon which a decisi n can be obtained in the court and thus settle the matter ot whether there is any way of repairing that s reet or not. Fire Thousand Acres. The case of the San Francisco Savings Union et al. vs.Irwin was begun yesterday, in the United States Circuit Court. The defendant represents the United States Gov ernment. The suit is to recover possession of 6,000 acres of swamp land on aiare Island, valued at $25,000, and claimed by the Government under Spanish land grant, Tut ears for It llson. In the United States District Court yesterday Henry Wilson, chargad with illegal vbtiniT, withdrew his plea of not guilty and pleaded guilty.

How Moneyed Lepers Are Cared For Hore Smuggling Discovered at the Water Front The following has been submitted to Coroner O'DonnelL Chairman of the Committee of Five Hundred, as the report of the Citizens' Committee of Twenty-five : Gentlemen: At our last public meeting at the New City Hall the undersigned Citizens' Committee presented to you a careful report of our labors in the Chinese kingdom. We then announced that it was our final report. Our design in announcing it as a final report was to throw the coolies and the Six Companies off their guard. They had by a system of secret signals defeated every effort on our part to enter their secret places. But the moment they learned that we had handed in our final report they relaxed their vigilance. They stopped their signals. They supposed we had abandoned the field. Hence our work during the last week has not encountered so much opposition as during our first attempt to see Chinatown as it it. Your committee having outwitted the coolies by this piece of strategy, disguised themselves as highbinders. Every one of us by means of a wig was enabled to supply the Chinese queue. PAINTING OUH FACES With a iut-brown color, we put on the coolie blouse and the wooden shoes, and were ready for action. Our visits being made at night, we easily avoided detection. We were, to all outward appearances, Chinese of a low caste, and in this disguise we easily effected an entrance to places and recesses which on our former visits wers closed against ua. "Your committee were perfectly aware that every tenement and habitation in Chinatown is doomed. All of us had learned the lesson that a house or building once inhabited by coolies can never be reoccupied by the white race. All the owners of buildings in Chinatown know perfectly well that the mrur.-,-, .li-fUi-r-' , J1II11C30 and occupied by them, it is forever after useless to white people. Hence, if tomorrow the Chinese should vacate Chinatown en masse, or in a body, that quarter of the city would become a desert. The buildings would become the abode of rats, cats, vagrant dogs and other vermin. But not one building would command any market price or value, because the whites would BHP.IJTK WITH HORROR From any occupation of them. It is the opinion of your committee that, if the Chinese sooner or later evacuate, the buildings in their quarter will have to be burned. Few whites would use the materials of those buildings even for firewood, because, like an infected ship, every fiber of their timbers is full of contagion, and no disinfectant on God's green . earth can remove the stench or restore them to purity. Your committee, knowing that they had undertaken a dangerous task, resolved to discharge it fearlessly. Dividing our force, one-half of us entered a building the other half watched the exits and entrances. In this way the outside posse could, at a moment's warning, rush to the defense of .their comrades. In an old building located near the corner of Dupont and Paciiic streets the Chinese have sunk a shaft like a miner's shaft, say thirty feet in depth, from the floor of the cellar. A CHAMBER OF HORRORS. At the foot or bottom of that shaft they have drifted in several directions, precisely as miners drift for ore. On one side of the shaft we discovered the opening of a tunnel, which extends diagonally clear across Pacific street, where it strikes another shaft. Ascending this latter shaftr by a rope ladder.we struck a trap-door in a building located on the south side of Pacific street. We lifted this trap-door and entered a room twenty feet square. Here were assembled from twenty-five to thirty whites and Chinese, reveling in debauchery, sweating in infamy, and drunk with the fumes of opium. Some of them were entirely naked, and many of them showed in their eyes the glare of insanity. That chamber of horrors will never be obliterated from our minds. It thrilled our blood and made us utter an execration against the fiends who have thus damned and despoiled our beautiful city. Finding it impossible to breathe the air of this den, where the king of terrors holds undisputed sway, we forced our way out and were glad indeed to breathe once more the pure air of heaven. In other places in Chinatown we discovered TEMPORARY CEMETERIES, Where bodies are deposited in shallow graves. Here and there a foot or an arm obtrudes above the surface, while armies of rats gorge themselves upon the festering corpses. Any man entering Chinatown with a determination to explore its Horrors must go iuliy prepared to battle with rats of enormous ferocity, or they will eat him alive. They are worse, indeed, than the rats that swarm in the eewers of London and Paris terrible, ffitteeare of 1fie" oplni'dhTaiter careful oo- i servation, that the underground labyrinths of Chinatown contain more than 2,000 Chinese who never come to the surface, or to the light of day. MONET LEPERS. Lepers are confined there awaiting an opportunity for shipment on board some departing vessel. Others living in these ' depths are criminals, murderers, burglars and outlaws. But in the judgment of your committee it is a crime abhorrent to nature and to nature's God that such a pandemonium should be allowed to exist in a Christian city. That portion of your committee appointed to watch the city front discovered last aionday evening, at midnight, about seventy-live persons landing at the foot of Third street. Approach ing them you may imagine our surprise when we found that they were land-in r from a bark iust arrived from Ttritish Columbia. The mystery of the vast increase of the coolies here was at once explained. Your committee oetieve and renort to vou that the time for vigor ous repressivemea3ures has at last arrived. The public peace and safety depends upon your action. I. 1. w auk, r resiuenw Waltjoi Rodney, Secrotary. THE EXPEDITION.

On the road home the Doctor and his companion picked up no less than fourteen slippers, five skull-caps and as many queues, which the preceding heroes had dropped and were in too great a hurry to s op and pick up. 'Chance In Postage Rates. On July 1st the following rates ot postage will go into effect: Letters weighing an ounce may be sent for cents, the rate cow applied to half-ounce letters. Newspapers mailed from the publication office or by newsdealers are to be taxed half as much as at present, or 1 cent per pound instead of 2 cents.

The raids made some time ago in Chinatown by the officers la search of white babies resulted in the capture of a number of little ones who were being brought up by the heathens, according to their methods of life, and for immoral purposes. For a time the raids were abandoned, because the heathens managed to bide away the babes so that it became impossible to secure them. Believing that the officers had relaxed their vigilance, the Chinese grew careless, and yesterday when Detectives Cox and Avan again resumed their labors they found three little white children in a filthy hovel in a dark alley running off Dupont street. The Chinese women in charge of the babies were required to accompany the officers to Secretary Hunter's office, of the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children. Ah S o, a girl fourteen months old, whom air. Hunter gave the name of alary Wright to identify her, was said to belong to a Chinaman in the Jackson-street Theater, but from all ap- Eearances he has not a drop of Mongolian lood in her body. A little boy about one year old, whom his Chinese adopted parents called Man Hay, was renamed David Wright. His owners said that he had been given to them by a white woman of loose morals. The third infant is not over six months old, a girl with large blue eye3,andthe Chinaman who came to the office to claim it during the afternoon stated that he was presented with it by a wnite woman wnose name ue uiu. no know. The children were sent to gt. Joseph's Infant Shelter. SARAH ALTHEA'S MISTAKE As to Which DecisloB Was Being Discussed en tbe Street. Two gentlemen, who take considerable interest in sporting events, were walking along Market street, near the Baldwin Theater, yesterday noon. They were discussing some of the recent pugilistic events and finally the decision of ,Ref eree J. C, Seymour in the Carr-Cleary match was brought up. Walking just in front of the gentlemen were two ladies. "What do you think of the decision t asked one sport of ths other. A vei y fair and honest decision it was xnaccu, Tf us tuc reuiy. " With all the money there was at stake he (meaning Seymour) could have mada a neat little pile tor himself had he desired,'' remarked No. L. At this one of the ladies ahead turned around and bestowed-tm the sporting inclined gentlemen a look of mostinexpressi ble scorn, and she remarked to her companion so that the g ntlemen would hear her : I don't see why it is that I connot pass along the public street without being insulted by vulgar people who discuss for my special benefit deciions' and 'piles of money at stake" and 'bribes 'and so forth." With another oh-you-horrid-man look Bhe disappeared into a store. The lady was the plaintiff in the Sharon suit, and the gentlemen saw at once the error she had made. It was Referee Seymour's, not Judge Sullivan's, decision that was under consideration. JUDICIARY. A Complicated Case The Street Con tractors Keenest. At the meeting of the Judiciary Committee of the Board of Supervisors yesterday Joseph Sheerer, accompanied by his attorney, ap; -eared before that body and asked to have his claim against the city of f 1,750 settled. Some time ago Michael Friedhofer sued the city for breach of contract, and recovered judgment for the amount named, with interest. Ex-Auditor Edgar refused to audit the demand, and a writ of mandamus was sued out before Jud;e Lawler, compelling him to audit the amount of the judgment. On the day the mandamus was issued Friedhofer assigned his claim to Sheerer, the assignment being filed with the other records of the case. Several days after the assignment Friedhofer had the claim audited and drew the money from the Treasurer. Sheerer presented his claim, but the Auditor refused to audit it, as he had already audited Friedhofer s bill. Sheerer's lawyer has already hied an action in the Supreme Court, to compel the Auditor to allow his client's claim, and thus the matter stands. The committee reported against the petition. A petition from a number of street contractors, asking the Board of Supervisors to request the Governor to sign Senate Bill No. 79. in relation to street work, was read and placed on file. The committee then adjourned for one week. The Annunciation. The Catholic population yesterday celebrated the Annunciation, one of the four principal feasts of the year.

Eastwood upon receipt of their recommendations duly corrected. Carried. Professor Allen moved that no diploma be granted to William A. Houghton, as his application is not accompanied by a proper first-grade certificate. Professor Allen introduced the following resolution: Whereas, the following persons have satisfied this Bard that their life diplomas have been destroyed, - Resolved, That duplicate life diplomas be granted them: Sue V. Heard, DaYid T. Seely and Josiah S. Hammond. The resolution was adopted. The applications of Abbey M. Praber and Anna D.

TU . UliimfFTOieU before tot, unl and stated that his present impression was that he would not feel authorized to draw his warrant for more arithmetics than are provided for in said Act. On motion of Professor Welcker the State Printer was also asked to appear before the Board and state whether or not he would feel" authorized, at the request of the State Board, purchase stereotype plates. In reply he said that he would not feel so authorized, with the exception of cases in which the State printing office was not prepared to do the work. - PROPOSALS FOlt MANUSCRIPTS. On motion of Gavernor Stoneman it was ordered that proposals will be received for furnishing the manuscripts or printed text of thres readers, one speller, one arithmetic, one grammar, one history of the United State and one geography, as prescribed in Section 1 of "An Act to provide for compiling, illustrating, eta, a series of school text-books, and appropriating money therefor," approved February 2i j, 188a. Proposals will ba received until the 1st of June, 1885, and should be addressed to William T. Welcker, Secretary of State Board of Education, at Sacramento, CaL The ayes on thi3 were Governor Stoneman, Professor More and ProfessorW. T. Welcker; no, Professor Allen. The following communication was received and placed on hie s San Francisco, March 23, 1835. To the Honorable State Hoard of Hdw-cation, Sacramento, Val. Gentlemex: V e have had the matter of submitting to your honorable body a proposition enabling you to make use of our new series of Bancroft Readers under consideration. In considering what we can do in justice to ourselves to assist you In the matter of making your new series of State Headers, we have assumed that eo-operation between yourselves and the State Printer would be necessary. It is our understanding that the matter of furnishing designs is assigned to the Si ate Board of Education, while the engraving falls to the duty of the State Printer. If this is correct, we suppose that it will be necessary that an understanding should exist between yourselves and the State Printer, if use is made of the engravings which we have already prepared for our readers. We have, therefore, thought it would be proper for us to submit to you a proposition looking to such a free use of our compilation as would give the State the use or our engravings as weli As we understand it, your co-operation or consent is necessary to the consummation of any such arrangement. If an agreement ot this kind can be made, we will be enabled to furnish you an entire outfit of illustrations for one-half what they cost us, and we procured them in the most economical way we could de- in detail, together with the State printer, we shall be pleased to hear from you to that etfect. We remain, respectfully, A. L. Bancroft & Co. THE SUBJECT Olf COMPIIATION. A letter was received recommending very highly as proof-reader and compiler W. IL V. Raymond. It was from John Swett, a gentleman who was connected with him in arranging tha Bancroft Readers. A comunication from R. C. O'Connor was read, desiring to compile a text-book on double-entry bookkeeping, and giving tbe best of references as to his ability. A letter was also received from the Secretary of the W. C. T. U., requesting that the compilation of books on the subject of temperance be not overlooked. A letter from Mr. Kiime of San Francisco, which was spoken of during the last session of the Board, was again read, asking for a position as compiler, and relating his qualifications for such work. The letter was written ( to Professor Welcker, and not addressed to the Board. "Governor Stoneman said that Kinne had no business to write such a letter, as all matters of business relating to the Board should be addressed to the Board. Superintendent Welcker also said that any communication sent relative to busi nesa should be to tbe Board, and that he-was perfectly willing that all letters in any way relating to Board work should be read before that body. After the tranasction ot some unimportant business, the Board, at 5:30, ad journed until 10 o ciock this morning. EESPOSSIBILITr OF THE BOAED. ' When the Board reconvened this aiter- noon, Professor Allen said he would invite proposals on history, spelling and reading, but not on the other books; as, on account of the restrictions placed by the Legislature, these-books could not be compiled satisfactorily. He then introduced tbe following resolution : Whereas, Section 7 of the Constitution, relating to text-books, devolves certain important duties, said duties being of a special and not of a general character; and wbereas, we are, as we believe, under the article referred to, constituted sole judges of the nature and number of text-books that the State Board sbould publish, this decision being of the nature of expert duty; and whereas, we fully recognize the fact that we, and not t'e Legislature, are held responsible for the whole manner in which we discharge the duties arising under said section; and whereas, the Legislature, by Chapter VIII. Section 1, of the laws of 1885, "An Act to provide tor the compiling of text-books," resiricted our work in important particulars, and that under these restrictions we tauiuui, iu uui uyiiiiuii, t-'i u-tare text-books uuon arithmetics, gram mars or geographies that will be satisfactory to ourselves or acceptable to the State, therefore, Resolved. That, at present, we will pro ceed with the wo.'k only upon readers spellers and a history of the L nited States' This was lost. Ayes Governor Stone man and Professor Allen ; noes Professors Welcker and Mure. COMPILING TEXT-BOOKS. Professor Allen then introduced the following; Resolved. That the Board will, in pursu ance or section a- uip.jr ni.oi cue jct to provide for compiling iext-o.ofcs. until June 1, ltfeo, receive, and at the end of that time, consider any and all propositions for furnishing, as a free gift, compilations and copyright of one or more of the seriea of text-books described in Section lof said Act of the Code, to-wit : Three readers, one grammar, one speiier, one niatory or tne United States, one arithmetic, one geog- raB.,7rvii. That it when such nroTtoaals are considered, it shall be found that any of the -works hereinbefore mentioned are not tendered to the Board a? a free gift or that those tendered are not, ia the opinion of the Board, of the first order of excellence, then the Board will consider plans and tiM-imen pages of such text as may then be before them, will fix the compensation to be paid for the text and copyright of auch compilations on each of said suojects aa may be accepted by the Board. These resolutions were adopted with a full vote. Professor More introduced the follow ing resolution, waica was adopted : Resolved. That on or before June L 1SS5, any one willing to prepare a book or books of this series shall present an index or general scheme with specimen pages of such volume, together with the probable number of pages of such bock and the time required to prepare it for the press. He shall also present such evidence of previous work as shall satiaiy the Board of his ability to complete the bock at the specified time, or any o her voucher or evidence of special capacity which ha may choose to furnish. - Professor More offered the following-, also, which was adopted : fUsUvcd, That Mob taeutber of Uba Board shall assume the special charge of one or more books of the series, and to read the manuscripts to the Board. Governor Stoneman offered the following resolution, which was adopted unanimously: Resoved., That the office of Literary Proof-reader and Editor-in-Chief is hereby created, with a salary of $250 per month. This office will be tilled at the next meeting, and the Editor-in-Chief will enter upon bis duties on Jnne 1st. The Board adjourned to meet in San Jose June Irth. CAPTUHiNC A EU3SLAR. Two Detectives' Cbase After a Sasrert, ., 9ver Boasrtoiis. A burglar entered the house of Mrs. Ida Howard on the lath instant, about midnight, and before he was discovered managed to rifle a wardrobe of considerable wearing apparel. The landlady caught sight of the fugitive as he was leaving the house and was able to give his description to Detectives Harper and Bee. From the manner in which the job was done and the description given the officers fastened their suspicions on William Morse, alias Curran. That individual was watched night and day, and when he was visited at his room, at the corner of Market and Sixth streets, last Friday, he as much as acknowledged his guilt by jumping from a rear window in the house and climbing from one roof to another on his way to Stevenson street. Hetective Harper started in pursuit, using his revolver as he climbed, tiring in such close proximity to Morse's limbs that he lay down, and was overtaken and lodged in the City Prison. In his room were found the missing garments belonging to Mrs. Howard, and a quantity of burglars' took. He was booked lust evening on charge of burglary in the first degree and having burglars' tools in his possession. ACCIDENTS AND MISHAPS. A Jealoas Tmnn Attempts Snieide- Two I'alH.
