SHARP ADVANCE IN WHEAT. The Sluggish Local Market Is the Result of a Combine. FAIR SYNDICATE HOLDINGS. The Shippers Will Not Handle This Grain Except at Their Own Figures. The wheat situation in San Francisco is remarkable in many respects. Regardless of the iact that Eastern and foreign markets have been steadily on the rise for the past ten days the local quotations have shown no appreciable difference one way or the other, except during the last two or three days. Yesterday the market advanced 5 cents over a similar rise of the day before. Outside of these two spasmodic efforts the market has not kept pace with the Eastern and foreign boom. On the street it is said that this somewhat peculiar condition of affairs is due to tiie famous Fair purchase, now commonly known as the "Syndicate wheat." It is said that the wheat at Port Costa, over 200,000 tons, is a constant menace to the local market and for that reason quotations here have not advanced in like proportion with Chicago and New York. Another reason assigned by the knowing ones for the slugpish local condition is the enormous freight rates — 35 shillings from here to Europe. The syndicate, however, seems to be the real cause of the trouble. It is rumored on •Change that the principal ship-owners have agreed among themselves not to buy any of the Fair wheat except at their own figures. This silent warfare, whether there is any truth in the reported shippers' combine or not, has forced the quotations steadily down and all through fear that the "syndicate" might throw its 200,000 tons oh the market at any moment. The shippers, it is stated, have practically chartered all the ships in port or to arrive here for the next ninety days, and for that reason nobody will buy it and the holders cannot ship it themselves, except at ruinous rates. The holders at present are in what might very properly be called a box. On this point, a man prominent on 'Change and closely related to the famous "syndicate" said yesterday: "I don't wish to have my name used, for certain business reasons, "but I am firmly of the opinion that the shippers have fermed a combine. They all deny this very vigorously, but everything certainly points that way now. There is no use denying the fact that the shippers hold the whip handle now, but I think the other B?de will have an inning before very long. "The 'syndicate,' as it is called, "is in no very great hurry to dispose of its holdings, and they can afford to wait until freight rates get near the reasonable line. Sixty days ago the rate was only 25 shillings to Europe, while to-day it is 35. I feel perfectly sure that if those in charge of the Fair wheat should throw it on the market, freight rates would at once advance to 40 and even 50 shillings. lam of the opinion that it is this fight or combine of shippers that has caused the local market to remain at practically the same thing." Wheat went up on call yesterday o^c per cental, in sympathy with an advance at Liverpool and an extra spurt at Chicago. No one seems to know the cause of the sharp advance. It is Drobable that a reported "bull" squeeze by Armour & Co. of Chicago and a supposed shortage in the Argentine crop of 25 per cent may have ha<l something to do with it. Shipping wheat advanced from &I*4 cents to 90 and 90W cents yesterday. H. Dutard. who is in with McGlauflin <fc Co. on the syndicate deal, declined to discuss the wheat situation. "I am simply an agent for McGlauflin & Co., and consequently am not in a position to express an opinion on the price of wheat," said Mr. Dutard yesterday. "When we have any wheat to sell, I guess there will be plenty of buyers, but at the present time we are not in the market. I have no opinion about the price of wheat or what figure the 'syndicate' cuts in it, for the simple reason that I am only an agent." MAY BE DISBANDED. The Insurance Men Are Divided on the Question of Continuing the Fire Patrol. Chief Sullivan of the Fire Department is greatly disquieted over the prospect of the disbanding of the underwriters' fire patrol because of the dissensions among the San Francisco insurance companies. The patrol Question is still a mooted one among the insurance men. At the last meeting of the Board of Underwriters it was actually proposed to disband the patrol altogether and to get along without it. No second was made to the motion. The Chief, when he heard of this, Btarted to visit the defecting companies and to rind out from them just how they stand on the proposition. "I spent all day yesterday tr}'ing to see those managers who have refused to pay," he said last evening, "and I found that there are ten companies which are holding together aeainst assisting the patrol system. Of these the Home and Phoanix, of which Captain Gill is the manager, seem to be the leaders, and I think if those companies would agree to support the patrol the others would not hesitate. "I went to see Captain Gill yesterday and had quite a talk with him, but 1 am afraid he is asking more than the other companies will agree to before he will support the patrol. He says if the other companies will agree to the terms he wishes to make i he will join the patrol again; but then they # have fought over agreements before now, and they are still at war. "I think it would be a great shame if the v patrol should be allowed to drop. They think the City will take hold of it, but there they ara mistaken. The City only pretends to put out fires, and when we re- Bpond to an alarm all we think of is to pot out the fire, not to save property which our apparatus may destroy. The patrol ■ does that, and, if they drop* the patrol, all the stuff the patrol would save will be dettroyed in v c future, and the insurance companies will have t«i pay for it." NATIONAL ROAD OLUB. The Guardsmen Who Are Bicycle Riders Have Organized. The members of Companies C and G, First Regiment of the National Guard of California who are bicycle riders have organized the National Road Club and elected the following officers : President, Captain E. C. Sutiiffe; vice-president, W. F. Hanrahan: secretary, L. H. F. McKee; treasurer, C. P. Le Breton. The membership is limited to active and veteran members of the two companies named. J. F. Norton was chosen captain of the club, William Menrel first and H. F. Hicks second lieutenant. The emblem chosen is a six-inch live-pointed red star. The first rnn of the club will be this evenin;., when it will take part in the wlieelmrn's great parade in behalf of good roads and better streets. The club starts out with twenty names on the membership roll. YOUNG WOMAN'S OLUB. It I> Treated to a Version of the Silver Qaeation. There was a pood attendance at the open mei-tinp of the Young Woman's .suffrage Club in Pythian Cabtle Tnc«day night. The evening's entertainment commenced , with "Love Rules the World," sung in a very effective manner by Mrs. H. Lewis. This was followed by a mandolin solo by Professor D. Mansfield, who gave selections from "Th« Bohemian Girl." The speaker of the evening was Charles W. Reed, who from a gold man's point of view gave a version of the silver question, stating that as the women will soon have the ballot, they should k»ow something about the finance of the country. A YOLO GIRL'S DEATH. Lizzie May Burke Dies at St. Lake's Hospital Under Distressing Conditions. The body of Lizzie May Burke, aged 24 y^ars, and a resident of Yolo, California, was brought to the Morzue last night. She died at St. Luke's Hospital at noon yester- day. The father of the unfortunate young woman, C. V. Burke, who came from Yolo yesterday, made the following statement: On the 9th of April I drove my daughter to the depot at Yolo, as she was J»oins to Sacramento, as the family thought at the time, to do some shopping. Several day* passed and she did not return, so I wrote to the proprietor of the State Hotel, where she *ald she would stay tvhile in Sacramento, inquiring about her. He answered me ihat she had not been there, but that he had received a letter from her at San Franri«co telling him to forward her mail to the city, giving her addrexs in onre of younj* Pr. (VDonnell, G4f) Washington street, which I understand i<> his private residence. My Mifpieions became arousnd, 50 I went to Elmer C. Zane, manager ol the Yolo Orchard Company, and accused htm of ruining my daughter. He did not deny the charge, but said that the girl was being well crvred for. My wife and I came to the city and found our girl in a 'ittle room where Dr. O'Donnell has his residence and we had her removed to St. Lute's Hospital, where she died. I did not know she was dead until I came to the City to-dar. I went direct to the hospital and passed on to her room. I rapped and there wa,> no reply, so I opened the door and went into the room. It was empty. George Orbell, a miller, living in Alameda, and to whom the pirl was engaged to be married, said last night that he called at Dr. O'Donnell's place when he learned that Miss Burke was there. She had assumed the name of Smith. Dr. Dozier of St. Luke's Hospital said he did not think that an operation had been performed on Miss Burke. THE INCOME TAX DECISION Clerks Thrown Out of Employment by the Recent Decree. Collector Welburn Thinks the Supreme Court Made a Great Mistake. The decision rendered by the United States Supreme Court declaring the income tax unconstitutional seriously affects a large number of clerks* It means that something like 500 men will be thrown out of employment in the United Slates, though the Pacific Coast is less seriously affected than any other portion of the country. Only five men in this district will be officially beheaded, and there will not be exceeding fifteen in all the coast States thrown out of work. Although the act has been dtclared unconstitutional, there is still a lot of clerical work to be done, and the five employes in this district will continue to draw Uncle Sam's coin for several weeks to come. This district is the only one in America where the tax has not been collected. Many of the people subject to the income tax desired to pay cash when their statements were filed, but in every instance Collector \Velburn refused to accept it. He told all who desired to pay that they had better hold on to their money until the matter was finally acted upon. He held all along that the Supreme Court would declare the act unconstitutional, and consequently did not care to burden his office with a lot of money that would finally be returned, which would mean a great deal of technical detail, that would be troublesome, if nothing more. If the income tax had been declared ' valid this department would have handled i exactly $498,736. As it is months of extra i labor and hard work ge for naught and [ Mr. TTelbr.rn has only a lot of wothless I paper that at one time was worth thousands of dollars to show for his work. The following telegram shows what disposition will be made of the books and returns now in the Collector's possession : Washington, D. C, May 20. Collector Welburn, San Francisco: Income tax law declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. Stop all work in connection therewith and send to this office at once, under seal, all book«, assestment lists, returns and records in your office or the hands of deputies relating to the income tax. Jobeph S. Miller, Commissioner. "Personally I am very glad that such a decision had been reached," said Mr. TV elburn yesterday. "I mean, of course, as regards the clerical work of the office. While it throws rive men out of employment, it relieves the office of a lot of extra work, the time for which we could ill spare. "I wish the people to understand that all the returns made by them will be sent to Washington. I expect hundreds will write for their statements, and to answer each would mean a lot of oxtra labor for this office. It will take several weeks to finish up the office work relating to the income tax, after which the men now employed in that work must go. I regret it, Dut can't help the matter in any way. "I think the Supreme Court made a mistake when it decided the income tax unconstitutional, if for no other reason than that such a c«urse will create a lot of dissatisfaction throughout the country. The decision means that a large number of people who have hitherto been opposed to silver will now join the silver party. They will do this because they believe that Wall street is at the back of the decision. '•Fully two-thirds of those subject to the income tax were heartily in favor of the measure. I know this to be true from actual contact with the people. If this be true of those subject to the tax, then it must have been 'a popular law with the masses." COMPANIONS ADJOURN. List of the Newly Elected Officers— A Banquet to Delegates. The Supreme Grand Circle of the Companions of the Forest, A. O. F., brought its labors to a close yesterday.

THE BOARD OF EDUCATION A Tart Little Tilt Over the Distribution of Patronage. HANY DIPLOMAS GRANTED. A Janltress Allowed to Hold Her Position and Run a Neighboring Saloon. Dr. Clinton, in an effort to put Patrick Magee back on the payroll of the Board of Education, whence his resolution of two weeks ago displaced him, stirred up a lively row at the meeting of the board last night. Patrick Magee is the sole support of his mother and two brothers and he was a laborer in tue school gardens or something of that sort. At last night's meeting the doctor appealed to the board, because of the mother and two brothers, to reinstate him. But there was a diposition to say no. Then Dr. Clinton said he would demand it as his right. He wasn't going to see any one man — and he looked over toward Chairman McElroy of the Committee on Buildings and Gronnds— monopolize the patronage of the board. He intended at the next meeting to present a complete list of the employes of the board and to question by what right they were employes. He wanted to know by what right Chairman McElroy had appointed an assistant gardener at this time, without even consultine the members of his committee. McElroy said that as long as he was chairman of the Committee on Buildings and Grounds he would exercise his judgment as to whom to employ to do the work. Ambrose put the question straight to McElroy. and H.-iwley, chairman of the Supplies Committee, as to how many were employed by them. McElroy confessed to but four, and Hawley only to two Then Clinton read the salary list for the last month, which accounted for nineteen, and Ambrose wanted to know who employed the other thirteen. tfawley admitted that Ambrose was on his committee, but said he was on the wfonp end. Ambrose said that he knew he was on the wrong end, and if Mr. Hawley or any other member intended to ignore him because he was a Democrat, it was time that it was thoroughly understood. Murdock moved to drop the whole matter pending Dr. Clinton's report at the next ■ meeting and McElrov wanted to adjourn. The matter was finally held over. A communication from the Grand Jury created another little breeze. Addressed to I the board it reads: Dear Sirs: The scvhool committee of the Grand Jury desires to call yonr attention to the state | of affairs in the vicinity of the Laguna Honda j School. Adjoining the scho#l site to the north ; there is a roadside inn, the resort of sporting j people, including women of the demi-mrmde class, and their caronsals and living example have a tendency to deprave the moral status of the school children and to cause self- respecting families to keep their children from attendine school. W> find upon inquiry that a Mrs. Chadwiek ! has charge of this saloon and at the same time j holds the position of Janitress of the achool. She claims that owlnjr to her pull she cannot be discharged and trill continue to run her nimshoD. We demand that some action to abate this evil be attended to at once. Respectfully, Charles W. Irkdale, W. J. Newman, Committee of Board of Education and Public Schools. This report has been approved by the Grand Jnrv, and it requests the board to take immediate action. w. H. Gacan, Foreman Mrs. Chad wick's is a place somewhat renowned for its milk punches. It seems that the children have to go through her grounds to reach the school. There was a rather hysterical discussion of the matter. Mr. Muruock moved that the school be closed. Compte thought the saloon ought to be closed, but Barrett said the board had no control over the saloon. Henderson moved that Mrs.Chadwick be removed as jamtress. Barrett opposed this, too, and the whole matter went over until the 15th, Carew remarking that Mrs. Chadwick's "pull" seemed to be something quite tangible. The following diplomas were granted: To Miss Delia E. Page, life diploma, grammar school grade. Miss F May Sproston and Miss Mary H. Mailinc, recommended in the State Board of Education for Ptate educational diplomas, grammar schoftl grade. Miss Bertha M. E. Wagner, a grammar grade certificate. Mi<s Rose N. Zellerbach, a grammar grade certificate. Mis« M. W. O'Malley, a grammar grade certificate. Miss Caroline R. Driscoll, a grammar grade certificate. Miss Maria A. Kaiser, a grammar grade certificate. Itlsa Lizzie A. Freiermuth, a grammar grade certificate. " Mi^s Frank Shaw, a grammar grade certificate. Miss Mary McCauley, a grammar grada certificate. Grammar grade certificates were renewed as follows: Misses Lfflfe Cashtn, Zoe Hughes, Kate Kelly, Annie J. Rock, Kate Cronln, Mnrtha Hirks, Harriet Worden, M. E. Doyle, Eleanor McLane, Anna A. Love, Mary G. Covle, Annette Murphy, Delia Clayburgh, Rose" Cohen, Mrs E. M. J'oole and Miss Rachel Ephraim; the special bookkeeping certificate of Miss M E J>oyle; the primary grade certificate of Miss ♦ San O. Fanvell; a grammar grade certificate to Miss Nellie H. Ne> lan upon the result of the late semi-annual examination. A resolution asking that the Supervisors provide for $10,000 in the school apportionment for four instructors and apparatus for physical culture in the schools was adopted. Another resolution by Barrett calling attention to the need of a night-school in the district between the Lincoln and Horace Mann schools was also adopted. Bids were onened for the reconstruction of the North Cosmopolitan and James Lick schools, the lowest for the former being that of M. C. Brennan & Co., |15,000. For heating the school the lowest bid was that of \\ illiam Cronan, $1960. For the addition to the James Lick school the lowest bid was J. J. O'Brien, $3740 IN CHARITY'S NAME. •• The Artist's Dream" to Be Performed at the California This Evening an<l Friday. This evening there will be given at the California Theater a benefit performance of "The Artist's Dream." The proceeds will be donated to the Ladies' Protection and Relief Society. The piece is a pretty transcription of the romantic and tragic story "Genevra." It is told as a dream of Lovell, a poor painter, who is enamored of a nobleman's daughter. He falls asleep by the fireplace and dreams that the lady descends from the picture and confesses her love for him. He reminds her of the difference in their stations, and while doing so the vision vanishes. He springs out after her, and goes to the Baron for his daughter's hand The introduction of the suitor, the rival the duel and the reconciliation with the Baron will be shown by tableaux, closing the first act. 6 In the second act the dream continaes and the young artist fancies himself in the baronial hall and sees the wedding festivities, in which he and Lillian play the principal part. The bride, becoming weary of the dance breaks away, and rushing from among the gnests challenges them to find her in her hiding place. The entire party search for her in vain, and after they leave the garret in which she is hidden Lillian tries to escat>« * r om t&* chest, which has a spring lock, but hhre r c *^ 8 for asaist *nee are never There is supposed to be a lapse of many years between the second and third acts. The children are playing on a rainy afternoon in the old garret and are interrupted by Lorell, who has become old and almost insane since the loss of x£ l8 I £ nd . e - Whlle endeavoring to replace the lid of a rotten chest he discovers the remains of the bridal array and is killed by the shock. This has, of course, been a dream from which the vonng artist is finally awakened by bis little sister, who comes in to be sung to sleep. There will be several other matters of interest placed before the audience, and the benefit promises to be a success. TEACHERS' SALARIES, A Possibility That the School Fund Will Be Short In July. Treasurer Widber is quite confident that there will be money enough in the treas ury to pay all May demands against the school fund, salaries included. If there is not quite enough a few teachers will not be paid. The June salaries, however, will depend on the apportionment of the State school fund in the first week in Jnly. It is impossible to tell now within $50,000 what tfie city will receive from the State about July 1, and it cannot be toM until that time, because the amount received at Sacramento will depend on the amount turned in by the various county Treasurers. A few days ago Mr. Widber turned $493,897 27 in State taxes over to the State, and of this $'249,945 70 was school money. When the reports are all in Sacramento the apportionment will be made. The City's share will be unexpectedly reduced this year. Anywhere from $50,000 to $75,000 may be subtracted from that $250,000. The teachers or a part of them may suffer a parin; of their vacation pleasures or at least a broker's shaving of warrants. BUITKER HILL. The CeUbratlon That Will Be Held June 17. The Bunker Hill Association held a meeting Monday night to receive the reports of committees, who are making great efforts to make the celebration at Glenwood on June 17 a grand success.
