HITHER EXClTISfi PROCEEDINGS DURING THE FIRST MEEHUG. Linscott and White Each Demand a Seat at the Table. It was announced days before that when the Supervisors would meet Tuesday that the proceedings would be out of the ordinary, in view of the fact that Supervisor Linscott would insist on claiming a seat as representative of Pa-jaro district, despite the fact of Supervisor White, according to the returns, having received the majority of the votes. As events proved, the prediction of the prophets proved true, for the proceedings were exciting for a time, but, happily, they did not develop into anything that savored of the prize ring. There was no bloodshed nor even a blow struck. Everything was conducted a good-naturedly as the circumstances would permit. The Board met in the forenoon, but only for a short while, as the question came up regarding the time when the term of the old Board expired. The matter was referred to District Attorney Knight, and an .adjournment taken until 2 P. M. At that hour the room was filled with citizens. Watsonville, So-Q'uel, Aptos, Corrnlitos and Boulder Creek were largely represented. Before County Clerk Miller called the meeting to order Ex-County Clerk Martin and ex-District Attorney Lindsay, members of the Old Guard, who had never known defeat, dropped in. The hero of many a battle on the field of politics, Col. Ed Martin, only remained for a few minutes, just long enough for his friends from the lower end of the county to wish him success in his new business venture, but Lindsay lingered. Why he did so was explained during the course of the proceedings. Knight gave it as his opinion that the term of office of the old Board expired at noon Monday, while the term of the new Board began at noon of that day. County Clerk Miller now proceeded with the roll call. He had no sooner called "Supervisor Collins" than Lindsay, who stood against the railing on the outside of the arena, in which he in days gone by had been a conspicuous figure, announced that he appeared as the attorney for Supervisor Linscott and objected to the name of White being called. This was the first gentle murmuring of the storm that was about to brew. Lindsay, continuing, said that Linscott had for four years been the regularly elected, qualified and acting Supervisor for Pajaro district, and was entitled to serve until his successor had been duly elected and qualified. It was also necessary that a bond be filed. Lindsay claimed tlit the bond had not been filed according to law, which required fhat a fifty-cent revenue stamp should be affixed toi it. Without the stamp the bond, according to Congress, could not, be introduced in evidence . therefore it is valueless and the same as though no bond had been filed. The attorney for White contended that as long as the Superior Court had approved the bond it was no business of the Supervisors to pass upon it. The Supervisors were not a Court, and could not determine the legality or illegality of votes. It was claimed that White had received a certificate of elction, therefore he was entitled to a seat. A roll call was demanded. Lindsay again stepped to the front.say-ing that the Supervisors could by their action completely lift themselves above "Congress or go down several degrees beneath it. The law, which he read, was plain regarding the necessity of placing revenue stamps on a bond, he contended. "Where is tha,t bond?" asked the attorney for White in a tone of voice which Portia might have used when demanding the bond which Shylock held. But, then, Shylock did not bother about revenue stamps. All he wanted was his pound of flesh. All that Linscott or White desired was the honor of a seat at the Supervisors' table. The bomd was produced. No revenue stamp was on it. County Clerk Miller now again proceeded to call the roll, after Lindsay had suggested that the former had the authority to preside. The names of Collins, Esty, Rambo and Baldwin were called, and then there was a short pause, the audience wondering whether White or Linscott would be called next, but the Clerk called White, and White answered "present" in a determined tone. Objection was made by Lindsay. Nominations for Chairman were next in order. Baldwin named Rambo, seconded by White. Collins placed Baldwin ia nomination, but the latter declined, Collins wanted to make the contest for Chairman interesting. Baldwin named Collins. On roll call Rambo was elected, Linscott and White both voting for him. Linscott now introduced Rambo as the Chairman, and then' made for the seat Rambo had vacated. White also started for it. They both reached the chair about the same time, but Linscott i was the quickest, as he slid into it first, while White only had the one arm of the coveted chair to sit on. Linscott remarked "I guess not," as he sat in j the chair. This was a moment of peri-1 loas excitement. It was debatable ! whether the Naval Reserves would have to bs called on to rtm ve Linsc:tt. Then .'"iWSUr? torney, would give the order for the I company to remove Linscott, whether , his duty as attorney to his client would 1 give way to his duty as commanding j officer of the Naval Reserves, j White demanded his seat. Lindsay I told the Chairman: "You nor no man living has the right to remove Mr. Lin scott. What difference does it make where Mr. White or Mr. Linscott sits?" Rambo "Each Supervisor has a des- ignated seat at a desk." . The District Attorney said that White is entitled to the seat. but. still Linscott dirt not move. He sat n motionless ns the cupola on the Court-House, with a 10OK or determination in, his face.

For Hospital Steward Geo. R. Hodg-don was re-elected. For County Physician Dr. B. A. Plant and Dr. F. E. Morgan were named. The vote was: For Morgan, White, Baldwin,, Rambo; for Plant, Collins, Esty. Morgan was declared elected Supervisor Baldwin suggested that $(10 a month is sufficient salary for the Janitor, but a motion o that effect was lost. E. Alzina was re-elected Janitor, On motion of Baldwin J. W. Scott was awarded the privilege of burying the indigent dead. Linscotfs demand that he be allowed to vote, on all nominations or motions was denied by the Clerk. Widow Bedott. i The presentation of "Widow Bedott" 'that has not been seen in this city for i several years was given at Cook's Opera j House lust night with Horace Ewing in : the title role, supported by a capable (company.

Mr. Ewing's make up was excellent and he brought out the ridiculous in a droll way that was very taking. Many new specialties have been added in the way of popular songs, and the members of the company all have excellent voices. Democrat and Chronicle, Rochester, New York.

The election contest of Snibley vs. Palmtag was tried by Judge Smith in the Superior Court of San Benito county, who declared that each candidate having received the same number of votes there was no election. The Advance says Palmtag will appeal the case to the Supreme Court, which will have the effect of tying the matter up for about eighteen months. In the meantime Palmtag, having received the certificate of election, will continue to act as Supervisor. All salary and emoluments, however, will be retained by the Auditor awaiting the decision of the Supreme Court. Horrible agony is caused by Piles, Burns and Skin Diseases.
