ALL PLANS PERFECTED FOR MASQUERADE BALL. Pacheco Division, Ladles' Auxiliary to the B. of L. E., hns all plans made for the second annual masquerade ball which will be given by the order at A. O. U.

THE PUBLIC VIEW OF IT Readers of the morning paper (and they are decreasing In an astonishing manner these days) find Its issue of today the space that should have been devoted to news—four whole columns of it- given up to explaining the unworth of the Callfornian. It was an edifying explosion. Indicating as It does, the frenzied state of mind Into which our neighbor Is thrown through a succession of humiliating defeats. And in the meantime, the public to whom newspapers look for support, appears to view the local Journalistic situation differently. The Callfornian has, it believes, about 50 per cent larger circulation than Its contemporary. It has the heaviest advertising patronage. Its job printing department is running night and day. While the morning paper's circulation Is sloughing off by tens and twenties, each clay shows an Increase in the number of readers of the Callfornian. The reasons are plain. The Californian's columns are newsy wid clean. It tries to conduct a newspaper and not a personal 6nr«n. Villiflcatlon and abuse have no place in Its columns. The people appreciate the effort and our circulation grows and that too, among the sober, substantial people of the county. The Californian regrets the (frame of'mind in which its ront-ni- porary finds itself, but the blame for Its IDS-; of husine.-,.- ci:rul •:!.<" and prestige is with It and with no one else HE SAW A TRAGEDY ..THROUGH HIS FIELD GLASSES. i TWO OSTRICHES AT THE COMING FAIR. SAN BERNARDINO, Oct. 9.— Wlliam McKay, a mining man, shot and probably fatally wounded Dr. Collban and another man, name not learned, at Rose mine in the nioun- tains. The shooting was wit nesoed through fleld glasses by Al Watts, caretaker for the company. The cause Is r.Vlleved to have been a dispute over mining claims. STEAMERS IN COLLISION.

Th« Norwood was waterlogged, and the Asuncion's bow store In as a re- BUR of a collision off point Gords. The Norwood was on Its way from tba city *e Gray's Harbor.

Herbert, a detective from Toledo, Ohio, arrived here this morning to take George Mattlln>arreBted in Kern last Thursday by Constable Stroble and Marshal Badger, back to the eastern city to stand trial for graud larceny and burglary. Mattlin made a full confession of his crime at the time of his arrest and In an Interview with Detective Herbert today repeated his story. Herbert says the case against Mattlin Is a strong one. The penalty for grand larceny and burglary Is life Imprisonment In Ohio. The amount of Mattlin's peculation was $375. The crime was committed two blocks from the place where he lived and from the very first the Toledo police were hot on the trail of the prisoner.
