Fresno $3000 'Stockton 2200 San Jose 2600 Los Angeles 7500 Sacramento 8117 S?m Francisco and Oakland are the only cities In California that surpassed Baliersfleld in the proceeds of Tag Day. San Francisco had $28,000, but if her people had given in proportion to population, her tag day fund would have been nearly, If not quite, a million. Oakland and Berkeley raised $22,000. On the basis of the Bakersfleld scale per capital, tho<w two cities would have raised neaily a half million. On actual cash, Bakersfleld's tag (lay netted over $2000 more than Fresno, as much as Fresno and Stockton combined. In actual value, including land donation, Bakersfleld yielded Ou per cent more than the total fund of Fresno, Stockton, and San Jose. Not bad in a city of 10,000 population. The full returns are not yet to be had. The oil fields and the'Muricona and Midway country have not yet been heard from, nor have the other pans of the county.
