Be Particular r WENT III JOY 30 Days Fresher Than Eastern Shortening!" MADE ON THE COAST BY THE CUDAHY PACKING CO. LOS AN3^LcO SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 31.—King Carnival rulea supreme in this clt» onlght; ruled over the gladdest, mad deat, merriest New Year's eve cele- irjltton ever known in the city that has given that night of all the year over to an abandonment of joy for many decades past. It was not only the passing of the old year and the jlrth of the new that stirred the vast throngs which Jostled and laughed the hours away on the busiest thoroughfares; but the thought that Market street, where the New Year's eve carnival first started so many years ago, Is again a shopping center, flanked on both sides with bigger and bettei buildings than those which were destroyed In the fire of 1906. Three separate celebrations took place simultaneously tonight; that on Market street, which was brilliantly Illuminated from the ferry building to Van Ness avenue, a distance of .fifteen blocks. That on Plllmore Street which has earned for Itself the name of the "Uttle White Way" since the fire, where a forest of Christmas greens, thickly jeweled with blazing electric lights covered many blocks and that on Mission street, the new business section far out toward the city's southern boundary. It Is estl mated that fully 300,000 people com posed the seething, ever-shifting tide of humanity which wandered restless ly and noisily along these thorough fares tonight. The Market street celebration waa perhaps the greatest, although Fill more street was packed to suffoca tlon throughout the night. From .ear* ly dark the merrymakers were gath ering, defying (he misty rain tha came with. aubdoWi, the crowds grow ing more and more dense as th hours went by until th« operation « the street cars became Impossible an service was suspenSe'd. The main feature of the Market street carnival was the automobile parade In which close to a thousand car*, loaded down with laughing, carefree men and women, took part. As the ears swept down the lane that was opened for them between walls of cheering, horn-blowing, nolse-mak- <bg humanity, a steady bombardment of .'Mjnfcttl was kept up by both sides and the" Streets were soon Uttered with tiny, Tjjultl-colored fragments of paper.

WON FIRST PLACE AMONG AMERICAN CARS AND SECOND PLA6E IN INTERNATIONAL LIGHT CAR ROAD RACE After li'iidinj; the entire first half of what proved to be the most ex -it ing and most stubbornly fouyht speed battle in automobile 'wing history, the Huick Model 10's gasoline tank came loose and because of stops totalling over twenty minutes from this trouble ,the Buick lost the 19G milt? Savanah race by six minutes. Hilliard in his $3300 Lancia wen ; all credit is due him. Bur- niau in bis $1660 Buick gave him the fight of his life and brought his car in with such a lead «Ter the remaining contestants that there was no question concerning the standard which the Buick has set in low-priced automobile construction.

PWH According to notification received sessors. "Since equalization by tne raising or lowering of entire counties Is open to so much serious objection, It is better to accomplish the same result' so far as It may be done through exchange of Information by members of [ the state board and county assessors and by friendly criticism of the work of the latter." The board suggests to the legislature that It be clothed with the following powers: To Increase or lower any assessment on the assessment roll. ters of grave Importance will be considered relative to the 1909 county assessments." it la suggested that these "matters of Importance" will seriously effect the pockets of the taxpayers. It ' ' real estate Improvements, or personal ' property excepting, of course, solvent credits and mortgages.

Thousands of men and women watched the year out in these brilliant es- the year approached, a veritable salvo of popping champagne corks greeted the passing of the old and the coming of the new. v But despite all the fun and frivolity of the night, there was little need for the host of police officers so carefully disposed about the streets. San Francisco maintained Its reputation as a city of good-natured crowds and there were few accidents or un-1 pleasant Incidents to mar the opening i of the new year. It was a wild, fun- loving spirit that animated the.! throngs as the New Year's eve spirit j has always been In San Francisco.

When in Doubt There will be no baseball in Fresno next year; So says A. B. Rvans, president of the locul baseball association. The statement of Evans was made to a few men prominent in ioeal affairs. He lias icKt too much money In Imselmll, Hiiys Kvans, and while he llki-s the game ho does not propose to put up any more colu out of his own pocket for the puriiose of maintaining a hlsh class team In Fresno. Hi- cares little, says Evans further, whether the state league \vlll be nil "outlaw" organization next year or avail Itself of national protection. So far as he is concerned Fresno is out. of i he running.
