The following Is the final report of the Oakland Cooking School Association, made by! the Secretary: AU ladies interested in a school of cookery, to be taught by Mb Juliet Corson, of New York City.f were invited! In September last, through the public prints of I Oakland, to meet at the Congregational! Chapel.

In response to this invitation the rooms wer filled at the appointed honr. Dr. Anaette Buckel presented the subject, stated that she bad been for some time corresponding with Corson in regard to it, and read and expounded extract from Miss Corson's letters concerning terms. Miss Corson's nsual terms, it appeared, were as follows: Traveling expenaea and board, and $100 per week as fees for teaching. But in view of the enormous distance between Oakland and New York, of Miss Carson's great interest in tho work on this coast, and of her cherished desire for a long time to visit California, Miss Corson offered exceptional terms to the ladies of Oakland.

If her traveling expenses and support were provided for, said the letters, she would forego her usual fees, -tor those fees, Oakland ladies should not: be responsible- On the contrary, fees should be trusted to the enthusiasm which, unless Oakland were unlike other places, she should create after her arrival. So much interest and such disinterested ness on the part of a stranger, were most inspiring. Dr. Buckel announced that she herself coald do no more in the matter, oh account of professional duties, but other ladies came forward, and many pledged themselves to take lessons. A COOKING SCHOOL ASSOCIATION Was formed.

Mrs. Edward HunJ who had long tines added fins cookery the other branches taught in a privaJ school under her supervision, was ajer-suaded to accept the Presidency of th organization, with th following list of responsible Oakland ladies as her associate officers, Mrs. Albert Aliller, Mrs. A J. Ralston, Jess Wall, Mrs.

Lui Janin. Mrs. A. Liilincrantz, Airs. Fred erick B.

Ginn. Mrs. R. E. Cole.

Mr. Wm Sherman, Mrs. Hugh J.Glenn, Mrs. Frank M. Smith, Mrs.

is. K. Prentiss, llrvli W. MoNear, Mrs. Chas.

H. Chamberlain, Mrs. K. G. Mathew.

Mrs. K. C. Wil liams. Mrs.

S. E. Henshaw. It was on September 20th that these steps were taken. In a week thereafter guarantee fund of $600 was advanced by six ladies, and by the end September a proposition based on the terms thus offered to the ladies of Oakland was forwarded Miss Corson by and accepted by her through the telegraph immediately upon receipt.

Mis Corson being notified by telegraph that time was of importance, it was supposed that shelwould start immedi ately for California, and preparations want rapidlv forward. The Oakland evening Tribcnk, always interested in social affairs; always a friend to the ladies or Oakland, and one which has helped them in many an undertaking, gave to the enterprise, from the firat, a generous and. powerful support. Notices, locals, and articles of all sort on the subject of cookery followed each other in its widely-read columns, and kept the matter before the public Mrs. Hugh J.

Glenn made the generoua offer of her beautiful home, than unoccupied, as a place for the cooking-school. The kind proposal was gratefully declined, as involving too much responsibility in th car of such handsome premises, but it contributed, all the same, to the eclat of the undertaking. Practice classes and demonstration classes filled up rapidly. Ladies enrolled themselves in the former, ladies purchased tickets for th latter. Three, four, five weeks went by, and a4at it was announced that Miss Corson was on her way.

Then, to crown the whole, Mr. A. N. Towne generously assigned to the Oak land ladies a special car, with the privilege of filling it, and in it a party'went up the road to meet, and give her welcome. ANTICIPATION AND REALITY.

Thu inaugurated, the Oakland School of Cookery promised abundant success. But it soon appeared that Miss Corson bad oome here in a state of health which was not to be depended cn for carrying out the engagements and pledges of the Association. Unexpected anxiety on this score, resulted in an entire change of arrangements. The ddemonstration lessons were reduced from six weeks to three, and ladies holding tickets or th is course were notified by repeated advertisements to secure before a certain date the lessons due them." and were informed that at this date these lessons would close. The practice lessons were reduced from twelve to six for each class; the practice classes were notified of the change, and on half of their money (paid in advance) was refunded.

By this method, all the! lessons of all the classes ware compressed into the space ei one month. i This change had been a little anticipated bv th association a by the classes. It was a change adopted after mature deliberation, as the best method of securing to the ladies, holding tickets, the value of their, investment. Though taken by surprise at finding the demonstration leeaooa contracted, aa to time, from six weeks to three, those ladies would have been still more surprised had the lessons failed altogether. The Oakland School of Cookery lasted therefor just one month; from November 19th Dece-nber 19th.

Reference to the report the' treasurer, published herewith, will show the items of its expenditure. A little over $2,000 passed through its treannry. Of this. Miss Corson received nearly $1,000, or literally, support for a month at a cost of $146 30, and also $825 in cash, making an aggregate to Miss1 Corson of $971 30. Th guarantee fund, th sum refunded to classes, and running exbensea, consumed th jr The true value of the School of Cookery lies in what the Oakland ladies themselves those who conducted the school, aad those who attended it have done by it means.

They have, headed a movement in favor of industrial education; they have made one branch of such education the TRAILING THE CROOKS. I Masterly Detective Work Accom-plfshed 1)7 the Police. Hew tat Sat Cracker Wert Raw to Earth A Sterat Cbase amd Itomg QmvTht) Klegaat Ddeiv ffkt Worked la Iroa Captala Pamjrea's CkaM During the past three monthi the police of California have been trailing a gang of eaie crackers, wfaoee excellent end acute understanding: of all the require ments of their nefarious profession, enabled them during that time to elude the beat detectives in the State. Black Bart, himself; was not more "fly" than these men, and it would seem as though no safe, however "burglar, proaf" could withstand their assaults. Many of tha safes which they broke open mint have been extremely poor affairs, for the "crooks" had no mors trouble in forcing them than if the "boxes" had been ordinary wooden packing case.

When the jimmy and the 1 crowbar failed, i a pinch of' gunpowder was sufficient to shatter the combination and the contents of the Bfe thereafter belonged to the thieves. It is estimated that the cracksmen, during THEIR OPERATIONS Here, cleaned up at least $8,000 in money and Jewelry. They came from the Eastern States, and probably have a good criminal record on the other side of the Kockv Mountains, i It is thought that the gang consists of three men and one woman, the latter a female weighing over 20b rxraoo. who might, as lar as appear ances went, have entertained dukes andH marquises in a princely mansion. Tiffs.

Quartette were rapid in their movements, pas robbery scarcely becoming public when another in a different portion of the State would be announced. ihey piew open safes in San Jose, Kedwood, Santa Cruz, Stockton. San I rancisco ana Oakland In Saa Francisco they forced six- or seven aafea with excellent financial results and last Monday night they "went throuKh" five others in Sacramento beinor interrupted in their attempt upm the safe in Dwyer's faro bank at four clock in the morning by AX ALARM Which was given by a woman awakened from sleep in- an adjoining apartment, by the noise which the robbers made in endeavoring to open the "safe. Thu was their -last series of "jobs," and led to their capture yesterday by the San Francisco Before making any extensive, raids in San Francisco, they operated in the outlying districts gradually closing and descending Oakland previous to their advent in the metropolis. In every instance their plans were well laid and all traces carefully concealed, so that it was almost impossible to follow them after i they had secured their -plunder.

The first I cine obtained was the fact that all their work was of the same character, showing a thorough knowledge of every weak point in. a and the surest and most rapid methods of opening it. In additio'n to this slight clue, the detectives have only been able to use i their information regarding suspicious characters and new arrivals in the State, in the working of which, have displayed great shrewdness and an extraordinary amount4 of cunning and acumen. The first work which THE CROOKS Did in this, city was in East Oakland, when they cracked the safe of a grocery I dealer named red. iSrages, securing about $175.

Tjbis robbery was committed on the night of November 15th. and the same -night they opened the safe of A. Font, freneral merchandising dealer, but i they only secured a small amount Of jew- I tk. ant ow-mA via xwoiuuci ifii, bikkotuu wu the store of W. A.

Adams, oa San Pablo avenue, corner of Twenty-first street was but noth- i ing was found, and the robbers probably returned to San Francisco on one of the early trains, after lying concealed in the suburbs until they could pass through the a.

I V. wibuuufa exciwug niuarft. pium time Capt. Pufnves, aud detectives Fuller and Holland have been at work day and night oh the case. Following a certain ciue, taey were soon convinced tut tney were on the right track, and soon after "spotted" three elegant dudes as, the cracksmen.

-These fellows would, have VERT DISTINGUE INDIVIDUALS Ib any society. They dressed neatly, and in costly attire, but not flashily, or even in a manner that would lead an observer to elasi them with i the gambling fraternity. They were simply young men of leisure, apparently strangers in California, sojourning temporarily for Their ages were apparently about 25, 30 and 35 years respectively, and one of them was particularly noticeable on account of a handsome gold watch chain and bar guard. These men were eloeely shadowed by the detectives, and every detail of clothing even to the buttons on then coats and vests impressed upon the memory. This atteution to minute detail afterwards proved exceedingly important, and will probably aid materially in securing a conviction.

Last Monday one of Capt. Pumyea's "look-outs" at the trains sent hi wnrrf that the hii-da wore wincine their flight to Sacramento by the 4 o'clock train (afternoon) from West Oakland. Captain Pamyea immediately communicated with Chief Crowley of San suggesting that they be followed on the 11 o'clo ck freight, but the Utter replied that perhaps it would be "best to wait further developments. In the' mean time, full details of the j' BfOVIKKNTS Or THE BURGLARS On the train had been sent in from Suisun, tha fact that a woman was in their company being telegraphed. That night they rattled the old iron of Sacramento to the extent of five sales and a loss to the owners of an aggregate of (1,250.

A San Francisco detective had, notwithstanding previous arrangements, landed in Sacramento on the 11 o'clock freight and was found there on Tuesday morning by Capt, Pumyea who took the morning train. The work, however, had been accomplished, and- the thieves had flown by the six o'clock train for San Francisco. A search by Certain Pumvea. at Jjwver'a faro bank. where the last attempt was made, remitted in the finding of a bar guard, three links of a gold chain, and one of the peculiar buttons worn by one of the three men who bad shadowed.

These souvenirs had been lost in the flight, being craped off in the exit which the burglar made through tha transom when the woman Save the. alarm. The identity of the men, owever. had been established, and soon as It waa positively known jihat they had returned to San Francisco, it naa resolved to take them into custody. They were arrested yesterday and are "booked ontbesaaall book" of the San Francisco police office previous to charge based on evidence which is being secured by the detectives.

I Puat and Geary, with the same faculty, u-iui eelior. lately dextrfryed by ore. i tk- farnd 4 5- i What the Oldest Xahatoitaats Pre dict Hearardlas; th MetorodpV aaJ avahailrtiea Shis Btatsa Iwtereatlaar Celaeideade. The native Calif ornians, of this section of the Stated who date their knowledge of the seasons iback over sixty years, either personally or through tradition, state that dry season: this year is' almost Inevitable. They base -this prediction on tbe fact that an unusually dry season 1 has occurred -at intervals of twenty years since 182324, and that ths seatun of 1889-84 must be dry or all their signs and records fail utterly.

Thu far the prediction sewn correct, and there is every prospect that tb present will be as dry as wsre ths seasons twenty, forty, and sixty years ago. The traditions are unanimous ft-, i hinr nkrehed and burned by tbe ardsnt ray sof ths son and the lack of moisture. In 1843-4. a simitar drought occurred, and in 1863-4, only 8 36 inches of rain fell. This season twsnty years later we have only had 4.08 inches of tain from July 1st, 1883, the precipitation for the month of December being only 1.15 The Californtana also subdivided the! period of twenty year into epochs of seven jrears, ach seventh year marxing a very siignt raiuiaii.

ju. iu 1843-4, there was but a light rainfall; seven Years later, in 1850-61. tbe raintau was only 4.71 inches; in 1857-58 19 inches fall, being wholly inadequate for th country; in 1863-64 only 8.36 inches fell; in 1870-71 the rainfall wm 8.47; in 1877-78 32 inche tell, but- th previous year only 11.71 inche fell. season is the seventh 'yearaccoiding to this calculation and should, in due i course ot coinci dence. be: a drv season, thus cob firminsr tha theories Of the Californians.

Dr. Tr'emblv. however, who has devoted a great deal of attention to local meteor' olozv thinks that as the records of the weather previous to 1849 were not k-pt as closely as they have been since, it is pos sible tbat there may be seme inaccuracies in the alleged recurrence of dry reasons. The facta as far as can be ascertained. however are remarkable, and the accurate records kept of late years tend to confirm the inature thereof to a very remarkable degree.

The heaviest rainfall of which we have-any accurate record occurred follows: 1849-50, 38 inches; 185253, 36 15 inches; J867-68, 32 inches; 1877-78, 32 15 inche: 1880-81, 30 84 inches. The total rainfall to the prrsent date in 1881 82, was 8 inches! 1880-81. 13; inches; 1SZ-U, 11 inches. I THE INFANTICIDE. A One-armed Men Aeensecl of "DI- poslnif" of tbe Haby'i Body.

Sullivan, a young man arrested about a week ago for shooting another young man named Ford Keneally near Alvarado, is in the County Jail awaiting action in his case either by the District Attorney or the Grand Jury. According to his statement of the case was in no way to blame for the affair. He says that about a week ago went duck-shooting on the Alvarado marshes accompanied by a friend. Tkav croased the bay wish Knaeeliy aad a friend of the latter, although the two par-lie were in no way connected until they arrived at the hunting ground. Here they disposed themselves so as to produce tne best mutual result, and, while patrol ing the marsh, bullivan fired at a dock which he wounded.

Store at Ceater Street Station Gutted.

It Wuuld appear aa if 'a gang of house breakers had settled nppn Oakland as a permanent field for iheir eperations. Withia tb last two weeks some half dozen stores and dwellings have been forcibly entered and robbed a greater or lessej extent of their contents. The latest of these burglaries occurred last night, the victim being Mr. K-S Ormsby, who keeps a jewelry store at No. 1458 Sv-euthlBtreet, directly faefng Center station.

The thieves gained ant-entrance to the store) from the rear xi the buildi ng, breaking a pace of glass in the windpw, and then reaching throng Ii the japerture: -and unlatching it This done! they jmade a clean sweep of the IcohtenUj.of the show cases, leaving behiad them only such articles aa were too cumbersome tb he easily carried off, with the )le exception of a Small silver watch of trifling value which escaped their notioa. The articles stolen were for the mosd part gold and silvfer watched, and the loss is in the nffighborhqd of $400. Mr. Ormfeby, the; proprietor, is particularly unfortunate in that he had only recently established himself in -t West Oakland. There is as yet no clue to the perpetrators ofthe robbery.

A TERRIBLE FALL. Werkmaia Falls from tho Roof of tH Narrow-Gaag Depot to tlie sSroamd. This afternoon at shortly before three o'clock Irwin! Perigan, si young, man of about twenty-three years, of age fell from th roof of the! I Narrow Gauge Depot to the; ground below, a distance of lorty-five feet. It? appears that the unfrtucate man was engaged in carrying plate of iron which ate used in roofing the building. One iof these overbalanced him and he slipped over the edg-of the roof aad shot down through the air earrying the plate of iron with him.

He strutk the ground with terrific force.and at firslj it was supposed I that he; bad been killed outright He recovered conscious-ne4 after some however, and complained of intense pains in the. bowels.

When the divorce case of Sharon vs. Sharon was called to-day in Judgs Sulli van court in San Francisco, Gensrtl Barnes arose and said: "So far as the defendant is! concerned the case is ready for trial, and we wonld like to have it set fcr next Monday, or a week from that udge jTyler immediately jumped to his feet and replied: "We are not ready to try this ease, for several reasons. which, I.lbiuk, will commend themselves to your judgment. In the first place, we have received no notice, of the intended motion the defendant to place the case on the calendar, and such notice is required by the rules and regulations of the Superior Court. In the second place, there is a suit pending in the United States Circuit' Court to compel this plaintiff to surrender her mar rinse contract, and furthermore, there are several indict ments in the criminal department of this Cosrt against this same plaintiff.

While these proceedings are pending. will not consent to go on, because it ia giving too much handicap. Brother! Barnes has been making things lively for us, at, aa he tells us a great loss of flesh We desire time to prepare for him, anil I want time to get testimony out of the State. I have not yet prepared my interrogations. It is a matter of record jtttat tbe criminal indictments were procured at the instigation of Mr; SharonJ and as he gives ua so much trouble, be should allow us time to meet him." 1 Barnes replied to Tyler with some asperity, saying: So far aa tbe removal of this case to the Circuit- Court is concerned, we have stipulated tbat it should i be remanded to the Superior Court, to be tried before your Honor without a jury.

So far as tbe indictment are concerned, if the offenses charged are true, the violators of the law should be punished. It is a novel idea tbat criminal and civil proceeding may not proceed part passu. I his is the time TO SET THE CASK FOR FRIAL. It is matter of public notoriety that Mr. Sharon ia troubled by these cases, and fdesires the aid of judicial determination to see whether Miss -1 1 run is in wue, ana wnemer sne is entitled to a share of that wealth.

which they have, with their joint economy and industry succeeded in accumulating. It is a subject of public discussion. It is demoralizing and injurious to the public morals. and we desire it to be settled. Tbe pendency of criminal proceedings cut no figure in the case.

The only issue that comes within! the cognizance of this Court is the true marriage contract of Hill's whether it is and the foundation of alleged rights, or whether it is fraudulent in character. My client, Mr. Sharon, is old and in feeble health, and his hold on life is at best tenuous, and we desire tbe case tried before he dies. I urge it upon the conscience of the Court, as a conservator (of public and private morals, to set this case for TTLEK WADES Judge Tyler, during tbe delivery of Barnes' sarcasm, was somewhat taken back, but he was not unsettled. He sailed in for the General in the following style: "Itrjis true that a preat deal has been said (of a demoralizing character in the case, and it was dragged into the papers, but it was against my It was Barnes who allowed ths reporters present, he should not complain, if like the old Englishmen 'he had bit off a little more than he couli chew He should) blame his -shorthand reporter.

I cannot be ready fur this case till tbe middle of March." I Barnes -If Tyler will agree to set thi case for an early day, we will stipulate to hang up the criminal cases till he is -ready. Tyler There is no hanging id case. If therejwere, I know somebody who would either be hanged or be in the State Prison. sP. Evans If the counsel consents to set the case at tbe earliest day consistent with the convenience of the Court, we will waive all right of notice in the taking of depositions.

1 Even this concession did not appease Tyler, who still adhered to his desire not to set the case. "I want time," he said; my client has not the plethoric purse so successfully wielded by the defendant. Barnes Why don't yon make a motion for alimony and counsel fees? Tyler I intend to move for alimony acd counsel fees, and in a shorter time than Mr. Barnes imagines, and don't you forget it. Here a laugh was indulged in, even by the court, and-Judge Tyler chuckled over! the '-success his repartee, and he was so far conciliated as to magnanimously offer the proposi-tionj.

that if Barnes would stipulate to dismiss tbe criminal he, Tyler, wonld agree to set the divorce case for Monday. The Judge than set the ease for February I8tbr with the understanding; that both parties should be positively prepared at that time, MINIM STOCK REPORT. Sab Faascisoo, January 1884.

city; marshal's reckipts. Mr. Carothere, of the Committee on Ordinance and Judiciary, stated that the Committee had. an ordinance in regard to tbe disposition! of funds in the hands of ths City Marshal, but ha did not think tbat it was imperatively necessary that! immediate action should be taken, and would ask fnrther tins. Further time was granted, CTCtlSO and Mr.

Garber called attention to the fact that the Ordinance and Judiciary Committee have an ordinance under consideration prohibiting the use of roller skates and bicycles, and desired to know what action had been taken in. regard to the matter. Mr. Carothers replied that the Com mittee had such an ordinance under con but no action had yet been taken. i Mr.

Garber said that the use of skates and bicycles was a great esnecialiv to those who have been to the expense of laying' stone pavements. One man had intimated that if the nuisance was not abated he would tear up hi walk. Mr. Garber thought that the ordinance might be amended if it was thought too severe. Judge Yule thought that the ordinance might be ameaced so that bicycles could prohibited, as the latter were probably the most annoyance.

Mr. McGivsey was in favor of giving the boys a chance. They had all been I boys once: upon a time. Mr. Cat-others thought that the ordinance could be modified so as to permit the use of bicycles in certain portions of the city and to prohibit tbe use of tricycles.

The whole matter was referred to th Committee on Ordinance and Judiciary to consult with the City Attorney. Mr. Dean thought it would be a good idea to com pell the bicycle riders to carry horns and blow them when approaching a team. Mr. McGivney was in favor of setting apirt some portion of the city for the use of the boys aDd girls and the-'general amusement1 of the public.

He called attention to the fact that the pavement around the: Hall of Records would soon be in excellent' condition for skatiog and bicycling, THE rOSTOKFICB FOUNTAIN. Mr. Babbitt, in regard to the postoffice fountain! said that the committee was at work in the matter. He calculated that the fountain would be ready for placing in position to-morrow, but the expense would be little more than' was at first estimated; but not much more, and he thought there would be no objection to tbat. I DEFECTIVE SEWERAGE.

7 City Attorney Yule called up the matter of the passage, of an ordinance prohibiting the carrying of sewage out upon the public streets in view of the objection to Mr. Matthews' sewerage on Franklin street. He had been requested to draft such an ordinance and he should do so, presenting the same at the next meeting of the Council; when it might be passed under suspension of the rules. He regarded the passage of- such an ordinance as highly beneficial to the general public Mr. Babbitt designated th Matthews sewer, a nuisance, which should be abated, but thus far it had beemimpossible reach the evil.

There had been a great deal of complaint in regard to this sewerage, and Mr. Cole, one of the property owners of the vicinity, had stated tbat be desired to grade the street at his own expense and by this means obviate, as far as possible, the evils arising MAIN LAKE SKWKB BONOSL City Attorney Yule asked- whether the Council would be prepared to receive bids for the redemption of Main "Lake Sewer bonds on Mouday night. Mr. Dean said that they wonld not be. Judge Yule said tbat it would not be tn draft an ordinance until aftejrj that meeting, and that a special meeting for the adoption of the ordinance could be held-dn the succeeding evening.

i bixbt's thoroughfare. Levi Bixby appeared before the'cjom- mitteea: explained that Twentieth street had never been opened, or declared a public 'street, owing to the fact that a bogus map had been made by W. Everson, and placed it on file. This was not known for several year, but the history of the street and snrroandirig property, as detailed by Mr. Bixby, tended to show that street is not a public street, the City Coun cil en two: occasions having declared that twentieth Btreetts not a public street.

Mr. Bixby also showed a deed to the property and stated that the fence which' he bad built across- the street six years age was standing at that moment. Mr. Carothers informed Mr. Bixby that no action had been taken in regard to opening; the street.

When such action should be taken it would be time to argue the matter before the proper committees. Mr. Bixby said that, in reply to Marshal Ciougkv ne would deny that be ever threatened any city official with a shotgun. He might have said that he had a good rifle, and he had one of Uncle Sam's 'guns, which he cams honorably by as honorably as bis grand-father had came by the sword which he carried through the battle of Bunker Hill. He would say, however, that he had no objection to; the opening of the street provided tbe other property owners would stand an equal amount of the expense attending th opening of the street.

The natter was finally left over until some formal demand for the opening of th street shall be made. QUIT CLAIM TO A SUCTION. Mr. MoGivney presented a. paper which was read and which stated that James Stoddard had given ex-Chief James RI'I authority to manufacture and use the four couplings in question, and tbat he relin quished any and all claims against ths city for compensation lor the adoption and as of tbe hose couplings.

This waiverfrom Mr. Stoddard will probably have the effect of causing the Council to compromise with Dan Hayes as City Attorney- Yule recommends and pay him $20; the sum demanded far the city having used the four hose couplings containing1 an infringement on his patent. The Commit ittees tbn adjourned. Aasaalt wlta a DeaeTly Weapoa. Charges' of aatanlt with a deadly weapon have been placed against Alex.
