No wamautfAuam. of any sort should be allowed to wedge in between justice and the slayer of Policeman Cash in. If he is guilty of the crime with which he is charged he should be promptly tried, convicted and sentenced. The people of Oakland will stand no shilly-shallying in this matter. The crime was a heinous one. The punishment should be swift aad commensurate. What a monkey -and parrot time there Watt be before the Democracy gets through distributing the party leaves and fishes. Quits a number of leading Democrats on this coast ai quite uneasy already.

EIGHTH STREET, MflMMBetotiltoTunn, MMH Tor Ut tmprte ! of dem, A. gATZ. TaM Aisult of til It was a complete stampede. It ftl: od Sunday that something of the kind was threatened. The Republicans were wavering, uncertain. It was in the air. The I bibl sz did what in it lay to stay the nub, end we etood loyally by onr colors. It wee useless, hut we are not cast down because of the result, however we may regret that so adm ira-1 ble a candidate at Kr. Barker did not receive a more creditable support. The Tjubusk has notning to regret concerning its coarse in the campaign, and has nothing to take-back. The result of the vote doe not change our opinion as to the relative merits of the candidates. The Non-Partisans have the floor. They have the whole city government, body, boots and breeches, the Mayor, the City Council, the Board of Education and the Library Trustees. They will have foil scope to carry oat those declarations to which they are committed by their platform , such as the opening of the streets to the eetoary, the establishment of municipal water works, which may have been honestly meant or may have been in the language of the late Tom Shan nor, "molasses to catch files." tm the) I That which was started for joke on Sacramento turns oat to he a very serious matter for that city. The fact is Sacramento baa no friends outside cf its own limits, it has a vile climate in summer and .a worse one in winter. The city is abominably kept, dirty and evil-smelling. Mod in its etreete and overflows in the lower part of town, with malarious sloughs scattered about do not make en agreeable resort. More over the city has contracted a bad habit of living off State alma, which has caused the people generally to regard the city with feeling of contempt. All these things are bound to have their effect when the question comes to a rote at the next election, and It ia more then likely that the amendment will be adopted. In the meantime the Bee's loathsome contemporaries are jumping upon that insect for destroying the town, and the Bee itselt is bard at work apologising end trying to pat itself straight with the angry people of Sacramento. The following extract will indicate the line of apology : The Bee seldom fails to interest its read, ere na are ths people generally and occasionally create some special comment in the Mate because it is one of tne few ' oewspapera tbat dares to publish the news and express its opinions concerning current eveuts. Its issue of last Saturday, bow-ever, has created a commotion which was neither intended dot foreseen when it 'met issued. There wift bs found therein on the first page certain unique headl ines, wbich read both down and across the paper, the latter reading giving the legend "Ibank God, the sees ion now 1s almost over." This incocent phrase not only expressed the sentiments of every tired newspaper worker in the State, but voiced at well, the oft repeated expressions of the legislators themselves. There was also a special article illustrating the hilarious and frisky manner in which some of the members spend moat ot their time in Sacramento, which waa in no way intended to reflect on the many dignified and respectable mem oers who bave attended to their da ties. We have no idea whether the articles printed in the Bee were true or not, but it is a good newspaper rule that no local story should bs printed unless names can be given.' No names were given in the articles in the Bee, and- the result was tbat whether they were true or mere fakes they became matters of offense to a large body of the legislators, as they might have referred to almost any one of them. If the articles were true and were printed with names, then the bsame would have rested where it belongs, bat if they were fakes the Bee is justly vanished. It will not disquiet the raisin-growers of California to learn that the Zante people are contemplating uprooting the vines and entering upon another industry than the raising of currants in short, that they mean to return to the culture of the olive, for which there is a demand, while there is none for the currant. The Zante currant ia really a raisin. It received an immense impetus after the phylloxera first appeared In France, when the French offered fabulous prices for the fruit. It failed to make wine. Then the California seedless raisin, much cleaner and infinitely better in substance, came in and replaced the product cf Zante. The result ia depression and hard times in Zante. The earth quake has added hew hardships and the Greeks have determined to return to the pursuit' of their fathers. While California is sorry for the Greeks, its raisin-growers can stoically look upon the abandonment of the Zante currant in dustry. Down in Kansas, Democrats who become Populists are called "Demopops" end ropocrats." lie publicans who go to the Populists, go by the name of "Popticana." There has always been something unique aboui those Kansana and when they reach out after anything, a word or anything else, they just go in and make it. J - What did Colonel Morehouse ever do to Colonel Osborne of the Los Angeles Express, to get the following rite-roaster : "R. V. Morehouse, member of the State Board of Equalization, is one of the best story tellers in. the State. All of his stories are good, but none of them are new." Ir a few more Legislatures could meet, prize fighters would soon have to go to work to earn an honest living or be sent up a vagrants. Either would nuke respectable people feel comparatively satisfied. It doesn't take a trombone or a be drum to establish the glory of God. It is exhibited to him who will see in the details of every dey life. The election being over, begin the cultivation of orchids. That at least is a profitable business. As analysis of the rote cast in Oakland will be interesting and ad- on. Thk devil is often served by the character of men who speak in hefy piaema WALKS AND TALKS. The Australian BeHet lew has been a death blow to the old time political rounder, who talked a great deal and did nothing. His day has gone. Hie Bind came over from San Francisco aad swarmed from their own peculiar s aunts over here yester day, bat they were perfectly useless. They stood about, with hands ia their pockets, aad looked oa with amazement. They early began to realise that their occupation waa real.y gone, aad they looked as sad as they undoubtedly leit e The fasaon " Banjo-eyed KM" has been spending a few daws In Oakland. Neither Tas Tbibvne nor the police have, np to date, been able to determine just what the Kid's real object was la coming over here. Of course, if there had been a dollar, honestly or dishooestlr, in ths last campaign, that would be an ample excuse, but every one knows that there was no money that would tempt the Banjo-eyed. He must have been oa another mission, aad Chief Scbaffer might as well bavs bis officers keep a sharp lookout oa this very bright young man. They tell a pretty good story about the Kid up at Sacramento, where he has been wintering. It is ell about how he joggled $10 out of Aaron Nathan, the Keeper of the cigar stand ia. the Assembly corridor. Nathan waa backing Hall against Fitzsimmons in the recent fight. The Kid was aware of this. The result of the fight was made known through the telegraph office at the Capitol quite early, and the Kid was one of the first to hear it. Then he wagered Nathan $10, and won, of course. Those who aaw Aaron do his war dance after be discovered how be bad been tricked will never forget the sight The Kid alone waa unperturbed. e e The friends of Assemblyman Cusiek of Ban Francisco should Immediately ask for the appointment of a guardian for that gentleman. Some days ago he stated openly in a San Francisco newspaper tbat be had been offered $500 to voie for the Carpenter Reassessment bill. Further, that be bad been pursued by three or four men who wanted to pay him a like sum on behalf of the railroad company. Indeed, the way in which men insisted on insulting Mr. Cusick waa something marvelous, judging from the interview. But, alas! Cuaick lied, and the world has bis own word for it. He is repentant now aad has been trying to set himself right. He says: "I was under the influence of liquor when I talked to the San Francis co reporters and 1 don't remember what I aaid to them. 1 might bave aaid what has appeared in print. No, J was not approached by any iebbyist and offered' $500 or any other sum to vote for the Carpenter substitute tor the Reassessment bill. I have no knowledge, either, tbat there is money being offered to- t is only street rumor. Now, what is one to think of an Assemblyman like that? And what ia one to think of constituency that wonld elect a man like that? The old is rapidly passing away, new does not always seem to satis y, one has reached the meridian of life, old friends, old acquaintances tbat The when It is seem most natural, and I bave known men to cling to old bats and old shoes almost as to lifs. Fixed habits come with ;ge. To thousands of people the death of Luke Schoolcraft, the comedian and minstrel, will come as a personal loss, though they may not bave known him personally. He was. a minstrel of the old school may their tribe increase and a polished and clever man. He was an "Old Times Bosks," and what a flood of reminiscences his name conjures up to those familiar with the good old days of minstrelsy, the days ot Billy Birch, Backus, Wambold, Benedict. Duprez, Billy Rice, Simmons, Slocutn, Sweatnam, Dlxey, Thatcher, Corn-cross, Frank Moran and a dozen others to whom modern minstrelsy of the Cleveland order bears ths same relation that Billy Keraands' mouth does to comedy and genuine humor.

General Wesley Mtrrit in TotUk't Companion. Cadets preserve order and quiet in the barracks, as they do in the ranks, under an organization which makes certain cadet officers responsible. As will be at once seen, an organisation such as this must depend for its perfection on the character of the students, and, above all, on their honesty and veracity. These are, end must be, unimpeachable. The word of a cadet is never ques tioned Dy tne authorities, and, as a con- eequence, a cadet of any experience at tbe academy has never been known to tell a falsehood or try to deceive. For every detected violation of the regulations the cadet is reported. If he has sn explanation to offer in palliation of the offense, or if , as is sometimes the case, he is reported in error, it is only ne oessary for bim to make the explanation and unquestioning credence is given to bis statement. No action is ever taken by the author-Hies which reflects in any way upon the honor of a cadet unless it is well assured that his honor is involved, when by the action of a court martial or the more summary procedure by tbe Secretary of War, the guilty one's connection with the acadetry ia severed. a BM Gift.

Perhaps you may remember that when saow foil in Oakland one New Year's day the papers of the son thern citrus belt poked fan at as, aad, indeed, labored to persuade the Eastern tenderfoot tbat two feet of snow was the usual thing for an Oakland winter. They bad some saow down there themselves last week, pretty low down on the foothills, and a Baa Bernardino correspondent of the Los Angelea Timet crows eloquent over it 1 ike this: "J oat before sunset the clouds, which had been hanging low, enveloping the mountains and foothills in dull light end gloomy mists, lifted above the mountain tons, revealing lbs beautiful now-clad sides and summits. Above the drifts of clouds, piled high ia soft banks, waa the cold biueoay, with here and there a white cloud-bank or gray patches of rn 1st, Below the big cloud-bank, between it aad the mountains, the sky had a warm, rosy hue, in beau:iful barwony with the cold blue above; tba soft clouds and the dazz ing whiteness of the anow-mamled summits, while upon the mountains were frost patches, from which the green of the pines peered just enough to give another soft shade. Darkness had set tied upon the plains below and given to the brown of tne oare neids and the groves of growing orchards a deep, dusky base, upon which the lighter coloring of the beauty above seemed to calmly rest. It was a spectacle to be stored in the memory, among the treasured pictures of the world's beauty. '.'Friday the son rose in a clear sky and reflected its rays in glittering brightness from the snowy coverlid extending to the very foot of tne mountains, while from crests, through canyons, were seen ever-shifting shadows. The Arrowhead stood out in in pure white against tbe gray of the foothills. But by night the snow line had receded more than half way up the mountain sides." i A good one on our most lsarned pundit is told in tbe Wasp. Professor Howison, at the State University, gives out some curious questions to his classes. One day he gave tbe m this to think over during the night: "It s hole was bored through the center of the earth from side to side and a ball dropped into it, what motions 'would tbe ball pass through, and when would it eome to a state of rest?" Tbe next morning a student was called up to solve the problem. "What answer bave you?" Howison asked. "Well, really," replied the atudent, "I have not thought of the main question, but of tbe preliminary oue: 'How are you to get the hole bored through?' " . Edward M. Brown, who is publishing in the Calaveras Prospect some interesting extracts from bis diary, written in the early mining days, has this: "Tbe winter of 1852-3 was sn extremely rainy one; the ground became thoroughly aoaked; uo mails or supplies could be obtained from S.'ockton, and Hour rose in price. A German baker in Columbia bad laid in a large stock for the winter. and when tbe stores had sold their flour, be put up the price of bread to 5) cants per loaf. Finally be stopped making bread and sold his whole stock for $1 per pound. When communication was again established, he went to San Francisco en route to Germany, a .rich man. I had plenty of food, except fl-jur, for tbe winter, and paid the thrifty baker $50 for a sack. "Early in the spring I engaged again in mining near Columbia, realizing several thousand dollars from tbe claim in a few mouths. Many small rubies were found in the pan, and 1 have thought the ground carried diamonds.'' a - We had some snow ourselves in this neighborhood last week and tbat is what made it so cold in town. The Livermore mountains, Mt. Diablo and Mr. Hamilton' were all white, but we were too busy with politics to pay much attention. Nevertheless, a poetical Santa Clara valley editor he of the Giiroy Gazette found time to mingle politics and weather in this wise: "Lois of snow Sunday morning on Mount Hamilton and Santa Cruz range, which in tbe bright Sunlight made a beautiful contrast with the lovely verdure below. And the scent of violets and lilies greeted our olfactories as we sat in the open air reading Cleveland's inaugural, occasionally glancing upon the magnificent sight before our ' optica.

"My wife and 5-year old daughter accompanied me on my last trip. We Sunday ed at Sedalia 'and daring tbe afternoon drove oat to the emetery. One of the first things to attract our attention after entering the earn tery was an open grave, dog for a child. We walked up to it and stood for some minutes looking at it. Tbe memories it evoked were painful indeed and my wife broke down and cried bitterly. Little Ma took me bv the hand and led 'me out of ear-shot of her mother, then she said, while her chin quivered and her eyes filled with tears: "Papa, why don't you me put in, cover me np and take mamma boie?' I was astonished. I bent down to kiss her and she whispered: 'Tell mamma good-by for me; I can't do it.' The child actually thought tbat we had come to the cemetery to bury her and that she was standing beside her open grave. It waa the meet magnificent exhibition of nerve I ever witnessed." How She Became a Missionary . "I'm doing missionary work a good deal of the time," was the reply of one of the most charming women of New York, to a friend, who asked bow she busied herself. "I see by your looks you wonder what I mean by that. I'll tell you. A few years aeo life was a burden to me. I had been a victim to female weakness ot tbe most aggravated character for a long time, and tbe doctors failed to help me. Existence was a long, steady, teirible torture a lingering, living death. One day I saw Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription advertised in the newspaper. Something m tbe advertisement impressed me favorably. I caught at the gdmmer of hope it heid out as tbe drowning man is said to catch at n. straw. Still, 1 did not dara to hope. But I got tbe medicine, and behold the result ! 1 feel so well, so strong, and O. so thankful, tbat I got about teilinz other women what saved me. In no other way can I ao well show my gratitude to God and to the man who has proved such a benefactor of women, and my love for my suffering sisterhood." A Solid Oak Brdroom 8t for 25.
