No two alike. ; and Bartealev. by the Legislature has been restored to Its original amount of 975,000. and this sum I annually expended to the benefit of the stipendiaries of the association. As a matter of fact, the fair should not only be self-supporting but should be a source of large profit Its revenue should be devoted to the cultivation and beautifying of the grounds and to a fund; from which profitable and attractive inducements could be offered to exhibitors. Oakland is apparently In earnest in its effort to secure the fair site and the city's energies and enterprise can, at this time, be devoted to no better purpose. Oakland is also desirous of obtaining a great park, an object which might easily grow out of its annual fair. The two pleasure resorts can be combined to the advantage of both. As a fair city Oakland has, relatively, no superior in this country. "Its geographical situation is almost perfect; it can be approached by both land or water; it Is surrounded by populous districts an stands at the door of the metropolis of the coast. It is a eity of colleges, churches and beautiful homes and the repository of wealth and culture. Its climaje is superb. As a business proposition the fair will be a success if held in Oakland and if managed with intelligence and liberality may rival some of the great State fairs in the East notably the St. Louis Fair. The erounds of th latter in. I elude a handsome landscape, arborial and floral displays and a aoo. The grounds are kept open all the year and are one of the chief attractions of that very conservative and very prosperous city, ban "ranclsco would arive the .t!Ltre.mend0U8 financ1a. suiuciuiug it ii us never contributed to the Sacramento enterprise. The scope of the fair would be largely Increased and after its inauguration it would need little or no support from the State. Oakland should bend every energy and make every reasonable sacrifice to secure the State Fair. It will reap Immense advantage in return. Contra Costa county should extend a strong ana neiping nana to Oakland In me turtnerance of Its laudahl nnd wise desire, for it. too will be widelv benefited by its fruition."

BelL a highly esteemed minister residing in Weedaport Cayuga county. New York, in a recent letter writes as follows; "There has never been anything that I (have taken that has relieved the Dyspepsia from which I have suffered for ten years except the new remedy called Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. Since taking them I ' have had no distress Lt all after eating and again after long years can Sleep well. , Rev. F. L Bell, Weedsport, j New, York, formerly. Idalia, Colorado.

The best that, the Tribune can say is that the directors of the Oakland race track will let the. State use the grounds tn September. As for the pavilion we are told that "there" will be sites and to spare provided , tor it" And that is the insubstantial promise of Oakland. "The Legislature, will, we doubt not, be asked to give Oakland the Fair, but it is hardly conceivable that the request will ever get "beyond the formal stage. The site of the exposition building and half of the cost of It was presented to. the State by the people of Sacramento. The same is true of f.he present race track in the heart of the city. The track grounds are to be sold, but the State will never, we think, so far forget the equities between it and the people of Sacramento as to use the proceeds of the sale of the people's gift to build up the Fair elfewhere. But aside from,i this view of the case we do not concede any advantage of Oakland over Sacramento as a location for the State Exposition. The Capitol is the right place for it and is easily to aU the people. Oakland is too slow a towrptfor a State Fair." i "MERCHANT." E. e.

Editor Tribune: I notice by the news papers that the City Council is making ! preparations to sell the City Hall property. As a taxpayer, I am interested In the welfare of this city.

Tell Their Fellow Clubmen What They Will Do in Office. The Nile Club entertained tha successful candidates in the recent election, who are members of the club, at a banquet Saturday evening. William Nat Friend acted as master of ceremonies and to his efforts was the success of the affair in a great measure attributed. The only member of the club who was a candidate and was not elected is Charles H. Spear. He was cited to appear before the club and tell how it happened, but he failed to put in an appearance. Assessor Dalton and Senator-elect Frank W. Leavitt were also conspicuous by their absence, as was Assemblyman-elect Howard E. Wright. Dictator Friend cemmanded all successful candidates to explain how they proposed to distribute the spoils of office. The replies of those present were very laughable. Owing to the absence of the successful legislative candidates Clarence Crowell read a draft of the laws they would submit to the next session of the Legislature. It is doubtful if they will ever ba heard of in Sacramento in the form in which they were presented to the club. Dr. H. B. Mehrmann, Coroner-elect. J. Cal Ewin. Auditor-elect. Jude Ai. len, district Attorney-elect, County i Clerk- Jordan. Justices-elect Stetson and Quinn and Harry Melvln, who is to be chief deputy in the District Attorney's office all entertained the members by telling what they intended doing after they had assumed the duties of thair respective offices. j Ben Woolner, Arthur H.

The Woued Are Doing Well and May Recover From Their Injuries. At 4:20 o'clock Sunday mornjng the boilers of the Stockton steamer T. C. Walker, blew up, dealing death to several men, injury tu others aiiu destruction to a great part of the vessel. There was no warning. The boat was plying slowly from the wharf at Turner's Landing at Black slough, when suddenly the steam drum burst with tremendous violence, scattering death on every hand. The forward end of the ship is a mass of debris. No man can definitely assert the accident's cause. but it is conjectured that the T. C. Walker's boilers were carrying too great steam pressure. The dead are: JOHN TULAN, captain of the T. C. Walker. WATSON HENRY, engineer of the T. C. Walker. MRS. WATSON HENRY. W. A. BLUNT, foreman of Boggs' Beet Sugar Company. JERRY DAILEY, fireman.
