Esq., President of the San Francisco Citizens' Alliance. "Dear Sir: I listened to your discussion of unionism and the 'open shop' at Petaluma recently, and, while convinced that you are 'master of your argument,' I believe that you left many important facts unsaid.

What Christmas boxes are to us or les etrennes to the French on New Tear's Day, Easter gifts are to the Russians. Egg-shaped presents of every imaginable size and value are the order of the day. Sometimes these Easter gifts assume very substantial proportions. We once saw. at St. Peteresburg an Easter egg of gigantic "dimensions, containing nothing smaller than a brougham destined for a Charming and no doubt delighted recipient. London Saturday Review.

KEEN COMPETITION AMONG CONTRACTORS Board of Education Has Interested Audience While Opening Bids For Washington SchooL Tiere jaa an interesting gathering of contractors at the meeting of the Board of Education last night to hear y opened for the building of the Wash ington School. Some of the bids went to only certain parts of the construction while others bid on the erection of the entire structure. The bids ranged In amounts "from $68,748 for doing all of the work to the sum of $640 for doing the marble work. Many of the bids were close and considerable rivalry was .evinced among the spectators as first one and then another was seen to have cut below the previous bids read out. There were so many bids and so comflex. many of them, that it was deemed advisable to refer to a special committee to report at the next meeting and it was eo ordered. The bids as received were as follows: THE BIDS. Brick and stone work V. L. Fortin &JSon, $22,743; P. J. Walker, $20,793: Thos. Butler, $20,925; M. Carroll, $22,-959. Stone structural and steel work Dyer Bros., $6,390; Judson Mfg. Co, $5,-550; Otto Schrader, $7,298; Union Steel and Macadamizing Co., $7,222; Long & Hogh. $6290. Fireproofinjr and metal lathing Roebling Construction Company,' $8,-645: Western Metal Company, $8,900; D. E. Brown, $9,937; Long & Hogh. $8;790. Galvanized iron and' roofing Pacific Roofing Company, $794; Robert Dalziel Jr.. $937. Plastering Wm. Maheedy & Co.. $3,681; Geo. Dixon, $4,987; Jas. H. Fed graft, $3,917. Marble work F. V. Gallise Company. $810; H. E. Brown & Co., $700; Mission Marble Works, $646.40; Columbus Marble Works, $369.94; Vermont Marble Company, $640. Plumbing Ramsden, Griffith & Co-$16,640; H. E. Brown Co., $15,821; W. W. Anderson. $19,473. Painting and tinting James Cahill & Co., $1985; W. H. Blake; $1913. Entire work Chas. Roeth, $67,985. except brick work: Cook & Young. $66,980; Wilson, Lyon & Co., $68,748. THE LOWEST ONES. By these bids it will be seen that the bid of Cook & Youg to do the entire work for $66,980 is the lowest lump sum for which the building can be erected, while the aggregates of the lowest bids on the different parts of the work amounts to but $54,803. By comparison it was foundthat the lowest bids for the different parts of the building had been submitted by the following: Painting W. ' H. Blake, $1,913; plumbing, H. E. Brown, $15,821; marble, work The Vermont Marble Co-$640; plastering, wm. Maheedy s Co., $3,681; galvanized iron and roofing. Pacific Roofing Co., $794; fire proofing and metal lathing, Roebling Construction Co., $8,645; stone structural and steel work, Judson Manufacturing Co.. $5,550; brick and stone work, P. J. Walker. $20,799. Expressions among the members of the Board were to the effect that they believed that the building ought to be erected for a less sum than the $66,980 bid and it is probable that the work will be let to the various bidders who have offered to do the several parts of the work. FOR MOVING SCHOOLS. There were also bids to be opened for the moving of the Lincoln, Pres-cott and Grove street schools and for the painting of the Temescal, Durant and Cole schools and the following bids were submitted: Moving Lincoln School W, P. Grant. $3,300; J. Bayles & Son, $3,000; Walter Seawell. $6,440. Prescott School W. P. Grant, $2,700; J. Bayles & Son, $2,000; Walter Seawell, $1,802. Grove Street School W. P. Grant, $595; J. Bayles & Son, $400; Walter Seawell, $550. PAINTING AND TINTING. Temescal School Llewellyn Co., $1,653; J. P. Nichols. $750. Durant School The Llewellyn Co., $3,337; J. P. Nicholas, $1,650. Cole Building The . Llewellyn Co., $2,869.99. The work of moving the Lincoln School j was awarded to J. Bayles & Son for $3,000. that of the Prescott School to I Walter Seawell for $1,802 and the Grove' Street School to Walter Seawell for $i50. j PAINTERS DISSATISFIED. j The bids for the painting were not let and the matter is ,to be further consid- ered. A statement from Jhe Master Painters' ; Association was made by Jamee Cahill, j who drew the attention of the board to i the fact that no member of the' Master Painters' Association had submitted a bid for the repainting of the schools. I for the reason that the board only called for bids for the work, reserving the right to furnish tbe paint itself, and in this connection he said: "A part of the profit of the painter is in furnishing the material. In the uncertain labor market there is little . profit to be made in simply doing the work, and for this reason the Master Painters' Association passed resolutions about five months ago to submit no more bids on such a basis." BOARD IN IGNORANCE. It was pointed out that this was the first time the matter had been called to the attention of the board, and he said that it was an oversight on their part, but that the board could remember it in the future. President Clift explained that the board had adopted the plan ( getting its own paint some- years ago on account of the poor quality furnished. In response Cahill said: "The painter is not out to lose money. If you make him come down in the price his material and work will be poor. It ' is much better to submit the bids to several responsible firms than to do it as you are. The county does it in this way, and it only gets the best work, and you will find no poor paint on" any of its buildings." The matter of the pointing b&s was left open for further consideration. WOULD BE INSPECTOR. An application for the position of Inspector of painting of the various school buildings was received from F. M. Far-well. Tbe application was referred to the Committee on School houses and Sites. 4 WANT JANITORSHIPS. Applications for positions as Janitors were received from E. G. Pound. Claud Hamilton. J. B. Newell and Hnry Griffiths. They were referred , to the Committee on Schoolhouses and Sites. RESIGNS. The resignation of Frida Berg as a teacher In the Oakland , School Depart ment was received and the same was accepted. WOMEN EXPRESS THANKS. The thanks of the Woman's Civic Im provement Company for the use of the ecture room of the Chabot Observatory for holding their meetings during the past year was communicated to the board in writing and was ordered placed on file. . ' CONTRACT AMENDED. Upon the recommendation of District Attorney Allen an amendment ,to the contract of M. Carroll for building the foundation of , Lafayette School was made. The necessity for this change was owing to the fact that the artificial stone proposed for the work was found not to be satisfactory. Carroll was allowed to so amend his bid as to do the work with other material satisfactory to the board. The secretary was also notified to adi vertise for bids for the erection of the new Prescott School and the addition to the Grant School. FURNITURE BOUGHT. Director Ingler reported for the Observatory Committee that he had purchased certain furniture for the room of the astronomers at Chabot Observatory for the sum of $24.90, and the bill was approved and ordered paid. COR. THIRTEENTH Forced to Starve. B. F. Leek ot Concord, Ky., says: "For twenty years I suffered agonies with a sore on my upper lip, so painful some times, that I could not eat. After vainly ( trying everything else, I cured it with Bucklen's Arnica Salve." It's great for burns, cuts and wounds. At Osgoods' drug stores. Seventh and Broadway and Twelfth and Washfngton.

The Kentucky schemers who have been working the case for political effect, with shyster- aid, have carefully avoided his identification. To convict the assassin and hang him would spoil their political game, and their wolfish pursuit of Powers. Taylor and other Republicans who had committed the crime of getting the most votes in a State election. Powers has now asked to be tried in a United States court, on the ground that he has been tried three times by juries packed by his political enemies, that justice due a citizen of the United States has been denied him and . that he holds a pardon from Governor Taylor that has been ignored. A fair trial would no doubt reveal who killed Goebel. That fact will nAvAt Ko allrtwori tn mme nut bv tbe politicians who have been trying to hang j .Powers.
