Owing' the fact" that if the Market street school, now beinK erected by the BfiarB . of .Educating should be.'carrie.l 0'ii to corcipietion feting its present lines th.. total co-the buildjns would exceed by some $8?000 the amount of money sH apart for It, it bassbeeivfourid necessaiy by the Board of Education t reject7 all present bids foe the work and can for new bids under a revised set of plans which will leave out a- large par(. of the ornamentation of the building. CHANGE NECESSARY.! , In explaining the necessity for this notion lat flight Director John D. Isaacs said: "This building under the rlanS of the architect wsys to cost $72.-000 and in accepting the plans the board reserved the rlgflt to rnak what changes it might see hfc- Owing to a change in the price of materidt- we thought we saw an. opportunity to aid considerable to the. building in the way of .ornamentation and we enriche.l tire original plans by adding marble" and granite work and in' ,the fire proofing. But we now see that our money is n"t going 'to last out and that if we complete the building as now designed it w'M cost close on to $80,000. MUST RETRENCH. "Therefore t'.'.e committee on school houses and -sit s would recommend that we reject whit bids we have accepted and "call for jiew bids that Will cheapen the structure to within our means." As a further explanation to the new members on me board it was pointed out that an '.'X.ict- estimate could not be obtained of the cost of the building and the miscalculation' had been the result. The rt commendation of the committee was unanimously adopted and new bids wilt be advertised for so that while, the building to be erected upon its original lines it will Be cheaprried sufficiently to come within the price intended. . WANTS TOKNOW WHY." Before voting upon the measure Director Ingler asked for information-. He wanted to know, if. when the architect's plans had been adopted they had not been guaranteed not to exceed more than the estimated cost. Director Itogeijs explained to him that the building couijd be erected as originally intended at ijthe estimated cast, but that the Excess was Okie to changes made by the board, it seeming- possible at the time the changes'vwere made to get considerable moic for their monev. With this explanation the motion carried. - TERMS TO BE EQUAL. A resolution was read by Superintendent McClymonds which provided for the arrangement of; the school holidays so that it would divide the year into two j equal terms of twenty-one weeks each instead of - as they now are. one term having-; nineteen weeks and the other twenty-three weeks. . Director Crandail arose as Vhe motion was about to be put and stated that he did not know just how. such an arrangement would majke the holiday come with the holidays, in San Francisr-o but he had 'been askeriAbv the- wholesale book sellers and school Airiply" firms to tfy and arrange the holidays so that the schools in. Oakland would open a "week earlier or a week later than the San Francisco .ecnools. , i . WOULD AVOID RUSH. . "There are but two or three firms." he said "that carry- all the supplies and when the schools on both sides of the bay pen at the same time, working night and day trkiv are unable tn send 4 NOTtCE TO BIG YC LISTS! . some . folks say that advertising pays, some say IT DOES NOT. A TEST! - ' On Saturday, April 15th, Only We Will Sell BICYCLE LAMPS FL FOR )NE-HALF THE ,REGULA R BRINGING IN THE COUPON EACH PURCHASER. ' This coupon entitles the holder to purchase ONE of our Bicycle Lamps at 25c. ' ' THESE, LAMPS ARE THE REGULAR -75c KIND, WHICH CAN BE SEEN IN OUR DISPLAY W INDOW.. , DUCK CYCLE AND MOTOR CO.

Superintendent McClymonds pointed out that the very purpose of the -change was to make the holidays come together. "People on this side of the bay are so closely connected," he said., "with those of San Francisco in all their business relations that experience has taught us that the best to be done is to have the holidays c'ome together." PUBLie DEMAND GREATEST. Director Wood said in entering into tho-discussion: "The ideal way to have the holidays is to have the dates the same in all of the, bay cities. In the East in many of jhe -States the . Legislature sets the time for the holidays, so that the schools of an entire State have their holidays at the same time. "As far as the wholesale men are concerned there are Wcry few of them and it seems to me that knowing when the schools are to open that if they began their preparations aweek earlier they could meet the demand as well as they do at the present time." President Clift then put the motion which carried unanimously. with the exception of CrandaU's vote, fixing the school terms ' so that they will have twenty-one weeks in each term. WOULD BE JANITOR. j An application was read from Hartwig C. Tombs of f39 Walsworth avenue to he. given a position of janitor in the public schools. He states that at present he is in the railway mail service. 1 The application was ordered filed. GIVES LAND FOR STREET. A resolution 'was passed dedicating' a thirty-foot strip of land on the northern side of the land bought for the site of what is to be known as the Washington school in the Porier tract Id the city for a public street. Racine street it was explained was to be continued thorough this property, and it was bought with this understanding, a clause to that effect having: been inserted in the deed. With this understanding the resolution carried. FIRE STARTED BY LIGHTENING HUNTINGTON, W. Va, April 11.

There was a vigorous protest from 797 residents against passing any re strictive measures as far as bicycle j riding on the sidewalks was concerned. The communication urges that those who are now violating the law be punished sufficiently to make them desist from riding on the sidewalk where pedestrians have the prior right. It is suggested that four special policemen a day be detailed to do nothing but catch bicycle riders who do not respect the rights of pedestrians. It is calculated that, four policemen can muke forty arrests a day. This number, it is estimated, would soon compel the bicyclists to live up to the terms of the present law. ' There are about 200 business men who have signed the petition stating tha it would hart them 'seriously financially if women and others were not allowed to ride bicycles . particularly in the outlying district. - It js suggested that if the penalty is raised to a $25 fine or the forfeiture of a bicycle that the riders will not be so reckless, j There wsls no action taken on the protest. It was referred to the' Ordinance and Judiciary Committee. BUILDING INSPEwiOR. 4& resolution authorizing the appointment wf a building inspector for one month at a salary of $175 Avas passed. Councilman. Elliot was opposed to such hasty action, although the building ordinance has been in effect since April 8. There was an ordinance introduced at the same time creating the position of building inspector permanently. This was referred to the Ordinance and Judiciary Committee. The salary of $175 a month appeared rather large: to Elliot but Councilman Pendleton said that if anything ,the ! salary wa too small to secure a first class man. The Board; of Works has the power of making the appointment and will probably do so atxonce. WILL VISIT LIBRARY. On April 24 the Council will the Public Library in a body, vitation was extended by The in- library Trustee Carlton last night and was ac cepted. Dr. Carlton wished the Council to see what has been done in the way of fitting up the library.

Presi- ?:nese artillery superior to that of ths of the City Council rearranged. Presi dent Fitzgerald said that unless a majority were of the jame opinion, that he could not appoint a committee (to establish the new rules. Elliot wanted particularly to haye his minutes of the meeting placed oh the desk instead of having them sent to his home. President Fitzgerald requested the clerk to see that Elliot had 1 is minutes placed $in his desk. MAYOR'S SUGGESTION. In a eommunication tot the Council approving the ordinance! accepting Twelfth street, Mayor Mott said that it would be advisable hereafter to exclude such portions of the street as is occupied by. street railways and Other corporations. The idea of excluding those portions of the street is to make it binding on the .street railways to keep their portion of the street in re pair.- 4 -Resolutions were disposed of as follows: i Creating position of building inspector for one month at salary of $175.

Adjourned. japanTSs up its army TOKIO, April 1J. Japan is meeting the Russian plan of reorganization and reinforcement of its Manchurian armies with an extensive expedition from its own military organization. ' The detailsNand figures are carefully con cealed of what seems to be a 'plan to double the present army units, but It is reliably estimated that by autumn next the total military organization will exceed a million men actually em-visit ployed in the field. The new fighting force is roughly estimated at 700,000 men, with increases largely In the int fantry and artillery, although an enlargement in the cavalry branch is also contemplated. As a result of the manufacture at I the arsenals in Japan together with icaptures and purchases of guns, it ii, Russians, in quality as well as numerically, and it is confidently believed that the Russians will be, incapable ot overcoming these numerical disadvan tages. Wherever railway improvements are possible they will be carried out when Japan will be sufficiently strong to take and hold Harbin, and simultan eously continue operations against the Russian forces to the eastward of that city. x.

However loudly heralded, they may not hope for world-wide preeminence unless they meet with the general approval, not of individuals only, . but of the many who have the happy faculty of selecting, enjoying and learning the real worth of the choicest products. Their commendation, consequently, becomes important to others, since to meet the requirements of the well informed of all countries the method of manufacture must be of the most perfect order and the combination, the most excellent of Its kind.

Syrup of Figs, is everywhere accepted, throughout the world, as the best of family laxatives. Its quality is due not only to the excellence of the combination of the laxative and carminative principles of plants known to act most beneficially on the system and presented in the form of a pleasant and refreshing liquid, but also to the method of manufacture of the California Fig Syrup Co.. which ensures that uniformity and purity essential In a remedy intended for family use.
