" The Men that Have Turned
the World Upside Down,
Have Come Hither Also "
tT THERE IS .ll«T NOW A DREAD FEAR PERTADLNG THE WHOLH DRY
GOOD* TRADE OF SACRAMENTO. THE APPEARANCE OF OTK HOLSE IN THIS
CITY HAS SPREAD A VERITARLE PALL ON SOME OF THEIR COCNTERB. AND
EVEN THE SO-CALLED LIVE HOLSK IS EVIDENTLY AFFLICTED WITH THE
How is it that such a small honse as HALE BROS.', and with but little
pretentions, has leaped into such prominence ? The reason is simple:
First — The people do not care about trading with those who, years ago, when they
had no opposition, bled them so unmercifully.
Second — firms sprang into existence, preaching a new doctrine, their
escutcheon bearing the motto :
" One l?i?ice 3 and Cash Basis !"
And tho Battle-cry, "DOWN WITH HIGH PRICES'." and success crowned their
effort for a time; but, alas! "HOW ARE THE MIGHTY FALLEN!" Having
gained the confidence of the people, they could not resist the temptation of raising the
price, and yet they carry the old insignia. But today, you may write, "Icabod," upon
those houses : "FOR fHE GLORY IS DEPARTED FROM. THEM 1" They have
the form without the power. The people have somewhat against them. "That they
have left their first love !'' The confidence of the people has been abused, and therefore
lost. They still have a few baits to catch the unwary ; but, as a lady remarked to u s
but yesterday, " They have a few cheap embroideries — (see ours) — but my husband,
on principle, won't let me purchase them !" Such were the words used. These are the
reasons why these houses degenerated so quickly, .and lifted "THE CRITERION'
upon its pedestal. Our first house was established nearly forty years ago, and we point
with pride to its record, and that of its branches. The Golden Rale holds good in each
and all. From first to last, there is is no stain upon the HALE FLAG, and it flaunts
from Michigan to the .Pacific ; it is a good, steady old-fashioned American House,
practising what it preaches, and therefore it has the supreme confidence of all classes.
The volume of business in each house grows daily — it is a healthy sign. We, in
Sacramento, are barely ont of our swaddling clothes, and yet we are recognized as an
institution of the city. Only a few weeks in Sacramento, and our house is progressing
with gigantic strides — we don't care who knows it. We know that so long as we keep
in the same track keeping faith with the people—
WE HAVE LITTLE TO DREAD
BIG LEVIATHANS OR LITTLE FISH 1 1
Our success is an assured fact. We are aware that " OUR CRITERION" is a
long distance from some parts of the city, but it is the shortest route to ECONOMY ;
and while other houses are plastering the public with PRICES ON PAPER, we are
fighting a legitimate battle, by producing the goods on the counter, and we believe if a
charge of dynamite were to explode in the midst of our opponents, they would not be
more astonished than at this exposition of onr takings.
ONE WORD IN CONCLUSION.
We don't wish to get rich too fast. We don't poach upon the lady who has
probably spent some years of her existence in learning the beautiful art of Millinery ;
nor do we interfere with the legitimate Hat Maker in the prosecution of his business ;
or the Shoemaker his trade ; or substract aught from the Jeweler ; or jumble up some
six or seven businesses in one, nnder the guise of DRY GOODS.
WE ARE NO MONOPOLISTS.
We mean to give our undivided attention to our own legitimate business, and light
that business legitimately against all other houses. Now, let the people judge. We
question whether it is wise or honest to lose money on a pair of boots, and make the
hat customer pay for it ; or, whether in the long run it will pay to lose money on
Jewelry at the expense of the purchaser of Dry Goods. We have now done.
WE CARE NOTUING AROIT THK SNEERS OR ISM UNDOES OF OCR COM-
PETITORS OR PERSONAL INVECTIVE. Ol SCHOOLING HAS BEEN SOMEWHAT
OF A HIGHER GRADE, AND THEREFORE PRECLI I>K4 THE POSSIBILITY OF OLR

WE DESIRE TO INTRODUCE TO THE NOTICE OFTHE PUBLIC
We have now, with our increased room, facilities for carrying a much
larger stock and a mors varied assortment than heretofore. We were de-
termined to make this department so complete, that it should be second to
none on the coast.
We shall enumerate a few items, which we claim can be purchased at
our house to advantage; FIRST —
WHITE ' SHIRTS!
tr We obtain these goods direct from Troy, and as we purchase in large
quantities, we obtain our WHITE SHIRTS at the same prices as those paid
by the San Francisco wholesale houses. We believe we are the only house
in this city having this advantage at purchasing; for even if others order
East, they can neither find a first-class house to fill their orders, nor can
they obtain as low prices, unless . they order in large quantities. The same
can be said of our stock of •'■-•'?:

tr We obtain the principal supply direct from the New York Commis-
sion Merchants. Hence, we claim the same advantages as in our WHITE
SHIRTS and COLLARS. We manufacture considerable of the goods told in
this department on the premises. We now employ in our Faotory about 30
hands— running tha Sewing Machines by a Rider Engine, thereby reducing

Deatli of a Clergyman from the Effects of

The Oakland Horror Further Details of
the Sickening Affair.
Oakland,- August ; — Three bodies,
charred and burned so that resemblance to
human ] form is almost lost — bodies of young
and innocent children — lie at the morgue and
tell with ' more force than could words the
story of .an awful holocaust. Yesterday a
family consisting of a' husband and wife and
four children, with a visitor, were spending
the Sunday at the house on Second street,
between Madison and Jackson. The father,
James Kalaher, is 'an itinerant vegetable
peddler. His wife, on free market days, sold
potatoes from a wagon. The house was a
little one-story shanty, with a eloping roof,
and contained three rooms — a living room or
parlor, a kitchen and a bed-room — family
living in a squalid way. The locality is near
the arm of the bay known as Oakland creek,
and marsh lots form the foreground of the
view from the rear of the hovel.
CHARACTER OF THE FAMILY.
The neighbors say that Mr. and Mrs. Kal
aher were accustomed to celebrate the Sabbath
by drinking quantities of beer, and yesterday
was no exception to the rule. They were
known in the neighborhood as a turbulent
and noisy family. Mrs. J. B. | Kenton. who
resides at the corner of- Derby and Fulton
streets, Berkeley, arrived at the Kalaher res
idence about noon yesterday, to spend the af
ternoon and night there. Large quantities of
beer must have been taken by the occupants,
as shown by the best of circumstantial evi
dence. •' :•%■** ' :•.•-:•-- 1-.'-.. -'
ii-Tfi-r A BOW IN THE AFTERNOON.
In the afternoon the family was visited by
a Mr. and Mrs. Green, who live immediately
next to the Kalahers, in a house of similar
construction and equal squalor. During Mr.
Green's stay he called Mrs. Kalaher an of
fensive name, and both he and his wife were
expelled by Kalaher.
DISCOVERY OF THE FIRE.
The next scene in the tragedy occurred at
a quarter past 10 in the evening. Mrs. An
tonio, who lives not far from tho house, saw
flames emerging from the Kalaher house,
and immediately ran towards it. Near the
door she met Lizzie Kalaher running from
the house and screaming. Mrs. Antonio im
mediately ran and gave the alarm. The
vicinity was quickly occupied by a motley
crowd and the screams of the little girl tell
ing the horrible tale that there were living
people in the house a number of men rushed
in to save whom they could.
. RESCUE OF MRS. KALAHER AND CHILD.
: The house was enveloped in flumes, but
four men succeeded in bringing Mrs. Kalaher
out of the house and took her to the house
across the street. Jimmy Kalaher, six years
of age, was rescued alive, but he was horribly
burned and lived in terrible agony until '•'•
o'clock this morning, when the spark of life
little children BURNED to DEATH in BED.
Eugene Kalaher, 5 years of age, was
burned to death in bed. The youngest of the
family, Annie, 2 years old, also was burned
to death in bed, and the bodies were not re
moved until the tire was extinguished.
MRS. EESTON's ESCAPE.
Mrs. Fenton was awakened by the heat,
and seeing the flames, jumped from the back
window. Her feet and lace are badly burned.
Her arm had been broken some time ago, and
in jumping she must have fallen on it and re
broke it. She was carried into a barn near
at hand. She and Mrs. Kalaher were taken
;his morning to a room in the brick store on
the corner of Second and Broadway.
KALAHERS WHEREABOUTS WHEN THE FIRE
", At the time thefiie broke out Kalaher was
at the corner of Fourth and Broadway. He
had met Green, and they were renewing the
quarrel of the afternoon. The police were
compelled to interfere to prevent a disturb
ance. Kalaher was under the influence of
liquor at the time. ne and Green were sepa
rated and put in different houses. Kalaber
broke away and again began a row, when he
was taken to the city prison for safe keeping.
PROGRESS OF THE FIRE.
In the meantime the fire was crackling and
blazing. The Department were promptly at
the spot, but the house and those in it were
devoured, and it burned like a tinder-box to
the ground. The house of Green is only
about a foot distant, and only by complete
saturation from the Fire Department hose
was it saved. \
THE STORT OF THE SURVIVING CHILD.
Lizzie, 8 years old, the only survivor of
the four children, a bright-faced little girl,
tells the only story that is known of the ori
gin and circumstances of the fire. She says
that she was lying awake on her bed in the
sleeping apartment in which all were lying at
the time. She was the only one awake.
They had all been drinking, and she was
afraid and anxious. The first thing she saw
was, using her own expression, a lamp jump
up to the ceiliug and everything catch fire.
She jumped up and threw a pail of water on
the blaze, but it only burned worte. She
then ran out and screamed. . . v t»-.'r
WHAT CAUSED THE FIRE. .
This would indicate that a lamp which had
been left burning exploded ; but neither she
nor Mrs. Antonio heard a report When she
threw water on the burning coal oil the oil
naturally floated on top of the water, burn
ing with as. much ferocity as before,

Marcus I). Boruck had resigned from the
Republican State Central Committee, of
whose executive branch he was an active
. member, your reporter called upon the gen
' tleman to iscerta n the truth or falsity of the
report. The ex-Secretary was found, and
the following conversation took place :
" It is understood, Mr. Boruck, that you

"That is correct. 5 1 have." \
- " What were your reasons for resigning?"
j; " I resigned," said the editor, " because I
wanted to get out." - ;.
" Well, hat did yon want to get out for ?"
was the next question asked. ;.
"I decline to give my reasons. My posi
tion will be fully defined in the next issue of
my paper, and until then you newspaper men
and the public in general will have to content
themselves in a state of blissful ignorance ;
but you may be assured of one thing, my rea

petition in circulation here praying for Exec

A fire broke out early this morning at the
corner of Front and Market streets, in the
front portion of the large warehouse of New
bury, Hawthorne & Co. The building was of
wood, two stories high, and piled from top to
bottom with agricultural machinery. The
flames spread with wonderful rapidity,
.and in a very short time enveloped the
entire warehouse. Owing to the hour
and scarcity of the water supply the engines
did not get to work for fully ten minutes
after the general alarm. The roofs of sev
eral buildings standing adjacent caught fire,
and before streams could be thrown upon
them .were badly damaged. The warehouse
and contents were wholly destroyed. There
were fourteen buildings on the block, and
seventeen families residing in the same. Two
buildings were totally destroyed and ei»ht
baaly damaged.' By reason of the fire four
teen families were rendered ho neless. Fol

Suicide— The New Slenmer Columbia.
Portland, August ICth. — A man named
Nelson committed suicide at Junction City.
Line county, yesterday, by cutting his
throat from tar to ear. The cause of the act
is not known.
The new steamship Columbia was thrown
open this afternoon to the inspection of the
public. During the afternoon ' and evening
the ship was visited by several thousand per
sons. The general verdictof the vir-itors is that
in elegance, finish, comfort and completeness
of appointments the Columbia is superior to
any steamer ever on this route. EUctiic
lights were displayed on board during the
evening. They worked like a charm, and at
tracted very general attention. The steamer
will sail hence to-morrow morning. Con
siderable interest is felt in the time which the
new vessel will make on they voyage down.

"Stuffed" ' Mosey. The following is
from the Nevada City Herald of August
14th : ]-/': : 77...
A few days ago as E. M. Preston, of the
Citizens' Bank, was counting over a num
ber of $20 pieces, he noticed that one of
them did not sound right. . He : weighed it
and found it to be a genuine Government
stamped $"20 of the exact weight. But on
close examination ;he discovered : that it
was : stuffed. < What is meant -by a stuffed
$"20 is a genuine $20 piece filled with other
metal. 'The means used for filling .coins
with ■-. such is as follows : The > piece :of
money is split gn 'the ' edge and then a
small drill is used for the purpose of boring
a hole and taking out all the gold possible
without ; doing too much damage to the
coin. - The hole is then stuffed with other
metal .and the exact amount as the gold
taken from the piece is inserted. '< The hole
is then closed and so neatly mended | that
it * requires '. close ' scrutiny - to detect , the
flaw. > The only . way I they I are | generally
discovered is owing to the dullness of i the
sound.' A. D. Tower, Wells, Fargo & Co.'s
agent, found ; a stuffed $5 piece ; this : week
among some money.

A New York correspondent recently vis
ited tho factory where Rogers' . famous
groups of statuettes arc "made, anil Ana
describes the process : The door opens into
an apartment that seems like ft saw-mill,
piled with cords of sawdust and the air
thick with dust and plaster. A little fur-"
ther on are unfinished statuettes— torsoes,
so to speak — a horse without a head or
tail, a Kip Van Winkle without a beer
keg, a wedding parson lacking anil the
fair bride beheaded. "How's this ? "■'' i
asked. "Well," said the brevet boss on
deck at the time, " these are only begun.
Some of the groups aro molded in a dozen
different pieces, and then they are put to
gether by hand, the plastic: clay being
used as an adherent. Then ; l.went
up stairs with him and saw . the molds.
1 The material of these ' groups, 'as
| you know, is a composition of : . two
'or three superior sorts of : pilaster, ;or
ground gypsum, with a mixture of silicious
powder to improve its quality. This is
mixed to the consistency of a thickish
fluid, and run into molds of glue. This
process is peculiar. Instead of being
poured in all at once and left to set as iron
is into a casting, it takes forty or fifty
pourings to make a statuette. The gyp
sum gruel is poured In, washed around
hastily in the mold, and poured out :
' after standing a moment, the liquid .is
poured in again, washed around and poured
out ; and this monotonous process is re
peated over and over, for half or three
quarters of an hour, till, by slight accre
tions, the statue is built up on the inside
of the mold thick enough to cut off the
glne. The - statuettes are all hollow, but
they are solid enough to be handled with
safety. They are not very frangible, and,
when broken can be mended, as the mate
rial all through is now of the same color
as the surface.
A stranger was arrested in Stockton List

Wheat— Business to lay showed no improvement
on Saturday; if anything the feeling was mire
weak. There Is an ence of all speculation, whilo
the legitimate dtmanri for export is almost nominal.
Shipi ers will not purchase at current asking prices,
and any attempt to force sales just now would result
disastrously to holders Receip s are not coming
forward so freely, as r*>me fanners will not send in
their grain unless reasonably sure of quick sale it
better prices than are now being offered. Those
who are compelled to sell must, of course, accept
"the situation, which at parent favors buyers. tin
-Changs to-lay a leading shipi er purchased several
good lots, aggregating perhaps B.COO ctls. The de
tails were withheld, though it was generally rumored
that the prices for the various parcels ranged from
SI 4' J to (I 5, averaging probably close upon
81 42 j V ctl. Advices from England are not such
as to buoy up values, but wide fluctuations in that
market occur when least expect) d, and a sudden
turn for the better is not impossible. Other trans

Barley— vothing occurred today to denote iS7
•particular change. There seemed to be a fair in
quiry, and the recorded i ram actions indicate a
tolerably good business. Buyers would probably
pun-.iase more largely man it not for fear of retro
cession in prices. Holders, however, arc stiff and
confident. Receipts are pretty liberal, and stocks
on band continue Urge. As a general remark, con
signments are coming forward in good condition.
