compatible with a legitimate businees will be offered by the CRITERION. It is an old
trick of the Trade to follow a Live House (on paper), in the publishing of their prices,
and it is the easiest thing in the world to write figures and mislead tho public. What
we ask of our patrons is to produce OUR PRICE LIST, and the goods advertised shall
be forthcoming ; and be it understood that if any house shall, after the printing of
this document, pledge themselves by advertising to supply the same article, at the
same or lower rate, that the said house or houses shall produce said goods as per adver"
tisement, that judgment may be rendered by the public, whom we constitute the only

tS It is almost unnecessary to say, that this List cannot possibly include a tithe
of our stock ; but this we will say, that every Department of the Ilouse will sympathize.
Our firm thinks that it really owes somewhat to the county — aye, and far over the
boundary — for the downright hearty and substantial backing you have given to the
stranger in your midst ; and allow us to say, that during the coming months we
will embody our thanks in a more practical form.

THE STATE FAIR.
TWENTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL FAIR OF THE
CALIFORNIA STATE AGRICUL
The State Fair opened yesterday under
very auspicious circumstances. Should the
speculations based thereon prove to be well
founded, the exposition of 18S0 will surpass
that of any previous year in many material
respects. The Park opened at 7a. M., and,
contrary to the usual .'custom on a first day,
a number of people viaited the grounds prior
to the afternoon entertainment. It does not
appear that there is any very large number (f
visitors in the city as yet ; nevertheless, the
patronage at the lark yesterday was finan
cially largely in excess of the first day of last
year, and the races were attended by a very
large number of people— indeed, a larger
number than ceen at the Agricultural So
ciety's track on a first day for a number of
Were announced to begin at 1 P. v., but the
horses were not called up until about I P. M.,
and the result was that the sixth race had to
be omitted, and the fifth was not finished un
til after darkness had set in. The programme
of races was one of exceeding interest, and
was pronounced by all to be one of the best
ever presented by the society. The races
were numerous, spirited, well conducted,
and evidently honestly run. Ihe new _■} stem
of posting the record of the race on a large
black-board was unanimously approved, and
the satisfaction it gave to all was openly and
enthusiastically expressed. The new re
porter*' stand was warmly approved by the
representatives of the press, who were much
pleased to be where they could view the
entire track during a race without the view
being interrupted or they being necessitated
to clamber among the upper works of the
judges' stand ard hang on to the eaves
thereof by their eyelids. With the system of
colors for all .riders and drivers, and the
posting of positions, th? colors, ami the out
come of heats, the public H enabled to un
derstand and take an interest in racing which
it could not heretofore upon tbe Society's
race-course, because heretofore only the few
could identify the horses during a speed con
test. It but remains fur the judges hereafter,
constantly and inflexibly, to enforce the new
rules, the wisdom of which is so evident, and
not again permit upon the course the
drivers improperly clad.
The first race was running, dash three
quarters of a mile, for two-year-olds ; Terry's
s. f. Lillie Ashe, cob r blue, red and white;
Coombs' br. c. by Shannon, color black ;
Coombs' eh. c. by Shannon, color black;
purse Si*-' added to entrance. The eh. c. bad
first place and br. c. second. Lillie Ashe was
the favorite at Z'M to §'.» for field, but the
field Boon became favorite at $'20 to $15 for
Ashe. The start was bad with Ashe well to
the rear, the br. c. leading half way to the
score, where all three were about even. On
the stretch the eh. c. pushed ahead by half a
length and won in I:l'.'\, Lillie Ashe second.
It was a handsome race and nicely contested.

test ad any man ever need desire to Bee
in a running race. They got off well
together. Snowden led at the turn,
Illusion second, Lexingtcr third. Dun
bar fell to the rear badly. At the quar
ter she came up to a fair position, while
Snowden and Illusion went side by side to
the half-mile post. There Lexingtor took the
second place. At the thtee quarter pott they
were well together, with first one and then
another pushing to the front, and all going
for all that was in them, the race exciting
the spectators to enthusiasm. Just before the
drawgate, Lena, under a lively whipping, came
to third place, and for an instant had the
second position, but Jennie B. here proved
her mettle by passing all in a splendid effort,
and passing under the score first, winning
first money ; Snowden a splendid second,
with second money : Dunbar third, and third
money ; Illusion fourth ; Lexingtor . last.
Time, 1:42J, equaling the best time ever
made on the track.

Purse, $250, added to entrance. Euchre had
tirst place, Haddington second, Wild Idler
third, Tyler outsiije. Euchre cold for $70 in
the pjols to $12 for Haddington and the field.
Pool-selling was active in this race. This
race proved also a success. It was hotly con
tested and finely ridden, creating much excit
ing interest. Haddington led at the start,
but at the first turn Euchre came to the bay
colt's tide, and at the quarter pole took the
lead snd kept it to the end. Haddington at
the quarter fell to the rear. Tyler, near the
half, with Wild Idler at his saddle-girth,
pushed boldly for a first place, but got to the
third position only, while Idler took second
rank. Around the turn Euchre was let out
and opened a broad band of daylight between
her heels and Idler's nose, while the others
were strung out also in tingle file. At the
three-quarter pole, however, they were all
well massed and came into the stretch at a
splendid pace, every rider _ plying whip and
spur, and every animal doing his level best.
Tyler pushed for the front and got second
place by hard work — at the score, with
Euchre first, Haddington third, and Wild
Idler fallen off to the last place. Time, 1:58J.'
They took money in the order stated. The
quarter-pole was reached in :41, the half in
1:06, and this was a speed hardly looked for
in the race. *v 7; ".'

kept Connor at her saddle-girth all the rest
of the route, winning by half a length with
perfect nonchalance, while | Connor thowed
sums of fatigue. They reached the score in

proved a fast race, therefore.

came around the turns, running as if for dear
life. Sillie was in the rear and the field buy
ers shouted in glee. They came down the
score pretty well together, but D.-ane and
Night Hawk leading. Just before the score the
former by a splendid effort went to the front
a half length and won the heat. Night Hawk
st md, Tillie C. third. Carmelita fourth, and
Black, the favorite, last. Time. 1:10. Tbe
best three quarter record is 1:14. In the
pool*, which were very lively, Sallie Black
now sold for $20 and $25 to $8 and $11 for the
field. Tillie C. was ones or twice bought as
second choice. The next heat was a splendid
one and contested " for blood." Night Hawk
led, Tillie second for a brief time, but
soon yielded to Doane, who kept the
second place to the turn, where all ran to
gether, and so to the three-quarter pel*.
From there it was a magnificent struggle,
that roused the spectators to cheers. They
came to the score. Black first. Night Hawk
second, Tillie third, DmM fourth, but almost
neck and neck with Tillie, and Carmelita last.
Time— l:l7. Sallie Black utill sold favorite
at $10. Tillie C. $5, and the field $0. The
next heat was a perfect astocuher. It was
run splendidly. Night Hawk led at first,
but Sallie soon went to the front, Tillie
trailing behind. On the homestretch they
came down, four of them abreast, at a splen
did gait Night Hawk led, and neither whip
nor spur could bring a competitor up to her
side. Night Hawk won the heat, Tillie C.
second, Doane third, Sallie fourth and Car
melita last. Time— 1:10 J. This sent Car
mi liv and Tillie C. to the stable. It
was now dusk, and there was some |
q'lestion as to wbatl.er the race could be fin- i
ished before dark. The judges finally re- I
solved to go on with the race. The next heat I
the horses could scarcely be seen. They came
in closely tot-ether— Night Hawk first, Sallie |
second, Doane la-t, and took moneys in that
order. Time, 1:22. The pacing race was of
course ]>. s'.poned, and will come off to-day at
12 noon exactly.

Some nii-und»-r*tandirg exists about the
passes issued to the soldiers of the Tirst Regi
ment encamped in the city, and on inquiry
the Society officers state that there passes
admit the holder to the Fair, as do regu
lar tickets fir the sea«on, but do not en
title him to any other privilege. This is true
of all other tickets outside of life-membership
certificates. Full membership tickets, such
as the great mass of citizens hold, do not en
title the holder to a seat on the stand. A
charge always has been made for seats, except
to ladies, who go into the grand stand free.
The soldiers have been given full membership
privileges, say the officers, and they could not
go beyond that in justice. The seats in the
grand stand always have been sold, except to
ladies, and that is one of the important
sources of revenue of the Society.
AT THE PARK.
Director Daniel Flint, who superintends
the Park. ha 3 used great exertions to have
everything in proper condition, and evidently
has succeeded admirably. Every available
inch of space has been utilized and has been
taken by exhibitors. New stalls are being
built, and now, in their incomplete condition,
are occupied by stock. There is a much
larger number of exhibitors than have at
tended heretofore. There are horses of all
classes, from the fine racer down, cattle of all
kinds and sizes, sheep and poultry. The ex
hibitors of machinery, farming implements,
wagons, etc., are present, but as yet have not
succeeded in gatting things in a position to
exhibit to much advantage. They have been
busily engaged so far arranging so as to utilize
the power in running their heavy machinery.
It is confidently expected that by this
morning everything will be in place.

AT THE PAVILION.
The Pavilion opened in the evening at 7
o'clock. The attendance was mush larger
than on the first evening last year. The
spaces for displays were all well filled, and
the exhibitors iv all the halls, upper and
lower, were on hand Ito give information to
the visitors concerning the articles exhibited
respectively by. them. 7 . r-;* --. 7.--^77r yl
During the evening a session of the Board
of Directors was held, and the time for mak
ing entries at the Park and Pavili in was ex
tended until 12 M. to-day. This -became
necessary, because it waa impossible for the
entry chrks to comp'eta the eutriw.
The Superintendent at the Park was in
structed to prepara steps to the reporters'
stand ; also to hare notices or placards posted,
on this stantl, stating that it is for tho re
porters of daily papers of the State only.

tfa« Board, Ihe new combination detec
tive ticket adopted Ly the Society as a check
on transferring membership tickets works
like a charm. At the Park Yesterday four
tickets were forfeited, and at the Pavilion
door last evening quite a number wire taken
from the holders, who in every instance
proved not to be the persons to
whom the tickets had been issued.
The Board says it is determined to protect
its receipts against this practice el trans
ferring tickets if it becomes necessary to pub
lish all the names of those who give away
their tickets, as well as those who attempt to
enter on them.
Church, Junes ft Beebe's Band, reinforced
by musicians from San Francisco, furnished
some very fine music during last evening.

One of the most noticeable displays in the
upper halls ii that made by Weinstock ft
Lubin, of the Mechanics' Store, Sacramento.
In the main hall these merchants have a com
plete department from their extensive manu
factory, there being a very long table where
a small army of sewing machine operatives
are seated at work, and behind them a fore
woman, cutter and assistant. The machines
aie operated by a compact steam engine
standing on the end of the sewing counter,
and supplied by a steam pipe from the lower
story. A catalogue of what the firm has
made in this department cannot here be
given ; suffice it to say that nearly every kind
of men's, children's and women's wearing
apparel is manufactured with neatness and
strength, and is turned out with great ex
pedition. This introduction of a complete
manufactory of this kind into a fair is a
novel and interesting feature. In the small
hall, immediately back of the exhibit in the
main hall, and connecting with it by doors, is
the millinery, dry goods, hat and variety de
partment. Here are shown many rich and
choice silks and satins, latest styles of hats,
French millinery, jewelry, optical goods,
shoes, boys' clothing, infants' suits, elegant
opera cloaks, fine dress goods, etc. The light
ing of these two departments is very superior,
and both are flooded with light from scores of
burners, many having reflectors and casting

a whole, the exhibit is one to be seen fre
quently and examined critically, and will well
repay for the examination.
