Entered at the l'ostoffice at Sacramento as
AN ABSURD DECISION.
The City Trustees, in a wise and most
commendable spirit, passed an ordinance
providing for the suppression of what are
commonly known as " dives." The entire
community, excepting only the keepers of
these disreputable places, favored the
policy. These holes are of positive injury
to the city and prolific sources of crime,
and consequently of heavy cost to the city.
The ordinance may have been defective in
some particulars, but in no way beyond
remedy. But the City Attorney, being
appealed to as to the power of the munici
pality to act as contemplated by the ordi
nance, renders an opinion that so long as
the county licenses these places the city is
powerless to suppress them, and adds that
the license issued by the County Super
visors must be regarded as superior. Such
a position, with all due respect for the
legal knowledge of the City Attorney, we
pronounce absurd. If the decision is law,
then the city might as well abandon its
municipal organization. The very pur
pose of the creation of the city was to
make its authority supreme within mu
nicipal bounds, where it is not in conflict
with general laws or in excess of the
powers granted by the charter. The ques
tion was settled years ago by the Supreme
Court, Justice Sanderson delivering the
opinion, in the case of ex-parte Annie
Smith, wherein he affirmed the power of
the city, within the scope of its granted
privileges, to legislate upon all local police
matters. In that case the city resolved to
regulate dance-houses and saloons where
women were employed, and its right to
carry out its determination was not only
affirmed, but the Court went on at length
to show how broad, necessary and wise
were the grants of the city charter in that
direction. The ordinance stood until the
new Constitution came : n with its "woman's
rights'' declaration and nullified it. If the
Supervisors of the county can negative the
•r finances of the city by permits, granting
the privilege to do that which the munici
pality denies and adjudges to be vicious
and detrimental to the best interests of the
city, then there is an end to city govern
ment. We repeat, the position taken by
the city's legal adviser is bad, and not the
law. If it is sound, every person who pays
a county license of any kind and does
business within the city can refuse to pay
the city license tax and defy the municipal
authorities. This would lead us into all
sorts of absurdities, and practically trans
fer a large part of the management of the
o !Tairs of this city to the people of the
ounty, who do not pay one cent of the
taxation necessary for the maintenance of
municipal government. The simple fact
Li that the license fee collected by the
county on business transacted within the
city is a grant no more than a Federal
license, and in the case of the latter the
Supreme Court of the United States has
decided that it does not confer the right to
do business contrary to the local regula
tions, and even prohibition by a State.
The right thing for the Trustees to do is
to go on and enforce its ordinances, and
■Then the right to do so is questioned they
will find that the Courts will dismiss the
doubts and absurdities of the City Attor
ney with a word, and affirm the power of
the city to license and to refuse to license.
It will be a seriou.-. mistake to accept the
attorney's decision, and acknowledge to the
Supervisors that the city government is
subordinate to their will in these matters.
We are confident, however, that the Su
pervisors do not and have not made any >;nh
claim, and are not desirous of interfering
in any way with the rights of the Trustees.
AoOOBDOra to the dispatches, a remark
able enthusiasm is developing in England
for things American. We are told that
in the theaters the appearance of the
stars ;iml stripes is always, nowadays, the
bignal ior hearty applause that often breaks
out into cheering. In all the places of
public amusement the Hag is displayed,
and in <*>me introduced into the plays be
cause it pleases the people to seethe ban

moving side by side. The Ixmdon news
papers show a decided tenderness for
America on the Samoan question, and the
expressions "on "change" and the high
way are very complimentary to the I'nited
States. It is not surprising; the English
speaking people are drawing steadily closer
to each other, and the time will come
when they will be one in a common purpose
and doliny, lmwever distinct they may
may remain in their national divisions.

Mr. Depew's centennial oration does not
read so well as one would be led to suppose
from his high reputation. He is New
York's favorite orator, and a famous
speaker ; but we are impressed from read
ing his speech on the centennial occasion,
that the large part of his fame is due to his
splendid oratory and the least to his ca
pacity as a writer. Certainly his speech
referred to is not of that high order of
thought we had expected it to be — but its
delivery must have been a masterly effort.
The Marysville Apjieal properly con

apothecary, whatever the modern language
with which he is uniiliar. Moreover, as
our contemporary well says, it is better for
patients that they shall not be able easily
to repeat the prescriptions given them, ror,
in most cases, it would result in self-appli

ill than good would result from such a

clares that the old-time "hoodlum" of

opium fiend. The correspondent sets up a
plea for this wretch ; that is, that he be left
severely alone, since he is not capable evi
dently of reproducing his kind, has no
muscular vigor, cannot commit oflenses in
volving strength, such as vicious assaults,
and will shortly blot himself out. That
may be, but unfortunately, if no check is
put upon the spread of the opium habit,
it will continue to do as it is now doing,
constantly gather in new and a greater
number 01 victims, until we will have a
class of unfortunate miserables who never
were hoodlums, nor specially vicious, but
will be hopeless dependents. "
SAMUEL BRANNAN DEAD.
Sketch of the Life of a Prominent Call-
Samuel Brannan, the well-known Cali
fornia pioneer, died at Escondido on Sunday
evening. He had been ill with inflamma
tion of the bowels tor about two weeks.
Deceased was well known in Sacramento
and throughout California. At one time
he was one of the most prominent men in
this city, and amassed a fortune here.
Samuel Brannan was born in the State
of Maine in 1819, and after an eventful
career in his youthful days as a journey
man printer and publisher, he came to
California in 1846. on the ship Brooklyn,
arriving on July 31st. Before the discov
ery of gold in California he engaged in
merchandising at Sutter's Fort iii Sacra
mento, and amassed great wealth by reason
of his shrewn business capacity, and was
for years recognized as the richest man in
California. In the early history of San
Francisco he always connected* himself
prominently with all charitable and worthy
objects, and was in the fifties elected Sen
ator from San Francisco, immediately re
signing on account of important business
engagements in Xew York. He was prom
inently connected with the Vigilance Com
mittee movement in early days, and did
much by bis bravery to rid the city of the
"Hounds." In 1861 he was one of the Presi
dential Electors for the Republican party
and during the Rebellion a stanch Re
publican, contributing many thousands of
dollars from his own pocket for the sani
tary fund, and otherwise sustaining the
Among the prominent pieces of property
owned by him in San Francisco was the
present site of the Grand Opera House, on
MiS3ion street; the location of Murphy,
Grant &Co.'s Building, corner of Bush and
Sansome streets ; Armory Building, corner
of Sacramento and Montgomery streets ;
the Express Building, on the corner of Cal
ifornia and Montgomery streets, and over
one hundred feet in the middle of the
block now owned by the estate of Peter
Donahue. His ownership extended over
many full blocks in other portions of the
city, and he had over two hundred acres in
the Western Addition, and other outside
lands. Mr. Brannan at one time owned al
most a quarter of the city of Sacramento,
and in 1801 purchased the' Calistuga Springs
property, now owned by Lelanrt Stanford,
from John Nugent, then editor of the Her
ald, and expended fully a half-million of
dollars in the beautitication of the place.
In 1860 his wife was divorced from him
he deeding h»-r the bulk of his property.
Business stagnation and financial reverses
soon took away what little remained, and
he proceeded to the City of Mexico to pro
cure the repayment of money loaned the
Mexican Government, during the Maximil
ian war, Brancan having furnished a suffi
cient amount of money and arms to equip
a company of Americans who served the
Republic faithfully and were known as
the "Brannan Contingent." The Govern
ment gave him two million acres of land
in the Yaqui and Mayo country, with such
restrictions upon it that it was impossible
to obtain any benefit therefrom. Subse
quently the Mexican Government gave
him a concession in the State of Sonora,
ou condition that he would survey and
map the same. This was done at an ex
pense of over a hundred thousand dollars,
the company organizing for that purpose
having taken almost the entire concession
for their pay.
In the last two years Mr. Brannan has
resided in San Diego county, and recently
purchased and planted a fine piece of land
near Kscondido, where he has laid out an
orchard of Smyrna figs. His former wife
is living in San Kranciseo, as well as four
children. Mr. Brannan, althoueh a de
termined and positive man at times, was
noted for his generosity and kindness of
heart when confronted with a case requir
ing sympathy or assistance.
A Member of Ihe Smith Family Who
Should •Jlne" the Mormons.
San ]>KRNAKni.No, May tith. — A sensa
tional denouement occurred to-day when
Mrs. Smith of San Francisco arrived in
search of her liege lord, whom she found
employed as a driver of a fire engine. She
also found him living happily with
another Mrs. Smith, who he married two
weeks ago, after a courtship of three weeks.
She also learned that Smith had
instituted proceedings for a divorce from a
former wife in Kansas, so that he has
three living wives, none of whom he is di
vorced from. Mrs. Smith No. 2is not an
gry or tracic, and only desires to see him
alone for thirty minutes to give him ad
vice. No proceedings will be instituted by
any of the women. Smith has a mother
and sister, very tine ladies, living at Rialto,
four miles from here. The poor rrotber is
heartbroken, and Wife No. 3 is beside her
self with grief.

where there is a predisposition to it in the

trouble at the outset, but well nigh iru

evidence in relation to this superb hio.nl
depurent is morn positive than that which*
estanlislies its * iticacy as a preventive ami
remedy for rheumatism. Not only is it
thorough, but safe, which the vegetable and
mineral poisons, often taken as curatives of
tbe disease, are not. Besides expelling the
rheumatic virus from the system, it over
comes fever and ague, biliousness, consti
pation and dyspepsia.

THE STORM KING.
PLUTIUS MORE GENEROUS THAN
A Renewal of the Storm Yesterday
—Damage to Crops-Snow
On the Hill.
Up to 2 o'clock yesterday morning the
sky was clear and the stars shining, and
there was no indication of the surprise that
was in store for the people who were
shortly awakened from their slumbers by
the whistling of the wind and the heavy
downpour of rain. The barometer was
reported rising on the preceding evening,
and people retired for the night to dream
of a bright and sunny day on the morrow.
But the Storm King was stirred from his
lair, and arousing himself proceeded to
open up his batteries anew on a defenseless
people. Hour after hour the rain de
scended and the cold southeast wind blew
almost a gale.
It was a May storm long to be remem
bered, especially by the farmers and or
cbardists, whose crops have suffered se
verely. People who have come into town
from various parts of the county report the
grain, crops as having been laid as flat on
the ground as if passed over by heavy
rollers. The grain was high and heavy
and readily yielded to the combined influ
ences of the wind and rain.
In the city fruit was beaten from the
trees by wholesale, and the fear is ex
pressed that untold damage has been done
among the orchards in the country. Shade
trees were prostrated in many parts of the
city, and at the Marguerite Home, at
Seventh and Q streets, one large one was
blown down, falling across and demolish
ing a span of the iron fence.
TALKS WITH FECIT MEN.
In conversation with a Recobd-Uniojt
reporter yesterday afternoon, Mayor Greg
ory, who is one of the largest shippers of
fruits in this section, said he feared that
great damage had been inflicted upon both
growers and shippers of early fruits. The
cherry trees, he said, had been almost
stripped of their fiuit, while the early
peach crop was probably injured for ship
ping purposes. There was danger that the
moisture would affect the quality of the
fruit, and it was beyond question that the
supply would be limited in consequence of
the fruit being beaten from the trees.
However, he hoped for the best, and a few
days of soft, warm weather might repair
the injury that threatens such early fruit
as remains on the trees.
Postmaster Stephens, who is a large
grower and shipper of fruits, was seen as
he was about to depart for the Bay. He
said he had just come in from his orchard,
and did not seem to be at all depressed
over the outlook. Headmitted that "a great
deal of fruit had been knocked off from
the trees, and there was danger that injury
would result to that which remained, but
the damage to his orchard was not very
great, and he had hopes that the general
result of the untimely storm would not be
as bad as most people feared. Undoubtedly
the grain cropsin some localities, especially
on low, rich ground, had been almost ru
ined, butthereissomuch land that does not
produce crops of heavy growth that a great
deal of grain will be harvested anyhow.
Tho present strawberry crop, however, was
no doubt practically ruined within the
IN THE MOUNTAINS.
Railroad men who came down from the
the summit of the Sierra Nevada yester
day report the storm as most severe all
along the line of the railroad. It was rain
ing heavily as far up the hill as Alta, but
■ beyond that it was snowing hard. Upwards
of four feet of new snow has been deposited
at the Summit, and close upon (wo feet as
far down the other side as Truckee. All
the snow-plows had been called into use,
and a large force of men was required to
handle the fast-falling snow. So far no
detentions had occurred, and trains were
running on time.
The renewal of the storm had given a
new boom to the mountain streams, and a
large volume of water was rushing toward
the main water-ways in the valley.
The effect of the freshet was made mani
fest at this point yesterday afternoon, when
the Sacramento began to rise quite rapidly,
gaining an extra bight of nearly two feet
before night. The main body of the water
from the upper Sacramento will not reach
here, however, before some time to-day,
and when it comes a considerable rise "is
looked for. The fresbet will probably ex
ceed that of any time during the past
The Signal Service records show the rain
fall in this city up too o'clock last evening,
to have been .72 of an inch. The barom
eter was falling up to 5 p. m. yesterday.
The total rainfall, up to 5 o'clock last
night, was for this month and this btorrn,
3 14 inches, making a total of 1!) oU inches,
which is the same as the average seasonal
rainfall, as deduced from a record of 40
years. The highest and lowest tempera
