SHOWING THE CONDITION OF THREE
The Adjutant-Genera), State Board of
Equalization and State Printer
Render their Reports.
Three more reports—these of the State
Board of Equalization, State Printer and
Adjutant-General—have been issued from
the State Printing office and distributed
throughout the State.
Adjutant-General R. H. Orton issues a
biennial report concerning the military
branch of the State Government lor the
fortieth and forty-first fiscal years. It
shows that the National Guard at present
consists of forty-six companies of infantry,
eleven cempanies of artillery armed,
equipped and drilled as infantry, two light
batteries of artillery, one company of
cavalry, and one cadet company—sixty
full companies ai.d one cadet company, or
ganized into eight regiments, two battal
ions and one unattached company. The
force is also organized in six brigades by
counties, the wnole constituting one di
Since the issuance of his last report,
companies have been organized in San
Diego, Ventura, Marysville, Red Bluff,
-leading. Areata, Pasadena, Riverside,
Santa Ana and iiu Francisco, and they
were assigned to different regiments.
General Orton reeomniends that one
more compuuy be organized and sta
tioned :n Oroville, to be attached to the
Eighth Battalion ol infantry, tbus raising
it to a full regiment. He al=o adv.sea that
$10,000 be appropriated by tbe Legislature
for tbe poieatua of overcoats for the
militia. In his remarks concerning the
benefits derived br the national guardsmen
from the annual encampments, and espec
ially when the camp grounds are near
those of the regain army, General Orton
quotes the following from an address de
livered by Colonel Turner before the Illi
nois National (iuard Association:
The officers i.l the regular army can teach us
how to rapidly conn ruci out ot seam materials
effective cover iv tne open field. We can teach
them bow to support, on .-cui.t appropriations,
undisCGumjre'l oatlulionsot'eurue-i ineu. They
can teach OS Low to bear the privations of cam
paigning, bow to put up with disenmtort, and,
• ilten v.itn distrets. We eau teach them how to
bear patiently tbe lack of appreciation on the
part of the public oi our earnest efforts for tne
national gaud, how to dear slights Rad ridicule
without complaint, tun! withont loss of sell
respect, or auy itiimiiutinn ot our enthusiasm
ior the service 1 hey em give ns many a valu
ble suggestion In U.e multitudinous miuutijof
military Instruction. We can give to them
somethiKu ol the freedom and broadness which
comes to the citizen soldier through the un
trammeled roominess of civil ite. It would
benefit the regular army further, iv that its eu-
Usted men mignt mingle for a time \vi;h the
higher grade ot soldier* iv the Natiouai i,uard,
catch something ol their enthusiasm, aud their
spirit of self sacrifice, their devotion to the State.
They (the rtgulars) can teach as much that
will be of value as to the duties und course oi
action which an officer should pursue under the
varying, often unlicuit, circumstances of mili
tary' Hie. We can give to them a knowledge of
the value of a s'.roug pergonal interest aud sym
pathy with the men who come under our com
mand. Aud each could help the other to a
fuller realization o.' the iact that the officer is a
power in his position lor either good or evil,
over the lives and character of the men he
commands, that it is his prime and highest
duty to be a model—an example lor his com
mand in all tbat pertains to the life oi the sol
dier, the gentleman, the citizen, the patriot.
STATE BOAB. 1) OF EQUALIZATION.
The report of this body contains some
valuable statistics and also a review of the
work done in the last two fiscal years. The
Board states that although the mortgaged
debt of the State has excited attention ou
account of its immensity, yet the danger
over the indebtedness is more apparent
than real. The report says:
It ls true that in lb'JO we have a mortgaged
debt of a hundred and sixty-eight millions,
and that in ian) iheie was ouly a fraction less
than ninety-seven millions. But it must be re
membered that the assessed value of tbe real
estate in ltsu was SIW.C'JI -117, while in IKKJ it is
1690,614,069. In other words, the percentage of
mortgeges to th--- assessed value of the whole
land and improvements assessed in ÜBQ was
til.ol, while iv IMXi it is 18.57, showing a much
more healthy financial condition. We believe
the loans made to day maintain a less ratio to
the value el the laud than they did in lasO. In
l!w0 there was a suduen bound into a "full cash
value," which, iv some localities, exceeded the
true cash value. Values have settled down per
manently, and the assessment of IS'JO is below
the true value of tbe property. Within the
past decade California has made wonderful
strides in rural industries. She has seen the
rise and progress of ihe truit industry m such
au extent a- to excite the marvel of her most
conservative citizens. Thousands upon thou
sands of acres have been planted to fruit trees
and vine*; extensive and cosily improvements
have been made, the extc nt ot which will be
exceeded In magnitude in the next decade.
In concluding its report, the Board say 3
that at no time in the history of the State
is the necessity more paramount for an in
telligible, piecise acd authentic presenta
tion of the industrial resources of the State.
Private enterprise bas done much towards
attracting immigration to the State, but we
are deficient in the literature of the Butject
of the resources of the State presented un

Miss Adelaide Moore supported by a very
good company, in some respects a strong
one, appeared last night at the Metropoli
tan Theater as Juliet to Mr. Clay Clement's
Romeo, and Mr. Wheelock's Mercutio.
There are Juliets and Juliets; we do not re
member any two alike, in even a few re
spects. There are aiiiish, exuberant, and
slobbering Juliets: passionate, burning,
dissolving Juliets, as Miss Mather's; stately,
dignified and lovins-under-protest Juliets,
liKe Mary Anderson's. Then there are
languorous, warmly, deeply-loving but not
extravagantly passionate "Juliets, and of
such is Miss Moore's. Her conception of
the part is tftst Jaiwt is a fxiacejs^proud
and stately, but carried out ot her re
serve by a pure and exalted love for a
princely youth. But her love is not
so passionate as to make her mad, or
to lead fcfer into ecstacies of rage or
grief. It it rather a deep, slow-flowing,
but still j irresistible stream of love
by a proud'and princely woman, who does
not forget that she is a noble and the sole
child ot a house of nobles. She does not,
therefore, Warm her audience to enthusi
asm, nor lose something of an appaient
reserve. She is a tall, very graceful, very
beautiful j soft-voiced woman, who in
figure, faofe and carriage might well justify
tbe raptures of a more ardent Romeo than
Mr. Cletupßi makes. The gem of acting in
the pteca was by Mr. Wheelock as Mer
cutio. which arose to tbe level of bight art.
All the company is suffering with a Denver
cold, and Miss Moore was hoarse alio, bat
towards the close of the play began to re-
cover her voice and read with much better
effect, She has many excellent qualities,
is by no meaus a great actress, but by no
means a poor one. We tbink we see in
her capacity for excellent work and high
achievement, and she has everything in
favor of her development. Miss Mcore
was warmly applauded in the fourth act
last night and in the tif.t won a hearty re
call. To-night she will appear as Madeline
in LcClercq's tine drama, "The Fatal Mar
riage," a play that has never been given
bere, and tbat is represented as full of
sustained interest and vivacity, and in which
Miss Moore appears to the" very best ad
vantage, as also does the company. The
company goes hence to-morrow to play an
engagement in San Francisco.

leg was fractured, has necessitated the can

Health of the City.
The report of D.-. H. L. Nichols, Secre
tary of the City Board of Health, shows
that thii ty-nine deaths occurred in this city
during tbe month of December. Of these
five were under 1 year of age, four between
1 and 5 years, three between 5 aud
10 years, none between 10 and 20
years, twelve between 20 and 40 years, six
between 40 and 60 years, and nine above
60 years. The deaths include nineteen
males and twenfv females; twenty-four
were native and ffilecn i'ore>gn-born."
The death ra;e was 15 60 per low. Al
though unusually high, this rate pales in
comparison with tbat of tbe city of Dublin
(reported by telegraph yesterday), which
was 40.06 foi December. "
HOW SHERIFF STANLEY WOULD FEED
THE COUNTY PRISONERS.
Thrte Meals a Day lor Those Who Work
—Another New County Road—
Tbe Board ot Supervisors resumed ils
session yesterday. All the members were
present, and Chairman Greer presided.
The matter oi the petition of C. W.
Clarke and others for a new county road in
Road District No. 13 was taken up, and the
petitioners spoke in favor of the proposed
The report of the viewers fixed tbe
width of the proposed road at 35 feet, and
said it wculd cost the county $700.
The law lixes tbe width of county roads
at 40 feet, so the Supervisors sent for the
District Attorney for his opinion.
In the meantime ex-County Surveyor
Boyd explained that tlie width of the road
had been placed at 35 feet so as to preserve
a row of fruit trees belorging to John
District Attorney Ryan advised the Board
that it could amend the viewers' teport if
desirable, or it could adopt or ignore it
Mr. C-ofton, 801. Runyon and others
addressed the Board, some being for and
others against the proposition.
After considerable talk it was agreed to
have the road, and an order to that effect
was passed. Mr. Crofton will be paid for
his fruit trees.
At the afternoon session of the Board
Sheriff Stanley addressed the members in
relation to the feeding of prisoners ia the
County Jail during the ensaine year.
This same matter came up for hearing a
couple of days ago, and Supervisor Bates
declared himself as opposed to giving pris
oners more than two meals a day who did
not work in the chain-gang. This had
been the rule, be said, but it had not been
lived up to. The Sberitf was usually al
lowed 25 cents a day for feeding prisoners,
and 12J cents extra for those employed in
the chaingang, giving them three meals
Mr. Stanley said yesterday that he bad
looked into the matter thoroughly, and had
satisfied himself that tbere were other pris
oners besides those in the chain-gang wbo
deserved three meals a day. These pris
oners worked inside the jail, and worked
as hard, if not harder, than those in the
chain-gang. Mr. Stanley said these pris
oners should be feJ three meals a day, and
would be fed, even if he had to pay for
their extra meals himself.
After considerable discussion, Mr. Bates
explained to tbe Sheriff that all he was "kick
ing on" was that the bills presented to the
county did not show tbat the extra meals
were for others than the chain-gang. Peo
ple had complained to him that twenty
tive or more persons were being fed as
members of the chain-gang, when no more
than seven or eight had ever been seen on
the streets in the gang.
Upon Mr. Stanley promising to itemize
his bills properly, Mr. Bates 'moved that
the rate for feeding prisoners be fixed at 25
cents a day fcr all prisoners and 12* cents
a day extra for those employed either in
the jail or in the chain-gang. The motion

UNITED STATES SENATOR.
Leland Stanford the Unanimous Choice
of the Caucus.
There was a joint caucus of the Repub
lican members of both branches of the
Legislature last night, held for the purpose
of agreeing upon a candidate for United
States Senator to succeed Senator Stanford.
The caucus was held in the Assembly
chamber, and there were eighty-four mem
bers present. Senator Heacock was chosen
to preside, and in nominating him Speaker
Coombs made remarks complimentary to
Senator Carpenter of Los Anceles placed
Leland Stanford in nomination, in a brief
but fervid speech.
On the call of the roll all present voted
for Mr. Stanford, except Assemblyman
Hunnewell of Mono, wha cast bis vote for
W. W. Morrow. Before the result was de
clared, however, he moved to make the
vote unanimous for Senator Stanford.
It waa explained by a friend of Mr.
Hunnewell, after the caucus adjourned,
that during tbe campaign that gentleman
had promised some of his constituents that
he would vote for Mr. Morrow if elected.
The Democratic members of the Legisla
ture beid a joint caucus in the State
Library. The Dibble apportionment bill
was discussed, but no action taken thereon.
The general impression prevailed, how
ever, that the effect of the bill would be to
legislate the fourteen new Republican Sen
ators out of office.
The caucus then took up the matter of
the United States Senatorship. and S. M.
White was declared to be the unanimous
choice of the caucus.
Mr. White will receive the compliment
ary vote of his party on Tuesday next, and
Mr. Stanford will receive the prize itself.

Governor Waterman Thinks They were
More Sinned Against than Sinning
Governor Waterman clapped the climax
in his career as Chief Executive of the
State of California yesterday by issuing four
pardons and fiveconm>utations. Themcst
important of his official acts were the free
ing of Daniel J. Creighton and Frank T.
Northey, the notorious San Francisco jury
These cases excited more attention from
the public at the time of the trials than al
most any other topic. Robert Morrow, Jas.
L. McCord, "Dick" Creighton and Frank
Northey were each charged with felony in
bribing a jury to bring in a verdict for a
very small amount of damages, in a suit in
which the Sutter Street Cable Company
were the defendants and a widow named
Mrs. Woodj the plaintiff. Her husband
bad been killed by being run over by a
cable car and she instituted suit for heavy
damages. Morrow was a prominent stock
holder in the company, and McCord, who
is now dead, was the Superintendent. The
trial resulted in the conviction of only
Creitthton and Northey, and tbey were sen
tenced to live and nine years imprison
ment, respectively, in San Quentin.
Alter Cieighton bad been found guilty
he deserted his bondsmen, and went to
Mexico and thence to Australia. After ab
senting bimstlf for nearly two years, he re
turned to Honolulu, and from there sailed
to Victoria. Shortly afterward he gave
himself up to the authorities. In grant
ing his pardon, the Governor uses these
WHY HE DID IT.
"It is my sincere and honest belief that
Creighton is les3 guilty of the offense of
which he was convicted than others im
plicated with him who have never been
brought to justice, and I think the pun
ishment he has already received is suffi
cient for bis wrong doing. He bears the
reputation of being a greit big-hearted boy
who was always rtady to help a friend; in
dustrious, sober, of good farnilv, and uni
versally a favorite. Judge J. T. Sullivan,
in a personal latter to me, earnestly re
quests the pardon, believing, as he says,
that justice has been fully subserved. His
petition is signed hy eleven of the jurors
(the twelfth being dead); by E. B. Stone
hill, the prosecuting District Attorney; W.
C.Graves, ex-Assistant District Attorney:
Judge Waiter H. Levy, George Flournoy,

"The same reasons influence me in

YOCXG HAE&Y EDWARDS.
A pardon was also granted to Harry S-
Edwards, who was convicted of forgery in
San Francisco in March, 1890, and sen
tenced to two years' imprisonment. The
reasons are given as follows:
"Edwards is a young man, 20 years of
age, of good family, and thin is his first
offense. His former employer is again de
sirous of employicg him, iv order to give
him an opportunity to regain his former

Fidele Bezy, sentenced to life imprison
ment for murder in Fresno county in Feb
ruary, 1886; commuted to ten years. The
Governor says: "The prisoner being a for
eigner, not understanding the language in
which he was addressed, was at a great
disadvantage and thereby in his an
swers seriously criminated himself.
His petition for executive clemency
is indorsed by the very best
people in his district, the Judge who sen

and the law officers who prosecuted him.
His sentence is commuted to ten years.''
Charles Gerhow, convicted of murder in
the second degree in San Francisco in
October, 1887. and sentenced to thirty-fonr

lowing reasons are assigned: "I fully be

such a verdict. I think manslaughter and
