ERRORS WERE NUMEROUS.
League Teams Play an Amateurish
Game of Ball.
The Senators Do a Little Better "Work
Thau tho Oaklands and Peg
Yesterday's ball game was of the kind
which the enthusiast who knows little
about baseball tactics, and cares less,
likes to see. There was plenty of excite
ment, lots of hard hitting, an abundance
oi errors, noisy coaching, and now and
then a base steal that caused the spectators
to laugh most heartily.
Ward was the source of the amusement
afforded in that line. He has the reputa
tion of being one of the best men in the
profession when it comes to running
bases, and he justly deserves the distinc
tion. He decides in an instant what to
do, and his head is generally level. A
chance to gain a base never presents itself
without his taking advantage of it. In a
close pinch down he goes on all fours,
and plows up the path for twelve or fif
teen feet, arriving at the base in the midst
of a cloud of dust, and generally is de
His work yesterday was conspicuous
for its perfection. He batted hard and
often, and in the eighth inning caught
the ball squarely on the "'nose" and sent
it over the right-field fence. Two men
were on bases when the hit was made.
Ward also handled six fielding chances
in gooil shape.
Tho game was anybody's up to the
eighth inning. Both teams were making
errors frequently, and every player was
endeavoring to "kill" the ball. The runs
kept piling up inning after inning, and
when the seventh was over the score
Btood 10 to 17 in favor of Oakland.
True, Hollman did not receive good
support during the game, but he al
lowed his curves to be knocked out at a
lively rate in the sixth inning, when the
visitors made six hits in their turn to the
bat. He kept Hoover jumping about to
stop his shoots, and was not nearly as
steady as usual. Hoover had one of his
fingers bruised by a foul tip in the sixth
inning, and gave way to Spies.
The seventh inning was commenced
with France and Spies in the points for
tho Sacramcntos. Hoffman had given
out, and McCloskey ordered the south
paw man of the team to finish the game,
i'ranee started in to pitch wildly, and the
lirst four men to bat took their bases on
balls. Not one of them even struck at the
ball, and the prospect looked rather du
bious for the home club, lie rallied,
however, all of a sudden, and did effective
work, shutting out the visiting club dur
ing tho remainder of the game.
Ward's home-run in the eighth inning,
and several hard hits by the Saeramentos
increased their total number of runs to
twenty-three, and won them the game by
The errors made in the outfield of both
teams were caused by the cold wind that
prevailed, and at times the fielders wero
Korely puzzled in trying to get under fly
Hutchinson played ragged ball at third
base, and Peeples made three (inexcusa
ble errors. Both players deserve credit,
however, for good stick-work. Peoples
also made three diilicult catches of pop
llys in short left field.
McCloskey got an error for sliding off
his feet in attempting to stop a hit.
Works looked sick, but couldn't help
hitting the ball. He scored five runs,
but exhibited weakness in base-run
Sunday gathered in two flies in the
ninth inning, and that was all he was
called upon to do.
McGuirk muffed a thrown ball at first
base, to everybody's surprise. Ho does
not often <*■<> such a thing.
CanUlUojQ guarded first base in a bril
liant manner, and will certainly hold his
own with any of the initial guarders in
Phillips was weak in fielding at short.
Youngman did some good fielding work
in the vicinity of the center cushion.

Sax Francisco. March 2S.—The game
between, the San Francisco and San Joso
teams to-day was won by the latter club
by a score of six to five.
The contest was an interesting one- in
every respect, the fielding being excel
lent, and the batting heavy.
Lookabaugh pitched a splendid game
for San Jose, but Lyons, for the home
team, grew tired in the seventh inning,
and the opposing batsmen began bunch
ing their hits. The visitors, by their
heavy batting, took the lead in the eighth
inning, but were tied in the ninth. In
the last half of the ninth, however, San
Jose scored one run and won the game.

CAUGHT A TARTAR.
A Bis Man Who Bruuced to His Own
Thero was a lively set-to on Seventh
street, near J, yesterday, shortly after
Two young men who are employed in a
factory in that neighborhood, had an al
tercation during the lunch hour over a
§10 wager. The larger of the two was the
one who lost the wager, but refused to
pay, and "bragged" that the other could
not collect tho money. The smaller young
man was not disposed at first to insist
upon the payment of his claim, but when
the larger young man essayed to jeer at
him, and call him a coward, he became
lighting mad and pounced upon his burly
Acquaintances of both parties expected
to see the little fellow literally annihi
lated as the result of his rash act, but to
their surprise ho proved wonderfully pro
ficient with his lists, and a verdict was
soon rendered to the effect that the big
man '"was not in it." Two beautiful
shanties of the Eastlake pattern were
erected over each of the big man's eyes,
his lips were swollen, his nose distorted,
he was bleeding at various places, and al
together he was rather badly used up.
The little feUow acquitted himself with
out a scratch, and his follow-workmen
promptly elected him champion of the
A Suit to Stop the Payment of Their
It Is Set Forth that tho Supervisors
Acted Wrongly—Deputy Doody
G. A. Burr, who, it is said, represents a
body of local reformers, has commenced
an action in tho Superior Court to oust
James F. Doody, Chief Deputy in County
Clerk Rhoads' olfice from his position.
County Treasurer Lyon and Auditor
Johnson are also made defendants to the
The complaint sets forth in substance
that the Board of Supervisors, acting
upon the application of tho County Clerk,
allowed that official an extra deputy (Mr.
Doody) at a salary offlOO per month. The
complaint then goes on as follows: "Thus
far, during the year 1»>1, tho defendant,
Johnson, as Auditor, has, on the lirst
Monday of each month, drawn and de
livered to said County Clerk a warrant on
the County Treasurer for 5500 for each
I ILL AMOUNT OF THE SALAKY
Allowed by law for the performance of
the duties of said office of County Clerk,
and the defendant Lyon, as Treasurer,
has paid said warrants each month out of
the County Treasury of Sacramento
County. That defendant Johnson, as
Auditor, has thus far. also, on the first
Monday of each month, drawn and de
livered to defendant Doody a warrant for
the farther sum of fIOO, alleged to be in
payment for the services of said defend
ant Doody as Deputy County clerk."
Burr continues to allege that by the con
tinued payment of Doody's salary the
TREASURY V,"ILL HE DKPLKTKD
And taxpayers injured. He therefore
asks that t'ue court forever enjoin Doody
from demanding his salary, and Lyon
ami Johnson Eton) paying it. The com
plaint qnotes Seetffm2ll of the county
government law, under which the Super
visor.-:, assume to have acted when th«?y
granted the County < 'lerk another deputy,
and expresses the opinion that such pro
vision is wholly unconstitutional and
void, and that Doody should bo paid by
Rhoads, if at all.
Burr's grounds for declaring this sec
tion of the law invalid are that it is in
direct contradiction to the Constitution of
the Suite, which provides that the salary
of no onicer shall be raised after he has
been elected to otliee. The plaintiff holds
that the payment of a deputy out of the
general fund is the same as raising the
salary of the officer.
WXU. AFFECT OTHERS.
This suit will affect several other dep
utyships, as the Supervisors allowed
various county officers to appoint extra
deputies on the plea that the work was
more than could be handled by the usual
force allowed by law.

Some Elegant Displays by Sacra
"What a ToTir of tho Principal Streets
Revealed — Thrifty Retail
Sacratnento merchants have long since
earned, and deservedly so, a widespread
reputation for tho artistic and elaborate
displays they make in their show win
Each seems to vie with his neighbor in
this line, and on every occasion possible
tries to outdo "the block," often succeed
ing. Bat only for a time. For the mer
chant whose store is across the street, or
even next door, realizes what is going on,
and exerts himself to^ show his patrons
mid the people in general, something still
The result is quite natural.
These successive competitions are what
has brought about the reputation for ele
gant displays, of which so much is said
to Sacramento's credit. A Record-Un
ion* representative made a tour of the
principal streets yesterday, and jotted
down a few notes regarding those of the
most elegant and striking displays, and
herewith gives the saiuo to the readers.
"Isn't that just too lovely?" was the re
mark of a lady to her companion, and
overheard by the writer on his tour of
inspection, as the two were looking upon
the delicate and inviting exhibition of
millinery goods made in the Red llouso
windows. The tempting beauty dis
played, echoed the sentiment that it was
"too lovely," and truely one of the most
attractive In this line in the city. Atleast
it is very popular and shows that tho
proprietor does not have to look ahead
for controlling genius. The styles and
colors indicate a thorough knowledge of
the selector, and an inspiring and tasty
effort of the dresser. The two windows,
in which is represented this magnificent
portion of an equally handsome stock of
millinery, is an embodiment of concise
ness and good judgment. Many displays
are marred by the desire to crowd, and
thus obliterate! an article, which to many
would be tempting, while to others a
mere glance would sutlice. Jn this effort,
however, such is not tho case, for
particular pains have apparently
bean taken to accord the witness
ample opportunity for tho closest
scrutiny. iCach piece is so arranged that
the blending of colors is unique and taste
ful. In these windows expressions of
fashion and now beauty may be gleaned
for they contain a bewitching display of
every article that tends to beautify the
head-dress. Among the most worthy of
mention are a long wreath of hawthorne
blossoms; the popular thistle in all colors;
the beautiful imported velvet clematis in
all the latest and almost indescribable
colors; the iris in all its loveliness; nar
cissus, amaranth, jasmine wreaths
with foliage; wreaths of imported forget
me-nots; pinpernel; French sprays of
passion flowers: water and tiger lilies,
and the long double silk poppies with
fringed edge, green and silver leaves; the
imported Carolina rose, made up in long
wreaths; toques composed of harebells
and line foliage, imported violets, helio
trope, variegated forget-me-nots with
rubber tubing; also a handsome one com
posed of lilies of the valley and a cluster
of velvet jacqueminor roses; an imported
hat of silver gray and steel crepe lisse,
velvet and silk poppies of same shade
finished with two shades of velvet
ribbons; large black lace hat, with im
mense shrimp-pink velvet bow, and fin
ished in back with shaded clematis; a
red shaded llower toque witli velvet bow,
aigrettes and narrow velvet ties; a
French imported toque of blue silk lisse
bottle-green ribbons with fancy gilt
sides, linished with a spray of amar
anths. The plaque hat, trimmed in gold
and black ribbon, and finished with a
bouquet of roses and jasmine. Many
others might be mentioned, but these are
the most convincing. The colors of all
are varied and beautiful. This, however,
does not include a third window, which
is arranged with equal care and precision.
Many articles of usefulness to men and
boys are displayed, including black silk
half-hose, balbriggan undershirts and
drawers, lisle-thread fancystriped under
shirts and drawers, black silk under
shirts and drawers, fancy silk neckwear
in four-in-hand, Windsor and Bcarfs,
black silk overshirts, Madras doth, fancy
stripes, French IVnang cloth, in stripes
and plaid, silk and wool-flannel over
shirts, fancy stripes and plaids, French
flannel, fancy stripes and maids.
Mr. Oilman takes considerable pride in
the matter of window-dressing, and
justly merits the enconiums of praise
bestowed upon his selections.
CHAS. .T. FItIiDERICKS & CO.
As wo look into the eyes of those wo
meet to read what their depths reveal, so
we usually rightly judge of the contents
and resources of a store by scrutinizing
carefully the show-windows. An inspec
tion of the tastemlly decorated Windows
of Chas. J. Fredericks it Co. will but con
vince the most ardent admirer of hats
that this city can compete with all others
as to styles, quality and prices. Much
interest is manifested in this display,
principally from the iaetthatexperienced
judgment is notably prominent in the
The latest styles and colors thereof are
exhibited. This firm is considered among
the leaders in this particular line, and 7i
visit inside the store will truthfully bear
evidence to this assertion. The latest
novelties will be cheerfully shown all who
wish to call.
W. f. rrp.NEr.L.
While our investigation has been hur
ried and limited in this issue, the effort
has been concentrated to every degree of
truthfulness. Through no fault of the
proprietor, many windows are debarred
of their usual attractiveness on account of
the late arrival of goods which are gen
erally exhibited at this time, while
others who are about to become estab
lished fixtures'in mercantile pursuits, do
not wish to display samples of the ordi
nary lines, until a completeness of stock
is assured. This latter pardonable ex
cuse is offered in good faith by Mr. \V. F.
Purnell, »>OS> J street, whoexpects toopen
his handsomely arranged stationery es
tablishment on or about the loth of April.
While already stocked with a line line of
goods, Mr. Puruell is loth to making an
outside exhibit, or any pretension of do
ing business until his new and latest Im
portations have been landed. Mr. Pur
nell requires no introduction at our
hands, for he has for many years re
sided in this city. In assuming the own
ership of this new establishment, experi
ence, energy and perfect judgment will
be his criterion, and of this, those who
know him will verbally affirm the asser
tion, lie promises a complete stock, to
be sold at most reasonable prices.

The inspection of Sacramen'o Rtorc
windows would be far from complete
without somo mention of the neat and
modest expression of the full and
expensive stock of music and musical
: instruments of Mr. Hammer. It is im
! possible at this time to devote any space
[ to this window display, but not amiss
to give a brief review, there is no place
where the musical history of Northern
California is so thoroughly chronicled as
at those headquarters, and it has main
tained an inspiring leadership. Indeed.
the musical studio, concert hall, very ex
tensive stock of sheet music, largest
dealers in stringed instruments, the re
nowned Chiekering pianos render L. K.
Hammer an indispensable exponent of
musical taste and advancement.
SACHAMEXTO GLASS AND CROCKERY COM
Sacramento has always been proud of
its mercantile houses, and the peo
ple have insisted that other cities could
not surpass their native city in its ad
vantages to jobbers and shoppers. One
very noticeable and appreciable feature
in the display made by the Sacramento
Glass and Crockery Company is the ar-
J rangement of fine ware in one window
and that of a cheaper grade in another.
Lack of room prevents elaboration of dis
play, or even any idea of the magnifi
cence of what can be seen on the inside;
but careful consideration is given tho ar
ticle in order to secure its prominence.
In one window can be seen French
china; Rochester piano lamp, with onyx
table and silk shade; fanfy parlor table,
with genuine ouyx top; French bisques
in statues and nowcr-holdors, imported
cut-glass ware, French-china fish set
complete, a variety of Eastern novelties,
cut-glass wine set, and other imported
lines. In tho second window can be no
ticed a general display, neatly arranged,
of goods both in the crockery and glass
ware line, the market price of which is an
! inducement to the trader.
SIOOKE * M'GRATH.
Nowhere does genius find more vent
| than in this model window. The dresser,
while exacting attraction, does not de
viate from what should be the aim of all
I exhibitors —an open invitation to inspect
what may be seen in the interior ol tho
store—and in this particular instance a
broad and explicit inference is conveyed
that those in charge are alert to thede-
I sired colors and styles. Not many ar
ticles are presented, but they are gorgeous
|iv make-up aud blending of colors. The
I foundation is of black velvet, with gold
draping—the latter color predominating.
A new innovation in the form of hats
made of sea-weed is an additional nov
elty. Imported and domestic goods of
| all the latest colors and designs are
i sampled. The whole exhibit only creates
: a craving to more thoroughly view the
! entire millinery emporium, which, while
not one of magnitude, has become a leacl
i iug center of fashion.
Without any idea of elaboration, or a
desire to become pretentious in the dis
play, the show-window of this store pre
sents a most tasty mid inviting appear
ance. The space alloted to this particular
necessity (from a standpoint of trade), is
meager, but the dresser is evidently anx
ious to convince the observer that on the
inside a most complete stock awaits in
spection. The window is now decorated
with the latest New York styles of straw
hats, manufactured expressly for Mr.
Nathan; a very complete stock of neck
wear, of which he makes a specialty.
The display of furnishing goods is very
complete. The finest quality of shoes,
gloves, silk overshirts, and innumera
ble other articles of value are presented
to the public gaze.
BOSTON BOOT AND SJTOI3 BAZAAR.
In both windows of this establishment
may be noted the ambition of the propri
etor to materially impress upon the pub
lic the remarkably low prices for which
his boots and shoes are sold. While the
limited amount of space will not permit
of a gorgeous exhibition, considerable
taste is displayed in the arrangement.
SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST.
The System Should Apply to Teachers
as Well as Clerks.
So Thinks Citizen Frank Miller, and
He Gives Ills Reasons Con
cisely and Clearly.
A Sunday Union reporter having re
quested Frank Miller to express his views
on tho subject of single or divided day
sessions in the High School,, that gentle
"The ellbrt of the teachers and scholars
of the High School to secure the
luxury of a single session and a
long afternoon out of school should
not succeed. It must bo remem
bered that no work nor study is done in
summer evenings. After sundown every
one is out of doors; therefore the more
necessity for occupation daring the whole
day. Tho winter lime is more suited for
a single session than the summer.
"An important fact is ypt to-be consid
ered. Our teachers and schools are not
up to standard. Under the easy-going
discipline which is maintained otrr the
teachers the results are less than we should
receive lor our money.
"It is well known that our teachers arc
selected chiefly from ladies who have I tees
residing here, and that many of them
were educated in our schools. It is seldom
that one of them is dropped and her place
given to a better teacher who has been
obtained for the same price from abroad.
If the incumbents do fairly well they
hold their places until they get married.
"It is well known that tho large stores
in this city employ many ladies, who are
of the same description as the teachers
named, and quite equal to them in
every respect. Now, let us see under
what discipline these clerks serve.
"Each store keeps a system of marking
the ability of every clerk, showing who
is at the bottom, and for what reason.
New clerks are continually taken on, and
those at the bottom steadily dropped.
"This rigid process of selection secures
a splendid corps of workers. Honestly, I
think these clerks stand higher as a body
than our teachers.
"The same substitution of best for me
dium must bo inaugurated by our Board
of Education, and new teachers, if neces
sary, brought hero from other places to
supplant the least capable. Probably six
teachers should be retired annually in
this way, and perhaps more.
"The best teachers work as hard as the
best clerks, but tho average teacher does
not work as hard as the average clerk.
"Finally, the parents are to blame.
They think they are paying nothing for
the tuition of their children, and they feel
as if they had no care nor government
over the subject. It is high time that the
Board of Education had the substantial
backing and support of tho parents. Some
reforms should be had, and a few must
not stand tho labor and odium which is
There Is fun in store for tho old and
young. McMahon's International Hip
podrome, or circus, will appear here on
April Bth and remain three days. This
is one of tho best shows that ever exhib
ited under canvas in this city.
A grab party will bo given by the
Wt Morn Star Fraueii-Verein, at Turner
Hall on Thursday evening, April 'J.d.
A careful study of the Constitution of
the State fails to reveal any provision
prohibiting the municipal authorities
from sprinkling the streets whenever
they become so dusty as to make life
It is but charitablo to suppose that the
City Fathers have been laboring under a
misapprehension on this subject. On
the assurance that they have power to act
in the matter, it is hoped they will wako
up and do something. If they hat-o not
the necessary money in the sprinkling
fund, that is their fault —the people have
never objected to providing it.
Easter Services To-Day.
It is expected that the Easter services at
St. Paul's (Episcopal) Church and the Ca
thedral (Catholic) to-day will be unusually
