SHOCKED THEIR NERVES.
A High License Committee Disturbs
Thomas McConnell Gives Some Facts
and Figures—The Board Was
The high liconso problem has bobbed
up periodically before tho Board of su
pervisors during the past decade or more,
and whenever it does it makes the mem
bers ofthe board squirm with discomfort.
It bobbed up again yesterday, and had
the samo effect.
A tear welled up in Mr. Jenkins' eye as
he thought of his election pledges, and
Mr. Bates made up his mind that he
would have to consult his const ituents
before committing himself. Chairman
Greer said that the Farmers' Alliance and
Patrons of Husbandry favored high li
cense, but he did not say how lie stool
himself. Mr. Black promised himself
that he would "do the square thing," and
Mr. Miller remained in eloquent and im
XI.X OROVE OUANHKUS.
What started the ball rolling was tho
appearance before the board of a com
mittee firom the Elk Grove Grange Pat
rons of Husbandry, who were there to
cany out the instructions of the grange
•nd urge the Supervisors to adopt high
license to govern the saloons of the coun
ty. The committee was headed by Mr.
Stick nev, Master of the grange, and
Mr. McConnell was the first to address
the board on the subject, and thestatisiics
he cited and the facts he set forth added
much to "that tired feeling" which had
taken possession of tlie Supervisors.
"High license." he said, "wherever
f practiced, has reduced the number oi sa
oons one-hal ±\ and this is followed by a
proportionate reduction of crime. The
records of Philadelphia showthat in four
months in 1887, under low license, the
commitments for crime were 10,866; in
the same four months in 1888, under high
license, 6,929, showing a decrease of 4,0-7.
Tie- arrests tor drunkenness on Sundays
were 528 in tbe same months under low
license, and 146 under high license. The
number of saloons there under low li
cense was 6,000, and under high license
1,300, Showing B deer, ase of 4,700. [f
high License is adopted in California the
same results would occur, and the bene
fits could only be estimated by millions
of dollars' actual saving, by way of tax
ation for the Buppori of paupers and erim- j
inals. Sacramento County has had -

fects of drunkennes—Blanchard and
WHAT OOtJLD BE DONE.
"One important advantage ot high li
cense," continued Mr. McConnell, "istho
large revenue it will bring. A business
that is directly responsible for a large
portion of the expenses of the public
should be made to assist in bearing the
burden. This i- a simple matter of right.
if the saloons could be made to b< ar the
costs of courts, jails, prisons, hospitals,
asylums, houses of correction, and pub
lic and private charities, made necessary
by their business, they would be aston
ished at the result, and would gladly ac
cept a tax of 9600 per year BS a merciful

tistics again. In Michigan, in 1875, there
were 6,41J Baloons. High license wn> then
I, and ],. r)77 ot* them closed up
within the next twelve months. Tiie
succeeding year 881 more closed up,and so
it bas continued until but few remain.
High license, lie Bald, closes the worst
class of Baloons. ln Illinois in 1883 it
closed about s,ooosaloons. The revenues
iv Chicago were increased from $200,000
I, and ii tie- stale of Illinois
from 9700,000 to $4,500,000. The same re
sults wen- had in Missouri. In Ohio

saloon for every 150 Inhabitants. Tney

and productive employment, in addition
to this the number <>i" drunkards, crime

millions of dollars, laa not expect that

Impossibility, inn what I want is to see
the number of these deadfalls reduced,
and to see the county make the keepers
of I Buppori some ot* the i i
tutions whu-h tiny havo compelled the
county to build."
Mr. Stickney made a few v< marks after
Mr. McConnell had concluded, and then
Chairman Greer asked thr- Supervisors if
they bad anything to say.
Mr. Bates said he would like to hear
Mr. Jenkins tirst.
Mr. Jenkins turned pah;. He
painfully, and, casting a wait-till-I-j
vou-outaide scowl at Mr. Bates, h< -
he had not madt> up lus mind yet, and
wanted to !..-> Letter posted I om

Mr. McConnell said lie hoped none of
imbers would offer excuses, and
thru they would declare themselves one
Way or the other.
But this had no effect on Mr. Jenkins.
He had drooped into Ids seat again, and

Mr. Bates said he "wasn't a-scared to

The matter of sprinkling tlie several

funds would soon bo depleted. They
were willing to help tho people living

propose to vote away any ot the county's

much asperity. When I went to the

much chagrined, and then learned that
the flag was not in the building. I knew
that the bunting was not to be found on

janitress and that it would soon be dis

have since learned—-that it had not been

The Coming Series of Games at the
San Jose Grounds.
A Probability that Sacramento Will
Lose Some of Iler Players—Ward
.Liable to Go North.
The Sacramento baseball team will leave
to-morrow morning for San Jose to play
a series of live games with Manager
Finn's club, which leads the League by
quito a wide margin. The two clubs will
play one game on Thursday, Friday and
Saturday, and two on Sunday. Thetn are
many Sscramentans who firmly believe
that McCioekey'B team is more thau a
match for any of the other nines, and
that the Senators can take any game they
want to. The result of the coming series
ought to settle that question. It behooves
the Sacramento club to defeat theSau
Jose team in BS many games as it possi
bly can, and McCloskey will undoubtedly
try to do it. Manager Finn has a very
strong club, but it will be noticed by ex
amining the soores of lie* recent games In
which the Garden City club has figured,
that the pitchers of the team have beefi
winning most ofthe contests, Harper's
work since fee season opened has been
phenomenal, and Lookabaugh is doing
his share of good twirling to help the
club to victory. Neither pitcher lias been
hit hard in any game as yet, and the Sac
ramento batters have not yet succee led
in gauging Harper's curves to any great
I*. is possible for the Sa ramentos to be
in first place by Sunday, if the club can
win nougfa games from San Jose. By
defeating the latter, nine in four of tlie
contests out of tive, McGloakey's men
will have forced the Han Jose team into
second place. San Jose will still hold the
lead, however, if her ciub can defeat the
Sacramento' ■1 wice.
Ward leads the] ;ague in base-stealing
and batting, but "1 lanny" Sweenej 's ter
rific stick work in last Sunday's games
will bring him in close proximity to the
batting average of Ward, (n two games
he made eight hits out of nine times at
bat. Three of them were three-baggers.
The Sacramento Club is liable to be
badly wrecked in the course of the next
two weeks. Although the League Di
rectors refuse to tell what was done at
their meeting the other evening, ii is rea
sonable to believe that matters have
taken a serious turn. Tiie Northwest', in
League wants all of the players whom
they claim were reserved, but Ward of
the Sacramentos and Van /ant of the
San Franciscos are the two particular
men the nor.hern managers will insist
on eotting. Ward says he does not in
tend to get "blacklisted," and i* ready to
go back as soon as bo receives official no
tice that in must. U is also said that
France is desirous of accompanying
Ward it* the Sacramento mauageinent
will allow him to go. It may b
that four or five of Met !losk< y's team will
be compelled to give up their contracts
and journey north.
Goodenougb, who is playing in center
field for the st. Paul club, is not showing
up in his work as well as was expected.
lie has not been hitting the bad very fre
quently, and is credited with a number of
holding errors. His base-running, how

A CAPAY COLONY.
Busy Fruit-Growers in a Pretty
Yolo Valley—Tancred aud Its
TN THE SPRING OF LAST YEAR
RohcrtA.and Neal D. Barker aaMMlated
thenis. Ives with William McKay, all of Oak
land, with a view ot searching out a suitnh'.e
location in whten to engage in the protltahlo
occupation or fruit-growing. Atter vlsitm*
many localities, they decided on the Capay
Valley, Yolo County, aud the Rhodes tract
Negotiations were opened with the Capay
Valley Land Company, owning the tract in
qneatkm. With w. h. .mun, the General
Agent of that company, they arranged for th*
purchase of about 220 acres of foothill laud.
This being more than they had thought of
taking for their own use, they spoke to a
Dumber of (Henda aboal it, with the result
Ihat the tract was divided among the follow
ing people-: R. L. Hickok. l«> ueies \V. i\
Harnett. 20acres; N.T. Ureathead. :.'<> acres;
Mis. 1., urentheid, 20 aeies: VV. M-Uay, :_>()
acme; N. D. Marker, -JO acres; 11. A. Rarker,
20acres; .1. p. Brown! c, 20 acres* E. n. Haa
lett. 10 acre-;; Joaeph Parker. 10 acres; A. \V.
Kelly. 10 acres, and Frederick Kelly, lOaetca.
So Tar this bad I'een ineielv a private \en
ture Of the gentlemen above n.nne-i, hut ln
talking up the question Of dividing the land
already purchased, it was tound that so many
more wonld like to join it than thearea of the
pnrebaas would admit of, that it was mxtw-
BSSted on all hands, "Why not gal some more
land and divide it up In the same way.'"
Then followed the ideaol a Stock company to
take hold of a larger iraet ami arrange for tho
cultivation of the whoicot it, aftSTßObdlTldlng
it according to ths requirements of the sub
scribers. A. provisional board was formed, a
:. rtnd anally, on the sth of
dune, !k:hi, the Western ('o-operati\e CM
oni/ation anil Improvement tom pany was
duly registered and proceeded to ousineea,
With the following officers: President, Will
iam McKay; M. P.Brown;
Directors—H. C. Ellis, Charlea Brooke and
i;..\. Barker; Becretary and General Manage
Neal I>. Barker; BoUcttOr, I. K. Snook; Treas
urer, F:r>t National Prink of Oakland!
The balance of the tract, ?:;.: & pea, was pur
chased. A. Contract waa entered into for tho
purchase of a large number of truit trees,
vines, etc. This early purchase Of trees was
ttie means <>f saving between 93,000 and
£4,000 to the company, the prices *_ some
cases having more than doubled alneethso.
The ideas which the prospeetOS set forth
baye bera but slightly modified and the
progress of the company has been uninter
rupted. Those who went into it doubtinlyg
have become enthusiastic, and almost all ths
members arranged to sel oul ail their la
fruit trees, etc.. the first year. Conaequently
In this, the first season, some 40,000 tress
and between 20,000 and 30,000 vines will be
The -atisfactory working of this scheme has
had the efieof of attracting considerable at
tention to the work of the Colony Company,
and a number of people are now desirous of
Joining in with them. An additional 200
acres have been added to the sixty acres
For the company is predicted a very bright
future, as well as lor the beautiful \ailey In
which their operations are conducted. How
this marvelous little garden has come to be so
long neglected la a pusste to every one who
has vi-it. d it, hut one thing is very sure, and
that is that tliis neglect, will never again be
felt in the valley.
The fruits set out arc mostly ofthe standard
varieties—peaches, apricots, Bartlett i>ears,
prunes, ti^rs, raisin grapes, etc- while along
both sides of the avenu-s. throughout the
ttact, walnuts will throw their grateful siiade.
A considerable number Of Citrus trees are also
being set out; quite a sufficient number to
demonstrate that these truits can be sueecss
fuiiy grown In the valley, about which the
colonists appear to have no douht, provided
proper care is given to the young trees. Neal
l>. Parker, Ueneral ManagST of the company,
resides on the tract, and to his care is to bo
ascribed much of the success of the venture.
Mention should be made ofthe town-site-,
about which there is a pleaaanl Innovation
Which might with profit be followed by more
ambitious places. A small park of some three
acres has been laid out right in the center of
the town. This park it is proposed to heautify
by planting in it trom time to time as many
Of the beauties aud curiosities of tree und
shrub lift as may be obtained by diligent
search and a wise expenditure of money. It
is not expected that Tancred will ever be a
large aud busy city, but it is thought that it
cau be made a very pleasant little place to
A petition has been circulated recently and
very largely signed, asking the county to ac
cept Island avenue, ou the colouy tract, as a
county road, and to build a bridge across
Cache Creek at this point, in order to givo the
settlers on the east side of the creek access to
Tancred Station. The Tancred colonists are
quite willing to givo the necessary riirht of
way, and are very desirous of having a bridge
there, as the colony lands extend along both
sides of the stream. It is thought that it
would be a very wise expenditure of public
money to grant them this very necessary im
provement, as the operations of such com
panies arc of widespread benefit to the whols
County and State, The attractions and com
forts of the cities are well known, but Co
those who are willing to settleon the land and
show thai the country also afl'ords attractions
and comforts, and ways of making money
pleasantly, every inducement should beheld
The following is a list ol" the principal mem
bers of the Tancred Colony, with the number
ol*acres owned by each, and a fact worthy of
mention is that in each contract or deed is
sued by the Colony Company there is a pro
vision that no intoxicating liquor shall ever
be manufactured or sold on the land. The ap
parent success of the enterprise shows that
