THE SWIMMING BATHS.
When the Record-Union more thau
two years ago began jtho agitation for the
establishment of swimming baths in Sac
ramento, it had abiding faith in the ac
complishment of the enterprise. The
fruition of our hopes is about to be real
ized, and we entertain a pardonable de
gree of pride in consequence, for we are
convinced that the baths are greatly
needed, that they will contribute to raise
the standard of public health, and will
afrord the people wholesome, healthful
lt is needless to travel over the ground
illustrating the beneficent character of
ihe baths. The fact is confessed by all
the people. All that remains is to con
sider the final steps now being taken pre
liminary to their opening. The gentle
men composing the directory of the cor
poration we believe are acting w*ith fine
spirit, unselfishness, and with an eye sin
gle to making the baths accessible to the
largest possible number, and to contribute
to the pleasure and physical comfort of
all the people. They should, therefore,
have the cordial support and hearty en
oouragement of all our citizens.
Of course, as was anticipated, there was
wide diversity of opinion as to what
would be the best location for the baths.
Bnt now that a site has been chosen, there
should be generous, hearty, unanimous
concurrence in what has been dono by
We bolieve they havo acted wisely, cer
tainly economically. The location chosen
is more central, more easily accessible by
the mass of the people, than is true
with the swimming baths of San Fran
cisco, Oakland or Chicago. Tho distance
from tho very center of population does
not exceed two blocks. The site chosen
also gives both car lines carriage of the
people, and thus avoids all possible an
tagonism. But above all, it conserves
economy of expenditure, enabling the iv-
Btitution to be conducted upon the plan
everyone favors; that is, so as to open its
benefits to the people at the smallest pos
sible individual cost. There are a few
citizens who have been heard to say that
the site is ill chosen; that would bo said
no matter what location might have been
agreed upon ; it is still said of the post
oflieo, ofthe Pavilion, and of every other
public institution we have. But we are
confident that a year hence there will not
bo so much as a single voice of this char
acter in the matter of the swimming
What la now needed is that the people
shall come forward and subscribe to the
stock ofthe association. It is a perfectly
safe investment; there is involved in it
philanthropy and public spirit; it means
progression, aud a nearer approach to the
plane of a metropobs. It means enhance
ment* of sanitary benelits, greater con
tent witn Sacramento and less reason for
going abroad for indulgence in a natural,
rational, health-giving, bodily develop
The sum of money the association
' really needs has not yet been subscribed.
If it can writ*-16,000 more of stock before
tho foundations are laid, we will have a
better built, more convenient and in every
way more desirable swimming bath.
With three or four, or at least half a dozen
exceptions, every one of those who have
subscribed for stock ought to increase
their number of shares, and there are
fully one hundred citizens we could
name who have not subscribed at all,
who ought to do so. and who will be di
rectly benefited by the enterprise. In
this matter, which means so much of per
manent good for the city, let not solicita
tion be waited for; indeed, the directors
say they have no time to solicit for share
holders. They give their time now to
the full extent possible: let the indi
vidual orders, therefore, come in for
ton or twenty shares in large number,
and at once. There is scarcely a young
man in the city who cannot take ten |
shares with ease; there are a hundred
men and women who bave taken no
stock who ought to do so immediately
and experienco a sense of proprietorship
in one of tho most beneficent of local
schemes. Of one thing let tho people rest
assured, tbe stockholders who put
up the $18,000 now written have
elected a Board of Directors that
is a guarantee of clean administra
tion. The baths will be "run" forthe
people; the people of tho homes ofthe
city. There will l>e no catering for mere
gain, no favors or discriminations. Our
children will have full opportunity to be
taught an (MWOnrttl physical accomplish
ment, without which man is unarmorcd
and helpless in the presence of one ofthe
four principal elements of existence.
These baths are going to contribute in
cidentally to another good, that is, drain
ago. The water constantly flowing from
them will dilute sewage and iiush a long
-. wcr line. It is a legitimate aud benefi
cial uso, and the How must be dis
posed of, and the city will thus have a
new reason for speedily providing, -is it
must do in any event, proj>er moans for
disposal of the city drainage. If, as there
It every raeMn l<> anticipate, several new
manufacturing establishments are put
into operation in Sacramento, the drain
age from them must bo taken care of also.
So that these enterprises all contribute to
the settlement of tho drainage question,
a settlement that wo believe to be not
one-third so difficult as has been sup-
posed, and that can and must be accom
plished in the very near future.
CLOSE THE DIVES.
The limit expires to-day for the filing
of petitions for license in cases where tho
law has not been complied with. The
public says to tbe Trustees to-day,
"Grant no petitions for low groggeries,
for dives, for drinking places in disreput
The public sentiment is such to-day
that it demands the closing of all these
resorts for cut-throats, thieves and ras
cals, in fear of whom men walk the
streets at night in peril of their lives.
Though petitions be piled mountain high,
they should be refused.
The Trustees |have tho power, as other
municipal corporations have done, to
wipe out the whole of these places. If
there are no such resorts the criminal
element will leave the city for more con
genial places. They must not be longer
tolerated here to awe the people and dis
grace the city.
"Close the dives!" that is the demand
of the people of Sacramento to-day;
"Blot out the low resorts!" that is the
voice of public opinion, and the Trustees,
we entertain the belief, will, as good citi
zens, apply that remedy for the evil.
TnE full reports of the Charities Na
tional Conference at Indianapolis are now
reaching us. Wo have not examined
any proceedings of any convention where
more practical good sense has been mani
fest. The papers aud debates clearly
disclose that the economy and benefi
cence of organization of charities is be
coming deeply impressed upon tlie
people. The Record-Union will en
deavor to present in brief form all the
material facts developed at the conven
tion. President McCulloch in his valu
able opening paper presented the
startling fact that, exclusive of those
in jail, the dependent classes average
250,000 out-door, and 110,000 in-door pau
pers annually iv this country, while
over 3,000,000 people are supported by
charity, in whole or in largo part every
year. This gives us some idea of the
extent of the field of operations. The
direct loss to industry by reason of this
contribution by it, is placed at §50,000,000
of productive power, and not less than
§5-.,000,000 in cost of maintenance
additional. Thero is not, therefore,
merely a sentimental consideration in
this matter, but one of economics. His
idea is that each State should keep an
accurate register, with constant postings,
of all dopendont classes, inmates of
charitable institutions, etc., with all the
facts concerning them and their support
fully set forth. From this data can be
established a basis for the most economic
policy, and for the best order of relief,
the cost of crime, and the best means of
reducing it to a passible minimum.
In considering the death sentence of
Bell, who brutally murdered Jaeobson
for the purposes of robbery, the San
Francisco Xmca Letter asks, "Is the death
penalty enough?" Well, certainly the
death sentence is not enough. We want
.peed-tor execution. The rule is, that tlie
wretch who knifes or pistols a human
being in order to filch his purse, though
convicted, outlives tho witnesses. How
ever, what our contemporary means by
its inquiry is, that so much is made of
the convicted thug that death is really but
.small punishment if we are to judge from
the bravado and cheerfulness and often
the proud dramatic attitude with which
cut-throats approach the scaffold. Life
imprisonment at bard labor, the Xews
I.- ■'• r thinks, would be more deterrent.
Perhaps it would. But under the new
system just adopted by California, the
convicted murderer is to be transferred
to one of the State prisons where tho exe
cution must take place. This will effect
ually clip the wings of bravado and give
to the death penalty a great deal more of
terror than in the past-
Tn_: reciprocity arrangement with Bra
zil confers upon that republic certain
specific advantages of trade with the
United States. This must tend to influ
ence other South American States with
like products to seok the same advan
tages. If they fail to do so they must
suffer loss. So that reciprocity by the
I'nited States with one South American
State is the stepping tftonc for reciprocity
with others. The same eli'ect will follow
the extension of the doctrine everywhere.
Reciprocity with Spain will stimulate
Portugal to ask for a like convention,
aud France and Italy will feel tho im
pulse also, and so the new commercial
era will broaden naturally and rapidly.
Nothing can check tlie expansion except
stupid legislation crippling export trade
under the plea of protecting some one at
home, at the expense of true protection,
which augmented export is.
Tv k <.|uestion is already being asked in
the cities, "Where shall I go this sum
mer?" The best response to make is,
"Remain at homo as long as health and
prosperity attend. There is need for
recreation, for change and rest, and all
that; but that is not what is meant by the
'go' question. It has become too much
the mere fashion to 'go' for the sake of
going. An outing to woods, seashore or
broad valley fields or to mountain can
yons is a very different thing from the
fashionable 'go,' that means no change
except that which flows from tho pocket."
"Thkrk is room," says tho Philadel
phia Times, "for wide application of the
reciprocity Idea with our American
neighbors." And why not with any
people where we can so covenant as to
enlarge our export trade, and thus pro
tect home industry? Why should wo
stop short with "American neighbors?"
Is thero any sentiment In trade?

WILL THE_POLICE DARE?
Dive-keeper Yates is Thoroughly
A fair sample ofthe effrontery of some
of Sacramento's dive element was had
Saturday night during a war of words
between a negro named Yates, who keeps
a deadfall on L street, and special otficer
McLaughlin had arrested a colored in
dividual named Cole for disturbing the
peace. Yates accosted the officer on the
street about an hour later, and wanted the
latter to "let up" on Cole and have the
charge reduced to drunkenness.
This McLaughlin refused to do, where
upon Yates became furious.
"What!" shouted the dive-keeper, "Do
you mean to say you won't?"
"That's what I said," replied McLaugh
"What! Is the police department go
ing to try to buck me?" roared Yates,
the whites of his eyes fairly gleaming."
"I don't know anything about that,"
was the reply.
"Can the police force afford to buck
agin me ?"
McLaughlin now became exasperated
and a lively exchange of words ensued,
which came near ending in blows.
Tlie Right Kind Has Boen Struck at
There is real gas at the natural gas well,
at Fifth and R streets.
Tho announcement that the public
could inspect tho well during yesterday
attracted a large crowd ot interested citi
cens to the scene of operations. The
tube is now nearly 1,000 feet deep, and
the indications are that a large reservoir
ol'eas will soon be tapped. Already several
tributary ones have beeu struck, and
each succeeding one has yielded better
than tho one preceding it.
When seen yesterday a heavy stream of
clear water was flowing over tlie top oftho
tube, and the gas bubbles were to be seen
During the forenoon several tests ofthe
gas wero made, and it was shown to be
ofthe proper burning quality. A minia
turo reservoir with a burner attached,
waa filled, and when a match was ap
plied to the burner it flared up readily.
Operations will be resumed at the well
shortly, and it is believed that it will
only be a short time before still hotter re
sults are obtained. The outlook is
very encouraging, indeed, and those who
have invested in tho experiment are
A ROTTEN HOLE.
The City Jail to be Condemned as a
Health Oi-ioer Nichols yesterday in
spected the City Jail, and the result is
that he is prepared to officially condemn
it. He found that the ventilation and
sewage of the piaco was simply awful,
and declared that it was as much as one's
life's was worth for a person to be com
pelled to put in much of his time there.
It is a matter of fact that nearly all offi
cers whose duties have required them to
remain at the jail of late yean have lost
their health. Frank Rider was a strong,
robust man until ho became night jailer,
but during the past year he wus sick
much of the time, and has not yet re
gained his former vigor. Officer Higgins
had to give u»* the duties of night jailer
on account of his health, and officer Par

Serious Result of I_ookine* for Mush
rooms Out of Season.
Reference was made in the RKconn-
Unio.v yesterday to the poisoning of a
family named Flynn, caused by eating
mushrooms, or what was supposed to be
The fact was developed yesterday that
it was the family of Daniel Flynn, resid
ing at 1818 Second street. It appears that
a neighbor had been out mushrooming
(or rather toudstooling), and gave some of
his catch to Mr. Flynn's family.
The "fruit" was partaken of by Mr .
Flynn, her boy, and a young lady named
Neely. All three were made more or less
sick, but Miss Neoiy's case became so
serious that a physician had to be called
in, and finally she was pronounced out
Why anybody should expect to find
mushrooms at this season is a mystery,
for he might as well hunt for ripe cherries

Woodland is Thinking of Emulating
the Example ol* Saoramento.
Tho Woodland Democrat wants the
citizens of that progressive place to erect
swimming "oaths, and says:
'•Why should not Woodland have a
swimming bath? It is something that
our town needs, since the one connected
with the flour mill has suspended opera
tions. There is one in Sacramento, and,
so far as we know, it is doing well.
Theirs cost some $.~>,ouo. Of course we
could not ask for one so expensive here,
it would not pay, as the town ooold not
afford it, but there is no reason why if
one-fifth that amount were judiciously
Invested it ought not pay. In Stockton
there is a swimming bath which is con
sidered one of the attractions of the city
during the summer months."
The Bacramento baths have not yet ma
terialized, but the site has just been se
-11-(-tod and work will be commenced at
once. They will cost, however, nearer
125,000 than |5,000. Still, this fact should
not deter other cities from erecting swim
ming baths on a smaller scale. Every
community should have something ofthe
