IN OPEN MEETING.
Some of the Speeches Made —Damaging
Charges Against Officials.
The open meeting held on Thursday
vening was largely attended, and proved
» be somewhat sensational, owing to
.rect and specific charges made by dele
gate W. M. Reed of Florin against cer
tain members of the County Board of
The Gait Gazette prints a synopsis of
Mr. Reed's speech, in which it says he
openly accused three members of the
board of having received $15,000 for their
votes on a certain question recently be
fore that body, and that he further stated
that Mr. Nevis, of the Eagle Winery, was
his authority, and that tho latter further
stated that he had himself aided in the
collection of the money.
A. B. BURNS' SPEECH.
Mr. Burns spoke at considerable
length. He believed in order to accom
plish what the Alliance had started out to
do, it was necessary to organize a third
party, a People's party, one that would
drive both the old parties to the wall.
While he believed there were hundreds
of thousands of Democrats and a similar
number of Republicans in *favor of re
form, that reformation devoutly to be
wished for could only be brought about
through the agency of a third party, etc.
The Farmers' Alliance wants to control
thi- Legislatures of the country. It wants
to elect every Congressman in the Union
next year, and by and by to control the
United States Senate.
The speaker delved into the past his
tory of politics fh this State, and enum
erated many instances where the people
were sold out by both Republicans and
Democrats who wore elected to high offi
cial positions. Now that the Alliance
V is going to run matters, no such cor
rupt practices in polities would happen,
lie believed in electing men tooflice who
would chango the laws for the benefit of
the farmer and the workingman. He
believed in making plain laws, easily un
derstood and unchangeable in meaning
and intent. Be wants the national

The local journalist innocently remarks
ti lit "We have not space to give even a
f-vnopsis of the gentleman's remarks."
Mr. Boyne w«is loyal enough to admit,
however, that the Government of the
United States is the best Government on

right, but it was in getting officers to en

Two of the Titistees Examine the City
Jail's Sanitary Condition.
Some time ago Health Officer C. B.
Nichols officially condemned the City
Jail building—not only because of its
rickety condition, but on account of the
abominable sanitary condition of it.
The City Trustees promised to make an
inspection of the old shell, ana did so, so
far as its general shaky condition was
concerned. But nothing was done re
garding its sanitary condition until yes
terday. Accompanied by Dr. Nichols,
two of the Trustees, Messrs. McLaughlin
and Conklin, took a tour through
the structure and had their eyes
somewhat opened. The doctor intro
duced them to foul-smelling sinks, reek
ing and leaking sewers and the like,
until they cried "enough." They ac
knowledged that they "were completely

that the jail must remain where it is, I

His Name Connected With an Alleged
The San Francisco Kcaminer of yester
day published a sensational statement
connecting ex-Judge S. C. Denson, lorm
erly of this city, but now an attorney in
San Francisco, with an alleged scheme to
extort blackmail from Win.- P. Fuller, of]
the linn of Whit tier. Fuller A: Co., and j
alleging that tho moving spirit in the
allair is W. F. Whittier, young Fuller's ]
partner. Densou is tin; linn's attorney.
The story is that young Fuller's name
has been connected with that of a 'woman
named Kendall, who nursed his father,
anil that Denson, acting for Wnitlier —
who is said to be desirous oj" getting rid
of his partner —had endeavored to induce ]
her to sign a statement charging Puller j
(who is a married man) with noauctiou.
According to tne J'J.i<unnn.r.s story the ■
woman made uu appointment with]
Densou, and then informed Fuller and :
his attorneys, who secreted themselves
in an adjoining room to hers; that she
was ill, und received Denson while she
was in bed; that while Fuller and his j
friends were awaiting the signal to enter I
her room, Miss Kendall gave a .succession
of screams and rushed to where they
were, imploring tiiem to "sa\e her;" that
they found JDenson pale and trembling,
ana that he-confessed everything, saying j
that he had acted under instruction*! troui
Judge Denson lived many years in this ;
community, and occupied various po&i- :
tions of honor and responsibility, serving !
two terms un the Superior Beucli with !
credit. 'J hose who know him Lent will !
be slow to believe him guilty of the con

city in the State.
The city debt, which has been the sjteat
bugbear dreaded by ourselves ami
weilded by ousiders against us, is about
I to be wiped out, whether we like it or
! not. In six years the city will be prt;e
--j tically free from debt—a condition not
j enjoyed by any city in tho state. Then
will our tax rate go down froiri $2 20 to §1
or less, and still giyq the city more rev
enue than she How enjoys. Then will be
seen a rush tor real estate, an erection of
factories and a rapid building of the city
which will give "the croakers the heart
disease. Yet very lew people think how
near this time is and what v revolution it

of the cily.
Even now, heavilyl handicapped by the
words and acts of Home of our "promi

winter were an eyesore, but still not
worse than those of Sjoiue other cities,
have been improved by tho enterprise of
her citizens, who voted the expenditure
of $400,000 therefor and by the aid and
assistance of the Street Improvement
Association, an organization of public
spirited citizens formed to do the work
in a thorough manner.
Sacramento has always enjoyed in the
water of the Sacramento River the purest
and cheapest water furnished by any
large city in the State. It was unsightly,
however, and Sacramento proposes, if
possible, to make the supply even better.
The residence portion of the city is not
inferior to that of any coast city, while in
the business portion enterprising firms
and corporations have displayed their
confidence in the city's future by the
erection of attractive and costly build
ings, supplanting old and unsightly ones.
Public and private enterprise has built
swim mine baths; a brewery which has
established a reputation all over tho
coast; a retail furnishing house larger
than any other on the coast; a magnifi
cent club building; au electric railway.
The city owns, through the generosity of
