an unobstructed view. The seating capacity |
at this point alone will accommodate 5000. i

will be effected. Fountains capable of !

Over the throne and balcony there will
be a canopy 1200 feet in length and 500 feet
wide, and under its folds 1000 electric lights
will shed their rays on the river. The arc
lights will be placed in such a position that
there will be a row on each bank of the

illumination will be the connection of the
whole system with one general station ,
from which the general manager may be
able to command every current.
The music committee have been author
ized to engage the American Concert band
of forty pieces, and the Stereopticpn and

SANTA ROSA'S VENTURE.
It Is Proposed to Holds Carnival of
Boses Each Tear In the
BANTA ROSA, Cal., May 18.— The un
qualified success of the rose carnival here
this year has encouraged Santa Rosa peo
ple to make the enterprise a permanent
one. The matterof incorporating the Car
nival Association is being generally dis
cussed. The association already has 300
members, and it is the general desire
among them that the carnival become a
regular annual affair, and that a big pa
vilion be erected for that purpose.
The directors of the association have
about settled up all matters connected with
the recent fete, and everything is in a very
satisfactory shape. It is the belief among
the directors that three times as much
money can be raised for next year's event
as was appropriated this year, and that
the carnival this year, great as it was, will
be greatly excelled by that of 1896.

only been left $50, while the Misses Mc-
Closkey were bequeathed the bulk of the
estate, amounting to $6000, including real
estate here, money in local banks and in
the Hibernia Bank in San Francisco.
One of the grounds of the contest, besides
undue influence, is that the San Francisco
courts have no jurisdiction in the probate
of the will, a 9 the deceased was a resident
of Santa Cruz County.

STOCKTON, Cai,., May 18.— Engineer
Storey of the Valley road was here to-day
to meet the committee of citizens working
on rights of way. The committee desires
to make a slight change in the route just
outside of Stockton to avoid cutting
through some valuable improved tracts,
and alao avoiding delay in securing the
right of way. The proposed changes are

SACRAMENTO, Cal., May 18.-Gov
ernor Bndd does not expect to be able to
make his appointment of brigadier-gen
erals of the First and Third Brigades until

day he will be wrestling with the subject of
the China basin lease to the San Joaquin
Valley Railroad. On June 1 he will visit
the Yosemite Valley to investigate its
management by the commissioners, and
there is not a doubt that if anything wrong
should be found the bracing air of Yo
semite will be filled with flying fur.
The Governor and A. W. Barrett, the
newly appointed Adjutant-General, had a
long conference this morning on the sub
ject of the reorganization of the militia of
this State. The Governor intends to be
commander-in-chief of the State's forces

General Dimond would indicate.

Borne needed reforms whereby the '"feather

A Sequel in Court to the Ro
mantic Marriage of Mr.
and Mrs. St. Clair.
Suit to Determine the Ownership of
a Trottei — Rough Methods of
a Charivari Party.
SAN JOSE. Cax., May 18.— An attach
ment suit tiled yesterday by Mrs. Alicia
St. Clair against her husband, H. F. St.
Clair, reopens a romance of early days in
Some years ago Jonathan Lupton, the
owner of a fine ranch in the Willows,
died, and his widow and several minor
children inherited the property. Some
time afterward H. F. St. Clair appeared on
the scene. He secured work on the
widow's ranch and then set industriously
at work to win her hand. Soon Mrs.
Lupton became Mrs. St. Clair.
Married life progressed smoothly, and
the trusting wife deeded her share of the
estate to her husband. Then came the
storm. No sooner had the property come
into his possession than he sold a portion
of it for $1600, and with this sum in his
pocket left San Jose for a tour of the State.
A woman accompanied him, but Mrs. St.
Clair was at home at the Willows.
St. Clair returned to San Jose last Friday
and, it is said, drew from the bank another
sum placed to his credit by the confiding
woman and again left for San Francisco.
Then came the expose, and following it
the attachment suit, wherein Mrs. St. Clair
hopes to secure possession of the little
property that remains. Now creditors of
the reckless husband are taking a hand in
the quarrel and filing attachment suits to
eet what they can of the estate.

I'runet and Peaches Will Yield Heavily,

Fruit Exchange to-day was well attended.

warehouse 100 feet, and sufficient stock

tension, which will be about $5000.
Reports from stockholders from differ
ent parts of the valley showed that the
prune crop of this year will equal that of
last year, taking an average throughout
the valley. There will be a full crop of
peaches, while apricots will be rather light.
The cherry and pear crop will be light.

Action Brought to Determine the Owner
ship of the Trotter Twenty-Third.
SAN JOSE, Cal., May 18.— James W.
Rea to-day began suit against H. J. Ag
new and Maud Agnew to determine the
ownership of a racing mare. The plaintiff
alleges that lie and Ague w baa each owned
an undivided one-half interest in the mare
known as Twenty-third, and he has at dif
ferent times asked the defendant to con
sent to having the mare trained, but he
has refused to do so.
Maud Agnew is made a party to the suit,
as she has set up a claim to an interest in
the animal. Plaintiff prays that the court
decree that Maud Agnew has no interest
in the mare; that a receiver be appointed
to take charge of the animal and sell it,
and that after the expenses are paid the
balance of the proceeds of the sale be
divided between them. The mare is valued

A large crowd of young hoodiums gath

enade last night, and as the couple failed
to respond when called upon the charivari
party began hurling stones through
the windows and tiring pistols into the
house. All the windows in the house were
broken, and Miss Ida Asvid, a young lady
visitor, was struck under the left eye by a
stone and an ugly wound inflicted. Sev
eral arrests will probably be made.
Perjury Charges Dismissed.
SAN JOSE, Cal., May 18.— The charges
of perjury against A. P. Schoen and M.
Bernstein were dismissed to-day. The
complainant was C. Bailey and the charges
grew out of a suit brought by M. Bern
stein . to recover payment for a suit of
clothes sold to Bailey. It was alleged that
the defendants had sworn falsely at the
trial of the case, but as the evidence was
not sufficient to convict complainant's
counsel moved that the charges be dis

Union Island levee from the wash of the

erosion of the water is particularly great.
The bulkhead cost several thousand dol

will give way is not known.
it is also reported that the strength ol
some of the levee-work on Union Island
is being tested by the water, which has

has "three feet to spare," the water being
that much below the top.
A special telephone message received

inches higher than it ever was before. It
