A Survey of the Republican Gub
ernatorial Field.
Hsrkham and Chipman Are Both Said to Be
Gaining Strength— Morrow Stands in a
Peculiar Pcskim.
The friends of W. W. Morrow, among whom
aro ex-Governor George Ci Perkins, W. L.
Merry, Wendell Easton, Irving M. Scott. E. P.
Danlorth, F. S. Slralttrn. C. A. Alexander. John
C. Quinn and others, held a meeting yesterday
Iternoon fur the purpose of providing against
the report*, which have been put la cli dilution
t hat the iormer had withdrawn from the guber
natorial light. Alter a lengthy discus
sion, the friends of Mr. Morrow con
cluded that he is tlie man to lead
the party to victory, and resolved to telegraph
the Congressman Irom Ihe Fourth District that
they recommended bis candidacy and would use
nil honorable means to secure his nomination.
One of the geutlemen present stated that it was
In lie regretted that owluc to public duties in
Washington Mr. Morrow could not be present at
tlie convention in Sacramento.
His friends declare their intention or opening
headquarters at the '..'Mr*;; Eagle Hotel, and
malting a light for him. The story which has
been circulated as lo his having been advised by
bis Irieuds to withdraw, they denounce as a
canaid slatted by his opponents to weaken his
cau-e.
In the mean Iter, the Congressman himself is
singularly reticent, and has never denied or af
firmed his candidacy.
Markham Is said to be gaining strength, and it
is claimed that he will go Into Hie convention at
Sacramento wltn everyone of Iho 181 votes from
tin- Sixlh Congressional District. I.os Angeles
and San Diego have already been pledged to htm
with ihelr eighty seven voles. San Bernardino,
with Its sixteen delegates, although the home of
Governor Waterman, will, It is claimed, be In
structed for Mar bam.
So also will the counties of Orange. Ventura,
San Luis Ohisno. Mouterey ar.d San Benito, with
thirty-eight moie. Fresno, Kern and Tulare,
wiili thirty-one, are favorable to mm. as also are
Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and Alameda, with
seventy-nine more. Santa Barbara may give
nil complimentary votes to Klwood Cooper, but
it Is claimed mat before the day ol the conven
tion ihey will be in live for Markham. Yolo,
Suiter and Sierra are expected to vole tire same
way. making nineteen lv add to those already
named.
WHAT HIS FKIENDS AIM.
Mr- friends are also claiming strength for him
In Sacramento. San Francisco, Sau Mateo, Hum
boldt. Placer. Lan c and Mendocino counties, or
enough with those already named to give him
the nomination ou the first ballot. They aie
calculating on Hie votes of Napa and Sonoma,
Iweuty-sevcn lb number, on tire second ballot,
should one be not sutlicient. This lhev base ou
the belie! that Frank 1.. Coomb-, to whom the
above counties win give a complimentary vole,
will conclude to accept second place if obtain
able, and that Ills only hope would be to throw
nts strength in Mat Ulr.rin. as any other man, tf
nominated, would lender impossible his claims
for the Lieutenant Governor shin.
Sacramento, 100, may vote on the first ballot
for Gregory, who is a young man, and who
would, It Is believed, be satisfied to preside over
tire Senate.
Mai I* ham's most formidable opponent at pres
ent Is General N. I*. Ctilpmau, who was referred
to in 'lase columns some time ago as the most
promising of tire daik horses. Colusa, Shasta,
Siskiyou and Del Norte are claimed by bis ad
herents as solid lor him, while they assert that
ire will draw a number of votes from Lake,
Mendocino. Iliimbolt. Lassen, Modoc aud
Tehama. In fact be is said to be strong politi
cally throughout the entire northern portion of
lire State, aud it il came to a serious light be is
expected to slip In.
Patterson and sblppes may help to complicate
matters more or less, but tin- iormer Iras, no
doubt, a greater following than the taller, who
cannot, it Is reported, hold long to his own
country,

SUSPICIOUS OF BUCKLEY.
Ills Followers ff«rj or Uls Air of Ex
* clnsi retires.
The Buckley men are still hard at work
segregating aud arranging tbe names which
have been signed to their pledges, and promise
before the end oi Ibe present week to have their
organization complete In nearly every one of the
310 precincts In the city.
There Is no doubt that the movement Is
troubling the " boss," and he will. It is believed,
make an effort soon to " pull It down." How lar
lie can succeed Is a question for the future to
decide; bui it Is dollars lo dimes he will be badly
frightened belore lie succeeds, He Is losing
strength every day. : ad all because Of bis inor
dinate desire for social recognition.
Tire "lambs" are beginning to find to Ihelr
sonow lira! tlie stories of his Intention to hold
himself aloof from tbem are only too true, and
Ibis is causing iliem to regard him with sus
picion. They realize, too, that by their efforts
he has grown rich, and while they remain poor
lr.: Is preparing to shake them oil. This feeling
Is growing deeper as the days go by, and mutlcr
ings of discontent are already heard.
Mnlealrey Holding tire Fort.
Jim Mulcabey still holds the toil at the corner
of Stockton nod Ellis streets, but it is painfully
evident that tire glory of the Republican Execu
tive Committee lias departed. Somebody lias
"fallen down" and the promised bolt is beard of
no more. Andy Loudeiback persists in main
taining lhat the headquarters will be kept open
until alter lbe election, hut there are those who
doubt the possibility of such an assertion prov
ing Hue. The probabilities are that their task is
ended and ihat they will quietly close up shop to
the near future. *

MOKE BURSTING
OF ROTTEN HOSE.
Four Honses Destroyed on Twen-
tietli Street.
The Fire Originates in an Old Wooden Ash
Barrel— A Total Loss of $15,000 Is
Entailed.
A fire broke out al 5:30 o'clock yesterday
afternoon on the corner of Stevenson and Twen
tieth streets, which gave the department con
siderable trouble In handling, and which at one
time looked as if It would carry the entire block.
The tire started in the rear of a two-story
frame at 828 and 830 Twentieth street, owned
by J. A. Spainer and occupied by Charles Fink
and S. W. Fusseit. lt had obtained consider
able headway before It was discovered. An
alarm was Immediately rung In from Box 142,
but before the arrival of the department the
flames had enveloped the greater part of the
building.
A fresh breeze was blowing at the time, which
fanned the blaze until the flames were communi
cated to lbe adjoining structure, another two
story frame owned by James Callopy. The
secoud story was occupied by the owner, while
in the first was a grocery kept by John Tled
nian. The {tames were light modern structures
and easily succumbed to the flames. -----.'
While a stream from Hose 21 was playing on
the fire the hose suddenly burst, completely
flooding the street and Captain White of Hie Fire
Patrol. Tills proved a setback to the men who
were king to control lite flames. They wero
compelled to witness the fire spreading to a third
building, a two-story frame, at 1808 -Steveusou
street, owned also by .lames Callopy aud occu
pied as a dwelling by James Budget's.
MORE BUILDINGS ATTACKED.
A fourth building was attacked, notwithstand
ing the efforts of the firemen lo confine the flames
to the structures mentioned. The next building
logo was a three-story Irameat 1800 and 180i;yj
Stevenson, owned by Catherine Tlghe, who occu
pied the basement. Tire remaining stories were
occupied as dwellings by William Cashman aud
Henry Kelchmulier.
As It was Impossible to save the light struc
tures when once attacked the firemen directed
their chief attention to saving adjoining build
ings aud preventing the spieadiug uf the flames.
In this they were successful, the only other loss
being a alleht damage to the roof of a two-story
frame at 18G4 Steveusou street, owned by U. I*.
Ferine.
The spreading of the flumes over so extensive
.1 territory was attributed to the bursting ol hose
at the critical stages during lire progress ot the
lite. The total damage is estimated at $15,000,
almost evenly divided beiween the ditlerent
bouses, except the last, which was only burned
ou the loot. The remaining buildings may be
said to be totally destroyed, as what Is left of
tliem In the way of standing charred walls Is
only good for firewood.
A loss of {15,000.
The $15,000 estimate also includes the losses
of personal property by the diffeient parties re
siding 111 the burned buildings. The loss is only
partly coveted by insurance. Among those In
sured are J. A. Kpamer, Charles link and James
Callopy, Mrs. Tlghe had no insurance on her
-ma! properly, nor had James Rogers and
William Cashman any Insurance. John Tied
man, who kept the corner grocery, was Insured,
hut Mrs. Brady, who rau a bakeiy next door,
had none.
The lire Is supposed to have teen caused by a
heated wooden ash-barrel iv the tear of the first
building attacked. There is always a strong
wind blowing through an alleyway there, aud
tbe drati is thought to have speedily lauued the
first small spaiks.
Carelessness With M-itcUi-*.
1 he alarm at 3:38 o'clock yesterday afternoon
from Box 283 was for a lire In a one-story frame
at 237 Twenty-eighth street, owned by Joseph
Nell and occupied by R. A. Matthews. The loss
was $200 and the cause carelessness Willi
matches. ___________^____

lor some time in Oregon and Washington and a
year In San 1- rancisco he came to Oakland. This
was In the spring of 1877. He has resided here
constantly ever since. He was one ol the few
physicians who was fond of his profession, and
but for his close appii catlou and devotion 10 his

Illness dales baca five months, wheu he was first
attacked with la grippe. Ibis was lollowed by
two attacks of pneumonia, one ou the right and
oue on tne left side, the result of the latter being
tbe cause of his death. Au abscess in llie left
lune. the discharge from which caused Inflam
m.ition of llie bowels, hastened his death. De

A SCARED EDITOR.
A n_(_r{Te(_ farmer stalked into the sanctum
With a big whip under his arm.
"Be you tho editor?" "I am," was tbo
half apprehensive reply.
*' Hero's two dollars— me your paneti
for life." ho said. r .*T*
" You sec," he went on, "our daughter was
rack and like to die; she drooped and grew
weak and pale, had headaches, no appetite,
buck ached, bands and feet like ice, couldn't
sleep, backed with cough, and we thought sho <
had consumption. No medicine helper.! her
until sho tried that Dr. Pierces Favorite Pro-
scription mentioned in your paper, when she
began to mend in no tlmo ana is now well and
handsome as a rose— put mc down as a Ufa
subscriber." • ■ •■_
Now tho editor is looking for another scare*.
The medicine has cured thousands afflicted as
was the farmer's daughter, restoring the fe-
male functions to healthy action, and remov-
ing the obstructions and suppressions which
caused her trouble. It is guaranteed to give
satisfaction in every case, or price (51.00) re-

FIRST SEMI-ANNUAL
CLEARANCE SALE
Has CapM lie Mcl
The contagions enthusiasm caused by our FIRST SEMI-ANNUAL
CLEARANCE SALE is something wonderful. Never since the discovery or
gold in California-has there been such excitement among all classes and
conditions of men. Mechanics, merchants and millionaire-; have ever since
the start stood should*!' to shoulder, side by side, and charged down upon
OUR MATCHLESS BARGAINS in high-style clothing. OUR MAIL OR-
DER DEPARTMENT is daily flooded with orders from one end of the Slate
to the other as well as from adjoining States. In their sensational efforts
to check this torrent of trade OUR WOULD-BE COMPETITORS are meet-
ing with about as much success as did the worthy Mrs. Partington in her
foolish attempt to stop the tide with a broom. " "
Some Plain Words:
IN THESE UNITED STATES there isn't a special sale or reliable
clothing going on that Tor INTRINSIC VALUES nnd STYLISH, SEASONA-
BLE WARES can come within hailing distance of this one of ours. Look
around this town and see Ihe BIGGEST Baits of Odds and Ends and Shoddy
that others HAVE TO SHOW, then come here to Bargain Headquarters
and we'll quickly convince you that EVERY WORD WE ADVERTISE IS
THE LITERAL TRUTH.
'
BSF* NOTICE. -To accommodate our patrons who are
unable to get their Sunday clothes from our tailors' hands
late on Saturday night, our stores will be opened until 12
o'clock noon on Sundays during this great Clearance Sale only.
