Sacramento, Sept. 11.— The outlook at
the present writing for the usual large at
tendance at the State Fair is not exceedingly
encouraging. Outside of the San Francisco
diTi>ii>ii and the horsemen in general from
all over tliu State, but few strangers are in
the city. ■ The streets are not at all crowded
as In past years, when locomotion was a
matter of much difficulty and a stranger
passing through would find it hard to be
lieve that the. great fair of the State had
been in progress for four days.
Trip old wild rush for sleeping accommo
dations is non tst. Plenty of good rooms
are to be I. ad and prices for choice locations
are witlilntlie reach of even second-grade
It usrd to be the gr^at aim of every horse
■' man in past years to pre-empt one of those
; lar^e, deep, comfortable arm-chairs on the
Golden Eagle Hotel sidewalK and view the
surging crowds as they flowed to and fro.
; Leading breeders have been known to stand
" in line for hours a' a lime to secure a chair.
■ : Now there is I 0 SUrli anxiety; chain In pro
;' fu>ion are standing disengaged and the
' backuien are putting on lots of style, lull
iug around in them. . "■ .
• That portion of Uncle Sam's domain
known as the "frog pond," the Government
let on the corner of X and Seventh streets,
which was brought so prominently before
the public last year through an attempt to
use it for i cm I selling and general specula
tive opportunities is still an eye-sore on
the city, li is covered with rant weeds,
scummy mud, cast-off garments, old boots,
etc., arid the general refuse of the back
yard. This year the pool-sellers are doing
business on a lot on Seventh street, near K.
An awniDg has been placed over it, a saw
dost carpet spread, plenty of seats provided,
and ample arrangements made for the com
fort of patrons. By some curious coinci
dence, right over the entrance to the pool
feili!!;; headquarters a iar^e theatrical
poster has been placed, which hi letters
t»o feet high simply announces "The
Prince and the Pauper."
Tommy Morton, about the cleverest light
weight rider now on the Coast, and whose
good worK in the saddle during the circuit
and especially at Oakland- was the subject
of much favorable comment, has signed to
ride for the Shippee stable, of which Secre
tary Ed Smith -is the manager and Ab
Stemmler the trainer. Mat Morn has sec
ond call on Morton's services, and the blue
and red Jacket will doubtless be quite
prominent during the meeting.
It 1.1. SEASON FOR, SrORTS.
Now that the State Board of Directors
has decided not to run awheel of fortune
nt the track it will be interesting to notice
what the' city authorities will do — whether
they • will follow tho. lead given
them or not. seme dozen wheels are
twirling, hardly one hotel -or saloon being
without this opportunity for speculation.
I'aro games are running in full blast, and
no one need mifs the chance if he so desires
of trying his luck. The sports, however,
report business exceedingly dull. There is
no money in circulation, and the rancher,
X. 1 im-rly the main and substantial support
of the games, is conspicuous by his absence.
The weather wnile somewhat sultry is
-till fully up to the regulation Callfurnlan
.standard. Straw hats and linen clothes are
all the style; fans, too, are not to be de
spised by those inclined to en .omi" int.
Speaking of the sparse attendance, several
eld Sacramentaus who Have had much ex
perience any that there is no reason for any
discouragement. They believe that the
crowds «ho usually visit the capital duilig
lair week are killing two birds with one
one stone and are making a double outing,
taking in first the Native Sons' celebration
at San Francisco, and that they will all be
here in full force by tho end &I the week or
(lie commencement of next.
PARIS MUTUAL RETURN'S.
At the Oakland meeting there was con
siderable discussion about the returns made
in the Paris mutual boxes, and complaints
were made that the amounts paid out, es
pecially in the place boxes, were incorrrect
A little study, however, proves that the re
turns were correct ami that Mure were no
grounds at a 1 for supposing ihat mistake)
had been made, Many of the leading turf-
Boers have gone over the figuie^ and now
acknowledge that everything was fairly
done. At this meeting, howe?c:r,the Direct
ors usually have a perfectly reliable and
competent man to watcn the boxes and see
that no mistakes are made. It would defi
nitely prevent any wrong ideas on the
- part of the public if this mutual box judge
would verify the figures and report to the
)ud«eß that they were right. This idea is
perfoctably acceptable to the pool-sellers,
who know; that it will largely increase their
business if the public is confident that the
returns are surely correct.
NOT ON" EXHIBITION.
Two questions have considerably agitated
the Boa id of .State Fair Directors within the
.past twenty-four hours. First came up the
prnposit on as to whether Miss Addie L.
Ballou's painting of ".Morning" should be
pi iced en exhibition or not. "Morning"
represents a. young female not attired in
modern style. Whether under - life
studies should be offered to the in
spection of the young was decided
in the negative by the Directors and
the painting under consideration was retired
. t<> the private rcom of Secretary Ed Smith.
.One doctor, who is deeply interested in art
and in hors:-rnc ng was somewhat put out
that "Morning" was set back, as it-were,
after being clearly a winner. Ills proposal
that "Morning" be rigged out with a skirt
and hose and waist was voted down by the
majority. "Morning" is a work of some
merit, and many of the kind have, been ex
hibited at numerous other fairs in California.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE.
The second worry was the light over the
wheel privilege at the track. That the wheel
did not wi.irl yesterday at tho course was
solely owing to a falling out between the
parties that usually have a monopoly of this
■ biauch ol specialty. Last year the privi
lege was let at $2om This was thought
: to be h'gh. and was cniy given to take it
away from the people who formerly run it.
Much trouble then commenced. Tiie wheel
men had a great row, arrests of pool-sellers
and wheelmen at the track followed, and a.
> treat monkey and parrot time ensued. The
courts, after much hanky-panky, decided
that running a wi eel is not gambling, and
■ everything went galore. This season there
was a hoi light fi.rineuionoioly. Tlneo is
Wen- received, o.ie from last year's lessee,
the largest of the bunch, $1000. This caused
dissensions, and on« of the unsuccessful
bidders swore if the bid was given to tin;
highest bidder, he would came arrests to be
ii... again. There was so much bucking
and fighting and trotting that finally the
Diric.yrs concluded the easiest way out of
the woods was by not allowing the wheel to
run at all. And so the matter stands. la
the" city, however, the revolving citcle speeds
round merrily in all the principal resort?,
though trie patronize is very light.
This morning Ida Glenn Slipped a colt by
Prince of Noiiok. Ida was toed to the
Priuce some four months ago, and the work
that the mare has had of late doubtless
caused the slip. An old saw says it is the
. unexpected [hat always happens and a very
true observation it is too.
AT THE TRACK.
At 1 o'clock to-day, the hour set for the
first race to bo called for the opening day's
racing ii^ r arums of the association, things
looked pretty blue out at the track. Ed
, Smith's cjiu tenance was as In<ligo-hued
as his bust, suit- of clothes or the ribbon
" aiouii'l his nobby straw hat. There were
hardly ; a handful of people present.
On slid the Heeling moments and
still it looked more ; and more bine.
For the la-t chance the first race was
deferre 1 an hour. 9 When the bell rang at 'i
o'clock to call oat the horses an ami. -I j
iiHii'iitai.eoii.H change took place, and,
be fire one eou'il turn around, a large crowd
- was pro-cut. ;•- Where the people came from
it is hard to say, but they were there, and,
compared with- pact opening duys, the at-.
! tendance, nil set-backs considered, was very
good. The horsemen and the pool-sellers
cheered up and looked as if they had drawn
the capital prize In the big lattery. * Yester
day's judges were Messrs. Lnrue, Greene and ■
Case. Timers, De Long, Agnewaud Lowell.
The track nnd weather was all that could ;
be desired and, the lime shows conclusively ;

the condition Of the track. The Artillery .
Band played selections between heats in a
very creditable manner. ." .;
. in FIKST RACE.
The Occident stakes, for three-year-olds,
had only two starters, Palo Alto's b. f.
Coral, by Electioneer-Columbine, Havey as
pilot, and L. D. Slocum's b. f. Moss Rose,
by Anteeo-Luella, with Bennett as her pilot.
Coral in every respect— size, looks and
action— so clearly outclassed Rose that only
one pool was sold on the result at JGO for
Coral find SlO for Rose. Rose is much
•mailer Tighter than Coral. '.She showed
occasional spurts of great speed, but was
not "in lt'^. with the l'alo Alto filly.
Distance was moved for Rose and the word
was given on the tirst score. To . describe
one heat is to describe all three. Coral
went at once to the front and won by, gen
erally speaking, a mile. In the first hfat
•lie led by ten lengths at the quarter,
half and three-quarters. Slacking upcom
ing home she came under the wire first by
ten lengths in 2:30%. Having now got her
warmed up Ilavey sent her at a merry
clip for the second heat and the game lilly
won by forty lengths In 2:28. In the third
heat she was sent still faster and won by
fifty lengths in 2:25. Electioneer puts
another in the thirty list and die that will
be a credit to l'alo Alto all through her
I.ADY WF.1.1.S A WINNER.
The purse of 8800, substituted, for the
2:22 class for named horse*, had three
starters: l'alo Alto's Lad} Wells, a recent
winner in good time at Oakland, with Ha
vey up behind her; Sargent, a gray gelding,
Johnson driving, and Vidette. Johnny Gola
sniilli, Mattie P and Laura Z were drawn
after several pools had been sold at Lady
Wells 525, field $11, Sargent $7. Even with
them out the odds did not change much.
On the fourth attempt they were on". Lady
Wells in the lead. Sargent second. At the
quarter Lady led by two lengths, then
Sargent came fast dawn the back.-tretcli,
and passing Lady Wells led by two lengths
at the half. Rounding the turn he broke,
and Lady passed down and led
into the stretch by a length.
Sargent was pushed, and Lady, not so m
ingly able to respond to Havey's call, went
under the wire a length winuer from her in
L': ..I 1 ... The time was slow, very blow, and
was explained on Lady Well's i art by the
fact that she lost a boot no the stretch.
That the Lady was considered^ ill the best
of the three was shown by the bet tins. she
bringing £(>0 against Slii. After some little
scoring Lady Wells went off in front and led
Sargent by two lengths at the Quarter.
Viitett- 1 , os in the previous heat, was beaten
ami out of it. Just ns they left the wire
Lady broke, and catching quickly got even
with Sargent at the quarter. They were
even up at the half, when Wells broke ngain,
nnd Sargent had a length the best of it at
the three-quarters. Then' blood told, and
Wells, nicely handled by Havey. won easily
by two lengths in tho fust time of 2:26. Just
a few lene rive-dollar pieces went into the
box on the field's cliance against Lady
Wells for the third heat. They were sent
off without any delay, Lady Wells ing at
once to the front, and, never being headed,
won handily in 2:29%, Sargent, of course,
second. Betting was at a standstill for the
fourth and final heat, it being plain even to
a blind man that Sargent had shot his bolt.
Lady took a two-lengths' lead on the third
score, and won by a length In 2:31. Sargent
made a final effort in the stretch, but the
mare always helj him safe, aud won with
out any difficulty.
THREE STRAIGHT HEAT 3.
Six Bidewheelnrs— C W G (Smith), Hum
mer (Garraty), Our Dick (Willis), Co?tcllo
(McConnell), I'rincess Alice (Kuear), and Ru
pee (Goldsmith)— came out to do battle for
the purse of SBOO offered for the 2:30 pacing
class. Rupee's victory was considered a
foregone cone usion, as lie brought SIOO
against £16 for the field and $12 for Our
Diet, a chunky, game-looking importation
from Carson City. If Dick was as fast as
lie looks game aiid as able to slay li« would
be a thorn in the side of the present leaders
(if this class, but speed seems lacking with
him. Rupee had no difficulty In winning in
straight heats in 2:1514. 2:11) and 2:. 11-.l l - .
Hummer set the pace .in the first
heat and but for several breaks might
have taken it but the colt is still sore from
his past races, and he had to bo contented
with fourth place. Princess Alice, went
fast, and was" only beaten two lengths in
the first heat: Our Dick third, C W (i and
Costello dislauced. Alice whs second by
two lengths, Hummer third in the second
heat, and in thalast Dick by a sharp spurt
took sec. nd plane. Hummer third, I'rincess
Alice fourth. In this heat Rupee broke i.t
the drawbridge, but had too much of a lead
to let the others get any nearer thau two
lengths at the finish.

in the Intermingling of nations they arc a
most important factor in our civilization.
Their spiritual condition appeals stronuly

of the consulate there. A most encouraging
religious condition prevails in the islands.
Dr. Kelson of the Epworth Church, San
Francisco, conducted the b" o'clock meeting,

A Notable Gathering of Repre
Reception at the Booms of the State Central
Committee — Markham and Reddick
Speak— Political Notes.
The first big gun of the campaign was fired
by the Republicans last night. The occa
sion was the informal reception tendered
Colonel Markham at tne rooms of the State
Central Committee, 419 California street,
and those who are familiar with the politi
cal history of San Frauclsco unite In declar
ing it the most successful affair of the kind
ever given in the city. From first to last it
was full of enthusiasm, and it is safe to say
that a more representative body never at
tended a political meeting here or elsewhere.
Among those present — and the rooms were
crowded— were representatives of the best
and largest interests of Calilornia. Mer
chants and manufacturers, whose reputa
tions tire not conliued to limits of the State,
turned out in largo numbers to do honor to
the Republican candidate for Governor, and"
when Colonel .Maikhain entered with John
li. Keddick those present arose to a man
and tendered them an ovation. The ap
plause which greeted them was loud and
prolonged, and when they wera introduced
by Chairman I. C. Stump "the applause was
Chairman Slump opened the meeting with
a ftw well chosen remarks, in which he
spoke of the brightness of the uutlook, and
predicted a victory as complete as that re

NO SET SPEECH DEI.IVEHED.
When tho latter htepped to the front of
the platform all aros-e to urcet him. and tho
applause lor a few moments was deafening.
When it had subsided sufficiently to permit
of his being heard Colonel Markliatu said
that when he looked into the faces of thuse
I vi"! c him, he felt that the presr nee of so
many distinguished men was in itself as great
a compliment as had ever been pnid nun.
When he had learned, he added, the nature
of the ussembliiKe he had prepared no set

knew that he could tell them nothing about

they already knew moru than he about
Continuing, he said: "I think you are

Iv listen tv auy discussion of the issues of
the day, aud 1 will, therefore, refer bnclly
to my history. I will tell you that I was
born on a farm, and worked on one until 1
was 17 yeais old. I remember working for
512 M a month, und much oi my success,
Mich as it has been, 1 feel to be duo to my
early life on h farm. 1 learned economy,
industry and I also acquired the habit of
rising early, and I still cling to the custom
Ol getting" up very curly in thu morning.
[Laogbter.] That is about the worst habit
1 have, for I re*erred a letter a few days
ago from an old Wisconsin irieud who in
timated that if 1 had been spoiled it was
duimg my residence iv California.
EDUCATED BY A FAUMKIJ.
"What education 1 have I received through
the kindness of au old Vermont farmer,
and when 1 left school I joined the army.
After the war 1 went to Wisconsin and
practiced law until coming to California,
since my arrival here 1 have been e.ected to
Congress, the only office 1 ever held in my
life, and I want to tell you that 1 had no
idea that 1 was thought of in connection
with the nomination till my hired man came
home one evening and told me he heard
some gentlemen talking about it in town.
Well, 1 was elected, as you know, aud when
my term of service ended declined a renomi
nalion by acclauiumlion. 1 didn't cure to
live at Washington on account of the climate
and the morals. 1 was afraid of the latter
and made up my mind that if 1 ever held
another office it would be within the Stale.
Gentlemen, 1 thank you again lor the
splendid compliment you have paid me."
Colonel Markham was frequently inter
rupted by applause, aud when he tinibhed
he was cheered lustily.
John B. Keduiek was given an enthu
siastic reception, aud said in substance.:
" In answer to the question, ' Who is John
B. Reddick?' 1 will state that 1 was born in
Ohio in 1845. of poor, but ieaivctHbla
parents. 1 came to California in ISM,
setuiutt with my father In Oakland, where 1
was educated at tho old California College.
1 studied law and was admitted to Hie bar.
In 1875 1 ran for the Assembly and was
elected by a handsome majority in a county
that was Democratic. 1 weut to Sacra
mento with no idea of -hunting a nomina

Colonel -Markljuiu for Governor 1 was so
pleased that I made, .i rush for the second
place. 1 knew it meant an dec. ion. Now

Ex-Governor Perkins was called for, and
stated that during his political career lie
had been culled a great many nurd mums,
but he had never buloru been rcfeired to lib
a "bwluk horse." He hud never been a
farmer or a lawyer, but hud plowed the
ocean and paid tribute all his liie to the
lawyers. He thuu referred to the mag

Colonel Markham as the best, according to
the press, thai had ever assembled in Cali

convention, he was certain could not lail of

CROWING IN FAVOR.
Republican* Will Demand an .Early Con
With the better element of the Republican
party the suggestion to hold au early con
vention is growing steadily in favor, and it
is most likely that at the meeting of the
County Committee, which will be held to
night, it ■will 1 be decided to issue a call
namii/g some day in the present month for
the nomination of a municipal ticket.
Said a prominent Republican yesterday in
discussing the matter: "The results in
Oregon ami Maine seem to indicate that
tins is to be a Republican year. Encouraging
reports are coming in from oil sides, and
with the growing hostility to Buckley and
his disreputable methods, there is no reason
why the .Republicans of ban Francisco,
with the exerciseot a little judgment, should
nut carry tlie city. This can only be done,
however, by the selection of good and trust
worthy men. The public is not in the humor
at prisent to tolerate any of the shady
transactions which have disgraced the city
in the past, an 1 they will demand a ticket
made up of the best material to be- obtained.
There is an abundance of good men for all
the places on the ticket, and if wisdom is
exercistd in the choice a long Campaign will
be a source of strength rather ihau oi weak
ness. A good ticket gains by being scruti
nized, aud that is why there is to-day a de
mand for an curly convention.
Ibis is only one if many similar expres
sions of opinion on ti.e part of the Repub
licans, ami it U bslievtd tliut this sentiment
will induce those having the matter in
charge to batten matters uud place a ticket
early in the held. ■•

The national Guard Taking a Ilaod in
No cell has yet been issued for the meet
ing of the Fourth Congressional Republican
Convention, and Mr. Lloyd has nothing to
say when questioned concerning the mat
ter. General John T. Cutting has been
agreed upon, and his nomination was deemed
reasonably assured, but a new and powerful
factor has entered into the fight, which may
make it necessary to cast about for another
. The mention of his name has aroused the
opposition of the members of the National
Guard, with whom he is not overpqpular,
ami they are making an organized effort to
defeat him for the nomination. The cause
of their hostility is traceable back to his
appointment by Governor Waterman
to the rank of Brigndier-General.
It will be remembered that at that time
the National Guard desired that the place
should be given to Colonel John H. Dickin
son, and Cutting was sent to Sacramento to
plead the former's cause. .Just what oc
curred Is not known, but, at any rate. Cut
ting came back to San Francisco with the
title, and Colonel Dickinson was left out.
This, the Guardsmen claim, has never been
satisfactorily explained, and they aver that,
in addition to this, the General has acted in
a most disagreeable manner, and has antag
onized, not only the officers, but the rank
and tile. " . •
Committees are already at work among
the delegates, and General Cutting's chances
are llab c to grow beautifully less as the
days go by. '
