of Eighth street and Broadway.
Great beads of perspiration stood out on

The members of the Board of Supervisor*
have drawn the law down on their heads in
a manner that is liable to cause them some
trouble. It will be remembered mat the

and, barring one faulty one, the bid of Bige

contract was awarded, the bid of this firm
was ignored and I. 11. McGrew of East
Oakland secured the contract. Now Bige
low & Little have had the Supervisors
made defendants in an action for a writ of

James Vance, steward of the Athenian
Club, has been arrested on a charge of vio
lating the liquor license ordinance, and the
case will come up in the Police Court this
morning. This was for the purpose of mak
ing a test (use of the ordinance, which re
quires chilis to takeout a salcon licence.
The clubmen assert that their club is their
home, and, therefore, they should not lie re
quired to pay a liquor license. If necessary
Urn case will" go to the Supreme Court.

point 220 feet south; in Mulberry street,
from Boena Vista to Clement avenues; iv
Ninth (McPheison) street, from Kings
avenue to a point L'liO feet south; macadam
izing Taylor avenue, between Ninth and
Eleventh streets, and the southerly portion
of Eighteenth (union) street.
The improvement of High street, which
connects this city with the country, has oc
casioned considerable discussion. Some of
the property-owners desire it improved from
Washington slieet to the tidal canal, while
others i-tienuoiisly object, and give ns their
reason that in a year or two the tidal canal
excavation will reach High street, and it
will then be closed lor many years. Tho
Cohen estate is especially desirous of having
the macadamizing stop at the water works
property, and. if the other side gives in, will
open Santa Clara avenue to High street.
This latter improvement is veiy desirable,
aud such a compromise may be ofl'ec;ed.

At the trial of William Cunniff in Jersey
City on the charge of murdering his wife,
a piliful scptm was witnessed. The latches
that held the folding doors were noisily
drawn, and through the opening six men
carried in a form on a stretcher, it was that
ol" John Synir.tt, the aged father of the
dead wife, who had Deen himself severely
burned at the time Mrs. Cunniff wa9 set

him up through the aisle and gently plactd

while County I'hysician Converse examined
the old man to see if he could bear the physi

and then concealed his face beneath a liand

on the tragic occasion. lie alleges that he
Buffered nls iujurv while trying to save his
wife's life, but District Attorney Winuejd
declares that lie seized his wife, not to save
her, but to detain her from raising an alarm
orsfeking rescue, and that h« so doubly con
tributed to her death. The old man was
finally raised by four stalwart men to a
chair and then he testiliPil for tho State. Ho
lived with Cunniff aud his daughter, he said,
and had fiequi-ntly seen the hu*bnnd bru
tally assault the woman, nnd on several oc
casions threaten to brain her with a club.
His habitual ill-treatment culminated on
the evening oi Sunday, September 7th, when
tiie couple quarreled ov.T a tn lie of money
the woman had reserved from her own
earnings for her agiul father's u>e. Cuniiiff
seiz-fd her by the h.iir and, pressing
her to a window, thrust her head through a
pane of glass. The quarrel was kept up,
and, in the heat of rage, Cunuiff-seized the
lighted lamp from the bureau aud hurled it
at the woman. The glass broke into frag
ments against tlie fireboard and the wite a
garments were sprinkled with a spray of
llame. All ablaze, she attempted to rush
from the room, when her husband seizssi her
and held her. She finally broke away and
tied to the stieet. When she reached tho
cobbler's shop in the basement every stitch
of clothing hud b«eu burned from her l>ody
and sue fell, nude, at tlie cobbler's feet.
She suffered indescribable agony till death
relieved her the following day. One of tho
features of the case is that the suffering
woman, after she had been set ablaze,
shielded her husband, and declared with her
last breath that she did uot know how she
had coma by her injuries. — Chicago Herald.

plained to a reporter. "My lungs were affected, and
bailly affected, anil my nervous system wai shat-
tered. I could not sleep well at night and had no
appetite. 1 was as weak as a child, and under sucn
circumstances was unable to work. 1 spent consid-
erable money on patent remodles. and then ex.
haunted the rest of my savings In paying doctors'
bills. Yes, I have hart some of the best physicians
In San Francisco, but they did mo no good. I was
thoroughly disheartened and discouraged, and as a
lait rcsourcecal led at the Cosmopolitan Dispensary.
The medicines they gave me itld me more good la
one week than all the doctors had done In three
years. 1 have every reason to believe they will er.

pay them for the great good they Have done roe."
