Committee rooms, Louis Me! zger presiding.
T. G. Reilly, 15. N. de Leon, August Stancen
bergi v ..;.ii Alfred Ciiaigutau were elected
braves.
J. C. Ruddock, First Vice-President of the
club, tendered his resignation as nu officer
on account of having been nominated for
Superintendent of Public Schools. On mo
tirn be matter was laid over for two weeks.
Upon invitation Mr. Ruddock harangued
the assembly on the progress in the educa
tion of pappooses, introducing at a favor
able moment some remarks upon his Ciuess
for li ling the office to which he aspires.
Charles L. Weller, a candidate for Dis
trict Attorney, made a brief speech, in
which he denounced the Reform Democrats
as dastards, and woikid iff considerable,
spleen by asserting that there are 1100
Republicans in this city who are sharpening
their knives for use on their own tickets.
Sam McKee discovered himself as an elo
quent young brave who could warm the blood
of the eld braves in the councils. lie threw
out a ;:o:i from beneath hi- scalp-lock that
protection to industries did not protect
mechanics and laborers, and he advised the
scalping of Reed and McKlnley. His oration
was received with stomach grunts.
Clitus Barbour followed with another
■lifting harangue. He had just ar
rived on the north wind from the upper
countries, but he. had no semblance to the
ardent wooer of Miunehaha. lie reported
upou the effects of the campaign in the
north, and regretted that upon in-, return he
still found that the Split in the Democratic
party had not been bridged. lie said he
feared no serious results from the dissen
. sion in tins campaign, but would be sorry to
have it in existence when the Presidential
contest commences two years from now.
Several other speeches were maUe and the

An address was made by Mr. Cntor, after
which the wacon proceeded t» the corner of
Sixth and Folsoiu streets, where speeches
were made by the candidates mentioned.
There was a meeting of all the Reform
Democratic nominees at th« headquarters of
the arty In the Arcade Building last night.
Tlie «iI>JHPt of the meeting was to select men
to distribute ballots at the polls and guard :
the interests of the party during the coming
election. Information was received last
nichl that Buckley intends to cause, his
"lambs" to <!o soiim "line" work in destroy
ing tickets and stuffing ballot-boxes in cer
tain districts south of Market street. So the
reformers propose to have sufficient men on
duty to guard their interests against overt
acts on the part of Buckley's armed bruis
ers. The police will also be asked to afford
nor.- protection than is usually accorded,
and a large number of specials will proba
bly be sworn in for that purpose.
The County Committee meets to-night to
consider various matters of importance to
the party.
IN THE PIIECINCIS.
The Pern I clous I'rnciire of the Foor-liox
llfpilrrectecl*
This is the last day of precinct registra
tion, nnd all citizens who are not already en
rolled on the great register should bear in
mind tl>at their neglect will cost them their
voles if they let this day slip.
The work in the precincts yesterday was
completely uneventful. Jn reviewing the
certificates from the precincts many curious
and amusing mistaKes are discovered, but
they are harmless In character ami will cut
little figure i.i the result. For instance, fol
lowing :tie a few samples of llm way the
examination of applicants is conducted in
some places :

The question that comes up every election
about the right nf sailors to register has
again been raised. The law on tint point
reads:
For the purpose nt voting no person ?liall be
deemed to Lave gained or lost a residence by
reason of his presence or ;ib?ene-- while cm
rlo>ed In the service of Hie United States, nor
Willie engaged In He navigation of the waters ot
tills State or of the United States or of the high
seas.
It is still an unsettled question whether a
Bailor or any one in like position returning
to the city after registration has closed
shall be allowed to register and vote. Two
years Rgo the Election Commission allowed
such sons to vote if they could prove that
tin it absence was unavoidable.
Many complaints reached the Registrar
about precinct officers shutting up their
polling-places for an hour or two at noon
and evening to go to lunch. Such practice
is in open violation of the law, and orders
were at one issued to stop it, under penalty
of arrest. The offices must be kept open
from 9 o'clock in the morning till 10 o'clock
at night, continuously.
Serious complaint has a!sr> been made
against another practice— not exactly un
lawful, but certainly outrageous— namely,
the resurrection nf the "poor-box." It was
stated in the central office yesterday that in
five out of every six precincts In tie city this
abominable system of petty extortion is be
ing practiced. Where it originated no one
seems to ku;.w, but under the circumstan
there is not a particle of doubt aj>s~ui, its
objectionable character.
Fur years voters have Iven asked at the
polls to drop a tew ■ .uU in a slot m a cigar
box lid; ccr.o33 the to: of which v.ms printed
in bold letters "Poor Box." It was in
tended to carry the impression, of course,
that tho contributions were to be given to
the poor, and perhaps originally that was
the purpose. But the g od cause has now
become disgustingly perverted, and instead
of the money going to the poor, it Is used by
the precinct officers to buy beer aud cuck
tails with.
They now regard it as a clever dodge to
procure beer and whisky free, and with, tlie
effrontery of a brass monkey call upon all
who approached the polls to give. Many
hundreds unsuspectingly yield a dime or
two, others give because they are ashamed
to be thought small and the aggregate often
amounts to considerable. The practice will
be frowned upon by the authorities, and all
citizens cautioned not to be swindled by the
scheme. v :'■' ■■-". ■ - ■"■
BUCKLEY DEMOCRATS.
William Henderson Decliues to Kan fur
rTifor.
One third of the Democratic County Com
mittee was present last evening when Chair
man John Dougherty called the meeting to
order and very few additional members
put in an appearance later on.
The business as usual was rushed through
with the promptness and dispatch for which
Buckley assemblages have become famous;
very little. being accomplished until an
executive session was deemed necessary.
Mr. Tracy reported that the Finance
Committee was "going ahead actively,"
and meetings were being held every after
noon for the purpose of edding to the fund?
of the party, lie. urged the members to
" ; tit in an" appearance and assist in the
good work."
The first bombshell was exploded when
the declination of William Henderson, the
nomine' f<.r Supervisor of the sixth Ward,
«as presented. It is as follows:
While extremely obliged to yon and the dele
pates to Hie convention for the nomination ten
dered me lor the oflice of W»D€l Vhfor ol the Sixth
Ward, I feel mysell oWtfced to hereby advise you
of my Inability to accept me same owing to my
private bus '■„•»?, which would prevent me from
lulfillln" „,>• official duties If elected. 1 assure
you 1 ieel sorry I have to decline, hut 1 must do
H under the clicum«taiicr* stated, I remain,
yours respectfully, William H END BUS >X,
1014 Powell street.
The resignation was accepted and John
Wolff of the lirin of Wolff, Jones & Co. was
nominated in his stead.
Garratt McEnerney of the Democratic
State Central Committee stated that he bad
conferred with the Republican State Central
Committee regarding the nomination of a
Superior Judge to till the short term made
vacant by the resignation of ,1. F. Sullivan.
It was decided that M. S. Iloran should be
placed in nomination. The Republicans
will aho nominate a candidate for the posi
tion. Mr. McEnerny stated further that
Governor Waterman had, in bis election
proclamation, neglected to inform the citi
zens of the State that they would 1)0 called
upon to vote en the amendment to the con
stitution proposed by the Legislature, grant
ing a freeholders' charter to cities having a
population of 3500 inhabitants, it was,
therefore, determined to place on the ballots
the words: "For Amendment to Section
8. Article XI of the Constitution." The
meeting then went into executive session.
Outsiders beinu excluded the committee,
of course, enjoyed a "go-as-you-please" ses
sion. A motion was made to have the 310
precinct captains sworn in as County Com
niitteenien for thirty day?, and also that the
list bo presented for revision to the County
Committee. There was an immediate
"howl," inasmuch as the majority present
seemed to think their friends who had been
appointed precinct captains would be
quietly dropped if not satisfactory to the
"boss."- After a lengthy discussion the
matter was laid over until Monday evening,
when the precinct captains will be invited
to attend.

doubtedly follow this course. When seen
by a Call repoiter yesterday, Mr. McKab
staled that he was simply waiting to satisfy
himself as to whether his business would
permit of his accepting the nomination at
the bands of the Democratic party.
" I feel quite positive of electii v, said ho,
"but 1 am afraid my time! will not permit
mo to discharge the Supervisorial duties as
they should be. As yet 1 have not resigned,
nor can I stale positively what I intend
doing in the matter. 1 will decide the mat
ter within a few days, in order to give the
Democratic County Committee an opportu
nity to make another nomination in case I
should decide to draw out."
i;ll.l> FOB ADVERTISING.
The Election Commissioners Amazed at
Their Bam Totnl.
Registrar Smiley surprised the Election
Commissioners yesterday when lie informed
them that the advertising l>il!s of the many
newspapers patronized by the, commission
for the campaign amounted to several
thousand dollars. The Impulse to retrench
was born in the heart of each Commissioner
Hint very instant, and they at once began fig
uring how to reduce expenses. Tho next
heavy item in the line of advertising will he
the Governor's proclamation, and the com
mission has about decided to publish it in
only a few papers. The bills were all re
ferred to the Registrar to be experted, and
some one familiar with newspaper adver
tising will be employed to examine them,
and unreasonable charges will probably be
cut down after the election.

Sizing Up the Fight.
"I never saw a prettier fight than the Re
publicans are making this campaign," a
well-known business man remarked to a
reporter of The Cam. yesterday. "It is a
steady, determined and a winning fight, and
will be aided considerably on the -Ith by
scattering votes from the respectable anil
Intelligent element of the Democratic party.
"Buckley's Democrats are accusing Pond's
frigid mannerisms for the weakness in their
fisnt. The Reform Democrats vindicate
their bolt by the corruption of bossism and
hatred of Buckley. 1 cannot conceive bow
the Democrats can have the faintest hopes
for success. They are without proper or
ganization. They are divided among them
selves, and their fall is inevitable."

American Independent Club was held last

hundred people witnessed at the Emery
grounds yesteiday. The hitting was not
heavy but what " safe shots " were secured
were all sharp line drives, while the fielding
was generally clever and brisk. - r, '■.'..
The Senators excelled in the latter de
partment, two of their three errors, which
are credited to Reitz, being made on very
difficult chances and did not figure in the
run-netliug. A most noteworthy feature
was Godar's superb catch of I>ooley's tie
innidoiis drive in the sixth inning, and
which Dearly carried him off his feet.
Stapleton also made a magnificent catch of
a difficult foul fly in the second inning.
The Colonels hud the diminutive, fidgety
"rag-chewer," Sammy Shaw, In the box,
who went through all bis customary unique
and disagreeable antics. As usual he sulked
and growled throughout the entire game
because IT Dire Donahue could not for his
special benefit imagine the plate to be three
feet square and call every ball, high or low,
wide or in, a strike.* lv the second inning
be completely lost his equilibrium and sent
four men to bases ou balls, two of whom
scored.
Hoffman, on the other hand, pitched good
steady ball, keeping the sphere over the
plate inning after iuuing, aud relying on his
itatn lor success.
Contrary to their usual custom, the
Colonels took last innings. In the first
neither side scored. Through Ward's strik
ing out, two of the Sacrauientoa were left
on bases, and the Oakland* had two men
forced out at second.
in the next inniu;: Godar, first man up for
Sacramento, was struck out. Then Mciiale,
liiitz and i I nun were each given their
base, on balls in succession Goodenough's
weak hit to McDonald forced Sleliale at the
plate, but still the bases were full. Kobcrts
Chen smashed out a beauty to right, lt?ltz
and Hoffman scoring. l.ohiuan failed to
stop Duugau's throw in, and the ball bound
ing ir.to Hie side bleachers, enabled Good
enough and Itoberts to tally. Bowman was
also given his base, but was forced at second
on Stapleton's grounder to McDonald.
in tho Oakland*' half of the. second Charley
O'Neill was hit by a pitched ball, took sec
ond on McDonald's sacrifice, aud his over
running third on Tip O'Neill's sacrifice
tempted Bowman to throw to Godar. The
throw, however, was high and Texas scored.
In llie fifth the Senators tagged on another
to their lour. Bowman led oil with a single
to center and Stapleton shot a stiff onedovvn
to McDonald, who erred. Ward hit to
Doolev, who threw Stapleton out at second,
Bowman traveling to third. Ward then at
tempted to steal second, and while he was
being chased up and down the line Bowman
scampered home.
The ninth added another to their score.
Goodenough sprinted to first on his hard hit
to Tip O'JSeil, who let the ball get away
from Him. Bowman was awarded his base
on balls and each man moved up a bag on a
passed ball. On O'Nell's erior to hold
Lohman's throw Goodenoimh scored, having
made his first and last base ou O'Nell's
two errors.
The Colonels played desperately all
through and made a .strong up-hill fight, In
the eighth Cantillion's recklessness list
them a run. Shaw, who led oil with a hit,
was forced at second by "Cunt's" hit to
Godar, Dooley hit safely and both he and
the second baseman made a neat double
steal. Sweeney cot his base on balls, tilling
the cushions. Dungan then lifted one out
to center, which Goodenough captured.
Ciintillion made for the plate aud had to all
appearances scored, but he had not escaped
the watchful eyes of Bowman and Donahue.
The catcher immediately on receiving
Goodenouah's throw to?!ted the ball to
(ii dar, and Douohuc declared Cantillion out
lor leaving the bag before Dungan's lly was
caught.
'1 heir last chance was in the ninth, and
they managed to get two men over the plate.
Lol loan took Ins first on balls and C.
O'Neill reached there the second time by
being hit. McDonald flew to Mellale, and
the same player by a rapid field threw X.
O'Xeil out at the initial, which hit, however,
advanced Lehman and C. O'Neill a base.
Shaw's safely to renter., scored both men.
Ciiiitilii; ended the game by Keitz captur

AbaudoDeil lMlulne Shafts That Are n
Mennce to i.if<-.
There are a lot of old and nbandoned
mining shafts about Folsnm, and they have
caused many accidents since the winter of
Mil and the spring of '50. Last Sunday a
teamster was driving a six-horse team a
short distance from Potsom, and in turning
out of the road he drove over one of these
old shafts that was hid from view by a little
brush, and two of his hnrses went into it,
going down some twenty feet to the bottom.
It has been a source of wonder to many
persons why the Road Overseers and Super
visors have permitted ihese death-traps to
remain so long, endangering tlio lives of
men and teams that have to travel in that
vicinity. There nre scores of Chinamen
now mining in that vicinity, and it should
be the duty of some person to sen that they
do not leave their shafts uncovered.—Sacra

A Da; GiTen to the Kntertalnment of
Little Ones.
Two spectacles of more than common in
terest attracted the attendance of visitors at
the fair yesterday afternoon. One was the
Ladies' Protection and Relief Society with
its wards, who were accorded the freedom
of the place and took wonderful Interest in
the dazzling display that surrounded them.
The other was the Little Sisters' lnfant
Shelter. .
Perhaps no institution has visited the fair
that excitPd more interest than this. The
Infant Shelter was organized for the benefit
of poor mothers who have to go out and
work for a living and cannot take their chil
dren with them. For a very trifling sum
they can leave them at the shelter, where
they are well eared for, and on their return
from labor t:ike them home. The institution
has Income wonderlully popular, and sel
dom a day passes that a goodly flock of little
ones is not left in its care. Yesterday they
were given the benefit of the sights of the
fair, and few who saw their keen enjoy
ment were not touched with a feeling of
tenderness.
To-day there will be an excursion on the
Donahue railroad from Ukiah and way
stations, giving as many as like in Sonoma
and upper counties the chance to spend five
or six hours among the exhibits of Western
industries. Probably a like train will be
run on the coast division of the South Pacific
Const some day next week, giving the resi
dents of Monterey, Santa Cruz and other
points a day in the Pavilion. Following is
the musical programme for to-day:

this great city have already contributed so
much toward the success of our movement
in Sid of the homeless boys that 1 think we
ought to take gieat pleasure iv paying them
thu lull amount of their bills. For my own
part I do not in this ease favor rebate or
reduction." It was then voted that the

and all the other bills were passed ou

Through reading dime novels Johnnie
Mlskel, a lad of 13 years of age, has got him
self iuto tho bands of the police authorities.
Yesterday Johnnie was committed to tlie
Industrial School by Judgo Lawler. The
prospect of years in this cheerless institu
tion terrified the boy into a lit of bitter cry
ing and remorse, and now the romance he
.-aw in crime has entirely vanished from
his mind.
Johnnie resolved about three weeks ago
to become a real burglar and assume un
speakable contempt for the good young boys
Who remained at homo and obeyed their
patents. He entered the house of Louis
Dunand, corner of Twenty-fourth and
Chattanooga streets, and stole therefrom
£83. With the money be went on a trip to
the country, taking in San Jose, Sacramento
Mid Santa Cruz, stopping at the best hotels
an« enjoying liimseli niter the fashion of his
imaginary robber heroes.
But nt last he grew weary of Ihe lifo of a
young highwayman, and .-ays he will reform.
This erratic youth asked bis sister for some
money about a year ago, and being refused
drew a pistol and lived IWo fchcts at her. Ho
was arrested but a Police Judge sent him
home ou that occasion.

Even good In this world cannot he done with

we could do the best even without effort. To

use the arguments which Influence our own

humanity should be relieved promptly and per

only one as the best. There is no questioning
