The members of the local Agents'
Association were greatly surprised yesterday
when it was announced that the order from
the Southern Pacific Company issued sev
eral months since, but rescinded, and re
stricting the sale of tickets, had been re
issued from the office of the General Fass
enser Agent of the company. The order
referred to was rescinded when tne late
agreement was entered . into by the
ticket agent?, and its reissmnce is
looked upon by the association as an
_ admission on the part of the Southern
Pacific Company that the late contract is
no longer binding. A meeting of the gen
eral agents of all the Eastern railroads
■ represented in San Francisco was held yes
terday to protest against such action on the
part of the Southern Pacific Company, and
to inquire into the causes for again issuing
the obnoxious order. T. K. Stateler of the
Northern Pacific, William Bedell of the
Pennsylvania lines, and C. C. Craineof the
Vandcrbilt system have been appointed
a committee to wait upon the Gen
eral Passenger Agent of the Southern
Pacific Company and ascertain, if pos
sible, the source of the company's au
thority to control the agents of Eastern
roads by regulating all affairs pertaining to

most good feeling prevailed, and although
the large audience went home with probably
the same opinions they had when they
cnine each speaker was loudly encored, and
the affair was heartily enjoyed.
The returns came in very slowly, keeping
th' so interested on tenterhooks of sus

tickets probably accounts for that, and per

was not thoroughly understood. Here in

The county ticket is about evenly divided
as to Republicans and Democrats. Judge
Dougherty, Superior Court (R.), District

their respective positions. The campaign
in this part of the county has !>een marked
by good feeling with but one exception ; but
(here has been very earnest work done, and
net a little, wire-pulling and swapping. Fur
thermore, never in the history of the county
i has there been so much scratching done,
and principally by the Republican party,
for county candidates. One peculiar fact
was noticed— in some cases a name was
badly scratched aud his opponent was also
scratched, so that in fact if the straight
ticket had been voted by both parties the
result would have been the same. But the
suspense is over, good - men have been
elected, and others equally as good have

" FKL'IT-PESI' EXTERMINATION.'
Something in Regard to the Effective
'Work in tin Al < inert a Count* School.
' -Editor Murninu Call: An all-engrossing
topic in this section this fall is fruit pests
their nature and extermination. Owing to
j the importance of the subject aud its direct
bearing upon the leading industry of this
section, there was a general feeling of satis
faction a:i ong our people when it was de
creed that entomology should hereafter be
one of tin regular topics for study in the
Schools ot Alameda County. P. M. Fisher,
our devoted.* County Superintendent of
Schools, prepared lor this purpose (i small
work on the subject, which is now used as a
text-book in the schools, a purpose which it
serves admirably, llefe iv Centrevillp
there exists a peculiar need for some such
work in our school, owing to the
fact of our large foreign population. In our
school fill 95 per cent ol the pupils hear no
English si oken nt borne. Their parents are
Portuguese, thrifty and industrious, but, not
speaking our language, they naturally
enough take no horticultural journals and
come very little in contact with our best
infurmed orcbardists. As a consequence, it
js in the orchards of this Class thai the ft nil
pests most do nourish without hindrance or
application of the best-known remedies for
their extermination. - L , -
The presence of these Infested orchards in
the midst of an orchard section is a constant
menace to all. Therefore, when the require
ment was made that entomology should be
taught in our public school*, the local School
Board determined that it should be effec
tively done; that the children .should be
made thoroughly to understand the need of
proceeding energetically against the- fruit
pests, and instructed to tell their parents at
home what they themselves were taught at
school upon the subject. An apter illustra
tion of the practical workings of that safe
guard of our Government, the public school,
it would be difficult to find.
For use in the school the Trustees have
provided a powerful microscope and suitable
apparatus, and fortunately for the complete
success of th« project the principal, Profes
sor Leslie A. Jordan, an ellieient teacher
and 11 newspaper man in this State, has
proved an enthusiastic coadjutor in the
witfk. ■---* .
Under Mr. Jordan's instruction the chil
dren have proved interested and intelligent
pupils, eagerly co-operating with him in tlie
dissemination of knowledge upon the sub
ject, bringing infected branches from the
orchards and carrying home implicit direc
tions for dealing with the destroyer. ■
The greater part of the present term has
been devoted to studying the habits and
treatment of the brown apricot scale, which
has been, fur some lime past, a dangerous
menace to the orchards of this vicinity.
There has been a constant effort among our
advam-ed horticulturists to eradicate this
pest, but early this season the minute brown
scales were to be seen in appalling numbers,
lying along the brandies, all ready, in due
course of time, to send forth tneir lilies
upon a work of devastation. Une of these
scales, when placed under the microscope
(about 500 power) may be seen to be filled
with myriads of minute insects. invisible to
the naked eye, but active, hungry fellows,
nevertheless, who live upon the juice.-) of
the tree and thin drain its very life.
In instructing tho children as to the best
means of exterminating this scale- l'role->sor
.lonian has had the able CO-ooeratiofi of Mr.
\Villr-«ni Barry, the resident Horticultural
CommissiU' er, who has hud a large experi
ence with this particular tree foe. A year
ngo the scale beset his peach trets to such an
extent that the life of his line orchard wits
threatened. His neighbors and orchardists
throughout this section had tried spraying
and washes ad intiuiium, but witli pour suc
cess, as, in must instances they either in
jured the trees by tue severity of applica
tions used, or, fearini; this result, they went
to the opposite extreme and used remedies so
mild as to have uo eliuct whatever upon the
Mr. Barry, however, went into the subject
with thoroughness and has reduced the mat
ter to a science. The result of his investi
gation aud experimentation he has summed
up as follows, your correspondent being in
debted both to him and to l'rofesuor Jordan
for the summary: Formuhe— No. 1 (from
state Expert Klce), % pounds caustic soda,
J4 pound caustic p t ah, 4 gallons water.
No. 2 (variation bj Air. Barry), % pound
caustic tjoda, % pound caustic potash, 4 gal
lons water, ihe main ingredient in these
preparations Mr. Barry lound to be the caus
tic soda, the caustic potass serving mainly to
maintain the liquiuesceuce aud prolong its
ellieai y, thu proportions to be used being
regulated by the weather. On dry, hot days
tou little potash causes the wash to change
to powder immediately upon application,
tbe effect being thus lost. A little observa
tion will enable me orchardist to Kaugo pt»
puitions to a nicety. If the. etl'ect is fatal to
the insect it will be shown in twenty-lour
hours by a shriveling of the scale aud dark
ening of tue color.
After consideiable experimentation Mr.
Barry settled upon Hie following variation
of lormula No. las the most efllcucious uiid
generally applicable: % pound caustic
soda, % pound caustic potash, 4 gallons
These remedies are effective on all scales
on all deciduous trees. For evergreens,
however, they are too severe, destroying
the leaves. Whale-oil remedies should be
used for them.
From las own experience Mr. Barry
evolves the following rules:
1. Dun't spare wash or labor. The greatest
■ ui-iiikn 13 to attempt 100 muc:i wuliiu a giveu
2. Attack Ihe least infected part or the orchard

This pest is called the Apricot Scale, but
the experience of orehardists hereabouts is
that it inlects the peach tree with equal
readiness ..m results fully as disastrous. -
It is bound to yield, however, to the above
treatment. Mr. Barry used 4000 gallons on
his orchard, at a cost of about Sjso for chem
icals. Fully three-fourths uf the scales were
destroyed, and the prospect is for their com
plete eradication this year.
There is a good dial of spraying being
dune now, and orcharding are very hopeful
a* to results. This is a pioneer fruit section
and city dealers claim— at least, to thai

that reaches the city. This may be llattery,
but out here we are inclined 10 the belief
that it i* merely a just appreciation of merit.

Inter, and It is necessary to spray
several times during that time to
keep them in check at all. As it has only
been nbout four years since the pest has ap
peared in this section, fanners are still ex
perimenting as to the best washes to be
used. There are three recipes used, the one
most in favor being so powerful as to burn
the clothing and skin terribly, making it
necessary for the operator to deck himself
out much like a highwayman — in old clothes
heavy boots, rubber gloves and mask— and
still he suffers, for the spray is so line aud
powerful it finds its way into every crack
and crevice, and eats the skin off, and yet it
is not a success iv killing the scale, and the
question is still unanswered as to the very
best manner of eradicating them.
