John Muir, botanist, geologist, traveler
and litterateur, is perhaps batter acquainted
with the Yosemite -Valley than any other
man in California. There is not a spot in
the valley with which he is not familiar.
His acquaintance with the Ycstmite dates
back almost thirty years.
He lived in the valley a long time and
made it the ha*.* ol his operations while
exploring the summits of tbo Sierras, and,
as one of his anmirers said, "he lingered in
the Yosemite until he discovered a divinity

Mr. Muir's article in the Century on Ihe
Yosemite made him an authority on ques
tions affecting tbe valley.
ln "Picturesque California" his pen also
eloquently portrayed the beauties of Cali
f emir's choicest garden spot.
"l_eti. r than man living have I loved this
delightful spot," said Mr. Muir yesterday.

in the valley without any coveri.g. but the

"To what do you attribute this spolia
'•The fringe and polish and ornamental
finish of the valley have been destroyed in
great part," was the answer, "not ma
liciously, but through ignorance and incom
petence. All that is destructible has in
great part been destroyed. The indestruct
ible p*rt of the valley is still there because
tlie cl ; fTs and fails and mountains of the
Yosemite can never be destroyed. But the
delicate tracing of nature's hand, which
cave tone and beauty to the whole, like the
setting to the gem or the frame to the
picture, is no more.
"The marring of this beautiful spot can
be laid to no other cause than the mis
management of the Commissioners who
have n:.d charge of the affairs of the valley.
There can be no question about this mis
management It is too palpable and the
condition of the valley speak, for itself.
Ax and plow and horses have long been and
are still busy in the Ytsemite's gardens and
"All that is accessible and destructible Is
being rapidly destroyed — more rapidly than
in any other valley in the Sierra?, though
this is the only one that is under the special
protection of the Government.
"The greater patt of this destruction of
the fineness of trio wilderness in the valley
is of a kind that can claim no right relation

"In the first place there has been no con
sistency of plan in tha treatment of the
*'The Commissioners have beeu as vacillat
ing and changeable as the moon. One year
it is one thing in the way of alleged im
provement, and another year it is some
thing else before the first undertaking has
been oompletepl. The result is the destruc
tion of the fine picturesqueness of the valley.
"I do not say that the Commissioners have
done these things with the intention to mar
the vsiliey nd destroy its beauties. The
result is due to their incompetence and lack
cf arti «t;c .'acuities.
"Just look bow the 'improvements' are

dinner, wiih wine, they sit OB the veranda

"Forthwith both jobs are done. 'People
should be able to view the falls from the
hotel. 1 will save them trouble.' rays an
other, and the work of clearing away and
destroying the fringe oa tba floor of the val
ley goes on.
"Besides the cows and horses and sheep,
the fires ol campers have also done wanton
destruction, ln tho Yellowstone Park,
which is under the National Government, a
camper who does not put out bis fire is
henvily fined. _
"Mounted patrolmen see that this law is
enforced. The Yosemite Commissioners
have been indifferent on this subject and
considerable ruin from these campers' fires
have been the result.
"What the Commissioners should have
done years ego would have been to have
employed a systematic method of dealing
with improvements in the valley instead ot
changing their plan and policy with each

"Then all this destruction could have
been averted. There can be no intelligent
and DSeful administration of affairs in the
valley unless improvements are directed by
an expert landscape gardener who will see
that a systematic and artistic plan is pur
sued in the work.
"Another instance of the mismanagement
nf the Commissioners," continued Mr. Muir,
"is seen in the way a monopoly controls all
rights and privileges in the valley.
"Horses are allowed to pasture, and trees
ana bushes are cut down at libeity,
"Visitors are fleeced and charged hich

creation of political influences. While this
continues the members will always be in

nature a chance to recoup herself In restor

"You ask how this restoration to the
national Government can be accomplished.
Wei!, there ere two plans which are being
considered. The first one is the iotroduc
lion of a bill in the State Legislature abol
ishing the Yosemite Commission a.d re

oniy held in trust to the Federal Govern
ment. It is hardly thought that this plan
can work this season.
"Another plan is to hold an Investigation
,and produce testimony as to the misman
agement by the Commissioners of the affairs
of the valley. After mismanagement is
proved the idea is to have a bill Introduced
in Congress, declaring that owing to this

violated the trust under 'which she holds

"A^present we have the State managing

be 1 .. ulous. It i«, however, another ar

A large number of Mission properly
owners assessed for the extension of Nine

tieth and Guerrero streets last night and
signed a petition to the Legislature request

under which extension schemes are pro
A. P. Van Duzer presented the draft of a
bill which is to be presented to the Legis
lature as a substitute for the law now in
force., It provides for the laying out. open
ing, extending, widening, straightening or
closing up, in whole or in patt, of any street,
square, lane, alley, court or place within
municipalities, and to condemn and acquire
any and all land and property necessary or
convenient lor that purpose.
"The principe! feature of this proposed
act." said Mr. Van Dozer, in explaining its
provisions, "is that it will repeal the pres
ent law for opening, widening and extend
ing streets, and thus invalidate all proceed
ings had under it and which have not yet
been finished. This act will knock out tho
scheme, of the Supervisors to extend Nine
teenth, Twentieth. Twenty-first, Twenty
second, and Twenty-third streets, for which
you have been assessed.
"In cases, however, where more than one
ball of the lands la any report and plat
proposed to be taken for said streets shall
have been deeded to the city, at the date of
the passage of this ret, then said improve
ments shall not be affected by this act; but
in all other cases the assessment., plats,
and reports filed by the extension commis
sioners are declared to be null and void, and
a.! laws authorizing their collection are
hereby repealed, anil all the moneys col
lected under the previsions of said act shall
be refunded to the persons from whom the
same wero collected, in the same manner as
taxes wblcb have been twice collected, and
the said commissioners are hereby removed
"The bill also." said Mr. Van Duzer,
"provides for tbe appointment of the
Mayor, 'lax Collector and City Attorney as
an auditing hoard to audit the claims of
extension commissioners appointed under
the existing law In order that they might
not lose remuneration for services rendered
Ex-Judge Wheeler addressed the meeting
upon the subject of the law, which, in his
opinion, would have beneficial results. The
preseut law, be declared, is an outrage upon
property-holders and it should have been
repealed long ago.
"Experience has shown to us," said he,
"thai we cannot entrust too much power to
a Board of Supervisors, especially when
certain weighty Influences arc brought to
bear in the interests of corporations as
against the property-owners. The pro
posed law will regulate street extensions so
that the rights of property-owners affected
by improvements will be respected."
The act was unanimously indorsed.
Alfred Clarke then spoke at lengtb upon
the proceedings in the Board of Supervisors
relative to the adoption of the report of t tie
commissioners fir tbe extension of Nine

to the Street Committee of the board which

we came to protest against the wrongs

Mr. Clarke then spoke- of Mayor Elierl's
honesty while serving as a men. of the
Board of Supervisors.

but Taber aud Burling' machinery was too
ell lubricated aud he could not do it. Had

commissioners would not have been "carried
A resolution was then introduced by Mr.
Clarke calling upon the Mayor, ho was re
cently surd in connection with the City, in
in junction proceeding, relative to the Nine
teentb-street extension, to file an answer
admitting the allegations of the complaint
to be true.
Tt;e resolution was not apparently
relished by the majority, who considered
that Mr. Clarke was attempting to use the
property-owners present for his own ad
vancement, he having privately sued the
city for an injunction restraining the Street
Superintendent from collecting the assess
ment* for extending Nineteenth street
Mr. Alt-chul moved that the resolution
be referred to the executive committee,
Mr. Van Duzer staled that the if, solution
should not be adopted, as it would be
ridiculous to request the Mayor to admit
the truth of the allegations made In Mr.
Clarke's complaint, of which he bad no
official knowledge, and with which he had
no more to do than the man In the 1110011.

to many complaints made against the com
mission, filled tbe vacancy created by the
resignation of Mr. Wilson by appointing

Mr. Murdoch is well and favorably known

MUSIC AND FRUIT.
Houses of Oranges Built at
THE FAIR IS A SUCCESS.
Bright Scenes and Astonished Crowds
in the Dig Larkin-Street Build
ing Last Night.
From early in the evening yesterday till
late into the night an immense throng
pressed into the Pavilion.
Such a display as that on exhibition there
now is not to be seen any day, aud people
appear to realiz i it.
Young men were there with their lady
friends, fathers and mothers hud brought
their families, and stray Individuals were
not prevented from coming by fears of being
lquely. The gallery was comfortably filled
by 8 o'clock, and those who had been fortu
nate In securing good places were not hasty
In giving them up.
The crowd was the largest yet seen at the
fair, and was as good-natured and manage
able as such a concourse could well be. It
surged in at the main entrance, 'passed in
astonishment beneath tlie great Placer
County gateway, loitered a moment full of
wonder at Maiyvillo's windmill and Sacra
mento's locomotive, swept to either side of
the bandstand, and met again beside Pa
lermo's Mission, and then stopped breath
less at the foot of Oroville's "Hock of Ages."
It was a magnificent climax to the great
show, but there was no time to delay and
on it piured.
Three hundred and twenty-five private
exhibits remained to be inspected ranged
about the central show and out in the wings
aud back in the machinery display. The
twenty-seventh Industrial Exposition and
World's Fair exhibit, it is safe to say,
could not be properly seen under three full
As the visitor enters ho is Immediately
struck and half-bewildered with the great
glare of yellow and gold before him. Down
a vista of arches and embankment- of the
beautiful fruit he looks for hundreds of feet
and his eye does not stop abort of the Oro
vlile cross at the far end.
Above and below and to either hand
oranges and lemons are heaped and ar
ranged in scores of striking designs without
regard to expense or trouble. A glance at
a few of the most prominent features of the
display will satisfy even the most uncon
cerned that California not only can raise
oranges but can arrange them wondoi fully
well at a fair.
For example there is the gateway at the
very beginning It is a structure twenty
three feet high and sixty feet long. It has
three arches, the center one, under which
you can pass, being fully fifteen feet high.
The toj> is covered with palms and greens
and relieved by various colored electric
It is almost impossible to see any part of
the framework so completely is it covered,
with big golden oranges, There are 50,000
of them. It was built by Placer County.
When once you have pissed ttie gateway
tip your right stands James O'Brien's exhibit
of seedling trances, constructed into the
court and dome of the California State
building at the World's Fair, It Stands 26
feet high. Every detail of the original
building is brought out so far as it is possi
ble. There are the curved roofs and arched
windows and tiny doors, and 20,000 oranges
lied over it all.
Just before the State building are three
odd displays. A bell of seedling oranges
from Wheatland and a modern Eiffel 'Tow
er, and between them is OnStott*S flue ex
hibit of Thompson's seedless raisins.
The windmill from Marysville is built up
of seedling orac_.es. and is provided with
door* of lemons and high revolving wings
of dried figs, apricots and gilded peanut..
The mill is run by an electric motor within
aid pumps up water which ruus down over
a little rocky passage in the garden below
and secures the effect of a waterfall.
In this garden are plants and rocks and
moss, and arranged about them the exhibits
of a number of -Marysville people.
Directly opposite the windmill are banks
of fiult from l'orterviile and before them
stands Sacramento's engine. It is a loco,
motive and tender ef lite size, all made of
oranges and lemons. All the points of the
real engine are there, even to the roadbed
Di rocks strewn with fruit. Lines of lemons
and bright incandescent lights bring out the
molding in better relief. The caboose is
lined with blue, It would make a delight
ful engine for a few weeks' trip.
The Palermo exhibit represents a part of
an old mis-ion. The tower of navel oranges
-in tin's a projecting structure of canned
fruit and lemons. Each arcade is built up
of tiers of fruit.
Just across from Palermo's display Is an
other from Butte County. It is of oranges,
of course. The whole affair l* yellow with
them. It Is a light roof resting ou six
columns. The columns are made up of
large Jars of canned fruit. The top is
decorated with banners.
The beholder might begin to fancy be
had seen It all, but at sight of Oroville's
exhibition his eyes must positively jump.
An immense arch of the leaves of fau
palms surmounted by a star of incandescent
lamps towers forty feet above him. Within
the arch is a superb cross of oranges and
lemons fully fifteen feet in height resting on
a pile of rock*. From the rocks sloping
gently to the floor is a bank of oranges,
tastefully arranged with borders of lemons.
At either side is an orange tree boating
fruit. It Is all arranged at the extreme end
of the room, and the motto, "Ii: of Ages,"
done in oranges above the cross, can be
easily seen from all par's of the house.
The general effect of this display is to im
press the Ix-lvilder with the idea that all the
oranges the wolrd raay[iiecd for years yet to
come can be gotten right here In this Mate.
The remainderof the exposition is equally
elaborate. The fish display is a novelty,
and an interesting one, too. Each tank is
about three feet square, and lighted by vail
ous colored electric lamps.
Cereals of every kind can be seen on ex
hibition, as indeed 60 cnu about every de
velopment of Industrial arts.
From the map. of Caltfrrn.a on the Lar
kin-street side to the furthest piece of
mechanism In the machinery hall, every
thing is complete and wonderful.
The board of directors Is jubilant over the
success "i the b:g undertaking, ami its mem*
bers beam joyfully about, it fleeting as
much brightness as the oranges them

A Petition Presented to Raise Their
The sons and daughters of sunny. Italy
who grind so-called music whence the
harmony has departed from wheezy hand
organs or pump It from decrepld accordions,
whose every sound Is a protest, are about
to meet with what is intended to be a
severe blow at their calling.
The opposition is to come from rather an
unexpected quarter, namely the Italian K>
lief Society, the president of which, T.
Bacisalupl, is at present framing a poiition
to bo presented to the Board of Supervisors
nt their meeting, asking ; that licenses
issued to organ-grinders and .'other street
performers be raised to $300.
The petitioners hope by this means to
make It so expensive to engage In the baud
organ or trained-Lear •business that their
.countrymen,' at least, will be forced to earn
a living by other means.
1 Many. prominent Italians not members of
.the so. lety indorse the . movement, as they
are as tired:' of. having their ears split and'
their ideasof music wrecked by the strains
of "Annie VRooney'" and pother gems of
music as execu'ed by the hand-organ fiend
as any one else. . -
Mr. Baclgalupi, when sought by a Call
reporter last evening, was out, ns was Mr.
C-tlegavte. is also a prominent member
of the association, but: the treasurer, Mr.
Buon Gusto, was found at his place of busi
ness at 824 Broadway, and wben asked for
information regarding the petition said :
"Yes sir, such a petition is being framed
by Mr. Bacigalnpl.".
"What is the object of the potition?" was
asked. ; . y' . ■ . V " yy-yyVV
"The object is to drive our countrymen
from an" occupation that Is both degrading
to themselves and a disgrace to the rest" of
their countiymeii in San Francisco, besides
being a nuisance to every one. ."" -.*
"A few days ago a nx rning paper, in an
article on organ-grinders, stated that there
were a lot of women now on the way from
the East to engage in the business of street
musicians here and that, being women, they
would be better patron than the men,
who now have almost a monopoly of ' the
hand-organ business here, as most of these
people are Italians, bur we want it thor
oughly understood that we are not at all in
sympathy with them.
"Those are some of the reasons why tho
Board of- Supervisors will he petitioned to
raise the license to 8300, and i think that If
the petition is granted there will he com
paratively few who will be able or willing
to pay so much for the privilege of gaining
the little they got, even if they don't have
to work very hard for it.
"We are more opposed to seeing women
engage in such a business than men, and
hope that tho measure will at least keep
women out of the business."

The athletic committee of the Olympic
Club arranged a few more boxing contests
last evening. Among the heavy-weights
signed are M. Sullivan and B. F. Jackson,
W. S. Alman and J. Miller, C. Feldman and
J. Daly, Fred Britten and William Hogan.
The swimming tank was well patronized,
and Professor Huutlngtou attracted much
attention. His new system of teaching the
young idea bow to paddle was considered
first-class. The swimmer's head and
shoulders are beld above water by means of
rubber rings, through which "the kickers
for space" run their arms. Attached to tho
rings is a band which reaches across the
shoulders of the swimmers, and to this is
fastened tho top of a long rod. Tho pro
fessor handles the butt end of the rod from
the "bank," and plays the human fish up
and down the shallows of the tank until
such time as "next" is called.
"Have you ever watched a frog swim?"
asked Sir. Huntington* of a pupil. "Well,
then, you imitate Mr. Frog as closely as
possible and you will go right, as it is a per

Among the many other places of amuse
ment provided by the club for the pleasure
of its members the bowling-alley was
largely patronized. A bowling tournament

bership last month all passed muster with
the exception of three.
The General Sheridan Football Club met
last evening and made arrangements for
a practice match, which will be held ou
Sunday at the liaight-street grounds, pre
paratory to tho game between fcheri-
MM and the O'Briens of Oakland on the
22d iust. The club has now eighty mem
bers, which is the largest, numerically, of
the clubs comprising the Gaelic Association.
The following members were elected last
evening: E. Hill, B. T. Duncan, K.

The professional boxing clubs are puzzled
to devise some scheme by which pool-sell
ing on lights can be knocked in the bead.
Childs, the colored pugilist from Los An
geles, who will meet "boldier" Walker in a
contest to a finish at the Palo Alto Club
this evening, was spptoached by a member
of the "sure-thing" frat.mity of pug-job
bers a few days ago, and offered tempting
inducements to allow Walker to whip him.
The colored heavy-weight, anticipating
what would result should he be a party to a
hippodrome, grew very indignant at the
proposal made him, and informed his visitor
that if he put in an appearance again at the
training station there would be a funeral in
the jobbers' camp.
Tlie latest scheme of "fixers of fights" is
to engage some clever talker who is sup
plied with an abundance of what sporting
men terra "cheek," to visit the puss who
are booked to fight and arrange matters to
suit "the fixers of things." The man who
consummates thedealiu pugs, asitistetmed,
n. 'fives a very hi^h premium in case the
"job" is worked successfully.
A bin was introduced on Tuesday in the
Assembly prohibiting prize- fighting and
boxing matches of ali kinds, if it should
pass and ber-01141 a law the boxing clubs of
this city will have to close up shop.
It is said that the recent scandals con
nected with Jobbing prize-fights was the
cause of the introduction of the bill, which
stand- a very excellent chance of going
through all rich..
