TROTTING INTERESTS.
Outlook for a Groat Stallion Race Here
Next Summer.
Secretary Smith Says the Board of Ag
riculture Will Probably Provide
a Good Pane Therefor.
In conversation with Edwin F. Smith,
Secretary of the Stato Agricultural So
ciety, upon tlie outlook for the live stock
interests in California, he remarked to a
Recobd-Ujjiox reporter that more zeal
had been shown witiiin the past few
years in the improvement of breeding
than ever before in the history of the
State.
"There is not a week passes," said he,
"that does not find ono or two Eastern
buyers visiting our leading stock farm
ers. The. recent impetus given the breed
ing of trotters in California lias caused
many to seek Investment in the dan of
Block here produced, as tliey look upon
our colts as phenomenal in point of
early development, This, you must
know, ia quiti unessential point in trot
inghtfrses ol the present day," as, with
the average American, time is moneyr 1
and, to not be compelled to wp.it until
one is gray in the business before a per
former is high on the way to success,
■peaks volumes for the judgment of our
breeders, and the feed and climate here
attainable."
Speaking for tho Society, Mr. Smith
eni'i that the members of the Board of
Directors are at all times anxious to take
the Initiative in any movement that
woald tend to advance California's pro
ductive interests, be It cereals; agricult
ural machinery, fruit-growing, or ii\<
stock. Xhe Society is looked upon as the
fether of the latter interest, more par
ticularly, hut in so doing it has not ig
nored oilier industries beneficial tothe
State that came under its car;-.
"Recognizingthe great advance made
In tho breeding of trotters in California
during the past few years," said Mr.
Smith, "the Directors are contemplating
the announcement of a grand stallion
trotting purse for the State Fair of 1691.
It will he remembered that the furl one
of these great events given in California,
since any attention worth Bpcaking of bas
been given the breeding of trotters, was
held under the management of tho State
Society in 1888. Jn that contest tho start
ers wexe Woodnut (2:161), Guy Wilkes
(2:151) and Stambonl (2:11.) Subsequent
to ihi-: race —which gave Wbodnuthis rec
ord, and the prominence that attracted
the attention of the country to him—his
sale was accomplished for $20,000, stam
bouFs for $50,tiu0, and it wan understood
tbat Mr. Corbitt refused a like amount
for (any Wilkes. That this race was
cf great value to tho interest
named, there can bo no doubt, and it was
accomplished through the agency of an
institutiofi fostered t>y the
State. Hence tbey "eel that it is about
time to encourage the Introduction to the
public of some of the coming voting
Btock, thai their qualification for pre
eminonce and value, may arouse a dis
enssiou that will end In other important
tali's of the contestants. It has, there
fore, been thought expedient to offer a
grand stallion purse of from 83,000 to
95,000, to be contested forby California
Stallions. The entrance would be fixed
at a rate acceptable to all, and the pay
ments made by installments, so as uot to
distress any breeder that may desire to
name Ids horse before the brt c bug season
opens."
"What would there be to start in such a
race as this?"
"The starters," replied Secretary
Smith, "would be Simmocolon (2:111),
Moses s. (2:191), Alfred G. (2:iaj), Begat
Wilkes(2:l7l), Direct #U81), Silas Skin
ner (2:19), Charles Derby (2:20), Washing
ton (230), Redwood (£211), and Mount
Vernon (2821). And there are many
others that would probably enter and
take a shy at tiie coveted prize. * Tiie re
are really a largo number capable of
Joining forces v.itb these named, and
such an event would serve to bring them
oat—perhaps to fortune and to feme."
WITNESS FEES.
The County Xot Liable Therefor ln the
Boycott Csoo.
In Department One of the Superior
Court an order was made last week by*
Judge Armstrong directing the County
Auditor to draw a warrant against the
county in favor of V. s. McClatchy for
?147 75 in payment of the fees of wit
nesses in the boycott case of McClatchy
vs. (i. W. McKay and others.
Grovel.. Johnson, counsel for the de
fendants, entered a protest against such
action, and Auditor Johnson concluded
not to draw the warrant until he had laid
the matter before the District Attorney.
Yesterday Mr. Ryan rendered the follow
ing opinion in the matter:
Frank T. Johnson, County Auditor —Dear
Bis: iv reply to your official inquiry, tne
same involving the question whether ii is
vow duty to draw a warrant upon tin i -<■-, uty
Treasury for tho sum of $147 75, payable to
V. S. McClatchy, said sum to be by him dis
bursed to I). Luhln, C. H. Oilman, K. W. Hale
and others for apenses ;i- witnesses in at
tending the contempt proceedings in tbe su
perioaa tourt ot this county entitled Charlotte
McClatchy et al. vs. G.W. McKay itu!., and
tbe further gum of ?lii lj for Constables
fees in said praeeedings, you having been dl
<;ii< ted to draw said wat'iant ln pursuance of
an order made in said cause by the then Su
perior Judge J. W. Armstrong, on the 3d day
of January, 1881,1 respectfully submit that
Baid order does not warrant the drawing of
th warrant for tin following reasons:
Section 1320 of tlie Penal Oode provides as
follows: - Winn a person attends before a
magistrate, wand jury, or court, us a witness
in ii criminal case, upon a subpena or in pur
suanceofan undertaking,and it appears that
he lms come from a place outside of tneoounty,
or that ne is poor and unable to pay tbe ex
pt ir- of such attendance, tne Court, at its dis
cretion, if the attendance of tbo witness be
upon a trial, bj an order upon its minutes, or
in any other case, tbe Judge at I-.is discretion.
by S written order may direct the County
Auditor to drew his warrant upon the < Sounty
■j :rei'in tuvoi-of witnesses for a reasona
ble sum to be specified in the ordar, for the
-ary expenses of the witnesses."
dearly under tbe above section t'-c Consta
ble charge is no valid claim against the
county. Neither the order In question nor
the minutes of the court show mat the wit
nesses named therein came from a place out
side <>t'tbis county, or were poor and unablato
pay ti.i . • expenses in atteiMti.lt said proceed
ing assuch witnesses. In tho absence of such
abowtug i am of ;;■•• opinion tbat the order in
question is insufficient to justify you in draw
ing said warrant.

POLICE DEPARTMENT.
Chief Dr,ew Directs Attention to Some
of Its Pressing Needs.
Necessity for an Increased Forco of
Men and an Emcrsoufry Fnnd—
Patrol Wajjon—Arrests.
At the request of tho Record-Uxiox,
Chief of Police Warren F. Drew has pre
pared tlie following review of tho con
dition of the Police Department of tho
city. It includes such recommendations
as ho deems necessary for the improve
ment of the present police system. Ho
says:
The fact that our present force is nu
merically insufficient to discharge tho
constantly increasing amount of service
required, is too well known to call for
any argument. The matter lias so often
been referred to by my predecessor, Cap
tain Lee, lhat all there remains to say now
on the subject is the plain statement that
the city oi Sacramento needs to-day not
l< 3s than thirty policemen. It is difficult
to imagine how twelve patrolmen—tho
number at present employed (said num
ber being divided into two watches of six
men eacli) —can reasonably be expected
to perform the work thai should more
appropriately be allotted to the former
number. There are about 100 miles of
streets in the city, which, under our I
present system, would make sixteen and
two-thirds miles of streets for each patrol
man.
Therefore, I desire to urge attention to
the necessity for a polico patrol wagon
and a signal system, for rapid and effi
cient service at all places, where the
prompt appearance of police officers may
prevent loss of file or destruction of prop
erty^ as well as to secure the arrest of
criminals before they have time to escape
from the scene of their crimes.
The experience of other cities in which
the patrol Wagon system has been intro
duced has resulted most favorably. The
arrests have nearly doubled, and there
has been a marked decrease in tho crimes
reported.
Tho patrol Wagons are models of con
venience antl adaptability for work.
They combine lightness and strength,
and are rendered conspicuous by the Slue
body and bright red running gear. They
are fitted with a:i alarm gong similar to
the fire department vehicles, and can go
in a harry for an alarm. Under the seats,
which run lengthwise on each side of tho
box, aro compartments for handculfs,
"eome-aloiigs," clubs, blankets, canvas
stretchers, ropes and other articles that
are found necessary or convenient. Tlie
Stretcher is very ingeniously arranged,
and is the best device for the purpose de
sire;!. The stretcher, when not in use, is
rolled upon poles and placed in one of the
compartments under the seat. When re
quired for use, the stretcher is drawn out
through a small door at the end of tho,
wagon aud four hooks, which accompany
it, are fitted to their proper places, two tit
each side hf the wagon. In these hooks
the poles attached to the sides of tlie
stretcher are placed; and the canvas hangs
free between the seats of the wagon and
is carried without disturbing the patient,
thoAplting of the wagon being overcome.
FTOr obstreperous prisoners there is a
ring in the door of the wagon-box, tb
which the belligerent party can bo tied
down and seen red.
The fact that our city has overgrown its
police force ii yondali reasonable propor
tions is apparent to all; therefore the pro
caring of a patrol-wagon would supply
an immediate necessity. If not, the pb
lice force must soon be increased.
"That tlio efficiency of tbe police force
would be fully doubled by the adoption
of the patrol system, can bo shown by
testimonials from the Chiefs of the differ
ent police departments in cities that have
adopted the system.
Another great disadvantage under
which this department tabors, is the feet
that there is no emergency fund provided,
except what is received from Sherifis
who are obliged to leave prisoners in the
city prison over night, en route to tlie
Folsom State Prison, and for which we
get §1 for each prisoner. These receipts
do not average over StiO per year, all told.
There should be an emergency fund of
at least 1400 per year placed at the disposal
of the Chief of Police, to be used for tele
graphing and other necessary expenses
in eases of emergency.
Suppose some terrible crime, such as
murder or highway robbery ocean, or
even the stealing of a horse and buggy,
and the perpetrator is trying to get away,
and it Incomes necessary to immediately
send officers in pursuit of the criminal,
an emergency fund is Indispensable.
During my Incumbency of the office of
Chief of Police the following number of
arrests have been made, meals and lodg
ings provided indigent persons, etc

JANUARY WEATHER.
Signal Observer Bar wick Submits Somo
Interesting Comi>arisou.s.
The Signal Service records in this city
show yesterday morning to havo been
the coldest this season. The lowest tem
perature for tho first timo has reached tho
freezing point (32°), and this was reached
after sa. m., at which hour tho lowest
was 35°. Thero was, of course, a killing
frost.
The lowest last year was 2.<>°, 3 degrees
below tho freezing point. It may lie that
our lowest temperature for this month is
yet to come, and it may roach that point
in a day or so. Still, a temperature of a
few degrees below tite freezing point is of
no consequence, because il damages
nothing, but on tlie other hand makes it
healthier.
Tho highest and lowest temperature
yesterday was ~A)° and '.i' 2°, as against 40°
and 30 3 on the same date last year. The
highest and lowest one year ago to-day
was 14° and 30°.
There were last January five days upon
which the minimum or lowest tempera
tars recorded wits from two to three de
grees below tlie freezing point, and three
of those days were in succession—the Vtli.
Sth and 9th, and again oh the 13th and
14th. Thia month baa, so far, been mucc
milder than ths same month last year to
an equal date.
The barometrical readings at 5 a. X,
air; .", p. m. yesterday were 30.20 and 30.21
inches, respectively, showing a high and
rising barometer, which, if accompanied
by clear skies, means cold weather.
