In consequence of the absence of some of the members of the Board of i'ree holdr-rs. the meeting last evening; was not called to order until afterß o'clock.

Mr. Uail, of the Committee on Bonded Indebtedness, reported that he had not had time to examine the work of the Funded Debt Commission for ten years k, and he thought it was useless to do so.

Johnson thought the matter should not be voted on until there was a fuller attendance of the members of the ard. The subject might be discuss however. Mr. Smith said he was not even ready tOi. • . ■. cry im portant matter and he was very much in terested in the report of Mr. Hall, who had examined the work the commission r the past two years. He ated the books examined for five years bat Dr. Simmons said he made his motion for several reasons. People were aeb what was to be done with the commis i. There was not the enthusii feeling in the community about the i charter that might be < specb I there was no doubt but that the gn question which was agitating the n. of intelligent people was that in regard to of tiie Funded Debt Commission. There were people who believed with Judge Beatty that the option of the new charter would abol ish the Co-:,mis-ion. This question over arything ei.se. The people expected tiie Freeholders to consider this, and tfthat body determined that the commission w;:- useless and of no im portance, it ought to tell the people so. Continuing, Dr. Simmons said he re <-• when the commission ; He remembered that at I that time TH E BEST FINANCIERS On the coast said the oity could never rid herself* :. The condition of the ..: time, however, bqo i how wn men were when they I .es in such a manner. If there was any danger of the abolish tl oi the commission, he for one opposed to the adoption of any charter at all, and until this question was decided to a certainty, he believed the work of! the charter-makers • was altogether ■■ mature. M r. iiall said that as Mr. Smith d< i:. he would examine the work of the ! ion for the past ten years. It i days hard work to do it. but he would volunteer. In reply I i Dr. Simmons 1 remarks, Mr. Jiall said he believed in going right ahead and making a charter. He wanted i\ c the i unded Debt < k>mmis , iJ possible, but he was willing to ■ mces and adopt a charter. tin' commission was abol- | i>hed the city would ins- only $50,000— a : liie. i>r. Simmons then read a COmmunica from Judge Beatty, published in the ; Mr. White claimed that Dr. Simmons was wrong in his views. He, for one, did not care anything about the com mission. Jt was not a good thing for Sacramento to retain. He believed in in ?•<• linir a ci mse in the charter providing i ebt < Commission should • to exist after a certain date. li' pie could only understand how small the real debt of the city was. and not the fictitious debt, they could more readily comprehend the situation. Mr. White moved that the discussion be postponed until the next me iting, ami the motion prevailed, Dr. Simmons vot ing no. tSLATTVE WORK. The meeting then proceeded to consider the report of the Legislative Committee by sections. A portion the report had | it a previous meeting. In the fifth subdivision, under Section lefining the powers of the board, Mr. inson suggested that the Trustees not only have ; he right to lay out. extend and niter streets and alleys, but also to eh (hem. The clause was amended in accordance v ith Mr. Johnson's suggestion. In the same section Dr. Simmons thong t the clause, "provide for the grading, draining, cleaning, repairing, widening, lighting, or otherwise improv- | ing and alleys," could be made somewhat stronger, (.lading soineti: meant only throwing up earth, and [gested that it would be well to insert the word "permanently" between the word- "otherwise' and "improving." Tho section was so amended. Upon motion of Dr. Simmons, it was ordered that the clause In subdivision ten prohibiting the exhibition or show of any animals, be stricken out. The doc tor observe! that such a provision would prevent a circus or menagerie from show ing in this city. The consideration of subdivision twelve, empowering the board to estab lish a Board of Health arid to prevent the introduction and Bpread of disease, and Ish a City infirmary and provide I lor the indigent sick, was postponed ! i. Nt ii the next meeting at the request of - immona. At the suggestion of Dr. Simmons it I decided to draw up a subdivision re quiring that the books and records of all city roughly kept, and that they be always turned over to their suc aors in office. Dr. Simmons said it was the custom. until late years, for the City Surveyor to take hie with him when he went out of office, and this was the reason why many disputes as to bound ary lines in the city. 1 BUST] . \>ir.'..i:.

A Civil Suit Filed and Disposed of in One Day. How Catharine Donovan Kept Her Hanic Account— A Friendly Litiga tion before Judge Van Fleet. Litigation is generally conceded to be a very slow- and ■ 1 ess, but there wasa -nit in the Superior Court yester day, which lor rapid work and quick con j elusion discounts all predecessors. It was the case of C. F. Doherty, execu tor of the estate of Catharine Donovan i deceased, against the Sacramento Dank. The suit was filed in the forenoon, as signed to Judge Vaii Fleet, and, all par y, was immediately heard I and disposed of. It was what is known as a friendly suit and was brought simply for the purpose of settling a dispute. It red that Mrs. Donovan, the de cease,!, had on deposit at the Sacramento Bank at the time of her death a sum of money. This money had been saved by her and deposited there beforo she be came, by marriage, Mrs. Donovan. The bank book showed that the money was deposited in the name ofi 'atharine Doher ty. After her marriage she did not have lnr name changed on tho book, and con tinued to transact business at tlie bank as ' 'atharine Doherty. Alter Mrs. Donovan's death C. F. Doherty was appointed executor of the estate. When he went to the hank to take charge of Mrs. Donovan's money tlie officials refused to give up that of < Catherine i >oherty. The bank officials simply did this for their own protection, and so infromed j Doherty. There was no trouble on either ! side and no hostility shown. It was j I that an order of court should be procured directing the bank to pay over the money, and as a suit was the most expedient way to get at the matter this i course was adopted. After hearing the statements of both Bides, Judge Van Fleet rendered judg ment in favor of tlie executor. D<>, and the hank was directed to pay the money over to him. SOCIAL AND PERSONAL.

The strike of the stonecutters em ployed on the new Government building remains unsettled. L'arlaw Bros., the contractors, offered to p_ay the men §4 ight hoars' work, provided the iveu would work nine hours a day lor six weeks iirst. This offer the men de i ined as being unfair, as they claimed they could cut all the stone necessary to complete the building in eight weeks. Still at Large.

It was a little alter 2 o'clock in the afternoon when one of the chambermaids at the Freeman Hoiel reported at the office that she was unable to get into a certain room, npied by a gentleman, to make up the bed. The clerk hastened to the room and on unlocking the door discovered the oc cupant in t!:e throes of death*. The pecu liar odor in the room led the affrighted ' emploj es to the conclusion that the man had taken laudanum and a physician was hastily summoned, who adminis tered antidotes. These had the effect of . -ring the would-be suicide to con lusness. He was immediately taki n to the hospital and made as comfortable . as possible. It was a deliberate attempt to end his life, as the man, whose name is Charles (J. McKenney, states that he took about two ounces of laudanum and that the next time he will make a sure job of it and blow out his brains. He came to the Freeman House the night before last and nothing was heard of him until found unconscious yesterday afternoon. A loiter was found in his* room (riving his name and age 35 years), that he was an incy-at-law and a native of Ohio, thai he meant to end his life owing to finan cial difficulties, etc. The letter aiso re quested Ed llonn of Clipper Gap to in form his relatives. Mr. Freeman states that he is in a fair way to recover, but be lieves from his conversation that he is determined to die, and unless taken in hand bj' his friends will carry out his resolution.

The piece, which is one of thrilling interest, was never given here i>ut once, a long time ago, by Daniel L. liandmann. The story in Mr. Tyr rell's work is closely followed, and all the fine points of Stevenson's vivid imaginings given and made dramatically effective. As Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Mr. Hunting, who assumes the title role to-night, is said to be at his best. He baa played the very difficult dual role with entire success at the East. ! Leant Stover will assume the role of Florence Jekyll. The piece will be mounted with some fine new scenery. The company is strong, and ought to be able to furnish the leaders entirely satisfactory support. The box office is open this morning for the reser vation of scats without extra charge.
