STATE PRISON GRAIN BAGS.
The Farmers Want Them at the
Lowest Possible Cost.
Senator Ostrom of Yuba, on Behalf of j
the Grangers, Addresses the
State Prison Directors.
The following communication has been j
addressed to the State Prison Directors by j
Senator D. A. Ostrom of Yuba, on be
half of the farmers,; in relation to the
prices fixed upon grain bags. It will be
considered at to-day's session:
'To the Honorable Bon, dof Prison Di
rectois, San (Quentin —Gen i i.kmkn : At
the last annual meeting of the State
Grange, C, P. Berry, J. D. Huffman and
myself were appointed a committee to
confer with your board relative to the sale
and distribution of grain bags manufac
tured at San Quentin Pri.ou. Finding '
myself un_ble to personally appear be
fore your honorable board, and at the in
stance of Governor Markham, I herewith
hastily tender my views, perhaps crudely
arranged, yet candidly submitted.
"As introductory, I submit that the
State, injustice to its citizens, should not j
be a party to the enhancement of the value !
at any product of a State institution, i
■where that product is consumed by its |
own citizens.
"To take up in its inception the maun- |
facture of bags at the prison, it might not i
be ami >s to recur to the fact that in the
passage of the bill making the appropria
tion of necessary buildings and ma
chinery the convincing argument was
used that it* the appropriation was made, |
and the State prisoners were put to work i
at that branch of industry, it would be a
strong factor in preventing the founds
tion for-what is called the 'bag or.,
ring,' which combination, composed of
the various importers and dealers, are in
the habit of putting up the price of bags
during the harvest far beyond a reasona
ble business profit, to tiie great injury
and loss to the bread-producers of the
State, the farmer.
"We are aware, all are aware ofthe fact
that the poorest and tho wealthiest use a
comparatively uniform quantity ot bread;
also of this other fact, that whoever con
sumes a loaf of bread has, in some de
gree at least, to bear his or her proportion
of the cost of producing it, even down to
the bag into which the farmer puts his
wheat; therefore we claim, and we be
lieve the position incontrovertible, that
all citizens, all consumers of broad, are
interested mutually with the producer in
the manufacture of the several million of
bags per annum, and the proper distri
bution and sale of the same under tho
management, control and supervision of
your honorable board.
"This brings up the question, bow and
to whom should prison tags be sold, aud '
under what restrictions? We claim they
should be sold direct to the farmer, and
at cost to the Stato or thereabout. But
we are not willing to lump the entire ex
pense bill of San Quentin Prison, with
its thirteen hundred prisoners, more or i
less, and charge it all up to the jute I
works, for the reason that there are less
than one-third of that number eugaged
in or about the works: why they are not
nil so engaged, your honorable board is
doubtless well aware, is not the fault of
the farmers, for they have for several
years striven for legislation which
would have doubled the present output !
of bags.
"At the twenty-eighth session of tho
Legislature testimony was adduced to tho
effect that the cost of bags manufactured
at the prison,exclusive of prison labor (for
the day shift; was $f 00 per hundred; so that
at this time, with a very heavy duty re
moved on raw jute, it would seem that the j
output at San t.uentin ought to be placed i
witnin the reach of consumers at a very |
much reduced price from that at which
your honorable board fixed it at your last
meeting for that 'purpose. In this con
nection it is not amiss to call your atten
tion to the very proper action of your
board of ouo year ago. By that action
you fixed the sale of bags at six and one
half cents per bag, and limiting the num
ber to any ono individual to 5,000. The
farmers of this State believe your action j
at that time commendable and in the j
right directum, anu largely prevented the
formation of rings and combinations to j
rob the producer and consumer.
"It is not for a moment to be supposed
that the "honorable Board of Prison Di- j
rectors would play into the hands of the j
bag rings; yet the recent action ofthe board
has had that effect, for at the time the j
price was fixed on prison bags at seven
and three-eighths cents. Calcutta bags
were quoted for less money, June dcliv- •
©ry. But mark the effect—immediately I
thereafter prices advanced, with a proba
bility of going still higher, particularly ;
if prison bags aro to be still further atl- \
vanoed in price as foreshadowed by a j
distinguished member of your board.
"As to distribution, we maintain that j
the number of three thousand bags
should be the maximum, and none
should have more. And we recommend
that the board require an atlidavit to ac
company each order, that the bags so or
dered are for the Individual use of the
person so ordering. As to the number,
we believe the medium or small farmer
should have an equal chance with the
large, more particularly as in the caso
wheie the State, through your board, can
prevent the extortions which are prac
ticed by rings aud combinations formed
for that purpose.
"We claim some consideration from
the servants ofthe State. Tho farmer is
the chief bearer of the burden of govern
ment. He pays the largest portion of the
taxes which sustain it: and he it is who
builds up commerce. By the sweat ot
his brow towns and cities spring into ex
istence; by his labor railroads are made
necessary; where he prospers all other
business and enterprises prosper; it is
true, he furnishes a small proportion of
the inmates of our prisons: notwithstand
ing, he pays a larger portion for their
support, lie occupies but little official
position, and has less official recognition.
He are aware of all this, and more. We
are aware that he has no representative
on your board, which perhaps is well
enough, seeing that so few of his fellows
are under prison control and restraint.
"And now, leaving this matter with
your honorable board, and feeling we
liave in some degree acquitted ourselves
of a duty. as members oi an order which
counts tiie rolls of its membership by • he
thousands in every State in the Union,
we trust you will give this subject ai
ir careful aud candid considera
tion, and -that you will place prison bags
■ reasonable price and in such quanti
ties as to give all desirous of purchasing
un equal chance to do so.

GOOD FISH STORY.
Told at the Expense of the Sacraraento
l'ivor salmon.
One of the party of lumbermen ',\ ho
recently visited this coast remained here
for a few weeks to enjoy the hospitality of
some of his relative.. A few evenings
since be was in the company ofa number
of ladies and gentlemen and was telling
them ofthe wonderful things he had seen
in this and adjoining States while with
the party, of which he formed one.
"When we were on the way eat," said
he, "we made up our minds to watch the
Caliibrnians, tor we were led to believe
from the bit: stories we ha., heard
that they were given to >tre*-_hii_g the
long bow, but to their credit be it said
that everything we had heard was veri
fied, even to the takiug of 12-,000 feet of
lumber from a single tree.
"But they told us a story which they
•were unable to verify, still we believe it,
in view of the correctness of everything
else that they told us. it was this:
"One winter, according to the racon
teur, there was such an unusual run of
salmon in the Sacramento River that in
forcing their way up stream they ran
against and broke several piles that sup
ported a railroad bridge aud it sagged in
the center, makinrr it unsafe or a train to
p..s. over it. 11 v.... near train tin...

he salmon, noticing the damage they had
tone, got together, piled one on top of the j
•ther, raised the bridge to its proper level i
md held it up until the train passed over j
t in safety.
"Ladiesand gentlemen," continued the i
umberman, "I give you the story as I I
rot it. You Californians ought to know
f it is true."

rhe YY. 11. St. onj_ Company's Affairs
Now In Good Shape.
In November last the old-established
Tuit-shipping house of \V. R. Strong
-ompany, owing to circumstances with
.vhich the public are familiar, was forced
-o make a temporary assignment for the
.enefit of its creditors.
Tho affairs of the company were put j
nto the hands of three trustees, consist- '
ngof Aliec Towle, A. W. Porter and L.
.. Smith. These gentlemen found thecon
sern perfectly solvent, and that it simply
•ecpiired a little time in which to turn
ivailable property into money in order
O pay Dp all its liabilities in full.
The creditors were all found to be
rien lly to the house, and they readily
tcceded to the proposed settlement,
vhich has been made on the basis of pay
ng every dollar of indebtedness in full.
At a special meeting of the directors of
he corporation, held the other evening,
he trustees made their final report
ihowing the affairs of the house to be in a
nost healthy condition, and that all the
>romises made by the company would be
carried out to the letter. The trustees
hen reconveyed all the property to the
■ompany, which assumed charge as be- j
ore the assignment and accepted the res- I
gnation of the trustees.
P. EL Piatt, General Manager of the ;
;ompany, returned yesterday from South
mi California, where he had been lor
iome weeks attending to the interests of
he house. He reports that its business
v that section was larger and more
.roiitable this season than ever beforo. I
ip to this date he had shipped over 400
jarloads of oranges and vegetables, and !
)f the balance of the entire crop remain- j
ng on the trees the company controls !
ibout one-half. He had established pack
ng-houses iv thirteen districts in South- '
?rn Caliiornia, where the firm was hand
ing the crop to the satisfaction of grovv
)rs and with profit to itself.
It is a matter for congratulation, by
joth the firm and its customers, that
what at first seemed to be a general
_al.u.iity has ended so satisfactorily to all
.oncerned.

En ten a iv men t.
The "book" social given at the Congre- l
national Church last evening was largely ;
attended, and resulted in the donation of j
quite an addition to the Sunday-school
library.
The price of admission was either a
book for the library or sullicient money
to purchase a book. The receiving table
was well covered with volumes and the
cash receipts were quite large.
After a few words from Hey. J. B. SU- \
cox, the pastor, the following entertain
ment was given. Mrs. 15. F. Howard,
announced for a vocal solo, was unab'l3 to '
be present, which was explained by Dr.

A LI-TUB Fnl.Ks' PAKTV.
The party given by Jones, _ iseh «fc !
Watson to the young'l'olks. in celebration j
ofthe close of the Saturday afternoon ;
class, was a remarkably brilliant affair.
It would be hard to fancy a more de- j
light ml scene thau Turner Hail presented ;
last evening. The room was very taste- <
fully decorated, and the assemblage of
young folks present were at the i
interesting age when light hearts,
short drosses, fairy forma and nimble
feet seemed the universal rule, without j
an exception. An unusual beauty was |
added to the fairy ball by the bright cos- j
tumes, the bright eyes, the sunny hair
and happy voices of merry children. The
deportment of those assembled, without
exception, demonstrated the careful drill
and masterly training of their instructor. :
The hall 'was tilled with little gentle- j
men and ladies, whom it will i>"t do to
designate in this connection as children,
without the risk of a seeming lack oi
dignity and respect.
Among the many pleasing toilets noted
were the following: (.race Cox, white
siik, with flowered lace overdress; Flor- j
ence Larkin, _\'ile green silk with rib- i
bons; l.llita King, bright red silk, lace
trimmings; Pauline .Johnston, pink silk,
trimmed with chiffon lace; Muriel Katz- j
enstein, canary silk, lace trim mines; .Miss
Howe, pink silk and lace; Kittie Hoehn, I
shrimp pink silk, lace trimmed; Mabel
Lovdal. white mull ribbon trimmings; '\
Nellie Pierson, white embroidered mull; !
Beth Sill, blue satin trimmed with white
swan _ down.
The grand march was led by Fred Pari
and Bertie Howe, and the supper march '
by Willie McGuire and Paulino John- ;
ston.
The ladies on the Committee of Arrange
ments were Mrs. Pike,|Mrs. J ohnston|and
Mrs. King.
The banquet also presented a brilliant
and happy spectacle, and was not, from
appearances, the least pleasing feature of !
the happy evening. The festivities con
cluded at the late hour of half-past 10, and
the happy young people (be it said with
some hesitation) were taken in charge by
their mammas, many of whom wero
among the pleased spectators.
George Boyne received manyeompU-l
ments for the tasteful decoration of the
hall, and the musicians proved tie-in
selves especially attentive and entrancing.
Kl'WoUTli LBAO-TE SOCIAL.
The strawberry and ice cream social
given by the Epworth League at the M.
E. Church South was also well attended,
and in addition to the festival was a very
well rendered aud enjoyable literary and
musical entertainment. Among the
; pleasing features were: Recitation, Dolly ;
| Brown; vocal solo, Maud Cann; flute !
| solo, Charles Stickney; vocal solo, Myra '
! Shields: recitation, Mr. Colliding; duet, !
