The Supervisors Hear Some of the
Troubles of a District.
Wrangling Over an Assessment—Tbe
Counti* Jail Prisoners Nearly
Lose Their Tobacco.
The Supervisors met as Swamp Land
Commissioners yesterday forenoon.
Afte# a number of claims against
Reclamation District No. SIB had been
audited, ex-Judge J. W. Armstrong pre
sented a petition to the board from tho
trustees of that district asking that the
board appoint Commissioners to leavy an
assessment upon the district for the pur
pose of raising fuuds to further prose-
Cute works of reclamation and improve
It appears tliat the landowners in this
district are divided into two factious,
which are lighting each other. Albert M.
Johnson, for the faction opposed to tho
trustees aud their followers, addressed
the board when .ludiro Armstrong bail
liuished. He objected to the petition be
ing considered for the reason that his
clients had not been consulted with refer
ence to the petition. He declared also
that the proposed new work was un
necessary aud not desired by a majority
of the owners in the district.
In reply to Mr. Johnson Judge Arm
strong said that tho most of the assess
ment was for repairs to the levee, and
everybody would bo benefited by such
repairs. Unless the repairs are now
made it would soon be too late to
complete the work and the land would
be in such a condition tbat it would
bo impossible to gather a good crop.
Mr. Johnson said that it was not
necessary to be urgent in tbe matter, as
the other land-owners in the district had
never been consulted ou the subject, and
they should be given a chance to be
heard. He asked that consideration oi
the petition to appoint Commissioners be
deferred ten days, to givethe laud-ownors
In the district an opportunity to settle the
matter among themselves.
Supervisor Curtis, who owns land in
Om district, thought that the matter
nhould be deferred, aud moved that it be
considered on August 23d.
! ho motion was carried.
Major W. A. Gott presented to the
liouru a petition from the trustees of Dis
trlct No. HL, asking for the appointment
ol i ouimissioners to levy an assessment
t' raiso funds for reclamation. This isa
n w district and no disturbing elements
have bobbed up yet, so there was no op
j -ition. lhe board granted the prayer
ol the petition, and appointed T. W. Is eau,
William Holttum and A. T. J. Reynolds
as Commissioners.
11. -M. Larue. Jr., presented to the
board a petition Irom the owners in
mation District No. 341, asking that
the boui I set a date and call an election of
■ rs for mat district.
1 vi motion of Supervisor Jenkins the
prayer ol the petition wus granted, und
!iii*r lyth wus listed for the election.
Judges aud inspectors were also up
wast their CREDITS.
Lawyer Platnauer called the board's
attention to tbe fact that a law wa.s re
cently passed allowing Couuty Jail pris
oners rive days oil' ofeach mouth of their
sentences for good conduct. The Sherit!
undor the law, he suid, should furnish a
]'• port to the board as to who Is entitled
to the credits. But Sheriff O'Neil had not
on ly refused to make any kind of a re
port, but liad shut I'latnauer off with the
_ .iioniont that he was the sole judge in
Urn matter-—that attorneys, Supervisors
ami olhor ollioials had nothing to do with
tlie matter.
Mr. Platnauer was informed that the
board was oniy considering swamp land
mutters at that timo, but wouid hear him
in the afternoon, and would also havo the
Sheriff present.

I'nder sheriff Rooney informed thej

Of demands agaiust Reclamation Dislriet .
N i _ 5 Jo.
Reconvening as the Board of Super
visors, the members listened to William
M. Sims, attorney ior Reclamation Dis
trict 335. He presented a petition ask
ing the board to call au election of Trus
tees in that district, to be held ou Sep
tember lilih.
Supervisor Curtis called attention to i
the la-t that there were two factions in \
this district, ime faction had already
beeu before the board requesting a gen- ,
eral investigation into the recent assess
ment levied, and the board set the mat
ter for a hearing on the 23d instant. He
thought that Sims' petition siiould be
heard at tho same time.
Mr. Sims said the other matter bad
| nothing to do with the election. Any
owner in the district had a right to call
lor an election. The terms of the pres
ent Trustees would expire on the Pith of
September aud he did not think they
sbould holdover longer than necessary.
Chairman -Morrison coincided with Mr.
Ex-Judge Armstrong, attorney for the
other faction, came in at this juncture,
an 1 asked thai the two matters be con
sidered together. He referred to tbe
other side as "klcKers," and said tbey
should come before the board on the 23d
and face the music.
j Mr. Curtis moved that Sims' petition
be heard on the 23d, and the motion was
_-_7X_7_______i KOR PRISONERS.
Mr. Morrison olfered a resolution that
I the couuty furnish no more tobacco to
tho Couuty Jaii prisoners.
Supervisor Jenkins opposed the reso
lution. He said tobacco did not cost tbe
county much, and was one of the few
comforts the prisoners had. Ho re
minded the Chairman of his own weak
ness for clears, and askod him how he
would like it to be shut oil' from them.
He thought Mr. Morrison had started iv
at the wrong end to economize. Hun
dreds of dollars a month could be saved
to the county by doing away with the
chaiu-gaug whereas only a small amount
could be saved by stopping oil' the
tv bacco.
Chairman Morrison said the prisoners
in the jail were there for punishment and
not for a picnic. Because a man had au
appetite for tobacco was no reason why
the county should furnish it to him.
i'heie were prisoners tbero who had un
de-ire for tobacco, but longed for whisky,
ile had asm,ich right to be supplied with
whisky as the other had to get his to
bacco. Thero were those, too, who
craved for opium. Why shouldn't they
nave ii as well as the other fellow his to
bacco? He was iv favor of punishing
prisoners in every shape and form, so
that they would not como back as hobos.
Mo wanted them to keep away from Sec
ramento County.
Mr. J nkins replied in a witty speech.
aad there was considerable fun over il.
ile said there were lots of people iv the
. .i:l who were there for gelling drunk.
ihey might have gone into Mr. Morrison's
place and got a little too much lia uor,
utter which a brass-buttoned "cop" would
take lhem to jail.
"oh, my whisky don't kill ou the
spot," said the Chairman.
"No, that's so," said Mr. Jenkins, "I
can testify to that myself."
Morrison's resolution was defeated and
he declared that alter tbis he would be in
lavor of supplying prisoners with opium
and whisky, too.
"'NEIL'S mii.i.ai.i:.
The opiuion of K. T. Devlin to the
eilect that Sheriff O'Neil is not entitled to
mileage at tue rate ol 20 cents a mile, as
ho has been in the habit of charging, wus

there was no safety-rail on a bridge on
tho Riverside road. The board has here
totore refused to consider the claim be

undor the control of the city, aud not the
county. Mr. Lett said that ail he wanted
wat tor the inrurd to either allow or reject
the claim so that a suit could be com

was rejected.
The board then adjourned until to-day.

Assessor Irvine Says Hundreds of Hop-
Pickers Are Needed.
A Desire to Give Employment to White
People Rath»r* Than Chinese,
Japanese ov Indians.
"What's all _a.»4a___ I bear about the
unemployed ff asked Assessor Irvine
yesterday, stopping a Kkcord-Union
reporter. ,/
"Guess ytfre's lots of them who cau't
get woruj^^entured the scribe.
"ThatSo? *\Vell, there's no excuse for
thorn not ireuiujt all \he work tliey can
attend to right vow—men, women und
children. V.'hatdo I mean? Why, just
what I say, pi* course. 1 assert, aud can
back it up, toi. Jh'at there is plenty of
employment to LT? had right hero iv Sac
ramento County, to say nothing of the
suriotnuUiiK counties. And good, whole
some employment, too. I refer to the
opportunities iv the hop-tiekls.
Being asked to bo more explicit, Mr.
Irvine said there were millious of hops
to be picked from now until the tirst of
November. "There are close on to l,r_ "i
acres of hops right here in Saoramento
County alone," ho continued, "and hun
dreds of men, women and children will
Ibe required to pick them. To give you
| an idea how mauy people employment
lean be given to, lot me tell you that it
, takes one hundred pickers thirty days to
] clean up twenty-live acres. Now, last
j year the hop-men of this county paid out
: 550,000 to the pickers, so you sco tbat was
distributed among a good many people.
This year the hop acreage is larger, and
of course still moro money will be paid
out. But the great trouble heretofore
has been that all of this money went to
Chinamen, Indians and Japs."
"Don't the hop men want white peo
ple?'* asked the reporter.
"Want them ! Well, 1 should say they
do. There is not a hop man in this county
who does not givt- the preference to white
people. But the trouble is the white folks
don't seem to want this kind of work
here. It is not so in the East. There the
work is all done by whites, and they are
not paid as much as the Calilornia hop
mon pay. Why, even up here at Wheat
land, in Yuba County, whole families go
Into the hou lields and do the work. It
used to be done principally by China
men, but it is not so now. I want to see
Sacramento County like Yuba—none but
whites iv the lields. They aro just as
good, if not bolter pickers than tiie In
dians and Chinese. I have a hopyard
myself, and am getting all the whites I
can, but of course will have to do us my
neighbors will also do, and that is, till iii
the gap with tho copper-skins aud red
"What wages can the hop-pickers
earn?" asked the reporter.
"Well, that depends upon their
I rapidity. You see, we pay thetn 1 cent
ior every pound of hops they pick. An
average man can pick at least 200 pounds
a day. iho women average from 160 to
175 pounds, and the girl-; and boys about
the same. Last year there was a 18-year
old girl on my place who picked over 200
pounds a day easily. The families camp
right on the lields and it jSirtakes more
of a picnic than anything else, ln the
East houses are provided for the pickers,
but out here we have not done so as vol,
as the Chinese aud Indians prefer to
sleep outside. But we put up tlie cabins
as last as the supply oi whites increases,
and would house tnem all if we could got
whites exclusively. Now, I'm in earnest
about this matter. There's no reason in
the world why anybody should be com
plaining that there is no work to do, and
tbere is no reason in the world why all
this monoy should go to Indians,
Chinamen and Japs, when needy famil
ies of our own color and nee could have
it just as well as not. Wo don't want the
Mongolians, but we liave to take them,
because the hops have to bo picked, aud
picked wheu they aro ripe."
Continuing Mr. Irvine said that other
counties wauted white hop-pickers just
as bad as Sucramento does. Yolo County
hopmen will expend between $15,000 and
820,000 this season for picking, and give
employment to hundreds. Yuba County
wauts more of them, and Lake Couuty,
Mendocino and other hop districts were
all in the same condition.
Apropos to what .Mr. Irvine says, it
might be added that the frnit men have
beon experiencing about the same trouble
getting white pickers, lt was only re
cently that a prominent fruit-grower,
whoso orchards aro ou Grand Islaud, in
formed a Record-Union reporter tiiat
despite the cry of "no work" he could
not get white men to work, and nono of
his neighbors could either, lt was not
because they wero not willing to pay good
wages, he said, because no fault could bo
found on this score. But it was simply a
case of not being able to induce anybody
to go to work. The fruit was ripening
fast, and had to be picked without delay!
In their dilemma the fruit men had to full
back on the Chinese and Japs again.
How a Sagebrush Swindler Played tho
Check Swindle.
Even shrewd detectives are not always
"onto themselves" in the presence of the
trained and oily-tongued swindler. If
anyone had told Railroad Detective Ben
True that a stranger could work off a
bogus chock on him tho oflicer would
have considered such individual a ht sub
ject for an insane asylum.
But it was done, just the same, and now
the detoctivo has all the ollicers on tho
looi-out for Charles ____, Lester of Keno,
Nev., on a charge of swindling.
It appears that on Wednesday evening
a friend of Mr. True's introduced to him
Charles SC Lester, just from Reuo, who
wished to nave cashed a cheek on a Reno
bank for $lt> 55, it being after "baakiug
True accommodated the sagebrush tour
ist, and the next day deposited tiio check
in the Farmers' and Mechanics' Bank for
collection. Yesterday he learned to his
dismay that the check was a bogus one,
wherefore the charge riled by him against
Lester for swindling.
The fact has been learned that tbe fel
low had recently served sixty days in the
Keno Jail for a similar transaction over
there. He came to Sacramonto a few days
ago aod put up at a J-street hotel, lie
told people about the placo that he was on
his way trom Keno to Sau Fraucisco, and
had remained here for a few days to see
the Capital City and the "elephant" he
had so often heard of as being oue of the
curiosities here.
He was iv no great hurry about leav
ing the city to escape the consequences of
the trick he had played on the detective,
for ou Thursday he called at the poiice
station and told the officers ho knew
Fredericks, the outlaw, and that he was
iv a camp near Rono. He said his name
was Hoffman, and he wanted the police
department to supply him with money to
make the trip there and bring the outlaw
back. He did not get the money, per
haps for the reason that the police depart
ment is dead broke ail the time.
Lester is described as a German about
35 years of age, live feet eight inches in
hight, with sandy short hair, mustache
aud beard, and wore a light brown suit
of clothes, all made of similar material.

The Earliest Fruit Land in the State
Equal in All Respects to the Famous Yaca Talley, liet It Adjoins,
Capay Valley is situated in Yolo County, about 90 miles by rail from San Francisco,
and is traversed in its entire length by the Woodland, Capay and Clear
Lake Railroad, the distance from Esparto to Rumsey being 21 miles.

The Capay Valley Land Company is offering the
most fertile lands in this beautiful valley upon terms which
enable the purchaser to pay for the land out of its own
product, viz: Interest only for five years at 7 per cent.
The only condition imposed is, that a reasonable pro
portion of the land purchased shall be planted to fruit
trees or vines. Land may be bought without this
condition on payment of 20 per cent, cash and re
maining 80 per cent, at the end of five years, with in
terest annually in advance, at 7 per cent. The various
tracts owned by the Capay Valley Land Company have
been subdivided into 10 and 20-acre lots, which axe for
sale at prices varying from $50 to $150 per acre. Simi
lar unimproved land in Vaca Valley has recendy been
sold at $400 to $500 per acre.
These Capay Val'ey lands are under the most favor
able climatic conditions for the prosecution of profitable
fruit growing, and the locality has proved itself to be
one ofthe earliest in the State. The grape crop of iBgp
from the company's vineyard at Cashmere was picked,
dried and shipped to Chicago and Philadelphia before
the Fresno County grapes were ripe.
The railroad passes through all of the tracts owned by
the Capay Valley Land Company, thus insuring excel
lent shipping facilities; and land may now be purchased
in the immediate proximity of either of the following
stations: Capay, Cadenasso, Surrey, Guinda, Sauterne,
Cashmere or Rumsey.
At many of these places fine orchards of the choicest
and earliest varieties of peaches and apricots may already
be seen, and during the coming season considerable ad
ditional acreage will be planted out. One of the recent
sales made by the company was that of the Tancred
Tract, containing 600 acres, to a colony association.
This tract has been subdivided into forty holdings, all of
which will be planted to fruit trees this season.
The fine orchards on the Guinda Tract, where 400
acres have been sold, are especially worthy of mention,
and it is a significant fact that several of the blocks are
owned by successful Vaca Valley fruit-growers, who ex
pect to make their earliest shipments from here.

Too much stress cannot be laid upon the great ad
vantage to the fruit-grower of being in early locality.
In most cases it makes the difference between success
and failure. The industrious orchardist of Capay Valley
may rest assured that he will derive all the benefits gained
by the first fruit shipments of the season, and that 2c
acres of this rich land, when the trees are in bearing, will
yield a handsome and assured income.
The Capay Valley Land Company has an agent re
siding in the valley, whose duty it is to show the various
tracts to land seekers.
Four townsites have been laid out in different points
in the valley, viz: Esparto, Cadenasso, Guinda and
Rumsey. Town lots may now be purchased at reason
able prices and on easy terms.
The enterprising and flourishing town of Esparto is
situated at the lower end of the valley, and $125,000
worth of substantial buildings have already been erected,
including a fine four-story brick hotel, two large brick
b.'ocks and waterworks, with pipes laid in the streets,
besides extensive warehouses and numerous residences.
The town has a postoffice. school-house and a weekly
paper, and the fine railroad depot contains telegraph
and express offices.
Postoffices have also been established at Guinda and
Rumsey. This latter place, situated at the head of the
valley, is the present terminus of the railroad. The com
fortable little hotel makes excellent quarters for hunters
as well as land-seekers.
The advantages enjoyed by the settler in Capay Val
ley may be thus concisely summed up:
A soil of great fertility, yielding bountifully of every
A soil and climate which will ripen all kinds of fruit and
vegetables earlier than anywhere else in the State.
A climate perfectly adapted to the curing of rai -ins and
drying of frnit, without the aid of artiticial evaporators.
A location that is central and close to markets. Railroad
communication which enables shipments to be made
quickly and cheaply. Lands which are sol 1 cheaper and
on better terms than anywhere else in the State.
