On cross-examination Slack denied that he had boon in con sultation with Irank Daroux or .lack Sullivan about the case. He also de dared that Mike Sullivan had not said anything about succeeding Talbot on the police force. William Fawcett, Superintendent of the City Cemetery, was called but was ab sent. General Hart remarked sarcastic ally that the Commissioners had bettor go to Jawcett, as the latter would not come to them. "He's taking caro of the dead," re marked Mayor Steinman. '1 he prosecution rested now, but re served tho right to put in Lir. Nichols' testimony later on. THE DEFENSE'S KVIDIONCK. Kvidence for the defense was then in order. Riohard Corsaw took the stand and tes tified that he visited DriscoU in the I hater's room and advised him not to [ prosecute Talbot DrisooU said, bowerer, i that his friends wanted him to stay with i the case. E. C. I lerz.ig testified that ho had known Talbot a lontr time. He was passing the ; corner of Highlit and X streets when Talbot arrested Driscoll. The two men fighting. The witness assisted Tal ; bot to handcuff DrisooU, and had his nose punched by the prisoner for his pains. • Ho thought it took ten or fifteen minutes ;to handcuff Driscoll. Tho latter was lighting all the lime and calling Tall.ot vile names. The witness considered it a case of "lighting drunk." Talbot could not handle the man alone. Tho witness s:'.id that one of Use handcuffs locked lie fore Driscoll was secured, and the witness said beheld DriscoU down while Talbot got a key out and unlocked i:. This caused quite a lau^h, as Herzog is i a little fellow. "WasDriscoll fighting while you held him down?" asked Mayor Steinman. "Oh. he was trying to get up all the time, and he chucked me into the gutter several times," replied lierzog. •loiin English, who works at the Clunie Opera-house, testiiied that he was in the alley back of tho theater when he heard a police whistle. He ran out to Eighth and X .streets and saw Talbot and Driscoll. The latter was handeofied and violent. He was lying on the sidewalk, calling Talbot names and trying to break Ms manacles. Talbot was perfectly sober, cool and not angry. J. .1. HefTernan was next called. He said he and George Parnell were stand ing near tho scene of the struggle, and thought some one was being robbed. They ran o\ er and .saw Driscoll on tho sidewalk haadotUEsd. Talbot was stand ing over him. Driscoll was drunk, vio lent and foul-mouthed. < ith'cer Ahem remembered the night that Talbot brought DrisooU to the City Prison. Witness was relieving Night Burke at the time. He washed coll and saw Tali>ot cleaning tho dust oil his clothes. The witness said to Driscoll, "You got a little thu worst of it." Driscoll replied that "if he had been sober he would not havegoUen tho worst of it." "The papers have said something about throwing Driscoll into a dirty cell. Waa that true?" asked i ieneral J iart. "Well, we put him whore we put all the drunks—in the big cell," said Ahem. "It's all the city gives us." George Washington McKeon drove tho hack that DrisooU was taken to the police station in. He testified that Driscoll was intoxicated, but he could probably take take, care of himself and walk unassisted, diaries Tomlin, who accompanied Mc- Koon on tho hack, corroborated George Washington's evidence. Hiram Tilden said be was in Trapp's saloon the night of tho trouble. Driscoll came in there throo times and drank a glass of beer each time. Driscoll was somewhat intoxicated, ho said, but was "'not extra full." TAI.linT TALKS. Officer Talbot then took the witness stand and told his version of tho arrest. was walking up X street, and upon reaching Kighih street he noticed a man asleep on the sidewalk. He shook him up and asked him if ho knew what time of night it was. DriscoU imme diately became abusive. Talbot told him lie was a police officer, but Driscoll only became more violent and struck at the officer. Then Talboc bit him and they had it in rough-and-tumble stylo for quite a while. The officer related how ' Driscoll fought against being handcuffed. It was so dai-k that he could not sou whether Driscoll was an old man or a young man. lie declared that he only defended himself, and ho had no desire to beat Driscoll, He did not know the man and had nothing against him. The officer was not suio whether or not he struck Driscoll with the handcuffs, but thought lie might have done so. It was now quite lato in the afternoon and the Commissioners and attorneys wero anxious to take a rest, so an ad journment was takou until this afternoon ; at li o'clock. DALY HAS REFORMED. On Lcavinsr .Jnil lit- Declared That 110 Would Steal No More. William Daley, known to the police as ■'Hatchet Face," who has been serving a I term 01 six months in tho County Jail lor ! chicken stealing, was released on Satur day, his time having expired. It will be remembered that last winter, while raiding the chicken-house of M. J. Honghton, oae of a gang of chicken thieves was shot by him and another one wounded in tho shoulder. The latter was Daley, and the taste of retribution then received, together with his imprison ment, have apparently worked a change in his ideas, as he dec-lares that he has re formed and will not hereafter trouble any property that does not belong to him. Sheriff O'Neil has given bun a few days' employment, after which ho will go to i>irk iioj's ou tho Roouey ranch. Sao -io-i>-s Capitol Site.

They Save Valuable Property Outside the City. Flames Raging About the Powder- Houses Were Speedily Ex tinguished by Thorn. Captain J. G. Buchanan's railroad fire crow did some very good work on Sat urday, and demonstrated their ability as i bustling liro-fijfhters. Word was received at the railroad of fice that a grass fire was raping in the j field lyinjj between the main truck at Homestead Station, just east ot the city, I and the switch that branches ofl' at that j point and runs by the powder magazines of Baker<£ Hamilton aud Schaw, Ingram & Batcher. It took Captain Buchanan and the crow of hose cart No. 1 only a lew minutes to get the lire train out of the repair shop, where it is kept housed, and the way it flew over the rails betweon this city I and the scene of the fire was a caution «o the natives living along the line. Although but a lew minutes had elapsed between the receipt of the news that the fire was In progress and the lime the railroad crew reached the scene, the lira j had spread over several acros of ground, | and was then threatening several resi dences on the line of the continuation of j the Stockton road, besides being in dan gerous proximity to the powder maga zines. Indeed a fence alongside the lat ter was then in liainesi The long line of hose was run out in a lmrry, and while a portion of the crew turned thoir atteution to saving the houses referred to, other-- pulled down the burn ing fence and dragged the blazing boards away from the powder magazines. Tiien a gang of foragers were sent out and in the; neighborhood they found a j quantity of empty .sacks. These were dis- j tributed among tho men, who soaked ! them in water and battled with the grass ! fire at various points so successfully that j alter two hours of hard fighting it was extinguished. The day was hot, and the liro made it still hotter for the members of the crew, out they worked like Trojans and "staid with" the enemy until it was conquered. The railroad company's fire crow has distinguished itself on many occasions in this city and at other towns along tho i company's lines, and the record of its achievements would show that many serious conflagrations have been checked by it when tho regular liro department was unable to tope with the ilames. This was notably tho case at the Buffalo Brew ery liro a couple of years ago, and also when Lowell's wine-house and other buildings were burned last February. Captain Buchanan's men are welf dis cipllned, courageous young fellows. They are employed in various depart ments about the shops, but tho instant a tiro-alarm sounds they drop everything and break lor the lire-train. SETTLED AT LAST. There Will be No More Trouble About Unpaid Theater Licenses. General Clunio Agrees to Vay Tn— Judare Catliu Will Settle the Wash Norton Indebtedness. The squabble over delinquent theater licenses was amicably settled Saturday, j and General Clunio will pay quito a sum into the county treasury. Air. Clunie and his agents appeared be fore the board in the forenoon, and mado another appeal for a reduction of the license demanded of the theaters, but the Supervisors turned a deaf ear to him, saying that ho would have to square him self with the county before they would consider tho reduction proposition. Supervisor Todd moved that the peti tion be denied. General Clunie mado a speech, but the motion prevailed. The (ieneral then sarcastically thanked Chairman Morrison and tbe other members of the board for their efforts to amicably adjust matters, and further remarked that lie would never forgot the cordial reception he had received at the hands of the board. <iOT TOGETHKI;. Later in the day, however, Clunie had a consultation with Attorneys Hughes, Bey moor and llartman, the result of which was that all reached an under standing that puts an end to ail the trouble. Mr. Ciunie was convinced that he owed the county something over Jloo — not counting the penalties. Under the law there was due from him payments at the rate of 98 for every performance, or $40 per month, if the performances were nightly. The whole thing was rigured up 011 that basis. Bat an understanding 1 could not be reached as to the licenses which became delinquent during tho time Wash Xorton leased tho Clunie Opera-house, so this matter will be sub- j milted to Superior Judge Catlin for au opinion. Mr. Clunie agreed topav.sllo for costs, and will also pay the attorneys' fees. -♦ . THE CHAIN-GANG. The Supervisors Demand More Work From tho Prisoners. There was some more talk about tho chain-gang by tho Supervisors Saturday. Chairman Morrison said the prisoners were not doing enough work —they were not working even eight hours a day. Ho then moved that hereafter the prisoners constituting the chain-gang be required I to wurk from 7 o'clock every morning until 5 o'clock in tho afternoon, with an hour for dinner. The motion included j that the prisoners should have a half | holiday on Saturday, so that they could' do necessary work around the jail. The I motion was carried. The board instructed Supervisor Curtis i to see that the sprinklers on the county ! roads did their duty or else they would be discharged and others obtained. Com plaint had been made as to the manner in which thespriukiing was done, aud here aiter if it is not done satisfactorily the board will take summary action. Chairman Morrison called the attention of the members of the board to the fact that decisive actiou should be taken in reference to tho county's exhibit at the state Fair. Supervisor Todd moved that go'X) be ap propriated for an exhibit at the fair. After some discussion tho motion was carried. On the application of Under Sheriff Rooney credits were allowed to William I'aly and .John Rahl for good behavior! while conrined in the County Jail. The subject of repairing the Me- ! Cracken bridge over the Cosumnes River : ne;ir the Plough House was brought up; by Supervisor Toad. The repairing of | the bridge waa referred to Supervisor ! .Jenkins. supervisor Todd informed the board! that he had purchased rock for the pris- I oners in the County Jail to exercise on, I but the rock was nearly all broken up i and a fresh supply was needed. Mr. i Todd was instructed to procure more ■ rock. Chairman Morrison was instructed to ask the rity Trustees to meet with the Supervisors on the evening of August 13d to consider the advisability of taking I care of Reclamation District No. :J5 | Part of the district is overflowed witli water, and, being adjacent to tbe city. 1 the two boards will endeavor to improve the premises. Tho board agreed to go in a body to j Iload Districts 17 and 12 nuxt Wednes day for ii.c purpose of inspecting some road s'ti-s. An adjournment waa then taken until the 2Jd inst. THB ALLEGED HOdBAND-BEATER. Her Counsel's Eloquence Xearly Caused a l-'renliet In the Police Court. James Ryan appeared at the Police Station a few days ago and confided to the sympathetic ear of City Attornoy Post along tale of the trials and tribula tions of his married lite and of the treat ment he endured from the woman who had promised to love, honor and obey him, but who had forgotten her promises and had at various times exorcised her flexor and extensor muscles on his person at times when she had taken too much of [ the "rosy." Ho stated that when he reprimanded I her tho day before for getting drunk at I Oak Park she tried to prevent him from I seeing her condition by scratching out j his eyes. As a consequence the City Attorney gave him a warrant and Mrs. Kyau was arrested. When the case was called, however, Ryan was not on hand to testify, and Dr. Curtis, who is always ready to take up the cause of the alleged weaker sex, volunteered to defoud Mrs. Ryan, first stating that her husband did not wish to prosecute her. Tho susceptible volunteer counsel was nearly overcome by his feelings as ho de picted the unhappy lot of his fair client 1 (from her point of viow). His eloquence caused tears to r!ow copiously from tho spectators, which melted the heart of I J udgo Buckley, and ho dismissed the 1 charge, after severely scoring Ryan for j not showing up to testify In the case after i having his wife arrested. - —^___^^^_ YESTERDAY'S FIRE. One Hesldeneo Destroyed aud Two Others Scorched. At 4:30 o'clock yesterday morning a fire broko out in tho lower story of a houso on .Nineteenth street, near the southwest corner of G, owned by Mrs. K. G.

A RARE OPPORTUNITY Good Agricultural Landfor $1O to $2O per Acre. The Pacific Improvement Company h.-m re cently purchased twelve thousand ;.e;< y •>! land in the heart of Tehama County, for the purpose of promoting subdivision and settle ment. This land embraces kinds from lirst ctaaa Sacramento Valley agricultural land, to land of fair average quality, and ia offered at from SlO to $20 per acre, in subdivisions ot 40. SO, I^o, 160 and 820 acres. The terras upon which these lands are offered are especially attractive. They will he sold In Kubdi\isions, as nhove Indicated, by the pay ment of interest only lor thr <■ years, al which time the purchaser can begin the payment of principal hy paying Ihe lirst of live equnl an iiual installments. Thus no part of the prin cipal is to be paid for three years, and then the purchaser is to have live years in which lo pay flve equal annual Installments, with in terest at the rate of 7 percent, per annum. ! malting payments extending over a period of eight years. Intending purchasers are as sured that this is an opportunity to porcfaaa land of fair average quality at 810 per acre, and good agricultural land at §20 an acre, with other grades of land at prices to con, - spond between these figures. Tin assertion is frequently made that ?ood lands, suitable for general funning, and es pecially adapted foe fruit-growing, cannot be had in (.alifornia for le^s than from 860 to 5100 an acre. An examination of the land subject of this advertisement will prove to home-seekers that this is an opportunity tor the purchase of good agricultural land at 820 an acre, and for qualities grading down to fair agricultural land at $10 an acre, on terms of payment which should make the disposition of th«se lands to actual settlers a result easy of accomplishment. The primary object of the purchase of this body of land was the breaking up of a large holding for the purpose of promoting Its set tlement in smaller quantities and Its devotion to diligent husbandry.
