was laid up in bed at that time..

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.

RAILROAD FIREMEN.
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.

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.
