The following messages from the Mayor were read: To the Board of Trustees: I here with transmit to your honorable body the written resignations of Edward P. Filand and W. P.

Respeetfuliv submitted, P.. T. STEINMAN, Mayor. Tozer reported that the Finance Com mittee had conferred with the attorneys of Mrs. Malone in relation to her dam age suit against tiie city fur injuries susta; her at the Y-street levee. Their oiler of $10^ had been accepted, and they recommended that the amount be paid. II was so ordered. Leonard said that a number of citizens had called on him in relation to the sale and removal of the Stevens pump from the Water Works, opposing such ac tion. It was suggested that a small lot .-chased, if possible, adjoining the building, in order to set up the new pump in it. He believed it would be dangerous to trust to the Holly pump alone, as. if it were to break down, the city would be without water. He thought that the matter was worth con sideration. Devine moved that the Water Com mittee ascertain for what ten f it adjoining the building could be purchased, that being sufficient, and re port Monday night. So ordered. t said that he had ii: the case of Mr. Quinn, whoso water rate had been remitted. He could see no rea for doing so, and moved that the action of the board be reconsidered, which '- said the water had been shut off fi "jse because he was ad out of employment. asked an extension of time in which to pay.

Mr. Collier was a very good Antony, though we have seen more passionate ones, and those who read less vociferously. Nevertheless Mr. Collier appreciates the full virtue of the text. Mr. Armstrong's Caesar lacked the culture, finish and ease that we are told were characteristic of young Caesar. Mr. Armstrong was anything but graceful. But he read with strength, if not with nice discrimina tion, and gave his rcie a martial and commanding tone that was full of vigor. Miss Lew Tis it is quite impossible to judge. The lady was so hoarse that her tones all settled down to an unmusical monotone. It was with difficulty at times that she could use her vocal or gans at all. But she is graceful, strong and mobile-featured, indicating capacity for fine facial expression, and her posing and gesture were pre cisely w rhat we should expect from a Cleopatra interpreted to mean caprice, imperious will, strong animal pas sions, fickle but intense love,cruelty and treachery. We judge that she reads her lines, when normal conditions as to her voice prevail, with a great deal of strength and high effectiveness, but last night her reading was painful. The great drama was finely mounted. Bar ring two or three modern tables and chairs used on the stage, the fittings were superior and adapted to the period of the play. A barefooted group of ccmely women introduced the barefoot ballet, and won applause and recalls for their dancing and admiration for its cleanness, since some had thought it would be broad —on the contrary, it was pretty and graceful dancing and with out offense. It cannot be successfully contended that the introduction of liv ing pictures and stereopticon scenes into one of Shakespeare's plays is appropri ate. The immortal bard cannot be im proved upon by any modern stage trick ery. If Shakespeare is not uneasy in his ashes when such weak additions are to his work it will be surprising. Miss Lewis has a good company, with two or three voices that need haltering; she has a very fine lot of scenery, and the costumery is very rich and appro priate. All in all, her "Cleopatra" is so well staged and acted, and her own part so cleverly taken under the most dis couraging circumstances, that it is to be said of it, it is well worth seeing. SENTENCE COMMUTED. Louis Ewing Will Eat His Christmas Dinner a Free Man. Governor Budd has granted a com mutation of sentence to Louis E. Ew ing, who was sentenced from Los Ange les County in May, IS'J4, to two years' imprisonment in San Quentin for burg lary in the second degree. The commutation will set him free on December 22d. The Board of Prison Directors investigated the prisoner's statement that after he was sentenced he was detained in the County Jail for thirty-two days as a witness for the and was assured by the Dis trict Attorney and the Sheriff that the time would be deducted from his term. It was ascertained that the statement true and Warden Hale says that he has been an exemplary prisoner and he does not think he would be classed with the criminal element. SAID TO HAVE RUINED CHILDREN. Alleged Bestial Practices of Oid Man Milo J. Ayer. strange Conduct of Men Who Claim to Have Known the Facts for Months. The rumors- and whisperings that ha.ye been passed about from mouth to mouth recently concerning the alleged immoralities of an elderly man named Milo J. Ayer, a saw-filer, are likely to result in his arrest. A number of wayward girls have been in the habit of visiting his shop on J street, near Eleventh, and it is said that some of them are of such tender age as to bring their supposed rela tions with Ayer within the scope of the law. Officer Ash took one of the girls who had been visiting Ayer's place down to see Chief Drew, but as she claimed to be 14 years of age there was no law that authorized the Chief to take ac tion in her case. He said last night that he had no evidence of girls under that age having been tampered with, though certain persons say that such have been visiting Ayer's shop. A citizen in passing a house on Fif teenth street late the other night heard a commotion within and loud cries as if someone being beaten. He ascer tained that a little tot of a girl was being whipped by her mother for hav ing been out so late, and that she had sown to the saw-filer's place. No complaints have been made by relatives of any of these girls, but it is possible the police may again take cog nizance of the scandal and have the stories investigated. If the statements that have been made on the authority who claim to have witnessed the alleged acts of immorality are to be i. the old saw-filer is not one whit better than the aged scoundrels now under arrest in San Francisco for leading little girls astray. And if these reports be true, it is difficult to understand why the men who claim to have been eye-wif • to Avers misdeeds for many months aot have a stop put to tht-m, even to causing his arrest it is little parties to come out now »y they had known all summer ot Ayer having enticed little girls into his den and that they had amused them by boring holes through parti tions and watching him and his victims in their acts of Immorality. If anyone can be found to swear to a dsl Ayr these persona will i explain have played in the matter. There should be an inquiry into the ;al. by all means. Came Bach to the Valley.

SACRAMENTO DAILY RECORD-UNION, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1895. SEEMS TO QUITE FILL THE BILL. The New Combination Railroad and Wagon Bridge. All Trains Now Pass Over It, and Road Vebicles Meet No Obstructions. The 11:20 train from San Francisco yesterday was the first regular train to cross the new bridge. It had twelve heavy coaches. All the succeeding trains also crossed on the new structure, and hereafter the old bridge will not be used at an. At present the effect is marred by the presence of the old bridge, but as soon as that is removed people will begin to realize that the new one is a much more imposing structure than the other, the incline approaches giving it the appear ance of great length. The overhead roadway cannot well help leaping into instant favor, as by it both foot-passengers and vehicles avoid the danger of crossing the gridiron of tracks that line the river front, and on which trains and switch engines are continually passing back and forth, to the great peril of the unwary. The vex atious waits are also done away with. Formerly, when a train was nearly due, the bridge watchman was obliged to give notice to people that they could not cross until the train had passed, and many a man has fumed and raged impotently at a delay that he could ill afford to suffer, but which a regard for his safety rendered absolutely unavoid able. Hereafter, except on the compara tively few occasions when the draw is open, vehicles and foot-passengers can cross at all times without fear, and when the draw is open the automatic gates will close, thus avoiding all dan ger of accidents. There is an esthetic side to the ques tion also. From the overhead way a fine view of the river can be obtained in both directions, a thing that was hardly possible on the old bridge, and the greater elevation adds much to the attractiveness of the scene. It is safe to say that the roadway will speedily be come a favorite place of promenade with people for this a.nd other reasons, and that^hey will discover new beauties in the river from their elevated point of view. The Second-street extension is still in use, but as the company is laying down several new tracks, it will soon be al most filled with them from Second street to the river, and as people will re alize how much safer the inclines are, it is probable that the opposition to the closing of the extension will soon be withdrawn. The cost of the new structure is said' to have been about $190,600; It is cer tainly a massive, imposing piece of work, and in all respects presents ad vantages over the one formerly in use.

Record-Union: I saw in your paper of the 12th a letter from Elk Grove signed "An Outsider," speaking of Rev. D. -F. Huff el, pastor of the Pres byterian Church at. that place. They may be proud of their minister. He is a good, earnest worker in the church. He waa pastor of the M. E. Church in Williams a few years ago. When he came there the church was run down; empty seats morning and evening; no interest' felt in church matters. How was it after Rev. Huffel took charge? The house became full morn ing and evening. Soon the church had a new coat of paint, and things inside were made inviting. Many converted under his pleadings for the sinner. But jealousy crept in. Soon he was not ap preciated, not rewarded for his labor. How is the church since he left? Let those answer who were doing all they could to hurt the feelings of him, who had come to Williams to build up their church and raise them out of the mire. AN OUTSIDER.
