Senator Perkins has addressed a long letter to the two houses of the Legis- lature, askii.g it to instruct him how to vote upon the question of the ratifica tion of the treaty with Spain. He holds that, no matter what his personal Views —which he sets forth at length regarding the expansion policy, it is his duty to vote for California as the State directs. It is not necessary to recapitulate the reasons advanced by the Senator why he wishes to be instructed to vote against the treaty. The letter has been given in full in these columns. The Legislature should issue its in structions to both the California Sen ators at once to vote for the treaty and to uphold the Administration pol icy, since nothing is clearer than the fact that the State of California is un hesitatingly in favor of ratification ot the treaty and retention of our new possessions. The, objections raised by Senator Per kins will not in any respect modify pub lic opinion on this coast relative to expansion, since all such arguments proceed upon assumptions as to what will or may happen if the nation pur sues the policy of retention of the Ori ental possessions and the West Indian Islands ceded to us under the treaty. These assumptions do not represent facts, but theories, timid fears, and a disposition to adhere to present meth ods rather than follow the inevitable lead of destiny. If the sentimental question concern ing the advance of civilization is to be cast out of consideration wholly, there reina'ns for the State of California the selfish one of her own interest —and that la not antagonistic to the general best Interests of the nation. The ad vantages to us of acquisition are in numerable and indisputable. They are too well understood here to need de tailed recapitulation. The commercial possibilities of the Pacific empire, as it may be fitly termed, to flow from the permanent establishment of the flag in the Philippines, promise to us countless advantages, in which the honor and the profit of the whole nation will be re flected. We hold that trade will follow the flag of the country, that the natural evolution of our growth indicates the new opportunity presenting to be a natural motor in the destiny of the the American people. We have per fect faith in the ability of the repub lic to control and govern wisely and wall the new possessions, and entertain no fears that industrial conditions will be endangered by the competition of the labor of the Filipinos. On the con trary, we in California believe that the opening np of the new region to the arts and virility of American civiliza tion will mean for us new markets, by reason of increased desires prompted by improved tastes and conditions among the people of tho Philippines, where for hundreds of years ignorance, superstition and semi-slavery have kept the inhabitants in a condition antago nistic to and prohibitory of progress and uplifting. We hold that whatever new element of competition in industrial fields may arise from closer contact with these possessions will be more than offset by the impetus to be given the develop ment of our merchant marine, and the enlarged opportunities the acquisition will give us to trade with the world upon a scale never before attempted. Tha Orient, Siberia and Asia generally are opening to us now, if we but im prove the opportunity and do not permit European commercial influences to wholrx dominate in those parts. The great commerce of the future is to be between the shores washed by the waters of the Pacific Ocean, and the greater part of the benefits of that commerce will accrue to California, if we seize the opportunity, the hap of war and the trend of the wave of des tiny bring to our threshold. We can not sit idly by while the great Euro pean Powers are contending for the Asian trade. We are nearer to the Asian ports and currents of commerce than any other people of similar im portance, and it is at once a duty and a privilege to take the posi tion the drift of events and the expansion of the Oriental trade in dicates to be ours in the natural order of things. This we can the more easily do by having posses sion of the Philippines. That advan tage has been offered to us. There are none to dispute our right to avail of it If we fail to improve this oppor tunity we simply invite foreign great Powers to fall upon these new posses sions and parcel them out among them selves. To return them to Spain is un thinkable. To commit them to the un trained and long downtrodden inhabit ants, to manage without the fit ness essential to such a task, would be an act of inhumanity. THE VOTING MACHINE AGAIN. Our San Francisco contemporary, the "Chronicle," suggests that it is not the part of wisdom to buy or contract for any voting machine until after a work ing test has been made of one or more selected devices at an actual election. Our contemporary's idea is that the next election can be conducted as at present, but several machines can be located in the booths in one or more citie9 for voters to use after depositing their regular ballots, in order to give the machines a test. Of course the State must buy no pig in a poke. Of course now that it has been well warned it must have nothing to do with any of the schemers who have been plotting to rob the common wealth by cornering on a machine and forcing through a measure for its pur chase. But if the machine system is to be tested, it must be done in better manner than the "Chronicle" suggests. A mere permissive use in the midst of a genuine election will not test it since not one in ten of the voters will then use the machine. Nor if all use it will it be such a test as one in which the results are to be official. New York adopted the plan of permitting the ma chines to be officially used in three or four cities and her experience has been wholly satisfactory. What is to be avoided is long post ponement of needed reform. That it should take, as it now does, two solid months to canvass the election returns in San Francisco is a crying disgrace. That there should have been, as there was there in the late election, about 15 per cent, of errors in every precinct is outrageous, and demonstrates the abso lute necessity of some method being adopted whereby such evils will be avoided. Our contemporary has done the State a distinct high service in exposing the rascally steal that was in process of cooking in regard to the so-called Chris tiansen machine. It has brought out the fact also that at least some of the Ballot Commission signed the late re port of that body without having per sonal knowledge of all the machines re ported upon. But that a thieving scheme has been nipped in the bud does not justify the loss of four years more of time in adopting reforms in the vot ing system, after it is conceded, as it must be, that such reforms are. neces sary. Such a test as our contemporary pro poses means postponement for four ytars, not less. But just such a test could be made with just as good re sults by setting up the machines in this city on a given day and invite the people to go through the form of a regular election. We are ready to guarantee that at least 2,000 voters can be rallied for the purpose, though, far the matter of that, 500 in one pre cinct would be just as good a test, since probably never more than 500 voters will be alloted to a precinct with the machine system in use. But, as the "Record-Union" has al ready said, whatever is done no step should be taken regarding any machine until every avenue leading to possible fraud is closed. This may be done, as we have heretofore suggested, by re quiring all competitors to give guaran tees of prices of machines, charge for use, charge for right of manufacture, etc., before the Legislature takes up the matter of testing or examining any machine. We are still disposed to hold also to our proposition that the Legislature should by vote fix upon no machine. Any device adopted by vote will now be open to the suspicion of having been jobbed upon the Legislature. But that body could provide the necessary legis lation, after having tested all machines presented for competition, so that, say the Governor, Attorney General and Treasurer, or other officials of high sta tion, should constitute the commission to select the machine and flx the terms. It is improbable that under some such an arrangement the State would be robbc-d. Mr. Carl Evans Boyd, in a very able article on "Our Government of Newly Acquired Territory," reviews the his tory of all our acquisitions, and the forms of government provided for them. He reaches the conclusion in his paper in the "Atlantic Monthly" that our new acquired possessions must, because of conditions peculiar to them, be gov erned direct from Washington, with a degree of local self-control at first ex ceedingly small, because the growth of any American population in these parts will be slight for many years. This is probably the # correct conclusion. The new possessions will be neither colo nies nor Territories, but possessions, such as is the District of Columbia. Funeral of George Ambler. The late George Ambler, who died a few days ago, after a brief illness, was buried yesterday. The services took place in the Congregational Church, Rev. J. B. Silcox, the pastor, officiat ing. The pallbearers were: F. Morri son, L. Dubain, Thomas Kelly and E. H. Crimmina. THE HECOBD-TOloy, TfttTSSPAY. JAOTJABY 5, 1899. THEY WENT DOWN THE LINE. NONE OF THE OLD EMPLOYES * REINSTATED. Supervisors Name a New Game Warden, Expert and Janitors —Standing Committees. At the meeting 1 of the Board of Su pervisors yesterday morning Supervis ors Custis, Gillis, Morrison, McLaughlin and Jenkins were present, Curtis pre siding. Ex-Supervisor Dreman was also pres ent and called that fact to the atten tion of the board. STANDING COMMITTEES. • After roll call Chairman Curtis an nounced his committees as follows: Judiciary—Gillis, Jenkins and Morri son. Accounts and Expenditures—Jenkins, Morrison and Gillis. Public Buildings—Gillis, McLaughlin and Jenkins. County Hospital--rMorrison, Mc laughlin and Gillis. Printing—McLaughlin, Jenkins and Gillis. Contracts—Gillis, McLaughlin and Morrison. Roads and Bridges—Jenkins, Mc- Laughlin and Gillis. Education and Schools*—Gillis, Jen kins and Morrison. Insurance —Jenkins, Morrison and Gillis. Chain Gang—McLaughlin, Gillis and Jenkins. Mrs. Austey addressed the board, asking why she had been removed from the work of copying old records. She stated that, although hampered by difficulties, she had performed her work faithfully and well. She had been set at other work, and for that reason had not been able to work steadily at the records. Supervisor Morrison said he had supposted Mrs. Austey had been em ployed on the old records, and did not know she was engaged on other work. Auditor Oohn was requested to state why Mrs. Austey had been requested to work outside of the old records. He re plied, that he had never asked her to do any work and that she* had been put on the other work for practice. She had done her work well and worked faith fully at it. Mrs. Austey said she could have done more work on the old records if she could have continued at it. She was anxious to keep her position, as she had four children to support, and did not wish to have the board feel that she had been derelict in her duties. The matter was then dropped. CHAIN GANG OFFICER. Supervisor Morrison moved that the board proceed l to> elect a chain gang officer in order that the Sheriff might know where he stood. He nominated George F. Wittenbrock. Supervisor Curtis nominated Frank West, and Supervisor Jenkins nominat ed George W. Kelly. "West received the votes of Supervis ors Curtis, Gillis and McLaughlin. Morrison voted for Wittenbrock and Jenkins for Kelly, and West was de clared elected. GAME WARDEN. Nominations for Game Warden were called for, and Supervisor Gillis nomi nated' W. M. Kimber. Supervisor Morrison said there was a doubt as to whether the office of Game Warden existed. He moved that the matter be referred to the District At torney. The motion was lost, and Kimber was elected Game Warden by the votes of Gillis, Jjnkins, McLaughlin and Curtis. Morrison declining to vote without an opinion from the District Attorney. COUNTY EXPERT. Supervisor McLaughlin nominated Tom Ahem for County Expert, and Su pervisor Morrison nominated Joseph Hill, saying he thought it would be well to have no change. Ahem was elected, Morrison alone voting for Hill. COPYIST OF RECORDS. Nominations being in order for Copy ist of Records, Supervisor Morrison said he would like to have the Printing Committee report as to what is the amount of copying recommended done, the books being three. Supervisor McLaughlin said that two books had been copied and the third be gun. He thought there was plenty to be done. He nominated Mrs. Mary C. Cavanaugh. Supervisor Morrison nominated Mrs. Austey, who had been doing the work, saying that he thought it better to give her the job than to have her go to the Howards for support. Miss Cavanaugh was elected, Morri son alone voting for Mrs. Austey. The positions of Comparer of Records (Charles Human) and Copyist of Papers (George Ebert) were passed. The office of Janitor for the Hall of Records was also passed temporarily. COURTHOUSE JANITORS. Supervisor Jenkins moved that the office of Courthouse Janitor be also parsed. He met with no second, and then nominated George W. Bailey, the incumbent, saying he had done his duty well. ' Supervisor McLaughlin nominated Martin Keegan, and he was elected by the vote® of Gillis, McLaughlin and Curtis, Morrison and Jenkins voting for Bailey. For Assistant Janitor Jenkins nomi nated George W. Bailey, and Mc- Laughlin nominated Henry Morse. The latter was elected by the votes of Gillis, McLaughlin and Curtis. OTHER MATTERS. In regard to the road, petitioned for between the Lower Stockton and Free port roads. County Surveyor Boyd ad dressed the board, suggesting the re scission of the board's action and the allowance of a supplemental report, there being some errors in. the report of the viewers. He suggested that the matter be referred to th ? District Attor ney. Supervisor Morrison favored the res cinding the action of the board and starting entirely anew. He so moved and the motion was carried. The original petition was then denied and a new petition will be presented. The board then took a recess till this morning. Auction Sale To-Day. W. H. Sherburn will sell at auction at 10 a. m. to-day, at the residence 509 P street, all the fine household furni ture, consisting of a piano, parlor, bed room and kitchen furniture, carpets, pictures, range, china and glassware; also a horse, cart, phaeton, harness, chickens, etc. to crue a colO nr owe day fake Laxative Bromo Quinine Tablets.

The reception to the St. Paul's Church Vestrymen announced for this (Thursday) evening has been post poned. * BUDD'S LAST ACTS. Commutations and Appointments Cleaned Up. Governor Budd commuted a few more sentences yesterday, and appoint ing a few people to office before retir ing to private life. W. Henshaw and John C. Kirkpat rick were appointed Yosemite Commis sioners. William H. Metson was appointed Park Commissioner for San Francisco, vice Ikying M. Scott, resigned. Albert Dana's sentence was com muted. He had been convioted of mur der in the second degree, but the Gov ernor thought the crime was properly manslaughter, as he had defended the man and knew the .circumstances of the case. William Kelly's sentence for burg lary was commuted on the ground that he had not entered a dwelling-house. but another sort of establishment to commit his offense. He has been in San Quentin for many years. John Craig was set free for forgery because he had been confined for many years and was ill. Francis Ortega was set free for mur der on the ground that he had been in the prison for eighteen years and that his crime was committed when he was but a boy. FRICTION IN THE TREASURY. Green, and Reeves Had a Little Trouble Over the Final Count. There has been some fricton between State Treasurer Green and Treasurer elect Reeves as to the pay of the at taches for remaining over and counting the funds on hand before turning the office over to the new Treasurer. The matter at one time seemed to threaten to become a bone of bitter contention. "We have decided the matter," said Mr. Green yesterday, "by Mr. Reeves agreeing to pay the force for the over time. I got an opinion from the Con troller to the effect that there was no provision of the law by which we could hold over or get pay, so I did not know just how to handle the matter best un til we hit upon this solution. It has always been the habit of the incoming man to have a short month at the out set, his first week's pay going over to the old force for the work of adjusting affairs in the office." Thousands of people passed the Treasury yesterday while the count of .$3,000,000 was in progress, and at one time hundreds of school children stop ped to peep in and see the shining $20 gold pieces which were being scooped into sackst and stored away. ARGUMENTS ENDED. The Union Building and Loan Caaea Submitted. Judge Buckles returns to his Solano County home to-day, and he goes loaded. For nearly four weeks the Judge has sat in Department Two of the Superior Court and listened to an army of lawyers argue the Union Building and Loan cases against the National Bank of D. O. Mills & Co. and the Farmers' and Mechanics' Bank. The arguments in the latter case were concluded yesterday, and the case submitted, and Judge Buckles has a load of memorandums and authorities to take home with him for mental di gestion. Before adjourning court yesterday an order was made continuing all the in dividual suits until April 4th. These are for the return of moneys paid to shareholders in the way of dividends. The points involved in these cases are embraced in the bank cases, and wheth er or not they will ever come to trial depends on the way Judge Buckles de cides the latter. RETURNS TO LAW. The Late Private Secretary Forms a Law Partnership. Peter J. Shields, who has long been Private Secretary to Governor Budd. has formed a law partnership with Hiram' W. Johnson, and will henceforth give his entire attention to his profes sion. Speaking of his plans last night, Mr. Shields said: "I have some regrets in leaving office, of course, but I shall not die or go into complete obscurity, as I have fully determined to devote my time to my profession." Owing to the absence of Governor Budd from the city during almost the entire time of his administration, Mr. Shields transacted a large part of the business of the office, and he made many friends by his courtesy and prompt attention to its) affairs. Andrew Grondona'a Estate. James Clarence Carley has by his attorney, Hiram W. Johnson, petitioned the Superior Court for special letters of administration on the estate of An drew Grondona, deceased. The estate is valued at $6,500.

Women suffering from any form of female weakness are invited to promptly communicate with Mrs. Pinkham, at Lynn, Mass. All letters are received, opened, read and answered by women only. A woman can freely talk of her private illness to a woman; thus has been established the eternal confidence be tween Mrs. Pinkham and the women of America which has never been broken. Out of the vast volume of experience which she has to draw from, it is more than possible that she has gained the very knowledge that will help your case. She asks nothing in return except your good-will, and her advice has relieved thousands. Surely any woman, rich or poor, is very foolish if she does not take advantage of this generous offer of assistance—Lydia E. Pinkham Medicine Co., Lynn, Mass. " The present Mrs. Pinkham's experience in treating female ills is unparalleled, for years she worked side by side with Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham, and for sometime past has had sole charge of the correspondence department of her great busi ness, treating by letter as many as a hundred thousand ailing women a year. hTQH QRADI^ lA/OOD, Curtis <& CO., General Wholesale Agists.

The Class of Dogs Higher and the Nnmber Greater Than Heretofore. Howl and bark and crow, crow and bark and howl. That is what can be heard at Armory Hall now, for the third annual exhibi tion of the State Poultry and Kennel Club in this city opened yesterday, and promises to be a success from the start. The room is a far more comfortable and suitable one for an exhibition of the kind than is the New Pavilion, where the two previous shows were held, and people were not slow to no tice the fact yesterday, many remark ing on it. Being handy to all the car lines is another advantage that will insure the attendance of many who did not attend last year. There is a larger entry of dogs this year than last, also, and the dogs, as a whole are of a higher class than at the other two shows. Sacramento is coming to the front more, also, and the standard of the dogs exhibited by fanciers here is growing better, and will continue to do so year by year hereafter, it is probable. In English setters, Sacramento own ers, W. Wood, shows his fine dog Princewood, J. F. Heenan shows J. O. Flakes, and Frank Kurpinsky shows Queen Thelma, while five fine puppies are shown, C. C. Bonte entering Doc wood, M. J. Dlllman entering Duke wood, R. H. Helms California, and W. L Willis Frost. H. T. Payne of San Francisco enters his champion winner Queen of Counts, and W. B. True of San Jose) enters Nora. In Irish setters the Sacramento en tries are five dogs, and are as follows: F. B. Adams, Conn, on which he places the modest price of $10,000, spot cash; A. J. Vermilya, Ned V.; J. K. Brown, Mike T., John M. Simpensel has Ag gie, and George E. Pierce Swift, both Placerville entries and good dogs. In Gordon setters Ehret Bros, of this city enter Echo Clinton and Clare wood, both first winners at the New York show, but rather larger dogs than are general favorites on this coast. They are fine specimens, how ever. Sprig, entered by Kimball & Upson of this city, is the only Irish water spaniel entry, and he is a beauty and said to be a fine retriever. In pointers W. H. Eckhardt shows his black pointer Nig, a very fine specimen of a rare breed. George Neale of this city shows Queen N, a cham pion winner, and Mollie N., a puppy that is much admired by all the fanciers. John Neubauer of this city shows Rosie M, with a fine litter of seven pups. The big dogs are a fine lot. The only mastiff is Dewey, a fine puppy en tered by Carl Seaman of this city. In St. Bernards the Sacramento en tries are: Mazzini Bros.' Bernardina (rough coated) and Dewey and Vienna (smooth coated). L. J. Rower, Florin, enters Bessie Bernards and Twin Peak Kennels King Menelek, a mag nificent rough coat, and C. A. Smart of Oakland enters Princess Sheperazalle. Fred Allen of Walnut Grove has a fine, smooth coat in the novice class. In Great Danes there are four hand some animals. W. S. Brown of Sac ramento shows Marco, a remarkably good dog. The Twin Peak Kennels show Defender, who is a grand animal, and Lady Ermine and Lady Londes brough. Mr. Martin has a fine troupe of per forming dogs, with which he gives a nightly exhibition. His dogs are known to the public, having been here w}th the Wallace Show. Among them Is a splendid Siberian wolf hound, as yet only a puppy, but one of great promise. Nor should the Happy Family be overlooked, with the monkey gymnast that does all sorts of tricks on the trapeze. There is a display of poultry and pigeons that would do credit to any fair, having many fine specimens among them. The judging will commence this morning, thus giving those present an opportunity to see the dogs In their best form. Not Dr. Mathews' Brother. The report that a brother of t>r. W. R. Mathews died at Chico on Monday was incorrect. It was John C. Mathews, brother of S. J. Mathews, Secretary of the Typographical Union of this city, who died there. The idler is the world's insolvent debtor. TERRIBLE EPIDEMIC OF LA GRIPPE ■~™»""" ■»■ ™ Is Now Raging in All Parts of the United States. Striking Down Its Victims Everywhere.
