THE EXCURSION TO FOLSOM.
VISITING SUPERVISORS PASS A PLEASANT DAT. The Rock Crusher, Big Dam, Pris on and Power Houses All Inspected. Yesterday was a mild, soft day, with very little breeze, and the radiance of the sun tempered by the haze of clouds spread over the heavens; just the day for people to be out of doors, and that it was a luxury to be alive; just the day tor a party to enjoy an ex cursion to some point of interest. The people were ready, and so was the occasion, and in consequence a special train of four carloads left this city at half-past 8 for Folsom Prison. The occupants were the Supervisors of the State, who have been in session here for the past three days, with their wives, and aiso the City Trustees and other invited guests. A jolly party it ■was, too. They were going for a good time, and they knew it. They were full of smiles and good humor, and enjoyed their ride thoroughly. On arriving at the rock-crusher on the prison grounds, the train stopped, and the passengers disembarked to in spect it. Convicts were wheeling rock to it on the cars used for that pur pose, and dropping it into the hopper, which chewed it up as easily as if it were candy, dropping it on the carrier that conveyed it to a bin far above, where it was sifted through screens of different sizes and conveyed by them to bins, whence by opening a door in the bottom it is loaded directly on the cars for transportation to such points ti£ it is ordered for. Such pieces as are liot broken tine enough to pass through the largest screen are returned to a smaller mill to be broken liner. It was an interesting process to those who hud never seen it. and. the visiting Super visors were much .interested in b'th the process and the fact that the crushed rock, more than pays the cost of it to the State, and is furnished to communities at a far less cost than they could procure it before the roc* crusher was set at work. The crowd then walked up to the big dam. climbed the stone parapet along side and watched the water pour over it, albeit there was only a thin sheet of water dropping down, and there seemed to be but little above the dim. it being well filled up with debris. The portion of the pond above the dam where the log boom is has filled up so high that a sandbank occupies the greater part of it, and a few lonely looking logs are stranded there. It is a fair illustration of the result which has always followed the building of dams on torrential streams, the time being gauged by the original hight of the dams and the area behind them for impounding the debris. The river Itself below the dam is so low and narrow in places that one could almost jump across it. and could wade across without wetting the knees, something that the oldest resident has never be fore seen- Back from the dam went the gather ing, and inspected the prison power house, with its ice and electric plants for the use of the prison, the whole grounds being lit up at night by elec tricity, so that a prisoner would have small chance of escape. The visitors were Shown through the prison, find ing much to interest them and listened to a number of selections by the prison hand, of which George Sontag, of Son tag and Evans fame, is a member. Captains Murphy and Baker pointed out to the visitors the various things of interest. An excellent lunch was served by Warden Aull's direction, to which the visitors did ample justice. At 2 o'clock the train started back to Folsom, after three cheers for Warden Aull and the officers had been given by the visitors. As it was about to start, the guards gave the guests an exhibition of the powers of the Gatuns guns and repeating rifles in the guard towers, showing how slim a chance an escaping prisoner would have of get ting away alive. At Folsom the power-house of trie Sacramento Electric. Gas and Railway Company was visited, and the big dynamos excited much admiration. The company scattered around the town, and were welcomed by the residents and a little before 4 o'clock returned to Sacramento, well pleased with the day's excursion. This morning the visitors will *c taken out to visit the County Hospital and other points of interest, although many of them took the train for home last night. They express much grati fication at their reception by the Lfi dies' Committee on Tuesday night and the courteous treatment they have met with, during their stay. They will meet at the Court House at 10 o'clock shari' to visit the Hospital. The Husband Demurs. In the Superior Court yesterday John De Pangher filed his demurrer to the if! |fl:/'i$ k I ADl,ltusted 'fj I wonder that y I V J some women •./ lii get #>?gusted 'j w ' tn medicine . / j \\* aI; J ' ose faith in O. CSo A 1 II the doctors. A j>-cy VvSi. When a woman complains of feeling weak, nervous and despondent, and suffers from headaches, pains in the back and stitches in sides and burning, drajfgingdown sensations, the average physician will attribute these feelings to heart, stomach or liver trouble. For years, possibly, she takes their pre scriptions for these ailments without re ceiving any benefit, then, in final disgust, she throws away drugs, and hopelessly lets matters take their course. A woman who suffers in this way is almost invariably a sufferer from weakness and disease of the distinctly feminine organism. There is an unfailing and inexpensive cure for all troubles of this description. It is Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription. It acts di rectly on the delicate organs concerned, making them well and strong. It heals all internal ulceration and stops debilitating drains. It takes the pressure off the nerves and makes them strong and steady. Under its marvelous merits thousands of women have been made healthy, happy and robust. The "Favorite Prescription" restores weak, nervous, pain-racked women and makes strong, healthy, capable wives and moth ers. With its use all pain and suffering disappear. All good medicine stores sell it ana have nothing else "just as good." Constipation and torpid liver will make the most ambitious man or woman utterly good fbr nothing. Dr. Pierce' 6 Pleasant Pellets cure them. One little " Pellet "is a gentle laxative anct two a mild cathartic. Br.

The Capitol Statuary Was Broken by a Crazy Man. Some weeks ago a portion of a hand of one of the figures in the Columbus marble statuary group in the rotunda of the Capitol was found broken off, and there was considerable speculation indulged in as to who could have been guilty of the outrage. Some of the Capitol officials suspected discharged employes, while others were of the opinion that it was the work of some careless visitor or janitor. Others still expressed the belief that some Spaniard did it to revenge his country against Columbus for having discov ered America. It turns out, however, that the hand of the page was broken by a crazy man. It will be remembered that soon after the statuary had been disfigured an insane man named Charles Curtis Damon was arrested while making a disturbance at the Capitol, and after the usual examination he was commit ted to the Stockton asylum. Damon admits that it was he who broke off the page's fingers, but, of couse, he can give no reason therefor. It was simply the freak of an insane person. '99 CLUB'S RECEPTION. A Banquet and Entertainment on the Twenty-second. The Club of '99' will give its fourth and last reception. at the Crocker Art Gallery on Washington's birthday at 1 p. -m. Besides the banquet, there will be an art view and an orchestral and vocal entertainment. Quite an innovation will be toasts, with a toast, mistress and a long list of responses. The menu may not rival that of some of the old clubs of cities, but the ladies feel sure there will be a flow of soul. The invitations are already out, but owing to the limited seating capacity of the banquet hall subscribers are lim ited to one guest card. 1 Added to the wives of legislators, the company will considerably exceed 200.

Hunicott of Baltimore, who filed an affidavit al leging neglect and mismanagement of the estate by Mrs. Winslow, and that she is a victim of intemperance. The estate consists of a house and lot on M street, near Twentieth, valued at some $.I.<XK>, on which there is a slight incumbrance. THREE PETTY CRIMINALS.

FEBRUARY 18, 1839. ANTI-PRESS LEGISLATION. Some Frank Expressions of the In terior Press—Unwisdom of Bills. San Diego Union: While some of California's lawmakers are seeking to repeal a measure that serves to prevent the bringing of speculative libel suits against newspapers, it is an interest ing fact that the Connecticut Legisla ture is considering and will probably pass substantially the same protective law which is sought to be repealed in this State. A bill has been introduced in the Connecticut Senate, which re quires the plaintiff in a libel suit to file a bond in the sum of $500 before he brings his aftion. When the final de cision is in favor of the defendant, he will be entitled to recover from the plaintiff a reasonable sum for counsel fees and as compensation for the trouble and loss'of time he has been put to. The plaintiff's bondsmen will be accountable for the payment of such sums. A RIDICULOUS IDEA. Concerning the ridiculous bill requir ing every libelous article in a newspa per to be signed by the writer, the Los Angeles "Express" pertinently remarks that "inasmuch as no reputable news paper willfully or knowingly prints li belous matter the monstrous absurdity of the bill is manifest. The author wants to force the new-spaper men to make themselves accessories before the fact, in a manner that is dreadful to contemplate^" THAT MURDER BILL. San Diego Tribune: If one of the bills before the Legislature should be come a law, newspaper men would have less protection than quail, ducks, deer and other game. With the law pro posed the' public could shoot at jour nalists every day in the year if inclined to do so. There would be no closed season when scribes could for twenty four hours even feel sure that their skins would not be punctured by the bullets or buckshot of some irate reader. At present the press protects the peo ple from criminals, imposters, scala wags in public offices and other evils. Suppression of this protection would insure the tremendous increase of crime of all sorts. Intelligent people do not need to be argued with on this point. Muzzle the press and criminals in pub lic and private life would start up as thickly as mushrooms after a rain. No doubt the press makes mistakes, but the evil arising from such errors is aa 1 to 10,000 when compared with the evils that would suddenly flourish should the present privileges of news papers be curtailed. Sacramento legislators will do better to devote their talents to strengthening our laws for prompt and effective pun ishment of murderers instead of wast ing the State's money with bills incited by spiteful, personal spleen against reputable newspapers. TO LEGALIZE MURDER. Tulare Times: The anti-cartoon bill and the one making it legal to kill edi tors will probably fail to pass the Legislature, but if they should pass, we do not for a moment believe that Gov ernor' Gage will permit his name to be identified with such freak legislation. There are occasions when a shotgun seems to be the only way the individ ual can defend himself from the attacks of certain newspapers, but thsy are exceptions. ALL AGAINST IT. Stockton Mail: Mr. Porter Ashe seems to have gone to the Legislature with the idea of doing what harm he could to the newspapers. His bill to relieve bringeTS of libel suits from the present need of filing bonds for costs is one of the most maliciously unjust measures ever presented in the Capitol and might property be entitled "A bill to encourage shystering and to prevent responsible men from becoming news paper publishers." The press of the State is unanimously against the bill. LICENSE TO KILL EDITORS. Pomona Times: A bill is pending in the Legislature designed to make it safe to kill editors. There may be some merit in the bill, but it is unconstitu tional and all editors are opposed to being unconstitutionally killed. Per haps it has not occurred to the advo cates of this bill that some alleged lawmakers and alleged statesmen de serve to be killed on general principles as well as for specific deeds. If civil ization calls for a law of this kind, this one needs amendment so as to include members of all occupations. Even then it be imperfect. Every pro fession and calling includes men whose lives are a constant menace to the pub lic welfare, but who is to decide which are the ones? WILLARD MEMORIAL SERVICE. Exercises TO-MOl row Afternoon, at the Congregational Church. Memorial'services in honor of the late Frances E. Willard will be held at 3:o0 o'clock on Sunday at the Congrega tional Church, when the following ex ercises will take place: Orchestra music, hymn, "How Firm a Foundation"; reading of the 14tith Psalm, by Rev.

Powers, Grand Com mander of the Grand Commandery of California Knights Templar; George B. McKee, Grand Captain General; John B. De Jarnett. Grand Sword Bearer and Inspector of the Second District, arrived from Oroville yesterday morn ing, and last night attended a meeting of Sacramento Commandery, No. 2. They will accompany Sacrament O) Com mandery this afternoon on its excursion to Placerville. The party will leave the city at 5 o'clock this afternoon for the El Dorado town, where the order of the templar will be conferred to-night. The com mandery will meet at the hall at 4 o'clock and march to the depot. Young People's Societies. The union meeting of the Young People's Societies of this city will be held in the Congregational Church to morrow at 6 p. m., instead of the United Brethren Church, as heretofore under stood. TO-MORROWS COURSING. Some Hot Races Are Promised at the Park. To pick the winner from the twenty fast and clever dogs entered for to morrow's coursing would indeed be a hard matter. Ordinarily such a feat would puzzle the best posted, leashman, but where the dogs are so evenly matched, would be next to impossible. Pride of Arizona, always a match for the fastest dogs in this city has not been seen in a course under the new management. He will be well worth watching, and will be a dangerous com petitor at the finals. Cricket, another good performer of late, will, no doubt, dispute with the best of them for a portion of the purse.-- Little I Am is reported to be in the pink of condition, and with her won derful burst of speed and cleverness will be a hard one to send back to the kennel before the race is finished. The management has added a grand match race between H. O. Buckman's line sapling, H. O. 8., and L. A. & Y. Kennel's Fashion Plate. The admirers of H. O. B. are not satisfied with the showing made by their favorite in the race last week, and they contend that but for the fall he received he would have been able to defeat Fashion Plate for second money. The latter's per- formance on that day was simply per fect, and her owners have faith in her to defeat H. O. 8., and have placed $50 on their flyer. It will be a race well worth seeing, and as it is to be the best two in three it will be a test of speed as well as of endurance. R. E. de Lopez of Pleasanton, whose kennels are among the largest in the country, has been spending the last few days in Sacramento, and is very much pleased with the outlook for coursing in this city. The club has received some very valuable advice from Mr. de Lopez as to the manage ment of the park, and a number of im provements have been made under his direction. He is thinking of bringing some of his world famed flyers here, and it would be a treat indeed to see dogs whose value is placed in the thous ands compete on the local coursing grounds. The sport for to-morrow will com mence at 11 a. m. sharp, and will run throughout the day. The G and H street cars carry passengers direct to the grounds. J. H. Haley will be In the saddle, while William Landls will see that the dogs get an even breakaway. DOUBLE RUNAWAY. How a Swill Cart and Vegetable Wagon Pooled Issues. The funniest kind of a runaway took place on Fifth street yesterday. A team hauling a wagon loaded with swill and garbage started on a wild stamped? over near I street and scattered the contents of the wagon liberally along that thoroughfare. Between J and X streets the wagon locked wheels from the rear with a Chinese vegetable outfit, and the Chi naman's horse took fright and dashed off. With the vehicles locked together the horses-went in company, and the way the swill and vegetables were dis tributed was a caution. The owners did not find it necessary to call out blood hounds to follow the scent of the runaways, for even a per son "wid a cold id; his head" could have trailed them by the odor. Baseball To-Morrow. The Alkalies will play the Tesla Coal Company's team a game of baseball on Sunday at Fifteenth and C streets, comn-encing at 10 o'clock, for a purse of $25. The pitcher for the Alkalies will be the old reliable John Buckley, who says his wing is "owl right" once more. Following is the line up: Alkalies'—W. Hilbert, catcher; J. Buckley, pitcher; A. Just, first base; B. Hilbert, second base; Freiseke, short stop; E. Clark, third base; C. Hamer, left field; M. Magner. center field; N. Cunningham, right field. TeslaS' —Godfrey, pitcher: Richards, catcher; Schoenberger, first base; A. MeGuire, second base; Harkness, third base: Demmison short stop; Williams, left field; Spargo, center field; J. Me- Guire, right field. A Veteran's III Luck. D. J. Simmons, the well known auc tioneer, survived the perils of battle during the war of the rebellion, only to\ meet with disaster in the evening of his life, and far removed from war's alarms. He is now confined to his bed from injuries received by stepping through a hole in a defective old-style side walk on J street, near Eleventh. His leg was badly lacerated. Stole an Overcoat. Johni Kelly is locked up for vagrancy. He is an all-round good-for-nothing, and the jail is the place for him. Yes terday he stole a rancher's overcoat from the latter's buggy, and Officer Bagley gave chase and caught him In the Plaza. The farmer lives twenty miles out, and did not want to come to town again to-day as a witness, so the larceny charge will be allowed to go. Governor Signs Bills. Governor Gage yesterday signed a bill prohibiting suits against the State by counties for percentages on tax collec tions. He also signed a bill that permits the Bohemian Club of San Francisco to buy 100 acres of land. Another bill that met his favor ex tends notarial terms to four years. Women on Habeas Corpus. Judge Johnson wiU this forenoon hear the habeas corpus petition of the two Japanese women who were arrested and committed at Walnut Grove for having no "visible" means of support. Suit for Divorce. Emily J. Eskridge, by her attorneys, Hinkson & EMiott, has begun an action for divorce from Charles J. Eskridge.

More than forty person*- have pro fessed religion, some of whom will be baptized on Monday evening. Mr. Gal lahorn is a. tower of strength as a Bible expositor and gospel preacher. Mr. Boyd's manner is humorous and pathetic by turns. He conducts the singing by the large choir and congre gation with great skill, and his solos are always effective. The meetings will continue every day at 2:30 and 7:30. Escaped From the Chaingang. While the chaingang was at work outside of town on Thursday a va grant named Frank Clark got away. He has spent three terms in the peni tentiary and is a thief and burglar. He will probably keep away from Sacra mento hereafter. An Eyesore Removed. The police have locked up Hattiet Cof fey, who will respond to a charge of being a common drunkard. She is a disgusting sight on the street, ana should be given the limit. Will Start at Ten.

It will till his veins with pure blood, drive away dyspep sia, and clear up his tired brain.
