the 6th inst_, authorizing the appoint
ment of an attorney to carefully and

bonded debt of Sacramento and the lit

CONFIRMATIONS.
The nomination of Richard Trengrove
as foreman of Engine No. 1 was con
firmed unanimously, as those of
J. O. Meara as assistant foreman, N.
JL Dunphy an extra man.
COMMITTEE REPORTS.
The Chief of Police called attention to
the condition of the awning at 312 X
street, which he said was> rotten and he
also stated that no attention had been
paidi to his- notice given to the owner of
the property. The matter was referred
to the Chief Engineer.
The private contract between T. M.
Burns and property owners on Fif
teenth street, between R and S, for
grading the street, was approved by the
board.
An application by property owners for
the extension of the main on Seventh
street to the alley between D and E,
•was referred to the Sewer Committee.
Chief of Police Dwyer requested the
passage of an ordinance requiring all
dealers in second-hand goods to keep a
record book, open to inspection by Sher
iffs and police officers, in which shall
be kept a description of all articles
bought by them, with the price paid
for them. The ordinance was referred
to the Police Committee and the Cor
poration Counsel.
In regard to the proposed ordinance
for licensing business men Trus
tee Dolan said he thought the or
dinance not a good one and that he
should report adversely to it.
Trustee Tebbets said the ordinance
would put .all firms, large and small, on
an equality in proportion to their sales.
He should move the adoption of the or
dinance.
Trustee Dolan said that the present
ordinance provides a license for anyone
selling $100 a month, while everyone
knows that no man could live on sales
of $100 a month, and that all must sell
at least three or four times that
amount. It was aimed at one particu
lar store and, although he was not
championing that store, he felt that a
store that was paying a license on
$70,000 sales had to carry a large stock,
on which it pays taxes and on which
It loses interest on the amount not sold.
He thought the license should be in
creased on sales beyond $70,000.
Trustee Tebbets thought the ordi
nance would tend to equalize the bur
dens of the small and large stores.
Trustee Devine favored protecting;
the small dealers from the department
stores.
It was decided that the proposed or
dinance be published for three weeks,

in order that the people may know
what is proposed.
The argument became one ' for and
against department stores, on Devine's
motion, that the Clerk write to the City.
Clerk of Chicago for a copy of the Il
linois law regarding department stores.
The motion was carried l .
A resolution of intention to improve
Tenth street from N to V with a coat
of macadam, at a cost of 40 cents a
front foot, the citY to pay for all inter
sections, was passed.. ;.
Trustee Tebbets moved to reconsider
the vote by which Charles Keifer was
refused a night license for his saloon
at Fourth and X streets. The motion
carried and the license was granted,
Trustee Dolan voting no and Trustee
McKay not voting.
The matter of getting a kettle for
heating bitumen for the streets was re
ferred to the Street Committee and
Superintendent of Streets, to report
next week.
A discussion arose over the placing
on file of the message of the Mayor ap
pointing Clinton L. White and it was
finally received and placed on file.
OFFICER BAILEY'S TRIAL.
The charges preferred by Chief of Po
lice Dwyer against Officer Joseph W.
Bailey was taken up, Trustee Tebbets
in the Chair, and the Board went into
executive session and had a long debate
on the matter.
When the Board opened the doors,
Trustee Devine said that while he did
not vote for Officer Bailey when he
was elected on the force, he wished to
be lenient, on account of his family.
He realized, however, that the officer
had been guilty of gross misconduct
and had violated the rules of the de
partment. Discipline must be sus
tained. He moved, therefore, that the
officer be suspended, for thirty days
from the date of his trial and ten days
additional for his violation of the. rules.
The motion was carried.
The Superintends; nit of Streets was in-!
structed to buy $99 worth of six-inch
water pipe. He was also instructed to
investigate the condition of the gutter
on the south side of X street, between
Seventh and Eighth, and fix it.
The Board then adjourned.
A.W. UPSON DISCHARGED.
There Was Nothing Criminal in
His Deal With Look Hoy.
Judge Johnson lost no time yester
day in dismissing the charge of em
bezzlement on which A. W. Upson has
been held to answer. From the pre
sentation of facts made to the court
there was absolutely no criminal ele
ment in the case.
Upson, who was a dealer In produce,
poultry, etc., last fall borrowed $100
from Look Hoy, the Chinese inter
preter, to be used in a turkey, deal,
believing there was money to be made
in buying a certain lot of fowls and
selling them a.t holiday prices. He
failed to secure the turkeys, however.
Upson had given his note to Hoy for
the sum,due, but was not able to ray
it when the latter made demand there
for. Look Hoy then had Upson ar
rested on a charge of embezzling the
$100.
It seems to have been purely a busi
ness transaction, Upson borrowed the
money and gave his note for it, and
the complainant's proper redress would
have been a civil suit to recover on the
note. Judge Johnson saw at once that
there was nothing more than that in
the case, and promptly ordered the
charge dismissed.

THE KECOKD-UUIOJS, SACRAMENTO, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1899.
HO! FOR THE SOUTHERN SEAS
SACRAMENTO COLONISTS FOR
THE LADRONES.
Alleged Movement on Foot to Start
a Settlement on Guam
Island.
Although the alleged scheme has
been kept very secret, it is skid that
this city bids fair to be represented by
the first American colony to migrate to
the South Seas and take up their future
home) in the Ladrone Islands, one of the
new possessions of Uncle Samuel. One
of the men concerned in the proposed
colony said last night to a "Record-
Union" reporter:
"The place chosen is the island of
Guam, the largest of the Ladrone
group, and whose climate, soil and pro
ductions are nearly identical with those
of Hawaii, and whose main topography
is a nearly level plain, rising in places
on a gentle slope to the mountains. The
soil is of a sandy nature, is marvei
ously rich and productive, and is suit
ed to the growth of rice, sugar, coffee,
cocoa and vanilla beans, coooanuts,
pineapples and all kinds of tropical
fruits and melons.
"The company now being formed is
comprised of many well-known young
married men of this city, who will
shortly incorporate a company under
the laws of California with a capital of
$100;000, the shares being placed at
$10 each.
"Early in June they will leave San
Francisco in the barkentine Ruth for
their future homes, where .they will es
tablish a trading store; and secure a.
number of plantations for the cultiva
tion of such products as will become a
paying proposition.
"These products will be conveyed to
San Fraanciseo by the Ruth, which is
to be a portion, of the corporation's out
fit, and which is already engaged in a
similar trade with the Caroline Islands.
The intention is to absorb all the pro
ducts of this group of islands, and di
vert it from Europe to the San Fran
cisco market.
"When the scheme was first proposed
some of the parties applied for aid and
information to the Chamber of Com
merce of San Francisco, which, after
due inquiries, referred them to the Cap
tain of the Ruth, his report on the cli
mate and growing capacity of the La
drone group was so encouraging that
the young men have fully determined
on their future course and are hope
ful that a large supply of American
push and enterprise, rightfully applied,
will result in making the Ladrones one
of the most valuable of Uncle Sam's
new- possessions, with a corresponding
financial return for those directly con
cerned.
"There are fifteen islands in the La
drone group, the population of four of
which is some 9,000 souls. These are
mostly natives, though there are a few
Spanish families and three English
speaking persons among them. The
more northern islands of the group are
covered with a dense growth of valua
ble hardwood trees, including mahog
ony, sandal wood, etc. Along the
coast and small inland ponds the large
numbers of teal, curlew and plover
make the islands a paradise for wicg
shots.
"Guam will be a touching point of
the proposed .trans-Pacific cable. At
the present time the gunboat Benning
ton is engaged in a survey of its har
bor for the purpose of preparing for the
erection of wharves and a coaling
plant, for the building of which bids
have already been advertised.
"The cruiser San Franacisco will be
permanently stationed at this point,
and her commander. Captain Leary,
has been appointed by the President
Governor of the group.
. "Under such bright auspices, with
powerful Governmental protection, the
Sacramento colonists hope to not only
carve out their own fortunes, but will
make one of our new possessions a val
uable adjunct to the trade of the Pa
cific Coast and the country at large."
OUT OF MANILA BAY.
A Relic Fished Up From One of
the Spanish Wrecks.
In the show-window of Kirk, Geary
& Co. on J street, is displayed an in
teresting relic of the engagement in
Manila Bay last spring, when Admiral
Dewey made a submarine navy of the
Spanish fleet. It is a 4x5 camera of
the "cartridge kodak" variety that was
fished up from the wreck of the Maria
Christina, the flagship of Admiral
Montejo.
The long immersion had stripped the
leather covering from the kodak, leav
ing the wood exposed but all intact,
even to the bellows. The cement that
held the lens had been dissolved, and
the glass is missing, but the diaphragm
and mechanism of the shutter are still
there, though considerably rusted. •
The rubber tube and bulb constitut
: ing the pneumatic attachment by which
the shutter was operated are as service
able as ever. Altogether the relic is
one that will interest anyone, but es
pecially photographers. It was pro
cured in San Francisco from among a
number of relics of the naval batttle
brought over by a returned officer.
LOCKED UP.
Isaac Westfall Imagined There
Was a Reward for His Capture.
Isaac Westfall, who said he lived at
Edgewood, Siskiyou County, came into
Sheriff Johnson's office yesterday, ask
ing if there was a big reward for his 1
capture.
He said people had been shooting at
him and wanted to arrest him, and he
had gone to the Governor's office to
find out whether or not he had offered
a big reward for his capture, but was
informed that he had not, and was re
ferred to the Sheriff's office. As the
man seemed to be on the verge of de
lirium tremens, he was searched us a
precaution, and, a big Colt's revolver
being found on him, he was locked up
for safety.
LULU LUELLYN'S CASE.
She is Under Examination for
Shooting Jennie Turner.
The preliminary examination of Lulu
Luellyn, the colored woman who
shot Jennie Turner, another negress,
began in the City Justice's Court yes
terday afternoon, and will bei continued
to-day.
The prisoner is making the defense
that she was attacked, and that the
shot she fired was in self-defense.-
DEFECTIVE COMPLAINT.
W. J. Hnsted's Demurrer Sustained
by Justice Henry.
Justice Henry yesterday decided that
the complaint in which W. J. Husted
was charged with criminal libel was de
fective, and he sustainedjthe demurrer,
with leave to amend.
Husted is the person who acknowl
edged the authorhip of certain circulars
distributed during the late campaign in
which slanderous accusations were
made against the women employed in
the State Book Bindery, though he
claimed that his original copy had
been added to by another person who
edited it.
A FAMILY BEREAVED.
Death of One of Sacramento's
Truest Women.
The many friends of Mrs. Dr. C. T.
Milliken are grieved to learn of her
death. Mrs. Milliken was a daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. M. H. Johnson, a na
tive of this State, and but 28 years of
age. She was a woman of rare sweet
ness of disposition and most charming
character.
It was as wife and mother, in the
light of her home, that her qualities
were best known and appreciated, and
by her husband and children her loss
will be keenly felt.
Iroquois Delegates.
D. W. Oarmichael and P. A. Byrne
go to San Francisco to-day a® dele
gates to the State Conference of Iro
quois Clubs, which meets on the 22d.

row. They are: Frank Lyman, Peter
Flaherty, John W. Keating, Judge J.
W. Hughes, E. I. Woodman, Judge A.
C. Hinkson and Louis Vogel.
Kingsbury Bests Solomon.
Samuel Kingsbury was arrested for
battery last night, the charge being
that he collided with Mark Solomon in
a manner that required medical repar
ation. The men disputed over the dis
tribution of perquisites, and Solomon's
nose was mutilated in the whirlwind of
passion following.
Darwin Goes to Folsom.
Deputy Sheriff Charles Schwilke yes
terday took to Folsom Prisons James
Darwin, who the other day pleaded
guilty to burglary in the second degree
and was sentenced to five years' impris
onment.
With Ball and Bat.
An interesting game of ball was
played Sunday between the employes
of Wood, Curtis & Co. and Henderson,
Brown & Co. As a result the flag over
the latter's store was" at half-mast yes
terday. Score, 21 to 4.
Joseph Black a Vagrant.
Joseph Black was found guilty of va
grancy in the City Justice's Court yes
terday. He was allowed to "float" out
of town.
Is the Steam Locomotive Doomed?
Men who know say that in the next
ten years steam locomotives will disap
pear and electric motors will supplant
them. They also say that with the new
motive power trains will rush along at a
minimum speed of 100 miles an hour. This
. will prove a blessing to those who wish
to go quickly from one point to another,
but no more so than Hostetter's Stom
ach Bitters has proved a blessing to
those who wish to go quickly from sick
ness to health. The Bitters act at once
upon stubborn cases of, dyspepsia, indi
gestion, biliousness and liver complaint.
They improve the appetite, quiet the
nerves, and induce sound, refreshing
sleep. The trial of a bottle will afford
convincing proof. Sold at all drug

THE EXCELENCE OF SYRUP OF FIOS
is due not only to the originality and
simplicity of the combination, but also
to the care and skill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes
known to the California Fig Syrup
Co. only, and we wish to impress upon
all the importance of purchasing the
true and original remedy. As the
genuine Syrup of Figs is manufactured
by the California Fig Syrup Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding the worthless
imitations manufactured by other par
ties. The high standing of the Cali
fornia Fig S*Rup Co. with the medi
cal profession, and the satisfaction
which the genuine Syrup of Figs has
given to millions of families, makes
the name of the Company a guaranty
of the excellence of its remedy. It is
far in advance of all other laxatives,
as it acts on the kidneys, liver and
bowels without irritating or weaken
ing them, and it does not gripe nor
nauseate. In order to get its beneficial
effects, please remember the name of
