UNSIGHTLY LOTS WORK BEGUN IN FRONT OF THE YOUNG HOTEL AND AT KING AND RICHARDS. Work has been commenced on Acting Governor Atkinson's pet plan for con verting two jf the unsigntiy vacum lots In prominent places Into paries un til such time as their owners require them for private purposes. Manager Lake of the Young Hotel leaned over ;the fence of the big lot across the way from the gray stone caravanseray last evening and gave purely unprofessional advice to some men engaged In putting In a three-Inch pipe from the hotel, for the hotel Is going to supply all the wa iter wanted for nothing. This morning ;the pipe line was extended to different parts of the lot anu as soon as mis Is finished, the work of grading will be done bv trusties from the Jail. , A gang of trusties went to work to day on the smaller lot at the Intersec tion of King, Merchant and Richards .streets. For years the place has been ,an eyesore, a dumping place for rub ,blsh and a place for weeds to grow. It will be -leared of all but trees of goo size and then put down In grass. The close proximity of tho lot to the public 'buildings renders the change particu larly desirable. Twenty-flve cents pays for a Want ad In the Star. A bargain. SHOWN FAIR MPROIG COUNTY ACT IS F COMMISSIONERS HAVE OLD ACT UNDER DISCUSSION IMPOR TANT CHANGES SUGGESTED. ' The County Act Commission after many meetings got down to real work 'last night when It took up a considera tion of the net passed by the Legisla ture of 1003. Chapter 2 was first dealt with, it being decided that all the Isl ands should be divided Into the districts as now known and their boundaries i defined by law. Section 4 of Chapter 3 came In for much discussion. It states that each county shall be a body corporate and shall have In addition to the powers specified by the act, such other powers as are "necessary Implied." Chairman Cooper, Commissioners Watson and Stewart all agreed that the section's , wording was too broad as Ideas might ,differ widely on the point of what was "Implied." It was finally decided to .change the sentence to read "such other , powers as are necessarily Implied , therefrom." The portion of the chapter empower ing counties to levy and collect taxes ,vas stricken out. The section charging all county offi cers with notice of the condition of its treasury and the extent of claims against it was expunged and the sec tions regarding the liability of officers were held for further consideration. Upon the question of petitions for the changing of county seats It was decid ed that such petitions would only bo re ceived and voted upon when thirty per cent of the "oters sign. A two-thirds vote will be required for the change. The debatable question as to the clec- , tlon or appointment of county super visors was left over for discussion at next Tuesday's meeting. STOLE CLOCK TO PROVE E A SAN WAS FRANCISCO CITIZEN WHO VERY DETERMINED TO SHOW HE WAS RIGHT. SAN FRANCISCO. July 27. Some men there are. like "Happy Hooligan," who would rather get into a dispute with a policeman than keep out of jail. John Powers is one of these. John met Patrolman Desmond nt about daybreak the other morning, and the trouble ibegnn Immediately. "What time Is it?" he asked. The time of day isn't much of a sub ject to quarrel about, but a man with the determination and .Ingenuity of John 'Powers can make It answer the purpose, all right. "Four o'clock, sir," the policeman po litely answered. "What's that'.'" queried Powers, with the bristling air of n man who feels 1.1s dignity attacked and Is ready to show resentment. "Four o'clock," the policeman said. "I don't 'believe It!" hotly returned the man who was looking for trouble. Desmond gave the questioner a shove that sent him along the sidewalk about fifteen feet with considerable accelera tlon. Then the policeman considered the Incident closed and Sauntered leisurely In the other direction. His argument, from a police point of view, was of the convincing kind. But A man convinced against his will Is of tho same opinion still. And the patrolman"s argument made little Impression on the mind of John Powers. After half an hour of blissful quiet in that early morning time, Policeman Desmond ngaln eheld John, who was beating down townrd him on the star board tack with all his canvas given to the breeze. And John was carrying a decl'load of something, which turned out to be si clock. "I've come back to show you " be gan Powers. "Where did you get that clock?" the policeman demanded, Interrupting him right nt the beginning of his argument, like a man who wanted to dodge the question. "You told me It was 4 o'clock and want to show you that you're wrong, said the helllgerent citizen. "But where did you get the clock, say?" "I got It out of a church, and I'll prove ''Come along with me!" the patrolman commanded, seizing his opponent by the shoulder. "I'll put a charge of bur glary against you." "That's nil right, old man," was the reply, "but I tell you it ain't 4 o'clock' Judge Conlan yesterday found Powers cullty of netty larceny and will pro nounce sentence tomorrow. Nobody knows where the clock was obtained A GLORIOUS FOURTH. The boys of Glldersleeve, Ct., went wild on the Fourth, and as the result the town hall, which was over 200 years old, was "burned to- the ground. RARE BOOKS. W. K.
