San Francisco, April 29.—The Chronicle will to-morrow publish exhaustive crop re ports from all sections of the State showing that the wheat is in good condition, and that the rumors of damage to the new grain at present is without foundation. Only four counties report the presence of the grain bug, and there the damage to the wheat is slight. The heavy rains of last month brought out the wheat in line style, and though the crop is not so large, it will be fully equal to last year. The increase in the acreage of wheat may he broadly stated at twenty per cent. From all the big wheat growing coun ties the reports indicate more than an aver age crop. The southern counties suffered the most by drought, but what they will lose in wheat they will make up in fruit. The fruit crop will be the greatest ever known in the State. Napa county alone expects to make three million gallons of wine. Barley and hay are both light, hut there will he enough to feed stock. Taken altogether the outlook is good for a prosperous year for the Califor nia farmer.

Mr. Raum replied that no permission had been given to deliver stamps to any one or anywhere prior to mid night Monday, and that if such a thing were done it would be a violation of the law. Louisville, Ky., April 30.— The Internal Revenue office is open to-night, and the clerks are busy filling out tobacco stamps. The sale begins on the stroke of twelve.

Washington, April 30.—The Secretary of War said to-night that orders were sent to Gen.

Chicago, April 30.—The Western Union Telegraph company tiled a hill here to-day to enjoin the city authorities from severing the wires and removing the poles of the company under the ordinance which goes into effect to-morrow, and thus avert the action taken against the Mutual Union com pany two months ago. The company in its bill combats the legality of the ordinance from various standpoints, and asserts that it has acquired vested rights in the city, and that the theory of underground telegraph is impracticable at present. To obviate the complaint of the numerous wires in the streets the company shows that it is rapidly ieplacing the present wires with cables car rying from ten to thirty-six wires each. It finally asserts that the threat to enforce the ordinance was not made in good faith on the part of the city, as the authorities do not contemplate removing the fire alarm tele graph wires now strung in various portions of the city. The hearing on the application for an injunction has been postponed, the counsel for the city agreeing that in the meantime no action will he taken to the detriment of the company. Married.
