THE PYKE OPERA COMPANY. •Tin: Queen's Lace Handker chief" Sit the Grand. Strauss' sonorouß music in the charm ing opera, The Queen's Lace Handker chief, was excellently rendered by the Pyke troupe last night at tke Grand Opera House. The principal roles were cast as follows: "King," Miss Jeannie Winston; "Queen," Miss Louise Man fred; "Donna Irene," Miss Tellula Evans; "Cervantes," Mr. C. M. Pyke; "Premier," Sam'l W. Keene; "Don Sancho," Louis DeLange; "Minister of War," Mr. Alex. Clark. The other characters were very fittingly cast. The costuming of the piece was all that could be desired. All the roles partioularized above were done in a moat acceptable manner. Miss Winston looked "every inch a king" and sang in i xcellent voice. Miss Man fred was really charming aa the "Queen" and sang with sweetness and expression. Both their "Mujesties" dressed exqui sitely. Miss Tellula Evans was heard for the first time, and ber sweet voice and fine execution made a most pleasing impres sion. She has gone par sallum to the top notch of popularity with the people of this oity. Her rendition of the musio in her score was all but perfect. This charming little lady is no stranger to California, being born in this State, and she is a native whom our people may well be proud of. Her reputation in the East is thoroughly established. Mr. Fyke was in fine voice, and hav ing a good deul to do was heard to great advantage—which could not be said ot the role he took on the previous even ing, as he had but little to show him self in. Mr. Keeno made a hit all along he line, in the role of the "Premier, and won new laurela at the hands of the public. DeLange added largely to the popularity he won on his first appearance. His topical song, "Birdi«," took the house by storm. Mr. Clark as tho "Minister of War" moulted no feather as compared with the part he was cast to in Prince Melhusalem. He fitted, or rather did not fit his armor, to a moat ridiculous degree. All the solos were wall sung particularly those by the "King" and "Queen" in the last act. The ensembles went with great spirit and accuracy alt through the opera; aud the verdict of tbe people is uuanimous for the Pyke troupe.

County Land. The Supervisors yesterday refused an otter of $200 per front foot for a lot of land owned by the county on Buena Vista street, near where the new court house will be erected. Mr. Rowan ssid that the county could do better and he hoped to be able to get $360 per Lot or more after the court-house is built; iv fact, he thought he could get that for it now. The was no necessity for money at the prest time, and if they should sell now the money would lie idle with out bringing in any return. The Super visors thought that if there was a possi bility of a rise in value the county should have the benefit, as well as any one else. Wben the court-house is built value of laud all aronnd will be enhanced and until then no money is likely to be needed. The sale of county lands will have to be by auction and no offer can be taken exoept at a publio sale, which will be duly announced. Tulare's Boom. Tho Viaalia Times says: A few days sinoe Colonel Geo. H. Smith, a prom inent lawyer of Los Acgeles, purchased the Hays & Eleanor tract of land, tea* miles south of Visalia, consisting of 4,000 acres, paying therefor the sum of 950,000, or $12.50 per acre. Last week Thcs. Creighton sold his Elk Bayou ranch to E Bennett & Son, of Topeka, Kansas, for the sum of $64,000. There are -000 acres of land in the tract. It will be remembered that only a few weeks since J. Goldman purchased tha Stokes ranch, seven miles west of Visalia, the consideration being $62,000. This makes $186,000 wortit of property that has been transferred in these three tranaactiona aloue, within a month, say ing nothing of the many small transfers involving sums ranging from $1000 to $20,000. It is not positively known what Col. Smith's object is iv reference to tha Hays' traot; some persons suppose that he has bought it merely as a speculation, while others see in it an extension af a railway through this valley tbat will pass over this land. Whatever tbe ob ject, Mr. Smith has secured a bargain on which he will be enabled to double ar treble hla money within a short space of I time. Our Annual. NO. 152. FOREIGN.
