"From tbe outset I saw that tbe bill would be especially injurious to us, as it mitigated against the cheap long haul, and we Californians have the longest hauls in the country.

Warde as "Ualba, tbe Tua representation of Galba, the Glad iator, at tbe opera house last nigbt drew quite a fair-sized audience. This piece was adapted from the Frenoh of M. A, Saumet, expressly for Mr. Warde. It differs Tory materially from The Gladiator written for Edwin Forrest and familiar to the present generation as one of John McCullough's favorite pieces. Mr. Warde's version is replete with strikiug situations and highly dramatic effects, 'the manners of Rome at tbe time when tbe Christian martyrs were devoured in the arena by wild beasts, "to make a Roman holiday," are gi apbically depictt d in this piece; the bloodthirsty brutality of tbe Koman people, the licentiousness of the nobles and tbe inoontiuency of tbe women of rank, give an accurate picture of the general demoralization of the "Mistress of the World" on the eve of the great moral and religions revolu tion that took place at the close of the second century. It is only at thisjsfage of trausition that the stiriing and incon gruous incidents of this tragedy oould take place. It shows up the brutality and vices of the Pagan in contrast with the patient, suffering and enduring vir tues of the Christian. "Galba" is the most famous gladiator in Rome. His arm has always proved invincible in the arena; but he is weighed down with a great sorrow, and nurses a deep revenge. The Empress "Faustina" had caused Ihe cruel murder of his Wife. His daughter is brought into the arena to euffer death, because she is a Christian. The father has not seen her for years. He is appointed to kill her, and as he is abont to give tbe blow, makes the dis covery that she is his own child. The mob howls for her blood; bnt the' E mpress finds that an oracle had deolared that the life of her son was myster iously connected with that of the Chris tian girl, and that with her death would cease the boy-Emperot's life. She, of course, beoomes anxions that the girl should ba saved. But the father finally executes his daughter with his owu hand, rather than let her be torn to pieces by the mob. These incidents are the ground wot k of the plot. They afford material to bring out the qual ities of a good actor, and Mr. VVarde throws a strength and vigor into his part, at well as an intellectuality of treatment, that ohain the interest of the audience tbronghout. Miss Eugenic Blair, as the Christian girl, gives a strik ing presentation of a role at once beauti ful, tender, illuminated by a true faith, living not in this, but a higher world, and ready to suffer martyrdom for the take of her creed. It was a most fin ished aud realistic personation, and divided with "Galba" the honors of tbe evening. To-night: Damon a. id Pythian. — TROOPS' OKDKBED OCT. Burial of Alex. Mitchell. The parlois of tbe Congregational Church were filled by a pleasant company last evening, the occasion being a library reception given by the Ladies' Auxiliary Committee of Ibe Young Men's Christian, Association. The object of the recep tion was to increase the library of tbe Association, each guest being armed with one or more volumes to be pie sented for this purpose.

Mr. Bovard advanced several helpful and suggestive thoughts about the compan ship of books and how to read. A so cial followed and refreshments were served by the ladies. Nine hundred and twenty-two books, well selected, were added to the library. About a quarter past 11 o'clock last night Special Officer Barber, of the Club Theatre, heard a row going on at the cor uer of Arcadia and Main sheets, and on approaching saw that a man known aa ' Shorty" was the cause. Barber toek hold of Shorty to keep him quiet, and shoved him off the sidewalk, and as he did so a man named George C. Thomp son, alias Johnson, walked up from be hind and struck Barber over the head with a revolver, stunning him for an in stant. As Barber turned around, some of the bystanders called to him to look out, as Thompson had a "gur,"and would shoot.
