THE SUNSET SLOPE.
Good School Teachers Have a Life Tenure. MISS KBHNEDx'i* VICTORY. The Warner Ranch Case on Trial at San Diego—Racing Programmes. Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald. San Francisco, January 9. —Miss Kate Kennedy, who in 1887 lost her po sition of Principal of the North Cosmo politan Grammar school, by order of the Board of Education, was today rein stated by an opinion of the Supreme Court affirming Judge Hunt's judgment. She will also realize about $5,000 back pay, and Tier successor. Miss Stinson, now Principal of the Cosmopolitan school, will have to vacate. The Supreme Court holds, in brief, that under the statutes a school teacher against whom no possible charges can be found is not an employee who can be dismissed or removed at pleasure. Jus tices Fcx and McFarland dissent from the opinion. The opinion of the Court is altogether based on Section 1,793 of the Political Code, as follows: "Holders of city certi ficates are eligible to teach in the cities :n which such certificates were granted, in schools of grades corresponding to the grades of such certificates, and when elected shall be dismissed only for viola- ' tion of the rules of the Board of Educa tion, or for incompetency, unprofessional 1 or immoral conduct. The holders of ( spacial certificates are eligible to teach J the special studies mentioned in their ' certificates in all schools in the cities in \ which such certificates were granted." ' In answer to the objection that in case j a teacher cannot be dismissed by the 1 Board of Education, that his position will bo virtually one for life, the Court * holds: "This certainly cannot be of ( danger to the efficiency of the schools, c because the teacher can ably maintain t his position while competent and faith- i ful." c COAST HORSEMEN.

BASE El' AL. VS DOWNEY. The Famous «;»•■<■ on Trial at San Diego. San Dieoo, January 9.—The case of H. T. Gage et al. against ex-Governor John G. Downey is now on trial in this city. It involves the title to a large portion of the noted Warner ranch in this county. John Rains, father of the heirs con testing the present suit, and who was murdered in 18G3, was at his death the owner of the entire Warner grant and one-half of tbe Fortillo grant. His widow claimed that (he amount loaned by Rains on the Warner ranch was her separate property, and that tho fore closure of the mortgage, whereby the ranch came into the possession of Rains, vested the title of the property in her. Tae Oourt decided in her favor, and she deeded the entire prop erty to her children, but subse quently had the deed annulled and con veyed the property to 0. B. Howard and others, and from them Governor Downey and tho Merchants' Exchange Bank of San Francisco derived title to the prop erty. These partios claimed that the Portillo grant was conveyed to them by the same deed conveying the Warner grant, and Judge McNoaly decided so, but the Supreme Court re versed tbe decision, declaring that the title of the Rains heirs to the Portillo grant was not affected, and that they are entitled to recover the interest of Rains in the same. The case is now being tried in accordance with this ruling. HUN BY ELEIUTRICITY. Tlie nanimoth Electric Plant In tbe Nevada Mine.
