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 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

The Famous «;»•■<■ on Trial at San
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
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.
