*ac Oakland Water Front Is Pnbllo
Oakland, Cal., Jan. 24.—The superior

motion for a non-suit in the case of the

Oakland, tho* throwing the Water Front
company ont of court. The decision is
based on the recent ruling of the Su
preme court in the Chicago lake front
case.; The Water Front company
claimed title to the land in Oakland
fronting on the bay worth several mil
lions dollars. ,
The court in its decision holds that,
as the Uaijed States supreme conrt de- i
cjsiof inj Ua' Chicago lake front case i
was the 1 last authoritative utter- 1
•nee from the highest court i
of law, it is entitled to all con- i
sideration and respect. It must, <

The case at the bar, says the court, is j
not embarrassed by any nncertainty.
It can matter not whether the whole
harbor of Chicago or only a portion
thereof was sought to be conveyed into
private ownership by the legislature.
The grant in this case is of still greater ;
actual and relative size. If in the Cbi- j
cago case the abdication was not con- ■
sistent with the exercise oi that -
trust which requires the government of <
the state to preserve Buch waters for
the use of the public, it certainly was
sot in the case at tbe bar.
The land conveyed by the decision ex
tends along Oakland creek and San
Francieco bay ior about 10 miles, and
comprises about 8000 acres. The suit
of the Water Front company was not
against the city of Oakland but
against a number oi individuals
who claimed to have equal title with the
water front company to tbe lands in
question. The decision accordingly
make* invalid the claims of all partieß
to the lands, the ownership of which
reverts back to tbe state.

Washington, Jan. 21.—Jastice La

Speculation is already rife over the
successor to Justice Lamar on tbe su
preme court bench. The particular per
son who will be chosen is not considered
bo much as the question whether Har
rison will make a nomination to fill the
vacancy or leave the matter open for
President Cleveland's action. It is cer
tain, in view of the attitude of certain
Democratic sec tors toward the nomi
nation of McComas to be judge
of the court of the District of
Columbia, that a nomination by
Harrison would be antagonized to
the end of the session, if possible. In
view of that fact it is probable the pres
ident will not care to provoke the bitter
controversy and will take no action, but
it can be said he baa come to no deter
ruination upon the matter, and he will
not consider it, even,for several days at
least. Should he decide to make a nom

A Michigan Pugilist Pot to Sleep by
an Australian Slugger After
• Desperate and Hard-
Fought Battle.
Sam Fbancisco, Jan. 24 —Welter
weights Jim Barron of Australia and
Paddy Purtell of Michigan fought at the
California athletic club tonight. Barron
won in the seventh round.
There was plenty of fighting done
during the seven rounds and Purtell did
as mucb ac Barron, if not more, but the
Australian had the advantage in height,
weight and reach.
There were a number of exchanges in
the first two rounds, both men generally
aiming for tbe head. Purtell landed
several times in the third and then
went down from a right on the jaw. He
was up in a moment, however, and
fought hard, driving several right jabs
into the Australian's head and receiving
several in return. Both men were tired
at tbe end of the round.
They renewed their slugging in ffce
next two rounds and each tried hard for
a knock-out. Purtell landed oftener
and apparently with greater force, but
Barron stood up under nis blows and
continued to pound his opponent when
ever an opportunity offered.
The sixth round was a repetition of
the preceeding two. Furtell was the
weaker, but he continued to fight hard,
and Barron tried time after time to fin

Iguoro— The Caucus
By tho AMOcintod Press.l
VVasuinoto.n, Jan. 24.—The R°pub
lican senatorial caucus this afternoon
decided by a majority vote to take fa
vorable action upon the admission of
the territories of Oklahoma, Utah and
New Mexico, but left Arizona out in the
cold. This result was not attained until
after a prolonged discussion.
A great deal of opposition waß mani
fested on the part of some eastern
eenatore, who pointed to what they
called the manifest evidences of
the inability of these territories to
Jake UP the cares and burdens of state
hood. Ooj-ction was made to the ad
mission of New Mexico on account of
its great preponderance of citizens who
could not speaa or write tbe English
language; to Arizona because of ita im
meuße debt, and Oklahoma by reason of
itß newness and the absence of the
essentials which go to make up a suc
cessful territory ready for the more ad
vanced position of statehood.
The caucus developed into a contest
between tbe extreme west and tbe east,
and appears to be a victory for the
younger members of tbe senate. It ia
considered a victory, however, in name
only, for the subsequent action of the
senate negatived the reeult obtained.
It agreed that the question of admission
should be made the order of buaineßa
to follow the discussion of the - Nica
ragua canal.
After the present order, the Cherokee
strip bill, iB disposed of, tbe senate will
take up varioua interstate commerce
bills and will then begin the discussion
of the Nicaragua canal bill. In the
meantime the appropriation bills, which
have the rigbt of way, will begin to
make their appearance and demand the
attention of tue senate.
Thus it will be seen that the chances
for the discussion of bills to admit the
territories are very slim, and the east
ern senators who gave assent 10 the
caucus programme very reluctantly,
haveno hesitancy in saying no action

from San Antonio to the News Bays:
The fact that tbe San Antonio and

A Field Which Has Attracted Very Many
Bright Creatures.
There Beeins to be a great setting in of
the tide of working women toward jour
nalism.. It is a little cnriouß that women
who have failed in many methods of
breadwinning should think it easy to
write for the newspapers and edit great
journals. Possibly the easy style that ia
in reality the perfection of good journal
ism seems to require only a ready pen
and a moderate fund of general informa
tion. Women soon learn their mistake.
They learn that absolute correctness,
reliability, punctuality, and, above all,
adaptiveness, are absolutely necessary to
even moderate success. Besides this they
must havo what is technically known in
the profession as "a liking for the busi
ness" and a willingness to do that which
they can do best.
It will not do for a fashion writer t«
"write up" a great religious or political
convention, although women's versatil
ity in journalism is a source of never
ending surprise to men. A newspaper
woman will write a pathetic sketch, re
port a fashionable wedding, make up a
practicable menu, give a charming ac
count of some other woman's new gown
witli fidelity to details in many cases
quite beyond a man's comprehension or
ability, write up the season's openingH,
compile a fashion article correct as to
style and novelty, and in addition write
advertisements, read proof, set type, do
typewriting, write on a pinch a credita
ble editorial, and in the interim attend to
her household and social duties.
The successful editor of today recog
nizes that the homo and the fireside must
receive due aud proper attention in his
paper, and that what may bo called
"women's news" has developed wonder
fully in the last few years. Matter about
and for women that is helpful and in

As to the individual success of women
and their compensation, nothing very
positive can bo asserted. In no other
profession does ability so quickly receive
recognition as in journalism. There are
not so many briKht minds or good ideas
in the profession that both should not be
eagerly grasped at and well paid for by
the editor. The ability to express a great
deal in a few words is not usually a
woman's forte; rather is she inclined to
use a great many words and express very
little. Strange as it may Beem to those
unacquainted with the fact, there is a
limit even to a newspaper's capacity, and
a flow of language, however eloquent, is
far from being the great essential.
The stony of the poet who took a canto
of fifteen verses to an editor for publica
tion antkwas told to boil it down and ex
tract the Bentimont is very applicable.
After repeated efforts he failed to satisfy
the editor and finally told the latter to
do it himself. "Do you love me? No!
Then go," was the gist of the matter,
and while this may be extreme the prin
ciple of multum in parvo is a good one
for women who desire success aa news
paper workers.—St. Louis Star-Sayings.

A Parade Which Will Extend from the
Depot to the City Hall, Where

Be Made.
Yesterday the various committees in
charge of the reception to Senator White
perfected their arrangements and there
are very few new details in them beyond
what have already been published.
Yesterday morning Mayor Rowan re
ceived a communication from Secretary
O. D. Willard of the chamber of com
merce asking the Issuance of a call
through the newspapers to the general
public to co-operate in the reoeption to

Senator White's fellow citizens to ex
press their congratulations to him upon
his selection as United States senator.

9 o'clock, about half an hour before the
regular Santa Barbara train. The special

lar train and get on the special, arriving
in the city about 10 minutes before the
San Francisco train.

be met with carriages, and a parade will

A Midnight Conflagration.
Albany, N. V., Jan. 24.—A special
dispatch to the Press and Knickerbocker
from Fair Haven, Vt.., at 1:45 o'clock
this morning, says a disastrous confla
gration broke out at midnight and tbe
indications are that tbe entire town will
be wiped out. Aid has been asked from
White Hall and the entire department
of tbe latter place has responded.
In reading over the literary items of
the week, I found not much to interest
me, until my cyo caught sight of an
article headed "Jenlcs 1 Dream." Imag
ine my surprise to iind it ended up with
a recommendation to use Dr. Pierces
Pleasant Pellets. Nevertheless, being
a great sufferer from sick headache, I
determined to try them, (md, to my great
joy, I found prompt relief, and by their
protracted use, a complete immunity
from such attacks. Pierces Pollets
often cure sick headache in an hour.
They are gently laxative or actively
cathartic, according to size of dose.
As a pleasant laxative, take one each
night on retiring. For adults, four act
as an active, yet painless, cathartic.

Indigestion and Bilious Attacks, they
have no equal.
