Oakland Office San Francisco Call,)
908 Broadway, May 9. f
A. A. Moore was hunting for a newspa
per man this afternoon and but for the in
tervention of Judge Nusbaumer there
might have been trouble.

morning that he had settled a case in court
with Juiig- 1 Frieic and that the Judge's
Congressional ambition and the Southern
Pacific Railroad controlled by
The Hall and Clubhouse at Uaywards Where the Grand Council of the Y. At. I. Will Meet a Week

than justice he was angry.

it with less trouble," and Mr. Moore
I started off on the run.

; into his ollice. Then the wicked editor
j was sent for and an explanation followed
and what promised to be a tragedy was
' averted.

HAYWARDS, Cal., May 9.— One week
from next Monday the Grand Coun
cil of the Young Men's Institute will
convene at Uaywards. During the past
week numerous communications have
been received of the various committees
asking for information regarding the
town, it; accommodations and its attrac
Haywards is one of the prettiest towns
in Alaraeda County, and deserves all that
was said about it at Vallejo last year by
the delegates who succeeded in capturing
the Grand Council of this year.
Only one thing is lacking that was
promised, and that is the fruit. This,
however, is not the fault of the Haywards'
folk, for the Grand Council is usually held
in August, and the early date of this year
is the result of the National Council held
at Denver two months ago.
Haywards is setting an example regard
ing the parade that is worthy of being fol
lowed in every town in the State. The
whole town has made it their opportunity
to show what Haywards can do and all
are working to make it one big success.
All the business houses will decorate and
for the day of the great parade the town
will be eiven over to festivity. Several of
the local secret societies will take part in
the parade, including the Native Sons,
Woodmen, Foresters and the Portuguese
Union. The Fire Department will make
a particularly fine showing.
The Hay wards Council will be headed
by a drum corps which has just been or
ganized, consisting of Manuel RoEers,
Ralph Jessup, Ernst Bridge, Frank Mar
shall, Manuel Rigg. Johnnie Paun and
All the residents have mutually agreed
that the town shall present as neat an ap
pearance as possible and every stray weed

The County Clerk'a Office Making Prog
ress Struggling With the Great
OA KLAND, Cal., May 9.— County Clerk
Jordan and his staff <are hard at work on
the stupendous task of writing 44,000
names on the great and precinct registers,
with all the facts set forth in the affidavits
as to personal descriptions, nativity, resi
dence, educational qualification, etc., to
be each carefully examined, located in
proper precincts, numbered and tiled al
phabetically and names to be addressed on
envelopes for sample ballots, the neces
sary comparisons, checking and arrange
ment for the printers, with the addressing
and mailing of 22,000 postal cards— all this
in adildition to the rapidly increasing
worn of the office in connection with the
courts and Board ot Supervisors.
Mr. Jordan was the first County Clerk
in the State to undertake this work, and
was, at first, subjected to some criticism
from clerks in other counties, but the lat
ter, who are now beginning the work they
hoped they would not be required to do,
are writing to him for points and general
information. The increased work thrown
upon his office by the new mode of regis
tration has compelled the employment at
his own expense of a considerable number
of additional clerks.

posts here next week and has now twenty
five men employed. Speaking of tlie
opposition be expected to encounter Mr.
Delanoy remarked that "'the Trustees are
the worst kuocked-out lot of men in Ala

will do nothing until the injunction suit

Oakland Offick San Francisco Call,)
908 Broadway, May 9. )"
Thomas Pearson, the colored orator,
says he is tlfe mascot of the colored wing
of the Republican party in the county.
There is likely to be further trouble over
the unseating of the appointed delegates at
Sacramento and the seating of those
electee! at primaries in this county.
The interest is now centered in the col
ored voters of the Republican party, and
has revived the old feud between the two
winps of the Afro-American four hundred
in this city.
It all comes from the fact that J. B.
Wilson wa^forced to vacate bis seat in
favor of Thomas Pearson. J. B. Wilson is
the editor of an organ of the race pub
lished in San Francisco, and a few months
ago he printed some remarks that led to a
case of libel in the Police Court. The
whole of the colony in Oakland was inter
ested in the event, and although the Judge
found the editor guilty at the first trial a
jury acquitted him on the second.
The many bitter things* said and done in
the court widened the breach, and when
politics became active the two leaders each
appeared at the head of their respective
parties and demanded ;ecofruition. Their
demands were granted. J. B. Wilson,
who lives in the Fiftieth Assembly Dis
trict, was one of the delegates appointed
to the Sacramento convention. He was
especially jubilant over the fact that the
State Central Committee recognized the
appointed delegates, and laughed long and
loudly at his confrere's plipht.
Thomas Pearson was the colored dele
gate elected for the Forty-eighth Assem
bly District, and is a stanch supporter of
primaries. He went to Sacramento feel
ing rather blue, but he jumped six feet in
the air when he heard the report of the
committee on credentials. The appointed
delegates were in the seats set apart for
Alameda County, and tliey were loth to
vacate them.
Mr. Pearson sent a messenger to J. B.
Wilson to tell him that the primary men
wanted his seat. Mr. Wilson was highly
displeased and Mr. Pearson waa radiant
with jubilation,
Since that time Mr. Pearson tans been
telling of the incident all over town, and
Mr. Wilson is anxious to stop him. but bo
far has not succeeded.
"Very funny thing," said Mr. Pearson
to-night. "It was a cola day in Sacra
mento, and I was tickled to see my old
friend in my seat. He had just warmed
it nicely for n;e. I sat down with great,
pleasure. I tell you I'm the wisest of the
colored Republicans of Alameda County.
I always come up smiling, and the best
thine the primary men ever did was to
put me on their ticket."

Observe Their Annual Day
of Festival.
Closirg of ihe Flower Show — Award
List— U. C Glee Club Give Their
Last Concert This Year.
BERKELEY, Cal., May 9.— To-day was
class day at the State University and the
occasion was elaborately celebrated.
The members of the graduating class ap
peared in costume, the ladies wearing
wtiite from heaa to foot and the gentle
men sporting black plug hats and whit 3
duck trousers.
The sophomores of the year just passed
wore their new junior plugs, adorned with
various selections from the college yell
and the '98 class yell, together with "skull
and cross bones," in honor of the Bourdon
"rush" victory of the class of '98. All day
the new juniors gathered in groups and
held bat-smashing rushes, and by night
there were but few of the new plugs left
without many marks of hard usage.
The new sophomores, freshmen until to
day, wore mortar-boards and practiced
singing the song they have hitherto de
spised, "The Jolly Sophomore."
The exercises in commemoration of the
day began at 10:30 o'clock this morning
at "Founders' Rock." A slab of Tennes
see marble has been placed in the rock by
the class of '96, and on it, engraved in gold
letters, are the words, "'Founders' Rock,
May 16, 1860. Inscribed May 9, 1896."
The rock is one on which the trustees of
the old College of California met when
they dedicated the grounds cUosen as a site
for the State University.
The senior class, led by the university
band and followed by many visitors,
gathered around the rock and listened to
addresses by Galen M. Fisher '96, Dr. E.
S. Willey of San Francisco and President
After the exercises at Founders' Rock
the class pilgrimage took place under the
leadership of the U. C. band. Raymond J.
Rub? made a brief address at the Chemistry
building. Benjamin H. Ramsdell spoke
the farewell to the Library building for the
class, and at North Hall a speech was
made by Arthur W. North.
Over 6000 people gathered in the natural
amphitheater behind the Chemistry build
in*, known as "Ben Weed's Amphi
The exercises opened with an address of
greeting by A. C. Wyckoff, president of
the class of '96, after which Joan L. Whit
tenmeyer read the class history.
The class prophecies were read by Frank
L. Argall. Miss Ethel R. Farnham and
Willarct D. Thompson.
The next event was the "Arrival of
Farmer Simkins," whose wife accom
panied him. The two, who were Ned
Blake and George Noble, proceeded to dis
pense fantastic and suggestive presents to
members of the graduating class. There
were some hard hits in the gifts offered
and much amusement was created.
The class-day poem, "To the University
of California," was by Miss Bertha T.
Bradley, daughter of Professor C. B. Brad
The class committee in charge of to-day's
celebration was as follows: Forenoon —
Martin O. Flaherty, Albert O. Warner,
Joseph O'Connor, Miss Ada G. Little, Miss
Mabel Symmes; afternoon— Raymond J.
Russ, Phillip L. Bush, F. Herbert Dam.
Galen M. Fisher, Lou D. Whipple, Miss
Ethel R. Farnham.
Nearly all the Greek-letter fraternities,
according to the usual custom, entertained
their friends at luncheon.
The general criticism offered with rela
tion to the afternoon performances in the
amphitheater was that they did not
approach in excellence the exercises of
last year, when more of a spectacular
show was presented. The class of '96
instead of spending the entire amount
raised through the graduating assessment
decided to turn over the surplus to the
Le Conte fellowship fund.

The Rosso Cottage License Causes
Municipal Officials Much
OAKLAND, Cal., May 9.— There is
trouble between tne Chief of Police and
the License Collector's office regarding the
Rosjo cottage. The matter came before
the Council committee and the Chief said
the License Collector had tola him proper
arrangements to run the quarter out had
been made and therefore he could not
close it.
The law says no place can run without a
license, nor can a license be transferred
only by the Council, and the Chief's state
ment made the matter look rather queer.
Collector Cole denies that he ever told
Chief L'oyd that the license bad been
transferred. The officers will all be before
the Council Monday to explain ma ters.
