Strlne of the* Tivoli Opera-house Makes Interesting Announcement. SECURES NEW ARTISTS FOR SUMMER SEASON Such a priceless collection of literary treasures as Is contained in the State Library ought not to be expored to ordi nary hazards of destruction by fire. At th<> earliest possible day a building should be erected for it that will be beautiful, commodious and, above all else, strictly fireproof. What the State university as an up lifting force has become to th? schools it is hoped that the State- library will In its own field realize to the libraries of California. Additional legislation will be sought which will enable the Trustees to so brnoden the use of this reservoir of knowledge that not a community in this commonwealth ncd go without, its in ppiripg aid. Some of these lines of development may be to furnish tran scripts of maps, taMes, books and man uscripts by professional copyists; ~to supply desired information regarding the construction of public library buildings', to send out books for blind persons and traveling portfolios of en gravings to high and nornai schools; to co-cperate with university extension courses and women's club work: to organize public libraries and strengthen weak oner,; to render advisory aid to school libraries; to publish lists of books of special value to different li braries; to increase the interest of fchool teachers and superintendents in library influence and to constantly pro mote !n the public mind a high sense of the educational value of libraries In all communities. NEW LAWS WANTED. Their wide use will greatly stimulate individual and club study. At the pres ent time single books are freely loaned to any responsible person, preferably through the library or schoof authori ties, on payment of express charges. The State Library is to be effectively represented at the St. Louis Exposi tion. The exhibit will be under the charge of Professor Furiong. in whose care the other educational exhibits of the State are placed. The library dis play consists of a large map of Califor nia, showing the locations of existing public libraries; a booklet for free dis tribution of a description of their his tory and giving views of many of the buildings; a revolving case of Califor nia views; a panoramic representation of the State Capitol ana grounds; an ordinary traveling llbray, one of books on Russia and a third one of important publications upon California and those written by California writers; a sam ple newspaper index and sample card catalogue. / ; So much for the past and the pres ent. What is to be the future of the State Library? If the plans of the' Trustees are carried out it is to enter upon a course cf widest usefulness. AH this gathered wealth of books, dealing; with the arts and sciences and con cerned with every pursuit followed by the citizens of the State; all of the lore of th^ ages which gives food to thought and impulse to learning:, ia to be made beneficial to the people of California. An arrangement has been made by which a part of the expenses of the Glee Club -of the University of Cal ifornia on Its tour to the East will b^ paid from the funds of the general committee having in charge the San Francisco building and exhibit at St. Louis. A certain sum of money has been agreed upon to be paid to the university singers for six concerts in the San Francisco building at the ex position. A series of -lectures to be illustrated with views of San Fran cisco has been planned and the sing ing of the University of California Glee Club will accompany the lec tures, the songs being interspersed. The Glee Club has an Itinerary fpr. a concert season in : the East tKat will culminate at St. Louis. The San Francisco management has seen that the Glee Club will be a large'attrac tion to the San Francisco building and will hold the people while the beauties and advantages of living in this oity are duly set forth to an au dience. At the same time the sum to be paid, while it is not large, being le.«3 than $500, will give the four of the Glee Club a guarantee of com plete success. The arrangement therefore promises to be . of mutual value.

Beside a young mechanic, engaged in the construction of a towering edifice, stands an aged man in the mood of reflection. To the left is a group of women typical of fine arts. The perspective, I a Californian scene, is very beautiful and the shades and tints are particularly marked. This is the first of a series of im provements soon to be completed 'in the building by the institute. Each room will be repainted, new coverings laid on the floors and new furniture installed. v The new entrance is of hard wood, tinted to a color that is har monious with the painting. It contains The beauty .of the entrance to the Mechanics' Institute library on Post street has been enhanced by a mural painting and decorations by Arthur. F. Matthews. The painting was uncov ered yesterday and was pronounced clever by those who have seen it. The improvements in the entrance are the gifts of Rudolph J. Tausslg, president of the institute. The mural decoration is the finest of its kind in the city and it is expected that it will establish a precedent in the beautifying of public buildings. The picture is an exquisite blending of both detail and color and is symbolical a carved bench and a pretty window in the south wall. The entire building is now lighted by electricity and the library will soon be one of the hand somest in the West. The rooms have been made more spacious for vis itors and the system of arranging books more perfect. A large Increase in the number of volumes and valuable and modern literature added. The chess and reading rooms will be improved and every convenience afforded to sub scribers. The recent report of Secre tary Joseph Curnmings shows a large increase in the membership and many applications are received daily. PAINTING BT ARTHUR MATTHEWS THAT ADORNS THE RECONSTRUCTED ENTRANCE TO THE MECHANICS* INSTI TUTE LIBRARY BUILDING. IT IS THE GIFT OF PRESIDENT R. J. TAUSSIG AND IS ONE OF THE BEST OF THE MANY SCHEMES OF IMPROVEMENT NOW BEING PERFECTED. " The argument on the application of Attorney George D. Collins to con tinue the restraining order made by Judge Cook in the matter of the forty two warrants sworn to before Police Judge Cabanisa for the arrest of >the inmates at 1129 Dupont street was continued before the Judge yesterday. It was contended by Collins that the warrants were obtained by subterfuge to enable the police to gain entrance to the premises and arrest the inmates. Fictitious names were given on the warrants in violation of the injunction and of the constitution, which says that the person must be described. For the respondents it. was argued that the warrants were obtained in good faith. The Judge reserved his decision till May 31. The Judge granted. the writ for the release from custody of Rosie Miller, as the proceedings in the lower court had been dismissed. Shfr was arrested on a charge of perjury alleged to have been committed at the hearing of the contempt proceedings against Police Commissioner Huttor:. Judge Cook Reserves Decision on Question of Restraining Order in Jean Pon Case. ISSUANCE OF WARRANTS v SUBJECT OP ARGUMENT The library trustees have under con sideration the proposition of sending 1 «.ut special traveling libraries to the ttudy clubs of the State. These will be rnecialized collections of works of lit erature, history, the drama and art. expected of a great repository of books that has been slowly growing for a half-century without a well-defined aim for usefulness save that cf occa sional consultation? These gaps that oxist It. various departments are lo hs filled till they become well rounded and harmonious in proportion. The chief calls now made upon the library are for information concerning electrical •rubjects, irrigation problems and geo logical rurveys. Extensive use is made cf the library's resources by the stu dents of the Sacramento High School. ROOKS TO TKAVEfX Valuable publications are found; on the Rbetvca derated to horticulture and viticulture. The periodical gallery con tains more than 5000 volumes. Ther? are larjre collections of Slate and Gov ?TTjrr.ent reports. Some of the depart ments, however, are relatively v.'eak nnd incumplete. What else cou'd b3 nttenlion has been paid to history, end fhe purchases «>f California and United States history have been generous and discriminating. Sociological and polit ical works occupy a large room. *r In the main library or classified col lection of books may. be found untold vetilth of material. The division of Theology is so large and resourceful ih£t it is almost constantly visited by ministers of all denominations. The tart collection is exceedingly valuable .^ud has many rare and richly illustrat ed works. No current fiction is bought < except lor the traveling libraries) and the supply of standard fiction is limit ed. \n biography the selections are re markably strong. The drama, espe cially of rhakespearia.r.a, has been lib erally cared' for. Literature is One of tho great features of the library, espe cially ia English poetry- The finest lilCII SHELVES The newspaper department is large and important. Newspapers from every county in the State are bound anfl ; shelf listed. These 2500 volumes of bound newspapers furnish a full and erhp.ustive record of the development of California. The map room is furnished with many hundreds of maps and additions are constantly being made. Not only are all official maps cf the State to be found here, but also copies of all those issued by the United States Govern ment, including those upon scientific subjects. The law department is recognized as «>ne .of the best in the country and no expense is spared to maintain its high standard. It contains 2S.000 volumes, including all reports of the various State and Federal courts, besides the co'urts of England, Scotland, Ireland, «.'anada» India and Australia. In the jnedical collection are S0OO volumes. A sew subdivision has lately been made for the traveling library system, from which nearly fifty libraries have been dispatched to different parts of California. Books designed fer this use are purchesed expressly for the wants of the communities they are to serve. On« of the richest, though least known, possessions of the people of California is ihe State Library at Sac ramento. It will afford satisfaction to ¦ the citizens of California to learn that the policy which has governed this library for mwre than fifty years has been radically changed. This old time policy considered the State Library as . being purely for reference use, a place •Jor investigation and research by any one who would go there — with the ex ception of the issuance of books to certain State crflicers and to members of the L<egis'aiure during a session. The State Library was established by £,n act of the first Legislature, held at San Jose, 1849-1SD0. During the half ' iTlHl 11 J since its creation it has re ceived senerous support and at the • present time has a larger income than any other State library in the United * tHates save that of New York. The income is derived from rees paid into the office of the Secretary of State and nu-w amounts to $2500 per month. - -The entire collection of volumes in •the library is not far from 125,000 and is divided into a number of depart ments. The first important deal in redwood timber land in this State this year was effected yesterday, when a large tract of forest in lower Humboldt County was (transferred to -the Metropolitan Lumber Company of Green Bay, Wis., Donovan and O'Connor of Menominee, Mich., and Charles Culbertson of Boul der, Colo. The transaction was the re sult of a visit to California last year of Congressman Fordney of Saginaw, through whom the deal was made. The purchase price is said to be 1600, 000, of which a large payment has al ready been made. The tract, it is esti mated, has in the neighborhood of 400, 000,000 feet of timber on it and Is ac cessible by way of the new railroad route to Eureka. The purchasers have announced their intention of organiz ing a new company, which will pro ceed in a few months to erect a big mill on the ground and prepare for the shipment of its product to the coast by way of Eureka, where it will be loaded on schooners to be built by the com pany. A party of the investors are ex pected here from the East during the first week In June to look over the property. - .
