White t House Slake 4 Alia 7' LONU KING, THE PAINTER. What 111 tikes nu n go to the uruir cessarr rouble of putting on airs? What sense is there in Lou? Kind's n-inij a lailder to stand on when ho joints Rail's signs? Why d.mt he rtike it easy ami stand on the sidewalk ! We have seen him, m.iny u time, in warm weather utiiiul in the cellar of a house while ho papered the walls in the second story. A man with a reach like that is simply a slave to appearan ces when he takes a ladder to paint a siyn on t he tire-wall of a one-story building like Kail's. But King is young and pretty and coltish and we suppose he thinks he must observe the fashions. Yesterday he bawled at a well known cripple: "Ilvjllo, boss, I thought jon were dead. " "Dead," says the cripple, " I'll utlive all spindle-shanked painterB whose heads can't tell what county their feet are standing in." Here King laughed ahorse laugh and returned to his daubing. The only real lod thing that King ever did was once when the halliards got unreeved on the old flag stall' that used to stand on the Plaxa. No body could climb up to the truck; Fourth of .Inly was coming, and everybody was in a quandary how to raise the flag. King came -ilong, laughed one of those blood-curdling la.ighs of his, reached up, rove the rope through the truck and set things to rights in less time than it takes to tell it. And he takes a ladder to stand on when painting a sign on Rail's roof ! He ought to be killed. DEATH OF PHILIP BYRNE. Uur townsman, Hon. W. S. Byrne, received yesterday the sad news of the death of his father, Philip Byrne, who died near Elk (Jrovo Station on tho Consumncs River, Sac ramento county, California, yesterday morn ing. Tho deceased was essentially a pioneer, having become a resident of Illinois in the early days of the settlement of that Stat, and coming to California among the first, ot the immigrants who crossed the (treat Plains. Mr. Byrne h id arrived at the ripe age of 78 years, and died respected by a very wide cir cle of friends. Our friend took tho train to Sacramento last night to be present at the funeral of his father. He has our heartiest sympathy. GAM BLIN'tJ LICENSE REVENUE. Sheriff Swift informs us that the licenses issued by him to the dealers of gambling games in this county since the passage of the Act of 1877 have amounted in dollars and cents, to date, to no less than $J7,o00. This is the rovenue from that source in live quar tersone year and three mouths. Half of this sum goes to the State and half to the county. Is it not the part of wisdom that our law-givers pause before they consent to the repeal of so prolific a source of revenue ? The rrERAi of the late Christian Kitz ineyer was very largely attended on Sunday afternoon. There wore the Turners number ing more than forty members, the Union Veterans numbering forty odd, and a very long line of sympathizing friends and neigh bors in carriages. The solemn services were performed by Rev. McClain of the Presby terian Church. 1 THE RACES. The race course was visited by about 150 people on Sunday, to witness a running race for a purse of 250, free for all, mile and re peat. Three horses were entered, viz; Mollie H, Glen Dudley and Rill Hazel. The first heat was taken by Glen Dudley aud the others by Mollie H, Hill Hazel bringing up the rear in eaeh heat. The next was a trot for a purse of 100 mile heats '.I in 5. The entrees were Jim Cook to harness, driven by Noreross, and Tom Morgan to wagon, driven by Allen llragg. Morgan won two heats, when a com plaint was made that Noreross was pulling his horse. The judges then put Denison in the sulkey and ho won the last three heats, race and money. There was considerable dissatis faction expressed and a protest was entered against paying the pools. The matter was re ferred to the Association, and after due de liberation it was decided that the pools be paid, and that Bragg and Noreross be ruled off the track for their natural lives. It was evident to a great many that a job bad been put up in the trot, and the manner in which the case has been decided by the association, will, we think, give general satisfaction, as they have shown a determination to keep up a reputation of fair racing anil fair dealing that will give the public confidence to visit the course whenever purses or matches are to be gone for, and it will also learn the getters up of jobs, that this is the w rong place to at tempt it. Tlii.- attendance during the meeting (except on Sunday) has been large and en thusiastic. The racing has been good, and the association have good cause for congrat ulation upon the success of their inaugural meeting. A summary of the races is appended SLilMAKY. N. A. M. & M.

The sidewalk philosopher, sympathizing with the curbstoneer, views witli emotion the departing forms of the gallant racers as they are led, all blanketed and subdued, up from the scene of ; heir late exploits and through the streets to their various des' i .v tions. hi rever the s.i :ie may be. AVs jt' s observers may be heard venting their opiiuv. . horse-ologj.'til. They are building a new water-cistern, which is ulso a tre-eistern, at the entersec tiou of Telegraph and Ormsby streets. (We guess it is Telegraph and Ormsby, this we confess we don't know dead sure ; and we do not believe that anybody else does. At all events they are repairing the cistern up the street, one square west from the Adams House.) Meantime the street is blocked. That black paint with which they were painting the south and east sides of the new Opera House is tire proof. It will ?t.nlariy degree of heat for several minutes so l ieddy says, and he knows. Angius has some mighty fine peaches the best we have seen. And the beauty of it is that the price of 'em is well within the means of the respectably poor. Be have bought some. Six big bars of Northern Belle builion ;it Wells, Fargo & Co. 's express office is a good showing from that splendid mine. May it never yield less. Eugene Bonaparte Rail fetched as far as Carson yesterday, lie camo overland, and looks like an immigrant that is, healthy a;:d rugged. Glad to put eye upon the old fellow once again. As warm as toast was yesterday. Now let July do her part mid give us no more lapses into the autumnals. So shall we flourish and be as sound as a people ought to be under the Dog-star. HARDWARE AT BED PRICE: Any farmer or mechanic or fellow citizen who wants to lay in Ilia summer stock of reapers or his winter's supply of stoves, his assortment of tool.s or his needed bill of mis cellaneous hardware, is informed that Messrs. P. A. Wagner & Co. are selling off their great stock of those goods below bottom prices. IIr, then is a chance for the biggest and best kind of bargains bargains in nails and screws, in rakes and mowers, in tin things and iron things, and in all and singular the things and things and things that one finds at a first class hardware establishment like Wagner and Co.'s. Colonel Cavanavoh and Major Mann went the grand rounds yesterday inspecting the pickets and paying off tho troops who served in the late Fourth of July campaign. The forces under tho oriflamb of the Morn ing Apfkal received their share of the bounty money and are correspondingly flush and thankful. It is evident that Governor Bradley has secured a most effective aid in the person of Col. Caranaugh. Notice. -The Grand Jury will meet this morning at 10 o'clock sharp, of which all persons interested will take notice. MATCH RACES. We are happy to be enabled to state that two matches have been made to come off on Friday, the 19th of the present month, over the Carson track. Each race is for 500 a side, and the forfeit of $250 on each race is now in the hands of the stakeholders. One match is between Mollie H. and Bill Hazel, three miles and repeat, and the other isamile and repeat between Madge Duke and Illusion The horse3 are now being trained for the encounter, and all may rest assured that every thing will be done to have matters arranged in such away as to give general satis faction. Is Bettbk Shape. The Reports pub lished in our issue of Sunday contained one or two unimportant errors. They appear this morning in better shape, and the mind of the inquisitive taxpayer is assuaged. The adjusters of the Carson Mint are ex cused for the present week on account of a lack of material to work on. J. P.-IIIxaon. with KawHd Kennly, Mer chant Tailor, 505 California, Slrtet.
