Emblematic •maple leaves and union
jacks shared with the stars and stripes the
honors" of, the flaestaffs at Sunset City
yesterday. It was Canadian day and the
people from over the border celebrated
with all the enthusiasm peculiar to their
... race and dime.
Even their weather was perfect and
was in keeping' with the excellence of their
reception and general arrangements. The
little cottage on the Midway was the scene
of a continuous round of festivities. It
was decorated with flags like a ship in
port on a Sunday, and within there was a
luncheon- and a sideboard and a welcome
for every visitor. In the course of the
afternoon 500 names nf native-born Cana
dians were inscribed in the visitor's book,
and the badges of the country were very
much in evidence about the grounds.
In Festival Hall a good audience assem
bled for more. formal exercises.. 11. Le
Baron Smith,- president of the Canadian
Auxiliary Committee, made a short intro
ductory speech and introduced Director-
Qsijeralde Young, wbo discussed the ques
tion of annexation. He said that the agi
tation for political union between the two
countries -is - more the work" of disloyal
politicians. than tbe real sentiments of ibe
Canadian people. He thought thai the
citizens of the United States did not desire
to increase its territory. Both nations J
■iielong to this. -continent and are neighbors j
ln feeling^ sentiment and interest.
Dr. VV. F. IteNutt was the next speaker.
After referring to the benefits of. interna
tional expositions be explained the ecuda
tlonal advantages which could be derived
from the Midwinter Fair. He said that
Canada is well prepared to setup business
on her own accouut. Be referred to the
"wonderful resources of the young giant
of the north," and said the time bad come
for her to commence negotiations for com
mercial reciprocity with these United
Harry Partridge followed with a happy
speech on behalf of the Canadian auxil
iary committee. He appealed to ail his
countrymen on the Pacific Coast to con
tinue to do their utmost in behalf of the
exposition and to assert nt every opportu
nity their own opinion of the excellence
of the fair.
The foreign commissioners, county com
missioners, concessionaires and exhibitors
met in joint session yesterday afternoon
and appointed a committee of five to con
fer with the executive committee upon a
plan for popularizing the fair. The man
agement will be advised to issue season
tickets, the price not to exceed $10. The
director-general is inclined to look witb
favor upon the season ticket plan, but
will Insist that the photograph of the
holder shall be attached to each ticket.
Members of the Southern California
Editorial Association were entertained
yesterday afternoon by tbe county com
missioners in the Northern and Central
California building. Tbe interior editors
were afterward escorted about the
grounds and were impressed with the
scope and excellence of the fair.
A wild-flower show will be held In the
Horticultural building from April 19 to 21
under the auspices of the California State
Floral Society. All exhibits will b- re
ceived and installed free of charge. Wells
Fargo & Co. have offered to carry free all
packages of wild flowers for this exhibi
tion, provided the parcel dues not exceed
twenty pounds in weight. The committee
in charge consists of : Mrs. L, 0. Hodgklns,
Mrs. L. E. Weister, Mrs. O. E. B< brock,
Mrs. R. Chandler, Miss Ella E. Bailey,
Mrs. Helen Cross, H. McGowen, Professor
E. J. Wukson.
The classified fish exhibit will be opened
in the arcades of the Agricultural building
on Thursday and will continued for one
week. The display will include all kinds
of fresh, salt, smoked, canned and pickled
The exposition < facials assert tbat the
Mardi Gras carnival will be the greatest
celebration of the fair. It will continue
for three days, from the 17th Inst. People
are beginning to realize that the Mardi
Gras means the abandonment of worldly
cares and business troubles to tbe man
date of the King of Mirth. The proclama
tion of Rex calls his subjects to a feast of
merry-making, and it Is expected tbat tbe
entire city will do its utmost to provide a
suitable reception for the merry monarch.
To-day is set apart for soecial observ
ance at the exposition under the auspices
of the Knights and Ladies of Honor. The
celebration will consist of a literary and
musical entertainment in Festival Hall,
beginning at 2 p. M.
Another children's day will be beld on
May 1, and will take the form of a May
day festival. The management will pre
pare a programme for tbe youngsters' en
joyment which will discount the fun they
have received on any previous day.
To-morrow is Press day at the fair, and
local and visiting journal will unite in
celebrating it. In the even there will
be an entertainment in Festival Hall
which will be under tbe direction of the
Press Club of San Francisco. The best
talent in the concessions will add to the
general enjoyment. Sousa's band will
give an indoor concert, the Hawaiian
quartet will sing, and tbere will be exhibi
tions by Japanese and Chinese tumblers
and contortionists. The director-general
will say a few words and several artists
will contribute vocal solos. There will be
do admission charge and tbe entire bouse
will be open to all comers.

Dow Elected the New President of
the City Council— A Lunatic's
Oakland.— William A. Dow, Council
man from the Seventh Ward, was last night
elected as president of the Oakland' City
Council, vice Towle, whose term had ex
Dalton nominated Dow for the position.
The nomination was seconded by Mr.
Sneli placed Councilman Barstow in
nomination, and was seconded by Coun
This closed nominations, and balloting
was begun by roilcall. The first ballot
resulted in Dow . election, and was as
Dow— Capell, Dalton, Ileitman, Manuel,
Wa'kins tn and Towle.
Barstow— Barnard, Snell, Marshall.
A motion was made and carried that
when the Council adjourned it should be
until Thursday night to give the new pres
ident an opportunity to make up his com
mittees for the coming year.
The new pre^idnnt is the youngest
member of the Council, a lawyer by . pro
fession, and is representative of the
younger element of the non-partisan majority.
The selection has given general satisfaction.
The trainmen connected with the Southern
Faclflc on this side or the bay do not loo* with
much favor on the ternaries of Colonel Crocker
about cutting down salaries.
A conductor running out ot Sixteenth street
said yesterday In reference to the m titer:
"There may be nothing but newspaper talk In
the cutting of sauries; but If it is line, aud the
company tries it, there will surely be trouble,
because the trainmen will not stand if. There
ate six organizations in ihe train service, and
these together form another organization, and
there is a strong determln aioa on the part of
the members to tesist any cut.
"Aud then, the trainmen have a contract
with i lie railroad company to pay the present
rate, und-r which both sides havebeen working
since 1882, and 1 doubt whether ilio company
Is thinking seriously of breaking this contract
by cutting the wages.
"Of course I know that in many businesses
wages Have been reduced, but the Southern
Pacific is running Just as heavy trains, work
ing just as many men just as many hours as
heretofore, and I believe making just as much
money. Colouel Crocket's road. does not pay
any higher wages tor the same service than ibe
Santa Ke, the Colorado Midland, tbe Oregon
Short Line or the Northern Pacllic, and does
not pay so promptly, either, for the paycar has
not come to time for Februaiy and March."
This trainman was asked: lf, any men bad
been dismissed at the mole en account of bard
times aud lack of business, and answered:
"No. Not a stugli- person has been dis
charged. The railroad company only spread
that report to get. men to talking and to
sound them legarding a reduction of wages."

Four years ago a ranch near Hay wards was
sold to \V. H. Green and bis wife by E. Eichier
for $1000 In cash and a mortgage for $5500.

-.Th*** Boogar Case. .
Yesterday Mrs. Mary S. Armstrong, the nurse
for Mrs. Boogar, when she was sick, signed her
deposition which is to be used In th- Boogar
divorce case, soon to come up In the- Superior
Court, and in the evenine was arrested by Offi
cer > Hives, at the . instigation of > Mrs. Boogar,
and was locked .up lv the city prison, on a
charge of perjury. . Mrs. Armstrong is past 70
and very feeble, and it was feared she would
not be able to again appear iv court. She was
a witness for Mr. Boogar when he was on trial
for attempting to poison his wife, and gave very
damaging testimony against Mrs. Boogar, and.
in fact, said she was "down on the whole
A I. unntlc Himself.
Avouug man named Robert Reed swore out
a complaint iv Justice Cliffs court yesterday
charging a certain Dr. Essex with Insanity.
The plaintiff stated that he had been forced
to give up bis wife some time since because she
Insisted upon running away with, an escaped
lunatic. The lunatic married Mrs. Reed, and
settled down, wiib shameful effrontery, next
door to tbe outraged husband. All this was
endured, Reed averred, until the lunatic came
in one day and announced Ills Intention of
slaying the plaintiff, who could first have an
opportunity of swearlug out a complaint of In-
sanity. ■ *i3q_q*s*f—M. l
When the constables went to serve the com
plaint they found the house vacant, and the
neighborhood was nuanlmous In declaring that
no one bad lived In It for months.
With so much of a pointer, Reed's mental
condition was Itself subjected to an Investiga-
Kit:, with the result of his detention upon the
charge he had advanced against "the doctor."
I Dr. Cool Wins.
The struggle that was begun, with sensa
tional side incidents, by Dr. Russell Cool aud
his divorced wife for the custody of their child
a few weeks ago, was resumed lv Judge
Greene's court yesterday. The case came up
on application of Mrs. Cool for a modification of
the decree of divorce, so that she might have
the child. rJ^tvaiHmß^QHMiWMni
The legal battle yesterday was conducted
along peaceful lines, and there were no excit
ing episodes either in court or not. Attorney
Joseph Rothschild. whose fistic encounter wi h
Dr. Cool was the talu of a day at the prelimi
nary legal skirmish, has withdrawn from the
case, and was not present yesterday.
Mrs. Cool did not amend her motion so as to
make any charges against her divorced hus
band. Sue sought an Increase of alimony and
the custody of Dlcka, the ear-old daughter.
This Dr. Cool successfully resisted.

The above is the remark which Edward Sei
dell Hodges attributes to his wife, Katie
Hodges, to whom he was married a few weeks
ago and who a week after the union was seek
ing a divorce from him.
Hodges tells au entirely different story from
that told by his wile. He said site knew all
about his being a moiphinc fiend, and that they
often talked these things over during : her
Wednesday and Satuiday visits to him at the
County Jail. He says that he asked the girl's
mother if be could marry her and that she was

/.',, One Mayor of Oakland.
\ Yesterday Public Administrator Stanley
asked for letters of administration upon what
Is left of the estate of Hemy Durant. once
Mayor of Oakland. When Durant died many
years ago be left a good estate, of which D. P.
Barstow and Watson Webb were appoint d |
administrators. These latter are both dead, as
la also the widow, who was legatee. It seems
that there is a small piece of land of small
value, which was overlooked, yet to be admin
ister upon. It was through the instrumentality
of Durant chiefly that the State University was
located at Berkeley. >l^s^_t^__nH_B r •■
