THE REPORT OF THE.GRASD JURY
OF ALAMEDA. COUSTY.
Affairs of the County Conducted by
tlie Supervisors in a. Very r&-
OAKLAND. Cal., Feb. 23. The grand
jury reported today. It severely scorches
the county supervisors for unbusinesslike
methods, and says they have let contracts
practically without competition. One
bridge, costing 56000, was built upon a
mere verbal contract. One supervisor sold
a lot of old material for 50, which after
wards sold again for 10 times that amount.
Several supervisors were called upon to
refund mileage fees illegally collected,
and did so. Blankets have been furnished
to the county hospital which fell to pieces
as soon as they were washed. Tea was
bought at 20 cents a pound, which is
worth only 4 cents. It is recommended
that the present contractors for supplies
be not allowed to bid any more. The
county is being robbed by justices and
constables, who arrest tramps merely to
get the fees. The condition of the Oak
land city jail is denominated a disgrace.
Justice Shaw, of Berkeley, Is accused
of keeping a shotgun taken from a hunter
who was arrested for violating the law.

Exchange of Amenities Between Pri
vate Secretary nnd Editor.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., Feb. 23. In an In
terview E. L. Colnon, private secretary
to the governor and harbor commissioner,
took decided exception to an article which
appeared in this week's issue of Arthur
McEwen's Letter. The article In question
referred to him as the editor of a railroad
paper. Colnon said:
"ilcEwen is always talking of himself
as a journalist and a model of purity, but
he is a d, n Hessian, and everybody
knows it. When the Mall printed Gov
ernor Stoneman's portrait, with the word
'fraud' on his forehead, and kept It stand
ing: because he had betrayed the people
on the railroad question, McEwen, who
was then in San Francisco, fresh from
the failure of the San Franciscan, wrote
me and advised me that it was useless
as well as Indiscreet to continue the fight
for the people against the railroad. Mc
Ewen, In that letter, said, al30, that he
had found out the people and he had
found out the railroad, and he could say
that the people were worse than the rail
road. He told me on another occasion that
he had gone on the pay roll of the South
ern Pacific Company for the purpose of
bringing his wife's relatives from Nevada
to San Francisco."

Turfmen Anxionsly Await the Birth,
of a. Foal.
SAN FRANCISCO. Feb. 23 W. O'B.
McDonough, who paid $150,000 for the stal
lion Ormonde, was a little nervous today.
The arrival of a colt by Ormonde Is daily;,
expected, and a matter of $23,000 hangs
upon the sex of the youngster. Some time
ago, McDonough made a contract with the
Stanford estate, whereby Ormonde was
to be bred to some of the Palo Alto mares.
The fillies are to go to Mrs. Stanford, and
McDonough is to keep the colts. Fairy
Ross, the famous Palo Alto brood mare,
is in foal to Ormonde, and If the offspring
is a male, it will be worth $23,000 to Mc
Donough the moment It Is born. He has
already been offered that amount for it,
but to him such a colt would be priceless,
and no amount of money would buy it. If
it is a filly, then Mrs. Stanford will be the
owner of the best bred filly in the world.
The colt or filly will be the first of Or
monde's get in California this year, and
as there are only six mares in foal to him
his progeny will be high-priced.

The face can't lie much about the condition of the body. " Murder will

orders peculiar to women.
If there is a drain on the system and strength, the record of it will
show in the face. If there is nerve nagging "bearing-down" pains,
dragging and pulling at the most sensitive organs in a woman's body,
the face will show it. Abused nerves draw lines of care and worry on
the face. Nervous prostration writes its warning on the face long before
it comes. Sleeplessness, nervousness and debilitating drains make more
wrinkles than age.
Nine-tenths of the sickness of women comes from some derangement
of organs distinctly feminine. Nine-tenths of this sickness can be cured
and avoided by the use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. There is
nothing miraculous about the "Favorite Prescription" nothing super
natural. It is the result of rational thought and study applied to medi
cine. It has been prescribed by Dr. Pierce for over 30 years. It has
made thousands of women healthy and happy, and has brought joy to
thousands of homes. It makes healthy children possible and taken
properly during pregnancy, it robs childbirth of its terrors by preparing:
the system for delivery thereby shortening labor, lessening pain and
abbreviatiner the period of confinement. In "female weakness " it acts

"" Fire broke out in the Telephone saloon,
on Front street, between Morrison and
Alder, about 2:20 o'clock this morning,
and, before the arrival of the department,
had burned through the second floor and
roof. The department had a hard 30 min

the fact that the entrances to the build
ing were narrow, the walls difficult to
scale and the several engine and hose
companies greatly handicapped by lact
of sufficient men to handle the apparatus!
The roof of an adjoining building, occiin
pled by P. J. Cronln, saddler, was burned
to some extent, but the interior of J
building escaped injury.
The saloon, which is owned by Charles
Powley, was badly damaged by smoke,

amount to ?700. There "is some insurance.
The upper floor of the saloon building
