HOW THE DAY WILL BE OBSERVED.
The New Year Ushered in by Prayer
Receptions To-dny and Evening—Busi
ness of All Kinds Will be
This is the day which about two
thirds of the people had set apart on
"which to begin that somewhat myth
ical occupation of turning over new
leaves. It is otherwise known as New
Year's Day, and is celebrated in a vari
ety of ways. The usual method is by
fciaking all the noise possible, destroy
ing private property and by committing
acts of malicious mischief.
A small minority of each community
Khow their respect for the departing
year, with all its sins and sorrows and
Occasional rays of happiness, by hold
ing watch meetings and greeting its
euccessor with songs and prayer. There
ere worse ways than this of recogniz
ing the passing of the old year and the
birth of the new, but the majority of
people have not made the discovery.
Last night one of these old-fash
ioned watch meetings was held in the
First Baptist Church, and in which the
Young People's Unions of the other
Baptist churches participated. From 9
to 10 o'clock was devoted to prayer and
praise, the next hour to considering the
better methods of working among the
young, and from 11 o'clock till midnight
■was given to consecration. The pastor
at midnight made an address pertinent
to the coming in of the new year.
At 10:30 o'clock to-day special serv
ices will be held at the German Luther
an Church at Twelfth and X streets,
and after the sermon by Rev. C. F.
Oehler the Lord's supper will take
The members of the Young Men's
Christian Association are anticipating
a pleasant time to-day. They will
bold two receptions—the first from 2 to
4 o'clock, and the other commencing at
7:30 o'clock in the evening. Their lady
friends are expected to be among the
guests, and all will be handsomely en
But the young men are not going to
fcuve a monopoly of the pleasant duty of
entertaining, for the members of the
Young Women's Christian Association
announce that they will be at home to
their friends from 4 to 8 oclock this
evening at their pleasant quarters at
f.ighth and I streets.
This evening the children of the
Foundling Home will have their Christ
mas and New Year celebration com
bined. There will be a tree with pres
ents for the little ones, and all persons
Interested are invited to be present.
In Concord Hall, in the Foresters'
building, the Ladies' Auxiliary to the
lirotherhood of Locorriotive Engineers
(will hold a reception from 1 to 5 o'clock.
This afternoon and evening the mem
bers of the Sutter Club will keep open
bouse it their elegant rooms in the
California State Bank building, as is
their custom on New Year's Day. These
receptions are always pleasant affairs.
The Wednesday Night Club did not
have anything to do with New Year's
coming on their club date, but the
members have been taking unusual
pains to have their New Year party to
night an especially enjoyable one.
All the public offices, courts and most
places of business will be closed to
day, and many whose occupations or
business interests make it difficult for
them to get away at other times will
take advantage of this general and le
gal holiday to visit friends out of the
city. Scores of gentlemen sportsmen
•will seek the marshes or foothills for a
clay's outing with gun and dog, while
some who are neither gentlemen nor
sportsmen will stay at home and spend
the day in riotous tomfoolery. The po
lice will look after this class.
The Postoffice hours will be from 12
m. to 1 p. m., and there will be no de
liveries by carriers.

Serious Accident to George Hanlon,
the Elderly Farmer.
. The sad news was brought to the city
last night by Charles E. Spencer that
George Hanlon, the well-known and
wideiy-esteemed farmer whose home is
on the old Placerville road, about three
miles from Routier Station, met with
an accident yesterday that may cause
his death in a few hours. Mr. Hanlon
is about 75 years of age, which makes
his chances for recovery very slight.
It seems that one of the gates on the
farm required repairing, and Mr. Han
lon undertook to do the work himself.
The gate is a very high one, and he was
about ten feet above the ground when
he lost his balance and fell over back
He struck on the back of his head and
shoulders, snapping the ligaments of
the .ieck, and was unconscious last
evening. It was feared he would not
be able to survive his injury. Mr. Han
lon has resided at his present home
forty-one years, and is known to old
•residents all over the county.
A NEW YEAR'S GIFT
One That Was Received by a Well-
Known Local School Teacher.
Miss Sarah M. Jones, Principal of the
Fremont School in this city, and a grad
uate of Oberlin College, Ohio, received
on Monday as a hol'.day present, a docu
ment that greatly surprised and equally
gratified her. It was the broad parch
ment of that noted institution of learn
ing, awarding its graduate of many
years ago, for merit, success and credit
reflected upon the college, the degree
of Bachelor of Letters.
The recipient had no knowledge, prior
to the vote of issuance, that she was to
be thus honored—nor indeed any ex
pectation of the distinction, more es
pecially as so many years have elapsed
since she was graduated from the halls

Albert and John Shaw were found
guilty in the Police Court yesterday of

good behavior. The court gave them a
strong admonition to take care in fu

warning to Robert Berry, who, the
other boys said, also threw stones, but
who swore that his wrfst was broken

He pointed out to him the penalty of

ENGINEER SAM CLARKE'S MONUMENT
It Has Been Erected in the Cemetery
The Brotherhood of Locomotive En
gineer Well Pleased With
The resting-place of Samuel Clarke,
the brave locomotive engineer who was
buried beneath his engine when the
first train out of this city during the
memorable railroad strike in July, 1894,
was wrecked by some of the strikers
over in Yolo, is now ornamented by a
beautiful and imposing monument in
the cemetery at Stockton.
The monument was but recently com
pleted by a Stockton firm, and on Mon
day it was formally accepted by a com
mittee, consisting of I. Jordan, Will
iam Hatfield and Emile Frick, from Le
land Stanford Division, No. 283, of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers,
who went to Stockton for that purpose.
The sum of $000 was raised for the
monument, and the sarcophagus was
purchased to mark the spot in which
the martyred engineer lies buried. The
monument is of Barre granite and the
base and curbing of the lot of Califor
nia granite. The design is by the Stock
ton firm of Dickson, Woodhull & Cra
mer,and all of the work except the carv
ing of the Barre granite was done by it.
The eastern portion of the monument
was brought from Boston by the South
ern Pacific Railroad free of expense to
the engineers. It stands fully 0 feet
high, and is 0 feet 4 inches by 4 feet 2
inches at the base, and the cap is 3
feet 9 inches by 2 feet. On the broader
side of the die appears the following in
SAMUEL C. CLARKE,
Leland Stanford Division. No. 283,
Urotherliood of Locomotive Enuinews.
DioO performing his duty at Trestle No.
Yolo County, July 11, 1894.
It was the intention of the engineers,
says the Stockton "Independent" of
yesterday, to have the acceptance of
the monument attended with some de
gree of cremony, but, as the completion
was delayed until after the commence
ment of the rainy season, the ceremo
nies were dispensed with. The commit
teeaccepted the monument, assuring the
local mar ilemen of their entire satis
faction with the work.
After th» acceptance the grave was
decorated bjr the committee. The gen
tlemen left on the afternoon train to re
port to the division which sent them
here. They promise to send to the local
firm of marblemen some testimonial of
the appreciation of the engineers for
