Wbfls it Is too early for any details of the com
ing diamond festival of the Brooklyn Orphan
Asylum, to be given at the Academy of Music,
some of the general features have been announced.
It will open on Thursday evening. November 6,
with a dress ball, in which three hundred young
men and women of the borough, in special cos
tume, will take part. As the concert hall has been
engaged for the first Philharmonic concert the
following evening, the festival will be suspended
until Saturday, which will be devoted to the chil
dren. For Monday and Tuesday an English vil
lage will be erected in the banquet room, wljlle
the opera house will be converted into a typical
Dutch market. In these will be given the various
entertainments. Mrs. Jeremiah V. Meserole and
Mrs. James S. Hollinshead. who are the prime
movers In the affair, have been laboring unceas
ingly to enJist the interest of the entire borough
in the enterprise and obtain for it a representative
list of patronesses. The proceeds of the festival
will go to build a hospital for the asylum. It is
particularly hoped that the children of Brooklyn
v ill be urged by their parents to contribute gener-
ously and help better the condition of their less
fortunate brothers an 1 sisters.
NATIONAL GUARD NEWS.
Piscussfon and criticism relative to the ap
pointments to the Militia Council, provided for In
the new military laws of the state. Is by no
nifaiis abating, but is increasing, and not in a
long time have officers hail such a lasting topic.
What surprises officers most is that no colonel
from any repriment in New York City should have
been honored with a place on the council. It was
generally expected that either Colonel Appleton
of the 7th Regiment, or Colonel Bates of the "Ist
Regiment would be recommended by Adjutant
General Henry for appointment by tne Governor
to represent the 5,100 infantrymen of the city,
and that either Colonel David K. Austen of the
loth Regiment or Colonel William F. Morris of
the Sth Regiment would be selected to represent
the 2.C20 officers and men of the coast artillery.
The latter, however, are not represented in any
manner. It Is pointed out that beyond any doubt
an order will have to be Issued revoking the ap
polntmenl of Captain O'Ryan of the Ist Battery
to serve on the council, because he is not a field
Officer, and the law is mandatory that the five
Officers detailed sliould be field officers. The only
field officer available to represent the light artil
lery on the council is Major Kavld Wilson, who
commands the battalion of light artillery. Major
F. A. Wells of the L'iid Regiment, who has been
selected to represent the infantry of New York
City, over the heads of seven colonels, is a well
known rifle shot, but was twice passed over in
Ms own regiment for the office of lieutenant
colonel. Officers express the opinion that the H.IOO
officers and men comprised in the seven infantry
regiments in the city should be represented by an
officer higher than a major.
Members of the national guard who served in
the joint exercises with the army are wondering
why the state cannot pay them as promptly as
the United States Government does. The night
beft>re the men left for home the army paymaster
paid every man the cash due him from the War
Department. The balance due from the state in
come cases was paid only last Tuesday, and at this
writing many officers and men are still unpaid.
Captain Sydney Grant, of Company D, 13th
Regiment, is still confined to his home with an
a uack of typhoid fever, and it will be several
weeks at Least, it is said, before he will be able
to go out. Second Lieutenant A. C. B. McXevin
of Company M, recently elected, has passed the
examining board. Company F has been presented
by Captain Patten, C. f. A., with the red cloth
target it hit with a six-inch shot at Fort Hamil
ton recently at a range of 5,620 yards. The target
is on exhibition in the room of Colonel Austen at
the armory.
The 12th Regiment during its recent tour at
camp had 36 officers and 657 men on duty. There
arc ten vacancies to fill among the companies for
commissioned officers, but Colonel Dyer prefers
not to be in too much of a hurry to fill them at
present. There are vacancies for first lieutenant
In companies A. B. C and G. Companies C and ¥
have each a vacancy for second lieutenant, and
companies X and L hove vacancies for both first
and second lieutenants. There is a vacancy In
the n»d siaff for Junior major.
Major F. H. Wells of the 23d Regiment has
been detailed as an observer at Pine Camp, and
Colonel W. H. Chapin, inspector on the staff of
General Roe, has also been detailed in a similar
capacity.
Colonel Stokes of the 23d Regimqent has made
application for authority to transfer a sufficient
number of men from the several companies of
his command to Company M, which has been in
process of organisation lor a long time, but which
lias been unable to fill up Sufficiently to be mus
tered into the regiment. .' Assistant Surgeon Kd

Officers of the 14th Heglm^n.. are thinking of

the coming drill season. The officers of the rej?l
nient have decided to arrange an outing early this
month, ami a committee has been appointed to

ALTERING THE MUSEUM
Many New Exhibits To Be Dis
played in Brooklyn Institution.
Brooklynites will scarcely recognize the interior
of the Brooklyn Museum In the fall. Not only has
the rearranging of many of the rooms been well
begun, but many new exhibits have been placed
on view.
Simultaneously with the announcement from the
Bronx Zoo that a new polar bear has been ob
tained to take the place of the one that died last
winter comes word from the building in the Kast
ern Parkway that the pelt of the dead bear has
been placed on a model and put on exhibition tor
the benefit of sightseers. The attest figure in the
glass case Is the exact Image of the dead bear.
Casts were made of the dead anl'mal so that no
mistake would be possible. Even the pelt retains
its natural yellowish tinge.
Just across the room from the bear, on the sec
ond floor, is the new exhibit of stellar aea lions
from the Pribylov Islands. There Is a gnat male
which, in life, probably weighed one thousand
pounds or more, a female, two little cubs and a
yearling. The pelts of these creatures were pre
sented the Institute last spring by Colonel R. B.
«. THE MUMMY CASE OF A HIGH PRIEST
OF AMEN, NOW IN CELLAR OF THE
BROOKLYN MUSEUM.
Woodward. About the only use that can be found
for a sea lion is to make an exhibit of him. Many
years ago the natives of the Prlbylov Islands used
the pelts extensively for their boats. Skin boats
are still used for lighters In the rocky sections, as
they are not easily pierced. In the old days it
was the height of Russian seamanship to change
the skins of the boats while at sea. The hardy
niarlners became so expert that they could slip
the new pelt under the keel of their craft atid draw
the old off from benoath the new without taking
In enough of the Pacific Ocean to disturb them, at
least.
There is one exhibit that will appeal to the small
boys at least. The oil bird exhibit, which was
told about in these columns recently, is now
ready. It is near the sea lions, though the visitor
would never guess it. He would notice only a dark
and not very large window and near by a sign:
"Push the Button."
When the invitation is complied with a scene
appears behind the dark window. It is the cave
in which the oil birds live. They are the only
vegetable eating night birds known. The people
of Venezuela, where they come from, use the oil
from them as a sort of substitute for butter. It is
eaid that North Americans prefer butter. A
larse number of the birds may be s»en In the
dim light.
Another such exhibit Is soon to be prepared \;lth
the yellow rumped hangnest birds as the subjects.
These birds are second cousins if the orioles.
They live in Venezuela. They nulld their curious
hanging nests in the treetops. The nests are built
open at first, but later, when the rainy season be
gins, the birds roof them over. A strange custom,
which the birds have is to build their homes near
wasps' nests. The explanation of this Is that the
monkeys, the worst foes of the birds in countries
where they live, are kept away from the, eggs by
the wasps. These birds will be inclosed In a case
b.hlnd a window, but when tho button Is punned
a bright glare will be thrown upon them.
A terse portion of Professor Goodyear's Egyptian
exhibit has now been placed in cases and may be
seen on the first floor of the museum. It is said
that the museum has the finest collection of
scarabs In existence. The finest exhibit of the
collection, the big and handsomely decorated
mummy case of a former high priest of Amen.
Is still kept out of eight In the cellar by the lack

ON THE PACIFIC SLOPE
Conviction and Sentence of Walter
J. Bartnett — Quick Punishment.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
San Francisco, July 4.— The conviction and sen
tence of Walter J. Bartnett to ten years in San
Quentin Penitentiary for emberzllng funds of the
Colton estate, of which he was executor, while
serving as the real manager of the California Safe
Deposit and Trust Company, shows that San Fran
cisco is quick to punish when evidence Is pro
duced and the prosecution adopts fair methods.
The main witness who convicted Bartnett was J.
Dalzell Brown, his associate in the management of
the bonk, who received practical Immunity for his
confession. This was precisely the method adopted
by Assistant District Attorney Heney In the graft
cases, but Heney has obtained only two convic
tions, and In the Schmitz case the prosecution will
have to begin anew because of the carelessly drawn
complaint.
"Abe" Ruef, the former boss, was successful this
week in his plea to the District Court of Appeals
in regard to bail. Judge Dunne, of the Superior
Court, refused to accept as bondsmen Ruefs rela
tives or any of his sureties who did not possess
real estate. The Appellate Court held that this
action of Judge Dunne was unconstitutional and
referred the bail question to Judge Seawell, of the
Superior Court. The hitter is taking a vacation, so
Ruef has had his case transferred to Judge Mu
rasky, and his sureties will be examined by that
judge.
The city savings banks announce 4 per cent in
terest on all deposits for the half year ended July
1, with the exception of Jhe San Francisco Savings
Union, which pays i\* per cent on term deposits
and 4 on ordinary. Real estate dealers regard as a
mistake the action of the banks In raising the rate
of interest on loans from 6 to 7 or 8 per cent for
building purposes. They say that depositors would
have been satisfied with the old rate of 34 per
cent, under which the old rate for loans could have
been continued, with perhaps the addition of one
half of 1 per cent. As it is now, the high interest
rate discourages building.
The Tinyo Maru, the new turbine Japanese liner,
which arrived this week from the Orient, broke th«
record between Yokohama and Honolulu and be
tween Honolulu and San Francisco. Ths steam
ship made the voyage from Yokohama to Honolulu
in 8 days and 5 hours, cutting the record of the
Pacific Mall steamship China th c hours. The
tilp from Honolulu was made In 4 days. 18 hours
and 00 minutes, against 5 days and 1 hour, the
China's record. This was made in the face of
strong head winds ami with a green Japanese crew.
The Tinyo has the same type of turbine engines
as the Mauretania and the Lusitania. She la the
first of three ships which will take the placa of
the old vessels of the Toyo Klsen Kaisha.
After thirty years of service with the Southern
Faciiic Company. J. H. Wallace, engineer of main
tenance of way. resigned this wwk. He will be
succeeded by John Quincy Barlow, a personal
friend of Minager Calvin, and recently chief en
gineer of the Western Maryland Railroad. Mr.
Wallace was presented with a handsome loving
cup by his associates. Another resignation was
that of Thomus A. Lawson, superintendent of the
western division of the Southern Pacific, who has
held the place only since lant November. He re
turns to Chicago, probably to become division su
perintendent of the Northwestern.
Passengers from the Orient who reached here this
week declare that the business depression in Japan
Is severe. This is partly dye to the effect of the
late stringency In the United States and partly to
the Chinese boycott, which affects every line of
trade. •
