A Committee Appointed to
Make Prodigious Noises
on July 4.
ALL POR THE CITY'S GOOD.

Oakland is going to have a big "toot" on
the Fourth of July, for the committee on
"morning awakening" lias so decided.
'•We want to give San Francisco an idea
that Oakland is xsot her bed-ehaniber," said
Chairman Dr. .1. L. Mayon of the awaken
ing committee yesterday. '-Oakland has
long been known to the people of California
as a quiet city and but a piece of San Fran
cisco and what we want to do is to dispel
all such ideas. Therefore we invite any
thing and everything that can make a
noise to participate."
Some weeks ago the leading citizens of
ihe town across the bay formed themselves
into various committees to get up a great
Fourth of July celebration. Heretofore
Oakland has had no Fourth of July cele
bration of its own, having always united
£ with San Francisco in observingthe day,
but this time the quiet town is going to
show the State that it can have a celebra- j
tion and have a lively one at that.
Probably one of the most novel commit- I
tees appointed to make arrangements was I
that on '"morning awakening."' Its duty
is just what the name signifies— to awaken
the people. A half hour (from 7 to 7:30
a. m.) has been set apart for the exclusive
use of mat committee. It has decided to
offer prizes to those persons devising the
means of making a noise. Every
:-team whistle and bell in the city will be
brought into play. The blacksmiths will
all he invited to place their anvils in the
middle of tiie streets and hammer on them !
isl as hard as they wish. As many small
• oys as the funds will permit will be sup
] lied with tin horns and "devil" whistles.
When asked as to the reason for all this
noise Chairman Mayon said: "It may
ise new energy and new feeling. There
- nothing that wiil get up more enthusi
■ han a lot of noise. If it does nothing
more it will surely get the people wide
awake. We need more vim. The people
need not be frightened, no matter what
kind of a racket they hear."

Various committee reports were received.
Chairman Worth reported that the decora
tion committee desired to wind wiiJj bunt
ing all tbe telegraph poles on Market

the city was half the celebration, and made
a strong plea for the appropriation of
$4000 which his committee had asked.
Mrs. Sarah B. Cooper suggested that the
literary committee add a half hour to its
programme and ask Miss Shaw of
Woman's Congress fame to occupy that
time. Her request was referred to the
Secretary Owen read the following let
San Francisco, Cal., June 3, 1895.
Mrs. Sarah B. Cooper, Chairman Ladies' Auxili
ary of the Fourth of July Committee: Dear
Madam: Learning through the daily papers
that any suggestions relative to the approach
ing Fourth of July celebration would be re
ceived, I write to suggest that a sufficient num
ber of misses from the High School to represent
the several States in the Union, each bearing a
flag upon which the name of her State shall
appear, the whole body escorted by the High
School Cadets, assemble at the "Liberty Tree,"
Conservatory Valley, Golden Gate Park, and
there salute the rlagi sing "America,"or engage
in such other literary exercises as your com
mittee may deem appropriate.
You will recollect that the "Liberty Tree"
was planted by Sequoia Chapter, Daughters of
the Revolution, of San Francisco, on "Patriots'
day," April 19, 1894, as an object lesson de
signed to foster true patriotism, and to per
petuate the memory and spirit of the men and
women who achieved American independence,
and w&s deposited in soil contributed from
battle fields and made memorable in our Revo
lutionary War, and from near monuments,
buildings and tombs erected in commemora
tion oi the services of the Revolutionary sol
diers, sailors, patriots aud heroic women who
have bequeathed to us our noble heritage. Hop
ing the suggestion will meet with your ap
proval, 1 am, cordially,

The suggestions in the letter Jwere re
ferred to the parade committee.
Mrs. T. E. Smith suggested that those
who contribute flowers should be instructed
to make them up beforehand in small bou
quets suitable for distribution in the hos
pitals. She said that Clara Morris, the
actress, had requested her friends so to do
on her opening night and her wishes had
been respected. All the flowers received
on that evening were donated by her for
distribution in the hospitals, and her fore
thought had saved much labor to the ladies
of the Fruit and Flower Mission who took
charge of the distribution.
Grand Marshal Forster submitted the
following report of progress:
Thus far the following have accepted invita
tions to participate in the parade: The entire
Second Brigade of the State militia, eight com
panies of the regular army: twenty-one parlors
oi the Native Sons (the entire membership of
this city, who will introduce two appropriate
floats, one representing the "Days of '49"
raining incidents, etc., and the other not yet
decided upon) ; the Veteran Guard, which is a
branch of the G. A. R.; the Mexican War Vet
erans, the Pioneers and the Exempt Firemen,
who, instead of drawing their engiue as here
tofore, will have it drawn by four horses.
Colonel Graham of the United States
army has kindly consented to permit the
color guard of his regiment to act as the
color guard for the procession. This guard
will be placed at the head .of the proces
A special invitation is extended to all of
the public schools in San Francisco re
questing them to place in line a class of
either boys or girls of one of the higher
grades from each school. A banner with
the name of the school inscribed thereon
will be furnished to each class participat
ing in the parade. The grand marshal
specially requests any of the older mem
bers in the schools to organize a class for
the purpose suggested and report to him at
the headquarters of the Fourth of July
committe, room 2, fifth floor. Mill's
A special invitation is also extended to
the members of the Grand Army of the
Republic to participate in the parade in a
body. A place in fine will be reserved for
them. It is requested that they report at
the headquarters of the committee the
number of men who will likely be in line.
Mrs. Rose French suggested that the
military company of young ladies in tne
Horace Mann School be invited to take
part in the entertainment of the day.
The grand marshal has prepaied the
following address to the business men of
Dear Sir: Your attention is respectfully
called to the approaching Fourth of July cele
bration to be held in this City. It is intended
to be one calculated to inspire and enlarge the
spirit of patriotism, advance the progress of
our City in every material respect, and to be
of such a character that, without doubt, thou
sands of people will be attracted to our City.
The arrangements are in the hands of some
of our best and most prominent citizens. It is
to be a celebration of the people, for the people
and by the people. Such a celebration as the
one suggested cannot, however, be made a
complete success without the combined efforts
of all our citizens.
The street parade is expected to be the grand
est the people of this City have witnessed for
years. Xo pains or efforts will be spared in
making it such. The most elaborate prepara
tions are now under way. All military com
panies and societies, clubs and organizations
of every class will be invited to participate.
Already many of the organizations and soci
eties invited, as well as the entire militia and
a portion of the regular army, have accepted
our invitation to participate in the parade.
There will be many floats and features in
line representing patriotic and historic eveuts.
Societies will bring out floats appropriate to
the purpose of their organization.
We are very anxious to have the industries
of our State and City made a prominent fea
ture in the parade. Will you assist us in this
:natter by placing in line a float or business
wagon, appropriately decorated, representing
your particular business? We trust that your
patriotism and love for your State and City
and their progress will prompt you, as ah
American citizen and well-wisher, to comply
with this our earnest request.
Will you kindly reply at your very earliest
convenience and oblige, yours most respect

AN ASA PISK NOTE.
The Interest Five Times the Amount of
The curious way in which interest com
pounds when its principal remains unpaid
was illustrated in a case in Judge
Murphy's court yesterday.
Asa Fisk, a money-lender, was suing
Cameron H. King on a promissory note.
Following were the explicit terms of the
note, showing the interest agreed to :
San Francisco, Cal., March 21, 1890.
Six months after date without grace I prom
ise to pay to Asa Fisk or order the sum of three
hundred and ten dollars, to be paid only in
gold coin of the Government of the United
States of America, for value received with in
terest thereon in like gold coin from date at
the rate of 3 per cent per month until paid,
interest to be paid monthly in advance, and if
not paid to compound monthly and bear there
after the same rate of interest as the principal
sum for value received. This note to be paid
at the banking house or office of Asa Fisk in
the City of San Francisco.
Cameron H. King.
Under this simple-appearing document
King became indebted 01 a $310 notesfor
$1002 interest, making his debt $1912. He
evidently did not expect to be able to pick
any hole in the wording of the note, for he
did not appear in court yesterday and
Fisk obtained a judgment for the full
amount by default.
Mr. Fisk also asked for counsel fees, and
although Judge Murphy exhibited some
indignation at the request he found the
applicant was within his right under the
law. He, therefore, allowed him $5 for
CHARLEY FARLEY DEAD.
Heart Disease Ends tho Caieer of a
Well-Known Man About
Charley Fariey, brother of John Farley
of the Peerless saloon, dropped dead in a
stable at the corner of Front street and
Broadway yesterday. He had been around
all day, but once or twice complained of
not feeling very well. About 4:30 p. m. he
said he was going home to lie down, but
before he reached the door he staggered,
attemped to recover, and then fell in a
heap on the floor.
A surgeon was called in, but his services
were not required.
The Coroner was notified, and a message
was also sent to hip brothers. Dr. Barrett
made an examination and reported that
deatb was due to heart disease.
Charley Farley was known to many of the
young men in San Francisco. At one time
he was worth a great deal of money, but
he lost it all. and latterly he has beeh hard
up, although his brothers never saw him
wanting. \ ears ago he was proprietor of a
popular resort on the corner of Commer
cial and Kearny streets, and later owned a
place on Pine street. After losing his
money he was barkeeper in some of the
best known places in the City, and subse
quently engaged in the livery business.
JUST ONE DROP OF BLOOD
Upon That Hangs the Life of a
Man Who Was Convicted
Freeman Smith in the Shadow of
the Gallows Awaits the Result
When Freeman Smith, found guilty in
Colusa County of murder in the first de
gree, was on trial he claimed that certain
stains on overalls he wore about the time
the murder was committed were stains of
blood from a hoe that was slaughtered.
The prosecution claimed that it was human
blood and that it was the blood of the man
he was accused of having killed.
Recently Governor Budd was appealed
! to, to save tho life of Smith, who, unless
the executive interferes will be hanged
j next Friday. The plea was set up that
the testimony against the prisoner was
purely circumstantial, and it was not suffi
cient to establish guilt beyond all question.
The Governor heard all that could be
said and then read the transcript of the
I testimony given on the trial. There was
I one point that troubled him, and that was
! the one in relation to the blood on the
i overalls. He did not feel satisfied that it
| was human blood, still the proof presented
i did not convince him that it was that of a
| hog as claimed by the defense. Before he
is convinced on this point he will not de
cide the fate of the prisoner who is now
under the shadow of the gallows.
To act without positive knowledge in so
grave a matter is contrary to the Govern
or's principles, so he has invoked science to
Help him. He requested Dr. Douglass W.
Montgomery of this City to make all
known testa, to determine if possible the
character of the blood on the stained over
The doctor ascertained that an analysis
had been made by Professor Thomas Price,
assayer and chemist, and that that gentle
man" had come to the conclusion from the
tests that he had made that the stains re
sembled very much those of human blood.
Yesterday a microscopic test was to have
been made at the doctor's office on Sutter
street. Drs. Spencer and Abrams were
present, as was also Professor Price, but
the test was postponed until to-day.
"Professor Price," said Dr. Montgomery
yesterday, li will not have anything to do
with the tests we shall make^ He simply
called to tell us the method he followed in
making his analysis. We have already
made tests, and while our method is not
quite similar to that of the professor it leads
to the same end. We have also made a
microscopical test, the enlargement being
between 800 and 900, but neither that nor
the analysis satisfied us that it is either
with human or hogs' blood that the over
alls are stained, and for that reason we will
make further tests to-morrow. It is an ex
tremely difficult task ut this time, the
stains being over a year old, to determine
with absolute certainty what the blood is —
that of a human being or that of an ani
mal. The average corpuscle of human
blood is from 3.200 to 3.2. r >o of an inch,
while the average of that of a hog is 4.230.
That has to be measured on a micrometer
under the lens. The corpuscle dries, dis
integrates, and we are forced to restore it
to as near its normal size as possible, a
most difficult task. Still we will do the
Best that science teaches us, but it will
take some time before we reach any con
"Meanwhile, doctor, the prisoner's time
is getting very short, and it seems that his
life depends on a drop of blood."
"That is true," answered the doctor,
"but we hope to reach a conclusion in time
to notify the Governor, whatever that con
clusion may be."

Prospects Made Bright by In
crease of Demand and
Dana's Criticisms Indirectly Pro
ductive of Good, Says Mr.
According to Herman Eggers, tne
Fresno viticulturist, California wines are
just now having quite a boom. He ac
credits the exertions of the wine producers
of the State with the result, as having
been in the right direction. He explained
"The increased demand and conse
quently increased value of our wines,"
said he, "have followed logically. Then,
too, we are sending our wines to districts
that never asked for them before. Orders
from the old centers are so much lareer
that the output each month for some time
past has been over a third more than for
the corresponding months of last year."
"Then you do not think Editor Dana's
strictures on California wines were hurt
ful?" was asked.
"On the contrary, " Mr. Eggers responded,
"I think they were helpful. They md
d irectly called attention to the fact that
California produces some glorious wines.
I have no douht that Mr. Dana had im
bibed -ome that were bad, but his criti
cisms aroused the winemakers to the
necessity of showing that such were not
"It is true that some inferior wines are
disposed of in the East — mostly the prod
ucts of small vineyards whose proprietor?
do not 3'et know how to make good wine.
These growers, finding the market here
closed to them, send them away whenever
they can secure buyers.
"It is also true that as high as 15 and 16
cents a gallon is realized for inferior wines
there, which is about what dry wines could
easily command in the cellar here. It
practically means that the net price there
is from 4 ro 6 cents, because the freight is
from 5 to I\i cents, and the cooperage costs
about 4 X 4 cents more. The cheapest sal
able wine here brings 15 cents a gallon
clear at home.
"The present good prices are due largely
to a shortage of last year's crop. There
are many things that have assisted, bow
ever. The growers are better organized
and are branching out so as to supply
the trade that formerly purchased
from the wholesale merchants who
owned no vines. Poor wines are being
sent to the distillery instead of being put
on the market to pull down prices. The
growers are no longer cutting each others'
throats financially by trying to underbid.
They have found that if they hold for a
reasonable figure they can get it now they
"But the best reason of all, perhaps, is
that we have riper wines on hand and
make better wines every year. Experience
has taught most of the vineyardists many
valuable, though costly, lessons.
"Everything is promising for the coming
year. The weather so fai has given the
growers of Fresno reason to expect a heavy
crop of grapes."
Mr. Lggers elaborated upon the many
advantages of Fresno, particularly in the
matter of climate. "There is a phenom
enal proportion of saccharine matter," he
continued, "in the Fresno grapes. In the
muscats, for instance, there has to be "So

40 per cent of the juice is pure sugar. Of
course, wine produced from such would
contain a maximum of strength and alco

to find anything superior to our finest mus

' la the case of Alary E. Campbell, of
Albion, Noble Co., Ind., her suffering
was so severe, her relief so suddenly real-
ized, and her gratitude so great, that she
wishes the circumstances published, in
the hope that others may be benefited
thereby. She says : —
"My physician told me I had dropsy
and falling of the *vomb. My stomach
and bowels were ' so bloated I could not
get a full breath. My face and hands
were bloated badly. I had that dreadful
bearing-down pain, backache, palpitation
of the heart, and nervousness.
" One of my physicians told me I had
something growing in my stomach; and
the medicine that I took gave me relief
only for a short time. I thought I must
die. I began to take Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, and it worked like
a charm. After taking the first bottle
I could walk across the street, now I am
well. I advise all my friends to take it."
