Medals and Prizes Given the
Pupils for Their Faith-
Pretty Girls In White Dresses En
tertain Their Parents and
The annual distribution of prizes took
place at St. Vincent's School. 671 Mission
street, yesterday. The 500 girls in attend
ance presented a very pretty picture in
their white dresses. The graduating class,
consisting of Misses .Laura Danneker,
Alice G. McGuirc and Sarah Scott, were
particularly noticeable. A novel feature
of the programme was the playing
simultaneously of six pianos by eighteen
and later by twelve girls. The class in
elocution presented a striking performance
in posturing as Miss Acnes Rankin sang
"Nearer, My God, to Thee." Their con
cert recitation, "Music on the Rappahan
nock," in which the songs of the two
armies were introduced, was especially
effective. The whole performance, and
the choruses in particular, gave evidence
of the careful training that had been be
etowed upon the children.
At the conclusion of the programme
Father Gray, the parish priest, gave to
Miss Laura Danneker, Miss Alice Maguire
and Miss Sarah Scott, the three graduates,
their crowns of honor. They were also
given the medals and diplomas they had
earned by their conscientious work. The
other premiums were then distributed as

FOUR BLYTHE DECISIONS.
The Supreme Court Dismisses All the
Appeals Except That of the
Yesterday afternoon the Supreme Court
handed down four decrees in the famous
Blythe estate case. All of them were in
reference to motions made by Attorney W.
H. H. Hart, who represents Florence
Blythe, to dismiss all the appeals that
have been taken from the, decree of Supe
rior Judge Coffey, which awarded the es
tate in toto to Florence.
This action of the Supreme Court defi
nitely settles, it would seeru, at least three
of the four appeals. The first is that made
by J. Witt Pearce, who represents the Eng
lish heirs. The motion to dismiss this ap
peal was granted.
The second case decided is that of Adam
Blythe and the Irish heirs, represented by
Attorneys E. F. Preston, Seidon S. and
George T. Wright. The motion to dismiss
this appeal was granted.
The third case is that of the Public Admi
nistrator, who appealed from the decree of
dissolution and did not want to relinquish
his administration of the estate. The mo
tion to dismiss this appeal was granted.
But yet the track is not entirely clear
for Florence and her attorneys. There
is the appeal of the Gypsy heirs, headed
by H. 1. Blythe, and represented by At
torney S. W. Holladay. The fourth decree
of the Supreme Court was to deny the mo
tion to dismiss this appeal, on the ground
that the appeal was of such a natnre that
the Supreme Court must look into its mer
its before deciding, and on a motion to
dismiss the Supreme Court could not do
This leaves Attorney Holladay's motion
still pending. It will probably be taken
up on its merits in the July term.
There is one other appeal not yet dis
posed of— that of Sarah Davis— but that has
not yet gone up to the court and will prob
ably be delayed for some time.
The most comfortable route to the East sum
mer or winter is the Santa Fe route. The sleep
ing-cars are superior and the meals en route
are unequalei.. There is less dust and no more
heat than on any other Hue.
A popular misbelief is that extreme heat pre
vails on this line in summer, while the fact- is
that the elevation of the whole line insures as
comfortable a temperature as can be found on
even the most northerly line. The northern
part of Arizona is the summer resort of the
people of that section, and the Grand Canyon
of- the Colorado is visited in tne summer
The Santa Fe route is first class all the way

The Pelton Water Wheel Company had
several large shipments from their works
on the unfortunate steamer Colima which
recently went down and orders for dupli
cating them are now being received by
wire, which, in connection with several
local orders, give them all the work they
can handle. The Peiton Wheel Company
made an extensive exhibit at the
late Santiago Exposition in Chile, whicti
attracted much attention and carried away
first prize. A very spirited contest was
entered" into, which resulted in an effi
ciency test under the direction of Govern
ment officials. This gave the Pelton 27 per
cent higher useful effect than any of the
others and resulted in a recommendation
for its exclusive adoption in that republic
for all power purposes.
In one special feature, at least, the Santa
Cruz Venetian Carnival will eclipse any
thing of the kind ever witnessed on the
coast. This will be in the fireworks dis
play. The contract for furnishing these
fireworks was awarded to the California

for the largest single order ever given in
the State. In it are included effects ranging
from 50 feet to 1000 feet long, while for
the aerial display are included 30-inch
shells to the number of 485, when in the
ordinary fireworks display 50 shells of
this size would be considered ample. In
the grand closing scene, a lifelike repre
sentation of the Festival Queen, standing
on a beautiful barge in the bay, in the at
titude of waving a farewell to the carnival
guests, will be of such magnificence as to
present a fitting finale to this grand event.

POTRERO FOR ARC LIGHTS
Four of Them to Be Immedi
ately Placed on Army
Street Lamps Examined by Super
visor Hirsch— Needless Gas
The Potrero is after electric lights and
has received a promise of getting them.
Supervisor Hirsh has been making an ex
amination of the street-lighting now in
vogue there and has recommended that by
replacing a dozen or more of gas lamps
with two. good arc lights and abolishing
nearly a half dozen more, which, being
close to electric lights already, are useless,
a great saving would be effected and much
more satisfactory lighting given that part
of the City.
Police Sergeant Bennett is particularly
anxious that some kind of light be placed
on Army street. This is a very important
street now that it has been graded, as per
sons working at the Potrero and living in
the Mission district choose that way when
they desire to walk.
Four arc lights are to De immediately
placed on this street tit the following cross
ings, respectively : Pennsylvania avenue,

trero are at Napa and Michigan, Napa near

streets, one on the north side of Sierra
street, between Louisiana and Maryland,
one on the north side of Butte street, be
tween Kentucky and Illinois.
By putting an electric light on the north
east corner of Solano and Indiana streets
and one on the corner of Solano street and
Pennsylvania avenue the following gas
lamps could be done away with :
One on the south side of Solano, between

The Polytechnic High School graduated
160 young men and women last evening.
The exercises took piece at the Girls' High
A. Comte Jr., member of the Board of
Education, presided. Before introducing
the salutatorian he said he was glad to
have an opportunity to pay a tribute to the
work of the conscientious teachers of San
Francisco, and he was sure that in no in
stitution is more faithful painstaking work
done than in the Polytechnic High School.
Reverting to his own school days and
comparing the advantages of those days
with the opportunities of the present he
said : "Let us not emulate that city which
contended for the honor of being the birth
piace of Homer after the great epic poet had
begged his bread in its streets. Substan
tial appreciation should be shown to teach
ers when their best energies have been ex
hausted in their noble life work." He
urged the class to regard continuous self
improvement as a duty, and to fulfil] nobly
the responsibilities that time would place
upon them. He introduced the saluta
torian, Henry M. Goldsmith, who bade the
audience welcome, and spoke of the past
and future of the class.
Hon. Irving M. Scott was introduced as
a man who could not only build ships but
Mr. Scott said, in part:
Ladies and your escorts, I belong to the ad
vanced class at present. Let me impress
strongly upon you the lesson that you should
honor the country to which you belong. Be
true to the grand State of California, if the
sons and daughters of the United Kingdom
bear proudly the flag of their island country
shall not California's children proudly Dear
aloft the stars and stripe;-, which are the em
blem of power, strength and justice? It was
for this you received your free educa
tion. You were born "free— born in a
nation that has never been guilty of dishonor,
a nation that spends more money on its
s-chools than does any other in the world. The
United States spends' $2 49 per capita for the
education of its citizens. Italy spends 25 cents.
It is to this liberality with her schools that the
United States owes her erand upward march.
Remember this when you hear that the world
is growing worse and that material wealth is
the cod of the human race. Your education
should serve to lead you to look beneath such
fabrications to facts. To you we will surrender
the responsibilities of the home and the Na
tion, and we ask you to keep aloft the standard
of patriotism. We ask you to respect age, re
spect merit, brains, ability wherever you may
meet them. Be not disturbed by tli'e waves
that sweep the social fabric. Remember that
force is constant though form changes ever.
Seeing this great audience assembled to en
courage and honor you, I know that the public
schools of San Francisco ure safe in the hearts
of its people.
Remember well the practical lessons, think
well of your country, your teachers, your
friends. Honor your parents and the institu
tion that has done so much for you.
Miss Nellie Chase, the valedictorian,
paid a tribute to the teachers, expressed
gratitude to the Board of Education for its
aid to the school and bade farewell to her
H. C. Henderson of the Board of Educa
tion assured the class that when Professor
Bush presented the diplomas to the 160
boys and girls he would be almost as happy
as they. And why were all so happy?
These closing exercises represented the
pleasure of a course completed. How grate
ful should the young people be to the citi
zens of San Francisco for establishing and
sustaining the schools in which they have
been fitted for the battle of life. Conclud
ing he emphasized the fact that success
depends upon individual effort.
Mr. Comte said that the nchool building,
corner Bush and Stockton streets, would
be open for inspection the remainder of
the week, and the public was invited to
visit it and seethe apparatus. Hon. Irving
M. Scott, who had delivered an eloquent
address, and than whom no son of Cali
fornia has ever done more for his State,
had honored the school with his presence.
Would not his example of interest be
emulated by other San Franciscans?
Mr. Hawley of the Board of Educat&n
presented the diplomas. He announced
that Edward H. Baker had the highest
standing in the school.

A VERDICT FOR SOMERS.
Loomis Loses His Damage
Suit for Malicious Pros-
Nature of the Evidence He Pro
duced-The Jury Stood Nine
The protracted trial of the case of Loomis
against Somers, whereby the plaintiff
sought to recover $100,000 for malicious
prosecution, reached the jury yesterday.
For a month the case has been bitterly
contested, and it has been freely asserted
that the defendant, Calvin Somers, was
entirely lacking the means of satisfying
any judgment against him of a monetary
nature. It was argued on the side of the
defense that the secret of the bitterness of
the prosecution was to create a. hostile at
mosphere about Somers in the view of
other important litigation in which he is
The original cause of the suit was the
shooting of a private detective named Mc-
Clintock ten years ago in the private
apartments of Mrs. Mabel Treadwell, now
deceased, at the Russ House. Charles A.
Loomis was charged witli the shootin»
and convicted, but on a second trial he
was acquitted. Calvin Somers and Mrs
Treadwell were the principal witnesses
agamyt him. Then Mr. Loomis brought
his suit for damages.
In the course of the proceedings he
charged Somers with planning the murder
of his (Somers') mother, and in other ways
attacked Somers' reputation as to honesty
and veracity. Somers' defense was gener
ally in the nature of a denial of the allega
tions against him.
Judge Daingerrield, before whom the
case was tried, gave exhaustive attention
to the points raised, and held exception
ally long sessions to accommodate coun
sel. The prosecution was represented by-
Messrs. Mnoon and Watt, while Judge
Rix appeared for the defendant.
The Judge charged the jury at 4:30 p. m.
His instructions were very comprehensive.
The jury was out only a short time when
it returned with a verdict for the defense.
It was polled and was found to stand nine
in favor of Somers to three against him.
Nearly all the Indian tribes had a rude
system of hieroglyphics, that of the Mio
macs, in Nova Scotia, being employed by
the whites in communicating with them.
