Chicago's Wheat Market, Free Sil

John H. Wise, Collector of Customs at
this port, returned from the East yester
He is bronzed from the heat, weary from
the journey across the continent, but
happy because the object of bis visit to
Washington was gained.
A new cutter for the boarding of vessels
is to be built in San Francisco at the cost
of $50,000 and the Custom-house and Post
office are to be refurnished throughout.
Both these improvements will begin on
the first of next month. The new cutter,
both hull and machinery, will be built in
San Francisco, but the refurnishing of the
Custom-house may not be given to local
merchants. Bids will be asked for it in
Washington as well as in San Francisco
and the lowest bidder under the specifica
tions will get the contract.
Once the main object of his mission was
gained Collector Wise turned his attention
to other matters of interest. He discussed
the next Presidential candidates with j
prominent Democrats, the wheat deal with
Chicago merchants, the San Francisco
Postoffice site with C. E. Kemper, chief
executive of the United States Architect's
office, the silver question with some prom

her to be of snth'cient size to go outside the
heads if necessary, and fast enough to

viewed the Secretary of the Treasury on
the subject, and after discussing the
subject pro and con he finally told me
that there would be $50,000 available for
the building of the vessel on July 1. The
plans and specifications are ready, and I
expect them here this week. As'soon as
they arrive I will advertise for bids. The
new cutter will be 110 feet long, and have a
speed of twenty knots an hour.

THE PIONEERS AFLOAT.

Clambake on Angel
NAVAL RESERVE AT WORK.
The Young Mariners on the Olympla
Again— The Harbor Commis
The Pioneer Yacht Club had an outing
on the bay yesterday with a clambake and
a picnic on Angel Island and a sail home in
the afternoon. The Pioneers lay claim to
having been the first yacht club on the bay
when they sailed and spurted under the
title of the Bilgewater Yacht Club.
In the days long ago when one of the
regular clubs held a regatta on the bay,
the boats of the Bilgewaters were pressed
into service to swell the number of sailing
craft, and a fine showing they made.
A prettier scene than that which met the
eye off Meiggs wharf yesterday morning
at the start of the Pioneers' cruise has rarely
been witnessed. The yachts, with the Vol
unteer in the lead, sailed down on either
side of tne big cruiser Olympia, darting be
tween the shipping at anchor in the offing,
catching the light puffs in the channel and
heading out for the Presidio buoy. Grouped
about the Volunteer were the Pride of the
Bay. Plunger. Annie, Thelma, Ella, Magic,
the launch Millie and several others. Out
in the stream were the yacht Aggie and the
ships Wasdale, Both well, Sierra Estella, St.
Mungo, Royal George and several others.
The yachts of the club cruised about,
along the seawall and down past fhe City
front, with merry parties on board, and as
they went by the sounds of music faintly
came over the waters.
Angel Island was made shortly after
noon. A clambake was the first thing in
order and then followed games ashore and
boat races on the bay, the hours being
pleasantly beguiled until it was time to re
turn to the City.
The Naval Reserve has determined to
prolit by its experience on the trip to and
from Santa Cruz. The officers of the
Olympia extended an invitation to the
reserve to use the vessel while she is in the
harbor 3nd the invitation was taken ad
vantage of yesterday. Almost fifty of the
reserves, in command of Lieutenant-Com
niander Stahle, went on board in the morn
ing and remained on the cruiser all day.
In the morning the young sailors were
instructed in the boat drill. First, they
were put through the exercise by the
officers of the war vessel and then turned
over to their own officers, who put them
through their paces. The evolutions of
the boys called forth the plaudits of the
old salts. All hands showed an aptness
for the work, and more than that, a desire
to learn. In the afternoon they were
taught the names of things marine and
how to handle them.
Another visit will be made to the cruiser
to-day, and to-morrow the Olympia will
leave for Mare Island.
At the meeting of the Harbor Commis
sioners yesterday afternoon the question
of raising the rents of berths came up, but
nothing deiinite was decided upon, the
reading of the report of Professors Soule
and Marx taking up the time of the board.
President Colnon took Commissioner
Cole to task in regard to an interview with
him published in the Chronicle. In the
interview Mr. Cole declared that the
proposition of raising the rents would
drive shipping away from the harbor, and
he did not propose to stand in on such a
proposition. Mr. Cole declared that he
had not seen the article and must have
been misquoted or misunderstood. The
martial spirit of Colonel Chadbourne was
appeased at the explanation, and Mr. Col
non let the matter drop and postponed
further action until Thursday afternoon.

The plot of "The Power of Gold,"
which is the third of Sanford's produc

in melodrama. Lady Brandon entirely
loses her memory from some cause,
and her maid on their arrival in England from
South Africa presented herself as Lady Bran
don, while the real one is placed in a mad
house. A number of traeric scenes spring from
this deception, interspersed with a good deal of
comedy. Finally the curtain falls on all the
wrongs righted and virtue triumphant.

parts were well filled.
RThere was a large audience at the Tivoli last
night to witness the production of Offenbach's
charming opera "La Perichole."
The performauce proved to be one of the
most successful that have been given at the
Tiyoli for a considerable time, both the new
prima donnas especially distinguishing them
selves. Laura Millard gave a very charm
ing rendering of her role as the Peruvian
strolling singer La Perichole, and she was
much applauded and frequently recalled.
Louise Koyee also san^' and acted well as
Piquillo.the Perichole's iriend and companion.
RaffaelN voice was hearu to excellent advan

Peru, and Hartman's rendering of the Marquis
de Santareno was much applauded. The chor

paid to the staging and costumes.
The Brothers Martinettis, originally from the
Circo de Panish, Madrid, made a hit at the Or

There was considerable to attract the atten

and Venetian Carnival last night. In addition
to the usual acrobatic feats there was
a wonderful performance by Juno,
the man-frog, whose contortions and
antics were indeed marvelous. The military
evolution by the Royal Guards drew forth
much applause and the floats were very at
tractive. The gondola scene would have given
much pleasure had it not capsized and thrown
the occupants in the water.

An Accident at the Circus lloyal Water
Last night shortly before the close of the
performance at the Circus Royal and
Water Carnival a Venetian gondola con
taining three men, a boy and eight women
was sent on the miniature lake in the ring.
The occupants of the float had harps and
mandolins and all were attired in gay cos
tumes representing a boating scene in
Venice, when suddenly somebody moved,
toe frail vessel capsized and all the occu
pants went by the board.
The women were dripping wet, and the
men rescued them — that is, they thought
they did, but iome one saw a foot pro
truding over the side of the gondola, and
one of the men turning the boat over found
one of the women caught by a seat.
She was taken out insensible and carried
to a dressing-room, where a physician
worked over her for twenty minutes before
she regained consciousness.
The woman, whose name is Emma Hoff
man, was considerably bruised, but not
seriously hurt. The accident created con
siderable excitement in the audience.

On the opening day the principal busi
ness will be the filling of vacancies on the
various committees and the reading of the
reports of the grand officers. In the re
port of Noble Grand Arch J. H. L.
Gerckens a recommendation will be made
that California set the example for the
Druidic world by the establishment of a
special fund for the relief of the sick and
of the widows and orphans of deceased
members. At present such relief is af
forded by donations and these have be
come so frequent that the treasuries of
many groves are kept at a low stage.
In the report that will be made by Grand
Secretary John H. Knarston it will be
shown that five new groves were instituted
during the past term, that two surrendered
their charters, that two were merged into
other groves, and that the membership
had suffered a net loss of 135.
Among the matters of importance that
will come up for action will be the "Ameri

most favorably considered by the large

Among the prominent and most re

convention is Louis F. Dunand. He was
elected noble grand arch in 1834, and it is
generally admitted that the real progress
of the order began under his energetic and
intelligent administration. The impetus
he then gave to its growth was felt for
many years and is still manifest.
THE SHOOTING OF DE. PLOUF
First Day of the Trial of McGaughey
J. D. L. McGaughey, who shot Dr. John
E. Plouf on March 30 last, was on trial be
fore Judge Belcher yesterday. Several
witnesses were examined, most of their tes
timony going to show the facts of the shoot
ing on Market street and the possibility of
it being the result of malice and not of im
pulse as the defense claims.
Several physicians testified as to the
trouble between Dr. Plouf Jand McGaughey,
which led to the discharge of the latter and
of reported threats of McGaughey to get
even. Mr. Barnes, the District Attorney,
read Plouf's dying statement, in which the
victim accused the prisoner^of maliciously
shooting him and without any provocation
having been given.
The defense will undoubtedly plead strlf
protection in extenuation of the assault,
and will proceed on the lines suggested by
Detective Handley's testimony yesterday.
Handley testified that McGaughey showed
him a mark on his face saying that Piouf
had struck him with his cane, and then
another witness will tell of seeing tiie
cane break in the scuffle on the Market
All testimouy as to McGaughey's action
previous to the murder was allowed to go

for the assault, and not as having any
direct bearing on the charge. The prose
