be the election of two lay delegates to at
tend the General Conference in Cleveland,
May, 1896, and the question of admitting
women in the General Conference.
On the latter matter a vote will be taken
and a consensus of opinion gathered from
all the district conferences will be sent to
the General Conference to decide the mat
ter. These questions have not yet been
touched upon. The campfire entertain
ment was of a social nature and was a sort
of reunion. A musical programme was

Pasadena Residents Encountering a Wave
of Moral Reform.
PASADENA, Cal., Sept. 26.— a coun
ter attraction to the M. E. Conference
Pasadena is being treated at this time
with a great wave of moral reform, origi
nating with the members of W. C. T. U.
and I. 0. G. T. and under the auspices, for
the most part, of the M. E. church, which
has raised at its church services very con
siderable sums of money to carry on the
work, being seemingly desirous of washing.
Pasadena's dirty linen in public upon this
The arrest of a large number of drug
gists for violating the liquor ordinance,
and whose trials have been in progress
during the past week, has been followed
by the arrest to-day of two men for keep
ing gambling-places (all that could be
found here), and fifty half-grown hood
lums for participating in a percentage
game. All this is an unsavory expose at
this time, and suggests to visitors the idea
that Pasadena is a hotted of vice and in
iquity, while in truth Pasadeua is one of
the most moral, quiet and peaceable abid
ing-places upon the face of the earth.
Local paperg arP severely condemning the
methods pursued, and the better class of
citizens prophecy that the tyrannical
despotism of fanatical cranks will bring
about a reaction in Pasadena which will
end in high license. The public pulse is
at fever heat; the present situation is the
general topic of conversation, and the only
outcome of the attempt at reform thus far
is to arouse antagonism and sow discord.
ATHLETIC CLUB QUARRELS.
Proposition to Throw a Match Makes
Trouble at Los Angeles.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., sept. There
was no exhibition at the Angel City Ath
letic Club rooms this evening. In fact,
there is some doubt a3 to whether there
will ever be any more contests before that
club. The-whole difficulty has been brought
about by a proposition Fred Bogan made
to George Arbuckle, the backer of Jack
Frazier, to throw his match with Frazier
and allow the latter to win.
ArbucKle was to bet $600 or $700 on
Frazier with Fox and Kellerman, Bogan's
backers, and alter the money had been
won, Bo^an was to receive half of it for
permitting himself to be whipped. Ar
buckle did not expose the proposition to
the directors of the club until the match
had been declared off. Everybody was
greatly surprised, and more particularly
Mesfrs Fox and Kellerman, who had had
the utmost faith in Bogan, II these
charges against Bogan are not disproved
it may result in the disruption of the ciub.
Already some members have resigned. It
seems strange to them that a square light
cannot be put up in this city. ■
11. A. Lowell Attacked by a liarkceper at
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Sept. 26.— C. M.
Peters, a bartender, was arrested this
morning at the instance of H. A. Lowell,
who charges him with assault with a
deadly weapon. According to the state
ment of Lowell, the assault was a most
brutal and cowardly affair.
He states that in company with a friend
he went into a saloon on Sonth Main
street, near Winston, formerly the Senate,
and called for a glass of beer.
He was standing at the bar when a
drunken man challenged him to tight.
The trouble was easily adjusted and
Lowell stepped to the telephone, he save,
to order a gurney, when, without the least
provocation, the bar<ender came from be
hind the bar and struck him with a piece
of leadpipe about eighteen inches long,
felling him to the floor.
Peters was arraigned before Justice Mor
rison and ordered to furnish bail to the
amount of $ 1000.
AFFRAY AT SAXTA MARIA.
Tfiomaa Hanley Seriously Shot by J.
SANTA MARIA, Cal., Sept. 26.-An at
tempted murder occurred to-day about a
mile and a half from here wherein Thomas
Hanley, an old resident, was the victim.
The assault'was committed by J. Brngge,
a hired man. He fired at the old man
with a double-barreled shotgun while Han
ley was doing some repairinc around the
house. The first shot blew his right shoul
der off and the second missed him. Han
ley then ran across to a neighboring ranch
arid was broueht to town. Officer Klink
wasseht after the murderer, who was cap
tured and "brought to jail. Threats of
lynching were indulged in, as the old man
was very quiet and inoffensive, while
Brugge has a very bad reputation. The
latter is the brother of the murderer who
recently escaped from the Santa Rosa jail.
It ia thought that Brugge was aft^er the old
man Hanley's money. Hanley is ex
pected to live. The two men have had
several quarrels before.

VACAVILLE, Cal., Sept. 26.— Quite a
serious accident occurred at Elmira about
4 o'clock this afternoon. As the engine of
the Vacaville train was backing down to
the train a wagon occupied by Josh Rust
and two boys was near the crossing.
The horsea became frightened and ran
on to the crossing. Thinking they could
save themselves, the oocupants of the.
wagon jumped out, Mr. Rust and one of
the boys, about 16 years old, named De
Haven, falling on the track.
The engine came upon them, injuring
the De Haven boy so that one arm had to
be amputated at the shoulder, the other
above the elbow. His wounds may prove
fatal. Rust had one finger taken off, his
head cut, and it is thought he is internally
injured. He 1 will probably recover.

Some Striking Features of the
Old Pioneer Architecture
GRAND OPENING NIGHT BALL.
The Seventeenth Anniversary of
the Lodges to Be Very Prop
MISSION SAN JOSE. Cat,, Sept. 26.
--fbe Ancient Order of United Workmen's
new ball, the first of the order in this
county, will be formally opened to-morrow
night, the seventeenth anniversary of the
order in this town.
For seventeen years the Mission San
Jose Lodge has gradually grown and all
that time it has held its lodge meetings
and entertainments in a rented hall lacking
many of the conveniences so acceptable to
fraternal societies. A.bout a year ago the
members concluded that it would be a
wise move to build a hall that would be
their o-vn. The idea became popular, and
the necessary encouragement and coin
were soon on hand.
There is still a little outside ornamental
work to be done, but tne new hall is now
available for all the purposes for which it
was built. Very few of the lodges of the
Ancient Order of United Workmen have
lodgerooms of their own and the Mission
lodge acknowledges that it is rather proud
of its own enterprise.
The outline is simple, with a tinge of the
old mission style about the cornice and
roof. The projections at the sides of the
main entrance, with . tile-clad roof, are
stronger features of the same style. The
interior is very pleasing, all the large
rooms being elegantly decorated, conven
iently arranged and well lighted.
The plans wexo drawn by A. L. Sun
derer, architect, and the contract as a
whole was k't to Jamea W. Turner. Both
architect and contractor are local work
men and natives of the Mission, and much
satisfaction has been expressed with their
The dedicatory services were held two
weeks ago, when the members of the
Grand Lodge were present. To-morrow
the W^orkmen and their ladies will for

ball. The board of directors of the new
building arc James Stanley (president), S.
Ehrman, Thomas Bedard, H. Dusterberry
and John Coffaney.

THE GLEX ELLEN SUICIDE.
ltody of Retnee, the Missing Man, Found
on a Bald I'eak.
SANTA ROSA, Cal., Sept. 26.— Judge
Overtoil has returned from the Glen Ellen
Home, of which he is a director, and gives
some further particulars of the suicide of
Remee. Remee had been employed at the
home about a year. He was a Frenchman,
wno had evidently received a superior edu
cation and was an all-around useful man.
He was specially well up in chemistry.
Last month he left the home and told
soYne persons there they would never see
him again as he contemplated suicide.
They did not pay much attention to him as
they supposed he was joking. Me disap
peared that day, and afterward a search
was made, but no trace of him could be
found. As he had been paid off it was
thought ue bad gone to some other locality.
It seems, however, that he had followed
a hunter's trail to the top of the mountain
between the Sonoma and Napa valleys
directly from the home. He stuck Ins
cane near the trail with a handkerchief
upon it in which were the strange letters
He then went to a bald peak near by
where there were only three or four pine
trees, made a bed of brush, upon which he
lay down and took the quick-acting dose
of poison which ended his life. The body
when found the other day rested on the
back, the hat pulled over the eyes, which
had not been disturbed.
The body had dried up considerably,
but no animator bird of any kind hid dis
turbed it in its long exposure. The body
was buried, as he requested, where found
and a large stone placed over it.
Altogether it is quite a remarkable
suicide. Those who knew the man believe
ha had a secret and at sometime in his
life hail been more than he seemed.
ricking Has Commenced Though Sot on
an Extensive Scale.
RIVERSIDE, Cal., Sept. 25.— Raisin
grape picking has commenced, thought not ;
on a very extensive scale as yet. The crop '
this season is only medium in quantity,
bat good in quality.
The present warm weather is very wel
come to grape-growers, for it is just this
kind of weather that is needed to ripen
and sweeten the fruit. Several weeks of |
good warm weather will be welcomed now
by grape men as it is required to insure a
proper curing of the raisins. •
The raisin crop of this city is not near as
large now as a few years ago, owing to the
fact that many vineyards been up
rooted, yet this valley will have many car
loads to ship. . '*"*'"
OCX AX WAVE COLLISION.

PORTLAND, Or., Sept. 26. -, United

IT THUNDERED LONG AGO
An Ancient Spanish 12-
Pounder Abandoned to
Sands and Tides.
Over a Hundred Years A»o It Fired
the First Salute Heard on
An old bronze cannon of Spanish make
lies on the beach at Alaraeda Point half
sunken in the sand. Its cumbersome car
riage has been stolen or has rotted away.
The tide buries it continually deeper, and
soon if left there to the effacement of the
sea it will be lost to sight and to memory.
And yet this particular cannon, with
out doubt, was one of the two that rang
out across the bay the first artillery salute
that the bay ever heard. This salvo was
fired in B.eptember, 1776, precisely 119
years ago. It was to celebrate the comple
ion of the .Presidio, on which the soldiers
of Moraga had been working nearly a year.
Just beyond the point was anchored the
ship San Carlos— first to enter between the
pillared gates of San Francisco Bay — and
her guns answered the uproar from the
The San Carlos'brought along with the
supplies from the Presidio at Monterey
two cannon. These were placed on the
ramparts of the fort that lay next to our
present Presidio on the western side.
Later the San Carlos brought six more
guns of larger caliber. These were for the
Castillo de San Joaquin, and they now oc

They would be useless for defense, but

In the Presidio there is now only one
piece of Spanish ordnance. Its com
panion is across the bfty behind a wood
pile where the high tide covers it.
When and how the gun was taken from
its old stand is a matter of speculation. It
is thought, however, that several years
ago Captain Zalinski, who was then evolv
ing designs for his dynamite gun had it
taken from one of the forts to Alameda
Point, and used it for experimental pur
poses. Guns that it stood beside a hun
dred years ago now occupy places of honor.
It is forgotten. The North Pacific Coast
Railroad runs within twenty feet of the
place where it lies, and the labor of trans
ferring it to the place from which it was
taken would be very slight.

of First Water, a son of Fireworks, were
brought up in charge of his son, H. S. de S.
The horses of .1. G. Brown & Co. that arrived
in Sacramento from the East prior to the State
Fair came down from the Capital City yester
day and aie now quartered at the track. Their
owners, the popular horsemen, Galen Brown
and John Arkenburg, were busy all day renew
ing old" acquaintances. There are nine horses
in the string, including the crack sprinter.
Libertine, with a mile record of 1 :38 4-5. The
others in the lot are Treachery, Uncertainty,
Claude Hill, Princess Rose 11, Moron, Wyoming,
Buccaneer and a chestnut colt by Strathmore,
dam Zoozoo. Macklin, the clever colored iifrht
weight, who was seen in the saddle at Sacra
mento, comes with the stable.
It is only of late that the majority of horse
men have learned the advantage of taking
their horses out to the ocean beach and gallop
ing them in the salt water. So many horse*
that have undergone the "beach work" have
been returned winners of late that now there
is a general scramble among trainers to secure
stabling quarters on the edge of the Pacific.
The well-known trainer, Frank Taylor, was one
of the first to grasp the situation, and tne gray
horse, Sir Richard, a pronounced cripple, has
clearly demonstrated the beneficial results of
training there. Walt Viveli, perhaps the first
at the game, is snugly enscounced in snug
quarters a short distance from the water's edge
with Articua, Charles A, and the other horses
of his string. The well-known veterinary sur
geon, Dr. Masorero, has plans drawn up for
200 stalls to be constructed well, up on the
beach below the Ocean House, sixty-four o'
which are now well on toward completion,
lie is also having made & covered track one
eighth of a mile in length to walk the horses
during the rainy weather, the foundation
be.ingclay with a covering of tanbark. These
should be ample to shelter all the "suspicious"
horses in the country.
With fie-lds of but six to pick from in the
first two races yesterday, and four each in
the remaining: three races on the card, the
talent wended their way out to the track,
fully prepared to enjoy another day's
sport at the wily bookies' expense. They
said guessing the winners was "just like
getting money from home," but at even
tide-there was a different t::le to tell. A
favorite started ihe ball rolling all right in
the opening race, but thereafter matters
were decidedly mixed, until summing up
at the end of the day, the situation stood,
two favorites, one second choice, a third
choice and an outsider, and the pencilers
had the long end of it.
The first race, five and a half furlong?,
for horses that had labored along and
never had the v'easure of hearing their
names called first during the year 1895,
was take a by Frank Phillips' selling
plater Portugal, backed from 4 to 5 to 1 to
2. who was hard ridden the greater portion
of the race, but finally won - cleverly from.
Bob Tucker, the second choice.
There was considerable speculation over
the result of the next race, a six-furlong
dash, the crowd finally alighting on Sligo
as the most eligible, sending him to the
post a2%to 1 favorite, but he never got
near the money. Clacquer, al2to 1 shot,,
tried to make a runaway race of it, and
had Favory 7iot been in the race would
have succeeded. The latter, second choice,
collared him about fifty yards from the
wire and won by a length in 1:15. Nor
mandie finished third.
Rosebud struck another soft spot in the
mile handicap. Having shown herself to
be a mare of some class, she was handled
with kid gloves by the handicapper, who
let her in with 95 pounds in the saddle.
Going to the Dost 7 to 10, she ran under a
"choke" all the way and, never relinquish
ing the lead, won looking backward in
1 :41%. Little Bob was second a couple of
lengths before Ike L, both very ordinary
The fourth race was a mile selling dash,
and was considered a good tning for War
rago, who was made a4to 5 favorite. Ad
die M, the second choice, went out and
made the running until nearing the turn
for home, when she tired out and gave
way to the favorite. The latter appeared
to be winning until Ledalia drew up on
even terms, when in a wild drive she was
beaten out easily by a length in 1 :42> 2 .
TLo last race was also a mile selling
dash, for which imp. Ivy reigned favorite,
opening at 3 to 5 and going to the post 1 to
5. The once erratic Morven upset all cal
cnlations. Backed from 10 down to 6

TRAVER, Cal., Sept. 26.— Burglars
entered Lewis Sweet & Co.'s store,
one of Traver's leading business houses,
last niebt, and secured considerable plun
der. The property stolen consisted mostly
of cutlery and firearms. The nature of the
goods leads to the belief that the forty
thieves are again implicated. The only
clew left the officers to work on were a
couple of old files with which the back
door was pried open.

ago, as it has already produced a remarkable improvement in my health.
My trouble was a lame back and stomach in bad condition. I had been
doctoring for six months, and spent a good deal of money, but medicine
proved of no avail for me. But the Belt gave me relief right away, and is
doing grand work considering that I am 52 years of age and have to be

MANY IMPORTANT TOPICS.
The Question of Dividing California
Into Two Dioceses to Be
The general invention of the Protestant
Episcopal ohurth meets at Minneapolis in
triennial session on the second day of
October. The iishops from the seventy
diocese, of the Vnite/i States will he in
attendance and constitute the House ol
Bishops, corresponding to the National
Senate. The lower house, "the clerical
and lay deputies," is formed of not more
than four clerical delegates and four lay
delegates from each of the several dioceses.
The government of the Episcopal church
is closely analogoiu in formation and
function to our National Government.
This is accounted for by the fact that tl a
men prominent in n-alung the consi
tion of this country,!^ Washington, Jef
ferson and Hamilton, were also tha found
era of the government- of the Protestant
Right Rev. John Williams. Bishop of
Connecticut, as senior Bishop in conse
cration will preside over the Bouse of
Bishops, and the Rev. Dr. i>ix of New
York over^the clerical am. lay deputies.
Bishop Nichols of the California dio
cese is already in the Bast. The r
delegates from this diocese are: Rev. R. C.
Foute, rector of <;nico Church of thia
City; Dr. 11. B. Spalding, rector of St.
John's Church and principal of Trinity
School of this City ; Rev. Dr. Trew of Lc i
Angeles, and Dean Restarick of San
Diego. The lay delegates are: Major
William B. Hooper of the Occidental
Hotel; A N. Drown of this City, J. F.
Towell of Los Aneele* and Judge Winder
of Southern California.
There will be brought before the conven
tion three important matter?, two of which
are of general interest and one bearing di
rectly on the California diocese.
The most prominent matter to be de
cided upofl is ''the proposed revi«i< n of the
constitution of the Protestant Episcopal
church." Next is the division of the dio
cese of this State into a northern and
The question of dividing California into
two dioceses has long been discussed by
the leading members of the church here,
and at the last annual convention at Los
Angeles, during the month of May, it was
unanimously decided to divide the State,
thus lightening the labor of the Bishops.
Before this can take effect, hqwever, both
houses of the general contention must
pass upon it.
A similar case will be considered regard
ing the diocese of Maryland. It is de
sired to set the cry of Washington, which
is bow under the Bishop of Maryland,
apart as a see city, thus creating a new
diocese which will include the District of
Columbia and a few counties in the
southern part of Maryland. Bishop Paret,
now residing in Baltimore, will probably
be transferred to Washington. Bi?hop
Paret, who is a man of great energy, has
secured a large fund to be used in the
building of a mammoth Episcopal
cathedral at Washington, and Mrs. Phoebe
Hearst of California has given money to
erect a girh;' seminary which is to adjoin
