NOON WEDDING AT GRACE
Brilliant Nuptials of Miss
Breeze and Lieutenant
MISS HOOPER'S DEBUT DINNER.
Fred A. Greenwood Gives a Pleasant
Dinner Party at the Bohe
The present season is filled to over
flowing with weddings of social interest,
most of the brides being won from among
tbe most popular belles of the City, and
are so closely associated with gay life that
tbe season has had many vacant places in
the ranks of those who have added so
largely to the attractions of the numerous
hospitable homes thrown open not only to
residents but to strangers as well.
At high noon yesterday Grace Episcopal
Church, corner of Stockton and California
streets, the scene of so many and
notable weddings, presented an animated
appearance. Carriages and stylish equi
pages could be seen hurrying to the church.
The event was the wedding of Miss Mary
Frances Breeze, daughter of Mrs. Thomas
Breeze, and Lieutenant Harry Coupland
Benson, Fourth Cavalry, IT. S. A. The
beautiful Episcopal service was performed
by Rev. Dr. i'oute and his assistant. In
side the guests crowded the aisle seats
long before the hour arrived for the cere
The bride walked up the aisle on the
arm of her brother, looking the very pic
ture of loveliness. The dress she wore
was an exceedingly handsome one,
and was trimmed with old lace. In
her hair she wore a magnificent sun
burst, and she carried in her hand a
beautiful bouquet of lilies of the valley.
Her maid of honor, Miss Louisa Breeze,
was most becomingly gowned in a com
bination of white and yellow. So also were
the bridesmaids, who were Miss Ethel Lin
coln, Miss Eleanor Wood, Miss Kate
Forbes, Miss Emily Schneely.
It was very nearly fifteen" minutes past
12 o'clock when the ushers received the
bridesmaids at the head of the stairs lead
ing up from the Sunday-schoolroom and
preceded them up th« aisle to the chancel.
Behind the ushers — Captain Marion P.
Maus of the First United States Infantry,
Lieutenant William H. Coffin of the Fifth
Artillery, and Lieutenant John A. Lock
wood, Lieutenant M. P. Kutherford, Lieu
tenant W. R. Smedberg and Lieutenant
J. Carson, all of the Fourth Cavalry, to
which the groom is attached — came the
four bridesmaids in couples, and after
them the maid of honor. Miss Louisa
Breeze, followed by the bride, leaning on
the arm of her brother, William F. Breeze,
who gave her away. Arriving at last at
the chancel rail, the groom and his best
man, Lieutenant F. J. R. Landis of Gen
eral Forsyth's staff, met them.
The bright costumes of the ladies made
the scene in the church a very beautiful
one. After the ceremony the bridal party j
was driven to the handsome residence of j
Mrs. Breeze, 1330 Sutter street, where a
most delicious wedding breakfast was
served to about 300 of the most intimate
friends of the bride and groom. Huber's
orchestra, stationed in the hall, played
pleasing music during the entire service of I
the breakfast. The presents were among !
the most beautiful seen in this City and
consisted of almost everything imaginable
for a wedding gift. The house was most
beautifully ornamented with flowers and i
smilax. Quite a number were at small
tables in the same room as the bridal
party. The bride's table was particularly
beautifnl with its decorations of smilax |
and white roses. Miss Eleanor Wood was j
the bridesmaid who cot the floral bouquet j
and Miss Scnneely was the lucky one to
get the ring.
Soon after the breakfast Lieutenant
and Mrs. Benson left the house amid a
shower of rice. Among those at the

One of the prettiest dinners of the early
season was that given by Miss Rose
Hooper, daughter of Major and Mrs. W.
B. Hooper, at the Occidental Hotel last
evening to about twenty of her young
friends, in the large parlor, which was
beautifully decorated, canvased and ar
ranged for the occasion. The table was
diamond shaped and the decorations most
artistically arranged. The colors were
blue and "pink, those of the |table being
pink and the room in blue draperies ar
ranged with large ferns, smilax and lan-
i terns, the whole making a most beautiful
i picture. The guests sat down at table at
about 7: 30 o'clock, after which a jolly dance
I was enjoyed for about two hours, to the
■ strains of Huber's orchestra. Quite a
i number from Mr. Greenwood's dinner
! came in and joined in the dances. Miss
i Hooper's guests were:
Miss Ella Morgan, Miss Bernice Drown, Miss
j Frances Currey, Miss Helen Woodworth, Miss

dinner was that given by Fred A. Green

arranged, in the center of which was the
electric fountain surrounded by a bank of
ferns and red roses. During the service of

RESULT OF CROCKER'S DEFEAT.
Complexion of the Regular Ticket
Greatly Disturbed— Dr. Harkness
to Step Down.
The California Academy of Sciences is
on the eve of a very important change in
its management and control, and the mem
bers are one and all intensely interested in
the outcome of pending events, for the
staid institution of science is about to hold
its annual election, and, though dignified
as becomes its character, it is presently in
volved in campaign excitement.
The one really interesting feature of the
campaign this year is that the academy is
prepared to break away from the tradi
tions of years by electing a new man for
president, and he is none other than
Professor David Starr Jordan, president of
Lelana Stanford Jr. University. With
snch a man at the head of the academy
members solicitous of its welfare are with
out exception free to admit that a new era
is at hand in the field of scientific research
and development in California. And even
more than that, not one of them believes
there will be opposition at the head of the
ticket. Indeed, the old-time opposition in
that regard is dead this year, because it
feels convinced that no stronger man than
Dr. Jordan could be placed at the head of
its ticket, and consequently it would be
futile to make a light. Another reason,
toe, why it is satisfied is they are highly
pleased with Dr. Jordan for president and
tbe displacement of Dr. Harkness, who
has filled the president's chair for several
years in unbroken succession, and practi
cally was dictator in the institution in
tended by the late James Lick to be a pop
ular scientific center where the applied
and useful sciences would be studied and
taught, instead of being an academy of
natural history on a limited scale.
Dr. Harkness has announced his willing
ness to step down from his pedestal in
favor of the eminent scientist from Stan
ford, but he desires at the same time to
retain office in the council, and by that
medium to hold a kind of supervisorial
power over the academy. This, it is
claimed by a member of the opposition,
will, in all probability, provoke a right, for
the reason that many of the men inter
ested in the institution are anxious for a
complete and far-reaching change of ad
ministration.' But up to the present time
no detinite pian of action has been out
lined, only an opinion being formed to the
effect that after the regular nominations
are made the regular ticket, with some
minor changes, will be taken up for a con
Professor Davidson, who was at the head
of the kidependent ticket last year, has
stated positively that he would not accept
a nomination on the council. He is quietly
watching development*!, feeling that things
will come his way in time; that is, that
the academy will change in character
until it becomes what a large proportion
of its members desire it should be — an in
stitution broad in scope and popular with
students of science in general.
Within the last year the academy has
snown signs of renewed energy, and gath
ered together specialists from Stanford and
the University of California. A large num
ber of Stanford profe&sors have joined,
among them being Dr. Jordan and Profes
sors Gilbert and Loomis, while some of
Berkeley's best men have associated them
selves with the institution. This, it is
agreed by the present council and its sup
porters, has elevated and strengthened the
name of the academy, and besides this
year's publications are three times as large
as those of any other scientific institution
in America, the Smithsonian Institution
Something happened very quietly in the
academy three months ago which, so some
members say, has undone all this, how
ever. In fact, what came to pass on this
particular occasion has caused a rumpus
between the men of science and those of
business in the management that really
changed the whole complexion of the
It brought mit the vigorous protest of
Colonel C. F. Crocker, and that meant an
At a special meeting held to consider the
amendments to the constitution two im
portant resolutions were voted down with
the rest. One of those was an amendment
giving the trustees power to make invest
ments or loan money outside San Fran
cisco so that a higher rate of interest rnipht
be secured than was possible under the
constitution limiting Joans to this City
and County. Another provided for nomi
nating members of the nominating com
mittee in open meeting. Colonel Crocker
was particularly anxious that these amend
ments be carried, but on motion of Theo
dore Hiltell allproposea amendments were
tabled, C. F. Crocker, E. J. Molera and
W. C. Burnett voting for them. But they
were defeated by four votes. The meeting
was kept very "quiet, though many mem
bers claimed that the defeat was caused by
Dr. Harkness' influence on the council and
As matters stood the trustees and coun
cil selected a nominating committee, that
in turn reciprocated by training the
same men for office, and so it happened
that for five years past the management,
headed by Dr. Harkness, has remained
practically unchanged. With one lone ex
ception, the same set of men did the nomi
nating for five years, and they usually
appeared once a year to make nomi
It has been stated more than once that
the Stanford influence had much to do
with making such a state of affairs pos
sible, and that Colonel Crocker stood by
Dr. Harkness all along. But the treat
ment accorded Crocker's pet resolutions
turned him against the president, which
fact is fairly well understood on both sides,
and now he is using his power to bring
about a revolution.
The nominations will be made within a
week or ten days, and meanwhile con
siderable quiet campaigning will be done
on the '"regular" side, with a view of
reaching the desired end.

The property belongs to the estate of
John S. Doe and to Bartlett Doe his sur
viving brother, who, with another brother,
Charles Doe, is executor of John Doe's
estate. The property in question adjoins
the Murphy property on Jones and Mar

Gate avenue from Market street. A gen
erous appraisement a year and a half ago
placed the value of the property at $450,

it for $600,000.
It was this offer from Mr. Spreckels
which the executors and Bartlett Doe per
sonally desired to accept. It was much
more than the property was' worth and
they wished to take advantage of the offer.
Mr. Spreckels owns the property on the
east, and through his attorneys stated
such fact to be his reason for offering so
much more than the aopraised value. The
heirs of John S. Doe were the objectors, and
upon a showing that the executors had no
investment in mind in which to put the
$600,000— for Mr. Spreckels offered to pay
in cash — the court refused to tyrant the
order. Bartlett Doe, who owns a half in

to sell. He has lost the difference between

THE STEER WAS "NEXT"
An Intimation of Awful Things
That Happened at the
A "BEEF" IN A BARBEE-SHOP.
Seventeen Cyclones That Struck a
Peaceful Tonsorial Scene in
The Potrero got up another entertain
ment with plenty of ginger in . it night be
fore last. The show didn't last but ninety
seven seconds, but yesterday it was enter
taining the Potrero about as keenly as
though it was going on yet.
The scene was the neatest little gem of a
barber-shop on the other side of the draw
bridges,'and the leading part was taken by
a big, wild-eyed and snorting steer, who
thought he would see if he wasn't "next."
Of course, steers and vaqueros are every
day features of the Potrero streets, and it is
nothing new for cattle to dash along with
tails up in those peculiar rigidly graceful
gestures that a steer's tail may make, and
it is nothing new for peopie to dodge out
of the way — that is one of the conditions of
good health out there — but never until
Tuesday evening had a red steer been
known to interfere with tonsorial purposes
on Kentucky street.
The steer was one of a drove that Moffitt
& Levy expect to clear Z]4 cents a pound
on, and the steers were being steered from
some place or other to Butchertown by
four cowboys, who were doing the neces
sary amount of dashing and swearing.
This was 7:30 p. K. sharp, and in the little
barber-shop at 1532 Kentucky street W. M.
Ovellar, the proprietor, was giving a peace
ful ten-cent shave to Sam Quinn, who has
a job as motorman on the electric road.
It was a one-chair shop that Ovellar took
great pride in fixing up. His nice gilt
mirror was a bargain from a Mission-street
auctioneer, his bay rum bottle had a rsd
ribbon on it, his dainty powder bowl was
all over with blue and green and gold, and
on the wails were the baby that love 3 the

"Does it work all right?" inquired the
barber, tenderly, as he turned Quinn s fine
head where it lay and put on another little
dab of lather, without paying any atten
tion to the sudden hullaballoo outside that
merely meant "steers!" Nobody cared if
a big steer had made a dash for liberty and
if cowboy Bill Harney was swearing like a
cowboy as he rode hard to head off the
The steer had been headed right by the
barber-shop, and he was madder than the
yaquero. Whatever may have been the
ideas and motives of the long-horned,
panting, dusty, raging animal, he shot
through that barber-shop door like seven
teen cyclones. The shop was hardly big
enough for a stall, and what happened is
indescribable. Quinn couldn't start to get
up until cha?r and all ware knocked galley
west in a heap, from which the lathered
Quinn jerked himself and shot into the
street. Ovellar jumped to the wall in ter
ror, cut himself with the razor in his hand
and fled. The steer struck the wall in
front of him in a second, reared up on his
hind legs and half fell around the other
way in the crowded space, wrecking the
furniture in a general smash-up.
The steer caught a glance at" himself in
the mirror close to his head, and the mir
ror and all the pretty things about it were
shivered and wrecked. The door closed it
self, and the terrified animal thrashed
around for a full minute in fright and
rage trying to get out or get even, and
then somebody in the crowd that left the
pedro game in the saloon next door and
rushed out had the presence of mind to
throw open the door and dodge. Then the
steer shot out and the vaquero rushed him
in his proper way to the shambles.
The crowd grew and laughed in an
agony of merriment at the funniest thing
the Potrero had seen for many a day, and
they even laughed lit to kill themselves at
the pale and rueful barber who quickly
sized up the details of the wreck inside.
"That's the closest shave you ever got,"
said Harry Breen to Quinn, who stood up
later while the barber took off the worst
