THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION.
Celebration of the Feast Yesterday.
Paulists Praised by Monsignor
The celebration yesterday of the feast of
the Immaculate Conception, generally ob
served in the Catholic churches of the
City, was supplemented by the opening
lecture of a series which the Faulists will
deliver at St. Mary's Church during the
week on subjects of interest to Protestants.
Tn'e subjects to be treated will deal solely
■with Catholic doctrine and teaching.
Father Clark lectured to a large assem
blage on the science of God last night. He
proved the existence of God from evidence
which nature and science adduced.
The following letter, commending the
new departure ot the Pauksts. was received
yesterday from Monsignor Satolli:

Francis Abp. Satoi.li, Apostolic Delegate.
To Rev. Henry 11. Wyman. Superior of the
l'aulists, San Francisco, Cal.
Key. Father Wyman preached the ser
mon at the mass yesterday from the text:
"I will put enmities between thee and the
woman ; she shall crush thy head and thou
shait iie in wait for her heel." Genesis
••The doctrine of the immaculate con
ception,'" said Father Wyman, "gives us a
better understanding of the holiness of
God, inasmuch as it immeasurably exalts
the incarnation of the second person of the
Holy Trinity. Christ manifested to men
his divinity by saying: 'If you had known
me you would also know "the Father; he
that seeth me seeth the Father also.' In
no way could we have so perfect an idea of
the godhead as we have through the incar
•'Sin is a malady so far reaching in its
consequences as to affect all generations.
When our first parents had sinned satan
doubtless knew and rejoiced that not only
two individuals had fallen, but millions of
their descendants. His exultatio.n was,
however, happily cut short, for Cod, the
omnipotent one, said to him, 'I will put
enmities between thee and the woman;
she snail crush thy head and thou shall lie
in wait for her heel.'
"God revealed the immaculate concep
tion of the Virgin to Adam before he re
vealed the incarnation and redemption of
mankind, because the immaculate con
ception is a prelude to tho incarnation and
without it the incarnation would be im
possible. How, it might be asked, could
Mary have been preserved from the taint
of original sin? I answer that it is as
ea?y for omnipotence to prevent one from
incurring the stain of sin as it is for him
to forgive it after evil has been committed.
Holy scripture teaches us that the proph
ets Jeremiah and St. John the Baptist
were sanctified before birth.
"Is it not reasonable then to suppose
that God would confer upon her who was
chosen to be the mother of the incarnate
word a greater favor by preventing her
from incurring the stain of original sin?"
Father Wyman went on to say that
the belief in the immaculate conception is
the touchstone of the Christian faith in its
"The Bishop? of the Catholic church in
the United States," he said, "years aero
petitioned the Holy See to make the feast
of the Immaculate Conception the paternal
feast of the United States, knowing well
that she who first crushed tue serpent's
head would preserve the church here in
America free from error and make it active
in zeal for tiie salvation of souls. This
feast is also our great day, and it seems to
me providential that our mission work,
so highly commended by Monsignor Sa
tolli, should begin here in San Irrancisco
on this day."

a certain line for some distance and then

been made to accommodate the curve of
the railroad coming from the south. If
that curve was moved eastward a short
distance then the highway could be built
on a straight line. This I mentioned to

BISHOP "OF ALASKA.
An Appointment That Interests BptMO*
p;ilians of California.
Rev. Peter Trimble Rowe lias been
elected by the Bishops of the Protestant
Episcopal Church to be Bishop of the mis
sionary diocese of Alaska. The ceretnouv
took place last week in St. George's
Church, New York. The conseerator was
Bishop Doane of Albany, N. V., and ht>
was assisted by the Right Rev. Henry C.
Potter, Bishop of New York; the Right
Rev. Thomas F. Daries, Biehop oi Michi
gan; Bishops Brewer of Montana. White
ker of Pennsylvania, Wells of Spokane,
Brooke of Oklahoma, ijtarkcy of Newark
and Leonard of Nevada.
The. Right Rev. Peter Trimble Kowc,
Bishop of Alaska, looks much younger
than his 39 y dan. He is rery diffident in
speaking of himself and ol his new dio
cese. He is a Canadian by birth and was
graduated from the University of Toronto
in 1878, and four years later received the
degree of Master of Arts. For live years
after his graduation he spent his time as a
missionary priest in the Indian reserva
tion in Garden River, Ontario, along the
shores of Lak# Huron, ana on Cockburn
and St. Joseph's islands.
He was appointed to the mission of
Saulte .Ste. Marie in July, .1884, and there
found six communicants to begin work
with. He rapidly established missions at
Bay Mills. Pine Rest and many other
places within his range of influence.
Daring the thirteen yean he had been at

in educational work, and was chosen

FIREMEN OUT FOR VOTES
The Department Mustering Its
Forces to Fight Buck
Hints Being Dropped That the Regu
lations May Not Count ia
The Fire Department employes have
received explicit instructions to round up
their friends and use every manner of
political means to make an end of Bijck
ley. These instructions have come from
the higli officers in the department, and
were promulpated in all <>f the truck and
engine houses in the City on last Friday
and Saturday mornings.
The District Engineers attended to this
much of the scheme. At every station in
their respective territories the foremen,
engineers, drivers, stokers, extramen and
suOsticutes were lined up to learn a bit of
the elaborate plan of action which is to
engulf the Buckley people in the rent
earth of the next municipal battle-field.
With due formality and solemnity they
were directed to get out and hustle. It
was incidentally remarked that some very
important things were at stake- -for exam
ple, heads — and that neither tim*» nor op
portunity could be conveniently spared
until the greatest amount of hustling on
record had been accomplished.
This was quite enough for the men to
whom the fearful mandate was conveyed.
Since Saturday morning they have been at
work with admirable energy. Men in all
condition of department servitude have
hurried around mustering their political
friends and straining every nerve to ac
complish Buckley's ruin and save their
jobs under the beneficent rule of Mr.
Rainey. In all of the newly organised
district clubs the vitror which character
izes the efforts of the Fire Dcpartme.it is a
tonic of interest and anxious discussion.
Numerous instances are cited to show
how actively the round-up is being at
tended to, and the political duty which
has so far been imposed upon the firemen
has contributed a lively feature to the
turbulence of the preliminary programme.
The men are in a fearful mood over the
general uncertainty of things which has
confronted them so early in the right.
They are abundantly alive to the serious
ness of the situation. It is a matter of
self-preservation with them, and they pro
pose taking no chances of losing tlie ex
hilaratine job of fire-fighting when there
Is a city to pay for it. 2sotallof them are
inclined to talk about the matter, some
professing to have heard nothing about
political instructions. But. these are not
the greater number. It is generally ad
mitted that if Buckley issues a victor he
will immediately contrive to depose Sulli
van, and the chief of his appointment will
also' ingeniously contrive to make things
interesting for district engineers, foremen
and nearly everybody else in the depart
ment. On -the other hand, they see no
danger in having Rainey at the head of
things, and their efforts in the direction of
his saccess are well combined and vigor
As far as the men have heard there
has been nothing said as yet about the de
partment over-riding the* regulations and
taking a more active part in the campaign.
Tt was remarked, yesterday, however, by
men who know something about such
matters, that if the Buckley- Rainey con
test becomes too close for comfort the Fire
Department will not hesitate to mix with
its opponents in the political arena. It is
expressly provided among the regulations
that "no member of the Fire Department
shall be a delegate in person or L»y proxy
to, or a member of, any political or parti
san convention, State central committee
or county committee, nor, while a member
of said department shall be a candidate
before any convention for any political
office." Just in what manner tlio over
riding of this reeulation might be effected
is not made known, but the probability of
that sort of thing is vaguely suggested al
OPPOSED TO BLOOMERS.
Mrs. Chlsliolm Says the Wearing of
'! In in Ig Kuining Young Girls.
ROCHESTER, N. V., Nov. 30.— Mrs.
William Chisholm of this city has been be
seeching District Attorney Forsythe for
three days past to exercise his authority
and prevent the appearance of Dlooruer
clud women in the streets of Rochester.
Mrs. Chisholm resides in Fulton avemie,
one of the streets most frequented by bicy
clists. She told the District Attorney to
day that the wearing of bloomers" was
ruining young girls by the hundred. The
woman's efforts for reform have been par
ticularly directed against the bloomer girls
who use Fulton avenue for a speedway.
Said Mrs. Chisholm: "Why, you have
no idea how these bloomer girls carry on.
They ride up and down so boldly, and last
night they sang 'Only One Girl"' and 'Her
Golden Hair was Hanging,' and all those
low songs, so you could hear them blocks
away. I know their names, and 1 want to
have something done about it. I've got a
mission Irom heaven to preach against
bicycles. I would soon«r see my daughter

The record of real estate transactions
published Saturday contained two trans
fers of land comprised in the San Miguel
rancho that show the first official recogni
tion of the claim set up by the Noe heirs
to an undivided half interest in the dis
puted division of San Francisco. They
were as follows:
Sunnysifle Lrnid Company and California
Title Insurance and Trust Company to I). \V.
Grant, lots 41 and 42, block 9, Sunriyside: .f 10.
Miguel, Vincent and Catalina Noe and Cata
lina Spiivalo to same, undivided half interest
in lots 12, 18, 10, 17, 20, 21, 24, 25, 41, 42,
block 9, same; $10.
It will be seen from these records thatD.
\V. Grant, who purchased ten lots in Sun
nyside—which lies within the San Micuel
rancho boundary lines — from the Sunny
side Land Company and the California
Title Insurance and Trust Company, paid
money to the Noe heirs for a quitclaim
deed to the property. The consideration is
stated at $10, though this is merely nomi
nal, being the ponular amount given in
transfers where the parties interested de
sire to keep the real amount secret.
I'udolph Mour of the Sunnyside Land
Company said he had not heard of the
quitclaim deed to the Noe heirs.
"They nave not served notice of suit on
us or Mayor Sutro or the Golden State
Company, as they seem to go after the
small individual* owners altogether. No
doubt a scare of this kind can frighten
people into buying quitclaim deeds.
Answering a suit is expensive, even if you
win in the end, for attorneys must be paid
to defend your case. And so it is that
small holders would rather secure a quit
claim deed for a small sum than take
chances with a law suit. This is the lirst
of the kind. We sold the land tc Mr.
Grant last July and the deed went on rec
ord yesterday. In our own case we will
light any such claim on our property."
Attorney Koscialowski, who represents
the Noe heirs, explained that as Mr. Grant
was working for a salary and made his
tionie on the land a quitclaim deed was
given him lor a consideration by the heirs
of the old Spanish pioneer.
"We do not intend to sue roor people
who have made their homes on the land,"
said he. "It is only the unoccupied por
tions that we are claiming to hold a half
interest in, but the men with homes can
have clear title from us for a nominal con
"A few dollars; enough to make it a le
"We consider that we have a just claim I
to the land and intend pressing it. Why,
already the Superior Court of San Fran
cisco has recognized the merit in our
claims. Any one can see for himself by
looking at the Law Journal that what
I say is true. Here it is."
The attorney pointei to the ''Law and
Motion' column, where, under the head
ing of Judge Sanderson's department, ap
peared the record that the demurrers of
Annie T. Dunph\ , John Holman, Robert
McMillan and Armand Durrat were over
ruled by .Judge Sanderson. A motion to
set aside default of W. B. Walkup was
"Here is evidence that our complaint
acainst defendants holding land in the i
San Miguel rancho is not demurrable. j
These persons hold land in the San Mi- j
guel rancho and demurred to our general |
complaint, which is already weil known, j
but the court decided that demurrers |
could not be considered. That settles it
that our complaint must be replied to in
the usual legal form. It was not noticed
by the newspapers, but then we are going
ahead quietly with our work and shall J
keep right on. So far this is a victory."

The rifle shooting at the Shell Mound

practice in order to keep their percentage
as high as possible. The light yesterday
was excellent, and there was just enough
wind to carry off the smoke.

A number of the companies of the
Eighth and Fifth regiments are indulging
in active practice and preparing for the
100 men match between picked sharp
shooters of the two regiments. The match
will be for a trophy, and each man will
lire ten shots. The original conditions of
the match may be disturbed by the recent
reorganization, which will throw several
of the companies into other regiments.
Yesterday a number of men from Com
pany F of Oakland were practicing for the
match and made the following scores:

racehorse, though not in the same class as
Carbine. He will be sold here at auction.
Musket was originally imported to Aus

the time by the shrewd Britishers that he
was of little or no account, but he proved
to be the sire of so many great winners
thatthere has since been a demand both

Musket's sons, about three years ago.

last spring and received injuries from
which he died. Artillery, if he arrives
safely, will be the only Musket stallion in
