been no lull in carnival festivities and the
crowds of visitors who were present at the
opening are staying to see the great floral
Interesting were the athletic games wit
nessed by Queen Lillian and her fair and
gallant escort at Recreation Park. Base
ball, basket-ball and varied field sports in
which the cracks of Palo Alto and Berke
ley were arrayed caused unusual interest
to center in the day's events.
To-night a diversified entertainment
given by students of the Stanford Univer

Varied and most entertaining is the pro
gramme for to-morrow. In the afternoon
will be held the League of American Wheel
men meet at Recreation Park, under the
auspices of the Garden City Cyclers.
Old King Cole and his cohorts will
make a wild demonstration in this city to
morrow evening as a grand finale of the
carnival. The King is determined
to wrest the scepter from Queen
Lillian. It is promised that the
King's triumphal pageant will be as
grand and terrible as the demonstration
of the Queen was gorgeous and beautiful.
Company B of the National Guard to-day
completed arrangements by which they
will be able to perform their duties as

Tbe Arabian degree Klau will also aid
tbe King in his invasion and resumption
of his power with some mighty demon

It will be illuminated with hundreds of

STANFORD'S GREAT DAY.
Baseball and Other Sports at Agricul-
SAN JOSE, Cal., May B.— This was
Stanford day, and at 10 o'clock the student
body of the great university arrived, about
500 strong, on a special train. They were
met at the depot by Roncovieri's band
and escorted through tne streets of the
city. The students wore the cardinal of
the university, and at frequent intervals
along their line of March gave their col
At Market and Santa Clara streets the
students broKe ranks and made their way
to the pavilion and Agricultural Park,
where a baseball game with Berkele y and
field-day exercises were held.
The baseball game drew an attendance
of about 4000, a large part of whom were
ladies. The Stanford team wore cardinal
suits, while the Berkeley boys were dressed
in blue and gold. The playing was excit
ing and the game was one of the best ever

Neither side scored untilthe third inning,

like the blue and gold wouldwin.

The field-day sports in the afternoon
drew about 5000 spectators. Queen Lillian
and her maids of honor were on the scene
early, their gaily decorated vehicies at
tracting considerable attention. They
were interested spectators of the efforts of
Stanford's agile students, and did not
leave the track until late in the afternoon.
During the progress of the athletic sports
and the basket- ball game Runcovieri's
band enlivened the sports with an
The first event was a 100-yard dash, in
which the contestants were J. P. Bernhard,
Evans Holbrook, George Toombs, J. P.
Colliver and H. Reynolds. The race was
an easy one for Bernhard, who led all tue
way. Harry Reynolds, who has made
quite a reputation as a hurdler, showed
up well in this contest, crossing the line
less than a yard behind the leader. George
Toombs was third, Holbrook fourth and
Coliiver fifth. Bern bard went the distance
in the fast time of 10 1-5 seconds.
The entries for the high jump were:
George Toombs, H. B. Reynolds, C. S.
Dole and R. L. Wilber. This contest was
won by Toombs, who cleared 5 feet 5%
The exhibition of pole-vaulting by C. S.
Dole aroused quite a little enthusiasm.
Dole's record, which is also the record of
the Pacific Coast, is 10 feet 10 inches, and
he made an attempt to-day to make a still
higher flight. He vaulted over the stick
at an altitude of 10 feet with ease, but 11
feet was just a trifle too much for him.
Once it looked as if he had succeeded, but
just as the Stanford yell began to circulate
the right arm of the vaulter touched the
stick and down it came, the Stanford yell
ending in a whistle as it fell. After a half
dozen creditable attempts Dole concluded
to let bis record stand at 10 feet 10 inches.
In the hammer-throwing contest two
hammers were used, one weighing twelve
pounds and the other sixteen. Dorn of
the University of California threw the
12-pound hammer 180 feet, and C. M.
Ficfcert of Stanford University tnrew the
16-pound hammer 130 feet.
The broad jump was declared off, and in

There was no 16-pound shot handy, so
Fickertand R. L. Wilt>er threw a 12-pound
shot. Wilber won the match, throwing
the shot 54 feet 11 inches, beating the
coast record 9 feet 4 inches.
As a 12-pound shot is seldom used, there
has been little competition for a record
with that weight.
The 220-yard dash was an interesting
contest in which fast time was male. J.

P. Baldwin was umpire and Charles D.
The game was close and exciting. The
first half of the game was played without
either side scoring a goal, but in the last
half the contestants called on their re- I
serve energy and went after the ball with
renewed vigor. In their enthusiasm both
sides committed a few fouls, but no hard
feeling was engendered. The sophomores
made the first goal, but in a few seconds
the agile freshmen evened up the score.
Six more goals were made during the re
mainder of the pame, four of which went
to the sophomores and two to the fresh
men. At the call of time the score stood
5 to 3 in favor of the sophomores.
The field events were given under the
auspices of the following committee: C. F.

FORESTERS AT WATS ONFILLE.
The Grand Court Conclude* lit Station
by Initatti»o Officer*.
WATSONVILLE, Cal., May B.— When
the Grand Court of Foresters convened
this morning there was a marked decrease
in the attendance, due no doubt to the
activity displayed at the banquet last even
ing. The entire morning session was taken
up with the report of the law committee.
Several amendments relating to the dis
position of appeals and others, which were
submitted with a view of making certain
ambiguous clauses in the Dresent laws
more clear and explicit, were adopted.
Upon recommendation of the committee
on acts and decisions the report of the
executive committee was approved, with
the exception of that part relating to in
surance. When the last Supreme Court
virtually abolished the endowment fund,
several members of the order formed the
Foresters' Mutual Life Association in Los
Angeles, proposing to issue cheap insur
ance to members of the order only. The
executive council recommended that the
plans and purposes of that association be
approved and that it receive the cordial
encouragement and support of tne execu
As it has been shown by the member
ship in California at previous sessions of
tbe Grand Court that the insurance fea
ture was not desired, the members of the
visiting board are to be allowed $5 per
diem and actual railroad fare while travel
ing on official visits. It was decided tbat
any member who resides outsiae of the
jurisdiction of his own county must take
out a medical roll curd, and when makin ■
application to be placed on the medical
roll of a court he must pass a satisfactory
examination before ihe physician of the
court to which he makes such application.
This will not apply to those members who,
already having cards, are desirous of hav
ing them renewed upon their expiration.
When the consideration ot the erand
secretary's report of the estimated ex
penses for the fiscal year came up the
economists of the order got down to busi
The budget called for an outlay of $9590.
This was cut down about. $330 by reduc
inp the allowance to the visiting board
and cutting off the customary subsidy of
$120 to the Forester of America, a fraternal
monthly paper. There has been a great
deal of talk in the subordinate courts for
thejpast year and a great many delegates
had been instructed to make every effort
to have the per capita tax reduced." It was
clearly shown, however, that such a course
would seriously cripple the extension of
the work of the order and that the final
result would be retrogression and the per
capita tax for the coming year was fixed
at 80 cents.
Tne incoming executive council was in
structed to procure the new regalia for
past grand chief rangers and present tbe
same to all such past officers in good
standing. The thanks of the grand body
were unanimously voted to the press of
WatsonviKe and the San Francisco Call
for the clear and succinct reports of the
proceedings of this session, and three
cheers were given for the ladies and citi
zens of Watsonville for tbe hospitality
extended to the visitors. The installation
of officers was performed t>y Deputy Su
preme Chief Ranger C. P. RenJon, after
which the Grand Court adjourned sine die.
WOODLAND WOMEN WORKERS.
District Hoard of Missions in Session.
WOODLAND, Cal., May B.— The Chris
tian Woman's Board of Missions for the dis
trict comprising Woodland and Sacramento
was in session at the Christian Church
this afternoon. The visiting delegates are
Mesdames Adams, Jones, Wallace, Fors
man, Hignet, Wagner, McLean, Lusk,
Collier and Denton and Misses Marie Gar
ret and Phoebe Craig.
The meeting was called to order by Mrs.
A. Li. Boggs, the president, who also con
ducted the devotional exercises and deliv
ered an address of welcome. The response
was made by Mrs. J. E. Denton of Sacra
mento. The audience was then favored
with a solo by Mrs. Arthur McLean. Mrs.
R. D. Adams deMvered the district man
ager's address, in which she reviewed the
work of tbe board during the year.
Mrs. T. S. Spaulding read a paper on
ths subject, "This Is the One Thing I Do,"
which was full of thought and feeling.
This was followed by a solo by Mrs. W. H.
Grant. A paper on the topic, "How Can
We Interest Our Women in Missionary
Work?" was read by Mrs. Collier of Sac
ramento. This was followed by a general
discussion. A trio was rendered by Mes
dames Forsman. Wallace and Jones of the
Sacramento choir. A paper on "Reasons
Why Our Women Are Not Interested,"
was read by Mrs. H. J. Schuler. Tnis was
followed by a discussion, participated in
by the members generally. The next in
order was a duet by Mesdaraes Jones and
Forsman. Mrs. C.W. Thomas read a paper
on "Seasons in Which Our Women Should
Be Interested." A discussion followed on
this paper, led by Mrs. Powers and parti
cipated in only by members of the Second
Christian Church. Mrs. Sue E. Grant ed

Meet at the Capitol and JMgcum the
SACRAMENTO, Cal., May 8. — The
State Horticultural Society met in the
State Capitol this morning, and tbe day
was consumed in discussion on various
matters pertaining to the fruit interests of
the State at large. From all reports it
would seem that the damage by frost has
not been uuiversal throughout the State,
serious damage being confined to scat
tered localities, and the outlook for fruit
growers is far brighter than was at first
expected after the iate frosts. At the
afternoon session the members listened to
a lecture on the Irrigation of deciduous
fruits by Professor E. W. Hiigard of the
California University, and a general dis
cussion of irrigation problems followed.

HEALDSBURG, Cal., May B.— A cooler
wind ushered in to-day and a slight fog
was perceptible to early risers. There
were some of these — particularly those
who had "made a night of it" — and the
streets were soon filled with people, many
of whom were willing to rest from carni
vals for another year. The band began to
play, and the throngs to pass and repass,
in happy confusion. Some few took the
early trains for home, but most of the
visitors remained to see the entire round
of events. Tue merry-go-round, the lemon*
ade and icecream stands took in their
share of stray nickels, and even the phono
graph man, with his squeaky, rubber
tubed machine, delighted the small boys
and country maidens and reaped quite a

went up with his head in a sling, suspend
ed by the neck, gave some acrobatic per
formances in the air, and descended by
means of a parachute from a height of
nearly 1000 feet.
Following this was an exhibition of
fancy and difficult riding, picking up ob
jects from tbe ground on a running horse,
etc, by "Buck" Coleman of Oregon. This
was quite well done, but when he pro
posed to ride a wild horse on tbe public
street the city dads objected and relegated
the show to a field at tne edj;e of town.
The crowd having adjourned the fiery and
untanv d mustang was brought forth. It
turned out to be a neat three-year-old who
objected somewhat to the rough manner
in which he was being v ed, but showed no
symptoms of vicioustiess. Vigorous spur
ing and "lambasting" elicited a succes
sion of gentle jumps, and while the throng
yelled the caballero dismounted in tri

quite forgotten his young tricks offered a

their departure at 2 o'clock, leaving many

ings for their hosts of Healrlsburg.
They marched down to the depot with
flying banners, escorted by bands of
ratific, and by those who were sorry to see
them go they will always be welcomed on
tht'ir future returns to Hcaldsburg.
Without any intermission the people
wended their way to tbe wheelmen's meet,
at the east side of town. The bicycle races
at the track were fairly well attended, the
afternoon being very pleasant, though a
trifle windy. The judges were Cowan,
Morse, Shrader and Elliot, with Barnes as
teferee. While waiting for the crowds to
nil up tbe grand stand Messrs. Near and
Smith gave an exhibition mile on a tan
dem, making the run in 2:35 3-5.
The Cloyerdale band having arrived the
races began at 3 o'clock, of which the fol
lowing Is a summary:
The first race was between A. V. Starks, L.
H. Stewart, C. Bond and E. Delvan trial, two

The wind blew quite strongly toward
the end of the races, raising some dust.
Two accidents occurred in the final race.
Tantau ran off the track and fell, bruising
himself slightly. Altogether the meet was
considered quite satisfactory and every
body was well pleased.
Later in the afternoon the Calithumpi
ans again made their appearance and the
King bid farewell to the kingdom which
he was not powerful enough to control,
giving way to the Queen, who will to
morrow abdicate in favor of Uncle Sam,
leaving the sweetest memories of her short
but glorious reign. The Prime Minister
has already laid down his insignia of office
and retired to private life, while the Cabi
net is on the point of resigning. The
beautiful valley of Sotoyome will resume
its usual placid appearance on Saturday
morning, leaving the floral carnival of
1896 as a memory of which all may well be
proud and to which our visitors will refer
as to happy days.
AUBURN'S FETE IS ON.
A Pretty Exhibit— The Optra- House a
Bower of Beauty.
AUBURN, Cal., May B.— The Auburn
festival of flowers is on and a very pretty
exhibit it is. The opera-house is a perfect
bower of beauty. A veritable hanging
tropical garden covers the entire gallery,
and palms, coleus, azaleas, lilies and
spruce and cedar trees are arranged
in artistic confusion. From the ceil
ing and wails over the parquet huge
garlands of evergreen are drooped, and
the walls are matted with tissue-paper
roses set on a charming ivy background,
while hundreds of bright-winged Dutter
flies are apparently flitting from flower to
flower. On either side of the hall the
booths are arranged, thus leaving the
center for promenading. The tableaux
entertainment on the stage has never been
equaled in this city. The show will be
continued to Saturday night at the request
