J. M. Chretien, chairman of the State
Central Committee, was introduced amid
loud applause. He t aid : "It is the inten
tion of the committee in charge not to

"Your enthusiasm is full of demonstra
tion," he said, "that not only are your
hearts in sympathy with McKinley's nom
ination, but that when the proper time
arrives you will cast your ballots for him
and insure us surcease from the dull timo?
and business stagnation inaugurated by
the Democrats at the beginning of their
last term in office."
Hon. Irving M. Scott was introduced,
and when the applause which greeted Mr.
Scott had subsided he proceeded :
"We are not here to-night to make any
arguments. I come here representing the
manufacturing interests of this City to
exult in the fact that the sun of prosperity
is rising at last."
The speaker was here interrupted by the
arrival of the Howard Republican Club,
headed by a band and Judge Campbell,
with flowing whiskers and silky tile, wav
ing an American flag. Cheers were given
for everybody from McKinley to the
youngest San Francisco Republican.
When at last the excitement had sub
sided Mr. Scott resumed.
"Never since we nominated Abraham
Lincoln," he said, "have we entered upon a \
campaign with such hope of big things to i
be done. The man whom we have cho: ; en
belongs to no corporations, does not cut
his own coupons. If you come to the sup
port of McKinley and set the wheels of
industry in motion we can look forward
again to unexampled prosperity. With
the Oregon on the water, with Perkins in
the Senate, and McKinley in the Presi- j
dential chair we have nothing to fear. I
ask you to rally about our candidate next
November and give an overwhelming ma
jority for protection to American manu
factures and industries.
"I now take great pleasure in introduc
ing to you the able exponent of protec
tion, the gentleman who has so ably rep
resented you in Congress for the past
tnree terras, Eugene F. Loud."
"Talking upon this occasion," began
Loud, "is wholly unnecessary. Whateve r
may have been our preference personally
fora nominee, the people of the United
States have risen en masse and declared
their desire for a leader in the person of
that standard-bearer of protection, Wiiliam
"All that remains for me to say is, Go

Then peace and harmony will reign.
" And the nlßht utmll be filled with mnsic,
And the cares that infest the day
Shnll fold their tents Ukfl the Abraba
And as silently steal away."
At the conclusion of Congressman
Loud's address Senator Perkins made a
brief speech introducing the Hon. M. M.
"i am not here to represent the manu
facturing interests or any particular
branch of industry," said Estee. "I repre
sent the boys of this campaign. I prophesy
that we boys are going to elect a Repub

Miss Anthony was greeted with a great
burst of applause.
"It was left for the Republican party to
sweep away the race line that violated re
publican principles, and now it has been
again left to the Republican party to sweep
away tbe sex line," she said. "And it has

rights to all, irrespective of race or sex."
After Mis** Anthony had finished, Julius
Kahn denounced, in ringing terms. Demo
cratic misrule and the much-promised
Democratic "campaign of education."
Mr. Kahn was followed by Judge
Cooney, who attacked vigorously the cul
pable mistakes in the Democratic finan
cial policy and paid a glowing tribute to
the Republican candidate.
Colonel Eddy, president of the Phcenix
Republican Club, followed with a rousing
oration, in which he said that if McKin
ley is a poor man it is because he has
chosen to be honest, and that as sure as
the sun vail rise and set on the 7th of
November next the news will come from
the North, the East, the South and the
West that McKinley is elected to the
higiieet ofiice in the gift of tbe Nation.

Do you not see a picture there? No?
Look again, for I see it clearly; I see a
man writing. He is writing with a pen
formed of the quill of an American eagle,
shot from its pinions as it took its course
through the fields of light toward the sun.
As he writes his brain is inspired by
eternal truth, and his heart is fortified by
the supreme courage of conviction. What
is he writing? He is writing the great

can see the words — I read, "When in the

I see another man writing. He is
writing the liberation of the industrial
classes of America. He hears the shouts
of the millions as they cheer him on in
his great battle for the enfranchisement
of American labor. Strong, vigorous,
active, valiant, patriotic and firm, he
writes the glad battle-cry of the people—
"Protection to American industries!"

quent encomium upon the champion of

A. E. Branch in an enthusiastic speech
predicted the overwhelming success of the
grand old party next November.
Ex- Assemblyman Frank Powers called
np the memory of James G. Blame as a
companion picture for Wnham McKinley.
Chairman Perkins introduced Edward
Sweeney, who convulsed the audience
with a skillfully rendered Irish-dialect ac
count of McKinley taking possession of
the White House. After the laughter had
subsided Colonel Roberts was introduced
by the chairman.
Colonel Roberts began with a humor
ous anecdote of a little girl who had been
sick. She had been fed en broth and
other so-called nourishing foods, he said,
until she was tired, and finally flatly re
fused to take any more nourishment.
"I am sick of nourishment and I want
some food," she said.
"So it 5s with us. We are tired of nour
ishment as it is administered to us by
Cleveland, and want some food. Next
November we will get it."
The meeting broke up with a rousing
three cheers for McKinley and the Repub

Cheers Reverberated to the Echo
and the Flags Flew.
This is the year of the people and of the
Republican party !
Like the pnenix the Republican party
never dies. In heat or cold, success or de
feat, it arises with the bugle of protection
and prosperity echoing in the front rank.
The local parade entered Mechanics'
Pavilion last night under a bread canopy.
The arch of the entrance was illuminated
with red fire and the cheering legions
marched in with all the enthusiasm that
ancient Romans entered their triumphal
arches. It was such enthusiasm as fore
tells victory. Bonfires made the pathway
bright and roushing cheers enthused the
marching thousands to a proud and confi
Inside they marched around and around
the arena. Brass bands played patriotic
airs, and the hats an J handkerchiefs that
were continually in the air were almost
countless. The canopy of red fire under
which the procession had made the en
trance had died away, but that which took
its place was a cheer and shout, which
spread over the assembled Republicans
from the entrance to the last seat in the
gallery with the rapidity of a prairie fire.
Senator Perkins, the chairman, attempt
ed to speak, but three times ins voice was
drowned by the enthusiasm of the crowd.
Crcsar never had a more noble or enthu
siastic entrance into Rome, and the heart
of Antony, even in the presence of Egypt's
Queen, was not thrilled more. Around and
thrice around the McKinley legions
marched. Nearly every mother's son of
patriotism, prosperity and protection had
a flag which he waved, and wherever he
uplifted his eyes he saw a sky of revolving
flags in red, white and blue. The stars and
stripes, protection, patriotism and enthu
siasm were the keys that touched the
magnificent assemblage of 7000 people into
a shout for McKinley in one harmonious
and reverberating chord.
On the left of the hall sat the Woman's
Republican Club. On the right were hon
ored guests. In the center, on an elevated
platform, were the chairman, Senator Per
kins, and many vice-presidents. Opposite
was a brass band which wasted no min
utes in discoursing "America, "Yankee
Doodle" and "Marching Through
Georgia." With eacli tone of these fa
miliar ar.d patriotic airs the vast audience
arose and cheered en masse the man of
Canton, who is no less a Napoleon of
party, politics and people than the man
who astonished the world less than he
did Italy by scaling tue Alps with his
In the parade which encircled the hall
were such illuminations as these:
"Oce God, one country, one McKinley."
"Patriotism, protection prosperity."
"Threa cheers for McKinley."
When one of the finely illuminated Mc-
Kinley banners came before the Speaker's
stand Senator Perkins proposed three
cheers for the man of Canton. They were
given with a fervor that filled the hall
to the echo.
One of the conspicuous features of the
arena march was the ATro-American
League with its 350 enthusiastic faces
beaming with McKinleyism. The officers
were up in front under their illuminated
banners, and a prouder or a more stately
step wr.s not noticed in the delegation.
An illuminated banner which brought
out the laughter &f ridicule from tlie crowd
was: "Orover, Dear Boy, How Is the Fish
ing?" Even the stately dignitaries on the
As a tribute to I. M. Scott one of the
banners in the parade which circled before
the speakers' stand, with an interrogation
point after it, was. "What's the matter

"Nothing," and it reverberated to the
After a brief half hour of cheers, march
ing and shouts for the ticket, the crowded
pavilion settled down to listen to the
speeches. Conspicuous among the
paraders for their numbers, banners ana
enthusiasm were the Phoenix and the
Howard Republican clubs. With these
were County Clerk Curry and his assistant,
Harry Piper, who did so much toward or
ganizing the ratification.
Previous to the beginning of the speech
making a g!ee club sang "America" and
other patriotic songs.

ing who occupied seats on the speakers'
platform and the two sections of chairs
that flanked the platform on the cast and

MRS. CRAVEN IN
A DRAMATIC ROLE.
Served With a Subpena in
the Palace Hotel
The Document Thrown to the Ground
acd the Server Threatened
Events, portentous and dramatic, char
acterized the developments in the matter
already famous, though but of two days'
erowth, as the case of the Craven deeds.
Portentous in that they are the pre
liminary steps to bringing to an issue one
of the most important phases of the great
Fair will controversy; dramatic by reason
of the exciting incident that was enacted
in the corridor of the Palace Hotel when
an attempt was made to serve a subpena
on Mrs. Craven, ordering among other
things that she produce in Judge Slack's
court on Monday evening the two deeds
that were placed on record Friday.
Of all the attorneys connected with the
Fair will case only Reuben H. Lioyd,
representing the interests of Mrs. Oelrichs
and Miss Virginia Fair, and Charles J.
Heggerty of Knight <k, Heggerty, repre
senting Charles Fair, were in town yester
day. There was a consultation between
the two attorneys, and then, as a matter of
protection to all interested under the wills
now under adjudication, it was determined
to take prompt measures to test the
validity of the Craven deeds, whereby
11.250,000 worth of real property of the
Fair estat a purported to have been con
veyed to Mrs. Nettie Craven by Senator
James G. .fair about three months before
Mr. Lloyd was busy on the Baldwin-
Ashley case, so Mr. Heggerty proceeded
alone to Judge Slack's courtroom and
moved the court to issue forthwith an
order commanding Mrs. Craven to pro
duce the two deed.i and all other docu
ments, papers, books, written wholly or in
part by the deceased millionaire.
This the court did at noon, and about
three hours later the following document
was served, so it is claimed by Mr, Heg
gerty, on Mrs. Craven :

According to Mrs. Craven the serving of
this paper in a public place like the cor
ridor of the Palare Hotel was unneces
sary, as she states that ■she was not then v
had not been and is not now endeavoring
to avoid service of papers or any person or
persons. This is Mrs. Craven's version of
"I had entered the Market-street en
trance of the Palace Hotel and had
stopped at the news-stand, a few feet in
side the corridor, when a man without any
preliminary warning jammed a paper
under my arm, between my coat and my
waist, the former being open. I did not
know what he was after, and his actions
were so ungentlemanly, not to say rough,
that I did not know but my life was be ng
threatened. The paper was rolled up and
there was nothing abont it to indicate to
me that it was a legal document.
"1 of course threw the paper on the floor
in my excitement. After he had shoved
the paper at me he exclaimed: 'You are
Mrs. Craven. I know yon.'
"I said: 'lam not Mrs. Craven,' under
the impulse of the moment, as I feared ha
was meditating harm against me. I have
had some queer experiences of late, and
they have tended to make me nervous and
fearsome of strangers."
Mrs. Craveu, when asked what she pro
posed to do in regard to answering the
subpena, said :
"I have not seen any subpena and do
not know that I have "been served with
one. Ido not know what all the trouble
is about and I do not propose to rind oui,
either. Let them come here and serve me
properly. lam not running away."
"Have you any objection to giving a
history of'tbose deeds so far as you know
it?" was asked.
"That is something my attorneys have
instructed me not to talk about," replied
"Have you ever collected or attempted
to collect the rents from the tenants of the
properties mentioned in the two deeds?"
"That i.s a matter my attorneys, Short
ridge & Delmas, have said I was to say
nothing about. All the rent of those prop
erties for nearly twenty-one months ta
now due me, which I can collect and
which I will. This is no surprise to the
Fair attorneys. They have known of this
from the very beginning of the Fair caso.
"I want to'say this further: The reason
that the deeds were not left at the Record
er's office was not that I was afraid of the
genuineness of them, but 1 did not want

She concluded by saying: "I don't
know ■where they are at tne present time,
and I don't want to know. I have no
papers of any Kind connected with the
Fair case now in my possession.
"Shall you appear in court, as ordered in
the subpena?" was then asked.
"I shall act according to the instruc

without being subpenaed."
Another version of the service of th«
subpena is given by the gentleman who
performed that task. He alleges that h»

when she attempted to walk away. He

identity, threw the subpena on the floor,
and that then Miss Craven threatened to
call the police and have him arrested.

stand, who says he will not surrender it to

when informed of this, says she did not
lose it and had no longing for its possession.
Uamaged Oft the Tidal Wave.

West Coast, brings word that the tidal wave
which was reported last week did consid
erable damage all along the West Coast.
No lives were lost.
HE VOUCHED FOR IT.
Mr. Jaccard Jtands by Mis Letter
Published in the Sunday Papers.
When one reads in the papers from day
to day of the wonderful cures that are
claimed to have been made by some one
of the many advertised remedies it arouses
a feeling of incredulity, for we know that
if these many "cure-ails" would do one
tenth of what is claimed for them they
would in time throw the regular practi
tioner out of a job — then there would be
; no more use for him.
It is amusing sometimes to read of some
| respectable, and often very well-known
I man, who permits his name, and may bo
I his portrait, to be used to boom a remedy
■ which is said to have cured him of a life
; long disease. The other day there was
! printed in the San Francisco morning
! papers a double-column advertisement
] with a picture of a weil-known jeweler of
1 San Leandro, and a letter purporting to
be from the said jeweler describing his
wonderful cure of a weakness and vari
cocele of twenty-six years' standing by an

porter took the matter in hand and hunted
up the jeweler for the purpose of seeing
what there was in it.
The gentleman, whose name is Jaccard,
I was found in his store at San Leandro,
i and when approached on the subject of
' his cure by the electric belt game out
i lrom behind the counter and stood be
| fore his questioner in an attitude which
showed a remarkable development of
j manly physique. He looked like a Hercu
! les*, and would be the last man iii a thou
i sand to be picked out as a fit subject for an
I electric treatment. He was right 'to the
point when the object of his visitor's
presence was made known. His remarks
! left no doubt in the reporter's mind as
to tne value of electricity as a curative
"You see me now," said Mr. Jaccard;
"do 1 look like a sick man? I tell you I
am different from what I was two years
.as:o. i did use the Dr. Sanden Electric
ißelt, and believe that it has saved me
! from a lot of misery. For twenty-six
; years I was bothered with one of the worst
i forms of varicocele. I was weak. It was
simply draining my life from me. I tried
lots of treatments. The quacks grew rich
lon rue, but did not help me. I got this
Sanden Belt in 1394, ana used it for seven
months. At first 1 did not notice much
good from it, but after I had used it two
months the varicocele seemed to vanish
like magic, and I was born again— a new
man. I nave been growing stronger every
day since, and you will find very few men
at 50 who are more powerful. Yes, there
other treatment", but I believe in getting
the best when I am doctoring myself, and
I know Dr. Ssmden's Electric Belt is the
greatest invention for sick people."
Mr. Jaccard said a great deal more in
favor of Dr. Sanden'n Belt, and men
tioned the names of several other San
Leandro oltizens who bad enjoyed bene
fits from its use. He left no doubt in the
mind of the visitor that the value of this
remedy is too lightly appreciated by peo
ple who need it. When questioned as to
whether Dr. Sanden's Belt did as much as
was claimed for it he said: "Yes. sir, and
ten times more than they claim. You have
only to try it to feel yourself a new man in
mind and body."
. Mr. Jaccard is 50 years of age, weighs
210 pounds and measures 5 feet 9 inches.
j His ch3st measurement is 49 and his waist
38 inches.— Copied from the Bulletin of
