him whose name is on all our lips, and to
whom all our hearts go out. Bless him in
the future, as thou hast in the past, with
wisdom and strength, that he may dis
charge aright all the momentous duties
which thou hast laid upon him."
Dr. Edmunds' text was the words in the
tenth and eleventh verses of the first
chapter of the second general epistle 6i
Peter: "Wherefore ye rather, brethren,
give diligence to make your calling and
election sure; for if ye do these things ye
shall never fall; for so an entrance shall
be ministered unto you abundantly into
the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and
Savior. Jesus Christ.' 1
Tneopen;ng words of the sermon were
his O&ly direct utterances upon the suh
ject prominent, if not uppermost, in the
minds of his hearers: "We have j^st
passeJ through a week whose historic sig
nificance none are disposed to underesti
mate. The hi.- best attainment of free
government was illustrated and the sacred
privileges of American citizenship exer
cised in the choice of men and measures
representing a vast number of our fellow
citizens. Momentous in its results though
that great gathering was it is to-day in
this place only suggestive of a still more
important event in which ail are indefi
nitely interested.' 1
The tirst condition of a sure ejection, he
said, was that a man must announce hia
candi iacy. To succeed he mast command
a stronger constituency than his secret in
clinations. A second requirement, "to
have a platform, then stand on it. To
be Dassive, knowing nothing, believing
nothing, may be freedom to an oyster, but
not to a man. He will think, draw con
clusions, and these wiil crystallise into be
l:e;s coven, ir;g his life. What can more
certainly rt-iegate to the rear, win the
contempt of all men and overw elm witn
just deieat a party or its advocates than
Laving no ; iaiform on which to rest, rep
rt-e:;ting no principle, the champion of
:ay cause? '
A third element, largely determinative
of the victory for which the candidate
strives, was the courage with which he
made the struggle. 'Whatever else may
be deprecated in the methods of modern
:ai contests," said the preacher, "this
one thing can but command the admira
tion of ail — the subiime confidence with
which each party organization advocates
Avy. No matter how unfavorable
the conditions there is no shrinking, no
iaitenng , no uncertain sound in the trum
pet calls to united and decisive action."

SHOUP IS LOYAL.
He Will Reman With His Party to
Labor for Sliver In Its
CHICAGO, 111., June 21. — Senator
George F. Shoup of Idaho will not join
the poaticai orphans of the silver States
who followed Senator Teller out of the St.
Louio Convention. The senior Senator
from Idaho is in the city and states em
phatically that he believes it is more to
the interests of his constituency for him
to remain in the Republican party and
fight under the old standard than to seek
reaef from a demoralized Democracy or a
■■"iVLile I do not wish to criticize my
colleague, Senator Dubois," said the vet
eran Rocky Mountain statesman, "I think
he possibly erred in seeking relief in a
bolt from the St. Louis Convention. In
doing so he exercised his own privilege.
In refusing to concur in that plan of
remedy I exercise mine.
"It remains for the people of Idaho to
decide which is the panacea for the ills of
the silver question. I am loyal at all
times to the iree and unlimited coinage oi
the white metal at a ratio of 16 to 1, and
will always work for the interests of my
constituency, but I believe tbe best plan
for the people to pursue is to elect free
silver men to Congrees from the old-estab
lished parties, until a working majority
insures the passage of a free-coinage bill
with sufficient votes to pass it over a
Presidential veto if necessary. As a Re
publican Senator I would have more influ
ence with a Republican Senate than one
who had read himself out of the party.
"It remain* to be seen whether the silver
men can control the next Congress, and.
if so, whether the next President would
veto a free-coinage bill.
"I do not wish to criticize Senator Teller
for his action. I have known him for
years, and known him to be a man who
has a great depth of sincerity. His State
is behind him unanimously. If the peo
ple of Idaho decide that I am wrong in
expecting future relief by sticking to the
old party then I will resign as National
Committeeman and abide by their wishes."
OUTLOOK IN WYOMING.
Senator Warren Predicts a Victory
for McKlnley and Hobart In
CHICAGO, 111., June 21. —Senator Fran
cis EL Warren of Cheyenne. Wyo., is at
the Auditorium, having just arrived from
Ft. Louis. Regarding the situation in
Wyoming he said:
"Wyoming is a Republican State, and
in my judgment we will carry it this fall
for the Republican National ticket, al
though the contest will be fiercely fought,
especially in case Henry M. Teller is in
dorsed by the Chicago convention. The
right will be harder and the margin
smaller than if there had been a more lib
eral construction of bimetallism and a less
harsh sentiment on the part of those who
believed in gold monometallism at the
Bt. Ixmis convention.
"The people of my State believe that the
Republican party has always been a party
of bimetallism, and that notwithstanding
the extreme view of tbe qjestion now
taken by the Eastern element of the party
it will yet be forced to leave the field of
monometallism. The Republican wave
toward English principles of finance will
soon recede, just as the Democratic wave
toward free trade has receded."
Senator Warren is personally strouely
in favor of the election of McKinley and
Hobart, and will do his utmost to carry
his State for the ticket.
PERRY BELMONT'S VIEWS.
He Says Much Depends Upon
Future Interpretation of the
PARIS, France, June 21. — In the course
of an interview to-day with a reporter of
the United Press, Hon. Perry Belmont
made the following remarks about the
gold plank adopted by the St. Louis Re
"If the Republican platform adopted at
St. Louis shall be interpreted by Mr. Mc-
Kinley and the Republican party as a
mandate to obey the coinage law of 1873
and coin no more silver dollars until in
ternational free bimetallic coinage on a
fixed ratio may come, and if it is intended
to resolutely enforce the mandate by
diplomacy and legislation and accomplish
international bimetallism, the work done
will be beneficial; but the contrary will
happen if the platform shall be interpreted
as permitting or encouraging the renewal
of treasury s:!ver-r>urchasing and the coin
ape on Government account of more 50
--cent silver dollars on the theory of the re
pudiated i-htrman law of 1390.
"Even a country so rich in natural re
sources as ours, so removed from European
war disturbances, so powerful in industry
and tne vigor of its seventy millions of
people, cannot safely endure such con
"But the Republican Convention ad
journed without even suggesting an ade
quate remedy. To proclaim the main
tenance of the gold standard, to demand
a McKinley tariff, is no remedy, especially
when no methods are specified whereby
the needed gold can be secured in some
other way than by renewed bond selling.
The plea of tte Sherman law of 1890 was
also the maintenance oi the gold standard.
Nevertheless, an! despite Republican eva
sion, you may depend upon it that, cost
what it may, the people of our country
will insist that all antecedent indebted
ness-National, State and municipal —
shall be paid if demanded in the gold dol
lars specified or implied in the contracts.
No railway or other corporation will by
any law be released from sucu obligation."
NO CAUSE FOR THE BOLT.
Foraker Says the St. Louis Conve
tion but Reiterated Old-Tfme
CINCINNATI, Ohio, June 21.— The Mc-
Kinley and Hobart ratirication meeting at
Muac HaJl last night was under the aus
pices of the Stamina Club. In speaking
of the piatform adopted at St. Louis, Sen
ator Foraker had this to say in regard to
the financial plank:
It bas constantly and repeatedly been de
clared by both parties that bimetallism was
desirable in preference to gold or silver mono
metallism. Both oi the parties have agreed
that we could maintain the parity of the two
metals and bring about bimetallism again by
an international agreement. Some peopie
have insisted in the meamrbile that if wecouid
not do it that way we couid do it alone with
out regard to wnat other nations might see
fit to do. The Republican party has con
stantly, consistently and persistently stood up
against that idea.
Four years ego, when we held the conven
tion at Minneapolis, it was my fortune to
be the chairman ot the committee on reso
lutions, as I was at the St. Louis convention,
aud it was my fortune to be associated on that
committee with Senator Teller. He and his
associates from the silver Ptates came to that
convention and came be-fore that committee
asking us to insert a plank pledging the Re
publican party to the free coinage of silver.
We refused to do it. We declared that we
were in favor of international bimetallism,
but thai until that was brought about it ivouM
be cur policy to maintuin silver at a parity
with gold Dy issuing no more of it ttittn could
be maintained at a parity with gold.
They accepted the result and remained in
the Republican party. They did noifeel called
upon to go out of the party tnen; their con
sciences did not seem to trouble them so much
then as now. When the last session of Con
gress commenced, as a result of the Demo
cratic free-trade experiment, the Government
was iound to have deficient revenues- not
enoueh revenues to meet its current expenses.
A bill was prepared in the Hous« and passed
that body without partisan division, almost,
providing for an increase of revenue. That
bill was known as the Dingley bill. It went
to the Senate. The National credit, the Na
tional honor, the National life was at stake.
These gentlemen said the bill was unobjec
tionable, but they refused to vote for it (that
is, six of these gentlemen from silver States
did) unless the great majority of those who
did not agree with them would sacrifice their
convictions and vote for the free, unlimited
and unrestricted coinage of kilver. The great
majority in tbe Senate would not be coerced
by that minority.
That action upon the part of these people
directed the attention to that subject as it had
not been directed before, and therefore when
we met at St. Louis conditions were ripe, not
for a different stand to be taken by the Repub
licans, but for more explicit declarations of
our principles than we had heretofore made,
and inasmuch as they had thrown down the
cage of battle by demanding free silver and
seeking to coerce us to accept, we concluded
it was a good time to meet them naif way,
join issues and let the battle come.
To conclude with a word, the point I was
seeding to make was this: That when Senator
Teller and his associates bolted the party at
the St. Louis convention they had no cause for
it whatever that did not exist four years before
at the Minneapolis convention, and when the
Republican party made the declaration it did
make at St. Louis it did not change its position
one particle, but simply made it absolutely
certain in order that there could be a settle
ment of that question— that the fr^e and inde
pendent and unlimited coinage of silver is a
proposition that we will not entertain. We
will not entertain it because in our judgment
It does not, as Senator Teller and his associates
claim, mean bimetallism, but simply silver
TO HIS PARTY.

Governor Flower returned from Albany
yesterday and will epend the summer in
Watertown. He believes that a united
Democracy can bring about the adoption
of a sound money plank at Chicago and
the election of a Democratic President.
He will go to the National convention as a
delegate at larire. He said last night:
"If the Democratic press of the city of
New York desires the election of a Demo
cratic President it would be a matter
easily accomplished. They reach the
Democrats of New York, New Jersey and
Connecticut. If they would pledge them
selves to exert their influence to
ward the carrying of these three
States on a platform that would provide
for maintaining the present standard of
money and all the different kiuds of issues
of it, ordered by the Government, at par
with gold, so that the delegation from New
York could go to Chicago pledging the
convention that we would carry New
York, New Jersey and Connecticut, I be
lieve that the South and the West, or
enough electoral votes from them, could be
obtained to elect a Democratic President.
"But if we go to the National convention
without some definite pledges to them
they may not listen t6 us. I believe that
the defeat of the Republican party if pos
sible. What we want is honest intentions,
and as soon as we can satisfy the European
powers of our soundness on the currency,
confidence will be res ored and the vast
wealth of Europe will seek the United
States for investment."

BERLIN, Germany. June 21.— The ex
citement which prevailed throughout the
South German States over the incident at
the banquet at the Deutsche Verein in
Moscow upon the occasion of the Czar's
coronation, when the president of the
banquet alluded to the German Princes
as members of the suite of Prince Henry
of Prussia, was subsiding rnpidly, but it
has now received a fresh impulse by the
bestowal of the Order of the Bed Ea<*le by
the Emperor upon the chairman whose
words evoked a violent protest from
Prince Ludwig of Bavaria, who resented
the president's words by indignantly de
claring that the Princes alluded to were
neither members of Prince Henry's suite
nor vassals of the German Empire.
The Bavarian press, in commenting upon
the act of the Emperor in decorating the
president of the banquet, interpret it as
a new act of provocation on the part of
Prussia, although it is a clearly customary
action toward an official receiving a rep
resentative of the Kaiser, in which capacity
Prince Henry went to Moscow.
Prince Luitpold, Regent of Bavaria, has
sought to hush up the the uproar caused
by the words of the president of the ban
quet, and the resentful speech of his son
and the heir to the Bavarian throne,
Prince Ludwig, but popular feeling bas
been too strong, as was shown in the en
thusiastic demonstration at the closing of
the session of the Bavarian Landtag in
Munich, when Prince yon Walther
thanked the royal house for watching and
jealously preserving the independence of
Bavaria and her guaranteed treaties. This
expression was received with cheers, which
were prolonged many minute*. In addi
tion to this, the patriotic associations in
all parts of South Germany are sending
congratulatory messages and addressee to
Prince Ludwig in great profusion.
The Catholic party is especially taking
the lead in the resurgence of the particu
larist agitation, and the Catholic press is
vehement in its denunciation of the per
sistent attempts to force the Prussian
regime upon the independent States of
German} 1 . The Berlin Government, In
the -meantime, is viewing the agitation in
the South German States very quietly, and
the Berlin newspapers treat the matter
lightly, as though the particularist senti
ment in the south of Germany were a
quantity not worth serious consideration.
The National Gazette characterizes the
excitement as puerile, but however lightly
the Government and press may view the
agitation it cannot be dismissed in that
fashion. The fact is that tbe present out
burst is due to a feelinj; which has long
been in the air of South Germany, wuere
the people and the princes alike have
silently resented the autocratic acts
and speeches of the Kaiser. Legislative
proposals like the wine tax which hits
all Germany hard without touching Prus
sia, the vexatious treatment of the South
German line 3by the Prussian railways,
and the dealings between the pos
tal authorities of Prussia and the
South German States have combined to
keep particularism alive. The present ag
itation, which is giving free vent to long
restrained sentiments, is liKely to do good
to tlie whole country, and after all it is a
family squabble which does not ia any
way affect the unity of the empire.
In the meantime Prince Ludwig, whose
violent words at the banquet were the sig
nal for the popular outburst of feeling*,
has found it prudent, or at least conveni
ent, to go to his hunting Beat in Hungary,
to remain until the excitement is allayed.
It is said by those who are in a position to
know that his departure for Hungary was
taken with a view of avoiding the rousing
ovations which the people of Munich and
other places were preparing to give him.
The passage of the Government's bourse
bill, prlhibitin* futures and certain other
transactions on the German bourses, has
already resulted in eight Berlin bankers
dealing in stocks opening branch estab
lishments in Copt Hall in London and
also in Brussels and Antwerp, with a view
of continuing their dealings in time trans
actions, which are forbidden here. The
statement made by the Rhenish West
phalian Gazette, that the German Govern
ment, acting upon a motion made in the
Reichstag by Count yon Kanitz, had made
overtures to France with a view of having
that Government join Germany in the
suppression of time dealings in grain, is
believed to be baseless. Just now it would
be impossible for France to entertain such
The nomination of Mr. McKintey for
the Presidency of the United States by the
Republican convention is hailed here with
satisfaction, so far as the security of a gold
currency is concerned, but there are fears
that his election would mean the enact
ment of a prohibitive tariff by the Ameri
can Congress. Several Berlin exporters
who have recently visited the United
States for the purpose of studying the situa
tion, with a view of devising means to give
impetus to German trade, have returned
here with the conviction that no improve
ment can be expected within a measurable
time. However, it is only German drugs,
colors and chemicals that are stationary.

Herr Lutaenen, who was recently elected
to the Reichstag by the Socialists of Dort
mund, has become involved in a Jibel suit
between the Dortmund Anzeiger and the
Arbeiter-Zeitung, a Socialist newspaper.
The Auzeiger published an article alleging
that Lutgenen had been alone in a private
room of a restaurant owned by a man
named Osthues, a Socialist friend of Lut
genen, with Frau Osthues, and that they
were playing chess for kisses. The An
zeiger asserted that the servants in the
restaurant bored holes In the door of the
private room, through which thej observed
the alleged pame of kisses. Tbe Arbeiter-
Zeitunc took up the cudgels in behalf ol
Lutgenen and called the editor of the
Anzeiger all sorts of names, whereupon
tbe latter brought an action for libel
against the ArDeiter-Zeitung, which re
sulted in a judgment auainst the Socialist
paper, which was lined 50 marks. A further
result of fche trial is that Lutgenen has
been compromised, and whatever useful
ness he may have possessed as a representa
tive legislator has been srreatly impaired.
The Vorwaerts, the leading Socialist
paper, asserts that a number of Silesian
landowners are entering into a combina
tion with the object of obtaining coolies
from China to replace the native German
laborers and the Russians and Poles now
employed in farm and field work. Ac
cording to the Vorwaerts, a Berlin agent

DEATH IN THE WATER.
Three Tounrj Persons Drotrncd by the

ZANESVILLE, Ohio, June 21.— A sad
drownine accident occurred this afternoon
on the Muskingum ttiver, four miles be

Emma Collins, aged 21; A. O. Williams,
aged 21, and Luln Evans, aged 16, were
out in a skiff in the middle of the river,
when the boat began to fill with water.
Young Williams sprang into the water,
and, with his Hands on the boat, was
swimming for shore. When within thirty
feet of the shore the three occupants be
came panic stricken and jumped into the
water. In their struggle the two young
ladies seized Harvey and pulled him down
with them, the three sinking immediately.
Young Williams was picked up by another
skiff in an exhausted condition. Up to a

bodies had be^n recovered, that of Miss

Experiments With Corpses as Targets
Show the Terrific Effects of
FORT RILEY, Kans.. June 21.— An of- |
ficial test of the new military rifle, the j
Krag-Jorgensen, was made on dead bodies j
at this post yesterday under the direction i
of Dr. J. D. Griffith of Kansas City, a mem- )
ber of the United States Association of
Military Surgeons, and chairman of the
National committee on testine new puns,
assisted by a dozen attending surgeons
The object of the te?t was to find out the
relative effects of the use oi the Krat;- I
Jorgensen gun from a humanitarian point j
of view, as compared with other army
rifles. The test has demonstrated to the
mind- of tooae who participated that the
Krag-Jorgensen gun cannot be called a
humane gun. At distances up to 1000
yards the explnsive quality of the Krag-
Jorgensen bullets, and consequently the
cruelty of its use, is terrific.
The explosive quality is most marke-i in
the soft tissues and cavities, the brain and
the lung tissues being terribly torn and
the heart burst. When tbe vicera are
grazed by a bullet they are much muti
lated. Blood vessels are cut, not torn,
hence the death rate on the field will be
very great — four killed to one wounded,
probably. Tendons are the only tissues in
the body which seem to he turned aside
by the ball.
A test of shrat)neJ shot used by the j
artillery followed the Krag-Jorgensen test, i
To do effective work the shell should burst
thirty or forty yards in front of the object
aimed at. Some very effective wounds
were obtained, and the opinion strength
ened that the shrapnel gun is to be the
man-kilier of the future.

Two Murders Avenged by the Death
of the Notorious Bandit
NORTH BRANCH, Bfnor., June 21.—
The hand of justice meted with exceeding
swiftness la the case of the desperadoes
who murdered Jacob Hay and Andrew
Paul and attempted t'i kill Dr. Burnside
Foster at Wyoming, Minn., at 1 o'clork
Saturday morning. "Bob" Wilson, the
leader of the gang, was killed shortly after
1 o'clock this morning, a few miles from
here, and ti.e other two— James Cunning
ham and, George Kelly— were captured
after making a desperate resistance. Cun
ningham was badly wounded.
The men are desperadoes who have been
committing robberies along the St. Paul
and Duluth road for the past month.
After robbing Dr. Foster of $75 and shoot
ing Paul and Hay dead the bandits moved
northward along the railroad to this point.
On Saturday night they entered the home
of ex-Mayor Frank Smith, taking a watch,
a small sum of money, some clothing and
a lot of provisions. They then moved on
in the direction of Duluth.
A half mile from here they were met by
a lot of railroad men, who had heard ol
the Wyoming killing. Tbe railroaders
ordered them to halt, but they answered
only with a couple of shots from a re
volver. Theu they dropped part of their
booty and ran.
The railroad men ran into North Branch,
notified the station agent and sroused the
town. Word was sent out all along the
line that the desperadoes had been located,
and a posse of seventeen men was made
up here and at once went in hot pursuit.
At 1 o'clock thia morning the three
bandits were located in a tamarack swamp.
The posse gradually drew in on the men
in a circle. When about thirty yards away
the desperadoes opened fire from a hastily
improvised breastwork of logs. The guns
of the posse opened and bullets flew thick
and fast. Then there was a lull, during
which the posse made no advance.
Finally one of the men behind the logs
slowly poked up his head, when quick as
a flash a rifle shot rang out and the fellow
fell back behind the breastwork, shot
through the head. He died instantly.
His companions ran up the white flag and
soon afterward were taken in tow by the

SOME VERY RICH ORE,
A Cali f ornia Production Pre
sented to the Golden Gate
Yesterday was the longest day in the
year, and many people concluded to make
a day of it by going out of town. Great
crowds went by train to San Jose and to
the Santa Cruz Mountains, while still
greater crowds went to points on eastern
and northern sides of the bay, conse
quently visitors to the park and ocean
beach were not numerically as large as
they have been in the past.
Among the many contributions to the
park museum during the past week is one
that will attract considerable attention.
It is a piece of iron ore sent by C. L.
Hubbs of Daggett, San Bernardino. It is
about 14 inches long, and 6xß inches wide,
and its weight is a little more than seventy
pounds. Mr. Wilcomb' the curator of trie
museum, who is a mineralogist, states
that it is a wonderfully rich specimen^
containing at least W) per cent of iron. In
a letter accompapying the donation Mr.
"This ia from a group of seven iron
claims covering parallel veins or leases
from 100 to 350 feet in width each. The
ore from each is as solid as the specimen. 1 '
Curator Wilcomb has also received from
M. Bravt rman of Tulare a discovery that
is new in this State. It is a piece of rr.ilK
white quartz, which the curator declares
is different from any quartz of ihat de
scription ever before exhibited. He pro
poses to have a piece of it cut off and
polished and will then exhibit the rough
and the finished side by side. He has
also come into possession of a piece of
rock from Tulare County wnich has been
polished. It is of various colors, which
blend and present the appearance of a
small slab o; opaL
At the time me World's Fair at Chicago
was opened Superintendent McLaren of
the park was requested to send on some
of the hardy outdoor shrubs for the pur
pose of decorating the upper gallery of
tbe California building. The collection he
sent on attracted a great deal of attention
and was different Irom any displayed in
the other State buildings.
The directors of the fair were so pleased
with the San Francisco collection that at
the close of the exposition they bad it !
transferred to one of the parks. Last I
week the Golden Gate Park Commission
ers as a token of appreciation of tnis col
lection received from the commissioners a
handsome bronze medal bearing on < ne
sidee a figure representing the landing
of Columbus and on the obverse "World's
Columbian Exposition in commemoration
of the four hundredth anniversary of
the landing of Columbus, MDCCCXCII—
MDCCCXCIII, to Goideu Gate Park."
Among the many bicycle riders seen on
the park road is a one-armed boy named
Paul McCarthy. He handles his wheel
with all the facility of one possessed of
two hands. As a pedalist he is in it with
the most speedy, and some of the mas
ters of the art of cycling have declared
that he will in a short time take rank with
the best known scorchers, il he does not
Superintendent McLaren stated yester
day that there was not much work on
hand, as th£ funds would not permit of
any, but that which was absolutely neces
sary was being done. Tlie work on the
bicycle track has been continued aud will
be until it is finished. What may be done
in the future is uncertain, as there is no
certainty as to what the appropriation will
be. The Auditor has cut down the estimate
for the park, making it $50,000 less than it
was for the preceding fiscal year.
The two steps upon which is to rest the
granite pedestal of General Grant is all
that has been put in position since the
removal of the convict-dressed stone whicn
was placed some time ago. It was
announced that if the obnoxious stone was
removed it would be immediately replaced
by another monument. Several weeks
have passed since the convict-dressed stone
was quietly carted away, aud there is noth
ing to replace it but the two steps, wnich
have been in position about two weeks.
J. L. BardweU of this City has donated
to the museum a curious cane made from
the backbone of a shark; James Robbins
of this City ha? contributed a $1000 Con
federate bond and some Confederate notes.
M. Braverman of Tulare, has tent in a
curiously carved wooden bowl used by In
dians of the northwestern portion of the
Queen Charlotte Islands.
One of the large seals turned up its fins
last Saturday night and was cast upon the
beach near the Olympic pier yesterday,
where it was reviewed by those "who went
to Sutrovillt by the sea.
Tue attractions in ttie baths were many
and they amused the crowds who were
under the large dome. Dana Thompson
essayed the feat of swimming under the
water from one end of the big tank to the
other, having accomplished the feat the
day before, but he made a mistake in
direction and was forced to come up after
being beneath the surface a iittie over
four minutes and having swum three
quarterß the distance. The race between
lively ducks and expert swimmers was
rare sport. The ducks swum rapidly and
when the swimmers attempted to catch
them the wily ducks went under, and like
Thompson, swam far away out of sight.
A number of young men have for several
days past been swimming in the surf be
tween t' c baths and the Seal Rocks with
a view of swimming around the rocks at
some future time — in about two weeks, bo
says Colonel Robinson, the niauaeer of
Miss Essie Viola, having recovered from
the effects of bruises received by being
dashed against the third-story window of
a house at the Mission a week ago last
Saturday while coming down with her
parachute, took another flight from the
Haight-street grounds yesterday after
noon. The ascent was a pretty one, and
when the balloonist cut loose, the para
chute opened gracefully, but before she
reached the ground the cloth that sup
ported her collapsed, and she came down
with a run. Fortunately she came down
on soft ground near the German Hospital
and escaped injury.

the greatest difficulty restrained from follow
