in the Center of the
Town.

Boughs.
GAYETY AND DISCIPLINE
The Guardsmen Receive Instructions
by Day and Make Merry at
Eventide.
Camp City Guard, Company 8., )
Fiest Regiment Infantry, >7. G. C. V
Los Gatos, Cal., August 16.)
Right in the center ot Los Gatos the
camp is located. It is only a hundred
yards from the bridge, on Alain street,
which spans Los Gatos Creek. The trees
in the creek bottom are so wide-spreadinE
as to almost shut the camp out from view,
until suddenly the reader finds himself
almost in the midst of it, unless he hap
pens to run up against a sentinel. But
the Company B sentinel in the daytime is
not the terror to the visitor that he be
comes to the prowler or the belated guards
man at night, whereat the large number
of people who looked upon the camp to
day smiled and looted glad.
A more picturesque or advantageous
spot for an encampment couJd not have
been found in a wide stretch of coun
try. It has all the charms of a sylvan
retreat, with ample shade, bright and
frequent spots of sunshine, quiet nooks
offering seclusion when the stars are out
and "the moonlight is floating overall."
Within a stone's throw of the flagstaff are
all the advantages of a live little city,
famous for its beauty. High above the
camp rise the green and cultivated slopes
of the £anta Cruz mountains, with their
brown heads in the sky, and ten feet be
low the mess-tables ripples tbe Lob Gatos
Creek, on it way to the sea. Whoever
chose this spot had his eye out for the
beauties of nature on the one hand and
the advantages of civilization on the other.
This was the first day of camp. Tbe
number of visitors was not so large as it
will be to-morrow. About 150 people, in
cluding many ladies, came up on the
trains to-day and are stopping at the
hotels. On entering camp the first thing
tne visitor sees is "old glory" flying in the
breeze at the top of the tali flagstaff and a
brass howitzer, highly polished and glit
tering in the sun. The latter gives the
visitor an impression of business. Can
non nearly aiways project an idea of seri
ous business into ihe mind of the be
holder. When the caller wanders farther
and sees stacks of guns and glittering
bayonets he concludes that the gallant
"boys of the City Guard are not here for
play altogether. And Captain George
Filmer says they are not.
''This is a camp of instruction," he said
to-day. "If you are here at company drill
in the morning you will think so."
There are over 100 men in camp and
about fifty more are expected during the
week. It was impossible for all the mem
bers of the company to get away from
business ior the eight days that the camp
will continue, so those who are now ab
sent will come up for two or three days
later in the week.
The tents number ten. They are pret
liiy pitched facing each other, with a
broad shady avenue running between,
and nearly all have canopies of several
colors over their entrances. The mess j
table is very picturesquely located, and
three times a day it has added charms
that the able-bodied soldier finds it im
possible to resist.
There will be a new countersign each
night. The officers insist that a bottle
will not l ass muster as a subsritute, and
nothinir but the countersign goes. So the
guardhouse is yawning wide open for the
first man who tries to seduce a picket from
the path of his duiy with a flask. It is
not to be supposed that the toys of Com
pany B are loaded with flasks for this or
any other purpose, but it was deemed
wise to have an understanding about the
matter.
Captain George Filmer is m command,
and other officers of Company B on the
ground are: First Lieutenant B. B. Stur
riivant, Second Lieutenant A. F. Ramm i
and First Sergeant W. X. Kelly. Among i
other well-known National Guardsmen !
in camp are Major H. B. Hosmer of Gen
eral Warfieid's staff and Captain A. H.
Williams, late of Colonel Sullivan's staff. I
The company surgeons here are Dr. T. A.
McCuiloch, Dr. W. H. o'Malley and Dr. A.
D. McLean. Major-General James will be
here next Saturday with his staff and Gen
eral Warfieid and staff will be here next
i-riday.
The commissary department of camp
•City Guard" is in charge of Quartei
master-sergeant A. H. Clifford, and the field
music is in charge of Sergeant H. Sieberst
(fifes) and Val Mills (drums). The com
pany bugler is Al Aphthorpe, and he will
make the rabbits high above on the hills
lift up th«ir ears and listen.
A prize for the best-decorated and best
kept tent has been offered by Charles
Steiger, an honorary member of the com
pany. It is not known yet what the prize
is, but ot course it is worth having, and
there is quite a rivalry "on the tented
field" to win it.
To-morrow night the members of the
company will give a reception to the peo
ple of lion Gatos. Tnere are signs that it
is going to be a "swell" and a very largely
attended affair. The grounds will be
illuminated. The Los Gatos band of six
teen pieces has been engaged. The name
that the location of tne camp is locally
known oy here is Shore's picnic grounds,
and there is a broad pavilion, which is
]ust ibe thing for dancing. A ball in the
pavilion will be one of the features of the
reception. The gallant, guardsmen and
the fair visitors from San Francisco ana
the lovely maidens of Los Gatos may not
dance "till the stars pale" in the eastern
sky, but doubtless the time for sounding
taps will be forgotten for a gratifying
length of time. Other social features will j
adorn each evening in camp. There will
be a drama before the weeic is out.
The members of Comr>any B are deter
mined to improve themselves as soldiers
in every way while in camp, but after they
have arisen* with the sun and worked hard
in the drill they will seek a recreation that
will doubtless be well-earned.
To-night it was a typical camp scene.
An arc light was swung over the main
avenue and a large bonfire built a little to
one tside of the camp. The soldiers and
a large number of Los Gatos young ladies
gathered around tbe fire. The camp
siring band, composed of two guitars, two
zithers and a violin, made the evening
beautiful with music. The guardsmen
sang sones, and before taps sounded it was
a case of everybody, including the young
ladies, singine in the red glare under the
trees.
For once "Tenting To-Night" wan not
Bung, but everybody expected some one to
start at any moment. They sang: "Just
Tell Them That You Saw Me," "She May
Have Seen Better Days," "Ma Angeline,
"Better Than Gold," and kindred songs.
It was the first Sunday night in camp,
and a most pleasant and suitable one.
There is a box of carrier pigeons in
camp. They belong to John Filmer of
422 Jersey street, San Francisco, a brother
of Captain Filmer.
Among the pigeons are Dick and Mary,
two famous birds, which have a record of
flying the twenty-eipht miles from Red
wood City to their loft in San Francisco in
twenty-live minutes. Dick and Mary will
carry messages to The Call before the en
campment is over. At least two birds will
be released each day, with messages to
friends and to Mr. Filmer in the City.
T'.e idea of their use by Captain Filmer is
to establish the practicability of utilizing
homing pigeons as a means of communi
cation between afmy posts in time of war,
when telegraph wires may be down and
other communication cut off.
The relatives and friends of members of
the company who are stopping at the ho
tels are: Mrs. Captain Filmer and family,
Miss Belle Sturtevant, Mrs. W. N. Kelly,
Mrs. T. J. Kelly, Miss Sadie McDermott,
Miss Pailie Langden, Mrs. E. B. Peppm,
Mrs. Dr. Sieberst, Mrs. Emily Sieberst,
Mrs. Henry Osthoff and family, Miss
Mills, W. F. Burke, Arthur Cills and
Max Olaussenius.
The complete list of members of Com
pany B in camp at this time is as follows:
Captain George Filmer, First Lieutenant
B. B. Sturtevant. Second Lieutenant A. 1.

LOS ANGELES CRUSADE.
Christian Temperance Women
Declare War on the
Bloomer.
They Insist That the Garment Is
Immodest, Unwomanly and
Demoralizing.
Lob Angeles Office of The Call, )
328 South Broadway. V
Los Angeles, Cal., Aug. 16. )
The Los Angeles County Woman's Chris
tian Temperance Union has declared war
on the bloomer. At its regular meeting
in Temperance Hair yesterd ay the follow
ing resolution was unanimously adopted:
While we believe in the emancipation of
women from any and all customs which de
prive her of her freedom, either physically or
mentally, yet we are not unmindful that to be
most perfect Is to be most womanly. We most
heartily indorse the bicycle when moderately
and modestly used and believe it Is a blessing
to women in general and working women in
particular, but we regret exceedingly that
many young women abuse the liberty which
this modern invention affords and thereby call
-forth criticisms broad enough and indiscimi
nate enough to wound the heart of every true
woman.
We regard some of the bicycle costumes to
be seen on our streets as unwomanly, inde
cent and demoralizing in their effect There
fore, as a part of the great organization of
Christian womanhood and motherhood, we,
the Central Woman's Christian Temperance
Union of Los Angeles, raise our voice and
enter our protest against this, or any custom,
the tendency of whi h is to debase rather
than elevate the human race.

A Pomona Man Stricken While Sur
rounded by Bis Family.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Aug. 18.— Hiram
D. Carter was struck by lightning, at
Pomona, this afternoon and killed. His
body was blackened and burned, and his
eyes were deep-sunken in their sockets
when he was picked up.
As the weather had been very oppres
sive Carter removed his coat and sat in
tbe shade of a fig tree in his front yard.
About 4 o'clock a storm gathered and rain
began to fall, accompanied by thunder and
lightning. A bolt of lightning struck
Carter in the chest, causing his death in
sight of his family, who were on the
porch.
Philanthropist Crittcnden's Work.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Aug. 16.— Charles
N. Crittenden of New York, who is known
by his efforts to reclaim fallen women, de
livered his first address here to-day. He

Christian Church of Southern California
is now holding its general convention at

tional exercises, Mr. Smither speaking be

NEWS Of MARE ISLAND,
The Pensacola Soon to Be Sent
to Goat Island as a
Training Ship.
Will Be Fitted Out With an Eye
Singly to the Comfort of the
Young Seamen.
VALLEJO, Cal., Aug. 16.— The Thetis
will come out of the dry dock at Mare
Island on Monday and the following day
the Pensacola will be taken into dock to be
examined. In case any of the copper on
the hull requires replacing it will be done.
The Pensacola is to be used as a training
ship for boy?. It will require little out
side of painting to fit the ship. Large and
comfortable, it is just the kind of a craft
to house the young men who are to bs-
come seamen in the American Navy.
Those being selected on board the receiv
ing ship Independence are among the
best class of boys.
Many present themselves, but few are
selected. As soon as the Pensacola is
placed in proper shape for reception of the
boys it will be officered and taken to Goat
Island and anchored.
Word has been received for the con
struction department to go ahead and
build the caisson lor the stone dock, but
as much of the iron is io come from the
East it will be a couple of months before
work is commenced, and then it will take
two months to complete the job.
Repairs are going ahead on all the ships,
but without any particular hurry. Very
few more men will De taken on prior to
September 3. Clerks, watchmen and all
employes considering themselves under
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, MONDAY, AUGUST 17, 1896.
Camp City Guard, the Picturesque Outing Place of Company B, First Regiment Infantry, N. G. C,
at Los Gatos.
the civil service rules are laughing np their
sleeves at how nicely, during the eleventh
hour of the reign of Secretary Herbert,
they have been placed in life positions to
the exclusion of all persons that may be
long to the party of patriotism, protection
and prosperity.
In accordance with the recommenda
tion of Naval Constructor Hich born propo
sals will be received for 242,000 feet of Ore
gon pine in assorted sizes' for ships' deck
plank, to be kept in store at the navy-yard
for use as required. Bids are to be opened
in Washington on the 25th of the month.
It has been the wish of the chief of the
Bureau of Construction for some time past
to have a quantity of timber for deck
planking on hand so that when ships come
to the yard and require repairs to their
decks they can be made without having
to wait for the requisition to be filled.
SAN BERNARDINO STORM.
Terrific Downpour of Rain, Accompanied by
a Heavy Wind Which Does Con
siderable Damage.
SAN BERNARDINO, Cal., Axxg. 16.—
An unusual but not unprecedented atmos
pneric condition obtained in this region
to-day. Tbe morning opened hot and
sultry, with light clouds hanging over the
mountain range. By noon the clouds
were of almost inky blackness and the
distant roar of thunder indicated that at
Squirrel Inn. the Little Bear Valley and
the Big Bear Valley the rain was falling
in torrents. An hour later the storm
clouds moved westward, and Mentoneand
Redlands, at the head of the great valley,
were receiving a terrific downpour of
water.
The storm-ditches were overflowed, and
considerable damage was done to stores
and other property in Redlands. It is re
ported that many orchards were injured
by the rush of waters. In the highlands
trees were blown down and considerable
damage done to the growing orange crops.
In this city the rain fell for two hours
and wrought a radical change in the tem
perature. There was very little wind
here and no damage was done.
Not since August, 1891, has there been a
storm in midsummer that in extent and
severity approached to-day's visitation.
Undoubtedly the streams leading into the
Bear Valley reservoir, and all the streams
from which this valley draws water for
irrigation, have been vastly replenished.
FAESNO WIDOW'S PLAINT
Mrs. Ellen Hilyard Sues Rancher
Bahwell for Breach of
Promise.
She Is Fair and Forty, and the De
fendant Is Hoary With His
Six y Yjars.
FRESNO, Cal., Aug. 16.— Mrs. Ellen H
Hilyard, by her attorney, George L. Hood,
yesterday filed a suit for $25,000 against
Adam Bahwell of Tulare County for
breach of promise. The plaintiff is about
40 years old and a widow, while the de
fendant is about 60 and a widower. Bah
well resides at Three Rivers, near Visaiia,
and is considered to be worth about $100,
--000. The complaint recites the usual dam
ages which are experienced by plaintiffs
in breach of promise suits by, the non
fulfillment on the part of the defendants of
their promises.
Mrs. Hilyard claims that she has in her
possession a large number of letters writ
ten to her by Mr. Bahwell, in which he ex
pressed his deep love for Her and stated
repeatedly that he would marry her. But
he afterward changed his mind, and Mrs.
Hilyard wauts damages.
LAIRS OF THE TRAMP RAIDED.
Sixty-six Walking lourints Crowded
Into I''renno's Jail.
FRESNO, Cal.. Aug. 16.— The police
and constables made a raid on tramps be
tween 3 o'clock and daylight this morning
and gathered in sixty-six of the tribe.
They locked the prisoners in jail, and that
institution was very much crowded.
Twenty-eight of the tramps had to be put
into the women's ward, there being no
female prisoners in the jail at the time.
The officers raided all the "hobo roosts"
in the city — box-cars, barns and haystacks.
Along with the laboring people who come
to Fresno annually during the fruit season
there is always an influx of worthless char
acters. These have become very bold of
late, and it was therefore determined to
gather them in.
ROMAN BATHS FOR SAN DIEGO.
Arrangement* Under Way for the Con
struction of Extensive Tanks.
SAN DIEGO. Cal., Aug. 16.— An insti
tution that will be a welcomed addition to
the city is the Roman baths which E. S.
Babcock proposes to establish as soon as
arrangements can be perfected.
They will be somewhat after the style of
the Sutro public baths at the entrance to
San Francisco Bay, and besides the facili
ties for bathing, will have other con
veniences, which will make them a credit
to San Diego.
The features that have made the Coro
nado baths »o popular will be embodied
in the new baths, but the institution to be
erected on this side of the bay will be on
a grand scale.
Tbe building, according to the present
idea, will be two stories high, with a tower
running up from the most prominent cor
ner. The architecture will be modern.
Balconies will run around the interior,
as well as portions of the exterior at the
second story, and there will be spaces to
be filled by potted plants. Light is to be
admitted through a dome, which will con
stitute the roof.
LIVELY FIGHT
IN THE SIXTH,
Patton and Rose Forces in
Battle Array at Los
Angeles.
EACH CLAIMS VICTORY.
To-Day Decides the Race for the
Democratic Congressional
Nomination.
POPULISTS SEIZING FUSION.
Their Efforts to Hive Barlow Indorsed
Not Likely to Be Suc
cessful.
Los Angeles Office of The Call,)
328 South Broadway, V
Los Angeles, Cal., Aug. 16^ )
Most of the delegates to the adjourned
meeting of the Sixth District convention
of the Democratic party, which will con
vene here to-morrow, are in the city. All
manner of rumors have been flying about
the streets during the day. The Rose
contingent claims that Rose is a sure
winner on the first ballot. Patton, how
ever, has his forces well in hand and is
sure of one additional vote owing to the
action of Delegate Irvine, who has re
voked his proxy given to Chairman Aler
ritt at the Ventura meeting.
The Populist delegates from San Luis
Obispo are expected here to-morrow in
time to attend tbe Democratic conven
tion, and it is understood they will make
a strong plea in favor of the Indorsement
of their nominee, A. C. Barlow of San
Luis Obispo.
This move of the Populists will meet
with small encouragement from Demo-
crats and will not be urged by the rank
and file of the Populist party here, which,
as friends of Dillon, are not at all pleased
with the manner in which that gentle
man was turned down at San Luis Obispo.
Patton'B friends claim that in the event of
his nomination he will get the bulk of the
Populist vote of Los Angeles County, de
spite the nomination of Barlow.
The triangular fight which is certain to
result will unquestionably result in the
re-election of Congressman McLachian,
the Republican nominee.
BANNOCK COUNTY REPUBLICANS.

ing in. At the close of the convention a
McKinley Club of twenty members was
organized.

partment
NOGALES, Ariz., Aug. 16.— Captain
Dodge of the infantry company sent
to the north, returned at 6 o'clock to
night, with a squad of soldies, having
in charge three Yaqui Indians captured
this afternoon a few miles east of Tubac,
twenty-two miles north of Nogales. The
Indians were traveling toward Tucson
and were heavily armed. They say they
came from Washington Camp, a raining
town on the American side, twenty miles
northeast of Nogales and were on their
way to Oro Blanco in search of work.
They deny that they had anything to do
with the fight at Nogales. They will be
held by Colonel Bacon to await the action
of the War Department.
A report has just been received that Cap
tain Bomis is on the way from Oro Blanco
with thirty more Yaquis found in that vi
cinity this morning. All were armed.
Mexican cavalrymen, who arrived late
l«st night from Buenos Ayres, a United
States custom-house fifty "miles west of
here, report that a ereat many Indians are
going toward Sasabe, a Mexican town
seven miles west of Buenos Ayres.
Only a portion of .those he saw had arms
and he did not know what they were go
ing to Sasabe for.
A Mexican custom guard while drunk
to-night shot and wounded a bartender in
Cazabon's saloon at Nogales, Sonora. Two
shots were fired, but only one took effect,
making a flesh wound in the hip. The
shots caused great excitement for a few
moments, as the people thought the
Yaquis had returned to take the town.
Killed Near Truckee.
TRUCKEE, Cal., Aug. 16.— Henry Nel
son, an expert logger, was found dead in
his cabin at Schaeffer'a lumber-yard this
morning. He had been working at Schaei
fer's for several years.

Here is an industry that is a credit to the community, em-
ploying o\<-r two hundred white wage earners. Every employ*
contributes to the prosperity of San Francisco. Patronize a
California Clothing Manufactory instead of sending yonr
money East.
This picture (from a photograph) shows how and where our
clothing is made. Our Factory is an interesting object lesson,
well wortn a visit. The public cordially invited, at all times.
No "sweat-shop" system ! Legitimate labor organizations can
know what we pay employes — our Dooks are open.
$io Overcoats==s4.7s.
We found we had an overstock of Tan
Kersey Cloth on hand, such as we make
into Fall Overcoats for $10. We can't carry
this cloth over to another season, so we have
made it up. We now offer these $10 Over-
coats at a price to sell them quick — $4.75.
Only one sold to a purchaser.
Better buy one for next Winter if you
don't need it now.

KENNAH'S DEATH
NEAR SIX-MILE,
Futile Efforts of the Old
Man's Friends to Save
His Life.
WEDGED IN A CREVASSE
Succumbed to the Cold While
His Companions Toiled to
Reach Him.
SAID HE SUFFERED TORTURES.
His Last Word an Affirmative Reply
When Asked if His Pain
Was Great.
VICTORIA, B. C, Aug. 16.-Full de
tails of the horrible death of Merchant
Edward Kennah of Mt. Vernon, Wash.,
while on a pleasure and prospecting trip
in the Cooks Inlet country, have been re
ceived. They confirm the brief account
given in these dispatches of Kennah
slowly freezing to death while wedged in
a glacier crevasse, his friends being un
able to extricate him.
A party of six men, Kennah among
them, left Six-mile Creek on July 2 to
ascend T wen i.y-mile River. After rowing
twenty miles up Turnagain arm to the
mouth of the river they packed their
blankets and provisions on their backs
and traveled on foot. When about fifteen
miles up the river they found their way
carred by a steep and narrow gorge.
Leaving the canyon, they climbe ! the
mountain on one side, crossed a low divide
and struck a tributary canyon which
emptied into the river above the gorge.
The upper end, however, was filled by a
large glacier.
They started to cross the glacier with
the guide about 400 yards in the lead.
The second man in line suddenly broke
through the snow crust and fall into a
crevasse. His rifle, which he was carry
ing in one hand, cauglft on either edge of
the crevasse and he easily pulled himself
out. The next man took Kennah's shovel
and laying it on the snow stepped across.
He handed the shovel to its owner and
went on his way.
He bad gone about thirty feet when
there was a cry from the rear, "Man
down."" Kennah was nowhere in sight.
Four men hurried to the crevasse and
looked down. The old man could not be
seen, but answered their calls. Ha said
he was not hurt, but that he was slipping
down further. The men hastily tied three
pairs of blankets together for a rope.
The guide who came back added a piece
of clothes line, making a rope about sixty
feet long. They let this down with a pick
on tbe end of it and told the old man to
place it between his feet. He said that he
| could not move his arms. Evidently one
I leg was loose, for the men abovecould
hear him moving the pick around.
"Boys, it is no use. I am a goner. I
can do nothing to save myself. I will
have to die."
The others cheered him to keep up bis
courage. His. partner, a small man, tied
the improvised rope around his waist and
went down. He found that the crevasse
went straight down for twenty feet, when
it branched off at an angle to a width of
eighteen inches. He could get down only
thirty feet and Kennah waa yet twenty
feet further down and out of sight.
The unfortunate man beeged him not
to risk his life any further, and said: "I
can't talk any more, boys." In answer to
their question as to whether he was suf
fering much pain, he said, faintly, "Yes."
That was the last word he uttered, and
his companions concluded that he had
frozen to death, and it was impossible to
do anything more for him. Reluctantly
they wended their way down the glacier.
