OAKLAND, June 8. — Judge Ogden this
morning denied the application of Mrs.
Enilie Paulovich for a divorce from Ste

Paulovich for her desire for a separation,
and after revoking an order for alimony
made several months ago advised her to
either return to her husband or take steps
to support herself.
The plaintiff testified that her husband
had a habit of showing his displeasure' by
knocking her down and biting pieces out
of her arms and neck, but these state
ments were not substantiated. She also
accused him of intemperance.
Paulovich denied the charge and in re
ply told a long tale of suffering because of
the indiscreet actions of his wife.
When Judge Ogden some time ago or
dered Paulovlch to pay his wife $40 a
month alimony Paulovich told his attor
ney. W. H. L. Hynes, that he would
throw his money Into the bay before he
would pay her a cent.

In coiumii of fours, in platoons and in

awarded by masters competent to judgo.
At 7:30 o'clock the League of the Cross
Band commenced a concert which con
tinued until nearly 9 o'clock. As soon as
the doors of the Pavilion were opened the
crowd began to flock in. The street in
front was black with a watching thron:;.
Inside were the sounds of music well
played, the tramp of drilling cadets eager
for the last trials before the contest, the
clash of sabers in friendly rivalry, th<>
bustle and confusion and voices of people
hastening to their seats. Then there was
a cheer which rang through the big Pa
vilion and echoed into the street. Major
General Shafter. with Ills aids. Captain
Morse and Lieutenant Wilson, had ar
rived and was being generously welcomed
as he was escorted to the reviewing stand.
In a few minutes the boys marched on
to the floor, passnig in review before
.General Shafter. They were a manly set
of fellows and well deserved the jyaise
which General Shafter pave as they
marched before him and saluted. Around
the Pavilion they moved each company
receiving the plaudits of its champions
until the last had passed from view and
the floor was cleared for the first drill
in the competition. It was given by Com
pany K of St. Paul's parish, under com
mand of Captain James H. Reilly. The
company drilled well and in a competition
loss suevere would have won. But it was
matched against two competitors of no
mean merit. Company L of Mission Do

Frank Grimby. followed and behaved
with exceptional ability. Then came the
medal winner. Company D of Sacred
Heart parish, under command of Captain
Ignatius D. Dwyer. The contest was
over and the triumph had been won.
In conclusion there was a regimental
parade, the announcement of the judges'
decision and the award of the trophy to
