early on Saturdays has spread Into
the wholesale district and there is
every reason to believe that In the
near future nearly every clerk, account
ant and porter in the large stores of the
city will be given a half-holiday each
week. About two months ago an effort
was made to close the retail stores early
Saturday evenings, and a number of es
tablishments have since been observing
such an "agreement. Where formerly
clerks were kept employed until late at
night they now nave an opportunity to get
out and move around among people.
The first to start the early closing move

called upon several wholesalers and rep

The committee at its last meeting de
cided to await the return of John D.
Spreckels, who has accepted the position
of commodore of the naval parade, In
order to consult him in regard to certain
details before presenting Its final report.
The scope of the celebration committee,
of which E. Myron Wolf is chairman, will
also have a report to . present. This will
include additional suggestions as to what
there should be In the way of entertain

It has been suggested that as the cele
bration Is to be in remembrance of the
admission of California Into the Lnion
there should be a historic float, among
them on* representing, the passing
through the Golden Gate of the old-tim6
steamship Panama,' which Drought the
news to this city that California had been
admitted into the Union. Whenthat ves
sel entered the harbor she was decked
from stem to stern with fla«s and signals
in honor of the important event., for in
those days news came by the isthmus or

tidings from New -York. A float repre

• Yesterday afternoon there was a meet
ing of the conference committee of the
finance committee, at which Police Com
missioner "Newhall presided. ¦ There were
added to this conference committee, which
subsequently changed its name to the ex
ecutive council of the finance commit
tee, Colonel J. R. Howell as treasurer and
Henry S. Martin as vice chairman. A
number of plans for the collection of
funds, and a number of names suggested
for the finance committee which is to so
licit donations were discussed, but no ac
tion was taken and none will be until the
executive council meets this afternoon at
5 o'clock with the presidents of the local
parlors In order to receive the names of
those who would make pood collectors.
James D. Phelan. chairman of the gen
eral committee, contributed the nrst
amount, $1000. "just to start the thing 1
along." He expressed the hope that many
more who can afford to will equal his do
nation, as it Is the desire of the general
committee to secure at least $50,000 to
carry on the celebration. It was sug
gested that as the citizens will not be
called upon this year to contribute to the
Fourth of July fund, that they give what
they would have given to that fund to the
Admission day celebration.
Milton Besse of Santa Cruz has been se
lected to visit this city to ropresent Santa

ter of fecuring headquarters where they
can hold receptions. These parlors are
arranging for an excursion, to open on
the Sth of September and close on the 12th.
Their members will come to this city to
take part in the festival. Thry intend to
be in it at the beginning and stay with it
until the finish. The members of these
parlors, who will appear In the parade,
will be headed by a ban<l of sixteen
pieces and will be attired in white duck
pantaloons, light negligee shirts, neat tlea,
sashes and soft hata.
The street parade committee at Its
meeting last night decided to send cut
Invitations to the Supervisors of each
county to co-operate with the celebration

that as each county devotea a stated sum
to advertising purposes a portion of that
money be used to" supply a Coat emble

Those Figures Show That Oakland
Will Have a Population of
About Seventy Thou
Oakland Office San Francisco Call,
1118 Broadway, June 20. .
The population of. Oakland will be 70,000
or a little more. S
The census enumerators who have been
working In this city closed their labors
to-day, and while their footings have not
been made, and could not be given out If
they were, it Is estimated that.the:popu
lation will at least reach the figure given,
if not go higher.
Assistant Supervisor, of the Census
Whitney gave that llgure as the result of
a system of rough computation that has
been kept by the letter-carriers of Oakr
land. As assistant supervisor Mr. Whit
ney U prevented from giving- out any
figures upon the census, and a violation
of this would mean a tine of $500; but he
says that the letter-carriers of Oakland
have been watching the daily reports of
the enumerators as they went through
the mails and that they have secured
these figures as a rough result. The car
riers are much interested in the result of
this census, for If the. population of Oak
land goes sufficiently high its rating in
the postal world will be increased and
there will be additional carriers' and ad
ditional pay allowed.
"The carriers," said Mr. Whitney, "have
been watching the daily "reports . that go
through the mails from the enumerators,
and they say that, estimating from what
they have thus seen, the population will
reach 70,000. Of course, they • have no
right. to do this, but "they have done It.
These figures are not the result of any In
formation that I have In my hands.
The last census gave Oakland less than
50,000 population. The city has always
claimed that this census was defective,
and with the annexed district it is claimed
that the population is between 75,000 and

As In the Republican National Conven
tion the call for delegates from Hawaii
was omitted by the Democrats. This was
due to the unprecedented condition of
things and the oversight was accidental.
Realizing this the party leaders In Hono-
lulu organized and In general convention

great party nominating conventions.
The Hawaiian Democratic Convention
met on the 9th of this month and elected
the above named delegates. They will re

proceed to Kansas City. Just what posi
tion the delegates occupy with reference
to the other delegates chosen by the vari
ous States is not as yet known. A meet

Palace Hotel, at which all the Hawaiian
delegates will be present to discuss the
situation and prepare plans for future
The prrsonn-el of the delegation Is repre
sentative of the political and business
world of Honolulu. Prince David is .dis
tantly connected with ex-Queen Ulluo
kalani and was a nephew of King Kala
kaua. He has been free from any political
entanglements, but has now allied him
self with the Democratic party, lately
born in the islands. William H. Cornwell
is a prominent business man and;was once
a member of the Legislature durltig the
regency. John D. Holt is the head of a
large liquor business in Honolulu. John
H. Wise studied for the ministry at Ober

Oakland Office San Francisco Call,
1118 Broadway, June 20.
Judge Hall granted two divorces to-day
on the ground .of intemperance. In each
case the husband and head of the fam
ily was the one with . the appetite for
strong drink. Mabel A. Jaquith was re
leased from the bonds that bound her to
Alfred H. Jaquith and Ora Briggs was
granted 1 a divorce from George Briggs.
In the case of Mrs. Jaquith against her
husband, the plaintiff testified* that for
over a jrcar and' a half 'since her mar
riage she had been forced to rely upon
her parents' for her support, v While her
husband earned good , wages at his trade
he spent his money - in . appeasing his
thirst. ¦ Saturday night was his favorite
time for Indulging in alcoholic beverages
to the great detriment of the family purse
and larder. Sunday was spent in sober
ing up and on Monday Jaquith would be
unable to' go " to work.' Finally things
reached such a stage that Mrs. Jaquith
abandoned her husband and' went to live
with 'her parents.. ¦ .
In the suit of Ora Briggs against George
Briggs, the : plaintiff- declared that a few
years after their marriage in 18S4 her hus
band , developed such an appetite for in
toxicating liquor, that he became utterly
¦worthless and refused to work. His In
dulgence in -intoxicants, according to Mrs.
Brigge, on several occasions led 'him to
abuse her:in a cruel manner. On one oc
casion when she refused "him money he
struck her, to the floor. and, brandishing. a
razor-above her head threatened to cut
her throat if she did not give him' money.
The custody of Lyman . E. Briggs, four
teen years old, was -awarded to the
mother. ¦' ' •¦'¦'- ¦¦-
