The people of San Francisco will take
celight In extending the hand, of fellow-

Commencing at 3 o'clock this morning,
special Epworth trains began arriving
every half hour from Ogden. Several par-
ties arrived yesterday, but they were at-
tached to regular trains, and there wero
comparatively few leaguers aboard: The
Wisconsin delegation, which left Ogden
at 3 p. m. on Sunday, was due to'arrive
at midnight last night, but'owing to the
congestion of traffic the special wlllnot
reach here until about 9 o'clock this
morning. All of the trains are several
hours late, owing to the tremendous trav
ei, and no calculations as to the arrival
of any particular party.can safely, be re
lied upon. The time schedule was adhered
to as much as possible by the railway offi-
Clai s# but the safety of the parties en
route frequently demanded radical
changes in time/cards. "The result has
been delays more or less vexatious to
friends of the travelers in this city, but
in a rush like the one with which the
railway companies are now coping safety
rather than promptness has been the chief
desideratum. ¦ • •
The special bearing the Los Angeles-sec
tlon of the great chorus arrived in the
city over the coast-route shortly after 1
o'clock this morning. The party, num
bering 750 persons, was greeted at the Va
lencla-street station by a reception com
mittee of twenty-two members under
charge of Miss. Rosina Treadwell. At
10:35 yesterday morning a party ofitwenty
leaguers from the southern ¦ part of the
"State was met at the same place and-es
corted to the Pavilion, where quarters for
the visitors were secured,
