The exercises at the Presidio closed with

a detachment of United States troops and
the sounding of taps by the army buglers
The programme at the Presidio Cemetery
was as follows:
TROOPS FIRE VOLLEY.
Youth and old age united at the Na
tional Cemetery at the Presidio yester
day to do honor to the memory of those
who in defense of the Stars and Stripes
gave up their lives. Youth was repre
sented by the soldiers v stationed at the
Presidio— while the members of the George
H. Thomas Post of the Grand Army of
the Republic were the men upon whom
rest the marks of age.
At the cemetery large crowds congre
gated to decorate the graves of those who
fell in defense of. nhe flag. Fathers,
brothers, gisters, mothers and friends of
the soldier dead visited the last resting
place of the boy in blue. When at 12 m
the national salute of 21 guns was fired
there was not a grave in the silent city
not decorated. Following the salute came
the rendering of "Nearer, My God, to
Thee*' by the artillery band. Then John H.
Roberts of George H. Thomas Post, who
acted as chairman of the day, spoke for
several minutes, reminding- the veterans of
the two wars of the sacrednes.-s of the day
and of the necessity of the continuance
of the yearly tribute paid to the men who
gave up their lives to enhance the slory
of the flag. Rev. W. W. Case delivered
the invocation, and the California Quar
tet rendered appropriate music The
orator of the day, Hon. A. J. Buckles,
Superior Judge of Solano County, followed
with an eloquent eulogy In which he
spoke of the loss in numbers of the Grand
Army since the last memorial day cele
bration, and called upon the younger men
to "see to It that the brave spirits who In
defense of the flag had braved the dangers
of a foreign land, and carried the banner
of freedom to victory" were not forgot

Mayor Schmitz and his wife sat on the
steps of the dancing pavilion, and behind
them in a group were the officers of the

taken, i , ,
All the events, forty in number, were
keenly contested. . Most interest was
evinced in the bagpipe competition for a
$200 gold medal. There were only four
contestants, several who had entered not
making their appearance. The judges, who
were in a tent so that they could not see.
the contestants, were John Morrison and
D.. D. McRae of Sacramento and James

pibrochs, marches, reels and strathspeys.
The first prize was awarded to Ed Ross/
the second to "Adam Ross and the third
to W. Ranwick.'
MANY PHIZES FOR CAMPBELL.
MAYOR SCHMITZ SPEAKS.
There w^re loud cries for a speech, and
the Mayor laughingly compiled. He said
he had heard a great deal of the hospital
ity of the Scotch people in their native
land, and although he had not had th<»
pleasure, of visiting "the land o' cakes,"
he was , satisfied from his experience on
the picnic ground that the term, "genuine
Highland hospitality" could be ungrudg
ingly bestowed upon the Scotchmen resi
dents in San Francisco. He expressed
himself as. delighted with what he had
seen and concluded by paying a compli
ment to the officers of .the club. His re
marks .were greeted with loud cheers...
A large number of enthusiasts from a
distance -were present. Among them was
a delegation of more than fifty from Sac
ramento, including ex-Chiefs John Morri
son. James McCaw, Tom Scott, H. K.
McLellan and D. D. McRae of the Cale
donian Club of that city; David Hanna of
Germantown, Glenn County, and Robert
McQuarrie of Vallejo.
Among the guests of the club from the
c'ty were Judges Carroll Cook, Hunt, Mo
gan and Cabaniss; former Judge Belcher;
Rev. Fathers Grant and Praught, Gavin
McNab, Jlmmle Britt, Assistant -District
Attorney Greeley and Chief Deputy Cor
oner P. J. McCormick.
A pleading feature of the outing was the
presence of Mayor Schmitz, accompanied
by his wife. They seemed to thoroughly
appreciate the dancing by girls and boys
in. Highland costume and the other
events. They were escorted to the pavilion
by *t-Chiefs D. R. McNeill, Angus Mc-
Leoaand John F. Kennedy, and as they
entelbd the band*- played "Hail to the
Chief." J . ¦¦> .
8000 people were on the grounds,"
and from the general expressions heard
they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
The weather was perfect and everything
tended to a most enjoyable outing.

In 1812. by the valor of our soldiers and

rulers, the United States won recognition from
s.11 the world as an international power; and
we cet at naught the decrees of Napoleon pro

England, and by a series of brilliant victories

It is a beautiful and noble ceremonial, this
American custom of decorating the graves of

equality, for all who lie beneath these grassy

To-day we remember the great revolution,
when three millions of colonists, scattered over
a sparely settled territory extending from
Maine to Florida, along a little fringe of civ

dared to defy the powerful mother country,
and ring out the tocsin of liberty and equality;

.LONDON, May 30.— The birthday of
King Edward, - who was born November
V1841, was officially celebrated to-day, tt
having been decided, as announced in the
official gazette April 15, that his Majesty's
natal day was to be celebrated in London
and on the home stations May 30, as be
ing the most suitable. to make a military
display. On the other hand, foreign sta
tions will celebrate it November 9, the
actual anniversary of his birth.
General interest in the celebration was
apparently not seriously diminished by
the expectations of the greater series of
events surrounding the coronation. The
towns throughout ihe kingdom were gay
ly. decorated and the shipping at the vari
ous ports made the gayest displays of
bunting. The day was observed at all
the home. military : and naval headquar
ters with parades and salutes.
The chlet celebration was the ceremony
of "trooping the colors" at the Horse
Guards here and the presentation of col
ors to the new Irish Guards. Stands cov
ered with crimson cloth were erected on
three sides of the parade grounds and
were occupied by thousands of privileged
spectators, including the United States
Ambassador, Joseph H. Choate, and Mrs.
Choate, and the . secretary of the United
States embassy, Henry White. Thou
sands of other persons were grouped
dosely around the lines of sentries. The
troops taking part in the ceremonies were
battalions of the Irish Guards, Grenadier
Guards, Scots Guards and detachments of
the Life Guards..
Tremendous cheering greeted the ap
pearance of the King and his brilliant
£f. co^' , whIch Included many notabilities.
His Majesty, who rode between the Prince
of Wales and the Duke of Connaught
wore the uniform of a colonel of the Irish
Guards. Lord Roberts, the commander
in chief of the forces, who led the proces
sion, also wore the uniform of colonel of
the Irish Guards. Queen Alexandra and
other members of the royal family viewed
the scene from the windows of the Horse
Guards. The 'crowds present bared their
heads while his Majesty proceeded to the
saluting point. -
After an inspection of the line of troops
and the presentation of the colors the
ceremonies ended with a review of all
the troops on the ground. ( The King dur
ing the afternoon presented colors to the
King b Company of the Grenadier Guards.
Ihe weather was wet and raw.
King Edward Invested the Duke "of
?K° U f h . an . d tne Duke ot Bedford
with the insignia of the Order of the
Garter at Buckingham Palace this after
noon. The ceremony was more Imposing
than any similar event which > had oc
curred for years, it being the King's In
te l ?} Z n . to revlvc a11 the old-time pomp
which formerly distinguished the ceremo
nies connected with this order. A notable
company of Knights of the Garter, in
cluding the Prince of Wales, the Duke of
Ccnnaught, the Marquis of Salisbury the
".^"i? i, of Londonaerry and ,the Duke
of Norfolk, attended. ,'
There is no truth In the report pub
lished in the United States that the Chan
cellor of the Exchequer. Sir Michael
Hicks-Beach, will resign after the coro
nation, owing to the persistence of the
Colonial Secretary, Joseph Chamberlain,
in retention of the grain tax as prelim
inary to;, his zollverein scheme.

More than 2500 people journeyed to Glen
Ellen yesterday to participate in the fif
teenth annual parish picnic of Holy Crosa
Church. The outings of the parishioners
have always been highly successful, but
this year's affair eclipsed them all, both in
point of attendance and in the enjoyment
afforded the pleasure seekers. It required
two trains of fourteen cars each to carry
the crowds. Rev. Father McGlnty, paato*
o* the church, was ubiquitous In his at
tentions to the comfort of his flock, and
not a single unpleasant feature marred
the success of the outing. Lunch baskets
were largely in evidence- and dancing and
games contributed to the pleasure of the
day. The following committees n\4 the
