HERE IN HONOR
Exposition Officials Seek Aid in
Influencing the Navy
War Vessels Necessary to Prop
erly Carry Out the Ground
In order that the arrival of Presi
dent Taft in San Francisco may be
more fittingly celebrated, the directors
of the Panama-Pacific international ex
position have issued an appeal to the
various commercial organizations
about the bay asking them to wire a
request to the navy department that
the Pacific fleet be ordered to remain
In San Francisco harbor until after
the president reaches this city.
Orders were issued several weeks
iirecting the cruisers West Vir
ginia, California and Colorado to pro
ceed to the Hawaiian islands not later
than September 16 for target and bat
tle practice. The three ships are still
in the harbor making ready for the
It is necessary to have this fleet in
the bay when the president arrives so
carry out the proper ceremonies I
befitting such an occasion. To accom- |
plish this a vast number of telegrams ]
have been sent east both to the secre- |
tary of the navy and other officials '
high in the federal government serv- j
ice. But as the time is drawing near 1
and no change of orders have yet been j
issued changing the sailing date of j
the fleet the directors consider it ad
visable to throw every weight possible
to keep the war vessels here.
It is planned to have a naval review
for the president when he arrives, and
have the ships fire a presidental
salute of 21 guns.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL
LABOR MEN WANT
MORE ROLPH TALK
Besiege Candidate to Increase
Number of Meetings on
James Rolph Jr. spent the greater
part of yesterday with his family
motoring in the park and along: the
boulevard In the afternoon and stay
ing home In the evening.
Accompanied by his young son, he
went to Harbor View yesterday morn-
Ing where he took pleasure in a salt
water plunge. Rolph returned from
Santa Rosa Saturday night and on the
trip accross the bay in the ferryboat
Tamalpais he was given a rousing re
ception by the passengers.
Rolph will address six or seven meet
ings each night this week except Sat
urday, when two big gatherings Will
be held. His supporters in the union
labor districts In the south side of the
city are clamoring for more meetings
in their neighborhood, and next week
will be devoted almost entirely to
answering their requests. Rolph is
determined to wage an active campaign
for the remaining days preceding the
primary election rignt in the heart of
the enemy's territory.
The Rolph meeting this evening in
Knights of the Red Branch hall
promises to be a large one. John E.
McDougald. who is himself a delegate
to the Building Trades council, and a
member of the Marble Cutter's union,
will preside, and the speakers will be
selected from the republican ticket, for
the meeting will be under the auspices
of the Republican county committee.
"Back to the district in which he
was born," the notices of the meeting
Another big gathering for tonight
will be that at American hall. Twen
tieth and Capp streets, under the aus
pices of the Thirty-fifth District James
Rolph Jr. Non-Partisan club. John H.
McCallum will preside at this meeting
and the speakers, in addition to Rolph,
will be Thomas E. Hayden. Frank H.
Gould* and Dr. A. H. Glanninl.
For two reasons the Rolph meeting
tonight at Alabama and Army streets
will be unusual. First, it will be held
in a carriage shed, the largest "hall"
to be secured in the neighborhood. And
while it is in progress McCarthy will
be holding forth to one of his meet
ings within a block at Alabama street
and Precita avenue. Dodgers adver
tising both meetings have been dis
tributed and a test of the candidates'
popularity in that section will be made.
The Rolph club of the thirty-ninth
district, composed principally of union
labor men, will hold a meeting in
Richmond hall tonight. This will be
the third time Rolph has spoken in
that hall, but it is expected that the
meeting will be a banner one. The
second meeting last week was larger
than the first one earlier in the cam
paign and seemed to show that Rolph
has been growing in popularity in the
Richmond district. Both previous
meetings have been overflow affairs, at
which Rolph has been compelled to
make speeches indoors and to the
What is termed a "grand smoker"
will be held by the James Rolph club
of the thirty-eighth, thirty-ninth and
fortieth precincts of the thirty-ninth
district Wednesday evening at 947 Cole
street, near Carl, club headquarters.
Commission Says Missionary's
Writings Contain Nothing
Deserving of Criticism
Word has been received from Rome
that the commission appointed by the
Pope to examine into the qualifications
for canonization of Father Magin Ca
tala, "the holy man of Santa Clara,"
found in the writings of Father Catala
nothing deserving of criticism. Other
questions concerning the missionary
will be taken up now.
The next step will probably be the
examination into the theological and
cardinal virtues of Father Catala.
Father Catala was born in 1761 in
the Montblanco diocese of Terragona.
Spain. At the age of 16 he entered the
order of friars minor and came to
America. For some years he labored
in the missions of Mexico, but in 1794
he came to this state and for 36 years
was stationed at Santa Clara. He de
voted himself with such ardor to the
conversion of Indians that he became
known as the apostle to the Santa
Father Catala's reputation for holi
ness was supported by reports of won
derful prodigies. In the chapel of the
church of Santa Clara there is a cruci
fix for which Christ is said to have
spoken orally to the priest. So re
markable were the exemplifications of
heavenly favor in his name that in 1875
Rev. Joseph Sadoc Alemany, O. P..
archbishop of San Francisco, began the
canonical examination during which
62 witnesses gave sworn evidence re
garding his saintly life and miracles
performed by him during his life and
by his intercession after death.
Father Catala was a Franciscan and
died 81 years ago. He is the first mis
sionary who lived and worked in Cali
fornia to have his name proposed for

HIGH SCHOOL BOYS
TRY TO SWIM GATE
Are Caught by Contrary Tide
When Over Halfway
BERKELEY. Sept. 10.—A valiant ef
fort was made today by five students
of the Berkeley high school to swim
the Golden gate from Fort point to
Lime point, but owing to being caught
in a strong current when over half of

swimmers, was finally rescued by men
on a government tug who saw his sig
nals of distress.
The boys who made the effort were
George Lindsay, Otis Marston, Phillip
Hodgkln, Willard Mcßlroy and Arthur
Kidder. They were in good condition
for the test, having been in constant
practice for the last two weeks.
The boys were in the water over
an hour before they were picked up.
They entered the water at Lime point
at 12:30 o'clock.

SMALL BOY IS SAD;
CIRCUS TO CLOSE
Today Will See Last Perform
ances of Big Three Ring
Ringling Brothers' circus will close
its San Francisco engagement today.
Both shows yesterday were attended
by thousands, the big tent being taxed
to its utmost capacity. According to
the souvenir program, the circus is
bigger and better than ever before, and
this'opinion was concurred in by those
who witnessed the vast army of so
called world famed performers, animal
As far as quality is concerned the
Ringling show has, If anything, a bit
too much, and it is imp6ssible to see
all there is to be seen at one per
formance. With a dozen or more star
acts going on all the time one needs
more than two eyes to take it all in.
A circus would be incomplete with
out performing elephants and downs.
Ringllng Brothers' show has two score
of elephants and 50 clowns. The per
forming troupe of elephants especially
Is well trained and they prove to be
one of the most Interesting features of
the big show. The clowns have many
new stunts to offer and they do not
depend on the oldtime slap stick finale
to tap the fountain of laughter.
Of the feature acts the Flying
Georges, the Bonesetti troupe, Davis
family and the Delno troupe furnish
thrilling excitement. The Ringling
show claims to have the largest trav
eling menagerie in the world, and this
statement would appear to be borne
out by the large circle of cages, con
taining all manner of beasts.
There are the usual side shows, pea
nut butchers, lemonade and popcorn
stands, free shows and the big concert.
