Among the institutions bearing his name are the great observatory on .Mount Hamil ton; the Lick free baths and the Lick School of .Mechanical Aits, which is boon to be opened, the Academy of Science building and the Pioneer building. One hundred thousand collars was set aside for a monument, descriptive- of Cal ifornia, to be erected in front of the City hall. This monument h. u-t been com pleted, and was unveiioi this morning.

The Man Who Engineered the VAj; Gold Deal By "Which the Syndicate Cap tured the ISontN, TELLS ALL AD OUT IT. Uncle Sam in the JJusiuess of Furnishinir Investment for Rich People Who "W ant Something Safe. New Youk, Nov. 29. The most fam ous nidn in V all street today is John A. Stewart, who engineered the gold deal by which a syndicate secured the $o0, O.X),0oi in bonds issued by the gov ernment. Mr. Stew-art was interviewed today on how he did it. Stewart has had many-successes in his Ion g career in New i ors liuauce. Away back iu the war time his reputation for shrewdness and patriotism was so great that Secretary Chase induced him to sacrifice his busi ness and become the sub-treasurer at New York. He has managed a good many millions of his own for years and years, and has done it quite well. And he has managed many more miiliotis for other people as president of the United States Trust company. liut this last is tua biggest ?.tij most successful thing that he or -any other man has demo in Wall street iu years; one of the big iiuaucial operations of the world "How didyou do it, Mr. Stewart? There, are many people who understand all about how that, sort of thing is done. There aro many more who think they understand it. Tiieu there is a great public that doesn't understand it and simply wonders. Hop can a man raise oU,Uoo,OoO to do anything, however cei .ain tho profit':" Mr. Stewart" is answer to the ipuestiou put to him by tho reporter is worth read ing. "it was a matter that caused a good deal of worry and a good deal of anxiety," he said. "The iirst point, after l had made up my mind to help the government, was to look around and see where the gold was. Vuu see, the point was to get people to go in who had gold and would not draw on the government for it. Well, 1 got be fore me a list of the banks that have large quantities of gold. "Then 1 J: ad to select out of that list those who would use their gold if they went iu, who wanted to invest that gold, who would tako the amount of the bonds that were assigned to them, and lastly, and most important of all in a v.iy. who wouid have confidence enough in those who are at the head of the syndicate to tru-:t to their discretion in bidding." "Do you mean that these men went in without knowing how much they were going to bid'.'" "Certainly, the moat of them did. They truste 1 .bsolui oly to our judgment. But after 1 had make a iist of the names of those I wanted, 1 began wi'h those who would be towers of strength, if 1 suc ceeded in getting them such men as Pierpont Morgan. I went to see them tirst and talked it over and got them to say how much they would take. Then 1 went to the others and got them in. "One of the great diiiieult ies was to keep out those i did not want. When the news of what we were about f-ot out there was a rush of people whom it was hard for me to refuse. 1 did not want them for on? reason or another. "You can see how much diplomacy and going about and urging and sooth ing this required. 'But remember this, there never was a time when we could not have got into the syndicate two or three times as much money as was necessary. There was no trouble about geUmg subscribers. The trouble was to ge; those who had g-old and would consent to the conditions I had to make. "The last point and the most impor tant oi all was the matter of deciding w hat to bid. This was where experience .tad a study of the bond market and a possession of the channels of informa tion came in most strongl v. if wn bid too little, why we would lose a." part of the bond?. If wf bid too much, why the profits of the syndicate would be gone. It was n ecessary to know just wu-t bonds .orn wort.i in or d?r to guard against failure in tne latter consideration. And in the forrer con-sidert-tit.n it was necessary to know- just about what others would bid. No v, I had no means of knowing absolutely. But, fitting here and going about, the information came, and 1 was able to tell with a great deal of accuracy wba. would 1 e bid. lt is so in all matters of this kind. - If a man wants to win, he must be !; to get at those things accu rately beforehand. He must have his lingers on the pulse and kao.v just how it is beating. "Well, the syndicate was completed and vi e put in our bid and it won. It did not take us ten min utes to decide what tj bid. We held a consultp.tion and in just about ten minutes the consultation was over and our decision was made. Now, it is a fortunate thing all around that tho bonds are heid by our party. When they come into the market there will lie no cutting of prices. The holders of bonds can agree among themselves as to the price to be asked. And the fact that the syn dicate holds ail means at least a quarter per cent more profit. "There will be a good profit iu these bonds. The most of them, I believe, wiil be held by the persons who have subscribed iu the syndicate. But rnany of them wdl be sold and there will be a demand for them. A government bond is a ae investment, even if the premium does cut down the rate of interest. The profit for '.he syndicate will not be large, but it will be a substantial profit. IS SEVERE Tiie Well-Knowa I.M-turer Say. ouie Startling Tilings. Ciiicauo, Nov. i'J. Dr. P. S. Henson, the well-known pastor and frequent lec turer at Chatauqua assemblies, made an address to a large audience lait night on "Municipal Government." "The first murderer built a city, whether wjtu any malicious purpose I do net kno. -. It "is said that the Lord made the country and that the devil made the city. Ihe city is said to be a caucer on tho body politic. If that is so, Cain was the first can cer planter. There is danger in the massing of men. In heaven they can afford to have a city because of the absolute purity of the in habitanis. It is terrible to mass humanity in its depravity- You make a compost heap i f it and there is d inger of putrefaction danger of a plague, as a result of this massing, this putrefaction. A s'uriiilicaut fact is the tremendous gravity of the city. For ty years ago one-eighth of the people of this country lived in tho cities. .Now oce-fourth live in them.

I do not wish to fie misun derstood. In London 2 per cent of the population are foreigners. In Chicago, who knows': Seventy per cent or more. I do not object to foreigners.

The People Will Not he Gulled Into Insurrection. Mo.ntoomkky, Ala., Xov. TX The Advertiser says: In view of the sensational utterances given out to the northern press by the Populist Congressman-elect Howard of this state and some correspondents, as to wiiat Kolb and his 2'. ,0u0 followers would do here next Saturo.o-, The. Advertiser asked Governor Jones to state his views us to the prospect of any disorder that day. In response Governor Jones said: "There will not be the slightest dis turbance on inauguration day for two very good easons. First, there is no cause for challenging the result of the electio- as declared on the ollici d eouut. Many of the most intelligent Populate and Bepublicau leaders admit Colonel Oatos's election. If every negro vote in the Black Belt were stricken out, and only the white vote couuted, Oites would stdl have a hanusou.e majority. The cry of fraud, to an extent vitiating the result, is a mere sham urged for ulterior political operations The opposition aro not lacking in courage, but they cannoi be guiled into insurrection on any such pretense as the defeated candidate urges. "Second lt is known that the author ities are thoroughly prepared to stamp out any disorder. We are not in Mexico, w here any petty cluef can issue a pro nunciamento Bnd rally any respectable number of people to his rtandard of re volt. Armed bands, even if they could be gotten together, would not be Permitted to come to the capitol. The masses of our people are thor oughly disgusted at the idea they are ready to lly at each other's throats, and if there vvas any necessity for it, hundreds of Populists would respond to the call of the civil authorities. i'ossibly the defeated candidate may tako the oath of office somewhere before a justice of the peace on inauguration day, and even go to the extent of issuing a proclamation as governor. But tins wou d be just as harmless and have as little effect as the doings of patients in insane hospitals, who imagine themselves crowned beads. Merely pretending to be governor is a very harmless offense, and does not amount to treason under our laws. "Tho report that the authorities con templated arresting the defeated candi date for treason if he should take the oath of ofhee. and claim to be governor, is without auy foundation The state au- norities will deal only with overt acts, or resistance of the constituted authori ties. As long as the defeated candidate avoids such violations of law, he will bo left alone in his glory."' The state military, as usual on inau guration day, has been invited to be here, and the three regiments will be in attendance. This is a custom that has prevailed since Governor Houston's in auguration, and there will doubtless be as full a turnout as usual. Tiie inaugura tion ball is liable to attract all tho sol dier boys in the state, to say nothing of their admiration for his empty sleeve. The troops will not be here specially to keep Kolii or any of his followers from doing anything foolish. WILL GIVE THANKS LATER. l ootbn.il Too M in Grh li for . Iiuroii Aiembers 1 Itapiiltt, Mieli.

Jud Nicholson, who was arrested iu September with Guy Pier mid young Stenman for breaking iuto ff anliebi's drug store and stealing- some whisky, is still in the county jail. Nicholson's case is a well defined repe tition of the story that used to re in the tirst readers about old do Tray. He was a good sort of a fellow. uu follows go, but he allowed himself to bo led, and tiie string he followed was a direct route to disgrace. To sum it all up he got into bad com pany. ' Wniskev had not a littl to do with it, too, and Nicholson is willing now to admit that he hs made a big mistake. At his prc-iiiuim.ry examination he was hound ovnr to the district court in the sum of ,'00. The bond has been i. tiered him several times by his former friends, but he has refused to accept it. "1 had ra'lier stay here than go out on thestieei uud bo frowned on by my former friends,'' he says. lie will not make a tight at lift trial when it comes up, but will plead guilty, and ask the court the privilege of saying something in extenuation or explanation of his crime before sentence is pro nounced.

Nicholson spoke feelingly of bis mother and sister and regretted mom for their wakes than for anything c-iso that he had allowed himself to bo led info bad doing. "There's where it hurts," he sal I.
