BATTLESHIPS DEPART
FROM SANTA BARBARA
It Was a Lonesome Five Days Period For
Enlisted Men -
The Port Where Their Jloputat ion for tiooil Jiehavior

Santa Barbara. "al.. April 29. After-,
a slay of five days at this port, the
Atlantic fleet of battleships will sail !
tomorrow niornins at 6 o'clock for
Monterey, the next scheduled stopping !
place in the l"nB itinerary. The dance '
of flowers tonight in lienor of the of
ficers ot the fleet, in which forty
young women of Santa Barbara's so
ciety tool; part, was the closing fca- '
ture of the entertainment here. The ;
dance whs siven in the Plaza Del ;
Mar. where a large t'-nt had been
erected. ' j
The visit to Santa liarbara has been I
replete with social functions in honor j
of the officers. The spectacular flower
paiatlo on .Monday last eclipsed any-
thuiK seen in the entire cruise from
Hampton Roads. But the stay ol the I
enlisted nyn here has not been an ;
entirely happy one. There was no
special entertainment for them, and j
they were allowed to go their ways I
ithout official attention of any soru i
Some of tlic residents of Santa Har-
lara today endeavored to arrange a
baibecue in honor of the enlisted men
but the time intervening being too
short.
Admiral Thomas and the members
of his staff are working tinder high
pressure aboard the flagship formu
lating final plans for the fltet's en
trance into San Francisco. The ad
miral and most of the officers are also
busy with innumerable social affairs
ashore, which occupy their attention
both niRht and day. All the lntirven-
ing time, far into the early morning j
hours eaeh day, is taken up with offi
cial la"vr j
Admiral Thomas today issued orders j
to I.irup nant Commander Cone, com-
mandiiiu tin si-cond t':r;do flotilla. :
now at San 1 iej;o. in .it --. -. to San
IVdro and spend as much time there J
as possible, allowing a sufficient in- ;
terval for the flotilla to reach Santa j
Cruz and join the fleet n the morn-j
ins of May 4th. official orders were
al-o sei.t the . t today which will )
be of interest to the health authorities ;
.f San Krami.uo. The order directed j
that after the ships reach anchorage I
in San Francisco Hay no garbage or
refuse of any sort shall be thrown'
overboard which ii.ifjht be washed!
ashore to furnish food for wharf rats. .
'fhe Kansas todav was placed under'
partial quarantine by the medical an-I
thorities aboard on account of a sup-I
posed case of spinal meningitis which j
developed aboard. An ordinary sea-(
ni;.n named Wilson was stricken yes- j
terday wiih a malady the symptoms!
of which resembled meningitis, and the
aul !if' rities deemed it w i.-e to estab- '
lish a quarantine. Visitors wire bar
red from the ship today in conse
quence. Kriends and relatives of th
officers who came aboard were re
stricted to the officers' quarters.
Admiral Thomas today received a
committee of women from San Fran
cisco, headed by .Mrs. Arthur N. Corn
wall. The committee is in charge of
ar'-anemonts for a ,a!l which is to
be given to the bluejackets in San
Francisco. C appointment they met
while on the Connecticut a represen
tative of the enlisted men from each
ship. The admiral received tljjk com
mittee In his cabin and assured them
of the co-operation of the commanding
officer in furthering their plans for
the function. The committee promised
that L'.ooO young ladies of San Fran
clseo and Oakland would be in attend
ance to make it pleasant for the sail
ors. The hall in which the hall will
be held will accommodate 2.0110 cou
ples on the floor, according to the
committee.
Captain Crant. chief of staff, dis
cussed at length the plans for enter
ing and anchoring in San Francisco
Bay. Jn reply to the criticisms of the
local authorities of San Francisco of
th pians. Captain Grant stated that
the whole program was outlined hy
the secretary of the navy and the
fleet had but to obey the orders given.
Admiral Thomas' part of the program
extended only as far as designating
the ships which shall occupy each par
ticular berth.
It will be necessary he stated to
maintain a clear path of considerable
width from the entrance to the bay
to Hunters' IVirt to allow for the safe
passage ( f th fleet, it is always pos
sible that some plight accident may
o er'ilKC :: s'-ip. ...itffUo.tf '-
sel to steer out of line to avoid 1 col
lision. Plenty of room on each side
must be allowed for such a contingen
cy. Plans for the anchorage of the
Paci'ic fleet near Angel Island, de-i-fsed
in Va.hin&i.n. are thought to
be. the best that the conditions pro
vided for tile purpose of allowing the
ships o" that licet to fall into line as
tin- Atlantic fleet steamed in. The
Xebr;..-ka and Wisconsin are to join
th Atlantic fleet at the San Francisco
lightship o:i the evening of May rilh
and proceed the following morning
with the divisions to which they have
be n assigned, the Nebraska to the
second and the Wisconsin to the
fourth. A long sweep to the south
ward of Hunter's Point before turning
north to the final anchorage is neces
sitated. Captain Grant stated, by the
strong incoming tide at the hour the
ships will anchor. It will be impossi
ble to bring the ships to anchor in
the ici ination planned in any other
way. The distance from the turn at
Hunters' Point to the place of anchor
age, which is about two miles, will al
low all the ships to get into proper
position for letting go their anchors.
Tile ships will first drop anchors to
hold against the tide, and then the
starboard anchors, to make the final
mooring -
An incident last night, in which a
small restaurant, was partially demol
ished y' indignant sailors, was not
officially reported to the flagship up
to ablate hour this afternoon. It is
not known whether Admiral Thomas
will take any steps in the matter, al
though he deprecates very greatly
that anything of the kind should have
occurred to mar the excellent reputa
tion of the men for good conduct
ashore. There is no outward disposi
tion, however, on the part of ven the
citizens of Santa Barbara to blajne
the blue jackets for their drastic re
taliation for the alleged ill treatment
of them. No further trouble is looked
for
Today vendors on the wharf before
which the fleet anchored were busy
selling hits of broken glass from the
damaged building as souvenirs of the
occasion. Twenty-five cents was ask
ed for the mementoes, but there was
not a brisk demand for them.

licenses In Alaska. The purpose of
the bill is to break up what is known
as "perambulating saloons' in that

Washington. April 2i. John Sharr
Williams today gave the republican
majority of the house an opportunity
either to permit or refuse to permit
a vote on the Stevens bill to place
wood pulp on the free list. In the
course of a cleverly humorous and sa
tirical speec h, he unrolled and held to
view the following petition to Speaker
Cannon bearing the signatures of 164
of the 166 democratic members: "We!
the undersigned representatives in con-!
gress, request, each for himself andi
each for each other, that you recognize
one of us, or if you prefer, some other
representative, to move the discharge
of the committee on ways and means
from its further consideration, suspend
the rules and pass the Stevens bill or
any other bill having the effect of put
ting wood pulp and print paper on the
free list."
Mr. Williams said that the two dem
ocratic members whose names vera
not appended to the position were out
of town, but efforts were being made
to reach them by wire. When these
signatures were added he said only 30
republican names will be needed to
swell the strength of the petition to the
proportions of a majority request,
which Mr. Williams said with good na
tured sarcasm, he felt sure the speaker
would heed.
A table had been placed on the floor
in front of the stenographer's bench,
and on it the petition was spread with
flanking of ink bottle and pen. The
minority leader, simulating the voice
and manner of a revivalist, exhorted
the republicans to rise, go forward and
sign up. pleading for "thirty, only
thirty." and asked ;'are there not thirty
who would come forth?"
He concluded amid handeiapping and!
laughter, indulged in by democrats and

THE HOUSE.
Washington. April 29. The sundry
civil appropriation bills was under con
sideration in the .house today. The
greater part of the time was consumed
by a general debate under the five
minute rule, whi h w ill be resumed to
morrow. V
Mr. Fowler of New Jersey denounced
the Aldrich currency bill and pleaded
for the passage of his bill to create
a currency commission. Mr. Dalzell of,
Pennsylvania, offered an amendment
to the sundry civil bill appropriating
$60,000 for the establishment of a na-!
tional art gallery in the Smithsonian!
Institution. The amendment was re j
jected on a point or order.' The house
disagreed to the senate amendment to
I
the naval appropriation bill and the bill
was sent to conference.
AGREEMENT ON ARMY BILL.
Washington, April 29. The senate
and house conferees on the army bill
reached. an agreement tonight. The
senate conferees receded from the
amendment raising the pay of officers
on a percentage basis. Instead a
schedule was adopted increasing the
pay of major generals, brigadier gen
erals, colonels, lieutenant colonels, ma
jors and first lieutenants, $500 per an
num; captains $600 per year: second
lieutenants $J0o. cadets $100. On this
