The State's Birthday Fitly Celebrated. Last Evening's Exercises at the Pavilion. The Hall Crowded With a Patriotic Concourse. Brilliant Decorations and. Pretty Girls in Gorgeous Tableaux—A Spark ling Programme. Fully two thousand people assembled j at Hazard's pavilion last night to wit-! ness the first of the public entertain- j ments which have been arranged for the observance of Admission Day in this City. The interior of the vast building had been handsomely and appropriately decorated for the occasion, with tri colored bunting and tlie national colors, which had been arranged with a good deal of artistic taste, and savored little of the vulgar profusion of the usual Fourth of July celebration. The programme, which was of a mili tary and patriotic character, contained many features of interest, and although one or two of the numbers were prolong ed more than appeared to be necessary, notably the military manoevers of "Liberty's color guard," it was on the whole very well received. The proceedings commenced at 8 o'clock by a selection from "Faust," which was admirably rendered by the | Ninth Regiment band of Pomona. The curtain then rose, and "Colum bia's Chickens," the thirteen original colonies, were revealed, represented by the following little girls, headed by little Ethel Baldwin: Florence John son, Ruby Brown, Pearl King, Emma Daily, Pearl White, Rena Stomba, Sadie Stomba, Gracie Case, Annie Sie vert, Daisy Waller, Ada (iriswold, Laura Griswold. The children, all of whom wore white costumes and carried the stars and stripes, went through a number of mili tary movements and sang an appropri ate" song to the tune of "Yankee Doodle" | very creditably, their little leader assist ing" them wonderfully by her perfect composure and steady pace. A double quartette by the f) lowing male members of the Ellis club followed, and was vociferously encored: F. E. Nay, J. P. Dupuv, Jas. Booth, Ed Aver ill, A. B. Whitney, F. W. Wallace, B. W. Paulsen, P. A. Fenimore. When the curtain again rose, the j stage presented a charming tableau of j the Goddess of Liberty surrounded by j the thirteen original states. This was followed by a scene representing the ad mission of the other states to tha charmed circle, each new comer being received into the Union with cheers. The forty four young ladies, each of whom wore a shield de noting the state she represented, then formed in line, and under the command of Lieut. E. J. Thorne of Co. F, Ist Regt. of the National Guard, passed in review before the audience, forming the letters U. S. A. successively inlthe grand march. After a triumphal march around "Liberty's" throne, the com pany was drawn up in four parallee lines, and each state stepped to the front in rotation and pressntedits merits in a brief address. California being the home state, recited an admirable poem written for tha occasion by Mrs. Eliza A. Otis, which met with marked appro bation. Those who participated were as follows: (ioddess of Liberty, Miss Minnie G. Sullivan. Miss Hattie Longstreet, Maine; Miss Mamie Graves, New Hamp shire; Miss Daisy Maxwell, Vermont; Miss Utie Chaffin, Massachusetts; Miss Katie Kronmck, Connecticut; Miss Lily Buckingham, Rhode Island ; MissChris tena Clark, New York; Miss Jessie Hudspeth, New Jersey; Miss Pearl Weller, Pennsylvania; Miss Clara Ben nett, Delaware; Miss Mamie Bennett, Maryland; Miss Florence Pierson, Vir ginia; Miss Susie Elliott, West Virginia; Miss Lillian Freebey, North Carolina; Miss Lottie Bowman, South Carolina; Miss Lucy French, Georgia; Miss Carrie A.

"The star spangled banner" was ad mirably rendered by Mrs. W. E. Beeson, who waa, assisted by a chorus of sixty voices led by the band, Jand an ncore was insisted Jupon. After more mili tary tactics and a musical selection by the laid, littl; Hazel Baldwin gave a remarkable personation of "the old veteran," which she recited in a manner which fairly brought down the house. The programme then closed with a grand march and Hag drill by forty-four young ladies, conteituting "Liberty's Color Guard." Martial music by the band. Through a misunderstanding on the part of the committee in charge, two numbers were omitted from the pro gramme, viz: recitations by the Misses Ethel Stewart and Eloise Lassen. This omission will, however, be remedied to night when the former will recite the "Whistling Regiment," and the latter "The Pride of Battery B." Tonight's programme, with the above additions, will be as follows: Martial music—Ninth Regiment band of Pomona.

B.—Final prepa rations have been made for the celebra tion of the fortieth anniversary of the admission of the state of California tomorrow. All day long the crowds on the streets had been increasing, and every incoming train has brought hun dreds of Native Sons and Daughters, pioneers and other visitors from every section of state. Delegations headed by bands of music have been parading the streets from the ferries to their quarters, and every indication is given that tomorrow's celebration will be one of the most successful ever seen in this part of the country. Flags and bunting of every description are all over the city, and in the business portion are the most elaborate decorations ever at tempted here. Bronze and stuffed griz zly bears are to be seen everywhere, and along the route of to-morrow's proces sion are scores of large paintings illus trating scenes and incidents connected with the early history of California. Next to the thousands of American flags which float in all parts of the city, one of the most conspicuous decorations is the old bear Hag of Cali fornia republic. Pioneer hall, Mechan ics pavilion, the Grand opera house and other places where the Native Sons and Daughters will meet, as well as head quarters of the general committee of ar rangements at tlie Baldwin hotel, have been most elaborately decorated. It is difficult to estimate the number of visi tors in the city tonight, but it is gener ally believed that the number is not far short of 100,000. Mechanics pavilion, which has been fitted up with reception booths by the various parlors, was opened to-day and great crowds of people have tilled the building. To-night a series of tableaux illustrating scenes in the history of Cali fornia, and the general progress and de velopment of the state, were given at the pavilion under the auspices of the Native Daughters. Musical selections were also rendered by a band of sixty pieces. The attendance was very large. The regatta today also attracted great numbers of spectators. The parade tomorrow morning, which ; will be the principal feature of the cele \ bration, will consist of twenty-one divis ions. The military portion of it will comprise twelve companies of regular troops and all four regiments of the second brigade of the California National Guard, besides a dozen or more local independent com panies. The principal floats, which are of the most interesting i and appropriate designs, will be the second division of the procession. The local and visiting Native Sons, com prising about 150 parlors, will form nine entire divisions. A great number of secret, social and benevolent orders and several industrial organizations will also take part in the procession. LOCOMOTIVE FIREMEN. They Will March in the Procession With the Native Sons. San Francisco, Sept. B.—The "biennial convention oi tlie Brotherhood of Loco motive Firemen met in this city today. The morning session was very brief, and an adjournment was taken until this afternoon, when a public reception was given the visiting liremen by the local members of the brotherhood. Addresses of welcome were made by Governor Waterman, Mayor Pond and M. A. Dorn, the latter on behalf of the Native Sons of the Golden West, who are now conducting a celebration of Admission day in this city. Grand Master Frank P. Sargent responded. In his address he gave a review of the work of the brotherhood, and said the order did not advocate strikes, and had always endeavored to avoid them, but when the occasion demanded, the brotherhood would wield the weapon which organized labor had provided for its membership. The visiting firemen will take part in the Admission day parade tomorrow. The President's Holldny. Cresson Springs, Pa., Sept. 8. —The president and party this morning took a long drive, visiting the villages of Loretto and Gallitzin. At Loretto is located a famous Catholic convent established'nearly a hundred years ago. The president inspected the old church attached to the convent, and Father P.yan gave a brief history of the place. The president intends to pay another visit to the place to look over the con vent. The party returned to Cresson in the afternoon, having enjoyed their ride greatly. San IHego Foam. San Diego, Cal., Sept.

Another Whirl at it Last Evening. The Senate in Session Till After Midnight. Allison Denies That Southern Inter ests are Slighted. The Reciprocity Amendment Discissed Pro and Con—The Election in tM Pine Tree State. Associated Press Dispatches. I Washington, Sept. 8. —At the evening session of the senate, Casey addressed the senate in favor of the reciprocity proposition. Allison replied to the remarks of Rea gan and Gorman, this afternoon, accus ing the finance committee and the Republican senators of discrimination against the south. He denied that there had been any such idea entertained. Wherein, he asked, has such discrimination been shown?' Cer- tainly not in the matter of rice.r Had the state of Texas been discriminated against at the present session? Had not $0,000,000 been appropriated for the purpose of transferring trade from the eastern seaboard to the most important gulf port of Texas? Does not the finance committee propose to protect the wool of Texas, the second wooVgrow ing state of the Union? He, himself, had undertaken to pro tect the hides of Texas. The senators from Maryland had said that thefls was not a line or page of the bill thajt pro tected an industry in the southern states. Where, Allison asked, was the coal of Maryland and West Virginia? Wasn't that protected? And where was the sugar of Louisiana and Texas ? Did not that have a bounty of two cents a pound? The oranges of Louisiana and Florida were better protected under the pending bill than the existing law. If there had been any discrimination it had been in favor of the south. As to cotton ties, they had simply followed other manufactures of iron and steel, and as to cotton bagging, it was as much used for the potatoes of New York and for the onions of California, as for the cotton crop of the south. As to the amendment offered by Manderson to admit beet su gar machinery free of duty up to July 9, he did not see why that small boon should not be allowed. It would do no harm to anybody and would certainly be no discrimination against the producers of sugar from cane or sorghum. He would therefore vote for it, and against Eustis's amendment to extend tne pri vilege to cane and sorghum sugar mach inery. Eustis's amendment was rejected without the yeas and nays, and Man derson's was agreed to —yeas 42, nays 11. The negative votes were given by Butler, Cameron, Carlisle, Cockrell, Cook, Gorman, Gray, Hearst, Teller, Reagan and,: Wilson (Iowa). (iibson moved to reduce the sugar test from 80 degrees by the polariscope, to 70 degrees, and argued that two cents a pound bounty on sugar produced in the United States would be neutralized by a European bounty of two cents a pound on exported sugar, so there would really be free trade in sugar. Cullen addressed the senate in favor of reciprocity between the United States and other nations, especially Mexico and Central and South America. He was not, however, in favor, he said, of such a system of reciprocity as would in the slightest degree interfere with the policy of protection to American indus try, and labor, but it was a question in his mind whether it wouldn't be better to allow the whole question of recipro city to rest with the presi dent and secretary of state, who had constitutional pow ers to make treaties with foreign governments. As to reciprocity with Canada, he thought the attitude of the dominion government was not such as called for any speedy action looking to reciprocity. That government had pur sued in many ways and for many years a policy of aggression toward the United States, and in doing so, aided the Cana dian Pacific railway company, whose road had been built by and of government subsidies, not for com mercial, but for military and political purposes. He mentioned large subsidies by both the Dominion and British governments to steamship lines, intended to divert commerce from American ships and American railroad lines. He declared himself in favor of a national policy that would protect the interests of the United States against aggression from any foreign nation. He was a protectionist, not only in the sup port of the tariff bill, but he was for pro tecting American interests and national honor in dealing with all foreign nations. He referred to a remark of Lord Salis bury in an address to the London club some months ago, to the effect, speaking of the Beting sea difficulty, that the United States was such a susceptible nation that Great Britain could not negotiate with it. He regarded that remark as insulting toward the United States, and expressed the hope that the time had come when the difficulties with Great Britain and her dependencies would be settled honorably to the United States.in open day, and that Lord Salisbury would not be allowed to whisper the secrecary of state out of American rights. Reagan made remarks in support of his claim that the pending bill discriminat ed against the southern section of the country. Spooner declared himself in favor of reciprocity with Canada. He hoped to see the day when the American flag would float over Canada, and when the British, flag would be gone. Evarts, speaking on reciprocity, pro posed to modify the committee amend- I ment so as to make it the duty of the president, when satisfied that the coun try from which sugar, molasses, tea, cof fee or hides are imported, maintains a policy that is reciprocally unequal and unreasonable, to communicate the facts to congress, so duties may be imposed. Gray gave assent to this proposition. Without action on Gibson's Amend- I ment the Senate, at 12:15, ad journed. THE NEWS FROM MAINE. It Goes "Hell Bent" a*|ln the Days of Gov ernor Kent. Augusta. Maine, Sept. 8. —Chairman Manley, of the Republican state com mittee, sent at midnight the following dispatch to President Harrison: "Maine gives the largest Republican majority known in off year since 1800, and a larger majority than has been givenjin a presidental contest since 1808 with the single exceptions of 1884 and 1888.

TRAIN-WRECKERS. Another Dastardly Crime Attempted. Obstructions Placed on the New York Central Track. A Crowded Express Train Narrowly Escapes Derailment. A Great Disaster Averted By a Flag- Man's Bravery—Suspected Knights Arrested. Associated Press Dispatches. Pocgiikeepsie, N. V., Sept. 8. —A des perate attempt was made tonight to wreck the fast St. Louis and Chicago express, which leaves New York on the New York Central at op. m. The train was stopped by a danger signal south of Old Troy, 000 yards south of the New Hamburg drawbridge. Two minutes previous the fireman had discovered sev eral ties standing endways in a culvert, near old Troy ; when he took hold of one of them to remove it, he was fired upon from the bushes on the east side of the track. Knowing the fast express was nearly due, he ran southward and set a danger signal which stopped the train. The flagman said ties stuck up above the rails and would certainly have thrown the train from the track. The fast train was composed of seven or eight sleeping cars all full, two ordinary coaches and a baggage car. There were eight ties up on the main track. There were also two ties placed alongside the rail toward the south, so as to ditch the train. The train passed here half an hour later. ALLEGED TRAIN WRECKERS. More Arrests in Connection with the New- York Central Affair. Albany, Sept. 8. —The mystery at tending the apprehension of John Reed, who was detained all day yesterday, on suspicion of being one of the Central train wreckers, was partially explained this morning by the arrest of John Kiernan, a West Albany freight brake man, and John Cordial, a freight con ductor. Both are Knights of Labor. From words overheard by reporters dur fng Reed's cross questioning by Pinker tons, it is evident that they were arrested on information furnished by Reed. The latter has been very prominent in his hostility to the Pinkertons, and made threats against the road, so he was "spotted."

One of the Leading World's Fair Direc tors Resigns. Chicago, Sept. 8. —In a somewhat tart letter, Vice-President Bryan, of the local world's fair directory, resigned his office and directorship this evening. Bryan has taken a prominent part in the world's fair movement from the beginning, and his sudden resignation has caused some commotion. His letter is princi pally devoted to self-defense against charges that he got $10,000 to go to Geor gia and did not get the vote of a single congressman of Georgia for Chicago; that he sent his son to Sweden for infor mation that any consul could have fur nished, and that a gentleman who had been spoken of for director general, and who had been log rolling for the Jackson Park site, •got $10,000 for going to Paris for information already available in Chicago. Mr. Bryan enters a flat de nial of all these charges, and ascribes them to a state senator, resident in Chicago. FARWELL & CO. Sensational Reports About the Finn and the Senator. Chicago, Sept. 8. —Reports from the east were received on the Stock ex change today, saying rumors of the failure of the great drygoods firm of J. V. Farwell and company, of this city, were curient in the east. Tlie cause of the failure is being attributed to an alleged interest of the firm in the recent collapse of Potter, Lovell & Co., of Boston. J. V. Farwell, Jr., entered a most emphatic denial of the stories, which be characterized as a malicious falsehood. A sensational report tele graphed here from Waukesha, today, to the effect that Senator Farwel" most at the point of death, wat nied, and it was stated that he i improving.
