ADMISSION DAY.
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

"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.

AT SAN FRANCISCO.
The Celebration of Admission Day Auspi
ciously Begun.
San Fbancisco, Sept. 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.

TUESJJAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER !), 1890.
THE TARIFF DEBATE.
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.

ernor Kent.

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."
It is understood that the detectives

MORE SMASHUPS.
Several Fatal Collisions on Eastern
Railroads.
Lockport, N. V., Sept. 8. —This morn
ing two North Shore limited trains col
lided, head on, with terrific force in this
city. The engines were badly wrecked,
and the tenders driven into the buffet
cars next them. Baggageman W. A.
Fiedler was killed. Two other train
men were seriously hurt. The passen
gers were badly skaken up, but none
were wounded.
Wheeling, W. Va., Sept. B.—This

A SUDDEN RESIGNATION.
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"
