He is Shown the Sights of San Francisco Harbor. A Grand Marine Pageant Witnessed by Many Thousands. The Monterey Successfully Launched. Mrs. Harrison Pressed the Button. Events of the Day. Associated Press Dispatches. San Francisco, April 28. —The morn ing of President Harrison's marine ex cursion opened with a fog enveloping the shores of the bay, but as the fore noon wore on the fog lifted and left the harbor sparkling in sunlight. Along the water front the numerous decorations which had been placed on the houses and shipping on the day of the presi dent's arrival here, were retouched and augmented, and many vessels not pre viously decorated, had strings of flags fluttering in the wind. The yacht olubs of San Francisco, Saucelito, Tiburon and neighboring towns had also decorated their boat houses and vessels, which did much to enliven the scene in the vicin ity of the Golden Gate. Out in the stream, the cruiser Charleston was re splendent in a new dress, and was one of the most conspicuous objects in the bay. The steamer City of Puebla, which was to convey the president's party on the excursion, the steamer Ha v tien and other large ves sels, were also decorated from stem to stern. Notwithstanding the announce ment that the invitations to accompany tbe president on the Puebla were limited to five hundred, the committee having charge of the excursion, was besieged with applications from fully five thou sand persons, who, being unable to secure the coveted billets, crowded the steamers Ukiah and Garden City, the tugs Relief, Ethel and Marion, and numerous small craft) which dotted the bay, so that at the hour of the presi dent's embarkation, over ten thousand persons had left the shore to accompany him on the trip. A MAHATIMK PAGEANT. At 10:30 o'clock the Puebla steamed out into the bay from Broadway wharf, and was soon followed by the warship Charleston, the government steamers Rush and Madrono, carrying federal officials, and the revenue cutters Haesler and Corwift, with the customs house officials. As the Puebla passed these vessels, which bad formed a )»"« about three hundred yards apart, a salute was fired, and the band which had been Sta tioned on the Puebla played a patriotic air. After the government vessels had swung into line the other steamers and craft conveying the unofficial excursion ists made haste to follow, and with the white sails of yachts skimming, the pageant from a marine point of view had never been excelled on the bay of San Francisco. The route followed by the Puebla extended from Broadway wharf along the northwest line of the city front to Fort Point, west to the whist ling buoy, stopping to view the forts and military sites, which greeted the president with a salute of cannon as the vessels passed. AFRAID OF ROUGH WATER. During the whole time that the Puebla was steaming down the bay, the presi dent stood on the bridge, having a pair of marine glasses, through which he scanned various objects of interest which were pointed out to him. He was con stantly surrounded by a group of army and navy officers, and apparently found great enjoyment in the trip. He re sponded to the salutes of the different vessels he passed, by removing his hat and bowing. The original intention was to pass through tbe Golden Gate and steam nine miles out to sea, but when the Puebla reached the heads a strong breeze was blowing and the sea was rough. Accordingly, at .the president's request, the steamer turned around and returned to Smooth water in the vicinity of Saucelito and Angel island, where an hour or two was spent in cruising around, and in the meantime lunch was served. A MARINE PROCESSION. About 2 o'clock the Puebla headed for the Union iron works. Tbe vessels which bad been lying in the stream waiting for her, got under way and fol lowed in her wake, making a marine procession several miles in length. At the Union iron works the Puebla was received with the blowing of whistles at the factory and on all the steam vessels lying there. The cruiser Charleston, which had followed the president's steamer all day. anchored a short dis tance from the Puebla. The president was taken off in a tug, and paid an offi cial visit, being received with a national salute when he boarded tbe vessel, and also when he took his departure. THE LAUNCH OF THE MONTEREY, By this time the bay for a mile in every direction from the Union iron works was studded with vessels of -every description, upon whose decks there were fully 20,000 people who had come there to witness the launching of the armored coast defense vessel Mon terey. In addition to those on the ves sels, there were probably 40,000 people who witnessed tbe launching from the shore. Every housetop and street and every hillside overlooking the iron works yards, as well as the yard itself, was literally covered with people. Never was there such interest taken or such enthusiasm displayed at any similar event in this part of the country. On the shore and on the bay there was a perfect sea of flags and bunting, and for sometime before the launching oc curred, there was a continuous screech ing of steam whistles, to which was added tbe music of a score of bands on the excursion steamers. A small plat form had been built around the bow of the vessel, and on this were the presi dential party and the distinguished LOS ANGELES HERALD. guests, and also a band from the navy yard. MBS. HARBISON PR EBB ED THE BUTTON. At 4:30 Mrs. Harrison-pressed the electric button, which sent the vessel down the ways. The yard band played a national air, the ship glided into the water, and immediately there burst forth the greatest noise from steam whistles and fog sirens ever heard iv that locality, to which was added tbe thundering sound of the Charleston's guns as she fired a national salute. Cheer after cheer also arose from the shore and from the decks of the vessels. The launch was entirely successful. The Monterey glided into" the bay and struck on the soft mud in front of the ways. The president and party then returned to the Palace hotel in car riages. THB I'REACHBBS RECEIVED. Before the president left here this morning, he held a reception at the Palace hotel, which was attended by over one hundred Clergymen of all the denominations of I this city and Oak land. WAN AM A X Kit INSPECTS THK POSTOFFICE.

WEDNESDAY MORNING, APRIL 29, 1891.—TEN PAGES. THE POPE'S LETTER. Leo's Encyclical on the So cial Question. It is Said to Be an Enlightened Document. Delicate Questions Handled in a Mas terly Manner. Hia Holiness Believes American Democ racy Will Be the Model for Future European Government. Associated Press Dispatches. Rome, April 28.—A prominent digni tary of the Catholic church, talking with rep resentative of the Associated Press concerning the forthcoming encyclical letter of the pope on the social question, said the pope has condensed the doc trines of the greatest theologists on these matters, and adapted them to the requirements and conditions of the pres ent epoch. He has also brought into requisition the leading intellects of the United States and Europe. He insists, with equity on the rights and duties of capital, of labor, of the state and of the individual. He is neither for nor against any interest or school. He greatly de plores any division in the Catholic party, tending, as they do, to diminish the social influence and the moral action of the church. "Theencyclical," said the dignitary, "will make a considerable impression, for it is an enlightened work, aiming solely at unity and conciliation. It will not be a cry of protest against all the elements which form modern life.' lie seeks to conciliate them all by the ac ceptance of all legitimate interests, and by the reciprocal respect of all rights. A delicate matter is in regard to state intervention. It is incontestable that tbe church cannot give upon these fiurely historical contingencies abso utely perfect instructions. Social prob lems are continually changing and mod ifying. Things that are good and equitable today are old and inapplicable tomorrow. Therefore the pope will be found, from a doctrinal point of view, somewhat re served on this matter. Nevertheless he demands relative intervention, changing according to places and cir cumsttinces, whenever justice, legiti mate interests and disregarded rights require it. Thus, for our particular epoch, the pope exacts state interven tion in favor of fixing the maximum number of hours of tbe workday; of the day of rest; of tbe minimum wages; regulating the work of women and children, and matters regarding hygiene uua Uio <-onditk>n« under which work is performed in factories." "Leo," said the speaker, "strikes a 1 normal equilibrium, the true note.while he carefully avoids prejudicing in any way such social problems as may arise later on. The supreme inspiration of the document is to put Ca tholicism doctrinally and intellectually at the head of the social movement. Leo is convinced that the democracy of America, imported under other forms, will be the mould by which the future society and politics »f Europe will be fashioned." THE FIELD MARSHAL'S FUNERAL. Imposing Ceremonies Over Yon Moltke's Remains. Berlin, April 28.—The funeral ser vices over the remains of Field Marshal Count Yon Moltke took place at 11 o'clock this morning in the ball room of the general staff building.

The services lasted forty-five min utes. The casket containing the field marshal's remains was then carried with much ceremony to the hearse, which was drawn by six horses. After passing through the streets, lined with troops and packed with spectators, the remains arrived at Lehrte station at 1 o'clock in the afternoon, and were placed on a railroad car draped in black.

D., April 28. —Judges Shires and Edgerton ,in the United States court, rendered a decision on the ques tion raised by the defense in Plenty- Horse's case, disputing the jurisdiction of that coart - because war existed be tween the government and some Indians when Lieutenant Casey was killed.

Have you any coats of arms ? Clerk —Well, I should say so. Did you ever see any coats without arms? Talking about customers, let us tell you a small joke. A lady wished to purchase a suit for her husband. Said our salesman: "What size does your husband wear, Madam ?" "I don't know exactly," replied she, "but he wears a i6}4 collar." But to come to the point, as the stump speaker says, we would like to tell you what prompted us to write this advertisement. It was the conversa tion of an eastern lady who purchased two boys' suits of us this morning. Said she: "Why, I am really surprised to find such beautiful styles! Why, they are just as nice as any store in Chicago keeps." That she purchased two suits goes to prove our prices were right. Said another lady one day last week, on in quiring the price of a large, fine braided, child's black sailor hat: "Now, don't ask me too much." " One dollar and fifty cents," said the salesman, " and that is a low price, for we buy them direct from the factory." "Well, I'll take one," replied the lady, " and now that I have bought it, I'll tell you that I have been asked two dollars and fifty cents for the same hat elsewhere."
