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.
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.
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
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.
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
guests, and also a band from the navy
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
Before the president left here this

Argentine Finances.
London, April 28.—The Standard's
Buenos Ayres correspondent says: Pres
ident Pelligrini states that tbe Argentine
government has decided to issue notes
against the reserve silver, to be legal
tender at par value for all obligations in
the future, but not to effect debts in
curred before their issue. A law will
be passed declaring contracts not made
in legal currency, invalid. Thus it will
be impossible for creditors legally to re
cover gold. The government found it
impossible to obtain sufficient gold for a
gold basis. The banks gave official no
tice of their inability to control the gold

It is Said to Be an Enlightened
Delicate Questions Handled in a Mas

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
Imposing Ceremonies Over Yon Moltke's
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. Emperor
William, the King of Saxony, the grand
dukes of Baden, Saxe-Weimar and
Hesse, the principal members of the
royal family of Germany, together with
the leading German generals, were pres
ent. 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. Along
the route of the procession to the rail
road station the hearse waß preceded by
Colonel Gossler, carrying Count Yon
Moltke's field marshal's baton, and by
all the officers of the general staff, car
rying the insignia and orders conferred
on Count Yon Moltke during the course
of his distinguished career. The casket
was covered with large numbers of
floral wreaths, sent from all parts of
Germany and from many parts of
Europe. Emperor William, the mem
bers of the royal families of Germany
and the German generals followed the
hearse to tbe railroad station.
During the ceremony in the general
stall' building, the emperor was moved
to tears.
Bismarck sent an immense wreath
and the following telegram: With pro
found sorrow I received the telegram
announcing the irreparable loss sus
tained by the fatherland. I feel the
loss more acutely, owing to the fact that
it had been vouchsafed to me to enjoy
for several decades Yon Moltke's glori
ous co-operation and the invariable
amiability he displayed in our close,
friendly relations.
The Ninth National of New York Has a
•400.000 Shortage.
New York, April 28.—Rumors were
current late this afternoon that tbe
Ninth National bank was in trouble.
An investigation showed that Bank
Commissioner Hepburn and a clearing
house committee were making an inves
tigation. Tonight Hepburn made a
statement to the press to the effect that
the investigation reveals a shortage of
$400,000, chargable to the former presi
dent of the bank. While the ioss is se
rious, it does not impair the bank's
solvency nor its ability to take care of
its customers. The assets, besides the
loss mentioned, are of a good character.
"The bank," added Mr. Hepbum,"has
heen unfortunate, but it is perfectly
sound and entitled to the support of tbe
depositors and public."
The clearing house committee issued
a statement of similar purport, endors
ing the solvency of the bank. The late
president referred to was John S. Hill,
who died March last of consumption.
It was only a few days ago that anything
wrong was discovered.

before news was receiyed of the attitude
of the Chinese government towards

Indian commissioners had ordered the
removal of intruders from the nation.

Plenty-Horse's Case.
Sioux Falls, S. 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. The
court denied that the Indians bad a
right to go to war, and affirmed that
they were not separate but upon the
same level as Americans, subject to the
laws made by congress. The defense
d>voted the day to the presentation of
evidence based on their theory.

Olsen's Bloody Pants.
Merced, April 28.—1n the Olsen case
today William Olsen testified that the
bloody pants and overalls both belonged
to him, not August. He used the pants
to mark cattle and got blood on them.
The overalls he wore to the mountains
and killed squirrels, grouse, sheep and
quail. He got blood on them from all.
He cut his hand and wiped it on the
overalls. He had a fight in Yosemite
and got blood on his clothes then. This
would explain how the blood came on,
but Dr. Sherman, the expert, testifies
that nothing but human blood is on

Facetious Customer to Clerk—l see you advertise all kinds of coats.
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."
