THE DEATH OF CHIEF. The Buddhist Who Was Cre mated Here. Career of Byron Adonis, the Human Enigma. A Man of Great Learning of Whom Little Is Known—He Was a Mystic and a Disappointed Lover—His San Francisco Record. The Herald of Saturday exclusively published the account of the first Bud hist cremation which was ever cele brated" on this continent. The occasion was the incineration of the body of Byron Adonis, a San Francisco mystic, of whom the Examiner gives the follow ing account: "Chief," who died in this city Monday last, at 644 Sacramento street, was a Tennessean by birth. His father was a Jew and his mother a Christian. In a worldly way he was known as Byron Adonis, and no other than that evidently fanciful cognomen could ever be drawn from him, even when in his intensest moods and pleading for the whole heart of Miss Marian Bruce, to whose graces he succumbed after a life of raillery at womankind'and scoffing at virtue. He lived an enigma. Who he was, what he was and from whence he came may never be known definitely, but he has left real mourners, who respected his ability, admired his modesty and liked his friendliness of heart. A FREE THOUGHT PAPER. Being abstemious and economical, he saved a sum of money, with which in 1879 he began the publication of The Free Thinker. Before that time he had hinted to in timates that in his travels through In dia and Polynesia he had learned the secret of a new life transcendentally attractive, and had in some far country been initiated into an order of "Chiefs and Chiefesses," the members of which enjoyed supernal delights and were made superior beings by the teachings of the mystic founders of tbe order. Buddhism in its most extravagantly etherealized form was often a theme en larged upon by Byron Adonis, and he firmly believed that it would become the universal faitb. Adonis styled himself "Chief," and used that title as his signature up to the day of his death. That he did some proselyting is evident from his worde in April, 1879, when in writing of The No ble Order of Chiefs he said : Among its members are a number of capitalists, bankers, lawyers, physi cians, journalists, merchants, one fire conmiesioner and one supervisor. No person can become a member until he has passed what is known as the intel lectual degree, that is he must be highly educated, a seductive conversationalist and a man of the world. The next is the Croesus degree, which means that the candidate must have a solid bank account and draw upon it generously. The third is known as Dead Ashes degree, which means that everything in this world dissolves into ashes, and hence the necessity of enjoying life every moment, since no man knows how soon he will be ashes. The chiefs of this secret organization believe in honor and in condncting themselves spotlessly in every affair in life save and except affairs of love. They have no morality, and some go so far as to say that morality cannot exist, since it is the outgrowth of cor ruptible matter. The chiefs are epicures, believe in living like lords and reveling ■with the wildest license. They admit women into their orgies, and divide them into two classes. We learn that young and beautiful girls of the highest culture have been initiated as chief esses. It was upon such vagaries that Byron Adonis fed and fattened into a scoffer at everything commonly he'd sacred or as worthy of reverence. In his Free Thinker, of which he was editor-in-chief, he had scope for all his fads, and ran riot through tbe institu tions of society, professing to find no good in them and an infinity of corrup tion in their promoters. Adoniß was a voluminous writer. He rattled away at epeed upon all subjects st all germane to mysticism of the Asiatic sort, and persistently preached the foolishness of faith and ttie delights of inanity. His fondness for Jewish eociety continued, and he founded the Jewish Times as an organ of the faith. Adonis wrote nearly all of every issue lor months, but he covertly jeered at certain canons of Jewish faith, and the rabbis began an inquiry into the ante cedents of the editor. When, to prevent further scandal, Rabbi Aleyer S. Levy offered to buy the Jewish Times, Adonis closed with the offer, and allied himself with The Uni verHe, in which he could give untram rneled expression to his fancies. He lived quite within himself until in 1884 he chanced to meet Miss Marian Bruce, a daughter of letired sea Captain Bruce, who lived on Jersey street, near Castro, in the Mission. That meeting quite changed the tenor of "Chief's" life. He became an assiduous suitor and won the regard of the lady. The engagement continued through four years and Adonis was not yet ready to marry. Then MisH Bruce dismissed him and he went unwillingly back to his attic den and to renewed bitterness against civilized habits i'nd social laws. Hi j friends were cut off until he had but two, a cigar dealer who sold him tobacco and a hatter. With them he would chut a little while every evening, but no one was ever invited to his room,and he wai for the most part absorbed in his work on The Universe and in deeper meditations upon Buddhism. His room at Gl4 Sacramento street was small and plainly furnished. A bed, a wardrobe, a little dressing bu reau, a lounge and a commode nearly filled the space. On the walls were a lew cheap prints of ilowers and pretty faces. On the ledge before the only window a few geraniums and plants in pots were kept green by his care. Half burned out concob pipes were lying about, and the floor was littered with boots, books and old papers. Having no bookcase, his scant library had to be put upon the floor. In such a place Adonis spent the nights and nearly all of his waking hours, and it was there that he was seized by illneßS on Friday of last week. He had always stolen into and out of the house like a ghost, and was neither seen nor known by any of the other lodgerp, and only slightly by the land lady, to whom he punctually paid his small rent. To her he would speak of great works in progress, and of impor tant measures which engaged his atten tion, bnt he never told her much. Ho complained of weakness on Friday and grew worse. Dr. Martineau was called in and prescribed, and tho patient did not rally. His vitality was slight and he felt that he could not live. On Sunday he Bent for Joseph D. Case, brother-in-law of Miss Bruce, and when Case came Adonis asked him to stand by the end and Bee that the few requests made in a will were carried out. Case gave his promise, and left the Buddhist dreamer to sink easily into his long sleep. Adonis grew weaker all day Sunday, and on Monday morning last at 9 o'clock died, having beside him at tbe last moment the pic ture of Saga, a chief of Polynesia, to whom he was attached, and the book, Ben-Beor, a etory of the anti-Messiah, by Bien. A will was found, in which be asked that his friends be told of his "change of residence," and directed that bis body be burned and the ashes scattered broadcast. Everything of which he died possessed was bequeathed to Miss Marian Bruce. Adonis left a few hundred dollars, dis tributed in the French bank, the Ger man bank, and the People's Saving bank. His savings and his books and manuEcripts will pass to the care of Miss Bruce. A GOOD PLAN. SANTA MONICA FOB THI ARMY RIFLE COMPETITION CAMP. It Ha* Heretofore Been Held at Arizona Posts—Ad vantages of Santa Monica. The Good Result. There iB a movement on foot among the leading citizens of Santa Monica and the commanding officers of the National gnard of the Third brigade to secure the United States regular army rifle com petition for Santa Monica in August. The encampment was held last year at Fort Bayard, Arizona, where the ther mometer crawls up into the sky for the greater portion of the year, and it is thought that it would be a pleasant change to bring the contestants down to the sea level for this year. The officers of the National guard are especially anx ious to have the regular army encamp ment of the department of Arizona at Santa Monica at the same time that the Third brigade is in camp, deeming that the association with the regulars would be of inestimable benefit to the citizen soldiery. They will ask Governor Mark ham and Senators Stanford, Felton and ./ones to use their kindly offices in plac ing the matter before the war depart ment. The regular rifle camp this year will consist of seventy-five officers and men from the Eleventh infantry, the Tenth infantry and the First cavalry. The picked shots of the different regimental companies and the cavalry troops, will assemble at tbe encampment, and it would certainly be a splendid school oi instruction for the cit izen soldiers. The troops and regimental companies of the regu lars are now located at the posts at Apache, Bayard, Bowie, Grant, Hua chuca, Marcy, San Carlos, San Diego barracks, Stanton, Whipple and Win gate, and, taking the distances traveled, Santß Monida is nearly as accessible as Fort Bayard as regards transportation. The holding of a rifle camp at Santa Monica, or sea level, would also be of vast benefit to the regular marksmen. Their camps have been held at Fort Bayard and other Arizona points, and the contests have been at 4000 and 6000 i feet above the sea level and in a torrid atmosphere, with different conditions as to windage, etc. In case of foreign war and in the event of the regulars being concentrated at the cnast line, they would be confronted with a series of conditions and natural phenomena entirely at var iance with their school of practice for several years past. . . . Colonel Pritchard, manager of the Jones & Baker ranch at Santa Monica, has offered a superb camping ground, fitted with a superb rifle range. Lieutenant Collins, inspector of rifle practice.for the department, was seen by a Herald reporter and stated thatwbile tjanta Monica would be a very desirable place for the rifle camp, tbe question of making the change lay with the war de partment and he could not give any further information in the matter, until advices were received from headquar ters. CHURCH NOTES. Dr. Chichester Preaches on tbe Rellc lous Outlook—V. M. O. A. They Took the City, was the text of Dr. Chichester's eermon yesterday morning. He spoke most hopefully of the present religious outlook, and said that with divine assistance Los Angeleß can be now taken for (iod, even as old Jericho was captured by Joshua. The unification of the city's religious forces was especially dwelt upon. The onset upon Jericho was not that of a mob, but of a regular orderly organization, unit ing both the military and the ecclesi astical. And this is the church's para mount need today—the need of united effort and general co-operation. Stone wall Jackson with only 13,000 men de feated four armies with an aggregate force of 04,000 in about a month, and his generalship showed itself in strik ing hie enemy when separated. Had the union armies in the Shenandoah valley been massed, Jackson would have been helpless before them. And if victory is to come to the church's forces today, the}' mußt be massed. And this is perhaps the most hopeful feature of the evangelistic campaign under Mr. Mills. The thirty-eight churches, repre senting eight different denominations, are now taking the field —not as a great Christian mob, but as one organized army, which shall move as one man and strike as with one arm. Y. M. 0. A. MEETINGS. The Rev. J. W. Campbell, pastor ol the First Methodist Episcopal church of this city, addreeeed a large audience of men and boys In the auditorium of the Y. M. C. A. yesterday afternoon. He based his remarks on the forty second chapter of Genesis, and dwelt on many of the most noteworthy events in the life of Jacob. He likened the enchanted and the disinchanted sides of Jacob's life to the liveß of many cf the young and old men of today. The Bpeaker closed a most interesting and expressive address by appealing to men to follow the example of Jacob in his after life. The music, which is being made a specir.l feature of the meetings, was especially good, the song service being led by Mr. J. T. Newkirk. Mr. Hare sang his solo, Sometime we'll Under stand, with considerable expression, it being well suited to his sympathetic tenor voice. Mr. Beuder's aolo, There is a Land Mine Eye Hath Seen, was also excellently rendered, and the duet by Mrs. Bender and Mr. Hare was very impressive. After the meeting Evangelist B. Read gave an interesting talk on inquiry work in connection with the coming Milli meetings. THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, MAY 2, 1892. News of the Stage From San Francisco. The Success of Mansfield and Agnes Huntington. Mansfield's Wonderful Death Scene. Huntington a: Captalne Therese. Other Attractions Now Play ing at the Theaters. Special correspondence to the Hbbald. | San Francisco, April 29, 1892. — Richard Mansfield is in the second week of his successful engagement at the Baldwin. He began the week with Prince Karl, and is now playing A Paris ian Romance. His Prince Karl is a de lightful creation and merits the warmest praise. His German accent is delight ful, and bis comedy exquisite. His Baron Chevrial in A Parisianjßoniance is a masterpiece. The character is that of an old French roue, worn out by ex cesses but game to the last. His acting in this role is extremely artistic, every move he makes, every word he utters, shaded with the utmost nicety. His death scene is intensely dramatic. He is giving a supper party to a premiere danseuee, and is surrounded by friends and girls from the theater. Revelry reigns high, and the baron rises to pro pose a cynical toast. In the midst of it ue is siezed with paralysis, his glass shakes in his uplifted band and the champagne showers over the table like a fountain. Then he staggers up to the open window at the back, repels the danseuee who has advanced towards him, and falls dead. My feeble de scription can give no idea of the in tensity of the scene, which is rendered remarkable by the wonderful way in which it is represented. This character is the creation by which he first be came famous, and will ever remain one of his greatest impersonations. Mans field is unquestionably a great actor, and I anticipate his creating a furore in Los Angels*, •*# Agnes Huntington is presenting Cap tain Therese this week at tbe Grand opera house, and is scoring a fine suc cess If anything, she is better in this than in Paul Jones; but she is good in anything. In Captain Therese she is a woman who for a portion of the time is disguised as a young officer. She makes a regal looking woman and a splendid looking boy. She has a beautiful voice and knows how to use it. After seeing her one cannot wonder at the triumph she scored abroad, and she was certainly a most admirable representative of American womanhood and did this country of ours much credit. She is a good actress as well as a fine singer, and there is a vim and dash about her work which is extremely gratifying to her audiences. Her company do good work, particularly Hal.en Moatyn, Albert James and Effie Ohapuy. a » * Hal.en and 1 iart are in their last week at the California, ttus Williams is at the Bush-street, but as you have already seen him it is unnecessary for me to make any comment. Joseph Grismer and Phtebe Daviee, assisted by George Osbonrne. are giving their old success, Chispa, at the Alcazar. Phoebe Daviea ia delightful in the title role, and Mr. Grismer is excellent as Teke Stevens. George Osbourne's Indian Jack is one of the most notable character creations I have ever seen. He is the Digger Indian to perfection, and one cannot imagine a more flawless piece of work. Cavalleria Rusticana and the Rose of Auvergne are being given at tbe Tivoli in its usual commendable fashion. Stage Manager I. W. Norcross, jr., by the way, has left this house and gone east. a » » Next week's attractions in San Fran cisco will include Richard Mansfield in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde at tbe Bald win, Emma Juch with an augmented chorus and orchestra in a repertoire at the Grand opera house, Tbe Power of the Press at the California, James H. Wallick in The Bandit King at the Bush, Joseph Grismer and Phcebe Davis in Two Orphans at the Alcazar, and Trial by Jury and Cavalleria Rusticana at the Tivoli. »** Thursday morniDg John F. Thrum, editor and proprietor of the San Francis co Music and Drama, was arrested on a warrant charging him with libel by pub lishing last week an article supposed to reflect on Charles N. Steen and his so called spiritualistic convention at the Mechanic's pavilion April 17. He was immediately liberated on $1000 bonds. He could have had any namber of times that sum if it had been needed, for fiiends flocked to his aid the moment they beard of his arrest. The article was severe, but as it was only a straight story of what happened, Mr. Steen will find that he has not a leg to stand on. In fact, considering tbe circumstances of the case, it is generally thought that he got off very light in the Music and Drama. Anyway, Mr. Thrum will come out of it with flying colors. a * * Rosella la Faille, a young San Fran ciscan, made her first appearance in public on Friday evening of last week at the Bijou theater in the character oi Mary Stuart. She was supported by a company composed partly of amateuis Skookum Root Grows Stops Hair Falling On F'•**fl\ Hair, "aid fflc '«!

Lizzie Vigoureaux, authoress and actress, is to appear as Rosalind in As You Like It at the Grand Opera house May 11th, at a testimonial which has been tendered her by a number of her admirers. Richard Mansfield was called before the curtain five times after tbe death scene in A Parisian Romance last night. Kate Castleton has a home in Oak land, and will spend the summer there. Al Morrisey, a S*n Francisco boy, who has piloted quite a number of Charles Johnson's attractions out here, will come to California in July with A Lost Paradise. Phil Simmonds, tbe manager who made himself so well liked a couple of years or so ago in Los Angeles when he was there with Rose Coghlan, is coming out here in charge of The Power of the Press. Frank Daniels, Blue Jeans, Hoes and Hose, Natural Gas and Jane are on their way to the coast, and Gloriana, The Lost Paradise, Augustin Daly's company, Francis Wilson's opera com pany and George W.

Julius Kahn, a well-known actor now resting on his laurels in San Francisco, has been elected a delegate from the thirty-ninth district to the Republican state convention. The Oakland Elks made things merry for Gus Williams last Saturday night by giving him a Dutch supper after the performance. James M.
