The four members of the crew
all live in San Francisco. The Santa

at the mouth of Honda creek. It is
supposed that the powerful search

taking it for the light of the Point Ar

about 200 yards from shore near Sad

Exceptional interest is being shown
in the various companies in rifle
shooting. Under the directin of
Capt. E. C. Gearey, Jr., this feature
has grown steadily, and the efficiency
of the rifle team has benefited as a
result. Steady progress has been
made in the competitions at Camp
Perry, where the best riflemen of the
country assemble every year. The
rifle shooting this year will be done
during the encampment, when a team
will be picked by Captain Gearey to
enter the national shoot.
Besides Captain Fraser and Cap

Fargo, Captain Sarles of Hillsboro
and Lieutenant Hamilton of James-1
town are in the city.
