A N ENORMOUS ATTENDANCE. San Francisco and Oakland Run a Neck and Neck Race for the Grand Trophy. The drill competition of the Cantons comprising the Second Regiment of Cali fornia, at the Academy of Music last night, attracted an audience to that building that filled it to its utmost ca pacity. The ground floor was arranged by seats in tbe form of a square, the area being left blank for the evolutions of the different troops. By 8 o'clock, the hour set for the commencement of the pro- ceedings, the scene within the building was a very striking one. The glittering uniforms of the Chevaliers contrasted strongly with the raiment of their more sober-clad brethren, and judging by the toilettes of the ladies the "upper crust" of Los Angeles society was in attend ance. On the stage was quartered Meine's band and the officers of the evening, the rest of the seating accommo dations being occupied by prominent residents of the city. In the center of the platform, resting on a table that could be easily seen from all parts of the hall, were the prizes, which were to be awarded as follows: Ist. For the best dress parade by regiment- One pair of regimental guidon flags. 2nd. For the best drilled Cantons In move ments as per schedule in Grand Order No. 11— The possession of the Grand Encampment Trophy for one year, or until won by some other Canton in contest at Annual Cantonment. 3d. For the second best drilled Canton in c. nest—An elegant swinging water pitcher and cups, for use of Canton in armory. 4th. For the Canton with the greatest num ber of Chevaliers in line at grand parade ou the 18th of September in Los Augeles—At. elegant drum stand for Canton use. Dth For the best equipped Canton—An ele gant drum and stand for Canton use. 6th. For Canton with largest per cent of members ptesent, and coming over 100 miles— An elegant bugle for Canton use. 7th. For Canton with greatest number pres ent and coming over 100 miles—An elegant bu gle for Canton use. Bth, 9th, 10th. For the three officers drilling the Canton in contest that wins the (hand En campment Trophy—lst, 2d and 3d jewels of Decoration of Chivalry, respectively. 11th, 12th aud 13th For the three best dillled commissioned officers iv manual of sword aud marching—lst. 2d and 3d jewels of Decoration of Chivalry, respectively. 14th, 15th aud 16th. For the three best drilled Chevaliers (uot commissioned officers) In the manual of sword and marching—lst, 2d and 3d jewels of Decoration of Chivalry, re spectively. In addition to the tibovc prizes an elegant dressing case for gentlemen, ilesicnatcd the Litchfield priz3, and donated by J. M Litchfield it Co., of San Erancisco, was offered to the best drilled commissioned officer, past or present, and a member iv good stauding of a Cauton In this Grand Department, who may complete in the officer's individual contest. There was also a solid silver cup, called the Vanderslice prize, and donated by VandersHce & Co., of San Francisco, for the best drilled Chevalier and not commissioned officer who will enter the contests. The judges of the contest were Lieut. Reber, aide-de-camp on General Miles' staff, Major H. M. Russell, and Maj. S. S. Butter, Adjutant-General of the Ist Brigade, N. G. C. The cantons entered for competition were San Francisco No. 5, San Bernardino No 17, San Itiego No. 22. Sacramento No. 1 and Oakland No. 11. The grand trophy which was the principal object of rivalry is offered for annual competition, this being its third appearance. On the first occasion it was won by Vallejo Cauton, and on the sec ond by Oakland, who were the holders at the opening cf last night's competition. Brigadier-General Russell, command ing the Department of the Pacific, acted as master of ceremonies, and after a few selections had been played by the orchestra called on the San Bernardino Canton to OPEN TUE ENTERTAINMENT. They came marching in, fourteen in number, under the command of Col. E. H. Black, and it was soon evident tbat a picked body of men was present. They went through the fifty-two movements (given in yesterday's Herald) in fault less style, and the precision of their ac tions evoked hearty applause from the admiring onlookers. The most difficult changes were made with a natural swini; that must have cost lots of practice, ono particularly fine movement being the oblique to the right and then marching to their original front. They occupied the floor for about 25 minutes, and when they retired the knowing ones said that the prospects for San Francisco gaining the trophy were remarkably good. . The sound of a bugle brought the San Bernardino Canton on the floor, their numbers being the same as the preceding contingent. They did very well at first but made one or two breaks'later on, thus wrecking their prospects of getting the first prize. Next came the San Diego Canton,also number ing fourteen in the rank and file, and though they did some of the movements very v, ell,yet in others they broke badly. An explanation was offered after they had retired, however, by Colonel Black, who said that the San Diego Canton had labored under great disadvantages. In the first place their Captain, Douglass Gunn, had been ill in bed for several weeks,ami was even then scarcely well enough to carry out the fa tigue of the evening. And secondly, the San Diego Canton was a new one and had never drilled together with the schedule before Tuesday last, this being their fourth work together. "They did not expect to win," said Colonel Black, '•but only entered to make the competi tion better, and I think that under the circumstances they are deserving of great credit.". His auditors thought so too, for the ap plause which followed was both deafening and prolonged, and had the San Diego Canton bovn marched on the floor again they would have been tendered an ova tion far outrivaling that accorded to any of the others. The Sacramento Canton came next, eighteen strong, under the command of Captain Sherburn. Far a time it looked as if they would equal the performance given by the San Franciscans, but one or two breaks in the second part of the programme greatly hurt their prospects. Every one was in a fever of expectancy when the Oakland boys, commanded by Captain H. Cole, marched in for they claim to be the crack team of the State and were determined to do their best to retain the trophy. They gave a splendid performance, impaired a little somewhat by one or two mishaps, but taken on the whole it looked like a n*ck and neck race between them and Sin Francisco for the first prize. The announcement was then made that the Marion, Ind., Canton would give an ex hibitive non-competitive drill, Captain Gunter explaining that it was not to show themselves eff, but simply in re sponse to a general desire for them to take tbe floor. Their masterly move ments have already been commented on at length in these columns and their performance last night worthily added to their former successes. Then came the competition for officers, each one being drilled separately, and for this appeared Capt. Albert J. Cory, of Selma No. 24; Capt. W. S. Potter, of Canton San Francisco No. 5, and Lieutenant Fred Fillmore, of Canton San Francisco No. 5. Their performances were all good and won them considerable applause, and when they had retired it was a hard matter for an outsider to guess which would be declared the victor.
