THE SECOND DAY IN CAMP.
How the National Guards Enjoy Themselves. An Accident to a Member of the Ninth Regiment. The Battalion llrllle as Kxeoated Vea torday—A Review by Golenel oohrleber — I,ten tenant Melrer's Work. Camp Santa Monica waa fairly- allva with bine coats yesterday morning, even long before reveille. The citizen sol diers were an interesting lot to look upon, as tbsy practiced the various ma nenvers and went through the many evolutions employed only by the mili tary. The day opened oloady and 0001, lust sneb wsather as to give the militia vigor to execute the drills with vim. Ths reveille call waa sounded at 5:45 a. m., when the morning gna waa fired. A pretty featnre of the morning was the marching through the Streets of the Ninth regiment band and the Seventh regiment drum corps, and tbe reaidenta of Santa Monica were given a pleaaant awakening by tome very fine music This waa followed np by the uanal roll calls, mess call, etc., after wbich the regimental and battalion drills were executed. In the Ninth regiment, the attendance ia smaller than it has ever been before, only 273 men and 213 offi cers being In camp. For this reason the Ninth did not show np aa well in drill as It otherwise could. The lack of men is attributed to a busy fruit season, in which industry many of the guarda are engaged at present. Tne gnard mount of both regiments passed off finely, v/itb the possible ex ception, in the Ninth, of the review whioh showed lack in drill. The battalion drill of tbe Ninth, nn der Major MoKelveyand Major Prescott, was executed in excellent style, taken as a whole. The regiment was consoli dated into four companies, and Lieuten ant-Colonel John Et, Berry aa drill mas ter waa in command. The men are practically new to the battalion forma tions, and will gradually increase in tbe • kill of tbeir movements in tbsae diffi cult mannenvera. A I)KitAi.D reporter waa present at tbe first battalion drill of the Seventh regi ment. At tbe sound ot the bugle tbe men were on the ground, eager for their work. Colonel Scbreiber waa in com mand, and there were over 325 men in line. Lieutenant Molver, camp instruct or, was taking notes in order to give tbe men and officers their proper school. Tbe colonel divided the men into fonr companies instead of seven, and drilled tbem in platoon movements. Some of tbe men were in a measure handicapped by the colonel dropping out their own officers and aubstitoting others tbey had never drilled nnder, but on tbe whole did very well. The men seemed to think they could have done much better nnder their regular officers, and feel tbat any mistakes that may have ooenrred were not altogether their own fault. On the whole the drills of both regiments were very creditable. Tke battalion drills were the hardest work of the day, and after the minor duties, and alter mess, the men, except the guards, were dismissed nntil 4 o'clock. They enjoyed themselves im mensely for the i ond day of oamp. When the soldiers returned to camp, after having spent the afternoon upon the beach and in the water, they par ticipated in regimental drcaa parade and review. The review of the Seventh was under command of Lfentenant-Colonel Howland, and waa reviewed by Col. Wm. G. Sohreiber. The usual rails ware tbe order oi the evening after meaa, and by 11 o'clock all waa as quiet in the camp as it was once npon a time along the proverbial Potomac. The first accident sines the camp waa opened occurred yesterday afternoon. Several of the members of Company E, Ninth regiment, were boyishly playing leapfrog on tbe beach, when Private Lu cius G. Allen of San Bernardino fell and broke his right leg near tbe ankle. He waa immediately taken to the hospital, where Surgeons Magee and Ball exam ined the fracture. They report it not so bad as was at first anticipated, but tbe young man will be incapacitated for sev eral weeks. Company A of the Seventh intends giving a military ball at the North Beach bath house tomorrow evening. On Saturday evening a big campfire on the grounds will be the attraction. Aa enjoyable time is expected, as both regiments will likely participate. Brig.-Gen. C. 0. Allen ia expected to arrive at tbe camp thia morning. Al though be doea not come on an official trip, he will probably review thetroopa. The commissary department ie the center of interest among the boys about three times a day. The food is ex cellent, in both quality and quantity, and, aave a tough steak occasionally, there haa been nothing to canae the slightest dissatisfaction. Tbe mess tables are supplied, in trne camp style, with all imaginable provisions. Both regiments have good cooks, good and handsome waiters, and all ths neces aries that go to make oamp life enjoy able. Tbe quarters for the commissary de partment are located on the front side if tha samp, while the mesa houses Are all in a row, serving aa a dividing line between tbe two regiments. Every thing is neat and clean, and it is really an enjoyment more than anything else to be among the militia and camp and work with them.

Tbe colonel and hie staff are highly elated over tbe lisntenant's work, which they appreciate beyond expression. He rises with the men early every morning and stays on duty until lats at night. His instructions, will be of grsat advan tage to the men. Lieutenant Mclver ia a West Point graduate, and ia now first lieutenant in the Seventh infantry, U. S. A. He was engaged in the cam paign against the Sionx Indians in the outbreak in Sonth Dakota in 1890-91, and has a most creditable reoord as an officer. The new company, Company 0, in tbe Seventh, is still improving, and it is hard to detect the difference now be tween the new company, if it may now so bs called, and tbe others of tbe Sev enth, Captain Symma haa done a good deal of hard work to get them into oamp, and tbe boys are a credit to him. Upon recommendation of company commanders the following members of the Ninth regiment have been die charged for the reaaons atated: Private Fairbolm, Private D. E. Moore, Private G. J.

A Peeailar Way te Sava ths Tax payers. The waya of the board of education, like Bret Hart's "heathen Chinee," aie peculiar, and paat finding out. Their latest efforts to distinguish themselves is in tbe way of letting contracts for furnishing supplies. Some time ago they advertised for 250 tone of coal. The bida were to be opened August 13tb at 8 p.m. At the day and hour stated there were fonr bids on hand, viz.: Hancock Banning, Cerrillos company, Caledonian and F.lai nore. Although opened by the secre tary, it is alleged they were not made public and the deoision waa laid over until the board should have further time. Tbe following day the secretary of the board, it ia said, met one of the bid dera, and told kirn tbat but four bids had been rsesived, and that bis bid wonld be acoepted in all probability, aa it was the lowest of the better grades submitted. In the meantime the different coal dealers had learned of the different prices in the bids, varying from $5 to »9 a ton, and thought it waa settled as to who should receive the contract. Imagine the surprise of tbe contestants, at tbe meeting held Monday night, to have It announced that the bid of the Crescent Coal company had been accepted at 10 oents a ton less than tha lowest of tb c four former bidders, or at the rate of 17.88. The other blddera aaaert that tbe reat ot the bida were not even read in publio, aa the law contemplates, and moreover the fifth bid waa not even known of. In fact, the secretary had aaid to several coal dealers that the four bida were the only onea submitted. The dealera who were unsuccessful do not care for the loss of the oontraot co much as they do for the method whioh wae resorted to. Tbey claim that tbeir bids were opened, and tbat the fifth bid came in, as evidenced by the admiseion ol the seoretary, after the pricea had be come known. A VERY CLOSE CALL. Charles T. Deering Nearly I.oaea Hie Lire at Santa Mouloa. Charles T. Deering of the Loa Angelea Lighting company's office, met with an accident at Santa Monica Sunday even ing, which nearly oost him his life. He and George J. Lendenfeld were about to return from the beach. Tbe train whioh they wished to take bad just started and Mr. Deering attempted to swing himself on board. Hia foot slipped and he was thrown to the ground, his head hitting close to the moving wheels. Had he fallen six inches farther nnder the train the wheels would have crushed him. As it was he was considerably bruised about tbe head and face. Both yonng men remained in Santa Monica that night and came up to town Monday morning.

More Interest and a Much Larger Attendance. The Contest Today for tha Tournament Trophy Will Ba Between Bumil ler and V. Carter—Some Used Playing-. Enthusiasm was at its height yester day over the tennis tournament of the Southern California association, wbich opened at Santa Monica Monday. A larger attendance, more entries, cooler weather and better playing combined to make the day one of unexcelled interest. A groat number crowded the Casino courts, both in the forenoon and after- View of the Sanla Monica tennis cowl. (From a photograph by H. F. Rile Sanla Monica.) noon, to watoh tbe semi-finals and the finals, which were played in tbe highest order of excellence. F. Carter eaaily defeated Lester in the forenoon, playing a snperb game. The other playera alao showed np remarka bly wall, giving a good indication tbat some really fine tennis will bo seen be fore tbe close of the tonrnament. In all comers' donbles there were 20 entries, or 10 teams, at the hour of clos ing. Freeman and Picher, Bumiller and Germain, Acker and Wilson, K. Carter and partner, Spence and Smith, and R. P. and F. Carter drawing byea with Ooabv; and Way va. Oaborn and R. Car ter, Barry and Young and W. and G. Corson to contend in the preliminary round. Play commenced in the event after luncheon, and at thia atage it is diffi cult to piok ont winners. Many ot the knowing ones declare it will narrow Partial view of the tennis court thawing the Casino veranda. (From a photo gragh by 11. F. Hilt, Santa Monica.) down to a contest between Bumiller and Germain vs. the Carter brothera. Play commenced yesterday morning by Lester defeating Coeby, 3-0, 0-2, 6-4, and Bumiller beating Spence 6-3, 6-1, thua finishing the third round in the eemi-finala. T. Carter defeated Lester 6-3, 6-2, thns leaving Bumiller and T. Carter to battle for the tournament trophy in all comers' singles and the honor of contesting with tbs dongbty tennis chieftain, R. P. Carter, for the challenge cnp. In the afternoon play commenced in the contest between Freeman and Bumiller. In tbe laat contest in the semi-finals, it was Pasadena vs. Loa An gelea, Throop va. Stanford, with tbe crowded grand atand evenly divided be tween adherents of the manly yontha of Southern California. The contest was a stubbornly fought one from start to finish, every advantage being taken. The first set reaulted in Bumiiler'a Peyton Carter, player. favor, with the score 8-0. Many said that Bumiller wonld walk away from his opponent from the Grown of the Valley in the next, thus finding the match, bat they were mistaken in their estimate of the young man'a staying abilities and judgment, for he won the set by the same score at his rival did the preceding one. The final set was hotly contested, but the Pasadenan was compelled to suc cumb to the flower of Los Angeles ten nis experts by the score of ti 4, thus making the match 8-6, 0-8, 0-4 iv Bu miller's favor. Iv all comers' dctiMes, Wj» beat Osborn and K.Ctrier, .10 H \,i 5, jt.d Barry and Young defeated. \V, aud G. Corson, 2-6, 6-4 and 6-1 in ths pre liminary round.

Carter, the champion, in the afternoon for the challenge cnp, which the Santa Monican has won twice, and can keep ahould he prove victorious in tomor row's contest. Miaa Shoemaker of Pasadena arrived yeaterday and was a welcome tourna ment recruit. British Vice Consul Ruak Harris was an interested vieitor at the gamea of yesterday. Miaa Innea of Angeleno Heighta was present. The tennis ball at the casino on Thurs day night givea promise of exceeding brilliancy. Among those in tbe grand atand yes terday were Mr. O'Poolov and nephew, M.

The fire commiaaion will meet at 10 o'olock today. Some inquiry as to the buaineea which will probably come be fore the commission discloses an inter esting Btate of affaire. It is pretty certain tbat a large num ber ot resii.-ii.tt.onr. of firemen will have tn be passed npon. Several m»»'iw Robirt Heltntr, tttrttary, ago the commission issued a decree that wits intended to shut oft' the firemen from politica, to the effect that firemen were prohibited from taking part in conventions, primaries-, r.nd political bodies of oil kinds. It appears now that a great ruanv firemen will resign at to day's meeting. In fnct so many resig nations will be offered that is possible the whole thing is an attempt to make the commiesioiiors rescind their action. Kckstrom does tha wall paper ousluess of the oity.

MORE MYSTERY ABOUT BOILERS. The Board of Education's Strug gle With the Problem. Prices on Boilers Are Bard to Get At. Th* Supply Committee or the Board or Kdocatloa ITreatlee Unencoeie rully With a Knotty Problem. Juet what kind oi a boiler will be used for the heating apparatus of the high school is still a matter of doubt. All of yesterday morning was spent by the supply committee of the board of education in President Pepper's oflioe, where a thorough diecnssion of the problem was held, bnt no conclusion was reached. Mr. Traak wasn't present and the other members decided to wait until hia return, and will meet again thie morning and settle the matter defi nitely. The time of the committee was very profitably spent, notwithstanding no definite action was reached. The members learned a vast deal about boilers at that meeting, and will give the l.os Angeles public tbe benefit of tbeir knowledge. The contract for putting in the heat ing apparatus, as the public well knows, oalled ior a National tube boiler. The board stipulated, however, tbat should it decide to put in another kind of a boiler, it conld do so by paying the dif ference in price. That looked very rea sonable. But there was a dark-skinned individual in the woodpile. Last night at tbe meeting several gen tlemen appeared belore the board of ed ucation to talk about boilers. The Wil cox Boiler company sent Charles A. Moore of San Francisco down, and Mr. Moore opened the ball by praising np his boiler and running down the Na tional. He did not mention snch a thing as a Root boiler. Next came Mr. Nolan, wbo talked Root boiler right from the shoulder and cast a bomb into the peaceful camp by the statement that be had figured with the contractor on both the Root and the National boilers and tbat he would fur nish a National for $(iJO cheaper than he wonld a Root. But—tbe National was no good and ths Root tip-top. As soon as the members of the board could reoover from tho shock the strait they were in became apparent. The board could take a boiler whioh would not be guaranteed and which the agent himself said was no good, or else pay $<iOO more than the contraot called for and get a Root. But the scheme wan most transparent when the agents of all the boilers re fused to give prices upon any one of them. "We are not here to mention prieea," they aaid, "only to talk about our boil era. The contractors only are in tores ted in prices." But reßterday morning it waa differ ent. The board had referred the mat ter to its aupply committee, and the supply committee slept over the matter and woke up with a plan of action clear ly denned, Kaoh agent waa oalled be fore the committee separately and made to give figures on his particular boiler, with the reault that the committee has some valuable information, aa follows: Tbe National boiler can be bought on board tbe cars at New York for $700, tbe Root for $01)0 and the Wilcox for $1150, and the difference in price, there fore, is easy to get at. And the chancea are the committee will pay $200 extra instead of $600, and take a Root boiler. STOLE THE STOCK. A Bartender Who Had An Eye far tbe Future. E. A. Mellick is disgusted with tbe saloon business. Time was when he considered it quite a snap, as the saying is. From what he could learn and see on the outside, he thought it must be one oi the niceat aud most profitable businesses that a man could I>t into. The profits must certainly be large and the buainesa pleasant enough when con ducted right, and only a few drawbacks presented themselves to his mind. So Mr. Mellick went into the aaloon business. He rented a place down on Main street and stocked it up. Now Mr. Mellick thought he had discovered something about the saloon business which most people in it overlook, and that wae the fact that a bartender is somewhat superfluous. "It will be just as well," thought Mr. Mellick, "to tend the bar myself, and thus save the expense of a barkeeper and also escape tbe possibility of being systematically robbed.." So he did. The plan worked well, too, for a certain length of time, but there came a day, it waa last Mouday, by tbe way, when Mr. Mellick got a terrible longiug to lay off. That was a fatal mistake, as will more fully appear from a suit which will be heard today in Police Jnotice Austin's court. This suit is entitled The People vs. W. S. Little. Mr. Mellick took bis dap off and this same W. S. Little is tbe man he put on while he went off. It seems that Little not only took ad vantage of the situation to till up on hia employer's liquors, but had hia eye on the future. The complaint says he wilfully and unlawfully carried away 30 bottles of assorted wines, brandies aud whisky, one demijohn of whisky, two gallons of giu, one pistol, two boxes of cigars and one box of cigarettes, but he also went through the cash drawer snd took 18,50 in silver.

Two of the three members of an Ital ian family whose names are something of a puz/.ie to tbe average person were arreated yesterday by tbe city police The man gavo his name as Louis Nol • ncr, tbe woman, who was his wife, was booked as Biaoca Nlngtas, and tho boy, a son of the couple, hne not been cap tured, though the police assert that his name is nothing like that of his parents. All three are charged with battery, the offenße having been comm tted on each other in the course ol a family row. A Decision by Jotlg-tt (ilark. Judge Clark yesterday decided the case of J. F. Wilson vs. D. O. Miltimore and tbe University Bank of Los Angeles, in accordance with the opinion riled in the case, directing the defendant to draw findings and judgment for costs. The action wbb one to quiet the title to the southwest quarter of recti m |8 Booth, tattgo lii ' - st, and involved tl c construction 01 an instrument as to whether it was a deed or inottg*ge. WARNER ON GRAMMAR. A Resident of University Wrlt.s to th. CuOßOll. John M. Warner of University bag addressed a lengthy commnnication to tbe honorable city council, calling at tention to tbe extraordinary knowledge of tbe Kngliah language possessed by tbe antbor of the notices of atreet work of the city. Ia btißSful ignoranoe of the fact tbat some of tbe spelling and moat of the grammar in hia own com munication ia incorrect, Mr. Warner consumes four pagea of foolscap (very appropriate for the purpose, too, per haps) in pointing out a grammatioal error in tbe ordinances aud noticea of atreet work lor Figueroa street. The notices state that the street aball be graded, graveled aud guttered with aephalt gutteia. He pointa ont the fact that tbe street may be guttered with asphalt gutters, but cannot be graded or graveled with asphalt gutters, and says it reminds him of the deed drawn up by a distinguished gentleman wbo wrote: "This indenture, between Mrs. Mary Jonse, formerly tbe wife of John Jonea, Henry Brown, William Scott, Edward (ireen and John Andrews, parties of the first part, etc." Mr. Warner says that he has gone ao far as to call npon a lawyer in regard to this matter, but the lawyer wae not in when he called—a faot wbich the au thor of the noticea will no doubt re joice at. Not satisfied, either, with tbe fonr pagea of foolscap, Mr. Waruer writes a poatacript on the margin of the last page as follows: "P. S.—lf you insist on having the street improved as specified south of Jefferson, I intend to have the enter prise buated, if poasible. Sidewalka and curbing are all that are needed there now, except tbat tbe city pipe the water for irrigation instead ol having an open zanja." Mr. Warner winds up by saying the notices ougnt to be aent to tbe Smith sonian inatitution as ourioaitiee. ktneklen'a Arnlea oalve.
