SUNDAY SCHOOL SESSIONS
The Best Hour of Holding Them to Be Consid
ered By ihe Union
Tlie hour of holding Sunday school ses*
si one will be the subject considered at the
April meeting of the City Sunday School
union* to he held this evening in the Third
1 Presbyterian church. Hill and Sixteenth
i streets*
There have been some expressions of
sentiment rectmtlv favoring a change ol
j time for holding the session in out- city
' Sunday schools, and as it seems desirable
to have the hour uniform in all the schools,
thesubjectistobedtscusadedat the meeting
lof the city union, where all may have an
I opportunity to participate in the discus
sion.
At this meeting Or. Warren F. Day, pas
tor of the First Congregational church, w ill
speak on the subject from the standpoint
of a pastor, and Mr. S. P. Mulford of the
I First Methodist church Sunday school* will
present the matter from a la> man's point
of view. Also Dr. J. M, Hoal of tho Im
manual Presbyterian Sunday school; Mr.
W* E. McVay and others will speak, and
it is expected that a largo number of Sun
-1 day school and church members will be in
attendance to discuss the matter. Most of
the Sunday schools in tho city now com
mence their sessions at 9:30 or 9,45
oclock in the morning. Some of the
"changers" favor the hour Immediately
following the morning church service, say
12:10 or 12 :30 oclock, while others prefer
the middle of the afternoon, 2:30 or It
oclock.
There seems to be a strong preference
among a great many Sunday school and
church people to continue the present
morning hour. All persons Interested in
this matter are requested to be In attend
ance at the Thursday evening meeting and
take part in the discussion.
LODGING HOUSE BURGLARIZED
Thieves Enter Five Rooms By Using Nlppsrs.
A Neat, Cl."m Job
Burglars entered the two-story lodging
house at 537 Maple avenue, run by a Airs.
M. Sohofleld* between the hours of '2 and
1 4 oclock yesterday morning, and although
a light haul was made, the thieves did
their work with great dexterity and silence,
The job was evidently the work of experts,
and in its nature strongly resembles sev
eral cases of like character which have
lately been reported to the police.
Entrance was effected by the front door,
which is always left unlocked, and the
doors of live rooms were opened by using
nippers upon the keys, which were in the
locks on ihe iinside.
Iv every case the occupants of the apart
ments were undisturbed, nnd the lirsi Inti
mation that a robbery bad taken place was
when the landlady, Mrs Schotteld, awoke
about 5 oclock and found the door of her
room slightly ajar* which she had securely
fastened tho evening before. A Mr.
Devereaux was the heaviest loser, being re
lieved of a gold (Hied watch and $6.80 in
money. From other rooms amounts of
$7, $5 and two of $4 each were secured.
Silver cased watches were rejected, but in
one instance the gold chain attached was
detached and taken. A sum total of $26
cash was secured.
In all the rooms entered burned wax
tapers were found scattered upon the floor.
The thieves did their work with the utmost
silence, not a soul being disturbed In ihe-ir
slumbers. No clew was left behind which
will assist in apprehending tho thieves and
Prom the smooth character of heir work,
both in this and other cases of lil'.e nature,
they bid fair to operate with impunity.

fir.ld Attempt at Burglary
Yesterday afternoon about 4 oclock a
daring attempt was made to burglarize the
residence of 11. S. Mills, which is situated
in the rear oi' 030 Flower street. The bur
glar cut the wire iv the screen door at the
front of the house, and reaching inside
unhooked and opened it. The other door
was ullocked and the marauder walked
boldly into the front room. Mrs. Frances
Mills, the mother of Mr. Mills, was lying
asleep on a lounge in the room. The noise
made by opening the door awoke her, and
seeing a stranger, she screamed loudly for
assistance* The burglar waited for no
further developments, but backing out of
the door sprang over an adjoining hedge
and disappeaied. The occurrence shows
that the advance guard of thieves and
criminals, which usually gather in the
city during Fiesta lime, has made its ap
pearance.
Disnlav* f >r the Chamber
Thomas Shooter of the city has placed
in the art gallery of the chamber of com
merce a dozen or more nigs made of tho
skins of wild animals, all found in Southern
California. There is a beautiful black

lion, that of an immense wild cat, one of
the coyote, a beauty from a large grey
squirrel and another of a badger.
J, Joachim of La Canada has sent a
sample of almonds.
The chamber has forwarded to the state
board of trade at San Francisco two boxes
of fruit, one of nuts aud one of grain.

Those Cleveland Haters, who are also
I Grant lovers, will find themselves in a very
j uncomfortable box when they learn that
. they have been denouncing the president
! for assuming identically the same position
on the Cuban question which General (irant
took with reference to the Cuban patriots
who were lighting for their liberties twenty
five years ago. It appears that the simi
larity between the two cases goes even to
1 this extreme that General Grant went oft"
j fishing while the matter was under consid
. eratlon. liut his action was not subjected
jto the criticism which the jingoists visit
i on Mr. Cleveland forgoing on an occasional
! duck hunt.—Kansas City ttar.
