th* ether yachts, then steamed through the Sues, the sailors heartily cheering and ths bands playing "God Save the Queen." The Victoria and Albert af terward anchored between the Renown and the foreign war vessels, and Imme diately the steam launches of the for eign commanders left the sides of the big ships and made for the Victoria and Albert, on the quarter deck of which the commanding officers were received by the Prince of Wales. The review itself did not add very much to the picture framed for the spectator this morning, saving always the battle-like roar of the great guns, which was enough to wake the dead. One of the prettiest sights of the day was when the royal yacht had come to anchor. The various foreign admirals, with their staffs, put off to pay their re spects to the prince of Walep. As they passed the different warships, the bugle.s sounded, the bands played and the ma rines presented arms. All the admirals, with the exception of Rear Admiral Mil ler went in their steam launches. The admiral went ln his barge, the seamen of the Brooklyn rowing so finely that they provoked approving comments on all sides for their skill and sailor like appearance. The prince of Wales re ceived Admiral Miller and his staff with special cordiality and complimented him upon the appearance of the Brooklyn. The Prince of Wales received Admiral Miller and his staff with special cordial ity, and complimented him upon the appearance of the Brooklyn. The prince presented each of the admirals with a medal as a souvenir of the Jubilee. On board the Brooklyn during the re view there was a number of prominent Americans, the guests of Admiral Mil ler and the other officers of the United States cruiser. They included Mrs. Levi P. Morton and her daughter, Mr. and Mrs. John Meigs and 1 their daughter, Miss Grace, and Mr. and Mrs. Watson Blair of Chicago. It is genrally admitted that the Brook lyn presented the smartest appearance of any of the foreign ships. The Illuminations ot the Brooklyn to night reflect the greatest credit upon all concerned. Along her rail was a row of electric lights, while between her funnels were large letters "V. R." and the dates "1837—1897," showing up conspicuously. But the most striking feature was Old Glory flying from a ytardarm, and or. which from time to time the rays of a searchlight were thrown, all the other lights of the cruiser in the meanwhile being extinguished, thus giving the flag the appearance of floating in the air. The Prince and Princess of Wales passed the lines on board the Alberta and returned to the harbor at midnight. The fleet then fired a royal salute. GHOSTLY SHIPS RYDE, Isle of Wight, June 26,10 p. m. —The illumination, of the fleet at Spit head was one of the most charming sights of a week of delightful epectacles. The night was dark, and the waters of the Solent were quiet. It was ghostly, fantastic, suggestive of fairyland and the world of magic. The brutal grim -B*ss of all the enginery of destruction— eagave looking guns, venomous tor pedoes, the veritable teeth of war —were lost in peaceful shadow and softening gloom. One minute before 9 oclock the waters showed only such lights as are usually associated with shipping, reds and greens on port and starboard, while lights at mastheads, gleams that, like tiny rows of diamonds, showed the ports of pas senger craft, with here and there some partl-colored lights that had been lighted ln private vessels before the time. At 9 oclock there was a flash, a rocket from the Renown rushed Into the dark blue, and, bursting into a shower of splendid stars, signalled the. lighting up of the fleet. The stick of tbe rocket had not turned toward the water ere the mighty fleet was suddenly skeletoned ln brilliant yellow light, hulls, smoke stacks, spars and cordage being thrown into strong relief. Light lines ran in graceful curves along the sweep of the monsters, now ghostly gray in the sud den glare, and from bow to stern, over the mastheads, were garlands of incan descent light, like "jeweled necklaces hung upon the horns of night." A few minutes later they vanished with the suddenness of their appearance, leaving the spectators peering at the place where they had been.. Then the darkness was broken again, - This time, by numberless searchlights, which, with uncanny glare, like the eyes of a hun dred cyclops, patterned the heavens as a checkerboard with radiant bands. Later these "eyes" slowly swept the gathered craft and the shores beyond, as if seeking something to devour. Then they were all shut off, leaving the dark ness more visible than ever. A pause, and the darkness was pierced by hundreds of signal rockets, soaring into the blue with messages of jubila tion. The purpose of this naval exhibition was not to be overlooked, however, and the might of Britain, its ever prepared strength, was again to be impressed upon the staring thousands. A signal rocket leaped from the Re nown, and: now there was provided an exhibition of what war would be like If ever an immense fleet of battleships and cruisers should engage at night. A royal salute of sixty guns was fired from every ship capable of firing it. Great guns and small guns answered each other in one prolonged roar, rising and falling in intensity as more or less of them fired together. It was truly awful. Even the certain knowledge that there were no deadly missiles in the guns did not prevent a chill feeling from creeping over many of the civilian spectators. The foreign warships, moored opposite the British lines, joined the cannonade, and to the superstitious there was from the deep-throated guns of the United States, Russia, France and Germany a note of defiance, a resonant salute an swering gun for gun. Yet all was in honor of Victoria. Then the angry roaring ceased, much to the relief of thousands who were stopping their ears, and as the panoply of unpleasant smoke slowly drifted away, the fleet again stood revealed ln fairy lines of lightness. The gentle side of things was again put to the front to instill into the minds of departing thousands that while the dogs of war were "ready, aye ready," that after all what the people came out to see was the "triumph of peace and the glory of the queen." The naval guests include Rear Ad miral H. R. H. Prince Henry of Prus sia, K. G., Vice-Admiral H. R. H., the Duke of Genoa, Rear Admiral Miller, U. S. N., and other distinguished flag officers. Banquets, balls, garden parties, dock yard visits and athletic sports will be Included ln the program, which it is supposed will fill the week following the review. OTHER EXHIBITIONS International exhibitions have become common occurrences, and the Spithead review of 1897 may be regarded as a great International naval exhibition, from which doubtless the seamen and constructors cf the various nations will carry away much valuable informa tion. The waters of the Solent have pre viously witnessed many magnificent reviews of the naval forces of England. On April 23. 1856, at the close of the Crimean war, a great review was held there, when there were columns of screw Ilne-of-battleshlps—at that peri od the latest development of naval pow er—of screw frigates and corvettes, a fleet of sidewheel vessels and of "floating batteries" of the Merrlmac type, while four squadrons of 160 gunboats brought up the total number of ships to 240. This fleet carried 3002 guns and was of 30,671 horse-power. Admiral Sir George Seymour was in chief command of this fine fleet, which was reviewed by her Majesty on board the royal yacht Vic toria and Albert. The changes In naval architecture which have taken place during the last fifty years have swept away all these wooden vessel; the class es to which they belonged no longer ex ist, the sole remaining vessel which still takes the seas being the royal yacht Victoria and Albert, which today fliee the standard of the Prince of Wales at the naval review. Probably a more beautiful vessel of her class has never been launched, and the recent anncunce- ment that a model of a new steel yacht to replace her has been submitted to the Queen was not read without regret. The next great review held at Spit head was on- July 17, 1867, when her Ma jesty, accompanied by the Sultan of Turkey, reviewed a fleet of wooden ves sels and Ironclads (of which the most modern of the latter were the Minotaur, Achilles, Warrior, Black Prince, Bellero pho-tt and Lord Clyde), under the com mand of Sir Thomas Pasley, Bart., K. C. B. On June 23. 1873, the waters of Spit head were again the scene of a naval re view, this time In honor of his Majesty, the Shah of Persia, On August 13, 1878, her Majesty In spected the fleet at Spithead, and on July 23, 1887, on the occasion of the Queen's jubilee, a large fleet was again assembled there and reviewed by the sovereign. The most modern ships present on that occasion were the Colllngwood, Imper ieuse and Conqueror. The fleet was com posed) of 134 vessels, the personnel of 20, --000 officers and men. During the past decade enormous ad vance has been made both in the num ber and construction of the ships of the royal navy, and this cannot better be exemplified than by the fact that of the 21 battleships reviewed by the Prince of Wales, in behalf of the Queen today, four only took part in the jubilee cere mony of 1887, whilst of the 43 cruisers not one existed In 1887. Needless to say, the 39 torpedo boat destroyers are of a class which has only been introduced during the past five years and which ap pears to be destined to play a very Im portant part in modern sea warfare. THE KICKS COMING After the jubilee festivities there has been a deluge of grumbles, begun by the speculators who almost without ex ception have lost money owing to their foolishness ln demanding fortunes for their seats. Then the caterers did not find the crowd'as hungry and thirsty as they considered: people ought to have been. The tradesmen found' that the jubilee visitors could not buy to any great extent, as It took all their savings to see the show, and there has been considerable grumbling on the subject of jubilee honors. The men whose names have been left out of the list are notable Liberal politicians and formerly ministers, who declare that honors were given on strictest party lines. With the exception of W. Vernon Harcourt no former Liberal minister was invited to be present at the ceremonies before St. Paul's cathedral, and the member® of the house of commons who arrived too late at Buckingham palace to be In the audience declare the queen should have waited for them. The charity society women think that the Princess of Wales' dinner to the poor was a kindly thought, but they claim it was a mistaken idea and that the money hadi better been given to the societies dealing habitually with this work. An undertaker got ready a thousand coffins and no, one needed them. The temperance people are wildly raving at beer being given to the outcast poor, and' there are thousands of complaints, based upon jealousy, that everybody could not get a front seat at a favored place and at every endi THE ROYAL MUSEUM The queen has already received a small museum of costly presents, and many more are on the way to her majesty. Whatever form they take, most of these gifts are studded with gems. The present of the Prince and Princess of Wales and their' Children Is a large diamond brooch with a jubilee inscription, and that of the Duke and Duchess of Saxe-Coburg and the Duke and Duchess of Connaught, Prince and Princess Christian of Schleswlg-Hol- stein, the Marquis and 1 Marchioness of Lome, Princess Henry of Battenburg and the Duchess of Albany is a long chain of diamond links, also jubilee in scribed The Cingalese sent an address in an ivory and gold casket encrusted with sixty-eight gems, and all the chiefs of India are Eending presents. AMERICAN VISITORS Americans were much in evidence at the jubilee procession. Mrs. Bradley- Martin, dressed in blue, was at the Bachelors' club; Mr. William Waldorf Astor, v ilh a large party, was at Lord Norman ton's house on Pall Mall; Lady William Beresford entertained a large luncheon party and Mrs. John W. Mack ay received a few intimate friends of Mrs. Cavendish. Ben Lick and a num ber of others, including Mrs-. Ogden Goe let and her daughter and Mrs. Ronalds, were at the Clarence house. Mrs. White law Reid, wife of the United States spe cial envoy, gave a luncheon to a party after the procession, as did Mrs. John Hay, wife of the United States ambas sador. Mrs. Joseph Chamberlain went to all the functions. At St. Paul's ca thedral she wore a very attractive cos tume of light green silk, and Mrs. George N. Curzon was dressed in pale lilac. Mrs. James N. Roosevelt, who with Mrs. Howard Kings-note, has taken Warwick house, St. James, gave a large concert on Monday. The house was draped with white roses and orchids in profusion. The Winnipeg oarsmen who are to take part in the Henley regatta viewed the procession from the Cambridge en closure and returned to Henley in time to take a spin over the course. They have taken quarters at the Manor farm and are delighted with thp hospitality shown to them on all sides. They say the Brit ishers can not do enough to make things pleasant for them. They rowed over the full course-on Thursday for the first time in good time and with plenty of power. Vanity Fair's cartoon for the current week is Col John Hay, the United States LOS ANGELES HERALOt SUNDAY MORNING JUNE 27,11* ambassador, who thus Joins the "Gal lery of the Most Famous Men of the Day." After a flattering notice of Col. Hay, a» Journalist, poet, author, soldier and diplomat, Vanity Fair concludes: "He has a wife and a charming daugh ter,who have taken places in London so ciety. Altogether he is quite a cultured man, who can talk exceedingly well. He is a kindly, rather serious, good natured. polite gentleman, who speaks with a slight accent when warmed to the sub ject." There is considerable comment at the Canadian premier, William Laurier, ac cepting a knighthood after repeatedly declining the honor and contrary to pre cedent in the case of Canadian premiers. SINGER'S MILLIONS To Be Used in Establishing; a Kinder garten in Now York NEW YORK, June 26.—Mrs. Alfred Corning Clark of Cooperstown, N. V., Is about to place ln New York an. endur ing memorial of her late husband, whose father, with Isaac Singer, founded the Singer Sewing Machine Company. In the very heart of the East Side tenement district she Is about to erect a building which will combine a model kindergar ten school with an entertainment hall, and on the roof a covered breathing spot for hot summer evenings. The New York Kindergarten Association will have charge of the school and Mrs. Clark will maintain it. According to present plans, fully $500, --000 will have to be set aside for the build ing and Its support. But more than that may be necessary, for orders have been given to make this the model kin dergarten school of the world. The lease has been purchased and workmen are getting ready to remove the old build ings standing there now. The building will be ready for occupancy by next summer. ORDERED DEPORTED Judge De Haven Overrules the Col lector's Decision SAN FRANCISCO, June 26.—Judge De Haven of the United States District Court has ordered the deportation of Leung Ah Fung, thus overruling the de cision of ex-Collector of Customs Wise, who admitted her on the ground that she was native-born. Tho woman arrived here on August 29, 1896, and was one of the sixty women captured In the China town raid of March 23d. When her case came before Commissioner Heacock her attorney held that the Collector's decis ion was final and that the courts could not review the evidence. The Commis sioner held otherwise, and as it was shown that she was born in China, she was ordered deported. Judge De Hav en's action in sustaining this decision opens the way for the deportation of a large number of Chinese women. A SANGER FIRE The Little Town Threatened With Destruction SANGER, June 26.—Afcout 12 oclock last night fire broke out ln the Patterson block, a two-story structure, burn (fig it to the ground and which for a time threatened to destroy the town. Shortly after the fire broke out a terrific explo sion occurred, completely demolishing tha burning building. Several firemen had narrow escapes from falling walls. The loss is estimated at $35,000, divided as follows: I. N. Patterson of San Fran cisco, owner of the building, $15,000; El more Bros., drug store, $4000; Gaudrae & Dlrvin, barbers, $500; Rodgers Bros., saloon, $2,500; Shellenbarger & Ingels, grocery, $3000; G. F. Bemls, Jewelep $3500; William Barr, $250; Lafferty & Sons, restaurant, $300. The total insurance Is about $20,000. The Miners' Meeting DENVER, Col., June 26.—1t Is now be lieved that every state in. the Union will be represented by delegates to the inter national gold mining convention. Al ready the managers have been notified of the appointments of delegates from various municipal and commercial bodies of thirty-five states and of delegates at large from twenty-three states. The In terest manifested in, the meeting, es pecially by the people of the eastern states, has surprised the originator* of the affair. Several of the delegates have arrived, and the mineral displays from the various states are coming every day. The exhibits from some of the states that have not heretofore been classed among the mining states will surprise the visitors to the convention. Preparations for the entertainment of the visitors are well in hand. Active Endeavorers SAN FRANCISCO. June 26.—The lo cal committees of the Christian En deavor are making great preparations for the forthcoming convention. Simul taneous meetings during the sessions here will be held all over the city with noonday services in the chamber of commerce, the Emporium, on the water front, in the public squares, at the Union iron works, at the city hall, at Fourth and Townsend streets and in the court of the Palace hotel. These ser vices will be addressed by notable di vines. Gospel wagons will be used and the Volunteers of America and the Sal vation army will be called upon for special service. The Durrant Case SAN FRANCISCO, June 26.—Legal advisors of Theodore Durrant have- no fears that their client will be hanged on July 7. They deny that they are strug gling for delay, and say the leading law point involved in the appeal to th© United States court Is that Durrant's prosecution having been based on in formation instead of upon indictment by grand jury, is void. Durrant him self believes he will never be hanged, and tells his comrades in prison that be fore many months he will walk forth a free man. The Bell Estate SAN FRANCISCO. June 26.—Judge Coffey has issued a citation directing George Staacke and John C. Maxwell, the surviving executors of the estate of Thomas Bell, to show cause next Wednesday why the order for a family allowance to Mrs. Teresa Bell, widow of the dead millionaire, should not be mod ified.

ALL ENGLAND Is Proud of the Colossal Celebration AMERICAN SOCIAL SUCCESS MAKES THE VISITORS FEEL COM FORTABLE The Old World Nations, Especially Germany, Anxious Concerning America's Foreign Policy Associated Press Special Wire. LONDON, June 26.—The Britons' co lossal pageant, one of the greatest the world has ever seen, has been completed without a contretemps to mar Its success. This has been an anxious week for those in authority, but the whole scheme for the celebration of the queen's Jubilee was largely planned, carefully carried out, and has been, a triumph for the management and an object lesson ln unity for the hosts of guests. It Is an open secret that the Prince of Wales was among the hardest workers. Not a single step of importance was taken without his approval, and much of the praiseworthy work done is directly due to his Initiative. A notable exception to this state of affairs was the religious service outside of St. Paul's cathedral, which was the queein's idea. When It was suggested it filled the officials with dismay, and disaster was feared as a re sult of the rush of sight-seers, into that narrow neck part of London; but the courage and resource accomplished the queen's wishes, and the task of managing the hosts, numbering a couple of million people, within that exceedingly limited space, and amid scenes of extraordinary excitement, was. carried out ln a marvel ous manner, thanks to the skill of the police and their strategy ln preventing the possibility of rushes, and: also thanks to the admirable demeanor of the crowds. Unqualified and generous ap proval of the festivities has been be stowed by the press and people of all nations and communities. The evident disposition of the whole world to share in the jubilee and extend It has caused: the liveliest satisfaction, and added to the general rejoicing. The naval review was a fitting termination of the week's ceremonies. AMERICANS' SUCCESS •A pleasant feature of the week was the Americans' complete success. The United States' special embassy was easily the most prominent and the most honored throughout the celebrations by all. It is almost needless to add that Col. John Hay, the United States ambas- sadc-r, is equally gratified. Both he and the rest of the regular embassy have done all in their power to insure Mr. Reid's success. The feeling In the press Isindioated by the editorial of the Standard of Friday, which said: "It would be a most un gracious omission to forget to offer sin cere thanks to all foreign countries that have participated in the jubilee. They have added materially to the pleasure of the queen and her people by their never-to-be-forgotten kindness. So far as the Americans, are concerned, we be lieve they are almost as pleased and proud as though the jubilee were their own." In short, nothing is too good for Amer icans ln London today. The British are thoroughly pleased with the way the Americans opened their houses to Jubi lee day. The design on the residences of Mr. Whitelaw Reid, Col. John Hay, Mr. Henry White, secretary of the United States embassy, and J. M. Car ter were identical, being the familiar "V. R." surmounted by a crown and the dates "1837-1897." On either side of the central figure of the design was a large American shield surmounted by the eagle and with thir teen stars in the field. These illumina tions were paid for by the United States government. At the state banquet on Monday at Buckingham palace, Mr. Whitelaw Reid led in Princess Victoria of Wales; on Tuesday, Mr. Reid l lunched! at Bucking ham palace, sitting between Prince Christian of Schleswig-Holstein and the Duke of Cambridge. On Wednesday both Mr. Reid and Col. Hay had boxes at the opera, but Mr. Reid himself was a guest in the royal box. When Mrs. Reid arrived at the opera she was escorted by a royal equerry to her box. Gen. Nelson A. Miles, U. S. A., Mr. and Mrs. Ogden Mills, accompanied her. Mr. and Mrs. Reid on Thursday gave a luncheon to Lady Lytton and Lady- Emily Lytton. The former is the widow of Mr. Reid'© British colleague at Paris and is now lady in waiting to the queen. The same evening Mr. Reid dined with the Prince of Wales at Marlborough house, and went later to the state party at Buckingham palace, where he was joined by Mrs. Reid, who was escorted by a military equerry and by Rear Admiral J. N. Miller, U. S. N., Gen. Nel son A. Miles, U. S. A., Mrs. Miles and Mr. and Mrs. Ogd'jn Mills. On Friday, besides attending the lord mayor's luncheon to the royal princes and others at the Mansion house, Mr. Reid and Mrs. Reid dined with the secre tary of state for war, the Marquis of Lansdowne, in the famous sculpture gallery of Lansctowne house, at which banquet the Prince and Princess of Wales, Col. Hay and Mrs. Hay, almost all the special envoys and foreign princes now In London, the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough, the Marquis and Marchioness of Londonderry, the Marquis and Marchioness of Salisbury, Earl Rosebery and Lord and Lady Wolseley and other persons of high rank were present. Later* in the evening the guests, in cluding the Prince and Princess of Wales, attended the brilliant ball given in an immense marquee by the Duke of Westminster. Mr. Reid today was pres ent at the naval review on board the vessel assigned to the use of the diplo matic corps, and Mr. Reld's children were the guests of Rear Admiral Miller on board the United States cruiser Brooklyn. Col. John Hay gives a grand dinner on Tuesday next ln honor of Mr. Reid, Gen. Miles andi Admiral Miller, at which the i guests will Include the Marquis of Sails bury, tha British premier; Mr. A. 3. Sal four, Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, Sir Wil liam Vernon Haroourt, th* Rt. Hon Her bert Henry Asqulfh and many others ' equally prominent. Mr. Hay has deelded to give a big evening party at his residenoe on July 14, in honor of the Jubilee, and the affair has awakened the liveliest interest ln the American colony. AMERICAN POtgCY The Spectator publishes a long lead ing article on Emperor William's re marks as recorded by the Paris corre spondent of the Times on Monday last and then cabled to the Associated Press. The correspondent reported'a conversa tion affecting to represent the views of the emperor, ln the course of which, speaking of his anxiety as to the future ot Europe, he said that he did not fear Chinese ambition or the anarchists, but he did fear the expansion of one of the great powers and the Intervention of the United States in the affairs of the Old World. The Spectator says: "This Is so Im portant that we would give much to know precisely what Is ln the kaiser's brain. The kaiser has displayed at times singular gleams of Insight. The facts of the moment appear to Justify his enigmatic saying. The Americans are exhibiting a tendency to depart from their policy of seclusion and interfere very strongly In the affairs of the Oldi World." Continuing:, the Spectator Instances Venezuela. Samoa and Hawaii, adding: "And they are apparently going to In terfere with Spain in the most peremp tory manner. If there Is any truth in the account of Instructions given to Gen. Woodford, the United States In tends to immediately off er an ultimatum to Spain by practically refusing her per mission to suppress a revolt ln her own dominion. The last event seems to have very badly impressed' the kaiser, and the emperor's remarks throughout dealt with the perils which It was his object to avert. Doea he propose himself to avert American.intervention ln the af fairs of the Old World'? If he does, President McKinley must be cautious ln his diplomacy, for the German and Spanish fleets combined would be more than a match for any fleet America could produce without an effort which would tax the resources of the union, not ln money but in ships and sailors. The union is irresistible only ashore, and Cuba would, be a poor reward for a great and dangerous sea war." It is not certain Germany has not a motive for such an alliance, for the United States, with Monroeism, is nearly as much in the way of the powers desiring to expand as Great Britain. Overcrowded Europe finds that the for eign policy of the United States debars them from colonizing South America with surplus population. But the natur al place for Germany is in South Brazil, and now that the government is In a po sition to direct the tide of emigrants west, we should not be surprised to see the already powerful colony suddenly and amazingly enlarged. MINOR MATTERS Prof. C. M. Galey of the University of California, has taken up a temporary residence in London for the fulfillment ot an Important literary work. He has been entrusted by his publishers, Mac- Millan & Co., with a new edition of Eng lish dramatists which is to be a com plete series of English drama from its beginning to the time of Sheridan. The editing of the works of the various authors 19 to be entrusted to several pro fessors of the American and British uni versities, to be chosen by Prof. Oaley, and he will supervise the work and write the introductions to several volumes. He has secured leave of absence of the university for fourteen months and will spend much of his time at Oxford, Cam bridge and the Scottish universities. The prince of Wales has started a new type of hat, based on the fluffy beaver, with the broad curled brim of many years ago. The design for the monument to b« erected to the late Lord Lelghton ln St. Paul's cathedral, where the late presi dent of the Royal academy Is buried, has been submitted to the prince of Wales and approved by his royal highness. The memorial is to be in the form of an altar tomb supported by emblematic, figures and will be executed by Thomas Brock, R. A. The committee, of which the prince of Wales Is chairman, an nounces that the monument win cost £2500, of which amount all but £100 has been subscribed. SLOSS SUED Stock Transferred to Accomplish Il- legal Purposes SAN FRANCISCO, June 26.—An Im portant opinion bearing upon the con tracts which are held to be against sound morals and public policy was ren dered by the supreme court today ln the case of Max Wasserman, as president of the Alaska Commercial company, va Louis Sloss. The latter corporation was engaged in the sealing industry in Alas ka and held certain leases from the gov ernment of the United States and from Russia. As these were soon to expire and a renewal was necessary the de fendant Sloss represented to Wasser man that in order to enable him to in terest certain persons high in authority and influence in the matter it was nec essary for him to have a certain amount of stock at his disposal. Wasserman thereupon gave him 400 shares of stock, but Sloss refused to return them, and suit was instituted to compel him to do so. The trial court gave judgment of non-suit against Wasserman. The su preme court holds that the action was not one to enforce a contract in any sense and therefore reverses the Judg ment and orders a new trial, as the stock was not used for the illegal pur pose for which it was transferred. Wine Growers' Meet SANTA ROSA, June 26.—Two meet ings of wine growers were held In this section today, one at Sebastopol and the other at this place. The meeting at this place was well attended and was called for the purpose of discussing the wine question and hearing the report of the county committee which waa to the ef fect that 10,000 tons of grapes had been subscribed to the California Winemak ers' corporation by Sonoma growers, an increase of 1500 tons. The Sebastopol meeting wasan educational one and was called by G. N. Sanborn and D. L. Litch field. The speakers told the growers of the benefits to be derived by standing by the corporation and it Is understood that most of those in attendance at the meeting will do so.
