intense, but the death rate was much
lower than in the north.

SAN FRANCISCO, July 10.—All tha
Christian Endeavorers now assembled
within our gates are here for a purpose,
and that purpose ie not one of recreation
and pleasure. That all the assembled
Endeavorers take a deep andi pensive
Interest in the proceedings of the con
vention Is manifested by the attendance
at the daily sessions in the big con
vention halls. With them all Is en
thusiasm. Never has San Francisco been
called upon to entertain such a throngof
people as has gathered together for the
1897 convention. There have been reviv
al meetings and religious gatherings and
all sorts of conventions, and there have
been some pretty big political gather
ings in San Francisco, but the Chris
tian Endeavor convention is a revela
Profiting by their experience at the
previous sessions of the big convention,
whan they came too late to get'within
hailing distance of the Mechanics and
Woodward's pavilions, many Endeavor
ers were up with the coming of day
break, determined to be among the foT
tunate ones In securing seats. All tha
roads seemed to lead to the headquar
ters at Mechanics' Pavilion. By 8 o'clock
they came pouring in from the east,
west, north and south, on foot and In
street cars, until the broad entrances to
the big frame structures were congested
with humanity. The weather was quite
cool —Just cool enough to bring back tha
color which had 1 temporarily been driven
from the cheeks of thousands of pretty
young women by the hardships of a
transcontinental journey. Nine o'clock
saw all the 9000 seats filledi, while sev
eral thousand persons formed a fringe
of humanity about the outer edges and
packed the aisles, until the police and
fire departments cried "Enough" and
barred the doors to further arrivals.
The song service was first on the pro
gram. The vast throng joined' in the
stirring Endeavor hymns with delight
ful effect and with a volume of sound
that carried 1 their voices to the crowds
in the streets, many of whom joined
in the songs of praise. In spite of the
fact that the committee hadi arranged
the most aUractlve programs for the
meetings at Woodward's Pavilion in
order to draw as many people as possible
to that hall, the crowd seems to gravi
tate towards the headquarters at Me
chanics' Pavilion, with the result that
thousands are turned away at every
session. The latter hall has been made
so attractive with decorations and
booths, conducted by hundreds of hand
some young women, something after the
fashion of a charity bazaar, tnat all
want to enjoy the privilege of seeing and
hearing all that Is to be seen and heard.
Notwithstanding the size of the vast
assemblage, the arrangements at the
pavilion are all that the most exacting
could' wish, and all that has been done
for the comfort of the visiting legions
reflects credit upon those who have
given their time and attention to the

in the arrangements of the great Inter-
national gatherings are now receiving
the praise and commendation of 20,000
delighted visitors from every State in
the Union and' from nearly every alien
land where the influence of Christian
Endeavor is felt.
No definite figures have been given out
today as to the total registration, but it
is understood that something over 22,
---000 have appended their names to the
roll of attending delegates. Nineteen
more trains yet to come is the latest anJ
nounoement by Secretary Baer, and the
