NATIVE SONS Arrangements for Next Week's Festivities NO BICYCLE TOURNAMENT WILL BE HELD UNDER THEIR AUSPICES The Success of Admission Day Parade Now Assured—The Chamber of Commerce Reception The general committee of the Native Sons of the Golden West held its weekly meeting to perfect arrangements for the approaching celebration of Admission day ln the Henne block last r.ight. The first matter considered by the committee was the report of the com mittee on donations, which reported that a certain proposed bicycle tournament to be held at Athletic park on September Bth had been announced as being under . the management of the Native Sons. The I •emmittee desires the fact to be mad-. known that they have no connection whatever with the bicycle tournament and that no donations should be mad' by the merchants of this city to this tournament under the false belief thai they are helping the Native Sons of the Golden West. The Native Son* will leave the city on September 9th at 11 a. m„ and therefore cannot be at Athletic park on the after noon of that day. The grand marshal of the parade Frank Sablchi. made a very encourag ing report in regard to the parade. The members of the Grand Army of the Re public will parade with the Native Sons and other local organizations* will also Join. The success of the parade is now assured. Letters were read from San. Diego, Redlands and Anaheim parlors informing the committee that their mem bers would be present in force. The three local parlors have all uniformed their members for the occasion. It was decided to decorate the Native- Sons' hall, at 317 South Main street, and to hold open house for the reception of Native Sons on September 9th, before the parade. There is a possibility of the. assistance ln the parade of the Uniform Rank of Foresters. The committee is also trj-ing to Induce the uniformed Odd Fellows to turn out. Captain F. Parmentler has been ap pointed marshal of the first division of the parade, which will consist of the military contingent. General Johnstone Jones will be marshal of the second di vision, which will consist of the Native Sons. Ralph J. Domlr.gupz has been appointed marshal of the third division. Four more aides have been appointed— Messrs D. I. Botiller., D. Smith, S. A. D. Jones and G. L. Tuttle. The line of march will not be announced until later.

The Marine band will furnish the instrumental music and the Apollo club will furnish part of the vo cal music. All patriotic peopie are in vited to be present at the reception. W. T.

Brown of Many Aliases One of the smoothest swindlers of the gentler sex that has operated in thiseity for some time has, it appears, just made her escape. The woman traveled under several aliases and was known by differ ent acquaintances as Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Lavelie and Mrs. Guenther. She was either widowed or married to suit the circumstance. She is German, speaks with a slight accent and claims to have come from Cripple Creek, Col. Her principal victim here is a man named Fred Carlson, whom she in veigled into purchasing a half Interest in a lodging house the same day that she left for parts unknown. Carlson paid $150 for his interest, and now that he is sole proprietor of the place, is kept busy trying to explain things to a dozen or so furniture dealers, grocerymen and the like from whom the woman had pur chased supplies on credit. After fur nishing the house on her nerve she ad vertised for a partner, and in this way Carlson happened to get taken in. A roomer in the place, an old German phy sician, Is also out $25 on his new ac quaintance. An assortment of Jewelry and clothing has disappeared from the trunk of another roomer named Mrs. Younger. There is no clew to the wo man's whereabcuts. The detectives-have been notified and are looking for a Ger man woman of large frame, stooping shoulders, hard hands and an honest face. Mascot Meal Ticket He had been a waiter in the little res taurant and he was now out of a job. A customer whom he had waited on formerly had a talk with him, and find ing he was in hard luck, bought a meal ticket, and leaving it with the proprietor of the restaurant, said: "Let Nick eat off this until he catches on." To the for mer waiter he said: "Now. you use this ticket, Nick, until you get a Job, and if there's anything left on it when you catch on, we'll leave that for the next hard luck man that strikes the joint with a straight story." Nick agreed, and he ate up 85 cents worth of the ticket be fore he obtained employment. A couple of days after that the man Who had paid for the ticket sent a man to the restaurant keeper, and, through a note, put him on the "eating list" by! way of the meal ticket. This second man ate away an even dollar before he quit, and then the restaurant, man selected a man who came ln and put up a story bearing evidences of truth. Man No. 3 got away with $1.15 worth, and then got j a Job ln a factory. The ticket was a mas- j cot. Nick sent a fellow over Just to see If anything was left on the ticket, andl this fellow ate 45 cents worth, and was then offered and accepted a position as' driver of an ice wagon. This left Just five cents worth on the ticket, and the other day a bleary old fellow came Into the restaurant and the proprietor hand ed him out a piece of apple pie and a cup of coffee, and punched the devoted meal ticket for the last lorte remaining nickel. Its work was done.—Chicago Chronicle.

TOOK CARBOLIC ACID MRS. POLLOCK WAS DISCOUR AGED AND WANTED TO DIE But Was Discovered Before the Poison Took Effect—She Had Just Se cured a Divorce Discouraged and disheartened, Mrs. Delia Pollock attempted to end her life yesterday morning by taking a large dose of carbolic acid. She was discovered before the poison had taken effect and emetics were administered. Later she was removed to the receiving hospital, where Police Surgeon Hagan worked over her for several hours, and finally pronounced her out of danger. Mrs. Pollock was married to Frank J. Pollock in the Plaza church about three years ago. The union did not prove a happy one, and it was only a few weeks before Pollock deserted his wife. When a child was born he made no effort to support either the little one or Its mother, and she was compelled to make out the best she could with the assist ance of friends. A Mrs. Wallace, who keeps a lodging house at the corner of San Fernando and Ann streets, gave Mre. Pollock a home until she could find something to do elsewhere. Not long ago she brought suit against her husband, who is an employe of the Citizens' Transfer company, for divorce. Maintenance of $5 per month for the in fant child was asked. The case was taken under advisement by Judge York, and Wednesday he granted the decree, awarding her the custody of the baby. It is not thought that Mrs. Pollock knew of this decision when she took the poison. Yesterday morning Mrs. Wallace sug gested to Mrs. Pollock that she make an effort to secure employment She as sented to this, but said that she would first put her baby to sleep. She took the little one into her room and did rot re appear. Mrs. Wallace was surprised at her long absence and went into the rcom to see what was the matter. The un fortunate woman was lying upon the bed apparently asleep. On a bureau stood a bottle labeled "Carbolic Acid," with about two and a half ounces gone. Mrs. Wallace sent her little boy to call the police and then began poring emetics down the woman's throat in an effort to save her life. The husband of Mrs. Pollock was work ing across the street In the Southern Pacific freight yards, and was notified that his wife had taken poison. He walked over to where she was lying un conscious, and after a glance remarked that she was dead and returned to his work. The child is still being cared for by Mrs. Wallace. A Curious Convention "I have heard of all sorts of queer re unions, but there was one down in Geor gia the other day that was absolutely unique," said P. F. Cross of that state at the Raleigh. "It was a reunion of horse-swappers, and a jolly gathering it was. There were fully 1000 in attendance, and It looked to outsiders as if a big political convention was in progress. Politics, however, was strict ly tabooed, and nothing went but horse talk. Of course the members fetched along from one to a dozen nags of all sorts and conditions, and the swapping of beasts was the main attraction during the reunion. A constitution and bylaws were adopted and a committee appointed to draft a code of ethics. It was thought the civilization of the age had reached a point where equine exchanges should be conducted along stricter lines of hon esty than had hitherto characterized such transactions. It was argued, and the sentiment was overwhelmingly com mended, that no man was fit to join in the future reunions who would try to put off on another a horse whose vis ion had departed or who wasrepresented to be sound when the facts were the other way. There is no doubt in my mind that from a moral as well as social standpoint the meeting was a great suc cess." —New York Tribune.

NEAR TO DYEA A Los Angeles Lad Bound for Klondike THE TRAIL TO SHEEP CAMP THE DYEA TRAIL AT PRESENT SEEKS EASIEST At Least a Thousand People Seen on the Trail in a Pew Days—Many Are Discouraged E. G. Russell, a Los Angeles boy, Is with a party of Southern California pros- pectors bound for Klondike. The fol lowing Interesting letter from him has reached The Herald: ROCKY CAMP, near Dyea, Aug. 17.— We arrived here on the 12th inst., with one tent and baggage. Our supplies should have come on the next steamer, which would have been the City of Mex ico, but of course you have heard of her sinking, which will delay us a few days. We expect to get our supplies from the City of Topeka, as we were told she would carry the Mexico's freight. She is due on the 18th or 19th. We have an option on some horses, and Intend to go oveT the Dyea trail, which at present is far the best. There are a few getting over the White pass. In time It will be the best route. Mr. Ford and myself went over the Dyea trail as far as Sheep camp, aud found it a very hard trail. Men are packing from 50 to 200 pounds on their backs; they can only move from one-to two miles miles every camp, an<d keep that average up until they get over the summit of the Chllcoot pass. We bought lumber at Port Townsend tor a boat, and as soon as we arrived here we built It. The lumber and freight cost us $17.50, and we built it in two days. They charge $10 per ton to take goods from Rocky camp to the Dyea river, which is only two miles, and $10 per ton to have goods taken up the river as far as canoe navigation. So you can see what we have saved by our boat, as we will have about 5000 pounds. The Rock, where we are camped. Is three and one-half miles from Dyea, and nine miles from the head of canot navigation. We have to land our sup plies into a boat and go with high tide up the river until the current becomes so strong that we have to take ropes and tow it to the head. The river is very shallow where the current runs so strong and the rise and fall of the tide is 21 feet The way they unload from the steamer is by running a big flat scow alongside, and the feright is loaded on it, and then towed over to the Rocks. Then we formed lines, and the freight Is passed up the line until unloaded. Then each man's goods Is assorted. The weather is as fine as I have ever seen, even in California. There lsplenty of grass in the summer, lots of timber, and warm rain on this side of the pass, but no rain on the other side. On our trip ud the trail we must have seen over, one thousand men packing their goods'; and you won't travel fifty yards without passing some one going one way or the other. There are a great many getting 1 discouraged and selling their outfits very cheap. When they see the hard work that is before them they lose their cour age and want to return. All our party are feeling well and cheerful, with lots of hard work before us E. G. RUSSELL. Beauties of Peterhoff Peterhof, where the German emperor and empress were entertained by the emperor and empress of Russia, is the most splendid and the most attractive of all the imperial county seats, and it is an ideal summer residence.

It stands on a cliff overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Finland, with terraces leading down to the seashore, from which there are magnificent views, commanding both Cron*'tadt and St. Petersburg. I The palace is splendidly decorated and' furnished, and it is crammed with ob jects of art of all sorts and dese-riptions, including a most interesting museum of historical relics and curiosities. The gardens, which were originally laid out in imitation of Versailles, contain the finest fountain-s in Russia, and many or namental buildings, Including a number of picturesque imperial "cottages," which are named Marly, Montplalslr, Alexandra, Hermitage, Felicite, and so forth. There are canals and many wat erfalls, including the famous golden cas cade which flows down a long flight of gilded steps —London Pelican.
