SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 24. — The
splendor of the celebration of the Golden
Jubilee of California, which began this
morning, is not likely to be surpassed
for many a year to come. The entire
State has gladly responded to the ap
peals of the miners, pioneers, Native
Rons and Daughters, and from now until
the close of the carnival week San Fran
cisco will be the Mecca towards which
all travel west of the Sierras will be
turned. Nor can the line be drawn at
the eastern border of the State, for
SUTTER'S MILL,
Where the Great Discovery Was Made
from Nevada, Utah and the country
as far east as Denver men who first
found fortunes in the placers of Cali
fornia have already returned here to
assist in the exercises commemorative
of the fiftieth anniversary of the dis
covery of gold by Marshall at Colima,
near the old fort erected by, General
Sutter. But the participants in this
week of gaiety are not confined to the
old-timers. It Is the younger element,
the children of the men of '49, who by
their enthusiasm and monetary contri
butions have assured in advance the
success of one of the most unique and
characteristic demonstrations ever pro
jected In any part of the Union.
When the Calaveras county miners'
band arrived here last night on a belated
and overcrowded visitors' train It was
met at the foot of Market street by
Tom Lane of Angels, Marshal of the
miners' division, and by W. Honold,
President of the Association of Cala
veras county. Two large busses were
in waiting and conveyed the musicians
to the Palace Hotel. There, in the great
court they played Rosey's Handicap
March and J. O. Casey's Dominant
March before an admiring audience, In
which was the Executive Committee of
the Golden Jubilee, in honor of which
the serenade was given. Marching from
the Palace Hotel court, the miners vis
ited and serenaded the various news
papers.
With the rising of the sun this morn
ing the celebration of the fiftieth anni
versary of the discovery of gold in Cal
ifornia, known as the Golden Jubilee,
was heralded by the booming of the
guns at the various forts which line the
shores of the bay at the entrance to the
Golden Gate. The salute commenced
with a welcome of twenty-one guns from
the big 12-inch guns at Fort Point. This
was followed in quick succession by the
guns at Fort Mason, Alcatraz and Angel
Island.
Though rather too cold to allow of
standing still in the early morning, the
weathrer was bright and bracing, and
as the day progressed it became much
warmer and the conditions were per
fect when the hour for the big parade
arrived.
THE PARADE
Punctually at 10:30 o'clock, one of the
most Interesting parades ever seen In
the State marched through the streets,
which were gaily decorated with flags
and bunting, and thronged with people
from every part of the State. At least
fifty thousand strangers poured into
the city last night and this morning and
half as many more from the towns across
the bay swelled the crowds from this
city along the line of march.
Market street, from the ferry to Van
Ness avenue was packed on either side
and that part of It in the vicinity of
the Baldwin Hotel, where a mammoth
arch had been erected across the street,
was a dense mass of humanity. Every
window along the line of march and
many roofs of buildings were pressed
into service by the sightseers.
The first division ot the parade con
sisted of the United States trocrps from

the Presidio, Angel Island, Fort Baker.
Fort Mason and Benlcia Barracks,
headed by a platoon of police. Grand
Marshal Mosse and his aides and Lieu
tenant-Governor Jeter and staff. In ad
dition to the regulars, this division in
cluded the Third Brigade of the Na
tional Guard, a battalion of the Univer
sity Cadets, cadets from the Mt. Tamal
pals Military Academy, the United
States Life Saving Service, the execu
tive committee of the Jubilee, Mexican
War veterans, Mayor Phelan and city
officials In carriages, and the Regents
of the State University.
The second division consisted of the
officers of the day, California Pioneers,
Companions of James W. Marshall and
other early pioneers, and tbe members
of the California Miners' Association.
In the third division were the Exempt
Firemen and their old apparatus and the
present Are brigade with its modern
paraphernalia, a striking contrast.
The fourth division, a strikingly pretty
one, consisted wholly of Native Daugh
ters, each Parlor represented and dis
tinguished by Its uniform.
The Celtic and German societies com
prised the fifth and sixth divisions; the
League of the Cross Cadets.seventh; sev
eral thousand school children the eighth;
the Young Men's Institute, the ninth',
and the Italian societies, the tenth.
Then came the Veteran Guard of Cal
ifornia, the Commercial Travelers and
other organizations.
The twelfth division was one of the
most striking of the whole parade. It
consisted of several hundred Chinese
warriors in costume, and a small bat
talion of Chinese native sons.
The three remaining divisions included
the Foresters, Old Friends, a Wild West
show, and a long train of carriages and
citizens on foot.
A notable feature of the procession
was the participation of Chinese and
Japanese residents of this city. The
former had a striking float, attended by
gorgeously attired men on foot; several
well-filled carriages and a band which
rendered oriental music with ear-pierc
ing effect. The Japanese contingent dis
charged day fireworks at intervals along
the line of march, filling the air with
ghost-like forms of monster animals and
gigantic birds.
The public school children made a
splendid display, and the Native Sons

A FOOL YELLED FIRE
SCARING THE CHILDREN OF A
Fire Drills Are All Right, But They
May Be Made Rather
Realistic
CHICAGO, Jan. 24.—Through an error
on the pa»f of b,jj unknown man. a panic
was caused this afternoon among the
1000 children in the Dore school on Har
rison street. Serious results must have
followed had not Principal R. M. Hitch
and teachers shown calmness and pres
ence of mind. For a long time Principal
Hitch has given his pupils a fire drill.
It was the custom in the school at times
for the principal to suddenly ring a
large bell, and every scholar and all the
teachers were carefully instructed In
what they must do in order that all of
them might reach the street in safety.
CAPTAIN MARSHALL
The drills had been discontinued for
some time, and the principal thought it
a good time to see how much the pupils
had forgotten. He accordingly rang the
bell suddenly. In one of the rooms con
taining the youngest children there was
some excitement, but it was quickly
checked by the teacher, who soon had all
of the children in line and passing rapid
ly through the door. The first boys to
reach the street began to cry "Fire!" af
ter their custom when the fire drills were
In progress, and a man who was passing,
thinking the building was on tire, ran to
the corner and turned in the alarm.
Before half of the pupils had reached
the street, engines and hose carts wer,.
tearing up to the building, the firemen
came piling into the school, dragging
along lines of hose. This and the puffing
of the engines brought a trifle too much
realism Into the drill, and there was
great excitement among the pupils. The
principal and teachers kept their heads,
however, and while restraining the ex
citement as best they could hurried the

A RICH STRIKE
Miners at Mokelumne Unoover a Good
Ledge
STOCKTON, Cal., Jan. 24.—News has
just reached this city of a rich strike last
Friday In the Roanoke mine property of
Geo. B. Sperry, George West and Dr.
Wallace of this city and Mr. Kittridge of
New York, and situated near Mokelum
ne Hill.
The strike was made at a depth of 300
feet, where a large body of rich ore was
uncovered. The ledge is ten feet wide,
containing considerable free gold, and is
free milling ore. Some of It will assay
$500 a ton and some as high as $1000.
It is the purpose of the owners to sink
200 feet on the ledge, and operations will
be begun at once. The mine in which tho
strike was made was formerly known as
the "Lamphere," and the present owners
have been operating it bu four years.
The twenty-stamp mill which had been
erected some time ago was burned re
cently, having been set on fire by incen
diaries. The mill was erected at a cost
of $20,000, and in view of the recent strike
it is highly probable that It will be re
built. In fact, the owners of the mine
are even now awaiting the arrival of
eastern capitalists with that end in
view. No stock is for sale, it being a
close corporation.
ECLIPSE PICTURES
Good Views Obtained by the Lick
Astronomers
LICK OBSERVATORY, Cal., Jan. 24—
A cablegram received at Mount Hamil
ton from Prof. Campbell, who is in
charge of the Crocker Lick observatory
expedition at Jeur, India, states that
most satisfactory photographs of the co
rona were obtained with three different
telescopes, one set with a telescope forty
feet long and two set with five foot and
three foot telescopes. He also reports
that the great equatorial extension of
the corona, which formed such a con
spicuous feature of the eclipse of Janu
ary, 1889, has again been photographed.
He also satisfactorily photographed
the changes in the solar spectrum with
the aid of one of the spectroscopes and
probably obtained successful photo
graphs of the reversing layer.
The vapors of certain incandescent
matter in the lower region of the sun's
atmosphere form a comparatively thin
stratum in a more elevated region,
called the reversing layer. Certain of
the rays of light from the lower regions
of the same atmosphere are absorbed
in passing through this stratum, and the
absence of these rays is indicated by the
presence of dark lines In the solar spec
trum. It is this reversing layer that has
probably been photographed by the Lick
observatory party.

THE BATTLESHIP MAINE, ORDERED TO CtTBAIT WATERS

THE FIRST
STEP TAKEN
Towards Intervention in
Cuban Affairs
THE MAINE SENT TO HAVANA
IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE NEW
POLICY
A Statement Is Made That the Action
Means Resumption of Friendly
Naval Relations
Associated Press Special Wire
WASHINGTON, Jan. 21.—Within 48
hours, for the first time since the insur
rection broke out in Cuba three years
ago, the United States government will
be represented in the harbor of Havana
by a warship. The decision to send the
United States ship Maine was finally
reached at a special meeting at the White
House this morning between the presi
dent, Secretary Long, Assistant Secre
tary Day, Attorney General McKenna
and Gen. Miles, and it is a striking fact
that, with the exception of the secretary
of the navy and the attorney general, not
a member of the cabinet knew of the
president's intention to take this radical
i action.
It is not denied, however, that such a
move has long been in contemplation, as
is evidenced in the following statement
of Assistant Secretary Day, made thia
afternoon:
"The sending of the Maine to Havana
means simply the resumption of friendly
naval relations with Spain. It is custom
ary for naval vessels of friendly nations
to pass in and out of the harbors of other
countries with which they are at peace,
and British and German warships have
recently visited Havana. This is no new
move. The president has intended to do
it for some time, but heretofore some
thing has happened to postpone it. Tho
orders to the Maine mean nothing more
than I have said, and there is nothing
alarming or unfriendly in them. The
Spanish minister here Is fully informed
of what Is going on, and, so far as I know,
has not made the slightest objection to
it."
Further, Assistant Secretary Day said
that Consul General Lee had not sent
for a warship. This statement shows
that the move was made deliberately
and that it would not have been taken if
there were serious apprehension of Its
results in Havana.
The general belief here, however, Is
that in Madrid, rather than in any Cu
ban town, is trouble to be looked for, if
there should be any misapprehension of
the purpose of our government In send
ing the Maine to Havana. The temper
of the opposition newspapers in the
Spanish capital has been threatening for
some time, and it may require the strong
hand of the news censor to repress ut
terances that would lead to rioting.
Admiral Sicard's orders were not made
public in their text at the navy depart
ment, but it was stated that the sub
stance of them was contained in tha
statement made by Secretary Long. The
orders were not sent directly to the
Maine for the reason that she is now at
tached to the squadron, and the naval
regulations require all such orders to
go through the superior officer. .
There is some question whether the
telegram reached the admiral before he
sailed with his squadron from Key
West for Tortugas harbor. The belief
is that it did not, and this will make lit
tle difference in the program, inasmuch
as the telegram will be sent to the ad
miral by one of the torpedo boats or by
some other means of conveyance. The
details of the Maine's movements are"
believed to be left for the arrangement
of Admiral Slcard, but It is thought
that the ship, which put to sea with
the squadron, will return to Key West
before going to Havana.
The German ships to which Assistant
Secretary Day referred in his statement
are the Charlotte and the Geyer, both
training ships and not of formidable
type, though one sufficed to settle hastily
the recent Haytlen difficulty. Their
touching at Havana is not believed to
be significant, as their cruise was ar
ranged in ail details last September, and
the same ships are due at Charleston,
S. C, early in February next.
The commander of the Maine, Capt.
Sigsbee, is a favorite in the navy depart
ment. For four years he was chief of
the hydrographic office, and by his en
ergy brought the office to a high stand
ard. He was lucky to get so Important
a ship as the Maine, considering his
actual rank, which is that of a command
er, but immediately he justified the de
partment's judgment in the selection by
running his ship straight into a dock In
New York harbor, in order to avoid run
ning down a packed excursion boat. This
was a display of quick judgment, nerve
