VIDED FOR ENLISTED MEN Jack* from the Fleet Overstay Shore Leave In Order to Enjoy Good Time In Los Angeles By Associated Press. SANTA BARBARA, April 28.—There were no fixed features on Santa Bar bara's entertainment program In honor of tho Atlantic batleshtp fleet today, the officers and men being largely allowed to pursue their own ways. Many of the men went to Los Angeles to spend the day and will overstay their leaves, which expire at 1 a. m. The amusements offered the blue jackets In Santa Barbara are naturally rather meager owing to the size of the city, and consist largely of flying horses, shooting galleries and a large variety of catchpenny affairs brought here for the occasion. Dancing on the canvaa covered as phalt on the Ocean boulevard each evening Is tho only picturesque feature of the bluejackets' entertainment. They seem to enjoy It hugely, however, and when available supply of eligible girls gives out they dance with each other. It is no easy task to provide partners for a thousand or more danc ing sailor men. Party for Officers For the officers today there was a garden party attended by personal in vitation in the afternoon and this evening a dance at the Country club A number of luncheons and tea parties on the battleships were given to the Junior officers. At intervals today the fleet was en tirely lost to view in fog banks, which blew In from the southward. All morn ing long tho fog bells on the sixteen Rhips wore kept going at a lively rate. During the afternoon the sun shone for several hours through the mist, but toward evening the heavy banks low ered over the ships again. The officers of the fleet report many men as overstaying tlielr liberty, due to the large number that have gone to Los Angeles instead of remaining in Santa Barbara. The sailors had a rare good time in Los Angeles and count the three and one-half hour journey from here to that city as noth ing when In search of amusement ashore. In Charge of Patrol Lieutenant Commander W. Carey Cole, navigating officer of the Kansas, loft tonight for San Francisco, whither he has been ordered to take command of the naval patrols to be established In that city during the stay of the fleet in that city. This police duty is one of extreme Importance, and Com mander Cole was selected for the post by personal direction of Admiral Thon"U. He Is an^officer of ability and oxoVilent Judgment. The system of landing armed patrols from each of the ships of the Atlantic fleet at every port visited has proved a most suc cessful means of handling any delin quents among the men. Their respect for the authority of their own officers and thlpmates Is supreme. Com mander Cole is sent In advance of the fleet's coming to San Francisco to map out districts and plan the extensive •work of the patrols there. The-fleet leaves here Thursday morn ing. A "dance of the flowers" in honpr of the officers Is the feature of tomor row's program. , BLUEJACKET 6 OBJECT TO SANTA BARBARA PRICES With only four hours between trains In which to enjoy the time a large number of sailors from the fleet sta tioned at Santa Barbara yesterday, came down to Los Angeles. "Four hours In Los Angeles is worth a century in Santa Barbara or any other city," said one of the sailor boys of the Missouri! yesterday. "Santa Barbara isn't anything like this town. When wrs were here last week there wasn't anything too good for us and If we didn't see what we wanted they came around and handed It to us. We didnt even have to ask. "At Santa Barbara they certainly are making the most of the fact that the boys were paid off Saturday. One oyster stew cost me a dollar, a glass of beer is ten cents a throw and about everything else is in proportion. When we were down here our money was no good. Whan we wanted a glass of beer we walked into a saloon and got it, and the barkeep threw a fit if we of fered to pay. When we walked into a restaurant and ate a meal, our mon ey was counterfeit when we faced the cashier. We never were treated so swell In our lives as we were in Los Angeles, and we never were so badly used anywhere as they have been treating us in Santa Barbara. The townspeople are all right, although they didn't provide any entertainment for the men of the fleet, but the trades people, especially the lltle merchants, are getting all they can out of us."

NEW YORK, April 28.—As early as 8 o'clock hundreds of prlesis and digni taries and thousands of men, women and children were on the way to St. Patrick's cathedral to Join in the im posing thanksgiving: service in honor of the completion of 100 years of Catholic progress in New York. While the services did not begin until 11 o'clock the cathedral was filled to overflowing long before 10 o'clock. Seats were reserved for numerous pub lic officials and the members of the general committee of laymen, but after these had been seated it was first come first served, and the ushers had a dif ficult task in making room. Before the service began there were fully 6000 persons gathered in the beau tiful edifice and as many more were outside. Headed by a deacon bearing aloft a processional cross, the clergy and pre lates who participated in the ceremony marched in solemn procession from the cathedral college in Madison avenue to the main entrance of the cathedral in Fifth avenue and thence up the long aisle into the spacious sanctuary. First in line were the leaders of the church In America, Archbishops Ireland of St. Paul, Glennon of St. Louis, Keane of Dubuque, Moeller of Cincinnati, O'Connel of Boston, Blenk of New 1 Or leans, Ryan of Philadelphia, Quigley of Chicago and Farley of New York. They were followed by their head and America's representative in the sacred college, Cardinal Gibbons of Bal timore. The very last and the chief personage in the celebration, since he was cele brant of the mass, was Cardinal Logue, primate of Ireland. The mass began promptly at 11 o'clock. Cardinal Gib bons preached a long sermon, in which he reviewed the history of the Catholic church in New York from Its earliest days until the present. A message was received from Pope Pius X congratulat ing Archbishop Farley and the 'Cath olics of New York. Message from Pope The pope's message follows: "To our venerable brother, John M. Farley, archbishop of New York: Ven erable Brother—Health and apostolic benediction. The recurrence of the memorable events in the history of my diocese is at all times an occasion of joy, and the one hundredth anniversary of the foundation of the archdiocese of New York, whose de^iopment has been extraordinary, must call for unusual rejoicing, because the constant increase in the harvest of 100 years bears ample testimony, that the highest expectations have been abundantly fulfilled. "It seems proper in view of the con soling results that on the solemn cen tennial celebration of the see of New York we should renew our fervent supplication to God that ho may vouchsafe to it a more plentiful sup ply of his celestial gifts and more co pious resources to accomplish things even more laudable. "For these reasons and as a mark of special honor, it affords us great pleas ure to tender you and to your devoted flock our heartfelt congratulations. For assuredly you and your loyal brethren have rendered many distinguished ser vices to the church and to the state, and we cherish the hope that these, our words, may be an incentive to per severe in the vigilance and zeal of which you have thus far given such signal proof and thus bring glory to America and stand as an example for the entire world. "As an augury of heavenly favor and an evidence of our good will, wo most lovingly impart to you and to your faithful people the apostolic benedic tion.

RUEF JURY COMPLETED TRIAL OF INDICTED BOSS TO BEGIN TODAY PLEA FOR CHANGE OF VENUE LIKELY TO BE DENIED Associates In Parksids Franchise Dsa! Depended Upon to Testify Against Former Political Dictator of San Francisco By Associated PreM. SAN FRANCISCO, April 28.—The jury to try Abraham Kuef, former political boss of San Francisco, on one of 117 indictments charging him with bribery, was completed this afternoon, after both sides had exhaupted their peremptory challenges. The taking of testimony will be be gun tomorrow afternoon, the morning session of court being taken by Judge Maurice T. Doollng of San Benito county, who is sitting for Judge Frank H. Dunne, in hearing arguments on a motion made by counsel for the de fense for a change of venue on the ground that there exists such a state of prejudice and bias In the public mind In this city that Ruef cannot have a fair and impartial trial. To Submit Files of Paper* In support of this motion counsel for Ruef will introduce the flies of all the daily papers in Ban Francisco and one in Oakland, from October 15, 1906. to data. In addition to theso volumes of the daily papers, which it is alleged have worked up such a state of public opin ion against Ruef that it is impossible for him to obtain a fair trial here, counsel for Ruef will offer in evidence several scrap books filled with hun dreds of articles and many cartoons, the files of all the weekly papers in this city, one printed in Los Angeles and two eastern magazines, containing articles and comments upon the brib ery-graft prosecution in San Francisco. It is generally believed that Judge Dooling will deny the motion. The work of Impaneling the Jury which is to try Ruef consumed nine teen days and over 600 names were drawn before twelve men acceptable to both sides were obtained. The particular charge upon which Ruef is first being tried Is the offering of a bribe of $1000 to Jennings J. Phil lips for his vote upon the Parkslde troHey franchise. The following twelve men will pass upon Ruef's guilt or innoc*ice: John L. Vermilye, hay and grain dealer. Valentine Franz, contractor. F. J. W. Anderson, contractor. James E. Lennon, lime and cement dealer. S. R. Crooks, real estate. William M. Leverone, butcher. John Koeneman, grocer. Edwin Mohrig, automobile supplies. Patrick Connolly, retired saloon keeper. Isaac Penny, contractor. Robert Trost, contractor. W. F. Swift, lumber dealer. Immediately upon completion of the Jury Judge Dooling, after expressing his regret for the necessity or advisa bility of removing it from all possible Influence, ordered that the twelve men be locked up and not allowed to sep arate until the end of the trial. This brought such a vigorous protest from some of the Jurors, Swift asking the court "whether that was constitution al," that Judge Doollng finally relented and conceded that the Jurors might be at liberty until tomorrow afternoon in order that they might arrange their business affairs. Uirtbsen to Testify Assistant District Attorney Heney, who will conduct the prosecution of Ruef, declined to state who would be the witnesses against Ruef, but it has repeatedly been intimated that among them will be G. H. Umbsen, a promi nent real estate man; Joseph Green and W. I. Brobeck, the latter a well known attorney, all three of whom were intedested in the Parkside trol ley franchise and were Jointly indicted with Ruef, having, according to the prosecution, testified before the grand Jury that they paid Ruef $25,000 to get the proposed franchise, with a. prom ise of $15,000 more. From the questions asked by Ruef's counsel during the examination of Jurors It is b Meved that Ruef will claim the money was a fee paid to him as an attorney. On the other hand it has also been asserted that his codefendants will testify that Ruef "held them up," controlling as he did the board of supervisors. Ford Jury Protests The Jury in the Ford case today pro tested to Judge Lawlor at the length to which the trial was being extended and the inconvenience they were suffering In consequence. Through the bailiff in whose custody they are when not in the court room they sent a message to the Judge asking that night sessions be held, as their business interests were suffering in their prolonged absence. Judge Lawlor took up the matter at the close of the session today and told the Jury that he was satisfied with the progress of the case and that he thought it might work a hardship on the attorneys and stenographers to or der night sessions, but, as a compro mise, he proposed an evening at the theater for the Jurymen. At this the Jury disagreed, as some of them wanted to go for a walk, think ing fresh air was what they most needed. ■» The final settlement was that those who wished should walk and those who did not should remain at the hotel in charge of a third bailiff. The testimony today was almost en tirely a repetition of that given on former trials. Hot Day in San Francisco By Associated Press.
