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."

By Associated Pr»M.
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.
"Given at St. Peter's, Rome, the 9th
day of April, 1908, in the fifth year of

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.

NEW YORK, April 28.—There la

the sudden death of Deputy Sheriff
Joseph Bell, captain of the squad that
takes prisoners to Sing Sing. In
eleven years he took 15,000 prisoners
from the Tombs prison and delivered
them to the various penal institutions
to which they had been sentenced.
He had the reputation of never hav
