Among the passengers was Governor I. J. Sanders of Louisiana, who discussed the accident. "We had experienced two days of heavy weather," he said, "capped Mon day morning by a hurricane in which observations were impossible. "Neither the captain nor the pas sengers felt much alarm, however and most of us had retired when, shortly before midnight Monday, the Antilles struck sandy bottom with a shock that brought everybody up in a minute.

GREAT PORTOLA CELEBRATION TO OPEN IN NORTH SAN FRANCISCO READY FOR IMMENSE FETE IMPRESSIVE PROGRAM BEGINS THIS MORNING Warships of Various Nations at An chor in Bay Prove Chief Attrac tion to Out-of.Town Visitors [By Associated Press.] SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. IS.—With ardor undampened by the rain which began today, this city is awaiting the comihg of Don Gaspar I'ortola, who is due to land here tomor row morning. When the impersonator of the first Spanish governor of California comes sailing up the bay, which his prototype discovered, he will be saluted by the warships of six nations. With the act ual ceremonies of the festival yet to be- begun, the city has already taken on the carnival air, and the rebuilt portion is thronged with the pleasure loving crowds that made these streets famous in the celebrations held before the fire of 1806. The warships in the harbor have proved the chief feature of interest for the out of town visitors, and the decks of the vessels have been crowded con tinually during the hours allotted to the public. All day excursion trains have been pouring their loads of humanity into this city until hotel men estimate that there are at least 150,000 visitors here for the festival. Many of the visitors have Journeyed to this city by automobile, and the ga rage owners report they can take care of only a few more cars. Decorations Intact The decorations have not suffered from the rain, which has been light. Market street, the main thoroughfare of the city, is profusely decorated, and at the Ferry building and the railway terminus elaborate courts of honor have been built. When the toast to Gaspar Portola ia drunk all over the world tomorrow, af ter the glasses are clinked the old Spanish "A la salud" will be raised by the celebrators in this city, and the carnival will be under %vay. Queen Virgilia has already issued a proclamation to her people to be merry, and most of the employers of this city have determined to obey the order, and at the same time extend recognition to the three years of hard work done by their employes since the fire, by clos ing their places of business while the actual celebration is in progress. With the expectation that the night celebrations will be the merriest part of the carnival, the committee has pro vided the greatest ilghting decorations ever seen during a celebration in this city. All the principal streets have been festooned with strings of incandescent lamps, and at the intersection of Mar ket, Third, Kearney and Geary 10,000 globes have been fashioned into the shape of a bell. This bell, with its lights in the Span ish colors of yellow and red, forms the most gorgeous feature of the decorative scheme of the carnival. SEN.

[By Associated I'ress.] PARIS, Oct. 18.—Count De Lambert, French aeroplanlst, just before dark tonight accomplished one of the most remarkable and daring feats yet cred ited to heavier than air machines. Starting from the aerodrome at Juvisy, he flew to Paris, about thirteen miles. After maneuvering over the city at an average height of 400 feet he as cended in gradually diminishing cir cles and passed several hundred feet above the Elfel tower. He then re turned to Juvisy. Thousands who watched De Lambert barely credited their senses when they saw the aeroplane, a tiny object, glid ing swiftly far above the tower, and the sensation created was more pro found even than when Santos Dumont circled the structure In his dirigible balloon In 1900. Count De Lambert was given a tre mendous ovation on his return to Ju- | visy. Orville Wright rushed forward I and wrung the hand of the aviator as he alighted, pale but radiant. He was led to the pavilion where his health was drunk, the crowd mean time cheering lustily and crying: "Long live Count De Lambert," "Long live Russia," De Lambert being of Russian extraction. The count held up his hand and shouted: "Cry long live the United States, for It Is to her that I owe this success." The aviator said that the only In convenience he suffered was from the throbbing of the engines and from dif ficulty increasing toward the end in the gloom. The time of the flight was 49 mm Utei and 39 seconds. The distance was roughly estimated a.t thirty-one miles and the height varied from 300 to 1300 feet. the- historical Incident of discovery 1b re-enacted.

Each officer accompanied Mr. '• Wright on three flights. Before the sun had risen the aero plane was rolled from its shed and, In what was virtually a dead calm, Mr. Wright and Lieutenant Humphrey made a flight of "more than eleven minutes' duration. The second flight, with Lieutenant Lahm in the pupil's seat, was the, longest made at the signal corps aero drome, lasting for eighteen minutes and thirty-seven seconds. In both flights Mr. Wright permitted the lieutenant to operate the machine unaided, The third flight was made in a slight breeze, lieutenant Humphrey again accompanying Mr. Wright.

"For the final disposition of my old body," says the letter, "my first wish is that it be cremated. If inconvenient or expensive, then lay me away In what is known as potters' field. But In no event; under any condition, am I to be buried in any cemetery where they buy and sell lots or charge a rental of any kind for keeping the lots in condition. Any evasion of this request will meet with my hearty disapproval and for which there will be no forgiveness either in this life or the next. "If my life service has not been sufficient for the community to furnish a place to rest this body when I get through with It, the,n let them feed It to the more merciful and more kindly coyotes. Do not spend one cent for a lot, directly or indirectly. I want no landlord calling me up from my rest to pay him his rent." The body will be taken to Denver for cremation. Mr. Foster was a brilliant speaker and writer. He took part In the Populist movement In Kansas and in reo'tit years has been identified with the. Socialist party. -SINGLE COPIES: DAILY. *<■: SUNDAY.

OcKNTs HARBOR PLEDGE MADE BY MAN FROM SEATTLE CONGRESSMAN PROMISES TO WORK FOR APPROPRIATION IS MEMBER OF RIVERS AND HARBORS COMMITTEE Takes First Look at San Pedro and Tells Loa Angeles He Will Help Out In the Fight i(J HAVE a 9r»at admiration for the way the people of Los An -* geles are trying to help them selves in the construction of this har bcr and I believe in helping those who help themselves. "I intend to do all in my power to, help in getting an appropriation from congress to make the improvement. You citizens of Los Angeles can take that as a pledge." That's what Congressman W. E. Humphreys of Seattle had to say in his comfortable quarters at the Hotel Alexandria last night. He also ad mitted that he is a member of the riv ers and harbors committee of congress and declared that he didn't see any reason why Los Angeles shouldn't have a port of entry, and a real one— although he had been surprised during the afternoon. "Here's the whole story," said the congressman from Seattle as he re arranged his coat over his undershirt at a late hour last night and settled down for a real talk on the harbor. "I'm glad I went down to that har bor of yours today," he said, after he had rearranged his coat and then de cided that his undershirt didn't make so much difference to a reporter. "I've heard a good deal of talk about this harbor. A good deal of the talk wasn't very favorable. That's the truth. The harbor was knocked and knocked and knocked pretty hard." "Who started you on this trip to the harbor?" he was asked. "Congressman Macl^achlan," was the instant reply. "No matter what else you say about this trip of mine to the harbor—and I'll keep my pledge— the only man that can swing that ap propriation is MacLachlan. Take it from me and I know. If there is any man who is trying to do the work and can swing it, it is MacLachlan." In the party that visited San Pedro yesterday were Congressman and Mrs. Humphreys, Willis H. Booth, president of the chamber of commerce, A. P. Fleming and George H. Stewart of the harbor commission and the Pasa dena congressman. "And we had a splendid time," de clared the Seattle man after he had recounted the names of his compan ions. "I don't see why we can't have a fine harbor at San Pedro. I know now that the harbor is a certainty. You citizens, by voting ten millions for its completion will make the harbor, and I think the government should lend a hand and help out. At any rate, you have my hand and vote for a real harbor. "I believe that in five years Los An geles will have a fine harbor and be a real seaport. I have a great ad miration for the way that the people of Los Angeles are trying to help themselves in the contsruction of this harbor and I believe in helping those who help themselves. I intend to do all In my power to help in getting an appropriation from congress to make the improvement." STOCKMEN ARRAIGNED ON DOUBLE MURDER CHARGE CHEYENNE, Wyo., Oct. 18.—George S:ibin, Thomas Dixon, Ed Eaton, B. Brink, M. A. Martin, Charles Ferris and William Keyes, prominent stockmen of I Big Horn county, were placed on trial today at Bason, charged with the mur '■ der of Joseph Alemanda and Joseph p:mge, sheep owners, and Joseph La zier, a herder. These men were slain in the Spring creek raid on the night of April 2, when herds of sheep were killed and maimed and the bodies of the men burned In the camp wagon. The arrest of the men came as the result of an investigation started by the Wyoming Wool Growers' associa tion. The grand jury brought true bills and all the accused man were arrested. An attempt to cause the escape of some of the men after they had been n leased on bail was frustrated by re arrest. An International aspect has been giv en the case through the activity of the French government, inasmuch as La zier, one of the victims, was a French subject. It is not expected that a jury will be completed for several days. CHICAGO MINISTERS ASKED TO ASSIST WOMEN WORKERS CHICAGO, Oct.
