CATHOLICS OF ALL NATIONS WALK IN MIGHTY PAGEANT Hundred Thousand, in Gorgeous File, March Hymning; Half Million Voices Join PROSTRATE TO FIERY CROSS The Host Taken in Pomp to Re pository at Montreal—Eu- v charist Congress Ends MONTREAL, Sept. 11.—A religious pageant as rich In devotional emotion as In sacred Imagery, and as orderly in behavior as It was diverse In national ity and huge in size, closed today the twenty-flrst International Eucharlstlc congress held this year for the first time In Canada. ' Visitors from the United Stateß were especially Impressed with the magni tude, splendor and reverence of the procession, which marched four miles through the city streets, the host at Its head, to Mount Royal, above the city. A modest estimate is that there were 100.000 In line and that 500,000 viewed it. The city is so crowded tonight, that L'dO.OOO are sleeping on the slopes of Mount Royal, In Dominion square, and In other city parks. It took the brilliant file four and a half hours to pass the city hall, and though It began to move at noon from the Cathedral of Notre Dame It was 7 p. m. when the papal legato, Cardinal Vincent Vannutelli, placed the host, housed in a golden monstrance, on the altar of the repository built for It at the foot of the mountain. TARDIXAI, AT HTCAI> OF PARAT>K The cardinal mflrchcil at the head of the procession himself, carrying t\v host the entire distance. Slowly nnrt majestically, hymning Its progress like pilgrims of the crusades, the groat pageant followed. Organized choirs sang In Latin, French and English. Bands scattered hero and there ren dered devotional music. When the crowd knew the air It Joined. In swell ing tones and mingled languages. The procession had been arranged to demonstrate the unity and universality of the Catholic, church. It started from Notre Pame with a preliminary de tachment of mounted officers, firemen and papal zouaves, followed by a choir of 200 male voices. Tlio state, the church and the army were well repre sented, and there were, envoys from the ntlnelonary bodies in foreign lands. A profound silence stole over the spectators when the Sixty-fifth regi ment, recruited from French-Canadi ans of Quebec province, was seen ap proaching in full dress uniform. The government had wished to give the regiment an opportunity to act as the guard of honor to the host, which it does at each recurrence of the fete Dieu, hut a technical difficulty had arisen by reason of the presence of a mission from fhe papal see. The city ■was much surprised thnt it hnd hern smoothed over at the last moment. The official order of the colonel was for the regiment to attend a "church celebra tion." KNIGHTS OF rOU'JIBI'S IJBAn Preceding the regiment marched the Knights of Columbus, 1500 strong, headed by Bishop Fallon of London, Ont., the Catholic club of New York with Its chaplain, Fathor Taylor, who was Heartily cheered, and then squads of Greeks, Poles, Hungarians, Lith uanians, Ruthuantans, Chinese, Indians from an Iroquois reservation and the long file of religious congregations. Two priests clad in native costumes marched among the Chinese. They were greeted with special acclaim. After this gathering of the nations followed Dominicans and Carmelites, Jesuits and Benedictines, Redemptor ists and Passionist Fathers of the Blessed Sacrament, Paulists, Eudists, members of the Holy Cross and Holy Ghost and a group of fifty Trappist monks. Behind the orders strode 1000 parish priests and missionaries in the white surplices, and behind them another 1000 vested as for mass. Then came the prelates. They walked in single file, seventy bishops in cap and miter and fifty archbishops, their chaplains at their sides in black cassocks, each holding a corner of a voluminous cope. As the prelates drew near the mul titude grew suddenly hushed, for they knew trikt the sacrament was not far behind. A moment later the ponder ous boll on the east tower of Notre Dame, known for its voice as "The Great Bourdon," began to thunder out its message that the papal legate was leaving the cathedral bearing the mon strance. Companies of the Sixty-fifth regi ment marched to the front and to the rear of the huge canopy, which moved slowly on rollers. Holding the mon strance in toth hands, which were hid den in a humeral veil, walked Cardi nal Vannutelll under a canopy. His head was bared and as the host passed the people fell on their knees. CLAI> IN SCARLET ROBES Behind him, in scarlet robes, walked Cardinal Gibbons &nd Cardinal Logue, X)ritnate of Ireland, both attended by bishops, the archbishop of Montreal, the papal chamberlain and lay mem bers of the Catholic church who held pontifical decorations. Conspicuous among- them were Gov ernor Pothier of Rhode Island and his staff, as well as a numerous train of Canadian dignitaries and officials. So long had it taken the procession to unfold its length that It was dusk when the legate reached Fletcher's tiMd, at the foot of Mount Royal. As he approached the repository, myriads of lights suddenly broke out on the face of the mountain, and over the re pository Itself, a great cross, visible for miles around, flashed into brilliance. It had been requested that no attempt should be made by the procession to kneel when the benediction of the Eu iliarlst was to be given, but with one motion the immense assemblage fell to its knees as the bearer of the host, standing on the mountain sanctuary, held aloft the golden monstrance. At the termination of the blessing the multitude sang the to deum and the (Continued on X'«»e iwt> LOS ANGELES HERALD INDEX OF HERALD'S NEWS TODAY FORECAST For Los Angelet* and vicinity Generally cloud?

"" $57,500 IN GOLD BULLION STOLEN Lead Substituted for Precious Metal in Transit from Alaska to Seattle SEATTLE. Sept. 11.—Gold bullion valued at $67,500. part of a shipment of $17n,000 from the. Washington-Alaska bank of Fairbanks. Alaska, to the Dex ter-Horton National bank of Seattle, on the steamship Humboldt, was stolen in transit and lead substituted in the strong box that had contained it. The gold when it left Fairbanks on a Yukon river stftamer for Dawson and White Horse, was contained in three, wooden boxes, and was in the care of the Alaska Express company. When the boxes were opened by the Canadian customs officers at Dawson the sold bars were found to be as stated in the express company papers. The boxes were opened again at the United States assay office in Seattle last Friday noon, and one contained pigs of lead. The seals of the box were intact when it reached the office. The gold was insured by the express company. The boxes were received at the as say office Thursday morning and re mained there until the agents of the consignee arrived next day to check up the ingots. It is supposed the gold was stolen on the Yukon steaifter be tween Dawson and White Horse, or on .the steamer Humboldt, between Skag way and Seattle. There would have been small oppor tunity for robbery in the assay office, or in the short railroad run from White Horse to Skagway. The gold weighed 250 pounds, and the disposal of such heavy plunder must have, required time and preparation. The gold was in the purser's cabin, and it is not customary on the gold shipments to take elaborate precautions against robbery. Detectives working on the case have made no arrests and say they have no clew on which to work, the robbery was very much like one four years ago. In this case $69,000 consigned to Seattle by the Washington-Alaska bank of Fairbanks, over the Yukon rlver-Skag way route, was stolen from a wooden strong b6x and lead substituted. The theft was committed by Bobby Miller, night watchman on a Tanana river steamer which was carrying the gold from Fairbanks to the Yukon steamer that was to convey It to White Horse. Miller concealed the gold in his state room, got It back to Fairbanks and secreted It so well that, after his ar rest on suspicion, the owners of the bullion were glad to make terms with him. He was promised a short prison sentence If he would return the gold, and he produced $50,000, alleging the other $19,000 had been stolen from him. United States Assayer Calvin E. -Vi las said tonight the federal authorities were absolved from al! responsibility by the vault being opened and locked by the telephone company electrically. The box arrived at the office with the seals unbroken, was locked up and tiie next day brought out with the seals intact. The government has no con cern in the matter and will make no effort to capture the robbers. The Humboldt sailed for Skagway before the robbery was discovered and is now at sea.

Shortly after ward the Honolulu's well on section 31, 32-23, about 200 feet distant, began flowing and at once caught flra from the Amerlean Oilfields', well. Two hundred men were rushed to the scene, but they were unable to cope with the great flaming torches thati towered 300 feet high, arid they de voted their energies solely to protect ing other property in the vicinity by plowing furrows. After burning for three and a half hours the wells sanded up and stopped flowing. Within a radius of little more than half a mile from the burning wells were five or six other gushers, Uowlng at rates varing from 1000 to 25,000 bar rels a day, and the Imminent danger of all these taking fire through the medium of the gas they gave off caused the utmost apprehension in the west side oil fields and among oil men in this city. Besides the two der ricks destroyed, the sump hole of the American Oilfields' 56 burned. PATTERSON'S WITHDRAWAL SCORES STRANGE TANGLE NASHVILLE, Tonn., Sept. 11.—With the withdrawal of Governor Patterson from the gubernatorial race in Tennes see after having been nominated by the regular wing of the Democratic party, and with a •sonvention of independent Democrats scheduled for Wednesday with most of the delegates pledged to the indorsement of B.

With Patterson out of the race, many express doubt as to whether the Inde pendent Democrats can hold their vote (or the Republican candidate, although Hooper has given out a statement In which he laid he expected indepen dent Democrats to carry out their part of their agreemant and it was "hardly possible to make new alignments at this late day."

Pardee, eldest daughter of former Governor George C. Pardee of California was almost instantly killed today. All of the others of the party of Which Miss Pardee was a member, were thrown from the machine when It turned turle, but the Injuries they re ceived were slight. Miss Pardee was suffocated to death, the run of the tonneau having rested across her cheat, preventing respiration. Accompanied by Mrs. Herman J. Sadler, Miss Anita Thompson, W. B.

QcENTS CITY TEARS TRACK FROM HUNTINGTON SAN PEDRO GRANT Chief of Police Galloway Persor ally Directs Work of Taking Up the Rails CARS ARE PUSHED FROM SPUR Southern Pacific Railway Attor ney Watches Ousting of Co. from Harbor Concession Southern Pacific tracks no longer span the Huntingdon fill at San Pedro, They were torn up by the city of Los Angeles yesterday. Two shifts of city laborers worked yesterday afternoon and last night under the direct super vision of Chief of -Police Galloway, and when they had finished the rails were ripped up and the ties cast asldo. The track tearing was a little sur prise that City Attorney Shenk has been arranging for the last few days. It was carried out with such secrecy that the Southern Pacific knew noth ing of what he intended to do until work actually began yesterday after noon. Word was sent to Frank A. Carr, attorney for the Southern Pacific, when the first gang arrived on the scene yesterday, and he jumped into his automobile and broke the speed ordinance to get to San Pedro. But when he arrived he had no injunction, probably because It was Sunday and the courts were not in session. In fact he was armed with nothing more dan gerous than a package of cigarettes, and these he puffed complacently while he watched the operation. He took the matter good-naturedly and even made some helpful suggestions. It had been planned to tear up tho tracks Saturday, and W. M. Hum phreys, Inspector of public works, hal a gang of men ready to hurry down to San Pedro at the first word from Mr. Shenk. But Mr. Shenk and City En gineer Hamlin went down to San Pedro and found eighteen flat and dump cars anchored on the track, with the switches turned above them and locked so that the cars could not be moved off. This presented another phase of the problem and It was found necessary to delay for a time. But it had become known that the laborers were being held for the work, an 1 the city attorney was afraid to delay very, long for fear of a possible Injunction. yesterday ■ morning ha called Mr. Humphreys over the phone and pro posed that the work be done In the afternoon. Mr. Humphreys was thor oughly agreeable and instructed- his chief deputy, William Laws, to assem ble a gang of men. In less than half an hour Laws had twenty-five men at the city hall and sixteen of these were armed with picks and crowbars and sent to San Pedro. . . When the laborers arrived Chief Oal loway. City Attorney Shenk, City Kn gineer Hamlin, Harbor Engineer Vin cent and Mr. Humphreys were already on the ground. RAIXOWAI TAKES CHARGE ! The hardest part of the work was to get the cars off the track so It could be torn up. Back In Indiana Chief Galloway had been superintendent of a railroad, and he personally took the locks oft the switches and turned them, replacing the railroad locks with police locks and keeping the keys himself. He stationed patrolman along the line so that no switch' engine could bo backed down on the track, and then he uncoupled the cars on the tracks to be . torn up. Teams were hitched to these cars, and with the teams pulling and such dignitaries as the city engi neer and the city attorney pushing be hind and the teams, one of them driven by Billy Laws, the cars were pulled from tie spur track. Harbor Engineer Vincent took off his coat and acted as brakeman, releasing the hand brakes that had been set on the cars. Every one did something, and it was hard manual labor, too, not just stand ing around and bossing the job. When the cars had been moved off, the chief, with his coat off, took direct charge of the laborers, even wielding a crowbar himself where It would do the most good, and under his super vision the rails were ripped up and the ties tossed over toward one side of the roadbed. "Now, if he had just put those rails on that last flat car he moved out we would not have had to come back here and get them," moaned Attorney Can*. • "This is sure dry work, and I would like to have a drink of water," said the chief. "The Southern Pacific has a pump over on its Blip, and if you want to send one of your men over you are welcome to all the water you want," answered Carr, with a hospitable wava of his cigarette. "Can we really have some Southern Pacific water?" asked the chief. "Sure," responded Carr. "You are welcome to anything the Southern Pa cific has. We might as well offer It to you, because if you want it you ara sure to take it, anyhow." IIAMJUX ON THE JOB • City Engineer Homer Hamliu was on the job to show the workmen just where the city's land began, so there would be no mistake. This land, which has come to be known as the Hunting ton concession, begins at the very tip of the high bluff on Tim's point. It was not until a few days ago that the engineer discovered that the railroad tracks were on the city's land. No engineering data existed on the lines of this concession, and, the city did not declare it forfeited until August 2. About a week ago the engineer put a corps of men to work running lines, and when those were completed it was found that the Southern Pacific spur ran out on the city's land between 100 and 600 f»et. As soon as this became known to City Attorney Shenk he planned the coup he executed yesterday. Ha wan • only awaiting a favorable opportunity to put it into commission. Ten policemen are kept on guard at the fill to see that the railroad noes not relay its tracks or do something else that may interfere with the city's rights, for it is on this land that the city intends to build Its municipal wharves, and it is considered one of the most valuable pieces of frontagu in the entire harbor.
