pionship. The army Y. M. C. A. has
donated two handsome cups, which go
to the winning and second teams of the

One of the remarkable things of the
camp is the excellent health of the
command, there being practically no
one in the hospital. Another happy
feature is the absence of serious acci

Tawney in Minnesota," ha said. "I find
the situation in Colorado Interesting.
The initiative and referendum are
good, but a direct primary law with a

my mind the ideal primary law is that
of Oregon, where all candidates are
nominated in direct primaries and no
convention is held at all."
"Who's going to be the Republican

Heney was asked.

SACRAMENTO, Sept. 26.—The proc.
lamatlon calling together the state
legislature in extraordinary session
will be issued tomorrow or next day
from the governor's office and the date
will be fixed as Monday, October 3.
Private Secretary to the Governor E.
Forest Mitchell, Secretary of State
Charles Curry, State Controller Nye
and State Printer Shannon leave for
San Francisco tomorrow, where there
will be a conference with Attorney
General Webb, Chairman Alexander
of the state board of equalization and
two attorneys representing the mer
chants' exchange.
This conference will decide upon the
language to be used in the call, and
this will be confined strictly to the
words necessary to remedy the defect
in the constitutional amendment No. 1.
The proclamation will be so explicit
that nothing besides the actual insert
ing of thci needed words will be In the
call, ar.d this will be all that can bo
liken up at the extra session.
The fact that the secretary of state
must get out the printing to county
clerks' and Governor Gillett must pub
lish the call for the November election
makes the time very short umler the
law, and for this reason the confer
ence tomorrow will be along lines to
Shut off any debate upon anything ex
cepting the actual Insertion of words
which have been left out. It is the
purpose of the state officials In ths
conference to so arrange the necessary
resolutions and bill that not more than
half a day session will be. needed to
conclude the work of the extra session.
Governor Gillett will not leave Eu

Lure Artist's Eye
The man who invented the fable
about a pot of gold lying at the foot
of the rainbow might well have con
ceived this pietureeso.uo fancy after a
stroll down Broadway, as it looks this
week. Surely never did any rainbow
show more Illusive hues, more vary
ing shades, nor more subtle blendings
than do the windows In the big Broad
way stores. The rainbow tints are
all accompanied by the most re
markable effect in gold tinsel, em
broidery, net and spangles, until the
entire street resembles one vast area
of softly glistening- colors well over
spread with priceless metals and
Certainly the first Fn.shion show
may be called a tremendous success,
if the street display, alone la to be
considered. Never before have the
fashions been so decorative, and the
merchants along the rainbow path
have spared neither time nor expense
to make this show one which every
observer may enjoy, and to which the
visitors and residents may point with
Beginning with Coulter's store, near
Second street, and continuing- to Ninth
street, every block on Broadway con
tains marvels of the modiste's skill
and the milliner's art, and both sides
of the street, and shops of every kind,
have taken the cue and are displaying
their most attractive goods.
One window at Coulter's is devoted
to novelties in materials, and perhapH
one of the handsomest things is the
crepe velvet which Is shown here in
a variety of shades. A delightful as
sortment of printed and embroidered
chiffons and crepes help make this
window one which is full of valuable
suggestions, and the men's furnishings
nre set forth In attractive manner.
Pajamas in soft silken hues: dressing
gowns of heavy, handsome materials,
and smoking jackets, rich and smart
looking, are all shown here, with the
tie*, handkerchiefs and socks that are
customarily expected in such an array.
One of the handsomest of the cos
tumei shown in this shop is of orchid
gray satin, heavily embroidered and
embossed, and another dainty evening
frock shows black-beaded net with a
bolero jacket over a pink silk slip
which is embroidered elaborately with
gold and trimmed fit the he*n with a
deep pink silk fringe.
An elaborate and useful treatment
of an Indian shawl is also shown in
this window.
The Boston store shows a dinner
gown of pale gray satin with an en
tire overdress of embroidered net in
which mother-of-pearl bands are used
with remarkable effect. A sash of
black panne velvet finishes the foot
of this overdress, beneath which the
satin foundation falls in a slight train.
A number of ravishingly beautiful
-scarfs are shown in this window, too,
one in particular of gold net having
enormous roses in soft shades printed
on the fabric and outlined with the
gold thread.
A blue satin gown shows through
black embroidered net, upon the hem
of which, heavily worked, sunbursts
glenm in their gold and Jeweled beauty.
A broad band of gold bullion finishes
the hem of this overdress, and sable
fox adds its richness to the splendor
of the toilette. .One window shows
lavender shades, and one of hats and
novelties ia mott attractive, with a
tempting array of gauze ribbons, nets.
gilt and Jeweled fans, pearl collars
and fringes.
A pattern garment of black jet
beads over a gown of salmon pink
satin is without doubt the most strik
ing exhibit in the beautiful windows
of the Vllle <le Paris, and in the. name
exhibit are jeweled embroideries, ™-
plecementa forming bodice and skirt
trimmings and bands, and passemen
teries of magnificent value. Cleopatra
might 'my the display which this
store affords, and the buckles, rings,
combs, handbags and coiffure adorn
ments are as brilliant and novel as
they are beautiful.
A piece of FalHley pattern chiffon
over White is one of the loveliest of
the materials to be seen In this win
dow, although striped and dotted nets,
embroidered velvet! and HRtln-bor
dered crepes each add lustrous beauty
to the .scene. A fascinating bandbox
looking temptingly alluring with its
gold embroideries and pastel shadlngs.
from which tumble scarfs, laces and
evening bags for milady's adornment,
is quite the piece de n of one
window. One fur set demands atten
tion. It comprises muff and collar,
and is made of fur, shirrtngs of gold
tissue and frills of fine hire. She were
surely a lucky mnld Or matron who
may d«ck herself in these exquisite
creations of millinery-
Soft greens of the woodland furnish
the color scheme for the window dec
oratlons at the New Tort store, and
her* are shown some fifteen or twenty
imported gowns, suits and costumes
before, which the most critical man or
woman munt pause to admire.
One of the simples! and most ef
fective of these is a Doucel creation
,',,■ black chiffon heavils embroidered
to the depth of eighteen Inches in
oriental silk, with tiny buttons to har
monize, outlining the sides of th«
skirt, and similar embroidery at the
throat and sleeves of tho bodice. An
enormous hat with long- black plumes
completes this costume.
Paquin-is represented In a palp yel
low velvet, the corsage and front
panel heavily embroidered, and mair
niflCent heavy lnce forming tho bodice
and sleeves. Velvet shoulder straps
with the gold embroidery outline the
shoulders and a band of gold ribbon
from which depends gold fringe orna
ments the hair, over which is placed
a large hat of cloth of gold.
A tunic made of crystal heads on
hlprk net surmounts a gown of soft
pink messaline. Brilliants worked
through the beads make a beautiful
outline for the decolletage and shoul
der straps, and a sash of rose color
ties with a biff bow at the knees, from
beneath which falls a short train of
black chiffon over the pink satin. This
frock is from Francis, and is without
doubt one of the most beautiful of the
entire display. *
At the Broadway department store
the windows are decorated in autumn
leaves nnd palms, and a novelty shown
here are the petticoats of accordian
pleated, chiffon. These are in plaid
patterns as well as the more beautiful
broche designs, and the tops are of
softest mcssaline. Two stunning:
gownfl shown here are of black velvet
with bodice embroidered in semi-pre
cious stones, and a creation in mauve
moire satin embroidered in the same
shades with old net in the bodice nnd
yoke and a hat with drooping brim
and overshadowing plumes to complete
the color scheme.
A girlish frock of soft shirred chif
fon over blue satin is gathered in at
the waist with three rows of Persian
ribbon and the lower part of the skirt
is finished in the same way to simu
late the hobble effect. Ono window
shows a beautiful array of brown
broadcloths, velvets, laces, gauzes and
chiffons. Lingerie and corsets in novel
design and attractive array are also
shown in one of this store's windows.
Black and white seems to have been
the favorite effect destreC by the win
dow dresser at the Fifth Street store.
White frosted leaves and vines and
soft, white, gauzy screens make a
glittering background for the cos
tumes of black and -white which are
displayed. One of the handsomest of
these is of embroidered black net over
white chiffon. The bodice is embroid
ered with coral and a sash of the same
hue outlines the waist. A scarf of
black, heavily embroidered in jet, com
pletes this gown, while a coat of sim
ilar texture and embroidery is near at
hand. Another handsome frock car
ries out the same effect in a tunic of.
black satin falling over a double
flounce of creamy, honlton lace. The
bodice is of the honiton lace also, with
trimmings of black satin and gold. A
hat in this same window is of panne
satin with enormous rosettes of the
material and white plumes and facing.
Bullock's windows carry out an au
tumn scheme, even in the colors of the
gowns, and dresses and materials alike
show all the shades of gold, russet,
reddish brown and the more somber
wood shades of the same color. Each
window is embellished with a hand
some oil painting which continues the
tones attained by the decorator and
the frames In bronze, bright or dull
gold furnish further lighting to the
effects in the windows.
Furs, ribbons, chiffons and laces
mingle with the richer materials for
gowns, suits and cortumes. Pony coats
for my lady in her automobile, travel
' ing rugs and hats, veils and evening
coats may be seen here in these same
rich shades. One of the most notice
able frocks shown was a street suit in
which dull, brown broadcloth was en
livened by panne aatin. The broad
cloth fell in a lons, straight tunic to
about ten Inches from the ground, a
border of heavy embroidery finished
this at the hem and tiny buttons on
the satin outlined the long side front
seam and simulated a placquet. The
bodice is built in kimono lines of satin
broadcloth and fur iind the long sleeves
and underskirt of satin were both
edged with the fur. A hat in two
shades of brown with willow plumes,
shading from golden brown to a deep
hue, complete this frock, which found
favor with many observers yesterday
and will undoubtedly be copied In
many materials for the winter.
Many particularly beautiful hats
were shown In the windows of this
store, and a noticeable fancy was for
the cretonne and lapestry effects In
crown and brim.
A Ktreet suit of wido wale corduroy
and a brown velvet and broadcloth
viniting Kown with big muff and col
lar of mink w>re two other particular
ly handsome and useful showings made
by Mullock's.
Silverwood's store put forth a brave
array, both in tho Broadway and Sixth
street Windows, and royal blue, velvet
and bearskins alternate in emphasiz
ing the decorative leheme. Smart win
ter suits for men show a prevailing
brown tune, and for tho little men a
tempting array of reefers, leggins, tam
o'shanters and blouse suits may be
geen. One of these windows has an
exhibit of fancy .ests which is at
tractivo both in coloring and materials,
and man ln n'B beßt arrttv wlll become
almost decorative this winter.
