THE 'PACIFIC COMMERClJVi, ADVERTISER: HO-SOIUXU, DECEMBER 17, 1894.
BACHELORS WON THE DAY. Jledal and Team Shoot Among Sharpshooters, rr 1 ... a vet iiti i iiurifcn vnt-r Ham Won Twrnly - nin- Two members of the .Sh&rjhooter won gold Lars at the quarterly .-hoot, held Saturday afternoon. There were twenty-nine entries, and with the team shoot of benedicts and bachelors which followed, the boys had a long and interesting afternoon' work. The rating in the sharpshooters company is as follows: Thoe scoring from .1 to 39, win bronze bar?; from 40 to 41, silver bars, and from 4 and over, gold bars. The weather was all that could be a.sked except for the rather fitful wind that blew directly across the range. Secretary Corbett led the van with a 4'J, and when O. K. Wall followed with a 4", some one asked: "Who said the youngsters couldn't shoot?" Silver bars seemed to be the popular thing, fourteen members coming into this line with scores ranging from 44 to 40. Four members won bronze bars with scores of 33 and 3S. The first fifteen men averaged 42.33, and the first twenty men, 41.5. It was in the team shoot that the amusement came in. There were some big surprises in the score. The nerves of the bachelors seemed the most bus ceptiable to weakening influences, whether this was from sentimental causes is hard to say. When Secre tary Corbett and Commissioner Mars den make a clean miss, for the first time on record, the bachelors begin to think that there's something la the wind. However, with all the others keeping well up in the forties, the bachelors had plenty to spare. The last men to shoot in the match were Dodge and Hustace, and the two "Wall brothers. It was an Interesting com bination. .Lieut. Dodge started ofT with 24, in the first five shots, and O. K. Well was a close second. W. K. Wall gathered his bulls-eyes at the last, a did Hustace. Following is the score: BENEDICTS. I)odge McLean Hustace- - Peck .. Gibson. McVeigh Martin Casjidy Wilkinson Johnson.......... 4; 43 42 42 41 38 3.S as 20 BACHELORS. Wall, O. K 45 Damon 45 Wall, W.

Ex Judge raoync, of San .Josr. Kxplre on the tVHdr. The barkentiue S. G. Wilder, Cap tain Schmidt, arrived on Saturday, seventeen days from San Francisco. When she neared prt her flS wa3 flying at half-mast, and when she docked it was learned that one of the Easaengera died while the vessel was ut two days from port. The name of the deceased was S. D. Panyne. He was formerly a judpe at San Jose, Cal. lie had been ill for some time, and was ordered by his physician to take a sea trip. He left on the Wilder, accompanied by his daughter. When he boarded the vessel he was in a very weak condition. He did not improve as the voyage lengthened, and finally died on Thursday morning about 11 o'clock, after being unconscious for two days. Softening of the brain is said to be the cause of death. The body was encased in a box, which was made air tight by the car- F enter of the vessel, and kept on deck, t will probably be sent to San Fran cisco for burial. Miss Panyne is a guest of Dr. J. S. McGrew. THEOSOPHISTS FEEL HURT. Can't Coincide with Ideas Advanced by "15. TV." I wish to call the attention of the Advertiser readers to a statement made by "B. W'in the current num ber of the Diocesan Magazine. The writer says: "No one can become a member of the Theosophlcal Society without parting company with the Christian faith." One of two inferences is evident: either the worthy Bishop wished to malign Theosopby by an untruth, or be is misinformed on the subject he wishes to bring before the public For many ministers of Jesus' teaching are active members of that society, and the faith that Jesus taught is one of the strong pillars of Theosopby. Headers, investigate for yourselves, and you will find that Theosopby does not try to "pull down, but to build up." Public meetings are held at 100 King street, every Monday evening at 7:30. .You are invited to Investigate. C. A. Galloway. A BATTLE O.V THE KEXXY. A Diminutive Cook Acnalled by a Burly Sallerraan. The cook on the bark Charles B. Kenny was violently assaulted yester day morning by one of the crew. The victim of the assault, although a small man, made a good fight, but was finally overpowered by his burly assailant. The whole crew, including the officers, looked on while the fight was in progress, but did not lift a finger to stop it. It seems that the members of the crew are all Scandi navians, while the cook is a natural ized American. Yesterday morning two of the men started to give him a hammering, but the man ran aft and complained to the captain and mate, who went forward with him. When they reached the galley one of the sailors attacked him. The fight was a fierce one while it lasted. The Aldrleh Gnardlan Caae. One of the cases that will be heard by the Supreme Court at the present term, is the guardianship matter of William Aldrich. Judge Whiting appointed J. O. Carter to look after the bankrupt, but William did not like the order and appealed. Aldrich is in San Francisco by this time and the chances are that he is not worry ing about the matter.
