Contributions to the Chris

Still a Considerable Amount to
Be Collected to Insure
Its Success.
Every Cent Given to This Object
Will Be an Advertisement to
the State.
In twenty-five days the streets of this
City will be crowded with visitors, who
will come from the North, South, E-ist
and even the West to attend the great
International Christian Endeavor con
For nearly a year the local Endeavorers
have been planning and working to give
the Tisitors a hearty reception and enter
tain them in a manner worthy of Cali
fornia's proverbial hospitality. All who
attend the convention will pay their own
expenses while in the City, and it has been
estimated that from a financial point of
view the City will profit to the extent of
fully $500,000. It is impossible, however,
to estimate the value of the convention
from an advertising standpoint. The
committee oJ '97 have sent out nearly half
a million circulars, letters and posters ad
vertising the State, its wonderful climate,
flowers and fruits, offering a tempting in
ducement to the Eastern people who are
either feeling the effects of a blizzard or
being scorched by the heat. At present it
is hardly possible to look over tue adver
tising pages of any magazine without
reading of the special rate of $25 from
Chicago to California which is "open to
Thanks to the 2500 Endearorers who
have given their serv ces freely in order
to receive and entertain the visitors, the
committee of '97 will need only acout $25,
--000 to cover the expenses of meeting
places, advertising, si eskers, etc., just
about one-fourth the amount usually !
asked to entertain other conventions of a
simitar sin. Much of this amount was
pledged last year, but there is still a con
siderable sum to be collected and
pledged before the $25,000 mark is reached
and there is but little time in which to

The members of the finance committee,
who are canvassing for new subscriptions
or collecting those made last year, are
each provided with credentials signed by
Kolla V. Watt and C. Z Merritt, chair
men of the committee of '97 and of the
sub-committee on finance, respectively.
It is the wish of the committee that every
one who is asked to subscribe to this fund
should inspect these credentials as a safe

persons. They also desire that payment"
be made by check to the ordar of William

Diving for silver coins again furnished
fine sport for the youths at the Sutro
baths yesterday. There was a new fea
ture on the programme called a "walking
under water contest. " Each man had to
carry fifty-pound dumbbells on his trip
and bring these to the surface at the finish
to prove that he had not been swimming
instead of walking. The walking on the
water contest that proved a failure la-t

performance. Professor Baker of Aus
tralia performed aome difficult feats under
George Young of corner Butter and
Baker streets was painfully injured in ti e
park by a kick from a horse. The result
was a badly contused leg, but the hurt is
not dangerous.
Tbe Electrical Piano.
A piano on an entirely new principle is
announced from Germany. The strings
are stretched across the sounding- board
as in the ordinary piano, but the entire
hammer mechanism is absent. Instead,
the depressing of the key puts in action a
maenet, which automatically attracts and
relea-es the wire, this producing vibra
tions without the metallic stroke which
accompanies the son-id in the common
type. The resulting effect upon the tone*
is said to be very remarkable. The high
notes resemble those of an JEoiian harp.
The middle and lower notes are like a
'ceilo or an organ. It responds readily to
every variation in power and expression.
A note can be sounded for several minutes
without varying ir. quality. 80 radically
different from all existing instruments
are the effects that a new style of music is
heeded to bring out its capabilities.
The speed of a camel when on a journey
of considerable length rarely exceeds
three miles an hour, and the swiftest
dromedaries are rarely known to go faster
than a ten-mile gait; but this can be kept
up for twenty hours in the day and for six
or seven days at a time.
His Tenor Notes No Longer
Thrill Grace Church
Shortly Alter the Shaving
Edict He Fo'ded Up His
Vccil Score.
His Physician Mvised Him That It
Would Not Be Prudent lor Him
to Sing in Choruses.
"With whiskers or without, Frank Coffin,
who has delighted thousands with his
sweet roioe, will not sing again at Grace
Episcopal Church after the close of this
As Miss Carrie Owin, one of the execu
tives in the musical affairs of the church,
stated yesterday, "'Ours is a choir of men,
not boys," and it is upon that platform
that these sweet singers are said to stand.
It has already been told how a spirit of
mutiny rose when It was suggested to the
doz n members of the choir that their
notes would sound clearer from lips un
incumbeied with hair, and that an en
fo cement of the edict calling for a
smooth-faced choir might result in a gen
eral exodus from aboui the organ.
Be this as it moy the fact remains that
Frank Coffin has resigned h.s position.
Whether or not the ordinance of ths
ladies controlling the musical board of
Grace Church prohibiting the wearing of
whiskers affected Mr. Coffin so as to make
him give up a lucrative situation after
two years of steady employment is a
matter that he alone can tell, aud this he
will not do.
Miss Gwin, however, deplores that the
whiskers story ever went beyooG the
nner circle, as she says that no edict of the
kind would ever have been enforced, even
if the board bad it within its power to
dictate anvtbiig of th> kind.
"It is true," she said. "Mr. Coffin has
resigned from the Grace Church choir.
His resignation was requested last week,
and he will cease his connection with the
choir at the end of this month.
''The reason for our request that he re
sign is understood by him and is quite
simple. We requested him to sing in
choruses, and he objected to sing anything
but solos. His physician, so be said, had
forbidden him singing in choruses, and
we do not need him as a soloist.
"In other words, we have been paying
him $40 each month to sing for us in
choru-cs, and as he cannot do it, or will
not, we must loot for some one else who

way affect the remaining members of the
Another Defense by the Garrison

A N w Rifl Ran-rc— Toe New F ring
Regulations Will Gira Diversi
fied Practic —Post Contest.
During the past week there were presented
sevetal problems to the officers of the gam
gon at the Presidio for practical explanation.
The principal one ot these was a defense of
the ganison something on the lines of the out
post duty that was had some time since. The
placing of the man on the Ueiensive ahow.-d
that the officers in charge had gone over the
field carefully, and with the available force *t
band made a very creditable showing.
There was also practice with the small mor
tars at figure targets, and the results were
most satisfactory.
The new rifle range has been built in the
hollow from the base of Golf Hill, west of the
pumping station, and as »oon as the new fir
ing regulations are received target practice
with small arras will be ordered. The new
regulations do away with the old-style targets
ana instead thereof there are figures of a man
standing, another kneeling, a third lying
down and a fourth a man on horseback.
These are intended to represent the enemy at
fixed distances.
In addition to these the new regulations
have been oo arranged as to give men the ; rn< -
tice that they would uae in actual warfare
and in carrying out the new ideas the men
will be drilled for battle conditions and will
use their arms over diversified country, from
behind cover and in the open. The new regu
lations will introduce many new featur.-s
and, in view of the danger of the use of ball
cartridge in field exercise, the most rigid pre
cautions will have to be taken o prevent
casualties. It is expected that the target prac
tice at the new range will be ordered this
commencing to-morrow there will be prac
tice with the pneumatic dynamite guns at the
Fort Point battery.
The officers of the post contest that tas been
ordered for the 23<1 inst at the Presidio an
nounce that there will be a number of very in
teresting events. Many ol them will be purely
military and will be of a character that will
engross the attention of the civilians who will
I attend.
It is stated that a communication has been
sent to the War Department on the subject of
illuminating the post at the Presidio with
electricity— electric lights to replace the coal
oil lamps now in use there.
A recent order of the War Department says:
"The commanding officer of each cavalry, ar
tillery and infantry regiment may, on the Ist
oi August of each year, nominate to the com
manding general of the army one subaltern
for detail at Willets Point for a course ol in
struction in torpedo service, commencing on
the Ist day of November and ending on the
Ist day of September following. The nomina
tions thin made will be forwarded through
i the regular military channels."
Brigadier-General William R. Shafter has

Some Thoughts About the
Several Encamp
Will the Military Instruction to
B3 Imparted Prove o Any
Practical Value?
The N w Drill Regulations Will Be
in Force After July I-A Bat
talion Drill on the Avenue.
As the time for encampments approaches
the members of the National Guard are pre
paring to absent themselves for the seven
ilars required Dy law that they shall remain
away receiving iustructions under "men
learned in the art of war." The officers of the
several regiments are confident that they will
hare a good showine at to members at the
several'campi, and they undoubtedly will if
men can get away. The commander of a regi
ment said on Saturday: "It is impossible to
say how many men we will have at camp for
the reason that many of the men of my com*
maud are employed in business from which it
will be difficult lor them to absent themselves
fcr the required length of time. A man who
has employment at ibis time does not car*- to
leave his job for seven day* for fear that when
he returns he> will bo told 'wo have got along
without you for seven days and I guess we can
get along without you for the future.' It is
the uncertainty of returning to positions that
will det^r men from asking for leave of ab
sence for the full term of vhe encampmom."'
If thi> commamlcr it correct in his surmises
then the camps will not be the great successes
from a military standpoint thai It in expected
to make them. Every man in each rrgiment
ghiniid. have the benefit of the seven day-' in
structions, if it is desired to tcacn him much
that he ought to know, but if l'e cau absent
himself for only three days and it takes him
t tie best part of two to reach the camp aud re
turn to the starting point, the amount of mil
itary instruction he will receive will not avail
him much.
Of course it is not to be expected that mem
bers ot tlie National Guard can be soldiers of
the standard of those in the regular army, but
they have much to learn— not only the men,
but the officers who command them. Lieutcn
ant-folonel Theodore J. H.y of the Third Bri
gade, detailed to Inspect tne Second Regi
ment oi the brigade, has presented a report in
whlcn he commends the men generally for
their efficiency, and he takes occasion to draw
attention to t>rror<t that couid by avoided it
officers were more careful as to the entorce
ment of the rules, which, while not irksome
or annoying to the men, add much to their
efficiency as soldiers. One matter that he
calls attention to is the habit of talitlng in the
ranks, and another the failure to keep proper
distances. The fault is not only with com pa
nics of the Second R.jfiment of the Third Bri
gade, but is noticeable in other org.nuizations
ol the Guard. He also suggests that some of
the officers bhould perfect themselves in the
It is possible that at the camps the men. in
stead of being compelled to perform the same
maneuvers that they perform in the armories,
will be called upon to execute problems that
have been suggested to the regular army by
the War Department and which have been re
cently demonstrated by the garrison at the
Presidio pest. If such is done it will place
the men — those who will take part In such ex
ercises—in closer touch with the regular army
and enable them to act conjointly with it in
case of need. The aim of the War Department
now is to have the National Guard of the sev
eral States come up us near the standard of the
regular army as possible. "li," said an army
officer, "an occasion should arise that would
require a combined action by the regular army
and tne National Guard of a State it would not
do to have a variance as to drill, arms and
general regulations."
The Second Brigade.
Saturday night the second battalion, com
posed of companies 11, B, D and L of the First
Regiment Infantry, were under recent in
structions of Colonel Smith ordered out for
battalion drill under command of Major Sime.
Companies B and D made a good showing, nu
merically, but the other two companies were
mere skeletons. The battalion was tiken to
Van Ness avenue where they were drilled in
Close order movements. Generally the men
made a go~>d showing, but mere yes a great
deal of talking in the ranks and lack of preser
vation of company front while moving in
double time, and in many Instances the dis
tances wan not good, but these laults were
drawn to tie attention of the proper officers
ana before the drill was over tnere was a
marked Improvement.
Colonel Fairbanks and other officers of the
Fifth Regiment leit this city on Saturday tor
Santa Cruz to inspect several sites that nave
been offered as suitable lor the encampment
that the regiment will hold.
At the meeting ot the board of officers held
last Thursday night at the armory of the First
Infantry it was decided that from and after
the Ist of next July the regiment should drill
under the new regulations prescribed for the
United States army. The adjutant-general
has promised to lurnish th« new regulations i
before that time.
After the vacation in the Lowell High School
rhere will be a change in the officers of the
Cadet Corps,
A member of Company D of the First Regi
ment, who evidently hurriedly read wliri was
published last Thursday in regard to Com
pany B decorating the graves of its deceased
members, writes: "In thi« morning's issue of
the San Francisco Call I rrad that there
was only one company in the Ntilonal Guard
that remembered its dead on Memorial day.
Now, in justice to Company D, formerly com
manded by Captain R. A. Marshall, deceased,
but now under command of Captain Tiwmn
McCreagh, 1 wou d like to say that on Decora
tion day the company went to Floiy Cross Cem
etery and to Odd Fellows' Cemetery, decorated
the graves of deceased members and fired a
volley over the gray of their lute captain."
If the member of Company D had read the
artic.e published carefully he would have
noticed that it asserted that "Company B,
First Regiment, claims to be the only com
pany of the National Guard of California
wh<»6e members regularly decorate the graves
of their departed comrades." If any other
company rouu.arly decorates the graves of its
deceased comrades this department will
gladly make the announcement.
The Naval ReiurT*.
The Nayal Reserve in this City was mustered
and inspected last Tuesday by Colonel Potts
and Co.onel Edwards, Major-'ieueral James
being present. After muster and inspection,
which was ashore, there was a battalion drill,
during which the men made a very creditable
showing and drilled well, jhere was a very
good numerical showing at muster.
The necessary arrangements are being made
for the cruise to be taken uext month. The

Fall Preparation
-_ I s^cy It will take us over a month to make room !
I t|^A^ and dispose of sufficient stock to prepare us
for the new season — so we will hold weekly
sales, each week producing something new. In disposing
of this stock in this manner we follow in the footsteps of
men made prosperous through adopting such plans.
Alex. T. Stewart of New York, for instance, commenced
life on nothing and accumulated over twenty millions by
making a rule never to carry goods over from season to
season — marking many different lines of goods down to
one low — sometimes cost.
For this week we have marked several lines of O^Q
high-grade garments down to vPv^
The values are good for $15 and $20, and the materials
are all wool, very best trimmings and workmanship. Com-
prising single and double breasted sack suits in all the late
shades. We have hundreds of them and our reputation is
dyed, spun, sewed and woven in every one of them.
Come at once.
