will make the massive portals of the
Hopkins Institute of Art swing back on
their hinges and admit the favored pos

sure to msrk an epoch in the history of
the State University.
Honor where honor is due seems to be
the moving sentiment of those interested
in the affair. The idea of honoring the
first woman regent in California origin
ated with the ladies of the California
branch of the Association of Collegiate
Alumnse. Mrs. A. F. Morrison, president
of the alumnse, was the first to broach the
subject, and she at once received the
unanimous co-operation of all her fellow
Mrs, A. F, Morrison.

Captain Clarxson, superintendent of the
House of Correction, is very much worried
over a discovery that was made within
the walls of the institution over which he
has charge yesterday.
Ever since Joseph Theron, a desperate
criminal, made his break for liberty sev
eral weeks ago and was brought back at
the muzzles of the guards' guns a close
watch has been kept' on those who were
believed to be interested in the attempted
jail break, and more than usual vigilance
has been exercised. .

.Then the alumni of the university
begged leave to join and pay respect to
Mrs. Hearst— she whom all love and
esteem — and the result was the co-opera
tion of the alumna; and the alumni in
furthering a reception in the lady's honor
on Saturday eveninc next between the
hours of & and 11 o'clock.
'At the outset the affair was purely an
educational one, but little by little it took
on a social aspect, until now, judging by
the invitational J list, education, art ana
society are so closely and intimately in
terwoven that it is difficult to tell where
one begins and the other leaves oft.
Fifteen hundred invitations have al
ready been issued for the affair, but the
demand has so far exceeded the supply
that the magic cards have given out and

Yesterday a startling discovery was
made. Guard Strand, who was instructed
to search the blacksmith-shop, was about
to leave the building when he remem
bered that he had failed to inspect a heap
of junk in one corner. Returning he
peered about the mass. and, in a dark re
cess where they would be least likely to be
discovered, found two jimmies, such -a**
burglars use when breaking into premise,
that they desire to rob, and which might
well be used in opening the doors that
separate the criminals of the House of
Correction from liberty.
.The two implement-- had been manu
factured out of the iron used*in repairing
wagons, and were evidently the work of
an expert.
Guard Strand at once reported his find
to Captain Ciarkson and a watch was put
on the men who were recently at work in
the shop. The superintendent declined
to say whom he suspected, but stated that
until the mystery was cleared up several
of his charges would be under a constant

North Fork Arrivals Say the Report*
of Strikes Are False.
Two people to bring late news from the
Alaska gold fields are Dr. G. W. McKin
non and Henry C. Deering, who arr. ved
overland yesterday from Tacoma and regl
istered at the Grand Hotel. Both hai
from Eureka and were passengers for the
Klondike on the steamer National
City which tailed from this city on
August 7. Deering was formerly the
head accountant for the Excelsior Red
wood Company, and in company with Dr.
McKinnon took with him a steam launch
and a large boat to make the ascent of the
Yukon, z'y.y: j.\
St. Michael was reached August 21 and
the voyage up the river begun August 28.
An Indian pilot was hired to pilot the
launch and its accompanying tow of the
big boat rilled with provisions and sup
plies through the shifty channels of the
stream. All went well the first 350 miles
of the long journey. At this point the
Indian pilot lost his head during a storm
with the result that the provision boat
foundered and Deering: and McKinnon
were obliged to return to St. Michael
whence they arrived on the steamer North
Fork at Tacoma two days ago.
"It was a serious disaster to us when tbe
provision boat foundered," said Dr. Mc-
Kinnon. "as 1 am very sure we wou.d
have reached Dawson this year. We had
a splendid outfit and food enough to last
us a year, but probably it is just as well
that matters turned out as they did, for 1
believe that there will be famine in the
Klondike diggings this year or else all
signs will fail.
"I do not believe the stories that have
been printed about the rich strikes on the
Minook. I talked wild one man who had
mined two years on this creek and he told
me that he did not make $5. At present
there are about 1500 people In that dis
trict, but most of them are there from
necessity rather than from choice, fearing
to proceed further up the Yukon with the
prospects of a famine at Dawson.
"There is plenty of provisions at this
point, and the people, there are sure of
plenty to eat, even if they do not find any
gold, which is a much brighter condition
of affairs thaa that which confronts the
Daw.-on millionaires. All kinds of craft
are coming down the river from Dawson
laden with people who have deserted the
country for the winter in order that they
may be sure of provisions."

Monday Night's Fight Did
Not Deprive Him of
the Title.
O'Bourke Talks About the
Scientific Battle Between
the Lads. J:
Solly Ready to Meet Any Man in
His Class— White, Black or
The decision "Smith wins," rendered
by George Green, the referee of the Smith-
Dixon fight on Monday night, doss not
d.p: ive Dixon of the feather-weight cham
pionship of the world as many suppose.
While the London prize-ring . rules,
which provided that championship bat
les should be fought with bare knuckles
are obsolete, the Marquis of Queensberry
rules stipulate that all championship bat
tles shall be to a finish.
It was for this reason that Corbett and
Fitzsimrnons fought at Carson and where
the contest was not limited to any given
number of rounds.
Had Smith knocked Dixon out in any
one of the twenty rounds in Monday
night's battle, or had Dixon's seconds
thrown up the sponge, or had Dixon
failed to respond to the call of time in any
of the rounds, Smith would toda-r be the
feather- champion of the" world.
But as it was, Dixon at the end of the
twentieth round was strong and belli er
ent. consequently he did not surrender
the championship by Green's decision,
lhe decision was on points and nothing
else. *
In order that Smith may acquire the
feather-weight championship of the world
he must fight and lick Dixon to a finish,
" v j£t lher it be in one round or 100 rounds.
There was much talk last night in
sporting resorts about a match between
Solly Smith and Dal Hawkins.
O'Rourke. Dixon's manager, said that
he would like to see the men meet, and if
they came together his money would be
placed on Hawkins. "I am satisfied,"
said he, "that Hawkins can do Smith."
Hawkins on being seen said: "I will
fiuht Smith at catchwoights and wager
from $1000 to $5000 on the side that I can
lick him in twenty rounds. lam willing
to fight him betoro the club offering the
largest puree."
It is customary, however, for the chal
lenging party to put up a forfeit, thus
showing that be means business.
Smith, oa being seen, said; "I am will
are: Mrs. Judge C. W. Slack, Dr. Ade
laide Brown, Miss Florence Dean, Miss
Florence Prag, Mrs. F. Slate, Mrs. Ber
nard Moses. Miss Ethel Moore, Miss

Mrs. Warren Gregory, Miss Marion Ran

Among the invited guests are included

am a feather-weight, fighting at 120
pounds. Hawkins is a light lightweight.

his money and fight before any club offer

Fighting is my business." . . v /

Peter Jackson, the colored heavy-weight
champion, was one of 'he many friends ot
Dixon who thought that the colored lad
was entitled to a draw at least. Pjter was
leeling a little bit mellow yesterday when
he expressed his opinion to several inter
ested people who were . anxious to learn
what th- great fighting general thought of
the referee's decision.
"This man Smith is a great little fighter,
I must confess," said Jackson, "but I
watched the contest from start to finish
as close as any observer and I can assure
yon that I failed to see where Smith
scored any advantage over Dixon until the
gong sounded the finish of the twentieth
"Possibly Smith may have proven him
self a shade stronger than Dixon in the
last few rounds of the mill, but, from an
unprejudiced point of view. I cannot say
that ne scored any more points than his
opponent. I think, a* draw would have
given very general satisfaction." ''iyy.
Tom O'Rourke,. the manager and confi
dential adviser of deor*- 4 Dixon and bi
stable companion, Joe Waicott, does not
feel very pleasantly disposed toward the
referee, George Green. ..*...
O'Rourke said : "I mentioned Green
among, several others when selecting a
referee as being a man whom 1 thought
would render a just and -honest decision,
and when I consider what I had done in
the premises 1 now feel- somewhat sur
prised that Smith accepted Green as bis
choice so readily. ■■■■■■ --."^fssfmntijjM^kS^k^S^
"If a finish fight cannot be arranged, I
will back Dixon again in a twenty-round
contest with Smith, provided, of course,
we can agree -on r a referee. Green may
be a good fighter in the ring, but as a ref
eree he is as green on the points of the
game as an emerald toothpick.'*.
Speaking ot ; the '■* next - great contest,
which wiil be decided at the Mechanics'
Pavilion in the latter part of this month.
O'Rourke said that lie would be a little
more particular in V his :] selection *."■ of * -a

Lavigne and J Waicott, or i their respective
managers,' must meet on tbe day of 'the
evening of the mill and; select a referee,'
and in case they cannot agree upon '-any.

Club (Young Mitchell), under whose

. Dixon was around town yesterday feel
ing very sore mentally and *. physically.
He tried to drown his sorrow in pouring
spirits down to keep his spirits up.' 3He
exhibited a shanty over his right eye, but
with the exception of his facial adorn
ment he said lhat he was perfectly sound
of body and eager for another brush at bis
game and bard-hitting opponent, * ■ *, • •
Solly Smith did not show a sign of pun
ishment yesterday. He had very little to
say of the fight. He spent the greater
part of the day at his sisters residence
and when asked if he would fight Dixon
again he said that fighting was his busi
ness and that first come would be the first
served. • ( .•..*.-..*, ■ i
,„_ Yo, J must member," said Smith,

winked. r "If Dixon can arrange a fight to
a finish I will bo, on hand in time to see
him. Any old kind of a fight will be ac
ceptable to me. I whipped him good and
fair Monday night and there is no one
who knows that better than himself. If

The Hebrew Day of Atonement was
ushered in last evening with services tn
all the temples of this city, which at 6
o'clocK were ' comfortably filled, and at
half-past that hour were so crowded as to
make ingress and egress a matter of diffi
culty. yy,y
As was to be expected on the eve of
what is to the Israelite a day of days, the
cantors of the various synagogues bad been
at great pains in attention to the musical
details of their services. These were well
rendered ■ by competent choirs of mixed
voices, accompanied on the organ.
I The synagogue services will be resume d
at an early hour this morning— in some
cases, at daybreak and during the day
sermons. touching the celebration will be
delivered by the rabbis.
All °** the synagogues are especially dec
orated for the occasion and present a
beautiful* appearance. The altars are
draped* with white satin and silk altar
cloths fringed with gold, while In front of
the arks of the covenant, in which rest the
manuscript } scrolls of the law, are hung
spotless white curtains. .The platforms
upon which the altars stand are all pro
fusely, adorned with white cut flowers and
at the services - the ■*■ cantors I and '•, rabbis
wore white robes. From the predom

of the day, it might well' be called the
"white feast." ■' *'*^ 4^qf^ I y 'linpan^Syjtpßragm^-jfc"

The title of Rabbi Nieto's discourse was
"The Recollections of Our Child hood and
Youth." In the course of bis remarks the
rabbi said: "So great indeed did the an
cient Hebrews esteem the potency of the
awakening of the recollections of -arly life
that the figure and face of the child was
placed in positions made conspicuous by
the sanctity of the vessels in close prox
imity to them. Above the ark in which
reposed the testimony of God's covenant
with Israel rested the figures of children.
This was to signify to the people that the
innocence of children stood nearer the
throne of God than the evidence of man
fettered to loyalty by a succession of
oaths and penalties. Above the lion and
oxen that supported the biazen sea in Sol
omon's Temple were superimposed the
faces of children. This taught the people
that even though purity were incased in
firmness and upheld by strength and with
dignity, yet is the simplicity of childhood
nearer to the pure state we conceive to be
God than all that man deems great or
