Colonel er is one, of the •most prominent business men of the State, and has been ! long in the service of the National Guard. ! a thorough soldier and a strict dis ciplinarian. Lieutenant-Colonel Wallace graduated in the class of '90 at West t, and up to the time of his appoint ment In the volunteer service was first lieutenant in the Second United Stan- Cavalry. For the past three years he has been on detached duty with the Montana National Guard, and is rated among the Vest of the younger officers in the regular service. Lieutenant Hanna, adjutant of the First Battalion, is a nephew of United Slates Senator Mark A. Hanna of Ohio, •while Lieutenant J. M. Kennedy of Ana conda is Speaker of the House of the Montana Legislature and an ex-Judge and veteran journalist. Two prominent preachers— W. J. Hannah and J. H. Foust Cthe former also being a State Senator) — are in the ranks. It is the boast of the comar.d that not less than three-quarters of its members gave up positions paying from $3 DO a day and upward to fight for Vncle Sam and $13 a month. The ma jority of enlisted men are miners and Blockxnen, and are veritable giants In stature. Montana was called on to furnish one regiment of Infantry and one troop of cavalry under the first call.

General Merritt has shown his appreciation of the more than kindly offer of the Presidio and Ferry Railway Company (Union street line) In placing their cars at the disposal of the volunteers, and comments on the magnanimous treatment of his troops afforded by the company In the fol lowing letter: PALACE HOTEL. SAN FRANCISCO, CAL,., May 27. 1898. Denr Sir: I am directed by General Merritt to acknowledge the receipt of your kind letter of this date, offering the free ÜBe of the Presidio and Ferries Railroad Com pany's lir.» to all uniformed Volunteers during the present mobilization, and to say that this information will be published to the troops. The General appreciates very much the kindness which prompti this patriotic action on the part of your company, and he directs me to thank the company through Its president. Very respectfully, T. BENTLET MOTT. First Lieutenant, Seventh Artillery. Aid-de-Camp. George A. Xewhall Esq., president of the Presidio and Ferries Railroad Company. A hope was expressed that Mr. Vlnlng of the Southern Pacific Company would take cognisance of the published offer of the Union street line and for once in its history imitate an example that would have a tendency to create a kindly feeling in the minds of the people of the city toward the cor poration. The hope, however, seems a forlorn one, as Mr. Huntington's agent not only refuses the volunteers the free use of his cars the short time they will remain here, but has succeeded In collecting all the troops, with the excep tion of two regiments, out in the Richmond District, where the soldiers, in order to get to and from camp, must of necessity pay their nickels into the coffers of the Southern Pacific Company, as they alone control this entire section of the city. It is considered by the public rather significant that all the troops should be moved to an out-of-the way place to suit the convenience of the monop oly, leaving the Presidio, where they rightly belong, absolutely desolate. The Government, it is claimed, is going to the expense of constructing water mains in the streets adjoining the camp at Richmond in order to supply the necessary water facilities, when half the expense would not be necessary in supplying the Government reservation with the same Improvement. boats yesterday. The third battalion was delayed by a wreck near Truckee, and did not reach here until 11 a. m. The delay, however, gave the first com ers ample* time to do full justice to the hot breakfast provided by the Red Cross Society, and none of the troops that have arrived here relished it more, for the Montana men traveled for three days on short rations. When the last section landed they, too, were taken in to break fust by the ladies, and during the meal the escort band and the regimental band of twenty-four pieces alternated in an impromptu concert for the edification of the wearers of the crimson cross. When the last straggler had filled up on meat potatoes, coffee, bread and but ter sandwiches, fruit and pastry until he could hold no more, the entire regiment assembled and gave three times three cheers for their entertainers that threat ened to shake the massive ferry depot from its foundation. Passengers to and from Alameda points stopped to see the Montanans, until there was almost as great a crowd Inside the depot as there was on East street. The men are such giants that few National Guard uniforms could be used, conse quently a majority were in citizens' dress and not as military appearing as some of the others, but those men can fight. Preceded by the two bands the com mand. In charge of Lieutenant-Colonel Wallace, marched through the gate into East street at 11:30 a. m. and a moment later the big cannon in the tower of the Claus Spreckels building boomed out the announcement to the people that the pride of another sister State was march ing up Market street to join their com rades in arms at Camp Richmond. Im mense crowds thronged the streets and wildly cheered the soldiers, their salvos being emphasized at intervals of a few seconds by the thunderous voice of Ihe Call's artillery. Up Market street to Golden Gate ave nue, out that boulevard to Devisadero street, to Geary and Point Lobos avenue the regimeiu marched to its camping ground opposite the main entrance to Or>d Fellows' Cemetery, where it will be chartered during its stay in this city. With the exception of two squares re served for the Eighteenth and Twenty third regiments of regulars, near General B. L. Otis' headquarters, the old Bay Dis trict tract is now fully occupied, but a large tract has been secured north of Point Lobos avenue, two or three blocks from the main camp, and there the Mon tana regiment went into camp, and the North Dakota troops that arrive to-day will follow. Although the regiment brought its bag gage across the bay in the morning, it was after 4 o'clock when it reached the | camp, the men being compelled to lie around in the sand for several hours be fore they could pitch their tents. By dark, however, all the tents were up and ; strict military discipline established. Be- j sides uniforms and arms, the regiment is scantily provided with camp and kitchen equipage, but Lieutenant Neall, IT. S. A., soon ascertained what was needed, and in a few days at most will have the men made comfortable. THE PRESIDIO.

Hop© to Be Sent to the Front With the Next Expedition to th« Philippines. Tho two battalions of Washington Vol THE SA^" FRANCISCO CAI/L, SUNDAY, MAY 29, 1898. unteers who are quartered at the Fon tana barracks are putting- in their time in daily drill and are becoming quite pro ficient in the manual of arms and field evolutions. They are very anxious to go to the front, and expect to be sent with the second expedition to Manila. Lieuten ant Colonel Fife, who is in command of the Washing-ton troops, says that the men are overwhelmed with contributions of edibles from the people of San Francisco, and that the numerous delicacies, such as cake, pies and so on, are not conducive to the health of the soldiers, who indulge in too many luncheons between meals. Colonel Fife, while appreciating the gen erosity and attention of San Franciscans in this respect, does not hesitate to say that there is "too much of a good thing." Hereafter he proposes to have all food contributions placed in the hands of the commissary, who will see that they are properly rationed off to each company and served only at meal time. The only ex ception will be when delicacies are re quested to be presented to any particular man. In that event the recipient will at once be given the artii -les. with instruc tions not to eat them except at meal hours. Fifty ladies visited the Washington volunteers at the Fontana Barracks on Thursday and entertained the soldiers with songs and recitations. FLAG PRESENTATION. An Event in the Barracks of the Washington Vol unteers. A handsome flag was presented to Company D, First Washington Volun teers, now camped in the old Fontana warehouse, Thursday afternoon. Major J. J. Weisenberger made the presentation speech in behalf of citizens of Seattle who had subscribed for the flag, and he was responded to by Captain Frank E. Adams of Company D. Major Weisen berger's speech was as follows: The trumpets of war have sounded and you have voluntarily come forth from all the fields of manual and intellectual labor to assist in vindicating and defending our glorious repub lic. When I l^ok upon the men I now see be fore me— satriotlc in spirit, trained in ac- cordance with the best modern tactics, keen of eye, firm of purpose, bold, intelligent and skill ful in many arts and callings, almost as use ful In military as in civil life, I feel nroud of the distinction of having been the founder and first captain of this company. I feel that you are fully equipped to successfully cope with the uniformed automata who have forced the present issue upon us. I have no fear of the result of the contest between the "armed thinkers" of your company and the machine soldiers" of the enemy, and feel that vhe honor of our country Is SRfe In your hands.

They YELLOW LIES EXPOSED. Nebraska Soldiers Denounce One of the Exam iner's Recent Fakes. The following letters do not need a long Introduction. They were written because of a foolish Examiner story that soldiers were being poisoned, a rumor on which the sheet hoped to base a sensation: HEADQUARTERS FIRST NEBRASKA REGIMENT, May 28. 1898. To the Editor of The Call. I wish to use the columns of your paper to contradict the report published in the Examiner of yesterday morningstat ing that soldiers of my regiment had been poisoned. Some few of the men were sick as a result of over-eatins. but the article as published in yester day's Examiner is utterly false and without foundation.

FIRST NEBRASKA INFANTRY. May 28.1898. To the Editor of The Call: The men who were reported to have been poisoned were members of my company, F, and were merely Indisposed as a result of Imprudent eating.

To the Generous People of San Francisco : While I do not wish to appear lacking in appreciation for the kindness which prompts the donations of delicacies to the members of this regiment, I would re quest that no more fruit or pastry of any kind be brought to us. We are going on a long and trying journey into a still more trying climate.

A GENEROUS GIFT. Tobacco Freely Distributed to the Soldiers at Camp Richmond. Blnrkwell's Durham Tobacco Company has won the gratitude of every soldier and officer in Camp Richmond. Yesterday the company, through its agent, Herman Heyneman, distributed to every soldier in camp a sack of smoking tobacco. This large amount of tobacco was hauled to the camp in an immense four-horse dray, which was decorated with flags and bunt ing. Mr. Heyneman visited all of the headquarters, where he was gratefully and cordially received, and turned over to each regiment and battalion commander the tobacco for distribution among the men. Nearly 3000 pounds were given away to the soldiers. War Incidents.

The novelist was then writing ■ "Esmond." There were only four in I the party. "We were all very much | awed by Thackeray's presence, partic j ularly I, no-t being able as yet to ex j press myself freely in English. We sat silent for some time, no one ventured to make the first remark, the soup was i over, and there was a fine John Dore on the table waiting to be splayed. We were hoping for some brilliant sally I from Thackeray, but nothing came. "At last Thackeray suddenly turned his large spectacled eyes on me and said: 'Are you go-ing to eat your own ancestor?' I stared, everybody else stared. At last we gave it up, and Thackeray, looking very grave and learned, said: 'Surely you are the son of the Dorian Muller— the Muller who wrote that awfully learned book on the Dorians; and was not John Dore the ancestor of all the Dorians?' "There was a general 'Oh, oh!' but the ice was broken, and no one after this horrible pun was afraid of say ing anything. All I could tell Thack eray was that I was not the son of Otfried Muller, who wrote on the Do rians, but of Wilhelm Muller, the poet, who wrote 'Die Homerische Vor ADVERTISEMENTS. '■.-.,. ___^~^-.

Forty recruits for the Fourth United States Cavalry are expected at the Pre sidio to-day from Chicago. Assistant Surgeons Straub and Keefer will arrive in San Francisco from Alaska to-morrow and report to General Mer riam, who will very likely assign them to duty on the Manila expedition. Sam J. Allen, an old veteran of the navy is endeavoring to organize a force of discharged men who are ineligible for re-enlistment in active service for the de fense of San Francisco, and calls upon schule' and 'Die Schone Mullerin,' and as to John Dore being our ancestor, how could that be? The original John Dore, so I have been told, was il Jani tore, that is, St. Peter, and had no wife, as some people will have it, or at least never acknowledged her in public, though he was kind to his mother-in-law. All this did not prom ise well, yet the rest of our little din ner party was very successful; it be came noisy and even brilliant. "Thackeray, from his treasures of wit and sarcasm, poured out anecdote after anecdote; he used plenty of vine gar and cayenne pepper, but there was always a flavor of kindliness and good nature even in his most cutting re marks." Another, though less frequent, visitor to Oxford was Tennyson. "His first visit to our house was rather alarm ing. We lived in a small house in High street, nearly opposite Magda len College, and our establishment was not calculated to receive sudden guests, particularly a poet laureate. He stepped in one day during a long vacation, when Oxford was almost empty. Wish ing to show the great man all civil ity, we asked him to dinner that night and breakfast the next morning. At that time almost all the shops were in the market, which closed at 1 o'clock. My wife, a young housekeeper, did her best for our honored guest. He was known to be a gourmand, and at dinner he was evidently put out when he found the sauce with the sal mon was not the one he preferred. He was pleased, however, with the wing of a chicken, and said it was the only advantage he got from being poet laureate that he generally received the liver wing of a chicken. The next morning at breakfast we had rather plumed ourselves on having been able to get a dish of cutlets, and were not a little surprised when our guest ar rived to see him whip off the cover of the hot dish, and to hear the ex clamation: 'Mutton chops! the staple of every bad inn in England.' How ever, these were but minor matters, though not without importance at the the naval veterans of the war in this vicinity who are desirous of serving to call and enroll themselves. Town Talk This We°k. Always up-to-date.

Society and musical notes with a piquant selection of literary morceaux make up a specially readable number. time in the eyes of a young wife to whom Tennyson had been like one of the immortals. He was simply de lightful, and full of inquiries about tho East, more especially about Indian poetry." A later glimpse of Tennyson is af forded at a lunch given by Dean Stan ley in honor of the late Queen of Hol land. She had asked that a number of literary men be invited— Tennyson, Monckton Milnes (Lord Houghton), Huxley and several more. "We were waiting and waiting, but Tennyson did not appear. Stanley suggested that we should not wait any longer, but the Queen refused to sit down before the great poet's arrival. At last it was suggested that Ten nyson might be mooning about in the Cloisters, and so he was. He was caught and he was placed next to the Queen. The Queen knew wonderfully how to hide her crown and put every body at their ease. She took the con versation into her own hands, and kept the ball rolling during the whole lunch eon. But she got nothing out of Ten nyson. He was evidently in low spirits, and sitting next to him I could hear how to every question the Queen ad dressed to him he answered, 'Yes, ma'am,' 'No, ma'am,' and at last, by a great effort, "Ma'am, there is a good deal to be said en both sides of the question." He then turned to me and said in a whisper, but a loud whisper, 'I wish they had put some of you talk ing fellows next to Regina.' " Dean Stanley himself, Professor Mul ler records, not only had no love for music but actually suffered from hear ing it. Whenever he could he walked out of the room where there was music. He never disguised his weakness, he never professed any love or admiration for music, and yet Jenny Lind once told Professor Muller that he paid her the highest compliment she had ever re ceived. Stanley was very fond of Jenny Lind, but when she stayed at his fath er's palace at Norwich he always left the room when she sang. During the. last century 100 lakes In Tyrol have subsided and disappeared.
