MONTEREY PLANNING
FOR A CELEBRATION
Proposed Jubilee on the Fiftieth
Birthday of the Constitution .
of California.
MONTEREY, May There is a. move
ment on foot among the pioneer, Monte
reyans to arrange a 'ration in "Mdnte
rey of the fiftieth annivorsay of the day
on which the constitutional convention
completed Its work of drafting a consti
tution for the State if California. Great
interest in the project is being manifested
by the citizens. The constitution was com
pleted on October 13. 1849, but was not
formally adopted till Che banning of ISSO.
The plan is to set October 13 of the pres
ent year as th occasion for the .semi-cen
tennial celebration, which is to be partic
ularly Californian in its character and to
petition the Governor to proclaim that day
a State holiday, to be designated as Con
stitution day. The pioneers throughout
the State re enthusiastic over the plan.
Colton Hall, the building in Which the
constitutional convention Fat. is still
standing, though greatly in need of re
pair, owing to the lack of funds to keep
It up, and many of the old landmarks of
the pioneer era are to be found- In and
about Monterey, which in the light of
such a celebration would take on a new
interest to residents of the State. The
desk upon which the draft of the con
stitution rested while being signed and the
pen used by the signers are still in exis
tence, the latter in the possession- of the
family of the late Dr. James L. Ord.
whose brother. Judge Paciflcus Ord, of
Washington, D. C, is the only surlvor of
the members of the celebrated convention.

AMERICA'S REQUEST FUTILE

British Government Finds No Reason
Why the Sentence of the Court
Should Be Set
Aside.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
NEW YORK, May £S.— The Washington
correspondent of the Herald telegraphs:
I Groat Britain has again refused the re-
I quest of the United States that Mrs. May
brick be pardoned. This is the result of
another application made for her release
| by Embassador Choate, who has just ca
i bled to Secretary Hay the answer he re
! reived from the British Foreign Office.
--i Sincere regret is expressed in ottlcial cir
cles. The British Government Is still un
able to see its way clear to freeing -the '
hapless woman.
Despite the discouragement attendant
I upon the reiterated declination of Great
; Britain to grant the request of this Gov
j ernment. 11 is the Intention of the admin-
I istration to continue its efforts in Mrs.
Maybrick*s behalf.
When Ambassador Choate was given his
formal instructions In February, just be
fore he left for Great Britain; he was di
rected to leave no stone unturned to ob
tain clemency for Mrs. Maybrlck, and at
J the proper time to make representation
I to the British Government. ,He complied
with his instructions several weeks ago
and the British Foreign Office consented
to look Into the case again. After a rea- ,
sonable time had ■ i Bed, during which it |
ie presumed the case was reviewed, the ;
reply was returned, courteously, that
nothing had developed to cause any
change In the conduct of the Government
with respect to the prisoner.
It was told to-day that the friends of
! Mrs. Maybrick in this country, who have -
i not, however, been advised of this latest i
development in her case, are still memo- !
rializlng the State Department and the
British Government in her behalf. The
State Department has just received from '.
a league organized to obtain Mrs. May
brick's release a long statement reciting :
' the facts and pleading that she be re- j
Stored to liberty. This memorial possibly ,
will be officially transmitted to the British |
Government for its information.
In July Mrs. Maybrick will have been !
ten years in prison an a result of the |
sentence imposed upon her in conse
quence I the finding of the jury that she \
was guilty of having administered arsenic
i to her husband, a. rich Liverpool mer

PADEREWSKI AND
MME, GORSKI WED
Great Pianist Joins the
Divorced Woman.
■ . ■ .
: Special' Dispatch to The Call.
. NEW YORK. May 29.— special to the
World from Paris says: The World's rep
resentative here learns on unimpeach
able authority that lgnace Paderewski,
the great pianist, was secretly married
last December to Mmc Elena Gorski, the
divorced wife of Ladislas Gorski, the
well-known violinist, formerly a member
of the Lamoureaux Orchestra.
Mme. Gorski, when in Geneva recently,
signed herself "Elena Paderewskl" on the
register of the Casino. Mme. Gorski and
Paderewski are now living quietly in
Paris together, awaiting the Pope's dis
pensation before having an ecclesiastical
marriage. A dispensation, however, is
really needed, as the madame's marriage
to Gorski was Illegal, having been with
out the consent of her parents, as the
Polish law requires. . :
The madame, who is still passing as
Mint-. Gorski in Paris, is 44 years of age
older, therefore, than Paderewski. She
has intensely black hair, Jewish features,
! which look beautiful and ugly by turns,
' and has a remarkable fascination.
Paderewski has been devoted to her from
a time when, years ago, Gorski took care
of Paderewski's invalid son, in the days
of the great musician's poverty and ob
scurity.
In case of an ecclesiastical marriage
Gorski will probably give his wife away,
as was done by Ruskin to Sir John Mil
lais. ■

ADVENTISTS ENCAMPED
IN A CITY OF TENTS
STOCKTON, May 28.— All is in readiness for the con- j
vening of ihr* .State conference and camp rrv 'ing of
the Sev< n Day Adventists. The well appointed camp
at (Joodwater Grove was visited Eo-day by hundreds
of persons from this city, who wera surprised at the
size of the white city which has sprung up under the
spreading oaks during the past week.
Three hundred tents are set up on lines of military
precision. There is a main thoroughfare leading to the :
big meeting tent, and from it are numerous streets', all
duly numbered and indicated by directing signs. Even
th tents have their numbers and the inmates will be reg- i
istered, so that any one looking for friends will have no j
trouble in finding them. All of the carivas is bright and ;
clean, and .>n the floor of every tent is burlap, which is !
swept and cleaned daily.
The large tent in which the sessions of the conference
will be held will seat 2000 people. There is another big '
place, which will be known as the restaurant. Here all •
the foods which are peculiar to the sect will be served at i
a nominal cost. Most of the families will do their own
cooking, and the camp is provided with every convenience I
for improvised housekeeping.
There was a scene of activity at the camp to-day. Peo- j
pie were beginning to arrive in all kinds of vehicles,
while a few early comers reached the city by train. As to
day was not the Sabbath to the Adventists, but merely the
first of the week, the work of finishing the camp went on
without cessation. Everybody had something to do and
was working as if the success of the coming conference
depended entirely upon him. |

Built.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
SALT LAKE, Utah, May 2S.— Rear-Ad
miral Schley arrived here from Denver
at 10 o'clock this morning. At Provo,
Utah, he was met by a reception commit
tee headed by Governor Wells and other
State officials. A large and enthusiastic.
crowd greetted the party at the railroad
station. At 2 o'clock in the afternoon the
rear-admiral and party attended the ser
vices at the Tabernacle. The regular ser
vices were suspended for special, service
in his honor. After music by the Taber
nacle Choir a short sermon was preached
by Dr. Talmage. At the conclusion of the
services Rear Admiral Schley was es
corted to the pulpit, and after shaking
hands with the church officials made a
short speech. He said in part:
This is the first time in my life that I have
ever been in the interior of this great empire
of ours, and I have abundant proof and reason
now to understand how it Is that we have
grown to such a mighty nation. , .
I believe that the fundamental principle un
derlying that confidence upon which the Repub
lic Is built has been the respect and love for its
women. As we say in our profession, the man
who serves behind the guns best Is the man
who has the best woman serving behind him.
It has been their doings largely which have
made our flag a little bit more beautiful;- that
has made us a little bit more proud of being
Americans.
In the war through which, we have just
passed I think It has been worth all the blood
that has been shed and all the money that has
been spent to have learned our own. power and
to have taught it to other people. Another Im
pressive lesson has been that the lines which
divided us heretofore have all been dissipated,
and in the war just ended the North and the
South, the East and the West, have stood in
that brotherhood : and in , that readiness to die
for the best flag; in the world, supported and
protected by the best people, because they be
lieve In God and God's presence In everything.
In the afternoon the visiting, party was
driven through the principal streets to
the home of George Y. Wallace, whose
guests they will be during their stay in
the city. ____________

Special Dispatch to The Call.
STOCKTON, May 28.— Rabbi Farber of
the Jewish synagague occpuied the pulpit
of the First Congregational Church this
evening. His presence drew a represent
ative audience of Hebrew and Christian
people. Hew Dr. Sink, the pastor of
the church, spoke in the synagogue on
Friday evening, and the rabbi this even
ing reciprocated the courtesy.
In introducing the Jewish divine Rev.
Dr. Sink said he counted his frinedship
with the rabbi very highly, and while
they both held tenaciously to their ten
ets they found companionship and profit
in the social relation. The pastor said
he did not see why differences of the
head should affect the relations of the
heart. In the synagogues of old the
teachers of all shades of opinion were
given an opportunity to be heard, and he
was sure the rabbi's, remarks would
work to the edification of all. Jt was with
pleasure that he introduced his friend.
Rabbi Farber said he did not feel that
he w r as working an innovation. Neither
he nor Dr. Sink were seeking to interfere
with one another's work. Churches were
erected to the worship of God and not to
creeds. Jf a man 'entered the sacred pre
cincts with a heart for worship the
thonght of the Great I Am would so
humble him that he would not riuibhle
over smaller differences. Where the mind
contemplated the Infinite Creator there
could be no time for construction of dog
mas. These remarks he made with a view
that all should understand the broad
plane upon which he and his Christian
brother Btood He was Kind of the spirit
and age which made such a fellowship
possible.
The rabbi then delivered an eloquent ad
dress upon "Side Lights From Jewish
History. ' He showed how in many re
spects the ideas of Judaism and Chris
tianity blended. He explained the hopes
of the Jews, their characteristics, nation
al and social, bringing out many points
unfamiliar to any but careful readers Of
history. The address was well received.
Jt was scholarly and in a spirit calculat
ed to win the good will of all.

Prisoner's Crime the Killing of At

Angeles in Revenge for
a Blow.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
I.OS ANGELBS, May 28.— The trial of
William H. Alford, charged with the mur
der of Attorney Jay B. Hunter, will begin
to-morrow in the Superior Court, and
probably will be one of the memorable
cases heard in this county. The fact that
Hunter was a southern attorney of abil
ity, prominent in social and business af
fairs and the owner of several mines at
Randsburg has added more than passing
interest to the case.
Alford is a young mechanic, who had
prospered by dint of perseverance and
had borne a good reputation. This was
evidenced when a friend advanced Jlu.'wO
in Government bonds to procure his re
lease on bail.
The killing occurred last February in
the office of Hunter, in the Stimson
block. It was the outgrowth of animos
ity of long standing, arising from business
matters. Hunter was indebted to Alford
under a judgment which Hunter persist
ently refused to pay. When Alford went
to collect the judgment Hunter knocked
him down. Alford then shot and killed the
attorney.
The defense will not deny the killing.
Hunter made a dying statement accus
ing Alford of having murdered him
Around this the legal battle will center
The point that Hunter knocked Alford
down with a cane whose silver head
weighed three pounds will form the back
i of the defense.
Over one hundred witnesses have been
summoned. General Johnstone Jones will
appear for the State, assisted by ex-Sen
ator White, Charles Wellborn and Win
der, Creighton & Davis. Alford will be
defended by Karl Rogers, Hon. Will \
Harris, Frank Flint and Paul Burks For
political reasons a great many hiwyers
hnve scrambled to assist in the defense

day. 1 have felt for a long time that if I
could not secure a chance to win the Der
by this year I would prefer standing on
the ground to watch the race. Therefore
I have refused to ride My Boy, the own
ers of which have pressed me to make an
effort.
"I am now negotiating for a mount,
which is not yet decided, but which I
shall announce to-morrow or Tuesday,
and which, if successful, will be a com
plete surprise. I should have to he conn
dent of winning a place or I would not
think of making the trial.
"The fact that I have had a series of
losses recently in no wise affects my npir
its. All this is the fortune of the turf. I
do not know of any race I ha% r e lost that
I can look back on now and think I could
have won. My mounts, perhaps, have
been just as good as they were last year,
nor has there been any particular mishap
in the races that would lead me to think
that they were lost for any reason except
that my opponents had better v horses. In
the race for the Manchester •■cup, the
track conditions were -undoubtedly favor
able to Asierie, but she is in anything but
the best form.
"All talk about my being discouraged
or dissatisfied or disposed to return to
America is untrue, as are the alleged re
ports of my talk with the Prince of
Wales, which have only been printed in
the hope thut they would injure me by
being reproduced in the English papers.
"When I was disqualified at Epsom. I
knew I could not control the horae and
this rendered the result imperative. Lord
Durham told me he had not heard a clear
er or more explicit account of the race
than I gave him. Neither I nor my
American backers have ever complained
of the decision. In fact, I am quite as
well satisfied with events here as ever,
and I am confident that the end of the
season will show a good average for me."

the managing owner of the new cup yacht

boat. Mr. Iselin has given much thought
and time to the construction of the new
craft in addition to his financial interest,
and from the launching of the yacht f.ill
be In dally communication with her de-
Btjjner, skipper and crew. When she has
been placed In commission he VtW tak- 1
i charge of her preparation for trial with
! the Defender, and in this important busi
ness he has no superior in this country.

her trial the still greater responsibility
of bringing her to the line in perfect con
dition to meet the Shamrock will rest
upon him. In the case of the Vigilant and
> the Defender he was successful, and bet
• ter informed yachtsmen are sure that the
same good luck in the coming interna
tional match will await him and his as
sociates.
