Registration closes next Wednesday,
September 24, leaving but three days
more for voters to find a reg
istration clerk. The County Clerk's
office has been doing everything
in its power to induce voters to put them
selves on record and have been working
nights to accommodate them. Every night
the office has been kept open from 7 to
9:30 o'clock.. On the night before regis
tration closes the office will remain open
until midnight in order to accommodate
the tardy ones. Besides tne County
Clerk's office there are many registration
deputies who can be found upon inquiry.
The registration has been so lax that
registration clerks have been seeking the
voters in their homes and places of busi
ness. Any business house that has men
too busy to register can have a clerk sent
to them for the mere asking, tho purpose
being to get a full registration.
If some three thousand voters don't
hurry up they will not be able to vote at
the November election. With only three
more days to register the list is still shy
that number of names. A good many men
do not understand that they have to reg
ister this year, but it is a fact that they
must if they want to vote in November.

OAKLAND, Sept. 21.— The Oakland Elks
won at baseball to-day at Golden Gate,
defeating the Stockton Elks by a score of
21 to 16. Oakland could not field, but
could bat and that is why It won the
game. Stockton could field but It couldn't
bat, and that's why it lost the game.
Kettleman, Stockton"3 pitcher, was smit
ten so hard that the scorer gave up try
ing to count the hits. It was the same
way with Oakland's errors— too hard a
job to count them. Dean, Oakland's
shortstop, made nine errors, though he
denies it. So does the catcher, Sam Platt,
deny that he made four errors. It was an

Dr. Orlow advocates philanthropy of a

thing to do, when people are hungry/ 111
or distressed, is to send food, physician
or any other necessities and, instead of
moralizing, to give sympathy and restore
faith In God. humanity and ourselves.
The optimistic discourse of O. N. Orlow,

was largely attended, several hundred
people comprising the audience. Dr.
Orlow is the founder of the Or
law. Institute and the "Society of
Human Endeavor," in this city,
as well as similar organizations in Eu
rope and America. His theme last even
ing, "Right and Wrong," was strongly
centered about the "New Thought," and
the object of his principles was to recog
nize a Divine principle In man; to try to
understand life through knowing natural
laws; to apply such knowledge in daily
life; to establish schools and settlements,
especially for poor children, where these
principles may be applied and lived, es
tablishing harmony and comfort.

Screaming from pain and fright, the lit
tle fellow ran out of the house. A neigh
bor's child, Alice Fisher, saw the boy and
tried to extinguish the flames by playing
a stream of water on them from
a garden hose. But the little
boy would not keep within dis
tance. In his plight assistance came
in the person of William Orr, a grocer's
clerk, who was driving by in a wagon.
Orr ran to the child and at much peril
to himself grabbed the boy and smothered
the fire by rolling him in the street. Tha
mother arrived home shortly afterward.
Meanwhile Dr. Charles F. Gladding had
arrived and attended the little sufferer.
The physician found that the injuries
were very severe, and from the outset
said that there was little hope for re
covery. The boy lingered for a day, and
then succumbed to the sever© shock. The
Coroner has charge of the case.

LONDON, Sept. 21.— The high rates at
New York and large purchases of gold for
America have caused a continued firmness
in the money market, but apprehensions
are acute of a scarcity of gold on account
of the predicted abnormal shipments to
New York. These, however, are believed
to have little foundation. It is realized
here that, even if Secretary Shaw's plan
for the Issuance of temporary National
Bank notes Is not acted upon, the good
will of the banks of England, France and
Germany will enable New York to obtain
sufficient gold to carry over the present
American stringency without especially in
conveniencing Europe. The Bank of
France has an extraordinary accumula
tion of unemployed money to spare and
the fact that the Bank of England's rate
of discount remains at 3 per cent shows
that money has not become particularly
scarce. The recovery in New York ex
change rates Is regarded here as merely
manipulation for the purpose of prevent
ing advances in the London bank rate.
Some $1,750,000 which was available in the
open market the middle of last week has
disappeared and is understood to have
been bought for the New York market.
There are many evidences of a desire to
obtain gold without disturbing the Lon

During the afternoon the mines and
mills were opened to the vis'.tors and
those who wished were taken through
and shown the process from beginning
to end by which the immense quantity
of sold is taken from the ground and
by which Angels Is mads one of the
leading mining towns of the State, the
proof of which is the steady increase in
the population, rapid Improvements, in
creasing value of real estate and the es
tablishment of the railroad. The quality
of the new road is a credit to those who
had it in charge, and is wished prosper
ity by the people.
The principal feature of amusement in
the afternoon was a ¦ successful balloon
ascension at 4:30 o'.?iock by an expe
rienced aeronaut. The balloon drifted
slightly to the northwest, until almost
invisible, when the balloonist and para
chute separated from the balloon and
gradually descended, reaching the ground
about a mile from where the ascension
As the excursion train from Stockton
via Oakdale, Jamestown and Sonora ar
rived, 100 pounds of giant powder was set
off on the hillside nearby in a line of
five-pound blasts. As the visitors reached
the depot they were heartily received by
the large number of townspeople and two
brass bands. Excellent music was sup
plied all day by the Sixth Regiment band
of Stockton and the Miners band of
Angels, the members of which were
dressed in uniforms of blue made up af
ter the fashion of typical mlnera' cloth
ing with boots and oil hats.
ANGELS CAMP, Sept. 21.— Upon the
completion and arrival of the Sierra Rail
way to-day there was the largest cele
bration ever held here. It began last
evening with a grand ball at which there
were at least 2000 visitors to the town.

Bank stocks yesterday shared the gen
eral rise, on decided action by the Bank
ers' Congress at Frankfort against the
boerse law. 1 It is hoped this action of the
Congress will lead to reform and improve
ment in the position of the banks.
German Government loans declined
more and there were other heavy sales of
Imperial 3 per cents and Prussian con
sols for several days. Most foreign secu
rities partook of the general weakness of
the market, but Turks partly xecovered
their losses. . •
Iron shares were depressed until yester
day, because of a reduction In the price
of pfgiron and moat unfavorable annual
reports from several iron companies, but
a partial recovery was afforded yesterday.
General industrials were mostly lower
during the week, but sugar shares were
higher, on a rise in the price of raw
sugar, through American purchases and
uncertain crop prospects. The weather Is
remaining cool and wet at the- very time

BERLIN, Sept. 2L— The boerse here had
a dull week. Quotations In nearly all de
partments declined until yesterday, when
reports of Friday in New York caused
sharp reaction. Early in the week, there
was considerable short selling, but yester
day the shorts were hurried to cover. As
the settlement approaches It is seen that
engagements are larger than for a long
time Dast, but the settlement Is expected
to pass easily, in spite of dearer money,
which is regarded as only temporary.
The claim of the company that a war-
Ehip would be sent to ilarcus Island to
place Captain Rosehill in possession is
based upon a nearly analogous case
•which occurred during President Buchan
an's administration, where an Ami.ican
citizen had taken possession of Navussa,
a small guano island off the coast of
Hayti. He had been ordered to leave by
the Haytian Government, and appealed to
the United States for protection. Presi
dent Buchanan sent a gunboat to the
scene and placed the man in possession
of the island, warning the Haytian Gov
ernment that no interference would be
tolerated, as the claim was good under
the guano laws of Congress. In that caoe
the Island- had belonged to Spain from
time immemorial and had been after
ward ceded to France. When Haytl
pained her independence the island was
included as belonging to her under the
treaty, and the Haytian Government set
out that it had always possessed the title
to Navassa since that day, refusing also
several applications for permission to
work the guano deposits upon it. In spite
of this, and the fact that the citizen had
not filed his indemnity bond, the United
States held tnat he was entitled to work
CALLING FOB A GUNBOAT.
The Marcus Island Guano Company was
organized with a capital of $1,000,000, di
vidrd into shares of $10 each, and the
etock was reported to be selling at any
where between $4 and $6 per share, though
It had not been placed in the open mar
ket The company also had contracts for
furnishing 30,009 tons of guano annually
to California parties, and expected to do
almost as well in Hawaii. The guano
was to be sold for $14 a ton. and there
was an estimated profit of $S per ton. On
these figures the company. In case it is
refused possession of the island, will de
ir.ard an indemnity of a sum in the neigh
borhood of fi,COO.<hX>.
Tl.e Question of indemnity is also one
¦which will probably cause considerable
trouble before it is settled. The Marcus
Island Guano Company claims to have
expended in the neighborhood of $10,000
foi the purchase of the schooner and in
vestigations already made, which are ren
dered useless because of the refusal of
Japan to allow the work to be finished.
The samples of guano brought back were
fouiid to be all that had been expected,
though as the party was not allowed to
finish Us investigations the extent of the
deposits are still unknown.
QUESTION OF INDEMNITY.
HONOLULU, Sept 14.— The officers of
the llarcus Island Guano Company are
busily engaged in preparing their case
for presentation to the United States Gov
ernment. The facts will be set out In a
printed brief, containing also the maps of
the island photographs taken there and a
copy of the communication received from
the Japanese Government. It is claimed
now that the Japanese lieutenant commit
ted an overt act in ordering the members
of the expedition to leave the island be
fore their work had been completed, for
>e-\en though they made no claim to the
island yet as citizens of a friendly power
Japan should have allowed the scientific
men to have pursued their investigations
•without molestation. Besides the value of
Marcus Island for its guano deposits and
as a cable landing place, it Is said now
that its principal value Is for a coaling
station for the United States. The forma
tion of the coral reef about the island,
with plenty of deep water to the. shore
line, would permit of an entrance being
cut in the reef sufficient to allow a large
vestcl to come in and coal. The open
spate within the reef, while not sufficient
to allow a big ship to turn, would permit
the island to be circled on the inside of

'Coffee drinking made me very much run
