STRONG RESERVES AID
FINANCIAL CONFIDENCE
Decline in Currency Pre
mium Considered Re
assuring
NEW YORK, Dec. f.— Tbe evenia of
th? past week in the financial world
have been such as usually mark the
gradual return of confidence and the
restoration of normal "conditions in th»
barks. The decision of the secretary
«tf the treasury to is*ue only about
SO.OOO.f'OO of the $ISd.OO<U)OQ in new
«ecuritie*. \u25a0which he expressed a will
ingness to issue, if conditions required;
the disclosure of unusually strong r»
»»rves by country bank* reporting to
the comptroller of currency, the decline
in the currency premium and the im
provement in the New York bank state
tnent have all b*>«?n feature* of the
v-ek -which have tended toward sta
toility end reassurance.
The result of the limlttng of th«> issue
of the Panama 2 per cent bonds to
$"5,000,000 and the one year treasury
certificates to abo'Jt ?1 5.000.000 will b-»
to considerably simplify th«» problem
of the treasury management and money
market conditions during the spring.
It i* anticipated by banks here that
there will be a plethora of money soon
instead of a dearth, and that it will be
necr-.ssary to reduce in seme way the
large volume of currency which has
be»u brought into use during the crisis.
The increase in money. in circulation
outside the treasury, as shown by the
monthly statement of the treasury de
partment for November, was $131,572,
557. Of this amount the increase fn
jroM in the country «s computed at
xbout 572.<™«.<K«0. including domestic
T>rn,»uctlon as well as importations from
abroad.

Some of the clever^-persons who delighted two large au
diences at the Orpheum yesterday. Sketched by a Call staff
artist. ,
ZELIE DE LUSSAN CHARMS
TWO ORPHEUM AUDIENCES
Enthusiastic Applause Greets
Her Rendition of a
Carmen Song
It was a case of what the gallery
didn't like the orchestra and drsss cir
cle did, and vice versa, yesterday at
the Orpheum. Zelie de Lussan charmed
both parts of the house, but not at the
same time, except when she sang "her"
song, the Carmen song. "Habenera."
Then everybody applauded. Although
done without scenic assistance and
minus the kickfng of heels on the box,
the song lacked nothing of its operatic
flavor and was full of the Carmen
fire and spirit. Vocally it could not be
beat, unless Calve can do* it, which
may eartly be doubted. Besides encores,
which w<»re many, the great singer
gave" nviny popular songs as extra good
measure.
Edna Au*. in Dutch slavy character
stunt, was another bis: hit; so was Alba
d«> Voie, In a turn called "The Female
Conchas." Ray Ij. Boyce; another
newcomer, was Ftill another hit- with
his impersonations and good mono
logue. \ Ben Welch, Henri French, the
Okito family and Viola Gillette and
George Macfarlanc in their musical act
\u25a0were the holdovers, who bid fair to go
through another week easily. The mo
tion pictures were good.

LONG CRUISE OF FLEET
NECESSARY, SAYS MAHAN
Naval Authority Holds That
Its Lessons Are' Needed
by the Seamen
SPECIAL. DISPATCH TO THE CALL
NEW YORK, Dec. S.— Captain A. T.
Mahan, the naval authority, in yester
day's Issue of the Scientific American
says that the Pacific cruise which will
be begun on December 16 is Impera
tive for the sole reason that it will
give the officers and seamen practice
that they could obtain in no other way.
"The movement of the United States
battle fleet from the Atlantic to the
Pacific coast." says Captain Mahan, "is
in the highest sense' practical, because
it is precisely "the kind of movement
which the fleet of any nation may—
usually will — be required to make in
war. It Is further practical because
the United States has a Pacific as well
as an Atlantic 'coast. - but has not a
navy large enough to be divided safely
between them." i
The most useful lesson the fleet may
gain, he asserts, will be found' In the"
unexpected contingencies that will
surely arise at frequent interval?.
"It follows inevitably," he says In
conclusion, "that the fleet should "al
ways be ready, not only in a formu
lated plan, but by-* acquired experi
ence, to proceed with the utmost
rapidity, according to the definition of
mobility before suggested, from one
coast to the other as needed."
" NORFOLK, Va., T>ec. B.— Three bat
tleships were added today to the num
ber already assembled In Hampton
roads by the arrival of the Kansas,
Rhode Island and Connecticut, making
a total of 15 ships of the fleet at the
rendezvous. v "—" — -
The social function of the day of.
sreneral- mobilization and review: by
President Roosevelt will be a naval ball
given in honor of Admiral Kvans, staff
and officers of the fleet at Old Point

Thousands visited the roads today
to Ret a' glimpse of the" big vessels at
anchor p.n<l . Incoming trains were
crowded with visitors.

At .Grace church., -Sacramento arid t
Taylor streets, a large congregation
listened to an able discourse by the
rector. Rev. David Evans, which dealt
largely with the present problem of I
consolidation. "There is nothing pleas
ant in mere bigness," he said, and in
closing he added: y
"In 'an imperial city of a million j
souls there may be at first sight some- \
thing to fire the Imagination: but. truly j
Imperials it will never be unless it be j
a soulful city; unless Christ shairgov
ern its policies and give his benediction
to '. the municipal union. With his
benediction, those whom he joins to
gether man can never put asunder."
Three large audiences greeted Rev.
Benjamin "Fay Mills of Los AngeJ.es,
who spoke in Golden Gate hall. But
ter street, yesterday. He delivered
three addresses during; the Jay Tand
evening, and especially interesting was
his address en "Emerson, the Prophet-"
In the : evening Rev. Mr.' Mills spoke
on "What the V. T orld Will Never Know:
or. The Eve of a Kew Spiritual Era."
Yesterday was the feast of the im
maculate - conception in Catholic
churches throughout the citj'. At St.
Mary's high mass was ce^brated at 11
o'clock by Father Sullivan, and the
sermon delivered on \ that subject by
Rev. Father Prendergast.
SPiniT OF FORGIVK\E«S
At the Second Unitarian church.
Twentieth and Capp streets, a sermon
was delivered by Rev. Edward F. Dins-,

persons that Chrf?t condemned were
the hypocrites, and so the spirit shown
today, by people at large should be
like that shown by the Savior— the j
forgiving one. !
' The services of the Christian Science
church, Sacramento and Scott streets,
were impressive and were attended in j
large numbers. The subject -of the j
lesson sermon was "God, the Preserver
of Man." and was closed by the read- j
ing of a scientific interpretation of the j
twenty-third Psalm. •
At St. Stephen's .church Rev. Cecil

propriate to the festival, after which
Rabbi Nieto addressed 'them;
In explaining the feast Dr. N'ieto
dwelt upon the heroic deeds of the Mac
cabees and urged his pupils to emulate
their honeaty and porposet of. character.
He said- that iit was a . feast not ;only
peculiar to the Jews but one which
might teach a lesson to all the world.
"These men," he said, "despised
kingly favor and wealth in order that
they might preserve to the world the
faith of the one God. Their, honesty
and probity stands forth luminously
in history, and were our public men of.
today but to imitate their example we
should be spared the strife that has so
worried us here in San Francisco."

Father Fletcher Draws a Lesson j
From the Life of Mary
The pulpit of St. Francis' church, i
where Father Caraher usually ofneiates.j
was : filled last evening by Father j
Fletcher of Sacred Heart church, who
spoke at length on the subject of the j
Immaculate conception. He extolled
Mary, the mother of Christ, as the most j
perfect woman of th.« ages, saying that!
her absolute purity* her blamelessness, I
her freedom from the -slightest shadow j
of sin,, and rendered h«»r worthy to be- j
come; the mother of Christ. --He drew
a parallel between Mary's motherhood
and the human mother. He referred to
the historical Incident when the mother j
of Solomon went to him after he had i
ascended the throne- with her petition
and was answered in these words, "TTiy
desire is thine; for thy face must not
turn from me." -«««J
. "If therefore," the speaker added, i
"any of us asks . for his heart's desire
in the name of Mary, the blessed moth
er, should wenot believe that it will be
granted ?•* Would not our Lord, know-;
ing all that Mary had suffered In wactji
ing her beloved ; son hanging- on tfcfe
cross -for. three : Jonjf hours, \u25a0be very
patient, and merciful toward any one
who breathed a prayer In that name?

\ TO REMODEL COLISEUM
1 Big Chicago Hall to Be Improved for
[ the Convention
i CHICAGO. D«c. S.— -Delegates to the
[national republican convention -prill .find
j the Coliseum, the big- hall where the
11904 ' gathering : 'of the party vras held,'
I improved and enlarged. Just as soon
| a3 word /was received in Chicago yes
terday-that the national committee had
selected this city for the convention
', engineers and architects were told to
r&o ahead with plans for alterations
which' had been under consideration.
Thcrbig structure will be jremodeled so
as -to seat 13,000 persons^ 3,000 ..more
| than the minimum requirements of the
party leaders.
The ; building is unictue not- only for
its great seating capacity, but' for-Its
lisrht, acoustic - properties and ventila
tion. At the south end of the Coliseum
proper is an annex of two floors, either
of which is large enough to accommo
date all delegates. The upper hall
j of these' two has, galleries under the
j east and -west ends, beneath -whirh are
[rooms which mfty"be."used for commtt
! tec work. . ' \u25a0•.i>$Sgg
: The ordinary^seating-capacity of the
j groat main hair is: 10,000^ ' This can be
I lncr<=ias«>d to 12.000 • withont' overcrowd
ing, hjit present , arrangements leave
too much waste space beneath the
great galleries which encircle the main
floor. It is proposed to utilize this
spac*. by the;- construction of hanging
galleries which will accommodate 8,000
spectators. .. This \will give aT greater
J seating capacity \ than; has been avall
[ableat^any previous national conven
t tlon." "".
The Coliseum is easily accessible to
transportation lines and is witliln walk
ing distance of all the principaKhotels
[in the; downtown district.
; Few such \u25a0; buildings^ have equal . ven
[ tilation '. arrangements. .. Ls>.ke Michigan
j Is . Iesp^thars .four blocks awa jr."; and r the
interior Is coo', on the. hottest days of,
summer. *' It is" ventilated from the
' roof, in which srP: hundreds of -windows
so fashioned tKat thej* may he opened
without letting in noise from. the street.
HUGHES NOT IN EVIDENCE
New York Governor's Boom Fails to
Reach Coinmitteemen
| WASHINGTON. Dec.; S.— What im
j pressed moat of / the members of the
republican national committee daring
their meeting 'here was the .peculiar
atmosphere surrounding the socalled
movement to - nominate Governor
Hughes of New York for the presidency.
The commltteemen had read colomns
aboct Governor Hughes.~ They had been
[ informed that there was stronsr move
t ment in Xew York to \ have the dele
j gates Instructed for him.
! What they, found here were a few
New Yorkers, who were not able to say
whether the governor s even Tranted the
nomination.
.The ; New York - republCcans in con
gress spoke highly of the governor, bat
could give no intimation whether "he
was a candidate.
Under such conditions the Hushes
boom did i not : make a very deep Im- j
presslon upon the members of the com
mittee. They have gone to their homes
talking about Taft. Cortelyou. Knox,
Foraker. Cannon and even Fairbanks.
FOR THE BOURBON RALLY
Probability That Kansas City Will
. Win • Democratic Convention
WASHIKGTOX.. Dec. B.— Chairman
Taggart :of the democratic committee
arrived tonight to make arrangements
fpr the meeting of the committee. The
committee will meet at the Arling
ton hotel at noon December 12. The
prospect tonight is- that Kansis City
wil be the strongest ' competitor for
the convention.
> Senator Stone and Representative de
Armond of Missouri are doing? mission
ary, work and It is announced by "W. J.
Bryan's friends that be will throw his
influence to. the Mis»ouri town.
Bryan , .'favors a. convention a week
after the j republican convention, which
will make the date June 22 or 25. Tag
gart's friends are said to favor June
2 or 9; but two causes make either
date -improbable. One of these Is the
"Tact,- that is favored by Taggart and
another that congress will probably
not have adjourned that early.
Either Mayor Tom Johnson of Cleve
land or Committeeman Douglas of
Massachusetts possibly will be chair
man to succeed Taggart.
QUESTION OF TTBS, XOT POLITICS
WASHINGTON. Dec.' S.— "Th» selec
tion of Chicago was more a question of
bath tubs than politics." This was the
way President Roosevelt summed up
the question after he had called about
him several newspaper correspondents.
