statesmen and journalists who arrived
here yesterday from the southern part
of the state. The party is headed by

publisher of the Journal do Brasil, one
of the largest publications in South
America. He is also permanent secre
tary of the Brazilian exposition com
mission ami his visit here at this tfme
is. therefore, of more than usual in
terest,

STEAMSHIP I,l\E KXCOIRAGKD
Principal among the commercial re
lations Count MendPS encourages here
is the establishment of a steamship
line between Rio de Janeiro and the
ports of San Francisco and San Diego.
'"Our products are now sent to New
York and London by steamship," Count
Jlmde.s said yesterday. "New York
ppt.s the advantage of nearly all our
exchanges. We in Brazil are looking
forward to the opening of the Panama
canal, when we may deal directly with
the ocean ports of California. We want
to send coffee, cocoanuts and leather to
California and in exchange we will
Import California fruits, wine and sun
dry other products."
Count Mendes attended the congress
of international Chambers of Com
merop in Boston and as president of
the delegation represented his country
at the International Rubber exposition
held in New York. He was met in the

Doctor Dahne has delivered a num
ber of addresses on this visit to com
mercial organizations, presenting the
resources of Brazil in word and picture
ainl inviting closer relations between
the two countries. He has a number
of slides which he has used in his lec
tures to lend an additional interest to
his remarks.
Although Count Mendes is secretary
of the permanent exposition commis
sion, he declares that his visit to this
city is purely informal and that he
fUsires to make a study of what is
being accomplished in the building of
tho great exposition here and the ex
position at San Diego before he makes
an authoritative report to the Brazilian
legislature, which meets in the spring.
Countess Mendes is prominent in so
cial circles in Rio de Janeiro and among
the poor is noted for her sympathetic
nature and quick response to the call
of the needy. She is a woman of
s>riking beauty and is fond of outdoor
sports, particularly horseback riding.

ber of Brazilian society. She has visited

'FREE WOOD' HUNG
OUT AT PRESIDIO
Only Condition Is That Big Trees
Be Dug Up by Roots and
Foliage Burned
There's a chance for some husky per
son who is handy with an ax to lay
in a supply of perfectly good eucalyp
tus wood, absolutely free of charge.
The wood is growing at the Presidio,
and the only requirements are that the
big trees be dug up by the roots and
the leaves and branches be burned. The
trees must be thinned out to prevent
the entire grove dying* in a dry spell, j
* * *
Soldiers, beware.
Colonel Gardener has issued a stern ;
mandate against any soldier stationed
at the Presidio being absent from his
company more than two days—and,
that's the limit—under penalty of being'
taken up by the police, dragged down
to the city bastile and looked up to
await a guard of soldiers from his
own company that will be sent to
bring the delinquent to the Presidio.
This applies, of course, to those who
are absent without special leave of
absence. The chief of police will be
requested by the company commander
to arrest the absentee, whose general
description will be furnished, and hold
him for the military authorities.
* ♦ *
Many Presidio teamsters, who have
refused to enlist for the seven year
term, will lose their positions under
the new consolidation act. Major Ken
sey J Hampton, quartermaster corps,
said yesterday that out of about 75
teamsters nearly half had refused point
blank to enlist in the service, although
it meant giving up their jobs.
The only thing that stands in the
way of the Presidio bands playing in
Golden Gate park, as has been re
quested by civic organizations and by
private citizens who live in the vi
cinity of the park, is the fact that
transportation facilities are not ade
quate to convey the bandsmen to and
from the public's playground. Major
General Murray has giver, permission
for the army bands to practice at
Golden Gate park. It is understood
that the Musicians' union has with
drawn its objections, so all that re
mains is for some one to arrange a
means of transportation. The Presidio
quartermaster says that he can not do
it. because of a lack of horses and
wagons.
Mrs. E A. Anderson, wife of Lieu
tenant E. A. Anderson, medical reserve
corps, is ill at the home of Major and

Barbary Coast Visitors
Crossfield Barr, eretwhtle cow
puncher, has had one long streak of
hard luck. Hβ Is 7 feet 6 inches tall
and his extreme height appears to
have been the cause of his bad luck.
He left the Texas range to join a
circus and made good as a dyed in the
■wool compuncher, but as a moving
picture Adonis he was much to the
bad.
When the circus consolidated with a
moving picture company he was too
tall to get in most of the pictures and
lost his Job.
He got a place as "bouncer" in a
Barbary coast resort, and Wednesday
night, when a small man tola him "You
are too big for a small job and too
small for a big job," he resented the
remark.
He was arrested for carrying con
cealed weapons and the police hold a
great revolver as evidence against him.
