In spite of the Intense heat, the men were put through a battle diill in which six r. g- Inients were engaged. There is considerable excitement in camp over ihe departure of the regi ::i iks ordered to Tampa.

KEY WEST, Fla., June I.— A warship just in from the blockade reports that o>i Sunday morning a small Spanish gunboat came out of Havana and ran along the line of batteries close in shore. Yesterday she again came out, venturing over two miles from land. She was chased and one shot was fired at her, whereupon she scudded back to port. On Monday night, a warship of the blocka.de squadron approached within five miles of Havana, clearly distin guishing whole rows of lighted streets, thus contradicting the rumors of Hava na being in darkness. The commander of the warship said new fortifications are in course of construction on Mor ro heights. The Uncas, which arrived this morn ing, reports that on Monday last, when about a mile and a half west of Matan zas light house, she sighted a Spanish block house on shore. Taking up a position about 600 yards off shore, the Uncas fired two shots at the house and the two shells went clear through the building, which was wrecked. SNEAK BOBS AN OFFICE. Joseph Breanlt, Wood and Coal Jinn, I.OHCS SjKiO. It cost Joseph Breault, the proprietor of a wood yard at 467 Jackson street, $30 yesterday afternoon to leave his office for fifteen minutes while he help ed one of his teamsters load a cord of wood. During his absence a sneak thief visited tne office and got away with the cash in an unlocked safe. The office is situated close to the sidewalk, with both a front and a rear entrance, and, though Mr. Breault was not more than twenty-five feet away from a side window where he could view the interior, it was not difficult for the thief to secure the money. He had doubtless been watching the fuel Iran's action, and probably slipped in the rear door, quickly appropriated the safe cash drawer containing the money and disappeared by way of the front entrance. The thief's operations were hurried, as he left $12 in a sec ond drawer, which is supposed to con tain only papers. The police were notified of the theft, and Detective Werrick was detailed on the case.

Staff Correspondence The St. Paul Globe. CAMP MERRITT, San Francisco, Cal., May 27.— There is a tradition hi San Francisco that a saloonkeeper once threatened to close his saloon on a Sun day on account of a death in his family, and his license was revoked. Since that time no saloon in 'Frisco has | ever been known to be closed, At any rate no saloon has been closed since the volunteer army began to mobilize at Camp Merrltt. Everything in the city of the Golden Gate is wide open day and night, and soldiers on leave have no difficulty in finding all the entertain ment and refreshments they want. But Col. Reeve has curtailed the lib erty allowed his men at first, because, he says, they are all good fellows, and as commander of the regiment he feels responsible for their welfare. He be lieved that there were too many temp tations for the men in the city, especial ly in the Chinatown district, and he issued an order that no passes should be issued except to men in whom the captains have the utmost confidence, and tio pass is for a later hour than 10 o'clock. The result of this order is that the Minnesota regiment is the most orderly in the camp and the most popular with the citizens of San Francisco. A Min nesota uniform is a guarantee that the wearer is a gentleman and he is re spected as such. ...-■• The craze for "doing" Cfrir.. "T.vn struck Chaplain Cre^sey several nights ago, and he accompanied some officers through the district. The next night Chief Hospital Steward Grau made a tour of the place and wherever he visited he was told that the chaplain had been there the previous evening. His Red Cross chevrons puzzled the people of Chinatown and they asked him if he was the assistant chaplain. Chaplain Cressey and Steward Grau visited the Cliff Hoai3e and walked along the sandy beach, which runs south of the hotel. Becoming tired they stretched themselves on the sand and fell asleep. The afternoon sun was warm, and the two slee-pers remained for several hours unconscious of their surround ings, when they were awakened by a burning sensation and discovered t-hat their faces were blistered from the sun. They made haste back to camp, and have since been busy peeling long" strips of cuticle from their faces. The remarkable hospitality of the people of San Francisco shows no abatement. On Thursday evening Mrs. Alma E. Keith entertained a party of officers from the Minnesota, Nebraska and Kansas regiments, at her home in the city. Not one of her guests was known by name to her, but she receiv ed them as though they were all old friends, and they had a delightful time. Miss Pearl Noble, a daughter of Quar termaster Noble, U. S. A., played a cornet, and the following morning she visited the Minnesota camp and blew the bugle calls for extended order drill, which was held in Golden Gate park. Miss Noble has several sisters who are also accomplished musicians. The Rev. Father Coyle, of St. Ag nes Catholic church, visited the camp Monday, and the next day he sent to Capt. Robinson, of Company C, a great quantity of roast beef, roast mutton, sandwiches, cakes, fruit, strawberries, doughnuts, milk, two dozen hams, and towels, soap and handkerchiefs for the men of the company. The boys ate the food with relish, and, gathering in the company street, they gave three hearty cheers for Father Coyle. A number of Red Cross ladies have presented woolen night caps to all the men in the regiment. These caps cover the head and neck like a cowl and are very comfortable to sleep in. They prevent the men from catching cold when sleeping on the ground, and are a valuable and much appreciated ad junct to the men's outfits. Nearly ev ery man is also provided with pin cushions, which were presented to the Don't Stop Tobacco SUDDENLY.

A large box of the cushions was handed to- the first sergeant of each' company, who dis tributed them to the 'boys. The donors said they did not wish their names to be known. While the men were at dinner mess Friday a wagon was driven up to the fence and the driver announced that he had a load of presents for the men. There was a rush over the fence, and each man was handed a large square box which, upon being opened, was found to contain sandwiches, fruit and cake. A few moments later another wagon arrived with a load of pies, and there was another scramble. But there was nic for all, and no man was over looked. Capt. Robinson, of Company C, was riding down town in a Geary street cable car Thursday afternoon, when a stranger sitting beside him turned to him and said: ■"Captain, you may not get cigars to smoke between San Francisco and Manila. Let me present you with one." Captain Robinson accepted the invi tation, and they got off the car and entered a cigar store. There the stranger purchased a box of fifty ci gars, for which he paid $4.50, and pre sented it to the astonished captain. "I never saw the man in my life be fore and may never see him again," paid Capt. Robinson when he exhibited his present. "I don't even know his name. These San Francisco people are 1 certainly generous." An amusing incident, and yet one that caused no little embarrassment to at least two persons, occurred Thurs day morning. A very attractive look ing French woman called upon Hospi tal Steward Grau and presented a basketful of prunes for him for the sick. She was accompanied by a lit tle girl. Steward Grau thanked the woman for the prunes and said they would be of great benefit to the pa tients. Turning to the little girl, the woman said: "Now, aren't you glad you brought those prunes to the sick soldiers?" ( "Yes," said the little girl innocently, "and mama will be very glad to get rid of them, for she said they had been in the house so long they are all spoil ed." Tableau! Bugler Joe Groh, of Company C, had his pocket picked at Sacramento and his silver watch was stolen. He made a report of it at the time and discov ered that the chief of police of that city is an old St. Paul man. Friday he received the watch from the chief of police, who reported that he had cap tured the thief and had him sent to jail. Capt. Seebaeh, of Company G, on Fri day read the regular army regulations regarding the care of men in the field. He warned the men to exercise the utmost caution to prevent disease and sickness in eanjp. , — Evan M. Jones. COMPANY W, THIRTEENTH. St. Cloud Coys Happy ana Glad They Started.

When the company "found" them selves they were so near the ocean that they decided to go on and marched down to th = shore and around by the Cliff house and Seal park. It was the first sight of the ocean for many of the boys and was quite a novelty. The company took the street cars back to camp and arrived just in time for dinrer.

In the Stocking case yesterday the defense of the plaintiff to the charge made in the demand for a cross bill was begun. It was demonstrated that 'Mr. Stocking's case will be a denial of the charge of an existent disease that .would be a cause for divorce. When Mr. Stocking himself took the stand he proceeded to give such testimony as would go to show that Mrs. Stocking was not disaffected to him herself, but that she was influenced by her people in separating from him. The morning session in Judge Lewis' court was given up to more of the un printable expert testimony that was ad' duced on the previous day. Dr. Day, who had been the family physician of Mr. Stocking for a quar ter of a century, went on the stand, and said in effect that he had exam ined the physical condition of the plain tiff May 3, 1596, and that at that time he gave no evidence of suffering from the disease in question. This was im portant, in view of the fact that the marriage took place but two weeks be fore. Dr. Wheaton said that the conditions testified to as being proof of the pres ence of infection \>y the disease, given by Drs. Lufkin, Butler and Allen, would not really indicate the presence of the disease, the testimony being a body blow for the contention of Mr. Tighe. The doctor said that the con dition of Mr. Stocking's mouth would simply show the presence of stomatitis, a local condition obtaining in certain stomach troubles. He had examined Mr. Stocking in September, 1897. Mr. Stocking took the stand in the af ternoon, and a great portion of his tes timony went to the explanation of let- Field, Schlick & Co.

Two cases of White Goods came to us the other day at a ters that were already in or were put in evidence. His testimony went particularly to the showing of the alleged fact that his relations with his wife had been smicable after the time when she had written him that things had come to her knowledge which prevented her living with him again. It seemed that he had got a letter from her on Christ mas day. 1896, in which she told what she had been told had occurred physi cally. He wrote her at once and fol lowed the letter up personally, going to Cincinnati the same night. She had met him there and had gone to the same hotel with him. While he was leading up to this part of his testimony, Mrs. Stocking's usual pallid face flushed to a rosy tint. "We went to a room In the hotel," said Mr. Stocking, "and had a long talk — the only candid talk we ever had. She told me that she kn^w there was nothing in the charge she had made. I asked her if she was going back to her folks at St. Thomas, and she paid no. Then I told her I would go down stairs and order a room for her if she left the hotel. She told me that she would scream If I left the room. She said: 'You don't like my folks, and I don't like your daughter, and that is all the trouble there is.' "The next day she went hack to her sisters, and I came to St. Paul to ar range my affairs so that I might ac company her- to wherever she desired to go for the winter." Here another letter was introduced, which was written after this interview at Cincinnati, which was couched by Mrs. Stocking in the most affectionate of terms and indicated that they would soon meet. It is not likely that the trial will be concluded today. CITY TBEASURER'S BOND. QneMton of n Surety Company Aprain Discussed. The assembly committee on ways and means discussed the question of the city treasurer furnishing a surety bond for en hour or more yesterday afternoon, and (hen adjourned until this afternoon, when the on sidpration of the subject will be renew.-d. Under the charter the treasurer Is oblig-d to give a bond in the sum of $500, C00, the sureties to be passed, on by the council. The legislature in 1893, however, passed a lav. 1 allowing surety bonds In ca-es cf this kind to be accepted in place of personal bonds. City Treasurer Horst Informed the counc'l that he had recolvrd a communication from the United States Fidelity company, of BalM n:ore. offering to furnish a bond for $I.' CO for the first year and $750 for the second year. The American Bonding and Trust company and the Fidelity and Deposit company, boh of Baltimore, also submitted to the com mittee a proposition to jointly furnish a bond for $2.5i;0 per year. The committee discussed the pronosit!ons. and, as there seemed to be a wide difference !n the premium to be paid, laid the matter over until this afternoon. Corporation Attorney Markham informed the committee that the premium could be paid from the fund of $10,000 wh'c^i in got apart each year in the tax budget for the best interests ct the city.'
