During the day Maj. Hand dropped
in on LU ut. Donaldson and was mus

Chief Black, of the Duluth fire de
partment, presented Col. Shandrew
with two ideal folding cajnp chairs.
They are beauties. Th?y are not only
substantially made, but are so con
structed that they can be folded into
almost as small a compass as one of
the ordinary camp stools. They will
accompany the Fifteenth regiment dur
ing all the vicissitudes that may be
in store for It.
An elegant color stand adorned the
front of the colonel's quarters yester
c';;y afternoon, also. It was manufac

says that he saved the state some $8.5}

The heat became so oppressive dur
ing the afternoon that general orders
were issued by Col. Shandrew dis
pensing with the 4:30 p. m. drill. It
was a popular order with the boys.
There were only four soldiers in the
hospital yesterday, although there were
sixty-three responses to sick call In
the morning. Most of them were suf
fering from the effects of the change j
of water.
By tonight the Fifteenth will be usin* j
405 tents; eight tents 9x9 will be used i
for headquarters; ten, 9 1 -ixl4, general
headquarters; nine hospital tents with j
flys will be u=od as follows: Col. Shan
drew one, Adjt. Catlin 1, guard hous3 !
1 and six for h-.spital purposes, general :
headquarters for field and staff, and j
headquarters mess, ard cook tent.
The understanding with Contractor j
Baunden was amicably adjusted yes
terday. No one but Saunders suffers
by this mistake. Col. Shandrew has
adopted the old English army scheme
for tent gun rack. Two lines are
stretched from the front to the rear
tent pole and the muzzles of the gun
barrel are entwined between them, the
butts resting on a board ground to re
ceive them. This leaves a long portion I
of the line to be used by the inmates
of the tent to hang clothing, etc., upon.
The system is proving popular with
the boys.

is due not only to the originality and
simplicity of the combination, but also
• to the care and skill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes
known to the California Fig Sybup
Co. only, and we wish to impress upon
all the importance of purchasing the
true and original remedy. As the
genuine Syrup of Figs is manufactured
by the California Fig Sykup Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding the worthless
imitations manufactured by other par
ties. The high standing of the CALI
FORNIA Fig Sykup Co. with the medi
cal profession, and the satisfaction
which the genuine Syrup of Figs has
given to millions of families, makes
the name of the Company a guaranty
of the excellence of its remedy. It is
far in advance of all other laxatives,
as it acts on the kidneys, liver and
bowels without irritating or weaken
ing them, and it does not gripe nor
nauseate. In order to get its beneficial
effects, please remember the name of
the Company —

HONOLULU, July 6.— Four trans
ports of the third Philippine expedition
are at anchor in the harbor. The City
of Para was first to reach port. It pass
ed the reef at 6 o'clock yesterday morn
ing, and was followed four hours later
! by the Ohio. The Indiana came to an
j chor at 5 o'clock this morning, and six
I hours afterwards the Morgan City
! steamed in. The monitor Monadnock
I and collier Brutus made the run in ten
j days, and joined the gunboat Mohican
jon Sunday evening. Neither the New
port nor the Valencia has reached port.
The island republic welcomed the
fleet with banners flying and trumpet?
| sounding. The pteamer Maui met each
; transport off Diamond Head, and acted
as escort into the harbor. Col. J. H.
Cooper, chairman of the reception com
mittee, represented President Dole. The
■ Hawaiian band aroused the patriofsm j
of the troops with a programme made
up largely of American and Hawaiian
! national aiis.
Honolulu was ablaze with American
colors. Men and women of all shades
i and nationalities wore the red, white
and blue. Invitations to feast ashore
were extended. Programmes, includ
ing base ball,, surf bathing, excursions
to the interior, and a ball, were offer
At noon Gen. Mac Arthur, command
ing the expedition; Col. Ovenshine,
commanding troops of the Indiana;
Col. Reeve, of the Thirteenth Minne
sota, and Col. Van Valsah, of the
Eighteenth infantry, called on Presi
dent Dole.
At 1 o'clock 3,000 troops were given
a dinner on the executive grounds. To
| morrow the rest will be feasted. A ru- i
I mor was current that the expedition
might remain here for several weeks,
; but this was denied by Gen. Mac
j Arthur.
"We will wait for ths Newpart," said i
j lie, '"and be governed by the orders it '
: brings. I think we will be on our way [
! in two days." The Ohio and Para are |
1 coaling and the work of lightering coal :
j into the Indiana and Morgan City will
l begin immediately. All the troops will
' be drilled ashore daiiy. The Minnesota
j regin-<rit gave an exhibition drill in j
i the ball park today and rather aston- j
< ifhed the Hawaiians.
Beyond the vicissitude of a wild sea
for two days, the troops came through j
i in good condition.
On Tuesday morning sealed orders
■ were opened. The fleet was instructed ■
i to separate and proceed by different !
| routes to Honolulu. The Ohio and City !
! of Para were then abeam of the In- ■
diana and the Morgan City a mile ;
! astern. All were tossing lika corks. A
i detachment of the signal corp?, more
| de-ad than alive, signaled the orders to j
the transports. The Ohio soon began
to show its heel?, and at sundown was
! a full ten miks in the lead- The In
i diana led the others five mile?.
On Wednesday came smooth seas and
i balmy breezes. Officers and men re-
I covered rapidly. Military discipline i
I again prevailed and the usual routine j
or an army post was carried out. The
separation of the transports caused '
lively comment. It was" said the gov- j
' eminent had information of a privateer j
|in the Pacific. The horizon was scan- j
I ned for something Spanish, but noth- j
; ir.g Spanish turned up.
Independence day was honored and i
patriotism extolled on the flagship. Gen. j
, Mac Arthur made a short address. Maj. j
i Keleher read the Declaration of Inde- j
pendencc, and Maj. H. M. Lord deliver- j
ed the oration. "America" and the !
1 "Battle Hymn of the Republic" wore j
' sung. The Twenty-third Infantry band ]
' played national airs. Maj. Lord arous- ]
! c-d the troops to a high pitch, and the
'■ cheering which followed his effort con
tinued for five minutes. Double ra
■ tions and fruit were served to the men,
■ and in the evening there was a di?play
of fireworks which must have aston
ished the flying fish. All this on the
silent Pacific, 1,700 miles southwest of
San Francisco. It was the first cele-
I bration of the day on board a govern
i nient vessel carrying troops for foreign
| conquest. Similar exercises took place
j on all the transports.

teenth at San Francisco.
CAMP MERRITT, San Francisco,
July 15.— Recruits of the Thirteenth
i Minnesota at Camp Merritt last even
i ing at battalion parade received the
I orders which will send them across the
Pacific to join the main body of the
regiment in the Philippines. The or
! der read in substance:
j The Eighth ar;ny corps of the independent
! division, consisting of the Thirteenth Minne
sota, the First Colorado, the First Nebraska
and the Seventh California recruits, will hold
themselves in readiness to embark on the
City of St. Paul Thursday, July 21, for the
Philippine islands.
—Major General Otis.
As yet the Minnesota recruits, in
I common with some of the other re
• cruits, are not completely outfitted
! and equipped. Supplies will be loaded
j directly onto the City of St. Paul with
j the understanding that distribution
I shall be carried on after departure.
There are some 300 of the Minnesota
! recruits. The Nebraska and Colorado
j men designated are also understood to
be recruits, but the Seventh California
!is a full regiment of 1,350 men. This
. will give a total for the expedition, as
' It is announced, of about 2,200 men, as
' the recruits allotted to each regiment
] total about 300 in each case. Maj. Dig-
I gles has been one of the commanding
I officers of Camp Merritt, and as such
! the City of St. Paul will probably be
placed under his authority.
Lieut. Hugh Scott, acting quarter
i master, will probably have charge of
i the cargo, which is to be loaded on the
St. Paul. Minnesota men are under
stood to be now guarding the City of
St. Paul.
Cowboys Under Command of Coll
GrisHby on S!io>tv.
CHICKAMAUGA, July IB.— (Special.)— The
Grtgsby rough riders were reviewed taday and
the ceremony in the cavalry camp was a
feature of the day. The boys have been busy
getting their horses In good condition for
some days, and the cavalry made a fine ap
pearance on review. The cowboys have been
drilling regularly every day, mounted, and
are rapidly becoming experts on their horses.
Maj. French's Black Hills squadron is one of
the finest drilled body of men in the cava'ry
brigade. This squadron has been at work al
most wholly on the rapid movement drill.
One of the most interesting characters at
Camp Thomas is Maj. Hugh Gordon, Eon of
the noted Confederate general, John B. Gord
on. He belongs to the First Georgia rogl
ment. Today Maj. Gordon received a fine
new horse, the gift of his father.
The routine in the Twelfth took a slight
change this week. Reveille sounds at 4:40
instead of 5, and drill commences at 6:30 a.
m. Instead of 7, recall sounding at 8:30, mak
ing the morning drill one-half hour shorter,
which the boys appreciate very much. Other
changes throughout are made accordingly.

Marvelous Bargain Making
Till Ten O'clock Tonight.
We're sure of a busy store and no profits all through July. No trouble
in selling goods at prices we make this month. But stocks must be
adjusted before the Autumn goods come. We put the biggest pressure
on the things that are strictly Summer's, and mark them so cheap that
a dull day is impossible. It will pay you to read every line of our
"ads" both today and hereafter. We may use less large type than in
busy season, but we'll make bargains greater.
