The corridors of the Palace Hotel pre
sented an exceedingly warm and auimated
appearance for a while yesterday after-
A buzz of conversation rose in the
air, and the breaths of many of the talkers,
richly laden from the spice-giving quarters
of the b;ir, uiiide a disinterested onlooker
imagine ti at the great hostelry was planted
somewhere in Ceylon. Delegates to a
1 X nitiTatie convention are seldom accused
of lack of animation, and certainly the
crowd tiierc was not wanting in life.
Suddenly ■ cold draft swept through the
( mcc as if a section of Sun Francisco fo(?
had floated in through the open door and
drifted ever nrar tbe clerk's desk. A
shiver ran through ail present Delegates
from the South eagerly sought the cloak
room for their overcoats, and those who
were i ag at the hotel buttoned up
tlicir collars iigninst the chilly air.
All lo ked for the source of the uncon
il vtmd. aud lo! Candidate Pond, with
reproacbable manner and icy smile,
. nt the doorway looking in. There
was an immediate and hasty rash by the
waggi hlj inclined to the warming influence
ol the bar-room in the rear.
Vi hat a curious thing is that smile of
Mr. Pond's 1 and how siosularly It fails to
light up the contour of his face I His upper
lip is smooth and freshly shaven ; the beard
beneath is certainly the daily care of the
most talented of San Francisco's barbers.
To see a single hair of that beard out of
place would doubtless throw his friends
into convulsions of astonishment. When
lie smiles the clean upper lip raises to just
fench a height above t\i% lower, a festive
Wniikle appears about the corners of the
eyes, thy precise lip drops again and the
-;mile is me. The upper lip goes to just
t'lel; a . :^l,t— no higher and no lower—
mid the only thing remembered by the re
i;;ie.i! of the eiinle is a set of brilliantly
Tl;e r.uter of the men who surrounded
Alj-. I'otitl was significant. They were past
middle we, well dressed, calm, non-com
mittal, and bore the air of those whose
bank accounts were in a satisfactory con
dition. Al attempt was made to interview
Mr. Pond and his friends but without suc
cess.- They were all very pleasant, but
none 'admitted that they knew auj thing
beyond the fact that Mr. Pond was a cau
didate. At last, however, one of his fol
lowers was caught away from the rest aud
induced to unbosom himself just a little.
A FRIEND'S estimate.
"Mr. Pond," said this gentleman, "will
certainly get the nomination. The people
of the SUite demand it, and the people will
count in this convention. Of course, you
and 1 know that primaries aud conventions
can be manipulated to record another ver
dict than the voice of the people; but this
convention is not one of that kind. The
Democrats of this State realize that they
have a very hard fight to win and they will
nut tolerate a man at. the head of their
ticket who does not draw upon the full
tonlidtuce of me people. Mr. Pond does
this, and while a certain amount of spora
dic enthusiasm may be generated for ex
treme youth or for a barrel, tho good sense
( ( the convention is going to prevail and
Mr. Pond will be their choice."
"Then you don't expect him to lead in

COLEMAX GAINING GKOI/NI).
Notwithstanding the confidence of Mr.
j ; uu(i'= supporters, Ci iii's strength cou
tmuus to steadily show an increase. The
caudidncy of this young man with the cal
culating brow and genial manner, which.
hi first, was looked upon as a mere politi
cal incident, is proving to be a very serious
affair to his opponents. There is certainly
si .arge fund of enthusiastic energy dis
played by his supporters, ana it Is an en
thusiasm which is growing, with no signs
of flashing in the pan.
It is slowly dawning upon the minds of
liis opponents that be is a general in con
v-.'iilion warfare, and the cloud of anxiety
discernible upon their brows is due to the
fact that the reported weakness in Cole
luau's following does not materialize.
A GOOD LISTENER.
Cole::,un himself continues to be always
on his feet in the hotel corridors, and in
cessantly at work in a quiet way. The
atest strength of his manner lies in his
qualities as a listener. He is one of the
best listeners in California. The rapt at
t nidi :i which he will pay to the chestnuty
story of a tiresomedelegate would be laugh
:. tile if it did not excite admiration. Heap
pears to be completely absorbed in what the
otner says, and occasional remarks of ap
-1 reeiation which he gives utterance to, now
hiiu: again, show that he is really listening.
Verily, it is a good trick. The delegate
coes away impressed with the mental acu
men ol the young man.
The tall, lean figure of R. D. Stephens,
candidate for Controller, haunts the corri
dors like the ghost of Don Quixote, whose
double lie might well be taken to be. His
grayish, straggling, pointed beard vibrates
close to the ear of many a delegate, and his
thin legs never seem to tire of carrying him
around from group to group. Mr. Stephens
thinks he has a pretty sure tiling of the
nomination, and, indeed, surface indica
tions lather bear out his claim ; but, woe to
me. Alhama! Conventions are uncertain
. The progress of events seem to bear out
the claim that Byron Waters will be Chair
man of the convention. The protestations
of C'nleman that he has no candidate and
that the choice of the convention will be
acceptable to him are made in that earnest
tone which has the ring of truth and dis
poses of the assertion that Jiiumie .Murphy
is backed up by the young man's cohorts.
If this be true, it will let Major Hammond
down with a dull thud, for, certainly, Wa
ters is in favor with the delegates.
Colonel Markham arrived at the Palace
Hotel from Sacramento at about half-past
8 last night. He received a big ovation
the moment he appeared in the doors. A
• great crowd was around him at once, every
body struggling for the honor of shaking
He seemed in danger of being completely
i vi : v, helmed by the madrush of his friends,
until some of them formed a guard arouud
him and escorted him upstairs. It was a
splendid outburst of enthusiasm, as spon
taneous as it was genuine.
Colonel Markham came downstairs again
at about half-past 'J o'clock, when the crowd
had somewhat thinned out. He was imme
diately surrounded, though not by so great
a crowd as before. His line personal ap
pearance and magnetic manner caused
favorable comment among the Democrats.
Tall, swarthy, handsome and with piercing
eyes, he tilled the imagination and satisfied
MEETING OF THE RIVALS..
A significant thins occurred while he was
in the hotel corridor. H» met both Mayor
Pond ami Mr. English and shook them by
the hand. The meeting did not attract un
usual attention. Presently Air. Coleman
was seen advancing toward him from the
other side of the room. Immediately the
buzz of conversation ceased,aad all stretched
their necks to witness the meeting. When
tbe two men shook hands a subdued mur
mur ran through the lobby, and the hum oi
conversation recommenced, though all eyes
. were still fastened on the two men.
'"Say," exclaimed a delegate from a north
ern county, "do you know that Cole man's
light is going to be a great deal line Murk
liaiuV.' Colemau has the same sort of en
thusiastic supporters behind him that
Markham had — men who are for their
choice through thick and thin."
A chorus of assent came from the crowd
to which he was talking.
1..MU.1-U LOSING fiEOUND.
It begins to look as though English was
losing strength. Thero appears to ho no
well-delined element behind him as there is
behind Coleman and Pond. Coleman has
the yi'iinu, aggressive, hurrah boys fac
tion lvhtius for him. P,,nd is certainly
backed by the conservative, eminently re
spectable element of the party, while En
glish seems to have supporters from all
over the State ana from all sections of the
party, hut there seems to be no well-delined
element pushing his nomination. His sup
port is more or less personal and lukewarm.
It seems to come from men who reeogniza
his services to the party and feel grateful
theiefi.r, but that kind of support cannot
be depended upon to stay in the trenches
COI.JSMAN GAIJfING BTBENGTH.
It is apparent that Coleman is gaining
strength hourly. His supporters are all in
» jubilant frame of mind and highly con
liut'nt of success. Pond's men, on the con
tiary, aiid also the English guard wear an
vi <y frown under their umiles.
figures given Thursday as to the stand
ing of the Coleman strength were changed I
yesterday. For instance, his vote in Los
Angeles, quoted at 32, is now said to be 37.
Other counties are accredited with similar
changes in his favor and nowhere is there
a whisper of anybody going back on his
General Carey, so far, has no opposing
candidate for t-lie oflice of Attorney-Gen
era). John Kittrell of Modesto and John
T. Harrington of Colusa are both men
tioned as candidates, but neither appear to
be in it. Kiltrell cannot get the support of
his own county delegation on account or
the candidacy of J. D. Spencer for Clerk of
the Supreme Court. Spencer is from the
same county and the delegation is afraid 01
asking too much. Harrington, it is said,
has been persuaded to withdraw from the
fight by his own friends. The lack of can
didates for this office excites surprise, as
General Carey has a great deal of personal
opposition among the delegates, and an
eligible man would carry off the plum.
( (..\yi:ntiox OFFICERS.
A. C. Berthier of San Francisco and W.
II Dwyerol Fresno are each working hard
for the Secretaryship of the convention.
Berthier has the support of the solid San
Francisco delegation and will probably
win, since the San Francisco delegation are
not asking for the Chairmanship. It is
quite likely, however, that Dwyer will be
selected as an assistant.

Yesterday afternoon pedestrians at the
lower end of Market street had their at

aged woman who was running after an
express wagon, which was being driven
rapidly down toward the ferry landing.
The woman shouted as she ran and at
tracted the attention of the driver, who
pulled up at the corner of Market and
As soon as the wagon came to a stand
still a well-dressed man, who was on the
seat with the driver, jumped off with a
valise in hand and entered the drug-store
through the front door and emerged through
the door on the side. The woman met him
there and gave him a good tongue-lashing.
The man went down to the ferry and
dodged in ami Ml among the cars and the
entrances. Wherever he went she followed
close at his heels.
Finally he asked the police to arrest the
woman for annoying him, but she had done
nothing to break the peace, aud they would
not do it. The woman wanted to have him
arrested. She said he was a Frenchman,
named Louis lianzet, that she had lived
with him for two years as his wife, and be
was trying to run away from her and go
East. The police, of course, could do noth
ing in the matter.
After dodging about for half an hour,
Ranzet boarded a Valencia-street cable-car
that was pulling out. The, woman hailed
the car and sat alongside him on the dum

claimed the toss from the last lace, which en
titled me to the southern shore again. Wuen I
did so they agreed, but stalled us on the other
side of the i Her. 1 was out In mid stream, and
this gave Siausbury tue advantage of having the
oilier shore and tlie shelter of ill; mile prim. I
steered badly, not knowing the river well, es
pecially Iroru that si.i- , as 1 bad never started
oui mere before. I was leading by two lengths
al three-quarters of a mile and we were bniu In
the same kind or water. 1 wan holding my own
a llllle better, but directly he cot hi the eddy 1
was steel out In tue river and he got ahead of
me. 1 bad iliea no chance acainsl a man of Ills
power In that kind of water. I know no
more now than before X left home, 1
do not like to pass an opinion on btansbury. He
has beaten me, but he has not convinced me
that he Is any such mail as Searle was. 1 have
not decided exactly what 1 am going to do yet,
but 1 shall not leave h-re for some little tune.
I may make a match with some of the others,
but If' I do I will alter the starling-point if the
race Is to be pulled on the l'aiaui.itta Klver. If
I row Kemp fur the championship 1 will row
him on the Nepean ltiver. 'A person coming to
ihu country has not an even chance In a race, an

without cutters has no chance against those
Drought up here— ln fact such a person would
have to be once and a half as good to beat them.
It was not oil inyCcondiiiou that 1 was beaten.
I was never In belter condition In my life. lam
not sure whether I made a mistake In changing my
rig, but Idou'i think 1 rowed quite as well as I
ought on form, and I seemed to he a little un
steady on ilie High seat. I don't think I had
quite time to get down as line oil It as 1 might.
Matterson and Brown are matched to row In
about a month's time, and there Is some lain of
a in.i.. h being KOI up between McLean ami my
self. I would like to row Kemp for the champ

J. D. Hammond of this city, who crossed
the lake to welcome the Californians and
journey with them to Glenbrook, which

every evening since. A lady attending the
assembly writes The Caix as follows con
cerning the opening: "After supper we
wended our way to the old saw-mill, which
has been transformed into a hall for meet
ing purposes especially for this occasion.
It is a primitive structure indeed,
bat it is capacious, well ventilated
and thoroughly pleasaut, with its rough
platform and seats made of planks resting
on saw-horses. Many a big enterprise in
America has started in as roueh and plain
a way. Here at the appointed hour gath
ered a goodly assemblage of sensible,
strong-faced mountain folk, with a sprink
ling of more polished and moderu-looklng
people from the neighboring towns of Car

men and children, averaging well in looks
and intelligence wilh the audiences which

business"— "l cannot toil a He." l will new tell a
lie; for If I should say that I can take out a tooth
without pain, using no Anesthetics, that would be
'an untruth— any child knows better; and if I should
say that an oporatlon can be performed upon any
part of the human body, with any kind of surgical
instrument, without causing some pain, that also
would be false, as any surgeon will admit, and no
oho would believe It. But what Ido say Is this : I
extract teeth and the patients FEEL NO PAIN.
