HOW THE ARKITES ENTERTAIN.
The Affair Was a Success From
Beginning to End and Was
Never in the history of Tibnron and
Belvedere did the cove present as beautiful
a sight as it did last night. It seemed as
if the elements had been at work tie week
previous to make ihe night as perfect as
possible. And it, was perfect. The water
was as smooth as glass, the air warm and
pleasant and the sky overhead like a vault
of rale amethyst. It was an ideal "night
in Venice" that the people living on the
hUla had been longing for.
The postponement last Saturday on ac
count of the bad weather only served to
increase their enthusiasm and additional
efforts were pat forth to make the great
water fete a success. Indeed there is little
doubt but that arrangements were much
more perlect than if everything had been
well last Saturday, although every
was ready at that time and kept "open

■were covered with bunting and Hags, and
from the roofs and sides of Hie many arks
Chinese lanterns and bunting were sur.
ponded. Every ark in the lagoon wai
prettily decorated, but, of course, some
looked nicer than others.
The ark Pollywog was managed in an
extremely nice way. The center pole in
the roof was used as a. sort of peak and
string-* were extended to the railing in all
directions. On this dozens of lanterns
were suspended, interspersed with flags.
The interior was profusely decorated with
flowers, sweet peas predominating. It was
really a bower of beauty, and all conceded
it the prettiest interior in the fleet.
The ark Cuckoo wag elaborately decor- ;

The old bark California that had been \
lying idly in harbor for years waft turned
into a thing of beauty. Bunting, rings and ■
lanterns were suspended from the masts
and yards, and every rope was orna
mented in some way.
In fact, in every place that a bit of
bright color could be placed to improve
things it was, and the people were untir
ing in their efforts to make the lagoon a
.tiling of beauty.
By sundown every ark, yacht, launch,
rowboat and residence was covered with

also a laree number of launches from
Sausalito, the names of winch could not
be learned. It is not known exactly, but
it is approximated that over 100 vessels of
different kinds took part in the parade.
rtin launches started 'mid the booming
of cannon, the flash of lights and the
sound of music. Twice they went in a
circle out of the lagoon around the large
steamer San Rafael, which was anchored
In the bay.
The sight was a beautiful one, full of
life hnd light.
After the parade the launches dispersed
and took the guests back to the ark«.
f The fireworks were discharged at 9:30
o clock from a barge anchored in the mid
dle of the lagoon. There were only a few
set pieces, but rockets and Roman candles
seemed inexhaustible. The fiery trails
crossed the sky like meteors, and for a
moment '.brew a soft colored light over the
scene. Many of the rock«t3 were partic
ularly fine. Alessr*. John, Hammer and
Ileney composed the fireworks committee.
Following are a few of the pieces:

fireworks, floating lights, exhibition rock

bombshells and every other conceit of the
For over an hour the air was filled with
streamers of colored light.
At 10 o'clock the moon rose over Angel
Island and threw a soft light over the
scene that brought into view many of the
details of boats and ai i:s.
After the parade, illumination and fire
works the different "arkites" entertained
their guests, and the festivities of the
evening in one sense had just commenced.
Many of the arks spread elaborate sup
pers for their guests, and the' clink of
classes mingled with the sound of laugh
It w<i« a most successful "night in
Venice," and the happiness did not cease
until loug after midnight.
Nearly 3000 invitations had been sent
out, and as many morn people viewed the
parade from boats, so it is safe to say that

FLIGHT OF A CAR.
A Wild Dash Down Three
BRAKE CHAINS SNAPPED.
Driver Deasy Avoided Danger by
SIX LADIES SEVERELY SHAKEN.
Fearful Race of a Horsecar From
Stockton Street Down the Wash
The brake-chains snapped and a horse
car dashed down Washington -street
through the henrt of Chinatown last even
ins, with two horses on a mad gallop in.
fmat and six terrified ladies inside.
People on the street stood in speechless
amazement expecting to sac the horses
fall and a fearful accident, but the unex
pected h.'iDened. The driver's coolness
alcne saved a disaster, and the car rushed
from one company's trucks to another's
and finally stopped on level ground amid a
highly excited crowd.
When turning his car from Stockton
street into Washington street Driver J.
Deasy put en the forward brake. The
strain was two much for the worn chain,
which broke with a loud snap. Almost
instantly the car started on its wild down
ward course with a velocity that startled
the passengers. Conductor Thomas 110-
Courtney tugced at his brake, hoping to
stop the runaway, only to rind the last
chance for safety rudely snatched from
, The rear brake went like the other one,
ami then, without anything to check, the
car sped down grade. All the driver could
do was to shout at pedestrians to keep off
the track. His vigorous efforts in this di
rection were hardly necessary, for there
was a sudden scattering of Chinese, who
became panic-stricken at the noise and
spectacle of a streetcar passing as a flash.
The speed was rapidly accelerated before
the Dupont-street crossing was reached,
but there a sudden check was noticed.
This was only temporary, however, for
*.he lunaway took the second grade to
Xearnv street quite as fast.
The driver pulled out the pin which con
nects the car and olnjiletree?. He next en
deavored to pull his team to one * do out
of tne way, but It was nil they could do to
cave their heels and keep ahead. At the
Kearny-street corner one horse slipped.
The dashboard struck his flanks, throwing
him over against his traveling companion
and luckily turning both aside.
A third grade was taken by the car with
Increased velocity, though with no danger
of colliding with th« two horses, which
were left behind. The driver wondered
what would happen at the turn into Mont
gomery street, as it would not to possible
to follow the rails around a corner at such
high speed. He was very agreeably sur
prised to see the car rush across the cob
bles and preserving its direct course down
Washington street. At this point one of
those unaccountable vagaries of runaway
streetcars took place, this one forsaking
the beaten track for the Presidio and Fer
ries Company's rails.
The cobbles decided the runaway's
destiny, so that after going half a block
farther it stopped with the best grace
Im pitiable, a little the worse for its ex
perience, hayinjjone wheel, three windows,
thn lamps and two wheel-boxes broken.
The passengers were severely shaken up
and badly frightened, but escaped without
serious injury. They left the car in a
hurry, and were soon , lost in the crowd.
Among thsru was Mrs. Anna Richter of
1803 ockton street, who had a similar ex
perience previously. She was Uih leas;
frightened of the lot, but admitted that the
experience was one to be long remem

It Is peihaps even mote crooked Mian towing,
which Is saying a great deal. No matter who

when two wrestlers could pacK a house in St.

In other big cities, whereas to-day taKe the best
wrestlers in the world and pit them against
each other and they could not draw a corporal's

could contest fairly. The task Is such a big one
that it is worth tin' labor."

Carl yon Tiedemuun, who Is awaiting hi* trial
on the charge of being concerned hi Hie forjrery

It May Possibly Cost Him
But the Southern Pacific Agent Says
He Doesn't Care — Canadian
Pacific Now Open.
John J. Haley, trie pentleman who has made
the recent sessions of the Board of Supervisors
of an exceedingly lively nature, does not seem
to be worried about Ins rumoied removal from
Ills present position with the Southern Pacific
Company. la fact Mr. Hairy says lit doesn't
caie whether lie Is removed or not. although
nothing has come to bis attention which would
lead him to believe that the officials above him
contemplate any such step.

"The devil barred, but everybody else is

It is this striking legend, printed on the j

army encampment, that uives the visitor j
the first insight into the rules and regula

Glanced at superficially the pretty,
peaceful camp looks cue of the last pltesa

likely to need a broad hint to stay away.
But the army officers say ?oine of the
emissaries of the evil one do occasionally
stay there, and, what is better, they some
times tet converted. Indeed the genial
Salvationists can cite quite a number of

times" going on. About 100 Itttle white
tents are pitched hern and there among the
rustling cum trees, and each tent is inter
esting, fur it would be hard to hnd a more
"ddlv assorted set of people on the face of
the earth than the campers at Trestle Glen,
and v.'t they all dwell together in a har
mony that a socialist would revel In.
"If one has a thing tiie mlier lias it ; for
wo am all willinc to lend." said Mrs. Cup
tain MrF-e, sliowlDg her own dainty littlw
ten', made gay with Chinese- lanterns and
some serviceable knick-knack-..
"What was it you wanted she added
to a neighbor who bad just ingeniously
manufactured a table by naiiinc some
boards on an empty flour-barrel. "A
table-cover? 1 think this will about do,
even if it is a little small," and Mr?. Mc-
Fee brought out a crisp white table-cover
that made the jude table look quite an
ornamtnt to the camp. Then she added,
"Yes, there is a real pood comradeship
among all the people here."
Another tent not far from Captain Me- I
Fee's is that of Staff Captain Blanche Cox j

pretty little hallelujah lass from Lan
Every ono has heard of Captain Cox, an
English irirl brought up in every luxury,
who abandoned her wealth and social po
sition to preach and teach with the army
and who is at present the life aDd soul of
the Trestle Glen Camp. ;
There is no luxury about the captain's
tent though. No Spartan soldier' could
have a plainer one. A camp bed, a wash
stand and a rude table comprise the turni
ture. A tiny hand mirror and a couple of
valises are tucked away in one corner,
while on the table lies a traveling desk
and a Bible stamped with the words "The
Cross Is Not Greater than His Grace."
Captain Cox and her lieutenant have
Jnst one luxury in their tent, and that is
flowers. Huge bouquets thrmt into com
mon piteben or jars stand in every avail
able place, and make the air heavy with
"They think tho world of them, these
English girls. You see flowers are not 80

of Captain Cox's tent, and showed where
sirne enthusiastic friend of the two girls
lind pinned up thf> coat of arms of their
c iwitiy. Id imitation of feudal times,
when Knights and barons emblazoned their
crests on their tents.
Just opposite, the tent of Major Keppel
was resplendent with the stars and stripes
and the American ea^lo.
The in a r is said to put on more style
than any one in camp, not only because of
ttie device which proudly adorns his tent,
but also because he has a bedstead whicti
folds up with every modern convenience,
and during the daytime beguiles the be
holder into- the belief that It is a bureau.
This bit of furniture is considered to give
tone and style to the whole camp.
Another interesting tent is (he one
where a sort of fancy fair is held for the
benefit of the Rescue home at Beulah.
Nearly all the dainty and useful things on
sale are the work: of the in mutes of the
home, and they show plainly the able
manner in which the girls are taught to
lead useful lives.
"lied wood Camp" is a portion of the
encampment that commands treat respect
and Is considered by the army as an out
ward anil visible proof of the work accom
plished by the cnarioteers.
The people in Redwood Camp knew
nothing about the army till a few weeks
ago. when the charioteers visited Redwood
City and so interested some of its inhab
itants thai they determined to go to
Trestle Glen and learn more about the
Salvationists. v *:/
They are very well-to-do people, and
have every convenience tn their camp, in
cluding a most commodious kitchen, where
the proverbial cat could be swung with
ease, in M>ite of the fact that it is hollowed
out entirely from the mot of a troo. In
fact the redwood kitchen is considered the
crowning wo der of the camp, as far as
material wonders go.
Some of the other people not belonging to
thw army, who are sojourning at Tres'le
Glen, have been induced to come from Lake,
Huniboldt and Mendoeino counties by the
efforts of the "outriders," the pic
turesquely attired Salvationists, whose
wide sombrero and high boots give quite
an air of romance to the camp. But these
outrider* have seen hard work up In the
It g^ing-camps of the north, where their
mission is to ride long distauces over
rough trails to preach In 4he scattered
camps among the redwoods, where, in
many cases, there is never any other reli
gious service at all.
» It is not the outward appearance of the
camp thai is considered of so much 1111
; portance by tho Salvation Army, however,
as the amount of inward and spiritual
gmce attained there.
Every morning at 9 o'clock Hie bugle is
heard ringing through the valley. After
sounding the reveille it generally plays
some old Methodist hymn or "Nearer, My
Gmi. to Thee." This is the signal for
meetinp. which is always largely attended.
i On Sunday there is a 7 o'clock "knee
drill" iv addition to the 9 o'clock service.
The other meetings are the same on
Sundays as on week days, namely, at 11
!in the morning, a service at 1 :30 p. m. for
children, a meeting at 5 and an evening
meeting at 7.
All these meetings are conducted by the
best leaders in the army, and are largely
In the evening the choristers, who have
an excellent Dand, are in the habit of golDg
into Oakland and returning to camp, fol
lowed by a larg<« train of music-lovers.
Another means whereby many people
are attracted to Trestle Glen is a series of
stereopticon views which are exhibited in
the open air at the corner of Broadway
and Webster street.
The biggest day at the camp, however,
will he Sunday. July l, when the two tall
est officers in the army will be united in
the bonds of holy matrimony.
The lady will stand up wlthonta bonnet,
and in the presence of Alajor Kepnel and
I staff and between 5000 and 6000 Saivation-
I ists, without counting the general public,
will go courageously through the wedding
service according to army rites.
It is expected that this wedding will be
the most brilliantooe that has yet occurred
; in local Salvation Army circles.

San Francisco Elks Are
Not In It.
THEIR DELEGATE DIDN'T GO.
Appleby Is Against Them All
ITS EFFECT ON THE LOCAL LODGE
No Matter how the Grand Lodge
Acts, the Annual Picnic Will
Soon Be Given.
It does not seem to worry San Francisco
Lodge much that Grand Exalted Ruler
Appleby has read this lodge out of the
order. They look upon his effort as that
of the tail trying to wag the dog, and pre
sage for it just about as much effect. They
generally regard Appleby's attitude as
that of the little boy who insists that If
they don't play his way he won't play
The split in the ranks of the Elks to an
outsider seems over a very trivial matter.
At the last session of the Grand Lodge,
held at Detroit, Mien., the grand trustees
were empowered to name the time and
place of the next meeting. In pursuance
of this authority they held a meeting in
February at which ADDieby was requested
to be present, lor some reason or another
he failed to put in an appearance, and
when the grand trustees announced At
lantic City, X. J., as their choice the grand
exalted ruler made things hum in his rage.
He reared on his hind logs and tossed his
six-ttned horns defiantly in the air. He
swore that the grand trustees did not
know what they were talktne about, and
he nnnounced that the next Grand Lodes
meeting should beheld at Jamestown, N. Y.
The grand trustees protested, but Appleby
was obdurate. He was boss, and he pro
posed to run the whole works.
Upon this the grand trustees issued a
very neat circular, which was of such a
highly inflammable nature that it came
nearly being excluded from the mails. It
fairly "burnt" Appleby to a cinder, yet
ihose who have seen it say the trustees
stuck closely to the law of the order as
their text and left the grand exalted bull
elk not a leg to stand on. They repre
sented to the lodges throughout the country
that they had selected the place of meet
ing in accordance with the authority con
ferred at the Grand Lodge meettug in
Detroit and pointed out that Appleby had
no Alternative but to submit.
The circular waa well received through
out the country and Elks nil over turned
its consents over in theii minds and
chuckled at the way the exalted ruler was
getting it where the willieboy wore his
stock. They chewed the ra— the cud,
rather, and Appleby soon became aware
that if he did not shut off the discussion
of the circular it nrobably would weaken
his cause. He immediately issued an or
der that lodge matters should not be al
lowed to leak and that any Elk who was
so indiscreet as to become a purveyor of
news of the Appleby attitude to the press
would be immediately suspended.
Elts didn't like this sort of thine, but
they obeyed. Not a word has got out for
months, but from the slim attendance at
and the subsequent defection trom the
Appleby session, it waa evident that they
have done a heap of thinking.
One thing the San Francl«co Elks cannot
understand, however, is the fact contained
in the press dispatches that Appleby and
his newiy appointed grand trustees have
read this lodge out of the order. Three or
four weeks a^o, according to the rule, lha
per capita tax was sent to the grand
treasurer, and, as this is the "only proper
return" that could be made to the
officers, they can see no other excuse that
Appleby might conjure up against them.
It is true that the local Elks appointed
a representative to the Grand Lodge ses
sioD, and It is al-to true that he is not in
attendance at Appleby's session. Neither,
however, has n« put In an appearance at
the Atlantic City session. Charles A.
Barnard was the delegate selected, and he
was also instructed to graze in the valley
of Jersey-by-t lie-sea, where the clams
grow and Where the juicy mint julep
tickles the tooth and gurgles merrily along
the three stomachs of the noble Ruminant
in a riot of delight.
Knowledge of these instructions may
have come to the ears of the grand exalted
ruier with his back up and may have
caused his action, but be has not a leg to
stand on in this instance, for the very good
reason that Barnard went not to Atlantic
City by reason of the fact of sudden illness.
It really does noi make much difference,
local Elks say, whether ADPleby has read
them out or not. An appeal always lies
to the committee on laws, and as the anti-
Appleby hera seems to have the great ad
vantage in numbers it is hardly likely that
any stand he may take will be sustained.
Viewing the situation from this distance
prominent Elks do not think, whatever
the outcome of the present squabble may
be, that any serious rupture in the order
will take place, and the ban Frnncisco
lodge has among it members who are tbor
ougnly in touch with the pulse of their
brethren throughout the country. The San
Francisco lodge is the third oldest in the
country. New York and Philadelphia
having organized before it.
Its members are known alt over as jolly
good fellows and as being too fully aware
of the import of the laws of the organiza
tion totrangress them. The squabble will
probably be settled by some action at At
lantic City in • day or two, and Ban Fran
ci<co Elks will probably put salve to the
wounu that Appleby will receive in falling
from his high horse with as much grace as
JNotwithstanrtine the Appleby pronun
ei.tmento, the San Francisco lodge will givn
its grand annual outing July 1 at Elks
Glen, near Novato, in Mann County. It
will b» all the more pleasurable irom th»
fact tiint in its postponement clear skies
and balmy breezes will be assured. A new
dancing pavilion has been erected, a big
restaurant antl a refreshment-booth iv a
magnificent tent, and all arrangements
nanae for morn than the usual gocd time
furnished by Elks all over the land.
