HIS LABOR DONE. Martin Heller Has Gone to Mis Rest AFTER A WELL-SPENT LIFE. He Was a Successful Man and a Philanthropist. SKETCH OF HIS USEFUL LIFE. Came to California in Early Days and Made a Fortune— His Work in .San Francisco. Martin Seller, founder and member of the firm of M. Belief & Sons, died at -30 o'clock yesterday afternoon at the resi dence of his son-in-law, Juda Newman, southwest corner of Pacific avenue and Fillmore sleet, aged 7,1 years. Mr. Heller had been ill and confined to his room and bed for a Booth and bad undergone several difficult surcioai opera tions for internal troubles. Seveial days ago it became evident that his file was drawing t> its close and the aged sufferer was prepared for the great change. Hi* benevolent-looking face and familiar limine will be missed by many, young a"d ill. Most of the prominent business me", in this city were his personal friends, socially and in mailers of business. Martin Heller was born in Bavaria, where be was educated and received his first training in the dry-goods butane*, which he followed through th* rernnitider of hie life. He came to tlie United States in 1844 and began his career as a pedd'er. making New Jersey his first fir] I 0 labor. From the modest beginning of ■ peddler he opened a store, but soon t-r went to Montgomery, Ala., where he engaged ia his favorite pursuit for some years. In 1858 he anil one of his three brothers came to the Pacific Coast and very soon opened a dry-goods establishment in San Francisco under the firm name of Heller & Brothers. Their first store was located on California street and a fairly profitable business was carried on. But the shifting of the business center of the city necessi tated a removal and th" store was estab lished on Sacramento street, where it re mained until after runes bad been made in the rush of wartime prices. In 1887 the firm removed t<> the present location of Heller A Sons. 112 Sansome street. The business of the firm steadily grew and spread itself, under careful management, to all parts of the Pacific Coast. It has prospered ever since. The firm of Heller & Bros, erected many houses in this ci y for business and resi dence purposes and thus became instru mental in the substantial building of the metropolis. The deceased was for eighteen years and up to the time of bis death president of the congregation of the Temple Emanu- El and was highly esteemed, not or.lv among his coreligionists but among the people of all classes, faiths and creeds. Being naturally kind-hearted and most tolerant in bis views, he always looked for the same broad spirit of tolerance in others. He was a philanthropist in fact as well as in name who devoted most of his time during tbe latter years of his life to works of charity. He took an active part in the management of the or phan asylum and the Old Ladies' Home and gave liberally to both of those Institu tions. Ha was chiefly instrumental in building up the Home of Peace Cemetery near this city, one of the most rjpautiitil burial grounds in the United States. He was a prominent Odd Fellow, and was treasurer of the Grand Lodge of California for a number of years. He also served five vsars as president of the Odd Fellows' Savings Bank. Mr. Heller was married in 1850 to Miss Babette Heller of New York, who became the mother of six children— three sons and three daughters— all residents of this city. Mrs. Heller di-d very suddenly in 1889. at which time they resided at the Lick ilor.se. Since the death of his wife Mr. Heller made his permanent home with his daughter, Mrs. Juda Newman. The funeral will take place to-morrow accord Ing to the rituals of the Jewish church and the Odd Fellows' order. THE AUDITORIUM. Great Success of Scheel's Popular Concert. Some Overtures That Aroused En thusiasm- and Music. A new departure for San Francisco in the way of popular concerts was inaugu rated last night at the Auditorium. The uniform price all over the bouse was twenty-five cents. People who called for refreshments were presently served with them, and smoking was permitted, while Scheel's orchestra discoursed sweet music. Something of this kind was tried at the Vienna Prater, it is true, but that was so far out of town, and costly to attend, that it was not the same thing as the concert last night, which was given almost in the heart of the city. Apparently San Fran cisco takes kindly to the custom of smok ing and listening to good music in emi nently respectable surroundings. The Auditorium was well filled with ladies and gentlemen, who seemed to enjoy the en tertainment immensely. A number nf so ciety -pie were there, ana the audience was principally composed of par-lea of from two to eight or ten people. At first every one took their pleasure sadly but as the evening wore away they unbent aud chatted gayly between the numbers The orchestra was. if possible, mere brilliant than on Friday night. The vio lins had been slightly augmented, and be tore the end of the week one or two more performers will nron-hiy be added The concert opened with Weber's ".I be i' Over ture," which was dclehtfully played" The ether overtures, which headed eacii of the three divisions of the programme were the "Tannbauser" overture and the overture to "Mignon." Ambroise Thomas' overture, which satisfied both the musicians and the devotees of the Popular, created .uite an uproar. There were cries of "bravo." and some 01 the more ardent admirers stamped as zealously at If their lives depended upon breaking through the floor. Even. Scheel's sensible determina tion to refuse encores was shakeu and he gave Mascasni's popular "intermezzo." A fantasia on Gounod's "Faust" was another operatic selection that deserved all the appluseit received. Most of she best-known themes of the opera, from the pastoral to the soldiers' chorus, were played with a dramatic expression and brilliancy that came second only to hear ing the. work sung by first-class artistes. Concert-master John Maiquardt played a violin solo, "Rondo dcs Ladies," with good executim and express (booth his tone was wanting In fullness. lin was forced to give an encore. A soloist vi ho produced beautiful liquid effects from ber instrument was the harpi>t, who was iii-> Breitschuck last season, but has now be come Mrs. Marquardt. August Badeuiat.'s flute solo with or chestral nccouipaiji'.jf-i) , a "Fantasia pa; -; l m 1.." by Ztbrl, showed him to be an ac j complished flutist. The other numbers on the programme, j including the tavori'e "Beautiful Bine Danube Wal'z." were oil plaveit in a man- j ncr that invited the ovation* they received. !

The People's Party Deal With Ayer. Local Dissension Puts a Stop to Last Night's Fully Prepared Nomi nations. The People's Party Convention met last night in Washington Hafl, B Eddy street, witb A. 1". Kinney in the chair and eighty five members pr-sent. 1 hex - opened with a small fracas on the que- tion of amending the minutes s.i that J. P. Daruerou be pliced among the can d ilat-'s for long term Superior Judge, as four 1 -nir-lerm Judges were required in stead of three, the number already nomi nated, Mr. Dameron befjg the choice for short term. C. W. Perkins got the floor, and called loudly lor a little exhibition of "clean, good, nice politics." as he called it, but frequent risings to a point of older by B. J. Pole and a strong speech by G. I). Gil lespie begging the convention to proceed to the nominations occasioned a failure on the part of the tody to amend the minutes and declare Darnereu a long-term nomi nee. Mrs. S. J. Howard, one of the ten women delegates, wanted to see Dameron get his rights, and called for a standing vote ou the amendment oi the minutes. When the standing vote was taken a 1 Mr*. How. ard's siser delegates poked the men around them in the back and called upon them to "get tip and vote for clean poli tics." Some of the delegates arose as a matter of politeness, but wilh con iJerable reluctance. The whole squabble was suddenly I quashed by the announcement tbat the secretary 'bad a communication from Mr. Dameron announcing his withdrawal. It was read and accepted. A communication from the Merchants' Association asking the -.pin's party t> i l a dge their several candidates for t »■• Board of Supervisors to appropriate suffi cient money for the next n«cal year, be ginning July l, 1893, tor the care of streets to keep them clean, was taken under dis cussion at length and it was finally decided that the nominees he so pledged. The withdrawal of S. F. Weeks, the nominee tor School rector, was accepted. Fol lowing this came a communication that almost precipitated a row. It was one from the Webster Club of the Thirty- District indorsing B. G. Haskell for long term Superior Judge. It was finally de cided to place the same on file. K. Corbett, who presented credentials as a delegate from the Thirty-second Dis trict, was refused a seat on the ground that he was not a good People's party man. At this point in the proceeding* H. S. de Kochemont moved the adoption of a reso tlon ins ructing the convention to rescind the action by which it nominated C. E. Ayer for Assessor, declare said i lace va cant and instruct the executive committee to fill the vacancy. This resolution brought forth a plentiful sut-ply of advice as well as Delegate Nash to his feet. '"I think," be said, "that every man and woman in this convention will agree with me that it is folly to quairel. Is there a man or woman in litis convention who docs not know that we will lose 3000 votes by poli ing man after man down from our tickets?" "No! no! We will not,*' came from all quarters of the ball. "Well, I guess 1 know what I am talking about," fired back Mr. Nash, "and that I am around town as much as any man or woman in this convention, and I want ynu to under stand that we are soring like a lot of old women—" He bad put his foot io It here and was bowled to his seat Several grave charges of securing money under false pre tenses were made against Mr. Ayer by W. J. Greer, aud J. K. Kuckstow called upon bim to resign tor the good of the parly and permit the executive committee to fill the vacancy. In an instant Ayer, agitated and angry, jumped up and declared that be would not resign, and intended to fizbt it out to tbe bitter end. Hisses and calls to "put him out" came from nil quarters of the room. Notwithstanding tbe intermittent declara tions on the part of Ayer to brand every man a criminal who vo:ed to lorn him down the entire convention acted upon the reso lution, and declared the nomination of Mr. Aver lor Assessor null and void. The convention then 'timed without making any nominations, to meet at the call of the president. In regard to the charges against Mr. Ayer he said: "I will resign from the People's party ticket only upon one un derstanding, and it is that any member of it go before a Superior Judge and prove that I am a guilty man or have ever been implicated in a dishonest act in my life. It's all a lie." The vexed question as to whether or not Adoiph Sutro was a candidal for Mayor on tbe People's ticket or not caused Mr. Poie to smile at length. "I assure you he is still at our head in municipal affairs and has not only paid bis campaign assess ment, but offers to pay more when it is required. The whole affair grew out of the fact that on one occasion, when n relative of bis died suddenly, he was un rsfale to attend a meeting where it was important for bim to be. Mr. Sutro told me himself that he expected a lew cam paign lies' of that character." NOW THE POPULISTS. Will Nominate Full State and Muni cipal Tickets. The Populist party headquarters were pretty well tided last night to hear the decision of tha Superior Court iv tbe matter of the injunction proceedings wherein the Feopl-'s party wish to restrain the Populists making use of the latter word iv distinguishing their party from the People's, claiming that it works a great injury to then*. P. A. Dolan of the ex ecutive committee of the Populists stated that no decision bad been reached, but that the Jddse rather leaned to the case of tbe Populists. After a few speeches were made and tbe campaign discussed, the following resolution was adopted : Resolve! , That It Is the sense of this the Populist party that the executive committee be and are hereby Insiruded to at once prepare for and bold a State, legislative and municipal convention to nominate a full ticket, (rom Gov ernor of the State to Coroner of the city and county ot San Francisco, and thai the said committee shall convene not later thau Thurs day, September 27. 1894. The following committee on Ml was appointed: I. G. Leek, Charles D. Mc- Gutra and August Huber. The meeting then adjourned until to-morrow evening. Tired of Life. John Webber, a watchmaker out of em ployment and without a home, jumped into the bay from Lombard-street wharf yesterday morning. He came recently Irom the couutry with a kit of tools, wbicb THE MORNING CALL, SAN FRANCISCO, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER S3, 1 894. he had with him when be jumped in, as he thought their weight would keep bim down. He was rescued by a policeman and sent to the Receiving Hospital in the patrol wagon, where he soon recovered. When he left he remarked that he would see the next time was more successful. TWO DEADBEATS. They Fleece a Number of Store- Keepers. Two swell young men from the East ar rived bete about the beginning of July and after lying 1 nt for a few weeks, while taking stock of the principal stores in the city, they put up at the Westminster, a fasbionahl? boarding-bouse on Batter street. This gave them the necessary "tone" and they began to practice their artfnl ways. : Tney selected as their victims several cf the Pilar pal merchant tailor", jewelers and men's urui -bin * «toreke«Ders. From ilieiu they nurcnased 1 irge hills of goods, represening themselves a« t-vo brothers named Hall a. d having plenty of ready ea^h at their di<po-a'. Within the pust day or two they weut tn Ario-iri iiirs-'liman. jeweler, 113 Antler •tre- 1. and gave an order for $300 worth of Jewelry, to be delivered to them at the W'MtatisT'siw. Before the goods were de livered n friend who introduced them t > ltT-chrnao had become suspicions of them and advised Hirschman to bold on to the goods ti 1 he git the cash. bo they were uot sent. . After leaving Hirsctimin's tney crossed the street and ordered $393 worth of jew elry from Hammersmith & Field. The goods were, foitunately for the firm, not sent. . They were more successful with Wil liam Fdz Maurice, who keeps a gents' fur nishing store at 817 Market street. They bought from him gISG worth of .-ilk under- wear and otber good?, which were deliv ered, but not paid for. About a week ago they went to the store of Charles BUM, merchant tailor, 116 Sixth street, and ordered two suits of clothes and two extra pairs cf pants. Bliss somehow became suspicious, and yesterday morning went to police head quarters ami saw Captain Lees. Tne taller of the two men was to call in the afternoon to h -ye his coat fi t°d. and tbe captain detailed Detectives Gibson and Coffey to shallow them and briug them id. They were taken before Captain Lees and toll him they were brothers and their name was Hail. In the pockets of the taller of the two a roster of Company B, Seventh Regiment, N. Y. N. t..,w found with tue uame of Fvsriiuand <". Rider. COG Montclalr avenue. Forest Hill, N. J.. trade ship chandler. The captain asked him if that was not his real name, arid after some quibbling he admitted that it was. Ihe name of the oilier is S. D. Saloon, an ex-drummer for an Eastern shoe firm. Before registering at the West minster he stopped at 411 Leavenworth street and left without paying his bill. There he was known as Kenneth Gray. After the captain had put them through their lacings they were taken to the de tectives' room and Policeman Frank Riley was ib tailed to watch them while Gibson and Coffey went to search their room at the Westminster. After being seated for a while Rider rose and began pacing the room. Ho gradually ed^ed nearer and nearer the door and suddenly (brew it open and rushed along th*- corridor and into the street like a deer. Riley yelled for helo and gave chase, but Rider had disappeared from view before he got outside the hail. Salmon was locked un in the C;ty Prison. lo their rooms at the Westminster Gib son and Coffey found four light summer suit«, for which an owner is wanted. tie police are keetiug up an active hunt for Rider. HE TRIED A SHOT. A Special Officer's Murderous Act at a Polling-Place. James X»arn, a lineman, living at 17 Polk strett, was shot by Special Officer John Flaherty at the polling-place for the ! Thirty-ninth District, In Micbelsen's sta ble*, 617 Ellis street, yesterday afternoon. Flaherty was acting as one of the in spectors. Kearn entered the polling-place to deposit his ballot, when i lahertv said, "You , get out of here." Then he jumped unon Kearn aud knocked him down. As Kearn rose to his feet 1 liberty pulled out a revolver, placed it against Kearn's vest aud fired. Charles 11. Murray Interfered, when Flaherty pointed the revolver at him anil threatened to put some lead into him also. Then Policeman Dinan took the revolver, -. 32-caliber, from bim ami placed him under arrest. He was taken to the City prison and charged with an assault murder. A number of politicians and friends of Kearn followed him to the hospital, and the latter confirmed Kearn's version of the shooting. FIRE AT SAN JOSE. Fiames Start in a Laundry on the Alameda. The Losses Foot Up a Total of About Thirty Thousand Dollars. Sa~ Jose, Sept. 2.— At2:3oo'cloek this afternoon a fire broke nut in the Red Star laundry on the Alameda, owned by .1. B. Leamau & Son. Before the fire depart ment arrived the whole structure was a mass nf flames. All the engines in the city were put to work on if, but to no avail, for In fifteen minutes the front of the building had caved in. Adjoining this structure was a large two story block owned by Peter Baltz, and as the laundry building caved ia the heat be came so intense that this structure alo caught fire between the roof and the ceil ing, and tbe smoke winch rolled out became so intense that it was with difficulty the firemen were able to keep at their work. Finally tbe windows were broken in and the other three streams of water were played on the flumes. During the whole afternoon the work continued and about 6 o'clock the Amies were extinguished, but not beforo the structure was completely gutted. The upper part of the structure was used as a lodging-bouse and kept by Mrs. O'Neil. Her loss is $500. The insurance had run out.

GOSSIP. itr nu-: or.sizitrEi:. A Wonderful Art Studio. Many people are not aware that there i« in San Francisco one of the most interest ing por'rait studios in the United States. It is the stndio of W. 8. Sotlon at 231 Post street, between Grant avenue and .Stockton street, where are to be seen more portraits ot prominent people than we have hitherto seen eather-d together, chief among which is a life-size full figure oil portrait of the Kiubt Rev. Bishop Nichols of the Eji-cupal Church of California. This deserves special mention from tbe fact of its being so roarveloui-iy lifelike of the reverend gentlemen, and the work so elaborately executed, resenting him in full Episcopal robes, fitting, as it were, in a vestry. The expression of hi' face and the anat omy of bis bands seem too lifelike to be on canvas. Another very noticeable portrait is that of the much beloved Mrs. Sarah B Cooper. Any one who has met her n-c.-gnizes the perfection of the likeness at the first glance. Governor Markham, Mr. Tubbs the Froni-street merchant, and many tubers too numerous to mention, are easily recog nized. But what adds much to the interest of Mr. Sutton's studio is his very rare and varied collection of antiquities, relics and curios from the four quarters of "he globe, which he has been years colieeli* Here are Jo be seen antiquities in bronze, silver, glass and cbinaware, tortoise shell, etc., some of which have once been owned by the royalty of the d ffeient courts of Europe. The crude stone implements found la the graves of long-departed Indian's — the skillful work of the Esquimaux, the in genious productions of the nth Sea Islanders, the handiwork of native Afri can*, and the vanities of our various nines of Indians, are ail well re; resented lv these antique a*t rooms. Mr. Sutton's artistic work certainly de serve* patronage, as it speaks for itself In its elaborate finish in oil, water colors, etc. And as a collect* rof curios, he is worthy of treat praise, a* is plainly demonstrated by the Urge number el visitors who daily throng his studio during is rec.piion hours, from 1 to 5 o'clock P. M. All subject* were shelved yesterday ex cept that of the weather. Hot Democrats and perspiring Republicans combined for once and there was no amendment to the motion that It was "'warm." The crowd that swarmed to the Lnrline baths was a sight in itself, and no less'than 3400 peopl passed the gates. Judges, ministers of the gospel, physicians, merchants, bankers and their friends were there. No theater scene could compare with the kaleidoscopic picture furnished by the baths. B< M and daring divers, strong a* powerful swim mers, timid young beginners and hosts of lookers-on eclipsed anything in the bath inn line that we have ever seen in this city. Spl. sh after splash, mingled with a mur mur of a thousand vjices, caused a busy hum which gladdened the heart of Greer Harrison, and even the anxiety of han dling such an enormous nuuib-r could not remove the smiles which rippled over his face like the briny over the bathers' backs. No one who patronized the baths last night could doubt the efficiency of the machinery employed and the gigantic scale on wtich the oata'nrium Is worked, for when the hour of closing came the water appeared •is fresh as the Pacific Ocean Itself. Reluc tantly the dippers donned their daily clothes and went their way, to "come again." The spectators, too, bad lots of fun, and the ventilation is so admirably adjus ed that the temperature of ihe at mosphere is actually cooler than it is out side the building. Tbe Lurline baths are deservedly popular and it shows the good se nse of our society leaders that they have unanimously maae tuem a fashionable re sort. Henry Mi. of Miller & Lux, tbe cattle kings, bas emphatically said to a reporter, "Ho, we do not object to refrig erated meats." This meat question is of literally vital importance to householders. There is such a tendency on the part of the general public to read one uew«piper story or a pamphlet, and with th super ficial knowledge jump at erroneous conclu sions. If people will ouly tike a commo n sense view of the matter they will probably discriminate between cranks on eitber side and suite a happy medium in tbe recent controversy. On the one band the butchers, or a portion of them, are en deavoring to boycott the Baden company and its produce; on the other baud tbe company is supplying cheaper meat than was the rule brtoie tbeir incorporation. It appears to me that the big company comes out exceedingly will In the argu ments pro aud con, although as a rule 1 am not in favor of too much power getting into tne bands of the few. The new sys tem which they have has been thoroughly examined and tested by the best available experts and the excellent quality of their meat is admitted. Where the trouble comes in is that the Baden company Is celling too cheaply to suit its competitors, aDd, as I have stated before, the corpora tion, will temporarily have to suffer until it can educate tbe heads of families to de mand Baden meats. "Union it strength," and tt stands to reason that a company doing business on gigantic scale of that under mention can afford to supply goods at a less rule- than minor concerns. In these hard lines, when people look twice at a nickel before parting with it, the cheaper meat will certainly command the market, so long as inquirers know that it is good. More Important than all these side is sues is tie interest of the State of Cali fornia. If it is possible, and there can hardly be any doubt of I', that California is worthy of her reputation, it seems ab surd that we should keep on importing hams and other kinds of meats. The stock-raisers or this State cannot be put down as being devoid of ordinary intelli gence. When they find that a company Is paying higher prices for cattle than the market really justifies they will accept -neb offers as an encouragement to their enterprise. This State <an produce cm men', and at a reasonable price. Why should w» feed Eastern bouses by allow ing them to step in, or why should we keep prices so high that we court competi tion from places outside* lt seems ansuru that when millions of dollars are laid out iv establishing an extensive plant in our State petty bickerings should be al lowed to act like the proverbial cold water ii n the scheme. So long as the Baden Com oanv keep* faith with the public by turning out first-class meal of the finest quality the public will demand what the cost is. Wuen it is found that they can buy the best products at a cheaper rat* than la charged for the other meats the custom must follow. The lac? that an immense sum of money has been laid out in California would tempt me to demand from my butcher Baden meats, and un fortunately, 1 have no int rest in that company or Its employes.

Binds, Gags Herself and Fires the House. ! Sbe Said All This Was Done by Her Husband, Who Had Deserted Her. Stockton, Sept. 22.— At 2 o'clock this morning a bouse on El Dorado street, near the Mormon Channel, was discovered to be on fire, and wheu the neighbors got there they heard the groans of a woman. Run ning to the rear they found Airs. Mariana Janerro lying ad the porch cf the burning house bound and gagced. She was car ried to a i lice of safety, and then she told of an attack which her husband, Manuel Janerro, bad made upon her. She said he had been out of town about three weeks, but that at 1 o'clock in the morning tie came into the bouse aud with out a word seized her and bound her baud and foot and gagged her. He then dragged ber out of bed by the hair and flourished a knife, as if to cut her throat but instead cut off her hair. Having don.' this her husband threw her upon the floor in the back room and fired the bouse. Intend. to burn her to death, but she managed to crawl to tbe porch. She said she did not know what her husband bad done witb the four month-old child that was in bed with her, but it was concluded tbat he had taken the child and left the town. This supposition was strengthened by the statement of a man who had come in from one of the country roads to see the fire, and who said that he passed a place where be beard a baby crying in a field. He thought i; a strange sound fcrt'iat time in the nib. but did nn t stop as the fire was ahead. This morning the baby was found in the woodshed in the resr. This lias led many persons to conclude tbat the woman may have bound and gagged herself after cutting off her hair and SdltiiiK fire to the house. Mrs. Janerro caused the arrest of b«?r husband for wife-beating son weeks ago, and he then said that he had not beaten tar, and that she was crazy. He has not been seen in this city by any one. The of ficers believe the husband of the woman did not commit the crime. Tbey found a woman who says Mrs. Janerr.) came to her bouse yesterday, and asked if the officers would bring tier husband back if her house was set afire. She seemed grief stricken at the absence of her husband, who has fled, fearing arrest for beating her, and wanted him returned to her. The officers say there were no knots in the rope with which she was bound, and her baby was out In the woodshed, near the bouse. They believe she tied herself, and set the fire to cause the oflieers to bring her hus band back bere, believing him to ba the criminal. Further inquiries in the case lead tbe officers to think that she was again at tacked by her husband, ns she* says. The man and woman who cut off the rope with which she was bound say she could not have tied it. The firemen who went into tbe woodshed during the fire declare the baby was not there, but it was found there later lying on a blanket with a limp near it lt is thought the husband may bave brought the child back, but none of the neighbor* heard It cry. The neighbors say she told them she would soon move, and she expressed a fear that her husband might return and burn her out. Alto gether it is a mysterious case. VENTURA DEMOCRATS.

In the Pageant Will Be Represented All the Epochs Since the First Landing. Sax Diego, Sept. 22.— As the time ap proaches for the opening of the Cabrillo celebration the magnitude of the under taking and the energy with which prepara tions have been going forward are made manifest. Already the city presents a festal appearance, many of tbe street decorations are in i lace and the huge pavilion in which the literary exercises are to occur Is lined witb bunting ia readi ness for the great f. t*. The celebration opens on Thursday, the 27'h inst., wth a military parade. Tbe entire Seventh and Ninth regiments, X. G. C, will appear in the procession, which will include the naval reserves of this city and Los Angeles, the San Diego Cadets and Company C of the Eighteenth Infantry, U. S. A., now stationed at this city. Tne first day will be given over largely to aquatic sports, the rowing and swim ming contests coming in the forenoon and the sailing regatta at 2 p. M A wheel men's road race around the bay to Cor onado, over a course eighteen and a half mil'-s m length, will commence the day's festivities, and trotting and running races at the Swe- twater Track are set for trie afternoon. Concerts by the Golden G-ite Park band of San Francisco are arranged for afternoon and evening, and at 8:30 P. M Cabrillo will ariive in his caravels, the San Salvador ami Victoria. On his arrival in the harbor there will be a gor geous display of fireworks along the entire bay front, for which an elaborate pro gramme is announced. The landing of Cabrlllo is to occur Fri day .morning, when the prtncl.al street parade will occur. This will be the finest pageant ever seen in this section of the <• it-T, if not in the West Besides the floats being prepared by the tradesmen and civic organizations, such as the mag nificent showing by the Knights of Py i ilii-, word has been received that out lying suburbs wiil be on band with repre sentations of their popular attractions. Then the Catiri committee Is itself pre i paring six floats original in design and very expensive In finish, representing the lowing subjects: First, "Primitive San Diego." shown by a naked Indian stand ing, with eyes shaded by his hand and sur rounded with palms and cactus, looking out npon the sea; second, "Cabriilo's Dis covery," in which Cabril-n himself will be represented landing on the shores of San Diego Bay and meeting the Indians; third, "Founding the Missions," showing Junf- Serraaud his brother padres building . the mission buildings; fourth, Indian up rising, representing the destruction of a mission, with fight between Christians and pagan lodiebs;. filth, San Diego in 1894, in which one of the most beautiful of Sau Diego girls will represent tbe county, surrounded with ail its products; sixth, California, a living coat of arms of the State, with a young woman standing, a miner with his pick, and a live bear rep resenting the grizzy. The bear will be furnished by Colonel Boone, who will himself appear in the parade wi'h one of his African lions uncaged. TheKnghts of Pythias will follow their costly float to the number of at least 300, coming from Southeru California tnyn9, many of them in uniform rank. The San D ego lodge of Elks will turn out 75 strong in full regalia. The military division will be composed ot the entire Seventh and Ninth regiments, National Guard, and other organizations. Not much has been said about the visit of tbe Indians to the city, but arrange ments have been made for fifty members of the reservation at £1 Capitan who will stay during the celebration and give samples of tbeir dances celebrating war. harvest, marriage, death songs, burial chants, etc. They will be fantastically draped after the manner of tbe ancients. Director-General Fisher lias great hopes that tbe cruiser Philadelphia will be cm band during the celebration, having tbe assurance that she will be here if it is within the power of the department to send her. It is also possible that the Mexican scboolship Z-ragoza. lately at Guaymas, will be here during the car nival, she being expected to proceed to San Francisco, and the Consul-General there having sent word that she will call here. President Diaz of Mexico will be per sonally represented at the celebration by Goveruor Sanguiuez of Lower California, and as a special courtesy to San Di.*goand the people of California General LuizTor res, the formei Governorof the peninsula, has ordered the magnificent band of the Twenty-fifth Regiment of M-*xicau in fantry to report here for the entire three days' celebration. Nine other bands will be in attendance. Another picturesque feature will be the preseuce of lh© mounted Rurales and Gendemerii Fiscal of Mexico, who have been invited to come up from Tia Juana and the border, where they are in the sad dle constantly ranging for smugglers. They are among the most expert horsemen in the world, and their equipment is strik ing in color and in great contrast to the American cavalry. The literary exercises on Friday include orations by Senator Stephen M. White of Los Angeles and Hon. Walter G. Smith of Honolulu, the projector of the Cabrill • celebration two years ago. Congressman Bowers will also speak. Many State dignitaries have signified their Intention to be present. The even ing will be devoted to the carnival, when the streets will be given over to the ex clusive use of the masked revelers. An illuminated pageant by wheelmen will pre cede the masked ball. The Indian games and prlz* military drills come on Saturday. The celebration will conclude wiih a "Night in Venice" on the bay. This will be the greatest event of the festivities. The entire bay for miles will be a sheet of tire, and will be covered with floatine geysers and beacon lights. The farewell and departure of Cabrillo follows the fireworks display.

Whole System to Become Affected From the Folionoo- Manna Seiner Taken Into the Stom- ach. Catarrh Is a very common disease bu\ never- theless, few understand its nature or the cor- rect method of tieaimenr. If patients will carefully rend this brief lecture from Drs. Cop-land, Winn and Neal they can readily un- derstand how caiarrh, beginning* hack of the soft palate, readily extends up into the ears and eyes, causing ear and eye trouble, frontal neuralgia, etc., and also how it extends dowu the throat into the bronchial tubes and stom- ach. cau«ing chronic bronchitis, dyspepsia, etc. Thousands of people are nightly swallowine: poison and do not know it. With nasal catarrh there Is usually a fullness or pain In front of the head, the nose Is stopped up. mere is fre- quent blowing ot tbe uo«e or hawklnc to dis- lodge Ihe mucus. The mucus frequently drops dowu into the throat and there Is a constant hawking to throw it out. At night th process goes ou ]u«f the game, but quantities of the poh.onous mucus finds Its way through the oesophagus to the stomach. This mucus rests long enouch In the ihroat to mix with the (oni air returning from the lungs, and becomes even more villa ldous and deadly than before. In tbls condition it ta swallowed, laden with the germs of decomposition. This (out mucus Is poison, not a quick poison like arsenic, but a poison, nevertheless, which slowly but surely uudermlnes the path-ut's health. It spieads itself out ovei the walls of th« stomach and obstructs the deposit of gas- tric Juice. ft covers the food and prevents the juic -s of the stomach that are secreted from aetliif! upon and dige-tiuir It. Instead of diges- tion there i* decomposition. In other words, the food ferments and dpo.iy* in the stomach, J gases are formed which distend the stomach, causing pain and belching. The blond takes up the poison and the whole system becomes charged wltn the deadly prod nets of decay. Health is impossible under such conditions. The bteath becomes foti*. the ton-rue coated. Large quantities of the foul mucus are of tei, vomited tip In the morning. Headache*, dull, heavy feeling, hints, osition to act. pains abou' the heart, appetite varying from ravenous to disgust for food.
