Had Aladdin of old been blessed with

lamps instead of one, or even Cinderella,
backed by more than her natural allow
ance of fairy godmothers, been called upon j
to conjure out of the realms of dreamland j
a brighter or more gorgeous spectacle than
that presented at the Mechanics' Pavilion
last evening, they would have failed be- j
yond the peradventure of a doubt.
For many weeks past the prominent citi- '
zens of the local French colony have been i
busily engaged in arranging a carnival, i
kermesse and series of grand concerts, the
proceeds of which were to be devoted to
the newly erected French hospital, or Mai
son de Sante Fimncaise, as it is more prop
erly called. For many years this institu
tion has been among the foremost of its
kind in the city, and when the proposition
to raise funds for its benefit was first hinted
at the French population, almost in a
body, expressed its willingness to work
heart and hand for the success of the pro
ject. That they have labored assiduously
and succeeded so far as the preliminary
efforts are concerned was illustrated be
yond doubt at the Pavilion last evening.
The scene, upon entering the vast struc
ture, was of such a character as to fairly
hold the spectator spell-bund for the
moment, and had he not a few minutes
prior cheerfully contributed an admission
fee at the box-office he might well be ex
cused for rubbing his eyes and inquiring
whether the scene before him was one of
dream fancy or the handiwork of fellow
mortals. The glare of the noonday sun is
a difficult matter to rival and the rays of
the pale moon are hard to equal, but with
the aid of hundreds of mellow incandes
centfl and pale arcs tne managers of this
charitable enterprise succeeded in illumi
nating the interior in a manner never be
fore attempted. Myriads of flags, endless
festoons of fragrant evergreens, innumer
able streamers and thousands of yards of
vari-colored bunting all contributed
toward the complete transformation of the
usually cold and unviting aspect of the
building. From the center of the arched
roof, agd draped in such a manner as to
form a canopy, huge streamers were sus
pended in semicircular fashion, and on all
sides of these were hung the flags of all
nations. The effect was striking, and a
glance overhead was rewarded by a glimpse
of artistic decorating instead of white
washed rafters and rusty gaspipes.
When at the hour of 8 o'clock Leader
Alfred Roncovieri, baton in hand, faced
his American concert band of 100 pieces an
immense throng of pleasure-seekers were
in attendance. The lower floor was
crowded with promenaders, who divided
their attention profitably between the i
booths, the pretty damsels and the music, j
Speaking of the latter attraction, it must j
be said that the musical organization afore- !
mentioned really distinguished itself on this j
its first appearance. One hundred trained
and neatly uniformed musicians seated i

upon one platform affords a treat which is
rarely offered nowadays. It is said that
the lamented Gilmour "succeeded in gath
ering a like number of instrumentalists
together at one time under his magical
baton, but death prevented his touring the
country with this mammoth band.

sounded* from the southwest wing of the
building, and the glittering cavalcade at

on its march around the hall.
The lights were lowered, and col
ored calcium effects contributed toward
making a picture which will long be re
membered by those who had the pleasure
of witnessing it. A squad of sxrotesque
policemen formed the vanguard' and was
followed by the giant and uHiputian drum
majors, impersonated by an exceptionally
tall colored man and one of the smallest
of small boys in existence. Then came the
American band, playing one of Souza's in
spiring marches. The apoearance of his
Majesty H. 8. Martin I was hailed with
shouts and cheers. The obese and jolly
monarch of the North Beach was comiurt
ably seated in a gorgeous chariot, drawn
by imps and surrounded by enough clowns,
monkeys, boars and nondescripts to stock
a modern circus.
Like a series of living pictures followed,
the beautiful queen, impersonated by Miss
May Masson, who looked the very ideal of
queenly grace; the goddess of mubic, Miss
Alice Decourtieux, and tUe amusing allegor
ical floats. The first, entitled, "The French
Culinary Art." was drawn by six bull
frogs and represented a duel between chefs
over their culinary talents. A squadron of
perambulating victuals, including beets,
hams and sluifed fowl, served as an escort.
The next was named "The Medical Fra
ternity," and depicted the worthy Dr.

VREATHES HIS LAST

HIS ACTIVE PART IN LIFE.
A Noted L<*vyer, Statesman,
Soldier and Gallant
A telegram conveyed the intelligence
that Colonel Harry I. Thornton, the well
known attorney of San Francisco and a
pioneer of this State, died at the Grand
Central Hotel in Fresno at 8:30 o'clock
It was a matter of familiar knowledge to
the friends of the colonel that his health
had been failing for years, but the end
came comparatively suddenly. Bright's
disease was but one or the maladies from
which he suffered, but on Saturday an
acute congestion of the lungs developed
itself, and Dr. Maupin. his local medical
attendant, advised the relatives that the
patient was in a very serious condition.
Dr. Parsons of this city wont down on a
special train, but could only confirm the
physician's worst fears. City Attorney
Creswell and the sisters and sisters-in-law
of Colonel Thorntoa were present at the
death. Mr. Creswell is a nephew of the
The remains will be brought to this city
on the 3 o'clock train to-day.
At noon yesterday Colonel Thornton re
gained consciousness and dictated letters
to his friends, saying that he was dying
and bidding them good- by.
At 8:20 p. m. he again became uncon
scious, and ten minutes later breathed his
At the outbreak of the Civil War the Leg
islature was in session, and young Thorn
ton seized the occasion to make a most sen
sational speech on the floor of the house.
His subject was the right of secession, and
in it he upheld the cause of the South. A
heated discussion followed, but Thornton
held his groand. At the end he resigned
I his seat, packed up his belongings and
j started for the seat of war. He at once
enlisted under the banner of the Confed
eracy, and as major of the Seventh and
lieutenant-colonel of the Fifty-eighth
regiments saw a great deal of active serv
ice. He was a member of General A. S.
Johnston's staff at the battle of Shiloh and
was wounded in the battle of Chickamauga
and also in that of Resaca. At Franklin,
: Teftn., he was thanked in general orders
| for his distinguished services.
This fight, in which Colonel Thornton
j displayed such conspicuous gallantry, took
place on the river Harpeth. The Federal
i troops were entrenched on one side of the
river and the Confederates on the other.
Colonel Thornton was ordered to effect a
landing on the Federal side. Seven times
he led his men to the charge and seven
times were they repulsed. The Harpeth
was red with the blood of the Fifty-eighth,
and scores of them lay dead on either
bank. As they were preparing for another
charge an order came which carried the
regiment to another part of the battle
In August, 18G8, Colonel Thornton was
married to his cousin, Katherine Marshall
Tnornton, the daughter of James Innes
Thornton of Greene County, Alabama.
Two children were born to them, but both
died in childhood.
Colonel Thornton could not keep away
from the West and in the '70's he was again
practicing law in Nevada. In 1880 he as
sociated himself with John Garber and
Thomas B. Bishop. The firm was con
sidered one of the strongest in the State
and its law practice was enormous. It was
engaged as counsel in some of the most
important mining cases ever tried on the
Pacific Coast. Notably there was the case
of Hermes vs. The Raymond and Ely Gold
Mining Companies and also that of the
Eureka Consolidated Gold Mining Com
pany vs. The Richmond Consolidated Gold
Mining Company. Colonel Thornton was
the senior counsel in these trials and the
work entailed upon him was enormous.
In 1884 his health gave way and he was
compelled to give up the practice of law.
He made a trip to Europe and sought relief
at the various health resorts. It was too
late, however. His constitution had been
too much undermined, and the recuper
ative power was not there. He returned to
California, and as it was absolutely neces
sary that he should be constantly in the
open air, he took charge of the Fresno
Canal and Irrigation Company, which
position he held up to the date of his
death. The company is nearly all owned
by English and Scotch capitalists, and it
will be some time before they will get a
man with the ability of the late colonel to
Colonel Thornton left three sisters, all of
whom reside in Ran Francisco. They are
Margaret Thornton Fall, whose husband
died on December 24 last; Sarah Frances
and Bessie Thornton, a widow. Of
his other relatives in this city the
best known are City and County Attor
ney Harry T. Creswell and Cnttenden
Thornton, the well-known attorney. Both
are sons of the late colonel's sisters.
The colonel came of a distinguished
Southern family. He was a nephew of
John J. Crittend'en of Kentucky. The lat
ter served four terms in the United States
Senate, and was a member of both Presi
dent Taylor and President Fillmore's Cab
inet. Like all the Southern gentlemen
Colonel Thornton dearly loved a horse.
He owned several racehorses at various
times and at his breeding establishment is
Sobrante, the futlier of Castro, owned by
Charley Trevathan. Last year he was fre
quently seen on the racetrack, but this sea
son he has only been out once or twice dur
ing the winter. He was a warm personal
friend of most of the leading men in the
State, and his loss will be mourned by a
wide circle of friends.
A TIEE AT SAN QUENTIN.
It Aroused the Prison Officials at Eleven
O'clock at Night.
The residents of San Quentin — that is,
those who are not living there for expiatory
purposes— have, for over two years, re
tired at night feeling somewhat secure in
the consciousness that their slumbers would
be undisturbed until the ordinary time for
a peaceable citizen to arise. For that
length of time, also, since Joe Marshall, in
an attempt to escape, was shot and killed,
the discipline at the big prison has been
But last Monday night at 11 o'clock the
village was turned upside down. Guards
who were not on duty rolled out of bed and
tumbled into their boots and trousers in a
way that would make a San Francisco lire
man turn green with envy.
The alarm bell rang — a bell that is never
used except in the event of an attempted
escape of prisoners or a lire, and there was
Ada Werner, who shot her husband in
his bed in a tit of jealousy some time ago
in this city, is serving a life sentence, and
is in the habit of reading in order to com
pose herself to sleep. Her book on this
occasion must have proven uninteresting,
for she sank into a slumber, had a night
mure and knocked the candle over.
The bed clothing became ignited and her
cell became filled with smoke. The occu
pants of the near-by cells, Mrs. Shattuck
and May Martin, became alarmed at the
odor and shrieked for help. Matron Keyes
arrived promptly on the scene and some
one rang the bell.
Sergeant E. V. Ellis, who is in charge of
the early night-watch, with his assistant,
John T. Leonard, rushed to the women's
ward and seeing the smoke appearing in
dense quantities did not wait to rush down
to the office for the keys of the cells but
hammered away and finally succeeded, in
forring the door of Mrs. Werner's abode.
The prisoner, unless she had been liber
ated in a few minutes, would have been
