jury. It took the members qtlltc. n while.
to listen to ull the evidence which Mr. Hose-
water had to offer , and In about an hour
they came out Into open session and took
up the trial of Sergeant Snoop , accused by
Chief Seavey of disobeying his special
orders. Itas also concluded to hear the
evidence against Officers Arnold , Ilrady ,
Bower and Clark , who were reported as hav
ing been drinking with the' Thurston UlfleH
on the occasion of their flag presentation on
the night of May 28.
Sergeant Sheep admitted disobeying the
orders of the chief because he thought
It necessary to leave several policemen at
the Coliseum , although the chief had In
structed him to send the officers to their
beats when , the exercises of the cvpnlng
at the Coliseum were over. Ho had been
asked to leave the officers by Captain
Scharff of the Rifles and said to Captain
Mostyn when ho returned to the station at
3 o'clock that the guards were having a
pretty good time out there.
Mr. K. C. Hunt , reporter for The Bee , tes
tified that ho was ut the Coliseum In the
early morning when the disorder Is alleged
to have occurred , and that ho believed all
the officers had been drinking , while Brady
and another whom ho did not know were
drunk. Several of the guards were also In
this condition and some of them told Hunt
that they were having a good time drinking
beer and eating Ice cream. Mr. Hunt said
that Senator Lobuck and Mr. Neazy of the
First National bank had told him that their
families were greatly disturbed lute at night
by shooting and the firing of guns In the
Coliseum.
Leo Forby , corporal In the Rifles , said the
beer was there , but he saw none of the
policemen drinking , but the guards drank
freely. Janitor Van Curan , William Mardls ,
John Reed , William Long , A. C.
Yostln and \V. U. Stockham gave similar
testimony.
The hearing will be resumed at 4 o'clock

Alrotlii ) ; Yostorduy Afloiiioon.
The Woman's Christian association held
Its last monthly meeting for the summer
yesterday afternoon at the Commercial club
rooms ,
The treasurer read the monthly report.
The receipts aggregated $710.20 and the ex
penditures $451.74 , leaving n balance of
$2C4.4C. This Is exclusive ot the receipts
from the concert by Blind Tom. This con
cert netted $50.75 , and It was decided to use
this sum to furnish the Young Women's
home.
The committee for the Young Women's
homo reported that $212.10 had been the re
ceipts for the month , leaving a balance of
$55 over the expenditures , against a deficit
last month. The homo Is still $90 behind.
The report showed a decrease In the num
ber of lodgers , but this was caused by cir
cumstances beyond the control of the com
mittee. Some of the girls left town and
others left to find better rooms. The com
mittee considered this no reflection on the
home , as Itx purpose Is to furnish cheap
boarding and lodging for girls whoso means
do not permit them to get better places.
The committee on tlio lodging house
handed In a report which showed that the
lieu"1 * was In a flourishing condition. The
matron visits the depots at train time to
meet any girls or women who are strangers
In the city and who need assistance am ] ad
vice. Much good ttork has been done dur
ing the past month. Eighty-six lodgers have
been received , and twenty-one applications
for work , twelve of which have been sup
plied. A large number of donations ha\e
been received in cash , furniture and supplies.
The matron will wear a uniform next month.
The committee on the Burt .street home
reported that the home shelters at present'
eight old ladles , all of whom are In good
health. Quite an amount of provisions and
furniture had been received during the
month. The receipts in cash were $37.50 ,
with a balance of $4.31. Mrs. Joseph Mlllard
had been especially active In donating and
t > ho was voted the thanks of the association.
Miss Street offered the use of a building
opposite the Hickory school for an Industrial
educational school. This Is In the midst of
the Bohemian and German settlement. She
suggested that the charitable nature of the
school be masked and that a .nominal sum
be charged per lesson , 3 or 5 cents. She
thought It would be advisable to start \\lth
sewing only as an experiment , and If It
should bo successful other brunches could be
started. The following committee was ap
pointed to Investigate : Mrs. Crelsli , Mrs.
Tracy and Mrs. Haner.
Mrs. Tllden then brought before the meet
ing a new scheme to swell the treasury of
the association. It Is proposed to hold at
the Charles Street ball park a "Fairies'
Carnival" on Juno 19 , 20 and 21 In conjunc
tion with the Young Women's Christian as
sociation. One thousand children from 5 to
1C years of age will take part. Committees
were appointed to push the. scheme. Twelve
ladles will bo In charge of the children dur
ing the performance. Lemonade will be
ser\ed during the play.
A' ' vote of thanks wna given to the trustees
and young ladles of the Flrjst Congregational
church for the rooms and services during the
Blind Tom concert.

rains have ruined the dried grass. Wool is
low , meat Is cheap , and fruit Is a drug In
the market. Fruit raising has been over
done In California. . "
"How about beet sugar ? " was asked.
"That has been Increased , and the beets
nro looking splendidly. California is the
home of the beet. The winters are warm
and the sugar manufacturer has no trouble
from frost. In fact , ho has the whole fall
and winter to gather the beets and manufac
ture the sugar. "
"Speaking of free silver , " said he , "I have
not found a bank president In Arizona , New
Mexico , California or Colorado who Is for
free silver. I find editors at Boise City and
Helena who are for free coinage , but no
thoughtful bankers. I found free coinage In
Mexico that is , I found silver with no gold
under It , but the Mexican dollar was worth
49 cents. Mexico , like China and India , has
lost half Its wealth. "
"Do prices change In China and India I
with the price of silver ? "
"No ; strange to say , silks In China \\hlch
cost a Mexican dollar n yard live years ago
can now bo bought for the same piece of
silver worth 48 cents. The Indian and
Chinaman Is the loser by free coinage. This
Is why Tom Reed would put an extra tariff
on these very cheap manufactured goods
made In the Orient. Their low wages have
dropped one-half , and their phenomenally
low wages begin to pull down our wngeh.
This is why Reed would put a discriminat
ing tariff against 1,200.000,000 halt civilian !
Africans , Indians , and Chinamen , whoso
silver Is worth one-half as much as ours ,
and whose wages have gone down u halt. "
"Ho\v Is California politically ? "
"It Is solid against Cleveland , and sp are
Arizona , New Mexico , Idaho , Nevada and
Wyoming. The other night In San Fran
cisco theater they threw pictures tiqm a
magic lantern onto the skirt dancer. When
Cleveland's face appeared It was hissed all
over the theater , while Harrison's face was
cheered. McKlnley's face tot the people
crazy , and amid a bedlam of joy , they called
It back again. " '

There is always a great fascination
about curly birch cabinet work in the
bed rooms of a house. It is so light und
exquisite in its color tone , so quiet and
restful in its general effect , that it is al
ways a favorite wood.
But it , is expensive. Our price on this
