16 ST. MARY'S BEAUTIFIED The Paulist Fathers Have Frescoed and Remodeled the Old Edifice. BRILLIANT IN ITS EFFECT. A Grand Sacred Concert Under Fritz Scheel to Be Given In the Church. When the parishioners of |St. Mary's Church on California street enter the old edilice next Sunday they will be agreeably surprised at the spectacle of a magnificent interior, quite brilliant and pleasing in its effect. Where everything was somber as the walls of a venerable cathedral there is brightness in color, beautiful frescoes, ornamental electroliers and oaken wood work. The whole is a very happy combi nation, which makes the church attractive, while having, in a remarkable degree, changed the architectural outlines. And the Paul,>t fathers are justly proud of the improvements they have made. The scaffolding used by the decorators was taken down yesterday and it was then EEV. H. H. WYMAN, O. S. P., EBCTOR OF ST.

VOLUME LXXVII.— NO. 172. MEMORIAL DAY IN THE CITY, STATE AND NATION tt» fT EMORIAL DAY was impres jp\/\l lively celebrated yesterday. Per- I W 11 haps nowhere better than in Cal- JL V lA-ifornia, the Garden State of the Union, can the full significance of the occasion be so ideally carried out. Kowhere else can out-of-door arrangements for the ceremonies be so confidently made; nowhere grow more profusely the flowers which have been beautifully selected as tributes to the heroic dead. And yesterday was an ideal Memorial day for San Francisco. Tnder the blue and silver of the sky's triumphal arch in the golden sheen of the sun's brightest rays, the whole City did honor to the mem ory of those who had died to make its be ing a possibility. Business was generally suspended, and while many sought com mon means o f relaxation and enjoyment, there was a vast number that did not for get the sacred duties of the day. From an early hour the cars passing toward the City cemeteries were crowde...

2 more than thirty years ago, when every morning the daily papers came to us bear ing under black headlines the stories of great deeds, and of great calamities with their long lists of the dead and wounded and missing. We are here to revive the memories and associations of that great struggle for the preservation of our free in stitutions and to show in some slight de gree our appreciation of the efforts and sacrifices made in that behalf. "This day is to us always a day of chastened memories and solemn interest. Ttie ceremony in which we are engaged is at once beautiful and deeply impressive, not so much because it is a tribute of honor and affection as because it is the expres sion of sentiment. This day emphasises the well-known battle-cry, 'Liberty and Union, Now and Forever, One and In- separable.' We have our 22d of February, Fourth of July and our 30th of May. When our children shall ask from time to time as this anniversary rolls round, 'What means this celebration?' what sh...

SOME ENCOURAGING NEWS FROM THE COLIMA YESTERDAY was a second day of | suspense for those who had friends I or kinsfolk on the steamer Colirna that is now lying off Manzanillo, Mexico, under 130 fathoms of water. In the morning a dispatch from Arno, Vogel <fe Co.. agents of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company at Manzanillo, was received here by the company, as fol lows: Manzanillo, May 29. Colima foundered at sea fifty miles from Manzanillo, May 27, at 11 a. m. Have sent read to her assistance. Will send full par ticulars as soon as received. Shortly afterward a telegram came to L. R. Brewer, whose wife and children sailed on the lost steamer. It rapidly spread about town, to the Merchants' Exchange and even into the steamship office, where, in the absence of official advices, it was displayed to the anxious eyes of weary watchers who kept coming and going all day long. A gleam of hope was given by this dis patch. To the stricKen people there was some consolation in the news, for t...

4 NEWS OF THE COAST. Four of the Crew of the Olympia Nearly Suf focated. BAD WRECK OF A TRAIN. Several of the Cars Derailed and a Tramp Killed Near Reno. A SENSATION AT SACRAMENTO. Damaging Admissions Said to Have Been Made by a Suspected Murderer. VALLEJO, Cal., May 30.— The number of the men on the Olympia came near being reduced four on Tuesday. One of the boilermakers and three of the firemen had been instructed to "scale"' one of the auxiliary boilers. The boilermaker was the first to climb inside, and had hardly made his disappear ance when the gas which had generated overpowered him and left him in a help less condition. As no reply to his companion's remarks were made by Lim two of the firemen straggled in after him and were also over come by the deadly gas. Fireman Ander son was the last to follow, but before going in he gave the alarm, as it had become apparent that sometning was decidedly wrong. It was with great difficulty that the men in the boiler were rescued, and non...

Squadrons of the Famous Fighting Seventh Join In Sounding "Taps." CHICAGO, 111., May 30.— The remains of Walter Q. Gresham were laid in the vault in Oakwood Cemetery this after noon, there to remain until the members of his family have decided upon a place of final interment, either in Oakwood; or in some other cemetery in Chicago. General Gresbam loved Chicago and it loved him. Never in the city's history, save the day when the dead body of Abraham Lincoln wa> carried through its streets, has Chi cago testified so fully her grief at the death of any one man. The streets through which the funeral cortege passed and the cemetery were packed with a crowd so dense that they could be packed no closer.

BAY CITY WHEELMEN MEET Good Sport Among the Cyclists at the Central Park Track. A LARGE CROWD ATTENDED. H. F. Terrill. W. F. Foster, G. A. Nis sen and S. D. Vincent Carried Off the Honors of the Day. Bicycle racing is a sport that has come to stay, for fully 5000 spectators occupied the grand stands and bleachers at Central Park yesterday afternoon, and cheered themselves hoarse over the fast racing and exciting finishes. It was a jolly crowd made up in large part of ladies, all of wl-.om had their favorites, and were alter nately elated or downcast as the rider they wire championing won or was unsuccess ful. There was no halfway with them; second or third place did not count. The honors of the day were about evenly divided, the riders from this city, Oakland and San Jose being successful in winning an equal amount of prizes. The track at Central Park has a cement surface, is five laps to the mile, steeply banked on the turns, and is considered fast, but the stiong wind yesterday re...

It took Dr. Johanna Weiss, who has dis honored several aliases besides ncr own name, just one week to fully Hedge one of the most entangled civil and criminal cases that has confronted the attorneys and courts of this City for some time. And, worst of all, after she had set half a dozen or more people by the ears, she inconsider ately went away and left her credit ors and former friends to find their re spective ways, as best they could, out of the maze she had wantonly created. On May 13 last she appeared in the office of Bier & Regensburger, money-brokers, and stated she desired to negotiate a loan of $450 on the furniture and piano at her residence and sanitarium combined, 1323 Geary street. She came with good refer- encesand represented that all the property, which she would mortgage as security for the loa...

A peculiar legal transaction has been brought to light in the case of F. O. Rob bins against A. Haskins. It shows John R. Aitken, ex-Superior Court Judjre of San Diesro County, acting as plaintiff, as at torney for the defendant, and also as at torney for the plaintiff in the same case. This peculiar multiplication of functions he obtained through the assistance of friends, and an investigation will be asked for by Attorney Savaire, who will call the matter to Judge Murphy's attention.

VOLUME LXXTIII.— NO. l. OVERLOADING CAUSED THE COLIMA'S WRECK. COLIMA, Ma., May 31 (via City of Mexico aivi El Paso).— Over-loading caused the loss of the Colima. That is the verdict reached by the Mexican officials who went to the scene of rescue. The steamship car ried a very heavy cargo, and was unable to ride out the storm, which was one of the heaviest which has ever visited this por tion of the coast. The Colima was lost in 18 deg. 38 mm. north latitude, 104 deg. 14 mm. west longi tude during a heavy storm beginning in the southwest and ariving the vessel shore ward, t Captain J. F. Taylor proved a brave man, and did everything to save the ves sel which man could do, but during the height of the storm he was killed by a falling spar. Chief Officer D. E. Griffith and Chief Engineer John P. Ebsen met death in the same way. No one was left to manage the Colima, «nd she went down. The steamship had on board at the time of the wreci 123 passengers and a crew of SO men. There are kn...

2 the ill-fated Colima, and the idea of her going down in the open sea is quite in ac cord with it. Among those who hold to the idea that some accident to her ma chinery has been the cause of the disaster is Mrs. K. P. Schwerin, wife of the manager of the company. The inspectors say, how ever, that the engines were in almost per fect condition when they were inspected recently, but then there may be defects in a piece of machinery which are undiscov erable until they cause a serious accident. The coast where the Colima went down is not a stormy one, particularly at this time of the year, nor is it at all foggy. Pro fessor Davidson of the Geodetic Survey has been ail over it and has studied it, and he says that the only regular storms of par ticular severity are the "whiplashes." They come up from the sonth following the coast and go shrieking up into the Gulf of California. They are not due, however, until the end of August, and he is unwilling to be lieve that it was one of these s...

MR. HILL STARTLED Implications of Senator Sherman Are Not Relished. AS TO THE BAD DOLLARS. The New York Statesman Would Not Circulate Any Greenbacks. SILVER ALSO WORRIES HIM. Possibilities of His Idea of a Ratio, He Says, Have Been Fairly Tested. ALBANY, N. V., May 31.— Senator Hill was asked to-day whether he had read Senator Sherman's speech on the monetary question. "Yes," said the Senator, "I have care fully perused Senator Sherman's speech on silver. If an Ohio Democrat had made the speech there would have been condem nation all along the Republican ranks. The implication startled me that there are, in a prosperous State like Ohio, Republi can voters who wish to degrade our dollar standard, repudiate one-half our public debt and pay their debts in cheaper money than they promised to pay.

4 LEAGUE OF FIREBUGS A Startling Confession Made by a Gotham Incendiary. ADJUSTERS IMPLICATED Claims to Have Been the Tool of a Gang of Insur ance Men. HAVE CAUSED MANY BLAZES. One of His Fellows Said to Have Been Tortured to Death as a Traitor. NEW YORK, K. V., May 51.— Morris Schoenholz, who was arrested recently on a charge of arson, has made a statement to the police which will probably result in the arrest of a dozen or more insurance ad justers. It is alleged that Schoenholz con fessed to firing at least half a dozen houses in this city and Brooklyn by prearrange ment for the insurance men. One fire in Yonkers was all prepared and ready vrhei it was prevented by accident. The fires t iat panned out were all set with benzine on the bladder plan. This plan is as pimply as it is effective. The doomed store or flat is sprinkled with alcohol, and a bladder filled with in flammable stuff is suspended from the ceil ing. Then it is set on fire, and when the flames reach the bladder th...
