In addition to this Mr. Creed has called on the man's wife who is ill this community, and interviewed her. She was asked whcxe he was but shj said that she did not know unless he was off on a drunk. The facL that he wa's here the day before the machine was stolen, and has not ^been seen sinuce, certaiuly do;-s not clear away the suspicion that he is the man. It will not he diflicult for officers to idonllfy him as Mr. Creed has learnCt: th.if ho had bis uajuo tattooed 011 one of his arms. This information will he sent (o tlie pfficers; over the state.

Sept. 2S.—Tlie first division of the Pacific tlet.t. advanco guard of the American navy which 1:: to nssemblo la Pacific coast waters by order of the president, steamed througli the Golden Gate at sunrise this morning. The "Big Four" armor cd cruisers passed the Heads In file formation, led by the fiagship, AVest Virginia, flying at her masthead the two starred flag of the commander of tlie fk'et. Rear Admiral James H. Dayton. Five hundred yards to tho rear came, the Colorado, followed at a like distance by tlie Maryland and tbe Pennsylvania. The arrival of the four big sister ships marked the end of a 3G.00O mile trip, which began at Xcw- port. R. I. last Sepetmber. The squadron was sighted outside, the Heads at' daybreak, steaming at half speed out of a coast fog. By bring ir.g lii.s shipb to anchor off tho c -mr front a few minutes before S o'clocic Admiral Dayton fulfilled his promise by wireless the night b(.fore to "Arrive some time in the early forenoon. Thousands of people anticipating the event, were gathered along the* water front and on the hilltops command- lug a view of the bay. Oblivious of the fas: that they could not be distinguished from tlie decks tboy signaled a welcome, to the huge white and buff .fighting machines by v>avins hats and bandkeroluefs: a£'j as fleecy- puffs of Fmoke rose and drifted from the mouths of tbe six- pounder saluting guns ot the West Virginia, they chr^^red. San Francisco never greeted a home tiound fleet with finer weather. The light fog outside the Heads lifted and blew awa.v as thf. cru'sers emerged into Golden Gate at G o'clock. .\s th? squadron passed in under tho guns of Fort Mason aud Fort Baker, tlie fkigship fired a salute. Passing Goat Island, the West Vir ginia took on a momentary holiday dre >6S by running up successive strings cf brighth colored signal flags, which answered from the naval traiiiina station ahere. Fairyboats crowded to the rails with early moruing commuters, salute'd the squadron by triple blasts of their wiilstles. the admirals ship responding In kind. Oiiposite Xorth Beach the cruisers slowf.d down to allow Chief Quaran- tin? Officer Hobdy to come aboard. In quick succession tho West Virginia. Colorado.

On board the. latter iessel the rails were manned and the banti struck up a lively air as Admiral Swinburne stepjie.i onto the quarterdeck to greet tha commander-in-chief of the fleet. The bii'.i formailiy over, the two admirals shook bands warmly and at once retired for an official conference relatlvu to the departure from this port of the cruisers California. Charleston and ft. Ixiuis for target prlctice at Magdalena Bay. Captain J. B. ]kIilton, commanding the. West Virginia received a score of newspaper men who had been waiting in launches for an hour to come aboard. .\t 1 o'clock this afternoon a joint committee of about loO men prominent in political, business and social life of San Francisco and nearby cities boarded the Wast Virginia to greet acd welcome Admiral Deyton and the officers of the fleet. United States Sfrnator Perkins made a brief formal address of welcome. San Francisco .and California are keenly alive to the importance of the arrival of Admiral Dayton's squadron 8s signalizing the coming mobilization in tbeee waters of the greater part of tbs American na'vy.
