SI 'kit The government transport Pennsylvania arrived in port this afternoon with the Thirty-sixth Infantry aboard, and anchored in the stream off Folsom street. The regi merit, which is a volunteer organization. was in command of Colonel W. R. drove. The men were all glad to get home. They had been fighting for a long time in North ern Luzon and were engaged in some sixty battles. The trip from Manila was without particular incident, except that It was a rather slow one. There are 504 soldiers of the Thirty-sixth aboard, 103 discharged men, fifteen military prisoners, six stowaways, twenty-two first- class and nine steerage passengers. The Pennsylvania like the Indiana carries a Filipino crew. Of the 103 discharged men twenty-eight were from the Sumner, whose places were filled by Filipinos. Two of the Sumner's men who were refused a discharge are among the Pennsylvania's stowaways. Among tile passengers were Mrs. W. R. Grove, Mrs. E. A. Booth and child, Mrs. Huckius, T. M. Ripley, W. C. Ives of the Seaman's Mission at Shanghai, and F. W. Force. Following are the officers of the Thirty-sixth infantry, which will be mustered out immediately: Colonel W. R. Grove. Lieutenant-Colonel W. L. Lutan. Major B. F. Straub, Surgeon; First Lieu-U'liaut IS. X. Jobuson, Captain h. K. Booth, Captain li. F. Craig, First Lieutenant A. 11. Davidson. First Lieutenant . H. McGowan, First Lieutenant Alex Goc-hr, First Lieutenant C. Bach, First Lieutenant C. Z. McGee. Second Lieutenant J. M. 1'ettr, Second Lieutenant J. A. Brown, Second Lieutenant Arthur Norton, Second Lieutenant J. V. bergstrom. Soldiers Welcome Returning CaTalry When the transport Meade docked this morn-icg the Joyful soldiers comprising the Eleventh Calvary were transferred in the river boats Resolute and Sunol to the Presidio, where they were met by the entire port garrison, commanded by Colonel Rawles. The men were given a warm greeting and escorted to their camp on the hill south of the car lice. It is expected that the regiment will b,e mustered out on March 11th. The twenty-four deported men who were brought over on the Meade were sent to A7-catraz, where they will be held for a few days. Then they will each be given a suit of clothes and $0, to give them a new start In life. Pugilist Who Will Work. Billy Woods, the well-known heavy-weight pugilist of Denver, is something different from the average fighter. He will work, and when the Meade docked this morning those who follow the Sstic game and happened aboard recognized in a big brawny fireman the erstwhile pugilist. Woods likes the sea and is going back to the Philippines and from there to Australia. Said to Be the Maxim. It is now believed by shipping men that the capsized schooner which various vessels have sighted up the coast during the last few weeks is none other than the Maxim, which left here for Eureka on January 23d. The Maxim, which was commanded by Captain Olsen, has never been heard from since the day she left this port. She is owned by the Caspar Lumber Company. MUCH TOO PLAYFUL FOR HIS COMFORT. Fred Raabe Demands Five Thousand Dollars as Damages in Payment for Joe King's Joking. "They can tie cans to a dog's tail and start him off breaking world's records, but when a man puts cow itch down my back while I'm atleep I can't see the joke," said Fred Raabe, the Democratic politician, as he announced to friends yesterday his intention of bringing suit agianst former Supervisor Joe King for Jo.OOO carnages. Raabe alleges that King, in an attempt to be funny put the disagreeable irritant on his neck and back. He says his feelings and sensibilities were greatly hurt and he has been since Wednesday morning showing his friends on the water front, where he labors for the Harbor Commissioners, the effects of Joe King's joking. It seems that Monday night Raabe fell asleep in a chair at King's Hotel. It was1 a ripe opportunity for a little fun at his expense. Orator O'Brien quoted a little Shakes peare and Docley philosophy apropos of sleep and wine and sport, and the petty stuff went down the Iroquois brave's neck. When he awoke he gave a few shrugs, jumped from the chair thoroughly awakened, and without a word bolted for the water front. 'I'll make Mm pay for his fun," says the suffering Raabe, "and he won't think it much of a joke to be sued for Jo.000. Coremakers' Union.

Warren Charges mat Some One Gave the Animals Deadly Drugs. tv th ht horses in Contractor C. A. Warren's stables at 212 Ninth street died suddenly night before last, and because of suspicious circumstances preceding the occurrence Warren makes the charge that the ani-m.i ror nniaoned. When seen at his resi dence on Van Ngss avenue last evening Con tractor Warren Baid: "Yes, I believe my horses were poisoned. My reason for thinking so is not based aito-oothor nn th veterinary' report either, but partly on the fact that my own life has been threatened within the week by some parties who wrote me an anonymous letter to that effect. The letter came from parties who are dissatisfied with the way I employ my help. 'My opinion is that, Detng airaia 10 try a hand on me, the miBcreants are trying to bother me bj killing the horses. The animals that died were sick for only a tew nours. every Bjmptom pointed to poisoning. Dr. Masselo, who takes care of my animals, will perform an autopsy to make sure. I have already offered J500 to any one who can bring a proof that poison was administered, and if any one does do that you may be sure I will make it warm for somebody."

Promptly at 9:20, on thetop of high water, yesterday morning, the little warship was started on her way to the water. Just as she commenced to slide on the ways Miss Ethel Leila Preble of Berkeley, a descend ant of Admiral Preble, In honor of wbose memory the craft is named, broke a bottle of wine over her bows nad formally ohrls- tened her. The Preble, a launched, Is almost ready for her trial trip. Her boilers and engines are In place and about all that Is required to get her under way Is to get up steam. Three vessels of the type of the Preble were built at the Union Iron Works. The Perry was launched several weeks ago and recently she was given a trial spin around the bay. The Preble is hartjly wet with the water and the third, the Paul Jones, Is still on the ways, but she will be ready for launching this month. The three boats are counterparts. Each has four smokestacks and they are required to be able to speed at a rate of 29 nautical miles an hour. Thev are 245 feet long on the water line and"23 feet beam.
