VOLUME XXXI V.N O. 95 STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA, FIIIDAY NOVEMBER 27, 1896, 12 CENTS PER WEEK, HALE A CO. iV for I dont care as much for that as I do for cranberry. After that I relished a few mince pies, and then took a couple of slices of cheese to aid digestion, and that was really all I cared for. I dont know why, but it wasn't like other Thanksgiving Ive a scheme for next Thanksgiving, though, that Im going to try.

Im going to get up at about 4 oclock In the morning and take a five-mile walk out Into the country and back to see if I can't develop an appetite. A. V. Scanlan What did I eat yesterday? Thats a leading question that no court Would admit, except, maybe, a Justices Court. Well, If you wont say anything about the eggnog Ill waive the objection.

Yesterday was Thanksgiving, according to my Information and belief and to the turkey rafliers. I wouldnt swear positively that it was turkey, but from all appearances it Is my opinion, expressed off-handed, without looking up any authorities, that the bird was the fowl called turkey. I ate some red sauce with it, too. hand, these substances emitted the most remarkable, intense and penetrating light one can Imagine. Notwithstanding Its intensity it had no unpleasant effect upon our eyes, and we found we could gaze directly at it.

It seemed to me to be some sort of luminous mineral, though they had complete control of it. Finally they became tired of examining us and our horse and buggy, and then one of them, at a signal from one who appeared to be the leader, attempted to lift me, probably with the Intention of carrying me away. Although I made not the slightest resistance he could not move me, and finally the three of them tried it without the slightest success. They appeared to have no muscular power outside of being able to move their own limbs. STRANGE AIRSHIP.

Well, after trying in vain to move either of us they turned in the direction of the Woodbridge canal, near which we were, and as they flashed their lights towards the bridge we beheld a startling sight. There, resting in the air about twenty feet above the water, was an immense airship. It was 150 feet In length at least, though probably not over twenty feet in diameter at the widest part. It was pointed at both ends, and outside of a large rudder there was no visible machinery. The three walked rapidly toward the ship, not a9 you or I walk, but with a swaying motion, their feet only touching the ground at intervals of about fifteen feet.

We followed them as rapidly as possible, and reached the bridge as they were about to embark. With a little spring they rose to the machine, opened a door in the side, and disappeared within. I do not know of what the affair was built, but just before it started I struck it with a rock and It gave no sound. It went through the air very rapidly and expanded and contracted with a muscular motion, and was soon out of sight. I have a theory, which, of course, is only a theory, that those we beheld were inhabitants of Mars, who have been sent to the earth for the purpose of securing one of its inhabitants.

I feel safe in asserting that the stories being told by certain San Francisco attorneys are clumsy fakes, and should not be given credence by anyone." HALE TRUNKS AND VALISES?

And the Stockton Boys Couldnt Row Fast Enough. Al Brown Defeated by McCausIand, and tbe Intermediates From This City Beaten by the Alameda Crew.

The Stockton oarsmen were not successful yesterday at the regattaheldon Oakland creek under the auspices of the Pacific Coast Athletic Association. Al. Brown up to the conclusion of the senior single scull event was champion of the Pacific Coast. After the race the championship went to McCausIand, who was beaten here by Brown at the Admission Day regatta. The intermediate crew from this city secured second place In Its class.

Joe Foley of this city did not enter the junior single scull race. The senior four-oared barge race was postponed until next Sunday, and the only chance Stockton has of getting anything at all rests with the Giants. As announced in the telegraphic columns of the Mail yesterday, the race had to be postponed yesterday forenoon, and it seemed that in the afternoon It would also have to be pulled some other day, but those who had assembled to witness the events demanded that the races take place, and so the management ordered the rowers, to pull off the events. The day is described as being cold and raw. A chilling wind swept along the jetties and stirred the water into whitecaps.

The Stocktonians lay their defeat to the wind and waves, neither of which prevail on Stockton channel, where they had trained. McCausIand beat Brown a full length and finished In 1126. It is said that a great deal of Stockton money went into the pockets of the San Francisco backers of the winner, but all the Stocktonians managed to get home somehow. DETAILS OF THE CONTEST. In the intermediate barge event were the following entries: University of California R.

Tryer, bow; W. Gibbons, forward waist; W. O. Blasingame, after waist; W. E.

Cole, stroke; Ed. Hammer, coxswain. South End Rowing Club J. Fitzal-bert, bow; G. Fox, forward waist; Thomas Lynch, after -waist; Walter Dupflssea, George McGrill, coxswain.

Alameda Boating QuEugene Had-COck. Hanson, forward waist; A. T. Webb, after waist; Fred Ayers, stroke; E. V.

Hansen, coxswain. Stockton Athletic Association W. Folger, bow; J. Burns, forward waist; J. Silva, after waist; G.

Brownfield, stroke; W. Dolan, coxswain. The Stocktons had the best position, and they held the lead to the buoys. At the turn their new boat went around as though on a pivot, and they got away well on the return. Up to the turn the South Ends were a close second, the Alamedans third and the University crew last.

After the turn the Alamedans spurted and passed the South Ends. Soon the nose of their barge had crept alongside of the Stocktons, who were handicapped by not being used to pulling against the tide. The Alamedans won out by a length; time 10 minutes and 2 seconds. The University boys finished third, having passed the South Ends. Each, member of the victorious crew will be awarded a gold watch, and the Stocktonians will each get a silver medal.

Owing to Foleys failure to start J. B. Keenan was awarded the gold and diamond medal for the junior single scull event. He pulled over the course, as the boating laws require. Two of the boats in the single outrigger event capsized and that race, together with the senior barge race and two other contests, was postponed until Sunday next at Long Beach bridge.

THE OARSMEN RETURN. The defeated oarsmen and their admirers, or rather those who admired them before they were defeated, have returned home. Some came up by train last night and others arrived by boat this morning. Al. Brown had nothing to say about his defeat.

He still thinks though, that he can beat McCausIand rowing a boat. He says I wont play in your yard," though, and declares that the next time he will row It will be over Stockton channel. After the race yesterday Brown could not manage his scull in the rough water, so he jumped out and swam around until a tug was sent after him and brought himself and craft in. WANTED TO WEAR DIAMONDS. The intermediate crew of this city was very confident.

A good story is told on Will Folger. So confident were he and his fellow-oarsmen of winning that Folger, so It Is said, stipulated before entering the race that the prize of a gold watch offered each of the winners should be changed in his ease to diamond ring. The Stocktonians claim that they did not have to leave their diamonds and overcoats in the city in order to get home. They say very little money changed hands on the result of the races, for the reason that none would bet against the oarsmen from this city. The Stocktons had lots of backers, who had all kinds of money, and now they are very glad that the San Franciscans were taught when they went to Sunday school that it was wrong to bet.

THE SENIORS STILL CONFIDENT. The senior crew is sure that it will in part win back the honors which were wrested from the other boatmen from this city. They will have a chance to practice over the course, as they remained In the metropolis. But they might find, as the intermediates did, that confidence is not such a fine thing as the politicians say it is, even in the matter of pulling a boat.

Mr. Dunlaps Modest Appetite. A number of well-known Stocktonians to-day confessed to a Mall reporter what they ate on Thanksgiving Day, as follows: M. Friedberger No, I didn't eat any turkey; didnt have time; was too busy selling silver novelties. All I had was a ham sandwich and a little salad.

Chief of Police Kingsbury Did I eat turkey, ad lib? Well, I had turkey, but I didnt notice any ad lib. Guess the folks dont know how to cook It up at our house. I had a good dinner, anyway; such as you get way down In Maine. Mr. Botkin Course I had turkey; always have turkey on Thanksgiving, especially when the wheat market has an upward tendency.

Im mighty fond of turkey, but I know enough to quit when I get full. You don't find me hunting around for any feathers Jo eat after Ive finished the bones. Captain Smith Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day, sure enough. Do you know, I was so busy shipping wheat yesterday that I forgot all about getting a turkey until it was too late, and then I found that all the young ones had been sold and nothing remained but a few gobblers too tough to eat. I was greatly disappointed, too.

Bert Lewis Did I eat turkey? Well, I guess I did. I dont know of anything I would rather have unless it is more turkey. For dessert I had cranberry josh and a good old mince pie. Judge Rendon I think I can say that I dealt justly and impartially with a well-prepared hen turkey, supplemented with the conventional cranberry sauce and mince pie. It was a case of imprisonment without alternative.

Librarian Clowdsley Whats that? You dont suppose I ate a Nevada jack-rabbit, do you? I guess I know enough to eat turkey when occasion, demands. Dessert? Lets see. Why, there was well, everything that goes with the regular layout. You know just as well as I do. Artist de Treville If you dont think I had a Thanksgiving Day dinner yesterday, you Just try to get your finger' under my waistband; its tight yet.

I didnt eat so very much, either. You know I dont like the neck of a turkey, so I left that. It was a small bird, though; probably didnt weigh over eight or ten pounds. I got a small one on purpose, so I would have room for some of the little delicacies which go with it. I tapered off on a couple of mince pies and a few side dishes of cranberry sauce.

Taken altogether, though, I didnt break any records. These pantaloons always were a little tight around the waist, anyway. Billy Gumpert The only trouble that I have on Thanksgiving is that when I get a turkey in front of me I never know when to quit. There is something about a turkey that attracts me, and I cant resist; I just have to eat. Deputy Constable Hersom I ate a turkey that I won down here.

He weighed twelve pounds dressed, and I ate the dressing, too. Tell you what, they had a mighty fine turkey dinner in this saloon across the street for 15 cents, but I didnt have that much and had to eat at home. Willis Lynch Well, Thanksgiving is a holiday, you know, and bo we dont have to teach school. Every holiday I get to thinking of my debts, and it scares me so much I dont have any appetite. Say, I must get out of sight; I look like the deuce been working on my house to-day.

James Thompson Tell you what I did, for a fact: Friend of mine sent me down some preserved horseflesh, and I had it for dinner instead of turkey. Its great stuff. Makes a man feel speedy. With a 2:30 chunk of horseflesh before him a pair of sheeps trotters on the side, any man fond of races ought to make a good meal. I feel like breaking anything now, from a record to a bottle of wine.

Charles Light Fact of the matter is, I ate too much altogether. It was a sin, and I fear it will have to be expur-gated; I feel that way to-day. Frank Dunlap Well, I didnt eat much yesterday; somehow I didn't have my usual appetite. When I sat down to the table I nibbled away on some crab salad that was pretty good, but somehow I didnt care much about eating. Nobody else liked it, though, so I had to eat most of it.

Then I drank a plate of chicken soup, which was-oh, it was fine. Here Mr. Dunlap smacked his lips appreciatively. I knew I couldnt eat any turkey, be-cause, as I said, I didnit feel like eating, so I just took another plate of that soup. Well, I didnt have the heart to tackle turkey, so I tried a piece of roast pork.

Well, Im always fond of roast pork, whether Im hungry or not, so I think I passed my plate well, only twice. Then I told my wife that if shed just give me a piece of mince pie I would feel quite well satisfied, but she insisted that I must eat a piece of turkey whatever I should do. Ill just give you a nice piece of the breast, she said. I said, Well, all right, so she cut off a dainty bit of white meat, and also put on the edge of the plate a leg with which any turkey, might make a fortune on the stage and a wing also. I intended merely to taste the white flesh, but when I tried a bite of the black meat it was so good that I kept on eating it, and, by George, I managed to clean the plate, besides getting away with I think it was three dished of cranberry sauce.

Well, my wife doesnt care for the dark meat, and Ive often heard that turkey after it gets cold is never so good, so I thought I might as well eat the other leg, and the wing, too. Then I got kind of tired of the dark meat, so I ate some more of the breaBt and then took a few more slices of that roast pig, which was very fine. I ate only a few plates of apple sauce. Who Possibly Came From the Planet Mars. I Seen on a Country Road by Colonel H.

Q. Shaw and a Companion They Boarded the Airship. For more than a week the papers all over the coast have been reporting the presence of an alleged airship or flying machine, which many reputable people claim to have seen on several occasions in the heavens at night. Whether or not there really is such a contrivance navigating the air the Mail is unable to satisfactorily determine, but some of the papers have taken the matter seriously and others have been disposed to make light of the statements. A couple of San Francisco attorneys have secured a lot of free advertising by claiming to have clients who have invented and tested successful flying-ships, and the newspapers have filled several columns talking about the aerial mystery.

The Mail makes the above statement merely by way of preface to a most remarkable story which is related by Colonel H. G. Shaw of this city, formerly of the Mail editorial staff. Colo, nel Shaw is at present engaged In collecting an exhibit for the Stockton Commercial Association to be displayed at the Citrus Fair which will be held in Fresno during the coming month. The gentleman was very reticent about relating the circumstance, as he said he had no idea that it would be believed by anyone, and he was loath to appear before the public as a romancer or as a man who had looked upon shoe-string when it was red.

tells the story as follows; THREE STRANG BEINGS. Were it not for the fact that I was not alone when I witnessed the strange sight I would never have mentioned it at all. Wednesday afternoon I went out to Lodi and Lockeford in company with Camille Spooner, a young man recently arrived from Nevada. I went to the places mentioned in quest of material to form an exhibit to represent this eounty at the Fresno Citrus Fair. We left Lodi on the Tturn trip, I should judge, shortly before 6 oclock, and we' were Jogging along quietly when the horse stopped suddenly and gave a snort of terror.

Looking up we beheld three strange beings. They resembled humans in many respects' -but still they were not like anything I had ever seen. They were nearly or quite seven feet high and very slender. We were both somewhat startled, as you may readily imagine, and the first impulse was to drive on. The horse, however, refused to budge, and when we saw fhat we were being regarded more with an air of curiosity than anything else we concluded to get out and investigate.

I walked up to where the strange looking persons were and addressed them. I asked where they were They seemed not to understand me, but began well, warbling expresses it better than talking. Their remarks, if such you would call them, were addressed to each other, and sounded like a monotonous chant, in- dined to be gutteral. I saw it was no use to attempt a conversation, so I satisfied myself with watching and examining them. They seemed to take great interest in ourselves, the horse and buggy, and scrutinized everything very carefully.

WEIGHED LESS THAN AN OUNCE EACH. While they were thus engaged I was enabled to inspect them as well. As I have already stated, they were seven feet in height and very slender. I noticed, further, that their hands were quite small and delicate, and that their fingers were without nails. Their feet, however, were nearly twice as long as those of an ordinary man, though they were narrow, and the toes were also long and slender.

I noticed, top, that they were able to use their feet and toes much the same as a monkey; in fact, they appeared to have much better use of their feet than their hands. I presently discovered that this was probably a provision of nature. As one of them came close to me I reached out to touch him, and, placing my hand under his elbow, pressed gently upward, and lo and behold I lifted him from the ground with scarcely an effort. I should judge that the specific gravity of the creature was less than an ounce. It was then that I observed him try to grasp the earth with his toes to prevent my lifting him.

You can readil understand that their slight weight made such a provision necessary, or they might be blown away. I They were without any sort of clothing, but were covered with a natural growth hard to describe; it was not hair, neither was it like feathers, but it was as soft as silk to the touch, and their skin- was like velvet. Their faces and heads were without hair, the ears were very small, and the nose had the appearance of polished ivory, while the eyes were large and lustrous. The mouth, however, was small, and it seemed to me that they were without teeth. That and other things led me to believe that they neither ate nor drank, and that life was sustained by some sort of gas.

Each of them had swung under the left arm a bag to which was attached a nozzle, and every little while one or the other would place the nozzle in his mouth, at which time I heard a sound as of escaping gas. It was much the same sound as is produced by person blowing up a football. OF INDESCRIBABLE BEAUTY From the description I give I do not want you to get the idea that these creatures were hideous. In appearance they were markedly the contrary. They were possessed of a strange and indescribable beauty.

I can express myself in no other way. They were graceful to a degree, and more divinely beautiful than anything I ever beheld. The strangest part of this story is yet to come. It is the lights they carried. Each held in his hand something about the size of a hens egg.

Upon holding them up and partly opening the AMONG THE ARTISTS. Canvasses Upon Which Stockton's Amateur Paluters Are Engaged A visit to the studios of our local artists reveals the fact that Stockton Is by no means behind the times in art enthusiasm.

E. Dorr devotes her time exclusively to china painting and has several pupils engaged in the study of that fascinating branch of art At Mrs. M. E. Lefflers studio one sees some characteristic bits in water colors, and many new pieces in china.

Some tea things," done in apple green and Dresden roses, showing the artist's originality and daintiness, are especially beautiful. Several canvases by pupils under Mrs. Leffler are very interesting. Mls3 Addle Leffler is fast gaming a reputation as a flower painter. Mrs.

M. E. Atwood is another who excels in flowers. Her chrysanthemums are tastefully arranged, and true to nature are her carnations. Mamie Dorr has completed a study of Chrysanthemums From Nature" with just enough disorder in the arrangement to be artistic.

The colors are exquisitely blended and -rich and mellow in tone. Mrs. D. J. Matthews has recently finished some excellent work in oils and in pastels, notably the head of a St.

Bernard dog and a basket of peaches, both in pastels. She is now engaged on some dainty flower work on bolting cloth which is very nealt and pretty.

You Can Peddle Wbat You Make Officer Salbach yesterday fternoon brought a peddler named Spencer to the police station to ascertain whether he had been guilty of peddling without a license, under the complicated ordinance regulating that occupation. The man in custody said that he made the articles offered for sale here, which were pillow-shams.

Prosecuting Attorney Rhodes was consulted, and he held that the ordinance exempted such cases, and hence the man was told to go his way. Peter Brown was also arrested to-day for a like offense, but a warrant was denied for a similar reason. The Shoe Sale at the Arcade The special sale at the Arcade Is being pushed for all it is worth, as the people have taken1 so kindly to the idea of getting something for almost nothing that the shoe department is now crowded from morning until night. Shoes are now selling for less money at the Arcade than in any other store on the Coast. From childrens shoes up to the finest of mens shoes everything has been slashed in half, and anyone can buy good footwear nowadays.

The finest, coolest and sharpest steam beer In the city at Henry Eshbacha ROBBED BY A THUG. A Farm Laborer Knocked Senseless and Believed of C50.

John Boagg, a farm laborer, was knocked insensible with a club last evening, and was robbed of $50 by a man who had been drinking with him in the afternoon. Boagg came to town yesterday with $55 to celebrate Thanksgiving, and in a saloon he met the man who afterward robbed him. The stranger claimed to be an old friend of the farmhand burdened with money. After the two had had several drinks the newly formed acquaintance suggested that they take a little walk, and he led the unsuspecting bucolic out on the Southern posite West's winery end there hit him twice over the head with a club. The first blow staggered him and the second did the rest.

The victim of the foul play recovered just in time to see the thug running toward town. Early this morning Deputy Sheriff Black went out on. the county roads and scoured the country in search of the robber, but was unable to find any trace of him, further than that he and his victim had been seen at Good-water Grove before the robbery. The thug as obviously then taking his victim to the place where he relieved him of his cash. Constable Carroll was also out this morning searching for the fellow, but failed to locate him.

This afternoon Deputy Black learned that the man claiming to have been robbed was released from jail only yesterday morning, where he had served a sentence of ten days for disturbing the peace in Tracy. He still insisted that he had been robbed, though, and showed bruises on his head. He says that he had the money concealed on his person while in jail. DASHES HERE AND THERE.
