Ber nards Take Their Defent. The Chicago Times of August 27th pub lishes a special dispatch sent by its correspondent in San Francisco on the day of the departure of the St. Bernard Com-mandery as follows: To-day the streets of 'Frisco wore a deserted aspect, as com pared with the animated scenes of last week. Many of the Knights and lay visitors left the city last night, and a great many more followed this morning. By Tuesday it is likely that the resident popu lation will be all that is left of the great throngs which the streets bore during the twenty-second triennial conclave.

St, Bernard commandery got its guests together, and this afternoon at 3 o'clock the Chicago party took their special train for home, which thev expect to reacn naay. uenerauy speak ing, the visitors leave San Francisco with the opinion that the conclave was a success. This complimentary verdict is not altogether unanimous, though, for the result of the competitive drill remains a blot upon the last day's events. Tea was to be expected, this result is not accepted by all concerned with the best feelings of satisfaction. St.

Bernard is loud in its denunciations of what the members term the injustice of the decision. Probably there may and probably there may not have been sufficient grounds for their charges. They claimed before leaving to-day to have authentic information that the judges were all southern sympathizers, and that early in the week they gave the Louisville company assurances of tbeir favor. Acting on the hint, they allege, Col. Northrup, of De Molay, who.

was further advised of the character of the programme, ceaselessly drilled his men in double-time evolutions. ihese double-time movements. are declared to have been entirely unexpected, and numerous ones out of all reason, comprising one-half the evolutions, so that St. Bernard was taken at a disadvantage. And further than this, it is charged that the judges did not attempt to keep an accurate score of the movements.

When asked for the score, it is said the judges refused to announce it. A gentleman who professed to be in the confidence of the judges told Capt. Purin-ton, so it is raid, that St. Brrnard would be matter how they drilled. ne rurtner aasurea mm mat any money 1- POTTKR In thl city, August SI, George Potter, XrKriencia am! aeniiAintAnrMi am MmMtMi.

CALIFORNIA THEATRE. During the past week the Union Square Company has been playing at the California Theatre to good houses. Dumas' great play, Let was given during the early part of the week and undoubtedly scored a success. The role of the self-denying serf, Ossip. was filled successfully by Mr.

Whiting who did not attempt the heroics of his predecessors in the part. Misa Minnie Conway showed to greater advantage as the Princess than in any other character in which she has appeared during the engagement. The part is suited to her somewhat hard and cold style. Maud Harrison and Stoddart were as good as they always are, and may be mentioned as the only really satisfactory members of the company. During the latter part of the week Daniel Bochat was given, but cannot be -said to have been a suocefs.

Miss Minnie Conway appeared to signal disadvantage when compared with Sarah Jewett, wo was so much admired in the part last year. Next week the Light of London will be revived and will give Stoddart an opportunity of renewing his triumphs of last year in the character of the hard-hearted north country farmer. THE During the past week the Tudors have been drawing excellent houses the Colosseum, and deservedly so, the performance being unique, classical and pure in its tone throughout. To-night is the last opportunity which this community will have of witnessing the most novel entertainment which has, as yet, appeared in this city, and no one should miss seeing the beautiful stereoplicon views and the handsome prismatic fountain display. THE TIVOLI.

The Long Strike has been running very successfully at the Tivali Opera House during the past week which demonstrates that this city can support a first-class dramatic entertainment. Next week the Winniny Hand with James M. Ward and Carrie Clarke Ward in the leading roles will be presented with a fine support. Oakland should take pride in encouraging a company which has clone so much to revive an interest in local theatrical repre sentations. THE CALLEXDEBS.

Crowded houses are nightly greeting the unique and novel minstrel entertainment offered by the Calleoder minstrel', and ft is generally conceded that it is one of the most original and interesting entertain ments ever given in San I rancisco.

Shakespeare ues more different words than any other writer in the English language. There are about 15,000 different words in his plays and sonnet, while no other writer uses as maov as 10.000. A few writers use 0,000 words, but the great majority do not employ more than 8,000. In conversation only from 3,000 to 5,000 different words are used.

The trouble arose out of Mr. McConnelHs declination to keerjr a contract of J. H. Haverly's. which he had verballv assumed, as Mr.

Stetson claims. It was a condition of McKee Rankin's engagement at the Union Square, writes a New York correspondent, that he should reduce his weight twenty -five pounds. Hi is accomplishing this in the manner common to athletes, by eating plain, non-fat producing food and taking plenty of exercise. The New York World says Some kind of moral pressure, it is understood, has been brought to bear upon Mr. Wallack adversely to the retention of Mr.

Osmond Tearle in his company. Several of the professional sheets." tw called, which. whatever else they may be, are very often the mouthpieces of actors aad actresses, have openly suggested Mr. Tearle's discharge from Mr. Wallack's company.

It is pointed out that Mr. retired Mr. de Belleville because that actor has run counter to public opinion. If the actors who onnider character of more weight than reputation were to refuse to play with Mr. Tearle, perhaps Mr.

Wallack, like larger capitalists, wonld feel the weight of the objections. COAST ITEMS. A dangerous fire near Astoria has been subdued. Trade, for August, in O'recon has been highly unsatisfactory. The first rain of the season fell at Red Bluff and Yreka yesterday.

a How She Dm. Her Rival Frantic With a Ferjreft Letter. Chicago, August 31st The Tribune' Syracuse (N. apecial says: The con duct of a woman who is here, ostensibly in search of Mrs. Hattie Jane Powell, who is represented to have left Rochester recently on account of a forged letter, indicating that some person with whom she was in love had deserted her to marry another, is very mys'eriona.

She passes under the name of Miss Jennie Daniels and has caused advertisements to be inserted in various papers along the line of the Cen tral Railroad, calculated to attract Mm PowelL'8 attention and induce her to return home. 1 ne advertisement reads ATTI The letter which caused you to feel so badly was a f. rgery he will never marry any one but you. Jennie. A postal card also has been extensivelv circulated, offering 5100 reward for infor mation that will enable Jennie to find Hattie Jane.

The card say that the missing person left Rochet ter on Thursday evening, the 23d inst. Her two large trunks were checked for Syracuse, but as she mailed a letter showing that she was going to New ork City, she may have bad her trunks. checked De lore or Alter the train stopped at Syracuse. However, a person saw' her go off at Syracuse and noticed her crying previously on tne train. Miss Daniels was seen to-day, but posi tively reiuses to give any further inform tion than is imparted in the postal card and advertisements.

She declines to say who Mrs. FoweH is, or why she left her friends, or what the circumstances sur rounding the esse are. She has not asked the assistance of the police. An unknown man who is accompanying Miss Daniels, however, said that Mrs. Powell was from San Francisco and.

was well known in that city. She is a lady of wealth and owns property, he said, in Buffalo. Rochester, and in the vicinity of Niagara Falls. For the last six months she has been in this part of the country attending to her property, and -s sold $50,000 worm oi real estate in thw neighborhood She also owns bank stock in Chicago and San Francfsco. Accordng to this story Mrs.

Powell i a widow, engaged to a gentleman to whom she is deeply attached. Mrs. lowell spent but a short time in Rochester, and while there received a letter which purported to be from her lover, saving: "I must choose between love and duty; 1 cannot marry you, but must marry. The man said: "This letter was written by a woman who was jealous- of Mrs. Powell and wanted to marry her lover.

This letter drove Mm. Powell frantic. one said tnat sue wan tea to go to some secluded place, and came to Syracuse, but now we do not thmK she is here. Very likely she nas gone to Europe, for she talked of doing ho. Miss Daniels used to wai; on Mrs.

Powell, and I am a friend of Miss Daniels. I don't think it any use to look for Mrs. Powell any more. She has probably gone to some quiet place, or else to Europe, and I think that when she reads that letter more carefully she will see that it ia a forgery." LIYERMORE ITEMS. Herald, Augunt 30th.

A pecial feature of the evening was the presence of genial, hearty, on-loving Jno. L. Cooperl of Santa Cruz, whom the "Tramps" all love and call "Uncle Johnny." With vivid recollection of the kindness and hospitality shown by Uncle John to them, in Santa Cruz, last Jnne, they last evening 'presented him with a handsome black ebony, gold-headed cane, in token of their grateful appreciation. The old gentleman I was so completely surprised and overcome that words tailed him completely, and a song was started at once to cover his confusion. The handle of the cane i square crooked, of gold elaborately chased.

On one end is engraved "To Uncle John on the other the letters M. T. in large mono-oftram, and in the center of one side, "with love of the Merry Tramps, August 25, xooo. a Deautum album containing a photograph of each Tramp was also exhibited. It is intended for Mrs.

Haslam of Santa Cruz, to whom the M. are indebted for many favors while there. Her thoughtfulness and motherly care has not been forgotten. Her absence 1 last evening was regretted, and the album! will be sent to her at once. A bountiful repast had been prepared by the kind entertainers, and the Al.

did ample justice to the tempting delicacies. Then came a delightful surprise in the presentation to each Tramp of a neat little whitewood palette, appropriately painted to represent some little idiosyncracy of or incident connected with the camp life of the recipient. The painting was done by the fair hand of the boat, Mis Ida Watson, and in each instance was admirably executed, calling forth the highest praise from her fellow Tramps. They are beautiful little souvenirs. At a late hour the party dispersed, well pleased with the evening's entertainment.

nd voting that it was quite jolly to) be a iramp. TINOCO-MABSK. Among the recent weddings, decidedly the most brilliant was that at the residence of Consul Tinoco, of San Salvador, Saturday evening.

Owens, who is are with or without foundation, are circulating to-day, and they are causing somewhat of a sensation. The judges have as yet made no reply to the charges, and it is not likely they wUl do so. Whatever truth exists in the accusations there are one or two things which strike those who witnessed the drill.

This matter of the prize-drill has caused a very strong feeling of bitterness, and it is likely to result in some unpleasant things. Calm observers can only deprecate spirit which prompts the begrudging of an honor to a company, northern or southern, which judges, selected for their technical knowledge and impartiality, have awarded to them. It is said St. Bernard will challenge De Molay at the earliest opportunity for the championship. ILLICIT LOVE Ending in Harder and Suicide at Elgin, Illinois.
