MASSING TROOPS FOR A CAMPAIGN IN THE TROPICS Light Canvas Clothing to Be Issued to the Men Comprising the Philippine Expedition. THE concentration of troops at the Presidio is going forward with commendable promptness. The space on the reservation between the tents of the Fourteenth United States Infantry and the Seventh California Regiment of Volunteer Infantry will soon be occupied by the First and Second battalions of California Volunteers and regiments from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah and Montana. Three more companies of the Fourteenth Infantry, and perhaps BeveraJ troops of the Fourth United States Cavalry, will arrive before many days. Major-General Merriam was at Vancouver Barracks yesterday, arranging for The equipment of Washington and n volunteers. He will probably be in San Francisco before the end of the present week. Brigadier-General Anderson is said to be en route to this tity. It is understood at the Presidio that he will take command of all the troops on the tented field of the reservation as soon as he arrives. The greatest activity prevails at department headquarters of the United States army in this city. Captain Oscar F. Long, acting chief quartermaster of the department, was busy yesterday arranging the details for the loading of ships recently chartered by the Government for the proposed expeditions to Manila. Dispatches from Washington announce that the steamships Australia, City of Peking and City of Sydney have been secured. It is understood that the Peking will be the first ship to sail and that her cargo will consist mainly of supplies and naval stores for Admiral Dewey's fleet. The other two vessels will carry troops. The fact that the Secretary of War has ordered quite a number of volunteer regiments to be concentrated at the Presidio is accepted by the troops as an assurance that the volunteers as well as the regulars will join the expeditions to the Philippines. The volunteer troops of California now concentrated in San Francisco congist of seven companies of infantry from the San Joaquin Valley and one company from Sacramento, comprising the First and Second battalions; the Seventh Regiment of Volunteer Infantry from Southern California; the First Regiment of Volunteer Infantry from the city and four batteries of heavy artillery volunteers — one from Sacramento, one from Los Angeles and two from San Francisco. CAMP OF THE VOLUNTEERS. Men o? the First and Sev= enth California Ea^er for Service at Manila. The First an- Seventh regiments have now become thoroughly settled in the routine of camp life, and the men and officers are rapidly rounding into soldiers. The non-commissioned officers were busily engaged yesterday in drilling the raw recruits of the different companies, and the companies were also put through company drill. Guard mount took place at 7:45 o'clock yesterday morning, and the guard made an excellent appearance, while the playing of the band showed such noticeable improvement as to call f. irth unstinted praise from Colonel Smith and his staff. Colonel Smith and his field and staff officers were the guests of Captain Lockett yesterday morning at 8:30 o'clock, and they rode to the golf grounds of the Pre- Hklio, where they witnessed a battalion drill of the Fourth Cavalry, under the command of Captain Lockett. The battalion was put through all the field movements that troops are called upon to execute in time of war. Scouts were thrown out and an imaginary enemy was i harged. Colonel Smith and his officers were greatly pleased and instructed by the drill. From the way the new soldiers are wrkir.g to get into shape, from the colonel down to the line, it can be easily that they are all anxious to get away to The men s.-em imbued with but one spirit, and it is that they may be prepared when the call comes, for there is hardly any doubt that the First will be one of the volunteer regiments chosen by the Government to go to the support of Admiral Dewey. If it goes. Colonel Smith declares that his command may be relied on to give a account of itself and to do its duty ! under all circumstances. The First an<! Seventh regiment camps were thronged with visitors yesterday, and especially waa this true of the camp of the former. All of the families, friends and relatives of the men who are to go to Manila came out to see how near their sons, brothers and husbands had approached the stage of veteranship. Idle curiosity was superseded by ardent admiration, and willing feminine ears listened eagerly to the stories of camp life that the boys had to tell. Lieutenant N«aU, Fourth Artillery, united States army, who has been appointed acting chief quartermaster of the volunteer regiments, was busy yesterday looksig after the needs of the two commands. He instructed Colonels Smith ana Berry to ascertain just exactly what they needed, so that they ni'.ght be aoie to make the proper requisitions upon his department. Lieutenant Neall said that tho troops were well supplied in the way of rations as far as was necessary to keep them in camp from day to day, but that they yet needed many supplies before they would be in shape to go to Manila. He remarked that it would take at least ten days to equip 10.000 troops. The ammunition is expected here in the near future. Some of the troops that will go to Manila with the volunteers have not yet been recruited. Upon a conservative estimate, it can be safely said that the regiments will not be in shape to leave before the 20th of this month. A. W. Kimball has been commissioned by Governor Budd to be tirst lieutenant and regimental quartermaster of the Seventh Regiment. He was mustered into the service by Captain Carrington yesterday afternoon and immediately took charge of his department. He formerly held the same ofllce in the Fifth Regiment. The adjutant -general of the Department of California Is In receipt of the following dispatch: "Vancouver Barracks, Washington, "May 10, 1898. "Adjutant-General, Department of California: If troops go to Manila each man should have a suit of brown canvas cloth- Ir.g and two white suits, medium light woolen underwear and barrack shoes. Canvas clothing as now issued for fatigue wear will answer. Take preparatory action. Merriam, Brigadier-General." In the Seventh Regiment 155 men failed to pass the physical examination and they will be sent back to their homes at the expense of the Government. In Company D all of the commissioned officers who came with the company from Los Angeles failed to pass the physical examination. They were Captain Thomas and Lieutenants Reynolds and Phillips. H. T. Matthews has been appointed captain, J. A. Eason and Samuel Crawford lieutenants. All of these officers have seen service in the National Guard and have excellent records. Captain Farrell, one of the assistant surgeons of the- First, relieved Captain Rethers yesterday. The two surgeons will be in command of the hospital corps upon alternate days while the regiment remains in camp. The camp inspection of the First was made yesterday by Captain Sutliffe and Captain Rethers. One hundred and eighty men were treated at the hospital of the volunteer command at the Presidio yesterday. There is one serious case of fever which the surgeons are watching closely. A committee of native daughters of California visited the volunteers at the Presidio yesterday and arranged to supply each soldier with a housekeeper's kit. THE QUOTA IS IN THE FIELD. Prompt Work at State Headquarters Highly Commended. The turning over to the United States of California's quota of volunteers called for by the President's proclamation was completed by Governor Budd yesterday, and with the exception of a few minor details the executive of the State of California will have complied with every demand in connection with what is one of the memorable events in the history of the State. The furnishing of California's quota of troops was done with such remarkable expedition that it has called forth words of commendation from the War Department at Washington, from General H. C. Merriam, commander of the department of California and the Columbia, and from many other sources. Upon General Barrett will devolve the work of clearing up the clerical end of the great undertaking and looking after the State's interest with the general Government, in which both Colonel Fred Bur- I gin and Colonel Phillip L. Bush will conj tinue their valuable services until the decks are cleared. The following communication indicates the appointments made by the Governor yesterday and which completes the full quota of officers called for: SAX FRANCISCO. Cal., May 10, IS9B. Captain F. tie L.

L. McKeeby.and A. E. McKenzle. Very respectfully, A. W. BARRETT, Adjutant-General. The Southern Pacific Company has received instructions from its Eastern connections to nialje arrangements for the transportation of 1200 volunteer troops from Denver and 300 from Salt Lake, who will come by way of Ogden. It is also highly probable that many more will come from Boise, Idaho, Helena, Mont., and St. Paul, Minn., probably by way of Portland, though arrangements may yet be made to bring them via Ogden also. The number of volunteers is not definitely known, but it will no doubt amount altogether to some 4000 men. SOLDIERS AT A BANQUET. Magnificent Testimonial to the First and Seventh Regiments, California Volunteers. The banquet tendered by Major General Dickinson and staff to the field, staff and LEADER OF THE FOURTEENH Major Charles F. Robe, the Commander of the Washington Regulars, medical officers of the First and Seventh regiments, United States California Volunteers, at the California Hotel last night, was a magnificent affair, and the success was all the more noteworthy by reason of the fact that the event was arranged in a single afternoon, for at 2 o'clock yesterday General Dickinson and staff conceived the idea of bringing the officers together Who had enlisted to defend the country's flag and honor. The invitations were sent out by telephone, the menu was given in the hands of the printer at 3, and at 7 in the evening guests to the number of seventy-eight sat down to an elaborate repast, and in five hours all the preliminaries had culminated in one of the grandest affairs of that description ever held in this city. The banquet hail had been decorated profusely with Old Glory, as If those seventy-eight loyal hearts and true were bent on showing how dear to their hearts is the dear old star-spangled banner. Flowers were in abundance also, and the wonder is that a banquet so complete in every detail could be gotten up at a moment's notice. All the guests were in fatigue uniforms, with here and there a civilian in full evening attire. General Dickinson was toastmaster, and on his right sat Adjutant General Barrett On his left were General Last, the pride of the Seventh Rfgiment; Irving M. Scott, Hugh Craig, Captain Currington. Lieutenant S. A. Cluman, "William Cluff and W. H. Chamberlain. Governor Budd and Mayor Phelan were unable to attend and sent their regrets. Patriotism was also manifested in the menu card, and such dishes as "Polsson a la Sampson," "Punch a la Dewey," "Oregon Blue Points," Matanzas Lettuce," "Infantry Riesling" and '•Artillery Claret" served to whet the appetites and quench the thirst of the soldiers, while music of a patriotic character roused the BROWN SERVED BY A MARSHAL Defendant In Mrs. Humphreys' Breach of Promise Case Is Found. His Letters Show a Strange Mingling of Business and Love Making. Cyrus Elwood Brown, president of the Gowanus Mining Company, who has been sued for $100,000 by Mrs. Alta Humphreys, was served by a deputy United States Marshal yesterday. He was much worried over the suit, which he denounced as blackmail. ErnmoQS & Emmons, attorneys for the plaintiff, say that their client is a business woman whose reputation is untarnished. She is accompanied by her son, a boy of 13, who takes a great deal of interest In the suit. A perusal of some of the sixty-two letters which Brown is said to have written the plaintiff shows that he was master of the art of mixing love and business. In several of his letters he dwells for a page on his Idea of love, marriage and women, after which he suddenly digresses with j expressions purely commercial. One let- | ter ends as follows: "My little charmer, | I believfe in love and do not believe In marrying for money or position. The human heart criea out for congenial com- | panionship. Inclosed you will find a | prospectus of the mining company. You can interest your frionds in it. I would not ask you to do it, except that I know you are a business "woman." He speaks of his life as a recluse, say- Ing that he has deserted society since his wife's death sixteen years ago. But the unfortunate fact for Mrs. Humphreys is that the .wife spoken of as dead, la alive] listeners to outbursts of hearty applause and ringing cheers. There were no set speeches, but almost all present had something to say to contribute hie quota to making the affair the success that it was. Among those who responded were Colonel James F. Smith, Colonel John Berry, Colonel Hopkins, Major Rice and Colonel Macdonald. The special guests present were Brigadier Last and staff. First Brigade, N. G. C, and Brigadier General Warfield and staff. Second Brigade, N. G. C. WILL CARRY NO TROOPS The Navy Department Will Make a Supply Ship of the Peking. The steamer Peking will be clear of her cargo this morning, and she will be turned over to the Navy Department at once. Her first trip will be to the drydock, and then she will be loaded with supplies for Dewey's fleet at Manila. I Supplies are already being purchased. ! so the work of loading will be commenced as soon as the vessel is in the water i again. There will be stores for the ves| sels of the Asiatic squadron and ammunition to take the place of the powder and : shell that did such good work in Manila i harbor. The Navy Department is not do| ing anything about coal, however, and the i supposition is that Dewey has all he ; wants. It is known that there was a large ; amount of coal stored at Manila, and this I must now be in Dewey' s hands, so the ; Government is not worrying about the j coal supply in Asiatic waters. So far no provision has been made to i transport troops on the Poking. At tho navy pay-office it is given out that the i navy is fitting her up as a supply ship ! and is doing nothing for the accommodaj tion of troops on board. The transportai tion of troops and the chartering of yes- I seb3 for that purpose belongs to the army, j and so all arrangements of that kind have been left to the army quartermasters. Admiral Miller, who arrived here on the Peking on Monday night, has reported to ', the Navy Department, but had received !no orders up to last evening. It is his ■ intention to ruiye his flag on one of the ! vessels here — probably the Monterey—unj less orders from Washington interfere The Monterey is tho only vessel here with accommodations for a fkig officer, and even then he will have to take the quari ters of the captain, for as yet there is no I captain on board the Monterey. Twenty men were passed by the naval recruiting officers yesterday, and all were sent up to the navy-yard to the Indt;-pendence last evening. The office at I present is shipping only first-class mai chinists, first-class firemen, seamen and i ordinary seamen. As the Charleston will I take away nearly all the available men ! when she is fully commissioned and the I Philadelphia and Yorktown will both need 1 full crews, it is expected that before long and has been living with Brown all the time. She is now visiting in Brooklyn, where she has been for several weeks. FLOWEBS AND MUSIC. Eighth Annual Exhibition and Bose Show of the State Floral Society. The war excitement will not prevent the California State Floral Society from giving its annual show, although there has been some talk of dispensing with it this year for that reason. The management, however, has concluded that home industries should not be let drop on account of the international excitement. The show opens in Golden Gate Hall on Thursday at 1 p. m. and closes Saturday at 10 p. m. Although conditions have been somewhat against them this year the management expects that this show will be at least equal If not superior to any former one. There are already about forty exhibitors entered on the list, and some of the counties have yet to be heard from. The management has prepared a splendid premium list and $400 in prizes | will be distributed. An orchestra has been engaged to furnish music throughout the show, and all arrangements have I been made to comfortably accommodate I the public. Following is the committee of arrangements: John Hinkle, manager; Mrs. W. H. Wiester, secretary; Mrs. B. E. Hendrickson, Mrs. J. R. Martin. Mrs. T. Waiker, Mrs. C. D. Friedman and Mrs. M. Grothwell. Mrs. Heinrich Set Free. Mrs. Dorette Heinrich, who was arrested last Saturday night on a charge of insanity preferred by her husband, B. Heinrich, an engineer In the employ of the Electric Light Company, was discharged from custody yesterday by order of Judges Hunt and Troutt. The examining physicians of the Insanity Commission gave it as their opinion that Mrs. Heinrich was sane. She claims that her husband tried to get rid of her, having become infatuated with another woman. The Seini-Centennial. There will be a meeting of the presidents of the principal associations of the i| the recruiting office will be shipping all classes of men. . „ • s*'-= ■• '-■■"- ;■' — ■ » .— • : - WANTED THEIR OWN OFFICERS Company L of the Seventh Regiment Objects to Political Leaders. Mutiny broke out in the ranks of the Seventh Infantry, California Volunteers, on Monday, and for a time it looked as If though Colonel Berry would be short one entire company at least. The trouble, according to the statements of some of the officers and all the men, and nobody has seen fit to deny them, was due to an attempt of one officer to pay off some political obligations at the expense of certain officers of the regiment. Vague rumors of the scheme were in circulation before the regiment left the south, but nothing definite was learned until just before Captain Carrington began to muster the companies into the volunteer service. Company L from Santa Ana wanted Lieutenant Walter Greenkaf in the place of N. A. Ulm. and the latter finally resigned in Greenleafs favor, to the great satisfaction of the company. The* other officers of the Seventh who were summarily dropped were Lieutenant Allen, Company A; Lieutenant George, Company C; Lieutenant Saye, Company E; Lieutenant Sloate, Company K. One of the officers of the Seventh who failed to pass the physical examination was Major Bangham. His place will be filled by Lieutenant Colonel Welch of General Last's staff. Regulars Arrive. Headed by the splendid regimental band four companies of the Fourteenth United States Infantry landed at the Marketstreet ferry at 10:30 o'clock on Monday morning, and without pomp or ceremony marched up Market street to Golden Gate avenue, out that thoroughfare to Van Ness, to Lombard street, to the Presidio. Major Robe commanded the battalion, with First Lieutenant Hunt acting as adjutant, and First Lieutenant Krauthoff, Quartermaster. The battalion is composed of Company D, Captain McCommon, Second Lieutenant Burnslde; Company F, First Lieutenant Mitchell; Company G, Second Lieutenant Miles; Company C, First Lieutenant Biddle. It averages sixty men to the company, while the band numbers twenty-three men. War Incidents. Brigadier General M. W. Muller, Third Brigade, National Guard of California, seems to stand as good a chance as any other officer to be appointed brigadier general of volunteers from California. He is a candidate for the position on his merits as a soldier, but has no political pull in his behalf. He has had twentyfour years of service with the militia, and many officers of the regular army regard him ua the most capable officer in the National Guard. He was appointed brigadier general of the State troops by Governor Markham in IS9I, and was reappointed by Governor Budd. P. H. Bernays, manager of the San Francisco branch of the Pope Manufacturing Company, makes this announcement: Any person now employed at the home or branch offices of the Pope Manufacturing Company, Hartford Rubber Works Company, Pope Tube Company or Motor Carriage Department, who shall enlist before May 20 into the volunteer service of their country In the war between the United States and Spain, will be insureil to the amount of $1000, one year, at the exi«-ns<e of the above company. Upon honorable discharge from such service the opportunity to return to the employ of the above-named companies will be given to all persons who have thus volunteered. It was the intention of the Governor to send the Sixth Infantry Intact, and he regrets that there was any misunderstanding on the part of Company F of Fresno, who offered their services conditionally, the provisions of which he was unable to accept, and which he was powerless to carry out. He was therefore compelled to select a company from some other regi-mont to fill the quota called for to make up the First Battalion. In justice to Company F, Governor Budd desires it to be stated that since the matter has been explained to the men they have made every effort to enter the service unconditionally, and deplore the fact of having unintentionally made the error which forced them to remain be- Adjutant-General A. W. Barrett yesterday received a telegram from General A. W Greely, chief signal officer of the United States army, stating that he regretted that no Quota for signal corps had been called for from volunteers, hence he could not accept the proffered services of the signalmen of California, but in case a corps was made up, California's well-trained signalmen would be the first called. The citizens of Stockton will present a etand of colors to the First Battalion of Infantry as soon as the flags are finished. The presentation will be made at the Presidio, where the battalion is expected to be encamped. Arrangements are being made to s'ipply the Police Department of San Francisco with Gatling guns and 400 Springfield rifles As there are about 1700 Springfield rifles and 200 Krag Jorgenson rifles in the arsenal at Benicia, there will be no difficulty In securing all the arms required It is the intention of the Governor to reorganize the National Guard at once, and General Dickinson, under whose supervision the reorganization will be made, says the work will begin as soon as he learns the exact status of affairs. Great care will be taken to make the National Qnard of the State much stronger than heretofore; recruits between the ages of IS and 45 only will be taken, and the men will be required to pass a rigid physical •.•xamination. The I.l '■ lectors of the "Western S'igar Ref.nni^ Ccn'ipany at a meeting yesterday adopted a resolution that any employe of the company enlisting for the war State, representatives of the press and prominent citizens at the Chamber of Commerce rooms this afternoon for the purpose of advising the '-onimittoe of tiftcen appointed by the Mayor to take charge of the celebration of the semicentennial of the admission of California into the Union. The meeting has been called by the committee of fifteen, and it is hoped to obtain, by the interchange of views, a knowledge of what is desired by the people, so that the work of arrangement will find favor with aN. The meeting will open at 1 o'clock. Outing of the Grocers. To-day the grocers will enjoy a brief respite from the monotonous rounds of workday life. Stores will be closed generally, and the grocer, his clerk, errand boy and drummer will pack up a day's provisions and hie away to Schuetzen Park for a grand reunion. This is the first affair of this kind the grocers have conducted, and its prime object is a day of pleasure. Many valuable prizes will be distributed during the day, both as gate priz.-s and for competitive events, which will include foot races, egg races, a pie eating contest, a guessing contest for the ladies, and many other events. «h:ulj receive half pay from th* company while he is in the service »>f th£ United States and be reinstated in his position a i the expiration of his enlistment. A :iinil:tr xesolution was adon:ed by the directors oi the Tubbs Cortlige Company. Troop A of the Hussars and the San Francisco Rifles have consolidate! into one organization 200 strong. The force consists largely of men who have served from one to three enlistments in the regular army. The organizers have tendered to President McKinley and Governor Budd the services of the battalion. The election of permanent officers will take place at Pythian Castle this evening. No Cable Interruption. To the Editor of the San Francisco Call— Sir: Referring to the notice in this morning's paper stating that in consequence of a break in the cable between Montevideo and Buenos Ayres telegraphic communication is interrupted as far as Buenos Ayres, the impression conveyed is incorrect. The break in the cable from Montevideo does not interrupt or interfere with the transmission of messages to any point, either Montevideo or Buenos Ayres. The Western Union, In connection with the Central and South American Cable Company at Galveston, Tex., still maintains telegraphic communication to Valparaiso, Montevideo, Buenos Ayres and all points on Brazilian lines. Yours truly, H. STEELE, Manager. Office of the Western Union Telegraph Company, San Francisco, May 10, 1898. Alger Dislikes Mosby. It has come to light that one of the reasons that Colonel Mosby has a hard time to get recognition at Washington is that he made himself active by hanging a number of the men under Secretary Alger, who was a captain of Michigan Cavalry during the war. According to a book called "Mosby's Rangers," a number of Union soldiers were engaged in burning houses at Castlemans Ferry on August 14, 1564. They were under Algei. Mosby was sent after them and he killed about twenty-five of the number, for which General Lee commended him. It is said that Alger has never been able to forgive the deed and that he has always done all he could to block Mosby in his ambitions. ST. TAMMANY'S DAY. It Will Be Observed in TLis City by Two Tribes of the Improved Order of Bed Med. To-morrow will be St. Tammany day, the day of the Improved Order of Red Men, but it will not be generally observed in this city this year on account of the fact that this is the jubilee year of the order, and arrangements are being made to have a grand celebration on the Fourth of July. Still some of the tribes will have individual observances. Modoc tribe will give an entertainment and dance in the wigwam on Post street, and It is expected that it will be joined by a number of members from tribes and councils in this city and from those across* the bay. Osceola Tribe has made arrangements for a grand trolley party for its members. This will be over the lines of the electric system, and will include a visit to North Beach, South San Francisco, the power house on the Potrero and a trip to Ingleside. L. G. Sresovich Co., The oldest shipping house In San Francisco, is doing an extensive business throughout the State, their orders being filled with care and promptness. 519-521 Sansome street.

Skeels, an estimable lady residing .at Lynnville, Jasper ■ County, lowa, was ; for twenty-five :j years a sufferer from Dyspepsia, • and ] her ' complete restoration :to health ;is j so remarkable that we present the facts " In the case for the benefit of our read- ' ers, many of whom have doubtless suf- j ; fered in the same manner and will, 7- therefore, be interested in learning how all stomach troubles may be avoided and cured. Mrs. Skeels says: I used only one package of Stuart's Dyspepsia ;i Tablets and I received such great " and ; unexpected benefit that I wish to ex- I press my sincere gratitude. ,In fact, it ' has been six months since I took the medicine and I have not had one par- ticle of distress or difficulty since. And 7 ail this in the face of the fact that the ' best doctors I consulted told me .my case was incurable, as I had suffered for twenty-five years. I want half a,, dozen packages to distribute among my friends here who are very anxious to >' try this remedy. Yours truly, ' MRS. SARAH A. SKEELS. I , The . reason why : Stuart's Dyspepsia ; Tablets are so successful in curing in- digestion and stomach trouble and the reason why it never disappoints those who need it and use it is because noth- ing is claimed for it except what it will actually perform. It is not a cure-all and no such claims are made for it.' It is ; prepared for the sole purpose of curing Dyspepsia and the various forms f of indigestion. 6£9PpS6999»ij There is scarcely a patent medicine made but what is claimed to cure dy- „ spepsia, as well as a hundred other troubles. When, as a matter of fact, a remedy to cure Dyspepsia must be pre- pared especially for that and nothing else; and among all the remedies, pat- ent nostrums, bitters, etc., so exten- sively advertised you will find .that' Stuart's Dyspepsia , Tablets is the only % one advertised as a cure for Dyspepsia ' j and nothing else. The remedy is pre- . | pared by the Stuart Company of Mar- shall, Mich., and for sale by all drug- gists at 50 cents per package, and if -'' you suffer from any form of stomach derangement or indigestion a trial will not disappoint you.
