The lady gave a whispered order
to a waiter, who presently returned
with a number of bottles of cham
pagne. Then the lady arose, and
addressing the head waiter in a roice
that could be heard in all parts of
the room, said:
"Kindly ask the president of the
table if Queen Margharita of Savoy
could be permitted to offer cham
pagne to the gallant French officers."
The effect of these words was in
stantaneous. The officers arose and
respectfully saluted. The Queen,
alHo standing, proposed In warm
terms the health of the regiment,
which she knew thoroughly.
The Queen and her party soon
left amid a hearty cheer from the

California raises Test for Speed.
Santa Barbara, Cal., Oct. 10.
After a delay of three days, on ac
count of the haavy fog that has hung
over Santa Barbara channel since the
arrival of the California, . the new
rulser was enabled to undergo
standardization trials over the meas
ured mile course yesterday. The
California has lived up to the highest
expectations of . her builders, the
Union Iron Works, and of the naval
board, and has proved to be one of
the speediest of Uncle Sam's armored
Seven runs were made over the
course, but two of these were
thrown out on account of the break
ing of the electric signals. The aver
age of five high-speed runs was 22. 2(
knots and the highest speed attained
on a single run was 1S.TS knots.
The four-hour endurance run will
be made tomorrow, as several minor
repairs to the port engine will have
to be made today.

FULL OF WATER
PACIFIC MAIL LIXER ARRIVES
IN I"ORT WITH TWO GAPING j
HOLES IN HER BOTTOM. .
Engineers Had to Work in Water
Over Their Heads in Order to
Stop the Inlow of Water. 1
San Francisco, Oct. 10. With her
forward hold filled with water, the
big Pacific Mall liner Mongolia,
which went on the reef at Midway
Island September 15, arrived in the
harbor yesterday, after being obliged
to remain outside a day and a night
because of the heavy fog. When the
Mongolia left Honolulu she had two
gaping holes through her double bot
tom, and once the ship was under
way the hold began to fill rapidly.
The day following her departure
from Honolulu a corps of engineers,
under Chief William Chlsholm and
Assistant Engineer Bunkers, was
ordered to rig a pump In the hold.
They were obliged to work in water
which was at times over their heads
and with ropes around their waists.
At one time the steamer listed heav
ily to the port side and the officers
were uneasy for her safety.
The Mongolia went on the reef at
Midway Island at 10:27 o'clock on
the night of September 15th. The
captain had orders to land President
Wurd of the cable company on the
island, but. he also had orders not to
approach the liland at night. He
brought the .Mongolia to within four
teen miles of the island, the sea be
ing particularly smooth. Two native
boatmen started In a small boat to go
to the big steamer, and the captain,
wishing to save them a hard row,
ordered the anchor up and proceeded
slowly forward. Soundings were
constantly taken, but they did not
find bottom until the Mongolia had
actually struck the reef.
Three anchors were let go to hold
the steamer In place, but one after
another the lines parted and the
anchors were lost. Then the captain
ordered two seven-ton anchors low
ered and she held firm. Captain
Porter had as much of the cargo as
was possible moved aft In the hope
of raising the bow and pulling his
vessel off with her own engines. On
the second day the Japanese training
ship Anegawa arrived and offered
assistance. Lines were passed to the
stranded vessel, but an parted. The
Japanese vessel then gave up and
Seeing that In order to cave his
ship he must sacrifice something.
Captain Porter Jettisoned 1,300 tons
of cargo. The anchors and eighty
tons of chain were floated off on
small boats and the engines were
started. The Mongolia responded at
once and with a mighty Jerk came
off the rocks so suddenly that she ran
down the two small bouts, smashing
them to pieces.
The army transport Buford acted
as a convoy for the damaged vessel,
and the day after sue got away a
heavy gale came up which certainly
would have pounded her hull to
pieces had she been on the rocks at
