THE ANNUAL FETE.
Auspicious Opening of tlie
The Pavilion Filled With an
An Artistic Arrangement of Beautiful
The Various Features Described—The
Programme Last Evening—A
The sixth annual flower festival
opened last evening at Hazard's pavil
ion. In spite of the fact that only a
few hours before seeming chaos had pre
vailed throughout the building, when
the appointed time came every exhibit
was in place, the booths were all in per
fect form, the flower designs were com
pleted, and order reigned supreme.
There was no necessity for apologies for
things that were not yet completed, but
on the contrary, the management was
entitled to congratulations on the per
fect and auspicious beginning of the
\ r ery soon after the doors were opened
the clear space of the main floor and the
galleries _ was filled with a brilliant
crowd. It is estimated that from 3,000
to 4,000 people visited the festival in the
course of the evening. Expressions
of admiration and surprise were
heard on all sides, and the success of the
festival was in a short time made an
assured fact. It pannot be doubted
that it will continue to attract large
crowds throughout the week and that
the ladies who have labored with such
assiduity in its preparation will find
themselves amply repaid by the enthusi
astic praise of all visitors.
It is quite impossible for the visitor at
the festival to see and appreciate all its
beauties in one evening ; much less is it
possible to describe them in one article.
One may wander about by the hour and
study the scene from one point of view
after another and always find a horde of
new wonders to admire, Rather more
artistic skill has been exercised this
year than ever before in the creation of
an ensemble effect, which can, of course,
he best obtained by standing in the gal
lerynear the stage and looking back to
ward the entrance. The main booths
in the center are large, yet so arranged
as not to hide one another. They are all
of artistic design and the general effect
is such as to form a memorable scene.
In the center of the main floor stands
the Eiffel tower, a perfect model of the
famous Parisian edifice. It is 52 feet, 6
inches in height, extending to the ceil
ing. The base is 22 feet wide. The
platform, which is occupied by the
band, is 14' a feet above the floor and is
20 feet square. At the top is a huge
electric light, and, scattered among the
evergreen foliage with which the tower
is covered, are many incandescent lights'
of all colors. Around and above the
platform are friezes of cal la lilies. The
foundation columns are covered with
iong sprays of Banksia roses.'
At each side of the tower are huge
fountains 14 feet in height, with basins
10 feet in diameter. These, together
with the tower and many of the booths,
were designed by C. H. Brown, the
architect. They are covered with lilies
and ferns. On the opposite sides of the
tower from the fountains are the pyra
mids of roses, solid banks of rich color,
harmoniously arranged and relieved by
bands of moss. At each corner of the
main inside space are larger booths,
where the displays entered for premiums
are placed. Near the stage on the right
hand side is the booth where floral table
decorations are displayed. The design
shown last night was "by Mrs. Stillson
and Mrs. Flint. The table was set for
ten persons, and was artistically arranged
with smilax, ferns and roses. To the
left, near the stage, is the display of
potted plants, rare and beautiful speci
mens of hothouse culture. On the right
hand side, nearer the entrance, is the
booth containing the special display of
roses. There are a great many rare va
rieties, forming an interesting exhibit.
On the left-hand side is one of the pret
tiest booths in the festival—that of the
wild flowers. It is covered to the top
with long grasses and ferns, and within
there is a tine collection of yucca blos
soms, and of the natural field".flowers of
In the corner under the gallery, to the
right of the entrance, is the "hat and
coat stand, covered with palm leaves
and plants. Next to it, on the right
hand side, comes the newspaper booth,
the columns of which are festooned with
brilliant clusters of geranium blossoms.
Next is the lemonade booth, built in the
form of a large bird-cage, where a num
ber of young ladies, dressed in yellow to
represent canaries, serve the thirsty
a cool drink. The last booth on this
side is the '"purple" booth, a triangular
shaped edifice, its columns hung with
purple and white cloth and covered with
delicately harmonized color effects in
Near the entrance to tlie left is the
catalogue booth, roofed in with an um
brella-like covering of light bunting.
The first booth on the left-hand side of
the building, under the gallery, is the
boutonniere stand, white and green and
very artistically arranged. It is of dia
mond shape, and hangs out delicate
streamers of smilux. Next comes the
candy booth, rich and warm in color,
and striking in its effects on the eye.
The last booth toward the stage forms
a peculiar contrast to the one just men
tioned. It is the soda-water stand, and
is designed to represent a cool grotto.
Its colors are white and green, and the
young ladies who serve at the fountains
when they come forward to the counter
seem to emerge from a dark cavern, so
far does its flowery roof overhang.
All these booths are filled with sweet
faced young ladies in appropriate cos
tumes. The visitor is not solicited to
make purchases from them, but lie feels
that he has not treated himself
fairly if lie neglects to do so. The names
of the ladies who are devoting their time
to this good work were given in the
Hekald of yesterday.
The ice cream booth, which on former
occasions was placed in the center of the
gallery, has a much more roomy and
inviting situation this year on the right
hand side of the gallery. It is a wire
work structure, running nearly the
whole length of the side, and its parti
tion walls are tastefully decorated with
stars and other emblems of the I. O. G.
T., composed of geraniums upon a green
background, and it is presided over by
a bevy of charming members of
that order. On the opposite
side of the gallery is the
Woman's Exchange booth, where an in
teresting display of every variety of

fancy work is on exhibition. The large
space in the center has been turned into
a miniature art gallery, and a very in
teresting collection from all the local
studios has been arranged in an admir
able manner. Lack of space forbids a
detailed description of the various ex
hibits at this time, but taken as a
whole, it augurs well for the future of
art in Southern California, and it will
doubtless prove a surprise to many who
are unaware of the great strides that
have been taken of late years by local
At the bead of the stairway to the
left gallery, is a pyramid of wild flowers
in tiny pots, which consists of 225 varie
ties of local flora, gathered by two little
boys from Pasadena. It attracts a good
deal of attention.
The Opening Exercise*,
Shortly before 8 o'clock last night the
invited guests began to assemble upon
the platform. These consisted of .1 udges
of the Superior Courts, City Council
men, Board of Education, clergymen,
Brigadier-General B. H. Grierson and
stall', Hoard of Trade officials and offi
cers of the Chamber of Commerce. A
few minutes after the appointed hour
the gong rang and the exercises com
menced with an eloquent invocation by
Dr. J. Spencer Kennard. Owing, how
ever, to the continuous buzz of conver
sation, which was kept up in the rear
part of the hall, it was almost impossi
ble to hear the speaker beyond a radius
of a few feet from the platform. Mr. E.
A. Forrester then introduced the speaker
of the evening, Hon. H. T. Hazard,
Mayor of the city.
Mayor Hazard then delivered the fol
lowing address of welcome:
Ladies and Gentlemen — Agricul
tural fairs and exhibitions of the indus
tries of man are of great moment and
importance to the country in which
they are held, in that they" develop and
build up its resources; but these annual
flower festivals, conceived in a spirit of
love and charity, have a warmer and
more abiding spot in our hearts and
leave an impression on our memories
that will remain through the coming
years. There is something so pure and
chaste in the associations of flowers that
the "long ago" is inseparably inter
There is a beautiful isle up the river of time,
where the softest airs are playing;
There is a cloudless sky and tropical clinic,
And sonxs are sweet as a vesper chime,
And the Junes with the roses are staying;
And the name of the Isle is the lonir ago,
And we bury our treasures there:
There are bowers of beauty of bosoms'of snow,
And mountains of Sowers —and we love them so,
And trinkets, ami tresses of hair.
Flowers speak to us in a language not
born of man, but all the grander be
cause it is universal. It is known to all
humanity. In the rugged mountain
fastness, where are huge caverns, carved
by the unseen forces of nature, walled
about by great rocks, visited only by
the sun and rain, are planted the
omnipresent flowers! On the boundless
stretch of burning sands in the great
deserts "full many a flower is born to
blush unseen and waste its sweetness."
Everywhere the hand of nature has
planted in profusion an endless variety
of beautiful flowers for man's enjoy
ment. Some of these we have woven
into wreaths wherewith to adorn these
bowers of beauty and temples of
These annual flower festivals were
begotten, I repeat, in a spirit of love and
charity —love for the beautiful in nature
and charity for the unfortunate children
of men—by a society of noble, self-sacri
ficing women, who deserve, as they un
doubtedly have, the gratitude of the
people of Southern California and Los
Angeles in particular. They have and
are accomplishing untold good. Year
after year we find them working to :
gether in a noble cause. The orphan
has been provided for and the homeless
girl has not been forgotten. This year
their efforts are directed to the re
moval of the debt from the Y. M.
0. A. building which now encum
bers it. God speed them in their
good work. Tonight they present to
you this, their sixth annual flower
festival, in the hope that it, like its pre
decessors, may prove a welcome visitor
to Southern California, and when it is
an event of the past, they trust that it
may cany with it the conviction that it
lias not been outdone in usefulness by
those which have preceded it.
After the applause, with which this
address was greeted, had subsided, Mr.
E. A. Forrester, in a few words, apol
ogized for the non-appearance of Gover
nor R. W. Waterman, who had been ex
pected to respond; and formally declared
the festival open.

THE CABLE ROADS.
Prospect of Reorganization and Possible
It has been rumored for some time
I that changes were likely soon to come
' about in the management of the Los An
geles cable road. The return of J. F.
! Crank to the city, which took place a
lew days ago, was supposed to be pre
liminary to a general reorganization. A
| meeting of the board of directors will
| take place this morning. The
old board, which represents the
l.os Angeles Cable Railway Company,
j will pass out of existence, to be replaced
by the board which will represent the
! local management of the Pacific Railway
Company. Of this J. F. Crank will be
I president. It cannot be stated what
changes will be made in the general
| management, but the present employees
have, most of them, been given to un
| derstand that they will continue in
their places. Mr. Robinson was seen
Iby a reporter of this paper last evening,
j but he declined to say anything about
i the matter.
Not a Mackay Enterprise.
San Francisco, April 22.—Certain
rumors have recently been in circulation
to the effect that a powerful syndicate
is being formed to construct a competing
transcontinental road to be operated in
conjunction with one of the great East
ern railway systems. John W. Mackay,
the millionaire* was mentioned as one of
the leading spirits in the enterprise, but
when interrogated be said. "While it
may be true that a syndicate is being
formed for the purpose stated, I assure
you, positively, that I know absolutely
nothing concerning the matter. I have
all I can attend to with my mining,
telegraph and other interests, and have
no desire or intention to embark in new
enterprises. " A
Another Big Railroad Strike.
New York, April 22—The World
says a strike of the employees of the New-
York Central and Hudson River rail
road may be ordered in a few days, and
if so, 22,000 men on the Hudson river
division will quit work. The trouble is
alleged by the men to be due to the fact
that Voorhees, division superintendent,
has reduced the force, so that the men
who remain are overworked.
Fire in a Coal Mine.
Rock Si'iuxos, Wyo., April 22. —Fire
has been all day in progress in No. 4
mine, owned by the Union Pacific. It
is supposed to have been started by Chi
namen while cooking their meals. One
explosion has occurred, and several men
have been badly burned. It is believed
it will be necessary to flood the mine to
extinguish the lire. The mine is valued
at over a million dollars.

leg was drawn up and he could hardly walk. We
tried everything we could hear of, without suc
cess, until we began giving him Hood's Sar
saparilla. In Just a month, after he had taken
two-thirds of a bottle, the sores entirely healed,
his leg Is perfectly straight, and he
Can Walk as Well as F.vcr.
Hood's Sarsaparilla is the best medicine I ever
saw for scrofulous humor. It has done its work
more than satisfactorily." William Sakobbs,
