Opening of the Pretty
Carnival of the
QUEEN EMMA CROWNED.
Never Has There Been Such
Rejoicing in a City of
SUBJECTS SHOUT GREETINGS.
In the Parade, Plaza and the Pa
vilion Due Homage Is Shown
HEALDSBURG. Cal., May 16.— The
triumphal march of California's carnival
north from far Los Angeles reached Healds
burg this morning, and the era of revelry
here has begun. The city is thronged with
visitors already. The perfume of roses,
and the throb of music is in the air, and
the rich colors of the festival, blue and
gold, are everywhere.
It has been a notable day in Healdsburg.
She dressed herself up and laid her plans
for a carnival that will take its place in the
front rank of the splendid procession ol
holiday affairs the spring has inaugurated.
She invited the good people of the State to
come and join in her merry-making, and
they are arriving by every train that enters
the city, and when they depart it will be
to spread the glory of Healdsburg. With
her beautiful plaza in the very heart of
the city she is peculiarly equipped for a
carnival which all may view and take part
in to the very best advantage.
When jocund day stood tiptoe on the
misty mountain top to the east eager to
catch the first glimpse of the holiday city
this morning he was saluted with the
flutter of a thousand banners and the
blare of trumpets. The cify was ready;
her gay clothes were nicely adjusted and
her head was up in the air with her bright
anticipations. Already the holiday-maker
was abroad and his number increased with
the passing moments.
The Queen had chosen one of the first
morning hours in which to take charge of
things, for these carnival queens are gay
and capricious, and pick their own time
for releasing the festival spirit, sometimes
coming: in the night and again when the
day is fading, and again, as it were, they
come with the young day himself. It was
11 o'clock when she made her public ap
pearance from the royal residence on
A c; valcade of mounted knights, dressed
in the splendor of the sixteenth-century
knight, from this city, and another troop
from Alexander Valley, escorted her to
her throne in the plaza. The Sotoyonie
band led the procession with City Marshal
Leard. who had command, and then came
the gallant knights escorting the Queen.
The royal carriage was the first of a long
line. It was richly and tastefully dressed.
In the carriage with Queen Enijna Meiler
were her first maids of honor. Misses Maud
and Annie McLean, and the pretty little
crown-hearer. Miss Nina Luce. In the
grand carriage were the other maids, Miss
Lenoxa Redding and Miss Alice Haigh.
Following these were other carriages in
which were the retinue of ladies and
gentlemen. The procession moved through
the principal streets to the plaza, which
•was now crowded with the merry-ma King
In the center of the plaza is a tower,
halfway up which a wide platform had
been erected, and on this the throne was
in plain view of every eye. The tower and
Btage and throne were completely buried"
. in green things, making a striking, beau
tiful point about which the festivities
' . naight swing.
The procession moved entirely around
the pla.za and then stopped at the main
entrance. The two silver-clad knights who
rode beside the royal carriage assisted
the Queen and her ladies to alight and led
them to the plaza gates, where Mayor
Young, Rev. R. Messenger, chairman of
the reception committee, and Edward
Norton and Dr. J. R. Swisher met them.
Two little r a ses, Willie White and Joe
Miller, led vhc way, and just behind them
little Lena Luce carried the silken cushion
upon which^the Queen must kneel to re
ceive ber crown. They ascended the steps
to the throne and then the populace gave
its first united and royal greeting to the
Rev. Mr. Messenger questioned the
Queen as to her purpose in her rule, if it
was good, and the Queen removed all doubts
by her frank answers. She kneeled upon
the cushion and Dr. Swisher placed the
golden crown upon the dark hair, where
it seemed to fit well and properly, as
though the one had long been designed for
the other. She rose up and took her place
on the throne, and the maids of honor
ranged themselves about her and again the
people shouted their greeting.
Mayor Young realized the folly of re
ei>ting—in fact had no notion of so doing.
He handed over the keys of the city with
a very handsome little speech. He said:
"Most gracious Majesty, it is not through
accident of birth, nor as an incidentof war,
nor by the caprice of fortune that you
wear your quoenly crown and wield your
royal scepter, but by the willing suffrages
of your grateful subjects. All their power
is epitomized in you, and your enthrone
ment is the realization and'climax of their
"In their name, as an expression of their
admiration and fealty to your person and
throne, I have the honor and pleasure to
welcome your advent and to beseech you
graciously to preside over their floral festi
val and command its exercises. This is
your royal prerogative and I pray you will
exercise it. Certainly nothing could be
more appropriate than that she who has
been selected because of her grace and
beauty should rule in Flora's realm, where
all Is beauty. These flowers, whose tints
no painter's brush can imitate and whose
modesty is not feigned nor forced, are
angels' thoughts materialized. They speak
with a power and pathos that no one can
resist ; theirs is the language of symbolism,
heaven's form of speech, and ours before
man's descent from primal innocence.
!That symbolism is still preserved in myth
The San Francisco Call.
and fable. It speaks to all ages and to all
races in rhythmic tongue that never varies
with shades of distinction, that are ever
new, every syllable a volume of wisdom
B'-By their beauty these flowers express
the tender loving thoughts of your subjects
for their Queen, and by their fragrance is
symbolized their gratitude for your royal
presence and favor. We assure your
Majesty that the devotion of your subjects
for their Queen is only surpassed by your
benignity and fidelity to their interests.
We await the pleasure of your Majesty."
The Queen's proclamation, calling upon
all her loyal subjects to be true to the
spirit of the carnival, to enjoy themselves
to the limit, to cease from worry and to
entertain their visitors, was read by E. M.
Norton, and then the band saluted the
new ruler with "God Save the Queen," and
the people hailed her again with another
great cheer, which was repeated arid con
tinued as she descended among then
again to take her place in the royal car-
riage with her maids and retinue, and once
more drove around the plaza smiling and
bowing graciously to their greetings.
The Queen is a strikingly handsome
brunette, with lustrous brown eyes and
graceful figure. She was magnificently
gowned in a rich robe of white brocade
satin en train. Its trimmings were of gold
passementeries. In the coils of her wealth
of dark hair nestled dainty rosebuds of
pure white. White kid slippers and gloves
completed a toilet of rare beauty. Her
two principal maids of honor, Miss Maud
Hall and Miss Annie McLean, whose
blonde beaut y served to heighten by con
trast both their own and that of the Queen,
were gowned alike in blue silk and whito
flowers were twined in their hair. The
other two maids of honor, Miss Leonora
Redding and Miss Alice Haigh— the for
mer a brunette and the latter a blonde —
wore dainty carnations of canary silk, and
in their hair there blossomed a cluster of
Miss Nina Luce, the pretty little crown
bearer, was a picture of grace and beauty
in the perfect whiteness of ncr gown of silk.
The royal pages, Masters Joe Miller and
Frankie White, were clad • appropriately
with the festival colors of blue and
To-night the city is ablaze with electric
lights. Hundreds of yards of wire have
been strung through the plaza, centering
at the top of the high tower and extending
to the limits in every direction, so that
this part of the city is like a great dazzling
star, the light of which rivals that of the
sun. The Sotoyome band sits in the tower
busily spreading the doctrine of festivity
as only music can. The people are abroad
in crowds, although the evening pro
gramme is being carried through at the
pavilion, where the Queen and her retinue
sit in their splendor. The pavilion is ar
rayed in holiday attire from the doors to
its very extremity.
The Queen and her party made their en
try shortly after 8 o'clock in the same or
der as she ascended her throne in the
morning. She was greeted on behalf of
the city by Miss Camellia Provines m a
brief and pretty speech. She then took
the place provided for herself and retinue
to the right of the stage, and the regular
programme of the evening, consisting of
music, recitations and a drill of the chil
dren, was successfully carried out.
The pavilion was packed to the doors
with a carnival crowd. This has all been
preliminary, merely getting the wheels of
the festival in easy working order, for to
morrow is the great day. The flowers will

bloom to-morrow; the big tower in the
park, which is now a mass of green, will
to-morrow be a mass of flowers. The pa
vilion also will put on floral robes in a
profusion that will pale the show to-day.
The great procession is to start at 11
o'clock. Floats from all the surrounding
cities and towns will be in the line. Santa
Rosa's militia, a regiment of wheelmen
and the fire department will form con-,
spicuous features together. A band of.
Sotoyome Indians, under Chief Charley,
will, also appear. In the afternoon there
will be a tournament of knights with their
lances, a tug-of-wai 1 and Indian pony races,
and in the evening a concert. The base
ball game this afternoon between the
clubs of Healdsburg and Forestville at
tracted quite a crowd, but was very one
sided, the sec re being 29 to 4 in favor of
the home team. The Forestville boys
seemed unable to find Bond's delivery,
while Rickett of the Forestville seemed to
be an easy mark.
THE GUARDIAN IS ANGRY
Photographer Monaco Says
That Mrs. Braghetta Is
He Was Not Cruel and bid Not De
sire to Wed His Ward for Her
STOCKTON, Cal., May 16.—Photog
rapher Monaco, the erstwhile guardian of
Miss Giocondia Fugazzi, who eloped from
Stockton on the noon train last Tuesday
and was married to young Mr. Braghetta
on the high seas yesterday, is wroth. The*
young couple returned here this morning
and Mrs. Braghetta has not even called
upon her guardian. He is not angry about
that, however, but about an item which
was published to the effect that he was a
cruel guardian and was looking for the
young lady's hand himself in vie.w of the
fact that she was supposed to be pos
sessed of a goodly portion of this world's
goods. Mr. Monaco says he never thought
of such a thing as marrying the girl and.
that she has not a cent in the world, his
bond as her guardian having only been
in the nominal sum of $100. On her birth
day he presented her with a diamond ring
and later with a new dresa. That such stories
should be circulated about him makes Mr.
Monaco very angry and 'he says he will pay
$100 to any one who will show him Mrs.
Braghetta's signature affixed to any such
