HEALDSBURG; Cal., May 17.—Healds
burg has reached up ana placed a stand
ard on the heights of her history. For her
great day is already in history. Her fu
ture will not look up to this flag to be sure,
for Healdsburg never goes back— a height
once attained is made secure — but the flag
will mark- : what*, a ' greater step may be
taken under the influence of enthusiasm
« and united effort. ■■ .
: Some weeks ago the people of this little
city undertook to give a floral show and
festival for her. own entertainment. Some
one suggested a little elaboration. It was
done. Another, suggested a further widen
ing of the plan, and day by day the scheme
■developed, the momentum growing with
each move until some public spirited citi
zen thr^w back his shoulders, took off his
<tiat and Inquired:
"What's the matter with Healdsbure?"
There was a sudden chorus, united in
the expression that "she's all right."
"Gentlemen," said the public-spirited
citizen, pointing on the map toward Santa
Barbara and Los Angeles and Santa Rosa,
"this festival of ours has got going, and we
cannot stop it until it has ridden into line
with the?e others."
And the saying has come true. The
features of to-day's demonstration were
sufficiently distinctive to have invited the
enthusiastic attention of even those who
have seen all the others, and the crowds
that came by the regular and the special
excursion trains from north and south and
who have trooped into the city by every
road leading this way, and in every style
of vehicle, are loud in their praise of
Healdsburg and her carnival, and will go
away to tell the stay-at-homes what fun
The day was perfect, the sky unflecked
by a cloud, but the sun's straight rays were
tempered to entire comfort by a cooling
AU ttie morning honra were enlivened
with that bustle of preparation that goes
before a pageant, the dashing abreast of
men on horseback, the tat-tat-tat of drums,
the far-sounding call of bugles, the move
ment through the streets of detachments
of the parade, the tramp and the slow el
bowing of the good-natured mass on the
streets.- - , ;■.';■ ; -'. **; ' : :: ; : -■■■'-■ : '
The procession formed in the streets
west of the park and very shortly after the
hour set the word was given, and it moved
away westward, winding through the prin
cipal streets and then returning to the
plaza. Sightseers had found favored
points all along the route to view the
parade, but the peculiar advantages of the
plaza, where the cavalcade could be seen
for a' quarter of a mile of its length as it
traversed wide streets, attracted the great
mass there and not less than 5000 people
packed the sidewalks and looked from the
windows and porches and awnings, or
stood upon the housetops fronting the
The procession was over amilein length,
and this despite the fact that many of the
floats anticipated as coming from neigh
boring cities did not arrive. Geyserville
was the only place outside of Healdsburg
that was represented in the line, but she
did herself proud. She was given almost
the right of line, with a neat little donkey
But to follow the line in its order: The
Queen, of course, came first, led, to be
cure, by the marshal and his men, the
Sotoyome band— a prize-taking organiza
tion—the armored knights with their
lances and plumes and the glitter of bur
nished silver and steel. They were the
Queen's guard of honor — and then the
Queen's float. It was an immense and sub
stantial affair, covered completely with
green things and flowers, except the
canopy which stretched above the throne
at the top. Her four maids of honor oc
cupied places about her on the steps lead
ing to her high position. The float was
drawn by four white and plumed horses.
Surrounded by her mail-claid knights,
and followed by a long troop of other
knights and ladies, arrayed in bright cos
tumes, the Queen and her following made
ft very imposing spectacle.
' Jost behind this inspiriting array, as
though to present the contrast of the old,
dull order of things with the new and gay
days of spring revelry, came the City Coun
cil and invited guests in some every-day
ipa-mages. : .
.■■■.•';• In sharp contrast again came the flowers
on wheels, led by a beautiful conceit in
sunflowers. The canopy of a surrey was
an immense sunflower. Two black horses
were harnessed in yellow, and the rig
trimmed in small yellow flowers, while the
lour fair occupants wore so many yellow
sunflowers. They were Miss Harriet Se
. well, Miss Edna Biddle, Miss Edith Sar
ginson and Miss Nora Terry.
; Mrs.. Dr. Swisher of Healdsburg and Miss
Byington of Santa Rosa rode in a low
-•'.-seated-,, four-wheeled rig that was entirely
! covered with roses.
Now came, the Geyserville contingent,
Jed by another gallant company of knights
■ *nd ladies.'. • .
Back of them came a float done up in
white, with a dozen pretty little girls in
white winding a Maypole. The float was
drawn by*-four white horses with white
harness. . .
George Remmel and wife followed in a
tandem, the rig in yeliow and lavishly
decorated in wild sunflowers. Two foot
men in white led the horses. ■
Now came the- Geyserville Bicycle Club,

C. Miller followed the riders on. a high
wheeled sulky, the wheels of which were
twisted with festival ribbons.
E. 0. Goodrich rode in a carriage smoth
ered in flowers, while at the end of this
division was Joe McMirin's clever float,
covered with greens, and in which was a
small orchard of cherry trees, with four
summer girls stripping the luscious fruit
from the branches and tossing it into the
crowds on the sidewalk. Of coulee, the
fruit remained on; the trees, really, arid
what was thrown to the crowd was drawn
from a seemingly exhaustless reservoir.
On the side of the float, done in flowers,
was the legend, "Heart's Desire," which
is probably the name of Joe's cherry.
Healdsburg came into the line again
with a pretiy tandem in yellow, with an
immense sunshade. C. Soberanus was

decorated rig. With her was Mrs. Young

Now came the most spectacular single
turnout in the line. Mrs. Anita de Fitch
Grant, dressed in a flowing robe of pink,
with an immense white straw hat trimmed
with pink flowers, was seated in a low four
wheeled rig that was entirely covered with
pink flowers. She was half-buried in roses.
She drove four white horses harnessed in
pink and decorated with flowerß.
Mrs. H. Hamilton^ with three lady
friends, drove a two-horse rig done up in
white and pink. • .
Mrs, Austin and Mrs. Buckley and the
Misses Milter, two in black and two in
bright red, in a two-seated rig dressed in
red and carrying sunshades, made a very
effective turnout. . .
Here the Windsor band broke the line of
floral carriages and added the inspiration
of its music.
Company E of the National Guard, from
Santa Rosa, acted as an escort to the next
division, composed of the fire department.
Little Grade Vail sat up in a bower of
flowers and under a floral bell on the
chemical engine, and little Baby Stussy
swung amid ferns and flowers over the
hook and ladder. \
The Ha?el wood Kindergarten— a score of
little children— Were made comfortable in
an ample floral boat with spreading sails.
A float prepared by the Italian colony
represented King Ferdinand and his cap
ture of a number of black pirates. The
King stood on a pedestal so high that he
was compelled to hook the wires swung
across the streets for the Chinese lanterns
and lift them over his head as they rode
along. The pirates, although wearing
heavy chains, were made much more com
fortable lower down.

It presented two pictures. One labeled
"New England" presented a miniature cot

a liberal spreading of white cotton serving
for the snow. The figure of a man was
half buried in the snow. The other was
labeled "California," and presented the
bower of ferns and fruits and flowers, in
which the smiling child is taking her ease.
The float was applauded all along the line.
■ A. A. : Burlingame drove a four-wheeled
rig trimmed with ro§es and pinks. Riding
with him was Miss Baker.

flowers and appeared in heliotrope rig and

sion. . . ;
Mrs. Austin's float was the cottage home,
windmill and a complete equipment for
housekeeping, all built of roses, except the
windmill. G. W>. Michael shared the
credit of the float. Charley and Hazel \

while Annie Peters and Emile Austin sat
within the house throwing flowers from its
windows. This very properly took the
first prize for flqats.

driven by John and J. A. Flack. Miss A.
M. Flack and Miss Lena Calhoun rode with
them in holiday colors.
Mrs. J. T. Coffinan and Miss M. Swain
drove a phaeton elaborately trimmed in
roses. ... ' •
A float that must have given the judges
some bother in deciding against it for first
prize was .an immense floral shoe,. with the
old lady who lives in it there with her
children— a whole bevy of them. It was
very pretty. It was designed and executed
by Miss Isaacs, who lives out of Healdsburg
a little way and brought this beauty to
town with her this morning, taking it com
pletely by surprise. There was nothing
prettier in the parade. Miss Isaacs sat up
in the heel of the big shoe herself, repre
senting the famous old lady.
Another attractive float was in the form
of an open platform, upon which some
merrymaking lads and lassies — Borne of
the fairest of Healdsburg's fair maids
were raking the meadow sweet with hay.
The ladies were Misses Mamie Livernash,
Zoe Bates and Annie Games.
. One of the features that provoked laugh
ter and applause along the line was the
toy turnout of little Baby Capell, driving
two little lapdogs in harness, under an
umbrella of roses.
The procession circled the plaza, moved
east about the distance of its length, re
turned to the plaza and moved in review
before the Queen, whose car took its sta
tion there, and then the long line disinte
grated. The sun had crossed the zenith
long before this, and the afternoon was
. The judges to say whose turnout should
carry away the prizes were : R. H. War
field of San Francisco, W. J. Hotchkiss of
Healdsburg, J. W. Oates of Santa Ro3a
and Colonel j. 8. Young of San Francisco.
The awards were as follows:
Best surrey— Miss Harrietta Seawell.
Best phaeton— Mrs. Anita de Fitch Grant.
Best buggy— Mrs. Eli Bush.
Best cart— Mrs. George Remmel.
Best float— Mrs. Charles Austin.
■ Best farm wagon— Mr. Joseph McMinn.
Best lady equestrienne— Miss Stella Haigh.
Best lady bicyclist— Miss Lola Bond.
Dog wagon— Little Kathleen Swisher.
The award for the best decorated busi
ness house was given to the Union Hotel.
At 3 o'clock the knights, in their
gorgeous trappings, assembled on the
Center-street side of the plaza for the tilt-
ing tournament. A large crowd was
attracted and held by the dashing ex
hibition of riding until the finish. Four
of the knights were from Alexander Valley
and four from Healdsburg. The contest
was an individual one, but a lively spirit
of rivalry between the two corps added
much to the interest of the contest. Three
little rings were to be caught on each ride,
and in a stretch of 150 yards, riding at full
speed, the rings suspended from scaffolds
erected at even'distances, and at a height a
little above the horseman's eye.

Frank. Sinclair of the valley, it will be
seen, won the first prize of $40, and Patter
son and McPherson, of the valley and
Haigh of Healdsburg tied for the second.
While all this was going on, a pretty
feature of the festival was attracting no
little attention at the theater, also on* Cen
ter street. It was the baby show, in which
fourteen little buds were bidding for popu
lar approval. They were Babies Gully,
Galloway, Kelly, Dah, Johns, Hoadley,
Phillips, Ferguson, Alexander, Rogers,
Ormsby, Anderson, Field and Hickok.
After a spirited and profitable contest— for
it cost money to vote as an evidence of
good faith— little Irene Kelly carried off
first prize in the less-than-one-year class
and Beth Martihue Galloway took another
in the two-year-old class.
To-night the city is in the full flood of
its hilarity. The plaza is brilliantly
illuminated and crowds throng the streets,
for the trains did not carry away as many
people as they brought by any means. The
Sotoyome band is rendering an open-air
concert in the plaza, while the Midwinter
Fair Quintet— Charles A. Prince, pianist;
F. K. Tobin, trombone; Will E. Bates,
cornet; George McNeill, clarionet; Isadora
Fenster, violin— assisted by Miss Helen
Smith, the whistler, is entertaining a big
crown in the pavilion. A moonlight picnic
is being held at the Healdsburg grove, a
short distance out of town. •
To-morrow will be a day of sport —
bicycle, foot, sack and Indian horse racing
in the morning, a chorus of 100 children in
the afternoon and in the evening a concert.

ROMANCE OF SAN JOSE
Frank Maestos in Court for
Abducting Pretty Mariana
Disastrous Blaze Caused by a Lamp
Explosion— Henry Lapier Ar
rested for Thievery.
SAN JOSE, Cal., May 17. — Justice
Dwyer's court was well filled with Portu
guese this afternoon, attracted by the pre
liminary examination of Frank Maestos
on a charge of abducting Mariana Rapoza.
The complaint was issued at the instance
of the girl's father, Manuel Rapoza, who
accused Maestos of abducting his 17-year?
old daughter, Mariana, with the hope that
her and Joe Silva. a farmhand employed
by Maestos, would fall in love with each
other and get married.
A large number of witnesses testified
that Mariana was at Maestos' place of her
own free will, and an equally large number
was positively sure that she had been ab
ducted. As the evidence was not sufficient
to hold Maestos, Justice Dwyer dismissed
the charge. . . ;>
... After the examination was over Mariana
refused to go home with , her parents, and
it looked as though there would be a fight
between the different ; factions. Joe Silva
insisted that ) the Judge marry, he and
Mariana at once, but as the girl was not of
age, and no license had been secured, the
request was not .complied with, ; and
Mariana left the. courtroom, in tears with
Maestos' family./. V---* : ' : :._•■,.■

SEATTLE, Wash., May 17.— The dis
pute between the Boards of Health and
Education in regard to the closing of the
•Rainier and South schools as a precaution
against scarlet fever reached a crisis this
morning. . .
Acting under orders from the health
board, Health Officer Palmer and Officer
Corning ordered the closing of the two
schools. Principal Gerard of the former
school refused compliance, and told the
pupils to enter. A wild scene followed,
the 400 or 500 children entering at doors
and windows, some 0% them throwing
stones at the officers and getting out tho
hose to give them a bath. The officers
vainly strove to intercept them, and it wa»
not until noon that order was restored by
the arre&t of Mr. Gerard and the removal
of the children from the building;
No less exciting scenes occurred at the
South School, Principal Taylor being ar
rested for resistance to the order. The
school board afterward ordered the two
schools closed under protest until the
