The Native Son, whoever he is, as an in
dividual owns the city. All local ordi
nances have been suspended by the three
days' ruler. State law don't count and it
is just as well for the Federal Government
that it has no ciairus to advance at present.
The State Capitol is merely the headquar
ters of so many visiting parlors. The
Mayor's office is the press headquarters
and it is stocked with malt and bourbon
beverages and other things on which news
paper writers are supposed to Jive. The
ex-Mayor called there this morning and
knocked at the door. He was told to call
again on Wednesday.
Everything is run by the visitors and
Sacramento was never better governed than
it is to-day. The constitution is "Hurrah
for the Native Son?," and ali the law is
"Be hospitable." There is as much free
dnm as could be found anywhere on eartn
ana not an instance of violation of the
hospitality has yet been recorded. It was
a pretty compliment to the guests that the
trustees hit upon when they ordered that
no policemen should appear in uniform,
and there is no need of uniforms or police.
The boys of California have gathered
again at the Cradle City of their State.
They are celebrating in as royal a style as
the people of Sacramento are receiving
them, but beneath all the enthusiasm is a
deep sincerity in honoring the memory of
the pioneers, and pride and patriotism
holds in check the tendencs- to celebration
tJ?Pt might be expected to go to an ex
treme. Art has been called upon to dec
orate the city into a gorgeous home of the
natives, and artistic features predominate
everywhere, but Slitter's Foit and Sutter's
mill at Coloma and other historic scenes
are depictured in preference to anything
This day, Sunday, has been quiet for
such an occasion. Several thousand of the
visitors spent the afternoon at the restored
fort, where the modern California was
built, and almost in reverence they listened
to the sacred music rendered by Ronco
vieri's band. This evening there was a
repetition of the scene in the State House
grounds, where the pines of the far Rimi
layas grow by the side of the sturdy native
redwoods, and California could not have
asked for better homage from its sons.
There could be no better proof of the char
acter of a class of young men than their be
havior when a whole city is placed com
pletely under their control.
Every organization in the order was re
ceiving its friends to-day at some special,
commodious headquarters, and even'
gues^of the Native Sons was provided for
in the most generous manner. Of course
the hotels could never have accommodated
the visitors that almost double the popu
lation, but the citizens have thrown open
their homes, and only those who come late
in the night rind any difficulty in obtain
ing excellent accommodations. Last night
the people did not seem inclined to go to
bed at all they were so eager to receive the
new arrivals, and to-day there is no recog
nition of the presence of Sunday. Stores
are open and business is going on as
usual— rather livelier than usual, so as not
to cause any inconvenience. There is no
restriction of any kind to-day in the deco
rated Cradle City. The press headquar
ters at the Mayor's office has all day
been one of the liveliest and best places of
the city. Editor J. N. Larkin of the Sun
day Leader is in charge, and with him is
Dr. J. S. Curtis, who supplies all sorts of
historical information about Sacramento
County, the Native Sons and the State.
The "New Sacramento." as everybody and
every newspaper expresses it, is doing a
wonderful work of entertainment, but in
this it is the same old Sacramento.
There has been little to-day in the way
of celebration except the grand concert at
Sutters Fort by Roncovieri's band in the
afternoon, and the evening concert at the
Capitol grounds. Thousands of people vis
ited the historic old fortification in the
afternoon and strolled through every nook
and corner ot the place. The fort is now
marked according to the use to which the
various sections were put in the days of
old— the days before the gold. Going to
the right front, the main entrance, the
visitors went through the stores and apart
ments of C. C. Pichetts, miners' supplies;
Hensley, Redding & Co., miners' supplies;
Priest, "Lee & Co., miners' supplies; the
toolbouse, the distillery, the northwest
bastion, the wagon-repair shop. Carey's
boarding-house, the granary, the black
smith shop, the fort headquarters, the
body-guard rooms, General Sutler's apart
ments, the office of the fort, White's bil
liard-room, tne storehouse. Peter Slater's
saloon, the southeast bastion, the imi
giant's building, and the central building,
that is now used as a museum.
When the fort was dedicated— two years
ago last April— the museum was of exceed
ing interest to the Pioneers and the Native
irons. There were relics of General Sutter
and of Marshall, the gold discoverer, that
brought the beholder back to the pioneer
times almost in spirit as well as in his
torical record, but the relics were loaned
to the proprietors of the Forty-nine Mining
Camp at the Midwinter Fair. From Han
Francisco they were taken to Chicago, it is
supposed, without permission, and nobody

seems to know what has since become of ;
them. The relics were given in trust to J
the men in charge of the restored fort, and i
there were many inquiries about them this
afternoon. It is quite probable from the j
statements made that some of the influ- ;
ential members of the Order of the Native
Sons will cause an inquiry to be made with j
a view to prosecuting the men who failed
to return the relics.
At the door of General Sutter's room in
the fort Henry C. Martin of San Francisco,
the pride of the order, met Jack Scroggs
of Sacramento Parlor.
"How much do you weigh?" asked
"I weigh more than you do," said Mar
"I'll bet you don't."
"I'll bet I do."
"How much do you weigh, Martin? 1 '
"Three hundred and forty. And you?"
There was a jovial laugh from the two
solid men who will together weigh 800
pounds by the next celebration; and then
Senator Bert, the thinnest man in the
order, interjected: "Well, you're a pretty
"Where is your badge, Mr. Martin?"
asked a Sacramento young lady.
"My badge? I haven't any," said the
"Well, you have lots of room for one,"
remarked the girl.
And so the famous treasurer continued
to supply the native sons and daughters
The evening scene was at the Capitol
grounds, where a sacred concert was given
from Bto 10:30 o'clock. It was estimated
that, from 5000 to 10,000 persons were
present, and it is doubtful whether the
park will be more popular even to-morrow
night, when the big building and all the
trees will be covered with the electric
lights. Aside from the concert, the even
ing was without incident, and the city is
getting ready for the great events of to
The Native Daughters have already
taken a prominent Dart in the celebration
as an organization. They had charge of
the reception at Sutter's Fort, and several
important social events have been con
ducted by them.
California Parlor has presented to Sacra
mento Parlor of the Native Sons a banner,
the materials of which cost. $500. That
banner will be one of the features of to
morrow's parade. It is of silk and gold,
and is adorned by representations of Sut
ter's Fort, a grizzly bear and other familiar
emblems of the Natives. The banner was
presented by Mrs. C. N. Post of California
Parlor and accepted by E. J. Weidon, pres
ident of the Sacramento Parlor.
It is stated by the police to-night that a
lot of crooks have arrived, and several cases
of pocket-picking have been reported. A
purse containing $15 2.3 was stolen from
Miss Recting of San Francisco.

SACRAMENTO, Cal., Sept. B.— The
various headquarters of the Native Sons'
parlors throughout the city are a scene of
constant activity and excitement and their
decorations are beautiful beyond descrip

rank and tile are the headquarters of Stan

the main entrance materially assist in re

As the visitor crosses the threshold a
blaze of electric lights greets him softened
by cardinal-colored shades that add addi
tional beauty to the interior. In the ex
treme end of the hall is a representative of
a sunburst from the clouds. This consists
of a draping in the form of half a golden
globe of mammoth dimensions rising
above a dark background, with golden
rays shooting upward and outward, and is
a solid flame of incandcscents consisting of
232 lights. In the center of the hall is a

B AJT IHEGO'S CELEBRATION.
The Festivities of Admission Day Already
SAN DIEGO, Cal., Sept. B.— The Native
Sons' celebration of Admission Day really
began here yesterday, when an excursion
of 1500 people arrived from Los Angeles
and interior points, followed by 2000 more
to-night. The city is covered n*ith decora
tions and lights, the center being a grand
triumphal arch at D and Fourth streets,
covered with electric lights.
Soon after dark the carnival began, and
the streets all night were filled with
masked merry-maker?. The light under

HOUGHTON, Mich., Sept. 8.-It is now
positively known that thirty-five men are
entombed in the Osceola mine, and their
bodies cannot be recovered until the fire
is entirely extinguished, which may not
be for months. It is the opinion of some
of the oldest officials of the mine that the
fire was the work of an incendiary.
The saddest feature or the disaster is
that all of the doomed men might have
escaped had they heeded the warnings of
Captain Edwards, who was the first person
to detect the existence of fire. He dis
patched messengers to every slope where
miners were known to be working, but as
the mine is not heavily timbered except
in the shafts the idea of serious danger
was scouted. By going a round-about way
the last men who were in the lower level
of No. 4 shaft might have escaped, but
they preferred a shorter route of ascent,
and when they got up to the eighteenth
level found themselves cut off. Some
passed into latter drifts expecting to reach
Captain White descended with Anton
Secysik, who said he had left his father in
the level, but Secysik lost his head and
finding him unmanageable, White aban
doned him to his fate and reached the sur
face in safety. He was the only one of the
party in No. 4 shaft to escape. He reported
that trimmers had offerred to carry one of
the drill boys to the surface, but the boy
was so frightened that he refused to move
and was left to perish.
Additional names of missing men are:
A. Wmzia, Andrew Ross, Stephen Byth
bere, Joseph Slutta, Isaac Harvey.
Two Austrian trimmers, names un
known, are missing. Twenty of the thirty
five are married men and most of them
have large families.
The openine at the surface of the burn
ing shaft of the mine has been rendered
airtight by a covering of heavy timber
covered with securely packed dirt. The
next shaft north has been similarly cov
ered and the smoke from the burning
timber in No. 4 shaft and the drifts adjoin
ing is now rolling out in dense volumes
from No. 4 shaft, several hundred feet to
the south. Owing to the sealing of No. 3
shaft, it is impossible to judge whether the
fire is making headway or abating.
The only precedents from which the
probable direction of the fire can be
guessed are supplied by the three big fires
which have ravaged the Calumet and
