most attractive In the line as it was
composed entirely of Native Daughters.
To be sure there were girls in other
divisions, but they were handicapped
by close proximity to the men. The
division was headed by Marshal D. A.
Ryan, with George B. May, Miss Lu
cinda Hernandez and R. P. Doolan
aids. Following the Marine band rode
the grand officers Native Daughters
of the Golden West in carriages and
then marched Buena Vista Parlor,
headed by its drill corps — sixteen young
ladies dressed in blue suits trimmed
■with white braid, blue caps and white
collars, set oft with red ties. The girls
carried miniature muskets, which they
handled with the precision of veterans.

suits of the men were tastefully
trimmed with yellow silk sashes.
The band of the Twentieth Kansas
Regiment discoursed music for Golden

full ranks, the members wearing the
regalia of the order and carrying par

thirty of the Garden City's 'loveliest
buds, clustered In a six-horse coach,
brought up the rear of this division.
And right here it is in place to say that
those girls are Jusl as courageous as
they are pretty. Their hateful old
marshal sought to shame them Into
walking with their sisters by calling
them "tender feet" and other things.
but they just didn't care. It was
fearfully warm, the line of march long,
a reception of several hours' duration
was to follow tb" parade and the ball
at night would be a still further tax
upon their strength. They paid for
their carriage and they'd just bet the
other girls would wish they were rid
ing, too, before the parade was over.
The marshal expostulated, the girls
were determined and the boys In the
vicinity of the controversy cheered the
girls. Needless to add. they had their
own way — women always do — and no
fairer feature was seen to-day than
that bevy ot girls in white, laughing
and chattering as they rode along

Oakland and Stanford parlors, es
corted by Blanchard's band, marched
together at the head of the fourth di
vision, which was marshaled by T. A.
K. Fassett, assisted by W. E. O'Con
nor and Milton Besser. Both parlors
looked exceedingly handsome in their
white uniforms, as did Alameda par
lors, Sons and Daughters, that fol
lowed. Athens Parlor was dressed in
white, with straw hats and parasols.
Behind the Alamedans and Oakland
ers marcht-d El Dorado Parlor, escort
ing the ladies of Orinda Parlor. The
girls, all in white, and the boys in white
trousers and black coats, presented one
of the prettiest pictures of the day.
>l»t Tamalpala Parlor, of San Ra
faeHTts members jaunty In showy
white uniforms and having its own
band, closed this division.
Marshal T. A. Lane and Aids Frank
H. Mills and J. E. Hancock rode at the
head of the fifth division, Hincon band
and parlor in handsome white uniforms
marching at the head. Yerba Buena
Parlor and National Parlor and drum
corps, all showily clad and cordially
received, came next. The feature of
the division, however, was the fourth
division of the Naval Battalion.
N. G. C, in full uniform, escorting
Santa Cruz Parlor. Bay City, Niantic
and Eden parlors brought up the rear
of the division.
The sixth division, led by Marshal
John P. Donovan and Aids L. P. Pow
elsori and W. F. James, contained many
novel and attractive features. First
there was the Salinas band escorting
Santa Lucia Parlor of that city, one of
the finest looking corp3 In the entire
line. Following them were the Colum
bian and Hesperian parlors, many in
numbers and quite as attractive as the
others. Los Lomas Parlor, Native
Daughters, attracted much admiration
as they marched along in front of the
Redwood City Parlor and band. Al
catraz and Halcyon parlors were the
last of the division In line.
The seventh, division was marshaled
by George V. ' Bollinger, with W. J.
Hawkins as aid. Stockton Parlor No.
7, preceded by the Stockton band of
sixteen ' pieces, headed the division.
Frank Adams was marshal of the par
lor. About sixty men were in line,
drawing a float emblematic of mining
in the Sierras. The float was white,
trimmed with yellow and artificial pop
pies and mounted a large white plaster
bear. This was drawn by members of
the parlor. About the sides and ends
of the float were gilded picks, shovels
and gold pans. In the inclosure of the
rope drawing the exhibit were a large
black bear and a small white terrier.
These were led by boys and attracted
much attention. The members of the
parlor made a fine appearance in suits
of white duck with a dark hair line,
with white hats with black bands.
They wore white and gold neckties and
displayed badges of the same colors, on
■which was a large yellow celluloid "7."
The parlor yell was:
Stockton, Stockton Ib my heaven.
Stockton. Stockton, number soven.
Brooklyn Parlor No. 151, under com
mand of C. K. Townsend, was next
•with forty members. They appeared in
natty suits of white duck trousers and
red sashes with blue and white negli
ge shirts. They wore red ties and
white caps with red bands. The parlor
carried Japanese parasols of red, white
and blue crepe paper made especially
for the occasion.
Alcalde Parlor No. 154 had sixty
members in line. J. L. Watson was
marshal. The members wore genuine
Manila hats, forwarded by a member
of the order now fighting with the First
California Regiment. These had a band
of red white and blue ribbon.
South San i rancisco Parlor No. 157
appeared with thirty men and N. Hal
linan as marshal. TMeir dress was neg

and straw hats. Each carried a Japan

forty strong. Japanese parasols and
blue and gold badges were the decora
tions of the parlor.
The Menlo Cadets, under command of I
Lieutenant Sel escorted Menlo Par
lor. About forty cadets were in line
and the boys marched with the air of
veterans. F. P. Roach was marshal of
Menlo Parlor. The Menlo Natives num
bered twenty. They carried Japanese
sunshades and handsome yellow and
Precita Parlor No. 187 made a fine
appearance under the marshalship of
J.S. Earls. They were attired in white
duck trousers, neglige shirts, brown
belts and white caps with purple bands.
Japanese parasols added to the effect.
The parlor was headed by its own
drum corps of four men.
Marshall Parlor No. 202 of San Fran
cisco presented a most grotesque and
amusing appearance. A. Nicholls was
•marshal. This is the baby parlor of the
order and its members wore white poke
bonnets and had fair-sized girl dolls
pinned to their coats. Fifty members
were in line. An effort was made last
night to obtain real live infants for the
paraders to carry, but no mothers could
be found who would risk their children
with the festive sons. Japanese para
sols protected them from the sun. But
tons in the lapels of their coats bore
the words: "I am a warm baby."
The eighth division was made up al
most entirely of the local parlors.
Louis Sericano was marshal, with J.
M. Hanley and R. C. Kelly aids. Se
quoia band was at its head, followed
by Sequoia Parlor No. 160. With them
marched Fremont Parlor of Native
Daughters. A bear and national flag
were mounted on two bicycles each, as
was also their banner on wheels. J. 13.
Tyson was in command of the parlor,
which was. 100 strong. The members
wore white vests and caps and carried
Japanese parasols. Fremont Parlor of
Native Daughters numbered thirty-five
and made a pretty appearance in their
suits of white organdies. Miss May
Hawkins was marshal. Each carried
large fans with red, white and blue
San Jose Parlor No. 22 was represent
ed by fifty men, with EL EL Herring
ton marshal. They were dressed in
brown crash suits with red sash and
red ties and crash hats with red bands.
They also 'carried Japanese umbrellas.
The National Drum Corps of fifteen
was the next feature.
Palo Alto Parlor No. 82 of San Jose
made the best appearance of any of the
Native Sons parlors. Their dress was
tasty and most of the men were of
stately proportions. H. H. Briggs was
marshal. At the head of this parlor
was "Jack" Carroll in a neat little rig
drawn by two Shetlands. Beside him
were seated three little boys — "Jack"
Spring, Fen Massol and "Jack" McAl
lister. The rig was decorated in orange
and white. The boys were dressed In
the same colors and acted as standard
bearers. The parlor's banner was car
ried in the rig. The members wore
white duck trousers and coats, striped
Stanley shirts, orange ties and sashes,
white felt hato and white shoes.
Seventy members were in line.
Observatory Parlor No. 177 of San
Jose came next. W. A. Beaaley mar
shaled the fifty members in parade.
This parlor also made a good appear
ance. The attire was white duck
trousers, blue coats, white yachting
caps and outing shirts. Japanese para
sols were also carried. The parlor hod
the finest banner mount in the parade.
This was of the bicycle pattern and
silver placed and set off their fine ban
ner to advantage.
The last place in the line of march
was assigned to California Parlor,
Junior Order of Native Sons. About
twenty young men were in line, with
T. Thwaits as marshal. They wore
white duck trousers and hats and red,
white and blue neckties. These young
Natives carried bear parasols.

flnement which their presence gave to
the affair became the topic of conver
The invasion of the hotels, restau
rants ani refreshment booths after the
parade was a sight worth seeing. The
crush extended from the Hotel Yen
dome to the restaurants in the vicinity
of the Postoffice. Until away into the
afternoon all th 2 tables where food was
served were occupied and men and wo
men loitered around waiting for a
chance to sit down and eat. The pro
prietors of the restaurants did not an
ticipate the full extent of the demands
on the commissary department. Before
the army of visitors had been served all
the supplies on hand were exhausted.
Cooks, waiters and patrons had to be
patient under the circumstances. There
was no railing against the town by the
visitors as they could very well see that
the -rush was extraordinary and that
the residents were doing all that could
be done to feed the multitude.
It is creditable to the people of San
Jose that the venders of food did not
take advantage of the great demand to
double up on prices. Complaints of ex
tortion are seldom heard. Judge Wal
ter Levy came into contact with a
chicken that was hatched before any
of the Native Daughters were born, but
the price was not increased because the
poultry enjoyed pioneer distinction.
Among the candidates for office who
are on the ground surveying the field
with an eye to the condition of fences
is State Treasurer Will S. Green, the
nominee for that office on the fusion
ticket. He saw the parade from a good
point of view at the corner of Santa

SAN JOSE, Sept. 9.— The largest
crowd which haa attended a bicycle
meet here since the great cycle carni
val of 1895, packed the grand stand at
the baseball park this afternoon to see
the events conducted by the Garden
City Wheelmen in conjunction with the
Native Sons' celebration. Ten thousand
was the estimated attendance and the
infield of the ball ground had to accom
modate the overflow that could not find
seats in the stands.
The racing was of a high order and
furnished exciting sport and some big
surprises. A delegation of Olympic
wheelmen came down in the morning
to see their champion win, as they
hoped, the match race between him and
"Bunt" Smith of this city. They re
turned to-night disappointed and de
pleted in pocket, for Smith showed
Wing the way across the tape in two
successive heats. It was a decisive vic
tory and left no room for doubt ac to
which was the better man.
Wing defeated Smith in a match sev
eral months ago at Elmhurst and his
reversal of form to-day was a big dis
appointment to his followers. Smith
had trained faithfully for this one race
and was in the pink of condition. Be
sides winning the match race Smith
won his heat and third place in the
final of the two-thirds mile Bcratch.
Next to Smith, Georgre Fuller and E.
F. Ruse of the Olympics, and the Da
vidson brothers and Ivan Treadwell of
the Bay City Club, made the best show
ing of the meet. Fuller won the two
thirds, Walter Davidson taking second.
Davidson also won the mile handicap
in splendid style. Arthur Davidson
showed up strong in all the heats. Russ
won his heat in the mile handicap and
third place in the final. Treadwell took
second in the handicap.
The match race between Smith and
Wing was the event of the day, and
excited intense interest. It was run
in mile heats best two in three, tan
dem paced, flying start. Wing won
the toss for position in the first heat
and chose the outside. The tandem
was manned by E. O. JKragnes« (Olym
pic) and Judus Smith (Garden City).
Smith caught the tandem first as
they shot across the tape and was soon
tacked on snugly behind it, AVing close
ly following him. The first lap of one
third mile was run in :41 3-5. The time
was equally as fast on the second lap,
1:18 3-5. On the third lap the tandem
dropped out and the men finished to
gether. Wing could not make up the
lead that Smith had and the latter
crossed the tape ahead in a gruelling
finish. The time was lightning fast —
1:59 for one mile. \
After several heats of the other races
had been run, giving the contestants in
the match race a chance to rest, they
came out for the second heat. Smith
was again the first to catch the pace
makers. They rode the first third of a
mile in :42. As the tandem dropped out
on the last lap Smith sprinted to re
tain his lead, and, try as he would,
Wing could do no better than trail him
in to the tape, which Smith crossed In
2:04. winning the heat and the match.
He was given an ovation as he passed
the grand stands.
The racing opened with a two-thirds
of a mile scratch event, run in seven
heats. The starters in the first heat
were C. M. Smith, Garden City; E. T.
McNess, Bay City; Thomas Thurbet,
unattached, and P. H. Rosenheim, Re
liance. On the second lap all fell but
Smith, who came on alone and won in
1:313-5. Rosenheim remounted and
In the second heat were J. E. Wing,
Olympic; Fred Evans, Reliance; M. G.
Curtis, Encinal:- Gail Hardenbrook,
Garden City. Curtis set all the pace for
a lap and a half, when Wing took the
lead and won easily in 1:40.
E. F. Russ, Olympic; E. B. Wastie,
Garden City; Ivan Treadwell, Bay
City; G. W. Phillips, Tuba City; C. S.
Adams, Reliance, and Thomas H.
White, San Jose, started in the third.
Treadwell, Phillips and White went
down on the first lap. Russ won as he
pleased In 1:34 1-5, Wastie second.

a pretty contest between Deacon,
Smith, Francis and Bean, who finished
"neck and neck" together. The judges
gave first place to Francis and second
to Bean. Time, 1:36 2-5.
E. A. Bozio, Olympic; D. Arata and
