fornia into the Union has
been cne of the grandest that
our State of California has ever
seen, and it will till a page in the

Of course, I cannot omit saying
that the rarade was one of the
most striking features of the whole

is due to all who helped to make

ALL the payety and good humor
and g-ood fellowship of the
great celebration was focused
in Mechanics' Pavilion last
night, and the grand ball that
marked- the close of the four
days of festivities Wiis the
brightest, merriest feature of them all.
The celebration is over.
It outdid in every particular anything of
lt« hort rver attempted in California.
The drcorations surpass* d in beauty, the
Illumination made a fairyland of the city,
the parade dwarfed all that had preceded
It. and the Native Bens and Daughters,
conscious <if the scattering to the corners
of the State that would come with to
day, crowdtd all the spirit of merriment
That characterized the celebration into
the waltzes and twosteps and schot
tlschc-s of the grand ball.
The rain fell drearily and the streets,
that had been so gay with lights and flags
end bunting and so thronged with people,
seemed desolate by contrast. The bright
colors of the bunting- ran together arid
made crimson and yellow streaks on door-
Ft^ps and across sidewalks. Raindrops
dimmed the glory of the incandescent
lights festooned along 1 etreets and over
buildings, but inside Mechanics* Pavilion
there was no hint of the dreariness out
side. There 1500 people danced merrily,
•»h!le thousands more watched the danc
ers with delight and all thought only that
the end of the celebration was near and
That the pleasures of the ball must com
plete the measure of Joy of the carnival.
Mechanics' Pavilion never looked any
thing but barnlike until last night. The
decorations for the grand ball trans
formed it into a semblance of beauty that
was distinctly creditable to those wh'j

the floor manager, gave the signal, the

Judge R. C. Rust, grand president of the
Native Sons of the (Jolden West, and Mrs.

grand march covered the floor between

band struck up a waltz, the line broke
and the couples whirled into the mazes
of the dance.
While the lack of uniformity and con

from the scene as viewed in sections of
the ?ize of an ordinary bail, in its en
tirety the sea of dancers was a fascinat-

masses of Titian hair. Perfect types of
Spanish beauty mingled with ths less
pronounced types of American woman
hood. The ball vividly illustrated the
cosmopolitan character of the population
of the State. rj£
Immediately after the grand march hun

A hundred tables were arranged at the

THE iifth annual regatta of the Pa

was called oft yesterday, and will
take place on Saturday. The
mosquito fleet covered the "spe
cial course," reckoned as five nautical
miles, all right, but -when the boats in tho
25-foot, ! 30-foot, 30-foot, 44-foot and
70-foot classes, after rounding Blos
som Rock buoy, went off in search
of the leeward stakeboat. they were un
able to find It, the reason being the simple
one that it was not there. So, with the
exception of the tT.'enty-footers. none of
the yachts were able to'sall the course
laid down for them. Strict instructions
had been Riven to some one to set out a
leeward stakeboat, but it was not done.
Tender the circumstances there was noth
ing to do but to postpone the regatta, ex
cept as regards the twenty-footers.
