WORD BY KAISER
Consul Conveys Greetings
From Emperor and
Gift From Ruler
Is on Way
TO MARK THE EVENT
Speeches, Music and Even
Tears Distinguish Na
tional Club Affair
With an impressive service of song
and praise, followed by a typical jubi
lant festival such as only the Teutonic
heart can conceive. the German-
American residents of San Francisco
last night dedicated tneir rich con
tribution to the city by the Golden
gate—the handsome new German
House, built at a cost of $300,000.
The cry was in the air rather than
on the lips of the 6.000 and more men
and women who gathered in the beau
tiful new building to take part in the
dedication. To many c* the older
citizens the hour was one of deep sig
nificance, for it brought a realisation
of an old dream that has been before
the German residents for more than a
quarter of a century.
That dream was the vision of a
temple on the shores of the Pacific
dedicated to the art and culture of the
fatherland. Every Teuton. even
though he be an expatriate, cherishes
still a deep, patriotic regard for the
nation of the Rhine, and the comple
tion of the German House means that
the atmosphere of the old country is
brought close to him in the new.
The opening of the new building
thus became the occasion for a great
demonstration that will be prolonged
until another week Is past. Music,
speeches, cheers, laughter and a few
tears here and there, showed the sen
timent and spirit in which the great
hall was dedicated.
A message from his majesty. Emperor
"William, transmitted through Herr
Franz Bopp. the consul general In San
Francisco, was an event of the even
ing. When the kaiser learned that the
German-Americans of the Pacific were
building a typical national clubhouse
and auditorium he sent words of en
couragement and approval, and more
recently a personal gift for the library
of the hall, to show his interest.
Unfortunately this had not arrived
last night, but Consul General Bopp
told what it was and interpreted the
meaning ot such a token. The present
Is to be an edition de luxe of a famous
German classic, "Die Wartburg: em
Denkmal deutscher Deschichte under
Kunst," "The Wartburg: A Monument
of German History and Art."
< OXSI I. STEAKS FOR KAISF.K
Tn his address. Consul General Bopp
"I am proud of the fact that I can
speak on this occasion, not only for
myself, but am permitted to speak for
a higher power.
'Only a few days ago I received from
his majesty, the German emperor, a
cablegram filled with congratulations
and good wishes to the German people
of San Francisco. He has shown his
Interest also by presenting you with
a copy of the celebrated work: 'Die
Wartburg: A Monument of German
History and Art.'
"This book is one of the best known
of the German classics. It tells of the
power and greatness of the German'
people, of their arts and sciences, but
that was not the only reason for the
gift of this book. There may be a
symbolical meaning in the selection
of this particular work for your new
"The Wartburg. built in the gray
middle ages, has seen a thousand years
of German history pass over it and
it still stands—immortal and undying.
So this German House should stand—
an impiortal monument to the art and
culture of the Fatherland. This pres
ent of t.he emperor should remind the
German residents of San Francisco of
their duty in preserving and foster
ing the culture of their nation and in
fulfilling that duty they may know that
the emperor is with them in spirit."
THREE CHEERS FOR KAISER
At the close of the address three
cheers were given for the kaiser, fol
lowed by the enthusiastic singing of
"Die Wacht am Rhein." led by the
Pacific saengerbund, with the immense
The great auditorium was' filled to
overflowing and hundreds were unable
to find seats. John Hermann, president
of the House association, made the first
address, welcoming the audience in
the native tongue of the Fatherland.
He praised the indomitable spirit of
the men who built the German House
and likened the dedication to a dream
come true at last.
Supervisor Adolph Koshland. repre
senting Mayor Rolph, was the next
speaker. He said In part:
"In this beloved community of ours,
where more than In any other city the
cosmopolitan nature of our inhabitants
has added an especial interest to the
city's life and activities, there is no
part of the community that has In

Special Dispatch to Tbe Cell
PETALUMA, Dec. 7.—The Petal uma
Poultry Fanciers' association's show
here has never been classed as a large
one, l>nt the class of the birds more
than makes up for lack of numbers.-
At that, 1,200 entries make no mean
show in point of size.
In the orplngtons. W. H. Ingram of !
Fruitvale had nearly a clean sweep,
winning first and second right down
the line, the balance of the exhibitors
of this variety having to content them
selves with thirds and fourths.
In the American breeds, wyandottes,
Rhode Island reds and Plymouth rocks
the honors were more evenly distrib

this class. A. L. Jenkins, the Wyandotte
man of Sebastopol, was the victim of
hard luck, and will have to try another

twice, and only needed to make good
this year to own the cup. He got
everything necessary except the cock,
his bird losing to Tom McGulre's "Peta

west of the Rockies and one of the best
in the United States.

however, it became apparent that any

Pathetic Tribute Is Paid to
President Taft During
Evening of Joke
By Associated Preo
* WASHINGTON, Dec. T.—The land
slide of 1912; how it happened and the
futility of an attempt to reorganize the
"G. O. P." on the old lines were the
themes upon which played the w.Jt
and humor of the Gridiron club at
the annual fall dinner tonight. Events
of political Importance and actions
upon which turned national Issues were i
treated in a spirit of levity and fun.'
Underlying each Jest and quip and
skit were touches of human sympathy
and kindliness for the victims of tha
November avalanche, as well as some
bits of homely advice and warning for
the victors, that kept everybody in
Not even his late political enemies
failed to welcome the pathetic tribute
to President Taft In the song rendered
by the Gridiron quartet appealing to
him "not to forget us when you go
away." The president sat and listened
with the members of his cabinet scat
tered about the banquet hall.
The fun started early. It was dis
covered that the usually immaculate
hall was not as tidy as It should be,
and a "white wing" was sent about
gathering all sorts of litter. This
turned out to be "campaign rubbish,"
and each find brought forth a ripple
of applause. He pulled out from the
bandstand a pair of moose horns and
the club members tossed Into his bag
some wornout souvenirs of the cam
paign. Such were the "last positive
predictions of Senator Dixon and
Charles D. Hllles"; "that smile that
wouldn't come off"; the "bluff at big
business, O. X.'d by Bill Bryan"; a
couple of old empty wallets, one
marked "C. P. T." and the other "O.
W. P."; the peace treaties; the com
merce court, and the "hopes Of Henry
Cabot Lodge for the chairmanship of
the foreign relations committee."
TWO NOVICES INITIATED
Unlike other clubs, the Gridiron club
Initiates its members In public, and
this time it acquired two worthy young
Journalists in novel fashion. Hobbling
into the hall on crutches, bandaged,
hats knocked In and clothes disheveled,
came caricatures of President Taft,
"Uncle Joe" Cannon, "Nick" Longworth,
Murray Crane and Representatives Sul
loway, McKinley and Dalzell, "sons of
the landslides," who declared their pur
pose to reorganise the republican party
rallying around the states of Utah and
Vermont. The messengers from these
states each announced their four votes
in a limerick, Vermont declaring:
In the Green Mountain state, recoliec'.
Old Taft won out by a neck;
And we'd elected him
Ef they hadn't neglected him
In forty-six states, by heck.
The messengers, It was discovered,
were "bufl moose spies" in disguise,
who, when stripped of their false
beards, turned out to be the new mem
bers of the club, Charles P. Keyser,
correspondent of the St. Louis Globe-
Democrat, and Edward B. Clark, cor
respondent of the Chicago Evening
SHOTS AT SENATORS
The republican electoral college In
sisted on meeting while the dinner
was in progress to name a candidate
for the second place, for which various
names were suggested only to be in
stantly withdrawn by solicitous friends.
Of such was that "stable minded, never
changing his views patriot," Herbert S.
Had ley, the "Sterling Revisionist" Reed
Smoot; the "Invincible" Borah; the
"great friend of the common people,"
Senator Penrose, and Robert Marion
La Follette, whose motto Is "Forgive
your enemies," who recommended that
the "place be given to Oyster Bay."
Then the scene changed to the orient,
and the battle of Amageddon was
fought In realistic style, as described
by half a dozen war correspondents
for the benefit of old Saul, who had
come to the scene of his early con
Correspondent Lodge reported that
Field Marshal Dixon, had mowed down
Field Marshal McCoombs with a har
vester machine. McCoombs had poured
a hot statement into Field Marshal
Hilles, and Hllles had hit Dixon with
some majority claims. Midshipman
Glfford Plnchot, aid to General Per
kins, reported that the general needed
ammunition and had sent him for a
i fountain pen to write a check. What
Saul supposed to be a horse turned out
to be a bull moose, and the two men
hanging on his flank, Adam Bede and
John Harlan, were said to be the "Truth
tellers." "Do they tell the truth?" in
quired Saul. To which Correspondent
Champ Clark replied, "Say. Mister,
you're not a king; you're the court
ARMAGEDDON FOUGHT AGAIN
Fresh from the battlefield on his
horse. Correspondent Watterson re
( ported that as he left the field the
democrats of the house were trying to
arrange the tariff schedules, "and the
carnage was frightful." Through his
glasses, Saul discerned the general on
the bull moose, dashing toward the
large general seated on the putting
green, followed by the tennis cabinet.
Saul's inquiry as to the Identity of the
nine men surrounding Taft was an
swered by the explanation that they
were his cabinet, "who will get into
the battle after it is over." What was
first supposed to be "the dawn of day,"
turned out to be Colonel Jim Ham
Lewis, and an "engine of war," to
Saul's ancient eye was only Governor
Hiram Johnson. Even his old friend,
"Joan of Arc" was really Albert J.

DEVILS LAKE, N. D. # Dee. 7.—
Lars Jensen, a laborer employed
on a building; under construction
■ere, fell from the third floor late
today when a scaffold broke. He
waa bailed beneath brleks and
mortar. While his fellow em
ployes were loudly discussing
whether to rail a physician or
notify the coroner, a voice from
beneath the debris shoutedt "To
■ with the doctor, dig me out."
Fifteen minutes later Jensen waa
working on another scaffold, ap
Beverldge. disguised as "Mary of the
The action progressed until the bull
moose and Its" followers were fleeing
and the man with the golf stick was
preparing fo leave the green. The bat
tle was soon over and Saul started post
haste for Washington to seek a Job,
declaring that he had been a "lifelong
democrat since the battle ended."
CARMEN IS TRAVESTIED
One of the striking features of the
evening's entertainment was a rendi
tion of a complete act of the tuneful
opera of Carmen by the vocalists of the
club In full costume. This was the fa
mous act of the bull fight, only It was
rendered with stranger characters than
Bizet ever dreamed of, and even the
bull was replaced by a full grown
bull moose. Entered Don Jorge Perk
lnsarlo, champion bull moose trainer
of the world, who announced that the
Mexicans, tired of bull fighting, wanted
a sport that had some real hot tamales
and chile con came In it, which meant
a bull moose fight. President Garthe.
after a whispered conversation with
President Taft, announced that the
president of the United State* assures
me that you can have him (the bull
mbose) and welcome."
Carmen appears, "history's gay
coquet," as "Popular Applause," and
sings, "To win my smile the greatest
statesmen pause, but when my glances
seem most fair, then have a care, be
The bull moose, pawing and snorting,
enters, and then in order the toreadors
are introduced and invited to explain
their methods of attack. Don Roberto
La Follettlo replies: "If I had got a
chance to catch my breath, Pm sure I
could have talked the brute to death,"
but hastily retires into the group as the
bull moose makes a demonstration.
Toreador Don Champ Clarklo sings:
I know the way to get that moeae so grim;
Why don't ttaev turn Bill Bryan looae on him.
If they did that, I'd have a good excuse
For aaytng, "Go It, Bill; go it, bull moots."
"DON TAFTIO, MATADOR"
Then they sang Carmen:
Carmen: "But Where's Don Taftio?
That's the man Pd call by far the
worthiest Matador of all."
Don Jorge: "Don TaftlO's a gooa
fighter, people say."
Carmen—Too good for any rough and tumble fray,
Frank and forbearing, inclined to show
A liberal mind to an ungenerous foe.
This little message he has paused to writs,
"I'm busy now, let Hllles run the fight."
Yet he's the kind of man I hate to acs
Fonder of duty than he la of me.
Then the climax: Don Woodrow sing
ing and waving his blade asserts:
I'll bowl bim over with classic lore,
Lines of Euripides, phrases of Sophocles,
Plato and Plutarch, at him I'll bellow and roar,
Oratory in all Ita glory I'll burl at him With
might and main.
He'll get no chance to tell the story,
I'll never let him explain.
Whereupon he turns upon the bull
moose, who falls and is dragged off by
the S. P. C. A, while Don Woodrow
turns to Miss Popular Applause, who
greets him: "Woodrow, I'm yours for
four long years, per-haps."
FAREWELL TO PRESIDENT
The farewell to President Taft was
touchlngly conveyed In the verses en
titled "On the Ohio," set to the music
of "Moonlight Bay," as follows:
By the old Ohio chore
There'e a town
Famous since tha days of yore,
Cincinnati—good old atatloo —
For tha leader of our nation
Walts with welcoming oration
On tha Ohio.
When the moonbeama ehlne

Yon should chance to be.
Won't you think of u« In Washington, D. 0.
We hare met
Where the broad Potomac flows.-
We will lose the friend that goes;
When to Fountain square you wander
Won't you sometimes pause and ponder
On tbe friends so distant yonder
From the Ohio.
