Banquet at St. Francis Is
Success —Long Program
The first day of the convention",Of
the Music Teachers' association was: a
success* from 9 o'clock yesterday morn
ing until 9 o'clock. last night/ A ban
quet at which more than 100 delegates
took their seats last night, in the spa
cious dining room at the St. Francis
hotel closed the opening day's formali
ties.' 7-- ,' " "-. ?■ .
President John C. Manning made the
speech of welcome and suggested that
there was need of harmony amongst
the teachers of polyphony. He '~ was
answered ,by Henry Bretherick, state
president, who said:
"As representative .of the Music
Teachers' association of this state, I
sincerely thank you for- your genial
welcome, and I -assure you that the
members bring to San Francisco hearty
greetings and appreciation of the prep
arations made to entertain them at this
•'This association is no longer an in
fant; great things' are expected of it.
Each year finds us stronger, more
united, harmonious and zealous in the
cause of musical development in Cali
PROFIT FROM OTHERS
'The progress we are making is evi
dence that we have profited by the
eastern states which have worked along
the same lines, and we are beginning
to see re_*ults.
"It is my sincere hope that the year
1915 will find a strong local branch of
this association in, every county of the
state. * •'-., -*V-f7-~
"Our charter grants various powers
for benefiting the profession and the
communities in which we are working.
"Already some movements have been
Instituted, and are being carried out
successfully, and others are yet to be
considered; for example,, the artists
engagement bureau is a helpful and
protective measure. The orchestra
movement Is a disseminator of the best
music to the masses at a nominal cost.
It must receive commendation. The
means of providing for old age and
the wornout teacher is worthy our seri
ous consideration, and"the possibility nf
owning a home or a building adopted
to our musical needs under our abso
lute control Is not a visionary project.
By co-operation and a practical ad
ministration of our affairs, these acces
sories can be added to our present
"Too much responsibility is placed
•upon the officers of our association.
The officers are merely the guiding
find executive hand, the members are
the active force and power by which
results are .red. and the promotion
of Round teaming fostered.
•"it is to he hoped that the east and
the wet-1 will unite in preparing for a
musical congress such as the world
has never seen, to be held in San Fran
cisco in 1915, and the Music Teachers'
association of California, with its large
resources, can become an active fac
tor in.such a movement."

"When the Pacific ? Mail liner Peru

j rail and united in rendering peans of
] praise, in .the, vernacular, over their
arrival at' a haven of safety.
** "Gosh, * there's the ferry building,"

j a ..third, who had been one of ' three
Americans to 'hike" across 300 miles of

Mrs. George 1. Ham, wife of an Amer

and twice in train wrecks, betrayed
her emotion when the ship swung
around the last headland and she could
discern a group of friends waiting for
her oh the dock. *
TRAMPED 300 MILES
There were others-who - shared the
general feeling of relief.; Three Amer
icans, B. A. Guthe, J. VS. Reynolds and
H. G. Works, lumbermen, packed their
belongings 300 miles across the desert.
Two other passengers were Miguel Tar
riba, wealthy mine owner, despoiled of
his holdings and forced to flee, and his
.companion, .J. A. Thornhill. There was
A. J. Almanda, wealthy merchant of Ala
