The Grandest Social Event in
tlie City's History.
They Come to Honor the Governor,
Colonel H. H. Markham.
A Scene of Beauty Within Its Walls Rarely
* *
Excelled—Some of the Guests at the
Grand Fete—Bid aad Ebant
Costumes of the Ladies.
The inaugural ball given at the Capitol
last night in lienor of Governor Mark
ham and Lieutenant-Governor Reddick,
waa, beyond doubt, the most brilliant so
cial event ever witnessed in Sacramento,
and many assert that it fur outshone any
thing of the kind in the history even of
•San Francisco, which can legitimately
boast of being the social and financial
center of the coast. Many events of like
character have occurred here, but in point
of elegance, richcostumory and charming
accessories none could comparo with the
Markham hftmgural ball.
Saetamento does not claim all, nor
nearly all, the credit for its success. While
it is true that her leading citizens entered
into tho spirit of the affair with zeal and
a determination to make it a brilliant so
cial success, it is equally true that, with
out the aid and co-operation of citizens in
other parts of the State, they could not
have hoped for tho grand result achieved.
The orange groves of tho sunny south
and of the thermal belt of the north; the
mining communities of the mountain
counties; tho broad wheat fields of the
valleys, and the social, political and mer
cantile circles of the metropolis—all con
tributed the best efforts of their most en
terprising citizens toward making the
event one long to be remembered in the
annals of the State.
Tlie invitations to tho ball were plain,
but tasteful and "in good form." They
The pleasure of your company

now the Capitol Appeared I^ist Nlglit
—Charming Decorations.
At at early hour in the evening the
Capitol building and gi-ounds were bathed
in a Hood of light from electric and gas
lamps. All the rooms in tho building
were brilliantly lighted, as well as tho in
terior of the great central dome overlook
ing the rotunda. Within the space of one
day and a half the interior of the impos
ing structure had undergone a remark
able change. Immediately after tho in
augural ceremonies on Thursday the
work of preparation for the grand ball
began at the Capitol. A largo force of
men had been engaged for the occasion,
and the Senate and Assembly Chambers
were soon cleared of chairs and desks,
and tbe task of decorating tho entire
building iv a manner befitting-the occa
sion was begun, Major Ennis, Chairman
of the Committee on Decorations, deter
mined tiiat, so far «s lay in his power
with the means And time at his command,
the noble building should be arrayed in
fitting costume to receive and entertain
the distinguished men and lovely women
from all over the State, who had gathered
to honor the new Governor and partiei

To one visiting the Capitol in the after
noon, in the bright sunshine of a Califor
nia midwinter day, the delicate garb of
clinging vine and plant and shrub, with
which the Interior was being clothed,
seemed in perfect harmony with the deep
green of the lawns and trees outside.
what a glorious ensemble and appeal to
the stranger from inhospitable clime!
The work of decoration began at the
very portals of the building. At the main
M-street entrance a temporary portal was
erected and draped with llags. The hall
ways of the entire lower floor were ap
propriated for tho dinner tallies, which
Were made as attractive as sparkling glass
and rare confections could make them.
All the tables were enlivened and beauti

served for the Governor and staff, ICing
Kalakaua and other notables was distin
guished by having seats only on one side,
the ether being a mass pf rare exotics of
endless variety, charming to the senses
ly their sweet fragrance, as well as by
their great beauty. On the alcoves of the
rotunda, on the lower floor, were grouped
palms and shrubs and potted plants of
many species.
The chandeliers on the stairways lead
ing to the upper floor of the rotunda were
beautifully festooned with smilax, and
pant palms stood sentinel at tlie different
landings. The doorway into the upper
rotunda was festooned with evergreens,
and from the center of the arch depended
a hanging basket, covered with moss and
filled with orchids and trailing vines. A
beautiful effect was produced oy festoon
ing the chandeliers on the railing around
the rotunda with* smilax and gorgeous
clusters of deep-yellow begonia, oppo
site to each chandelier being a huge
dniciena on a pedestal cleverly hid from
Were not profuse, but very pleasing in
their effect. The main effort was cen
tered in massing a lot of plants and flow
ers in a great bed of moss in the center of
the library rotunda, which elicited many
exclamations of delight from the fair por
tion of tlie throng. The mirrors and
doorways were all festooned with smilax,
and in the embrasures of the upper floor
was a circle of palms. The decorations
of tho hallways of the second floor con
sisted principally of California fan palius
and sago palms.
The Senr.ie and Assembly chambers
are so nearly perfect in their proportions
and in the blending of harmonious colors
that auy adventitious aid to their beauty
would seem superfluous, but no one who
saw the lovely and artistic result of the
decorator's art last night would hesitate
to admit that for the gala occasion their
claim to perfection bad been improved
upon. It needed all—flowers and music
end women —to make the scene complete.
In tho Senate chamber a temporary
platform had been erected around tbe
Speaker's stand, on which were seats for
a fcivored few. Around this platform
wero grouped a great variety of exotic I
plants in pots, the principal ones being
paims of different varieties, drawenas, i
crotons of all shades and colors, foliage I
begonias and sanchesias.
At the doorway was pendant a great
globe of Sowers, composed of chrysan
themums, abutilons and marigolds.
Pendant from each chandelier around,
tho gallery was a basket of plants of ]
many varieties, principally ferns and
trail ing vines, among Winch "the platycoria
alcicornia (or elk's horn fern) and maiden
liair fern, wero conspicuous. The mirrors
wero draped with siiiilax and begonia.
The Assembly chamber decorations
were much the same as those of the Sen
ate, and tho decorators—M. J. Dillman of
the Bell Conservatory, and F. A. Ebel of
tlie Park Nursery—deserve praise for the
wonderful results accomplished in so
short a time.

Pui-ty—Grand March.
Tho guests began to arrive as early as

around the main entrance to tho Capitol,
and pushed and shoved each other for a
glimpse of the handsomely-costumed
ladies as they alighted from their car
Tho rotunda and promenading halls
were warm and comfortable, and the
odor from the festoons and stands of
flowers was fairly into*icating.
Professor Stigliaao's San Francisco or
chestra was stationed in tho rotunda, just
above the Columbus statue, and upon the
appearance of the first couples struck up
dreamy airs and continued them, to the
delight of the promenadcrs, until the
grand march had begun.
By 9 o'clock the corridors presented an
exceedingly animated appearance. The
Governor's party was late, and in conse
quence the grand march was delayed.
Governor Markham's party consisted of
himself, Mrs. Markham and four daugh
ters, Marie, Alice, Gertrude and Gene
vieve, Mr. and Mrs. Gilchrist of Pasa

ficiently recovered from his recent illness
to be on hand, too, and was accompanied
by his wife.
"immediately after tho "arrival of the
Governor and party, however, the floor
commit tees set to work forming the grand
march in the main room of the Library.
The spaak>U3 room had been beautifully
decorated, festoons of smilax and flowers
circling the walls and potted plants placed
in the alcoves. This, with the aid of a
myriad of gas jets, made the scene an ex
ceedingly inviting one. An immense
stand of*tropical plants and ferns stood in
the center of the room aad emitted a fra
grance that was delightful. -
It was 10:30 o'clock when the signal for
the starting of the grand march was

What S3 Scrofula
It is that impurity in the blood, which, accumu
lating in the glands of the neck, produces un
sightly lumps or swellings; which causes painful
running sores on tho arms, legs, or feet; which
developcs ulcers in the eyes, ears, or nose, often
causing blindness or deafness; which ls the ori;;In
of pimples, cancerous growths, or many other
manifestations usually ascribed to " humors."
It is a more formidable enemy than consumption
or cancer alone, for scrofula combines tho worst
possible features of both. Being the most ancient,
ltls the most general of all diseases or affections,
for very few persons arc cntlroly freo from it
How can it be cured ? By taking Hood's Sarsa
pariUa, which, by tho cures it has accomplished,
often when other medicines havo failed, has
proven itself to be a potent and peculiar medicine
for this disease. For all atrectlons of tho blood
Hood's Sarsaparitti is unequalled, and some of tho
cure3 it has effected are really wocdorf til. If you
suffer from scrofula In any of its various forms,
be sure to give Hood's Sarsiii.-irilla a trial.
