"Tho fever of entertainment was not confined to San Francisco, for even after the southern California cities had given their alohas, tho people of the State poured into San Francisco by thousands to witness the arrival of the fleet at tho Golden Gate. The Ferry building was almost choked with each boat's arrival. They swarmed from tho back districts, from the farms and from cities and towns and villages at tho rate of about 25,000 a day. "Decorations were elaborate and, everywhere possible, electric lights were used.
