The Amer ican battleships fleet arrived here and anchored at 4:2S this afternoon, less than half an. hour behind the schedule, despite the tact that four hours of steaming after leaving Santa Monica at nine this morning was through a heavy fog which caused the speed to be reduced to six knots. Kver store in town was closed and all the inhab itants and thousands of visitors from surrounding towns, and the winter guests to the city who lingered for tne. fleet's arrival were on the seashore when the fleet arrived. Despite the haze the smoke of the ships was made out two hours before the an ors dropped.) After steaming in a single column all the way from the ports of Los An geles the ships changed Into a column of squadrons after entering the road stead lu re and heading directly for Ihe shore dropped at not more than laiiu yards from the shore. Anchoring here in a column of squadron a third va riety of anchoring was offered at Cal ifornia ports. A slight derangement of the steering gear of the Xew Jersey, and the machinery of the Missouri re sulted in the tardiness of these ships in taking up their assigned berths. The fleet will remain here for five days. A festival of flowers has been ar ranged in its honor. The display will begin on Monday with a floral parade and a battle of flowers. Though the city is prettily decorated .most of the entertainment fund will be spent upon flower features. A dance of flowers, open air dancing on the ocean boule vard for the enlisted men, receptions, garden parties, and balls will take up a portion of the long program. A formal welcome to the city was ex tended Admiral Thomas on the Con ne ticut soon after the anchoring. Mayor Boeseke of Santa Barbara and Kear Admiral Bowman H. Mci'allu.. l S.
