WHAT THE WANT
IS—TRY A WANT AD
VOL. XLIV. NO. 9
Yesterday was the day of days as far as
the parade was concerned, ft was a little
late about starting, but that gave the
favored multitude on thu tribunes a bet
ter opportunity to gaze upon the royal
assemblage about the throne and feast the
eyes on the exquisite derby day gown
which the Queen wore and tbe embellish
ments that had been added to the throne.
The awning in front of that artistic
structure was lined beneath with broad
stt lies of red, white and blue bunting.
Each Of the pillars supporting tho roof
was adorned with a handsome banner of
red and whito striped alike with a blue
velvet held over which golden stars were
dotted. Pennants of the red. white and
blue were stretched from the front of the
roof to the awning poles; and On either
side of the stairway entrance a large and
haudsome bunting Hag was planted to
catch what breeze there might be stirring.
Again the merciful fog shut off the sun's
glare, and with the punctuality that has
marked each of her appearances La Reina
and her retinue arrived at the regal
stamping ground yesterday at precisely 1
J. O. Koeotii again escorted her majesty
to the throne—and then came the afore
mentioned wait. During the prolonged
pause one of the übiquitous camera
tiends, this time a widow, to judge
by her garb, ambled into the arena ami
in the face of the assembled multitude
cocked ber camera on tbe Queen and her
court, pressed the button, and the sun,
which peeped out about that time, pre
sumably did the rest.
The Merchants' association was seated
in state on the front of the central tri
bune, in a section set apart, an I viewed
the parade after it came, and the tribunes
generally were better tilled than they have
been before with the same laudable In ten-

appeared rounding the corner and march
ing gallantly into the parade past the
canopied throne. The Los Angeles City

lowed by a regimental bugler and four
gorgeous yellow-bedecked mounted sig
nal corps men. Then Grand Marshal It.
W. l'ridhaiu and his chief of staff, Gen
eral Johnstone Jones, and aids. The
Bnrbank Theater band marched at the
head of the next section of the parade
that was led by Adjutant-General C. C.
Allen from Sacramento, and Brigadier-
General E. P. Johnson of tho First
brigade, mounted on finely caparisoned
and mettled horses. They saluted her ma
jesty with drawn swords* and gave way to
their staff that trooped by, also giving
the military salute. The staff consists of

of which role the bugle corps and
Colonel E. P. Spileman and his aids,
Lieutenant-Colonel .lohn B. Berry, Major
C. S. McKelvey and Major P. C. Prescott.
The Ninth tramped along in splendid
array and following their offi.ers' sword
salutes. Each company, as it passed in
the royal review, came to tho right
shoulder arms, and hurried along after
the rest. Their handsome silk American
Hag and the great blue regimental (lag
bearing the seal of the state were dipped
before her majesty, and as the gallant
soldiers paced by in rythmic cadence the
enthusiastic spectators burst into cheers
The regiment made a fine showing and
frequent cries of "Bravo, Pasadena!
Bravo. San Diego! Bravo, Riverside and

by groups of theiradmirers, caused smiles
of pride to creep over the stoical looking
soldier boys. Tne officers in line by com

5 The drum corps was led by four lifers,
backed by twelve snare drummers, sup- j
ported by two bass drummers.followed by j
twelve buglers. Their instruments were
in fine feather nnd the music was excellent.
As the corps passed the Queen's stand
the whole band united in a splendid burst
of inarch music that brought an involun
tary outbreak of cheering that must have
been highly pleasing to the men in line.
The troops marched in double rank by
platoons, eighteen abreast, and the sight
of the long undulating column completely
tilling the street, aroused the military
spirit of the spectators and caused the
small boy to prance aloirft outstriding
himself after the process! 1
But the perfect storm of cheers and
hurrahs that had been rolling around the
Tribunes became a roar from about the
Queen's throne as brave, compact little
Company A of the San Diego naval re
serves, fifty-live seamen strong, went
swinging by, saluting the Queen ga'lantly |
as they passed. Their uniforms of blue
cap-, blouses and sailor trousers, with
brown leggings and brown, well-lilted !
belts and swinging carbines, together
with their general air of solidity,' strength
and sailorly bearing, gave them nticli a i
"built for business" appearance that the |
crowds were with them from start to
finish and applauded them lustily. They
inarched iv two platoons, each double
ranked, a drummer and bugler between,
and as thry man bed they went through
several pretty evolutions. Company B did
not come from San Diego; Company A.
with tiftv-five men, und 11 have a bat
talion membership of 105 in all. Company
A was under Lieutenant Commander
Thomas M. Graw, Junior Lieutenant

Following the naval reserve tramped
the 11. A. R. drum corps that has received
an ovation wherever it has passed after it
fallowed the splendid O. A. R. float,
drawn by artillery horses ami manned by
veterans representing each branch of the
service. They dipped their Hags to I,a
Reina and cheered her lustily. The Oity
Guard l and of San Diego'came booming
along the stretch, lead ing the next division
and their drum major gucefully saluted
as he passed the Stand. Behind the hand
caracoled half a dozen members oi tbe
Ladies' Riding club and visitors from
Santa Monica. Mr-°. Hooper, the presi
dent of the club. Alice de Forest and tho
welcome strangers made a pretty feature
of the passing show as they rode among

staff led the party.
A graceful act was that of Marshal Vin
cent Sentous and his aids, Emile Fauro
and Manuel Aroque of the French divis
ion, who. as they came before La Reina's
throe, reined their horses around before
her and rendered thair obeisance hand
somely. Three men of the sappers' and
miners' corps followed them, and at an
interval strode the giu.nt drum major in

school of St. Cyr, under command of
Captain Louis Bilande. Lieutenant Joseph

The French division was a charmuieng
feature and its members covered them
selves with glory by their characteristic
courteous and soldierly bearing.
A good oompaliy of twenty eight uni
formed and armed knights of Pythias
under command of a knightly captain,
and two lieutenants, completed the mili
tary division of the pageant. The knights
were as tine appearing a body of men as
could grace a parade, and their line car
riage and handsome uniforms caused
much complimentary talk among tbe
Later in the march of the procession
there were a few additions and changes
in the columns. A masquerader dressed
as Uncle Sam, or Brother Jonathan fell
into the procession behind the giand
Army of the Republic float. He was
mounted on a high, old-fashioned bicycle
heavily decorated, and before him on his
handle bars he bore a miniature of the
celebrated little red school house, out of
tne chimney of which stuck a small
He was cheered frequently and much
good-humored badinage was thrown at
the old man, who acted his part with ap
parent earnestness and very successfully.
Headed by Marshal C. W. Hicks and
aids and sustained by the melodious
strains of a march by the Orange county
band, the third division appeared on the
scene, and the third division was strictly
the banner division of the day, the mili
tary and the lire department in the others
to the contrary notwithstanding.
It was made up of tbe Oriental display,
and the Chinese did themselves, their own
country and their adopted one great
credit as usual.
It must, have been Confucius who origi
anted that historic saying that "a thing
worth doing at all is worth doing well.'
At all events his descendants contributed
a factor in last, year's Fiesta that sur
passed the wildest surmises on the sub
ject, and yesterday's display equalled it.
Immediately behind the band was Chan
Kui Sing, interrcter for the Chinese Mer
chants' association, and marshal of the
Mr. Sing rode a milk white steed and
was garbed in tich silken raiment of the
shades of blue; he had upon his head a
Chinese straw sombrero and in his right
hand a short staff with ribbon streamers
of the Fiesta colors.
These he graciously waved to the mul
titude at large and the Queen in particu
lar by way of salute. Back of him strode
an aid on foot, garbed in lavender native
costume, also of silk. This retainer bore
au American flag aloft.
Behind this Chinese pedestrian were
two carrying gongs which they beat per
sistently". Then live Chinamen carrying
handsomely embroidered native banners,
and following them were four Chinese
merchants on horseback. The latter were
sumptuously arrayed in garments which
were spread out and showed to the best
advantage the line workmanship of the
gold thread and silk embroideries with
which they were entirely covered. Next
came a Chinese band on a Moat playing
Chinese music; behind this Was the Sag
of the empire, a gol 1-einbioidered dragon
rampant on a triangular hold of dark
blue, carried by a coolie, ami following
the emporor's banner was that of the
nobility, a circular umbrella-like banner
line solid mass of gold embroidery, which
explained the legend of the royal family
to which it belonged.
These banners Immediately preceded
three equestrians who wore the full dress
of the Chinese mandarin, and the cos
tumes were simply stunning, more mass
ed gold and silk embroidery than could
be seen and told of in an hour, and the
hats of each one adorned with the dis
tinctive mark—the peacock feather. Each
mandarin was followed by retainers car
rying more legendary banners, each weal
ing a curved feather fan stuck throngh
the back of his belt, and behind them
were tbe retinue, sixteen soldiers clad in
long loose blue, belted at the waist, aud
with shovel-shaped hats on, from the
crowns of which fell scarlet silk tusselc. 4
Over their shoulders they carried long
staves or weapons with gold and silver
insignia on the end.
Next in order was a float, decorated
with Fiesta colors, and containing eight
mythological genii id China, good spirits
ol tbe air which are believed to be hold
ers and distributors of all forms of life.
These spirits were represented by Chinese
children who were beautifully dressed in
their native costumes and wearing an air
of noble reserve.
Back of this Boat were two incense
