Monthly Mooting of the Old Soldiers
and Sailors Last Evening
McDonald ball was fully occupied last
evening by members of Camp No. 8,
Army and Navy Republican league, it
being their regular monthly meeting.
This organization is composed of all
honorably discharged Union soldiers
and sailors, who desire to uphold the
principles of the Republican party. Many
of the members also belong to the G.
A. R., which prohibits political discus
sions at Its meetings. The organiza
tion is general throughout the country,
and the headquarters for this state are
In San Francisco. Camp No. 8 has a
membership of 200, and 1b the only camp
in Los Ang<»les county. Fred W. Steln
is colonel commanding, and John Davis,
adjutant. Other camps will soon be
instituted in Southern California. The
number of veterans eligible for member
ship in this county is estimated at $4,000.
The camp has a council committee of
five whose duty It Is to assist members
to obtain ejnployment.
At the meeting last night several new
members were added to the roster and
much Interest was manifested In the
cause. During the camp session several
brief speeches were made by members,
including Major W. S. Redding, Col. C.
M. Fairbanks, Col. George A. Allen,
Capt. Thomas Laycock, and Sergeant
A. E. Davis, county supervisor.
Given a Chance to Quit, but Found
With Tools on His Person
Although arrested a week ago last
Friday andi kept in Jail for several days
on suspicion for attempting to pass an
imitation JlO Confederate bill on a Main
street lodging house, Keeper Georg3
Richardson ,or Casey as his name Is
said 'to be, gained' no,experience there
by and is once more bexiind the bars.
Casey was released because he told the
names of the balance of the gans who
were working with him and where *hey
were to be found. He also promised to
get out of town and do no more crooked
work. The detectives say he has faiiei
to keep his word.
Detective Goodman has been keeplm;
a close watch on the gang, and learned
enough to satisfy him that Casey need
ed taking care of. The young fellow has
been consorting with a well known, dis
reputable w oman, and was captured In
her room about 11 oclock last night.
When searched at the station a lock
pick and a couple of skeleton keys were
found concealed under his shirt next to
his body, w rapped in a silk handkerchief.
He also had an Imitation Confederate' fl
bill. The officer is of the opinion that
Casey contemplated turning a trick, and
will keep him where he will bozher no
one until after the Fiesta festivities.

with pomp, ceremoifi pageantry; each
day seems to bring alimax—but the cli
max, when reached on -y prepares the
From a photograph by Thors
way for another and greater one to fol
The young queen Is just now but be
ginning to arrange some of the details
of the week of pageantry. Fortunately
she has, In her first lady-ln-waltlng, Mrs.
Granville MacGowan, a most able co
adjutor, one well versed In matters of
court etiquette, possessed of judgment,
discretion and tact, and fully capable at ,
deciding those puzzling questions which
always arise at Fiesta times.
In her own home last week I met Miss
Francisca Alexander, and for a short
time discussed with her some of the de
tails of her coming reign. She met me
with that grace of manner which her
friends say ts her distinguishing charm,
wholly without affectation, peculiarly
She wore a little black dress, with a
filmy fluffy chiffon ruffle around her
pretty throat, fastened with a great
cluster of gleaming yellow narcissus.
By the by, she said yellow was hen
fa voiite color, so I imagine this brilliant
tone will figure in many ways In the
court during Fiesta week.
"I was quite amazed," Miss Alexander
said "when I first received this appoint
ment, and I resfused it at once, decidedly
and positively. '
"I did not feel that I was suited to be
the queen, and when Mr. Rule said I
might take time to consider the matter,
I laughed and answered that it was not
necessary to think about it at all.
"But Mr. Rule would not accept my
answer then, and later other Influences
were brought to bear upon me, and my
frlendis were all so kind aaid so urgent
that I did consider the matter.
"Of courses before so much influence
and so much kindness my own objections
melted away, and almost before I knew
it I had consented, and now I am really
going to be the queen."
There Is nothing statuesque in the
new queen. She is full of Are of Inten
sity HeT dark eyes light up with feeling
as she talks, her color comes and goes
in rich waves, her mobile face is full of
changing expression, and In the firm,
warm clasp of her hand you feel there is
something that reaches out to human
ity. There Is no doubt that In the com
ing Fiesta the queen will study the peo
ple and be quick to respond to their
loyalty and their admiration.
The court has at laßt been settled,
though many changes have been made.
Officially given, the court now numbers
sixteen members, ten fair young mat
rons and five maidens, as follows:
Mmes. Granville MacGowan, EdwarJ
Silent, Sumner P. Hunt, J. D. Foster, A.
Balch, A. C. Jones, J. F. Jones, Godfrey
Holterhoff, Will Bishop, Othe/nan
Stevens, Misses Alice Keenan: Rose
Newmark, Margaret Landell, Florence
Silent, May Newton and Christina
In speaking of the dress of the court,
the queen said: "I should like very mucn
to have a French court and the dress of
the eighteenth century, those pictur
esque Watteau costumes without
trains, with tunic and bodice. The style
is charming in its simplicity, and noth
ing could be prettier."
This question of dress has caused
much agitation, but Mrs. MacGowan
quite agrees with the queen on the
charm of this French court dress, and
the decision is about made. This will
give the big picture hats that may be
worn most effectively by both matron
and maid.
Of course the ball will be a yellow ball,
a brilliant flame of yellow, the queen's
! Jsvorite color, with the Fiesta red and
' fteen in some harmonious effects.
Mrs. Annie Bancroft, the artistic dec
orator, is working upon the ball, and if
she Is half as successful as she was last
year the ball room will be a picture.
Mrs. Bancroft is very anxious this
year to have the musicians in costume,
! half in red and half In green. For the
' spectacular effects Mrs. Bancroft thinks
I this quite necessary. The effect of forty
llnusicians In black coats Is a blot upon
the landscape, and, in fact, spoils the
whole picture. The musicians should
be one of the featv_»?*s of the stage, and
should blend In with the whole in har
monious detail.
The committees at the ball will all
wear white, a continental fancy dress,
quite fetching.
The queen's ball gown is finished; it is
a beautiful, glittering, shimmering mass
of cream and gold brocade, with a royal
purple velvet train falling from the high
Jeweled colter; yards and yards of rich,
deep violet velvet trimmed with ermine.
The train is lined with cream satin and
is caught on each shoulder with large
gold and, white buckles set with dia
The bodlice of the dress is pointed and
Is cascaded? with the rarest old lace, a
priceless heirloom in the family, as is
also the magnificent diamond necklace
which the queen will wear for the first
time at the ball. The neck of the dress
Is cut square and a magnificent gold
lace collar finishes the back. The sleeves
are short, falling below the shoulder,
revealing the upper part of the arm and
the rich lace that decorates them, is
caught up with diamonds pins. With
this costume is worn the girdle of Jewels,
the crown, the scepter; the latter is
studded with diamonds, as are also the
little cream satin slippers Which go with
the costume. All the materials for the
queen's costumes have been, bought at
the Boston store, and the beautiful
gowns of the royal wardrobe are being
made by Mrs. L,og.se Potts, modiste, in
the Muskegon block.
Nothing could be much more beautiful
than this ball gown, in which the rich
dark beauty of the queen will be brought
out in high relief.
At the ball the minuet will be danced
by the court. Of course the queen's
lancers will be in attendance upon her
everywhere. This year their dress will
be military, navy blue, with yellow trim
mings and yellow plumes on their hats.
Gold buttons and gold braid make this
dress most effective and imposing for the
street parades' and far more suitable
in all the pageants than, the dress worn
by the lancers last year.
The gown the queen will wear at the
races is of striped pink satin and gauze
over white silk. The skirt is round and
very full the waist round and finished
with a belt of pearls. A wide, rich col
lar of lace finishes the throat, and a fall
of lace from the elbow sleeves meets the
long, white gloves. Fluttering ribbons
will adorn the dress and trimmings of
pearls. A big, picturesque hat of waits,
adorned with pink chiffon, flowers and
plumes, will be worn with this costume,
and a pink and white flower parasol will
shade the fair face of the Fiesta queen
upon that day.
Upon Floral day the queern will wear
her favorite color, a deep, rich, yellow
brocaded satin, with a long, golden,
satin train; yards and yards of the
shimmering material, lined with white
satin and trimmed with ermine. The
square and finished at the back with a
bodice is long and pointed, the neck
high collar. Pearls will be worn with
this costume. The whole dress Is a pic
ture in yellow and white, and Is perhaps
the most striking of all the court dresses.
It is peculiarly suited to the dark, rich
beauty of the queen, and the glowing
color is particularly fetching.
The gown to be worn at the conceTt Is
a rich green and pink! satin brocade.
The long, sweeping train Is of deep ruby
velvet, lined with pale green satin and
trimmed with ermine. Like the others,
this dress is made in the style of the
eighteenth century, with long, pointed
bodice, square neck and high, wide,
flaring, jeweled collar. The skirt is
very plain In front and sides and very
full at the back. With all these dresses
the jewels will be worn, the beautiful
crown and the scepter.
The coropation robe has two waists,
the second one being of golden tissue.
The trains are all round and the sleeves
reach the elbow. Glittering, Jeweled
buckles are used to fasten the trains
upon the shoulders, and also to catch
the draperies as needed.
Possibly no Fiesta queen has been
able to wear the beautiful Jewels that
will grace the person of the fair queen of
Old family heirlooms are hers, rare
and precious stones belonging to
Spanish ancestors, and preserved for
many generations; also rare and price-
less lace, as fine as a cobweb and ex
quisite in pattern. These family heir
looms are greatly prized by the queen,
who, however, will not consider them
too precious to grace the person of La
Reina de la Los Angeles.
Across the River
The entertainment given Friday
evening at Banquet hall by the Eureka
Rebekah Lodge was well attended,
every seat being filled. The program
consisted of music, recitations and drills.
The instrumental music by Miss
Schlafly was well worthy the encore
which it received, "Chimes of Nor
mandy" by eleven little girls was one
of the most pleasing features of the
evening; the simple little ballad sung
by one of their number was most charm
ing. A hoop drill given by twelve young
ladies was very neat, showing much
care in preparation. Miss Maggie Keath
sang very sweetly. A comic song by
Professor Biddle was well received, and
the violin solo was highly enjoyed by
Mrs. F. W. Chase of Pasadtena avenue

Three Lively Contests in a Figueroa .
Street Barn Yesterday
Whether it is the result of the Corbett- i
Fitzslmmons fight or simply a desire on
the part of Young America to excel in
the "manly art," cannot be authorita
tively stated but it Is a fact that many
of the school boys about town have taken
to the gloves and some of them havebe-;
come quite proficient, from a pugilistic
point of view.
The fistic Interest reachedi a climax
yesterday morning, when six young
"pugs," who had been actively "train
ing" for three weeks past, entered the
ring that had been improvisedlin a small
barn at Twenty-third and Figueroa
streets. An admission fee of 15 cents was
ichargeid, and as the gate receipts
amounted 1 to $5 the number of boys pres
ent must have been quite large.
Everything had been arranged ac
cording to the code, referee, timers and
seconds being on hand. Five ounce
gloves were used. The gate receipts
were divided among the winners.
Time was called at 10:30 and three con
tests took place, with no more serious
results than a broken finger and tooth.
The boy pugiillsts were from 16 to 18
years of age and' connected with good
families, but being still within the pale
of paternal Indignation they are not
anxious to have their names,published.
There was considerable excitement at
times during the contests, one of which
was stopped and declared a draw.

A Living Landmark and a Well-
Known Character Passes Away
Another living landmark has passed
away by the death of. George B. lelip of
San Gabriel canyon, Azusa. Mr. Islip
was one of the oldest pioneers of the
state, having settled in Santa Barbara
county sixty years ago. His love of the
mountains led him to valuable explora

characters,!!} those who take delight
among th» hills. Over a score of years
