PASADENA. May 31.—(Regular Cor
respondence.) The observance of Memo
rial day was very general among Pasa
dena's citizens, all the stores being
.closed and nearly everybody turning out
to do honor to the nation's dead by a
fit observance of the day set apart as
sacred to their memory. The day's ex
ercises had been well planned and the
arrangements were all carried out with
out any accidents to mar the observ
ance of the day. That there were flow
ers ln abundance goes without saying,
ln Pasadena. In fact, there were loads
and loads of them and the fifty-five
graves of veterans In Mountain View
cemetery were literally hidden from
view by the mass of flowers—the choic
est blossoms that grow ln any clime—
placed upon the graves of the battle
scarred veterans by the loving hands
of the 360 children who took part ln the
observance of the day. •
Marshal A. M. Klson was in charge of
the parade, which formed at 9 oclock on
East Colorado street ln front of G. A. R.
hall. Marshal Elson had the assistance
of the following aids: E. Groenendyke,
W. S. Lacey, F. M. Washburn and W. C.
The parade made a pleasing sight as
tt pas,»e.d—the veteran heroes pf many
battleflelds followed by the children
bearing flowers for the graves of the
dead. There were eighty-five soldiers
ln line and their number was augmented
by about forty more when they reached
North Pasadena. All went on to the
cemetery by the Terminal train, which
stood ln waiting. As the parade reached
the station the veterans formed in open
order and the school children, passing
between the ranks, handed flowers to
the soldiers. The old soldiers at North
Pasadena were in command of Comrade
J. J. Harris, and the children from the
Washington school, North Pasadena,
were ln charge of Prof. G. W. Wilson
When all had arrived at the cemetery
the different societies formed on the G.
A. R. plot ln the following order: G. A.
R. post on the west, W. R. C. on the
east; Sons of Veterans camp, firing
squad and Ladies' Aid on the north;
school children on the south.
There were the usual ritualistic ex
ercises, participated in by the officers
of the Grand Army, Woman's Relief
Corps, Sons of Veterans and Ladies'
Aid society. Music was rendered by a
quartet consisting of Misses Flora Bol
linger and Nutt and Messrs. Edwards
and Strebel. Their selections were.
"Under the Violets They're Sleeping,"
"Dropping From the Ranks, One by
One," and "Cover Them Over With
A feature of the program was the un
furling of a beautiful regulation flag
the gift of Mrs. Cora B. Kimball and
sons to John F. Godfrey post, for use
on the flagpole on the Grand Army plot
in the cemetery. Mrs. Kimball Is the
widow of William Kimball, who was a
captain ln the Second New York Harris
light cavalry and is buried in Mountain
View cemetery. The flag was unfurled
by George T. Downing, who was a mem
ber Of the same regiment In which Cap
tain, Kimball served.
After the reading of Lincoln's dedica
tion address at Gettysburg, there was
1 the usual firing of salutes over the
graves and then the mounds of both the
blue and the gray were decorated and
covered with a profusion of flowers.
The exercises at the tabernacle this
evening brought out one of the largest
audiences that has assembled In Pasa
dena for many months. The tabernacle
was packed, hardly a vacant seat re
maining at the hour set for the opening
of the program. On the platform were
the officers of the local relief corps, be
sides the singers, and the speaker of the
evening. Byron L. Oliver of Los Angeles.
The front of the platform was beauti
fully decorated with many varieties of
roses and the pulpit was draped with
"Old Glory," surrounding the portrait
of Abraham Lincoln. Frank D. Ste
vens, commander of John Godfrey post,
O. A. R., made a brief address of wel
come, ln the course of which he made a
pleasing: reference to the "boys who
wore the gray," voicing the sentiment
that those who fought against the.
union did so because they thought it
right, and that they were entitled to all
due credit for their honesty and sincer
ity of purpose.
The sentiment was vigorously ap
plauded by the audience. A hymn waa
then sung by the audience, after which
the invocation was pronounced by Rev.
W, 6. Cowan, past chaplain.
A' quartet, consisting of Mtr W. B.
Clapp. Mrs. James? McLachlan, Charles
A. Smith apd Dr. John T. Parker, then
sang "Oh, Starry Flag." Mies Addle L.
Murphy of Los Angelee then recited
"Tbe Blue and the Gray" very effec
tively, after which the quartet again
sang, this time "Let Them Sleep."
In a few well chosen words Capt. C.
M. Simpson then Introduced the speaker
of the evening, Mr. Byron L. Oliver.
Mr. Oliver made a pleaeilng reference,
In the early part of his address, to the
mothers of the land who Bent their sons
to do battle for their country, maintain
ing that It was not the men alone who
saved the country ln that critical time.
It was a struggle for humanity, rather
than for the Individual, resulting In the
freeing of 4,000,000 human being* from
bondage and wiping a great stain from
our country's history.
The speaker referred to the contrast
between the civil war in this country
and many of the wars of the past, par
ticularly as to the treatment of the
conquered at the close of the conflict
It was most creditable to this country
that when the war had closed the men
of the north could clasp hands with
those of the south, and all unite their
efforts ln the upholding of our common
Dr. John T. Parker then sang "The
Old Guard" in a good voice, followed by
the quartet in "Loyal and True." The
voices of the singers blended harmoni
ously, and their selections were all
highly appreciated by the audience,
"The Battle Hymn of the Republic"
was then recited by Miss Murphy, and
wae so well received by the audience
that she was recalled, giving as an en
core "The Ship of State. Mrs. W. B.
Clapp then sang a solo, "United," and
sang It so effectively that the audience
insited on having more, when Mrs. Clapp
graciously repeated the last verse.
All Joined ln singing "America," after
which the audience was dismissed with
the benediction.
AZUSA, May 31.—(Regular Correspond
ence.) Memorial services were held at
Azusa today with an Interest never be
fore evinced. At 9 o'clock a large con
course of old soldiers and patriotic people
marched to the Oakdale cemetery, carry
ing literally wagon loads of flowers. At
the entrance- to the burial grounds a line
of march was formed, headed by the vet
erans, and each comrade's grave was
covered with flowers. From there to the
Falrmount cemetery the line took its way.
Joined by larger delegations of citizens In
carriages and' fresh delegations, bearing
flowers for the graves of the brave boys
buried there. An address was made by
Rev. T. 8. Mren of Glendora, followed
by other appropriate exercises. In the
afternoon the services were continued at
Odd Fellows' hall in the presence of a large
congregation, the G. A. R. boys joining at
the hotel and marching to the hall to the
beat of military music. Taking the exer
cises as a whole, this town has never ob
served the day with anything approach
ing the interest manifested in this Me
morial occasion.
The San Bernardino Power company will
finish Its survey of the headwaters of the
San Gabriel river early ln June. The sur
veyors are now at work In Bear canyon,
having finished the North fork and Iron
fork lines. The survey was delayed two
weeks by the absence of Engineer Tinkle
at San Francisco, but it has been re
sumed and will soon be finished. The
power house is to be located at W. G.
Potter's ranch, about twelve miles from
Azusa, at which point the waters of the
tributaries above noted will be consoli
dated and turned down an Immense steel
pipe to the power wheels.
The Glendora Power company, still an
other organization formed to utilize the
waters of the San Gabriel river, has just
finished its survey. This company has
fifteen men at work, building a wagon road
from the West branch of the river up the
North fork to Crystal lake, a body of water
with a capacity of forty acres and a fall
of over a thousand feet In a little over a
mile. This, company claims unusual ad
vantages ln cheapness of construction of
Its works, and has taken all the necessary
steps to secure right of way on the govern
ment reserve and to the water for power
purposes. The Glendora company claim
to have a natural reservoir, capable of
running 100 miner's Inches continually,
nnd that the lake from which the water
will be drawn has no connection with ths
natural water shed of the river, and have
filed on the water for Irrigation, as well as
for power. Altogether, the prospects for
power development In the mountains north
of Azusa are exceedingly bright, and more
thant one of the propositions will mate
rialize before the end of the pear.
T. B. Perrlnger, who was badly bitten
by a rattlesnake at his mountain ranch,
north of Glendora, early last week. Is
considered out of danger, showing that the
bite of that venomous reptile Is not nec
essarily fatal. He, perhaps, owes his life
to the fact that he Immediately slashed
the wounded hand with a pocket knife,
squeezing out mucft of the poison with the
blood flowing from the wound made with
the knife. He also killed the snake and
bound the bitten h*nd with vitals of the
rattler before starting down the trial for
a doctor, but few believe that had any
thing to do with immunity from poisoning
The town* Is suffering from a scarcity
of water, with thousands of inches go
ing to waste down the river that might be
applied with a larger pipe system. It has
been demonstrated that one six-Inch out
let from the reservoir is no longer ade
quate 'for a town of 900 pepple. Many of
the otlsens heretofore opposed to incbrpor
atlorii are now aligning themselves ln Its
favor. All the town lacks Is a flrst-class
pipe system, os It has more water than
any other place of Its size In Southern
California, but not the faculties for ap
plying it.

spondence.) About twenty years ago Vir
gil Smith was killed on Orangethorpe ave
nue by a horse falling on him. and was
burled in the Anaheim cemetery. Some
four months since the mother died and
was burled at Downey. The father de
cided to have the remains of the boy taken
up and placed by the side of his mother,
and arranged with W. J. Smith of Orange
thorpe avenue to take up the remains
and ship them to Downey this morning.
Securing the services of Undertaker
Backs, Mr. Smith went out to the cem
etery and had the grave opened, but not
a vestige of the remains, coffin or any
thing else was there to show that it had
ever been occupied. The only theory is
that the body was taken out immediately
by grave robbers. After being burled, a
nice tombstone had been put up by the
sorrowing parents, and for twenty years
has this empty grave been decorated by
loving hands.
A great many people visited the cemetery
today and decorated the graves of those
who wore the blue and the gray.
Where the ceremonies were given at the
cemetery the decorations were elegant, be
