Jurist Pays . igh Tribute to" Great
Emancipator at Centennial Cele
;*.- bration Held at Santa
SANTA MONICA, Feb. 12.-The students of
the high school were addressed by Judge George
H. Hutton at the Lincoln centennial celebra
tion at the Lincoln school auditorium today.
Judge Hutton said m part: ;■
- Lincoln was born one hundred
years ago today in a backwoods shanty at
Hardin county, Kentucky. Far distant Cali
fornia, was' then a Spanish province under
Governor Jose Joaquin de Arigalla, but prac
tically speaking in the control of the* pastoral
missions and mission priests. Lincoln's par
ents and well informed people in the neighbor
hood had scarcely if at all heard the name
California, and yet the legislature of that same
California has this year passed a law making
the birthday of Abraham Lincoln a legal holi
day throughout the state, to the end that men
and women, old and young, may read and re
flect upon his greatness. . , ' ■
"And why is this? Because Abraham Lin
coln was a man called of God to forever quiet
the right and title of humanity in the practical
enjoyment of the declaration that all men are
created with an equal right to liberty and
with an equal right to the pursuit of happi
ness; for, strange and incomprehensible as it
may appear, yet it is true, , that before his
time men had been so distrustful of this great
principal of the philosophy of human history as
to expend the major part of the energies of
mankind in enslavement rather than the libera
tion of the human race..-.
"From time immemorial, generation ,after
generation sat stupidly by and allowed its own
enslavement, and the man who endeavored to
break his own fetters or the fetters of his fel
lowmen was treated as a' common enemy of
mankind. And Lincoln was murdered because
he would save not only the negro race but all
mankind from slavery, v
"In a large sense we cannot dedicate or con-
secrate this day to his memory. , His work con
secrated his memory far above our power to
add or detract. The world will forget what
men say of him. It can never forget what he
did. It is for us, the living, rather, to be dedi
cated and consecrated to the unfinished work
which Me so nobly carried or..
"Forflet it be remembered that the great bat
tle of human freedom is not yet ended: the
victory is not yet won, and the duty still re
mains to the scholar, the sage and the states
man to give the best of his life and genius to
the work of breaking down and not imposing
those bulwarks and barriers which supersti
tion have reared as the ramparts of civiliza
tion, to .the end that this nation under God
shall have a new birth of freedom, and that
government of the people, by tlje people and
for the people shall not perish from the earth."
the centenary of the birth of President
Abraham Lincoln, generally was ob
served in this city. The* principal
event of ,the day was the large mass
meeting held this evening at the opera
house and addressed by Hon. Clyde
Bishop of Santa Ana. The meeting
was under the auspices of the G. A. R.
of the county, and delegations were
present from Colton, Redlands and
other surrounding towns. Local speak
ers and musicians also took part.
This afternoon the flag raising oc
curred at the new Elks club, the flag
having been presented by Mrs. S. L,.
Goweli. Addresses were made by R.
B. Goodcell, John Brown, jr., Dr. G.
R. Owen, exalted ruler of the Elks, and
ex-Senator E. C. Seymour of Highland.
A feature of this event was the attend
ance of about twenty-five veterans and
others who had voted for Lincoln for
president. x ,
The day also was observed in the
public schools, an elaborate program
being held at,the high school where an
address was given by Hon. E. C. Sey
mour, also Professors Sturges and Bee
man of the faculty, and Ben Harrison,
president of the student body.
SAN PEDRO, Feb. 12.-Despite the heavy
rain and a strong gale which was raging this
morning at 9:30 o'clock, the high school cele
brated the centennial of Lincoln's birthday.
A large audience listened to the speakers with
hearty appreciation. The program was ex
cellent and well rendered. / y.
Minnie Dolen, essay. 'The Part Lincoln
Played in the Drama 'of the Civil War." The
young woman showed much original thought.
"Lincoln's Place in History." given by El
len Hurt, also-indicated much study and full
appreciation of "the subject.
"Tenting on the Old Camp Ground," ren
dered by thD selected boys' glee club, was
well rendered, and the \-eteran soldiers in the
audience could not conceal their emotion as
this old, familiar song thrilled them and
brought vivid scenes of army life to their
memory. . . ... t
The song. "Recessional," eighth grdae, was
rendered beautifully.
The presentation of the Lincoln memorial
tablet and "bust by Harry F. Phillips, presi
dent of th? class of 1908, was impressive, and
the acceptance of the gift by Brown Hippie,
president of the student fcodv-, interesting and'
well delivered and thoroughly enjoyed.

The president was frequently inter
rupted by applause. Mrf Roosevelt
confined himself closely to his manu
script, except at the beginning he de
parted from it to make reply to com
plimentary allusions to himself by Gov
ernor Folk. .''
The president applied the first trowel
ful of the mortar that will hold the
cornerstone in its place.
Under the stone was laid a metallic
box containing copies of the constitu
tion of the United States and important
historic documents, some of which were
placed in it by the president, and oth
ers by other members of the party. •
Among the contributors to this treas
ure were Clarence Mackay, Robert J.
Collier and Richard Lloyd Jones of New
York, all of whom have participated
actively in the movement for the
memorial building. - '
To an aged negro, Isaac T. Mont
gomery, of Mound Bayou. Miss., who is
said to have been a slave of Jefferson
Davis, president of the Confederacy,
was assigned the appropriate task of
depositing in the box a copy of Lin
coln's emancipation proclamation, and
in doing so he made-a brief speech in
which he refer.red to himself "as one of
the former millions of slaves to whom
Lincoln gave freedom, and the repre
sentative of ten millions of grateful
negro citizens."
The president boarded his train for
Louisville at'3:4s p. m., expecting to'
arrive at Washington about 2 p. m. to
