SANTA MONICANS KEEP FES- i

THOUSANDS THRONG TO CITY AT

United States Is Oberved at
Seaco-ast Resort by Im.
Pride In California formed the
foundation of a brilliant celebration of
Admission, day in Santa Monica, but
pride in lier own part in forming a
basis for state pride was the keystone.
Admission clay was chosen by the
beach city for the dedication of the
recently completed municipal pleasure
pier, built of reinforced concrete, mani
festly a thing of beauty and guaran
teed to remain almost forever.
On the site of an ancient wooden pier,
long sinue worn and torn away by the
ekmenta, after standing but four years,
the splendid modern structure stands.
It Is most strikingly modern indeed,
for in t|iis matter of a reinforced con
crete pier Santa Monica leads all the

folk and visitors began to gather in
front 01. the city hall in Santa Monica,
where the double celebration was to
begin with the start of a parade at
9:30 o'clock. About the approaches to
the pieir, too, crowds early began to
iorm, l^sld back from the pier itself by
a flimsy ribbon of blue and gold
stretched vibrating In the wind across
the enti ance. This nominal bar, ex
pressive of the plans and wishes of the
committee, was sufficient for the pur
pose with the greater part of the
crowd, I)Ut, for complete security of
the ordq r of the day, a couple of po
lice officers were detailed to guard the
At the entrance before the formal
opening by Mayor T. H. Dudley,
throu gh the cutting of the ribbon, an
address of dedication was made by Lee
C. G$ tes of Los Angeles, who, in tha
name of the municipality of Santa
Monic! a, builder and owner of the pier,
preset ited it to the people of California,
of the nation and of all the world.

In. a trial of a "bootlegger" In
Western Kentucky recently, a
witness testified that he had
purchased some "squirrel" whis

court. "Yes, you know, that
kind that makes you talk nutty
and want to climb trees."
Liquors are not the only
things that intoxicate; men have
been very frequently intoxi
cated by success. I have seen
salesmen ruined because the
letters received from the firm
were too complimentary. Be
ci use your firm wishes to be
gt nerous and appreciative, don't
assume that you are the whole

am 1 don't think too long about
it, for that kind of intoxication
is iisually fatal. It's lot better
to go ahead and make good. Do
you know why people are losing
positions by the hundreds and
by tie thousands.? I'll tell you,
they are not loyal. No man can
take pay from both sides and do

many fairly good stores they
work what they call the P. M.
or Premium System; they take
a line of goods that are not soil
ing well, either mark them up a
dollar or two, or if they are
marked Mgh enough, as they
'often are, they give the sales
men one to three dollars P. M.
or spiff to sell them. The sales
man then sees nothing but that
piece of money staring him in
the face; what does he care
whether the style is right for
you or the fit perfect; he wants
to make a few dollars for him
self and show that kind of a
"boss" what a wonder he is. The
Old Man doesn't tolerate that
sort of thing. He takes our
head men, shows them the enor
mous amount of money he has
expended in publicity, fixtures
and business building and shows
them that every customer cost
him, say $20 (for the good will
of a business is worth far more
than the merchandise), and ex
plains that if they drive a cus
tomer a day away from the
store, they are just losing $20 a
day of hia hard-earned money.

at the same time we are mindful of the
fact that the state of California today
is fifty-nine years old."
He spoke of the splendid citizen
| ship of the state, and of the promise
of a greater citizenship to be, and con
gratulated the present and the coming
generation on the possession and the
heritage which is theirs. Especially
favored, he declared, is that region
| comprising 44,000 spuare miles, rimme.l
by mountains and by the sea, known
j as Southern California.
"Here we have gathered," the speak
' er continued, "to witness the triumph
'• of an art which for thirty-six hundred
! years has been known but not applied
by the engineers of the world. Some
of the older buildings of Egypt are of
I concrete construction. We are carry
i ing it here into a new form, for the
J benefit, for the pleasure, for the pro-
I tection of our people. We feel an add
ed pride In the presence, of representa
tives from our fleet, the fleet which
guarantees the peace of the world."
He dwelt at some length on the en
terprise and public spirit of the people
of Santa Monica, in the undertaking
I and achievement of the project, and
I prophesied that the example set would
be followed by other beach cities every
where In the civilized world.
Cuts Guarding Ribbon
Immediately on the close of the dl
fiatory address, Mayor Dudley cut into
guarding ribbon, and the great crowd
that had gathered flowed out on th"
pier in two streams, between which
marched the four companies of men
from the warships, 250 in number, as
a guard of honor for the mayor and
city officials who led the parade to the
end of the pier.
The water was rough beneath, with
a choppy sea. and the waves struck
hard at concrete piles of the massive
structure over which 7000 persons were
walking, but neither the waves be
neath nor the hurrying crowds above
could cause more than the slightest
perceptible jar to the steel and con

late in the evening, when the visitors
were ordered from the pier to allow of
preparations for the fireworks, the
groups remained, talking of the struc
ture they had come to see. In the

ing through the crowd, crying an extra

which must have caused excitement
on Wall street, New York, but scarcely
caused a ripple on Santa Monica's

Column Forms Front of City Hall
The column formed in front of the
city hall and marched by way of
Third street and Arizona avenue to
the entrance of the pier. The line was
led by Marshal W. H. Atwlll and Aid
E E. Bundy. Four cnmpaniea of blue-
Jackets from the cruisers Albany aiul
St. Louis followed, in command of
Lieutenant Commander R. M. Oriswold,
with Midshipman Rashley of the Al
bany as adjutant.
The companies ot sailors, two from
the Albany and two from the St. Louis,
were commanded as follows: First
i ompany, Ensign Ekland of the cruiser
Albany; second, EnsiKn Delano of the
cruiser St. Louis; third, Ensign Bab

commanded much admiration as they
deployed, inarched and countermarched,
breaking from a column of platoons
to street column, which is the riot for
mation, anl back to column of pla
toons and finally to column of fours.
With sports and games, music and
dancing, from early morning till quite
late at night, the members of the Mer
chants' exchange and the thousands
who joined with them in their Venice
picnic yesterday, celebrated the fifty
ninth anniversary of the admission of
California as a state of the Union.
There were two baseball games, and
many contests of great variety, In
which druggists, grocers, butchers, ci
gar dealers and hay dealers vied with
each other in tests of strength and
skill, on land and water.
Shortly after noon the officers of the
fleet, together with other invited guests
of the entertainment committee, re
paired to the Elks' club house, where
a luncheon was served, presided over
by Judge George H. Hutton as toast
master. Covers had been laid for more
than 250, and lunch was served to near
ly 200 persons. The long tables, five
in number, were set on the lawn of
the club house grounds, which was sur
rounded by a canvas wall for the oc
casion. The toastmaster and speakers
occupied the porch cf the club house.
Mayor Dudley delivered a brief ad
dress of welcome, announcing Judge
Hutton as toastmaster. The judge
arose and, with an upward glance at
the heavy canopy qf fog hanging low
in the sky, said that he scarcely dared
apologize for the weather or say it was
unusual, as he had heard that the vis
itors from the warships had been told
that very thing in every port of the
world, artd would laugh nt hearing it

Lee C. Gates then was called upon
to speak to the toast "The Navy."
He spoke of the beginning of the

Toast Visiting Guests
E J Wehrle spoke to the toast,
"Visiting Civil Guests," and made
special reference to the value of the
visits of tourists in great numbers,
statinK that 100,000 tourists ciime to
Los Angeles last year, spending ap
proximately $25,000,000. It was fitting,
he declared, that much of tins money
should be spent in adding to the at
tractions of Southern California, to
make it even more pleasant for "the
stranger within our gates." This
formed an introduction to a glowing
tribute to Santa Monica for the build
ing of the pier.
Mayor Klngsbury of Redlands was
the next speaker. He talked in lighter
vein, constantly interrupted by spon
taneous bursts of delighted applause.
"I thought that pier was a fine thing
from the first," he declared, "but I
failed to realize its full significance
until I heard Lee Gates talking about
it. Then, at last, I understood that
the eyes of the world are upon it,
and that Its fame is bound to reach
even unto the DOlth pole."
Referring to the preceding speaker's
remarks on the strangers, he said:
"I'm not so very much of a stranger,
but I feel myself very decidedly with
in the gat*s. We have tourists up
our way, too. We say up there that
we have two crops of great value —
tourists and citrus fruits. Down this
way you haven't any citrus fruits to
amount to anything, but you get as
much from the tourists as we get from
Thomas H. James, city engineer of
Santa Monica, talked of the building
of the pier. Fourteen plans were sub
mitted, he said, and carefully exam
ined before one finally was chosen.
He found cause for congratulation in
the fact that the cost of construction
was considerably less than the
amount appropriated for the purpose
by vote of the citizens of Santa Mon
A. Stutzer, the contractor, was in
troduced by Judge Hutton, but con
tented himself with bowing. He was
roundly applauded, for most of the
visitors, as well as the residents of
Santa Motiiea, knew of the difficulties
he had contended with and overcome in
the construction of the pier.
Soon after 1 o'clock the sports be
gan. The first event, a 100-yard swim
ming race for ladies, was won by
Emma Willis, Lyba Sheffield second.
A 440-yard swimming race for boys
under 16 followed, won by Vie. Hos
tetter of Ocean Park, with George
Carey second and Cliff. Bowes third.
The half-mile swimming race for
ladles was won by Dorothy Newkirk,
Lyba Sheffield second and Emma Willis
The next event was to have been a
boat race for cutters of the cruisers
Albany and St. Louis, but it was
found that the cutters of the two ships
were not of the same length. The mile
race was rowed in two cutters of the
St. Louis, both manned from that ship.
The time was ten minutes flat.
The half-mile swimming race for pro
fessionals proved an exciting: affair.
There were four starters, but only two
finished. It was a fiercely-contested
race, in a choppy sea. In the last
thirty yards the men, who had seemed
to be putting all the strength they
had into the struggle, made a last des
perate spurt and came exhausted to
the float, F. K. Holborow winning
from George Wilde by about three feet.
The time, considered good in such a
i-hoppy sea, was 17 minutes and 14
seconds for the half mile.
The mile swimming race for ama
teurs, in which a gold medal was the
■prize, was won in 35:48 by G. McMan
nus, with H. Taylor second.
The surf boat race, from shore to
shore around the pier, was won by-
Walter Barton and George Freeth.
The last of the scheduled events to
be pulled off was the 100-yard dash,
swimming, for a gold medal, a silver
cup as a second prize. William T.
O'Mally won, G. Watkins second.
Fireworks End Celebration
The celebration closed with a display
of fireworks and a tableau vivant rep
resenting a conflict of Neptune and his
sea monsters against Queen Santa
Monica, in which the former Is routed
by the strength of the new pier.
The pier is unique in many respects,
being an Innovation both in its man
ner of construction and its ownership
The structure Is 1600 feet In length,
With three (T's) placed ut interval*
of 500 feet for strongthning purposes.
The piles average eighteen inches In
thickness and vary In length accord-
ing to the depth of water in which
they are sunk.
The largest pre over ten tons In
weigth. In constructing the piles, the
sloping: hillsides of the lots in the
neighborhood of Colorado avenue were
requisitioned for a pile factory. Huge
forms cylindrical in shape wore laid
on the slopes and the reinforcing rods
together with a large pipe in the cen
ter, and the concrete poured in from
After standing a sufficient time for the
mixture to set the huge sticks were
lifted by a large derrick and hauled
by tram car to the spot were they were
to be set. After being placed upright,
a hose was attached to the upper end
of the pipe which extended through
the center of the pile and a jet of
water forced through to the bed of the
ocean. The sand was thus washed
away from the base of the stick and it
settled into position by its own weight.
After the piles were thus driven,
forms were placed on their upper ends
and the stringers of the pier were
formed by pouring concrete into them,
reinforcing rods having been placed in
the center and welded to those of the
Angeleno Drew Designs
The structure is built from designs
drawn by Edwin H. Warner of Los
Angeles and has been put up under
his sole supervision. A. Stutzer was
the contracter and much is due to him
for his grit in completing the pier in
the face of seemingly almost unsur
mountable obstacles. The huge steel
derricks which were used for the
handling of the plies were wrecked
repeatedly, while the storms of tha
past carried away portions of the falsa
work time after time and on the oc
casion of the severe storm of last De
cember, toog away the entire end, to
gether with the derrick and pile driver.
The time occupied in construction
was a little over a year and the com
plete cost, $87,000. It is the first pier
of its kind and promises to be the in
auguration of a very material reform
in the construction of wharves on the
It is owned by the municipality of
Santa Monica, bonds having been voted
for the purpose and a committee of the
city council are in direct control of
all concessions and privileges. At this
early date many Junketing tours have
been formed from other cities on the
coast for the purpose of viewing the
structure with a view of obtaining
ideas and doing likewise when wharves
are to be built.

STILL IN RUNNING
Walter Travis Meets Unexpected De
feat at Hands of Gardner in Na.
tional Amateur Golf Cham,
WHEATON, 111., Sept. 9.—Four west
erners will contest In the semi-finals of
the National amateur gold champion
ship tomorrow as a result of sensation
al golf today. They are:
H. Chandler Egan of Exmoor and
Chas. Evans, jr., of Edgewater, Mason
Phelps of Midlothian and Robert Gard
ner of Hinsdale.
Walter Travis, three times winner of
the championship, went down to defeat
before young Gardner despite his splen
did golf of the afternoon. Mason
Phelps, with an advantage of four
holes over Paul Hunter on the morning
round, had considerable difficulty with
his opponent in the afternoon but won.
The matches between Chandler Egan
and Ned Sawyer went 38 holes before
Egan won. The morning round re
sulted 2 up in Sawyer's favor, with
medal scores of 74 for Sawyer and 76
for Egan. In the afternoon It took
Sawyer 78 strokes and Egan 73. Egan
scored the match in the eighth hole in
the afternoon and took the lead at tho
next hole, only to lose it at the
eleventh. Sawyer got threes on the
tenth, fourteenth and sixteenth holes,
the latter following approach shots of
75 yards that all but holed out.
Egan halved the twelfth in four, one
stroke under bogey after what looked
like an almost impossible shot out otj
The next holo was even more sensa
tional, Sawyer badly topping his brasle
shot following a perfect drive, but it
lay we.ll and he sent the sphere at leant
Egan holed his put on four, two
strokes under bogey.
Sawyer was one up playing the 17th
hole and his anxiety there cost him
the game. He putted too hard, the ba'.l
rolled f«rtir feet beyond the cup and
Sawyer missed the return putt, taking
five for the home.
