FAIRS' BOOSTERS EDITORS' HOSTS Fifty-Two Newspapers Repre sented at Assembly Held in Santa Barbara ALL GIVEN 'THIRD DEGREE' San Diego and San Francisco Exposition Promoters Enter tain Southern Cal. Press W. R. McSTAY SANTA BARBARA, Sept. 17.—The first great gun in a campaign against New Orleans to wrest from her the honor of holding the Panama-Pacific exposition of 1915 was fired today at the Hotel Potter, when a convention of Southern California editors mot and agreed to support San Francisco in her fight to have and to hold the great lair which will celebrate the opening of the canal across the isthmus. The heads of fifty-two newspapers south of the Tehachapi arrived in this city at 11:40 this morning. The dele gation, which was under the leadership of D. C. Collier ,the prime mover of the effort to secure an exposition for the city of San Diego to run con- Jointly with the one planned for San Francisco, was met at the depot by Mayor Clio Lloyd and heads of city departments, who, on bshalf of the citizens of the Channel city, extended a hearty welcome. The scribes, led by a band, marched to the Hotel Potter, headed by James McNab, San Fran cisco's exposition chief, who was hand cuffed to Collier. At the hotel the third degree was ad ministered to all of the visiting writ ers. The third degree, it may be re marked, was fearfully and wonderfully planned. One by one the victims were led into one of the hotel ballrooms, where a copy of the proclamation of the mayor of Santa Barbara was read and a committee of citizens caried out its dictates. The editors were released from the room penniless. One fortunate visitor found 5 cents on reaching- the corridor; this great wealth was no ticed and he was hurried back into the chamber of poverty and relieved of his Jast nickel. Mayor Lloyd's proclamation follows: MAYOR Mt-OYWS PBOOLAJUTIOM To tiie Citizens of Santa Barbara: Whereas, it appears that our fair city will on the seventeenth day of September, in the year of our Lord, rJIO, be stormed by a party of editors, exposition boosters and the like; and Whereas, their absence from their native hearths is at the direc tion of the citizens of San Diego and San Francisco; and Whereas, it appears that the said citizens are and will be re sponsible for their acts, therefore, 1 Clio Lloyd, mayor of the city of Santa Barbara, do decree: That as guests of the city, the freedom of the city shall be theirs without restraint; they shall be permitted to roam at will under the supervision of the chief of po lice, but, Whereas, it appears that certain of them are possessed of divers forms of counterfeit and wooden money, it is decreed that no citizen of Santa Barbara shall give them food or shelter, assistance, barter with them in any manner, except as shall be specified by the repre tatlves of the cities of Sai^ Di ego and San Francisco, their hosts, and guarantors. And it is further ordained and decreed that they shall in no way be molested In the event of riotous conduct, but shall bo turned over to the special constabulary of the exposition companies.

'CHAIRMAN WAS HISSED, NOT ME,' SAYS HUTCHISON Attorney Writes About Disturb ance at Labor Temple Attorney Edward L. Hutchison has sent The Herald the following version of the disturbance in Labor temple meeting at wl.'ch President Diaz of Mexico was being lauded. Mr. Hutchi son says it is the correct one—that the chairman of the meeting got the hisses and he (Hutchison) escaped them. The letter follows: "Editor Herald: I notice by today's Herald that your report of the meet ing of the Mexican people indicates that there was trouble at the Union Labor temple on Maple avenue during the services of the celebration of the independence of Mexico. There was, but the whole trouble was caused by rowdies, or worse, when the chairman mentioned the name of President Diaz of Mexico. It was evident that the interruption was prearranged. Three of the disturbers sat on the front row of seats near the orchestra. The other three sat in the middle of the gallery. They were noisy until grabbed by the police and yanked out of the building. "No further trouble occurred during the entire afternoon. I stand by all that I said as to the great work ac complished by Diaz. Yours truly, "EDWARD L. HUTCHISON."
