of the Daughters of the Revolution, and j
guests in assembly hall, Fine Arts build

pulses were manifested in the applause
which greeted the speakers and the sing

programme was rendered. The room was
biightened by the colors of scores of '
flags which draped the walls from the ;
ceiling. The speakers of the day were ;

command steamed out through the Gold
en Gate from San Francisco, in which the
flag was the most prominent feature; of
seeing myriads of American llegs waving
over Hawaii, which was not then annex

sighting- the stars and stripes floating
over Dewey's fleet in Manila bay. He
! told of the characteristics and habits of
' the people of the Philippines,

ed there, why it was planted there, its
. mission there, and its results for hu

After consultation with the attorneys
and with the judge advocate general's of

pices, which will be maintained out of the
j customs receipts from Cuban ports. The

in enforcing the customs regulations.
