He has one of the invitations to the first Admission day ball. Mr. Cornell has many recollections of the great fire which occurred in ' San Francisco on December 24, 1S49. At this fire an ensine that Martin Van Buren had made to Irrigate his estate In New York and which had bfen brought to Cal ifornia to be used to pump out mines, was used. Immediately after the fire San Francisco's first fire company was organ ized and amonr the li^st members was Mr. Cornell. He is now S2 years old. but as light-hearted and as gay as any youth. Daniel T. Ryan. John S. Partridge. DANIEL. A. RYAN. CHAIRMAN OF THE COMMITTEE ON LITER ARY EXERCISES, HAS PREPARED AN INTERESTING PROGRAMME FOR MONDAY AND. WITH HIS COMMITTEE. WILL. WORK WONDER3 TO KEEP THE FESTIVITIES GAYLY MOVING. SECRETARY PART RIDGE IS HIS RIGHT-HAND MAN IN THE GOOD WORK. AS DEPICT ED ABOVE. This parlor will parade about 200 strong. It will have its own band and a striking float planned by T. J. McGowan. an en thusiastic member of the committee. The Lyceum Theater at 310 O'Farrell street has been secured by this parlor as its headquarters. It will be elaborately dec orated, and Groth's band will render choice music during afternoons and even ing's. An Interesting feature of the parade will be the represntation of an emigrant train with scouts, packers and pack mules <rcssirsr tho plains in '43. headed by Cap tain "Jack" Crawford, the poet «cout and late chief of scouts in tho United States army. Chairman Unwell of the invitation com mittee requests participation in the events of the celebration by all pioneers who by reason of not b»-IonKirg to the Pioneer Society may rot have received special in vitations. All pioneers will be made wel come at a reception to be given by the Native Sons in N. S. G. W. Hall on Tues day from 1 to 6 p. m. The local soe'ety of Pioneers with the visiting pioneers will marcb to the reception hall in a body. The San Jose parlors will present two elaborate floats In the parade. One will be In the form of a pyramid and will be composed of fruits, wines and olive oil contributed by merchants, -packers and t'ne Quito farm. A second float will be in tho form of a shell with swans, and will carry twenty Native Daughters of San Jose Parlor costumed to represent various mythological characters. It will be drawn by four black horses. The grounds at Fort Mason at the foot of Van Ness avenue, -where the fireworks will be set off. are ample to accommodate the Immense concourse of people that will attend tho display without crowding: and all may have an unobstructed view. Cars of the California, Hyde, Union, Fillmore, Polk and Butter street lines will land* pas sengers within a reasonable distance of the grounds. An erroneous Impression Is abroad In some quarters that tho fireworks displays have been obtained from the East. It is worthy to note, however, that all of tho llreworks purchased by the various com mittees for the celebration are California made and the product of the factory of a local company. A display will be given that will favorably compare with the most elaborate Eastern productions at much less cost, and all who will atend will feel more than repaid for their time I and trouble. The bulletin committee has arranged for r~^\ AN FRANCISCO is prepared to honor the fiftieth anniversary of the statehood of Calif or \ nia. The city is adorned as it never zvas before in its history. The streets have been con- V J verted into avenues of gay color and light. Market street is arched with thousands of elec tric globes, ready to shed their brilliance in the darkness of the night. Miles of green branches, twisted into ropes of brilliant green, stretch from pole to pole along the main thorough fare of the cit\. Standards of flags erected upon poles zcave for miles from the ferry to where Market street fades into the sloping hills that lead to the Twin Peaks. Business-houses throughout the city are in gay attire for the splendid carnival. The Stars and Stripes and the Bear Flag have companion places of honor in the elaborate, beautiful adornment which patriotic citizens have given to the town. Last night a 'merry throng was on the streets. A great mass of people moved slowly, laugh ingly, gayly along the thoroughfares. There arc thousands of strangers in the city, draivn from evety part of the State. They are here to join with San Franciscans in honoring an occasion which •will be without parallel in their history and which it is not likeiy they will see again. They arc here to share in the multitude of festivities which the Native Sons and scores of other organiza tions have provided. Last night they received a suggestion of the magnificent decoration which the city has made. In an instant a brilliant flash of light shot the full length of Market street. Thousands of electric lights, red, white and blue, blazed upon a dead background of the night. The scene zcas inspiring in its gorgcousness of color. A roar of admiration greeted it front the thou sands of citizens and strangers who saw in the test which had been, made' something '-of what the completion of effects zvill be. To-day the fete will practically begin. Business men will close . their ¦ houses, men of all classes will cease their labors and join in the carnival. San Francisco will give itself up to fes tivity, and the fiftieth birthday of the State will be celebrated as no event zcas ever celebrated be fore in the metropolis. ¦ THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL.
