ONE of the most interesting char acters of the Native Sons' pa rade to-day will be Napoleon Bo naparte Smith, the man who hauled down the Bea^r Flag at Sutter Fort and who assisted In the raising of the Stars and Stripes fur ever over thfl territory of California. He Is a very old man who has long passed the allotted term of man's life, but he is hearty and lively while bearing his eighty-three years. "I came down here at the urgent re quest of the Native Sons' Committee." saici Mr. Smith, "but I do not kr.ow whether or l.ot they will make a monkey of mo in the parane. I was one of the founders of this great city and thought I knew something ar>out it, bit I am lost and thoroughly afraid to move about. It gives me pleasure to say that I hauled down the Bear Flag at Sutttr Fort, and assisted in the raising of Old Glory. "It Is not generally known that the rais ing of the fli'g was the result of the ar rest of myself, my brother ant? a friend as spies at the Presidio. It was a case of no foreigners and we were told that if we would swear that we were Unglish sub jects we would be liberated.

What I mean is that the time came when there was no consideration for the rights of Ca! ifornians. and the consequence was that we pulled down the I<ear Flag- of .the Cal ifornia republic and hoisted tne Str\r3 and Stripes. At that time Fremont nad b~en ordered out of the country and was on his way to Oregon, when Litutenant Gil lesple brought the dispatch which in formed us that war had been declared with Mexico. Then up went the American flusj. to stay. The rest is common history.

The Palace Hotel headquarters of the general committee was crowded all day yesterday by Native Sons, who called to pay their respects to old-time acquaint ances on the committee. There were present all day long members of the pa rade committee to assist Colonel Boxton, the chief of staff, in giving information, in regard to positions In line and telling marshals of divisions and aids what they are expected to do thi3 morning. It is the intention of the grand marshal to move immediately upon the giving of the signal, and nil organizations not in position it the appointed time will be relegated to the end of the procession. JWs variously estimated that the thirty *«f divisions, with the numerous floats, win take from three and a half to four hours in passing a given point. The grand marshal and chief of staff have in structed the marshals to have all car riages, excepting four, driven two abreast so as to curtail the length of the proces sion, and no formation will be allowed to march in less than columns of four. Whenever practicable all organizations will be required to march eight abreast. Throughout the afternoon and evening the rooms of the Fresno Parlor, In the Lick House, were thronged with mem bers of the organization.

Roed ir.g, v.ho stands 6 feet l'/fc inches In height, and is built in proportion, will lead the members on the line of march. He will un doubtedly attract attention by reason of the monster sombrero he will wear and the huge cane he will twirl.

The con cert closed with the march "Bohemiar Life." » WHERE THE GLAD HAND IS FOUND At the conclusion of General Barnes' address the Golden Gate Park band struck up the familiar "Star? and Stripes." The selection proved a fitting one for the moment, for tho pulse of the vast throng was at a high tension of en tnusiasm, and it prepared the way for what was to follow, an overture, "Immor tality." dedicated to Mr. Spreckels by A. Fpadlna. The piece ended with the "Star ppangled Banner." a refrain that brought every man with raised hat to his feet. At the conclusion of the piece Mr. Spreck elfs stepped to the front of the platform and gTapped the bandmaster's hand warmly.
