The members «nd their guests assembled in the ball- j loom, one end of which was fitted up as a stage. The musical burlesque was cred itably presented nnd did great credit to all who took part in It. If the club should ever decide to send tho "com pany" on the road It would be sure to at tract crowded houses.

The bur leFque was written and staged by local professionals nnd the handling of the r 'mob scene" was as realistic as th<» one shown by Henry Miller. After the presentation of the burlesque the members and their friends sat down to an elaborate banquet In the supper room. As the, clock struck the hour of midnight, telling of the end of the nine teenth century and the birth of the twen tieth century, all the guests rose to their feet and In bumpers of wine drank to the new era. A beautiful Illusion was dis closed to view on a small staare set In a corner of the supper-room. Master Nor man Phillips, drrssed as Father Time, was seen on a bicycle riding toward a r-cst marked 1900. As the clock sounded the last stroke of midnight the scene was changer! to a country road, on which , a young girl In an automobile was starting out for thejtwentieth century post. A ball followed the supper. Professor Rosner of the Orpheum supplied the dance music, that for the burlesque being furnished by. Professor Leo Brook. The ladles who are prominently identi fied with the Red Cross Society were peated'on the platform: Mayor Phelan, Colonel Rawles, commandant of the Pre sidio, Colonel Girard of the Presidio Hos pital, Rabbi Voorsanger, .

When darkness came people hastened from all parts 'of the city to Market street. Armed with horns, lattles, trumpets, noise-provoking Instru ments in all their variety, men, women and children left their homes and flocked to the main thoroughfares of the city. On Market Btreet, in one great, swaying, noisy, gooJ- humored mass of hu manity, they met. Some were in mas queradp. in grotesque, odd costumes. In the fantastic livery which told that for one night «t lea«t they intended to forget the Eeriou.T.esy of life and treat it as a farce. Boys, bubbling with fun. marched the street?, yelling, shouting, cheering, beat ing improvised tomtoms, blowing horns, swinging ratties, exploding bombs and wishing to every one in their path a hap py New Year. Girls, flushed with excite ment, exhilarated by the myriad, happy. Jolly faces that greeted them, elb.owed their way along the streets, pre-empted the wagon waye. gave noisy greeting to friend and Ptrangerand accepted in lauj»h i:iK good nature the ear-splitting replies to their caiutations. fitald men of affairs passed -along the streets blowing horns with all the se riousness of an affair of state. Gray haired women played the pranks of their grandchildren and laughingly received the showers of flour which followed their greetings, noisy, startling and indiscrim inate. San Francisco had forgotten its classes and castes, and in one homoge neous whole was taking a night off. And at midnight— at the moment when one century and its thoughts passed into history, and another with its hopes was born— pandemonium reigned. From the ships in the harbor, from the factories and the Bhops, came the deep-toned blasts of whistles. Bells were clanging and' there wa« the roar and rumble and bewildering confusion of countless sounds. With one impulse the crowds in the streets stopped, greetings and good-wishes were exchanged and for a moment at least there were no distinctions of class or position In San Frarocisco. While thousands of merry-makers, mas queraders, boys, girls, men and women, thronged the streets other thousands crowded the sanctuaries and meeting houses of the city. In churches devotees saw the old century go and the new one come. With prayer, invocation and sa cred music the night was passed. Socie ties, clubs and associations kept the watch of the night and in re r velry and good fellowship and good cheer celebrated a night exceptional in Its Bentlment. Per haps in the history of San Francisco no other celebration possessed bo much of unique Interest as did this, in which tht, people of the city gave. good speed to a departing century and welcome to the coming. ? • - ¦ The auditorium of the T.

WELCOMES THE NEW CENTURY California and Martha "Washington councils of the Daughters of Liberty held a watch meeting In the Shiels building last night at which there were a large number of young people who sought ref uge from the nolae of horns on the street. There was an impromptu programme of music, song and dancing. A great deal of merriment was created by the young men asking ladies aa they entered the hall to walk up to the secretary's desk to reg ister and then making them pass under a bough of mistletoe and demanding the penalty. The affair was managed by Miss Ella Crawford, Miss Laura Cantus, Miss Minnie Sproul, C. T. Qulrey. C. Johnson and H. Mqnig of California Council, and Mrs. \Y. E. L# Dieu, Miss E. Moore and Miss G. Diemer of Martha Washington Council. At midnight there was a wishing of happy New Year and the blowing of horns that equaled the noise of the street. Ix>yal Rebekah Lodge also had a watch meeting In Odd Fellows* Hall. At first it was decided to have a quiet meeting, but the young people did not think a Quaker meeting was in keeping with the enthusiasm of the close of the year, so they started a dance and kept It up till midnight. Pocahontas Council of the Degree of Pocahontas, Improved Order of Red Men, .also joined In the festivities by having a lancing party to celebrate the departure /if the old and to welcome the new year. The hall was crowded to Us utmost and all had a very enjoyable time until the proclamation was made that "the new vear has come."
