lucid, reviewed the splendid career of
Claus Spreckels from 1 boyhood to the
present time, showing how the guest of
the evening had created opportunities and
lived up to them. He referred to j the
vast material wealth which Mr. Spreckels
had created and the legitimate business
opportunities which his genius had. de
veloped. The Influence of his operations
was not limited to the Pacific Coast, but
had been extended to the Atlantic Coast
and the Hawaiian Islands^ Mr. Loveland
remarked that Claus Spreckels had.prac
tically annexed the islands to the United
States long before the actual acquisition
of the territory had been officially
achieved. Mr. Loveland said that here at
Claus Spreckels' home In California,
where he Is best known. It was. fitting

on the part of the Governor to relieve- the
distress of the people, but freely advanced
the money to relieve the suffering. "To

speaker, "the misguided successor of
Governor Budd pigeonholed the bill pass
ed unanimously by both houses of the
Legislature to reimburse Mr. Spreckels.'
The bill was not vetoed because the Leg
islature, would have passed It over the
