These very trees, whose luxuriant foliage to
day shelters us from the heat of the sun. cast
their Ehade over the deliberations and acts of
cur fir.st State Government. Hardly beyond
the reach of the voice from this spot was con
vened and organized the first State Legisla
ture, and there the entire machinery of th-*
State Government was put in active motion.
Hefore Congress had granted our prayer for
Statehood, before the executive of the nation
had penned his name to his approval of the
bill making California a State, the pioneers,
our fathers and predecessors, had in this city
firmly established a complete State organiza
tion.
The occasion, the place, the surroundings,
bo fresh and sweet with the historic memories
of the State, inspire her sons and daughters
with a love and enthusiasm that raise their
pride of State and love of country to a ioftjr
position.
Ladle* and Gentlemen: It Is with a de«p
sense of the honor and distinction that in the
name of the Native Sons of the Golden West
I bid you welcome at the celebration of the
fifty-third anniversary of the admission cf
California into the Union
DAVID M. BURNETT of San Jose,
grandson of California's first
Governor, delivered the address
of welcome on behalf of the local
parlors and city. In part he spoke as
follows:
WELCOMES GUESTS
ON BEHALF OF THE
FAIR GARDEN CITY
The members must bear a good reputation
for sobriety and Industry; they must follow
some respectable calling by which to make
a living, and, as a vital principle of the as
sociation, it encourages temperance among Its
members and recommends total abstinence
from all Intoxicating drinks.
Coupled with us In our dally work — cheerful
in their labors, brilliant In their public ex
pressions, loyal in their devotion to our State
and Its Interests, the Native Daughters of the
Golden West — our mothers, our wives, our sis
ters, our daughters and our sweethearts are
doing noble work for our State and our na
tion.
• In caring for the sick. In nurturing' the or
phans, in buryingr the dead, in fostering -every
Interest that makes for the betterment of
n.ankln.1 and the Improvement of internal con
ditions In California, the Native Daughters of
the Golden West are impressing their magnifi
cent womanhood upon the entire State.
Every citizen of California owes an everlast
ing obligation to those hardy sons of every
soil who left their homes and faced the dan
gers of an unknown land to lay^ the founda
tion stones of this great commonwealth: those
Argonauts —
"Who crossed the plains, as of old the Pll
'grlms crossed the sea,
To make the West, as they the East, the
homestead of the free."
As the descendants of those hardy Pioneers.
The order of the Native Sons of the Golden
West is not a seiflsh organization; it Is found
ed upon the broad and undying principles
of friendship, loyalty and charity.
It was organized for the mutual ' benefit,
'mental Improvement and social Intercourse of
it's members; to perpetuate in the minds of
all native Californlans the memories of -one
of the most wonderful epochs In the world's
history — "the days of '49" — to unite them in
one harmonious body throughout the State by
the ties of a friendship mutually beneficial
to all and unalloyed by the bitterness of re
ligloug or political differences, the discussion
of which is most stringently forbidden In Its
meetings; to elevate and cultivate the mental
faculties; to rejoice with one another In,pros
perity, and to extend the "good Samaritan"
hand In adversity.
The Native Sons of the Golden West are
not alone orsanized to preserve the fame of
California and glorify the deeds of her found
ers, but to carry on with unceasing zeal the
grand work of building up our great State,
foeterlng and developing Its wondrous re
sources and educating its sons and daughters.
What the pioneers began so auspiciously
fifty-three years ago to-day, as their natural
heirs we native sons and native daughter*
are proud to carry on and build up. It is
but the natural impulse of our hearts, prompt
ed by our patriotism and loyalty, that has
called us together in the hospitable city of
San Jose. The thousands gathered here to
day are but the living evidences of the patriot
ism and loyalty of the citizens of our entire
State.
Mr. President, Pioneers, Native Daughters,
Native Sons. Ladies and Gentlemen: What
a flttln* tribute, after fifty-three ytars, we,
native sons and native daughters, children and
grandchildren of the pioneers, have come back
to San Jose, the first capital of the State of
California, we and a few of those old pioneers,
to commemorate the birthday of our beloved
State. '
GRAND PRESIDENT H. R. McNO
BLE was the orator of the day.
He was received with cheers and
delivered an eloquent address. He spoke
as follows:
PREDICTS BRIGHT
FUTURE FOR LAND
SO WELL BELOVED
the destiny of our beloved State rests upon our
shoulders.
• The orders of the Native Sons of the Golden
West and the Native Daughters of the Golden
West stand as monuments to the memory of
those stout-hearted Pioneer ..inothers and fath
ers who made It ptfsalble to have the great
California of to-day;-they are not organized for
a day, but for all time.
There Is one feature that distinguishes the
organization of the Native Sons of the Golden
West from all other fraternal organizations,
and that feature Is loyalty to the State of Cali
fornia. It is one of the fundamental principles
of our organization.
We love these great United States and our
officers of government; we love and admire a
citizen of our Government from whatever part
of our possessions he may come; we never put
California before our nation. We always place
her, with all our love and devotion to her,
side by side with every other State or Terri
tory cf our great Federal bond and we love to
feel and know that she is a strong and grow
ing link in the great sisterhood of States.
Within the confines of our State nature, with
a generous Impulse, has strewn the fruits and
flowers, the mineral and climatic wealth of a
thousand climes. Progress and prosperity,
health and plenty have been written on every
page of her history; yet it remained for the
strident voice of Dewey's guns at Manila to
fully demonstrate to the world California's
patriotism, California's ability, California's
manhood, California's greatness. To-day we
are situated geographically In the center of
the greatest nation known to ancient or mod
ern history; a nation that commands the re
spect and admiration of the entire world.
Within the borders of our State every citi
zen stands on an equal footing; great as. has
been her progress, greater still are her oppor
tunities.
There Is no boy or girl, however humble his
birth, who, if he try, may not rise to be
mighty among us and famed In this nation of
the free. Such demonstrations as this, into
which we all enter so happily to-day, are but
the school houses of liberty erected In loving
devotion to our patriotic republican form of
government.
The spirit that supported the tired and
weary argonaut as he trudged across the great
plains a half century and more gone by; the
spirit that raised the bear flag at old Sonoma;
the spirit that brought California Into the
Union without the process of Territorial child
hood; the spirit that framed the first constitu
tion of our State; the spirit that hanged Caaey
and Corey to the improvised scaffold, the spirit
that laid the foundation of this great common
wealth, Is Instilled In the sons and daughters
of the pioneers. Our foremost object In life Is
and of right should be, to foster and . revere
that spirit. How well we are performing that
Facred trust is known to every household In our
8tate. While we still have hovering about us
the spirit and Inspiration of the golden days
of early California, we associate that spirit
at tho commencement of the twentieth cen
tury with the great and powerful genius of our
present prosperity and the greater possibilities
of the future.
Bright as are the pages of our fifty-three
years' history; heroic as have been the deeds
of her builders; wonderful as has been her
progress. It takes no seer or prophet to tell us
of her brilliant future. With her golden treas
ure, her millions of fertile acres, her harbors,
the wonder of the world; her thousand miles of
coast line fondly clasped by the peaceful queen
of oceans, the natural roadway of the mother
country to our possessions in the Orient — all
these opportunities in the hands of her citizens
of energy and ability, who can resist tho
hope that ere many decades California shall
be the empire State of this great nation?
"California, the Idol of our hearts! While
her valleys shall thrive the poppy, her snow
capped Sierras stand as sentinels to guard
her eastern portals, while her myriad golden
streams shall feed the peaceful old ocean at
her feet, may her eons be ever loyal to her call;
may their hearts ever beat with love and kind
ness for her upright citizens; may the God of
all nations watch over and guide her desti
nies for all time to come!
The band concert followed and was en-
Joyed by the large audience.

LOCAL POLITICS
CROP UP IN SAN
JOSE COMMITTEE
BUT one little incident aside from
the usual Admission day festivi
ties occurred in connection with
to-day's celebration. That was a dash of
local politics that had been hatched up
for the celebration, but the arrival of
Grand President Mc&oble soon straight
ened it out. Because Mayor Worswick
and his administration were not favored
by the leading lights in the Native Sons'
organization the committee in charge de
cided to snub the city's executive. Chief
of Police Carroll was also on the list to
be turned down and no invitation was
extended. to him to furnish" an escort for
the parade. By eome mistake Carroll
was invited by some of the members and
then the committee decided ( to ask that
only Native Sons on the force be fur
nished for an escort.
When the squad with Chief Carroll
lined up to-day in the lead of the proces
sion there were all nationalities in line.
Scheel Scores Popular Success.
A , second popular concert was given
yesterday at the Mechanics' Pavilion, di
rected by Fritz Scheel and under the aus
pices of the San Francisco Symphony So
ciety, and the attendance far exceeded
that at the first concert last Monday. The
programme was similar to the preceding
one and was huccly enjoyed. Schubert's
The most recent excavations show that
Vesuvius began its work as a conservator
of antiquity earlier than the memorable

have come to light. These had been cov

Members of the visiting- parlors says
that the matter may find its way into the
next session of the Grand Parlor. The
same kind of a slight was given, the Chief
of Police and the Mayor by the Labor
day committee.
Grand President McNoble when he
heard that the Mayor had not been in
vited to participate in the parade sent
for the committee and declared he would
not stand for any such slight to the head
of the city. McNoble said he would not
parade himself unless Mayor WorsWick
was invited. The grand president then

It Is the glory of our American institutions
that the road to honor and distinction is open
to every cltlien, no matter how humble may
have been his origin, or how obscure his sta
tion In life. Intellect and sterling Integrity
are the products of no favored land. God has
scattered the seeds of genius by the side cf
the beaten highways and in many a lonely
home, and the voice of the republic reaches
all citizens with the same words of encour
agement and hope and calls them from the
plow, the mine, the forest and the factory
to «lt In the councils of the nation.
Let us rear upon the free soil of the West a
race of men and women worthy of a great and
an Independent State. There are victories of
the past that will serve as an Inspiration for
the future. The years open before us full of
hope and promise. For the love of our State,
to perpetuate her traditions and to consecrat-*
ourselves to every ennobling aspiration for the
future we have associated ourselves together.
If we are to make of California an example
to the world of a Just and well governed com
monwealth, diffusing the blessings of free gov
ernment, we must build upon the foundation
of a noble manhood. Character, in the up
building of a nation. Is everything. We are
leagued together to advance the interests of
our commonweaJth at all times. We stand for
the development of her resources, the i»tlmu
latlngr of her industries, the beautifying- of her
cities, the irrigation of her valleys, the protec
tion of her forests, the preservation of her
landmarks, but. above all. for character and
nobility of manhood everywhere.
All the boundless wealth that sleeps within
our hills or brightens all our plains should
weigh as naught compared to our love for the
flag and the Union and those principles which
lie at the basis of popular government in
America. Deep rlanted in the heart of every
patriot is the sentiment of loyalty to some
thing which Is over and above all the mate
rial wealth and grandeur of nations, which
weds him to the soil, not on account of the
abundance of Its resources cr the pleasant ap
pearance of its landscape, but because upon
that roil the institutions he love* have found
rest and over it all is breathed the spirit of
freedom sanctified by the deeds of Its mar
tyrs.
Whatever concerns rhe welfare of the State
or adds to the happiness and prosperity of htr
I>eoi>le should be and is near to the hearts of
the young men of our fraternity.
The true greatness of California depends
upon the intelligence and patriotism of her
sons and daughters and upon the spirit of
contentment and Industry that permeates the
mass of our people. The white-winged mes
sengers of commerce may bear our products
over every sea, the starry banner of the re
public flash in the morning sun alt around the
globe, but unless sustained by the high char
acter of our citizenship they reflect no glory
on ti." nation.
The historic landmarks of this State, now
fast crumbling to ruin, must be restored and
preserved for the generations which are to
follow in our footsteps.
The magnificent forests and groves of big
trees which cluster upon the flanks of our
mountains must be protected from spoliation;
the waters of the Sierras conserved and dis
tributed to render fruitful our broad valleys
and reclaim the barren plains.
Our home Industries should be fostered, our
manufactories encouraged and the energie" oi
the citizens stimulated and exerted nlong
progressive and expanding lines.
California' e brightest laurels are yet to be
won. No great task can be accomplished, no
great end achieved but through organization,
Vd in the concerted effort springing from the
hearts of tens of thousands of young men of
this State, cemented by fraternity, is the
noblest hope of the West. We are to perpetu
ate and to achieve.

ing to the whole world of the work of the
California pioneers?
It Is not the gold they due from the moun
tain fastnesses nor the bountiful crops they
gathered from the valley that marks their great
undertaking — these have come and may pass
away — but It Is this great commonwealth which
holds her position firmly In the Union of States
that speaks with an eloquence grander and
tweeter than the tongue of Demosthenes or the
pen of Milton, of the great epic of the deeds
of California's pioneers. ' Sons and daughters
of California, our duty is not to praise In words;
It is to carry on to perfect completion the great
work that is left to us by our fathers; let the
strong sense of duty and Justice that guided
them In the upbuilding of the State be our
light on the road to the fulfillment of their
hopes.

that assures protection to the right and holds
terrible punishment for the wrongdoer, a struc
ture that resembles in its intricacy and con
struction the essentials of the fabric of the
State. The keel must be well and strongly laid
and each plate must be intact and each rivet
firmly set, else the whole will not sustain the
buffet of wave or the impact of battle. But
fifty years since and our fathers with but little
experience in statecraft were building the
State; to-day their sons are engaged in the

In the great undertaking; but like the pioneers,
they are filled with hope In their labor and the
brains that connived her plan and the hands
that are molding her form are as apt and sturdy
as those of the earlier day. Has the Oregon
and her flight to aid our navy on the Atlantic
coast given us any reason to fear the result?
May their handiwork be an honor to us and
may the California, like her great model, our
State, carry the flag in honor as a pledge of
freedom to all the waters of the globe, an as
surance of peace and protection to the just,
and may the times be but few when she finds
occasion to Dour forth wrath upon the heads

No trace of the identity of James E.
Sharp could, be found in this city last
night. His name does not appear in the
directory. J. Everett Sharp, who it was
thought by the New York police might

REDDING, Sept. 9.— The . people of De
la Mar fought throughout the day to save
their homes from a forest fire, which
burned north, east and south of the town
and which sprang up about the smelter
which reduces the ore of Captain De La
Mar's Bully Hill mine, at a point twenty
six miles northeast of Redding. Although
seven houses became ignited at different
times, one of them being on fire on four
occasions, the flames were extinguished
in all cases.
This evening danger of De la Mar's de
struction seems to have passed, although
the fire has leaped Squaw Creek and.
fanned by a stiff north breeze, is racing
toward Copper City, a small settlement
four miles south.
Men are on guard at De la Mar. Cap
per City citizens have been warned of the
danger. They will resort to back-firing.
This evening the entire south side of
Town Mountain, near De la Mar, is ono
sheet of flames and illuminates the coun

"Military March" was the opening num
ber and prepared every one for popular
musical numbers to follow. This popular
programme contained Mendelsshon's over

"grand-stand player" and a "colossal
egotist." He said that while Mr. Roose

was doing all he could to promote an
asset currency scheme for the benefit of
the banks. He charged Mr. Roosevelt
with professing religion and doing all
in his power to encourage war and fast
en the chains of militarism on the nation.
He made a prophecy in which h'e said

of ribs and about its equivalent in lard
to-day and was one of the factors in mak

Cash treatment

cash\.
Furniture, carpets, curtains
rThis is the proposition: You want to fur-
nish a home. You haven't enough ready cash
to pay in full when the goods are delivered,
-lence you're compelled to buy "on time." Yet
you dislike trading in an out-and-out install-
ment store. How are you going to get the
easy - payment accommodation and still buy
your goods in one of the big first-class stores?
We offer you the way.
We loan you the money, charging simply
the regular banking rate of interest — six per
cent. You go then to one . of the big, first-
class furniture stores where the stock is big
and fresh, and where satisfaction is certain;
and when you have made your selections pay
your bill in good, hard cash.
The installment stores charge you ten per
cent above their cash prices for time. All yott
pay us is six per cent. The actual saving to
you is FOUR PER. CENT.
For instance: If your purchases amount to
$100.00 we will charge you $106.00— which is a
six per cent advance ; then you pay us $20.00
cash and the balance in monthly payments
amounting to $8.60 each month. If your pur-
chases amount to $75.00 we will charge yon
$79-5° » y ou rnakc us a cash payment on this
of $15.00 and pay the balance at the easy rate
of $645 per month.
Investigate this — it will pay you.
