SPECIM. DISPATCH TO THE CALI
YOSEMITE, May 25— Fortune
rides with the Native Sons. Fairer
day never smiled on fairer scene.
The mellow sunshine of the south,'
tempered by the light breeze ot the
' north, cast an enchanting spell over
the valley. The delegates have be
come imbued with the spirit of the j
place; feelings of new patriotism have
been born in every heart and the sense
of loyalty to the state has deepened
in every breast. . The prevailing' senti
ment was well expressed by "Grand
President M. T. Dooling in bis annual
report to the delegates in these words:
"W> assemble this year to' legislate
for our order "amidst the most '-happy
surroundings — in the very heard of the
great Sierras, far from the debasing
tendencies ,of ' this too commercial
period, and our work here should bd
characterized by euch a spirit of loyalty
snd unselfisUness-as \vHl be reflected in
rtur .organization for years to come,
i^avlng its -impress upon the youth of
our state, from whom our strength
mu^ -be drawn. 1 arid 'upon whose pro
bity* and civic virtue our real welfare
ami prosperity must ultimately^ depend.".
It was In just such a spirit that the
members of the order entered today
npoa the business of the thirty-first
annual «ees^on. '
The day's doings reflected the en
vironment. Resolutions were at once
Introduced uj-ging the strictest protec
tion of rhe jjreal forests and big trees |
of California. ;
".It \u25a0 was -but natural, for -who could t
'resist the mute appeal of the towering j
rpires. the solemn dignity of the lofty ;
pines and the eternal symphony"! of '
Tosemiie falls, crashing down its half
mile course of solid rock? When the
first shafts of light from the early sun
drove the twilight tnJsts from- Sentinel
rock It found the delegates astir, for
the fairest bour in the park comes with
the break of day. After the early!
morning piljcriraages th» delegates j
gathered at the picturesque little pa- j
villon for. the opening «ecsion.
MARYSVILLtIS WIXS PARLOR
Marrsvllle had a free field for, the
next grand parlor and was chosen by
a unanimous vote. Colonel E. A. Forbes
led the Marysville forces and was sup
ported by J. H. Marcuse and J. M. Mor
rlssey of the same city. The PaciJlc j
improvement, compaiw - wired an offer j
on behalf of He! Molito. but the mes
.sage arrived after Marypville had been
chosen. The Marysville _ chamber of
commerce expressed" its .plc-asure by a
cordial message of tiyinks. :
-It did not take the delegates long:
to < > spr»*«s their desire to be allowed
more time for sightseeln*?". A change,
has been proposed in the program
which will le«.ve Wednesday for that
purpose. In order to make" this possl r
hie an evening session was" held • to
night en<J th 3 dance- was canceled.
c The lmpr*w of the valley "upon* the
minds of the. delegates was manifested
by a resolution from Watsonville par
lor condemning in strong terms the
destruction , of trees in ihe, blg\ basin;
another resolution asking for the pro
tection of the .greet forests of the
state; a third praising William Kent
for presenting Muir woods to-the-na
tional government, and a fourth pro
posing that Arbor day 'be" annually ob
served In. California March 7, Luther
Burbank> birthday. All these resolu
tions'were referred to the proper com
mittees' and will be .acted upon later j
in - the session. :
'letters were' received from the de
partments of a jjriculture arid the. in
terior, the former thanking the order
for its indorsement of' lts forestry pol
icy, and the other advising the Native
Sons that^ the biff trees . property \u25a0 and
the lands surrounding them had -been
withdrawn from entry.
A resolution was presented by So
noma parlor proposing, the erection. of
'»"groonument to General Vallejo; one
by Monterey parlor .asking that "the
legislature be petitioned for a $2,000
appropriation t»r the old custom house.
The grand V^lor was also asked .in
another resolution to appropriate $250
for thepurpose of purchasing a set of
marching flags for the cruiser Cali
fornia.
The real naval program came later,
however, in the form of a' resolution
from H. G. W. Dlnkelspiel and his as
sociates of B?y City parlor, asking
President Roosevelt and Secretary,Met
calf "to u«« ttieir inSuencel for the"
maintenance of the Atlantic fleet or a
flotilla of equal size on the Pacific
coast.
BXEMPtrIFV XEW HITUAI/
One of the rao!-t interesting feature
of the day was the exemplification ".of
ilie revised ritual . this afternoon by a
<ommltte«; heeded by C. M. -Delshaw
and romposc-d of Fred L- Farmer;
Arihur Curtis. George Muntz, W. -M.-
McGovern. Fred H. Jung.' A. J, t Turner.
John Belshaw' and W. Xeumiller. " The
: new ritual was the. subject of 'discus
sion at this e vening' 6 session.
A letter from Fairfax: "RTie€!ari*"*w*as"
read before the grand : parlor, urging
the - members "to assist ; the children's
agency. \u25a0 This matteri will form : one of
the principal matters of business -at
this session.
The question. of rebuilding the -Native
Sons" hall In Jlason street in San

er Cannon is ; determined there .shali

and has delivered an ultimatum to, the
senate that he will refuse to f agree

The senate and house are wide apart
on the $ financial ; question, thei seriate
standing strongly . for -the 'Aldrich
bill, while the house is determined ; to
insist >on the adoption of the Vree
land bill. ; , The conferees representing
the two ' branches '; of '-. congress i have
been hopelessly "deadlocked/ and utter
ly unable; to" make any progress in the
direction , of .adjusting : the disagree l
ment between- the:, senate and. house]
But: since -Speaker -Cannon .laid' I down
