SACRAMENTO. Oct. 10.— Hiram" TV.
Johnson was "welcomed home" tonight
to Sacramento, after a glorious trip to
day up the Sacramento river from An
uoth. _\s a delightful change from his
we^ks of touring by automobile and
train, the choice nf the republican party
for governor of California was brought
by tli? local committee on the chap
tered steamer Duchess from the little
river town, where he spent last night
and held a meeting at S:3O o'clock this
To the booming of » governor's sa- ;
lute of JS guns and the cheers of a j
. throng of people, the Duchess drew up j
to its Sscrflm^nto wharf at 6 o'clock j
this evening nnd Johnson stepped from
the flag bedecked little steamer to the
landing, where hundreds of his former
townspeople had gathered to bid him

tiv* rity was one of the most notable
political 'cavalcades ever seen In Cali- i
fornia. Seventy automobiles decorated
with national flaps were in line and a
band in a large tallyho led the prooes- ,
Fion through the principal downtown
thorou?:hfarep, ' where crowds gathered
at the curbs and cheered Johnson as he
The "'home coming" was ail that l\&6 !
, been planned by Johnson's Sacramento
admirer?, and even more. It wa* - a
generolis \u25a0whole pou'.ed. sincere greeting
to th* man who carried the standard
r>T republican insurgency to victory at]
th« primaries In August, and who Is!
now battling under that same banner ;
for a greater success In November. ;
Several jr.iles down the river from this'i
city the Duohess was met by a dec
orated steamer, bearing 300 members
of the Johnson club, and with flags fly
ing and Trhifctlej: blowing the two ves
sels mad<? a spectacular entrance into;
Tonight the capltol has been bril- ;
llaotly ablaze with lights as though
in festive dress for an inaugural ball.
Orchestras in the rotunda and in the j
assembly chamber have played since S
o'clock and for three hours the execu
tive building has been tilled with
crowds com? to' give greeting to the
republican party leader.
The master of ceremonies was Jus-,
tice E. C Hart of the court of appeals;
of the third district. He formally pre
sented Johnson, who. in a brief speech
in the assembly chamber, expressed liis
gratitude and «ppreciation of the re
ception accorded, him. It has been a
n:g"ht of vper^opal cbngratiilatkm by
' hundreds of earnest .'Trienas. <rather
than a- political gathering.: ' Both the
rotunda and assembly chamber of the
capitol were ha-ndsomeiy decorated for
the occasion, and the affair in. every
way lived up to its designation as a
strictly "home coming" celebration.
Johnson's river journey was one of
triumph from the time he stood at the
, <loor of the Belshaw theater at Antioch
at S:SO this morning and addressed a
street audience of 200 persons until the
Duchess docked at the city wharf at 6
o'clock this evening. Johnson broke
one of his campaign records by making
a speech at as early an hour as S:3O and
equaled another by including eight ad
dresses in a single day. AM but the one ]
speech here tonight were in small river
towns, but every audience was sympa- ',
thetic and enthusiastic.
Johnson was met last night at Anti
och by a large delegation of republi
cans from Sacramento, who accompa
nied him today on the river trip. Among
those who composed this escorting com
mittee were A. A. Deligne, former
Mayor CHnton K. White. State Treas
urer W. R. Williams, Victor L. Hat
. field. George W. Ficks, W. B. Thorpe,
E. 11. Cox! J- ranklin Griffin and Chair
man Meyer L,issner of the republican
state central committee. The steamer
Duchess was draped from bow to stern
with American flags, floated an im
mense national banner from its jack
staff and had just below its pilot house
a "Welcome Home" sign, bearing the
name of the republican nominee for
All along the wooded banks of the
Sacramento little groups were gathered
to cheer tlie steamer as, It passed and
at the towns where stops were made
.fhe wharves were crowded with wel
coming throngs. Even at the early
hour at which Johnson spoke at Anti
och a band was on hand and/ 200 or
more persons 1 gathered before the
Belshaw theater to listen to his dis
cussion of campaign issues. He was
introduced by former State Senator
Charles M. Belshaw a.nd both before
and after his speech was given rounds
of cheers.
At Collinsville, where the chartered
' steamer stopped at 9:45 o'clock, John
son spoke to an audience of about 100
on the wharf- Many of the men and
women in the crowd carried flags and
these were waved in g-oodby until the
\u25a0 -swamer passed out of sight. —
At "Rio Vista a band was on thi
wharf to meet the steamer and Jolin
• son was driven up town in an automo
bile and spoke from the machine at
the 'principal street -corners to about
200 persons. Similar crowds gathered
on. the wharves at Isliton and Walnut
Grove, where speeches were made later
in 'the afternoon, while at Courtland
Johnson addressed a gathering, of
about 100 in the Courtland hall.

Governor Opens Show
and Gels Surprise in
Shape of Pie
WATSOXVILLE, Oct. 10.— Governor
Gillett grot the apple pie of his life
tonight. The governor opened the apple
annual — "The apple show -where apples
graw"— tonight in the huge Watson
ville apple auditorium. He faced hun
dreds of Watsonville people ana basked
in the aroma of 2,500.000" apples. • No
governor of any ptate ever faced so
many apples before, and not one an
apple of discord..
Governor Gillett made ' a graceful
speech, extolling: the wondrous virtues
of the Watsonville apple," and the great
enthusiasm and patriotism of the Wat-
BonviUe people. When'the speech had
concluded and the applause was still
re-echoing- among the apple tiers. O. D.
Stoes?er, president of the apple annual
association, stepped toward the 'gov
ernor, attendee by members of the com
mittee, who bore between them a huge
box. The box was placed on the table.
St'<epser intimated * that tho governor
was fond of apple pie. Then he touched
a spring, the walls of the box flew
C'Slrcct scene in Watsonvillc; the Auditorium, in which the great- apple annual is. being hdd.-and two participants
j inthzshow.' , , ' . :.
apart and there popped into sight an
apple pie three feet in diameter, nine
feet and ecme inches In circumference,
and six inches deep. Never was such
an apple pie unveiled.
Governor GHlett was amozed at the
splendid prospect, the circumference of
rirh pastry, a flaky dish through, the
top of which outcropped little trickles
of Juice; A box of the rarest of the fine
Pajaro' apples had offered their rich
pulp and juices for the success of that
pie. and the sacrifices had not been in
vain. Then, of course. Governor Gillett
had to make another speech, in which
he paid homapre to th«» glory of the ap
ple pif. The pie will be boxed and sent
to Sacramento to grace the gubernato
rial tabl*.
With the notable success of this show
assured, the people of Watsonville can
have their joke with the governor's
The pip Vaf a symbol of the show.
It is in appl«f pie order, So_ many apples
were never' gathered under one roof and
two tents before. That' is the boast of
the TVatsonville people, and the con
clusion of George Edwin Rowe, the
apple expert from Grand Rapids. Mich.,
and editor of the Fruit Belt, who has a
wider familiarity with the apple prob
ably than any other man in America.
Rowe, too, does not stop with calling it
a quantitative show. He declared in his
statement to The Call correspondent
tonight that in quality the Pajaro ap
ple Is he peer of any, and In its freedom
from infection it~ is superior to any
apple he has seen. Rowe, who is pre
siding judge of the show, said: :
"I am,, from- the nature of ;my work
as consulting: horticulturist and editor
of the Fruit -Belt, familiar with the
apple industry of the United; States. I
know what 'is doing in all the states in
apple growing; and have been in touch
with the industry for - a number of
years. The government has recognized
me as one. of its lecturers at farmers'
Institutes and I. have also lectured .on
the subject of horticulture in many,
states of the. union. I have served as
Judge at apple shows In seven states.
"In ..he matter of the WatsonvUle
apple annual I must say that I have
never see so large a.quantity. of. apples
onexhibitlon. Here are twice ..as many
apples as ever were exhibited bfor.
The maximum before. had been 13. car
loads. Here are. 30. carloads of apples.
"One feature that appeals strongly
to me is- that here you have on exhibi
tion whole carloads of apples, with
every one perfect and as fine as thf
apples of a plate full would be at an
ordinary show. When simply a plate
full of apples is exhibited it- is not a
difficult matter to go into an orchard
and select perfect specimens. -But when
you set about to get a! carload of per
fect apples and do that, "then you are
going some.
"The people of Watsonville and the
Pajaro valley are growing apples of
high, quality. Here are. the Spitzen
berg, the Jonathan, the Bellfieur, the
Winter Banana, the Pearman, all apples
of high quality. It is the. English bred
fruit which is " superior, to the type
of Spanish bred fruit, which is grown
in some parts of the west. It is the
better fruit for general purposes that
you grow. here, and you are growing
the best verieties and as-high quali
ties as anywhere in the world.
"From the nature of my work I have
kept in touch with -the. apple industry
of the Pajaro valley, although I was
never in this, district before, but" I 'find
that here is gr^iwn a better class ' ol
fruit, and better varieties than- 1* ex
pected to find.; But the public, is.'not
familiar with the merits of. this di/btrict
and of the apples raised .here. They
v.'ill come, hdweyer.-to learn- of the
valley and its apples. • sv]-'.;
' "There is. another important- point
which . I wish to make in regard to the
Watsonville" and - Pajaro' apples. \u25a0••• The
fruit is the" freest from infection of any
fruit that' I have ever seen anywhere."
The apple aroma is in the air in Wat
sonville. .It 3 ermea -tes the pavilion
where "the show: Is'held. Two million
and' a half 'apples contributing -their
sweet essance. to- the". air 'all in one
place can -not but- be effective. -The

•vvalls.are made of dried apples, firing
the color tone of the building. -This
splendid exhibit. was designed and made
by the pupils of ttie Watsonville high
school, who have reason to he proud
both of their building and of the ap-'
pies in 'ivhich they reproduce It. .Hu- !
mor is not lacking in the fac simile.
The grounds surrounding 1 the school
house is of green apples,. and there are
many warning, signs of "Keep O.ff the
Kxposrno\ he'.iehberei)
The Panama-Pacific international ex
position is well remembered on the
main floor of the pavilion. Standing
most prominently among - the .feature
exhibits is the great apple picture rep
resenting "The Kiss of. the Oceans." a
reproduction in apples of x the popular
postcard and poster design. The pic-,
ture shows the two -American conti
nent.*. The United States Is .outlined
in red apples, Mexico and .Central.
in green 1 appfes andthe'.South
American continent j.n .yellpwfapples.'
Dried, fruit Is tlie^ocean.- The dried,
apple is not usually the medium in
which beautiful young maidens . are,
represented or such ajpleasant recrea
tion as a kiss Is portrayed..- But the
Watsonville folk have Imagination
which rises superior to the humble role
which the dried apple Is supposed to
filf in this life. Or, possibly, the Pajaro
dried apl« rises superior to the humble
reputation with which dried apples of
other lands are burdened.
Any way it does not seem.incongru
ous to see the young women spirits of
the Pacific and - the. Atlantic oceans
meeting with dried apple lips at the
Panama canal. , Dried apples ai'e some
times known'to give a .pucker to the
lips, and a , pucker is commonly; be
lieved to be part of a kiss.
From sentiment the apple exhibitors
swing to commerce.- The Japanese as
sociation of 'WatsonvillQ has a great
model of a freight steamer, "the Pa
jaro," 24 feet long and correspondingly
high, made in apples, as their contribu
tion to the show. The ship is sailing
through a green-apple sea and its decks
are sweet with a red apple cargo.' Tha
hull Is made of dried apples.. The ves
sel is lighted with streamers of; elec
tric lights and flies the American 'and
Japanese flags. It bears the legend,
"First apple shipment; by Panama
canal." . , " . \u25a0

Fishermen Strive to Catch the
Sacks and Some Succeed,
but Four Get Ducking
\u25a0In spite of the', efforts of six tugs,
the stranded British -steamer Damara
drifted about 100* fee,t j nearer the fort
yesterday and is still very much ashore.
Discharging the : cargo inio lisrhters
proved too slow a method of lightering
the ship and stevedores were' ordered
to throw the barley." overboard. The
news, that grain worth ;S2S. a* ton was
being fed to the fishes traveled* fast
and before many, sacks - had been
dropped into the brine the" stranded
ship was surrounded by -fishing boats.
As the sllngloads of barley ' filled
sacks swung over the side of the ship
one or two of the gasoline fishing
launches wo.uld -choochoo. underneath
in the hope/ that" some- of the sacks
would ' fall on board. _ It was risky
work, but some of the fishermen ac

Two launches, however, were lost as
the result iof- this scramble for. loot.
They were waiting their/turn to run
in under a shower of barley. r The men
in charge allowed their,, boats to drift
over the hawser of one of the tugs.
Somebody on the Damara's bridgs at
that' moment 'signaled the tug to go
ahead. The tug's propeller churned the
water, the hawser tightened and as it
came out of the- water it fiopped both
launches into the air. One launch hung
for a' few seconds on the hawser, but
each launch disappeared the minute it
.hit the water. ; There were two fisher
men -in each boat. The- four men were
taken out of the water by the crews of
other fishing boat?. *
' About* 400 ( tons of barley was thrown
overboard, but it did not Improve the
situation. The tugs were unable to
hold theshlpand with every tone of
grain thrown -overboard the Damara
slipped a little closer to* the fort. An
anchor was put out yesterday over the
bow, and today two large anchors will
be. moored out -in deep water. One good
anchor is said to be more effectual than
Half a dozen tugs in holding a ship.
