Pasademho, Cal Jan. 1. The 21th
arnual Tournament of Roses of Pas
adena will go down In history of the
furious floral fetes of the Pacific coast
til which tho federation of these events
Vas consummated. With the arrlva1
hero this morning of the Royal Rosar
lans of Portland and the meeting to
night of the Festivals Association
there was set in motion a movement
to consolidate all the big festivals
from Seattle to San Diego and knit
them Into a co-operative unit. The
aim Is eventually to make tho coast
known throughout all the world as a
jiluco where these unique and spectac
ular events take place throuhout the
year, from January to December.
Aside from this feature of the cele
bration this year, the tournament has
Tumorous novel attractions. For the
first time the children of the public
schools participated in a variety of
floats typifying tho "melting pot of
the nations," Scotch, Dutch, Spanish,
Chinese and a "ship of state" typified
tho moulding of the races Into tho
Some Ilcnullfiil FlontH.
Another elaborate Idea worked out
In a series of floats was the "Tourney
of tho Lily and the Rose," suggested
hy Walter Cranes' poem, "Queen
Summer." Numerous floats were sent
from neighboring cities.
Harrison I. Drununond, a local
Tanker, and Miss Joan French, a well
Inown society leader, as king and
queen of Arcady, rodo In a "royal
barge" and presided at the sports In
Tournament park this afternoon.
These sports included chariot races
and unique races between ostriches
and an elephant and a camel. Stunts
ny Indian actors from the moving pic
ture companies were a feature also.
There were tremendous crowds on
the streets, four-car electric trains
bringing (n thousands. It is estimated
that .200,000 persons witnessed the
pageant and the sports,
In the evening there will be a bril
liant ball at the Hotel Maryland as a
conclusion of the festival.

It required several charges of Un
clo Sam's good powder to fittingly
celebrate the arrival of the New Year
last night at the armory. Tho sol
diers made things lively In front of the
building with their rifles Just as the
town clock tolled off tho hour of
twelve and nearby residents were
forcibly apprised of tho fact that 1912
was no more.
Considerable amusement was occa
ploned by some stranger rooming at
the corner of Court and Liberty
clrcots. II o bad apparently forgot to
wake up, or his clock missed lire, as
when everything was quiet after the
New Year had arrived safely, ho broke
out nnd created no small amount of
excitement by firing off what he prob
ably supposed to be a revolver, but
which was in fact a young cannon.
After whooping about the corner for
some time, he finally discovered that
no one else In tho city was making
any racket, and he quickly slipped In
out of sight.
The greeting accorded the New Year
in Salem last night was Bald to be
about tho most enthusiastic one ever
given It here. Artillery of every de
scription belched smoke and noise,
while church bells, steam whlBtles, tin
pans and anvils made the atmosphere
fairly shako when the eventful hour
arrived. The city was orderly, how
ever, and the police had no occasion to
Interfere. Several kicks were made
by people who were either aroused
from a sound sleep or were taking no
part In the genoral celebration.

For the first time In the history of

enjoyed themselves In spite of the fact

San Francisco, Jan, 1. While thou

Welcome Little 1913 and
Please be flood to All of Us
The old year, 1912, has limped off the stage and is burled In the limitless graveyard of Time. To
some it brought joy and peace, plenty and comfort, their hopes were realized and their paths lay
through verdant meadows, flower-decked fields and in pleasant ways. To others it brought sickness and
sorrow, death and parting, bhsled hopes, severed friendships and bitter disappointments.
Such Is Life, and such the apparently unequal lot of num. And yet, looking back over the year, few
of any can fall to find something for which to feel grateful, At first glance tills may not seem true, to
those who have suffered and lost, but this Is because their eyes have been blinded to the good things,
the pleasurable things, by the hard pressing hand of grief and disappointment that so predominated as
to blot them out and make them be forgotten.
Yet all these will pass away and this and oncoming years will soothe and soften-and rob the mem
ory of its bitterness. Even as the green moss covers the barren I ock and clothes it in perennial ver
dure, so does kindly Time wiih gentlo fingers cover and make beautiful, even our sorrows.
What a divine provision it Is that we cannot re-suffer pain; that the keen poignancy of grief cannot
be experienced, In memory, We can romember our pains, our sorrows, our bereavements, but we cannot
the second time feel their poignancy. If we could, they would accumulate until life became unbearable.
On the other hand, we can re-live our pleasures. We can enjoy In memory almost as keenly as In
realization the happy things, tho friendships, the joys that have come to us. And so as the years puss,
and gray hairs come on, we realize that It Is a good old earth, a kind old mother to her children, and
loving even when chastising us.
The Capital Journal today sends Its greetings to all; and hopes and wishes a happy and most pros
perous New Year and many more to all to readers. It is their home paper, sharing in their sorrows nnd
pleasures, recording their home lives. It is a family record, telling of birth, and marriage and death, of
the dally happenings In tho community, sorrowing In their sorrows, rejoicing with them in such happi
ness as comes. And so today it shares with them in the kindly New Year's 'sentiments and wishes one
and all a prosperous and a joyous year.

tiary for an hour, between 10 and 11

Manchu Maru Split Cap3
tain's Head With Shovel,
in Harbor at Portland
Portland, Ore., Jan. 1. With 25
stitches covering an ugly scalp wound,
Captain Don Salter, of the Oriental
freight steamer Manchu Maru, is in a
crltlcfr.: condition In a local hospital
today, following an attack on hlra by
the Japanese crew of the vessel, after
breaking out of the hold, where they
had been imprisoned to prevent deser
tions. Two of the crew are under ar
rest, and more arrests are expected.
Captain Salter, who was the only
white man aboard tho vessel, which is
anchored in the Willamette river near
the city, was on the bridge when the
Orientals, rushing on him 25 strong,
laid open his head with a Bhovel, and
continued to beat him with revolvers.
The scuffle attracted harbor police
men, who quelled the mutiny, and
hastened Salter to tho hospital.
Three Marriage Licenses.
Three marriage licenses were Is
sued yesterday by County Clerk Allen
just as the lust working day of the
old year was coming to a close. Those
securing the licenses are: Chas. M.
Justice, aged 17, and Lenora GrnceJ
jReed, aged 15, both of Salem; Arthur
Brodenson and Hnnna Ioats, both of
t'alcm, and Henry W. Hall and Ella E
Gibbons, of Woodburn.
The first mentioned couple wore
married by County Judge Bushey.
These applicants are the youngest re
corded for some time, the bride bare-
I )y being of the age required by law.
Cure Them Titles.
London, Jan. 1. New Year's
gifts In the shape of two peer-
ages, seven baronetcies and 18
knighthoods nre conferred here
today, according to custom, the
rewards going to officials, man-
ufacturers and merchants. The
arts, literature and the stage
being ignored entirely. Sir
George Sydenham Clark, a dls-
tlngulshed Indian official, and
Sir George Kemp, a wealthy
former member of parliament,
are tho two new peers.
About $60,000 is needed for the re
modeling of the present state caplto)
building, and Secretary of State 01
cott, custodian of the building is pre
paring to take complete advantage of
that sum if It is appropriated by the
legislature. A further appropriation
will be asked for the completion of the
A lnrge amount of space In tho pres.
tnt building will bo left at the dispos
al of the custodian when the supreme
court chambers, tho judges' offices and
the state library, tho attorney-gener-
ul's force and probably the state print
ing plant vucato the Bpace now occu
pied by those departments and take
up their abode In the new building.
It is proposed to divide up the pres
ent library room into small rooms for
the use of legislative committees. The
slete treasurer will probably be mov
ed to tho first floor and occupy the
space now use by the stato land board
nnd the capital furnace. The stato
lund board would then go to the sec
ond floor where the treasurer Is now
located. Secretary Olcott hopes to go
to the first floor and occupy the space
new held by the state printing plant.
He plans to Install a wicket system of
booths for hlB employes, thus do
ing away with the present open office
system which allows the public access
to the quarters occupied by stenogra
phers and clorks.
There is talk of moving the state
library commission to the first floor.
This department has more freight
shipments than any other department
and is farthest located from an en
trance to the building, so that it Is
very Inconvenient, when freight is to
be moved to or from the department
If tills department ses down stairs,
the state educational dejartment will
probably occupy the space upstairs
now used by the commission. The
railroad commission may also go up
SMALL CHANCE FOR
KING OR TEAL
According to the morning dispatches
Senator Chaniber'aln Is not optimistic
ns to the probability of a western man
being appointed on Wilson's cabinet as
secretary of the Interior. The senator
Cfilled ujmn the president-elect yes
terday to advocate the naming of W.
It. King or J. N. Teal, of this state, to
the place, but received little encour
agement. In fact Mr. Wilson Indi
cated the selection would probably be
made from the middle west. From
tl.lB It would seem that tho president
elect has more appreciation of the
voters of Oregon than he has for the
abilities of its Democratic leaders.

Truly Pitiful Scene
UNITED ritlCSS LEASHD Willi. J
Leavenworth, Jan. 1. As the train
carrying the convicted dynamiters ap
proached the prUon this morning, Olat
Tveitinoe studied the building closely
with a Bad look on bis face. All jok
ing ended, many of the prisoners
broke dqwn. Ryan and Tveltmoe
probably appreciated their position
more keenly than the others. Their
faces were haggard, and Ryan cried
like a child. Painter's eyes were
sunken, and his frame shook with sobs
When searched at the prison an Eng
lish cop' of tho Rublat of Omar Khay
ynn, Inscribed by Anton Johunneson,
was found on Tveltmoe. Ho begged to
be allowed to retain It, but this was
denied. The men were permitted to
keep what cigars they had, '.nit were
forced to give up cigarettes.
Michael J. Young, of Boston, reluc-
I tantly gave up a rosury, and ChiMei
Ileum, of Minneapolis, wept oontinu-
Ileum, Wnchmelster, Houllhnn. Pnln
i ter and Anderson were unable to con
1 cenl their feelings, weeping most of the
time. Wnchmelster was the man to bo
listed. Several rosaries aud pictures
of wives and othor members of their
families were taken from the prison
ers. As Hockln entered the room to bo
searched he glanced into thrt faces of
the prisoners, but met only stony
stares and scowIb. After the prison
ers were searched they were photo-
grnhed in their own clothes, each was
given prison garb and another photo
graph as then taken.

.Marriage Licenses, frill.
During the- year of 1912 County
Clerk Allen issued W0 marriage li
cense, or just seventy-one more than
Were recorded in 1911. Clerk Allen
slates that this Increase Is great, and
that lor Die some period of time,
shows a healthy gain over any pre
vious year since he has been In the
office. It required several large vol
umes to record the licenses for tlia
past two years.
