L * i More than 20,000 strangers slept in PasadenA Tuesday night, and Wednesday morning when the floral parade of the Tournament 'of Roses started there were at least 60,000 visitors within the city gates. In the size of the crowds that fined "the streets and in the beauty of the floral pageant Wednesday was a record day in the Grown city. Flowers in wonderful and harmonious' color combinations decorated the vehicles/ the horses and the women who rode in the parade and, altogether, made up a spectacle that set a new maik for {he series of high class New Year's 1 entertainments that > Pasadena has prepared for her guests. In addition to the 20,000 visitors who were in Pasadena Tuesday night, it is estimated that the Pacific' Electric Raihoad company brought in 25,000 people, bej^nning at 6 o'clock and landing thorn, there before the floral parade stai'ted at 10:46. The steam railroads; carried at least 10,-' 000. and automobiles and carriages brought, between ;fl,000 and 5,000 more. Fully, TOfr/Oovinaites attended the Tournament.

Griffith of Azusa to .engage in a public ,debate, Dr. "K. P., Shepherd has given out this Open letter: "A. P. Griffith. Azusa: Dear Sir—Your candor at least is .refresh- Ing. We-are all surprised that yon publicly confess to have boen,vng- ing a 'Campaign of personalities. While we know that;neither you .nor your party seek to dodge any issue In this campaign, u nevertheless we haven't been able in any' matter whatever to get you in a public dls- cusdibn of tbe merits of this question. Your claims to have won the campaign are merely amusing and about on a par with your sincerity in referring to the Master and then quoting General Grant. Your confidence in your campaign is manufactured arja we are complacently awaiting the day when you will cease tryipg this case by personalities and come to an official showdown. Yours, "R. P.

Promptly at 10:45 o'clock the parade started from Orange Grove avenue, the home of Pasadena's millionaires and one of tbe most famous avenues in the world. As tKe mounted police guard swung into line it could bo seen by thousands and, when tho carriage of the queen of tho Tournament of Roses, Miss May Suttou, the tennis champion of tho world, en mo in sight, it was greeetd with a cheer. AH the gorgeous parade wended HH way through the city, it was followed by the huge throng ol' visitors and the congestion on tho down town streets was frightful until relieved by the rush to Tournament park where the afternoon sports and chariot races are held. Here at thn gates tho crush again was resumed and tho scores of ticket takers could not grab the pasteboards fast enough to satisfy tho crowds. At tho barbecue, again, there occurred a rush, and, until the monster ihrong was fed, there was a mob assailing tho long tables. In tho parade itself there were many beautiful floats, so charming in color scheme and in daintiness of detail that it was hard for the judges to select the pri/o winners. A decided departure from the floats and barges of last year, tho bountiful barouche of tho tournament <|ii('eri rolled through the streets applauded | by all. Tint vehicle Beatiuif tho ' queen, MJHH May Kutton, and her four maids, was most artistically decorated in lilie-i, the- design hcinu a big lily. It was distinguished, riot so I much for its extravagance of flowers as for the tasteful manner in which they wore arranged. The running gear of tho vehicle was draped in white satin ribbon, as wan tho harness of the two powerful black horses that drew tbe barouche. Baskets of rosso huny from curvod uprights. Another feature of the parade WIIH the appeiiranco of the Spanish war veterans. Hoosevelt camp of Los Angeles, MoKinley camp of Long iieuch and Ensign Utigley camp of Pasadena bent fully 100 veterans to appear in the parade. At tbe head of the lino a former sailor of tho United States navy carried tho Mag that 'Aas on the liennington when that vessel was blown up in tho liar- bur of Sau (Jiego, and earrh man car ried a blanket roll o'f red geraniii:n.s and rost-.s.

Monday wan * busy day for the members of Cotton's volunteer Ore department Often nearly a yeair without even a false alarm, tbe department was called out twice and the promptness with which they answered probably saved various conflagrations. The first alarm was turned It) shortly after ten b^look in thn morning, flr* being discovered o« the premises of the Covina EleotHo Co., on E. College street. Tho Are. due ! t6 combustion, started in tbe corner of the building. Within a few minutes after the arrival of 'the department it was. extinguished but not until qenrly 1600 damage by fire and water had been done to tho stock. No insurance. The second call was shortly after tour o'clock in tbe afternoon and was due to a blaze in the residence of R, N. MoKlaney, adjoining the )unkaH church on W. Puente street, caused by the explosion of a gasoline itove. By tbe uulted efforts of the icoupauts of the house and neighbors he flames were extinguished before be arrival of the department.

Antis Seek to Have "Dead Ones" Removed From Great Register., Claiming that victory a Irony in theirs, hut evincing an evident desire to make it appear overwhelming, opponents of county division apnoaled to tho county clerk to have tho names of all "fiend ones" ami tnuso wiio have removed from tho ad ('('.led district stricken from the great register. The petition of tho divisioniHlH having been circulated and submitted on the basis of tho total number of tinmen on the great register, the "antis" readily see that the porcon tagc of names on their petitions now hoing circulated will increase w ith the reduction of tho total number in the register. Tho "fitis" estimate that about, 1 10 have died <>r re moved from the district since the great register was completed. When tho "nut is" appeared at the court house and roi|iichted a surgical npuration on the. contonf.H «f the Mg hook the county clerk declined to iitto.mpt a leu-al diagnosis of I lie caso and panned it along to the j county supervisors, 'i'ticnc lawmakers disclaimed any authority to take action without a ruling from the dis trict attorney, and it IH now up to tho interpreter of the statutes.
