COVINA WAR, VICTORS OF PEACE, MAKE ARRIVAL Flagship Connecticut Majestically Leads Way to Anchorage. Bluejackets Eager for First Sight of Native Land. Home again. Sixteen monsters of war dashed out of the South Pacific and cast anchor off Hotel del Coro- tiado, just outside of Sau Diego Bay, at 12:59 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, one minute ahead of schedule time—and tho gigantic tleet was home again. Sixteen thousand officers and blue- jackets manned the sides and thrilled at sight of the home shore. Twenty thousand people, American men, women and children, lined the shore, the boulevards, the breakwater and the pier, their hearts too full for cheers, their heads uncovered, and watched the majestic spectacle, the arrival of America's Messengers of Peace. Governor (Jillett and the members of his party watched the approach of the fleet from the veranda of the hotel. Gathered on the veranda were also the wives and mothers of many of the officers of the fleet, many of whom had journeyed across the continent to meet their men in blue. Other guests of the hotel watched the fleet's approacb from positions of advantage. Citrus Avenue We do the best repairing and use the 'nest material in the market at the most reasonable prices.

I;K<>K<;K SIMKONOFF official welcome and greeting from the people of the State of California. Admiral Thomas made the format return of Gov. Oillett's visit at 7 :30 o'clock in the evening. Accompanied by bis staff officers, his launch made the trip from the Connecticut to tho Coronado pier, foil lowed by launches carrying the other senior officers of the fleet. Brilliant is tho adjective best describing the banquet tendered Rear- Admiral Thomas and the senior officers of the fleet in the breakfast room of Hotel del Coronado at 8:l!0 o'clock following his return visit to the governor. The tables were arranged in the form of a half circle in such manner that there was no obstructive view. There were twelve tallies in all. Each was decorated in banks of flowers and HOI i lux. Tho room itself was beautiful, draped with tho national colors and tho colors of the state. Hundreds of tiny electric globes in all colors added to tho splendor, of the scene. At tho close of tho banqnot Mayor John P. Forward of San Diego presented to Rear-Admiral Thomas a handsome cut glass and silver set as a token of personal appreciation from the fleet reception committee, NAVAL P.UJADE. One hundred thousand people witnessing arid taking part in the greatest naval parade of years a city till ed throe times over by the advent of I bluejackets and visitors arche* ot } triumph and welcome a brilliant ' jumble of national and .stale color* enthusiasm unbounded -tears and cheers marl ial music the eounti y's defenders of the pint on nca and laud the modern bugle -the ancient, but ever nueet, life and drum a maelstrom of appreciation, of welcome, of civic and martial deep regret because nf the al i one dear to the American in town ' the brave, Kvans. This spectacle witnessed on W( lines-day in San Diego, the city whn-.f. land locked harbor has no peer in I he world. Five thousand men f! [u ide senco of pr-opli!, vsa.s the lastly, the true greatness of tho country that can build and maintain such an organization — such was tho scone expressed, and the lesson taught on Sau Diego bay at noon on Wednesday. From tho first step, nt the foot of D street, to tho last movement iu the city park, were tho thousands of uniformed sailors formed in deep ranks of motionless discipline, tho march was a thing of triumph iu tho glory of the American navy, and weleoiue to the men who had manned its very flower in the history-making cruise from the shores of America on tho Atlantic to the shores of America on tho Pacific. So long \V»s the parade that it took the procession an hour a half to pass a given point. So many were the features of tho greatest parade in tho history of tho American navy, that it would indeed be difficult to mention all, but it can safely be said that the sight of the perfectly drilled sailors, moving like clock-work as they maneuvered into platoons, was by no means the least of these. The most magnificent social event of the week wag, of course, the grand ^^^^ the fleet iu the ballroom of the Coronado Hotel on Wednesday evening. Almost one thousand people thronged the parlors of the hotel and the ballroom. Beautifully gowned ladies and uniformed officers promenaded tho verandas. The galleries of tho ballroom were thronged by hotel guests who gave up dancing to witness the brilliant naval sceno from the place of vantage. Tho ballroom waa appropriately decorated with national emblems. Music for tho ball was furnished by the marine band of tho flagship Connecticut. DISTRIBUTION OF FLEET AFTER REACHING SAN PEDRO.
