Over two hundred sat, down nt the. banquet of the SoiiUit7-ii dilit'orniii Editorial Association on Saturday evening at the Hotel Virginia, Long Beach, the closing event but one to a two days' convention held by the scribes in that city. Never did the Virginia have on a gnrb more beautiful, save, perhaps, on its opening sometime ago. The tables, arranged in an artistic manner, were beautifully decorated with flowers, the color scheme being red and green. The speakers of the evening were assembled at the head table, which faced the other three long tables, and this allowed all the banqueters to hear with the greatest ease. On the center .table was a little newsboy doll, typically clothed. The banquet itself was carefully prepared, and was up to the standard of the Virginia management. The menu was an excellent one, and greater enjoyment was given the banqueters by thn Virginia orchestra, which rendered several selections during the evening, all of which were appreciated. When the banquet was finished, President P. E. Hatch in a few well chosen words introduced Mayor Windham, who made the address of welcome. After telling tho scribes that Long'Beach was very proud to have J, the pleasure of entertaining them, Mayor Windham spoke of the harbor prospects, and predicted big things for that city when the harbor close'] thn banquet. The other speakers of the evening were: J. P. Baumgnrtner. Hon. T. E. (iibbon, On. A. K. Chaflee, Lou I' 1 . Chapin and C. 1).

Mont of them remained at the bench over Sunday, going to their homes early Monday morning. The officers elected for (he ensuing year are as follows: James Judsou Penny, Long Heacii, president; Mrs, H, (i. Tinsle.y, Pomojin, first vice- president; F. E.

An invitation was accepted from the Imperial Valley Chamber of Commerce to visit, the valley the last week in October. "* The Virginia, Long Beach is completed. Mayor Winclham then spoke briefly of his experience iu this line of work, arid stated that he had grown up in it. His remarks elicited much applause. e President McDivit responded for the newspapermen, and his witty sallies had the banqueters iu laughter most of the time. Edgar Johnson, the toastmaster of the evening, was then introduced by President Hatch, nnd he introduced Senator Prank P. Flint, who spoke on the toast, "President ot the United States. " Senator Flint paid a glowing tribute to the chief executive 'of this land, and declared that he stood for everything which was righteous and progressive. "His policies and tho legislation that he has been directly responsible for have placed him at tho head of the statesmen of tho world. Ho has raised statesmanship and citizenship to a higher standard than ever 'he- fore and 1 regard him as the greatest constructive statesman in the world today. To him belongs the credit of the great Panama canal now in the process of completion, and which will unite the stormy and tempestuous Atlantic with the cairn and sleep-lulling Pacific. To him we owe the measures that have been and are being enacted for the irrigation of lands which have been unproductive, but which are now scones of profuse and bounteous vegetation. And if Theodore .Roosevelt says that Southern California must have the harhous that the people in this district are to eagerly longing for, then be assured that the harbors will no longer be a matter of speculation, but. will be an assured fact." Congressman MeLachlan was the next, speaker and the deafening applnuM; which greeted him WHH a glowing tribute of \\\~ popularity in Southern California. His toaHt was, "The I J ower and Duty of the Press," his talk teeming with praise for the houeiit, newspaper writer.

Hotel Virginia, Lontr Beach's million dollar hotel'—-the most palatial coast hosterly in the world was raided Saturday afternoon at live o'clock by Chief of Police Thus. W. Williams and two policemen of that city. Guests of the hotel at the time included one hundred newspapermen of Southern California, gathered with their wives for a three days' outing at the seashore. The hotel management a few months ago was mailed a copy of Ordinance No. 100, the prohibition law of the city, when Chief Williams was under the impression liquors were being sold. No other warning was given at that time and none meantime. The raid Saturday followed on the suspicion of the police that tho prohibition law of the city was being violated. Manager Linnard has attempted to handle the question here as it is handled in Pasadena, where the three big hotels are permitted by public sutfrance to sell liquors to guests, although the city rceeives no revenue nor does it issue a table license. Chief Williams states that the law is on the books and will be enforced against all alike. About Teeth Mouth germs and acids gen- crated from food cause decay in teeth.
