one or two in the moun tains north and east of this capital city the tourist or the settler would not be Jong in visiting us even as he Is now visit ing our brethren south the api The time Is ripe my of the Sacramento valley Awake arise gird up your loins and they should bo welcomed the strangers who are already knocking loudly at your gates Mrs Wm Beckman after expressing her sympathy with the Improvement idea gave an interesting description of things she saw In Europe and Mexico In Europe she was deeply impressed with the high value of beautiful ex effect secured at small Fine roads beautifully shaded We take the the Unions report following from W S Green presided by request and speeches were made by Senator Robert T Devlin C P Massey Mrs William Beckman J A Woodson W S Green president of the Valley Feder ated Clubs Mrs Albert dent of the Saturday Club Mrs A A Goddard president of the Tuesday Club Mr of the San Francisco Promotion Committee Arthur R Briggs secretary and manager the state board of trade Mrs A J John ston and Mrs Dr Wright of Sacra mento and Mrs Groves president of the Town Improvement Club of Red ding and an address by letter by Gov ernor Tho subject for consideration was cost and the beautifying of the towns cities villages rural homes and country sec tions of the Sacramento valley as a means to making the valley more at tractive and inviting to the incoming desirable Immigration and to im proving local conditions so as to en large content and stimulate the people to improve the advantages nature has given this section Hon R T Devlin confined himself to the utilitarian side of the question and argued that the thing to do is to show the people that improvement of environment will pay Conceding the high moral value of achievement he preferred to make the appeal selfish and practical by pointing out how cleanliness and will re sult in material gain C P Massey expressing himself as inclined to be with the status quo In most tilings found much to he proud of in what Sacramento has ac He sketched conditions here as he found them in 1874 and then pointed to what great advances have been made to this late in spite of the of the city and the disad vantages of lowlying grounds He then expressed the belief that vastly more can be done by the aid of women in organized effort since changed condi tions have made women factors In most industrial work in this day and have placed them in activity in about all movements for betterment W A Beard read a letter from Gov ernor Among other things he said I congratulate you on what you are doing to make the Sacramento val leys fertile as they easily can a population of several millions of happy prosperous and contented people In my humble judgment the great Sacramento valley from Redding to from the Sierras to the Coast Range is Inking It all in all one of the most fertile spots on earth Trav from end to end by Q great river with lateral streams it at comparatively short distances border ed by lofty hills the tumbling waters of which can furnish power in abun dance Irrigation elevations as desired and reservoir sites in with a climate that renders easy the cultiva tion of temperate and semitropical fruits in tlv abundance with soils o diversified kinds the vastly greater of the greatest fertility with foothills ami plains capable of the most varied Intensive cultivation with factory sites convenient to cheap power and cheap water and therefore rail transportation with no need for cyclone cellars nor lightning rods with no summer heats nor perishing winter colds with no dangers from floods nor all these blessings within our easy reach T can reason why the Sac valley should not arouse from its lethargy nor why the stretches of Its solitudes should not reecho with the Bounds of industry and the hum of cities and villages But before we ran expect to wel come others to share the bless ings an allwise has so free ly showered upon us let us be pre well cared for are the results of gov expenditure Not so with the homes of Europe for even the poorest we are doing are made beautiful by cleanliness floral cultivation and general tidiness Even in Mexico among the very poorest communities there are pro vided playgrounds and floral foliage dressing J A Woodson dwelt upon the value of the esthetic in everyday life and how a harmony may be made manifest between art and commerce business and beauty and adornment and indus trial struggle He claimed that the influence of beautiful homes towns rural places country farm homes and In cities modifies character and is up lifting refining and softening and therefore bettering augmenting happi ness and content and that this must be realized by our people Nature is so bountiful to us and our climate soil and natural opportunities are so great and common that we eare really un appreciative In a sense Mrs A J Johnston advised the adoption of the successful methods of the Womens Councils now so power ful in the east These embrace all clubs of women all improvement ac and energy by them and di rect and guide them by counsel advice and by diligent work promote gen improvement and advancement Mrs W S Green the federation president said all her organization wants is that Sacramento come in with their clubs to aid the valley work and their own and help on the movement Sacramento is now the headquarters of the federation as far as meetings are concerned Another meeting is to be held here In January and by that time she hoped Sacramento clubs would be in line Indeed take charge and aid and advise the valley people how to proceed A R secretary and manager of the state board of trade spoke by request and said Fresno was an ex ample of what could be done in town improvement It was at one time ill kept unattractive and dirty He told There are some things not included in the Union report that are worthy of mention For instance Mrs W H Grant submitted the following report I have been requested to give a re port of the work done by our club since last July As there Is a general exodus during our hot weather 1 have very little real work to report hilt we have talked a great deal a very un necessary statement as we arc known to be a club of We have so succeeded in impressing our city trustees with our usefulness In the community that they have asked our help in shaping public sentiment in favor of cemont sidewalks which good effect Our sanitary committee is to meet this coming week with the cemetery asso to formulate plans for substan improving the cemetery We have divided our club into four sections each to give an entertain ment of its own planning and tlie last section is to give a Halloween party month These entertainments have proven a success both socially and financially We are for a park with every prospect of success I do not know of any town with better nat ural qualifications for a park than Woodland with her beautiful oaks Our lecture bureau lias done the only real good work for this quarter they have assured us five good lectures this coming winter which judging from our past experiences we know will he of profit to the town and also sub benefit our park fund We believe our club has set the ball was furnished with what they named a rest house It was a structure of simple but artistic proportions where seats and lavatories were supplied so that guests and visitors to the town who had made long Jour neys through mud or dust could go and refresh themselves with change ot raiment hath and rest Such houses were always provided with a matron who kept things In perfect neatness and order replenishing towels anil ministering to the comforts of all com ers U is tt suggestion wel worth considering when tho improvement of n village park is contemplated Another feature of attractiveness which won Miss Leos approval was tho removal of fences and walls In some ot the towns she visited She thought there was no one thing which a vil lage could do with such marked effect the tearing down of fences In this Miss Lee does not stand alone Colonel told of tho added beauty to Dayton Ohio from a similar cause an account of which was given in the Union and commented upon in the Democrat several months ago Indeed it Is a practice becoming com mon everywhere and one which all lovers of landscape architecture would be pleased to see adopted in Woodland Miss Lee closed with a tolling appeal to the valley to wakeup The great northwest was asleep she said while we were digging gold now we i asleep while they are getting gold the gold of commerce and choice of citi YOUNG LIVES IMPERILED lolling which will roll benefit into Woodland some future inasmuch pared to receive them have where well Let UB comfort even luxury shall be at the command of those who come lo spy out the land and spread among their fellows the wondrous tales of what we have to offer Los Angeles has Its public houses to which the winter tourist from the Inhospitable cast annually turns his eager face River tide San Diego have Inns whence none need turn away except it be with keen regret that time will not permit him to remain longer But what about the greater more fertile belter more blessed to Where on Its 6000000 acres stands the Inn In which the tourist or he who seeks a home and the citizens there they would never get desirable Immigrants to stay under auch conditions They would come make money and leave They agreed with him went to work and now Fresno is one of the most beautiful and prosperous cities on the coast More lias been done there In two years last past than in seven years before in beautifying He believed in women talcing hold of this work Deny it as wo may but dress Is an element In character We do respect the well dressed person and do regard the cleanly as better than the unclean So it is with town Mr Wright agent of the San Fran cisco Promotion Committee for that organization extended the hand of sympathy That organization would be glad to aid as best it might this new spirit The committee was born of an address before the San Francisco cham ber of commerce by General Green The merchants then woke up and went on a trip to and through the valley of the Sacramento and really discovered it to themselves for many had no idea ot Its greatness and promise Mr Booth of Butter county explain ed how children and others by being taught how to save and plant walnuts ind almonds can In brie time with little cultivation which the feeblest can do create hundreds of thousands of dollars of wealth and add great Beauty in adornment Mrs Groves president of tlie Wo mens Town Improvement Club of Redding interestingly described how bat organisation had secured much improvement Mrs Albert Elkus president of the Saturday Club of Sacramento said she would do all she could to Induce her club to come into line and join in the proposed good work She approv ed of what she had heard and looked hopefully for results Mrs A A God dard president of the Tuesday Club said she had not come prepared She had no knowledge of the work of the federated clubs of the valley Her club had done some public spirited work in Sacramento While It Is a literary organization purely she would do all sha could to have it cast Its influence with the new movement A resolution was passed asking Mr the success of Yolo countys exhibit tlie latit state fair was largely due to the energy and good judgment of two of our club members I refer to Mrs T S Spaulding and Mrs Andy Jackson We also have what I hope is a par donable pride in our position on the St Louis Exposition Committee through our faithful and efficient past president Miss Carrie Blowers and 1 believe we cannot cover ourselves with all the glory as Miss Blowers is alsS of the Federa ted Clubs of thia valley The president of the Woodland Club also furnished us the following concerning a speech made by a Wood land delegate The address of Harriet Stoddard Lee of Woodland on The sipi Congress and its Bearings on improvement Clubs was full of logic and eloquence and easily conceded the best feature of the business session of the Federated Clubs Miss Lees vacation was spent in the great northwest thereby affording her this opportunity which she so happily used Saturday for the stimulation and incentive to civic betterment in our own Sacramento valley She declared when among this splendid body of men representing states west of the Mississippi and heard them discussing all the problems touching the irrigation development of re sources opening up of new avenues and building and Improvement of homes she saw as she had never seen before the real purpose place and im portance of the work of such clubs as we are trying to promote It gave a new impetus which she would like to see operating in every commu Helen and Isabel the little daughters of Mr and Mrs J V old were the principal figures in t runaway accident Sunday and thai neither of them was killed seems al most miraculous Dr F Hollund who had arranged to go fishing with Mr had just hitching th latters marc to a the children who were in the corral begged the

they were at he time of her last visit ten years ago Their spirit of progress and eagerness to secure desirable immigration ex cited her admiration They talked only of their advantages and opportunities If they had any deformities or draw backs they were carefully concealed She illustrated this by telling of a fine hotel in Seattle which for some reason had been arrested in its construction before half finished The hotel how ever bad so cleverly advertised in tlie east before its beginning that travelers from that quarter sought its accommodations as soon as they reach ed the city But when they enquired lor this great hotel or insisted upon being carried thither they were promptly that the rooms were all full and they could not be accom Tins kind of pardonable
