The room was tastefully decorated with pepper boughs, ferns and smllax intersperced with roses. The taxidermy specimens of W. R. Horton were also in evidence and added much to the attractiveness of the room. Prof. W. I. T. Hoovej* was master of ceremonies. We giv^^low a program of the participants.

Pomona The customary joy aifl'^rriment of Holiday festivities was Shadowed with uudlsguked sadness t^oughout this entire commnnlty on tjiis Christmas day; for on the very of its dawning occurred in heart of the city one of the most distressing^ailroad accidents in the mnals ol'Southem California. Just at the hour when people were going from their faormes to attend the Christmas exeroises of song I and joyous sentiment at the various churches—at about 6:55.p. m.—an awful crash was heard at jb^^unetiou of White avenue and the^outhem Pacific railroad, followed hj^ the shriek of escaping steam and the' piercing cries The trida had jpiaps^Mb track at the curve where the tío^narLordsburg branch of the railroajl turns from White avenue to connec^ith the main line. And there in th^pitchy darkness that succej^ded the^udden extinction of the lights of the train—for the moon had not yet risen and the nearest street* electric light was a block away—amid the wreckage of an engine which had turned^ completely over and was standing right side up, stripped of all projections, with its tender utteri demolished and bottom side up; a bination smoking, express and bag. oar smashei^lmost into "kindling lying on its roof five or six rods ' the track with^ bicycles, trunks baggage scattered _|gpomÍ8Cuou about; the second coach from the front of the train lying almost on its roof ahead of the engine and collapsed so that a person could sparcely crawl through its ruins; the third passenger coach lying still ahead of the second and partly on its side with the rear end on the track and the front end in the ditch and stove in somewhat; and the last passenger coach standing on the track intact except for a few broken windows; and trucks, broken running-gear and debris of the train scattered In every direction;—amid <^v.ch wreckage were several scores’ of people burled in^’im instant, and the only wonder is t^t the list of killed and injured is not larger. News of the wrpok sphjad rapidly in all directions asá help oame quickly with lights and vehicles to aid in rescuing the injured from among the debris and taking them to the hotels and other places where they could be given proper care and medicAY' assistance. Hundreds of people wera soon at the scene of the accident. Thiiteen of the victims were taken to the Pacific hotel and among them the enghieer of the train. Four—all unconscious—were Y^aoed on mattresses spread on the áoor of the upper room of the fire hall, one being the brakeman of the train and another George Shanklin, of Santa Barbara county, both of f horn died during the night. Many others less seriously injured Werd taken to the homes of friends or driven to their, own homes in Pomona, Chino or On- V i tario. The local physicians respcmded fwomptly to summons and willingly rendered all possible medical assistance until the physicians sent put from Los Angeles by the railroad company ar-" rived with the wrecking train shortly after 10 o’clock. Nearly every local physician was on tJie scene within a short time, tele-leones being kept busy summoning them. T.
